Fasting is one of the pillars of Islam correct?

00:00:04 --> 00:00:24

Now, but is there anything which differentiates the acts of worship, fasting, the pillar from the other four pillars, perhaps, as I mentioned earlier that there are five pillars of Islam, and all of them are important. But the differentiation between Psalm

00:00:25 --> 00:00:29

fasting as compared to other pillars is that

00:00:30 --> 00:00:36

the other Pillars of Islam, whether it be Salah, whether it be Zakat, whether it be how much

00:00:38 --> 00:00:42

it can be done by a person to show to the others for you, to be seen, or to be heard.

00:00:43 --> 00:01:16

Maybe I want to show myself when I'm already past person, so I'm offering Salah to show to the people, you know, I'm going to make a show of it. Can we possible? can we possibly give childhoods that people will say I'm a charitable person for sure, but fasting cannot be done for you cannot be done to show other people why a person can easily fast and when no one is watching, he can afford he can every little person who truly fast and abstains from things that break the past. He's doing it only for Allah and wonders. That is the difference between

00:01:17 --> 00:01:43

some and that a bit of Islam and our beloved prophet muscles himself, as mentioned in, say Buhari, more, number three, in the book of fasting, Hadith number 19 104. A Beloved Prophet Muslim Muslim said, Allah says that all the deeds done by the sons of Adam, therefore themselves only, he doesn't find myself. But fasting is for me,

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

and I will reward him.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

And fasting is a shield.

00:01:50 --> 00:01:56

Opposing fasting, he abstains from obscene things.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

He abstains from lying,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:08

and abstain from yelling. And if a person gets angry at him, and abusing him, he says, I'm fasting

00:02:10 --> 00:02:10

and fasting.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:21

And He further goes on, and says, that, I swear by Allah subhanaw taala, in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad,

00:02:22 --> 00:02:30

that the breadth of a person who fast is sweeter to Allah than the scent of Musk,

00:02:31 --> 00:02:32

and a person who first

00:02:34 --> 00:02:34


00:02:35 --> 00:02:52

feels happy twice, once while making the past, and once when he meets his creator, his Lord 2013. There are various aspects mentioned first is that fasting don't interfere last month and no one is it's not for you. Secondly, fasting is a shield. It's a protection.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:17

It keeps you away from wrong things, from obscenity, from vulgarity. And if someone is angry, it feels that you have to come in around 3am fasting and fasting because monetarism says it's a body worn number three, added number 238, that the Satan runs in the circulatory system of the human being like the blood. So when we fast,

00:03:18 --> 00:03:40

we feel hungry. When we're hungry, you know, the energy level goes down. And the thing that's required for doing things away from last minute Allah so the quality goes up, because when we eat food, it goes into the blood. When we restrict food, the restriction of the pathway of the Satan is day so that that even when we fast our taco level increases
