All praise and thanks be to Allah, the hardwork of our brother has paid off.
We can now offer to you, Dear Reader, our latest E-Book The Reliance of the Believer in Ramadhan which the votary can consult to perfect his fast and reap the maximum benefits from this blessed month.
Fasting is one of the pillars of Islam. It is an act of worship like none other for it requires abstention from man's natural urges and needs.
It has been prescribed as a weapon against Satan whose way to the hearts of Man is through man's desires. When Man is able to control and overpower the evil urges within him, he attains tranquility of the heart and soul. When he attains this, he is able to obey His Lord and perfect his service to Him.
The fruits of the observance of this act of worship, which Allah has ascribed to Himself by saying,
“Fasting is for My sake and I shall reward accordingly” cannot be realised except through its perfection.
For this, the votary requires the necessary knowledge. Knowledge is like the leader and deeds are its followers. Knowledge and deed are like twins that are inseparable.
It is with this in mind that I have persevered to provide in this book all that is required by the fasting person during the month of Ramadhan until he completes his fast with the `Eid ul Fitr prayer.
I have included in this book the arguments of different scholars and also provided relevant proofs from the theological texts so that the believer may perform his obligations in Ramadhan equipped with knowledge and conviction.
