The nature of Fasting by Shaykh al-Islaam (RA)

27 07 2009

This is a translation from one of the smaller publications from the words of Shaykh al-Islaam Taqee ad-Deen Ahmad ibn Abd’al-Haleem ibn Taymiyyah (RA). It has been published in this form a variety of times with a number of minor additions to the text under the title, “Haqeeqah as-Siyaam,” or “The Nature of Fasting.”

It has been revised to meet the source section of Majmoo’ al-Fataawaa (25:219) from where it appears in the original booklet with the exception of the questions, of which most appear on the earlier pages.

Brackets have been inserted to signify the additions, which earlier publishers probably took from other sections of his writings. Brief references have also been added to the text for the Ahaadeeth.

In the end all praise is due to Allaah (SWT) and upon Him we depend.
