Fasting all day for an entire month is difficult. No one wants their fasting to be in vain.
Muslims should first look in the Quran to make sure their fasting will count. Throughout the Quran, there is only one verse that explains the purpose of fasting. “O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that ye may (learn) self-restraint” (Quran 2:183). We must fast to have self-restraint.
There is no Quranic verse that explains the proper way to fast. But, did you know that Isa Al-Masih and His followers also fasted? In the Injil, Isa commanded His followers to act normal, so it wouldn’t be obvious to others that they are fasting. Isa also emphasized that if they hide the fact they are fasting, Allah who sees what is done in secret, will reward them (Matthew 6:17-18).
The main reason Christians fast is to know Allah better. Allah created people to have a relationship with them, but sin has ruined that relationship. Through Isa Al-Masih’s sacrifice, all our sins can be forgiven. We must first believe in Isa so we can know Allah.
