Alhamdu Lillahi since Friday has been confirmed and declared as the Eid Day, those of us who would not be performing the Hajj this year should take the opportunity to fast on Thursday gaining double reward.One for following the Sunnah of the Prophet fasting on Mondays and Thursdays and the other of the extra ordinary reward of two years for fasting on the Arafah Day which is Kaffara for Sanatain or to years ibadah thus gaining the atonement of two years sins. We should not forget these are the best for doingAmalal Saliha which our Creator Allah (S.W.T) loves more than any other days of the year.May He give us the Taufiq to do Amaal.
