00:00:44--> 00:01:31

Santa Monica Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala who knows what the hearts conceal and what to tongues will not reveal the one to whom all shall appeal and in front of whom the believers kneel. And we send Sadat and salam upon the one whom Allah sent as Rama tell lil al Amin, the one whom even his enemies used to call a Saudi Amin, the one who will be our intercessor Yama Dean. Today is Tuesday and we have our regular q&a. And given the fact that Ramadan is around the corner, it is literally next week in sha Allah Who Tada I wanted to spend some time discussing a number of questions pertinent to the Torah, we especially some issues that have come in

00:01:31--> 00:02:17

light of the fact that we will not be having Gemma out in our massages, and so today inshallah I will be doing three questions related to tarawih. The first of these questions, what is salata Tarawa. And where did it get its name from and what is its relationship to Korea Malaysia. So the concept of Tarawa and when it was introduced, and what is its relationship to the night prayer or tahajjud or PMO late so realize that Tarawa is the name given to the preamble Lail or to the salah to tahajjud during the night of Ramadan. So when we say tahajjud or when we say pm will lane, this is the night prayer and the night prayer is the night prayer that is done anytime from salata,

00:02:17--> 00:03:03

Alicia, up until before Salah till Fudger. And the night prayer or the pm will lay or the tahajjud is one of the most blessed prayers after the fourth prayer. And Allah subhanho wa Taala commands our Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and in particular to pray that Tahajjud prayer will mean a lady for tahajjud be Hina philatelic as a nearby Sakura boo karma common muda the more common Muhammad the highest maqam is linked to our Prophet sallallahu I said I'm praying the night prayer Wamena lane and during the night for tahajjud b He prayed that 100 prayer nephila Tilak It is enough it is not a wajib it is something that is supererogatory. It's not obligatory on you. By the way, some earlier I

00:03:03--> 00:03:47

did say that it was obligatory for our Prophet sallallahu Sallam only and not for the rest of us and so when Allah is saying nephila, he is not intending that for the prophets and that is nothing some rule Emma said that it is widely for our Prophet system only because Allah says Comilla Illa kalila stand for the night except for a little bit of the of the night when you sleep and the point being tahajjud is sorry tarawih is tahajjud in Ramadan tarawih is pm will lay in Ramadan. When we do the nightly prayers in this blessed month, it is called tarawih. And the concept of the AMA lane or tahajjud is something that we should all familiar rise ourselves with because all of the blessings

00:03:47--> 00:04:30

of tahajjud apply to tarawih as well. And in one Hadith our prophets of salaam said it has an it is a hustler authentic IDT on a combi pm Elaine I command you to pray or meaning I encourage you to pray at night for inner who will saw the haina Kubla Khan because it was the custom of the righteous peoples before you so it was the custom number one of the righteous peoples before us number two were CORBA to an era bacon and it is something that will bring you close to Allah subhanho wa Taala number three one mocha FIRA to let's say it forgives the evil deeds it's x py it's the evil deeds and number four woman her to annihilate him and it prevents you from doing other sin when you pray

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

to her dude automatically it acts as a barrier from doing other evil deeds. So four beautiful blessings are mentioned for Salah tahajjud number one, it is the custom of the righteous before and after. You want to be from the elite. You want to be from the salah Hain you want to be from the creme de la creme you want to get an A in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala then it must come with Salah tahajjud and number two, it brings you close to Allah subhanho wa Taala number three it forgives your past sins and number four, it is going to be a barrier between

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

You and other sins and in the Hadith and tell me the the famous Hadith our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describe some beautiful places in Jannah that are so beautiful that the palaces are made out of glass or they're made out of crystal that you can see inside and outside. And they said, Yeah rasool Allah Who are those beautiful places the highest the hoerauf meant for So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lemon, a Tarbell Kalam will Oklahoma Tom what a damn was Sam was Celebi lady when asked William to those who do four things who speak well, all the time. They're not vulgar. They're not evil. And they give food to the hungry and they fast and they pray at night when

00:05:38--> 00:06:23

people are asleep. So this is some of the many many blessings of Cleon will lay but in Ramadan, Cleon will lay takes on the highest status why? Many reasons of them, the famous Hadith that we all hear and Ramadan is around the corner so let's refresh ourselves with it. It is more difficulty Buhari and Muslim. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Whoever fasts Ramadan emerged in the seventh all of his past sins are forgiven. And whoever stands at night of Ramadan woman karma Ramadan and the clam here means praying taraweeh The aim here means praying to God in the nights of Ramadan. So whoever prays in the nights of Ramadan extra prayer, that stairway whoever prays that

00:06:23--> 00:07:07

PM, all of his previous sins are going to be forgiven. Therefore dear Muslims taraweeh is no joke tarawih guarantees if you repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala a forgiveness of all of the previous sins that you have done, it is one of the main mechanisms to forgive all of our sins. So let us make it a Nia from now every one of us that unless we have an excuse we are sick, or our sisters, they might have that time of the month. Otherwise, other other than that, let us make it the intention that every single night of this month that is going to come without exception, we shall do some extra nothing extra prayers that we typically don't do. And that is the name given to so that's a

00:07:07--> 00:07:51

taraweeh now, who instituted tarawih where did it begin? It is narrated in the authentic books of Hadith Sahih Bukhari and others that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day in the nights of Torah one night in the nights of Tarawa. He prayed in the masjid on his own, there was no institutionalized or where he prayed on his own. And some people were also praying. And so when they saw him pray, they prayed behind him it was not announced, it was not something that the call came out the event was given no, he happened to be praying to her God. Cleon will lead the people behind him saw him pray. And so they just decided to join new spread the next day. And more than double

00:07:51--> 00:08:34

that is said the people came so the masjid was a very much full and when the Prophet system came out to pray, and he prayed the preamble late so the people behind them also prayed. Then on the third night, the news spread across the whole city. And the masjid was jam packed, the Masjid was full of people, then the Prophet system did not come. And the whole night went, and they he did not come. Then he came out at Fudger. And the masjid was still there. And he said to them, I knew you were here. I didn't I wasn't sleeping, I was praying to God, I knew you were here. But the only reason I did not come out and lead you was I was worried that it might become obligatory, I was worried that

00:08:34--> 00:09:11

either Allah azza wa jal will make it obligatory. And then it would have been difficult for you or some other people would assume that it's obligatory. So as Rama for you, as a mercy for you, I did not come out and pray and that was the last Ramadan of his life SallAllahu Sallam and he passed away. And therefore the concept or the institution of praying was just established and then Allah subhanaw taala only causes him to come back to himself. Then during this have a bucket of so therefore the Allahu and nothing happened that people would just pray in the masjid on their own during the first year of Romans time as well that you said that that would happen perhaps in the

00:09:11--> 00:09:54

second year some say in the time of Ramadan, blah, blah, blah, the Allah one that it is reporting the Sahara Buhari from Abdul Rama wsa Dinakar read that he said one night myself in urban America, we walked outside and it was one of the nights of Ramadan and we went to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we saw groups of people praying on their own or in small Jemma art, somebody's praying on his own. Somebody's praying with one Imam somebody's praying with a small group and they're all in the masjid helter skelter split up. And so Ramadan HotJobs said, I feel that we should combine all of these people upon one party, and he then decided to choose OB Ibn cab,

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

who was one of the main Cora our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever wants to learn the

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

are on the team learn from 104 and number one on the list was obey even cabs obey the cab was considered to be the audit of the sahaba. And many blessings are mentioned about obey I have a life story about obey, you could listen to him, listen to that online. And then the next night obey was leading and the entire congregation was in one Jamar and Oberle, Hatha was very happy. And he said, Nirmal, be there too heavy. What a great new thing that we have done. And this is a deep theological controversy, what did he mean it etc. I've given another lecture about that. I don't like to. It's not something I like to do to encourage listen to other lectures, but I don't have time to go into

00:10:38--> 00:11:16

all of these other tangents. I have given an entire lecture about the reality of Buddha or innovation between the various philosophies and schools out there. And so you can listen to that talk and this narration of Roman Mahatama plays a very crucial role because he said what a great bit is this Nirmal better to have the what did he mean? How has it been interpreted? That is a different topic, but for now, we understand what he is saying is that yesterday, everybody was Helter Skelter. Today, everybody is combined in one gym. Ah, what a great thing that it is. And then he said, well, it will it will lead to pneumonia and Tolman ality of hormone. Those who are sleeping right now are

00:11:16--> 00:11:53

better than those who are praying. And then the narrator himself said he meant those who will wake up at the end of the night are better than those who are praying to now now we're going to come back to this point over here. Now, this is the first year. Eventually books have a seat of history mentioned to us that I'm going to go Hapa would appoint two Imams for the men and they would alternate back and forth. And then he would also eventually one the sisters could not hear. So then he appointed an imam for the sisters. Remember, there's no microphone there is no you know, loudspeakers so the sisters are all in the back they cannot hear so he appointed another imam for

00:11:53--> 00:12:35

them. And for the Ben he would also have alternating you know, either one day one day or some say some record some records over here. And when he instituted taraweeh, he instituted it upon what the prophet system himself used to do as he says that he never prayed more than 11 rocket a night and so it was a trick out of Tarawa and then three raka of winter, that is a total of 11. However, towards the end of his Kailasa, after a few years towards the corona kappa was the Khalifa for 10 solid years, remember, and so towards the end of his claim, after some times in the middle of his philosophy, he changed eight, and he made it 20 rockhard. With Witter to make it 23. Why did he do

00:12:35--> 00:13:02

this? The famous Maliki scholar al Banerjee from Andaluza greater Maliki scholar al badji. He said, the wisdom wire honorable hottub did it from eight to 20 is to make it easier for the people because the ATRA car will be so long that the people would bring their sticks and they would stand to get support and we got so long. And so he made a 20 to make it easier for them smaller bits that can rest and what not. And

00:13:03--> 00:13:45

the when he made it 20 They also began another habit or a custom that goes back to the Prophet sallallahu idea he was selling what is this custom issue says that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam kinda usefully Otterbein fella test and Krishna hinda will do the Hindu Athan masala urban Falletta salon Krishna hinda. What will be hidden the third most Lolita life and the prophecies and would pray for then he would take a break, pray another four. And she said Don't even ask how beautiful and long they were beautiful and long. That's the point of Tarawa then he would take a break then pray another four to two law then take a break then he would pray three raka Witter. So from this in

00:13:45--> 00:14:32

the time of herbal ricotta, they derive the customer habit and that was after every for regard to two after every four they will take a break and this brake or this rest in Arabic it has a word and that is TR we have that we have means an interlude that we have means a break and the plural of Teresa tarawih. And so tarawih means multiple interludes or multiple breasting breaks. That's what the meaning of tarawih comes. And this is why the Tarawih prayer was called tarawih and the earliest person I could find FYI who said this was the famous Hanafi Massassi and inscrutable mob suit. He says that Imam Abu Hanifa explained why they call the tarawih and he mentioned this point that they

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

will rest after every photocards and Abu Hanifa Rambo Allah passes away in the year when 50 Hijra. So he's talking about what he heard from his teachers who are the Dubba Tabby rune and they are learning from the tabby rune and the sahaba. And so this notion of tarawih being that which breaks into various after every four this is something that goes back to this name Tara we have now the people of Medina began praying this 20 raka art and why 20

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

He by the way, it does not appear that there's any particular reason or wisdom wire I'm gonna call Bob went to 20 recart is just a number that was more convenient. Perhaps he wanted to double to 16 that go 16 is I don't know I'm we're just assuming nobody knows why it was 20 but Omar will hop out did Institute the number 20 And this custom then spread to Makkah from Medina. It started obviously because the Caliphate was in Medina and real Hapa lived in Medina, it then spread to Makkah, and within a few years or generation maybe at the very Max a generation, the people of Makkah would do something else Subhanallah This is what happens when you are in Makkah that after every for God

00:15:42--> 00:16:25

during that interlude that break you know, we call it the Torah which means that are we what are the breaks after every four raka there would be that break. And so people began standing up and doing pull off in that break and then coming back to continue de terre we're okay, now somebody can say how can they possibly do throw off in a break and we respond that realize that when there is no rush and no crowd, it is very easy to do throw up very quickly in Japan hola me, you know I have done more obras than I can count any literally male hamdulillah May Allah accept more than 1000 Omer as I have done in my life. And there have been times that I have done a tawaf in less than 11 minutes I

00:16:25--> 00:17:05

have timed myself that at times, you know, these days it's almost impossible to well right now it is empty, May Allah bring the crowds back. We missed those crowds, but when I would go and it will be crowded, I would miss my times when I we used to go as a student, and I would go in the middle of the season, and I would do it at 3am or something and it was absolutely dead empty, and you could kiss the Blackstone and you could do throw off in 1112 minutes walking at a moderate pace. So this is the trowel now the people of Makkah regularly began doing toe off after every for recart Subhanallah when the people of Medina heard we don't know exactly when, but estimate around 100 100

00:17:05--> 00:17:51

or 120 Hijra. So this is going back and forth. The people of Makkah and Medina are competing with one another for good. When the people of Medina heard this, they decided because they cannot do throw off. What should they do? They decided they're going to increase the number of raka as of Tarawa. And so they decided to pray instead of 20. A generation after a miracle Bob, they decided to pray 36 Raka, they added 16 records, and then three to make it a total of 39 Almost 40 Like they wanted to almost double it. So 39 record they will begin to pray with Witter, and that's what we find. Imam Shafi saying that Zafrani Asti mama SHA theory about the Torah we and Imam Shafi said or

00:17:51--> 00:18:37

a to nursery your co Munna will Medina T patisserie in with Allah Thien, will be met Khattab with earthen wa Shireen. What is officiating methodic Oba yoke, that somebody, the famous caller, Zafrani asked him Mr. SCHEFFER, what do you think about tarawih how many regards? Imam Shafi said I saw the people of Medina praying 39 drug cause we explained 36 plus 339. They there was 36 that Oh, yeah. And they saw the people of Makkah, praying 23 rockers, and there is no harm in whichever position you want to follow. And Imam Shafi also said that, if they lengthen the cranium, and they make the stage this small, that is good. And if they make the player the pm here means the recitation if they

00:18:37--> 00:19:20

recite very long sutras, and they make the search the short, that's good. And if they recite smaller sutras, and they make the search those long, that two is good, but I prefer the first I prefer for tarawih, that are that deep, recitation is long, and the soldiers are short. So this is the opinion about tarawih, where it comes from not the opinion sorry, the meaning of the rawia. By the way, it's not the only meaning. Some scholars of the past also said that the term tarawih comes from the people of Makkah, not Medina, that this tawaf that they will do, they would call that the interlude. And so from the people of Makkah, the taraweeh. And anyway, the point is that both of these terms go

00:19:20--> 00:19:51

back to that rest and into the rest from the long term. So from the long term, they would rest by doing tawaf. Subhanallah those were those were the days we rest by just leaning back and lying down. They were dressed by getting invigorated and twink, though off Subhanallah and one of my teachers, shuts them out or they may Allah azza wa jal free him from the womb that he is currently undergoing in jail, but it shuts them out. They also said that I also have psychological interpretation of Tarawa it's not historical, he said, Tara we also can come from the phrase Rihanna,

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

Ra which means to find comfort from the phrase of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they can be Hi yah, yah below

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

And that bring comfort or Billa through the Salah. So Sherman said that the tarawih is one of the greatest comforts of Ramadan, it brings comfort to our soul. And so it is called Torah we because we find peace in it. Now, that's not a historical interpretation. It is a psychological one, historically speaking, the naming was done in the end of the first or the beginning of the second century, not by the Sahaba, not by the prophets of Allah Salam, but by the students of the Sahaba or maybe even their students and early scholars in mama Shaffir and others are using this term tarawih no problem over here now. Imam Shafi explicitly said I found the people of Medina praying 39 I found

00:20:39--> 00:21:28

the people of Makkah praying 23 And whichever you want to do is fine. And this has been the standard position throughout Islamic history. Dear Muslims, please do not begin especially at this time of COVID lockdown and things are already tense. Please do not revert to the very petty issue of eight vs. 20 SubhanAllah. From a historical perspective, it is non existent this controversy did not exist throughout the Ummah it was begun by one scholar of the last generation may Allah bless and forgive him, passionate scholar of Hadith very zealous, but very unique is an interpretation and he began claiming that to pray 20 Raka is an innovation or a bitter and as she attributed with me and my

00:21:28--> 00:22:10

teacher said that whoever says that to pray more than eight is a bit that person himself is saying a bit because no one before him ever said this in Islamic history. And that is very true. This interpretation that TR we must be a certain number of records. This is wrong because the rawia is not a phone Salah it is enough to Salah you want to pray more you want to pray less you want to pray 2336 You want to pray, whatever, it's not something that Allah azza wa jal has legislated true our Prophet system is his own custom and habit he would pray a tracker plus three some have added two which is the introductory so when he would wake up at night our profit system would pray to very

00:22:10--> 00:22:51

quick raka just to begin the Torah we heard the claim which was a this was any any day, not just in Ramadan, then he would pray a tracker and he said, Don't even ask me how beautiful and long they were, then he would pray three raka Witter, but he didn't tell us in fact, when the companion came and said, Yeah rasool Allah How do I pray? The Tamil ln he said, Pray Messina, Messina for either Conchita Saba will pray to Allah Kaltura. Ca when you think that it's about time to pray, Fajr then stand up and pray Witter. So this hadith is explicit. And this has been the position of pretty much the entirety of the OMA for the last 13 and a half centuries, up until one particular chef or Adam

00:22:51--> 00:23:27

comes along and again, Yanni May Allah reward and forgive him and bless him for all the good that he has done. But still, everybody is human. And he had a position that went against pretty much everybody else. And because of this, and this great chair, he began a movement that became very popular across the globe. And this movement then began saying to pray, eight is the only thing possible to do more than eight is a bid out or an innovation and this is frankly, without any scholarly merit and I'm being gentle when I say that. There is no scholarly merit in that position whatsoever. This is something that you look at historically, pray whatever you want to pray, but the

00:23:27--> 00:24:08

more important thing about the quantity is the quality. Please do not discuss back and forth if somebody says that it has been asked to pray 20 Say Zakah locker make sure you pray the eighth as the prophecies and prayed End of story. Don't worry about the quantity worry about the quality more than this. Now. The point being therefore pray as much as you want it say nothing salah or a sunnah Salah Roberto Hartog clearly instituted 20 Whoever wants to pray 20 No problem and the prophecies and clearly used to pray eight plus winter that's 13 Whoever wants to that no problem. Please do not make this a point of any animosity both positions have historical legitimacy, even though the one

00:24:08--> 00:24:36

who wants to follow the Prophet systems position. More importantly than the number should be the quality and the reason why Ramana Mahatama did 20 Remember was to make it easier you know you have 1000 people praying 2000 people praying not everybody can spend the entire two hours people have to leave people have to come in and out so when you have shorter guys, it makes it easier for the congregation therefore both have their positions and Isha although there is no hemorrhage in either one that is done.

00:24:38--> 00:25:00

The other issue comes now that suppose in regular times we had the throwaway prayer in our Masjid suppose in regular times we have the throwaway prayer. Is it better to pray with the gym or or is it better to break at home? Now again, this is one we have the choice these days there is no choice. And this is again, a difference of which one is better? Every single

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

Other said both are permissible. Every scholar in Islamic history said whichever you want to do it is fine. But now scholars different which one is the better of the two? And generally speaking, the Hanafi school and the humbly school and the Maliki school, sorry, the humbly the Hanafi and the Shaffir excuse me, not them out again. Generally speaking, those three said it is better of a sunnah to pray with Jamaat event of Imam Imam Muhammad, as typical has multiple rewired to humble, you know what I'm talking about. And the Maliki madhhab was the one month hub that was very clear, and they said that praying at home is better off well, for the one who is able to do that. Otherwise, if he's

00:25:39--> 00:26:17

not able to do that, then you can pray in the GEMA. And the reason why the Maliki said this was that the default is that Sunnah prayers and knuffel prayers are done in one's privacy. And between you and Allah subhanho wa taala. And you should do it as long as possible. When you're doing it in public, you have the problem of people looking at you people, your media might be corrupted, you have the problem of you're, you're basically if you want to do longer, the mom wants to do shorter. Also timing, because all of the mothers have say one taraweeh is done, it should be done early in the night, because you want to make it easy for the people. And yet the prophets or some himself

00:26:17--> 00:26:57

encouraged us to pray at the end of the night. So we have to look at ideal and we have to look at minimum and the minimum is to pray at any time and the easiest is right after Isha. And that's why across the Muslim world tarawih has done right after throttle Asia because not everybody can wake up at 3am at 4am. And pray preamble late but that is the real and the best time of preamble late. And that is the time when as our prophets have said Allah Himself comes down and he asks who is wanting my forgiveness, I shall forgive him who is asking me I shall give him who is demanding of me anything I shall give him what he wants, that happens for food with the ladle Acade in the last 1/3

00:26:57--> 00:27:37

of the night. So there is no question that that is the better time to pray. But there are ways to make it easier for the Ummah is in the beginning of the night. And in my humble opinion and Allah knows best. This question does not have a blanket answer it's a case by case basis. If a person is going to find better humility and better hair short and better a bada, praying in public listening to a beautiful Quran praying, you know, in the routine, then that is better. And if the person has the hem, the fortitude, the courage, a person has the the the desire to pray a longer prayer in the middle of the night at the end of the night. And there is no question that praying alone in your

00:27:37--> 00:28:15

house that always prayer in the middle of the night is the best. And the reason I'm saying this is because now dear Muslims, we don't have this choice, this choice is thrust upon us. Now we are all praying in our homes. So Subhanallah In fact, for some of us, this might be the best that we have our lives if we discovered the joy of actual tahajjud That having been said, Dear fathers in particular and family people in charge of the families do realize that there is some responsibility for your family and children as well. And so try to do something if your children are of age and they're not going to spend the whole night awake or get up at the end of the night at least do

00:28:15--> 00:28:38

something with them in the middle of the night and the beginning of the night. So that this thing is done that sometimes is prayed is prayed in the house also realize as well that leading the taraweeh prayer the Torah which is a Nuffield Salah and so firstly, according to most of the methods a child can lead the Knuffle Salah some of the methods have been stricter and said that

00:28:39--> 00:29:18

that for the fourth Salah you cannot have a child lead child meaning what is mama? Yes, so there's layer by layer. So there's a child as a toddler, and then there's a child that has seen their tummies and Mama years means they can understand like imagine a seven year old the average seven year old understands I need to do although I cannot break my will do I have to pray in a proper manner. A two year old would not understand these things. So obviously a toddler is too young to lead anything but there's something called Signet, tummies and tummies is that a child understand is cognizant Right? Definitely the few years before puberty so puberty let's say it's 12 years old, 13

00:29:18--> 00:29:56

years old. Definitely the 10 year old the nine year old is old enough to understand what is haram and halal. What breaks will do to go and do will do again that is called sin that to me is when does it begin? It varies from child to child there are some children at the age of five they fully understand the point being you want somebody who knows how to do with who and who knows when will do breaks and who knows to pray Salah in a serious manner that is called Cinder tummies and since tarawih is a Nuffield Salah it is not a fourth salah. Therefore, you can have a child lead by all of the format's have no problem. You can have a child lead. Why do I say this? Because in many

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

households, some of our children have memorized more Quran than

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

As some of our children are going to the field school, and they will hamdulillah and 510 15 Jews with better touch with than the parents. And so this is a good opportunity to encourage these youngsters to lead the salah. Now, a girl can only lead other females in sweater. And so if you have a half silver, or a young girl that is doing HIV, she may take her mother and her sisters, and she may lead them in the Salah, no problem, and she will stand in the same row as the knot in front of them. And a boy can lead both boys and girls in the Salah. And this is something that is well known There's a famous hadith of American Islam, it's actually a little bit a little bit funny in its own

00:30:38--> 00:31:10

way that unbelievably selama says that the tribe that I was very beautiful, Adidas has high bodies very long. I'm going to summarize it in my own words, that somebody when they said Ms says that I was a young boy, you know, six, seven years old, and and the tribes would go back and forth in our village and we heard of Islam that way. We were not in Medina, he's in a in a small village. And we heard of Islam that way. And these tribes, the Muslims would come in and out and I started memorizing the Quran from them when they're going through and back and forth. Because I was the youngest I had a good memory, I memorize the Quran even not as a Muslim. Eventually my father

00:31:10--> 00:31:53

accepted Islam after the conquest of Makkah. And my father went to the Prophet system Medina, he came back with this commandment that at every time of the Salah, the advantage should be given and then the one amongst you who knows the most Quran should be the Imam. So I'm gonna says and I'm gonna says that they looked around, they did an exam, they quizzed everybody. And they discovered I knew the most Quran because I was memorizing from the travelers and these are all new Muslims now the tribe, but since he used to interact with the Muslim community since he would sit with them and listen, look at them pray. He memorized sutras from the Quran. So he said, they found me to be the

00:31:53--> 00:32:33

most the one who knew the most Quran, even though I was six or seven years old at the time. So they made me their Imam. And I was a poor child, I didn't even have full clothes, I just had an upper garment that would come on top of me. And when I would go into such the, my back would be exposed, right? Because he was poor when you're poor you are now he didn't even know he should have actually put it on his waist, but he doesn't know he's a child anyway. So he's a six, seven year old. And so I went into stage there and my back and he literally the back, you know, what I'm talking about was exposed. And so a lady screamed out from the back. And she said, oh, people cover the behind of your

00:32:33--> 00:33:12

Imam right. Some lady screamed out right covered the behind the view Imam. And so the men came together after the Salah, and they purchased for me a brand new cloak. Amber says it was the happiest day of my life at that time, and I was only six or seven years old. Now, the hadith is very nice and cute and funny and whatnot. But what it shows us is that the AMA, during the time of the Prophet saw something this is happening. Ahmed would lead his tribe in Salah because they didn't know any Quran, and he had already memorized a few sutras and so they made him their Imam The point being, I'm just mentioning that on the site, the point being that pretty much all that there is no

00:33:12--> 00:33:48

there is no issue for a child leading the Salah, as long as the child understands the rulings of Salah. What that means is that in particular, there should be an element of seriousness, the child should not be joking and laughing there should be a cognizance and awareness of will do and of what breaks will do and the kind of prayer and you know even the basics of surgery, so at least teach them even at that time. And then he may lead the family inside up. No problem. Also, dear Muslims realized and we're still on the first question and by the way, the point of finishing the entire Quran during Torah we're by unanimous consensus of all the scholars of Islam, it is not a

00:33:48--> 00:34:27

requirement, it is not a requirement, it is not a necessary part of taraweeh. Now, in some mud hubs, they say that it is encouraged and fine in the Moodle winner or the famous Maliki book. So Hanoun the student in memory, he said I asked him a Malik about finishing the Quran, Imam Malik said finishing the entire Quran during the time of Ramadan is not sunnah. And so he would say Mr. Malik anima Malik died. 179 is very early, and he's talking about his own customer and what He's saying look, and what he means is not sunnah. What he means is that the Prophet system did not do it. And technically that is correct. He did not do it. It doesn't mean it's better. By the way. Mr. Malik is

00:34:27--> 00:35:00

simply saying it's no big deal if you finish the Quran or not no big deal. In the Hanafi school, it is a strongly encouraged sunnah. And that's why generally speaking, in the lands that follow the Hanafi madhhab they have this notion that there are weird and finishing the Quran go hand in hand, and even in the Hanafi school, it is not a requirement. So please understand this point. Yes, the Hanafi has encouraged it. But the Maliki's and Shafi say it's no big deal whether you finish the Quran or not, and therefore it is much more common in the Shafi lands and whatnot that they might recite just

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

To to iron three iron at one higher and then go into court just to make it easy for the people whereas generally speaking in our Hanafi lands, there is a much more emphasis of finishing the whole Quran. But the point is given the circumstances you should be aware that no scholar has ever said that it is necessary to finish the Quran in surah where if you're not able to do that, whatever you're able to do, even if you read you know, the last Jews, um, if you read you know, even if you read technically the same Surah on every single rock, if you haven't memorized more than you have done the salata, Tara, we have no problem. And the as we already said, the the the concept of what

00:35:40--> 00:36:13

time is best already explained this, that if you're praying publicly, then the Jamar should be doing right after Asia to make things easier. Likewise, if you're the father of the household, and you want to do it for your family, and they're not going to wake up at three, four o'clock, then definitely do something. It's better than nothing. But if you are able to privately do something at the end of the night, and that is the last third of the night, how do you calculate it last third, the time of maturity, and the time of Fudger. That is the beginning and end, divide that into threes. And the last third is going to be that last third of the night. And that's typically in our

00:36:13--> 00:36:34

time is going to be the last two three hours before Fajr. That is going to be the the prime time for tahajjud or Kiama. Leave that is the best time. So this answers our first question. And that is a brief summary of Tarawa and the quantity of rockhard. And what should be recited, and the best timing, all of the history all of this has been done. And now we shall move to the second question.

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

The second question.

00:36:40--> 00:37:24

And this I have been asked by many, many people, Facebook and Twitter has been bombarding me with this question and it is on the minds of many of us. In light of the current circumstances, can we pray? Or are we in our houses while the Imam is in the masjid or somewhere else? And we have a live connection or a live feed via the Internet? If the tarawih is being broadcast live? Can we tune in? And can we stand in our own houses and pray as macdaddy macdaddy means the one behind the Imam and take an imam that is not physically in front of us. Okay, this is the second question, a virtual a virtual taraweeh

00:37:25--> 00:38:13

there is no question that mainstream traditional film would never allow this. And the reasons for this are self evident and obvious. By definition. What does the word Gemma I mean? The word Gemma I mean the congregation. The word Jamar means physically coming together. And that is why by unanimous consensus, you know, of the four schools I should say, the people that are standing far apart cannot be considered to be one GEMA. Now, what constitutes far apart? What constitutes the maximum distance between the mock today the mock daddy is the one who's behind the Imam and the Imam. What is the maximum distance? Well, the different methods have different, you know, connotations in this regard.

00:38:13--> 00:38:51

The Maliki method says that, you know, there's no problem if there's a river or a road between the those who fall off and there's a large break or something and there's some still sense of connection, even if there's a river or road between them. No problem emammal Karsan in his famous book Obadiah Asana, which is the Hanafi book, I wanted the earliest one of your books, he says that the Hanafi position is that if there is a gap of two rows than the GMR is broken, so any roughly 10 feet or so I mean, don't quote me on the 10 feet, but basically two rows are more than 10 feet if you want so if there's that much of a distance it is broken. The humble is in there mature position,

00:38:51--> 00:39:31

they said that one should be within visual distance of the Imam and even Kodama says that even if you're not visual, but at least you can hear or see one of the rows. So even if it's a huge GEMA and you cannot see the Imam but wherever you are, you can see a row and that row is visible, you can hear them, then you can be connected. So the point is each of these Janumet hubs is kinda sorta in its own way. They're saying there's got to be a reasonable distance and each one of them has a different opinion about what exactly is reasonable now, when loudspeakers were introduced, and this is back in the 50s and 60s, so some of our scholars then did become a little bit more you know,

00:39:31--> 00:40:00

lacks that okay even if you cannot see the Imam but still it is one connected group and again, there was some controversy over what what constitutes connected and what is reasonable. But still, nobody said that just because you can hear the Imam very very far away. You can still pray with the with Jamar there has to be some sense of connectivity. When live TV broadcast was introduced and this is in the how domain they began broadcasting live tarawih prayers live in the 1980s

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

East was when they began broadcasting for the very first time in the in the mid 1980s. They started the Saudi Arabian television they started broadcasting. I'm not saying other countries from Makkah and Medina, I don't know other countries. Maccha Medina was in the mid to early 80s They began broadcasting the live transmission. And so the people began asking them if we're in the same timezone, and we are in the Mecca timezone. People in Jeddah are two minutes apart is in the same timezone. Like where the one that robbery starts, they can pray the people of Makkah that are not coming to the harem. So they began asking the senior scholars and so the Council of seniors call

00:40:36--> 00:41:16

those that, hey, it's about Obama was asked a question that can we tune in to the live television broadcast on Saudi national television, if we're in the same timezone? Obviously, nobody's saying if you're in Timbuktu, then you can do that. No, we mean, something. Within the same timezone from Maccha. That can we pray, and the Council of Senior Scholars, they said that it is not permissible by unanimous consensus, because it would not constitute a GEMA. You're not physically in the vicinity of the of the haram. And that's something that they said is not allowed. And that's definitely standard, traditional interpretation. Now,

00:41:17--> 00:42:04

having said that, given the current circumstances that we are facing, there is no question that fit does allow, and this is something everybody knows, fine tuning if the conditions are met, and if the Sharia allows for it. So the question is, can we, in light of current circumstances rethink through this issue of GEMA? Can we, in the spirit of having a taraweeh prayers in the spirit of most people are not going to be praying the proper prayers anyway? And because we're not having for the first time in Islamic history, you know, masajid across the globe are shut down. We're not going to be having congregations. So in light of these extenuating circumstances can we rethink through this

00:42:04--> 00:42:51

issue, and temporarily, not permanently, just in light of this year, maybe even just allow for a Gemini that is online or virtual, and I have been following many people across the globe, many scholars, I look up to many councils, and hearing from them what they are saying, and a number of scholars have allowed this most famously, yesterday, Sheikh Mohammed Hassan wala Dudu, one of the great eye learners in every sense of the term alive, she had to do, he did give a very explicit fatwa, in which he said that it is permissible, and he said that it is permissible only in light of current circumstances only as an exception, to keep the spirit alive. And he says, this is a Nazia

00:42:51--> 00:43:34

issue, or it's an issue that basically we're giving in light of today's extenuating circumstance. And there are some other small voices as well. However, and I'm just saying this for information, however, that having been said, please be aware that, as far as I know, to up until today that I'm giving you this lecture, that as far as I know, no, fifth Council, in any part of the world, as far as I know, has allowed online Gemma, not the European Council, not the American Muslim jurists Association, not the fifth Council North America that I sit upon, not any of the fifth councils that are the measurement of 50 and others that are senior councils around the globe. None of them have

00:43:34--> 00:44:23

allowed this and they have all said that. Yes, true. A times we rethink through filter and we can fine tune but their perspective is having a gym is not a necessity. So why rethink through the concept of a gym I want it is not a necessity we rethink through one in his society is being infringed when something that is haram or Halal when a very big thing. As for Tara, we, if you pray at home, what's the big deal? If you pray by yourself? What's the big deal? Why do we have to rethink that their philosophy and because of this and personal and I have said this many, many times that I don't feel comfortable personally, to give any position or fatwa that is unique I'd never

00:44:23--> 00:44:58

have in my life done given any position that is uniquely my own, and filter issues in some areas of Islam is different but definitely in fifth I do not consider myself to be able to be much the head not luck. I always follow those whom I look up to. And especially for our times I've said this multiple times. I personally prioritize the field councils for modern issues. And I have four or five field councils that I look up to and I myself am a member of one of them the third Council of North America the reason why I prefer councils is because you have multiple minds coming together. It's not just one and you have the budget model filter, you have the measurement Robitaille added we

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

have multiple that are glow

00:45:00--> 00:45:32

But and then you have regional you have the European field council that I personally look up to immensely. And it has a number of people that are good friends and colleagues of mine and they're on that council here in America, the American Muslim jurists Association. I know almost everybody personally, I attend many times as well. And the fifth Council, of course, I'm on it. And these are the counselors that are European and Western, these three in particular, I'm not saying there are not others, there are others as well. But to me personally, these are the ones that I'm, in particular very well connected with. And I do look up to for Western fatawa. And none of these

00:45:32--> 00:46:19

councils have as of yet allowed this. And therefore, even if a few handful of scholars whom I personally know and admire have allowed it, I cannot find myself siding with them personally. If somebody wishes to follow, that's their business, I cannot encourage it. And I find myself hesitant to open this door. And I'm going to stick with what the majority have said in this regard. And that means that Gemma eyes cannot take place when you are miles and miles away from the email, there has to be physical proximity. And this is the position that I personally hold up until now. Now, if this were to change and suffer some filth councils were to change their position, perhaps I might change

00:46:19--> 00:46:44

as well. Because I understand where shareholder data and orders are coming from. And I see the perspective and at one level, I am sympathetic, at the same time, I am cautious and I want to stick with those that are more senior to me and also more in quantity. Not saying that you have to do this is definitely senior to many of us. And He alone is like an Omaha programmer. But that's a different story altogether. So

00:46:45--> 00:47:09

still, I would say let's stick with the majority and not open this door. And to the best of my knowledge here in Dallas as well. And I'm going to a group as well of a local Imams and scholars I don't think any of us as of yet we have not opened this door and we will not be opening this door to the best of my knowledge. Now, having said all of that, before I move to my final question, there's going to be three questions today. Having said all of that,

00:47:10--> 00:47:20

there is one thing I'd like to put in the footnote. It is a scenario that I do not encourage at all. At the same time.

00:47:22--> 00:47:36

It would be permissible according to the majority of Obama, it doesn't require radical HDR, it doesn't require rethinking through the formula. And I would not encourage this but it is a concession that might be

00:47:37--> 00:48:18

something that certain groups of people can avail themselves to. And that concession is that what is called in the classical books of fic. Elected or sorry, or the outer illusion of following the Imam where there is an illusion of following the Imam but it is an illusion, you are not following the Imam. And when do our classical books discuss this while they discuss it in a number of scenarios have them in the well let's just say one example that the Imam is somebody that you think you should not be praying behind maybe he's a very weird belief or whatnot, and yet you're in a public or he's the leader or he's the the Muslim Khalifa or something or whatever it might be. And you think that

00:48:19--> 00:48:45

what for whatever reason are they give some examples that your saliva behind them is not valid. So this is called a dictator, elected or Saudi, where outwardly your record and sujood will be somewhat in sync with the rest of the people. But in reality, you are making a near that you're putting your own Salah and if somebody were to look at you, he would assume that you are praying Jamar, but in reality you are praying your own Salah now

00:48:46--> 00:49:33

and again I'm just putting this as a footnote, so please My position is don't open this door. However, if somebody really cannot recite the Quran cannot and will not be praying taraweeh at all, they're not going to find any who sure they really want to follow somebody who is broadcasting live it has to be a live broadcast in that same timezone. One way out could be that they do this acted out solely which means they pray their own taraweeh with their own Archon and they are doing their own Fatiha and everything they are doing as if they're independent, and they have the live recitation playing as well at the same time, such that when they recite Fatiha, the Imam is reciting

00:49:33--> 00:50:00

Fatiha, then they can be quiet and listen to the recitation of the Imam because you know it is not a rockin in the knuffel Salah according to any of the methods to have another prayer after the fact that I know the surah after the fatwa if you just recite fire to her and then if you want to just turn in our clinical Kota for example that every other car then you listen to the Imam. So and then when the Imam goes into court, you are not following you're not a macdaddy you just happen to be

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

Go into your own record. Then when the man goes into Korea, you just happen to go into Korea and you roughly synchronize but you are praying your own Salah independent of your knee is independent, not behind the Imam and you are praying you're too and the Imam was praying his too but it just so happens that when he's reciting the Quran, you are listening to the Quran and you are getting you know, the Tierra were done, if this is done in some situations and scenarios, and it's nothing wrong with this because you have done the Salah, but there is no actual FTD you are not actually following the Imam. And again, I would only think that this would be useful if certain groups of people like

00:50:43--> 00:51:11

somebody does not know anything from the Quran or and they just don't want to recite through the class all the 20 Ricardo a trucker or somebody is not going to be motivated unless he's praying behind his regular Imam and it's so happens that his Imam is is reciting Yanni the Torah we are live or whatnot. Otherwise, this is not something that definitely should be encouraged if we're not going to go down the route of virtual Salas and that's not as I said, we're not going down that route. And Allah azza wa jal knows best.

00:51:12--> 00:51:16

We now get to the last question of today's today's lesson.

00:51:18--> 00:51:26

Today's halacha I should say, and it is a standard question. And it is something that doesn't require rethinking through and that is,

00:51:27--> 00:51:35

can we hold the most half in our hands when we pray? Player Moonglade? Can we read from the most half hour Torah? We have

00:51:36--> 00:51:47

the answer to this question, realize we're talking about the Nuffield Salas not the fourth the Torah we prayer is nothing or sunnah it is not fun because obligatory something else.

00:51:48--> 00:52:35

The answer to this question, it is actually very clear to the majority of scholars in science Behati we have a hadith or method of action on the Allahu anha the Isha would command her freed slaves, the Quan to lead them in Salah and the Quan because he was not a Hatfield he would recite from the most half and this is insoluble highly Wakana young Corrado mineral most heavy he would recite from the most half. And this is very explicit, very clear. And this is something that is you cannot get more explicit and you know, and it isn't sign Buhari, even though it's in Wilder form, but it is has an Hadith and that is the actual of the Allahu anha commanded her Mola the Quan during the nights of

00:52:35--> 00:53:20

Ramadan to lead them in Salah. This is after the death of the Prophet SAW Selim Isha would not go to pray in the masjid, she would pray in her house, and she had a freed slave or servant who would lead them in Salah, but he did not have that memorize the Quran. So he would preed from the most half. And this is something very explicit. The famous scholar inicia hubba Zuhdi and zody died 129 Hijra and he is one of the greatest if not the greatest scholars of the tabular, interpret tabular and is really his main generation, one of the greatest aroma of Islam as Zoey. And Zoey was asked about a man who recites from the most half during Ramadan, and Zuhdi, who met some of the students and the

00:53:20--> 00:54:06

sons of the Sahaba zaharie met some of the main sons of the Sahaba zody said can hear Runa your corona Phil most half the best amongst us, I remember them they would read from the most half this is a zody saying this. So it was a well known well accepted habit that during the nights of Ramadan, when people would lead them in salah they will hold the most half and in the model one of Soho which is one of the earliest books of Maliki and the one who wrote it as a student of Imam Malik and he said that I asked him Malik about this issue and Malik said So Imam Malik and again he is a person who is living in Medina two generations after the Prophet Sall Allahu Allahu Salam Imam Malik said

00:54:06--> 00:54:14

there is no harm in carrying the most half for the imam in Ramadan for the nephew prayer meeting for the 200 because the 100 is nothing the only

00:54:16--> 00:54:58

meaning and effort here is that not the fourth player so not to for Isha, there is no harm for the Imam to carry the most half, you know, in the Knights of tarawih. Basically, this is Imam Malik explicitly saying and that's the standard Maliki madhhab and in my humble was asked about this, and he said, learn about us and you saw Leah be nursing Cleon Warholian Buddha Phil must have filmless if there is no harm, there's no problem at all. It's not even mcru Nothing, no problem for the Imam to carry the most half and he is leading the people in solder and he is looking at the most half again this is for the for the taraweeh prayer again we're not talking about the fall of prayer and

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

Imam and nowhere in his much more so we

00:55:00--> 00:55:42

talked about the mighty chemotherapy my Malik is explicit. We talked about the humbling meta of Imam Muhammad Muhammad is explicit and the greatest scholar of the Shafi madhhab in the medieval times is Uma Minogue mo norwayne is much more he says that if he leads the from the Quran from the most half and he recites the Quran from the most half, regardless of whether he is a half filled or not, it does not matter and the Salah is valid and correct. So, he said that the Salah is going to be valid, if the person leads from the most half there is no problem here. So this is the Shafi school, the Maliki school, and the humbly school three of them and I also quoted you, Aisha, our mother of the

00:55:42--> 00:56:15

Allahu Anhu way before any of these Imams and according to administrate Hubbard zody, who was a well traveled scholar, he had lived in Medina, he lived in Damascus, he met the sons of the sahaba. And he said, we all used to do this and are the greatest people I met, they will do this. So it is something that the majority of the OMA has accepted. Obviously, I have left one school, and that is the school that is the strictest in this regard. And we respect all of the schools, no problem with that. But you should be aware that these schools exist and they have their differences. And of course, the school that is left is the one school that is the strictest in this regard. And that is

00:56:15--> 00:57:03

the Hanafi school and the Hanafi school. Generally speaking, they were reluctant to open this door, Imam Al Cassani in his famous book by Eros Sana. And by the way, I have to say this system, but that her son, Emmanuel Cassandra died 587 hours if I read her nature, and remember, Cassani was a great student of Imam a summer Pundi and Mr. Silva Condi had written a book of Hanafi folk, and Imam Al Ghazali was a student. And so emammal Cassani he wrote, what is considered to be one of the greatest classics of the Hanafi school called without your asana, and he presented it to his teacher, as as a commentary to the book that his teacher or summer Candy had written. And this teacher was so

00:57:03--> 00:57:34

impressed with the book Subhanallah this became a joke for later Hana fees and it's a true story. He said, This book I will consider to be the Muhammad for my daughter's hand in marriage, and he gave his daughter in marriage to his main student and he said the Mahara of the marriage is going to be this book. Subhanallah so the book but I Asana became the Mahara for the marriage of Imam Al khair Sani Subhan Allah, those with different types of Mahara. I don't know if any of our current sisters would accept him or her to be written a multivolume book of

00:57:35--> 00:57:38

Allah and Western anyway, jokes aside, what was I saying?

00:57:39--> 00:58:19

Who was the thing but that was sunnah of caste Alia? So I remember Cassani writes in his brother, Arizona, he mentioned from Abu Hanifa. And the reason I say this is I could not find it in a mob suit, which is an earlier book but emammal Cosanti he writes that Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Allah considered the salah to be bald, no and void if somebody held the most half. Okay, so the Hanafi school Imam Abu Hanifa was explicit. If you hold the most half then the sada is belted null and void. Now, this became the standard position of the Hanafi school. It is what the Hanafi is called the Mufasa behavior or the fatwa that is given it is the standard position and that is why our

00:58:19--> 00:58:57

Hanafi brethren, may Allah bless them and grant them good in this one we are generally speaking in their sub cultures, the concept of carrying a must have is alien to them. And if you go to the Shafi cultures, the Maliki cultures, the humbly cultures it is very common in the Knights of Tarawa to find people carrying the must have no problem. That having been said and I'm not going to interfere within the intricacies of the Hanafi madhhab. As I have said, I am more familiar with the Hanbali school that is the school I typically follow in my personal life. But that having been said the Hanafi should be aware that the two famous scholars students of Abu Hanifa

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

the W called the Abu Yusuf and Mohammed bin Hassan a che Barney they are called Asahi bein or the sahaba. And the two main disciples, the both of them they disagreed with their teacher and mentor of Rouhani found this issue Rahim Allah to Allah. And they said that if a person were to carry the most have the Salah is not bottle, but they did say that it is mcru It should be avoided, but it is not about it. And later with Emma, they extracted reasons for this. And they said that there are two reasons that we can find in the Hanafi school. The first of them there's too much motions are how Raka and as you know, during Salah you should have minimal amount of extra motions. And the second

00:59:36--> 00:59:44

they said there is an element of imitation or to Shugborough for other religious rituals. And fair enough, that's that's their extrapolation.

00:59:45--> 00:59:59

But many others might say that if you're carrying an iPhone, and you just holding it and you just it's not really to Shugborough sorry, it's not really too much how taka per se, or to get out of the Halacha issue. Yeah, and I'm just saying Yanni,

01:00:00--> 01:00:37

Think about it if you were to have a must have open on a stand a very large must have, and there's a page here and a page here and you're not touching anything and you're simply looking at this page and reading and then you go into record the new standard the new look at this page and you read then between the two sleeves after this theme, you pay turn the page, I'm just saying, I'm not trying to cause any issues but if you want to follow the math, have no problem. That's that's fine. That is the most happy position. Let me just say to that many of my modern Hanafi scholars friends of our times quite a number of them I know for a fact that they say to their congregations that look that's

01:00:37--> 01:01:15

the the more attempt or the the the standard position but especially given our circumstances and whatnot, a number of Hanafi scholars, especially in light of COVID 19 and the lockdown they're saying you know what, like let's follow Imam we use of Mohammed bin hasna che Barney's position that the Salah is you know so here it is valid to do that. But in any case that is your position what you want to follow I'm just telling you that this is one position the majority of the other scholars have said there is no problem in a normal circumstance How about now even more so you may pick up almost half or in our case an iPhone or whatever it is just gonna you know have the the the app on

01:01:15--> 01:01:55

and you may read it, it is enough for Salah anyway. And enough of Salah more emotions are allowed than a falsehood anyway, it's not anything that you know, this is the standard. But anyway, if you want to follow a position within your school, then hamdulillah I'm not going to ever ever, ever criticize following a standard method if you stick to that method consistently. But if you want my humble opinion, then really there is no problem. The point of tarawih is to read long end clear Quran that's the goal of Tarawa. And that's why Mr. Muhammad and others they explicitly said Imam Malik they explicitly said long claims and short searches those are better than than short PMS and

01:01:55--> 01:02:32

long search there's four taraweeh we don't necessarily want to make the stage this long. We want to make the the reciting long and we want to read as much Quran as possible. How is that going to happen if you're not to have failed, or even if you are and your health is weak, and you're not going to leading in then you know, there's very few people who's here with us that strong that they can read, you know, half a juicer juice. And that's why we admire and respect our fault so much that they are able to do this otherwise, most average could fault they are not able to do that quickly. They're going to take a long time. And that's why this concession is given that you may just read

01:02:32--> 01:03:11

from the most haven't suppose you are not to Hatfield, then in this case, you may read what you're familiar with, let's say Joe's AMA, or just the Bartok or whatever you may read from that no problem. Insha Allah Who to Allah, and with this Insha Allah, just a final reminder that really the purpose of all of today's q&a was to get us into the spirit and to remind us of the great necessity, really, of praying the Cleon will lay or the Tarawera during this upcoming month, and to rediscover the original spirit of clear Malay and Ramadan like our Prophet system and like the Sahaba themselves, they didn't pray it or were in his lifetime the way we do yes in Ramadan.

01:03:11--> 01:03:49

lifetime but by the way, even then, Roberto Katam himself would pray at home Aisha would pray at home they would pray at home because they understood praying at home to be better than praying in Jamar now in this month because of COVID 19. We are all praying at home. And because of this, let us insha Allah Who to Allah give extra attention, extra energy. Let us rediscover the spirit of Ramadan. Let us rediscover the spirit of clamor laid, let us pray if we can privately and if we're praying with our families, no problem. There's also some baraka and good in that, but even if we pray their families, this also tried to pray towards the end of the night. And let us make dua to

01:03:49--> 01:04:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala that he lives this communal punishment either from us that he lifts the rubber and Bella that he lifts this issue that we are facing now and that we can resume our lives back to normal having appreciated all of these blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us and insha Allah to Allah.
