Fasting is meant to bring worshipers closer to god through steady remembrance, reflection and sacrifice. Daily fasting, combined with five daily prayers and extended evening prayers, challenges worshipers to focus on their actions, deeds and thoughts, rather than on material desires and instant gratification.

Why Do Muslims Fast?

Fasting is a requirement in islam a reset for the mind, body and soul. Muslims are expected to show self-control and deeper spirituality during Ramadan. It’s also a month of gratitude. By abstaining from food and water during the day, the faithful are reminded of those less fortunate.



Each night during Ramadan, mosques and aid organizations set up tents and tables to serve free evening meals for the poor. Muslims must abstain from all eating, drinking or smoking from dawn to dusk each day for the entire lunar month, around 30 days. A single sip of water or coffee, or a puff of a cigarette, is enough to invalidate the fast.
