Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Taala mattino, Sunday Sunday Mahalia ashrafi India University Nabina Muhammad in la sala to attend with a slim and about my brothers and sisters in Islam ascent Mr. La Kumara to light your candle
today I think is a day where Subhanallah many of us feel emotional emotional for the,
the wrapping up of the month of Ramadan, as well as emotional for those that were performing at decaf, because I'm pretty sure even though they're happy to get home to their families, you know, you still feel the loss of, of not being in the masjid and you know, the the beautiful relationships that you made throughout the time that you were, you know, here performing Africa, you got to know some people that have the lows, very good. And it's important for us to try and maintain those relationships in sha Allah to hide it after the month of Ramadan. I know many people that I speak to, like brother said Hasnain who's not here right now. He always talks about stories of when he
performed an article many years ago with another friend of mine. And you know, for most people, they will always remember their their memories of decaf, because it's a time where you know, you connect with a loss of Hanalei, Dinah and you connect with people who are doing the exact same thing. So everyone is on the same page, and shalonda Tana and it's it's a beautiful relationship to maintain inshallah,
today, we're going to,
we're going to discuss a few things with regards to the day of evil fifth, or,
you know, the finishing of the month of Ramadan in sha Allah to Allah. And we'll finish a little bit early to allow time for drop. It's the last part of the month of Ramadan. So we want to benefit as much as we possibly can from the month of Ramadan, and the last few moments of Antarctica for those that are here.
we know very well, tomorrow in short, a long title will be the David eat. And there's a couple of things that are important for us to do on the Dave eat. In fact, there's one thing that's important for us to do before the actual prayer before Salah tiller eat, right, and that is to pay our Zach Captain fitter. So a lot of people become very confused between the cat and the cat to fit them, or soda bottle fitter, right. So the cattle fentanyl is what you pay on. Or just before the day of eat, or could even be on the morning of eat if you can actually, you know, have the the food distributed in that sense. I know in many countries, it's easy to do that, like when I was in Medina, you would
easily just walk to the masjid in the morning.
You know on the way going to muster the Navy and you can buy purchase bags of rice and you know different types of food and you can give it to the families that are in need because they're standing around waiting for it or you can go and distribute it yourself. But over here becomes a little bit more challenging. So as a cattle fitter is just an amount that is specified based on a meal. But you have to pay that for each person in your family. Now ideally, you would give the food and not the money but because we live in Canada because it's very difficult for us to give that food to poor people in you know Muslim families so that they can enjoy having a meal with their families
on the day of eat. It becomes a little bit difficult to do that. So what we do is our massage obviously collected so there's the boxes on the outside for a sec how to fit them. And I believe it's how much is it here? 10 here, right? Because I noticed in some massages, it's $8 so pay the $10 is better for you more reward don't go in and find a mustard for eight and pay the eight pay the 10 and shot a long time and you get more rewards
as opposed to as opposed to what does fit for me. So we say the captain fit or you didn't fit on? What does that mean? Does anyone know?
Does anyone know what it is?
Okay, what does the word What does word fit on me? Like so we say if thought time
right? So if BOD is the time where you eat like having football which is breakfast in Arabic, the same letters you'll notice fat bought up right so football is breakfast if thought is having that food that you eat when you're breaking your fast in the afternoon and most of the time
either flipper is there eat where you get to
chug food right you get to munch away all day long. And is the catalyst is the the sadaqa that you give to those who don't have the food so they can enjoy on either filter. And so you're giving that in terms of food to them so they can have food to eat on the day of
Eating as well. So it's a day where people get to eat and enjoy the food. It's a day of feast right a day that you know so Pamela, Allah subhana wa tada commanded us to fast first for 30 days or 29 days. And now we get to follow the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is to eat, and no one should be fasting on the day of eat, right? No one should be fasting on the day to eat, especially on the day of April 5, or, which means the day that you celebrate this celebration, where you can eat after not being capable of eating for the entire month. So either Federal Council federal, we give it in, like I said, ideally, we could give it in, it should be given in terms of food, right,
but here, we just give him money, because then the mustard now accommodates to try and distribute that food either locally or abroad. Ideally, when it comes to Zika, so is that is the 2.5% of your savings that you give that is completely different than Zach had to fit them, or sulcata and fit them or fit banana or fit or whatever, you know, term or word you want to use. They're completely different, right? So
that you can actually, you know, if there's poor people here in the handler, that's good. Or if you want to send it abroad, that's okay, as well, for zecca for the 2.5% that we give the also the origin of it is that you give it locally first, and then if there's no one locally that needs it, then you can, you know, look abroad in different places. Right. So that's, that can be done there. A lot of you might not those who have not paid your cathode fitter, hurry up and do that so that the mustard can take care of it, maybe even speak to Brother Mohammed's ahead, you know, and ask him, are they still capable of distributing it before?
before we actually pray our aid sauna, if not, then if you want to send it abroad to family through bank transfer or something, and they will distribute it a lot quicker and easier, because in you know, other countries, it's a lot easier to find poor people that are in need, we can do that. I personally this year decided to send it abroad, because there are many refugees from Rohingya that came into Malaysia, by the 1000s. And some have a you know, we distributed abroad, you know, I had our our money sent over there. And some of the brothers looked after it. And it just turns out that whether or stagno, Mt, Mt. Han was there in Malaysia, and he took part in distributing it. So they
sent us pictures saying Luke who's, you know, sending out your, you know, giving out the bags of rice and food and stuff, and Hamdulillah, you know, to those refugees that are there. So there's many people in different parts of the world that are in need, but try and maximize and help as many as we can. And you don't have to only give, you know, the $8 or the $10. Here, it's 10. So we'll stick with 10, you don't only have to give $10 per person, you can give more if you want, you can give more, right, but that's the minimum. So it's calculated based on a meal here. So one meal, the average meal, let's say you go to a restaurant, the average meal that you're going to pay at a you
know, an average restaurant is about $10 per person to eat a meal in the restaurant. So that's how it's you know, calculated the average plate of food is roughly around $10. So $10 per person in the family, the mother and the father will look after paying that amount for all their children in the family. Unless the children are mature, then the children can pay for it on their own behalf and even pay for the parents as well. Right? So that's a that's completely a choice up to the family members as long as it's paid once per person in the family. If someone has a newborn baby That's born, you know, on the morning of either fifth or then they don't have to pay for for that. But if
it's born like in the night, then they should pay for that child as well. Which is not really likely to happen. It's you know, a rare case. So that's what's regards to is that Catherine fit or southern cotton fitter? What happens if someone does not pay that before? Or you'd Saw that? Do they still have to pay it? No, they don't. It's completely you lost out. You lost out on it, you could still give it but it's not considered zakat. Anza capital federal or South Dakota and federal, it's considered sadaqa it is not considered the fifth that I that you're giving. Okay, so you lost out on that reward and that reward is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so it's important for us to pay for
that before the prayer and make sure that it's distributed before each prayer. So not that you walk through the door on any day and you give the money like hamdulillah I did my part know that money actually has to be transformed from money into food and it has to be delivered to the person before you pray or eat so that if not you lost out on the reward. Okay, you still get the reward of giving sadaqa but it's a completely different reward in the ranks that are given by Allah subhanho wa Taala at
the read Sala so read. Why do we have read after the month of Ramadan? Yes.
Yes, so it is compulsory to pay for it, but you have to pay for it before that 8%
If you if you miss out then you lost out.
That's where the scholars differ if you miss out on preying on paying for it or I'm distributing on giving your your footprint, then the scholars say you lost out on that. It is possible some scholars say that because it is compulsory to pay that the person would be sent for that last panel attorney knows best. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us really, it's not that difficult if a person is not capable of paying for it, or has a debt or something of that sort and don't say oh, you know, we're all buying houses so we have debt No, if you're buying a house you're capable of giving $10 away to someone who doesn't have food. Right? So we ask Allah subhana wa tada
to make it easy for us all to pay for this fifth thought because it's really not something that's that difficult.
Suddenly, we mentioned that read so what is this strategy? Yes.
Okay, so that's that's why I said we should be giving the money if we're going to give the money to the mustard and the mustard is buying the food, then that's fine or they're going to give it to let's say you know, it can have relief in many other countries, they will have the food and distribute the food based on the money that's given right? If you're giving someone money then ideally you shouldn't be doing that you should be buying the food and give them the food. Okay, you should be buying the food and giving them the food instead. Okay, so don't just give the money to the poor people or the people that need to give them the food the actual food so go to the grocery
store, buy rice buy some chicken you know buy what's what we normally would eat over here and give that to them. Okay?
Now don't just don't just give money give money extra give give some food and give give the money as well. All right, read solid, why does the last panel metallic give us solid tiller eat, we noticed that the Sahaba of the long run home they would become very you know saddened that the month of Ramadan is going away. Just like we all feel right now we feel sad that the month of Ramadan is is is leaving us. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala put the day of read right after the month of Ramadan, so that we can be distracted a little bit from the sadness, look at the Hikmah the wisdom of a loss of Hamlet. And we're a little bit distracted from the sadness that we feel because we lost this
beautiful guest that we entertained for an entire month, the month of Ramadan, right? we entertain this guest of Oman and now it left us or it's leaving us very shortly. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala put a day of celebration so we can feel happy, and we won't feel as sad and we won't feel so down and depressed. Right? But so kinda we look at our state and our condition compared to that of this habit of the alarm. Right, they would be sad for months on end after the month of Ramadan. We're sad for a few minutes and then we're like eat Yes, and you go home and you notice everything's being cooked in the ironing of the clothing and people are going shopping and we like almost forget
about eat within an hour or so we forget about them and within an hour. And that's the importance of the tip. Right as Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, shows us in the some of the prophets of Allah, I think he was sending them. And then the Quran encourages us to do the tech theater tech villatte as we'll discuss shortly, so don't move on, you know, ends and then the last panel with Allah puts this time of happiness and joy. And you know, at the fifth or he also calls it you know, that the day where we have our feast, and we can eat and enjoy ourselves. And so our celebration of need, or our holiday, as we call it, you know, in North America, we call it a holiday of loss, which Allah made
our holidays different than the holidays of the other religions. You know, and their holidays, they go and they dance and they sing and they drink and they get drunk and they do a bunch of nonsense, right? I'm from Quebec in Quebec, we have St. JOHN Baptist day, right? So the day of the 23rd of June is known as you know, Quebec day. I don't know how it's known as Quebec day, but alas, kind of without a nose vest, right. So we noticed that a lot of people go and they get drunk and they celebrate and they party and even on Canada Day we see you know, it's more a family thing on Canada Day, but still people go out and they enjoy themselves and they celebrate in ways that are
displeasing to our boss palitana whereas read what is the first thing we do in the morning of eat, right after salata. fudger pray remember Allah subhana wa Tada. Right. We are called to the remembrance of Allah subhana wa to Highland and throughout the night, the night before
the the slot artillery. So now Tonight, tonight is a day where Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards us for our actions during the month of Ramadan. Right. And it's encouraged as the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose us to continue reciting the technium of La La La
Lama, Allah, Akbar, Allahu Akbar wanting you to continue doing this. Continue doing it over and over or even just saying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar over and over and over, that's good to have us pan with Allah loves that you praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah at the end of this month, and then tomorrow, you get to enjoy the day, right? So our celebration is a day that we connect to Allah subhanho wa Taala connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't just lose the Ramadan and that's it. Oh philostrate everything comes off and you know, we go back to you know, enjoying ourselves and forgetting our salah and forgetting you know, you know,
just eating whatever we want and not eating healthy, not rationing, the amount that we eat and paying attention to our health we just go all out. Right so we also have to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala recite some more and tomorrow as well. Right try and recite some tomorrow don't just leave for the month of Quran is gone. That's it. If we are people that can open the Quran during the month of Ramadan and open it on the day varied then inshallah inshallah we will open the door and for the rest of the days until the next Ramadan comes. But if we find it difficult for us to open it during Ramadan, then it's going to be difficult for us to open it after Ramadan. And so on the day where it
will find that it's very hard for us to open the Quran is very hard for us to remember last month and it's very hard for us to press and it's very hard to, you know, pray any Naruto sauna. Right and that's encouraged for us to do during this night during the night of edenshaw Montana.
So on the night of variants before that, like we mentioned tech, and the tech via will begin from salata, Mohammed today, so from salata, Madrid because we've declared that a duel will be tomorrow based on the calculations and that's also something that we've noticed that the moon has been seen in previous countries, countries to the east of us, right where the sun is setting towards the west. So some of the countries from the east have already declared that they saw the moon I should say, not the sun, they saw the moon
and hammer there's so much discussion that's been going on throughout the entire day. I've been monitoring you know, different countries, different places, different scholars saying different things. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best but a humbler decision has been made over here. That tomorrow will be we'll be solid tiller. edenshaw Montana so the tech beer begins from Missouri today. And for eagle feather the tech beer goes until we start our solid tillery tomorrow. That's it. Right That's it. For eagle eyed hat goes on for three days before eagle feather it goes from tonight to McRib until solid tillery tomorrow. So continue to do that technical because once we come
into the mustard and we're doing the tequila and I walk into lead solder in sha Allah, Allah Subhana Allah gives us the ability to do so and we begin to solder that's it the tequila ends and of course then it's encouraged to just say a lot about regularly and constantly continue to praise and do tasveer in praising Allah subhanho wa Taala
pray extra Noah field during the night as we mentioned, asked for our actions to be accepted our good deeds, our you know and any sort of sacrifice that we've done throughout the month of Ramadan, ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to forgive us and to accept those actions during tonight. Because tonight is the night from you know, the evening part now as we're getting into until the night Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, accepts all of our good deeds that we've done throughout the month of Ramadan and rewards us for that. On the morning of varied What should we do on the morning of read, so it's a son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to wake up early on the morning of eight,
right? Get up early pray salata, fudger we should all be easy or capable, it should be very easy for us to get up for Salatu fudger tomorrow because we've been you know, doing it so well during the month of Ramadan. Right and we'll get a lot of sleep tonight and charlo Todd, hopefully, unless people are too busy preparing for eat right, all the key that takes 10 hours to cook and Mashallah the samosa is and you know, all that. So wake up early, that's the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to get up early and to be ready early for selective read as well. And he would encourage this a habit of the allowing him to come early to the machine and to be here waiting for
the email. Not that we're sitting there and you know that mmm comes in and starts the salt out and then people are still rushing through. No, it's the sun that is that this little the alarm would come early for the saga, and they would wait for the prophets of Allah and a US senator. Now
before coming to the Salah, we'll talk about the the prayer itself, but let's talk about the morning and things that we should do. clean your teeth, brush your teeth, right using the miswak is a Sunnah obviously brushing your teeth is is what's you know, the Sunnah is to clean the mouth, cleanse the mouth. So if you're going to use toothbrush and toothpaste, go ahead do that. As long as you come in, you're clean right to take a bath as well.
Or, or a shower is is also from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to cleanse ourselves right? To also put on perfume and put on your best clothing. Put on your best clothing or your nice, you know, a nice set of clothing, whatever it is, right? It could be you know, we live in Canada, some people are going to wear their suits. I remember a few years ago, I met this one youth in Montreal who I used to teach somehow the law he came on the day but he didn't he was wearing a suit like decked out right with, you know, like a tuxedo suit. And I was like, Mashallah, you look really good today, right? He's like, you know what, this is my graduation suit from high school. And
I never had a reason to wear it after that. And I figured you know what, this is the most most amount of money I've ever spent on clothing was on this. So I figured this should be the clothing I wear for eight I was like, that's good. Fine. That's nothing wrong with that. Did you want to wear a lot of commies you want to wear a bow Do you want to dress like a Saudi Qatari Malaysian, you want to dress like a Canadian go ahead dress nicely and enjoy yourself it's the day of eat for the sisters it's it's recommended also that they wear nice clothing as well but not on the outside. So where if you're going to wear you know, flashy attractive clothing, put an alibi over your clothing
right put some put a nicer buy over so the sisters get double the amount of clothing right? So the Father has to buy, you know, Mashallah the nice eight clothing as well as a nice andaya that the wear on top of it, something that looks good in sha Allah to Allah but it's not too flashy and too attractive to the eye.
wear perfume as well for the brothers that's recommended for the sisters. You know, as long as we take a bath and clean ourselves technically both as brothers and sisters, we don't need to wear too much perfume so don't drown yourself in perfume. I know sometimes the sisters Mashallah you go to your car and you can smell like 10 different kinds of you know, women's perfume coming from every single direction, right so try to take it easy in the perfume and shot along to Anna. These brothers are miskeen and weak.
It is also from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to eat something sweet before coming to pray or eat soda. So eat something sweet. In fact, this is something that dates an odd number of dates right the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to eat an odd number of dates on the morning of eat before coming why because it's either fit on a day that we eat so eat something nice enjoy yourself break your fast break your fast from the from the nights where you know we were fasting the night before and the day before the day before the day before and we woke up for
food now after going for budget after budget go home have something sweet to eat have something nice to eat it doesn't have to be sweet but eat something right eat something even if it's small a lollipop or candy or something right.
And again, a reminder continue to recite the technique. Right? Continue to recite it over and over.
Yes, okay, so reciting the techniques should be out loud for the men, right? It should be out loud for the men as in you know, you're reciting it like a regular voice like we're speaking right now. But for the sisters it should be whispered Okay, whisper it, recite it continued to do it, but whisper it so you're not drawing attention to yourself, right? For the brothers, they can draw attention to themselves. If anyone tries to attack them. They will, you know, defend themselves and trauma right.
There needs prayer. So as for their needs prayer, we should. We should technically be praying they need prayer outside away from the mustard. Right? That is the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but we live in a country where it becomes a little bit problematic, right to pray Our eight prayer on the outside, not as in there's, you know, it's harmful for us know it's easy to do that but then there's money that's going to be spent on renting a place you know, maybe even a venue or it's raining right in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or at his time you know, it's sunny, right sunny pretty much all year round. It's the desert but over here you know, our
climate makes it a little bit difficult to imagine praying outside in the middle of the winter, it'd be a little bit challenging right? So I'm gonna we have masajid where we have heating and air conditioning that goes on inside and of course the doors are open I'm pretty sure tomorrow you're going to notice a lot of people praying outside as well. Right so that's okay. The ideal thing is to go somewhere away so a few massages get together maybe rent a you know, a soccer field or just sign up with the you know, our local municipality and and use that soccer field or you know, baseball field, whatever it is. But again, then it becomes problematic in terms of rain, right? So that's why
we use our massagin and it's okay to use the mustard as well. Now, when you come to the mustard for selective aid, like we said, you come early.
Generally speaking, there is no solder after fudger on the day of read until you pray there, eat prayer.
Okay, there's no solid
So there's no nothing, you would not pray any some number for eight you will not pray and you sum that after eight, you will not print any Nuffield prayer before it nor after it. Generally speaking, that's the way you know that's how that is done. And that's because we go to an outside area and outer grounds that is not a Masjid and so there's no need to pray to hate in the masjid. Whereas for us because we're praying in the masjid when we come early, we should pray to hear it and mustard okay, but there's no sun there's no you know four to four to two all these you know different that aka you know, brothers come in all the time asked me for Jumana how many how many indica do we pray
and for vote and this and that. And everyone's confused because they forgot you know, that times table the multiplication chart that they memorize when they were children for the amount of pray that our Chi that we have to pray right? Not the one times one one times two, but the actual prayer like Asana. So there's no sun. There's no enough to be prayed. But because we're in the masjid, come early for Salatin aid. You get into the masjid pray to here to the masjid which is to Dhaka. That's it, right you pray to God. And then you sit down
for those that are going to come during
yet pray it after. So the scholars say if you're going to pray it, so it's rock. Sorry, I'm thinking if you're going to pray Okay, Sherlock, there's no need to technically pray Sherlock. Why? Because the solidary is supposed to take place at the shop. So if you're going to come at the first eight prayer that's at the time of a shock, all the other eight prayers come after. So you will end up praying Sherlock were
at home. And that's what the scholars say if you're going to pray, if not pray it at home, because you're not going to pray it at nine o'clock or you the prayers at nine you're going to pray it much earlier sunrise right after sunrise 10 minutes, you're going to pray it right? So you're going to end up praying it either you stay for a job and you pray it here and then you might go home or whatever, or you know, go for a little walk outside and come back in if you're going to stay for the first aid prayer, okay? So that you know you're you're transitioning, it's assuming that to actually go to the masjid or go to the AIDS prayer grounds from one route and come back using a different
route, as we'll discuss shortly in Charlottetown. So as I mentioned in the budget,
then before each prayer, there's no other end and there is no comma. Okay, there's no end and there is no comma. So as everyone is doing their technique of MMA work
you'll notice that a man is going to come in and then all of a sudden the mother might say a slur or we might say you know salata Larry de como la or something of that sort. I think tomorrow I'm going to go over the the method of praying selected aids very quickly before we actually pray so everyone's up to par and knows exactly how we're going to pray. Allah inshallah Tada. So there's no as an and no iqama
I don't want to go over how we're going to pray now because if you're not coming
for the recording, okay, inshallah.
We'll do it for the recording. But for those that go to a different Masjid familiarize yourself with with how they're going to pray. Why? Because according to different narrations of Hadith are different, which obviously is because different mazahub will will will pray differently. So in a mustard where they're going to follow the Hanafi method, they will pray different than the chef or any method and so on and so forth. Right? How I'm going to pray it here in this Masjid is the way that we prayed in Mecca and Medina. As long as the mustard committee is okay with that, I don't know is is that the method that's usually prayed here? I never prayed out here before, so I don't know.
But generally speaking, we'll pray according to the way that we pray in Mecca and Medina, right. And so we will do techniques will say Allahu Akbar and tie our hands, right?
And then I will say Allahu Akbar another six times. Okay?
You do it three times the hanafy method. Okay, so
three times, but two times. Oh, this see this way the Hanafi method is so confusing for people why? because then it's Raise your hands then do we tie our hands? Or do we put our hands down, right, everyone gets confused. The other method is very easy. We just keep saying along when and tying your hands is very easy. And then you say that a lot of liquid at the very beginning of the first one, okay? And then you do the second beat again, you know, five times at the beginning of the second record, so it becomes very easy. So I think because of the recording, we'll just you know, if you're recording, find out from your local mustard, and we'll go over it tomorrow and shout louder because
I just want to be sure I want to double check with the mustard if it's okay. Because I know a lot of people then will be a little bit confused. But you know, there's there's actually no no difference if you pray one way or the other. Both are all the methods are correct in sha Allah Tana
walks to the masjid or to the prayer grounds for withdrawal
quility right with Nina that you're going to praise Allah tala read, you're going to go not rushing. Remember we said it's it was it's encouraged that the Sahaba would come early for saw that tiller eat, right, they would come early and they would sit and they would engage in the technium. And they would you know, sit and wait for that Imam. So we should come early and not have to rush now I know parking becomes a huge problem. So let's try to come as early as we possibly can. I plan on leaving home at eight o'clock in the morning even though the sun is going to be at nine and it takes me 20 minutes to get here. So I'm hoping you aren't blocking. Vernon Thorpe I know Burnham floor gets
blocked up pretty bad right? So that's why I give us enough time to get in because it's one lane on each side in Charlotte we all have to get into the parking lot. And the first Gemma has at what time seven so there's probably going to be people still hanging around after that. So we want to make sure that everyone is cleared in and out right? So come you know tranquille taking your time come to the mustard drive according to the speed limit and don't you know commit any sins as you're as you're coming for solid delete. It is also a Sunday as we mentioned to use a different route. So if you normally come one way to the masjid try and take a different way. And that's because the angels
are lined up and they're recording and you know, at different places. There's angels that will dustpan wattana puts them in different posts, different standings, right and so Allah subhanho wa Taala has them record to those that are coming and going and as well so more people can see you right more of the people in society will see you that you're coming in. You're going for Marines prayer, there's a high presence of Muslims so it's not everyone going up and down one street and the rest of the city doesn't see the Muslims go and scatter out go and show the people the identity of the Muslims that we're here and we live here and this is what we're doing. It's our day of
Seeing is different routes Okay, so artillery itself is to rock guy. Okay, it is to America. So we pray it's just like we pray Juma but we switch the hotel around so for Jamal we pray to God so we do the footwork and then pray to God for a solid salary we will pray to an account first and then do the hotel but after so for those that will come late you will end up missing the sauna not like Jumeirah people come lately like yeah, it's okay the mom sounds gonna take 20 minutes during the football you know Don't worry, you know so we'll come you know right before the Salah starts No, we pray for that first. Okay, now I know you're all asking or thinking what if we missed this on on
what do we do? Okay, just wait. Okay, so we're going to pray to then have the hook about after it is the majority of the scholars go with the opinion of the hooked about being legit so compulsory for us to sit down and listen to the football. Okay, so listen to the hookah on the day of your attention is highly,
you know, needed and recommended. Also, after the prayers I'll have to I need to greet people go and greets, you know, the brothers greet the brothers and the sisters greet the sisters and we know that there's always going to be a group of you know, young brothers standing near the entrances, Mashallah. And they just hang out there. And then the sisters pass by and they're trying to choose which guy they're going to go and tell their husband, you know, I'm interested in that one, or tell their father I should say, I'm interested in this brother, that brother. So so panela you know, try and make sure that you know, there's proper segregation and a lot of data, we're not mixing in ways
that are disliked by Allah subhanho wa Taala. As for the eighth prayer, if someone misses the sauna, or comes late for one night, aka or misses the tech beat at the beginning, just join the prayer as though it's a regular prayer, you don't have to do anything extra, what you missed from the Imam is fine, because you're only missing the TextView. And those TextView that you're missing are suddenly in the prayer. Okay? And that is to be done by the email. So those that miss out on it, and you miss let's say one block can join in with the second Raka that's fine. And then you know, when the Imam says said Mr. De Gama, who told us and I'm gonna come after you get up and you continue that aka
that you missed, okay, so that's very simple, very straightforward. If someone completely misses their each prayer, now read itself is not compulsory for every single person. Okay? So if there's a group of Muslims that are praying it so the congregation comes in happens and you missed that congregation, no problem, you are not sinned. If you missed the eighth prayer, but because tomorrow is July, then you have to come for July. For those that caught their ain't prayer. You do not have to come for Jamaat. Okay, but the Imam has to come.
That is that's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave the concession to those that prayed solidary with them in the congregation, those that came and attended their eighth prayer, you do not have to go for Juma. Okay. authentic. Okay.
That's only when it falls on July like tomorrow. So tomorrow
There's a ninja on the same day and I know there's a lot of questions
okay, yes, getting to it inshallah. So those that that praise Allah tiller eat, right. They don't have to come for Juma but you still have to pray. But the scholars differ on if the person has to come to the masjid or not to because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the way that he mentioned it he said, then you know, pray with ease, right pray it with ease. So you know, pray to God. Come to the mustard is better for you if you can, if you can go to a Masjid but there is no mustard praying. Tomorrow there will be praying Juma unless there's a mustard that goes with the opinion of not to praying Juma at all which I don't know if any. So if that's the case, and you
don't come for for for Jamal because you might be you know, out of the city somewhere visiting family enjoying food or something, then make sure that you get together wherever you are, and pray and pray together. inshallah, you don't have to pray Juma. You had a question
I just mentioned that. So if you missed the sauna, and then you could sit and listen to the hook, but
there's only one method I believe is a medical model, but I have to double check in Charlottetown that says that you will end up getting up and praying that prayer is well okay. But you just sit and listen to the football and and that's it. Why if there's another congregation that's going to take place here another mustard you want to go go that's fine, right? But it's it's not compulsory for every single person to pray or eat. It just needs to happen. So there's Muslims that come just like the jenessa not everyone has to pray salata, janessa, but if people come and attend the janazah, that's enough for the rest of the muslimeen. Okay.
So for those that that come for either, for saw that salaried, then they don't have to come for joma if you want to you can, there's nothing telling you that you can't. So if you want to still come for Joanne that's fine, that Imam has to come because the Imam has to read for those people that missed read or that didn't go for or that were traveling and came in and you know, didn't make it or something of that sort. And they come to the mustard for Juma there has to be someone to lead them right. So Juma will take place for those that did not make it for the prayer. I know some people work and some types of work they can't take off like when I was in Australia there was a brother who
says I'm a captain of a ship and there's times where I cannot just leave in the middle of the sea right how am I going to come and so so Pamela you know for some people they they won't make it for each prayer but they still have to go for solid to Jumeirah
fasting after the month of Ramadan, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man sama Ramadan and Thelma de Becker, who will be said to Michelle Well, for kenema sama, Derek Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said an authentic hadith in Sahih. Muslim. If person fasts during the entire month of Ramadan, then follows it up with six fasts during the month of show. Well, forget an MS lama denicola it says though this person has fasted the entire year. So look at that reward. Right? We that's authentic? Yes. So hey, Muslim. Yes. So if a person fasts, the entire month of Ramadan, and then follows it up by six days, now, people are saying, Well, I was sick, and I missed
a couple of days, make up those days, and then fast. Those six days for the sisters, right? They might have had their menstrual cycle for a few days, make up those days, and then fast those six days, some scholars allow you to combine, I don't go with this opinion. Unless it's, you know, extreme case where someone missed many days, then it's okay to combine in that sense, but I personally don't like to favor that too. Because people take it a little too easy. They tend to take the easy way out, right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever fasted the month of Ramadan entirely, and we know those that missed any days during the month of Ramadan is probably
because they were traveling or they were sick. So it's not that they didn't miss out on fasting, those days, they were given, you know, it's an exception. They don't have to fast for those days, they have to make them up. So when they make them up, then they would have fasted the entire month of Ramadan. And then they fasted six days of show. Well, you have to make up those days first. Okay, you have to make up those days first. Don't say, Oh, you know what? I missed two days. I'll do them in December because the days are much shorter, but I'll fast the six days of chawan No, no, you have to make up those days first. Okay.
So that's with regards to after eight. If he falls on a Friday, do we pray drama, we just covered that. Is it permissible to give gifts on the day varied? Yes, it's permissible to give gifts you can give gifts and I encourage that we give gifts to our children so that they don't look at the
Other religions and the other holidays and say hey how come on Christmas and all these other holidays Halloween you know the the non Muslim children they get you know gifts and candies and chocolate and all that how come for us on our eat, it's like, I know boring, we don't get anything no make it make it feel extra fun for them do something on the weekend next weekend do something again with them. So you know it's read we're going to do this, you know, we can do it on the weekdays because you know, the mother or father might work but on the weekends, go take them out, enjoy, you know, some time with the family. Also, after the holiday Laurie to go and visit family
members, you know, maintaining those family relations, as we mentioned before Ramadan, we're talking about all the Hadees that we learned through the book, right. So go and visit relatives talk to them, mend any sort of you know, relationship that was cut off, try and try and you know, bring back that that love in the family again, shot a long time ago, but again, avoid mixing with those that are not to bottom for you. So we noticed handle it happens a lot on the day of AIDS, many people will spend the entire month of Ramadan and they're done. Like, you know, you don't have to be extra, you know, devote to a last panel to add on a super worshiper. And then after the day of
Ramadan ends on the day of age, we notice everyone's mixing and handshaking and hugging. And you know, Mashallah and not even remember Subhana Allah just sitting and chilling with people that are not in a home for them. So try and you know, if your family and you're going to sit down and have a, you know, a dinner or something I know, in Canada, we, you know, make a little bit of exceptions. So Canada, you know, people don't understand when you go to a restaurant and everyone can sit on a table and eat in a restaurant, why can't we sit at the same table and eat in Canada? Well, you know, if you're going to do that, at least, you know, don't be like me sitting directly in front of
someone who's not my home for me, you know, this will be like my brother sitting here and maybe his wife sitting there, right? So you're not sitting directly, you know, in front of someone that you might touch your feet under the table or you know, might be a little too much interaction going on, try and try and minimize any sort of interaction. In that sense. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy for us. These are times where we are really tested.
graveyard, is it permissible to go to the cemetery on the day of eat, it is actually discouraged to go and visit the graveyard on the day of eat. So the day there is a day of celebration. And the people have the graveyard, right as the as the scholars say they don't have an aid. They have no Ramadan, they have no, they have no zeca that they have to pay. It's done with. Right their life is is over in that sense. So it's not read for them. We don't have to go and visit them. It's actually discouraged because going and visiting them makes us feel sad. Right? So it's it's discouraging scholars discouraged us from going and visiting the graveyard on the day of read, and the son of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not to go to the cemetery on the day, but it was to go any other time. And it was actually to go at night.
Spooky, isn't it? Right? Right, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to go and visit the graves at night, not during the day he used to go at night. But again, there's nothing wrong with going during the day. But that was the time that the Prophet sallallahu ascended preferred to them. Of course, he was in Arabia, it was very hot during the day to go in, especially when you go into the cemetery. Is there something that to take your shoes off into go and barefoot? Imagine going barefoot in the middle of the desert? You know, at noontime it's hot, right? So
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go in the evenings and it's not a sin not to go and visit the grave on the on the day of eat.
Lastly, try to upkeep the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of read since Ramadan is only, you know, a few hours it had ended and now it's the day that he does, we mentioned tried to upkeep some of those values of Ramadan throughout the day varied by you know, praying extra, some none no outfit, you know, engage in test be and recitation of the Quran as well. And lastly, before I forget, and this is what we'll finish with, in sha Allah, Allah is to remember to be good examples to the rest of society. I've noticed already in many different countries, either Muslims have reacted or people who claim to be Muslims have done things like there was a bombing that happened in
reality, just a few hours ago, there was some something else I think in the US that happened, you know, someone who was a Kuwaiti American who had, you know, done some sort of shooting or something of that sort. There's no violence that happens. And we're at a time where people will look at the Muslims and have a lot of hatred inside of them because of what they see on TV. And so be safe. Be careful with your families, enjoy the day of eat, but be cautious as well, especially if you're going to public areas, like Niagara Falls and stuff like that if you're in public areas, and you might be dressed, you know, where people noticeably see that, okay, these are Muslims, right,
because everyone's dressed nicely on the day that we eat. So people might have some sense
Have hatred inside of them. Be conscious, be cautious, be vigilant, right look out for one another and chug along. And enjoy the day ever eat right Enjoy your day have eat. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept all of our efforts throughout this entire month of Ramadan. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us in these last few moments of Ramadan and grant us you know, success in all of our actions and everything that we've done throughout this entire month. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept what we've spent time on in terms of learning the Quran and to allow us to be from amongst those that implement the knowledge of the Quran that we've learned throughout this
entire month. I mean, ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to give health to all of those family members and relatives and friends of ours that we know of, and that we don't know of that may be suffering some sort of illness We ask Allah subhana wa tada to relieve them of their sufferings. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to cure all those that are sick. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to reach another month of Ramadan. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us from amongst those that have acquired and attain taqwa throughout this entire month of Ramadan. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that continue to learn this Deen and to implement what we've
learned throughout this month for the rest of the year and for the rest of our lives. I mean, well, some of us send them all about Academy and I'm hammered in order to sell them somehow not because of velocity.
