“The fast of Ramadan” is a work, through which we deal with all the questions relating to the fast of the holy month, compiled from various epistles, in particular those of Sheikhs 'Abdul-'Azîz Ibn Bâz, Al-Albânî, Ibn 'Uthaymîn and 'Abdur-Razzaq Ibn Badr.
Fasting allows one to achieve a certain degree of faith, as indicated in the following verse: [O you who believe! Fasting has been prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so you will attain piety. ] (S2. V183) and is one of the five pillars of Islam, as evidenced by these words of the Messenger of Allah reported by Ibn 'Umar: "Islam rests on five pillars: the attestation that it there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah, the performance of prayer, the payment of legal alms, the pilgrimage to the sacred House of Allah, and the fasting of the month of Ramadan. » It is therefore incumbent upon every Muslim to know the merits and benefits in order to be able to benefit from them, but above all the rules and modalities for putting them into practice according to the Book of Allah and the prophetic tradition.
With this in mind, we first defined Islamic fasting, then addressed its practical and legal aspect, and also dealt with its spiritual aspect, too often neglected in our time.
Ramadan should not be a spiritual parenthesis in the lives of believers. It must be a springboard towards a better life, more focused on altruism and good behavior on the one hand, and more focused on preparing the soul for future life on the other.
We hope that this work can allow the believer, preparing to enter the month of Ramadan, to accomplish this fast with full knowledge of the facts and, above all, to access its spiritual dimension.
