Fasting (As-Siyām) is the fourth pillar of Islam, and Allāh obligated fasting on this Ummah just as he obligated it on the previous nations. He, the Most High, stated: “O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious.” Fasting was obligated upon the people in the second year after the Hijrah, and the Prophet fasted nine Ramadans before passing away.
You have before you a comprehensive guide that takes you from the days preceding Ramadan and sighting the moon in different lands all the way through to the last ten days, Laylatul-Qadr, ‘Eid day and the fasts of Sha’ban. The author explains the wisdom behind fasting and its regulations, the fiqh of the Night Prayer (Tarawih), Fidyah (compensation), Qadā (making-up what is missed), Zakāt Al-Fitr, the rulings pertaining to pregnant, breastfeeding and menstruating women, the traveller, the sick, the elderly and more. Each discussion is supported with proofs from the Qur’an and Sunnah.
