1. SHAWWAL is the 10th Month of the Islamic calendar.

2. Monday 25th May is the 2nd SHAWWAL and you can start your 6 days of fasting from Monday. The issue of 3 days of eid only applies to Eidul adha not eidul fitri. Just make sure you observe 6 days whether consecutively or intermittently.

3. Observe fasting on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the month as your good deeds are being presented to Allah.

4. Observe 3 days of fasting on the 13th, 14th and 15th of every Islamic month. Those 3 days of shawwal fall on the 5th, 6th and 7th of June in shaa Allah. If you fast for 3 days in every month you will be rewarded with fasting for a whole year.

5. Procrastination is a thief of time. SHAWWAL ends on 21st or 22nd June. Start now.

6. Be conscious of dates in Islam.

Please, note, I am not an Islamic Scholar, I am only sharing my little knowledge and understanding with you!

SALATUL TASBIH (Prayer of Forgiveness)
The prophet (saw) said to Abbas there are ten things you will do that will wipe away your past, present, hidden, open, intentional, and non intentional  sins which is the (sallatul tasbihi )
Perform ablution
Pray four raka’at
In each raka’at read fatiha with preferred surah
Before you go for ruku’i, then you recite SUBAHANALLAHI, WALHAMDULLAHI, WALLAILLAHAILLAHU WALLAHU AKBAR (15) times before ruku’i, in ruku’i you recite (10) times, after ruku’i before sujjada you recite it (10) times, in sujjada recite (10) times, after you rise from sujjada you recite (10) times, before you go back to sujjada in the second sujjada you recite (10) times, then rise from sujjad as you sit and recite it (10) times before you stand up for the next raka’at. Then perform the same for 4 rakat
Before you realize-
You have carryout (75) tasbihi in every raka’at and that is how it will be in the remain raka’at which wil make it the sum  total of tasbihi carryout 300 in four raka’at.
WHEN TO PERFORM SALLATUL TASBIHI – Then he further says that you should at least try by all means to carry out this sallat every day,
if you are not opportune then every Friday, if you are not opportune then once in every months, if you are not opportune then once in every year, if you are not opportune then once in your life time.
BENEFIT OF SALATUL TASBIH – If you surely do it the way it is expected of, then if your sins will touch the sky or it will be as plenty as water in a sea of hamadah both the hidden and open,
Once, Allah (swt) will grant you forgiveness and reward you with janna. My beloved mothers, esteem fathers, handsome brothers, and beautiful sisters, this is a bonus, let rush and grab it before the end of Ramadan.
Do not leave it to pass, may Allah (swt)  give us the energy, time and power to carryout the ibadah and also shower his endless blessing and provide all the needs of the person that took his time to type shares with other people and any other person that will share with others duniya wa akira  🙏ameen ya rabbi🙏.
