السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

Abu Ayyub al-Ansari narrated that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said: “He who fasts Ramadan, and six of Shawwal, it will be (in terms of rewards) as if the fasted a whole year.” [Muslim, at-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Ahmad, Ibn Majah]

“A person who has missed days of fasting in Ramadan may fast the optional six days of Shawwal with the intention of both making up for these missed days and observing the optional fasting of six days of Shawwal. He or she will then get double benefit simultaneously: making up for the missed days and getting the reward of fasting the six days of Shawwal, for it is established in Islam that one’s acts are judged by one’s intentions.However, it is recommended that one makes up for the missed fasts separately from fasting the six days of Shawwal [so as to get extra reward].” Sheikh `Atiyyah Saqr, former head of Al-Azhar Fatwa Committee.

It is highly recommended to fast six days of the month of Shawwal, but it is not obligatory. Those who want to fast can fast after `Eid Al-Fitr any six days during Shawwal. It is not required to fast six days continuously without any interruption. One can fast according to convenience any time during the month.

Now that Allah made clear to us where we have to go, Allah makes us describe the previous people who were successful in crossing the straight, long, difficult journey upwards to Allah.This is important even in our worldly dealings when we look up to the experiences of people who have been successful in fields that we have questions in. When you are in college, you ask for advice from senior students or graduates, because they have successfully been through the hurdles of academic life. Likewise, in this ayah we ask for the path of those people upon whom Allah has already showered His blessings. A side-note, this is in past tense, which subtly shows that the real role models of Islam are not the ones who are still alive, rather the ones who are gone. The ones who are alive are as volatile as us and as prone to the dangers of the shaytaan. The graduation ceremony is death…

Plagiarism

3:188

Think not that those who rejoice in what they have done (or brought about), and love to be praised for what they have not done,- think not you that they are rescued from the torment, and for them is a painful torment. 3:188

In the Cover to Cover series by Bayyinah TV, in the context of this Surah one of the qualities of the Munafiq was to take credit for whatever good that came the Muslim’s way. So if something good came, they’d say “yeah we were right there with you”, but if something bad happened then they’s say “Thank God we took precaution beforehand”. Essentially the idea is that they love getting credit for what they haven’t done. And that idea is exactly what plagiarism is. and some more too.
