Recommended to Fast Six Days Following Ramadan
As Ramadan draws to a finish – just wanted to remind everyone (& myself) of this Hadith,
So as you can see, it is recommended to fast six days after the end of Ramadan, provided we do not begin with the first day of Shawwal which is the day of Eid.
- Sahih Muslim. Volume 3, Hadith #2758-2760 (Sahih), pg 247-248.
