How many pounds a day do you lose by fasting?
It’s impossible to answer this question, because it depends on the fasting person and the amount of food eaten. Also, Ramadan isn’t about losing weight. It’s about becoming closer to Allah, it’s about being in control of yourself and by feeling the need of Allah. You get to teach yourself that you need Allah and that you are nothing without His blessings. Also, you get to feel how the poor people and the less lucky live. This will make you more grateful and more aware of your blessings.
Verily, the dwellers of Paradise that Day, will be busy in joyful things. They and their wives will be in pleasant shade, reclining on thrones. They will have therein fruits (of all kinds), and all that they will ask for. (It will be said to them): “Salamun” (Peace be on you), a Word from the Lord, Most Merciful.Qur’ān [36:55-58] (via alfirdaws)
