Tonight, we have began the last 10 nights of Ramadan.
And these last 10 nights are the greatest nights of the year.
The entire 20 days that you have spent fasting
will go to waste if you waste these last 10 nights.
The entire Rama ban is built upon you fasting it saves and then seeking out Laila to Qatar, seeking out Laila to other. And that is why the Prophet alayhi salatu salam used to vet us to make a tea cat for the last 10 nights of Ramadan, because he was looking for Laila to Qatar.
And many of the Muslims followed him in that many of the companions, his wives on the inside and one
and the Tabby who came after them to the point that a man is sorry, for him, Allah who was surprised that some of the people that his time does not make a ticket, he said, because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam didn't leave it, once he made it to Medina, and needed the companions after him. It was a great form of a bad day. And
for those of you who have fallen short, in the first 20 days, Alhamdulillah, we have an opportunity to correct that.
Because what we are concerned with and what Allah azzawajal judges us on is the team on our map, how did you finish the action?
How well did you complete the deed, not the deficiencies that may have happened in the beginning. And I'm sure that like most of us, we start Ramadan, with a lot of fire. You know, we're enthusiastic. But the prophet alayhi salatu salam said, The polyaniline, Shiva, for every action that a person does, there's a point of enthusiasm, when he could lead shift watching.
For every period of enthusiasm, there is a period where you fall back a bit, a slump, if you will. And so for those of you who have faced that, and Ramadan, that's okay. That's okay, as long as you kept doing what you were supposed to do, even if you didn't push yourself extra, but now it's not the time to fall back. Now is the time to push yourself extra and exert yourself. I shall not be alongside and has said that when the last 10 came, the Prophet salallahu idea was son of would exert himself during these last 10. Like he would have no other time of the year period. There's no other time do you get tired because you're fasting, you're tired because you traveled or whatever the
situation is, get up and push yourself. It's e calf. It's not to hang out in the masjid. It's not because you couldn't afford a five star hotel. So you came to hang out at LSU.
And so you see people sprawled out all over the past year. That is not what at cafes.
Yes, you need a portion of the day that you sleep, so that you can worship Allah subhana wa tada during the night, because seeking out later to cut it is not done in the daytime. It's done in the night. And that is why I shall have the Allahu taala and has said that when those last 10 will come in the Prophet sallallaahu Selim said
he would tie up his ease up. And some of the scholars say that that is an indication that he wouldn't approach his wives intimately. And some of them say that it's similar to the English term, roll up your sleeves, shut them down, he would roll up his sleeves, it's time to get busy. The last 10 is not a time to play games. It's not a time to fall back. It's not a time to relax. It's not a time to be lazy. It's not a time to pity yourself. It's a time to push forward with a Papa Lou and he would wake up his family and those last 10 nights were Yeah.
And he would bring life to those nights bring life meaning that he would worship alized the entire night and the last 10 nights of Ramadan which start tonight.
So again, why if you fallen short, if there's been some deficiency, if you said some things that you shouldn't have said during the month of Ramadan, if you've done some things you shouldn't have done, you fall short. That's okay. ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to forgive you for what is past and show allies will tell that you want good. Show him that you want good
By pushing yourself in the last 10 nights of Ramadan and the reason why we push ourselves
so hard and these last 10 is because in them is a night that Allah subhanho wa Taala
told us is better than 1000 months is better than 1000 months. So right now, you've been going around the track. You've been racing in Ramadan. This is that last lap,
the one who wants to win the race does not slow down. During the last lap. He speeds up and he pushes himself looking for what looking for labor to
hire allies of a gentleman
made a surah in the Quran specifically dealing with this night called Surat Al Qaeda. Right? And Qatar means honor. Jani something that has a great status. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala sent jabril la Salim, who is the greatest of the Malacca in Qatar, the greatest of the melodica and status and honor
with the greatest book. And in the book that is the greatest of the books in Qatar, the most honorable book which is the Quran, and he sent him to the Prophet at his Salatu was Salam that was the most honorable Prophet, the prophet with the most other.
This is Laila Takada for Eliza, which Allah says in the Quran in Nair and zelner. who feel a little cutter, we have set it down
in the night of Qatar, and this honorable night this magnificent night set down what
are the lies we'll just sit down and lay let's uncover the core idea.
And that is an indication acquires that the last 10 as you're seeking, later to uncover should be spent with the Quran. No matter what happened, you had a program for yourself. You wanted to read to Jews every day through Jews every day of the grind, and it didn't happen. The last 10 Don't do that to yourself. The last 10 buckled down, spend those nights reading the grind, spend the nights in prayer. If you are here and unless you're never late, or you're going to Mecca you and unless
you pray McGriff, just think about it.
You pray Madrid, in domestic and you sit in the masjid until Russia. It is written for you as though you have been manning the borders that is guarding the borders in defense of Assam out of the box, the prophecy someone says daddy commodity bomb. So you've waited from one slide to another. You pray Madrid
in Japan, if you pray the chef in Japan, what is the reward for praying he sends you man
I have fun. It's like you prayed half the night by then you pray together with
with the event.
Without with him because he's not going to pray with you finish at around 11 o'clock at 1230 or one o'clock. I'm not sure how they're going to do it this year. You start back up with the end. And you're going to be praying till 233 o'clock in the morning.
So you spent a good portion of your night in prayer that time between 11 and 12 3011 o'clock. If you need to drink something, you need to relieve yourself whatever it is that you need to do from your hijacks your needs as a human being take care of that then come back to the masjid and pray.
Then after that you have support and the Prophet is allowed to say if you eat support, not just because you're hungry or because you like the way it looks. But because you are seeking to implement the son of Mohammed salatu salam, then in eating that some more there is Baraka and there's a reward.
And so you spent your entire night basically and devotion to Allah subhanahu wa tada you pray fudger in domestic and it completes that reward for he says so says if you pray the entire night in the message is written for you as if you prayed the entire night and this is the father love Allah subhana wa Tada. Now think about if Elijah Joe blesses you during that night to pray, to read the Quran, to say, what I
learned from the Prophet sallahu wa sallam because when she went to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and she said, O Messenger of Allah.
If we make it too late, that if we know what night lady is.
She didn't say what should we do? How many rockets should we pray? No. She said, what should we say? What should we say? And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told her to say Allahumma in the car who's going to hit Bulava? Fact Ronnie, he did not say By the way, a llama in the carpool Katie are in the carpool wagon. A lot of men who want to hit Bulava fast whiny our love, you are the partner you love pardoning so pardon me, fight for me, which is different than mcguffey is different than saying Allahu mcfeely there's nothing wrong with that.
Obviously make that to make as much as you can. But find frightening when you ask a large hotel to pardon you. What you are asking him for is to totally overlook that sin as if it didn't exist, which is different than a month, which is the cover this in. Okay. So if you are blessed to make that die along with reading the grind, reciting, praying, and likewise, giving in charity, trying to find a way starting from tonight, every night to give in charity.
Because the beads that you do on Laila till Qatar,
allies do a job reward you for them, as if they were done in 1000 months
of one, sorry, not as if they were done 1000 times better than if they were done in 1000 months. And on that note, we should be thankful to ally so a gentleman that we were from amongst the people who pray in this semester for Salatu Lhasa because the Prophet I didn't select it was sent in, said that prayer. And this mention of mine is better than far superior to 1000 prayers in any other message except for unless you do not equal to 1000 prayers, a lot of people say equal to 1000. But no better than 1000 prayers.
And that's a blessing from a loss of data will love.
There are so many people right here in the in the city of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam who are further than a mile or two away from this Masjid, who will not come close to the masjid because of the crowd.
The crowd scares them up.
So then I come across to the message. And the last one I thought of bless you to be here for most of the people who are praying and the message of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and there's so many other people in the world who would give all of what they have to be here and the message of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam. So this is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala that we take a logical joke for having blessed us with play Laila till today.
Allah Subhana data says the rocket so after he says in his in our fee later to cut that we have sent it down in the night of Qatar, this honorable night when my daughter, Melina toccata,
a law that says and what what is it that can convey to you what later to cover this? What is it that he conveyed to you with this night? Is it such a powerful night that Allah subhana wa tada is showing us that there is nothing that can articulate
the honor of this man. And the virtue of this like nothing can articulate that. What my other aka my leaders are, Allah Allah says Laila to Qatar, hi, Ron, men alpha
that the later till cousin is better than 1000 months.
Let's try to put that in material terms.
Let's just say
because here's the reality, if a person is not taking advantage of leaders of color, there is something wrong and we need to pinpoint what the issue is a pinpoint was an issue. So let's look at it in material terms and maybe to help you figure it out.
If your employer said to you,
your boss said to you,
I want you to work these next 10 nights
and on one of the nights,
one of the nights in the next 10 nights.
I am going to give you
is equivalent to 83 years your salary right now.
Okay, so your salary, let's just take an easy number if your salary is $50,000 a year.
Right? And the boss says, I'm going to give you for one night, I want you to do is work one night, from Madrid until
you work that one night. And I will give you 83 years salary for one night. So what's that come out to be more than $4 million?
I just want to know, is there anyone here right now? Anyone? Anybody? That would turn down $4 million just to work one night? Hello, by the way, Danny? No sugar, no money? No difference of opinion? No, none of them. Hello, money. 4 million for one night. anybody's gonna turn that down? I didn't think so. Now,
the only catch is this. The boss says Yes, true. It's one night.
But it's in a span of 10 nights. I'm not going to tell you what it is.
Is there anybody who's not going to work the 10 nights before moon and some change? Uh huh.
The only person that would turn that off or down
is someone that thinks the boss is pulling his leg guys just trying to get me to work. He's got something coming up he wants to be to work from so he doesn't want he doesn't really believe his boss.
maybe he believes him, but he feels like he already has enough.
100 million in the bank. I don't need to go back to work anyway. So he's not going to work for the boss, the point is, or he's sick or something like that. So if somebody turns away,
if somebody does not take advantage of labor to cut it, it is most likely
because they have a lack
of your team. That is that you're not really certain about the promise of a loss penalty.
The promise of Allah azza wa jal is true.
And if we push for it, we push ourselves and later
we'll find out over the last panel data on the de Lyonne problem and whatever 11 that's a lot because it's sitting on a day when wealth and children will not be of any avail set for those who come to the last panel data with a sound hard.
And one of the other things that we look at these last 10
is that some of
the some of it, one
many things take us away from the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada in our lives.
And if we can't find comfort,
and being alone,
and the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada
then we're going to be in for a big surprise after death.
Because you die alone,
you go to the grave alone and your questions alone, you cross the sea lot alone.
And it's time you have to take time during your life to prepare for the inevitable.
The same way that people will go through a semester of study.
Take time to prepare for the exam that they know is coming.
They may do daily revision,
daily preparation, a weekly revision, a weekly preparation.
And then as the exam comes near,
they push themselves even harder to prepare for the inevitable the inevitable be the exam.
And as Muslims rather as mankind man we all know no matter what religion you follow, no matter what ethnic background you come from, or what kind of passport you owe, everybody knows that death is a reality.
But as Muslims, we have lots of data to know a lot more about what
happens after death than any other nation that has preceded us.
And we know the details that have not been described to any previous nation.
And so we know we're going to be questioned in the grave. And then we're going to be questioned by Allah subhana wa Tada. And as such, we need to prepare for that enlightenment, and one of the best preparation so that it can
would you see as a modern day practice of etiquette, where you have 10 brothers get together, three brothers here, seven over there, 20 over there, and they are hanging out and the message decided to cat in the spirit of the Prophet it is SelectUSA Lamb of the Spirit that He legislated. And he kept for us.
was legislated for seclusion
and dedication to the worship of a loss of Hannah Houma to Adam. So it requires long periods of seclusion, not long periods of sleep, not long periods of talking with your friends, not long periods of eating or spending that time outside of domestic, but rather seclusion with the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
And the loss of Canada with his with his servant, as long as his servant is remembering him in mentioning him.
if you can do it, he care for the last 10 nights, that that is the lovely Tiki militia, that is the last panel data's blessing and he gives it to him he will. But even if you can't do it for all 10 Don't let the whole 10 go by and you don't do it this one night and he kept two nights and he kept three nights and he kept going he at least take a night. Everybody, everybody in the lab can afford to do that. Because even for the people who may be going back to the west, the reality is if you get off of work on Saturdays and Sundays, for example, then try to spend Friday night and domestic try to spend Friday to Sunday and domestic to the best of your ability. taste the sweetness of being
comforted, comforted by your seclusion
and push yourself to do that and be aware of the mistakes of it TK
calf is one of the best things that you can do for your heart. And it's one that is moving on to today's I had Ethan shallow Tyler. One of the things that we need to recognize about Islam is that Islam is concerned with our spiritual health.
With our mental well being and with our physical well being.
We should not think and this is one of the huge mistakes that people make in Ramadan.
The total focus on ritual worship, and non focus on refining character. And this has been a theme that we've discussed on multiple occasions, your ritual worship for loss of power which Allah has been prescribed for your refund,
a loss of your data set in the salata. 10 annually fact he will mooncup that Salah Yani if you perform it properly, that it prohibits you, if for bids you It prevents you from absolute obscenities, alpha share was more mooncup alpha
is actually those despicable sense. And mukarram is all evil. And fascia is a part of ilonka. But it's the most despicable sense. Like when the prophets of light it was someone said that one of the verses is for a man to commit adultery with his neighbor's wife, committing adultery is bad, but with your neighbor's wife is even more despicable. Right?
Salah prevents you from doing that. That relationship that you create with the loss of habitat. And don't forget that you also have a relationship with his creation and he's obligated and he's put down guidelines for how we deal with his creation.
So if you come into Ramadan,
and you finish Ramadan, the same person that you came in and something wasn't right, even if you prayed every night and 200 and made it to camp and everything else but you're still not
Do you put your parents, you still don't honor your brother in Islam, you still don't love them but you love for yourself.
You still don't treat your neighbors right and don't prevent them from your harm.
You still don't meet your brothers in Islam was slammed you turn your back something you started treating your wife, right? Or vice versa Your wife is not treating her husband, right?
If that is if Ramadan finishes and this is still the state that you're in, then what exactly did your worship do for you?
The client realize this, because many people think,
that a good Muslim is one who does the exterior acts of Islam.
And Ramadan, maybe fast three days and every month. He makes hedge every opportunity he gets he makes a homerun all the time when
he prays five times a day.
But on top of that, he throws his trash in front of his neighbor's door.
When he sees the Muslims, he frowns he doesn't smile,
turns his back.
He's envious of what his brother possesses Danny, that is he wants what his brother has and he doesn't want his brother to happen.
And so on and so forth. He doesn't treat his wife right. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said hey will contain only me, the best of us the best of you to his family.
He doesn't discipline his children to the end of it. Then what exactly was all of the worship? Even the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam said, Can you just take this as enough of a proof
manlam Jada cola Zoo
while llama la v. While Jehan, Felicia Felisa the left has yet to come.
I think about what do you do when you fast, you're leaving off your food and you're drinking anything else that might break your fast.
But the profit some of it was some upset if, while you're fasting, in this month of Ramadan, you don't leave off false speech
and acting according to it in a journal, which is
to be an discipline, when dealing with other people
that you just ignorant. As we will say,
if you don't leave that off, as long as your gel has no need for you, leaving off your food in your drink. So just think about it one little lie that you tell, and you can erase the word reward of your fasting. Now, it doesn't mean that your fast is invalid, it doesn't mean you have to come back and fast another 30 days or anything like that you have to make your prayer. But realize that these embed that he's ritual forms of worship, that Allah subhana wa tada has prescribed for us to do.
They have mocassin there are objectives behind them. And one of the greatest objectives behind them is the refinement of our character.
That is why it's so important that we look at what we've done. And again, we look at building these habits. This is this has been our theme, building habits so that in Ramadan, you come out after that after Ramadan, you come out a better Muslim, then you went went in. So again, Islam
is concerned with our mental or spiritual well being, which is the which is these rituals that we do,
as well as our mental, emotional, and physical well being. And so the idea we're going to cover today, deal with both your physical well being that's going to be the first ID because the profit I think we're going to talk about the etiquettes of eating in Islam. I don't think that is Sam that anything. I don't think oh, I'm coming. You know, I'm coming to the prophets mention. And he's sitting up there talking about how we should eat Yes, because Islam didn't leave.
Islam didn't leave any stone unturned. It is a complete way of life. It teaches us how we should believe how we should behave, how we should worship, what we put in our bodies as well. And how much of it to put in Islam teaches teaches us all and slave teaches us how to use the bathroom and this is something that the companions were proud of. They were proud of that. The Jews came to Savannah and said to him are the alone China and the prophets.
Everything, even how to use the bathroom as if he was backing up? Yes, he did. Certainly.
He didn't leave any stone unturned we know the teachings of the Prophet it is Salatu was named which teach us how to get closer to Allah,
how to be better, how to be better humans, how to better interact with society as a whole. So the first thing we're going to cover is dealing with the etiquettes of eating out properly.
Adam we are at shamrock a profitable company who has done a marriage
a lot of such a summer long running he was such an upset a human being has not failed at any vessel which is more evil to be filled about his summit attempt at
required so this hadith the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, we fill up vessels all the time, we fill up our bowls, we fill up plates with whom we stack it on high, we fill up glasses and everything else. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that there is no vessel and it's something that takes food and drink
that is more evil to be filled. How do we translate
a human being has not filled any vessel which is born evil Yeah, it is not more evil to be filled that is worse is nothing no vessel worse
or there is no vessel that you can fill that is worse than filling your stomach than filling your stomach. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam instructed us saying that if you must Yani It is enough for person to eat some morsels of food just a bit of food. You primness Salva who need that straighten up his back meaning what that keep him healthy, that keeps him firm and healthy. That's all you really need in life.
To eat, what will keep you healthy, the prophets of light have something to say. So here, if you must a third for your food, a third for drink. And a third for air?
Do you have air in your stomach?
Where's your air
and your lungs? True.
Now what happens if you eat too much?
You feel like you can't breathe, because you eat so much. So this is what the profit is select from cinammon. Same here, you leave the space for your air so that you can breathe regularly. A portion for your food a portion for your drink. And that's enough, there is a a great treaties that was written by one of the students are taking the beds for him on Allahu taala.
And it's not long. And we're going to read about a page, a page and a half of it. Because it feels with the etiquettes of eating and Ramadan is fine. But like most of the diseases that people are facing today
are not because of the air that they're breathing.
But it's because of what they are putting themselves or choosing to put in their bodies.
And so it's very important that we recognize that and that we recognize that Islam has come to remedy this situation as well. And Ramadan is one of the best times to do that. Because you can alter your eating pattern. So we're going to just read a shout out to Adam
this advice and we're going to
take it step by step. Hopefully you will take this advice to heart and implement it in your life and change what needs to be changed your eating patterns inshallah Tada, now.
Thank you adornments every month.
Right? You're not be obsessive. So lots of Real Dial is telling you that this is that you can wear whatever you like to the message. adorn yourself when going to the message don't wear your pajamas to the messenger. Right? Well, kulu was fabu and eat and drink while that's a secret. But don't go overboard. Don't go overboard man. He does not like those who commit excess. Now, there are a number of exits related to the fact that one of the person to be
eating and drinking during the night of the fast arrives we see that some people indeed and most people turn them off of Ramadan into an annual season for exuberant
filled with copious amounts of exotic foods. Yes. So what a lot of people do in Ramadan and in fact,
for those of you who live here in Saudi or spend some time here, you'll see it or most of the Arab world as well. You'll find that the supermarket's are
Follow people and Ramadan more so than any time of the year, it is amazing. The time of the year when you're supposed to cut back on what you eat is the time when people are buying the most foods.
And so the author here is explaining to us that this is inappropriate, that this is not from the etiquettes of a fasting person, you should be
slowing it down, not looking at, and this is the reality. Some people in Ramadan in the nine hours of the night that we have or whatever it is, they eat more than they do, and the rest of the year, and the entire day and entire 24 hours. Their caloric intake in Ramadan is more than it is on a daily basis than it is in any other time of the year. So they come on they eat
way more than they did. When Ramadan started, they gained 10 pounds in Ramadan.
they go out about exhibiting every possible manner of excess, you see them going out to the markets to spend theory on voluntary delights that they would almost never purchase at any other time of the year. And that's the other thing. Ramadan, you find people eating things that they would never eat any other time of the year, not because it's better for Ramadan. No, but just because it's become a habit or custom or something like that. Some of it might even be sugary drinks and things that are actually contrary to the effects that take away from your ability to be comfortable throughout your past. Now, the reason for this behavior is that a lot of money is wasted. And a lot of people fall
ill on account of overheating. Even worse, people find themselves too sluggish and tired after forcing themselves to engage in worship. And this is what happens even in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Because Ramadan is almost over we need to get the meals in that we didn't get the first 20 days, we need to get to the iftop. And that's that's another day is why
a lot of people measure their social success in Ramadan based on how many stars they've had or how many stars they've been to and been invited to. In the last 10 nights of Ramadan, you need to busy yourself with the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. If you go to a iftop, it should be an iftaar where the person is on the same wavelength as you we break our fast we pray, and then we're done. Now we break our fast and then we pray. And then we sit in and we kick it and we talk and we start time for that. So last night will lie every second counts. It is not time for that. Now if you need to do if you're doing something productive, so be it. Nobody's telling you in the last 10 nights of
Ramadan, you can't do business you need to do business to your business. But what we're talking about is strictly wasting time, which happens with over socialization, which is the point of it. So that you cut down on that socialization. These last two nights of Ramadan are valuable. Don't waste them with vain talk now. We should also think about the valuable time that gets wasted shopping in the market and preparing all that fancy food. And this is something that husbands should be fair last panel job. You have your wife's wasting her time and the last 10 nights of Ramadan, any so that she can make, you know pretty coronary things.
Seek allies with Adele's reward and giving her the time to worship Allah subhana wa tada as well. Don't don't don't make her preoccupied with food. Well, I think it's, it's counterintuitive. It's a paradox that somebody would use the last 10 nights of Ramadan, busying themselves with food, which is the opposite of fasting, right? So the point is, the point is that the author is making here is that a lot of people waste their time, with things that don't come back with any benefit during Ramadan, much of which
ends up in the trash bin. And that's another point. And this in Ramadan, and we should be more sensitive to wasting food, because we should value food even more. And that's the reality. The reality is that by leaving off food during the daytime, we actually do appreciate it more at nighttime, it's probably why people will read because they're there that is their way of showing their appreciation for the food. But the reality is, is that a lot of people wind up throwing away a lot of food. And this is something that we should be very careful not to do and Ramadan throughout the year.
In preparation for Ramadan that
are contrary to a lot of orders and contradicts the truth the true spirit of Ramadan. They are also unhealthy and on economical if these people would only conduct themselves appropriately, in accordance with the man
Start by and eat the foods that they usually pay for spending extra money and charity as they are supposed to do and all right, because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and for those of you who have fallen short and giving charity in the first 20 days, don't lose the opportunity in the last 10 nights. The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam.
Khanna Edgewater ness, he was the most generous of the people. Even my bachelor, the yellow triangle described him as being more generous than a gentle breeze that would come through that breeze that comes through doesn't just affect one person, or two people a breeze that comes through, hits everybody, it hits everybody, the profit idea selection was Sam's generosity reached the Muslims. It was a, it was a generosity that wasn't specific to one or two people. And so we should seek to be to emulate our messenger, please select mussalam and be generous in this month of Ramadan, and that which remains now. They could be the core, the needy and the orphan they could give to those who
find themselves in restricted means a chance to break their backs on something nice as well. Yes. So you know, there's some people Ramadan comes around, and they're on hard times, and you've got neighbors who are buying extravagant foods and having extravagant spreads. And they just cut back a little bit. They could give the rest of that money to the poor and the needy and the orphans and so that other people could add something nice to break their fast food as well. Now, we should also consider the consequences of indulging all of our appetites, believes only the misery of sickness and this is the end this is the reality. When you overeat,
though you may feel good while you're eating it. What happens 10 minutes later, you still feel good?
No, you don't. You're looking for a Pepsi or something else to drink to try to help you digest. You're looking for a way to relieve yourself you're looking for a way it doesn't bring it some handle on
it's something that doesn't leave you with anything but regret honestly.
A doctor he opposes upon his patient, a specific dietary regimen to allow the body to rest to cleanse and reinvigorate itself and restore its inner balance is a regimen for health
is one of the obvious wisdom
yes in though that is not the objective of Ramadan the objective of Ramadan has nothing to do with you becoming healthier. That's not the objective. That's not why Allah subhana wa tada prescribed Ramadan, he said in the brine that it has been prescribed so that we attain teclado which is your spiritual and your emotional health. But one of the benefits of Ramadan that we get from Ramadan is that we are healthier be in the lab, because your body does have a chance to reset, it has a chance to cleanse itself now.
That is one of the obvious wisdoms around fasting, how can we turn this upon its head
into an occasion for eating more and more right so now instead of
instead of taking in less during Ramadan, now we take in more Yeah,
eat and drink but be not accepted. He does not like those who commit access. Some scholars have commented on this verse say, Allah has gathered together all of medicine in this service. The
triangle would love to add it said that
the apostle of learning everything that relates to medicine in general, goes back to this verse, and drink and do not be excessive. And that's the reality. If there are any medical doctors, they here, they will testify to the fact that much of what we see in terms of disease that people face is because of their excessive eating and drinking and what they put into it but it's not for profit from
the child of Adam hills, doughnuts are worse than is sufficient for the child of Adam or a few more souls to keep his back straight. If he must eat more than a third should be for a third and a third left for air.
For you, this is your prophet alayhi salatu salam Yeah, he for Islam, brother in Islam, the same way that you take the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam when he said prayers. You see me pray. And so you want to learn how to prophets ally with Southern prayer. He faced a template. He raised his hands when saying Allahu Akbar, where did he
have his hands. How were his fingers placed with a squeeze together? Were they apart were they slightly like this? Were they at a level with his ears or his shoulders. At the same way you want to learn all of this? Here is your messenger, Eileen Salatu was Salam telling you, this is the way to eat. And this is revelation from the Creator, the one who created you knows how you're supposed to eat. He revealed that to the messenger Muhammad, Allah Salatu. Salam, and our messenger, we relayed that to us. And we should take this advice to heart A lot of times we just, you know, again, if it's not something strictly ritual, it's not the cat's tail call is 2.5%. And we know but when it comes
to something that is outside of those ritual aspects, aspects of worship,
we ignore a lot of what the prophet sallallahu wasallam said, and we shouldn't do that. I love for the prophet Isaiah salatu salam in our belief that he was indeed a messenger from the creator should encourage us to do what he's telling us to do here and that no sensible person can be heedless of the negative consequences that overindulgence in food and drink has more of our lives and worldly lives. These consequences go above and beyond what we have already mentioned. overeating, don't
fight over eating really make you don't.
Does it really make you dumb?
If somebody eats too much, so you got any he's stupid.
His brain becomes slower. Well, what happens is, what happens is because your body is busy trying to deal with the food and you become lazier, as a result, you're not as sharp as that. You're not as sharp. If you overeat, and you over drink, then what happens? You do get lazy, and you're not able to concentrate the same way. And that is the reality. And that is why some of the sellers used to say couldn't understand no other tolerability in the BCM. We used to seek assistance and seeking knowledge by fasting. And they were able to concentrate more when they were fasting, which is contrary to what a lot of people believe. But yes,
it hardens our hearts, our passions and desires, giving Satan a chance to take over even taymiyah
lead singer runs in a son of Allah in the way that mud circulate. So Satan, right, it's like runs to your body, like like blood runs through your veins. All right. And you have to restrict that. And fasting is one of the ways to
to curb those lowly desires that you have and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Chabad yeah Mashallah. Chevette many stuff. I mean, come on, forget his own words.
Right, whoever from amongst you has the ability to let him get married.
A young man. And if he doesn't, if he can't get married, perhaps he doesn't have any financial means. For example, He said that let him fast. Let him fast. Why? Because it is a lot Boolean buzzer will absolutely Danny, it is more likely that you will keep your gaze down and you won't be looking at things that are hard for you to look at. And it's better a better protection for your private parts. Why? Because you're not struggling. You're you're not allowing the shape time to run through you the way that you want. When you feel yourself now, there is no doubt that blood is drawn on what we eat and drink. Therefore, when we eat and drink we brought in the avenues are safe. This is why
amendment said constrict is avenues with hunger. What Satan's have entered, the heart is inspired to do the good deeds that open the doors paradigm. It finds it easy to abandon the sentence and open the doors of hell. And if we don't recognize that and Ramadan will lie in Ramadan, don't we see that it is much easier to be obedient to Allah subhanaw taala than it is at any other time of the year. I mean, this is something that we don't need anyone to come tell us we've experienced it for ourselves. We'll stop there and shallow chowder for the sake of time, and if there are any questions as it relates to Ramadan, the last 10 nights at Caf Laila total Qatar
or anything like that. I'll take the questions now in the live chat. Yes.
So there is a great misconception amongst many of the people as it relates to lay the two together. And that is, the latest of Qatar is the 27th night of Ramadan,
the night that follows the 26th day.
And the truth of the matter is that it could be the 27th night, and it could be any other of the last 10 nights, not necessarily just the at nights either. It can even be on the evening nights.
And there are many proofs for that. I don't know if we have time to go into any of them. But the point is, the point is right, is to recognize that you should be striving the entire last 10 nights, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, and if you don't have the ability to do the last 10
furla you will abandon
them Don't let one of you be cheated out of the last week, for example, or be overcome in the last week. So you want to push yourself that much harder in the last seven as well. So no, there is nothing authentic from the Quran or from the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that would indicate that the Laila to Qatar is specifically on the 27th even though that was the opinion of some of the early scholars of Islam, and there are over 46 opinions that when hedgerow IMO loads and mentions 46 opinions as to when lever to cut it is in federal ban, even though it can only be in 10 nights.
Any other questions?
Is it What now?
I'm not sure.
I understand the question. I'm not sure a lot
of this ad
And these are the
those are the layers of tagging.
So what's your question? Is it true? Is it true or it can be any of the last 10 nights? And that's because since since you answered the profit so as the sales and best sale Buhari, he said that you should seek out the last 10 when nine are remaining, when seven are remaining one five or remaining when three are remaining when one is remaining?
But if if
Ramadan goes 30 nights, 30 days and 39 nights remaining is the 22nd night.
seven nights remaining is the 24th nights.
Five Nights remaining is the 26th.
it's sometimes according to what Knights remain in some time, according to what Knights have proceeded. And therefore you strive in the last 10 nights.
And the odd Knights are more likely to be the latest. Laila to Qatar is more likely, more likely to be on the on the ad nights, but not necessarily. That's one thing. The other thing is who's to say that we didn't calculate the month long so that the nights that we think are odd are actually even and vice versa.
Yes, to add Knights meaning 21st 23rd 25th 2729
all 10 not just the five
Okay, so from what I understand the question, it is, for the sake of everybody here and what the question is, is that is become accustomed in certain lands, that once Ramadan comes, people begin to ask for food, even though the rest of the year nobody's asking for food is that is that the question? So
from what I understand from the question, in other words that people are asking for more for more food for more money during Ramadan and these type of things like that. And is that something that that's okay.
In general, there are food drives that happen, especially in poorer nations. That happened in Ramadan, because people are looking for the reward of feeding a fasting person. We know that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said that whoever feeds a fasting person, meaning that when they break their fast, they feed them with that which will satisfy their hunger, and that which will serve as a meal for them, that they get the reward of the fasting person without anything being decreased from the reward of that fasting person. So they, they both get that reward. And so people tend to during the month of Ramadan, they tend to do these type of food drives in order to gain that
reward, whereas throughout the remainder of the year, they may not be as diligent and providing the people with food. However, that being said, as Muslims, and we should be concerned with the plight of Muslims throughout the world, and if, in fact, Muslims are going hungry, and certain lands that we should do our best to divert some of our resources to those lands, so that the people can at least eat because we have we do have, as an ally, we have enough to take care of ourselves, we really do without outside support. But it is a matter of how the the wealth is distributed. And for people to recognize that there are people throughout the world who may need the extra 10 cents a
day, 25 cents a day, literally, that could feed them where they're from, and it doesn't do any harm to you where you are below.
Can you do what now?
Five, so the brothers asking about the virtues of doing a T cap and invest in another league. And the reality is that there is no specific virtue mentioned in by the prophet sallallahu it was something for at cap. What I mean by that is the same way. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that
the prayer between my my house and my member
of the province I sent him said the area between my house and my member is a robot.
Right there, Boulder schriever. It is a garden from the gardens of Paradise. The profit is lots of cinema, however, did not mention any specific reward for prayer and the role. So if you go pray in the road, it doesn't mean that you're going to get 2000 times the prayer. For example, there's nothing that mentions that. Likewise, it's caf in the mentioned dubawi. There's no specific virtue that has been mentioned for that. However, if you do make a tea cat, and I mentioned number one, you're going to get at least nine days, because we may have nine or 10 days away at least nine days, where you're praying five times a day of prayer with the man from the beginning. And from the from
the time he starts to feel like
you're going to get that reward, which is 1000 times more than 1000 times the prayer for each prayer that you pray and the prophets message. Likewise, the Torah when Pm 11 any other prayers
Did you pray that this message is also multiplied. It's not just the bottom. It's not just an obligatory prayer, Salah tune fee message, he had a prayer and this message of mine said, not the prayer and not the *wit. So there is the reward for praying and the message of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And then sitting in the masjid from one slot to the next slot, waiting for the prayer you are being it is written as if you are in prayer, reciting the Quran, which you should be doing a lot of going into camp. And if you can finish the Koran once every three days, for example, you should push yourself to do that to do $10 a day. For example, push yourself to do that and put
every single letter that you recite. For every house, there is a good reward and the good rewards are multiplied 10 times over to 700 times. So there's a great reward and making handicapping dimension of the profit on a selected assignment. Even better terms, there be something specific that I'm not aware of anything specific, any other property is selected. that talks about the reward for at cap. In other words, there is no hiding. There is no hiding
where the problem is it some say if you for example, make a T cat for 10 days and then you will have a house in paradise or something like that is not happy. This is
something that I may touch on at a later point but I'm going to mention analysis you bought a ticket
at Cafe Yes, wine is a time of seclusion.
It is unfortunate that there are people who are on their phones as we speak, taking selfies, Snapchat and so on. I'm getting ready for a tea cat who cares belie like who cares.
If you're not doing it for lunch pail dial, it doesn't count anyway. It does not count it is against you and not for you to see people Will he ever be led walking around the cabin making to walk
totally inconsiderate of everybody else that's around them arm stuck out like this. So they've taken up three spots. And they want to make sure that angle is correct. And they are filming themselves as they are making to walk. But lie This is a disease and one. This is a disease. Your Worship is supposed to be for last panel Tyler alone.
Has social media invaded your life, to the point that you can't even worship a law without documenting it. Do you not believe that the angels have written it down and that you will see it on your piano will lie if you never see it again in this life.
That it is being recorded for you. Some people, unfortunately, have the disease of cataloging everything that they do so that they can live in the past.
And they become an observer of their own lives.
They don't live in the moment. It's only real if they're recording it. And they've recorded themselves doing it and then they post it so that everybody else can comment on it. And as if they need validation from someone for your worship of Allah subhanaw taala to tell you, if you want to go ahead you want to take a picture of everything you've eaten for the day and everything you just bought and everything you went in the new hotel that you went to the beach that you want and all of that you want to do all that and you want to share that with
all of the army
that is your business even though that's unwise, imprudent, and it's inappropriate honestly for Muslims to live their lives like that. If you want to do that, that ship business until you get to the worship of Allah subhana wa tada
that's what Allah and Allah azza wa jal does not accept any partners. So if you're doing it, partly because you want the reward from Allah, and partly because you want people that comment, then will lie is all for the people who will comment allies will just says that the habido could see an ultimate shooter care and issue.
And the one who is least in need of a partner, meaning allies, which means no partner. Some people, they need partners, you can't get the business done. He's mad savvy. He's, you know, he's the business savvy guy. He's the creative, so they need partners, allies, no need of a partner.
Whoever does an action, and a shocker fee, my lady and he associates with me other than me that action Sora two should go. I've left him in a ship. You and your party can have it all.
So is that what you want from your own road do you want from your own road that all of your previous sins are going to be forgiven? Or do you want people to comment on your page and say my shot alive was beautiful in Mecca it's always beautiful Mecca hamdulillah you can look at any other video.
You don't have to you don't have to video yourself for film yourself.
You've also had a lot this is a disease, a lot of the social media. And we're not saying that social media is haram, some people use it to call to a loss of habitat and it's a beautiful thing.
But the point that it starts invading your private life
husband, who would post something about his wife on social media or vice versa, well, yeah, to be left, nothing is left to privacy.
Nothing is left to the point that not only the good things you put on social media, but you start exposing your sins on social media, and the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said kulu
in the Mujahideen, all of my Ummah will be pardoned and forgiven, except for those who expose themselves. You are allies with Joe Jani
has granted you sit in and covered your sin, and you filled it, and took pictures of it and put it on social media.
But he has a funny, this is a call to be more mature, more responsible with your use of social media. And while you're making it to Catherine O'Meara, praying in the last night, put the social media to the side, Let it go, let it go. It's okay. It's okay.
People can share you and like you later. Right now it's time to focus on the worship of Allah subhana wa Thailand, the worship of him alone. And the minute that you put someone else in that
the minute that you are looking for some type of praise, or even just to be recognized, you just want someone I mean that not even that they praise you. We just want them to recognize that you are making homework that you are praying to hug you or something like that, then it becomes but other than the last panel data would love them to stand.
But no, it's not the DNA is the messenger of the Prophet, it is allowed to be sent as the prophets in light of his own sister logic, the message he had failed on me. So light and female power, that prayer and this message of mine is better than 1000 prayers than any other message except for the message. So it's not all of Medina, it is the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Whereas the 100,000 you saw outside is
not just a message of heaven, all
in terms of the other question, which is making 40 prayers and the message of the prophet Isaiah select with Sudan, there's a week Heidi,
a week had is not authentic is not sound, that the that says that the one phrase and the 40 prayers and especially of mine without listening to the command, then he will be free of hypocrisy or he will be free from Delphi or something like that. But it is not authentic. The authentic hadith in that regard, is the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam where he said that whoever prays 40 days in Japan, not missing to military for 40 days not 40 prayers and as much as 40 days in Japan, not missing tetrapyrrole teletraan
then cookie but level Bora attend, there will be two
freedoms that are written for him. Freedom from the Hellfire and freedom from hypocrisy. That's a bad translation, but you get the point. He will be free of hypocrisy. And it will be written that this person is not a hypocrite and will not be one that he would be protected from hypocrisy and protected from the Hellfire and that's anywhere on the dunya
yes, 40 days continuous
not missing tech middle to the heart. And that requires some effort and requires some planning. And Toby from Alaska.
Lana is the if you if you want if a person wanted to just go to Mecca, they came from Pakistan or England or wherever they came from. And he wanted to just go to Mecca and make a home run and go back and never come to Medina they are almost valid. And it's this. The Dina has nothing to do with them.
It's not from the completion of Roman or anything like
It's what it's good to visit with the name of the Prophet it is selected. But it's not it's nothing to do with the rights of man.
In general, in general,
photography is something that this guy was had seemed to have a bigger difference of opinion in the past on than they do now. And most of them seem to not look at photography, as being something that is competing for the last panel died in his creation, but it is capturing that it's capturing the creation of velocity panel data, and allows you to dial in those bursts.
yes, yes, you can perform on the last 10 days around. And the last 10 nights anytime you want, is something that you can perform any time of the year.
There's no restriction on.
It's a good question. I'm glad that you asked him. The question is, is it better to attend a lecture? And he wants the last two nights of Ramadan starting last Sunday? Is it better to attend a lecture? Or is it better to, you know, read the Quran and busying yourself.
And the reality is, is that every person is better is according to him. So, if we look at it in general, we look at it in general, right?
We would say that the best thing that you can do in Ramadan, and the last 10 nights and read the Koran and make your eyes on so perhaps a person has gotten to the point where their heart is not in it, at that at that particular stage. So they want to listen to a lecture in order to reinvigorate themselves to perhaps learn something new about their religion, and then it goes to go back and redo grind. And so if that's the case, each person knows what is better for him at that particular time. And he follows his heart where your heart is, that is what is going to be the best form of events when we talked about Johnny unrestricted without looking at you know, the person himself then
reading the Quran is better. But again, this is like saying, What is better for me to do read the Koran or say to kind of appeal Allah. We will say reading the Quran is better. But if you're asked to do it we also do saints to panel appeal as better in that particular that particular instance or situation now.
We'll hand over to Adam Adam we're gonna pick up tomorrow inshallah Friday. We'll pick up after also same time so last kind of alone on the channel.
