Getting to Know Allah Through Fasting

Siraj Wahhaj


In this Friday sermon, Imam Siraj Wahhaj reflects on the purpose an benefits of fasting. He reflects on verse 184 from Surat al-Baqara:
وَأَن تَصُومُوا خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ
And fasting is better for you, if only you knew.

Imam Siraj encourages everyone to fast the month of Ramadan, and establish the pillars of Islam. He highlights that Allah Most High is in no need of our fast. However, we fast to come to know Allah and for our own benefit.
