And so the tongue if you're fasting is not making your behavior better, if it is not increasing your spirituality, if it is not making you a better person, if it is not making you measure the words that you say and the things that you do. If all of that is not changing, then Allah subhana data has no need for you to leave your food and your drink. And so
