Article: Fasting – Ordinances, Wisdoms and Merits
[In case you’re wondering, “ordinance” means “an authoritative regulation, decree, law, or practice”. And yes, I used a dictionary.]
Here’s a short but very beneficial article by Dr. Saleh As-Saleh (rahimahullah): Fasting – Ordinances, Wisdoms and Merits.
I’d advise everyone to read it, especially the last few pages where he explains how the last four pillars are different kinds of tests. Very nice indeed.
