When to keep six fasts after Eid?


Dear Islamic brothers! Sadr-ush-Shari’ah Badr-us-Sarīqah Shaykh ‘Allamah Maulana Mufti Muhammad Amjad ‘Ali A’zami عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـقَـوِی has stated in a footnote to Bahar-e-Shari’at:
‘It is better to have these six fasts separately (on alternate days or after every two/three days), but there is still no harm if somebody fasts consecutively after Eid-ul-Fitr.’
(Baĥār-e-Sharī’at, pp. 140, part 5)
