Can I talk to Jackie?
What are the reasons behind Muslims continually falling into these same errors? Ramadan after Ramadan
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while Oliver savage mean the main reason that Muslims keep on committing the same errors in the month of Ramadan regarding rules and regulation of fasting is lack of knowledge of the deen of religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the major reason for this lack of knowledge is because most of the Muslims, they do not read the Word of Allah subhanaw taala did not read the Quran with understanding.
Neither do they read the Hadith, the authentic things of the last and final messenger Prophet
was the Muslim should do is read the Quran of understanding, read the sayings of the Prophet and the seed of the Prophet, then inshallah, at least we will have the basic knowledge of our Deen including the rules and regulations of fasting. And Allah subhanho wa Taala. He always opens up his pathway. He gives guidance to the Muslims, but there is a criteria termed as a guide. Allah says in the Quran
into the uncovered chapter number 39. What's the most 69 that those who strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala those who do jihad feasable Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala opens his pathways for them to the criteria for us to get the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala the criteria for us where Allah subhanaw taala will open up our pathways is to strive in this way, could be just the civilian law. And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, chapter number 16
verse 43, as well as to the ambia chapter number 21 verse number seven, Allah says, first Alou holistically in control autonomy, which means if you do not
possess or if you doubt,
then ask the person who possesses the knowledge. If you doubt anything, ask the person who's knowledgeable,
and hamdulillah. We have in our oma several Muslims who are scholars in this team. So it's our duty to ask these colors. These people who have the knowledge of Islam, regarding the rules and regulations of our team,
as far as
fasting is concerned, which is one of the important Pillars of Islam, every Muslim should know, at least, when is the time for fasting? What are the basic rules and regulation. And today, in the age of science and technology, it's very easy to find. It is only the negligence of a Muslim that makes them aware of these things. It's very easy to digital. When is the time for fasting windows fast begin the rainbow. So when is the time for a start for breaking the fast? What are the things that break the fast etc etc. It is mainly due to the negligence and ignorance of the Muslims that we regularly keep on falling and committing the same mistakes. Furthermore, what are the common errors
that are made by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan.
The common errors committed by the Muslims in the month of Ramadan can be broadly classified into four categories. The first category is the common errors committed by Muslims regarding the obligatory rules and regulations of fasting.
The second category is the common errors committed by Muslims which are contradictory to the Sunnah of fasting.
The third category
is the errors committed by Muslims mainly
due to neglecting the obligated duties in Islam and
indulging in Acts which are prohibited.
And the fourth category is the other common errors committed by Muslims in the month of Ramadan.
Clearly, Dr. Zaki, it's going to be difficult for us to discuss all of the common errors made by Muslims during the month of Ramadan
in this one interview, but over the next 32 days, we will inshallah try to cover those issues, but could you just state or list the most grievous mistakes made by Muslims in the month of Ramadan as far as the common errors that fall in the first two categories? inshallah we'll be discussing in detail in the next inshallah 30 days.
I will, inshallah speak about the common errors committed in the third and fourth category. Before we discuss categories three and four, can we at least list the most common errors from sections one and two, the most grievious amongst the error in the first category, that is errors committed regarding the obligatory rules and regulations of fasting is the most common is that Muslims, many times, they don't do the Nia for fasting, intention is that important. Without Mia, without intention, the first thing is not accepted. So making intention is obligatory and we've been discussing this inshallah, in detail in shall tomorrow. The second error is that many times,
Muslims, even after the soldier, Asan has started, yet they continue eating and they think that the end of food time is only at the end of the ledger aza. In fact, the moment the further on starts, the moment the beginning of dawn starts, the soul time ends. So, this is error, which normally nullifies or invalidates the past.
The third error in the first category is that many people, they delay paying, there's a catalyst better
and many times the pay after the equals better
Salah if we pay does the council fitter after it will fitter then it is like normal charity, it does not come under the circumstances. So, these three are the most grievous in the first category, the common errors committed in the second category, that is errors that are contradicting the Sunnah of the fasting is number one,
many people skip this over
some people they have an early server, that is they have just over one or two hours before the budget time in fact, so, here is a blessing, every Muslim should have it and the Prophet said we should delay the food as much as possible, we will have it till just before the feature time.
The third mistake committed by Muslims in this category is that they delay opening the fast they delay they thought and a prophet Muslim said that the people will be good as long as they hasten in breaking data. That means immediately after sunset, they should make this
the fourth common error in this category is that many Muslims they read unauthentic law
most authentic door as part of the status concern is
Sahaba sama, Papa Lu
inshallah which means that
my thirst is quenched, the veins are moistened
the other is near
inshallah, God willing, the reward is new, God willing.
And some people when they read this door for breaking the fast, they say it before breaking the fast
before they put the date in the mouth, they say this, and it's contrary to the meaning. The meaning says that my thirst has been quenched. zaba Zama wok de la te ruku my thirst has been quenched and the way that we moisten, your thirst cannot be quenched before breaking the fast. So normally it should be said after you do after your water and you're satisfied, maybe After some minutes after you break the fast then you can eat this door as the habit sama cappelletti ruku
inshallah, which means
my toast had been quenched, the Weigh ins have been nice and
the reward is new, inshallah, God willing.
common error made by Muslims in this category is that many Muslims, they eat excessively during Easter, and many of them even eat throughout the night.
The seventh common error is that many of them, they are negligent, as far as service is concerned, because their arm is not affected. They think it is no problem. If a Muslim, Mrs. tarawih doTERRA is not a foul. It's a very important son, and a Muslim who Mr. Ravi is missing a great deal of reward.
And many Muslims who performed Ravi, the rate Ravi very fast and mph, they try and finish it in a short time and the defeat the purpose. In fact, you should read with a moderate pace that people understand and they grasp the message of Allah subhanaw taala. The ninth common error is that those who go for a pickup in the mosque, many of them they socialize during Ithaca, as though it's a time to meet people and friends, which is totally contrary to the Sunnah.
The 10th common error is that many of the Muslims think that the latter color is on the 27th ninth of Ramadan
and the only worship Allah subhanaw taala on this night, in fact, a beloved prophet Muslim said
search for the lead together in the odd nights of the last 10 days, the last ashra the 10 days, therefore, let's recover can fall either on the 21st night or 23rd or 25th or 27th or 29th. So, this one the common errors made by Muslims dilemma, common error is that they spend their time during Ramadan in unproductive work, rather than spending in seeker and worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. They spend the time rather for offering besides the compulsory Salah, the novel, the voluntary Salah masala, the 12th error made by the Muslims is that they should do
the 13 days they should ask for forgiveness, this month of forgiveness
footing this they should read the Quran as much as possible.
To get the rest of Allah Spano tala, the 15th is that they fast and they keep themselves hungry. But basically, they're not mentally prepared for the fast
and it is as though they're staying hungry. But the main purpose of fasting to acquire Taka is not obtained.
This was in brief regarding the second category, can you mention briefly again, categorize the common errors made in the third category.
The common errors committed by Muslims in the third category, that is errors regarding negligence in performing the fluoride, WTF in Islam is that Muslims
many of them, they stay awake all night.
They have early sore and
they do not offer the father Salah. Missing father Salah is a sin.
Many of them because they stay with the full night. They sleep the full day and they even miss the Zohar and they offer Salah which is a grave sin or trying to acquire blessings and you are neglecting the obligatory duties which is totally prohibited.
Many of the Muslims
do not give Zakat do the supposed to get suckered. And Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam in which every Muslim who has a saving of the nisab level that if those who have a savings of 85 grams of gold, they should give 2.5% of the savings every lunar year in charity, it's called a socket.
And the fourth error in this third category is that most of the Muslim gives a crap but they do not calculate the socket properly.
As far as common errors committed by Muslim ban is indulging in private acts. The most common is do these acts are prohibited for a Muslim, irrespective whether it's a month of Ramadan Ramadan, but specifically, we should be more careful. We should be careful trying to avoid these acts for the life. But in our own land, we should be more careful. And the most common number one, the Muslims involved themselves is backbiting and slandering.
backbiting is a grave sin.
And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, Chapter 14 verse number 12, that those who backbite they are people who eat the dead meat of the own brother.
So backbiting and slandering is one of the grievous sins. The second common error in this category is.
Muslims, many of them they use for speech, that allies bring them under from
the third day
They use abusive language,
which is contrary to spirit of Islam and from the 40s they use vulgar language.
And the fifth, they involve themselves in gossiping.
some of them involved in force action.
The seventh is many of the Muslims
to kill time they listen to music and understanding songs,
which is totally Providence.
The eight common error is
many of the Muslims to kill time they have watched on Islamic television programs and and Islamic movies. The ninth common error covered by Muslim is that many of the Muslims, they read an Islamic magazines and Islamic books and some pictures
which are private in Islam, the 10th common error
done by Muslims and this month is many of them, they go to an Islamic sites on the internet, which is again private
dilemmas common error is that they
and they commit extravagance
and that wealth is there is a lot of wastage of food. So, this was in brief regarding
the list of mistakes done by persons commonly in the third category, that is, indulging in Acts which are prohibited and neglecting acts which are present.
So does exactly what are the other common errors committed by Muslims during the month of Ramadan.
The other common errors covered by Muslims in the month of Ramadan, the first category is number one is that many of the Muslims, they stay awake the whole night. And then they sleep in the day
and they do the normal activity, the nighttime and sleep in the daytime, they're converting the internet and 900 a day and the whole purpose of fasting is defeated.
The second error in this category is that many of the Muslims they remain lazy and inactive during the daytime, which is contrary to the spirit of fasting. The third common error is
that many of the Muslims they try and kill the time during the day by playing
by amusement buy games, which defeats the purpose again
the foot common error is Muslims, they give lavish if third parties and they spend a lot of money many times to Shroff
the fifth common error many of the Muslims, they ask the woman folk in the family to prepare a variety of dishes for a star and for for thus making the woman in the family spend the majority of the time in the kitchen. In fact, the family should spend most of the time in women and last minute Allah and if the woman folk do more to us, inshallah, even the men will benefit even this will be forgiven inshallah.
The sixth common error is that many of the Muslims, they renovate
the house and the shop in the month of Ramadan, spend more time in that than remembering Allah subhanaw taala. The seventh common error is that many of the Muslims
they spend their nights instead of renewing Allah subhanaw taala in activities which are unproductive. For example.
They spend the time
in excessive socializing after taraweeh. The 90s many of the Muslims, they spend many nights and most parts of the nights in shopping.
The 10th common error is many of the Muslims, they spend most of the time in the night in eating
the lemons is many of the Muslims. They spend their time in Roby.
And in loitering during the night. And the 12 common areas. The last 10 days of Ramadan are mainly the days in which the Muslims should do more bother. But most of the Muslims, they spend time in shopping in celebrating and preparing themselves for it.
And most of them spend time in activity with the unproductive rather than spending the time in Nevada. These are some of the other common areas that Muslims commit
And I hope inshallah that they will abstain from these arrows.
