00:00:56--> 00:01:17

Welcome to the show of Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir I'm your host Yousef chambers and today we will be discussing the topic, common errors committed by Muslims during the month of Ramadan. So, without further ado, let's ask the first question of Dr. Zakir Naik. Dr. Zakir

00:01:18--> 00:01:26

what are the reasons behind Muslims continually falling into these same errors? Ramadan after Ramadan

00:01:27--> 00:02:00

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while Oliver savage min The main reason that Muslims keep on committing the same errors in the month of Ramadan regarding rules and regulation of fasting is lack of knowledge of the deen of religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the major reason for this lack of knowledge is because most of the Muslims, they do not read the Word of Allah subhanaw taala did not read the Quran with understanding.

00:02:01--> 00:02:08

Neither do they read the Hadith, the authentic things of the last and final messenger Prophet

00:02:09--> 00:02:35

was the Muslim should do is read the Quran with understanding, read the sayings of the Prophet and the seed of the Prophet, then inshallah, at least we will have the basic knowledge of our Deen including the rules and regulations of fasting. And Allah subhanho wa Taala. He always opens up his pathway. He gives guidance to the Muslims but there is a criteria termed as a guide. Allah says in the Quran

00:02:36--> 00:03:08

in surah, uncovered, Chapter 29 was the most 69 that those who strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Those who do jihad feasable Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala opens his pathways for them to the criteria for us to get the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala the criteria for us where Allah subhanaw taala will open up our pathways is to strive in this way to do justice, Allah. And Allah says in the Quran in surah, Chapter 16

00:03:10--> 00:03:21

verse 43, as well as for the ambia chapter number 21 verse number seven, Allah says, first Alou holistically in quantum law, which means, if you do not

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

possess or if you doubt,

00:03:25--> 00:03:32

then ask the person who possesses the knowledge. If you doubt anything, ask the person who's knowledgeable.

00:03:33--> 00:03:52

And hamdulillah. We have in oma several Muslims who are scholars in this team. So it's our duty to ask these scholars, these people who have the knowledge of Islam, regarding the rules and regulations of our Deen

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

as far as

00:03:55--> 00:04:41

fastings concern, which is one of the important Pillars of Islam, every Muslim should know, at least, when is the time for fasting? What are the basic rules and regulation. And today, in the age of science and technology, it's very easy to find. It is only the negligence of a Muslim that makes them unaware of these things. It's very easy to know when is the time for fasting windows fast begin the day before? When is the time for a start for breaking the fast? What are the things that break the fast etc etc. It is mainly due to the negligence and ignorance of the Muslims that we regularly keep on falling and committing the same mistakes. Furthermore, what are the common errors that are

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

made by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan.

00:04:45--> 00:05:00

The common errors committed by the Muslims in the month of Ramadan can be broadly classified into four categories. The first category is the common errors committed by Muslims regarding the obvious

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Gayatri rules and regulations of fasting.

00:05:03--> 00:05:13

The second category is the common errors committed by Muslims which are contradictory to the Sunnah of fasting.

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

The third category

00:05:16--> 00:05:19

is the errors committed by Muslims, mainly

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

due to neglecting the obligated duties in Islam and

00:05:26--> 00:05:29

indulging in Acts which are prohibited.

00:05:30--> 00:05:35

And the fourth category is the other common errors committed by Muslims in the month of Ramadan.

00:05:37--> 00:05:47

Clearly, Dr. Zakir, it's going to be difficult for us to discuss all of the common errors made by Muslims during the month of Ramadan

00:05:48--> 00:06:45

in this one interview, but over the next 32 days, we will inshallah try to cover those issues, but could you just state or list the most grievous mistakes made by Muslims in the month of Ramadan? As far as the common errors that fall in the first two categories? inshallah we'll be discussing in detail in the next inshallah 30 days, I will, inshallah speak about the common errors committed in the third and fourth category. Before we discuss categories three and four, can we at least list the most common errors from sections one and two, the most grievous amongst the errors in the first category, that is errors committed regarding the obligatory rules and regulations of fasting is the

00:06:45--> 00:07:37

most common is that Muslims, many times, they don't do the Nia for fasting. intention is very important. Without Nia, without intention, the fasting is not accepted. So making intention is obligatory, and we've been discussing this inshallah, in detail in shelter model. The second error is that many times, Muslims, even after the fudger, Amazon has started, yet they continue eating, and they think that the end of suhoor time is only at the end of the other. In fact, the moment the fire alarm starts, the moment the beginning of dawn starts, the soul time ends. So, this is error, which normally nullifies or invalidates the first,

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

the third error in the first category is that many people, they delay paying, there's a calculator

00:07:47--> 00:07:51

and many times they pay after the illustrator,

00:07:52--> 00:08:17

Salah, if we pay the processor after illustrator, then it is like normal charity, it does not come under this accosted. So, these three are the most grievous in the first category, the common errors committed in the second category, that is errors that are contradicting the sooner of the fasting is number one.

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

Many people they skip this over

00:08:22--> 00:08:42

some people, they have an early server, that is they have just over one or two hours before the budget time in fact, so here is a blessing, every Muslim should have it and the Prophet said we should delay the school as much as possible, we will have it till just before the project time.

00:08:44--> 00:09:04

The third mistake committed by Muslims in this category is that they delay opening they fast they delay the thought and a profit muscle awesome said that the people will be good as long as they hasten in breaking data. That means immediately after sunset, they should make data.

00:09:06--> 00:09:14

The fourth common error in this category is that many Muslims they read unauthentic dua

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

during

00:09:17--> 00:09:21

the most authentic dua as far as the status concern is

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

Zahava sama, Papa Lu

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

was

00:09:28--> 00:09:31

inshallah which means that

00:09:32--> 00:09:36

my thirst is quenched, the veins are moistened

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

and

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

the other is near.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

inshallah, God willing, the reward is new, God willing.

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

And some people when they read this, for breaking the fast, they say it before breaking the fast

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

before they put the date in the mouth, they say this and it is contrary to the meaning

00:10:00--> 00:10:27

The meaning says that my thirst has been quenched. zabba sama waka Lottie ruku my thirst has been quenched and the way they've been moisten, your thirst cannot be quenched before breaking the earth. phenomenally it should be said, after you do after your water and you're satisfied, maybe After some minutes after you break the fast then you can eat this door as the habit sama cappelletti ruku

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

inshallah, which means

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

my toast had been quenched, the Weigh ins have been nice and

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

the reward is new, inshallah, God willing.

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

The sixth

00:10:41--> 00:10:51

common error made by Muslims in this category is that many Muslims, they eat excessively during Easter, and many of them even eat throughout the night.

00:10:52--> 00:11:15

The seventh common error is that many of them, they are negligent as far as traffic is concerned, because traffic is not a fourth, they think it is no problem. If a Muslim misses taraweeh doTERRA is not a foul. It is a very important sun. And a Muslim who misses Dharavi is missing a great deal of reward.

00:11:17--> 00:11:51

And many Muslims, who perform Dharavi the return of a very fast and mighty sparra they try and finish it in a short time and the defeat the purpose. In fact, you should read with a moderate pace that people understand and they craft the message of Allah subhanaw taala. The ninth common error is that those who go for a gaffe in the mosque, many of them they socialize during ethica as though it's a time to meet people and friends, which is totally contrary to the Sunnah.

00:11:52--> 00:12:02

The 10th common error is that many of the Muslims think that the laser cutter is on the 27th night of Ramadan

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

and they only worship Allah subhanaw taala on this night. In fact, a beloved prophet Salaam said

00:12:10--> 00:12:58

search for the lead recovered in the odd nights of the last 10 days, the last Ashura the 10 days therefore, let's recover can fall either on the 21st night or 23rd or 25th or 27 or 29th. So, this is one the common errors made by Muslims. The 11th common error is that they spend their time during Ramadan in unproductive work, rather than spending in zeker. And worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. They spend the time rather for offering besides the compulsory Salah, the novel, the voluntary Salah de la sala, the 12th error made by the Muslims is that they should have

00:13:00--> 00:13:04

the 13th is they should ask for forgiveness, this month of forgiveness.

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

For this, they should read the Quran as much as possible.

00:13:10--> 00:13:24

To get the rest of the last minute Allah, the 15th is that they fast and they keep themselves hungry. But basically, they're not mentally prepared for the fast

00:13:25--> 00:13:32

and it is as though they're staying hungry. But the main purpose of fasting to acquire Taka is not obtained.

00:13:34--> 00:13:44

This was in brief regarding the second category. Can you mention briefly again, categorize the common errors made in the third category.

00:13:45--> 00:13:59

The common errors committed by Muslims in the third category, that is errors regarding negligence. In performing the fluoride, WTF in Islam is that Muslims

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

many of them, they stay awake all night.

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

They have early soccer and

00:14:09--> 00:14:10

these people

00:14:11--> 00:14:16

they do not offer the father Salah. Missing father Salah is a sin.

00:14:18--> 00:14:33

Many of them because they stay with the full night. They sleep the full day and they even miss the Zohar, and they offer Salah which is a grave sin. They're trying to acquire blessings and you're neglecting the obligatory duties which is totally prohibited.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

Many of the Muslims

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

they will not give Zakat those are supposed to be soccer. And soccer is one of the pillars of Islam in which every Muslim who has a saving of the nisab level. That is those who have a savings of 85 grams of gold. They should give 2.5% of their savings. Every lunar year in charity. It's called a socket

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

The fourth error. And the third category is that most of the Muslim gives a crap, but they do not calculate the Zakat properly.

00:15:10--> 00:15:40

As far as common errors committed by Muslims or a man, that is indulging in private acts. The most common is though these acts are prohibited for a Muslim, irrespective whether it's a month of Ramadan and Ramadan. But specifically, we should be more careful, we should be careful trying to avoid these acts for the life. But in Ramadan, we should be more careful. And the most common number one, the Muslims involve themselves is backbiting and slandering.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

backbiting is a great sin.

00:15:45--> 00:15:55

And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, Chapter 14, verse number 12, that those who backbite they are people who eat the dead meat of the own brother,

00:15:57--> 00:16:04

to backbiting and slandering is one of the grievous sins. The second common error in this category is

00:16:05--> 00:16:12

Muslims, many of them, they use for speech, that allies bring them under from

00:16:14--> 00:16:19

the third is they use abusive language,

00:16:20--> 00:16:23

which is contrary to spirit of Islam. And from

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

the 40s they use vulgar language.

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

And the fifth, they involve themselves in gossiping,

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

the 60s

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

some of them involved in force action,

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

the 70s many of the Muslims

00:16:43--> 00:16:49

to kill time, they listen to music, and understanding songs,

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

which is totally private and so

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

the eight common error is

00:16:57--> 00:17:15

many of the Muslims to kill time they watch an Islamic television programs and an Islamic movies. The ninth common error taught by Muslim is that many of the Muslims, they read an Islamic magazines and Islamic books and some pictures,

00:17:16--> 00:17:20

which are private in Islam, the 10th common error

00:17:21--> 00:17:30

that Muslims and this month is many of them, they go to an Islamic sites on the internet, which is again prohibited

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

the 11th common error is that they

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

spend excessively

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

and they commit extravagance

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

and that was this, there is a lot of wastage of food. So this was in brief regarding

00:17:51--> 00:18:01

the list of mistakes done by persons commonly in the third category, that is indulging in Acts which are prohibited and neglecting acts which are first in Islam.

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

So does exactly what are the other common errors committed by Muslims during the month of Ramadan.

00:18:08--> 00:18:21

The other common errors covered by Muslims in the month of Ramadan. The third category is number one is that many of the Muslims, they stay awake the full night and then the sleep in the day.

00:18:22--> 00:18:31

And they do the normal activity, the nighttime and sleep in the daytime. They're converting day into night and 900 a day and the whole purpose of fasting is defeated.

00:18:32--> 00:18:56

The second error in this category is that many of the Muslims they remain lazy and inactive during the daytime, which is contrary to the spirit of fasting. The third common error is that many of the Muslims they try and kill their time during the day by playing

00:18:57--> 00:19:02

by amusement by games, which defeats the purpose again

00:19:03--> 00:19:13

the foot common error is Muslims, they give lavish Iftar parties and they spend a lot of money merely trying to Shroff

00:19:15--> 00:19:46

the fifth common error many of the Muslims, they ask the woman folk in the family to prepare a variety of dishes for Easter and Passover. Thus making the woman in the family spend the majority of the time in the kitchen. In fact, the family should spend most of the time in women and last but not Allah and if the woman folk do more do us inshallah, even the men will benefit even this will be forgiven inshallah.

00:19:48--> 00:19:53

The sixth common error is that many of the Muslims, they renovate

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

the house and they shop in the month of Ramadan. Spend more time in that then

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

miming Allah subhanaw taala the seventh common error is that many of the Muslims

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

they spend their nights instead of removing Allah subhanaw taala in activities which are unproductive, for example,

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

they spend the time

00:20:19--> 00:20:30

in excessive socializing after tarawih. There's a massive many of the Muslims, they spend many nights and most parts of the nights in shopping.

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

The 10th common error is many of the Muslims, they spend most of the time in the night anything.

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

The 11th is many of the Muslims, they spend their time in Roby.

00:20:46--> 00:21:05

And in loitering during the night. And that was common errors. The last 10 days of Ramadan are mainly the days in which the Muslims should do more bother. But most of the Muslims, they spend time in shopping in celebrating and preparing themselves for it.

00:21:07--> 00:21:29

And most of them spend time in activity with the unproductive rather than spending the time in Nevada. These are some of the other common areas that Muslims commit and I hope inshallah that they will abstain from these arrows in future Irishmen. So, the next question is, are there any common errors that you can mention relationship to culture and country

00:21:30--> 00:21:46

all the errors that are mentioned earlier, by General Muslims throughout the world, there are some errors which are made mainly by people living in certain country, a certain culture for example, in the Indian subcontinent, that people live in India and Pakistan and Sri Lanka

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

during Ramadan, many of the Muslims in the night they play night cricket

00:21:53--> 00:22:03

and they spend most of the time in night cricket rather than doing a bother of Allah subhanaw taala. So this playing net cricket is more common in the Indian subcontinent.

00:22:04--> 00:22:10

If you go to the Arab countries, especially the Gulf countries, there many of the offices

00:22:11--> 00:22:54

many of the working places that is in the market, etc. They change the timings. They hardly work for a couple of hours in the daytime, and they open most of the time during night. So what happens it encourages people to do shopping in the night, rather than the day and they get more business and they inviting people rather in spending time in women, Allah subhanaw taala Muslim spend that time in shopping in eating during nighttime. And furthermore, those people who are employed in the shops they're forced to come at nighttime because it's the duty so these Muslims live in preventing their employees

00:22:56--> 00:23:05

rather than a mimic Allah Spano tala, involving themselves in business and spending most of the time in activities which are not 100% toxic each

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

other to your mind any

00:23:10--> 00:23:14

important Sooners of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that people

00:23:15--> 00:23:42

avoid because they feel it will nullify their fast is there are a few signals of the Prophet which many Muslims avoid thinking if you break their fast or dismal and the most important Sunnah of the Prophet which people avoid doing them then is using the server using the tooth stick. Many Muslims feel that if they use this, it is macro. The main reason is there the hadith of masala Salaam

00:23:43--> 00:23:47

which is mentioned in say Buhari, volume number three,

00:23:49--> 00:24:08

Book of fasting Hadith number 19 104, where the Beloved Prophet masala Salaam said, I swear by Allah, in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, peace be upon him, that the breath of the person who fasts

00:24:09--> 00:24:34

is more sweeter to Allah than the scent of musk. Now based on this Hadith, many Muslims think that if they use the service, the breath, the bad breath, or the foul Breath of the person who fast will not be there, and it will not please Allah that is the reason to avoid using server. So these people they fail to realize that when we use the stick cevok it does not remove the breath.

00:24:35--> 00:24:58

The foul breath, or the breath which people normally don't like, of the person who first the sybok mainly brushes the gums, it cleans the teeth. It helps keeping the teeth healthy, but in no way does it reduce the breath, especially of the person who first and furthermore, is the son of the Prophet where promises are seldom. He said

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

it's mentioned before

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Hurry. Number two.

00:25:03--> 00:25:05

How did number 887

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

a beloved performer Saracen said that

00:25:10--> 00:25:53

if it wouldn't have been too hard for my oma, I would have made it compulsory for them to use the service the to stick before every prayer or to use the to stick bilingual do I have to do is the requirement before Salah the Prophet if you don't have been too difficult for DOMA would have made it compulsory to do the to stick. And here, he did not mention any exceptions. Or they would have said Allah made compulsory for me oma except during fasting, this important should not surely if this would have been mcru while fasting or have nullified the past, surely he would have mentioned it. So this proves that this is important. So now with Muslims should continue doing even during the

00:25:53--> 00:26:37

month of Ramadan, even with fasting, it will not nullify the fast. It's not macro, in fact, it is most it's encouraged. And the importance of not which people neglect or avoid, mainly fearing that it will spoil their fast or nullify the fast is putting water in the nostrils sniffing the water normally, especially during the day. So many of the Muslims even when they do do, they just get the water close to the nose and touch the tip of the nose to the water. That's it. They don't put the water into the nostrils and they clean the nose. They don't sniff it, which is a requirement for thinking that if they sniff it may break the fast water entering through the nose into your throat

00:26:37--> 00:27:22

will nullify the past. But the chances are way negligible. What our beloved Professor Lawson said, as mentioned as I headed up without one number 200 number 2360. A Beloved Prophet said that when you do Voodoo, sniff the water excessively, except in fasting. So normally when we do Voodoo, we sniff the water excessively, except in fasting before then fasting, if we sniff excessively, there are chances though very negligible for it to enter the throat and nullifying your fast. But normally when we put about in the nostrils, there are no chances of it going the truth. Only care that we have to take well first thing is don't sniff excessively. But you have to put the water in the

00:27:22--> 00:27:34

nostrils and clean the nostrils, which is important for now, which many of the Muslims neglect and avoided especially during hoodoo, and your sins The Prophet clearly mentioned except fasting.

00:27:35--> 00:28:15

During the service, he said, I would have made it compulsory had it not been difficult for oma there because it doesn't say fasting it means that silvar can be used well fasting and sniffing should not be an excessively but normally, what should we put in the nostrils while doing so these two important signals, which people out of ignorance they avoid during fasting. And Dr. Zakir next question is a very common question. And it's one that I'd like to know the answer to as well. It's if all the devils are chained during the month of Ramadan, how come people continue to commit sins?

00:28:16--> 00:28:40

And I do agree with you this is a common question. And remember, several years back when I was in school, and when I heard this hadith that the devils are in the month of Ramadan, immediately the question that came to my mind and the question that comes to many Muslims mind and many non Muslims is that if the devils are chained, then how do people how do human beings get committed? Since

00:28:41--> 00:28:49

this question is based on the data from masala Salaam, which I mentioned earlier? I say hadith of Muslim amod

00:28:50--> 00:29:00

volume number two, Page Number 230 Hadith number 7148 which is also repeated in

00:29:01--> 00:29:08

Sunnyside, chapter number five. How did number 2106 were the Beloved Prophet said

00:29:10--> 00:29:15

that only people the blessing month of Ramadan is approaching.

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

And Allah has ordained for you that you fast in this month.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

And

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

the gates of heaven will be open in this month and the gates of hell will be closed and the devils will be chained

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

in this month is a night

00:29:33--> 00:29:44

which is better than 1000 months. And a person who's deprived of the blessing than this man is truly a depressed person. So when we get this added,

00:29:45--> 00:29:56

it clearly mentions that in this month of Ramadan, the devil's will be chained and so logical question if there is the chain, then how the human being that committed sins

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

to make the people understand

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

realize that when the devils are chained, it does not mean that the devil is asleep. They have been killed, yet present, but they're chained.

00:30:12--> 00:30:35

They're not killed, the power is in there, but it is diminished. For a better understanding. I like to give you an example, that when there is a lion, or a tiger who is free, there are high chances that he may kill you. You're likely ninja. But the moment that Tiger or that line is chained, you're safe.

00:30:36--> 00:30:41

You're safe as long as you maintain a safe distance.

00:30:42--> 00:31:19

After the tiger has been chained, if you come too close to him, there are chances that you can be killed. So as long as you maintain that distance from the tiger, who is chained, you are safe. Similarly, in the month of Ramadan, if you maintain a safe distance from the Satan, you will be saved. And if you read the Quran, Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter two was the 116th. Be careful of the Hooda to shaitan of the footsteps of the devil, for his to you and about enemy. Many places a last minute Allah says in the Quran, that Be careful of the footsteps of the devil.

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

Allah doesn't say that Be careful of the devil. Because a normal Muslim, an average Muslim, who has every man, when he sees the devil in front of him, he will be careful. For example,

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

suppose that a young girl

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

who comes to an average Muslim, young boy,

00:31:40--> 00:31:46

who has average man, if a young girl comes and tells him that let's spend the night together,

00:31:47--> 00:32:35

that Muslim will say, spending the night together with a girl is haram. It is dinner, he will immediately object. But that same girl, if that girl phones, that young boy and speaks to him on the phone, the boy will say, speaking to a girl on the phone, there is no problem. So he speaks to the girl for a few times on the phone for a few minutes. Later on, the girl says, Let's go and have some snacks in McDonald's. And Kentucky Fried Chicken, having snacks for a few minutes for half an hour with a girl and McDonald's. No problem. See goes enhance snacks with the girl and McDonald's. later on. The girl says why not have dinner in the restaurant? having dinner with the girl and restaurant

00:32:35--> 00:33:14

for a couple of hours? No problem. Then the girl says why not spend the night together? And then the boy says spending the night together with the girl no problem. So this is throughout the footsteps of the devil. This is not mission the Quran. This is just my own example. So what Allah warns us is that Be careful of the watershed, the footsteps of the devil. If the devil comes directly in front of an average Muslim who has the man he will abstain, he will run away from it. But the kutako shaytan are the things which are dangerous. So what we have realized, when the devil is chained

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

his footsteps are restricted.

00:33:18--> 00:33:22

So many of the things are prevented. But if we go close to him,

00:33:23--> 00:33:52

then the chances that we'll be overtaken by the devil and commit a sin are very high. So what we have to be careful that in Ramadan, if we keep the distance, then the chance of committing sin is less. But if we go close to the Satan, even though he's chained, like our Tiger can walk even after his chin, same the devil. So this is my understanding. And applauded Prophet said the devil is that chain, the devil can it move, but left distance. So if we keep the distance we'll be safe.

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

The second reason that I feel is that

00:33:56--> 00:34:04

in the month of Ramadan, do the devils are chained. We fail to realize that the balanced 11 months they are free

00:34:05--> 00:34:18

and the impact that the devil has on the human beings for these 11 months. It leaves those impact that impression in the month of Ramadan. To give a better understanding. I always give the example

00:34:19--> 00:34:31

that there are drug peddlers which try and get customers, the youngsters from the colleges from the universities to what they do initially, they give the drug free

00:34:32--> 00:34:49

and the entice the youngsters fighting drugs later on after some time, they charge a nominal amount for the drug. later on. They charge an exorbitant amount. But by the time the youngster is already hooked on to the drug.

00:34:52--> 00:34:58

So even if the drug dealer is not there, they will try and find where the drug dealer is. They will go out of the way to find them and get the drug

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

Many of them, even if the drug peddler, the drug dealer is imprisoned by the law, they will go out of their way to find someone else. They may go in a chemist shop and buy mandrakes whatever it is, they're so much hooked on to it. So these people who have become addicted

00:35:19--> 00:35:31

to drugs, or other say addicted to the Satan, even though the Satan is imprisoned, the effect is that they so this big understand as a drug dealer, as a duck peddler, even after it goes, the drug addict,

00:35:32--> 00:35:54

gets accustomed to the drug to V human beings, we are accustomed to the sin. And even though the Satan is imprisoned, we keep on committing these mistakes, but mainly those people who have become addicts fall in this category. So those who made the sin for this category, but the normal Muslims, the average Muslim who haven't become addicted, it's easy for them to stay away from sin.

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

And the third reason that I give

00:35:59--> 00:35:59

is

00:36:00--> 00:36:15

that though there are some scholars who say that in this month of Ramadan, the strong devils, the moderates, then present, the smaller ones afraid. So that keep on coming in mistakes, but on my understanding,

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

the third reason is

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

that

00:36:21--> 00:36:35

Whoa, the devils are chained by Allah subhanaw taala they can yet whisper and one of the ways the devil's try and get the human beings close to them is the spring.

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

And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah NAS, Chapter 114 Muslim one to six, pull out a bit of bananas mullikin us Illa Hannah's Min shahrul was foster kindness, love you was faithful faithful rudeness, misogyny divineness. The whisper in the hearts of the human beings and they withdraw amongst them. That gentleman is talking about the satanist talking about the devils whispering to the hearts of the human being and the withdrawal. And among these devils are the jinn and the human beings. So maybe Allah subhana wa Taala has imprisoned the devils who are the jinn. But the human beings we are yet free. So one category of devils that the gyms have been in prison, but the Satan's or even

00:37:24--> 00:37:26

amongst the men. That's what the law says.

00:37:28--> 00:37:51

While you're free, and yet we have to be careful of the whisper of the devil. The boss was a, this was mainly his thing that attacks towards the sin, the sin that committed but the chances are less. And furthermore, is clearly mentioned for audit that Allah has ordained for you in this mantle from non that you should fast.

00:37:53--> 00:38:20

Only if you fast, according to me with the devil is been prison that's talking about the devils that are going to attract you. So Allah says, If you fast, Allah ordained for you fasting, and the devils will be put in chains. So the devils that after you, if you fast, surely they'll be restricted, the criteria for us to be away from the devil is too fast. If you fast to the proper near

00:38:22--> 00:38:33

seeking the door of Allah subhanaw taala surely the devil will not be able to entice you. And the best logical way to prove this is if we check the crime rate

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

of

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

the Muslim countries during Ramadan it goes down.

00:38:40--> 00:38:45

But if you check the crime rate of the non Muslim countries in them that it is the same.

00:38:46--> 00:38:54

The reason is that because they are not fasting, the non Muslims, this devil yet has an effect on them.

00:38:56--> 00:38:57

Because the Muslims are fasting,

00:38:58--> 00:39:43

if not all properly at least majority or at least quite a large number. So because of that the crime rate in the Muslim countries in the month of Ramadan is low as compared to the other ones, but the crime rate in the non Muslim country is approximately the same indicating otherwise, even the non Muslims they will not come at me since the criteria is that they have to fast properly for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Well, the last question today regarding Prophet Muhammad SAW some statement which you mentioned in your last answer regarding the fact the gates of Paradise are open and the gates of hell are closed. Does this mean that we will be going to paradise if we die in this blessed

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

month? This is the same question in the same Hadith, same Hadith which occurred earlier of muslin amod. run up to page number 230 added number 7148 and it also appears in chapter number 500 number 2106 again,

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

Same Hadith, the prophet said, he told the people that the blessing of Ramadan is approaching, and allies are in for you, that you fast in this month.

00:40:09--> 00:40:22

And in this month, the gates of heaven reopen, and the gates of hell will be closed, and the devils will be chained in this month of the night of Qatar, which is more blessed than 1000 months.

00:40:23--> 00:41:04

And a person who is deprived of the pleasures of the blessings in this month is truly a deprived person. Here again, this is a common question that if the gates of having open and the gates of hell are closed, then anyone who dies but naturally go to the gym, because the gates of hell are closed and open. Does it mean that even if a non Muslim dies in this month, they will be left to go to them? The reply to this question is, when Allah says, that is in this month from man, the gates of heaven are open, it means the gates of heaven inviting you to enter.

00:41:05--> 00:41:17

That means that even if you do a small deed, Allah subhanaw taala will multiply your award and other prophets said that every deed will get a reward 10 times.

00:41:19--> 00:41:22

And in this month, it's very easy to enter.

00:41:23--> 00:41:34

When a prophet said, the gates of hell will be closed, indicating that to end the hell is difficult in this month. Why? Because it's tech one level prizes

00:41:35--> 00:41:57

and the chance of you to come and finish this. And furthermore, if you fast the full month, in the month of Ramadan, seeking Allah reward, all your passes are forgiven. So the moment the person fast in this complete month of Ramadan, seeking out signal as reward or less persons are completely forgiven. So if the past sins are forgiven, the chances of him going to Hell is nil.

00:41:58--> 00:42:09

But what we have to realize the criteria for the gates of heaven to be open and the gates of hell to be closed is that you have to fast

00:42:12--> 00:42:12

and furthermore,

00:42:13--> 00:42:16

to enter Jannah you require a ticket.

00:42:17--> 00:43:02

The ticket to go to Jenna is mentioned in the Quran in surah. Al Azhar chapter 103, Muslim 123 Velasquez while us in in sila, Illinois as in Well, I'm fully happy, but also bill Hackard wasabi sobre. The by the token of time, man is rarely in a state of loss, except those who have faith, do the righteous deeds, those who exhort people to truth and those are people to patient in proceedings. This surah according to Imam Shafi, he said that only if this tool was to be developed the Quran, it would have been sufficient for the salvation of mankind. So important is it is called as raheny chart, the V for salvation. And the criteria for any human being to enter gender is for

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

Firstly, the man second is

00:43:06--> 00:43:30

righteous deeds. Third is exhorting people to throw and fourth to the exhorting people to patient in proceedings. So you have to realize that the gates of heaven are open. But just because the gates open, you can't enter you require the ticket. The ticket is a man, the ticket is righteous deed, exhorting people to throat, exhorting people to patient proceedings. And to get this ticket is very easy the month of Ramadan

00:43:31--> 00:43:34

because a man level rises in the month of Ramadan.

00:43:35--> 00:43:37

Furthermore, your righteous deed, the reward multiply,

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

it's easier

00:43:40--> 00:44:01

for people to treat your patient level increases. So this means that you have to have the criteria that ensure life like agenda, and you will not go to hell. But that doesn't mean that 100% people who die will go to Jenna, surely, those are non believers, they have got no human. So there's no question that they will intergender

00:44:02--> 00:44:06

if a person has to end agenda, he requests a ticket, and the ticket agenda is sorry.

00:44:07--> 00:44:13

Furthermore, if you read the Hadith, it says that only if you fast in the month of Ramadan

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

that means and you follow all the rules and regulations and abstain from thing which I privated then the doors of Heaven will be open and the gates of hell will be closed. Furthermore, it phase in this month is a night which is equivalent to more than 1000 months, indicating that even if you pray and worship Allah subhanaw taala and is one night it will equivalent to more than 1000 months is about more than 80 years. Imagine. So the chances for you to get a reward only in this one night is more than a lifetime. An average human being lives for 60 years. So one leg

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

is more than 1000 months.

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

is about more than 80 years, more than average life of a human being, the chances are very good agenda. And ending poverty says a person who's deprived

00:45:12--> 00:45:43

of these blessings is truly a depressed person, indicating that everyone will not go to general, everyone will not find the doors of heaven open. It says, Then, in part very important that a person who is deprived of the blessings in this month is truly a depressed person that is telling us Muslims, that if you cannot get the benefits of the month of Ramadan, and then if you cannot go to Jannah, then you're truly a depressed person. That even includes the non Muslims who've never been called the higher they are truly the depressed people.

00:45:45--> 00:46:14
