Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome dear viewers to another live episode of hula tonight, and I'm your host for the program janetta. The viewers like to take this opportunity to thank Allah subhana wa tada for giving us the chance to work for his thing. And I'd also like to thank all the viewers for their continued support and giving us their contributions at the same time. The viewers, we have two fantastic discussions prepared for you today. In Segment Number two. We're going to be discussing the holy month of Rajab. And in Segment Number three, we're going to look at a particular prophetic narration which talks about the signs of the hypocrites, so tune in
for both of those discussions. Coming back to this particular segment, we're talking about the holy month of Ramadan, the sorry the holy month or Raja should I say, this is the seventh month in the Islamic calendar. And it's so holy that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam even prohibited any forms of fighting to take place. Not just that, but the prophets of Salaam used to make continuous they are asking Allah to make this month and the following month, a blessed month, and that he would reach the month of Ramadan. But Debbie was this month is a blessed month. And there are certain practices that one may carry out in order to prepare himself for the holy month of Ramadan. But
unfortunately, there are certain practices that have continued to take place over the years, which are really not from Islam, but you can give various reasons to why they have been introduced into the deen of Islam and we want to talk about those matters one by one and trying to make people aware of the true nature of this beautiful month and the shape we have in the studio inshallah to Allah will be given all the questions to elaborate the virtues of this man. So if I can begin by introducing our shape for the day we have with the shaker him, I was aide who works very closely with the TV, and you were with us last week was all we had a fantastic discussion last week talking
about negligence and extremism check. I like to welcome you to the program. Sarah Monaco salam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Brother Junaid the viewers. I'm happy to be back. Thank you very much. Also debuts at this point. I would like to remind you that it is a live program and our phone lines are open. You will see our numbers running across the screen very shortly. Please do call us give us your questions, your comments, your concerns, anything you have. Bring it to us inshallah. Tada. The shift is here so you can answer all of your questions. Sure. So let's begin talking about the blessing month of Rajab
is described as one of the holy months what is meant by holy month Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah
ilaha illallah wa de who la sharika. foreshadow uno Mohammedan avocado Who woulda shoulda. First of all, when the month of Raja
reaches us, we should echo the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
Lima mathematic combined the Hadith, that chain is a good one. I love my Vedic lenor here Raja worship and we live in Ramadan. And I think you hinted to that in your
beautiful intro to the show tonight. Or a lot less for us the month of Rajab, as well as the month of Chabad and Oh Allah prolong our lives, so we get to the month of Ramadan. So tying the three month together is really the password tonight if we can get the viewers to grasp the essence of the connection. Among the story those three months. I think it would be a successful mission bead Mila, hit on answering your question. Allah subhana wa Taala states in a verse in Surah tetovo would we let him initiate on a regime in a shoe hoodie in the law hit nashotah Sharon fee kita Villa here mahalo, Casa Mattila. minha roboton horam delicate Dino Chi em Fela, Lee movie hidden, forsaken,
indeed the number of months in a year with Allah
since he created the heavens and the earth are 12 so there are 12 month in the lunar calendar, okay. Out of those 12 month there are four which are given a particular significance. They are described to be harem, sacred, holy. Why? First of all, because Allah subhana wa Taala given these four month as certain sanctity
above any other month, Okay, number two, they say because fighting during this month was four months
is forbidden or less
It is initiated by your enemy. So in self defense, you can fight but you initiating a fight that is forbidden in Islam during the four month, which are sacred. Okay, number four, number three would explain the word why they are horam. Number three, a sin that is committed for injustice let's use the word that is used in justice that is committed during those four months in the sight of Allah are
punishable or more offensive. Okay, I hope I'm using a proper English here. Then sending is haram at any other time of course regardless, but Allah Subhana Allah has given the certain times
a sanctity, now assign of righteousness and piety that you magnify sanctify? What Allah Subhana Allah given a sanctity
it's like you go to Makkah, okay to sin. You know this is in a way absurd that this is a very special place in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you go the nuclear medicine and this is actually what patata IGNOU the Artemis to do. She made a statement, which was a kata is one of the students of NSF nomadic or the Alon. He said avoiding any injustice committed in this four month is more punishable. They have a sin in the sight of Allah than any other month, even though injustices in general are unlawful in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala Okay, so this is why these four month are called sacred or haram. What are those four months or so so Allah Allah, Allah identify
them in Hadith Abbey Baqarah are the alarm on the Hadith is compiled in both Swahili Imam Al Bukhari Muslim
simply is during the federal Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he addressed the companions and he said to them, in the zemana, this Dora k at he yo mahalo Casa Mata Allah, this is a very interesting statement, okay. Because that brings another
subject, which is called in the sea, what is in the sea?
Like I mentioned earlier, because fighting during those four sacred month is forbidden, even prior to the final mandate of Islam at the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So what the Arabs used to do, they use to change the month exchange the names, so this is Roger, okay, we're not gonna call it Roger, we're gonna call it a matter. So we're gonna give it a different name, so we can fight. Right? Okay. So just playing with terminology, yes, playing with that with the names of the month, so that they would make lawful, the unlawful and vice versa. Okay, so now Ross, also Allah said, on his farewell sermon is telling his companions that listen, all that messing around
that the Arabs did, has ended. So Panama miraculously, today, the time is set the way that Allah has started. Okay, so, so palala, the Pharaoh. So from that time on, you know, all that mixing of names and all of that, that the Arabs did to the the names of the sacred month, in order to make lawful, the unlawful and so forth, has stopped since that time in America, this dharak at Omaha sumati Allah and then he mentioned that they eat in the sight of Allah is made of 12 month minha arbeiten hurum out of those 12 months, there are four who which are sacred. Then he named them the Serato. Talia, three of them come in sequence. Okay.
What the heck, Jay? Well, Mohan and then he named the month which we're addressing tonight was Raja boo modan. Okay, so why did he call it Raja mother? Because the thrive of mother was the only tribe who would refuse to exchange the name of project right they would stick to Roger regardless and they would refrain from fighting. This is why the prophets Allah Allah because somehow they sanctify the month more than any other tribe. That's why the prophets are solemn, attributed the monks to them. Raja Buddha and lady who avena Gemma the worshiping Gemma da da da da da da da Banda mon that comes between Jamaica and Siobhan. So this is the month
Which we are talking about okay now what should we do in this month? Okay just before we talk about what you do I want to ask is all the particular prayer that you mentioned the door that the processor used to make about Roger been chairman and then reaching Ramadan those three months when you see the connection of these three months in this particular door, I get the feeling as if these two months are like a preparation for Ramadan is that the correct understanding the scholars say? That project is the month where you place the seed in the ground okay.
Chabad is the month when you water that seed okay. Ramadan is the month when you harvest so really if we want to take benefit of Ramadan you have to start now Yeah, II see what happened is a lot of Muslims they wait until Ramadan is here. So they want to plant the seed. They want to water the tree and they want to harvest you end up with a sour
if you do this you know if you get a quick harvest, it's very sour, right? And most of the time is very unsuccessful. Very unsuccessful. A lot of people feel that I'm alone because of this. Because actually the preparation for Ramadan happens right before Ramadan and we're talking about those two months beginning with the month of Raja then shabang Ramadan, you see in Raja
there is one certain command which the prophets a lot which the Quran actually indicated. fella Tom Lee movie hint enforcer come in general in these four months, refrain from sinning. Okay, so the emphasis in Roger is to refrain from sinning. So in writing what you should do, you should plan the C to stay away from the unlawful right okay. A lot of Muslims brother Junaid, they sometimes just admire and look at acts of worship acts of obedience. But they don't appreciate so much staying away from the unmoveable. Right? Actually, the schoolers were asked, the Lola would ask, which is better in the sight of Allah Of course, both of them are mandatory and so forth. But which is better is to
engage in obedience or to refrain from this obedience. He said to refrain from this obedience. Because this is heavier on the self than engaging in obedience. And in Islam in general, they're old enough said that you block evil precedes bring in goodness. Okay, so you stopping evil during the month of Rajab, this is what is meant by it. Now, the moment that you do this, you have planted the good seed. Now what you need to do now is to grow that seed in Sharman, right, and you need to do some righteous good deeds, so that in Ramadan, you're prepared and you're ready to go in Sharla Okay, excellent. So, if we look at our traditions and our customs, we will find that there are a
number of actions that people do inside of Roger under certain actions that I think are prohibited but yet people do them also inside over a job. So, if I can begin by clarifying this particular situation, and say that the actions that we should do are what I would say is a sooner is that correct to say so,
first of all brother Junaid, the viewers, you know, when we do something,
we're hoping that Allah will accept it. Okay.
it doesn't matter how much you do.
In NEMA, the Kaaba law hominem attack, only Allah Subhana Allah accepts from those who are righteous and pious. But now we were given information about the guidelines for our acts to be accepted. Okay. Three main conditions that you must fulfill
in order to validate the act and hope for the acceptance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number one being a Muslim to begin with a condition number one because regardless of what you do with it is not done on the basis of the heat. The foundation of La ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasul Allah is nullified, has no value whatsoever in the skill of Sharia females and Shara Deen. Okay, number two is you're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala sincerity. Number three which really answers your question that actually is adherence if the act is ritualistic. Okay, meaning meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam already acted and practiced these acts for us. So we must
follow his footsteps. He said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
Lu Kamara to mono solly pray like you see me pray. Okay. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Todd will do he had, whoever makes will do exactly like I'm doing it right now when he showed them how he made will do Salas, Allah. He said Who do I need him and a seeker can take your rituals after me. So Ross also lived Roger and lived Charmin and lived Ramadan. And he is simply showing us what needs to be done during this month. So when I've asked you just to hold your thought there because we have a phone call and inshallah Allah will continue with that. Okay, so as I understand we have a phone call Salaam Alaikum.
Okay, so let's Allah they provide for Can I ask you to call us again, I think the line has been disconnected. Please do call us the phone lines are open the viewers pick any of those two numbers that are running across your screens and presenters with your questions and the shape is here. So any question that you feel fitting, if I could ask you to continue. So sooner is the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the way that the prophets of Allah Allah says,
sometimes understanding, you know, a certain term would become better if you try to capture it's contrary, what is the contrary of this one famous word that people do not like to hear most of the time be Dobie Dobie la vida. Okay, what is better with that you certainly come up with a practice that has never been exercised by the prophet sallallahu wasallam and you're doing it seeking the pleasure of Allah worshipping Allah. So are you saying that the direct opposite of bidder is sooner Is that right? Absolutely. sooner. But again, when we say that we're assuming that we mean the sooner
the wave the profits or loss I will have to stop you again. The brother has decided to call us back. So I'm on a call
you doing brother?
Okay, brother, go ahead and give us your question or your comment. Okay, I want to say regarding
that they want to give me now I'm walking in manager
I'm working as a manager at a fitness center.
But my boss wanted to transfer me to another place to work for him as a manager and this place is a new market.
It comprises of different groups that I will be sharing what among them alcohol is part of it
involved but I'll be a manager there. So which I am having doubts to accept this offer, even if this will cause me to lose my dress and walk and know what
to do. Okay, is that any other question? Was that if my brother
Okay, inshallah Tada, we thank you for your phone call and the shakers here. We'll try our best to squeeze that question in the program somewhere and inshallah inshallah we will get there. So thank you very much for for your call. Just Just to clear this before we okay.
It's not related to our subject. Just repeat the question just for the sake of those who didn't understand. So there is a brother who is working in the market, and he's got a new job in another market, but in that place, he has to deal with alcohol. So is that permissible or not permissible. selling alcohol is unlawful in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala the Hadith is crystal clear. The curse of Allah is upon a person who sells alcohol. I advise the brother to kindly request from his manager to stay in his you know, fitness center wherever he is.
And do not entertain the job
at all deserve long time. Okay, thank you very much. Yeah, beta is the opposite of when. Beta is when you introduce an act that has never been Perea cartoon Phil Dini, IANA Matera is a newly invented practice in the religion that the person does it. Seeking the neatness of Allah subhana wa tada
right with the
the schoolers divided into two categories asleep
by origin it's a bit that never been practiced before. Like for example, celebrating the birthday of the Prophet never been practiced before. Okay, this is unoriginal innovation is has no base simply the other one which really more difficult to convince people
to scold, additional interfere, that the act itself is praiseworthy. You're talking about fasting, you're talking about the 100 you're talking about acts of worship, but you do them at a time when you shouldn't be doing them or you're doing them with an intention that you should not have. Just to give you a good grasp of this hadith Abdullah have now more or the Allahumma one day the Prophet when they are live now Omar was sitting down and someone was sitting down next to him
and he sneezed. Okay, the person sneezed. So one should what should you do? What should you say when you sneeze? Alhamdulillah Okay, or you could say Alhamdulillah, Allah hoolahan. Most of them are authentic. So this person said well Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah right okay. Just for the viewers to grasp the what is so difficult about the additional beta? So Abdullayev number Look how our beloved normal responded to him he said, What can I also say was salat wa salam ala rasulillah. But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam never told us to say it in that particular situation.
It's like when you pray, and in your record, you recite the Quran, what is wrong with reciting the Quran, but not in that position, not in that situation. So, the problem with the additional VEDA, and I think this is where the month of Rajab actually gets a lot of heat, okay, because of this, because all these acts which people do in the month of Rajab are good acts, okay. But the problem is attributing them to the month of Raja, this is the VEDA, you're doing them because of the month of Raja, we need to understand this, sometimes Allah Subhana Allah May or the Messenger of Allah Allah may give a certain time a certain place, a certain sanctity, okay. But sometimes there is no need to
righteously I mean, do extra deeds on these days, or at these places, there is no need for that for what people do in the month of Ramadan. fasting for example, but again, they tie fasting to Raja, right hypno Hydra last palani acknowledge Abraham belly, and others, they say there is no one single Hades, single body, one single head even the sooner which gives any virtue or merit to fasting in the month of August. Again, I'm not talking about a brother or a sister who fast Monday and Thursday or fast three days out of the month, the 13th or 14th or 15th or scattered date or somebody even how fast the fast thing of that would be fast one day and he breaks early.
And he breaks fast one day, okay, you can go ahead and do this. There is nothing wrong with that if this is your intention, but you do not fast because of Raja like fasting the first Juma and Raja fasting the first Thursday in Raja, this is called bidda Adolphe, okay, additional data how you see fasting is good, there is nothing wrong with it, and is praiseworthy. Whoever fast one day is seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala Allah distance his face 70 years from the Hellfire, okay, there's no question about it. But again, you're tying this to Raja is the Buddha. Okay. On that note, as well, you mentioned the two types of Buddha but there's a third type of Buddha which
you hear people talking about as well. If you could clarify for the that as well. And they say
so a good bidder. So maybe somebody is doing these first in because he thinks it's it's a good thing. It's not a bad thing. What was the response to that? Okay, this is something in the Sharia called the station. Okay. Okay.
There is one fifth he rule, which really kills all of this. Okay. What does it say? I actually feel a bear that will have to be the lead when Oslo feels that elaborately What does this mean? By default? You're banned.
You're not allowed to perform any act of worship unless you have an evidence. Okay? You're getting that I'm with you. And by default, all habits all customs are lawful unless you have an evidence to stop it. Okay. So the device there they go again is head to head. So let's come to a better because this is really the argument that a lot of people do have with us. Okay. When you go and tell them you cannot do this, brother. You're asking me not to fast brother. You're asking me enough to do salata, raha brother, you're asking me enough to do aroma brother.
What is your evidence brother that comes in and also they asked you for the evidence.
No, no, no, you are the one who has to produce the evidence to do this act, not me. And also, on that note, when you say when you talked about the issues of worship, there has to be an evidence behind it. And those are besides these actions as being one of the things that they bring forward and I just want to get your response on that as well as they use the story of Omar and the story of the thrower and they say that I'm gonna come to that sooner has anything I'm gonna just but I just want to furnish here the foundation first.
They normally use to evidence Hadeeth men sent nephele Islam so nothing has right God right now Nabila Hill, Virgil if Salima Muslim, and also that story of Omar and tarawih, that those are you know, famous evidences which they use. But I want to I want to get the viewers to understand this show. Go ahead. You see, if somebody celebrates the mount Laguna de Sala, Salah ala, the birthday of the prophets, Allah, you go and kill them, you shouldn't be doing this. Normally, they asked you to produce an evidence for them not to do it. Okay? That's not how it goes. you produce an evidence to do it, because you're the one who is initiating an act of worship. Okay, so you're supposed to
produce the evidence. So we're clear on this right? So now let's come back to the issue of VEDA has an answer NASA. There is no such a thing in Islam. Let's deal with the Hadith hardihood NaVi salam, Salam Abdullah, eventually look at the story of this hadith and you tell me what this has to do with the with the with the Buddha or or others also, Salah one day was sitting in the masjid. And a group of Muslims arrived coming from the desert, which tab in Lima, right there cloth or Turin. They look that they are hungry. They are really desperately in need of help, are also salatu salam, as we like to call there, there may be a comma. He led the salah and he stood and he encouraged the Muslims and
it seems like the time was a tough time. He fundraised for them. He encouraged the Muslims to give for those individuals. So it seems like the Muslims were reluctant because you know, it was a tough time okay for them. But one man Romulans are went home. He grabbed his blanket. And he grabbed every item he has in his house, and he carried it on his back. And he brought it in front of the Prophet sallallahu sadhaka
the moment that the companion saw the Sahaba doing this, each one of them stood and did the same thing. I want to ask you a question right now. So did this Sahabi invent the act of charity and Islam? No, of course not. No. The act of charity is already established. But what did he do? He resurrected the act and he encouraged others to follow him. Okay. This is what is meant my man send nephele Islami soon it's back exactly. Who is reviving something reviving some okay. Exactly like in a village or in a town. There is zero bearded man. Okay. And someone starts a beard with the intention of this one of the prophets, Allah Samson. Soon that means a command of the Prophet
salallahu alaihe salam, and every man in the village would follow him. This is what is meant by a certain level Islam is something that is already established in the religion. Now the statement which abused is the linguistic meaning of the word beta, but we asked the question, what what is the story simply after the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Abu Bakr so declare the lion was so busy with upstate harbor with the and bringing back the internal affair of the Muslims to to rest and so forth. So he didn't really have a lot of time to cater for these rituals and so forth. But Omar walked into the masjid in Ramadan, and he saw groups of Muslims praying individually. Okay.
so he decided to bring one of the Sahaba Oh, by, his name is
I forgot his name, the one who played jazz on him. I'm sorry, wave niqab. Actually, he brought over NACA and let the Muslims in taraweeh.
When he saw this, he saw the Muslims united behind one Imam. He made the statement metal with Ahadi Yeah, what a good beta This is. Now we come to the same question. Did the prophets Allah Allah Embrapa We are not here
in the masjid leading the Muslims. In one the narration two nights another narration three nights
Alon Omar Suleiman Bukhari there is no question about it. And we know why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam refrain from continuing this because he was afraid that this would become mandatory upon the Muslims. Now with the death of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam the revelation stopped. Okay, so the reason is already got the excuses already gone. So Omar, what did he do? He revived as soon as that was established by the prophets, Allah Allah, so there is no such a thing. Okay, so he didn't come with something, you know. Okay, on that. So we've clarified what is the sooner we've clarified what is better. We've also talked about the virtues of this month. Let's get into some of
the details and talk about some of the Vedas themselves. One of the the actions that one will classify as being a bit of should obviously you could clarify for us is like you mentioned, sort of
what is this prayer? What is its origin and what is this what is a ruling of it? Salatu raha is a Salah which people pray especially the first Juma of the month of August, so basically last Juma, okay. And it's between Muslims and Asia. This Salah was introduced
for the fourth century,
towards the end of the fourth century, after the Hijri after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So you tell me, where did you get this from? It's like the only window really when people started celebrating the birth of the prophets, Allah, okay. He centuries later, initiated century, centuries later, so now certainly has no origin whatsoever in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And anybody who simply promotes it, anybody, like, you know, you're promoting a beta. And this is, by the way, do not throw yourself during these sacred month is you do not run yourselves by committing shift. Do not run yourselves by committing disobedience of Allah
subhanaw taala. Also, do not run yourselves by committing an act of innovation, you shouldn't be doing that that actually is included in there. So the first one is the sort of revival secondly, some people will claim that the professor Selim was born on the first of this month of Roger, but is that correct? Or is that another fallacy?
You answer that it's it's a real sake. Okay, erratic statements. Really, the prophet SAW Selim, you know, was born on a Monday, the month of robiola. Well.
Roger, you know, so Pamela, maybe they need to compete with one another those who celebrate birthdays?
So what about some of the people who claim that on the 27th of the 25th night was the night that the processor received a Naboo revelation? Is this correct? And if so, or if not, what should we do about it? I'm aware of of lettuce Rama Rajan that night, but receiving the Nova is something that I you know, let's talk about this is well, it's not one Mirage is an event that happened, okay. It actually happened. So we will not denying
the journey from Mecca to Jerusalem. We're not denying in knowledge. But you're saying that
the event of lesser one Mirage took place on the 27th of Rajab, there is no single evidence in the Sunnah of the Prophet salla salam that even fabricated one. What about this? Even a made one made up one? There is nothing simply the the scholars and this is the statement of Abu Bakr Rahim Allah. He says these are statements which were made by us saucing the storytellers, okay, he will tell story in order to excite people so they can get some money at the end. So businessman business, basically and they are using the religion to do so. Not only this actually doing an act of worship, on the night of the 27th believing of a certain virtue again, brother tonight I hope that the viewers do
not you know,
get the impression that we're stopping people from doing a righteous deeds here. No, we're asking them to fulfill a shadow a number of Hamada rasulillah Okay, you know, there is nothing wrong with doing these acts. So yeah.
Giving sadaqa bring the 100 in regular basis and with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala. But don't tie to these dates don't tie to these events because this is what we call a beta. Okay, what about another type of action
It was done in the middle of Russia and it's known as solar. That would
man's Allahu be Hammons Fulton show me state you know that's a statement that you know that's what they write in the license plate in Missouri. Show me state you know, show me state show me the evidence. Yeah. poletto horahan acumen Contessa dipping out your evidence if you're truthful, unfortunately, you know, in the absence of knowledge, people do a lot of things and, and this, you know, brings this unity
a tabea. let you know that this is a statement, which was made by Herbalife and Ms author of the line, you know, follow the footsteps of the prophets, Allah said lambs do not introduce any act of worship into the religion. Because the moment that you do this, you're simply causing a lot of disunity in the oma act to this normally, an act of innovation comes at the expense of, you know, as soon as somehow here and there, and socially. I want to mention one other Act has been very common in Russia. But then I want to move on from from that subject into something a little bit more positive.
In the month of October, I think it is very common in many of our cultures across the world, that we tend to go and visit the graves.
Is that something also to innovation? Or is that possible? Well, again, you know, visiting the graves with the intention of Raja and the intention of benefiting the disease is simply unspoken off, we visit the grave because of us. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam explained this in a beautiful Hadith, he says, going to partner he took a man's era to Cabo de la sala wasallam, he says, indeed, I have previously banned you from visiting the graves. Now I'm giving you a permission to visit the grave. Why are Rasul Allah, for in a hat with a cure rocanville now, because it will remind the living with
off death, you know, it will remind you and me, when I go out there and stand on a grave of someone, you know, you maybe you spoke with then and you ate with and you walked with and he's no longer belong into this world. This is a reflection, you know, this is a moment of reflection that your faith is, is the same one is because kulu laughs in the epidemic, that the point I'm trying to make here is we can benefit the disease wherever we are, whenever we are, it doesn't have to be a budget. And it doesn't have to be at the grave site. But simply tying again, a virtue or a merit to Raja, pertaining to the visit, the visitation of the grave is something that has no basis whatsoever in
the Sharia. Okay, so let's put all of these actions to aside and let's come to Can I just make make one last statement? Sure, go ahead. Go ahead, just for the brothers and the sisters who may find what we're saying harsh on them, because we need to also realize the the cycle these brothers, a lot of them were brought up in this culture, you know, and that hearsay religion, that they never really verified their acts and so we say this because we care, you know, and, and, and we value your love for some loss or loss or lemon and and his son, and you should be an advocate for his way for his son. In no way we're trying to, you know, to be negative and give them a hard time and, and ridicule
them and make fun of them. And I hope this is not the impression that I'm giving out there. But I just want to let them hear one statement show Go ahead, which was made by an Imam Malik Rahim, Allah Malik of Northerners, one of the four emails, you know what he said? He said, Whoever introduces an act into this religion, and he admires it, and he likes doing it. He's claiming that Mohammed Salallahu alaihe salam has betrayed his messenger ship for kazama and now Mohammed and Katana reason why? Because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam stood on the top of the mountain, an artifact. And he recited this verse to his companions at the oma acmella to lacantina come
to our economy. Today I completed the revelation for you right okay. The religion is complete, you cannot cut, you cannot delete, he cannot paste. He cannot copy. It's done. The religion is there to take and practice. Now, if you want to burn wood, the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that what you should do, this is what you should do, but you engaging
In an act that is innovative and the religion you really make in that terrible statement, and we wouldn't like this for you at all. So it should know everybody I would assume everybody now is very eager to get ready and prepared themselves for Ramadan. Just like the in the beginning, we started off with a very beautiful door of the processor. So what sunon are actually the profit that can we do that will really prepare us for this blessing month starting from today. So panela Roger, I tell the brothers this. Roger is the month that you actually exercise refraining from sinning. Okay. That's the beginning. Right, you see, look at our Kadima though hate last Illa negation, then what?

same stuff or law or the recitation of the Quran
you know what he said? As an answer? I fell wooden with

The Quran is in addition, the Quran is a positive, but what you need to do is you need to remove what the bad out Okay, so in the month of exercise, what refraining from us refrain from since the feeling from backbiting good net already we're exercising this fella popular movie in unforeseeable do not drown yourself in the month of Roger rondon yourself meaning that you committing sherek without major or minor or wronging others committing injustices against others, or
committing a sin in secret between you and Allah subhanaw taala. So you need to refrain from those three. This is what you should do and add to this.

these acts of worship in a way and check it out we're coming towards the end of the program. And I want man that fast Mashallah.
What's going on in congressperson you enjoy yourself.
But I want to conclude on the note of the Koran. And I want you to give us some words of enthusiasm and positivity and how we can approach the Quran because everybody in Ramadan wants to finish the Quran or understand it better. And unfortunately, many of us when we're standing behind the Imams like yourself, and the humans and the people in the front row are crying. Our hearts are many people they don't understand what's going on. I want to cry as well. I'll give you the statement of man if not fan of the law.

Now a lot of the school as they say, because a lot of the table got engaged falsely, in giving sanctity to Roger, unnecessary, because we need to understand that this is carried out from jack Lee from the past, Roger that, you know that the people in general should do this. So he you are working so hard and Roger trying to do a lot in Roger thinking that this is and this is where the profit selling thing is Chabad is a month a lot of people don't they don't pay attention to. And this is a month in which our deeds are raised to Allah subhanaw taala.
