Ramadan has the outer aspect,

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

the physical

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

where we don't eat or drink, or have sexual relations after

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

the dawn begins

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

until the setting of the salon

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

that is the physical,

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

we avoid food, drink,

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

sexual relations, and things that lead to it until the setting of the salon.

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


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

the inner aspects of the fast

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

the purpose for which a law has prescribed that

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

can only be achieved.

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

If we are conscious of what

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

the soul of the past is.

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

If we're not conscious, we're not aware.

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

We're only thinking that fasting is not eating and drinking,

00:01:22--> 00:01:27

in the daylight hours, eating and drinking before I need to go drinking after

00:01:30--> 00:01:40

then we will not attain or achieve the soul, the essence the heart of fasting.

00:01:42--> 00:01:50

We will have fulfilled the legal requirement shediac according to the Shetty app, we fasted

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

that legal requirement is fulfilled, you will not be required to make this fast over again. But

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

if we do not grasp the essence of the fast

00:02:10--> 00:02:24

the soul of Ramadan, then we do not earn for ourselves any reward. All we have done is removed the obligation of fasting from ourselves. That's all
