He also mentioned that fasting is a deeply spiritual practice that is meant to benefit us in body, mind and heart.
There was good feedback from students who attended this tazkirah session where the students ask to advise on what we can do to fulfil ourselves during Ramadhan month. Dr Uthman mentioned that we were advised to do the sadaqah and the best of sadaqah is given during the month of Ramadan.
