Benefits of Ramzan



  • Fruits of Fasting, Every shop is closed people suffering with heat stroke cant eat or drink



  • رمضان کے مہینے میں جب دوپہر کا کھانا نہیں پکایا جاتا تو منتقی طور پر ایک گھر کا خرچہ تیس فیصد کم ہو جانا چاہئے

    لیکن کتنی عجیب بات ہے کہ روزہ داروں کا بجٹ پچاس فیصد بڑھ جاتا ہے

    پھر بھی کہتے ہیں کہ رمضان کا مہینہ بڑی برکتوں کا ہے



  • پھر بھی کہتے ہیں کہ رمضان کا مہینہ بڑی برکتوں کا ہے

    But only for those who fast!!

    You are right grocery ought to be slashed by 30% if a meal is skipped but they actually go up. This whole month is festive. The core ideas behind fasting - tolerance, caring about have-nots, living below the means all are shattered in the festive mood of Ramazan. If those festivities last for day or two economic impact could be ignored but they last for 30 days and climaxed at Eid. Gov't issues subsidies on food items if subsidies fall from sky like mun o sulva not from tax payers money. Beside few textiles and food industries everything other sector of economy is very slow in Ramazan. Ramzan is Baburkat for few trader Joe's but for huge majority it's a burden - physical, economic and mental. I don't know what's the point of keeping this centuries old tradition. I don't see much benefit keeping it alive.



  • Shirazi Sahib,

    We have also noticed where during the month of Ramadgan, fasting Muslims eat all that stuff which is never part of their menu in regular life.

    kachori, jalebi, samosa, pratha, halwa and several types of junk food is consumed during Sehri & Aftari.

    That is also against the philosophy of Fasting.



  • "That is also against the philosophy of Fasting."

    I second that!



  • @Javed Sheikh sahib

    That is also against the philosophy of Fasting.

    A day-long roza without water and food doesn't come from any philosophy. Doctors in the west have researched on fasting and come with with a conclusion that the only fasting that may be helpful is intermittent fasting, meaning skipping meals here an there or avoiding certain foods, or skipping foods but drinking only fluids etc.



  • " Doctors in the west have researched on fasting and come with with a conclusion that the only fasting that may be helpful is intermittent fasting,"

    Didn't Doctors also once determined that Margarine is good for all and eggs are not good?

    There are many other examples where you can't take their word as " whole fact and nothing but fact".



  • @curiousity ji

    Please enlighten the forum and post any study that states that a day long fast without food and water is actually good for health.



  • @Qarar Jee

    Noting that in Islam, elderly, sick / ill, pregnant, feeding mothers, anyone who can become ill/sick Must Not Fast, I will research and provide info for those who are healthy and do not fall in the above mentioned categories.



  • Can we describe Islamic fasting as self-mutilation or self-harm? "Self harm is defined as the intentional direct injuring of body tissue, most often done without suicidal intentions."



  • @ Qarar

    Can we describe Islamic fasting as self-mutilation or self-harm?

    No!



  • let seculars burn on us muslim,s fasting.lol.

    fasting makes us strong and resilient while secular pansies and feminine boys cant even tolerate few hours of thirst or hunger.lol.it will be beneficial for us muslims when we decide to take over Pakistan and islamise it.

    be afraid be very afraid.lol



  • ہمارے محلے کے مولوی صاحب نے بتلایا تھا کہ آخری جمعہ کا روزہ رکھنے والے کو ستر سال کے روزوں کا ثواب ملتا ہے

    میں اس وقت ساتویں جماعت میں پڑھتا تھا تین دن کے بعد میں نے بھی جمعہ کا روزہ رکھ لیا

    اب اگلا روزہ بیاسی سال کی عمر میں رکھوں گا



  • The Molvi also told not to drink alcohol and not to have extra-marital relationships!!!
