:) Ramadan mubarak First Purpose of Fasting in the Holy Month of Ramadan is because it is order of our Creator Allah Swt and we should follow whatever Allah Swt has ordered us in Holy Quran.

Second Reason of Fasting in the Holy Month of Ramadan is that by Fasting we will feel pain of poor who cannot Buy Food because he has no Money. Today Millions of People in Every Country of the World Sleeps Hungry because they have no money to buy food. When we will Fast in Ramadan and feel the pain of poor you will try to help those poor people. The Next Reason for Fasting in Ramadan is that Fast stops us from doing Sins. Fasting is not just name of staying away from the Food but also staying away from all sins like Lying, backbiting and abusing. According to Hadith of Prophet Muhammad as well Fast is not just stopping yourself from eating but also controlling your hands, Tongue from hurting others. Allah Swt also says in Quran that Fasting in Ramadan is obligatory on you so that you do Taqwa. Next Purpose of Fasting in Ramadan is that it is very beneficial to our Health specially to our stomach. So these are some of the Main Purpose of Fasting in Holy Ramadan. May Allah Swt help us all in benefiting fro mall these Purpose of Holy Ramadan.

Fasting teaches patience and perseverance and enhances the feeling for moral accomplishment.

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A.A.) related that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said: If a person does not refrain from lying and indecent activities, The Almighty, does not want that he should abstain from eating and drinking.(Bukhari)

Note: The idea behind this tradition is that backbiting, lying and indecent activities while fasting lessen the recompense of the fast and decrease its radiance. Therefore one should shun these things while fasting.

Voluntary deprivation of the lawful appetite leads one to appreciate the bounties of The Almighty which are usually taken for granted (until they are missed!)

For a complete month every year, Muslims go through a different and exciting experience which breaks the normal routine of life. Not only can this be refreshing, it also teaches the person to adapt to varying conditions and circumstances.

Really then why do you stuff yourselves with rich foods like pigs outside the fasting hours? It would be far better to donate that money spent to a charity that cares for the homeless or to give bakshish or give the money to a soup kitchen.

Muslims are born liars, are back-biters and abusers and child molesters. I have Muslim neighbours who engage in these sins all the time, Ramadan or no Ramadan

<quoted text>You’re a scum liar would do anything to prove your not working for Satan - your exposed again agent of Satan.
The Torah, the 5 Books of Moses and
"You will not certainly die," the serpent (Devil) said to the woman. Genesis 3:4
They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Deuteronomy 32:17
And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations. Leviticus 17:7
Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel. 1 Chronicles 21:1
Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. Psalm 109:6
In Genesis 3:1-8, Satan appears to Adam and Eve in the form of a serpent.
The above verses (Genesis 3:1-8) clearly states that Adam and Eve were betrayed by a SERPENT, now if we read the verse below (Isaiah 7:18) it clearly states that the man-ipulated satanic bible trinity is a hissing SERPENT.
Isaiah 7:18, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria."
Manipulated Christians worship the same serpent that betrayed Adam and Eve.
Not many Christian read the man-ipulated bible, only a handful of verses are read to them by the priest and they are encouraged not to read the bible A-Z by priests and pastors because if one reads the bible A-Z one will discover the bible is nothing mere then a porn and Lord of the Ring tales. People who have read the bible A-Z are leaving Christianity; this is why we are seeing churches are closing down in western countries on a regular basis.
I was speaking only about the Torah where Satan is not mentioned as Jinn or Devil or all the names of demons etc. He is simply mentioned as an Adversary and Accuser . That is what I believe too, but l go forward with it to believe that demons exist as part of the army of Satan as my Lord did cast out demons from people. So Christian beliefs are more detailed about Satan but what l was saying is it was not how Satan is presented in the Book of Moses in the Torah. If Jewish people would like to comment on Juudism it would be helpful.

So as a Christian l believe in Satan and he is mentioned in the Old Testament as a serpent and the other name for him is the Accuser and adversary. However, because Jesus showed Christians that there are demons we believe that demons exist so yes, the Christians have introduced into the Old Testament words such as Devils. But that is not what l was talking about. I was talking about only the Torah scriptures as in the Synagogues. There is not the same understandings of Satan as a devil, a jinn, a demon, unlike as in Islam. I am not sure that Jews even believe in demons and ghosts etc. It seems to be Christians elaborated on Satan and Muslims elaborated on Satan even more and that led Muhammad to give very gross focus on the Hell to come.

We do not know as Christians about Islamic beliefs such as Jinns and all the other names that are described in the Quran for Satan and its creatures. That is what I was saying because Moses did not introduce these concepts and that is the root source of Christianity and supposedly Islam. Where did Muhammad get all these concepts about Jinn made of fire as it was not from the Bible or Torah? I don't deny that serpent and devils are in the Old Testament but by devils we mean deceivers.

Churches are being rebuilt as modern and more cost effective to run. You are missing that. Its the same with schools they were built only 50 years ago but plenty of money to waste to rebuild them now. Buildings lasting only 50 years and classified as old and not fit for purpose is ridiculous.

People don't on the whole as religious people reject Christianity in favour of a diabolical Religion.

Yes, l am fasting now but only because l don't want to be fat so l am on a diet. Some Christians fast and say that they are doing it for God, but in that case the money they save should be given to charity. What is to the benefit of God to fast otherwise? Children should not be subject to it.

You trinity didn’t cast out demon from Paul, demon managed to influence Paul to write the man-ipulated bible
