Fasting is Beloved to Allāh – Shaykh Fawzān

Shaykh Sālih al-Fawzān said,

Fasting is beloved to Allāh, due to this it is compulsory upon the fasting person to rectify his intention, making his fasting sincerely for Allāh. And he should intend to draw closer to Allāh, with his fasting, whilst being patient with any difficulties he finds in fasting, because fasting is an act of obedience to Allāh. Therefore, upon him is to purify his intention and to be patient.

He should then also know, that fasting isn’t merely refraining from food and drink; rather it is also refraining from everything Allāh has prohibited. He protects his hearing and tongue from that which is prohibited, such as backbiting; slandering and listening to music. And he protects his sight from looking at those things which are prohibited for him. These affairs are prohibited throughout the year, but even more so for the fasting person.

It could be the case that a fasting persons hunger is severe upon him, as is his thirst and tiredness, but he has no reward with Allāh. This is because of his tongue, speaking with that which is prohibited. His eyes looking at that which is prohibited. And his ears listening to that which is prohibited. This person in reality, he didn’t fast (in the complete sense), he merely left off food and drink.

Fasting is a tremendous act of worship, if someone fasts, then indeed he should stay far away from everything which is unsuitable and unbefitting.

A fasting person is similar to the one performing hajj or umrah, they have to leave off some affairs which are permissible. For example eating and drinking in their origin are permissible. However whilst fasting, he abstains from them.  And likewise he must stay away from those affairs which are impermissible, whilst fasting and at all other times, but the issue becomes even more severe whilst fasting.

Hence, it is obligatory upon the fasting person to take care of his fast from everything which will affect it negatively.

The Religion is Advice: Enjoin the Good & Forbid the Evil

A brief advice to the brothers and sisters, baarakAllaahu feekum:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Indeed in the hadith of tameem ad daarimee which is well known the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said:

‘Ad-Deen An-Naseehah, Ad-Deen An-Naseehah, Ad-Deen An-Naseehah’

Allah says:

Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islâm), enjoining Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.
Aali Imran verse 104.

And He says:

He ( Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) commands them for Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained); and forbids them from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds, and all that Islâm has forbidden); he allows them as lawful At-Taiyibât [(i.e. all good and lawful) as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.], and prohibits them as unlawful Al-Khabâ’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.)
Al A’raf verse 157

And in a Hadith the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said:

One of you does not truly believe until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself.
Bukhaari & Muslim

And he  sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said

‘Verily one of you does not truly believe until I become more beloved to him than his father, his son and all the people.’   
Bukhaari & Muslim

We would like to remind our honourable brothers and sisters of the great sin of image making, an issue that is so serious it is one of the Major Sins and as such it’s severity and grave nature has been related to us in many ahadith of the prophet sallaahu alaihi wa sallam.
