Assalamualaikum and a very warm welcome to the philosophy of fasting Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. All praise is due to Allah, peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, the less Prophet and Messenger of Allah. As always, it's my ultimate pleasure to welcome in the studio, Dr. athermal Dad, I Salaam Alaikum, dilute constellar

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

thanks so much for joining us in the studio.

00:01:14--> 00:01:40

Doctor, we're taking some time to discover in the last 10 days of Ramadan, the attic calf and the Quran on the rulings. And we mentioned last time the attic calf basically as dedication to remind yourselves of the Oneness of Allah. So let's find out a bit today about the rulings of the Attika Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah RT Kapha as we said, is a sunnah

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

a very highly recommended to another the Prophet salallahu Salam used to observe during the last 10 days of Ramadan, last 10 days of Ramadan, they started from

00:01:55--> 00:01:59

the 20th of Ramadan on Mother's Day, right. So

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

the on 20th

00:02:04--> 00:03:06

The night of the 20th Okay, in fact, according to the hedgehog way, the Islamic way, the night that follows the 20th is the 21st of Ramadan. Okay, so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to enter into a decaf status before the melody on the 20th of Ramadan right means what this means what this means that the first tonight it will be the night that follows the 20th of Ramadan, which will be the first day or the first night of the first day of a decaf, which is the 21st of Ramadan, right. So this is the beginning of the anti calf period at calf ends after the person praise Eid day at the end of the last 10 days of Ramadan, because the Prophet salallahu Salam

00:03:07--> 00:03:29

used to remain in his empty calf until he prays eat once he prays eat he leaves, he leaves the masjid so it means that he left the decaf, okay and decaf is over. Or if we can say that the person prays Folgers on the last day of Ramadan

00:03:30--> 00:04:28

on the last night of Ramadan, that tonight will be the Saudi. He continues the person continues for Attica until the last day of Ramadan. The last day of Ramadan will be followed by the night of their eat. So if he according to the other narration, if the person prays malady, and eat is announced, so this will be his last day of decaf, or at least, this will be the last point of article for him. And there were some nations where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam used to finish at Cafe at that point, although it is advisable to finish decaf at once you pray that Eid salah but technically speaking, the 10 days or the nine days of Ramadan, the last nine days of Ramadan are the

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

last 10 days of Ramadan finish by Maghrib of the last day of Ramadan. So once they announced aid once they announced that tomorrow is the first day of Chawan is the ie the day, then the person can finish his decaf. The ethical is over for him martial law talks about them you mentioned in a previous episode. I think it was last episode that okay, Mohamed salah. Some said it was valuable for

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

The woman also is wives did the attic calf so let's spend a bit of time thinking about what the woman how does the one perform? See, we have to be careful. The Prophet SAW Selim did not advise women to make Attica the prophesy. Selim allowed them right. He did not advise them, he allowed them to make a ticker. So that is fine in sha Allah, that human can do a decaf and as we say that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did decaf with him sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa Sahbihi Okay, yeah, so,

00:05:37--> 00:06:23

women and by the way as we are talking about this, in the West, we receive this question frequently that oh chef, I want to do decaf at home sisters asked this question I want to do at Cafe at home we say no at Cafe at home, right, decaf, decaf should be in the masjid to be dedicated for a brother in the masjid. So, this is the timing for the article you entered the article off just before the mothership of 20th of Ramadan right and you finish your at curve on the last day or after the majority of the last day of Ramadan and if you remain until eight that will be also advisable okay. Now,

00:06:25--> 00:06:55

the the during this period the person has to remain in the masjid the person has to remain in the masjid and he should not leave the masjid except for necessity right or maybe extreme need Okay. Such as if the masjid does not have facilities for the person to for example, have a shower and he needs to have a shower okay or the person the masjid does not have facilities for the person to eat food

00:06:56--> 00:07:19

Okay, although most of the massages provide this, but anyway, if yes, we these are just examples of course or the person for example, his he left his family and no one to take care of his family. So, in this case, the person is allowed to leave to provide for his family or to buy things for his family.

00:07:20--> 00:08:10

Things like this, they said that the person in anti cough should not go and visit sick people right, unless there is something extreme ly exceedingly important for that person to visit this sick person understand other than that, he should not go and visit sick people he should not go and attend janazah as what he just be, he need to be focusing on a bad right that includes reading Quran includes making vicar of Allah, Allah Allah includes reflecting upon his life, his previous life, making yourself out of his sins, looking for the future, pondering upon the creation of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, the signs of Allah, Allah, Allah, all of these types of Ibaadat are considered

00:08:10--> 00:08:21

to be a badass that need to be done during Attica, definitely see there is a common mistake that men some people do when they do kick off.

00:08:22--> 00:09:13

They think that while you are in a teacup, you can go around and hang around with people or move in the masjid. And when people do at Cafe in a big masjid, they just move it from one corner to another corner. And they think that as far as you do not go beyond the boundaries of the masjid, then you're at cafes. Okay, I definitely agree. We say yes. At erotica is okay. But the purpose of takeoff is what? To have little bit seclusion. Yes. And to dedicate yourself for a bad night, highly advisable for the person to stay in a place in particular place in the masjid. And to not to move around the whole message. That's, that's correct. Talk to them. I want to join in that conversation here.

00:09:13--> 00:09:57

Because when I was in the UK, and I was observing this, I was saying, Why are these people sipping in the mosque? I didn't know at that time. And they explained to me, and when I looked what they were doing, it was like a social event. They were drinking tea together having you know, they weren't overly laughing but they were enjoying themselves. You know, Allah doesn't refrain us from enjoying ourselves. However, you've just explained to us, we should seclude ourselves and this is a time of reflection. Yes, this is the men as you say this is not this is not prohibited to enjoy ourselves. But our main purpose is what the main purpose is to focus on in on a badass definitely,

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

in fact, the purpose the spirit of

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

With article, that philosophy of the article is to keep away from your family, from your other relatives, from your friends from materialistic life, from social aspects of your life during these 10 days, and just focus on your Ibadah inside the masjid definitely it's definitely true their doctor because, you know, it made me feel to myself, look, these people are dedicating the time to Allah. However, they're not dedicating it in the correct way. They're, they're wasting their own time. By you know, bringing like, for example, the telephone, the Gameboy, the laptop with them. What is the point that you could stop at home and do this? Yes. So we have to be clear about the

00:10:51--> 00:11:38

ultimate form of LT definitely the purpose of Article however, if the person, for example has his laptop, or his mobile phone and he's using it, moderately, yes, then it's It's Okay, aunty, in any Ibadah people differ. There are people who get the maximum of the data. And people who do not get anything out of the evader, and in between people differ. And that's why we have to be careful when we address people. We don't want to put them off. But we would like to sell them that this is the best form of anti Catholic doesn't mean that your teacup will not be valid. If you if you use your laptop or computer or something like this. Definitely I understand. So Doctor, what message can we

00:11:38--> 00:12:20

give to the viewers if they they are intending? Okay, if it's too late for them now to do attic calf, what can they do for next year? How can they prepare themselves for next year? This is a good point. This is a very good point. And that's why we said always plan. Yes plan for your month ahead. Definitely. And that's why the Sahaba used to ask Allah, Allah Allah six months before of Ramadan, that they witnessed the month of Ramadan. This is a kind of preparation of what you want to do during the month of Russia law. Well, thank you so much for that doctor. That's all we have time for right now in this part. Stay tuned we're just going to take a quick break Assalamu alaikum welcome

00:12:24--> 00:12:25


00:12:26--> 00:12:27

Oh my

00:12:28--> 00:12:29


00:12:32--> 00:12:33


00:12:34--> 00:12:35

Oh my

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


00:12:38--> 00:12:43

Assalamualaikum and a very warm welcome back to the philosophy of fasting.

00:12:44--> 00:13:30

Salam Dr. Alikum salam ala. So before the break doctor, were talking about Attica and all the rulings and finding out you know, some excellent information. Certainly it enlightened my heart and hopefully inshallah liked and lightened the viewers heart to tone. I want to you know, quickly ask you some quick questions and pick up on where we left off. Before the break doctor about ethical for you. We're at a point about saying, you know, the importance of ethics and what it's all about. Yeah, Smilla salat wa salam, ala Rasulillah. Just to summarize what we have mentioned, the main purpose of an article is to dedicate yourself for a bad day during the last 10 days of Ramadan. This

00:13:30--> 00:14:01

is the main purpose Yes. And that can happen if the person dedicate himself in a single place in the mosque, the mosque cannot just move around everywhere he can move, but the main thing you see stay in a single place in the mosque and just to minimize the social interaction with people I totally understand and I agree with that. However, Dr. Would it not be fair to say you know, one of the questions we could ask Could we not perform Attica just for one day?

00:14:03--> 00:14:51

Now salat wa salam ala Rasulillah as true some scholars did agree that you can do a ticket for one day and they differ on the minimum amount of decaf or the minimum period of Attica right Some scholars say that the minimum period is one day some other scholars say that even one minute is considered to be a teacup. Say the matter is flexible. But we are saying that if you go into the masjid for one minute or four or five minutes, of course you are intending to stay in the masjid Of course, call it a tick off not to call it a tick off. It's not an issue. Okay. It doesn't mean that by calling it decaf, it means that you are doing the Sunnah, right okay. But this one is to do it

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

for 10 days. And it can be done for one day or two days or something like this because

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

I have no habit of the lockdown and who came to the prophets, Allah, Allah and he said him and he said that he had an oath or another to make a decaf during the time of Jehovah. He made that oath. So the prophets of the he made an oath to make an article for one day, right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, oficina Derek, fulfill the oath that you have taken upon yourself. So one day or two days or three days, some people might not be able to do full 10 days, they can do for one day, two days, three girls, and would it be preferable than if they were forming that if they had the intention to perform it for one day or two days at the beginning? Or could they start off in

00:15:42--> 00:16:31

like the last four days or something like this? It doesn't matter. It just doesn't matter. Same person enters the empty cup. The best form is to enter the decaf as we said before Maverick definitely 20th of Ramadan. And then if you had the intention to complete it, but it happened that the person could not complete it for whatever reason, yes, then that's all right. Inshallah, by the way, that you know, some sisters do ask this question that they would like to do a takeoff and there is a good place in the masjid to do T calf but they are afraid to see the ministration period right yes domains. So, we say you go for the article if in the beginning of Ramadan on the 20th before

00:16:31--> 00:16:35

Mallory continue your teacup once you see the period

00:16:36--> 00:16:53

then you have to leave the masjid yes I understand you will have to leave the masjid and some some sisters I do remember receiving this question services I said but the place we are doing T calf in is not a masjid. So we can stay in it

00:16:54--> 00:17:13

while we have the manipulation period and we say this contradicts the nature of Attica because you have to do an article in a masjid Of course. So if you classify that as a masjid, then you are not allowed to stay in the masjid while you are in your minister ation period.

00:17:14--> 00:17:52

So when the sister has her period, then she should leave the masjid immediately to whatever Attica for whatever period she's spending the Masjid Al Hamdulillah they're hungry. Hamdulillah you know, Dr. H. Sophie, you know, shocking to hear that you know, you've had a such a question put to you by sister saying but it's not a mosque we sleep and what the ultimate place that you should do. Which brings me to my next question is should you perform Attica in a mosque in Saudi for example, Mecca or cut kilometer form? And any mosque? Yes.

00:17:54--> 00:18:45

First of all, I would like to re emphasize the point that I have mentioned before that women should do T calf or the only way for them to do a T calf or the only place for them to do a tickle is in the masjid. Yes, definitely. This question that we receive frequently from sisters in there was that they want to do a tickle in their home. Yes, that is not classified as a teacup. And they refer to Miriam when she said in in adultery of mine Solomon fell in Ocala familia in Syria, and she stayed in a certain place. This is the this is not a decal for from a Sharia perspective. This is not ethical for from Sharia expected perspective, what is known as a teacup is the article that the

00:18:45--> 00:19:05

Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself did, his companions did, his wife did, which is in the masjid. Now the other point which you mentioned, can we do attic F and any mosque in the world or it should be in a specific, yes mosque or specific mosques.

00:19:06--> 00:19:50

It is true that there is a Hadith that there is a no attic F except in the three mosques, which is Masjid makup on Masjid Al haram. And the masjid of the Prophet SAW Selim in Medina and Al Aqsa, but this hadith many scholars have discussion about its authenticity, right. And that's why most the vast majority of scholars believe that as far as the masjid is classified as domestic, whereby the five daily prayers are established, then, that is a place for a ticket. Why the five daily prayers have to be established in the masjid because the person first of all in order to classify that place as a mystery. Secondly,

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

the person who is doing a ticket for the place, if they do not have jump in that place, then they have to leave

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

Will another Masjid in order to pray Yamaha to handy leaving the masjid a frequently. This breaks the ticker, it goes against the spirit and the philosophy of Attica. Yes, it totally goes against what you know, Attica is all about exactly. It's quite strange to have some questions like this put to shake. Forgive me if I asked some naive questions however, it's very interesting for myself. So for example, if the brother was doing a decaf, could his wife visit him in the mosque? How does this work? Yes, the his wife can visit him in the mosque, his relatives can visit him, especially the close relatives like the wife if he wants to, for example, if he wants to provide food with her, for

00:20:46--> 00:21:12

him, if he wants to talk to her about important issues, and something like this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to receive some of his wives during the time of a teacup. But of course, no intimacy. Of course, yes, should be no intimacy whatsoever. And if it happened, that the person went home, for example, to provide something for his family,

00:21:14--> 00:21:40

and had intimacy have full sexual relationship with his family, this breaks his article off, right, his article has been broken and he has to start all over again. That's why the person has to be careful. Definitely. So it's good advice. You know, generally, to keep it fresh, keep it like, you know, visit, just say a Salam Alikum and that's it. Yeah, just

00:21:41--> 00:22:06

very simple. And no, no much of socialization. Exactly. Okay. Because again, as we said, that the purpose of a RT calf is to what is to dedicate yourself for a battle. And you know, as we are approaching the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and we said that at calf is to be witnessed during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

00:22:07--> 00:23:07

The, the main, the the most important part of a bladder during those 10 Nights is to what is to witness and seek Laila to other Yes, so that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he was doing a RT cough in order to what in order to seek les little other seeking Laila to other means, he will match later to other while he was doing a bad napped while he was doing something else. So so this the this paints the picture of a RT calf, and Leila Takada and why T calf is legislated to be in the last 10 days of Ramadan, and Ramadan, and the spirit behind it. Of course, Dr. Again, you know, it's amazing that we have such questions from Muslims, that are strong Muslims

00:23:07--> 00:23:56

and they have a strong belief and then the asking such questions, why is it not the they don't already know the answer? Why is it the form a different type of policy in particular with Attica, people always look at the physical aspects of any action, they don't focus on. You can say as we are talking about philosophy of fasting, the philosophy of it, although maybe philosophy is a word that might not be understood carefully, by by many people. The spirit of it, yes, the wisdom behind it, the reason the reason behind it, they just look at the technicalities, and they ignore talking about the spirit. The reason, the wisdom behind it, that is the main reason definitely yes. Doctor, okay,

00:23:56--> 00:24:41

then. So if if, you know, we had Muslim brothers, they wanted to do a decaf together. So for example, we had the father, the uncle, their brother, they saw and do a ticket. But as you mentioned, this is a good point. Yes. Many people as you said in the beginning, they go for their ticket for social reasons. Yes. Or maybe they don't have a place to stay. So they stay in the masjid. Whatever the intention is, the main thing is to dedicate yourself for a brother during those 10 days. Exactly. So, Doctor, what message can we give to the viewers at home? On the Okay, we've mentioned that there's no specific reward mentioned in the Quran by Allah but I want to Allah, but

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

what can we say to encourage the brothers and sisters that want to do this for next time that this is an action that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam never left? The Prophet SAW Selim did himself every year after he started to do it.

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

In the first time, so if the prophesized alum did it every year then it is likely that it is or it is something very advisable that we do and observe for sure. So basically what we're saying here doctor is, as long as the masjid established with the five prayers a day, it the we can perform at a cafe in this Masjid. Yes. And this is the key, this is the year requirement for Attica. And the other key requirement for the article is to not to leave the masjid not to have sexual relationship during Of course I'm off the article, whether the man with his wife or the wife to do it, if she's doing the article have to do it with her husband. Exactly. Well, I guess it will. We'll leave on

00:25:47--> 00:25:59

that note. Doctor, thank you so much for joining us in the studio today. Desikan locker. Well, thanks for watching. Until next time, I'll leave you in the safe care of Allah assalamu Alikum welcome

00:26:03--> 00:26:03


00:26:05--> 00:26:06

Oh, man.
