Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh brothers and sisters and welcome back to ask Muslim in this blessing month of shadow Ramadan. Today in short love we want to ask the billion dollar question and that is a total carrots versus 20 little carrots in total we're a total carrots of total we we discussed that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray this amount and there was a certain method or style and how this is done. So where did 20 come from? Eventually, as time progressed in the province I sell and passed away and the oma started to grow more and more women and children and the elderly started to come to Islam. And this continued all the way until
the time of our automotive than hot tub during his family photo, the loved one. Now I'm gonna have no hot tub had a problem during his time. And that problem is, is that he started to notice the Tuttle which was slowly disappearing. In other words, more and more people did not pray total anymore. And I would have the hot tub was a person who had wisdom, he had knowledge and he was a thinker. So he noticed right away that if people were going to stop praying total we there's a possibility that the oma will forget this act of worship and it would no longer be practiced anymore. So what would have been hot tub did is that he took the style of total we're now remember
one of the reasons why people weren't praying total Li is that it was just simply too difficult to pray like the prophesy centum Can you imagine standing up and reciting the three longest soldiers of the Quran. Imagine the elderly and children trying to do this, it's extremely difficult, so people just didn't want to do it anymore. So I'm going to build a hot tub in order to preserve that what he did is that he took a total cards and he cut it into pieces. And that is when 20 rakaats of total v was born. So he took the eight, he cut it into pieces. And so as a result, he shortened each of the raw cards, the length of total, we will shorten, but the amount of raw cards were increased. So that
way you had a nice balance. On the one hand, you can still preserve the sweetness of total we, which is that it should have at least some moussaka as we call an Arabic, it should have some tab or some difficulty, you should feel a little bit of strain in your feet. So at least you get that that feeling of the totally that feeling of tahajjud because after all, the word tahajjud actually comes from the word HD head, which means to work very hard at something and put a lot of effort to it. So I'm going to be a hot tub preserve that but at the same time made it easy for everybody, because now you could rest after all, after the tour rokerites have totally and as well as after the full
records of total leaf. So that's when 20 rakaats is born. Now the question here leads us to another problem. And that is how much of total where should you be praying? There's an important principle in a solo flip and that is when it comes to certain acts of worship. There is no there is no limit there is no specified amount unless it's been specified in the Quran and Sunnah sin x can be done as much as you want them to be done. So you can pray as many little cards as you wish unless it was specifically specified in the Quran and the Sunnah. This is why Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah used to pray more than 300 Records a day, even taymiyah used to pray similar amounts every single day. And this
is what human medical Rahim Allah when he was the man of Medina, he used to pray between 36 and 38 records of total, we, the people of Mecca used to always pray 21 and the reason for the differences of course, after every photo cards, the people of Mecca used to perform tawaf, whereas the people of Medina didn't have that option. So they would just continue praying. So clearly shows here, the total we had does not have a specified amount, or else the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have told us this is the amount of total that I want you to pray. So I hope in sha Allah that clarifies the eight versus the 20 little cards and shout Allahu taala. As the month progresses,
we're going to talk about what happens to those individuals who choose not to pray the 20th or choose not to follow the man in whatever the Imam or whatever the gemera or the masjid is praying, what is going to be the ruling in terms of that situation. So we'll talk about that in sha Allah, Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our deeds in this Blissett month of Ramadan whatsoever morning
