Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “From the fruits of eemaan in Qadr is the repelling of self-amazement when one attains what one wanted, because its attainment is a blessing from Allaah عزوجل owing to the means of [attaining] good and success which He decreed, so He thanks Allaah تعالى for that and leaves self-admiration.
Expelling worry and discontent when one misses out on what one wanted or when something disliked happens is also from its fruits, because that was going to happen due to the Qadaa of Allaah تعالى to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, so it was definitely going to happen, so he has patience regarding that and hopes for the reward.”

Uthaimeen: Finish Any Fasts You Have to Make Up for Ramadaan [Qadaa] Before Fasting the Six of Shawwaal

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The Sunnah is that a person fasts the six days of Shawwaal after finishing the make-up fasts [qadaa] of Ramadaan not before. So if he had some fasts to make up [due to having missed some in Ramadaan] but he fasted the six days of Shawwaal before the make-up fasts, he will not obtain their reward [i.e., the reward of the six of Shawwaal], because the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Whoever fasts Ramadaan …” and it is not correct to say about a person who has some fasts from Ramadaan still incumbent upon him that he has fasted Ramadaan, rather he has only fasted some of it.”
