Fasts of Shawwaal

Fasts of Shawwaal

Hadrat Abu Ayyub Ansari (Radi Allahu’ Anhu) reported that the Beloved Messenger of Allah (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa Sallam) said:  ” The one who observes the fasts of Ramadan and follows this with six voluntary fasts of Shawwaal will be regarded as though he had fasted perpetually ” (Muslim Shareef). In another Hadith, Hadrat Jabir bin Abdullah (Radi Allahu’Anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa Sallam) said:  ” The one who observes six fasts of Shawwaal after Eid al-Fitr will be regarded as though he has fasted the entire year.”

It is excellent to keep these six fasts on six different days in Shawwaal but if kept consecutively there is no harm in it.

May Allah Almighty give us the guidance and Tawfiq to act upon what we learn.     Ameen.
