it's extremely important for all of us now with all what is happening that we do not forget the focus
that's all Milan is still Ramadan and our Milan is still the month that we all wait for every year and that's the month that brings with it as a guest a lot of goodness and we need to still focus on this and let us not let shavon have us
move away from the focus simply because there is no Masjid simply because there is no taraweeh in the masjid. I cannot have a bar with the usual people I am used to. It's sad. I will say I'm not going to be honest if I will say this is not sad. It's very sad actually. But as Muslims that will last pantalla tortoise Samia Anna wattana Samia Anna What? wattana woman acid Houdini women Esslemont Raja hula. Allah said it sorted Baccarat what what he wants from us is semia. Now what I know we hear and we obey. And Allah Subhana Allah also said that inshallah to Nisa woman Asad Adina, who has better
religion, who practice better other than the one who submit to the will of Allah. And I think before I go with you over some of the things inshallah we will learn together I think we all have to say this to ourselves that Allah pantalla and Hakeem, Allah is the wise for his wisdom. For a wisdom he has, he made it this way this year. He made it very different. We have never seen I don't think anyone hearing me, living in this day and age have seen our Milan that there is no tawaf that there is no Amara that there is no tarawih and there is no masajid Subhanallah but Alhamdulillah the Ramadan is still there, the blessings in it is still there, the fasting is still there. All of these
are still there. Let's focus on the positive. Let's feel how we would have felt, if Allah subhanho wa Taala for his for a reason. Even though Milan will not come, how we would have felt, let alone
Let alone how the people
that the people who passed away will feel and if they they can see us and we can communicate with them how happy they will be that we are alive. And we are still can fast and can do all the good deeds and as I have shared with you in the last two weeks that how many things we still can do with the Ramadan although there is no Tarawera in the masjid. So I want to start by this by focusing on each one of us. Each one of us going to tell ourselves, this is going to be in sha Allah, your ob I mean the best Ramadan ever. And it is going to be normal, no difference. no different from last year or Milan only different is the place that I used to go to the masjid for Tarawa, I am going to do it
in my home today, whether this year whether alone or whether with my family, and maybe Allah subhanho wa Taala want us to feel the beauty of being one to one with Allah, or only two or three, and we still have the resolve. We still have the energy, we still have the power to stand up in front of him and read and we are especially if you are the person who is doing the taraweeh alone or leading some of the sisters that you are the Imam How does that feel? It's a completely different experience. Let's look at it as a
very positive experience and your law make it even better than what we want it to be. You're behind me. And I'm going to start with you with the Sahaba. The Sahaba used to always, always six months before Ramadan, ask Allah Subhana Allah the companion, your Allah make us live till we get to Ramadan. And six months after that they make a dua that your Allah make us, make us or accept from us what we have done in Ramadan. Let's start here. We have five, six days, Allah knows how much let's keep asking Allah let's not take it for granted. Allah knows if we will be alive or not. But in sha Allah, Allah is Allah Karim. Allah is generous. If I make the intention right now that I am
going to do my best to make this best Ramadan ever. If Allah decide to take me back to him tomorrow, he will reward me with this because I really made the intention. And I really want to do it. So number one, let's keep the momentum let's keep the DA let's keep asking Allah subhanho wa Taala keep asking last pantalla to give us life till we get to Ramadan. And let's Allah subhanho wa Taala make make us that first day of Ramadan is good. But then this the second date is even better. The third day is even better. Let's make the last day of Ramadan is absolutely even better. I have some slides for you. So I will try and short like if I can to share with you some of the information we're going
to go into number one is like the basics. And then as we go, I'll come to you in the common I want to cover the most common questions we have. Usually when we get in Ramallah so the first thing is the they the Sahaba used to ask Allah Subhana Allah your lawmakers lift alarm Allah so that's number one. Number two, and we're going to go through with this more today inshallah we I want you to all and myself included, what does really fasting you mean? What does it mean? When I say I am fasting? I'm not talking yet about islamically we're gonna come to it. In general you sit in front of you. Basically, the the act of fasting is the act of holding.
If you want to use a term, we use very common these days. It's an act of control.
You are under you, you are the one where I am We are the one who have the control. Not people, not my own nefs not shavonne. I have the control and this is why the name fasting. RCN is actually to abstain from something and to stay still. That's why it is used Allah pantalla used it for a Seder Maryam when she said when she got pregnant, and Allah ordered her to cooling in in order to LA Rahmani Salma. Tell them I have made an oath to Allah, I'm going to be fasting. Fallen Okay, Lima Yama. In sia, I am not going to be talking to anybody that's fasting, withholding, abstaining from talk. Also it is used for the wind, it is used for the sun, it's used for the horse when the horse
Run, run, run and suddenly stop doesn't want to move. They say so much. I'll hide. The horses are in a state of fasting in islamically islamically. And I love this definition and I put it both in Arabic and in English. What do you see? You see him saquon muscles v semonin muscles beshara le must also you withhold certain thing in a certain time with a certain condition. That's that's fasting, in general, in Ramadan or outside, you withhold abstain from and we'll come to it and you have it in front of you food and drink and marital relationship from to a certain time. Sunrise, I'm sorry, Dawn to a dust sunset and with certain condition and we're going to come to the soup. I want to keep
us remembering that fasting is control. I am under control. I am control. I'm sorry, I am in control. I am in control. But the real control is formalised pantalla because I am in control of not eating or drinking from let's say 5am to 8pm but who told me that time and who changed as the month goes on?
So number one, and this, keep reminding yourself, you are Ally's teaching you and me to take control of our desires and our what we want, we always have to get it. No. And he's also teaching me to take control and submit to the one who has the control. We fast in general, either obligation like Chrome avant extra voluntary, like we do Monday, Thursdays, three days of the month, we do they have our offer, if we are not an homage, we do the days of chabanne the middle of the month. So it's obligate voluntary exercise, then we do atonement fasting, we fast to the cafaro, because we have sinned certain sins. And then one of the ways to remove these sins is actually by fasting, one of the ones
familiar to people is actually the oath, when we make an oath, and we cannot keep it there is many ways to make this up, to remove the sin of not making keeping the oath, one of them is fasting, and there is forbidden fasting, I cannot fast and we'll come to that. But in general, they fade when the woman is menstruating, or when they were or when after she has delivered the baby. Fasting of Ramadan is is an obligation. There is no why. And if and but it's one of the five pillars of Islam, and not fasting intentionally is a major sin.
I'm sort of talking about for those who can, so I need to look at it. And this is not only me, everyone around to me, we're gonna put it under non optional. Yanni and I love it when sometimes you ask people and I really like that. When sometimes you ask people sometimes you're teasing them says What do you be fasting Ramadan? They look at you.
I was like, What do you think of me? Of course, I'm going to be fasting Alhamdulillah that's how it should be. We should never say if I can, unless I have the the permission, sickness or other but I'm talking about healthy, regular people look at it as it is an amazing guest and honorable guest. bringing with it amazing gifts, precious gifts, and the gifts are given for those who honor it. Honor, aroma 100 lack of blasphemy. Where did this come from? Who said the Ramadan we have to fast we all know it. But it's always very good to keep reminding ourselves when that time of the act of worship comes in. Especially if it comes every year like Ramadan or Hajj, we need to remind
ourselves again, why? Who said so somebody let's say we will live in a non Muslim country and people around you and these days. For those of us who goes to work people will ask you and hamdulillah you will be so happy and less surprised that people are familiar with Ramadan al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen so why it is an obligation It is one of the pillars of the it's in the Quran, I'll come to that. It's in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. He did it. And he said to do it. And it's the consensus the agreement of all scholars, no scholar, reputable scholar, old and recent will come and tell you Ramadan is not an obligation. If he or she say that, then they really are not
saying the right thing. Then also it is one of the pillars of the Islam. One of the five pillars of Islam, and it is one of the acts that we all know the they call it in our ob alamelu movie diva bar or it's something every Muslim know that they fast Ramadan, and this is the verse and in case you want to use it to your job. You can memorize it. Yeah yo holla Deena amanu all you who attain faith quotevalet ko Muslim. Fasting is an obligation upon you, as it is an obligation upon the people before you as it is an obligation for the people. Before you La La Quinta taco week, gonna try and chat a lot today. Talk right for ourselves notes and the notes we will take it with us in Ramallah,
the notes you can put it in your heart, you can put it on your phone, you can put it on your fridge, do it the way you want. But we need to look into these to remind ourselves number one La La Come on. So you will be a lot conscious. This is the main reason the main message
From Ramadan is La La Quinta takuan yo la give me to what I have no idea what this word mean I don't know how I am going to do it your love Teach me your la Teach me and look at the next verse I love it a Yemen Maha do dat it's counted days and I remember this what I am going to say I remember what I will be saying right now.
The day one of Ramadan we say oh it's 30 days you blink your eyes and it is the last 10 days you blink you blink another eye and then Ramadan is gone. And that's why Allah says a yaman module that it's counted a young module that for men can have in committee one Oh Allah so fully fade the tournament a young man Oh Ha. The person who is sick or was traveling will come to this later. Now come to this one. Show her all Ramadan lady on zero fee on the month of Ramadan, the month where does the Ramadan came from the name? It's in the Quran, and I'll come to you as we go. Where is What does the word mean? So we can look into the spiritual part of Ramadan. So shadow Ravana levy one
zero fee here, Cora. So look at the virtue. It's the month. It's Ramadan, is the month that Allah chose from all the 12 months to send his words for the first time in zona de la tierra.
We send it down in the night of the power and the night of the power in normal VOD, that's how the scholars all unanimously agreed that night of the other the night of the power is actually in Ramadan because Allah said we send the Koran in the night of power and Allah said we send the Quran down in Ramadan we send the twins only nasci or the United mean alhuda Well for one Why did Allah send the Quran to guide us to teach me to make me sing things clear and to teach me right from wrong for odd right from wrong. Now comes the order Thurman shade me comitia Hara Valley Assam
whomsoever live to see the month
fat Leah some then they need to fast That's an order in the Arabic Language Fellow. It's an add a verb and that comes in with the meaning of order do it and then Allah gives the the exceptions and finish it was took me to
finish the 30 days or 20 days 29 days when he took a beer Allahu Allah Maha. So you will always glorify Allah for the near ama he gave us this is another thing I want everyone to feel when lights in him.
It's a blessing that Allah subhanaw taala sent us a month that will bring us much easier closer to him. Help us much easier to do things pleases Him Alhamdulillah Allah to can be Allah Allah Maha come glorify Allah, that he for what he guided your guided us while Allah can touch Quran and Sue so you may be grateful to Allah, grateful to Allah, look at it. It's an obligation. Yes, but what an obligation. What a beauty. A guest Think of it this way the day that you will hear the announcement that it is tomorrow is Ramadan, live with the fact that you are opening the door and the most beloved guests that you are you were waiting for for the whole year. Finally, the foot is in your
home. How you will feel this is how I need to feel I need to look at it waiting. Finally is it here is it here and then hamdulillah and I am alive and it is here in the sooner arasu alayhi salatu was Salam He fasted nine Ramadan nine years and this is also his teaching and I love this hadith and this is where the obligation offer Milan came. the obligation of Ramadan came from the Sunnah also, and this is a man about doing came to the Swati site or said I'm not very well dressed not very clean. Actually. He was described that his his His hair was not very done well. Not clean. And he says you're a sole law. Bernie mother for a long while I am NASA telling me what Allah made
compulsory upon me from Salah, and he said the five unless you volunteer and you will do more. And he said, What about what did he make obligatory upon me from fasting.
What is obligatory upon me from fasting, he said Ramadan unless you want to do more, and then he asked her what zacchara he explained it
To him again, which is charity unless you do more. Look what the man said. But one one lie. Yeah. Also me Mafalda. Allahu Allah Shia. No, he said, by the one who send you now Bedouins is like the tough people because they live in the desert, and they live harsher life, you know, to this strong and and, and they say the way it is, as we say, and he said by the one who have honored you, I am not going to do anything extra law Takahashi. I'm not gonna do anything voluntary.
However, I'm not gonna do anything less than what he ordered me. I am not going to do anything less from what he made obligatory on me. And I am not going to do anything extra. Otto Swati Sato Salaam said a flat inside, he will be successful. If he was truthful. Or another narration he will get to gender, he will get to gender. So here you are. It's an obligation. If I am a person who normally does not fast,
a lot outside or I don't fast outside Ramadan. It's from one little Milan to the other. Regardless of the reason, this is a good news for you, because he said to him, I am not going to do anything extra. But I'm not going to do less from what he wanted me and Rasul Allah salatu salam said, if he is successful, if he does that, he's successful. That's an obligation. And this is another Hadith amin in the slides I have all the sources also. This Islam, this beautiful religion, this home of Islam, built on five, one year Islam Allah humps, five things you bear witness Allah is
only DT Rasul Allah salatu salam he says messenger you perform surah and you
it zeca and you do you give zakah and also more Ramadan will beat five things
you will witness there is no God but Allah and Muhammad Ali Hassan are to send out his messenger platform Salah yo gives a car, if you're qualify, you perform new fast Ramadan again, if you can, and then you go to Hajj that's in Muslim, that's if I move one out, the house will sooner or later will fall. That's the obligation. Why do we fast?
Why do we fast? And I love number one, there is a reason I put it number one and we need to all I say this always to myself, when any one asked us Why do you do this something in Islam that Allah want us to do? The answer is Allah said so
Allah said so and then he will show me the reasons he but I don't it's part of
stay away from this argument. Why? Why did he do that? Why did you want me to do that? That's lack of a ticket with Allah. I did it because the one who gave me everything the one who created me the one who still gives me the ones who is very merciful with me said so
basically I fast Ramadan because I want to obey Him. And number two, it is a mean to purify the soul test here to enough's because the more I am in control, I control my knifes and my desires, it will become much more purified not to everything my neffs want I'll give it and that's what happens in Ramadan in this 16 or 18 hours. I'm hungry, my enough's my soul saying, Please, I need to eat and you say no, it's there for mobile. And I'm thirsty, I need to drink. No, it's the day of Ramadan. Now more I say no to myself, the stronger I am, the more purified I am. So when the temptation comes in to this obey Allah later, I am stronger to say no.
It's mean away or I mean, I mean to attain taqwa, what is the what Allah conscious, and this is a beautiful concept. It teaches me fasting teaches me when I am alone, outside Ramadan, to remember that Allah is watching me, and he's seeing what I am doing. And he is hearing what I am saying. And that's the taqwa that Allah subhanho wa Taala find you where he wants you and does not find you what he doesn't want you. He finds you where he wants you. Time of Salah. He wants to see me I am on my sajida on my Dinah mas I am in Salah.
And he doesn't want to see me doing something else. And he doesn't want to see and an act of disobedience and he see me there. That's taqwa. So fasting getting
easier because what is the reason I am not eating or drinking when I am alone because I know he sees me and I know he watched me. And for 30 days if I can do this, I am short like you're behind me when I leave Ramadan I got to do this. I got to this feeling that Allah is watching me. And fasting in general Teach me less attachment, less attachment. This something may be a little bit funny but look at us these days, especially staying at home and a lot of the things you're hearing from people that are eating way more or having more snacks when eating more because it's available and we have more time fasting and we are still going to be a lot by his wisdom, we're still going to be in lockdown.
And what what but we're not going to be eating less attachment, less attachment to the worldly things and I need to talk to myself another
note. So the first note will be tuck with a second note I'll put to myself as a goal at the end of from a lot less attachment. If I have it Alhamdulillah if I don't have it Alhamdulillah I stayed 16 hours with no food and drink. I can stay with less this or less that and of course the last thing which we all say fasting hunger actually reminds me hunger reminds me of those who cannot find an Subhan Allah in the last few weeks when we when you when I'm sure everybody had this experience when you went to this supermarket and you find the shelves are empty. And then you really need it for example that thing and that thing is not available. What was the feeling. Now look at the feeling if
it was available, but I cannot have it. I can't buy it. I can't I don't have the means. It teaches me It teaches me less attached and makes me feel with the other people who for us handle everything is available and we can buy a lot of people it's either not available or it is available but they cannot have it. I put this hadith because this hadith covered the whole beauty of fasting. If you can just look at this hadith remind yourself of this saying of Swati Santos everyday in Ramadan. So you don't lose the resolve the him. You don't get weaker and tired On the contrary, everyday you will be stronger. And Allah subhanaw taala said Sahaja tokachi Swati salatu salam said Kala xojo
Allah subhanho wa Taala said, every deed of the son of Adam is for him except fasting. It is for Allah, it is for me and I will reward for it. third note, I am fasting for Allah
and he will reward me
on accountant, I have no idea. He didn't say one time stand or one time 70 in knmi, wafaa sabi Runa and wrong variety his job, those who are patient, they will be rewarded unaccounted for. And sobre NCR together being patient and fasting they usually come together. So number one, I have always to remember in the morning when I put my soul and then that's it. I was like you're alive This is for you. What a beauty imagine May Allah subhanaw taala give us this feeling all the time when someone does something special? And then you say why did you do that? And they say I did it for you? What do you feel? How do you feel you feel you're special? And Allah Santana is telling you you're doing it
for me. You're doing it for me now this is a law I and you doing something special for Allah and he taught to me that I didn't he taught me and he said do it. It's for me and I will reward you. Number two a CMO Jonah it's a shield. It's a protection it should protect me. Protect me protect me from shavonne protect me from disobedience protect me from my own knifes and my desires and then don't forget layer one is home Don't say immoral things don't stay away from indecency and immoral and morality in general. Number four, the small cards I'm going to say if someone if someone is gonna try to quarrel with me, or he's gonna say things that is offending to me or he's gonna offend me,
she will offend me. I am going to say in Nisa,
I am fasting. See how the beauty of this the beauty of this ini sign and then he swear by the one who owns his life or Swati saw to a sound the smell of the person was fasting normally
as the day goes by, and we get much drier, and it may have some smell, that smell is more beautiful and more beloved to Allah than the smell of the mosque. And the passing person has two joys, remember this to joy is the joy, the moment of joy when I put that date in my mouth, and I was like, Alhamdulillah because I obey the law Alhamdulillah he gave it to me, I was able to do it. And hamdulillah I had the date and hamdulillah I have something to break my fast. And the second joy is when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's we see this in our books, and he we will be very happy by our fasting. He ought to be I mean,
so it is protection from the Hellfire, it will send me to forgive my forgiveness of my sins, and it is a way to get to me to Jenna and a soul moven your surgeon will be here. I love doing a North Psalm fasting is a shield and the servant of Allah by fasting, you're protecting yourself from the hellfire. Think of it this way.
If you had a fire, right, and the fire let's say whether it's it's a fire in the winter or it's on the stove, and the fire is up and you're trying to protect yourself from the fire. So you look for water or you look for something to protect yourself so you don't get burned. This is fasting for us in the hereafter. It protects me from the hellfire. So I want to have a lot of fasting and a beautiful fasting in my book because it will protect me from the Hellfire a soul mudrunner and, and
fasting is so special to Allah subhanaw taala that he made a special gate agenda for the people who fast fitting genetic damania to BB Jana has eight gates. JOHN has eight gates. And one gate is specifically only the pupil who fast or rayyan the name of it lie at hula hula saw a moon no one will enter through that gate, except those who fast Think of it this way. I this hadith comes to my mind. When Allah Subhana Allah used to bless me and I go in Ramadan to Makkah and it's very busy and crowded and they close this door those of you who have been in Umbra they close that door and they close that door and then they will leave one door only and they and then they that door. As I said
only the people in the front they will enter How do you feel when you're so special? And you enter that door going to the harm of Allah and there is millions people behind you. They couldn't make it.
Fasting in general. The door your life make us enter from the from the Jambi me, Allah Yan Lang tolu illa saw only the people who are fasting
enter it. month of Ramadan is the month of the Koran both will intercede for me and you and me how much we need intercession. Both of them will speak Day of Judgment everything will speak except the tongue the fasting will say your Allah your law Please forgive him. I made him or her not eat or drink and the Koran will say your Allah please intercede for him. I made him not sleep in the night because he or she was really important Ramadan give me both Ramadan give me both because the day of Ramadan is the fast and the night of the Ramadan is the pm and what is the clear Salah with Quran longer with the Quran and I will add to this in general all of us. We are much more attached to the
Quran during Ramadan than outside Ramadan. May Allah correct this in us, but that's reality. So both of them will speak for us. So when you are so tired at five and 6pm and you are getting no more energy, remember this is going to come and talk for me is going to intercede for me. And when you're in the middle of the night 1112 and you're getting so tired, no more energy to stand will lay out like I cannot stand to more Raka let this come to your to your mind and your ear. I'm going to intercede for you stand up, stand up Koran and fasting will intercede for us and whomsoever fast Ramadan out of faith and waiting for his or her reward. Wolfie Raja hamata condom in dombey since
before will be removed expiated Let's make it this way. Let's make it this way. email and YT cyber, full faith and a law. All my energy all my resolve all my
lands, everything I want to do is to please a lot out of faith, and this is his month. And I am also waiting for my reward. And Allah will give it to me because that's what the Hadith is saying.
And also the special part of Ramadan is Laila to
the night of power. We will come to it at the end so Rama, Juan, this is what I want to all of us feel. It's not just a month of fasting. And it's not just fasting. I want us all to move from the ordinary feeling. Oh, it's Ramadan. And then hamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala not by choice. We removed a lot of the distractions we used to have the years before
the social gathering the invitations, the the all the other things this this year, this is why I feel and I asked Allah spawn tada and I'm genuinely saying this, that this shouldn't be the best Ramadan for all of us. Because we're going to practice a lot of things we haven't done it to before. We're going to taste the beauty of praying turabian our home reading or our leading people and I've never done it even even if you are not the best in reading Quran but you are struggling for Allah. That's why he man and what the Sabbath. So Ramadan, the day is the first the Quran than the break of the fast that supplication that you are the Salah, the night prayers, your Allah one after the
other. All of it is full of blessings Subhanallah
two pillars, two things. Now we're going to come quickly I'm not going to go in details into the fifth. But the most important thing that the common questions also I get two things only I need for Ramadan intention and refrain stay away, hold on not eating or drinking or having sexual intercourse during the day. intention is the night before. If you start Ramadan by saying from day one, your alarm my intention is to fast the whole Ramadan that will suffice. But I recommend and I always say is like the fact you're taking more than this is your intention. You don't have to say it, but you had the intention in it needs this. And of course refraining intention and why intention, this deem
the beauty of it one, there is so many beauties. But one of the beauty of it is that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not judge us like we judge people Subhana Allah, we judge people on what we see, or what they say, or what they look, Allah doesn't. out of his mercy. Allah judges what we have here
what we have here
intention, intention, and the Hadith. Number one let's put the area and this is inshallah to in vain. They were not ordered to worship Allah, but with sincerity. intention is sincerity only for Allah. I am fasting only for Allah and not fasting, because everybody else is fasting. I am not fasting because it's Ramadan. Of course I have to fast Yes, but I'm fasting because Allah told me and I have to fast with I have to say, this is my intention, let alone Of course I'm not fasting to lose weight, or any of the dunya reasons. I am fasting because Allah told me to do that. And I have to do this intention. And this is probably I will call it the most famous Hadith. That's all the
books, whether it's the book of faith, the books of Hadith, this usually comes in as the first the first chapter, the first Hadith, because everything else, depend on this hadith narrated by Satan. Omar enamul. Mr. Lubin, yet worldly, worldly, worldly. actions are judged. actions are judged by actions are judged by intention meaning, the correctness of the correctness of the action, the correctness of action will be judged by the intention and the reward will be judged by the intention by the intention in animal animal orbignya Why did I do it? Why did I do it? This this is extremely important so I am fasting fasting. It absolutely needs my Nia the night before you can do it every
night or you can do one year for the whole Ramadan. What I will need or what will actually not what will
any negate my fast if I do or what should I abstain from three things
no food, no drink and no marital relation that's it to our can two pillars. Salah has much more pillars for correctness fasting is only two you need your intention and you need to stay away from these three in that special time not anytime that special type that special time handler we all have the calendar so from dawn to dusk, from dawn to dusk and we have the calendar you go by jungla all the massages they have it you have it on your phones al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and always and I'm going to touch on it this quickly it's usually recommended to delay your support but also don't delay till the end that it may be too close to your time of insect the time to withhold give
yourself a little bit time so in case there is an your your clock is not on your watch is not accurate. You're on the safe side. So from dawn to dusk.

real federal that's the time they put for us right it's still dark but that's the year if I did want it to start what cooler was Ramu had to eat and drink till you know that time too much in Muslim Adelaide then hold on keep your fast till the night meaning them so I'm I'm giving you also where this all come from so we all learn because we this Deen is based on evidence Yanni in medicine, we all say what does the
the the study say? And what's the authenticity of this study? So here you are. That's unless pantalla seeing it and he's seeing it in the Quran and is giving me even the type hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and this is also a hadith of Rasul Allah salatu salam, and he used to say kulu, wash Ramu eat and drink till the son of Omi Maktoum call for Salah, the son of a Mcdo Satan.
So, eat and drink till this little, this is how we know is still fragile till the sun have only mark to call for the
for Salah, because he because he says Fair enough, fair enough lie you had to apply for a job, he does not call for Salah unless it is time if it is done. So this is also an evidence from the sooner why we do it this way. why we do it from this time to this time.
And this is another one or Swati salatu salam is alchemilla laywoman Hakuna, when the night come from this side, while hora bottisham spot of parasite and if the person who is fasting when the night comes in from this side, he was showing him and the sunset than the person who is fasting can now eat, who should fast this is simple basics.
The person has to be Muslim. I don't
able to fast, healthy, not sick, not a traveler and right state of mind and not in a state of menstruation or after the after having a baby Muslim number one, the non Muslims who may or may Allah guide them all your obeah mean, who does the faster thought with us, may Allah reward them. But this is not the fastest form of art. That Allah would reward them you're a B I mean, they will give them a here because they are. They are they're doing good deeds to make us feel good. But in general, the obligation you need to tell you need to ask that person who is Muslim adult, meaning dialogue, he or she reached the age of maturity. The for the woman actually she had her period. And
for the boy, he had the changes. If none had happened in general, its age of 1515 years of age, able to fast, able to fast, meaning fasting, healthy, fasting will not make him sick, sick meaning disease or he has a disease, but fasting will not make that disease worse than if fasting makes this disease worse than that person has the concession the permission not to fast traveler, same thing. If I am not a traveler. This is an obligation. If I am a traveler. It's my choice. We'll come to that.
All right state of mind, meaning I am awake and I am not insane the person is not insane they call it in the fucker usually allow kill but I will Muslim all value will happen the Muslim adult and in a state of mind and not in a state of menstruation. Why is that? Because this Hadeeth the person who is sleeping not in a state of mind and the person who is young, not yet adult, and the person who's insane, these three people Allah will not take them accountable. There is no obligation upon them. There is no obligation upon them. These three people sleeping insane, and person who is not an adult.
Come to the menstruation. And humbler Blimey we have done a whole seminar about that more than one one place in general, in general, and I'm going to share this with everyone because I still sometimes hear this.
Why should we? The Why should the woman during her menstruation Why not? She? Why she cannot fast? Why she cannot fast?
The answer number one, which I shared that with you in the beginning. Allah setesdal
done he didn't say it explicitly in the Quran, he said through a Rasul Allah hisako sir, right and this is the Hadith I love this hadith. It has more than one way of saying it it's a man I'm sorry a woman came to see the Asia
right Her name is wider and she said to her
I'm sorry more harder is the helper have a say dies. And she was with her when a woman came to her and asked her at tackle the higher masala without the horrid
the woman during her menstruation, she doesn't pray. So she was asking her after she finishes her menstruation. Should she make up her Salah.
Say Dalmatia, the smartest woman she turned to her? And she said are you are you? How old are you? What is How old are you? how old he is from Hell is a place in Iraq. It's a town in Iraq, where the people live there. They are very famous in being argumentative, just for the sake of argument. So she was asking how are you from that people from that part of the world? You're asking for the sake of argument. And she said no. No, I am not in the other room. She said No, I am not.
And she and then say hi. She said, This is what we did at the time of roswaal in Salatu. Salam we did not pray. And we did not fast when we have the menstruation when we finish. We did not make up the Salah. But we made up the fasting. We made up the fasting can a Muna be called what is song he used to order us to make up the Salah the fasting, but he did not make up ordered us to make up the prayer. If it was allowed for the woman to fast during karma situation. The first woman
would have fast his wives, the mothers of the believers. So absolutely, it is not allowed. So quickly for my beautiful sisters here. So the woman there's a couple of scenarios, which happens. So I have been fasting the woman has fast all day. And then five minutes before maharam. So eight o'clock 755. And the woman got her period that day, she has to break a fast and that day is not counted. She needs to make it up while I fasted 17 hours. That's our last pantalla said that. And she could be having heard my situation the day before for adventure. She was not yet clean, but by law. She was clean. Should she start fasting and that day is counted that day is not counted. Should
she fast? There's different opinion about that to hold in general, scholars will advise the woman that out of a ticket with a loss pantalla don't do it publicly hold some school of thought that she should she should abstain from food and drink but she still has to make it. So menstruation once the woman sees the blood, the fasting is not valid
that day and she makes it up. When does she make it up? This question always comes up and when we come to show while the month after Ramadan, the same question is going to come and is going to say Should I do my six days of chawan and then do my Ramadan. The makeup of Ramadan Should I do my makeup of Ramadan first and then
Makeup chawan this always comes up when should we do it? There is many opinion that is not a one single opinion. I put you the hadith of a Seder is what she used to say.
I sometimes I could not make it up so I delay my making, excuse me making up my fasting. Tell Shaban so all the way till before the next trauma bond Should I make my shot my show well first and then do my Ramadan. Also different opinion scholars will teach you Ramadan making up is an obligation show while fasting is a voluntary always obligation came first. So you should make it up. You should make up your your fast thing that you missed in normal one, then you fast for short. Some scholars will tell you look at the beauty This is different opinions are beautiful, no one is more right than the other. That's a choice. Some scholars will teach us and they say no, the first thing in shall while
the month after Ramadan is a specific time, it six days has to be in that month. So if she has to make up that let's say a woman, her period is 10 days, does her makeup 610 days, and then she makes up that six days, that's 16 days, that may put some difficulty and burden on the woman. So let her do the six days of chawan because this is a specific time. And then she can make it up later what I tell the woman if you can do it both. If you can, with no real hardship on you, or your family do may do the makeup first, and then do the show one. If you cannot then do the SHA one. And sha Allah, Allah will make it easy for you to do the makeup later on in the day pregnant and breastfeeding. I
get this question all the time. Should the pregnant woman fast should the pregnant woman not fast? Should obligation too fast or not obligation too fast. And basically, if there is three scenarios, she's worried about herself, she's worried about herself and the baby. And for the breastfeeding woman is the same thing for herself. The milk or for the baby in general, in general.
The pregnant woman is looked at the same she has the permission, she has the concession like the sick person she has it? Does she have to take it to the answer is no. Should she not take it? The answer is no. It's basically absolutely up to her. This is up to her to make it up on too fast or not too fast. What I tell my patients is hat, try and see if any difficulty now provided I'm sorry, before I say this, provided the pregnancy is absolutely healthy. She is healthy and the pregnancy is healthy. It's not a high risk pregnancy, she can ship no problem. And I will say try. It's long hours. Try it. If during you find any difficulty on you any difficulty on you then take the
permission, Allah in a hadith he said an ally or one ta so Allah loves that we take his permission and concessions, like he likes us to take his obligations. So yes, if you can do it, if you cannot, don't do it, and you'll make it up later, as long as the pregnancy is fine. If you started and then something happened in the pregnancy or you became high risk or it's affecting the baby you are losing weight, then we usually recommend not too fast. The same apply for the woman who's breastfeeding so it's
a depends on your ability and then should actually the woman make it up only should the woman make pay money or make it up and pay money I gave you the for school of her opinion. And that and the Hanafi school make it up only in the Maliki pay money only in the mud and the Shafi they do it both and Allah knows which one
who are allowed not too fast, old age frail, sickness, any kind of those who work long hours and hard work, people who works outside a builder all the time in the sun, long, long hours, somebody let's say a surgeon and he neurosurgeon and they they do like 10 and 12 hours surgery and then they have a very important surgery they cannot be delayed till after Ramadan. I'm just giving you examples. Again we put pregnancy we talked about it. Breastfeeding, we talked about it, and traveler and the
We said this
profession Jihad for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and if someone really get very tired of that day, throwing up severe headache, then you go under the permission of the sick person.
So what are the things that allowed you the state of fasting that will not negate your fasting, swallowing saliva, tasting food, but not excessive tasting food, not excessive smelling perfume and kissing between a husband and a wife, as long as there is no the La Jolla for dinner. This is what they taught us that there is no sexual interaction, because the sexual interaction break the fast completely. But if there is the intimate relation without the sexual interaction, it is allowed in the roswaal esala to assert the reason they put kissing specifically because it is being reported that Saraswati salatu salam during Ramadan, he used to kiss his wives. I put this and I really would
love for everyone to memorize this because these are the common questions, communist questions we get. What does not negate the first eyedrops under the tongue medication virginal cream or medications, vaginal exam, speculum urinary catheter, dental work mouth gargle IV and I m medication as long as they are not a nutritionist. So it's not an IV fluid. It's not an IV fluid. If somebody takes an IV antibiotic it does not break the fast but if I'm putting IV fluid because that's the nutrition or I'm giving injection b 12. That's a nutrition oxygen therapy. general anesthesia itself itself does not break the fast itself. But if they put which is very unlikely that you will get a
general anesthesia without having an IV fluid than the fast is negated because of the IV fluid. Skin creams and ointment cardiac cath if you did not get IV fluid, endoscopy biopsies and unintentional vomiting, unintentional vomiting, all these your fast is fine. Do then I will add to this anything I will always say this to my patients anything that is not necessary. Try to not do it in Ramadan but if I have to do with Al Hamdulillah as they say Alibaba wasa the permission is well wide. This there's a lot of room Alhamdulillah here on lamp we can do that. The commanded actions of fasting, beautify your fast I always say this to myself, everybody, at the last day of Ramadan have already
baked the cake and gave it to Allah presented to Allah pantile The Bay to bake a cake we need to fast from and stay away from the three things food, drink and the relationship. Everybody will do that everyone will bake a cake now we need to present to Allah subhanaw taala beautiful cakes let's compete in this and these are the sunon the extra the extra actions that we beautify our fast.
break the fast Coakley haste to break the fast maybe you are at a time of fasting control the anger manners manners is extremely important. extremely important. You are under control you are controlling your your appetite you're controlling your hunger, you're controlling your thirst you will control your anger you will control your your desire to speak desire to revenge you will control it and Allah will make it so hard A lot of people say I don't do it for hold it's so hard to wake up don't do it because I don't need it. I'm fine. It's not about that. It's beautify your fasting to beautify so hard to eat even if it's a drink of water. If it's a piece of one date, or a
proper to hold whatever Allah opens but do it and your intention remember the near the intention is to beautify my fasting. reading Quran. Ramadan is the month of Quran reading Quran inside Salah reading Quran outside Salah charity Al Hamdulillah Muslims in general hamdulillah lucky but an increase it they are very generous in Ramadan and that's why almost all the fundraisings are in Ramadan. Because people will give will give you say this is Ramadan. So be be generous and our Swati salatu salam was very generous and he Salah to a sinner in Ramadan. He was described that he was more generous than the fast quick wind that comes and brings a lot of hate with it. Kind of Georgina
so he was very, absolutely very generous night prayers at hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen alone and he Tarawa you can do it with your family. And then you do some extra yourself let's say with your family that you cannot do that as long as you are used to in the masjid. hamdulillah do some with your family and then you will do alone. You
Do I don't feel the feeling of you are alone in the Presence of Allah pantile and aitikaf and then this year Subhan Allah Allah decaf is usually in the masjid unless you can do a ticker for in your own masala if you have a special place some scholars will allow this to be done in in the home we were talking about how I'm going to beautify the cake it's a metaphor so I am at the end of Ramadan I am going to give to Allah subhanaw taala have to actually it's every day I lost Montana at the end of the day or at the end of Ramadan is basically taking all my fasting with all the actions I was I did including the fasting including the aura and burning the salah and putting control my anger
being nice charity giving to people so my goal and you will be that's another card we're gonna put I am gonna give to Allah gift to Allah and give to Allah subhanaw taala the best Ramadan the best fasting so I'm going to beautify it to the maximum of my ability now that we have to remember we are human beings, there is ability in me but I am going to make the best of it. You know we all find this that sometimes I can't I can't and then finally and then after it will say also how I was able to do that. I was able to do that. Let's let's give ourselves a bit more this Rama given more from our energy and resolve and feelings to Allah subhanaw taala and beautify the cake. One of the most
beautiful things you do in Ramadan, plus the fasting Koran and night cider is actually a Doha supplication. And this some of the things I did not I'm not going to go in detail in it because the last two Tuesday's classes, we covered more in detail you can always go back to the recordings. It's available on our YouTube channel. It's available on our Facebook also. But here I wanted to remind everybody about a dua supplication thalassa latera do Dawa to home three, their supplication will be granted who they already are locked Sandy Tara Swati salatu salam in LA monitor me the three of them, the fasting person till he or she break the fast that just ruler with our tool modeling that
our tool model, the person who has injustice being done to him or to her and they went when they turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask for his help. And he says that we're truly modeling your for her long focal amount, that supplication of the person that has injustice being done to him or against him or her Allah who lifted up all the way above all the clouds let the door of the heavens all been opened and Allah says will tell him I will give you a victory and one of the best wait for you to remember how dua is granted and law gave us examples in the Quran immediately is one Allah spawn tada said about Satan and when he asked he said a llama in the mother luban Fantasy in sort of
Amara Sedna Noah asked Allah spawn tada and he said, I am I am Muslim in email me mad woman fantasy I am I am I have or an injustice has been done against me Please give me victory. He made that doubt immediately in the Quran. This is a squatter comma, the moon immediately last pantalla says fafner awaba semi Bhima in one hammer. We opened the door of the heavens with rain immediately. So do ha Don't be miser I say this to myself. Don't be miser. Keep asking Allah pantalla keep asking Allah do more do ask for yourself. Ask for your family. Ask for your the people you know, ask for the man asked for this earth. ask Allah especially these days that Allah subhanho wa Taala lift up, lift up
this test in this disease from all of us. And unless pantalla and sha Allah will reward this all one of the most beautiful, beautiful things to do to beautify my fasting The cake is the manners good manners, and specifically and this is interesting when you see special things specifically or a Swati saw to a certain talked about and he said a CR mudrunner. We talked about this before the break fasting is a shield for either kind of a honeycomb saaremaa. If any of you was fasting, follow your foot. Now here comes the manners fella the orifice do not get engaged in sexual activity in appropriate action. And if an aggression was done against him, let him hold it in nice on him.
don't respond don't reciprocate manners control
another card for Ramadan I am not going to say and this Ramadan anything but good if not even the best everything I am going to do your Allah help me that's your Doha everything I'm going to do I'm gonna say this Ramadan I want it to be the best and the most pleasing to Allah and definitely controlling your anger Subhan Allah talking about anger I remember I had
this is years ago and somebody was was it was telling me Oh I know that person is fasting and I was like how do you know they say because when when when they are fasting they I can see how angry they get
and the same in another is another person they say oh, if they are fasting ask them anything you want they will give it to you. Very generous so let's be the second to group let's be the people who are under control if the food didn't turn to be good allama Nissan if the children made me so upset along my Nissan and if work did not want the way it should be Allahumma in Nissan anything happens alone Martin Nissan, y'all Allah I am saw him and I want you to remember what we talked about fasting in the beginning. It's the abstain abstain the control your law, you will help me to be under control. I want to do the best Ramadan ever. So manners, manners, support, why is that? Does
the huddle fair enough is sahadi Baraka
use the whole support for sure has a lot of blessings in it. So even if it was a sip of water, and again, your intention to beautify to follow our Swati Sato Saran to obey Him and that's something Allah loves and will bring BLESSINGS TO MY
fasting sewak is something we all have within the house but we forget essiac and also it has salatu salam used to do it's one of the sooner no fasting is Subhan Allah again last few when I was honey you see it in the harem people always always before the Salah immediately the SWAT comes in and they do it.
And sewak is Matala totally from from a lot more latonia Rob was mattala tondi fancy work is actually something that beautify that it's purify the the mouth but is mainly is something pleasing to Allah let's have this
habit and let's build this habit this Ramadan by doing what by having the stick that the
the sidewalk and let's put it put it next to our surgery next to the place where we are going to be praying and then immediately let's do that and put it back and if it gets dry just you can watch it and you can make it a little bit what but my Nia to beautify I'm going to compete everybody is fasting. So I have to do things extra is all of us phenolic affiliate and APA silly more than happy. So in this let those who wants to compete let them compete in good deeds. So see work, generosity, generosity, and this is what I shared with you a jewel, the nurse or soiree has Salatu was Sinan. He was the most generous and more generous and Ramadan and generosity not only by money What about
people who doesn't have money what they will do generosity in giving anything and giving giving my time giving help teaching people helping people donating supporting, cooking for the others sent to my neighbors be generous, forgiving, pardon control this is all out of your generosity, especially when someone really very aggressive against you. Let's say your children right for some reason whatever they did, they got upset and they said things in appropriate you have the power you can do it. But he's gonna respond in a very nice way. Because my intention is generosity, generosity.
dislike to action disliked action not of not haraam, not forbidden but disliked. Excessive gargling and tasting food excessively known for no need just to taste. A last handle is protecting us. So we don't, we don't go to the moving us away from the border of error and falling into the harem. And also kissing if it if the if the person cannot control what negate fast this is going to do it quickly six things. Six things will make my fast as if I didn't pass I'm only hungry and thirsty. Number one eating and drinking intentionally, not by forgetting intentionally. Relationship
vomiting intentionally, masturbation and in the past we talked about that. If I made the intention I'm gonna break my fast the fast is already done. Even if I didn't eat or drink intention it's extremely important in fasting and if somebody will Aya who rejected snam Subhan Allah May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all, then fasting is not accepted. If somebody forgets to eat to eat or pork for God and you ate,
continue, Allah offered you or Allah gave you the drink what any? What a blessing Subhan Allah subhanaw taala and this is the Hadith or Swati Sato Salaam said, if somebody eats or drinks forget fully, then he should complete he he or she complete their fast for what he has eaten or drank has been given to him by Allah Subhana Allah. So don't panic. Don't say what did I do that save the child? If your son or daughter forget don't panic, don't tell them what did you do Alhamdulillah just say hamdulillah Allah fed you al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
Now, what is the name Ramadan, now we are going to get to the little bit of the inner inner only to talk to our hearts. Now. Where is the name of Milan came in two meanings from Rama, Rama in the Arabic language is the sun when it comes to the maximum heat or the rain when it comes and fall on the ground in a hot day or a MOBA. So son with extra there is an excessive heat or there is rain,
find rain that comes on a hot surface. And this is how the scholars teaches you the in general who called the Torah Milan way before way before Islam they named the months according to the time they fall in. So when the ninth month of the
lunar year, the nine month one they named the months came in the summer so they called it Ramadan called the Ramadan. Now in our meaning of it and I want you to read you have the slide in front of you, the fasting person, feel the heat and the pain of hunger. The hearts during Ramadan, learn the heat of reminders and admonition of the akhirah similar to sand when it gets hot from the sun. Let me explain this to you.
What's usually we do in our Milan? We fast there's a continuous reminder in our mobile continuous reminder of fasting continuous reminder of the Quran, continuous reminder of the meaning of the Quran. When we listen to all we we are reminded it's constantly in Ramadan in Ramadan by the actions on last pantalla put in it that we are we have way more than what we focus on. Continuously reminding us reminding us of our sins. That's why we cry in taraweeh if we used to cry in the masjid, why when the man was reading beautifully, it reminded us especially if you understand why you're so this is me Allah is talking about me. So reminder and the heat off the reminders. Heat off
reminders. Clean me like when the sun comes in knock if you have if you want something to be like you want to sanitize something they say put it in the sun to kill the germs. sarama Juan comes in and kill the germs of sins, kill the germs of disobedience, kill the germs of attachment too much attachment and remind me that there is way more this beautiful thing when I am pure when I'm sanitize spamela the meaning of it and it's born is the sense they say the heat, the excessive heat burn, the sins are on mobile or on mobile.
And when Ramadan comes in the door of giannina are opened and the gates of China is shot. Remember, this is why I put this Why do I need to remember this? We have no excuse not to do good and scholars will teach us what does it mean the gates of Geneva are open. They say that means the opportunity to do a good deed is much more in Ramadan. This is a figure of speech much more that will antigen and even the good deeds we normally do in Ramadan. Because of Ramadan we do it even better. Put your hands up wobbly Jana 40 had a wobble Jana was afraid that and shouting in it. in it. There is later to the power The Night of Power
It's in the last than these last 10 days. And that has had these I'm not going to go in detail because of the time but they say it is the last 10 nights. The last odd nights of the last 10 nights. It is in the last seven nights. A one had you'd say it may be the 27th my request to everybody myself number one, Let it not to be. We focus only on the 27th and then the 28th Ramadan is done. We missed it. number one number two with every year what we go through that this country they start this day and the other countries started this day sometime this is state and that is state. There could be my old night is there
even night and it could be my even night is the odd night.
What we need to do look at the last night of our mobile every night as if it is the night of power later to the Condor, in its in its little cada hieromonk official. It's that night only and these days the nights are short. If you're talking about from eight or 830 till about 5am or maybe by the end of from around 430
better, better than all 1000 a month. That night. These last 10 days I need to empty myself from every distraction you need to buy things order things for the aide cook do everything before the time. You can take time off hamdulillah many people these days almost almost majority are working from home. So you saw a lot of the distractions and the extra time we're used to doing driving and going pay attention and make that the moment and the atmosphere and the house these nights different. So everybody will feel it is different. I'm not going to waste my time in the last time night watching TV watching movie watching this. These are the 10 nights only. I have no idea if I'm
going to live next year and you will obviously we are seeing it around us so panela so take advantage of it ignite of power. The Quran was revealed in it in Tanzania who killed a Latin mobile Raka the Quran was revealed in the night of power What should I do? What should I do to it calf, da do good work good deed and worship. Alternate alternate even if you take a nap because you get tired make the intention of the nap that I need to take some energy Allah so I can worship you take 20 minutes 30 minutes not to give you more energy but do not alternate read the Quran. If you are memorizing review, then I will do some I am some Salah that I'm going to sit down I'm going to make
me some URL then I'm going to read more or on that I am going to do more so now or I will make longer so now look at it as absolutely your opportunity May Allah forgive us but it's like a sale and it is your crush sale. And you people with Christ sale they stand up in line at 6am in the morning. We are going to be standing up for Allah and not for anything for this life. But it is for us hieromonk unofficial for this card. The night often better than 1000 nights and look for it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan you will do all
good and it's actually this is one the scholars usually talk about this. It changes from one year to the other it is not fixed. It change from one year one year and this is the majority of the scholars as you see it. I want to I put this specifically because I want you to remember I said that in the beginning. Fasting is unique because it is for Allah only.
Fasting is unique specifically for Allah you're doing something you are not getting, gaining anything out of it Indonesia, you're doing it for a law and as I always say give Allah the best among you the best and you give a last pantalla in fasting, why it is so special also because usually we are doing things we are doing and and we are leaving things and this both combined in certain fasting We are leaving we're leaving the halaal basically. So Paula staying away from holiday for certain time. And we are doing things doing the extras that reading Quran the night Sora so it's but it bind them
to combine them to fasting is actually half of a sort of half patient and patient is half of the half of fast does being patient fasting teaches you and me how to be patient. How to again, control control. If I always say this to myself, if you can stay 1618 hours with no food and no drink and you're functioning you can control your anger
You can control not having everything you want, you can control your tongue fasting, control, control.
Reality of fasting, I love this, this is my you know,
look at fasting this way. In reality, we are leaving what the neffs enjoy, for the delight of Allah only. That's what fasting, I am leaving that what I like I normally love to have, for example, someone will say I love to have my coffee, and I love to have my breakfast or I have to have my afternoon snack, whatever it is, I'm leaving it for no reason for Allah and for the delight of Allah because he said, fasting is for me.
So that's number one. Number two, it's a secret between you and Allah. It's a bad masasa it's a it's a hidden, no one knows. No one knows, feel it. I'm bringing you these things you may know, but it's different when I know. And when I feel that this is something a secret between me and a line. I remember one of the teachers used always to say, make sure you have a hidden act of worship, specifically between you and Allah pantile. That's my opportunity. It strengthened me. Fasting is absolutely people who fasts regularly, not only in Ramadan, it gives us strength, and it guards the limbs and the heart It gives you strength and absolutely, it's the best way to improve
the best way, the best way to improve my relationship with Allah. And this is a beautiful way also formed scholars, they describing fasting in general, they say it's the Rhine of the people of Dhaka, Legion. Legion, Ryan is when you hold the horse to control it. I say fasting is what control people have done.
And it's the paradise of the Warriors, people who goes for fighting their paradise. People look at fasting as it's my paradise. I'm doing something special. It's very hard. It's very difficult, but it's one last panel with Tyler and it is the exercise and it is the struggle of the pure people that exercise or when it is hard when it's getting difficult when I have the headache, y'all Allah make it easy. Remember, it's the struggle and the exercise of the pure and those who wants to be near to Allah. You want to be near to Allah pantalla fast and make all Ramadan special fasting, and basically it's you leave what the neffs enjoy and the delight for the love of Allah subhanho wa
it's a shield. We said this and has an amazing influence to save God the external senses, not only food and drink.
People, it's usually it's really certainly any. It amazes me when I see people who are heavy smokers. And I right away when I talk with them. I was like Why don't you stop smoking? I can we can't we can't. It's very difficult. I said what do you do in Ramadan? They say oh Ramadan.
We don't helps you. To control helps you to teach. It helps you to stay away. So if you can stay away from the things you love, you're going to gradually stay away from the things you less love or more love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
fasting. The deep reality of fasting is whomsoever This is, I love this Hadeeth millennia the cola Zoo will Amelie be Felisa la harjit infinidat amo Sha, Allah Swati salatu salam said, Who does not give up forged speech, lying and evil, bad deeds, Allah is not in need of his hunger and thirst. What does that mean? When the person does not stay away from lying and evil deed, Allah is not in need in in him or her leaving the food and drink meaning the essence of the fasting there is the Shariah Islamic fasting is I stay away from the three things we talked about. But the essence the reality that I am going to give to Allah that He will reward me and I will compete is that's what he
wants from me to change, to change to get closer to Allah pantalla by doing what he wants, not only stay away from food and drink, but actually stay away from all the disobedience lying, lying, I call it the disease of the of the of the time, disease at the time, everyone lie, shouldn't I am a Muslim Subhanallah sometimes you would say but Muslims lie and I
I said, You know what, it doesn't matter what Muslims does, it's what Allah wants from us. So stay away, put, gauge your actions and put it under the microscope and look at it. There's three levels of fasting. Now I'm getting spiritually, there's three levels of fasting, there's the ordinary, the special, and the special, special, ordinary fasting, everybody will do it, which is the stomach fasting, we're going to stay away from food and drink and the marital relationship, fasting on the special, you and I, your ob, I mean, let's hope and pray and ask Allah to give us this one. This fasting is actually when you stay away from every home, every home, in in speech and actions and
seeing in hearing in everything and you do everything a lot wants you to do so you do all the obligations, and you stay away from all the Haram. So fasting from the Haram that's the special special of the special soul housel hawas May Allah subhanaw taala give it to us, that's when you all your focus throughout the whole Ramadan, throughout the whole fasting is only a law only, you don't focus on anything else, ask Allah these may be very difficult for people but to ask Allah Subhana Allah, he will be able to give you this if I start by doing my first one the ordinary good. And I start gradually moving away from the haoran focusing and doing only the obligations and I'm begging
him to give me this one moment where I am not thinking about anything else but when subpoena I will give their shot law be in the law Neela she basically fasting from other than the right of the nuts, that's the fasting on the special you stay away from I'm gonna cook this cook this because I like it I'm gonna buy that because I like it. I'm fasting from this and fasting from what my enough's once that I am doing the fasting of the special, and I want you to remember this, when you leave something for Allah, Allah will give it back to you better. So when I am going to say, you know what, I love chocolate,
and my end and I have this desire to eat chocolate, or whatever, something that we I can't be without. And I'm going to say I'm going to gradually cut to this throughout Ramadan, and I'm going to stay away from it because I want my fasting to be special on last panel, what Allah will replace what I gave for him something much better, including, I will not need it anymore, or he will give me something much, much better feelings, my relationship with him. So remember, when you say I can do it, remember you're doing it for Allah. And if you leave it when we say I can do without remember when you leave it for Allah, Allah will give you better and better.
The last day of Ramadan, you do not want to be of these people
read this Hadith, you do not want to be of that person, the last day of Ramadan, or swallow his thought was and this hadith is described as our Swati thought or Sinan was in the masjid. And he went up on the main bar. And then he went forth. And he said I mean, and went and secord and send amin and went to the third and said I mean, and this is what he said. And they asked him, What did you say I mean for and he said,

May that person who live to see his parents all age, and he did not get to gender through serving them, may he be humiliated and roswaal as Auto Salon said me, so three things he said I mean, he basically people, these three criteria, people will be humiliated if the rasuna name and he saw it or Saddam was mentioned and we did not say it his thought was set on Ramadan comes and leave and our sins are not forgiven. And then our parents are getting older and we did not get into gentlemen because of them. We will be humiliated. We do not want to be of these people, especially as Ramadan is coming. And I want to

Was that person recently related Tora Milan and Corona and then I will translate to you. In summary, fasting is one of the great, greatest act of worship. It's one of the best actions we do to get closer to Allah. It is actually the path of all the righteous people. It's eight is the banner. For those who have Taqwa. It's purify the knifes. It's purify the neffs. And it
improve the manners. It's a school. Look at this one. Fasting is a school. The name of the school is called School of taqwa and school of guidance, whomsoever, enter in it with a pure intention, and following the right path, meaning how Allah and Allah Swati sought to set up he taught me he will graduate with the degree and the name of the degree called LST. m, stat fasting, and he or she was from those who were to be saved in this life and the hereafter your obeah me and let me show it live it will work.

Does that come along here on May Allah Subhana Allah accept from all of us may Allah subhana wa tada accept from all of us may Allah Subhana Allah make us live to get to Ramadan May Allah subhanaw taala and he's capable there's still five days left me he will respond to our supplication to remove all this
pandemic and this virus and makes our massages open. And if he does not wanted for wisdom he has made he makes our homes masajid and Let's all have what Allah subhanaw taala asked Sayed nimasa to do and he said, Well hi nyla musawah he and
and it Ducky the live komikko mommy Miss roboute Allah said I revealed to lose on his brother make build homes to you and to your to your people in Egypt. What Janu Qibla and make your homes public mosques. Maybe that's what Allah Spano tala wants from us, may Allah accept from us, May Allah forgives our shortcomings me. And last point I'll make is the best ever. Ramadan, we all had your biani I have couple of questions. while brushing your teeth break your fast The answer is no.
brushing the teeth does not break the fast It's not food. If you are worried you can do the work and you will be fine. But in general, the answer is no.
Is it permissible to sleep until 2pm? while fasting if you Were up all night in a bed and only slept after fudger?
Very good question. What Allah wants from me is to worship Him. And the first thing he wants from me is to do the obligation. obligations means so now on time 2pm, I missed my son out on time.
So after fudger, and then I missed my daughter, the most
beloved son told us what he thought was to them after the obligations. So what should I do? I was up all night, then I sleep after fudger, I wake up about 11 1130 I will do my Baja, then I will wait till
I'll do my Volvo with all my subnets and everything, and I take another nap afterwards divided, but do not miss your obligation on time. Remember what we want to give a loved one our time.
Then other question is, can we reward children with money or treats when they fast as long as we also remind them that the fast is for a law and not the material reward. That's a tough one. You don't want always to connect a bad with material things because we lose the essence of it. But also you want to encourage them. So I will say today, how about Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you, Allah subhanaw taala will send you something and then you bring him something material. And you say Allah send this to you because you fasted yesterday. So I wouldn't say it's in the beginning. If you fast, I will buy you, then you made that material, but I will do it at the end.
You can say I will, if you can try and fast. I'm going to ask Allah subhanaw taala to send you the best thing you want. Tell me what you want. ask Allah what you want and tell me and I will make dua for you. Let's say he wanted something and at the end of the month, you will give it to him or her but don't make it only because then we will we don't want in our act of Warships to make it as material things
and inshallah this for a special needs 10 years old, is it permissible to allow him to fast shorter days at first and increase the length of the fasting time in order to help him adjust? Or must he fast the whole day? Is he I need more information? Is he available? Is he the age of fasting one is he happened? Is he in his state of mind? special need not mentally? That's too Is he healthy? Is he healthy? Can he do it? So if all the above is the answer is yes, he needs to fast but if he's special need and fasting is difficult for him, then it may go under the category of that person have a chronic disease and the person who have a chronic disease they usually atone by giving money every
day. Can I memorize data from the Quran if I am in doubt of being on my period if you are memorizing it is
for the reason of dua not Quran itself The answer is yes but don't read it from the Quran itself although some people you're getting into the different opinion Some may tell you and also what I will recommend is you know what if you read it as a draw, you can automate change it a little bit four for example Robin alatus kulu bonobo in her data say Allah hamara burner and then it did not become exactly the Quran. Should I recite as much Quran as possible or recite less but with meaning and reflection? Very good question.
The sooner let's look at the sun Ramadan is the month of Quran one of the names of from Milan is the month of Quran the month of light the mind of God month of guidance, many meanings
The sooner of roswaal is to Asana he actually did reviewed the Quran in total with satana jabril once once only except the last year before he passed away I listened to a sinner he reviewed it with Jabra twice so the sooner is once so what I will do I will say my knee is I want to follow the sun I will be rewarded for that. So I will make it we call a Tata I will read read it once in the end reading one chapter per day reading one chapter but per day just read it read it, it will take you 2030 minutes and then I can say I'm gonna put the rest of the time I am allocating to the Quran to understand and choose one or two or three surah it depends on your ability, but definitely try to do
one customer one customer at least finish it the whole to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu a sinner should I focus on completing the Quran Ramadan or on him if I am unable to do both the same answer the same answer is the sooner is you need to read go over the Quran once and then with the extra do your health if you can do both Alhamdulillah is it permissible to diffuse essential oils during the hour of fasting? I think I answered this in the slide. If you remember that I said skin creams and that's including the oil it is fine if you're not eating it. It's not something nutrition. Can I prepare myself alone withholding almost half the Quran to recite longer portion of
the Quran? The answer is yes. However, however, reading from the most half during Tarawa Yes, absolutely we can what I recommend so we can focus more put a stand in front of you. If you don't have a stand I don't know what I'm going to go out and buy it get a table it's like if the table is up like not too low so you can read you may put some books and put the Quran on on top of it on top of it and fixed and then read the one page in every rakah so when you get up from your sujood you flip the page if you do it this way, one page per Rocha you will you will finish the chapter of the Quran in 20 rocard the the chapter of the Quran Jews as we say it is 20 roughly usually it's about
20 pages is it permissible to bathe while fasting? Yes Take a shower Absolutely. But remember, don't do too much gardening because you may accessible gardening with water you may swallow it can we read from the Masai during Suna and water the same answer The answer is yes. But again you can hold it but sometimes holding it it's a distraction Where will I put it when I go for Roku? So maybe it is better to get a fixed place? Can we recite the Quran without wudu? If we are revising the answer in most of the scholar The answer is touching the Quran you need Waldo reciting there is different opinion better to be all the time and will do. Well this will be the last question in sha Allah will
we get the same reward for listening to the Koran as we would afford reciting? reciting the Quran is the best reciting the Quran loud and seeing because you're losing more than one one cents so you're reading and you're reciting listening you also will get the reward but the more you use of your senses the more reward you will get this atom Allahu Allah May Allah reward everybody Subhana Allah Hmong behind the cache to Allah Allah Allah and stuff we look forward to buddhic Don't forget to pray for all of us, myself. Number one, everybody pray for the earth. Pray Allah pantalla lift this test and this pandemic, May Allah give recovery, speedy recovery to everyone who is sick, may Allah
Subhana Allah have mercy on all those who passed away. May Allah spandana ended soon and bring us out of this test and experience much better and much stronger. Desert Malawi Ron said mid Kumara Mittal, Lahore Bearcat.
