Virgil, slow down. Lord Mowgli.
Zack Mullah here, Karissa, just a jud major entrance in Hungary a lot of I mean it's it's a blessing Gani that you joined us but * are you gonna stay with us? Yes. Hola Hola como because I have a few questions that show a lot of Lancome shipment is not going to lock in. So obviously learn hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah let's commence the program and start with
start with these hot questions. How many of the brothers Oh see we can't see the sisters. But how many of the brothers are going to be here in epic for Ramadan for the first time for the first time they never been an epic Ramadan
Masha Allah that's a good like 20% shift along with it, okay, so you're, you're, you're in for like an awakening shift. So it's gonna be something else. Not not to have them you know, but
We try to compete sometime do we share? We can I imagine that's impossible. But we try to get there and Sharla right in Baraka. So, speaking about buttercups, Ted, I want to I want to begin. So I'm going to be asking questions. And kind of like I'm seeing, I'm seeing this. So I'm going to start with a stat because it says, you focus on heart softeners, especially in Ramadan. Right, you know, says, you know, how many how many cardiologists do we have? How many heart doctors are there in the community? Anybody does heart surgeries, heart. You're all being humbled, and I know there's at least 15 of you
because they see your presence of stabbed, they're like, No, that's, that's the hardship right there. We're not We're not playing in Ramadan. Inshallah we want to focus on our hearts. But yes, I wanted to ask you one question now.
Just to kick it off and soften. Soften the hearts a bit before we begin.
So for all of us we know about Ramadan, right? We fast and we pray thoroughly, and it becomes like a routine but what makes Ramadan so significant that we need to take advantage of it. Right.
I'm gonna get Salam. Ala swindler, hamdulillah salatu, salam ala Rasulillah. Allah Muharram had run and now we are abandoning May Allah keep all this beautiful faces away from the hellfire, Amin, amin Aloha mobile living Ramadan, Allah humma the living out on Allama the Lebanon Ramadan agenda female assault you mean I don't know if you hear me I'll call you mean. John if he mean Otakar it can mean your hammer. I mean
like brother Murad said, we all know and we are all very excited
to welcome this great guest that comes once a year and this great guest is so light. Like Allah said a Yemen might do that just few days. He comes and drops the burqa, and then he leaves
and the smart and the wise one who is the one who takes advantage of every single moment. The smart and the wise one is the one who treats it as if it is actually it is his last and her last Ramadan.
or what are some of the things that will make us
more excited. I will mention three Hadith
and then came through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said are ATIA in Shaheed to Allah Ilaha illa Allah wa a Nikka rasool Allah was ALLAH to Salah wetlands was some to Ramadan Welcome to
well tea to cerca for min min inner
Imam then came to Rasulullah sai Salman said you're a sort of Allah. If I believe that there is no God worthy of worship except Allah and that You are the messenger of Allah and I pray my five daily prayers and I fast from a bong And subhanAllah is the only nebula here and I performed the pm of Ramadan I perform Tara we are also and I do my zakat.
Who will I be among
Cara Lee salatu salam Meena Siddiqui in our shahada
you will be among the righteous and the martyrs.
Keep that hadith in mind number one number two, the Hadith that we all know man sama Ramadan Iman and what he said then off here Allahu Mehta cut them in them they whosoever fast the month of Ramadan, with conviction with with Eman with faith and expecting the reward both together and expecting the reward from Allah azza wa jal all his previous sins are forgiven. Hadith number two, Hadith number three
so Allah Allah is sentiment the hadith is in telling me that he said in the first night of Ramadan, also we all know the Hadith and we're gonna hear it a lot. The doors and the gates of Jannah are open and the gates of hell are closed and and the Sharia team are chained and a color will say yeah, how you react to Bill
Well yeah, Barry is Shari Axl or DOER of good proceed. An order of evil stop, restrain. And then this is my shed. That's the last part of the Hadith.
When he left he oughta call Mina Naira with Lika the COO Lila
and Allah azza wa jal, handpick shorten people and that is
Every single night to be saved from the Hellfire every single night. Now let's put all the Hadith together. Why should we be so excited for Ramadan, I am so excited because I'm getting another opportunity to be amongst the masters. I am so excited because I have another opportunity for all my sins to be forgiven. And I am so excited because there's a huge possibility I want my name to be on the list.
So what else do you want forgiveness of sins?
Guaranteed out of the Hellfire. And among the martyrs, Allahu Akbar, one of them is enough. How about all three? So for the person who's really excited, he has to have all these three Hadith in mind. And he has to, and she has to work
with every possible grain in their body to earn all three.
So this is why you should we be excited. It's not just I'm going to be not eating and not drinking. We have to really go the extra mile long robotics stackable aka chef. So chef, I have a quick question about about one of the Hadith. And maybe I could direct a chef Yeah. So before I ask, should he answer the question. So when we say chef Eman and with the southern right with Eman with conviction and Allah and anti Serb and seeking the reward from Allah, knowing that Allah is going to reward me for this fest, you know, some people get into this mode shift that like, oh, Allah is never gonna forgive me. My sins are huge. And you know, I'm just, I'm doing it, but I'm an alpha.
And you know, so is it is it does that affect the sad part of the Hadith that allows forgiveness to
know this one should
we switch? I think we should switch to Hamza did I was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. who it was, I mean, well, I'm about to answer your question. In a quick and easy manner. There are levels of feeling guilt, there are levels of feeling fear. And certain levels of them are the essence of iman, when you have fear combined with hope, when you feel a sense of dread, along with a Zen sense of optimism that this is good. So you go through phases like one second, what if Allah doesn't forgive me the next second? No, no, Allah will forgive me. That is a good battle. And that is a healthy battle. Because you don't want to have the arrogance. I am forgiven. That's not right. Nor should
you have the despair, Allah will never forget. That's not right. Right. So the movement goes between the two vessels of hope and fear, you're hopeful and you are fearful together, and they must be simultaneous. However, if one of the two overcomes the other, then this is where danger begins. You must have them in a relatively similar amount. Now once in a while one might go a little bit more than the other in the daytime, you know, in 24 hours, maybe if we're praying to God, and you remember some since you've done and you feel a bit of despair, okay, that's healthy, but then at the end of the head job you're in such that you're like Allah I and I'm trying my best you know,
Inshallah, you're gonna forgive me that you have hope. So as long as the both of the brain being balanced in sha Allah, you're upon good. And this is the essence right? So you had your own home, Allah Benoit ahava, they are making dua to the Lord and hope and their fear. So between hope and fear. So the problem comes, as you said, when one of the two is neglected, and the other becomes the only or the dominant. And this is where shaytaan Oh, you open up the door for Shaitan to corrupt the reality of what it means to be a believer, Allah Tala Adam.
That's a good clarification. Because a lot of a lot of it, especially the young brothers and sisters ask these types of questions. But, uh, you know, those aren't the questions I prepared for you. Obviously, they're fiction, because that's, that's your specialization. So, I don't mean to get you in trouble, especially with a lot of the uncles, I
thank you for the discovery.
So I grew up. And for some reason, you know, when I was a kid, I distinctly remember when I was when we moved to philosophy, and for a couple of years.
For Fudger I heard 36 events, should you actually counted 36? Yeah, and I didn't know why. Because there's so many masajid around and they all had loudspeakers. So I didn't know which one was was that Infigen. So I would look outside, I'll keep eating and my mom was like, no stop at the first event, but it's like an hour and a half before
Fajr. So a lot of brothers and sisters asked this question. Like, what is up with the gap in Fudger that we have in Ramadan, that that doesn't exist?
Right now like right now 630s Then and then 645. We pray. But in Ramadan, there's this big, this big gap.
Jaya. Okay, so Bismillah
This is a very technical question. I'm going to try to summarize it. How long do I need to have? Because this is a technical question.
Four and a half minutes, four and a half minutes. Let's look at
the prophets Allah Allahu Allah he was sending them
told us that we're allowed to eat and drink until the phygital solder comes and not the vegetal, Cathy. There's two types of budget in the Hadith. You have the false dawn, and you have the true dawn. So he was asked what is the false dawn and what is the true dawn. So he was totally we were told about it, he answered that the false dawn, that there is a streak of light in the sky. And the true dawn, the light is horizontal. Okay, so the false dawn is vertical. And the true Dawn is horizontal. Now, very few of us have actually been in the desert without any lights without any architecture and seen how Fudger actually happens very few of us. I encourage you to watch videos so
that you understand. And I encourage you to study a little bit of you know, astronomy if you're interested to understand what's going on. Actually, from the perspective of astronomy, there's three Dawn's you have the civil world beginning you have the astronomical Dawn, then you have the nautical Dawn then you have the civil Dawn, okay, you actually have three Don's astronomical. The first is astronomical, then the next is nautical, then the next is civil, and each one occurs at a different angle. The Shetty I did not come with angles the process and did not say when the sun is 20 degrees, 19 degrees, 18 degrees. But he didn't come with that did he? He didn't give us a number. So our
later scholars beginning in the fifth century, when the science of astronomy became well known to the OMA and you know, we excelled in astronomy, when the science of astronomy became well known. So our astronomers have those early timeframes began trying to calculate prayer timings. And the first few to do so generally gave numbers like 18 1917 degrees below below the horizon. And these numbers were then replicated throughout the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth 10th century. So the majority but not all, the majority of medieval treatise is written about the timing of Fudger has a number around 18, right? Hence, people began to replicate these numbers and it became mainstream, many of the
calendars that you see therefore, take this number 1818 degrees below the horizon, and they say Fajr begins at this time.
And throughout the 70s and 80s. This was a pretty much normal, beginning in the 90s, people began to question Is it really a tin and throughout the world, lots of councils, especially Muslim countries that have astronomical societies, began doing their own research. And the field Council of North America, two years ago issued a detailed fatwa, I was asked to do research on this. So I read 15 papers written by various astronomical councils around the world, in Jordan, three in Saudi Arabia, one or two in Egypt, one in California, two in England, I read over 15, modern from the 90s. I mean, up until our times, you know, analyses by actual observers in the world today. And all of them said
18 is too much according to what we are seeing.
All of them said numbers between depending on where they were 1314 to like 16. So the number 18, we don't understand what measurements they were using their degrees, we don't understand it. It's there in our traditional not traditional meaning, early books, it's there any sixth century onwards, right? It's there. It's not in the Quran. Obviously, it's not in the Sunnah, but we find it early on. But there is a pushback from many modern field councils that this number doesn't make sense. And I have had many of my colleagues and friends I have not had the opportunity to go myself into the desert and observe with astronomical instruments. I mean, I've seen sunrise and sunset in the desert
but you know, you need an instrument and whatnot. I've never done that. But I haven't many of my colleagues and friends will have gone and they have told me on multiple occasions we're monitoring and it never once did we go beyond 16. Before we say we see the clear sign. So based on this the fifth Council of North America, which in my humble opinion is the oldest and largest and most mainstream body are filtered again it's up to you. They issued the fatwa that for the bulk of North America. 15 degrees is Manasa for Fajr okay, because of this the cow
Under we have an epic is 15 degrees. Now some of the massage would still go with the classical textbooks 600 years ago 18 degrees. So you will find a variation of 15 minutes 20 minutes. It's up to you. You understand now what's going on. In the end of the day the Shetty I did not come with the 15 or 18. The shady I said for the Federal solder. What is physical solder? Well, if you go to very ancient textbooks, you find 18. I challenge you to find any modern study done by qualified astronomers, right who have gone in the middle latitudes. We're not talking about extreme latitudes like Nora which is going to be even less by the way, that's even more we're talking about the middle
mainstream attitudes of the world. I challenge you and if you find something, please tell me because I haven't found anything of actual researchers going and saying it is 18 because of this our fatwa is that it is 15 degrees. And this is what our calendars are based on. Nonetheless, if you wish to be safe, and spend another 15 minutes not eating or drinking that is your prerogative. But realize and I'm being a little bit tiny, you know blunt here, you cannot expect everybody to have that level of extra Taqwa. This is a level of extra Taqwa that maybe your child is going to high school, you can't expect him to wake up half an hour earlier. You know, be fair to people and give concession
where the Shediac gives concession Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim our Prophet says and I'm said, do not let the Yvan of Bilal stop you from eating and drinking for he gives the amount too early. Go ahead and eat and drink until Ibn Al Maktoum gives the Athan. Now, even remember, Tim was blind and beloved in his eagerness would give them a little bit early. They say between the two events was 510 minutes. That's it? Okay. And the prophecies of Hadith visible Hinduism. He's telling us don't let the Adana Bilal stop you don't worry if you need to eat and drink. Go ahead until you're here at the event of Ibn omit Maktoum. And he would give the event because he's blind. He would wait for
somebody to come and say, Oh, I give the Athan, I see the white light, then he would go and give the exam because he doesn't there's no clock back then he can see he would wait for somebody to like come to him and say I can see the white light now go. So the Prophet system gave that concession now, should we make it the default that we keep on eating and drinking until exactly 651? Or whatever it might be? No, of course, add a few minutes and be some say, but suppose the alarm didn't go off. And there's five minutes left. Hollis take your five minutes no problem. You know, and in fact, so much. So Hadith isn't one of them after than others. The prophets have said, if one of you
is drinking, here's the event. Finish your SIP, then put the glass down. Yeah, neither *ty has come with some concession. Don't spit the water out and vomited out, come on, calm down. Yanni, the beginning of budget is not on the second, you understand the beginning of budget is a rough time, generic time. So the provinces have literally said if one of you has the glass in his hand, and you hear the Adan finish the SIP, finish your drink, and then put it down. Now we should intentionally hold the glass and wait. And as you know, don't play with the *tier. Right. But if it so happens that you wake up and there's 10 minutes left, you rushed down to the kitchen, and you take whatever
you can, no problem for that one day, go all the way until the very last minute no problem. And it is healthy, keep a few minutes gap as the default. If the time is any what is going to be 620 or something if it is then is Shalini 615, give a few minutes break just to be on the little bit extra safe side. But don't make this an act of worship and don't require the elderly or the sick or your children to be that strict. Let them take the concession until the time in the end of the day, as we said it's or even that even the 15 degrees. It's a rough time because it's not on this, you know on the second. So in the cello with this, I hope I've clarified in shell a
little bit. So yeah, of course our share of study reminds us that there should also be the baraka following the community, you know, so Hamdulillah we have, you know, the United timings here and hamdulillah so stick with the community Charlaine there's going to be extra baraka and it's a show. It's very informative. Well, I never I never heard a detailed, like breakdown about the subject, but it's something that's on the minds of many I'm sure it's over the head of many of the young kids, you know, he's going to be eating a samosa and in the daytime is like Chef, she also said 18 degrees, it's 32 degrees outside. I don't know what 20 Sakineh horizon he talks about something
completely different. But Alhamdulillah I think, chef now we began with missing missing out on something very important. So I saw some brothers leaving
but you need to hear this address from our board about the calendar that we prepared this Ramadan. As you know, Ramadan Alhamdulillah an epic, it's very organized, we try to make it we make everything accessible to the committee.
Unity everything is in front of you. We're going to have the calendar posted up it's gonna be on the website on the app and it's going to be right here for you to see going in and out.

I want to thank our children committee Marshal more than 350 students marshaling the Children program and again that are you know, in the back we are small size and shy and all of that stuff. So inshallah you know again, thank you so much. Just last thing before I go, is the parking because I know Ramadan is starting inshallah on Wednesday night and that's one thing we have heard again and again and again right any any discussion we go to any any party that we go to, it's all about
parking, and the crowd and all of this. So let's just quickly touch on the parking Alhamdulillah this year. We have of course our parking is here. We also have a parking at the police academy for the first 10 nights and the last 10 Nights. They have more than 300 spots at the police academy and Washington all of you who are the fragile crowd and Asia crowd no commercial on the front rows. I request you all please please all the volunteers please park at the police academy when you come early or even come late. Part of there is going to be much faster entrance much faster exit we have more than 300 spots and then you can come in through the medina villas does Arcola to Medina villas
community HOA and also under those through Medina we have now a door so when you park on the Police Academy site you can just enter through the door is going to be all lighted that parking space that that that lawn that we have that space is going to be lighted inshallah you can walk and I promise you that if you park in the front is going to be a shorter walk through police academy then it's going to be at the front of the masjid so again please please please park at the police academy also we have extra space across the street between the church and that apartment complex. We have a small shopping plaza we have more than 100 spots there. We're going to be short running shuttles both from
police academy and from the
strip mall that shopping plaza. So please park there and show do you have the space here? Try to do as much as carpooling you know all of this, try to follow the volunteers inshallah we are trying our best to make this experience inshallah as blezard as safe as possible Inshallah, again, I will give you more details Inshallah, on the night of there is a lot of other stuff security and all other stuff that inshallah I want to discuss with you. Today is not a time mashallah we have a good program going on. Again, lastly, we have this calendar that we did just like last year, everything that you want to know what's happening at Epic during Ramadan. It's right here. Just on the way out,
pick up one copy for your family. We have limited copies just pick up but it has everything. So just pick it up, inshallah you'll get to know what's going on with that Chef mirages aka Salaam Alaikum
hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen See that was informative. Yeah.
everybody needed to hear that inshallah to Allah.
But we don't want to cut the program of shiksa I know, you recited and you blessed our ears with hearing the recitation of, of the Holy Quran Surah Al Baqarah and certain Kedah know, you know, you gave us a little glimpse of Ramadan to be honest, because I was praying. When I prayed, I prayed in the second row, and I saw all the kids squeezing and pushing and shoving the uncles. I'm like, This is how Ramadan feels. hamdulillah everyone who knows epic Ramadan, you know, there's always there's always the kid that gets to the spot of the uncle before the uncle. And then and then there's like this little thing going on, but hamdulillah the uncles are, are nice here. You know, may Allah
Subhana Allah bless them. They're not like those grumpy uncles that you see the non hamdullah the epic uncles or uncle 2.0 They're good uncle.
So and then listening to the citation shifts.
I want to ask what
as a curry, you know, hamdullah we have a lot of cola and perhaps some that are going to lead in other massage and
when is the best time to review Quran in Ramadan before you leave the
so you ask what is the best time and the best time for the cleric who wants to recite in taraweeh The best time to recite so his voice doesn't scratch up so he doesn't burn himself out. But his memory stays sharp. I think the best time is before
and after further
in the morning time Yeah. Because of the baraka Quran and forgery in the Quran Virtual Academy I review after once we done for Dharavi I review after the drug for the next night. Okay, yeah. Okay. Jeff, is there any is there any like, look, by the way, this might be a I heard about it. I don't know if it's true, because I'm not a coder myself. Is there a particular drink like some concoction or something that Ducati drinks that makes his voice and his chest kind of open up like honey ginger? I don't everybody says that but I do it chicken it scratches my voice all the time. So nothing's been working for him
it's a secret recipe.
At least can we sell it
generating revenue there's no special thing for me I just prevent myself not to drink cold water and sour something you know. So it's not
it's not I have the pink
because I was thinking
that stuff is too sweet to be beneficial. But so hamdulillah
sha Allah to Allah hot water with honey is hot water with with honey guys are going to record that in Sharla for the Cadiz Shaco salmon you're leading an Allen right by
Charles does now how
everyone's wondering you know this is Ramadan it's gonna come it's gonna go but from now how do I plan to make this my best Ramadan ever?
How do I plan to make this my best Ramadan ever?
I want every single one of us to put on his background on his phone. This is going to be my best Ramadan.
And every day you look at it and you say this is going to be my best Ramadan.
And when you see that every single day and you see that you're not doing much you say how could this be my best Ramadan and I'm still all I'm doing is just stopping eating and drinking and then we'll push you to do something else.
even a seven year old there stuffing tutoring to drink and eat.
There has to be something special that you are going to give up this Ramadan. Please if you want to have a productive and really to make the best Ramadan, honestly make a list I'm not gonna exaggerate two things that you want to add to your list and two things that you are going to give up this Ramadan hint social media
I guarantee you that you will survive.
You will make it without social media for real shares. I tried to talk okay.
You will make it be in the law because it's so distracting or you don't want to go cold turkey just maybe dedicate half an hour 45 minutes that's it and then you stop literally you stop whatever you think that you are behind or you feel like you're sitting in stop it and Ramadan. Maybe you're addicted to smoking maybe Allah Allah
You watch things or stop it, stop it and Ramadan and beg Allah during every single night here Allah helped me quit forever. Let Ramadan be the start and one thing rather than rather let me
one of the goals I would like to
add to my list and I would really love to see every single one of us add it to his list is to leave Ramadan with better manners
with better manners.
If you need the Hadith, of the reward of good manners with Allah, He will blow your mind.
The heaviest I'm going to go through them very quickly the heaviest thing in the scale on the Day of Judgment, the most beloved to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one with the best of manners. The closest to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is the one with the with the best of manners. And as I am I guarantee it housing Jana, to the one with the best of manners. Allah loves the people with the best of manners, ecumenical Eman and the ones with the most perfect Eman are the one with the best of manners.
We drive 60 degrees 60 miles in the pile in the parking lot going flying and bothering and maybe hitting some brothers and sisters. So we commit a sin to come and catch us on
where's your o'clock? You just finished praying tahajjud and praying pm and then you go outside and you fight with the brother for the parking. But what did you get from this Quran and from this cram
manners Jaquan manners with your parents manners with your spouse, manners with your spouse. Give your wife some time in this Ramadan give her some time to concentrate on her a brother
while my sister is preparing a nice dish for you. And she's making the intention that she is feeding a fasting person and she is getting the reward of everybody who ate also dedicate you say you know what? Is half an hour 45 minutes honey, go and read some Quran go do something maybe I'll take care of the children. They are Muslims too. They are fasting too. So please, please, let's perfect as much as we can. Our manners if we can leave with better manners. You are a person that gets angry quick. Try to control your anger in this month. You are a person even as soon as I said I'm told us if somebody puts you do not reply just say in the song. I am a fasting person. Ramadan is supposed
to change something. Do not expect to become a turkey without going out of your comfort zone. Some of us have fasted 20 3040 Ramadan's and he's still the same guy. Nothing has changed. This Ramadan is going to be different. This is going to be my best Ramadan and there's no way it will be my best Ramadan and I am doing exactly the same thing I did last year how I was gonna be my best it's gonna be the same not the best. If you want it to be the best Ramadan you have to introduce new things and give up a few things
well Allah We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the best of o'clock Allah clock is the source ship you know a lot of a lot of you know you know it's kind of spread out and there's like videos about it and stuff floating around people joke about it, like oh, these are Ramadan fights, like you know, like two hours before breaking the fast and whatnot. Oh, I'm angry Oh, I'm fasting leave me alone like you know that that's haram right there you know like that's completely against the sooner the purpose of fasting right? It's it opposes Tekla Structures, so I think we should get rid of that type of language. You know, like, oh, leave me alone. I'm fasting. I can't I got a headache. You
know, that type of talk that you hear sometimes? Well, I it's just it's counterproductive reminded me
2005 I was in Dubai. I was I stayed there for a while. And then it was Ramadan. And the worst thing in the Gulf and I'm sure the chef can confirm is to go to any government department Ramadan.
Of course, Yanni.
I want to renew a license or something. It was just one one o'clock. Everybody's frowning. Everybody's angry. I came when I get to the line. He said we closed. I said it says closer to he said Yeah, I need to I need to
I need to
do the only one 115
I thought he was joking. I'm expecting him to say, you know, it's a joke. He was furious. He was so don't you know I'm fasting. I'm fasting
what does it have to do with renewing the license? So this is just to confirm any any
Stan medic FICO she
so now now the question is talking about like this doesn't break the fast right man let me I got the prophesy centum said Mila Mia, that code is zero for the hydrilla Ania that promotion. Right? So whoever doesn't leave any ill talk, right or lying or so on, then you know Allah doesn't need them to stop eating and drinking, right? Nothing doesn't benefit a lot. But
what actually breaks the fest is a question what actually breaks the fast a lot of times we get the same question show the asthma the asthma things you know, injections and so on so forth. What toothpaste you know, we get the question called GI and the different. There's no toothpaste, hemp toothpaste, you know,
like what breaks the first year. J It's so in terms of committing sins, like saying things you shouldn't say seeing things shouldn't see losing your temper. These affect the reward of the fast, but they don't break the validity of the fast. And it is because of the sins that we have as a cultural fit. We thank Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us an automatic cleansing mechanism, that we feel guilty, we must feel guilty, we should feel guilty that we weren't perfect in Ramadan. And we did things we said things we looked at things we should not do our fasting. So Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, Allah has legislated zip codes will fit or the cattle fitter is meant to be a Farah
for these types of generic minor sins that are done throughout the month and are hamdulillah for that. So it doesn't invalidate the fast but it hurts the throw up unless we repent and we give the gospel in which case Insha Allah, we hope that Allah will forgive will get the fruitful Egypt, what actually breaks the fast. Of course, a number of things break the fastest, it's not a comprehensive class. But very briefly, the most obvious thing is to intentionally eat or drink. We all know that if it's accidental, then it is forgiven, but to intentionally eat or drink or to be intimate with one spouse, or to cause intimacy even by oneself. So this is what breaks the fast. Now there's a
gray area that a lot of people always ask questions about and that is, for example, putting eyedrops eardrops for medication. The person who has
to has to take insulin shots, for example, diabetes, for example, asthma, for example, breathing and whatnot. And again, if you look at the evolution of these fatawa, throughout the 70s and 80s, there was a bit of a controversy. But by and large these days, the majority of global fifth councils including the largest field Council in the world, which is the imaginary filter, which is a part of the Robertson Ireland Islami, which is in Makkah over 300 Roma across the globe, this is the largest field Council of the globe, they have a very detailed fatwa about all of these issues to summarize Alhamdulillah, none of them break the fast except for one thing, and that is if you take an
injection, that is meant to give you energy a glucose shot, right, you want to cheat the fast, right? Otherwise, any normal injection that you do for when you go to the doctor is going to cause something to have numb over here, or they're going to take a test or something these you're not doing in order to eat and drink, you're not doing this to get but there, if somebody were to it's not common, but if somebody were to say, Oh, I'm gonna get some energy by just putting in some, you know, glucose shot in the blood, obviously, you're kind of defeating the purpose of fasting, right? Otherwise, by and large, nothing breaks the fast including asthma sprays, the correct position is
that it is gaseous, it is not liquid, and you are allowed in very tropical climates, right? If you go to the Far East, for example, even some places here, I mean, the The air is so humid, right? If you breathe, you're not breaking your fast, just because the percentage of air the percentage of water is more. So the asthma is higher concentration of gaseous liquid, it's not actual liquid, and you don't drink asthma. So it's not considered to be liquid. And the same goes for eardrops. Now, there is a bit of an issue with the eyedropper or the ear canal. It doesn't connect to the throat so if you take ear drops, you'll never get there but the eye canal does connect to the throat. So the
issue comes if you were to feel the substance in your throat, this is definitely problematic. And so a lot of scholars say try to avoid eyedrops not because I dropped themselves break the fast but if the eye drops traveled through the glands, which in some people will
happened because you know basic anatomy here, the eyedrops are connected to the throat. So it is very possible. And it's very common that if you put too much liquid, that it will, you know, be felt in the throat. And if it gets to the throat, then it's too late. So, eye drops, there is actually the fatwa basically says that it should be discouraged if you really must, and you take a small minimal amount and you don't feel it in your throat, you're fine, but you're playing because if you do feel it in your throat, then it is liquid because that is actual liquid going there. As for the pill, again, some people have different types of pill, the pill that goes under the tongue and it's
supposed to dissolve for some medicinal issue. Again, we're not talking about you know, a pill that's supposed to give you energy boost right or your caffeine, you're you're addicted to coffee, you you have a coffee pill, you put a note we're talking about that. We're talking about medicinal pills, the medicinal pill that you put under the tongue and it is absorbed by the tongue, realize the mouth, putting water in the mouth does not invalidate the fast and Chemically speaking physically speaking, when you do multimodal, you will have molecules of water left in your mouth. It is like physically impossible. If you know your physics and chemistry it's impossible that you're
not going to have some droplets of water that you do not detect. And it is marked for when I do this for given to Shetty i does not call you to task for in fact the prophets as Sam said, Do mob mother Aniston shop perfectly unless you're fasting then do it, not fully do it half. And you don't go all the way all the way in do a little bit but still do it. The fact that he told us to do more than that instant shock even when we're fasting demonstrates liquid that goes into the mouth and then out of the mouth does not break the fast and liquid that goes into the nose and out of the nose does not break the fast. And therefore because of this the fifth Council the fatwa Council, the measurement
of fealty has said if you must take a medicinal tablet that you put under your tongue, and it dissolves in the tongue does not break the fast because what breaks the fast is what is swallowed inside. Okay, so this deals with asthma, it deals with all types of injections. Also as well, by the way, surgeries as well, that if you're going to be put unconscious for a surgery for minor or major surgery, whatever, as long as you have the knee Yeah. When the fast began that you're going to be fasting, then it is it does not break the fast and obviously I don't have any surgery that's like 24 hours or something but obviously if there was such a surgery that would be Janjua forgiven for that
day and obviously no problem. And by the way, there is no hydrogen this religion, if you must do a type of surgery that is important for your health, not though due to life and death, but still something that is significant then and if you must break your fast because of it then that is exactly what Allah says in the Quran from an canon Medela or NSF and very determined and this is exactly what Allah says, you read our chef sir as we recited regarding the fast Allah says you read the law Hobbico Nusrah while I read the the commercial so suppose you have to have some major surgery, it's not life and death but you know, the reality is scheduling is not easy. And if you say
no to one day they might give you two months later it's gonna cause how to junior life the Shetty is not meant to make your life difficult go ahead and schedule and if you're able to fast with the surgery, no problem and if your doctor says no, no, you must drink this and you must do this then okay. It is has to be done. If you cannot do it in the evening, which of course in America you cannot do that haircut the road you will be considered a person who has legitimate excuses and sick unless it is a surgery that is completely and it's like you know, cosmetic or something, then of course you cannot do that. But if it is health related, if it is something that has to do with the
ease of your living, you know, if it's painful tooth extraction Subhanallah Go ahead, do what needs to be done, and you are forgiven for that. Inshallah I think I've answered most of the other ones if there's any other issue. Toothpaste, no, no, I answer toothpaste because it because of the toothpaste. It doesn't go into the throat. As long as it doesn't go into the throat you are fine. Now, if you don't want to use toothpaste when using miswak, it is better for you. No question about that. But again, I'm being honest, many of us are not accustomed to miswak number one, number two, for those of us that have a job that deals with being in close proximity to pre people, and we
realized that we weren't might have an odor in our breath for example, there is no hemorrhage but be extra careful that when you use the toothpaste, you do not allow it to go underneath the HELOC. And it's very easy to do actually. And by the way, I used to do this although I was a professor for many years and I'm with the students or whatnot. I would use toothpaste these days and Hamdulillah I don't need to do that. But I understand and I don't see a problem and this is again the fact that because by unanimous consensus, water in the mouth does not break the fast. You're supposed to put water in the mouth when you do old
So toothpaste in the mouth does not break the fast but making it underneath the HELOC right swallowing it in is what breaks the fast. So you have to be extra conscious and make sure that you do not allow it to go into the throat and you are finding Shama. So, quick questions just a yes, no, you know
with the toothpaste thing, I didn't think people actually ate toothpaste until like, we had a blowout. And we had like a bunch of college guys here. I told him you ate onions. How are you gonna pray? They're like, God, just do you have toothpaste? I'm like, Yeah, I just, they're like, yeah, they took the toothpaste. They started putting in their mouth and they all just rubbed it and swallowed it. I'm like, kill you guys eating like candy. Like yeah, we've been doing it our whole lives. I'm like, I'm done. So it is possible to have people eat that. But quick question now this is for specially for the sisters that cook we're not tasting food, just tasting on the tongue. Does it
break the fast? It does not break the fast. No. Okay. Number two, somebody ate a fat so most of her friends who have fat similar, that's the most any got stuck in between their teeth. And then they're praying, fidget playing around their mouth and then oak. There's like a big chunk of the samosa and they swallow it in Fajr. Right? What does that break the first year, please?
a lot of people,
it's going to impact lives. Start by juicing, if it's spicy, it has one ruling. If it's non spicy.
If it was swallowed intentionally, it will break the fast. It will break the fast accidentally didn't realize it. And it's accidental. It wasn't done constant, there will be a collapse in this issue.
In my humble opinion, it will not break the fast but somebody will say will break the fast because you swallowed something sweat, because you will the argument can be made you were careless here. This is different than accidental. This is different than you pass by a water fountain in your corporation and you completely forget assembled on and your habit is to just take a water and do it. This is different than that. So, bottom line, make sure that you do not mother before you come to friendship, make sure there's nothing left and this is the perfect time to brush your teeth before Fajr is the perfect time to floss your mouth before budget. Definitely avoid it. And there would be
an argument a lot of scholars would say we'll break the fast and it's just definitely better to not go there. So on the note of the fat samosa, we're having different shows now. And then was called the time came and it's not finished yet. You said the bottle of water we're drinking? Can you suppose the US is water on some more center on some as well? Or on foodshed Yaffe don't don't play with the Shediac the Prophet says that the Prophet SAW Selim gave a concession leave it as the concession he didn't say prepare the cup and wait for the Adan to be called so you can make no he gave us the scenario that is the most realistic that you have the cup in your hand and you are
drinking then you hear the advantage even when we walk into him right you don't have to spit out the water Have some mercy finish the sip and then put it down in fact
Yeah, they didn't have the yeah so they didn't have the reality of we do have knowing the timing as well right. But you're if you're going to abuse this that Oh 631 I'm going to be mashallah stuffing my mouth and then when it's 631 I'm going to swallow whatever's in my mouth you know you're really pushing the boundaries so we should teach our children as well that look and eat until you know at least maybe two minutes before but keep a minute or two as a safety factor shallow so no there's no chaos on eating fat samosas you know up until the last second light doesn't work that way.
Too quick, quick, rapid. They also involve fat so
I got over that colors. I don't think you had hoped on it. But I'm not gonna have a single fat samosa my whole entire we have two witnesses, bro. We got 200 witnesses.
If anybody sees Murad have a fat samosa there's going to be a penalty not on me.
On Twitter show fat similar somewhat odd, okay, that's the deal. That's a loss. Okay, hashtag fetch the most hashtag Flatsome was a moron because he got it. You know, you're the one that put it on your shirt, put my name on it put smoothie. You know that smoothie. Okay. So delicious. Chef. So now, somebody, somebody thinks it's still not fidget. They continue to eat and they realize that, you know, Fajr had passed already 30 minutes ago and they don't know x is still faster. Excellent question. This is a classical controversy amongst the form of
lots of arguments back and forth. You want me to give this simplistic, simple, simple answer. Okay. There is a difference between
there is no easy. You have to get into technicalities here. There's three opinions. There's three opinions
there's three opinions right?
Even Taymiyah says this is they've been sent me a fatwa. The Prophet says that I'm said, Allah azza wa jal has forgiven from my ummah, what they do accidentally. So even to me as fatwa, both the Fajr and the Iftar, but the Sahaba and the Iftar, if a genuine mistake is made, you are forgiven, it is a minority opinion, that humbly and many schools make a distinction between Fajr and Margaret Margaret, why, because Fajr the default is you can eat and drink. So if you woke up the default is you can eat and drink. And so you are a little bit careless, that's going to be overlooked. But mohareb, the default is before motive, you're not eating and drinking. So you need to raise the bar
for motive. So this is actually the position of the humbleness and many others. And then the Malik is an unbelievable Hanafuda don't quote me on that. They say how you ate and you want it to break the fast. This isn't like accidental, like accidental means you didn't realize you're fasting. In this case you ate thinking you're not fasting, right? And so they would say no, you still have to pass the day as basically because of the sanctity of the one and you need to make it up. These are the three opinions. Yanni I don't want to give you a buffet to pick and choose but follow your method in this regard, follow your method follow Tada, whatever they follow your mothership even
Taymiyah. Okay, I follow up and Jamie has because to me the process of hadith is very clear that if you made a genuine mistake, you're not playing okay? You made a genuine, it has happened to me that for whatever reason, you look at the clock, and you think it's 430 when it said 530 Whatever it might be right. And you just think 430 How you go down Hollis, you know? And then you look at the watch and you're like, Oh, it wasn't 430 it was 530 Right? And you're eating half of your thought that big fat samosa right. And you made a mistake. In my humble opinion, I follow this photo of even Tamia because it's very beautiful Hadith process and this authentic ID raffia. And Almighty Allah
has raised the column from whatever my ummah does not want to see and they do it by mistake and they do it out of accident. So it's the NIA that counts here, and Allahu Allah, but that's my own
and now inshallah so I know how much are we going to recite every record in during during Ramadan during
Ramadan Shala around one page Baraka around what are we going to do the whole continuation in Fudger? Yes, inshallah we'll do so.

Nobody heard about well, I don't know about it. I'm just asking. But there's always something Yeah, inshallah there is a beautiful series that was supposed to play the trailer but I don't think it's already

So look forward for very Yes. Okay. So we're going to I don't know if they're going to bring their screen down.

She has her in the meantime. Do we have do we have this year? I know we did the Quran Tafseer series last year. What are we doing two years ago two years ago last year we did the

So we got a we got a lot of competition this year. Should we could do another video we're gonna do another video we're gonna come out with with something bigger than the goat and shells
to time the screen goes down one
uh one kid asked me the other day he said chef, do you stop fasting in the beginning of the event or the end of that?
That's a nice one. I said if it depends if that is five minutes in the beginning
our kids are you know they have those funny questions because they want to keep eating and eating especially like when they are seven and eight and nine. They just want to keep eating until they someone tells them to stop and
me, Ms de Heaton doll Seanie when she
told me what to feed
it with the feels cool Ruby to me. Jenny dasa, down to
