“Mankind! Now there has come to you an exhortation from your Lord, a healing for the ailments of the hearts, and a guidance and mercy for those who believe.” (Chapter Yunus:57)

2. The Messenger of Allah –peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- always recited the following du’a:

((يَا مُقَلِّبَ اْلقُـلُوْبِ، ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِيْ عَلَى دِيْنِكَ))

“O Allah Who turns the heart, please strengthen my heart upon Your religion.” (Narrated by At-Tirmidzi: 2/20, Sheikh Al Albani said: ‘It is a sound hadith’)

And now we’re in the month of Syawwal, in which we are advised to fast for six days. It doesn’t have to be in consecutive, as it may be done separately, as long as it is still during the month of Syawwal. The Messenger of Allah –peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said, :

( مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ سِتًّا مِنْ شَوَّالٍ كَانَ كَصِيَامِ الدَّهْرِ )

“Whoever performs fast during (the month of) Ramadan, and then (fast) six (days) in the month of Syawwal after that, then it is as if he has performed fast the whole time (one year, -ed).” [1]
