Could you firstly explain the term is decaf? And could you also as by way of confirming for the Muslims out there whether they should be doing this or not? Is it compulsory for all Muslims to do it? And hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah while Oliver cyberdemon My bad, I was Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbishy le sudley, with psyllium Li, one of the lessons of

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

the word at the calf is derived from the Arabic root word of mouth,

00:00:38--> 00:00:43

which means to adhere, to claim to stick. It means to keep

00:00:45--> 00:00:50

and it means to engage or devote something to another thing,

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

which may be good or bad.

00:00:55--> 00:01:11

And especially in the Quran, in Surah ambia, chapter number 21 verse number 52. when Abraham Islam, he speaks to his father and his people saying that the images which you devote

00:01:12--> 00:01:23

goes into idol worship, etc. He stated that the image which you devote, and the word use is Aki foon, which you saw devote literally attached to, which are clinging to it. Yeah, it's used in the wrong since in the negative sense.

00:01:24--> 00:01:39

There also was in the positive sense in Surah Baqarah chapter two verse 125, sorry Baccarat chapter two was 187. According to listen learn, the word ethic AF means to fully attach oneself to something.

00:01:42--> 00:02:02

It means when someone habitats, the mosque, any worship unit, in the Islamic Sharia, the word ethical means to engage and retreat in the mosque, and to stay in the mosque, seeking nearness to Allah subhanaw taala and seeking his reward.

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

As far as the rules of ethics F is concerned with its complexity or its

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

ethic AF is generally a Sunnah.

00:02:13--> 00:02:51

It's not complexity, it only becomes complicit in certain cases, if someone makes a vow to Allah subhanaw taala that he will do ethically if his wishes fulfilled. For example, someone who say that I will do ethica for two days, if my speculative is cured, or am idiotic for three days, if a person examination, so if someone vows to Allah subhanaw taala for the fulfillment of their desire, then ethic offers complicity whatever the person has vowed yes to fulfill it. Otherwise, ethic after the sooner but it is the sooner the market that are very highly recommended. So now

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

as it's mentioned, in the Hadith,

00:02:56--> 00:03:04

of say Buhari, verb number eight, in the book of oaths, and was added number 6696.

00:03:05--> 00:03:10

Were the Messenger of Allah smart Allah said that anyone who promises

00:03:11--> 00:03:21

to obey Allah subhanaw taala he should obey Him. And anyone who promises disobedience, Allah subhanaw taala, he should not disobey Him.

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

And the

00:03:25--> 00:03:35

ultimate mill I believe that he mentioned say Buhari, one, number eight, in the book of oaths and vows. Number 6697. We helped him and live up to him.

00:03:37--> 00:03:50

He says to the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala, that I had vowed in the days of ignorance, before he embraced Islam, that he will do ethica for one night in most of the Haram. So the Prophet said, that fulfill your vow,

00:03:51--> 00:03:55

because of all was good, obeying Allah subhanaw taala profits is fulfilled.

00:03:57--> 00:04:10

And there are various verses in the Quran which speak for at the calf. Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 125 he does to Abraham mini Salaam and wish manda Salaam, that or Abram and his man may peace be upon them,

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

do sanctify

00:04:14--> 00:04:32

the club of Allah subhanaw taala those of Allah subhanaw taala because people circumambulate around the Kaaba, and they stay, they do aitikaf they retreat in the mosque, and some of the believers they bow and they prostrate by worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. You hear the word ethic of retreat is used

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

it for the missions for a Baccarat chap number two was number 87 that

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

do not associate with your wives, when you retreat in the mosque will be ethical from the mosque and their activities document at the caf including, say body worn number three in the book of Attica Hadid number two zero to six. Felicia Lupita was the wife of the Prophet, she said

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

That the Prophet used to do ethica for the last 10 days in the month of Ramadan.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

And after he died, the wives of the Prophet used to continue the practice.

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

So, ethic of unless it's complicity otherwise generally it's the sooner but highly recommended some
