THE QURAAN ON FASTING

The first step for a Muslim to realize is the fact that fasting the month of Ramadaan is obligatory and that Allaah Almighty has prescribed it for us in His Mubaraak Holy Book:
Allaah [Subhanhu Wa Ta'alaa] has told us about Fasting in Ramadaan on several places in the Qur’aan Al Hakeem.




"Fasting for a fixed number of days is prescribed for you, but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number (should be made up) from other days. And as for those who can fast with difficulty, (an old man, etc.), they have (a choice either to fast or) to feed a poor person (for every day). But whoever does good of his own accord, it is better for him. And that you fast, it is better for you if only you know."
Allaah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you. (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allaah for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him"
