This book will help the reader better understand the fine points about fasting. What is the nature of the things that break the fast? What are the rules by which one can know the difference between what breaks the fast and what does not?

These question are more answered by Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah in his discussion of the Nature of Fasting.

Publishers Note

All praise is due to Allah, and may He grant peace and blessings upon His Last Messenger Muhammad.

This is a translation one of the smaller publications from the works of Shaykh Al-Islam Taqiuddin Ahmad bin 'Abdul-Halim Ibn Taymiyyah. It has been published in this form a variety of times with a number of minor additions to the text under the title, "Hagigatus-Siyam," or, "The Nature of Fasting." We have revised our version to meet the source section of Majmu' AI-Fatawa (25:219) from where it appears that the original booklet - with the exception of the questions, of which most appear on earlier pages - has been taken. We have inserted brackets to signify the additions, which earlier publishers probably took from other sections of his writings. We have also added brief references to the text for the Hadiths. I would like to express gratitude to brother Ebrahim Aly Ma'rouf for the original translation of this booklet, and the Darussalam staff for their editing and layout work.

In the end all praise is due to Allah, and upon Him we depend.

Abdul-Malik Mujahid, General Manager, Darussalam

Reviewer: Simon from Sherbrooke, Canada on 08/30/2011
Mash'Allah this is a great book presenting viewpoints from different scholars, quoting from the ahadith and the noble Qu'ran when needed. Some Fatawa's are discussed in dept, but not too much, keeping the book 80 pages, light and quick to read, and again a good ratio of price vs content.

Reviewer: on 01/21/2009
The erudite, 9th century [AH] scholar Ibn Taymiyyah tackles the fiqh of fasting with a detailed analysis of its various jurisprudential rulings. Relying on his own expertise in matters of fiqh, Ibn Taymiyyah explains fasting in light of the Qur'an and Sunnah and delineates what the believer should do when traveling, when sick, when pregnant, and countless other scenarios Muslims may find themselves in during the duration of their fast. While there may be a multitude of books and pamphlets available on the same subject, very few can match the precision and depth that is so typical of an Ibn Taymiyyah work. - Al-Jumuah Vol 20, Issue 09
