we should be grateful to have to the opportunity to fast. a time where we can become closer to Allah - though we may not deserve a lot of the blessings and forgiveness we may receive during this blessed month, Allah is merciful enough to forgive us from an act as simple as fasting. Subhan'allah, He is truly merciful.

In a narration by Muslim, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The reward of every (good) deed of a person is multiplied from ten to seven hundred times. Allah (SWT) says: `The reward of observing Saum is different from the reward of other good deeds; Saum is for Me, and I Alone will give its reward. The person observing Saum abstains from food and drink only for My sake.' The fasting person has two joyous occasions, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time of meeting his Rubb. Surely, the breath of one observing Saum is better smelling to Allah than the fragrance of musk.''
