Fasting


Are you participating in fast this year? Why? Why not?

Does the time of fast change every year?

What are the rules of fast if you are single?

What are the rules of fast if you are married?

After 8, can you eat what you wish?

What about in your morning meal (4-4:30 correct) are there limitations?

Can you still be involved in extra-curricular activities, i.e. sports?

Can you drink liquids through out the day?

Of course, this is a COMMANDMENT for Muslims. Not an option!!!

Yes

What are the rules of fast if you are single?

Same as if you are married.

What are the rules of fast if you are married?

Same as if, you single, one legged, or have purple hair. LOL!!

After 8, can you eat what you wish?

Fast is broken at SUNDOWN. Not at 8. Yes you can.

What about in your morning meal (4-4:30 correct) are there limitations?

The Morning meal (Sahur) is before the Sun rises. Not at 4-4:30. Yes and no. It's not wise to eat an IHOP breakfast at this time. Something light. I will get some examples of what the Prophet (saws) ate for Sahur. Inshallah

Can you still be involved in extra-curricular activities, i.e. sports?

Yes, but it's difficult. Very difficult.imo

Can you drink liquids through out the day?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

I hear there is one difference between being single and being married...being intimate. If you are single, you can not. If you are married you can after your fast is broken in the evening. Is that true?

You say fast is broken at sundown, so since it is a later setting in this time of year, then would it not be at, or around 8? Same for sun rise?

Oh, yes this is true. Single folks aint supposed to be sexing no time of the year. LOL!! And it's beneficial for single persons to fast as it decreases ones desire for sex. Married folks cannot be intimate during days of fasting. Once the Fast has been broken, intimacy is quite alright.

I guess it would be. But being PRECISE it's at Sundown not 8.
Same for sun rise?
Yes, but the PRECISE time is Before the Sun rises.

Ahhh...thank you kindly. It's being explained to me, but had just a few more questions for clarification.

I thought this would be helpful.


What does fasting mean and what are its
Allah s.w.t has stated in the Qur’an which means: “O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious).” (Al-Baqarah, 183)

In Islam, fasting is a religious ritual that trains both the body and soul. According to the Islamic Syari’ah Law, fasting is abstinence from food, drink, smoking and anything else that invalidates it from sunrise until sunset.

Spiritually, fasting trains us to be patient human beings who are willing to face hardship and difficulty in order to further improve our spiritual values.

With fasting, one can train and educate oneself to overcome these difficulties and help oneself to overcome physical obstacles and to also face any complications and crises in one’s life.

Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h has stated in a Hadith that we are an ummah that eats only when we are hungry and when we do eat, we do not eat until we are

Thanks....fasting does have many benefits, I had been reading about it when it was truly introduced to me by Queen Afua.

I was not aware, through my ignorance, that Muslims also had a time of fast, or should I say, the extent of their fast.

I have a Quran at home (got it when I lived in Florida, many moons ago) so I will look up that scripture. The one I have is an English teaching version, the man borrowed it to read during his fast (I think his is not in English) but when I get it back, I'll look it up.

Just wanted to chime in:

Also every Monday and Thursday, along with the Three white days of every month; the days after the end of Ramadhan festival, and other times as well.
