What happen we can say fun to one fasting?

In answer to this question, someone may be thinking of eating Sehri with many terms or thinking of organizing a huge iftar item. But in the real sense fasting is fun based on four things.

The First of these is love. The more love for Allah in one's heart, the more joy fasting is for him. As the hunger and thirst for water increase, so does fasting become more enjoyable. When he is in trouble as a result of abstaining from food and drink, his mind unknowingly says, O Allah! These are just for you. Allah and the servant are very happy to see such devotion.

"Yes, it's just for me," He said. And I will give the reward myself, not through the angels. (Subhanallah)

Do you know why can't most of us realize that joy of fasting?

Because we do not have enough love for God in our hearts. We are so engrossed in this world that we have no chance to think about the hereafter.


The Second step in enjoying the fasting

The second important step is by reciting the Qur'an. All of us who can recite the Qur'an correctly should finish it at least three times in the month of Ramadan. (Subhanallah)

Sad but true is the fact that I myself failed to finish that amount of Qur'an. May Allah increase the power of all of us to finish the Qur'an. We live with ourselves all year round. At least this one month we should spend as much time as possible worshiping.

 

TheThird major factor in making fasting enjoyable

The third major factor in making fasting enjoyable is the remembrance of Allah. Our beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was so obsessed with the month of Ramadan that he began to meditate on Ramadan two months before Ramadan.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: May your tongue always be wet with the remembrance of Allaah. When reciting Allah, the name of Allah Ta'ala should be in the middle of that remembrance. Such as: Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, La ilaha illallah, Allahu Akbar. And Zikir has to do without any shouting, without jumping. Zikir should be done silently, with heart, with deep love. 


The fourth condition is in the case of enjoying fasting

The fourth condition in the case of enjoying fasting is to give up all sins. It is narrated from Sahih- Bukhari that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said that a person who fasts Ramadaan with faith and in the hope of reward will be forgiven of all his previous sins. Whoever prays on the night of Ramadan, all his previous prayers will be forgiven. In other words, the month of Ramadan is a golden opportunity for all of us to gain God's infinite mercy and grace. During fasting, we have to abstain from many sins according to this provision. But all the abominable deeds or sins of the world are not recorded there. This means that if we do not assume that I am the one who commits evil deeds other than the sins mentioned in the law of rosary, we can continue - such a thought is not justified at all. In the month of Ramadan, we must stay away from all kinds of bad deeds and sins mentioned and not mentioned. We have to take care of our own eyes, ears and tongue. In this month we have to give up all our sins and surrender ourselves to the court of Allah.You have to fall in prostration and ask for forgiveness. This month is the time for salvation. Through this our fasting will become very happy.
