Fasting Tips for New Muslims
Upon becoming Muslim, one must fast the month Ramadan, the second act of worship that Allah enjoins upon us, every year. One must abstain from anything that breaks the fast; eaing, drinking and sexual intercourse, from the time of fajr (dawn) until maghrib (sunset) as an act of obedience to Allah.
Like the Prayer, this act of worship has been part of the Shari`ahs given by all the Prophets.
Their followers fasted as we do. Allah (Exalted be He) says: O you who believe! Fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become from the pious. (Al-Baqarah 2:183)
However, the rules, the number of days, and the periods prescribed for fasting have varied from one Shari`ah to another. Today, although fasting remains a part of most religions in some form or other, people have often changed its original form by accretions of their own. In this e-book Fasting Tips for New Muslims , we will try to help you to make this Ramadan your best Ramadan ever.
