Suggested Reading: Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III, and His Highnesses the Aga Khan on fasting and Ramadan

As prescribed in the Qur’an, each year Muslims commemorate Ramadan — the month “in which was revealed the Qur’an” (Qur’an 2:185) — with special reverence. For Muslims, it is a month of reflection, of self-restraint, of purification and of benevolence all with an eye strengthening one’s spiritual and moral character generally. To help us in our development, fasting was prescribed: “O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil).” (Qur’an 2:183)

At the start of this year’s Ramadan, we present a selection of quotes setting out Their Highnesses the Aga Khans III and IV’s views on fasting and Ramadan as both a tenet of Islam and its practise in the modern world.
