Fasting and the effect on Shaytan

Fasting and the effect on Shaytan

📚Ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله said:

Fasting degrades and weakens the Shaytaan; it debilitates the effect of his waswaas (whispers) on a person and the sins of him diminish. This is because the Shaytaan “flows through the son of Adam like blood”, so said the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
But fasting narrows the passageways in which the Shaytaan flows, which is why its influence diminishes.

[Majmu’ al-Fatawa, 25/246]
