Question
QUESTION: Isaiah 58:.....

[3] Wherefore have we fasted, say they , and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find your own pleasure, and exact all your labors.
 [4] Behold, ye fast for strife and contention, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye fast not this day so as to make your voice to be heard on high.
 [5] Is such the fast that I have chosen? the day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a rush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to Jehovah?
 [6] Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
 [7] Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Did you not notice His statement....  " Is not [[ THIS THE FAST I HAVE CHOSEN?"]]

Mark 2:18 And Johnís disciples and the Pharisees were fasting: and they come and say unto him, Why do Johnís disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
 19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the sons of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

Christians, Ahmer, have the Bridegroom with them always. Then; they only had Him physically for a time, and then He ascended, but came back in Spirit, to live within their hearts, as He does even to this day.

ANSWER: So Christians do not need to fast !!

hahahahhaa....this you invent new things which GOD never approved of !

So wait and you shall shortly know as the curse of God is upon you and your evil intentions will make you enter hellfire. You shall eat and drink the discharge of the wounds and you will burn forever in hell.

[Quran 6:70] Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world. But proclaim (to them) this (truth): that every soul delivers itself to ruin by its own acts: it will find for itself no protector or intercessor except Allah/God: if it offered every ransom, (or reparation), none will be accepted: such is (the end of) those who deliver themselves to ruin by their own acts: they will have for drink (only) boiling water, and for punishment, one most grievous: for they persisted in rejecting Allah/God.

[Quran 14:17] In gulps will he sip it, but never will he be near swallowing it down his throat: death will come to him from every quarter, yet will he not die: and in front of him will be a chastisement unrelenting.

[Quran 14:18] The parable of those who reject their Lord is that their works are as ashes, on which the wind blows furiously on a tempestuous day: No power have they over aught that they have earned: that is the straying far, far (from the goal).

QUESTION: quote.So Christians do not need to fast !! unquote

Right!  They don't need to is the point Ahmer. You seem to always miss the obvious. Guess that is why He said... " they have eyes to see, but see not!"

But of course bowing down with face to the ground several times a day towards a city, really pleases the Lord? While the heart is lifted up in pride of doing so???  Who is the foolish. Or throwing stones at a rock pillar as it represents Satan?  

Ahmer Satan only has the power a person gives him. And that is when the person believes his lie. When his lie is believed, then he has that person through their own free will. That is why he deceives, and lies so easily, cause the non christian has no way of knowing the truth from the lie. The whole world lies in the power of the wicked one, because they do not have the truth found only in Christ, who IS the TRUTH, the WAY, and the LIFE.

amen.

Answer
we pray because its ordered in the Quran.

[Quran 29:45] Recite (O Prophet Muhammad) what has been revealed to you of the Book (the Quran), and perform As-Salat (5 times prayer). Verily, As-Salat prevents from Al-Fahsha (great sins) and Al-Munkar (disbelief) and the remembering  of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed.And Allah knows what you do.
