Medical Aspects of Islamic Fasting

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

Dr. Shahid Athar


Muslims worldwide observe total fasting (no food or water) between dawn to sunset in the month of Ramadan. They do so not for losing weight or any medical benefit, but as it is ordained in Qur’an which says.

“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you, as it was prescribed for those before you (i.e. Jews, & Christians) so that you may (learn) self-restraint.”(Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:183)


According to Islamic Laws, children below the age of 12, sick patients, travelers, and women who are menstruating or nursing a baby are exempt from fasting. In addition to staying away from food or water for the whole day, they are asked to stay away from sex, smoking or misconduct during the period of fast. In addition, they are encouraged to do more acts of piety i.e. prayer, charity, or reading Qur’an during this month.

Brazil’s Growing Muslim Population Adapt For Ramadan

Sunday, June 28th, 2015


Brazil's Growing Muslim Population

Short days and pleasant weather ease the fast for Brazil’s growing Muslim population.

BRASILIA, Brazil – For Ibrahim Nashawaty, a refugee from Syria now living in Brazil, his first Ramadan away from home has been a strange and unsettling experience so far.

In some ways it is much harder here,” he tells AA, at the only mosque in Brazil’s capital Brasilia. “Everyone is eating and drinking on the streets all the time, because they are mainly Christians.

It is strange for me to see,” he adds.

But the 19-year-old, who fled the civil war raging in Syria six months ago with his three brothers and parents, admits that fasting in Brasilia has its benefits.

Seven Lights of Devotion in Ramadan

Part 1

Friday, 18 July 2014 00:00


There are a number of highly recommendable worshipful practices to be performed during the days of Ramadan, for those who seek closeness to their Lord and His Companionship.

Even if in the first part of the month we have missed out on one or more of these acts, we can still make an effort from now to reap their benefits in sha’ Allah.

1- Don’t Forget or Neglect the Pre-dawn Meal (Sahur)

It is recommended to partake of a light meal (Sahur)prior to commencing the fast. The fast begins at first light and ends at sunset (maghrib).

Aishah Schwartz: My First Ramadan

Monday, July 21st, 2014
By Aishah Schwartz

American Writer, Activist & Photojournalist
What a blessed evening it had turned out to be

I made my Shahadah in April of 2002, Al-hamdulillah, before that year’s Ramadan, which happened to be in November.

I had decided to take a personal holiday from work to mark the first day of my first Ramadan, and then, quite typically actually, I stayed awake the entire night working on an article that happened to be on the subject of marriage.

The time slipped by so quickly and before I knew it, dawn was approaching and I remembered to make my intention to fast and prepared a small suhoor consisting of oatmeal, toast, and coffee.

The Levels of Fasting (2/2)

The Levels of Fasting (2/2)

The Psychological Level

This level helps the fasting person psychologically to control evil thoughts and trains him or her, to some degree, how to overcome stinginess and greed. The Prophet was reported to have said:


“Allah has no need for the hunger and the thirst of the person who does not restrain himself from telling lies and acting on them even while observing the fast.” (Reported by Saheeh Al-Bukhari)


In this age of immediate gratification, when the things of the world are used to fulfill human needs and desires almost as soon as they have them the ability to delay gratification is an important skill. What is between immediate gratification and delayed gratification is patience. During the fast, the believers learn patience and the benefits of it.

The Levels of Fasting (1/2)

The Levels of Fasting (1/2)


Dr. Bilal Philips

Source: Why Do Muslims Fast?

Published On: 28/7/2013 A.D. – 20/9/1434 H.


The Ritual Level

This level of fasting requires that the basic rules for fasting be fulfilled, which are avoiding food, drink and sexual intercourse between dawn and sunset for 29 or 30 days each year. On this level, one is basically following the letter of the laws regarding fasting without particular consideration for the spirit of fasting. It is the entrance level which must be fulfilled for the fast to be Islamicly correct, but the other levels must be added for the fast to have any real impact on the fasting person. Fasting on this level alone will not benefit one spiritually, except from the perspective of submission to divine instructions, if one chooses to follow the ritual consciously and not merely according to tradition. Thus, by itself, the ritual level will not purify one of sin or atone for sin.

The Physical Level Fasting on the “physical” level causes the fasting person to experience the pangs of hunger and thirst when the prophetic (Sunnah) way of fasting is observed. Prophet Muhammad used to consume a very light meal before the dawn (suhoor) and moderate meal (iftaar) to break the fast at sunset, while scrupulously avoiding filling his stomach.

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

I praise Allah, Who has brought near to us the means of goodness and has opened the gate of repentance to His slaves, and I send blessings and peace upon the Messenger of Allah.

I have put together these few words for everyone who wants to change his situation and his actions so as to earn the pleasure of his Creator and achieve happiness in this world and in the Hereafter. I ask Allah to make it of benefit to those who read it and tell others about it, and I ask Allah to forgive sins both open and secret.

As Salaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barkaatuh

From ad-Dawal


Allah – the Most High – has favored us with countless blessings, the greatest of them being Islam itself. Within the religion of Islaam there are many favors; one is the month of Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. However, many of us overlook this bounty and are thus left with an incomplete depiction of Ramadan, often viewingit as a month to get oneself into shape!! Or rigidly describing it as a training program teaching self-restraint. Most importantly Ramadan is an act of Ebadah (worship), the fulfillment of Allah’s commandments and one of the great mercies of Allah to His believers for both this world and the next. lbnal-Qayyim [1] wrote in his famous book ‘Zaadul-Ma’aad 2/8587 :’From the Mercy of the Mighty and Most Merciful is that He prescribed for them fasting which will cut off the excesses of eating and drinking and empties the hearts of its desires which divert it on its journey to Allah -the Most High. He prescribed it in due proportion as will be appropriate and will benefit the servant withregard to this world and to the Hereafter; and it will not harm him, nor damagewhat is beneficial for him.”
