Sawm

In this lesson we will be looking at the pillar of Sawm, one of the Five Pillars of Islam, and a fascinating practice by Muslims globally. Once you have learnt about it you will probably be thinking, 'how do they do that?' This lesson will look at the purpose of fasting, what it looks like in practice, and how it links to Ramadan. If you have the TV or music on, now is the time to switch it off. If you are not using your mobile phone for this lesson, it is best advised to put it away so it doesn't distract you. You will need a black or blue pen and another colour pen such as green or red for corrections, some paper or your exercise book and more importantly a curious brain and attentive ears! Any reference to verses from the Qur’an mentioned or included within this lesson are sourced from 'Corpus Quran' using the Sahih International translation.
