Fasting in the Heat by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani extracts and explains three key lessons from the hadith on the Prophet Muhammad’s continual fast (peace and blessings be upon him).

With Ramadan around the corner, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani addresses the issue of fasting in the long and hot days in this Friday khutba. Shaykh Faraz discusses the hadith where the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) forbade Muslims from fasting continuously as he did because of his God sustains him in a unique way like no other. From this, Shaykh Faraz extracts three key lessons: (1) recognizing and being amazed at the unique and lofty station of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), (2) the love of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to engage in fasting as worship, and (3) taking on that which one has a capacity to take on and can sustain.
