Christianity and Fasting
We, the followers of Christ, are not commanded to fast, and in this respect fasting in Christianity is not performed at a specific time or according to any special religious commandments, so that we say that this month is a month of fasting or this week is a week of fasting, and We must fast
In the case of Christian fasting, it is necessary to know that it is not performed for the sake of reward and austerity, or to obtain the heart of God and salvation from sin, because by shedding the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross and death and burial and resurrection from the dead, salvation from Sin and the way for man to enter the presence of God have been prepared. So why do we fast and abstain from eating or drinking?
