With all of its numerous blessings, Ramadan wraps everyone in the celestial Holy spirit of doing as many good deeds as they can to get the countless blessings of Almighty. During this time of the year, Muslims around the globe observe fast and abstain from eating and drinking. But would a Muslim break his fast if he is promised a big materialistic prize in return? Let’s find out!
If someone breaks a Ramadan fast without a valid exemption, this entails a penalty of expiation known in Arabic as kaffarah, or “covering over,” such as fasting consecutively for two months, if one is able.
Ramadan gives us a chance to enhance our spirituality and rejuvenate over faith all over again. Through fasting all day, Muslims make sure to restrict themselves from doing such chores that would affect their fast. However, their main concern is to ensure that their roza (fast) remains intact and they do not break it unintentionally.
In a video challenge, a YouTuber stops a Muslim who was fasting. He is promised an iPhone 12 Pro Max in return if he breaks his fast by drinking water. The man blatantly says no and insists that it is haram and she should not ask a Muslim to do that.
As he refuses, an Arabic man passing by is stopped by the YouTube who asks him as well if he is fasting. When she challenges him to drink water and break his fast for an iPhone, the Arabic man was instantly on board. However, the other Muslim guy tries to stop him from doing so.
‘Why are you breaking your fast just for the phone?’
As the Arabic man stays adamant about breaking his fast, the other guy asks for the last time, “Are you really going to break your fast?” While he tries to take a sip of the water, he immediately snatched the bottle from him and spills all the water. “It is haram,” he says.
Seeing the Arabic man even ready to lick the water off the ground, he pushes him. Turns out, the Arabic man was also a part of the prank and was delighted to see the guy’s strong faith. Truly, this is the beauty of Islam wherein the believers do not give in to worldly rewards.

MashAllah! A true believer not only protects himself from sin but also protects other people from sinning.
