This is the blessed month in the last decade of which the Holy Qur’an was revealed. Shab-e-Qadr falls in the last ten days of Ramadan. Taraweeh is recited in Ramadan. In this way, one gets an opportunity to read and listen to the entire Qur’an. Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlavi writes in his book Hujjat-ul-Balagha that fasting subdues animal emotions.
Fasting literally means “stopping at work” – stopping at a place – stopping to eat, drink, talk and walk.
In Islam, fasting became obligatory in Madinah in the month of Sha’ban 3 AH and the month of Ramadan was reserved for them. The Battle of Badr took place during the holy month of Ramadan. In Islam, fasting is obligatory on all sane adult men and women who are physically capable of it. Fasting is not obligatory on children, but for better training in Islam, children who have the strength to do so are fasted.
In the hadith, Ramadan is called “Shahar-e-Sabr” (month of patience) and “Shahar-ul-Mawt-e-Asat” (month of compassion). Fasting is actually a spiritual training. Allah Almighty has declared fasting as a source of spiritual, moral and physical training and has collective and social significance. Verse No. 23 of Surah Baqara says: “O Muslims!
When the month of Ramadan begins, the doors of mercy open. In Ramadan, the reward for goodness is increased from ten to seven hundred times if there is a spirit of humility in goodness. It is narrated from Hazrat Salman Farsi that on the last day of the month of Sha’ban, the Holy Prophet addressed us and said:
O people! A glorious and blessed month is overshadowing you. There is one night in this month which is better than a thousand months.
Allah has made the fast of this month obligatory and Qiyam-ul-Layl is Nafila in this month. It is a month of sympathy and grief. The believer’s sustenance increases during this month. Whoever breaks the fast of a fasting person, his sins are forgiven and he is saved from Hell. The first ten days of this month are for mercy, the second ten days for forgiveness and the third ten days for salvation from the fire of hell.
Whoever takes less work from his servant and servant in this month, Allah will forgive his sins and save him from the fire of Hell. ”
Here are some hadiths about the virtue of fasting.

In another place, the Holy Prophet (sws) said: Like a shield for defense on the battlefield. Fasting is like a shield for you in the fire, unless man breaks it with a lie and backbiting. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: How many are fasting who have only hunger from their fast and how many are awake at night who have nothing but waking up?

Elsewhere, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: If a person gives up even one day of Ramadaan without any (shar’i) excuse or illness, he will continue to fast until the Day of Resurrection. The Holy Prophet (sws) said: There are two happy occasions for the fasting person. The first time is that when he breaks the fast every evening, he has a special spiritual happiness and the second time is that when he meets his Lord, he will be very happy because of his fast.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The worshiper will be called to enter Paradise from the door of prayer.” He who is a Mujahid will be called from the chapter of Jihad. The one who is the owner of charity will be invited to enter Paradise from the chapter of charity. On the Day of Resurrection, only fasting people will enter Paradise through this door and no one else will be allowed to enter through this door.
The angels will call out, “Where are the fasting people?” When they enter Paradise during the day, this door will be closed. Then no one will be able to enter through this door. ”It is narrated from Hazrat Abu Saeed Al-Khudri that the Holy Prophet said:“ Whoever fasts for one day to please his Allah, then Allah Almighty The blessing of fasting removes his face from the fire for a period of seventy years.
