The economic meaning of Fasting
Fasting is a great school, and in fasting is the full participation of rich and poor, and in fasting a chance to raise faculty of honesty in the feeling of fasting, and the obligatory fasting is raises in the psychology of the fasting faculty of the system. In short words: Fasting is one of the pillars of Islam and its five pillars. It came in the Holy Hadith ((fasting for me and I am dressed in it)) .
On the other hand, it is a sense of fasting that it is a constipation from the lust of the abdomen, in the economic sense: Reduce spending, any rationalization in a more precise sense. In our contemporary life, however, we see a Direct relation between the month of fasting and the gluttony of consumption. One would be surprised by this consumer insatiable widespread in the general public this month without Rationality justification .
Everyone is running toward the cycle of excessive consumption, and preparing for consumption in Ramadan begins early, accompanied by an awesome bale of advertising and marketing festivals that surround the family everywhere And time and through more than one means. The wife presses toward buying more and the boys insist on their consumer demands and one himself has a gluttony condition to buy anything that is expendable and in too much quantities .
Unfortunately, some people are accustomed to some bad habits that are alien to the month of Ramadan, which is the way of consumer spending and is not from Islam.
The contagion of the waste goes to the children and the lack of sense of the value of things grows, so they do not keep their toys or books. As such, it is not a current temporal issue, but a question that extends to the future and that extravagance and luxury are not confined to the family but also to the homeland. The month of Ramadan is being transformed year after year into an occasion for the intensive and steep promotion of various commodities, with the strong contribution of various media, advertising arts and advertising agencies.
