He explained that the health benefits of fasting are countless and incalculable, while there are many duties that the Holy Month requires of us, so we have to eliminate bad habits in our reality.
He added: "Ramadan is a month for self-review with strong faith actions, as well as an opportunity to prepare the cognitive, scientific, moral and ethical structure to achieve the scientific, moral renaissance and civilized behavior."
Dr. Al-Khader Abdel-Baqi emphasized that Ramadan is an opportunity for piety and good deeds, and self-isolation. He is calling for good behavior and good treatment, through obedience and return to Allah to achieve goodness in society.
