O'Brien Amina salatu salam ala Shafi Mercedez Nam Hamid, who are early he was sabe he may finesse Allah subhanho wa Taala Anita cobalamin engineer, we pray to Allah subhanaw taala to accept our deeds and your deeds. And in this halacha as I said before, I mentioned in my announcements today that we're going to talk about Ramadan and some rulings. And we answer some questions in sha Allah, we usually do it every year when we do a workshop or to, to prepare ourselves, for you know, the beloved and the noble guests that will that is coming in sha Allah and within few two days
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to welcome Ramadan is to tell the Muslims about Ramadan and make the announcement in the most beautiful way.
In the most beautiful ways. One of his Hadith had a salatu salam. He used to say to the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu attack on shahada Ramadan shahidul Baraka Asha who Baraka that Ramadan has come to you all, and it is a month of blessing. Where you Nico will Loafie in which Allah Subhana Allah Allah will suffice you Oh, Allah Subhana Allah will suffice the believers for you and zero Ramadan, then Allah Subhana Allah will send down upon you His mercy or Rama, where Hottel Hatha and Allah Subhana Allah will forgive your sins. This is the announcement that Rasulillah Salam used to say to make before the coming of Ramadan. Were Stratego fee he do. And then Allah subhanaw taala answer
your supplications so this is a Bushra This is glad tidings from rasool Allah says Selim to the believers that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada will accept your DUA in Ramadan. Ian buruma, who elect and fusi come where you where he become Mala Ekata who and this is very beautiful, he said, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says Allah is saying that Allah subhanaw taala looks at your competition of italic affiliate NFS in which NFE soon and for this, that the competitors compete. Allah Subhana Allah made the said this is after he described the pleasures of Jana. So people should compete for this not for something else, you know, for houses or cars or wealth or money or gold and silver. People should
compete for this with exotic affiliate and FSC with NFE soon, so Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam here, your kulula Sahaba young guru la isla tena Fossey Karim, Allah will look at your competition, your efforts, the efforts that you are making Ramadan, will you bear he become mela kettle and he will proudly tell the angels about your efforts about your deeds. Allah subhanaw taala will be talking to the angels proudly about your EBA that about your fasting but you're the carrot about your salad This is beautiful for our Allah Amin and fusi come higher and show Allah goodness from yourself. So in a shatter Yemen hurry Murphy Rahmatullah. He said really the wretched, the miserable person the
miserable person is the one who is denied who is deprived from Allah's mercy in this month. This is the conclusion of his statement, the conclusion of his announcement Ali salatu salam, this hadith is felled in measure Mazola it he said really, the miserable person is the one who is deprived from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in this month. Now before I start talking about, you know, other issues regarding this blessed month, I would like to say that this Eva has two pillars. When we talk about salah to talk about the pillars of Salah to talk about the NIA Bucha community haram both standing up in Salah during Gurukula and sujood. The last the shareholders are pillars of solid. If
they are not there, one of them is not there. If we're missing one pillar, our Salah is not valid, so you have to come back and do that salata again or do that pillar again and then can continue to complete your solid, your solid will not be valid without any pillar if one pillar is missing. Now for fasting to be accepted. We have two pillars. The first one is the near the intention that you make at nighttime before Fajr you have to make it before Fajr and Nia is not something that you announced that you pronounce with your with your tongue. It's not something that you say because people are used to say no way to an Asuma Verdun Chara Ramadan for either. I intended to fast
Ramadan tomorrow as an obligation. You don't have to do say to do this. You don't have to say it is in your heart. I mean, actually the moment you stand up before Fajr and he takes a hole this is an
evidence, strong evidence that you are planning to fast the next day. So actually one of the benefits of having so hold is to confirm your name. That's why Iris Allah sent him set to Sahara. Fair enough is a hurry Baraka take the mean of the whole, it is a blessed meal, there is baraka in it. So one of the benefits of Sahar is that you confirm your intention, because there are people who would sleep and they will know they will not know that Ramadan is tomorrow, so they don't make the meal. What is the ruling regarding these people who don't make the intention, one in Ramadan, people who will be fasting in Ramadan, but didn't have knowledge didn't ask or out of laziness or didn't
pay attention? Or they were very tired and they went to bed and we didn't forget for God to ask. So in the wake up in the morning and people are fasting, so what is their ruling the ruling is the the have to fast. They have to continue fasting in that day, but they have to make up for the day because they miss the intention. They didn't have they didn't make the intention before Fajr that's why Rasul Allah wa salam, ala Rasulillah Salam said in a hadith collected while Imam unnecessary manlam will be near to cm a couple of fishery fellow cm Allah who the one who does not make the intention of fasting before Fajr then he is fasting is not valid. It is enough to make a Nia for the
whole month. But if someone breaks his fast in the middle of the month, due to his traveling or sickness, and then he tries after a couple of days to or to continue his or restart his fasting again. Then he has to renew his intention. He has to renew his intention. So this is the first pillar making the NIA before Fajr time. And the second pillar of fasting is to refrain from food and drink and from marital relationship, what we mean by marital relationship, the full engagement with one's wife because the other things could be halal if someone can control himself. So Allah says salam, you know, there is no, we shouldn't be shy when it comes to learning. The material of the
deen Salah Salem used to kiss some of his wives while he's fasting, because he has the ability to control his desires and the ultimate. He said if someone had the ability has the ability to control his desires, he's allowed to do this. Otherwise he should stay away from it. When we say stay away from refrain from marital relations, we mean the full engagement with a one's wife, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, and I assume that everyone knows what I'm talking about. If it is not clear, you can ask me later on inshallah. So this is the second pillar is to refrain from food and drink and marital relationship with your with your wife. Now talking about the goals, we need to have goals
for Ramadan. And everyone can have his his own agenda for Ramadan. Anyone can have his own goals anyone is free to sit down with the idea of fasting and a hadith. Or any hour he can look at here's his own personal conditions, his problems and then come up with a list. I want I want to achieve this and this and this and this Ramadan. But you know, if we look at the ayat and Hadith, we can come up with some goals for all Muslims. Because actually, Ramadan is a great school. It's a great training ground for all Muslims to train themselves to change to introduce some changes in their life. So I I thought about four golds, and I think everyone would agree about them. The first one is
the enhancement of Taqwa. And this is a clear, we talked about it in our hotel. We talked about it in the previous years. The enhancement of Taqwa we said because Allah subhanaw taala started the idea to fasting with tacos. You live in America at Valley consumer Kamakoti Valentina. publikum La La Quinta taco first aisle 183 he ended this passage with this group of irate 187 was taco okay vedika Ubay you know law at the nursing home yet taco started this topic with taco ended it with taco. So it means we're Allahu Allah, that one of the major goals and it could be the most important goal. The first thing is to enhance our taco to increase our tacos, fear of Allah subhana wa Tada.
So this is this is the first goal. And Jaco is important year one and we talked about it in the hotbar in detail for whoever did not attend our football here last week or eight and eight today.
Tekoa is important for the acceptance of our deeds because Allah Subhana Allah told us in the story of the two sons of Adam, go to i 27. In surah Tenma Ada, Allah told us about the story of the two sons of Adam just repeating what I said before that one of them offer the both of them offer the sacrifice. Allah accepted from the first one did not accept the sacrifice of the second one. And the one whose sacrifice was rejected. He told his brother I will surely kill you. And this is a sign that he didn't have Taqwa because he was willing to kill his own brother. This is a sign that he didn't have to who the other one. What was his response? What was his answer? It is a rule that has
no exception. It never ate a Campbell Allahu Meenal Mutata. And Allah only accepts Allah. Allah accepts only from those who are who have fear of Allah in their hearts. God fearing people, people who have Taqwa. So this is a very strong message to every Muslim, that if I don't have Taqwa that means May Allah Subhana Allah Allah Almighty, our my deeds might be bad that my salad my zakat could be rejected.
And imagine, imagine the only doing all these things coming to the Messiah to pray and fast for for for growth through the fasting of 19 hours every day. I give you the cattle fitter and do all these things and at the end, meet Allah subhanaw taala and you're told you're fasting, your deeds are not accepted.
What is taqwa is to have is to stay away from what Allah Subhana Allah has forbidden and Mohammed
sins and Marcy, acts of disobedience is not about increasing your Salah to your liquor or the carrot, okay? These things will help you to increase your taco will reinforce your your self discipline, your taqwa your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. But the foundation of Taqwa is to stay away from us because there are people who will be who will pray in this dunya who will give us a cat who will fast and do a lot of deeds.
And on the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah says Allah and Montura Allah Santeria will reject all their deeds, why what is their problem? You know what is problem? Their problem Rasul Allah as I said them told us about them in a hadith. He said when they are, by themselves, the violate the limits of Allah, privately, when they are in public, with people, they are good.
They show goodness to people, but when they are by themselves, alone, they break the laws, the Sharia laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala this is their problem. So they were doing things for the sake of gaining some reputation in the community.
This is their problem. They were this group of people were mentioned in the Hadith, that when they are alone,
they they know that Allah Subhana Allah is looking at them. But they had no Taqwa. That's why this man the son of Adam, he said in the Maya Kabbalah Allahu Meenal Motoki. So this is the first goal. enhancement of Taqwa the second word could be development of willpower and self discipline.
Yeah, when when we talk about self discipline,
we remember those who are trying to improve their life, the conditions of their life. In this world today, there are people who like to lose weight, people who like to make more money. But then when we talk about method and losing weight and having a healthy life, there are people who spending money right? Spending 1000s of dollars
you know, consulting doctors and physicians and talking to health practitioners about how to control their food cravings.
They're doing this Ramadan is a great opportunity. It's a free gift by Allah subhanaw taala given to all Muslims to train themselves how to control their desires. You control food, food does not control you imagine you go for 19 hours without food for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and that's why Ramadan is so special. Ramadan is so special. It is Eva It's it's a unique ribeye that we'll talk about is about what is unique about it when I talk about the Hadith today very important Hadith. But you do this for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have to do it. self discipline has been defined as that you know is the habit of doing what you should do.
When you should do it. Whether you like it or not, this is self discipline
is the habit of doing what you are supposed to do.
We all know what is good and what is bad, you will have the ability to distinguish between what is good for us and what is not good most of the people have the ability to make the difference between the two paths, right. So, self discipline is the is the habit of doing what you are supposed to do,
when you should do it at the time, the right timing, whether you like it or not, that's why it was self discipline was also defined by some professionals in the self development, science of self development. It is a we gave it one word self denial. They said it is self denial, you deny yourself the short term gains, you deny yourself the pleasure of making some short term gains in order to make some long term gains. And this is the this is actually the philosophy of you know Taqwa because Taqwa is you stay away from Mohammed, your neffs might like this Muhammad, you like to have to do some transactions. But because they are mixed with riba you stay away from them, but your neffs
wants you to go and get engaged in this in transactions to make more money. Because your neffs wants to wants you to make more money, right? This is your desire and the desire of every human being. But you stay away from it because you know it's haram. So you are sacrifices, you are sacrificing a short term gain for the sake of earning a long term gain on the Day of Judgment.
This is how we get Jana, we sacrifice some of our desires, some of our convenience, and all the things that we like to do as human beings, we stay away from them for the sake of what making a long term game Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
So Ramadan is a great training ground for the fulfillment of this purpose.
When it comes to time management, time management, yet one, we see many Muslims, actually in Ramadan,
in Ramadan, making the necessary adjustments, to come to the masjid, to pray the five daily prayers, including fajr prayer, and the force themselves to come to taraweeh and pray at night after 11 from 1130 to 1230. Maybe they go home after 12 o'clock, we make the sacrifices. So they have the ability to do them. And they have the ability, they make the time to come during Ramadan to the mercy to pray the five daily prayers and the make time to recite the Quran, the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala our message to ourselves
and to everyone that if we are able to do it in Ramadan, then we should we do it should be able to do it for the rest of their. So Ramadan is a school.
It's a proof that you are able to do it. If you did it, you're able to do it for one month, you should be able to do it for the rest of the year. There is no excuse no excuses.
And there is a third group of this ummah, who did not they do not make any extra step. No extra step whatsoever. They fast. But they don't come to the massage. They don't recite Quran they might waste their time by watching the games, World Cup games and so on. No, no, no extra step. So our message to them is if there is a group of Amma of this ummah, we're able to make the necessary adjustments and they are coming to the massage and reading Quran coming to tearaway, then you should be able to do it too. You don't have an excuse.
So Ramadan is a great actually, as I said, a great opportunity for all of us insha Allah to do this adjustments to to increase our self to develop our willpower and our self discipline.
Something else beautiful about Ramadan is to
train ourselves how to focus on our intentions.
Because inner purifying your intention is not something easy. There are great scholars in our history, who said we sought knowledge in the beginning we sought knowledge for other than Allah subhanaw taala forever in any accord and learn this knowledge has helped us to correct our intention. And we dedicated our efforts and our efforts at the end acid we knew the importance of last but least had many of them. You know they change it correctly. They were able to purify their intentions after a loss
A period of time many of them they said well Allah I have struggled with my intention for years nears. And these are great scholars now to focus on your intention now to do things for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala this is something great because if you purify your intention, you will be one of the you will be one of the winners on the Day of Judgment. There is no doubt about it. 11 Atala has been sitting. Now fasting is the only evader, the only provider that can help you to do this. Why? Because there is no way for any human being on Earth to know that if you are fasting or not, not talking about Ramadan, because Ramadan, we assume that every Muslim is fasting, talking about
outside Ramadan. If you meet someone, your friend or colleague at work, okay, and you're sitting talking to each other, there is no way for you to know that if he's fasting or not, he could be fasting, but you don't know about it, unless he tells you, brother and fasting today. Even if you offer him some food, let's let's go to Tim Hortons to have some coffee, or get some eating in front of him and you offer some food, he can tell you I'm fine.
I am fine. Zack Allah here, I don't need to eat now. And he has a choice. He chose not to tell you about that. He's fasting, right?
There is no way for anyone to you know, even your wife. If you want to hide your fasting from your wife, you leave in the early morning, seven o'clock or six o'clock. And then you fast forward the whole day. You come back after more, you break your fast outside. We come back at Maghrib time and you eat with your family. Like having dinner with your family. There is no way for your wife to know if you are fasting or not. If you want to do it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. But if you come to pray in the masjid, everyone knows the people in the Mercy they know that you are here and he looked at you and your intention might be might be affected. If you're giving a donation, it's
okay to give it in public. And it's good to give it privately but if you give it in public, it's okay. It's fine. But there is a risk there a risk that you might be showing off right? reciting Quran in front of people doing other things hedge there are people who do hedge, but there is a risk that they might be looking for a title Haji you know Haji Fuller and Haji Ahmed Mohammed have this problem back home right has so severe or problems that are risk people are taking risk with this evidence. The first thing not fasting unless you tell people that in fasting is no way for other people. The other thing about fasting which is good. So mm other people will assume that you are
fasting because you are an adult you are saying you are healthy, you are present you're not traveling. They assume that you are fasting. If you want you to break your fasting, you can do it privately.
You can do it privately. You can go to the basement and eat, close the door. Lock yourself in your office and eat right.
When your wife and your children leave the house. You go to the kitchen and have a feast
no one would know about it right? But you don't do it. Why? Because you are fasting for the sake of Allah.
This is what is special about fasting
you don't do it you fast you continue fasting you refrain from food or drink because you are doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala this is what is great about fasting and that's why Allah spent Allah said in a hadith Lucia will read the Hadith to you now.
In this hadith Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said Colorama Livni Adam, you will die for Al Hasina, to be actually unfairly ill so for me it is life. He said every good deed of the son of Adam is multiplied from 10 times till 700 times 700 times it was mentioned in the Quran. Surah Al Baqarah 10 times was mentioned in the Quran was mentioned in a hadith. So some deeds are multiply 10 Some of them more than 1015 2030 Depends on your conditions, your intention, Allah subhanaw taala we wrote his his his servants in different ways, but the maximum multiplication is 700. This was ALLAH says salam said in a hadith, this hadith is say so he said then Carl, Allah who was chosen when Allah
when the messenger of Allah is saying call Allah who has the vision? It means that this hadith is Cuzzi Hadith. Carl Allah who has the origin in the soul for in the Hooghly were an Zeebe he said except for fasting. So Rasul Allah says Allah He said, This is the rule for all the good deeds, all the EVA that this is the rule they are multiplied from 10 up to 700
But Allah subhanaw taala
In a hadith codici, is telling the messenger convey this message to my servants in law. So
the sound fasting is an exception for in the who lead, it is for me. So the servant is doing this fasting for the sake of Allah, what He Zb we're under a GB and I alone will reward for it. Now there are some rules and there are some people who said, Okay Wait a minute Allah is saying here except for fasting, it is for me. But we know that all the other a bi that we do that for the sake of Allah we pray for for the sake of Allah we give sadaqa for the sake of Allah. We read Quran for the sake of Allah we do hash for the sake of Allah. Why is he saying about fasting? It is for me? How could the other evidence Yes, the other ability we are supposed to do them for the sake of Allah to so
therefore Allah. So, okay, what is special about fasting? You're the only ama could not come up with an exact answer, but Imam now he has mentioned a couple of answers. He said, The first one is what Allahu Allah and
he said that
the polytheists the pagans, in the history of human beings
in the throughout history did not offer or did not worship their gods through fasting.
So they used to offer donations or food to their gods, they used to bow down in front of their gods do sujood and ruku they might do hash move from one place, because has in Arabic is caused to move towards the destination. So they might move from one area, one town, one city to another city, going towards to me to make hash to a certain shrine, or a place that is sacred place or no. So this these things are happening in different religions. And these religions could be no pagan religions. So they said those Moshiri cool and polytheists have worship their gods and their idols, through different acts of EVA that but not fasting.
Fasting is the only a vida, the only act of worship that was only offered to Allah subhana wa Tada. So no one has worshipped an idol through fasting, he said today, and fasting to Hubel or alert or Rosa, this is something that didn't happen in the history for human
human beings. This is one of the opinions that Imam nawawi has mentioned. The second explanation, they said it is for Allah because it is secret, no one is able to know about it. It's not something that is done publicly. What I the way I explained it, just few minutes ago, when I told you that there is no way for anyone to know that you are fasting if you want to hide your fasting. So you only let this ever be HA HA HA HA Hee it's not. It's not done publicly in front of people. So this is the second explanation. The third, the third explanation, they said no one knows the rewards of fasting except Allah subhanaw taala including maybe angels, maybe they don't know that the reward
Because Allah subhanaw taala will tell the angels about the multiplications of the rewards, write them down and everything. But we said it is something can be confidential. Only Allah knows the reward of the fasting people. And that's why in this hadith in this hadith, Rasul Allah says SLM, he said, he saw me Farhatullah, and we'll talk about it at the end of the Hadith, the site of the fasting person has two occasions of joy and happiness. So we'll talk about them, you will be excited, who will be surprised on the Day of Judgment for the amount of reward that he will find with Allah subhanaw taala
so in this hadith could you see, he said for in the Hollywood HCB, yet there are Shehata who Obama whom and actually
he had the farmer who was shahada, whom in actually so he would leave his food and his drink and his desires for my sake. And that's why this is one of the explanations why Allah subhanaw taala said for in the Julio nicb one of the explanations is this here, this part of this hadith, that you leave your desires in food and drink for the sake of Allah, because your nafs has no share in this a Buddha. I could be doing a lot of prayers in front of people and my neffs has some share in it. Any I'm looking for some reputation, or doing sadaqa or anything that I am doing in front of people. My name is nefs my neffs could have some share in it. Like I am happy about
You know, this deeds, you know, I'm gaining some reputation in the community. But first thing No, because it is against you're going against your desires, desires. If you're neffs you love to have that breakfast love to have, you know, lunch on time at 12 o'clock or one or two. You want to drink some coffee, you know, to have your, you know, to enjoy yourself. We go against your desires. So this is one of the explanation. That's why last Mantilla said for in the Hooghly we're gonna HCB him. And then he said reciting me for Hutton Kenny the fastening person has two occasions of joy and happiness. The first one is
when he breaks his fast, you will break your fast you're happy because you made a great achievement. You fasted for 18 or 19 hours. It is a great drama from Allah spent Allah Allah spent Allah has made it easy for you to make this achievement. The second point you are happy because you are here he'll be eating within two minutes or three minutes. You have food in front of you. And it's normal, if you are smiling. It's only normal right? So you'll be happy, this is the name of Allah subhanaw taala and also the second occasion of joy is when you meet Allah subhanaw taala you will know about your rewards, you know they are not 700 you know they are not 10 they are not 700 they are more than
that and you will discover your rewards on the day of judgment and you will be happy when you meet Allah subhanaw taala
and he said that the end well hello fi Hello fluffy. Allah him in real misc. The smell of
the coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better to Allah than the frankness of Mr. Musk
sorry and this is in Sahih Muslim. The type of mosquitoes Allah says Adam is talking about is the natural one that comes from deals because from a soccer that is beneath the dominant of a deer is not the artificial muscle that we are using nowadays. You go to Saudi Arabia Dubai to one yellow to this mosque that you cannot stand
you know many brothers that have allergy against it and no Salah Salem is talking about the natural mosque. Anyway. So this is this is a great Hadith about you know the the rewards of the fasting people and why fasting is unique why fasting is a special act of a bad
faith. Now let's talk a little bit about some few key issues.
Moon sighting just a reminder, reminder that here in Calgary hamdulillah in icy, we follow the hadith of Rasulullah Selim that is mentioned in Second Timothy, a Muslim and Muhammad in Sunan, Abu Dawood and some other books of Hadith. It said a sommelier with a sumo will fit over to the room full of hangover to the home. So he was talking to the Muslim community. He said fasting is the day when you fast and he was pointing to the Muslim community in Medina.
And Al feta is when you as a Muslim community break the fast and love her and love her you know, sacrifice and love her is the day when you sacrifice you offer your sacrifice, which means the ruler Maddie said here this hadith bathe based on this hadith that Muslims are supposed to follow the GMR the majority of Muslims either when does your ma whether they have an imam whether they have an Imam, an Imam, we mean by Imam, a leader, a ruler a Khalifa. And he of course the Khalifa is made is supposed to make matura with his with his, you know assistance and with the rest with the religious authority in the land, and then they have to come up with a decision when they make decisions.
Muslim are supposed to follow in that land follow their decision. This is the explanation of this hadith. If there is no leader than the follow the majority of Muslims, majority of Muslims now they are in the biggest organization here in Calgary which is MCC.
MCC is the biggest organization Muslim Council of Calgary. So we wait for the decision every year. We know that the follow international citing international moves, I think they look at different Muslim countries and they follow their decision. Nowadays, Maharani many scientific centers in the Middle East and Muslim countries said it's impossible to see the moon it's impossible today to see the moon except maybe with the Brazil maybe in some other countries in South America. This is the only exception they mentioned.
By the rest of the Muslim world, they said it's impossible to see it. And this would happen. Many committees from Egypt and Saudi Arabia and different countries, they went out and they observed the moon. We were not able to see it. This is what Rasulillah Salam said so Moliro Yeti will after a little at first in Houma la confer Camilla data Cherie data. Shabana has anything he said. So we'll start fasting when you see the moon, break you fast when you see the new moon of Shawwal for in Houma, la come if you are confused, he couldn't see the moon, then you have to complete the 30 days of Shabbat and this is what happened in this case. Tomorrow is the 30th of Shabbat and we are
completing VEDA, the month of Shaban and we will start our fasting with majority of Muslims, majority of Muslims in the Muslim world with the exception of Yemen, Turkey, and Russia and maybe Italy and some other European countries because they follow calculations. They don't follow the moon sighting, they follow calculations. So they are whether you follow Etihad and mipela which is international Moon sighting, or local Moon sighting, will you follow the Majumdar the majority in your city? Based in this hadith in Sahih al Bukhari and tell me the surah Tirmidhi sorry, and soon and Abby there wouldn't some other sources of Hadith and if you are in a dimension, and the follow
local local mon citing the main organizations in Edmonton they follow local months is citing that like Calgary the follow international most citing, then you go with the Gemma with the group in Edmonton. You don't start fasting by yourself. This is the Mercy Health many well known qualified scholars. You fast with your Gemma. Okay, so this is the first point, Moon sighting and Hamdulillah we don't have this problem because in other cities, they have different massages starting their first on different days. And this is a fitna people who will not feel comfortable about it. I mean, I don't care about other Muslims in different cities, other countries, if they start on a different
day, it's their honesty had their own decision. I mean, if Muslims in Turkey start starting tomorrow, I don't feel bad about it. It's okay, that's fine. That's the decision. In Yemen. They're starting tomorrow is their decision. But if a masjid here in Calgary, is starting tomorrow, and then the rest of Muslims are starting their first on Sunday. This is division because we are Muslims worldwide community. And we were supposed to be united at least regarding these issues, at least regarding in the same town. I mean, other cities and different places. Okay, it's the decision. They wish they had we cannot force Muslims of Edmonton or Muslims of Edmonton to follow Calgary. But at
least the Muslims in Calgary are Muslims in Edmonton, Muslims in Toronto, and different in the same city, they have to be united regarding these issues because they have the ability to communicate with each other, talk to each other and come up with a methodology and Alhamdulillah. We believe that our methodology here is based on the hadith of Rasulillah Salam, the instructions of Rasulullah Salam and we were happy with that, because the problem between local and international Moon sighting you will never know scholar will be able to solve this issue. These two opinions will stay there till the Day of Judgment. Both of them have good valid excused proofs, both of them local and an
international non citing is very difficult to say this is the right opinion. Then we have to follow local or international but here in Calgary for a long time we've been following international Moon sighting and Anna in this organization in IRC we follow this hadith in behind Tirmidhi and everyday who that we follow the GEMA the biggest Chema in Calgary and we are doing it we've been doing it for years we're Allahu tal Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen was happy with that. The time of him sec. I have to clarify this again I talked about it in in Joomla that I have to clarify it again. There is nothing such inSec in Sharia. The only there is no timing before further
on which you have to stop eating.
You're basically in another world you are you are in another world. You are allowed to keep eating until further it's time to continue. Continue eating until freshers time until it's further it's five o'clock first and then you stop at five o'clock or 459 You are allowed to do that. But you're in Sakhi yet you see them in massage it in second year. Those schedules they tell you stop 10 minutes before to be in the safe side.
And here in Calgary I think yes we agree with that because we have problems with timing. Now we will not because we will
Leave that it is sunnah to start to stop eating before 10 or 15 minutes now because there are some problems some issues with timing in Calgary. Here we have metadata to famous. There are five or six. If you go to the internet, go Islamic finders you find and definitely some of them are wrong. Some of them nowadays they tell you first it is three o'clock. Some of them they tell you nowadays Fajr is 247 Definitely these timings are wrong, there is no doubt about it. This is the following and Fajr Academy there are two types of Fajr al Fajr Academy, the false Fajr and at first it was Sadoc, the genuine and the right measure. Now, the ruler, many Roma in North America in United States of
America qualify their own and like their own the Amisha assembly of Muslim jurists of America, they saying we should follow we should follow the North America timing, which is the default timing default timing. And Islamic Finder here in Calgary, we don't have this timing we have the criteria of one hour and half. It's been used for a long time. Maybe for 20 or 30 years Allah Allah mana when he came to Calgary and found it being used here in Calgary in 1999. So it's been 15 years, at least. But before that it was used. So I don't know for 2025 years. This criteria was is used in Calgary, which is the criteria one hour and half, one hour and a half is not good for the whole year. To be
honest with you. It is sometimes good. Sometimes it is good. Sometimes it is not good. Regarding your Asia, we're fine. I think we're praying here 1125 I did some observations by myself. And sometimes I leave home like after Asia after maghrib I come at the end before time 10 minutes we'll like go around some places here in Calgary before coming to this place, may try to make some observations, I think with a shower fine. Firstly, we could not solve it until now because a person has to wake up early around three o'clock or and go to I have to choose a hill where he can watch both sides, east and west. He has to be able to observe both directions. And when the time when he's
able to distinguish between the black thread or the black, the darkness the darkness in the West and the brightness of the Twilight in the east and that is the time of Fajr and this what Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah had a very unlikable title labia Domina heighten actually mean and Fajr 187 Eat keep continue eating and drinking until it is a clear or you are able to distinguish between the black thread in the West and the white thread in the east. So until you are established, you're able to distinguish between the darkness in the West, this is the east This is the worst Yes, darkness in the West, and the brightness of the Twilight in the in the east.
So what is the solution? How do we solve it here? We're following the opinion of these good scholars in the United States of America for Ramadan for now, to be in the safe side the difference between North American time and between our timing local timing is 15 minutes. So all the imams in Calgary are telling people this year try to stop eating 15 minutes before Fajr time
not 10 minutes. The insect here has 10 minutes, so add another five minutes. So the first day of Ramadan fudgey will be 355 to be in the safe side you stop eating at a 340 Yes Not 345 The M Sekiya tells you 345 For the sake of your fasting to be in the safe side. Stop eating five minutes before the M saqi Allahu Taala Anna, we will change the time for Fudger Jamal because it's now 430 We don't want people to have to hold and come here and keep waiting till 430 So
on the first day of Ramadan, we'll make salata Gemma here and in the other place maybe for 1010 minutes after four o'clock. So people will have so whole make will do. They come here instead of waiting for half an hour. They wait only for 10 minutes praise your ma then they go back if they want to have some sleep because most of you have work to do they have to wake up again at seven o'clock to go to work. And you can advise your Imams. If you live if you pray Fudger in other massages, you can tell them please can you do some adjustments in Ramadan instead of having the gap between Fajr time and the econo time half an hour? reduce it to 1015 minutes how
People make it easy on people because it's hard. We know it's difficult, but Allah Subhan can make it easy for those who are excited about Ramadan and those who have good intention to fast Ramadan. You know these are two things that are important here one, I talked about them in my hotbar Friday hotbar today and the last Friday he in this place and I will repeat them because they are important. Man sama Ramadan Eman and what is happen over Allahumma taka Demimonde MB min camara Maha Iman and 47 or ferula, Houma taka, MB min karma Laylatul Qadr. Eman and what is seven woofie Rolla humatrope. At the moment MB is what rasool Allah says Anand said whoever observed the fasting Ramadan with
faith and expecting the rewards from Allah his sins will be forgiven whoever do it does the pm Elaine in Ramadan Tara we praise Tara we had night with faith and expecting the rewards from Allah, his sins will be forgiven. Whoever prays Laylatul Qadr offers tarawih night prayer on Laylat al Qadr. With faith Eman and what is happening expecting the rewards from Allah his sins will be forgiven. If your sins will be forgiven inshallah you will be free from the punishment of hellfire because Allah subhanaw taala every night and Ramadan three's group of Muslims from the punishment of hellfire freedom from the punishment of via which is the third goal. We talked about enhancement of
Taqwa. We talked about
the development of what willpower and self discipline
the fourth goal is,
is what freedom from the punishment of hellfire. And number four, the third 1/3 One and Number four is acceptance of our door. I'll talk about it at the end shall the acceptance of our Doha Doha is very special in Ramadan, it should be one of your goals in Ramadan, how to increase your to and how to you know organize your plan your DUA
now let's finish with this few key issues. So we are done with the time of insect now Is it clear 15 minutes so you don't have Don't worry about your iPad. The timing for your iPad. timing for laptops don't worry about these timings.
Don't worry about them Don't worry about Islamic finder. Stop 15 minutes hopefully in sha Allah you will be in the safe side will allow Thailand even if there is a mistake Allah will not take you to account Why could you tell me why
your intention is good you are not doing it on purpose and Allah in the spirit of Bukhara said Hatay yet Abba yen Allah calm, hotter yet ever Jana loco, hi.
I'll try to love you or hate you. So even if I had a Debian until it is clear to you until it is clear to you. That means you are allowed to eat and drink until it becomes clear to you the difference between the darkness in the West and the brightness of Fajr.
So you could say and I'm not sure this is not clear to me.
But we are advising you to stop 15 minutes to be in the safe side.
Yeah, at the time of Rasul Allah says two people used to make them one of them is billion or the Allah Allah but we used to make and then at nighttime,
what is it what was the purpose of this event?
To wake up so people can wake up to make Sahara and make although and prepare themselves for fashion also have SOHO and the second person Abdullah Abdul Maktoum, the only Maktoum he was blind. He was not able, he didn't have the ability to look at the signs the brightness of Azure. But he had family members telling him hey, it's time for Fajr stand up, make the other
so there is some flexibility.
He was blind, but there was Allah says Allah appointed him because he was responsible. He knows that he's honest and responsible. And he had people telling him and his family members telling him his family members telling Him we will watch for the sign and tell him it's Fajr time fudging the time make the other until they are sure that the budget is there.
Okay, so there is some flexibility will allow to Allah.
By the way, as a fifth he he one of the issues if someone continues eating, the leaving, that's still nighttime, does he have to make up for the day or not?
But he discovered later on that he ate like food you had to hold 10 minutes after fajr
later on, but when he was eating, he did not do it on purpose. He was actually he was believing that still nighttime
My Father is not in.
Does he have to make up for the day or not?
He doesn't have to. He doesn't have to because the ruling is remains for the nighttime either until until proven otherwise.
When it is nighttime,
so you can continue eating and drinking until it is proven to you it is clear that it's fragile time. Now, the other issue the opposite.
If someone breaks his fast before 10 minutes, 15 minutes before Maghrib time believing that memory is
does he have to make up and then later on he would discover that oh my god, I made a mistake. I broke my fast before McGriff time 10 Then you have to make up for the day or not?
he has to make up for the day. There is a difference. What is the difference here? It's day time here he has to be careful. He has to keep the ruling of day time.
Today time ruling is confirmed until proven otherwise. He has to make sure that some side sunset is there.
Because we wonder at nighttime Allah subhanaw taala said, keep continue eating and drinking until it is clear to you that Fajr is there.
So he's allowed to eat and drink. And this guy was not sure. But when it comes to food mother of No, it's daytime. So you have to keep in mind that it is daytime until you have a solid proof that mercury is in.
You cannot break your fasting until Mercury is in. Now there is a third case if someone eat and drink while forgetting that is fasting.
Does he have to make up for the day. He doesn't have to. Because there is a Hadith about it. It is a gift from Allah. Allah Allah Allah who was aka Allah has fed him and gave him to drink. So it is a gift from Allah He forgot. He forgot, not like this person who this person did not forget, he knows that he's fasting
is supposed to be fasting. But the problem is, he did not do his job properly, he has to make sure that Marguerite BS end before he can eat.
And it's easy to know, if his mother is invalid, you just have to look at the sun. When the sun disappears, the disk of the Sun, the disk of the Sun, not the brightness, the disk of the Sun disappears behind the horizon, then Mercury is in you can start eating very simple, right?
Traveling people. Now we know the traveling people are allowed to break their fast but how about if it is equal, whether the fast or break the fast is the same? Doesn't make a difference for them. What is better for them to break the fast or too fast?
Too fast is better because the timing of Ramadan is special. But if they're gonna hurt themselves, you will become extremely tired, they come back home maybe or they go to that different place and they cannot pray Taraweeh Everything is ruined, then it's better for them maybe to break the fast to have some power or energy to do other things.
They are but they have to they cannot break their fast while they are still in town within the city limit.
Even if you are taking the plane, even if you are taking the plane. Let's say your flight is seven o'clock. Can you break your fast six clock while still in Calgary? You can't.
No you can't you still we have to make the intention of fasting because you could go to the airport and the flight is canceled.
You can go to the airport and then you change your mind something happens. Your family gives you a call Hey, something happens come back cancel your flight. Anything could happen right? You have to leave the city limit. When you leave the city limit then you are a traveler.
within the city limits you are a local one of the locals. So you start don't start breaking your fasting even if you are traveling at 12 o'clock. Keep fasting till 12 o'clock. You leave the city limit at 1230 You are in the plane. He left the city limit or even five minutes, not half an hour, five minutes. That's it You can start eating that's okay. If you want to break your fast it's up to you.
Now sick people people who are sick. There are two types of sicknesses. We talked about them every year. Those who have permanent sickness permanent, there is no hope for them to recover in the future. Then the they have to feed
a poor person, a needy person, every one person for every day. So the total of 30 at the end of the month you have to feed 30 people
The food is the minimum amount of food is one kilo and half of any staple food, our staple food nowadays is rice 1.5, right. And this is the minimum, but the older Mother said it's better to make it a meal with some meat or some bread with some juice, make it a meal, lunch, or dinner or Iftar in Ramadan. For one person for each day, you feed one person, you are allowed to collect all this food or money at the beginning of the month, and you give it as a sadaqa, figure expiation for your for a person who is not able to fast, in the middle of the month, at the end of the month, everything is okay, that's fine. Even if you give a give the whole thing for one person that's fine, is not
preferred is not preferred, but that's fine for fasting, the expiation of fasting, but not for breaking your oath because you have to feed 10 People have someone violated that obligation and fasting in Ramadan by having by having full engagement with his wife. And you know what I mean by full engagement, right? full engagement.
Because this is very clear, they want to use the other route the intercourse, then he has to fast 60 days if he if he cannot free a slave, we don't have slaves nowadays. He has to fast 60 days.
If he's not able to fast 60 days consecutively in a row, then he has to feed 60 people and he cannot give this food or money to one person 60 He has to look for 60 people. But if someone breaks his fast
through another way, like a different way, not having relationship with his wife, like he ate he food and he doesn't have to he doesn't have to pay this expiation or or for 60 days, but it is a major sin He should know that it is a major sin. He has to make up make Toba and he has to make up for that day, make tilbyr and make up for the day, one day, and that's it.
So you know the difference now.
Now sick people who are they don't have a permanent sickness, they got sick and none of that, then they are allowed to break their fast and then make up for the day in the future inshallah didn't have to pay anything. They don't have to pay anything. Those people who have non permanent diseases or sicknesses, they don't have to pay just make the cover pregnant woman they are allowed to break the fast breastfeeding woman they are allowed to break their fast there's a rough so without any feeling of guilt, without any feeling of guilt. But pregnant woman or breastfeeding woman has two cases. Sometimes she's worried about her own safety. Then she has only to make up those days. She
doesn't have to pay anything. But she was not worried about her own safety. She was healthy fine, but she's worried about the safety of her baby. Not for herself for her baby. Then she has to make up for those days after if she breaks the fast and she has to pay for a video for every day which is feeding one needy person.
What are the other problems that could arise in Ramadan?
Oh now let's talk a little bit about the fourth goal and then we'll come back to some *face us if you have questions. The fourth goal we said the acceptance of our dua.
Now we know that I will do I will be accepted in Ramadan insha Allah because Allah sent me in the first Hadith I mentioned. This Allah says enemy used to make this announcement at the beginning of Ramadan. So in this announcement he said yesterday will Luffy dua Allah will accept your dragon Ramadan. And another proof that the last hurdler included in those ayat of fasting is Oracle Bacara. From 183 to 187. He included this is about accepting the DUA, and this I did not mention anything about fasting. So the ultimate he said every area is talking about fasting from 183 to 187 Except this 186 Either way, they're saying okay, birdie Hanifa in new curry Huji without a dare either that
failure stage Eboli where you mean it will be La La homier should do so there is nothing here about fasting. They said it's only about dua This is a proof that Allah subhanaw taala is promising His servants that he will accept the Ramadan because he included this ayah and this means he then said okay everybody when your servant ask you about Me, usually when there is a question from other people to rasool Allah says Allah, Allah Subhana Allah will tell him cool say here
In this area, Allah subhanaw taala did not say Coulier Mohammed say oh Mohammed say the word says removed. For a Neil curry The answer came directly right away for a new Kareem I am close, I'm near to them. What is the message here? The Roma they said Allah Subhana Allah wanted to send a message to his servants, that when it comes to do, there should be no mediator between you and me, are very close to you. I'm in here. You just have to raise your hands and ask and make dua. This is beautiful. But this what is beautiful about this I find Nihari bougie Buddha out there either dad I answer the dua or the supplication or the one of the one who calls upon me Uji without a day either
Dan when he calls upon me. Funny yesterday, Willie let them respond to my commands, and commanding them I'm asking them too fast this month, and also to obey Allah subhanaw taala during the other acts of worship, like praying and everything, suddenly SDG will lead let them respond to my invitation to my call to my commands for the SDG bully. What do you mean it will be and let them believe in me, la la han? Y'all should do so they might be rightly guided. So now do we know that our dua will be inshallah accepted. So what do you do increase your DUA and use to shoot after Salah between Adam and karma. And also at nighttime, when you take your soul, if you have these 510
minutes before you pour Fudger
before your time, this is a precious time, the last third time of every night, this is a very precious time. One of the benefits of this whole taking a hold because many people will say I'll just go home after taraweeh and eat something and that's it not wake up for the whole, I don't need to wake up for the whole just wake up for fresh.
That's good if wake up professor. But you know waking up or Sahara some extra benefits. One of the benefits is that if he takes a hold on you are awake, you're making too hard. This is an excellent time actually for making do that last third part of the night. And it's a very short night from 955 till 355 How many hours
six hours only. So what will be the last third part of the night, the last two hours. So from what 155 till 355, the first day of Ramadan 155. So basically from two o'clock to four o'clock, right? To grow to four o'clock, this is the last third part two from every, every night, this is the beginning of the month, it might change in the middle of the month at the end of the month. But this is at the beginning of the month, these last two hours, right. So if you weren't thinking so whole, you need to make do at that time. It's a precious time. Now, there are many Rudolfo said it's good if you have a list, think about all your needs, your goals,
may you might have a goal method or you want to memorize Quran within two years or three years. Write it down.
You want to make hash ring make hash before you don't have enough money to make hash, but you want Allah subhanaw taala to help you give you enough money to make hash, go to
one, okay, list it. So you come up with a list of doers. And then you keep repeating these two ads all the time whenever you do before Iftar as I said and you shoot between Atlanta and air karma when he trains and at the time of the whole activity takes a whole row before we take the whole it's up to you the last part of the night. And then hopefully Allah Subhana Allah by the end of Ramadan or after Ramadan, you might see some results. There are people who may try Ramadan and they were able to achieve their goals. So Allah subhanaw taala is very merciful. And he's he's promising to answer to us. So now we have 10 minutes before we signed up for Mary
Do you have questions regarding 50 issues
some of the United Nations you know fasting and we're the night is short nowadays.
I could not wake up in
the brother is saying yeah, regarding the intention The night is very short it's only six hours. Let's assume that they didn't couldn't wake up for the whole is my fasting valid or not. You need to make your near in between Orisha temperature time so anytime and the moment you know that you will be fasting
Tomorrow that's your intention you don't have to say make a statement
the place of Nia is the heart The only exception is for hedging camera when we make hedging say we have to say the bake Allahumma has written a bake Allahumma On Rotten we say it that's the only exception the rest of the act of ribeye that
with the NIA will make the NIA is in the heart even though it's solid we know that people before the solid no way to no solid Dora or Baraka intending to pray though this is not right we don't say we don't pronounce anything near in your heart you know that you're praying though forecasts there is no need to actually to to just think about forecasts praying though that's it enough Yes. So you're fasting will be valid inshallah Go ahead. So in the traveling time, so let's say we are doing casting and travel here
when it comes to if
you follow if you end up there a matter of time, you follow their timing, you don't break their fast based on the timing
like method and the break their fast maybe before Calgary, maybe two hours before Calgary. So you break your fast with them. From here to here, you break your fast Calgary time
I know and vice versa goes both ways
to our smooth more you break your first year yeah.
So you fall the the timing of your own land. Yes.
You can make
Yeah, you can make the ice to shoot why not? Is a good time actually to make dua.
Why I always get this question.
I mean, there are two opinions about it. That there are some Rolla Maddy said in Florida, you're not supposed to make dua in Florida in a different with a different language using a different language.
These mostly Hanafi scholars and some other scholars.
Another group of scholars, they believe that it's okay. Muslims are supposed to learn Arabic,
solely to express themselves to maybe to an Arabic, but if they cannot, they are allowed to make dua with a different language.
And I believe in the second opinion, I strongly believe in the second opinion, that people are allowed to make dua with different languages if they cannot express themselves in Arabic language. Because Allah Subhana Allah knows all languages. Allah subhanaw taala has sent other prophets and messengers with different languages, not all Prophets and Messengers spoke the Arabic language. There the original language of the Injeel the book that was given to isa Ali Salah was Hebrew. Musa Ali Salam, same thing.
Ibrahim Ali Salam used to speak their mic language, not the Arabic maybe learned Arabic later on Allah Allah. But in Iraq at the time we used to speak our mic. And then he used to speak Hebrew in when he moved to Palestine.
I don't believe language is a problem.
We worship Allah subhanaw taala and Arabic language because our Prophet spoke the Arabic language and it is the final message. The final message to humanity was came in Arabic language. Now Arabic language Yes, it's a beautiful language. But if you cannot speak this language, you can express yourself in sha Allah in different languages. But Allah Allah Allah I see no problem in that with you're praying for either or nephila. Oh Allah Allah Allah Allah but you have to do the test be Subhana Allah Spanner bIllahi min Arabic then the normal expressions of the regular expressions of vicar
Subhana Subhan Allah molecule produce
you know this is these expressions regular expressions of the Spirit who have to make them in Arabic but your own do do it in a in a different language that's fine
Ramadan Awolowo Rama
was to whom a pharaoh after all right convener now that hadith rifle Hadith. I heard this from Rhoda Am I saying this hadith is the eighth.
but it is Rama Yes. The meaning if we talk about the Hadith, the Hadith says the beginning of Ramadan. The first part of Ramadan is mercy and the second part of Ramadan is maxilla forgiveness of sins and the last part of Ramadan
is a freedom from the punishment of hellfire It could mean or not. The meaning of the hadith is correct there is no no doubt about it in the other Hadith the last hunt Allah frees every night some Muslims from the punishment of hellfire
Rasul Allah Selim used to announce to Muslims that you attack come shadow Ramadan, Ramadan has come to you and it is a month of blessing and mercy. So there is no doubt about it the meaning of the hadith is so high but the Hadith itself with these terms I think is not authentic is weak. Because the chain of narration there are some problems with the chain of narrations will allow to Adam there are some scholars or some Imams who use this hadith on the member. That's fine it should be shouldn't be a problem because the meaning is so Hey, now big boy go ahead
I'm in the middle of it in the middle of the day you get sick. So really sick should you fast or should you continue? No if you're really sick you have you're allowed to break your fast Yeah, especially for you guys. How old are you
alive and mashallah you can start fasting, try fasting. As long as you didn't reach the age of puberty then fasting is not an obligation but it's good you are encouraged to fast at this age, starting from 10 Actually before 10 But it is more emphasized for for young children who reached the age of 10 ks and Allah Salat by analogy through analogy on the Salah and salata Rasul Allah says and we said teach them at seven where they are at the age of seven and discipline them for not praying at the age of 10. So you are supposed to fast but if you cannot handle it, by all means, feel free to break
you're not supposed to hurt yourself.
you end up staying there for like a month or
Okay, when it comes to those people who travel for a long period of time, like the move from a city from Calgary, they go to another city and they know that they are staying they have two cases either they will stay there less than two then four days
then definitely I mean, in all my their head, they are allowed to break their fast if they want. As I said if it is equal, it doesn't matter if they fast or break their fast maybe it's better for them to keep fasting. Because this month is time is special is unique. And if you can make up the fast after Ramadan, it's not like fasting in Ramadan, there is a difference. But if you feel tired, overwhelmed and you feel like you need to break your fast you're doing some exams, doing some hard work. That's okay if it is less you're staying a period that is less than four days. If it is you know that you will be there staying more than four days one week two weeks to be in the safe side
and this is the opinion of majority of scholars that you keep fasting more than four days you keep fasting to be in the safe side Allah Alana
another question before last question before we make the other end because we are supposed to make them now
end of the day they get
to get angry
Yeah, he their first thing is valid as long as they don't hurt anyone where they're they don't insult other people. They don't
you know no one is afflicted by their anger.
But if they hurt other people for no reason, then they might lose the rewards of their fasting.
Yeah, and actually fasting is a shield against anger. emotions of anger and you know you're not supposed to get angry in Ramadan
supposed to keep keep calm and worship Allah subhanaw taala and collect the rewards
to make any
the time of Iftar you're most likely will be accepted. Yes. Yes, it is good time to make dua. Yeah, it is good time. And here in this place in this place. We decided to make Iftar for those for single brothers for the students. For people who don't have singles. It's clear
And, or anyone who cannot make it is difficult for them to make it to home or something. So they are welcome to come here to have Iftar with us on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays every week, three days and the last 10 days of Ramadan. Maybe in the other place every day eight and eight. Are you planning to do it every day brother sorry, they were in eighth and eighth. Yes, every day. So in eighth and eighth they are more generous there. And they will be doing it every night for because they have more students there I think in downtown and single people who live in downtown. So there is an excuse for that. So they will be doing it every night. Inshallah, here in this location. We
don't need donations for Iftar Hamdulillah we have enough money we're not going to collect money for nothing. We have enough money for Iftar for this year in this place. I don't know but the other place people are signing up there. The other location eight and eight. I think they are signing up. People donating the whole night. Like the whole Iftar sponsoring the whole Iftar for everyone. But here in this place. We don't need donations we're gonna do fundraising for the organization, the organization need money they need we need money every year we need around 120 1000 between two locations. So the first fundraising we'll do it here. The coming Joomla July 4 After Joomla we stop
like five minutes before and then we do fundraising in both humans. And we do the second fundraising in this place during the last 10 days of Ramadan in this place and the other place same thing, but for this year. We don't need money donations for Iftar am right in a bill
he's welcome when he told me we don't need money
for next year no people want to donate for this year next year. We don't know what will happen next year. So we have enough money for this year hamdulillah people will be happy tell them we have enough money we
should say Zach Kula hair Hanukkah longer happening shadow Allah Allah Allah Furukawa
