The Benefits of the Month of Ramadan

Fasting in Islam is abstaining from eating and drinking. In the terminology of Islamic law. It means to abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours. The observance of fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan is the fourth of the Five Pillars of Islam, but is not confined to that month.

 

Since the initial days of Islam, this great religion concentrated on both the spiritual and physical qualities of its followers. Islamic Law clearly promotes and encourages our societies to constantly work towards improving its strength and solidarity through unity.

One of the concepts that was introduced in Islam was that of fasting. The Prophet (Peace be upon him and his household) had asked Allah what the gift of fasting was; and Allah replied:

“Fasting leads to wisdom, and wisdom enables you to understand My signs and ways; that will raise you to the stage of certitude. And when a person has reached the level of certitude, he or she cares not whether the days pass in plenty or scarcity”.

The month of Ramadan was chosen to be the month of fasting, worship, honesty, prayer and all of the good deeds. There are a plethora of benefits associated with this honored month.
