On Thursday night, the servant’s deeds are presented before Allah

On this night the deeds of the whole week are presented before Allah. That is why the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to fast on Thursday. In this regard, the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, said:

On Thursdays and Mondays the deeds of the servant are presented before Allah Ta’ala, so I wish that I should be in a state of fasting while presenting my deeds. -Sunan Nasa’i, 2358

Forgiveness at Thursday night

The greatest virtue of fasting on this day is that Allah forgives sins through it. Abu Huraira RA. Narrated from, he said, The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays. The Prophet was asked:

Messenger of God! You (seriously) fast on Mondays and Thursdays! (What is the reason for this?). Prophet said-

Allah forgives all Muslims on Monday and Thursday. But except for those two people, who rejected each other. Allah says about them, ‘Leave them in their condition until they are reconciled.’ -Sunan Ibn Majah, 1740

Muslims who quarrel with each other and are angry with others will not be forgiven on this night either. Similarly one who breaks ties with relatives will not be forgiven on this night. This is why the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) forbade a Muslim to be angry with another Muslim for more than three days. -(Bukhari, Hadith: 6056; Muslim 2559).
