°• The Wisdom and Benefits behind Fasting  °•

Imaam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah


The objective behind fasting is to restrain the soul from (its) desires and to prevent it from those things, which are beloved to it. And its purpose is to control the soul’s strength, so that it can be prepared to attain what is found in it (the fast) from success and joy for the soul.

A: I advise all Muslims to fear Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He), to welcome this great month with sincere repentance from all sins, and to understand more about their Din (religion). One must learn the rulings on fasting and Night Prayer as the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) stated: ”If Allah wants to do good to a person, He grants him understanding of Islam.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) also says: ”When the month of Ramadan arrives, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of the (Hell) Fire are closed, and the devils are chained.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

English Translation:

Ramadhān has come, O people of understanding
So welcome it after its long absence.
A year from our life has passed while we were in a state of heedlessness
So pay attention for life is like the shadow of (a fast-moving) cloud.
And prepare yourselves for patience and hardship,
For the rewards of those who have patience are beyond measure.
Allāh rewards those who fast because for His sake they held easy that which is hard.
None shall enter the Gate of Rayyān except the one who fasts.
How excellent indeed that Gate is among the other Gates!


Arabic Text:


رمـضانُ أقـبلَ يا أُولي الألبابِ
فاستَـقْـبلوه بعدَ طولِ غيـابِ

عـامٌ مضى من عمْرِنا في غفْلةٍ
فَتَـنَبَّهـوا فالعمرُ ظـلُّ سَحابِ

وتَهـيّؤوا لِـتَصَـبُّرٍ ومـشـقَّةٍ
فأجـورُ من صَبَروا بغير حسابِ

اللهُ يَجزي الصائـميـنَ لأنـهم
مِنْ أَجلِـهِ سَخِـروا بكلِّ صعابِ

لا يَدخـلُ الـريَّـانَ إلا صائـمٌ

أَكْرِمْ بـبابِ الصْـومِ في الأبوابِ
