The importance of fasting is very important to a Muslim because it is a way of worshipping Allah. Muslims mainly fast in the month of Ramadan. This is a special month in the Islamic calender. This month is very special becasue the Holy Quran was revealed in this month to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Also in this month fasting is required to seek repentance to the creator, Allah. As Allah has written that in this month whoever fasts for the pleasure of seeking forgiveness or to be pardoned from all the sins he has made. Fasting is also important as it shows Ibadah which shows faith that you have in Allah and to not fast makes you a stronger Muslim and a Believer.
Fasting makes us muslims feel how poor people feel and thank god(allah)
for al what he had given us.
Fasting is another institution of Islam. Fasting has always been obligatory duty on the believers even before the advent of Holy Prophet SAW. All the previous nations were commanded to observe fasting. Holy Prophet SAW was sent to re- establish this institution in proper form and place.
Mere hunger and thirst do not constitute a fast. It includes abstention from all the worldly things including food, water, eatables and all the evil things and deeds. It is not mere of abstention from food and drink only but also from all kinds of fowl speech. It is not meant as a punishment or any kind of self- torture. Allah wishes to teach us self restraint and to make us righteous and a God- fearing person.
A Muslim does not eat, drink or smoke and undergoes a difficult and rigorous experience and discipline in the month of Ramadan because of his faith in Allah the Al Mighty. Fasting teaches man moral discipline through practical training during the month of Ramadan. He goes through the hard discipline day, day out and day in through out the Holy Month of Ramadan. In short, this has both moral and physical positive effects on the believer.
It is important because it is one of the pillars in islam and the quran was revealed in it;)
