1)Fasting in Ramadan helps in achieving Taqwaa. Allaah Ta’ala says: “ O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous (achieve Taqwaa) ” (Al-Baqarah, 2:183) When we change our attitude while fasting and have a good mental state, we can achieve Taqwaa. Jabir ibn Abullah said, “When you fast, your hearing, your vision, and your tongue should also fast by avoiding lies and sins. You should not abuse your servant.

The Reward for Fasting is Immense “Every action of the son of Adam is given manifold reward, each good deed receiving ten times its like, up to seven hundred times. Allah the Most High said, ‘Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I will give recompense for it, he leaves off his desires and his food for Me.’ For the fasting person there are two times of joy; a time when he breaks his fast and a time of joy when he meets his Lord, and the smell coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better with Allah than the smell of musk.” (Al-Bukhari) Also, Sahl
