Auspicious month of Ramadan arrived and Muslims in all corners of the world, fast eagerly. Islamic narrations give us some informative information regarding to philosophy of fasting. For example, forth Imam, Imam Sajjad (A.S), in treatise-of-rights (Right n.11) says: “And the right of fasting is that you should know it is a veil, which God has set up over your tongue, your hearing and your sight, your private parts and your stomach.” Maybe you ask what is the necessity and benefits of that. This question is answered in the following: “To protect you from the Fire [of hell]. This meaning is asserted in the tradition: “Fasting is a shield against the Fire.”” (Ibid) Another question comes to mind: does it include all who fast? The answer is this: “Thus if your parts become tranquil within the veil of fasting, you have hopes of being protected. But if you leave them agitated behind the veil and let them lift the sides of the veil, so they look at things that are not lawful for them to look at that incite lust and powers that are beyond the limits of being God-fearing, you will not be safe from tearing through the veil and coming out of it. And there is no power but in God.” (Ibid)
