Fasting enjoys, in the eyes of Allah, a grace unparalleled by other sets of piety and worship.

In a Qudsi hadith (utterances attributed to Allah outside the Qur'an), Allah says:

"All man's work belongs to him. A good deed is repaid from tenfold to seven hundred times",

Go said:

"Fasting belongs to Me and I repay."

The Prophet said:

By He in whose hands Muhammad's soul rests, Allah prefers the stench of the mouth of he who fasts to the scent of musk."


"Al-Bukhari and Muslim" both reported that the Prophet had said:

"With the advent of Ramadan, to the portals of Paradise are opened, the gates to hell are closed , and the devils are chained."

According to "Abu Hurayra", the Prophet. said at the beginning of Ramadan:

"A glorious and blessed month has come. Allah ordained that you fast during it. During this month, the portals of Paradise are opened, the gates of hell are closed, and the devils are chained. In this month there is one night which is worth more than one thousand months".


The Prophet said:

"Whoever fasts during Ramadan out of faith seeking no reward, will have all his past sins forgiven."

"Abu Hurayra" reported that the Prophet also said:

"Whoever breaks the fast even for one day in Ramadan without any legitimate reason, cannot compensate for it by a period of fasting at another time during the year".
