On Ramdan

Allah the Exalted says in the Holy Qur'an:
O' ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may learn self-restraint. Observe fast for a certain number of days; if anyone of you is sick, or on a journey, he should complete the reckoning by fasting on a corresponding number of other days and for those who can afford it there is a ransom: the feeding of a man who is indigent. But whoso does good of his own accord, it is better for him, and that your fast is btter for you if you did but know.
The month of Ramadan is the month in which was revealed the Qur'an guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present let him fast through the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, let him fast the same number of other days. Allah desires for you ease. he desires not hardship for you.

Verse 2: 184-186
