about Islam

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.
