Fasting plays an important role in many major world religions and is a figure in all Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In Islam, Muslims, who can, must fast during the month of Ramadan, and it is also recommended to fast at other times of the year.
Ramadan fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. A key objective of increasing Taqwa (closeness to God) fasting, and to engender a sense of gratitude, self-discipline and self-improvement, at the individual and community level, which Muslims are encouraged to continue while throughout the year.
At the individual level, fasting encourages us to feel an affinity with the poor around the world, while for our own body, scientific studies have shown that fasting provides several health benefits (cell regeneration, increased immunity etc.) and forms of intermittent fasting have been incorporated into several diets.
Ramadan who fasts
Ramadan who doesn’t have to fast
Young children, the elderly, the sick, travelers, and nursing or menstruating women are examples of those who are exempt from fasting. If the exemption is temporary (pregnant woman, temporary illness) the Muslim must make up the non-fasting days after the end of Ramadhan.
If the impossibility is durable, the Muslim must give money (Zakat) for each day not fasted or feed a poor person for each day not observed.
Why ramadan is important
Ramadan is important because it is the 4th pillar of Islam. God has asked us to fast (for those who can) one month a year, from the second year of the hijir. Fasting brings us closer to the poor and helps us to focus on the spiritual side and put material life aside for a while, that’s why ramadan is celebrated.
Why ramadan is special
Ramadan is special because it is the month when God revealed the Quran to Prophet Momahed (peace be upon him). It’s the month of generosity. Fasting, only God can see it and reward for it. That’s why ramadan is important for muslim.
