NAME : NOORAISHA BT ABDUL GUTHOOS IC NO : 960526-75-5044 CLASS : 4 SEJATI MODEL : 2 ACTIVITY : TAKING AND SHARING INFORMATION TOPIC : BENEFITS OF FASTING Assalamualaikum and a very good morning to my beloved teacher,Puan Azizah and to all my fellow friends.Today, I want to share about an interesting topic,The benefits of fasting. What is fasting? Fasting is an Islamic Law which is another unique moral and spiritual characteristic of Islam. Literally defined, fasting means to abstain "completely" from foods, drinks, intimate intercourse and smoking, before the break of the dawn till sunset, during the entire month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year. But if we restrict the meaning of the Islamic Fasting to this literal sense, we would be sadly mistaken. Fasting has many physical and spiritual benefits. It keeps away human being from animal desires. Fast is so effective in making a righteous man and society.Humans stomach and digestive system are the active members of body. Their main task, is to digest the eaten foods. In fasting, these members rest and fatness which is harmful for body, will be diminished.In Islamic narrations, its referred to the physical benefits of fast, Holy PROPHET (S) stated:Fast is for health. Also in many narrations, our Islamic Leaders stated: Human beings stomach likes the home of disease and avoidance of eating ,is its treatment. A person who fast, by doing these divines rules to live piety spirit in his heart. Since thirst and hunger and other fast limitations put out the flames of whimsy and instincts, then training of piety is easier in holy month of Ramadhan. By continuous practice during Ramadhan month, piety creates in humans heart and grows by passing of this program, he will be succeeded to remain pious. In the shadow of this purity which is originated from fast, the person who fasts not only avoids from eating and drinking but also holds his hands, feet, eyes, ears, mouth and all members of his body from sin and its holy aspect of fast.Hazrat-e Ali (Pbuh) states: when heart avoids of thinking to sin, its higher than physical fast which avoids of eating and drinking. Fasting build a man to be patience.It is interesting that you know the physical fast creates spiritual revolution in the persons who fast. It has been proved that wickednesses and

corruptions are diminished in Ramadhan month. Patience is a character which is emphasized by Islamic ethics. Quran and Islamic leaders have called fast as patience. Our Islamic leaders have called Ramadhan as charity month. Stimulating of mans sympathizing sense to the poor is one of conspicuous results of Ramadhan. Persons who live comfortably and don't feel hunger and thirst, may forget the poors but fast is a means by which they can member and help them.It has been recommended to pay alms in Ramadhan month. In this month rich man closes to poor man and society learns assistance. Charity means to share the provision with each other and for this reason Ramadhan has been called as charity month.Someone asked Imam Hassan Askari(Pbuh): Why is fast obligatory? he answered: For rich man understands hunger and helps the poor. Fasting teaches us the punctuality.Punctuality and discipline are the manifestations of human beings civilization and one of the most important factors in success and progress. May be some people think that these particulars are specialized for westerns life and their civilization, but discipline and punctuality are Islams instructions. Fast Ramadhan begins in the holy Ramadhan month by observing new moon. According to this problem that Ramadhan is in Arabic month, then it will happen in all seasons, sometimes in hot days of summer or in cold days of winter. A person who fast,should begins his fast before sun -rise and break it after sunset. This is a lesson which makes Muslim to be regular in his life.Lastly,Ramadan is nearing us.So,come lets enjoy fasting! Thank you.
