"Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days of Shawwal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime."
Narrated by Muslim, Abu Dawood, al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa'i and Ibn Maajah
All Praise is due to Allah the Creator and Sustainer of the universe Who fully knows the inner-most and hidden thoughts and motives in the hearts of all and Who created mankind so that they might know and purposefully Obey Him. Allah (SWT) said:
"I have only created Jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me"
Surah Al Dhariyat, 51:56
Behold! Allah took the covenant of the Prophets saying: "I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a Messenger, confirming what is with you; do you believe in him and render him help."
Allah said: "Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on your?" They said: "We agree."
He said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses."
If any turn back after this, they are perverted transgressors.
Do they seek for other than the Religion of Allah? while all creatures in the heavens and on earth have, willing or unwilling. bowed to His Will (accepted Islam), and to Him shall they all be brought back.
Say: "We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ismail; Isaac, Jacob, and the tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord: we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (In Islam)
If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of Him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).
How shall Allah guide those who reject faith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Apostle was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them? But Allah guides not a people unjust.
Surah Ali 'Imran, 3:81-86
