dear brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh me the peace, mercy and 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 will be discussing the topic suhoor and if ta takasaki assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato walakum wa salam rahmatullah wa barakato. How are you today? Fine, thank you. hamdulillah. I'd like to start the topic with an essential one, even myself, I'm not 100% sure of the implications of the terms. So hoard. And if Todd, could you shed some light on these terms for us? Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam, ala rasulillah Allah Allah si between Ahmedabad, also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbish le sadri were Silvia Marie wahala, Melissa de f Dr. Li, the word
suhoor. It is derived from the Arabic word SAR, which means the later part of the night, and it's plural is called as a char. And Arabic word seafood means a meal, which is taken just before the break of dawn. And the Arabic word food is the act of taking the meal suffer. So food is the act. And so who is the pre dawn meal,
as far as the Arabic word is concerned? The word iftaar is derived from the Arabic word father, which means to pay or which means to break. And the word food means the meal taken to break the fast and that'll be what if star means the act of taking the meal to break the fast. I say to Dr. Zakir, what is the significance of taking the Soho the pre dawn meal, according to the sale of a beloved Prophet, Mr. Salim is mentioned in, say Buhari one, number three, in the book of fasting Hadith number one nine to three, that a beloved Prophet said that Sahaba the pre dawn meal in it is blessing, as mentioned in Sahih, Muslim world number two in the book of fasting, how did number 2413
that it's mentioned that the difference between the fasting of the Muslims and the People of the Book delicata did you then Christian is the taking off the Sahara, the pre dawn meal. So that is act which differentiates between the fasting of the Muslims and the people of book digital in the Christian. It's mentioned in the sissala saya, one 300 number 1045. Our beloved prophet masala Salim said that blessings are found in three things.
One is the drama, that is a congregation. The truth is a period. That's sort of a food. And the third is the sahoo, the pre dawn meal.
A similar method is depicted in social media, or number 300 number 1291, where our beloved Prophet said, blessings are in two things. One is the hood. And one is a just a measurement that is well being.
And there are several Hadith in which a beloved provenance wasallam he has talked about
that in his blessing and it's better for the Muslim ummah. It's also mentioned in say, a jammy one number one, number 36831 of the Sabbath enters the house with profit when he's having sold. And the Prophet says that, in this hour is a blessing, so do not leave it.
And the feminine message is given in Muslim Ahmed, where the Prophet said that, so who is bested, so do not leave it even if you have a gulp of water because Allah and His angels
They send blessings on the person who has the hole.
And similar messages during several say headed, including Sona without volume number two, how did number 2337, where a person enters when the prophet of Heaven is sore, and the Prophet says, that has to hold, it is a blessing for you, and in the soul is a blessing. So there are various added talking about the blessings of God. So it is anathema. And the reason the Prophet always said that have food so that the people don't overburden themselves, because when we first they should have this, so that, you know, don't overburden cells, and they have the proper fast. Okay, thank you very much for that answer doctors. Okay, just some a little question. Or it could be just clarification
regarding the historical significance from the court an regarding so who the pre dawn meal before the court and stipulated exactly how it should be taken, how did the Sahaba the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam start and begin the fast before the Quran gave the exact details of the timings of the who, etc, the Sahaba of the profit before the Quranic verse of Surah Baqarah chapter two verse 27, was revealed. These two follow what was practiced earlier by the Anakata by the people of the book, and that you get from various recorded living from the Hadith, that cetera. And at that time,
they were supposed to have the star immediately after sunset, and one of them went to sleep. They could not have any meal than that too fast the complete next day, and they could only have the meal next day after sunset. So this was a practice that was followed here. And they've added, which is mentioned in say Buhari, Book of fasting, how did number 1915 where it mentions about a Saba by the name of Christ, administer morale, and sorry, and he comes Monday to the house at the time of thought, after doing a lot of hard work, and because his wife that I'm hungry, please can have some food for thought. So device says, There's no food in the house, I will go and get from outside. So
when she goes out to get food,
because this Saba Tasman lobby prevent him. He was very tired. So before the wife comes back, he goes to sleep, sleep addiction. So by the time the wife comes back, and she sees the husband sleeping, he says, Oh, what a disappointment. Now we can't have the meal. So when he gets up,
next day, he could not have the food, and he had too fast the whole next day, and by the time evening comes, he faints. So that would matter to the Prophet, and told him what had happened. And after that, the verse of the Quran Surah Baqarah, chapter number two was number one in December was revealed that you can approach your wife and eat and drink
until the white thread of Dawn is differentiated from the black thread. So then, with rules laid down, that means you could eat the full night. And then there was communication fast till the night falls within sunset. So before the voice was revealed, the action of the first four different there could have only one meal immediately after sunset, and once they sleep, they could not have again, until this was our sort of Baccarat chapter two was my descent. And that's what we follow today.
Well, that's very comforting to know that we we can have the dawn meal because I think a lot of people will be suffering otherwise at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, takasaki. You mentioned the verse just now can we just ask you the significance of that verse, eat and drink until the white thread of Dawn is distinct from the black thread. When this was was revealed, for the first time pseudepigrapha was the 187. It said that eat and drink till the white thread you can differentiate from the black thread moment this verse was revealed.
The sabas understood the meaning of the words was revealed. And it's mentioned in sale Buhari, one number six.
That when Saba The moment he heard this verse, he took two strings, one black and one white, and he kept beneath his pillow. And when you got up for so he tried to differentiate between the white string from the blank string and it could not really understand so we went to the prophet and asked him what does it mean. And another deed is mentioned in say Buhari, or number 600. Number 4510. Which says that one Saba, he took two threads, one black thread and one white thread, and he tied it in his toes in the legs, and he kept on eating until you can differentiate between these two threads. But when they went to the profit
What does it mean that until you can differentiate the white thread from the black thread, then the Prophet made them understand what it actually means is until you can differentiate the white thread of dawn, that means the light of dawn from the black thread of night.
And then the verse was revealed incomplete. And the word of dawn was revealed later on first of us was, until you can differentiate the white thread from the black thread, then Allah reveals in between, by thread of dawn, the complete was then is revealed. So that was made clear. And our beloved prophet masala sallam, he explained the meaning of two fighters. And he said, that the first fighter is known as the first fighter, where you see a vertical white streak of light, which is somewhat similar to the tail of a fox, but that is known as the first fighter. And the second factor, which is the True Father is when the redness of light, it spreads horizontally in the sky,
which you can see it in the mountains and ridges, the houses and the streets. So that is the true factor, that is the break of dawn, when a person should stop eating at the time. And this is clarified further, in the Hadith of the Prophet masala Salaam. It's mentioned in a say, hadith of Albuquerque, Hadith number 8003, where the Prophet said, the first fudger does not prohibit you from eating the food, and it does not make the fudger prayer lawful.
And the second factor, that the true factor, it makes the eating of food prohibited and it makes the fudger Salah lawful. So we made the differentiation between the two types of fudger and furthers mentioned in the hadith of So number one, number two, in the book of fasting, added number 2348 where the Prophet said, Let the people continue eating and drinking and should not stop when they see the white vertical light.
And they should keep on eating until they see the horizontal redness of fudger that is the true feature.
And it for the mentioned in say Muslim woman number two in the book of fasting, how did number 2407 and 2408 How did I Sherman Lupita. She said that let not the call of Bella Miller pizza Tim and the whiteness of the first fudger deceive the people and let them know stop eating. That means they can continue eating. And there's another Hadith which says that let not the call of other Bilaal deceive you continue eating until you hear the call of Tommy McCune. So this actually is the complete meaning of the Quranic was that you can eat until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct from the black thread of night. Thank you very much for the answer. Dr. Zakir Is there any specific time for
taking this or mentioned in the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu as far as the Sahara is concerned, so who is the pre dawn mean? It can be taken any time from midnight, up to just before the break of dawn. And as the Quran says, which I mentioned earlier, in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 187. Eat and drink until the white thread of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread. So you can have the soul anytime from midnight, up to the break of dawn. But according to the son of the Prophet, it is preferable to delay the sower as late as possible. And just before the break of dawn, that is preferable. And there are various Hadith mentioning about that. The Hadith,
which is mentioned in muslin enough
ibni shaybah added number 9057 where a man designa Bassman I appreciate him that he had the suhoor till he doubted it was breaking down the moment he had a doubt it was breaking down. He stopped stepping up Bassman llopis with me said that keep on having the meal until a doubt is clarified that the dawn has broken Thomas piece paper and said it's mentioned in say Buhari one number three in the book of fasting Hadid number 1921 Zed, Ben tabet, mellow please with him. He said that after he gets over the Prophet, he went for Salah. And then he asked the Prophet, what is the time difference between the soldier and the other? So the Prophet replied, It is equal to the time required to
recite 50 verses of the Quran furthers mission in sable hardy board number three in the book of fasting, how did number 1918 and how did number 1919 were the Dasha Milla be pleased with her. She said that the Prophet
said that when you hear the other one when you hear Bellarmine Lopez in pronounce the call for prayer for nausea, then please don't get deceived. Right and continue eating and drinking until you You're
the other one of
them. Four he does not pronounce the Adhan until it is done. That means you can eat till dawn. That is the time for food. But there are various Hadith talking about the fullness of delaying the soul. It's mentioned in Sage ami on number one, how did number 2835 with a beloved partner Salah Salaam said that you should Histon in bringing the fast and delay in having the soul.
It's further mentioned in
a say a deed of Albuquerque added number 8127. That the sahabas They were the first to break the first. And they were the last to do this
for this mission in the city of Albuquerque. How did number 8125 in which partners are some said that V profits have been commanded that we should be the first to break the fast and the last to take the sword and place our right hand or the left when we have a Salah. So based on these Hadith, it shows that sword can be had from a time between midnight to a break of dawn, but it's preferable delaying so
is it allowed for one to eat and drink? Even when the more than announces the quarter prayer for pleasure? Is it allowed to eat and drink some people? I'm sure of whether it's correct or not. But some people believe that you can eat and drink all the way up to the pleasure of them and beyond. I'm aware that there are some Muslims who believe that you can eat and drink until the further other ends.
And there are some people who when they can hear various other of different MOS from the house. They wait till they hear the end of the last one. So if they can hear five six or then they wait till the last one ends till that time the end. In fact this is not proved from any of the Hadith of the Prophet and anyone who innovates a new thing in the deen it has to be rejected. It's mentioned in the hadith of say Buhari volume number 300. Number 2697 that anyone who innovates a new thing in the deen it has to be rejected. In fact, it's clearly mentioned the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 187 that eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you
from the black thread. That means the moment don't bricks moment, you're there then you have shopping. And other code earlier that detox a Buhari one number three book of fasting, how did number 1918 and number 1919. We heard I'm in love with brigitta. She said when you heard the other end of Bellarmine Lupita. Tim continue eating and drinking until you hear the add on of Mach two. For when you give the add on into the time for fudger that dawn picks up. That means the moment you hear the other half stop at
the moment you stop eating. But there is a concession given by a beloved partner so seldom, it's mentioned as I had it off.
So number one, number two, in the book of fasting 100 number 2343. With the Beloved Prophet said, and venue, you're the other one. And if you have drinking wrestling in your hand, you are allowed to satisfy yourself from that wrestle.
That means a beloved prophet has given a confession that while you're eating or drinking something is in your hand, you can complete it. But that doesn't mean that if you have a big sandwich in your hand that you completed, if you have a bite left of the sandwich in your hand, and then you've had it's fine when ordering a glass of water, and there is something left in it, you can have it That doesn't mean you can go out of your way and touch your hand and pick up another glass of water and keep on having a big burger or a sandwich or keep on eating for a few minutes after the other and started and it's the misconception that you can eat till the end of the day. There is no hardeep
Singh that because you start there then the moment the father prayers, time starts a moment. It is the break of dawn doesn't have to be given the moment to hear the other if you stop eating, Zakir when is the correct and the best time to break the fast. The best time to break the fast is as soon as nightfalls as the Quran says in Surah Baqarah chapter two verse 27. Eat and drink
Until the white thread of non becomes distinct to you from the black thread, and keep the fast until nightfall.
The moment you see the sunset, that is the best time that should be the first. And there is a date of samsara seldom mentioned in say Buhari, we're number three in the book of fasting, added number one nine FIFO. With the Beloved Prophet said, when you see the night falls from this side, and the day vanishes from this side, and the disk of the Sun sets, you have to break your fast.
And I mentioned my I will save my life either Tim, or say Buhari on number three book of fasting, chapter number 45. He said, we brought the fast movement, we saw that the sun had set and our beloved prophet masala, as I mentioned earlier, it's mentioned in say, jammy one, number one, number 2835, that a beloved Prophet said that you should hasten in breaking your fast and you should delay yourself or it's mentioned in say howdy of Albuquerque, Hadid number 8127 that the sahabas the companions of the Prophet, they were the first to break the fast and they were the last to have this over.
It's also mentioned in
bakkie, Hadith number 8125, that Prophet Muhammad Hassan said that V profits have been commanded that we have to patient in breaking our fast and delay our salute and keep the right hand or the left while offering Salah.
There are various other Hadith, which specifically mentioned that we have to hasten the breaking of the fast. It's mentioned in February, we're number three, in the book of fasting had the number 1957 that our beloved Prophet said that my people
will be on the right path till the time they hasten in breaking the fast.
It further mission in safely ban volume number 800. Number 3510. Were the beloved performance alarm said that my people will be on the sooner it is the time they do not wait for the stars to break the fast upload peninsula samosa said it's mentioned in say, bon Hadid number 3509 that the Beloved Prophet said that my religion will be seen till the time, my people the hidden in breaking the fast and not do like the Jews and Christians to delay the fast. So based on all this, say a hadith we have to realize that we have to break the fast as early as possible, it is the best
immediately after the Sensex takasaki indifference to what you've said there are some people who delay the breaking of the fast and the Maghrib prayer on the premise that they don't believe the sun is completely set. And on the basis that they believe it's always better to be on the safe side, Is this correct logic. There are a large number of Muslims who they want to be safe and the delay the breaking of fast. Even though the sun I said they said let's wait for about three or four minutes, you know, then we break because they want to be careful. Because it's odd for block producers seldom, as mentioned in sales that added number 991 where the Prophet speaks about his dream, that
he has a dream. And he's taken up. And then he hears the sound of people holding any asset that all these people, these people,
then you take into another corner, and he sees that people are hung from the hamstring and the corner of the mounts or tone and that is blood dripping. So yes, they do have these people.
So the replies These are the people who broke the fast early. So based on this idea that if a person breaks the fast early, he'll be hung from time string and his mortal bitone at the beginning of blood, people go out of their way to take a precaution and the delay by four or five minutes. Now this again is breaking early is wrong, but delaying it goes wrong.
Because as I mentioned earlier, it's still emission the Quran in surah baqarah chapter two was the money the seven that keep the fast until nightfalls. And as I mentioned earlier in the earlier answer, it's mentioned in say Buhari, volume number three in the book of fasting Hadith number 1954. A Beloved Prophet masala Sallam said that when night falls from this side, and the day vanishes from this side, and when the sunset, you break your fast
And there are various other idiots which I quoted earlier, including, say Buhari, we're number three in the book of fasting. How did number 1957, a beloved Prophet said that my people will be on the straight path till the time they hasten to break the fast. It's mentioned in sabe nibandh, volume number eight added number 3510, that the beloved partner Saracen said that my people will be on the phone till the time, they don't wait to see the stars to break the first and it also mentioned in say, the ban, volume number 800, number 3509, that the beloved partner celestron said that my religion will be seen till the time, my people hasten in breaking the fast and do not delay like the
helicopter, the Jews and the Christians. So yeah, there are various Hadith talking about you should hasten making the fast but natural, it should be after the sunset, we cannot break the fast before the sunset, but the moment it's confirmed that the sun I said with your own eyes, or nowadays that our clocks that are watching you can easily time yourself. So there's no need of waiting four or five minutes. And taking a precaution. If you do that, that for the Prophet said that Omar will not be on the sun. So to be on the sooner on the right track. The moment the sunset, you should break the fast immediately. I think it's very clear, isn't it? The answer is very clear. handler. Like so
many things in the deen very clear. What did the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam refer to eat? Breaking is fast. It's mentioned the hadith of sadhana without worm number two in the book of fasting, how did number 2349 it's mentioned that profit muscle or seldom managed to break as fast is to have fresh dates, Naruto finished it. And if it did not find fresh date, he should have died dates. And if that wasn't available, he is to have water. So the best is to have a fresh date, there are some of the profit. If you can't find fresh date, then you can have dried dates. If you can't find right then of water. If you can't find water there any food that's available, you can break
your fast. And if you can't find any food, or if you're midway traveling, then at least you break the fast with the intention you intend in your heart that are broken. And the sooner you find food, you can have it behind Allah hopefully we won't be in that situation. These days. One never knows, Doctor is what's the best thing to announce whilst you're breaking the fast the dua or the prayer or any announcement which is specific for breaking the fast. Many Muslims they say many doors before they put the food in the mouth. And all these doors that is they have breaking the fast. Most of them they are very for their unauthentic demo do the authentic door while breaking the fast is off
soon enough without warning one number two, Book of fasting. How did number 2350 in which the Prophet decided it's mentioned zabba sama wapella de ruku whatever the inshallah which means that the toast has been quenched, the winds have been moistened.
And the reward is certain
if allowables now, don't destroy the tender some of them say this door before they put the food in the month before the very the fast which by meaning itself it doesn't make sense. This door is supposed to be said after you put the food in the mouth.
The right thing is before you put the food in the mouth, you have to say Bismillah that will practice of preference for a solemn and after he ate the dates and what he ate food and had water then the door make sense as Hubbard sama wapella to ruku Raj inshallah, which means my thirst has been quenched only when you have water again it has been quenched. How can you say this? Well before you break the fast only after you break the fast and you had dates and you had the fruit so you had the food and then you had water can you say that mid thirst had been quenched and my veins moistened and the reward is certain inshallah and there are various other added of a blood pregnancy. So I
started the doula immediately before bringing the first say Bismillah and after breaking in a toaster squinch your fridges door, but there are other Hadith. It's mentioned in omnimaga volume number 300. Number 175 to the Beloved Prophet said that the doula of three people are never unanswered is the always answered. That is the doula the application of adjust ruler, and Imam, the doula of a person who fast until you break too fast, and the door of an oppressed the same message repeated in every major volume number three
habit number 1753 that a person who fasts is due I accepted when he bakes as fast. So before breaking the fast you can do any dollar you can pay to Allah subhanaw taala. in your own language in the Arabic urbinati method, Dhoni has never been anywhere you can ask Allah for forgiveness after supplication. Whatever you feel, you can ask, this is the best time before breaking the fast. Thank you very much, Dr. zakia. And now we are furnished with the information, we can go out there and break our fast, more appropriately in sha Allah de Zakir. Now we've completed the interview stage on soeharto. And if that, once again, we have many questions from the audience. And I think it's time
that we answered some of them, don't you?
The first question, remember the audience, he asks, or he or she could be different ours are recited at the beginning of the fast during the Sahar, which is the most authentic, as far as decoding any door. I do not know of any say, in which the Prophet has resided in the door at the full time, or any of the Sahaba has mentioned any door. I don't have any. In fact, what a prophet said. It's mentioned in the hadith of Timothy in the book of fasting, Hadith number seven and Paddy, a beloved Prophet said that anyone who has not intended to fast before dawn, there's no fast for him.
The prophets have said, or these of us only say, in the book of fasting, how did number 231, a beloved prophet of Islam said, there is no fast for a person who has not intended to fast the night before. That means intention is compulsory. For fasting, it should be done before the break of dawn. Or that it says that the night before means any time before the break of dawn you can intend but when you intend, you need not say it loudly. It's not required rohinton in the heart. So the main thing you intend in your heart that you want to foster. And that's sufficient. When you want to pray you intend to do need for praying and you pray, you don't have to say it loudly to say me, you don't
have to say that I intend to fast. But many people many of the Muslims have invented words in Arabic or in different languages that I intend to fast tomorrow, et cetera, et cetera, which we don't find any of the say Hadith, and neither do we find in the sins of the Prophet of the Sabbath. So the best is to intend in your heart. That's it, and there's no particular do offers over.
Okay, that's very enlightening, and answer, Hope that answers the question of the parties in the audience. Next question from our audience. If a person has the intention of waiting for the support, but unfortunately, he or she doesn't manage to wake up is his or her fast still accepted. If a person before sleeping has the intention of fasting tomorrow, and he had the intention of getting a foothold but could not get up for sore because he overslept, etc. Having food is not for the persona. Our beloved Prophet said in say Buhari, world number three in the book of fasting habit number one nine to three, he said that in the Sahara is a blessing. It's a sooner recommended
sooner, but if a person always sleeps, it's not a further to have so hard, because you had the intention of getting up. You had the intention to fast, fast will be accepted.
Dr. Zakir Next question. Somebody wants to know, did the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recommend any particular food for the dawn meal? It's mentioned in a say hadith of so number one number two, in the book of fasting Hadith number 2338. The Beloved Prophet said the believers made
the best is dates for so for the for the predawn mean, for the best meal is a date. The Prophet also said it's mentioned in Muslim Ahmed added number 11086, the prophet said, that have sold even if it's a gulp of water. So the best is dates, and yet other things and we should also have water so the the the thing that the Prophet recommended for dates must have amazing scientific qualities. We need a program in itself just to discuss that.
Next question, question four. There's a Hadith, which mentions that if a person eats or drinks forget fully, then Allah has provided him with food and drink. Last Ramadan, whilst fasting. My husband requested me a glass of water, not realizing that he was fasting. I served him with a glass of water and he drank should I have reminded him that he was fasting or consider it a provision from Allah. The question is rightly mentioned
That the beloved partner Salah Sallam he has mentioned in say Buhari, we're number three, in the book of fasting. How did number 1933 the blood Prophet said that if a person unintentionally out of forgetfulness, while fasting has something to eat or drink, it should complete as fast and what he has eaten and what he drank, he should think it's from Allah subhanaw taala. So but a person who has unintentional loud forgetfulness, it is totally valid. You can complete the fast but you're the husband has forgotten
the wife nude very well.
What the wife should have done was, she should have reminded the husband
because the Quran says in Surah chapter three was the 110 that morona bill Murphy was no nine one can enjoy and what is good and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. So yeah, it was the duty of the wife to remind the husband that he was fasting. And Quran says that town will be taqwa that have helped each other in good deeds, goodness and righteousness. So yeah, it was the duty of the wife because she knew that the husband was fasting, if she did not know and she gave it would have been forgiven, but because knowing very well that the husband was fasting, she purposefully gave it to him, I feel what she had done is wrong. It's a sin. But as far as the husband is concerned, he
asked for water not knowing that he was fasting is fast would be accepted, it would be completed, and that's the provisional mela. But she should have reminded him to see that fault does not at fault.
I have the answer. Dr. Zakir
another question, racing through them. Now we've got so many questions of harmala. How do we calculate a time of support. And if taught in countries, which have no distinction between night and day, as far as those countries are those cities, which have very long days, or short days, or very long nights or short nights, as long as there is clear distinction between day and night, where I can come from the sunset, and sunrise. In these countries, they have to observe the same rules of fasting, right from dawn,
to sunset, and after sunset, up to the time of dawn, they can eat and bring an approach to life. But in those countries and those places where there's no distinction between the day and night, you can't come to know when does the sun dive into the sunset, or you have day for days together for more than 24 hours, or you have night for night together? You know, for more than 24 hours. In these places, they should follow the timing of the city or the country which is closest to them, which has a clear distinction between day and night. Okay, that's very, very clear, isn't it? If a person is fasting and traveling long distance in a plane, and is midway to his destination, should he break
his fast according to the time of origin, or the time at destination, as there is a difference between the observed of several hours this normally happens then I do keep on traveling during Ramadan quite often in planes. And this is a common problem. And people are not aware of the Sharia ruling. Many of them say oh, I will break the fast according to the time of origin, some time of destination. And there'll be confusion between most of the terrorists but right ruling is that as Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah chapter two was the 187. That fast until night appears. And our beloved Prophet said in sable, hurry, one number three book of fasting habit number 195. For
that, until the sunset. So when a person is traveling in a plane, it is very easy, he should just slide the window up and see the sun, the woman the sunset, he can make it fast, he should not bother what is the time of the origin, what is the time at the destination, he should see that where he is from the position where he is the moment if he sees the sun set, complete disk has vanished. You should be the first. Similarly for
the moment disease, the vertical white streak of dawn, it is the false dawn. The true Dawn is when he sees relish horizontal when he sees that it's the time for somebody to stop eating. So while a person is in a plane, it's very easy to disobey that to ask anyone outside the window up. If he's not from his side, he can go to the other side and see the sun and decide whether the time is there for sort of a star. Now he made a very what sounds a very complicated situation to be very simple In fact, Alhamdulillah that's the purpose of these programs, isn't it? handle? nother question. Question seven. If a person breaks his fast after sunset on the ground, and immediately takes off in
a plane and then sees the sun does he have to stop eating
Is his first valid or should he repeat it.
And the solution can have been to traveler that he's in a place and the time for a star, that's an asset. And he has a thought. And immediately the plane takes off maybe two minutes after the sunsets at six o'clock, and 6022 minutes after six o'clock, the plane takes off. And the woman the plane takes off, it goes at a high altitude. And at that time, you can see the sun. So what happened does he have to stop at the person who has completed his fast where he was staying, the first is valid, he doesn't stop eating, the first of that day is finished, he has completed the fast he can have the star, even when he goes to high altitude and he sees the sun, he did not stop eating is fastest
completed. But on the other hand, if a person takes off two minutes before at 558, or two minutes to 62 minutes balance to break a fast, and if it takes off, and then feeds the sun, and he sees the sun for another 510 minutes, he should not break your fast he can say okay, while at the ground to meet for left. So now at six o'clock, the time is up, I will break my fast, because then he can see the sun. So at that time, he should continue fasting only after the sun sets, maybe after five minutes or 10 minutes or 15 minutes, that is the time that he should break up fast. And similarly, while traveling the plane. If suppose the pilot is there, and the sun can be seen, the pilot should not
take the plane down so that you can break the fast early. But if there's a technical problem, and you have to change altitude and come down and the sun sets for the person in the plane, then they can pick the first because the
next question I can hear to advance from different MOS and the timing of both the advance differ by a few minutes. When should I break fast at the first or second athon? As far as breaking or the fastest concern of the two other ones and both of them differ? You have to find out that which of the two more than mentioned the other and pronounces dad under the right time, right time is when the sunsets as our beloved Prophet commensalism said, it's mentioned in say Buhari one, number three in the book of fasting, how did number 1954 that when the night comes from this side, and the day vanishes from the side and the sunset, that I'm flipping the fast. So basically, they have to first
find out which of the two mob then is rushing the other end at the right time. Or if there's a doubt best is today's age of science and technology. We have a chart which executives the time when the sunsets and you can match it with your own watch the time or you can match the other one, which of the two more than gives right other than that right time, we should break the fast. You should not say that whichever more than gift first have to break. If there's a difference. Try and find out which of the two more than pronounces are done to the right time or best is you read yourself. You verify your watch at the right time. See the timetable and break the right thing couldn't happen in
the UK because we can't hear people reciting the athon. Unfortunately, I wish we could question nine once we invited a guest for a start. He said it is discouraged to talk whilst eating in the religion of Islam. Is he correct?
I don't know if any Hadith of the Prophet Muslim seldom, they said that you should not speak while eating etc. in federal law says in the Quran in surah chapter four verse 59, that if there is a difference go back to Atlanta for a soul there's no text in the Quran which says you should not speak while eating there's no text in the Hadith and with the Prophet commanded you should not speak while eating in fact that I did exactly the opposite the Prophet spoke while eating for example, if read the hadith of a Muslim woman number three How did number 5093 where the Prophet was served vinegar and he said that vinegar is a good food while eating.
Rather I didn't read the Prophet said that do not eat with a left hand for the Satan eats with the left hand. Again this is while at the top say Buhari volume number 700 number 5376 where the beloved partner Salah Salim said was boy was leading with profit and you're moving your hand around so the Prophet said it with right hand and eat from what is close to you. For this he said when he saw all these had the proof that there is no restriction for speaking when eating. Whenever the difference go back to online either a school and we get the answer. That's very clear. Thank you. Last question. If a person's earnings are known to be Haram, can we accept his iftaar invitation? There's
no Hadith saying that you cannot accept the invitation of a third of a person who has unlawful earning. In fact there are the showing that profitable sort of solemn he went to the meal when invited by the Jews and the Quran said the duty is to involve them so usually and usually is haram. So based on the fact
It was of various scholars, they say that a French person calls you for a star. It is a blessing for you. And I think for him, he had learned something from wrong means he'll be responsible, you won't be responsible for that. Just Dr. Zakir for that final answer that is reached the end of today's show. been talking of course, about Sahaja. And if dad, and brothers and sisters, now you've got plenty of ammunition to go forth in this Ramadan, make sure you start your fast and endure fast in the correct way. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bestow Peace and blessings upon all of us during this holy month of Ramadan. And I would ask you to join us tomorrow, same time, when we will be
