Fasting the Six days of Shawwal month:
The Prophet (Blessings & Peace be upon him) said;
عن أبي أيُّوب الأنصاري رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ((مَن صام رمضان ثم أتبَعَه ستًّا من شوَّال، كان كصيام الدهر))؛ رواه مسلم
“Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan and then follows it with the fasting of 6 days of the month of Shawwal, it will be considered as if he/she fasted all his/her life.” reported by Imam Muslim
Since the year in the lunar calendar is less than the solar calendar and due to the fact that one day equals 10 days in terms of rewards because in Islam every good deed is multiplied to at least 10 times, Ramadan is considered like 300 days and the six days make up 60 days. So 360 days is the longest a lunar calendar can be.
In this hadith, the Messenger of Allah (Blessings & Peace be upon him) encourages us to continue the momentum of fasting in Ramadan so we do not abruptly change without a transition. A person can do the six days immediately after Eid or can do 2 days a week so long as the 6 days are in the month of Shawwal.
