As good deeds build up one’s spirituality and bring them closer to Allah (SWT), it is understandable that fasting particularly weakens the ability to make a sin.

Relieves our worldly desires

Muslims get the courage by fasting to deny the carnal self and control of Satan over the body, they free themselves of the pressures of their vulgar self and body and begin to lead a life of respect and dignity.

Teaches us to be trustworthy

The worth of blessings

During Ramadan fasting plays the role of a teacher who guides us on how to economize. People who are hooked to buy whatever they want without thinking much learn to be economical and careful.

Praises the soul

Muslims undergo a period of training while observing the fast, as they do not eat when they feel hunger, do not drink, so it trains believers to master patience.

When not to fast

As diet or lifestyle change through fasting can bring risks as it is not suited to everyone. So, in Islam, it can also be temporarily excused for those with medical health conditions.


Fasting and praying are the main ways of showing worship to Allah the Almighty. As there are immense, visible physical benefits of fasting, the spiritual side of the activity often goes unnoticed.
