Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu brothers and sisters and welcome to Ask Muslim I just want to say before we begin our Ramadan Mubarak to each and every one of you And may Allah azza wa jal accept our efforts in this blessed month of shuttle Ramadan. So today we're going to look at a question that is related to the blessings of Ramadan. And that is, of course, the total we, a lot of people ask about the Torah we what exactly is it? And why do we have to pray it in the month of Ramadan? First thing that we want to know about total, which is exactly what this word means the word total, which is actually the plural form for total, we had to tell we had two means to relax

00:00:50--> 00:01:29

and to rest. And the reason why total we is called that is you notice after every four records of total, we people usually rested, and they take that time to just get a drink or do whatever and then they come back and they continue and this happens every photocards of thoroughly. So that's how it's been given its name. Another name for tadoba is also to have Jude and pm Elaine, total we is 200 as well as 200 is total we and the reason why we say that is the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray total, which was of course during the latter part of the night. So that's the first thing when it comes to understanding total we have what it's talking about. The second thing

00:01:29--> 00:02:08

is, of course, the ruling of the ruling of tarawih. According to the vast majority of Parliament, there's actually an EMR or a unanimous consensus about this. And that is total which is a certain act of Islam. What that means is that if you do it, Allah azza wa jal will reward you for your efforts. But if you don't do it, depending on the reason, of course, if you don't pray that Allah azza wa jal won't punish you for not praying it. The evidence for this is once the prophets I send them he comes, he would come out of his home, go to the masjid and he would pray, then there would be a bunch of the companions would come and start following Him in prayer. And this happen

00:02:08--> 00:02:45

consecutively the first night, the second night, until he came to the third night where the prophets I sent him notice that the gemera was actually growing, more and more people were coming to pray with him. And so he didn't show up. And then the companions when they were waiting for him, and they asked him yada, yada love We waited for you to come out and praying you didn't show up, how come the browser is set up says I didn't want you guys to feel as though this was wedged or compulsory upon you. I didn't want this to be difficult upon you. So I wanted to show you that you do have a choice when it comes to total we so that's how the ruling is extracted. Here's the third point. The third

00:02:45--> 00:03:25

point is talking about the history of total we where did it come from this? This actually started off with the Prophet sallallahu arati, who was some of them, which we'll talk about in more detail as we continue in sha Allah. But the point is, is that today we started during the time of the province I set him went through to the companions, you're in town, Abu Bakar, oma earthman, all the way until today. And the last point that we want to make brothers and sisters is the blessings of total we the prophets of aloha it was seldom said in an authentic habit that whoever stands up in the month of Ramadan with a man and he said so with faith and with optimism in their heart, hoping

00:03:25--> 00:04:05

for the reward of Allah azza wa jal, then the reward for total we for them is all fear Allah who massacred them in them they all have their sins are going to be erased from them. Can you imagine praying every single night in total, we're an all of your sins are being wiped out from you every single night you do this, but the question is, how do you get that reward? How do you confirm that that reward has been written down for you? These are some of the things that we'll be talking about throughout the month of Ramadan. So I hope that's a good introduction in sha Allah for all of us to understand the blessings, the ruling as well as the history of this beautiful act of worship
