Which one are you?

Fasting

The great scholar Ibn Al-Jawzi (may ALLAH have mercy upon him) divides the fasting of people into three categories:

1) The fasting of laypeople – It is to abstain from eating, drinking and sexual intercourse from dawn until sunset.

2) The fasting of the elite – It is to abstain from disobeying ALLAH The Almighty all day long as well as abstaining from eating, drinking and having sexual intercourse from dawn until sunset.

3) The fasting of the super elite – It is to have your heart fast and abstain from thinking about anything other than ALLAH The Almighty.
