Pillar 4: Why Do Muslims Fast?
Fasting provides a humbling experience; it’s an act of worship that is done purely out of a Muslim’s trust, faith and submission to God. Throughout the month of Ramadan, we become more mindful of God’s presence, realizing that He would never prescribe on us anything harmful. Sh. Abdullah Oduro describes the beauty of fasting and the journey of attaining closeness to God.
