common mistakes that Muslims make during the month of Ramadan and their fasting.

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

of the common mistakes that are made during the month of Ramadan is for somebody to fast with their stomach, but to ignore their eyes, their ears and their tongues. There's a difference between siyam which is an obligation from Allah subhana wa to Allah and song which is an active process. CCM is passive quotevalet consume, it's something that's been ordered upon you, you don't have a choice. Allah said no food, no drink and no intimate contact with your spouse from when the sun rises to one the sunset. But Allah Subhana Allah then gives you other opportunities to make some to do on an active process that increases the productivity of your passive cm. This is where the prophets I

00:00:53--> 00:01:34

seldom says that the one who is not going to leave off false hood of their speech, words of vulgarity, words of mistrust words of sinful statements, then Allah has no need for them to leave off their food and their drink, what reward is there for them, they will not be held accountable for not having fasted, but they will not be given the reward of having fasted, see, there's a difference between being held accountable for missing your sleep, and actually gaining the reward of your sleep. And of the common mistakes that Muslims make at times is that they will fast with their body or their stomach, but they ignore the other excesses in their life and maintain a lifestyle that

00:01:34--> 00:02:20

continually takes away and tarnishes the good deeds from their life. I was asked a question by a young Muslim and he said to me shelf, you know, I miss sometimes my prayer, why should I fast if I missed by prayer, I say no you fast because fasting is an independent de to your Salah, your Salah, doesn't break your fasting if it hasn't been maintained, but it does take away of the reward of your fasting. You don't want to make two mistakes. So fasting is independent, but you need to add to it the good things that give you a greater and more holistic reward. So the prophets I said them warned us about our tongue and our our ears and our eyes kulula iica can and hummus Allah, Allah says in

00:02:20--> 00:03:04

Surah Surah your your hearing your sight and all of the intentions even of your heart that are evil towards others and malice field, all of it you will be held accountable for We ask Allah Subhana Allah to allow us to fast with more than just our stomach, that we go beyond being in a state of siyam to being of those who are active with our slome thinking of ways that we can increase our fasting, there are three levels to fasting, the fasting of the hour, the general public, no food, no drink, no intimacy. Then there's the fasting of the Huw OS, those who have a special connection with Allah, where they restrict their limbs, their eyes, their ears, their their tongue from saying

00:03:04--> 00:03:44

things and doing things with their body that aren't right. Then there is the fasting of the elite, which is the fasting of the heart, that you begin measuring even the impulses and the desires of your heart and try to restrain them from that which is forbidden. Allahumma Ameen. May Allah help us overcome our own selves and evilness that we may bring into our world by misunderstanding the importance of restricting more than just our food and drink intake Allahumma amin subscribe to this channel, share this video and click on the bell icon so that you can be notified with every new video at faith IQ is like a low high dose and I want to go
