Break your fast a few minutes early?
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

There is just 3 minutes left for the setting of the sun when he is told: "Eat! .. ,

What difference will it make if you break your fast now? What is another 2 or 3 minutes? You have already stayed away from food and drink for almost 15 - 16 hours.



"Even if this happens to be the weakest Muslim, in respect to obeying Allah Ta'ala, he will respond: "It is the ruling of the Qur'aan and the Ahadith that I break my fast after the setting of the sun and not before that time. It is the command of Allah Ta'ala and I cannot disobey Him.

"The weakest person's Imaan becomes so strong at this stage of his fast, that he will not break his fast. He will refuse to break his fast, even if the world's great personalities have to say so.

Alhamdulillah. May Allah Ta’ala accept the different contributions.

There is, however, one shortfall when it comes to the payment of Zakaah, and that is...
