FASTING FOR WOMEN - (It is only required at the New Moon)     

      

    In the original design of creation the menstrual cycles of all women were perfectly synchronized with the timing of the New Moon. It has now been scientifically proven that the average menstrual cycle is 29.1 days. Science has also proven that a Synodic Orbit meaning the time that it takes the moon to fully orbit the earth and return to the same exact position in relation to the earth that it was at the beginning of the previous month is 29.6 days.



LENGTH OF MENSTRUAL CYCLE
However, although a lot of people think that the average length of menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, the number should be nearer to 29.1 days according to a study involving over 30,000 cycles from over 2,300 women. "

   The 12 hour(0.5 day) New Moon Purification Fast which took place at the onset of Menstruation reconciled the 29.1 day cycle with the 29.6 day Synodic Orbit. In the perfected anatomical design the menstrual cycle of all women would occur at 6AM. Therefore on the day of the New Moon at 6AM all menstruating women would head to special huts of separation and would immediately begin a 12 hour Fast that would conclude at 6PM.  As mentioned above the 12 hour Fast(0.5 days ) would bring the menstrual cycle(29.1) days into perfect alignment with the Synodic Orbit(29.6 days). 


  As mankind began to pull away from the orbit of nature the Menstrual cycle of women began to vary as well. However as anatomical Lunar beings Islamic Israelite Women are only obliged to keep the 12 New Moon Fasts(Rosh Chodesh). Since women were created with a purification cycle that by nature connects them to the moon they are not required to fast outside the original Lunar cycle of purification. All other forms of fasting are voluntary and are considered to be a great sign of piety and committment to the Lord.  

 

   Therefore saintly women would often voluntarily adopted fasting beyond what was incumbent upon them. Known as “Fasters” these women were highly valued as potential brides because of their close relationship with the Creator. 

 

                       SURAH 66:5 HOLY KORAN(H.K.)

  'Maybe, his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in your place wives better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, FASTERS, widows and virgins.'

 

  These Fasters remained loyal servants of the Lord throughout their marriages and even into Widowhood.

 

                    LUKE 2:37 NEW TESTAMENT(N.T.)

     'And she was a widow of about 44 years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with FASTINGS and prayers night and day.'

                  PSALMS 35:13 OLD TESTAMENT(O.T.)

                    ' … I humbled my soul with fasting..'



     Fasting is not required until the standard age of puberty known as Baaligh which is 15 years old. However from the age of 8 fasting can be voluntary with the permission of a parent or guardian.
