Several years ago during the month of Ramazan, I was fasting at my workplace, one American co-worker well educated asked me about the benefits of fasting. I told him the mainly that you develop self-confidence and will power. He said I was a chain smoker and used to drink. But without fasting, one day i decided not to smoke anymore or no drink either. Since many years i do not smoke nor drink.
He further added, it is entirely your own mind as how to deal with certain situation. I doubt God will ever commands the believers to stay starved for the whole day and do not drink. What God gets out of this?
How a Muslim offer five-time prayers and fast for one month in cities of North Pole where there is a day of six months. He said Your Holy book must be talking something different but you all understood it wrongly.
Any comments. Please???
