The layer of blood Amina salatu salam, ala Keisha from Winston Salem Hamid while the ad he was soggy as you may. So tonight insha Allah who will be talking about Ramadan, talking about the excellence of this month, and also some fecal matters that are related to our fasting in this month with me later. And I would like to start by discussing or talking about the aid of fasting that are mentioned in Surah Al Baqarah. It will be a brief discussion because I know many people are familiar with this ayat, but it is a reminder for the believers we need to remind ourselves all the time about the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran. And then we talk a little bit about the

00:00:50 --> 00:01:04

excellence of fasting in the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salam, and then we ended up with Philip Habibi, later on to talking about matters that are related to this webinar. So Allah subhanaw taala mentioned fasting in around six, eight, maybe

00:01:06 --> 00:01:49

from 183 to 187. And all of them about fasting and the rulings of fasting except one of them which is 186. It's about dua nothing is mentioned there about fasting, but it is definitely it is you know, this matter of dua is connected to you know, the excellence of making dua in the in the month of Ramadan. So Allah subhanaw taala briefly said, yeah, you will Edina Avenue and this is a title of honor. Because when we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala What do you believe in him and that's kind of Tyler will treat you as a believer, Allah subhanaw taala will take care of you, Allah subhanaw taala will love you. So here he's calling us with the title of email yet you

00:01:49 --> 00:02:29

will Edina Ave or you will have believed fasting was decreed upon you as it was decreed upon those before you. So we know that it is not know Allah subhanaw taala trying to make it easy on us or the believers. You're not the only one who were asked or commanded to perform fasting, it was something that was it was an act of rebellion that was prescribed upon the the nations that came before you. So you're not the only one. And when you feel like everyone is doing the same thing you feel more comfortable. When you know that everyone is doing the same thing or everyone was doing the same thing. If you're more comfortable and motivated to do things.

00:02:30 --> 00:03:13

This is beautiful here because you know what Allah subhanaw taala is our Lord and our Creator and our master he could have said, you know fasting is an obligation upon you, you need to do it and that's it. Right there. He's trying to you know, invite us in a very nice in a lovely way. So it was it was prescribed upon those before you don't worry it's it was prescribed upon every nation, all the believers throughout time throughout history. And then Allah subhanaw taala is staying telling us at the end of this Allah Allah canta taco, so that you may become righteous, that you may attain taqwa, which is righteousness. So it's Allah subhanaw taala telling us here about you know the

00:03:13 --> 00:03:54

purpose or the ultimate purpose of this rabada Allah subhanaw taala does not want more to make things difficult upon you. He wants you to reach the status of Taqwa the status of the people of Taqwa. Moutoku. And your taqwa is God awareness to be aware of Allah Subhana Allah all the time to fear Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah Subhana Allah wants you to increase, you know this Taqwa this fear of loss pantalla in your heart, and when you do that, so you will be in sha Allah, it will be easy for you to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong. You follow what is right and you stay away from what is wrong. And then because you know, Hamdulillah this here, this ultimate

00:03:54 --> 00:04:16

goal is very clear here. But still we have Muslims who asked, you know, I was asked about the purpose for the hikma the wisdom behind fasting and didn't don't answer. The answer is very clear what Allah subhanaw taala wants us to work on our spiritual well being enhance our spirituality, you know, get connected with your Creator through fasting.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:49

And then in the next day, he said a Yemen map do that, again, triangular centrality make it easy on us. It's only for a few days fasting. It's only for a limited number of days. I'm not going to fast for six months. You're not going fast for the whole year. It's only 30 days 20 Nice. Tomorrow we're gonna start to after tomorrow maybe maybe Monday after tomorrow, maybe Monday or Tuesday. We started Ramadan and then it loser I open the other one and then Overland is gone very quickly.

00:04:50 --> 00:05:00

So the movement actually the meaning the true believers feel sad when Ramadan is is gone. When they come to the massage, don't they?

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

I've read

00:05:03 --> 00:05:20

during the days of Shaohua Msh to become empty after Ramadan is over. So the believers, the meno feel very sad they feel very sad. And they become very happy during the time of Ramadan because the houses of Allah subhanaw taala are full of people reciting the Quran

00:05:21 --> 00:06:01

you know, fastly breaking the fast together, people coming to the Salah with the five daily prayers, so Masha Allah and he the massages are like beehives. There are people who are active during the ribeye that you know, the reason the shayateen are chained, and they're not making wash washer anymore, so people feel more motivated to come to the houses of Allah subhanaw taala. So and then Allah subhanaw taala said, women can Amin Kumari than our other suffering for entertainment I am in Wuhan. If you are sick or traveling, then you have the right you have the concession to break your fast. Of course, your child your chip has to be more than no the distance of more than 80 kilometers

00:06:01 --> 00:06:11

at least, you can use and then you are allowed in sha Allah to break your fast or if you are sick, you know, sickness, it has to be significance.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:53

Headache, or a tooth ache will are something that doesn't affect you. It shouldn't be a reason for a Muslim to break his fast. But if he's sick, he's ill and fasting will delay his recovery or it will increase his his sickness all uh you know, it will make him face, you know, hardship, he will it will be you will be dealing with extreme hardship. When fasting then insha Allah you will have the concession of breaking he has the concession of breaking the fast. And then Allah Subhana. Allah gave the Roxa to those who are

00:06:54 --> 00:07:33

the Routemaster bus, he said, What are the Livigno to Kuno Videotron Tom Ruskin and those who can fast but with extreme hardship, he said the old people, old people this who are, you know, very old and they can cannot fast and if they are fast, they will fast with extreme hardship. Allah Subhana Allah has given them the rasa to feed a needy, a poor person for each day, and that would be inshAllah 1.5 kg of rice, or any staple food in any specific area in any particular area. But we'll talk about it in sha Allah when we talk about the matters related to this rebirth.

00:07:35 --> 00:07:51

Then at the end of this, I must assume Ohio law come in conjunct palemoon That if you fast is better, it is best for you that you fast if you only knew. So this is a message for those who look for excuses. And by the way, you know,

00:07:52 --> 00:08:37

Allah subhanaw taala said, you know, we have two problems here and in this community, and I think in many communities, especially in the West, where people have to fast for 18 hours, we have people who actually intend to break their fast from day one. And they they're excuses that they work in construction or they do some difficult jobs. Or there are people who are looking for photographers, and this is something that is in it's been going on in the last two, three years. The here's the photo from the Middle East, there are people in the West, those who have to fast 1718 hours, they have the right to break their fast at six o'clock or seven o'clock or based on maca timings. So this

00:08:37 --> 00:08:40

is one this fatwah has no basis.

00:08:41 --> 00:09:26

You know, the definition of fasting is clear. We'll talk about it. It's from dawn till sunset. And Allah, Allah Allah, Allah who loves me loves her we fasted in 2014 for 17 hours or 18 hours, a 2015 last year, and we will fast this year in sha Allah with the permission of Allah for 18 hours, and the sky will not fall and nothing would happen. People will be fine. And of course, there are some solutions for those who, you know, have some difficult jobs will we'll talk about it later on if I forget to remind me Shala with your questions, but but there is no a Muslim, if he's not traveling, if he's not sick, then he doesn't have the concession of breaking the fast.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:59

It has to be a valid reason. Then Allah subhanaw taala talked about the relationship between the Quran and the month of fasting in one 185 And he told us that the Quran actually was revealed in the month of Ramadan as a guidance as a source of guidance for people and being at in middle who they're all for Khan. So and whoever witnesses the moon, the new moon then he has to break this start fasting this month. Then at the end of this

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

Surya, Allah subhanaw taala said, you read Allah who become will use you to allow you to become a loser that Allah subhanaw taala intends for you is and he doesn't intend for your difficulty. He doesn't want to make things difficult for you. That's why we say we have the golden rule or principle that you can live Allahu nevsun ilaha Allah does not commend us to do something to do what is beyond our ability? Allah, Allah subhanaw taala does not place a burden upon the soul beyond its ability. No Allah subhanaw taala does not do that. If he knows that we will not we are not able to fast, you know, 18 hours or 17 or 17 hours, then Allah subhanaw taala does, you know would have

00:10:44 --> 00:11:27

given us the Russa but we don't have a Roxa we don't have the structure this concession is Sharia to break the fastest because it's it's long. It's a long day, or No it's not 18 hours. This is not and there are many people one email called me today one, one Imam called me today before salaam Juma. He said, I got three calls. Three calls from people asking are we allowed to break our fast at seven o'clock based on this federal market timing. And he said they were surprised to meet some people last night. This is another email telling me he called me he said you need to talk to people about it. I said yes, I'm planning to talk to people about it in Juma and in this helicopter.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:56

He said I met some people last night. And he told him that last year actually, yes, this is what we did. They used to break their fast around seven o'clock, based on the schedule. And I got a brother here last year when I talk about this subject after the humor. He came to me and he said, Oh my family are doing this. All my family members are following this photo. Yahoo and I always mentioned this example in 2013. I was back home.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:40

And people there. They used to break their fast around eight o'clock. The difference is only around two hours. between eight and 10. We break your fast at 10 o'clock here. We break these to break there at eight o'clock. So the first 450 15 hours with us for 17 hours we'll let there is no big difference. But the weather was very hot. And people were fasting. I didn't hear any about anyone looking for Russia. And a Muslim. I'm talking about Muslims, good Muslims who were planning to fast and it's their habit to fast there are people who break their fast all the time. There are Muslims who don't pray, and they don't fight all the time. I'm not talking about these people. I'm talking

00:12:40 --> 00:13:25

about those who have the desire to fast but because they heard about this fatwah. They thought that this is a concession. This is a rock star for Muslims who live in the West. Yeah, when we have our councils here in North America and Europe. We have highly qualified scholars who live with us in North America and Europe. So we don't need the federal from someone who lives in the Middle East. He doesn't know our condition. He didn't come here in June and stayed with us in June here and and witnessed you know the month of Ramadan in June. If he came here if they come here and fast with us they will find it very easy to hamdulillah I'm talking about my experience in 2013 It was very hot

00:13:25 --> 00:13:38

there. People were fasting when he came back here in the last 10 days. And I found that the weather was very nice, masha Allah in June, June July, I don't remember I think it was in July.

00:13:39 --> 00:14:06

The weather was very nice year and I said Masha Allah, Allah Subhana Allah is helping these people here. Allah is helping you Yes, you have to have us for 18 hours. But this is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala especially in the in the afternoon. The weather was very nice. And it was easy. I know I found it more and easier to fast here than fasting back home, even though they're they were breaking their fast around eight o'clock as as I told you before.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:09


00:14:10 --> 00:14:34

Allah subhanaw taala made it clear that he doesn't want to place any difficulty upon His servants and he intends is for us. So his purpose is to help the believers to purify their hearts, purify their souls, and inshallah enhance their you know the spirituality and increase their Taqwa. And then in a 186 Allah subhanaw taala talks about dua

00:14:35 --> 00:14:44

about our relationship with Him has nothing to do with fasting but this is a message a message to all the believers pay attention to do it in Ramadan.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

Pay attention to do it in Ramadan

00:14:49 --> 00:14:59

mode most likely you will do I will be accepted. When you pray Chara, we had the time of Iftar only come to the massage then they made the Art Institute. You will do

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

Ah hopefully will be accepted because Allah Subhana Allah forgive your sins, because if you're fasting, you're fasting person and Allah subhanaw taala loves this evader, because Allah says Selim was asked by uma uma Sahadi Greta hubback interest Allah. Yar rasool Allah, more knee vishay Indian Ferroni la hobbies are told me about something by which all by the means of which Allah subhanho wa Taala may bring benefits may greatly benefit migrants we benefit so he said there was masala Malaika be so I know hula Lello This is a great statement. I like his song he said you should fast for there is nothing nothing equal to it. This was transformers and Sheridan. How do you say hey, are they

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

comfy sofa in the hula Adla who

00:15:50 --> 00:16:10

there is nothing equal to it. And the narrator of this Hadith from Abu Romana. I think his name is Raj yet know how you he said after this story. People any felt that Abu Romana and his family and his wife and people have members of his household were fasting for the whole year.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:41

These people were amazing year one and that's why we love the Sahaba and we respect them. We respect them. They were great people when they receive and say hi from Rasul Allah says the act upon it right away. If you don't leave it, that is the mercyhealth Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Azza wa sallam. Imagine fasting in Medina. In the Summary, the weather it gets up to temperature gets up to 50 degrees, sometimes 55 degrees. So people observe fasting there for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:42 --> 00:17:07

So here, Allah subhanaw taala saying what they say like everybody only for in the theory, and this is a beautiful introduction to the subject. And when my servant asked you over hammered about me, concerning it concern me concerning me, I am near for any hurry, and he didn't tell him. Cool. He didn't tell him I say to them, tell them that I am near.

00:17:09 --> 00:17:16

It wasn't the ECMO, what is the ECMO? The ruler Malizia Allah subhanaw taala doesn't want anyone to inter mediate between him and his servants.

00:17:18 --> 00:17:57

Even if he's the prophets of Allah, Muhammad SAW Allah Allah. So Allah azza wa jal is telling to you, I am close to you. There are some people when we talk about your app and the excellence of dua, and the stories the beautiful Stories of the Prophets and messengers who may die in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala answer the DUA. These say that you are exaggerating what I was told this, from friends and family members, you are exaggerating, you keep talking about drought all the time. Sometimes, you know, I know people facing problems, no one can help them except Allah subhanaw taala. But still, they keep looking for solutions, contacting family member, family counselors,

00:17:57 --> 00:18:40

contacting Imams trying to talk to the leaders of the community, but they don't pay attention that they should go back to Allah subhanaw taala raise their hands and maybe cry to him during my time in reverse Ouzoud and increase their dua because I know by looking at studying and you know, looking into their problems, sometimes you find it very difficult can do nothing about it. Especially when it comes to children or dealing with children will even if you talk to him as an imam. I mean, if he doesn't listen or she doesn't listen, what are you going to do about it? So but Allah, Allah has the power to soften his heart and soften her heart and bring him back or bring her back to the dean and

00:18:40 --> 00:18:46

to his family or her family. He has the power to that. He has the ability to do that.

00:18:47 --> 00:19:25

Yeah, even your shirt Subhanahu wa Taala So when Allah subhanaw taala is saying here we they say okay by the end for me, Perry Masha Allah, this is beautiful, as I said, introduction Huji. Without a doubt either the and I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon me. So this is a promise from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. We just have to place the trust, build the trust in our hearts, that he's able to do it, to answer our dua to fix our problems, to improve our conditions, to change our life, to change your conditions, he has the power to do that.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:30

And we just have to place the trust in Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:36

And some other people would say, I just in one brother told me this yesterday.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:59

I am facing great difficulties, brother pray for me. And I told him I you know, I had this discussion with many brothers and Subhanallah the they give you the same answer. They tell you I'm not clean from inside. I want you to pray for me. I told them this is wrong. This is your opportunity. You're going through some difficulties.

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

Whether financial or you're all you're facing some problems in the family, any other problem, this is your opportunity to increase your DUA to reconnect with your Creator. Through to come back to the massages, increase your eBUY that give increase your sadaqat. And then Allah subhanaw taala is willing to, to help you, Allah subhanaw taala is willing to answer you know, if you don't open your mouth, you don't use your hand. I mean, he's not going to you want me to do it for you?

00:20:29 --> 00:20:52

It's, you need to do it as a person because you need to build that relationship. I mean, it's okay for a for a Muslim, it's good for a Muslim to pray for his brother, especially when he's not present when he's not in front of him. Because Allah says Allah said, I said out there it is. Yeah button. There were two Muslim, a Muslim visa hurdle. Hi.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:28

Hello, welcome, welcome. Yaku look, I've been missing the irony. He said the fastest, you know, supplication in acceptance is the dua for Muslim for his, for his brother, or his sister in Islam, when they are not present when they are not in front of him, because if they are in front of you, they tell you, Brother make dua for me, raise your hand and make that. I mean, he's in front of you try to make the best to hire because he wants to please him, right? make him happy, or make him happy, right? But when they are not there, and we don't know about it, we don't know that you are making dua for them.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:51

Then this is a sign this is an indication of your sincerity, that you really care about your brother and sister and baby because you want that derived from the angel because Allah subhanaw taala said, or Salah salem said that Allah will send an Angel making dua and he will say, well a cabin Mittal and to you the same.

00:21:52 --> 00:21:59

So now I have a tip. Now, if you are going through some difficulties, or you have you want to achieve something,

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

you can try it and see and tell me about Ramadan. You can try to choose a brother or sister that you know he's facing the same problem. And he wants to achieve or wants to achieve the same goal.

00:22:15 --> 00:22:20

Keep him in mind could be one brother, two brothers, Three brothers or one brother, one sister,

00:22:21 --> 00:22:31

keep him or keep her in mind and make dua for them during the month of Ramadan. Without telling them that you're making dua for them. Don't tell them

00:22:32 --> 00:22:33

and it will work.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:39

And I don't need to tell you believe me because this is the messenger of Allah saying this.

00:22:41 --> 00:22:46

But Astra are aware at that means the best of all supplications

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

the fastest, supplication in acceptance is the dua is the supplication of the Muslim to his or her to his Muslim brother or his or his sister in Islam.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:07

Okay, you make dua for them without them knowing that you are making to ask for them.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:12

And it will be better if you have some problems with them.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

If you have some grudges,

00:23:17 --> 00:23:53

some issues with their family members or friends that you have some problems with that and you say you know you suppress your your feelings. You crush your feelings for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you ignore the ill feelings, the grudges that you have in your heart you ignore them, try to ignore them and purify your hearts, you reject them and you make dua for them. Ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless them bless their families and their wealth. Then you will see inshallah vanilla, the fruits of this dua in your life. Try to Ramadan

00:23:55 --> 00:24:16

this is one of the tips. There are many tips when it comes to adding Ramadan and what you have to know what you want. If you're looking for risk. You know my answer, if you're looking for risk to things that you're off motion, certain persons, I 24 have been minimized multi layer in training is still far too things.

00:24:18 --> 00:24:37

Know if you keep doing this to us to have Musa Salem is the Far be in the line, you will see the results. And I have many brothers who can witness to that in this place. The sole hamdulillah the fruits of this applications than this. He got married, got jobs.

00:24:38 --> 00:24:42

And then some of them are here with us maybe I don't want to mention names.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:59

So we have beautiful stories. But we don't need these stories. Because we have a promise from Allah subhanaw taala and a promise from his messages wa salam and we have the beautiful stories of their prophets and messengers.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:16

And then I told you about the story of for Yoni Sally seller. After Allah subhanaw taala told us about his to Allah Allah Allah subhana Kinnikuman of valuing. Allah said work at Le Kanoon Jean meanie and thus we relieve the believers who help the believers.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:43

With relief the hardship of the believers he only he relieved he was able through the DUA to relieve the hardship of Eunice La Silla and same thing will happen to any movement. He doesn't have to be a prophet, he doesn't have to be a messenger. Remove this false, this misconception from your mind that these great people in the Quran, prophets in messages Allah only answered there to ask because they were prophets and messengers, this is wrong.

00:25:45 --> 00:25:47

They are our code word.

00:25:49 --> 00:26:11

Our examples to follow. If we don't follow them in these things, then what do you want us to? I mean, what are the dear beautiful stories in the Quran are revolving around these beautiful stories when they faced hardship and faced tyrants and rejection from the people in the last panel Italia and they went through hardship and difficulties. And Allah subhanaw taala answers their dua.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:28

Then in the night, the last day a 187, Allah subhanaw taala told us that it is permissible for us to you know, for having relationship with woman during nighttime, it is Helen.

00:26:30 --> 00:26:42

And then he told us about something beautiful about Fudger time. He said work Hulu, wash caribou TV, another common title of your domain, okay, tell us what you mean. And he said, Keep eating and drinking

00:26:43 --> 00:26:50

until you are able to distinguish between the black thread in the West and the white thread in the East.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:10

He didn't mention the East and the West. But we know that you know Fajr appears in the east side. So until we are we are sure that Fajr is here, then we are supposed to stop eating and drinking. So which means that this insect time he call it inside here

00:27:12 --> 00:27:40

10 minutes or 15 minutes you have to stop you have to stop. I'm not talking about you trying to be in the safe side. This is your choice. I'm talking about people making it an obligation to stop eating or drinking 10 minutes or 15 minutes and they put it in the calendar. And they say this is in shack and this is Fajr This is something new. It did not exist at the time of the Sahaba of the Allah Ana, something new.

00:27:41 --> 00:27:48

That means you don't have to stop at the time. You can continue are allowed to continue eating and drinking till fajr time.

00:27:50 --> 00:28:08

You get this point? Yeah, one. But here we have a little issue in Calgary Hamdulillah. We are happy with the local timing. The only problem is we have got scholars from North America who are saying the best timing for North America or North American people is not timing.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:22

There are many scholars are seeing this. The problem is you know how many the differences between Israel timing, the one that is found in your smartphones. When you open when you check the Calgary timings is 24 minutes.

00:28:24 --> 00:28:52

So when it comes to pray, Fajr we are in the safe side, our timing is beautiful. We are always behind them. So when it comes to praying Fajr hamdulillah there is no problem. When it comes to Ramadan. I'm saying if you want it is your choice. I'm not saying it's an obligation. It is your choice. If you want to be in the safe side and this is your choice. Then you can pray a stop eating

00:28:53 --> 00:28:55

based on isn't a timing.

00:28:56 --> 00:29:33

North America it's called North America or Islam if you want 24 minutes before our local timing, but if you want to follow our local timing, that's fine based on this idea in Surah Al Baqarah because we're not sure and myself I went outside many times I didn't see the Fajr base, you know appearing at the time of based on ISNA timing, I just want a couple of weeks ago, and I drove through Stoney trail and try to check all that area I didn't see it was black, dark everywhere with his furniture. And it was isn't the timing.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:42

Entertaining here, but I don't know it's one day that two or three weeks ago, four weeks ago, I'm not sure.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:50

But I still am planning to go maybe some days during Ramadan but I'm very happy with our local timing when it comes to fuzzer.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:59

So now as I said I'm saying if you want to be in the safe side because there are good qualified scholars. I respect them.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:11

And I appreciate your efforts and they're in and they're taqwa, they're saying the best timing when you go to the internet ignore the other timings that are found in Islamic finder.

00:30:12 --> 00:30:22

They said they are based on false dawn we have two types we have the false dawn and true Dawn and federal sad and unfortunate will carry

00:30:23 --> 00:30:59

so these are these calculations are wrong that are found in Islamic finder five calculations except one. They said this ruler is now should be so one hour and when they compare it is not timing with the other timings they said is that timing is the best that we as local community, we are fine. We're happy with our timing because we are always praying after the time because the problem is praying after the time is in is okay is permissible. The problem is it's haram to pray before time.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:37

So if it's not timing is not good for Calgary, and we follow it. We might be praying before time. You see the problem here. But when it comes for to fasting, we'll stop eating taking years to hold. If you want to follow if you want to follow isn't a timing. It's up to you. But if you want to follow local timing is still fine. It's still good will love to Allah Allah because Allah subhanaw taala said, well, Kulu Chabot had HIV and until you are able to distinguish between the black thread and the white thread, well Allahu Allah, Allah Allah. So

00:31:38 --> 00:32:21

let's talk a little bit about the excellence of fasting in the Sunnah of Rasulullah assassin, there are some amazing, some beautiful Hadith from the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salam. And I will start with one that is called is mixed between regular Hadith and Bucha Hadith and we talked about it before, but I'd like to talk about it again. It's a beautiful statement they were having, you know, they had a lot of discussion about the meaning of this hadith, coming up with different explanations didn't know why Allah Subhana Allah said, made the statement of course through His Messenger it is a Hadith Bootsy is not Quran. So in this hadith, Allah subhanaw taala said, in a hadith Kochi Rasulillah

00:32:21 --> 00:33:00

Salam, narrating what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala revealed to him, but lacking Rasulillah Salam whenever he talks about whenever he talks about a hadith Bootsy he would say Paul, Allah azza wa jal it doesn't mean that this is Quran is not Quran, a to Cuzzi Hadith. That means the meaning is revealed to rasool Allah is SLM the warden coming from Rasul Allah says Allah Kulu Amelie Adam Allahu Allah, so for in the holy war and Zb, a famous Hadith found in Bukhari and Muslim I'm sure that you have heard this hadith before many times. every deed of the son of Adam is for him.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:22

Except fasting, it is for me. So Allah subhanaw taala, saying, fasting is for me, and I shall reward for it. I shall reward the servant My servant for it. Now the olam actually found it very difficult to understand this statement. Why? The reason why Allah to Allah alum, this is all deeds are supposed to be done for the sake of Allah.

00:33:25 --> 00:33:30

You know, when we pray? Do we pray for someone else to someone else? Or do we pray to someone else?

00:33:31 --> 00:33:54

We pray to Allah subhanho wa taala. When we give sadaqa do we give sadaqa for the sake of someone else, we give it for the sake of Allah. When we make hash, we make hash for the sake of Allah hoping in his reward to go to Jana will make her Umrah. We do it for the sake of Allah. So all the evaded all acts of worship are supposed to be directed

00:33:55 --> 00:34:07

to Allah subhanho wa Taala we do them for the sake of Allah to earn his reward and his pleasure. Why Allah Why did Allah say here in this Bucha Hadith, fasting is for me.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:31

Why this distinction between fasting in the other deeds now the ruler came up with many explanations. They said what made fasting so special to the extent that Allah subhanaw taala attributed it to himself. Why the sheriff, this is an honor that is granted to this act of worship passing year one.

00:34:33 --> 00:34:52

I want you to appreciate you and you are about to start something very honorable in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. You are about to start doing something that has the you know that has high value in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the last pet loves and appreciates.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:59

And you should be making dua all the time or Allah Allah Molina Ramadan, wala na

00:35:00 --> 00:35:01

You will need to reach Ramadan.

00:35:02 --> 00:35:24

Oh Allah enable me This is that should be the behavior of the believers, those who love Ramadan, the more for the sins to be forgiven. We love to improve their relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala don't look for this weird fat ours are we allowed to break our fast at 630 or 737 o'clock? No, they enjoy this fast thing

00:35:25 --> 00:35:26

they become very happy.

00:35:27 --> 00:35:40

So now here are the rules, you know came up as I said with many explanation. First thing is for me Allah subhanaw taala is saying for me, but there are four popular, you know, opinions.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:49

For popular, I will mention them. They said the first reason it could be the natural, but he said and the soma lead who will react.

00:35:50 --> 00:35:56

So this at first there is no Ria and fasting, and you know what is real, showing off.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:09

There is no showing off and fasting. We said fasting is a unique event. It's a special act of worship. No one is able to know if you are fasting or not unless you speak about it.

00:36:12 --> 00:36:28

You can leave your house in the morning going to work fasting without telling your wife and telling your children you come back in the evening especially in wintertime, Margaret at 430 or five and you come back and have dinner with your family without them knowing that you were fasting for the whole day.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:45

Unless you speak about it right. If you don't speak about it, no one knows about it. The other reason is when fasting during Ramadan if you are a true believer, you try to observe fasting for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala with sincerity with loss

00:36:47 --> 00:36:57

but still you have the opportunity to break the fast right you can go and close a go behind doors and re heal fast no one knows about it.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:50

Right and show your family that you're fasting with your fast with them at the time of Gruber you're a fasting person but you could you have the opportunity to go and close you know be behind doors and eat or drink but you don't do that you abstain from far from drinking and eating and and marital relationship for the sake of Allah. So the essence of this first thing is a vida is flawless sincerity. So this is the first explanation. They said that could be the reason Allah subhanaw taala said fasting is for me. The second reason this is Anil armella Khushi naka de rue Therby Hammond Ashura. Elesa bury me at his birth in LA cm for in Allahu Allah, he laid it he said. They said that

00:37:50 --> 00:37:55

Allah subhanaw taala told us or the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

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

that every deed every deed or the rewards of every deed are multiplied from 10 times to 700.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:20

So let's pray to Allah is very generous, Masha. Allah is willing to multiply your rewards from 10 to seven and they said This rule applies to every act of EVA, every act of every act of worship except fasting.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:42

Because in Sahih Muslim, this hadith came in Sahih Muslim with this introduction Kulu ama Livni Adam Aoba if Minashi has actually lsap Me as the birth in Lussier so Rasulullah Salim said endless em so he said Rasul Allah says Allah made this exception

00:38:43 --> 00:39:06

in the soul, and this exception the word came from Allah subhanaw taala. Sola, sola Selim is narrating telling us what Allah said in the Psalm For in the holy war nicb. So Allah subhanaw taala himself is telling us about this exception, you're getting, getting this message from the King of Kings medical model subhanho wa taala.

00:39:07 --> 00:39:19

So, it's definitely the reward of fasting is definitely more than 700 and we know that fasting, the essence what is the essence of fasting, what is the foundation of fasting is patience,

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

you have to do exercise some patience.

00:39:24 --> 00:39:35

So you refrain from food and drink and marital relationship with your wife, you need to be patient, control your desires.

00:39:36 --> 00:39:52

Right. So it is the essence of this fasting is patients and Allah subhanaw taala said, What did he say about patient or patient people or people of patients? What did he say about that? In ma wasabi Runa Asherah have the right.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:59

He said he said the patient will be rewarded will be given there you

00:40:00 --> 00:40:02

Walton gave judgment without account

00:40:04 --> 00:40:17

without any accounts. So that's why we don't know the rewards of fasting. Allah subhanaw taala has kept it as a surprise for you and for me. And for every believer who fasts, who observes fasting.

00:40:18 --> 00:40:56

The last title has kept it a secret. You will find it on the Day of Judgment. You will know about it on the Day of Judgment when you meet your Lord. That's why Rasulullah Salam said we saw in the forehead for her tune in there for three or four Hatton in Delica Arabic, he said, you know, the, the fasting person has two times of joy. One time is when he breaks his fast, and he's happy because Allah subhanaw taala enabled him to perform this beautiful act of Ayurveda. He enabled you for 18 hours, mashallah you were able to make it, she'd be proud of yourself,

00:40:57 --> 00:41:11

and you're happy. And the second reason is because you food, you are in front of food. So I will be Hamdulillah this is the name of Allah subhanaw taala become happy, because Allah Subhana Allah blessed you with food with his name.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:34

So this is the second reason they said because the last pantalla only Allah they said only Allah Who knows the reward the fasting, that could be the reason they're trying to understand the statement. Fasting is for me. And the third reason they said in the CML, let me you're about to be his lawyer Allah, this is another popular

00:41:36 --> 00:41:38

explanation, let me let me write Allah.

00:41:39 --> 00:41:42

Allah He left his solidarity was was sada Kathy

00:41:44 --> 00:41:56

dua Arabia. So they said, fasting was was not used to worship others besides Allah in the History Throughout the history of humanity.

00:41:58 --> 00:42:01

Nothing is recorded about any group of people

00:42:03 --> 00:42:05

worshiping their idols

00:42:07 --> 00:42:11

through by the means of fasting or through fasting.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:25

Nothing is recorded in the history of humans. We don't have we don't know about any group of people who used to worship their idols, or anything besides Allah subhanaw taala through the rebirth of fasting.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:32

So it is only Allah subhanaw taala who was worshipped with with fasting

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

so this is one of the explanations will allow to Allah and

00:42:40 --> 00:43:05

the fourth one he says, energy me I'll eat better that to steal Furman Helma volume in Lucia. So this first thing cannot be used to settle accounts on the day of judgment. And this is the opinion of Sofia of an arena Rahim Allah. He said fasting cannot be used to settle accounts on the Day of Judgment. What does it mean? That means when people wrong each other,

00:43:06 --> 00:43:29

we take the property of someone, when you bite someone else, when you talk badly about someone else, when you hurt someone else, Allah subhanho wa Taala will, will give him from your has entered on the Day of Judgment, if he doesn't forgive you. If this person does not forgive you, then accounts will be settled on the Day of Judgment, nothing will be ignored.

00:43:30 --> 00:43:33

Nothing will be ignored on the Day of Judgment.

00:43:34 --> 00:43:54

I saw Allah who wanna Sue. So Allah subhanaw taala has recorded it, but they forgot about it. They will find it in front of them in their books, on the Day of Judgment. So every single deed, every single problem, even if it is a worthy one, that's why we have to pay attention to what when talking about other people,

00:43:56 --> 00:44:27

every single word you say about someone and he's not pleased with it. And it is classified as valuable as backbiting. Then this person has the right to take from your house Senate, but he will able be able to take from the Senate of your solid, the good deeds of your charity, the good deeds, your hash of your Amara of anything, any active Can you can think about any act of worship except fasting.

00:44:29 --> 00:44:31

He cannot touch your fasting.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:33

You fasting is protected.

00:44:35 --> 00:44:41

You cannot touch it. That's it. Because the last part Allah said fasting is for me

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

Illa solfa in the holy

00:44:45 --> 00:44:49

so your best friend one of your best friend on the Day of Judgment will be your fasting.

00:44:51 --> 00:45:00

That's where it will last I said Lim said in the CMO of Quran Isha it will abdomen pm he said Quran the Quran

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

and fasting will intercede on behalf of the fasting person on the Day of Judgment, Quran and fasting. So fasting will say we don't know if Allah subhanaw taala will create fasting in the in the shape of human being and he will be talking or this is a figurative speech Allah Allah, Allah Allah. But Rasulullah Salam said fasting will say oh Allah I prevented him from food and drink from his desires. For sure. FedUni feet allow me to intercede on his behalf. And the Quran will say Oh Allah, I prevented him from sleep during the night time during Ramadan, for sure for any fee, allow me to proceed to intercede on his behalf.

00:45:43 --> 00:45:51

So fasting will be one of your best friends on the Day of Judgment. As I said, this is the opinion of Sophia and if not Reina

00:45:53 --> 00:46:04

Rahmatullah Ali. There could be Allahu Allah, Allah Subhana. Allah might have said this statement fasting is for me, because of all these reasons together.

00:46:06 --> 00:46:12

Because fasting has no real yet. But he said, What do we say? The first one, fasting has no react.

00:46:14 --> 00:46:27

Okay, there is no showing off in fasting, you're able, it's a unique rabada you should be able to hide your fasting, and no one should be able to know about it unless you speak about it. And the second one,

00:46:28 --> 00:46:30

what is the second reason you're one?

00:46:32 --> 00:46:44

Yes, so only Allah is only Allah Who knows the reward of fasting, the rewards of fasting, all these are the rewards of all these are multiplied from 10 to 700 Except fasting.

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

Or the third one.

00:46:50 --> 00:47:14

No one was worshipped and no idol no nothing that was worshipped besides Allah subhanaw taala was worshipped through very bad or fasting or we have nothing that is recorded in the history for human human beings or humanity. We have no nothing recorded about a group of people who use fasting to get closer to their idols or to worship their idols. And the last one is

00:47:18 --> 00:47:34

is protected. It cannot be used to settle accounts on the Day of Judgment. It could be for all these reasons only fasting is a special act of a vida. Because of so now try if you hear about someone who is planning to not too fast in Ramadan, and there are many people who do it.

00:47:36 --> 00:48:17

The the pay, they're healthy, they're not traveling, but decided to long in a period of time. 18 hours we cannot go for 18 hours without to drink is difficult. So the pay they decide to pay. Give them your nausea, convey the message that you will be missing. Something here is something excellent, extremely excellent in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala something wonderful that Allah subhanaw taala has prescribed upon His servants for their sake. For the sake of our own benefit. We get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala to we increase our Taqwa we get our sins forgiven.

00:48:19 --> 00:48:29

It could be fast it could be over one it's one of the doors Berberian you know the gate of Orion is one of the doors and these gates of Orion is exclusively

00:48:31 --> 00:48:53

available for the first thing people so fasten could be your don't your door to Jana, because no one will be able to touch it even if you wronged other people, they will take from the other hustlers but they will not be able to touch your fasting be the light Allah and this is the opinion of Sophia and if Marina Rahmatullah Allah and I believe and this is a good opinion, wala hota Allah.

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

So now, let's talk a little bit about some myself.

00:49:02 --> 00:49:50

I will start I would like to start with the intention, because the intention is broken, making the intention for fasting is broken, is broken, yeah. And it has two pillars. First thing it has only two pillars, you know solid has six or seven pillars, has has four pillars. But first thing it has only two pillars, what are the two pillars, the first one is near the intention. And the second one is the physical abstinence is to refrain from food and drink and marital relation ship during Ramadan during the time of fasting from the break of dawn till sunset till sunset not till six o'clock or seven o'clock we have to wait until by the time we have one. Now the when it comes to the

00:49:50 --> 00:50:00

NIA, it is sufficient It is okay if you make the one single Nia one single intention for the whole month for the whole

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


00:50:01 --> 00:50:26

in on Sunday if we're fasting on Monday and it has to be doing nighttime, nighttime, it is enough to make one single Nia for the whole month. Are you supposed to say it? Are we are you supposed to make any verbal statement now were you to be sold me Verdin I think there is some statements are available on these calendars

00:50:27 --> 00:50:48

in Arabic and although you find the statement you know this is not Sunnah the Sunnah of Rasulullah Selim you don't make any statement. You don't pronounce your intention before you pray you don't pronounce your intention before you fast. We are only supposed to pronounce our Nia when making has your camera that's it

00:50:49 --> 00:50:51

has your camera

00:50:53 --> 00:51:11

but for the other Eva that your silent plan or planning your silent intention is enough. Is the fact that you know that tomorrow you will be fasting in sha Allah and you make this plan before Fajr time then this is enough

00:51:12 --> 00:51:20

and near to Mahalo. Hello Hello called the place of Nia is your heart. Allah subhanaw taala want the purity of your heart.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:25

He wants the Rebbe of your heart.

00:51:26 --> 00:51:40

So we there is no need to pronounce to say anything. This is not just Allah says it was not his habitat is salatu salam it was not his sunnah. To You know, it was not his practice Ali salatu salam to pronounce a know his Nia.

00:51:42 --> 00:51:49

Now, if someone decides to travel, and he breaks his fast during Ramadan,

00:51:50 --> 00:51:54

the NIA is broken, the New Year for the whole month is broken.

00:51:56 --> 00:52:03

Then after he comes back to Calgary, he has this renew his intention again for the rest of the month.

00:52:04 --> 00:52:05

Or if he gets sick,

00:52:06 --> 00:52:09

and he decides to break his fast for a couple of days.

00:52:10 --> 00:52:20

When he gets well and he wants to start fasting again. Then he has to renew his intention again. Is that clear? One?

00:52:22 --> 00:52:36

Five, there are some other students who say no, you have to make intention for every night. But they I mean, this is the I don't see a big difference between the two opinions. The moment you're thinking about the whole

00:52:37 --> 00:52:41

that you wake up Inshallah, before fashion makes a whole why do we take the whole

00:52:42 --> 00:52:43

Why do you take the whole

00:52:44 --> 00:52:52

for what purpose? Why do you wake up at 3:30am in the purpose of fasting so this is enough below to Allah.

00:52:53 --> 00:53:05

When it comes to starting fasting year one we have two things we started fasting the month of Ramadan, after we observe and we see the new moon the new crescent moon

00:53:06 --> 00:53:13

or by waiting to complete the month of Shaban 30 days. So, this is how Muslims start their fast

00:53:15 --> 00:53:43

either they see the moon or if they are not able to see it this cloudy or they will not able to see then they are allowed to complete the month of Shaban it will be 30 days and the next day automatically it will be the first day of Ramadan. So through these two ways, and we are allowed of course to observe the New Moon by using by the use of by using binoculars or telescopes. We are allowed to do that.

00:53:46 --> 00:53:54

If someone starts his fasting in his country, in his with his local community, and then he travels to the state or to another country.

00:53:56 --> 00:54:01

He has to first with the loot with the other community there continue his fasting there.

00:54:02 --> 00:54:27

Unless it is hard for him it is difficult, but he has to follow their calculation or their decision. This is what I mean here that even if he ends up fasting 31 days, let's say he decided to stay there to celebrate Eid. And he ended up fasting 31 days. It's okay. He has to celebrate Eid with that community.

00:54:28 --> 00:54:30

If he comes back to Calgary,

00:54:31 --> 00:55:00

he has to do the same thing he has to follow the CRM the fasting of the local community. What if he ends up fasting only 28 days? It's okay It's fine. He has to celebrate Eid with the Muslim community but he has to make up for one day. So the total will be always the minimum will be always 29 days. But if he has 31 days that's okay because

00:55:00 --> 00:55:11

As he has to follow the first thing of that particular community in which he is, you know, staying with Allah, Allah Allah is that clear one

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


00:55:20 --> 00:55:27

doesn't matter if you go to another town, you moved to Edmonton and the follow the another opinion,

00:55:28 --> 00:55:31

you have to follow the local community there you don't follow the,

00:55:33 --> 00:55:43

the local community of Calgary. If they celebrate each one day before Calgary, then you need to celebrate eat with them. You don't fasten that day if you are in Edmonton.

00:55:45 --> 00:55:51

So it doesn't matter if you go to me to travel to another city, another country or another province, it doesn't make difference.

00:55:53 --> 00:56:21

So the old me I said those who are unable to fast but the they have hope they're hoping to be able in sha Allah to fast in the future, then they have to make up for the missing the miss days before the next Ramadan, it is an obligation It is haram for them to delay the making up of those days, till the till after the next Ramadan.

00:56:22 --> 00:56:39

They have to try their best unless they have an excuse, like someone who was a lady who was pregnant during this Ramadan. And then she she broke her fast in Ramadan. When the you know she was breastfeeding her child throughout the whole year.

00:56:40 --> 00:56:50

And she was not able to make up for those days, the days of the previous Ramadan, then this this woman had a valid excuse she will not be sinful.

00:56:51 --> 00:57:23

She can insha Allah and make up for those days after the second Ramadan. But one of us is not allowed to delay if he had a valid excuse he was sick who was traveling a woman who was pregnant or she had her monthly paid then they have a legitimate reason for breaking the fast if they did, they broke their fast they need to make up for those days before the next coming of the next Ramadan and it is an obligation and if they didn't have a valid excuse

00:57:24 --> 00:57:31

for not doing it before the next Ramadan it will be a sin as Allah subhanaw taala and your father na minha Zulu be kuliah.

00:57:33 --> 00:57:42

So, those who had a valid excuse, they are supposed to feed one person, one poor person, someone who is in need for each day.

00:57:44 --> 00:58:21

And then the popular there is one popular fatwa that says the minimum is 1.5 kg of any staple foods could be rice could be barley, it could be grain, wheat, sorry, it could be dates could be any any staple food, food that is used commonly used in that specific particular area in that particular community. 1.5 kg for each day, or they said it is better to give this person one meal, lunch or dinner.

00:58:22 --> 00:58:28

But there are some Luna, who said actually, this is the popular fat were the most popular for too

00:58:29 --> 00:58:31

many rules. I'm actually

00:58:32 --> 00:58:48

you know, holding this view. But there are some rules Emma he said this actually, it seems that the stronger or the strongest opinion is to actually give the person what's a faiz him for the whole day.

00:58:49 --> 00:58:54

So you get you pay for his lunch, and for his breakfast and for his dinner.

00:58:55 --> 00:59:03

It if he if it is his habit to have three meals if he needs three meals. So you pay for his food for the whole day.

00:59:05 --> 00:59:13

No, and they are a minority of scholars who allow to Ireland if you follow the other opinion it should be fine without Alan.

00:59:14 --> 00:59:37

And the payment of this video. Or this. You know this video could be could be in the beginning of Ramadan could be in the middle from Iran and you can do it you can delay it after Ramadan. And as we know Malik Radi Allahu Anhu used to invite when he got older, he became very old, he was not able LSVT Malik one Sahabi greater having

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

who passed away in the city of Basra at the age of 80 and 9495. Some rudimentary said you might have reached 101 Who didn't want a one or one two. He when He got became very old when he became very old, he was not able to fast. So he used to break his fastball the whole month. And at the end of Ramadan he would invite

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

30 people and prepare some dinner for them feed, you know, 30 Poor people in his house. And that could be and that was enough for him, but the Alon, so you can do it this way if you want, or you pay for every day, or you pay it you don't have to look for 30 Poor people, you can pay like this video for a small group of people, five people, six people, that should be fine. Wala Jota Allah Allah.

01:00:31 --> 01:00:31


01:00:35 --> 01:00:51

they said also, if someone was not able to fast for or was not fasting, not, I shouldn't say was not able, they were not fasting for legitimate reason, like someone who was anonim, who was a non Muslim, and he became Muslim during the day of Ramadan.

01:00:52 --> 01:01:04

And we don't do it these days, we try to be nice and give this new Muslims time to know about Islam and to learn about it. But Islamically technically, they're supposed to start fasting during the day from Allah.

01:01:06 --> 01:01:44

And the and we tell them about prayer that you need to start praying right away, but we are hamdulillah there are some ways to make it easy for them. They have made it easy for them, it's impossible for someone with a new Muslim who doesn't speak Arabic to start reciting Fatiha reciting the Quran from day one. So there are some other forms of tisby Khandekar to Hamid and Teddy that they do in their salad. You don't have to recite it further as you don't have to recite Quran, he didn't have to make the shout he just learned these expressions, words of vicar, and that will be enough for them until they memorize it Fatiha. And they know the other four Arabs at the time of

01:01:44 --> 01:02:21

Rasulillah Salam, those who came and accepted Islam they were Arabs. So it was easy for them to learn Fatiha right away on the spot and memorize some Quran. And they had childhood memories. But nowadays, most of the Muslims are not, or non Arabs actually, and they don't speak Arabic. So you got to get a new Muslim who doesn't speak the language. It's difficult for him to memorize all these sources from day one. But they wrote him about fasting, we said about fasting, he's supposed to start fasting from day one. So he made if he accepted Islam at 12 o'clock, he so after 12 is not supposed to eat

01:02:24 --> 01:02:25

he was still married.

01:02:27 --> 01:02:33

I mean, if you deal with a new Muslim, then you tell him this, this information in a nice way

01:02:35 --> 01:02:38

unless you feel that he will run away or change his mind and

01:02:39 --> 01:02:39

maybe you should

01:02:41 --> 01:02:53

keep quiet about it will allow tolerance but this is what is in the books of Oh someone who was insane. And he became became sane during the day of Ramadan. Then he asked to

01:02:54 --> 01:02:59

you know, quit refrain from eating from foods and drink for the rest of the day.

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

And there are people who

01:03:03 --> 01:03:06

have this problem with the call it periodical I think

01:03:07 --> 01:03:46

insanity or people who are not insane for the whole 24 hours. They have some mental problems to deal with some mental problems getting few hours and then they become okay and they're fine. And then after a few hours, the they go into this state of insanity. And then after another few hours, they become normal. They talk to you like normal people. There are people who have suffering who suffer from this kind of illness. It's mental problems. So the earlier they said when they become normal people they have to pray you have to fast

01:03:47 --> 01:04:02

and then if you do become insane again, Allah subhanaw taala will not take them to account because you don't know what they are doing. Allah subhanaw taala is before Rahim he will not ask them to you know to make up for these days we'll learn because they were they were sick and they will not mocha live.

01:04:05 --> 01:04:07

But they said about people who

01:04:08 --> 01:04:17

the break their fast. There are Muslims for example. And the break there fast in the beginning of the day, someone who is traveling and he broke his fast

01:04:18 --> 01:04:25

in the beginning of the day and then he came back he reach he reached his local community at the end of the day before Marguerite

01:04:26 --> 01:04:42

is he supposed to quit eating or he can continue. You can eat he is allowed to eat and drink. He's allowed to eat and drink because he broke his vast based on a valid reason which is traveling or he was sick.

01:04:43 --> 01:04:51

And he goes well during the day and he became he got recovery. Then he he they are allowed to keep eating and drinking

01:04:52 --> 01:04:59

those people who had illegitimate trees and they had a valid reason for breaking the fast in the beginning of the day. So

01:05:00 --> 01:05:02

Do you see the difference between the two types of people?

01:05:03 --> 01:05:03

Now I'm

01:05:05 --> 01:05:11

saying, for for people who are traveling or, or they are sick,

01:05:12 --> 01:05:40

is fasting. If fasting is not difficult for them, then it is better for them to fast. It is better for them. We always get this question every Ramadan, I'm traveling, Sheikh I'm traveling, I'm traveling for two days, or three days, what is what is better for me to keep fasting? Or break my fast? And the answer is, if it is not difficult for you to fast, like you go to the stage to another company, and you will be doing office work

01:05:41 --> 01:06:23

in front staying for the whole day in front of your computer. And it's not very difficult, right? I know you're traveling, but you are in your office in front of your computer is not difficult. Then here the old ama decided it is better for you to fast. Why? Because of the excellence of the timing, the excellence of the month of Ramadan. And because you become more motivated to fast and do this ribeye that when you see other people in your community in that local community fasting and you pray with them taraweeh and you become more motivated to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala so the virtues of the time the virtues of this month you don't miss them. But you are allowed because you're you're

01:06:23 --> 01:06:27

traveling you are allowed you have the permission to break your fast Yes.

01:06:28 --> 01:06:29

Yes go ahead

01:06:48 --> 01:06:53

Technically, he has to break his fast at the time of all he has to wait for the type of horror of

01:06:55 --> 01:06:56

I know it might become very

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

20 hours here so what is the best option for him?

01:07:06 --> 01:07:08

With what is the best option for him?

01:07:13 --> 01:07:29

Fasting for 24 hours and brother karma sha Allah you want to do with all we saw is continuing to continue fasting for 24 hours. Well, no, of course the end the person is traveling. So he has a rock star. He has a concession to break the fast.

01:07:30 --> 01:07:37

He has the right to break the fast. He doesn't have to go through this difficulty fasting for 20 hours to 24.

01:07:41 --> 01:07:57

No, no, no, no. If he decides to fast then he has to bear the consequences. He has to wait. Phil McGriff time in Winnipeg in Saskatchewan, Vancouver. He has to wait for Maghrib time

01:07:59 --> 01:08:01

but he has the right to break the fast

01:08:13 --> 01:08:27

Yeah, this is good question you had you had a good reason to break your fast a legitimate reason you were sick or you're traveling and you broke your fast. Do you have to fast make up those days for those days and pay for the video at the same time?

01:08:28 --> 01:08:30

Yes or No? No.

01:08:32 --> 01:08:36

You're only you're only required to fast and that's it.

01:08:38 --> 01:08:41

Who pays the one who has a permanent sickness

01:08:43 --> 01:08:54

permanent he has no hope that he will recover in the future. Or an old person. And I have a grandmother who is like 97 I think years old she's not fasting

01:08:56 --> 01:09:11

97 You don't expect someone who is 96 or 97 or 98 to to fast do to get better and to be able to fast in the future. So she pays or he pays for the effort for for missing the fast

01:09:13 --> 01:09:18

of course kept a bay on your behalf here is no problem with that.

01:09:31 --> 01:09:54

The this is a good question. Yeah, the brother is saying the travel trip will start at 10 o'clock in the morning or 12 o'clock or one o'clock. Are you allowed to have your your Tim Hortons coffee in the morning? At eight o'clock? What is the answer? No. So you have to keep fasting. Yeah, so the answer is what they said.

01:09:56 --> 01:09:59

You keep fasting till you get into the plane and the plane

01:10:00 --> 01:10:02

He leaves the city limits.

01:10:04 --> 01:10:11

And then you can use, you have the right to eat. So only five minutes from the Calgary airport to the city limits

01:10:12 --> 01:10:16

and then you have the right to break your fast right.

01:10:17 --> 01:10:43

And this applies to every every type every kind of travel, whether you are walking, whether you are driving, whether you are riding your horse, or you come to have to wait until you cross the city limits the borders of your town, when you cross them, you can benefit you start benefiting from this concessions. And of course, it has to be a long trip at least 80 kilometers

01:11:00 --> 01:11:01

this is what they said.

01:11:02 --> 01:11:17

This is what they said. I said the best option for these people is to break their fast Why do you go through his difficulty and fast for 20 hours of 24 hours. But he was asking about the person who prefers to fast

01:11:18 --> 01:11:22

he prefers to fast then he has to wait till Maghrib time

01:11:26 --> 01:11:37

I'm not bothered by your questions, you can raise your hand it's okay to have this discussion can raise your hand at any time and ask question further. And I will go through these matters at the same time. Go ahead

01:11:46 --> 01:11:47

for them

01:11:51 --> 01:11:51


01:11:56 --> 01:12:07

no, you don't need any adjustment. The one that we have that we are distributing it has the local correct time of Calgary, this now isn't the time it's not time is in your smartphone.

01:12:08 --> 01:12:10

If you want to follow it, it's up to you.

01:12:11 --> 01:12:17

If you want to follow this timing, it's another good option based on what Allah Subhana Allah says in surah baqarah

01:12:18 --> 01:12:19


01:12:20 --> 01:12:22

further Asia Malaysia

01:12:31 --> 01:12:32

professional athletes,

01:12:34 --> 01:12:36

players, soccer players will,

01:12:39 --> 01:12:48

to the best of my knowledge to the best of my knowledge. If they are traveling, then this is good. They can break their fast because they are traveling but if they are local,

01:12:50 --> 01:13:10

they don't have the right to break their fast is not a good reason they are traveling then it's a different story. You don't break their fast because of that, you know, because they are playing they will be playing soccer, or hockey or any other game. They break their fast because they are traveling. But if they are local, they're not allowed to break their fast

01:13:15 --> 01:13:20

this is what I'm saying. This is what I'm saying if they are local, they are not allowed. It's like any other profession.

01:13:22 --> 01:13:27

Any other profession local people don't have the right to break their fast unless they are sick.

01:13:29 --> 01:13:31

If they are traveling, then it's a different story. You got the answer.

01:13:33 --> 01:13:33


01:13:35 --> 01:13:38

Another answer another question. Let's maybe move to other people

01:13:41 --> 01:13:41


01:14:00 --> 01:14:09

reserved in Muslim countries, when we eat a horse, sometimes we hear the event when your mouth is full.

01:14:11 --> 01:14:20

You have food in your mouth. Do you swallow it? You eat it? Or you throw it or you reject it? Spit it up?

01:14:21 --> 01:14:32

The answer is there are two options if you know but the most of them is making then on time. Then you have to throw it.

01:14:33 --> 01:14:42

You have to throw it if you know that he's making an event before time, five minutes before or 10 minutes before you have you are allowed to eat it. Continue eating

01:14:44 --> 01:14:45

and then you stop

01:14:50 --> 01:14:58

people to pay the party person or group of people to get around 10 people to convince one person

01:14:59 --> 01:15:00

it is

01:15:00 --> 01:15:05

is not preferred by the scholars. But it's okay. Technically is permissible,

01:15:06 --> 01:15:18

technically is permissible to give the same video to the same person for the whole month or every day 30 times. But it is not something that is preferred by the scholars. Yes.

01:15:19 --> 01:15:19


01:15:22 --> 01:15:23


01:15:25 --> 01:15:27

what is the distance?

01:15:29 --> 01:15:35

Traveled? Visit different countries. And he's gonna be there for a month

01:15:40 --> 01:15:41


01:15:42 --> 01:15:44

Yeah. And what is the criteria of,

01:15:46 --> 01:16:37

you know, for traveling people, when it comes to when it comes to the duration, duration of their state? Yeah, the period of their state. Most of the majority of scholars, they said if it is more than four days, if you're planning to stay more than four days, then you should not break your fast. And you should continue, you should complete your salad. This is the opinion of majority of scholars, including the former that the former they have, you know, the former head, Maliki, Abu Hanifa, Hanafi, humbly and chaffing. So they said majority, if you are traveling for more than four days, then you should not benefit from these concessions. Less than four days you benefit from these

01:16:37 --> 01:16:38


01:16:39 --> 01:16:46

You see the difference, but this is the opinion of majority of scholars. There is another good opinion there are a minority of scholars.

01:16:48 --> 01:16:53

But I prefer that we follow the opinion of the majority will allow Thailand to be in the safe side.

01:16:54 --> 01:17:13

I have seen great scholars saying you know both of them are very strong, both of them by looking at the evidence, the proofs, both of them are very strong. But to be in the safe side, we follow the opinion of the majority is your moral dilemma. You got it. Five let me finish.

01:17:16 --> 01:17:23

No, if you are traveling for five days or six days, then it is more than four days then you don't you don't benefit from these concessions.

01:17:25 --> 01:17:28

After four days, less than four days you can benefit from

01:17:29 --> 01:17:39

because as I said, If you travel to another place and you stay there you are in a hotel in your office. It's better for you to fast but you traveling in the desert is different story.

01:17:42 --> 01:17:43

Save further

01:17:57 --> 01:18:21

majority of scholars they said their brother is asking about calculations. Those who follow calculations majority of Muslim scholars. He said we're not supposed to follow calculations. Majority. It's a matter of discussion for the whole year. I mean every time people talk about it, we'll handle it. We solved it in Calgary Yeah, we solved it because they will have another Hadith maybe I'll mention it later on

01:18:22 --> 01:19:06

this hadith and Sunnah tubidy rasa salvia cool Assam we all were so Munez will fit through Elma after oneness. So he said you start fasting when people start fasting and you break your fast when people break their fast they will never have different interpretation decide for Salah Salem might have meant here the Khalifa the decision of the Khalifa if we have Khalifa when he makes a decision that people and gives you know his commands to the Muslim community to start passing then we start fasting with them and we break our fast with them. In some rule ama they said if there is no Khalifa then we fall the majority and here in ISC to be frank and honest with you, we decided to hold the

01:19:06 --> 01:19:14

majority which is the biggest organization in town which is MCC. We wait for the decision every year to avoid fitna

01:19:15 --> 01:19:17

Do you feel happy if we do something else?

01:19:19 --> 01:19:59

No one will feel happy about it right. And we have a proof in soon and determining and this is the third opinion should we follow international means it will local more certainty but there is this third opinion is there and that is the proof and we are happy with it. Because every year we fast with the majority of Muslims worldwide, we fast with around 90% of Muslims worldwide Hamdulillah I know most of the people here in this organization on this town pay attention maybe to Sir odia but we when we when you look at hamdulillah the type of internet and you know it's easy to know

01:20:00 --> 01:20:14

All the moon sightings in many countries Muslim countries, so hamdulillah I've been following this for the last maybe 10 years will every year we're fasting or breaking our fast with the majority of Muslims, which is good.

01:20:15 --> 01:20:17

It makes you more comfortable without Allah

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


01:20:22 --> 01:20:25

no hola hola hola whoo it's Monday or Tuesday

01:20:27 --> 01:20:29

by the owner Maddy said.

01:20:32 --> 01:21:04

Of course I told you pregnant woman and breastfeeding if someone a woman is breastfeeding, she's allowed they're allowed to break their fast in sha Allah if they are worried about their unborn child or winning baby. So Allah Subhana Allah has given them the rasa and because they have to make up for those days before the next Ramadan if they are not able then we can make that make up for these days after the next Ramadan you are allowed to break your fast to help someone else someone is drowning

01:21:05 --> 01:21:12

or is burning someone is in great trouble and you need to save his life you are allowed to break your fast for that purpose

01:21:17 --> 01:21:17


01:21:22 --> 01:21:31

yeah you are allowed you are allowed to break your fast to save the life of someone else and then you make up inshallah for this for this fast later

01:21:33 --> 01:21:55

say V said also now talking a little bit about what breaks our fast with doesn't break there are you know the common question that we hear all the time I drops don't break our Fast E drops you know to break a break our fast blood test does not affect our our fast when we take a blood test.

01:21:57 --> 01:21:59

But how about nasal drops?

01:22:01 --> 01:22:12

They are an exception. We break our fast burn is very Cintia elantech Hakuna Simon is a Hadith of Rasul Allah says Allah, He said to one of the Sahaba

01:22:14 --> 01:22:19

sniff water up deeply unless you are fasting.

01:22:20 --> 01:22:35

So the owner they said if sniffing up sniffing water up deeply does not affect fasting as Allah Salam would not have mentioned it would not have told the person that you stay away from it when you are fasting.

01:22:36 --> 01:23:11

So they said anything that goes through the nose will break our fast so but drop a I dropped the E drops. You know if we if we take blood tests, inshallah all these things do not break our fast. And they said our fast is broken. If it is done with three conditions. The first one is it has to be done. We break our fast intentionally we do it on purpose. Like so how about if you eat are forgetting that you are fasting? Who you drink?

01:23:13 --> 01:23:21

You forgot that you are fasting? Does it affect your fast? It doesn't it is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. Don't do it again.

01:23:22 --> 01:23:33

So it's okay. It will not affect your fast and you don't have to make up for that day. You don't have to make up for that. Do you want to have q&a after my marriage? Because I see many people raising their hands.

01:23:34 --> 01:23:40

Do you want to have q&a after marriage? Because it's time for them? Right it's time for them.

01:23:41 --> 01:23:45

So we'll continue Shala after Marie for 1015 minutes for those who want to stay

01:23:46 --> 01:23:49
