Revival of Sunnah - #4 Hasten to break your fast

Since 2014-09-29

The Sunnah to hasten breaking your fast

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: «People will remain in good as long as they are quick to break the fast» (Bukhari and Muslim).

This is one of the beautiful merciful sunnahs in Islam, Allah said:

{مَا يَفْعَلُ اللَّهُ بِعَذَابِكُمْ إِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ وَآمَنْتُمْ }

Translation: {What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing} [An-Nisa’:147].

Fasting is only from dawn till sunset, and Allah loves that we stick to what he ordered us to do. The meaning behind this hadith is that people are committed to the Sunnah, that they are merciful to themselves and their families and do not extend their fasting hours without need to. This Sunnah is easily applied with dates or water as soon as Maghrib time starts.

And do not forget our slogan:

{وَإِنْ تُطِيعُوهُ تَهْتَدُوا }

Translation: {And if you obey him, you will be (rightly) guided} [An-Nur:54].
