In the Name of Allah (swt), the Most Beneficient, the Most Merciful

All Praise be to Allah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own selves and from our evil deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides cannot be misled, and whomsoever He leaves astray cannot be guided. I bear witness that there is no god except Allah alone, with no partner or associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Allah has blessed His slaves with certain seasons of goodness, in which Hasanat (rewards for good deeds) are multiplied, Sayi’at (bad deeds) are forgiven, people’s status is raised, the hearts of the believers turn to their Master, those who purify themselves attain success and those who corrupt themselves fail. Allah has created His slaves to worship Him.

“And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except that they should worship Me (Alone).”
[Al Qur’an – Surah al-Dhaariyaat (051:056)]

A day in the life of an Imam (Anwar al Awlaki) during Ramadaan:

1. One of the greatest acts of worship is fasting, which Allah has made obligatory on His slaves.

“O you who believe! fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil).”
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah (002:183)]

2. Allah encourages His slaves to fast.

“…and that you fast is better for you if you know…”
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah (002:183-184)]

3. He guides them to give thanks to Him for having made fasting obligatory on them.

“…and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful…”
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah (002:185)]

4. He has made fasting dear to them, and has made it easy so that people do not find it too hard to give up their habits and what they are used to.

“…for a certain number of days…”
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah (002:184)]

5. He has mercy on them and keeps them away from difficulties and harm.

“…but whoever among you is sick or on a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days…”
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah (002:184)]

No wonder then, that in this month the hearts of the believers turns to their Most Merciful Lord, fearing their Lord above them, and hoping to attain His reward and the great victory (Paradise).

As the status of this act of worship is so high, it is essential to learn the ahkaam (rulings) that have to do with the month of fasting so that the Muslim will know what is obligatory, in order to do it, what is Haram, in order to avoid it, and what is permissible, so that he need not subject himself to hardship by depriving himself of it. This book is a summary of the rulings, etiquette and Sunnah of fasting. May Allah make it of benefit to myself and my Muslim brothers. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

(The compilations of topics concerning rulings are primarily the work of Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid with additions from the lectures of Sheikh Yasir Qadhi. A few other topics have been taken from www.islam4uk.com. Other articles were produced by various UMW admins. Edited by UMW admin and the editing are primarily for the sake of better presentation and simplicity)
