باب اسْتِحْبَابِ صَوْمِ سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ مِنْ شَوَّالٍ اتِّبَاعًا لِرَمَضَانَ
Chapter: It is Mustahabb (Recommended) to Fast Six Days in Shawwaal Following Ramadhaan

عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ الأَنْصَارِيِّ، - رضى الله عنه - أَنَّهُ حَدَّثَهُ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ:‏ مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ سِتًّا مِنْ شَوَّالٍ كَانَ كَصِيَامِ الدَّهْرِ

It was narrated on the authority of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (radiyallahu anh) that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying:

"He who observed the fast of Ramadhaan and then followed it with six (fasts) of Shawwaal; it would be as if he fasted perpetually." (Muslim, Hadith no: 1164)
Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh said,

وكل قول ينفرد به المتأخر عن المتقدمين، ولم يسبقه إليه أحد منهم، فإنه يكون خطأ كما قال الإمام أحمد بن حنبل‏‏

"All statements that had been said by the Muta'akhirrn (latter ones) differing from the Mutaqaddimn (predecessors) and that had not been previously mentioned by any other, is a mistake. As Imm Ahmad bin Hanbal Rahimahullh said,

‏إياك أن تتكلم في مسألة ليس لك فيها إمام‏

"Refrain from speaking about a matter without an Imm!.." (Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 21/291)

Bismillh,

Just a reminder!..
Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah (Rahimahullh) stated,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)
