Okay, go ahead.
We come to the next Heidi today tremendous honey for some of the dilemma of Islam say that the whole religion of Islam revolves around this particular belief. Anyone who studied the 40 hadith of an Imam and no we would have heard would have learned that the scholars of Islam had fit left between themselves as to this issue of the two Heidi that the whole religion revolves around and all the three Heidi thought before Heidi, the important thing is for the Muslim to understand that this particular Heidi has open for discussion today an explanation is one of the most important ideas from the Jomon educate him of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa it was sending them an inside if that
is tough upon Allah He meaning an Imam Bukhari and an Imam Muslim. Both of them have agreed that this hadith is authentic. And as we mentioned many times over the years during this time of fitting and shuba hat, if the Muslim hears that a hadith has been agreed upon by an Imam, Al Bukhari and Muslim, then he should have no doubt as to the authenticity of that Hadith. In fact, it has reached the highest level that a hadith can possibly be reached in the dunya. And for that reason, are a marvelous lamb gave a lot of service and commitment to those two books, with the book in particular lumen Mara Jan faema. De Cali, Usha Han, where the chef came and only focused on gathering a book in
which only the Hadith that Al Bukhari and Muslim agreed upon the authenticity of those Heidi so that's a very important book that should be in the library of each and every Muslim. Today's Hadith one is the hadith of veteran in this companion and Norman a bin Bashir, may Allah be pleased with him, and may Allah be pleased with his father. Both of them were from the inside. Both of them were from the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa, it was settler and Norman Bashir has a number of ahaadeeth and a number of mawatha for situations that are important during the lifetime of rasulillah. His son in law when he was said, he said that the Navy of Islam and Mustafa in which
taba and matar May Allah subhana wa Taala has peace and blessings be upon him he said very early the halau that things are halau and things that are halau clear. And the things that are haram are clear. And between the halaal and the Haram is the gray area. Not many people know about those issues, the gray area, the mush Tabby hat, most people don't know about. Is it halau is it Haram. So he went on to say someone loved what he was sending them. So anyone who avoids falling into that gray area. He has protected his Dean, and he has safeguarded his honor. And anyone who has fallen into that group
area, the gray area you don't know how haram it may be Hello. But it also may be Haram. So therefore you have to avoid it. If you avoid it, you will, in fact, you will effectively protect your deen. And your honor, if you fall into it, you fall into the Haram. And then he gave an example. He said, like the example of a ryyb example of
a shepherd who has some animals, that he goes close in the pasture of a king. So he has his animals, a bunch of sheep, goats, cows, camels, whatever. And he takes them out to pasture to eat, he comes to the pasture of a king.
And every single king, he says something lovely, it was seldom, he has his sacred land that nobody should be there, nobody should walk there. Nobody should have a picnic there. No one should allow the animals to graze in that pasture because it's the sanctuary of the king. Barely every king has a pasture. So the one who falls into the gray area is like the shepherd who allows his animals to graze in the pasture of the of the king are close to it. And then the animals get closer and closer and closer to the sanctuary of the king. And then they fall into it. He didn't mean for them to fall into it. He was trying to keep them away really, but it can't control the animals. So just by the
nature of the animal, they kept stretching, stretching out stretching out until eventually they fell into the sanctuary of the king. He said Verily, Allah has a sanctuary as well. Allah has that place where you shouldn't go. Allah has that place where it's not permissible for you to come close to it. And that sanctuary of Allah is those things that he made Haram. And then he mentioned another aspect that is connected to this hadith and you say, verily, inside of the body, there is a morsel of flesh. If that most of the flesh is solid, the whole body is going to be good, pure rectify. And if that muscle of flesh is fasci, that is no good, is dirty, is messed up, then the rest of the body is
going to be the same way. He said very early that most of the flesh is the heart. As we mentioned this Hadith, honey is a very important Hadith The Prophet said many things some a lot when he was sending them, just as we have in the Koran. Certain sources are more important than other sorts and certain ayat are more important than other ayat. And in fact, he has the greatest sort of look for an idea to courtesy is the greatest item the Quran, similar to that some of the kadem of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is more important more emphasis than other statements of Rasulullah sallallahu it was settled them and this is one of them. This is one of them. This is a Hadith of the
person in the stands in the practices it it will protect him or her from a lot of things that are happening right now right today right now right today, and our mistake in the street at the job at the University at home. If we understood this Hadith, and we implemented this hadith will protect ourselves from a lot of issues the hadith of a Norman Bashir, he began by saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the halaal is clear and the Haram is clear. So for Muslim, our religion is not like the religion of the
annual keytab where they make halau according to their desires, and they make haram according to the desires haram and halaal in our religion comes from the Quran and the Sunnah. It comes from a GMR consensus of Lauren Emma. It comes from LPs haram halau doesn't come from what you think what I think doesn't come from democracy doesn't come from what the majority say doesn't come from what the rich say is what a lot is messenger Allah subhanho wa Taala is established and then his messenger he said in a for an for an example, a Hallo la who Bay. Allah has made commerce trading, buying and selling a lot maybe halau. Hill at the comb behemoth tool and
Allah has made halau for you. Those animals that are the anon you can eat camels, you can eat cows and you can eat sheep and goats and all of that no one can come and say those things are halau haram because they're clearly Halla. Drinking
drinkin Zamzam drinking orange juice drinking Pepsi. All of those issues are how no one in his right mind is going to say. Drinking. Zamzam is haram is clear is begun, as the Hadith set clear, like the clarity of the Sun that's in the sky. No kedem very clear.
And the opposite of that he mentioned some love while he was sending him that the haraam is clear as well.
The ayah that we mentioned, what a hell Allahu
wa Hara mareeba Allah has made buying and selling and commerce halau that's halau for men for women, white black, rich, poor, educated, not educated live in Birmingham that outside of Birmingham is allowed, but he may Riba Haram. So the Quran came and made the currencies and gave the loss and say this thing is haraam. huruma on a common Mater to a demo da
Ma, La La Hebei may haraam for you is to eat the meat of animals that are dead. Or they eat the meat of animals that have blood in order to eat the meat of swine, or to eat the meat of animals that divination came from that thing Well, I took two left seletti harmala 11
don't kill someone who allowed me that haraam for you to kill that individual. So murder is haraam hora except in the places where the religion allow that you murder someone now was halau for you to be murdered as a result of LP sauce, but the I said don't kill the knifes that Allah has made Haram. So the halau is clear and the haraam is clear, did not eat said, what being a woman, a Morton wish Debbie hat, the chef in the book, he didn't bring back narration. He didn't bring it with a word is a mortal wish to be hacked. But the Messiah, he recited that one because it's also authentic, between the halal and haram are those issues that are ambiguous is the gray area. Not many people
know about the gray area. So that's an important word of warning that we have to have in our Islamic vocabulary moosh to be hacked. That's one of those words and fifth and in Islam, that the student of knowledge should know you don't have to be a big time student of knowledge. But this concept in this word should be understood the most to be had or those issues that the scholars had the life in the issue. There's the lil that can show is this way. So some people said hello. There's the little that says is that way. So some people said it's Haram. And it's hard. It's hard. You can't say over there, you're definitely wrong. And you can see over here, you're definitely wrong. And that's why
it's the machete behind. It's not clear. There's some Denizer between the scholars, there's de Lille, that makes you give the turret j to this side, there's delille that make you give the turret j to this side is better to stay away from the issue altogether. Look at it as being harassed and avoided, don't do it. Even if you consider the other is halau. You can say that that's what you think that the little is saying is better than stay from away from this area. That's one of the meanings of mush, Debbie hat. It also can mean which Tabby hat is good mean is ambiguous. You just don't know. For one reason or another. Like is a situation that is new to us right now. I got a call
as the man of my mistake from a person who used to be a man. And now that person is a woman. And they had a sex change. And they're living their lives as a woman now, and they want to know, can I come to the gym?
And if I come to the gym, where do I say? That's from the moosh Debbie hat.
If you sit down with the women, you're sitting with the women a person who used to be a man, if you sit down with the windward the if you set them with the with the with the men you're sitting with, you're putting them with a group of people who he believes they believe that they are a woman in their setting with the men.
So we can't let him do this. We can't let him do that. You sit in the office over there by yourself. You sit in the office, we have a microphone you can listen to it, but even that even that is going to make the person feel isolated ostracize going to make the person say what is this religion? So do we say to that person go and find some other people like you and open up your own Masjid. So this issue is from the mush Debbie had halau haraam he accepted Islam after that operation.
We're going to say that lifestyle is not permitted.
That operation is not permissible, but it is what it is the reality on the ground. Can you come to Juma? Can she come to Juma? What should we do? That's from the witch, Mr. behat. We don't know. It's that gray area. So we have to come up with something, don't let him do this. Don't let them do that you got to come up with something else. So then which the behind are those things that the DLL can show this, or the DLL can show that and there are a lot of examples of it. And the books affect, like many of the brothers who are reversed to this religion. A man and it's not just exclusive for the reverse, but a man could have before Ellis lamb had a baby out of wedlock and he had a baby
girl. He had a baby girl out of wedlock. That child that is born out of wedlock even if you're a Muslim, if a child is born out of wedlock, that is not your baby in this Deen is not the child of the shediac can inherit from the Father. That girl can't take the Father's name. That girl the father is not a macroom for her. It's been to Xena.
So been to Xena.
Now the issue that comes up in the books of fit days, since that child can take the Father's name. It doesn't inherit from the Father. The father's not a mom for that girl. Can the father marry her? Because if she's not from his daughters, the item the Koran is clear. huruma alaykum Maha Takuma binotto Maha to come around for you, your mothers, your daughters in your sisters. You're saying this is not as daughters from Xena. What makes the child the man's son or daughter is the Nika?
Nika if a person has a baby outside of wedlock, it's not as child. Okay, can you marry that girl? That's from the wish to be hacked? Don't do it. And the majority of the scholars said this is not permissible. The Jim hoard I want you guys I'm giving this to you as an example. I'm not saying in the first example, that the LBGT q x, y, z is okay, I'm not saying that, nor am I saying that this thing is permissible to marry his daughter from Xena. Those are the examples of what Mr. behat can mean it's not clear as to gray area. So that's the meaning of the moosh Tabby hat, as it relates to the issues that are ambiguous this hadith helps us to understand something really important in our
Deen and that is, number one. Anything that is not clear, then don't do it. Don't do it.
There's a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was asked, If a man touches his private part, does it break his will bow, he said it is a piece of you, it doesn't break your window, just like your ear is a piece of you. Your head is a piece of you and your arm is a piece of you. If you touch your stomach, it doesn't break your little boat.
But then there is another Hadith that he says anybody who touches his private party brokers will do let him make will do again.
So you had that authentic ID thing? You say? Yes, it doesn't break the rule. No, it doesn't. He has this other idea. And he says
that it breaks your window. So in this case, is the gray area because some people said this, some people said that is the gray area unless you have the ability to go with further step. And you can combine the two and work with both of them by saying, If you touch your private area with desires, you do it with shadow with desires. And you have a boy you touch it with desires, it breaks your will do. But if you touch it inadvertently, you're drying off, you touch it inadvertently it doesn't break your window. So you're dealing with both of the Hadeeth you're working with them. But without doing that a person may say I'm going to take the side that says it doesn't break your will do is
the gray area. So you have to avoid things when it is not clear. years ago when the scholars didn't know all of the harm of cigarette smoking. They said it was disliked A long time ago. But then when it became quite clear and quite apparent that his harm was serious. They said it was haram back then back then some of the scholars said is haram because they can see some of the harm not all of it. haram back then at the beginning when this was introduced to the community is something you should avoid.
Because you'll come yamo piano and when you come yamo Pm after falling into the thing that is ambiguous. If you find out your mo piano that this thing was halau and you did it you won't have a problem. But if you come yamo pm and you find out that this thing that was ambiguous as haraam, you stayed away from it so you don't have a problem. So if you avoid it either way, you won't have a problem you find that it was halau or haram Yama, piano, you won't have a problem.
Don't throw the dice don't gamble. And the issues of the wish Debbie had asked you guys right now. You're driving down the street and you go to a new city in Brooklyn, New York, or we don't have to go that far. Let's go to the shower. Or Islamabad. You go to one of those places and there is a street you don't know much about it is dark two o'clock in the morning 1230 at night. You don't know if they're criminals on that street highway robbers on that street while animals on that street you have no idea is that a street where it's common where people put bombs and blow people up? If someone told you a this wish to be hacked is from the wish to be had, we don't know anything can
happen. Everyone with his right mind is gonna say I'm not taking a chance I'm not going down that street. That's how you have to look at it.
That's how you have to look at the wish to be heard when they come to you. Should I get a a loan or student loan? Should I get this? Can I do that? If it's not clear, don't do it.
Don't do it. Save yourself. If you fall into that gray area, you have fallen into the haraam. You have fallen to the Haram and you compromise your deen and get rid of First thing first thing when the ambiguous issues confront you avoided avoided marriage whatever the case may be, you meet the girl you want to marry the girl you went through the whole process, but there is a shoot and that is what she divorced properly from her husband. It's not clear. She's saying one thing but we're hearing another thing and so forth and so on. And he's saying what don't do it until everything is clear until the halau becomes beigene
to the Haram becomes beggin you avoid it for the sake of your deen and for the sake of Your Honor. The other thing is the statement of the prophet in this as it relates to the mush Debbie had some love while he was sending them Sallam said laiya Allah Muhammad, Allah Allah moolah, Kathy Roman and as many of the people they don't know the gray area, and that's because the majority of the people don't know the religion. The majority of the people don't know how to make a stud Lau how to get the deal. Most of the people don't know if there are multiple deals and they seem to be conflicting. Most of the people don't know how to work with those deals. If an ayat of the Quran is appearing to
conflict with a Hadith of the authentic Sunnah, many of the people don't know how to harmonize. Which brings us to the third point and that is this idea is one of the ideas that show the virtues of the dilemma of Al Islam the marvelous lamp, because Eliza Joe has raised a man this religion and allows panel to Allah has made the name of this religion he made them to be the inheritors of the prophets and the messengers Salawat the way he was sent emmalin Jemaine, but Rama, who are Rashi, whom they know the ambiguous areas, listen to me.
Many of the drivers that have gone to Medina, and they came back to the west, sometimes when we start to go to the universities, especially in the West, Yale, Harvard, Cambridge, and these universities, you hear some of these people talking in the way in which they put the scholars down. And they say, the scholars are afraid of this, and the scholars are afraid of that. But I'm not afraid to go to
the scholars are afraid, because they don't think forwardly. No, but I think and I have forward thinking, anybody who talks like that you got to run away from that person. That's not the person you want to sit and take knowledge with. Because that individual doesn't understand this concept in Islam. Allah has raised up the scholars and that kadem of yours is putting them down. The person says, I'm the first one who did it, I came to this conclusion. Yep. But that's a clear proof to me. When you know that men had just set a fee and you know, some of these principles that came with came up with a long time ago, they will you'll be divinely protected like this issue. Avoid the gray
area. And I used to say all the time, beware of taking a position that you don't have a scholar in that position who preceded you, not that you just have a scholar, a scholar made a mistake. And he said that the mole it was okay. So the person says I have a man who proceed No, it doesn't mean that. It means you have a bona fide qualified competent scholar taking that position with delille with support
Don't you be the first one who arrived at that conclusion? If that were to happen you in trouble.
If someone came to you came to me and said, He's the one who said that he's the first one and the only one. I know without knowing his name, his father's name, we come from his background where he was he I know it's a problem.
Because not possible for anyone here to be the first one to arrive at an Islamic conclusion. Is that possible? Not possible is impossible, impossible. Not possible. So in regards to the virtues of Islam, the there are certain items, certain ahaadeeth that are very clear that we use all the time. This is one of those deals that show the virtues of the trilemma of Ellis Lang, leyendo, Mona, Kathy, Roman, and NASS. Many of the people don't know. But the Rossi hoonah film, they know, people's knowledge they know. And their geographical location doesn't have anything to do with the price of peanuts. A person can be a scholar living in Senegal, his name is met Lord, in Senegal, you
sit down with him, he never saw Birmingham in his life. But if you talk to him, and you tell him about the situation, because of his knowledge of the Quran, and the Sunnah, his knowledge of the history of Islam, his knowledge of
the language, and so forth and so on. He's going to develop an idea about what you talking about, and he's going to give a ruling based upon what you're saying is possible because he's never come to Birmingham, that he doesn't get the full picture is possible because he never came to Birmingham, that if you don't give them the full picture, he may not get it because you're not giving it all to him. But his ability to give a ruin in that thing is far greater than the ability of the regular people of Birmingham. Beware, beware 20 off this dial in this column from many from some of the brothers who graduated from in Medina and other places, Medina and then they came back to America or
to the UK. And they went to Yale, they went to Cambridge, and they went to Oxford and he went to these Ivy League schools. And they're saying though, right, um, I don't know.
No, it's not a nice position is not a correct position. But no bu sallallahu alayhi wa ala it was sending a mention in the Hadith fermented, fermented taka shuba had *a disturb bruh the Dini he were LD. Anyone who makes a taqwa and it did.
A taqwa and it means to avoid something. So a tough one means to avoid those things that will make a lot angry with you. elliptica you have a shield, and you're going to block the thing that the person is trying to hit you with. The companion said, Kalani, Taki be rasulillah he's sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, either she did tell her if the war became very hot, we used to get behind the nebby. And we used to have this car. He was our protector by last permission, showing how he was strong and brave and courageous. So anyone who avoids the gray area, two things happen he'll get to hustlers to hustlers first thing by avoiding it. He protects his Dean, because if you fall into the gray area,
if that's what your religion is, to fall into the gray area, then you're going to fall into the Haram by default. The Prophet sallallaahu it was sent him saw one of his grandsons, either Hudson or Hussein walking.
And he came upon some date, one date that was on the ground, and the grandson of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Marathi Allah, I know when to pick the date up a date.
He went to pick it up to eat it. When he picked it up. Rasulullah saw him and he said to him, by the get his attention and to let him know put that down, don't eat it. He said we have been prohibited from the outside of the people. We have been prohibited prohibited from the dirt of the people. The meaning of that is not from the dirt that's on the date. Now you can eat that date. The meaning of that is
that date may be from South Africa. And you're from El Beit Hasson Hussein and the people from Anglin bait. We can eat and accept anything from a Zakat and sadaqah that's not we can't do that. We don't do that. We can take a gift but we can't do that. So that is the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam avoiding the
gray area he doesn't know is this thing that it fell out of a basket that someone was bringing in for South Africa?
He didn't sit there and say, nah, he could have came up with a million reasons. I don't think so. We should eat it because a vital if we don't eat it, a sheep is going to come and a sheep is going to eat it. You could come up with a million reasons why, Oh, it's so insignificant. It's so simple. Now.
You're in Mecca, you're in Medina, you in the streets of Birmingham in this Masjid, if someone loses something in Mecca and Medina, the last items in Mecca, Medina, you can pick it up, the only thing you can do is pick it up to give it to someone to say this was law so that the necessary people will take care of it. Here in this semester, you find a nice pen, it's not your pen. Don't go and say, if it was someone's pen, they would have been here right now asking for it. If this person loses this pen, and it never gets back to him, it won't damage the quality of his life. I'm just going to keep it can do that.
You go to the supermarket over here, and you're shopping in Morrison's and you're going down the aisle and you checking out the grapes like that you're checking out the grapes, you shouldn't check out the grapes like that.
Because you don't know that they say that's okay. It could be in the culture of some people in some marketplaces in Africa. And some marketplaces in Nigeria. When you go to the date place or to the where they're selling food items like that. They would allow you to take one or two, they would allow you to take some of the pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds or whatever. And because they are out of their customers, okay. But do they let you do that Mrs. Owens? I don't know. Maybe they do. Maybe they don't. It's the gray area. So therefore Don't do it. Don't do it. As it relates to the headache, the one who avoids it. He protects his Deen. He won't fall into the harem, the way he will
fall into the harem. He was laxed and easy and negligent about the gray area. The gray area. When you go to people's homes, there's the gray area. There's a gray area in the people's house.
Many gray areas. If you don't know don't sit there. If you don't know don't open up the door. We're waiting for the brother and we need to get out someone has to go to the toilet, a Croma. But we don't know what's on that other side of the door. We have to not, don't just open up the door and see what's going on.
as relates to this Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet gave and illustrated something that the Arabs of this community could comprehend. And something that we can comprehend as well, which goes to show he was the greatest Muslim, the greatest teacher, he would teach with given examples.
So he gave us a method that his muscles gave us an example. He said, The one who falls into the gray area is like the shepherd who
is grazing his sheep in this area where everybody is the community grazing land right here, everybody and anybody.
But quite naturally, you cannot, you cannot keep every sheep in this area, they're going to wander off and the closer closer they get to Kings, they're going to fall into it. Once he falls into the king's property sanctuary, you in trouble, the king is going to keep that sheep and you're going to get in trouble may lose all your sheep go to prison.
And that's what happens when you fall into the gray area. And that's the meaning of the Hadeeth. If you're laxed with the gray area, you'll eventually start falling into the Haram the mahatama law that is His sanctuary those things that are haraam. So you have to avoid it altogether. Again, that was an example of the nibi some A lot of it was sending them given the ductable m file. This one is one of the Hadith that the scholars always brought when they wrote about and warra and Zhu. Li Dr. de la out is a person
taking precautions. Now you have to understand this you can't be extreme. This Hadith is not telling you to make everything haram I told you there are things that are halau that are clear. You can say I'm not doing that thing because the gray area I'm not going to drink Mountain Dew I'm not going to drink Pepsi I'm not going to drink Coca Cola and that's because the Jewish people they make that so I got a boycott them is haram we can't drink that. A What are you talking about? Even if Jewish people made that are the Zionist and even if Zionists were the ones who produce that. Who were you to make it haraam where where does it come from?
You can make things haram on people. You can't do it. So you can
Be extreme and make halau things haram and say, No, I'm having water I'm being aware. I'm being careful can do that.
As it relates to the gray area, though, you have to be careful. So those scholars and imams will care, even Jura all of them brought this Hadith, or chapter about this Hadith, because this is one of the Hadith that will help the one who was exiled, you know, a long time ago, they were not known as people of a soul worth or Sufi, they wasn't known as that. They were known as people who had Zulu people have word, it's an Islamic concept at the soul worth is not an Islamic concept and the way it has become right now. It is an innovation with what's going on the way is being done. But back then this was a part of what it was to be a Muslim that you have to struggle to watch what you say not to
overtalk, watch what you eat, don't overeat don't oversleep. I told you last week, I think it was an Imam a share three Rahmatullahi to Allah, Allah, he said, I accompany the people of Sofia, I went with them at one time. And I didn't benefit them nothing. I got no benefit from them, except one thing. And that is the statement. The time is like a sword. If you don't take care of it, or the cut, you have an American get no benefit from them. Same way with the people from Jamaat to believe you can be with Jamaat oblique for 10 years, and your knowledge of of Islam is going to be reflective of an individual who's been with Jamaat oblique for 10 years, and that you're not going
to know much about your religion. Does that mean they're in the Hellfire?
Does that mean that I'm saying there's no benefit that those people gave no solve our law before they knew their reality used to praise your mom and dad.
But when it became apparent and clear, it said, don't go because the harm is greater than the evil what's the harm, forming into innovations, not knowing your religion, big problem.
The nebby Salah love what he was sending? I want to ask this question after mentioning this about the halau on the Haram in the gray area and the sheep, the sheep fallen into the king's sanctuary. He said, after all of that, verily, in the body, there is a morsel of flesh. If it is good, the rest of the body will be good. If it's bad, the rest of the body will be bad. Why did the Prophet mentioned the heart here? So a lot he was sending us the connection of the heart to what was mentioned in the Hadith. You know, what's your name? My brother?
You guys was fasting today,
by the way is fasting today. You look like you have your thinking cap on? What's the connection between the Hadees halau. Clear haram clear the great area, and the one who saves himself from this gray area, save this Deen save this honor. Because if he falls into the gray area that people are going to talk about them. The gray area is there's a red light district.
The gray area is is a red light district there's a place where you get we get drugs, the criminals hang out. We always seen him there always. We don't ever see him drinking doing drugs. We don't ever see him doing any we don't see that. We don't see that at all. But the fact that he's there all the time is going to make people say oh, this is from the shuba heart is always what's going on. So the people will develop those ideas. Why did they be mentioned the heart some of the law what he was saying them after mentioning all these things, what do you think?
as close as close enter
because as the Hadeeth Sara center,
verily inside of the body, there is a morsel of flesh, if it is good, the rest of the body will be good. His eyes his hearing his desires, where his feet go, and where its feet don't go, what his hand touches and what his hand doesn't doesn't touch. What is lisanne says and what is he saying doesn't say?
The Prophet says some of the law what he was saying about the heart. Every day, the son of Adam wakes up his body part say to his heart and his tongue. fella his body parts say to his tongue. Fiala feola the way you go is going to determine the way we go. How you act today is going to determine how my whole day went. So if you're watching what you're saying and you have
Where are you being careful, you take it easy, then your hands, everything else is going to follow suit. And the heart is in charge of all of that. So if a person has a good heart, the good heart is going to make it easy for him to say, Now, I'm not I'm not eating that date. Am I going to eat that day? Even if I'm hungry? Not I'm not going to do this, I'm not going to do that. Because it's not clear to me. I don't know how haraam. I don't know I'm not comfortable with it. So I'm not going to do it. And then you want to make yourself a lighthouse. And as we said already, if that mortal flesh is solid, solid, then his whole body will be solid. If that muscle flesh is fasci, that no good, the
whole body is going to be a problem. So that goes to show us in this Heidi, to the different types of hearts in Ellis land, there are many, many hearts in Ellis land, many, many, many, some good, some bad. One heart is the heart that is solid, that you have a heart that is solid, as good as pure.
Another heart This idea is the heart that's facet, the one who has the silent heart, he'll avoid should kill coughing and innovation, Viva NEMA. And if you make some mistakes, you'll make Toba Illa the heart that's facet he doesn't have the ability to do that. He wants to be like the fly, who always is going to land on the dirty stinking things that smell bad they're no good they they they they themselves a facet from the pollute in the Quran is what Allahu taala said for you to be him Murat fuzz Abdullah Malabo motto is the heart that sick so sick, this is sick heart. Right here in Birmingham, 21 year old kid in Birmingham the other day, it's going to get a lot of time a little
island. What did he do? What did he do?
He went inside of this funeral home and have relationships with a dead body. He's gonna go to jail. That's a heart that's married is sick. So what the Muslim has to do is he has to avoid that type of a and there are many follow, there is the heart that is my in. As Allahu taala mentioned Allah be declared law, he touched my Indian Polo. But because of the decline of alarm with the decline of Allah, the heart becomes tranquil. He has problems he has issues. But because he's connected to ally visa coral is making saliva leave them like as at work. Tomorrow is the Battle of better tomorrow, some of us going die.
And our children are going to be orphans, and our wives are going to be widows. But the companions are the warm ally I name had hearts that will move to my inner So what happened? He went to sleep.
They went to sleep, they were out. They were not worrying about what's going to happen tomorrow. And some of you guys who are studying for your exams, if you're still studying for them before the exam it can't sleep.
Those companions went asleep and tomorrow we're going to engage the enemy. So there are many, many, many, many, many, many follow the heart that is why Jill the one that is fearful of Allah Mina Lavina Eva Bukit Allahu wa je let polu boom. Verily, the true believers are those people who win allies mentioned yahia tequila. Yeah, he stopped you do too angry don't do that tequila. His heart becomes fearful of the mentioning of ally reading the poor and so forth. Swan. This shows us the two types of hearts, the one that is solid, pure, and the one that is facet and there are many many other hearts. Then the BU sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sallam used to as our mother I said
his main door I will say a lahoma local labor local lube fat bit. Beata Dean UK
Oh, the one who turns the hearts established my heart on your dean Give me that established my heart on the dean. And there are many many many a hadith where the door is telling us ask Allah tala for heart that is fearful of him bulman Yasha a heart that is fearful of Allah because if a person doesn't have that heart, he can do anything. He could punch his mother in his face in her face. pushed the father down the stairs, curses sweat, the mother and father just have a constant situation where they disrespecting their parents.
Although that's a serious issue, just that alone, don't mention anything else. But we can mention should go for innovation, all of those things, making the the the, the, the arrow making the
the urn of the Muslim halau
I don't like you, I just say anything, whatever, I can accuse you of anything. And I don't care that I don't have any proof accuse you with homosexuality with Xena with adultery, I can accuse you of stealing anything I can say anything that comes out of my mouth, because that heart that is like that would allow it. Whereas if the person had a heart of common sense, that heart is going to help him to navigate and to take make decisions. Should I say it? Should I do it? Should I say Should I not do it? What's the benefit of it? If I send this thing out? Should I not send it out? When am I going and so forth and so on. So this is the HUD effect when you have a Norman even Bashir, radi
Allahu and hoonah. Concerning the statement of the nebby son, the loved one he was sending them, I would advise you brothers, go back into the YouTube into the YouTube or the Google and get more in depth knowledge about this Heidi gray scholar of Islam and Imam, Eva Raja, and humbly he explained the Hadith that an amendment no we put in his book. And this is one of those headings that no we put in this book. You go back and you put in the Google, what did Eben rajib say about this hadith his explanation? There's a lot of information. This is a hadith that no one can afford to be ignorant about and sleeping on it. You have to be woke, Cognizant, aware about the meaning of this hadith and
its modern law light and what it goes to. Which brings me to the last issue inshallah, before we take any questions about today's Hadith. last issue that when he was when I was asked about today's Heidi,
a person said that he does it, he works for it. He does it as a profession. And in order to do his job, he has to deal with Oracle. I heard of Oracle before, but I don't know what it is. I just know it has something to do with computers. I don't know exactly what it is Oracle. Is it like Google or something? I don't know. But essentially is the word Oracle is like something that non Muslims used to tell the future.
Quraysh people in Africa right now now Muslims go to the Oracle to ask the Oracle about Should I get married? Should I travel? Should I open up the business? And there are different things that they do? Obviously, the Oracle won't talk back unless the Oracle is a human being working with the Jin Oracle or a CLA E. So because of that name? Is it from the shuba hat for him to work at a job where they use Oracle?
No, man, it's not from the shuba heart that he is not from the shuba heart. You have to use it as in your job is a word that is Gold's against our religion and so forth and so on. People came up with that word, maybe they were saying the Oracle knows everything. So this particular this particular
whatever it is, we're saying, this will give you everything you need to know. But because they named it and you need it for your job can make things hard on yourself like that. There's a cake there is a cake called Devil's food cake. Anybody ever heard that cake before?
They don't make that cake in the UK. It's pretty nice cake Devil's food cake. Because it's called Devil's food cake. We make it haram for someone gave it that name. Maybe they gave it that name because you're going to eat too much of it. You have to watch your weight is rich. It's so fun. So they call it that. But because of the name does the cake become around. Now, the folks that we use today, folks, the folks that we use to eat I know most of you eat with your hands, but those of us who eat without forks because we were born here, we grew up in the West. Some of the people have the opinion that that fork that fork came from the devil himself, you know the pitchfork. So he came up
with that and people use this fork, they like the shell thing. So we're gonna say you can't use forks because they came from not gonna say stuff like that.
Don't stretch out things and make things haram and halau based upon just, you know, issues like that in medicine. They used to have this thing where doctors would take an oath, they call it the Hippocratic Oath with a doctor was swear and take an oath to the gods of the Greeks, the gods of medicine. I take an oath to you gods that
I'm going to be ethical, I'm going to be honest, I'm going to stick to the rules and regulations of medicine, and I'm going to be a true doctor.
So they were doing that in Europe, in America, they used to take that oath. You don't have to do that anymore. But they used to do that. So because that's in the medical field, you're going to tell Muslims, you can't be a doctor. Because the Hippocratic oath, the origin of it is no.
And it's not for us, you and me to come in issues like this, put our feet in the arena and start giving fatawa because we get one side of the equation or it makes me feel a particular way. So I don't like what's going on in Saudi Arabia. Another situation, what we're seeing going on in Saudi Arabia is madness. Saudi Arabia always had drama. Saudi Arabia is not tantamount an equal to send a fear everything Saudi Arabia know who said that.
But now what's going on is madness. Madness. I saw some girl jump up on the guy and put a legs around him all this madness, guy drinking vodka, all of this.
But because of that madness, I'm going to come and say, Hey, you shouldn't go to Hajj. You shouldn't go to Ramadan. We have to boycott them. Hey, hey, we
don't you know what the line is, Mr. says is mentioned said about hygiene.
And you come in because of what they don't know. halau and Haram is not like that. Allowing Iran is predicated based upon principles de Lille, how do you get this state law? How and so forth and so on.
Okay, well, a few minutes, seven minutes shala for q&a as it relates to today's dose for the advocating.

So when they get in an accident, and their body is harmed, you can't do anything to their body, no autopsy No, nothing, no anything. So as a result of that, it's not for you this that that me to give it to us in this issue. That's why the scholars have laughed about it.
But many of the Redeemer today have the opinion that this is something that is permissible, but there are a number of them I will say this is not permissible in the deen of allies and allies Island. Any more questions about today's does any more questions for the
Say it again?
Can you apply this Heidi for car insurance? Now you can apply it clearly for car insurance from the beginning of the Hadith. And the beginning it said that the halaal is clear and the haraam is clear. And car insurance is clearly haraam. Clearly, well that kulu and Wilder container comm bill Barton, don't don't devour your monies between yourselves with false hood can do that. And when you pay car insurance, there's a person who never had an accident three, four or five years and he's paying that car insurance monthly or yearly. He's paying it and they take it as money and he never got into any drama never had any problem. The ad hoc which right does they have? Do they have take his money. So
car insurance is haram. As for is it? Is it the gray area? No, it's not the gray area.
So the first part about eath is clear is connected. Car Insurance is haram. And then this hadith doesn't have anything else to do with car insurance. Now the issue of compulsion comes into the picture. You don't have that car insurance and you get into an accident. Something happens. The Popo stop you, and you don't have that car insurance. Now you're going to be in trouble. So now I'm going to get car insurance because I'm compelled has nothing to do with this Howdy. I'm compelled on force. So you're going to get the car insurance in that case will allow any more questions and whining, you got to put your hand up because I could barely see how he thought he saw.
Everybody here don't eat Big Macs.
Everybody here don't eat Big Macs.
Yeah, that's one of the issues that are
some of the major scholars contemporary scholars of our time. Well, the opinion you can eat this stuff. Some scholars of our contemporary time should have been a mean was of the opinion you can eat that stuff. You need the meat from Morrison's in these places like that. You have that pinion because they are and Rokita even if Chinese man owns the McDonald's or whatever, the ruling of the country, the lobby is the keytab and Rokita and then we have the people on the other side who say no, you can eat that meat right there and Rokita but then slowly the way Andrew keytab slaughtered in the past, and the way that they're slaughtering the meat is not halau and it's not correct. So
they have that little they have their delivery. It's better for you to do what, leave it all together. And then you add on to that we're in Birmingham and we're in Birmingham, hello is all over the place.
Granted, everybody's burger doesn't taste like McDonald's but McDonald's not the best burger. It's not the best burger. And Liverpool we have a joint called Archie's you guys heard Archie's or Jesus in Manchester and Liverpool and that burger blow your socks off? Much better than McDonald's. So you're in Birmingham leaving, you're around people who they will party and get high and drink and come out of the club, then that's for halau which shows you how much the people Birmingham one halau.
don't pray, no, he died. Just everything getting high. But when they come out, say I want hello and go into McDonald's. So you're dealing with that kind of mentality. So if you don't have to put yourself in that situation, don't put yourself in that situation. But if you're in a place like Peoria, Illinois, where you have to travel all the way to Chicago, three hours to get your halau meat. So you have to go all the way to Chicago to get your hell out and then come back three hours, three hours to get halau me you don't want to do that. And you don't want to be a vegan. You don't want to be a vegetarian. You don't want to eat fish all the time. You say okay, now that there's
this ruling that's here that's going to make my life easy and so forth. So on, I'm going to eat it. But in these places, London, Birmingham, Manchester, I think it should be avoided. But if someone
bust out a Big Mac or Whopper he busted it out. When I'm not going to I'm not going to chew him on anything. Any more questions? acquainting that from the
I don't know much about gelatine man, I don't know much about gelatine. I don't know. But from what I do know, some gelatin has some pork in it. So it's like gray area, but I really haven't really researched that issue to talk confidently confidently about a lot. Any more questions? All right, we're gonna deal with these last three questions and call it a day.
how should we destroy the books of innovation?
Burnham, Burnham, Burnham. The companions are the one why I named him they took the four irons that had different written scripts, and they gathered them together other than the most half of men and they kept that one and all other versions of the Quran, they got them and they burnt them. So you burn them. There's nothing wrong with that inshallah, or you can keep them in order to have them as references. Just make sure no one has access to those books. No one has access to those books.
Your family? No, this is the corner of the books. This is the corner of innovation, these books here, I don't believe in these books, I don't follow these books. I die and you guys get a hold of these books, you start reading these books and you go astray. I'm making it clear. I'm free from you. These are just references to know what these people are saying. So that's how you get rid of those books. There was another one that fell behind you, man, there was another paper that fell.
This person is saying if someone is a revert, and his parents had them in wedlock, does these still apply for them after they revert? If a person was born from a nigga, then they're not even Xena. They're able nikka been to nikka that legislation in Ellis land, it hits you. You're a person who is not a bastard, you're not a bastard, someone who's fatherless you don't know who your father is? No, you're a person who is illegal child boy or girl slamming knowledge is even the marriages of the non Muslim. So if a man in substance, lamb, a woman accepts Islam, the husband or the wife, we're not going to just break them up just like that. We're going to give the man some time to come to the
religion. We're going to give her husband in Jamia before slam we're going to give him some time to come to this religion before she gets married off to someone else.
We're going to give him some time because Islam acknowledges and takes in consideration that nikka last question here This person says action is small. What does it mean to be heavy on the people
being heavy on the people can mean a lot of things. There was a chef in Mecca chef Adam,
Mohammed, a UB from the realm of Al Hadi that a lot of work in Hadeeth is really sick right now. Very, very, very, very, very, very, very sick man like him, she fat, being heavy on him is going to visit him and staying there for a long time. staying there for 20 3040 minutes and then asking them halau haram questions. Just going give them love, make dua and roll out.
That's that just to share Has anybody who's sick. Being heavy on the people is someone dies from an old lady from one of our messages, one of our elders, he dies. Don't come and expect them to feed you for three days.
That's heavy on people. I lost my father, my uncle, my brother, my mother, I lost them. And I gotta feed all you cats for three days now.
Don't call me stingy. But I'm dealing with the death of my relative. Now I gotta deal with feeding all of you. And also finding the house. The other half to live in.
As tech reefer and being heavy on the people, making things haraam that are not haraam judging the people in the way where you're being rough and tough. The profit was a gentleman solo law while he was sending them. He was a gentleman, and I think everybody knows that not gentle to the degree where you break, will you will you compromise your religion where someone asks you the truth, and you can say, the heart is the way of the self, you can't say that.
And by saying it, you think you're being heavy on the people? No. Stopping innovation, you'd be in heaven? No, you stopped innovation in the way that is bet. So being heavy on the people. It means a lot of things. It means a lot of things. Last question here, actually is not the last one. How do we deal with the gray area? as say, what does this say right here? Right?
All right, what's the long muster long?
If a man and a woman got married, but they got married civilly, two Muslims got married civilly, you know, with the city hall with the non Muslims. And that marriage, although it counts for reasons here, to bring your wife or to get certain rights accounts with these people in Islam is not against that. But you're not considered to be married to that person if that's all you do. You have to get married in Ellis lamb, to be able to consummate that marriage to be able to be by yourselves together. Allow me to the Quran, will then lend the idea when knowledge and a little caffeine in minima sebelah we
haven't given the non Muslims a way over the believers. We haven't given the non Muslims a way over the believers, the legislation is not honest like that, you can do something like that. They are only to themselves. And we're all here for ourselves. So you got to get married. But at first he did this out of ignorance. And this happens in America all the time, people were with the Nation of Islam, and they are now Muslims. They became real Muslims, but a little bit of knowledge, a little bit of knowledge to the degree, if they have a janazah if they have a janessa Salah for a dead person from their community, they'll invite the non Muslims to get in the line for the janazah. And
if you say you can do that, they will be upset with you because they're still very far behind. And I have to say to people who are listening to me, we have to do something about continuously engaging them in Tao, especially those of us who are African Americans, those are our people. Those are my people, we have to elevate the knowledge as opposed to just their this their that mcse No, we got to get these people down. So as it relates to this issue, that's all I mentioned to say. You have to get married in Ellis lamb you young brothers sisters, in order to consummate and to be alone, if you can marry with the non Muslims. Okay? You did that for political person purposes and reasons want to
get your visa does that that's cool. Now how long but you're not married. In Islam, you can't travel without you can constantly so forth, so on. As for the other details of this, I'm not gonna answer that here, that that person bring that specific situation to me, so that we can deal with it, and then we'll deal with it. But hypothetical or things? I don't know all of those details. I'm not going to answer something like that. Also, to divorce. Just like Marian, you have to divorce in Ellis lamb you are divorce.
And then she starts her a debt. You don't go to the lawyer into the city hall or whatever and say, I want to divorce my wife. And then she starts the divorce process. Now. If you went through those people, you got the divorce like that. Okay? That's for politics, you're, you're doing it, no problem. It's okay. You could do that. You want to protect yourself, want to safeguard your monies, whatever you do that. But she's still your wife, until you take two witnesses from this religion to take two witnesses from this religion.
Yeah, but Oh, the little one. What does it say?
Oh, how do you deal with the gray area as a lay person, every lay person comes across situations that you don't need a lot of knowledge to know this is a test.
This is a test. Your boy your friend, he grabs you and says hey,
we need you to be a witness. Come on, you'd like to be witness and you go to the house. And when you get to the house, you find that there's a brand new Muslim who's going to get married, and the one who's going to conduct the Nika is a person who you know, is a dubious individual. He is dubious.
He like he is
he is going to conduct it. And then you look at the situation. His brother is 20 years old, he is revert me I'm only 18 and I'm the witness. You gotta say man as gray all day.
You have to say this is gray all day.
Black and White mixed together makes great halau haraam. This is great. You don't have to be a scholar to sit down and say, Now, I'm gonna give this one a miss. And there are many situations like that. So you don't have to be at a rock have rocket be a rocket scientist, to know this is a gray area sometimes is requiring knowledge. But for the most part, a lot doesn't. A lot does not all the time it doesn't burden you beyond your scope. If the situation is bigger than you and you can't identify as the gray area. You're not responsible. But Allah will put you to trials and tests according to your ability. And we'll have the ability to know the gray area next week in sha Allah
