It is a pillar to stand within a prayer. And so long as you're able to stand, it is not sufficient, it is not acceptable for you to sit down and pray. And so if you have that five minute gap, and you can put a prayer mat out and pray wherever you pray, so long as you can pray standing, then you must do so under is not sufficient to sit down and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Okay, inshallah we'll go on to our next caller, Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Question. Yeah, go ahead. My question is that somebody recently said to me, that you say la ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasul Allah, because you're mentioning Allah and Prophet Muhammad together. And that's the reason why Allah, then clarity on that. And then my second question is that I was married abroad in Pakistan. And I divorced my husband back in UK because he was very abusive. So I've had the marriage in Pakistan, I've had my luck
here in London, am I allowed to remarry?
I'm under like a proposal. Am I really married or do I need my credit?
Any questions? Okay.
So, I have two questions. The first question is the statement laid out in the law, Mohammed rasulillah. She heard that someone said that you shouldn't
say this because it's placing a lot and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
on one platform or something to this extent, I think perhaps that the person that mentioned this to you was getting slightly confused over the issue. When you say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah what you're saying is that a man has the right to be worshipped, except Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah. So within that statement, within and of itself, you're not placing the two on an equal platform or equal level, because of even the meaning of what you're saying. That one is, Allah subhana wa Taala, who has the right to be worshipped alone without any partner, and the other is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is a slave and
messenger of Allah. Perhaps what the person has referred to is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would prohibit and forbid people to do and that is that they would sometimes say Masha Allah who worshiped that which allow build and what you will or messenger of Allah. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, Have you made me a partner to Allah, rather say Masha Allah Who was that which Allah alone wills. And so this is what we should avoid doing. It is not allowed for us to do that you place the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the level with a lot in terms of you give him the abilities and the powers and the attributes that belong to Allah alone. So a lot
of the will is alone, the one who creates and the one who provides and the one who gives life and death. If you were to give some of these attributes, then to any person be that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or other than Him that will then delve into the realm of shirk. However, if it is just a statement, it doesn't mean that you can't mention the two in a single sentence or a single statement, so long as you avoid making any one a partner with a lot subhanho wa Taala. And a lot knows best. In terms of the second question with regards to marriage and that you had a divorce. I think that you're referring to a
divorce, that is an Islamic divorce. Once you have a divorce and you're divorced within the Sharia, then you're able to go and marry so long as there is the period has been completed. So you wait for there in that period. And then once that period, that waiting period has elapsed, then you are free to go and marry again and ask Allah subhana wa tada that he makes your affairs easy, and that he makes the affairs of our brothers and sisters easy as well. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Okay, inshallah we'll go on to our next question. Our next viewer Salam Alikum rahmatullah wa barakato.
of free questions. My first form is a lot.
A lot of times, I don't say,
five minutes or 10 minutes, and then they're pretty
that what happens. And my second question is,
issue companies, if they make shoes is different animal lovers, like pig lover, but they don't know what she's made with. Are they allowed to wear? And my third question is,
tell us if you're planning to record law. But then I like coffee, probably like 10 to 10 degrees or something like that. But then the room that you're pregnant is very small, and then you haven't got like you have, but the pain is very small and you're not and you can't like
Step 10 degrees, that to the exact point is still on. Okay.
Questions? Okay, so the brother had three questions. Number one is, if you're praying and you pray, perhaps five or 10 minutes late, does that make you a disbeliever? Firstly, as it's always advised by our scholars, and it's something very important for us to bear in mind is that this issue of casting someone as a disputed evil, even using this term, that such and such an action makes a person a disbeliever. And you give them them the rulings of a disbeliever, and so on, this is a very dangerous issue. And it's something which a person shouldn't speak about, or take very lightly. It is something which has a lot of rulings attached to it, and it is extremely grave. And so perhaps a
better way to frame the question is, is this an act of disbelief? Is this something which is a major sin? and so on? So that you don't?
You don't apply that ruling on an individual? But in terms of this question, it depends on what you mean by five or 10 minutes late. If, for example you're talking about from the other time, then as we know that there is a starting time and an end time for each and every single prep, and so long as you pray within that, within that time period of the prayer than your prayer is correct, and your prayer is correct, and inshallah it is valid, and there is no problem with the inshallah with Tyler. However, if for example, you've elapsed that prayer times, the time of Lord finishes, and the time of Russell has now begun, and you haven't prayed. And so the prayer time goes on 510 minutes after
that, then it would depend on what reason you have, if you have a valid excuse, then inshallah, that is okay, on the last panel, Darla will forgive you a new prayer is acceptable. If you haven't, you don't have a valid excuse, then you have committed a sin, it is not an act of disbelief. It is not something which takes a positive person outside of the fold of Islam, but it is a sin for denying the prayer outside of his time without any valid reason. So therefore, as with every sin, you make Toba, you repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada, that he forgives all of our sins, and he accepts our tober. In terms of the second question shoes that are made out of
pig leather, the scholars have mentioned that obviously, within our religion, the pig is considered to be an animal, which is impure. And so therefore, anything which is made of a pig, in terms of its leather, in terms of its skin being used as leather, and so on, and so forth, it must be avoided. It's not allowed for you to wear, be the shoes, be the in clothing, be the in jackets, and so on and so forth, handbags, and everything else that a person would use. So therefore, if you're not come to a scenario where there's a range of shoes, and there is big leather, but the person that produced those shoes, doesn't know where the pink leather was, was used, and they can't give you an
indication as to what products have big leather or not, then my advice would simply be to avoid all of them just to remain on the safe side so that you don't fall into that that area of prohibition. And you find another shoe manufacturer or another company than a shallow doesn't use pig leather and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. In terms of your third and final question with regards to the problem. This is often a case that faces many people, that you go and pray. And maybe for example, in the place that you're praying, you can't face either the Qibla directly, because of the way that the room is the room that you have to maneuver within that space. Or perhaps for example, you
prayed. And then after the prayer, you find out that the table is actually a few degrees to the right and to the left. What is the ruling of this? The ruling is that when you face the Qibla you're facing a direction you're not supposed to face the curb pinpoint. Meaning that if you were to draw a line from yourself here in the UK, London, Birmingham, Manchester, wherever you are, and you were to draw a line all the way to Mecca to the curb, you wouldn't hit the curb. Bullseye, you wouldn't be pinpointing the curb. What you do is you face the direction of the karma and that's what a loss of Paradise says in the Quran for one luigia comm shutaura then turn your faces towards this direction.
So if for example you are in Masjid al Haram, you're actually in Mecca in Masjid al Haram. Then you must face the Kaaba and you must pinpoint the Kaaba because that is your direction outside of Mr. hora, but within Makkah, you face the masjid, outside of Mecca. But within, for example, the Arabian Peninsula or within the area you face Mecca, and that obviously goes for the rest of the world as well that you're facing the direction of the city of Mecca, or as close as you can get to that. So therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also it is authentically reported on him that he said, I look at blood to my brain and mush up one mockery. But he was obviously speaking about the
city of Medina, the Qibla is between the East and the West, meaning that so long as you're facing that general direction, it is a matter of few a few degrees off to the right or a few degrees off to the left. And so one of the mistakes is that sometimes we find that we're off by a few degrees, or that someone else that is praying is off by a few degrees and we make them repeat the prayer we say that the prayer is invalid. Now the whole point of the Qibla is you face the direction
Not that you have to pinpoint the Kaaba unless you're actually praying within the masjid vicinity and the loss apparently what Allah knows best. Okay, inshallah we'll go on to our next caller salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
I've got two questions related to the same situation. And you know, through women's monthly cycle I just want you to know, I will allow you to recite the Quran or like because we've got women classes very cool and they say that he is okay you can have wear gloves and you know, you can like learn the Quran on the sea, you know, learning the meanings word by word. Okay? And the second is that I teach my own kids, and one of them Mashallah, he's like, 30, you know, 32 and I was wondering, how can I, you know, teach him because in my mind, I think that is not allowed. You're not allowed to recite the crown when you're on a monthly cycle, but then I will teach us that noise. Okay.
So, two questions on a similar topic, and both of them are referring to or relating to the monthly cycle that she goes on, and therefore is allowed for her number one to recite the Quran, what is not allowed for you to do on the monthly cycle, miniconda monthly cycle or you're in a state of major purification, or emerging purity is number one to touch the Quran, number one to touch the Quran. And that means with the physical hand, number two, the prayer number three to fast number four, to make power, number five to go and sit in the masjid, so long as you avoid these issues in sha Allah, everything else that you can do in terms of just reciting the Quran, from memory then inshallah that
is allowed because it is reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam currently adequate Allah, Allah, Jamelia, Yanni, that he would constantly remember a lot upon all of his different situations that he would go through in his daily life, one of them would obviously be a state of which will make impurity. And so the scholars say that from the vicar of Allah from the remembrance of Allah, the greatest form of remembrance of Allah is the recitation of the Quran. Another distinction that you need to also make here is what it means to recite the Quran or to touch the Quran touching on is basically the actual Quran, the actual mussaf, that is all in Arabic. And so
there is no English, there's no translation, there's no Tafseer, none of that is included, it is just the concern. If, for example, you're studying a Tafseer book, then it is allowed for you to touch the book, even though it has verses of the Quran within it, because that is not called the Quran is called a book of Tafseer. Likewise, if you'd had a translation of the Quran in English, or do Somali, whatever language to touch that is also allowed, because that, again, is not an it is a book that has canonic verses, but it is primarily the translation of the meanings of those verses. And so therefore, you must also make this distinction. So if, for example, you're studying the
actual art itself, and you need to do this for your revision, and so on, then I would say recite from memory without touching upon art, if you must touch the plant, turn over a page or whatever, then use gloves or use some type of cloth so that you don't touch it with your bare hands. And the scholars say that if for example, a person needs to do this, they're memorizing upon understanding the Quran. So as part of their studies, they need to do this there inshallah, in that situation, there is no harm and it is allowed. And that would obviously then also answer your second question with regards to you teaching your own children, because that too, would fall within that scope.
Perhaps as the child if they're using the Quran as the child to turn the pages on hold on answer that you don't need to do. So if you need to point to use a pen or a pencil or something that you can point with without having to touch on it itself. And because you're actually touching the phone and it's done for educational purposes, then inshallah that too is also allowed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Okay, shall we go on to our next viewer? Solomonic. Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
I was just wondering how you forget to pray.
How can you make up for your prayer? Okay. sokolova so the question is asking what the viewers asking concerning the person who forgets to pray. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith Manama on Salat in Odessa, felice Alia, either the camera that if a person over sleeps on a prayer, or they forget about your prayer, they let them pray when they remember. So for example, you take that first scenario person's asleep, and they put on the alarm clock, and they tried their best to wake up but they overslept. They didn't hear the alarm clock and so on. And so they overslept and they missed the prayer. Or, for example, a person is at work, they're out and
about and for whatever reason, they genuinely forget the time of the prayer, not that they feign ignorance that they actually secretly know that it's time to
Pray, but they just pretend that they don't know. They genuinely forget that it is the time to pray that all they simply do is pray as soon as they remember. So if for example, when you wake up you realize that you've missed facial or another prayer you pray, if for example you forgotten but then someone reminds you or you remember, when you pray as soon as you are able to and that is in sha Allah, okay? And we know in our religion, that anything that you do for a genuine reason like forgetfulness, like a mistake, like for example, when you oversleep, and so on, these things are pardoned within our Sridhar and Allah subhanho wa Taala out of his mercy, his abundant mercy subhana
wa Taala has forgiven these types of shortcomings. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is a larger region that he gives us the ability to pray on time and to offer our prayers correctly. I mean, okay, Shalom and go to our next viewer salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
I'm wondering, Ramadan Vidya.
Okay, go ahead. Yeah. I'm wondering about Ramadan Vidya. My wife couldn't, couldn't fast two days of Ramadan.
What? Yeah. So So How shall we pay for that two days? She didn't have us because she was ill or she was traveling or if she she is pregnant, or she was pregnant. She was pregnant. Yeah. Okay, so the last question.
Yep. Okay, so there was nothing concerning paying an expansion, feed there for the month of Ramadan, his wife was pregnant, and so she was unable to fast. If, for example, you're talking about the previous Ramadan. And so this Ramadan has still yet to come. And so she has, I think you said it is two days that she needs to make up, then I would advise that she just makes up those two days, as soon as she can. She doesn't pay a fifth year, she doesn't pay any type of expiation or feed any poor people or anything like this. She just simply fasts, those two days that she missed. And so if she does this inshallah, then that is sufficient for her because she had a valid excuse. So we know
from our shot of the law, we're unhappy that when she would miss days, from the month of Ramadan, because of her monthly cycle, I will moderate the Allahu Allah what she would do was that she would make up those fast but she would make them up just prior Oh, just before the next Ramadan meaning in the month of charbon, just prior to the Ramadan, so she has plenty of time yet, Mashallah, she has another two or three months or so, to make up those days and inshallah that is what she should do. If it is, for example, something which she is unable to do, like physical issues, unable to fast maybe perhaps, for some other reason, maybe she's ill or whatever valid reasons she has, and she is
physically unable to fast then now she can instead go to the expiation which is feeding poor people, you feed one per person per day. So for every day that she missed two days, you feed one poor person a meal, and that is inshallah you expiation, but obviously the first and most preferable thing that she should do is make up those days by fasting them again. And Allah subhana wa Taala knows best. Okay, Shalom and go on to our next viewer, Santa Monica, Mohammed Allahu wa barakaatuh
alaikum Salaam Go ahead.
Well, a coma. Sam. I just wanted to ask Brother, you know, when you're praying for Allah, and you need to refer to how one can you can you read it again for your additional surah?
COVID that question again for me, please.
Yeah, and you need to refer to
again, for your additional service. Okay. Okay. I understand
your question. So the brothers asking concerning, if a person is pregnant, they recite Surah Fatiha, then for the additional surah can they recite Surah Fatiha again, to the best of my knowledge this isn't mentioned as something that should be done by any of the scholars of Islam. And so, it is probably something that should be avoided. Surah Fatiha is a pillar of of the recorded pillar of the play which you must do. Then the other sort of that you recite is something which is a recommended act something which you should do, but it shouldn't be sort of to Fatiha again because that is the pillar part. And so you recite another surah of the Quran or whatever it is that you have memorized
and Allah knows best. Okay, shall we go on to our next caller? Solomonic Muhammad Allah
said Mr. alikum.
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala. So ahead,
please, after recording my first question, I don't have time for one question, I'm afraid.
Okay. My question is, he says,
if he were to select to do ma, ma ma ma is on
commercial to make laflife you have to sit back and listen to them. Okay.
Sorry, we don't have time for more for your other questions. So the brothers asked me if you call for SWAT Juma and the mom is making the hotel delivering the hotbar Do you have to pay to summarize or do you just sit down? It is authentic to reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would order the companions and so therefore it is something which you should do you must do that when you enter into the masjid before Salatu. Juma even if the Imam is delivering the hotbar up to Sooners, and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on one occasion when he was delivering the hotbar one of the companions came in and he sat down and so the profits on a lot while he was
selling within his hotbar he said to him, stand up and pray and make them quick, meaning that you offer those two Sooners but play them quickly. Don't delay them, don't prolong them. Don't recite like a long surah within them. Pray them as quickly as you can. Because obviously the most important aspect of the Juma prayer is to listen to the sermon, the hotbed the reminder that the Imam is giving. However, at the same time, you shouldn't sit down in the masjid until you've prayed to records. And so therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established this principle for us. So if you enter into the masjid, you see that the Imam is delivering the hotbar then what you do is
you pray those two records as quickly as you can, meaning don't recite Baccarat, rollem surah, recite as quickly as you can finish those two records as quickly as you can. And then inshallah, after that, you will be able to, you'll be able to sit down and listen to the hotbar and Allah knows best. And with that we come to the end of this episode of Islamic desert Milan, Iran was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
