The following 'Bahasa' text translated to 'English' while preserving any html tags: "The Power of Fasting that Can Protect from These 3 Scary Things"

By performing fasting properly solely for the sake of Allah SWT, it will bring abundant rewards.

Dream - Fasting in Islam is divided into two, namely obligatory fasting and voluntary fasting. Obligatory fasting, for example, is Ramadan fasting. While voluntary fasting, for example, is fasting on Mondays and Thursdays. Fasting is a practice that is not only about abstaining from food and drink. But a Muslim who fasts must also be able to restrain their desires. In addition, they must also avoid sinful behavior. Because in this fasting worship, if done sincerely for the sake of Allah SWT, it will bring abundant rewards. In addition, fasting also has extraordinary privileges for those who observe it.

"Where fasting can become a shield from very frightening matters. What are these matters? Here is the explanation as summarized by Dream through various sources."

The Power of Fasting that Can Protect from These 3 Scary Things

"Fasting Becomes a Shield from Frightening Matters"

In a hadith it is explained that fasting can be a shield or protection from very frightening matters. What are those matters?

1. Shield from Wicked Deeds

Fasting can be a shield against wicked deeds. This is because wicked deeds are strictly forbidden by Allah SWT and surely there is a great sin behind them. As explained in the hadith of Abu Hurairah: "So when one of you is fasting, let him not utter obscenities and let him not behave ignorantly (such as mocking or fighting while shouting)."

Well, in this case, fasting is able to protect someone from dirty words, ignorant actions, and other sins. As explained in the word of Allah SWT through the verse Al-Baqarah 183: "O you who have believed, fasting has been prescribed upon you as it was prescribed upon those before you so that you may become righteous."

2. Shield from the Torment of Hellfire

All acts of immorality committed by someone in the world will receive punishment from Allah SWT, both in this world and in the hereafter. However, the punishment will be even worse in the hereafter, in the form of the torment of hellfire. However, fasting is a practice that can serve as protection from the torment of hellfire. The Prophet Muhammad said, "Fasting is a shield from hellfire, just like the shield of one of you from warfare." (Narrated by Ahmad, Nasai, and Ibn Majah with a authentic chain of narrators)

Hafidz Ibnu Rajab ra in his book Jami' Al-'Ulum said: "If fasting is a shield for oneself from various sins (in the world), then in the hereafter, that fasting is more deserving to be a shield from the punishment of hell. However, if that fasting cannot be a shield for oneself from sins in the world, then it will certainly not be a shield for oneself from the fire of hell in the hereafter."

3. Shield from Calamity and Disaster

Besides that, fasting can also become a shield from calamities and disasters. Considering that calamities always come unexpectedly and have a significant impact on human life. In order to avoid calamities, fasting becomes a powerful practice that can protect you. The Prophet Muhammad said, "Indeed, fasting is a shield from the fire of hell, and a shield from calamities and disasters of the time."

As-Suyuthi said: "Narrated by Ibn Najjar" and marked it as a weak hadith. Although the hadith is weak, even unacceptable, the meaning and content of the hadith are true. Because all types of worship are able to protect a person from calamities. Allah SWT says in Surah Ash-Shura verse 30: "And whatever misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned. And He pardons much."

The above verse indicates that the occurrence of a disaster is a sin and transgression. Furthermore, it also signifies that worship and goodness can ward off calamity.
