The narration was a weekend every week nourish. So we say that because if it's a week narration, then we say what the default and that is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he wants to do something, he does not do anything except by the, by the order of Allah subhanaw taala. And so
one thing that we also learned from this hadith is that, whoever, if it's difficult for a person to come pray Fajr and to compare Aisha,
it doesn't mean that they are hypocrites, but it means that they have a it's a sign of weakness and faith, weakness and Ema. You know, most of us we like, well, that's everybody, right? Yeah, it's difficult for everyone, you know, for everybody. But there are some people, like during the time that the Companions, they always would come, it was the default that people came to pray in the masjid, the default. And the only people who are known for the hypocrisy. But it's just
through time, of course, our faith and our Eman becomes weaker and weaker. We don't want to admit it, but it's a sign of weakness and faith. And it's,
it's a sign that it's a it's one of the
one of the things that if we, if we, if it's difficult for us, then it's a form of hypocrisy,
that we have a little bit of it in us that we should actually work hard to try to read read that promise. And I know sometimes it sounds harsh to say,
of course, it's, it's a struggle all the time. But if you feel that that is we have a lot of work to do. You know, and if you think if you think you don't, you don't have a lot of work, then that means when you actually do need that that means you have if you feel like oh no, I you know, I'm really good and so forth. That's actually a word or also from the from the Chatbot. Yes.
Yeah, that's, that's the thing. That's what we're talking about right now. If you're playing at home, look for 5g in Asia, or for the obligatory pervert if you're able to come and you don't come by if you don't come and you feel like it's sometimes it's difficult, like I said, it's a form it's a form of weak weakness and faith. Why is it so difficult for the hypocrites because they don't have any faith don't have any emotion at all, and Ema. So the more the more easy it is for you, then it's an indication that your iman is actually strong, stronger than
the hypocrites, the hypocrites, they only pray when other people are watching them.
And sometimes, you know, that's the only time they do is because they know people are watching. And so the ones are the one that is most difficult. Is that because why? We mentioned the reasons why right? Because they are they
because the person is
you know the he's in the dark and nobody can see so that he that he's not benefiting. It's not benefiting. You don't see like our Masjid. Yes. You know, we have lights all the time. We like the time the Prophet, there's no lights and so you can't see. So you might say, well, what if somebody struggles like and they try as hard? He comes to the masjid. Isn't that like an extra reward? Isn't that doesn't that person get a reward also for his for struggling and for fighting that knifes? Yes he does. But which one is better? The one who struggles to come to the masjid? Or the one who is always used to coming to the masjid and going to the masjid for him as a habit. good habit. Yeah,
he's just already motivated. Which one you might say? Well, the person some people might think that or the person who's struggling to go to the masjid. Maybe he's getting a lot more reward because he's working so hard. Right? He's working so hard. And the other person it's so easy for him. He's so used to the group go to the masjid all the time. And he's always used to it. So it's easy for him. So which one gets which one is better? The one who struggles or the one who's says is
the ones already going, but the one the one who's like it's easy for him to go. Which one's more
actually the one who it's easy for him to go to the masjid is in a higher level. It's better. Why? Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and we have another Hadith that's related to Quran right and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa so said Allah will Quran merciful, Safar LK Rommel, Bara, those who are proficient in the recitation of the Quran. They are with the noble scribes amongst the angels.
if that's their level, their status, that's a very high status.
They are proficient and recitation of the Quran will lead the
way at the data if we get attacked Tao V and the one who recites it, and he struggles in it well, who either he shut up and it's difficult for him, fellow Aijalon, he will get to rewards. Yes, he will get to rewards, right? He will get to reward his struggle and he's struggling to come to the masjid. He gets the reward for that struggle. But that person who doesn't need to struggle because he's already like, you know, his, he's so used to it, that it's part of his habits to come to the masjid. He's at a different level.
Like that person is it's in a different level. Why? Why? Because the Prophet Salam said the person who is proficient in the recitation of Quran, what is proficient, he reads the Quran, he doesn't struggle, right? Because he already struggled for a long time. And now this is the reward of that. So at the beginning, if it's difficult for you to come to the masjid, right, you you, you get your reward for for fighting against your knifes. And to come to the masjid, that reward is also very great. But you want to get to a level where you don't have to struggle so much.
That it becomes you know, there's so so many other things you struggle with, right? But let's not make that one. That was you struggle with. Right? And so that's why those who are always in the masjid, and those who come to the masjid, but it's hard for them and they're trying very hard. Yes, they get a lot of reward for that for the for the effort that they make. But those who are already, you know, the Eman their faith is already strong. And they're always in the masjid, they were coming to the masjid. Like I said, that's an a different level. And so this, just like somebody who, you know, like, you say, for example, like a student, and Allah will relate method Lana,
like a student who studied, he's just starting his studies, and he's struggling to memorize. He's struggling to memorize, you know, let's say, the names of medicine, even yoga and medicine. He's struggling, because you know, medical school is difficult, and so forth. So that person is struggling. But he's trying to then if he's, if he tries hard, right, it's praiseworthy, like, yeah, that's good. You're trying really, really hard. Right? But somebody who is already a very proficient doctor, he knows he's like, he knows the ins and outs of
which one gets paid more.
That person that surgeon was, like, very proficient well known is, is very skilled.
And so that's what if you're struggling, don't think that.
Okay, I'm going, I'm going to get a lot of who, yes, you will get a lot of reward. It's crazy. And the thing is, you know, in the dunya, the dunya, you don't get the reward for your efforts, if you don't get the result.
You know, sometimes you look, for example, let's say you take a test, you know, you're in school, right? And you take the test and you fail,
you fail the test, then you go to the teacher said,
you know, just just just give me an A, because I tried so hard. Like, I tried really hard, I stayed up all night, and I studied, but you know, it's difficult for me, what's that? What's the teacher because
I can't help you. If I gave it to you to give to every student, right? I have to give them but Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will reward based on your effort. Whatever effort you put in, even if you don't achieve the results, you will still get the reward for the efforts that you make. And that's why there are some prophets and messengers of Allah, that will come forth on the day of judgment. And they will have
an abundance of followers, like a group of followers, and there'll be some who have three or four, and there'll be some who have no nothing. Nobody followed them. They were sent to a group of people. But no, not a single person.
Not a single purchase person found them. So did you get any results? No, but he still gets
the reward for his actions and effort.
And so and that's why, yes, when you struggle in sha Allah, Allah knows what's in your heart. Let's say you go forward and you and you do your very best and Allah will reward you greatly. And even if you win, you win.
Do you make the conviction to go? Let's say for example, Friday prayer, let's say, you know, like tomorrow, Inshallah, I'm going to pray for you in the masjid.
I'm going to go to the masjid to pray. So you set your alarm and you take all the precautionary measures. And then
you sleep. Sometimes you sleep so deep, the alarm goes off, you don't even hear their time, their days, you're so tired, your alarm went off, anywhere off, and it's already got it stopped already, because the alarm is tired. You didn't do that.
It gets to the point where the larger sizes shuts down and right. I don't know how long it is. It depends on what what alarm you're using some alarms, it's like, you know what, this guy's not waking up, they just shuts down because it's no use for after 1520 minutes. And he's not. It's not being stopped. It just stops like it. Either. There's nobody in the house. Right? Or, you know, it's sad that you are you're so deep asleep, you're like I wake up anyways. And so sometimes the alarm is going off, right and somebody wakes you up like your wife is Wake up, wake up, was my alarm didn't go off? No, it's gone off, right?
And you don't even hear the alarm, right? So sometimes you set the alarm you do all that you can then you still go to sleep and you still don't wake up and go to the masjid on time. Do you still get the reward of going to the masjid?
You still get the reward of going to the masjid. Why? Because you are you? Do you get the reward of going to the masjid? And as if you're praying in the masjid? Yes, you will get the exact same reward. Whether you go or not. Why? Because you want it to go, you already made the conviction, you took the steps to go ready. And it's just so happened that you didn't wake up. But you made the effort. So when you wake up, what do you do, you say
I want to go to the masjid and you made the conviction, once you get to the point of conviction, you will inshallah get the same reward, you get the reward, even if you're not able to do so because, you know, when you're sleeping, it's sometimes out of your control. So now, if you do not
take the precautionary measures, then that's a different that's a different, different ruling. So like some of our shareholders, shareholders, Amy and I used to mention, like some, some scholars, especially some of the Han Abdullah especially, because the Hanabi like they consider a person who abandons a prayer intentionally to be an act of Kufa.
And so that's the opinion of the handle the men have. And so they, some of them are of the opinion that if you, if you let's say, you know,
you know, it's been a long day, you know, there's some days you do, you have a lot of work, and you're tired. And you know, you know that you're not going to get up if you don't put the alarm clock.
So you just say, you know, I'm so tired trying to forget about the alarm and you're asleep. Whenever I wake up, let me wake up.
Like whenever I wake up anyway, like you don't put the alarm clock, you don't take any but you know, you yourself you know yourself. You're saying like, you know what, I don't put the alarm clock in the back of your mind. If you don't you know that you don't put the alarm clock, you're not gonna wake up for failure
in other ways.
So you don't put to the club because you're so tired. You don't want to put the alarm clock.
So those who do not want to put the alarm clock, and they know that they're not going to wake up for Fudger
it's the same as somebody somebody abandoning the prayer, the Friday prayer on purpose.
Because in inaction you actually you know, because you know that you're not gonna get up. You don't lie to yourself, say, you know, I'm gonna get I mean, maybe I'll get up, you know, if Allah wills and I'll get up.
Yeah, that's your insha Allah right? You know, some people when they say Insha Allah, it's like, you know, it's not happening.
Allah, that's not happening. So inshallah we'll get up, you know, in sha Allah, I'll get up. But
in with your, in your actions, psyche intending to not get up at all. And so that's why those who you know, especially the acid, the HANA villa, when it comes to the obligation, or the abandoning of one prayer
is actually an act of Kufa or you know, the takes the person outside the state of Islam. And then that that person not putting on the alarm is like that person that abandoning the prayer himself purpose, because he knows he's not going to get up. So.
So we say that the person who struggles personal stress
if somebody finds that they're struggling, how can What? What are some of the things that they can do?
What anytime you struggle with anything, of course, the main thing is when it comes to doing good deeds, like the Messenger of Allah, Allah, so when it was time for prayer, he was something that he enjoyed. It was something that he enjoyed that he found comfort and tranquility. And He found you know, in the prayer, that's where that's where you find happiness. You know, there are certain things that you look forward every day.
You look forward to every single day. Some people look forward to lunchtime. The kids, they look forward to recess. Some class some people like in high school, they look forward to PE class, because, you know, they get to play and they're in the daytime. You know, everybody looks forward to something.
And a lot of people they go to work, they look forward to getting off work. Right? And some people look forward to just go to sleep. That's it. What is the Muslim look forward?
What is the lever look forward? I believe it looks forward to going to the masjid to pray and finding tranquillity in that. And that's why the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, The, as we mentioned before, many times, he said would you worry that Kurata ayeni for Salah. My comfort is in the prayer. That's why I find comfort. That's where I find comfort. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When he mentioned that Scalo Sultan, Allah Munna, Philippine Salah that the ratio was solid for the heaviest prayer, call me is the heaviest, and it's the most difficult. Pray for the month 18 is solid Russia and solid. So from this, we know that
is not sincere, then it becomes very difficult to do good deeds. It's hard to do good deeds. So because if one is not sincere, you'll see that they only do good deeds when people are there. So if you are having a hard time,
if you are having a hard time doing good deeds, in private,
if you have a hard time doing good deeds in private, then it's an indication that there is maybe the or maybe your intention needs to be checked. That you do something when you do something, you do it for the sake of Allah. You do it only for Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't do it for anyone else. And because a person who does who has Rhea, just like the hypocrites, it's difficult for them to do to do good deeds, of course,
in private, and especially, of course, to do any good deeds, because because the only time they do good deeds is because they're showing off. And so the fact that it's difficult for them, it's an indication that that Rhea
Rhea, which is showing off
is something that makes it you makes it difficult for you to do good deeds. And so that's why when you're doing something, check your intention. And the shaitan is very, very cunning.
Very tricky, deceitful.
Sometimes he will say to a person,
he will say to you, like you know, why don't you just pray at home?
Why don't you pray at home instead of in the masjid because, you know, it's, you're more likely to be sincere.
Because you go to the masjid people are gonna see you.
People are gonna see you don't want that. So you know, it's better to pray at home maybe because I will have more sincerity.
Right? Isn't that like, doesn't that make sense?
Does that make sense? Right? You might say yeah, that makes sense. Right? But the shaytan is very deceitful.
Why did you not go to the masjid?
You went to the you don't want to go into the masjid because you're afraid that people will see you. So that means you have left a good deed because of the people.
So that itself is really awesome.
Not doing a good deed because of people.
Is Rhea just like doing a good deed because of people his show area also. So why
if you are going to pray, then just do it for the sake of Allah.
Why did you not just go pray in the masjid even though there are people there? If you're doing for the sake of Allah doesn't matter if people see or not, you know, it doesn't matter because you're not doing it for them. Whether people see you don't see you, you're gonna go. But if you leave a good deed because of the people, you're not leaving it because of Allah, you're leaving it because of people, because you're afraid of people. So anytime you do something for people, or you leave something because of people and it's a good deed, it's the same thing. You've just, you've just tried to avoid another one or a pit, and you fell into another pit. That's another bit. And so
that's why the shaytaan is very, very cunning and deceitful. That he will make you do a good deed. And he will and he will, he will embellish a bad deed to make a bad deed look good.
To make a bad deed look good. So he will make sometimes a good deed
look better than
in a better deep.
And that's why when a person has FIP understanding
those who have a flawless they have knowledge, the shaitan can harm them
because they're doing deeds based on mercy ROM based on knowledge based on sincerity, if you're sincere, the shaytaan can harm you. And so that's another benefit that we get that Rhea Rhea makes it difficult for a person to do good deeds, another can another
benefit that we extract from this is the great benefit the great reward of praying in the masjid for Fajr the great reward of Asia and for that because he says well, Allah Munna Murphy Hema, the Tao Houma La Habra, if they knew what's in it, they would have come to it even if it's even if they had to crawl. Well, what does it mean here? Well, oh yeah, Allah Munna Murphy, Hema, if they knew that means some people might think, Oh, they do the great reward of it, maybe. But some of the scholars have said
and this is backed by another Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said,
and this hadith is I Buhari Well, leadin fcbd By he in his hand is my soul. Low. Yeah, Allahu Ahad home. If one of them were to know and know who he is, you do our concert meaning Miramar, tiny has, has entertained. The Shaheed Alicia, he said, If one of you were to find, if you if you could get if you were to go to Asia, then you would get our patents I mean, what is
a lot of
a lot of MS Word a lot is actually just bones
you know, the bones will get a mat. And as he said, or a you know, like a big bone out of Congress. I mean, and that means a big bone, right? A big bone that has some meat on it. Right? The word Arpan is a bone. And it has some meat on it only, oh, near methane and metamath
is, you know the area between the two shoulder plates. And so what that means is, if the hypocrites found just a little bit of benefit, then they would have come
and the hypocrites if they found just a little bit of benefit in this world than they would have. And that's why people who don't have faith, who don't have Eman. The only thing that pushes them to do something is the benefit of this world. The benefits the feeding benefits of this world. They don't think about the greater benefit of the Hereafter because they don't believe in the hereafter. And that's why the worst people
are the worst people. You know, you might think, you know, some of the worst people are the atheists,
the atheists and those who don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala because they only do this, they will only do something that will benefit them in terms of benefit them in there to fulfill their desire, that's all and if they lose that they don't have any hope. And that's why
the people who are struggling like especially in wars, you know, like they found out they did refugee do in the refugee camps and so forth.
Those who are scaping, war difficulties, they find that those who are in the most difficult situations, the people who commit suicide the most are the people who don't believe in God. Because they don't have anything else that they say, Oh, this is life and this is all that is. It's not worth living. It's not worth living. But those who are connected the hereafter, they're, you know, they're the most in terms of the most patient people. And the most successful people because they, you know, in terms of like, you know, like, in terms of the patience and strength, because they have a greater objective. And so, the hypocrite only comes and you look at the masjid, right, anytime.
And in some of the, you know, the masjid, if there's something in the masjid, like, if you were to have just food, that somebody knows that there's food after fajr you'll see that just because of that, there's more, there'll be more people, just a little bit, anything of this dunya people will come. And that's why if you you will see that there's some you know, it's not wrong, you know, sometimes you want to get people to get used to coming to the masjid. So if you were to have like a breakfast in the masjid, you will see you have more people than if there's no breakfast in the masjid, like in the weekend sometimes and some massages. Let's say they have breakfast in the
masjid. And it's a good thing, especially when you have you know, youngsters and you want to get them used to coming to the masjid. Now after that they, you know, it helps them out a little bit, but it shows that even if you have just a little bit, people will come, people will come. Another benefit that we can extract from this hadith is that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Mercy messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
You know, his his actions, show that show
that praying in the masjid, in Gemma and congregation is something that is very, very important, something very, very great. Why? Because the Messenger of Allah, Allah is on the south is by default, he was role for him, he was very, very compassionate,
compassionate and loving towards the Companions, with all with that compassion that in him.
Even with that compassion, he still wants to first burn their houses down.
He says I want to burn it shows how important it is to send a message that you know what, let's, let's do this. So that people know how important it is. And sometimes you just do it one time and people like, okay, it's nobody will, nobody will come. And you know, sometimes, as a teacher or as a parent, sometimes you have to there are times when you have to be strict. To teach them a lesson, even though you love them. You want to teach them a lesson. So even though you love them, sometimes you're strict and harsh, and you want them to do this, and you want them to do that. Because you know, like, you know, you tell them you tell your children to study, you say you have to study hard.
Why? Because if you don't study hard, you don't get good grades, then you're not going to be successful in life, when we're just thinking about this life.
And so you wake them up, you remind them and you help them out and you do all kinds of what did they want to do.
They don't want to do any of that. They don't want to get up they just want to play video games.
Spend all the time. But then sometimes you say you know sometimes you have children, right? Who have money. They don't know how to spend money, you give them the money. They just like buy everything and anything that's we're very wasteful.
Things that don't benefit them. You say no, no. Why do you say this? Because because you know that, you know, this is something that's valuable. Don't waste it on something that you're going to play for one or two days. And then then you're not going to benefit from it after that. It's just a waste. So you teach you teach people so the prophets of Allah knows, he knows the great reward that's in front door and further in Asia and the reward is so great that he wants to do this
is not just making it up like no, he really wants to do this, why he wants to do this because of his love and compassion for wanting the old man to do good
to do good. He said, You know what, you guys don't know the reward of it. You know, but let me just get you used to this so that you will then you in the end you'll thank me for right. In the end when you see the reward is Al Hamdulillah. He did that. And so sometimes we
discipline our children who
discipline ritual, they don't like it. They don't like it. Sometimes you yell at them, but they don't like they don't like it. But you want them to do something, because they don't understand yet the importance of certain things. They didn't, they didn't live through it. And so that's why there's so many things that you would say right now. Yeah, Allah, if I knew what I if I, if I knew then what I know now.
Like, if I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't know waste my time do all of those things. And there are things that you do right now that you think about in the past, but it's embarrassing. Why was what was I thinking? What was I thinking when I did that? Right? And then I wish somebody at that time told me to do this. I wish somebody at that time, you know, forced me to memorize the Quran, right? Or force with a steady force me to do this, why? I wish I had somebody who was like, more strict at that time now, at least I would have some female, right? I would have this and I will have that inshallah so so when you grow up, and you realize, you know, what, if someone ever had
somebody strict with me, in those particular areas, then maybe I would have been better, I would have gained this and again, getting that. So the messenger of Allah Allah, but you know, eventually, you know, right, you know, like, in the Hereafter, you will see, and you'll see the benefits of it. But sometimes you don't see the benefit of it. Because you're too young, you're young, and you're immature. And that's why you are sometimes you know, some children, teenagers, they think they know everything already. You tell them, You're lucky, they get to a certain age, like, you know, they don't want to listen to you. And then when they grow up, they start quoting what you used to tell
them, uh, you just like, as we call us, or we call our parents also. My father used to say this, yeah. But when he said that to you during that time, did you listen?
Maybe not. Right? And so the Messenger of Allah Allah, and because? Because he, why is this? Why is he working so hard to try to teach us because he sees the great reward has been shown. And
he's been shown, like,
a large loss of a house showed them this and showed him that. And so he knows and he's trying, and that's why the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam said my example. My example is like, example, me is like the example of someone who is trying to prevent all these flies and insects from flying into the you know, there's these fly these insects and flies are these insects and animals that are, you know, these birds are these little insects and nighttime when they see fire. They it's so bright, that they go into it, because they see it. So right. And what happens when they go to it, they die. So it's like me, I'm trying to push people away. So to save them, but they see this brightness, but
in the end that it's bright, yes, but it's harmful.
It's harmful. So the dunya is bright. The dunya is, is very, very alluring. It's shiny and bright. But it can destroy you.
It will destroy you if you dive into it, if you die.
So if you dive into it, it will destroy you. And so the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because of his mercy. He actually he wanted to.
And the fact that he wanted to just do that shows how great the reward is. And it also shows how shows how harmful, not coming to the masjid for further measure are
not coming to the masjid, for obligatory prayers when you can't, this shows how harmful it is. Otherwise, he wouldn't have said that. He wouldn't have said he would have bothered to do to do that. He wanted to do that because he wants everyone to come. And He wants everyone to know that this is really serious. Remember, that's just the within quotes. We mentioned that the reason why he didn't do and Allah knows best is that that because Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't allow him to do so. And so another benefit that we get from this, but hadith
is that those who say it is mandatory. They use this hadith to say that praying in the masjid is mandatory. The reason was it was because he said I would go with the regional now who who is amendment Hapa amendment hardtop. I would go to with a group of men
hotter with firewood to a people lie a shadow and a solid who do not come to the prayer. And so who are these people?
These people is some people might say, well, what if what if they're praying at home? And they're praying at home? You know, and congregation?
Well, the drummer here is not just the drummer itself, the drummer is Gemma in the masjid in the masjid. And so praying in the masjid and so that's why if a person were to pray at home, let's say they hear the alarm go off.
And they can hear the Imam because, you know, in Muslim countries, right, Muslim countries, can I pray following the imam in my house and count that as Juma?
Like, yeah, I can't count on as far as because I didn't go to the masjid. Even if we were to here.
Even we're even here. But if the lines came next and someplace you live close to the masjid, and the lions came right in front of your house, could you pray in your house
and count that as a Juma?
Let's say, hey, it's already the lions here in front of my door.
Let me just pray, stand up praying follow the map, can I am I allowed to do that?
You're allowed to do that if you have, you're not allowed to form your own line by yourself. So let's say you have a group of people, and the line has reached your masjid. And you can actually see people out your window. Like you can see people praying or you window and they're following, can I just pray at home? You can if you have your family like your your your brothers, and your you know your children. And then they form a line. But you're not allowed to form a line by yourself. So that's the same thing as if you're praying unless you
you know, sometimes it's so crowded that it reaches your hotel. And people are praying behind your hotel, can I just look down and pray because I can see them. And some people live close to the masjid to the point where they can see the number from the room. So when prayer starts you because the microphones are loud, can I follow that?
I'm not allowed to follow it unless the lines has reached my area. And I pray I'm not forming a line by myself.
Like because the prophets Allah Lumba prohibited us from forming alliances forming in line by ourselves. And
so yeah, there's another another another issue here.
Is it permissible for someone to burn, to use fire to punish someone,
the awesome, the default is that it's not permissible to use fire to, to punish anyone or anyone with or anything with fire, because that is something that is specifically for Allah subhanho wa taala.
But there are certain,
you know, we do have some,
you know, we do have some narrations from some of the companions. So based on this,
you know, because this is something that's very, very serious, that you should not be used, but there are certain
situations that, you know, we find in some among some of the actions of the companions and so forth. That, you know, the deeds are so
hideous, heinous, that it's that they used to use fire against them. And, and this was a, you know, to make sure that people don't
follow in that particular act also to do to follow that in that in that act.
there were some people who, you know, during the time of Abu Bakr de la
how will it happen that people
will note people practice
the acts of people who
this was so
this was like,
so bad to, to keep the people to teach the people a lesson. There
This fascia, this act
when it occurred during the time of Abu Bakr, Dylon, the Companions actually used fire to punish people like that.
Because so that's how serious it is. And now it's to the point where in our time, of course, there are even some Muslims that Oh, it's okay. Right? And so, you know, somebody committing Zina Yes. But somebody's doing so what the same,
you know, a man and a man and so forth. That's something that if during the time they companions,
they consider that to be so,
That then exception that was made for those people.
So that people would not even think about it again.
Think about it again. And so that's why,
for someone to say
that something like that is permissible. It's, it's beyond like, it's unimaginable. And so
but but the default, of course, is that, that you're not allowed to run a lot to use fire to harm or to punish or to do any, any of that.
And but you know, there are, there are exceptions in Sharla. Maybe another time, Michelle, will mentioned some mention mentioned some of them, but the default is it's not permissible. But some of the scholars have mentioned based on this hadith to show how serious something is. So you might say, well, this is prayer in the masjid. Yes, that's how serious it is. The Prophet Solomon didn't do that. But how serious do you think people just abandoning the Sunnah. For this, this is when we say sooner this is the way of the prophets of Allah.
And the ways of the people before the other scholars before us that they would always come they would not abandon this and they would always pray in the masjid. But we take it so lightly now that sometimes
we think it's it's not a big deal. So when you're able to come, you know come and when you're able to when you have the time, you know, like it's like sometimes it's difficult when you're at work, that's fine. You know, but if you're able to, and you can find a job also that allows you to be able to then of course, then by all means do so so inshallah anyway that but we'll read the next Hadith
and the next hadith is at least number 67
and hadith is from Abdullah, Nomar for the lawan, Houma kala kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
had a comb Imre to Eden, Masjid, for lamb of Allah young fella. Yes, I am now.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I'm sort of normally said, either Stephen had to come so we're speaking about going to the masjid.
But it's the obligatory mandatory for a poor woman to go or not. That's what we're going to cover right now. And that deed states. If your wife
asks permission from you to go to the masjid then don't prevent her. Then don't from but for her for Carly Vila Hypno Abdullah sobre la limonada Allah. He is, you know, one of the students of Abdullah of Noma, he says Wallahi
dilemna he said by Allah
let them their ohana.
And he said, My Allahu No, we're going to prevent him we're going to stop stop them from going. So So one of the one of the people that he said, you know, because why did he say that? Because he's like, You don't know the woman nowadays? I'm gonna, I'm not gonna let them go. And let them go to the masjid. And so, He the Lord no more, or the Lord turned towards him. And he
he started to yell at him. And he rebuked him for sub o sub and saggy and Mercenaire to Simba who missed the hook up. It looks turned towards him
and rebuked him in such a way that I never heard him say something like that before. Then never heard anyone. I never heard him speak to anyone like that before. Like Abdullah nama never spoke to anybody when this person said, The problem. I'm telling you the Prophet, some said don't let them go and use it. Don't Don't stop them.
And I'm going to stop them. He was very, very
angry, he was very angry. And, and he said
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I'm telling you that this is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
has said, and you say well Allah and Amnon Lanham now on the limb now open is a new year a new saying well lie we're going to prevent them like Suhana
so inshallah we'll we'll cover
and then another narration let him know EMA alongside your Allah do not prevent the female servants of Allah from going to the masjid from the house from going to the houses of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So here Sharla we're gonna move on to next week, we'll be speaking
women go to the masjid women are they allowed to go to the master because you have some areas undecideds
that don't even have a place for a woman and don't have a place for one. And in fact, the profit center lines and did have a place for them because he made a separate door for them. And the back of the masjid was the place for the woman to come. And those were to come would come but he would say that you pray praying and home is better if you want but don't if someone wants to come to the masjid to pray don't prevent the government from coming. And so
Charla will mentioned some of the other rulings related to woman going to the masjid. And how should they go to the masjid? You know, in what manner? Should they be? What station should they be in? Inshallah? We'll continue that next week and show next Wednesday. And we ask ALLAH SubhanA to teach us that which benefits and benefits from dialysis. And anyone have any questions?
Yes, there's no space.
This is where the scholars have mentioned that
if you come and you
the foot the line, the line in front of you is full? Should you tap another person to come? Because if you tap, you tap them, then they would they would you know you would make a four, you would make a you would do something that's that the Prophet Salam prevented. So don't you know, don't leave any space between you. So now, number one, you're making space in the line. And number two, you're bothering the other person also. So should you do it? Well, you shouldn't. So when should you should you stand by yourself? Yes. Because the prophets of Allah they have. So number one, he already said don't pray don't, you know don't
when when you make your own line, that means that there's still space and you're able to, but you don't join the line. But if you're forced to, you have no other option, then it's permissible. There are many considerations we have about, you know, people about sometimes a woman praying behind, she's by herself. She's by herself, we have some narrations from some of the compatible habia that they pay, we hand them in and there was nobody there except for her. Now, are we going to say no, you can pay by yourself during the men? No, then that would not be permissible for her. But because she's the only one that she can form a line by herself. And if you're the only one and the bottom
line is full, then it's okay to form a line by yourself. But you don't form a line by yourself if there's space in front of you. And so that's why
the stronger opinion in this matter is that if you come and the line is full, just form a line. So where do you form some people? I see some people start from the right side.
Some people start in the middle of the Masjid. Where do you start? You start right behind the EMA because that's the middle. Okay, so this message for example, some people I've seen some people start like they start right here because that's the middle of the message. They think it's the middle between that line. Now you start the middle, right behind the EMA. So that's where you start your line, the next person comes to the right and then that was the left, right left. And so you don't always go to the right why? Because the Prophet SAW Allah and ordered us to make the lines even. And make make the line balance also, meaning you shouldn't make one side only in the right
side only even though there are virtues of starting of course being on the right side of the first half. But in the right side but if you're starting from the be if you're coming into the masjid and there's no place for you in the line that you're in and start your own line you okay, it's okay to pray.
by yourself in sha Allah because it's you're forced to and it's you don't want to do something just because you're prohibited from doing something you don't do something else that's that causes another prohibition which is causing that light and Allah knows best
someone can advance the praying behind the email. Next
up, there's only two people
and there's no space for them
the space to go down divination should pray behind and next to the EMA. Yes. You know, doing you know, when the prophets of Allah I think my son was sick. And he came late. Right He came late, he prayed. But that's the Messenger of Allah Allah. So he's the man himself. So he's coming. And then he prayed, and to be in the front next to the prophets of Allah who was next to Abu Bakr, who work at backed up. But in when it comes to going next to the Imam, the companions of the prophets of Allah, and some started their stuff and the beginning, and they kept on making it. And those who say, you know, you should go next to the mom, you, you can go next to the Imam, if there's no more
space, like say, the masjid, you're praying, there's no more space. So it's so crowded, there's no more spaces. So that's why, when it's when it becomes so crowded, we have no more space, it becomes out of necessity, let's say if sometimes, you know, like, sometimes it's so crowded that we want to maximize the space we have. Okay. So, to the right of the moment to the left of the IMA, there's a lot of space. And there's no people are like there's no space in the back of the Masjid. So if you move forward, you have more people. So in this case, it would be permissible out of necessity. So some of the scholars have mentioned when that happens, then you know that in some way you can get in
front of, you know, play in front of the mom, but there's no space in the back. But if you go into the back, if you if you do that, and you go in front of everyone else, it's you causing another thing, you're causing a little more distraction for everybody else. Also, when you're going next to the mom, it's not out of necessity. It was out of necessity. And you know, that's not something that's the norm normally that we do.
And Allah knows best. Yes.
Yes, the first if anyone notices it, if you're praying behind the EMA, if the person, you just line up by yourself behind the EMA and if the Imam If you lie, somebody, somebody lines up to the right of the Imam. Right. And then so you have a couple of options. Let's say there's still space in the front. So you line up right next to the IMA so that the man will see and then a man moves up and then you go
and you're then you're there'll be two people. And during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you know, the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah is whenever like Abdullah now, but sometimes you would pray. And he would say in the wrong side, the Messenger of Allah, grab him, pull and push and decide to any movements during the prayer. That's to correct something that's in the prayer when this individual or Congress or a congregation, and that's something that's permissible. So if you needed to tap someone, because they don't know, but most of the time, if you'd like Allahu Akbar, and they realize it, then they scoot back. And sometimes they're in a position that they can't move.
Like somebody's a little cooler. So dude, are you going to sudo sudo, we're going to tap, he's gonna, like,
he's sitting down, you don't tap that person at all. You just sit down with them. And if you if you say Allahu Akbar right behind and they realize it, then they should move back. Or sometimes the Imam will move forward and you just join the second person. And so those are some of the options that you can go
join in the front.
It really depends on the situation.
And the circumstances if it's necessary, if it's out of necessity, you know, if you don't have any, any student should you should you stand next to them?
Or should not the default is that you don't really have to the mom was in the front, and you pray in the back. But if you do so at the beginning so that they realize that and then they then everybody corrects the position, and that's okay.
secondary email, so
go for Brubeck is it said that'd be the email
And then he still doesn't come in?
Yeah, if he doesn't come.
the thing is, in this case, you you go join them to let them know that there's another person, maybe he doesn't, maybe he doesn't know it. So if he's not moving backwards, then then what the might if you're the mom, in this case, what should you do? If somebody comes, and you know that there's another person behind you, and the person that right doesn't know what to do, he's not doing it, what you do is you push him,
the man pushes that person back, or you move forward. So because the Imam is the one who's in control here, and he knows, he pushes them back, they can do that he can push him back.
You can move as long as you're not like, you know, you're not making any movements that are that would make people think that you're not praying that how many steps you can you move if you take as much stuff as as necessary to. So it's, there's no like three steps, two steps. Some of the scholars say, one movement that you have to stop, don't make consistently is consecutive movements. That's all that's only you know, what they want, why they why they say that is because they don't want you to make movements that when people look at you, it looks like you're not praying. You know,
some people when they look at
yeah, there's, if they're not bothering other people than they should, as long as you can walk in front of other people. Why they're praying because that's not their sutra, the Sutra of the people as the Imam sutra. So other people, let's say, for example, you're on this side, right? You're coming from that side, and this side has some space over here, but you can't come through this door. So you go from here and you're walking in front of people. It's okay to walk in front of people if they're praying and congregation because the Imam sutra is a Sutra of the people.
And the last panelists, any other questions?
