Question: Do you want God to prescribe for you the reward of fasting the whole year as the reward of fasting Ramadan? To find out the answer to this question, follow with us these issues related to fasting the six days of Shawwal.
Issue: Fasting the six days of Shawwal is a recommended Sunnah, and its virtue is great. The Messenger of God, peace be upon him, said: Whoever fasts Ramadan and then follows it with six days of Shawwal, it is like fasting for eternity. He has the reward of fasting for eternity, in the sense that he has the reward of fasting Ramadan in the whole year, so whoever fasts Ramadan, and God grants him to fast the six days of Shawwal, he has obtained by God’s grace the reward of fasting the whole year as the reward of fasting Ramadan, and that is the grace of God that He gives to whomever He wills, and that whoever feels this reward does not The six fasting days of Shawwal can be omitted regardless of the circumstances.
Issue: It is permissible to fast the six days of Shawwal, scattered or successively, from the beginning, middle or end of the month.
Issue: Fasting the six days of Shawwal is a specific supererogatory act, and in order for the fasting person to obtain its full reward, the intention to fast each day must be made from the night.
Issue: It is better for the one who has to make up the missed days of Ramadan to start with it. Because he has cleared himself of his obligation, and it is permissible to start fasting the six before making up for it. Because the judiciary must be slack, not immediately, and the six fasts are narrow in Shawwal.
Issue: It is not correct to combine the intention to fast the six days with the intention to make up for it. Because each of them is intended in and of itself, the reward for fasting forever is dependent on fasting six days of Shawwal in excess of Ramadan, and because a good deed is ten-fold, so fasting Ramadan is rewarded for ten months, and six days of Shawwal is paid for two months, so Ramadan with the six is like fasting the whole year.. Combining the intention of making up the missed fasts with the intention of fasting six, the sum of what he fasted for thirty days if Ramadan was complete.
Issue: The virtue of fasting for eternity is attained by the one who fasts the six days of Shawwal by the grace of God Almighty, whether he begins by making up for it or before fasting it before making up for it.
Issue: Whoever fasts Ramadan and then fasts the six days of Shawwal, God will write to him, by His grace, the reward of fasting for a whole year like the reward of fasting the blessed Ramadan.
