Next question. So gentlemen, who says he's an engineer final year would be graduate student. His final year examination lies in the month of Ramadan. We were talking about last Ramadan, I believe his mother and his parents have advised him not observed the fast during the month of Ramadan is it may affect his examination results is he exempted from fasting on this basis, a person who does not want to fast only because of the examination, it is not a valid reason.
Even though it may be a final exam, and maybe the parents may coax that don't fast brother, if you fast, then maybe your concentration go down, and the results will become less, even if the parents force at this point of time, the child, the son or the daughter should not listen to the parents. Because if the parents tell you something, which is against the digital land,
that's the only time where they can disobey the parents. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, uncovered, chapter nine verse number eight, as well as instead of man, Chapter 31, verse number 15, that if your parents force you, or strive, do jihad, to make you worship somebody else besides Allah subhanaw taala don't obey them, but yet live with them with love and compassion. So your Quran gives you permission, because that is not a legitimate reason that because the examination is there, they don't want to fast so that they can get good marks, getting marks in the era. Doing a fries is more important.
That is the reason this is not a valid reason, and the person should get fast inshallah Allah will help him and he will do better in the examination with the help of Allah is more important than any other help. And Allah says in the Quran in surah noumenon chapter number three was 260 If Allah helps you, men can overcome you. If Allah for 60, who is dead then who can help you. So let the believers put their trust in Allah subhanaw taala so my advice is that even if the examination let them first, inshallah the concentration better and they get better marks in Shell
