Complete Guide (Fasting) for Muslim in Ramadan
Abu Saeed Khudri RA narrates that Rasulullah SAW said : "The Doors of the Heavens are opened up on the first night of Ramadhan. Not a single door (among the doors of Heaven) is then closed until the last night of Ramadhan."
Before proceeding with the masa'il (rules) related to Ramadhan, it is best to narrate some of the fadha'il (excellences and virtues) of Ramadhan. Knowledge of the virtues will develop the understanding of the value and importance of this most blessed month, creating enthusiasm and eagerness, which in turn will result, Insha-Allah, in proper fulfillment of the laws, etiquette and demands of Ramadhan. This book will guide us to know and learn about fasting in Ramadan.
In the month of Ramadhan, Allah SWT blesses us with all the means to enable the force of good to supercede the evil forces. One must therefore value every moment of this month to spiritually elevate oneself.
Fasting helps us judge our strength in controlling our lust, greed and passion. It teaches us self-discipline so that we gain control over the factors which Satan uses as his tools against Man. Fasting is a weapon and just as any other weapon is useless, unless the user knows how to use it, same applies to Fasting.
