Question: Assalamualeikum! How are you? Question, tell me please, how many times did the Prophet Muhammad fast in Ramadan? (Dima, Surgut)
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh!
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious to all in this world and in the next world only the Merciful to the believers.
After a year and a half after the migration of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), 10th of the month Shaban the verse on the obligation of fasting in the month of Ramadan was sent down (Surah al-Baqarah, verse 183). And then the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) fasted for 8 Ramadans (according to another rivayat 9). Five of them were 29 days, and the remaining 30.
And Allah knows best.
