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.

Ramadan’s just around the corner and already tips and tricks for finishing the Quran in the blessed month have gone viral. It just doesn’t do justice to the Quran that we don’t even give it a chance to enter our hearts and take advantage of the personal advice it has to offer. I mean, Ramadan is the one month we get during the entire year to make a little time for the Quran and our big plan is to blitz it in the most efficient way possible? Is this what we’ve reduced the Quran to?
