The Best Of Those Who Fast

Ibn al-Qayyim [رحمه الله] said:

«فأفضل الصائمين أكثرهم ذكراً لله عز وجل في صومهم.»

❝The best of those who fast are those who remember Allaah [عز و جل] the most in their fast.❞

[Al-Waabil As-Sayyib, (Page: 153) | Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Miraath al-Anbiyya]

Al-Hafidh Ibn Rajab [رحمه الله] said:

«اعلم أنَّ المؤمنَ يجتَمعُ له في شَهر رمضَان جهادَان لنَفْسِه: – جهادٌ بالنَّهار على الصِّيام ، – وجهادٌ باللَّيل على القيام ، فمَن جمعَ بينَ هذَيْن الجهادَين ، ووَفَّى بحُقُوقهما ، وصَبَر عليهما ، وفَّى أجرَه بغَير حسَابٍ.»

❝Know that in the month of Ramadan there are two Jihads of the self which take place for the believer:

– Jihad of the daytime with fasting.

– Jihad of the night time with standing for prayer.

So whoever gathers between these two Jihads, fulfills their rights, is patient with them then he is given his reward without limit.❞
