Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah. If you missed out on fasting, the six days of Chawan, you don't want to miss out on this opportunity to make a law to make up the fast that you missed during Chawan after Schwan Inshallah, and many of you might be surprised to hear this, is it permissible for us to make up the fast if we missed it or not? And is there a difference between someone who hasn't had an excuse for missing fasting six days in between the person who got a bit lazy, especially those who may be fasted three or four days, and then got back into the everyday routine of life, and just missed out on making those fasting those six days during the month of Chawan? So is it permissible

00:00:40 --> 00:01:16

for him now to fast those days that he missed after Shabbat and still get the reward? There is a difference of opinion between the scholars, is this permissible or not? And perhaps you could summarize their views and to three different opinions. The first opinion is yes, you can fast these days after show all if you miss them. And what's meant by the Hadith and whoever fast Ramadan and then follows up with six days I'm sure well, what's meant by this, they said is because it's easier to fast and short, so it's better to fast Inshallah, but if someone missed it, he can do it anytime during the year. The second opinion is that whoever missed it during Chawan, that he makes it up the

00:01:16 --> 00:01:51

month after she wanted to do it. And he will get the reward, but it won't be the same reward, his reward would be less but he'll get part of the reward, if he makes it up in their card. Inshallah. The third opinion is that you only get the virtues you only get the reward if you fast these six days insha Allah themselves as it's clear in the Hadith, and this is a sunnah fast. So if you miss the time, then you miss the opportunity to get the reward. And they said, there's no difference between the person who missed these days, he had a valid excuse or the one who didn't have a valid excuse, meaning both of them do not make it up after Schwann if they missed the time, then they

00:01:51 --> 00:02:30

missed the opportunity for this fast however, Schekman bez Rahim, Allah Tala mentioned something very important and that is that an individual who missed the fast for the other for a valid reason that inshallah Tana, we hope that he will get the reward for the fast if he intended to fast. So for example, if someone became ill, and he couldn't finish the fast, but his intention was to finish the fast. Like we said, Someone fast it three or four days, and then he wasn't able to finish because he became sick, or something urgent happened and someone had to travel when he couldn't faster and traveling, so he didn't pass his fifth and sixth day or just the sixth day. This happens a lot. So

00:02:30 --> 00:03:06

if a person did this in Shanell Tala, we hope that he will get the reward and this is taken from the Hadith and salable Hadith, where the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam said, either several Abdu, O Marieb that if the servant travels or become sick, that Allah subhana wa Tada will write for him the Agile the reward of what he used to do when he was Sahai when he was healthy and and will theme when he was a resident. Therefore, in Chautala, if you had an excuse in shallow title, you're going to get the reward. What about the other category, the ones who got lazy, a lot of people, you know, during shuwa, they want to get that reward, but then they become lazy. You get caught up in everyday

00:03:06 --> 00:03:45

life, you go, you come now to the office, and you see people drinking coffee, you say, Okay, I need my coffee this morning. Let me let me have a cup of coffee and I'll do my fast tomorrow or the over the weekend, and then you end up not doing it. Obviously with a third opinion, it's not permissible to make it up. And to be honest with you, when you look at it from you know the textual evidence from the Hadith. That hadith is clear, whoever follows up and six have showed, therefore this is the opinion that that I follow and that I lean to. However, if someone were to know the opinion of the other scholars that his intention is Yet Allah except for me, and in shallow Tyler, I will make sure

00:03:45 --> 00:04:20

that I will not be lazy in the future. You have that strong intention where if you get the opportunity again to finish on Milan, that you'll never miss the six days of Shabbat again, repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala and in enough for a sin because there's sunnah but for your shortcomings because it's something honestly, opportunity six days and you get the reward of fasting for an entire year and who would miss out on an opportunity like that? So she Athan got you you come back to Allah subhana wa Tada you fast these days with that intention, following the opinion of those scholars inshallah Tada we hope that Allah will reward you for that but like we said lesson learned

00:04:20 --> 00:04:23

that we don't miss out on it again Inshallah, in the future, Baraka Luffy come
