In this Friday sermon, Imam Siraj Wahhaj reflects on the purpose and benefits of fasting. He reflects on verse 184 from Surat al-Baqara:

وَأَن تَصُومُوا خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

And fasting is better for you, if only you knew.

Imam Siraj encourages everyone to fast the month of Ramadan, and establish the pillars of Islam. He highlights that Allah Most High is in no need of our fast. However, we fast to come to know Allah and for our own benefit.

This Friday sermon was delivered at Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga, Canada on June 9th, 2017.
