عَنْ أَبِي قَتَادَةَ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ
أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ سُئِلَ عَنْ صَوْمِ الِاثْنَيْنِ فَقَالَ فِيهِ وُلِدْتُ وَفِيهِ أُنْزِلَ عَلَيَّ

*The beloved prophet Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam was asked about his continuous fast on Mondays. The prophet answered: ‘‘It is because I was born a Monday and also I was firstly revealed on a Monday.’’Sahih Muslim.*

*Had there been any practice to be held in happiness of the birth of Rasouloullah, then it would have been only fasting on Mondays.*

*That Monday was really graceful upon the humanity when the light of prophecy was born in Makkah.*
*It was on a Monday during the month of Ramadhaan that the beloved prophet SAW was firstly revealed.*

*Amongst the main events of the life of Rasouloullah is Hijrah or emigration. Know that that reported in Bukhari that the beloved prophet SAW reached Madinah on a Monday:*

فبصر برسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأصحابه مبيضين يزول بهم السراب فلم يملك اليهودي أن قال بأعلى صوته يا معاشر العرب هذا جدكم الذي تنتظرون فثار المسلمون إلى السلاح فتلقوا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بظهر الحرة فعدل بهم ذات اليمين حتى نزل بهم في بني عمرو بن عوف وذلك يوم الاثنين من شهر ربيع الأول

*That Monday brightened Madinah with joy, peace and incomparable blessings.*

*Then came the saddest day for the world. When the choice of meeting his Lord was given to him, the prophet turned back to the holy ambitions of his life and chose the destiny to meet his Lord. That day also was a Monday.(Bukhari)*  عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت
دخلت على أبي بكر رضي الله عنه فقال في كم كفنتم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قالت في ثلاثة أثواب بيض سحولية ليس فيها قميص ولا عمامة وقال لها في أي يوم توفي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قالت يوم الاثنين

*So the day peculiar to the prophet Muhammad SAW is Monday. Sunnah to fast on Mondays and Thurdays.(Nassai)*
