Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu 30 verses 30 days day seven today we're looking at verse number 87 from salted Nikita. Allah says, oh, who you believe yeah you were letting me know that you have the motiva tema handle Allahu lacob. What they do in Allah Allah you have butadiene, do not forbid upon yourselves. Those pure things that Allah Subhana Allah Allah has made Allah. Allah does not like the people who are transgressive do not transgress because Allah subhanaw taala doesn't like such people.

00:00:36--> 00:01:08

So now the reason behind this versus that a group of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala and good intentions, they thought to themselves, that why not we take this an extra step? Why don't we take this further and go ahead and make some things which other people do, which appear to be away from piety, make those things haram upon ourselves, and stop ourselves from those and abstain from them. So for example, they said to themselves, that we're no longer going to be

00:01:09--> 00:01:33

having relationships with women. So they will lead a light life that is a life of celibacy. And some of them they said that, you know what, we're not going to sleep at night rather, all night long. We're going to pray and worship Allah subhana wa, Tada. Others, they said that we're no longer going to eat meats anymore. Rather, we're just going to do with other types of foods.

00:01:35--> 00:02:17

And some of them they even went further, and they thought about castrating others, they thought about a number of different things. And to this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told them, first of all, he told them to stop and do this. The profits are silom also told them that I stand up the night in prayer, a portion of it and I also go to sleep, I fasted I break my fast. I also have relationship with women as well, whoever it goes away from my sooner than that person is not for me. And it was within this context that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this verse where he said, Yeah, you are letting me know, oh, who you believe, not to have the multivitamin.

00:02:18--> 00:02:56

All of the pure things that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has made halal upon you. Do not make them haram upon yourself, and don't transgress IE saying that making these things haram that Allah has made halal, is a form of transgression. So don't make these things harm upon yourself. Rather, since they're allowed leave them Hara. Allah likes that you do the things that Allah Subhana Allah has made halaal upon you, my dear brother, but your sister, even till today, by the way, I mean, we might be looking at the story and saying, Oh, this is what the companions had done. The reality is even till today, some people

00:02:57--> 00:03:37

they end up Miss interpreting our Deen and they end up ascribing to our Dean forms of quote unquote, piety that is not really from piety within the deen. So when we looked at the issue of some of the companions saying, we're no longer going to eat meat, doesn't that remind you of vegetarianism? Because there are some people who are vegetarians, and they try to ascribe this idea of vegetarianism to the deen and some of them even say the profitsystem himself was a vegetarian. We've heard this as well. And when we do have high carbs, now inshallah we'll be coming to eat the filter, but when it comes, and some people also bring up this idea that hey,

00:03:40--> 00:03:53

why do we need to slaughter? Can we not do with the other type of produce that we have in the world? Is that not food? Is that not this? Is that not that? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling you to hurry multivitamin?

00:03:54--> 00:04:36

Yes, eat everything in moderation based on your health requirements, and so on and so forth. But don't make those things out on upon yourself. And if you choose to have some dietary measures within your life, don't try to superimpose that on the religion. Because we had a very interesting story within our tradition, in which Abdullah bin Massoud was given some meat along with some salt. And he began to eat from this and there was a group of other people also with him eating as well. And there was one person However, he ended up he ended up walking away and moving away from the live in Missouri that that time and the food that was brought, and so on and so forth. So even Mr. Ruud

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

said, take some of this food and we'll give it to that person that walked away. Maybe he is shy eating with us or something like that. So take this food and give it to them. Give it to that person so you can eat on its own. The person said I don't want this food. So when Mr. Ruud said to him, are you fasting or something? What's the story? So he said no, I'm not fasting so he said what's the story mashup Look, why are you doing this?

00:05:01--> 00:05:05

He said, I have made a term upon myself to eat

00:05:06--> 00:05:06

meat

00:05:08--> 00:05:52

forever and ever. So even Mr. Rude he said, this is from the footsteps of shape on things that Allah has made halaal upon us, keep them that way. Yes, your body type might be more suitable for one type of food. But if you choose to have a dietary measure in your life, don't ascribe that dietary measure to our religion because other people might have other dietary measures that are more suitable for their lifestyle or their body types and so on so forth. So Allah has made within this world certain things Hold on, keep them halaal enjoy them. And if you have within the halaal of Allah subhanho wa Taala some personal preferences, choose them but don't make the others haram and

00:05:52--> 00:06:02

don't try to describe your personal preferences and lifestyles. To the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala does not come alone and for listening for some Allahu Allah say at Nam hamedan Allah Allah, he was
