Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah

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

wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. While earlier he was a woman whether her mother had

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

my brothers and sisters said Mr. De Kumara Mata while he was about a cattle

00:00:18--> 00:00:52

I hope everyone is doing well insha Allah to Allah. Today is Friday, April the ninth 2021 and we are resuming our class on a Ramadan preparation, Ramadan preparation what exactly do we need to know with regards to this blessed month of Ramadan? How should we prepare for this month of Ramadan we discussed last week. Today I want to focus on some of the benefits of this month and then just open up for a general discussion and questions if anyone has any questions with regards to the month of Ramadan.

00:00:54--> 00:01:02

For those who were able to tune in to the ju mahatva earlier today, you notice that my hubbub revolved around

00:01:05--> 00:01:51

revolved around forgiveness of our sins, right? And we mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mun sama Ramadan and Eamon and we're at surber who fear Allah who mattock, Adam, I'm in Zambia, whoever fasts the month of Ramadan with amen firm belief and seeking reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala add a whole field or level meta Cardamom in Zambia, Allah Subhana Allah forgives for that person there are sins from the previous year as in what has come before that. We also see the Prophet sallallahu assenza mentions a follower telecoms will do more to either Juma will move on you know, Ramadan mocha for autumn been either Tony Bertil. Either Tony

00:01:51--> 00:02:13

bettin Cara. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says from the daily prayers to the next one right what's in between the daily prayers and from Juma to Rama to tomorrow and from Ramadan. Ramadan what happens in between those is forgiveness from Allah subhana wa tada so long as we stay away from the major sins.

00:02:14--> 00:02:38

So one of the benefits of this month of Ramadan is to seek forgiveness from our sins and our mistakes of the past. We highlighted that throughout the Juma football earlier today, we also see a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to the benefits of fasting and how its reward is not limited, okay, how the reward for fasting is not limited.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

As the Allah

00:02:42--> 00:02:57

mentions in this society as well as in Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are the messengers of Allahu Allah, who was sending them to Allah Subhana way to add, I said, all the deeds of the children of Adam are for them, except for fasting, which is for me,

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

as in for Allah, right.

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

And I will give the reward for it, and fasting is a shield. So the person observing fast, should avoid relations with their spouse, and should not behave foolishly. And if somebody fights with him or with her, or abuses that person, that person should say, I'm fasting so that they know that they should not, you know, harm this person or take advantage of them. And then he continues and says, by him, whose hands the soul of Muhammad are in, this smell coming out of the mouth of the fasting person is better to Allah than the smell of Musk, there are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of his bar, while breaking one's fast, and the other at the time when he will meet

00:03:49--> 00:04:29

his Lord, He then or then he will be pleased because of his fasting. So the person who's fasting wills will feel that pleasure at the time, of course of breaking your fast, you feel Alhamdulillah you feel satisfied, you did this for the sake of Allah, how many times we fast throughout the month of Ramadan? And when we reach, you know, three quarters throughout the day, we start to question whether we will be able to make it throughout the next few hours. Sometimes it's a day that you worked really hard to sometimes a day that you are just not feeling good. It may have been the fact that you didn't sleep enough the night before. Maybe you didn't drink enough water at Soho, maybe

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

you completely slept through Soho, and you didn't get enough time to wake up and eat or to

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

to even hydrate yourself properly. And so sometimes we feel halfway through the day or three quarters throughout the day. That it's super difficult and we start to question. Oh, my headache is too hard. It's too severe, right? It's too difficult for me to get through this. I'm extremely thirsty. I've got to go to work. I have class I have a whole bunch of things going on. Will I be able to make it through this day of fasting and sometimes shavonne really mess

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

is with us, right? We start to make excuses. We start to

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

say things like, Oh, you know,

00:05:08--> 00:05:47

I'm not feeling well, I have a headache and a headache is sickness, right? It's due to an illness so therefore I'm exempt from fasting, right person's headache gets super super severe, they might start to consider that as an option. And we know very well Allah Subhana Allah says, Ramadan, the lady on the left who called an orderliness you will be Nina timolol who they will work on and show him in coma Shahada yes on Omen kana Maria one hour Allah seven infected to mean IDM over a loss of hanway to add SS from an kana Mariela so whoever is sick from in Canada, Maria been Oh Allah suffer or is traveling, very determined, I am in Ohio, right that that person should make up that day or those

00:05:47--> 00:05:57

days of fasting after the month of Ramadan has ended. So they need to re fat not really fast, but make up that day that the midst of fasting. Now

00:05:58--> 00:06:36

the fact that that's there in place. Sometimes as you know, believers, when we're going through a difficult day of fasting, we start to make excuses for ourselves and shape on really gets to us where every single excuse in the book starts to come out, like, Oh, I feel like I'm gonna throw up all I feel like I'm not going to be able to do this. And what's really interesting is, and you'll notice, we all know it, a lot of the time, if you simply just take a small nap, right, you just go in, you take a nap, you sleep for half an hour, one hour, you feel so refreshed, right, you feel as though you're ready to go, you know, all the energy has come back into your some of the energy has

00:06:36--> 00:07:09

come back into you mentally psych yourself out as well, you tell yourself, hey, one hour just went by that quickly. So I should be able to get through the next two or three hours. And then so kind of why you realize that you're actually able to, you know, make it through to the end of the day. So one of the times that have been feels extreme pleasure in fasting is at that moment of breaking your fast, especially at one of the difficult days, right? Where Alhamdulillah you finally get that water in your hand and you're like is that then we'll tell it in a row Cotabato. Insha Allah Bismillah

00:07:14--> 00:07:48

Alhamdulillah and you can feel the water going not only down your throat, you can feel the going to your ears to your head down into your arms, reaching your fingers and your toes, right? This is like our whole body just feels replenished all of a sudden. Now, that's an amazing, beautiful aspect of fasting, the pleasure that you receive. At the end of the day, if thought seeing the food in front of you. Even if it's just something small hamdulillah you get to eat it right. And so hello, when when we think of it like how many days have like that throughout the month of Ramadan.

00:07:49--> 00:08:28

Some people might say I have that every weekday because I go to work. And it's extremely hard. Other people will say you know what I feel B once or twice every single week. You know, everything varies. But remember, some people don't have food, right? Some people don't have food. And so leaving something small, even if it's just a little bit of water, a sip of water in some dates, that replenishes the body, the body refreshes our mind and ours our spirits, we're ready to give back to Allah subhana wa tada even more. And so my brothers and sisters, that's one of the times that we see the profit so long it was on dimensions is a time of pleasure for the person who's fasting. And the

00:08:28--> 00:08:56

time is when we meet the loss of Henry data and we see the rewards that we gained from fasting, right the rewards that we gain from fasting are so great. One of the gates of Jenna rite of Paradise is known as the gates of Ryan. And those are the gates that people who are fasting will enter through. So that is of course you know, some of the blessings of the month of Ramadan and some of the benefits it's fasting.

00:08:58--> 00:09:17

Another thing that we learn from that is the scent of the fasting person. The scent of the mouth of the fasting person is sweeter to Allah subhana wa tada than the scent of the sweetest musk right. Now some people will think to themselves, well, that's kind of weird. Like,

00:09:18--> 00:09:47

how is it that the scent of the smell coming out of a person's mouth that we can't stand honestly, and it reminds me I was supposed to make a tic Tock post about something really interesting. I'll do it later and shot a lot of data. You know, how is it that the center that comes out of a fasting person's mouth that's so nasty, alright, and this one I'm alone We're gonna have an interesting Ramadan because if we're going to be indoors, we'll have to be wearing masks and imagine fasting while wearing

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

well wearing a mask for the whole day. Right? You're just like, oh,

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

like every single time you exhale you're thinking to yourself, I rubella are also Billa but think

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

to yourself.

00:10:02--> 00:10:42

First off, many of us don't really smell the scent of our own mouth. Right? So it's sometimes it's an indication I remember hearing one of the scholars mentioned once that it takes another person to point out our mistakes. And it takes a good friend, a good colleague, someone who fears the loss of hanaway data, who trusts the loss of hanaway to Anna, and knows that he tell their Muslim brother or sister the truth and something that's beneficial to them, like a fault or a flaw that they find within them for them to correct themselves. Sometimes it takes another person to recognize the mistakes are the flaws of us as human beings. So when you smell the scent of your own breath, or the

00:10:42--> 00:11:31

breath of someone else, which we probably won't, you know, the smelling this aroma vonix for immediate family members know that it's not the actual scent that comes out of the mouth, that is sweet to Allah subhana wa Tada. It is the fact that that scent is coming out due to exertion, in fasting due to submission in fasting due to refraining from eating and from desires and from things that Allah Subhana Allah has made halaal for us throughout the rest of the year. The fact that we are submitting to Allah in this and that something negative is coming out from us, yet we continue to go on we bear it we go through it right we push through we plow through Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

appreciates, right? He?

00:11:36--> 00:12:09

How does he show us his appreciation Allah subhana wa tada blesses us in return with forgiveness, right as we learned at the very beginning of today's session. So it is not the scent, specifically or literally, that Allah subhanho widad loves. It's the sacrifice that the believer is making. and due to that sacrifice, the scent is coming out that scent is being emitted from the mouth of the believing Muslim, brother, or sister or Muslim or Muslim, I should say.

00:12:13--> 00:12:23

What else can we go over? And again, remember, I'm going to be opening it up for q&a in sha Allah. So please feel free to write your questions and okay.

00:12:26--> 00:13:14

The fasting as Allah Subhana Allah says in that Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the actions of human beings belong to them, except for fasting for that is with Allah subhana wa Tada. And so you do a good deed of loss of animal data tells you how much it's multiplied by, right you do another good deed, plus 180 How much is multiplied by regards to fasting, a good action is multiplied by up to 700 times except for fasting, for it is done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he will reward it accordingly. So we receive even more, if Allah Subhana Allah chooses so to bless us and to grant us with more rewards than 700 times the rewards that we would have

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

received for that day of fasting.

00:13:20--> 00:13:43

I think I'll leave it at that in sha Allah to add a few things that I wanted to share with you while you know you write some some questions down. Feel free to open up, you know, discussion on a topic you might have questions about your children or yourself fasting might be sisters who have specific questions with regards to it, feel free to type those in there in the chat session.

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

Section, some chat set or comment section on Instagram.

00:13:49--> 00:14:20

Feel free to type that in there. Please do keep in mind as well, that Sunday evening, we will have our essential fit class and we will go over a few more of the thick aspects of fasting. And then again, have a q&a session the last one that we'll have before the month of Ramadan actually begins. I know a lot of people have been asking this question and so I won't wait for someone to type it in. I will answer it on my own before you type anything in and while you are typing things in.

00:14:26--> 00:14:27


00:14:28--> 00:14:46

a question that has come up very frequently and continues to arise is whether it is permissible to take the COVID-19 vaccine while fasting. So as of right now the COVID-19 vaccines that we do have here within Canada Pfizer, moderna AstraZeneca

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

the mRNA vaccine

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

those vaccines are permitted to take while we are fasting and it does not break the fast Okay, this is what the scholars

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

have been discussing and the conclusion that we've seen from the scholars and of course when we look at the principles of fic anything that goes you know, into the mouth down the down the esophagus into the stomach, that would break the fast and anything that is taken like an injection, some sort of vitamin or nutrient neutral treat nutrients or nutrient has some sort of nutritional value, some sort of supplement or vitamins

00:15:29--> 00:15:41

that would break the fast, but the COVID-19 vaccine does not break the fast according to many of the scholars that you'll reach out to and ask.

00:15:42--> 00:15:52

And so that's something that I thought I would share with you. Another question that has come up is will we be doing a class after one hour before if thought every single day?

00:15:53--> 00:16:20

So the answer to that is yes, in sha Allah to add every single day one hour before if thought I will be live streaming and doing a quarter an tafsir class basically pulling out lessons that we will learn from the judges of the day. So if it's the first day of Ramadan, the first Joseph it's the second day of Ramadan the second Joseph okay. And that's how we'll go about it in sha Allah who tada

00:16:23--> 00:16:31

and I'll do that again for people who are going to ask What time is it at? It will be one hour we'll start to one hour before if thought

00:16:33--> 00:16:51

here in Milton, okay so not in you know, Vancouver or Australia or anywhere else. So one hour before if thought our time which is roughly going to be around seven o'clock pm on the first days of Ramadan, roughly around 7pm in sha Allah how to add

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

there's a blood test to break the fast no blood test does not break the fast.

00:17:14--> 00:17:19

Lake Como Santa Monica de la obra CAPTCHA. So ignore the username

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

are your Ameen and sisters Otto's uncle?

00:17:30--> 00:17:31


00:17:34--> 00:17:35

You're calling me uncle.

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

If you have a question, type it in Java dad. Okay.

00:17:42--> 00:18:27

Another question. Will you be running the Quran contest last night? Okay, so we will be doing the Quran quest quiz this Ramadan, but we will not be doing in the last 10 days, we will do it in the middle 10 days of Ramadan. Okay, we'll do it in the middle 10 days of Ramadan. And that's to motivate people to use the middle of the month of Ramadan. A lot of us get very lazy and we stop doing things throughout the middle of the month of Ramadan. So in order to help us to continue to benefit and maximize and use that middle part of the blessed month, we will insha Allah Allah have the N quest quiz. Which reminds me, I need to do some work on that. And my wife is going to question

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

as soon as I get home

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

where she's probably just messing now.

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

And so on, basically, what would that done in sha Allah? Okay.

00:18:41--> 00:18:47

There's also an amazing opportunity to search through the Quran and learn more. Yes, definitely. Alhamdulillah so we'll be doing that inshallah. Okay.

00:18:53--> 00:18:58

Good. So I'll give it another shot. If anyone has any questions, feel free to type them in there.

00:18:59--> 00:19:08

And then if not, I'll end the session. reason why I'm keeping it super short is the air conditioning of my office is not and I'm literally

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

very hot in here, right? It's really, really hot in here spot a lot.

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

So any last questions and Sharla There we go. My wife says I'm in trouble when I go and

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

got to work on that inquest quiz. I'm getting surgery done. So I will skip fast and planning on making after. Is that a right way to do it? Okay, so if you are having surgery, and you know, during that time and the recovery of it might take some time, until you're able to regain the strength and the ability to fast once again. So yes, you would just keep track of the days that you miss out on and then after the month of Ramadan sometime throughout the next few months. Make sure that you make up those days of fasting that you missed.

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

Okay, try to finish them off sooner rather than later.

00:20:12--> 00:20:26

So I'm gonna ask a question for all of you that are on YouTube and Facebook, how is the picture quality on the live stream? So I know I'm still live streaming to 1234566 different destinations.

00:20:28--> 00:20:42

But just very curious how the picture quality is for you on YouTube and Facebook today because I'm using a different camera. And that's why you notice the angle is slightly different.

00:20:43--> 00:20:57

Might have to rearrange my office after it I'm avant, but that's the camera I'm gonna be using throughout the month of Ramadan and shot a lot of data. So I've been testing it out today tested it at joumana seemed like it worked. Well. Have that hooked up with the microphone right here.

00:20:58--> 00:21:09

Mic check, Mic check, test, one, two, test. One, two. And so there we go. We'll be using that throughout the month of Ramadan. Hopefully everything goes well.

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

And of course, typical when asked a question, no one wants to reply even though I asked how the sound and the picture is. We'll see if anyone actually type something in there, Shama.

00:21:28--> 00:21:41

So for those of you that are wondering, in the meantime, the notes for that I'm Yvonne tough seat are all here. Ready to go under the law. I actually have two sets of notes. I have

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

how many pages are here? I don't know.

00:21:50--> 00:21:59

40 740-849-5051 pages here and another

00:22:07--> 00:22:44

32 pages here. So 51 and 32 6070 8083 pages, ready to go shot a lot of notes for the Tafseer class and shall not have to add Okay, can we get video money to everyone or Mesac in Sofia should go towards feeding people who need the food. Okay, so if someone is feeding someone for a day that they missed for example, they're not able to fast then that should go towards people who need that food and not giving it to people who already have food people who are not even need okay.

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

Okay, so you're saying that Instagram has better quality video? I do understand that but we'll try and get that sorted and shallot.

00:22:58--> 00:23:19

Pictures very clear, it's good to have the larger Xochimilco phaedon limited and set up and Hina hamdulillah. crave, we will I was just going to end the class kensico money be giving to non Muslims no Zakat is for the Muslims is a cat is to be to the Muslims.

00:23:22--> 00:23:47

Okay, all right, we'll end the class there in sha Allah Jazakallah will Faden for tuning in. Again, Sunday nights, we'll go over some of the thick aspects of the month of Ramadan, and finish off some things that we started last week. And then we'll leave it at that and have one last open q&a session for anyone who wants to ask anything. And then Ramadan in sha Allah. Hi, Jana. I'm surprised I want to ask right.

00:23:48--> 00:23:57

So someone's asking this question. I'll answer it right before I finish, but I'm surprised No one asked when does Amazon start? What will be the first night What will be used that?

00:23:59--> 00:24:39

So some fun is asking are diabetics allowed to fast so everyone must fast except for people who have an exception, or they are exempt from fasting due to some sort of exceptional circumstance that they have or they're going through. So as Muslims, anyone who's mature, who's able, who's healthy and so on must fast. Someone who has diabetes might it depends on on the type of diabetes that a person has. I would suggest that you speak to a doctor more particularly if you have the ability to reach out to a Muslim doctor and ask them whether they suggest based on your condition.

00:24:40--> 00:24:55

You are able or should be fasting throughout the month of Ramadan. One thing that's really interesting is that I found that many people who do have diabetes who have fasted throughout the month of Ramadan have felt that it has helped to regulate the

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

their sugar

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

levels, right? It's helped to regulate their sugar levels. But again, seek medical advice from the doctors to you to be sure that you're not going to be doing anything that is harmful to your health or could simply, you know do more damage. Are we allowed to decorate our houses from Oban? Yes, you're allowed to decorate your houses for it. I'm Yvonne. And I would actually encourage that you make an offer on a special, amazing, you know, make make it feel like it's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala had an amazing time throughout the year. And so your children grow to appreciate and to love Ramadan?

00:25:37--> 00:26:10

Yes, we do know that our religion teaches us simplicity. But simplicity doesn't mean that we are not allowed to, to look good to beautify ourselves and to beautify our homes and to clean up and decorate to look good to feel good to celebrate the coming of a blessing month. Okay. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Lucha genieten your head will Jamal, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty he loves when we do things that are nice, and that we take care of ourselves as well. Okay.

00:26:13--> 00:26:21

Hold us We'll end there. They're just a common level Hayden subhanak Allahumma will be handig natural Illa Illa Illa and then I still feel Pamela to be like
