The Limbs must Fast likewise!


Question: How does a person’s limbs fast?

Sheikh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez bin ‘Abdillaah bin Baaz, may Allaah have mercy upon him, answers:

The limbs fast by staying away from what Allaah has made unlawful from sins, this is how they fast. So he shouldn’t touch with his hands or mouth what Allaah has made unlawful for him to touch, he shouldn’t look with his eyes at what Allaah has made unlawful for him to look at, he shouldn’t walk towards what Allaah has made unlawful for him to walk towards and like this. Refraining them and abstaining from what Allaah has made unlawful.

When the Mu’min (believer) fasts, his limbs also fast.

His tongue fasts from lying, his eyes fast from looking at the prohibited things, his hand(s) fast from the forbidden touch and his legs from walking to the forbidden.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
