Hadiths on Fasting

Recommended Posts

^ That's a good reminder. We should always remember to say "Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem" before we put anything inside our mouth, and say "Alhamdullilah" and thank Allah after eating.

Hadith on fasting

Fasting is for Allah

"Every action of the son of Adam is given manifold reward, each good deed receiving then times its like, up to seven hundred times. Allah the Most High said, 'Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I will give recompense for it, he leaves off his desires and his food for Me.' for the fasting person there are two times of joy; a time when he breaks his fast and a time of joy when he meets his Lord, and the smell coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better with Allah than the smell of musk". [Al-Bukhari]

The Shield of fasting

"Fasting is a shield with which a servant protects himself from the Fire." [Ahmad, Saheeh]

The Prophet () said, "There is a door in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, 'Where are those who used to observe fasts?' They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the door will be closed and nobody will enter through it.
