00:01:34--> 00:02:21

I would like to ask you a question on the topic regarding you know, what are we going to do after Ramadan ends and until the next one comes? Because we seem to be in a state of spiritual loss after Ramadan. So this is why obviously we're having this program and this will give enthusiasm and motivation for the brothers and sisters inshallah to continue all the righteous acts that they've been involved with throughout the 30 days of Ramadan inshallah, inshallah. So in one line, how can the Muslim brothers and sisters around the world remain steadfast from what they achieved in Ramadan? Alhamdulillah wa salatu wa salam ala rasulillah Ali Rifai Benjamin Amma bad also Billahi

min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbish Elisa de recently Emory wahala Melissa Neff, Gokhale

00:02:29--> 00:02:49

if a Muslim goes through the month of Ramadan, and he fasts during the day. And he offers the night prayer during the night. And he's accustomed to doing the good deeds, that insha Allah, he should continue doing the same things throughout the year.

00:02:50--> 00:02:55

This is the sign of a true believer. And Allah subhanho wa Taala our watching,

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

indeed,

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

steadfastness

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

after the month of Ramadan,

00:03:03--> 00:03:09

it is the greatest sign what a person has achieved in the month of Ramadan and

00:03:10--> 00:03:34

a person who steadfast after I'm done, and you continue doing the good deeds, or the fries, and my prayers and so now etc. It is one of the best signs that his fasting has been accepted by Allah subhanaw taala it scientific symptoms. And Allah says in the Quran in surah facilite chapter number 41 was the machete

00:03:36--> 00:03:47

in case those who say Our Lord is Allah, and they stand firm, straight and steadfastness and angels descend on them from time to time

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

and they say fury not

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

know you grieve

00:03:53--> 00:04:03

and inshallah glad tidings will descend on you of the eternal bliss. That is Jenna paradise, which is promised for people like you. And I repeat the message in

00:04:04--> 00:04:54

chapter 46 was number 13. That, Indeed, those who say that allies are Lord, and stand firm and steadfast on them shall be no grief, nor will have any fear. And a beloved prophet masala slim said. It's mentioned the hadith of a Muslim are number one in the book of purification, Hadith number 450 masala Sallam said that the five daily prayers and one Jew masala to the nectar masala and one dumbed down to the next I'm done. These are the periods for the expansion of sins. As long as you have strayed from major sins, all these acts five daily prayers Jamaat g masala and ramadan ramadan as long as they obtained from the major sins during this acts its exploration of your students. So

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

once you find the month of Ramadan properly following all the commands, Allah and then stay steadfast

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

The next time that inshallah all your sins except for the major that be forgiven. It's mentioned in say Muslim one number one, in the book of faith, item 62, the beloved Prophet Musa al Salaam, once the person who comes to him and he asked him, that oh Prophet, tell me regarding the deen of Islam something which after which I will not have to go to anyone besides you, and the Prophet said, believe in Allah and remain steadfast in it. Allah smart Allah says in Surah Ibrahim, Chapter 14, verse number 37, Allah subhana wa Taala will establish those from faith who believe in the word and then stand firm and steadfast and Allah will industry those who are drawn

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

from this was the Quran. We come to know that a person should be steadfast in faith and inshallah doors are the people was righteous people. The Beloved Prophet masala Some said it's mentioned say Buhari, won number seven, in the book of Hadith number 5861.

00:06:07--> 00:06:53

Elijah min Lupita. She says that Prophet Musa la Salaam is to construct a room with a seat and pray in it during nighttime and daytime is to flatten it and sit on it. Later on, when people came to know, they started praying along with the Prophet, and the group kept on increasing and when it increased to a large number, the prophet turn and told them that do the deeds, how much you can do. But be confident in it. Even though it's a few, that being constant is important for Allah subhanho wa Taala does not get tired of giving awards, but you can get tired. It's nice to say Buhari won number eight, or the number 6465 Adi Shama Lupita, she narrates the Prophet said, the most loved

00:06:53--> 00:07:02

deed by Allah are those deeds that are done, even if you prefer to live video games, which are eligible.

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

And I love the deeds which are constant in industry. So

00:07:10--> 00:07:52

it's the duty of evolution, that after a man, it should remain steadfast in their faith. If he is too far removed from land, yet he has a portion it is to do the voluntary fast with the Prophet has recommended toward the if a person used to pray at nighttime, during the month of Ramadan every day, you can eat pray at nighttime after a man if if to give the catalyst towards the end of the month of Ramadan, you can give charity for the full year. And all the good deeds that is true whether reading the Quran, in the month of Ramadan, again, continue toward the year. So person whatever good he has achieved in the month of Ramadan, he should remain steadfast in it. And that is the sign of

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

acceptance. And these are the people who will be prosperous.

00:07:56--> 00:08:09

JazakAllah hare and I think that there's adequate information there for the people to take heat and continue the good righteous actions that they've accumulated and made constant in this month of Ramadan.

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

Next question is,

00:08:14--> 00:08:50

what exactly do you think an ideal condition of a Muslim that has gone through the whole month of Ramadan and has come out to the end now what is the ideal condition, the ideal condition, or the desired condition of a true Muslim, after the month of Ramadan should be that first and foremost, you should thank Allah subhanaw taala for making him able to fast during the full month of Ramadan, and as well as offer campamento from Dan, the condition of a true Muslim is better after I'm done than what it was when Amazon started.

00:08:51--> 00:08:55

And his good deeds should have increased.

00:08:56--> 00:09:33

And because of the whole institution of fasting, the month of Ramadan, and the true believers really fear that have the deeds been accepted or not. And the righteous fetuses, always they competed with each other in the righteous work and to strive for perfection in the good deeds, but hoping that it will be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala and fearing that it should not be rejected, as Allah says in the Quran, in Surah majda chapter number five was number 27 that Allah accepts the sacrifice of those righteous.

00:09:34--> 00:09:43

That means being righteous is very important. And it's mentioned the Saudis have made the Hadith number 3175 Ayesha, Mallaby PETA.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

Anna,

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

she asked the Prophet regarding the use of the Quran, those that are given what they're given, and the tremble with fear, are these the people who drink alcohol and they steal so the Prophet applies

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

Daughter of acidic shield the daughter of a robot Carmela up with him. The Prophet says oh Daughter of acidic.

00:10:09--> 00:10:33

These are the people who fast and they pray and they give charity. They are the people who feel that has Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted the deed or not, and they are the people who rush to do good deeds and they are the one to do it first. So we are talking about the state of a true believer that they do good deeds, yet the hope that may be accepted and they fear that it will be rejected.

00:10:34--> 00:10:43

So in the month of Ramadan, a person does good deeds he fast etc. and a true believer state is such it continues throughout the year until next Ramadan.

00:10:44--> 00:11:09

But unfortunately, there are some Muslims who are very pious only during the month of Ramadan, they move for fighting Salah, they may fall during the month of Ramadan, they may pray the gam salah and do all good deeds. But the moment Ramadan goes away, all these acts vanished from the life some of them even neglectful of the players. Some don't preach a masala some don't even get up for the failure of Salah

00:11:10--> 00:11:20

when the streets of random month of London they no longer read. And it's a pity that the deeds they vanish after the month of Ramadan as though

00:11:21--> 00:11:51

that they believed in Allah only in the month of Ramadan. It's a pity and it's wrong thing as though the Muslims believe that Allah will need in the month of Ramadan and the other month he doesn't exist. So we prayed Allah subhanaw taala that me he make us and all of us wish to at first as we were in the month of Ramadan throughout the year, until the next time that inshallah I mean, inshallah Well, Dr. Zakir, I agree with you. I think it's very, very sad that so many of us neglect our Deen after the month of Ramadan.

00:11:52--> 00:12:31

But perhaps you could persuade some of us to retain some of the goodies that we've accumulated and we've started doing during the month of Ramadan by telling us what are the means by which we can continue doing those righteous actions after the month of Ramadan and beyond inshallah, number one is to ask the support of Allah subhanaw taala to ask his help, as Allah says in the Quran, inshallah noumenon chapter three, verse 260. If Allah helps you, then can overcome you, if Allah for six you who is dead and who can help you. So let the believers put the nationalist manansala So first and foremost, we should seek the help of Allah subhanaw taala and ask him to guide us on the right track

00:12:31--> 00:13:16

and see to it that he keeps us steadfast after the month of Ramadan. And the best dua a person can make is what Allah has mentioned in his book, The Quran in Psalm one, chapter three was number two Allah says Ravana Lao Tzu fluvanna body retina habla na Milan Karima. In netent Aloha, which means our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after thou has guided us. Grant us mercy from their own presence, for thou art grant of bounties without measure, this is one of the best dua that a person can read, especially after the mentor from none that have been allowed to the alumina badges. Lena Wahab, Lana Milan kurama Aloha, oh, Lord,

00:13:17--> 00:13:34

let's not deviate after that has guided us, grant us mercy, from my own presence, for thou art grant of mercy. Without measures, I purposely repeated because it's very important though. Number two, a person should be in the company of the righteous,

00:13:36--> 00:13:52

his friends circle, the people who live with sheep righteous people should be on the straight path should be true believers so that that helps him to be on the straight path on the steadfastness what he was doing a month from that. Point number three, he should attend Islamic lectures,

00:13:53--> 00:14:07

Islamic talks, Islamic seminars, Islamic conferences, should visit Islamic organizations which will help him to be on the straight path and come closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Point number four, he should watch

00:14:08--> 00:14:35

Islamic programs on the videotapes on the CDs and DVDs on the television. And so that he gets more and more knowledge of the deen and get some closer to the deen of Islam. He should go to attending Islamic sites on the internet that led him to be steadfast. He can listen to audio tapes of the Islamic scholars. He can read books, you should read the translation Glorious Quran.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

He should read the Hadith

00:14:40--> 00:14:44

not just the Quran, as I mentioned earlier, for international translation.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, by Muslim can't live a good translation of the Quran as far as I'm concerned as a Muslim, so not without some noise. I remade the image

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

cetera. We have the seed of the Prophet. One of the good books is Michael Morton by checking software, Mr. Puri, and so on and so forth, which can keep you on the right track.

00:15:09--> 00:15:34

Further, he should see to it, that he does all his obligatory acts, but they'd be praying five times a day, with the giving charity, if you have not performed how you should perform, if you have the means to enjoy and so forth, you should increase his suburgatory acts, then a few likes that are awful, so that we can improve that Allah subhanaw taala in keeping steadfast all North elects.

00:15:36--> 00:16:01

He should do more because of Allah subhanaw taala Remember last mantra, you should read the Quran as much as possible, and remember as much as possible, and what do you remember they should have said in the Quran, so that it becomes part of his memory. Furthermore, which is very important, he should abstain from things which take him away from Allah subhanaw taala mahadasha done watching under some television programs, watching an Islamic movies,

00:16:03--> 00:16:48

during our summer songs, listening to music, going to Islamic websites, all these things are taught to shut down, we take the person away from the straight path. And lastly, he should again pray to Allah subhanaw taala to help him to be on the straight path. And thank Allah subhanaw taala and repent if I made any mistake, and thank Allah subhanaw taala for all that good he has done to him and to keep him on the straight path. Just like Allah Hi, Dr. Zakir why is it that Muslims can't continue worshiping Allah with the same enthusiasm and zeal after the month of Ramadan? One of the main reasons for this is because many Muslims, they consider the acts done in the month of Ramadan,

00:16:48--> 00:17:28

more as a custom whether tradition that it's a custom we have to fast in the month of Ramadan, you have to pray the robbing the month of Ramadan you have to do good deeds more for custom, it is not for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. And there are many people who offer Dharavi, that is the camel l very religiously, but unfortunately, they miss many of the further Salah Yes, which is absolutely wrong, because the first ally the fourth and tarawih is referred to as one of the macula it must have. So because of this more for custom ROM than being more for custom, more of a tradition, that that is that once a man is over, they forget everything as I mentioned earlier, that

00:17:28--> 00:17:31

as well live only during the month of Ramadan and not in the other months.

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

Point number two

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

is

00:17:36--> 00:18:22

because the surrounding and that posture, which is then the month of Ramadan does not remain after I'm done is over. So if they as I mentioned earlier, they keep righteous friends and Company of good people, then the chances of being steadfast is much more. And thirdly, that because of weak faith, many a time that of righteousness keeps on becoming less and less in the starting of Ramadan, people enthusiastic and the old wait sometimes therefore we find that the most are filled during the first starting nights for tarawih for gamma Lal and later on keeps on decreasing and towards the end of Ramadan it becomes released. So a person should not do the act out of zeal and enthusiasm as a

00:18:22--> 00:19:04

prophet said that the act should be constant that's better, even though it's few rather than you know, doing many and doing for a short time. So a person should do acts which are constant and should be strong in faith. And the last point is that, as it's mentioned that the Muslim Salaam, Muslim Mr. Ward number two page number 230 Hadith number 7148 that the Beloved Prophet said that in the month of Ramadan, the Satan is the devil's that chained and the doors of Paradise open and the gates of hell are closed. So but natural. The temptation is that during the month of Ramadan, because the devil is chained, the moment of nun gets over the temptation is more the devil is morph

00:19:04--> 00:19:49

to you, the more chances you deviate from the truth and in the month of Ramadan, the gates of hell are close the doors of heaven are open to more chances of doing good deeds. So these are the few points which are the reasons why person does not remain steadfast after the middle from that. How can we overcome these shortcomings which make us seemingly worse after Ramadan? Sometimes rather than better? How can we overcome the shortcomings which lead us into this situation? First, realize that Ramadan is not a sort of tradition, or a custom that we have to pray and fast No, and only do these acts because it's a particular time period. It should rather be to so Allah subhanaw taala for

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala because it's the fourth and if you do it the right way it will remain toward the inshallah and Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter 15 was the man

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

And so high Lord, until we are a certain that we until you're dead. That doesn't mean you only serve and worship Allah subhanaw taala in the month of Ramadan, so even throughout your life, till the last day of your life till you die

00:20:12--> 00:20:58

and we should strive in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we should be with people who are righteous after the month of Ramadan is over, we should be with people who are righteous who are on the straight path. So that, as the Quran says that help each other and taqwa have to guide each other and help each other to learn the nature of the faith, so that we are on the right path. And we should not find it difficult to perform acts of worship, we should not find it as boring or as burdensome because people don't know the real reason that is the reason they feel it is boring etc. And we have to strive for the right thing Allah says in the Quran Institute and boot camp number 29

00:20:59--> 00:21:43

was the mystics tonight, if we strive in our path, we will open up a pathway for you. You have no way of Allah subhanaw taala just trying to be of Allah subhanaw taala He will make the task easy for you. And Hadith of the Prophet Musa al Salaam, which I mentioned, it's a Muslim one number 400 number 6778, where the beloved partner celestron said that Paradise is surrounded by hardships, and Hell is surrounded by temptations. You know, so people think it's very hard to do all these acts of worship, and the good deeds and the tempted by the Satan, towards the hell. So we should avoid the hot water shaytan that's the footsteps of the devil and stay on the straight path. That's very

00:21:43--> 00:22:12

important. And we should see to it, that we should strive in Allah subhanaw taala xvie and beyond hardship will benefit us in this world as well as Nara. And the best wa for this is that really our life philosophy not Allah, which mentioned the Quran in surah anom chapter number six was the 162 which says that enough allottee Manu Suki, Amaya Omar De La, La La mean that Verily,

00:22:13--> 00:22:47

my prayers and my service for sacrifice, and my life and my debt are all for la semana de la who is the cherisher of all the world. So, we till the last minute and we pray to Him, that my prayers only to you and my service and sacrifice for you alone my life and my that is for you alone, the Lord of all the words and then inshallah Allah will keep us on the straight path and that will help us to be set for the next inshallah. And I mean may Allah put this hole in that condition in sha Allah

00:22:48--> 00:22:59

Zakat, since Ramadan is the month of the trains your mind towards patience. Could you tell the viewers about the significance of patience

00:23:00--> 00:23:39

as far as the word patience is concerned that is subpar. It's mentioned in the Quran 102 times, and it is one of the most important virtues in Islam. And through patience, you can come closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And the Quran says in several places that Allah is those are patient. Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was from 45 that seek Allah help with patience, perseverance and prayer. And it is indeed hard except for those who are humble. Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 153 Yeah, you will Xena Manas. The enormous Sabri of Salah in allama Sabri that, oh you believe.

00:23:41--> 00:24:19

Seek Allah help with patience, perseverance, and prayer. For verily, Allah is with those who patiently persevere a lot of criticism, the message in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 155 to 157. That, surely, we will test you with something of fear and hunger, with loss of goods and lives and fruits of toys. And those are successful, those who patiently persevere and there was continuous and when struck with a calamity,

00:24:20--> 00:24:42

they say, in Melilla, he was in LA by June that from him become and when we return from Allah subhanaw taala we come and trim is our return. The law talks about patience about perseverance. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Imran Chapter number three was number 200. That oh you believe persevere impatient, and constancy

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

and strengthen each other so that you may prosper?

00:24:47--> 00:24:53

Allah says in the Quran in surah hood, Chapter 11, was come 150 and be steadfast in patience.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

For Verily Allah will not suffer the reward of those righteous

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

Allah repeats a message in Surah. Chapter 16 was the only seven that Be patient For verily patient is from Allah. And one of the criteria to go to Jenna is sobor. This patient, Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Azhar chapter 103 was 123. well as in Southern Illinois in Amarillo, I'm going to folly hottie with wasabi lacquered, wasabi Sabra. Indeed, mankind is in a state of loss except those who have faith, those of righteous deeds, those who exhort people to throw and those eggs are people deficient in proceedings

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

with Jana is

00:25:39--> 00:26:12

that you should have sub the minimum for creditable agenda Eman, righteous deeds exhorting people to exhorting people to patient procedures, if any one of them is missing, under normal circumstances admission on board agenda. Because Allah says that patience is a requirement. If I was to forgive you, it's a different question. As Allah says in Surah chapter four verse 48, instantly such a performance 216 If Allah pleases me forgive anything, but the sin of shall not forgive, but under normal circumstances, if any one of these four criteria are missing, you should not return and one of them is subpar.

00:26:14--> 00:26:19

And in the Quran, in Surah, surah chapter 94 was five and six

00:26:20--> 00:26:44

fish in the model sudo surah, when the model sutra, after every difficulty, there is reward, after every difficulty, there is success, that means hard times are there, but inshallah, in the end, there is success. So, we have to be on the straight path from the server. And the translation of software as I mentioned, it is patience, it leads to

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

self restraint.

00:26:47--> 00:26:50

And suffer also means constancy

00:26:52--> 00:27:19

it means forbearance, it means endurance, it means perseverance or various different shades. And if a person is patient, then it gets in success, a person who is impatient, he gets irritated, he gets angry, he is very short tempered, he may fire some of his staff, he may lose his school, he may behave badly with other people. So, efficiency is very wrong

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

thing what you can do, you cannot do because of impatience, and if a person does come and sober, he can think properly and success is more closer to him, an impatient person, he gets violent, he gets irritated, he gets frustrated, and the thing which he can do cannot be done. Now, the patience converts a thing which I can do into a thing which I can do. And patience is very important for success in this world, as well. I

00:27:47--> 00:28:11

mean, Allah subhanaw taala rid us of these negative qualities and allow us to have sabotage and succeed ultimately, in the hereafter. inshallah, next question, Dr. Zakir relates to the fact that now goes from a down is over, and the devils are set free. Many of the youth, not to mention other people.

00:28:12--> 00:28:24

adults as well, will revert to their bad habits of watching television, could you shed some light on the issue of watching television and its harmful effects.

00:28:25--> 00:28:30

Television does multiple times more harm than good?

00:28:32--> 00:28:56

it harms the person spiritually, morally, socially, and economic ways. There are various again, you will talk only on the effects of television. Number one, is that I call it rather, it's a fatwa to shaytan it's the footstep of the devil for many reasons, number one is that

00:28:57--> 00:29:10

it many a time prevents a person from offering Salah, a person gets addicted to the tea. So Muslims, though he realizes the time is okay, we have to find without the five minutes and he watches the program the soap or the opera whatever it is, and Mr. Salah

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

number two,

00:29:13--> 00:29:16

there is too much of obscenity

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

on the television,

00:29:19--> 00:29:55

normal channels that you see then which channels do you find so much of obscenity? And Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 24 was the machete say to the living man that he should lower is given goddess modesty. Whenever a man looks at a woman, if any unashamed, taught any bit and taught communally managed to lowercase the next verse speaks for the woman. So they do chapter 24 verse number 31, say to the believing woman, that she should know what to give them garden modesty, that when she looks at any man and initiates competition over the case, so now how can a Muslim watch television on which you find ladies without hijab, a modest many of them, the clothes

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

that they they expose more of the body than the body so but now

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

Most of the channels that you see more than 99% you can safely say

00:30:06--> 00:30:48

more than 99% from a firearms concern people you excuse Oh, why not news to 11 news channels the ladies that become you know, the rest of them having a job etc. And the facility that is there, it is tremendous and there are many reports which if time permits, and the second is obscenity on the television. Number three is Dexter against that when we see any channel, the replacements, the entire person two by three which are not required, you may see a latest car that was launched to the market and your desire will be the to buy, you may want to buy a big house or T which aren't required of like should extra wagons, as Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 17

00:30:48--> 00:30:54

verse number 26 and 27 Do not be extravagant Do not be a spendthrift For verily, the person who spent it is a bit of the devil.

00:30:56--> 00:31:16

The fourth point is that it leads unnecessary the storage of glamour and fame. The person tries to get involved in that glamorous world, seeing the actors and the other people and the time imitate them and emulate them, they become their idols and they become the heroes rather than Hamas. Hello, Solomon, the Savas.

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

Number

00:31:19--> 00:31:25

five, is that there's too much of violence on the television. And that really

00:31:27--> 00:31:30

influences a person's lifestyle. And there's several reports on that too.

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

Furthermore, there's too much of drug addiction that too much of fighting, etc, which a person gets involved, you know, oh, no, it's nice to have drugs. When a person a young person sees that he tries to at least try it out. And that's our definition increases, alcoholism increases. And there are various just to culture. I'll just give you some of the reports. The special report done only on the effect of television on children.

00:31:54--> 00:32:10

And since 1950, more than 1000 surveys and researches were done on the effects of television, on children and young adults. And according to a survey, which was present in the senate committee of judiciary in USA, in 1989.

00:32:11--> 00:32:45

It says that because of young children, and young adults watching television, it makes their lifestyle violent, the aggressive, and the unsocial according to the report of Houston service conducted in 1982. By the time a child reaches the age of 18. And if you've watched television, the average hours that a person USA watches, he would have viewed 200,000 violent acts on television, and 40,000 murders. Imagine what impact will have on the young mind

00:32:47--> 00:33:17

and report of the American Council of Pediatrics in the year 2001. It says that death in children and young adults and adolescence only due to violence. That is homicide, suicide. And trauma is much more than diseases, much more than cancer, much more than congenital heart disease the deaths caused by these volumes. And furthermore, according to research done by the Kaiser

00:33:18--> 00:33:59

Foundation, in 2005, it said that on an average, an average American child watches television every week, for 44 and a half hours. That means every day he watches television, and sits in front of the computer game or in front of the computer screen, or put together for about six and a half hours every day. That is there is no activity, there's more than sitting in front of the television screen or the computer screen. More than sleeping typically the only thing we miss sleep mode otherwise any activity that it does maximum is disk, and the impact it has on the lifestyle on the behavior is drastically negative. The research is done on what effect does a video album has you know you have a

00:33:59--> 00:34:19

lot of video elements coming up and dancing and singing and music. It takes a person away from Allah subhanaw taala. If I say it's called auto shaytan there are researches on the sex shown on this television. It's tremendous maximum number of channels on the satellite TV. In America, it's pornographic channels.

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

in UK, it's pornography channel, the maximum profit the percentage of profit made many channels are the pornographic channels and the cheapest route on the channel to the pornographic channel. And even the entertainment channels have started getting obscenity on it to attract the people. And people get slowly and slowly alluded towards it. And India which is the conservative country, eastern part of the world. Maybe a few decades back when we see

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

the way the movies were made in India. If that to show a love scene, this to show two flowers that said indicating love See, later on. We had the hero hero in there running around the tree to show love see now you

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

See them openly kissing on the street, in the movies.

00:35:06--> 00:35:21

So that's how it started. They're showing a symbolic lovemaking with flowers. And then we see today that open, openly sleeping and showing all the scenes and all. And it's even getting into the nominal,

00:35:22--> 00:36:02

from television channels, and you're the fashion TV and all the you know, therefore, we are very particular that in our school, all the children are studying in a school, in the house in the family, there should be no cable TV, even if they want to see pitch TV. If they have a private dish, we only pitch TV comes as permitted. But if they have the cable TV, along with another 100 or 80 haram channels, can we say don't see pitch TV? Well, Islamic Sharia says let us small rush take place to prevent a big loss. So the bigger loss is the Haram channels. The small benefit is a piece TV. But best is to have only piece TV, have a decoder, see the channel, that's fine. And there are

00:36:02--> 00:36:35

very few channels which has some again, getting people to the straight path very few, the person digitally less than 1% of the channels. So we paid a lot of data that means more channels, and even Islamic channels should say to them the Quran Sunnah, that's important, whether they get deviated with this media, the film industry, you know, tend to get more popular slowly, slowly, the time deviate. So we pray that we be on the straight path. So this is just In short, the few effects of TV and you can go talk on this. And finally, Zakir

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

What are your well to sum up? What are your final parting words of advice to the viewers

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

on

00:36:48--> 00:36:53

the number of interviews that we've had during this month of Ramadan on the topic, Ramadan?

00:36:54--> 00:36:56

As I mentioned in the first episode,

00:36:57--> 00:37:00

that all the answers that I gave

00:37:02--> 00:37:13

I'm a student of knowledge, I'm not a scholar, all the answers all the questions you asked me and all the answers that I gave, they were given by the other scholars, I consider myself to be a student of knowledge.

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

But only thing that I did is I went through the various answers given by different scholars

00:37:21--> 00:37:59

and I checked up and I give the references These are great scholars do nothing and I quoted those scholars who are on the front and say Hadith. So I know that because as I mentioned earlier, that as far as the month of Ramadan is concerned directly there are only four verse in the Quran Surah Baqarah chapter two was the monitor three was 184 was 185. And was the man at 74. Was that again very clear that was not the most of the answer from the Hadith. So but some of the scholars gave answer which are from zafer de moda Hadith. So that's what I did. I only quoted those scholars who give the answer from the study.

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

There may be some of the viewers who may have felt dejected, who may have felt bad that Mansur didn't tally with the answer that they had in mind. So I apologize.

00:38:11--> 00:38:15

That I'm sorry, but the truth is they what I did was only

00:38:17--> 00:38:53

went through the various answers and presented answers which was more close to foreign, and they say Howdy. That's all. But all the answers, none of them are my own answers. It had been given by some scholar or the other because they have the right to give otherwise, I don't have a right to give whatever only thing I did that I presented, I collected it and give the references. And while giving references, I made it a point that sins are interviewed in English. All those are the things that are singlish accorded from the English source as far as the Quran is concerned on my conditions, from the English transcripts the Quran of abrasively and say International. And I felt the need to

00:38:53--> 00:39:09

concern all the edits are not translated in English. Most of the data have been transferred except for some intermediate, some of it not completely translated. So the references that I gave are mainly from the English translation of the deed.

00:39:10--> 00:39:28

The most common that accorded is say Buhari, I gave the transition from the English translation done by Muhammad Mohsin Khan, which was published by darussalam. in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, my translation references of say Muslim Well, from the book, which was translated by

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

Abdullah Mr. Dickey,

00:39:32--> 00:39:36

and published from the RBA, that's in Beirut Lebanon.

00:39:38--> 00:39:53

That it is from Suna Buddha with the references and the translation was the one done by Professor Ahmed Hassan. The publishers were from Qatar born New Delhi, India, the translation from Sundar Pichai, the references and the translation, the English translation done by

00:39:54--> 00:39:55

Muhammad,

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

Boss Dickey and the publishers. Were at

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

obligations from Lahore Pakistan and of its own an imager they use translation was done by

00:40:07--> 00:40:14

Muhammad to fill in Friday and the publisher world Ghazi publication Lahore Pakistan and

00:40:15--> 00:40:22

the other English translation which accorded was Mata which was done by F

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

which was published

00:40:27--> 00:40:51

from Beirut, Lebanon. So, these mean seven sources of Hadith translated English, which occur very often the differences are mainly from the English sometime it differs from the Arabic source to people in the Czech that we find it to be different as far as the other books of Hadith mainly in Arabic. So, the differences are, you know the Arabic life so nanton May the Muslim amod sunon bakkie also,

00:40:52--> 00:40:57

Muslim, Hakim masana nabeshima ba ba, ba Santa Rosa,

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

say, say,

00:41:01--> 00:41:04

say a turkey, say Jamia

00:41:06--> 00:41:19

silicea de brainian, etc etc. So just to make it a note because normally when I give references and people verify they should go to the right source that I've given them. So just my advice that this was a little bit what I could do

00:41:20--> 00:42:03

in my way in trying to give to the English audience, an overall view of Ramadan, Malik separate from me, and all the good and all the writing that I said is from Allah subhanaw taala and all the wrong things from me and from the shaytan and ask Allah for forgiveness for that. And if Allah Subhana Allah accept my effort do I fought and the force of the viewers in trying to strive in His way and trying to come closer to a spark male accepted? I mean, I mean, I mean Alhamdulillah I think you've virtually said everything that I was gonna say Alhamdulillah but suffice it to say that it's been a pleasure to interview you over these 30 or so days. It's been my pleasure to come on. I'm glad of

00:42:03--> 00:42:35

that as well. And I think that this is something we've set up now which is probably going to continue next year and the year after inshallah, if Allah subhanho wa Taala allows us the life in our limbs to continue the work of Allah subhanho wa Taala his work is righteous work in giving knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the whole of humanity, as it has been described in the Quran. This is what it's all about.

00:42:36--> 00:42:48

Well, Dr. Zakir jazak Allah And may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward you for all your effort over the last 32 days you will you do immensely enjoyable as I've said to you before the hamdulillah Allah award sharp

00:42:50--> 00:43:04

brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity, viewers of peace TV, may Allah subhanho wa Taala keep you steadfast upon the deen from this Ramadan until the next Ramadan, you and us

00:43:06--> 00:43:09

Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
