Benefits of Fasting

Swam is an Arabic language which means to keep fast. In details, it can be said that to starve from all types of foods and drinking is called swam or fasting. Fasting starts from the first day of the month of Ramadan from midnight to the sunset.  Ramadan is the month of having patience, saying prayers and deep thought of the almighty Allah, even to stop all sorts of conjugal life’s activities while keeping fast from midnight to the sunset. Fasting is in number fourth of the five bases of Islam. Fasting is the main spiritual and mental training for all the human beings. Through fasting we can understand the distress or pain of the hungry people. Fasting teaches us to have patience while we are in great trouble. Allah has promised us (in the holy Quran) to give the highest gift of fasting with his own hand. In the month of Ramadan people’ prayers are granted by Allah easily. If anyone does one good work in this month he will be given the goodness or virtue of seventy good works out of this month. The importance of this month is indescribable. If we follow the rules of the month of Ramadan, we will be able to lead the best lives up to death.
