As-Siyaamu Junnah (Fasting Is Protection)

Jaabir  (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated, that the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessing upon him) said,  ((Our Lord, the Mighty and Majestic said:  As-Siyaamu Junnah, it protects by it the servant from hell fire.))

As-Sawmu Junnah (The Fast is Protection), this statement has been affirmed to the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessing upon him), from many directions.  Taken from “As-Saheehayn”, Saheeh Al-Bukhaariyy and Saheeh Muslim (May Allah bestow His enormous mercy upon them both), from a Hadeeth narrated by Aboo Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessings upon him)said, as well as being taken from Emaam Ahmad (May Allah bestow His great mercy upon him) with an addition, that ((As-Siyaamu Junnah, and it fortifies by making one impervious to hell fire.)) 

Taken from the Hadeeth of Uthmaan Ibn Abiyy Al-‘Aas (May Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessings upon him) said, ((As-Sawmu Junnah from hell fire, just as a shield is for one of you in battle.))
