Fasting is the divine workshop for self construction

SHAFAQNA – Allah (SWT) has designated fasting as a great divine workshop for self construction, to fight evil desires and attain piety. The Prophet of Islam said: Fasting is a shield against the fire (of hell); meaning with true fasting a human can be immune from the hell fire [1]. True and proper fasting as described by Allah (SWT), the Prophet (PBUH) and all Imams, is a fight against all those egos and desires that lead a human astray and in fact true fasting is the great Jihad.
