We are commanded to observe the fast of Ramadan as per the following ayah (verse) of the Holy Quran): “Oh You who believe! Fasting has been prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those (nations) before you so that you may attain God-consciousness.”
This verse explains that the obligatory fasting for the believers was already a tradition following on from previous nations. Additionally, it highlights that the objective of fasting is to become more God-conscious, i.e, more conscious. Hence the goal of a fasting for Muslims should be to become a more caring person in relation to one’s responsibilities to one’s self, God and all other creation.
