Fasting is to abstain from indulging one’s carnal appetite. For most people, this means the mere abandonment of food, drink, and physical intimacy from dawn to dusk. But, for some, fasting is more than denying the body of its needs. Rather, it is a program of discipline with many subtle health and spiritual benefits. What are the merits of fasting? And, how does one fast beyond food and drink? Come learn how you can turn fasting into a tool for spiritual discipline through a study of Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali’s "Inner Dimensions of Fasting" taught by Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali of Zaytuna College.
