The manners of fasting Eating a pre-dawn meal: All Muslims agree that it is preferred to eat a Pre-dawn meal and that there is no sin upon one who does not do so . . “ Eat a pre-dawn meal, for there is blessings in it “ This is related by Bukhari and Muslim . The reason why it is a blessing is that it strengthens the fasting person, makes him more energetic, and makes the fast easier for him. What would fulfill the Sunnah of eating a Pre-dawn meal, it will be fulfilled by eating a small or large quantity of food, or even just by drinking a sip of water.
The messenger of Allah said: “!The pre-dawn meal is blessed, so do not neglect it even if you only take a sip of water. verily, Allah and the angels pray for those who have pre-dawn meals “ This is related by Ahmad.The time for the pre-dawn meal: The time for the pre-dawn meal is between the middle of the night and dawn. It is best considered to delay it ( that is ? as close to dawn as possible ). Zaidb ibn Thabit reported: we ate the pre -!dawn meal with the Messenger of Allah and then we got up for prayer. He was asked:!’ what was the amount of time between the two?” He responded ( ‘ The time it would take to recite ) fifty verses .!’ “ This is recorded by alb- Bukhari and Muslim.
Doubt concerning the time of fajr: if one is in doubt about whether or not the time of fajr has begun or not, he may continue to eat and drink until he is certain that it is fajr. He should not base his action on doubt or suspicion. Allah has made the signs for beginning the daily fast very clear and unambiguous. Allah enjoins ( upon the believers ) in the Quran: Eat and drink until the white thread of the dawn become distinct from the black thread ( of the night ). “
Hastings in breaking the fast:! it's preferred for the fasting person to hasten in breaking the fast when the sun has set. Sahl ibn Sad reported that the prophet said: “ The people will always be with the good as long as they hasten in breaking the fast. This is related by al - Bukhari and Muslims. Sulayman ibn Amr (reported that the Prophet said: If one of you is fasting, he should break his fast with dates. If dates are not available, then he should break his fast with water. If dates are not available then with water, water is purifying . “related by Tirmidhi, who calls it Hassan.
SUPPLICATION WHILE BREAKING THE FAST AND WHILE FASTING: It is confirmed that the prophet would say: The thirst has gone, the glands are wet and, Allah willing, the reward is confirmed. At-Trimmed recorded, with a good chain, that the prophet said :!: “Three people will not have their supplication rejected: a fasting person until he breaks his fast, just rulers, and an oppressed person .”
REFRAINING FROM PERFORMING ANY ACTION THAT DO NOT BENEFIT THE FASTING : Fasting is a type of worship that draws one closer to Allah. Allah has prescribed it to purify the soul and to train it in good deeds. The fasting Pearson must be on guard against any act that may cause him to lose the benefit of the fast .!Thus, his fast will increase his God-consciousness, and Allah says in the Qur’an: “O you who believe fasting is prescribed for you as it’s prescribed for those before you so perchance you may attain God-consciousness. Fasting is not just refraining from eating and drinking, but it is also refraining from everything else that Allah has forbidden. Abu Hurairah reported that the prophet said: that fasting is not (abstaining)from eating and drinking only, but also from vain speech and foul language. If one of you is being cursed or annoyed, he should say: “ I am fasting, I am fasting .” This is related by Ibn Khuzaimah , and al - Hakim. The latter said that it’s sahih according to Muslim’ a criterion. Abu Hurairah also reported that the prophet, upon who be peace, said “ Allah does not need the fast of one who does not abandon false speech or acting according to his false speech .”
USING THE TOOTH STICK ( BRUSH ): It is preferred for the fasting person to use a tooth stick or a brush. There is no difference if he uses it at the beginning or end of the day. The prophet will use his tooth stick ( brush ) while fasting. (At -Tirmidhi)
BEING GENEROUS AND STUDYING THE QUR’AN: Being generous and studying Qur’an is recommended at any time, but it is especially stressed during the month of Ramadan. Al -Bukhari recorded that in Abbas’s said: “ The prophet was the most generous of people, but he would be his most generous during Ramadan when he would meet (the angel ) Gabriel. He would meet with him every night and recite the Quran and. When Gabriel met him, he used to be more generous than the fast wind. “
STRIVING TO PERFORM AS MANY ACT OF WORSHIP AS POSSIBLE DURING LAST TEN DAYS OF RAMADAN : Al - Bukhari and Muslims recorded” That during the last ten days of Ramadan, the messenger Allah would wake his wives during the night and then remain apart from them ( that is being busy in act of worship) during last ten days of Ramadan more than he would any other time .” MAY ALLAH ACCEPT OUR FASTING. Ameen Indeed Allah Speaks The Truth.
