Today, those of us who are Muslims started fasting our Ramadhan Fasts as commanded upon us by Allah the Almighty!
Ramadhan is the month during which the Glorious Quran was revealed to Allah’s Final Messenger, the Blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam by way of direct conveying of Allah’s Divine Revelations by Archangel Sayyidina Jibreel Alaihis Salam.
The commandment from Allah for Muslims to fast is revealed in the 183rd verse of the Surah Al Baqarah in the Holy Quran.
“O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint.”
Detailed information regarding the Commandments to Fast can be found here.
Will be updating this post after this. Stay tuned.
