Fasting is one of the five pillars or obligations of Islam that each Muslim is required to participate in so that they are seen as living a good and responsible life. The 30-day fast during Ramadan helps fulfill this obligation. Through this time, Muslims make a commitment to obey, discipline themselves, fellowship with other Muslims, give to the poor and needy, appreciate the gifts of God, and become spiritually stronger
Recently, we visited a family who left Islam and recently came to the Lord. It was amazing to see the changes God has made in their lives in such a short time. In ordinary conversation, they talked about the upcoming “Easter Service” at their local church. The way they talked about it was as if it were a very special day- like a wedding or occasion that was at least this special.
