An in depth lecture about it’s virtues, practices, and how to gear up for Ramadan.
April 27, 2017 at the Valley Ranch Islamic Center.
diamino Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Corinne for the early he was lucky he was Selim to seem interferer so usually for the last few Tuesday's I've been competing with the presidential
primaries don't have to do that today. And there's beautiful news from the primaries today. The Senator Ted Cruz is coming home from the dinner back to Texas.
And that's really why we're happy, right? Because we want him back.
So anyway, you guys don't have to check any NBA scores. You don't have to check any presidential primaries. I have your full attention this week and tell what's on it. So tonight is going to be a different halaqa we finished kids I will imagine we finished the book of fate from Al Bukhari hamdulillah.
And so today, I wanted it to be sort of a wild card because I don't I didn't feel like I wanted to start a heavy chapter before Ramadan actually comes in and shallots, so we'll make use of these Tuesday nights inshallah, for some of the academic studies that would be related to them a lot. And it occurred to me that, you know, obviously, one of the things that many of us do is that we automatically skip shot, and we skip the month of shotgun in looking towards Ramadan. And there are many things that are to be said about this time period that we're about to enter into. There's a lot of fabrication, there's a lot of innovation, and there's a lot of signal. So trying to actually find
out what we're supposed to be doing how we're supposed to approach this month in Charlotte's as a means of preparing ourselves for Ramadan is very special. So we're gonna talk about the month of shutdown, everything about the month of shutdown the deets about it, the thick of it, how the profit slice of them used to deal with this month and what we should be really doing in preparation for Ramadan. First of all, why is it named shutdown? Now when it comes to the Islamic calendar, the history calendar, there's something you need to keep in mind every month is named either after the weather or after war. All right, it has something to do with the weather or it has something to do
with war. So in many situations, many of the months when when the history calendar was instituted, or when those months were made, it came within that particular season. So they'll be obviously meaning spring jumada being winter, even though it's a lunar calendar, and obviously it's going to come out of place at times but when these months were named, they were named within those particular seasons or Milan was called
before Melbourne but llamada refers to Melbourne refers to the ashes to the to the heat the extreme heat, right and normal bond because the first time they fasted on a bond, it was under intense heat. So sometimes it's about whether many times it's about where you have a short and how long you have the four sacred months, which are we're in one right now.
Siobhan is not a sacred month.
the fourth hedger comes Luca Raja
The ricarda the hedger, Mahara, the time that the headjam Harlem are altogether meaning of their character, and their hedger are the last two months of the year? Well, how long is the first month of the year, our job is all alone. And actually, the meaning of the word runs up as a top off, which means to stop because the Arabs were used to going to war for a long period of time and then suddenly runs up came out of nowhere, and it stopped them it made fighting forbidden. Okay, so it has a lot to do with war. And obviously, within a short of how long the connotations of the sacred months to the pre Islamic Arabs was that these were months they honored these months, these were
months that they could not fight that they could not that they could not go to war with one another. So they put their tribal warfare on hold. And that was something that was, you know, becoming accepted to all of the Arab tribes, however, what they would do is they would play around with the month so sometimes they delay a month, because they wanted to finish up a battle, or they bring the month a little bit earlier or they join a few and the last kind of Allah prohibited them mixing up months because they did that to their advantage at times just like they manipulated everything else. They managed to manipulate the calendar to get themselves out of that. Right now obviously the
Islamic connotation of a sacred month a loss of hundreds out of mentions in the Koran that not just to fight not just to avoid a pita fighting with one another and so on so forth, but lots hopefully more enforcer calm don't don't abuse yourself speaking within the meaning since within the sacred months is far greater or a far greater than they are outside good deeds generally are more appreciated or multiplied. And sins are worse in these ones than they are outside of these months because they're sacred months. So that's the connotations of the sacred ones. Now, Chabad is not a sacred month. In that sense. It's not one of the actual
How and neither is Oman. See the word sacred is deceiving because you automatically think what are the best months of the Islamic year? Right. But again, it has this connotation to say that they're that they are Muslim that they are forbidden months, there months in which sin is even more strictly forbidden and fighting, fighting is even more strictly forbidden. So what about Siobhan? What does Siobhan has to do? Now again, you can either view it within the connotation of whether or warn him I've been to Ireland. He documents both of these possibilities he says that one of the reasons why it could have been named shotgun he says Be Tasha Ruby him the Apollo will not be too shall obey
Him. Apollo did not. Which means that in this heat and things that they're going to go forth with, with not at all Melbourne coming around the corner, what they would do in the season was they start to search for water. So they start to carve out their wells and get their water ready for the season that they were about to embark upon. That's a few feet within weather. In my opinion, Allah knows best. The second option that they've been has over him, Allah mentioned seems to be the more correct one historically, which is often the hot.
What What that means is they would wait for Ben to descend upon their, their enemy tribes, right, because they kind of held off and runs up out of nowhere. And as soon as Siobhan came to Russia obey Him, they would jump upon, they literally descend upon the tribes they were at war with so they were waiting for the months to come in, so that they can attack those tribes that they've held back from during the month of Rajab. So again, it's it's usually referred to as whether or not this month from from a historical perspective as well. This is the month in which Ramadan was legislated. The first thing of Ramadan was legislated the second year after his law, so in shutting down the second year
after his law, the fasting of Ramadan shuffled on the one allele, Lindsey, the Federal Court and the entire mandates of festival Obama was legislated in that month. Okay. It's also most likely the month in which the Qibla was changed from Jerusalem to Mecca. Because unless of nomadic about the law and was said that it that the change of couldn't the King 16 or 17 months after they made his way to Medina, so that would mean either Rajab, or shutdown of the second year, most likely, it shut down as well. But there's no evidence to say to the 15th of sharp that, you know, obviously, when people are trying to gather everything about the 15th have shut down, they just start throwing
everything in there. So there's nothing at all to suggest that it would be the 15th of Shabbat. However, most likely, you can imagine it was quite momentous. The second year after a change in fibula. A Watson panel is out Allah says quantum hydrometer offer exactly natural most parents Allah mentions what karateka Jana cometan was Safa Lita Kunal Shahada, Allah na sala honors the Oman sorts of Baccarat with many praises and then they get the greatest gift the wall which is the fasting of Ramadan, right that the news that they will be fasting Ramadan, this all happens within this month, the second year after headline. Now what are some things about charbon that we hear from the CFO of
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam First of all, are in some of the A lot of times
she says about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and so he can become Bacardi. Somehow. Intuit Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is stuck Melis Liana Sharon in Ramadan. I have never seen the Prophet sallallahu wasallam fast an entire month without stopping except for the month of Ramadan. one or a two X orocrm and ninho fee shut down and I did not see him fast any months after Ramadan as much as He fasted the month of shutdown, meaning he only fasted slice a lump hit the entire month of Ramadan. In every other month. There was some exceptions to this fasting. But in Siobhan, she said I've never seen him fast any month outside of them along the way that he did in shaba. And she says
that this was a preference of the prophets lysozyme it was not merely by coincidence, and this is important to point out an authentic hadith and Sunnah Maasai You shall not be allowed to tada and he says, Can I have a headbutt shabu de la Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the asuma who shut down Bell Canada flew the autobahn. She said we'll be alone Tyler and her that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or the month in which the prophets lie Selim loaned too fast more than any other month realizing Arabic there is my head, but she's saying he loved it. He loved too fast this month, more than any other month. It wasn't the job done. And she says balcanica will be
Ramadan. She says that he used to join it within a month. What that means is what I'm talking about what the law says that the prophets lie Selim foster the entire month of shutdown, there were times that He fasted the entire month of Shabbat and literally it was like the two months coming together. Okay, so that's the
The extent to which the messenger is a lot more than he was what I'm used to fast this month month of shotgun. But it was as if it was connected or joined with autobahn to where it was two months that were faster together. Now the question becomes why? Why do we fast? Or why did the prophets lie some fast so much in shutdown? And this becomes a source of great debate amongst the scholars, and amongst the masses, they shouldn't be debating about anything, but they start to debate about this as well. Right? Why did the prophets lie some fashion done? Is it because of the virtue of the month itself?
Or is it because of the virtue of the month of Ramadan which comes after and in preparation of Ramadan? Or is it because of something the forced shutdown meaning something the Prophet sly, some wanted to get out of the way before Ramadan came, he was making up something out of his a lot of slumps. So there are a lot of possibilities within this realm. I'm gonna put this out there, but that most of what I will say to you is from my favorite author, which is an amount of in modular parking lots on
the verge of him a lot. I will forge who wrote many, many books. In fact, I taught an agile to faceva dogen has mastered the journey to a loss of hundreds and about half of them and loads of great, great, great scholar.
I will fall into the model but somebody who wrote one of the most famous commentaries on the 40 hadith of Unknowing, which is called Leviathan. And the knowledge of Rahim, Allah tala is one of the few scholars that are not few, I would say, Actually, there were there were a lot but one of the more famous scholars that was really able to offer an authentic methodology of spirituality in this religion, and authentic methodology of spirituality in this religion, one that was true to the text, but at the same time, very much so rooted in good luck in Exxon, and trying to pursue more and more of a loss pleasure. So this is the I'm going to use a lot of what he says in this debate and
subplots out and we're going to go through the first hubbies which gives us an idea of why the prophets lie some fast it's so much of this month and Shabbat is actually an authentic hadith inserted in the Saudi, where it was sama bin Zayed of the law and asked the Prophet slicin and why he felt so much and so doesn't get clearer than that. Right? someone asking the prophets why some why he fasts so much of the month of Shabbat. Osama bin Zayed is of course the son of zaidan howdy son, who was at one point the adopted son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And Osama was like a grandson to the prophets why Selim he used to combine him with Al Hassan and Hussein all the time,
may Allah be pleased with them all. So someone will be along with Allah Allah says that I asked the Prophet sallallahu it he was so loved
Yasuo Allah, I do not see you fasting. Any month, the way I see fasting in shaba. Meaning Oussama is expressing a form of a form of amazement, like how come you fast so much? And Siobhan it's amazing why you give this month so much importance. And what's indicated in it what's implied in it, as a scholar say is that you don't find a single Hadith of the Prophet slicin I'm telling the Sahaba to go first Shabbat so it's it's strange because you're giving us so much importance in your practice, but you don't talk about it. Right. So you also have a lot why is it that you give Shaban such importance when you're fasting? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and this is so
beautiful, I'm gonna read it very slowly for those that want to get in trouble. He says that Nika Sharon, young Fuu nashwan who may not have been what he said, this is the month that most people are heedless about its neglected. This is the neglected month between Rajan and normal, but this is the month yaku nasaan. So he's giving the reason so a lot of people don't think about soundbar and really think about what's going on in shotgun. Everything is about Ramadan. Everything's talking about them about we have another one conference Sunday, right? Everyone is programmed, rightfully so and you must have had it six months in advance. But the profit slice on sub, Siobhan has completely
lost between a job and Ramadan. Now if you live in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you would see the effects of Rajab around you because again, there is no fighting everything was treated with its with great sanctity by the Muslims and by the non Muslims, right? So it's not like today where you'd have to think twice about what month you're actually in unless it's on the one right most Muslims who say what month Are you in? Kind of?
Got to think twice about it right? Now if you say you're in Ramadan outside of Ramadan, then you're weird, but other than that, right, it's, most people don't know what month we're in most of the time. So the prophets lysozyme says this is the month y'all could have noticed one thing that was I've been one on one. So that's the first reason the prophets lie some gates. Then he said the second one was
Hola, Sharon, total fat ofI Hill, Isla Abdullah Al amin, and is it is the month in which the actions the deeds of the son of Adam are raised to Allah subhanho wa Taala to be presented. So two reasons number one, people usually forget about Shabbat. It's a neglected month. Number two, the prophets lysozyme says, Well who are shopping on tourist visas are made out? I mean, it is a month in which the needs are presented to the Lord of the worlds. He says that oh hibou and you're finally what an offline headbutt and your fire Imani what an offline, so he said some a lot while he was selling, I love that my deeds are presented to a lot while I am in a state of fasting. So that's the third
reason. three reasons I've been given in this heavy was the first reason I'm gonna go through them in detail. Now. What's the first one? It's a neglected month people forget about it. The second reason
the deeds are presented to a loss of Hannah, what's out of the third reason, which is sort of a sub to the second one.
The prophets like Selim likes to fast when these are presented to a loss of Hannah hotel. So let's go through the implications of this and Charlotte's Island. The first one, the first reason was what
most people don't think about Siobhan. It's a neglected month between a sacred month and Raja and the best month of the mumble bot. So it's between a song that is that a sacred month and it's between the month of fasting, so it's not truly going to get lost in between the two. Right people will naturally look over it. So let's talk about this and Chatelet Salah, and what that means and half of the beloved walking alongside him that was about him Allah to Allah says that what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us is that the best time to show yourself to a loss of kind of what he literally says to show yourself to Allah is when other people are not doing it.
Meaning that's how you actually stand out. When everyone is performing, then you don't really stand out. But the way that you make yourself really known as a person as a person of axon, a person who's striving for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is that one no one else is looking for it you're still looking for his living while you're still looking for his pleasure. And this is a consistent theme that we find within within within the the various texts whether we're talking about the monster we're talking about the weeks or we're talking about the days. So at the moment when Josie Rahim Allah tala says that reflect the word heedlessness in the Quran and the Sunnah, when it's
ascribed to a time, a time of heedlessness, what it means is a time where most people do everything but worship. Most people do everything but everybody. So when you do it, the bother and these times, then
it shows that you really really really want the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you still distinguish yourself in these times with a Baba, you're showing that you are really really really trying to gain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and there are many different examples many different examples that are given. So for example within the day,
one of the narrations and listening about the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim Coronavirus, the head bone here Nabina Larisa 18 being a solo warrior Kowloon, he asserts, when you follow NASA in particular, that the companions used to love to distinguish themselves in worship between the two are racists. And the prophets like Selim used to say make use of the time between the two ages what are the two races
maka Vanessa? So mocha is the minor Aisha. It's the minor evening prayer arratia as we know it is the later Isha prayer. So basically what we find is that these are times that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said a person should make use of meaning what either an A Baba or an in it's either either to be made use of a knowledge on worship. Why? Because it's usually the time people eat their dinner. That's usually the time people are sort of relaxing and unwinding for the rest of the day. So there are numerous narrations of the Prophet slicin. I'm praying multiple records between Market America where he would sell a lot more I saw him go home and shovel the alarm on an area it would be
in his philosophy until the amount of ERISA was made. He keep on praying no often, the man hustler bossy talking more or less at the AMA lane includes the secret time and they said What is the secret time he said, what's between the two ratios macgibbon ratio so he said if a person actually engages in the weapon, between involuntary prayers between mclubbe and Raisa, they are actually praying 200 they're actually praying family because the night in Islam is what's between mclubbe and pheasant, and most people, your fellow people have workflow with their heedless about it no one even thinks to do any bother between macgibbon arratia it's actually a beautiful time because the profit slice I'm
used to mention
This concept of staying in the merger between two salons,
you're forced to do so with the halaqa it's actually a beautiful opportunity to gain that reward from Allah subhanaw taala right to stay in a massive between two salons either busying yourself in knowledge or worship nothing necessarily specific, but the idea is that you're busying yourself with something good to simulate what's the best time to pray pm and
the best time to pray the night the last third of the night Why? Because most people are sleeping. right you're distinguishing yourself between amongst this entire creation saying yeah, a lot here I am everybody else's asleep. Except for your few lovers except for the few a bands that forced themselves to the Jaffa giovane and then novasure ruined olumba home health and well former woman models economic people literally fight with their sides. They get up in the stand before I lost some hands on so yeah, a lot. Here we are. Right? When NASA when NASA Nia, everyone else is asleep. And I'm calling upon you. Yeah, a lot. distinguishing myself by ipomoea. The hardest time to stand up
and pray at night is the most beloved time because it's the time that most people are likely going to be sleeping. We also find obviously that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentions that the best times to do vicus the best times to do remembrance are what row which is the time between them and we'll have prayer. So between the fuzziness and the sunrise because people again are getting their day started with breakfast, whatever it may be. So if you manage to remember a lot of those times it's wonderful and Aroha which is the time between Austin and love it have very few people can find time to do vipkid between Austin and motive and you know what, if you try to start implementing
Likud in your day remembrance in your day, you'll find it much easier to remember a lot Professor than you will between also and loving it because also in love it was just too hectic there's too much going on between the two. So it's even more beloved at that time. So basically, the harder it is to remember last panatela or the or the more likely it is that people are not engaged in a bada is the time that you distinguish yourself in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is one of the most rewarding there us so in this regard. This is in regards to time and place of the most rewarding for us to make Is there a soup the do out in the marketplace? La ilaha illallah wa de la
sharika the whole moon cola hemmed up Will you meet ohioana emotes the Adigun hire wahala Coalition for the prophets lie Some said Whoever says this, upon entering the marketplace, Allah writes down for him 1 million has a lot and erases 1 million so yet and raises him by $1 million jobs. What then that will make sense to the gentleman a lot builds in the house in paradise. Why? Because people enter the marketplace, they're not thinking about a lot. you distinguish yourself in that place by thinking that even as you enter into the marketplace, you're still engaged in victory. So it's a time of reflection.
And working towards Allah, he continues in this regard. And he says that when a person does a bother in a time where others are in tough love when others aren't heedlessness, and they're trying to distinguish themselves in the sight of who Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says one of the consistent things we see from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the idea of hiding those particular deeds, meaning hiding, cuyama lien is highly emphasized, you're not supposed to tell anyone about your FDM when it completely defeats the purpose. Right? You don't tell anybody about your PMS address. In fact, sometimes if you can even hide it from your family members that do so. Okay, that's the idea
here, because it's a time when most people are sleeping. And so you don't want to attract the attention of people, you want to attract the attention of a loss of human lives either. Likewise, a secret fast, no, often fast. A person should try to hide that the first thing you know, just say you're not hungry when someone offers you food unless of course there are times where you're trying to encourage people to fast as well as do it as a group, whatever it may be, but just generally speaking, hide your fasting, just say oh, no, I'm not hungry right now. Right? A person would of course we see from the seller we see from the pious predecessors would hide their fasting for 40 or
40 years without anyone finding out about it. Right? They would fast daily for 40 years, but no one would know about it. So this is the idea here don't make it known to others as well. So just generally speaking, when it comes to worship that's done within this category of worship when other people are not worshiping. Keep it secret. And there's a jump that that I noticed here in alumnos bus I could be completely wrong here. But every single narration about the profit slice on fasting shutdown is narrated either via email
Or on selama, or Osama bin Zayed, which means they're all the people in this household. No one's narrating this outside of his house, it's his wives. And his grandson basically, right the son of his once adopted son who continued to be included amongst the grandchildren of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam which is which means the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did this as a form of total war as a form of voluntarily seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that actually gives us a message that gives us a way that we should carry ourselves that if you're going to fast Shabbat, try to have some secret days of fasting in Shabbat as well, because these are days where
most people are not going to be fasting. And they've been working a lot harder. He continues, he says that. And in that situation, he says, I've been the servant of the Lord Thailand who says either back on the island for us to be home when needed, which means that if you're going to wake up fasting on a voluntary date, he said wear perfume.
How Does that even make sense?
nothing in here, what he means by what he means by perfume here, he means look fresh, smell fresh. Don't look like someone who's tired, don't look like someone who's struggling. And that's why the Sahaba if they prayed, the unbeliever, they would try to walk faster the next day, because if they walked really slow, then people would know that they were standing up all night and praying. So they try to walk faster, they try to look fresher. So then the truth of the law and was said, if you're fasting that day, and you don't want people to know, then, you know, try to keep yourself looking very fresh, try to keep yourself avoiding any type of connotation of zyliss or asceticism or this is
a person engaged in a rebound. Because you want to attract the attention of a loss of hundreds. And that's the point of this. We also see that within Siobhan because because it's in a month of roughly a month of general heedlessness, right, a lot of people want to get their last deeds in which sale theme before they're out. And obviously, they say the same thing. They're going to get really active, they're going to try to make you mess up really bad before they get locked away. Right. So a lot of people will increase some things because you have in your mind that well Hello boss coming around. I'm planning to quit this habit.
You know, so let me kick back and enjoy this last day. Right? Let me go you know, let me listen to the CD one more time and you know, pop out my cigar, whatever it is, hopefully nothing worse than that. Right? Let me just enjoy it for the last day the last few days Ramadan is coming around and so I'm going to quit the salt. Yeah, right. So last three, four days you actually convinced yourself well, you know, let me go spend some time doing some of those things that I plan to quit in Ramadan. So that's a backwards mentality. It's actually a backwards mentality. Obviously you might not live to see them a lot for one but again, you're failing to prepare yourself for Ramadan. And so he
quotes Hello This is beautiful he says that the Sahaba were opposite of this he says that cannot allow will be a well no this is actually a narration about a model and yes it will be alongside I know it's an authentic narration kind of a model while the Allahu taala has yet the Hey yet we saw we shut down camera you saw me on mobile so beautiful. So is there a model the alongside on who used to basically treat his fasting and shut down the way that he would treat his fasting Ramadan? Like it was that serious?
It was that serious to them. Like we're preparing ourselves. We're getting ready. We're in training camp now. So we're gonna play like this is the real game. We're gonna fast like this is the real month basically, he also says that Shabbat is the preparation of the month, of course.
Right? It's not meant to be ignore the plan and how many people that don't leave any time throughout Shabbat, have this goal to finish the whole animal bond and they don't do it. Shannon is the month of to prepare yourself for karate. And so there are various narrations that we see in this regard we see from selama Edna kohane Alhambra, me who was one of the Tiber invoking Allah to Allah, that when people would see him what he would say to them, and the mobile arkoma what he saw his people he says either, either, he says that the ultimate alikum shampoo Siobhan of Chabad comes upon you to follow our rule, the carotid Anil Corinne shop roshe Ban shahidul. ca.
He said that when shotgun comes upon you focus now on reciting the Koran. Because the month of shotgun is the month of recitation. Another narration which is from Ahmedabad Okay, so the a lot of time where I would have no place
to shut down of the locker Han OTA, what's a firewall the karate, that 1111 Siobhan would come around, he would always start closing his shop early and spending and dedicating a time of his day to the recitation of the Quran. This is in Shaban okay. And so a lot of walking Allah says and they used to call Siobhan Sahil Kawa, or Sharon there are several
or several para, which means the month of the reciters or the month
of recitation. What does that mean shopping for rock?
The month of reciters. You know, if you're someone, just imagine if you're someone that's gonna lead.
And it is incredibly stressful, by the way, like, you have no idea. And every time that the mount makes a mistake, and you jump on him before he could even, you know, before he can even think about it twice, you're literally knocking away at his confidence and stressing him out, like you're knocking his stress level up by 2000. Everybody knows, you know, sort of your scene Mashallah, like, whenever the man starts, we're saying, so with your scene, everybody jumps in just, seriously, you don't have to yell from 20 rows back to correct him. And, you know, global law has the people behind them and so they can handle them. Right. But the idea is, it's extremely stressful. You ask anyone
that's lead settle we heard that leaves about a week like they're getting ready. It is seriously training camp, right? Because it's like, you got to make sure that you got it right, you've got the teen hour, right. And so how there are people just think about this, this is probably an emotional rant right now. So I'm going to stop for, you know, very soon, there are people that teach or earn for a living, like they're a father, and they teach for a living hours and hours a day, and they're still making mistakes in subtle ways. You imagine a person who's got a full time job, a person who does not do that, you know, doesn't get to teach and that kind of stuff, and they try to get ready
for it every year. It's extremely stressful, incredibly stressful. So they call this shuffle a lot the month of the reciters. Because those who wanted to prepare themselves for recitation, not necessarily until a week, but in there beyond and for the lofty goal. So let's say, you know, I already have in my mind, I'm gonna do a six month, four or five times over mobile not once in about four or five times and on the bottom, right or two times, just you're gonna bump it up a notch, then you want to step it up in shot up. So they actually called it the month of recitation, there is no way you can completely neglect the poll and shut down and get anything done a normal bond that's
meaningful series, there is no way for you to completely neglect the core and then immediately have a relationship with it. And so if you've been struggling with your relationship with the poor and throughout the year, now's the time to re establish it not normal. And if you're someone that already has a relationship with the Koran, but it's a routine relationship throughout the year, now's the time to make it extra special, in light of a normal bond coming upon you so that you can not get into that next gear and shot lots out. So it was actually called the month of
the month of recitation and the month of the reciters, and Canada Kowloon Shahada, or SHA Rosetta they used to say that the month of Rajab is the month of planting the seeds were Shapiro shut down or shadows were several sub piazzola and the month of Shabbat is when you water those crops and they used to say
worship Ramadan who are chaperone how far this is Allah and the month of Ramadan is the month in which you reap those crops. This is not a heavy A lot of people say it as a hobby. There are a lot of beautiful things about Raja Siobhan and Ramadan like in one sentence. None of them are hideous. Okay, so that they're out for example about you know, making your app for bubble cat image up and shut down and then normal but it's not an act it's not an offensive Cadiz at least okay. Likewise there's there's a bizarre narration but it does get passed around. I think it's Rajab is the is the month of Allah. Siobhan is the month of the prophets I saw them and Mama bond is I know too many
fabricated narrations I'm sorry, somebody that I never heard that before. Well, if you get it on Facebook, then you can go Aha, I heard it right. And they said I'm about as the month for my own. It's a fabricated narration that actually did get passed around. But the some of the predecessors indeed, they used to say that logic is the month in which you plant the seeds. So you're actually preparing yourself from logic. And that's the wisdom of a sacred month coming two months before Obama as opposed to the month before Shabbat is where you really start to water those seeds that you water those crops and then Ramadan is where you're actually going to actually be able to reap what
you what you have sown. And hopefully it's good that you reap in that situation. We then go on to what we've been working on what's our dimensions on the wisdom of fasting Shabbat? What's the wisdom of the prophets? why some another wisdom in regards to taking advantage of this month where most people forget and most people don't do any bother because they're just kind of taking a break before they're about to comes in.
He says that what it does is it takes away the hardship of fasting and we leaving the sweetness of it. So by the time the autobahn comes, you're only tasting the sweetness of fasting and not the hardship.
Meaning what he says Shabbat he literally calls it tambourine. He says it's practice. It's literally practice so that by the time Ramadan comes around, you greeted the call what's in one a shot with strength and with energy. You're not having to get over that slump over the first few days of trying to get used to fasting. A lot of people think there's good in that and because of the Hadith of the Prophet sly, some saying not so fast a day or two before I'm about
Let's talk about heartbeat and and how it doesn't actually apply here you should actually prepare yourself for Ramadan by getting used to the habit of fasting that's not why the prophets lie some forbade fasting a day or two before Ramadan that's a misplaced understanding of that habit. Okay You should because you want to get into Ramadan already accustomed to it you know how to fast already so now but everyone knows the fasting of Ramadan is not like the fasting around the year you can tell the difference even when you fast so what it's not like fasting Ramadan, the fasting of Ramadan has its own sweetness to it it's not like the fasting throughout the year. However physically, you're
accustomed to fasting by the time Ramadan comes in if you fasted throughout Shabbat so that you can just taste the sweetness of that fast you're not trying to get over the you know the long hardship and so on so forth. Because isn't it that the first three four days of Ramadan are the most difficult, right? You're trying to get yourself used to that especially in Texas, you know, and you know, we're Magnum is going to be what, like, eight 830 or something like that, by the time Oban comes around, but don't complain because Mashallah, there are people that fast until 11pm at night, and their, their budget is like 2am. So we've still got to get over here, in that regard. But this
is something that we're supposed to take into Shabbat
is a month, your fellow nurse, one that people are heedless in regards to so it's a time to distinguish yourself with a loss of hundreds, and kick it into that pre Ramadan year, so that you can get yourself ready for it. The second reason given in the Hadith by the prophet slicin, is what
you guys already forgot.
Very good, the deeds are presented to a loss of Hannah Montana on or in that month of Shabbat or offer an early Illa the deeds are presented to a lot during that time. Now, what does that even mean because doesn't last see your deeds all the time and doesn't the loss of hundreds isn't always aware of what you're doing, of course, however, these are the times of hasaan these are the times of accountability. These are the times that your presentation for the date, your presentation for the night, your presentation for the week, it's like it's like annual reporting, or monthly reporting or weekly reporting or daily reporting, a loss a loss paradigm is always watching you. And I was kind
of I was always aware. But these are the times in which your reporting is taking into consideration in a way that that's that's befitting to a loss of hundreds. And the scholars say that offered the presentation of the soul loss of hundreds Allah happens in three different levels. Number one, there's a lot through Yomi which means your daily presentation to a loss of hundreds out of one or your deeds presented to a lot every single day. Does anyone know
during the day
such as an asset, the time of fed up and also is when your deeds are presented to a loss of kind of metalla on a daily basis. How do we know the authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he says that when a loss of Hannah Montana
or that Allah subhanaw taala sends the angels hiding from above arrival will be a lot of time. And they are constantly watching you through the date and the night the prophets license says Malachi Ketchum, delayed woman it had something to half so instead of angels watch you during the date a set of angels watch you during the night you have shifts your angels have shifts their angels that watch you throughout the day, and their angels that watch you throughout the night and he said some a lot more and he was just in the room he saw off and suddenly was a lot the last that they meet all together at budget and awesome. This is where your angels are exchanging shifts, they meet with one
another. And he says then they go to a loss of Hannah hoods.
So the angels as their there's a time where they're meeting each other and there's a time where they're meeting with a loss of kind of what's out. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says there is no home well who will become a lost parents it asks them even though he knows what his servants are doing, Allah knows what we're doing. But a lot asks the angels anyway, he says k photoelectron. Everybody. How have you left my servants feha coloane sokhna home mahonia salomaa I'd say no longer solo. And they say we love them while they were praying. And we chained to them while they were praying. Meaning those shifts of angels because they're switching out at present and also
when they came to you, you were praying and when they left you were praying. So Allah subhanho wa Taala boasts about his servants that are always in prayer. So it's a beautiful thing that when your deeds are presented to a loss of hundreds I went to law asks about you every single day that the angels left you in a timeless law, which is why the prophets lie Selim mentioned, you know, to for a person to preserve a better brain the two codes
Cool the two cool prayers not cool in like the slang sense like cool in the sense like it's cold. Why because in the desert obviously, as it is when you know the sun is about to rise also is when the sun's about to set so it's the cooler prayers in that regard so the prophets lie Some said if you if a person preserves those two prayers, then they will surely enter into gentlemen and they would be amongst those who see a loss of hundreds Allah they invite so that's a daily accounting that a lot of takes of you. The second one is longer was born, which is the weekly accounting that is taken of one is that
there's once a week and there's twice a week but
okay, the night of Friday
the profit slice on
it and Muslim up. It says in that amount of money hire them to kill the homies laser till Juma the prophets lie Selim says that the actions of the son of Adam are presented every single Thursday meaning the night of Friday, so Thursday evening, and he says fellow youth melodrama no party, Allah subhanaw taala does not look towards the deeds of one who is cutting off the ties of kinship and another the profit slice of himself. The deeds are presented to a loss of hunter Machado every Monday and Thursday and the prophets lie Selim says that Allah looks to the deeds of those that are,
you know, in conflict with one another, those that are calling or holding grudges and not talking to one another. And he says I'm little having to slowly leave these two until they fix that which is between themselves. So the profit slice I mentioned when he when he was asked why he fasts, Mondays and Thursdays in particular, he sets a lot of articles about that, because these are presented to a loss of Hannah Montana and I like to be in a state of fasting when the deeds are presented Monday and Thursday, throughout the week are basically fed feathered and also throughout the day, if you guys understand the way this is working, it's within the cycle right? So Monday and Thursday the
prophets lie Some like to be fasting when the deeds were presented to Allah, which connects us to that first of these why the profit slice on mentioned fasting, Siobhan is so blessed. Because the deeds are presented to a lot and you want to be in a state of salon president also, you want to be in a state of fasting so that the angels go to a loss of hundreds Allah while you're in a state of fasting. So it's a beautiful thing. Then you have off center week, which is the yearly accounting of a loss of Hannah Montana, and that is in shaba.
The yearly accounting of a loss of hundreds out of the year the record is in shaba. Well who was shot on trophy hit Armando you all but I mean, as the profits license says it is the month in which the deeds are assigned to a loss of 100 horchata. And he says so I love that my deeds are presented to him while I am fasting. So because Chabad remains that month, and if you guys think about what that means your annual report is coming up in a few days. Your annual report with a loss coming up in a few days. Siobhan is right around the corner you don't have time to be thinking about Ramadan or waiting for Milan to fix things. Your annual report is coming up in Shabaab whenever the AMA
bacala team has the prophets license says that deeds are judged by the last of them. So if you made a sincere Toba at the end of rods up for that what you've done throughout the year, inshallah would wipe out all of that as presented to a loss of hundreds out of in Shabbat I mean 100 million Rahim Allah to Allah he continues on a few other reasons why the prophets lie some with fast shot about Alright, so he mentions three. The first reason innominate Rahim Allah mentions is that the prophets lie Selim had the habit of fasting certain days voluntarily throughout the year. So for example, Monday and Thursday, sometimes or the prophets lie some also have the habit of fasting the three
middle days of the month ayama B, which are the 13th 14th and 15th of every Islamic month. And the prophets lie some had various other days in which he wanted to fast some a lot more and he was, however, due to travel or due to sickness or due to some other reason. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam missed those voluntary fasts. So he wanted to sell a lot while he was selling make up those voluntary thoughts
before Ramadan came around.
This is a level of sun remember, you have to make up a fault. You don't have to make up a voluntary deed if you miss a voluntary deed, you don't have to make it up. But the prophets lie Selim if he did not pray at night, William Sonoma say he did. He made up all his Leon between federal and local.
That's how the prophets lie. Some use the function. He made up even his voluntary BS. It's not really a burden on the oma for us to have to do that. But the prophets lie Selim, he had that standard for himself. It is salatu salam. So one of the things he used to do so I sent him so the first reason he used to make up all the voluntary fasts that he made that he missed throughout the year. The second one, he says talim and the Ramadan as a means
of honoring Armand, he said the same way that you would pray soon not the fourfold
meaning there is a mandatory prayer coming up. So you replace sin and attachment with that fault. The greater the Father, the greater the sooner and the more emphasized the sooner becomes. So, for example, the most emphasized son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is which one, the son of the Son, the prophets license says, look, I think public funds have to work as before funds that are better than everything than the world and everything that isn't more beloved than the worlds and everything that is in it. He would not miss those two cars even if he was traveling. That is the way that no claim or humor was saying that sat down should be viewed. If you want to think of a proper analogy
of Shabbat in Ramadan, think of the Sunnah, fudge it and fudge it Okay, so he says the Prophet slice I'm used to give special reverence by fasting to Aleem and the Ramadan in a way of of looking towards all about so it wasn't about Shabbat It was really about Ramadan meaning what those two guys have a similar feather just to give you some perspective on this because I mentioned this as an opinion of the scholars and it might not have been clear there's two sides of the sinner offensive if you paid them any other time throughout the day they don't have that significance at all. So it's not about the sin the feds it's about Feds itself and the fact that there's two that guys come
before budget so in this opinion, which is the opinion of many many of the scholars it's not Shabbat itself is not special Ramadan is special and because then a bonus special so I've done become special by extension make sense to you guys or not? Okay, good. So that's the second one. Number three he said because the deeds are showing to a loss of Hannah Montana in this month and he always liked to be fasting in those times. So he mentioned what we already mentioned. There is another opinion with some of the scholars events likely mama Salam ala Hema lots out, it's very beautiful, because it actually historically makes sense. He said the prophets lie. Some of them wanted to join
his wives who were making up missed Ramadan fasts in Shabbat.
Because we know that he sold the law and he says that the wives of the Prophet SAW some because of the exhaustion, I mean, everything they have to go through. And obviously, it's a pretty hectic lifestyle for them, they would still be making up the previous trauma bonds fast in shutdown. Now, it's prohibited according or disliked, even prohibited according to the majority of the scholars to delay one previous trauma bond to another normal bond without an excuse, right, there's an excuse like pregnancy or breastfeeding or whatever it may be, that's fine, but a person just out of laziness, not making up the Miss faster formal bond. And the next time a bond comes in it becomes
very problematic. So what a salami says is that the Prophet slice, wants it to join his wives as they were making up their federal trust he would fast along with them so while he was selling, and that's just the beautiful thing, right? The House of fasting is a good house so he settled the law on his fasting the prophets lie some will fast as well. I'm sentimental the law and his fasting the Prophet sly, solemn, will fast as well. So that's those are some of the extra reasons not to go forth and shot lots of Allah. Because we said that is Shabbat or this is a very important question is chatbots special in and of itself, or is it special because of Ramadan? The prophets lie Selim
said, the best month so fast after Ramadan is what month
so authentic hadith Sahih Hadith
The prophets lie some sudden authentic narration. There is no fasting which is more beloved to Allah subhana wa tada outside of Ramadan, than fasting in sha Allah Muhammad, the month of Allah, which is Mohan, a few notes on that Hadith.
First 10 days of the ledger, obviously superior to the month of Muharram as a whole right at the profit slice I'm assuming that as a month there is no month in which fasting is in which fasting is more beloved than the month of Allah subhana wa tada mohalla so the logical angle lots Allah he he actually tackles this question, what's greater
shutdown, the fasting of shutdown or the fasting and how long because there seems to be a contradiction here because the prophets lie some fasted shall burn much more than He fasted, and it's something that was clearly noted by his family members. So he says, and the way he decided he divided this, on the same reasoning the way that the middle column rahimullah reasoned about Shambo, he said that Siobhan to Ramadan is like as soon as a Latina or soon Lakota, meaning a confirmed sinner, like the two records before fuzzy whereas no one would fall in the category of the topo lines, the voluntary fast just the open fasts or the open prayers. So he said that how long compared
to the rest of them
Compared to the sacred months, the other sacred months like lanzamiento card on the edge is a better month. But Siobhan is assumed to still be the greatest sinner because there's no way the words of the prophets lie some can contradict this practice. So his practice here clearly indicates that he meant something else by saying the first thing in the month of mahalo is better. It also could mean once again, that we'll have them as a month stand alone month is more virtuous than Shabbat. But shotguns pass because of its connection to the robot is more virtuous. So he says that's, that's, that's a way of reconciling between the two and half of the 100 working on watts either. He also he
also commented on the hadith of it shall be low on her where she said that I never saw the Prophet slice on fast the month like He fasted, but she he commented on that, and he says that that shows that that's the best month the fast enough to hold on. So Siobhan is an exception to that Hadith according to the scholars, we also find that the larger volume Allah says, this is a very powerful statement to make. He said that if you took the days of the prophets lie some throughout the year, this is a mind blowing notion, by the way, but it makes sense.
Who did the profit slice that I'm saying as the most beloved of fasting and the best fasting? Like what's the best you could do throughout the year? The fasting of the Buddha and
so the profit slice I'm told I'm loving our loss. First he told them fast Mondays and Thursdays are first he told him fast three days of the month, and that's good enough. So be honest ally can do more. You know, I have more strength, and azima I can do more. She said flying fast Mondays and Thursdays. They said fine. You know what the best fasting as the CEO of the Buddha is on the fasting of the Prophet David's peace be upon him though Dyson, he's the fast one day and used to break his fast the next. Now, here's the thing.
The Deadwood already has salaams fast, surpass the fast thing of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam?
How do we know what's the proof of that?
He said on the low end hustles that the prophet SAW Selim at times would fast for so long, meaning so many consecutive days in the year that you would think he was never going to break as fast. Meaning it's it's outside of our bond outside of the sacred days, whatever it may be. The profit slice on him is just fasting every single day to a point that you thought to yourself, he's never gonna stop trusting. Then she said he would break his fast
to a point that you thought that he was never going to start fasting again. Meaning half of his years to lavon he was tell them was fasting. Half of it was not this is outside of Milan and outside of his routine fasting. So when Raja Rahim Allah says if you combine the days of the Prophet slice, and I'm in a year of fasting, they're more than half of the year so his Leon is still superior to those that would
see how amazing that is canola. And there's, there's much precedents for that we find it even from
we find it even from NSF dramatical, they lost out on some of the law and and the third time's the profit slice, and we go on fasting for so long, so many consecutive days, you thought it would never stop. Right? And there were times where the Prophet slicin took a break from fasting to where you thought, Okay, he's done with that routine. He's done with fasting so much, then he'll go into fasting a month or two consecutively. And you say, okay, maybe he's back on it. So the profit slice, I'm used to fast for more than half the year if you take all of those things into consideration, now, particularly what we get into just lastly, the thick of it, is it impermissible to fast after
the 15th of Shabbat or not? Why? Because there's number one, a widely authentic hadith, meaning that Hadith that is agreed upon by the Hadith narrators by consensus, the profits licensed said do not
what's the right word?
I'm trying to look for the right word. But anyway, that's why some of them do not proceed on the bond by one or two days of fasting.
Meaning what don't preemptively basically or pre unfilmable that's the word I'm looking for. Don't like fast one or two days before don't move on. in any way. What is the profit slice I'm talking about here. He's talking about fasting a day or two before Ramadan. Not to prepare yourself for fasting as many people mistake
but in a way that you think that it's soon not to do so it's similar to always be cautious and fast a day or two before Donald Trump starts. So the prophets lie some stuff. Do not fast one or two days before Ramadan, except that it's part of your habit anyway, so the prophets lie. Some said if it's part of your habit, it's fine. Meaning from above is going to start on a Friday. And it's a Thursday you don't and you usually fast Mondays and Thursdays go ahead and sauce Thursday or if you're fasting the entire month of shutdown. Anyway, go ahead and keep fasting
Right, but don't for the sake of Ramadan precede Ramadan or preem form a bond with one or two days of fasting so that's a heavy let's put it on the side completely agreed upon the second Hadith which is one that is not as agreed upon some of the Hadith scholars believe it to be authentic some of them don't so contemporary scholarship about a document what's either held it to be authentic and that is the Hadith where the prophets lie some stuff if missive shotgun comes if half of Shabbat has passed, do not undertake fasting do not start too fast. Again, these two heartbeats are clearly talking about a person starting the habit of fasting or starting to fascinate wasn't their habit now
that to be honest with you, the majority of scholars still believe that it's okay to start too fast after half of Shabbat has passed but the Prophet slicin was really talking about it in spirit he's talking about just like what he meant by don't proceed by one or two days even if it was authentic but again the point being here you don't start too fast when Shabbat is ending. It should be your habit before Shabbat is ending or before half has passed in the opinion of
some of those scholars then you then you should not start too fast so that's the second one there's a third howdy interesting Howdy. Howdy This is in Sahih Muslim Mr. Urban the same will be allowed tada Andrew said that the prophets lie some was asking a person how do you sometimes mean sorry how the Saudi Shia chabanne and the prophets lie some is saying in the month of Shabbat Did you fast from Cyril in Muslim a salon in Bihar is similar okay or subtle? Sorry so it or subtle? Did you fast shadow or the subtle of this month?
And the man said no. So the prophets lie Selim says then in that case, whenever you finish normal bond for some yo mainly mechanic fast two days in its place, the Hadith in Sahih Muslim it's an herbal hottie as well. Now what are sort of and what are still set off, set or set up refer to the last days of the month, meaning the moon has disappeared, the moon is basically secretive. Okay, so the moon is disappearing. So in this hadith that appears the prophet SAW someone is telling a person Why didn't you fast the end of Shabbat? Right? Why didn't you fast the end of Shabbat and the way that the scholars reconcile these are Hadith is that this was a man who was already in the habit of
fasting and the prophets lie Selim was asking him why he broke that habit basically. So again, if you're in the habit of fasting, there's no problem. There's no prohibition on starting to fast on fasting after the end of Shabbat at the highest point of Shabbat or towards the end of Chabad. Now why is there such a strong prohibition on and that's what we get to the prophets lie Selim forbade yom was check the date of doubts fasting the date of doubt I hear again I heard and hoped was and Allah has all the time that the prophets lie some didn't want you to go and try to prepare yourself for fasting for Ramadan like let me try to get in shape now. That's not what the Habib is talking
about. Because the prophets like Selim prohibits fasting a day or two before Ramadan with such intensity that he says whoever fasts you almost check Takada, Allah will cause he's disobeyed the Prophet slice. That's a strong distancing of himself the lauricella Why is it that the profit slice is so strict on this idea of because you think it's a good thing? You know, you know, I don't know what the moon sighting is gonna be like, but I'm gonna pass this day anyway. Right? So I'm not really sure how it's gonna come out and how it's gonna play out. But out of my religiosity
I'm gonna go ahead and fast this date anyway. Why would the prophets lie? Some hate that so much?
It would cause this unity. But what else? theologically? What does it do? Yeah.
It's an innovation actually. It will make home about effectively 31 days every single year.
And the prophets lie some doesn't want that. Because you're going to corrupt the religion. So the prophets lie some strong prohibition of fasting the day of doubt or a day or two at the undershot ban in in anticipation of Ramadan, basically, on the notion on the basis that I want to be cautious and fast just in case someone comes in is a wrong way of thinking. And the scholar say that the Prophet sly son wanted to lead a distance a break between Siobhan and Ramadan the same way he made a break between the Sermon on the fault, right, meaning you can't say okay, I'm gonna just instead of praying to Dr. Carson for fraudulent to that guy's fault, let me just go ahead and pray them for
together, there should be a break. So the profit slice I'm wanting to have a clear break always between something that's similar and something that's fun, so we can say it's soon that's a fast shot up
as soon as the first shot down,
but at the same time a person and the profit slice I'm wanting to have a break between the two. At the same time a person should not try to fast a day or two before Ramadan comes in on the base.
suspect he's being more religious or it's a superior move, because if he does that, then he's adding something to the religion. He's literally adding based on the law. And that would become the culture of the online, the people would, would take that in as a result of that. Now, lastly, the last discussion is, is there any superiority to the 15th? Night of Shabbat? Is there any superiority to this Shabbat, this is where it gets heated. And this is where people start to argue and things of that sort. Now, from a pure or Sunni perspective, from a pure scholarly perspective, a textual perspective, it really depends how you grade the Hadees that have been narrated in that regard.
Because the vast majority of the body are highly problematic. So if you consider some of those bodies to be authentic about the superiority of the night, then obviously you will assume that position if you don't consider those to be authentic, then as the scholars would not assume that position. So the vast majority of the edits we can say for sure, are actually fabricated, they're not even somewhat weak, but they're actually fabricated altogether. However, there is one hubby's which is authentic Fisher so beautiful Hadith. The Prophet slicin um says yet for Allahu Fie Laila to Muslim and shaba for Yossi Rowley, Jamie hulka he in the Lima speakin, oh Masha, when the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah subhanho wa Taala looks to all of his creation on the 15th night of Shabbat which would mean the 14th day 15th night and for your funeral it leaves me healthy Allah subhanaw taala forgives all of his creation except for a disbeliever or a militia and Amazon is a slang right we it's a charger, right? And the Arabic language but most often is someone that has in their in their heart, Shanna, which is a heart that's consumed with hatred. Like it's not just enmity you don't just dislike somebody but you have such spike in your heart towards a person that is literally consumed your heart so it's taken away your capacity to love a lot. It's a
focus and everybody it's immersed in hatred. So the Prophet slicin said a lot looks to his creation on that night in the love forgives everybody except for someone that falls in one of those two categories if you have code for if you're a disbeliever or if a person has that hatred. Why because we already said that the prophets lie some has established a lot of rejects the deeds of a person who's at war with with his brother or sister a lot does not even look at their deeds. So we can establish now when you connect the Hadees that the deeds are presented to a lot and shutdown and a loss I don't want to add an issue issues and amnesty across the oma This is to calm everyone down
now because I told you guys your annual reporting, your annual accounting, Allah will forgive all of the oma Subhana Allah, He puts it all to the side before Ramadan so like gives you a clean record before Ramadan starts. Except for a disbeliever or a wish I had and another the other authentic narration so these this hadith is authentic in two ways.
The only difference is that the second word after mushnik and the other Habib is caught to know someone who murdered someone else. Now obvious so so the secondaries in the profit slice I mentioned a disbeliever or someone who murdered someone else. Obviously, if Shannon grows, if a person becomes more shocking to an extent, they would actually take the life of a person. So what that shows us is that the 15th night is generally a night, which obviously has some virtue established in the hobby. There's a general virtue now that's established that a loss penalty looks to his creation and the loss of Hamlet to Allah forgives everyone on that in that regard. Is it labor to recover? that's a
that's a narration a very weak narration that's attributed to a coma. But Hema Lazzara that's rejected, obviously, by the by the vast majority of scholarship.
Is it soon not too fast that data is as soon as the fast the 15th of shaba.
Yes or no? I'm going to wrapping up in a couple of minutes inshallah
is similar, not
as similar to fast the 13th 14th and 15th of every Islamic month.
So it's similar to past anyway, so the debate is irrelevant. Is it soon that's a fast because it's the 15th of Java and there's nothing to establish that is as soon as a fast anyway, on the 15th of Shabbat. Yes. Is it a time, the prophet size some taught us that our deeds when our deeds are being presented to a lot, it's soon that to be fasting anyway? Yes. It's similar to remove the hatred of our hearts and make sure the grudges are gone. Yes, all of that is a sweetener to be established. So how do we find a balance in approaching this night? Number one, we can derive from the tax that it is generally a virtuous night. It is a virtuous night clearly, right. So there's a basis that our
boss will be allowed to actually trace to him that he called the Laila tomorrow.
The day that the soldiers are freed Why? Because again, a lot of times, it looks to the, to the believers he looks to the woman a loss or grants amnesty across the board to all of them. However, all of the specific practices that have been narrated have no basis. So all the specific practices that have been narrated have no basis. So for example, the oldest, the oldest innovation is called a lot of elfia, which is to recite the poles about recite 1000 times and Salah that's actually dates back to the 10th or 11th century, the fourth century history and you have enormous loyalty wrote against that even though we are having a lot wrote against it, and so many scholars were against it.
So the specific actions that usually find them like a narration or whatever it is, none of those actually have any authenticity to them. However, you know, what we find from the mama shelf or from the moment Kodama from a number from from even the shirtless almond Tamia Rahim, Allah to Allah he wrote about it in his much more of half of the banal job but he models to guilty is that this is a night that's to be observed with a burden, the general sense because it's a virtuous night, every night is a good night of every middle of the month isn't is a time of fasting. So yes, there is no harm in short, lopsided in a person. In that sense, knowing the virtue of that night doing the
things that are legislated in the sun anyway. Right, not attaching a particular practice to it, but instead of just observing it because of its virtue, that's a legitimate opinion that has very strong evidence to it and a loss of power to Allah knows best. So inshallah we'll do that. And then I'll take questions from you guys. And then we'll go ahead and we'll do the salon. Shall we want to lay this a lot too long. So let's go ahead and do the other. And then we'll take questions in Charlottetown.
And then we'll move on to salon. La Mancha.
No more hammer that was.
Okay. We'll take a couple of questions. And Sheldon, we'll start. We'll go to salon.
No one has questions, Michelle. Yep.
One day one.
The sailplane being locked up. One or the sales being locked up. The Hadith about the sailplane being locked up is not
not all of the sale thing are locked up. What it what the Hadith means is that either and actually the most the strongest opinion, their effect is reduced. So the big sale thing are locked up, their effect is reduced. But this if there were no sale things and you know, husband wife wouldn't fight you know,
I remember actually, you know, brother coming to me, you know, first day and he's like, I don't believe that. He said, Why? So because I'm still fighting with my wife. I'm like, Okay, well, you've got issues. Number one, obviously within yourself, you need to work out right. But the idea here is that sailplane are not completely eliminated. But that takes place with the entrance of Ramadan, which is the night of Ramadan, the mother of which the moon is cited. Basically, he's undecided and Ramadan enters.
How did the profit slice I'm celebrate eight. That'll be another class and
that'll be another class. That's too long.
Sister? Yep, sorry.
So it's acceptable obviously, look, the idea here is that again, this is a legitimate fklf amongst the scholars. As I said,
what I would say is just to be on the safe side The intention is to observe what is unanimously a sooner which is to fast any of the middle days of the month. Okay, so you fast the 15th day in Charlotte time, that's that's as soon know, regardless, it's a matter of the intention. So you make the intention to be in accordance with us, one of the prophets lie so we know that it's good and hopefully in short, while you gain the reward as well. You know, when your deeds are presented to a loss and hands on, and the lost parents, Allah forgives the entire oma on that night?
Is there a hadith that in the middle of the month the deeds are presented to Allah? Not that I know of, I personally don't know. I need I do not come across any of them. It might be but I'll research and shall but I can't think of any Hadith in which the prophets lie. Some mentioned the 13th 14th and 15th as being months in which the deeds are presented to Allah. Yeah.
If Allah is watching us, why are the deeds presented to Allah? subhanho wa Taala?
So, did you come late?
I talked about it in the beginning of the class and shall soon go back to the beginning of the recording. Yes.
Is there a directory of fake IDs? Lots of them. But the problem you know, look, I mean, generally speaking, how do I get you know, people ask this question, how do I generally avoid fake IDs are fabricated? How do you stick to the well known collections? Like there's plenty in the game there's, you know, the first dates a person should know or the 40 hundreds of being nominated and there's plenty in the all the slaughter Hanan the authentic collections what are known in the authentic collections, but there are numerous numerous, numerous, false Hadees and sometimes again, the layman in their overzealousness will also classify a hadith that is authentic as being fabricated because
they think they heard on a website that had these are fabricated so for example, I mentioned the authentic hadith of last hansala forgiving everyone on the night of the 15th of Shabbat. Many times people attacked and said that's a fake Hadith the fabricator had these Why? Because I read it on a website. Well,
it's authentic Howdy. So generally, a lot of fake edits honestly, a lot of fake edits are just so obviously fabricated, you kind of get a gauge for it once you start knowing. Once you once you immerse yourself in the study or listen to them commonly, I mean, you know, the Hadith says that whoever you know, goes to Mars on this day and on the 15th of Siobhan and prays 1000 guys on Mars and then 60 on Jupiter and comes back a lot will forgive them and 500 of their family members. Usually the heads with a lot of numbers are fabricated, but don't assume all of them are. Alright, I'll take two more questions. inshallah. Yeah.
There are many common rallies. But if I was to go through all the common narrators of fabricators it would be a very long like, that's a study within. So for example, most of the Hadith about the virtues of particular schools of Quran are from a particular fabricator, like you can identify him in the chain. And he said that he did that because he found people being too fascinated with a number honeybook anymore. So he said I saw people getting too attached to him when he found his folk so I wanted to go and make up a bunch of idiots about the pull up. So people would love the Koran more than the SEC of Abu hanifa. So most of the Hadees that are known about the virtues of sutras
Alright, last question.
Okay, does that qualify them? Next week I'll be in my second home of Malaysia inshallah. We will not have class next week. We will start in Shell outside of the week after that. We asked the last printout to bless our lungs of our shutdown and bless our Ramadan and we asked last time to allow us to prepare ourselves properly for it. What I mean is that more famous come from Hamburg so do alive today
Long has been a long walk though.
