The Virtues of Fasting


The virtues of fasting are great indeed, and one of the things reported in the Sahih hadith is that Allah has chosen fasting for Himself, and He will reward it and multiply the reward without measure, as He says : Except for fasting which is only for My sake, and I will reward him for it.

Fasting has no equal , and the du'a of the fasting person will not be refused

The fasting person has two moments of joy: one when he breaks his fast and one when he meets his Lord and rejoices over his fasting .

Fasting will intercede for a person on the Day of Judgement, and will say, O Lord, I prevented him from his food and physical desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.

The smell that comes from the mouth of a fasting person is better with Allah than the scent of musk.

Fasting is a protection and a strong fortress that keeps a person safe from the Fire.

Whoever fasts one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will remove his face seventy years distance from the Fire.

Whoever fasts one day seeking the pleasure of Allah, if that is the last day of his life, he will enter Paradise. In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through those who fast will enter, and no one will enter it except them; when they have entered it will be locked, and no-one else will enter through it.

Ramadan is a pillar of Islam; the Qur'an was revealed in this month, and in it there is a night that is better than a thousand months. When Ramadan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are put in chains.

Fasting Ramadan is equivalent to fasting ten months.

Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and with the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.

At the breaking of every fast, Allah will choose people to free from Hellfire.
