On Fasting, from second 1/30 of the Quran

August 24th · No Comments · Quran, Ramadan

“O ye who believe. Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may learn self-restraint.” — 2:183, Yusuf Ali translation.

“Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur-an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment between right and wrong.” — 2:185, Yusuf Ali translation.

This speaks to some of the why Muslims fast in Ramadan: It is a prescription from our Maker, an ages-old practice of the servants of our Creator.
