There are a lot of benefits from fasting. According to Habib Abdurrahman Al-Habsy, the benefits both spiritual and physical.
“Fasting educates someone to be a person who is patient and trustful to Allah SWT,” said Al-Habsy through press release on Friday.
Al-Habsy said fasting and other worships during Ramadhan teach people to hold their emotions. Another benefit is people will be more fearful to Allah SWT.
“Third, fasting also has social benefit, from practising discipline to strengthen unity especially with families and gather with the community. This is the effect of ijtimaiyyah (togetherness),” Al-Habsy explained.
Al-Habsy said, the fourt benefit is for human’s health. As people knew from many health studies of fasting, someone who fasting for one month is healthier than those who doesn’t.
