Religion is the key that we well-known as the way to teach people live in an exceptional life. When people committed to different religious traditions come together to discuss common themes, they often find their own practices and understandings enriched
and enlightened. Religion plays the importance role in human’s life in the loving-kindness way and global destiny as well as animal living. In the world’s history there are 3 main monotheistic religion which existed since the first world civilization born such as Judaism, Islamic and Christianity. These three main religion seem very similar to each other because they believe in only one god, they believe their religion’s bible which mean the Judaism believe in Torah while Islamic believe in Quran and Christianity believe in The new and the old testament yet the history of the bible has shown that they came from the same resource in Israel. In addition, Fasting is one of the most ritual in these religion notably Fasting between Judaism and Islamic.

  2. 2. Comparative of Judaism’s Fasting and Islamic’s Fasting Religion is the key that we well-known as the way to teach people live in an exceptional life. When people committed to different religious traditions come together to discuss common themes, they often find their own practices and understandings enriched and enlightened. Religion plays the importance role in human’s life in the loving-kindness way and global destiny as well as animal living. In the world’s history there are 3 main monotheistic religion which existed since the first world civilization born such as Judaism, Islamic and Christianity. These three main religion seem very similar to each other because they believe in only one god, they believe their religion’s bible which mean the Judaism believe in Torah while Islamic believe in Quran and Christianity believe in The new and the old testament yet the history of the bible has shown that they came from the same resource in Israel. In addition, Fasting is one of the most ritual in these religion notably Fasting between Judaism and Islamic. Judaism Fasting has became one of the strangest thing that no any other religion can do. Fasting in Judaism is defined as total cessation from all food and drink. A full-day fast begins with sunset in the evening and continues through darkness of the next day. A minor fast day begins with the dawn and concludes at darkness. Jewish celebrate Fasting two time per year , one in the Yom Kippur festival which is probably the most important festival and holiday for Jewish people. Yom Kippur is the day of Atonement which Jewish people celebrate to pray thru the god to forgive all their mistake in the past time and express their love forward to the god. Judaism people Fast 24 to 25 hours when they see the three star on the sky and the sky become darker and before Fasting Jewish people have to well-prepared. During Fasting, Jewish people will not allow to talk about food or drink because these kind of things may make them do not succeed fasting or make an incomplete fasting and they have to go to the Synagogue where people have known as Judaism church to pray and ask God to forgive them. They also take a nap in the afternoon so that they can save their energy from fasting as well as sniff the spices and they’re not allow to eat the food, take the bath, comb the hair, brush the teeth during they fasting and sexual activity.
  3. 3. Ramadan is an Islamic’s festival when Muslim people Fasting in their life and all Islam people must do in every year that is their duty. So the question is who can Fast in Islamic? In Quran said very clear about the duty of Fast in Muslim world. The children under age of puberty and woman in pregnant and men and women who are too old as well as the sick people will not allow to Fast. However, Fasting will be the duty of Islamic people who old enough (Men Women) must follow up the rule of religion. Therefore, they celebrate Ramadan as well as Fasting which may be 29 or 30 days, depending on the moon’s position. They Fast from the dawn until the sunset which mean they can stop fasting in the night and freely to eat and drink or do something in the family. There are many reason why Islamic do Fasting in every year. Many people said Fasting is the rule of Alloh who is the God of Islamic so all Muslim people must follow that rule. In fact, Islamic people said Fasting makes them feel compassion and empathy towards the poor, because when fasting person tasted the pain of hunger for a while, they remembers those who are in this situation all the time, so they will hasten to do act of kindness to them and compassion to them. So fasting is a means of feeling empathy with the poor. In Conclusion, I think that Fasting is a good way to let people know how hurt and pain for those whom may have no food because of the poverty of life. Judaism and Islamic Fasting seem quite different from each other. Jewish people Fast only 2 days per year and 25 hours per time while Muslim Fast 29 or 30 days per year and start when the dawn until the sunset. Seem Judaism Fasting stricter then Islamic because they’re not allow to eat something, drinking even taking the bath, comb the hair, brush the teeth and sexual activity yet, Islamic can do everything during fasting except eating and drinking only. Another different thing is Jewish people do Fasting because they want the god forgive their fault and remind the mistake in the past time when Islamic do Fasting because they want Muslim people know tasted the pain of hunger feeling to those who don’t have food to eat. But the main point of Fasting is define as going without food or drink in a period of time. As Humanity behavior I should do fasting in every year but my Fasting may different from Islamic and Judaism because those kind of Fasting are too effect for people life. -The End-
