^ Wow all my favourite posters are back....surely this is the end of KTL
Fasting is not just about FOOD!! fasting is prescribed to us just as it was prescribed to the people before us.....
also when you think about it you cant have 1.2 billion people not eating for 24hrs......fasting is for a Holy Month......if you like to fast 24 hrs then thats even better sacrifice but Allah is not asking you to do so....
36 Chambers....to answer your question, i get extremely annoyed when people make silly rulings in Islam, and then others who have no authority make things up aswell....of course you can brush your teeth....Islam is practical and not meant to be a burden....being clean is one of the main priorities of a Muslim.....i know SOME Muslims exceed Allahs limits....you please tell your friend stop exagerating and be of the moderate like Allah says....
2.In Surah AL-MAEDA chapter number 5 verse number 77
"Say: O followers of the Book! be not unduly immoderate in your religion, and do not follow the low desires of people who went astray before and led many astray and went astray from the right path. "
