Roughly, you saw the WASC. Italy, Emily Hello localidad Middle East, Africa who coli, a mother had a Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:52--> 00:00:58

hamdulillah in the last session, we completed our explanation of

00:00:59--> 00:01:06

the book, how can you control the nature of fasting by *hole Islam even tinier? And

00:01:08--> 00:01:26

as we, as we saw, the book was basically covered, everything related to that which breaks the fast the rulings pertaining to that, which breaks the fast, what breaks fast and what does not.

00:01:27--> 00:01:37

And I had mentioned that insha, Allah hota Allah in, in today's session, we will go through

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

a contemporary work

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

along the same subject of that, which breaks the fast.

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

And so we have,

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

before us

00:01:54--> 00:02:08

a book entitled contemporary medical related things that invalidate the fast, contemporary medical related things that invalidate that break the fast.

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

And this book was

00:02:12--> 00:02:17

It was basically taken from the lessons of Sheikh Khalid Sheikh

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

who is one of the senior students of Sheikh had been retaining

00:02:26--> 00:02:27


00:02:30--> 00:02:31


00:02:33--> 00:02:34

the surely compiled,

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

you know, everything related to contemporary things that break the fast

00:02:43--> 00:02:44


00:02:45--> 00:03:10

identifying what breaks are fast and what does not. And so that is, as we will see, he basically mentioned the common things that are out there, that people ask about, especially in you know, those who are ill, and those who are in hospitals, with the various gadgets and instruments and different things going into their body coming out of their body.

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

They ask, you know, is my festival valid?

00:03:16--> 00:03:17


00:03:18--> 00:03:22

this is a very small short book that I translated

00:03:23--> 00:03:30

last year. And for those of you who want access to the book, you can find it online.

00:03:32--> 00:03:45

If you just go to my website or just searching Google contemporary medical related matters, that invalidate the fast by sheer Khalid Ibn Ali Al Michelle.

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

So, the show he starts

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

He starts by mentioning

00:04:00--> 00:04:03

that which the you the scholars unanimously agreed upon

00:04:04--> 00:04:08

that break the fast as they've been Tamia mentioned four things, eating drinking,

00:04:11--> 00:04:17

sexual intercourse, and menstruation or postnatal bleeding for women.

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

And so, this includes eating, eating includes

00:04:25--> 00:04:43

eating and drinking actually, it includes any kind of oral administration of any kind of medication. So, whether it is something that is capable of being chewed or is directly swallowed

00:04:45--> 00:04:51

and so that includes pills, tablets, capsules, syrups anything that is basically

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


00:04:54--> 00:05:00

through the mouth and being administered orally. this will this will

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

break the fast. And so here we don't look at is this something that is nourishing? Does it provide nourishment to the body or not? We don't ask,

00:05:13--> 00:05:25

you know, is it something providing nourishment or not simply the fact that it is being taken orally. And when his swallowing it and ends up in the stomach, this breaks the fast, this breaks the fast

00:05:30--> 00:05:42

after that, and he mentions the evidences for that which breaks the first the ayah, insert Al Baqarah. And then the Hadith regarding mentors for women. And then after that, you get into the subject of,

00:05:43--> 00:05:51

of discussion. And so what he does is he starts to mention one by one contemporary modern day

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

medical related things.

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

In no particular order, he doesn't mention them in any particular order.

00:06:03--> 00:06:35

And so he just mentioned them one by one, also without mentioning, without putting them in the order of like, you know, these are things that break the fast. And then later on, he mentioned that thing that the things that don't break the fast, no, there is no particular order. And so let us look at each one of these things, we will go through them quickly in sha Allah so that we can cover everything that he mentions, or at least most of that which he mentions. So the first thing that he mentioned, the first thing that the sheriff mentions are asthma, inhalers,

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

asthma puffs, that

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

those who have asthma they have to take.

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

And so the theory basically says

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

that these inhalers, these puffs, do not break the fast, they do not invalidate the fast.

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

And so the reason for that he mentioned

00:07:02--> 00:07:09

the reason for that is that this is no different to rinsing your mouth.

00:07:11--> 00:07:16

And so when we, when we perform Lulu, and we're fasting, we're raising our mouth. And

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

it's inevitable, it's inevitable that

00:07:22--> 00:07:32

some drops will get mixed with your saliva at some drops of the water that you rinse your mouth with, it will mix it with your saliva, and He will swallow it.

00:07:36--> 00:07:51

But these amounts of these amount of drops of water are insignificant, they're so small and insignificant that it does not, it does not affect our fast. So he says likewise, these puffs

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

are the same.

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

When the asthma patient, he takes his inhaler,

00:08:00--> 00:08:06

you have a drops going into his mouth.

00:08:07--> 00:08:08


00:08:09--> 00:08:12

these drops basically

00:08:15--> 00:08:25

go into his lungs, they are meant to go into the lungs. And so even if even if we were to say that there are

00:08:26--> 00:08:35

hundreds of drops, tiny drops that are entering into the mouth, where are they going? They are being inhaled and going into

00:08:36--> 00:08:48

and going into the lungs and not the stomach. Likewise, if a person was in, in a steam room, or you know he was outside, and there's a lot of fog

00:08:49--> 00:08:52

and steam, and he inhales that

00:08:53--> 00:08:59

most of it is going into his lungs and not into his stomach. So this is why the shelf says that it does not

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

it does not break the fast and he mentioned other

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

reasons as well. And then after that, moving on

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

the second point, the second thing that he mentioned are

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

supplemental oxygen,

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

supplemental oxygen

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

and so

00:09:25--> 00:09:35

when it comes to oxygen, ventilators, especially nowadays everyone has heard about the need for these oxygen tanks. Where

00:09:37--> 00:09:44

you know COVID patients have trouble breathing. And so they need this oxygen mask we say first of all, first of all

00:09:46--> 00:09:53

COVID patient who is in such a state will not be fasting to begin with. He will not be fasting to begin with.

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

If he is at that level of you know

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

of illness work

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

He is, you know, being admitted to the hospital and whatnot, he wouldn't be fasting to begin with, he is exempted from fasting. But let's say somebody else who ends up having shortness of breath. And let's say it's towards the end of the day, and he wants to, he wants to continue fasting, he doesn't want to miss that day. But he has to take this oxygen. And so, the shell, he says that there are two kinds of devices.

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

One is

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

a device that provides oxygen

00:10:42--> 00:10:56

without adding any substance to it, without adding any artificial substance like a liquid substance to it, he says this does not invalidate the fast if it's only oxygen without any liquid substance, then it does not

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

break the fast. But if it provides oxygen with this liquid substance that is meant to moisten

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

the the oxygen so that it's you know, inhaled easily,

00:11:15--> 00:11:26

then as long as it is not reaching the stomach, then it does not break the fast if it only reaches the lungs. And so this is what the chef mentioned. So either way,

00:11:28--> 00:11:42

it does not break the mass. However, if a person ends up swallowing it and you don't, you can feel that he's swallowing liquid and is going to the stomach. Then here, the chef says it breaks fast. Here, it breaks the fast.

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

The third thing that the sheriff mentions

00:11:53--> 00:12:08

are certain tablets, certain tablets, sublingual tablets, they're known as sublingual tablets. These tablets are basically supposed to be placed under the tongue.

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

And they're usually used by heart patients.

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

And so,

00:12:21--> 00:12:31

they place it under their tongue and then it dissolves it dissolves immediately and then the remnants are transferred via the blood. So it goes into

00:12:32--> 00:12:41

the veins and it goes into the blood flow to the heart. And so, this is meant to halt a sudden heart attack.

00:12:43--> 00:12:56

And so, the sharks as you using these tablets does not invalidate the fast it does not break the fast why because none of it enters the stomach, none of it enters the stomach rather it is dissolved in the mouth.

00:12:57--> 00:13:03

However, he says that if if the person feels that he is swallowing

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

you know some some of this

00:13:08--> 00:13:15

the remnants of this tablet and it goes into the stomach, then it does break the fast then it does break the fast.

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

The next issue that assures mentioned

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

is the device that is used

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

the device that is used

00:13:34--> 00:13:50

to take images along the throat and esophagus and the stomach. So this is known as a gat a gastro scope, a gastro scope, where basically

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

the making swallow this

00:13:54--> 00:14:05

this instrument and it goes into the mouth, it goes into the esophagus and then and then to the stomach ends up in the stomach and it takes images.

00:14:06--> 00:14:14

The purpose is to check for you know, to check for ulcers or any other problems in the stomach.

00:14:15--> 00:14:36

So, they she says it appears to him that this does not break the fast it does not invalidate the fast why? Because it is not something that is providing nourishment. It is not something that is providing nourishment, and and because it goes in and it comes out.

00:14:39--> 00:14:44

It goes in and it comes out. Yes we did say that if you eat anything

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

if you swallow anything that

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

even if it does not provide nourishment, it's going to break your fast because it's entering through the normal passageway to the stomach. And we said this is the this is the rule

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

Anything that you swallow from your mouth and it goes into your stomach, it breaks fast, regardless of whether it provides nourishment or not.

00:15:09--> 00:15:20

So how about in this case, why why is this exception Major, the scholars say, because this is something going in and coming out, it does not remain in the stomach, whereby it will be dissolved.

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

And so, the sheriff says it does not break the fast, except

00:15:27--> 00:15:40

he says except in one case, and that is if the doctor places something on this instrument, like some kind of greasy substance

00:15:43--> 00:15:47

to facilitate, to facilitate it entering

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

and going down down the throat.

00:15:51--> 00:15:59

And sometimes the use this, you know, some kind of substance, a fatty, greasy substance to make it easy to swallow.

00:16:00--> 00:16:03

So, he says in this case, it does break the fast because now

00:16:05--> 00:16:09

something is going into the stomach that will remain in the stomach,

00:16:11--> 00:16:21

it will remain in the stomach and it'll get dissolved. And perhaps it perhaps it is also nourishing, if it is a fatty, greasy substance.

00:16:22--> 00:16:23


00:16:26--> 00:16:28

after that the chef mentions other instruments

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

that enter through other parts of the body,

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

through the anus, through

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

through the urethra

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

into the urinary bladder.

00:16:47--> 00:17:00

He says also instruments that are entered into the mouth, then on to the throat. So, only entering into the throat, not all the way down to the to the stomach.

00:17:03--> 00:17:06

And so the shift has all of these instruments,

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

we say the same thing, like what we said concerning the

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

the gastro scope, that none of these instruments entering the body

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

break the fast.

00:17:22--> 00:17:53

And this is something that we covered when we went through shekel Islam, even 10 years book. And so he mentioned that anything entering the body through other than the mouse or the nose, it does not break the fast unless it is nourishing, if it provides nourishment to the body. So as long as it is not providing nourishment, then none of these things entering the body break the fast. After that we move on to

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

we move on to two things.

00:17:59--> 00:18:08

Knees old drops, and nasal springs, nasal drops and nasal springs.

00:18:09--> 00:18:12

The shift says nasal drops

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

that are inserted through the nose.

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

The brain break the fast

00:18:22--> 00:18:23

they break the fast.

00:18:26--> 00:18:34

And the reason for this is because the nose is a normal passageway. And this we covered

00:18:36--> 00:18:52

through the through the book of Ibn Taymiyyah. He mentioned that anything entering through the nose, it is considered a normal passageway to the stomach. And the chef mentioned that same Hadith that even Taymiyah mentioned that we should the Prophet also

00:18:53--> 00:19:00

said that we should sniff deeply water into our nose when we are making woowoo

00:19:02--> 00:19:18

unless we are fasting, meaning that if we are fasting we should not be doing that. So that proves that entering something into your nose and sniffing it that it breaks the fast because prophets Allahu Allah forbid us from doing that.

00:19:19--> 00:19:19


00:19:23--> 00:19:32

the sheriff says that even if it is in in considerably small amount, even then it breaks the fast because

00:19:35--> 00:19:39

when you were making Lulu you're entering a very small amount into your nose.

00:19:41--> 00:19:44

And yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam forbade that

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

as well nasal sprays.

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

The Chef's mentioned that we have two kinds of sprays.

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

He says those that are similar to asthma inhalers.

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

He says these do not in

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

validated fast, just like we said regarding asthma inhalers.

00:20:04--> 00:20:11

The second type are those that come in the form of drops that are sprayed into the know.

00:20:12--> 00:20:19

So, he says these are like nasal nasal drops and thus they break the fast moving on after that to

00:20:23--> 00:20:26

moving on after that to anesthesia

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

so, anesthesia is basically

00:20:33--> 00:20:41

you know, when the doctors they have to name your body for a procedure for a

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

for a surgery.

00:20:45--> 00:20:55

And so he says the sheriff says that we have different kinds, we have different kinds of this anesthesia, we have the partial one

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

and then we have

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

the the general anesthesia.

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

So he says partial anesthesia

00:21:13--> 00:21:23

he says there are different kinds of partial anesthesia. The first one is through inhale, inhaling. And so this is when the patient inhales

00:21:24--> 00:21:30

a gas substance that basically affects his nerves, and

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

does not mean his nerves. He says this does not invalidate the first because that gas substance.

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

It is no different to what we said regarding the asthma inhalers.

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

Secondly, he says through acupuncture,

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

partial anesthesia through acupuncture, he says

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

this is when we use certain needles

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

to numb and that part of the body.

00:22:05--> 00:22:08

He says this does not affect the fast.

00:22:10--> 00:22:15

As long as it is regional, it is only a part of the body and not the full body.

00:22:17--> 00:22:21

Because nothing is entering into the stomach, so it doesn't affect the fast.

00:22:23--> 00:22:26

And then he says partial anesthesia via injection.

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

And so these are certain drugs that they inject

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

into the body.

00:22:39--> 00:23:09

He says as long as once again, as long as it's regional, it's a part of the body and not the entire body that gets affected and it does not enter the stomach, then it does not invalidate the fast, it does not invalidate the fast, then it comes to the issue of general anesthesia. This is when there is a huge procedure like for example a heart transplant where they have to put you to sleep. Basically they have to make you go unconscious.

00:23:10--> 00:23:14

The sheriff says the scholars actually different over this issue.

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

And so they discussed this issue. Even earlier scholars of the past would discuss this issue under

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

the topic of the one who loses consciousness when he is fasting.

00:23:31--> 00:23:34

Does his fast remain intact? Or

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

does it break his fast. And so the chef says we have two scenarios. One scenario where the person loses consciousness for the entire day.

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

whereby he does not gain consciousness for any part of the day. He's passed out for the entirety

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

from the morning until the evening.

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

And so he says this person is fast is not valid according to the majority of scholars.

00:24:08--> 00:24:11

The second scenario is where

00:24:12--> 00:24:31

you do not lose consciousness for the entire day. And so this color is different. And so the sheriff says the correct view is that if the unconscious person gains consciousness for a part of the day, then his fast remains valid. Why? Because the intention for

00:24:32--> 00:24:41

faster than he had before. If I do that today, I'm going to fast I'm going to stay away from food and drink and sexual intercourse. That intention was made

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

during a part of the day,

00:24:45--> 00:24:53

he had that intention and it remained with him for a good part of the day. And then he went unconscious.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

So the sheriff says the same applies to general and

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


00:25:01--> 00:25:03

where they have to

00:25:05--> 00:25:15

make the person go unconscious, if it is for a part of the day, like for an hour for two hours for three hours, it does not invalidate the fast.

00:25:18--> 00:25:20

Moving on to

00:25:22--> 00:25:28

moving on after that to that which is related to the ear. And so the chef mentions ear drops.

00:25:30--> 00:25:35

And so he says these ear drops are non nutritional.

00:25:36--> 00:25:46

And he says Modern medicine has proven that there is no channel connecting the ear to the brain, allowing liquids to reach it

00:25:50--> 00:26:02

unless there is a rupture in the ear. And so based on this, he says that your drops do not invalidate the fast, do not invalidate the fast. Why did the sheriff mentioned something?

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

Why did he mentioned that there is no channel from the ear to the brain.

00:26:08--> 00:26:18

Because the early scholars, they used to believe that anything that reaches the brain, that would invalidate the fast,

00:26:19--> 00:26:35

anything that would reach the brain, that it would break the fast. And so this was based on their view, that there is no channel between the brain or this was based on their view that there is a channel between the brain and the stomach

00:26:37--> 00:26:42

whereby anything entering the brain automatically reaches the stomach

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

whereby nourishment can occur.

00:26:47--> 00:26:50

But modern science has proven that this is not the case.

00:26:51--> 00:27:01

And so we find it in the books are filled by the early scholars especially that they would mention this there anything that reaches the brain that it breaks fast. So that's why the shelf he mentioned this.

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

And so

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

he says your drops do not invalidate

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

the fast, do not invalidate the fast.

00:27:17--> 00:27:20

After that he mentioned eyedrops.

00:27:22--> 00:27:26

And so, eyedrops, he says do not break the fast.

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

And the reason for that is

00:27:33--> 00:27:41

that he says although modern science has proven that there is a channel between the eye and the stomach,

00:27:42--> 00:27:48

there is a passageway, a small passageway. However, he says that

00:27:49--> 00:27:52

the eyedrops are such a small amount,

00:27:53--> 00:28:00

they are very, very small, insignificant amount such that it is not imaginable that they will reach

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

the stomach

00:28:05--> 00:28:12

because it dissolves into the eyes into the tear ducts. And it doesn't go beyond that.

00:28:13--> 00:28:17

He says even for argument's sake, let's say that

00:28:18--> 00:28:40

something of these drops reaches the stomach. He says it would still be a very small inconsiderable amount and such small inconsiderable amounts are pardoned. We are not held accountable for that. Just like the water, just like the water that remains after rinsing the mouth when we perform over.

00:28:41--> 00:28:47

Yes, a few drops will remain of that water and will mix with our saliva and we'll end up swallowing it.

00:28:48--> 00:28:51

But we are not held accountable for that.

00:28:52--> 00:28:55

And so he says the same thing with the case of

00:28:58--> 00:29:04

eyedrops. Now when we discussed when we went through the book of Ibn Taymiyyah.

00:29:05--> 00:29:05

He mentioned

00:29:07--> 00:29:10

alcohol eyeliners that

00:29:11--> 00:29:27

would be used on the eyes. And he mentioned he'd been Tamia mentioned that there were scholars who consider that as breaking the fast and he refuted that view. He refuted that view. And he said these eyeliners these quicker

00:29:30--> 00:29:43

they are non nutritional and so anything entering through other than the mouth and the nose and it is not providing nutrition nourishment to the body then it does not break the fast.

00:29:48--> 00:29:55

After that this year, he goes on to talk about therapeutic injections, therapeutic injections.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

And so he says when it comes to injections, we have

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

three different kinds, we have three different kinds of injections

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

intradermal, intramuscular, and intravenous.

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

And so, he says,

00:30:15--> 00:30:18

As long as the injections

00:30:21--> 00:30:29

as long as the injections are non nutritional, then they do not invalidate a fast It doesn't matter where they're going.

00:30:30--> 00:30:32

So, if

00:30:35--> 00:30:40

if they are going into the muscles, or into the skin, or

00:30:42--> 00:30:46

into the veins, as long as they are non nutritional,

00:30:48--> 00:30:54

as long as they are non nutritional, they're not providing nourishment, then it does not break the fast.

00:30:57--> 00:31:04

However, now we have the issue of intravenous injections IVs that are nutritional.

00:31:05--> 00:31:14

And so these IVs break the fast and by unanimous agreement of the scholars of today.

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

And so the reason for that is obvious. And that is

00:31:23--> 00:31:37

that these injections are meant to replace food and drink. They are meant to replace food and drink for the patient. And so a person when he is not able to eat or drink and he becomes

00:31:39--> 00:31:51

dehydrated, for example. And whatever he drinks, he throws it up or whatever he eats, he throws it up and he ends up in the hospital. What do the doctors do? They put them on.

00:31:52--> 00:32:05

They put them on these injections. And these are supposed to be nutritional. They're supposed to provide nourishment, replacing food and drink for the person. And so

00:32:06--> 00:32:09

the very purpose of fasting the very

00:32:10--> 00:32:28

you know objection of the very objective of fasting is that we're supposed to stay away from food and drink because that will help us to achieve Taqwa that will help us to achieve Taqwa. And so if we are providing nourishment to our body, then we're missing out on that.

00:32:30--> 00:32:31

After that, the shift talks about

00:32:32--> 00:32:38

insulin needles. And so, these are for diabetic patients.

00:32:40--> 00:32:43

He says they do not invalidate the fast

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

these needles that are taken by

00:32:48--> 00:33:01

diabetic patients, they do not invalidate the fast they do not break the fast why? Because they are non nutritional, they do not provide nourishment and nutrition to the body.

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

After that, the shells he mentions

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

therapeutic dyes, ointments

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

and trans dermal patches.

00:33:19--> 00:33:22

And so, we we have various dyes we have various ointments

00:33:25--> 00:33:29

and patches that are used for the skin.

00:33:31--> 00:33:41

And so, there are blood vessels inside the skin that absorb whatever is placed on the surface of the skin.

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

And this absorption is slow, but it seeps through the skin and into the blood vessels.

00:33:53--> 00:33:53

And so,

00:33:55--> 00:33:58

the question is does it break the fast or not?

00:34:00--> 00:34:02

He says it does not break the fast

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

because it is only going into the skin

00:34:09--> 00:34:20

and there is no access point from the skin to the stomach. And these patches and these ointments, etc. They are not providing nourishment. And once again

00:34:21--> 00:34:22

once again,

00:34:23--> 00:34:40

even Taymiyah spoke about this when he spoke about treating wounds, treating open wounds. He says even though that treatment that is used, it'll go into the skin and into the blood flow but it is not providing nourishment.

00:34:42--> 00:34:51

Likewise ointments and creams that we use on our skin, yes, it goes into the skin, but it does not reach the stomach.

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

And then the chef's adds another point here and that is laser treatment. He says the same thing can be

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

instead of a laser treatment that is used on the skin

00:35:05--> 00:35:05

even though

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

a lot

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

of Allah

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

I shared one

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

a shirt or

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

a shirt

00:35:57--> 00:35:58


00:36:01--> 00:36:02

as heard

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

Hi Jana Solana

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

ie no SWANA

00:36:23--> 00:36:25


00:36:31--> 00:36:33

Hi Fi

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


00:36:43--> 00:36:47


00:36:49--> 00:36:49


00:37:05--> 00:37:05


00:37:06--> 00:37:07

deep into the skin

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

it does not break the fast it does not break the fast

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

after that the shares he mentions

00:37:34--> 00:37:39

he mentioned dialysis and so, dialysis is basically

00:37:41--> 00:37:47

a procedure that is used to treat kidney patients, kidney patients

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

and so,

00:37:53--> 00:38:02

he says you have two different procedures for this for dialysis. One is where there is a machine

00:38:05--> 00:38:09

which is often referred to as an artificial kidney.

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

And so,

00:38:13--> 00:38:27

the blood is pumped through this machine which then filters out harmful substances and then returns the blood to the body via its veins. So, it's like it cleans out the kidney.

00:38:28--> 00:38:36

He says during this process the body requires nutritional liquids which are given through its veins.

00:38:39--> 00:38:45

And so, he says this procedure breaks a fast it invalidates a fast because what did we say

00:38:46--> 00:39:00

that anything entering the body through other than the mouth and the nose, if it is providing nourishment and nutrition to the body then it breaks a fast he says the other procedure is

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

through the abdomen

00:39:05--> 00:39:26

by inserting a small tube into the abdominal wall above the navel and he says after that usually two litres of liquids that contain a high percentage of glucose are inserted into the abdomen remaining in there for a period of time then they are drawn out

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

and this process is repeated several times in the day

00:39:32--> 00:39:38

and so he says this breaks fast this breaks the fast once again why because

00:39:40--> 00:39:45

something nutritional is entering into the body and that is in this case glucose

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

okay after that the shirt he

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

He goes on to talk about

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

vaginal suppositories.

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

And so,

00:40:16--> 00:40:29

he says that modern science proves that there is no access point between the reproductive system of the woman and her stomach. So, there is no access point between her

00:40:32--> 00:40:43

between her reproductive system, any part of it and the stomach. So, anything entering into there does not break the fast, it does not break the fast

00:40:53--> 00:40:57

after that he mentioned blood donation, and this is something we spoke about previously.

00:41:01--> 00:41:06

And so, he says that blood donation breaks a fast why, because

00:41:07--> 00:41:18

a large amount of blood is being taken out of the body, and this will weaken the body, this will result in the weakness of the body.

00:41:19--> 00:41:27

And he says this is based on the Hadith concerning hijama cupping, that we spoke about before,

00:41:29--> 00:41:47

where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said of torille Jim, what drew the one who is doing the cutting, and the one who is having the cutting the free jam at dawn on him. Both of their fasts have become invalidated both of their fasts have broken.

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

And we spoke about this in length

00:41:52--> 00:41:59

when we covered the book of Ibn Taymiyyah. And so he mentioned in length, the reason for why

00:42:01--> 00:42:01


00:42:03--> 00:42:07

breaks fast. And the same thing can be said about blood donation.

00:42:11--> 00:42:17

And so it would be advisable somebody who wants to donate blood, that he should do it in the nighttime when he is not fasting.

00:42:19--> 00:42:23

After that Beshear has mentioned blood tests, blood sampling, where

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

they take out

00:42:27--> 00:42:31

a small amount of blood from the veins.

00:42:33--> 00:42:35

For the purpose of testing that blood,

00:42:37--> 00:42:38

he says

00:42:40--> 00:42:48

it does not invalidate the fast, it does not invalidate the fast. Why? Because it is a very small amount.

00:42:50--> 00:42:56

And it does not result in the weakening of the body like blood donation like hijama.

00:43:00--> 00:43:07

So blood sampling, and extracting blood for the purpose of testing, it does not break the fast.

00:43:13--> 00:43:19

After that the sheriff talks about blood transfusion, blood transfusion. This is when

00:43:20--> 00:43:33

blood is inserted into the body. So here, we're not talking about blood leaving the body but blood being inserted into the body. So perhaps you are on the receiving end of blood donation.

00:43:34--> 00:43:46

And so the sheriff says that the scholars modern day scholars have differed over this. But he says what appears to be correct is that

00:43:48--> 00:43:58

blood transfusion does break the fast. He says this is because the veins are an access point for providing nourishment to the body.

00:43:59--> 00:44:05

And this blood that enters via the veins carries with it

00:44:07--> 00:44:11

nutritional substances, even if you're getting blood from somebody else,

00:44:12--> 00:44:15

there is nutritional substances

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

in that blood that is now going to

00:44:19--> 00:44:25

that is now going to enter your bloodstream and provide your body with

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

with nourishment.

00:44:28--> 00:44:31

And so that is why it breaks up fast.

00:44:36--> 00:44:40

After that, the sheriff talks about therapeutic mouthwashes

00:44:41--> 00:44:46

so these are mouth washes that the doctors give to the patient

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

to rinse out the mouth,

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

either for the purpose of cleaning demotes after a surgical procedure or after removing a tooth

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


00:45:00--> 00:45:08

for treating certain illnesses. So, he says the correct view is that it is not to break the fast

00:45:10--> 00:45:14

but it is disliked for the fasting person to use this

00:45:16--> 00:45:30

because you want to make sure that you're not going to swallow any of that. And there is a chance that you may end up swallowing something of that mouthwash. So it is best to delay

00:45:31--> 00:45:34

taking these mouthwashes until after the sun has said

00:45:45--> 00:45:48

he says the same thing can be said about gargling therapy

00:45:54--> 00:46:20

and so gargling therapy is when they give you liquid substance and they ask you to gargle with it. The same thing that if it does not enter the throat, if it is not entering the throat and into the stomach then it does not break the fast but it is better for the fasting person to not use this and only use it after. After.

00:46:22--> 00:46:23

After sunset.

00:46:25--> 00:46:31

After that the shift talks about toothpaste. He says that toothpaste does not invalidate the fast

00:46:34--> 00:46:34


00:46:37--> 00:46:55

because it is something that you are cleaning your mouth with. And then you are spitting it out. You're not swallowing that toothpaste. But he says it is better for the fasting person to not use it while he's fasting but to delay it until after the sun sets.

00:46:57--> 00:47:01

And he says that we can do without it by using them his work

00:47:02--> 00:47:08

which is from the sun or he says a toothbrush without without toothpaste.

00:47:09--> 00:47:10


00:47:11--> 00:47:17

he says the same thing can be said about scented Miss wax and so there are Miss wax out there

00:47:18--> 00:47:31

that are scented. He said it takes the same ruling as toothpaste and takes the same ruling as toothpaste. Then after that he talks about dental grilling where the dentist

00:47:32--> 00:47:35

drills using an instrument

00:47:36--> 00:47:38

into into the gums.

00:47:42--> 00:47:44

He says first of all

00:47:45--> 00:47:52

there is anesthesia that is done. So they numb that part of

00:47:53--> 00:47:56

the mouth before they do that procedure.

00:47:58--> 00:48:00

And this has already been spoken about he said

00:48:01--> 00:48:07

it is a regional numbing only a part of the body and that does not break the fast. Secondly,

00:48:09--> 00:48:10

there is

00:48:12--> 00:48:14

blood that will come out

00:48:16--> 00:48:18

and so he says that

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

there is nothing wrong with blood coming out

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

when that dental procedure is done

00:48:26--> 00:48:32

unless it's a very large amount. And so if it's a large amount, then it will break the fast.

00:48:35--> 00:49:05

And then after the procedure they give you that mouthwash. So all of these things the sheriff says we have spoken about all of these things we have spoken about. And so he says based on all of this dental drilling does not invalidate the fast but he says it is best for the fasting person to delay it for a time when he is not fasting for a time when he is not fasting.

00:49:07--> 00:49:10

Then he talks about dental extraction.

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

He says the same thing.

00:49:14--> 00:49:16

The same will say the same thing regarding

00:49:17--> 00:49:24

taking over tooth. The same thing that we spoke about regarding dental drilling. There is nothing wrong with that.

00:49:25--> 00:49:29

It takes the same ruling dental laser treatment.

00:49:31--> 00:49:35

Again he says that does not break the fast dental implants

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

the same thing

00:49:40--> 00:49:42

he says it does not break the fast

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

and the same thing with dentures

00:49:53--> 00:49:55

artificial teeth that are placed.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

He says however

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

However, if

00:50:03--> 00:50:03


00:50:05--> 00:50:12

they are placed with a certain medication that they apply to it certain

00:50:13--> 00:50:15

substance that they apply to it

00:50:16--> 00:50:21

liquid solution that they apply to these dentures and then they put them on onto the teeth

00:50:24--> 00:50:25


00:50:26--> 00:50:32

it breaks fast because you are now going to swallow that liquid substance that is placed on it

00:50:36--> 00:50:40

after that the shift talks about artificial insemination.

00:50:41--> 00:50:54

And so, this is when some couples have not been successful at conceiving a child naturally, they require artificial insemination.

00:50:55--> 00:50:56

He says that

00:50:59--> 00:51:02

the Islamic fiqh Council, which is a huge fifth Council,

00:51:03--> 00:51:16

international fifth Council has mentioned that there are different techniques for artificial insemination, some are forbidden and some are permissible, some are haram and some are permissible.

00:51:18--> 00:51:21

And so, as for the permissible types

00:51:22--> 00:51:25

as for the permissible types, he says

00:51:27--> 00:51:33

that among the permissible types is where the man will

00:51:35--> 00:51:53

ejaculate semen and that will be taken and placed inside of the woman if he does this while he is fasting, then it breaks his fast because you know it is no different than sexual intercourse during the day time in Ramadan.

00:52:01--> 00:52:07

The say another way is where it is extracted from the man but not by him

00:52:08--> 00:52:10

you know masturbating for example,

00:52:12--> 00:52:14

but rather through a medical technique

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

the sheriff says that

00:52:22--> 00:52:24

if it is done while the person is awake

00:52:27--> 00:52:28


00:52:31--> 00:52:56

you know he feels some sexual pleasure out of that then it breaks the fast but if it is done while they have put them to sleep, then that is no different to wet dreams. So there's a lot of detail regarding artificial insemination. It depends on the technique that is used and depends on the technique that is used the shape says As for the woman

00:52:57--> 00:52:59

it does not affect her fast at all.

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

If it affects anyone's fast it is the man and not the woman because of what he mentioned earlier that there is no access point between the reproductive system of the woman and her stomach.

00:53:34--> 00:53:36

Okay after that the shift he mentions

00:53:41--> 00:53:42


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


00:53:46--> 00:53:48

he says smoking cigarettes is haram

00:53:49--> 00:53:52

because of the harm that it consists of.

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


00:53:58--> 00:54:01

back when tobacco was first

00:54:03--> 00:54:07

you know discovered and people were using it the scholars used to defer

00:54:09--> 00:54:13

is it something haram or is it not something haram but then

00:54:14--> 00:54:16

with the passage of time and with

00:54:18--> 00:54:32

modern medicine proving the various harms of smoking tobacco, the scholars unanimously have agreed upon the fact that it is haram it is not even mcru but rather smoking is haram

00:54:34--> 00:54:46

and that is because of the harms that leads to leading to a person's death eventually. And Allah subhanahu wa Tada forbade us from bringing harm to ourselves.

00:54:48--> 00:54:51

And so, the shares he says

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

that all the fuqaha all the scholars agree that smoking tobacco in breaks are fast

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

because the person is taking in,

00:55:06--> 00:55:08

you know, this tobacco and

00:55:10--> 00:55:15

this smoke and swallowing it. And so it breaks a fast

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

finally, moving on to the last point that the chef talks about, and that is hypnotherapy. And so HYPNOSIS is a condition similar to sleep.

00:55:34--> 00:55:35

And it is used to your

00:55:37--> 00:55:41

therapeutic therapeutically, to treat certain psychological disorders.

00:55:42--> 00:55:45

And so he says it is two types.

00:55:47--> 00:55:57

One, which is a light sleep, whereby the patient retains some awareness of what is happening around him. And he can even speak.

00:55:59--> 00:56:07

And it is mostly for a short period of time. And so he says its ruling is the ruling of sleeping does sleeping breaker for us No.

00:56:09--> 00:56:23

Secondly, the other kind is the hypnosis which reaches a level of anesthesia where one loses consciousness and awareness, he does not know what is going on around him.

00:56:25--> 00:56:46

And so its ruling is that of losing consciousness, which we have already discussed. And so we mentioned that if a person loses consciousness throughout the day from the beginning until the end, then this person does not have a valid fast. But if it is for a part of the day, then

00:56:48--> 00:57:15

his fast is intact, especially if he began his day, fasting, and alone was best. And with that, we come to the end of what the chef has mentioned in the short, concise book. Once again, for those who want the reference and would like access to this book, it is available in PDF form on my website, if you just go there or in Google

00:57:16--> 00:57:29

type, contemporary medical related matters that invalidate the fast, contemporary medical related matters that invalidate the past.

00:57:31--> 00:57:37

And so we ask Allah subhanahu wa Tada to grant us beneficial knowledge. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taala. To

00:57:38--> 00:57:46

accept from us our fasts. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us all of our good deeds.

00:57:47--> 00:57:49

John Donne during this month of Ramadan,

00:57:50--> 00:57:52

we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:57:53--> 00:58:07

to allow us to see another Ramadan masala Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad, while early he was supposed to be Ultramarine was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:58:09--> 00:58:45

Brothers and sisters, this Ramadan by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala we're going to launch the largest grant that I finished in the history of time. As you know, the pandemic and the shutdown has made given that are extremely difficult. So we thought what better way to give that our than giving a copy of the Quran to as many people as possible. I used to be an atheist but from interacting with Muslims, I bought a Quran and fell in love with it. Halfway through the book, I knew this was the tooth so I became a Muslim. Actually I became Muslim without even reading the Quran. A big reason was because of Islam pure monotheism.

00:58:46--> 00:59:17

After I took my Shahada brother the masjid actually gave me a copy of the Quran. And as soon as I started reading it, it only strengthened my faith even more. I was curious about the major religions of the world because I couldn't understand why people believe in God. So I got a copy of Pran the verses really touched my heart. I had never read a book like this. After doing my research, I became a Muslim. This Ramadan, multiply your words by sponsoring a copy of the Quran are a box.
