Matters Related to Fasting
By Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid
Allah has blessed His slaves with certain seasons of goodness, in which hasanat (rewards for good deeds) are multiplied, sayyi'at (bad deeds) are forgiven, people's status is raised and the hearts of the believers turn to their Lord. Those who purify themselves attain success and those who corrupt themselves fail.
One of the greatest acts of worship is fasting, which Allah has made obligatory to his slaves.
As the status of this act of worship is so high, it is essential to learn the Ahkam (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 does not need to subject himself to hardship by depriving himself of it.
This book is a good summary of the rulings, etiquettes, and Sunnah of fasting.
