Fez - Imam Muslim narrates a Hadith via Ismael Ibn Jaafar, via Saad ibn Said ibn Qays, via Omar Ibn Thabet Ibn Alhareth Alkhazraji, via Abu Ayyub al-Ansari, that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “Whoever fasts Ramadan then follows that with six Days from Shawwal, it is like fasting perpetually.” The authenticity of this Hadith as well as its implementation are annually raised to be questioned at the end of Ramadan.
