As-salamu ‘alaykum,

When the door of fasting is opened in the month of Ramadan, the soldiers that carry the lights of divine majesty descend with their chains and restrain the mouths of the lower selves, thereby preventing them from their worldly foods and increasing their yearning for the beauty of the foods of Paradise.

—Shaykh Muhammad al-Qandusi

May Allah bless you all with wonderful days and nights of ibadah and acceptance
