FASTING FOR THE GREATEST REWARD

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

In the Chapter Al-Baqarah of the Quran, there are five verses that deal with fasting in the month of Ramadan (2:183-187). In the book of Hadith, Mishkat al-Masabih, seventy-three sayings of the Prophet have been quoted with regard to fasting. Detailed provisions regarding Ramadan can be found in the books of fiqh.

THE MONTH OF FASTING AND PRAYER

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

Ramadan, the month of fasting, is a blessed spiritual period for believers, for it is during this month that they do their utmost to awaken and enhance their spirituality. The aim of fasting during Ramadan is to diminish a person's dependence on material things, so that he may elevate himself to a higher plane of devout living. Abiding by the guidelines of fasting raises believers to a state of humility, truth and honesty.
