Allah Almighty created man as “NOBLEST OF CREATIONS (Ashraf ul makhlooqat)”. It means humans are superior from all creations. As Allah Almighty gives us the reward, He Almighty gives us duties as well. Those duties which other creations can not do. Allah Almighty sent his messengers to world in every era. Those messengers taught the man way of living. They taught man how to live with limits? Which things is good or bad? They also taught us the difference of Halal and haram. Furthermore they gave us concept of everything which might be important in our life. They taught us by their actions. All messengers told about the pillars of islam. Like praying, fasting, charity (zakat), pilgrimage (hajj) and faith. Faith that Allah is one and Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is the messenger/ prophet of Allah. Today we will discuss the importance of fasting in islam.
