I agree, but i did see some posts on SC where people were saying its ok to smoke during fast. 

Smoking is not allowed when a person is fasting, whether in the Holy Month of Ramadan or in any other month. If someone says smoking doesn't break the fast, that is incorrect and people should reply and explain it. This is also a reason that people need to provide Islamic rulings when they make a claim about something.

Which marja said that beef is makrooh? :shock:

I heard in qazwani’s speech let me share you the video, but I am doing my research on it.

I just find out that eating beef is Makrooh. It is halal but not recommended. 

Never before heard that beef is makruh. Islamic laws mention makruh meat and they don't mention beef:

Quote

It is Makruh (undesirable) to eat the meat of a horse, donkey or mule.

Yes, but  in the video Moulana Qazwani said, it is halal but not recommended. If we have choice of other meat we should pick other type of meat instead of beef.

These are two rulings regarding Yawm al-Shakk (Day of Doubt), which is the day where one is unsure whether it is the 30th of Sha’bān or the 1st of Ramaḍān. Given that the month of Ramaḍān is coming up in a few days, I thought the ruling would be beneficial to share. These are from volume 1 of Minhāj al-Ṣāliḥīn of Sayyid Sīstānī.

#979: If on the day of doubt, one performs a recommended, Qaḍā or Nadhar fast with the intention of it being the month of Sha'ban, it counts as the fast of Ramaḍān if it happens to be so. If either before or after noon it becomes known it is indeed the month of Ramadān, the person must renew their intention.

If a person fasts on the day of doubt with the intention of it being Ramaḍān, the fast is invalid (i.e. even if one figures out during the course of the day or afterwards that it was the month of Ramaḍān).[1]

If a person fasts with the intention of it being the fast of whatever the fast for that day actually is - whether it is obligatory or a recommended – it is considered valid. If one fasts with the intention that if it happens to be Sha'bān then let it be a recommended fast, and if it happens to be Ramaḍān then let it be an obligatory fast, such a fast is also valid.

If a person wakes up in the morning with the intention to eat, but it becomes known that it is the month of Ramaḍān, then the details of the previous ruling are applied for them.

The previous ruling is as follows:

#978: If a person does not perform the intention to fast in the month of Ramaḍān due to forgetfulness of the ruling, or of the fact that it is Ramaḍān, or due to ignorance of either of the two cases and they have not done anything that breaks a fast, then they remember, or they learn in the middle of the day that it is Ramaḍān, the fast is considered valid if they renew their intention before noon.

However, after noon, it is problematic for it to be considered valid, though out of precaution the person should renew their intention and finish the fast out of hope of it being accepted, but then perform its Qaḍā afterwards.

—-

[1] Based on the arguments I have read on this ruling from other jurisconsults, this is because the fast was a bid’āh (innovation) and was invalid to begin with. In other words, to fast on a day which is presumed to be the month of Sha’bān with the intention of it being Ramaḍān is an innovation and thus ḥarām and invalid.

That being said, I encourage all to benefit from upcoming live sessions by Shaykh Amin Rastani and Shaykh Mahdi Rastani - May 16 - June 5 2018 - where they will be going over the rules concerning the fast of Ramaḍān. These live session will also provide an opportunity for participants to ask any relevant questions on the spot.

Bismehe Ta3ala,

Assalam Alikum 

Beirut is getting ready for this beautiful month.

How can I explain the atmosphere that is occuring right before my eyes?

People are out packing the streets and into the grocery stores.  Streets and buildings are decorated with lights and signs celebrating the month of Mercy.   

Supermarkets are having sales and trying to get customers in their doors.

Children are asking questions about this holy month.

Patisseries, bakeries, sweet stores are preparing for the custom made desserts they have ready for 30 days of Ramadhan, when it is not available during the rest of the year.

The seamtresses are busy tailoring clothes.

There are even vans who left phone numbers for people to call them for 10,000 LL to travel during the day and get them back to Beirut for those who are not able to fast due to exams, labor jobs, or long hours of the day.

My heart is filled with joy because Insh'Allah I live to see another month of Ramadhan.

From my family to yours, wishing you all a fulfillig month of worship, peace, and joy.  

Forgive me please if I have wronged anyone, or said anything hurtful.  

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah
