Virtues of Fasting Six Days of Shawwal

Hadith

روى مسلم في صحيحه (1164) عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
قَالَ : ( مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ سِتًّا مِنْ شَوَّالٍ
كَانَ كَصِيَامِ الدَّهْرِ ).

Abu Ayyoob al-Ansaari (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Whoever fasts Ramadaan then follows it with six days of Shawwaal, it is as if he fasted a lifetime.”

Saheeh Muslim, 1164
