Points Covered by The Shaykh:

  • The month of Ramaḍān, the month of the Qu’rān is close in which the servants of Allāh seek nearness and closeness to Allāh with actions of obedience in so many forms and ways, hoping for the Pleasure of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى).
  • This will not be fulfilled except by educating the soul, by behaving the nafs, by the salvation of the heart, by the truthfulness of the tongue, the limbs, and the pillars.
  • Purify your intention and make all actions sincerely for the sake of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى). This matter can only be attained by the success of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى).
  • Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) legislated the ways and means to which the servant of Allāh attains the pleasure of Allāh.
  • Every Command by Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) that He decreed is either decreed as a universal command or a legislative command. He (سبحانه وتعالى) decreed the reasons for the commands.
  • The reasons to attain the objective by which the servant of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) has actions of worship being accepted by Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) is to reach this blessed month.
  • Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) has legislated upon all the Ummah just as he had upon all those nations before us.
  • For every nation, a legislation and a methodology has been made for them.
  • Fasting is from the collection of legislation that Allāh has revealed to nation after nation.
  • Objective of such legislation is the belief, to be upon the correct Aqīdah.
  • Sharī’ah of Allāh revealed to correct the Aqīdah of the people, fasting legislated upon the believers.
  • The believer will always be happy with the legislation of Allāh. The heart of the believer would be joyful with the commands of Allāh.
  • Amongst the believers racing with one another upon the obedience of Allāh and rushing towards the pleasure of Allāh which is in opposite to the way of the hypocrites.
  • Allāh will love all actions of obedience only from the believers such as fasting and tasbi.
  • The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلمsaid, “Whoever fasts Ramaḍān based upon belief and expecting the reward only from Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى)…”
  • From the obligations of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) the believers accept that with tranquility, happiness, glad tidings, joy which are signs/shows the love of the believers for the commands of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى).
  • The believers will always be looking out for one another, helping one another and happy with one another and be upon joy seeing one another. These are the signs from īmān.
  • Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) is easy upon the believers in His ruling and judgment, and happy with those who follow His commands.
  • What the Prophet commands us with, do as much as you can, and whatever he forbids us from leave it all together.
  • Obligation of prayers were first made for 50 every day, and Allāh lightened the number to 5 for the believers, out of His Mercy.
  • The objective beyond the obligation of fasting is so the believers may obtain Taqwa, and He (سبحانه وتعالى) tells the believers what the objectives are, He clarifies next to the legislation why the believers must do what is obligated upon them to do.
  • The believers can never separate the Wisdom of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) from the legislation of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى).
  • Ramaḍān is just one month out of the year which every human being is capable of fasting, except for the person who has a sickness, or is travelling, but should make up the days of missed fasting (outside of the month of Ramaḍān).
  • Verily after hardship there is ease. Hardship is one, but the ease from Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) is many.
  • Every calamity a human being is afflicted with, it is only according to the level of that person’s īmān.
  • When afflicted with calamity, look to those who are afflicted with more calamity than you,
  • The sick person who is not able to fast, can break their fast. Then what till he can fast to make up those days when he broke his fast.
  • The traveler can choose to fast throughout Ramaḍān or can break his fast and make up the missed fast when he is not travelling.
  • The Companions of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)would not look down on each other if some were fasting and others were not whilst they were travelling.
  • They are capable of fasting without any hardship, those who are not capable then they have to feed a misqīn (a poor person), or masāqīn (many poor persons).
  • More than one opinion for those who are not able to fast. The majority of consensus of the Scholars says the person must feed a misqīn (a poor person), for everyday he did not fast.
  • The amount of food in weight to be fed to the misqīn (a poor person), rice, barley and dates.
  • The Qu’rān is the Speech of Allāh and was revealed one part at a time during the month of Ramaḍān.
  • The people of Polytheism used to be against the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and would come at him with all kinds of doubts.
  • Allāh spoke to Jibrīl with parts of the Qu’rān to answer the doubts and Jibrīl would relay this (by the Permission of Allāh) to the Prophet.
  • The knowledge of the Qu’rān is all mentioned in detail in the preserved tablet.
  • The Blessed night is mentioned in Sūrah ad-Dukhān.
  • Every perfect command of Allāh is revealed on Laylatul-Qadr (the night of Qadr).
  • The Qu’rān is for the hearts to come to life with and pushes away any confusion or suspicion from the believer.
  • The Qu’rān is a guidance and a cure.
  • Whoever reads the The Qu’rān will be able to distinguish between the light and the darkness, obedience, and disobedience.
  • People of other religions do not have any thing that they can use to push away any suspicion from themselves.
  • Where did we come from? Why did we come? Where are we going? The disbelievers are unable to answer these questions. The Believer knows the answers to the questions.
  • All the superpowers will not help the disbeliever in the afterlife.
  • There is no honour except by the honour of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) and by returning to Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى).
  • Clarification is from the Guidance and the criterion of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى).
  • The importance of paying attention to The Qu’rān in the month of Ramaḍān.
  • Jibrīl (عليه السلام)would visit the Prophet every night in Ramaḍān and study the Qu’rān with him.
  • The believer should not pre-occupy themself with just memorizing the Qu’rān but must learn what each ayāt means.
  • The believer should delve into the books of tafsīr (interpretation) to understand the meaning of each ayāt.
  • Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) clarified the meanings of each ayāt for His Prophet first.
  • It became a requirement upon the Prophet to clarify for the rest of mankind.
  • The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was from the most generous of the people, and even more generous during the month of Ramaḍān.
  • The believers should pay attention to the recitation, the remembrance, the actions, the rulings, the judgments, and seeking the pure understanding and pondering of the Qu’rān.
  • Do not boycott the Qu’rān, by not reciting it, or by not acting upon it, or by not seeking the pure or any ailment from the Qu’rān, by not learning the wisdoms of the Qu’rān or by not pondering upon the Qu’rān.
  • The majority of the Scholars are preoccupied with studying the Qu’rān during the month of Ramaḍān.
  • Studying the tafsīr of the Qu’rān is especially important for those who do not know enough of the Arabic.
  • It becomes a must upon the believer to act upon that which they have studied and understood from the Qu’rān.
  • There is no success without the Qu’rān, without the book of Allāh(سبحانه وتعالى).
  • The Qu’rān is the solid rope of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى). The words of Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) will never end and have no beginning.
  • The believer should try to read and study and understand the Qu’rān in one month (along with the tafsīr (interpretation).
  • How do we know when the month of Ramaḍān starts?
  • In the middle of the month of Sha’bān the moon is full and then starts to reduce in size.
  • The absence of the moon being fast or slow during Sha’bān and the month possibly ending in 29 days if the moon was fast in dissolving. If the moon was disappearing slow, then the month would possibly end in 30 days.
  • Only the legislated sighting of the moon can confirm when the month of Ramaḍān starts.
  • Calculations are not used in determining the new month or the start of Ramaḍān, only if the moon is not sighted after 30 days.
  • When the sighting is fulfilled then it is upon the believers to fast.
  • The witness sighting the new moon must fill a certain criterion.
  • You should say Allāhu akbar for His guiding you to His religion.
