Ramadan 360. Every Tuesday this month, we've been having bonus spotlights with Shay equity biscuity, who is our president at a motor Institute. He's also our senior scholar. He's on the on the board of Amgen, American Muslim jurists Association. And this is his specialty and hamdulillah is to be able to give us a quick and responses to some of our heaviest questions for the month of Ramadan, some of the things that come up every year and things that, you know, you might have unique situations pop up in your EBA. And then in your family situation, and in the way that in the way that the month kind of plays out for you. She has ladies joining us in just a second, but just a reminder of the
rules for both websites. One is that you need to be in V mug, or the Ramadan 360 portal, you need to be registered in order to submit your questions. So for coming in on Facebook or YouTube, please make sure that you guys have registered, there is a form Google Form available on your portal. And that's where you submit your questions. I'm going to drop the link to the form here in the chat in sha Allah as well, so that you guys can click through and submit any questions if you haven't had a chance to do so already. If you submitted questions in the past, as long as they were on topic, as long as they were clear, concise and didn't have too much personal information they have been saved
for the night today. If you didn't, if you don't hear response date for them, just check back because we do have recordings for three previous sessions. And they may have been responded to already. On the odd occasion if the question keeps coming up again. And again, I might repeat a question or repeat a concept that we've already covered. But just to be mindful of everyone's time and to try to get through as much of them as possible. I try to make sure that we don't go through too many repeat questions. Yes, I mean, you're not gonna let me just like Metro Manila for you to us. And yes, please keep shift well, even your guys I know this has been a bit more of a difficult
or Milan for him. He had a surgery just before the month. So it's been challenging, so please keep him and his family in your doors, but specifically his health as well. And let me just drop this form link for you guys back here on Zoom once again, mashallah, we have had about 100 questions submitted since the last one, right. So we're gonna be busy, but I've been filtering through them. There are a lot that have been answered already. And again, if someone is willing to help out just to compile some of the questions and the answers that we already submitted, that would be super beneficial. I know some of you guys are amazing note takers, that would come in collection Shahla.
Of course, before we begin, I do want to thank the amazing folks that make these experiences possible. In the US, we have helping hands for relief in development in Canada, we have Islamic Relief. And in the UK, we have forgotten women, were doing essential work on the ground to support the most underprivileged and the most needy Muslims in our community. So communities worldwide, so please do support them generously. I'll drop the links in the chat and show when I get a second here. And on social media, you guys have the link in the description box inshallah. And of course, please do as you're going through the last 10 Nights, especially if you've been meaning to I know I
think there's this distance a statistic that like 80% of Muslims donate, or the 80% of donations come in for the last 10 Nights. So a lot of us want to want to get that extra measure, I can't blame you at all. But if you are, if you have been waiting to make your giving, during this time, please make sure that you do consider supporting on Maghrib as well so that we can continue this programming and so much of the essential work that we do throughout the year to support the community and make sure that we can kind of break barriers and improve the quality of our content, to hire more staff members to be able to make sure that leaving the students that we have got an
even more excellent experience and that we can educate insha Allah 1 million Muslims in the next 20 years so far in this past 20 We've done 215,000 students have taken our classes have benefited from our experiences have graduated have gone on to become community leaders and scholars and so much more. So please do be listened to make your contribution toward that thou inshallah that link is a blogger.org forward slash donate. I think the ship has been trying to come into this session. I saw him coming up I think I see you share a couple of times. Let's see Bismillah a Salam why leaving what happened the last year for lead? Hopefully you can hear me let me know if you can inshallah.
I cannot hear you. Can you hear me? Yeah, I can hear you. Yes. Yes. I cannot hear you at all. Okay, um, let's see. Why would that be? Okay, now I can hear you. Okay. And hamdulillah that's the easiest troubleshooting I've ever done.
Are you doing chef? How you doing today? I'm Hamdulillah. London. Good. hamdulillah la Monica Hamdulillah. Tonight is the beginning of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. This? I'm excited about it. hamdulillah you're not? There is a there is a narration that didn't A B cell OLALIA Salam sallam, when he was shown the
average lifespan of his ummah. And he found that it's a short, nobody so Salam said most people die in the 60s and 70s Nobody saw some of them was sad.
And the sadness of this is not because people live shorter period of time.
There's no sign
sadness over missing this dunya for the believers. For the believer this dunya means nothing, because it means nothing to us.
But the sadness was for the Prophet SAW Salem that he was worried that they don't live long enough to make good deeds that will make them earn high place in general.
So, Allah subhanho data, want to make it up for the prophets of Allah, Allah is on them. So he told him about so later.
So he wants to make the person happy for his own, and two, plus the sum. So that's why little powder is like more than 1000 months of living more. A lot of people said 1000 is actually more people say three years now it's more than eight years of really bad just been added to your life every year.
That's why some of the catalyzer he said, and whoever was in this letter to Ricardo, as if he lived centuries. I didn't think about that, that it added to your life this year. That's like some people are 1000s of years old, in their good deeds. And in this night,
I just want to say this before we start answering the question I was telling my community earlier and a lot of but if I give you 10 keys, and I tell you one of these keys will open this safe. And inside this safe, millions of dollars and gifts and stuff like that.
Hmm 10 keys look missing. This one looks nice, different colors, different shapes, let's try this one, I take the one that I pick, then I take the nine the rest and throw them in the trash in the ocean, or on the river.
Would that make any sense to anyone? Not at all, what you should do, you should try every key until you open.
And that's exactly what we'll cover all the 23rd of the 27th I'll do 25
Why you have all the keys with you try every one of them until I guarantee you. If you do all the 10 nights later condor is one of them.
So I hope that's something that start strong from tonight. Make sure that you commit it make sure that you're there. And may Allah subhanaw taala accept from all of us or deeds.
I mean, just like Monica shake hands, I was saying this is so blessed that we have this session right before the last two nights. I know for the Brits and the Singaporeans and so it a little bit into it. But alhamdulillah timing is perfect. So that we can make sure strongly, it's already the second night. So they they they might I I always tell people who call me and be so stressed about the world is going to come to an end tonight or today. It's the door it's already tomorrow in Australia.
We're not ready for your jokes.
That's actually a really powerful analogy. I think that we do a lot of complicated math sometimes as Muslims trying to figure out which night it is that the best odds that you have is to hit all time they'll accept all of your about that during I mean, I'll write checks. So we have questions on questions on questions. We have this we have to
like jump right into it. This lab isn't in there already. So let me jump back into the sheet. Once again, those who are attending questions are submitted via a private group Google q&a form that is linked in your portal. I'll drop it once again the chat in a second. Please make sure you're submitting them through there. We are not able to take questions from the chat. Otherwise, it gets way too hectic. And we want to honor those who did submitted questions earlier on time. So the form is right there at Bhisma. Now the first question that I have pending is bespoke where I lost my color. The first question is, I began fasting overseas in Pakistan on Thursday, March 23 2023.
However, I had to travel back to the US around score time on March 26, which was Sunday morning. So I did it fast that day and the following day, Monday, which is the 27th arrived in the US Monday afternoon around us our time how many fast will I have to make up for this year?
The days that you missed them travel?
Sure. So whatever days the tumor students are traveling, that's the days that you have to make
a pitch I think it's two days you say yes, he said he was traveling on Sunday and on Monday and didn't pass those two days. So he doesn't have to worry about time differences or this and that which tends to or what? Okay.
That makes it easy. The next person is the site next question is real Jerusalem curse the person who enters a blessing month of Ramadan and lets it pass by without gaining forgiveness. My question is, how do we know that we've been forgiven by ALLAH SubhanA wa sallam?
You didn't curse he said, madula distance a person with a mantra from Oban comes and his cause or her sin are not forgiven.
Um, we will not well know that on the day of judgment that are sent for Kevin and that year, but
the hadith is doesn't necessarily mean that all your sins forgiven, but at least that you receive some portion of forgiveness. Like somebody who doesn't receive any type of forgiveness, the person must be very bad
because fasting will cause forgiveness, praying will cause forgiveness little harder because forgiveness sadaqa cause forgiveness, liquor cross forgiveness, and so forth. So there are so many things do read the Quran cause forgiveness. So
that's absolutely I mean,
somehow you'll be forgiven. The competition is or the
invitation is to make sure that all your sins are forgiven.
That's a true winner. And that's happened by
doing your best and putting your effort and Maximizer
there is a sign of acceptance and forgiveness some of the signs that you feel that you're interested to do more
and you wonder the sign of good deeds been accepted that you are excited about the next good deeds to do
and has an Dakota Hassan good deeds lead to another good deeds
one of it is the hate of the sins
but you don't want to go back to it dislike it
one of it is to feel that you know, humility inside your heart and guilt that it does lead you to change the course of your life it's a sign of forgiveness because you became lights for sins make you heavy
and when you're forgiven you feel light you know when you have so much weight and you lose weight or you have weak muscles and you're strong muscles what happened exercise became easy running became easy walking through is
lifting weights became easier
because he lost that weight and again that muscles so the same thing that lost that sense that so heavy in your shoulder
so they've added became much easier whistle or sign forgiveness and acceptance
you know, the next question is is there's a gap on gold dental work I have two gold crowns gold was chosen as the better material due to my issue of clenching the teeth while sleeping
No Okay, the next question is what is the appropriate window of time to pray motive after Iftar most motive must either be offered right away after quick breaking of the fast or is it okay to eat plus 30 minutes then after then offer
there's no like is a cat on the desk because this is something you've been used like you're using it so
second question, can you repeat it?
It's what is the appropriate window of time to promotive after Iftar must be offered right away after quick breaking of the fast or can you eat properly for 30 minutes and then go off promoted?
If you're 30 minutes still, but time is until Asia but you try not to make it too late.
Is there a preference that you eat first and that you pray or
if you're hungry eat
you're not going to be able to focus in your Salah.
But also if you eat and you cannot focus It's all because you ate too much. That's also not good. So sometimes people would they do the eats drink soup and dates and some booths or whatever the beginning then after that people pray then you come to the full meal or you can eat the rice and the biryani and the macaroni and
the hummus and falafel and everything you want you know then after maybe 30 minutes you finish you pray
a lot it's you can do that that's fine.
The next question is can you pay as a golf buddy to help someone for paying their utilities and gas bills?
are poor and cannot offer that yes, you can give them the money to help them with paying stuff like that. Because that's something necessities of life. So if they cannot fulfill that that means are very poor.
The next person is as our next question is Should a breastfeeding woman trying to fast and save her milk production and body can handle it or is she not required to try?
I mean she tried that's won't be safe for her. She should trust
If it's not safe for the milk and not good for the mouth, she should not fast.
The next question is does using a humidifier with just water break the fast?
Yes, that's not allowed to use during the CF interest.
Okay, that's actually a good question. I didn't think of that. The next question is, a person does a sin he feels guilty and seeks fair repentance again and again and feel so bad about it. And a few days later, he commits it again and realizes his faults and is ashamed and seeks for repentance again, he is in continuous battle against his knifes, how can you stop themselves from the relapse of this and again,
first, disaster lawfare or recycle here for doing that. That's a sign of a man but a wiki man, but still this lot, this heart has a man and that's why they repent to Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala loves to see the person come back to him, no matter how many sins that you commit, don't ever give up on yourself. But you have to look at what caused the sin. Usually sent comes from associated with time. Like at certain time, I do the same. Maybe in the late in the night, maybe when I'm hungry, maybe when I am about to go sleep, maybe when I'm, you know, my period, maybe what I am, whatever that says, Okay.
And also the second thing, location,
what is the sin associated with certain places, you know, every time I go to this place, I ended up doing
every summon this like, in front of my laptop, I do. When I'm this place, I do this. So it's associated with a place
sometimes associated with
certain situation that you're in.
For example, friends,
when you run this kind of group of people, you do this, when your watch this, get this.
So in this case, you have to stop these areas where the synth comes from. And one of the A Baghdad, the act of worship, is to push back the ship on and every time he beats you, you know where he got you from.
And then you close that door
when he beat you again, and you close the other door, and so on.
so that's one other thing that you should work on it and figure out where is this coming from? What's the reason? The other area so that's protection, the other area is nutrition you have to need to be strong. And this is to increase your dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala all the time salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam always
gap, not so far but to add to the law protects you from it Allah give you strong demand.
Increase your Salah, increase your reading of the Quran, increase the amount of time that you spend with good people
and the master sha Allah was Python will protect you on such so
the next question as I had a major abdominal surgery in October then again in February at hamdulillah the first two weeks of Ramadan were manageable but as it goes on I'm feeling weaker and starting to experience discomfort slash pains when I spoke to my doctor she said that while medically I'm okay to ask if I'm up for it I will feel more pain slash pressure slash discomfort in my abdominal area while fasting and can expect these symptoms for another two to four months. Is it okay for me to fast or is this an example of me trying to be more religious than the religion that was spoken of in the last session?
No, you should fast and if you feel painful and you cannot fast because you need a painkiller it's really painful and you don't want to make that judgment.
I did an abdominal surgery myself
before on my mind, and you know sometimes I have very hard time this my first time actually experienced like sickness into my body.
guess what I learned a lot and managing too fast every day even my doctor was hesitant about that. Not trying to be super religious or anything like that but handler manager
if any day I feel like completely tired, I can't do it. I will break right? So does your call.
Law grantees shuffle and continue to get us
here's just a couple of days ago just a few days before Ramadan as well as how to look
The next question is when mentioning not all Shayateen are changed in Ramadan? You mentioned that one nights two or three that wetrooms is from shaitan I thought it was just a part of puberty does that mean that it's bad? Is there anything that can be done or should be done to prevent it?
What does that from purity wetrooms Okay
the process I'm going to share pan with dreams from the shaper which is a person see a sexual scenes that cause person to Jackie late. So that's that's what the word that's what the person referred to or ship and it also could be from anything as well any mainly from the shipper. And also person think about it a lot and the ship line can use that.
Especially for reaching puberty is too much testosterone for men and stuff like that can can lead
as part of the Sharpie, not all of them change in
Milan, I just want to tell you remind you what I said that some of the scholar tried to understand the Hadith and said maybe one of the meaning of the Hadith could be the Sharpie, not all of them are chain, but the leader of them because in another innovation model that Sheltie the leader of the Sheltie auction.
Now, I just want to mill accurate about how I was quoting, yes.
The next question Okay, well, this is a tricky one because their response we're referring to one of our previous topics covered in Ramadan 360. But we'll take this this one, someone is asking for the when gossip hurts lecture, and the Quran Surah 24, verse 32, it makes marriage an obligation for each one of us. If one does not dismiss the idea of getting marriage but married but does not actively look for a spouse that makes the offer and lets those who ask know that one is interested is that okay? This is done to avoid interacting with the opposite sex unnecessarily.
You need to read this again, slowly.
Sorry, I talked fast. Someone's asking. Does it basically does the Quran make marriage an obligation for us if someone is not actively looking but they're keeping themselves open? Is that is are they sinful for not trying to prioritize marriage and they're just trying to avoid interacting with the opposite sex necessarily.
marriage can be obligated marriage can be highly recommended marriage can be permissible marriage can be dislike marriage can be haram depends on the situation. So if a woman married to a man to marry another one, if a man would get married and his marriage will cause harm, let's say I have a contagious disease and then marry someone else and I'm gonna make that person sick I don't permit to marry that person.
Okay, and that sickness can harm them. That's not a lot somebody have a bad manners, but it's not recommended from Tumeric or tumeric.
So in this case is not allowed as dislike because there are bad manners and they will harm the person
he or she permissible a person who marry a one on one and marry second one a man for example permissible around
the football have also been commended. That's the default rules that it's highly recommended for everybody to get married and encouraged to get married and then we saw Solomon Goodman ever Mr. Wood said if I have only one night left and this life is done I will not meet Allah as a single person
I'll make sure that I'm married and me tell us what the lives marry person not a single
and it is wajib for the person to watch the person cannot control their desires
kind of controlled lives they fall into Hara in this case managers wider upon them if they have the means obviously they don't have the means it's the ultimate California they're not It's not obligated obligated or recommended because they don't have money they don't have nobody proposed to me a sister said nobody proposed it's not my fault. I'm gonna put like an ad and
you know and go reckless
people do that there's a brother who put an ad somewhere that paper is in the UK people are that mashallah
yeah I saw an ad somebody was like he said I'm a farmer. And I'm looking for a woman with a character just to help him farm
Yeah, but anyway going back to the to the subject, so just in your situation, it just any are recommended for you to do
Next question is
if you die in pair would you go to Jenna?
What come in if you pass away in prayer and prayer Oh, you got to join that's a good sign. Good sign of a good ending. But there's a logic rule signs do not necessitate they don't necessarily
sign do not necessarily
or do not necessitate what they all sign for.
What that means
if what's the sign that it was raining outside now
give me a sign perhaps
sorry a sign that what? That's not enough it was it was it was raining outside. Okay
give me a sign that it wasn't raining
Oh, there you go soccer got it before the ground is what?
The ground is what? That's right. Like if you go outside and you see the ground is what is that necessitates that it was raining
now don't cheat and look at the answer some
have some way meaning actually looking at the answers and where are the answers? I'm looking at the q&a Yes
No, they're not they're not they don't necessitate what they are for so Stein's or sign Yes, that's wet. It's a sign that was raining cloudy it was but it doesn't necessarily mean that it was raining. So yes, it's a sign for good ending for the current agenda but does not necessarily mean that they are or might have depress the dye in the prayer but you know what, they might not being fulfill the rights towards the relatives or they took somebody's money or they were a good businessman or like who knows you know, so there's other things as well they will be held accountable but it's a good sign we hope for them which I love to go to jail
perfect Yes. The question is when praying with their behind an imam is it necessary to say I mean after each die that he makes or is it sufficient to say it just once at the end?
Every time you say I mean it exactly as if you said that
and we've been asked to repeat the draft so saying it after every time it is the right thing to do
it's not haram but that is the most the best way to do it you can do once in the end it's up to you but it's better to do I mean because remember when the visa Salam when Gibreel said distance the one who hear your name and don't give Sol Sol sol la he said me and he said distance the one who was there every day and make sure I said I mean same thing when the last two verses and sort of Bacara reverse every time there is the degrees that I'm in the process of me for it.
The next question is if I give sadaqa on behalf of others will I still retain any reward? Yes, absolutely. You basically give it on behalf of you and others
so every time you give sadaqa I should take it as a rule anything has to do with money donations money
or equal to money like food and stuff like that and integrating it you can join whoever you want shall lie you can join a holiday you can say some behalf of me and whoever you want 100,200 all over the world
as a subtle little request their smart move Michelle
the next the next question is Can Shefali please explain how one should make the extra regard after a mom does the three records of with her if one is planning to pray more at home for example do we pray the additional Rika after during this lien with the EMA yeah yeah after you finish with the Imam and you go home and you feel like I want to pray again my another winter you can stand up just one
then you pray to the new prayer another one
what's what Mr. Wood did and other Sahaba
I'm sorry, actually good point on the previous questions. Yes. So Minella was saying laying or attention is when giving zakat is it gotten stuck are different right can you layer your attention? Yeah, yeah, yeah, your intention was to guide I'm talking about general donation ons like Catholic. I mean, if you want to give us a cut on my behalf You're welcome. I will let you know how much is also allowed but that's that's a different that's not shedding intention.
just in case
I was gonna go but I'm not a FIFA mentioned as well so if I buy something and a food sale for example for charity Do I still get the reward if I give sadaqa? Is that type of context? Is it giving you something governing? Law? Yes. Perfect. The next question is, can one pray Thy on allele and Juliet the other when a woman is on her period to get the rewards of the last 10 Nights?
But how should you do that? When she is in her period? She cannot pray but she can she can stand out and make her app and decode and read Quran
and maybe prepare so for people on the message and send that to the Minister. All these are great the good deeds give charity sadaqa in that night
okay, so all the something that that was what have you worked, you've worked tremendously.
And also, you get the reward of clearly late because you're excused not to cry.
Sounds good. And Ziva is asking, can she prostrate and make die in that state as well?
I mean, yeah, there's a fit up between the scholars about can you make the institute like outside somebody just makes it do it and you make that but does it debate about the permissibility of this?
Many of scholars allowed but many also does not not. And I lean towards the opinions not because it's never reported in the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah lies and even though I understand it was done by so many scholars, so many, Holy mackerel, I will not say to be Tao or anything like that i because of the amount of people that reported that they did that.
But I would say at least it's not from the Sunnah of the Prophet. Some of the best way if you want to make is just to raise your hand like this. And you pray.
The next question is, if it's already prayer time, and my menstruation starts, but I hadn't prayed. Do I have to make up that prayer after the demonstration?
I'll stop that. There's a second part of the question. Okay. That is to opinion among the scholars or three opinions among the scholars in regard to this.
So let's say Lord came, okay. And three, two minutes after the hurricane, the time started, you got your period, what you should do. The first opinion said you pray Well, after you finish your career. The second opinion there is nothing obligatory on you. You can because salata board has not watched it yet. They said it became what you have to pray about when if your period game how long it takes you to pray one raka
one minute, like 22nd period, okay, the last 30 seconds and the day, the last second and the third time between the whole analysis how not to stick around for like two minutes. You see that end of the time, the end of the time. If your period came there and you did not pray yet, like you planning to pray in the last minute because he said that's last period of time. That's when solidaridad became obligatory in your before the officer and you get your period the time that you have to pray but I mean nobody really liked that. So according to this opinion there is no prayer on you because thought about blood why to get
this third opinion that you have to pray the harasser when you finish
because the whole and also consider this as one time and that's an opinion among the hundreds
and if you do that in a matter of between Northern Asia have to pray
and the strongest opinion or allow it to me is that there is no salon you
Perfect just animal care. That was an informative question and answers.
The next question is, how do you pray God Campbell the last 10 Nights What time do you pray? How many records do you pray? What is the etiquette of gamma?
Anytime in the night, doesn't matter, beginning middle and the end? All of the above some of the beginning some of the middle some of the night. I knew pray to rockauto rockauto rockauto like I knew and did one
and that's that doesn't matter what's the number and maybe some did not pray more than 11 but he did not forbade other people or to pray more than he said some sort of solid lead method and the prayer in the night too and he kept it open still alive.
The next question is if I am to give say $100 And again, is it better to give to just one person or to give $10 or $20 to several people?
You know, it's better to make people sufficient. I mean, $10 not gonna do anything
to give somebody $100 not gonna make anything. Give them what can make them sufficient. So they can pay the rent, they can take care of their bills, they can cover school expenses, stuff like
can almost either ARPA Avenue or no more Gibbs he makes people rich so they don't come back again for solar.
It's much better to help swamp person stayed on his feet and his family so he never asked for food again. You ask for money again.
Then to keep him coming back coming back coming back coming back
the next question is as a housewife when I'm cooking and taking care of my family in and out of Ramadan, can I get the reward of feeding people like in the Hadith when we are told to spread this alarm and feed people and pray where others are sleeping? So when others are sleeping? I feel bad that due to my lack of stamina, I can't do many extra things in Ramadan other than fasting reading work or on my normal and a small amount of the waffle Latisha
what a sister from
I don't know if I have a location for her. I thought she was in Houston I got us I sent some to
sister I want to tell you if you have the intention for that, yes, you get the same reward and more because you're doing this for your family. I don't know if you saw some even the food that you put in your spouse, your wives mouth is a subtle
so there is no doubt that this is a great deal to make them food and to take care of them. I heard one of them a chef recently I don't agree with his statement but just to show you shout out almost like you're saying it's even better than crying
and reward I don't agree with saying better but at least you'll see some scholar even considered me because it's one of the great deeds take care of your family
now looks up from but any with this been said tried to make extra point and donated try to pray a little bit so don't leave Yeah, I need the other act of worship as well.
The next question is can we say the DA Allahumma inna CAFO entitled half of Afghani after the Hajj the Dasha that before that this theme and fights Allah
Yeah, after the show and before Salam is the best time to make dua and masala
there is two times the best two times on salatu wa Institute and after Tisha that's why newbies are upset after increase your prayers pray to Allah subhanaw taala so much encouraged us to do that. So rewarding so make sure that you do that and you say loving Rafa one in all the time and Riku and sujood into shareholder after shareholder after Salah while you're walking getting into the car long run that won't put off off on a new start from awesome
So there the President asked about photos a lot someone's asking in the chat could we do it in our own language to the before the scene? The dry Yes, you can do any anything.
Perfect. The next question is does it all fit or needs to be given in food rather than money? If yes, how can I fulfill if I can't provide food directly
exposed to give it in that form but also you can give the what is equal to it.
Just fine to give it towards is equal to so if it is like $15 you can give the foot beer and that's the position of so many scholars like Yanni not only we're heading but also Bahama honey Valhalla also highly Rahim Allah cypionate 30 or more on Abdulaziz and when he any great imams in Islam, they said the same thing because
because the point here is to make the four player happy and sufficient.
So you can do that
give them also food
that they can take like you can give them for example
yeah, there's many ways you can you can people can get the rice and still people appreciate something like that. To be given to them. Some people get gift cards
to Sam's Club or to like some of these store departments or go buy your own
stuff like that. Beautiful. The question. The next question is, is the reward for sitting and making vicar after fajr till sunrise in the masjid the same for woman at home? Can we move to the so far do we have to be sitting in the place of prayer?
The facility of the area of the prayer
And as long as you stay in the current obasan that's the point to be staying in liquor and making the current double sunrise in America him Allah has asked for that applied to a woman and sick people at home. He said yes.
Thanks. Question is
if I pay my cigar throughout the year, and I overpay during Ramadan, just in case there have been any changes? Is this okay?
Yes, giving more sha Allah will be a form of solder Pong shirt.
Perfect. The next question is what is the best way to achieve the reward of live the other if you are working or have some other commitments that you can't postpone during the last 10 nights and you can't stay awake during the whole night. You don't have to stay the online.
You don't have to you just do the taraweeh and the beginning of the day people working we will have exam tomorrow in the beginning of the night. And you may be you wake up a little bit before so hold on, make some do and liquor as it takes you getting your Soho gift set up by charity. And in this regard, I want to say that helps I can put the link, we have a program where every night, it's automated, that you can donate to unlock every night, like you're just study, put the amount that you want, and it will basically charge you
let's say you want to put up 500 Every night or 100 Every night or 1000 Every night, whatever you want to put $10 overnight, and it will take $10 Every night from your underdogs every night. And a model hamdulillah one of the organization that not just because I am I'm part of it. So I know what it is.
And I know it's a nonprofit organization, I don't get percentage, I don't get paid for saying that. But what I get, I'll tell you reward later
on manga was sadaqa jariya as a continuous charity.
And it continues charity is much better than any like,
like many other areas silica gel, because this is about knowledge and distributing knowledge. So and that knowledge continue and grow. So I learned this, I share this and I share that and share that. So can you imagine whoever going to another of identical model, get the ADGER of everything that I'm teaching right now.
And my other colleagues as well.
Whatever goodness that we bring, as a team helps on our older brothers and sisters work with their mom, you are part of that here. So definitely I will highly recommend everybody to get on our oven to be part of that sort of a journey. And there's many, many areas as well make sure that you support your local mistake your local community, your family members, but there's one thing that you can do every night and
last night. I'm about to do that. Now last night, I like social media.
But I mean, I dropped the regular donation link Allah mcrib.org For slash donate the daily link is not ready just yet. We're just changing it a little bit, but inshallah I will share that later with you guys on telegram does that Kamala Harris? Yeah, for that reminder as well. For us the next question, I will I will share it just just cutting holes.
Okay. I think I think they're just changing something or they're just changing the link right now at least that's what they have just been informed.
Should I think be like, Oh, no, I see you.
All right. And while the chef pulls that up, just a quick reminder, I know, there's a couple more questions that came through in the chat, please do submit your questions to the q&a forum. Um, that way we can make sure it's saved. And then if we don't already, I guess, sorry. Yeah, go ahead. Sorry. Continue. I would just say though, please make sure you submit them before you get them to the next session if we don't get to this one. But I have one question. I'll take sorry. I, I sent you a link in your WhatsApp. Okay. Oh, exactly. Like I share. Thank you so much.
This may be updated a little bit later. But right now it's active and Hamdulillah. So I'll share that in the chat. And I'll share the updated link as well. This is for you guys to be able to automate your giving so that if you want to catch it in the last 10 nights, and you're worried that you might forget certain that you can pick the amount pick the you can actually even pick the number of people that you want to give for it. So if you have five family members, and you want to do $5 for each person in your household, then you can do that as well and hamdulillah and that's there the feeling less.org forward slash GD forward slash obligor. And for those ones, socials, hopefully you
caught that as well. We'll drop that in the chat. The next question as well.
Bismillah is when listening to her and forge slash classes via air pods. Are we allowed to go to the bathroom for example to wash my child or to help them in the bathroom? I don't want to miss the live class even for a few minutes.
Yes, as long as you don't take us to the toilet
if they're held
Think though the child washed up in the toilet, would that be applicable?
I think they have the thing. They can keep it like an a speaker outside to listen to it while they're helping the kids. It's a few seconds but like not what are you going to delete your solvents. You can put it outside to listen to it. But don't take a dance like some of the LM out when they used to go to the bathroom, they let the students read from outside the bathroom while they are in the bath. Because they don't have time.
So there's like, you can do that. But if it's Quran, I will avoid it. But if it's classes and stuff like that, that's okay.
That's good advice. The next question, or you can take your air pods out too, you could just pop them out while you're thing and then pop them right back in that way you don't have to stress about it. The next is we have refugees in our area, is it better to devise a guide to them rather than I just I just like the US to have like, I have a respect for variable knowledge. So just there's like, there's also another meaning behind that I wouldn't do that, like, just hold on to a few seconds and finish whatever you want to do. And after that you go back to
the next question is we have refugees in our area, is it better to give my Zika to them rather than other large organizations.
all good. You don't have to choose this or that you can divide your thing. But if you have like locally, local refugees who are very, very cheap, they have rights more than anyone who lives far away. But not every refugees can categorize as poor or miskeen, or deserves a cat, just make sure that some of these refugees martial law, they do well for themselves to start the business and stuff like that. So just double check. Not just refugees, not a category, the category is cool, and the scheme and so forth.
The next question is, can we recite the sorts of sorts of art when the Imam recites out loud or should we just listen to it?
You should behind the Imam you should read it with the email. And that'd be sort of like Salim said, Are you reading with me? They said yes. He said don't read while I'm reading except sort of track.
So the only time you can read sort of the behind the process or any other sort of Allah.
Yes. Next question is Kenza Gabby used to sponsor the Iftar? And a question?
Okay. The next question is, Sorry, chef. I'm trying to get through as many as I can. So we're just going to speed round it. Next is can one paisa get on money one is owed but yes, but he's yet to receive. How about instances when the whole money is not paid back in full? How does one calculate this guy on it?
For Cara him almost said, if the money that
basically, you have learned to people, so you owe them the money. If that person is rich, and you know, 100%, you will pay your back, you give us a captain, but I'm not.
Okay. And if you doubt or I'm not sure, I don't know how things can go, there is no zakat until you received it. And when you receive it, it gives a cut of it right away, like 2.5%.
so these are the two famous opinion, I lean more towards the second one.
Unless that is 100%, like, you know, that this is guaranteed to be paid back.
Like it's a bank or paying you back, it's an organization or like something that you know, you're gonna get paid back.
You know, it's like a big insecurity. It's not like an individual or like somebody with a good brother. I'm not sure because even this good brother can things happen to him and slowly when you wait until you receive it in this case, and you pay this guy.
The next one, I think I started this question, but maybe it finished it let me know if it's a repeat shift. The question is, what is the best way to achieve rewarded live the weather if you're working or have some other commitments that you can't postpone during the last 10 nights and you can't stay awake during the entire night? Yeah, and so that's what
we're clarifying. The next question is, oh, I'm losing my blue. Someone's asking I have purchased some essential oils in bulk to get a better price primarily it is for personal use and gifting. However, if someone needs it, I sell it to them for my cost price and do not make any profit rather I intend by that to do a good deed so that they get a better price because I bought it in bulk Dwight, I was like get on this inventory caught on.
So what she does with the inventory?
I think so she keeps
Don't buy a lot so that she can have it on hand for like a lower price. But if someone else wants it, or they want to, they want to purchase it, she gives it to them for selling, right? Like for how much you paid for it, basically, so they get a better price. Okay, so it is for sale. So you sell it whenever there is like offer or someone interested. So in this case, you see this inventory, how much it worth in the day if your circuit.
If it's worth $100,000, it gives a katana. So basically see how much it's worth. And you see that amount you added to the other money that you have? And the total picture it is the new saga on this card you give? Basically 2.5%
Okay, but just so it's mixed, because she she's got it for personal use as well. And if someone requests it, then she gives it to them. Is that does that make it confusing? Or is it still a personal use does not count, I'm talking about the one that you're offering for sale. So let's say you're offering for sale, but using it until somebody buys it still for sale. Okay, and my advice to do to decide exactly the person or persons for sale for sale?
The next question this was asked and addressed in the chat as well as iClicker. To those who have been attending these sessions I can tell who have been helping out those who are asking your questions to here and there in the chat. If the question has been answered, I'm just to clarify though, for the person who did ask if I'm fasting while traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast, then can I break my fast when I reached there? Or should I wait until West Coast mountain of time?
No, you break your fast when the sun goes down, no matter where you are.
So when the sun goes down, you're breaker. So if you're on the West Coast and you travel to get used to call stuff means you 75 So you're gonna make a floor much earlier than most of us. When the sun goes down, you'll make your
beautiful that's an easy response that makes it easy to clear. The next question is do I have to pay the gas each year on the same time? Can I send money to a different country early so that it can be distributed on that exact date? And what if I forget the day that I went below miss up? Can I send the same exact day if I went below Nisar, but I don't remember
no you have to decide on a day for your circuit so you can organize yourself so we can know what exact because the stocks can be different from one day to another from one week to another you can just play every week is different. Now this is like why job when you so the day of your account has to be decided
some have on 20th or 21st I have to go 21st And look how much this gold worth because gold goes up and down how much this stocks worth how much this merchandise worth that day.
So that's how you have to be very clear about when is yours a Cat Day is because that's where the day you're gonna decide how much it is okay, and you can give this a cut early if you want that's fine you know you can give us a cut part was a cattle oil circuit earlier that's why you can say hey, I'm giving this like $10,000 now because there's an urgent need and Pakistan for example in Turkey or in Syria, refugees and stuff like that. And I keep in mind that I gave her a 10,000 So on the the Dave Meltzer got come and calculate my cigar my cigars 15,000 Okay, so that's 5000 left
and so forth.
The next question is, if a woman makes Bosal sometimes sometime during the day in the daytime of Ramadan, does she fast for the rest of the day?
She finished her period, she finished her period.
Take the shower. Yes, she has she cannot eat until the end of the day.
Okay, so the so she's she's a very advanced midway through the day, and she's already missed her so her time she's still faster. Doesn't doesn't count as fast but she should not eat or drink out. Because now she is. She's not in her period. And she isn't Ramadan out of the respect for the time she cannot eat.
But if she has her period, she can eat and drink whatever she has no period. No, she stopped. But that doesn't count as a day.
Okay, perfect. Love is Sammy has mentioned the question you've asked the chat has been answered. The next question is
so there's a lot of off topic questions. I'm trying to figure out. Because now.
Yeah, I mean, that's fine. Yeah. Okay. All right. So if you allow it then because I have about like, I think 94 Off topic questions so far. So perfect. The next question is,
actually this one can be relevant what someone's asking one of my friends is divorced, but she needs to talk in text with her ex husband regarding kids issues almost every day. She's worried if your fasting will get canceled for time.
Talking or texting with her ex husband while she you
know, as long as the text messaging and the Talking is appropriate talk.
Yes. The next question is, what are different ways of giving that way and a nonpublic way. I feel like it's harder to get that way if you don't have some type of platform.
I mean, Dow is everywhere you give out your parents, to your children to your spouse, Dow it means you invite people to do something good.
So, and a shout out to him, Allah said that you can do Dow talk. They said, How is it through your actions and manners and your conduct? You know, so Dawa also can be through supporting somebody giving down?
You know what, I don't know, I'm not very accurate. But you know, what I can sponsor a class and a lot of Institute. I kind of sponsor our online class. I can sponsor Shifo leads next class in England. Okay, I can sponsorship for this class and Minnesota. How much lead cost model? I'll pay for it. Yeah, no, or Ammar. Okay, are shuffling and handling, stuff like that.
That's our that's giving down, but not necessarily directly.
And if you want directly you can. Today social media is, you know, just say nice things on some of these platforms, if you'd like to tell some likes,
and so forth. So Hamdulillah, there was a lot of means and ways to give Dawa to 1000s not only to non Muslims, but to everybody. Yes. You know what, it's yes, I know, it sounds like you're joking. But actually Subhanallah I remember, just recently, we had a class in Australia and somebody put to go towards like money towards getting everybody 50% off the class. And they're like, I'll pay 50% off of every ticket that someone purchases. So that's like, there's very tangible ways that you can make Dena knowledge accessible to people, even just with a mother, we have upcoming a new scholarship system, that's going to be I think, you know, about, you know, 50% for everyone who's in
need with our reverts single mother.
And that's something that's been in demand, because we noticed those were the categories, we had so many 1000s of people requesting scholarships in those categories. So people who donate toward this fun or towards someone group.org/donate. That's where it goes directly into. So yeah, you're giving that why? Because you're making knowledge easy for people and you're changing people's lives through that.
So I know I teased you sometimes, because your your plugs are ticking
through in Tubingen. The next question that anything and with this because we are just at the hour. And this is a heavier question, but I'm glad that someone asked it is what is the cure for despair? As we get older and we've experienced more setbacks in life, how do we continue to ask Allah for blessings or to answer the eyes with the same conviction and charity that we had when we were younger?
I mean, the McMann the older he gets the sweetest, the sweeter and, and more good to come. And not ministers like palm tree. You know what's the sweetest palm tree the oldest one young ones not sweet does not produce sweet dates. And the products are solid said the man is like the contrary. The older it gets, the better it gets.
out last part, Allah loves those who get old and grow gray hair in Islam. And those people also Tala promised and goodness, protections and the word and just being committed for years to be a Muslim and hold on to Islam for for 50 years, 60 years since 70 years, it's different than someone holding on to Islam for the last 20 years of their life.
You know, it's it's much harder when you get older and that is things like not easy, you know, still you're holding into your teeth. Almost SatoLA loves you proud of you. How can you be in despair when you know that Allah subhanaw taala serves all children of Adam,
if you come with sins,
as much as the size of the Earth, as much as the weight of the Earth.
Since that if you put the record if you come with sense, the record of it, like from the heaven from the earth, all the way to the sky to the Hara. Remember the record of your bad deeds that much? That heavy,
huge in that size. The whole bar that will boom in your left sides of this
but Allah says from Mala Payton era to Shrek Michelle
when you meet me while he don't associate anyone with me you don't worship other in didn't pray for other than me
luck lucky to have your karate hammer Shara
I will meet you with equal to that amount of sense for girls
how can you be disparate with a God like that
how can you be dispersed with a God who sank to you if you walk to me our run to you
how can you be disparate with a God who telling you for Intel dunya metal lyrata so that I will if you can the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon you will not count and He continue to bless you will continue to give you
how can you be despair from a god? You know, for God's sake, I was so happy. I just did a fundraising for
an organization that they do a phenomenal job in Pakistan. They in Pakistan that is about just going off tentacles of it.
It's much schooling, providing school call citizen foundation.
the way the prison made a gift, it was so well organized and like the gift bag and like it has like my name and like a little bit of watch and stuff like that. So like, thoughtfully, you know? So
wow, this is so nice. You know somebody that they have given me a gift and give a gift to my daughter or something like that. So while he thinking my daughter, and somebody could have gift and give me something for my cat or my daughter's cat, I was like wow, it's because even my cat is thinking about my car.
So it makes you feel so special. That's right. That's right. Somebody think about it to that much to make you feel so special. I'm sure some of you guys experienced all of that.
Do you know what Allah says in the Quran?
Allah tells us
that He made the Earth and he made the whole universe and made the heavens and wind and these gardens and this beautiful trees beautiful rivers I think as travel in the world or just google how beautiful this earth is and all these beautiful islands and all this Tina why Allah created and all this for you.
Not only he said, Mata at the club, so you enjoy it.
Not only you and also your cattles and your animals and even his spoiling you and your animals
isn't that this is this type of God that you despair
from so it's the God that give us hope and
this type of God that who is every night open his doors to welcome you.
I've got that he's not waiting for you to be brought up to him. He comes down every night,
to welcome you
it's just a type of card that you
you know lose hope and
if you truly know Allah, you will be so happy.
Sofia answered. I will never choose my parents over Allah to be my dad.
Because they know Allah is more merciful than my parents. His parents were not mean it loved him to death.
But in the visa Salam said Allah has more mercy towards you and this woman towards her infants
whole hold into your trust and loss power to
hold on to your Eman
and expect nothing but goodness from him.
Do your best and leave the rest for the most part our
sisters and brothers of Allah it wasn't just the hope that we have
and the trust in Allah subhanaw taala generosity and mercy and forgiveness that I have in my heart I have an odd heart towards Allah subhanaw taala
will not make it
it is that would give us so make us so strong.
We know how much is Tiana
forgiving, appreciative thankful kind, nice, gentle merciful
and the Most Merciful manner well here's kind of what
I'm just gonna show it off. So this nursing and accept from all of us our good deeds and help us in this last 10 nights and less Hafsa and all the brothers and sisters who work and volunteer for a motive Allah
number one, I mean just like a law fair shift that was such a beautiful, beautiful end to the sessions of Hanalei just like looking for that reassurance and I think getting this in that mindset Subhanallah of gratitude and, and thankfulness right before the last 10 Nights again kickoff or are continuing and shuttler for many of us, may Allah accept from you, is there anything that you want to leave us with Inshallah, before we close off, I know we've covered so much at Hamline this session we're about to open up another Ramadan 360 session in about 20 minutes any last reminders for us to just keep in mind for the last 10 days? I just did I just looking forward to see you guys

Insha Allah to Allah is low I think it was around when I had the lack of it to get through shift. I won't do too much talking now because I know you guys have about 20 minutes before we jump on to the next session. So inshallah see then that was shaped believe this uni art president. I'm under Institute Marshall, he teaches a lot of essential courses that I know there was a lot of topics, questions that were asked on divorce on marriage, on partners on on raising children and all that kind of stuff that I didn't even get a chance to ask because I didn't get into all the off topic ones as much. But if you do have important questions that you want to have addressed, sometimes this
platform our goal is to get as many quantity covered as as unhelpful as quickly as we can during these essential and these blessed days. But I highly encourage you guys continue to journey learning from him. He teaches classes on all these topics in depth and hamdulillah and I hope that you guys get a chance to benefit throughout the year. In short, we'll see you guys in 20 minutes for Ramadan. 360 day number 20 in earnest does equal care to everyone who has been participating and all those who asked us amazing questions and we will have another fun one night next Tuesday the final one of Ramadan, same time same place inshallah was even right now take care As salam o aleikum wa
