If I know it's confusing, the name is technically Fatah days unless you're in the UK or you're in Singapore, Malaysia or one of the corners of the world that we're coming in from for these sessions. This is an opportunity that we've had this Ramadan every Tuesday at 3:30pm PST to be able to ask are one of our most senior instructors and in terms of his knowledge, subhanAllah we always internally we always call him our ocean of knowledge. Our own instructors that are Maghrib Institute refer to chef will leave when they're confused about a question or when they're not sure when they need extra guidance and clarification. So he's mashallah one of the most beneficial resources that we have it
on McGard. And he is amazing, and that he always makes himself available for the students as well as much as humanly possibly can. He'll go from a meeting with a government official and he'll come to a q&a with us and then I'll go into a local commitment with his community in Texas declare, like Islamic Center Community shout out to those of you who are coming from there. And mashallah, he's always always stretching himself as thin as possible to make sure that he makes time for us, may Allah reward him, and granted Jenna me. So alhamdulillah he's going to be rejoining us today to answer your questions that have been submitted to the q&a forum on your portal. This is part of the
Ramadan 360 program, but it's a bonus element. So those who are registered for Milan 360. That's how you're coming in through your portal, you have the q&a form linked there, right above the little welcome video that we have. It's under the hand raise icon. There's a q&a forum where you submit your questions for these sessions. If you have a question come in today, please make sure you also refer that to the q&a forum so that we can make sure a we can organize them and if it's been addressed already, we can let you know. And if it's coming up or if it's what do you call it? Maybe not relevant or whatnot, we can filter them appropriately and it's fair to those who submit their
questions on time or submit them ahead of the session that we go in order of that so I just dropped the link to the forum in the Zoom chat here. If you're watching on Facebook or YouTube or anywhere else, inshallah you can just access the the forum if you register for free for Ramadan three sixty.org. org, and inshallah be part of this experience here as well. And shout out to those of you who mashallah I think a lot of people have gotten their questions answered at hamdulillah but for those who are attending live, we appreciate your attendance I know it's a busy day today we just had our and challenge with a man with Sam Sharif, which was beautiful. And now we have this session and
then we have our Ramadan 360 And it's so amazing because insha Allah will have just said to Salim, rejoining us for Ramadan 360 It's been a long year without him so inshallah you guys get a chance to benefit from him as well. Ibrahim, welcome from London, UK. While it was Salam wa medulla it's a pleasure to have you with us. Yes, I'm very very excited for that. It'll be bittersweet but I haven't been we've been we've been missing share sad I don't think we've had a virtual class if I can remember in the past year at least with him. So it's been a way way way too long. I just all we can do is stalk him on social media and keep up with his content there and hamdulillah Speaking of
which, what he mashallah has gotten quite active and he's on his Facebook and on Instagram at now as well. So if you want to keep up with him outside of here, and I believe he's still active on Twitter, answering questions there, I think maybe on Tik Tok as well. So keep up with him that will leave us uni or doctor will leave the CME inshallah and you'll find him I'll see if I can link some of his socials here. Back in the day we had like anybody who's referring questions to us, we just tell them to tweet them to shake well you then you would answer them via Twitter so that used to be a fun experience as well. For those who don't know Shefali also teaches multiple classes with a
mugger he teaches complicated the the thick of the A to Z amount of modern woman's Vic, he teaches what do you call it the thick of the iron vicar. He teaches rays of faith I always forget them but mashallah he has so much content on faith essentials on a mug of online he's touring on site as well so you can get a chance to benefit from him in person and he's got a brand new class that we're hoping to launch inshallah in the next few months to a year as well that you guys are gonna find very beneficial in sha Allah. Allah He was in Manchester just before Ramadan yesterday so Masha Allah was here in Toronto just a couple of days ago as well. They had a little meetup with Schiff
said and Shamar that I wasn't invited to like the staff meetup, so I'm still salty about that. No, but hamdulillah mashallah, he's been a lot of our trips, I've been traveling a lot and it's so nice post COVID to be able to have them now connect with you guys in person and have those meetups with vape essentials folks in Florida and all access pass folks all across the globe, even myself and I'm delighted I've had the honor of meeting many of you guys in person, which has been really kind of surreal to have the names and the faces on screen crossover into the real world. It's a little crazy but it's very beautiful and at the same time and yes Mashallah. And yeah, that's me that that's one
of my favorite things about God is that He knows he has such a emotionally intelligent way of responding and he's so aware of how to deal with sensitive subjects. And mashallah he's very real with his responses. He can bring humor into like really heavy situations So alhamdulillah for him and his, his style of f is responding. Once again, those who have questions Marshall
We have like 200 Something questions that have been submitted so far, we've gone through a good chunk of them. So we've been making good time. But if you have questions that have not been answered, just bear with us, we're still working through them. There was a few.
You know, I just couldn't justify how the how off topic there were like, is my job Hello? Or can I eat this? Or can I do this? So stuff like that some things we have to we have to try to find some excuse to link them to the month of Ramadan so that we can link them very clearly than that. Unfortunately, there are a lot of other courses, a lot of great resources where you might find better responses, but this may not be the best place for it.
Well, yes, the latest class by Shefali that we had on site was the interested A to Z thick of children class. So that one inshallah I don't know if it's still touring, because we had a few select cities were that were able to get it on site in sha Allah, it's going to continue Yes, it is a continuation of the thick of love the thick of woman children. I know the shape. The shape was working on the thick of men as well. So I'm curious to see how that turns out in Sharla very excited. I wonder if a woman or men speak is more conflict more complicated than woman's pick, we'll have to find out in Sharla and I see the shake is joining us Alhamdulillah so inshallah you guys can
buckle up and get ready for the q&a to begin As salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah chef Walid How are you doing today? Wow, it comes down to the level of character I'm doing under allah Alhamdulillah
great to hear great to see you back so we just had you recently for Ramadan 360 Now we're back into our Footlights anything
anything that's been surprising for you shift or anything that's been different for you this Ramadan so far compared to previous years?
A lot of things different for me this
hamdulillah for offering I'm just not feeling very well with some of our I have
a very bad severe back pain I had a surgery before an alarm so it just ending up a little bit so it's been very different from one for me
so I just asked him to turn things to be good
have an MRI to do Shala right after this event are supposed to do it earlier but I would have missed the photo night
two hours later I'm gonna so that's been a very different the second thing is
I'm amazed by how my body was able to survive in a very little amount of food that's normal
like I would say
just some soup
water maybe three dates between So on the far
very liked foods like like very library small amount and can rely on like surviving and
nice so one thing also I'm I tried some of the code but you know the sheer seeds see it notes here
yeah, you put in a water overnight and that's what I have for breakfast for
it has actually done to be like a bubble like a lot of water on it. So when you
consume it this water stay in your stomach and release water during the day so you don't feel hydrated much wow, that's interesting. That's something new for me I tried this on Milan and it's working very well actually.
All right. So we're tips mashallah from the chef as well.
So this over like unfortunately nothing much but um, the mustard is every year I'm I'm amazed by how people coming forward
you know, praying and my semesters for law. I asked Allah just to give me the strength to be able to serve the community as they deserve along I mean yeah, but it means it's like a fish a fish let's start last time we were promised any delay alrighty All right shift exactly like I was just telling them like shift will go from like meeting a government official coming to our session going to go into his community you never stop Milliput Berg and your time and your health. I mean, Mila heal you and just like look there for being with us even if even though you're not feeling the best and you're going through difficult or Milan, may Allah reward you immensely.
All right, so All
right. All right.
So the first question that I have
Have that's on topic is are the dreams and Ramadan protected from the shaytaan
No, no the protection from the Chapin doesn't mean that the ship one has all the sharpener no influence on you. They have zero influence now the person still can have a good time which is on the ship on with dreams and also people can have bad dream nightmares.
So bad dreams can come from your inner thoughts by the way it's not only from the ship so you still can have bad dreams and the champagne that are chained and Ramadan are the leaders of the champagne Mara that shell scheme and some of the Hadith the head of the shell being the worst of the Charlene or we can say that the champagne that they are prevented from or chained
or chain from certain things you know, but not all things
and we don't know what are these exactly but it looks like they are prevented from being able to
mislead most of the people to leave the obligation that's why people fast any talents think about it. I don't know about you have saw that and I thought about myself
it is fasting outside on the line is very hard. Yeah.
Even making up your back
on the ship on is worked so hard on yachts. But the Ramadan he is prevented from being able to influence you. You will find the dead I'm about to start. Yesterday was hard today's okay.
I think that's part I do believe that this part of that preventing the shell beam from having influence on discourage you for the bad or making it so hard to give you that strength in advance. And Allah Allah does this only because he loves you and He wants you to come to him and to forgive yourself.
In Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi salam, when he was doing a decaf
he was walking his wife back. And two men passing by.
So nobody saw Salam said, Hey, I know wouldn't be so bad. For example, this woman late in the night coming, he said, Hold on. I know it was a Romana. He said, Just take it easy. There's no one this is just as my wife, Sofia. Then what He sets us on it. He said I'm telling them that because I was worried that the shape I will put thoughts in their head. That can be the reason for distractions, for they're there for them to be doomed by these thoughts. So the Chapin can put Oh, who's this woman as was was just these thoughts? What's the point of the shebang can distract so that means the shape man have an influence.
And that was in the last 10 days of Ramadan on the PROSONIC Attica. So from this Habib and others we see that the chain that doesn't mean that he completely not exist in the world or have no zero influence. No.
Yes, it's either the leader of them or chain, or they are chained in certain areas, but not all areas. Or they are it became like a metaphor. So don't like that. But it is
to say it is only a metaphor I think it's going to be all the above. But one of the meaning of that wouldn't be see so many Myrt so much mercy of Allah so much forgiveness from Allah, they feel that they are chained, they feel like actually there are a chain that means that they don't have they feel like they're powerless in front of all of us mercy and forgiveness.
So these are the meanings that the sculptor Rahim Allah had mentioned regard to that heavy
just like a look or chef with a thorough response. The next question is I prayed that are we home at home as the closest boss is an hour away? How late Can I pray until Canada we prayed up until Fletcher
Yes, how it can be frayed or amplified.
Beautiful. The next question is if I a wife have savings and my husband and his parents are in debt, can I help and does that count as HCA?
Thanks somebody that is eligible for Visa card as long as they don't have the means to pay it off. And as long as the debt is legit.
So for example, if somebody takes that to gamble something to give that to somebody like haram you know you can give them probably a second
but somebody did something I need to repent I was handed down a change and still have to pay this is still can be given from the second or something
wanting to get a legitimate legitimate debt, even if that person is as close to you as your spouse, your children, your parents.
By the way, an agreement as far as I know by the formula.
The next question is, Can you taste what you're cooking while you're fasting?
You can taste it, but you cannot eat it.
So what is the distinction? We've got to swallow?
Okay, so you taste and spit it out or you garlic is spit it out. Okay. All right. I had to tell my mom that the next day is having by the lips on the tip of your tongue. So. Okay, sounds let's get mouthful. Okay. Yeah, yeah, I just I hate to break it for you guys. Your throat is not one of the tools of tasting food.
eating food. Fair enough. The next actually, just on a side point, one of our staff members Sheikh was asking today as well, for asthma medication. I think this may have been responded to in faith IQ in the past. But can you take asthma medication while you're fasting? Or does it depend on the type of medication that's going because that tends to go straight to your throat? But it's like, through air, it's pushed out through air or something, right? Yeah, the asthma spray is okay. But there is some treatment by asthma, which is people put a mask on and there is evaporating water with medicine goes into that. It's like a humidifier table. That's what breaker fast. Okay, that's helpful.
The next question is, I didn't pay as a golfer in the past several years, should I pick a date or calculate the exact date when exam was applicable to the T minus like nine to 10 years back.
So you pick a date for your zakat from now on, and this year is that you do your estimate, okay? And you just do your best. And you're always trying to get more than just to be on the safe side because there's a cat is one of the pillars of the slot. So you want to make sure that you're on the right side.
Okay, so just to clarify, so they're saying do they pick a date now or calculate where the Nisar was applicable? In the previous years? Doesn't really make a difference?
Yeah, it's already past you. Yeah. So whatever ever date let's say now my net from now on my second would be Ramadan first. What do you know what 2000 to 2001 2003 2004 all the way to 2022 is Do you don't wait until Ramadan? 10 or Ramadan? 20.
Okay, sounds good. The next question is, as a female sometimes the hijab a burqa that I'm wearing covers a significant part of my forehead when making salons should I make sure that my forehead is not covered for my salon to be valid
because it's actually your forehead touching the floor. It's like your knees touching the floor.
Your your your hand if you have a good job searching the floor for
sounds good. The next question is, I work during the week and I try my best to read the RE citation of the Quran every day. I also join in online with cron reflect and all the other sessions Almagro offers. However, I rarely have time to read the translation of the Quran is joining her and reflect more than enough to fulfill that for me, or do I have to still make the effort to read the translation of the Quran?
I mean, it's not this or that if you can do it, and if you cannot help, it's just not recommended for you to read and understand. So do whatever you can under the sun one maximize your benefit from the Quran Maximizer if that's what you can do 100 likes get May Allah bless y'all. I mean, the next question is, do we pay the guy on the same jewelry every year or just once for any new jewelry?
So the jury that does not for business, a little more hemella have three opinions about many of the scholars, I can call majority but actually like none to be an authority. They said there is no Secretariat at all. It's like having a car having a house.
The other one and this the sheffey and amalickiah
and the other hand you have enough and Abdullah one relation. They said that is the cat on
the jury that you use.
And there is a third opinion which is sold.
One narration from the 100 grams of added Hadith
I do have a lot been towards that as well. They said there's a cat of the jury. That is you for us not for trade
that you give you give an amount of money on its behalf that gold once in your lifetime
so I bought today a set, I give something on the outside, I got next year a new bracelet I give something in the press ring as long as gold.
You give something for the sake of almost kind of data that should be a no. And that opinion the third opinion actually the opinion that it is combined between all evidence.
Those who said you must give zakat they said Allah Allah says in the Quran,
he told us to give the cat and he did not distinguish and he said those who hold gold and aqua Iconia Zona dabbled. It did not distinguish between the gold that you use or you trade for animals general.
The other people have said no, there is not a cat on the jury that used at all.
They said because Nabi SallAllahu sallam said, the horse the house, even though it has more value than the gold, but yet there's no Zakat and because it's something that you use when stamina,
it's meant for us, okay? Even if you don't use your horse for a whole year, you don't write it for us.
So that's what they said, This is consistent with the principle of Sharia.
The third opinion, the first group also said that didn't maybe serve a preschool who said you have to close the gap. This is going to be so solemn, so a woman, her daughter was wearing a bracelet, you know, on her hand, and that bracelets thick and has gold in it. And I said, Do you give Allah's rights over this? She said, No, she said, Would you want almost like Allah to give you to replace it with?
This is from hellfire. She's not when she gave it away. I said, I got a rain of gold. And I was so proud of it. I showed to the processor. I just got it. He said, Do you give a lot of rights over this gold? She said, I didn't give anything. They said would you
like this rank to be made of fire? And they've said no. And she gave out she gave it up.
So they said from this, this is a jury that was used and in every system yet demand the rights of online they said the rights of Allah over the goal, there's only one thing which is
second, that's what's obligatory.
The majority of the football has said no, look at the Sahaba the Companions they did not understand from this general text, or this incident that there is rules derived from it that we have to give zakat and the jury that is us that's why you find someone like actually she said there's a cat of the jury is to lend it to your sister to use it some time. Somebody to use
and and many said that.
So the third opinion came and it kind of metal.
It says there is a right over the gold specifically.
And though right is to give something on its behalf
because this woman with her daughter's bracelets,
as we know the gold only you have to give the Gatorade if it's 85 grand.
And a bracelet will not wait 85 grand a ring like actually it's not 85 grand. Also, we know that the gold has to stay for a whole year to give us a cat on it. Now she just got it.
And this woman's daughter she didn't even the person didn't ask how long it's been
more than a year or
so that shows you the dimension was not talking about the Zakat that we're aware of and lecture halls lighting and other set. So because of this, we say that they should give something on its behalf
any type of chart on its behalf.
And that was this way instead of saying this hadith are obligated or incidental or incidents we cannot generate. Now we still take that hadith and follow that hadith. And we still follow the ayat and we also follow the principle of Sharia there is no zakat on the used item.
So would that opinion combined between all related evidence and principles? And that's what I lean towards and that's my fat
you know there are some slightly more mature questions that are coming up inshallah in a bit so I'm going to ask Forrest I might put you in the waiting room and he had other young years that we have Inshallah, please just be mindful of that so that you can make any arrangements put on earphones, anything like that.
The next question is
I asked a question about being chronically medically unable to fast and I'd already paid my fovea, then trying to fast from food but not water and if my intentions would be accepted, however, my attempt failed to fast from food as my symptoms returned with my doctor got mad at me for attempting to fast food. So I'm making the intention anyway and eating as little as possible just enough to take my medications.
I don't know is that they didn't finish that into this question. I think this is a person that who submitted a question last time as well. Do you like do you encourage them to continue as they're doing or to change their thing because they're still trying to pass but eating a little bit here and there just to take their medications
I just I just want to tell you there's not a lot there for you being caring and you want to fast and to prepare for fasting but the fasting rule is not up to me and to you.
You do this for a lot it's correct cost Allah Allah tells you do it
there is no such thing called fasting while eating and fasting while drinking does not fasting
that you came up with that and the religion is not something you come up with it's not according to what you think is good or what I feel about the religion is not up to your feeling and my feeling
okay, the religion is up to the rules the rules clear that's not called fast
and you cannot be fasting while eating a lot of bed or drinking that's not that's number one number two, the rules are clear.
If you are sick and you cannot fast and you can show I will be healthy later on you can make up these days later on if you can if you're not expected to be healed from the sickness that when you do the video there is no failure if you can make up these days again video only for those who cannot do it at all in the future.
And then guess what? hamdulillah if you cannot fast again, you are getting very worried of fasting every single year. What do you want better than that? That's better than your fasting
because you're gonna get the idea of a full perfect fasting
so you don't need to any we please stop trying to be more religious than the religion
okay, that religion is above you. Okay Don't try think you're more righteous than Islam or more righteous than what Allah has ordained for you or Muhammad was done for you. That's not correct.
In the reseller syndrome and loss of data photos of
almost 1/3 of the world you tremendous report and if you fast while you know and your doctor told you it's not good for your health too fast you are sinful by fast
I'll make that again. If you fast and you know that fasting will harm you and it will cause damage to you
you know a lot too fast
and I was gonna
guide all of us here you bring relief to you?
I'm sure obviously everyone asks or does these things that are with the best of intentions and I think this is a reboot sister who's submitting the question. So may Allah make it easy for you but yes, I mentioned the chat is you're getting the reward of fasting consider yourself blessed. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Inshallah be grateful and Hamdulillah that you have that concession and that you get the same reward you don't need to make any efforts to keep to get that reward it's already Alhamdulillah written that makes good intention or good was not good enough.
Is the coats are coming out again. Isola This is the shift lead coat machine is we need we need a t shirt line we need something I keep saying we need merch from you shift. The next question is
does the daily yellow discharge when in a pure state outside the time of menstruation and validate your widow
now doesn't because this is something normal woman used to have this during the process along all their life and in the midst of never mentioned anything in regards to that. So that anything that is commonly happened between people on the Sharia did not speak about it. It means it is there is no rules regarding
the next question, trigger warning it does mention miscarriage. The question is I understand it if there is bleeding from him.
miscarriage within the first 120 days of women can still pray and fast by making a little before every prayer. What if the miscarriage was after the first 120 days
that's became the fast stick the symbol of the postnatal bleeding which is 40 days or less or more depends on how much you bleeding and there is you don't make up you don't make the salaat you're not allowed to pray you're not allowed to fast and so
again, the next question I'm going to put first in the waiting room again, sensitive ears, be careful of them below turn your volume down during Ramadan outside of fasting time. Is the hadith of a woman having to accommodate her husband's desires still counted or still count or to be cursed by angels? Or is the fact that it's Ramadan a valid excuse to not have to do it sometimes it's just too much to have to do it then doable. So then prayed that we then wake up for the Hajj with slash prepares to her and then have budget
let us no doubt that the the fulfillment and the relationship between the husband and wife the sexual relationship, it is one of the form of active worship that can be so solemn so themselves, yeah had to come in people they had to come sadaqa there is a charity, it's an act of charity as if you're giving charity.
Okay, as if you're giving sign up, and it is rewarding things if the right intention is
and if that's something that pleases you and pleases Him, I think it is important to be fulfilled even that let me try to manage it almost every night for that, you know, sometimes after a week, maybe you guys do it on the weekend or, or take shower and like after that it depends, especially for newlyweds and stuff like that. That's the proposal. But
from Atlanta, it's not an act, it doesn't Yanni does not give an exception to the rules.
But there is other area which is being considered.
For couples, I always say
it's okay sometimes to have sex. But it's more important than versus to make love.
And there's a difference between the two.
It's just not the it's not a mechanical thing, or just going on, I'm done over with it. Love making love. It's a sexual relationship, but with a lot of emotions attached to understanding. So
when I hear questions like bills on like a man or a woman don't really have any consideration for the other person's feeling, I feel like this is just a sexual way. Which is I understand that. It's a natural urge, you know, what should not be the only way that they connect physically to each other? There was a lot of understanding and concentration taking place. But in the same times, some people like over exaggerate this, but
it became like
a Prevention's and it became very hard on people.
So just strike the balance between these two concepts.
Let me just let virus miskeen back into there.
Already. The next question is, if a woman is on her menstrual cycle and not fasting, is it okay to go to the gym and openly drink water when working out? Or is it better to not do this publicly? What about eating at a restaurant in daylight hours during Ramadan? Or is it better to take it home and eat in privacy?
this gym is Muslims, around Muslims on the rural strengths in the Muslims area or Muslim restaurants. Not a lot. But if it's an area completely non Muslims, there is no Muslims there.
in a non Muslim country, I have more lenient toward that.
The Fukuhara him Allah Allah Allah debate
is when we don't like when you break your fast and you don't eat openly or you don't eat. Is it the respect for the month or the respect for the people?
Because those some people have said even with the respect for the month,
they told you even if you don't fast like woman on her period, she's not allowed to eat or drink to stay also fast. Some of them said that. I don't think that's correct. So it's not about the time it's not about the month itself. It's about the people. The chain the respect for that who shot it.
means that the Muslims will arrive so since we are a non Muslims country that's quite different rules. So I only applied to Muslims gathering or an area there's a lot of Muslims like a mall or mashallah, like in Minnesota some malls are like 90% Somalis, you know, I've been there.
That doesn't mean we don't give it the same rule as somebody in a rural area and Villanova
to get out and
suburb, Manhattan, whatever was no one there like or like suburb, or like New York can barely see animals on there. That's the difference between the two. It's also common to hear that just I hope that when you go to the gym, you have a special area only for sisters to exercise not in front of men.
Like a local chef, the next question is, when you pull that up is are we supposed to count the retirement account money for as your as a guy calculation as well?
There is two opinions among the modern scholars in regard to this first one that says yes, you do calculate it, and you deduct from it, the amount the amount that you don't have an access over. So for example, my retirement plan my retirement, it's $100,000 this year.
Okay. $100,000 If I take it right now, they're going to give me a penalty of 30% so that means I have $70,000 I have absolute access to it right now.
So you give a cut over 30%
because that money, you have access to it.
Okay. And other opinions said no, you only give us a cap
the year they allowed you to have full access for it.
So if we give you full access for it that year, you mean you don't wait until let's say if we give you full access to it in January 2025
Yeah, but my Zakat is Ramadan and Ramadan is gonna be in let's say November.
Don't wait. immediately give zakat on the same day have access to it. Then when your day of zakat comes you give another as a cat on it, even if it's like only few weeks difference
in the sand. So
that's the second opinion and I lean more now towards the first opinion and that's the photo of I'm just simply a Muslim tourist in North America
you know, okay, so we have some interesting questions coming up there's a few I'll try to get through as many as we can. The next is
can you apply for divorce during Ramadan and your partner is in another continent
you can apply for divorce in Ramadan and I would like us to use more the Shediac terms you know my husband,
maybe you don't like him, but this partner is just a very
very non Muslim it kind of turns and I would like all of us to start to have this this has to do with identity as a Muslims. What anyway?
Yes, you are allowed even if he is in another country. Yes.
Perfect. The next question is
can the husband pick a photo for him and his wife for notification of the fast or does the wife have to pay separately? Especially if he's the sole provider?
See what is occupied generals anything that is financial.
It is okay for someone to do it in your behalf. Any financial penalty in any area in any case in Islam
or any financial obligation I have as Academy. My wife want to pay my as I got this year, just like a lot. I hope she's online.
Listening but okay, that's fine. I pay her. That's why I have a follow up. She can pay for me I can pay for her. Just take it as a general.
But what is it none. It's not my no I'm not gonna do that.
It became consumer. Like not disagreement. No, she has to pay for her own he pays for his own.
The said no.
The next question is I volunteer at a prison and some inmates are not getting their square meal or Iftar meal because their Ramadan tray request hasn't been approved. So they won't be given us a warm meal and if they opt out of their dinner, which is before Maghrib time they won't be served Iftar Are they still required to fast not knowing when they'll eat the next meal?
I don't know, I need to think about that. But that's something they have. They have to talk to the to the jail administration.
And they can say I'm not going to eat. I am the Kansai. That's going to put them there live in northern kind of the SEC and stuff like that. I think that's what forced
restriction or we can take the food keep it I don't know what we can do with the trailer bus. But that's something I can get for tomorrow because I don't know the exact details.
This is something more of administrative right now. And then we can fast obviously, you cannot stay
30 days not cool at all. So in this case, like
obviously, there's a valid excuse but this is something has to be looked at more white people on the ground.
Sounds good. This is I think this is where advocacy is also important because it looks like they have Ramadan trays, but they don't have a system that's accurate or that that is timed well enough and stuff like that. So rather than says in the chat that Cara is working on this on this problem, so it's important to support organizations and to make sure that you're also lending your voice when things like this are going on. Just like a fair shift. The next question is, do we have to break our fast with dates or water? Can we break it with anything else? Like juice or the food that we've been preparing for dinner?
Yeah, you can. That's similar to break it to a date or something sweet. You don't have dates, like grapes, like that.
Um, it's much healthier to
I was gonna say some sweet could be misinterpreted into something else. The next the next question is do I have to be in will do when I'm reading the Quran? Does it make a difference? If it's a real Quran or through an app?
It is only recommended to have a vote when you read Quran or you touch the Messiah. I mean, the study was actually only recommended but it's not what there's no proof that it has to be white. Well, you have to have to read or to touch.
The next question we just mentioned shift we're eating and drinking in public. This case someone's asking Can a woman eat or drink in front of mushrooms or non mushrooms in Ramadan? Does that matter?
Just be respectful.
So I guess the answer is yes. Respectfully. Yeah. But like it's not like I'm going to put the whole food and eat in front of you now you should not
but let's say he walk and I'm taking a sip of water put it away. That's fine.
That's not like if he saw you're drinking or the drink a simple take a bite for his law class. I'm sinful. No, just be respect. Avoid like hey, let's talk about something weak sitting and talking the other time and I'm bringing my tea and my coffee and my sweets and my corner sofa and like, Oh, sweetheart, you know, I know any fasting is like this guy's great. Hopefully a lot more of you enjoy
like the acting out of this scenario, it seems quite personal.
the next question is
during this inner pack fast is it possible to join to nias for one day of fasting?
What that means to work duniya like tonight like intentions for one day?
I always thought
so like I'm intending to do the fast like Monday and Thursday and I'm doing the fast of the six days of Shaban I'm doing the faster or shovel sorry and I was on my one like a normal one. It doesn't apply for Ramadan. I guess specifically, this is just a fasting question.
Okay, you only can join the intention between a fast that is obligate. That is recommended a specific recommended fast and with non restricted class
like you like for example.
Today is Monday and 13th.
Any month it's Monday 30.
let's say six days of Chawan and Monday and Thursday, because it's any six days of show it can pass.
But you cannot say today is on offer and I'm making up a day from Ramadan. You cannot do that, according to the majority of the Boko Haram IMO.
The next question is I'm self employed and I've been advised by my accountant to save 50% of my income to pay the taxes in the next financial year. This will be due in June.
re slash Jun 2024 Do I pay Zika on this money is it it is in my account but I do not touch this money
whatever you owe IRS at that point you can deduct it from your second what whatever you estimated No
How would you know for sure, you haven't done your taxes yet. Right? So what do you do? Like if you have a company B calculate that it's clear even that's why people paid second people their taxes installment first quarter second quarter so so far, so but if you say no, my
because sometimes this 15% can be more than what your IRS can be. Yeah. So that's I'm saying, but if I know for sure my I know 100% Now that my taxes will be 2000 and I put it on the side 1500
I know which was going to be more than that. That's 1500 that you have on the site you don't include in your second because it's already belong to someone else.
But you know what I'm putting $5,000 I'm not sure it might be 3000 might be 4000. I'm not sure. In this case. No, you go with the minimum amount of the 200% sure about on the rest you included in your psychiatry.
Okay, sounds good. The next question is can I read the grant through an app during my period
Yeah, you can even from regular massage
sounds good. The next question from the app will be all the focal heart will agree with it
from the massage sound of our own say no you have to the majority of the vocab said you have to have a book. But as I said earlier, there's no really clear proof about having mobile must just do the best you can say it's recommended.
The next question is can we pray tahajjud after we prayed are with her.
If you pray with that should be the last thing of your day. So if you're going to plan to pray
to head to play more
when the Imam do his Witter stand up and add one more raka
So you ended an even number then after that you can pray to her Didn't you make with her because then there is a solemn said make your last prayer in the night Waiter
So that's what I would recommend you to do tomorrow if I did my waiter and I wasn't planning but I woke up like you and I still have 10 minutes Yes, you can pray to Rakhine that'd be so solemn it was reported that he prayed to occur after his return
the next question is I'm a Portuguese reverts. I want to know what are the best things I can do to protect slash benefit my family in the hereafter? They know about Islam but they are yet to accept it.
Just be nice to them Be kind to them give them Dawa. Explain to them what Islam is giving them data through your actions they see how check out how it's life changing to be a better person.
And keep make the art for them. You know, and do good deeds and like Cherokee and he said the Allied donated this for your sake. I asked you buy this good deed to guide them. Ask Allah by His names and attributes to guide them malice hunted down and this blessed time to guide your parents and all those who are misguided or those who are far away from Islam or those who are not Muslims to guide them to the top law and to
make us righteous children to our parents along
the next question is when reciting Quran from the middle of the surah what is the best way to begin do you say ultimate Allah and the bus Mala or just one or the other?
Masala all the way from the beginning of the surah not in the middle. If you both started reciting Allah subhanaw taala said Purana Festac when you read the Quran, you say oh, the Blankenship CCL Dialectology out will lessen the elimination of a gene I will be less than Hamza you want to you want to. There's many different ways you can say any one of these and you start recycling.
The next question is I work for an IT company who gives company shares as part of their yearly bonus and also I am Roy enrolled in the employee stock option. How do I do I calculate Physica many Islamic websites give different options and I would like to know the correct one. I normally see the total profit and gives the guy on the profit CAD the advice
now you're basically what you do you you
Look at the stocks how much it's worth, how much the is worth and the day feels a cat then you get 2.5% of the total amount. So if it's worth $1,000,000.02 point 5%
But again that goes back to what we said earlier what are the stocks or retirement plan like 401k for example.
Okay. So here
goes back to what I said earlier some of the going to, if you if you liquidate the stocks right now, there is a penalty of 30% So, you take that 30% out and you pay on the 70%
Okay, and those who said no no zakat until you receive it you have full access to it.
They will say you give zakat on the profit of it so you made a profit of
20,000 this will be included in your income as $20,000
Okay and you give us a cat to add it to whatever amount of money cash and salary that you've been making and you add it into this the cap calculation but I do believe that this is not right the right thing is to evaluate how much all the stocks worth Thank you give us a Katana
and the next question is how do we calculate gold ornament value for ziggu Live market price provides the rate but there's no way we would get that rate if he went to sell our jewelry, should we find out the actual real market selling price and calculate the value accordingly.
Now the gold has price like there is no that's not true. I don't know I talk about the gold and silver has a price if you go look and what's the price of the gold. They tell you that's the price to go. The price can be different based on the jury the based on the
the work is that the artist has done into it that's can make the goal different. But the gold school they both up to the
24 karat gold How much is it? That's the that's the way that we define the isapres. But I don't know what you mean the price will be different from one place. Because if you talk about the jury that it is you have we talked about the rules regard to the jury.
If you want to give us a cat on the jury, according to the forecast, and you have to give us a cat on the jury that you use, you don't calculate and it the stones, the diamonds that are platinum, it's like why gold platinum, that's almost a cabinet, you look at the cap of the gold, the pure gold, the 23 or 21 carats or 23 cards.
These are calculated let's get more complicated what's come 18 carats and stuff like that because in a team a team grind that means you have to calculate
the gold versus the copper.
So it's not going to be the same percentage. So you have to isolate it and to calculate how much that's exactly. But if you want to save your head, saved a headache, you just treat it as if it is 24 karat and
just a pure goal.
There's some comments in the chat like a I think if someone says you recommend like asking for an appraisal I guess to get an idea of how much it would be worth Is that does that good idea? Yeah, yeah. If you couldn't, if you couldn't figure it out. Let's say I have a ring and have a big stone on it. I don't know what's the weight of the stone versus the weight of the ring? Yeah, you got to look for experts to give you that.
Or what if it's just a gold piece but like someone said, you know they're asking you about ornaments when sold they don't get the same prices when you buy just the gold itself. So can you go to like a shop and have them appraise the value of this item? That's cool item. Yeah, you can do that too. But they're gonna there is no one will sell gold on it is based on how much online that tells you. What's the price of the gold is that's how it works. The difference will be over
the order that is made into the gold that will raise the price up, not the weight of the gold itself.
And again, I don't believe that there is a cat on the jury.
So the only way I can imagine what you're talking about if you are in the business of gold business, you trade if you're in a business, you own a business you trade you buy gold and silver you buy gold and you sell like jewelry. In this case we see how much this item will be worth
and now you include the stones
because now it's not about gold, it became a little dirty job. It became
a business trip. So that's rain regardless of gold diamond, whatever I was worth 2000. That still does.
That's a completely different way of calculating.
Question is, last year, Jeff mentioned that it's the best to pay once a week after you have them rather than than Ramadan. If you currently pay during Ramadan, how would you go about changing your date to a different month based off of this intention? I didn't say it's better. That's not correct. I didn't say that. I said it was reported that, if not all the law and said that I'm actually going to job 100 years ago to be mahalo that he said, give us a cotton hora. But it doesn't mean it's better. I was just counting the idea that a lot of people think that zakat has to be a normal bond or shouldn't be a normal, you can do wrong of actually looking for the ledger and reward more
because of the virtue of the time. That's why they were just telling you that that's not the case in all the time. Also, there's other narration that the seller used to give this occurred on Shabbat before Ramadan. So for all one comes become pure, purified themselves. So there's a little different logics behind why people do that.
So what's the question just as a comment on that issue? So the question again,
that again, it was saying that if you currently pay during Ramadan, how would you go about changing your date to a different month based off that? No, you don't change you just stick with the date you have.
The next question is, my mother has six children and breastfed all of us hence, she wasn't able to fast for an entire Ramadan for each year her children were born and the next year for when she was breastfeeding. Her question is how should she make up those fasts that were missed either due to pregnancy slash bleeding after birth slash breastfeeding all these years, she has given Vidya for two years but hasn't kept a record of it.
She just good she feed a meal per day. But there's no she doesn't need to make up the days.
Yes, it is a good question. And there was a quite a few questions that were similar to that. So hopefully that covers all of it. The next question is,
let's see. Sorry, there's we're running out of on topic questions. So I'm trying to keep as focused as possible, but if we are running out and shall we might take some off topic questions if they slide in. The next question is I do not get a clear white discharge to show the end of my period towards the end of my period, there comes a time when I go completely dry with no discharges, but after some time, this varies from a few hours up to a day I may get discharged again. So during this time of doubt, should I do will still immediately after seeing dryness and start fasting and then reduce muscle if I get the discharge again after some time, or should I wait for some time to be
sure that my period has ended before doing so?
dryness is one of the sign of the ending of period. It's either dryness or clear discharges.
Next question is and children attend Christian Easter services or assemblies especially during Ramadan? Is it okay for them to do their own prayers are best not to go?
No, you're not allowed to attend in the celebration of Easter. This is a religious celebration and Muslims should not celebrate that or be a part of that.
That's irrelevant Easter is coming up I think this upcoming weekend. The next question is I'm married and I share my bed with my husband can I recite my Qur'an while on my bed and is it compulsory to have a doula resetting the ground? The second one you already answered the first part I guess.
Yeah, I lost the DNA the Quran Allah pm Oh.
They mentioned I was standing and laying down settings. So you can never tell someone the way he came to him while he is on that. He says that has had an act as sort of a low annual idea with some of them. So you can
you don't have to have mobile you don't have to have hijab on. But can he? Make sure that you're in an appropriate position?
This is a bit of a repeat question, but we'll take it this is I've been told the fovea can be paid to make up your missed periods. Do you still have to make them up as well?
No, sir, nobody ever
said that you pay video for missed fasting because of your period.
No, these days have to be made up. There's no failure for such thing.
This is your makeup the days that you must figure only for those who are sick and cannot fast for the rest of our lives are not expected to be able to pass during to old age or sickness.
And the final question is interesting.
worried but someone's asking what's the penalty of a woman that forced herself to fast at early pregnancy when she loses the baby is there a penalty
no there's no penalty on that but
she should make her stop fighting to photograph her and learn from that mistakes that's the problem with that said people try to be more religious than the religious
and it's a sad this mentality is exists in a lot of people mind that they think they're more righteous than the deen itself or can be more righteous than what's in listen
Nabi SallAllahu Sallam he said they were hiding the people they heard about the process alarms live and what he does what kind of prayer he does on this event it in the resource they look at diploma a god is it that's too little we can do better
we should do better that's the process Salamis for sent for giving that's why he doesn't do too much.
Until it is dangerous. That's why maybe so Samson, Yanni my body of Ancelotti, very seven those who leave my way are not from my Alma
just stick to the way of Muhammad Sallallahu it was
almost to keep us on the straight path males my father, reward your sister and replace you with a better child.
Last week, there's somebody asked questions about what if I traveled to
a city where the aid started? And I'm only 28 days
I mentioned that you fast secretly, but I reviewed that and I reviewed that opinion which is that's what's on my head at that time please. And I found that the majority of the Pokhara hang on yes it's an opinion but this month very strong opinion. And I want to correct myself actually it is
you should break your fast with them and you make up the day later on.
You'll make up the day later on but you break your fastball why?
I think that's something I said but the other the other scenario where I didn't say it this way. I just sent it let's clear it. So if I go there and it is eight, I only did 28 days. What I do, I break my fast for them and I make up that day later.
I go there and ate. Okay, I already fasted 29 days. Good. Past 30 days good
players. I go there and they are fasting.
And today is my the 30th
luck today is my 31st Day from Allah. We know there is no 31st
and they are fasting the city that I own right? Do I break my fast secretly?
Or I fast with them?
I found that the skeleton handle a lot many of them mache Humberto man the fit well, many of the modern scholars, he says no, you fast with them.
Because it'd be so so powerful.
And that extra day will be a volunteer
either from the beginning of the month or whatever.
So, but you don't break the unity in the gym out the Muslim.
So I hope now it's clear
is that the left shift? Does that will affect all of you as well for submission of all your questions. One quick clarification, someone's just where they don't they're not sure they said, Jeff, are you seeing that on your period? You can touch the actual must have? I don't believe you said that. Right. I think you said that. There's differences of opinion on this and they let you clarify. I said yes. I said yes, you can. Okay, you can touch during during your period, because I just said touching the most have.
And we'll go is not must.
And when you don't have when you have your period, you don't have mobile. So just just recommend, but there's
nothing that like I don't see any evidence that they used to say you had for a woman I've heard period not to touch the Messiah, either it's weak Hadith, or it is heavy, that is not clear. So it's an ambiguous there's nothing at all like really clear about this. Okay, like in this process?
I know this not the most paints opinion, majority opinion, but I think it is the strongest opinion at least in my opinion.
Okay, which is that Kamala authorship for that clarification? And yes, it does that go through for all of you for your submission of questions. This was our third fifth one. I wish if we did good today. That's right. Yeah, honestly, we I start running out of questions. So that's definitely good. Alhamdulillah we're gonna need you guys to stop
are patting that q&a forum in sha Allah with on topic questions please there are still questions remaining but like there's like 70 that are completely off topic so we've gone through most of them
literally just ended this along with a cut him to him and Kathy I don't even know about I can feel like praise you as you deserve to be praised. They asked you about your names and attributes, that Almighty Allah, Nana for him and bottle of water Joab
that your ALLAH forgive our sins and forgive the sins of our parents and raise our parents level and gender gather us with our loved one or a spouse or children or family members of friends and genetic name.

and soothe the heart of those who are suffering around the world, especially our brothers and sisters and Philistine and afflicted by the earthquakes and by storms around the world and, and from the war and from the
camps and refugees in camps. There's so many people around the world they are Imperial servants,
bring relief to them and make us means to help them. The ally asked me to bring victory to those who have been oppressed and to bring strength to those who have been
who are weak and to heal those who are sick and to guide those who are misguided. And we ask you a law that anyone who leads a fair for the Muslims, that to be guided and to be
righteous and to be a person of mercy and a person of wisdom as they lead their community, their country their congregations. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give success to the scholars and to the drought and to our community here on the west and to bring
them together upon the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah
and as this month of Ramadan come to almost
half of what we asked you to accept whatever gone from Ramadan and to help us and whatever left from Ramadan.
