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.

The Dark Side of Islam?

And then there are things in Islam which are, for the lack of a better word, sour or even bitter. Such as Allah being Maaliki Youm-id-Deen, Riba being haram, Hell fire, people going in Hell, lowering your gaze and did I mention Hell?

Whilst every effort has been made to render this translation from it’s original Arabic source to English, one must appreciate the rich nature of the Arabic language and how difficult it can be to accurately capture the true essence of the Arabic text in any language. Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says:

Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur.aan in order that you may understand.[1]

This book[*] and any other book translated from Arabic should never allow the reader to become complacent and hold back from learning the Arabic language, ever! Rather, it should only serve a temporary purpose in assisting the student of knowledge on his way until he has attained his goal in having learnt the Arabic language.

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.
