“Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those
before you, that you many learn piety and righteousness”
(Qur’an, al-Baqarah, 2:183)
Narrated Abu Huraira (r.a.): Allah’s Apostle said, “When the month of Ramadan starts,
the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.”
(Bukhari – 31:123)
Narrated Sahl: The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan,
and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection
and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, ‘Where are those
who used to observe fasts?’ They will get up, and none except them will enter
through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.”
(Bukhari – 31:120)
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the name of the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.
The month of Ramadan is when the first verses of the Quran were revealed.
Note: The entire Quran was revealed over a period of about 23 years,
starting in 610 CE and ending in 632 CE.
What are the rewards for fasting?
Narrated Abu Huraira (r.a.): Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah said, ‘All the deeds of
Adam’s sons (people) are for them, except fasting which is for Me, and I will give
the reward for it.’ Fasting is a shield or protection from the fire and from committing
sins. If one of you is fasting, he should avoid sexual relation with his wife and
quarreling, and if somebody should fight or quarrel with him, he should say,
‘I am fasting.’ By Him in Whose Hands my soul is’ The unpleasant smell coming
out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell
of musk. There are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of breaking
his fast, and the other at the time when he will meet his Lord; then he will be pleased
because of his fasting.”
(Bukhari – 31:128)
|How can someone make intention for fasting?
It is not necessary to express the Niyya verbally. The Niyya in the heart will suffice.
However, it is better to express the Niyya verbally also.
What if you mistakenly break your fast?
If one eats due to forgetfulness, a mistake, or coercion, then he does not have to make up the day later or perform any expiation.:
Narrated Abu Huraira (r.a.): The Prophet (a.s.w.) said, “If somebody eats or drinks forgetfully then he should complete his fast, for what he has eaten or drunk, has been given to him by Allah.” Narrated ‘Amir bin Rabi’a, “I saw the Prophet (a.s.w.) cleaning his teeth with Siwak while he was fasting so many times as I can’t count.”
And narrated Abu Huraira (r.a.), “The Prophet (a.s.w.) said, ‘But for my fear that it would be hard for my followers, I would have ordered them to clean their teeth with Siwak on every performance of ablution.” The same is narrated by Jabir and Zaid bin Khalid from the Prophet (a.s.w.) who did not differentiate between a fasting and a nonfasting person in this respect (using Siwak).
Aisha (r.a.) said, “The Prophet (a.s.w.) said, “It (i.e. Siwak) is a purification for the mouth and it is a way of seeking Allah’s pleasures.” Ata’ and Qatada said, “There is no harm in swallowing the resultant saliva.”(Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 31, Number 154)
How the Prophet (a.s.w.) acted in Ramadan?
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.): Allah’s Apostle (s.a.w.) was the most generous of all
the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan
when Gabriel (a.s.) met him. Gabriel (a.s.) used to meet him every night of Ramadan
to teach him the Qur’an. Allah’s Apostle (s.a.w.) was the most generous person,
even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste
to do charitable deeds). (Sahih Bukhari – Volume 1, Book 1, Number 5)
