Shawwal fasts


As Salamu alaykom wa rehmatullahi wa barakatuhu wa EID Mubaruk !!! :D

Please tell me more about fasting 6 days of Shawwal, the procedure and what days? Is there a day, if you fast, is like fasting all six days?

wa `alaykum salam,

It is sunnah to fast six  days in Shawwal. Thawban (r) relates that the Prophet (s) said, “Whoever fasts Ramadan, and then six days after Eid, it is like fasting an entire year. Whoever does a good deed shall have ten times its reward.”
(ibn Majah)

That special day is six days after the first day of Eid (i.e. seventh day of Shawwal).
