anyone who comes to green lane on Wednesday at this time,
going to be confronted with a lot of traffic, a lot of cars that are parked outside of the mischief because on Wednesday, there is a lot of activity going on in the masjid when handling a lot of people teaching educating the community and elevating the awareness about the deen.
We have a class in the basement. And we have the class up here. We have the mother SF for the youngsters. And we asked allies with Jelena to put that in the skills of the good deeds of the administration of greenlink.
Along those lines, I want to make mention of something that came to my attention about the presence of the shale, bubble suhaib
rahula huhtala, who's now teaching here at greenlink.
Do my students, you brothers who are here, maybe for the first time those of you who are hearing me over the Internet, and you're here in Birmingham, or you come to Birmingham for something and you're here on the day or the night that he's teaching, I advise you brothers and sisters to take from Apple suhaib have hit a low Tyler is from the most knowledgeable people in this country analyze his Hasib and he has some unique characteristics that other people here who are giving Dawa, don't share with him.
And from the premier Pinnacle important characteristics is that he is an empty dad for us an extension of the madrasa of an Imam LL Bean, Danny rattler to LA he, tada la
demand and Danny lived in Jordan.
And I will suhaib is from Jordan. So he was blessed to have taken from the knowledge of the madrasa of Eman
Also, from the premium students of Eman ln Benny Rahmatullahi LA. from them I will share the alarm the Maha death FLV Abu al Harith
Ibn Abdul Hamid, Hassan Al halabi, affetto Allahu Tada.
And as well as Chef
bayda mature Hassan al Sandman huffy the hula, and other than those two.
So, I would like to repeat, and I would like to reiterate and encourage all of you brothers and sisters to make it your business. When he's given his class, whenever he's teaching here, try to attend. I believe it's a power move in terms of the administration of green lane making the choice out of all the people that could have brought here to deliver some lectures, they chose that individual.
And we talked last week about the miscibility of testing people with other people and we want about I love Hulu, and since I've been teaching you guys giving Dawa here, my call has always been Abraham's smile, all of you guys, that we respect personalities, we respect personalities. But we hold on to principles, we hold on to principles. So we don't go overboard in a chef Abu sohaib other than him a showerhead. If there were someone here in the country of United Kingdom Britain, who I would have said, if you want to test people then tested by Abu suhaib
but I can he had he had, I'm not gonna say something like that.
I'm not gonna say something like that, because as I mentioned to you brothers, and
Sisters in their last class when it comes to the empty handed last test and people with other people we're going to test them with removes symbols of the sooner hi hi hi hi, personalities, not the personalities that any I'm a backer and z brings up if you want to test the people of Canada and then test them with troit if you want to test the people of the UK then test them with SP. If you want to test the people in North New Jersey, then text as text, test them with mesh to the Rama. That's a joke. And it's insanity.
If I were to say to the people, you want to test people here in the UK, then test them with Abu suhaib. But I'm not going to say that. I'm going to say as I mentioned to you what the chef and the chef, the mahad different Medina said a chef Abdullah Merson alibag Rahmatullahi la he would not be allowed and who were happy the hula huhtala was a de hula.
Shut up the nursing is from the key Bara lemma for this material. And he took the position we shouldn't test people because he knows about the fitness and the drama that it has created. He said we shouldn't do this. He said and if and if we were to do it, then we should do it with the likes of a shaker bass rock not to lie, ie not the likes of everybody why like or who he likes, uh, who he likes. People who, again, as I mentioned, don't really have a lot of knowledge of Ellis land, have some knowledge. So
I want to encourage you, brothers, to hold on to him and don't just attend his class and sit there and listen. But the issues that you have the questions that you have, prepare those questions and hold him and ask him about your issues. don't overwhelm him.
don't overwhelm him, but it's a golden opportunity. After that inshallah as regional our agency has how to you brothers today, new sisters today is not going to be from the book a Shema in, but it's going to be about another issue altogether.
And that is the issue of the importance of beautifying your prayer. And a person can beautify his prayer by doing many, many things. The authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu and he was sending them and said in Aloha, a Haku xavion Allahu Allah has the most right, that you beautify yourself for him. So if you want to go to get a job, if you go to the family of the girl who you want to marry, if you go to a minima to Nakita tomika you're going to represent and you're going to go in your nice clothes on the day of an Juma you're going to represent because Allah has more right than anybody else, that you beautify yourself.
Allah mentioned God Benny Adam, who Zina Takuma in the Cooney Masjid in Austin of Adam, where your beautiful clothes when you go to the masjid. This is actually talking about cover up your hour. That's what the ICT is really talking about. But nonetheless, the general message of the Iet implies and it could be understood that you should wear nice things when you come to the prayer. So there are many things that you can do to beautify your Salah. From the things that beautifies a person's Salah is taking the sutra taking the sutra I see some people in the audience have never seen before. I was told that we have some new Muslims here as well. Prophet Mohammed Salah Allah what he was sent
him said about the prayer in a one minute Hi, Sybil abdomen, Amalia mukhiya masala, very first thing that I was going to ask you about your mo pm is your prayer. So it goes to show the importance of your prayer, you have to read about it, you have to learn about it, you have to get a book. And you got to get around people. And we have to learn continuously about what to do in the prayer and what not to do. Because there are many things that we should be doing, and many other things that we should not be doing. Sometimes if you neglect those things, it doesn't mean that you have prayers rendered null and void and it doesn't count. But you won't get the maximum reward of the prayer
because you're not doing certain things that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam commanded you to do, or you're doing things that he told you not to do.
So one of the things that he commanded us to do, and he prohibited us from leaving them alone is to take a sutra and a suture is that thing that the prayer puts in front of him to prevent other people from walking
between him and his soutra it can be a wall. It could be a human being, it could be a chair, it can be a pillar. It could be one of those brown things that you see back there. It could be one of these stands that they put the khorana at, they put the core on. And it could be a microphone, it could be a stick, it can be an animal, anything that's going to be stationary so that when people see you praying in front of that thing, then they know they have to respect that distance because that's your distance between you and Allah. not permissible for any Benny Adam. To come between you in that distance. It is your place and only your place. No one else.
Up to Labine months old he mentioned Rama to ye to Allah Allah He or Baron min Lj set for things are from Lj fat. lgfl means when you have a problem with someone, you and your mother, you and your father, you and your wife, you and your friend, there's some beef some drama that exists between the two of you and you're apart. You're not talking you're not communicating your split. He said four things are from Lj fat, the first one he mentioned and you Sally or Roger in a race sutra, 10 for a man to pray to other than a sutra, a man shouldn't pray, doesn't a suture if he does, that's from a GIF at the other three things that he mentioned, is for him to urinate when he's standing up. He
doesn't have a reason to do that. It's not from the Edit of Ellis lab. It's not from the sooner Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam stood up to urinate. But there was a reason why he did that. So if you have a reason, then no problem. But if you don't have a reason, you should always sit down. When you urinate, a crummock Mullah, he said also, the third thing is for a person to hear the event and he doesn't go to the masjid, that's from Elijah fat. And the fourth and final thing is to wipe his forehead. The meaning of wiping his forehead is after the prayer after the prayer, the Sabbath, they used to dislike if you got dirt on your forehead to wipe your forehead until you got up and you
went away. And that's because Prophet Mohammed Salah law when he was sent him in the Hadith, about labor to the other. He prayed with the people that salata will fetcher and it had rained all night, and the water from the rain seep through the ceiling. So when he made such that he developed on his forehead, the mark of the team of the mud, and he got up and he left it on his head Salalah while he was sitting there, so I'm delighted to be Massoud, and people from the sunlight for the pinion. If you get dirt on your forehead, as a result of praying, don't wipe it away until you get up and you go away you get up from the prayer and you give sometimes you go away then wipe it so abdulai
meaningless old rhodiola and we mentioned that not praying towards something to give you that hop between you and a lot the sutra it is a type of fat and it should be
avoided. As for the hadith of taking the sutra, there are many meaning. He says a lot what he was saying them in what was collected by Imam Muslim and the authority of Abdullah ibn Ahmad radi Allahu
LA to sell the Illa illa superettan when I thought I had a new Maru benei a day for an Abba fell to cartel who for in America who perine
he said do not prohibition. He said do not pray except towards a sutra. And don't let anyone walk in front of you and your sutra and if someone insists that he tries to walk in front of you and in front of your sutra, then you should stop him.
So that is a hadith that prohibits another Hadith and the meaning is Hadith that commands. Abu sorry that hodari radi Allahu anhu was collected by the mama Buddha Would you say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either son
fell yourself Salli ala sutra tin when I get the new Maru Bane aha what beno
for an Abba value cartel, who for in no shape and he said if any of you prays, then you must pray towards a sutra. Don't let anyone walk between you in the sutra and if someone tries if someone really tries, then you should fight him because he is a shame.
Some of the NMR because of these two Hadeeth, they took the position that the sutra was whadjuk that you have to do it, like an Imam made an Imam is show Kenny and other than them. But I want to say to you, those of you who are trying to be on the sun and it's all of us, you have to relax in these issues. You have to relax in these issues. Don't be in watershed Did you see some people and they're from the Hanafi madhhab from our relatives or msgid that you go into, and they don't want to put their feet next to you and they and these individuals don't believe in taking a sutra for example, people are not taking the sutra. Don't be machette did that. Because there are some scholars who
took the position. That is not legit. Because there are some Hadith where it says that the prophets are seldom prayed to other than a sutra
to other than a wall he prayed to other than a wall. Okay, many of you prayed today to other than a wall. But that didn't negate that you had a sutra. So the point here is there are some scholars who said it is nice to have banister sooner. So don't be rough. And don't be tough with people. When it comes to practicing and apply in the sooner
especially if you know the issue has the life. If you know then be a tolerant person who tries to relay the heart and the truth and knowledge to others. And don't be judgmental towards others and rough and tough with them. Because they didn't take your point of view in a lot of times. The people have an opinion that is supported by scholars. So take it easy, I believe a lie by the Lord of the Kaaba that you're sending if you don't pray towards a sutra, because he commanded you must do it. And he prohibited you from doing it. And the principal in a solo fit is el amor your fiddle with Jube Ella and yet Tia sorry phone for you, sir for an elbow job. When the Prophet sallallahu
wasallam commands you to do something, it is whadjuk to do that thing, unless something comes to show you is not magic. He said in a Hadith, Allah has added a prayer on you people and it is the winter prayer. So pray the winter. So he commanded and another Hadith you said, Verily Allah He has made with the widget so whether it doesn't make which is not from us, whether it doesn't make winter does not from us, men love you till Felisa Mina. So he commanded but there's a hadith that came when he said five prayers you have to do in a day and night. So that goes to show us that way. And with the man came and say Yato sola, if I pray my five prayers, and I fast Ramadan when I go to Jana, you
say yeah, so if we took was whadjuk if aid was whadjuk, he would have said Other than that, so it was seven. So there are many a hadith ordering, take the sutra and there are Hadith like the one I mentioned, prohibiting you from praying without a sutra as allowed Allah mentioned in the Quran and this principle comes from the Quran and Sunnah, the opposite one of the first one that I mentioned. And now you you feed him a language it aside from the use slip.
When there is a prohibition, it means that it is haram unless a delille comes to show. No this is not Haram is macro, like the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Accra who came in me, Accra who came, he said, I hate cauterization when you burn yourself to get the disease out, he allowed it. He told the people he allowed it, but he said I don't like it. So it shows it's not haram because he allowed it. He allowed his companions to do it. Send a loved one who send them and his speech allowed it. So the ayat of the Quran is said fell Yeah, Dylan levena Johan de una Emery and to see Boone finetune out you see them on a limb. Let those people be were who go against his
command that a fitna will hit them or they'll get another severe punishment. Or the other is when I attack him or sofa Whoa. Mama Hackman infantile, whoa, what the Prophet told you to do do it. And what he prohibited you from leave it all alone. My motto can be fat to men who Mr. Tato woman a man who fetched Honey Boo. When I told you to do, do whatever as much as you can do, and you have the ability to take the sutra is weijun and what I told you don't do leave all of that alone. So he prohibited us and told us don't pray without taking the sutra. So those two hobbies honey, we're going to nectar Phoebe Hema. We're gonna just use those two, but they are mainly Heidi but they're
repetitive. They're saying the same thing. We move on to the issue of
The way that the companions used to look at this issue of taking the sutra and the emphasis that they used to put on it, with one on one he I lay him like the statement that Emanuel Buhari brought Rama to light he to Allah La. There was a companion. His name is Cora Eben. Yes. May Allah be pleased with him. He said I was praying between two pillars. I didn't have a sutra and Mr. Kane, and he grabbed me by the back of my neck. And he pulled me over and put me behind a sutra and then he told me while I was praying suddenly la ha, pray towards this. So remember read the line who he was, I mean, been my roof. Nah, him and
he used to command the good and used to prohibit the evil and he was what coffin Leakey tabula. And whenever you gave him a delille, anytime you went against this position, and you said, Allah said this, Rasulullah said that somebody was telling him, even if someone did something bad to him, and he was angry, if you gave him the Demille, he was stuck, walk off the Quran. That's a tremendous characteristic to have to be a person. When the proof comes to you. You submit to God in a heartbeat in a deal. And that's something that's hard to do. For a lot of people. His wife comes and says to him, this thing you're doing and the dean or the dounia is wrong, because Allah said Rasulullah
sallallahu wasallam. And then his, his his kibber makes him say, what scholars said that before you and he knows what she's saying is right.
He knows what she's saying is right, but he just can't take the advice. So he says, What Starla said that before you knowing full well it's gonna be hard for her to say what scholar she just heard her Heidi if he or she knows and if they're so she, the point is, don't be from those people don't be from those people, or might not be aligned, who he saw the need and the importance and the significance. When he saw the Muslim praying his brother from the companions to he was praying without a sutra, he put them read the Alon who behind the sutra that's an example. Another example, is what was collected by Imam Bukhari and the authority of Ansible nomadic Ravi Alon and Ansible
nomadic was axed the question
can you pray after the event of a mothership and before the salaat is the asuna pray two rakaat before the than the after the event of in Madrid and before the magnet prayer,
and many messages after the event of Margaret immediately they make the karma and although this is permissible, is in contradiction of the Sunnah. And when you do that, and when the message does that, you will help him to destroy him to kill and to eliminate a son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and there's no wisdom in doing that. People are fasting on Mondays and Thursdays, they are fasting in other days. So what is the wisdom what is the Hickman what is the ALA what is the Subbu? Why Why do that give the people time to pray to God.
And what was collected by an Imam Muslim the Nabi sallallahu Sallam said baina their name or their name Salatin, between every adult and karma there is a prayer to be made sooner. So every event five times a day and every comma after that than five times a day. There are two rockets to be prayed. Even at the magnet. So they wanted to know from Allison automatic, can you pray these two rockets after the end of Margaret and before the comma? He says, come to
a two as harben Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yep, Teddy Ronald sawari burden Margaret hotteok Regina bu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I saw I saw the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taken the pillars of the messages as sutra. They used to take the pillars and get behind the pillars and they used to pray to rakaats after the event of McGarrett and then they will wait to the Prophet came out sallallahu it was sender. So his mentioning the sutra issue was a secondary issue. You just want to let them know. We used to pray after Madrid. But how do we pray? We used to pray behind the pillars taking the sutra another one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
His name is
Salma, April Aqua. May Allah be pleased with him if he travel. And he was in the desert and Berea.
He would take rocks and put those rocks on top of each other if you didn't find a sutra, and you will pray towards those rocks in the middle of the desert. And that was as soon as the Prophet sallallaahu send them in the middle of the desert, there's nothing around no trees, nothing. Nothing's around. What would he do? He would take his spirit put it in the earth, and he will use it as a sutra. Salalah why'd you send them He will make his camels Sit down. And then he was used as camel as a sutra. No camel more than likely wasn't going to get up wasn't going to walk away. sallallahu alayhi wa it was seldom one of the setup from the Tabby again, his name is knafeh and
My Malik Nerys Heidi from Napa. Napa right now reads the Hadith from Abdullah bin Omar. And the scholars call this chain of narration as solicited to the heavier, the golden chain of narration they said the best chain of narration in Alma de is when Mr. Malik narrates that he heard from his shift from the tabbing knafeh nafion said he heard from Abdullah bin Rama mela be pleased with him. Abdullah, if no matter said he heard from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this and this and that and this. Now if it said if I was with I'm delighted in your mind and we were together and in find anything to turn into a sutra he would say to me to not fit. What will lynnie varrock
turn your back to me and sit down and let me praying up my sutra just like his father used to do up the loving fathers Oh my god, the Alon Jemaine. It was reported who we are, and made a bin halau it was narrated that Mr. de la saw a man praying. And people were walking in front of him. They were walking in front of him while he was praying, because he didn't have a sutra. So remember, may Allah be pleased with them when to that man and put his back to that man and sat down face to Kabbalah so that he could be the sutra to the man. So the Edit if you're going to pray, and a human being is going to be your sutra is that you should try to have their back to you as opposed to praying and
then looking at you.
Profits alone sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to pray in his house. And our mother I used to be sleeping lying down. And she was in front of him. And when he wanted to make such that he would bow down and touch her feet, she would pull a feeling. And he was praying towards her Salalah it was setting them but he wasn't praying to her. So that goes to show us the importance of the Hadith in Nirmala madhubani. Yet, the these will be judged by your actions. So the Qibla in your house is facing the fireplace. We don't pray towards no fire if you can help it, don't pray towards the fire, the fire is burning. And you say it's not my man, no is better for you not to do that. better for
you not to pray towards fire, mentorship by becoming for men whom whoever resembles and he imitates of people he's like that. So the people worship the fire, they pray towards the fire. So you have to make an effort not to pray towards the fire. But if you don't have any other alternative except to pray in that room, and that fire is facing the table, and that's the only thing and the only way you can pray at your work at home, wherever you may happen to be. Then enter mallamma, Labine yet but you have to make an effort not to do that. Not to do that. And some of the people the paths they used to like bura he said that his father, he was told that when he saw that people praying without
a sutra, he said that these people their children are going to come and they're going to say in with jedna bat and Allah mitten, we're in Allah whom the dune barely found our fathers doing this, and we're going to follow what our fathers were doing. When we allow these types of sunon to die, to disappear to dissipate, then the New River who comes he's not going to know he's not going to know. Our children are not going to know. They're not going to know. So everybody has a responsibility to do his best to insha Allah give life to sunon that have been forgotten that have died sunon that the people don't know about and again, I repeat what I told you people before when I perfect here in
green lane, not perfect. We all know that we could be better people better Muslims. We could have memorized more of the Quran. Have we been more committed? We could have had 40 Hadith committed to memory by now.
We're not perfect, but you leave Birmingham. And you go to some of these massages across the UK, where the Muslims don't have a clue. They don't have a clue about the etiquettes of the masjid. They don't have a clue about respect the knowledge the importance of the sinner. They don't have a clue as to how the Muslim woman should dress. So she's outside without any hijab. But hamdulillah she has a man. So she comes to the question. What is the message though? the masjid facilitates for her a job. Some of our wives were that he died. It looks like a little Martian suit. The head part is a little Martian like, but the bottom part is why our wives were that. Don't look at me like I'm the
only one saying I was way that they have in the machine a bunch of those. So when the lady comes in with no he gibeon she puts that on. And then she prays and then she takes it off. And she goes out. And I don't know, is that Masjid facilitating Masia?
Because if you do that, you're saying it's okay. But if you take it away, and she comes, she can't pray. So this is one of those catch 20 twos is dichotomy.
So the point here is these issues about holding on to every aspect of Islam, of course, prioritizing things holding on to a towhee holding on to the correct key, the issue of whatever sooner you have the ability to keep alive than keep it alive. That shouldn't have been the waffle prayer, as soon as Thursdays and Mondays fast in the Sunnah of so many issues that do ours that we should know coming in, unless you're going out into mischief, and so forth, so on. So the second half of this Rama, Rama to La heeta, Allah, Allah him and mine, they used to be a deed or Nash deal in a negative way with MSC Kuhn holding on to the student of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam look what happened,
Honey, look what happened.
A man from the Tabby rain, his name is boson ebenso read, he said boson even say from the Tabby? He said I was sent by a companion. The Companions name is a Diplo harlot booster said zeta manoharan sent me to Abu jehane another companion that companion since the younger Tabby to go to the other companion, Abu hain Abu heinous Abdullah Abu Hadith, and I'm sorry, rob the old one. Say hey, you go over to him and ask him. What does he know about walking in front of the person who was praying? What did he hear about that from the prophet SAW the lady was send them so booster went out to him? He said, Listen zeytinburnu harlot Ravi Alon who sent me to he wants to know what did you hear that
the Prophet said about this issue? Some a lot even seller? He said I heard the Prophet say so Lola while he was cinema.
Lo Jamar Bane and yet daily Musa Lee,
the Canon levelwind Yaakov arbaeen hirundo humulene, new Mirage Bane, a de The one who is walking in front of a person who was praying, if he knew the evil of that if he knew that sin of that, if he knew the danger of walking in front of someone with a sutra, then it would have been better for him to wait for 41 of the narratives and not even said, I don't know if he said 40 days. I don't know if he said 40 months. I don't know if he said he should wait 40 years. And that is a nun nun key.
And now who a kid Well, we're either shady. That's a serious issue. before walking in front of someone you should wait 40
don't throw the dice and gamble and say 40 seconds. I think that's what it's all about 40 minutes? No, you need to just wait. Go around and go the other way. This Hadid had a reason to why he said that. The companion I will say that hodari was praying, read the alignment.
And the young man wanted to leave the masjid. And the only way that he can get out of the machine was passing in front of I will save 100 I don't know. Maybe I will say the hoodie was praying right there. Right here. And that's the only way to get out of that side of the message where he was he couldn't go around. He had to go that way. So he tried to get across in front of apple cider hodari I will say that Audrey pushed him back in his chest. He didn't know what to do. He has to get out.
So he got upset, he went to force himself. And then I will say the hoodie pushed him very hard. And he got upset. And he says something negative to Abu Saeed and
he is from the tambourine. And he has to adapt with the shape with the elder from the companions, rob the Alo animal.
Because we're human beings, and that can happen. So we don't endorse, nor do we condone having bad edit with people Odin in you, even if they're not Muslims. And we don't condone and we don't endorse you having bad edit with people of knowledge. But it happens. So if you see it happening with someone, relax, take it easy. It happened with people better than that individual. And plus, he doesn't have a pattern of doing that. relax yourself, become angry for Allah, but be angry for the right thing. And in the right way. Don't always be angry, I saw, I will suhaib talk the last one. And when she was given those things he will mention from the Jomon and Kelvin. And he mentioned some
things. And I didn't listen to the whole lecture. But I happened to look at one of the comments. And someone didn't agree with something that he said, in the Davos, I never heard what he said. But I read the comment, the person said, because he said whatever he said in the deluxe, he's a trader, a trader Manasa
because he disagrees with you, he becomes a monastic.
This is how we are. And that's the culture of the social media. Everyone is a jackleg.
Everyone has an opinion and say what he wants. And it's insanity. Because our comments always go south, they always go pear shaped. just edit and put your opinion, we are some nasty pieces of work, the Muslims, will protect people outside of Islam will talk about their mothers will use those nasty curse words, just because he didn't agree with you. And the heart may be with him. So I want to ask you people be like Alec,
when you wash your baby in that little basin or whatever, you wash him, the dirty water? Do you take the baby and the water? And you throw it out in the backyard? Does anybody do that? Because I've called social services on does anybody do that? No one does that. We're gonna wash that baby and take them over there and then discard the dirty water.
Any of you any of you when you cut your fingernails? Do you cut your whole finger off?
Cutting the finger? No, I know some of you bite way down into the cuticle you move the nervous I know that. stopped doing that. And I know some of you cut all the way down till you get to the meat. But does anybody does?
Does anybody here cut his whole finger off? Anybody?
Okay, well, your brother took a position. The sheriff took a position different from your position. relax yourself. Yeah. Be more tolerant. Am I encouraging you educating you calling you and calling you to be tolerant towards haram should cover beta, homosexuality all of this stuff? No.
know your environment and know what's going on and know who you're dealing with. We want the sooner to spread. A lot of times the spread of the truth comes with good teaching good preaching, and people doing it the right way doing it themselves being examples being examples. So that Hadid the young boy went to the halifa at that time, his name was Miranda boo hakam. He went to complain. And he complained he said What happened? I will say the hotel he went behind them and came in the mirror and said, What's wrong with you? And the son of my brother, my nephew, what what happened? He told him the story. And he told him I heard the Prophet say sell a lot while he was set it up. If the one
who's going to pass in front of someone who's praying knew the evil of it, he will wait for 40 he will wait for 40 and he told him the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Don't let anyone pass in front of you while you're making a salad. Don't let him pass in front of you and your sutra. And if he really tries, then you can find him. Now the word that was used was Makati law, kill him fight him. But that doesn't mean you take out a knife and you stab them. It doesn't mean that's extreme. That doesn't mean you take out a pen and you put in his eyes doesn't mean that doesn't mean that you grab them and you go extreme it means you can use force. So you stop him at first he
insists you can do it.
you praying and you're going to let them know, you know you're dealing with right now. And you use that strength.
And you want to let them know I'm not joking with you. And you're still praying, praying.
Now, in the fifth of Islam, there is a thing that's called the deal. The deal is, when you're responsible for knocking someone's eye out, you're responsible for cracking his head open, you're responsible for breaking his finger, chopping his finger off last, I'ma holla you are responsible for his left ear getting taken off, you broke his foot, you your family, your child, your wife opened the window. She wanted to look out the window, and the park fall, and it smashed someone's car, his window, you have to pay for that. The life the destruction of people's property, you have a camel sheep something and he goes into the yard of someone into his Missouri and he eats his
vegetation. His fruit you have to pay for that.
The scholars of Islam said in the process of stopping someone from passing in front of you, if he accidentally fell and he cracked his head. He accidentally got tangled up and he cracked his hit. Something happened to him and he broke something because of your force. There is no dear upon you. Because the profits the law what he was sending him said if he insists then use more force.
So with that being the case, make things easy for you is if people if the people see that you have a sutra, then the people know I can walk in front of him, I can walk in front of the sutra. And if a person doesn't have the sutra, try to walk behind individuals. Some of them have the opinion. Even if he has a suture he shouldn't walk in front of him. But the strong opinion in shala is that you're allowed to walk in front of him suture but you can't walk between him and between his sutra now the issue about the sutras planning is seldom said to the person who takes a sutra whether yet new min ha, then I'm come close to it. So don't let your suture you're praying here. And you think that your
suture is all the way over the five meters 10 meters know, when the Prophet means sedge de and his head hit the ground and prostration sallallahu alayhi wa sallam between his head in the sutra was enough space for a small animal to walk through it. So the space shouldn't be like that. Nor should your head be right up on the sutra. But it should just be enough where a small animal can walk through it. Again, stay balance. No one is telling you to go bring a small animal and then you measure it and you do don't do that's too much. Relax, because there are people like that. And that's why the Prophet said halycon matana to own, those people go too deep, they will be destroyed.
And I've seen this. I told you about the sisters with the hijab and certain messages. There are certain messages with hats. Tobin's the topis, that the coffee's got a basket of hats. So if you're going to MSG, and you don't get that hat and put it on, people get upset with you know, man, I'm not putting on anybody else's head. Because I don't know who got the ring worms. And I don't know who got lice in his head. And I don't know who's hygienic and who's not hygienic. So you've seen sometimes, I've given the hook back, and I had to borrow someone's hair. While I'm looking to borrow someone's hat. I'm looking at the audience. As someone who I say, that guy, he looks like he knows
the Hadeeth a tour shuttle man, cleanliness is half of faith. So I say let me use your hat. But if I didn't find anyone I fell out just leave the issue, although you don't have to pray with a hat. So the one who fails, you must pray with a hat you must. He'll put pressure on you praying with the hat. And there's no Hadeeth ordering it. Nobody's prohibiting you from not doing it. He'll put pressure on you and he should be done it. But he won't put his foot next to you in the prayer. And there are text telling him to do that. He won't take a sutra. And that's how the time is that reliving it. The sooner is innovation innovation is the sooner and with that being the case, being
equipped with that knowledge and that information. Take it easy, take it easy and giving down a lot. be rough and tough with the Imams of Cofer be rough and tough with the people who deserve that. But generally speaking, try to be Hagen nagyon besito be easygoing, be gentle be relaxed with the people that you are giving Dawa to. So there's a lot of whining concerning the issue of the sutra and the issue of those sunon that are Majora the sunon that the people don't
Do what they don't know about. They don't do they don't know about. Try to be of those people, not who are trying to be very, you want to be very strange, and you're doing everything that people know Don't, don't, don't try to be like that. But when you know that something's from the sun, let them do it. Like those imams of the past, they used to say, if I knew something was dissonant, I would do it at least once in my life once I notice a sama do it. One of the scholars, I don't remember who it was off the top of my head. He said, If I believed going on top of a mountain and secluded myself and ate the calf was the son now we do it, how the Prophet sallallaahu Selim is to go to Mount hero
before the Koran came to him. And he was contemplating constant training, meditating, doing whatever he was doing up there. He said, if that was the Sunnah would do that as well. And like that Hadith that we just mentioned, that companion Ravi Alon whom he sent buzzard, to go to the other companion, because he wanted to know what did you hear from the Prophet sallallaahu it was sent him about this issue, and one of them would travel a long distance just to get one Heidi. So let us Sharla younger brothers especially use this time of good health and youthful exuberance to memorize the Quran, Ibrahim, smile all of you young guys, all of you brothers, this is the time for you guys to get
serious in terms of memorizing, especially memorizing, and start messing about stop mucking about. Just get serious with a min hedge. So that inshallah after year two, three years, you're going to be far advanced from where you are right now. So we'll take any questions that you may have. For the next 10 minutes in the line We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give you the height of the dunya and akhira I will smile when you come in to visit me up DMA. Yes.
All right, we're waiting for you in sha Allah.
It has to spot man. Any questions that whining. Now
if a person walks in front of the person who doesn't have a sutra is is slot rendered null and void alone, mela berry sin. It's not null and void. It's not bartylla, but he's sent in.
But if one of three things passes in front of him, and he doesn't have a sutra, a sutra, then he has his salaat his bartylla with some of the Anima because of an authentic hadith. He says Allah who it was, it was saying that anyone who's praying and a black dog walks in front of him and nullifies his prayer.
Or a woman who was on her period in nullifies her prayer, it nullifies the slot of the praying person. And the third one, I believe, is a donkey, I believe, but I'm not sure. I'm in doubt. So I'll have to go back. And I will have to find that, in order didn't find that real quick for me. And the wasa X was up about those three things. I'm sure about those to the woman who is on her period. As for the one who's not on her period, I told you Prophet Mohammed was praying some of it was some it was in front of them used to touch her and she would pull in her legs which goes to show touching a woman while you have Udo doesn't break you will do and touching a woman while you're praying. It
doesn't invalidate your prayer. unless she's on her menses a Chroma a chromic Mala. Now
concerning Mecca, and mocha Rama, can you pray there without a sutra? The Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the ayat of the Quran and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sending them a general there for everybody there for every time. They're for every place unless there's a delille show and there's an exception.
So as it relates to taking the sutra Mecca has the same ruling. Medina has the same ruling, although there's a lot of a lot of crowds that are there. So what you have to do when you're there is you get in where you fit in, try to get in a place and it's doable as possible. Get in a place. We can do it behind the pillar. We can do it behind people we're praying, but if someone was trying to pray, someone was trying to pray, where the people walked around the Kaaba, you can't pray there. You can't pray there because people are going to run in front of you and walk in front of you.
So try to get in the place where it's most suitable for you in Mecca. You're going to pray sometimes right next to a woman. She's going to be right next to you. Because that happens is so many people. And in these cases for top law, Mr tattoo, now you can live Allahu nevsun 11 Laos aha Nam Aquino redeem
the donkey on
the telephone via the sutra
so the Hadid said three things if it walks in front of you, it breaks your Salah. You got to start praying again. The woman who's on her period
the woman who's on her period, the donkey and the black dog. So if a white dog comes by a brown dog comes by just keep it moving, keep it moving. No problem.
He didn't move you don't want to touch him. He's a dog you praying that him go by. But the black dog you have to start your probe and they said what's wrong with the black dog? Why the black dog? He said it is a shape on nothing he said with him is a shaytaan is a shaytan was with him. So now the question is some people take their mobile phones and they put it on the floor as being the sutra. Some people take their hat and they put on the floor as being a suture they take their pen put on the floor being a suture the wallet is book is that a sutra?
Allahu mela. That's not the sutra. Because the Prophet sallallaahu Selim gave the size of the sutra and he said it should be the size, the height of your saddle, you're riding saddle on the horse, the riding saddle that's on the on the on the camel. And that rhiness saddle has that thing in the front and in the back. And it's about this high.
Again, don't go overboard. You don't have to go and get a saddle and you have to measure it. And you you know you say my suture has to be so many symptoms. You don't have to do that. Relax.
Relax, take it easy.
shot.is not nice in the religion, at the shadow being rough and tough with my wife, with my kids, with the people with myself. Law.
Allow them in general, Quran, URI Dubois who you have an Oracle in Santa Eva, Allah mentioned in the Quran. You read hula, hula, common user, when are you ready to become an author? He said in the Quran for tomorrow's three Yusra, in tomorrow's three Yusra. He said in the Quran, Mama Anza Nanak. Quran Lita
slam, to make things easy for you. So know, your phone and things like that that are still on the ground, not permissible. Also, there are some Hadith that says take a sutra. Even if you have to make a line in the earth, you have to make a line beside Ethernet authentic, because people can't really see that they can appreciate that.
But they can see something that's big, and they have respect, even the kofod to this day. In America. If you have been sentenced to death, the death penalty. in certain states in America, there's the death penalty right now.
And then that death penalty before you get killed with electricity, lethal injection, they shoot you hang you whatever they do. They give you some last requests. One of the last request is what's your religion. I'm a Muslim. I'm a Jew. I'm a Christian. Okay, we're going to bring your preacher and your priests your Eman is going to make do offer you whatever give you
support. What's the last thing that you want to eat your last meal.
So depending upon What's your favorite food, they're gonna bring that whatever it happens to be.
So I know what some of you are going to choose. Because of your coaches, people are gonna see the same thing.
And they may say to you, you can make your last prayer, and they'll give you time to pray your last prayer. And as long as you want to take they'll give you that time. Even if you tried to pray for a whole day, they know at some point you're going to get tired.
And once you start praying, they don't bother you. They don't interrupt you. They have respect for the spectacle of death
in the Constitution. So the Constitution has some good things, has some bad things. Again, it's a dichotomy. It's an enigma, something hard to understand. And one point you have rights that are protected the government the constitution will allow you to march it would allow you to march and protest against the government and they will protect you in doing that. They will protect you to say we don't want you
But that same constitution would allow the criminal who became the president to become the president. How does that happen? Where he loses the general vote, he loses, but he wins. Because of the eyes of the Koran woman Lamia can be madonsela wha hoo una Coronavirus de mon
hoko. mavala is the best hokum. Somos just accom is the most beneficial hokum in a hurry. So, as it relates to this issue, if the non Muslims and when you have respect for people who are praying, then men babble Allah, the Muslim, the Muslim, we should respect people who are praying, but we don't have that respect because after the prayer and meaningless magic, after the prayer, you will hear the people talking. You will hear during the prayer the mobile phones going off, but after the prayer, there's a hadith where he says something about what he was saying women and men are ekata to suddenly an ad comb. Mme a female Salah will lead in Salafi Malema.
The melodica will continue to make dua for you. As long as you sat in the place where you prayed, the melodica will keep asking a lot for do all for you. As long as you don't lose your will do. So after prayer. The people were sitting in their places, the melodica still making dua, and these people were screaming and shouting and hollering because they don't have respect. They don't have respect. How does that respect come? by people like Yo, yo, yo, you, you, you, you You and me, giving advice and not fill in. I'm just coming to be a taker and coming to benefit. Don't be like that. You have to be like that water that the Prophet mentioned Salalah what he was saying that he
said my family will methadone my bathroom in LA he beat him in and Huda metal rave and Sabah Aruba. He said my example Salawat he was sending my pseudonym, my religion, my example. And what Allah sent me with of guidance and knowledge is like the example of the rain that came down and hit the ground. There are three categories of people three types of land, he said, The first type of land, the rain came down, the man soaked it in, and then it threw out his vegetation. So he took the information he took. And then he gave back with our with practicing with naseeha. He said, The second type of land is that the rain came down. And it brought in a broad in the rain, that land brought in the rain,
but didn't send anything out. Like the desert, the sand doesn't send anything out. There's some dirt does, nothing grows there. But it benefited. It took the knowledge, it took the rain. And some people are like that. I'm gonna listen to the whole, but I listened to the dose, but I ain't gonna say anything. Nothing. I'm not saying anything. I don't care if I see someone getting ready to do something sugar, I don't have anything to say nipsey nipsey.
And then the third and then the third type of land and third type of person is like the land that the rain came down. And it just settled on top of the land became a puddle.
The the land didn't take it in. And he didn't send it out. He didn't get any benefit. He's like the one who turned away. Women other than women men
took care of big law for our the
Who was worse than the one who was reminded, and he turns away, he turns away he didn't get any benefit. I said we're going to take revenge from these criminals who do that all of those if all of those if so anyway, when he is how are we going to spread this thunder. And this is how we shout louder titled as soon as going to live and it's going to be revived.
have been to Mecca when there's a lot of Zama and there's a book that one of the chefs of the harem he put out i think is a shaker shuraim I'm pretty sure was him. And his book is called I cam azana the rules and regulations that come as a result of big crowds, big crowds.
And he brings a lot of amazing contemporary issues when you're in Mecca and hedge time and
The roles extend all the way back to your hotel and beyond your hotel. Is it permissible for you to leave that ninth floor where you're standing just come down in the middle of that hotel and don't even go outside and pray with the Jamaat. He brings all of these new issues. And from the issues he is bringing from the rules and regulations of Zama, is,
when you see in Mecca all of these people, what do you do, you have to try your best to just avoid them. Try your best to imagine where the suture be and try to get through them, try your best to wait a little time for the people to
for the people to clear out, and so forth. So you just try your best. And in concluding, I want to mention something personal to you, brothers, to let you know that I understand your youthful exuberance and being rough and tough when you're young. And as you get older and older, you come down. You see some of these older brothers here. You're not like you were when you were 1819 and 20. I remember when I was in Medina, that was about 22 years old.
When I learned about the rafidah, the shell of Iran and Iraq who cursed the companions, I developed a real unhealthy hatred for them. very unhealthy, because you shouldn't hate people, to that degree, hate what they're saying. hate that archy that hate that min hatch, hate or lm o came up with that stuff. But hating each and every individual, I used to have a very unhealthy hatred for them to the point where I would walk in front of them when they were praying.
They would be praying, I just walked right by them and they wouldn't care just keep walking.
Because I didn't see him as being Muslims. And I didn't see that they had the right to even be there because of what they were saying about
Asia, the wives of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim and his companions, Abu Bakar man in particular, so I will walk in front of them.
And I thought I was justified in doing so. And we used to do other things other than that, it was unhealthy. But as time went on, you start growing you start developing you start realizing these people are ignorant and they don't know what they're doing. And it's not so much that person who's praying it's the fact of us a lot respect this a lot is like the spectacle of death. Agent as when by Prophet Mohammed stood up some of it was send them the companion say I'd also love if the genetics of a non Muslim, he said Is he not dead?
ism is a dead person is the spectacle of death is not the cover that I'm respecting, is the serious issue of kulu laughs in the ether to note the spectacle of death has to be respected. Whether it's a Muslim or non Muslim, so he told the people sell a lot he was selling at a con to the hater comenzado to Cabo for zoo in LA to the CARICOM Bella Hara. I said what are you people prevent you from going to the graves, but I'm telling you go to the graves, they remind you of the hereafter. And he didn't say go to the Muslim grave. He said go to the graves. So if you go to a grave with a non Muslims, just so that you can think and reflect I don't care how nice your house look. I saw
that in a text message today was someone had a bedroom had a very nice queen size bed. Matching
lamps on either side. Matching dresser drawers a chest nice carpet. That was the room you're looking at the room from here and at the foot of the bed was a hole of the grief. I thought that was a nice picture. I thought that was a nice picture that I don't care how nice Your house is how nice your car is, is where we're going to end up in that grave ultimately. So we have to do everything to make that grave and the reality that's the end result. Make it something that sticks in your in the front of your eyes so that we don't make veba and slip so that we don't make the minute and slip so that we don't waste time we slipped and we forget okay honey, may Allah bless you brothers inshallah make
