One of the virtues of Ramadan is that if you complete you're faster on 29 or 30 days, depending on the moon sighting, and then you follow it up with six days from the following month show well, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that it's as if you fasted continuously

00:00:21--> 00:00:43

the whole year. It's like you're constantly fast, which is interesting because the profit or these parts of Sudan, used to instruct people to not fast every single day, right?

00:02:08--> 00:02:26
