Benefits Of Fasting In The Month Of Ramadan




Fasting in Ramadan should necessarily be commenced with the sight of the new moon and finished with the sight of the new moon if the weather is cloudy at the beginning or at the end, then complete thirty days.

This month comes with an unquantifiable number of rewards and benefits to those who fast in it. 

Below are the benefits of fasting in the Month of Ramadan from the Quran and authentic Hadiths.

Allaah (swt) says;

“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion between right and wrong…”

(Al-Qur’an 2:185)

“O you who believe! Observing fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious”

(Al-Qur’an 2: 183)


1. Fasting is shield



Narrated by Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, 'I am fasting." The Messenger of Allaah (Pbuh) added, (Allaah says about the fasting person), 'He has left his food, drink, and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times."

(Sahih Bukhari)




2. Fasting Is Meant For Allaah Alone.



Narrated by Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Allaah the Exalted and Majestic said: Every act of the son of Adam is for him, except fasting. It is (exclusively) meant for Me and I (alone) will reward it. When anyone of you is fasting on a day, he should neither indulge in obscene language nor raise the voice; or if anyone reviles him or tries to quarrel with him he should say: I am a person fasting. By Him, in Whose Hand is the life of Muhammad, the breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to Allaah on the Day of judgment than the fragrance of musk. The one who fasts has two (occasions) of joy, one when he breaks the fast he is glad with the breaking of (the fast) and one when he meets his Lord he is glad with his fast.

(Sahih Muslim)


3. Allaah Will Keep The Hell-fire Away From The Face Of A Fasting Person.



Narrated by Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever fasts one day in the cause of Allaah, Allaah will keep the Fire away from his face the distance of seventy autumns (years) for that day.”

(Sunan Ibn Majah)


4. The Gates Of The Heaven Are Opened And The Gates Hell-fire Are Closed



Narrated by Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah {peace and blessings be upon him} said: "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.

(Sahih al-Bukhari)



5. Gate Of A Fasting Person In Paradise



Narrated by Sahl bin Sa'd (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "In Paradise (Jannah) there is a gate which is called Ar-Raiyan through which only those who observe Saum (fasting) will enter on the Day of Resurrection. None else will enter through it. It will be called out, "Where are those who observe fasting?'' So they will stand up and proceed towards it. When the last of them will have entered, the gate will be closed and then no one will enter through that gate.''

[Sahih Muslim]
