Following on from that nother category of prohibited fasts. Friday's an incredibly special day for all Muslims, wherever you are.
So why is it that it can't be singled out on its own as an object of fast as far as
signaling or Friday, for keeping the warranty fast, it is prohibited, because Friday is the main day for the Muslims in the week, we can call it the weekly or the day is important for the Muslims. And we offer congregation salah, and we meet relatives, the meter friends, too fast on this day is not preferable. And furthermore,
it is negating, doing the opposite of what the Jews and Christians do. They prefer fasting on the main day.

The blood perfect said that do not single out the night preceding Friday for offering the night Salah night prayer, and neither single out Friday for a voluntary fast unless you're used to fasting unless you're accustomed to fasting and then Friday falls on that. So as I mentioned earlier that Fidesz cannot be singled out, you know because you don't copy the other non Muslim the Jews and the Christians unless it's a normal practice and you habit and it happens to fall on the day no problem. If you fast on a Friday is preceded by fasting one day before or one day after there's no problem or if it falls on your normal routine of fasting like ordinary days, or the tedious I am will be
