Look at the magnanimous Lord. Look at how he multiplies our deeds. They're multiplied by 10. So by fasting the month of Ramadan, it is multiplied by 10. And it is equivalent to fasting 10 months and fasting the six days of Shawwal. They again multiply by 10. And that would mean that it is
equivalent to 60 days, two months. So 10 plus 212 months, you have fasted the entire year in terms of rewards. So let's strive to fast the six fast oshawott and along with that, let's try to observe other Suna fasts, such as on Mondays and Thursdays. Now we have the hadith of our mother eyeshadow de la Juan Jose she is reported to have said the prophets of Allah Wiley where he was alum was keen to fast on Mondays and Thursdays and this had his record in the book of Deuteronomy v Mammon si.
