Alhamdulillah. Time flies. 🙂

Ramadan is here again. We, Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan.

Fasting in the month of Ramadan is the 4th pillar of Islam.

 

The 5 Pillars of Islam are:
1) Shahadah, declaration of faith and trust that professes that there is only one God (Allah) and that Prophet Muhammad is God’s messenger.

2) Salat which is the Islamic prayer.
Salat consists of five daily prayers; the names are according to the prayer times: Fajr (dawn), Dhuhr (noon), Asar (afternoon), Maghrib (evening), and Isha’ (night).

3) Paying Zakat, purifying your wealth and soul by giving a portion of your wealth to those in need.

4) Fasting in the month of Ramadhan

5) Hajj, which is pilmigrage to Mecca. It occurs during the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah.
Every able-bodied Muslim is obliged to make the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their life.

Today, I am going to share with you on the 4th pillar of Islam, which is fasting in the month of Ramadan.

Ramadan  is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H).

We believe Quran is God’s words, and Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is the last messenger of God.

During the blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from all food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours (such as smoking or sex).

Daily fasts begin at dawn and end with sunset.

Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking; it is a time to purify our soul, refocus our attention on Allah S.W.T., and practice self-discipline and sacrifice.

At night, we, Muslims will go to the mosque to perform our special prayers known as Taraweeh.

This is a month when a Muslim should try to AVOID practices like:

smoking,
swearing,
treating people with disrespect
being mean
harming or hurting living things
being cruel
un-courteous and selfish.

Fasting has also many special benefits.

Among these, the most important is that it is a means of learning self-control.

Ramadan is also a time of intensive worship, reading of the Quran, giving charity, purifying one’s behavior, and doing good deeds.

For Muslims, Ramadan is an opportunity to gain by giving up, to prosper by going without and to grow stronger by enduring weakness.

As a secondary goal, fasting is a way of experiencing hunger and developing sympathy for the less fortunate, and learning to thankfulness and appreciation for all of God’s bounties.

Fasting is also beneficial to health and provides a break in the cycle of rigid habits or overindulgence.

So…To All Muslims Brothers and Sisters.

Happy Fasting! 🙂
