Why on earth would anyone willingly choose to fast from dawn to sunset for a whole month?

Isnít that what people who are not Muslim must be thinking?

Yet, that is precisely what Muslims do every Ramadan. They abstain from food and drink, from smoking cigarettes, from sexual relations with their spouses and even from thinking bad thoughts, from dawn to sunset for a month.

So why? Why do they do it?

There are many benefits to fasting, but the answer to the question is really very simple. Muslims fast in Ramadan because Almighty God (known to them as ďAllahĒ in Arabic) tells them to. They are doing what Allah wants...
