means one of his practices one of his ways, pick them and revive them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. One of these is that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam encouraged us to fast every Monday and Thursday. So if we were to fast every Monday and Thursday, we would earn a reward of reviving a Sunnah we would earn the mercy of Allah His blessings, and Allah would grant us our supplications whatever we're asking him for. Remember at the end of the fast every day, wherever you are across the globe, at your timezone.

And on top of that, earning the pleasure of Allah when we start giving importance to the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad
