Welcome to the program, Islam insight and insightful journey essentials of Islam and the pillars of Lehman.
Brothers and sisters, we are dealing with some of the significant questions pertaining to the essentials of Islam and the essentials of a man.
And in this session, we shall discuss some of the questions pertaining to one of the pillars of Islam and that is so fasting. We have mentioned that fasting is a beautiful everybody have lost time. It is one of the foundations. It is one of the principles and one of the principles and the Pillars of Islam upon which Islam is built.
We will take our journey further by taking more questions and addressing with their answers on the topic of song that is fasting. So we may have the first question from Hugo Salaam Alaikum alaikum Salam rahmatullah wa what are the different types of songs?
There are obviously different types of songs that we learn from Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number one is the obligatory one, which we have to fast during the month of Ramadan. Allah Subhana, Allah says in Surah, Baqarah surah number two, and number 185. That whenever you see, you cite the moon, you have to fast and that is indicating the obligately fast, which is during the month of Ramadan. That's the obligatory fast which every Muslim has to fast except those who are exempted from it. There are other kinds of fast as well, which again, help us to gain consciousness, the God consciousness, like for example, the voluntary fasts, the optional fasts, which upon which you don't
have a sin, but you have great benefits, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he mentioned and he observed different types of fasting. The most important one, for example, under fasting is the fasting of Ashura, you know, wherein the fasting has a great importance and reward, the fastings in general in regular that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him used to observe on Mondays and Thursdays, he used to fast regularly on Mondays and Thursdays. And he used to say to the people, that I would like to give the account to Allah subhanaw taala as the deeds goes to Allah subhanaw taala on Mondays and Thursdays, so I would like to present my deeds while I was fasting. So, these are also
very highly recommended fasting, that we can fast you know, as voluntary fast on Mondays and Thursdays also Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, used to fast three days in the month, whichever days are those he used to fast these three days in the month and Prophet sallallahu Sallam he does not use too fast, essentially, on Fridays on Fridays at
Doesn't have to fast so, following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, we can fast on Mondays and Thursdays, we can fast three days in a month, we can fast on the days of Ashura the
the fasting of chawan after Ramadan, there are six fast things that we can fast again, all these additional are optional fasting will help us to achieve the objective and that is gaining God consciousness. These fasting essentially help us connected with Allah subhanaw taala. Otherwise generally what happens we fast only in the month of Ramadan and we have to wait all the way to face another Ramadan. So that is the reason Islam being a way of life. It helps and encourages and invites you to fast even the voluntary fasts so that you are used to it. It's not a new or surprise thing you know, after 11 months you're facing Ramadan, where you have to fast compulsorily whether
the person is good or bad, the good Muslim or bad Muslim, he has to fast he fasts, but then he will not have that pleasure. The way a person who regularly fast so you can fast on Mondays and Thursdays the fasting of which is optional again for chawan but has a great reward indeed you can fast on on Muharram you know to show our our gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala. So, essentially speaking, you have obligatory fast, you have to fast and you have optional fast way you can fast to gain maximum benefit out of it. Hope that answers your question.
