it was three months because they didn’t have all these tests available now because they have these tests we don’t have to wait that period of time she can marry straight away this is not true so technology does not abolish the rules of the religion we can use technology benefit from technology but not on the account of the rules of our religion who must fast Ramadan and that’s very important to be clarified we say the accountable meaning the one who is pubescent and sane is obligated to fast Ramadan
if he is able because some might be sick they experience a hardship if they were too fast so those are not obligated to fast and the type of sickness that may incur in such a situation is of two types there is a sickness that one is most likely to be recovered from temporarily he could seek they took him to the hospital he did an operation so he stayed for a couple of days he wasn’t able to fast but he most likely he’s going to be recovered from it all why he needs to do he can break the fast and he can make him up later
but if his sickness most likely he cannot be recovered from someone has a top of sickness most likely is not going to be recovered from he’s not obligated to fast and he cannot make him up as well rather he might be paying the expiation he would pay the expiation instead if he is able so the expiation will be paid for every day he is not fasting also the lady that is menstruating and in the postpartum bleeding period they cannot fast and this is an Islamic reason they are allowed not to fast
and they are not allowed to fast in other words what they do they break the fast during these days and they can make him up later now if there is a breastfeeding woman or a pregnant woman that is unable to fast sometimes she might have freed on herself on her health she cannot fast she’s not obligated to fast she might have fear on the baby if she is pregnant she has fear she might abort the baby she might have miscarriage if she doesn’t eat world during the day then she is allowed to break the fast as well out of her fear for the baby if she is breastfeeding she might be worried about the baby not having sufficient milk she is allowed not too fast as well but they have to make up these missed days
the one who is travelling now in the past the travel was tedious tiring not like these days but travelling to a certain distance called Alka so it’s about 138 kilometers from the boundaries of one’s hometown if one is troubling their distance and more he is allowed to break his fast during his travel provided that his travel was established before dawn if one can stay fasting one can stay fasting he doesn’t have any hardship
it’s very easy for him it’s better for him to remain fasting and that’s the meaning of the verse recited at the beginning what assumed oh hi Ruru alaikum if you choose to fast that is better for you now we have cars with a condition even in the plane it’s not that toy as in the past so if you can remain fasting that would be better also we’ll talk about the integrals of fasting they are very simple two things first to have
the intention at night too fast the following day so every night you have from sunset till dawn you need to establish the intention in your heart too fast the following day second abstain from the in validators of fasting now the in validators are fasting are many but we mentioned sexual intercourse that invalidates one’s fast we mentioned inserting anything with a volume into the head all the body cavities through an open Inlet like drinking eating even taking medicine taking medicine that invalidates your fast but one may say yeah
but I need to take that medicine so if he is sick he needs to take that medicine as we mentioned he is not obligated to fast in that case if he expects to be recovered from this sickness later on he would make him up later on if he does not expect to be recovered from their sickness later on he would pay an expiation if he is able excluding one spirit or his saliva was still inside the mouth because some may ask can I swallow my saliva here while it is inside the mouth there is no problem if you swallow your saliva as many times as you want during today this does not affect your fast as long as it’s a pure when we say it’s a pure anti here it’s not contaminated with blood for instance because some people might be suffering from bleeding from the gum so if they are bleeding and the blood gets mixed with the saliva they need to spit it out so even if they are bleeding the fast is valid they continue fasting but they cannot swallow that saliva that is mixed with blood saying if for instance someone drank code you’ll just before dawn maybe Marbury or something like this and then after dawn his saliva is mixed with the mulberry juice
and the like for instance then he swallowed that saliva that is not pure it’s mixed with the juice that invalidates his fast so he needs to make sure his mouth is clean from any foreign substance if there is only the saliva that is pure and not changed he can swallow it as many times as he wants some may ask about smelling roses for instance or perfume this does not invalidate the fast because there is no entity of volume that is going inside so if you smell roses this does not invalidate your fast when you walk in the street sometimes the dust in the street might be inhaled inside your body cavity unintentionally so this does not invalidate your fast as well sometimes you might be a worker and spray painting for instance as you do that job you feel something in your throat this does not invalidate your fast
but anything that you can spit out you need to just keep that in mind also inducing vomit now some people might get sick during the month of ramadhan so if they vomit unintentionally all what they need to do to clean purify the mouth from the vomit because it’s classified as filthy substance so you have to clean your mouth before you swallow your saliva if you swallow your saliva that is mixed with
the vomit that invalidates your fast but if you perform what is called induced vomit you force yourself to vomit by putting your finger inside your mouth or putting any other things stick for instance and you force yourself to vomit that invalidate so fast whether you swallow anything back or not and apostasy apostasy is to leave Islam by committing a blasphemous saying or a blasphemous belief or a blasphemous action so if one was fasting then out of anger he started swearing at Allah or swearing at a prophet or at an angel or at something that is glorified in our religion such as swearing at the prayer swearing at fasting that takes one out of Islam what he needs to do to come back to Islam to say the to test if occations of faith no one is God except Allah Mohammed is a Messenger of Allah this is the way one enters Islam
say if one were to become Muslim he needs to have the correct belief in his heart about Allah and about the prophets and about Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and by testifying by his tongue that no one is god but Allah Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah he becomes Muslim the apostate actions such as prostrating to an idol or stepping on the holy quran or throwing it in the rubbish this is classified as blasphemous action that takes one out of Islam as well as for the blasphemous beliefs such as to believe
that allah subhana wa ta’ala is a body with limbs like a human being and the allah moves goes up and down because such a person has not had the proper belief about allah muslims believe allah does not resemble the creations so allah is not a human being Allah is not an angel Allah is not a body with limbs because Allah created us with all these characteristics all the attributes of the creations cannot be the attributes of God simply
because those who are similar to each other are susceptible to what could happen 20 of them I’m a human being or a human being like me so you get sick I get sick because I’m a human being like you you get tired I get tired you get sick I get sick you die I die because we are similar so I cannot be your Creator you cannot be my Creator but the creator of this whole universe does not resemble any of his creations a table is not made by another table at Shea is not made by another chain so the creator of this universe is Allah subhana WA Ta’ala who does not resemble any of the creations
so if you look at yourself simply you can deduce the proof about the existence of God you say I did not exist long time ago before I was born I was not existent I did not exist I came into existence I became existent I know as a matter of fact that I did not create myself because if one were to say that he created himself that would mean that he was before himself to create himself and that would mean he was before himself as a creator and after himself as a creation this is not accepted by the sound mind so he would deduce conclude
that there must be a creator for me who brought me into existence and that one who created me is the one that deserves to be worshipped and that is Allah the creator of the universe so if one has a wrong belief about Allah then he corrected his belief that allah subhanho wa taala does not resemble the creations allah is not a body to fill the sky or to be above the throne in a place or direction Allah is not a body the whole skies and the throne are creations of God who created them Allah so Allah is existent before them Allah doesn’t need them after Allah created them Allah doesn’t change because change simply is the most obvious sign that such a thing is a creation and Allah does not change all the attributes of Allah do not change so allah subhana wa ta’ala exists without a place and direction before creating the places and directions
and after creating the places and directions Allah is still without a place it’s as simple as that now everyone might be waiting for this slide in particular to spend a day of Ramadan like our beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam day how did he spend his day from dawn till night he can say this is the exemplary day of fasting our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to gather his companions and gives them the glad tidings of the beginning of Ramadan once it is confirmed to draw their attention.
and to give them a signal that the starting month is a month full of barakah blessings our beloved prophet started his day was praying fashion in congregation in the mosque as it was his norm in other months as well he would sit after Faysal praying supplicating allah azza wajal and praising allah until sunrise when it was fall noon just before the noon time the Prophet would perform salat ilaha the optional forenoon prayer and the Messenger of Allah used to praise Allah during Ramadan a lot and in other days
as well he used to give a lot of Sadaqat in charity during Ramadan especially after revising the Quran with angel jibreel angel jibreel used to come to the Prophet in Ramadan revise the whole Quran was a prophet when gibreel comes to the prophet and revises the Quran with him after Jerry leaves the Prophet will be faster than the first wind in making donations and sadaqa out of happiness to show obedience because to show thankfulness to allah azza wajal he’s extremely happy because he revises the koran was angel jibreel so the amount of excitement that he had would give the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that motivation to rush to make donations and this is what your situation should be during the month of Ramadhan he used to read Quran in abundance in Ramadan he used to hasten to break the fast after sunset.
so not before sunset after sunset so once the Sun sets the disk of the Sun disappears from the horizon then Yasha don’t delay one hour and the like it’s better to hasten to break your fast The Messenger of Allah would break the fast with fresh dates if they are unavailable then dry dates if they are unavailable than few sips of water the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to have salute as well so who is just before dawn would have something to eat such as dates
and some water this is called so who there is blessing in it and the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasalam said the Sahara faina physically Baraka because some people might say no I want to sleep but I want to wake up for the hold now it’s better if you wake up before dawn make some supplications even if you want to have a sip of water that is blessing in suhoor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam used to spend the last 10 nights of ramadan in the mosque and that is called ehtekaf.
and he used also to awaken his family and to prepare themselves by performing acts of obedience most of the nights during the nights of Ramadan so if you can do a tea calf in the mosque let us say once a week twice a week three times it’s very beneficial to do Attica if you spend this time we are in the mosque
I’m sure some of you might be doing security for 12 hours they take shifts long shifts but here in the mosque you just sitting relaxing having all these spiritual things praying maybe reciting Quran making supplication to allah azza wajal you have a special feeling when you are in the situation now the path of safety from the root of Abdullah Jabbar even abdullah along sorry may Allah accept the deeds who said that a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saying should you observe that I pray the five prayers
now that’s the minimum we talked about how to get the most of Ramadan but if you find yourself unable to achieve all of them or most of them at least adhere to the bare minimum and this is what this man asked the Prophet by saying should you observe me praying the five obligatory prayers fasting the month of Ramadan deeming the lawful as lawful and doing it deeming the unlawful as unlawful and avoiding it and I do not add anything to that would I enter paradise and the Prophet said yes pray five prays they won’t take 25 minutes from you 25 minutes in 24 hours 25 minutes.
it’s sad to see some people unable to perform these five obligatory prayers regularly and they miss out 25 minutes in 24 hours and some of them might say I didn’t have time Allah is the creator of time Allah is the one who created time and you don’t have time for the Creator 25 minutes to perform these bigotry praise it’s so sad so you should wake up even some people say yeah I know myself in ramadana I might become better.
but after Ramadan I go back to sinning you should wake up before it’s too night because the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us when son of adam commits a sin it leaves a mark like a black dot on one’s heart if he repents of that sin his heart would be cleansed from it would be clean back again if he does not and he commits more sins then more black dots will be left on his heart until his heart becomes filled with black layer and that is i learned that allah mentioned in the quran kal-el Ronna allah Kulu be him can we act upon the bad deeds are leaving black dots black marks on their hearts when your heart becomes black because of the sins
it’s gonna be very hard for you to pull back because now your heart had become like this big rock and you want to pull it back and you find yourself unable to pull back so always whenever you see yourself drifting from the right path you should go back to it wake up before it’s too late don’t say I might commit a sin again so I don’t want to repent repent now from the sin and you don’t know what happens in the future and the prophet sallallaahu mari wasalam said the majority of the children of adam would commit sins and the better ones amongst them are those who repent after committing since everyone might commit a sin in his life but the better one is one that repents from their sin. technology
so when you commit a sin rush to repent before it’s too late and prepare yourself for the day of judgment the day in which the mountains will turn into dust will be destroyed and the oceans will be lit in a blaze and dry out by this we conclude our lecture for tonight and we put this picture in the end that says Ramadan and opportunity of a lifetime. Ramadan 2020
