Narrated Ibn Abbas for the Allahu anhu man, an old man is permitted to break his fast and Ramadan and feed a poor for everyday and no atonement is required of him reported by a data company and unpack him who also authenticated it.
Similar hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah vida de wasafi woman WA, this duration from an ambassador the Allahu anhu Allah wa, as been hadrosaurid reported by Dada cottony and it is Sahih. And to be honest with you, there is another narration and Sahil Bahati. And this is kind of
strange, why would he refer to the narration and the data Putney and he wouldn't use the narration so he'll Buhari and said Buhari, that had been ambassador of the alaba unmodeled commented on that verse where Allah subhanaw taala said, widen the DNA up Punahou feed the atom bomb on the skin. For those who can offer fasting.
They should feed a poor or feed a poor person for you. Provide meal for or food for a poor person. It'd be best said it's a permission for the older man. For the old man
to break their fast to break their fast and the feed for each day. They break their fast Palo Alto and Coolio. miskeen maybe he choose to give some people say the strange Why would he not use the Buhari one because maybe this was just a comment on the
the verse it's not like a whole it's not for it. Like the way it is in data botany or human law. But I think it's worth it. It's worth mention that the narration also exists in the body
by an ambassador the allow unsaid
permission were given. Who give that permission. It's Allah subhana wa Tada. Where do you get that from? He got it from the verse that I decided in sort of Baccarat 184, where Allah Subhana Allah said, well, Allah DNA will be a Punahou fideism bamu scheme. If you remember I told you before that that legislation for the legislation for fasting started with making fasting as an
Option, if you choose to fast, good, if you choose not to fast, and you're capable of fast, and you choose not the vast failure to escape, that you will basically feed a meal per day. And you do need to fast was optional. It'd be an ambassador of the allow and who are law. He believes that this verse was not completely abrogated,
was not completely abrogated the ruling change a lot of it, what's the change happen? He said
that rule remained, the rule remained, which is the option but this option is for for novice, is for the pregnant woman, the breastfeeding woman, for the older person, the person who cannot sick person who's very old, very sick, he will not be able to, to cure or be cured from his illness. So that person is required to give a meal per day.
He said the verse didn't completely abrogated actually the ruling remained for those people. But there is another verse came to specify another ruling for the average Muslim was capable of making fasting that they must Mencia he didn't come Shahada for the Assam if you witness the month you must fast
so that's how we've been Ambassador the alarm understood that concept.
we say the person who became so old
if this illness and this old age the person lost with it their ability their sanity, their mental cabover capacity is not there anymore. So they can basically
see it cannot understand they cannot comprehend if the person became like Majnoon in this case, we say that there is no need for that person to feed or to do anything.
You want to turn the light dark Okay.
Now the light is basically the one the not the yellow one bright that one yes.
Okay, just take a second to think
so that if the person is old to the extent that they lost their sanity became like Majnoon someone have a dementia you know or Ulzheimer the tea cannot any more focus or understand anything or mentally not capable of making any sound decision or you know taking care of himself understand what's around him or her this person you don't need to feed meal per day for them because one of the condition of tech leaf that the became McCullough sanity, but
they What if no, he's still in his a person who's sane, but it's too weak too fast. Too old, too sick too fast. Someone will be in this medication for the rest of his life. He cannot
would be fair in the clock to say
some people would very bad diabetes levels they cannot fast they have to eat and we don't know any cure for this kind of sickness.
Yeah, like their diabetes is not controlled at all. They have to okay. They have to eat. Also maybe heart disease, blood pressure, those people have to take medication all the overtime, the heart disease. So some of these sickness were required from the person to be a medication during the daytime cannot delight. So people like this or old he became like 70 or 80 years old. He can it's very hard for him to fast. It just very tiring for him to fast. People like this. What's the ruling and regard to them?
Abu hanifa at mmf met at mmm Shafi Rahim Allah in the new madhhab have a sharpie, the latest to clean up Chevy said the follow of an Ibis, federal they said what he break the fast a new feed for each day, a meal,
a full meal to basically make up that day. And they said NSM mnemonic when he became old, he didn't fast and he used to feed per day, a meal per day.
And Emma Malik Rahim Allah and one narration from remember Shafi in the old method? They said no the
did not take a bus fare to
the wind. And they took a principal in Sharia.
That principle in theory is law, you can leave a law when a law was Aha. They said, a law will only make you do what you are capable of. But if you don't have the capacity to do something, the sharing, I will never make it required for you. So the said the old person, or the person who's sick, a sickness that there is no cure for it. They basically do nothing. They break their fast, and there is nothing to make, there is no penalty, there is no feeding, there is nothing like that. They didn't take what you've been asked said, first of all, it's not headed from the profits of Salah. And they found that the principle in the Koran and the principle of Sharia is more stronger than the
opinion of urban ambass about the allowance and what are the law.
But for me, the majority's opinion like the henneberry and the Hanafi and
latest opinion among the Shafi area, that it is something you should feed a meal per day to a poor person is a stronger Why? Because even a boss said that an NSL they allow and said that, and they've been ambassadors, the translator of the Koran, he understand this principle. And we don't we didn't find anyone opposed that opinion among the companions. You know, winmagic opinion will be very strong. If we found the Sahaba among them dispute, I would say you know what there is option, but we found Ennis and had been busted that while I am loving minister habit in Cardiff and we don't know any companion objected to them.
So the principle says
the principles should lead us decide if a companion make a statement or multiple components make a statement, and we know that no one opposed them. Their opinion must be heard you must be an authority in this case.
Another issue related to sickness What about the pregnant and the breastfeeding woman
in America a lot in regard to the pregnant and the breastfeeding woman divided into three groups. First group said she make up these days later on. She break her fast but she make up the days later on.
And breaking up the fast is optional.
The second group
and the one who said she makes up the days only Abu hanifa Rahim mahoba
Malik and among the tabs in Zuccotti wa will hustle and bustle hmm in a tabula
and it's the famous of him and also it is one opinion among that
another opinion said she needs to she needs to only feed
nothing else. So pregnant woman or breastfeeding woman didn't fast all what you need to do to give a meal per day. And among the people who said this had been a bass have been tomorrow the allow and and the old opinion among the chef. Yeah.
So and Gemma, clean and other group of scholars as well, and
an aeration among some of the hanabi law. So they said she only needs to
per day meal per day. And she doesn't need anything else. Can you get my paper was
the second the third opinion, which is the mother of all sunrace chakalaka narration from can you get this away from me?
Just make it to you guys.
The fan just listen face this word, the brothers over.
And this opinion is very interesting. They said
if she breaks her fast, the pregnant woman and the breastfeeding woman if she breaks her fast because she was worried about herself, she's dehydrated. She's so sick. In this case, she only make up the day. Why? Because she looked like a sick person. She takes the rules of personal sec.
But if she broke her fast, because she wasn't she was worried about her baby
Baby will not be nutritious enough in her stomach in her womb or she will not have milk for him. She will dry up
the half attalla Janina she makeup the day and she feed.
Why they said she feed the said because Allah said in the Quran Allah Allah Allah Deena up Punahou, fidgety atomic bomb skin, because the lesson in the Quran, those who have that capacity or the ability to fast and they choose not they should give a meal.
And they said that verse never been abrogated. 100% So they said, to do the to, and that's the position of the hanabi de unfetter of Shama. chefman basil Rahim Allah and many of the scholars
and Amir themin as well and I really not very excited about this opinion even though most of my teachers took it the reason because for me I don't see any similarity in a bat that what Allah subhana wa tada double your penalty kinda you make up the day and you feed its usual either or that this or that but if you look at the other trends in Sharia it never was both of them you have to do it's either you do it or you pay for as one of the two but to do two of them this is kind of not common I couldn't think now of anything similar to that so doesn't go with the trends or the the norm or the the common practice in the Sharia. That's why I really believe that the opinion that the
pregnant and the breastfeeding woman she only can feed is the easiest and the closest one to the opinion of the Sahaba and the more practical one Why? Because I have seen many sisters. She became pregnant.
So that's one Rama bunchy Miss breastfeeding for two Ramadan so that's three Ramadan
how many days now?
Nine Mashallah. Our people are very good. After she finished the two years, he should have done he basically she engaged with with another kid. So that's another you know, cycle. So that's right there. Six trauma bonds. That's how many days is this? These are a lot, nine 180 days
180 days that's like, you know, and some woman I seen three years and four years
so this case, I think it's more more practical to say just feed. Well I have one pregnancy and she has the ability to make it up desert a lot here.
But I don't think especially if it's became hot. In cases like this when you have multiple Ramadan many days and became halogen people. I think there is no harm to choose the other opinion among the other man and Misha chef Michel Barnier Rahim Allah Allah, who used to give federal that feeding will be sufficient
without making up the days, how much you give, there is no proof how much you feed, all what we know that they used to give them a meal. And as he used to bring them bring 30 people to his house and feed them at once. Hello, and he said that
but you have to be poor, not to make foreign domestic.
We are poor to Allah but then any nonsense, una vaca Allah but you have to find someone who is considered person poor
to give them one meal. And this is has to be not the cheapest meal that the most important meal of the day. So for example, in American culture, what is the main meal we have? Dinner? Is not lunch, so you don't count lunch? Oh, you know what? I'm going to give him a sandwich. Lunch usually very light like you know, six $7 lunch, dollar lunch, dinner. It's like about what $20 or $15 the dinner so we go with the dinner.
In Arab culture, the main meal in our culture is lunch is not dinner or breakfast. What about like in Pakistan, what's the main meal? lunch or dinner? Lunch as well lunch
all of them may be
equally important. Okay.
So you basically choose but can I give money?
Can I give money to the poor person instead of a meal?
Chef Islam Rahim Allah tada and many other set
they are very interesting. I don't know if you guys have the interest to dig deep or not. They said something I want you to contemplate on it.
shackle Islam, Rahim Allah said, and it'll pay him and others, they said the penalties in Islam, the penalties in Islam and feeding
it was legislated for the benefit of the poor, Yanni the original originally it was initiated just to help the poor, can somebody give me example.
Any, like something we are required to give, only because it's for the poor benefit of the poor. The cattle filter, make them rich that day make them sufficient that day. So it was legislated not because the mainly is not about you, it's about the poor person, okay?
Like the over here, or come to the old heads or holds like, so there's a capital letter, it is meant for the poor. That's why she kind of slump said, it's allowed for you, you you look what is the best interest for the poor person to receive food or to receive it.
Money, because the whole issue is, is his best interest is to serve.
But if the legislation is not about the poor, it's about you. It's about purification. It's about ritual, you should stick to that tax.
So the poor Bernie is not about the poor, nothing in the hide, it said that you have to give it to the poor or to feed the poor or anything like that. The over here is about you eat from it, you give gift from it, you give donation from it, but the whole entire legislation is about the ritual itself, the necessity that you slaughter for the sake of Allah, you spell the blood of the of the animal for the sake of Allah, Allah presenting what happened to him. So they said, because it's a ritual you cannot change. So you cannot say, let me do this and instead of giving the poor person she let me give him $400
or $200. He can't
The question will be he put that aside. Then he now became a debate. In a case like this. Is this meant this legislation meant
or legislated originally because a Sherry I was looking after the best interests of the poor, or it is meant as just a form of punishment for the person.
And it's form of ritual for the person. You might look at it this way I knew that's why today debated those who see it more of the whole installation is about the poor. He will tell you you can give money or you can give food. Those who said no it's a ritual he will tell you have to keep it in the form of food.
And that even you say it's not convenient for me. But yes, this inconvenience meant for you not to do that again or not.
I do believe that this is about the poor model than anything else. So you can give money or you can give food that's both fun. You can give it to one person for 30 days. 30 meals, you can give it to multiple people.
You can sponsor the ns did that of their life. Yeah once but it has to be a full meal. Like if you The more you perfect the meal. I know one of my teachers will lie It's amazing. I saw him once giving them the feeding of his mother.
I was surprised that was one of my teacher ones will light he choose first. The best meals like the best meat and we were going and he won't purchase meat he basically take it and give it to the poor and overseas. So he choose a good restaurant like like what we say here. First Class restaurant like a nice restaurant.
And I was surprised he ordered dessert. He order salad. He order the dressing for the salad.
To the details of saying chef This is like azeema order a cafardo azeema it means like
invitation or like guests coming to your home or this is a penalty for your mother. He said it is more valuable than invitation
This is something Allah invited us to do.
This is where you spend your money more on your guests more than your guest.
And I will never forget that
he really taught me a lesson that day. Even you know, he was asking me you think they would like Pepsi more than
seven up or this? At that time? I don't know much if I know tell him I wouldn't buy any one of them get something much healthier. But you know, but to that extent he was thinking
When you give the poor person you don't need to tell them this is a cat. Actually, it's much better. Not so you don't embarrass them. Yeah, a lot of people wouldn't come to this a cat. They are very strange. They like the dictate what does a cat has to go?
House what somebody I told them about a poor person that they need help, so give them out. Then he told what somebody told me. What if he buy with the money something like not beneficial? What's your business? Has he given the money and that's it.
You know why this comes? This attitude comes because we feel it's our money.
While the Muslim jurists said as a cat hackles appear as the cat it is the poor people's money. It's not your money.
That's why if I didn't fast for many years, or I didn't pray for many years, okay, I just happen to a lawn that said start over. But if I didn't say can give us a calf for many years, I have to go back and to give the cat for all these years because that's not my money to keep it that's his money the poor people's money. The people who deserve it as a cats money.
it does. It doesn't matter if he's a Muslim or a non Muslim.
I don't know.
I need to look into specifically in feeding for the fall. I know show Michelle what it means it has to be Muslim.
But I don't have any research about this, but I know she's gonna show it to him. Allah said it has to be a Muslim.
Yes, when I behold a lotta radi Allahu Allah and Paula Jia Rajan Illa NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for call. Hallelujah. rasulillah on wa Lacock. Allah will follow according to Allah marotti fee Ramadan for call health did you do majority pooraka Allah Allah all for health esta to enter su Masha rainy Matata behind Allah Allah, Allah for healthy Juma to to remove Tina Myskina Allah Allah to majelis for Odeon Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam br have been fee Tama for call the subject we had a for call Allah, Cora Minda sama Bane Allah but a debate in LA him in football he can be useful Allahu Allah He was seldom bothered and Yabu Toma call it have our dream who or who Sagara would
love to Li Muslim. Narrated Abu hooray rhodiola who run a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said O Messenger of Allah, I am ruined. He asked him what has ruined you. He replied, I've had intercourse with my wife during Ramadan. He then asked him, can you can you get a slave to free? He said, No. He asked, Can you fast two consecutive months? He said no. He asked, Can you provide food for 60 poor people? He said no. He then sat down. Meanwhile, an ad hoc containing dates was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said give this a sadhaka The man said, am I to give to the one who's poorer than we are. There is no poor family than mine between the two
mountains of El Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam thereupon laughed till his canine teeth appeared. He then said go and feed your family with it reported by a Sagara and the version is that of Muslim
para la ne this hadith shows how easy our religion is Lahiya and it's so simple, so easy. I bet you anything of this person. How
been to any one of these four aha or Muftis are few would have made his life miserable.
Yeah, I mean it just show you how nice sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is and how easy our religion is and how complicated we're making our budget.
Would you can you fear sleep? No. Okay. Can you fast 60 days? No, it is a Why? You know, start investigating No. Have you can you feed No You're so low I'm the poorest he loves cars did he check he got a container of dead that he said let's see if it's really 60 feeding absolutely 60 by the gram by the
end of them this religion is taking on that. Yeah, and he on an easy way. We just make things so harsh. so complicated.
Some people ask me questions in so many detailed way that I say to myself like, why are you making so hard?
like somebody's asking me for example question that day about something has to do with adultery.
The What if one of the spouses committed adultery, and the other one
should keep like husband keep his wife she committed adultery for example.
I said that person committed adultery just make though but Allah Subhana Allah continued our line. He's not an adulterer anymore if they repent to Allah, yes, but check what's the Hanbury or the Shafi or the Hanafi madhhab about the adults are staying in marriage How long have adult or somebody repented to Allah? No, no, I want to know the adultery and I keep like back and forth back and forth. But what if the husband has to be told that what should they told us? Yeah, you can tell the husband if there is need like for example you got pregnant you got
STD you got Virgin and you lost your virginity but you commit a sin he committed a sin unrepentant Allah dearly between them and Allah move on in your life. This is my
no like 20 time questions as if like pushing to get you know what you ought to divorce in is that what you're looking for is what the people pushing for so much details and make things so complicated and so hard upon themselves. But this had inherent like give you any
how simple life is. It's unique. Bukhari Rahim, Allah azza wa jal Hanafi, Ashok navadmin say, he narrated this hadith in 10 different chapters and Asahi because there are so many lessons from it at enemies or salah and men came to the Prophet. He was named and other narration His name's Salah, Eben, Sahar, albayalde
Brr Fie tam
olarak and MC Telos zimbio means a container big container in between the two mountain the two dark mountain the two black mountains lab but they are the two dark mountains that should be or the two black mountains because if you go to Medina there is too dark rocks areas of rocks because there's a volcano it used to be there to pour candle rocks in both sides of Medina from the east and from the west. So if you go to the east side of Medina doesn't have a shot here and in the West there isn't how do I know how to be both are dark rocks big dark rocks and they call the slab a tail Or how about a a
when in a solemn loves so much that his canine shows that show you how big wide smile he has a lot it's a lump and in the visa Salaam his mouth was wide in your cannot buddy alphamed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
al Jima having intercourse in the daytime and Ramadan for those who are fasting it is absolutely a sin. That's why the man came as Yasser Allah I ruined my life. I ruined my my day he knows that this is something major and intercourse it means penetration. So anything less than penetration not called intercourse
and penetration even without ejaculation is intercourse. ejaculation without penetration is not called intercourse in Islam.
So he comes and he knows that this is a sin, but he was looking for what is the penalty What should I do
and because of this algorithm out of him Roman law
All of them agreed that having intercourse in Ramadan or while you are fasting it will invalidate your fast
that's why Allah said it's only permissible to have an intercourse with your wife during Ramadan when in the night we're healed Allah come Laila to see me may refer to either an ISA eco it permissible for you during the night to have intercourse with your wife. So that means it's impermissible and other than the night okay?
Until I lost my dad's file, unabashedly, you can approach them up double marketable law in 187, virtual murgee. So they and the penalty here as it seems from the Hadith, freeing a slave
fasting the month, two months consecutive months or two feet 16 skin
Do I have to put this in this order?
Or I'm have a choice.
Anyone in the business of them said to him free a slave? Can you free a slave? He said no. Can you fast? Does the process meant to put them in order?
Or it's a choice
he can choose one of the three he given three things he started with freeing a slave because that's the best way but not nearly because it has to be that and if not equal to the second order
bouhanni for him Allah and Shafi Ahmed said it's in this order if you have a slave to free you must be Can't you go to the fasting if you cannot fast you go to the third okay.
And they said because in the visa Salam that what seems to be the reason for the problem to put them in the order.
And in America Rahim Allah and one duration from an email, Ahmed said no, he has the option to choose from the any one of these three.
Okay. And he said, Because Abu hurayrah Allah and narrated this Hadith, and he said an abuse Allah wa sallam told him and you kept fear. Kira Barrera, a man broke his faster Ramadan by having intercourse and in Ibiza Salam told him or ask him and you can
you call it yours?
We assume shahara in your poem. He said to him free a slave or fast two consecutive months or
feed 60 so or it means an option.
And this is an authentic narrations. And anyway, any the majority took the first position, Lima Matic Rahim Allah in this regard, have this narration that they based their opinion upon, the person should avoid this anyone
at the question
What about the wife?
What about the wife?
would she do the same penalty or no?
If you notice in the visa salad, I didn't mention her at all.
He said to him, you have to fast you have to.
You know, can you free a slave? He didn't say anything about his wife.
That's why an Imam Shafi Rahim Allah and one of the most famous opinion among the Shafilea, and in Rahim, Allah said, there is nothing upon woman. It's the men who carry the burden of it, not the woman.
Why? Because in Derbyshire Salam did in order for him to say anything to his wife, this man's wife,
Malik and Abu hanifa said, That's not fair.
Why we cut
woman's slot. We let them go free. They said no, that's not right. They said woman also has a father. The reason in Ibiza Salaam didn't say anything about the woman to the man because the compensation never started at the end of the guy ended and before it start, he said I can no this is not possible. We are very poor. So it looks like it may be if the conversation continued maybe. And also they said the principal is principal. She committed the sin as well.
Other four said no. It depends. And this third opinion that's what I like.
If she was forced into it,
no kuffaar no penalty. Because the man he said Waqar to Alan rotti. I came on I fall into her. Sounds like he kind of forced himself on her
But if she's the one who initiated it,
she dressed up for him and she put the makeup she put the perfume, she seduced him. No, in this case, she has a penalty and he has a penalty as well.
And that's one opinion hanabi law. And I think that's a fair and more goes more with Sheree as rules and principles.
The person learning from this hadith should make sure that you avoid anything that might lead to sexual intercourse intercourse between you and your wife during the month of Ramadan.
also shows you how Nabi sallallahu Sallam is very well mannered. Any the man said jasola ruin my life.
I did some something terrible. I had intercourse with my wife during the month of Ramadan.
Did you notice in the episode never represented him, never made fun of him. never made any comment about this incident. He just give him solutions.
You know, sometimes we need to learn the solok that we just need. We don't need to make people feel bad or judge people. The point is, is to educate people to bring solutions for people. And that's what the navy seals on them that.
And especially if somebody come to you showing his tober show and repentance to our last panel with the odd
the next holiday Yes.
Very good. He said some organization today when the capital poor people, they start investigating and have a case study or like they have officer for the case in some masajid and make it so complicated.
I want to say that as a different between the days of the process of Solomon our days, in the past couple of days, people are more honest.
And more likely to be truthful. People are poor in general in that society. Okay. So people are honest, especially talk about the companions and this type of people. versus when we talk about modern days, where people can make money out of that can cheat lie. People deceive
people who don't deserve the cat at all comes maybe they use it for drugs, maybe they use it for gambling, maybe use it for stuff for addictions, things of that nature,
then you have the vast majority who really poor people. So for us as individuals, I think we have to build a balance.
So if you see a sign that raised suspicious,
investigate suspicion about the person. This person looks suspicious to me, you know, the way he is.
And like, you see, sometimes you get some sister or brother drop here. I have no one law that says True story. By the way, I need to help
remember that and ask for help in the rest. Then we found out that on the street and alchemy industry,
or just before that, like Alex's called waiting for the same person, drive them up, take off everything they were wearing new clothes, and just
waiting for them.
So some people might come to if you see something that raised a question mark? Yes. But if you don't, in my opinion, you should not you should not be into too much investigation, too much instructions. Because in the end of the day if he lived his life upon him, and I'm worried that because a few bad people we make it so difficult that will affect a lot of good people who have dignity, they will not be able to receive the self.
So I will take the risk of giving one or two people by mistake, but not to prevent the will through people from receiving this account and receiving the help that they need. And whenever you feel suspicious, you don't need to give so much and give a little bit to see to check
He said if someone has a cat to give and now he doesn't he doesn't he didn't do it for years and now he became poor he doesn't have the money to give all this a god the team must first of all the two lessons for all of us that give now before a time comes where you cannot give
us a lesson number two, we say yes this person it's a debt on him to give it so whenever he has an opportunity to pay it off, he should do so.
We'll stop here that is any questions that we have Yeah.
Tomorrow Shall we will have a much faster rate than those
so I think you
do the poor need to be Muslim?
It depends for what reason?
Like which poor you talk for sadhaka General charity No, you don't need to be he doesn't need to be a Muslim.
And then when you were talking about the males a question came in does it What does it mean?
Like breakfast lunch and dinner?
No, just the main meal of the day like here in our culture, it will be for example dinner so just a full meal dinner means rice meat, or pasta and chicken or pasta fish and so like for example in certain country like in Egypt, the main item in the meal is bread Pakistan the same thing without bread so if you're giving this and Pakistan you have to provide bread
and also a meal like for example in some country if you give them beans and bread and it will be full meal, but in other culture does not familiar full meal it means has to have some kind of meat. Okay, so it depends where the people live and where you're going to give that cafaro so the United States a meal it will contain a meat and maybe rice pasta
Yeah, I don't know that dinner the it's lunch more a burger? Maybe double burger from five guys. Make it
It is related is related.
Very good. Can we give that meals to the same place where we living or some other place in the world? Let's say the breastfeeding woman lives in America. Can she feed someone in Bangladesh or in Malaysia? Or Indonesia?
