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

COVID alameen wa salatu salam ala al Karim, Allah Allah he was actually he ministered to be similar to Eli oma deal.

00:00:12--> 00:00:20

All phases due to a law and may a lot of Peace and blessings, last prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and

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

family and his companions and all those who follow the path of righteousness. So the last day.

00:00:28--> 00:00:33

Now, when I continue on to complete the

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

lesson on

00:00:37--> 00:00:41

fasting phone, or we said also the other name for CRM.

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

And we

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

stopped at the point where we talked about the benefits that there are in fasting. Just in quick review. You know, he said that the fasting first and foremost the goal of fasting was to develop

00:01:02--> 00:01:09

consciousness of God consciousness on Arabic it's called taqwa. This was the goal of fasting. This is what a lot.

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

This is the goal.

00:01:14--> 00:01:42

Because what I personally, this is something between him Allah, Allah, Allah knows that he's fasting, because he can pretend he can eat before he leaves in the morning, while she's at work, she can sneak in the, you know, some room when nobody's watching, and take something to eat, go in the bathroom, he could smoke a cigarette, you can do anything, even break a sweat, right. But when he comes out, he appears to be fasting in front of everybody. So this is something between him and a lot. So because of that, the

00:01:43--> 00:01:59

the fasting itself, the goal, the essential goal of fasting is to develop a God consciousness. And if in reality, it is the God consciousness of a law, which controls the individual, and makes him a better person.

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

Because the laws of society

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

function

00:02:07--> 00:02:14

effectively when the people hear the law, and when they see representatives of the law.

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

I mean, if there's a policeman there,

00:02:19--> 00:02:24

or you feel the embarrassment of being caught, then you will not feel

00:02:25--> 00:02:31

better. If you feel that no policemen there, or you don't care whether you're quite enough, then you will feel

00:02:34--> 00:02:43

it is your consciousness of the law, which will prevent you from stealing, under all circumstances, whether there's a policeman there or not,

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

whether they the opportunity presents itself.

00:02:49--> 00:03:13

And your fear is not being caught and embarrassed in the society, but your fear of meeting along the Day of Judgment. And you have taken the rights of others, which will be taken back from you on the Day of Judgment. So if you feel allow, which makes you know, the individual a just an honest individualist society.

00:03:15--> 00:03:23

So this is why you need to list in country, it's not necessary to have the type of police force that you have saved for Captain America,

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

America in advance of society, as it is in everything used to be a policeman there, you have to be at least six foot

00:03:34--> 00:03:47

six foot tall, you must weigh at least 170 pounds. You know, you have to be a bhoot monster big man, when people see you, they fear you. And you carry all these weapons. And besides the

00:03:48--> 00:04:05

policemen, you know, they're all the big clubs and you know, all these bullets out in the guns and you know, big helmets, and they look like they will really hurt you if they catch you. So, this is what now keeps the people from breaking the law. This is necessary there.

00:04:07--> 00:04:24

And evidence of that, of course, is you know, the time when, about four years ago, five years ago, when there was a blackout in New York, the lights have gone out, the electricity was cut off, you know, for a short period about a 24 hour period. And during that period.

00:04:26--> 00:04:45

The whole city went mad. They had television crews, you know using the light spotlight and you know taking pictures of people, but people just want all the windows they drove up this truck the cars stealing things like that. And it was not limited just to the poor people to the poor people of the society.

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

It was in the supermarket the focus would go to the supermarket there's still food and things like this right? People are going to the different stores. You know the jewelry store, they're smashing into window diamonds of different sizes.

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

But they were always driving up in their Rolls Royces and their, you know, Mercedes and everything.

00:05:05--> 00:05:14

So it's just showing you that without the physical law being there, then the society would be in chaos. Whereas here we look in Saudi Arabia.

00:05:15--> 00:05:27

And a lot of you said, you know, Islamic law is not the total practice here. But still, it is good practice to a large degree. You look at the policeman. I mean, he looks like in American standards in a second Boy Scouts.

00:05:28--> 00:05:38

Right? He's a little guy, funny little guy, you know, something happens, you see him carrying away somebody that does something, you know, the big guy, the guy getting abortions, the police guy.

00:05:40--> 00:05:57

Because of the fact that the fear of God in society is so strong, that the criminals in people who commit crimes, I mean, they do not have even the viciousness, the type of viciousness that you may find. In other societies.

00:05:58--> 00:06:07

There is no escape. The lies is there to deal with the criminals when a person murders he's executed. You know, the law is there. But more than that,

00:06:08--> 00:06:14

the consciousness of bodies in society so that it's supposed to see somebody doing anything that might look like it's wrong, they will report

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

in America,

00:06:20--> 00:06:25

clients to take place in front of people's eyes. I mean, there was one case, I remember reading about two years ago, in

00:06:27--> 00:06:34

broad daylight, a woman was raped on the streets, screaming or lungs of people walking by without

00:06:39--> 00:06:39

this happening.

00:06:41--> 00:06:50

In America, people are brutalized, you know, the subway station prison comes into pattern, people taking their money. So everybody stands back, they don't want to get involved.

00:06:52--> 00:07:07

The attitude, whereas because of the Alliance, Muslim society, this would, because everybody feel their responsibility, not just to themselves, but to the society as a whole. If there's somebody being hurt, this is a brother Muslim, he has to be helped.

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

So this motivates the individual, the care of God motivated individuals, to fight against crime, with you know, whatever power bills, he has to hide against the fact

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

that the goal of fasting, being tough,

00:07:23--> 00:08:03

there are benefits of fasting said, among them, for example, that it gives in the Muslim a, an awareness to certain degree of poverty, and hunger, that others may feel, those people are too poor to buy a meal see themselves, they're under pressure, where they're unable to feed themselves, they, if a person does not experience to some degree, what it means to be hungry, then it is a lot more difficult for him, or her to give to them, to feel to understand to be sympathetic for the hungry. So the fact that when we fast, and we deliberately, we choose to put aside food, then

00:08:04--> 00:08:11

this gives us by when we feel the pains of hunger and thoughts on it. This gives us an idea of what those people are going through.

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

by choice, but they're not doing

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

that should make us even more conscious. But as I said before,

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

if we make the past

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

and we eat,

00:08:23--> 00:08:33

you know, deal with oil jams, you can hardly be ending up with our way and you're almost falling over because your stomach is so fat. If we're eating a gallon,

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

or eating in the morning, we eat a big, big, big meal,

00:08:37--> 00:08:49

sleep all day and stay up all night. Of course, this principle that I'm talking about has no meaning, because you will feel hungry. In fact, as I said, there are many people who gain weight in Ramadan

00:08:51--> 00:08:51

because they eat

00:08:55--> 00:09:00

so the whole principle of sympathy understanding, feeling very alone.

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

The whole principle Well, according to the letter of the law.

00:09:06--> 00:09:20

This is why it's very important to understand that there's a difference between the letter and the spirit, the letter has behind it a spirit. If you just take the letter alone, then you leave the spirits, then you may not benefit from the law, you may be going against the law.

00:09:23--> 00:09:36

So if you fast properly, then inshallah we'll experience that. And we will have, you know, some consciousness of what those who are starting to go through and that will help us and shall have to be more generous in our wealth and sharing our wealth with others.

00:09:39--> 00:09:43

So that you know, it also teaches us control

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

of our desires during the rest of the year.

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

Outside of Ramallah, we know that for the human being the most powerful desire that he has

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

desire for food, and the desire for sex. These are the main two

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

The most powerful drive that an individual has, he could kill for it.

00:10:05--> 00:10:24

He killed for food and hunger, if he starved to death he may kill if he does not have any kind of fear of alarm, anything there, he may kill people, you know, yeah, people know, being isolated that plane crash or whatever, and they're balanced as food runs out, then they decide the weakest one amongst them, they decide to kill that with leading

00:10:27--> 00:10:36

their lack of fear of aloneness, this desire to get that food to survive, causes them to kill others. The same thing in the case of affected is architects need men to

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

a man who may will be married.

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

Or they may have many girlfriends, but yet the desire for sex may cause him to go and raise somebody.

00:10:50--> 00:10:53

So these are two most powerful events. So the fact that I'm allowed

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

to control these most powerful desires, the human being,

00:10:59--> 00:11:07

to control it, so that out of the rest of Ramadan, we will have drawn into sin and into evil and into corruption by these two desires

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

to come back around this training period in Ramallah, used to hold him back.

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

The difficulty arises, you can control yourself, if you have no training period,

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

to try to hold these guys back then,

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

you know, you're finished, when the desire comes, then you follow it.

00:11:31--> 00:11:47

laugher pointed out that, you know, one of the benefits of Ramadan is that it helps to improve the moral character of Muslims, because we said that the fasting of Ramadan is not just the physical and instead there's a hadith in which

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

you know, has said that Allah has no need for you starving yourself

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

denying yourself of

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

your thirst and your hunger, he has no need for that.

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

If you do not

00:12:07--> 00:12:08

give up in decent

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

talk.

00:12:15--> 00:12:15

So

00:12:17--> 00:12:25

this other aspect of fasting, which is essential that we should control what we speak about

00:12:26--> 00:12:32

and what we do what we see during the month of Ramadan to fasting to be

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

true fasting

00:12:36--> 00:12:37

we have to do that

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

because if we're talking the way we talk

00:12:42--> 00:12:56

concerning women, corruption, etc. all we're looking at Playboy magazine, you know, are some other you know, watching videos that involve you know, filthy acts, etc. And we should feel shameful

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

you know, watching the video where men plans into bed with a woman I mean,

00:13:01--> 00:13:10

you know your song, someone who has to say to you, let's go into so and so's house when he's making love with his wife and and watch them. No, you did not do that.

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

But you realize it and watch it on video.

00:13:17--> 00:13:27

Because in your mind, you think they're acting, but really think about it, there is not really any difference. If you sit there and watch people climb into bed and Nick love with each other on the video. It's not because you study in

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

people while making love food laughing.

00:13:32--> 00:13:39

It's simple. And you should feel safe. You don't feel shyness inside yourself with something wrong. You have to look at yourself.

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

In case you're clear, ask a lot to put fear in your heart. If you don't feel excited, you just sit there.

00:13:47--> 00:13:52

It's all right, let's move you at all. If it comes down, you should stick with that.

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

And you should avoid the kind of rumors.

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

So

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

you have to in the course of fasting, control what you're seeing what you're saying what you're doing.

00:14:09--> 00:14:22

If these don't happen, then you're doing the physical facts, fulfilling the letter of the law again, but the Spirit is gone. And that fast will be a sin Are you

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

allowed to ask you about

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

it will not be good deeds on your on your scale of good deeds. But even though these are new scale of evil.

00:14:37--> 00:14:37

Of course,

00:14:38--> 00:14:54

we also know that doctors have shown that in faxing, a person uses up collateral against things to kind of fasting not the one where you pack yourself when you're sleeping during the day and up all night. But

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

the person actually deciding then what happens during that period. The

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

The body uses up the cholesterol, it breaks it down. And they show that this helps people who have problems, high problems, heart problems, which tend to be one of the major killers amongst men can be tied to

00:15:14--> 00:15:18

cause, etc, etc. This is from the buildup of cholesterol,

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

cholesterol in the blood,

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

balancing as fat in the veins and arteries.

00:15:28--> 00:15:41

Breaking down this, there's health benefits here. And also the idea of like any machine, if you work a machine, you know, just constantly constantly, constantly constantly going to break down eventually, AI systems or machines.

00:15:42--> 00:15:48

By fasting, you also give that year, every year, for a month, you give your system a break,

00:15:50--> 00:16:10

overhaul yet, you know you take it into the shop, get it over, that it needs needed this drill. So that said, unconditioned, that you're doing a proper fact, that is the overhaul. Otherwise, it's just really an added burden you're putting on your system, if you're not doing the recording.

00:16:11--> 00:16:55

And of course, the fact that you know, because of the South exchange, which is involved, it trains us for jihad, fighting in a lot of ways. But of course, when the Mujahideen You know, when armies and people go out, fight, it's common that when people are victorious or whatever, then they become, you know, corrupt, they are running to the cities, they will murder people or rape the women, you know, feel this type of thing. And they desire like, which has to happen in Vietnam, is that the Vietnamese not Vietnamese, sometimes with with capture, and destroy many Americans, based on the same desires. They'll have a woman for example, not giving this woman she's you know, maybe not

00:16:55--> 00:17:08

properly dressed, but she's inviting some guys to come, she's got herself strapped up with grenades, and they all come thinking they're gonna have a good time, they all come in and she pulls the pin blows them all right, was

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

never drawn into that

00:17:11--> 00:17:20

you will never be drawn into that. Because of his consciousness, his training in fasting etc, would never be to elicit the sexual desire of causing people to be destroyed.

00:17:22--> 00:17:42

So it changed because in jihad is one of the areas that you know, that people who are involved in fighting back they have to be very careful of, because it's very easy human designs are very fine and they can drive you to do all kinds of things you would normally do, when you find yourself in a position of power over other people, the tendency is to want to use that power.

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

So, yeah,

00:17:45--> 00:17:52

is a time when without G has to be a benefit for you as the mama said, the hookah said that

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

there are 100 degrees or 100 levels.

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

In

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

each one of them

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

is a distance between each one of them is like the distance between heaven and earth.

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

And these 100 levels are reserved

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

wait a minute benefit

00:18:21--> 00:18:21

words.

00:18:23--> 00:18:28

But it only become benefits and rewards if the people who are fighting

00:18:31--> 00:18:31

corruption,

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

cracking the code very important to keep out to keep that you had here for a law, corruption injury.

00:18:41--> 00:18:50

Now, after that, we talked about the sacking of the moon. When we said that, in Islam, we do not follow the what they call the

00:18:53--> 00:19:04

Roman calendar. But we don't follow in the lunar calendar, we don't follow the the charts that have been set up, you know where the times are set exactly when the month is going to begin

00:19:05--> 00:19:24

is the loop the new calendar which is put out by astronomers at the beginning of every year that put out a new calendar for the year, which they set the month. We don't follow that. Why because we said that their calculations are not 100% accurate.

00:19:25--> 00:19:32

There will always be some areas because human beings cannot measure anything 100%

00:19:33--> 00:19:50

there will always be 99.1 accurate instruments to come. The bigger the decimal point 9999 it's more accurate 999 more accurate nine nine that they will never reach 100 because only Allah is perfect.

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

So the calculation cannot be relied on.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

We rely on the sighting because the sighting is something people

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

can do anywhere

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

in the world.

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

And of course, the proper Solomon says on the principle that you know, if the last

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

day of shabang

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

that is the 29th of chart that goes month to month or either 29 days or 30. If the last day of Chabad becomes cloudy.

00:20:22--> 00:20:28

And this will be the time when you're looking at the moon out from above, and becomes cloudy, then you assume

00:20:29--> 00:20:33

that you're still in charge and you continue to the 30th. And you begin

00:20:35--> 00:20:42

after associate may damage general principle, later on, you might find out that really, Siobhan was 29 days.

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

Right. And

00:20:47--> 00:20:54

that day, which you call the 30th, was really the first of a lot, you may find that out later. In which case, if you find it out later,

00:20:56--> 00:21:16

you add an extra day of passing after Milan to make up for the day that you miss. If you never found out well, then there's nothing we just went according to the principle, a lot of D would not do is you would not fast 31 days, the maximum days of factoring is 30 days.

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

There are some days

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

on which it is not allowable, for you to fact

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

that, for example, the fact that

00:21:35--> 00:21:49

he because the Muslim is like the weekly heat, the weekly day of celebration, they're not allowed to accept an ANOVA. Or if you are fasting the day before it and the day after

00:21:51--> 00:21:56

the fact like Thursday, and Saturday, you don't specify

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

Friday, almost fasting, not allowed to be invited,

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

as well as

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

other days are forbidden, fasting, and also the last

00:22:09--> 00:22:16

three days of patch, with a call am with the city at 11 1213.

00:22:18--> 00:22:18

You're not allowed.

00:22:24--> 00:22:35

We discussed briefly that when a person is traveling is allowed record facts with looking at that when we discuss the areas concerning traveling and shortening.

00:22:36--> 00:22:42

The class the person was fasting during Ramadan when he's traveling is allowed to break fast.

00:22:43--> 00:22:51

And he does he makes up for the days she missed while traveling when he gets back from the job.

00:22:52--> 00:23:02

Some people say well, if the travel is by airplane, it's very comfortable. Now, you know, there's no pressure on you about fasting, then you don't you should pack. But no department

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

had said the Lord gave us certain concessions. And he likes

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

the concessions.

00:23:10--> 00:23:17

So if you're traveling it is preferable for you to make the fat and make up the day afterwards.

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

If a person is sick,

00:23:21--> 00:23:27

and you know, for example, doctors have shown or he from his own experience, tried to pass and he finds sickness increases

00:23:28--> 00:23:34

then he is allowed to break the fast. And after Ramadan he makes up.

00:23:35--> 00:23:39

But if the sickness is, is like a terminal sickness,

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

the type of sickness which is not going to get better.

00:23:44--> 00:24:00

We've got what they call a terminal cancer fasting aggravated and there's no getting better no time that after Ramadan, you'll be able to make up a little bit. And what he does he see a property for every day of the month.

00:24:01--> 00:24:08

Or the seeds 34 people on one day makes a big meal in fact 34 people

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

every day

00:24:13--> 00:24:26

woman who is pregnant or breastfeeding, suckling her baby, if she fears for her health or the health of the baby. She also was allowed. Not too fast to make them those days.

00:24:28--> 00:24:37

But it should be the condition that she fears for her health. And for the baby like the baby's very sickly or seems to be weak. Or she herself is a weak,

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

physically weak. And when she tries to fight she finds herself you know, breaking down she says I'd love to see the baby, etc, etc. Those types of circumstances then she's allowed to but just to save a lot. She's feeding the baby she doesn't have to fast No. It's the misconceptions. People have that automatically just because she's breastfeeding or because she's pregnancy automatically doesn't know all the issues.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

For her health, or for the health of the child, she's allowed

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

to break the bath

00:25:16--> 00:25:16

deliberately.

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

If accidentally, like for example, you know,

00:25:23--> 00:25:29

the glass of water, you take a drink or eat in the morning, get up in the morning, you just forgot that your theory allows

00:25:32--> 00:25:33

you This doesn't break your

00:25:36--> 00:25:36

accidental

00:25:39--> 00:25:39

loss.

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

This is a back again, between you and a lot.

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

Because you can always pretend

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

that you didn't know when you're eating and

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

whatever.

00:25:53--> 00:26:07

If you really actually forgotten what you did. And this includes actually having sex with your wife, although it is kind of hard to imagine that a person would forget and actually go through the whole process of how six is his wife, and then remember afterwards.

00:26:09--> 00:26:21

It's kind of hard to imagine but still people have the benefit of adulthood. If it so happens in our lives, maybe the first day of Ramadan second day, it might technically be possible to forget.

00:26:23--> 00:26:30

As long as it's accurate to forgetfulness, then you just make up the day that you miss. But now is it deliberate?

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

deliberate

00:26:34--> 00:26:49

design decide was just too much stomach uncertain, you you're hungry, you know, you just feel like you need to take a drink, then make up for that day that you have broken deliberately. You have to know 560 consecutive days

00:26:50--> 00:27:00

60 consecutive days, meaning that if you find 30 days, and then you didn't find the 31st day, you have to start all over again.

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

60 consecutive days 60 days one

00:27:10--> 00:27:17

yeah, I mean it what it is, it's like a tournament because of a person who does not fear a lot at all.

00:27:18--> 00:27:24

If he didn't talk Ramadan or he would deliberately break too fast of Ramadan, is he going too fast 60 days

00:27:26--> 00:27:34

is like the equivalent of penance. You know, in Christianity, like when people did certain wrong things, they might put a cross on their back and drag it up some mountain

00:27:37--> 00:27:44

walking out she was you know, over gravel and things like this, you know, some kind of physical punishment that they presented themselves to, to

00:27:45--> 00:27:57

relieve themselves of the sin act of them done in Islam again this the sin here, but the punishment you could say or the atonement is comes from the same

00:27:59--> 00:28:03

category as the app this was supposed to have been done. So fast.

00:28:05--> 00:28:15

If a person sincerely does the 60 day fast, then that will help him overcome the desire to break it on another occasion

00:28:16--> 00:28:27

and also the fear of having to do it you know, the past 60 days also helps the person who might have the desire to bake the fast

00:28:28--> 00:28:28

but

00:28:30--> 00:28:36

he knows that he is he will have the fastest two days afterwards you know and he has some

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

This will help them off.

00:28:45--> 00:28:49

Now, one of the fundamental principles of factoring is known as the horse.

00:28:50--> 00:28:56

The horse is the light meal which is taken just before dawn

00:28:58--> 00:28:58

lights

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

the plant is off to a light meal taken just before dawn.

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

wakes up

00:29:08--> 00:29:15

and sunrise is already there. Or the light is in the sky has been given ready. He's not allowed to eat them yet.

00:29:18--> 00:29:28

But that near some people also go to bed deliberately knowing in their mind they have no plans to get up with the horse. They eat at night 12 o'clock one o'clock at night to eat a big meal to figure Okay,

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

this is wrong.

00:29:31--> 00:29:36

Someone said you should take even if it's just a glass of water, you should take

00:29:39--> 00:29:49

distinguish yourself from the juice. Others take because in other systems it may fall 24 hours 25 minutes for business.

00:29:52--> 00:29:53

So you must take

00:29:55--> 00:29:56

but if you oversleep

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

then it's

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

If you're removed, there's no sense.

00:30:03--> 00:30:15

Also, if you are eating the surfboard, and the van goes, you prepare your meal, you take up your glass, or you take up your dish you're ready to eat. And the event goes,

00:30:16--> 00:30:17

What do you do?

00:30:19--> 00:30:22

About It said, You should eat

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

what you have in your hand.

00:30:27--> 00:30:35

Instead, you should eat from what you have in your hand, or drink from what you have in your hand,

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

enough to remove from yourself. The desire

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

to be valuable, you have the ball in your hand, even if you started eating, or you're advertised to eat,

00:30:50--> 00:30:53

finished, do you feel comfortable as much as you can put it down.

00:30:57--> 00:31:10

But I think mistakenly, maybe some of you are under the impression that if your dad goes to have to put everything down, what it means is you can't design goals, we don't blow we're not picking up this and thinking of that as the age, right? That this is just the point it

00:31:11--> 00:31:20

is that whatever you had in your hand, you had a glass in your hand or your addition your hand, you finish eating some agenda from that. And then you put it down. Okay.

00:31:22--> 00:31:42

Also, if you wake up, you're in an area where there are no clocks or whatever, you judge according to the sky. And in the morning, you look out. And it appears to you that dawn hasn't come in. But it just so happened, the sky is cloudy, you can't tell if the sky is cloudy.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

In the early early morning,

00:31:47--> 00:31:56

it just appeared to you that there was a new age. And later on, you found that you know, somebody came by your house, are you still eating the dog in a dog.

00:31:57--> 00:32:01

In this case, there is nothing against you. Because you did not deliberately

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

after

00:32:05--> 00:32:12

the coming of the dog. And there's been a lot Debbie's you according to what your intention is. And we said that basic idea of the problem,

00:32:13--> 00:32:17

she said in them, yet the deeds are judged by their intention.

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

The other basic principle

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

or

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

practice in the fasting is called

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

and that is the breaking of the path. And this should be done immediately.

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

After the setting as

00:32:39--> 00:32:46

soon as you know the design, you should go and do it drop off elements that people will remain happy and prosperous, as long as they hasten to break.

00:32:49--> 00:33:14

And again, it is preferable that when you get depressed you take you know some days or some foods and water, you break the path, then you go and play then you come back there was an article in the paper, you know, last week, which one doctor was discussing, fasting and now he pointed out that they were you know mistaken ideas people say that they have out there there are different conditions and I love the fact that

00:33:17--> 00:33:23

you guys know it's not as long as the person follows the basic physical is when he finished eating he stopped and

00:33:24--> 00:33:41

then if he has any external problems and that this will increase systemic problems, but if he takes the light meal, when dignified to take the three days or whatever, and you plug it out a date and live Of course when he talks about dating or anything similar to date, that could be tuned or it could be raising something similar.

00:33:42--> 00:33:53

Once you take the things are especially good for breaking the fact that caused the fact that they give the system you know natural sugars, which are easy for a system to break down to utilize and

00:33:55--> 00:33:58

prepares the body for the meal afterwards.

00:34:00--> 00:34:08

But an elaborate explanation about why it is good liquefy lightly and also with some natural foods.

00:34:15--> 00:34:16

The graph which you also learn

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

real fast he said a lot.

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

Of course for those of you who have no credit

00:34:27--> 00:34:32

but those of you who have gone fast learning 5 million learning different things is good to learn.

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

In the notes are

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

distributed, you should learn Do I have to make the

00:34:42--> 00:34:45

means or law for you I have fasted and Livia provision

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

the all these different drives that we're taking, whether it is before going in the bathroom or going into the magnitude of coming up to the bathroom or putting on your clothes or putting on your shoes or whatever different do as bathrooms are telling us to make all of them

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

We can see in them a remembrance of a lot. The whole idea is to help us to remember a lot is not to make us, you know, make our lives so mechanical and so rigid, you know, that we can't see for ourselves, which is what some ignorant people and looking at the different practices of Islam descend to look at it in the fact that I think all

00:35:21--> 00:35:34

this has to do that, let's say this will say that, you know, it's like, robots, all these rituals, but know the purpose behind it, you can see that's why it's important for you to know if you think, you know, you should not be making the drive etc. Without knowing what you're saying.

00:35:35--> 00:35:41

Here it is. Allahumma Mecca simple. Hola, Leo Fox, have you tried to purify your intention

00:35:42--> 00:35:55

to clarify for law and please stop reading for yourself, because the law knows what your intention was. To remind yourself that your thoughts was far along your path was not because everybody ought to factor

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

a cultural

00:35:58--> 00:36:01

cultural practice has no reward

00:36:02--> 00:36:06

must be for law. And with your provision.

00:36:08--> 00:36:22

And with your provision, I've worked in it again, you're recognizing the whatever food or drink whatever you had, you were to boil the frog. This was from the law, you're giving thanks to the law for what he has given you. This is the value of the law.

00:36:25--> 00:36:33

in Ramadan, we have extra prayers after a shot known as telawi. here

00:36:38--> 00:36:42

but it's actually Talia, Alex, there are all

00:36:44--> 00:36:56

these, according to the some of the top 11 units of fair after Asia, some places they may make 20

00:36:57--> 00:37:02

commonly in the number of fish, but this has no basis in the Sunnah of the Prophet.

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

His practice was 11 this is inside Buhari

00:37:11--> 00:37:19

never made more than 11 units affair, after Aisha and she mentioned that you would do four

00:37:21--> 00:37:21

and four

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

and then three,

00:37:25--> 00:37:31

right. So it could be done in the form of two, two, and you see them for those

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

11 comedy after every group before that.

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

It could also be done for

00:37:41--> 00:37:47

you Don't you know you don't have to make testings after to stop the philosophy you could actually do.

00:37:50--> 00:37:59

And this is highly recommend, you know the added prayers, because again, we said we should all of our worship a vida, you should try to increase it.

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

So

00:38:08--> 00:38:08

lesson

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

alpha

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

power worshiping the magic power is better than

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

1000 months.

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

1000

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

Wow, I mean,

00:38:24--> 00:38:24

you know,

00:38:27--> 00:38:27

that night,

00:38:29--> 00:38:30

better or worse,

00:38:31--> 00:38:35

more than or equivalent to the worship in 1000 months.

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

That means if you play them, you know, divide 12 into 1000. You don't need to pray for the next many years.

00:38:42--> 00:38:45

This is a very twisted approach.

00:38:46--> 00:38:52

The whole purpose of that is to cut it is not for this purpose. You got the person who's going to take in this line.

00:38:54--> 00:38:57

Right here worship is not for Allah.

00:38:58--> 00:39:14

First who thinks this life is worship is not for a lot. It's just like some people for example, I would meet you know, some people from this part of the world in America, and they're very corrupt. They're going to discos visiting properties are they just out of it? They're in America.

00:39:15--> 00:39:28

And you try to speak to a brother here a law you know, control yourself. You're, you're Muslim, you know, so that we don't don't worry about this. You know, when we go back, we go and make our own law and remove that

00:39:32--> 00:39:38

is a very mistaken idea in their mind, a victim of corruption and then go back and nicoma

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

because

00:39:42--> 00:39:46

that's from hombre to override Watch out that in between.

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

But what kind of Omer is

00:39:54--> 00:39:54

talking about

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

the one fear is a lot and does offer up for the pleasure

00:40:02--> 00:40:07

Not a person who feel that the ritual, he doesn't feel a lot because there is in America.

00:40:08--> 00:40:12

Obviously, that's thinking about a lot. So there's no fear of a lot of their

00:40:13--> 00:40:18

own right, only a ritual, he is going to the physical act of going around the Kaaba

00:40:20--> 00:40:22

that will not remove any of

00:40:24--> 00:40:27

the distortion. And also there is

00:40:29--> 00:40:33

a sense of stupidity to it, because does he have any guarantee that he will make it back to make the

00:40:36--> 00:40:37

look and guarantee with

00:40:42--> 00:40:57

similarly, this night of how we seek it, we do extortion, so that shall not insincere worship, I wish it may match that night that we get that added reward is added.

00:40:58--> 00:41:05

And a lot it's not really unusual because we know in the various things of Islam, Allah has given added value to certain things.

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

We know that for example,

00:41:10--> 00:41:19

prayer in Mecca is worth 1000s 100,000

00:41:24--> 00:41:27

Rockstar felons massive is worth 1000s

00:41:31--> 00:41:31

very massive

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

what 500 times

00:41:36--> 00:41:40

So, Allah has given certain values to these

00:41:41--> 00:41:46

prayer in the masjid in Damara is worth 20,000 times prayer at your home.

00:41:48--> 00:42:13

So the different act different times different places, when the value of the prayer there increases, but it only increases with sincerity in these various acts of worship. I mean, the ritual will never increase the value of the ritual, the ritual without the spirit is a sin against yourself.

00:42:17--> 00:42:20

Okay, inshallah, this covers the

00:42:22--> 00:42:29

main principles of Ramadan. So if there are any questions, you know, you'd like to ask concerning or Milan,

00:42:38--> 00:42:38

you

00:42:50--> 00:42:50

the cabinet.

00:42:53--> 00:43:00

Okay, no, the captain will cover that in more detail. Next, sitting because you're going to do

00:43:01--> 00:43:09

the hook and after looking at the guy who would often Look at that guy. So you know, so as not to repeat ourselves. You're coming next Friday.

00:43:10--> 00:43:12

So we'll come back

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

tomorrow with a cup of

00:43:19--> 00:43:19

tea.

00:43:23--> 00:43:23

Yeah.

00:43:28--> 00:43:28

Yeah,

00:43:30--> 00:43:30

we'll go through it.

00:43:32--> 00:43:36

Any other questions concerning Ramadan, or

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

anything outside of Ramadan

00:44:07--> 00:44:10

feeding the feeding of a poor person.

00:44:11--> 00:44:15

This will be in the case where your sickness will not

00:44:17--> 00:44:38

get better. If you think you're already old age for example, you're way old and you're physically weak that you tried to find you find yourself like you're about to die. So you say I can't find right. Or for example, you are underneath your venous treatments. You know, your your city, your linemen, they give you intravenous intermediate repeater with that constantly. So you can

00:44:39--> 00:44:45

write these circumstances where there's no this is the constant state that you're in.

00:44:46--> 00:44:53

Then you do the figure when you feed a poor person for every day of

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

Ramadan 30 days right. whereas in the case of a person who is just sick temporarily

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

You know, the sickness is going to come back No, go away after some time, then if you've missed some days because of sickness, or you missed the whole of Ramadan because of sickness, once you get rather than you

00:45:11--> 00:45:12

know, then you find,

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

then you have

00:45:17--> 00:45:19

some people know that not only the fact that, you

00:45:20--> 00:45:26

know, you give the city as well as practice is different. But what is most obvious is that,

00:45:39--> 00:45:44

well, taking medicine if the medicine involves something that you're drinking, or interviewing,

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

right, then.

00:45:51--> 00:45:57

And in which case, although you may be doing it deliberately, but it's out of necessity, because you're sick, then you make up.

00:45:59--> 00:46:10

But if it is an injection, for example, they give you an injection of vitamin C, or you get an injection or traveling to get some antibiotics, or

00:46:11--> 00:46:13

vaccination, these don't break.

00:46:15--> 00:46:16

Some people have said this.

00:46:18--> 00:46:19

Because the whole idea is

00:46:22--> 00:46:27

to take something which is, which involves in the food that you're taking food you're drinking or eating,

00:46:29--> 00:46:33

in the game, instead, because you can stick it in your mouth being put in your veins, liquid

00:46:35--> 00:46:35

glucose,

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

you're feeding.

00:46:39--> 00:46:43

whereas in the case of a medicine, the following vaccination service

00:47:03--> 00:47:06

well, naturally, because this would be like, food

00:47:07--> 00:47:10

will be coming under the same category of food, it's not out of sickness,

00:47:11--> 00:47:15

or out of need, your body needs to protect itself from some germs.

00:47:16--> 00:47:17

This is like

00:47:18--> 00:47:25

a stimulus and you're taking it that way is that you actually putting in some food thing in your body to give your body strength, some football

00:47:43--> 00:47:43

fans.

00:47:55--> 00:47:57

If you're too poor to give, they're not going to give.

00:47:58--> 00:48:04

You know, if you're too poor, and you're sick, you can't fulfill the fact that we get

00:48:09--> 00:48:10

a lot of dogs.

00:48:12--> 00:48:16

I mean, this was a case in which a man came to

00:48:17--> 00:48:23

get the kids with a Manny had sexual relations with Dr. Ramadan.

00:48:24--> 00:48:34

And to talk about them said we're looking after 560 days, but it's going to hinder his desire, it was his strong desire to the habits caused him to

00:48:35--> 00:48:44

break the past in the first place, if you had to go 60 days for sure you would do it. Okay. So in this case, the event FM segment Okay, then you must

00:48:45--> 00:48:45

feed

00:48:47--> 00:48:52

60 people, he said, you know, 64 people, he said, but I'm the poorest person in the whole area.

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

data which had been given earlier, which was the characters

00:49:01--> 00:49:01

instead of giving

00:49:03--> 00:49:04

the giving the data

00:49:06--> 00:49:08

because of the fact that this was the circumstance,

00:49:10--> 00:49:16

flexible in the sense of recognizing a practice circumstance not demanding of him that which he is unable to do.

00:49:23--> 00:49:28

First you have to be careful not to swallow, you know, say you brush your teeth and you should spit them

00:49:29--> 00:49:34

out. But the prophets Allah with that bit of a fact that he used to make

00:49:35--> 00:49:38

us to use Misaki to stick us.

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

He said when you're gardening,

00:49:42--> 00:49:53

in fact, things that you shouldn't let the water go to the back of your head normally when you're Garbo, you should. He said you know that you should be excessive in your garden and a lot of people in that garden when they're washing them up.

00:49:54--> 00:49:57

Spit it out, but no one will put the water in your mouth. You should have

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

You should clean out the back of your throat. No people don't do it. That's the proper way to do it except in Ramadan.

00:50:08--> 00:50:12

in Ramadan, you just now pick it in your mouth and spit it out.

00:50:13--> 00:50:17

But if you're doing that normally you're not doing it correctly. Because I tell them I said

00:50:19--> 00:50:23

you should, you should be excessive in it. Good luck, get it right in the back there

00:50:25--> 00:50:35

was spitting, cleaning out your mouth. Because if you just go like this did the whole back part of your throat, which is where a lot of German salsa was collected? Nobody really gave me a sorcerer, where does it come from?

00:50:36--> 00:50:37

It's always in our backyard, isn't it?

00:50:39--> 00:50:51

When you get all the the with the nucleus. And also besides that, it's always in the back part of the filter. This is the proper, what they call muda. In Arabic, the proper way is to take it back there.

00:50:54--> 00:50:58

And when you're taking it's been shuffling and taking the water again Sunday.

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

But we're supposed to do you're supposed to go

00:51:04--> 00:51:05

to India, the water,

00:51:06--> 00:51:18

you take it up into your nose, I don't know, and it goes into your lungs, right? The point you got to stop when you choke, if you take it out, though, to go up, as you know, right up to the back part of the nose.

00:51:19--> 00:51:20

And then blow it out.

00:51:25--> 00:51:32

And one point to note also in making will do that wiping the back of the neck is not from the sun.

00:51:35--> 00:51:41

Some people when they're making after watching the fitness, wrap the hair in the

00:51:42--> 00:51:42

back of the neck.

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

It's not

00:51:48--> 00:51:54

somebody may say well, what's wrong? You know, why are you going to die, you know, in the back of your neck.

00:51:56--> 00:51:59

Right? Stop there, okay, why not wash your hand all the way up to your armpits?

00:52:00--> 00:52:03

Why don't wash your foot all the way up to your knees, you know,

00:52:06--> 00:52:06

and teach that as

00:52:10--> 00:52:24

if you wash your foot and you watch it above your foot, there's no harm in it. In the sense that when you're washing, you're supposed to wash, at least you're anchored right? If you increase it, there's no harm. But now if you teach that as what your people are supposed to do, they become

00:52:27--> 00:52:47

understand. So if you're wrapping your head and into your head and goes out the back of your neck, there's no harm, if you just did that, like there was swept on the back of the unit. So you just did that. But now that becomes your regular practice. And you teach that to others that you feel that that's what you're supposed to do. And then you're making the call or innovation in the religion.

00:52:50--> 00:52:52

And Islam is very, you know, very

00:52:53--> 00:52:56

careful about not having any additions.

00:52:57--> 00:52:59

The problem is our fellow he's the one who brought

00:53:00--> 00:53:05

and this is what keeps Islam pure onto Yama, Yama, because once you open the door for all these things,

00:53:07--> 00:53:08

live what happened to

00:53:09--> 00:53:12

the people did not keep to the Sunnah of Prophet Isa.

00:53:15--> 00:53:18

They didn't keep to sin. They went against the sinner and

00:53:20--> 00:53:25

added innovations, drop things added things until now what they're practicing is unrecognizable.

00:53:27--> 00:53:37

And then the user has to come to the end to practice and govern themselves. I mean, he would not recognize this from you know, religious practice. It could be unrecognizable.

00:53:42--> 00:53:44

Any other Christmas.

00:54:05--> 00:54:06

He lives with an angel.

00:54:12--> 00:54:22

I know he said he was the injury study was among the among the difference between the two. Because it was a gin the new as among the angels allow head

00:54:23--> 00:54:41

had raised his station, given him a position lock the position because the certain knowledge and abilities that he had over the rest of the gym, and that had given him the right to be unknown, dangerous. He was among them in the group. This is where a lot said Yeah.

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

Yeah.

00:54:50--> 00:54:52

Then I said the danger.

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

He was also betting that the police did not

00:55:15--> 00:55:17

Yeah, it's worth a Jin

00:55:18--> 00:55:23

Jin has a choice between believing or not believing

00:55:24--> 00:55:25

a belief

00:55:26--> 00:55:29

was wet and refusing to obey God.

00:55:31--> 00:55:32

He became a Bajin.

00:55:33--> 00:55:35

Up until that point he will not imagine.

00:55:39--> 00:55:42

He was not an angel. It says right in the middle when

00:55:44--> 00:56:30

a client says specifically that he was agent. And he believes that in his explanation, he will say when Allah asked him, Why didn't you about Adam, he said, because he was made you made him a play, and you made me on fire. And we know that angels are made from rites of passage and said that angels are made from light and the jinn are made from smokeless fire. So fire, not fire as we know your light a match fire to the gym, I know. But a elemental fire, it could be you know, a long old nuclear fire or whatever, you know, but a fire which is smokeless is not despite that we know, in regular life. Some people may ask, how could they go to the Hellfire the bat? If they're on fire, or

00:56:30--> 00:56:42

the Logan approached them with the help? Well, the point is that it's not a problem. Because you know, I, you made some play, right? But I can take a piece of play that's been hiding, and smash and kill you with it.

00:56:44--> 00:57:00

So the fact that you are made from COVID, and you can't be harmed by play, that just means that's what your origin was. you're arguing with clay, but are you a piece of clay walking around? No, that's your origin. Similarly, the Jim's origin was fired, it doesn't mean that they just fired about the flag or

00:57:02--> 00:57:03

mistaken concept.

00:57:04--> 00:57:11

But the belief was among the gym was given certain

00:57:12--> 00:57:22

powers and certain abilities, which allow nadian higher and greater than the rest of the gym.

00:57:24--> 00:57:28

Just like among the angels, certain angels are given greater powers and the other Angel

00:57:31--> 00:57:48

Gabriel is given more powers and more responsibility than the others. Similarly, a blues was given greater responsibility among the jinn and he was allowed to be among the angels. So he was with the angels in the command was given his power of local in Malacca.

00:57:49--> 00:57:50

Agha

00:57:51--> 00:57:54

Illa, Allah said called to the to the angel,

00:57:56--> 00:58:01

among them with the belief, bow to Adam, and they all did except for

00:58:02--> 00:58:02

this.

00:58:04--> 00:58:18

And this, you know, in terms of Islamic context, this is looked at as the original sin if there is an original sin in Islam, it is the pride of the belief because that's what led him to not bow

00:58:37--> 00:58:42

you know, in talking with people that talk about religion, you're important to clarify that for

00:58:43--> 00:59:02

for non Muslims, Christians, etc. The idea that when you talk about Christianity original sin in Islam, we have no reason to sin in the sense that you have a sin which is an inherited generation after generation we have nothing like that. But original meaning the first Yes, yeah, the first thing that was that

00:59:04--> 00:59:15

when he refused about Adam, and his refusal was based on tribe. There's a lot of promise about filament said that anyone will have a mustard seeds with a pride will not enterprise

00:59:20--> 00:59:30

pride over out of out of country or any of these that youth as a family through your superior to other this destroys your Eman

00:59:32--> 00:59:35

because a lot of business in the UK, Roma come in the lobby.

00:59:37--> 00:59:43

The one who's most noble, in a lot of fight is the one who fears a lot
