Fasting involves both physical and psychological abstinence. It is required that the individual not only give up food, drink and sexual relations, but that he or she also restrain themselves from all forms of lying, back biting, slander, etc. This is confirmed by the Prophet's (pbuh) statement, "Allah has no need for the hunger and the thirst of the person who does not restrain himself from telling lies and acting on them even while observing the fast."

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i. Allah will not accept his fasting.)" Sahih al-Bukhari 1903
