The scientific signs in Fasting the white days
In the name of Allah…..

Praise be to Allah who makes the science corresponds to the religion.And peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, -peace and blessings be upon him- the master of Fasting people, and peace be upon his Family, companions and upon all Muslims who Fast the white days……Among the prophetic signs of the best of human beings the recommendation of Fasting the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth days of every lunar month.

"It's narrated that the prophet -peace and blessings be upon him- didn't break his Fast in the white days whether he was travelling or staying [Al-Albani]

«كان رسول الله - صلى الله عليه وسلم - لا يفطرأيام البيض في حضر و لا في سفر»

It's also narrated that "the prophet -peace and blessings be upon him- was ordering us to Fast the white days (thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth). [Al-Albani]

«كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يأمرنا بصيام أيام البيض ثلاث عشر وأربع عشر وخمس عشر...»

The prophet -peace and blessings be upon him- said "Fasting three days of every month (13th, 14th&15th) is equal to Fasting the life time” [Declared Hasan by Al-Albani]

«صيام ثلاثة أيام من كل شهر صيام الدهر ،وأيام البيض صبيحة ثلاث عشرة ، وأربع عشرة ، وخمس عشرة»

Firstly: what are the white days?

The white days are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth of every lunar month, they were named with this name because the moon becomes full on them and the light becomes strong which makes their nights are completely luminous especially in desert, after that name was used for the days.

Secondly: what's the wisdom of Fasting the white days?

To answer this question, we have to know the following scientific facts:

First: there is a relevant relationship (proportional) between the Earth and Human body as for (distribution):
· The earth surface consists of about %80 of liquids (seas, oceans and rivers) and about %20solids (lands)
· Also the human body consists of about %80 of liquids and about %20 of solids, (this was proved by sciences).

Second: there is relevant relationship (proportional) between the earth and human body as for (composition):
The earth consists of various elements like calcium, magnesium, sodium, bicarbonate, sulphate, iron….etc. also the human body consists of the same elements.

· For example, if you read the consists of a natural mineral water bottle, you will find that it includes the following elements, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, iron…..etc.
· Whereas the earth is the source of water whether from wells, rivers or by desalination of oceans or seas' water, and we drink this water so that our bodies consist of the same elements.
· If we also analyzed the components of Vegetables, Fruits and different kinds of food, we would find that They consists of the same previous elements (as they arise from the earth) and whereas we eat them, our bodies consist of the same earth elements (whether liquids or solids)

The foregoing points prove that there is a relevant strong bilateral relationship between the earth and human body.
Notice the Glorious Quran proved that relevant relationship between the earth and human body, as the man was created from clay, Almighty Allah says: "…. And began the creation of man from clay"[Al- Sajdah 32:7]

{...وَبَدَأَ خَلْقَ الْإِنسَانِ مِن طِينٍ}

Transliteration: Wa Bada'a Khalqa Al-'Insāni Min Ţīnin

And the clay is from the earth so the man consequently consists of the same earth elements. The Almighty Allah says " From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time." [Taha 20:55]

{مِنْهَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ وَفِيهَا نُعِيدُكُمْ وَمِنْهَا نُخْرِجُكُمْ تَارَةً أُخْرَىٰ}

Transliteration: Minhā Khalaqnākum Wa Fīhā Nuīdukum Wa Minhā Nukhrijukum Tāratan 'Ukhrá

….I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah……

Third: there is also a strong relevant relationship between Moon and Earth, in one side, and Moon with Human body in another side:

· The Moon has gravity on the Earth which causes ebb and flow (as it's scientifically known).
· The moon also has gravity on the human body, which causes ebb and flow for the Man because the human body -as previously mentioned- consist of the same elements of the earth.
This ebb and flow effect on the earth and human body reaches the peak in the white days; (thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth days of every lunar month) the ebb and flow effect on the earth appears in oceans and seas, while this effect on the man appears as an increase of excitement and agitation (nervosa, tension, confusion and worry), which leads to an increase in crimes ratio.

The greatest evidence for that is the following:-

· As for the earth, if you went to the Sea shore on these days, you would see the ebb and flow reaching the peak.
· As for the Man, if you went to police stations, courts or read newspapers, you would find that the biggest ratio of crimes, suicide, theft, accidents and divorce happened on these days.

Dr. Muhammad Ali Al Bar, reported on his web site, that: Dr. Leber, the psychologist from Miami in USA, said: "there is a strong relation between the completion of Moon cycle and Human violence actions, especially between it and those who are alcoholic, have criminal tendencies and emotional not stability.”

After he had collected the statistics and analyzations from the accidents record in hospitals and police stations and compared their dates with the lunar days, it became clear for him that crimes committing ratio and destructive roads accidents are linked to the moon cycle completion.

Also the Persons who are suffering from psychological disorders, personality dualism and old people are more vulnerable to the moon cycle effect.

His studies also proved that the greatest ratio of divorce and severe disputes take place in the middle of lunar month when the moon is full.

Dr. Leber explains his theory saying:" the human body, like earth surface, consists of %80 of water and %20 of solids, so he believes that the moon gravity is responsible for ebb and flow in both human bodies and oceans, when the moon is full in the white days.

Dr. Al Bar commented on this study saying:" the prophetic medicine for these problem is to fast the three white days, because Fasting reduces the water ratio in the human body during this period, in which the moon effect on the man reaches the peak, and that helps the Man to control his body powers and tendencies, feel with psychological purity, avoid the gravity effect and to have comfort, calmness and health.

……Glory be to Allah…..

The great uses of this discovery (negative effect of moon gravity on the man in the white days):

As this scientific truth was proved, the countries officials and planners should take it into consideration to have the best uses and avoid the greatest dangers.

The following are some examples:

1. On the security status, Policemen should be put on alert to face the probable increase in crimes and violations (at this period of lunar month)

2. As for the traffic level, Traffic police should be put on alert to face the probable increase in road accidents (at this period of lunar month).

3. As for the education level, the exams and interviews shouldn't be done (at this period of lunar month)

4. As for the health status, the medical staff of emergency section should be put on alert to receive the probable accidents victims (at this period of lunar month).

5. On the maintenance level, the dangerous maintenance for electricity or engines should be avoided (at this period of lunar month)

Benefits of Fasting the white days

Therefore, the recommendation of Fasting the three white days is considered a prophetic sign because of its great uses such as avoiding the horrible crimes accidents and dangerous diseases ...Fasting isn't only a kind of worship, obedience and a great reward for Muslims, but also it's a kind of mercy, health, protection and happiness for the man.

……Allah is the Greatest……

The prophet Muhammad -peace and blessings be upon him- is really the mercy bestowed upon us by Almighty Allah who says about the prophet Muhammad "And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.'' [Al-Anbiya’ 21:107]

{وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّارَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ}

Transliteration: Wa Mā 'Arsalnāka 'Illā Raĥmatan Lilālamīna

Finally: This scientific truth reveals one of the prophet's miracles that indicates his prophet hood and also asserts that Islam is the true religion revealed from the Creator of the earth and heavens who made the scientific laws of nature. Fourteen centuries ago, nobody knew this scientific truth.

Almighty Allah says about his prophet -peace and blessings be upon him- "Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination, : It is not but a revelation revealed" [Al-Najm 53:3-4]

Transliteration: Wa Mā Yanţiqu Ani Al-Hawá (3) 'In Huwa 'Illā Waĥyun Yūĥá (4)


May be the aim of this prophetic sign is to remind the Man to be back always to Allah and not to be misled by the arrogance of science and development. The Almighty Allah says : He who fears [Allah] will be reminded., But the wretched one will avoid it –"[ Al-A’la]

{سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَن يَخْشَىٰ﴿١٠﴾وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا الْأَشْقَى﴿١١﴾}

Transliteration: Sayadhdhakkaru Man Yakhshá (10) Wa Yatajannabuhā Al-'Ashqá (11)

In addition to the blessed legislations which call to values, chastity, manhood and virtues like veil, holding beard and shortening the cloth, Islam is calling to learn all branches of science and literature including chemistry, physics, astronomy, geography, economy, politics, grammar and eloquence,…etc.

Islam really, is a religion for both individuals and country.

Almighty Allah says “We have not neglected in the Register a thing."[al-An'am 6:38]

{مَّا فَرَّطْنَا فِي الْكِتَابِ مِن شَيْءٍ ۚ...}

Transliteration: Mā Farraţnā Fī Al-Kitābi Min Shay'in

Also Allah says: " And everything We have set out in detail."[Al-Isra’ 17:12]

{...وَكُلَّ شَيْءٍ فَصَّلْنَاهُ تَفْصِيلًا}

Transliteration: Wa Kulla Shay'in Faşşalnāhu Tafşīlāan
