00:00:03--> 00:00:11

alameen salatu salam ala rasulillah, Karim, Allah Allah He was the minister in the vicinity, he and I omit Dean

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

offers due to a law, to me a lot of Peace and blessings to the underclass Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and

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

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

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

Now, we're gonna continue on to complete the

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

lesson on

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

fasting.

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

Or we said also the other name for it is CME.

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

And we

00:00:50--> 00:01:03

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

00:01:05--> 00:01:13

consciousness of God consciousness on Arabic, it's called taqwa. This was the growth of fasting. This is what the law says in the law.

00:01:15--> 00:01:46

This is the goal of factoring. Because when a person says, this is something between him a loss, on demand knows that he's fasting, because he can pretend he can eat before he leaves in the morning, while he's at work, you can sneak in the, you know, some room when nobody's watching, you can take something to eat, go in the bathroom, you can smoke a cigarette, you can do anything, you can break it up, right. But when he comes out, he appears to be fasting in front of everybody else. This is something between him and a lot. So because of that, the

00:01:47--> 00:02:03

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

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

Because the ladder society

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

function

00:02:11--> 00:02:18

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

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

I mean, it says a policeman there.

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

You fear the embarrassment of being cops, then you will not see it.

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

But if you feel that no policeman there, and you don't care whether you're caught or not, then you will see.

00:02:38--> 00:02:47

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

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

whether the opportunity presents itself or not.

00:02:54--> 00:03:18

And your fear is not being crossed and embarrassed in the society. But your fear of meeting allowed 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 it's the fear of the law, which which makes, you know, the individual, a, just an honest individual in society.

00:03:20--> 00:03:28

So this is why in a true Muslim country, it's not necessary to have the type of police force that you have seen in America,

00:03:30--> 00:03:39

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

00:03:40--> 00:04:11

six foot tall, you must weigh at least 170 pounds, you know, you have to be a boots, a monster, big man who when people see you, they fear you, and you carry all these weapons. And besides the owner, if you see the American policemen, you know, they're all the big clubs, and you know, all these bullets out and the guns and you know, the helmets, and they look like they were really hurt you if they catch you. So this is what now keeps the people from breaking the law. This is necessary there.

00:04:13--> 00:04:33

And evidence of that, of course, is, you know, the time when, about three 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, with the whole city when

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

we had television crews, you know, using the light satellite resources, you know, taking pictures of people, where people just weren't all the stores smashing into Windows, they drove up their trucks, their cars, stealing things like that. And this was not limited just to the to the poor people of this society, the rich to go to the supermarket that probably would go to the supermarket sales skills Who would think that this right, the rich people, they're going to the difference

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

stores and jewelry stores are smashing into Windows, diamonds in this sniffers the sources, but they were all driving up in their Rolls Royces and they're, you know, Mercedes and everything.

00:05:12--> 00:05:21

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

00:05:22--> 00:05:34

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

00:05:36--> 00:05:45

Right? He's a little guy, funny little guy, you know, something happens, you see him carrying away somebody that has done something, you know, he's a big guy carrying abortion to the police guy.

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

Because of the fact that the fear of God in the society so strong, that the, you know, 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.

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

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

00:06:16--> 00:06:22

the consciousness of God is in society so that if a person sees somebody doing anything that might look like it's wrong, they will report

00:06:25--> 00:06:34

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

00:06:35--> 00:06:42

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

00:06:47--> 00:06:59

this happening in New York, big cities in America. People are brutalized, in on the subway station person comes in starts battering people taking their money until everybody stands back, they don't want to get involved.

00:07:00--> 00:07:16

The attitude, whereas because of the sharing of a line in Muslim society, this would, because everybody feels they have a 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.

00:07:18--> 00:08:06

So this motivates the individual, the fear of God motivates individuals to fight against crime, with you know, whatever car goes, he has suicide against society. So set the goal of fasting, being support. There are benefits of fasting said among them, for example, that it gets in the Muslim and awareness to certain degree of poverty, and hunger, that others may feel, though 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

00:08:06--> 00:08:11

the fact that when we fast, and we deliberately we choose to put aside,

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

then

00:08:14--> 00:08:20

this gives us by when we feel the pains of hunger and sores on the stomach, which gives us an idea of what those people are going through.

00:08:22--> 00:08:28

We do it by choice, but they're not doing it by choice. That should make us even more cautious. But as I said before,

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

if we make the practice,

00:08:32--> 00:09:00

and we eat, you know, to where third jams, we can hardly read anywhere, and you're almost falling over because your stomach is so fast. If we're eating like that, and the first one we're eating in the morning, we eat a big, big, big meal, then we'll 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 he said, there are many people who gain weight in Ramadan

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

because they eat more in Ramadan and they eat outside of Ramallah.

00:09:06--> 00:09:10

So the whole principle of sympathy understanding feelings very lawless.

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

The whole principle I wrote according to the letter of the law,

00:09:16--> 00:09:31

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

00:09:34--> 00:09:48

So, if we fast properly, then inshallah we will experience that and we will have, you know, some consciousness of what those who are starving go through and that was helpless and shall have to be more generous in our wealth and sharing our wealth with others for a nice

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

we set out to that, you know, it also teaches us control

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

of our desires during the rest of the year.

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

Outside of Ramallah, we know that for the human being the most powerful desire that he has his desire for food, and the desire for sex. These are the most popular drives that an individual has, he can kill for it.

00:10:17--> 00:10:36

It killed for food, in terms of hunger, if you're starving to death, he may kill if he doesn't have any kind of fear of alarm, he's in there, he may kill people, you know, you have people, you know, being isolated, that plane crash or whatever, and they're by themselves food runs out, then they decide the weakest one amongst them, they decide to kill that person eating.

00:10:39--> 00:10:48

This is their lack of fear of Allah, this, this desire to get that food to survive, causes them to kill others. And same thing in the case of effect the desire for sex needs met you notice

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

a man who made will be married

00:10:55--> 00:11:01

or this been there many times as many girlfriends but yet the desire for sex may cause him to go and rape somebody else.

00:11:03--> 00:11:10

So these are two most times when disaster the fasting Ramadan changed us to control these most powerful desires, human beings

00:11:12--> 00:11:35

control it, so that out of the rest of revelon you know, we were not drawn into someone into evil into the corruption by these two desires. Because if you're used to holding them back, you know Malala straining tweeted Ramallah you used to hold him back outside of Ramadan, and the difficulty arises, you can control yourself, if you have no training period, no experience in trying to hold these desires back then,

00:11:36--> 00:11:41

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

00:11:45--> 00:12:08

NASA 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 a physical fact. And he said there's a hadith in which the prophets I found them you know, had said that Allah has no need for you starving yourself

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

denying yourself of

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

your thirst and your hunger he has no need for that

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

if you do not

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

give up in decent

00:12:24--> 00:12:24

talk.

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

So

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

there's this other aspect of fasting which is essentially that we should control what we speak about

00:12:40--> 00:12:47

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

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

true fasting

00:12:51--> 00:12:51

we have to do that

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

because if we're talking the way we talk

00:12:56--> 00:13:11

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

00:13:12--> 00:13:16

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

00:13:17--> 00:13:26

you know, if somebody wants 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 know you say not to do that.

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

But you really need to sit and watch it on video.

00:13:32--> 00:13:46

Because in your mind, you say they're acting but you really think about it. There is not really any difference. If you sit there and watch people climb into bed and Nikolov with each other and the video is no different than you standing in a person's chemo glasses making love to his wife in his bedroom.

00:13:48--> 00:13:55

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

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

Increase your prayer Aquila because fear in your heart. If you don't feel Chinese,

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

it's alright doesn't move you at all. If it comes down, you should pass a good pass.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

And you should avoid the kind of wounds that you have that.

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

So

00:14:17--> 00:14:24

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

00:14:26--> 00:14:43

If these don't happen, then you are doing the physical facts, fulfilling the letter of the login. But the spirit is gone. And that's fast will be a sin on you Yama, Yama, Allah will ask you about

00:14:44--> 00:14:50

it will not be with these on your on your scale of the deeds. But when your scale of evil

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

we also know that rock is a sham.

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

In fact, a person uses up collateral again saying this is the true kind of passing around where you pat yourself when you're sleeping during the day and up all night, but

00:15:13--> 00:15:33

to a person actually, then what happens during that period, the body uses up the cholesterol, it breaks it down. And they show that this helps people who have problems, heart problems, heart problems, which tend to be one of the major killers amongst men can now hide disease, you know, what's caused

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

this is from the buildup of cholesterol,

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

cholesterol in the blood,

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

because it's seen as fat in the veins and arteries. So let's have to break it down. So this is health benefits here. And also the idea of, like a machine, if you work a machine, you know, just constantly, constantly, constantly, constantly, is going to break down eventually, AI systems are machine

00:16:01--> 00:16:08

by fast, and you also give that year, every year, for a month, you give your system a break.

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

You know, you take it in the shop, get it?

00:16:14--> 00:16:29

Right, you need it, it's real. So that said unconditioned, that you're doing a proper fast, then it's the overhaul. Otherwise, it's just really an added burden you're putting on your system, if you're not doing this accordingly.

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

And of course, the fasting, you know, because of the supply chain, which is involved, it trains us for jihad, fighting in a large way. But of course, when the majority being, you know, an army of people who have fights, it's common that when people are victorious or whatever, then they become, you know, corrupt, they are running to the cities, they are murder, people are raped, the women, you know, steal this type of thing. And the desire, like which has to happen in Vietnam, is that the Vietnamese not Vietnamese, sometimes with with captured and destroy many Americans, based on the same desires, they'll have a woman for example, a North Vietnamese woman, she's, you know, maybe not

00:17:16--> 00:17:31

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 are coming in, she pulls the pin goes up, all right, whereas the Muslim soldier, you would never be drawn into that

00:17:33--> 00:17:41

you would never be drawn into that. Because of his consciousness, his training and in fact, the etc, you would never be published as a sexual designer, causing people to be destroyed.

00:17:44--> 00:18:04

So it changed because in jihad, this is one of the areas that you know, that the people who are involved in it, and that they have to be very careful of, because it's very easy to human devisor are a 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 or with other people, the tendency is to want to use that power.

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

So you had

00:18:08--> 00:18:14

a time when, without Jihad to be a benefit for you, as the mama said in the hopa said that

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

there are 100 degrees or 100 levels.

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

in Paradise, each one of them

00:18:25--> 00:18:32

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

00:18:34--> 00:18:38

And these 100 levels are reserved for those

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

with benefits with words from a loss,

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

but it only becomes benefits and rewards if the people who are fighting

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

from these types of corruptions.

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

So the first thing becomes very important to keep out to keep the Jihad pure for a law and that corruption is entered.

00:19:05--> 00:19:12

Now, after that, we talked about the sighting of the moon. And we said that in Islam, we do not follow the

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

they call the

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

Roman calendar but we don't follow in the lunar calendar, we don't follow the

00:19:23--> 00:19:29

the charts that have been set up, you know where the times are set exactly when the month ago to begin

00:19:30--> 00:19:45

the lunar calendar which is put out by astronomers at the beginning of every year, they put out a new lunar calendar for the year in which they set the month. So we don't follow that ride because we said that

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

their calculations are not 100% accurate.

00:19:50--> 00:19:58

There will always be some error in them because human beings cannot measure anything 100%

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

they will

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Always the 99 points,

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

more accurate their instruments will come

00:20:06--> 00:20:16

bigger the decimal point 9999 is more accurate 999, more accurate 999, they will never reach 100 because only a law is perfect.

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

So the calculations cannot be relied on.

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

We rely on the sizing, because the sizing is something people can do anywhere

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

in the world.

00:20:30--> 00:20:36

And of course, the complex element set down a principle that you know, if the last

00:20:37--> 00:20:39

they have shot them.

00:20:40--> 00:20:48

That is the 29th of shot that was months, lunar months are either 29 days or 30. If they're not they're shot bad becomes cloudy.

00:20:49--> 00:20:55

And this would be the time when you're looking at the moon of Ramadan, it becomes cloudy, then you assume

00:20:56--> 00:21:01

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

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

after

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

made on a general principle, later on, you might find out that really, Siobhan was 29 days.

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

Right. And

00:21:15--> 00:21:23

the first day, which you called the 30th was really the first of it, I'm alive, you may find that out later. In which case if you find it out later, right,

00:21:25--> 00:21:45

you add an extra day of fasting after Ramadan, to make up to the day that you miss. If you never found out well, then there's nothing he just went according to the principles. But what he would not do is you would not fast 31 days, the maximum days of fasting is 30 days.

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

There are some days

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

on which it is not allowable. For you to find

00:22:01--> 00:22:09

that, for example, the fact that on your mazuma. And on the east, because you're not Muslim is like the weekly eat the weekly

00:22:10--> 00:22:14

celebration, you're not allowed to accept it.

00:22:15--> 00:22:27

Or if you are fasting the day before it and the day after. So it means you got notified like Thursday, and Saturday, if you don't specify

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

Friday, almost You are

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

not allowed to bid

00:22:33--> 00:22:33

as well as

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

the other half days are forbidden to fasting. And also the last

00:22:40--> 00:22:48

three days of hatch with a call a diameter shear at 11 1213.

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

You're not allowed to fasten the seat.

00:22:56--> 00:23:00

We discussed briefly that when a person is traveling is allowed

00:23:01--> 00:23:07

with looking at that when we discuss the area concerning traveling and shortening

00:23:09--> 00:23:14

the class the person who is fasting during Ramadan, when he's traveling, he's allowed to break stuff.

00:23:15--> 00:23:24

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

00:23:25--> 00:23:42

Some people say well, if the travel is by airplane, it's very comfortable. Now, you know, it's no pressure on you about fasting, then you don't you should pass the baton as I had said that a law gave us certain concessions, and he likes that the concessions.

00:23:43--> 00:23:51

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

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

If a person is sick,

00:23:55--> 00:24:01

and you know for example, doctors have shown or he from his own experience knows he tries to find and he finds sickness increases

00:24:02--> 00:24:08

then he is allowed to break the fast and after Ramadan he makes us

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

but if the fact is the sickness is like a terminal sickness,

00:24:15--> 00:24:35

the type of sickness which is not going to get better. You know he's got what they call a terminal cancer fasting aggravated and there's no getting better. There's no time that after Ramadan you'd be able to make up those days. And what he does is he feeds a perfect person for every day of the month.

00:24:37--> 00:24:44

Or he feeds 34 people. On one day he makes a big meal in fact 34 people

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

and women woman who is pregnant or breastfeeding duckling or baby If she fears for her health or the health of the baby. She also is allowed

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

Not too fast to make the old days after Ramadan. But it should be the condition that she fears for her health. And for the baby, like the baby is very sickly or it seems to be weak, or she herself is a weak,

00:25:15--> 00:25:41

physically weak. And when she tries to fight, she finds herself, you know, breaking down she is I'm not to see the baby, etc, those type of circumstances, then she's allowed to, but just to say, Well, 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 pregnant, she automatically doesn't know, only she fears for her health, or for the health of the child. And she's allowed

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

to break the fast,

00:25:54--> 00:25:54

deliberately.

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

If it accidentally like for example, you know,

00:26:01--> 00:26:08

glass of water, you take a drink, or you start to eat in the morning, get up in the morning, you just forgot that you're fasting, you realize,

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

you This doesn't break.

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

Accidental

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

loss.

00:26:20--> 00:26:23

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

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

Because you can always pretend, right? That you didn't know and you're eating and

00:26:29--> 00:26:47

whatever, between you and Allah knows, if you really actually forgot what you did. And this includes actually having sex with your wife, although it's kind of hard to imagine that a person would forget and actually go through the whole process and have sex with his wife. And then remember afterwards.

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

It's kind of hard to imagine, but

00:26:51--> 00:27:01

people have the benefit of the doubt that if it so happens in our life, maybe the first day rolls on second day, normally just Friday night, technically possible to forget.

00:27:03--> 00:27:10

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

00:27:13--> 00:27:30

deliberate, in which you decide to decide Was that too much stomach uncertain, you you're hungry, you know, you just feel like you need to take a drink to drink, then to make up for that day that you will work in deliberately. You have to know 560 consecutive days

00:27:32--> 00:27:42

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

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

60 consecutive days, 60 days one.

00:27:53--> 00:27:59

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

00:28:01--> 00:28:07

If he didn't start Ramadan, or he deliberately breaks the south of Ramadan, is he going to 560 days

00:28:09--> 00:28:19

it's 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, right?

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

Welcome out choose, you know, over gravel and things that just, you know, some kind of physical punishment that they punish themselves to, to

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

relieve themselves of the sin accident done in Islam, again, this isn't here, but the punishment you could say or the atonement is comes from the same

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

category as the assets was supposed to have been done. So,

00:28:48--> 00:29:00

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

00:29:01--> 00:29:12

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

00:29:13--> 00:29:13

but

00:29:15--> 00:29:22

he knows that he is he will have to fight 60 days afterwards, you know and he has some fearful loss.

00:29:23--> 00:29:27

This will help him also to restrain himself from

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

now, one of the fundamental principles of fasting is known as support

00:29:37--> 00:29:44

is the light meal which is taken just before dawn. I said light

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

a light meal thick and just before dawn.

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

If a person wakes up

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

and sunrise is already there, or the light is in the sky, the advantages

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

Given already, he's not allowed to eat them yet.

00:30:05--> 00:30:24

But that needs to some people have to go to bed deliberately knowing in their mind, they have no plans to get up for support. They eat at night, 12 o'clock, one o'clock at night, they eat a big meal, they figure Okay, fellas, I don't need to get up. This is wrong. But someone said you should take this. Even if it's just a glass of water, you should take

00:30:26--> 00:30:37

this is to distinguish yourself from the juice. Others, you take this, because in other systems, it may foster 24 hours 24 hour fasts for beginners.

00:30:40--> 00:30:41

So you must take this.

00:30:43--> 00:30:46

But if you as I said oversleep, you know,

00:30:47--> 00:30:51

then it's your it's your move, there's no sin.

00:30:52--> 00:30:57

Also, if you are eating and so forth, and then we'll

00:30:58--> 00:31:04

prepare the meal to take up your glass. Or you take up your dish ready to eat, and then go

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

What do you do?

00:31:08--> 00:31:15

Ellen said, You should eat from what you have in your hand, or drinks, what you have in your hand,

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

enough to remove from yourself. The desire

00:31:26--> 00:31:30

to have the ball in your hands, either decided eating or your adult starts to eat,

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

finish to feel comfortable beaten down.

00:31:37--> 00:31:52

Okay, but I think mistakenly, maybe some of you are under the impression that if your dad goes to just have to put everything down, what it is, is you can't be then rode, you don't grow without that picking up this and picking up that and you know, to go on is right, that this is just the point, if

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

whatever you had in your hand, you had a glass in your hand or you had a dish in your hand, you finished eating from Argentina from that you have your hand, and then you put it down.

00:32:03--> 00:32:23

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 yet. But it just so happened, the sky is cloudy, you can't tell if the sky is quality.

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

In the early early morning, you can't tell just appear to you that they would send you eight and later on you found that

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

by isolating the darkness, you know,

00:32:39--> 00:32:45

in this case, there is nothing against you. Because you did not deliberately eat after

00:32:47--> 00:32:53

the coming of the dawn against the alarm. That is you according to what your intention is. He said that basically

00:32:55--> 00:33:00

she said in the middle of Albania deeds are judged by their intention.

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

The other basic principle

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

or

00:33:09--> 00:33:17

practice in the fasting is called the star. And that is to get one of the five. And this should be done immediately.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

After the setting as

00:33:21--> 00:33:29

soon as you hear the design, you should go and do it. Proper feminists said people will remain happy and prosperous as long as they hasten to break the fast.

00:33:31--> 00:33:58

And again, it is preferable that when you break the fast you take you know some dates, or some foods and water, you wait the fast then you go and pray. Then you come back and there was an article in the paper, you know, last week with one doctor was discussing fasting. And now he pointed out that they were you know mistaken ideas people say they have ulcers or different conditions in the hospital.

00:33:59--> 00:34:06

And your party God knows there's not a lot of the person follows the basic principles. If when they finish eating, he stopped and

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

then if he has any stomach problems and that person increases

00:34:11--> 00:34:25

but if he takes the light meal when baking the cake for three days or whatever, and he described it as a date. And when of course when he talks about dating, it's like anything similar to date, it could be or it could be raisins something similar.

00:34:26--> 00:34:42

Once these things are especially good for making the fast because of the fact that they give the system you know natural sugars, which are easy for a system to break down to utilize an engine and prepares the body for the meal. afterwards.

00:34:43--> 00:34:53

He has elaborate explanation about why it is good to break the fast with the slightly and also with you know some natural foods which are

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

dry which

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

You also learn

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

real fast, he said a lot of

00:35:05--> 00:35:05

people,

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

of course, for those of you who have learned

00:35:11--> 00:35:16

but those of you who have gone fast learning, know you're learning different things, it's good to learn.

00:35:18--> 00:35:18

In the nursing

00:35:21--> 00:35:24

facility, you should learn how to make this to

00:35:25--> 00:35:28

the breaking of the fast means for you.

00:35:29--> 00:36:04

And with your provision, I see all these different two hours that we're taking, whether it is before going in the bathroom, or going into the masjid, or coming out to the bathroom, or putting on your clothes, putting on your shoes, whatever we can do, as performers, is to make all of them, we can see in them a remembrance of Allah, 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 think for ourselves, which is what some ignorant people in looking at the different practices of Islamic sentiment that is in this fashion. I think all

00:36:06--> 00:36:22

this has to do that must say this must say that, you know, it's like robots, all these rituals, but normally the purpose behind it you can see, as I'm concerned, please note your things. You know, you should not be making blue eyes, etc. Without knowing what your thing is here. It is a law

00:36:23--> 00:36:26

or law for your pocket, you're trying to purify your intention

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

to clarify law and for yourself really for yourself to the Lord knows what your intention was, to remind yourself that your father was for a law

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

your size was not because everybody else is fasting.

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

A cultural,

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

the cultural fast, which has no reward from

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

the five must be for a lot. And with your provision.

00:36:54--> 00:37:08

And with your permission, I've worked in it again, you're recognizing the whatever food drink whatever you have there to get the sauce. This was from the law, you're giving thanks to the law for what he has given me. This is the value of the law.

00:37:11--> 00:37:18

in Ramadan, we have extra prayer after Asia known as Halloween

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

spirit. So are we

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

actually turabian Alistair turabian

00:37:31--> 00:37:33

these are according to the some of the

00:37:34--> 00:37:42

11 units of prayer after Asia. Some places they may make 20

00:37:44--> 00:37:48

common in a number of trades, but this has no basis in the Sunnah of the Prophet.

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

His practice was 11 this is inside Buhari.

00:37:56--> 00:38:06

I said the department with a salon never made more than 11 units of prayer after Isha and she mentioned that he will do four

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

and four

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

and then three

00:38:13--> 00:38:28

so it could be done in the form of two two and you see them for those who do 11 commonly asked every group of four they would pause for a while and then they do the next It could also be done for

00:38:29--> 00:38:31

you Don't you know you don't have to make that's the industry

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

philosophy you could actually do for us

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

and listen is highly recommended is the added fares. Because again we said in Ramadan should all of our various forms of worship a vida should try to increase the

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

nuns enough

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

lesson for this lesson fathering

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

alpha.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

Power worshiping the method is better than

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

1000 months.

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

Honestly, wow. I mean,

00:39:12--> 00:39:14

you know, if you played

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

that night,

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

it's better or worse,

00:39:20--> 00:39:23

more than or equivalent to the worship in 1000 notes.

00:39:25--> 00:39:30

That means if you pray them, you know, divide 12 into 1000, you will need to pray for the next many years now.

00:39:31--> 00:39:41

This is a very twisted approach. This is the whole purpose of dental coverage not for this purpose is for the person who's going to sink in this line.

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

Right? his worship is not for long.

00:39:47--> 00:39:58

pursue things in this life. His worship is not so long. 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

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

going to this

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

Goes visiting prostitutes, they just have it, they're in America.

00:40:05--> 00:40:18

And you try to speak to your brother in law, you know, control yourself. You're, you're Muslim, you know. So don't worry, don't don't worry about this, you know, when we go back, we go and Nick O'Meara and remove that in

00:40:21--> 00:40:28

is a frickin idea in their minds. They can do all the corruption, and then go back and make ombre. Why?

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

Because she

00:40:32--> 00:40:34

said, That's from ombre, ombre.

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

But what can

00:40:44--> 00:40:45

he talking about?

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

The one fear of the law, and does

00:40:52--> 00:41:02

not a person who feels that the ritual, he doesn't hear a lot because there is an American culture obviously doesn't he's not even thinking about a lot. So there's no fear of a lawyer.

00:41:04--> 00:41:09

So it's all my one year ritual, he is going through the physical act of going around the Kaaba and these are things

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

that will not remove any

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

distortion and also there is

00:41:19--> 00:41:25

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

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

look and guarantee what happens

00:41:33--> 00:41:57

similarly, this light of how we seek it, we do extra worship, so that inshallah insincere worship, our worship may match that night and we get an added reward. These are added rewards. 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.

00:41:59--> 00:42:01

We know that, for example,

00:42:02--> 00:42:05

prayer in Mecca is worth

00:42:10--> 00:42:11

100,000

00:42:17--> 00:42:19

matches is worth 1000

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

prayer and matches up self worth 500 times.

00:42:28--> 00:42:33

So, Allah has given certain values to these

00:42:34--> 00:42:39

prayer in the masjid in Jamaica is worth 20,000 Times Square at your home.

00:42:41--> 00:43:06

So, different acts different times different places, wherein 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. The ritual is the sense in which you are without the spirit is a sin against yourself.

00:43:10--> 00:43:13

Okay, inshallah, this covers the

00:43:15--> 00:43:22

main principles of Ramadan goes there any questions, you know, you'd like to ask concerning, or Milan,

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

the capital.

00:43:46--> 00:44:03

Okay, now the capital put in we'll cover that in more detail. Next, sitting because you're going to do the cast will do the character work. And after looking at the whole, we'll also look at the cast. So you know, so as not to repeat ourselves. You're coming next Friday.

00:44:05--> 00:44:05

So we'll cover

00:44:09--> 00:44:11

if tomorrow is the capital than I do right now.

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

Yeah.

00:44:22--> 00:44:25

Yeah, we'll discuss it. We'll go through it.

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

Any other questions concerning from Oregon, or

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

anything outside of Ramadan

00:45:01--> 00:45:05

Know, the feeling the feeling of a person,

00:45:07--> 00:45:11

which will be in the case where your sickness will not

00:45:13--> 00:45:24

get better, since you're already on your way old and you're physically weak, that you can try to find to find yourself like you're about to die. So you say I can't find,

00:45:25--> 00:45:41

or, for example, you are under intravenous treatment, you know, you're, you're 30, you're lying, and they give you intravenous intravenous, you're feeding yourself passively. So you can't stop, right? these circumstances where there's no, this is a constant state that you're in,

00:45:43--> 00:45:50

then you do the figure, where you feed a poor person for every day of

00:45:51--> 00:46:07

Ramadan, 30 days, right. whereas in the case of a person who is just sick temporarily, you know, the sickness is going to come back, no, go away after sometimes, then if you miss some days, besides the sickness, or you missed the horror of Ramadan because of sickness, once you get rather than you

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

know, then you fat

00:46:10--> 00:46:11

then you have the sausages.

00:46:14--> 00:46:19

Some people heard that not only the fact that you also pay, you know, you give the CD as well.

00:46:22--> 00:46:25

But what is most obvious is that, at least you will,

00:46:36--> 00:46:42

we're taking medicine is the medicine involved something that you're drinking, or intravenous.

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

Right, then.

00:46:49--> 00:46:55

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

00:46:58--> 00:47:11

Well, if it is an injection, for example, they give you an injection of vitamin C, or you get an injection, or traveling you get some antibiotics, or no vaccination, these

00:47:14--> 00:47:14

people have said this,

00:47:16--> 00:47:18

because the whole idea is

00:47:20--> 00:47:26

to take something which is which involved in his food, that you're taking food, you're joking, or you're eating

00:47:28--> 00:47:34

in the game, instead, because you can stick it in your mouth, it's being put in your veins, liquid is going in and giving you glucose,

00:47:35--> 00:47:41

food, you're feeding your system, whereas in the case of a medicine is in the form of vaccinations,

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

students

00:48:02--> 00:48:05

well, naturally, because this would be like food

00:48:07--> 00:48:15

would be covered under the same category as food, it's not out of sickness, right? A lot of need, the body needs to protect itself from some germs.

00:48:16--> 00:48:27

This is like food. And this is stimulus. Taking it that wave is that you are actually putting in some currency in your body to give your body strength, some food, so to the to the breaking

00:48:55--> 00:48:58

all of your work together, they're not going to get

00:48:59--> 00:49:05

you know, if you're too poor, and you're sick, you can't fulfill the facts and you can't get

00:49:06--> 00:49:07

when

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

you have.

00:49:13--> 00:49:17

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

00:49:18--> 00:49:23

assist us in the case witnesses in the case with a man who has sexual relations with his wife

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

and

00:49:27--> 00:49:35

said, we're looking you up to 560 days. But he explained to him that his desire is historically bad or the habits caused him to

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

break the past in the first place. He had to go.

00:49:41--> 00:49:46

Okay, well, in this case, the person said Well, okay, then you must

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

feed

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

60 people. He said, you know, 64 people, he said brown the poorest person in the area

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

under

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

the guise of security had been given

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

Earlier

00:50:01--> 00:50:02

couches made from

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

the fact that this was his second step.

00:50:13--> 00:50:19

Flexible in the sense of recognizing a person's circumstance not demanding of them, that which he is unable to do

00:50:27--> 00:50:31

it Be careful not to swallow machetes, and he should spit them

00:50:32--> 00:50:37

out. But the process along with that, based on the fact that he used to make

00:50:38--> 00:50:39

us used

00:50:41--> 00:50:42

to stick us,

00:50:43--> 00:50:45

he said, when you're gargling

00:50:46--> 00:50:57

inside things, you shouldn't let the water go to the back of your head. Normally, when you gotta go, you should. He said, you know that you should be accepted in your garden. And a lot of people in a garden when they're watching them, I don't

00:50:59--> 00:51:01

know, when you put the water in your mouth, he should.

00:51:03--> 00:51:07

He should clean out the back of your mouth.

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

That's the proper way to do it. Except Nirmala

00:51:12--> 00:51:16

sitharaman the environment, you just now take it in your mouth and spit it out.

00:51:17--> 00:51:19

But if you're doing that normally you're not doing it correctly.

00:51:23--> 00:51:27

You should you should be accepted in it should do it right, get it right in the darkness.

00:51:30--> 00:51:40

Before spitting it out, cleaning out your mouth. Because if you just do, like literally the whole backpacking desert, which is where a lot of the German salsa was collected, locally, you're getting a source of it, where does it come from?

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

It's all done at that site, isn't it

00:51:44--> 00:51:56

when you get all the wood the new person also moved in the back part of the circuit. This is the proper what they call knob number in Arabic The proper way is to take it back

00:51:59--> 00:52:03

when you take it it's been sharply flicking the water again Sunday was

00:52:06--> 00:52:08

supposed to you're supposed to god

00:52:09--> 00:52:11

it's not the inhale the water.

00:52:12--> 00:52:14

You take it up into your nose

00:52:15--> 00:52:20

as you're gonna be allowed right near the point you know to stop the choke yourself

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

up into you know, right up to the back part of the nose.

00:52:25--> 00:52:25

And then

00:52:31--> 00:52:38

and one point to note also in making rebou that wiping the back of the neck is not some

00:52:42--> 00:52:49

some people when they're making after watching the fitness, wrap the head, the neck like this and the back of the neck.

00:52:55--> 00:52:58

Somebody may say well, what's wrong? You know why even

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

in the back of this

00:53:02--> 00:53:06

thing is right there, okay? Why don't wash your hand all with Deontay.

00:53:07--> 00:53:09

Wilder wash your foot all the way up your knees

00:53:13--> 00:53:13

and teach that.

00:53:16--> 00:53:21

The thing is that if you wash your foot when you wash above your foot, it's no harm in it.

00:53:22--> 00:53:32

In the sense that when you're rushing, you're supposed to wash at least your ankles, right? If you increase it, there's no harm. But now you teach that as what you people are supposed to do. And it becomes bigger

00:53:35--> 00:53:55

in the sense of your life in your head, and Emma says a wrap your head your head and goes off the back of the neck. There is no harm. If he just did that, like they would sweat on the back of your neck. You just did that too. But now that becomes your regular practice and you teach that to others you feel it that's what you're supposed to do. And then you making the call or innovation in religion

00:53:58--> 00:54:00

in Islam is very, in a way

00:54:02--> 00:54:04

careful about not having any addition.

00:54:05--> 00:54:14

Prophet Mohammed Gosselin, he's the one who brought Islam and this is what keeps Islam pure and tiamo tiama because once you open the door for all these things, there's no end

00:54:15--> 00:54:17

and this is what happened to Christianity.

00:54:18--> 00:54:21

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

00:54:23--> 00:54:27

They didn't keep to center, they went against the sinner and

00:54:29--> 00:54:34

added innovations dropping added things until now that they're practicing is unrecognizable.

00:54:36--> 00:54:40

And then it needs to come to the into the practice and govern themselves.

00:54:41--> 00:54:46

I mean, he would not recognize this from you know, religious practices when he couldn't move it's unrecognizable.

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

Any other personal say that

00:54:55--> 00:54:56

we love

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

So

00:55:15--> 00:55:16

he said that this was an angel.

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

I saw he said he was injured. He said he was among the among the difference between the two, because he believes were the jinn. But he was among the angels and now head

00:55:34--> 00:55:53

had raised his station, given him a position, Lucky position, because of certain knowledge and abilities that he has over the rest of the gym. And that had given him the right to be among the angels. He was among them in their group. This is where a lot said yeah, he was saying that the

00:55:55--> 00:56:04

angels to bow down. But it is not the case. Then I tell the operator

00:56:08--> 00:56:11

and he will also tell him that he did not.

00:56:27--> 00:56:29

Yeah, it's worth a Jin.

00:56:30--> 00:56:35

Jin has a choice between believing or not believing

00:56:37--> 00:56:37

a belief

00:56:39--> 00:56:42

was wet and refusing to obey God.

00:56:43--> 00:56:45

He became a Belgian.

00:56:46--> 00:56:48

Up until that point, he was not a badger.

00:56:52--> 00:56:55

He was not an angel. It says right in the can and you know, Jean

00:56:57--> 00:57:26

Klein says specifically that in wealth agents, and he believes in his explanation, he even said when Allah asked him, Why didn't you bow out and he said, because he was made you made him a phrase and you made me fire and we know the angels are made from lights, or Gosselin said that angels are nice and light and the jinn are made from smokeless fire or fire not fire as we know you light a match five to the gym is nothing

00:57:27--> 00:57:43

but a elemental fire. It could be you know, nuclear fire or whatever, you know, but a fire which is smokeless is not defined that we know, in regular life. Some people may ask, how could they go to the outside the bat jinsan on fire, you're gonna

00:57:45--> 00:57:56

help us? Well, the point is that it's not a problem. Because you know, are you in a fun play, right? But I can take a piece of play that's been hardened and smash your kidney with it.

00:57:58--> 00:58:15

So the fact that you are made from closure doesn't mean you can't be harmed by clay. That just means that's what your origin was. Your origin was claimed but are you a piece of clay rocking around? No, no, that's your origin. Similarly, the Jim's origin was fire but it doesn't mean that they just fire about the flag or some fire

00:58:17--> 00:58:18

station concept.

00:58:19--> 00:58:26

But the belief was among what the gym was given certain

00:58:27--> 00:58:37

powers and certain abilities which Allah made him higher and greater than the rest of the gym.

00:58:39--> 00:59:03

Just like among Angel, certain angels are given greater powers and the other angels like Jimmy Gabriel, given more powers and more responsibility than the others. Similarly, a blues was given greater responsibilities such among vision and he was allowed to be among the angels so he was with the angels in the command was given his power of the Canon Malacca

00:59:05--> 00:59:06

issue the other

00:59:08--> 00:59:10

clouds to the angels

00:59:12--> 00:59:13

among them,

00:59:14--> 00:59:17

bout Adam and they all did except for

00:59:20--> 00:59:34

unless you know, Islamic context, this is looked at as the original sin. If there is an original sin in Islam, it is the pride of the police because that's what led him to not bow.

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

You know, in talking with people when they talk about Original Sin, you should be important to clarify that for

01:00:00--> 01:00:20

For non Muslims, Christians, etc. The idea that when you talk about in Christianity original sin in Islam, we have no original sin in the sense that you have a sin which is an inherited generation after generation. We have no sin like that. But original meaning the first Yes, we have the first thing that was that

01:00:21--> 01:00:33

when he refused about Adam, and his refusal was based on trial, as well, as Elena said that anyone who has a mustard seeds worth applied will not enter Paradise

01:00:38--> 01:00:48

applied over out of race, or out of country or any of these, these satisfy where you feel you're superior to others. This destroys your Eman

01:00:50--> 01:01:01

because of the losses and kohan in Chroma come in, at 41 run was most mobile in a lot of sites is the one who fears a lot
