The Holy month of Ramadan is a month in which Muslims are commanded to fast from dawn till dusk for the full 30 days. The Quran states \"O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you just as it was prescribed for those before you. Perhaps you would attain piety!\" (Quran 2:183) Thus for 30 days, the lifestyles of Muslims around the world change dramatically. But although its core purpose is spiritually based, there are many health and medical benefits and implications of fasting including giving rest to the digestive system, decrease of cholesterol level in blood, and moderate weight loss. This week\'s Islam and Life asks: What are the benefits of fasting?
