This is the first time I am posting so if there are any mistakes please ignore them. My question to everyone is: in this time of today how much of cleansing does fasting really do? I have had friends who fast for the sake of fasting and it is like a duty to them that they have to do once a year for a month.
On the other hand there are people who do not fast at all saying they cannot keep themselves empty for so long. Then there are people who do fast but without the prayers, and as we know that fasting without prayer is as good as being simply hungry for the whole day.
So my question to you is; do you fast? And if you do how much does it cleanse your mind and soul at the end of the month or is it just a practice for a month which does not yield any results at the end of the day?
Your comments please.
