Ibn Baaz on the Purpose of Fasting

August 2, 2012 § 3 Comments


Shaikh Ibn Baaz, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The purpose of fasting is to be obedient to Allaah, subhaanah, and to honour what He has forbidden, and to fight against the souls desires in obedience to its Patron [Mawlaa], and to make it accustomed to being patient regarding those things that Allaah has forbidden. The purpose [of fasting] is not just to leave food and drink … the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Whoever does not abandon falsehood in word and action, and ignorance then Allaah has no need for him to leave his food and drink.’”

Vol. 15, p. 15.
