A GUIDE TO THE NOURISHMENT OF THE SOUL
The real essence of fasting requires understanding and complete comprehension, which is why ‘The Essentials of Fasting’ is the perfect companion for those aspiring to recognise the true reality of the fast.
By fulfilling both the outward and inward conditions affiliated with fasting, readers can aspire towards a higher spiritual dimension during their worship. This endeavour can only be achieved through adhering to the rulings and conditions, coupled with the realisation of the inward beauty associated with fasting (and Ramadan).
This spectacular guide covers: the legal classification and intention of fasting; the principles related to establishing the beginning of every Islamic month, and in particular the crescent moon of Ramadan; the actions that do, and do not invalidate the fast; the expiation required for invalidating the fast of Ramadan; the actions that are, and are not disliked during fasting; the exemptions from fasting during Ramadan; the legal rulings of itikaf; the rulings of fasting for women; and the inner spirit of fasting, which includes theses on the virtue of fasting, the radiant month of Ramadan, and Prophetic recommendations during fasting.
