Fasting on Friday and Saturday

Abu Hurayrah quotes the Prophet as saying:

None of you should fast on Friday unless he fasts a day before or after it.

According to a Rivayah of Muslim:

"Do not single out Friday night rather than other nights for praying at night and do not single out Friday for fasting rather than other days unless it forms part of a fast that one of you is fasting." (
Bukhari, Sawm: 63; Muslim, Sıyam: 147,148; Abu Dawud, Sawm: 50; Tirmidhi, Sawm: 42)

Abdullah Ibn Busr as-Salmi related from his sister as-Samma (may Allah be pleased with her):

Rasulullah (pbuh) said:

"Do not fast on Saturday, unless it is part of what Allah has prescribed for you. If you could not find anything to eat but a grape skin or a piece of wood, you should chew it." (And after all you should not be fasting).

(Abu Dawud, Sawm: 51; Tirmidhi, Sawm: 43; Ibn Majah, Siyam: 38)
