Lesson 1: It is not allowed to pre-empt the fasting of Ramadan by fasting a day or two before it starts out of caution or “to be safe” as some people claim.
Lesson 2: Ramadan begins and ends with the sighting of the new moon of the month – it is not allowed to use calculations and astronomical methods to decide beforehand when Ramadan will begin. Also: Is it a must that we all have a united start to the month?
Lesson 3: Signs that indicate the start of Ramadan and the Moon-sighting.
Lesson 4: Breaking the fast forgetfully, deliberately and sexual relations.
Lesson 5: Fasting whilst on a journey.
