The month of abstinence
With Ramadan being round the corner (July 9), we bringto you some significant facts about the holy month, whichsymbolises a lot more than fasting and feasting
he month of Ramadan is about todawn upon us yet again. It is the9th month of the year accordingto Islamic calendar in which fasting is prescribed for Muslims. It is a month whichis resembled as the spiritual spring seasonfor the believers.It is a distinctive feature of Islamicteachings that every ordinance is prescribedwith its philosophy and ultimate objective.The Arabic word ‘saum’ used in the senseof fasting literally means ‘to abstain’ andMuslims abstain from taking any foodor drink from dawn to dusk and refrainfrom intimacy and indulgence in any foul pursuits. The Holy Qur’an mentions that it is prescribed for you so that you may become‘Muttaqi’ (generally means ‘righteous’). TheArabic word used here literally means to beguarded and protected. The Holy Prophetof Islam (on whom be peace and blessingsof Allah) also described fasting as a shieldto purport to the reality of fasting that itshould shield a believer against every harm,Satanic onslaughts and sinful insinuations.To abstain from any food or drink during theday is not the real purpose of fasting. Thereal purpose lies in winning Almighty God’s
 pleasure by sacricing one’s basic physical
needs like food and drink and thus coming inHis protection.Fasting, as the Holy Qur’an states [2:184],is a form of worship found universally inthe world religions. Although, among thereligions, there are vast differences regardingthe mode of fasting and the conditionsapplied to it, the central idea of fasting is present everywhere. Fasting in Islam is ahighly developed institution. As mentionedabove, there is one full month, Ramadan, inevery year in which fasting is prescribed for Muslims all over the world.
