The manners of Fasting yawwww

Ramadan comes with blessings to the Muslims.
1-Eating the Suhoor (the pre-dawn meal)
# The difference between our fasting and the fasting of the people of the book [Jews and Christians] is the taking of Suhoor
# There are blessings in Suhoor, so do not leave it, even with a gulp of water since Allah sends mercy and His angels seek forgiveness for those who take Suhoor

These reports from the Prophet s.a.w leave no room for the believer to miss Suhoor. Therefore let us take it upon us to never miss it.

# Eating Suhoor would be fulfilled by eating a small or large quantity of food, or even just by drinking a sip of water. Even our prophet only eat dates (kurma) as his meal.
# The time for Suhoor is between the middle of the night and dawn. It is considered best to delay it (that is, as close to dawn a possible).

2-Hastening in breaking the fast
# The companions of our prophet would be the first to break the fast and the last to eat their Suhoor
# There are three things are from the manners of the Prophets: Hastening in breaking the fast, delaying the Suhoor, and placing the right hand upon the left in prayer
# Break the fast with dates.if dates are not available, then with water, for water is purifying

3-Supplications while breaking the fast 
# those who gives food for a fasting person to break his fast, he will receive the same reward as him, except that nothing will be reduced from the fasting person's reward. Oh well, i do serve the food to people since im working at KFC =)

4-Refraining from performing any actions that do not befit the fasting 
# Fasting is a type of worship that brings one closer to Allah. It purify the soul and to train it in good deeds. The fasting person must be on guard against any act that may cause him to lose the benefits of his fast.
# Fasting is not just refraining from eating and drinking, but it is also refraining from everything else that Allah has forbidden.
# If one of you is being cursed or annoyed,you should say: "I am fasting, I am fasting."

6-Being generous and studying the Qur'an
as for me; i usually aim to finish the whole Quran in the month of Ramadhan. I try to finish a juzuk; that was about ten pages per day.

7-Praying in the nights of Ramadan
# it was mention by the prophet s.a.w; whoever establishes prayers during the nights of Ramadan faithfully out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards (not for showing off), all his past sins will be forgiven.
# one should pray either eleven or thirteen Rak`ah including Witr
insha'a Allah.
