ALI-197: Philosophy of Fasting

Understanding the philosophy behind acts of worship enables one to perform these acts with better understanding and insight, and this increases the sincerity which in turn brings one closer to the Most Merciful. Why are we commanded to abstain from the most basic of human needs from sunrise to sunset for an entire month? What effects does this have on our lives? and how can we maximize our benefit from this form of worship so that in the end we come out as reformed individuals? These are just some of the questions that we shall try to address in this webinar inshaAllah.
