Fasting in the month of Shawwal
Hazrat Abu Ayyub (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"He who observes As-Saum (the fasts) in the month of Ramadan,
and also observes As-Saum for six days in the month of Shawwal,
it is as if he has observed As-Saum for the whole year.'
' [Muslim Book 06, Chapter 36, Hadith # 2614].
In English "fasting" means to abstain from food or from certain kinds of food Voluntarily, as an observance of a holy day or as a token of grief, sorrow, or repentance.
We must wake up for suhoor as it is a Sunnah of our Rasool (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam). He has informed us that the food of suhoor is full of Barakah: "Eat suhoor, because in it lie great blessings." (Bukhari, Muslim)
It is appropriate that every Muslim should receive the blessed month of Ramadan with repentance, sincerity, resoluteness and earnestness. He/she should make the intention to perform extra acts of devotion and worship therein, including the Night Prayer (qiyam), recitation of Qur'an, and abundant charity to the poor and needy.
