Allah only obligated fasting so that the affluent and the needy are (made) equal by it. That is (because) the affluent is not able to come across the experience of hunger so that he has mercy upon the needy, because every time the affluent wants something, he is able to (get) it. So Allah exalted wanted to equalise between His creation, and to (make) the affluent taste hunger and pain so that he sympathises with the weak and has mercy upon the hungry.
