Sahih Bukhari Chapter 31, Hadith No.120
Narrated : Sahl bin Saad Al-Saidi
The Prophet PBUH said, " There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, 'Where are those who used to observe fasts?' They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it."
This hadith shows the importance of fasting in Islam. Allah has made a special gate in paradise called Ar-Raiyan. Whoever observe their fast in this world shall be granted the honour to enter paradise through this gate. Hence, Islam encourage us to fast and observe our fast (by not doing vices).
