DEGREES OF FASTING
1. Jurisprudential Fasting
Refraining from what they must jurisprudentially such as eating, drinking….etc.
2. Ethical Fasting
Here it is refraining not only from what is jurisprudentially mentioned, but they also observe an ethical fasting too. Such noble fasters let their eyes, ears and all other body parts fast against whatever which is regarded in religion as Haram.
3. Mystical Fasting
Detaching oneself from anything that does not remind one of Divinity. It is a state of absolute detachment and total servitude to God. This is called the fasting of Haqiqa (Reality).
