Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu this Abu Nasir Jenga from column Institute, coming to you once again with a special session of the column hangout 30 days 30 questions about the month of Ramadan? So a question that we got from multiple folks was, can I do here to take off in the last 10 days of Ramadan for less than 10 days? So we had a previous column hangout video about air takeoff, I recommend you go and check it out if you haven't already, where we emphasized and talked about the air tech after soon after profits a lot he somewhere he would observe and take off for the last 10 days and 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. So the question comes up, you know, maybe somebody's got
work or family obligations, whatever the case may be, but they can't do where to go for the full 10 days and 10 nights. So what are they supposed to do if they can only do it take off for maybe a day or two or three, or whatever the case may be? Well, something really interesting about errante calf is that it's a calf has no minimal amount, there is no minimum requirement for air to calf. In fact, really interestingly there are some narrations from the Sahaba. the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the Sahaba the companions may Allah be pleased with him, they say that when we would go to the mosque, even for a few hours, or even for a little while, we would
still make the Nia the intention, prayer and the Gulf and we would intend to be there now teacup because they are ticked off in its essence, is to stay in the masjid, to dedicate that time to Allah to the house of Allah to the remembrance of Allah praying to Allah, making dua to Allah. And that could be for a couple of hours, it could be for a couple of days, or the whole 10 days and nights of the month of Ramadan. So based off of that, there is no minimal requirement for takeoff. So even if you can spare a day or two, you most definitely should take the opportunity to do the takeoff. In fact, there's even a principle that we have in fifth, that when it comes to voluntary knuffel some
actions, then even if you're not able to do it completely, you should at least try to do it partially. So this will fall under that same principle that you can do where I take off for less than 10 days. I will just go ahead and clarify this much that doing the article for the whole 10 days last 10 days and nights of the month of Ramadan. Is that emphasized established some nine tradition of the prophets allottee. So if you end up doing your take off for fewer than 10 days, that's still something that's very recommended. very commendable, very rewarding, inshallah, very beneficial. But it will be something that it will be considered a more optional, more voluntary form
of direct takeoff. So just want to take the opportunity to quickly encourage everyone, follow whatever time you got to take out that time and go do air takeoff in the masjid utilize that time to come closer to a lot better your relationship with Allah spend a lot of time with the Quran and prayer into it they could in good company and inshallah you most definitely benefit during these last 10 days and nights. That's an amazing way to really connect with the last panel with Allah and make the most of your time. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the strength and the ability to do what we need to do during these last 10 days and nights of Ramadan. And may Allah subhanaw taala accept
from all of us. Once again, this has been Nasir Jenga from Columbia Institute. I want to encourage everyone to send in your questions for the column Hangout. You can tweet them to us.
