Psychological Benefits of Ramadan

Fasting has been found to be an effective treatment for psychological and emotional disorders. It helps a person to firm up his will, cultivate and refine his taste and manners, strengthen his conviction of doing good, avoid controversy, petulance and rashness, which all contribute towards a safe and healthy personality.

There is a peace and tranquility for those who fast during the month of Ramadan.

Psychological Benefits of Ramadan
I am Fasting
Muslims take advice from the Prophet (peace be upon him) who said, "If one slanders you or aggresses against you, say I am fasting." This psychological improvement could be related to better stabilization of blood glucose during fasting as hypoglycemia after eating, aggravates behavior changes.

In fasting time people acquires patience and strong will. Allah has mentioned patience more than seventy times in the Qur’aan and has commanded patience in more than sixteen ways in His Book. So when one fasts, and gives up one’s food and drink, and one’s marital sexual relations for those hours, one learns restraint and patience.

Good Manners
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Whoever does not abandon falsehood in word and action, then Allah (SWT) has no need that he should have his food and drink." (al-Bukhaaree). So we must pay attention to the purification of our manners. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "was sent to perfect good manners."
