Fast of Ramadan: One of the five pillars of Islam

Fasting is not unique to the Muslims. It has been practiced for centuries in connection with religious ceremonies by Christians, Jews, Confucianists, Hindus, Taoists, and Jains. God mentions this fact in the Qur'an:
“O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may develop God-consciousness.” (Qur'an 2:183)

 

Ramadan: The month of spiritual development

By : Abu Tariq Hijazi | 07 Aug 2012

Islam is a unique religion that provides the longest festival period to its followers. This festival is not marked by dance, drama, gambling, drinking and dining but it is for moral uplift and spiritual enhancement. The main feature of the month, Ramadan, is fasting from dawn to dusk, which is the third pillar of Islam. This helps to improve health in many ways and at the same time gives a real feeling of hunger suffered by millions of people around the world. When a billion people fast around the globe for one month, they save millions of tons on foodstuff annually for their hungry brothers. Such a great contribution is not made by any other community of the world.

The essence of fasting

By Khwaja Mohammad Zubair (Reflections) / 20 July 2012

Fasting in the Holy month of Ramadan is a devotional exercise, which purifies the soul and equips one for a sustained relationship with God where fear of Allah remains supreme. If performed with faith and sincerity, fasting, above all, helps us in becoming a good human being—no wonder all religions one way or other prescribe fasting.

When the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) came to Medina he found the Jews fasting the Day of `Ashura’, the tenth of Muharram. He asked them why they were fasting and they told him that it was an auspicious day: the day on which Allah saved Musa and his people and drowned Firaun and his people.

  Several of the world's great religions recommend a period of fasting or abstinence from certain foods. Of these, the Islamic fast during the Muslim month of Ramadan is strictly observed every year. Islam specifically outlines one full month of intermittent fasting. The experience of fasting is intended to teach Muslims self-discipline and self-restraint and remind them of the plight of the impoverished. Muslims observing the fast are required to abstain not only from eating and drinking, but also from consuming oral medications and intravenous nutritional fluids.

 

You are fasting, but someone eat at your elbow?!

"The angels bless the fasting person, when someone eats near him".

Walking down the street we sometimes see how certain people instead of keeping the fast, eat, drink or nibble sunflower seeds. Some become annoyed at this sight, others turn away, so as not to tempt themselves.

They try to show patience as they understand that God bestowed them the best, i.e. fasting. The refusal of the fasting testifies the weakness of the faith of this man.
