Fasting is basically refraining from eating, drinking, or doing certain activities for a specified time. Fasting itself actually existed before the religion of Islam came, but the objectives, procedures, timing, conditions and implementation are different from what is taught in the Islamic religion. Fasting not only has a spiritual dimension, but also receives attention from a hadith and health perspective. The hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad SAW have conveyed the values ​​of fasting as a way to achieve closeness to God and self-control from despicable things and lead to goodness towards the true nature of a human being. In parallel, several medical experts, who have conducted research on the impact of fasting on health, have also revealed the physiological and psychological benefits of the practice of fasting.

In the hadiths, the Prophet Muhammad SAW emphasized the importance of self-control, patience and moral development during the fasting month of Ramadan. The hadith also teaches the concept of empathy towards people who are less fortunate and promotes good deeds and abandoning bad ones.

From a health perspective, fasting has been proven to have a positive impact on the body and mind. Intermittent fasting, in particular, has been linked to increased insulin sensitivity, reduced risk of heart

disease, and even improved cognitive function. Apart from that, fasting can also help the body's detoxification process and improve hormonal balance.
