The topic of today's short talk in the CBO from non doctors I care if Ramadan during lockdown
What are the meanings of these words? Ramadan, is derived from the Arabic word Ramadan, Ramadan, which means intense.
and dryness. It's also derived from the Arabic word
from the which means sun, big sand. In Islamic terminology, Ramadan means the intense scorching heat in the stomach due to thirst. It also indicates
the good deeds of a Muslim with scotches away the evil deeds.
This was the definition of the word done. Let us understand what is the meaning of the word lockdown.
lockdown means a situation where people are not allowed to leave or enter a particular building or a promise or a complex or a city or an area
due to an emergency. The emergency can be if they're the bomb scare in a school zone or allowed to leave or enter the school. They can be right they can be bored. But today, majority of the world more than 50% of the countries in the world they are under lockdown. And the reason is because of covid 19
coronavirus disease 19 or Coronavirus, disease 2019
and I have received hundreds and 1000s of questions on the social media especially on the Facebook. That why is Dr. Zakir Naik silent as far as the issue of Coronavirus is concerned it's more than few months. It's more than three months since the issue there and today we see every Tom Dick and Harry every second person is talking about Coronavirus. So why is Dr. Zakir Naik silent?
And I have two reasons why a silent and I'll be breaking the silence today. Number one today the world has become a global village
and especially because of the social media. You have a lot of information
and a large portion of it which is either fake or is it false news and we find today every second person whether Muslim or non Muslim is coming to Coronavirus and because of the fake news on the social media about Coronavirus about COVID-19 and about the fake news that has been made by different people. It's causing more harm than good. So I didn't want to add to it.
I will give you a few examples
in the month of January 2020 the video clips by made by some people showing the Chinese being affected by the COVID-19 and their boss
like dogs, they behave like animals. I be a doctor. I know that this is not true. Because the COVID-19 does not affect the brain, it affects the respiratory system. So these were fake videos of videos recorded during other times and attributing it to Coronavirus or COVID-19.
There is one person who is giving the treatment for Coronavirus saying you have onion and it gives the basic description in detail how should the onion be cut how you should eat it and he said within 20 minutes The Coronavirus will be killed in your complete body and you will have negative testing all these are nonsense and causing more damage than good to humanity. I've given two examples.
There's a person who's trying to be very logical and he shows on the video on the metal bottle it's mentioned that this that all it kills Coronavirus, anything fee. The manufacturing date is 2019 that means that all which was made in UK they knew in advance that Coronavirus will go into sprint 2020 they made this that all before that to kill. That means everything is planted. This is nonsense. The person is a fool. He doesn't know the basics of Coronavirus. Because Coronavirus was discovered in 1930s.
What we have today is COVID-19. It's one species of Coronavirus. So that's the reason we have to be careful. We don't have to unnecessarily pick up news from the media from the social media from the news and repeated without verifying it. And I'm shocked
I'm shocked that even many days many who are popular. Some of them have been many students that are talking about the treatment of trauma of Coronavirus number one when they say Coronavirus it is not the same as COVID-19
COVID-19 is one type of Coronavirus which I speak later on inshallah and be the solution even though I'm shocked even solution about Coronavirus how to treat COVID-19 which is not the speciality
and he will speaking about Islamic aspects which is not the field. Most of us that is we are not focus. We are not wish to hit and they're giving instructions or not to do something which is further let the forecast do that. Let them wish they do that or they cannot and imagine if you're wrong what will happen because our beloved portion of celestron said that while giving fatwa if you're qualified, if you give a right for you get double Sava if we give the wrong opinion, wrong fourth way to get a single server. But if we're talking about medical aspect, which is not your field, whether right or wrong, you are responsible for the damage caused. It is wrong because today,
very few people in the world know about the details of COVID-19. Even as a medical doctor, I'm not qualified to speak on COVID-19 there are a few people like virologist like immunologist, those who are specialized in epidemics are specialized on virus, a small section of the medical field they are qualified. So how can a digest read a newspaper and repeated without verifying even if it turns out to be right later on you'll be responsible. Similarly giving fatwa is not our scope. Let us do that. That was one of the reason that I did not
about COVID-19 but since the people requested me 1000s of them and all the requests are talking about Coronavirus. I will speak a couple of minutes on Coronavirus to show you the difference to give information Coronavirus. People know about Coronavirus virus since decades. Let me tell you that the coronovirus has got very species. There are
about 20 species of Coronavirus and most of the species of Coronavirus. They do not affect the human beings. So, when they say Coronavirus does this damage actually, they give misinformation. Most of the Coronavirus doesn't cause damage to the human beings. There are five species that are each species which caused the problem. Five of the species cause a very minimal problem to the human beings.
There are three species which really are detrimental and cause great damage to the human beings. If you read the Coronavirus, was first discovered in animals in 1930s.
It was first discovered in chickens, which caused a respiratory
tract infection in the chickens later on in 1940s. It was found in mouse and in human beings. The first time it was found was in a
In 60s that was called human Coronavirus.
And the first time the word human Coronavirus came in the print media was in 1968.
As I mentioned out of the 20 species out of the 20 species available of Coronavirus, only eight effective human beings five
are very mild and doesn't cause a major problem with human beings. The three are detrimental. Number one is the SARS coronavirus SARS
is severe acute Respiratory Syndrome FA rs Coronavirus c ob
this mainly sped in the world and predicted a pandemic in 2003. It started in 2002. In China, it mainly spent 2003 and 2005 was a 2014 was the life last that
last that it was
seen. So SAS Coronavirus mainly spring 2003. It started in 2002 and 2004. After that it wasn't seen. It was mainly a respiratory taxi symptoms assume it was declared as a pandemic by the who.
And the second one
is mirth Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus.
This Middle East Respiratory
Syndrome, it spread in 2012.
And it affected about 2494 people in the world. And about 850 people died because of MERS it spread in about 24 countries and yet they're keeping a track as late as the end of 2019. The report said there were 2484 cases in the full world over all these about 10 years and it killed 858 human beings that means a mortality at that rate of 34.4% very fast
Coronavirus it that infected 8098 people in the world and killed 774 people less than 10% death rate that is 9.55% death rate.
Recently, a few months ago came the third Coronavirus species which was very deadly for the human beings and that was COVID-19
Corona virus disease 2019 also called as SAS code two that is severe acute
Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus to
this was first
came into existence and notified to the who was in the end of December 2019 and the infection started a couple of months Some say November some sector but some say
earlier in 2019
what I gave information is the word Coronavirus which is there and you can it is already established information. You can go to any medical journal any medical site and information are somewhat similar COVID-19 Coronavirus, 2019 disease, it is new. We aren't aware of the details there is no established treatment for it yet. There are research is being done. So if the medical fraternity who has specialized in the field if they give the comments it is okay. But every Tom Dick and Harry talking about the treatment talking about how to take care about it and the dice doing it is not our field
even if it turned out to be right tomorrow out of flow. That doesn't mean what we'll do that because Quran clearly mentioned in Surah hoogenraad chapter 49 was number six. When you get information to check it up, check it rabidity. So if the medical experts themselves don't know the authenticity, how can we talk about it? That was the reason I kept silent on this issue. And now what has spoken is on Coronavirus which is not COVID-19 it is in the family the Coronavirus What I can tell you about COVID-19 that as of today
if you read the who it gives the case one year,
one day before appointed who report which I read a few hours before as of yesterday 24th of April to see St. 2am CST timezone there were 2.6 3 million people infected all over the world.
Of which 182,100 died.
But when I refer to the world ohmmeter, which gives update every minute,
as of today, that one day later than the 30, they quoted of who, as of today, the 24th of April 2021 58 GMT 158 M or 10158 hours, GMT 2.8 3 million people all over the world were infected in more than approximately 20 different countries
and 197,245 people died.
And if you calculate the percentage, it comes to 6.97% death rate.
I don't say this is accurate one because you know, there are
10s of 1000s hundreds of 1000s maybe millions of them yet infected by the COVID-19. And because they have not been tested, and most of them are asymptomatic, if you come to know the actual number of people infected would be much higher, so they'd also but naturally come low. So this will brief information about the COVID-19 and for the people who take care we're talking about Coronavirus, about COVID-19.
Let us understand and try and find out what is mentioned in the feed of the Prophet and the sabas.
About the epidemic diseases
our beloved Prophet Musa masala
it's mentioned in say Buhari
why number seven, Hadith number 5708. Our Prophet masala Salim said that when you hear news of the break of a plague in a land, do not enter that land.
And if in the place where you're staying, a plague breaks out, do not leave that place.
The same method is depicted in say Buhari one number seven. Number 5729.
Messenger peace be upon him said
that when you hear
about a break of the plague in the land, not enter the land. And if in the country, you're staying a plague breaks out,
go out of the country.
Not exit the country. A similar method also repeated use a Buhari point number 700. Number 5730.
musallam said that when you hear awful news of a break of a plague in a place, not enter the place and where you stay. If a plague breaks out, do not run away from that place. And they're very effective in giving us a little bit of similar to what we have in the lockdown
that do not infect others by going out of place and do not get infected by entering a place in which the epidemic is there.
It's also mentioned cibo Hari in one number seven, number 5707 that our beloved Prophet Musa Lawson said that run away from a leper, like you run away from a lion.
You know, because leprosy is contagious. So you don't have to come close to it. You have to stay very far from it. Giving a watch today the medical fraternity tells us already advice taught by a prophet 14 years ago. It's also mentioned in certain
Nehemiah volume number four, how did number 3544 that when a group of people came to take by
him to give allegiance to the Prophet, one of them were the leper. One of them was a leper. So the Prophet send a message to the man that go back and your buyer has been accepted your allegiance has been accepted.
And the one who had it
one number 700 number 5730. For the holiday Shambhala visitor number for the Prophet, she said that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon said
the plague was sent as a punishment May Allah subhana wa Taala on the people who wanted to send but for the believers, it is a blessing. And they for believers, stays in the land which is infected by play, having faith in Allah and believing that nothing will befall him except what Allah has ordained. And Allah says that such people who die
they will be given the status of a martyr.
That mean forget if a person dies a Muslim believing in Allah subhanaw taala having faith that what Allah does is correct ordained for him and not fearing anything else. If he died he'll be called as a martyr and regret the Sahaba matter.
This is the guidance that we get from the Hadeeth so Today the topic is around than during lockdown.
What we have to do is make the best of the plan. So we get closer to Allah subhanaw taala maybe from Dan be better than the earlier I'm done.
in the Quran surah chapter number two was number 23.
Yeah, you will live in Armando quotevalet como Sam.
Come up with the la colina
La La Quinta Cologne, Nala from Tata Tata hoon. That, that fasting has been prescribed to you, as it was prescribed to people who came before you, so that you may learn self restraint. You may learn tequila, you may learn Milan righteousness, you may learn piety. So fasting is mainly prescribed to the human beings so that we come closer to Allah subhanaw taala we get more God conscious. We have more taqwa.
It's mentioned save Buhari, more number three. Number 1901. That the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said that anyone who fasts, the treatment of Ramadan, having faith
and asking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala then all your sins, all your past sins will be forgiven. So Ramadan is such a good opportunity for all of us Muslims to fast and to prepare last minute Allah and ask for forgiveness and inshallah Allah will forgive all your past sins.
There is a need,
which always disturbed me for many years when I started my dharma.
And it is mentioned
infinite Nephi one number three, or did number 2106
that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said
when a man starts
the gates of heaven open the gates of Jen now open.
The gates of hell are closed.
And the devils are chained
and that Verizon, remarkable opportunity for us to stay away from the sins and to grow that Allah subhanaw taala.
The question that came to my mind very often, and even today people ask that if the day if all the devils all the shatin all the settings that change in romblon then why do we yet have people committing sins and acts which are haram? People yet drink? People yet gamble, though the rate of crime does decrease. And there's a survey that says that all over the world. in Ramadan, the rate of crime does decrease but yet there are people doing major sins or drinking alcohol even fight to say among Muslims gambling, so how Clubman all the devils are chained yet some people commit sin and there are many for serines and tougher seas and various scholars have given various reasons for
them, some are less logical, some are not logical at all. Some have said that the the bigger shaitan have been imprisoned and chained the smaller one and yet let loose. Some say though the shaitana changed the effects of shape and then they add various and I personally give an analogy for a better understanding.
I reply to this hadith that why do yet cinch take place when all the shaytans all the shatin all the devils all this in the chain I give energy for a better understanding that if you go to a zoo and if there is a lion or a tiger, which is chained to a pole.
So because the tiger is chained even though it's not in a cage, you feel safe because the tiger is chained.
But yet, you're careful. You don't go too close to the tiger or the lion
Because if you know that the chain is about 10 feet long, you will see to it that you will stay much more than 10 feet away from the lion or the tiger, otherwise the tiger cannot kill you. So, what do you do you stay away from the lion or the tiger and then you feel secured. Similarly, in this Hadith, in Allah smart Allah says that the phippen are chained, it doesn't say that things have been killed. So when they are chained and if someone goes very close to it
closer than the length of the chain, then there are high chances are that the state will will get effective it may get them to you it will get
forced you to do things which are Haram. So that is the reason in Ramadan, there are less chances that you will do sin, there are less chances to haram but if you go too close to it to the Satan, then there are high chances that yet you may do the Haram things. Let me give you an example. That today
we have Ramadan already came and even locked down.
And you know, when the highly favorable shaytan the Quran says in Surah NASS, Chapter 114. The last verse was the three that among them, there are Jin admin. So the two types of shayateen one which can be seen one which cannot be seen, the jinn that which cannot be seen, and the human needs oven which can be seen such to wonder that the human shaytan is roaming about
the majority of the world is in lockdown and even the human being then lockdown. So there is a double chaining, even of the human beings.
Let me give an example, that even though this is locked down, in the lockdown the essential food and essential items are permitted to be purchased, we can go to supermarket and purchase the grocery, the vegetable sugar rice, but secret doesn't come in essential requirements. So the secret is not allowed to be transported. So within a few days, the cigarette went out of stock. So now it's a good opportunity for those who are Chainsmokers that now there's a lockdown, you can't get cigarette. So there are high chances that you will stop smoking. This is the time that don't continue when the lockdown is removed. But you have some people that yet the cigarettes are sold illegally. In many
countries. There's only legally they bypass the legal channels, they don't pay tax and illegally they are being sold to the stolen supermarket or other places and people go out of the way to buy these illegal cigarettes. So, you had a good chance to get away from
act or addiction which is killing every year 6 million people, what do you do you go out of the way go to an illegal source and you buy the cigarette. So this is what I say that are coming close to the shutdown. If you can go to the shutdown, the shutdown will surely tempt you and there are high chances yet you will do the hairmax Therefore, my request is that this is the month of Ramadan. The gates of heaven open the gates of hell are closed the shaitana chain it is good opportunity for you to stay away from all the Haram actually do and do the acts which you have been doing earlier the fries and the Sunnah, keep on doing most of them
and we will discuss inshallah, tomorrow.
I'm sorry, in the next time when we have a live from the top that's on Tuesday. I'll be talking about lead isolation get you closer to Allah subhanaw taala and we'll discuss on how in the situation where there is a lockdown we can come close with our last month in detail. Today if I can think
major negative factors of this lockdown as far as Ramadan is concerned there are many factors but the four major I can think of
you know some affected some Asana Asana democrator
that as effected there are none because of lockdown is unfortunately most of the mosque in the world today. They are shut. They're not allowed for public and we can pray Our five times Salah
in these mosques as well as the Juma Salah. most parts of the world, most of the mosque are closed, according to me.
When I ask people that what is the major drawback of this of this lockdown? For some people, so major drawback the lockdown is the economic loss to the country. You know we cannot go to work we cannot earn a living and we cannot meet people and they give
According to me, the major loss of this lockdown is that the mosques have been closed for the public.
The major loss for a Muslim is that he cannot pray the five times compulsory Salah in the mosque, which is a further for Muslim.
This is the big loss, other losses compared to this loss is negligible and updated last minute Allah that made this lockdown be lifted as soon as possible, so that we can pray in the mosque in the five times Salah in Java, for in drum then you have to be more regular in the mosque. Unfortunately, during this Ramadan, we will not most of us almost all of us will not be able to go to the mosque to offer our five times complicity Salah the number one major negative factor of this rundown. Number two
that most of us were most of the most in the world are closed and shut down for the public. They will not be able to go to the mosque to pray taraweeh
number three, we cannot go to the mosque to attack us. And number 400 of the profit that if you do ombre and Ramadan, you get the suburb of Hajj I know that a very small percentage of the Muslim Ummah, a miniscule portion yet to the millions, compared to about 2 billion Muslims that are there in the world. They do go for Amara
and this unfortunately, will not
be able to be done this from them before the lockdown because about the main being shut for the general public. Because of this COVID-19
we should take care that we see should we substitute something equally, if not the same? As far as we cannot pray the five times compulsory Salah
in the mosque in Jamaat, what do we do? We pray at home and see to it that we make a jamaa at home.
Because our beloved partner solo Salim said
that even two people can make a jamaa and the praying Rama is 25 times 27 times most of our blessings as compared to praying individually.
What you should do, you can make a drama with the Father,
with your brother, with your son, with your mother, with your wife, with your sister with your daughter to a sufficient if there are more you can join but please pray Gemma, number two, those who regularly go to mosque and a particular they see to it that they reach the mosque before the comma and they on time. But now when we are praying at home, we feel relaxed, okay? No, we are making the Jamaat we are going to be the mom it won't be in the house. So most of them procrastinate and may pray half an hour late one hour late. Many times we may pray just before the start of the next Salah, which is a macro time a prophet said pray as early as possible except for the shala so my
request to all the brothers and sisters that don't know Do not delay the fight time Salah in Ramadan, pray at home the moment God as an as and cannot be heard. You have a watch everything is there on the mobile see to it that you pray as soon as possible when the time is up, pray in a jamaa
see to that you do all the other fries and the sooner which inshallah we'll discuss in detail in the next shot top of mind.
most of us cannot be thrown away in the most. So what do we do? Vp tarawih at home.
And when you play therapy at home, you have an option that because the way we are most of the people in the world, for convenience, they pray immediately after inshallah which is permitted, but the most of the time, the most appropriate in the best time is to pay a bamboo lead. That is the prayer at night or therapy towards the last one third of night. Now since you are in control, and you no longer go to the mosque for therapy, see to it that you preferably pray in the last one third of the night, which is the best time to sit down and say who asked for forgiveness. I'll forgive all your sin. So pray at the moment stop time. So do you have an advantage that due to lockdown we have a
chance of praying at the appropriate time. The therapy.
The third is a takeoff.
At takeoff. It's complicity it should be done in the most. So there's no way that you can read takeoff at home. But if you cannot do at the caf somewhat similar what I felician
You know, if you have 10 days, you can come closer to Allah subhanaw taala in isolation in the full 2930 days of Ramadan, and that we'll discuss in the next short talk on coming Tuesday, on the 28th of April, we'll discuss more in detail.
The fourth thing which we cannot do is obrah, we pray to Allah subhanaw taala that, if we cannot do it from then he gives us the opportunity next Ramadan, and later on much more, so that we get most of our
there are other things.
But the four of them, to me, are the most important things that we'll be using. And repeat Allah subhanaw taala let me get us closer to Allah subhanaw taala in different than,
though, my plan was that we speak for a short time I already spoke for
about more than 35 minutes are supposed to speak lesser. inshallah, in the next talks, we have eight remaining CDs, I speak for a shorter time so that we have more time for the question after session.
We'll be starting the album starting to reply to the question again, I repeat that those who would like to ask a question you can mention on the Facebook, in the messages in the Instagram, and the Twitter, on the YouTube, but because there are multiple coming and it's difficult to track down yet there are people tracking, and they'll be sending me on WhatsApp. But a better way is that you can WhatsApp my text message to the number plus six zero double 126953895. I repeat, text your questions mentioning your name and the city and country of residence as the text message to WhatsApp plus six zero, double 126953895. And we have someone who is monitoring these questions. And he sending it to
me on my WhatsApp. So the next
40 minutes that we have. We will be
I'll be answering the question on WhatsApp. You can keep on sending and I'm sure already hundreds of come and hundreds and 1000s of becoming more. We'll select what we can and if after the session lower there are some good questions that we could not apply. We'll try and answer them in the next series. Now we start dropping. We start with open question answer session.
Unnecessary Don't tell me please.
reading the questions.
The first question
I am an Indian Muslim. My name is Amina Islam. My question to you is that is there mentioned anywhere in the Hadith about Coronavirus and what should I do
for getting rid of it?
As far as the word Coronavirus or COVID-19 is concerned, it's nowhere mentioned in the Quran or the Hadith. But
there are many places that did talking about epidemic talking about plague topple you talking about leprosy, which epidemic as a contagious disease comes in the same group as Coronavirus, or the COVID-19. But specifically by name, it's not mentioned and I said in my talk, very sad it and say Buhari why number seven are the number 5728 5729 5330. The Prophet said that if you hear of news of the break of a plague in the land, do not enter that land. Or if you're staying in a place
the plague breaks out. Do not leave that place 700 I'm talking about which I mentioned in my talk.
So there is mention of epidemic disease somewhat similar to the Coronavirus of COVID-19. As far as how you do take precaution, as I mentioned, it's somewhat similar to the lockdown somewhat similar to confinement or quarantine, these are words which are familiar that if you are there in a place where plague is broken out do not leave that place, not infect others. If you are not in a place which has played but other players have got played do not go to that place a plague or Coronavirus in their pocket.
19 these are guidelines given to us. But and there are various to us that are they which we read the skirt that we did in the morning then the evening that talks about keeping good health. There's a particular one in I mentioned in
the Dow volume number two, that you pray to Allah subhanaw taala that me he cured us and save us from the vitiligo. curas antiva from the leprosy from Luca dama. And from infectious disease numerious do others forgive, but basically, you have to have faith in Allah. And as mentioned in say Buhari, while number seven, added number 5734. That if a Muslim
is in a land where there is plague, or contagious disease, or COVID-19, and if we have faith in Allah subhanaw taala. And if he believes that nothing will happen to him, unless what Allah has ordained from and even if he dies, he will be getting the job of a martyr. And
we do pray many times when even I pray,
most of the time, that you know, May Allah forgive all our sins and riddles in the company of vamos a la Salam and the MBR and the Shahada, etc. But he also and also pray that give me the opportunity to be a Shaheed when we talk about a Shaheed normally in our mind is you know that when we will fall in the way of Allah subhanaw taala bearing witness, we give up our life, second category can be that being a die, that because we're spreading the message of Allah subhanaw taala we have a large number of following we even have a small percentage of that large number of enemies. If we have 100 million followers, so surely you will have 10s of 1000s of enemies in the world.
And there are chances that this enemy may kill you. And if you die, bearing witness to lasma die even then you die. And even if you die in a play, believing what ordained for you, Bella Stein, and if you die, then a beloved Prophet said you get the job of a martyr and the Pedro last manner that he did all of all the viewers in general, in general, the fellows and me He gave us company with the motto of
the second question.
I am Muhammad weidu sama, and I'm from Tata Bangladesh. My question is, there is no contagious disease in Islam. Is it true?
No, it's not true. To say there is no contagious disease in Islam is not true at all. And I quote it several 100 giving us what precautions you should take when they're the plague and plague is a contagious disease. The Prophet spoke about leprosy. The first contagious disease that I can think of in the history of Islam, as mentioned the Quran in surah baqarah chapter two, verse 59, talking about the bunnies, right, that's the time of Musa alayhis salam, the bunnies, right, they were transgressing, they are not following that among Allah. So Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 59. That these transgressors the bunny trail, Allah will send a plague on
So the first mentioned in Islamic texts, the earlier that I know of any plague mentioned that I can think of is at the time of any threat at the time of Musa al Salaam. When they were transgressing, not following a last minute Allah said the plague on them as a punishment. If you read historical record by somebody,
somebody says that in 18
hijiri it in Ah, after entry in Palestine, in a placement and um, was a play clip, and 25,000 people died because of the plague. And from the people who died, there were many sahabas Some were formed a shadow machine, for example,
Abu Zubaydah, manabu Jarrah, the Saba mela BP with him.
He was one of the 10 people who have promised paradise and he was amongst one of the people who died in the plane, and 25,000 people died. Imagine at that time in the population was small. If you read the historical records of him a tequila birdie, he writes that up 200 131 Hijri. Ah 15 plagues came and he quoted the time and so play is there since ages and centuries, even an Islamic is there. So it's wrong to say that there is no contagious disease in Islam.
There are many questions that are coming I will question that alive. I'm just
Trying to see that if I can.
The question that how can we again, start peach TV Bangla in Bangladesh.
I'm aware that because of the allegation laid by the Indian government, more than three years back in 2016,
Bangladesh was forced to ban pitch TV, it ban in the few countries,
including Bangladesh. But what we did last year, a year back, we launch the pitch TV mobile app, you can go
to the App Store, if you have an iPhone, or iOS. If you have an Android, you can go to the Google and download pitch TV network app free. And I mean now
insha Allah 1000s of people are watching this program on the pitch TV app on the mobile. You can see on the pitch TV on the PC mobile app.
It's all the four channels available, which TV English TV will do pitch TV, Batman PC, which is also second, just yesterday,
the first offer man, we launched our new website, www dot Zarkon nike.com. And on the website, if you go, there is a life pitch TV. I can if you click on that, it will open up into four channels, pitch TV, English pitch TV, bangla pitch TV, or do NPC TV Chinese. And you click on the right in whichever
language you want to listen, you can listen one advantage that is there in this mobile app, and on the pitch TV. That is that your website, you can even go to pitch tv.tv when they're in seat life, that one danger is that you have got one week of programming kept today that if you miss any program the last one week, you can even see it you can catch up with it which is not available on the life pitch TV. So that's an advantage. So surely you can get take advantage of pitch TV or you can have a private dish. If you have private dish which hardly cost about 7000 and maybe 10,000 Taka it's a one time investment. It's free to air you put it and you can get pstv English, Urdu, bangla Chinese on
that piece TV dish, and you can watch it directly on your television. Hope that answers your question.
Another question where a brother called at naseeruddin that why have you? Why are you absconding in Malaysia?
I'm not absconding in Malaysia, people know that I'm staying in Malaysia, in Putrajaya. What do you mean we meaning that why did I go? Why do you run away to Malaysia? Or why did why did I come to Malaysia? And you know that there was an allegation by the Indian government because of the popularity and many people were accepting Islam and the new government, the BJP government against the Muslim and they had a lot of agenda. So delayed allegations against me first on terrorism, they could not prove it. Then they said HPD could not prove it, then the money laundering that was they cannot prove it. Then they tried to give me a bait and try to convince me to come back at a
compromise which I didn't agree. Basically I did hegira
and hegira for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala I being a DI M and I felt that my life was in danger, etc. And this is the Sunnah of the prophets and the son of whom Salah Salam. And I was happy that Allah made it possible for me to follow one of the Sooners of the Prophet which very few people can do.
And I chose Malaysia within it because I feel Malaysia is one of the best available Muslim countries in the world. Most of the Muslim countries in the world today have got problems, the best available amongst the Muslim countries, more than 50 things that are there. I felt Malaysia was the best that the reason I came here. The reason I felt Malaysia was the best number one that Malaysia away from the war zone, you know, many Muslim countries in the war zone, especially in the Gulf region, you have one in German war in Syria. So this Malaysia is away from the water. So number one, number two, it's away from the wrong influence of the Western countries, you know, people the the Gulf countries
and Muslim countries close, which are in Europe and otherwise, they're under the influence the bad influence of the Western countries, which Malaysia away into very little influence of America and the western country number two.
Number three, Malaysia is the country which has the strongest passport among the Muslim country.
can travel 285 countries without any visa? This was I checked up last couple of months back, USA, maybe additional two countries, the highest is Japan 190 countries, then the Singapore one engine and countries then maybe you get us mid 76. Malaysia has been 85 countries
the strongest passport amongst all the Muslim countries. That is point number three, point number four amongst the non Arab Muslim countries. I'm not talking about the Arab Muslim countries, the non Arab Muslim countries on average, a Malaysian according to me, is a more practicing Muslim than the average Indian or average Pakistani or not mean bad for the Indian or the Pakistani when I'm an Indian, Indian Muslim, an average Indian Muslim or average Pakistani Muslim or a Bangladeshi Muslim, any non Arab
Muslim, Malaysia is, on average, a Malaysian Muslim is more practicing. You have the percentage wise. If we see a survey that says that in India, the Muslim coming to the fight times campuses and mosque is just a minute percentage in Malaysia. It's a high percentage. The people firstly the higher percentage that Verizon as compared to the other non Arab Muslim countries, the practice of Islam is stronger. that's point number four. Point number five that in Malaysia, the Federal religion is Islam.
So don't have to feel shy to colorism since there are many Muslim countries where you feel shy to call yourself a Muslim. The majority of Muslims more than 90% are Muslim, but because of that was because of the so called secular government calling themselves Muslims. So these were the reasons that I chose Malaysia over other countries AD AD got requests from more than 12 1314 countries to come and stay there and I chose Malaysia as the best amongst
the next question.
I am maajid. From Pondicherry, India. My question is, is it compulsory to do tarawih 20 rata? If not, why do they invest?
As far as tarawih is concerned?
the right word is scramble as the name of the Prophet and the Savas node use the word tarawih and I'll tell you about it.
The word use scramble led families to stand level is night to stand up at night It means standing in prayer at night. So the right word scramble lay when it is prayed in Ramadan because is it it is a habit that in Ramadan after every four hours after every tour, we stop and do raha we give rest. So the word was coined as Pahlavi not at the time of the Prophet, not at the time of Sabbath much later on. So tarawih the word later on coined because we rushed in between the Salah that's the reason how the word that I've used. But why do they pray 20
a prophet peace be upon him said that as far as Campbell is concerned, pray to rocket to record as much as you can, in five years of to record the profits that you pray. That means there's no restriction on the number. It should be in cycles of Torah, the prophet himself, he always paid a token
and the full life that this is that we have somebody he prayed it and then add with the three rock avatar, it becomes seven, but the pit three record Campbell and during Ramadan, if you want to call it, Ravi prayed it, but there is no restriction. He clearly mentioned you can pray as much as you want. We have records that are that have been visited people paid the 29 uS sabas who paid 36 even that even at the time of the profit, so there's no restriction now. So the upsell is that you pay a surcharge. But there is no hampering printing because the more observed is that the longer you pay the better. If you pay 20 records at the speed of a bullet train,
better pay a ticket at a slower pace, it will get the most out of the time and the duration is more important. You can pay in multiples of two.
Why do they pay 20 record because, you know the majority of the Muslims in the world, the Hanafi about 50% and their school of thought which is valid that they pay 25 so maybe the authorities of the Haram didn't want to displease and since it is possible not to cause the displeasure among Muslim Ummah most of the mosque in Saudi Arabia for eight o'clock but the boat the Harmon the 20 Raka it is valid. It is permissible
The good thing about the 20 record in the Harmon is it is wrong. It is in a proper speed not at a frontier meal, not at the bullet train speed, like many of the most you have in other countries. It's good. You have the spoon, you have the Sakina you have the horseshoe. That's important. Hope that answers the question.
I'm a big fan of you. My name is shad. I'm a big fan of you from New Delhi.
Due to lockdown, we cannot go to the Masai we don't have any habit to lead the therapy. Can I lead therapy by holding a tablet or a booster to recite the Quran? a similar question is also asked by Bilawal Bhutto from Karachi
And the question is that
my question is that can I afford tarawih withholding Quran most of in my hand for reading reciting Quran if I don't remember the Quran, as far as the opinion or the verdict on 10 a person hold the Quran or muscle for a tablet or a mobile while reading Torah we can read from it. Majority of the scholars they say yes you can. And
mean what to do in any number 145
the Alabama live with her Allah be pleased with her. She had a slave man who used to lead be the Imam in Dharavi and he used to hold the massage and read from it during taraweeh because he was not having
a final opinion of Mr. Malik demand humble Mr. Man no we all have them say that you can enter Avi hold the most off and today you can even hold a mobile phone or a tablet it is totally permitted. It is allowed though some people say I know that when you hold a tablet you cannot keep your hand on the on the chest and you cannot and when you turn the pages of the of the Quran then your concentration goes down but most of the class A is permitted. Some have said that in the first cell I should not do because Dharavi The sooner it is permitted. So you can go ahead inshallah, if you can get more tissue if you can recite better if you're not a Hafiz, you hold the Quran, it's
permitted and the more you read, it is better you're getting to some of the therapy also as well as reading the Quran. inshallah.
The next question
is Hamza Shakeel.
Professional businessman from Pakistan. Question if a person bleeds unintentionally, from the body, for example, in the washroom does that invalidate the first? Since I'm glad as this question that if a person bleeds may have a wound, go to the washroom and bleeds, maybe because of piles or any other reason? Does it break the fast No. Normal bleeding does not break the fast in case of woman. If it's blood due to menstruation, then the fastest broken she should not keep she should keep the fast later on. But normally general bleeding, whether it be of injury, maybe it'd be a boil, maybe because of piles for the reasons a phenomenal blood comes out in small quantity or little bit more
quantity. If it's not late with the with menstruation, it does not break the fast and you continue fasting.
The next question is, why did Allah create human beings? When he was knowing that on the Day of Judgment, a large number of people will go to hell channel does it not raise the question on the mercy of Allah?
Allah john bucur large number of people call Jana Madonna chata does Allah purposely want to keep wants to put a large number of people in hell?
The question is that why did Allah create the human being and he knew that on the Day of Judgment, a large number will go to hell. The human being is a unique and one of the best creation of Allah subhanaw taala unlike the other creations, all the other creation they submit the will to Allah subhanaw taala debase, why not 100% whether it be the trees, whether it be the stars, whether it be the sun, whether it be the animals, whether it be the birds, all of them are Muslim, they submit the will of Allah. Allah created two creations the jinn and the men, the jinn and the human being and the human being is a
supey declaration that they have free will of their own.
They can either obey Allah or they can disobey Allah. Now after free will is given, if a person obeyed the commandment of Allah subhanaw taala obey then follows the Quran and the Hadith, he is far superior than a person who has no free will, and you obey the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. So, a human being who has a choice of his own, has a free will to obey or disobey Allah subhanaw taala. And then, if
he follows the commands, he is higher even than the angels, would the angels have no free will to disobey Allah subhanaw taala. So, he has created a new creation.
And when something you want something which is excelling, or have a higher quality, the chance of success rate is less. For example, if you appear for an examination of 10 standard, you find that most most of them pass when you go to bachelor's degree, yet much most of them passed, but lesser as compared to 10 standard. If you appear for an MBBS degree, the percentage of passing the exam is so the people passing the bachelors in arts or in science, if you go for MD or dm, that the doctorate of medicine, again, the percent of people who Chan who pass is less than the person of people who fail, because it's a very difficult examination. So you're also this is a test that we are
undergoing. And Allah subhanaw taala view the free will. It is not Allah who's purposely putting them in janome is giving them the option. In fact, Allah says merciful and he says that you ask for forgiveness, I'll forgive you. And another one of the ones that you asked for forgiveness, Allah will forgive you.
If you do anything major sin, any Let it be hoping the senate it could be as big as a mountain. If you ask for forgiveness and if you repent, inshallah, Allah will forgive you, but we human beings, we are ungrateful to Allah subhanaw taala. Do a mistake, we asked for forgiveness, Allah forgives us then we go back to the sin. So this is the test we undergoing, as Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Imran Chapter number three
was number 85, that kulu knifes in Zakat remote, every soul shall have a taste of death
and only those who are successful. Well, to achieve the objectives of the life is those who entertain now, this life is nothing but mere play and amusement. Unless it is suitable chapter number 16 was number two.
I love the collected data. It does allow us created that and life to test which or feel good in deeds. So this life is a test for the hereafter. Allah Most Merciful. He's very kind. We are a unique creation one of the best creation of last minute Allah we are undergoing a test. Imagine if an examination in a medical examination, a person writes the wrong answer. You can expect the teacher to say oh, I'm merciful, I will pass you. If the teacher passes the people in the medical examination what will they do when they pass instead of treating the patient they will start killing them. So you have to follow the rule even though merciful. You have to
see what the result of the test data and based on that test. If you pass you go to Jenna, if you fail, you go to Jana.
Hope that answers the question.
We have another 15 minutes where we can inshallah continue and we'll take as many questions as we can. I'll try my level best to keep it short, but I want to give a
The next question is I'm a sister
My name is Romania from Dhaka, Bangladesh Why do women need to cover up their fasting or makeup for the first thing which is obligatory after I'm done while they do not need to pray their missed prayers during menstrual process? If they need to keep the obligatory missed fast thing before the next term than can they no longer fast afterward like covering up after two to three years missed fast. So basic question is that when
when they miss the Salah during menstruation, they don't have to catch up or do not have to compensate do not have to pray for the Salah they have missed but if they miss
the fast during a man which is the fun fast, they have to make up for it. The reason is that there's a difference between Salah as one of the pillars of Islam.
As compared to fasting, Salah is a pillar of Islam that every LDL Muslim, he has to pray Salah, and if he's a man, irrespective of the sick or healthy, he should pray Salah if he can't go to the mosque, and if you think you should pray at home, if you cannot stand and pray should lie down and pray, if we cannot lie down and prepare to sit and breathe, there's no excuse for the woman, if they're having menstrual cycle, then they excused. And if, if the postnatal then they may, they may have to miss but this Salah with the Miss don't have to compensate by the reason is that Salah is an act, it's a forest, which is done five times a day, if you miss it for any reason. And if you're
told to fast later on, suppose seven days you miss it, then if you have too fast, if you have to sorry, pray again, it would be double what you're praying every day five times besides the sunlight etc. And again, you pray additional
as compared let me give an example. That if you are hungry, and maybe you could not eat for seven days.
That doesn't mean that once you start getting food you start eating double every day.
To compensate. If you make a little bit more, that's it. That doesn't mean you eat, keep on eating double. Instead of three meals a day, you have six meals a day, for the next seven days.
So this because it's an everyday you have to do it. So during normal days, it will be an additional double burden. So it's
a last minute Allah has given concession. So it leniency to the woman that Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven them. And so you did not pray and you did not compensate later on. In comparison
to fasting. Fasting as I say somewhat like overhauling of human body. Like you know, when you have a machine or maybe a car. Federal machine require over oiling once in six months, sometimes once a year. Similarly, when you have a car, so these machine if you allow me to call a human being a machine, the human being is the most complicated machine on the face of the earth. No Do you think it requires oiling or servicing so this from Dan in the servicing
of the human body once a year for one month.
Now imagine suppose you're doing servicing of a car,
once a year or once in six months. And if you forget, and you deliver one month you cannot forget now I've now added not service are supposed to service every January. next January came and I forgot well wait for next January. No, the moment you have a chance to service it, you do it. If you couldn't do in January do it in February. If you can't do in February do it in in March, the earlier the better. Similarly, because you could not fast while you are menstruating. The earliest the moment that menstruation is over, you start fasting you continue fasting, if it is not man you continue once Ramadan is over, you compensate for the fast you missed, so that your overhauling of
the body, the servicing of the bodies is completed the benefits that you get from the first thing is completed the medical benefits which we can discuss in detail later on the various spiritual benefits, which is only once in a year, once a month. So to do not to miss for the lady not to miss all these benefits, whether it be medical benefits, potential benefits, the blessings and the forgiveness that Allah gives. It is required that you compensate for the fast but I firmly before the coming of next term that the earlier the better, would enjoy while if not enjoy while the next month, but preferably before next from that. But for any reason if you are sick for a very long
And if you could not compensate or make up for the first year of missed one in the full year, you can surely make it up the next year but don't delay it faster, the better. And that's the reason fasting is has to be compensated in which the seller does not have to be compensated.
The question posed by Abu Nazir can if a person is COVID-19 positive, then really fast the sermon that's a question relevant to the topic and to Ramadan during lockdown.
First let you let me explain to you that if a person is positive COVID-19 suffering from COVID-19 most of the people suffering from COVID-19 asymptomatic
or the symptoms come a bit late.
Most of the people, they are mild, they may have a mild cough, they may have a dry cough, they may have a fever. So, if they are affected and they have mild system symptoms and they can keep the fast they should keep the fast.
But if the fever is too much and they cannot feed the hand they cannot keep the fast, if they feel they are feeling nauseated or they cannot, it is perfectly alright because the Quran clearly mentions in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 185 187, that if you are traveling or if you are sick, then you need not fast we can commence with later on. But if they asymptomatic, they're feeling fine. And and if the COVID-19 positive, if they fast, it is better if they can, or if they have got severe symptoms where they are going to pneumonia, or maybe they are into admitted. Or if you're on ventilator or that will drive you of course, if you cannot take it, please don't keep it.
Quran gives you permission if you're sick. It includes the sickness of COVID-19 you can always compensate later on when Allah gives you health. But if you are fine, and if you want to continue on too fast, you can keep it like the Prophet said that a traveler need not fast but if he can fast,
wants to fast he can fire while traveling. If he doesn't want to fast and compensate later on option is it. So same way with COVID-19 positive. If the symptoms are less, and you can fast, it's preferably fast. If you can't, then you can compensate later on.
Can we use sanitizers? This is a question from Maha Boone.
How will other data Manila dish can we use sanitizers in this in this crisis, which are made up of 63%? Alcohol?
I'm aware that most of the sanitizers contain alcohol, they're very few which which don't have alcohol. Can you use it?
and alcohol, as Quran says in Surah, Maya chapter five, verse number 90, that you cannot consume alcohol. It's a sentence and we agree with it. But this is usually for medical purposes, most of the places.
Most of the places when Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah, chapter two verse number 191 73. Jeremiah chapter five was number three, in sorry, Anam, chapter six was 145 and nl chapter 60 was 115. That if you do it out of compulsion, Allah is a monarchy. That means if you're doing it for medical purpose, now when we are using a hand sanitizer to kill the germs, it for medical purpose, and we know that if it contains alcohol, the chance of it dying is very fast, it is perfectly permitted. If you have a hand hand sanitizer, which doesn't contain alcohol, if it if it is effective, use it. If not, because you're not drinking alcohol, it means you're killing germs using
the alcohol to kill germs on your hands on your body. Like when taking when attacking injection, the doctor puts spirit on your skin to kill the germs or why disorder was there. So similarly, if you use this, it is perfectly fine. But see to it that you don't eat immediately after that. But better than that, if you're going to eat your food, you can very well wash your hand with the hand wash. And today many of the hand wash the antibacterial, they even killed the viruses and it says keep it on hand for 10 seconds 15 seconds there divided by the who is that keep it for 20 seconds by the time you start washing
and then you complete and before you start washing your
your hand in the water, it 20 seconds from the time you poured the liquid soap to the time you wash your hand. It is 22nd so it's perfectly fine. But be careful that when you're eating, you wash your hands so
we have few more minutes less and inshallah we'll take maybe one or two more questions. The next question, my name is Samia from bogura Bangladesh.
My question is it permissible to perform travi and tahajjud both in London
as I mentioned earlier, the more appropriate word is scramble al Qaeda means to stand lead means night cam will lead me standing in Salah at night. So anytime you pray Salah, after the Isha Salah up to before for your Salah. That's called a scramble.
If it spread during Ramadan because people stop and pray the word used was taraweeh. So taraweeh is one of the type of time we'll let
it enter the Arabic word use, meaning you sleep and you wake up to when you sleep and then you pray the cam will lead it is called a statue. So Tara is also Campbell l tahajjud. Oh, camel, can you play both?
Yes, you can pay both. You can play both together as one fella, or you can pay both separately. For example, in Ramadan, if, after your iftaar you do a budget, and after Isha will be bothered, and you sleep.
And you get up. And then you pray. You're not stopping. So when you get up
and you pray, it's because because they're stopping and praying. It's called Dharavi. So praying to anyone turabian
It can also be that you're going to the mosque, like what I normally do. I go to the mosque, and most of the mosque aphasia, they pray for me, I pray there. And I prefer going to a mosque, which does wonders.
A day, it's not complicity apropos and romance which completes the full Quran. And I also play my normal tangent. So normally in the whole of from Dan, I pray to Ravi. And in the last one third, again pray
all can relate to, because the Prophet did not district America for a pocket in the mosque. And then I paid pocket, even in the last one third. And even in the Harmon the last 10 days. Normally even in the harem, they have turabian they have they have to have immediately after the show. And
in the last one third night, before the time for fudger Salah a couple of hours before they produce another one. So they're pretty turabi separate that do separate, both accumulate, it is observed. It is preferable if you can pray both Alhamdulillah separately, you're praying after Isha, you're praying and the last one third, double as much as you pray it is better for you, especially in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, where you are seeking for health recover
the end of the question, and I think this would be the last question because we have only about two minutes left.
The question is Assalamualaikum Sir, my name is Nikita terima. I'm from mulgara. Bangladesh. My question is, recently I've watched your video about the rights of women in Islam. After seeing it. My mind is one step closer to Islam. How can I repent perfectly to Allah?
Hola como la Heron. The sister has asked a very good and a very important question that she has seen my videos including my talk on human Islam, and she realized that she was doing some mistakes or doing some things and now she wants to come closer to Islam closer to Allah subhanaw taala How can she repent? There are various criteria for repent. And the scholar says that if the four criteria are fulfilled, that inshallah Allah will accept your repentance, number one, that if you have done some Haram, agree that what you have done is haram. Number one, I agree it is haram. Number two, stop it immediately. Number three, do not do it again. Number four, if you can undo it, undo it all
the major sins you can't for example, and it's not afraid to you maybe a man is having alcohol and realize it's a major sin and he wants to stop it he wants to repent. So first he agrees that having alcohol is a sin. Number two, he stops having it. Number three, he never had that again. Number four, can you undo it too He cannot undo it. But if he has robbed if you have stolen some goods, then you agree that is wrong. He doesn't he he stops robbing. Number three, he doesn't Rob in future number four, that stolen item is yet with him. He can always return it to the rightful owner.
So in depending if you can fulfill first three have to fulfill the fourth if you can undo it and return the thing you fear of cause harm to someone else. So if all the four criterias are fulfilled or the first three are fulfilled, inshallah Allah will accept your repentance. And the best time of the year is to repent in Ramadan.
And Allah will accept your repentance in Ramadan is the best time when the dose the gates of heaven
When the gates of hell are closed, and the Satan changes the best time, I request sister that I've asked the best question at the best time. This is the month of Ramadan. For all the things whether it be major or minor, you ask for repentance, you pray to Allah small forgiveness and inshallah Stop it, don't do it again, and pray to Allah to give you that, that, that courage, and that ability not to do it again. And if we can undo it, undo it and upgrade our last mother to me forgive your sin, my sins, and all the sins of the viewer and a Pedro lasma than me he raised all the viewers, hundreds of 1000s and millions of viewers that are watching this program all over the world.
