Abdal Hakim Murad (T. J. Winter)
A talk delivered on the first day of Ramadan 2009, focusing on the famous hadith qudsi in which God says “Fasting is mine.”
“Fasting is not just about another thing that we do—or in this case something that we don’t do—that brings about a reward in the next world. It has to do with the fundamental orientation of the human heart towards the Lord of the worlds.”
