we continue on with our explanation of shareholder Islam, it's been 10 years
book hockey, cut Austria or the nature of fasting
and we left off where the show was talking about
why certain things
are not permissible for the fasting person
and why certain other things are permissible.
And so, when we talk about the things that break once fast, the sheriff was looking at the law behind it, they are lobbying the reason for why
we have such a ruling that this thing breaks fast.
And so, when it is claimed that certain things entering the body break the fast we have to look at whether they have the same eila the same reason or not the same reason as what the same reason as eating and drinking.
And so, eating and drinking break the fast what is the what is the reason for why it breaks fast because it provides nourishment to the body.
And when the body gets nourishment, it gets energy and
you know, it leans towards doing that which is hot off
and Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to train us through fasting to achieve his taqwa
and that is done by refraining from that which gives you energy to do and that is food and drink. So, the Sheikh was discussing this because it is claimed that certain things break the fast but yet those things they don't provide nourishment to the body such as using eyeliners in the eye
treating certain wounds with certain treatment that seeps into the body injections that are non nutritious
and so, the chef was talking about that
and then he comes to this question of okay. So, we have food and drink that breaks a fast
that is unanimously agreed upon, there's no dispute and also there are two other things that break the fast and these two other things are sexual intercourse
menstrual blood. So now he comes to the question of sexual intercourse. And so he says, if it is said how about sexual intercourse, it also breaks the fast but yet this
this reason is not there.
What reason? Nutrition so we said the reason why food and drink it breaks fast is because it provides nourishment.
So how about in the case of sexual intercourse?
So the shell he says that these first of all, he lays down a rule and that is anything that we have a text
we have scripture for the Quran, sunnah. Or each mouth unanimous agreement of the scholars, then that's it.
There is no objection, we don't try to figure out okay, so this is the reasoning behind this. So how about this?
As long as it is established by the Quran, the sunnah or age ma
Then we don't need PS, we don't need to play us.
And so he says, it is possible, it is possible for there to be different
ways, it is possible for there to be different highlighters for the things that break the fast as long as there is a text as long as there is a text.
And so it's possible he says it's possible that food and drink breaks are fast for a particular reason. And that is as we said nourishment.
And it is possible for another thing to break the fast that we have
evidence for from the Quran sunnah, such as sexual intercourse. And the reason for that being something else. The reason for that being something else, and also menses, in the case of women,
it has a completely different reason for why it breaks so fast. He says all of this is possible.
so he says that
we have these three different things that break the fast.
We have these three different things that break the fast eating, and drinking, which is nourishment,
sexual intercourse and menses. He says that
these things well, for the first time eating and drinking and sexual intercourse, this is something that the individual has
he has a choice with regards to with respect to mentors, it's, you know, it's not by her own choice that it comes.
So he says that this being the case, there are going to be different, the endless there's going to be different reason reasoning behind why Allah established these,
Meaning, there's going to be different reasons for why different things break the fast and it's not necessarily that everything that Allah is messenger have mentioned regarding that, which breeds the fast that it has to be because of one reason and that is nourishment. Yes, that is the case with respect to food and drink, but it is not the case with respect to the other things.
And so, the chef, he says, Now answering this question of okay. So, what is it what is the Isla What is the reason for why
Allah made sexual intercourse to break the fast he gets into this now and so, he says
the reason behind it is that you have
you have something leaving the body and that is in the case of men,
so, he says that this is no different than
menses in terms of blood, leaving the body and also
And so, it is something leaving the body
and all of these three things
are related to blood.
And so, he says,
it is something leaving the body and with respect to sexual intercourse, it is
it is one of the two Shahnawaz it is one of the two lustful desires of, of human beings.
Food and drink is, is a desire is something we crave. It is something we crave our enough's craves food and drink
and also sexual pleasure. It is something that our nurse craves.
And so basically
he goes on to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
in an authentic hadith, or solely what an adult ed? Yeah, sure what the who, what what Hannah mean actually,
that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in this hadith could see that fasting was for me, it was intended solely for my sake, so I will.
I will reward the fasting person.
And then Allah mentions the reason for why fasting is so great.
And why it is something special
show that he has set aside that he will reward the person for.
He says because he leaves his shower. He leaves his shower his desires and his food for my sake, he abandoned. He sacrificed his shower his lustful desire, and his food for my sake.
And so, it been to me it goes on to say, the fact that the person forsakes and sacrifices,
what He desires, what he craves for the sake of Allah. He says, this is among the greatest forms of a bad and this is the very, this is the very act of worship. This is the very, you know, form of worship that Allah loves. And Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards the person for just like He gives an example of going for Hajj.
And when you go for Hajj or Umrah, you take off your clothes, and put on specific clothes that you wouldn't otherwise where
you're doing that for the sake of Allah, you're refraining from using perfume, something you like something you enjoy, while in the state of a frog, you're staying away from it, for what for the sake of Allah.
And so you've been taking it goes on to say
sexual pleasure is
the greatest it is it is the highest form of pleasure that human beings have. So food and drink is one thing, craving to wear certain beautiful clothes is one thing,
wanting certain perfume to smell nice. That is one thing. But the thing that is the greatest from the pleasures of human beings is
is there sexual pleasure. And he says that it moves the body
and gives it enjoyment more than any other pleasure
more than food and drink, for example.
it also moves the blood. It also moves the blood in the body more than food and drink.
And then he says
as we mentioned the Hadith previously, that shaitan flows in the son of Adam, like how our blood flows in our bloodstream
nourishment that we get
in our body, it causes our blood to move and circulate.
Whereas if we were not to be eating or drinking, then our blood circulation slows down.
And so when you eat and drink
when you eat and you drink
and you're getting nourishment, and your blood starts to flow, and you start to have energy, this basically moves your neffs to incline to its shallot to its lustful desires and it causes the knifes
to no longer have a desire for a bad
and as we mentioned in the last session, even Taymiyah mentions that this is the very reason for why
Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated fasting.
So that we
saw that our desires for Haram are lessened and our desire for a bad
and so even Taymiyah he says
sexual intercourse is something
it is the highest level of of pleasure for the human being. And it is his shower basically his his human lustful desires that he is fulfilling.
And that is the very thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to cut off.
Allah subhanahu wa data wants us to do
He wants to train us
to control that neffs and wanting to fulfill its desires that he craves. And so when the person does that act of sexual intercourse, then it's completely it's, you know, completely going against the very reason for why fasting was legislated. And so even Taymiyah says, that is the reason why the one who does it in the daytime, and this is with his lawful wife.
This is the reason why there is such a huge penalty on him.
And that is the kuffar the penalty of doing this Act,
which was explained in Hadith, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam A man came to him, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, I have been ruined. So the parcel Salam asked him, What have you done? He said, I had sexual intercourse with my wife, in the daytime in Ramadan. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him, Do you have
a you have the ability to free a slave?
And so, you know, such a huge compensation such a huge penalty for, for doing this, while fasting.
So this the kuffar to free your slave? He said, No, I don't have that ability. So the practice of Solomon said,
Do Can you fast for 60 consecutive days? Can you fast for 60 consecutive days. So that is the next level. And in our day and age, we don't have slaves to free. So if a person ends up in this problem, he should fast for 60 consecutive days. That is a penalty that is a Cafaro.
So the man he said no, I'm not able to do that, in another narration of the Hadith says
How could I possibly be able to do that when
you know, this is the very thing that landed me into this problem, meaning that he couldn't stand one day
without, you know, fulfilling His pleasure with his wife. So how about 60 consecutive days? So, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Can you feed 60 people. So, that is the next level. If you're not able to fast 60 consecutive days, then you have to feed 60 people.
So, the point is that the penalty for this is so huge.
The penalty for this is so great. And so, Ibn Taymiyyah he says
this is the reason for why
fasting by this the reason for why sexual intercourse breaks the fast this is a reason for it, because a person is satisfying his desires and Allah subhanahu etalon legislated fasting, so that we control our desires and so, it goes completely opposite to the very objective for why fasting was prescribed in the first place.
And then the sheriff says
he says, besides that, there is also another point that we can add
and that is that doing this act
it weakens the body.
And so, when a person has you know, sexual intercourse
afterwards his body becomes weakened.
And so he says this is an additional reason for why Allah made it haram
to do it during the daytime in the month of Ramadan.
And he says
he says that this is another reason.
And then he goes on to mention a very, very beautiful point.
And so he says that
he says that our Sharia
one of its main objectives was to balance everything out.
And going to extremes
wounds in our head
is something that we have been forbidden from.
And Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He prescribed that we balance even in our iba, we balance things out. And we take a moderate course.
And he says this is why the fasting person is told to quickly break his fast meaning.
When the time of Maghrib comes in the sunsets we should we should quickly break our fast we shouldn't delay it. We're not supposed to delete one shouldn't say, Oh, let me just make sure let me
let me continue my fonts for another five minutes or another 10 minutes or half an hour it's no problem I'll break my fast leader know
the prophets that Allahu Allah was on forbade us from doing that. We're not supposed to do that. But rather as soon as we are certain that the sun has set right away we have to break our fast and at the same time
it is from the sunnah to delay our social
to delay it until right before Fajr.
What is the reason for that?
What is the reason for that? The reason for that is
because Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want us to go to extremes.
And he wants us to take this balanced path.
And for this reason, we have been forbidden from
fasting consecutively outside of the month of Ramadan.
We shouldn't fast every single day
but rather as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, off Bano cm. What are the last three? So yeah, muda would Allah has said
that the best form of fasting and the most balanced form of fasting was the first of the award Alia Salam. Can I assume Yeoman while you flew Yeoman? What are your Pharaoh Illa? Allah is Allah.
The Prophet SAW Selim said he used to. He used to fast one day, and he used to break his fast the next day, meaning he would fast one day and he would not fast the second day, he would fast every other day.
And so even Tamia says that
one of the objectives of our Sharia is to make sure we tread a balanced a moderate path, and we don't go to one of the two extremes.
And he says Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you will Adina Ave glad to have the more Twiggy batimat Hello Allahu laka or you will believe do not make haram, the good provision the good food that Allah has made halal for you.
also Allah subhanho wa Taala says Furby Waldmann been a lady and a hairdo held Ramana Allegion polybutene were held at home or be sold to him. I'm Sabina Kathira, that the Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala because of their transgression, but Allah subhanahu wa taala made haram for them certain things that were otherwise handled for them. What was the reason for that? Because they transgressed and so Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want us to transgress, he doesn't want us to go overboard, with respect to our idea that
and so, even Taymiyah he says, this being the case,
this being the case, the fasting person,
the fasting person was forbidden from taking into his body, that which would provide him nourishment, food and drink.
And he was also forbidden
from taking out from his body, that which would weaken him
and release that which would provide him with nourishment.
So what the chef is saying, here is the fasting person in the month of Ramadan, he is forbidden from
taking into his body
that which would provide nourishment, enough nourishment that would make them to transgress,
as we said, make them to fall into haram. Because fasting it trains us to achieve taqwa and to stay away from haram.
preventing ourselves from from nourishment.
Enough, enough so that
we're able to worship Allah subhanho wa taala.
Not that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to starve ourselves to the point of, you know, killing ourselves. That's not what was happening with data once. And that's why we are supposed to have a healthy soul
in the beginning of the day, so that so that we can last until sunset.
If Allah subhana who would not have wanted to torture us, then he wouldn't allow us to have some ruler.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala
he is the most wise and he is the motion just and He is the Most Merciful. And that is why he SubhanaHu wa Tada. He did not legislate fasting for us in order to torture us. But rather, in order for us to achieve Taqwa.
And so, the point is even Taymiyah he says here
that the fasting person has been told to stay away from that which would give him too much nourishment.
And at the same time,
he is to stay away from that which will
release something from his body
release something from his body, which would have given him at least a little bit of nourishment to last for the day. And what he means by this is semen that basically leaves the body when after a person has sexual intercourse.
That is basically
you know, it, it is its its source is blood. And so blood is leaving your body. And when blood leaves your body,
it weakens your body, it weakens your body. And this is why this is why
this was made forbidden for the fasting person.
until even Taymiyah says that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to be balanced. So yes, we're supposed to stay away from food and drink because it provides nourishment. At the same time. We're not supposed to weaken our bodies, by taking out from our body,
blood in large amounts such that it will weaken us. And so this is the point that he he wanted to address that, you know, we are supposed to remain balanced, we are supposed to remain balanced.
And so the fasting person,
the fasting person in the month of Ramadan,
there are two things that break his fast, either something entering the body, or something leaving the body, that which enters the body. It gives him strength, it gives him nourishment.
And this is why we're supposed to stay away from it, whether we food drink or
that which replaces food and drinks such as IVs
in glucose and so on and so forth.
That which leaves the body
it weakens the body,
such as sexual intercourse, and also blood
and also masturbation and the blood of menstruating women and also a hijama cupping, which the sheriff is going to address after this discussion. He's going to get into a very lengthy discussion regarding Jama regarding cupping
and so, even Taymiyah he goes on to say
he goes on to say after that, that that which leaves our body that which leaves our body
there are two kinds
that which leaves our body or two kinds. The first that which we don't have any choice over
we don't have any choice regarding
such as passing,
urinating, passing stool, etc.
He says in fact
Not only is it something out of our control, but also,
if we were to keep it in our body, it would harm us. And so we have to get rid of it.
But at the same time, we have no choice with respect to it.
And the same thing with respect to vomiting and throwing up, a person doesn't have any choice with respect to that. And also, he says,
having a wet dream. So this is something leaving the body.
But it's something out of your control, you have no choice with respect to it.
And so he says,
As for vomit, he says, As for what it is taking out from your body,
the food and drink that would have otherwise provided you with the nourishment.
And that is enough nourishment to last for the day.
So when it leaves the body, when it leaves the body,
then this is weakening your body.
Likewise, with respect to he says,
with respect to sexual intercourse, or masturbation,
even though it also includes Shaohua, satisfying one's desires,
as well as that, on top of that,
it is releasing something of blood from the body which will also be Connect, which will also weaken it.
And blood is a source of nourishment for our body.
so these are what the sheriff mentioned. Then he mentioned the issue of
the issue of menstrual blood.
So now we've kind of like finished our discussion regarding
sexual intercourse, because that is the third thing that breaks the fast, which is unanimously agreed upon. And so the chef mentioned the reason for that, the reason for why
it breaks the fast and so in a way, it's different to why food and drink breaks are fast. So food and drink breaks are fast, because it is providing nourishment to the body.
you know, we are being trained to
stay away from that which
provides nourishment, so that we achieve the Taqwa of Allah.
As for sexual intercourse, then
basically, this is something that
leaves from the body. And it is something that will,
it is something that will provide it or that will get rid of that will get rid of whatever nourishment the person needed to last for the day.
And so, as we can see, the shift, he points out to this very, very important point of how Allah subhanho wa Taala balanced, he balanced for us. And so he wants us to have enough energy to worship him.
Although he refrained us from nourishing our bodies, so although we are supposed to stay away from that, which nourishes our body, but at the same time, we shouldn't go to extremes and get rid of blood that we actually need
to last for the day. Then after that, we go on to the issue of
height, which is the menstrual blood. And so the shirt says
the same reasoning here
that this is excessive blood leaving from the body and
the woman she needs. She needs to replace that with, with water with food.
Otherwise, you know, the body becomes very, very weak.
And so this is why the menstruating woman is supposed to stay away from
while she's in that state of bleeding
Whereas outside of that state,
she has to fast. He says, outside of the state of, of her period, she has to fast.
And so this shows us how her fasting during that period,
when she doesn't have her period, her fasting is balanced, it is moderate. And when she is on her period, not fasting, this is balanced, this is moderate. And so either way, the Sharia
came to balance things out to balance things out.
He says, As for the case of
as for the case of the Musa Hava and that is a woman who bleeds
outside of her normal periods.
And this is known as the blood of st Hava. And so this is irregular bleeding outside of
the, the normal period. And this has a whole set of rulings concerning and so the woman who has irregular bleeding outside of her regular period, then the ruling concerning that is that she has to continue praying that she has to continue fasting, and she must constantly clean herself.
And so the chef says, with respect to the monster, however, the woman who bleeds irregularly like this,
she has to fast, because this is something she cannot control. This is something you know, outside of her choice, just like the person who perhaps he will vomit outside of his control. The person who has a wet dream, again, outside of his control, likewise, the woman who has irregular bleeding, this is outside of her control. And so this is why she has to continue her fast.
Until the chef says, This is why there's a difference between these two kinds of bleeding.
Because someone may ask, okay, you just said that bleeding is the reason for why
the fast breaks.
So how about in the case of a woman who is in the state of irregular bleeding. So the sheriff says, This is the reason for that, that this is something outside of her control. And
it would mean that she would never be able to fast, she would never be able to fast. And so she has to fast.
She has to continue her fast, until she comes to the point where now she is bleeding her normal,
her normal period. So this is what the sheriff mentioned then after this.
After this, the sheriff goes on to say How about Ajahn.
hijama is also blood leaving from the body. And Kdrama is basically cupping, which is a type of treatment that is used to inject bad blood from our body, which is used for treating various
medical problems, various pains in the body.
And so the chef says the scholars have disputed quite a lot concerning Futurama. Does it break the fast or does it not?
And then the chef's who will get into a very, very lengthy discussion now talking about this issue of hijama going through the various Hadith or various narrations concerning it. So in sha Allah hooter Hana, this is what we will leave for the next two sessions in sha Allah Tala.
So we ask Allah subhanho wa taala.
To grant us beneficial knowledge we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us, our fasting, our PM, our salah, our solder clock, we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to accept from us all of our good deeds during this month of Ramadan. Masala Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad, while early he was on be edge marine was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Allah shows the moment of regret that is inevitable in the life of every human being.
So a person says, Oh Allah give me just a bit more time so I can give sadaqa and I can become righteous and correct my ways. Allah says, Allah is not going to delay Allah is not going to give any one more time. Brothers and sisters do we all know benefit in some way or the other from the Masjid. So who will support us if we don't support ourselves? We are in the last 10 days of Ramadan. And as you all know, our good deeds are multiplied in this blessed month. Please, without any delay or hesitation, help us with our upkeep and expansion of the machine so that we can serve you better, Don't postpone, don't put it off. Don't do it last minute because you don't know when death is going
to come and in what state is going to meet you. So as long as you have your senses, you have your awareness you have your, your chance now utilize it to not procrastinate.
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 Canada. As you know, the pandemic and the shutdown has made given that are extremely difficult. So we thought what better way to give that hour 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 could ad and fell in love with it. Halfway through the book, I knew this was the truth. So I became a Muslim. Actually I became Muslim without even reading the Quran. A big reason was because of Islam pure monotheism. 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 cran the verses really cut to 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 or a box.
