It was narrated that 'Abdullah bin Masud said:

"The Messenger of Allah used to fast three days in the middle of every month, and he rarely did not fast on Friday."
أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ شَقِيقٍ، قَالَ أَبِي أَنْبَأَنَا أَبُو حَمْزَةَ، عَنْ عَاصِمٍ، عَنْ زِرٍّ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ، قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَصُومُ ثَلاَثَةَ أَيَّامٍ مِنْ غُرَّةِ كُلِّ شَهْرٍ وَقَلَّمَا يُفْطِرُ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ ‏.‏
