Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah alihi wa sahbihi edge marine Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome back to a another session of Ramadan FAQs, where every day hamdulillah we try to answer the questions that y'all have. So Mashallah folks have been submitting a ton of questions. And so in sha Allah, to the best of our ability, we're logging on here every day to try to answer the questions that y'all have. So as I do, or I've we've only had one session so far, but insha Allah, I'm going to try as much as possible to separate the questions into different categories.
So the first category is fasting, I figured we would start with questions about fasting, because obviously, that's the most relevant. So some assister asked the question that what is the fit of fasting while breastfeeding, if a woman is worried about milk supply, so if there is a sister who is nursing a baby, right, particularly the mother, obviously, but if there is a woman that is nursing a baby, and she is concerned about the issue of fasting, while she is nursing the baby, and the impact and the effect that that might have on her, and subsequently the baby as well, then for that reason, she is excused from fasting.
She is excused from fasting on that day, but it will fall under the ruling of we're in control murder, Allah suffer it, excuse me, from Ghana, minko Marie's been suffering for the two min a Yemen,
that if you are sick, or you are traveling, then you are allowed to not fast on that day that you were sick, or you're traveling, and you can make up that day after Ramadan is over.
All right, so for that particular reason, um, it would be permissible for that woman for that sister to not fast while she is nursing. And then but what's very important is that she should keep track of how many fasts she was not able to keep. And she will have that number of fasts to make up after the month of Ramadan is over. And once she is capable, she's no longer nursing, for example, and she's now able to keep her fast once again. So that is the ruling and the understanding with that issue. All right.
The next thing, I'm somebody mentioned in the comments, and again, I try to stick to the questions as much as possible. However, sometimes a comment or something will pop up on the feed, and I want to acknowledge it, because I think it's interesting, and it might be beneficial to address it for everyone. So someone mentioned the comment that a lot of times,
you know, there will be a dynamic where someone is not fasting, someone is not fasting, and they are excused from doing so. And other people will sometimes, um, you know, I don't know how to say it, the person mentioned, they will be shamed for not fasting, so someone is sick, or someone is traveling, and due to that reason, they are not fasting, right, and they're completely valid in doing so the Quran says so, okay, but what will happen is that some other people, you know, they'll say that, oh, you know, I fast all the time while I'm traveling. So you don't need to not be fasting. And that's not right. And that's not good. And so it's very important to remember the
When Islam gives us a valid dispensation, a concession, then to each their own, whoever wants to take it can take it, and whoever does not want to take it doesn't have to, but one person cannot necessarily say that what they are doing is better and superior to what the other person is doing. And there's an actual evidence in regards to this. There's a decent body. So during the eighth year of hedgerow, the eighth year of the prophets, Allah
Residents in the city of Medina, he traveled to
Mecca it was of course the conquest of Mecca for Tameka. And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to Mecca.
It was the month of Ramadan. So it's the Prophet somebody some in 10,000 Muslims going to Mecca for the conquest of Makkah, and he was fasting. It was a month of Ramadan. So they started off in the proselytism fasted, the first half of the journey, some Sahaba took the concession, and we're not fasting, intending to make them up afterwards, some looking at the prophets Allah did, some were fasting, and something occurred, some of the companions who were fasting, they started to, you know, a reprimand, if you will, or they started to, you know, kind of get on the case of those who are taking the concession to not fast on those days, they started telling them you know, this hot right
and you shouldn't be fasting and etc, etc. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt that he needed to address this issue, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith bouhanni very famously said, they simply that ability asahiyama is suffering, that fasting while you're traveling, even though you have the excuse to not fast that day and make it up afterwards. But fasting on that day on which you are traveling does not necessarily make you more pious, make you better make you more righteous, then the person who he chooses to take the concession and not fast on that day. So very interestingly, we actually have a statement from the profits a lobbyist that I'm addressing
this issue. Okay, so, I wanted to mention that. Now we have some questions about Zakat in video. Okay, Vidya is once again to just quickly explain the terminology and if you go to the column YouTube channel, you will find there a very lengthy detailed program that we did about preparing for the month of Ramadan Ramadan prep webinar, and in that the very first session is the session I conducted about the fic of fasting, the technicalities, the rules of fasting in the month of Ramadan. So please do go and check that out. It was about a 30 minute session. So it should not be too difficult to go through. But when a person is it either very, very elderly, to where they no
longer possess the physical capability of fasting or they are terminally ill or they are chronically ill, where they just do not have physically the ability to fast and nor will are they expected to have that ability in the future.
Well, Alina UT hola who philia Thomas King then in that case, in that scenario, that person is excused from fasting. That person is excused from fasting. That person, no longer fasts, but instead what they have to do is that they pay for video, what is 50 FPS basically $10 for every day that they are not able to fast $10 for every day that they are not able to fast right so for the whole month of Ramadan, it would be about $300 and that money should go towards feeding those that are in need feeding the poor feeding the hungry. Okay, so that is the ruling. Now, somebody asked a question that my sister is not able to fast due to health conditions so handle on LS find out how to
make it easy. However, she's low income barely earning enough to support her daughter and son that she has to give Vidia for not fasting. ly you can leave a lagoon Epson, Ella was Aha, write the rule is that God does not obligate anyone beyond their capacity. So technically speaking, because this person cannot fast due to health reasons, chronic illness, they don't have to fast they have to give the video but if that person is not have the financial, you know, situation where they can afford to pay the video, then of course they are excused. Then of course they are excused. God does not burden anyone beyond their capacity. And there's also a reference to this as well. There was a Bedouin man
who came to the prophet to lobby some a little bit of a different scenario, but he had violated a fast of Ramadan. He had deliberately broken violated a festival Ramadan. And the prophets Allah when it came to the prophets, a lot of the prophets, a lot of them told him you have to pay a penalty. And one of the options of the penalty is finance, financial, they have to give you have to feed this many 60 Misaki 6460 people in need. And he said, I am maybe the poorest person that I know of. And so then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said then, you know essentially the gist of it was that
Excuse, he ended up giving him some money and said, take it home to your family, and that's fine. So we do have evidence for the fact that if somebody just does not have the finances to pay for it, then you know, of course Allah does not obligate them to do that which they are not capable of doing. Okay.
a question about spirituality. Because every day I want to answer some technical questions. But there are also these questions pertaining to, you know, Ramadan and spirituality. So someone sent in a very lengthy question, but it's very,
it's very interesting. All right, and I wanted to share with someone, I wanted to share it with everyone. This person said that I know that the scholar say that we should push ourselves more in Ramadan, but I feel burned out. There is no environment of spirituality in Ramadan ness, where this person is, I'm the only one that can fasten. I'm a caretaker for my parents. And on top of that, I have to manage the house and go to school, and I'm burned out and exhausted. So hon Allah May Allah make it easier for you.
I'm becoming resentful of have you know, people, talks about like some people who are not helping out and other people who are able to, you know, just go about their lives however they want. It's hard to keep. It's hard to keeping the Ramadan spirit going. When there's no motivation around me. This person mentions that I watched a column and routes, broadcasts and programs, but I still struggle. My bada is cut short, because I'm always needed.
You know, every time this person probably starts to pray, you know, the period the people that they are taking care of need something.
It's hard for me to stand and pray because I'm sleep deprived and can't remember half of what I'm saying in summer. So what my syllabi accepted, and my sinful for being resentful? How can I make the most of Ramadan and have Allah love me, despite my circumstances, a lot more.
first and foremost, right, um, something that this person said jumped out at me. They mentioned that, you know, this person is a caretaker for their parents, and I'm assuming they're elderly, sick parents.
I need you to understand something, um, whoever this person is, that, first and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala. When he talks about our obligations within the Quran, Waka darbuka your Lord had has decreed your Lord has decreed
Allah Abu Illa Yeah. That you never ever worship anyone other than Allah wamena Why did any Asana and that you are good and dutiful and kind and compassionate to your parents.
In my beloved indical Kibera, huduma Aki LACMA for Allah tala of when they reach an elderly age. Both of them are one of them. Do not take off to them.
But Allah Colin Karima say nice things. Well, Fiddler imagina Halima Rama be compassionate and merciful to them care for them well quarter of their honeymoon maka Madam biani cider and make the ion take Allah have mercy on them. Like they had mercy on me when I was small, when I was a baby.
What you are doing,
in terms of caring for your parents, serving them is one of it's an obligation.
And it's one of the most important and remarkable deeds and actions that one can do.
May Allah forgive me if I
maybe speak to brashly in what I'm about to say, and if I'm crossing any kind of a line, but I honestly do not feel like I am.
If there is a person who
prays, you know, five times a day in the masjid, and they pray hundreds of records of no orphan every single day. And they, you know, read, you know, 10 verses of the Quran every day.
And the list goes on and on. Just imagine every kind of act of worship a person could be doing. This is literally maybe the most, you know, busy person with acts of worship that you've ever seen in your life. Okay.
Then this person has people in their lives who need that.
This person he, for example, has people in his life who need him.
He's got elderly parents who can't, you don't get out of bed and get water.
You know, he's got people who desperately
You need him
and he cannot be bothered about that doesn't have time for it not that this person is not able to be there, you know, for whatever the reason No, no, this person just does not have time for this does not want to make time for this. And they're in need. And he can see that and he knows that and he's aware of that.
But he Mashallah is like no, no,
I have to be at the masjid from this hour to this hour. And I gotta be praying this many records and I gotta read this much Koran and therefore, I can't help with that.
This is the part that I was saying that, you know, May Allah forgive me if I'm saying it too strongly. But I am very concerned about this person's spiritual condition. And I'm very, I would not want to be in that person's place when he has to stand before a lot and answer for what he did in his life.
All that Salah, and all that Quran and all that they care and all that.
I'm not here to say that no, no, we should not do any, you know, worship and we should just only be doing you know, service relate No, no,
for either for our obligations or obligations, but what are also the obligations 24434
the next step, you add your to Sunnah, fudger and your witted after Isha.
We're talking about 10 minutes, five times a day.
So that is a total of 15 minutes in a day, an hour in a day.
You know, you throw in an extra 20 minutes or whatever for reading, some are on another 10 minutes, from an hour and a half, to two hours a day at the most even That's a lot. In an hour a day a person can be taking care of all of their obligations.
But for somebody to say no, I'm going to spend another four or five hours in ritual acts of worship, which are good, normally. But I have a lot of obligations and responsibilities. I got people who depend on me, that God told me are my responsibility.
And I'm going to ignore that to be more pious.
That's a contradiction. So I'm digressing. I want to come back to this person's question. What you're doing is amazing.
And Allah subhanaw taala knows your circumstances better than you do.
And Allah subhanaw taala will most definitely accept the worship that you are doing, and will reward you for the service that you are doing. And please, please mark my words. I've seen this in lives of other people, I've experienced things in my own life, that this good that you are doing, will of course, you will be rewarded for it in the life of the hereafter. But you will see the benefit of it here in this life. I'm telling you, you.
So hang in there, stay strong, stay tough. Have a little mercy on yourself from time to time.
And stay strong and know that your Ramadan is amazing. May Allah bless you, may Allah reward you and Allah make it easy for you.
Okay, someone is now some prayer related questions because we always get a lot of questions about Salah when reciting a sutra leading the prayer. Can you repeat the verse two or three times to emphasize it? Yes, you can. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is authentically reported as having done so so yes, you absolutely can.
Someone is asking, Are there any rules surrounding reading only part reading only a part of a surah during the prayer.
There's no real particular rules, some of the scholars and I would recommend this, I'm of the same opinion that some of the scholars have the opinion that you want to recite at the very least one lengthy verse or three small verses. So you really want to recite out to her in each Raka but it can pretty much be from anywhere in the Quran. As far as keeping it in the sequence of the Quran there. That's even not really an obligation. It's, it's good, because you're not confusing yourself or other people by keeping it in sequence. But ultimately, it's not really even obligate obligatory. There's no consequences if you recite something from the 15th Jews in a second. Are you reciting
something from the fifth Jews? There's no consequences to that. Well, luckily,
and Allah knows best.
someone is asking a question about our okay.
Our questions are very, very important. Especially in Ramallah, there's a lot of emphasis, rightfully so bomb making. Do
So someone's asking you a question about making God, how or when should we verbalize the situation? that we're making a six out of four when we're praying to is to hire a doula during, after or before the doula. So ideally, you do it during the day. You can think about it, or even verbalize it. You don't have to verbalize it. You can think about it.
