Sidi Sohail Hanif

Fasting, preparing for Ramadan

When a king speaks to you, its very different than someone else. That’s why we look at the Quran first

Ya implies distance, he is showing his majesty. He is a king speaking to his servants

Pagan religions did not come with fasting only the monotheistic ones did.

Fasting is a valuable act of worship

Avoid the haram

Three reasons for disobedience
1. Naafs (self)
2. Devil
3. World

The least benefit of fasting is controlling the Naafs

The word “Ramdd” means to burn (that is the root of the word Ramadan)

The Quran was revealed to the lowest heaven in Ramadan. Then revealed piecemeal to the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him)

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to fast in the cave of Hira

Fasting makes things easy for you, it helps you

A person may begin Ramadan in one place and then finish up in a different place

This is the month of worship, piety and gratitude

The word bashr means the skin

The more piety a person has the more they get out of the Quran

Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala showing his love for us

Fasting cleans up the hearts in Ramadan

Sheikh Abdurrahman Shaghouri said the book of the Sufis is the Riyad As-Saliheen

The Prophets (peace and blessings be upon him) breath, was more worship that we could never equal in our entire lives

The month of Ramadan is the month of the cure, don’t take the poison with it. If you do then you won't get the where Ramadan is desiring to go

One expedition (Kaffara) covers all mistakes, everything in the past but not in the future

When reading the Quran out aloud, you have to be careful, of the people present. Don’t force people to listen or make them uncomfortable

If a group is present and at least one is listening, then its not a sin

Tarawiah means to pause at least 3 times (it's plural)

If it was two breaks it would called something else
