Why Do We Fast?
- For the masses, the common people, fasting means: Realizing you are not the body and accepting yourself as a conscious being who has control over the body.
- Worship is the totality of all the things you should do to get to know yourself and to attain closeness to Allah, your essential reality.
- Fasting is a way the brain gains reign over the body.
- As for the fasting of the noble ones it’s to see the actions of others as those of Allah! To not blame the person.
