ARTICLE: EXPLAINING SOME BENEFITS OF FASTING IN RAMADAN

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

Soon, every masjid and Islamic Centre will start giving “Ramadan Prep” talks. Soon, we’ll hear the same Quranic ayaat and ahadeeth that we hear every year. Soon, we’ll nod our heads and say “Yes, I know that. I heard that last year and the year before that and the year before that.”

One thing that I learnt from teaching the Hadeeth of Jibreel (the one where Jibreel comes in the form of a man and asks about Islam, Iman and Ihsan) is that hearing a hadeeth 100 times is not the same as UNDERSTANDING it.The unfortunate thing is that many people don’t understand this key difference.

Here’s another article by Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) on Some of the Benefits of Fasting in Ramadan. He discusses 4 ahadeeth and gives some points of benefit.

I wonder how many people after reading it will be able to say: “We knew all that already”?

And even if they say that, can they say: “We’ve applied all of this in our lives already”?
