Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi hmm en Wilbert Charla, we will start by talking about the merits of fasting about Fidel ously on the merits of fasting. Fasting was mentioned in the Quran a few times. And Allah subhanaw taala in sort of the hub describes the believers with a number of descriptions on number of traits. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Muslim you know, well Muslim it will mean in our mamina it will call an 18 hour carnita That was sad 18 are Saudi cots or soybean or soybean it will hurt you in our hearts you hurt well matassa duty in our motor so Ducati was saw in in our saw EMAT will have you lean off Raja Hamid Hatfield

00:00:50--> 00:01:04

lot with vacuity in Allah cathedral wood vecchio rot, De La Jolla, home of Puritan agilon Alima. So Allah mentions a few descriptions of the believers and among them, Allah Subhana Allah mentions was saw Amina was saw Emacs.

00:01:05--> 00:01:44

They are the ones that observe the fast males and females, they observe the fast. So observing the fastest one of the main descriptions of believers because it's such a great act of worship. And we know obviously, that so modeled on fasting Ramadan is one of the pillars of Islam. One of the pillars of Islam that our Islam stands upon, stands upon these pillars. So if someone someone doesn't observe the fast, this is a serious issue with the faith, a serious issue with the faith. And Allah subhanaw taala says in the verses that talk about fasting or antisoma higher on Lacan in quantum Tyler moon, and if you fast it is better for you if you're not

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

here Allah is talking about the people who are exempted or at the beginning fasting by the way

00:01:56--> 00:02:19

when the when the first verse was revealed, you were living in Amman or cote Valley como su Yamaka makuti. Valhalla, Lydian and publico Allah come to all you who believe fasting has been prescribed upon you, just as it was prescribed upon the people who came before you. Lacan tokens so that you may attain taqwa, you may attend taqwa, Yemen, I do that

00:02:20--> 00:02:53

you know a number for a number of days. Someone can I mean, Kumari Amman, our NsFR in fed determine a Yamaha fed determine a Yamaha so those who are ill or physically unable, or those who are traveling, so they can make up whatever they miss later on, after Ramadan afterwards. And we know obviously, if someone is sick, or someone is traveling, they are exempt from fasting. They can they can choose if they can fast and they're able to do it fine, but they are exempt from fasting.

00:02:55--> 00:03:14

But they have to make up whatever there is they miss the terminal Mm hmm. What Allah Lavina Yoto your owner who will feed your tongue to arm on his skin now, and those who are able to do it, that's what last month was saying, while in Medina, Yoko Ono, and those who are able to handle fasting with difficulty.

00:03:17--> 00:03:29

And this was revealed about older people. If they fasted, it would be difficult for them, but it would not jeopardize or risk their life or their health. But it would be extremely difficult for them.

00:03:30--> 00:03:44

Or people who were sick, suffering some from some kind of disease. And if they fasted, it would be very difficult for them, but there will be no risk on their health, no serious consequences.

00:03:45--> 00:04:27

So, at the beginning, these people were exempt from fasting they wanted this well Allah Subhana Allah says we are living at home in our home, the Atlanta amo Mysskin. So they can pay a fee, the expiation, which is feed one poor person, give them a full meal, offer them for me. So because these people were allowed, and this is not as I said, this is a mild sickness, it just makes fasting a little bit more difficult, or old age that makes fasting a little bit difficult, but not impossible, or not extremely exhausting to the body. So Allah subhanaw taala. At the beginning, he exempted these people allowed them but then later on Allah subhanaw taala only exempted the people who are

00:04:27--> 00:04:37

traveling and the people who are sick, who when they fast is going to exacerbate the medical condition or make things extremely hard for them.

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

So only those people were able to pay the Vidya ot are sorry, too fast later on. But the people who are unable completely to fast like due to old age and fasting would risk their life or risk risk their health and have serious consequences. Those are the only ones who were exempt from fasting at the end. So Allah subhanaw taala set for the null

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

hospitals is one to show more high yield on liquid in quantum tanaman. So you can opt to not fasting and paedophilia, if it's a little bit difficult for you. But if you fast it is better for you. So fasting is better than the video that shows that fasting has a profound merit. And now we can move on to look at the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to the murder of fasting. So Allah says to us, that you fast is better for you. So that shows there's a lot of goodness in fasting. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam indicated that fasting is a protection is a shield that protects us. It's an act of worship, but it's also a profound shield and protection that

00:05:47--> 00:06:14

saves us from falling into a lot of bad things. For example, the prophets of salaam says when he is addressing the younger ones among the OMA and the Hadith collected by Bukhari and Muslim. He says Yama, Shabbat, Shabbat, Minister ba I mean, como foliate as a watch for inna who are humble in basalt suddenly felt woman lumea stopped at Valley he was so mean for in a hula hoop with

00:06:15--> 00:06:35

the process and says, all young people get married, get married, because it will help you lower your gaze and will help you protect your private parts. So you don't commit Zina. You don't commit Zina. But as for those who are unable to marry,

00:06:36--> 00:06:40

then let them hold on to fasting for Inola, who wager

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

Weijia is incarceration.

00:06:46--> 00:07:18

That means it kills the desire, fasting kills the sexual desire. Why? Because sexual desire is usually in all piles up or builds up within the body, when the body's is at ease. When the body is at ease, so you having enough food, you don't have a lot of physical exertion, and so on and so forth. So you have lots of energy in the body. Now the body could, at this time, the body usually develops this kind of sexual desire.

00:07:19--> 00:08:07

But fasting takes away a lot of that physical energy by not providing providing so much nutrient nutrients during the day. So this is why the person does not feel the same level of sexual urge, the same level of sexual energy. And this is why they say over eating increases your sexual desire, the more you eat, you find the need to you know, sexually or to become sexually active. But when you abstain from eating and drinking for a whole day, it's actually lessens your sexual desire. And the problem was, he mentioned here and some kind of a metaphor, he said, It's like incarceration, incarceration, obviously, is when you cut off the private parts of certain animals, right? So that

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

means they don't have any sexual desire at all.

00:08:10--> 00:08:33

So fasting, in a sense is similar to this, it's not to the same extent, but it lessens to a great deal, the sexual desire, so shows that's actually a protection. So the problem is giving advice to the young people who are unable to marry to hold on to fasting because that is inshallah a guarantee to lower the levels of the sexual desire

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

there is something by the way, that's a practical thing.

00:08:41--> 00:08:51

For people who over eat when they open the fast after maghrib, and they over eat during the night, and for Sahar, the, the pre Dawn meal

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

the benefits of fasting in that sense will not be fooled

00:08:57--> 00:09:03

will not be fooled. Because imagine if you are eating two full meals and you over eat during them

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

still your body's getting a lot of energy and you will experience the sexual desire so in the process I'm talking about fasting is talking about fasting when you observe the etiquettes of fasting as well but you do not overeat the problem with that's a very general problem is very common unfortunately, among the Muslims is that as if we are taking revenge when we open our fast like we are avenging ourselves have deprived myself of eating for 16 hours. Now I'm going to teach I don't know who a lesson so I'm gonna destroy you know the plate in front of me or not even a plate is a platter of food.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

So that's a serious issue. Because you do away with with a lot of the benefits of fasting gives you a lot of mental clarity gives you a lot of balance. It helps your body heal as well. These benefits of fasting when you overeat when you open your fast or when you have a sore

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

But that takes away a lot of these benefits. So if you still over eat Iftar and at Soho, you're not going to get this kind of effect that fasting gives, which is lessening and lowering the the intensity of the sexual desire, you're not going to get this. This is why sometimes people fasting they say, I don't experience you know any change in my sexual desire I still feel the same urges, yes, because you still over eating is too over eating. But when you have a balanced kind of a style on the balance kind of soul, you're going to reap a lot of the benefits of fasting a lot.

00:10:40--> 00:10:57

The Prophet salallahu Salam zint. Now we're going to explore a hadith that show and that indicates that fasting is a protection. So it's protection from sexual desire. And when you have less sexual desire, you are less prone to give a free play to your eyes to look around at women.

00:10:59--> 00:11:20

Because when we gaze at women, this is usually in in accordance with the intensity of our sexual desire. And it also heightens it at the same time it's more of a vicious cycle. So when you lessen your sexual desire, you're less prone to look at women, you're less tempted to look at women. So the prophesy son

00:11:21--> 00:11:50

says in this authentic hadith also reported by and highly Muslim, he says ma'am, in Aberdeen, you assume a young woman feasability Allah Illa Allah Who Be That he can watch her who and inevitably in a hurry. There is no servant. That fasts one day for the sake of Allah except that ALLAH will distance his face from the Hellfire by a distance that is counted by 70 years 70 years. So that shows that fasting is a protection from the hellfire.

00:11:51--> 00:12:06

It protects you from the Hellfire fasting itself, distances you from hellfire. So it's worth that you do it specifically with the obligatory fasting Ramadan. But there's also an invitation to fast even outside of Ramadan.

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

And the Prophet SAW Selim says in another authentic hadith,

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

a cm or June

00:12:14--> 00:12:43

a cm or June estrogen OB Halab dominant now this was reported by Imam Muhammad and the other Sunon and it's authentic. So Yom June June that means protection, Juna is protection or a shield or CMO, Junius. Dejan nobody has abdominal now, the person or the servant protects himself from the Hellfire by means of this shield by means of fasting. So this shows that fasting really protects us from the hellfire and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says,

00:12:44--> 00:13:11

and this hadith reported in Sudan as well he says masama urine and FISA be larger and Allah who been on Robina natty hunda Kyma been a sinner. He was the one who fasts and the servant who fasts a day for the sake of Allah, Allah will place between him and the hellfire, a trench, a trench again, it's the protection and this trench or the width of this trench is like the distance between the heavens and the earth.

00:13:13--> 00:13:18

By fasting one day for the sake of Allah, this includes fasting in Ramadan and outside Ramadan.

00:13:19--> 00:13:56

So that shows when you are engaged in fasting, don't think is just a simple act of worship you abstain from food and drink and sexual desire No, you are doing something profound an act of profound nature that surely distances you I want the prophets of salaam this says distances you it literally does. This is not just a metaphor, it's a reality. It's a reality you are getting more distant from the Hellfire when you fast you place more protection and shields between you and the Hellfire when you fast one day. So imagine the more you fast for the sake of Allah how much you're getting from Allah subhanaw taala. Another merit

00:13:57--> 00:14:04

of fasting is that fasting leads you to paradise. It takes you to paradise. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:14:06--> 00:14:12

a companion came to him about Alma model the Allahu Anhu. He came to the prophets of Allah when he was in them and he said

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

no to your rasool Allah do not

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

adhere to be Hildon. Set O Allah's messenger

00:14:23--> 00:14:45

told me about an act of worship or something that I do, and by means of this act, I enter paradise. So tell me about something that if I do, it will lead me to paradise. The Prophet SAW Selim straightaway said to him either you can be so me, let me fella who? He said hold on to fasting then when you ask him about his fasting, learn me fella who there is nothing like it.

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

There is nothing like it. So when you are fasting, you're doing something that has

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

no similarities with any other act of worship. Its excellence is not as unmatched by anything else. The problems

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

is saying he's asking the purpose of them, telling me about something that I do to enter Paradise, something that will take me to Paradise, the person who says fasting, hold on to fasting, there is nothing like it. There is nothing like it so nothing will get you into paradise in terms of acts of worship.

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

Like fasting.

00:15:20--> 00:15:58

Obviously, you know, you're talking about a competitor, he so observes, observes the prayer. So that's a given. That's a given someone says, or is fasting better than the prayer, this kind of thinking is faulty. This kind of thinking is faulty. By the way. Sometimes this is why we need when we approach them, we have to have a holistic kind of approach. It's impossible for people to communicate if I'm going to, you know, have a clause at the end of every sentence I say, if I say I'm good, the prophet sunnah means saying to this companion, hold them to fasting, there is nothing like it. The companion didn't say, even the prayer. Well, that's obvious. There's nothing like the

00:15:58--> 00:16:38

prayer in the first place. But things have a context, the context is understood. One need to stay the context with every sentence because communication becomes impossible. So this is why when we communicate when we when we read the Quran, when we read the Sunnah of the profit center, even when we communicate with human beings, you can't take a word out of context, what's the context, everything this person has said in their life. Everything this person believes in. It's impossible that if I tell you, for example, you know, Kibana is my best friend. So someone says we're gonna hammer says, so I'm not your best friend. Come on. Like, it's not like this. This kind of edgy

00:16:38--> 00:16:49

approach to communication is very problematic, and is where the coverage went wrong. This was our original trunk. So here the problem saying hold on to fasting, there is nothing like it.

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

There's nothing like it. So the campaign understood that doesn't mean there's a competition between fasting and prayer or know someone is going to say, which is better fasting or prayer,

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

salah or Psalm?

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

There's no place in Islam for this question. There's no place in Islam for this question. We know that. The prayer is the pillar is the most important act of worship physically, the prayer.

00:17:13--> 00:17:24

So fasting has a special merit, but it's not a We should not start making comparisons. But the point in this hadith is that fasting takes you to Jannah.

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

Again, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in this beautiful Hadith,

00:17:30--> 00:17:44

which he narrates from Allah and that makes it a hadith Good to see Divine Hadith Carla long. Kulu Amelie Binney Adam Allahu illustrious, for in the holy war Anna GCB. Allah's wanting to harness says

00:17:45--> 00:18:15

every one of the actions of the son of Adam is for him or her. You do it you get the merit, you get the benefit in the CEM, except for fasting, it's for me and I give reward for it. So that means but someone says so I'm praying for myself when I'm praying for Allah again, when we say don't take an edgy approach to the Quran or the sunnah or any kind of communication. Allah Subhana Allah is giving a special place for fasting, a special status for fasting that's not matched by anything else.

00:18:17--> 00:18:34

So Allah is saying, fasting is for me and I am going to reward for it. The only meaning that we should take from this hadith is that fasting is is dear to Allah. Allah loves it so much. And Allah places a huge value on fasting and he rewards for it exceptionally. That's the only meaning I should take from this.

00:18:35--> 00:18:51

Then the Prophet SAW Selim says was cm or Juna, and fasting is a protection. We mentioned this before. What either Can I almost owe me a hottie confetti, your fourth one is hub. For insert bow I had an algata who failed to call in Nemo and saw him.

00:18:53--> 00:19:02

And if it's all when it's the day one of you is fasting, let him not engage in any kind of lewdness, any kind of evil talk any kind of evil speech.

00:19:05--> 00:19:21

And let him not even speak loudly or aggressively sahab Is some kind of clamor that you make some kind of noise domain that means faster and should give you this kind of serenity and calmness.

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

So you might say, I'm not saying anything bad, but you're just speaking for example, with a saying you see me I say how's everything why you're right, you're good. This is the hub.

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

In Arabic, this is the hub, you making so much planner and noise.

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

Now the person here is saying when it's the day one of you is fasting, don't engage in any evil talk any bad things don't say any bad things well, I guess hub and do not speak loudly and aggressively. Or in a vulgar fashion. Don't do this for insert bajada our culture overlay if one someone has a quarrel with you, or an

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

argument or a fight with you, the prophets of cinema saying, let that person say,

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

I am a fasting person.

00:20:09--> 00:20:47

That means don't engage, don't engage, disengage with respect, I am fasting. Now the scholars have different should he verbalize this say I am fasting, or should he say to himself, I'm fasting as a reminder, I'm fasting I should not engage in this. Both of them apply. Both of them apply if there's a need that you communicate this to that person. I'm fasting today. So I'm not engaged and engaged in this or you can see it as a reminder to yourself, I'm fasting today let me not get involved in any of this I don't want to waste although I don't want to lose the virtues or the reward of my fasting

00:20:48--> 00:21:01

will not be enough so Mohammed Mohammed in Via de la Hulu Femi saw me up to your end Allah He mean min Rehabil misc, the prophets are missing by the one in whose hand my soul is, by Allah.

00:21:02--> 00:21:08

The smell that comes out of the mouth of the fasting person is

00:21:09--> 00:21:34

sweeter with Allah subhanaw taala than them the smell of mask. And mask doesn't necessarily mean the mask that we know today. By the way, misc in the Arabic language, the word misc, it means the most beautiful fragrance, the most beautiful fragrance, but then people later on loved certain fragrances or certain perfumes and they started calling them musk.

00:21:35--> 00:21:41

But the masks that the Arabs knew it comes originally from one type of deer.

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

They extract it from a gland with you know an I believe in the neck or the chest of a deal.

00:21:48--> 00:22:14

So that's the only specific type that is called misc in Arabic for specific fragrance. But any beautiful smell in Arabic at the time of the problem used to be called misc, which we call an English English mask. So the person is saying that the smell that comes out you know when you don't eat and drink there is that some kind of smell unpleasant smell that comes out of your mouth and doesn't come from the mouth it actually comes from from your stomach

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

comes from your stomach.

00:22:17--> 00:22:42

So, this kind of smell because people usually find it unpleasant but it is with Allah sweeter than musk. Why? Because of the cause of it. Because it is such a great out you see how much a lot of fasting that even this unpleasant smell that comes out of your mouth. With Allah is sweeter than than musk. Why? Because it because of it is fasting is such a great act of worship.

00:22:45--> 00:23:22

And basically Subhanallah love you know, when you love someone, you start to love some of the traits even you if you originally hate such traits. There are people who have a sense of humor, or people who are sarcastically saying that you don't lie, you don't like sarcasm, but if you happen to fall in love, or admire a person who has who is sarcastic. You'd be surprised that you will start to like sarcasm. Specifically when it comes from that person. That's how we humans, we're not completely logical. We have a lot of bias. We have a lot of bias. So

00:23:25--> 00:23:49

there's something there's something there's a line of poetry, one, one bedwyn, he loved, he fell in love with a woman. So what he said because he wants to express how much he loves her. So he says or hit Booyah. What to him, Bonnie, when you hit bonacasa her diary. He says I love her and she loves me. And my camel loves her camel.

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

So that shows that when humans like obviously when we love,

00:23:55--> 00:24:17

we love whatever trait is associated with what we love, usually. And Allah subhanaw taala even though to us This smell is unpleasant, Allah subhanaw taala in his greatness, because because of how much he loves fasting, he even loves that smell that comes out of the mouth. Now the scholars have argued, should we

00:24:18--> 00:24:29

like strive to get this smell? Or should we strive to remove it since Allah Subhanallah loves it. That's a dispute. It's a beautiful dispute among the scholars. But

00:24:30--> 00:24:34

from an authority or scientific perspective, the strongest opinion says no,

00:24:35--> 00:25:00

this smell comes accidental. So even though Allah loves it, he loves it because of the fasting. So the loves goes to the fasting first and foremost. So you should not strive to keep it you can eliminate it with using the miswak was with using the Prophet SAW Selim there's nothing that came from him nothing authentic that came from Him that He prohibited using the miswak during fast

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

And so you can use them as work during fasting. You can use them as swag during fasting. So then what I would say according to,

00:25:07--> 00:25:21

to my personal view, the strongest opinion among the scholars is that yes you should use the miss work and not not necessarily keep that smell if it comes out fine, fine, but it's not intended by and in itself.

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

The purpose of sentences the site AMI Farhat and this is the same hadith is slightly me Farhat Ania, for whom

00:25:29--> 00:26:17

either as Paula Fatiha were either lucky, the whole Fairyhouse on for the fasting person, there are two moments of joy. When he opens his fast and McRib, he's happy. Because fulfillments such a great act of worship for Allah. I've done it for Allah and Allah loves it. That's a sense of achievement fulfillment. So this beautiful, by the way, this is a profound sense of joy. Most of us don't pay attention to it, enjoy it. Enjoy that moment and live it for the experiences experience it the second moment of joy, the process says either luck the bow, very heavy Sami and when he or she meets the Lord, they are happy and join us with the first. Why because when you meet Allah, you're going

00:26:17--> 00:26:28

to see the consequences. That's that means the moment you death of your death, the moment your soul leaves your body, you're going to feel this, you're going to feel this joy. And the moment you meet Allah on the Day of Judgment,

00:26:29--> 00:26:36

you're going to feel this joy, why? Because of the rewards that you're going to see in front of you because of fostering these days.

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

So that shows that fasting is a profound investment with

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

those, there's a narration or a body

00:26:47--> 00:27:27

that is connected to this hadith as well. It's an edition, where the prophet is what Allah subhanaw taala says when he talks about in the Psalm, finally when, as he says, each action you do is for you, except fasting is for me. And I wrote for it the last month and it says the actual coup, but I am a shahada who will show what a woman agilely, a CMOD, one at Zebra who will have to be actually in 30. He says, My servant abstains and leaves leaves off his food and his drink and his desire for me. For me, fasting is for me and I reward for it. And each good deed will be rewarded 10 times over

00:27:32--> 00:27:54

there is an operation in Sahih Muslim where Allah subhanaw taala here says in the same Hadith same Divine Hadith Kulu and eliminate Adam and your wife, each of the actions of the son of Adam will be multiplied and we know the purpose of them said each hustler will be multiplied to 10 times and has an attribute actually him 30 either sub aiming at your wife.

00:27:55--> 00:28:04

So each action that you do will be multiplied 10 times over up to 700 times over up to 700 times over.

00:28:06--> 00:28:16

Call Allahu Allah then Allah subhanaw taala says in the song except for fasting this 10 times over to 700 times over does not apply to fasting for in the Holy One and

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

it's for me and I reward for it. What does this mean? It means it's even multiplied

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

it breaks the rule the rule with all the good deeds.

00:28:30--> 00:29:10

Okay, so these are enough motofest Inshallah, tomorrow we will talk more about the merits of fasting this should serve to encourage us that when we fast, we fast we have what we call this bar Nia, we have our intention for Allah, seeing all these merits and all these rewards and benefits for fasting should actually encourage us to fast in with more of our same with a present heart with the present heart. So your heart is present, when you're fasting and your intention is strong and clear that you're doing this for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Let me take if there are any questions, inshallah we can take some any questions from

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

them, I was

00:29:12--> 00:29:25

on my computer, and I was gonna say just benefits of customer. I think I came across the website. But I said to myself, let me not dilute my intention. You know, I don't want to I don't want to know about health benefits.

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

So I was

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

okay, that's a good question. So the question is, I was checking a website that talks about the health benefits of fasting, then I stopped myself, right. And I said to myself, no, because I don't want to pollute my intention. I want to do it for Allah regardless of the health benefits, because obviously, it seems there is some kind of fear that if I read these benefits, that they will hijack my intention that I will be fasting for the sake of the health benefits, either fully, or partly at least I'll be fasting for these health benefits.

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

So, what I will say each person is different,

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

each person is different.

00:30:06--> 00:30:28

But if you felt that depends on your self knowledge, if you feel that this might hijack your intention, to a certain extent, it might be the good thing. It mean you made a good decision not to look into them. But each person is different, how you take these benefits, how you relate to them, okay defines whether it's better for you to look into them, or just ignore them.

00:30:29--> 00:30:36

So it's different among different peoples, I cannot give an answer for all.

00:30:37--> 00:31:16

It depends on how much control you have over your intention. But I would say ideally, generally speaking, they shouldn't take your intention away. They shouldn't steal, I mean, that's good. They might even intensify and strengthen your intention to realize to see some Allah and Allah commands us to do something for him. It's not, it's also it helps us even on on the health or health ways. They help us so our last panel is in hacking. So that probably some would some people this might intensify their intention and strengthen it. It depends how you relate to it. But also there's something very important about intention. The scholars have a guide or a climax and they say Alec de

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

sab, la UniFi LA,

00:31:20--> 00:31:28

Alec desirable, la UniFi lft said, they say getting some worldly benefit does not necessarily go against pure intention for Allah.

00:31:30--> 00:31:40

pure intention for Allah and this is why the people who take part in jihad, proper jihad, when they take part in jihad, they get spoils of war

00:31:42--> 00:31:50

does this destroy the intention? It shouldn't, but there are people who fall into this who start fighting for these points of war for the rewards

00:31:51--> 00:32:02

but alas fans Allah in our he made that a legislation that people will take part in this battle and they defend Islam they get share

00:32:03--> 00:32:18

so ideally it shouldn't it shouldn't so getting some kind of benefit from what you do for the sake of Allah should not compromise your intention. But what some people who might find it problematic be on the safe side. Yeah, it's your call

00:32:27--> 00:32:27


00:32:30--> 00:33:06

Yes, there is this there is this okay. Just have an intention for for Ramadan. The thing is intention is all about being conscious that I'm fasting till tomorrow. That's all that we'll call it step Barney. I mean, you already have the intention. But it's the bar is terrible meaning bringing it bringing it to your to the consciousness to your awareness. It is the safest opinion to have this kind of awareness every night. It is better otherwise we might fall into habit. Can we just going through the motions so it is the safest? There's wi recommended at CES Wi Fi comm Arctic questions

00:33:12--> 00:33:17

we have different timetables for Ramadan. Okay.

00:33:19--> 00:33:28

Time for four or five, if you follow if I have my iPhone and short 510 10 different timetable.

00:33:30--> 00:33:36

Okay, and for for a start for marketing all seem to be agreed, like it's one or two minutes difference. So that's that's not a big deal.

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

In terms of

00:33:41--> 00:34:04

the timetable, there are unfortunately because there is there are interpretations of what for example, Al Fajr means what will heighten abuse was the federal side and federal cabinet, the true Fajr Dawn and the sort of fake or false future. So there is a disagreement among the scholars. As far as I know, and this is not I hope this will not be taken as propaganda.

00:34:05--> 00:34:19

I believe we follow here is something that has been tested by a very strong student of knowledge, a person of knowledge, who sets tested these, okay? And they put them based on this and I believe sticking from the Quran and Sunnah.

00:34:21--> 00:34:28

So it's done according to a correct method. So what I would recommend is here you ask the Imam that you trust

00:34:29--> 00:34:34

but if you follow one like one timing or one method don't

00:34:35--> 00:34:40

criticize the other methods like you have two brothers at the same house. Same house one says okay,

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

one of them President one Masjid the other president another Masjid I'm following my email I'm here i i trust them. Fine, perfect. The other one, they break the LD the the for them feature is a bit earlier, let's say 10 to 15 minutes early and he can't say Oh, you have no fast for the other one. No

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

We have to respect each other here. This difference is okay Insha Allah, so we don't make a big deal out of it, which

00:35:09--> 00:35:17

you have to the issue is switching on what basis a person is switching the same thing with fatwa. Why one day you asked the chef the other day asked another chef, why was

00:35:18--> 00:35:42

any average Muslim who don't have Islamic knowledge? Practically speaking, they should have a teacher or an Imam, who they believe to be upon the Sunnah who strives to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, who strives to follow the truth regardless, and they have knowledge or at least they have a good level of knowledge and they are connected to the scholars.

00:35:43--> 00:35:48

And you trust their religiosity and they will they will give you something that is that they believe is true.

00:35:50--> 00:36:28

That's a person that you should take for to a front including what's the time for Fajr? Or what's the time from what you take from them. And that's it. Until you become a student of knowledge, then there will be more options but at this stage, you have to take because Allah Subhan Allah says Allah Allah decree in controllata, Allah Mon, so ask the people of knowledge when you do not know if you do not know. So ask one person that you trust and you believe the strive to arrive at the truth. That's the person you ask. That's the only practical way other than that is just playing with religion, you will find it it will be impractical. Even someone who says I follow this mother app or

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

follow that madhhab regardless, you're not following them. Have you following one scholar within an app? Because even within the same will have they will find differences among the scholars? Yeah.

00:36:39--> 00:36:52

Well, yeah. So ask, ask the, as you said, the Imam, that you trust all the scholar that you trust that you usually seek for fatwa and keep him as that one person? That's for the one that's for the layman Muslim, Lina
