Fasting Rules and Recommendations

Fasting from dawn to sunset during Ramadan is not just a practice but a transformative journey that combines faith, spiritual growth, and self-discipline. The holy month brings both the spiritual enlightenment and health benefits that fasting brings to our lives.

1. Intention is Key (Niyyah):

Each day before the pre-dawn meal (Suhoor), it’s crucial to set your intention to fast. This personal commitment is the foundation of your fasting journey, aligning your heart and mind with your spiritual goals.


2. Understanding Exemptions:

Recognizing that personal circumstances vary, Islam provides exemptions from fasting for those who are sick, elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding, menstruating, or traveling.

If you fall into any of these categories, you’re encouraged to either make up the missed fasts at a later date or offer a meal to someone in need for each day missed. This flexibility underscores the faith’s emphasis on compassion and individual well-being.


3. Fasting Hours and Practices:

Observing the exact timing of fasting, from pre-dawn (Suhoor) to sunset (Iftar), is vital. Our community in San Bernardino follows these timings closely, adapting to our local geographical nuances. Breaking your fast with dates and water not only follows the Sunnah but also provides essential nutrients to replenish your energy.


4. Behavioral Conduct and Spiritual Growth:

Ramadan is a time to foster not only physical discipline but also spiritual and moral growth. Engaging in additional prayers, reading the Quran, and performing acts of charity are highly encouraged. This holy month calls for a reflection on our behavior, urging us to avoid negative speech and actions, and to strive for personal betterment.


5. Community and Togetherness:

One of the beauties of Ramadan is how it brings our community together, reinforcing bonds through shared meals and prayers. Participating in communal Iftars and Taraweeh prayers enriches our collective spirit, providing support and encouragement to everyone involved.


6. Balancing Health with Spirituality:

While fasting is spiritually rewarding, it’s essential to listen to your body and maintain your health. A balanced diet, adequate hydration during non-fasting hours, and moderate physical activity can help you sustain your fast while keeping your body nourished.


Health and Nutrition

Maintaining balanced nutrition and physical well-being is vital during Ramadan. To support energy levels and hydration from Sehr to Iftar, focus on:

Balanced Meals: At Sehr, include complex carbohydrates and proteins to sustain energy. At Iftar, begin with dates and water to follow the Sunnah, then consume a balanced meal for energy replenishment.

Hydration: Drink plenty of water between Iftar and Sehr. Limit caffeine and sugary drinks to avoid dehydration.

Well-being: Maintain a regular sleeping schedule, engage in light exercise, and rest as needed. Listen to your body’s signals.
