Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. What is the wisdom of fasting for three days in every lunar month?

الحكمة من صيام أيام البيض

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions. Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. As to what follows: In response to your question, we say: The wisdom of fasting the days of the full moon (Ayaam al-Bidh) is to increase the blessings of the ummah by performing more goods deeds which lead to great rewards. It was said that the reason for fasting during these days is that this is thanking Allah for his blessings in his complete illumination of the moon which benefits people at night and enables them to attain what benefits them.  It was also said the complete illumination of the moon results in the surge of blood which  widens the passageway of the veins, thus fasting was legislated to constrict these passageways because Satan circulates through the human body like blood as has been transmitted by al-Bukhari (2038) and Muslim (2174). And Allah knows best.
