Fasting on Sacred Days

Question: When should we observe fasts on sacred days?
Sacred days are the days that come after sacred nights. For example, Friday night is the night that connects Thursday to Friday.

The Night of Barat:
It is the 15th night of the month of Sha'ban. Its day is the day that follows this night; that is, its day is Sha'ban 15. One who wants to fast should fast this day. If it coincides with Friday or Saturday, one should also fast a day before it or after it. A hadith-i sharif says:
(Spend the night of 15th of Sha'ban performing acts of worship and its day fasting. Allahu ta'ala declares on that night, "Isn't there anyone to seek forgiveness, so that I shall forgive? Isn't there anyone to ask for sustenance, so that I shall give sustenance? Isn't there anyone who has trouble, so that I shall grant health and well-being? Anyone can ask for anything, so that I shall give it." This state lasts until daybreak.) [Ibn Maja]
