In this radio interview with the Voice of Islam UK, a London-based initiative of the global Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I discuss the Christian practice of fasting.
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”Matthew 4:4
I interpret Matthew 4, which gives an account of Christ’s fasting and temptation in the desert. I also walk through the early history of fasting and describe contemporary practices.

My segment is from 1hr 5min to 1hr 23min.
Many thanks to the Voice of Islam UK for inviting me to join them, especially at the end of Ramadan. Eid Mubarak!
