Beginning 10th July 2013, Muslims all over the world will begin fasting because its Ramadhan. Fasting is compulsory and is one of the Pillars of Islam. One has to avoid not only consuming food, liquid or any form of substance from Dawn to sunset but also have to avoid activities that can invalidate the fast.
Fasting is the only pillar of Islam that show a Muslim’s true faith to Allah. This is because only Allah really see whether he/she fast. One can just pretend to be fasting in public but breaks in when in hiding. This is the difference from the other four pillars when others can see what he does.
I would like to wish all Muslims wherever you are, A Happy Ramadan and Happy Fasting for Allah.
