In Response To: Objections on “HAQIQAT-E- SOAM” (Zubair Hussain)

I am getting confused. As a non Urdu speaker who cannot read THE TRUTH ABOUT SOUM" By Dr. Qamar Zaman, can someone please tell me if the Quran says to stop eating in Ramadan or not?
My understanding is that fasting does not just mean abstinence from food and water but also self restraint, being careful, getting empowered against evil, avoiding overstepping the Laws, exercising caution, strengthening one’s ‘self’, preserving the ‘self’ against deterioration and good conduct. Reading the Quran with meaning, understand its words and put them into action, not blind recitation.The Quran has the approach of developing our “selfs”, to have a strong personality that does not disintegrate under hardship but bears this with patient perseverance. A one month training course, not to short, not unbearably long, is prescribed for us. When we deny ourselves the instinctive life giving benefits of food and water we are exercising a most profound effect upon our selfs. It would not be a test if there were no hardships like thirst or hungar and it is the way we approach this that allows us to benefit from the fast or not do so (many people look like zombies during the month of Ramadan, not cleaning their faces properly in a vain attempt to look pious!)
Just because the majority treat it like a joke or a hermit exercise and gain no benefit, does not mean it should be abandoned.
Please explain.
