After Ramadan, comes the month of Shawal. We fast six days during this month. It is Sunnah and not obligatory. According to Hadeeth, (who he fasts Ramadan and follows that with six days in Shawal, it is as if he fasts forever.)
This is built on one good deed equals that ten times the same. so the idea is like this. Ramadan is thirty days. if you multiply all that by ten, it equals three hundred days. the six days of Shawal are consequently sixty days. That makes a total of three hundred and sixty days. The number of days in a year. I am doing that at the moment and many other Muslims in different parts of the world are doing the same.
The six days are not necessarily in order. You can fast on the second day of Shawal and then take the fourth or the eighth day. I prefer doing that in one go because my digestive system is accustomed to fasting since the month of Ramadan. Once more, happy Eid to you.

Dear Jonathan, hello, your name reminds me of an actor by the name of Jonathanز he was very kind and good to his family. Then a bad man came and stole the money from the family but Jonathan stopped the burglar and he was taken to jail.
Islam is a great religion that every thing ordered to do has a big benifit for us. A clear example is what you stated in this articl, which is about fasting six days of Shawal. This fasting of six days of Shawal, which follows Ramadan, is necessary to make body gets accustomed to Iftar days slowly.
Jazak Allahu khairan ya Abdulaleem! I agree with that, and add that our digestive system accustomed to thirty days of fasting and these six days will be like getting ready for your daily (hum hum). I noticed that some people do not agree with that. It is their business, isn't it? Thanks, Abdulaleem for your nice comment on the six days of Shawal.
3 days to go for me here...
