The people of the world, generally speaking, have no idea what fasting is all about: the way Islam teaches us to do.
Even though fasting has been part of everybody’s ancient cultural — call it Islamic — heritage and tradition, from God Almighty.
Given to all in their own respective time periods, through their own divine messengers and leaders that came to them from God.
But the world simply forgot how to do it right. The world has no clue.
As a result, everybody fasts the way they want.
For example: half-day fast; dawn-to-dusk fast; fast only from meat; fast but keep drinking water.
And so on.
Isn’t it time for Muslims to inform and teach the rest of the world — the entire world that is — how fasting should be done according to the commands and teachings of God — the way it was practiced and shown to the world by God’s Messenger, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam?
The way fasting is really supposed to be done?
Maybe this Ramadan is the time to do it, do you think?
Will Muslims of the world rise to this challenge and help their non-Muslim brothers and sisters everywhere to see how fasting should be done?
