This is the first episode of four episodes special edition with regards to the virtues of the blessed month of Ramadan and fasting.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:23

And the Hadith which we'll be discussing

00:01:26 --> 00:02:11

will be from chapter 217, the collection of Riyadh al Saleh and by imam who know away so skip the order so that we can discuss the virtues of fasting in sha Allah. Because of this beautiful and wonderful occasion the melissad month of Ramadan would begin by speaking about the excellence of observing fasting, during the month of Ramadan, what will be the greatest reference obviously Al Quran will carry the word of Allah subhanaw taala, the Quranic verses, which mandated fasting and prescribed it and that is in Surah Al Baqarah, the second chapter of the Quran beginning from a number one, ad three, then one ad four and when ad five

00:02:12 --> 00:02:35

then it will be followed by a beautiful idea concerning the version of invocation and we will mention the link and the relationship between this idea and the previous set of fasting in sha Allah. So we'll take it from there and number 183 and 184 of Surah Al Baqarah in which Allah subhanaw taala says I will do will him in a shape or near Raji.

00:02:36 --> 00:02:48

Yeah, you will have Lavina go to ballet como Surya mukana cote Bella levy In Corbin eco Malala, Khun Taku

way tell zoom or hiding your lagoon in

00:03:27 --> 00:03:28

Tala Moon

00:03:29 --> 00:03:40

and the meaning of these two beautiful ayat which describe fasting for the believers 183 Or you who believe ALLAH is addressing the believers,

00:03:41 --> 00:03:53

observing fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you for the nations before you particularly the People of the Scripture,

00:03:54 --> 00:04:11

that you may become from amongst the pious and the righteous ones. So the area mentioned effective codes and the wisdom behind prescribing fasting which is to achieve righteousness. Then in a number one ad for Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:04:12 --> 00:04:17

observing fasting is only for a fixed number of days.

00:04:18 --> 00:04:45

And in the following a 185. Allah will explain that fasting is prescribed during the month of Ramadan, so it is only for a fixed number of days, not every day. But if any of you is ill, or on a journey, then the same number should be made up from other days. And as for those who can fast with hardship and difficulty, they have a choice either to fast

00:04:46 --> 00:04:59

or to feed a poor person. For every day they skip fasting, but whoever does God of his own accord, it is better for him and that you fast is better.

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

for you, if only, you know,

00:05:05 --> 00:05:23

to me that I that are these two verses are very clear by the Grace of Allah subhanaw taala. Perhaps because you studied the reason of the revelation because we know the Hadith, which explain the these two is in details and we also know the history of the legislation of fasting

00:05:24 --> 00:05:42

and it is our duty to share this knowledge with you brothers and sisters. In the first area when 83 Allah subhanaw taala stated several facts, the fact number one, that fasting has become mandatory, which means before that, it was not.

00:05:44 --> 00:06:12

Number two, fasting is prescribed upon Muslims. And it is not an unprecedented for you know, it has been prescribed for nations before us and the Hadith explained that it has been prescribed for Jews and Christians. And even in the Quran. It teaches us that Allah subhanho wa Taala had appointed Prophet Moses peace be upon him for a meeting with him.

00:06:13 --> 00:07:03

Then the meeting was after 30 days where he ordered him to fast for 30 days in order to purify himself before the meeting with Allah subhanaw taala. The interpreters of the Quran said what abdomen now, the ash is sorted out off, then we add it to the 30 days, another 10 days. So the number of days which Prophet Moses peace be upon him had to first will total 40 They said because Musa alayhis salam. After finishing the 30 days of fasting, he cut a branch of a tree and he brushed his teeth was what we do with the miswak in order to remove the smell, which remains after long fasting in the mouth. So Allah subhanho wa Taala told him almost as Why did you do that? Don't you

00:07:03 --> 00:07:22

know that? The smell and he called it the fragrance Halluf of the mouth of a fasting person is dearer to me than the smell of the mask which is the best and the most vicious perfume go back and fast for another 10 days. Fasting also has been prescribed for Christians, whether

00:07:24 --> 00:07:40

during Ramadan or any other time whether it was 30 days, more or less. And whether it is from dawn to sunset, it doesn't matter the manner does not concern us what concerns us that Allah subhanho wa Taala seed can go to Val Levine among publikum.

00:07:42 --> 00:07:46

So, first thing was known Indonesians before Muslims

00:07:47 --> 00:08:02

and Prophets before Mohammed Salah Salem have ordered their people to fast it's a very blessing and a very distant worship to purify the heart, the mind and the soul and the body as well.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:20

And because of that, the following fact was stated in the area, law law calm that tekun In order to achieve righteousness in order to attain piety and become of the pious ones, and

00:08:21 --> 00:09:07

the traits of righteousness have been explained in the same chapter. The second idea of Surat Al Baqarah when Allah subhanaw taala said, Valley Kalki tabula rasa he wouldn't limit Ducane and Moutoku goon plural of Motoki we'll talk turkey the person who is pious or righteous, who achieved the means of righteousness. Allah subhanaw taala in the following essayed Alladhina manana Will it be okay mana Salah Tommy Melrose akana Holmium fuel corn. So the righteous ones have fulfilled articles of faith amongst which they believed in Allah they believed in his faith they believed in the unseen and whatever Allah has informed. And furthermore, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, the offer

00:09:07 --> 00:09:43

what Allah has ordered them, offering the prayers have given any charity spin of what Allah has provided for them, and so on. So fasting is an act of worship which will enable the person to encompass and achieve all the traits of righteousness. Because of that you will find later on in the Hadith we discuss that the prophets Allah Allah Allah Selim informed us that fasting isn't about hunger and thirst. No fasting is about improving your relationship with Allah improving your manners, improving your conduct, and so on.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:48

And becoming a better person which are the means of righteousness as well.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:53

In the sound Hadith interview, sallAllahu Sallam addressed the youth,

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

teenagers, youth, those who are at marriageable age, he said Yeah,

00:10:00 --> 00:10:02

Masha Allah Sheva, or young men and women,

00:10:04 --> 00:10:09

men who stutter I mean Kumada at affiliate as I watch, when we reach a certain age

00:10:10 --> 00:10:11

ordinary people

00:10:12 --> 00:10:41

due to the hormonal system which Allah subhanaw taala provided with the start developing the tendency of having sexual desire. They want to get married, they want to satisfy their sexual desire in a lawful fashion. So, interview SallAllahu sallam said Marriage Marriage is a solution for young men and women, if you can afford the means of getting married, at this age, get married, fell yet as a watch.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

What if you can't?

00:10:45 --> 00:11:35

Then the alternative is to observe fasting and how would fasting alternate or functions instead of getting married? Would you do the same job? No, it wouldn't do the same job, but it will suppress your sexual desire and it will not make you spin your sexual desire in an illicit relationship or unlawful fashion. Because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam assayed for Melania stuffer follow you the song for in a hula hoop, it will be the best means of protection against falling into an illicit relationship against falling into what Allah has forbidden. So he said, marriage is a hot girl bustle is based with regards to lowering your gaze. Whereas on old Forge, and it is the greatest

00:11:35 --> 00:11:57

mean of guarding and protecting re chastity. What if you can afford that means many of our students at marriageable age, they can barely afford buying a bite or school supplies and so on. So, to ask them to get married, they can't. So what is the solution? A song

00:11:58 --> 00:12:17

a song because it comes with a package. When you fast. You have to lower your gaze, you have to restrain yourself refrain your heart, your eyes, your mind from what Allah has forbidden. And there is another indigenous mechanism in fasting, the philosophy of fasting is amazing.

00:12:19 --> 00:12:24

Because when the person is fasting, he is suffering, of course of hunger and thirst.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:48

As a result of that the brain will be diverted to another need another desire which is sure what time you will show up I want to eat. I want to drink. You know there are priorities you find a person who is afraid, cannot sleep. The person who's extremely hungry, cannot sleep. Why? Because I'm hungry. I'm worried.

00:12:51 --> 00:13:30

In if the person is disturbed thinking about something, they keep living over on their beds and they cannot sleep. Right because they're thinking. So in the thinking is diverted towards something else, which is a basic need eating and drinking and eating and drinking what what is lawful, what is 100% halal, drinking water, drinking soft drinks, drinking tea, eaten anything that is lawful, but you abstain from eating what is lawful, and drinking what is lawful, voluntarily, not only the mandatory fasting for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So the heart and mind is automatically diverted towards those needs.

00:13:31 --> 00:14:03

And that suppresses the other need, which is a sexual desire. Then download in sha Allah and we'll come to speak about plenty of a hadith describing the virtues of fasting. And also what type of fasting will be appreciated by Allah subhanaw taala we will realize that fasting comes with a package, this package will make the person or atheists person and we'll protect the person exactly as the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam assayed for in the hula hoop protection.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:52

There are some people who are ready to fight in a minute. For any reason, whenever they're fasting, they're ordered to remember that you're fasting. So even somebody addressed with foolishness say on fasting on fasting, remind yourself less you may roll in your fasting jeberti Granadilla may Allah be pleased with him said fasting isn't about hunger and thirst fasting should it be similar to any other days rather he said it has some failure some some Okay, well lesson Barroca Well, there's only seven O'Connell KdV well, he but you will know Mima if you happen to be fasting, so you're hearing should observe fasting to abstain from listening to any event talk. Music singing, backbiting,

00:14:52 --> 00:14:54

slandering. Protect your earring,

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

while also must protect your eyesight from looking

00:15:00 --> 00:15:07

At what Allah has prohibited because list, it may nullify your fasting and void your fasting from the word

00:15:08 --> 00:15:19

Lisanna and guard your mouth, guard your tongue, do not get involved in any vain talk. Why? Because you're fasting. So that is the meaning of

00:15:21 --> 00:15:39

the handler contact taco. The wisdom behind observing fasting is to achieve Taqwa. The greatest means of achieving righteousness, is observing fasting properly, as Allah and His Messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam advised and guided us.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:42


00:15:44 --> 00:15:48

the ayat explained for how long is it fasting

00:15:49 --> 00:16:27

and how to fast after explaining it has been ordained on nations before us and their wisdom behind observing this great act of worship. Allah subhanaw taala said I am a natural that it is not a bad idea to be offered on daily basis No, the part which is mandatory is only a few days been explained in 185 Sha Ramadan, a lady on Zillow feel only for one month which is a month of Ramadan could be 29 days could be 30 days because as you all know, in the Islamic lunar calendar, we go by the moon sighting.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:52

So a man who there that a certain number of days, not on every single day and when you look at it, you should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala that it has not been ordained too fast on every single day. And if Allah ordered us to focus on every single day, it wouldn't be too much. But out of 12 months

00:16:53 --> 00:17:33

in Knight that Asurion the law he's national Russia Haoran fee tabula Hiyama halacha sama what y'all up in Swati Toba, Allah said the month which Allah created from day one, since he created the heavens and earth are 12 that well, lunar months, out of the 12 months, he only asked us to fast for one single month and it is for our own benefit, to help us to improve ourselves to be better servants to be better human beings, to be better towards Allah and towards each other and towards our own selves. A ye ma do that. Then out of Mercy Allah subhanaw taala said, there are some people

00:17:34 --> 00:17:45

who will be exempt from fasting. Why because they may encounter hardship and difficulty if they do fast if the person is sick, if the person is on a journey,

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

and also if the person is denial

00:17:50 --> 00:18:02

that will lead us brothers and sisters to discuss the steps of the legislation of fasting initially and abuse Allah Allah Salam once arrived to Medina prescribed fasting the three days of every month.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:20

Then after word and abuse, Allah Salam order the Muslims to fast on the 10th of Muharram, as you know, that is the day of Ashura and many of the companions perceive it as it was mandatory. When I Nabil Salalah. And SlMs said,

00:18:22 --> 00:18:36

No, I have to be Musa minimum, because the Jews use the fast on the 10th. And he asked, Why do you fast on the day they said, because that is the date on which Allah saved Moses and his followers. He said, we have more rights with Musa than you

00:18:37 --> 00:19:07

and the use of us on the 10th even before the migration, so now has been confirmed as a mandatory fasting. Then the next stage is on the second year after the migration. Now we have a Muslim community. We have a complete or semi complete constitution and Islamic bylaw, which is known as the Sharia and the Riba that had been shaped. Now fasting has been ordained fully, too fast during the month of Ramadan. But

00:19:08 --> 00:19:27

fasting during the whole month of Ramadan was as follows wahala Latina up corner who fit here to Tommy's skin, we mentioned the meaning for those who can afford to fast but with difficulty and hardship such as elders, senile people.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:34

Yeah, they can fast by overburden them is pretty difficult for them. Well, it's optional.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:36

You don't want to fast

00:19:37 --> 00:19:55

you can interstate feed a poor person one miskeen per each day. That was not only limited to senile people, but it was optional for every person you don't want to first do you think it's hard for you and instead give the alternative which is their handsome feed me screen person.

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

Then afterward in the following area, there came

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

Another stage which mandated fasting for every person who is healthy and resident, without giving them the choice to skip fasting and feeding them skin. And then the feed yard or the ransom in Iowa, number 184 was only restrain to senile people and anyone who may be in a similar condition.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:27

Pregnant women, breastfeeding women,

00:20:28 --> 00:21:02

we can ask them to first, but it would be like a burdensome, it would be very hard for them. And it can lead to complications, miscarriage, dehydration, lack of milk in the birds to provide the baby. So while Alladhina, you will clean your corner who they're allowed now to skip fasting. But for them the obligation is not complete the escape fasting. But if after word they are capable to fast, then very dare to mean a yam in Ohara.

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

Very they don't mean I am in OHA they must make up the days which they must during Ramadan some other time, but for the senile people and elders, they are giving this concession period. So the obligation here is partial.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:33

There was another stage which is the final stage of shaping the perfect prescription of fasting.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:43

Before that fasting was from dawn till sunset, you're allowed to eat, they're allowed to drink, provided.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:58

You're allowed to eat you're allowed to drink, you're allowed to have sexual relations with your spouse throughout the night until dawn provided you don't fall asleep. So if after maghrib or sunset,

00:21:59 --> 00:22:08

you talk and then you resume fasting immediately. Some people will say why? Well, we're talking about the gradual process of

00:22:09 --> 00:22:12

prescribing fasting, it was like that.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:31

There was a companion of Al Ansari by the name Soma. May Allah be pleased with him. He was a laborer. He came back from work and it was sunset, his wife fixed for him the Iftar to break his fast. So while she was fixing the food, he fell asleep.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:54

So now he had to resume fasting without taking a bite. And now he ended up fasting for two consecutive days and he had to go back to work the next morning, and he was a laborer, not like an office work. And he was so tired, extremely exhausted. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw him in this condition. He told him what happened.

00:22:55 --> 00:23:28

Another companion ended up having an intimate relationship with his wife at night after having slept without realizing. So it was very difficult to maintain this. So there came the relief. And Allah subhanaw taala finally shaped fasting in its perfect form. And he said Allah subhanaw taala said Gulu was horrible had diarrhea terrible Teva Jana, Allah como la hiatal area Domina Aloha util S word immunol. Federal, so mostly Yama Elan.

00:23:30 --> 00:23:57

Eat and drink until it becomes clear to you the white thread from the black thread the white thread refers to the whiteness of the day, the light of the daytime and the black thread refers to the darkness of the nighttime. So once it is clear that it is done now you should start fasting. so mad at him mostly Emma Illa Leyland continue first thing until the night when does the night begin

00:23:58 --> 00:24:52

begins at sunset. This area, which is one ad six started with Haley hola como que la cama de la Festo Elan is equal. Now it is lawful at any part of the night from sunset till dawn, to embrace your spouse's to have sexual relations to eat to drink, no problem, no restrictions. And there was a final stage in prescribing fasting in its perfect form. So those are yet teach us the prescription of fasting, the wisdom behind it, and also the different stages of the legislation of fasting and what is the alternative for those who cannot fast whether because of seasonality, or because of a temporary reason such as being sick or on a journey to be continued in sha Allah. after the short

00:24:52 --> 00:24:53

break, please stay tuned.

00:25:13 --> 00:25:38

Tersh school,

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

the month of Ramadan, in which the Quran was revealed the guidance for mankind and clear proves for the guidance and the criterion. So whoever Have you cite the person on the first light of the month of Ramadan.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:20

And he is prison not Mustafa, not on a journey, then he and he here means he or she he must observe fasting during the month and whoever is sick or on a journey, then the same number of days which one did not fast, must be made up from other days. Allah Almighty intends for you ease he does not want to make things difficult for you. He wants you

Well, it took a bit hola hola, hola, como la la comme tous croon and this is the mean of being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala in order to be grateful to him, okay. There are several steps in this is the first step is

00:27:56 --> 00:28:29

with regards to the virtues of the Blissett month of Ramadan. Ramadan Muharram suffer. Rajab Shaban what makes Ramadan a very special month. What makes it a special month is this a on Zilla fi Hill Quran? The Quran was revealed during the month of Ramadan Subhan Allah we have been always thought that the Quran was revealed over 23 years. That is true. So don't you think that there is a conflict? The ayah says the Quran was revealed the Ramadan

00:28:30 --> 00:28:40

and Hadith and you guys are saying that the Quran was revealed over 23 years. So what does it mean? There is no conflict whatsoever.

00:28:42 --> 00:29:30

The poor N was revealed as a whole book to what is known as beta layer is that the House of honor in the only sky and it was deposited there. The Quran is the word of Allah. It has been saved by Allah and it has been recorded in the Preserved Tablet. Then it was sent down to beta laser, which is in the only sky then after word. Also during the month of Ramadan. Gibreel Ali Salam approached Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in the cave of Hera and reveal to him the first revelation the first five eight of swords are Alak aircore this Mira beaker lady Hello, hello call insert I mean Allah the Quran or Bukal a Quran

00:29:32 --> 00:29:38

Allah the lemma Bill column. Those are the first to be revealed.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:59

It was revealed as most of the scholars said and historians during the month of Ramadan on the 17th of Ramadan there is another opinion which says on the 24th of Ramadan as there is a Hadith in disregard collected by Imam Ahmed. What matters is that we understand from the eye and a half

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

Are these all together?

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


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

Allah subhanaw taala sent down the Quran as a whole book,

00:30:10 --> 00:30:36

to what is known as bait to Riza in the worldly heaven. Then from there, the first revelation was given to Mohammed Salah Salem via Gibreel Ali Salam, also during the month of Ramadan in one of its days, and it lasted for 23 years until his departure Salah Salem the period of his prophethood

00:30:37 --> 00:31:08

there that is the meaning of this ayat altogether in South Africa and in surah t de Haan Allah subhanaw taala informs us that the Quran was revealed on what is known as Laila to cut the night of the decree. The most listened might ever have the in en Zelner who and the pronoun of Enza now who refers to the Quran. Most surely we have sent it down sin down the Quran. On Leila, it will cut

00:31:09 --> 00:31:29

on the night of the decree. And in Surah Han Allah the Almighty described this Laila this might as a blizzard might, he said in NS and now houfy Leila T Mobile raka in Guna, Moon serene, more surely, we have sent it down on a blessing might.

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

So this is all together so that they do horn so they will cover and Surah

00:31:37 --> 00:31:45

Al Baqarah explained to us that the beginning of the revelation of the Quran to Muhammad Salah Salem took place

00:31:46 --> 00:31:57

during the month of Ramadan on a blizzard light and the whole Quran altogether was sent down to Bethel is also during the month of Ramadan. Okay.

00:31:59 --> 00:32:02

So the month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:19

And that's why we have to pay close attention and devote most of our time during the month of Ramadan to the recitation of the Quran to comprehending the Quran studying the Quran because it is a month of the Quran.

00:32:21 --> 00:33:09

To spend the night in prayer or as much as you can we recite the Quran or we listen to the recitation of the Quran as will be discussed in the Hadith because Nabil Salallahu Alaihe. Salam has said LCM while poor and fasting and the citation of the Quran, Al Quran here includes their citation and listening and studying. So anything that deals with the Quran, fasting and the Quran, Yeshua and Illa with the young, melty Amma they both intercede for the servant of Allah on the Day of Judgment, if any person is lacking behind the intercede for him to be saved to enter heaven. If any person entered heaven, and needs to be promoted to a higher level, our CRM while Qur'an both intercede for

00:33:09 --> 00:33:19

that person. First thing we say because I made him suffer of hunger and thirst and abstain from eating and drinking during the day.

00:33:20 --> 00:33:24

And Al Quran will say men are two who now may be late

00:33:25 --> 00:33:51

and I made him recite me during the night and he skipped sleep at night because of reciting the Quran, God allah sallallahu sallam, he say peace be upon him fellowship fine, and their intercession will be accepted, accepted. So the combination of fasting and the Quran together is very special and it is very well known and recognized because of that the month of Ramadan is also known as SHA Raul Cora.

00:33:53 --> 00:34:10

So we benefit from the brothers and sisters, if anyone has a habit of reciting a certain word or Sevak on a regular basis, daily basis during any other time outside Ramadan. Now during Ramadan, we need to increase double and triple the dose

00:34:11 --> 00:34:53

to the point that the companions the scholars and fuqaha do use to skip their classes and teaching and they will just devote this time for the studying and their citation of the Quran. Those amongst us who have a chance to take off at least during the last third of Ramadan, there is a nights where they can spend it in Africa if and now devote the whole time for rabada particularly reciting the Quran praying with the Quran along with fasting during this time. Let's do that. Because this is a very special time and we are in this life to harvest as much reward as possible

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

when I open the Quran if you

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


00:35:01 --> 00:35:06

the number of letters in the first page of Surah Al Baqarah.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:11

In the second page, it is over 1000 lira

00:35:12 --> 00:35:41

over 1000 1000 plus and then the real SallAllahu Alia Selim has informed us in the sound Hadith that there is one word that the result of the Quran will receive for each one single letter that he or she will recite is 10 good deeds. So 1000 letter times 10 We're talking about in reciting a single page 10,000 good deeds

00:35:43 --> 00:36:06

and they're all for good deeds will be doubled in precious time, such as Ramadan, and the first 10 days of the month of April hedger. So this is an opportunity and I'm glad this is the first episode in the month of Ramadan. So that what we need to do if you did not plan beforehand, you need to catch up the vote this month, as much time as possible to the recitation of the Quran.

00:36:07 --> 00:36:23

To study in the Quran to listen into the Quran and to pray in at night with the Quran even if you don't memorize the Quran. You can recite from your smartphone you can recite from an open Quran according to the vast majority of the scholars that is valid.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:26

Well they enact in mineral Hooda Al Furqan

00:36:27 --> 00:36:41

the Quran was revealed for what reason holiness, guidance for mankind and follow approves of guidance and the criterion it differentiates between

00:36:42 --> 00:37:29

what is right and what is false what is good and what is bad. Femen Shaheed I mean como Shahara failure so late he amongst you witnesses the month of Ramadan while we in prison and healthy that they should first but if the person woman Kerner Mary Ellen Isla suffering in the previous area for mankind I mean Kumari Yvonne, oh Allah suffering in this area of Montana Marine One Oh ALLAH saffron lit whoever is either sick or on a journey. So head that to mean a Yemen or make up those days, which means you're allowed to skip fasting. If you have one of these two concessions, being on a journey, or being sick. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala intends and wishes Allah loves to give you

00:37:29 --> 00:37:44

ease, loves to make things easy for yourselves. When are you ready to become a loss and does not want to make things difficult for the believers. And that was the message of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam whenever he sent more are they measurable?

00:37:45 --> 00:37:57

And other Musa lashari? May Allah be pleased with them to him and he said the sheer Allah tuna Farah were sera, sera give good news. And not the opposite.

00:37:58 --> 00:38:47

Do not frighten people while you're Silla while wallet was Sarah and make things easy for people and not make it difficult. Why Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu narrated that the behavior of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whenever he is given a choice between two things, two choices, he would always always choose what is easier as long as it is not forbidden. This is our dean, you read Hola Hola, como nuestro while you read OB como las, why making up the miss days was prescribed for the following reason. While it took nearly eight data in order to complete the number of days of Ramadan, so if Ramadan is 29 days, or 30 days, and you were traveling for a couple of days, so you

00:38:47 --> 00:39:17

skip those two days. Because of this concession you're eligible. Then some other time whenever you can make up so now you have fasted for the whole month of Ramadan, and that is indeed a great blessing which requires thanks by magnifying Allah subhanho wa taala. Before we go into this, I would like to discuss with you the opinion of the scholars concerning skipping fasting, if you are on a journey,

00:39:18 --> 00:39:20

because there are three different views

00:39:21 --> 00:39:27

with regards to what choice is better, to fast to skip fasting,

00:39:28 --> 00:39:29


00:39:30 --> 00:39:59

whether it is a master slave fasting, whether it is better to fast or not, first of all, el Djem, who the vast majority of the Muslim jurists are of the view that an Anglo Holika here, especially with the mandatory fasting during Ramadan, it is entirely up to you. You're simply given the concession you want to fast fine, you want to skip fasting, you're eligible and you will not be deprived of their word because you will have to make it up

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

Whenever you arrive or whenever you are resident after Ramadan, of course, but it is your choice because Allah subhanaw taala gave you the choice. First of all he hanging out there that may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that we went out with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam during the month of Ramadan we travel. And it was extremely hot, to the point that we used to cover our heads with our hands because of the excessive heat of the sun. And none of us was fasting. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and a companion by the name of the light, not Allah. So if the Prophet sallallahu sallam was fasting and during a journey, and during an excessive hot weather, that indicates that

00:40:47 --> 00:40:59

you have the choice. If you want to fast, that's fine, but do not run yourself. If you want to skip fasting Baker fast, because you're traveling, that's perfectly fine. And you're given this concession.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:32

And Emmanuel Scheffer and others say that fasting during the journey is better than breaking your fast because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam chose to do that. And the prophets Allah Allah Allah Salah Musa reported in another Hadith which is collected by Al Bukhari, yo Muslim, a saint in theater, for some were in shelter for after when he was asked about fasting during traveling, he said, if you wish, you can fast. And if you wish, you can skip fasting, so it is optional.

00:41:34 --> 00:42:15

I just presented the opinion of the vast majority, because there are some scholars who said Allah subhanaw taala said, if you're traveling, you get to skip fasting. So this is better. And also there is another Hadith which says, less I mean, embarrassing, I'm sorry, I'm on from suffer according to an accent of certain people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam presented this hadith in their own accent, it is not righteousness to fast while traveling. But other scholars explained it such as Ultra Mhor, that if this is going to ROI in your life, deteriorate your health, then there is no benefit of fasting, skip fasting, and you're given this concession. Now brothers and sisters,

00:42:16 --> 00:42:57

what about making up their mess days? Does it have to be soon after Ramadan? Does it have to be consecutive? No, it doesn't have to be consecutive, according to the opinion of the vast majority of the Muslim jurists and when I say that I mean that there is another opinion but this is the most right view so that's why they're not mentioned. The other view it is a part of giving is that's why I showed all the Allah on her said that I used to make up my miss days of Ramadan because of the period all the way until Shaban of the next year. So like 11 months or so. Okay, it doesn't have to be consecutive.

00:43:02 --> 00:43:06

When he took a bear Allah Allah had a comb.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:14

The last segment of the area where he took a bit of Allah Allah Maha Darko when Allah come to school.

00:43:15 --> 00:43:46

It is very interesting. If you three if you go through the Quran, you will find that Allah subhanaw taala prescribed after the Baghdad the fulfillment of the beret to celebrate the praise of Allah subhanaw taala with regards to Al Hajj Allah subhanaw taala said for either called a two minute seeker come first God Allah aka the CARICOM, Abba, Asha the crowd when you finish the Hajj rites, celebrate the praise of Allah subhanaw taala talk about him and make mention of him as much as you mentioned your parents and even more.

00:43:48 --> 00:44:31

With regards to the prayer which is something that we offer on a regular basis Allah subhanaw taala said, particularly concerning salatu Juma for either according to Salah to Fanta Shiro fill out the ER with a woman formula he was called Allah Hi Kathy or Nanda completely Han when you finish the prayers played out in the earth and seek of the provision of Allah and remember Allah much in order to be successful. So celebrating the praise of Allah glorifying Allah subhanaw taala is prescribed after every rabada and whenever we have been given success and being held by Allah subhanaw taala to fulfill an act of worship, we should turn to Allah with gratitude because had it not been him and

00:44:31 --> 00:45:00

his health, we wouldn't have done it while our lack of touch grown and in order to be grateful to him, because of that, it is prescribed to magnify Allah by making that VIERA too late. Once it is declared that tomorrow is the first day of the month of shall well, which is the day we'll begin by saying Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. La ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa ala hum.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:18

With any form of magnifying Allah subhanaw taala. May Allah bless you all, and accept our fasting and guide us to what is best, Apolo Kohli head of staff Raleigh walakum wa salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salaam wa Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:45:20 --> 00:45:21


00:45:27 --> 00:45:27


00:45:30 --> 00:45:32

allah God is the greatest

00:45:34 --> 00:46:07

glory to Him. He bought me you must to be the best and give his best religion to them. Allah God is the greatest, the long annoying Glory to him on any illness to be the best and give his best religion to them. So why did they know that forgiving gold about an empire that was shipping comes fire and stones sending their best with the cheapest

00:46:09 --> 00:46:20

day ignore that forgiving go about how bad guys are shipping cars fire and stones selling their best work and cheapest

00:46:23 --> 00:46:24
