Fast of Ramadan
Fast basically means "abstention," not only abstention from normally lawful and sensual activities during the hours of the fasting daytime, but it is also abstention from the illegitimate use of our mind, our tongue, our limps and our hearts. The Prophet (peace be upon him) is related to have said: "Whoever fasts but indulges in falsehood, let him know that his giving up of food and drink shall not benefit him to Allah.“

Whosoever says a supererogatory in this month, he/she will be given the blessings of obligatory prayer, and the one who performs his/her obligation once, he/she will be performing it like 70 such obligations. That month is the month of fortitude, and the reward of fortitude is paradise. That month is the month of beneficence in which the sustenance of the Mu‘min is augmented. Whosoever invites or offers a fasting person to break his/her fast, he/she will earn the means to forgiveness of sins, and to saving the neck from the hell. The blessings that a fasting person is entitled to in lieu of the fast, will be reduced in accordance with the reduced blessings that a fasting person will get for not being able to break the fast appropriately with something.“ On being asked if there is anyone, who is worthy enough to earn Allah's blessings by inviting a fasting person to break the fast,
