Importance and Benefits of the Holy Month of Ramadan

spiritual benefits of fasting in islam

The month of Ramadan is one of the most blessed and rewarding months of the Islamic calendar. Muslims from around the world observe fasting from dawn will dusk. Fasting cleanses a believer’s soul of his past sins. It invokes a sense of humility, righteousness, punctuality, self-restraint, and brotherhood for fellow Muslims. Here are some of the many benefits and the importance of this blessed month.

Attain Taqwa

Fasting helps a Muslim attain Taqwa, or the fear of Allah (SWT) and His Wrath. Taqwa invokes a Muslim to practice self-discipline and self-restraint as he fights his urges for all things immoral, makrooh, or haram. Fasting offers a Muslim protection and is an excellent way of observing some serious self-reflection and how to become a better Muslim in order to please the Almighty whilst simultaneously preparing for the Hereafter.

Door of Heaven are Open

In the month of Ramadan, the gates of hell are closed and the devil is chained. The doors of heaven are open. There is a door in Paradise called Al-Rayyan which is only meant for those believers who observed fasting during Ramadan.

Multiplication of Rewards

Ramadan is the most rewarding month amongst all the Islamic months. During Ramadan, Allah (SWT) multiplies a Muslim’s rewards for worship and good deeds by 10, 70, 700 times.

Blessings of Suhoor

Suhoor is the late night meal consumed before the start of the fast. Suhoor gives the Muslim a chance to offer regular night time prayers, recite the Holy Quran, spend time doing Dhikr, and offering Fajr prayers which, unfortunately, is often not offered regularly.

Repentance and the Last Ten Nights of Ramadan

Throughout Ramadan, especially the last ten nights, Muslims seek forgiveness (Sha’faat) from Allah the Almighty to cleanse their body and soul of past sins and misdeeds. Spending the last ten nights awake earns a Muslim rewards, blessings, and forgiveness for his efforts. For those who spend the last ten nights in Itikaf, in addition to earning rewards, they get a chance to self- reflect, attain peace of mind, and become patient.

Health Benefits

Fasting not only purifies a Muslim’s soul but also his body. Fasting helps reduce weight and rejuvenate the body as food consumption is modified and the body gets a chance to cleanse itself of unwanted impurities and toxins.

Ramadan brings with itself countless blessings and benefits. Observe fasting in Ramadan to be rewarded in this world and the Hereafter.
