Every day requires its own intention. And we said that the only exception to this rule and that sorry and that intention must be made during the month. So not only does each day require its intention, and that's for fasting anyway, whether it's Ramadan or outside of Ramadan, and that intention must be made in the night is before solid confession. The only exception to that rule is where

00:04:58--> 00:04:59


00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Police are handing out tickets by Morrison's

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

anyway, so

00:05:07--> 00:05:48

the intention must be made before solid confession. However, the only exception to that rule is if there is an optional fast. In such a case the person has the ability has the option. To start the fast we'll make the intention of the fast during the day of that fast before midday. For example, if a person woke up with an optional fast just a normal day of the week, they choose to fast on that day they wake up, they haven't eaten, they haven't drunk, they haven't done anything which would break their fast they decide at 10am to faster day it is allowed for an optional fast non obligatory fast and these are their hobbies that we spoke about yesterday and obviously we went through all of

00:05:48--> 00:06:39

this in detail in yesterday's class. So today inshallah We will begin with the next hobbies hobbies number 546. One sahalie blusa dynaudio long run under Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon now his nurse will be hired in a general theater Mutasa Qunari and Hadith number 547. Will it Timothy min Hadith to be Hurrah for the long run on NBS on Allahu alayhi wa sallam Apollo Paloma Mirza Virgil horiba de la Argento whom fitrah had Islam of 546 on the authority of Santi Busan. wangara Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the people will continue to be in goodness so long as they hasten the if the fast the meal that breaks the fast and this is collected in Bukhari

00:06:39--> 00:07:21

and Muslim and had his number 547 is the duration in a telemovie on the authority of herbivore era rhodiola one that the profits on a long run and he will sell them said that Allah azza wa jal says that from the most beloved of servants to me, of those who hastened if thought, these are two ahaadeeth that even harder Rahim Allah mentions concerning some of the aspects of fasting. The first Hadith, as you can see, is authentic sinner, Bukhari and Muslim. The second Hadeeth is Hadith in a telemovie, over which some of the scholars have different concerning its authenticity or its lack thereof. And it seems that the Hadith is has an IT is acceptable, and Alon was best. Both of these

00:07:21--> 00:08:06

ahaadeeth speak about essentially the same issue and the same principle and that is that from the Sunnah of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And from the practices that we have in the month of Ramadan when a person is fasting, even outside of the month of Ramadan, is that we hasten the if bar meal, what is the foreign meal they found meal is the one with which we break our fast at the time of mockery. So fasting begins from dawn until Mercury, so that that meal that we have at the time of mercury is known as the F bar. And f bar comes from the word of para, which means to break your fast to break your fast. And so that meal that we have, which breaks our fast at the time of

00:08:06--> 00:08:48

mothering, it is the student of our profits on a long word he was telling them to hasten that meal. What does that mean? It means that you have at the earliest possible time, what is the earliest possible time as soon as Muslim enters? How do you know mercury has entered when the more elven begins to make the alarm. So as soon as he says Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, as soon as he begins to make the advance, that is the earliest time of his part. And so it is the sooner to break the fast straightaway, not to wait until after the other than not to wait for 1015 minutes after he finishes the other than not to wait after selecting Muslim, but to break fast as soon as the event is given.

00:08:48--> 00:08:58

One of the reasons for this and one of the reasons why it is such a highly recommended sooner is something which I will profits on alone, while he was still limited mentioned in southern Abu Dawood,

00:08:59--> 00:09:37

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this religion will continue to become apparent, you will be meaning strong, and the people will continue to be in goodness, so long as they hasten the farm meal. And they differ from the Jews and the Christians who do not break their fast until the stars have come out. So it was the practice of the Jews and the Christians at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that when he came for their fasting, to break their fast, they wouldn't break the fast at the time of Muslim, but they wouldn't even break it. For example, in the time slot of Missouri, which is when you see redness in the sky, but they would wait

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

for the sky to go black the stars to emerge, meaning that it's not in the dead of night, and then they would break their fast and so in order to differ from them. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established this sooner and that is that you hasten the talk. There are many Hadith evolution hunter Rahim Allah only mentions two there are many a hadith that speak about this

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

issue from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This single issue is reported from 11 different companions, or their loved one whom they narrate this had this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Not only that, but the scholars have said, that Hadith that speak about the single issue of its power, hastening the far reaches the level of tobacco. What is taught to tobacco in the science of Hadith is that so many people have narrated the single issue, that it's impossible for it to be alive, impossible for it to be alive. For example, if a person comes in, he says that outside, there's a car crash, right? Just like someone says that outside someone's giving tickets on the cars

00:10:43--> 00:11:21

and so on. One person you don't know insha Allah is truthful, but you don't know. Right? Because there's one person, you don't know how trustworthy how much confidence do you have in that person that you've never met a new Doc, no. Two people come and say the same thing, you still have some element of doubt, three people come now that doubt is diminishing. And the more people that come, the more confidence that you have. So if all of the people sitting here 3040 people will all to come with exactly the same story. And everyone sitting here doesn't know everyone else, you don't know every single person. I don't know every single one of you either. So therefore, we're not friends.

00:11:21--> 00:12:00

We're not family members. We're not related. We're not business partners. We're just general Muslims, everyone's doing their own thing. But we all come and unite on this one issue. This is tomato, it is multilateral, it is impossible for you to be alive, because so many people from so many different places, and different backgrounds are reporting and narrating the same single issue. And so in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the science of Hadith, this is considered to be the strongest type of Hadith. The strongest, most authentic level of Hadith is the Hadith, which is motorwagen, meaning that so many companions have narrated this, that it's something

00:12:00--> 00:12:29

which is accepted. And we gave examples of this before in the previous chapter of Kitab taharah. We gave the example of wiping over the socks, that is an issue of terroir to so many companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated that single issue. So it's not just a one companion may have made a mistake, one companion forgot one companion, got his wires crossed. But so many people have narrated, it is impossible for it to be aligned. This is one of those issues, the if thought

00:12:30--> 00:13:11

that a person comes and they bring they've thought forward, and from what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned in the hadith of bootsy, is that it is beloved to Allah azza wa jal. So not only is it something which is recommended, it is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning that there is great reward in doing this. So it's amazing in the Sharia, you will think that if you were to prolong your act of worship that would be more better in the sight of Allah. For person doesn't break their fast at the time of mothering. But they break it after Isha that one and a half hour period of fasting is fasting, the worshiping Allah had to do so would be disliked, and the person

00:13:11--> 00:13:52

wouldn't be rewarded for that. But rather to break the fast at the time of mercury, even though you finishing an act of worship, the fact that you're following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you following what Allah has legislated, even though it means ending an act of worship that is better and was beloved to Allah. And that's why some of the scholars said that this wording of the Hadith will not be higher. The people who continue to be in goodness, what does it refer to? It refers to Yes, hastening the dark, but more generally refers to following the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it's not only in this issue, but in any issue. And

00:13:52--> 00:14:31

that's why yesterday we gave the example of the person who in Medina chooses to buy the ROM from machine another way, rather than going to the mere court of Medina, which is in beautiful Eva, even though most of the nabawi has its status in the religion, it is a virtuous place. It has so many virtues, and it has a certain status in the religion are amongst the Muslims. But when it comes to this issue, this is not the Sunnah to make your harami mission, the number, but the Sunnah is to go to the main part in the labor and make the run from there. And so when you have the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then everything else whether in our intellect, it makes most

00:14:31--> 00:14:38

sense or lessons, everything else is put to the side, we follow the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:14:39--> 00:14:53

that's how do you target number 548 were another similar mnemonic I'm not the only one who call Paul Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Sahara Hello. For enough is Satori Baraka looked upon early

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

on the authority of NSE nomadic rhodiola one who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Make the whole four indeed within this meal there is blessing. And this is collected by an Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim. This Hadith like the previous Hadith is an issue again, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recommended for us to do in a state of fasting. And that is now the opposite of the previous issue, the previous issue we spoke about, which is the meal that you take at the time of breaking your faster Muslim time. The soul is the opposite meal, the meal that you take before you begin your fast before Salatu official. When does the fasting begin at the time of the event of fragile as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the villa you have been

00:15:42--> 00:16:23

blamed for kulu wash Lobo Hector you have been able to mimic the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said beloved will make the other than for you during the night. What does that mean? What other than is he making a tonight other than for the head to write the event for 200 the first unofficial meaning the advance of the huddle and even now if you go to Makkah and Medina they have to advance professional. The first is to signify that the time of fudger is about an hour away if you want to pay 200 if you're not already awake, this is the time to wake up. Prepare yourself for the 100 and so this was the first event so the purpose of circumstance Bilaal makes the event during the night

00:16:23--> 00:17:06

meaning the first event so continue to eat and drink until you hear economic term, make the other winner of the long run. Obviously everyone knows is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abdullah bin Maktoum rhodiola Wang was another illustrious famous companion, also an elven of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a blind companion. He was the one that a lot of that was referred to the Quran in surah. Abba, Abba, so what Allah Allah when Allah azza wa jal says that the prophets of Salaam found and he turned away when the blind man came to Him, who was the blind man, Abdullah ignominy matome robiola, when the Prophet son alone when he was still learning some of the battles

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

and some of his journeys, when he left

00:17:10--> 00:17:53

Medina to go on a journey, he would appoint on occasion Abdullah Abu Maktoum, to be his governor of Medina, he would be the person in charge of the affairs of the Medina until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam return. So the point here being that the time of fasting begins with the amount of pleasure. So just as the time of fasting ends are better than a Muslim, it begins with the advent of Virgil. So as soon as the Elven says Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, for the Atlanta pleasure, the time of school is over, the fasting has now begun. So the meal that you have before that, that is known as this whole meal, this whole meal, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, take the

00:17:53--> 00:18:34

whole meal, for indeed there was blessing in it. And this is something also which is contrary to what religions practice when it comes to fasting, because it's reported that they don't have a pre dawn meal, they don't have this whole meal they just fast until the Prophet is on a lower and he was solemn, and from the mercy of Allah azza wa jal is he gave us this meal. Not only is it something that you can eat to gain strength, but by doing so you follow the Sunnah. And it is a source of blessing and Allah azza wa jal will reward you. And this issue like the previous issue of if power is also motomachi, also narrated by so many companions, that it cannot be alive. So the Prophet

00:18:34--> 00:19:15

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us and he encouraged the companions to do this in a narration in Muslim, Mr. Mohammed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, make the whole meal, for Indeed, Allah and His angels send the salutation upon the one who makes the whole meal, do it even if you raise a cup of water means where even if you're tired, even if, for example, in the long summer days, when we fast, by the time you finish eating, it's only a couple of hours before it's time for Virgil, even if you don't feel hungry, and you don't need food, take the whole meal, even if it's just a glass of water, even if it's something like a couple of dates, a glass of water,

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

whatever it is that you're having, whatever you eat, that will qualify as the sacral meal. And because of the blessing that is contained within this, not only is a physical type of blessing, but also that Allah and His angels send their citations upon such people and who is it that doesn't need a lot of soldier and the angels have a lot to make draft for them and to send their citations upon them. So this issue, like the previous issue, is also an issue of suiting up not only is an issue of sooner, it is an issue which differentiates us from the Jews and the Christians and other religions that may fast. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Hadith in Sahih Muslim

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

in the Muslim aubenas Yamuna was young

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

Nikita atleta Sahar,

00:20:03--> 00:20:30

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the difference between us and our fast and the fasting of the Jews and the Christians, the people of the book is that we take the second meal we have is pre dawn meals, it is something which is highly recommended in the religion that it's Heidi Harris number 549. Ron Selman, army of the beat rhodiola one and in the BU sallallahu alayhi wasallam upon

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

his or

00:20:33--> 00:21:14

her Allah Chamberlain for eliminated for lifter Allah ma for in Naruto, Rahul Hamza, also how uzima webinar headband will hack him on the authority of Selma deployment of Bobby rhodiola one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if one of you breaks us faster, let him break his fast with dates. And if he's unable to do so them upon water, for indeed it is pure. And this is collected by the five authenticated biblical zema. And even a ban and unhackme Santa Rahim Allah is mentioned another issue also from the Sunnah from the way of our profits on Allahu Allah, He will sell them and his guidance when it comes to fasting. And that is now when it comes to the power meal

00:21:14--> 00:21:55

the meal that you take a Muslim to break your fast. What should you begin with? What do you break your fast with? Even 100 Rahim Allah mentions one Hadith in the whole book concerning this issue, just this hadith that we have in front of us. But there are two other Hadith that also speak about the same issue that I will bring to your attention. One of them is weak. And that is that it is reported on the profits on the long run he was tell him that he said that it was said about him that he would love to break his fast with three dates. Or if not, then some type of liquid machinery would drink some water. Or sorry, he would not. If he couldn't find the three dates he would find

00:21:55--> 00:22:34

something which wasn't cooked. So he would break his fast with three dates. And if he couldn't find that, then it would be something which wasn't cooked them too simple. Now, it wasn't cooked. This handy tool is weak, it is in a weak duration. And so therefore it is incorrect. The other hand is which is authentic on the authority of Anasazi along one collected in a Buddha wooden a chairman he is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he will want to break his fast he will begin with Rota, rota is a type of half ripe date. And if he wasn't able to, then he would make it with tomorrow, fully ripe date. And if he wasn't able to, then he would drink some water. And this is, I

00:22:34--> 00:22:38

think, the most famous of the hobbies in this regard.

00:22:39--> 00:23:17

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. His Sunnah was that if it was going to break his fast, he would break it with the rupam. Now this isn't something which is known to us. But if you go to the Arab countries, and especially those people wanting to the agriculture and in the Arabs and amongst the Arabs, especially in the Middle East, then one of the most primary ways of agriculture for them is date palm trees. In the desert, not many things grow. But one of the things that grow very well are the palm trees. And so they were known to have a lot of dates, dates, were a part of their diet and the prophet SAW Selim would often only survive on dates and water for many a day and many a

00:23:17--> 00:24:00

night. And so it was known amongst Arabs to have dates, dates are of many different types, you get different types of dates and dates also vary in terms of ripening. So they have different stage stages in terms of how ripe or unripe they are. So it begins with obviously unripe and then it goes to a stage which is known as rooftop rooftop is half right dates. If you go to now Saudi Arabia if you go to Mecca and Medina and you go and you break your fast there, whether it's a Monday or a Thursday or in the month of Ramadan, wherever they are, is they're most likely what you'll be given in the Haram in the mosque in McCann in the mosque in Medina is maybe some of you have tasted and

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

eaten this, it is normally half yellow, half prime, half of it is soft, and sweet. The other half is hard. It is half rate this half ripe, right this is known as Rupa. And normally what they do, because obviously dates have harvest as a time in which dates come an hour and a half, right? They pluck them at the time and a half wipe because obviously if you leave them on trees, then they will become fully wiped. And what they do is they freeze them so as to preserve them in that state. And then the whole year round they have these types of robots available to them. This is the type of date that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would prefer to break his fast with. If he wasn't

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

able to find this type of date, then he would break you with what is known as tomorrow. And tomorrow is a fully ripe date. It's old Brown. That's the type of data that you're most likely gonna get when you go to the shops. here in Birmingham. If you go to your local shop Muslim shop in the month of Ramadan, what they normally will give you is the fully ripe

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

Date however now you will even get rid of there are places that you will find a lot of even in the UK and the normally frozen and the normally given in small boxes to break your fast with rato is the sooner that is better if you're unable to the normal dates, meaning the fully right prom date, and if you're unable to then to drink some water, this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:26--> 00:25:51

de la luz to come kill Monica de la home Hina ianto motif upon Holly

00:25:59--> 00:26:43

Harris number 550 on the authority of Abu hora de la one who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade the companions from continuously fasting and will mention what this means. So I'm a person from amongst the Muslims. He said, O Messenger of Allah, you yourself continuously fast, so you reply to an alarm when he was solemn, and which one of you is like me, for indeed I sleep and my my Lord gives me nourishment, he feeds me, and he gives me that to drink. So when they, when they refuse to stop continuously fasting, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fasted with them continuously for one day, then for another day, and then on the third day, they saw the moon so he

00:26:43--> 00:26:58

said to them, if the moon had not come, I would have continued to fast with you continuously. Just as a person who wishes to teach someone a lesson continues to do so, until they learn that lesson, buttafuoco knowledge collected in an Buhari and Muslim

00:27:00--> 00:27:37

this head of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is mentioned here because it is to do with his power and psycho well it has to do with eating and drinking on the days of fasting whereas in reality can also be placed in another chapter which will come later on and that is the type of fasting which is prohibited as we know there are certain times in which it is prohibited for a person to fast right like for example that I have read but this handy it is mentioned here by Mahajan, Rahim Allah because it also relates to the issues that we've just been discussing the issues of if bought and sold. And that sort of over the long run is saying that the Prophet

00:27:37--> 00:28:20

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade the companions from Western Western is the fast in which you don't eat and drink. So for example, a person wakes up before they have oatmeal. Right, they begin to fast at the time of mockery. They don't eat or drink. And they continue to fast until fudger. And they haven't yet eaten or drunk. Then they fast the next day as well. They fast the next day as well. And then they break the fast at the end of that second day. This is resolved continuous fast and so continuous fasting doesn't mean that you fast every day, one day after the next day mean that you make a thought, then you fast The next day, then you break your fast you invest every day in a

00:28:20--> 00:28:59

row. No, that's not what we saw is and that type of fasting is disliked too fast every day on the truck, and optional fasting outside of the month of Ramadan is disliked. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the most beloved type of fasting or the best type of fasting is the first of the Buddha Ali Salaam, he would fast one day and break his fast one day. So too fast every day is disliked, but too fast continuously meaning that you don't eat or drink at all. You don't eat in the day, you don't eat in the night, then you fast the next day. And you break your fast after the second day Oh, you may even continue for a third day or fourth day. For as long as

00:28:59--> 00:29:41

you're able. This is haram is prohibited. And this is what the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, prohibited in this hadith of Abu hurayrah rhodiola. One at the beginning of Islam, from this ruling was made to abrogate but at the beginning of Islam. The ruling was that if a person came and at the time of mothering they forgot to eat or drink and the time of Muslim had passed on, then they weren't allowed to drink they would have to do resolve. They weren't allowed to drink until the next days if thought. So for example, if a person woke up, they had this whole meal they fasted today. Most of the time they forgot to eat or drink. Maybe they were busy, maybe they fell asleep whatever

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

happened. They forgot to eat or drink the time of monitoring finished a shark came in. Now they're not allowed to eat or drink until the next phase if thought whereas if they had eaten or drunk at the time of Muslim, then they could continue to eat and drink as normal until further until the support until the next day. This

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

was at the beginning of Islam It was later abrogated. And it was abrogated. And one of the reasons why it was abrogated, because it was reported that one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a man who worked in hard manual labor, he had a very difficult day of hard work. And he was fasting. It was in the month of Ramadan. And he came back home just before the time of modeling. And so his wife went to prepare food for thought. And he was so tired because of the day's hard work that he fell asleep. By the time she had finished cooking and come to him, the time of Margaret had finished.

00:30:35--> 00:31:14

And so she saw that he had slept, he hadn't broken his fast, maybe she left some data, some water with him, they're gonna eat later on. By the time she returned, he hadn't woken up, he hadn't eaten or drunk. And so the time had elapsed. And so she became more worried for him. Because next day, he would have to go and work again. And his work was very difficult. And so the next day he woke up, he went to work and during the day he fainted. During the day he fainted, because of obviously dehydration he had eaten, hadn't drunk. And so when this issue was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is after this, that this ruling was abrogated. And so now a person is allowed to eat

00:31:14--> 00:31:53

or drink any time after modem so the sun obviously, is that you break your fast straightaway. But even if you want to for whatever reason, and a shark came in, or later on, you broke your fast it would still be allowed. My ears still allowed you're allowed to eat or drink now, but this was a Mr. However we saw is different we saw is where you're willingly not eating or drink. It's not because you've forgotten or you haven't slept is you don't eat or drink. This is the type of result. So they said O Messenger of Allah, unique result. You don't eat and drink for day after day after day. And so the profits on the long run he was sending them said he you commit me which one of you is like

00:31:53--> 00:32:33

me, for indeed when I sleep, Allah gives me nourishment, he feeds me and he drinks it gives me something to drink. The scholars of Islam different over this issue. They agreed by the way that we style is, or many of them said that we saw is from the Hassan eras from the special attributes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning that it is allowed for him, not allowed for anyone else. So this was something which the prophets of Salaam would do. But he said as clearly he said in this Hadith, au Committee, which one of you is like me, meaning that this is something specific to him, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at CERN and things that were specific to him like

00:32:33--> 00:33:12

marrying more than four wives, as everyone knows, this is something specific to him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam So likewise, this type of fast and then he said, For indeed, my Lord gives me food and drink, he sustains me. The scholars different over this is this physical food or drink? Meaning that Allah feeds him and gives them something to drink? Maybe not in the in the conventional sense, but Allah still gives him something to eat and drink, meaning it is a miracle of the profits on the long run, he will sell them or does he mean by this food and drink spiritual and sustenance, that Allah is sustaining him with spiritual sustenance, meaning that through his, through his prayer,

00:33:13--> 00:33:49

through the huddle through spirit of the Quran, recitation of the Quran, through his connection with Allah is giving him strength, he's sustaining him, it is like food and drink, or better than food and drink. And many of the scholars went to the second opinion that it is a spiritual type of sustenance. Because otherwise, the Hadith wouldn't make sense. If it was physical food and drink. They said, O Messenger of Allah, how is it that you do it then he said, because I am different. Allah is the one who will give me food and drink. And he doesn't mean normal food and drink, you mean sustenance. But it will be a spiritual type of provision, and sustenance. And this was

00:33:49--> 00:34:27

something for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So then, when they refused, some of the companions refused to stop this type of bizarre, because they saw that the prophets of Salaam was doing it. So he told them to do this for one day, meaning continuously fast, don't eat or drink, then on the second day, he continued to tell them to do that as well. And then on the third day, they saw the moon, meaning the month had finished, Ramadan is over. So he said to them, that we're not for this month, I would have continued to make you continuously fast until you learn the lesson because sooner or later, they would have to take on food or drink. But it's impossible for someone

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

to fast like that forever. Sooner or later, they would have learned a lesson. So some of the scholars and this is the end of the Hadith. So the prophet SAW Selim said that I would have taught you a lesson had not the moon come out. So some of the scholars said based upon this, that if a person is able to make this kind of fasting for them, it is allowed, because the prophets of Salaam allowed some of his companions to do it. But the stronger opinion and Allah knows best is that it is not allowed. Because even in this Hadith, the Prophet Solomon to teach them a lesson, why they shouldn't do it. And so it is something that

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

It shouldn't be done and it is something which a person should abstain from this type of fasting and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

And is number 551

00:35:11--> 00:35:14

wannabe hora de la one.

00:35:15--> 00:35:57

Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Alameda toda zurriola malaby will Jan felicetti learn how to configure your Dharma masaba Raja one Buddha Buddha would love Allah and the authority of avoori rhodiola one who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever doesn't leave false testimony, and acting upon that and acting out of ignorance than the law has no need for him to leave his food and drink. And this is collected by Al Bukhari and a Buddha award. And it is the wording of a Buddha Buddha and obviously the Hadith is authentic and it is a very famous Hadith. And that is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ibrahim Allah is now going to go on to

00:35:57--> 00:36:41

after is mentioned the issues of estarland support from the eighth onwards, he's not going to speak about the issues that break your fast, the issues that will invalidate and break your fast. But he begins with this hadith first. So it doesn't mention eating or drinking or some of the other issues. He begins with this Heidi first, because this had it even though it is an authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is done out of Marbella, to emphasize the evilness of this act at any time. But even more so was the person is fasting even more so in the month of Ramadan. However, by each man, by consensus of the scholars, it doesn't break the fast. So even though the

00:36:41--> 00:37:10

prophet SAW Selim worded the Hadith very, very harshly, to show how evil this action is in a state of fasting, and to show how disliked is deplorable, it is in the sight of a lump by Ah, man, by coincidence, it doesn't break the fast the fast is still valid. So he mentioned this hadith as kind of an introduction you mentioned at the beginning of the chapter, so that he doesn't, it's not understood that a break so fast, but he mentioned here to show how serious an issue it is.

00:37:11--> 00:37:52

What this hadith is speaking about is that even though a person may not eat, monster fasting, may not drink may not have marital relations may not do anything else, which breaks the fast. But if that person then goes around in that state of fasting in the month of Ramadan, and they lie, and they steal, and they harm others, and they swear, and they backbite and they slander and they spread false rumors and so on and so forth. Then what is the point of fasting? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this hadith he chose the worst type of line, the worst type of line, because to disobey Allah, either you will do it with your tongue, or you will do it with your limbs, right?

00:37:52--> 00:38:33

This is how you will normally disobey Allah, either your tongue or through your actions, your speech or your actions. The worst type of speech or from the worst types of speech is a zoo, to give false testimony, meaning that you come in front of a judge, or you come in front of a group of people and you swear by Allah, you take an oath by last name, and you lie in the oath. Someone comes in, they say, I swear by Allah, that this is my land. This is my money. This person gave this to me, and he knows he is lying. But he does it to take away the rights of others that land never belong to Him. It's not part of him. It doesn't belong to him, but he makes this false testimony. And why is it so

00:38:33--> 00:39:14

grave in the sight of Allah, because he invokes the name of Allah, He takes an oath by Allah, so to light is haram in Islam, and there is a grave sin anyway. But when you compound that light, you take the name of Allah, and even that name of Allah doesn't shame you gives you no embarrassment, you're not shy of Allah, to use his name, and still lying like this, then that is even more grave. It's like you're challenging the last panel, Darla, I will lie by your name. And so this is the worst type of speech or from the worst types of speech. And that's why the prophet SAW Selim spoke about this here in this hobby. So he gives the worst type of example doesn't mean that anyone that does

00:39:14--> 00:39:55

anything else is okay. But from speech, he will give the worst type of example. So if this is the case of false testimony, then lying backbiting, slandering, swearing, wherever else, all of it is a part of the same issue. And then he said, Well, I'm on eBay and to act upon the testimony. That's action as the first one was speech. Now, action, meaning that a person not only takes makes their false testimony, but then they'll act upon it. So maybe they swear an oath by a law for something which doesn't belong to them. The judge doesn't know any better. So he gives it to them. They act upon that, or maybe they're making that testimony on behalf of someone else. They're the witness,

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

someone else's claiming the land this person falsely taking

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

an oath by Allah and says, I swear by Allah that land belongs to him.

00:40:05--> 00:40:42

So he's not acting it out, even though it's not something for them, he will allow someone else to go and take the land through his false testimony. And so through speech or action disobey Allah azzawajal then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has no need for such people to live off their food or drink, meaning what type of reward will they get? How will the fasting benefit them? How would they come closer to Allah? How will they increase them in taqwa, how they expect their sins for them? If this is the type of fasting even when they're in the state of fasting, they can still lie and slander and backbite and make false testimony and harm others and

00:40:42--> 00:40:47

hurt others and steal their wealth and devour their wealth unlawfully, and so on and so forth.

00:40:48--> 00:41:29

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is giving a very harsh example here. But as I said, even though the Hadith is harsh, it doesn't mean that the fast of that person is invalidated by each mob by consensus, the fast is valid. However, what we need to differentiate between here and what this hadith shows is that there is a differentiation between a valid action and an action which is rewarded. Just because the action is valid doesn't mean that Allah will accept it, meaning it is valid for our purposes. For to our naked eye, it is valid for person comes and they pray, it is valid. That person has paid Salah to Muslim, however, you don't know that intention. Maybe they were

00:41:29--> 00:41:33

praying to show off, will they be rewarded for that, Brianna?

00:41:34--> 00:42:10

No, for person praise to show off to others. There is no reward in that prayer. But is the prayer valid? Yes, in the sense that we wouldn't say to that person go and repeat the prayer, we don't know his intention. He is prayed mongering is ticked off. Right. The obligation is lifted in our eyes, what is between him and Allah is his intention. So whether he gets the reward for that, or no, that is between him and Allah. Likewise, what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about the prayer that you only rewarded for that which you're attentive in. So a person will pray, they will only get half of their prayer, or quarter of the prayer set of the prayer, a person will come and

00:42:10--> 00:42:48

they will have nothing of their prayer. Why? Because in their prayer, they will making the action may be saying the words but their mind was elsewhere, their heart was elsewhere. They didn't have a clue what they were doing. And so therefore, the action is still valid, that person has prayed. However, will he be rewarded, that is between him and allow but there are a lot accepts those beads is between them and a lot of zolgensma that's why accepting the deed or having the deed accepted by Allah is something which is in itself, something that you should be fearful of. And that's why the companions would say that if I knew that Allah would want to accept only one of my deeds, I would

00:42:48--> 00:43:27

place all of my trust in that one deed. Why? Because Allah says in the Quran, in Nehemiah Taco Bell, Allahu Allah only accepts from the pious, meaning that you have to do more than just the simple actions and words. Likewise, here, a person fasts in the month of Ramadan, we took off the fast they fasted. However, if during that day, they were lying and slandering and backbiting and so on, does it mean that Allah will reward them? And that's why the prophet SAW Selim said, Allah doesn't need them to live off that foot and a lot doesn't need that type of fast, where a person comes, and they fast, but they have no benefits for the fast Allah doesn't need us to do him any favors, just like a

00:43:27--> 00:44:03

person if they go for Hajj, but during that Hajj trip, they're arrogant, and they're proud, and they harm others and the others, why does ilani that type of hunch? Why does alarm need someone to sacrifice that animal to him, if all is going to lead to is the arrogance and pride and sinning and disobeying a large religion. So the same thing here, the prophet SAW, Selim is saying that a lion doesn't need this type of fast meaning that the person will fast you will be valid from our eyes. But a lot of zealots will not accept that type of fat loss panel, Tyler will not accept that type of fast on Yom Okayama. And there will be no reward for that individual.

00:44:04--> 00:44:34

So and that's why the profits are lower, and he will send them also mentioned that if a person comes and they fast, then let them not commit any lewd act any sin, let them all do any harm. And if someone comes and they harm them, or they swear at them, then they should say in the Solomon new site, I am fasting, I am fasting. So even if someone else begins and starts, you don't reciprocate, you don't respond in kind, but you're fasting. So inshallah we will conclude and Bismillahi tala, the next

00:44:35--> 00:44:52

lesson will be on the ninth of May. So I'm going to take couple of weeks off, and then a shallot the next lesson will be on the Wednesday on the ninth of may and Sharla will do the normal Wednesday and Thursday as well. That will be the ninth of May. So that's in three weeks time. A long time either of any questions.

00:44:54--> 00:44:57

Yeah, normally it's like the first one that you hear.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

So the first one and they may be like

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

Wouldn't said we made the movie like a few seconds of difference. And this is like one of the issues with the original spawners have made as well. The for them was in himself. Should he begin by breaking this fast first? Or should he make the alarm first, some of this policy should break his breakfast fast first then make the alarm based on the Hadith. And others said no, because the benefit for everyone else to make the other outweighs his personal benefit. And so he begins with the other one, and then he breaks his fast, and so that's fine. So most, maybe you have a bit of delay, maybe the Muslims eating grain, and then like it makes the other Muslim, maybe the Muslim

00:45:36--> 00:45:42

won't not, you tend to make that advanced straightaway, and then he'll break as fast. So that's why you have some discrepancy in the models best.

00:45:43--> 00:46:19

What we have in this country is different from what you have in a Muslim country. If you go to a Muslim country, the Alon is given at the beginning of the time of prayer. So just say first result for 19 am, they will give the Atlanta for 19 am, right, that actually there's no start time the laundromat and there is only the advan time and then the prayer. And then we'll always be at the start time. However, in this country, what we have is we have a start time, which is when the time of prayer begins. But the geometric time might be a lot later. And so the other will be normally 10 minutes before the geometric time. Right and so we do it differently. That's why what you see that

00:46:19--> 00:46:29

is end of support, stroke start of fragile time is the same. so fragile has begun. The fact that we give that non slight delay to the disorder fragile is a different issue.

00:46:31--> 00:46:33

Okay, so I think it is the

00:46:47--> 00:46:48


00:46:50--> 00:46:53
