DIVINE MATHEMATICS OF SHAWWAAL.
It is highly recommended for Muslims to fast any 6-days of Shawwaal either continuously or interruptedly except the 1st day of Shawwal i.e. (EID; fasting is prohibited on eid). In this, there is great virtue & an immense reward. The Prophet (sallAllaahu‘alayhiwasallam) explained this when he said: “Whoever fasts for six days after Eid al-Fitr has completed the year: (whoever does a good deed (hasanah) will have ten hasanah like it).” According to another report: “Allaah has made for each hasanah ten like it, so a month is like fasting ten months, and fasting six days completes the year.” (Saheeh al-Targheebwa’l-Tarheeb, 1/421). Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah with the wording: “Fasting for the month of Ramadaan brings the reward of ten like it, and fasting for six days brings the reward of two months, and that is the fasting of the whole year.”
Another of the important benefits of fasting six days of Shawwaal is that is makes up for any shortfall in a person’s obligatory Ramadaan fasts, because no one is free of shortcomings or sins that have a negative effect on his fasting. On the Day of Resurrection, some of his naafil deeds will be taken to make up the shortcomings in his obligatory deeds, as the Prophet (saw) said……….” (Abu Dawood).
NOW, LET US DO THE PROPHETIC/DIVINE MATHS TOGETHER.
1 MONTH OF RAMADHAN X 10 hasanah = 300/290 DAYS (10 MONTHS).
6 DAYS OF SHAWWAL X 10 hasanah = 60 DAYS (2 MONTHS)
TOTAL = 12MONTHS (1 YEAR).
EVERY YEAR FASTING X AGE FROM MATURITY = FASTING A LIFETIME.
Doing this every year from the time one reaches maturity is like fasting the whole lifetime. Abu Ayyoob (radiallahu anihu) reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadaan and follows it with six days of Shawwaal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime.” (Abu Dawood, al-Tirmidhi).
