Many parts of the world will have summer which means longer hours of fasting
What are the motivating factors to fast in hot days?
first of all
Who mandated fasting the answer is Allah?
How long or short that they
As there is Allah
now when Allah mandates fasting
Upon different regions
Yet he does not get give any permission for them to fact to break their fast
Due to hot weather or to long hours
Wouldn't that fall under the category that Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can bear
The answer is definitely
this means that if a
person in the Scandinavian
He is too fast
Break his fast
Then fast again for 20 hours
Isn't this hard?
Of course it is hard. Is it possible?
Definitely it is possible and the Muslims over there are doing it without any problem at home
You see the Baraka
the power the energy
comes only from Allah
It doesn't come from our food and drinks
People would argue say share come on this is not logical
Logic is not
Something you can apply in religion
because your logic differs than my logic and
Logic differs then shaytan's logic
What does Satan have to do with it?
He is the father of all
Weird and sick logic
Imagine Allah creates Adam with his two hands and
Orders the angels and
Represented in Satan to prostrate to Adam they all prostrate
Why don't you prostrate is it with all due respect?
This cannot happen. I am better than him
You created him of clay and I was created of fire and fire is superior to clay
The conclusion it's not logical for me to prostrate
What was the consequence of such logic?
Satan is doomed in Hellfire for
now if you try to apply the same logic
Watch out because you may fall under the same category
Food and drink is needed for our bodies. But when a man
Comes on top
Reach it's perfect limit you do not
Food and drink as you think you do
Come on. What do you mean?
The Prophet was telling us that the first year
the rain and the crops
one-third of the
rain and crops would
Cease to come the second year
2/3 of the rain and crops would stop the third year
no rain, and no crops would grow and
The animals would die and starve because of that
So the companion said O Prophet of Allah if there's no crops no animals and no rain fall
What would make the people live?
the answer was
for their food and drink
Imagine when people's Eman reach its peak
Suffice it would suffice them to make thicker than to eat and drink
so 20 hours of fasting in the
North Pole or
somewhere close to that area is not that difficult as you would suspect as
for hot areas the same applies
But usually it's not this long. Usually it's like 16 hours 15 hours give or take an hour
It's hot. It's humid. People are sweating and losing fluid yet. They are still
Capable of fasting with the grace of Allah. So what motivates them?
easy to say when I fast
When it is all air-conditioned and I'm resting and not working is my reward
the same as those who are fasting in hot areas and
Losing and wasting a lot of their energy
The answer is definitely not. So what motivates them is
the greatest reward that awaits them which is greater than the
reward of lazy people like us
sitting in the comfort of their offices and in their homes
