...Outside of Ramadhan.
To what benefit is fasting these two days and why Monday and Thursday specifically? :)

The Prophet (saw) used to do this, so thats benefit enough =]

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Deeds of people are presented (to Allah) on Mondays and Thursdays. So I like that my actions be presented while I am fasting.''
[At-Tirmidhi].

Also, a muslim shud fast everyday, not necessarily fasting from food, but from evil actions, ugly behaviour etc etc

These are the days on which the angels present our actions before Allah. The Messenger (s) liked that this occur while he was in a fasting state, and the hadith stating this concludes 'each servant, who does not associate partners with Allah, will be forgiven except for a man who holds a grudge against his brother, and so it is said: hold off on these two, until they reconcile' (or something along these lines).

The best fast (food wise) is that of Dawud, one day on one day off.

RasulAllah :saws: was asked about fasting on Mondays. He said, "That is the day on which I was born and the day on which I received Revelation.''

Dani there is a story about one of the sahaba asking the prophet{pbuh} if he can fast more than ramadan and he was told(not to do it, but if he wanted) to do it monday and thursday, then the sahaba came back and asked again. He we told every second day. later on that sahaba came to the prophet {pbuh} and said that he was right that he shouldn't have fasted more than ramadan. (the commentary is that Allah{swt} loves consistency)

thought i'd share that...

The Monoculture’s complaint about Islam amounts to only one demand: Be like us!
