The History and Major Islamic Events of Shawwal

Salam o Alaikum!


The month of Shawwal holds great significance in the Islamic calendar for several reasons.


To start with, Eid al-Fitr takes place on the 1st of Shawwal. It is the feast of the breaking of the fast, celebrated by Muslims worldwide after fasting the whole month of Ramadan.


Moreover, the battle of Uhud began on the 7th of Shawwal, which is the second most important war to occur in Islamic history.


Likewise, the Battle of Hunain took place in Shawwal. This battle was personally led by the Messenger of Allah – Muhammad SAW, and it was fought on the route from Mecca to Taif.


Aisha (RA) also married the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in Shawwal, making it one of the best Islamic months for marriage.


Furthermore, Imam Bukhari was born on the 13th of Shawwal. He was the Persian Islamic scholar to compile the Hadith collection known as Sahih al-Bukhari. It is one of the most authentic Hadith collections to date.


Also, 25th Shawwal is the day for the martyrdom of Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (RA).


Consequently, the significance of this month can be learned from the fact that fasting for six days in Shawwal is equal to earning the rewards of fasting every day for the whole year.


May this month brings us immense peace and happiness. Ameen.
