Two joys for those who fast

Two joys for those who fast

On the authority of Abu Harayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) it is reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said,

“Allah(swt) says: The Fast is for Me and I will give the reward for it, as he (the one who observes the fast) leaves his sexual desire, food and drink for My Sake. Fasting is like a shield (from sins and the hellfire), and he who fasts has two joys: a joy when he breaks his fast and a joy when he will meet his Lord (on the day of judgement). And the smell emanating from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the Sight of Allah than even the smell of musk.’”

[Bukhari and Muslim]
