 Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

~

Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) said regarding the wisdom in the legislation of fasting:

 

The wisdom in legislating fasting is clear, this being due to His saying The Most High:

{لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ}

((that you may attain taqwa [fearfulness and dutifulness])) 

(Al-Baqarah: 183)

°• The Wisdoms Behind The Legislation of Fasting  °•

Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmee

~

With regard to some of the wisdoms in fasting, Shaikh Ahmad bin Yahyaa An-Najmee (rahimahullaah) said:

 

Firstly: It is a spiritual exercise of the soul due to the withholding itself from its desires and that which is beloved to it.

Secondly: That the abandonment of food and drink as well as carnal desires during this time, being done out of worship of Allaah; The Mighty and Majestic accedes to a person an increase in his Eemaan along with strength in his being wary of the forbidden affairs and abstaining from non permissible desires.

°• The Wisdom Behind Fasting  °•

  Imaam Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee

الحكمة من الصيام للعلامة الألباني

(Below is the Arabic original text)

~

”O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may become people having Taqwaa.”

[Soorah al-Baqarah (2): 183]

So in this aayah, as will not be hidden to all those who are present, Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, informs the Ummah of Muhammad (saws), through this aayah, that He has made Fasting obligatory upon them just as He had made its like obligatory upon the nations before us. This is a matter that is well-known to all of the Muslims who read this aayah, and clearly understand its meaning. But what I wish to speak about is something else, a matter which very few of the general people notice – and this is the saying of Allaah, the Exalted and Most High, at the end of this Aayah:

”…So that you may become people having Taqwaa.”

Shaykh Abdul-`Aziz ibn `Abdullah ibn Baz

~

From `Abdul-`Aziz ibn `Abdullah ibn Baz to all Muslims, may Allah guide us all to benefit from all good and hasten to perform good deeds, Amen.

As-salamu `alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh

(May Allah’s Peace, Mercy, and Blessings be upon you).

O Muslims, you are in the great sacred month of Ramadan, the month of Sawm (Fast) and Qiyam-ul-Layl (optional Prayer at night). In this month, Allah opens the door of forgiveness and sets His Pious Servants free from the Hellfire. Ramadan is the month of giving Sadaqah (voluntary charity), a month in which the doors of Paradise are opened, rewards of deeds are multiplied, hardships are removed, supplications are answered, ranks are elevated, and sins are forgiven.

°• The Wisdom Behind Fasting  °•

  Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-’Uthaimeen

~

From the wisdom of fasting is that:

• It is an act of worship done for Allaah, in which the ‘abd (servant) draws closer to His Lord by abandoning the things that he loves and desires, such as food, drink and sexual intercourse. So because of this, the truthfulness of his Faith and the completeness of his servitude to Allaah become apparent, as well as his love for Allaah and his longing for what Allaah has prepared for him (of good).

°• 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. Through the fast, one curbs his hunger and thirst and is reminded of the condition of the hungry stomachs of needy people. (more…)
