Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah, he was so happy here's mine, my brothers and sisters in Islam, we are still in the month of Chawan. And from the best deeds to do in the month of Shawwal is to Fast Six days of this month. And there are many reasons for while the believers are supposed to show great concern and try their best to fast the six days of show Well, number one, and the use of Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us Whoever fasts Ramadan, and follows it up with six days of show while he earns the reward of fasting an entire year. Allahu Akbar, imagine this, you earn the reward of fasting and entire Ye, even though you will not be fasting the entire

00:00:44--> 00:01:32

year. Whenever you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explains how this is possible. In the hadith of filberg, probably Allahu Anhu and W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that fasting Ramadan is equal to 10 months of reward, as though you fasted 10 months, and six days of Chawan is two months. And so very soon, that is the entire year. The second reason for why we fast Chawan is because Chawan is the obligatory deed or it's the voluntary deed that comes after the obligation. It's the voluntary deed that comes after the obligation and the voluntary deeds that come after the obligations. Their purpose is to complete and perfect the obligation. So, in other words, none of us can say that our

00:01:32--> 00:02:03

Ramadan was complete and 100% Perfect what Allah azza wa jal wants, no one can say this. Rather, we all acknowledge that our Ramadan was imperfect and full of shortcomings. So how do we fix this problem? We Fast Six Days of Chawan and that patches up the shortcomings that took place in Ramadan. And the reason Allahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that when Allah azza wa jal is holding the sleeve accountable on the day of judgment, and he is asking him about his obligation about his for fasting about Ramadan.

00:02:04--> 00:02:18

And obviously it's incomplete. Allah azza wa jal would say to the angels on vooral Hello abdomen, see me tapa one, he will say to the angels and Allah knows best. Look into the record of my slave is his

00:02:19--> 00:03:06

does he have any voluntary fasting, if he does have voluntary fasting, it is taken, and it is added to the obligatory fasting, and the obligatory fasting would be perfect and complete. So we are in need of fasting, six days of Sure well, so that we can perfect our Ramadan. The third reason for why we fast the six days is because these six days of shawan are a good deed that are coming after a good deed. And a lot about why Muhammad Allah say, that the sign of an accepted deed is a good deed that is done after so assigned that Allah azza wa jal accepted the Ramadan is to follow it up with six days of shall Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Well Lavina the dough, the home who there

00:03:06--> 00:03:51

and those who don't so guidance and did the righteous deed, Allah azza wa jal would increase them in guidance, and he will give them Taqwa home or at their home Taqwa home. Meaning as Mahkota Rahim Allah mentioned, he will give them the ability to do good deeds. So we are in need of fasting six days of Chawan so that we can work towards this path of acceptance we want our Ramadan to be accepted a sign of that is to follow up with good deeds. And from among this is the first six days of Chawan. And finally, the last reason Allahu Allah for why we fast the 60s of Chawan as a sign as as a show of gratitude to Allah azza wa jal for allowing us to fast Ramadan Subhan Allah and this is

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

what an Alaia Brahim Allah mentioned that

00:03:55--> 00:04:12

we fasted Ramadan, and one of the greatest prices of Ramadan is that Allah azza wa jal wipes away our sins, that's the Hadith. So how do we thank Allah for this blessing of wiping away our sins? We thank him by fasting six days of short word.

00:04:13--> 00:04:52

When the Wii sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to pray at night, to the point where his heel would crack and it would bleed, and I shall have the Allahu Anhu she said to him, why do you pray so long? When Allah azza wa jal has already forgiven you for your sins, the previous and the fear of the previous sins and the future sins. So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a fella Hakuna. Abdun shockula Shall I not be a grateful servant? In other words, interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us that his Salette even though ALLAH has forgiven him, his salah is a means in how he is being grateful to Allah for the forgiveness he has earned. So when we found six days of Sure, well,

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

we fast and keep in your mind and be conscious that this is how you are thanking Allah for forgiving

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

all your sins after Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanahu wa ala to allow us to continue to be grateful to Allah azza wa jal for all our lives, we ask him SubhanaHu wa to Eilat to wipe away our sins, our shortcomings and to admit us into the highest levels of the paradise and normally with ethical either orally, or something Allahu wa Salam o Donica Elena Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine
