Article: A Concise Study Guide to Fasting
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
For some reason, many of us forget the rules and regulation related to fasting (although we study it every year).
So, as usual, here’s something for this year: A Concise Study Guide to Fasting During the Month of Ramadan
It’s a translation of the chapter on fasting from the book “Akhsarul Mukhtasaraat” (The Most Concise Summary) by Imam Ibn Al-Balban (rahimahullah) who died…..350 years ago.
The book, from where this chapter comes from, is one of the most famous books of Hanbali* fiqh (jurisprudence). In fact, it’s one of the basic books that students are advised to start with.
[*For those who might be unaware: This is one of the four schools of fiqh, the others being Hanafi, Shafi and Maliki.]
The translator, may Allah reward him, has added some parts of Shaikh Saleh Al-Fawzan’s explanation of this book.
I’d advise everyone to read through it.
Note: If you want something more detailed or if you prefer audio, you can find plenty of resources in the relevant categories in the top navigation bar (or you can just use the search bar. That’s what I do – and I wrote all the posts!)
