dear brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. May the peace, mercy and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be on all of you. Welcome to the show Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir. I'm your host, Yousef chambers, and today we're discussing the topic.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

Cada fasts, video and Confederate fasts

00:01:14--> 00:01:29

of zakat. Assalamu aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh walakum wa salaamu Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Dr. Zakir The first question I'd like to level at you regarding the topic is could you explain

00:01:30--> 00:01:47

what is the meaning of cada fast Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah is ibH me and my bad also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbishing sadri mycelium Li mahalo determine lasagna,

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

the word cada means to fulfill or

00:01:53--> 00:02:08

compensate fast which were do and they could not be executed means if there is a first pass which you could not keep for some valid reason, then it has to be compensated or fulfilled later on.

00:02:10--> 00:02:28

If there is a valid excuse that you could not keep a file during Ramadan whether it be the person was traveling or you were sick or lady was menstruating etc, then the fast has to be made up later on after the month of Ramadan or if a person breaks the fast

00:02:30--> 00:02:41

for a valid reason, whether he was sick or if he was traveling or stability of mistreating etc Then the fast has to be made up immediately after a man as soon as possible.

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

Unless isn't 100 Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 185

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

fasting was prescribed for a fixed period, but if any of you is ill,

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

or on a journey,

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

then it should be made up later.

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

In the other

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

myth, if you could not fast for a valid reason, then you should make up the fast later on. For example, if suppose someone sick was traveling for the full month in the full month will be made later on. If the month of Ramadan was for training days, then the person should fast for nnd later on, if the month of Ramadan was for 30 days, then the person should fast for 30 days. Besides the fast of Ramadan, if it was obligatory fast that a person says that if he has vowed that he will fast on 14 so if such a thing you fulfill, then you're supposed to fast and if you could not fire for a valid reason, even that should be made a breakdown and even that's called the colourfast. Okay,

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

thank you very much the first answer just

00:03:50--> 00:04:12

now, is it incumbent upon a Muslim is fasting in the month of Ramadan who misses some of the fast in Ramadan to immediately make up those fast after Ramadan. It is not compulsory that if a person misses any fast in Ramadan, you shouldn't make it up immediately. You can make it up any time before the next man comes.

00:04:13--> 00:04:43

If suppose you had missed 10 first in the month of Ramadan, then it becomes obligatory as a last resort that if 10 days are left for a man then become fourth. That is you start making up the first the general ruling is that the person can make up any time before the next Ramadan starts. But it's always preferable that it should be made up as early as possible because the person does not know how long will he live, maybe he can die etc. And the Hadith mentioned in say Buhari

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

born number three in the book of fasting Hadith number 1950 where I show my lovely daughter, she says that she sometimes missed some days of fasting during the month of Ramadan

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

And she could not make up the fast except in the month of Siobhan and then read ads that because she was serving the profit

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

from this holiday come to know that

00:05:14--> 00:05:42

there is no time limit, it should meet as early as possible but the latest is before the next terms on and five possible a person should not delay making the fast, he should make up the fast as early as possible. That is the best, but the maximum we can do the latest is before the next I'm done. As Allah says in the Quran, in Surah elimination, chapter number three was 233 that they are quick in the race

00:05:43--> 00:06:32

for asking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala asking forgiveness from the Lord and for paradise who's with is as much as the heavens and the earth which have been prepared for the most keen which haven't prepared for those who are righteous. Allah repeats a similar message in Surah maamoun chapter number 23 was number 61 It is these who hasten every good work and they are the ones who are the most foremost. So, based on the that it's best that you should work fast as early as possible. So that there is nothing we could do on you Okay, just once again takasaki for the answer. Next question relates to a person who is making up an obligatory fast perhaps after the month of Ramadan

00:06:33--> 00:07:08

for is the ruling if a person breaks a fast while making up for an obligatory fast when a person is making up for the obligatory fast he has missed when doing the other fast. And if he breaks that fast, it is the same ruling as when a person is fast into the model from that is the same ruling. And if a person breaks the fast when making obligately fast if it is a valid reason, for example, he gets sick or if he's traveling have a lady has menstruation then that person should make up the fast as soon as possible before an extra man comes.

00:07:09--> 00:07:19

And if a person breaks the fast while making up for the missed fast without a valid reason, then he should speak for last month as forgiveness

00:07:20--> 00:07:25

and he should repent and again make up the past as early as possible before the next term.

00:07:26--> 00:07:51

Dr. Zakir is the heir obliged to make up the fast the one who dies before he makes up his obligatory fast and secondly, is a person allowed to fast for a person who is alive but is unable to fast due to some legitimate reason, maybe like sickness or such like

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

all the scholars agree that if a person is alive,

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

for example, and if he does not have a Salah

00:08:01--> 00:08:47

no one else can have on his behalf. Similarly, if a person misses any fast, for any valid reason, may be sick, or for example is continuously sick or very old. So no one else can keep the fast on his behalf. As the Quran says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 184 that if a person finds it difficult to keep the fast, then he should feed a poor person, you should feed an indigent person. So you heard if a person is alive and if you cannot keep for a valid reason, like continuous sickness or old age old man or woman, then one person should be fed for every facet he or she misses. This is the only

00:08:48--> 00:08:52

as far as the first question is concerned that if a person

00:08:54--> 00:09:31

dies, before you could make up for the fact that you're supposed to keep so what is the ruling? Shouldn't the air should they pass on his behalf when she dies? As far as Israel is concerned? There are two groups of scholars and the two opinions for it. As far as ruling is concerned for this case, there are two opinions. One group of scholars, they say that the air or the Guardian, they should keep the fast of a person who has died and who ought to have fasted based on the hadith of a Dasha mela, Peter. It's mentioned in say Buhari one number three

00:09:32--> 00:09:49

in the book of fasting, and ID number 1952. Has Ayesha Menlo predator, she says that a person who has died who ought to have fasted, then his guardians should fast on his behalf

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

to based on decided

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

the first group of four they say that the guardian or the air they should make up for the fast when a person dies who

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

ought to have fasted. But there's another group of scholars who say that

00:10:06--> 00:10:15

that's not required. But a person should be fed on his behalf. Based on the Hadith, again of the Dasha mellow PETA, which

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

is there in

00:10:18--> 00:10:49

one library has some volume for page number 422. Where Umbra mellow Peter, she asked me Lupita that her mother had missed some of the fires during the month of Ramadan. So she asked me Lolita, that kenshi fast on behalf of a mother. So as I share my life with you, they said that no, she should not fast on behalf of mother, but she should give charity equivalent to one PSA

00:10:50--> 00:11:03

that feeds a person for every fast that she had missed. So since both these two Hadith contradict the second group of scholars what they say a second opinion is that yet specifically mentioned

00:11:04--> 00:11:25

that the fast that were missed, were the fast from Dan, read the first study of say Buhari. On number three headings number one and five, it's a general has the same that a person who died who ought to have fasted. So that's the general idea. But this added a specific added, we see that these were the fast that we missed due to Ramadan.

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

And you're the ruling is

00:11:30--> 00:12:17

that the fast should not be made up, but one indigent person, one poor person should be fed. So since both of these cannot contradict, and both of these essay, so the scholar they say that if a person misses the fast of Ramadan, then the fasting need not be made up. But the right ruling is that one person should be fed who's poor. The other general How did they say it indicates for a person who has vowed to fast the person was to Allah subhanaw taala that he or she will fast is certain wishes fulfilled. At that time, it's obligatory that the air of the person has died should make up the fast and further a similar thing is mentioned by Dr. Bosman lab be pleased with him.

00:12:17--> 00:12:31

It's mentioned in sunanda. Without warning number two in the book of fasting, and ID number 2395. Neighbors Melo visit him, he says that, if a person dies,

00:12:33--> 00:12:41

who has missed as fast in a man, then you should feed one poor person for every fast that he has missed.

00:12:43--> 00:12:50

And you need not make up for the fast there is no atonement for fast. But if a person has vote too fast,

00:12:52--> 00:13:14

if he has vowed that he will fast if some wishes fulfilled, then in that case, there is a tournament of the fast and that fast will be fulfilled by their oh by the guardian. So based on these 200 because they're gonna contradict that the reason the opinion is divided, that if it's a faster run nonrigid missed, then the right ruling is that one person should be fed five very fast missed.

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

Further, there's one more added in, say Buhari form number three, in the book of fasting, how did number 1953

00:13:26--> 00:13:29

where it says, Bassman Lopez, him,

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

he says that the person came to the prophet and asked him that

00:13:37--> 00:13:37

his mother

00:13:39--> 00:14:14

had to make up for one month of fasting. So should he fast on IVF? The Prophet said, yes, you have the answer in the affirmative. And it is good to make up the fast. But since again, this is a general Hadith. It's not specifically mentioning whether it's the fast of Ramadan which is missed or whether the fast avoid and since we cannot agree that the say Hadith can contradict. So the best is the opinion second opinion that if a person misses any fat in the month of Ramadan, then one person should be fed on his behalf. But if a person vows and does not fulfill

00:14:15--> 00:14:42

the first in this case, foster be made up by the air, okay, shoe, cram, boxes IKEA. If a person was fasting during the month of Ramadan, and unfortunately he passed away he dies, personally takes charge of his affairs after his death is that person obliged to make up and fast that he's missed during the month of Ramadan? As far as a person when he dies? Once he dies, then

00:14:43--> 00:15:00

all his actions they cease to exist. As per the for profit, Mr. seller, it's mentioned in say Muslim model number three. In the book overseer added number 4005. The beloved partners lesson said that once a person

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

In dice,

00:15:01--> 00:15:42

only thing that will continue amongst all his deeds is the recurring charity he has made or the knowledge that he has spread that he has used to benefit the people. And the third is his son praying for him. So besides these three things, everything is seizes. So but nothing when a person dies and if you had fasted maybe for 10 days of Ramadan, it dies on the 10th day that doesn't mean that the balance 20 days somebody should make up for it fast. Once he dies, then he doesn't have proper Salah he doesn't have to fast everything to the exit except the TT which I mentioned. So the person knew the charger for the fifth You need not worry at all when he dies, everything feels

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

strange, except TV with image. very succinct answer. Dr. Zakir suppose a person dies. And that doesn't who has died has made an obligatory vow to fast can

00:15:57--> 00:16:21

the same number of people as the number of days that he's about to fosse make up for the as fast as fine as the person who has died and had vowed that he will make X number of fast evolve evolved maybe about say that if you have said that, he will fast for 30 days and miserable. And if he dies without fulfilling that vow,

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

then in this case,

00:16:25--> 00:16:35

can one person fast for 30 days or can Today we will make up for the fast and one day. The reply is given an update of say Buhari Formula Three

00:16:37--> 00:16:46

book of fasting, chapter number 42, where Hassan mallow president said that if 30 people gathered together

00:16:47--> 00:17:04

and they fast together on one day, that could even make up for the fact that the person who has died has vowed for 30 days. So either one person fast for the number of days he has vowed or that number of people, as many as the days vote come together and fast.

00:17:06--> 00:17:37

Both are permissible. Okay. That's comforting to know. Al Hamdulillah. Dr. Zakir, in the case of a woman who's on her menses going through her period menstrual cycle. Can she fast these first six days of Chahal before she makes up the fast which he missed due to the period in Ramadan. As far as a lady who has undergone menstrual cycle and she misses, maybe six months in the month of Ramadan,

00:17:38--> 00:18:20

she has both the options, she can either make up the fast from none first, and then find the fastest for one. Or she can first do the six faster server and then make up for the fact that she had missed. But as far as permissibility is concerned, both about Mr. Bill, but the better would be that first, she makes up for the fact she has missed in the month of Ramadan, because that's an obligatory fast, the faster show while in the voluntary fast. First, she should make up for the five That's better. And then she should follow the faster server so that she would be able to fulfill the benefits. As a beloved partner Sarah slim said. It's mentioned in say Muslim

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

world number two,

00:18:24--> 00:18:43

in the book of fasting, added number 2614 that the beloved partner Salaam said that anyone who follows the month of Ramadan, and then for the top with six fast in the month of April while it's as though he has faster for the full year, or he has faster puppetry for the full life.

00:18:44--> 00:19:01

So better of the two is that she first makes up the fast for a man. And then later on, she fast the six days of Chahal so that she gets the full benefit. So you get the full sabab she gets the full reward associate faster for the full year or the full life. But if he wants to first

00:19:02--> 00:19:12

give the foster show one and then make up for the first of them none, maybe after a couple of months when that's permissible, but the better is the first one or she has one more option that

00:19:13--> 00:19:55

she can do the Nia of making up for the first day she didn't keep in the month of Ramadan and even together with that, do the Nia of Shawwal switch to in one and inshallah Allah will order for both together? Just Allah have the answer Dr. Dr. Zakir this one who is making up cut of us have to make them up consecutively. Or at random for the person who missed is faster and I'm done while making because there are two rulings. There are two groups of scholars. One group of scholars say that it should be consecutively. It is based on a heartbeat, which is President Mbeki as a company. We say that

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

if a person was missed the first and I'm done here

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

To make up the past consecutively, but just had it is a day Friday, it's a weak habit. There is another Hadith, which is present in the company, which says that a person who's making up for the cadavers, he can either make it consecutively or he can make it separately the way he pleases.

00:20:20--> 00:20:44

So the right ruling is that both options are available, he can do it the way he wants, because the Quranic verse says in Surah, Baqarah chapter number two was the 184, that if a person is sick, if he will, or if he's on a journey, he should make up the fast later from the other days, once I'm done is awakened fast any other day.

00:20:46--> 00:21:07

The same message appeared in the next verse instead of Bukhara, Chapter Two was the one to defy, that it says that they have prescribed too far in the month of Ramadan, but if anyone who is ill on a journey, he has to make up the prescribed periods from the other days. So based on this ruling is that the cadavers can be kept

00:21:08--> 00:21:43

anyway, whether consecutively or it can be kept separately the choices is, there is no one particular audit, which is authentic, in which the Prophet said how the data should be kept, or describes how the Prophet kept. But there are other Hadith we speak about the core of the Sahaba was the quality of near Bassman library, the Tim in say Buhari form number three, in the book of fasting, chapter number 40. If near Bassman life period him said that a person who has missed the fast in a man he can

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

fast separately if he pleases.

00:21:47--> 00:22:40

There is another call in the company of Abu huraira man library to him. He said that if a person wants to make up for the fast they have missed in the month of Ramadan, he can fast constructively if he pleases. So that actually is that nakada fast can be made together if a person pleases. If you make 15 files, they can file 15 files together or he can fast at random. One faster week, one fast a month or once a fortnight, the choices. Okay, thank you for the answer. JazakAllah Could you explain for the benefit of the viewers what is video and on whom is it obligatory? The word Vidya means the compensation for a fast which could not be kept due to some permanent disability or some disease, as

00:22:40--> 00:23:05

the Quran mentioned is Rebecca, chapter number two was the 184 that if it is difficult for a person to fast, then he can feed one indigent person, one poor person. So if a person who has permanent disability is permanently sick, or is very old and can't fast, then you should feed one poor person for every five days missed and this is called as failure.

00:23:07--> 00:23:20

Okay, Dr. Zakir is it permissible for one who's unable to fast to feed one person for 30 days or 30 people in one day.

00:23:21--> 00:23:30

As far as failure for a person who can't fast is unable to fast the Quran says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the one

00:23:31--> 00:23:42

that if a person finds it difficult to keep the fast of fine fasting with hardship, then you can either fast or he can feed

00:23:44--> 00:23:48

one indigent person for every fast that he has missed. So, if a person

00:23:49--> 00:24:39

who misses the full month of Ramadan for example, and has to get fit there, he has both the options open either calls 30 people and feed them together. So that compensates our guests for their for all the 30 days that the person admits or he can even give one person for their for 30 days and each person should be given Mansa or the staple food of their state of that country. One size equal one and a half kilograms approximately. And the buidlings are there as it's mentioned in the ruling of apnea bus in stable Heidi on number six. Number 4505. In commentary of this was a different era chapter two was meant to default. It says that those people who find it difficult to fulfill the

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

past to complete the past, they either completed or feed one indigent person and it says that these type of people describe are very old men and women or those people who have permanent disability or they have a disease which makes them difficult to fast and both types for fast as is given in the heat of

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

One of the sidebars by the name of and has been Malik millipedes with him. When he was old, he says that he cooks on food and called 20 people and fed them together the full for their for the full month of Ramadan. So you're sure that you can either get cooked food, cooked food for them and feed them well, whether it be breakfast or they'd be dinner, whatever it is, or the adoption is as it also agreed upon by

00:25:25--> 00:25:34

Mr. memorably humble Imam Shafi as well as some of the molecules that you can also give

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

uncooked food to one person

00:25:38--> 00:26:27

for 30 days, one person only given uncooked food for 30 days, so that that compensates or give the feed there for the full month. This will also give some choices on either feed one person for 30 days or 30 people for one day. Okay, what is permissible? Fine, thank you, Jackie. Could you explain the term Guevara? And furthermore, would you also let our viewers know, what is the expiation for a person who has sexual intercourse was fasting during the month of Ramadan, the word confira is derived from the word cough, which means to conceal, which means to hide, which means to cover. And in context of fasting, a form of fasting is done, when a person will fully break the fast by having

00:26:27--> 00:27:02

a section to cross and a man has session to cross the divide while fasting, while keeping a fruit fast, that fast in the month of Ramadan, then there should be confira. As far as what is the confira? It's mentioned clearly in, say, Bukhari one, number three, in the book of fasting, and ID number 196, where a person comes to professormesser sanlam. And he says, that almost a year from now, I am ruined. I'm ruined, Prophet asked what happened. He says that I had sexual intercourse with my wife, while I was fasting.

00:27:03--> 00:27:29

Your protoporphyrin said, I had sexual intercourse with my wife, while I was fasting. The Prophet asked him that, can you commit a slave? Can you free a slave? So he said, No. Then the Prophet asks him that, can you fast for two consecutive months? And you fast for 60 days together? So he said, No. And the professor asked him that, can you feed 64 people? The man replies, no.

00:27:30--> 00:27:39

So then a person comes and gives a basket of date to the Prophet. The Prophet hands this over to the man and says, that

00:27:40--> 00:28:05

gives us to the poor people. And that will be a Farah. So the main us that should I give to a person who's what are the my family preferences? Yes. So then the person says, I evolved by Allah subhanaw taala, I don't know of any family, which is poorer than my family, between the two hills and mountains of Medina, to the Prophet smile is still his molar, a theme, and he says,

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

Give it to a family.

00:28:09--> 00:28:15

So from this Hadith, we come to know that once a person brings the first

00:28:16--> 00:28:36

purpose in having a sexual intercourse with his wife, the first thing you should do is that he should compensate the fast as early as possible, but national before then extremism, number two, he should give confira from the digicam to know that there are three options given number one is he should free a slave.

00:28:37--> 00:28:48

or number two, he can fast consecutively for 60 days, continuously should five days together without any break, or he should feed

00:28:50--> 00:28:51

64 people

00:28:52--> 00:29:16

and most of the scholars agree that it is not you can choose any one of the three. Some scholars say yes, you can choose any one of the three. But the reality is, you should try and win the first one to free a slave. If he cannot free a slave then he should fight for two months consecutively, continuously. If you cannot do that, then the option is that he can feed 60 people. So this is a fire like a fire of concern.

00:29:18--> 00:29:34

paddies you've cited there from the Prophet Mohammed sauce. Now, in order to answer that very good. does a person have to offer expiation for having sexual intercourse whilst he's doing a voluntary fast.

00:29:35--> 00:29:40

As far as voluntary fasts are concerned, there is

00:29:41--> 00:29:44

no such patient if a person has sexual intercourse,

00:29:45--> 00:29:58

the confira that is there is only when a sexual intercourse is done during a first fast reading the faster from none. That is the time it's far there the Hadith which is mentioned in pseudonym without

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

The first thing I did number 2450, which netted me Hanuman Lopez. She says that the Prophet gave water to drink. During the conquest of Makkah, what was brought to the Prophet, the prophet gives a water drink, she brings the water and she says that I have broken my fast. I was fasting to the Prophet assar. The was the fast for some atonement, he says no to the Prophet says, then there's no problem. If it is a warranty fast, then there's no problem. Here we come to know that the sin is only there, if you break a forest fast.

00:30:38--> 00:31:18

Because a warranty fast it depends upon the person who can break the fast he can even eat whenever he wants and break the fast as recorded several 100 earlier that one of the buttons cause a Sabha to have food at his house. And the server says that I'm fasting profits say that he made food for you is spend money to break your fast, go to the volunteer fast, the one D fast can be broken, there is no sin at all. So in the same way, if a person has sexual intercourse with his wife during warranty fast, then it's not a sin, because warranty fast. And he did not make up for the fact he wants to make up he can make up but neither is Danica Farah.

00:31:20--> 00:31:56

Again, there's a hadith in sunanda sai book of fasting, and it's number 23231 is the Prophet gets up in the morning and he asked for food for his wife holiday shama brigitta, she says no food. The Prophet said that I'm fasting. Again for one day fast. The neon did not be made the night before. It can even be made afterwards, as long as the person did not have any food after dawn. So based on this the look of Fira if a person has sexual intercourse during phosphagen voluntary Jazakallah last question for you today. Doctors are here.

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

In this interview

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

phase, obviously we'll be answering questions from the viewers later on in Sharla. In the case of a person who delays making up Miss fasts, is there any expiation to be paid at all by that person?

00:32:15--> 00:32:38

The right ruling is that if a person misses any fast in the month of Ramadan, he should make it up as soon as possible. Let us benefit from none. If it doesn't make up for the fast before the next time none, then it's a sin. In this case, you'd ask for forgiveness, and you should make it up as soon as possible. As far as the patient is concerned the different opinions some scholars say that because he delayed

00:32:39--> 00:32:47

he should give some education and feed one poor person for every fascias missed, but there is no

00:32:48--> 00:33:31

proof in authentic hadith, that expression should be given, or the Quran is very clear, in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 185 that if a person is ill on a journey, he should make up the fast later on from the other days. There's no explanation mentioned here. So right ruling is that if he has delayed too long, it should make it up as soon as possible, offer that other fast. But there's no explanation and this is the ruling of most of the scholars, including Excel man out there, he says that, you know, division make up the past as soon as possible, but there's no proof for expiation. But if you ask for forgiveness for having delayed to make up the vast head of the SEC

00:33:31--> 00:34:16

here, and now it's time to move on to the questions from the viewers. The first question I'd like to pose to you, Dr. Zakir is from one of yours, of course, how does fasting act as an expiation for since Allah subhanho wa Taala has been really merciful. And he has made fasting adaptation for various fossils, and the various verse in the Quran, which give us examples where it can be used, and depending upon different sins, the days that you have too fast it keeps on deferring. For example, Allah says in Jeremiah, chapter number five, was the man and defy that fasting and view the expiation when you

00:34:17--> 00:34:21

hunt a game during the sacred prisons, or in the state of

00:34:23--> 00:35:00

Maine or Umrah or Hajj, and if you hunt a game, then fasting can be one of the ways in expression of essence, for this machine is for a Baccarat chap number two was number 186. That if a person shaves his head, when he then Aram, either Umbra or Hodge, because of certain diseases, which not allowed to, then he can fast as an exhibition, or getting permission for chapter two was the one and the six, that when a person performs hudge, he has to sacrifice an animal. It doesn't have the means to do it. Instead of that as an expression.

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

He can fast. Further, as mentioned in sort of my, the chapter number five was the age nine, that fasting can be used as an expansion. If you break a while,

00:35:11--> 00:35:22

if you've taken an oath, and if you're violated in fasting and view the distribution, it's also mentioned in sort of medalla chapter number 58 was number three and four,

00:35:23--> 00:35:26

that if a person, if a man

00:35:27--> 00:36:15

divorces his wife, by the heart, you know, the old practice in olden days, with Arabs, that if a husband calls his wife that you're like, the backside of my mother is called as the her its way of divorce. So as an expiation, even that time fasting is an official sin, fasting two consecutive months. It differs in different things that are different explanations. And one more example like to give you just for the benefit of viewers. It mentions for an ESA, chapter number four was the 92, that if a person accidentally kills a believer, or if it kills a person with whom had a treaty, then fasting can be used as an explanation for this also, as Akela has the answer. Next question from one

00:36:15--> 00:36:39

of our viewers. If a person is unsure about how many fast he has broken or missed, how should he calculate the number of fast that he has to make up? If a person doesn't know how many fast he has missed or can't remember, have an recollect then you should make a rough estimate. But it should not underestimate it, you should make a rough calculation and fast

00:36:40--> 00:37:04

if you Oh estimates, my little it's not a problem, neither should he Oh estimate too much additional overburden himself. So he should make a rough calculation to the best of his memory to the best of his understanding a little bit over estimate No problem, but not too much, and neither should be underestimated. And he should complete that fast. But there are some three points to be noted. Number one, is it should depend for it.

00:37:06--> 00:37:14

But he missed or could not fast you depend for it. And Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah, chapter number 24 was number 31.

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

It says that all those who believe

00:37:19--> 00:37:25

they turn to the Lord in forgiveness, so that they attain bliss. So that then we go to Jenna.

00:37:26--> 00:37:35

Again, Allah says in the Quran Surah Baqarah, chapter two, verse number 26, that Allah subhanaw taala does not lay a burden on a person greater than he can be.

00:37:36--> 00:38:04

So a person should repent and should make up the past as soon as possible, which whatever understanding he has, of the number of fast days missed. And Allah says in Surah, qaboun, Chapter 64 was number 16. That fear Allah as much as you can listen and obey. So, person should keep the fast make of the fast as soon as possible, preferably, as soon as possible, but naturally, before the extra man comes. And the third point is, that

00:38:05--> 00:38:44

daughter must, some scholars think that if he has missed it, and to my delight, etc, he should even give explanation that the feeding one 4% for every first day of missed, though most of the scholars agree that it's not a must read person can do if you can give when it is preferable, or Sunnah. Must Next question. A sick sister could not fast in Ramadan. And she could also not find a poor person to feed. Should she give money in charity? If so, how much does she have to give in its place?

00:38:45--> 00:38:53

And it's clearly mentioned the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the man hungry before that, if a person

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

can fast and hardship

00:38:56--> 00:39:37

he can either fast or he has to feed a person indigent feed a poor person very fast he had missed. So if the sister was sick, and she could not fast, or she cannot make up for the fast because she's sick. And according to the commentary of Abner Bussmann, Lupita Tim mission say Buhari on number 300 number 4505 comment you have this verse of the Quran Surah Baqarah chapter towards money depot. He says that this verse is not abrogated, but it refers to those people, old woman and old men who cannot make up for the past or a person who's continuously sick, like the sister, as far as feeding indigent. That's what the Quran says.

00:39:38--> 00:39:52

But you cannot give charity to any poor person. You have to give food. That is one sir, for one person is equal to one and a half kilograms. And as a sister says that she cannot find a poor person

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

where she lives. I finished difficult find some Muslim countries I've got more poor people somewhat less but

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

Say that she cannot find a single poor person to feed. That is difficult. I don't know if any country where you will not find a single poor person find some countries have less poor people. Some countries have more poor people. But to say that she can't find it difficult. But surely

00:40:15--> 00:41:02

she cannot give money in charity. How much money would you give the harasser to feed? One poor person for every facet missed? what she can do, she can appoint some person to find the poor person or appoint an organization to find but you see to that she would feed give food. That's one sir, for every fast chef missed. There are many charities in every country representing the Muslims. I'm sure she can find I think you're absolutely right. Is that Hello hair doctors. Okay. Next question for you. Dr. Zakir, I read that it is permissible for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers not too fast, and that they could feed the poor and do not have to make up their Miss days. How true is

00:41:02--> 00:41:08

that? As far as for a lady who's pregnant? Or who's breastfeeding?

00:41:09--> 00:41:36

How should she make up for the fast the views divided? There are two groups for scholars. One group of scholars, they say that she did not make up for the past only thing she has to give is the feeding of one poor person for every facet she has missed based on the verse of the Quran in surah baqarah chapter two Muslim 184 that if you find it difficult to fast, then feed one indigent person

00:41:37--> 00:41:47

and learn the date of the bus. It's mentioned in Sona without org number two in the book of fasting. How did number 2311

00:41:48--> 00:42:17

and Dr. Bosman lived with him, he is coming to have the first chapter towards 184. He says this is meant for people who are very old, old man or old woman or people who are continuously sick, and there's no chance of them to become healthy. And he also adds that this refers to breastfeeding mothers and pregnant woman. But according to Cheryl Barney, howdy, Dave, it's a very crowded, but there is another Hadith

00:42:18--> 00:42:35

which is there in that Whitney were abysmal. I visit him. He says to concubine, that because you're pregnant, you need not keep the fast. Again, you have to get fit. Yeah, that is feed one post very fast you have missed

00:42:36--> 00:42:50

talking to a concubine when Mr. Fast. So based on this, this group of scholars say that you need not make up for the first only video feed one indigent person for every facet missed. But the other group of scholars what they say

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

that this verse of the Quran Surah Baqarah chapter two, verse 184, does not fall in the category of breastfeeding woman and pregnant woman. Rather, the next was suitable for chapter two was the money defy which says that first in the month of Ramadan, but if any of you is sick, or on a journey, then you should make up the fast later on. So what this group of scholars say, which is also the call of Ultimate Life presents him that a best feeding woman and pregnant women fall in this category. They fall in the category of person who's sick. You know, it may be if she farted maybe dangerous for her life, or if she fasted may be dangerous for the life of the baby. So they said the breastfeeding

00:43:34--> 00:44:13

woman and the pregnant women are more closer to the people who are sick. Therefore, they have to make up the fact where there was some sort of Baccarat Jeopardy was made if I save that fast in the month of Ramadan, but if you're ill, or if you're on a journey, you have to make up for the fast later on from the other days. So this is a more correct ruling. However, there's another third group of people what they say that if she has to fast because her life is in danger, then she has to make up for the fast later on from the other days. But if she has broken the fast, because the life of the child is in danger, then besides making up for the fast later on, she also has to get fit he has

00:44:13--> 00:44:59

to feed one poor person. But the more authentic ruling is the second ruling that if a breastfeeding woman or a pregnant woman, if she misses any fast or she breaks any fast, only thing she has to do with makeup for the fast later on this is more correct view as compared to all the visible which is also followed by Imam Ahmed Mohammed gamble, when without live mercy on them? asked Imam Emma didn't humble that what should a breastfeeding woman do or a pregnant woman do if she misses a fast? So he replied that she did not feed anyone but she has to make up for the fast return from the other div. Okay, thank you. Dr. Zakir. The last question today is is it permissible to give

00:45:00--> 00:45:35

Vidia to one's own children and grandchildren. As an Iftar meal, as far as video is concerned, is mentioned the Quran Surah Baqarah chapter two was 184 that if a person again due to hardship, you should feed one indigent person one person very fastly has missed, I finally give him to the country is concerned, it's mentioned here in the Quran that fit there should be given to a poor person. So the gang children and for the children and for your county for their to them, they should be poor, if they are rich, and you cannot give point number two, fit Yeah, somewhat like Zakat

00:45:36--> 00:45:52

because you can give to a person who's dependent, so the children are dependent to the Father, even the grandchildren are dependent. So but natural in this context with the I cannot begin with children and the grandchildren. And the third point to be noted is that if

00:45:53--> 00:46:36

the person is very poor, and the children are not dependent on the father or the grandfather, because he's so poor, he doesn't have to look after them. Only in that case of the last resort, he can defer the the grandchildren or children based on the hadith of sable, Heidi, worm number three, Book of fasting. Number 1936. When a person comes to the Prophet, he gives the basket of date to him and say they feed it to the poor people. We say the Should I give it to someone who's poorer than me and my family Prophet says yes, we said by Allah, I did not know if anyone any family who's poorer than my family, between the two mountains of Medina. So the profits miles were more low can be seen

00:46:36--> 00:47:17

any save, okay, feed your family. So in this case, when the family is very poor, and they are dependent on the father or the grandfather, in this case, as a last resort, it can be given as a failure to the children, young children. As far as saying if they've third party, that's not a problem at all. But the general ruling is it can be given to the rich people at the last resort if they're really poor. And can Okay, well, Dr. Zakir, thank you very much for your very nice answers today. Alhamdulillah on the topic of the cutter, fasts, video, and cafaro fast.
