foul speech, okay. So so it can it can mean it can refer to obscene language or it can mean any type of marital content I'll leave it like that. Anything that leads to them okay. So, the province of line of Southern says here that fasting is a shield so on the day that you are fasting, there should be no refer. There should be nothing that leads to marital relations.

00:02:41--> 00:03:09

What is Hubbard and he doesn't speak loudly argue these types of things and shouting, this is a sub to speak loudly and to be loud and vulgar. But inseparable. I don't know katella hopefully I saw him so somebody insults him or attempts to engage him in fighting or something like that. He just says I'm fasting I'm fasting.

00:03:10--> 00:03:22

well enough so Mohammed and beheading Isla follow him sign up to the law humiliate him misc by the one and whose hand in Mohammed soul is in the

00:03:23--> 00:03:42

Rena Byelaws paradigm, the smell that comes from the mouth of one who was fasting is more beloved to Allah Subhana tada it is pure it is better than the smell of musk. This saw me far.

00:03:43--> 00:04:07

The fastest person has two times when he is extremely happy either after Friday Have you felt very well either lucky are both fairly heavy. So me. If he breaks us faster when he breaks us fast. He's happy that he is gotten the opportunity to break as fast. And when he meets us Lord subhana wa Tada. He is happy that he

00:04:08--> 00:04:29

is happy that He fasted the part of this heavy and we want to focus on a shallow tada is the part where the profit or loss of having data says if this is part of the footsie a CMO genetic fasting is a shield. Fasting is a shield. It is a protection and we're going to do

00:04:30--> 00:04:53

before I tell you what the scholars of Hadith have said about this particular part of the honey you're going to do is with the person sitting next to you inshallah, for the next two minutes, you're going to talk about what you think this means. How do you see fasting as being the protection? What are you doing effects?

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

I'm asking

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

abstain from food. Okay, that's why

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

What else? Don't

00:05:03--> 00:05:14

forget what you're doing for what what are you doing? You abstain from food. Okay, what else? You're staying from relations with your family? Yes, sir.

00:05:15--> 00:05:22

stain from foul language. Okay, Santa. If somebody says something that's found they break the fast

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

Okay, so okay we'll get back to that.

00:05:30--> 00:05:49

What I want you to do when the rules for fasting the rule for fasting is that you're abstaining from food and you stain it from drink abstaining from relations with your wife and anything else that is going to is going to break your fence from when to win. sunup to sundown right. Now

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

let's try and get

00:05:53--> 00:05:53

from

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

from fighting to Muslim. Isn't that sunup to sundown?

00:06:00--> 00:06:00

Yes.

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

No one is there from

00:06:06--> 00:06:07

from No.

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

You can't you don't get the answer. That's cheating.

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

Somebody else?

00:06:14--> 00:06:18

Just before the sunrise. Okay, was that 15 minutes before sunrise? That's

00:06:23--> 00:07:07

what 5g is done. That's saying that we're done. Okay. So from dawn until sunset, not from sunrise to sunset. I only say that because sometimes important. You'll see that sometimes in the literature, especially when non Muslims write about the fast they'll write from sunup to sundown. You know, this is when Muslims abstain from you know, these things from sunup to sundown, and then people get actually get confused about that. And so they'll eat until Sunday look at it, you can look at any calendar. And you can see when sunrise is, and when sunset is sort of a person fast from before, right before sunrise, the sunset, the net fast is incorrect. Fast is incorrect, because you have too

00:07:07--> 00:07:19

fast from budget, which is done until sunset. Okay. So now, I'm giving you a chance to think about something with your partner right now, you're gonna even I know you didn't come with a partner,

00:07:20--> 00:08:01

you're gonna have a partner right now you're gonna with the person sitting next to you is no exception. So the only way there is an exception is if after everybody partners up, there's only one person left. That person is going to join the group with somebody else. So there'll be three people, that's no problem. In fact, if you want to be three, that's not a problem. What I want you to do for the next two minutes, is I want you to talk about amongst yourselves, how is fasting a protection thing about this question, right? How is fasting and protection? What is a what? Is it a protection from? What is it a protection from Okay, what are two questions?

00:08:02--> 00:08:03

What's the two questions?

00:08:06--> 00:08:11

How's fastener protection? And what is it protecting you from? Okay, you got two minutes.

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

No exceptions probably.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

Share them could be.

00:08:47--> 00:08:52

Right. I'm all for how to build a nursing

00:08:55--> 00:08:55

home.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

Okay.

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

So you got one minute left.

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

30 seconds. I'll throw in another question.

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

Where does it protect you?

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

10 seconds

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

Hope you guys got some good answers

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

okay

00:10:17--> 00:10:48

you can get it you get a chance to get back with your partner and leave in seller know really really because it's it's important that that this that what we do today is very practical. You don't want to just come and listen and you go home with nothing so inshallah scmo Jinnah the province licensing fasting for the could be from the part of the head eaters could see fasting is a protection like question number one How's that? How's that a protection

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

yes

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

okay protection from the Hellfire

00:11:01--> 00:11:01

fire

00:11:03--> 00:11:12

Okay, so the doors of hell fire are closed during the month of Ramadan, the doors of general open fire that's a lot of protecting he's the one that closed the doors not your fence

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

is closed in front of the people is not fenced.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

So my my diabetes can pass the month around

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

still close by which you want to something?

00:11:24--> 00:11:28

You answer is right. It isn't protected from now fine. Yes.

00:11:34--> 00:11:47

Okay, so it protects, it protects that person who is not married from doing things that would be displeasing to a las panatela based on and that is based on another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

Shiva, Minister time into one batch,

00:11:53--> 00:12:00

oh young man, for those amongst you can who have the ability to get married, then let them do so?

00:12:01--> 00:12:16

Well, Melania and whoever cannot finally meet the soul, then he should fast but in no way. Because it is a protection for him. Right? It we jet it means that it is a

00:12:18--> 00:12:31

it breaks his passion, if you will, and it slows him down a little bit. None of us, protect you from yourself. So it's protecting the person from himself, which is an interesting concept. And we've talked about that.

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

on a few occasions that

00:12:35--> 00:12:46

you have to have a relationship with yourself. So it is protecting you from yourself, right. Anything else? What is it protecting you from? How does it protect you? When does it protect you?

00:12:49--> 00:12:55

Okay, protection from the Hellfire because you fulfill an obligation. Scholars have had it set by Mr. Milan,

00:12:57--> 00:13:23

that the protection that is mentioned in this hadith that is there it is a June a protection or a shield. Think of it as a shield. And as a matter of fact, some of the scholars have equally talked about this. They want you to picture that. They want you to picture yourself in a battle. You're in this battle. And what is it that is going to protect you from the enemy Spears from the enemy's arrows, you have to have a shield.

00:13:24--> 00:13:40

And just imagine that we you know, if you have a small shield, right, it only can protect like this much of your body, it's only going to protect a very small portion of your body. Is that shield really effective?

00:13:41--> 00:13:46

No, it's not an effective shield? What if the shield has holes in it?

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

Is it an effective shield?

00:13:51--> 00:14:07

No, it's not effective because a person's arrow can go right through right to that shield. And if it's too small, if it's too small, it's only going to cover a certain part of your body you're vulnerable. And this is what happens when a person does not fast correctly.

00:14:08--> 00:14:13

And that starts with the objective offensive.

00:14:15--> 00:14:27

Meaning that our Prophet alayhi salatu was Samson min sama, Rama vida he men and what he said will feel at home and

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

make them be whoever facts, the month of Ramadan.

00:14:35--> 00:14:49

For what because of his he men with men. And when he said he said means he's seeking that reward from Allah subhanaw taala he will have his past sins forgiven.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

We understand from that Hadith is that a person who does not fast imagine YT seven out of true faith, belief in the loss of heaven.

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

And belief that Eliza Magellan is obligated us to fast this month for our benefit, not for his benefits.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

But for our benefit.

00:15:10--> 00:15:18

Whoever does not fast in that manner, that they won't have the reward that is mentioned in this Heidi, they fast is going to be deficient.

00:15:21--> 00:15:40

What are some examples of that? Some people fast, because everybody in the family is faster. And you brothers have to be very careful sisters as well. They have to be very careful with our children's that they are not simply fasting. Because we're Muslim and everybody fasting Ramadan.

00:15:41--> 00:15:54

This is, you know, we have to stop at this point for a second. Because what you'll find, and this is prevalent on social media, Ramadan, tips, Ramadan tips, what are they telling you about?

00:15:56--> 00:16:05

series, if you type in something like that on YouTube, or any other form of social media tips for fasting, the month of Ramadan, they're gonna talk about how to hydrate in the morning.

00:16:08--> 00:16:29

To not overeat, they're gonna give you all of these, you know, tips on how to eat and what to eat during the month of Ramadan. And if you want to work out, you don't have to break your routine, just make sure you do it at this particular time. And you can do it right before fat. And in all of these, these are rounded diet tips. In other words, everything is focused on what

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

it's all about food, the month when you fast, all of the tips are about food.

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

It's an interesting phenomenon.

00:16:38--> 00:16:46

That everything now that circles the month of Ramadan, now is centered around food

00:16:47--> 00:17:10

tips on how to keep your routine, your same routine that you were already on. How do you keep that daughter mother Ramadan. So you bodybuilder you do this and you go to the gym and you go, you can still do that. And Ramadan, you just kind of got a target night into the day and your day into the night. And this is what Ramadan is about why this is cultural Islam.

00:17:12--> 00:17:29

This is cultural Islam. And we face that many of us may have accepted Islam. But you face that with the next generation of Muslims, if you don't cultivate them from the very beginning, that this is a great form of worship, for a lot of parents.

00:17:30--> 00:17:36

And out of the pillars of Islam. It is the one form of worship

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

that you don't see.

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

Which makes it very different from a lot of the other forms of worship that we do. It's nothing stopping your child whenever nobody else is around and taking the drink of water.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

Nothing correct.

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

You are trying to inculcate in them one,

00:17:58--> 00:18:08

that Allah subhana wa tada is Washington that allies are jealous that he knows what they're doing that they are leaving off these things that they naturally crave,

00:18:09--> 00:18:26

to delay gratification. So how long. And this is something that as time goes on, we lose this as a as a culture I'm talking about as Americans. You know, they used to be a time when if you wanted something that tasted good

00:18:27--> 00:18:52

that you actually had to wait a few minutes, right, somebody actually had to cook. And then you just throw it in 45 seconds, a minute and a half. And then you go well, art is a meal, right? Because everything has become about instant gratification. People can't even read anymore, because everything is just send me over a text 140 characters or less.

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

And this is what life has become.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

When you now

00:19:00--> 00:19:00

see,

00:19:01--> 00:19:09

and I'm just talking about from a worldly perspective, gratification that you have when you break your fast. How does it feel?

00:19:11--> 00:19:38

Does it feel like any other time you just want to get lunch? go have dinner? Absolutely not. There's a totally different sweetness to whatever it is that at water has a totally different It tastes like something I don't know any other thing. You know, it's like nah, take this kind of drink. But what it has, has certain properties, it just feels different. Why? Because you've delayed, you've delayed that gratification and you've done it for a last panel time.

00:19:39--> 00:19:50

And that in and of itself is a major form of tunnel vision, if you will, that you know that we get to the point that we are willing to

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

delay certain pleasures so that we can please a long span of time and then a lot as an adult is going to give us

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

Much more than whatever it is that we left off. Metallica the profit is like two cents and Tanaka sheet in the lab. I wonder who hired me.

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

Put this in your minds.

00:20:16--> 00:20:40

Spread this to your families who ever leaves have something for Allah, Allah is going to give him better than that. And many times you will get what is better than that in this dunya Not to mention the reward that you get from the loss of habitat in the hereafter. But it has to be left for Allah. You don't leave off that food.

00:20:41--> 00:20:49

For anything else, you don't leave it off just because your family is leaving, leaving this off last mentality he meant and what he said

00:20:51--> 00:21:08

with me, he then all of his previous sins will be forgiven. So back to this part of a cm June. Fasting is a shield. If you're fasting is deficient than its protection will not be what it's supposed to be. It's going to have holes in

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

sweida prophet alayhi salatu salam gave us other instructions so that we would protect our fast from the things that cause holes to come into the shield. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said many of them yet they're called a zoo. When lamina v. What Jasmine fillet said in there he hadn't and yet to come.

00:21:33--> 00:21:45

I want us to ponder and reflect over this heading the province of why he was so upset whoever does not leave off. polis or what's called is your wisdom STEMI.

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

What would you say? Is the top now exactly? I just

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

call the zoo. What's that mean?

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

You know, Colin Saunders from cabana in.

00:22:02--> 00:22:06

The province of Linus is from the major sense, it's not something we should be unaware.

00:22:07--> 00:22:15

We should know what the major sins are. So that we are very careful to avoid what is that? Well, this code is doing

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

several things you said.

00:22:22--> 00:22:28

what's called me cada Yoku colon speech. Okay, a word statement. Okay. So

00:22:31--> 00:22:34

fasting, okay. Like you.

00:22:35--> 00:22:42

Sometimes it's translated as bearing false witness which comes under it. So for example, just for example, let's say that

00:22:44--> 00:23:06

you wanted somebody to get something. So you made a false statement to an insurance company so that you could get a claim, or you wanted you were a witness to something, and then you exaggerated how it actually happened, so that you could get more back then that is called a zoo. That's a false claim. And this particular Heidi Lem Yaga, colasoft,

00:23:07--> 00:23:15

ever does not leave or false speech. Many of the scholars say that here the probably sounds referring to any form of lying.

00:23:16--> 00:23:26

Whoever does not leave off false speech. And acting according to false speech and Jasmine. Jasmine means here.

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

Just being foolish, yeah.

00:23:31--> 00:23:49

Being a seven, or being, you know, easily agitated, all of this comes on to the last panel data, has no need for him to leave off his food in his training. Like, think about this does a loss of habitat I didn't need anything.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

No. alarms, my job needs nothing. Who else?

00:23:55--> 00:24:02

Who else well, honey, which means that he is free of meaning, he is rich, free of the last

00:24:03--> 00:24:13

time. So what does that mean here, when the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says that Allah has no need for him to leave off, to leave off

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

as food and drink 70.

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

That means that the

00:24:22--> 00:24:47

part of the etiquettes of his fasting is that he does not lie, and that he does not. He's not aggressive in his behavior is not easily agitated. If a person lies. This is why a father and other scholars of Hadith say that this hadith is a clear indication that anybody who lies while he is fasting, then the reward for his fasting is void.

00:24:50--> 00:24:50

Think about

00:24:51--> 00:24:57

anybody who lives I'll tell you, some of you may not think about it like this.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

You

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

You are on the way you're late, you're running late, you're supposed to be going to see somebody. They say, Where are you, you know, you're 15 minutes away, you say, I'm five minutes away, you know that's called, it's called a line.

00:25:14--> 00:25:19

That's called the line, you can try to do it any way you want.

00:25:21--> 00:25:30

What the scholars of Hadith are saying here is that if you do that, while you're fasting, you have no reward for your fast,

00:25:31--> 00:25:45

which is a deep concept. Because the lust hands Allah says, in the song for in the who Li what msdb, except for fasting, fasting is for me, and I reward for it. So look at this.

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

In other narrations of the same Hadith,

00:25:50--> 00:26:18

Allah Subhana, Allah has mentioned that for every good deed that you do, He rewards in 10 times to 700 times over, you give $1 you give $1 for last pentatonic, and it's multiplied 10 times. That is that on your scales on your milk em, and it says if you've given $10, it's as if you've given up to $700 except for fasting.

00:26:19--> 00:26:23

Fasting doesn't have that limit.

00:26:24--> 00:26:29

But just imagine, because you live, you destroy all of

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

you know why that's important.

00:26:34--> 00:26:41

And for those of you who may be, I don't know, a clip by Gabler. I don't know about a month ago, I mentioned.

00:26:42--> 00:26:47

And for those of you who were present, then as they say, repetition is one of the best teachers

00:26:50--> 00:26:56

that the that the average American lies 11 times a week.

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

So that that's about one and a half lives a day.

00:27:05--> 00:27:13

But that's just the average that's like people that don't even know that's like counting people in nursing homes and things like that, that don't even talk too much about anything.

00:27:14--> 00:27:16

So when you get down to the nitty gritty

00:27:17--> 00:27:23

dining people are lying on a daily basis 234 or five times

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

in a subprime.

00:27:27--> 00:27:42

And so what's happening now is that as a Muslim, you are conscious of this, Heidi menlyn colasoft ever does not leave off false speech. You're conscious of that man.

00:27:44--> 00:27:51

And so, when a brother asks you what what's up, are you on your way you say, look, to be honest with you, I'm running late.

00:27:52--> 00:28:01

I'll be there in 15 minutes, inshallah. And you know what happens after that, you start to realize that it's gonna be okay.

00:28:04--> 00:28:07

That you don't have to lie, to impress somebody.

00:28:08--> 00:28:24

You don't have to lie to create a false reality about your life, which is what some people live for. Life is just not exciting for them. So a lie by God did this analogy is like the, you know, like the action heroes or something because life is just too dull for them.

00:28:26--> 00:28:27

And then you realize

00:28:29--> 00:28:33

that everything you say, is being written down.

00:28:34--> 00:28:42

And that the loss of heaven to Adam is going to hold you accountable for every single utterance

00:28:44--> 00:28:57

and that becomes something that now as you fast you have a heightened awareness of them. And so you for a full 30 days don't tell one time

00:28:59--> 00:29:02

you know what happens after that becomes easy to tell the truth.

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

And Eliza Magellan told us in the

00:29:08--> 00:29:13

tough luck. Well, who knew my side up? Oh you believe

00:29:14--> 00:29:58

fear Allah, have Taqwa of Allah be conscious of Allah, which is your whole objective, right? Which is your primary objective. Fasting the month of Ramadan is to achieve tough one and two what along with that? Stop there will kulu Masada pain and be with those who are truthful and that truth will incorporate truth in speech and other forms of being truthful, but that's one of the most obvious and so it's very important. You know, that as you fast you think about these things because otherwise your shield is going to be punctured, not from the outside. But from the inside. You're the one cutting holes in your own shield

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

and

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

Your fast is not the protection that it is supposed to be for you. And so, as many of you mentioned, fasting is a protection

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

from the punishment of a loss penalty.

00:30:15--> 00:30:21

And nobody should feel safe from alliance of adults punishment.

00:30:22--> 00:30:29

novelist pantallas or ofis Rahim he's about man, all of those things. But his punishment is severe.

00:30:31--> 00:30:36

And an airman min metric that is for a person to feel safe.

00:30:37--> 00:30:43

From a loss of Hannah, what's sad is punishment is also a major sin.

00:30:45--> 00:31:02

We don't talk about it, because it's not adultery. It's not backbiting, it's not this, a lot of times the actions of the heart are ignored. They get ignored, because you can't see it. But feeling safe, like oh, I'm good, I lost friends out is not going to punish me.

00:31:03--> 00:31:18

That's a major sin. It's opposite is also a major sin, to despair from a loss Mercy is a major sin. For a person to feel like they will not be forgiven by lumps penalty is a major sin.

00:31:19--> 00:31:31

And that's because it's going to push them into more sin. Not to mention that it's so abundant, less fantastic, that it means you have bad assumptions about allies, as if his mercy

00:31:33--> 00:31:42

is less expensive than your sense as if his mercy can't encompass your sense. But a cm fastening is a shield.

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

It's a shield in this life. And it's a shield in the next line.

00:31:49--> 00:31:54

And so shields in this life because it protects you from bad character.

00:31:55--> 00:32:01

Look at the rest of that howdy the prophecy, some said. So if it is the day that you are fasting,

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

then stay away from obscene behavior.

00:32:06--> 00:32:10

And stay away from raising your voice and arguing less calm.

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

Which is part of good behavior.

00:32:15--> 00:32:25

And if somebody tries to engage you and this is something else that we have to be a little bit more conscious of, especially in a society where we get agitated frequently.

00:32:26--> 00:32:30

And sad, but who somebody is coming out there assaulting you.

00:32:32--> 00:32:37

Maybe on another day. You just had your power drink you just come in from the gym,

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

working on the mats. And somebody insults you.

00:32:42--> 00:32:45

Yeah, immediately reaction is To what?

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

To respond and can't

00:32:48--> 00:32:52

you. It's not hard for me to do what you just did.

00:32:53--> 00:33:02

But when you're fasting the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is trying to get us to train ourselves to do something else. So what do we say when somebody insults you when you fast?

00:33:03--> 00:33:04

fast?

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

And you say it out loud and you say it to yourself?

00:33:10--> 00:33:20

There's a difference of opinion most guys, but the strongest opinion seems to be that you actually say it out loud. You say it to that person to let them know, I have the ability to respond

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

fast. And I'm going to

00:33:24--> 00:33:29

I am going to fast which means to reframe.

00:33:30--> 00:33:47

When you fast, you're refraining from something upset, right? Too fast is to refrain from eating and drinking. Right I'm going to refrain from from responding because I'm fasting and that fasting protects me from bad behavior.

00:33:49--> 00:33:54

In the process of lining was son of said that the heaviest thing on the scales is what

00:33:55--> 00:34:06

good character is good character. At metal, many men, accidental colocar and the most complete of the believers in faith

00:34:07--> 00:34:14

is those who are best in character. We shouldn't take this stuff lightly. We're like we shouldn't look at fasting

00:34:16--> 00:34:17

as being

00:34:18--> 00:34:25

something as simple as refraining from food and drink from sun from from from dawn to sunrise.

00:34:26--> 00:34:33

And that's where it stops at all of the tips that we have about Ramadan are about how do I

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

get over these very hot summer days? How do I make it through making it through a light when you do it for lunch? Even your children are going to make it through without much problems. Without many problems. That's gonna be the easy part down the line. The difficult part is redefining who you are, is to become a different person that Ramadan becomes a true

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

setpoint.

00:35:02--> 00:35:04

And what happens when you check yourself?

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

What happens when you take account of yourself when

00:35:11--> 00:35:14

you find your fault, because I follow Him, because we're not angels.

00:35:16--> 00:35:27

We have faults. And so when you check yourself and you check those faults, then be in the lab, you can start to make a plan to change. What is wrong

00:35:28--> 00:35:29

with me later.

00:35:30--> 00:35:33

And the best way to do that

00:35:35--> 00:35:39

the best way that you can plan your change is to read the book of a loss.

00:35:41--> 00:35:58

You know why? Because the loss has added details for us the characteristics of the believers, the characteristics of the people of tough work, and by a loss of data is not one of us doesn't fall short in some particular category.

00:36:00--> 00:36:06

And so when we read the book of allies of Magellan, we have those aspirations to become from the people of tough one.

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

Then be in the legs, Adam will begin to make that change. I have a question.

00:36:13--> 00:36:17

How many of you plan on reading

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

the entire

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

raging?

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

fight?

00:36:26--> 00:36:31

So if you're going to read the entire plan and Ramadan, how much do you need to read every day?

00:36:33--> 00:36:45

A 30th. Fight Jews and Jews everything fight. So by show of hands, I want everybody to participate. How many of you plan on reading the Jews of Quran every day?

00:36:49--> 00:36:49

Okay.

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

When do you plan on reading that juice every day?

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

After fudger

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

throughout the day,

00:37:05--> 00:37:16

throughout on throughout the day, okay, so, so something happens in a particular day and you just get tired of how does that work throughout the day? Just kind of break that down from

00:37:18--> 00:37:24

every slot. You're going to do what? Read read a portion. Okay, nice. Anybody else got another plan?

00:37:25--> 00:37:30

No. So either after fudger throughout the day, that's it. That's our plan.

00:37:31--> 00:37:33

After work, what is afterward?

00:37:38--> 00:37:43

Okay, Kim, can we can everybody pay attention with me real quick.

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

It is my humble opinion. And don't

00:37:48--> 00:37:50

don't shoot arrows from your eyes.

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

It is my humble opinion

00:37:54--> 00:37:56

that the only reason

00:37:57--> 00:38:01

why you're stopping at a juice is because nobody has encouraged you to do more.

00:38:06--> 00:38:10

To read a juice a day is what you should do every day of the year.

00:38:14--> 00:38:33

Well, Carmen was soon gonna be in the coma, tough head to head on July, the prophet said, Oh my Lord, my people have taken this course on as something to be abandoned. They've abandoned the pride. You look at with the scholars of Tafseer said

00:38:34--> 00:38:51

the scholars of Tafseer mentioned that abandoning the brine. And there isn't a lot of time to say that anybody who does not read the Quran from cover to cover in 40 days has abandoned the brine.

00:38:54--> 00:38:58

He said and I haven't heard anyone say a number less than that.

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

In other words,

00:39:01--> 00:39:04

most of this most of them say 30 days

00:39:06--> 00:39:12

that if you don't read the Quran from cover to cover, then you have abandoned the prime

00:39:16--> 00:39:18

the reason why I'm saying that

00:39:20--> 00:39:38

I think that we stopped at a juice in Ramadan when that was I'm telling you you can read from the Sahaba to the tablet into the into the scholars are very recent till today. There is no such thing as a Jews in Ramadan.

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

There is no such thing as

00:39:43--> 00:39:47

10 Jews, five Jews for those who are busy.

00:39:49--> 00:39:51

Right, and that's kind of like where it stops.

00:39:53--> 00:40:00

Now, I'm not saying that you're going to be able to do that we have a different lifestyle.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Many things that are going on but how long does it take you to read a juice tight for the brother who said that after further How long does it take to read a juice after

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

20 minutes Hello?

00:40:14--> 00:40:17

Okay, so are we saying now let's double that

00:40:18--> 00:40:32

we get 40 minutes are we saying that we can't dedicate 40 minutes in Ramadan shall hold on and let the owner see the view him for the month of Ramadan in which the Koran was revealed

00:40:34--> 00:40:45

and that was the time that the scholars even scholars of Hadith like man Malik or him on low tide stop teaching in Ramadan is no teacher no dumps.

00:40:46--> 00:41:00

The dumps was the Quran itself, pick up the Quran and they read the Quran. I was talking with shakes it before this for this talk. And we were talking about evander Shafi like a long time.

00:41:02--> 00:41:06

Who used to read the Quran and Ramadan, he used to finish the brine how many times

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

60 times

00:41:12--> 00:41:17

60 times twice a day, he would finish reading the grind.

00:41:18--> 00:41:24

And then we say not as that's legit. That's the stuff they put in the books not it's not stuff they put in the books.

00:41:26--> 00:41:29

It's not just stuff they put in the books chicken below who am I came

00:41:31--> 00:41:38

from the machine from the from his keyboard. And he was from the Committee of major scholars until he died alive.

00:41:39--> 00:41:40

He said that

00:41:42--> 00:41:50

he used to have a group and I'm saying I'm telling you this because this is stuff that just happened like this is you know, within our lifetime.

00:41:52--> 00:42:00

Six, when they were seeking knowledge, it was him in a group of his companions. He said their routine after

00:42:01--> 00:42:06

every July. They pray fudger in the masjid, and they sit.

00:42:07--> 00:42:08

They open up the Muslim.

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

And they read until the khateeb gets on the member.

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

And you know what, what happened? They finished the crime.

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

In the time between fudger and the time of the clock.

00:42:23--> 00:42:37

He said it would take him 12 minutes to read the juice. Now we sit back, I can't read it just in 12 minutes. I'm narrating I'm not telling you about myself. But for those of you who don't even know Arabic,

00:42:39--> 00:42:50

if you've read so little calf, every Friday for the last 10 years, for example, in Arabic, guess what happens? becomes very easy on the tongue very easy on the tongue.

00:42:51--> 00:42:57

This is what they were doing with the entire Quran. Not just with students, okay?

00:42:59--> 00:43:09

They were reading the Quran every week. And this was a methodology that was followed by many of the Sahaba. We're not even talking about that.

00:43:10--> 00:43:14

What I want you to do, I want you to do today

00:43:16--> 00:43:28

is three and a half inches of Brian today. And if you can't do it tonight, because you have other engagement starts tomorrow. Tomorrow's may 6, may 6, tomorrow's may 6.

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

That would be

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

I want you to read a habit just tomorrow

00:43:35--> 00:44:16

and time yourself. So before you start reading a half pages, and preferably, and I noticed this may be against normal advice, I want you to read it in English. Because I want you to know what you're reading. I want you to know what you're reading. Alright, and if you can get a chance to read in Arabic as well and 111 but the Quran is not meant to be read simply for bucha or for to get a reward to get some type of that it's it's supposed to be read for understanding. Alright, so read a habit, choose time yourself. Do the same thing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.

00:44:17--> 00:44:37

Once you find out how long it takes you to read a half of juice. Then I want you to double that. So Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, start reading the juice every day. Time yourself know how long is going to take and then for Ramadan plan to read two Jews a day.

00:44:39--> 00:44:43

Clear. Okay, so half the juice takes you

00:44:44--> 00:44:47

15 minutes at the most Willow atom.

00:44:48--> 00:44:51

Then how long is it going to take you to read to Jews of crime

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

that

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

to Jews of crime. It's going to take you 60 minutes let's take you an hour so what you

00:45:00--> 00:45:14

want to do is push yourself now. And this is what you're going to do when you partner backup is to figure out in a day, when you're going to dedicate that hour, when are you going to dedicate that hour to the crime?

00:45:16--> 00:45:29

Because just because we have to get off of this concept that you know, we're with the angels, you know, when we read the Jews of Orion de Mashallah finished a crime is Ramadan.

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

We, it is a great thing, no really would like it is a good thing. It's a good thing. But what I'm saying is, is that if nobody pushes you, you don't realize that that's actually not such a great feat

00:45:45--> 00:46:16

that you'll push yourself that extra mile. But then you'll see that hey, I can actually read to Jesus granted that I've never even tried it. And then you know what happens? after Ramadan, you'll go back down to one juice a day, and that's fine. But now you'll find yourself with an intimate relation ship with the Koran. And now when you read the Koran, you'll read it differently. It's fun to talk to you in a different way. How many of you have your smart devices?

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

pull pull them out right now I want you to go to to

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

go to write.

00:46:31--> 00:46:44

Steady will cause 1101, which is 11 1249 is the number of sisters as well, as smartphones go to sort of telephone lines.

00:46:45--> 00:46:47

In English, how much you'll be able to read in English.

00:46:51--> 00:46:56

Do you believe stay away from much suspicion? Standing by the dominant one?

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

Which Is

00:47:01--> 00:47:19

it nice Well, okay, so it's number 12. Go to go to go to movie lines. 1249 49 chapter 12 verse 12, a fight who's going to read

00:47:20--> 00:47:23

somebody with a robust voice?

00:47:25--> 00:47:42

good speaker, all you who believe. avoid suspicion. Indeed, some suspicion is a set that do not spy or backbiting each other, would you? Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when he is dead?

00:47:43--> 00:47:51

You will be tested to federal law. A law is Accepting of repentance and mercy. Okay, so lots of kind of data. And this

00:47:53--> 00:48:04

is commanding us to avoid suspicion, to avoid spying to avoid backbiting. And then he lets us know

00:48:05--> 00:48:15

that even if we have fallen into some of these things, that he is to web that he accepts our repentance that He is merciful and forgiving. Funny

00:48:16--> 00:48:20

bilasa pentatonic. If you read that frequently,

00:48:21--> 00:48:43

wouldn't you be more likely to avoid suspicion to avoid backbiting? Because you know, a lot of hands on it is commanded you when you move away from the Quran. And this is not something that should read off. It's very easy to just come and you talk about somebody and backbiting is real easy. You know why? Because we're truth tellers.

00:48:44--> 00:48:50

I say to his face, even if you say it to his face, you're not saying it to his face right now. And you're backbiting

00:48:51--> 00:49:13

and if you say it to his face, that's called what he said. It's it's insulting. It's also not permissible. I mean, we think that because you're saying to somebody's face, that that makes it permissible. No, it doesn't make it permissible. It just changes the sin. That's it. And so, look at this I though and now this is the thing. So this is a very,

00:49:14--> 00:49:36

you know, I don't want to use the word superficial, but it said, it's a nine, deep reading of this particular AI. All right, now let's take a step. Let's go a step further. And let's look at this is what a loss profile is telling us allies would tell the same avoid what in the beginning, a voice suspicion type suspicion is something you do with what your nose, your ears.

00:49:38--> 00:49:40

It's a heart It's from your heart.

00:49:41--> 00:49:51

So allies would tell is telling you to be aware of what you allow to come into your heart. Period. Be aware of what

00:49:52--> 00:49:54

you are feeling. This is important.

00:49:56--> 00:50:00

Okay, in the Bible of Islam, some of them

00:50:00--> 00:50:31

What's your feeling? Some of that suspicion that you had is sinful. Some of the some of those feelings you have a sinful, but that was going to happen, then unless parents Allah says, one entity just Says who? And don't spy, that's fine. It's not something you do what you are, that's something you, you actually do what? You going out, you might even call somebody, and you do drives fine. But last time you saw someone so what's he up to these days?

00:50:32--> 00:50:39

You're not worried about? You're not really worried about his well being you're trying to find out from that person, that third party?

00:50:41--> 00:50:45

Can you get some information that does what verifies your suspicion?

00:50:47--> 00:50:57

And so you're spying now is actually for what it says you your suspicion was Han in the first place?

00:50:58--> 00:51:00

Whether you are correct or

00:51:01--> 00:51:05

incorrect, the suspicion is his harm.

00:51:06--> 00:51:09

But now because you want to be right.

00:51:12--> 00:51:20

You want to be right about that suspicion that Yeah, what do you do? You go look for information. that verifies the suspicion

00:51:23--> 00:51:33

is Hakeem. He's telling us, he's telling us a voice suspicion, and don't spy because your next step after you aren't suspicious is that you're going to do what you're going to spy.

00:51:34--> 00:51:39

Now you found out that everything you've thought about this person was true. So now what you do

00:51:41--> 00:51:46

you go back and tell everybody else and that's called backbiting.

00:51:48--> 00:51:51

Well, I said yes. So while a young 10 babble

00:51:53--> 00:51:59

and don't back fight one another. So let's shut that all down.

00:52:00--> 00:52:02

Because it destroys the community.

00:52:04--> 00:52:06

But if we don't read the Quran,

00:52:07--> 00:52:38
