Ramadhan's over. What's next? Free Islamic online course and 6 Days of Syawwal fasting


Before I forget, Seekers Hub is open for registration now and it closes in 8 days. Hurry go register. Take this opportunity especially for full-time working people as this is ideal for us since we can follow the course at our own pace, from home, anywhere! It's free and highly credible too. Of course, donation is always welcomed. Remember, charity does not make us any less richer. It's actually increasing our akherah's savings account!

So belated Eid Moubarak to all who observes it! So yeah, Ramadan has left us and time definitely flew by! Let's make du'aa that we be given the chance to experience another Ramadan and also to keep up with our good habits which we have been at for the past month. After all, Islam is not all about Ramadan, yes? So keep inspiring and encouraging yourself to stick to those habits which brings you closer to your one and only Creator, Allah.

May Allah (SWT) accept all our du'aas (prayers) and other ibadah (acts of worship) during the holy month of Ramadan. Amin.

Also, Syawal comes after the month of Ramadan. And when I hear the month of Syawal, the first thing that comes to mind is "6 white days" i.e. the fasting of 6 days during this month.

Just in case there are some people (such as myself years back-2011) who's not been enlightened on this matter, six white days refers to fasting for 6 days in the month of Syawal. It is said that the ajr/rewards/pahala for this ibadah is equivalent to the ajr of fasting for a year. Hence, why not do it if you're capable, no? =)

Quote quote:

Abu Ayyoob (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadaan and follows it with six days of Shawwaal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime.” (Narrated by Muslim, Abu Dawood, al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i and Ibn Maajah).

"Sesiapa yang berpuasa Ramadan kemudian diikuti dengan puasa enam hari pada bulan Syawal, seolah-olah dia berpuasa sepanjang tahun." (Hadis riwayat Muslim).

Just a general guideline: You don't necessarily have to fast for 6 consecutive days although that is the most recommended i.e. 6 days starting 2nd of Syawwal. However, as long as you complete these 6 days of fasting in the month of Syawwal, it still gives us the rewards a year of fasting.

SO SEIZE THIS OPPORTUNITY fellow brothers and sisters! Carpe diem as time and tide waits for no men.

WAllahua'lam (Allah knows best).

Can't Do Without Allah


The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.
