00:00:00--> 00:00:00

We're praying

00:00:02--> 00:00:10

and you see a fire starting on the stove. Can you leave your prayer? Is there anything you have to do when resuming the prayer?

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

Yeah, you definitely you actually you shouldn't leave your prayer. In fact, it is.

00:00:17--> 00:00:45

You know, like, I'll let you read something to you from allies, even abdus salam, he was one of the scholars of the, of the Hanafi school but he was a jurist, actually. And he has a book that he called the cover I don't come write the book that is the foundations of how we drive rulings and how do we understand our our faith right, in the context that we live in. So he says,

00:00:48--> 00:01:02

d mu d will empower the lower court Alma also mean Allah, Allah is Salah t Leanna in causal vodka and muslimeen and the law of detachment about the setup. Well, john Rubino musta, had any moon can be a unit

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

of solid, right, very nice. He says

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

that it is I'm actually reading from the screen. So that's why it seems like I'm looking around.

00:01:13--> 00:01:38

He says that you actually are supposed to example is should you save someone who has, you know, drowning, okay? Or should you finish your prayer, okay, or, you know, time of Salah is happening and you have to pray or you're praying or someone is drowning? What should you you know, put as your priority, it says the priority should be saving the life of the person who's drowning, okay?

00:01:40--> 00:02:26

That is because that is often in the lahi Min, or the Salah, that actually is better in the sight of Allah than you praying right now. Right? So this is a very clear understanding in our religion, right? It's, it's also logically, you know, very obvious, right, but even in the religion, how our scholars thought about these matters, they, they made these, these, this, these reference points, called the cover, right? And it's always that the well being of people is always, you know, first, over the rituals, the rituals come second, because the rituals you can take care of later on. Right. It's never that the ritual, you know, supersedes something like saving a person's life or saving,

00:02:26--> 00:02:46

you know, you know, potential disaster like a fires on the stove, preventing that from happening, right. It's actually contrary to the [???]tier and contrary to reasoning to do that, right. So, that is what he says, and, and handle that, like, you know, there's in a in the optional prayer in the,

00:02:47--> 00:03:27

the Sunnah or national prayer, you're actually allowed to move around. If there is, you know, something that is required, you can actually move around and, you know, take care of something while continuing your prayer, your prayer, you can do that you have to end the prayer, good stop this fire will take care of whatever is, you know, a bura a pending need or necessity and then come back and start your prayer all over again. Right and the way you whether you say a Solomonic home and you run away, or you just move on, and that essentially would be your prayer has finished. The sooner prayer is like eyeshadow the Lana says that Canada's hula Canada's hula hoops on the lawn and selama

00:03:27--> 00:04:04

recently filmed it while Babu la he mobilock Fuji to four Masha Hata Fatah, Holly sama Raja lm akami so this was in the house of the pros to them and Ayesha the most of them is praying in this house and the door is closed, I shall kick came to the house the door is locked. And he came the process and opened the door for her and went back to his spot a prayer all while he was praying. Right and this is a you know, authentic hadith that's intimacy and, and without so what's interesting about this is that it shows it's okay in like a pseudo prayer to even like move around like that.

00:04:06--> 00:04:36

But in the false prayer, you can't but the necessity of a fire or saving someone who is in trouble someone passed out in like the masjid and you have to immediately address you know, you know, address or tend to them, all of that supersedes everything. Right? And you finish your Salah afterwards, like, you know, when the Sahaba when armato the Lord who got stabbed in federal prayer, right. The Sahaba broke their prayer and you know, went and tended to Romana they weren't just like, okay, you know, let's finish our prayer. He's dying. Let him die.

00:04:39--> 00:04:39

Yeah.

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

So that's that

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

was very helpful. Yeah, it's. So I think the main distinction here is between the sun or another prayer and then the the facade right. I think that's the distinction here. That's right. Yes. Yeah. So there's no zooming prayer in the foyer.

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

But there is resuming prayer in the swimming. Right so so not very you can walk and say like, you know, turn on the stove and then come and continue your prayer. Prayer, you have to end your prayer. Go take care of that and restart your prayer. Right. But in any In any case, that kind of a necessity will supersede the prayer supersede the ritual. Okay, that's very helpful.
