Regarding the intention still on the intentions issue, does one always have to make intentions regarding when you're about to fast. And secondly, the timing of the intentions, can you just say something a little bit about that? I've prayed intention is concerned, as I mentioned earlier, that intention is the fourth, and a beloved prophet muscles himself. It's mentioned in the book of fasting. Number 2331, a beloved Prophet said, a person passionate accepted, if he does not make intention in the previous night.

00:00:35--> 00:00:53

That means for all the further fasting, compulsory fasting, making intention, the previous night is complicity. It can be any part of the previous night, it can even be till as late as just before the fudger Time, any time of the night, you can make intention, a person

00:00:54--> 00:01:20

can make intention in the video from that, and it can be valid for the full month of Ramadan, unless he breaks it if he's sick. Or if he's traveling, then you have to again make intention. But one intention is also sufficient. And many people think they have a misconception that verbally saying it aloud is a must, which is not a requirement. I represent verbally that I intend to fast because my intention is from the heart. For example, if I get up late in the night,

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

much before for the time of fasting, support my son

00:01:27--> 00:01:42

when we have got up to do a super late in the night, and my son asked me that, why have you got up, I will tell you, because we have to fast, there's already understood the New Year's Day, I'd ever say that I've got up too fast.

00:01:43--> 00:02:29

The New Year's Day, so near as importantly as in the heart, you don't have to say it with your bang. That's what most of the people think. And I don't know of any Hadith, which says that the prophet or the Sahaba never said loudly that I intend to fast intention is in the heart. And one imitation is sufficient for the form of Ramadan unless as I said, it's broken. But this is only for the for the fast for a warranty Fast. Fast is not a fad, fast intention is not a fad, because again, mentioned in the say in the book of fasting, how did number 23231 is the Prophet he does his wife that I want food to eat. And then I said that the no food to eat. They said okay, I'm fasting. That means his

00:02:29--> 00:02:41

intention was not there before in the previous night. He made it on the spot he abstained from before dawn, but his intention was afterwards in the morning.

00:02:42--> 00:03:23

So for the voluntary past, it's not compulsory to be made early the previous and except if it is a very important one deposit Ashura, the 10th of Muharram Ashura or it can be the day of arafat, it's preferable to make intention before that's very important first, for all the other voluntary fast, it's not compulsory we made before previous night for the nia. There are other three things which are very important. One thing, if it's by posts, and if something is broken, then it can be forgiven, or by error or by forgetfulness, as Allah says in the Quran, in chapter number 16, was 106. That after a person has believed,

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

then, if he does something of unbelief, do something

00:03:31--> 00:04:08

except by force, and when he does by force, he will have a shake, I'll forgive. So if someone forces a person to break the past, his Nia was in there, he can be forgiven. And Allah says in Surah Baqarah, chapter number two was number 26, that all Lord, please do not catch us. Please, do not hold her responsible, when we are when we make a mistake or when we forget. So if a person in his forgetfulness, breaks is fast, like has water line forgiven, or, if, because of a mistake, I'll forgive which you shall deal later in channel
