handler of galantamine sallahu wa salam gotta kind of you know, Muhammad Pilate early was a heavier salam to Sleeman Kathira to my bad when I welcome you all again to see which we study to the book of environmental Kodama mo louder and after 700 Cassadine. Today we're going to be discussing in sha Allah with Allah the inner secrets of fasting. So we talked about salah, we talked about the QA, and now we're going to talk about fasting. Now it's very appropriate for us to talk about fasting because as we come closer to the wintertime, as you can see, my robe right now was mashallah 715 720. I mean, if you guys remember last month, it was eight something and now it's seven 720. So

00:00:36--> 00:00:41

should we shall soon as it's going to be even way earlier than that. It is the best time to start practicing. This

00:00:43--> 00:01:10

is a learning algorithm. This is the cool Yanni called Treasure. So Allah subhanaw has given you a long night and a short day, short data fast, long night to of course to pray. So what are the inner secrets of faster when you start preparing yourself for fasting Mondays and Thursday and by the way, Mr. Morris 30 Just to let you know, those would like to fast tomorrow is Thursday. So what are the inner secrets of this? rabada let's see what remember Kodama Rahim Allah Allah says Now

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

Mr. Levin salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam.

00:01:16--> 00:02:00

The author Imam, Imam Kodama Hakim, Allah says, Know that in the fast cell is a special quality that is not found in anything else. And that is its close connection to Allah such that he says fasting is for me and I reward for it. This alone is sufficient to show the high standard of fasting, Nam hamdulillah brahmanas ala Nabina Muhammad Javad Imam Bill Kodama Rahim Allah Tala brilliantly he chose to begin this chapter with the Hadith that really gives us yam and fasting there are very special exclusive quality and characteristics of all the Avada in which he says over here that Siyam fasting has a very unique quality no other Eva no other act of worship shares that would with

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

fasting and what is that? These are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Hadith codici which is

00:02:06--> 00:02:46

the product was reporting the Bukhari and Muslim that the prophets Allah Sam says Kulu Kulu Amma Libnah Adam Allahu Allah salam for in the holy war Anna at Zb, in which the Prophet Salah Sam is saying Kulu amla, Adam, everything that sort of Adam does is for himself. Except for song for in the holy war Ana at z v it is for me, and I alone will give the reward for that. Now we know that Allah subhanaw taala is the one has already given good also the reward for Salah and for Zakah. So what makes now fasting so special? I want to hear from you guys. What do you think the meaning of this word when Allah subhanaw taala says you do everything. But CRM particularly is exclusively for me

00:02:46--> 00:03:07

and I shall reward you for it. So what could that word mean? When Allah subhanaw said that CRM is exclusively for me, and I should reward you for it? What do you think that Allah they have different opinion? But let me hear from you. What do you what could you get out of the statement here? Forgiveness, but Allah also forgives me the first of all the salah ammonia megado, between the Salawat as well you get forgiveness. There's something special here

00:03:14--> 00:03:50

this is one of the this is actually the first opinion they say the first meaning for the Hadith they say is that the prophets Allah Subhana Allah subhana saying here that everything else you do, everything else you do must involve Ria. So when you pray, someone can see you when you read Quran someone can hear you when you do this common cancer right? When you write a check to them as a raise your hands and fungi and people see you, but when you fast, you probably spend the whole day after day after day after day and no one even recognize that you're fasting because it's a very secretive Ibadah not just that when you're when you're doing Salah in the masjid, you might prolong it. When

00:03:50--> 00:04:24

you pray by yourself you might cut it short, right? But when you're fasting whether publicly or secretly, you're not going to take short corners you don't cut short corners of a why because you know that fasting is fast I'm going to do this for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala ask children they will tell you about that because particularly kids when they are alone, and they make wudu and a water drop of water you know slips down their throat what do they do they try to choke themselves to get it out and they feel guilty and they come to you know break my fast is that until they feel comfortable. And subhanAllah can tell the kids who fasted the whole day from those who didn't fast

00:04:24--> 00:04:46

the whole day at the breakfast time. Those are breaking their fast for real. You can see the smile and the joy in their in their face Subhanallah but those who cannot cheat a little bit you can tell the feeling guilty that I like overdoing it a little bit. So they say that a bad song has no again has no idea anything that says that's the first opinion what else could we learn from this hadith? What could it be?

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

Yes, sir again.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

So always in the Presence of Allah. Well, the total

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

To kind of like mention a little bit different they said fasting they said it's one of the most favorite Ibadat that you bring yourself closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala through it like it's as if it's just for me, it's exclusively for me and I love this rebounder from you. So I want that, which is we get that from medicine the visceral Arsalan Khan,

00:05:19--> 00:06:02

about the breath, the smell that comes out from the breath at first in person, Allah subhanaw taala says this is actually more more dear to Allah azza wa jal than the smell of the mask. This is how much Allah subhana value your sacrifice for the food and drink when you first see that specialist, honey make it very exclusive. The third meaning they say that Allah Subhan when he says or Anna at Zb, he's not even talking about how much reward you will get. Like for his account sadaqa when you give one $1 How much you get 110 times 100 700 And Allah subhanaw multiplies more. But there are a specific number for it. When you pray and Gemma in comparison to pray, individually, there's 26 to

00:06:02--> 00:06:47

27 degrees reward higher. When you read Quran for every lecture there is Hasina, right so everything is measured. But when it comes to fasting, there is no measurement for that. Because you can't put a price tag on so much sacrifice that happens in one single day. That's why Allah Subhana Allah says, and I will reward you for this. So that's why fasting is unique and very exclusive. If you can think of just this hadith as an inner secret to value fasting will be sufficient. But what else do we know about fasting in terms of the value of fasting Now, similarly, the house cargo is highly dignified due to its close connection to him, as occurs in his statement and sort of touch with it. What he

00:06:47--> 00:07:30

means by that this is from a dramatic point of view, in Arabic when you want to give exclusively to the something, you ask, ascribe that to yourself, right? Like say, my car, my house. So when I say my house and Allah says what are her Beatty and sanctify my house that was of Allah azza wa jal. So that's obviously ALLAH SubhanA exclusively honoring this house, only one house on earth that Allah subhanaw taala calls my house different, it has a shot of an honor, obviously. So out of all the AI that when Allah says this is for me, that's obviously being above everything else. So when you fast, you will know the fast in one single day has one of those high high rewards and high of course

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

status among all the other Ibaadat

00:07:34--> 00:07:48

indeed, the fast is only virtuous due to two significant reasons. The first is a secret sale and an interaction on Burton. Therefore, no one from the creation is able to see it therefore showing off

00:07:50--> 00:08:05

cannot enter into it. So that's one of the meanings like we said earlier, they mentioned that there is no real and it because when you do it, you do it secretly and the whole day will pass us by no one would notice or unless what unless you you know claim that you are like they say there was

00:08:06--> 00:08:31

a group of students of knowledge or making some liquor together and discussing some masa olive oil. So a Bedouin comes by sees him start sitting there talking so he came near the minister's praying. And as he was praying, it was kind of like doing sure mashallah, like you can tell he's so focused on the signs of Ebola. So the guys are among themselves. So look at this brother, Mashallah. He's doing so well under the coup and reconstitute. And the guy was praying he said, I'm fasting too.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

So he couldn't help and

00:08:35--> 00:08:56

he couldn't have a better one has a bad day. And so if you're fasting how anyone would know that you are unless of course you disclose that secret to them, not. The second it's seduce the enemy of Allah. For one's desires, sure, what are the means will see the he resorts to and who is the enemy of Allah is talking about Okay.

00:08:58--> 00:09:02

He said the car which means this is basically car means subdues you know that the enemy of Allah, Who is that?

00:09:05--> 00:09:43

The enemy of Allah, and he said that any of Allah, he's using your desires against you. So how we can control that, let's go ahead, and they only become strong through eating and drinking, as long as the ground of desires is fertile. Devils keep coming to the pasture. But once desires are abandoned, their pathways become narrow. There are many narrations about fasting which indicates its excellence, and they are well known. Of course, he's referring to the previous statement when he talks about how that fasting would narrow the pathways for the shaitan he's referring to hydrogen Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the messenger of Allah received his wife,

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

Sofia or the Alana during the last night of Ramadan, she can kind of talk into her husband or the laws or the law Anna. As she was done, she escorted her out of the masala and as she was standing with him, still talking to Rasulullah Salallahu salam to young men from the answer

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

They were passing by, they see the Prophet saw some in a distance or they could hear His voice and they see him standing with the shadow the female shadow. So kind of they felt awkward and they kind of turn around to the other side so the professor suddenly finally goes Tada come over, over, over and come back. So they can, so the Prophet says and tells them in the house Sofia, this is Sofia, which means what does my wife so the Sahaba they were shocked and surprised like foliage Subhan Allah Allah so Allah Subhana Allah like, we will never suspect we are so Allah. But the prophet Sessoms said no, no. In the shaytaan he remember the other Majora dem shaitan is clever. And we were

00:10:33--> 00:10:59

running in the veins. He just be running all over just like running in the bloodstream. So when we fast what do we do? You have less water in your bloodstream. You listen to tissue in your bloodstream. So your energy is low, and the desire to do something haram or wrong becomes less and less there is no incentive for that. And even if that sin is talking or saying something wrong or watching something wrong, you will have that inner reminder that come on you first.

00:11:01--> 00:11:40

So you kind of like I know you're fasting at least right? But Subhanallah fasting indeed does the scar to the shaytaan to the enemy of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said for those who are for the young people for this call, Mr. Shabbat Minnesota has a lot of letters or words. If anyone of you can get married 100 They should do that. But if you could not say what did he do, he was sewn, let them fast and now the hijab because they're going to be like a shield. So fasting can be a shield, protecting you from the Chapin and protecting you also from your own whims and desires. Now, section one, the Recommended Practices connected with fasting

00:11:40--> 00:12:20

it is recommended to eat the pre Dawn meal so who and delaying to be in taking it are preferable as well as hastening to break that you fatter the fast and doing so with dates. So from the Sunnah, says now speaking about some of the etiquettes of fasting, like why is it important for us to in a spiritual context, you're talking about fasting? Why is it so important to remember this is adequate, because it brings you closer to the practice of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And if you think about the prophets of Allah Salam, and you think in everything you do, has to do with the Prophet sauce. And in practice, that in itself is a spiritual element in it. Like remember, when you

00:12:20--> 00:12:53

write when you tried to put your shirt, for example, you wear your shirt, and you put your left let's say arm first and then remember, not as soon as the foot at your right arm first. So you go on, you pull your left arm, and then you put your first or your right arm first. Why is that? Because that's how the professor was telling us to do it. You come out from the masjid and you come out with what you come up with your with your right foot first. And you remember no, I should actually living with my left foot first live in the right foot back. So what do you do? You go back one step. And you swap and you do that, when you always do these things. Who's on your mind when you

00:12:53--> 00:13:28

do that as your mind? The messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam and why you're doing this for to please Allah azza wa jal, that in itself is different. And if you're in a constant state of dhikr of ALLAH SubhanA water and your daily practice, you can imagine how much spirituality you gain out of it. So here when he says look, you When you fast, it's always recommended that you have so hello. Yeah, but I'm gonna hungry I don't like to. It's a whole. It's not about liking it. It's about getting the baraka out of it. And so doesn't have to be a big meal. Something that is a little it's such as just a sip of water, for the sake of taking the baraka and following the example of

00:13:28--> 00:13:42

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so that's one thing he says coldwater Pharaoh who, like it's recommended that you you have some role and you delay it as late as possible, how late candidate it used to hold as late as the break of dawn,

00:13:43--> 00:14:19

which means any moment before the actual break of dawn can be a moment for her and the later the better. I know an hour that's what they do, they do what they call it psyche right inside, which means creating a buffer between the time when you break when you start your fast and the actual time for Fudger so that at least you started hamdulillah in a safe zone, but frequent hours, and honestly from the Sunnah of the Prophet saw some there is no need for that. There is no need for that you can still eat until you hear the Adhan or at least the time Fajr begins. So he says Make it as late as possible. That's the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called What a agilone photo. And

00:14:19--> 00:14:27

part of the Sunnah is that you rush and break in your fast. I know some people they keep holding their date waiting for them to finish.

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


00:14:29--> 00:14:33

And Allah said the modern finish and that said that how do you guarantee January now?

00:14:34--> 00:15:00

If you hear the other hand, this is it. You break your fast. The moment the moment when the Maghreb starts, that's it. Okay. Some people might be actually outdoors so there is no add on to here. So now they look at the sun. The son disappeared, and they feel hesitant to break their fast because they're not sure I didn't hear that. Do you have to hear him again to break your fast? No. If the TAM for Maghreb started then you

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

breaking fast railway and why did we do that for because that was the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the purpose of fasting is what is your man? Is it to torture you?

00:15:11--> 00:15:45

Is it to torture and endure you know hardships of abstaining from food and no the purpose of it is to please to please Allah subhana wa Tada and Allah is pleased with you when you break her fast as quick as possible. So I will follow that example and we will do that so that's what he's trying to teach us over here Rahim Allah Allah kala lifter Allah Tamar, if you can break her fast with dates Alhamdulillah if you don't have dates, then a sip of water if not anything, just breaking your fast as quick as possible. What if I hear that um, I don't have a date with me. So I'm running around looking for data tomorrow. So if you have water we'll

00:15:46--> 00:16:27

just break your fast as quick as possible so you can get the reward for inshallah do it on time now. It is recommended to practice generosity during Ramadan, as well as doing good deeds and increasing in charity so that this is indeed in accordance with the way of the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam once again, he'll bring us back to what we're doing this to follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu and it was it was being generous is also sunnah. And Ramadan is also sunnah, says doing good deeds and increasing and doing good deeds is also sunnah for the fast. The cattle to sadaqa charity being charitable is also sunnah. All of this follow the example the Prophet sallallahu

00:16:27--> 00:17:04

Sallam in which the Hadith says cannot sell Allah azza wa jal, the nurse he was always generous to the law said they'll generous of the Most Generous of all people. What can I do for them? I couldn't fit Ramadan and he is more generous in Ramadan when Gibreel comes to study the Quran so when you practice these things, who's on your mind the example of the prophets of Allah and so on? Why are you doing that for to please Allah subhanho wa Taala that is a form of liquor that is a form of liquor now, one is also encouraged to study the Quran and performing it if the retreat during Ramadan, especially the last 10 nights during these nights you should strive more than usual. It

00:17:04--> 00:17:15

occurs in the two Sundays that Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu said when the 10 would come the prophet would tighten his waist forever. He's spent the night in worship and wake his family up for prayer.

00:17:16--> 00:17:48

So the Prophet the Hadith, which is actually bringing as evidence for you mentioned earlier, that it's always recommended in the last time right of Ramadan particular to increase your Ebola because now call us that's the end of Ramadan. So those days once they're gone, they're gone. And there's a special newsletter cutter that you need to catch and these last night of Ramadan and he said the Prophet saw some use to increase his brother and evidence for this hadith I showed the Allah Tirana and say hi and when the last time they begin, the Prophet saw Sam he would tie basically his den is though his waist, the loincloth around his waist, and then he would he would

00:17:49--> 00:17:58

prepare himself for extra rebar. What does that mean when it says he tightened his waist wrapper or the izhar? What does that exactly mean? He mentioned he two means of that, what are these means? Now?

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

The scholars have mentioned two views concerning the meaning of tighten his waist. Tremper is the first it means the turning away

00:18:08--> 00:18:50

from women. So this is basically the what you call the the literal meaning of it. Like literally he just kind of ties his loincloth. So he's not going to be approaching his spouses. And then the other meaning. The second isn't it is an expression denoting his solo Lauren. So eagerness, jet and diligence touched me in doing good deeds. It touched me in the Arabic language, basically, when you roll your sleeves up, that's called tissue when you grab your toe from the bottom to raise it up. So you can actually move your legs as you run or you walk or you do something. There's also something called dish meat as well too. So therefore, that's an expression of being serious and start putting

00:18:50--> 00:19:26

extra effort in it. So the meaning of his head is one of two things, whether literally the prophets of Allah, Selim abstains from sexual pleasure during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, or the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is actually he just puts his effort and more Obeida and more, obviously is doing it Kevin msgid. He's not going to be intimated dispositive in those those nights. But is it haram if someone becomes intimate with their spouse and the last and that's of Ramadan? The answer is no. Is it even haram to be intimate with your spouse in the nights of Ramadan? The first one two nights of Ramadan Ramadan? The answer is no. it's permissible. But what is haram is actually to do that

00:19:26--> 00:19:32

between federal time all the way until Margarita during the day unless a person is traveling or have an excuse. Now.

00:19:33--> 00:20:00

The scholars also say that the reason for his solo Laura Saddam's exertion in the last 10 days of Ramadan was due to his sort of Laureles seeking of the Night of Power later to follow which you always are committed for our Salah Salah to hahaha all of this is going to keep Luke searching for that night make sure that you catch that night in the last five nights and the last seven nights and the last three nights. You always can encourage us to Allah Salah to catch the light later.

00:20:00--> 00:20:27

powder, which makes the meaning of Attica if the meaning to Kevin the last night is what is your ma? Is it just to spend some good time in the masjid? Or is it to run away from your spouse a lot of the meaning of spending the last minutes of Ramadan should be one to try to dedicate your time exclusively for the night. So we're a little colder. So what is more virtuous in terms of the last 10 nights of Ramadan? Is it the rebar of the day or the bed of the night?

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

No doubt a part of the night. So you dedicate the rebar the mostly during the night and you take some rest during the day now.

00:20:35--> 00:20:53

Section two, exposition of the inner secrets of fasting and its characteristics. There are three levels morality of fasting, the general fast some of the arm, the first of the select few, some of the horses and the fast of the lead among the select few. So for suits, all horses.

00:20:54--> 00:21:32

So let's first of all talk about this. These are Morata. So this is the expression from a mammal has added Rahmatullah Denali when he categorizes which is maybe we'll put them I just adapted in the book here. So it says there is someone who like this is the some the fast thing of hey, the transition said the general fast, right. But actually here, it means the fast of the of the lemon. That's what it means the fast thing of the lemon, and then the second one car was almost faasos, this will be the fast of the elite. And then some hosel hustles. This is basically the Gani the best of the best.

00:21:34--> 00:21:55

So these are the elite of the elite, what would you call them, call them, Allahu Allah, like, we have the best of the best. Because when people fast, they all do the same thing. They abstain from these things from fajr time all the way until Maghreb time. However, when it comes to the benefit from this fast, people are different levels.

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

Some, their benefit is the benefit of the layman.

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

And some, they have the benefit of the elite, they get beyond what the lemons do when they fast, and some other they want a way beyond even those who are actually in it. So let's see what are the meanings of these three categories or three levels of fasting. Now, as for the general fast Soma long, then it involves refraining from satisfying the appetite of the stomach button, and the appetite of the private parts Forge, which means, again, I want to emphasize that the meaning of Salman or moon delay means fast, that's what it means not judgmental, fast as the lemon fast. The layman's fancy goes is just abstain from the eating, drinking and sexual activity on the day of

00:22:36--> 00:22:37


00:22:38--> 00:22:57

We all are equal in this right? Even the adults and the young, they also practice the same thing to men, women, educated uneducated, everybody, they do that if they want to fast, proper fast, they want to have a valid fast, that's what they do. So they abstain from eating from drinking from any sexual activities from the from future time, all the way until

00:22:58--> 00:23:05

a matter of time. So that's the layman's first, but then the second category, the first of the select few, so

00:23:07--> 00:23:48

then it is refraining from one's gaze, cuff, another tongue listen hands yet, feet, Rachel, hearing some and eyes muscle as well as the rest of his body burns Jawara. So what he means by that, because those are the select few. It's not just about you know, abstaining from eating and drinking. That's the easy part of it. But when they first what do they do? They watch what they look at what they hear what they practice, what their hand, they find they do all these things. So they worry about their actions, beyond the abstinence. Beyond abstinence, what are they going to do during their fast? That's very important for them. As for now for the hosel, who sues the elitist of the elitist?

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

What do they do?

00:23:50--> 00:23:56

As for the faster the lead among the select few some will solve the puzzles is the fasting of the heart soul

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

from worldly aims, human and thoughts of

00:24:02--> 00:24:42

which distance one away from Allah, as well as it's the hearts refraining from all things that Allah has pleased on the same level, that explanations of this fasting will be mentioned elsewhere ahead. Now. So what he says away Look, when it comes to the best type of fasting is the fasting of what is the heart. It goes back again to the origin of discussion we had earlier when we talked about how important the heart is to the body. So the heart is like the king as you might even call him Rahim Allah, Allah says, and the body is just like the soldiers, whatever the king orders the soldiers will follow. So it's extremely important that when you fast you don't just fast from these basic

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

things. You fast with your heart as well too, so that your mind is never thinking of anything bad, and your heart never desires anything alone. So you always purify your heart and your actions as well. Yes, we're going to be speaking more about this as we move forward into the book. Inshallah Hoda Baraka with

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

out. Now, among the characteristics of the specific fast is lowering the gaze good ol buzzer, safeguards his tongue have risen from the repulsive speech that is forbidden, disliked, or which has no benefit, as well as controlling the rest of his body parts. We explained that already. So basically the first of those elite or the select few, they go beyond just abstinence from eating and drinking. So they watch what they see and what they do now, before he narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah or the Allahu anhu, that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam said, Whoever does not abstain from false speech and acting in accordance with it. The know that Allah is in no

00:25:39--> 00:25:50

need of Him abandoning his food or drink I just saw inside of Makati in which the Prophet SAW was him say look, if you're going to fast but you're not going to be stopped lying and backbiting and do this and this why fasting anyway?

00:25:51--> 00:26:30

Like why bother fasting or your fasting is not is not complete unless you complete it also with the good o'clock and the manners of those who fast but does it break the faster if someone fast and they lie someone fast and they back bite, somebody does not break their fast. It doesn't break their fast but definitely definitely injures in that fast and definitely the reward and the quality of it is really compromised. So protect your fast not just from abstain from eating and drinking but also from behaving and acting now. Another characteristic of the specific fast is that one does not overfill himself with food during the night. Instead he eats into measure for indeed the son of Adam

00:26:30--> 00:27:09

does not fill a vessel more evil than his stomach. Now, if you were to eat his filled during the first part of the night, he would not make good use of himself for the remainder of the night. Similarly, if he eats to his fill for school, he will not benefit till the approach of noon. This is because excessive eating causes laziness, Castile and lethargy for two. Therefore the objective fasting disappears due to one's excessiveness and eating for what is intended by the fast is that one savers the taste of the hunger jerk and becomes an abandoned error of desires. Remember Dharmaraj mo Lada is speaking about the obvious for us over because look, if you're going to be

00:27:09--> 00:27:32

fasting, make it worth it. What's the point of fasting where you distract yourself from eating too much. So whether it's for two or four Soho, you need to minimize the amount of food that you consume. But a fasting in Ramadan if in Ramadan, you're going to eat the exact same amount if not even more than what you do in some other days of the year. Because some people actually they gain weight and I'm gonna demo just so that you know

00:27:34--> 00:27:44

some people literally they gain weight and he I had some sisters come up to me complaining their husbands they refuse. They refuse to eat for her anything but a fresh cooked meal.

00:27:45--> 00:28:20

I wouldn't do a fresh clean water talk about where to go they have to have an actual freshly cooked meal. Like a full me like we usually have dinner during the regular days. They wouldn't have this first to her. Otherwise they cannot function throughout the day. So just Well I tried that one time I tried honestly eating even oatmeal just oatmeal for the whole for the whole day I felt there was a break in my stomach. I couldn't function. And that's exactly what am I will put down what I was talking about over here that if you eat too much, sometimes you can't function throughout the day. And if you eat too much at photo for the third time because of Hamlet has the end of the day right

00:28:20--> 00:28:46

now it's Halloween to eat right now. You're gonna eat too much you can function on the night you can do Tarawa you can do the hedges you can do anything. He said the purpose of fasting, as you can see, is to avoid falling into lethargy here and being and castle and laziness. So avoid that by teaching yourself the purpose of fasting is literally to try to savor the meaning of hunger and also sharing that same concern with those who are poor.

00:28:48--> 00:29:20

So you share with the needy by feeling hungry Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah at least for us. So Gemma, there is a hot meal waiting for us in at the end of the day and Hambledon for them some people their first day or night, literally like cola we met some people. And some of these trips Hanalei in which they were it was so shocking, that some people they say haven't eaten in two days or three days, like you give them so this is a hammer. This is the first meal I have in two days. And for you just that's an extra an extra meal you had in your hand.

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

Like we couldn't even eat it.

00:29:23--> 00:29:44

And that's something that you should really consider thinking about specific when it comes to the subject of fasting. Michelle, I know that Ramadan has especially on festivity to it so hopefully Inshallah, as we come closer to the vanilla, we're going to talk more about this subject when the Nonito barakaatuh. We're going to start period inshallah and next week and show we're going to talk about cm Autoworks, Yamato and Schelotto next week

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

So the first one is going to be

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

to have these two points on until you move to the shop

00:30:17--> 00:30:22

so we have 15 Shala right now those who like to follow us for the book number 15

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

lo Salatu was Salam o Allah so we'll get in

00:31:25--> 00:31:29

His Word so Allah already was salam. Let whoever has

00:31:30--> 00:31:32

read the translation, first of all, right from the beginning.

00:31:35--> 00:32:16

Or the Aloma narrated that the messenger the loss of a bar and he was adamant said, let whoever has Eman and Allah and the Last Day, speak well or remain silent. Let whoever has Eman and Allah and the Last Day generate generously honor his neighbor. Let whoever has Iman and Allah and the Last Day generously honor his guest and Bill quality 6018 and Muslim NASA. So this hadith as you can see, there are three statements that the Prophet SAW Allah Salam, as mentioned in here, and at the beginning of each statement European the same, the same thing, the same example. What are you saying? So Allah says, Karl mankind, middle Billahi while EO mill after that whoever has Iman and

00:32:16--> 00:33:04

Allah on the last day, and then he gave us three things. Number one, failure called higher on our list. Let them speak well or remain silent. Number two, honor your your neighbor. Number three, be generous or honor your guests. So three things, speak well or remain silent. Honor your neighbor, and also honor be hospitable to your guests, three things, Prabakaran Muslim. The first thing we need to mention here about this hadith has the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned these three lines in one Hadith, or is that a collection from the RWA that the prophet has mentioned them at different occasions. But then Abu Huraira de la TerraNova he volunteered to bring them all in one

00:33:04--> 00:33:40

statement in one region. That is sometimes actually an issue dispute among the ALMA like wonder wonder Sahaba they report the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam do they usually report the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam verbatim it means letter by letter or the other sometimes you know speak what they understood from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that's the spirit among Allah man but they all agree that it's okay if you speak with it with the meaning of the words of the prophets of Allah Salah including this example of a so some they say this hadith was actually mentioned and separate occasions. Like one time the Prophet SAW Allah Salah and he says mankind will

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

lie William will occur footlocker and Ollie Osman.

00:33:44--> 00:34:21

Some other time he was seen I was heard saying Salah Salem, mockery of Allah wa Yamanaka, falou, Karim Jarrah, and then the other one value kumbaya let him another guest. So the Prophet says in a different occasion, he mentioned that, but the Sahaba again, they volunteered, since the Prophet says I mentioned the same thing three times. He mentioned them in one Hadith, or they loved animada for Allahu Allah, if this was mentioned one session word from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, or that the Sahaba they kind of collected that in one single Hadith. But the Hadith itself honestly, I wish I can cover the entire Hadith in one session, but we're going to have to divide it actually at least

00:34:21--> 00:34:56

two sessions, because the subject is extremely important. And I was trying to select different paragraphs to read for the importance of the subject matter of this hadith, but Subhanallah almost everything that was mentioned is agreement very powerful. So today inshallah tonight when the last video we're going to focus mainly on the first part of it, which is basically failure confined only as we speak well or actually or remain silent. But prior to this, when it says mankind or you may know Billa he will Yeoman aka What do you guys notice on this one here when Allah said when the prophets I said, let whoever has a man in Allah and the Last Day

00:35:01--> 00:35:12

One of the conditions that you man, right, so it's been again, bring in two of the articles of faith, right? One is the belief in Allah and the other one is believing what? The day of judgment Allah Yamanaka. But why these two things?

00:35:20--> 00:35:34

These are the two essentials of faith, the two most important centuries of faith actually. Because if you take the development, the prophets and the angels out of the subject of faith, what matters to people the most?

00:35:36--> 00:35:47

What matters to people the most is this creation, has a master to it or not. This is come out of North nothing or desert are created for this. And then what is the purpose of this life?

00:35:48--> 00:36:26

What are we going to do after this? Is it a life after this or not? The two most important questions people they ask about heat even in America, right? Even for us if you're a strip to random people right now. And you speak to some atheists, whatever that is, what are the most common argument that you have with them? Is there a God or not? And then second is what was after this life is that this is the life that you live or is there is another life that you'd have after that? So these are some of the basic essential faith matters that matters to the people which is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam brilliantly he keeps using them in his words. Also, they are mentioned the Quran, Allah span

00:36:26--> 00:36:52

many out in the Quran, he keeps saying within an avenue below Julio Malacca. So the prophets or some speaks about also the same thing to believe in Allah and the final day, because that's now for you as an incentive. Yes, I believe in a creator. And I'm going to meet him on that day. So whatever I'm going to do, I'm going to get the reward for it. That is the essential message you get from the statement. And the fact that it was repeated three times,

00:36:53--> 00:37:07

three times and this hadith means what is your ma, very, very important. These matters are extremely, extremely important. If you truly believe in Allah azza wa jal, and there'll be a final day, then do these things. So let's see what he says about them now.

00:37:10--> 00:37:16

The two of them narrated this hadith by many routes from Abu hood A lot of the lower let's go let's go to his words.

00:37:17--> 00:37:56

His Words of Allah RNA will send them let whoever has Eman and Allah and the Last Day do such and such and such shows that these characteristics of Eman and we have previously that actions are compromised under Eman. The prophets before we get this the point, this is actually his refer to all we talked about before if you remember when we discussed Hadith Gibreel as well, that alignment that will fill in man. And we talked about, you know our actions that are also part of the Eman as well too. Because when the Prophet says and says Whoever believes in Allah and the final day, let them do this, let them do this. Let them do this. What does that exactly mean? You can't have a man without

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


00:37:57--> 00:38:32

And those are some of the actions of an imam. They don't seem to be difficult, and they don't seem to be very any demanding. You've been asked to be kind to the neighbor, and to be generous to the guests which is something you we do to do regardless whether people believe or not hospitality, the guest is there all the time. And having a good neighborhood was also the same thing too. But here there is a religious emphasis on it. From Allah subhana wa Tada and from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning these actions are from the actions of the believers. So if you are a true believer means make sure that you care for your neighbors, you care for your for your guests, and

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

also make sure to watch what you say now.

00:38:36--> 00:39:11

The prophets of Allah already was salam explain Iman as steadfastness sola, and liberal generosity, no. And there was a hadith we mentioned it we came across this hadith earlier in the discussions before, as the Prophet saw something describing an email with actions because a man the essence of a man has what is actually being patient. Patience, which means because you have to believe in things that sometimes you can't rationalize, like the angels, for example, couldn't see them. But you believe it that requires a lot of support from you. And also some aha generosity, because you believe you're going to give and you're going to be tolerant. So that's the essence of being a

00:39:11--> 00:39:16

believer and being woman and all these things are obviously their actions now.

00:39:17--> 00:39:32

And it hasn't said, what is meant is, is being steadfast and not performing acts of disobedience, and being liberally generous with performing acts of obedience, not the actions of iman are sometimes connected to right due to Allah,

00:39:33--> 00:40:00

such as discharge, just discharge of the military duties and abandoning things that are which are forbidden. And a part of that is speaking well in being silent rather than saying anything else than that which is good. So now Imam Raja Rahim Allah Allah is saying look when it comes to actions of Eman, they relate to one of two things whether you do things you owe to Allah subhana wa Tala, we call this Rockcliffe Allah azza wa jal hope Allah you

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

owe them to Allah subhanho wa Taala they come in the form of what I don't want to call them haram, that you do that which is obligatory such as praying 555 times a day. And I've said it from the Haram, he says, and among the Haku that you owe to Allah subhana wa Tada, what do you owe Allah azza wa jal in regards to this hadith, that when you speak you speak good otherwise you stay is the silent from saying something wrong? Because this is the O to Allah subhanho wa Taala so that's how cocola then He now speaks about recovery about the rights of the people what are they called, sometimes they're connected to to rights due to slaves, such as honoring guests and honoring

00:40:38--> 00:41:01

neighbors and restraining oneself from causing them any harm. So these are three things which the movement is commanded to do. So but they're saying here is that we're measuring the Hadith over here. One of them is related to how Coco Allah subhanahu wata Allah and to correlate to the heart of the IVR. The one that you owe to Allah azza wa jal is to speak good or remain silent.

00:41:03--> 00:41:13

Whether it's good or three minutes or so has nothing to do with the people. So if someone comes your friend, for example, come and cyst on you to speak for them. And they want you to live for them.

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

You wanted to live for them? Do you owe your friend, this hub to speak for them? You guys owe it to them. As your man

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

one of your friends asked you to write this on his resume. And it's not right.

00:41:30--> 00:41:35

I have seven years experience and you know in it work it means while playing video games.

00:41:36--> 00:42:00

Right? Would you say yeah, seven years of experience you put them right there is that hack that you owe to your friend to write it, they're just not because the hub that you owe to ALLAH SubhanA waters to be truthful and say that we'll just write and stay away from that which is wrong and say, of course not saying that which is wrong. Then the two other Heho that you owe to the people it says what being generous to your neighbors, and to your guests now.

00:42:01--> 00:42:09

So these are the three things which the movement is commanded to do. One of which is speaking well and being silent, rather than saying anything else that would then that which is good.

00:42:11--> 00:42:15

Debate, Ronnie who narrated it a sweat in a slum

00:42:17--> 00:43:00

Almohad Ruby and Mojave and Mojave that he said, as a messenger of Allah advised me, he said, Do you have control of your tongue? I said, What do I do? What do I control? If I do not have control of my tongue? He said, Do you have control over your hand? I said, What do I do if I do not have control over my hand? He said that only say with your tongue that which is well recognized virtue and only stretch out your hand towards good purposes. How does that happen? It's basically acceptable height in terms of narration, but what I want to bring to your attention right now for the next I would say page full page almost an imam Mr. Raja Rahim, Allah Tala. He chose to bring as many generations as

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

possible to signify the importance of speaking well, and remain sound from speaking then. This is how much he was passionate about explaining this matter. He was so passionate that he just could not find any height he could think of. But he put it there because he wants to teach us watch your tongues watch your tongues Watch your tongue because this example right now this hadith, he says call a man cave, the prophet Claudio salah, also, you know, that is speaking about myself as an experience and as an Imam, you go around different places, sometimes people come to South Asia, you know, I want to I want your advice on something or can you advise me on this matter I can advise in

00:43:39--> 00:43:55

this manner. So everybody expects you for example, to give the machine an essay or give them Allah a lengthy advice. But he the same thing a man come to the Prophet Cara Salah Asani, please advise me what was expected from the prophets of Allah salah, a manifesto for the Prophet Sessom says, Can you control your tongue?

00:43:56--> 00:44:15

And the man says anything else besides that? He was about your hand, can you control your hand? says anything else there was no law besides that, like he says, like, I don't know, I don't think I can throw my tongue God's control my hand. The professor said, Well, my advice for you is when you speak, speak well, and when you do something with your hand has to be something good.

00:44:17--> 00:44:36

So, the professor's did not give him an excuse. Because this man was trying to give himself an excuse like I have short tempered jasola It runs in the family right like many people keep saying no, it does it only runs in your head. So therefore, you need to make sure that you control what you say. And what you do. Now.

00:44:40--> 00:44:53

It has been narrated that a straight tongue is one of the characteristics of character for character characteristics of iman as in the last note from us before we get the English translation straight Tango Do you guys understand from it?

00:44:57--> 00:44:58

What am I straight that means Yanni.

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

palate translator. Because the Arabic language the Arabic word is the karma to listen. Anyone the tongue is an upright Jonnie tongue, which means it's actually it's not being straight, as much as being any good. And control that's what it means. So I'm not sure if the words straight tongue is the right translation for this karma to listen. Like if you're if your tongue is on an upright Yanni way of path, that doesn't say anything there but which is which is right and doesn't say anything wrong. That's what the meaning of the statement, so you can translate that whichever you want, you want to understand. So again, he goes into the karma to the Sami casal Eman. So it's one of the

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

characteristics of Mr. Na.

00:45:41--> 00:46:15

As in as in the mercenaries from Anasazi, Allah and that the prophets of Allah already he was at him said, as slaves. Eman will not be straight until his heart is straight. And his heart will not be straight until his tongue is straight. So I hope that the word strength is exactly what it is in the Arabic texts, which means to be an upright Yeah, and that's what it means exactly. By the way, just quickly the word Muslim. Do you know what they mean by the word Muslim here? He says this hadith was reported in a Muslim from Anna Swaziland. What is the Muslim there was a Muhammad Rahim Allah is a collection of a hadith that is authored by Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah Allah in Which Imam ama

00:46:15--> 00:46:34

declassified the Hadith based on the name of the service and the and and the narrator's not based on the theme of the Hadith itself now, like he's a Muslim, Aisha all the edited version one chapter For example, most of the Abdullah and Ibis oh that is when I bust in one chapter. And then he classifies them more than actually that chapter now. Gone.

00:46:35--> 00:47:14

Ronnie narrated a Hadith from an is that the prophets of Allah already he was said and said, a slave will not reach the reality of iman until he protects against his tongue. Divani narrated a hadith of mine in general, that the prophets of Allah already he was said and said, you will continue to be saved as long as you are silent when you talk it will either be written for you or against you. So this is the same Hadith mod by the way, which was report on different narrations, the very famous Hadith when the Prophet SAW Allah Sam spoke about it and he said, Karla rasool Allah, O ma, ma, ma, Nicole, are we going to be taken accountable for the words we say? And the professors are surprised

00:47:14--> 00:47:50

that someone like Mark would even ask you would miss this point? God I think that como que Ahmad, like, Well, do you mind like you? You didn't know that? While your kupuna scenario Allah mana thermocol Allahu Illa, Hassan docility, what throws people on Jehanne agenda on their faces in Jannah, more than the harvest of their tongues. This is the worst thing. People that take it lightly Subhan Allah and Allah brothers and sisters in our time is the time to observe this more than any other time before. Because in the past, when people they speak, the echo chamber is extremely, extremely small,

00:47:52--> 00:48:10

extremely small is a small group, they are just within that valley, in that small house in that small village. That's it, it doesn't go further than where they are geographically speaking. But nowadays, the word that you utter the word that you type, the word that you share, what is it goes

00:48:12--> 00:48:29

it goes all over the world everywhere and affects people that you don't even know I didn't even know about. You go on you post something online or you comment on something on share a video share something here and there and so on and thinking what all what you did was one

00:48:30--> 00:48:55

click. That was it. It just clicked. You don't know that that click would cost people their Iman and their Hassan and their Deen they fall into Shubha they start taking doubts in their hearts. They starts Pamela backbiting people and talk about other people in a bad manners and so on. So, all these things happen because we did not watch what we said what we do.

00:48:57--> 00:49:40

It's extremely important our time because Allah the dangers are so many. And I always wonder how on earth on the Day of Judgment, someone comes as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described they are man catchy bell to hammer. Someone comes with good deeds, the size of the mountains of the hammer, the mountain range that comes from Mecca, all the way to Yemen. If you ever drove in that direction, you see, you know what I'm talking about? A huge massive mountain range. All of these Amel min salata and Matsuyama. Masada, US you pray you fast you give charity. How come someone like this when Allah Subhana Allah multiplies their reward hundreds and 1000s of times in comparison to

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

one see per you know, per bad deed. How come someone come with all these these and then they end up in Jannah because the professors themselves call out to do an AMA and moonless. Do you know who the bankrupt is? Said the bankrupt is the one who has no money no go no ceremony goes that's easy. That that will be easy bankruptcy.

00:50:00--> 00:50:13

Because but the real bankruptcy is when you come on a day of judgment with the good deeds of fasting and salah, and the car and the size of the mountain of the hammer. But then you came alive liabilities attached to them.

00:50:14--> 00:50:21

You curse this person. And you said that word to this person and you heard this person, that person and everybody started taking, you know, from your house and

00:50:23--> 00:50:25

all these mountains are gone. Why is that?

00:50:26--> 00:51:05

Because people are snatching from them. And I was wondering will lie many, many times in this hadith until, of course, our age and our time makes it easy to comprehend that. And in the past, how could this possibly be? How many bad deeds you've done? That will make all your amazing good deeds will just vanish and disappear? Not just that when you don't even have enough to give? What are they going to happen to, you're going to take from their say, throne, yours. And until this person, Audible is doomed. I never understood this. How could this possibly be today is our time is the time for this. Because with one click with one word with one share, you will affect 1000s and even

00:51:05--> 00:51:25

millions of people around the world, they all will be affected because of you. And because of your share because of yours because of your VG because of the Sundancer people you would never even meet in your life, people would never even know that it exists on earth, but they're still affected by your good you're wrong little Thumpstar and as a result, on a day of judgment

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

everyone will take it from you

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

a lot of good deeds will be disappearing.

00:51:31--> 00:51:41

So we need to make sure that we watch what we say and what we do in this time as well Allah it is extremely dangerous our time is the time when we just watch what we say and what we do

00:51:42--> 00:51:46

today the whole the whole you know spotlight is very

00:51:48--> 00:51:58

popular in our time everybody wants to be in the spotlight but I hope for the good reason so don't be among those people unfortunate will be on the spotlight for the wrong reason and the dunya and in the after kingdom

00:52:00--> 00:52:01

in the listener of

00:52:02--> 00:52:12

theirs from Abdullah ibn mo even as that the prophets of Allah already you would have already listened and said whoever is silent is saved law. Okay, what does that mean?

00:52:14--> 00:52:16

You're not going to be saved talking.

00:52:17--> 00:52:19

You will be saved to be you know, being going silent.

00:52:21--> 00:52:42

And being silent is not going to hurt you. But speaking for every word is going to count and let's see what he's gonna say after that go ahead. In the two second ebooks there is that there is a Boolean or the law and narrated that the prophets of Allah are to use it and said, a man speaks a word about which he is not clear as to what it contains, and by which he slips into the fire,

00:52:43--> 00:53:00

to a distance which is further than it contains, and which which is further than that, which is between the East and the West lie this is a very scary hadith of some Billa Allah It's so scary. When Allah on the Prophet sallallahu Emma says that a person will speak a word

00:53:01--> 00:53:40

without scrutinizing it without thinking twice. And he gets very dangerous as to how much impact that would have on others on people and so on. Just throw it out there just for the sake of just saying he says this could cause the person to use it up. If not, it will just slip into the fire of health. The cost of it is just dangerous. It might not be in this dunya but in the ACA it was unjustly said Subhan Allah done, oh, the villa slip into Jana. This could be between you and your spouse, you and your children, you and your community members and friends and coworkers. Watch what you say Gemma, watch what you say.

00:53:43--> 00:54:08

And utterly narrated a hadith about who they are they align that the prophets of Allah already was an unsaid. A man speaks a word in which he sees no harm for which he falls for 70 autumns years in the fire. Subhanallah when the professor says cervena Hurry voters administer Ma Long time. God knows how long this person is going to be falling over the land to jahannam even without reaching the bottom yet

00:54:09--> 00:54:52

70 years falling you could say 100 years falling into the villa Johanna and without reaching the bottom. Can you imagine how scary that is? You guys sometimes in your sleep you imagine yourself falling from somewhere right? And it's scary enough just for the split second before you wake up.

Eman Tirmidhi narrated that. Sorry, the next one. In sahih al Bukhari there is the Abu Dhabi alone narrated that the prophets of Allah where it was said on set, a man speaks a word which earns the good pleasure of Allah and to which he gives no thought and by which Allah raises them up in degrees, and asleep speaks a word which earns the Wrath of Allah and to which he gives no thought and by which he falls in jahannam. Now, it was Paula this is actually contained in Annex Hadith as well. Imam Muhammad narrated a hadith of Sinema and saw him on the line from his mother that she said, I heard the prophets of Allah already use and I'm saying, a man draws close to the garden

Now, I'm just kidding. But I'm saying is that Subhanallah sometimes we don't really see the value. But you just need to say it. You say the right thing. And Allah subhana wa puts so much Baraka so much Baraka in that word that you put there, I have, I remember just, I want to conclude with this inshallah to Allah, show how sometimes when you say something, you don't know how the impact of those words until later in your life, there was a time

00:58:36--> 00:59:11

after Subhanallah after September 11, it was very difficult for the Muslim community. So I remember we initiated a program at the time I was in El Paso, Texas. So we initiated a program to reach out to the school district and also to the all high schools that we can reach out to so we said look, we have speakers we have material that you can help with if you need anybody to speak about Islam and Muslims in your school, please let us know. But hamdullah we have a good response from few schools and we went to one of them we went three days actually back to back. And at that time, I wasn't I was barely speaking English and when I speak English or product my Chinese was better than my

00:59:11--> 00:59:39

English and so they told me to go and talk because you're the Imam here. I know that I'm the Imam. Yeah, but do you speak English better than me? No, no, no uses good speaking. Yeah, happy we just go. Just go Wallah. I said Bismillah, broken English, whatever, I don't care. Standing on the stage, speaking of our of hundreds of students, and teachers, high school, I mean, these these kids can be bullies. And they can really hurt you. But Subhanallah I was there I was a speaker about Islam.

00:59:41--> 00:59:59

And I have no idea if I was actually able to even to explain it right. And that moment, but then three years later, three years later, I was teaching Sunday school in the masjid. And then somebody comes in, says chef, there was a lady with her husband, they're coming actually she wants to give shahada

01:00:00--> 01:00:13

I was like, Oh, my shoulder interesting. Just let me finish the class and then come to the office right away. So I finished the class wrapped up, you know, this discussion just went to the office there and they see the lady with her husband's panela over there. And I asked her, what's your story?

01:00:14--> 01:00:26

She goes three years ago, you came to our, to our school. And you talked about Islam, and unlike me, she goes, yeah, she goes such and such goes, Oh, wow, that's cool. How did you understand me?

01:00:29--> 01:00:52

She goes, Look, you came and you spoke about Islam. And she said, What I heard what I learned was very intriguing. And she was a history teacher. So she said, I started doing my own research. It took her three years doing such so deep research on the subject she was until I realized there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. I said sister congratulate you or the Muslim now.

01:00:54--> 01:01:22

Yeah, Subhan Allah Allah in that moment, I did not even care after that to talk with anybody. Because you don't know where that file is gonna come and how it's gonna click. You are responsible to deliver the message and just to put the word of higher anywhere you can. Allah subhana wa Tada will deliver that to the people may Allah subhana Watermaker some others will always follow that and listen to the speech and follow the rest of it Yoruba anime, and those when they speak they speak the higher
