Power the night of Qatar what takes place in this night? Firstly, Allah says in the Quran if God was turned in I'll take a phone

00:00:19--> 00:01:03

in Zanna houfy later to cover that rarely listen to Quran down in the Night of Power unite of Gods Well now there are commanded to cover and what will allow you to know what the night of power is. Later to put the light on an elephant shot the night of Night of Power decreed is better than 1000 months. So that is one of the great virtues of Gods of this night. Because whatever you do equates to doing that deed for 1000 months means what if you were to pray that night, you would receive much more reward than a regular day outside of Ramadan and Ramadan because of the reward equates to 1000 months. That's why I said it's better than 1000 months. So that's what's the Muslims are searching

00:01:03--> 00:01:04


00:01:05--> 00:01:13

And the last 10 days of Ramadan, but we can safely say that it is definitely one of the odd nights of Ramadan

00:01:14--> 00:01:34

maybe the 27th maybe the 29th maybe the 23rd maybe the 25th maybe the 21st Okay, so that's what the latest color is and as I mentioned, you will find in the mosques on that night it will be packed outside of it being packed regularly in Ramadan in the nights of Ramadan.

00:01:35--> 00:01:35


00:01:36--> 00:01:39

what did we say was

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

late we said that the nighttime prayer in the nighttime,

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

the nighttime, what kinds of prayers are there?

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

Firstly, the nighttime spins from when to when

00:01:57--> 00:02:08

after Isha to Fudger that's the night time so it's virtuous to pray in that time. And then we said that there's different kinds of prayers when you come in. What's one of the night prayers What's the last part of the day?

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

Isha Very good. You have Isha Isha salah. Then after that and Ramadan you'll have something called

00:02:20--> 00:02:26

right Tara we that's the one that you'll find a lot of Muslims praying like eight

00:02:28--> 00:02:44

units right? Or 10 Or excuse me 20 Right. So that's what that's what is distinguished Ramadan is distinguished by that on a generic level. When you walk into a mosque they're praying Isha. Then after that you're gonna see a lot person you got to walk in the mosque. See why a lot of Muslims here freesia. Oh, yeah, it's Ramadan. They're praying.

00:02:46--> 00:02:52

Right? So after Isha the wait maybe like five minutes, 10 minutes and then they'll get up and then they'll start praying.

00:02:53--> 00:02:59

You won't know you just know that they're praying a shot that people are doing their prayers, then the Imam itself Allahu Akbar.

00:03:00--> 00:03:21

He made mentioned some logistical you know, House House duties or whatever for the mosque, whatever. New administrative, make it up and say just remember your parking don't don't park here, your shoes, you know, your children, make sure your children are with you and all that kind of stuff. Then the amount would just go up and say aloha, when they'll start praying. That is totally rare. Right? That's only in Ramadan. After that,

00:03:22--> 00:03:33

that's when you know, the pray. The Witcher prayer in The Witcher we said is you know, an optional odd number of rockets. Whoever was what a rocket is.

00:03:35--> 00:03:40

A unit of prayer a unit of prayer is what to what?

that's a record that's a record

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

for standing position all the way down.

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

Okay, so that's the record

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

alright. So, that was just one record right?

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

That is one and odd or even number

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

odd, odd in Arabic means what?

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

So he said would you in the Isha prayer.

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

First is what you have are inside the night prayer you have Isha. Then you have what

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

do you have what? Witter? Very good

00:12:27--> 00:12:31

right, Tara we can be whatever even number and what's yours

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

after every two you decided to last

00:12:43--> 00:12:43


00:12:46--> 00:12:47

for restaurants?

00:12:49--> 00:12:50


00:12:54--> 00:12:56

the Tawi it's in Paris always in Paris.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

You can do more than that.

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

Every time you finish one, you have to

00:13:11--> 00:13:28

know well for total, we it's paired. So if you do two rockets, then two rockets, then two rockets, then two rockets then to our cones. Right? So that'd be 246-810-1214 1618 20. And a typical mask, you'll see them do this much.

00:13:29--> 00:13:37

Right? And then they'll end it off. With most of the times they'll ended off with three rockets here.

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

With me

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

now, they could have just done one if they wanted to.

00:13:49--> 00:13:54

If they wanted to do one, just what I did. After they do those 20 they could just do just what I did.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

Right? Or what you'll find them most of them I still do.

00:14:02--> 00:14:08

They will offer three. So they'll come up. I'll do my first one come up. I just came up. Do it again.

00:14:09--> 00:14:13

That after my second prostration stay in the kneeling position.

00:14:14--> 00:14:16

Right and

00:14:18--> 00:14:34

right. And then and then do Sir Alec Rahmatullah Sacramento, then come back up and do one more. Sometimes. I know, it seems kind of confusing. Some will just come up. They won't sit in the kneeling position. After the second one, they'll just come right back up and finish with three.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37


00:14:38--> 00:14:38

you got me?

00:14:39--> 00:14:44

Right. So you could technically say sometimes it's just like they just do one because they added

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

but just in any case, no, that journal do you like 20 And then they'll do an odd number after. You don't have to stay for all 20 Like I said, there'll be some Muslims, they'll come to the masjid and they'll join the congregation of 20 but then

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

They will leave after 2468 They'll leave after this.

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

They'll leave they won't finish the rest majority of the congregation will leave after this.

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

You're gonna see a lot of you leave. You're gonna

00:15:14--> 00:15:15

it's totally fine. All right.

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

You got me? You understand?

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

Okay. So that is all of that is included within the night prayer.

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

Right? What up? What else do we say about winter?

00:15:31--> 00:15:31


00:15:33--> 00:15:34

now to fix this

00:15:36--> 00:15:36


00:15:40--> 00:15:41

yeah, what else do we see what the nightmare

00:15:47--> 00:15:47

Oh, I'm listening.

00:15:49--> 00:15:49

I'm listening

00:15:56--> 00:15:56


00:16:01--> 00:16:03

What else do we say about winter?

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

That winter should be the last prayer of the night.

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

It should be the last prayer of the night.

00:16:13--> 00:16:20

So before you go to sleep is when you want to pray with her. So you'll find people they'll pray eight. But then you'll ask yourself, why didn't they pray what?

00:16:22--> 00:16:32

Witter? Because there probably is some stuff to do you want to go eat or something like that. So they'll wait till they finish all their responsibilities, and then they will pray with you before they go to sleep.

00:16:33--> 00:16:34


00:16:35--> 00:16:43

Everyone with me? Yes. All right. So that's the night prayer. That's generally what you're going to see in Ramadan. When I talked about

00:16:45--> 00:16:46

later to God,

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

the Night of Power.

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

It's going to be packed.

00:16:52--> 00:17:05

Number one, the last 10 days as well. are some specific things that happen and last thing is I don't think I've covered this, but the last 10 days. Who knows what takes place in the last 10 days?

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

Any or any

00:17:17--> 00:17:22

woman don't like to me yesterday. Ah, okay. I'm 42. Right. 43. All right.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

There was a movie that we used to watch.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

It's called Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

Man, I'm that old.

00:17:33--> 00:17:33

Tell me about

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

Ferris Bueller ditch school and the whole movies about him skipping school.

00:17:43--> 00:17:43


00:17:45--> 00:17:46

All right.

00:17:47--> 00:17:55

So the first thing that will take place in last 10 days is what the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him used to stay in the mosque.

00:17:57--> 00:18:11

He used to have a spiritual retreat, if you will, in the mosque. He would not leave the mosque. So he would sleep wake up live sleep, right 10 Nights. So it's spiritual

00:18:14--> 00:18:15


00:18:18--> 00:18:19

That's the first thing

00:18:23--> 00:18:54

so that those 10 days of processing would not leave the mosque he would pray. And the purpose of this is to have undivided attention and kind of turn into for lack of better words, Monk status, right? To totally detach himself. Right and to have his undivided attention in prayer research from the Quran, vicar. And a lot of times you know, when you make it's called it decaf and you make this spiritual retreat. It really cleanses the soul why? How many of you have heard about meditation nowadays that they speak a lot about meditation? Right?

00:18:56--> 00:18:57


00:18:59--> 00:19:03

that is all a part of this whole program.

00:19:04--> 00:19:15

Right? If you're sitting in the mosque and you're just thinking about life, you're concentrating you're pondering right? That's huge. That is your meditation you get there's no distractions

00:19:16--> 00:19:30

right there's no I gotta hustle go here and get there get there as soon as you get there you know hustle and bustle right with that is a huge been I've made I've made this spiritual retreat numerous times. It's it's very very replenishing for the soul.

00:19:31--> 00:19:57

With this I would advise if you plan to do it, don't go to it because some people go a spiritual retreat. But it's like a camp retreat. Like you're hanging out with all your friends. You're talking you know, you may talk about oh, yeah, back when I wasn't Muslim man. Man, Man throw a couple of stuck for laws in their mail. I forgive some a lot for yours. Yeah, right y'all eat hang out chill. You know get on your YouTube. Look at this guy's doing this live. Check this out.

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

Right now.

00:20:00--> 00:20:00


00:20:02--> 00:20:02


00:20:03--> 00:20:07

Oh, he had you know, he had the new Iftar food homework

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

none of that right? You don't want to do any of that.

00:20:20--> 00:20:25

For the last 10 days, it's preferable to go to a mosque that no one knows you

00:20:28--> 00:20:41

no one knows you. Right? You want to go to a place where no one knows because you don't want any distractions. That's the whole purpose of it of Attica. Now, does it have to be 10 days? No, it could be one day two days three days the whole purpose is to have this

00:20:43--> 00:20:51

take place for your mind body and soul. Right. Another thing is on this night you will find that they will have

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

the last

00:20:57--> 00:20:58


00:20:59--> 00:21:00


00:21:03--> 00:21:05

you know I mentioned totally

00:21:06--> 00:21:14

right? There will be internal way roughly let's say Isha is at 10 o'clock, right? Let's say Isha comes in. Or the congregation prays at 10pm

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

Tada, we will come in you know Isha. How long is Isha last?

00:21:25--> 00:21:26


00:21:27--> 00:21:40

Zack is like, No, we caught that we come to you. It's okay. That no, we gotta get you right. Tax like, I'm in my zone too much with a lot that time. So I don't really know, an hour, 10 minutes. Let's you know, as long as you're with the law.

00:21:43--> 00:22:03

My man Zack. He says about like, he says maybe like 10 minutes. So let's say 10:15pm Tonight we'll start taraweeh is roughly let's say about 3035 40 minutes. Right? So that'd be what it'll end at like, what?

00:22:06--> 00:22:23

245 Okay, then if you want to pray with or not, that's if you pray. 20 I'm saying. But if you prayed maybe like a it may end at like, what 1025 That's a 1020. Right? If you prayed eight, if you prayed 20 But you

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

the last third of the night will come in probably around

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

1am doughnut, I'm sorry, 3am.

00:22:37--> 00:23:21

So you will find that people will come back here at 3am I to pray in congregation. Now these prayers will be slightly different, they'll recite a little longer, they'll be in a long prostration long to do because this is the this is like the time, the golden time. The last sort of the night is the best time to pray outside of the congregational five prayers. So you really want to be spiritually energized and totally connected with Allah. Like you don't want any distractions. This is the time you ask Allah for your your sick mother, your sick father, your sick relatives, things that you would ask for in other times, but this time and his record is gonna be a long record. It's the

00:23:21--> 00:23:25

sooner you know this in this prayer that they should be in the longer record along to do

00:23:27--> 00:23:48

right. And that's you ask Allah, you know, cry out to Him. That is the time three and so that'll last roughly about maybe 30 minutes. How many rock cuts do they pray may pray for it doesn't matter. It's not a certain number. Okay? Then right after that, you'll have maybe about an hour or so. And that is when they will have the fajr prayer because furniture is going to come in right guys.

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

So, that is another distinguishing factor for the last 10 days

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

that you will have this

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

you will have a you know these three things.

00:24:03--> 00:24:07

Now, it's optional for you to do this. All these are optional except Except project.

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

So that is something that you'll follow. The last thing is within these last 10 days, remember,

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

you're going to be looking for what

00:24:17--> 00:24:24

later to cover the Night of Power. Right. That's what you're going to be searching for. Anyone have any questions so far?

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

Any questions?

00:24:30--> 00:24:31


00:24:37--> 00:24:38

Yes, yes.

00:24:47--> 00:24:52

That's the last third of the night. Because the last third of the night is one of the most sorry.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

You could pray any time of the night. But this is the most virtuous time of the night to

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Free is the last third of the night. Who remembers what they call this you have to worry about the Arabic name, but some of you may have heard it.

00:25:06--> 00:25:06

Who remembers

00:25:10--> 00:25:13

the prayer that is in the last third of the night

00:25:25--> 00:25:27

heard you before

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

to help you.

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

So to HUD, June is the best prayer after the five obligatory prayers

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

any day of the week, any night of the week?

00:25:49--> 00:25:49

You don't have to.

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

Do you want

00:25:55--> 00:26:03

you can do it any day of the year. Doesn't have to be three in I'll just give an example. It's the last third of the night. So if you were to look at Asia, it's 10pm.

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

Right? I'll

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

hold on hold on a sec. Oh.

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

If you attend at 10pm is when Aisha comes in, right?

00:26:17--> 00:26:25

Right. I'm not going to trick you. She's like 10pm, then you have Fajr comes in at 5am.

00:26:26--> 00:26:35

So just be 1011 12 12345. Let's say six, let's say six, as they say come to 16. So that's eight

00:26:36--> 00:26:42

hours, you just try to divide it into thirds. And then take the last three. That's it. Okay.

00:26:43--> 00:26:48

Yeah, it only why? Why do you send it? Why are we saying 10 days? Because what you're searching for what?

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

You're searching for that?

00:26:57--> 00:27:07

Five days? Of course, you could do one. If you don't do any, it's fine. It's just if you like, let's say, just happens to be

00:27:12--> 00:27:13


00:27:14--> 00:27:34

Right. So if you had like, for instance, you have to attend school, something you could choose your days. Okay, I'm going to choose the odd days. The odd nights, right? That's what I would do. If I were you know, just make sure you choose an odd night. If you'd only have one night, then I'd say okay, it's 27th night is one of them and make I'm gonna make sure to be here, around whenever they do at 3am 2am 4am Doesn't matter.

00:27:36--> 00:27:42

It doesn't have to be at the mosque. It's even better if it's at home by yourself. That's the best situation.

00:27:44--> 00:27:53

Just remember this. The best prayers are the prayers that are offered by yourself except the congregation except the fibers.

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

Remember that as a general rule?

00:27:57--> 00:28:02

Right. The five prayers it's best to offer them in congregation at the mosque

00:28:04--> 00:28:12

in general for for the men in general for the men. Right. Other than that, it's better to pray by yourself.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

Inshallah. Tada.

00:28:17--> 00:28:17

Everyone got that?

00:28:19--> 00:28:22

having some technical difficulties.

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

But it's all good in the neighborhood.

00:28:27--> 00:28:27

All right.

00:28:29--> 00:28:30

Say again?

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

Yes, they're going through for some reason don't know.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

You should be. That's what he's been doing.

00:28:43--> 00:28:50

I think it's, yeah, I think it's, uh oh, Ibrahim. I think it may be something with the connection on the the

00:28:51--> 00:28:52


00:28:54--> 00:28:54

did it

00:28:57--> 00:28:58

so it's not

00:29:00--> 00:29:04

chrome casting. Okay, where's the chrome casting? Where's the?

00:29:15--> 00:29:16


00:29:19--> 00:29:20

does the

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

duplicating connect to a wireless display?

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

Does a

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

what is this EB 4308.

00:29:37--> 00:29:47

And there's a Samsung six TV series. I don't know if it's that there was an EB four. Does that have its own internet connection, that project? That's the EB four.

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

Okay, can you turn it on real quick? Is it on?

00:29:51--> 00:29:54

If I press the button, it'll come on. Can you turn the TV on?

00:29:56--> 00:29:56

All right.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

So we're talking about these last 10 days.

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

All right, let me connect

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

says connecting to it

00:30:27--> 00:30:30

signal says connecting

00:30:32--> 00:30:54

alright so when we talking about these last 10 days those those are what those are the virtuous actions of the last 10 days is to be involved in the masjid as much as possible right and to try to pray the night prayers as much as possible you know within yourself it doesn't it doesn't have to be prayer it could be reading Quran can be calling up relatives that you haven't talked to in a long time. It could just be trying to do general good deeds and that's the that's what the prophet

00:30:56--> 00:31:00

is what I've said about him. Okay, so after we reach the last 10 days

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

we have we have

00:31:06--> 00:31:20

Alright, before I do that I just want to do a brief review a brief review because I don't want to seem as you've wasted your time these past couple of weeks that y'all come here right what day What month is Ramadan? It's the blank month

00:31:22--> 00:31:27

night very good oh I don't know if we covered this what is Ramadan mean

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

to me

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

what's really odd about that question? I was on Instagram

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

think that question

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

Ramadan means

00:32:05--> 00:32:05

some would say

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

heat or to burn

00:32:10--> 00:32:12

was like empowered

00:32:14--> 00:32:23

heat or to burn and the connection with that is it is a month in which the sins are burned away right

00:32:24--> 00:32:28

so your sense that you have Ramadan as an opportunity to where they will be

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

burned away

00:32:31--> 00:32:37

so that's that's where the the meaning of Ramadan so he said it's the ninth month of the year how do we determine the entrance of Ramadan?

00:32:46--> 00:32:46


00:32:47--> 00:32:49

by the moon and what do we call that

00:32:50--> 00:33:03

question and that's called that what system is that called using the lunar calendar right so if you want to tell someone that's not Muslim How do you start what starts you know we go by missiles we follow the lunar calendar

00:33:04--> 00:33:08

they understand that you say well that's by the sighting of the moon determines the beginning of the

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

beginning of the Ramadan or the beginning of the

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

fast Yeah.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

The beginning of the month

00:33:24--> 00:33:24


00:33:29--> 00:33:31

or the beginning of the month.

00:33:34--> 00:33:41

So in the middle of the way you can tell the middle of the month on a lunar calendar is if you see a full moon outside

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

that's where you can determine the

00:33:47--> 00:33:51

middle of the month is if it's a full moon outside. Okay.

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

When does the fast start?

00:33:59--> 00:33:59

And you see

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

that you know

00:34:07--> 00:34:12

the word right now you're praying the next day, the next morning after?

00:34:13--> 00:34:22

What you're fasting the next morning? Yeah. So Margaret comes in right now. We will go outside if we see the crescent moon we know that that's the beginning of Ramadan. So the next morning

00:34:23--> 00:34:28

is when we fast but when do you start your fast next morning is too vague. Abdullah wait Give me morning. Come on, man.

00:34:33--> 00:34:36

Is there a difference between Dawn and sunrise? We talked about this.

00:34:41--> 00:34:41

You're looking at

00:34:43--> 00:34:43


00:34:46--> 00:34:49

When there's when there is a right when there is a horizontal Twilight.

00:34:51--> 00:34:55

So basically on a prayer app, does anyone have a prayer schedule app?

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

What you will see sometimes is you will see Fajr for instance, it'll say Fajr.

00:35:14--> 00:35:16

711 Oh,

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

oh yeah, okay. Yes.

00:35:21--> 00:35:27

Yes, so Exactly. So when does furniture come in? Now? This is a great question. So when do you start fasting 602 or 711?

00:35:33--> 00:35:34


00:35:39--> 00:35:41

602 is managed to start fasting.

00:35:43--> 00:35:47

So when Frederick that's when Frederick comes in so at 603 You can do what

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

so sorry.

00:35:55--> 00:35:57

Exactly. You can even pray if you want.

00:35:58--> 00:36:06

Right? The best time to pray is as soon as it comes in. Just decide no. Okay, so 603 is when you should start fasting. Okay, when does Mulgrew come in?

00:36:16--> 00:36:19

750 So when should you break your fast?

00:36:22--> 00:36:32

750. Right. So you break your fast as soon as Maghrib comes in. What can you do after that when you break your fast that you couldn't do while you're fasting?

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

Yeah, you can eat, drink and be intimate. Right?

00:36:41--> 00:36:52

Those are the three things that you can do that you couldn't do from fasting. All right, what if you were to eat drink? Or be if you were to eat or drink? And you forgot?

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

It was 1207 and 53 seconds

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

Oh, you forgot your anniversary? Like

00:37:04--> 00:37:06

I forgot. I remember

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

that you have to make that data. Okay.

00:37:16--> 00:37:16

Anyone else

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

like it was just an honest

00:37:28--> 00:37:37

an honest mistake, you know about us as people. I used to be friends. When I was in hospitals. It was an honest mistake. I'm like so what's a dishonest mistake?

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

Yeah, sorry, was a dishonest mistake. I

00:37:45--> 00:37:50

I really, I really meant to make the mistake but I wanted to like and like oh, that's what a dishonest mistake is okay.

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

Right. So if you forgot

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

and you ate or drank what

00:38:00--> 00:38:01

you keep fasting. Are you sure

00:38:04--> 00:38:04

if it was

00:38:12--> 00:38:13


00:38:26--> 00:38:27

do you have to make it up though?

00:38:35--> 00:38:38

She was like, what she said yes. Yes. No.

00:38:45--> 00:38:49

So no, no, you don't have to make it up. You don't? If you forgot.

00:38:51--> 00:38:56

If you forgot, during the day and you ate or drank you don't have to make it up.

00:38:57--> 00:38:58


00:38:59--> 00:39:05

All right. Everyone with me because we're about to go over the what's important. We had this little chart there. It's important.

00:39:07--> 00:39:10

Someone traveling do they have to fast?

00:39:11--> 00:39:13

They don't have to fast do they have to make it up?

00:39:15--> 00:39:21

Okay. Someone that has a mild sickness. Do they have to fast?

00:39:24--> 00:39:25

Do they have to make it up?

00:39:27--> 00:39:33

Someone that has dialysis, you know dialysis is go through dialysis. Do they have to fast?

00:39:34--> 00:39:37

Do they have to make it up? What do they have to do?

00:39:42--> 00:39:46

Or go to a homeless person or less important person?

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

Which one?

00:39:51--> 00:39:56

Yeah, poor person. Right. Okay. For every day

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

They cannot fast okay

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

what did they feed them? Snickers bar

00:40:09--> 00:40:09


00:40:11--> 00:40:12

I didn't I didn't hear you

00:40:15--> 00:40:24

whatever their means are roughly it should be that which is generically speaking for nowadays around eight to $10 meal

00:40:26--> 00:40:26

all right

00:40:29--> 00:40:33

one person per day missed Yeah. Or or

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

So good question Yeah

00:40:40--> 00:40:45

or or you could feed 30 people at one time

00:40:50--> 00:40:51

no no for for

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

30 people

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

yeah ego

00:41:00--> 00:41:15

one gathering can invite them all over your house, you know? So that's another option. So all right, an elderly man or woman that has been advised not too fast by a physician or two or three or more

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

does he or she have to fast?

00:41:20--> 00:41:21

Know why

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

detrimental to their health says the nurse

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

Right? Exactly. They don't have to. So think about it like this.

00:41:34--> 00:41:48

Do they take the characteristic of the sick person as a sick person take the characteristic of the elderly they both have a characteristic that if they were too fast, it could be detrimental to their health. Which brings us to the last category

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

What's your son's name? I forgot his name.

00:41:54--> 00:41:54


00:41:55--> 00:41:57

was Jackson How you doing?

00:41:58--> 00:42:02

Or actually don't like you? Because you're the reason why

00:42:04--> 00:42:08

can you give us a drumroll Jackson let's get a drumroll please please Jackson

00:42:12--> 00:42:14

just one drum roll Jackson for the grant

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

All right my man Jackson my man that's okay. We still love you Jackson

00:42:24--> 00:42:24

All right.

00:42:26--> 00:42:31

The pregnant woman that does not fear for herself

00:42:33--> 00:42:34

and she passed

00:42:41--> 00:42:44

she doesn't fear that if I fast is going to detrimental to my health

00:42:47--> 00:42:54

she confessed okay the pregnant the nursing woman that does not fear for her child

00:42:58--> 00:43:01

can she fast should she fast

00:43:06--> 00:43:09

oh the person who has access to it so you bring it

00:43:11--> 00:43:17

up personal choice Oh very good question yeah it's her judgment right

00:43:21--> 00:43:22

mother of

00:43:23--> 00:43:23


00:43:27--> 00:43:29

nutrients and that

00:43:31--> 00:43:35

which leads me to the next question if she fears for herself and her and her child

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

she has to make it up and some you'll find some say make it up and feed for a poor

00:43:47--> 00:43:48


00:43:50--> 00:43:58

got me is Everyone with me? Yes. They making up your fast how much time do you have

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

I used to be a kid like I want to run I don't want to sit down I

00:44:10--> 00:44:11

want to run there's no bad

00:44:13--> 00:44:13

what was that?

00:44:15--> 00:44:20

Between the Ramadan between the Ramadan is very good. Very good. Okay. So

00:44:29--> 00:44:32

yes and no. So

00:44:33--> 00:44:34

you have to answer that question.

00:44:36--> 00:44:37


00:44:38--> 00:44:40

Very good. Yes.

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

Outside of Ramadan, there are some optional days to fast.

00:44:47--> 00:44:47


00:44:48--> 00:44:49

Those days are

00:44:54--> 00:44:56

those days are those days are

00:44:59--> 00:44:59


00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Thursdays and what are the days

00:45:03--> 00:45:07

before the day and why why the 13th 14th and 15th

00:45:15--> 00:45:17

Why very good

00:45:18--> 00:45:21

What are white days? Whoa very mad we said that

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

we got to clarify

00:45:30--> 00:45:41

the days of the white moon memorize said that the moon is full it's a full moon in the middle of the month the lunar calendar don't make the mistake January 6 Man's

00:45:42--> 00:45:50

you know know the days of the white moon so basically the White Moon has surpassed us maybe by a week because we're like a week away from Ramadan. Right?

00:45:52--> 00:45:59

Right. So the days of the white moon is another day to fast as well. All right, so

00:46:02--> 00:46:04

you know when there's a full moon it's white

00:46:06--> 00:46:14

because in Arabic is a MLB because when the moon is radiant when it's white it's like very radiant. I mean the moon does not

00:46:17--> 00:46:29

yet know says no, no seriously Yeah. You don't realize it Have you ever like woken up in the middle of the night and it's not dark? I mean if you've thought about that you go out it's not dark if you go outside you can see that's because of the moon

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

know there's snow on the ground for example.

00:46:36--> 00:46:37

The storm

00:46:38--> 00:46:41

looks so light out Oh that's true. Yeah.

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

What's exactly

00:46:45--> 00:46:48

you don't even think about it like you wake up at two or three in the morning right?

00:46:49--> 00:46:54

You would think it's dark outside but it's not I'm talking about outside the streetlights you know

00:46:59--> 00:47:00


00:47:04--> 00:47:08

yeah no streetlights if you if you a certain part of the night if it's a full moon

00:47:09--> 00:47:13

it will be radiant. I mean you will look into the sky and it'll you know you'll see the moon

00:47:14--> 00:47:21

yes right so that's that's that's so the 13th 14th and 15th is also a good day

00:47:22--> 00:47:28

to fast outside of outside of Ramadan and there's also another time who knows

00:47:37--> 00:47:38


00:47:40--> 00:47:41

you're like there you're close

00:47:45--> 00:47:45

to be

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

after this month

00:47:51--> 00:47:52

how many days

00:48:06--> 00:48:07


00:48:10--> 00:48:18

the price and that's the month of shanwa that is the month called Chawan show Wow. This is the month after Ramadan

00:48:20--> 00:48:24

it's called show while so this is the 10th month

00:48:37--> 00:48:38

very good question.

00:48:39--> 00:48:42

Are those six days immediately after Ramadan

00:48:45--> 00:48:47

it's best to do them

00:48:50--> 00:48:54

let's say it's best let's just say it has to be six days with inshallah

00:48:55--> 00:49:00

some would prefer that it's immediate six days six consecutive days after show ah.

00:49:01--> 00:49:02


00:49:03--> 00:49:10

it doesn't necessarily have to be six days after show and the most important thing is that it is in the month of edge

00:49:11--> 00:49:16

show while right? What if you didn't What's the question that we're going to ask?

00:49:18--> 00:49:20

I can I know that you're going to ask me

00:49:21--> 00:49:22


00:49:25--> 00:49:26

Why don't we just talk about

00:49:30--> 00:49:31


00:49:38--> 00:49:40

Don't believe everything that you hear

00:49:44--> 00:49:45

you don't have

00:49:47--> 00:49:50

love Exactly. Tell them tell them Zach. Keep going.

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

Like tell him because uh yeah

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

I think it's worrying so if you need it to make the most

00:50:06--> 00:50:09

man it was almost the way I was

00:50:11--> 00:50:16

he was like okay the days you haven't made up are obligatory so

00:50:21--> 00:50:21

was that

00:50:25--> 00:50:25

can you

00:50:30--> 00:50:30

give us

00:50:31--> 00:50:33

from your past experiences

00:50:37--> 00:50:37

about this

00:50:41--> 00:50:44

gotta move the chin keep the head still but just move the chin

00:50:45--> 00:50:46

that's creepy

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

okay, I don't know what to do

00:50:56--> 00:50:56


00:50:57--> 00:50:59

if I was to tell you

00:51:11--> 00:51:11

let's say

00:51:15--> 00:51:22

oh I need you to come to Valley Ranch Masjid tomorrow

00:51:23--> 00:51:23


00:51:26--> 00:51:28

my $20

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

You can come

00:51:34--> 00:51:35


00:51:37--> 00:51:42

with I need you to come to evaluate Masjid tomorrow with my $20

00:51:43--> 00:51:45

I need you to come to basket when

00:51:46--> 00:51:46

with what

00:51:48--> 00:51:52

okay when I say you can also you can also if you want

00:51:54--> 00:51:56

come any other day of the week

00:51:58--> 00:52:00

with my

00:52:02--> 00:52:03

my mask

00:52:05--> 00:52:05


00:52:06--> 00:52:09

bear with me. Which one is a must

00:52:12--> 00:52:12


00:52:14--> 00:52:15

and which one is up to you?

00:52:17--> 00:52:17


00:52:23--> 00:52:23

they're with me

00:52:26--> 00:52:30

What if you came tomorrow with my mask? What did you just do?

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

No, just the mask

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

Did you do what I gave you an option to do?

00:52:42--> 00:52:44

What I gave you an option to do

00:52:45--> 00:52:50

the automatic question again. Did you fulfill the option

00:52:52--> 00:53:05

to build the option but did you fulfill the request the obligatory request? No. So you prefer the option over your responsibility right

00:53:06--> 00:53:12

so let's look at in this situation now beyond just know what I just said. Okay, now let that sink in.

00:53:13--> 00:53:14


00:53:18--> 00:53:24

Okay, now what did we talk about with the six days of Shiva? Is it an option

00:53:26--> 00:53:28

making up Ramadan? Is it an option

00:53:31--> 00:53:33

making up the days you missed in Ramadan

00:53:36--> 00:53:39

it's not an option. So which one should be what

00:53:43--> 00:53:45

which ones should be

00:53:47--> 00:53:49

it should be performed first or fulfilled first.

00:53:51--> 00:53:52

My $20

00:53:55--> 00:53:58

tomorrow or else right

00:53:59--> 00:54:05

all right so Ramadan is my $20 Tomorrow show while the 60s is show out is what

00:54:07--> 00:54:09

the mask any day you want to this month

00:54:11--> 00:54:12

the answer the question

00:54:26--> 00:54:27

as soon as you can

00:54:29--> 00:54:34

but then show up it's like you can do it on another occasion.

00:54:36--> 00:54:36

When you mean occasion

00:54:39--> 00:54:40


00:54:42--> 00:54:48

So there's no need to double dip basically economic no need to double dip. No.

00:54:51--> 00:54:52

I'm also adding this to my balance.

00:54:54--> 00:55:00

Like the word balance Yeah. Yeah, it's a good net but but but I'm now now now that

00:55:00--> 00:55:00

I said all that

00:55:02--> 00:55:03

I'm about to hit you with something you already

00:55:06--> 00:55:08

have all this is knowledge. Right?

00:55:09--> 00:55:14

And are you ready? Okay. This is just one opinion.

00:55:16--> 00:55:23

I gave it to you this way so you can understand because when you face certain Muslims, they may tell you something. And it's good for you to just say, Okay, thank you.

00:55:24--> 00:55:39

But you have knowledge now because you know, that's an opinion. And you understand the logic behind it, right? Because I give you the money, everybody. Money. Money. Everybody's gonna stand with money. Money Talks. Tomorrow, Zack tomorrow, man. I shouldn't have told them. Okay, well.

00:55:43--> 00:55:45

It's in front, everybody, man. I'm the teacher.

00:55:46--> 00:55:47

All right.

00:55:51--> 00:55:56

Some people would say, Okay, if I want to, I guess I'll use the same analogy.

00:55:57--> 00:55:58


00:55:59--> 00:56:00

20 yards is okay, man.

00:56:02--> 00:56:03

Since you're a nice guy.

00:56:05--> 00:56:15

Just the remainder, the as long as he doesn't reach this month, again, the remainder of the year. Just pay me $20 Bro, because you know, taxes and I gotta get my money. I want to, you know, I want to buy this new.

00:56:16--> 00:56:20

He's looking through that me myself. When I said he said buy this new one.

00:56:22--> 00:56:34

Right. So in that, in that analogy, it is as though Allah is saying, Look, you have the remainder of the year to make it up that obligatory day. And because I am otter, man, merciful, not me. But Allah.

00:56:36--> 00:56:40

I will leave you to make it up the rest. So you have 11 months.

00:56:41--> 00:56:44

Show while is one month take advantage of this show. Well, man

00:56:48--> 00:56:49


00:56:50--> 00:56:51

Okay. Oh.

00:56:53--> 00:56:55

The last type of person

00:56:59--> 00:57:06

the individual on their vacation the woman that's on her vacation. Great. Those days. Can you fast?

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

The vacation?

00:57:15--> 00:57:19

That which is that which happens with women and doesn't happen with men a certain time?

00:57:23--> 00:57:23


00:57:25--> 00:57:25


00:57:26--> 00:57:29

Can women fast on that day? Or those days?

00:57:30--> 00:57:31


00:57:32--> 00:57:36

Not allowed to fast. Do you have to make them up? You have to make them up?

00:57:37--> 00:57:46

What if you want to fast for a while. But you know, though, that that vacation is roughly around two weeks?

00:57:48--> 00:57:51

Two weeks, maybe almost three, some people can reach up to

00:57:52--> 00:57:53

roughly 15

00:57:54--> 00:57:56

to 15 days. It ranges?

00:57:59--> 00:57:59


00:58:01--> 00:58:01

What did she do then?

00:58:07--> 00:58:09

She can't sleep. She

00:58:12--> 00:58:14

feels like she can pass

00:58:15--> 00:58:16


00:58:17--> 00:58:17


00:58:18--> 00:58:19

And she's on vacation.

00:58:23--> 00:58:26

No, no, sorry. We're kind of

00:58:27--> 00:58:29

I guess you say Republican?

00:58:33--> 00:58:34

Yes. It was a good question.

00:58:36--> 00:58:47

It was a good question. You know why? Well, if she if she wants to Why can't she right? That's a good question. But in this case, the law says no, there's no she's not allowed to pray pray or fast.

00:58:48--> 00:58:56

Right? So she can make them up in Sharla. So those are the general categories that we talked about. Net includes every every person right?

00:58:58--> 00:59:01

Can a person and facet the Traveling can they are they allowed to

00:59:03--> 00:59:05

write? They're allowed to?

00:59:10--> 00:59:12

Well, the ease is not fasting when traveling.

00:59:15--> 00:59:17

You have the option if you're traveling. Okay.

00:59:18--> 00:59:22

What is the last day of Ramadan? What is it called?

00:59:27--> 00:59:28

Eat it's just called Eat

00:59:32--> 00:59:33

it's called eight.

00:59:35--> 00:59:43

And an IID comes from the verb to return or repetition

00:59:45--> 00:59:46

to return or repetition

00:59:50--> 00:59:54

Why do you think it's called that? Why do you think it has a connection with repetition or to turn

01:00:13--> 01:00:14

It comes every year

01:00:20--> 01:00:28

you can sit there eating but we don't say either Ramadan either Salah and you're gonna go pray you're gonna you know we're gonna pray for you oh eat Fajr no we don't

01:00:30--> 01:00:35

know you you know do it like that but in this case we say eat so eat is the day

01:00:38--> 01:00:43

it's the next day so let's say we wanted to we wanted to find out

01:00:46--> 01:00:48

how do we determine the beginning of a month again

01:00:52--> 01:00:59

so just as we wait to see the crescent moon for the beginning of Ramadan we'll wait to see the crescent moon for the beginning of what

01:01:00--> 01:01:01


01:01:02--> 01:01:03

for the beginning of what

01:01:06--> 01:01:07

yes which is what

01:01:08--> 01:01:09


01:01:13--> 01:01:16

right yeah heard those anyway yeah so well

01:01:18--> 01:01:26

that's how we determine the beginning of the month right so just as we for Ramadan we saw the crescent moon that mean the next day means the next day at Frederick we do it

01:01:29--> 01:01:35

fast. So we see the crescent moon for the next month after Ramadan which is show Wow That means the next day we do what?

01:01:36--> 01:01:39

We do it. Nope

01:01:44--> 01:01:48

let me start over so you don't have to go as fast as I speak just you could just wait think about Okay.

01:01:51--> 01:02:03

Seeing the crescent moon to determine if it's the beginning of Ramadan. Right. If you were to see the crescent moon or the masjid says we saw the crescent moon that marks the beginning of Ramadan. Right.

01:02:04--> 01:02:08

Right. That's at McGraw like coming up. Okay.

01:02:09--> 01:02:10

You go to sleep.

01:02:11--> 01:02:12

You wake up

01:02:14--> 01:02:18

in your mind you know that Fajr that day? You have to do what

01:02:25--> 01:02:27

no, no, you have to fast

01:02:32--> 01:02:33

No, no.

01:02:35--> 01:02:42

The crescent moon marks the beginning Ramadan McGraw. The next day in the morning Fajr. What do you have to do?

01:02:47--> 01:02:49

Know that will start the first Ramadan

01:02:52--> 01:02:53

will be

01:02:57--> 01:03:03

yes, it marks the beginning of Ramadan. The next morning? Yeah, yeah.

01:03:05--> 01:03:05


01:03:07--> 01:03:11

marks the beginning of Ramadan. The crescent moon marks the beginning of Ramadan.

01:03:12--> 01:03:13


01:03:15--> 01:03:32

No, it was exactly you said the crescent moon marks the beginning of Ramadan. The next morning. You wake up and do it. Fast right? Key passwords. 30 days, 30 days, 30 days? One of the 29th day answer now. Right?

01:03:33--> 01:03:41

We see the crescent moon and we're told we see the crescent moon right after maghrib. They're going to see the crescent moon or before Maghrib they'll see the crescent. Right?

01:03:43--> 01:03:45

When they see the crescent that marks the beginning of what now?

01:03:48--> 01:03:53

Show Well, which means it's the first day of E.

01:03:54--> 01:03:57

E is basically the first day of show up.

01:04:00--> 01:04:07

Exactly. That's what I'm trying to break. That's why I try to go step by step by step I got to get a blanket in here and go to sleep. You sleep.

01:04:08--> 01:04:11

You wake up get to the restroom. you brush your teeth

01:04:14--> 01:04:17

associated with the end. But it's actually

01:04:19--> 01:04:19


01:04:22--> 01:04:27

what is the end of the month and I can give kind of poetic what is the end of the month except the beginning of the latter

01:04:33--> 01:04:36

what is the end of the month except the beginning of the next one?

01:04:37--> 01:04:46

All right. So eight is the first day of show up. Everyone listening. It is impermissible to fast on this day.

01:04:49--> 01:04:49


01:04:51--> 01:04:54

but I want to make a fast man. Not on this day.

01:04:56--> 01:04:57


01:05:02--> 01:05:02


01:05:08--> 01:05:20

or 30 Right it's to mark the end of Ramadan so it says that it is as though Allah is saying I want every single Muslim to acknowledge the conclusion of this beautiful month

01:05:21--> 01:05:27

by eating spotlights amazing if you think about it not only that don't just eat

01:05:28--> 01:05:30

have fun like Party

01:05:33--> 01:05:36

Party Party right like hello party

01:05:37--> 01:05:39

it was in the air like Part

01:05:43--> 01:05:44

Hello party

01:05:47--> 01:05:49

it's not like we're breaking the Heineken line

01:05:56--> 01:05:56

I'm not

01:05:58--> 01:06:26

so sure well is the first day that is a okay so that's the day that you will see on McGraw prayer if you come here to find out if it's going to be eat the next day because it may not they may not see the moon so you got it then you know the next day Shabbat is going to be at McGraw Hill got that. But if it is that day you'll see Subhanallah Muslims hugging each other congratulating each other. Let's say mashallah, congratulations Eid. What's the cue adulation? Well, they say

01:06:28--> 01:06:28


01:06:29--> 01:06:33

yeah, eat Mobarak they'll say Eid

01:06:36--> 01:06:37


01:06:38--> 01:06:39


01:06:40--> 01:06:42

Mubarak just means blessing.

01:06:43--> 01:06:44

Me you have a blessing

01:06:48--> 01:06:49

that's all that means.

01:06:51--> 01:06:52

Right? Now.

01:06:53--> 01:06:54

You will find

01:06:56--> 01:06:59

that some people will celebrate Eid for three days

01:07:04--> 01:07:09

is it technically wrong? No. Is it technically a sunnah? No.

01:07:11--> 01:07:14

II is one day one should celebrate the Eid.

01:07:15--> 01:07:21

One day, you should have fun they should go out with each other give gifts you know and how many of you celebrate Christmas?

01:07:23--> 01:07:34

Oh, Christmas. Come on. Yeah. 1159 You're waiting by the tree. You know you're hoping Santa Claus comes down. He never came down. You're disappointed shall be disappointed. My mom should I be disappointed. Right. So

01:07:35--> 01:07:49

that day, give presents to your loved ones. Go visit each other. And this is common for Congress that we don't have that mechanism. We don't have a Muslim family.

01:07:50--> 01:08:12

Right? You will find this like me. For Eid. I'd have a family. You're literally even the masjid and I hope this doesn't happen to you but it's common and we mentioned this to the community numerous times. You're leaving for the masjid after praying so all right. You see this? This is mashallah, you're I think this may be the sisters area. I don't know. Right? So shallow since you look not you know at you also wait, you were your best like

01:08:15--> 01:08:16

you know, for y'all, it would probably be

01:08:17--> 01:08:21

right for us. It'll be the you know, you wear your best clothes, right?

01:08:22--> 01:08:40

You come out you start with a committee right? How are you? Oh, this is so exhausted. How you to open my shoulders versus reputable. Boom, boom, bada boom, Bada bing, right. You walk out. By the way, you're going? I gotta go. Grandma, the whole family thing. We're gonna go to Whole family. Right? Okay. See you there.

01:08:42--> 01:08:50

So everybody are gonna go get some coffee? Nah, bro, I gotta go with the family. The whole family's gonna. And these are all Muslim families.

01:08:51--> 01:08:53

Next thing you know, you end up at your car, start your car, you're like,

01:08:55--> 01:08:56

Man, where am I gonna go?

01:08:57--> 01:08:58

Nowhere to go.

01:08:59--> 01:09:11

And you start to think, man, everybody's going with their family. I don't have a Muslim family to go to. That's when it can get kind of sad and depressing for a lot of people. I wouldn't do it.

01:09:12--> 01:09:20

I literally went back to my house and just played video games. Not now, when I was much younger, not like it was last year or anything like that.

01:09:21--> 01:09:22


01:09:23--> 01:09:42

But that is something that is very, very important. And I make an effort to articulate that to communities. Why? Because there needs to be an effort that is made for people that left you're sharing the left atheism left Hinduism left and their families don't know and sometimes don't care about this, about any of this.

01:09:43--> 01:09:59

Right. So Eid is a day of celebration. You know, we used to have you know, when I mentioned this organization, I started new we used to have them convert potlucks so people that have converted some don't have anywhere to go on this day. You want to make this day special. If you have children

01:10:00--> 01:10:01

All right.

01:10:02--> 01:10:26

Make this day special. Make it special. Like, go go to the park, go travel. You want them to feel that this is the best one of the best days of the year. It's not December 25 It's not January 1. It's the day after Ramadan. Right? Like I was I have the session that I do with the psychiatrist. We just did it yesterday as for our community,

01:10:28--> 01:10:31

and he said when I think of eat, I tell people

01:10:32--> 01:10:34

chocolate chip mint ice cream.

01:10:36--> 01:10:51

He said I'm going to be honest, I don't remember all that Ramadan stuff as a kid. What I remember is that my dad used to take us after the Eat Salah when he talked about Esau after the Eid prayer to go get chocolate mint chocolate chip mint ice cream.

01:10:52--> 01:10:58

He said I'm a psychiatrist and he's in his 30s early 40s He said I still remember this this is my favorite day

01:10:59--> 01:11:00

of the year

01:11:01--> 01:11:10

right so when you have fun mother's father's don't have from what from what you perceive his fun half from from what you know what your kids

01:11:11--> 01:11:16

understand this fun society one so eat marks that day Now lastly, we're going to cover

01:11:18--> 01:11:24

is Everyone with me after this we're done. All right. Is there Eid salah.

01:11:26--> 01:11:28

And either fitter, ya'll said either fit the right

01:11:29--> 01:11:42

fit or just means that which one can eat or to break or cleave something right? So when you say it either fits or it is the Eid it is the charity or there's a cat that is actually given

01:11:43--> 01:11:55

right we had this cat from the five pillars of Islam that is a difference a cat we're not talking about that sick cat. We're talking about these a cat that should be given upon eat on eat day

01:11:56--> 01:11:56


01:11:58--> 01:12:05

This is a cat is roughly roughly in modern times eight to $10

01:12:06--> 01:12:20

every mosque will have a group or they will have a service to where you can give them that eight to $10 and that eight to $10 is used to feed the poor.

01:12:21--> 01:12:39

That is what is the cat the these a cat and fitness for And subhanAllah the wisdom behind it is amazing. Right because the fact that you are fasting now you are going to give for the last month Allah has given you from primarily food because in actuality it should be at they say about two undead it should be

01:12:40--> 01:13:01

four handfuls of a staple food, rice, barley dates, things of that nature. But due to the fact that that is not a staple food for us in America, it should be a food that can be preserved primarily as a dry staple food. But some scholars made that made it easy and made the analogy and said look if the ultimate goal is to feed a poor person.

01:13:03--> 01:13:18

Right? So you can go somewhere buy a meal for $8. Literally, if you're driving and you see someone on the street and they have a sign up, you can give that to them. The best way to give charity is alone when no one knows Don't forget that.

01:13:20--> 01:13:21

The best way to give charity

01:13:22--> 01:13:30

is alone when no one knows why because that is the that assist you and your sincerity.

01:13:31--> 01:13:42

When no one knows that's what we talked about last night one of the wisdoms behind praying the last third of the night is that as a possible some said he said was sold a bit lately on Estonia. He said pray at the nighttime when people are asleep

01:13:43--> 01:13:49

because there has to be some kind of motivation to get up in the middle of the night. Wash up and pray

01:13:54--> 01:14:01

is difficult and with every difficulty comes ease. But that difficulty appreciates every moment of that difficulty in any case,

01:14:03--> 01:14:07

that's the council fitzer Is that is obligatory upon every single Muslim to pay it

01:14:09--> 01:14:15

or to give it now that's the council fitter fitters should be before the prayer

01:14:17--> 01:14:42

before the Eid prayer, the Eid prayer is in the morning time roughly so Fajr comes in roughly about 605 You will find that the mosques will have a prayer around 8am or 10am or 11am you will find some mosques will have more than one Eid prayer.

01:14:43--> 01:14:59

You know you see Juma Have you ever Juma there are three of them here right there three. Same thing with eat, they will have it why to facilitate for the congregants because not everyone can feeder and especially now with COVID Everyone's spread out. So eat will be three

01:15:00--> 01:15:01

Now the prayer

01:15:04--> 01:15:08

you will have the prayer and then the hotbar

01:15:10--> 01:15:13

it is not obligatory to sit for the hotbar.

01:15:15--> 01:15:27

Okay, it is not obligatory, it is highly recommended to come to the prayer. If you cannot no problem as long as there are some of the community members that come, okay.

01:15:28--> 01:15:34

Okay, if you can make it is great because most time people may be working. I mean, it's 10am. Right? So you don't have to.

01:15:35--> 01:15:59

But it's important that you give that charity before the prayer or we say prayer time. So you can give it the night before you will find it the end of Ramadan, they'll say, brothers so you could give us the cats and fitzer and go to the administration office or you know, at the front, you'll see collect, you'll see it in front of the when you walk in and say the leaders of Katherine Fitz are here. That's what they mean by the cat, filter. Anyone have any questions?

01:16:00--> 01:16:01

Anyone have a

01:16:03--> 01:16:09

second person to share? roughly eight to $10? Are they going down?

01:16:10--> 01:16:13

No, no, no, it's usually around eight to $10. When When was it

01:16:14--> 01:16:15


01:16:17--> 01:16:18


01:16:19--> 01:17:01

at Epic, I've noticed to be like around eight to $10. And the way they determined that is when they determined like the pricing of the actual staple food. That's how they would determine it. Right? So maybe 12 may range, right. So that's generally the general pricing of it. But the best thing is to actually give the meal. The reason they you can give it in cash is to make it easier for the community. We're busy we work things of that nature. Okay? Please don't forget beer eat is very, very important. To try your best to make that a day of celebration, it is very, very important. That is one of the wisdoms behind Allah making it obligatory to eat not too fast. Okay, and then after

01:17:01--> 01:17:09

that you can fast your six days of show while or make up your days of fasting. Does anyone else does anyone have any questions regarding this?

01:17:11--> 01:17:14

No question whatsoever? No comments?

01:17:16--> 01:17:19

How did you all find this session these sessions these classes?

01:17:20--> 01:17:23

Informational. Informational.

01:17:24--> 01:17:42

were helpful. And Sharla. Please remember two things. One of them. If you come to the total, we it's not just going to be straight prayer. It is but there is a nice message that usually is given in between for after the for record. So remember, we said here, total we

01:17:44--> 01:17:45

when we say the total we

01:17:46--> 01:17:49

right, so you'll find Moss, they'll offer 20.

01:17:50--> 01:17:52

But then some will offer eight, right?

01:17:53--> 01:17:55

Usually at this point.

01:17:57--> 01:18:08

After the eight rakaats are done after they're done here, you will find that they'll stop and somebody will come up and give a lecture.

01:18:09--> 01:18:37

The lecture will be maybe about five to 10 minutes. And the lecture most likely will contain a will be pertaining to a verse that was read in these eight buckets is going to be pertaining to a verse or subject matter that deals with the Quran. Because when we said this is the month of the Quran, so that's what the Julie gonna be talking about. So I would highly advise you all at least to come for eight and I think here they're gonna pray at noon. We're not gonna create one

01:18:38--> 01:18:50

at my master down the street, we're going to create we're actually going to create two different we're going to pray isha tarawih eight records, then Witter, and then 15 minutes later we're going to pray another Aisha then another tour we then wizard

01:18:53--> 01:19:12

you right, and the main reason is because the distance is because between each off between each person, you could have put three people there. So in our community, you know, everyone wants to go I mean COVID They could go the masjid last year, so it's going to be very interesting this year. So we're making two congregations in any case, I would highly advise you when you're mashallah you just finished praying eight to listen to this message.

01:19:13--> 01:19:51

It's a nice little message. That's the first thing the second thing is after Ramadan, that's when we're gonna start our classes here. Okay, we're gonna have the book little book that I wrote about 10 years ago for converts. Okay, and that's where we're gonna go into you know, what is Eman was the pillar, what is belief? What are aspects of belief in Islam, how to pray, how to make will do kind of what we did today with the illustrious individuals that taught me how to pray today, mashallah to better Allah. Okay. And then we're going to go to history of the Quran. How is the Quran written by God was written by Muhammad, right? Why do we have it in book form? Was it memorized? But what's the

01:19:51--> 01:19:59

deal with that? What is the meaning of sunnah? When we say Sunni, what does that mean? You say a Hadith of the Prophet. Who are you?

01:20:00--> 01:20:09

He told me that the Prophet said that and that was 1400 years ago. How in the world did you know that? And how is that supposed to be something that I have to believe in?

01:20:11--> 01:20:26

Right? We're going to cover that inshallah over a period of 12 weeks I highly implore you all to spread the message and to come inshallah very, very beneficial in sha Allah Tala nd I found it dumped my years of teaching it that it really answers a lot of questions that you didn't know

01:20:28--> 01:20:38

that you are going to ask in the future, if that makes sense. Like oh, it's one of those. You know what, I never thought of that. What's the answer? It's one of those shallow okay

01:20:42--> 01:20:45

watch this. Watch this guys. A week after eat

01:20:49--> 01:20:57

right. Just remember that a week after eat a week after eating. Okay. Anyone have any questions? If you have any questions, you know?

01:20:59--> 01:21:15

I don't know. If you have any questions, you have any questions just you could just leave it with just a reminder. Yeah, I think they have there's a group you can ask a question and I'll be more than happy to answer them. Inshallah. If you have any comments, you know about eat or anything that nature please leave in the group.
