Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
إذَا صُمْتَ فَلْيَصُمْ سَمْعُك وَبَصَرُك وَلِسَانُك عَنِ الْكَذِبِ وَالْمَآثِمِ ، وَدَعْ أَذَى الْخَادِمِ ، وَلْيَكُنْ عَلَيْك وَقَارٌ وَسَكِينَةٌ يَوْمَ صِيَامِكَ ، وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ يَوْمَ فِطْرِكَ وَيَوْمَ صِيَامِكَ سَوَاءً
“If you fast, let your hearing, sight and tongue observe fasting from lying and sins. You should desist from harming your neighbor, and be distinguished by tranquillity and calmness on the day you observe fasting and do not make the day on which you break your fasting and the day you fast the same (in behavior).”
– Al-Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaibah (8973)
This is a clear picture from the scenes of the heedfulness for Ramadhan, and for that fasting is prescribed for the refinement of the souls, the purification of the hearts, the realization of taqwa, the abstainment of sins, and the rectification of hearts, speech and actions.
So, how beautiful it is for the one who welcomes this blessed month in order to improve the readiness in seizing its goodness.
