Of course, the greatest benefits of fasting Ramadan are in Allah’s acceptance, and in the taqwa (God-consciousness) gained during this blessed month, especially in the last remaining days when our salat and dhikr intensifies insha’Allah. The physical and health benefits are in fact good “side effects.” May Allah the Exalted accept our fasting, prayers, and charity, and increase our knowledge of His Quran, our guidebook and source of comfort, enlightenment, and motivation.
