Lesson outcome

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. Any reference to verses from the Qur'an mentioned or included within this lesson are sourced from 'Corpus Quran' using the Sahih International translation.
