The 6 fasts of Shawwal

The 6 fasts of Shawwal

On the authority of Ayyub (May Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said,

“Whoever fasts Ramadhan and then follows it up with six days from Shawwal, it will be as if they fasted the entire year.”

[Muslim, Abu Dawood and Ibn Majah]


The Ulema have said that one can fast the six fasts of Shawwal consecutively or separately.
