Rewards of Fasting


Every act of goodness is rewarded. Rewards are given based on the
sincerity of the intention. Fasting is the only worship about which
Allah has said that He Himself is the reward for it. This means that one
develops such a close relationship with Allah that Allah Himself
becomes the helper.

Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him, said:
"Allah, the Lord of Honor and glory says: All other deeds of man are for
himself, but his fasting is purely for Me and I shall reward him for
it. The fast is a shield. When any of you is fasting he should abstain
from loose talk and noisy exchanges. Should anyone revile him or seek to
pick a quarrel with him, he should respond with: I am observing a fast.
By Him in Whose hands is the life of Muhammad, the breath of one who is
fasting is purer in the sight of Allah than the fragrance of musk. One
who fasts experiences two joys: he is joyful when he breaks his fast,
and he is joyful by virtue of his fast when he meets his Lord" (Bukhari
and Muslim).

Sa'ad Ibn Sahl relates that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him,
said: "There is a gate of Paradise called Rayyan through which only
those will enter on the Day of Judgment who are regular in observing the
fast and no one else. A call will go forth: Where are those who
observed the fast regularly? And they will step forth and no one beside
them will enter through that gate. After they shall have entered, the
gate will be closed and no one else will enter thereby" (Bukhari and
Muslim).

Abu Sa'id Khudri relates that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him,
said: "When a servant of Allah observes the fast for a day for the sake
of Allah, He thereby repels the Fire from him a distance of seventy
years of journeying" (Bukhari and Muslim).

Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him, said:
"He who observes the fast during Ramadhan out of sincerity of faith and
in hope of earning merit will have his past sins forgiven him" (Bukhari
and Muslim).

Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him, said:
"When Ramadhan arrives the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of
hell are locked up and satans are put in chains" (Bukhari and Muslim).
