Are you Really fasting???
A few young men saw an old man eating a sandwich in a secluded place.
They went near him and asked, "Mr, why aren't you fasting?"
The old man replied, "What do you mean? I am fasting! I just eat and drink water."
The young lads laughed and asked, "How can you fast in such a manner?"
The old man replied, "Its simple, I don't lie, I don't abuse or slander anyone, I don't backbite, I don't hurt anybody, I am not jealous of anyone, I protect my eyes from watching haraam, I do my duties and fulfill my responsibilities honestly and I refrain from eating haraam. But because of a disease, I'm not allowed to refrain from food and water."
The old man then asked the youth, "Are you fasting too?"
With heads hanging down, one of them replied in a barely audible voice, "No, we just don't eat food."
