WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
ABOUT FASTING
1. when the month of
ramadan starts, the gates of paradise are opened, the gates of hell are closed and the devils are chained.. (Al-Bukhari 1898, Muslim 1079)
2. every muslim must make intention before fajr to fast(for an obligatory fast) Intention is not uttered..its determination in the mind and should not be done with audible wordings.. (Al Bukhari 1, Abu Dawood 2454)
3. fasting is NOT just
abstaining from eating and drinking, it is also refraining from vain speech and foul language..if one is verbally abused, he should say 'im fasting' (Muslim 1151)
4. taking the pre-dawn meal (Sehri) is a BLESSING..every Muslim is expected to take the meal EVEN if with a mouthful of water.. (Al Bukhari 1923, Ahmad 44)
5. its the sunnah to DELAY the sehri and HASTEN to break the fast as soon as the sun sets.. (Al Bukhari 1921, Muslim 1099)
6. if one hears the call to prayer WHILE still eating the Sehri, he should not stop eating, rather he should finish his food.. (Abu Dawud 2350)
7. whosoever doesn't give up speaking falsely and acting on lies and evil actions, Allaah doesn't care for his abstaining from eating and drinking.. (Al Bukhari 1903)
8. the messenger of Allah
used to break his fast
BEFORE magrib prayer with 3 fresh dates, if there were no fresh dates, he would eat 3 dry dates, if there were no dry dates, he would take 3 draughts of water.. (Abu Dawud 2349)
9. whoever provides a fasting person something
with which to break his fast, he will earn the same reward as the person without the person's reward being reduced.. (At-tirmidhi 807)
10. its PERMISSIBLE for a fasting person to bath or pour over his head to relief him of the hotness of the sun or of thirst.. (Abu dawud 2365)
11. if somebody eats or drinks FORGETFULLY while fasting, he should complete his fast, for what he has eaten or drunk been given to him by Allaah.. (Al Bukhari 1933, Muslim 1155)
12. zakaatul fitr is OBLIGATORY on every muslim, old & young, slave & free, male & female..One Sa'a (approx. 3kg) of food items should be given out before people go out for the eid
prayer.. (Al Bukhari 579/2, Muslim 2159)
13. the messenger of
Allaah never proceeded
(for prayer) on the day of
'eid ul fitr unless he had
eaten some odd number
of dates.. (Al Bukhari 73/2)
14. we should put on our
BEST garments and chant
Adhkaar TO & FRO the Eid
ground.. (Al Bukhari 88,89,102/2)
15. on the day of Eed, the
messenger of Allaah used
to return (after offering
the eid prayer) through a
way DIFFERENT from that
by which he went.. (Al
Bukhari 102/2)
16. whoever observes fast
in ramadan and also fasts
for six days in shawwal,
the reward of a whole
year fast is recorded for
him.. (Muslim 2614/6)
