We learn from the Seerah that the foundations of power must first be established before we can actually take the battlefield. This is the significance of the thirteen years in Makkah, the Hijrah and the first year in Madinah. The foundations of power are freedom, knowledge, values, faith, unity and fraternity, leadership and discipline. A study of the main points made in this paper reveal that the institution of the collective fast of Ramadan makes a significant contribution towards developing and sustaining all those foundations of power, but most of all internal freedom.
