An-Nawawi on Safeguarding the Fast

Whoever does not give up false speech and evil deeds while fasting, then Allah is not in need of his leaving food and drink.

By Abu Amina Elias / 19 Jul 2013 

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

An-Nawawi records in his book Riyad us-Saliheen:

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

إِذَاأَصْبَحَأَحَدُكُمْيَوْمًاصَائِمًافَلَايَرْفُثْوَلَايَجْهَلْفَإِنْامْرُؤٌشَاتَمَهُأَوْقَاتَلَهُفَلْيَقُلْإِنِّيصَائِمٌإِنِّيصَائِمٌ

When one of you awakes in the morning for fasting, then he should not use obscene language or behave ignorantly. If anyone slanders him or tries to argue with him, he should say twice: Indeed, I am fasting.

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

مَنْلَمْيَدَعْقَوْلَالزُّورِوَالْعَمَلَبِهِفَلَيْسَلِلَّهِحَاجَةٌفِيأَنْيَدَعَطَعَامَهُوَشَرَابَهُ

Whoever does not give up false speech and evil deeds while fasting, then Allah is not in need of his leaving food and drink.

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

مَنْنَسِيَوَهُوَصَائِمٌفَأَكَلَأَوْشَرِبَفَلْيُتِمَّصَوْمَهُفَإِنَّمَاأَطْعَمَهُاللَّهُوَسَقَاهُ

Whoever forgets while he is fasting and he eats or drinks, then let him complete his fast, for verily, Allah has fed him and gave him drink.

Laqit ibn Sabirah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

أَسْبِغْالْوُضُوءَوَخَلِّلْبَيْنَالْأَصَابِعِوَبَالِغْفِيالِاسْتِنْشَاقِإِلَّاأَنْتَكُونَصَائِمًا

Perform ablution well. Clean the base of your fingers and sniff water deep into your nose unless you are fasting.

Aisha and Umm Salamah, may Allah be pleased with them, said:

أَنَّرَسُولَاللَّهِصَلَّىاللَّهُعَلَيْهِوَسَلَّمَكَانَيُدْرِكُهُالْفَجْرُوَهُوَجُنُبٌمِنْأَهْلِهِثُمَّيَغْتَسِلُوَيَصُومُ

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, would wake up at dawn while in a state of impurity, then he would perform a ritual bath and observe fasting.
