The following are some basic rulings related to fasting.
The Pillars of Fasting
1. The Niyyah
From the issues related to all acts of worship, that which if it is absent then the act of worship is null and void, the Niyyah (intention)
Fasting like all other acts of worship must have the Niyyah of the worshipper to perform the action for the sake of Allah. As is the case with all other acts of worship the place of the niyaah is the heart, in no act of worship is the niyyah uttered.
Allah the most high mentions (the meaning of which):
“Say: Do you inform Allah concerning your religion? While Allah knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and Allah is All-aware of everything”
(Suratul Hujuraat Vs 16)
