Bismillah Wa Hamdulillah Wa Salatu Was Salaam ala RasulAllah
It’s been several days since the month of Ramadan went by, Alhamdulillah all praises are due to Allah Swt for giving me and the muslim ummah that made it to it a chance to live through this blessed month, may Allah accept my, yours and other Muslim brother and sisters ibadaat done during this month and on others times only for His sake. Ameen
The schedule of daily routine changes during the month of Ramadan however things are slowly getting back to the usual routine including the islamic center’s and mosques that hold regular duroos and activities.
Now as far as fasting is concerned then one should fast 6 days of shawwal rite after eid, they do not have to be done consecutively but one should hasten to do good deeds.
Abu Ayyoob (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, that is the fasting of a lifetime.” Narrated by Ahmad, 5/417; Muslim, 2/822; Abu Dawood, 2433; al-Tirmidhi, 1164.
And there are other reports too regarding the virtues of fasting the 6 days of shawwal.
One thing that is sad which is noticed after Ramadan is the people turning up less in the mosques for regular salaat. During the month of Ramadan the mosques were filled up with people, rows of people, kids, recitation of Quran and dhikr; now rite after Ramadan it is as if the mosques had visitors that left all of a sudden.
May Allah Swt accept our Ramadan and gives us a chance to make it through more of the upcoming blessed month’s of Ramadan with our eeman being at it’s peak. Ameen
