Shawwal means ‘lift or carry.’ Shawwal is the tenth month on the Lunar Islamic calendar. The first day of Shawwal is Eid Al-Fitr. There are also six days of fasting during Shawwal which, together with the Ramadan fasts, are equivalent to fasting “perpetually.”

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “He who observed the fast of Ramadan and then followed it with six (fasts) of Shawwal. It would be as if he fasted perpetually.” (Muslim)
