Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. While he was so happy he married my brothers and sisters in Islam. I want to share with you today why I believe Omar bomb in lockdown or mobile in the house is actually a positive thing and a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us. Ramadan in lockdown helps us and enables us to fast properly and correctly. What do I mean by fasting properly and correctly? In a hadith and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in NA cm Elisa meenal actually what should pop up that fasting is not only about refraining from eating and drinking, many people can do this children as young as five years

00:00:46--> 00:01:34

old, also fast a few days in Ramadan, and they avoid eating and drinking. There are non Muslims that have also chosen to fast in solidarity with Muslims during this time. And there are people that refrain from eating and drinking for healthy habits for diet purposes and so on. Then, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this Hadith, he actually identifies and teaches us what proper fasting is. So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in number cmoh min Allah we will refer that fasting is too fast from all types of filth and evil pieces what proper fasting is. So now you identify that the eyes can cause a person harm and evil to himself. When he looks at that which

00:01:34--> 00:02:05

displeases Allah subhanho Medina. As a result, proper fasting would mean that the eyesight needs to also fast with you when you fast, and that your ease can also hear what's how long. Have what a lot of social media how long, from backbiting, to slandering to mockery. Whenever you hear that you're supposed to move away from that kind of filthy environment where people speak about each other. So when you fast a proper fasting would mean that you also close your ears from that which is how long

00:02:06--> 00:02:50

also the tongue can speak how long from slander, to backbiting, to cursing, to swearing. All of this is from the evils of the tongue. The Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also in this hadith is teaching us that proper fasting is to also refrain from speaking bad, feel free words, and the hands and the feet can touch whatever can walk you through that which is how long so proper fasting would mean that you also hold your hands back from that which allows me to hold on and hold your feet back from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala submitters from walking to subhanho wa Taala and in that same Hadith interview, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to emphasize this point, he said for

00:02:50--> 00:03:36

inserra Becca harden OSHA Hilah Lake, in new salt in new salt in Japan, Allah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, and if anyone was to become obnoxious towards you, if anyone was to insult you and swear at you, and curse you, then say back to him respond to him by saying in new saw him in new saw him that I'm fasting and fasting. What does this mean? And aroma hammer Home Alarm Humala, they said that when you respond by saying, I'm fasting, it doesn't refer to the fact that you're fasting, meaning refraining from eating and drinking, that's a given. That's a known and you don't speak things like that, because the deed of fasting is something between you and Allah azzawajal it's sin,

00:03:36--> 00:03:58

see, you don't go and publicly mention to the people that you're fasting. Rather, I'm fasting here in context of the Hadith, means I am fasting from filthy language from bad speech. So as a result, I am not going to swear back at you, and I am not going to curse you, because my fasting refrains me and stops me from doing so.

00:03:59--> 00:04:46

This is what proper fasting is. This is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us and if you do not implement this kind of proper fasting, then there is a warning and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in the authentic hadith obasa even ladies and gentlemen see me he was that it could be the case of a fasting person, that the only thing he gets out of his fasting is that he starved and became thirsty for a couple of hours during the day. In other words, that's all he got. And he earned no reward from his fasting. So power law, what a huge loss to such a person. And I conclude with this, Abu Dhabi, Allahu anhu. When he used to fast he used to sit in the masjid him

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

and his companions, and they would observe their fasting in the masjid. So kind of you can think of like a lockdown. And then when he was asked, Why do you do so? He said two words, and I want this to be your model.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

For the rest of this Blizzard month, he said, mobile hero, CNN, we are purifying our fast, we are keeping our fasting clean. This is why we've chosen to stay indoors as opposed to being outside, above all, a lot of the Allahu anhu. He realizes and he knows that the outside world is full of evil. It's full of filth, it's full of corruption and oppression. You know, my brothers and sisters in Islam. It doesn't take one for us to just open up a news feed in Facebook and scroll down a little bit so that we read the news and we see the kind of corruption and the oppression that is happening outside. That's how the world is. That's what's happening outside. It's a place of evil

00:05:41--> 00:06:31

outside for such a long journey, even to the point where if you were to walk 500 meters in any business district around the world, you are most likely to encounter almost 70% of the minus signs of the Hereafter, you will pass by earlybird the banks of interest Zener the fornication you will pass by an hammer, the alcohol the pubs the clubs, almost 70% and more of that almost 70% of the of the minus signs you will see you'll encounter that's only in a space of 500 meters. You see how filthy and corrupt it is outside. Now you understand how much of a blessing it is that Allah subhanho wa Taala kept us indoors so that it can purify our fasting so that our fasting becomes pure

00:06:31--> 00:07:20

and clean and be vanilla has a much better chance for it to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters in Islam, preserve your fasting fast properly and understand as you're in lockdown. It helps you by keeping you away from being exposed to a lot of the filth and corruption that is outside. And make sure you understand that your phone could either be a source that destroys you or it elevates you and earns you great reward for every cursing word that you type is the same as a cursing word that you speak and for every backbiting that you speak and your type is also in the same bad deed as if you were to say it and speak it in the presence of others. So also control
