Pillars of fasting in islam
First pillar: Abstention from everything that invalidates
Fasting from the dawn until sunset
Allah, the Exalted, says: [... and eat and drink until the white
thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread
(the darkness of the night), then complete your Fast till the nightfall.]
(Al-Baqarah: 187)
‘White and black thread’, as used in the above verse imply,
lightness of the day and darkness of the night respectively.
Second pillar: Making Intention
This implies that he who abstains from all forms of eating,
drinking and other things that invalidate Fasting, should do that with
the sole aim of worshiping Allah Almighty alone. The Prophet(peace
and blessings be upon him) said: “Every action shall be judged
according to intention and behind every action by a man is a specific
intention.”
Permissible Acts during Fasting in islam:
1. Bathing and sitting in a pool of water to cool oneself off.
2. Swallowing one’s spit and mucus.
3. To taste food on the condition that anything of it does not slip
into the throat.
