LECTURE: RAMADAN RERUNS

Assalamu Alaikum.

Okay, this one isn’t a lecture either. It’s a Baba Ali video.

The brother makes some excellent points in it (although for us here in the Emirates and in other Muslim countries, the moon sighting wars don’t exist, alhamdulillah).

PS. The “Imam racing through Taraweeh leaving followers unable to understand the recitation” scenario happened to me once. It was in university. He went so fast that I had no clue what he was saying!
