.Who observes Saum (fasting) for one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will draw his face farther from Hell-fire:
Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri [Radi Allahu anhu: May Allah be pleased with him] reported: The Messenger of Allah [Salla Allahu Aleihi Wassalam] said, "Every slave of Allah who observes Saum (fasting) for one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will draw his face farther from Hell-fire to the extent of a distance to be covered in seventy years.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: "Every slave of Allah'' includes men, women, the free and the unfree, because they are slaves of Allah. The Hadith highlights the excellence of fasting for the sake of Allah which will serve, on the Day of Resurrection, as shield against Hell-fire.
