How and when do Muslims fast? 7 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
With a few exceptions, believers can fast at any time during the year in order to purify themselves.

Eating, drinking and inhaling things besides air invalidate a fast.

Fast begins from dawn and ends at sunset. Certain sexual acts invalidate one's fast. When the sun sets, the time of fasting for the day ends and one may eat and drink in the normal way until dawn.

Fasting in the month of Ramadan is compulsory to each and every adult and healthy Muslim - male and female. Females are excused from fasting in Ramadan during their menstruation.

Muslims believe that Allah will not accept the fast of a person who indulges in sinful or misguided activity during Ramadan. They also believe that the good deeds one performs during Ramadan are multiplied in their effect on the spiritual state of the one performing them.
