  • Fasting 6 days of Shawwal : The Reward of an entire year of fasting

    Fasting 6 days of Shawwal : The Reward of an entire year of fasting:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan and then follows it with six days of fasting in the month of Shawwal, it will be as if he had fasted a whole year."

    Subhaanallah! How generous is Allah who loves to give to his slaves!

    Does not have to be fasted consecutively

    These fasts do not have to be fasted consecutively as they can be fasted seperately.

    Better to make up the Qadha fasts first

    It is better to make up Qadha Fard (Making up for missed Obligatory fasts) first and seperate from the 6 voluntary fasts of Shawwal as it is more reward but many scholars say that one may also make a double intention to combine the Qadha Fard and 6 voluntary fasts of Shawwal. Many scholars also say that one may fast the 6 voluntary fasts this month and make up for the Qadha Fard fasts later.

    More Reward to fast on the Sunnah days of fasting

    It is even more rewarding to fast on the days where it is Sunnah to do voluntary fasts such as on Mondays and Thursdays and the white days (13th, 14th & 15th of each Islamic month).

    The White days in the month of Shawwal 2019 will fall on Sunday 16th June (13th) Monday 17th June (14th) and Tuesday 18th June (15th).

    Note: Add a day if you started Eid a day after on Wednesday.

    We cannot afford to miss out on such huge & easy rewards

    We may not get such an easy opportunity again to build up our bank of good deeds so we should not delay in doing good deeds lest we are taken by Death and our good deed accounts are closed forever. So the opportunity to do good is from now as we may not have a tomorrow. Surely in the Hereafter we will regret missing out on these opportunities to please Allah.

    We have until the 4th of July to keep these 6 fasts which is when the month of Shawwal ends.

    Great reminder for all of us.
    There is a clock on your forehead counting down to the time of your death. Only Allah knows how many seconds are left on it

      In Sha Allaah. 

      Had three hours of fasting left to complete a fast, but then had extreme pain, so had to take medication.
