What if you fast and you want to know if it’s good for you?
Well when you eat Suphor you most likely fast till after Sunset and eat iftar to break the fast
But is that good for you?
Well while we don’t condemn fasting, we reocommend that if you have some health complications you don’t do it.
Fasting for such long period causes dehydration and energy loss, even though you ate the food filled with energy (Suphor) before Dawn it isn’t good to keep your stomach that empty for long.
When you are dehydrated it causes headache, tiredness and you can’t concentrate.
So imagine if you are Fasting and meditaing at the same time, and you loose concentration because of dehydration, its not good for those WHO HAVE MEDICAL COMPLICATIONS.
