The Six Fasts of Shawwaal

The Six Fasts of ShawwaalThe Month of Shawwaal begins with one of the most auspicious days - Eid ul Fitr. Eid ul Fitr is a day of great ibaadah and a day of immense happiness.

The Month of Shawwaal begins with one of the most auspicious days - Eid ul Fitr. Eid ul Fitr is a day of great ibaadah and a day of immense happiness.

The month of Shawwaal is further enhanced by the six fasts which can be kept within it.

Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) reports that: “Whoever completes the fasts of Ramadaan and then follows it with the six fasts of Shawwaal, it will carry the thawaab (reward) of fasting for the whole year.” (Muslim)

Scholars have commented on the six fasts stating that every good deed is multiplied by ten, therefore the reward of 30 days of Ramadaan amounts to the reward of 300 days of fasting. The six fasts of Shawwaal amounts to the rewards of 60 more days, totalling 360! A whole year’s reward of fasting!

SOME POINTS:
* The fasts are mustahabb (recommended)
* They may be kept consecutively or randomly
* They must be completed before the end of Shawwaal
