Fasting during Ramadan is one of the key obligations upon every male and female Muslim who has come of age. Fasting carries great benefits for your health, your mental state, removing attachments to the duniya, preparing for the hereafter, being a better person, improving your character, being an expiation for your sins… the list goes on.
STEP 1: MAKE INTENTION
Before the start of each fast, you must make intention to fast. This doesn’t need to be said out loud but should be firm in your mind. This can be done at any time during the night, even if it is just a moment before Fajr.
“There is no fast for the person who did not intend to fast from the night before.” [Abu Dawud]
STEP 2: TAKE SUHOOR
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Have suhoor, for in suhoor there is baraqah.” [Bukhari]
STEP 3: FAST DURING THE SPECIFIED TIMES
