Aslamualaikum, i have a query regarding fasting in the month of shawwal for 6 days as they hold great fazila'h in ahl-e-sunnah's mazhab, what i want to know is that is there any mention / hadith of shawwal fasting in shia mazhab as well ? 

JazakALLAH khair

Do not fast on 1st, 2nd or the 3rd of Shawwal

It seems it takes until fourth as well:

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بِإِسْنَادِهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ زِيَادِ بْنِ أَبِي الْحَلَّالِ قَالَ: قَالَ لَنَا أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ لَا صِيَامَ بَعْدَ الْأَضْحَى ثَلَاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ وَ لَا بَعْدَ الْفِطْرِ ثَلَاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ إِنَّهَا أَيَّامُ أَكْلٍ وَ شُرْبٍ.

Not permissible to fast on the 1st as it is Eid, makrooh on 2nd and 3rd as these are days of joy; eat on these days, attend invitations, invite guests etc

the hadith I quoted says 'three days after eid'

so totaly it's 4, not 3.

how can fasting on the second and the third of shawwal be makrooh when Rasulallah (S.A.W.W) never mentioned anything like that ? and if you are telling me that any Imam (a.s) said that i'll have to respectfully disagree and consider such riwayats weak because if Rasulallah didn't stop anyone from fasting on these days then it is sufficient of a proof that it is permissible and not makrooh. Fasting is prohibited on 5 days only which are eid ul fitr, eid ul ad-ha and ayyam-e-tashreeq and there is no mentioning of any Hadith of Rasullallah (S.A.W.W) about fasting on a particular day being makrooh.  Wallah-o-Aa'alm, jazakALLAH khair...
