Fasting also affects our psychological, spiritual and emotional being. The Prophet (pbuh) said that fasting is a shield, and if one starts fighting or cursing we should reply with “I am fasting”.
We should avoid in our speech or actions, any corruptness or lewd behaviour. If anyone seeks an argument we reply with “I am fasting”. If we are able to do that then we have set the stage for a Ramadan which will be one acceptable to Allah and one which will make a difference and a change in our lives!
Abu Huraira related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “If a person does not avoid false talk and false conduct during Siyam, then Allah does not care if he abstains from food and drink.” (Bukhari, Muslim)
