Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam. Ala Rasulillah Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:07 --> 00:00:21

Brenton Sisters of course we're going to talk about Ramadan reminders Elisha Allah Allah. I'm going to leave a lot of space for you to ask questions. So I'm just going to do some reminders of Ramadan main points so we can get into the spirit and share Allah.

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

First and foremost.

00:00:26 --> 00:00:29

I want to start by explaining

00:00:30 --> 00:00:34

what is the purpose of fasting Ramadan.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:41

And as an introduction, I'm going to speak about three purposes. Two of them

00:00:42 --> 00:00:46

spiritual and one of them is worldly.

00:00:47 --> 00:01:30

So the first purpose why we fasted Ramadan while we fast as Muslims has got to do with taqwa in order to increase our spirituality, our connection with Allah. Our Taqwa means protection, protecting yourself from everything that is wrong and displeasing to Allah spawn Island, and finding a closeness to him, in your soul, in your spirit in your enough's in your heart. So the first thing and the most important thing is spiritual increase. The second reason we foster Ramadan is that it is a school each year to remind us about improving our character,

00:01:31 --> 00:01:37

strength, strengthening our control over following our desires and temptations.

00:01:39 --> 00:02:01

And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I can guarantee a place in the heart of paradise for those who have excelled in a good character. And the third reason we fast is also a benefit. But it's a worldly benefit, which is health and benefit to your health.

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

The benefit of the health is not the primary goal.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:44

Because you can do a whole lot of things that are good for your health. But your intention should not be fasting for health reasons that's wrong. We first because of spiritual reasons because of our character and improving ourselves and working for our hereafter. But there is nothing which Allah subhanaw taala commands us to do or prohibits us from doing except that he always has a benefit for us in this world as well. In our livelihood, in everything about our life, our well being our welfare, our physical, mental, and spiritual benefit insha Allah who died.

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

So let us begin in sha Allah with the first aspect.

00:02:51 --> 00:03:08

You will know the verse in the Quran in surah Al Baqarah, what Allah Subhana Allah said, yeah, in your hand levena Man will go diva Allah equal Musa Yeah, who can quote diva, then the enemy caught in a column now that

00:03:12 --> 00:03:32

you have believed, fasting has been prescribed upon you as it was prescribed on those communities before you in order or in the hope that you may receive or attain piety, righteousness, closeness to Allah, fear of God in order to attain that, in the hope of attaining that.

00:03:33 --> 00:04:24

And then Allah is found at the high this is in other verses telling us that they are numbered days a urine and Matador that they just a few days, Allah does know about never commands us to do something that is harmful to us. And people sometimes associate fasting with Han because we need nutrients. But Allah Who created this human being knows not to commend us to do something that is directly harmful to us. That is why Allah also says in the Quran, Furman gern, an income Marie upon our Allah suffer in fact, the two main aim and okra an exemption as for those among you who is sick in the time of fasting Ramadan, if you're sick, you've got a virus, you've got a bacterial infection, you

00:04:24 --> 00:04:34

get to a state where you are truly and honestly fatigued to the point where you can no longer function you're you're vomiting, you're

00:04:35 --> 00:04:59

losing consciousness and awareness. This is a sickness. Allah says if you are in a state of sickness, or you are on a travel, if you are on suffer a trouble the unanimous agreement by all the schools of thought is estimated in kilometers today. About 80 kilometers out and your intention should be for suffer. So you are traveling so

00:05:00 --> 00:05:15

is not for a person who has a daily trip because of their work everyday going and coming back but you have gone as a casual or not a casual sort of a specific designation to go on suffer, you have to go somewhere

00:05:16 --> 00:05:57

once or twice, then you can break your fast. Even if you do suffer throughout Ramadan, you can actually break your fast throughout Ramadan if you're on a designated travel. And it's not a regular daily habit. But in general, you will understand if you are sick and on a travel, then you can make up other days instead of this one, make up the days you're not exempt from them. And then another verse, Allah subhanaw taala also talks about people who are old in age or fragile or frail. He doesn't say Subhana wa at the higher that the elderly are the elderly citizens. It says what Allah Nadina you will play Chornobyl those who are not able to do it, they have a situation and this

00:05:57 --> 00:06:43

covers all types of people who are fragile, frail, weak. So weakness because of a disability, a disease that they have a chronic health condition, chronic means long term health condition, as opposed to acute acute health condition means temporary chronic means you have a long term health problems such as severe diabetes, or some other type of diseases, or sicknesses that will definitely harm you if you fasted elderly person who is very always body is very weak or his or her body is very weak. And they have multiple problems where they need their medication, they need to be hydrated they need to eat and usually we know this from medical advice you go to a doctor

00:06:43 --> 00:07:09

professional you don't go to a chef or an imam or shouldn't an Imam will tell you what did the doctor say. And based on that we say break or continue to some people go to share to all sorts of things they even go to ask about electricity bills, their shirts, they know everything you got to go to the person have the knowledge first Allah Allah decree In Kuntum Allah Tala mon ask those in June with the right knowledge of the question that you're asking if you yourself do not know.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:27

So brothers and sisters, Allah says then finally you're either ma who become a loser when are you ready to become a boss? It is because Allah wants as for you, he does not want hardship for you. So Allah subhanaw taala knows what harms you and what doesn't. So don't you go and put pressure on yourself that is uncalled for.

00:07:29 --> 00:08:09

I make this point deliberately because some Muslims Masha Allah, they love to get closer to Allah and really are diligent on pleasing Allah, however, that diligence brothers and sisters can be to an extreme to the right or extreme to the left. Some people are so diligent on their acts of worship, that they exhaust themselves and they go beyond what Allah and Allah exempted them to do. And they want to be extra worshipping of Allah. And so the shape and sometimes comes that way, and makes you fear Hellfire fear, Forgiveness of Allah fear, His mercy, fear all these things to the point where you start to putting too many restrictions on yourself when it was never meant to be. A lot of

00:08:09 --> 00:08:43

Muslims do that. And their piety then makes them become exhausted. And some of them even stop some of them. They say what's the point anymore because they exhausted themselves. And then there are others who neglect completely. They take things way too easy. And they don't care about asking what breaks my fast what doesn't what brings me close to Allah, whatever, I'll just do things and go with the fluid that is also sinful and a Muslim should not remain like that. You should always try your best to know at least the fundamentals. So a Muslim is balanced and within the boundaries of the deen. So Allah says, Allah wants ease for you, he does not want hardship for you.

00:08:44 --> 00:09:12

And so that he can bestow His blessing upon you when you demand Mehta who is a con. The whole purpose of why he told you to pray and fast is not to cause hardship and pain for you and hunger or thirst, but it is in order to perfect or complete his blessing upon you. What is the blessing? It is the purpose of fasting, the purpose of Salah the spirituality behind it, the purpose behind it, and that is why I'm going to quote to you this amazing, beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said

00:09:14 --> 00:09:24

manlam Nidal Colas zody while I'm alive Well, Ana Libby, whoever in during fasting of Ramadan, does not abstain from lying,

00:09:26 --> 00:09:30

from perpetrating and deceiving from

00:09:31 --> 00:09:39

deception, fraudulent talk and fraudulent behavior, lying behavior, meaning hypocrisy

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

and from acting upon it.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:53

Right, while I'm at Liberty, while jehlen and also sinful behavior, then Allah has no

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

business in just making you

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

get hungry and thirsty. What's the point? What is the point?

00:10:06 --> 00:10:34

So brothers and sisters, this hadith is actually in Sahadi, whoever does not give up false statements, telling lies and evil deeds, and speaking bad words to others, Allah is not in need of his fasting, leaving his food and drink, what's the point? So the purpose of that is something else. The purpose is not to endure pain of hunger and thirst, but to raise your character during that time. So like when you go to the gym and you do resistance exercise,

00:10:35 --> 00:11:21

you shop your muscle, those of you who know how to build muscle or you want to lose weight, you know how to shock your body's reaction. And so the body starts seeing benefit and you start seeing results. But when you think about beyond the pain, you endure, some people don't go to do exercise because it makes them tired and pain and bring them pain no they do it because the results that they're gonna get out of it. That's why you have so many mirrors everybody's looking at themselves, they want to see the results. Same with the first thing, think about the results. And therefore it was also our sell them also said mon Samarra, Madonna, amen. What the Serban will fit on the whole

00:11:21 --> 00:11:31

method, put them in them be in Bukhari and Muslim. He said, Whoever fasts Ramadan, with two goals in mind, number one,

00:11:33 --> 00:12:19

truly believing with this full heart, it's faith in Allah, in that fasting is truly from Allah. Fasting is truly part of face. Fasting is truly a spiritual act and command, believing that Allah subhanaw taala truly would not tell you that without a benefit to you, and that it is it Ward's apart from you, and believing that fasting is a pillar of Islam, believing that fasting will bring you closer to Jannah and away from hellfire. That's called the Amen, you must go into it, believing that what is urban, and also the second goal is looking forward to the rewards and results from it. What is the reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. In in the Hereafter. And in this world, if the

00:12:19 --> 00:12:40

server, what makes a person endure, when you think about what's going to come out of it? What is the result of it all? And just a very simple statement. That's why the Scholars used to say, men lives his his or her life, as if they are in the hereafter. Oh is imagine yourself, you are on the Day of Judgment, if you believe in it, right? And this is this is why it's only for people who believe

00:12:41 --> 00:13:14

these people who don't believe in the dim Quran, they're not going to see that they're going to say, What's this nonsense? Because they're thinking in terms of the narrow, temporary boundaries of this life, which they see. And that's it, there's nothing beyond it? Well, if you don't think anything beyond that, you don't believe in it. Just you know, don't even listen to these people. These people are not thinking beyond that. They're just thinking about the health benefit. Is it beneficial. Let's look at the articles that could look at the studies. That's what doctor said, now go by that, let's look at it, they really does help me with my anger if it doesn't, and that is why with faith

00:13:14 --> 00:13:20

and belief, your fasting becomes something different. A lot of people who told me that they're going to convert or if you'd like the word revert to Islam.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:54

Before they do it, they're always asking about, you know, fasting Ramadan, and mashallah some of them are so prepared. And some of them try to fast before they embrace Islam. They want to try it out. But you see, it's good to practice from a physical point of view. But it is never ever the same. Once you embrace Islam, say your shahada and your full belief is intact, and you're convinced with it and you're with it. Fasting suddenly takes on another whole new world for you. Everything about what dates your Salah is for a different reason, your fasting your has everything means differently now.

00:13:55 --> 00:14:15

And really, those who convert to Islam really know exactly what I mean. Ask them, they will teach us a thing or two, about how the heart changes or somebody who's had a bad life before a sinful life and suddenly they've repented to Allah, suddenly fasting and solid takes on a different meaning to them. Do you understand what I'm saying? I'm sure a lot of us have been through that.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:29

What does it also says that I'm saying he says a web of fast Ramadan out of pure faith and belief propagation and anticipation for the reward which they believe in. All of their sins which they have done to this point will be forgiven.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:59

All of them will be forgiven. Which type of sins they're all the minor sins. As for the major sins, they require exclusive repentance. You have to stop the major sins with what I had to talk about this last time a lecture it's on YouTube my YouTube page, it's got the about major sins and minor sins or any other page that humbly no you trust, qualified scholar to talk about it, then go for it. So brothers and sisters, so therefore

00:15:00 --> 00:15:30

rather conditions of the promised forgiveness from Allah to get the full reward and to be forgiven in Ramadan. Number one, your faith. Number two sincerity seeking Allah's pleasure and reward. If you're not sincere, you're not going to be anticipating the rewards. And so what's that for? Well, I get his hunger and tiredness. And number three, avoiding major sins, three conditions who can say them to me? First condition to receive the forgiveness and the full reward of fasting. Number one, clear faith. Number two,

00:15:31 --> 00:15:39

sincerity anticipating the reward from Allah because if you do if you don't believe in the hereafter, you're going to have sincerity and number three, avoiding

00:15:40 --> 00:15:49

avoiding major since avoided, do these three and avoid the major sins and Ramadan and you will be in sha Allah among those who goes under the

00:15:50 --> 00:15:59

you will be a candidate. All right to receive Allah's forgiveness and the reward. What about the minuses?

00:16:00 --> 00:16:05

The minuses get washed away. The Prophet peace be upon him said.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:22

You will five daily prayers from prayer to prayer and you'll zoom on Friday to Friday, and Ramadan. Ramadan are expiate as they wash away. All the sin is the minor sins that occurred in between them.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:29

Either standard will cover on condition that you avoid the major sins.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:31

The hadith is insane Muslim.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:40

However, the minuses we have to work on them. But also Assam describes some of the minor sins He says

00:16:42 --> 00:16:55

in her how he says a man or even a woman because when it was a man in his woman as well, who in their family, they say words they shouldn't have said they acted in certain ways towards their husband or their wife or their children

00:16:56 --> 00:17:16

or their parents. They shouldn't have said minor things that are temporary. Or they said something that shouldn't have said to their neighbor or they harmed their neighbor in some way, which is minor examples like that. He said the prayers and the fasting annual sadaqa the charity that you give wipes them away. They are things that don't stay for long

00:17:18 --> 00:17:26

as four major things stealing theft, drinking alcohol drugs, while other Binna Zina adultery fornication.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:42

Riba usury usury from the bank's interest. When I'm talking about people who are in a severe case of necessity, by the way, talking about people who casually just take it without no care.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:56

That's another topic or people who accuse others of heinous crimes, putting their life in turmoil. These are all signs These are major sins which a person needs to repent from.

00:17:57 --> 00:17:58

Moving on brothers and sisters.

00:18:00 --> 00:18:44

A lot of people ask me in Ramadan fasting, are the good deeds multiplied. So instead of one, and Ramadan is at like 1000. So let's say I tell the truth, Allah gives you a good deed. Does that mean in Ramadan, I get 1000 Good deeds. For example, if I pray Salah Vogel and Ramadan, if I pray Salah to load that same Salah if it is equal to 27, is it now equal to 207? What does it mean? The answer to that brothers and sisters is this throughout the entire year, Allah subhanho wa Taala always multiplies in number your good deeds, you can do at any any time of the year, not just in Ramadan.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:53

Whether in Ramadan, or outside of Ramadan, Allah looks at your intentions, looks at your sincerity, looks at how well you performed that good deed.

00:18:54 --> 00:19:04

And he will give each individual based on what they deserve and multiply it so it could be for me, that one salad I did yesterday, could equal 100.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:18

For the brother over here, that same style that could equal 1000. Allah looks into our hearts and how well we did it. And he multiplies for people differently, could be a small deed that I do.

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

Sorry, it could be a big deed that I do and a small day this brother does my big deed will equal to his small deed based on his intention and his how he did it and his anticipation of Allah's reward and so on on many factors. Same with Ramadan, the good deeds do not automatically get multiplied in number because there is no there's actually no text in the Quran and Sharia which, which tells you that, but I'll tell you what does happen in Ramadan. And Ramadan, definitely. The text show us that the good deed is more weighty. It's heavier, it means a lot more to Allah. It means a lot more. So it's like looking at currencies. Let's let's talk about

00:20:00 --> 00:20:05

In the way that we can understand some currencies, you can have a million of it.

00:20:07 --> 00:20:14

But because of the country's economic situation, that million could equal in Australian dollars, what $1

00:20:15 --> 00:20:33

Or you can have a euro. And in that same country, one euro equals 10 million of that currency. So the weight of what that means, that's the same in Ramadan. If you think of it in currency wise, it's not more, but it's worth more.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:39

Same as when you do a good deed in harsh and misery, the Nabawi you pray that Your deed is worth one.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:47

So now we established the good deeds are multiplied depending on your intention, not just because of the fact it's Ramadan.

00:20:49 --> 00:21:01

Not because of the fact that it's Ramadan, you could do a good deed and not really, you're not you're not really looking forward to Ramadan, you're not really anticipating the reward and Eman, that good date means it doesn't really have much weight.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

So

00:21:04 --> 00:21:15

if the good days are more serious and weighty and have more value, than the sins also are more serious. Did you know there are people who enter Ramadan

00:21:16 --> 00:21:51

and exit Ramadan and their entire sins are forgiven and the Eman is higher and the value of their deeds is heavier than the mountains and the sky is put together. And some of them they enter Ramadan and guess what happens to them? It becomes a cause for them to enter Hellfire or get closer to hellfire. When have you ever been there? You either go this way or that way? Which one do you want? It's a pathway for boasts some people use Ramadan and they do over a major sin and they waste their time and they go and do all sorts of terrible things especially after taraweeh they think they can let their hair down and they spend it in places that earn the more haram and more sins. You think to

00:21:51 --> 00:21:55

yourself what what is this person really done for his Ramadan over Ramadan.

00:21:56 --> 00:22:00

Also the good deeds, it's also the sins that are not multiplied

00:22:02 --> 00:22:10

anytime during the year so the sins are not multiplied the good deeds and on multiple of the good deeds are heavier in value and the sins are heavier in seriousness.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:42

Let's look at some virtues. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most giving in Ramadan. And giving does not only mean money, giving means from anything of yourself, your time, your goodness, your kindness, your care, your forgiveness, your mercy, your service, your smile, your attention to someone. You're bringing of happiness to someone helping someone relieve their pain, their worries, their stress, being there for someone

00:22:44 --> 00:23:29

sharing food sharing goodness, you lend someone money, they're in strife, they say please give me more time you give them more time. All this is called giving. Also in worship, you do more solid, you do more Quran you do more thicker, you do more sadaqa you do more do ah all of this is called giving rasa salaam can Azure the Azure Domain Azure, Azure AD Omega corn free Ramadan, I showed that Anna and the rest of the companies is to say, let's also assume was the most giving in Ramadan. This is now what giving minutes, not just money, all of what I just mentioned. So that means everyone has an opportunity to give whether you are rich or poor, strong or weak in authority or not everybody

00:23:29 --> 00:23:31

has a way of giving.

00:23:32 --> 00:24:05

And there are five main activities of worship in Ramadan that we do five, you can do more, but these are the minimum you're ready for them. Number one, extra prayers. You might be just doing the five compulsory prayers right now. Why don't you go and add the Sunless. There are 12 Sooners in the day that are unanimously agreed upon if you follow a particular school of thought the 100 feet and there's also another four in their opinion doesn't matter for before us or they say so the sun has to before pleasure for before level

00:24:06 --> 00:24:07

two after zone

00:24:08 --> 00:24:09

two after maghrib.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:15

Two after Aisha How many is that? 12

00:24:16 --> 00:24:32

and four before so before the answer is voluntary. At least add some voluntary Salat, there is the dollhouse Allah, the Doha solid, who knows where it's from? When it's Doha Salette? from when to when? Anyone know when is Doha? Salah

00:24:33 --> 00:24:37

sunrise, okay, it's called Doha Dawn, but when is it from?

00:24:39 --> 00:24:43

About 15 minutes after sunrise? Yep, till about

00:24:44 --> 00:24:49

about 1010 or 15 mins before before? That's correct. But all this time.

00:24:50 --> 00:25:00

We wanted to go off and my friend said to me, after fajr and the sun had risen, he says, Have you given sadaqa on behalf of all your joints of your body?

00:25:00 --> 00:25:20

I said What should is 360 Something joints in my body that to give sadaqa and then I remembered he goes, you'll do have you pray dear to her, because the prophets Allah Selim said everyday a person should give a sadaqa a good deed on behalf of every joint of their body. And he said, One salah of the Doha, Torah cause of the Doha pray, covers all that

00:25:21 --> 00:25:22

covers all that

00:25:24 --> 00:26:12

do extra zikr as they occur is the second thing that could have missed the remembrance of Allah. You got, I always say this download an app called fortresses of Muslim you got so many thicker words in there, that you say in different times of the day, increase them and say then number three, and probably I should have put this as number two, and that is reciting and living with the Quran. Ramadan is the month of the Quran, it is called Shadow Quran. In Ramadan Quran first was revealed in Ramadan and Lena to cover the Night of Power the Quran was released from no Helma for the Preserved Tablet and given to the angels and then sent down to us bit by bit over 20 over 26 over how long 20

00:26:12 --> 00:26:21

to 23 years. So the Quran was first revealed Ramadan and every Ramadan Gibreel Allah you Salam would descend and recite

00:26:22 --> 00:26:57

the Quran to the Rosa Salam and get him to recite it so you can listen to it, test him or every single Ramadan until the last Ramadan rasa Selim lived and he said I see my desk nearing for Jabril had never recited the Quran to me in Ramadan more than once except now a reciting twice to make sure and this I see it nearing my death. And really that was Russell's awesome the year in which he passed away superlatives in the Quran. In the month of Ramadan is the Quran. Some people know how to recite the Quran perfectly.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:25

Some people can recite it with difficulty. Others they stutter a lot with even more difficulty, and there are others who don't even know how to recite, even put a word together or a sentence together. And some of them don't know at all. So every person at their level, here's what I'm going to advise you brothers and sisters, those who recite very well you are expected to finish the Quran, at least once during Ramadan.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:55

Those who recited somewhat well try to get to the whole of it if you can, those who cannot for various reasons. Try your best, you know, aim for certain sources or chapters to finish those who struggle with it, do whatever you can. The Prophet peace be upon him said the person who recited the Quran and finds it and struggles with reciting it. They have doubled the normal reward because of your effort.

00:27:56 --> 00:28:36

And this is an encouragement to learn how to read the Quran better. As for those who are say new to Islam don't know Arabic they haven't had the opportunity again you are not out of the picture. You can memorize even and Fatiha and recite that by heart if you know a short Surah recite it by heart you know if you recycled all Allahu Ahad three times it equals the entire Quran for example. So recite what you can Why don't you recite and Fatiha that's the only one you know Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen er of mana Rahim 100 times during the day. That's a lot of letters. And for every letter that you recite, you get 10 100 and Allah Ross was awesome said to Allah, you'll die fully

00:28:36 --> 00:29:04

May Allah, Allah will increase a multiple of a wibit He wills you recite it with your heart with it, you get 70 up to 70 up to 10 up to up sorry, from 10 up to 70 has a net for every letter I suppose as I've said I am not saying Elif LAN mean is one letter I am saying literally Elif is a letter lamb is a letter means a letter. So if you say Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. Who could do the calculations how many letters there are in just that one verse.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:48

Allah write a lot of letters. For the sake of time, if you were to calculate how many litres they're in, multiply that by 10 minimum, and that is the reward of saying it. And the last one that I may give you a multiples of 270 for each letter, can you imagine just reciting the Quran in itself even if what you have memorized in itself is an act of worship even if you don't understand what you're reciting. But of course, grab a good translation of the meaning of the Quran one that I recommend this module this female Quran, or anyone that tickles your fancy or you can relate to a very well recited and insha Allah. It will help you the most important thing brothers and sisters you find a

00:29:48 --> 00:29:59

verse that you can relate to and understand if it's a command but a prohibition or an advice try to practice that this Ramadan for example, you're reading from certain pleasure rock, whether you are reading the translation of the meaning and it says

00:30:00 --> 00:30:38

And he says, Yeah, you had let the manager Tony Ibuka zero minute one. Oh, you who have believed avoid much of your speculations and suspicions about others. Meaning don't follow rumors and speculations. Don't even say to yourself, Man, I'm so experienced. I know when someone says something what it means and I know this person don't do that. Allah says, avoid much of your suspicions. Even some of your suspicions are sinful. So suspecting someone of something keep it for yourself. Don't act on it. And don't talk so this is a knock around for example, are you going to do that in Ramadan? For example? Busy yourself with worship you healthy stop looking at people look at

00:30:38 --> 00:31:11

yourself. That's the thing of about Ramadan, focusing on yourself. Curiosity trying to find out secrets and private affairs of other people who's got you know, what's what's that couple doing? I wonder how they live their life. I wonder this I wonder that stuff must be about people's affairs and worry about your own. These are some things to increase in Ramadan, maybe you want to work on your tongue, this Ramadan Insha Allah, I'm gonna avoid the gossip that I usually do, I'm going to avoid lying because every time I talk to someone about this low self esteem, you might say to yourself, I want to always talk about myself. So these are the types of things number four is

00:31:11 --> 00:31:23

sadaqa, giving charity, and number five, general character I'm sorry, repeat, then five main activity, Ramadan, extra praise, or earn the zikr sadaqa improving your character.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:28

My brothers and sisters

00:31:32 --> 00:31:35

Ramadan, and fasting

00:31:36 --> 00:31:38

has an effect on some people more than others.

00:31:40 --> 00:31:47

Some people come out of the school, we call it a school of Ramadan is training

00:31:49 --> 00:31:58

a bit of a person in their character. Even if they've improved on one or two things, others come out with less, and then the others with nothing.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:02

And I'll tell you something that insists us

00:32:04 --> 00:32:42

from our experience, I can't refer to any particular scientific articles about it. But I have Subhanallah went online and found a plethora of amazing literature and studies that have been done about dry fasting. Dry fasting is what we do and that it means when you don't even drink water. That's called dry fasting from Dawn from when Fisher first arrives until sunset. It's called dry fasting, I read a plethora of literature, masha Allah, and I always encourage my brothers and sisters really to become more scientifically literate.

00:32:43 --> 00:33:05

seen so many failures online, with some of our Muslims go out in the open. And they face people who know their science and try to bring verses of the Quran. And things about fasting when they haven't really studied it. They don't know really what the scientific approach now and I say to them, and they face people who know their science and they get actually,

00:33:06 --> 00:33:25

you know, they lose, they think they won. But when I'm listening, I say that you really stuffed up that you got to really review. I wish Muslims can become more scientifically literate, because we live in a world like that today. And if you can't at least don't try to talk about it unless you know it or ask anyway.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:32

Lots of literature was done about the emotional and spiritual benefits of fasting.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:44

And the ones I go for the ones that are peer reviewed, I don't know if you know what that means peer reviewed, they're among the strongest, or at least the most

00:33:46 --> 00:33:52

trusted, or these are the ones that scientists go for peer reviewed studies.

00:33:53 --> 00:33:54

And

00:33:55 --> 00:34:00

they're still studies about emotional intelligence, which really got my attention,

00:34:01 --> 00:34:06

emotions, and I will call them also spiritual intelligence if you put your Eman with it.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:25

And when you go through Ramadan experiences in the beginning, you do feel fatigued. That's because the body is shocked. And so your blood pressure goes down, especially if you're not drinking sugar, it's a hot day, your blood sugar goes down. And so you do get a headache as a result of lack of glucose, lack of sugar

00:34:26 --> 00:34:36

to three days, four days your body starts to adapt. When he adapts, things start changing in your body. Your immune system starts to work.

00:34:38 --> 00:34:57

And so it starts to develop itself. And when your immune system develops itself, that second stage, you also still feel a little bit of tiredness. But the headache starts to go away so it's less. In the third stage your immune system has now begun the attack the attack on your toxins that are in your inside your body,

00:34:58 --> 00:35:00

such as bacteria

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

readouts left behind microbes, even viruses that are left behind something called

00:35:08 --> 00:35:28

cytokines, I don't know if you know what that is, but they are, you know, chemicals that your immune system that is a message with your immune system, when it goes to fight off infections in your body, but then they stay there and they become toxic and becomes chronic, the immune system starts to eat those away, and with your fasting, you're starving them as well. So you go through

00:35:29 --> 00:36:11

this process where your body starts to adapt Subhanallah by about by about the last 10 days of Ramadan, your body is so adapt to it, to fasting, your energy levels balanced out, and you feel you can do more. Through our experience, we'll see and obviously it's different from every person to another, your health situation, when that last 10 days come What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say to do? Increase or Decrease? Increase? And Allah knows and his messengers, Allah, Selim knows that the body has adapted now. And the energy levels are a little bit better. And so the last 10 Nights, get yourself into it. And really do see that happening with us at Hamdulillah.

00:36:12 --> 00:36:19

And that's why I think why at the end of the 10 Nights, our energy levels are better. So we go back to fighting about them inside.

00:36:20 --> 00:36:53

And before Ramadan, our energies are high, we fight about them inciting, and then we think, okay, it's depleted, we're tired with fatigue. And when you're fatigued, your emotional intelligence is better why, if you do do it for the, for the, for the right reasons, you start to train yourself, you know, the fight you had with your wife, or with your husband, or with your children, or with your parents, or with your neighbor, or with that person who cut you off on the street, or that person who's not moving and you want to beat your heart and swear at them, or at the shopping center carts are in front of you, you know, in Ramadan, that's going to increase, especially in the first

00:36:53 --> 00:36:54

few days.

00:36:55 --> 00:36:57

Especially when,

00:36:58 --> 00:37:10

when the anxiety hits right before Mother's Day, and you're still out. And as traffic, it's like something's really terribly going to go wrong if you don't make it exactly by mother if to have that first bite, and SubhanAllah.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:47

But if you can change that mindset a little bit and prepare yourself from now and say, You know what, see what I do that I looked at last time, these are the things I was doing wrong, this time, I am not going to lose myself, I am not going to lose my patience. If I'm late 24. If my family made me late, or whatever, I'm going to take my time, and I'm going to have maybe a bottle of water in my car or a couple of dates, or break my fast simply insha Allah eight. Now I'm going to tell you something, brother and sisters, your emotional intelligence starts getting better and stronger, and you have stronger control over yourself, if you can resist and get better while you are fasting.

00:37:47 --> 00:38:00

Just like when you shop your muscle it grows, because you got used to strong resistance. And he gets stronger after that, and how much? How proud do you feel about yourself and saying with your character in sha Allah Jota

00:38:02 --> 00:38:39

my brothers and sisters, I go on to the health benefits and then your questions. Now as you know, my background is science. So I like talking about the scientific aspects. And the reason why I want to talk about it is because we do live in a western society. And because on we're on social media a lot now there are a lot of non Muslims and people who try to find problems in Islam and Ramadan and fasting and say you people are crazy. Look at you, you fast and get dehydrated. Surely, that's bad. This is silly to fast. But then we look and we think Hold on a minute. There are more than 1 billion there are more than one nearly 2 billion Muslims around the world, at least three quarters of them

00:38:39 --> 00:39:15

fast every year. And we've been doing it for 1400 years. Come on, you know, where are the people who are dying of fasting Where are the people who are getting dehydrated and ending up in the graves. Now we don't need these things Tamla Muslims are thriving. So it's not fasting. It's other factors. So it's a pretty silly response for someone to say something without thought. So let's have a look at some of the peer reviewed literature and studies that we found. And I like taking information if you want from a place called NCBI, which is the National Center for Biotechnology Information also from Science Direct, which is a peer reviewed peer reviewed literature. And I found many articles

00:39:15 --> 00:39:34

one is called dawn to dusk, dry fasting decreases circulating inflammatory cytokines which are pro inflammations in subjects with increased body mass index body mass index. BMI is just another word for a measurement of how much fat you have and how much low fat you have.

00:39:36 --> 00:39:43

That may lead to health problems. And this is peer reviewed in 2024. So you know people are talking about this, you got another one which

00:39:44 --> 00:39:59

says the effects of daytime dry fasting on hydration glucose metabolism, and all of them concluded that there is no harm on the person from dehydrate from any effects of dehydration because of fasting. Every single one of these articles said something good about it humble enough.

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

And I'll tell you what.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:03

This is interesting.

00:40:04 --> 00:40:16

Brothers Sisters if you want to have a good health benefit, follow the Sunnah. Follow the Sunnah Wallah head is amazing and literature about it is amazing number one plus also I said I'm told you to spend time in Sephora

00:40:18 --> 00:41:04

and he said something he said in the Sahel for in Ephesus authority Baraka have your cell phone. So, what is the time that you eat before what? Before Fisher not at 1am later later before Fisher and he said a theosophy will delay your So, for some people take a literally they say delay myself out to the last minute before the other, no is saying delay as in take your time wake up earlier but do it towards the end like closer to Fisher and the Sahara who have a good support for in Ephesus authority Baraka in Sephora there is baraka now in English we say Baraka is what blessings but the meaning of the word literally in Arabic Baraka means when something yet broke, you're broke means it

00:41:04 --> 00:41:39

lasts, it stays, what stays in other words, perhaps so for for encircled, there is a lasting good effect that stays with you. And that is why we say donate from your wealth we'll have Baraka earn your wealth in hallelujah has Baraka marry in Halal your marriage will have Baraka, what does Baraka mean? It means the goodness of it stays and lasts. It doesn't mean Allah gives you more money doesn't mean Allah makes you a Superman. No, it means whatever goodness is in it will last, it won't run out very quickly. So in Sofia loves what will last

00:41:40 --> 00:41:47

your house in Sephora, but you got to have good support. You got to avoid the oily stuff.

00:41:48 --> 00:41:54

The fried stuffed, you've got to avoid the sugars, right processed food,

00:41:56 --> 00:41:57

in some food and in the fall.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:04

And that's why some people don't find the health benefits or even the spiritual benefits. Because it's so filled, some don't even have suffered.

00:42:06 --> 00:42:07

It kills them in the day.

00:42:08 --> 00:42:46

And I'll give you a little hint about nutrition experts, you can find this I don't even need to don't take me as a reference, you can look it up it's all over. Excellent nutrition is telling you that if you want hydration to to retain hydration water in your system early in the morning, so we'll say so food, drink water with a pinch of Himalayan salt. If you have Himalayan salt, it's like an orange thing. It's better than the table salt but even table salt, put a little bit on your tongue or put it inside your water. Mix it just a little bit and drink with a little bit of salt. It retains hydration, as opposed to drinks drinking normal water and also electrolytes. So if you don't

00:42:46 --> 00:43:04

know what actualising you can have them in. Okay, have a banana for example. Also have some potatoes have some eggs, these types of fruits, these if you can get your body used to insert food and shot a little healthier and add a thought do the opposite. Don't feel your stomach. Don't break it on fast and processed foods.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:20

Trust me on this one and have a little bit so don't feel your stomach. And also as I'm did say that my Alma is blessed if they hurry up the gift on meaning don't eat too much. And then go to your Salah, pray nicely. Even if you're tempted look, I'll tell you a little trick.

00:43:22 --> 00:43:25

Your feeling of being fooled,

00:43:26 --> 00:43:32

it takes your brain to give that signal completely to your stomach 15 minutes.

00:43:33 --> 00:44:09

So if you're able to eat a little bit, and I would recommend that you eat something good and feeling before you pray your mother, some people that ate the one date or they have a sip of water and they rushed her mother, you're not gonna be able to concentrate well in your mother. Take your time and spend about 510 minutes heating and then go and pray mother most likely in about 15 minutes are not going to be as hungry. And if you eat too much, and then you gotta have your desserts and you gotta have your mind set, have your dessert or even do it you know, we can't be always tempted. But try your best to train yourself not to have too much otherwise defeats the purpose. Some people they do

00:44:09 --> 00:44:18

that and then after a shirt they go and eat more, that's another good way but just eat healthy inshallah as much as you can. So brothers sisters, this is the Buttercup. Finally,

00:44:19 --> 00:44:59

the way that your fasting affects your body is that there are these as I told you, this cells that come out of your immune system, what they do is if they stay long in your body, those cytokines they become inflammatory they they cause inflammation inside your body so toxic and when you fast you you starve them and they die out. So you you actually flush out toxins toxins from your body. The other thing that fasting does for you there's a cell called macrophages, macrophages, so these macrophages what they do is consider them like a rubbish bag. Like the rubbish truck. It comes it's a big cell

00:45:00 --> 00:45:12

And it attacks bacteria, viruses and microbes, and literally takes them and throws them out of your body. They stay in your body for a long time. So it incites them increases in another one that it increases something called

00:45:13 --> 00:45:25

micro Bionz. microbiome is a known name for good bacteria in your body, good bacteria in your body helps regenerate damages in your other cells and in your other organs.

00:45:26 --> 00:45:27

And

00:45:29 --> 00:46:11

they live very long, so you can starve them. And they, they help you against the risk of infection. It also increases the resistance to strip a lot of stress a lot and it's bad for your well being. Did you know that when you fast, it reduces your stress and it helps you to resist stress. I mean, figure that out. Even when you look at our behavior, if you're hungry, you got no energy or time to bother with little things. There are things that when we're when we've eaten, we start making trouble with that and stresses us out when you're hungry. There are imagined remember, how many things do we we can't be bothered with unless you're satisfied. So it has a resistance to stress.

00:46:11 --> 00:46:29

And it also has an anti oxidation, meaning it fights oxidized stuff. What is Aqua did basically unstable molecules inside your body again, that support them toxins, and also called free radicals. They're the stuff that lingers around in your body that does you no good except you except does you harm and

00:46:30 --> 00:47:02

it leads to cell and tissue damage. And what happens is that when you fast you have an anti oxidation, so it kills them off. And finally there's something called Auto Fuji, which is basically when you fast your body recycles itself, the cells die and recycles them and when it recycles them, they become more stronger and more immune and better and that's why you feel yourself revitalized. Now, some people they say to me Well, you know

00:47:04 --> 00:47:45

I don't feel it that much. That's because you haven't fasted, right? Your diet is terrible. In fact, you put on more weight because your diet is terrible number two the Sahaba is used to train fasting before Ramadan cane so that they can pass the headaches and the fatigue and the body's already adapted to fasting so they get the benefits throughout fasting that's why you feel that they've got more energy than us and when you finish Ramadan Autodromo Selim tell you to do try and fast which another six days of show well quickly what is it tell you follow up quickly because your body number one is adapted to already you have the energy you can faster and take advantage of those rewards a

00:47:45 --> 00:48:25

shout out on finally brothers and sisters Ramadan and fasting remember it is about spirituality. It is about connecting with Allah subhanaw taala it's about our worship about improving ourselves our character to be better in sha Allah hooter. Isla and for Eros wa sallam did say when he claimed the member one time and they heard him say the famous Hadith y'all know it? Nein, nein, nein. They said the Miata Salah low? Why did you say I mean three times. He said, you read it, you said and came to me and he made dua for three things. Number one, he said, made his nose be rubbed in dust. In other words, he is truly a loser. Whoever reaches whoever lives to see his parents grow old in age, and

00:48:25 --> 00:49:05

he's still alive. And still. And still, he could not enter Paradise because of them. And number two, a person who My name is mentioned in front of them, and did not make that or not say SallAllahu either you're a sinner or peace be upon him, meaning who am I to them. And number three, a person who enters into Ramadan and Ramadan finishes, and I come out the other side and steal their sins have not been forgiving. So that's a great loser who gets to them? My brothers and sisters I think Insha Allah, all of you, and all of us will have that opportunity. And we're all 100 in the on the right path, and we anticipate to reap the benefits of Ramadan. How there was Salah Juana, Bina

00:49:05 --> 00:49:07

Muhammad why they're early he was like the extra money

00:49:10 --> 00:49:37

I promised you something that if you have questions, but I see that there is only what took about five minutes or 10 minutes. Can we have 10 minutes to the oven? Will will give me another five minutes. Our brothers and sisters you know part of me was deliberate in trying to not give you too much time for questions because some questions could put me in trouble with the Ramadan I know that. Go ahead brother and sisters if you have any questions about fasting Ramadan. No. Yes.

00:49:40 --> 00:49:48

You Srishti he goes to me when's Ramadan? Wallahi I don't know. It's either Sunday. Or Monday. I think.

00:49:51 --> 00:49:52

Yes.

00:49:54 --> 00:49:54

Open

00:49:55 --> 00:49:58

up life a lot boring. Before all

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

So the more creeping

00:50:04 --> 00:50:37

Brother is asking how do you motivate someone who you love to go to the mosque and pray and do good deeds and Ramadan? Okay, all you all you are is a reminder, just mention it to them. And that's it, then you go and let them watch you. Let's hold. Let's also I said LEM was like that less data and bit more safer. You cannot force it upon them in them. And then at the if you're a winner, and a reminder, that's all I think, remind them but with kindness and goodness, and with a smile, and don't pressure them too much, Alice and a new look after yourself, Inshallah, you never know what happens around you just by observing Yes, brother.

00:50:38 --> 00:50:41

And the non

00:50:42 --> 00:51:16

intention. Yeah, there. Look, there are some things I left out because everyone knows them already. So Brother is asking about the intention. The intention for fasting Ramadan is part of the pillar of it being accepted? And it's a good question. Some people misunderstand this. They think that they have to make the intention every night for the next following day. And that if you don't make the intention, then you can't fast No, the intention is done the night before Ramadan. So you make the intention. How do you make the intention?

00:51:18 --> 00:51:36

By having the intention, there's nothing specific, you have to say, there's no particular thought process you have to go through. It's just that you already believe in Ramadan, you intend to fast Ramadan. In fact, the moment you heard about Ramadan, you already have the intention. So all of us right now already have that intention.

00:51:37 --> 00:51:43

The only thing is that we have to maintain that intention and to the night of Ramadan, just maintain it.

00:51:44 --> 00:51:53

So that means not having the intention is almost impossible. You'd have to leave Islam, or you'd have to secretly say I don't even want to fast.

00:51:54 --> 00:52:31

But otherwise, we all have the intention already maintain it until the night before. And that's it, that's for the whole month, you have the intention. You don't have to every night do some ritual. So that's easy. But let's say that you had the intention. And you found that the next day that it was not Ramadan, let's say somehow it was proven to you, nobody cited the crescent, then you break your fast and you intend for the next day. What if you did not intend because nobody fast? Nobody saw the present. And you happen to sleep early because you had work the next day or something? The next day you find out everybody's fasting, but you did not make the intention? What's the answer to that?

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

Fast or not? Fast? Fast? You fast? Why?

00:52:39 --> 00:53:18

Because your intention was if it is Ramadan fasting, in the moment you say the shahada, you already believe in Ramadan. So you did not deliberately not make the intention. You made that intention because of not fasting because you thought it wasn't Ramadan, but if it is, you continue faster. There is a very minor view of some scholars minor, but it's not the majority. And it doesn't have much evidence. It says that fast the day but make it up just in case I say to Islam as easy and the majority of the scholars said no, you just continue to faster so long as you haven't eaten anything in the morning. Otherwise if you hadn't made the intention because you thought it was Ramadan and

00:53:18 --> 00:53:25

then you find that it was Ramadan but you had eaten then it's better to make up that day but you have to continue fasting

00:53:26 --> 00:53:27

and he has

00:53:28 --> 00:53:31

forward Benny to the world in a calm

00:53:33 --> 00:53:43

if somebody that's a good question, if somebody deliberately goes out of their way during Ramadan, to travel 80 kilometers or above just to break their fast that's a sin.

00:53:45 --> 00:53:45

That's haram

00:53:47 --> 00:53:51

because you're trying to beat the system and trying to trick Allah and Allah.

00:53:53 --> 00:53:55

Allah Allah usual rub Allah does is not tried.

00:53:57 --> 00:53:57

Listen,

00:53:59 --> 00:54:01

here is a rule that you can remember

00:54:02 --> 00:54:03

a rule that Scott has told us

00:54:06 --> 00:54:27

man has zhalia avoids lamea shows woman aka Delia Hoshi Jas, the principle is if you do have because you want to make a profit out of it, it's sinful. But if you took money in order to do how then it's permissible

00:54:29 --> 00:54:40

Cena if I went on a trouble 90 Ks in order to break my fast it's harder. But if I went on a trouble because I have to

00:54:41 --> 00:54:51

then I have the exemption of breaking my fast so it comes down to your intention. Not case would it be better to get fast or not fast as champions?

00:54:53 --> 00:54:57

If you intended to go on a travel, just to break your fast

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

yeah

00:55:00 --> 00:55:07

Okay, so if you're actually traveling with the right intention, is it better to break your fast or keep fasting? Well Allah that's a difference of opinion among the scholars.

00:55:09 --> 00:55:45

And Nana we can't say because you don't feel tired or whatever that's all up to you really is we follow textarea we follow what the Quran and Sunnah says. Now if you don't feel tired, a person can be on trouble not feel tired at all. But still got the exemption because Allah Samantha says one can Kumari than our Allah suffered? Some people think that it's actually a good question. Some people do think they say, Well, you know, we travel now in beautiful aeroplanes. We sit in a five star hotel, why should you break your fast? No, no, no, no, that's not what the Quran said. The Quran said whoever is in trouble or is sick, find the Timonium and other days, why do we have to restrict them

00:55:45 --> 00:56:24

make it hard? Allah said, so not there's nothing else also I send them when on travel, and sometimes you will at ease and he broke us fast. There's not a problem at all. So Islam is user it's easy. But if you went on trouble to ad on any case, is it better to break your fast? Well, in the humbly school which I've studied, and the evidence that they say that our schools are Xlm said in Allah, your Hibou and ALLAH SubhanA, Allah loves that he's concessions be taken. So in their in their opinion, based on this hadith, they say, Well, if Allah has given you a concession, use the concession. But then the others, they said, No, if there's no real need, then better not to take the

00:56:24 --> 00:56:31

concession. The bottom line is it's up to you. The bottom line is up to you. Yeah, without getting too technical trouble in

00:56:34 --> 00:57:21

the fifth year, good question. So let's say somebody is terminally ill, or chronically ill, or old and too weak, too fast, you got diabetes, where you need your insulin, you've got a condition where you have to take medication or you're too weak, then what do you do about that you cannot make up those days because you don't know when you're going to be better. Instead, you have to pay a figure for failure, don't arm the Miskin, then you just feed one needy, or poor person per day. So 29 days or 30 days that we're fasting, that person just sends their wealth, their money through a charity organization, to people to feed a poor person for each day. That's it, and the amount of money you

00:57:21 --> 00:57:42

send. So the idea is to feed. So if you if you're living, say, in Lebanon where I'm from, and you have poor people living around you, you can invite them or you can send food to them for a meal. And you don't have to pay anything. But if you're living in Australia, and you want to get the meal to someone who has a name, you can pay through a charity organization, depending on what one meal costs at the place that you're sending it.

00:57:43 --> 00:57:54

If I send it to say, I don't know how much it is in Malaysia, what is it a common meal in Malaysia? If you're from Singapore In Singapore, what's the common meal in Singapore?

00:57:56 --> 00:58:00

The low $10 So I sent $10 What's the common meal in Australia?

00:58:01 --> 00:58:13

Something a nice good meal. We're not talking about five star hotel. Restaurants. $30 We were talking about? Our is talking about a Waygu away goose steak

00:58:15 --> 00:58:31

30 bucks. Fellas, if that's what you eat here, 30 bucks your meal. God help your wife Well, while she's very lucky to get to buy her a whole big meal Michelle then it's $30 If that's what you eat, have a meal. But a common meal here in Australia to feed a person. A kebab sandwich would be what?

00:58:33 --> 00:58:38

2020 bucks 20 bucks per day. So depending on the livelihood of people

00:58:40 --> 00:58:48

Even it's not a prayer asked during her busting list. What do you recommend? If a woman is not able to fast or pray in the last 10 days of Ramadan? That's it. Her intention was there she still gets the reward as if she prayed and fasted.

00:59:39 --> 00:59:51

And all she does is make up the days that she couldn't fast and does not have to make up the solid. Other otherwise do everything else. Recite what and by heart make zikr make dua do good deeds giving charity.

But what I do know is that look at the hand verse the benefit, ask a doctor and say Okay, is there any harm that this pool can bring me what kind of harm can come to me if there's any harm in it, it's better not to take it and to break your fast and take a loss concession and Allah has fed you and He gave you a concession and gives you the same reward. You know, I personally, I never liked people to go out of their way to try and be extra religious. Really, unless you need to like if you want to take it for other reasons to make your life a little bit easier. For some reason, that's a different story. But just so that you can fast

01:01:05 --> 01:01:23

just so you can make your worship in your mind better. Don't Don't do that. Allah Subhana Allah gave you ease use the ease and Allah will give you those rewards and make up other days inshallah.
