Fasting the lunar 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 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 folder which contains many interesting stories, reflections, and memories of converts who shared their experiences of fasting.
