00:00:23--> 00:01:07

Salam alaykum. Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh everyone welcome back to our weekly live streams. Some of our regular q&a viewers might be a little bit confused as to maybe the poster that we were that we put out. But anyone new here welcome. We do normally hold weekly q&a is with Chicago nadwi hosted by SLM Institute and these Q and A's are usually every Thursday 6pm BST until 630. But given the first day, they would hedger and how important these first 10 days are, we thought, for today in sha Allah, we will extend our q&a session. So we'll have a reminder from Chicago from from 6680. And then in sha Allah, we will take our questions from 630 to seven. Be that questions about hydrogen

00:01:07--> 00:01:41

questions about the Opia questions about the ledger or just general questions that you have in sha Allah that I'll be fitting for a 30 minute q&a will take them in sha Allah. But as I said, hamdulillah we're very lucky to be within these we've we've we're very lucky to have been able to be in the first day of the first 10 days of the kgr Hamdulillah. So sure, if you can in sha Allah give us maybe a bit of a reminder of why these days are important and how we can best make use of them in sha Allah and then soon afterwards, we will take any questions people have

00:01:45--> 00:01:51

I mean, was laid out was Salam o Allah Rasool E. Mohammed, while early he was here,

00:01:52--> 00:02:43

for I would have been learning shaytani R rajim, Bismillah Herath Manuel Rafi lainnya another Allah Allah fumo hora de ma Hua, working you know, taqwa Milcom. So, my dear brothers and sisters, we should thank Allah subhanaw taala that he has given us this opportunity to remember him in these important days of the hijab, there are very important daily rituals, you have the month of Ramadan, you have lost in nights of Ramadan. Similarly, among the days, the days of do the hijab, they are very, very important especially that 10 days and a young Tishri they are very important days, Allah subhanaw taala had made, you know, these occasions for a purpose. Like you know, a good

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

businessman.

00:02:46--> 00:02:50

They look for the season, you know, what is the good season for the sale and,

00:02:51--> 00:03:11

you know, they're increasing their business, they look for that, and to wait for that, like, for example, here you can see in this country, you know, all the shops, they've got excited, and the peer to peer, you know, for Christmas, for Easter, and also some other occasions, and that's the time when they make so much money.

00:03:12--> 00:03:56

Similarly, Muslim country, for example, Ramadan, or Eid, people make more money to a lot of heartache as people can not stay with the same spirit all the year. And you know, I like the one who created us he knows he's the best he knows there is to that why he made you know, all of these different you know, occasions so people get ready for that and they use it as best possible but you only do this if you really have some concern. Like you know, Christmas comes to only those people make money who are business, but other people don't make you know, money actually for them Christmas so other days, they are the same thing. So similarly if people are concerned, they want nearness to

00:03:56--> 00:04:13

Allah subhanaw taala they want to go to Paradise, they want their sins to be forgiven, then they wait for days like that, you know the word for Ramadan. The word for the last 10 nights of Ramadan the wait for the the dates that they wait for the RFR the wait for these days

00:04:14--> 00:04:39

and then the prepare for that. So now 100 has come what exactly we need to do you know how we can prepare and how we spend our time. First thing is because these days are very much connected to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam and his life your sniffer is really in all the occasions in his life is not the same all the time it keeps changing.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

You can see his life and it is home. Then you know occasion it comes to when he is measured all the idols. Then one day with his people and they want to celebrate a star or one day moon and another day sun

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

And then he says allow would I fit in I don't love those who disappear. You know is his struggle with these people go on then a time can his life when he has to leave everybody and he said in the MaHA Larrabee, I'm going to do that to my Lord. Then he leaves his family takes his wife, and then he comes to Syria. From there, he moved to Egypt, and from Egypt, to McCallum. Kurama. And there, he had been commanded to sacrifice his son, and that he does, then he's commanded to build a house of Allah subhanaw taala. And then after that, he has been commanded to announce for the height, so you can see really, all these things, keep coming in his life, to already make him concerned and work.

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

Because if for example, if you have

00:05:51--> 00:06:31

you leave your son in Makkah, there's nobody there and you leave and go somewhere to your mind will be there. You're thinking about Allah some water asking him praying, and you don't know what happened to your son, to his mind am busy with Allah subhanaw taala and then he comes in Allah asked him to sacrifice him. So then again, you know, his full attention plus a Hautala did allow ask him to build the house to while building the house, you know, takes time. He's busy all that. It keeps improving and making himself to that how Allah wants us really that, you know, we make it like a project, you work on a project to either you want to see really how it completed. From beginning to

00:06:31--> 00:06:42

the end. Same Ibrahima is run by the project officer to make a nation to make them you know, to make the hospital as a hotel or to or not for the height. And he goes for that from beginning to the end.

00:06:43--> 00:06:58

Same every believer has got a project to make their life to build it to you know, to make it fruitful. So in the Day of Judgment, they can get it. nearness to Allah subhanaw taala. So among those days, these are the important days Atlas hotel has made.

00:06:59--> 00:07:04

They really are very important, because they remind us about the sacrifice of

00:07:06--> 00:07:17

Islam, and that remind us about the house that had been built in McAllen. Kurama. The remind us about the Haji vertebra Hema Islam announced it said he said what are the fineness will hedge

00:07:18--> 00:07:22

this really all these things are very very important

00:07:23--> 00:07:48

in order to adequately Quran keeps reminding me lotta RB Camila Hema it didn't mean love your father Ibrahim so that I want to teach you inshallah today and also next week. Firstly, again, half an hour I'll say something about RF and hold both. And then you have question answer that we need to learn that what is a MILA fever?

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

And why is it important to

00:07:52--> 00:08:17

you when you read the story of Ibrahim, either Melissa, no worries, you always find the word Dean. You know, DNA means the path of obedience of Allah. So that path always had been there. You know, same path for either medicine or the same path for Islam. All the prophets are the path of obedience of Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:19--> 00:08:28

to the path that you walk on to obey Allah, like your prayer fasting is about this all in a partner to obey Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:30--> 00:08:48

so that is very important for our Quran keeps reminding that people must hold fast they they must, you know, follow the deed and Quran say in Edina on Delilah Islam. You know, the Islam submission to this hotel deal is very important. Lacan, Dino Cambodia did the indicates coming.

00:08:49--> 00:09:16

But when Ibrahim Al Islam came, Allah subhanaw taala made a new thing. And that was the Miller within the Dean a new idea came mill mill Luffy Brahim why Mila is needed, you know, ideas and thoughts. When they become movement, then they recombine in a very fast growing, and then they they mobilize everybody. That's very important. You know, it could be possible that I know I write a book

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

and just force an idea. But nothing happened. Like I wrote a book on the women. So it did not go to make much change. But if I'm really serious, what should I do? You know, in the light of, you know, my thoughts and ideas, I make a movement, that how to bring, you know, respect for the women, and how to give them what the Lord has given and they make a movement look really for all the possible way how this can happen. How can we restore the respect for the women in a workforce that has struggled day and night in writing or working day during a no making class who they know is opening the school so it must be for the women and building most

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

For the women, all those things that are movement and I find many people who help me support me to one day, it will be completed that a movement, but generally we don't do this thing. What people do is they have some good idea. They just, you know work on that, but they don't transfer form the idea into movement. Ibrahim Ali Salam is the first person who really made it, you know all the ideas of the religion into movement. And that was Caracas military Brahim to Milla mean, in basically how Dean has been made by the movement by Ibrahim Al Islam. You know, he put life in it, you know. So all those things really deliver same didn't even I've never seen the dean. So Dean is going to

00:10:49--> 00:11:02

worship a lot of Metallica to the teachings of the Prophet. Ibrahim teaches you only worship Allah subhanaw taala of the Prophet Muhammad teaches you unwatchable is how to deal with the same thing, what Ibrahim did he made the deen into a movement

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

what are the really many things many parts of this movement

00:11:11--> 00:11:27

okay. So, what are the main parts of this moment that we have to understand really that what how Ibrahim made the DNI the moment So, the first important entity Brahim did that he based you know he made every believer to think

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

that he realized really

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

evening my son realized that when people you know act upon their religion and

00:11:44--> 00:12:26

you know after a while, the religion because the culture and dies nothing really that no life in the region, it was a culture did lepeltier culture has no life, culture people follow without thinking or understanding like hybrids, hybrids have no life, Ibrahim Al Islam realize if the religion is like that, it will be did it become culture, he was to make it early or with active movement. So, first thing he did, he made based religion on thinking, you know, people should think you know, understand the whole universe, you know, seriously Sun and Moon, you know, stars and all the news around you, you know, how important they are, what they really are, why they are why they are

00:12:26--> 00:13:09

important, you know, how they connect to each other, and how when you turn away from them to Allah subhanaw taala they are not the one that you spend your life for them, they are only to teach you about Allah they only are there to connect with a lot of Motala. So, he really you know, taught this thing and he said very powerful sentence actually the law of gravity in in all these universe whatever the Sun Moon or this big thing, they go to set, they are not going to remain there they are going so no point to them. So he said he Neva Giotto Vijaya Lila the Fatah samovar tea will have the honey fi turn on my face to one who made all these, you know, so that about in a very important

00:13:09--> 00:13:45

reality, but perhaps religion is based in Mila is based on thinking the very important block every cheese think, you know things. Think first. Why are we doing this team? You know why this 10 days of you know, the hedger. Why did Ramadan why we have to do the Quran? Why we have to obey the parent? Why does family life important Islam? Why does the marriage in all this why they're important? You know, don't do anything unless you understand it to, you know, think, understand then defeated to that the first major pillar of Iraq.

00:13:47--> 00:14:05

That was not a free course and definitely thinking man, I lost the Athena Ibrahim, Mohammed Abdullah, we gave you a Rahim, his understanding and thinking before even before that, what roosted when you're thinking is in in harmony with your nature.

00:14:06--> 00:14:46

Everybody think actually, all the scientists or the people aren't believers and believers, everybody thinking, but the real thinking are those you know, thoughts are applied to the nature. If you deviate from your nature, then you're not thinkers. So you know people you know think you know, for the culture, so then they want to promote a certain culture. So that's not a thinking thinking is when is the healthy your nature neutral without causing problems? Milla frittata, Allahu Latif Ultra NASA This is of nature on which Allah created the mind guide. Very important that you know in everything your life really start thinking.

00:14:49--> 00:14:49

I'm so sorry.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Your mic has been messing up a little bit. So I'm just going to turn your video off and we're going to try and just adjust

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

stare in the background if that's okay Insha Allah, it's sometimes it's a little bit more fiddly and it's going loud and quiet. So if you give me one moment in Sharla I'll turn off the mic.

00:15:10--> 00:15:15

I will turn off your video so just give me one moment I'll turn off and Sharla and then we'll try and get that fixed.

00:16:06--> 00:16:14

Jeff if we can just test your mic and if you don't mind, just speaking and we'll see if it's a better volume. Okay, we

00:16:15--> 00:16:26

can go now. Yeah, that sounds good. Okay, Inshallah, we'll stick with this for now and then inshallah hopefully, it will stay like this in sha Allah. If you give me one moment, I'll turn your camera back on

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

Okay, I have my Rahim in what I've been saying is that

00:16:45--> 00:17:20

these days remind us about the mullah Ibrahim alayhis salam, that high Rahim Ali Salam in a murder Mila. And one important pillar the Mila was thinking Ibrahim himself as Rashid. And a rooster means that when people think in harmony, with the nature, that your nature really that worship Allah, to surrender to, if you think are your everything your life that how to, you know, turn towards worship of Allah and obedience, that that is that a great thinking by people use their mind.

00:17:21--> 00:17:44

And brain will lead to build house and buy new cars, you know, find patience in the cloth, and just enjoy the food and eating and drinking. So they are not clever people. That's not your nature, that's not people have been my father. But one day you want to leave all that, to spend all your time in eating, drinking, building the houses, buying the cars, none of them are going to be with you.

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

That's not a natural way

00:17:48--> 00:17:59

to human nature in a way that you you know, do certain things and the remain with you, they make important when you come to a local hotel you become important so that we should focus really

00:18:00--> 00:18:42

on the time that we spent in all these things, earning money and making all those things they can be spending far something more precious. So that you know the very, very importantly that you know understand that, you know that every single moment of my life should be used for the things which are more precious, not something is more in a database that made that thicker in this one time that whenever you make a thicker attack better for Allah subhanaw taala Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La ilaha what Allah what Allah would like to hunt, you get some reward, and the Paradise is written for you to Don't waste your time, you know, keep making all that to the first pillar of Mila Salaam is

00:18:43--> 00:19:25

that people must think must understand really that what is the proper the life why they are there, how their life is passing very quickly, you know, to not something that should be wasted in anything but the hard in a force yourself for the most precious thing. You know, I myself I can see really sometimes my work and filter was done I forced myself and you know, busy sometimes people invite me for the food and this part in that party. But I realized really if I go to the all those parties, that time will be more rested. You know, we can eat wherever we are really the main thing is that it spent your time for things which are more nutritious, the best thing similarly if people annoy you

00:19:25--> 00:19:49

people make you angry, and you start taking revenge and making your time to make up plots against them wasting your time you're getting sin really let them do whatever they like you do your thing. And whatever they harm you. You get rewarded for that and your sins are removed. So this important thing if thinking all the time that's the first pillar Africa hemolysis middle line that people must think

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

and when you think the second thing comes are the honey fi that's the kind of pot of honey yeah means that then you turn away from every

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

thing to Allah subhanaw taala when we think you understand it, nothing is important to you, Oh honey, if that

00:20:06--> 00:20:48

honey, if you turn away from Sun, Moon star, all those things, in all the everything that is glory in this world, you don't like them, because you know how, you know how can pray there, they're not going to last, that nothing is important. In a make your time and wondered people that don't know will die soon, you see really many people who spend time to become important. They're not important, the day the day or the day make them important. They're going to leave behind. You know, if you're a sport, they see that you have big house, the house you want to leave behind in the grave. You don't own the house. If you're a politician, and you spend all your time to become prime minister or

00:20:48--> 00:21:29

minister, or become you know, elected in a consulting and distinct and that people do all dishonesty, one day were to leave behind, even ice weighed all the things that you're going to leave behind. Don't worry, don't turn to them. Turn away from this honey fear, turning away from everything to death Atlas portal and then Alison Tara pillory submission to Allah, the surrender tours Hautala don't surrender to anybody just, you know, become his slave. You know, whatever he said, do it. And he was the best person in slavery, that were commanded him to slaughter his son, he did it. Whatever Allah commanded him, he never hesitated. And he never question to that to the third

00:21:29--> 00:22:11

pillar for me laughable a medicinal that you know, people must have for submission to Allah subhanaw taala. And the fourth one is that it don't make any shake, miss it never give any importance to anything, which becomes equal to the importance of Allah, Allah, the nothing should be everything should be sacrificed for the sake of Allah. And a lot of other a lot of videos should never be sacrificed for anything is that are you going to have, you know, these days of sacrifice that I'll inshallah talk, you know, next to talk the importance of dirt and DFR here, just I want to remind you, that what really is are the, you know, the pillars of Islam,

00:22:12--> 00:22:53

two distinctly murders, you know, either either pillar to fasting in thinking that you can Rashid wise, you know, a second thing is that once you start thinking you've got Hanif, turning away from everything to Allah subhanaw taala. And the third thing is, then you have full submission to Allah, whatever Allah commands you, you do it, don't hesitate, don't ask question. You got to understand it, but then do it. And the fourth thing is, never associate anything with Allah. So Hautala, nothing, nothing can be equal. So these are four plus office in Middlesbrough him. But then Ibrahim realized really, that, you know, still people can have problem, like in any movement, what happened

00:22:53--> 00:23:07

when the people started movement, the pillars of the movement, but they also make some slogans, some symbols for the moment. So data reminds everybody in the history or the moment, so that it may be lucky. But I'm Shire, Shire are those important?

00:23:09--> 00:23:57

In science, though, the importance remind us that Ibrahim had the murder for the mill. So they all of us, you know, make it to think and understand, you know, the among those Shire, actually the house of Allah that he built in catoca, Rama, you know, and hygiene. And in all those things, you know, they make me to think, you know, to understand why by Abraham chose this place, Makkah, why not anywhere else, because he wanted to make very clear that he the movement is not for any nation, or any for all mankind. If you wanted to make an Iraqi Iraqi thing, anywhere, it could have been like that. But when he made MK Dhamaka was not lived by anybody. It was a new city. He made a new

00:23:57--> 00:24:41

city basically, to make Aliyah that is Mila is connected to something universal, something which actually does not belong to any particular nation. He himself was from Iraq. And this guy is somewhere else far away to he built as the city in the moment. We're connected to a city within our city of anybody, neither city of Arab, non Arabs, rapido, Syrian or Egyptian or Indians in a city. Just METAvivor basically, before Abraham did not exist, that nobody could claim even though he was the man who made a claim of the city to start at the moment freshly from something new really, to try not to become national nationalist movement, you know, because he wanted to make OMA, which I

00:24:41--> 00:24:50

agree with Celeste fala you did not connect it to any line or any language or any ethnicity. It is a you know, Omar

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

opyt obedient people to that how he chose that display. And then when people make it in any city of symbols, they

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

Make up buildings and the buildings become important but buildings will finish a new ruler will come you know, destroy them and then make a new building. So, you know, you're disconnected from the past what Ibrahim did he actually made you know

00:25:17--> 00:26:00

productive the city those things which are permanent mountains, Safa Marwah you know then you have Mina, then you have RFR that was deliver all those things which will remain there centuries after centuries, nobody will change and the house of Allah, which allows for the guarantee that he will remain there. So, these are the things that he connected the people there, you know, he wants to make people to be oriented, you know, not disoriented, it should be a place where they come and they meet together they learn in the face every time it will remind them. So, it was very, very powerful symbols and you know, part of territory no doubt, you know, 100 hours of the Shire of Allah subhanaw

00:26:00--> 00:26:17

taala and you know, so far and moreover Quran itself Misha in the favela, Barbata Misha Illa, Safar, Marva frosh, Iref Allah this mount is also the mere the for that purpose to remind you to this map becomes universal. You know, they are not like any nation.

00:26:18--> 00:27:05

Anything in the middle of it all universal. Actually, Ibrahim himself Quran said when I was in Asia I Luca Lynas, Imam Obi mango to make you a man for all mankind, and then Allah spotless about the Kaaba with Jordan and Acaba, Muthiah butterly Nasi. We made the Kaaba center for all the people and unless further say about the height, what Allah He didn't ask GLBT you know, the hijab the house the obligatory and all the men cried every time it is terrific with our incomes and not all the people. It never comes to Arabs, or none of people the east of the West, no, it's a nurse, anybody, all the human being that connected to this and basically this moment was for all human being, you know,

00:27:05--> 00:27:45

those who want to worship or smarter don't want to ever Hanif for all of them. So try to understand really that this did did remind you that you will connected you know with the rocky muddy, salaam, this is Mila, you know, thinking or whatever is whenever you do something, thinking, you know, and, you know, the other parts of the, you know, this shadow IRA, you know, especially the hygiene and the artifact that it was terrifying Amina, you know, distinct Shalonda. I'll explain next week. I don't know if you look at here, because there's some problem in the Miko speakers but anyway, I think I'll just type it here. And if you have any question please ask.

00:27:47--> 00:28:25

We can hear handled I think most of us can hear it's maybe just a little bit muffled. So maybe Sharla before next week, but we can try and get the mic sorted in Sharla. But for now, we'll have to make do inshallah. So this will be the q&a section. If anyone who is new here we usually take comments depending on if you're joining from Facebook or YouTube just leave your question in the comments of wherever whatever live stream you're watching from and inshallah we will be able to see it from outside and we will try and take as many questions as possible. So any questions you have in Sharla that maybe perhaps we can try and answer within this q&a related to Lord hedger, Hodge,

00:28:26--> 00:28:32

Ibrahim on Islam, the old here and anything in between and sha Allah will try and take them so let's go from

00:28:34--> 00:28:46

Okay, we have an interesting question here which is, as it's hard also not to stop cutting your nails and hair from the first of the hijab if you're paying for old here can woman remove her hair and do LTF?

00:28:48--> 00:28:54

Yeah, no, this is a very important thing really is in this matter, there have been differences of opinion.

00:28:55--> 00:29:05

There are Hadith in Sahih Muslim by almost an amount of their loved Alana and the prophets Allah has asserted that those people who want to sacrifice

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

in want

00:29:09--> 00:29:47

to win the the hijab starts in like how we started last night when he starts then don't cut your hair and don't cut your nails. So the Prophet has advised in this hadith Abu Musa mother loved Alana, and that hadith Sahih Muslim. So that had been followed by many people, you know, in my home, but I do think obligately That people who want to sacrifice, you know, they should not cut their nails, and they should not cut their heels to this one opinion.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Better actually, this thing we never learned from any other companions and nobody practice discipline in the early generation. I shed a lot on her

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

Certain report with a difference of almost Salama, I shall say. We used to send sacrifice animal on the behalf of the parcela Salam, but the prophets Allah simply notice stuff from editing, he used to participate in normal life, he never got any prohibition for himself. So people think actually that a more authentic, much better report. So some people actually combine between the two Hadith, like Mushaf does a Dessay if you don't, it is better not to coordinate, it seems to have not to cut your hair, but if you cut it doesn't matter in

00:30:37--> 00:31:21

the mobile way that people have got to don't cut it doesn't really matter. You know, I myself I used to, you know, very much, you know, follow that with my family that, you know, wander from the beginning of the first of the hija not to cut in here. But now I realize that this is not a very strong opinion, that's been really easy. That it is not important. You know, for the police thing. A Haram is only for the heist people. When people go for a hike, they should not cut their nails oh here, there's so many other things. I should not apply the preference like a harem. But those who stand out from the sacrifice sacrifice, sacrifice does not need any Oh, in addition to that, okay,

00:31:21--> 00:31:33

for bonafide many, many people and to my understanding, that actually is a better understanding better thinking. But anyway, all disciplines existed. You can follow any of them

00:31:37--> 00:31:49

okay, insha Allah let's take a question from Fatiha. And her question is Which surah is best to reflect on the story of Ibrahim anism for the Hajj purpose.

00:31:51--> 00:31:54

You know, to the really important

00:31:55--> 00:32:48

you know, Ibrahim for the story is coming in many Surahs but a lot of details are in sutra Bhakra you know the central bank Robin says Allah subhanaw taala measurable way the bit the labor law Hemara basically Martin Futterman from there it is actually a lot of things are about Ibrahima. It's not about the Kaaba and in the Safavid America missionary law, all those goals and then next one is the software. So that if you combine between both of them, then you learn about Ibrahim Islam. So much the IRA advise you that people should study sutra Bacara and super high in a mana for ised in Surah Baqarah this Versa, where it is that you Brahim or Islam says that world assembly among them a

00:32:48--> 00:32:52

messenger of both females with a minimum messenger among them

00:32:53--> 00:32:54

in the

00:32:56--> 00:33:32

Kitab Tali Maliki Talim and dusky are more afraid thank you the sutra Bukhara has been arranging a kind to do it without him. Two or three things happen the same order in the whole sutra baccarat suitable character he like the first syllable tilava ayatullah, then the Kitab al Hikmah, and then the Tuskegee and then something to complete there that he think they people refer to Docker carefully. And so to the hygiene, they will learn you know, I think irata vertebra he also says to Bukhara tells you about the people who deviate from the path Ibrahim

00:33:33--> 00:33:42

Mohamed Rashid, he was a clever thinking a positive attitude in Arabic language Sufi, those who don't think properly so that Quran measure say kudos for her.

00:33:43--> 00:33:47

So there are the Jews there his descendants, but they become a puppet of people.

00:33:49--> 00:34:04

So Quran criticized them they murdered the culture you know, don't turn don't face east or west all these things that really become a culture in Judaism like Muslims. So if not suitable and properly you know, see what Quran teacher the what's going on

00:34:05--> 00:34:27

with the water story that they are and how they connect to Rahima Islam certainly inshallah you will learn a lot about the rise moment and obviously a third one is Susanna. Yeah, because that is a very story of allowable offering comes to maybe the three will be inshallah in Africa, tsunamis very important the sutra Baqarah on our arm and Hutch.

00:34:30--> 00:34:41

Okay, in Sharla let's move on to we have a question from either Mohammed here. What does it mean when the Quran describes Ibrahim Ali Sam as an ummah and

00:34:42--> 00:34:47

a wet one in Surah Hood? What does this mean?

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

That mutton Lila uma means, you know the one who used to mutton parnetta Linda and if the Brahim with whom I mean Shiva, the Imam of the people. You know, my own mom used to do

00:35:00--> 00:35:44

It umami the leader to mock and we also know leaders to evaluate some of the leading data the people on the line have very much been defined as a hotel with a humility and a wah means in his heart heart was very soft to very quickly you know start to hate has started the concerts you know start like crying and moving in anything can influence you know make the heartache in anything you know being a fool or any it really his hearts move to when I just came and told the primary salon that they're going to punish looters are the people have really felt very, very strongly for that and he even said to a lot of mattala You know, don't punish them and of course a huge I don't

00:35:46--> 00:36:05

even know he started arguing us about the people that God punished him to see but he was so thin he everybody spent his pin even he argued unless hotel not to punish. So Allah subhanaw taala set you know ever I believe this, this we have decided and then Allah defensive Rahim in a Rahim Allah Halima Awapuni wa

00:36:06--> 00:36:20

it is how you know he feels everybody's pain to avoid someone who whose heart really moves with you know all these feelings in a pain or whatever the whenever Good things come he the heart becomes in pain and

00:36:22--> 00:36:23

I've moved in with that

00:36:31--> 00:36:49

Okay, our next question is from Imran I know sorry, just to anyone who's asked questions earlier than this. I will try and take some questions just on this topic and then inshallah we'll move to the more general questions. I'm Ron is asking many non Muslims asked why do we sacrifice an animal does Allah need our sacrifice?

00:36:51--> 00:37:10

You know, thing, we have to explain to the Pickety would understand really the thinking or the life why you take life and all those things. We have to understand that Allah subhanaw taala is the owner of the universe, explain to the people who the creator, He's the master, and everything owned by him. And he's testing everyone.

00:37:11--> 00:37:44

He made the human being to own the property that he murdered them to own the animals and that they love the animals you know, they love it, you know, there is a lot more to see them really ready to sacrifice the love for the Command of Allah. So these are the symbols to win you know, sacrifice time cost you spend your money by an animal sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala better reminder and also connecting the people tell them the story for Rahima Islam, that Allah asked him to sacrifice his son and he was even ready for that. There are lots of Mattila

00:37:46--> 00:37:47

asked him, you know,

00:37:48--> 00:37:52

in his center, Iran, that he blocked him so if we find that in the

00:37:53--> 00:38:39

sunnah to the mind about about all the demonic sacrifice anymore, it's reminding us about that big sacrifice. So we don't take a life for our enjoyment, we take a life, because it is commanded Allah and His owner to he can command it to take the life you know, whenever he likes to he gave us the power to use the animals to own them. And then when he attains with animals, he wants to be detached from the animal to sacrifice like money, he asked her to pay the cat to become attached to the money, then he asked her to spend it too far every single thing when the people caught eight last people to detain him from the dumpster. From that, to stay tuned to a completely so you can explain

00:38:39--> 00:38:47

to them Abraham the Hanif and part of Han Fei to sacrifice whatever we love, the Quran says length and

00:38:48--> 00:38:55

we might have a boon you never can attain the proper obedience of Allah unless you spend from what you love.

00:39:02--> 00:39:19

Okay, let's move on to our next question. sha Allah and this question is some countries will celebrate Eid Al Adha a day late from Mecca. What is the ruling then and can they still fast on the night of the hija which would actually according to Mecca would be I need

00:39:21--> 00:39:59

everybody has to follow their own moon sighting. So you have to follow your own line to the hedge and you're not to follow Mecanim when you're in Makkah, then follow the moon select player. You know when you play yours or when the time comes in your city. You don't find a mechanic the whole time. If you find a mechanic over time, it will be very early here. You know early more like 10 o'clock in the morning or eight you know and then you can't play semi you know sunset you don't follow the sunset America. You don't fast a car to the sunset or sunrise at NACA through karma. The people have to follow you know, follow their own timing the country they live tonight

00:40:00--> 00:40:19

Hey Jeff your time that will all America will come Arafah Baraka in McDowell, on the 90 day time, if you fast, come to their time, which is one day earlier, you don't get anything, nothing will happen. You know, just because you know, they get it, but you don't get anything because not your 90, it's a case of moving Lucky, lucky to have

00:40:21--> 00:40:51

tahajjud starts in India in a time with very early and Allah somata loves people at that time. But that time in England, it will be 10 o'clock, not your time. If you start, you know, doing all the different Indian time, it will not have to get the same back or you have to wait until tahajjud chi time comes to your country, because this guy is moving with the time to 79 of the Hijjah It's America, it keeps moving with the time to wherever

00:40:52--> 00:41:11

those people get the better kaftans Roger Ver to air today don't get you have to wait for 90 of your country to understand this thing properly that you know for the time of the prayer, you follow your own timing for the time of the fasting, you follow your own sunset time. Similarly for the time of

00:41:12--> 00:41:23

your distance, you follow your own timing stimuli maybe you know you do either one day later than them but you know, whatever is decided in your city that what you need to follow

00:41:28--> 00:41:36

Okay, we have a question from Sue who's asking should we or is it recommended to faster full nine days or just on your manava

00:41:37--> 00:42:22

Yeah, you know, definitely fasting in these days are very important. You know, most of us are not allowed to fast five days to five days, no fasting one is the day for you. And then for that in the ledger that tends to have a limit to what 13 To this five days you are not allowed to fast Makoto hurry me or haram you got cynically but other than these five you can fast any day. So from the facilitator until nine it or good days, you can fast you can get some reward, but night actually had more reward is a special day. Because you know, if you fought that day, then your sins for the last year and the sin of the next year. It is sin since our two years are forgiven, and we do so many

00:42:22--> 00:42:41

sins anyway, that is very important to Epic confers nine deaths that very good, but they don't have you know, nine some people don't actually can't do work and all those to at least make effort to faster 99 take a card to our calendar this country either going to be next Friday inshallah.

00:42:45--> 00:42:59

Insha Allah. Okay, let's This is a very interesting question. I actually wanted to ask this myself. And I think this is maybe more pertinent to Muslims are living in the West, and maybe this is also affecting our own Muslim youth.

00:43:00--> 00:43:15

So this question is asking, what's the best way to respond to a grown to a growing group of vegetarians or vegan Muslims who reject animal sacrifice and refuse to eat from the sacrificial meat on the basis of unnecessary animal cruelty?

00:43:16--> 00:43:18

The last thing really, isn't

00:43:19--> 00:43:35

it you know, are going with are they going to make our religion our way of life? From our own reason? Just our mere reasoning, no guidance from anywhere from heaven. Is it possible and if it had done really, is it going to

00:43:36--> 00:44:13

you know, say for everybody, because people have so many different mind you know, just think really, you know, because some people could think that you know, they enjoy it they will do that some people could think you know, they can they love meat, some people love fish, some people how can you make people really to follow something so there'll be no Halal haram nobody not enough Rafi to all be pathetic other people would have no reason really. You can't explain that. You know other than saying cruelty but truth really is you don't know really what cruelty is. You know, how can you define it? Because there are so many things also people kill and hate and all those things.

00:44:14--> 00:44:17

Even your human being alien enemies.

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

The way is we have to decide very clearly really Who are we

00:44:28--> 00:44:33

even without that, that no religion. So we in this universal we are not the masters.

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

That what we need to teach everybody ourselves and everybody that we are not the Masters in this universe we are Celeste and we have been made and created by someone the One who created he the one who created everything else. So you know, he he he Kumar said and then he we highlighted what he makes halal. And Haram is what he makes haram even if the prophets have no right to make something haram

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

that what he was really that what he wants to deepen in the mind everybody that what Imani means really that in a we don't have our own choice. You know we be asked to live. We do party commerce, you understand it, you have a reasoning it has a reason, but we must follow his commerce. He's the one who makes the halal or haram. Two he had murder in sheep cow a lot. But he made a haram. So you know, he makes halal and haram you know, he even Halal things he said, you know, you can't make Halal by yourself, you have to use my name Bismillah you say Allah the name, correct his animal, then you move on.

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

To you know, the reasoning basically, that we have got is that

00:45:43--> 00:46:20

we have have to have proof from ALLAH, if Allah Asad that, Allah, that's all we are select Allah, and we want to obey Him. So if people say that, you know, you eat meat, do you have any verse in the Quran? Or do you have any command from the Prophet? Yeah, that is good question. Because we are selected for love, we must obey him, too if Muslims do something, which Allah never commanded, or the Prophet never taught. Yeah, that will be a big thing that not rightly Muslims should not do that. There are Muslims. Muslim means somebody who surrenders to the Command of Allah, who the slave on the Sahaba Tala. So the reason we say something halal or something haram, the reason we eat

00:46:20--> 00:47:01

something we don't eat something is not our own thinking. You know, it is because we don't own anything, you know, even vegetables to water, right? We have got to eat plants. And fruit really? Do you think plants have no life, plants outside life, you know, somebody can sit here, so cruelty to the plants, and there are people thinking like that, you know, they don't want to go to eat, then in nothing, nothing will be left, really, you know, people will die. So we have to understand that you can't just keep using this thing. Either way that nothing will remember the way is the right way is the one who made us and the one who made the whole universe what he said, why he is commodities,

00:47:02--> 00:47:42

less important, our own desire, who we are that we can come out why somebody thinks that if I say the innovator rhythm is the best thing. Why is it more important than Allah? If Allah says you can eat meat, why is commanded less important and why my own thinking is more important that we need to think that I am particularly but I must not wait to think that whenever people make all these way of life, it's not based on thinking it just, you know, idea and the thoughts and imaginations come to their mind. They can't prove it to the solid thing that Allah says in the Quran. Is that what I see that Hala and what is haram? That haram

00:47:49--> 00:47:56

Okay, Inshallah, let's see if we can take a few more questions. Maybe some more general questions in sha Allah

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

Okay, let's have a look.

00:48:02--> 00:48:11

Khalid is asking what is the ruling on men wearing silver there is a ruling that says men can only wear 2.975 grams

00:48:13--> 00:48:36

you know the way Allah has married you know thinks that you know women are allowed all jewelry you know they can wear any gold or silver or dye money or anything like that you know, for the men you know, these things are not allowed nothing not good no gold no silver oh and anything was actually mix I don't want to meet a Xena. There's enough for the men

00:48:37--> 00:49:26

but Silver by the professor as a youth the silver ring, you know far the ceiling, you know, like it's time for like, one day he tried to letter his name with binder ring to he just use it like a signature for his name. The dirty like proper official data to he used that to firm that people derive that one ring can be allowed for the men, you know, for a reason, by a debt will be from Silver, there are the perfect height, but anything from iron, or any ornament from iron from gold, from any diamond from anything like that. That's, you know, not allowed for the money card. If you mother this, this is not allowed do it for the men. Because for the women reason is because Alison

00:49:26--> 00:49:59

Jota has a certain more duty for the men, cuz women are going to be mothers and they look after you know, so they're going to report from their men they are going to sometime do jihad in many things, they are about to earn money for their wives. Their life is different. So in that sense, you know, the carnage bless ability to adorn themselves all that all the time. So this could have been far better for them. You know, no God, no silver, no oil, nothing like that. Except the kind to people you know, you can have a small drink, but we don't know exactly where to really it could be anywhere.

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

Placing watering in order if some if serves a purpose, they're not perfect. Don't worry

00:50:15--> 00:50:35

okay, Inshallah, let's take, we have another question from Faisal. His question is, I have a question about understanding Hadith. How are we to understand the Hadith when the prophets Allah Azza wa sallam statement conflicts with his practice, are we to understand it in light of his practice, some say his statement takes precedence over his action.

00:50:37--> 00:51:15

You know, it's a lot of discussion in the book of sulfur surfaces, simple material, either, you know, generally his actions and his teaching will be the same. You know, it will be all the time same except when we know really, he's addressing certain people who are different from him. Like, you know, he could have a no nine wives. But when he teaches people you teach people to, you know, if your model for divorce them, we cannot have more than four, that some compare, somebody became Muslim, and he came, and he had 10, a wife, with a prophet ask him to leave the other six, just give four. So here, certainly he did not follow the same thing, because the Quran had made clear that he

00:51:15--> 00:51:52

had a different ruling on this matter, to in some cases, like you know, he says to the people, don't continue fasting, you know, just for today. And then after that, you you have to prepare fast and eat in the right. But he himself he used to faster to three days continuously on he did not like other people. So those things are Korea, meaning simply easy, with no proof of command and being specific for the prophets, Allah Allah Salam, then it will be both for him and for his ummah, that agenda routing basically to whenever he says something, he also does extra few things, where it is proven that they are very specific for the profits a lot is.

00:51:58--> 00:52:01

Okay, we have a question from Mohammed here.

00:52:03--> 00:52:12

He's saying I'm from Pasha Pakistan. My question is, can I make, I'm assuming sacrificed in the name of my deceased father?

00:52:13--> 00:52:56

Yeah, I don't understand this rule, anything where money comes, you can do on the behalf of anybody. Like, like, if somebody borrowed money, you can pay his debt to similarly sacrificing had O'Meara, Amara sadaqa charity, these things you can do on behalf of your fathers and sisters who have passed away you know, you can do even on behalf of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his companions you know people can make a sacrifice for the profit people can make a sacrifice for older companies to when money comes you can do what you can't do physical things like playing salah or fasting because the physical things you can't do and other people be lucky you can't eat on somebody's behalf you

00:52:56--> 00:53:09

can't drink on somebody's behalf so similarly physical things you can't do on somebody but money thing you can do to you can make sacrifice for your father was passed away. I'm doing same thing you know, my father and my mom. They're both have passed away

00:53:10--> 00:53:19

and I just have to the phone my brother to make sacrifice on their behalf. So you know, people often you can do sacrifice for them.

00:53:22--> 00:53:28

Okay insha Allah and Nadeem is asking which day out of the three is best for sacrifice.

00:53:30--> 00:54:09

You know after you read Isla you do a better in attentive the first day that's most important than second day then the third day superior on the fourth day but anyway just make three days. So up to you really what is better for you what easy for you, you know convenient for you to get the same reward. Maybe if you want to be quicker, may Allah give you more reward. I don't really think it is so important. Sometimes people want to cut some time the house there are more than one sacrifice. The people want to make one anymore on the 10th then they keep eating 1011 12 then they make another one on the tools they can eat later on. People have their own thinking arrangement. So up to you

00:54:09--> 00:54:11

whatever convenient for you.

00:54:14--> 00:54:45

Okay, shall I think we've it looks like we've covered most of the questions being asked Jeff, I'll probably end on this note Charla on the docket on the topic of hedge. You may obviously be aware that the requirements for people in the so people in the US the UK and Australia going for hygiene now. Very recently, the whole process has changed has become very restricted. And most people that made plans on going Hajj this year now are not able to go or it's been made very, very difficult.

00:54:46--> 00:54:53

What advice would you give to those who maybe they already made the plans they booked their leave from work they saved up all their money.

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

Everything was according to them they they will thought they were going on Hajj and because of

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

these new changes now they've been they've been unable to go. And maybe those who were planning to go in the next few years away, it looked reasonable, it looks like it was possible for them. And now it's looking

00:55:10--> 00:55:14

very unlikely. And maybe this is extended to those all over the world, what advice would you give them?

00:55:16--> 00:55:40

When you're mapping Bada, you make a full full effort, and there's no shortcut from you, to Allah will reward you certainly because you know, people will want to go and they still could not go to dinner, therefore, to delegate reward for that, and whenever they have any future opportunity, they should go and ask in the future, I think it will be more difficult any better move to come more expensive. So you have to understand your condition to your you know,

00:55:42--> 00:56:19

if refer the height, then make it, you know, best effort as possible. But if not for the height, they don't worry too much about that. There's so many that will depend on money, there are so many orphans in the world, there are so many widows, you know, so many educational projects for Muslims must you can do is put your money in so many things. There are many, many women that are not married, you can spend money to you know, to marry them. There are people who bought a house and you can build a house for them, you get all the reward for that if you can't go for high. But if obrigado refer your hygiene further, then you make an effort but you can't do more than that. And

00:56:19--> 00:56:26

Allah knows that. And meanwhile, if people die, I'd love to forgive them. Because they've made the effort understood they were not successful.

00:56:27--> 00:56:30

But we don't know really what to do in the future maybe in the future, the tinder

00:56:32--> 00:56:41

in sha Allah We hope so. Just after the Aquarian shift for your time, and like everyone likes chef mentioned at the beginning, we do plan on inshallah having another
