Description :

These two treatises discuss and examine the various aspects of fasting and contribute to serving this great pillar of Islam, written by two eminent scholars; both from the blessed land of Syria.

The first is by Shaykh 'Abd-Allah Siraj al-Din al-Husayni, may Allah be pleased with him, from Allepo wherein the author examines the wisdom behind fasting: its obligations, etiquettes, requirements, benefits and virtues. It includes an interesting and lengthy discussion on the Night of Divine Decree (commonly referred to as the Night of Power), exploring its derivation, signifacance and virtues.

The second is by a contempory scholar from Damascus, Shaykh Hisham Burhani, and primarily deals with the legal aspects of fasting: its rules and regulations in accordance with the Hanafi school of Islamic Jurisprudence. They serve as a means of providing the believer with indispensible knowledge of this pillar so that he may maximize in reaping the reward and the benefit from the blessed month of Ramadhan; in words of the author, Shaykh Hisham Burhani, Allah has not legislated for us this compulsory hunger every year for an entire month except that every individual should achieve the spiritual, health and social benefits which the legislation of fasting contains.
