Hadith:The Excellence of Observing Saum (Fasting)

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Every slave of Allah who observes Saum (fasting)
for one day for the sake of ALLAH, Subhanahu wa ta'ala,,
Allah will draw his face farther from Hell-fire
to the extent of a distance to be covered in seventy years.''

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
