You can't! You should reopen the task to log time. This makes sense because one should log the time before the task is closed. It doesn't do it automatically because the actual time can be less than the original estimate.
In order to make sure people don't forget logging time before closing, you can may be add time tracking on to the transition screen.

1. Log the work before closing the issue. Log 6 hours and leave the remaining time as 0. Leaving the remaining time as 0 is key here and there is an option to do it when you log work.
2. Close the issue
