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.

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.
