Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him would like to know is he just compulsory for him? Somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
But what do we have to do if, if a mistake happens with fasting? Right? As we discussed that humanist to err, we might commit mistakes, you know, we might encounter or face certain time, wherein we unintentionally, unintentionally, not intentionally, unintentionally, we might drink water. And it happens, for example, for people who do not fast and they are not used to fasting, sometimes what happens is anybody offers you drink a non Muslim, you drink it up, and later you realize that you're fasting. So does this break fast? It doesn't break the fast, it is a mistake, which is done, unintentionally. So what do you have to do, you have to continue your fast, because
Allah subhanaw taala will not hold you accountable for the things which happens by you, unintentionally.
You see, this is again, a rundown of our last panel a mercy of Allah subhanaw taala, that he does not catch you about your mistakes, if it is done. By mistake, coincidentally, by chance. So if you eat or drink by mistake, or if you do anything, which could nullify the fasting by mistake,
then that also mistake can be it could be done, but then you will have to continue fasting that does not nullify your fasting. So you need to keep in mind, and this doesn't happen. You see, when you actually and sincerely make the Nia as the way of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, you are being conscious that this day is the day of fasting. So you are psychologically prepared, physically prepared, mentally prepared, that this day is the day of fasting. So I'm not going to fast, I'm not going to have anything, which breaks my fast, I'm not going to do anything which harms my fasting, I'm not going to get in anything which nullifies my fasting. So when you do this conscious attempt
to do this act of ibadah, that is fasting, then in general, you don't commit since in general you don't commit sin, but then case if you commit sin, then commit mistake, then that can be carried out and that fasting inshallah is valid in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. One more thing we need to understand this fasting is not just abstaining from eating, drinking and not having sexual intercourse with your wife, but it's a fasting of your entire personality. You don't you you don't see anything Haram. you refrain yourself from anything which is haram which is prohibited. You don't speak anything which is harmful, which is haram which is absolutely against the commands of Allah
subhanaw taala, for example, you should not backbite behind the back of your brother, anything which he does not like to hear. So you back you actually do fasting of your tongue, you actually do the fasting of your eyes, you actually do the fasting of your body, you do the fasting of your mind, you don't think anything wrong, anything prohibited, which is there in the Quran, or in the sooner you try to abstain from these acts. That's how you actually empower your fasting, strengthen your fasting. Also, you keep your heart pure in terms of doing fasting, you know for sure that insha Allah if you sincerely fast and you expect and you hope the reward from Allah, Allah Subhana Allah
will forgive your past since we do these things and you fast in this way, then you will help yourself not to come up with
sticks, it will psychologically you are prepared physically you are prepared that you are going to fast. So there is a very, very remote possibility that you will commit mistakes. However, as I've mentioned, if you have committed a mistake, coincidentally by chance by mistake, you know, unintentionally, then you can continue your fast beat drinking or eating by mistake. Hope that answers your question.
