Welcome to episode number 11. And the beginning of week number three, our final week. With regards to this particular series, especially before Ramadan, our series, the young learners have a chance for us to build genda together every now I know it's a bit sad, you feel a bit sad because we are going to miss each miss each other but hopefully hopefully Allah will gather us again. But before we think of saying bye bye to each other, a temporary bye bye for we think about putting a comma in our journey together and I promise you it will be a common won't be a full stop. And I really appreciate all your lovely messages coming in asking me to come up with another program after this. So I
promise it will be a comma, inshallah, it won't be a full stop. But once again before we think about all of that Alhamdulillah we have plenty of happy moments together this week to learn so much from the inheritance of
the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Alhamdulillah even though he passed away, he left us so much knowledge for us to benefit from until the day of am. I welcome you all. And as I welcome you all, especially welcome goes out to Salida Shiraz, who is just five years old, from the United Kingdom, and also a special welcome to us to fire us from Yemen, who is living in the UAE. He is six years old welcome use of and also a special welcome to my makira Annie, who is six years old, from Manchester, as we discussed last week in Sharla, in terms of your homework and the call outs, or the work that you sent in inshallah, I'll do that at the end of our episode today. Now, before we kick
off with today's session, and today's week on Vermont, we had a bit of a problem on Friday knows what the problem was on Friday. Does anyone know? out there? Yes. We had a bit of a problem.
There was no jumar Well, okay, that was true. That's different because we normally go to the mosquito on Friday afternoon says there was no tomorrow that was a problem. The handler was merciful. He gave us door if there's no drama. But I mean, we had a problem with regards to our episode, what happened to our episode on Friday.
So panela our live session together on Friday got deleted somehow, YouTube says it wasn't their fault. I think it wasn't my fault. But in any case, the episode got deleted. However, Alhamdulillah some of one of our elderly students is not so young is not between the age of six and 12. He's much older, he managed to find some of Friday's episode that was being streamed on other YouTube channels, and he managed to piece them together for us. So at least we have at least more than half two thirds of Friday's episode. So if you missed the quiz, if you missed the quiz, because that episode was deleted, please go back and search for Episode 10. You'll find a stitch together Episode
10. And in the description box, we have all the information regarding Friday's homework, and also regarding quiz number one and quiz number two. And also to make it easier for you all. I've put you the answers. Okay in the description box for the questions from Episode 10 that you will find in quiz number two, I've put you the number where the question is, and the answer as well. If you go in the description box of Episode 10, you'll find the answers to the questions that
we have in quiz number two, because quiz number two obviously was deleted. So that helped you deserve and you will find the answers there. Alright, without further ado, let's kick off week number three. In our first week, our theme was never too small to do big great things. Even though you small you can open the gates of Jenga, even though you small you can build houses in Jenga, even though you're small, you can change the world like the hoopoe bed changes, guys. Alright, in week number two, we discuss the second pillar of Islam Salah. Right in good detail. So Pamela and many parents wrote to me just a secret between me and you. Many parents wrote to me and asked me if I can
teach week number two for the parents Subhana Allah so they benefited a lot in sha Allah, just like we all benefited. In week number three, we want to discuss another pillar from the Pillars of Islam and that is the pillar of fasting and because fasting happens in Ramadan this week.
He's about Ravana and fasting. And for those who are counting down, there's about 11 or 12 days before Ramadan begins, depending where you come from. Okay? Different countries will start on slightly different days, they'll probably be one day apart or sometimes two days apart. But in general, we have about 11 to 12 days left to Panama to Panama Ravana is about to visit us and I can see on the live chat Mashallah some people are already fasting, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless all the little boys and all the little girls Mashallah who are listening that they are fasting today may Allah accept your fast and make your effort now a reason for your fasting in Ramadan to be much
easier. I mean, we are okay, so remember we said we can't talk about fasting before we speak about Ramadan. Ramadan is the month in which in which we fast right Khadija, by the way we have Khadija on the line with us as always accountable and they send you all a special Salah as well. In fact, you know what Subhana Allah last Friday, Khadija brought her capital just right, but the episode got deleted so she asked if I can bring Jess back into the episode inshallah sometimes during this week, we will bring Jess back into the episode Okay. All right. So we can never discuss fasting without discussing Ramadan. So we have to speak about Ramadan and that's what today is about today's about
Ramadan, and the virtues of Ramadan. Now what is Ramadan? Is Ramadan, the name of a horse? Have you just said no. is Ramadan the name of a car? I usually
give me give me a name of a car that you know
sedara Masha Allah siara means Chi in Arabic. I thought she was gonna say Lamborghini because sometimes she tells me about Lamborghinis. So remember, is it the name of a car? Is the name of a street? No is the name of a country what
is the name of the month of a month Mashallah told us Ramadan is the name of a month which month in the English calendar or the Islamic Islamic calendar because when we count the names of the month in English January February March we don't have
a week say January February, March April May you
know we don't do that. All right, so Ramadan is the name of a month but not in the English Canada but in the Arabic calendar. What number month is it is the ninth month as Aftab told us, they well done after Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. And what are the rest of the month to help us with the rest of Canada. Yama tell us what are the names of the months of Islam?
Men and women What would you have and then we'll move on.
Yeah, no know after my wife, we have clothes. We have Shaban then then we have after champagne.
And the head jack says that mug rather than Barack Hello, May Allah increase your knowledge. I mean, Mashallah increase you and Abdullah and Khadija and all the boys and girls out there. We all like Chris you all acknowledge me. So the robot is the ninth month of the Islamic cabinet. And
Ramadan is special, from a very special and Allah subhanho wa Taala. He creates different things. And he gives importance to some things over other things. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala does. He gives importance to some things over other things, right? Even though he created everything, but Allah can make some things more special than other things. Let me give you an example. Allah created the days of the week. He created the days of the week, but he made more special Friday the day off jumar Allah made it more special than all the other days of the week. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the best day upon which the sun rises is the day of Juma and he
teaches us that on Friday, Allah created Adam Adam Salaam, our Father, and on Friday, Allah placed him into Gemini.
And on Friday, Allah removed him from gentlemen, because he made a mistake, but Allah forgave him afterwards. Right? And maybe we'll learn that inshallah when we do the story of Adam alayhis salam
But he made a mistake. So I took him out of general on a Friday. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam also taught us that the day of the AMA, the date of the AMA will happen on a Friday. So panela on a Friday. So Friday is the most special day of the week. Okay, on Friday, we have one hour before Mother's Day.
In which if you raise your hands and make a drag to Allah, Allah will answer your door. That's on a Friday. On Friday, we have Joomla No, it has tomorrow. Right? So Friday, Allah created it like Allah created Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, but Allah made Friday. More important, isn't it? Okay, then we have the best days of the year. Allah created all the days of there. But Allah chose 10 days, and a lot of stuff these days are the number one the best days in the inside.
Aha, let's first answer the question which are the 10 days.
The first, the first 10 days of the ledger, the first 10 days of the hedger the first 10 days of the month of bullhead. Jia are the best days of the year.
You see? And if you have a Friday after the same Why did you have a Friday in the first 10 days of the of the of the hedger then we say that is super special, no doubt because Friday is the best day of the week, and it comes in the best 10 days of the year. So Allah created all the days.
But he chose the first 10 days of good hygiene and made those days the best days. Okay, let's take another example. Allah created all the nights of there, all the Knights who created the Knights, Allah, and Allah then chose 10 knights and allows him these 10 knights, they will be number one.
The end of number one, the last 10 nights of Ramadan. The last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best nights of the entire year. And then even how Allah created the nights and then he chose the last two nights of Ramadan, right? Allah created the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And he picked one night from those 10 nights and he made that like, even more better, even more special was that my quote?
Layla to the night of power, the Night of Decree the night of virtue, Allah subhanho wa Taala he created all the nights of the year and then he picked 10 nights and he goes these nights are more special. And then he picked one night and he said this map is even more special. So Pamela, okay. So like this Allah created the months of the year,
and he picked one month and he made it the best of all months, and that is the month of Ramadan. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said say to Sunni, Shia Ramadan, the best of all month is the month of Ramadan. The festival month is the month of Ramadan. Subhana Allah. Now, Allah says in the Quran, Allah who used blue Masha,
Allah says Allah creates what he wants. And a light chooses some things to be more special than other things. Like Allah chose the month of Ramadan to be more special than the other months, even though Allah created all the months.
I haven't said another example. I'm just giving us another example for you all, he says a lot of creative people, but he made the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of all people, I sent that mud well done. Well then, and very well said. So Ramadan is the most special month of the year. Allah chose it and Allah can do what he wants, when he wants, how he wants us. And if I won't use alone, no one can ask a law why'd you do this? But Allah will ask us why we do things. The law is in charge. Remember we said last week is the King of Kings is that he is in charge is the there's no one above Allah. Right? Allah doesn't answer to anybody.
We answer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the question I'm sure is going, I'm sure you have a question in your small minds. Well, your big minds, but your small bodies and your small heads because you all young children, right, but your minds are big. Doesn't matter if you have a small head inside your head. There's a big mind Mashallah, that can do big things, like we discussed during the first week. I'm sure in your minds, you asking. Why is that I'm Avantika
Why did he come on? Well there's many reasons for this. The first reason
Mashallah he's on the board today Mashallah Remember last Friday we we couldn't hear from his voice he said What's happening? Are you feeling tired today? I haven't his child
it's the month of the Quran. One of the reasons there's many reasons why Ramadan is the best month of prayer. The first reason one of the reasons the first one who today, as I had said, is it's the month of power and why is it the month of Quran? Because in the month of Ramadan, Allah revealed the Quran.
Allah says, shall Ravana d
Allah says in the month of Ramadan Allah revealed
Mashallah, Xena was born in Ramadan. You know what Xena even I was born in Ramadan and even said he was born in Ramadan Masha, Allah hamdulillah. Okay, so the month of Ramadan is the month of October.
But we know and I have a question for you all. I don't want you to answer me now. Maybe we'll answer it tomorrow. I have a question for you or pay attention. Are you ready for the question? Ready? Did the Quran come from a lot to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one whole piece? Or did it come slowly over 23 years?
Okay, the answer to the question is the Quran came down in 23 years. It didn't come one time. Right? Right. It came down in 23 years every day or every few days, Allah subhanho wa Taala will would send down gibreel Allah He served with the Quran to teach prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So here's the question pay attention. If the Quran came down in 23 years, what does it mean when Allah says we reviewed the Quran in Ramadan? Think about it, think about it. inshallah. Tomorrow we will answer that question, okay. If the Quran was revealed over 23 years, and Allah says in the Quran that Allah revealed the Quran Rama
What does this mean? Think about it, and inshallah tomorrow when asked that question, so one of the reasons why Ramadan is the best month of the year is because it's the month of Al Quran. Allah revealed the Quran in Ramadan. That's number one. Number two, another reason why Ramadan is the best month of the year.
Before that, what do we do number one, we fast Come on guys, we first right? We first Ramadan is the month of fasting, the month of one of the pillars of Islam. Fasting is a pillar from the use of Islam. Like Salah is a pillar from the Pillars of Islam. And in terms of idea we said the pillars hold the house up, isn't it? Maybe you did meet the Lego house. We had police. Right one of the pillars is called fasting and Ramadan is the month of fasting so this is another reason why Ramadan is the best of all months. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says after he teaches us that Allah revealed the Quran in Ramadan, he said femen Shia he demean Kumu sharply so that who ever
witnesses Ramadan meaning if you are alive, and Ramadan comes, you have too fast, you have too fast now obviously this is for for this is if you get to the age of puberty, okay, you get to the age of puberty, then you have to fast and you can ask your parents what the age of puberty means. Okay, if you smaller if you're younger, if you're seven years old, eight years old, nine years old, 10 years old, you haven't reached the age of puberty, then you don't have to fast just like you don't have to pray. But remember what Salah we said that the prophets of Allah Allah wa sallam told us that from the age of seven, we should try to pray, we should start practicing. So even with fasting, if you're
seven years old, try even if it's for half a day, a quarter of a day, it's meaning it's okay. You're allowed to do half a day fast. forward today fast, isn't it? Yeah. Khadija, when she was small, she used to wake up with a Baba, I'm fasting.
And then two hours later, she used to say I need my mood now. And then I say, Are you fasting? She goes, Yeah, I was fasting. I'm breaking my fast I'm finished fasting.
Yes, and sometimes used to say, I'm going to drink my milk, and then I'm going to start fasting.
So if you're seven years old, eight years old, nine years old, practice fasting, let your body get used to fasting okay? And then when you get to the age of 10
Not to ever miss a fast. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't tell us to do this with regards to fasting, but he told us to do this with Salah. Remember he said start praying by the age of seven, and at the age of 10 make sure you don't miss any Salah. So the Sahaba were the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they used to
make the children fast or try to fast at least from the age of seven, and from the age of 10 days to make sure they don't miss any fast. Why? Because they said fasting is a pillar of Islam, and Salah is a pillar of Islam. And if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us with regards to Salah that we mustn't miss any Salah from 10 years old and we should try praying Salah from seven then Ramadan and fasting is also a pillar of Islam. So we should do the same thing. We should start practicing from seven and also make sure we don't miss it from the age of of 10 Okay, Mashallah. We have some people fasting here. Ready? Mashallah. So Ramadan is special because it's the month of
Quran and it's the month of fasting. But also it's special because it's the month of taqwa who knows what taqwa is. Does anyone know the meaning of step or? Anyone? Anyone out there behind the camera? Do you guys know the meaning of taqwa? All right. inshallah. I'm gonna teach you taqwa in this week. Okay? But for now, just understand that Ramadan is the month of taqwa because Allah said,
Yeah, you have levena coochie barley, Kumasi. coochie Birla levena mukava, Nicola
Abbas it Oh, you who believe
you have to fast like people before you have to fast and allow you to fast so that maybe you can get tougher. And I'm going to teach you about inshallah during this week, so make sure you don't miss any episodes. And once we talking about not missing episodes, make sure you like this episode, subscribe to the channel and share the episode with your cousin's with your friends and tell them not to miss the episode. Tell them to watch the recording and join us tomorrow until the end of the week for the live sessions inshallah. Okay, so one of the reasons why Ramadan is special is because we fast and fasting helps us get taqwa as Allah said. And taqwa is one of the keys to go to gender.
But I'm going to teach you more of our taqwa later on each other.
Why is Ramadan special? Well guess what? When Ramadan comes, the doors of gender are all open a lot opens all the doors of genda and they stay open for the whole month of Ramadan. So as you pass away
you're gonna go to gentlemen, you don't know about that I'm really saying if you pass away in Ramadan if you go back to online Ramadan and you're a Muslim and the doors of gender already opened then you probably going to go to gender yes inshallah. inshallah but we also if you you right, you said if you possibly Ramadan and you're a Muslim because even non Muslims pass away Ramadan right. But you have to be a Muslim and we say inshallah, inshallah it's a good sign inshallah. If you pass away in Ramadan and you're a Muslim and you're fasting, then it's a very good sign inshallah, that you will go to gender. But in terms of Ramadan, one of the one of the reasons why it's also special
is because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when Rama van comes, Allah opens all the doors of Jannah and Allah locks all the doors of Jana it locks them right? And Allah chains the shell thing it ties them what is tying them in this time they mean they can't move. No they can move but now it's more difficult for them to move and that is why in Ramadan we find it easier to be good boys and good girls. We don't get so angry we don't fight so much. We find it easier to pray Salah right? We pray that we we wake up too fast we don't see on sleepy wake up was to hope in Nevada, something comes to hold. So her refers to the food or the meal that you eat at some time. So what
time is the time before fetcher? Right before fetcher starts right? And we wake up and we eat and we don't do sleepy we wake up happily. Why? Because Shabbat is not their talent. Go back to sleep Go back to sleep. Come on you tired Go back to sleep. It's still a no shavon can tell you that. Why? Because he's chained. He's very far away. If he talks to you is from far away not very close. Right? Right. So that's amazing. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in
in the sun net in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when Ramadan ends
And begins the doors of the heavens are opened and the doors of jahannam are closed and this year we have tied a lot of ties there.
So they can't move too much right? They can travelers they can travel us too much. Okay, Marcia let the sun just came out today we had rainy weather where we are Mashallah. We are in the desert in Rio, right? Like I told you in Friday's q&a we live in way out in the desert so it hardly rains it's upon Allah today we woke up and we saw clouds and it was drizzling. It was amazing but as you can see, the sun just came out and hungry left for the rain and and hungry left for the sun. So remember this gates of gender open gate some gentlemen closed should have been tied up so this is another reason why Ramadan is special. Also, why is Ramadan special? Allah forgive so many people every
night in the month of Ramadan, and decrease that they all go to jahannam the Hellfire but Allah is gonna put them in jail. Every night in Ramadan. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a narration in his teaching, which one of his companions called a boo mama taught us a boo madman said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at every breaking of the fast when you break your fast when you fast in the day, and now you're thirsty, and now you're hungry, and now you're counting. So I know how many minutes left?
I got hunger in my tummy. And I want something yummy in my tummy, right? So you counting the seconds how many times to install, how much seconds are left, how many minutes are left, and then Alhamdulillah the amount of noclip happens it's lovely time. What happens you break your fast when you break your fast the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah loves the so much that Allah forgives so many people that we're going to the fire because somebody knows what everyone's going to do already. Right? So they've already been doing bad things. Allah forgives them for the bad things that he did. Allah writes that they will go to the gym every time you break fast. And how
amazing is that? All right. Abdullah also told us another reason why Ronnie special. Why is Robin special, Abdullah said because it has landed to Qatar. We're going to learn about later this week in Sharla. I'm going to teach you everything about layer two. What does it mean? How much rewards do we get? What should we do? How do we know if this layer two or if it's a little color? I'm going to teach you about that this week as well. So we have this special nine called Laila to color. Also, Ramadan is special because whoever fasts all of them Avan, they get the rewards of fasting 10 months 10 whole months to handle. I remember we said, What Salah whoever prays five spoiler alert, he will
get the rewards of praying 50 Salah whoever fasts Ramadan, Allah will give them the reward of fasting 10 months, why 10 months, because there's 30 days in a month, and a lot of promises to multiply our good deeds by 10 at least like Salah is five times 10 equals 50. So if we fast 30 fast, what's 30 times 10 330 times 10 is 300. And if we have 30 days in a month, and we have 300 days 300 divided by 30 equals 10 months to Panama so ever fast one month, one month times 10 equals 10 months because 30 days times 10 equals 300 days and this 300 days in a month so this is another reason why Ramadan is special. And last but not least before we end today's episode, Ramadan especially this is
Reason number 10 so I've given you 10 reasons why Ramadan is special, right? Reason number 10 is because number one is a month of forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said between two or more bands is forgiveness. Whoever first one comma one and then they fast the next move on next year. Allah forgives all the minor the minor sins minor mistakes Remember we said last time there's major sins and there's minuses right? The minus ones Allah forgives you between last Rama and this Rama
reminding us about a lesson which we took last week which we don't have time now to repeat, but you are correct, but well done. Right backpacking is a major lesson when we said my innocence are forgiven between the two. Ramadan's and be like, like my innocence are forgiven between the two Salas and hamdulillah. how merciful is Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us the month of Ramadan. So my dear boys and girls
Ramadan is coming to your house. And Ramadan is going to live in your house for one month. Okay, you have to prepare for this guest. Think of a visitor who's coming to visit you. Let's say I come to visit you or Abdullah or Armando Khadija comes to visit, right? And they're going to stay in your house one month,
Surely you're going to prepare a room for us, you're going to get some nice things to put in the fridge for us to eat, you're going to make sure you change your timetable. So you're available, right? You're available for us, that's what you're going to do, right? You're going to try and do that. So that when I leave your house, I'm happy and I say Alhamdulillah and I say Jazakallah I had such a good time with you all Ramadan is coming. And Ramadan is going to be a visitor and a guest in your house. Okay, and for one whole month, so you need to prepare for Ramadan. How do you prepare for Ramadan? By using the days now up to them Ivana? Well start planning now start thinking about
what you want to do in Ramadan, and start doing it now. Okay, that's what you need to do. Because if you start practicing from now, then you be able to do those things in Ramadan. Okay, and we're going to talk more about that in sha Allah when we come back tomorrow, and also during the remaining episodes of this week. Now our time has come to an end. Sadly, I do have call outs for you all. But what I will do is I will read the call outs from today, tomorrow, okay, so don't worry, I have your names with me, and inshallah I will call them out tomorrow, at the end of Episode Number 11. And the beginning of week number three, don't forget to check the description box below, in the description
