What is Islam

Ideal personality of Muslim

Source : Islam Web / 18 Jul 2014

The ideal Muslim character is distinct and balanced. The Muslim is the embodiment of the teachings of the Quran and the ‘Sunnah’ (sayings, actions and the approvals of the Prophet Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention )). He follows the teachings of the Book of Allaah (i.e. Quran) and the example of the Prophet Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) in all affairs, relations, and situations – starting with his relationship with his Lord, his own self, his family and the people around him.

Question:

This year in our country, the fasting hours are will last for around 19 hours. How would Muslims fast such long hours?

Answer:

Muslims in countries where the fasting hours are 18 hours or more are to estimate the time for starting and breaking their fast. The principle of estimating fasting hours that extend beyond the normal hours is derived from actual circumstances. It is difficult for a person to fast continuously for 18 hours or more and experts have determined the inability of the human body to tolerate such extended periods of fasting which definitely poses harm. If this is so, it cannot be maintained that harm is the objective of Islamic law.

For most Muslims, with the name of Ramadan comes the impression of shopping and eating in their minds.

People celebrate the month of Ramadan as a festival. The month of fasting is held high as a month of feasting and shopping.

In today’s modern world where the real meaning of everything seems changing: love, humanity, kindness and sympathy, so has the essence of Ramadan completely changed in the eyes of Muslims.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Take Suhoor as there is a blessing in it." [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] In this Hadeeth (narration), there is an injunction to take Suhoor, which means eating and drinking directly before dawn in order to get ready to fast that day.

We have so casually adapted the western culture of unhealthy eating, moving further and further away from the Noble teachings of the Quraan and Sunnah of The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him).
