“Oh Allah, I intend to fast today in accordance with your laws
And for your benefit. Please accept my fast, forgive my faults,
And bring me closer to you.” starts the fasting each day of the month
“Allahuma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa
‘alayka tawakkaltu wa ‘ala rizq-ika aftarthu.”
Oh Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I put
My trust in You and I break my fast with your sustenance.”
Fasting in Ramdan part of Islamic faith- for his existence!
An important pillar of the great faith of Islam followed by all
It is the time when rewards for fasting and worship bountiful tall.
The act of sincere prayer and worship accompany the fast
As long as Islam lasts, Muslims will fast to the last!
A holy and sacred day today the end of the month long fast
Iftars hosted, rich and poor, big and small, well read and others toast
A month of fasting brings self restraint; detoxifies both body and mind
Reminds the rich of the sufferings of the poor to feed and help in kind!
