even suicide, we're coming to the end of it today basically, based on how much time actually we had to talk, probably get down to the end of the page and we'll have one more page left. So we'll be done soon.
Definitely before Ramadan, that's a given, I probably would have much enough time to start a another sutra or to start a settlement, we may start with like when halacha before Ramadan begins, so we won't be able to actually finish it or come even close to,
but we'll do our best Inshallah, in terms of trying to finish mixture, his job is done before Ramadan starts. So I can do a summary of it and kind of revise it with everyone. In case you didn't come to all the Halacha. But hopefully, you'll have a clear enough understanding and comprehension of the SUTA itself, allow you to
interact with the verses if you when you read them again later on inshallah in your life. And that's the point of understanding sutras in a thematic way. And looking at the clusters of students, they talk about similar topics or have a common theme, the read the point of this, or the benefit of all this is that you it gives you a compass, when you're reading the sutra on your own, meaning you have an idea what this surah is trying to tell you. So when you read the idea, you can understand it under that theme. And it makes more sense to you meaning you're able to interact with it a bit more. When you're reading the Quran, you have no idea at all. What this sword is talking about, like I've
no understanding whatsoever when it was revealed. Why What was the context of it, what point is trying to make what part of it's a part of what type of what cluster of suicide, what are they trying to teach, then you kind of lost and you're used to it, you'll make assumptions. And you may make, you know, very mistake a lot of wrong assumptions and end up understanding something from what you're reading that is very different from what the source is actually trying to tell you. However, if you do do understand the theme, it will make much more sense. It really does like the idea itself. Like today, we're going to explain a few
and then next time and time after that i i am 100% sure that you are going to have a level of appreciation of these. The others do not mean they want to share with you 90 with you the level of appreciating that you will have towards these verses because you understood these verses within the context of this long sutra that talked about certain topics that had a very clear theme. It was a very distorted talks about cluster of tours, talks about obedience, talks about submission of
Islam, Allah subhanaw taala. And it's looking at it from different angles with glasses. I was talking about doing that when it's very awkward to do it when it's hard when it doesn't make perfect sense to you when you find it difficult when it's not a comfortable situation. And almost every single story in it extremely difficult to speak of. Very awkward very uncomfortable. Very just very, very stressful. Yeah, I mean, we all felt it everyone here listening to the, to the to the I was struggling trying to understand it a bit more. And this is what Allah Subhanallah is trying to teach us. Yeah, and even when you're obeying Allah subhanaw taala. when it really counts, it really counts
when it's hard. That's when it really counts. It will really count when you're doing something when you're obeying Him subhanaw taala you're following his command when it's hard to do it, when it's easy to do with that.
By definition, I just said it's easy to do. It's no big deal. It's actually self serving or, and it's not it's not much of a hustle. When it's hard to do it. That's when things become and that's when you're being observed a bit more as well as the Okay, let's see, are you truthful about this and that's what also
I've been talking about. So building that that's all building up throughout the sutra coming to this idea number 56 That isn't a landmark is that everyone? Sorry that everyone knows everyone
has memorized it. You hear it almost every single Friday at the end of Mahatma the Imam before he finishes the hobo say in the law home and aka to home saloon
right and then we go to so we heard every single Friday it's a part of the of the other cliche of what the hotbar sounds like it's supposed to sound like to be honest, it's nothing wrong with it. I'm just saying that we've become quite numb to the to the idea. But this is where it is in the Quran. If you've ever wondered, okay with these ayat that we hear repeated every single Friday or in different or we hear repeated by Xu Kola in different
occasions, where do they exist in the Quran? Well, this is where this one exists in the Quran. But the funny thing, so if you had understood it before, and this is why the example trying to give you if you understood this idea before you probably did today when you understand the idea within source Eliza that makes a big difference. Meaning your level of understanding of this is going to be much deeper because now you know what this is attached to that attach to a student's talking about one difficult situation after the other of the Battle of the Confederates and how scary and how and how extremely difficult from from a fear perspective it was to stand your ground and do what Allah
subhanaw taala had asked you to do and be brave, be courageous, be courageous. Talking about the wives of the Prophet selects eliminate accepting a certain level of livelihood that was not some non ideal to say the least in anyone's opinion, talking about the prophets Alexa lambs
issue of, of revealing his marriage to Zainab, who was deposed was the ex wife of Xena who was adopted son in this and this issue, this problem that was difficult for him. So I said he was not comfortable talking about this. There was a lot of backlash that come from it. Talking about his what is highlighted specifically to him from Elisa lemon, not Hello to everyone else, it was made haram specifically to him and not to everyone else on it. So Sam entering his own home, talking about his relationships with his wives and the relationship with the sahaba. And who can come into his home and who can and how they're supposed to behave about it. He's a lot of things that are hard
to talk about not comfortable, but after all that this is there.
So if you remember, after the first
cluster of verses that talked about the prophets, I send them feeling distress, to the fact that he had to talk about his marriage getting married, Zainab, something that he that he would talk to if enough cecum Allahumma de that he had hidden and wish that didn't have to happen. Right after that immediately. Allah subhanaw That put gave us an idea that talked about his status. Yeah, you had to be you in Nelson Lakisha. He didn't wish to on one of the day we talked about that and how those ideas focused on his status and Allah Holly's like we send them well here after also a number of that talked about what was made Haida to him at least talk to them specifically what was made haram
to him specifically. So let's tell him about what was happening in his home regarding people visiting him and interaction they had with his wives and what people thought about which is a very again a very hard thing to talk about. After all, that came another area that talked about a status symbol lesson number in a way that was unparalleled in the Quran. I mean, there is no similar idea to this one in the Quran anywhere else that you that you look at me, this is the only place where it subhanaw taala speaks, where he speaks upon our data about
a Salah Allah Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, something that we do it all the time I listen to him every time he his
his remembrance is brought into a sitting or someone talks about the Prophet you say Allah musalia,
Allah Holly's abuse and then it comes out naturally. Well, where do we get this from? This this daily activity? Right? It connects us right back at number 56. Within understood within this big theme of
talked about obeying Allah subhanaw taala specifically, what is it? Where does how does it fall under all that by the way, when you think about how does it fall under all of them? And how does this fallen? How does it work with the rest of the verses of the plaza and the theme that has within it we're just talking about obeying Allah subhanaw taala what is difficult to do so for whatever reason, because difficulty comes in different forms. Some of it is financial, like we saw with his wives choices, some of it is physical meaning you're scared for yourself some of its social and it's awesome it was feared the backlash of what they were saying about him some of it is more Jani
personal between you and someone else in not knowing I
feel embarrassed to tell people that you need to leave you've been here for three hours sitting around I need I need my time you need to go home and they would just sit and keep on sitting and and his wives would be in the in the room and we very awkward for them as well. Some of this was very personal. So you look at it, it works in every way. So I was political talking about the removal of bunny Corolla from Yanni from Medina who remember and during within that talked about the Confederates so there's a lot of different aspects of the difficulties we're talking about. So where does this fall in?
This is a remedy
is it just like yesterday, you know, I'm gonna call Allah the Quran cathedra. If you remember when we talked about those who said this is the remedy. This is how it makes it easier. You want to be able to make it easier. You want to be able to accept the Word of Allah Subhan Allah at the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala for that to become easier for you. Especially specifically when you feel it's difficult, well then you need to do a lot of vicar, a lot of remembrance of Allah subhanaw make that easier. It'll it's like an iron and just iron it all out, all the wrinkles are gone. Just keep on remembering Allah subhanaw taala in both both ways we talked about whether within your day daily
routine in terms of your decisions and your choices and how you go through life, you don't make a decision to make a choice without remembering Allah subhanaw taala or in terms of just doing the act of vicar, the worship of vicar where you do to speed and and do his stuff out and you do. This is what will make it easy. The more you do this, the closer your heart is to Allah subhanaw taala the less awkward and difficult these choices are going to be you're not going to struggle with them anymore. And this is a continuation of that remedy. This is to strengthen again what is one of the types of vicar that we have in the Dean delille is one Scylla ilaha IL Allah is one and so far is
wanting to speak and how can I husband all these are different ways of doing of doing it has to be and thicker in remembrance and invocations. One of them is surah Allah rasool Allah, and it was taken specifically here and as it was pointed out
as a different concept than everything else. He was given his own little spot. This was how this is going to help you the most.
You were given the command
This is because this is what's going to help you do the most is going to help you become someone who accepts and obeys and submits to the will of Allah subhanaw taala easier than everyone else quicker, you're much more flexible. You don't struggle as much as everyone else you don't find as much distress. There's not as much knowledge, the word how to do that we saw time and time were going to come in, in the, in the sauna itself, you're not going to find out how to judge right? What should I do? Do a lot of Rasulullah saw, let's do a lot of that. And that will help. Why? Well, we'll talk about the meaning in a moment because you see what he's just saying the words that will fix the
problem. Well, just like I told you, vicar is two things, saying the words and then there's the actual remembrance, you're coming up to the decision and you stop and you say, Does this is this something that would please Allah or not? And you think about that for a moment and you make sure you factor that into your decision and into your choice every day. Right? That's the practical part. And that is actual act of worship without doing that disappear. The same thing applies here. The same thing applies when we're talking to the act of Allah Allah Rasulullah Salallahu Salam so we're gonna read the idea or three in a row, and then we'll talk about the meanings of it. But more detail
will be let him in a shape on your body
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
in law hawan Allah who you will follow Lunarlon be
so whenever you stop has a shudder. You have to make it sound the way I did. Alain de NaVi NaVi NaVi NaVi means the only one yet and as soon on it so it's not I don't know maybe it's Alan B. Maybe here I was like this two years in a row and both have shed so yeah, both has a shed so they both have sukoon on them so not you're not actually pronouncing one yet you're pronouncing two so you have to make sure that the emphasis is made when you stop Yeah.
You Hello Lavina falu Ali he was at length asleep

Another concept of why this another reason for why this is here is because most of if we go to the stories just one more time, most of the stories not all of them, have within them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as an active player, he's a part of every story. That's not the case in every part of the Quran. Let me say this with the last where they recited, I think Satoshi was not a part of any of the stories. Correct. He wasn't a part of any of the stories. All the stories were remote to him I leave so to summarize a person, every story is the Bible of the Confederate. He was in it. He was there. We talked to the second story we're talking about his wife, Sally centrosome.
Obviously, he's there. It's his wives. Their story was his marriage to designer the was the ex wife of Zeto. He's there that therefore his story was talking also about
what was mean to him specifically haram for him specifically that in his home, so it's very, very much revolving around things towards him some lights and as the ultimate example, someone like cinema, someone of someone who obeyed Allah subhanaw taala and submitted to His will when things were extremely difficult. Now, that's what I looked at other things as well, like sidetracked and different. went along. But the main thing, the main concept, the main example of someone who was capable of submitting when things were difficult was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salatu. Salam that does that make sense? So since he is the person who does it the best.
That's why he has to be the one that we take as our example. And that's why within this surah we had looked at the cannula comb via Rasulillah. He was certain hasin and that's why they also existed in this surah as well, because if you're going to take a role model, you got to take it all model based
On the fact that he did the job really well, when it was really, really hard, when it was extraordinarily difficult to do. So it's not it's not a big deal. If you can, if you can get things done, when it's easy to get things done, you don't really know the person at that point just kind of you just lucky so far, it happens a lot in life where you go through life, and you just ended up coexisting with someone in their good times are at their best at their prime. So you think they're awesome, but you don't you haven't seen them, you know,
it's a no going through a nose dip. You didn't see them on the other side of the slope. Right, and that's where it counts. And these ayat, you're talking about LA Santos and being in those situations, of fear of lack of a finance of, of being spoken about opening it is socially of, of suffering personally with with with the surrounding the people in his life, we're watching him some lights, and I'm seeing his character, and seeing his choices, and seeing the way that he behaved like we said, things were made for him that he did not take right was recited to us made for you listen for you. That yellow sort of light didn't make any of those, he didn't take any of them,
we're getting to watch him someday sell him as that example. So this is here also to tell us that He is the example you take regarding this specific topic or this topic in general is a big one. You want someone to you want them see someone perform when it's really hard, then look at him, some allah how to set them and you will find what you're looking for. He is the person to keep keeping an eye give it keep your eyes out for him. He's the one who's doing it. He's the one who's actually
upholding his ethics, his values and his morals, and continuing to perform the way Allah subhanaw taala required him to and ask them to no matter how bad and difficult and awkward and uncomfortable things became for him. So lesson, that we miss that so much, because of how consistent he is. We miss it because of how consistent he is, we fail to remember that because we're actual circumstances he was going through. That makes sense. When you see someone always performing, you don't think to look into his circumstances. It's only when they fail when you start asking about their situation. In their environments. When they fail, like what was happening, oh, I can see why he failed. I
understand. You know, he was going through a divorce, he just got fired. He was extremely sick, someone was fat, his family died, whatever, you understand that. But when someone's always reforming, you never ask, if you're working with a co worker everyday, they show up at same time with a big smile, they work really hard to get their work done for 20 years, you'll never think of going into any detail if he's an employee that's working for you, or a supervisor that you don't have a close relationship with, you wouldn't think of wondering about it. Because they're not doing anything out of the normal or they thought was to them was consistent with his values all through
his life, to the point that we stopped looking at the circumstances behind the man. And that took away a lot from understanding the man himself at least that was the person and what and how extraordinarily difficult that is. How extremely difficult how almost impossible it is to do for you to maintain the same attitude, the same outlook, the same perspective, the same level of performance, the same ethics and values and morals and the way you treat people all through your life.
It's only possible if nothing changed in your life. If you're always young, healthy,
financially well off and you say everything has to be really working for you all the time for this and even then you always have that, you know, sloppy day. There's always that you know, garbage day where you just wake up and you're just pissed off at Everything Is Everything just just you you're just not happy. Why I don't know why I'm just not happy. Just don't push my buttons today.
You saw a bad dream and forgot about it by the time you woke up and it just left that sour taste in your mouth. You're looking at the profits of the cylinders. This consistency is just as remarkable. And here's why the soda is here, teaching us how to submit to Allah when it's hard. Okay, well look at the prophets. I said them remind yourselves this was all happening in his in his life that said, Now you understand why these stories were there? Because when you think about why would that story of him withholding the information of him marrying Xena be here? Like why would that ever come in the Quran so that we know that he was a human being who had these problems? Who would be given a
command and it was struggle with it? It's hard. How do I tell people this? I tell them when they say about me?
How do I deal with the backlash of this hurt? What's up Janessa Allah when Tasha, you revere people's opinions, and you should only revere Allah. He's the only one worth of reverence when it comes to this. Not to talk about him making a mistake, but more to understand that he was going through difficulties on a daily basis to light the fact that he maintained his character and his and his mission and his message. Alia Santos, I'm sure his life is remarkable,
is unparalleled. And I don't know anyone else who was capable of doing it, but we missed out a lot because of the fact that it's just, we just don't pay attention. I've always asked the question Do you realize when Khadija died who was in his house when she died
She made me think about we think, Oh yeah, well, maybe home consumers know he had omocha zoom he had faulty Muhammad Ali he had Jaffa he had zayde. And he had the two kids of Khadija Hinden herder. Yeah. And there were there were seven kids in the house when Khadija died. He had to keep all of them all teenagers and younger and you had to take care of all of them. So listen them and they're not all biological brothers and sisters. I just saying, This is what he was stuck with. We don't.
For anyone else, is that not a life changing story?
I'm saying I'm saying it for any, any person else in here. If you're stuck with seven kids, most of them aren't yours. Two of them are yours. The rest aren't yours like you didn't give birth to anybody if they're not your biological sons or daughters.
Isn't that a life changing story? Wouldn't you be like on Oprah?
You're the guy who took care of kids, you're not you'll be a big deal. People making short documentaries of you. And no one visa Why isn't he practicing anymore? Any medicine? Why isn't he a physician? Engineer? Why isn't a Teacher Oh, he had to stay home and take care of his family to be clapping and he didn't he kept on he was a prophet. He was a lawsuit. He was assumed Allah Salah Salem, he couldn't say, Oh, I have seven kids. I'm gonna have to bail on this maybe moving on this? No, he continued to be rasool Allah Allah to them. And he did it really, really well. He did it so well, that you and I missed the fact that this was happening. And you're setting like he did it so
well, that we stopped. We don't know, we didn't know about this. We never thought of it. We didn't take the time to think about that concept that he actually for a certain period of time.
was a single father for a house of seven.
Five of them weren't his. That's a big deal. That there's a lot I don't know, I can't imagine anyone else being able to do that. But I think that's why this is here. In this suit. I specifically want to learn from someone learn from him. Some of them learn from how he continued to yucky kept on doing it kept on pushing, get on doing this part. You didn't notice. You didn't you wouldn't you wouldn't know. Most people didn't. Most people didn't know what was going on. The Orion came and exposed most of these things. Another example is this so that they understand the last time a bit more. No one knew how extremely uncomfortable he was and people stood stayed for three or four hours
in his own. They didn't know it.
Right, they thought he was enjoying their company.
As they sat hour after hour after hour, in his house, and he is tired and he hasn't slept all day. He hasn't seen his wife all day he hasn't, he hasn't relaxed.
They didn't know the Quran had to come and see get out
you know, and put the hijab in front of his wife so they didn't is that uncomfortable for them either the Quran to come and put out a couple of rulings for him sort of Leisa lemon regarding him because people didn't understand because that's the level of character and manners that he possessed Alessandro Salman in his own character, and that's why this is your in Allah indeed Allah whom Allah ecotel and his angels, your Soluna Alan Nibi.
Is there something similar to that that we read?
If you go back maybe to?
Yeah, so if you go to just a page and before to number 4343, right, who led you suddenly alikhan woman or equal to who? When you talked about the remedy of doing Vickery under the name and it was called Hola, Blanca Thea was somebody who was telling us how to fix the problem. And then who will pay you for legal if you do that, you understand that when you remember him, when you when you can perform invocations and you do to speak and you do thicker, Allah pardon himself, will send His blessings upon you when he's gonna do the same. And then this is brought back again, to specify for him some life limit for us. It's more for us, when other Sahaba was asked to rasool Allah, can I do
meal for it? When I do this, we can look at how much do I do for you like how much they do Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad, Muhammad almost solicit them how many men or whatever whatever forum or phrase you would like to use? So what
what do I what do I? What percentage do I use of that?
Whenever you like, to look at photos, or robot versus do a quarter like 25% of it look like in five wins it. Now this is going to make you do more than it'll be better. For God. If you have like a pseudo theological Allah, then I'll do a third quarter WinZip is good. And if you do more than I need, it will be more clear where you could have
made it it will be
higher and visit the file and if you do better, you'll do more you'll get more clear as well. As you have to get through the thing. I'll do two thirds thought And when's it difficult to do more there's more clear, but I don't like
to just spend my whole time doing quality then
You're one of them, but what took for him and if you do that, then your sins will be forgiven and your home will be taken away and your distress
making the your distress will be will be relieved. The stress I understand from this
No, that's not they all serve different different purposes. So every every test suite has its own, just like in Salah every movement has its own purpose. But this is this these type of a hadith and what we're citing here in the Sunnah is more just to emphasize something that it has a very, very large value. And if you took any of the tests behind any other car, and only did them and only did that one to see how they did it, well then you would you would you would reap the benefits of that you would take the benefits of that in your life definitely. And this and we do Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, you will take benefits that are maybe an even more unique to, to a situation that
we need that we need help in as Muslims living in the time that we're living in. Yes.
What is the difference between him and your
husband is sadness, um, is,
is whatever causes anxiety. So hum is when you're, you're anxious or you're carrying, when you worry about something, whatever is worrisome for you is him. Because it is just sadness if you're sad, right? So it hasn't hasn't, that's when you're just upset, regardless of the reason is when you're worried about something when you're carrying a responsibility that maybe
others aren't carrying, or you're feeling you're feeling weighed down on you.
More, there are two ways to understand this. When he says you for Lumina Island to be that Allah subhanaw taala indeed align as angels do follow. And then the beat upon the Prophet well Allah subhanaw taala is different than the angels and we talked about that last time when we talked about the number 43 in the in the sutra, who will have the useful era Kumala Iike to the salah of Allah subhanaw taala to send his blessings and his mercy and his and his love and his Dolphy and his visit of you know any facilitation to a servant and the monastic is Salah is to make dua, we recited a number of different dua that exists in the Quran on the Tamil acre would say for remote mins
show me how would you say I'm gonna be hamdulillah be him. We're still Lunella Dina menorah bene where she articulates a Ramadan? Well, my fellow fear, Latina, taboo, whatever I will say weeks ago to the first couple of hours and so too often, you'll find that there's a dua that the minority can say to those who are Muslims, that's their form of drug or that's their form of Salah. Now why the word is used like that because there will salah is the largest word of all in terms of a relationship that you have with Allah subhanho wa Taala whether it's in vacations, whether it's supplication you're doing dua, whatever it may be. All those words are a bit more specific. But the
word sauna is the umbrella word that all this falls under. And that's why we call what we do Salah that's why we call that's why we call it salah, because the umbrella word has to have the concept of relationship. If you are doing invocation if you're doing this be meaning you're magnifying Allah subhanaw taala that is a form of relationship between you and him. If you do it stuff, you ask for forgiveness, that is a different type of relationship. If you make dua, you're asking him for something for things specific. That's a different type of relationship. So and so on and so forth. As usual. Everything you do is a different aspects of the relationship you have with Allah subhanaw
taala and that's why the word sunnah comes from the root word, Sita.
So that means connection. That's why silica is having strong relationships with your family members. That's what it means. And so the concept of law is connection is relationship. That's what it means. So in the law, Humala, Aikido, you will saloon and maybe
they strengthen their relationship with the Prophet. Yeah, in whatever form, they're strengthening of the relationship comes in, in whatever form that comes in. And Allah subhanaw taala is former Secretary relations different than the Middle Ages is different than us. You don't do salah, you ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, say Allahumma Salli ala Rasulillah. Right? That's, that's one way. So you ask Allah subhanaw taala either send his blessing and there is love and is
His mercy towards the prophets. I said, but is there a way for you to do Salah yoga, and all those who believe sallallahu alayhi? Right. Because you're being we're being command is a direct command from Allah subhanaw taala to the movements? How many direct commands have you had in the sutra here?
Go back a bit. How many of you under the nominal if you had
three or four? Right? You have to beginning anything, I'm gonna just call on the amygdala, how they can remember the blessing of Allah and the Bible of the Confederates and how it ended. And we then got to what you want me to do when it comes to marrying and then divorcing before you actually constitute the marriage, and then you're the nominee? And maybe don't enter the house of the prophets as them unless you're being
granted permission to eat food and don't wait for the food to actually be made to enter when it's already done.
And so it's been around for like an hour and a half waiting for different things to get brewed and cooked.
But those are more specific to people who lived at the time. You and I weren't there for the battle of confederates. Some of us may actually get married and then have a divorce before it actually happens. None of us actually entered the house of the prophets I said but all of us everyone is being spoken to here. Yeah, you will have the NAM sallallahu alayhi. wa salim Otis Lima is a very important words, follow Allah He performed salah upon him, some of them in the form of saying Allahumma Salli ala ala Muhammad Ali he or Fabiola or saying some Allahu Allah Muhammad in wa salam and whatever form that you want to use it probably the best form is a form that you use within
prayer itself when you're doing the soliloquy Bohemia la masala Allah Muhammad Ali Muhammad Kamal Selita Ali Ibrahim, while Ibrahim America that's the probably the best way to actually do it in terms of following the Sunnah is that's what he told us to see some nice Hello himself. So that's one way. And that is understood. Meaning I want to give you guys a lot a few weeks ago, I gave you something to do. I don't know maybe, maybe start some thicker by doing 300 tests behind the morning and 300 in the evening. Do you remember what they were? So I advise that maybe do 300 stuff with Allah in the morning 100 Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad, Ali Mohamed Salah Talib, I do 100 times and
100 times with the ones in the morning and once in the evening. So altogether 600 times, just stick to that for a few months. And then you're done. If you feel you will see a change in sha Allah in your, in your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala in your relationship with the dean, then we'll start adding to that a bit. We'll put another 100 here and the 100 there, you'll build that up until you have an X number where you're doing a lot of invocation in the day will bring a lot of serenity and tranquility to your heart and you'll find yourself much more connected to the deen in general.
Well, the same thing goes for this.
When you do Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad, you know, I heard he was saying you do that 100 times or 200 times a day, you will find you will find the change and this is probably and you asked me why he that specifically why leave others. I've tried them all. And by far the most the one that has the most America is this and you'll find them all you'll you'll do dallied, and you'll do to speak and you do them all, you will find nothing that is more about than doing Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam because the connection is much bigger. Why? Because you're talking to Allah subhanaw taala you're not speaking to him. Some of them you're speaking to Allah, Allah Houma. As you're saying,
Allah Who Mazar speaking to Allah, you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to increase, the one who he whom he loves the most Subhana wa Tada. So not only is it beneficial to you is showing you the respect that you have to the one who Allah subhanaw taala told you to respect the most, he is the most beloved to Allah subhanaw taala some of the Hollywood said them. So when you show love to him, this is something that Allah subhanaw taala appreciates and loves more. So it strengthens the connection. That's one way and I think I've talked about that I last halacha we talked about liquor, I'm not gonna repeat all of it. But I do want you to try this. Do a bit more of them in your day. If
100 is too much for you, break it down into smaller chunks, do 10 And the after each prayer or do 10 At least in the morning after if you intend after maghrib any increase your salary levels will last at least a min and you'll see in Sharla Yanni the baraka of doing these things and the enlightenment of following them, but then there's a different way of Salah Rasulullah
this is this way is a bit more specific.
If we understand salah, your Soluna sallallahu alayhi
eyes connection, if you've established and that's what that is what it means actually solely, then we look at it from that perspective as well. A way for you to solve the other Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is to know what OSUIT Allah
is to understand what it is he came to represent. Ali's thought was salam to learn his life to learn what he said and what he taught the Quran. Number one The first thing that he talks about Allah He sent me the first thing that he practiced I didn't start to send him was the Quran number one and then whatever we have from the Sunnah for us to learn from to strengthen your connection with him some advice LM on a level that is much more practical, where you are trying to be more like him. Ali Asad was trying to live a lifestyle that is more similar to the lifestyle that he lived lived to embrace the values and the
and, and the morals that he embraced Ali aside for Sam and his life, to practice to follow him and the practices that he that he carried his life at least AutoSum that is another form of connection. That is another form of connection that is just as important, if not much more important than the one that I explained to you. If you're gonna sit all day long saying Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali you also have huge May Allah, Allah Muhammad Ali also have used and you're going on all day with that, but then only
when you when you when you speak to your wife, it is with without respect when you treat your children
Without love and when you're talking to your fellow Muslim it has no Yaniv.
What's the point? If then your lifestyle has nothing, no similarity to him, some of them anyway, when your lifestyle is completely disconnected from him, which is the whole point where you're trying to connect with Himalayan salt was stolen, but your lifestyle disconnected, that's a problem that needs to be addressed. No, that's more important sha Allah when you when you do more, with less, I think that will strengthen the love you have in your heart to Him and you will connect more, but that has to be the goal. The goal is not just the word, the goal is the state of the heart and then the state of the attitude, the perspectives and the behaviors. This is what this is what we
need to look into changing so you don't have the nominal Sonny Lou ie this this is also what he's saying supine without him. Yeah, Salah connect with him connect upon him
find that connection with him. So you can be like him. So you can live like Him or this or this whole thing is not going to be worth anything. That's why Salalah USL li mu, the steam it naturally moves Salama, right, Salah means Salam, and we have that in Salah assalamu alayka UNLV or rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh to him, but here it's not steadily Musa Dharma, meaning give synonyms, not suddenly more the sliema the slim as the Slim is from the same root of Islam. So, Salah masala man is one way to say things Vijay Salah masala man, that means he gave Salam so someone sell them at the Sleeman means he he submitted seldom at the Sleeman is different it means he gave his
submission he gave up
he handed something over in a submissive way. So Salah masala can mean and he gave us an answer someone selling them at a slimming and he gave something up. And in a submissive way he didn't he didn't fight. So we're suddenly moot as Lima. What it means is really to give up, give up your lifestyle, give up your way of seeing things give up whatever any ideas that you had previously about about how you want to live and how you want to view things give that up submissively to be more like what he was Elisa twisted them. This is the concept of this is not to say Salam is not a part of a no it is you go and you visit and Charlaine Medina County and you stand in front of the
older, and you'll be it'll be a very beautiful moment for you and you'll say Santa Monica rasool Allah, and you'll know that he that's where his grave is. And so now I'm gonna kill a bucket of Santa Monica, you mix it up to the people and you don't just sit up in your salad every day, you got to do it every day multiple times and filarmonica you NW but suddenly muda stream has different
suddenly with the stream doesn't mean that
the stream is for you to give something up submissively it comes from them the root word of Islam not salaam, they are different, different roots altogether. It's a very, it's a very important part of understanding this idea. This idea that we hear every single Friday, we hear it all the time he's a part of our daily everyone knows this idea very few know where it is even less know why it is where it is in the Quran. And even less know what he's trying to say
in Hola Hola, it could also Lunarlon maybe in indeed Allah in his in his angels have that connection with the Prophet celestun If you don't understand that broader way of looking at it. So those who believe, strengthen that connection and give up what is you have submissively to him so I sent him give it up. Just let go. Whatever it is you're holding on to that is not how he would do things. So I sent him not how he would think about things that how he would go about his life. Just let it go. Don't fight it, just let it go and submit and submit to His way at least because it's his way because because the way Allah subhanaw taala wanted it. Never forget the reason that why it is that
we look at him some advice and the way that we look at him. The reason is because of the beginning of this area in Allah Amara eco Sundome because Allah subhanaw taala has done salah upon the Prophet so I said I'm and commanded This is angels to do the same thing. Because of that we are commanded to connect with him and submissively follow him and give up what it is that we have to what he has. And what he taught him is because Allah subhanaw taala did the first place not because not for any other reason? Not for any other reason. The reason is because Allah subhanaw taala chosen because he gave us to him as the example of a soloist, you need at least one example.
Or to get things right. You need at least one example, with no examples. I don't think there has been
examples in history where practically things worked out with no examples from the first time. I don't think it ever happened tries to be at least one example, even if it's a wrong example. That's an example.
But the complexities of life, you need at least one good one. One good example to follow and at least so to fulfill that purpose. Being the final one, being the prophet to hide the most holistic lifestyle mean someone who went through all the different changes when you look at other prophets you'll find there are some
There are some very visible
differences. So easily Islam you can't really see him as a father or as a husband, or as a leader. I saw to say I'm a great prophet but he didn't fulfill those roles so it's hard for you to see him doing that. We'll get more Sally Sarah Alia Santos and we couldn't see him in certain parts of his life. Dealing with with with sahab, I mean having people where he was where he was focused on teaching, or focused on, on educating our audience, I spent all his time basically in a tug of war, either withdrawn or the money, it's about you the whole time. It was just conflict. There was very little building, at the end of the day, he did not have a country.
When you look at so Damon and DOE Dali Muslim, you cannot see them as struggling individuals in a society. People can't find enough money to feed people in their house. You can't see them like that. And so on and so forth. As you take on examples, you'll find there's something missing feeds profit, something just not not there. The probably the most holistic, similar to him. So let me zoom, who do you think Ibrahim on Instagram? Who is the prophet so like systems idle? Anyone else told to take a role model he was told what to do? I mean letter, Ibrahim Hanif, and then you look up to Brahim Ali's. So everyone has an example for us. It's always going to be him salatu salam. And the reason
is because the importance of the aspects of life that are fulfilled with us to have
him be as him being able to continue to perform the way Allah subhanaw taala willed unwanted when things warrick's were extremely difficult to do so on every level, whether physically, financially, socially, or personally, which are the examples that supervisor gave us in terms of awkwardness, distress, and lack of comfortability, or lack of comfort. So in the law home, and that you could do so Lunarlon to be so indeed Allah and His Prophet and his and his angels will send your solos to this prophet. So those who believe follow Allah He do the same. I advise you to do the same. If Allah subhanaw taala is doing this, then you are advised to do the same unless you believe for
somehow that you're better than ALLAH and his and his angels have should have done no, no one no one here thinks that. So unless you do, then follow it but do something more with a limo to sleep. If you look at it in the Lahoma they can tell you so Luna and maybe there's only was a limit when it's asleep. But that makes no sense. How do they give up and stuff that doesn't doesn't work that is specific to us, for us to limit asleep or give up but you have submissively and follow the way that he gave you some Allah hi to you earlier, so I'm using them. So every time you read this, I remind yourself or what this means. First of all, do it verbally. Do it with your tongue say Allahumma
Salli ala Muhammad Ali or sabe Israeli, but then actually think about the meaning lying behind this which has always been there which is the whole point of all of this. You start looking at the examples of fertilizer I remember I remember him standing there on the day of the Confederates alley you saw to some carrying the dirt on his on his shoulder for 15 hours straight working with the people who are digging the Donnie the trench. And then finding out some of them that has been according to law have broken the treaty are going to come from the from the south. I also need to keep the hopes of people high finds find some way to secure Medina before before they die. His fear
for Satan Valleydale the Allahu Anhu in his and intimate drive that he made
to Allah subhanho standing his ground, civilize them, you're ready to fight when needed that Allah subhanaw taala took care of him.
See him somebody says I'm coming home after Yanni long days of long months of jihad. When he comes home all he gets is where's the money? Where's the food? Where's the
right where Why is everyone come home with stuff except you? Everyone seems to come home carrying bags of something and you will come home every time empty. Hi, where is this to work? Why don't you have anything? Right? Having to
having to do something that is hard for him that he doesn't enjoy? You think he enjoyed that like anything? Again? I think sometimes we don't understand at all. Do you think he was happy? So I said I'm coming home with nothing. Do you think he enjoyed it? You think this is optimal? Yeah. And a lifestyle he would like to go home with no food with nothing there very little things sleeping on me it hustling with almost no. Do you think that's what he he's enjoying this? Of course not. There's a choice he had to make so that you and I could never so we could learn because if he had he done it differently, had he live in a higher socioeconomic status. He had more wealth and he used it a bit
more than people wouldn't relate. The people would say well, he did it for the money. Obviously at the end he made a lot of money. Look, he lived a wealthy life. He didn't he had to not do just for in order for Islam to work for a long period of time do. You have to make that choice upon himself some lessons. He wasn't happy. He wasn't happy doing it wasn't helpful for him. It's hard and now the wires are making it harder. Now he's put up with even those who are supposed to support him doing this
It's hard are not supporting him no you have no one to support him no one supports him on what he's doing nowadays.
And he stuck to it anyway.
Trying to keep the the social fabric of Medina together trying to stop the gossip and stop the the rumors just a while ago they were speaking of Ayesha a lot of rumors are being moved. And now he's being commanded by Allah to marry Zainab
and Xena was the ex wife of zayde It's not his son but it's Jani is the closest thing he has to a son. What are the arrows gonna say about is this is gonna look really bad. Really bad. He's gonna use this against me they use against Islam later on. Can you see that your understanding of the small little things that we we read his see less and less and let me go through his life. Never really look at them or think about them is he until we read this idea we didn't realize that every day he would go home and people be waiting in front of his door or coming with him asking him to come in sitting around and you have to find some ways to get food made. And then you have to serve
food and they will sit around an hour after food hoping for a conversation. He's been up since what furniture or before your hours and he hasn't he hasn't gone home and sat with his with his family yet hasn't seen his daughter hasn't seen his wife isn't it so to
put up with all of that, and maintain, maintain his character and maintain his any his manners and maintain his relationship with people and do the job and teaching and lead and all of that.
When you look at this surah becomes very clear, you're looking you can see why this is here. Sorry, it was very difficult. It was these are hard things that he had to go through they had to carry out in southern Sudan and we got to see him how he maintained his character throughout the whole thing. Which is which is why why this is here. So a specific meaning is in Allahumma that he could tell you for Lunarlon maybe you will Edina Salalah you are selling with a slim as an eye at the end towards the end of the plaza is not randomly put there.
It's just a random idea that existed because well it sounds similar at the end this Lima Mahina will be you know, it's all the same. So that's why he's there. No, this is that is there for a specific reason. We're being taught something here being given we're being given some given some Yaniv
some guidelines and some bullet points from Allah subhanaw taala that we have to see you have to understand, you have to spend some time contemplating upon what's in it for us. Yeah, you have livina Manu Salawat he was a limitless limitless are a part
of performers. So now upon the prophets, I send them verbally and then perform it upon him practically and submit and sell them to steam and give up what you have and take what he has, and then show you'll be closer to him and show him okay, the I after that. That kind of makes this a bit more. clarifies a lot of the ideas in the livina indeed those who and Allah Allah pseudo those who harm Allah and His Prophet, now Allah subhanho wa Taala cannot be harmed that is obvious and that is clearly understood. So what does that mean? It means a figure of speech harming Allah subhanaw taala is harming the Muslims harming people, it's harming those who should not harm its harm it is going
against his ruling is going against the deen doing something that you shouldn't do that and that includes harming another person. So when anything is given for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala what it means is that is going to help people in a sincere and selfless manner that's what it means Allah subhanaw does not benefit from what you give noisy horn but like you see him as a figure of speech. Because when you're asked to give something for the sake of Allah, or you're you're doing something that's harming Allah, what you're doing is you're harming people and you're harming those those who who you have no right to harm and or you're benefiting those who otherwise would not. You're not
obligated to to benefit or is not self serving to you to benefit them. So in Medina, you do and Allah Allah, so those are harming Allah and His Prophet. What is the example of the Prophet of the harm that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam endure? For example, when they spoke about him?
His marriage to Xena already when they spoke about his marriage to Sophia, because they did because she was from a Jewish background, they spoke of that as well. Or when and or the fact they just stay in his house for longer, or some of them thinking that bad thoughts about about the wives and to do che and otaku, right so we recited the last time talked about last time. These are forms of harm. Those who go ahead and the harm that has been harmed the prophets I send them Lana, whom Allah Who dunya will Akira Allah Subhana Allah has condemned them, they are damned, they're destined to damnation by Allah subhanaw taala in this life and in the vascular Well, I della whom either the
Mahina He has prepared for them a very humiliating punishment.
If it wasn't enough, we recited in the first area, what's best for you and I suddenly realized Salomon Selim Tasleem. That's the best that's in our best interest in terms of, of connection with Allah subhanaw taala and achieving achieving EBIT a goal, then know that the opposite of this is much worse for you to harm for you to cause any harm to him. I don't know
Listen to this and think of why you haven't done that. Okay, okay, let me let me let me challenge that thought you haven't you haven't heard the prophet as i said i've ever All right?
Can you not think of any example
that maybe you did?
Maybe you didn't do it physically, but have it as anything you've done at any point caused any harm to him so I sent them or to Allah subhanaw taala maybe maybe a behavior that you you had that was later on labeled with oh, look what Muslims do and and now Islam is being labeled as something very negative because of a negative thing that you didn't you harmed because the harm you brought harm upon. Again, it's figure of speech, you don't you can't harm Allah, that's what it is. They can't harm him as a figure of speech, you brought on bad consequences. So you brought it on to Allah subhanaw taala. Obviously, you can't do that, literally. So it's a figure of speech. And obviously
the same thing goes with the Prophet. So I said, because he's not here. But maybe, maybe it's an example and of course, a lot of examples in the Quran. But I just said, well, Lithuania, doing them and doing Allah for Allah, I do it already and don't curse idols. That's what the client says, Do not curse idols. Why? Because then those who love these idols will curse Allah
without knowledge because you curse their Lord so the curse yours. The prophets I'm teaches us Yanni, Malinois Julius who about who wish to boom, what is the worst manner of a horrible thing? If for someone to curse his own father in his own mother? thing? Yes. A little menu about who is a boom Oh, who would do this? No one does this, of course rare for us. I don't know. I've seen it more often than I would like to admit. But that guy was new. Never do that. Because that's your heritage. That's your Yaniv your lineage. Filing assume
about who we are so Boomer, Rajouri fear so bumo. me someone will come in, you'll curse the father of a president. So that person will curse his father back?
Are you saying the example. So harm Islamically speaking is not only direct forms of it, it's also indirect forms of it. So indeed, Nelson today again, Indeed, those who harm Allah and His Prophet, Allah has cursed them as damned him in this life and in the Hereafter, and he has prepared for them a very humiliating punishment. Now we should fear a bit. It always bothers me. When you hear on if punishment, and you're like, oh, that doesn't apply to me. So I don't have to get any feel anything bad about this. Almost no, I and the crimes like that, every eye on the Quran can apply to me always. And that's why it's there, or it wouldn't be there. So when you read it, look for what's in
it for you. Look how you can be a part of this. Be very careful. Whether you like it or not, as a Muslim, you walk this earth, and you bring upon the word of Allah subhanho wa taala. When you bring up bring upon the deen of Allah subhanaw taala, you bring upon the Prophet of Allah, Allah Hadees, like this, and then you bring upon them benefit or harm with your behaviors. So you need to do your best, we have to do our best and that's why we have to connect with him. So I said I'm so we can do our best. So we can act in the best way possible to have the best attitude and the best behavior that we possibly can. Because if you harm if you bring harm, then the consequences are very, very
difficult. The final area and we'll start with one after well, Lavina you mean to continue that and those who harmed them? The believers meant men and women, men, you know, men, be radium accessible for no good reason. Meaning this is not payback. This is not retaliation. This is not the sauce, me you're just harming someone for No, it's not a consequence for a mistake that they made, you're not getting anything, you're getting him accessible. So they did nothing to deserve this at all for the value that they are carrying upon themselves, Bhutan and where Islam will be in turn.
There's something called libre. And there's something called Bhutan. Libre is when I talk and I talked about you behind your back about something that you actually did. You did something wrong and I caught you. And I always tell my friend he didn't either this you can you believe it? Like that's libre, you actually did it. So I'm not lying. And that's of course is like eating the flesh of a dead of his of his dead corpse. So it's a disgusting idea and is haram on every level and available. Now if I talk to you about something he did that he didn't do, like I say, Oh, he did this and I'm just making it up. That's called button. And that's what they did towards I shall be Allah whiner.
And here if I'm done, and this is done this at the same level, they are carrying upon themselves done. And they're doing something that has no justification for at all. What if men will be in a very clear level of sin, those who have harmed those who harmed the believers, not even men or women, with no good reason with no proper justification that they're carrying upon themselves, a little button. They are breaking every rule, meaning morally they have sunk. They have fallen to the lowest of the lows and the they're carrying a very clear level of sin or a clear amount of sin if men will Bina.
No one can help you
Once you've crossed that red line,
you know that there's a red line. There's two red lines, there is Schoodic do not perform shook ever. Just don't do shirk make sure that's very clear to you what it means make sure you understand though Hain within it's very tiny but it's deep essence of the meaning so that you can maintain the weight of the one the belief in the Oneness of Allah. So by understanding who Allah subhanaw taala is with the deity is what that means and maintaining that. And the other red line is do not harm.
Don't harm people, whether it's direct or indirect, be very, very careful. You may not do good, but do not do harm. And the Prophet SAW Selim explained that many many times.
He said, I need your help illuminate in Minko alayhi salatu salam in the nasty sadaqa everyone owes sadaqa in life, but you got to fit Allah What if I have nothing
for Bata America with an ROV when are you going to learn Korea South of command what is good and yeah I need discouraged what is not for call if I stop there, I can't do that. Even I am so ignorant. And I am so I'm just I'm horrible. I don't know how to speak I don't know how to communicate. I am not the right person to do that. But God had to assume oh coffee, what do you would
then smile at people? But God LM up I can't even do that I am
now some people can remember I had a friend of mine. And his father used to come to the message all the time. And I knew his father very nice man. But I never ever saw his father smile in my life ever. And I saw him every day it was shake his hand and and never once did he ever crack a smile not once. So I told my friend like oh, I want to come over one day I just want to go and visit like I just very interested. So I visited and the father was very young and he was very excited. He was bringing the food and he never smiled once. Throughout the whole time. I was watching him like it was very awkward and weird. Like I was looking at the guy as he was serving the food and he was
having everyone in and it was very enthusiastic about it. But he never smiled once and asked him it was a
Why don't you smile?
He said I don't know this is how I am nice Tao Allah Subhan Allah created me I just don't have much of a never asked his wife is overly difficult. Yeah, he just doesn't really show much emotion and he just doesn't really smile. Some people just don't have that for whatever capacity 100 I don't think he probably won't meet people like that. But I remember I need for a very long time just just not as Miley person was very weird because we were talking pinging them. You never know. Is he happy? Is he upset easy? Because there's no emotions for colloca Fuka honey nurses
then just don't hurt people. That's just don't don't cause harm. Because once you cause harm, you're on your own. You can come and ask me for a veterinarian what to do. I can you know act like I know that I know nothing. I know nothing. You cannot tell me what to do with Allah subhanaw taala Forgive me will not forgive me. How will I get this? I don't know. No one knows. You made a mistake. You harmed someone. Now now you have to deal with it. Now to find some way to get that person to forgive you. You have to find some way to make it up to them. You make succeed you may not succeed Allah may intervene on your behalf he may not you may have enough has enough to make up for this and have
enough left to go to gender. You may not I don't know. And no one knows. Because it's harm. Just don't harm if you want to be safe human piano. You make sure these two things you got make sure Lena Hale Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah has made me maintain there's no Shut up you still believe and that you did not harm people. And I guarantee you you'll be soaring ahead of everyone. Even those who thought were doing so much good, but they may have done a lot of good but they did a lot of harm as well. And that harm is going to hold them back for a long time until the until it's sorted out. It all has to be sorted out. So be very very careful of harm. That's why in the medina you're doing
Allah Allah so those who harm Allah and His Prophet, and the meaning that will move me to and those who harm the believers men or women, they're carrying their key carrying a level of of Yanni of ethical problems that they can't it's too much there's no justification for this. There's no way for us to explain it. And it's clear sin just don't do it is be very careful. Donnie, we forget that sometimes you think Allah says Allah forgive everything except shirk. Yeah, he'll forgive everything. But what about those who harm see that we forget that he can't, he won't forgive he can he can. He can do anything he wants subhanaw taala but he won't forgive. You're part of a
mistreatment. If I come and I hit my brother here. And I say y'all Forgive me reading my brother He may forgive me but the question is Did Did he do you forgive me if you didn't forgive me that I'm not off the hook until you do? Allah Subhanallah is very helpful Rahim is very merciful, but human beings are not. Human beings are very stingy with their with their emotions and their their liabilities and what's theirs. There's a last
verse that is a part of the last chapter of the sword before the finale before the summary of the sword always comes next time inshallah. So there's the last command that he was given us a lesson there the law
asked awkward and difficult and uncomfortable Katyayani command that will come in sooner regarding any of the issues that were discussed as here were assigned and shall explain it before before the competition yeah you and maybe you equally as well jika webinar tick

Messenger Oh prophet of Allah, tell your wives, and your daughters when he says mean and all the women believers. So as you can see now why that's there because the I had before or last time we're talking specifically about his wife is Celeste. And if you remember Ultimune no matter and
that was specific to his wives here the clarification has been me that this the next command is not just for your wives or guests for your daughters. But however for all Muslim women and believing women of Islam. You do need an ally in min jewelry hint for them to bring closer to themselves or to dress with jalebi. But now the word Baba Amr. And there are all three different words that exist in the Quran that are important to understand, the word hijab is the umbrella word, it is the concept of there being a barrier between the eyesight of one gender to the body, the physical
appearance of the opposite. So it exists for men and it exists for women. So it's for both, we're not allowed to walk around any fully nude either. So but just the level of how we dress is different to the one of that of the opposite gender, but the word hijab is the umbrella word that has that concept of a barrier existing a physical one, in terms of what we can see what we can't came out is the what it means in Arabic is the cover of the head. And the source of the note will your webinar be hamari henna, Allah Gob NJBIZ this area here so this is called the Jade so what the Quran is saying is they should take their cream out of the cover of their head, and they should cover the
opening that is of their necks and their bosom jalebi jilbab is also the cover of a head but it's a cover of the head that sometimes you'll see your if you've ever seen your mother or your grandmother sent up for prayer, they have this piece of this huge piece of cloth it just has an opening for the head, right and then it just goes down basically. So that's what a jilbab was, was called back then. So as your verb is the same concept as a cover of the head that will go beyond just the the neck and the ears It will cover a bit more so cover the back and cover the front part of the body. So jilbab also is not just a cover of the head, it's also a cover of of the body. So you didn't even really
hit them in July BBN for them to dress with jelibean to address with clothing that will cover their heads and cover their body so that it cannot be seen that he can add in a yarn this is better for them to be known. Known as what's known as women of piety women of Islam, women who have made a choice to live in a certain way for now you often refer to your thing and then less harm will come their way and what form wellness come their way. When when when they dress like that. It is also a statement. So just like for me, I'll give you an example this is sort of understood also on demand on the male side as well. Looking like this comes with a tax statement like looking like this
throughout your life we there's if you don't live nor you don't go through with a normal life. You have a lot here and you're there's something people make assumptions and it comes you pay a certain price for being like that. But it's the price that you want to pay not the one that you don't want to pay me the other that you get for this is the other that you you're okay accepting me if someone discriminates against you because you're a Muslim or they are they make assumptions about you because you're a committed Muslim. That's the type of either that you're okay accepting but the other type of other you don't get meaning I can guarantee you throughout my 32 years of life no
woman a woman has ever hit on me ever in like every the way you look your walk is impossible you the moment they look at you look at it.
This is not to proceed, they look for someone else. So this comes with also a statement that this is how I think this is how you behave. So people are less likely to ever come your way because you just you're looking in a certain way. The same thing goes 90 for the sisters it's exact same thing when she dresses in a certain way. She is a statement that is made that
I'm not open to certain,
just certain thoughts or certain ways of life, and it's easier, she may have other things. She may get other from a different perspective, meaning she's a hijab, you so people will say something, or make a comment or to make an assumption, but that's other that we accept as Muslims because it's we're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, you're getting a massive, massive amounts of audio. And this is why it's, that's why it's good to have. you're submitting when it's hard, there's going to be other it's going to be difficult, but you get a lot of pleasure. But the other is what you will have less of, I'm not saying that someone who looks like this will not get no, you may get
it everyone's but it's less, it's way less is guaranteed, it will be less because it puts a statement, that same thing goes for for a sister who you Dineen ally in Maine, JBB hint when they will dress in a certain way, looking in a certain way, keeping the job. So they're covering the adornments of the physical appearance, less likely to get that type of other, less likely to be hit on in that very, yeah, I need in suggestive way that Islamically does not does not align with Islamic values and Islamic understandings. But there'll be other other, that is not a problem. Or it is a problem, but not in what we're talking about. In the context that I'm trying to explain to you.
Me that is something that comes with the it comes with the whole package, meaning as a Muslim, sometimes you're going to be an during the anti discrimination and mistreatment but all the Muslims before you have any sort of SLAM didn't Sahaba. So you're just
90, I encourage you to if it's not too horrible, like if it's just a word, because sometimes you get the word the racist comment or someone kind of remind yourself, this is something similar to what the Sahaba went through. It'll give you some some comfort at the moment that this is probably what they felt back in the day when they were embracing the deen and No, everyone was against them, but it dedicated in Europe know that it's better for them to be known as women of pedophilia. And so they will not be they'll be less likely to be harmed in that context, the context of what he's talking about, meaning they're suggesting a statement of piety and that means those who don't have
it will be less likely to harm them just like it works for men, and it works for men as well. What can is
part of that culture?
Yeah, it's funny. So I'll explain again, hijab is the umbrella word of a barrier between the eyesight of one gender and the physical appearance of the other came out is when you cover the head and you cover it the upper part of the body engine, Babbage will cover a bit more what is
agreed upon, within all form without had been beyond the form of that I had with almost no, I need the difference of opinion whatsoever. Back in the day, or today, as far as I know, in terms of people who have knowledge that when Islam are are required to cover is everything but their face and their hands. And for some of them have their feet as well, meaning some of them there is a difference of opinion in terms of having do they have to cover their feet or not. So some of them say yes, and some of them say no. But besides that, there's really no difference of opinion mean there is no Islamically valid opinion that says it's okay for them not to wear their hijab is just
just not there. We use the word hijab to cover the head. That's our terminology today. The Quran doesn't use that terminology, because the US came out and YouTube instead. But we just saw just as just a difference of terminology here that we're talking about. When you say so saying jilbab is a part of the culture. Yeah, well, YouTube is not really the thing. I mean, it's not just wearing that long. It's just the concept of covering the head and covering the physical appearance, do that with whatever you want to do that with by whatever piece of cloth that has whatever color, whatever, whatever you want to just do that it's not important that it looks the way I explained a second ago,
it's just the concept itself has to be maintained. There's really no difference of opinion regarding the concept itself. I think that's important. I think I have talked about this a number of times before. I don't think that as Muslim men in the West, we should be talking about this anymore. I don't talk about this specifically in places where there are any 100 other suits for a couple sisters stay with us. But usually there's no sisters here. So I talked about this, but I don't I don't usually do it. I think that this concept of hijab that is a very, very clear Quranic and prophetic tradition and command that Allah subhanaw has given this has to be done by Muslim women,
they have to they have to talk about this themselves. Because it's becoming more of a of a identity, Quarrel and fight and struggle that is a command that we're trying to keep maintain within our within our OMA and it's been used to label people and it's harming people. So it's becoming a bigger, bigger issue, a bigger issue than it used to be. And we have to be a bit more aware as Muslim and how we're going to deal with this. And I advise you to be a bit more sensitive towards you know, how you want to word these issues and I don't think you should be the person giving any hope or nausea or any regarding this specific issue, maybe leave that to someone else. Maybe any for
your daughter, and when you do it for your daughter you have to be very smart and how you're gonna do it as well. I think there's more. There's more to it than just us because we don't go through it. I don't understand how if we don't go through it as Muslim men, how is it that we find it easy to go ahead and start preaching to those that they have to do it even though we're not doing so this is Muslim? A Muslim woman is more is just responsible for
Islam as well as as I am. So maybe that part of it, she will carry in terms of, of giving the nausea and we take care of certain things in terms of talking to young men in terms of it's okay for them to do what's not okay for them that they find themselves more pulled to do than a Muslim young Muslim woman fight would find herself pulled to do. So I think these gender differences are important that they're addressed in a gender sensitive way. And especially in the in the place and time that we're living in where these issues are becoming more and more sensitive. From a from a cultural perspective on a larger society, scale, meaning living in Canada, these are issues are very
delicate, we are very smart and how we're going to continue talking about no point are the fundamentals of this, obviously, I'm going to be, you know, given up or sold out, or we're not gonna cave in and say this no longer No, it is what it is, this is what it is. Isn't this the whole point of it? So it doesn't have to be comfortable. You don't have to like this doesn't have to be something that you find totally easy. I'm fine with it. No, you don't have to be, but it is what the dean is. It is that's the whole point is that yes, it may not be fun, may not be easy, but that's what Allah subhanaw taala commanded us to do. So we'll do it. And we're gonna find a way to do it.
That makes it as easy as possible. We're gonna find Yanni that we go out of our way to find ways to make this transition for our Muslim youth whether whether male or female, to follow these commands and stick to them. But this is what the Yanni says we'll end with number 59. Next time we started basing the finale or the summary or the final
chapter of fluid hub that kind of summarizes everything we talked about. And then another area that you've heard many, many times before, but never knew the context you'll find out the context of onion you'll have a comprehension of it that is much more deeper than everyone around you does because you know in which suitor was it came and what Dustin was talking about and with us apocalyptic Shinola
or some of the holiday season I'm humbled and while early he was amused
