Fasting the month of Ramadan is such an important pillar of Islam that we believe it is a mercy and blessing from Allah and a great chance for us to express gratitude to Him and to have our sins forgiven.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
Whoever observes fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
For new Muslims who are fasting for the first time this Ramadan, we prepared this mini-folder with interesting stories, reflections and memories of converts who shared their experiences of fasting.
