Welcome to E-DZ Booklet Project of 99 Reasons Why We Should Fast!

Posted Image

Whilst driving to work this morning, there was a good debate on the radio about the benefits of Fasting (Sawm). There were quite a few advantages named and therefore I want you guys to list what you think are the benefits/reasons of Fasting. Remember, fasting has physical as well as spiritual and social advantages!.

We need to try and name 99 reasons as this has never been done before and we will inshallah Publish it and have it sent to Islamic Websites around the world smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> ... Don't worry, we will credit you all somewhere at the back :D


So keep the number going. We will re-order them later. Name as many as you can. We will all learn from this.
Also try and use some fancy words too while you are at it. It'll make us look smart ;)

I will start it off

Benefits:
1. You give the digestive system a break.


Now over to you ;)

Great idea and remember to limit one benefit per post Insha'Allah , to give everyone the chance to be part in our Project Insha'Allah ;)

2)- When we fast , we feel what's it like not to be able to have something when you want it through experiencing hunger and thirst and thus help the poor.


What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......
