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.

For those of you who’ve asked me about Bayyinah TV, it has 3 archives : Arabic with Husna, Cover to Cover and Divine Speech. The Cover to Cover series is “a flowing translation of the Qur’an with attention to historical context and subtleties that are lost in translation.  This series is the recommended place to start in one’s quest to understand the relevance and counsel of the Qur’an in easy language. ” The following are my notes for this program and are probably the next best thing for those who can’t access Bayyinah TV. So Surah #1, Ayah #1 is our starting point. Bismillah!

Yes this is a re-post but then again it is worth it. We kick of the Bayyinah Dream Program series by revisiting a very volatile subject. It can be as small as a comment on Facebook or as large as a 5000 strong protest. In the “freedom of speech” era we  encounter attacks/insults on Islam in many shapes and forms and therefore it is critical for us to react (if at all) in a manner that is guided by the Quran. This time from Surah Falaq. Yeah really.
