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

Okay, we'll carry on inshallah with our worship.

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

Ramadan, we were talking about the ethical the spiritual dimensions of Ramadan.

00:00:23--> 00:00:35

And I spoke about the last thing we talked about was the immune system, you know, Ramadan, or fasting, fasting. One of the blessings of fasting is that fasting is a protection,

00:00:36--> 00:00:58

immune, which protects you the process of a soul majan passing is a protection. And that's why the process of advise young men and women, especially men, he said, all young men get married, if you can't get married, married then fast, voluntary fast for fastening is a protection, it protects you, it increases your resistance,

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

resistance when it comes to temptations.

00:01:03--> 00:01:22

Right, so fasting is a great way of protecting one's self. However, the last thing you want to do is have or build a strong immune system, spiritually speaking, and have resistance against temptations. And be able to, to do good deeds during the day.

00:01:23--> 00:01:55

And then, and after you have cleanse yourself and you are sin free, or germs free, you go to a contaminated environment, plant yourself in there, and expect to maintain the same level of immunity, that doesn't happen. So if anyone has a plan, or if you know anyone that has a plan to fast during the day of the month of Ramadan, right, and then break his or her fast, and then during the night of Ramadan, watch more,

00:01:56--> 00:02:13

or watch satellite TV, with all the films that comes out of it, or go to brokers and stay until two or three in the morning at the hookah cafes and bars. That's and then they expect to come out of Ramadan with

00:02:15--> 00:02:54

with some benefits, you know, it doesn't happen. If you are at the hospital getting treated and hamdulillah purified and everything and you're very healthy, and you get all your immune shots and everything, right. And then you go and plant yourself, you put yourself or you place yourself around people who have contagious, you know, filthy diseases and problems and expect not to catch that, that doesn't happen. So it is very important that we protect, preserve whatever it is that we gained during the day and Ramadan, we protect it and not only do we have to protect it, but we need to reinforce it. And we need to enhance it during the night of Ramadan. And that is the beauty of

00:02:54--> 00:03:02

Ramadan because we have something called telawi prayer, which I think all of us we should, we should make our intention not to miss telawi at all

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

right. And whatever you gain during the month of Ramadan, you make sure throughout the year after Ramadan, that you preserve it.

00:03:13--> 00:03:20

With that comes another dimension or another benefit that we get from Ramadan, which is the moral dimension.

00:03:21--> 00:03:53

Now, as bad as it is, every regard every act of worship is designed to teach us and to reinforce morality. It came to empower us make us better people and and make us have better character. For example, for instance, Salah is a purification, it makes you a better person, and it forbids from evil. Right? So I must have said that in the Quran. Likewise, fasting has the same, the same effect on us. So a data in general does make us better people morally speaking.

00:03:55--> 00:04:02

Also, it puts you at a heightened level of moral commitment and moral standards.

00:04:03--> 00:04:10

Especially fasting. And that's exactly why the process I've said it, I can assume he almost only had it come if one of you fast

00:04:12--> 00:04:35

food What if so, let him not say or use any kind of filthy language, right? Anything that has to do with anything that is indecent or inappropriate type of language, let him not say any of these things, nor should he transgress against people and insult people or use it, you know, or offend people verbally. verbal abuse is not allowed while you're fasting.

00:04:36--> 00:04:43

So and then the Prophet said, For instead but who had an O shakima. Someone might say I didn't start it.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

He insulted me so I have to answer. The Prophet said if someone provokes you, or insults you, right? Don't answer back with anything other than fairly upon in nissa M. let one of you say I am

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

Testing,

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

I am testing.

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

So you have to answer some people say I have to answer, I can't help it. Okay, this is what you need to tell that person I am passing.

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

That's it? Of course we don't have you shouldn't say that way.

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

Now someone might say, wait a minute, why do you need to tell the other person that you are fasting?

00:05:19--> 00:05:52

Why didn't he tell that you're fasting? And are we are you telling that person? Are you telling yourself? Part of it is that you're telling yourself, you reminding yourself, I'm at a higher level, higher grounds. I mean, I should not, or I choose not to get down to this level, and you're telling that person, I'm above this, and I'm not going to get down to your level. So I'm not going to answer you because I'm fasting. And you're not, of course, you're not going to say I'm not going to answer you, all you're going to say is I am passing in a slime walk away from the situation.

00:05:58--> 00:06:27

There are many qualities that are learned and enforced during while fasting. In fact, fasting song shares, the word Psalm in Arabic, the definition for the word song, or the meaning or the root word, where someone comes from, hasn't seen meaning a server server is a moral value, and ethical value, patience, or steadfastness. And that's why the the month of fasting is called shadow. So the shadow of summer,

00:06:28--> 00:07:01

the month of Ramadan is called the month of fasting or the month of sub endurance, patience. This is one of those qualities of in addition to compassion, you know, feeling of with you know, in addition to many qualities that we learn, are, and also are enforcing the muscle from a blood, there are of course, many etiquette during the month of Ramadan, that we have to adapt, many etiquettes fine model etiquettes that we have to abide by. During the month of Ramadan, we have to exercise during the month of Ramadan.

00:07:03--> 00:07:21

But I think the greatest of all qualities is controlled. That's what the motor from about teaches us the most control that you are in control, you're in charge you are you can actually affect you can control your attitude. And your attitude determines how you react to things, if you choose to let

00:07:22--> 00:07:29

hunger and if all you're going to get out of your fasting is hunger, and you choose to let that affect you in a way where you just become

00:07:31--> 00:07:48

a mad person. Some people are just agitated, very angry, very upset, in the month of Ramadan. And fasting makes them angry, I think they choose to be angry, this person is not supposed to do to make you angry. It is not it is supposed to humble you. But if you feel that you are not

00:07:51--> 00:08:09

that you shouldn't feel hunger, you shouldn't feel pain, you shouldn't suffer. And you feel that you're entitled of everything that you desire. Then, of course, when you fast or when you sacrifice, you learn to be agitated and angry. All of that has to do with your attitude towards fasting. There are some people who are very

00:08:10--> 00:08:16

passionate about fasting because they have gratitude. They're very thankful for that patient for the opportunity. And that's what the law says, Well,

00:08:17--> 00:08:26

one of the values you learn as you become a thankful person. And there are some people, I think their arrogance or ego kicks in. And that makes them agitated

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

and angry and upset.

00:08:31--> 00:08:46

So they're always in a bad mood, very negative attitudes towards fasting to begin with is internal, but it surfaces and there are treatments or the reaction with other people, they're there. And then when you ask ask them, Why are you angry? I'm hungry.

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

Hungry equals anger angry? I don't know.

00:08:51--> 00:09:26

So what hunger is not supposed to make you angry. anger comes with arrogance and ego. hungry. Hunger is supposed to humbling him, you know, humility comes out of out of that, that sense of hunger. So maybe there's something cognitive Valley is speaking of that maybe there's something wrong with the weight, the person not proceeds, but the way the person relates to fasting. So this is very, very important. What are the etiquettes that maybe we should remember is making sure that we

00:09:28--> 00:09:36

we follow the adapt, for example, when we come to the mission because we become frequent visitors of the mission. So when we come to the mission, certain adapt that we have to bear in mind.

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

Does anyone want to share from your own

00:09:41--> 00:09:53

personal experience? What are the type of model or etiquette that we should remember in the month of Ramadan? Or in the month of fasting as we come to the machine or as we interact? Yes.

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

Okay.

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

showing respect to the opposite gender men and women show respect to one another one of those things, of course, Ramadan, we have higher numbers of people. And starting from tonight actually, and we'll keep it because now that the activities are attracting more and more people, and

00:10:16--> 00:10:27

you know, we don't have a lot of room to play with in terms of the design of the message, but that's what that's what Ramadan gate is all about. So that's why I show the interest of the sisters will be

00:10:28--> 00:10:45

in from from the front. But indeed, one of those things that we need to watch for is how we relate to one another. And being sensitive to the opposite gender and making sure that we we preserve, preserve the dignity and the honor of the opposite gender, especially the brothers.

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

For the sisters.

00:10:54--> 00:11:15

backbiting the process of love is seldom said if people continue to backbite or lie or gossip during the month of Ramadan, then a loss of habitat is not in need of their hunger, starving yourself and causing you yourself thirst and standing up at night in exhausting yourself will benefit you will not benefit you in any way or fashion.

00:11:16--> 00:11:46

So you cannot diminish your reward by by continuing to engage in this kind of behavior. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked about or the Sahaba said there's this woman Mashallah very righteous, she prays she fast, he does all these things, but she gossips and she continues to hurt or backbite or speak bad things about her other getting the other woman in the community, her neighbors, so the Prophet said he have enough she's in hellfire.

00:11:48--> 00:12:01

She's in hellfire. Although apparently she seems to be what. And a lot of people engage in this, this practice because they're they they want to kill time. Plenty of time. They want to kill time. So they're on the phone, most of the you know.

00:12:04--> 00:12:10

So that's one thing that we need to watch out for anything else any etiquettes or laughter that we should remember the motherboard? Yes.

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

reading more for ad indeed. Okay. Anything else?

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

Something has to do with Yes.

00:12:21--> 00:12:33

No movies or TV. Just make sure that you don't expose yourself to some sometimes people do upset what the effect of turabian for and by the things that they watch. Are they engaging? Yes.

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

Yes.

00:12:41--> 00:12:51

not allow people to provoke you is like, Okay. Okay, one of those things that happened, and I'm a frequent visitors to the machine. So we need to remember the etiquette of the massage.

00:12:52--> 00:12:55

Part of the etiquette of the massage it has to do with keeping.

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

Organization. Right, one of those things that take most people off in the month of Ramadan is what the chaos that is caused by Muslims, when they come to the machine, whether it be in the parking lot, or the shoe racks, or inside Amazon.

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

And it's the same people it's us. If we go to any

00:13:20--> 00:13:26

organization, or any institution, or any place, or even a church.

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

To get down.

00:13:30--> 00:13:45

We go anywhere, we follow the system of that place. We don't do some of the things that we do when we come to our massage. But something happens when we the minute we drive into the parking lot of the machine. Some some somehow,

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

somewhere on on the gate of the machine, we lose or we leave behind all these standards. And we can't do this. We can do this.

00:13:56--> 00:14:05

By the way, I've never heard I've never come across any narration or any report in any book that during the time of the Sahaba that the believers had crisis of slippers.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

And when they came out of them, really Have you ever heard this?

00:14:12--> 00:14:19

They used to wear shoes and slippers. Nor have I ever heard that their camel in their horses outside the machine we're going out of control.

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

But when you come to the machine

00:14:29--> 00:15:00

I mean even when it comes to children or bad ones sometimes misbehaving in the machine, you heard some of those narrations. But when it comes to things that everybody does, you never heard this. So how can our cars sometimes are out of control or our shoes are out of control? So shall we have plenty of shoe racks we have plenty of space and we have parking lots around. So people have to basically follow the system and make sure that this is a message. Make sure that when you come to the machine or you leave the machine you don't do anything that will diminish or will will take away from your reward that you can

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

for

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

coming in.

00:15:20--> 00:15:30

So the dress code, also the dress code, the dress code, whether it's for us or for our children, when we come to the machine, we come to the machine to gain, not to lose.

00:15:32--> 00:15:46

So make sure that you don't forget, or you know, to dress up your children, and in fact, must have a plan for the Xena to come and the convention we should dress up every time we'll go to Mrs. Dress up nicely. Speaking of dressing up nicely, we should also, you know, come in very good, you know,

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

looking good smelling good. You know what I mean? Finally, I want to say one thing, the month of Ramadan, everybody eats very heavy meals.

00:15:59--> 00:16:15

And it is quite disturbing because I did sometimes, you know, pull out of the tub while use it as an eating this alone. And I go and I pray in between, you know, last thing I want to think about while I'm praying is what you ate, because you're standing next to me.

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

You know, some people, you can just like figure out the recipe of what they ate.

00:16:22--> 00:16:27

But the worst thing is, the worst thing is, if it involves garlic or onions.

00:16:28--> 00:16:36

So let's just keep that line and make sure that we try to control that. A lot of data.

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

That's what I was talking about.

00:16:47--> 00:17:25

In addition to that, of course, there are the social, there's a social dimension. This, this sense of belonging gets satisfied in the month of Ramadan. One of the exciting things that I think I suggest, especially on the weekends to bring your children, here's what I suggest week now, tomorrow, it will be very late. On the weekends. Children are welcome. Those who don't go to school, of course, we have babysitting. But keep in mind that we don't want the month of Ramadan to disturb the schedule of your family, because sometimes some families come here and their children stay late until 11 o'clock. And then the next day they have to go to school, you don't need to do that they're

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

not obligated to pray our way. But on the weekend, bring them

00:17:29--> 00:17:29

and

00:17:30--> 00:18:12

prepare them, make sure that they have the proper mindset or understanding as to what the message is what it is that we do here. And that they take this process seriously. But Ramadan, nonetheless, just satisfy that sense of belonging. Because if you feel that you're not alone, everybody's fasting, everybody's fasting. And also, it strengthens the family ties, right, because everybody knows, they're having meals together. One suggestion, by the way, that will also reduce the parking problem, whether it be in this message or any other method, but at the same time, it will benefit us as families. And also it will be beneficial to the environment, carpool. I don't understand why a

00:18:12--> 00:18:32

family of two or three or four. And each individual drives by themselves. I even found you know, I find it very, you know, shocking when the when the husband and the wife, everybody drives separately, because he wants to hang out with his friends after. This is time for us to bond. And after tomorrow, we should go home anyways, you're not supposed to hang out.

00:18:34--> 00:19:03

So maybe one thing that we can do as a family is drive together, carpool together, you know, come together and live together as a family on the way we can have discussions and on the way back in or maybe they can brief each other on what happened catch up with what happened in the school or what happened during the day on the way back. Okay, how did you feel about a lot tonight? What did you like how was the harder is that and so forth. So it's a great opportunity for the for the for the family to bond sense of unity when the Muslims come together

00:19:05--> 00:19:38

and pray together as a parallel we may be divided or we may have all kinds of differences amongst us, but somehow the month of Ramadan salata, telawi, kind of congregational prayer, do I bring this all together. And one of the beautiful things that happened in the month of Ramadan is that people pray for themselves and for the entire Ummah and for those who are suffering in the world. So this is one thing that we need to be also aware of. There is the physical aspect or the health benefits that come with fasting. Fasting is an opportunity for us to cleanse our system and purify it.

00:19:42--> 00:19:58

It is also a great opportunity to quit some unhealthy habits, a great opportunity, but those habits cannot be. See the problem is sometimes people quit certain habits and adapt other bad habits. So in the month of Ramadan, many people gained weight

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

Really, I mean, a lot of people gain weight they over eat.

00:20:05--> 00:20:47

They over consume, they consume too much sugar and too much calories and too much cholesterol, they don't watch their diet because they think justify that and it throws their system off the month of Ramadan fasting actually is supposed to reset your system. It's supposed to reset your physically reset everything helps you whether it be you know, especially the digestive system. But what happens many doctors say many people develop all kinds of problems in the month of Ramadan after the month of Ramadan. Because that because they overeat or they overindulge. Or they give up certain habits like smoking, but they develop other habits. So we need to be very careful.

00:20:48--> 00:21:09

And understand that once of Ramadan is not so maybe tomorrow, we don't have to panic and go to brokers go to a play back and have a stockpile of Ramadan supplies. We don't need to do this, they will continue to bring in enough products for us. And I don't think we should eat more than we eat normally. I mean in the month of Ramadan Why do people eat more than they do?

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

Just Just because we fast it's the same body

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

data.

00:21:18--> 00:21:57

Also, if you're feeling how you feel optimism, contentment, inner peace, all these feelings should make you feel better. health wise physically, you should make you should feel lighter. I know all of us are most of us we struggle with fasting the first two or three days. But somehow Allah Allah created this body in this system in a way that it adjusts real quick. So after the first three days or you adjust, let's say, in fact, you know many of us have challenges or have problems after Ramadan, right? I don't know how many of you that I owe is on a day, my system gets messed up, because it got so used to the schedule in the month of October. And that's why many people jump back

00:21:57--> 00:22:08

into fasting bypassing the 60 days of Ramadan right after the database. Because they want their system to remain and you feel a lot healthier, you feel lighter, you feel healthier, you feel stronger.

00:22:11--> 00:22:27

Now, so also things like feeling you know, the, you know, feeling the moral accomplishment, self control, that leads to more confidence, all these things, being aware of them is very good because it makes you a better and healthier person. Now,

00:22:28--> 00:23:03

I want to talk about real quick about the technical part of fasting. Many of us are familiar with this part. But we have to cover it. Fasting is an obligation. Fasting in the month of Ramadan is an obligation. We find that in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you have Latina M and o booty Valley Muslim okay. makuti vida Latina publikum la la quinta, tough one, verse 183 of Swords dakara Oh, you will believe fasting is prescribed to you, as it was prescribed to those who are before you. prescribes means that it became fun.

00:23:04--> 00:23:37

So it became fun and this revelation came down in the second year of the hatred of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then how do we know this is general but how do we know the month of Ramadan? Because the very following verse, Allah Subhana, Allah says Shahada, Ramadan, and Lydia was interviewed for the month of Ramadan during which the Quran was revealed. Then, in the same verse, Allah says permission, Mashallah, for the Assam, Whosoever witnesses the month, let him pass it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also to reinforce this set in the Hadith, that Islam was established on five pillars, one of which is a fasting of the month of Ramadan. So it is an

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

obligation on every Muslim that reached the age of puberty.

00:23:44--> 00:23:53

Because a lot of families don't teach this to their kids, some high schoolers or some brothers and sisters, young brothers and sisters, they don't fast because they don't think it's an obligation.

00:23:55--> 00:24:07

It becomes an obligation puberty, either by reaching the age of puberty, which could take place anywhere between 10 and 15. Or by reaching the age of 15, according to the strongest of the opinion of the scholars,

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

whichever comes first.

00:24:11--> 00:24:48

puberty or 15. After that the person is obligated. So it may be also a good idea to teach the kids when they're when they're younger than 10. As as young as you know, teach them to start training, then maybe fast half a day, you know, this this year, you fast maybe half of the month, every other day or the weekend in the following week, in it. And as far as I remember, those of us who didn't have to struggle with fasting during our teenage years, we started fasting the whole month at the age of maybe seven or even less than that. Maybe some people I don't know. Anyone here fast did fast the whole month at the age of five, for example, who did fast the whole month of datafied What about

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

the first time you fasted the whole month of Ramadan? Were you six? Who was six, seven? Yeah, I think I was seven. You know when I passed. Great. You didn't you won't have any problem after that. with it.

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

Someone might say, well, you don't know these kids that are born and raised here. They go to school and they joined the football team and the basketball team and

00:25:09--> 00:25:18

the Sahaba. My wife fought battles. And that first one, the one that they fasted when they fought the battle, but that was their first Ramadan ever.

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

Most of us have a word Congress,

00:25:23--> 00:25:28

our reverse the reverse brothers and sisters who revert to Islam, they do it.

00:25:30--> 00:25:38

One of the things was a sister that accepted Islam, someone came and said, Oh, my God, now she has to deal with the month of October. I said, Well, if she thinks like you, yeah.

00:25:43--> 00:25:51

But that's not she gave up a lot of things. She made the sacrifice and crossover. We have some some of us we look at it as a burden, you know,

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

negative attitude, or what changes are causing stinking thinking.

00:25:59--> 00:26:34

But someone who already made the sacrifices looking forward to it. Looking forward for the break, did he know that two years ago, we had a brother that came, who we had a person that prayed gamma laid with us on the 27th night, who wasn't even a Muslim, and He fasted 27 days, He fasted with a Muslim, it was a non Muslim, very liberal guy who believes that everybody has the right to exist. And very nice person, very nice person, he said, and he said, as a sign of solidarity and support for the Muslim, I'm going to fast what I'm about and He fasted with the Muslims every single day,

00:26:36--> 00:26:36

every single day.

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

He's not even a Muslim.

00:26:42--> 00:26:46

So fasting is an obligation, fasting is an obligation.

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

Now, when it comes to the fasting of the month of Ramadan,

00:26:56--> 00:27:28

very important thing that I need to remind everyone with, is that when you fast the month of Ramadan, you have to have the intention from the night before it's obligatory, to have the intention from the night before. So you need to fit to find out when Ramadan starts. You can't wake up in the morning, let's say, or you know, at five o'clock to pray for God. Right? And then you praise her and after fudger, you don't want to call anyone because you don't want to bother them at seven o'clock after sunrise. You call somebody like, Is today the first of Ramadan? Because I haven't eaten anything.

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

Should I keep pressing? Or? And then they say, Yeah,

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

well, you have to keep fasting. But guess what?

00:27:40--> 00:28:16

You have to repeat that day. Because you didn't have your intention from the night before. And you can't have a conditional intention, where you say, Okay, I'm fasting tomorrow, if it is the first of Ramadan? No, you have to know. So, so find out when Ramadan begins. And then you have to make your intention for that day. And you have to make your intention for every day, from the night before. Does that mean that you have to verbalize that that intention, intention is something that you have intention is a mindset. It is in the heart, you don't have to verbalize it. In fact, you shouldn't, because you don't need to inform us of our data about something that he already knows.

00:28:17--> 00:28:36

All that is that intention means that you have to be aware of what you're about to do, and the status of what it is that you're about to do. But in Ramadan, you have to have it from the night before anytime from the night before before fudger. Right? You have to determine that you're fasting the next day. So you have to have that determination.

00:28:37--> 00:28:47

And what does fasting mean from DOD from DOD, not from insect not from one hour before dawn from dawn, whenever Dawn is until sunset, you don't eat

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

or consume anything.

00:28:51--> 00:28:57

Right, nor you drink so No, no solid or liquid consumed through your mouth through your

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

you can't get it into basically your body, right through any of those means

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

nor engage in sexual intercourse during

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

during the day of the month of Ramadan, from dawn until sunset.

00:29:17--> 00:29:50

So that's what fasting is unless you have some some atomo CMS in a lay smoking is one of those issues that was determined by scholars now to be something that breaks the fat so if someone smokes, they break their fast anything other than that it doesn't break or nullify or invalidate your fasting one loss of data and a loss of health Allah knows best because some people might ask what about if I get like my flu shot while fasting? It doesn't break your fast. What about bleeding? doesn't break your fast.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

What about inhalers? There's debate amongst the scholars Some believe that it doesn't break your fast. I'll just say that it doesn't break your fast will log data Adam

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

Check one with Amy's opinion on this is that it doesn't break your fast inhalers.

00:30:05--> 00:30:12

But if you were talking about like sprays or anything that you're spraying into your throat, that does break your fast, so you can't use that. Right?

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

What's that?

00:30:16--> 00:30:22

brushing your teeth doesn't break your fast as, as long as you're not swallowing or your

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

because some people like the tastes of their,

00:30:27--> 00:30:41

the flavor is just amazing. Like, so. So these things don't. And we're going to talk about other examples of shallow, I'm just telling you that what breaks fast is eating, drinking smoking or sexual relations

00:30:45--> 00:30:48

when it starts every day from

00:30:49--> 00:30:57

the time of surgery. Now, there are two ways of calculating the time of pleasure. Two common ways. One way that considers

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

when the sun is

00:31:05--> 00:31:09

okay, it was right there. The numbers were right there and

00:31:11--> 00:31:14

when the sun is I believe,

00:31:15--> 00:31:20

not 19 degrees doesn't make sense. How many degrees?

00:31:21--> 00:31:26

Yes, yes. 15? Yeah, you're right, exactly. Okay. One considers when the sun is

00:31:28--> 00:31:34

19 degrees 18 to 19 degrees below the horizon. So if this is the horizon,

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

you know, the sun is 18 or 19 degrees below the horizon.

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

That's the time for pressure.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

Someone might say what are you talking about?

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

You know, did I lose you?

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

Okay, you don't have to worry about this.

00:31:56--> 00:31:59

Does everyone remember that the earth is globe is like.

00:32:00--> 00:32:05

Now what happens is the Earth rotates? The sun also moves shifts, right now.

00:32:06--> 00:32:51

At night, where is the sun? It's coming up, right? By Friday, it comes up it rises from the east. Now before it rises, it's below the horizon, the horizon, meaning that line that the last line that we see ahead of us, like that's, you know, what? No, you don't you don't see it. I don't want you to see it. I'm just saying that one of one of the ways of 111 way is they consider failure, failure to be when the sun is 90 degrees below the horizon, which means that it's, they're not guessing No, no, they're not guessing they can calculate it to the second. they calculate it. They know they know what that is. Other opinion considers federal solder when the sun is only 15 below the horizon. And

00:32:51--> 00:33:08

that's why you might find some calendars, calendar, I'm just trying to explain to you how some calendars may be different from other calendars. So one calendar might say February is at 545. While another calendar says that failure is at 530. So they might have that, that that much difference between them.

00:33:09--> 00:33:47

If you want to go with the one that says it's 19 degrees, that's fine, just to be on the safe side, that is fine, if that's what you want to do. But that is the time when you start fasting. And when you stop eating and drinking. As to this idea, or this notion or this habit that people develop of stopping eating and drinking 15 minutes or an hour before that time that has no foundation. It is not of the son of the Prophet realizing. In fact, it's against the sort of the promise of a lot isn't it? Some people say we only do this to be on the safe side. You don't need to be on the safe side. The Prophet said my alma would be in good state so long they delayed the hood eating they

00:33:47--> 00:34:08

delayed. In fact bilad used to make a dent remember how in advance you would hear a Salatu Hiraman unknown biller is to make an event to wake up people for support or to make people realize that failure is about to come in. If you need to play your wizard. If you need to make it so far get ready for failure if you need to, you know

00:34:09--> 00:34:44

ETFs or bilities to do that, so some people started quitting eating and drinking when they heard the data v net. So the process of a lot instead of told them inability to beat a banana makes a dent too early is during the night for Kudo was horrible. So eat and drink. You may eat and drink Have you ever been in the army Maktoum until you hear the second event which was made by Evan omec to some of the competitors were asked how much time was there between VLAN and

00:34:45--> 00:34:49

they said the length that you would need to recite 50 verses from the Quran.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Very short time maybe 50. You know in Mexico when you go to Mecca, you hear the first event and then maybe 25 minutes later this this the second or the actual event for failure.

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

takes place. That's about 25 minutes. So the Prophet didn't say, Okay, yeah, that will put you on the safe side stop. It's only 25 minutes. No, he said, eat and drink.

00:35:12--> 00:35:36

So, determine what time for your actual beginning of the time is. That is the cutoff time. You can eat and drink beyond that. But don't obligate yourself with anything okay? That's not of the sooner the Prophet said my alma would be in good state so long they delayed the hook. And then when it comes to breaking your fast if Bob as soon as the sun sets, or as soon as you hear the event,

00:35:37--> 00:35:46

it is time for you to break your fast. Some people say no, no, no, no, no beat, let's be on the safe side until we see the stars until it gets very dark.

00:35:47--> 00:35:52

until it gets very dark, you may go into a room and turn off the light. That's pretty dark.

00:35:54--> 00:35:58

Who said that? Where does it say until it gets very dark? What if it's cloudy?

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

No, it has nothing to do with with getting dark. It has to do with sunset. Some people go to the extreme of sometimes not eating, not breaking their fast until after they pray. Some halala if you can pray, if it's time for, for Muslim prayer, then it's time to break your fast. If it's not time for Madrid, then your Salah is not valid. If you can pray, then you can eat. And the Prophet said you should eat ASAP. You should break your fast because it shows it shows that you are devoted that you eat and drink when Allah says it's time you eat and drink. And when Allah says stop, you stop.

00:36:38--> 00:37:07

Right? So this business of people thinking although no virtue is to put yourself on the same side on the safe side, unfortunately Subhana Allah, it is of the size of the deviant groups and the extremists of this ummah, these kind of habits are of their, of their habits. So they, they say no, no, no be on the safe side. And they're very strict with those things. But when it comes to the essence of Islam, to the core of Islam, they are very loose, and they and they don't follows them.

00:37:09--> 00:37:11

Right. So we need to remember this in shaba.

00:37:19--> 00:37:23

Now every day in Ramadan, as we said, Allah Subhana Allah mission in the end,

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

who

00:37:27--> 00:37:51

fasting is mandatory upon every Muslim who is sane, adult, meaning they reach the age of puberty, or they're 15. Able has the physical ability, if you don't have the physical ability for any reason, not eating or drinking affects your health, whether you have you know, blood pressure issues, or you have to take certain medications

00:37:52--> 00:38:12

to to remain well, or if not eating causes, drops, you know, causes a drop in your sugar level, if you're diabetic or any of those reasons, and you can't fast then the ability, the physical ability is not there, these people are relieved from the obligation, and they may compensate for it by giving the the the video or the photo.

00:38:13--> 00:38:33

And residents meaning someone who's not traveling. So if you're traveling a distance of hustler, then you may break your fast, right? If you're traveling, so you're going from here to the east coast, or you're going from here from here to Arizona, or you know, then you may break your fast. Other than that,

00:38:34--> 00:38:46

you know, people who don't fall into any people who have all these conditions, fasting becomes mandatory becomes obligatory on them. So if someone tells me what if I'm part of the basketball team,

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

if you if you're saying

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

if you're saying First of all, if you're saying you wouldn't join the basketball team, but anyway,

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

if you were saying and if you're an adult, and if you're able, and if you're a resident, you're not traveling with your team, you have to pass Yes.

00:39:15--> 00:39:25

You may break your fast. Once you initiate or you start your travel, you may break your fast. So if someone has a flight at 12 at noon,

00:39:27--> 00:39:59

they have to stay awake affecting that day. They can't say oh I'm traveling at noon. So I might as well just eat and have breakfast that I have or something like that on my way to the airport. No, you cannot break your fast until you shots you actually take off now because there is always the possibility of the flight getting canceled. You cancelling or changing your plans. So you are only able to fast or shorten your prayer once you initiate the travel. Okay, so when you start the travel Now, let's say your flight is at six o'clock.

00:40:01--> 00:40:15

25 minutes before sunset, it doesn't make sense for in my opinion for you to do to break your fast. No, because the only 25 minutes, might as well just, you know, finish your fast. Yes.

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

Anyone ever smell this

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

slide is going to be very hard like,

00:40:31--> 00:40:31

what

00:40:33--> 00:40:35

it looks like which airlines you fly on?

00:40:38--> 00:40:42

And also I should ask which, which which fair which Kevin, do you use first class? Or?

00:40:43--> 00:40:46

You wouldn't say this if you travel Northwest

00:40:47--> 00:40:50

or Southwest? or any of the ones that have West?

00:40:52--> 00:41:03

No, actually, that's a very good question. Traveling nowadays is convenient. Why break your fast? Why shorten your prayer? And the old days they used to use demos and use us?

00:41:05--> 00:41:09

Okay, well, before there were any of those means, during the time of the Sahaba?

00:41:11--> 00:41:30

They said, what is the cause? Or what is what gives us the permission? Is it convenience? Or is it the hardship? They already determined that that is not the reason why a loss of health data that may be part of the package. But that's not the reason although some have said you may break your fast.

00:41:31--> 00:41:32

So what is the

00:41:34--> 00:41:46

the reason for breaking in the past, or forgiving us this permission, they said a safer traveling period, whether it be very comfortable and luxurious, or very hard and tedious.

00:41:48--> 00:42:25

So they already determined this, even during those days. And they don't even know that it was gonna be like this nowadays, they already determined that so long you're traveling no matter how comfortable it because in those days, they used to have some of those first class first class camels. Yeah, very, very first. But that's not that's not the reason. As long as you're traveling is a permission from Allah. Someone might ask, okay, what is better? Well, it's it depends. If you're able, if you're not able, but, you know, I would say that following you know, taking advantage of the permission of Allah Subhana. Allah is something that a lot of loves

00:42:27--> 00:42:29

a lot some heart that loves for you to take advantage of his permission.

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

Yes.

00:42:44--> 00:42:59

No, no. Well, the valid opinion on that is that it is sooner it's a permission. But it's not a, you're not, you're not obligated to shorten the salaat. There is an opinion, but that is not the strongest of the of the opinions.

00:43:03--> 00:43:06

If you wish to fast, it's your choice.

00:43:07--> 00:43:31

But here's what you should, you should not fast while traveling, thinking that that is more virtuous. That's better. So let's say you're traveling with someone who takes advantage of the traveling on breaks is fast because he wants to. He's appreciating the rocks of Allah gave him and wants to follow the Sunnah. And you're looking at him going, like stuck for a while they

00:43:33--> 00:43:34

say, what is this?

00:43:35--> 00:43:36

Right?

00:43:37--> 00:43:40

You shouldn't look down upon someone that that that is,

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

was that

00:43:49--> 00:43:55

if you're always traveling, no house if you're always traveling, and you don't want to deal with making up those days fast.

00:43:59--> 00:44:10

Yeah, I know, I know. They're traveling all the time. So they know because easy, you have to make this up. So if you know that you're going to be traveling for the next 10 months because of your work. And you don't want that's fast.

00:44:12--> 00:44:39

But again, you have again, you have the option. That's what we're trying to say. You're not obligated. Also women should not fast during their menstruation periods, or postpartum bleeding after birth after childbirth. Until that is clear. Now in this case is not a permission, but it's an obligation. So, so no one no no one can come. So fast passing is not valid. They will have to make up those days.

00:44:44--> 00:44:49

What breaks your fast what are the things that invalidate or breach ones fast?

00:44:56--> 00:44:56

The following

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

There are two types of

00:45:03--> 00:45:24

validators of fasting one type of activities or incident that that invalidate your fast they require a lot what this means making up making up those the missed days. So there are those that require only a lot. And there are those that require Kava, as well as

00:45:28--> 00:46:10

they invalidate fasting and they require to fata casada means an act of atonement, which means something that you have to do to make up or to redeem yourself more than making a date. So eating or, and or drinking, deliberately, intentionally, which rules out unintentional eating and drinking. So you forgot, you're not used to it the first two days, the first three days, or, you know, you're out of it, and you took a sip of water, or you found a bottle of Gatorade somewhere, and they just finished the whole thing, forgetting that you're fasting, that doesn't invalidate your fasting. It's a gift from a loss of habitat.

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

And fortunate are those who get those kind of gifts from Allah.

00:46:15--> 00:46:20

Please do not ask me what if I see a Muslim drink? Should I remind him? Or should I let him enjoy the gift of Allah?

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

Don't ask me this question.

00:46:24--> 00:46:33

But generally speaking, as a general rule, say out of anything that is not of your business, mind your own business. Generally speaking, generally speaking, it has nothing to do with it.

00:46:35--> 00:46:40

But you know, you should, you should, of course, in my mind that person, but don't go like a stop what a lot.

00:46:41--> 00:46:42

Because they might choke you out.

00:46:45--> 00:46:49

Number two, intentional vomiting, which rules out.

00:46:50--> 00:47:17

And if you if the person vomits, because they're sick, or they, you know, something happened, or they saw something, and, and, and they didn't, they It was not self inflicted, or they did not, they did not do it intentionally, it doesn't break their fast. But if they do it intentionally, by sticking something down their throat, or you know, they do it intentionally, or it's sitting and thinking about something very disgusting until they vomited, because they wanted to vomit intentionally, that does break the fast.

00:47:21--> 00:47:38

Of course, you know, menstrual bleeding or, you know, that also, if it occurs during the day, it's invalid days of fasting, that whole day is gone. If it occurs during the day, if it stops during the day, also, that day doesn't count if they don't begin the day, you know. So that also breaks the fast.

00:47:42--> 00:47:54

And ejaculation for reasons other than sexual intercourse also invalidates the fat the fast without a father. Now, the act that invalidates fasting, but cafardo is required.

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

That is

00:47:57--> 00:48:01

intentional sexual intercourse during the day during the period of fasting.

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

But it involves additional penalty as well.

00:48:09--> 00:48:25

And those penalties are default according to this order. Setting a slave free freeing a slave, if not capable, for financial reasons, or because of the gap by the slave. Then the second option is to fast 60 consecutive days.

00:48:27--> 00:48:37

If the person is not capable, because they physically cannot do that, then feeding 60 poor people, one average meal each.

00:48:39--> 00:48:43

This is this is the the kafala for it.

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

Now

00:48:50--> 00:48:58

Now I know we have a lot of questions. So I'm gonna just leave this we have a lot of questions. What about pregnant women? If a woman is pregnant or is breastfeeding,

00:48:59--> 00:49:01

they may break their fast

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

and all they have to do is make up

00:49:06--> 00:49:29

those days make them up. Right? Of course there is the opinion that if she's afraid for somebody school of thought that if she's afraid for her self, then she doesn't make up. She's afraid for this for the child. Then she makes up and she gives a video video is feeding miskeen half the amount that you give for the cat and fitted for every day.

00:49:30--> 00:49:59

Right so that's that's one opinion. Right? But the general rule is a woman who's breastfeeding just like someone who's not feeling you know who's Ill have to make up those days. Right. Number two people who get sick during the month of Ramadan and have to break their fast they make up those days. All they have to do is make up those days ASAP after the month of Ramadan. Likewise, you know women who get their period during the month of Ramadan, they make up all mister

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

days after the month of Ramadan, and before the next normal blood ASAP, right. Now, what about people who have chronic diseases or illnesses, they cannot fast at all for you know, not this year, not the following year. So chronic disease, so they break their fast and for everyday in the month of Ramadan, they feed a miskeen have a thought, which is half the amount that you give for the cattle. They feed him his skin for every day.

00:50:28--> 00:50:33

Right? So if it's 29 days, 29 days, it was 30 days, 30 days.

00:50:35--> 00:50:36

whatever amount of days

00:50:37--> 00:50:38

they missed.

00:50:43--> 00:50:43

Okay.

00:50:48--> 00:50:52

You see, the amount of the carton filter is one saw five is about

00:50:54--> 00:51:02

no 10 pounds? No, no, no, I'm not talking about amount. I'm not talking about monetary value, I'm talking about the amount of food

00:51:03--> 00:51:04

saw is what?

00:51:05--> 00:51:26

Maybe five kilos or something? What, what do we get, like maybe 11 pounds, something like that? I think it's about 11 pounds. But it depends, I take it back, it depends on the object that you're weighing. Because something that is very dense, it's gonna weigh much more than besar basically the measurement unit, right? A measurement unit that is equivalent to

00:51:27--> 00:51:54

forehand 4442 hands full of that object that you're weighing, or that you're measuring its value as its volume as opposed to weight. Right? So it depends on the object, half of that, which would be Mr. Which would be two handfuls of whatever it is. So it depends on the type of food, if as much due date, then it will obviously cost more than rice.

00:51:55--> 00:52:01

You know, whatever it is that you're feeding, but on an average, I say, you know, $5

00:52:02--> 00:52:08

if you want to translate it to $5. So for the whole month of Ramadan, five times 30, that's 150.

00:52:20--> 00:52:27

No, no, we're not talking about the Kalman filter, which are fast, and they are not fasting all of the manifesting. You have for people who are not fasting in the family?

00:52:29--> 00:52:52

No, no, it doesn't matter. It's for you. Yeah, for whatever you miss. So whatever you miss, it doesn't have to do with whoever you're, you know, taking care of. So if you miss 30 days, then you pay, I would say on an average, not necessarily but on average $5 per day, you know, $5 times 30 $150 the end of the month, that is the average income, so yes.

00:52:59--> 00:53:42

Do you have to cover to make up the Miss days of Ramadan, after the month is over before you fast your six days of Shabbat or can you? Well, again, this is a matter of debate amongst the scholars. There are those scholars who said you have to do that first because the Prophet said, Whosoever fasts the month of Ramadan, and then follow it with six days of Shabbat. So they said people will have days Miss days to make up, they have not fasted the month of Ramadan. So that doesn't apply to them. So they have to first fast the month of Ramadan. However, there's evidence from reports and narrations by the long run. And the mothers of the believers suggesting otherwise that the that a

00:53:42--> 00:54:20

person could this is this is one fast, that's another fast and in some cases, someone you know, especially, you know, our sisters might have so many days to make up that they want to make up those days during the month of chawan then they won't be able to pass the six days of show what I personally say that it is valid if you choose to do that. But make sure that you do make up your days of Ramadan ASAP before especially before the next Ramadan because that if you if you reach them at the following normal gone without making up those days, you will have to pay penalties for those days. And it's actually a sin to deliberately delayed anyways, and the person has to repent.

00:54:20--> 00:54:21

However,

00:54:22--> 00:54:31

I always encourage people to take care of those days first and then fast the fast the days of Shawa. So either way is valid showboater Yes.

00:54:40--> 00:54:56

You that's a good question. Now someone might say can I combine my intention? Can I have a combined intention? I will fast six days from Chihuahua with the intention of them those six days or part of those six days being to cover for the mistakes you can do that

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

you know there's there is a general rule

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

The sherea general rule in the Sharia that the,

00:55:05--> 00:55:53

the, the form, the obligatory Act does not accommodate the voluntary or the nothing, it doesn't accommodate. So for example, no one can come and say, Oh, you know, I miss my student portfolio. So while they're praying the tools are the actual tool for failure. They say I'll pray it along with the intention of being also the students will treasure or nobody can come pray Maghrib and say, it is also my wizard as well for the day or prayer should say Oh, it is also much better when you get further prayer or further Act does not accommodate nothing, no one can give their two and a half percent Zika obligatory Zika and say this is also sadaqa. No, you can do that. So however, nipple

00:55:53--> 00:56:18

may accommodate me, you might have multiple intention, when you do an effort for example, you come and pray to like effort failure, right? When you come to the machine as soon as for failure before before the Salah, that might also count for the hatred machine. So you don't have to pay separate for that. You get my point. shoulda not. So, so far does not accommodate and nothing nothing. So you have to separate the two.

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

Yes.

00:56:21--> 00:56:22

Let's see

00:56:24--> 00:56:40

what happens. Okay, is fasting valid for someone who pray who doesn't pray but fast? Is that what you say? Okay, according to the majority of the scholars, their fasting is valid, but their reward is diminished seriously and severely

00:56:41--> 00:57:06

their fasting is very flawed. You know, seriously, they have a serious problem with that but they're, they're fasting technically speaking is is valid they may not get any water but they're there the fasting technically speaking is valid. However there's also an opinion that says no, if they don't pray at all they abandoned the law altogether. They're not even considered Muslim does therefore any act that they do is not counted for them.

00:57:08--> 00:57:17

So Salah is a serious matter and it always amazes me how people don't you know have their priorities I'm not saying pray don't don't fast

00:57:18--> 00:57:22

right? I'm not saying pray don't what I'm saying is if you fast then you must pray.

00:57:24--> 00:57:27

If you fast then you must break the law.

00:57:28--> 00:57:29

Yes.

00:57:33--> 00:57:33

How

00:57:34--> 00:57:35

are you considering?

00:57:37--> 00:57:59

How far do you have to go before it's considered a travel this is another controversial like you know, issue that you have differences of opinion on it. I personally believe that if you can do so, then you can break your fast. However, if it is a trip, if it's a one day trip, like you go from here to San Diego you're gonna come back you're gonna leave during the day come back during the day doesn't make sense to break your fast or something like that.

00:58:01--> 00:58:02

Our data,

00:58:03--> 00:58:05

especially if you can do that every day.

00:58:06--> 00:58:07

Yes.

00:58:14--> 00:58:15

physically moving or being.

00:58:17--> 00:58:33

Again, when it comes to traveling, the definition of traveling there's there's differences of opinion on that. But I say if someone's intention is Oh, they woke up that day. And they didn't eat. They're afraid that they might get really exhausted and tired. So they traveled down to San Diego

00:58:34--> 00:58:39

have a meal there at the Ghanian restaurant and come back

00:58:40--> 00:58:43

that the the travel itself has to have a valid reason.

00:58:44--> 00:58:54

It has to be it has to be real. The intention behind traveling this should not be Oh because I then I can you know I can break my fast.

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

E mo point.

00:59:07--> 00:59:18

Oh, how long do you have to settle in that region in order? Like for example, if someone exchange student comes here during the month of Ramadan, he's is he considered to be traveling during the whole month?

00:59:20--> 00:59:35

Again, there are differences of opinion, we'll log data and the strongest opinion the one that I lean toward is the one that says no. Once the person comes and settles in a place knows how long they're going to stay, they are no longer traveling so they no longer they cannot shorten the Salah or break their fast.

00:59:37--> 00:59:47

You get my point. So if you are here, international students that come here, they cannot say oh, I'm traveling so I don't have to pass the month of Ramadan. And I can shorten all my prayers.

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

People get confused

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

by what is going to be whenever it starts

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

Okay.

01:00:03--> 01:00:09

Yes, we need to make an announcement about the timing for the slot. And we're going to do that announcement again after the show. Yes.

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

Sir.

01:00:16--> 01:00:17

The monetary value?

01:00:19--> 01:00:21

Oh, I get it depends on what what it is.

01:00:24--> 01:00:30

No, no, we're not talking about mosquito we're talking. You're saying how much of a slot is? How much is worth money wise?

01:00:31--> 01:00:34

Oh, to feed me scheme? What's the definition of a mosquito?

01:00:40--> 01:00:54

Yeah, that's what a lot of people do. They say, but you did. For example, what I tell people is that the whoever it is that you give the cotton photo to, like, for example, if we send the cattle filter, we cannot,

01:00:55--> 01:01:31

you know, we cannot distribute the catheter locally. We What do we do? We have an agency like Islamic Relief, for example that we go through. So we give them the money and we say, can you give this out, we'll give you the money, you buy the food or the grain in parts of Africa and Asia, wherever they needed the most. And they give food they feed people out of it, of course, it's going to be much more than much, much more than 30. Right. But you have to measure like, for example, $150 will feed definitely will feed over 60 people, it will feed the whole village maybe right at hamdulillah. So

01:01:32--> 01:02:09

if you cannot do it locally here where you can find the people or do it in person, then you can have someone else do it on your behalf, whether it be relatives or someone overseas, or an agency that you give them the money and they do that for you. And that's why Islamic Relief or hear the message, we always remind people that if this is a cotton filter, or cafardo cm, then please write that in the memo of you write a check right at the memo. So we know where where to allocate that frog where to put it because everything is a cotton filter is one thing the cotton man is different thing. So usually what we do is we collect those funds with the same with the same funds that we collect the

01:02:09--> 01:02:13

cash and fifth of n, because it's a very similar process will LaDonna

01:02:15--> 01:02:15

Yes.

01:02:20--> 01:02:57

Can you make the intention for the whole month of Ramadan? Some scholars said this, but this is an invalid opinion. A lot Allah Allah. No, you have to make your intention for every night. What does that mean? If you wake up for the hood out of the ethers? That is that is an indication that you made your intention. Because no one is eating so hard because they just did it. Right. So if you wake up first Hold on You either hold or simply simply after you break your fastball after you go from knowing that you're going to fast tomorrow, that you don't plan for tomorrow, meaning you're not traveling or anything. So you know, you're gonna fast tomorrow, as long as you remember. You

01:02:57--> 01:03:01

remember to remember that you're fasting tomorrow, you made your intention. Yes.

01:03:08--> 01:03:11

Yes, if you plan to wake up from soccer, and you didn't,

01:03:13--> 01:03:15

and you miss the hurt and you woke up after for your treasure.

01:03:16--> 01:03:29

Does that count for your intention? Of course, because you already planned. You see, you had the plan to wake up for a second because you had the intention to fast. So the intention was there but the support is missed, the support wouldn't count.

01:03:31--> 01:03:34

So it will be valid but you will be hungry that day.

01:03:37--> 01:03:37

And sack

01:03:39--> 01:03:50

that's what I'm saying in sac is a new thing that where people just stop eating and drinking is something that is a habit and do during the time people are doing it just to be on the safe side because now we we we we

01:03:51--> 01:04:06

we rely on calculation or or or or the watch. You know people say okay, doing insect insect means stopping eating and drinking. They tell you to stop like half an hour 25 minutes or 10 minutes, none of which is is valid.

01:04:07--> 01:04:11

They always do because it's it's a custom. It's a cultural thing.

01:04:12--> 01:04:20

So don't look at that column. Look at the column that says failure. Yeah, you have up to that time. As long as your watch is accurate. Make sure that your watch is accurate.

01:04:24--> 01:04:41

Is the holder sooner or obligatory? It is sooner. It is sooner but highly emphasized sooner. The processes have said in support. There is a lot of Baraka, even if it's one date, the process of even if it's one date in a sip of water eats the hood, even if the little amount. Yes.

01:04:42--> 01:04:43

Anyone else?

01:04:44--> 01:04:45

Yes.

01:04:46--> 01:04:47

The last question? Yes.

01:04:50--> 01:04:51

Some somewhat?

01:04:54--> 01:04:54

Yes.

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

Okay.

01:05:00--> 01:05:18

If someone missed days from Ramadan, the past form of one, and they did not make up for those days, they need to make up those days ASAP. Now if this Ramadan comes in without them making up those days, after the month of Ramadan is over, they need to make up those days and feed them skin for every day.

01:05:20--> 01:05:29

For every day that they missed, so if they missed like a total of three or four days that they didn't make up for until this Ramadan came in, then they need to feed for miskeen.

01:05:30--> 01:05:30

Yes,

01:05:32--> 01:05:33

yes, yes.

01:05:43--> 01:05:43

Nope.

01:05:44--> 01:05:57

Zack Allah. Hey, that's a good question. What about pregnancy pregnancy is a valid reason for missing a missing limb. I mean, not fasting, but they will have to make up they have a lot to do. They have to do cover.

01:06:02--> 01:06:06

Yeah, they don't feed muskie, they don't have to, they do cover.

01:06:07--> 01:06:30

Now if it's if we have any case, where let's say a sister Mashallah gave birth, she was pregnant for nine months. And then she gave birth and little Milan came in, she was breastfeeding for a year or two. And then as soon as she finished with this child, she got pregnant again. And and there are cases like that there are cases like that where basically some sisters Miss did not fast for 10 years.

01:06:32--> 01:06:54

Know what I'm about? Because they just kept having children and breastfeeding having children and breastfeeding Abigail and Bridget for 10 years. They didn't I say that particular individual or these kind of cases, they need to seek federa for their for their condition for their situation. Because we're talking about now what 300 years 300 days, three a whole year fasting

01:06:55--> 01:07:19

and so much video that they have to make. Of course, you know, the one has to take her or his Deen seriously not allow something like this to happen, you know, and planted properly. But again, these are cases actual cases and the owner may have already discussed them and dealt with them. So there is a factor for this but usually it's not a general factor. It depends on the person their condition and their situation.

01:07:20--> 01:07:26

Okay, finally we remind each other this on mobile, we're going to have an exciting program. Yes, brother Adam, very exciting program.

01:07:27--> 01:07:31

Guess what? This Ramadan, everybody's supposed to fast and we're gonna have to wait.

01:07:32--> 01:07:37

But inshallah we unlike any other television show data we ask the Lord to accept from all of us.

01:07:38--> 01:07:50

Asia prayer, inshallah, we'll start at 845 in fact, you know what, Adam, starting the first night, the first night, maybe tomorrow, or Sunday.

01:07:51--> 01:08:13

Most likely, it will be Sunday, shama xojo, most likely, and I pray to a loss of habitat for it to be Sunday so that most the 90% of the community will fast on the same game show data. But again, as I said, Here, we determined that by on Rodia, if the hidden is seen, then we will we will start to tell so tomorrow night there is a slim chance very slim chance.

01:08:14--> 01:08:55

The first of all God has dissipated to be on Monday, and we anticipate to brace the first of all we show on Sunday night, but it's tomorrow turns out to be the first night of taraweeh then we will we should pray will be at 845. Today we're going to start right after Isha. We are insha Allah determined and excited and inshallah we'll be able to control any of those speakers or fundraisers that happen, but inshallah everything should end with with it by 10 o'clock inshallah tada and 1015. It should be out of here. I shall show without any other concerns or questions during any of the logistics. All right, does that go ahead?
