Why do we fast? When any one asked us Why do you do this something in a stand that Allah want us to do? The answer is Allah said so

00:00:11--> 00:00:34

Allah said so and then he will show me the reasons stay away from this argument. Why? Why did he do that? Why did you want me to do that? That's lack of a ticket with Allah. I did it because the one who gave me everything, the one who created me, the one who still gives me the ones who is very merciful with me said so

00:00:35--> 00:01:21

basically I fast Ramadan because I want to obey Him. And number two, it is a mean to purify the soul test gear to nerves, because the more I am in control, I control my nerves and my desires it will become much more purified not to everything my nerves want I'll give it and that's what happens in Ramadan in this 16 or 18 hours. I'm hungry, my enough's my soul saying, Please, I need to eat and you say no, it's there for mobile. And I'm thirsty, I need to drink. No, it's the day of Ramadan. Now more I say no to myself, the stronger I am, the more purified I am. So when the temptation comes in to this obey Allah later, I am stronger to say no.

00:01:23--> 00:01:47

It's mean away or I mean, I mean to attain taqwa, what is the what Allah conscious and this is a beautiful concept. It teaches me fasting teaches me when I am alone, outside that I'm alone. To remember that Allah is watching me and he sees what I am doing. And he is hearing what I am saying. And that's the

00:01:48--> 00:02:41

soul fast fasting get me there. Because what is the reason I am not eating or drinking when I am alone, because I know he sees me and I know he watched me. And for 30 days if I can do this, I am short like you're behind me when I leave. Ramadan I got to this. I got to this feeling that Allah is watching me. And fasting in general Teach me less attachment. If I have it Alhamdulillah if I don't have it Alhamdulillah I stay 16 hours with no food and drink. I can stay with less this or less that. And of course the last thing which we all say fasting hunger actually reminds me we when you when I'm sure everybody had this experience when you went to this supermarket and you'll find the

00:02:41--> 00:03:13

shelves are empty. And then you really need it for example that thing and that thing is not available. What was the feeling. Now look at the feeling if it was available, but I cannot have it. I can't buy it. I can't I don't have the means. It teaches me It teaches me less attached and makes me feel with the other people who for us hamdulillah everything is available and we can buy a lot of people it's either not available or it is available but they cannot have it
