Of the spiritual benefits of fasting

  :Tom Burns of the Columbia School of Journalism says

I spent several days of fasting at the Bowling Spa until I felt I was going through an experience of tremendous spiritual transcendence
“I have fasted many times so far, for periods ranging from one day to six days, and the motive at the beginning was the desire to purify my body from the traces of food, but I fast now to purify myself from everything that stuck to it during my life, especially after I circumambulated around the world for several months, and I saw the horrible injustice in which many people live, I feel that I am responsible in one way or another for what happens to these people and so I fast atonement for this

When I fast, my craving for food disappears completely, my body feels very comfortable, and I feel distracted from impulses and negative emotions such as envy, jealousy, and the love of dominance, just as I distract myself from things I am stuck with, such as fear, confusion, and boredom. All of this I find no effect with fasting. I feel a wonderful response to other people during the fast, and perhaps all that I said is the reason why Muslims, as I saw them in Turkey, Syria, and Jerusalem, celebrate their fast for a month a year in an attractive and spiritual celebration that I have not found anywhere else in the world
