The importance of "naught" in culture of the UK is discussed, with anyone who wants to pray as many times as possible. Any afraid of failure to pray at least one raka, even if they are not already praying, is fine. The church's program for praying inder-stage is meant to increase productivity and success, and anyone who missed a prayer at the last third should finish their Witter before going to bed. The importance of praying behind the scenes and focusing on details of their prayer is emphasized.

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

oh man

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


00:00:48--> 00:01:09

I saw Molly calm and a very warm welcome to the philosophy of fasting Bismillah Mundo heme, oh handle that rubella mean. All praise is due to Allah, peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, the last prophet and messenger of Allah. As always, it's my great pleasure to have in the studio, Dr. athermal al dad. Salam aleikum. Dr. Lee, consider.

00:01:11--> 00:01:39

Thanks so much for joining us in the studio today. Well, Doctor, you know, we've taken our time to discuss a lot of things. And I want to take this time today to discuss the night prayer. What does Terry actually stand for at night? Okay, Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah taraweeh is the name of the night prayer that is done during Ramadan, follow, stop as simple as this. Okay, so taraweeh is a night prayer.

00:01:41--> 00:02:21

But because at the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and in fact after the time of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam the time of Mr. When Mr. Radi Allahu Allah and who guided people to pray together behind obey you minicab who used to have a very good re citation, right? They used to pray for rock out for like and in between, they used to sit and relax this this process of relaxation called taraweeh. Okay taraweeh means relaxing. So, so then there were Tada. We became like, you know, a symbol for the night prayer during Ramadan.

00:02:22--> 00:02:32

So, as simple as this. So Tarawih prayer is a night prayer and it stands for night prayer. And it is sunnah. Because,

00:02:33--> 00:02:39

as we said before, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever observes

00:02:40--> 00:03:07

prayer, at night or night prayer during the month of Ramadan, he will have all his sins wiped out. So it is an eye prayer in Ramadan, that insha Allah once we do it, we will get the virtue of prayer at night, during the month of Ramadan. Subhanallah Tai Chi, it's amazing to find out the significance of this. So how many records do we actually pray for this terrible prayer?

00:03:09--> 00:03:34

First of all, we have to say that we have to remember that taraweeh prayer, as we just said, is just a night prayer. Right and the night prayer, we need to pray out tonight as much as we can, generally speaking, and any ruling that is applied on night prayer should be applied on Tarot because they are the same. And you know,

00:03:35--> 00:04:16

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once said to one of the companions who asked him about prayer itni the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said it twice or twice, pray to Allah to like, and if you are afraid of the first time then conclude it by one raka which is the winter rasa. And on the other side, it shall be Allah Tala and her said that the prophets Allah wa salam used to pray tonight and he never exceeded either 11 raka in one narration in the other narration, he never exceeded 13 Raka. Okay, so, this Court has said that

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

it is

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

solid, solid, a little prayer tonight has no limitation. Why because of Hadith, the normal the first Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam address the sahabi who asked him that you can pray TWICE, TWICE, TWICE. And if you are afraid of failure, then pray one rock I'll conclude your prayer by one Raka and they said that how did the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam known that it is not allowed for the person to pray more than 10 raka are more than a truck out or more than 11 like our more than 13 raka the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam would have told the companion

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

pray as much as you can provide that you do not exceed 13 Raka, or you do not exceed 11 Raka. But the fact that the prophets why Selim left it open, despite him sallallahu alayhi wasallam never exceeded 13 It means that

00:05:18--> 00:05:41

you can pray as many as you can. The Prophet SAW Selim himself he prayed 13 Vika or he prayed 11 raka This is what the prophesy Selim prayed himself because he used to pray a for a long period of time. You know, in Hadith and ibis, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he prayed tonight,

00:05:43--> 00:06:34

our Hadith Abdullah bin Massoud when he prayed when the prophesy said and prayed at night, he prayed he recited Surah Al Baqarah. And then Surah Al Imran and then surely he prayed. He recited Surah Al Baqarah, then Surah Nisa, all in one locker, which is you can say five judo in one locker. Yes, five user in Wanaka. So the prophets are seldom used to spend long time in the citation. And that's why the protocol or I said I'm had minimum number of blackout, yes. But it doesn't mean that we cannot exceed this number. And this is the opinion of all the scholars that we can pray as much as we can Subhanallah the number is not a problem. We should not make it a problem. I know the West, or in

00:06:34--> 00:07:17

some other countries as well. Some people make it a problem. They fight over the number of records, we should not find that the matter is far easier than causing any kind of fitna. Exactly. The main point is the prayer that should draw us closer to Allah to Allah, Allah. That is the main thing. That's totally true. Dr. One thing I was just going to pick up on there, when you were saying people always say, we should pray this many records, we should pray this many record and you just simply told us, it doesn't matter. So don't get in an argument over there. SubhanAllah. It's an you know, the next question that I want to move on to is do we actually pray in congregation or not?

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

Yes, this is a good question. For

00:07:22--> 00:08:16

Tara, we in particular, we are allowed to pray in congregation in JAMA, do it in JAMA. Now some scholars said that it is sunnah to do it in JAMA, some scholars said it is allowed. Some other scholars said what is better for the person, she should do it right. So if he finds it difficult to pray by himself, then it is good for himself to pray in congregation, because he might not pray by himself, if he can pray by himself, and it is more spiritual for him, you know, to pray by himself and he feels the salah more and he enjoys the salah more and and it increases his Eman more than it would be better for him to pray by himself. You know,

00:08:18--> 00:08:32

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself prayed to Allah and led the people in taraweeh prayer, although at that time it was not known as taraweeh prayer. As we said that the Prophet SAW Selim used to observe the young lady

00:08:33--> 00:09:26

in general, and in particular, of course in Ramadan, and even with more emphasis during the last 10 days of Ramadan. It was reported in Sahih, Bukhari and Muslim shall be allowed to other and has said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or sorry it was reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed and deleted a prayer one night, two nights, three nights. And then on the fourth night, in the fourth night, he was about to come to lead the taraweeh or the night prayer. And then the companions. God gathered together to follow the prophets Allah SLM to join the salah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and every time their number increased, okay, every time the

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

number increases in the first time, they had this number, then the people who started to talk so more people came the third night more people to came until the masjid is about to fall. So to be fooled, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did not leave to lead the salah. And then the Sahaba asked him, ya rasool Allah, we were waiting for you to pray. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If I I was afraid to come to lead you for this Salah and then it will become a

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

obligatory upon you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, he did not intend or he did not want that the night prayer, the taraweeh prayer becomes obligated upon us. That's why he did not continue leading the prayer. Subhanallah So, originally speaking, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed in congregation, right. And he allowed the companions to pray in congregation behind him more over, you know, on top of the alotta and in the very famous incident, he entered the masjid once and he saw the Companions praying here and there just individually or by themselves or two, three people praying together. Then amount of known hubbub around the Allah Allah and who said, If we gather them

00:10:51--> 00:11:04

together, all of them behind an imam that would be better. Yes. So he gathered them all behind the car, they obey your vocab, he used to have a very good day citation. So

00:11:05--> 00:11:38

the next day, I went to the masjid and he saw obey, leading the salah. And he was very happy. And he said, Oh, this is a very good new idea. Or a bit about linguistics. Yes. So they took off from this, that prayer or praying taraweeh home congregation is allowed because it is a it has been done by the prophets, Allah Salam. Also it has been done by Omar bin al Khattab who was the second Caliph.

00:11:39--> 00:12:20

And you know, the second Caliph. He was a pious person and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Follow my sunnah and the Sunnah of who have the Rightly Guided caliphs. So because of this, we can confirm that we can pray to Allah we and congregation, no problem at all. But in the hadith of amagno, Hapa would have the Allah to Allah and who he said, Well, Letty and Mona and her have been, so he was happy to see the Companions praying together, behind, obey ImmunoCAP. But he said, the prayer that they

00:12:21--> 00:13:09

the prayer that they don't the prayer that they don't pray at the last part of the night, okay, it's better than this. I say, I say okay, the prayer that they don't pray at the last part of night is better than this. And from this Ibn Taymiyyah took the opinion that if the person can pray by himself, and especially if he can pray at the last part of the night, and he will have more who his Eman will increase more, definitely, it will be better for him even if he prays by himself himself. However, if he finds it difficult, or he might miss it, etcetera, or he doesn't know much Quran, or for whatever reason, then it would be better to pray behind the Imam Subhan Allah thank you so much

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

for that, Doctor. That's all we have time for right now. In this part. Stay tuned. We just going to take a quick break. I Salam Alaikum welcome. Ramadan.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23


00:13:24--> 00:13:25

Oh, my

00:13:26--> 00:13:27


00:13:30--> 00:13:30


00:13:32--> 00:13:33

Oh, my

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


00:13:36--> 00:14:22

Salaam Alaikum. And a very warm welcome back to the philosophy of fasting. Well, as you know, we took some time before the break to talk with the doctor regarding the night prayer, which is called tarawih. Doctor, I want to ask you some important questions to get through to the viewers because although this program is for the viewers at home, it's enlighten myself. And I want to take this time to ask Doctor, you know, if the Imam prayed just for example, eight raka could I pray 10 If I wanted to, what's the rule in there? Yeah. Allah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Yeah, this question is an extension of the number of recart Yes, we need to prayer definitely pray. Although this

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

program is not meant to discuss filthy issues. But we said in the beginning, it is good to mix between the philosophy of fasting and the ruling. So let's have a divorce between both of them totally. And people learn almost everything about fasting Ramadan, and the virtues of other activities that we can do during the month of Ramadan. In answering this question, the person is allowed to pray as much as he can and he is allowed to pray even once he leaves the Imam right. So for example, if the

00:15:00--> 00:15:28

Imam praise 11 blocker, and you want to extend that you want to pray more than that. It is absolutely fine. It is not a problem at all. In fact, to be honest with you, we advise people to follow the Imam to follow the Imam until the Imam completes his salah. And then if they want to increase the can increase, you know the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in one of the Hadith when he

00:15:29--> 00:16:23

wanted when he led the prayer, and the Sahaba prayed behind him, until one time they said, y'all rasool Allah, Allah wanna filter back in Laila. It would be better or why didn't you pray for the rest of the night? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them that the one who prays with the email the one who joins the Imam, yes, and he prays with him until the Imam leaves the prayer means until the Imam completes the prayer, and then the person leaves it will be recorded for him as if he has completed one whole night of prayer. Mashallah, okay. So from this this girl has said that it wants their person joins the Imam and prays with him and does not leave behind before the Imam

00:16:23--> 00:17:13

leaves then it will be considered for him one complete night of prayer. So we advise people to follow the Imam until the Imam ends the salah if a person wants to add more. Yes, of course he can add more how to add more. You know, the Imam ends his Salah by Witter. Yeah, and this is the Sunnah is to end your Salah by Witter, as we mentioned in Hadith and Omar, that the prophesy seldom said prayed TWICE, TWICE, TWICE. And then if you are afraid of failure, then end your Salah by all the numbers. Yes. So it is sunnah to pray to finish your Salah or to end your Salah by praying one raka so if the Imam ended his Salah by praying wonderworker or three raka together, then what you can do

00:17:13--> 00:18:12

is stand up before giving salam stand up and pray another raka so it will become an even number. I see. So if the Imam ended his Salah by one locker, you don't to do taslim you stand up and you do another locker. So it will be to recap for you. What is the benefit of this? The benefit of this is that you can pray the odd raka at the end of your prayer. Yeah, and you can end your prayer by order Raka and ending prayer by order by order number one or three is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Definitely, so this is the way to increase or to add more salah or more raka after the Imam excellent doctor, though you may have answered this question. Let's just round it up. How

00:18:12--> 00:19:05

do you actually perform the target prayer? When does it start and how did you and Okay, two things. First of all, what is the best for the taraweeh prayer? Generally speaking, the best time for night prayer is the last part of the night for those people who can yes wake up at night. But and that's why it should have the Allah Allah Allah has said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam performed Witter in all parts of the night and the last winter he did was in the last part of the night. So the last feature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam used to take place at the night, the last part of the night, okay, and the from this, and the other nations. When the Prophet SAW I sent him a

00:19:05--> 00:20:00

you know, an IDW horror thriller that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, that Allah, Allah descends to the Lord heaven, every last part of the night, right, every in the last part of every night, and he would say, many Adoni, who is making dua, I will fulfill his dua, who is asking me anything, I will give it to him who is making so far I will forgive him. So, because that takes place, the last part of the night, so they said it is better to have your prayer to that last part, right. And also, you know, they mentioned that Allah Allah Allah Allah says, Can or kalila Mina Lady Maya, Joan Wahby, as highly homiest.

00:20:00--> 00:20:58

cellphone bill as hard as hard is what is the last third of the night? This is so hard. And also, you know, that Allah Allah Allah Allah said Wamena Layli Fattah had JDB he Nafi Latin. They said the word tahajjud B, and tahajjud means after you sleep, you wake up for night prayer. So waking up normally takes place in the last part of the night. That's why it is better to have your prayer tonight as the last part or the last third of the night. However, if the person can't to do this, for whatever reason, he can pray and finish his Witter before he got to bed. And you know, Hadith Ebihara Allah when he said that my family and my close companion who is the Prophet sallallahu

00:20:58--> 00:21:19

Sallam advised me to do three things, and one of them is to make Witter before going to bed. But generally speaking, as we said, the last part of the night is the best time to pray. Definitely. Now, this is generally speaking, however, when once we talk about Terra, we're

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

most of the masajid they do it immediately after Aisha Yes. Okay.

00:21:27--> 00:21:57

shows they missed the last part of the night. And that's why you know, the hadith of Omar Al Khattab that we just mentioned, when the Prophet Salam when Omar himself said that this is good, this is a good idea. But the prayer that you miss, at the last third of the night is better for you. Okay, you remember this? This? Yes, this means that the taraweeh prayer,

00:21:59--> 00:22:54

it would be better if it was done at the last part of the night. Yes, but if that is possible, that is better. If that is not possible, then the person if he feels that he can fulfill what Bob said, by waking up at night, and doing the same prayer or doing night prayer at the middle of the night or at the last third of the night, then that is good. Otherwise he can join telawi In the beginning of the day, once they finish the Asia Press Yes, okay. And of course, as we said, that Salah to lay Namath now this is the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so if the person can the Torah we should be prayed to raka make the psyllium Tula can make the psyllium Tula can make teslim

00:22:54--> 00:23:38

and so on. Yes, definitely. Doctor, though, let me just ask you a quick question very quickly. Why is it then the mosques throughout you know, the West and here and the eastern world? Pray straight after the prayer issue? Totally. Why is this if it shouldn't be prayed in the third part of the night? Well, this is what we are saying it seems that because it is difficult for people to wake up at the last part of the night, okay. And they just want people to say as many people as they can yes, okay, pray immediately after Asia. That's fine inshallah is not a problem inshallah. But a person can do as you said, he can join the Imam and pray to Allah we with the Imam Yes, finishes

00:23:38--> 00:23:57

with the Imam and then he can stand up to make make it odd. Yes, the number or sorry make it even the number should be even and then he can go to bed or whatever. And then the last part of the night, he can make his own clear mandate.

00:23:59--> 00:24:47

This is of course, we recommended this. Yes. Why? In particular, in the month of Ramadan because of the virtues that we just mentioned, regarding a night prayer during the month of Ramadan, very quickly, doctor, we are pushed for time here. I just want to say what should we say? What prayer should we say when making Tari? You mean what which Quran? What? Recite Yeah, which sewers? See, and Tara we it is advisable to finish the Quran just for people to hear the Quran. Yes. However, this is just an advice people should not rush as we see them now. Right really quickly, quickly, quickly, and people do not understand what the Imam is resulting This is wrong. We have to make it clear that

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

this is wrong. Yes, we need to finish the Quran. But if we are going to finish the Quran on the expense of respecting the Quran, of understanding what we are read

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

And then we should go for what? For reading Quran is slowly in order to lead to the Quran touches our hearts and if affect our iman and benefit from the Quran. Definitely, Doctor, I totally agree with that. You should never rush when doing these prayers. Thank you so much for joining us today in the studio, Dr. Mercola. That's all we have time for right now. Well, the view is, I guess today the important lessons we have learned from Dr. Latham is not to rush the prayer and always seek knowledge. Inshallah, I'll leave you in the care of Allah. Until next time Assalamu alaikum welcome.

00:25:43--> 00:25:44


00:25:45--> 00:25:46

Oh my

00:25:47--> 00:25:48
