00:00:07--> 00:00:10

Santa Monica Kumar, he or my candle.

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

Shadow will start soon Sharma

00:00:26--> 00:01:15

smilla. He went hungry now Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. He was early he was I mean, he was in Nam hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was set out to be on early, he was so happy. We praise Him and thank him Subhanahu wa Tada. And we asked him to continue to supply us with His blessings and with his guidance, where guidance is the greatest blessing, we asked him subhana wa Taala to give us the strength of body and spirit to continue to be sincere and close to him. And to remember him and not forget him. And we asked him subhana wa tada to accept from us in this month of Ramadan, to give us the strength to pray and to fast and to read the Quran and remember him and to improve,

00:01:15--> 00:01:36

and even at moments of weakness to still remember him so that we can regain our strength. We asked him to send so on and so number one is messenger sallallahu early we're sending them we asked him to make us among his followers, in major and small matters, and to make us of those who will see him and join him on the Day of Judgment.

00:01:37--> 00:02:24

We ask Allah zildjian or hamara Hamid to open our hearts and open our minds and teach us this religion and make us of those who apply what they hear. And they spread it and they teach it and they are so blessed with that ability to be able to share this and learn it and and invite others to it. So ask Allah xojo hamara Hamid to continue to bless us all. So in sha Allah Today we will be talking about the story of slay man allihies salam with medica to serve up the Queen of Sheba. And we last story, right we talked about setup. But when we talked about Scylla, we talked about sibor in their destruction in their final phase, kind of the blessings of Allah as they do and then what

00:02:24--> 00:02:28

happened to them. So now we will see set up in their glory.

00:02:30--> 00:03:03

But also we will see also set up where they've gone right and where they've gone wrong. And we will see so they man it Sadam and the lessons will say lessons that we can get from that story in Sharla. So this is installing a new analyzer Julian was talks about today, man and in the beginning when he's talking about chilima licenses were who shared it so the manager knew who mean a genie will install a plugin for own user own. Allah is talking about this, the army of Salima, now, since a man is a prophet,

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

and a king,

00:03:06--> 00:03:30

both prophet and King, and you will see evidence of him being king. And he said on here, being king means that he has power, he has money, he has soldiers, right. And you will see manifestations of all of this in this story. So here a lot of is saying here, that the army of shaman is composed of what composed of jinn, intz and birds.

00:03:31--> 00:03:36

And this is not anything that anyone after soon a man will ever be able to get.

00:03:37--> 00:04:13

Because he prayed to Allah zolgensma that he will be granted a kingship that no one after him will be granted as a sign of the favor of Allah zoji. Right? How does he know that he is very close and very special to a license he Allah grant me something, nobody else after me We'll get Allah gave him that. So no one after so the man will get some of the things that should a man have gotten, including among them that he has an army and he has among it a battalion or regiment of gin. So part of his army is Jin, who has this no one.

00:04:14--> 00:04:53

And then pod our ends. That's difficult, but another part is made of birds. So birds are also recruited in that army. And he talks to them. And he commands them controls them, and they do his bidding. And he set up so this is something that is unique to suit a man and a sermon is a sign of the favor of Allah and the power of Allah as now let me skip the the story of a novel in the sequence here because we want to just focus on the story of the Kingdom of Saba and what happened to them and also on a lot of sentences about so they met with the fact that the player so he's inspecting the birds, and that tells you that Sulaiman as a king was very involved.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

That is, here's the battalion of the birds and now he's inspecting the birds who's there and who's not

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

was not for the money in the hood with the hobo. Where is the hoopoe among the birds? So he knows exactly who's in his army. Where are they? If they are missing or if they are present, he inspects, where's the hoopoe? He's not there, and should amen we understand from this, that he is very disciplined, otherwise he will not be able to control all those jinn and all those ins and all those birds and we can imagine Subhanallah we're not talking about 10s of them, we'll probably be talking about 1000s. So we will not be able to control all that kingdom if he wasn't disciplined. So that's why he inspects and he says not find the who do what, where is he and he promises that he's going to

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

punish him. If he does not have an excuse.

00:05:48--> 00:06:21

If he does not have an excuse for being absent, I am going to punish him. And that shows you the discipline of a man it is set up because someone was some may wonder, Well, why is he so hard on the bird, he's gonna kill him or he'll punish him if he is not available? Why because if he in managing such a thing, such a big thing, if he is not disciplined, it will fall apart. So shows you the importance of discipline whenever you want to run something and the bigger that thing is, the bigger the discipline that is needed, of course without crossing into cruelty,

00:06:22--> 00:06:41

but discipline is important. Right? Otherwise as we said he will not be able to manage it so the Hood Hood comes back from Agatha later about he didn't stay away for long and the hood comes back flying back from where he's going to tell us but what he tells us Souleymane and he said is what

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

helped to remind them to hit me he would you need to come in southern Indian area clean he says I know what you did do not know

00:06:50--> 00:06:56

this little helpless are very helpless but compared to say a man very helpless this small group

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

tell us to the man and he said I'm I know what you do not know. And I've come to you from Seva. Now where was today man? So the man is in Jerusalem

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

does that's the base of his kingdom is in Jerusalem. What is sever we knew from last time so but is in Yemen. So the hope of flew all the way to Yemen

00:07:18--> 00:07:54

observed what they were doing and then came back to city man it he set up such a distance. But the amazing thing from both of them is that the Hood Hood says I know what you do not know and he's speaking to a man and he said I'm like that. And so they eventually accepted that yes, you know what, I do not know what my knowledge has not reached. And there's a lesson in that. That is no matter how knowledgeable how powerful how advanced the knowledge you are someone very simple very humble could come and tell you I know something that you do not know and they could be right.

00:07:55--> 00:08:03

So the knowledge of the Hood Hood compared to Sulayman just compare it. You are a parent and you have a five year old six year old

00:08:04--> 00:08:12

and they could potentially write know something that you do not know. Now here's the question. Are you humble enough?

00:08:14--> 00:08:25

Are you submitting to Allah enough? Or do you love the truth enough to say yes, you know it and I do not know yes, you have more than I do. Yes, I'm wrong and you are right. Could you say this?

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

So a lot of us know a lot of us what's you know, become too arrogant

00:08:33--> 00:08:33

to

00:08:34--> 00:08:56

what is it that I wanted to say I'm willing to submit or unwilling to surrender to the truth when we say it and say no, no, we adhere to our own mistaken So no, I'm right. I'll never admit to the fact that they could be right and I'm wrong. But so they man what accepts it after verification, he accepts it. Now look at the verb here something that is as small as a hoopoe

00:08:58--> 00:09:22

a small bird and yet Suppan alone. He says, He says, I found them a woman. And she has power. He was the queen, she has power over them, what would the admin cliche and she has everything that she needs to be a king, meaning she's rich, she's powerful. People listen to her. She has control over the land. So it means at admin Cooley, she has all the things that she needs to rule

00:09:23--> 00:09:41

over a people who are mighty and who are strong. But I found them prostrating to the sun worshipping the sun instead of Allah zildjian that bird had insight had wisdom, more than that Queen and her people and everybody else.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

And a lot of times we look at people or even look at animals, Look at the birds now outside your window if you have them. And you may look at them and you say what is the I mean, what are those that they know? Do they have intelligence? Do they know anything other than eating and drinking and flying and pooping and whatever right Do they know anything else?

00:10:01--> 00:10:14

Yet the bird the hood here shows you that Japan Allah He gives a short hotspot even. Why is it that they do not prostrate to Allah zildjian who brings forth what is hidden from the heavens and the earth.

00:10:15--> 00:11:01

He is preaching he has knowledge upon Allah that exceeds the knowledge of a people of a city of a mighty, developed civilized city. And it tells you here about humanity, something incredible that there could be a squirrel, a fox, a dog, a cat, who would know about a lot more than we do, if we disobeyed him. If we turn from him away from him, those small helpless animals will know a lot about Allah than we do. So don't look down on anything of Allah's creation. You know, before that, the story that we've skipped the exchange between ants and the scholars in that exchange alone will not focus on it they'll tell you that this end is a wise end. This ant is an intelligent advocate when

00:11:01--> 00:11:16

she speaks the sentence that she speaks as she others right is full of wisdom of how she carefully chooses her words about should a man about them about how to protect themselves so panela even and that sometimes even without you know without

00:11:18--> 00:11:26

a lot of hesitation or qualms about if we just crushed them we would kill them. But this small and Allah had deposited in them so much wisdom

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

and that is why if there is no need to exterminate and kill and and fluid

00:11:33--> 00:12:02

if there is no need to kill and exterminate the creation of Allah as a valued and step into that and exterminate them, because every one of them is a creation that supplicates and prays to allows them to anyway, right. So so they met and he said I'm after here hearing that caught us Edinburgh as a doctor, he says, we will see whether you are right or wrong. There's another wisdom in that. Not as soon as you hear something you rush to believe it goes to a man has no reason to doubt the hook.

00:12:03--> 00:12:25

At the same time, he could be wrong, he could be mistaken, he could have made a mistake. So sometimes as soon as we hear something from someone or you take a position, as soon as we hear something from the news against or for someone, we take a position, rather we should say like silly man. And he said I'm so on board, we will see I'll verify Are you right? Or are you wrong?

00:12:26--> 00:12:56

Let me see for myself. Let me see the evidence not hearsay, not for somebody else before I judge. So he says to this word, carry my this letter of mine, take it to them, drop it, deliver it to them, stand aside and see what they will say. And so the Queen says to the council around her to the chiefs of that city. She says I've been delivered the letter and it is an honorable letter from Saudi men. And this letter is asking me to submit to Him a letter. Don't Don't be arrogant

00:12:58--> 00:13:01

against me, submit to me and come as Muslims.

00:13:02--> 00:13:35

And so this was the purpose the entire purpose of Sulaiman it, he said, he had this power. And this is one of the benefits of this story. He had this power. This might these soldiers who no one else will ever see after him. What did he use this power for? To expand his own glory? Just to have people submit to Him that so that he would say do and they will do? No one can question him. What did you use it for? Allah Allah Allah to to spread Allah his religion,

00:13:36--> 00:14:23

to spread the truth to wake them up. This military might have his alehissalaam muslin used to coerce people into Islam. No, it is theirs to eliminate whatever power they have that is stopping them from accepting Islam. No one can force another to believe or disbelieve. It is in your heart. And so the matter is, that it's far wiser to think that he can compel them into Islam. No, but as long as they have this power, it will stop them from as you will see in the rest of the story. stop them from coming to Allah so that that's why he said, you come and submit to me. When Mel they lose that power, they will think about Allah. I'll then think about the truth. And this is humanity in

00:14:23--> 00:14:32

general. The more power you have, the more rebellious the more disbelieving. When Allah takes it away, he forces you to look at your own

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

weakness and helplessness, and then seek someone who can support complement that weakness who can save me Who can help me a lot. zildjian so weakness, a lot of time breeds emotion, whereas strength a lot of time breeds arrogance and disbelief. This is what he wanted to shake alehissalaam and show them and so she seeks the counsel of the chiefs and the Chiefs say yes, you

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

No, we can fight we have the strength. Let's do but she

00:15:05--> 00:15:51

and she later we're gonna come to accept Islam. She was wiser and she says that if people if the kings are allowed to enter a city, they will make the honorable people in it. The weakest the humblest they will be humiliated meaning the people that will be turned upside down if they come into our city kings in general like they come into our city, a foreign power comes into your city, they'll turn it upside down. The Honorable will become the weakest the dishonorable among it, is it I don't want this to happen. So I will test them. I will test the waters by doing what send them a gift. See how should a man will react to that gift. If he is a king, he'll be impressed.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

It's a really

00:15:55--> 00:16:37

significant gift that I will send to him. We don't know what it is, but jewels, gold, silver animals, leather, this, you know, something significant, the kind that if a king will receive it, they'll think twice and say okay, now maybe we can negotiate, maybe I will let them go with a warning maybe now. Meaning because of worldly gains, they'll rethink their position, the threat, this gift comes to sell a man and he said to me doing an EP man, this is where you're sending me money, whatever Allah had given me is far superior to what have you have given to me, go back to you to them with this gift, we will come to them with an army that they will not be able to push back.

00:16:39--> 00:17:03

This is my strength when is used for the sake of Allah xeljanz to prove the truth and combat falsehood, we will give them an army, they will never be able to push back. You think that you can fight us you cannot. And once to the man is able to disarm their arrogance, then they can submit to Allah zildjian and now the Queen of Sheba knows

00:17:04--> 00:17:33

there's nothing else to do, I can't find them. I recognize the strength of Sulaiman. Now the only thing that we can is to March I mean what to go to him, the Queen herself is to travel and go to Sydney man, and he says, negotiate offer, you know surrender whatever it is, but we can fight Suleyman and that is the blessing of the power that should a man had. And he said, Now should a man sits in his Council.

00:17:34--> 00:17:42

And he now expects the queen to come. And he had heard from the Hood Hood, the hokku she has a mighty incredible throne.

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

Not done like that you can see a lot like

00:17:48--> 00:17:52

so so the man says, Who can bring me her throne before they come to me.

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

So one mighty Jin

00:17:58--> 00:18:09

says to sudima I'll bring it to you before you leave your council to set a man let's say he sits in the morning, leaves by the afternoon or Allah knows how many hours

00:18:11--> 00:18:35

that mitogen says in the span of a few hours. I'll carry it from where syba Yemen, to Jerusalem to you in maybe two, three hours, four hours, five hours Allah knows. But imagine the extent of power that should a man had at that time. That something like that could be transported from Yemen to Jerusalem in a few hours.

00:18:37--> 00:18:41

But then another Allah says who had knowledge of the book

00:18:43--> 00:18:48

they say it means that he had knowledge that other people do not have.

00:18:49--> 00:19:01

They say that he had knowledge of the name of Allah Zota The Greatest Name of Allah or a specific diet it's not that doesn't tell us but a specific meaning access to the type of knowledge where if you ask it's given

00:19:03--> 00:19:16

he says to so the man I'll bring it to you before you blink. Any Close your eyes you open it and it's there right in front of you. So even at a salon yeah allows him to do this and he sees her throat right in front of him.

00:19:17--> 00:19:25

And it is here that's really man it Sarah says hi to her them in front lobby he says this is from the virtue

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

or the favor of Allah says overjet upon me so that he will test me Will I be thankful or not. So even so a man at a salon recognizes that everything that he is receiving all of these beautiful things, all of these numbers incredible things are not going to be repeated after him. Because this ability will never be repeated after the man in a blink of an eye a throne moves from Yemen to Jerusalem. This is never gonna happen Africa they meant to anybody else. But this is a NEMA from Allah xeljanz so that Allah will test me Will I be thankful or

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

I'm grateful, and no one who is thankful only things for his own self for his own benefit, right? And if you are unground for unthankful, ungrateful allies, the VA does not need you. So anyway, right? This is good thing to remember about the names of Allah zoodle. In general, anything that Allah gives to you and you're happy, Allah here gives it to you because he wants to see how you will use it. Who will you thank? Who will you be after this? Now, a lot of us when Allah gives us a lot of power on this earth, what do we do with it? It corrupts us. We are forget about Allah azzawajal just see the nations today. If a nation is strong, and and wealthy, it forgets about Allah. They

00:20:43--> 00:21:00

have less email in the world today, right? If you see when they survey the nations of the world today, you'll see that the richer nations are more disbelieving than the poorer nations. It tells you that what we do with power and money is that it corrupts us. It tests us but we fail the test.

00:21:02--> 00:21:46

Anyway, just to conclude this story in sha Allah sent a man and he sent me says disguise this throne. He wants to test that queen to see how intelligent and wise is she. So when he says disguise the swan, so that we will see test her to see what she be able to recognize it or not. When she arrives. Soon a man asks her, is this your throne? She says, Can I know who it looks like it? And the scholars of Tafseer they said this reflects her wisdom and her intelligence. She didn't say yes or no. Because she's not sure on the one hand, it really looks like we're thrown. On the other hand, some things have changed in it, and then how could it be the same throne that she had left behind?

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

Who has this power to bring it

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

It's as if it is my throne.

00:21:53--> 00:22:16

And Suleyman wanted to do two things with this one to test her intelligence. But the other thing is to show her so much might and power, because as a queen, as person who has access to all of this power, and she is used to it, when she sees something that is beyond human ability, because it's this is a miracle. She sees something beyond human ability, she'll submit to it.

00:22:17--> 00:23:01

Just like a doctor, you know, at the time of a sign, he said, um, he could bring the dead back to life. If a doctor sees that happening, he knows that this is beyond any human ability, they submit to it to be immediately. So now she saw one example. Then she he invites her to his throne, and when she enters the throne, and it's made of glass and crystal, and there's water running under it, she hasn't seen anything like that before no one would be able to do that at this time. And he said now, she thinks it's this is water. So she lifts her skirt. He says you don't have to do this. This is made of glass and crystal. She sees something that she hasn't seen the likes of which before that

00:23:01--> 00:23:10

humbles her. And she's admitted to Allah zodion and Jesus in the Valentin FC, I run myself in worshipping the sun

00:23:11--> 00:23:55

or anything other than Allah is legit and I submit myself with so they meant to Allah soldier. That is the extent of the story of the Queen of Sheba in the Quran. There are things you know, that people add to it, that there's no you know, no evidence to support. But this is some of the evidence some of the benefits in sha Allah in that story and some of it Subhana Allah some of the benefits is humility, before Allah is a region and also when receiving the net result Allah remembering that this they do not happen because of us. Should a man or a sedan did not have power all of all of these Jin and people and tell you and Bert because of him, but because of Allah xeljanz so when you

00:23:55--> 00:24:17

receive it, thank Allah for it and see how you will react based on the names of Allah azza wa jal do you grow in humility and thankfulness, that this is truly a Nana, do you grow more in in gratitude and rebellion, this is not an enema for you take it and get rid of it or change your attitude so that it becomes a nightmare again.

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

And the final thing here is that Allah zildjian he can guide people and he guides people through things that are they are most familiar with. So they met it he said I'm could reach the heart of that Queen, by what showing her something that she is familiar with, but lies beyond any human ability. And that is part of the narrative that Eliza had given, so a man so you could see connecting this to the story that we have seen before the extent of the glory of sever of Sheba, the tribe, or the city of Seva. Then we had a mighty army. They had a lot of money. They had a lot of power.

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

They thought that in themselves that we even could overtake the army of a man at his salon, but we've seen what happened to them when they rebelled. So there was a man among them, but it didn't last. And so he managed to guarantee of the Netmums of Allah, the guarantee of prosperity, the guarantee of the pleasure of Allah. When it goes away, Allah could continue to bless or give nem as to a nation, but it will expire. Because without a man, they'll grow in hostility and corruption and in disbelief. And all these are keys to losing the demos of Allah as soon as a lot as though it did to preserve the NEMA that he had given to us not taken away, to make us grateful not ungrateful, to

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

increase us and even when we received NEMA not in disbelief when we received them.

00:25:53--> 00:26:03

hamdulillah Wilhelmina alum insha Allah Allah answer a few questions and there's one question of yesterday and Shall I like handle I still remember. So to answer that inshallah, I hope the person who asked it is still here.

00:26:05--> 00:26:15

Are we layman allowed to take different opinions from different mishaps when our community has already ascribed to a particular school of thought? Now, Michelle, so.

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

So let's see here, your community, as you've said,

00:26:21--> 00:26:46

has subscribed to a particular school of legal school now school of thought legal school. So suppose for instance, they're all Maliki's. Okay. Now, you say that can I take from other schools of legal schools? They say, Well, why are you taking from other legal schools? It is based on evidence. Right? So your person who's following the evidence, say, yeah, this is allowed.

00:26:47--> 00:26:57

If you say this is just basically based on convenience, it's just this is difficult, that's easier. They say ease and difficulty on their own, just like that is not enough.

00:26:58--> 00:27:04

So ideally, all of us as Muslims should be people who are following evidence.

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

So if the evidence, the strongest evidence at this matter isn't the Maliki school, I'll follow that. And in the next issue, if it's in the Hanafi school, I'll follow that. If it's the Shafi school or follow this, if it's the hanbali School, I'll follow that. So our guide is evidence of Eliza as we find it in the Koran, or the listener tab, you say as a layperson, I don't really have the ability to know right from wrong, you say, yeah, you can ask callers, but typically, ideally, they would be scholars who also are following evidence, are not the ones who are saying, I will only follow one legal score, restrict myself do it, but rather, they will say, yeah, I've been trained in this legal

00:27:45--> 00:27:57

school, but also I will not restrict myself to it. If the evidence as a scholar points me in another direction, I'll follow it. So we'll say you follow that scholar or similar group of scholars, right.

00:27:59--> 00:28:20

If your community on the other hand, they all follow a particular legal school. You want to exit from that exit from that for a good reason. Meaning you've asked scholars who are trustworthy, knowledgeable, they have Taqwa and they point out that No, I mean, the other opinion that belongs to another school is stronger.

00:28:22--> 00:28:45

You ask and you ask any ask any assurance sha Allah out in this matter, your school that is dominant in your area is not right. It's another opinion that belongs to another school, and you know the evidence and you trust the person we see follow that inshallah. But follow it in a way that is gentle, and that is why is that is not going to cause a fitna meaning a lot of commotion, a lot of anger, a lot of

00:28:48--> 00:29:20

reactions, negative reactions when people around. So don't test people don't shop them. Because everybody is used to one thing, and you just come to them, and you're the only person doing differently, be gentle and how you introduce this. And sometimes it is wise, right, depending on how severe the backlash is that it is in public, as long as it's not sinful. The other opinion is not sinful, in the beginning, not too sharp people so to do what they're doing, until they reach an understanding where they could understand what you're doing.

00:29:21--> 00:29:42

So inshallah, what I'm saying is that yes, you are allowed to based on evidence to follow an opinion that is not the predominant one in your area. But the wise, let it be based on evidence not based on desire or ease or convenience, and insha. Allah introduce a gently and show. So this is a general answer to a general question. So I'm not

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

I don't know in particular, what thing you're asking about, but this is that thing that I have in sha Allah as a general answer to a general question. When it comes to that, what if we bring news to someone and they are arrogant and reject the truth? How should we respond to this situation? Of course, I mean, you know, there's nothing to do. Most of us are

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Now most of us, a lot of us are like that. You bring them to truth, we bring the news and they're arrogant. So understand, inshallah, sometimes the psychology of that person if you know them. And their psychology is that they're not going to accept from you, but from somebody else,

00:30:14--> 00:30:43

they're not going to accept it, if you're really certain about it, if you say I am the one who's bringing it, but they will accept it if you are a messenger, so and so said so and so suggested so and so. So it's not you, it's somebody else. You see how it works. Sometimes if you say, this is right, this is wrong, they're not going to take it from, if you say so and so said, it's right, so and so said, it's wrong. And it's somebody that they respect, or at least it's somebody else. They'll take it.

00:30:44--> 00:31:11

So understand the psychology of that person, and see how to present this to them. Sometimes you present it to them, as some people have said, Have you heard about it, so rather forcing them to follow? You give them the room to investigate, consider research, ask, and maybe they'll come to accept it on their own. So just understand their psychology in sha Allah, if they have this arrogance in them understand it, let's deal with it, and they got up for them.

00:31:12--> 00:31:25

Right make up for them. And sometimes if the issue is not really urgent, there's no need to present it to them. If they you think that they're going to reject it, rather, let's work on more primary issues.

00:31:27--> 00:31:36

That if they accept the secondary issues become easier. So as I said before, in another context, a person who doesn't pray and he's smoking,

00:31:37--> 00:31:43

let's address that first before smoking. Okay. That's that's just an example. A lot.

00:31:47--> 00:32:03

A situation similar to it? I don't know that's not complete. Okay. Is it true that humans cannot have any connection with Jen but why profits that a man had a gin as helper? Good question, right? Hold on, whoa, who gave so the man power over the gym.

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

That's the difference.

00:32:08--> 00:32:12

Who gave to the man power over the gin? Allah xuejun.

00:32:13--> 00:32:24

Meaning they'll soon a man could tie them up, knows what they're doing, could punish them. They can't mess with a man. So the man is a prophet.

00:32:25--> 00:32:31

Like telling you, he could punish them, he could burn them. He could put them in captivity, they were afraid of sudima.

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

And the other story right in there at the end of when they tells you about Solomon's death, and he died while he was standing, you know, holding his staff.

00:32:42--> 00:32:57

And he didn't fall, Allah xojo made that so so that the agenda or whatever they would see. So the man overseeing what they're doing, they continue to serve menial work, like they're carrying digging, and whatever, the site of Sulaiman terrify them.

00:32:58--> 00:33:36

That's not for any one of us. And you could say, Oh, I'm gonna have the jinn help me, they could ruin your life, you wouldn't know because you don't have that protection from Allah, you don't have that power over the jinn. They could tell you that, okay, we are assisting you and they're messing with you. Or you think that they're helping, and they're tricking you. So that's why you do not have a connection with the gym. Like a Virgin comes, you know, and it's, it's possible and you hear somebody talking, and they're saying, I'm from the gym, and I'm here to help you and you know, I will assist you and if you help me and it will help you and you think oh yeah, they're a believer,

00:33:36--> 00:33:52

they're believing gender Muslims, why not? How do you know that they believe in Muslim jinn you have no knowledge This is all unseen. So you close that door completely and you say no, if you are genuine Muslim, right? You go to a scholar you learn from them

00:33:53--> 00:34:21

go to a scholar, you go for them, you tell them that you're genuine learn from them, but for me, you know don't have no connection. Don't think that they can help you right? It's not it's not the same as seeking help from a human being for human beings you know, the limits you know, they're trying to harm you what they're how they try to harm you hit the gym. It's a holy it's a very different thing. So yes, no, that's not we're not allowed to connect with the gym like that.

00:34:23--> 00:34:33

Says the music is how about how about the money earned from a singer especially woman singer? Can they do so the hours the care from the income? And I mean, they should stop.

00:34:34--> 00:34:43

They should stop. So a woman especially a female, especially a female singing that's not allowed, even though she'd by the way.

00:34:44--> 00:34:49

I hope that there's not, you know, Shockers not allowed to sink.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Okay, for a female especially for a female, right? You're not allowed to sing with music and even if there is no music, you're not allowed to sing in the sheet.

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

publicly like that, maybe just for with females female for females to have in the sheets, but who earns a living like that only for females, right? So when you broadcast this males and females are listening to this, this is all not allowed.

00:35:17--> 00:35:33

So you've got to stop immediately. Right? And then you can of course you can give sadaqa from that you can give us a cat from that, but money earned from it is questionable. So if you if you're a person who is like that, stop immediately immediate, does not handle income right.

00:35:37--> 00:36:14

Now Barack Baraka love, he's motivated by the will of Allah subject. So it's not power is not money that did not concern them. And Subhana Allah, and this is again, you know, I wanted to connect it with this is how the prophets a lot he was hitting him was on so when people say about why did Muslims expand, and they have armies, and it wasn't about money, personally, man, it wasn't about money. It was about that there is a structure that is stopping them from seeing the truth, obeying Allah. So as long as they have this power over the city or this, you know, whole land, they will continue to propagate what disbelief in Allah xuejun. So they have to lose that power for them to do

00:36:14--> 00:36:29

to see the truth. And so the Queen of Sheba, when she lost, she saw something that was beyond what she could imagine, right beyond anything that she had. And she is about to lose this power, only then that her eyes were opened. And so this is what sometimes needs to happen.

00:36:34--> 00:36:40

Now, is it allowed for a female to teach in public for a mixed audience? So it's a good question, but you

00:36:42--> 00:36:57

you see that when I shoveled the yellow on hand, this is not only because she was the wife of the Prophet, slowly send them we know that Irish is the best teacher, female teacher ever to come. When she used to teach, how would she teach behind the curtain?

00:36:58--> 00:37:22

But it's really explicit, right? Ashley? Ilana had a curtain and whenever somebody is a mom of her, was it they would come to see Aisha, if there's a Muslim and non Muslim. The non Metro mean he's not supposed to see hurt, he would be behind the curtain. The Mahara, like, at the library does have a let's see, right, he would come up for a cross from under the curtain and come and see her.

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

So there was a curtain.

00:37:28--> 00:37:33

female teachers also later on the She's the daughter of a scout or this she would teach behind the door.

00:37:35--> 00:37:53

Alright, so this is how they used to teach. So based on that, right, the problem is, and I know that there are some organizations and listen that when they will say otherwise will lie on them, but I'm just telling you what I believe and Allah knows the best they have female teachers and they will teach and they teaching a mixed audience.

00:37:54--> 00:38:26

The problem is that, okay, when this female is sitting there, she's teaching and you're a male, you're sitting and staring at her, right? Like, typically, right? If it's on online, or you know, in person you're sitting, and typically, right, because your ears or if you want to listen to what that person is saying, typically your eyes follow your ears, you're not going to look at the ground, you're following your your ears, and you're looking at her staring staring at her face. And a lot of them are young, female Muslims,

00:38:27--> 00:38:33

they did the thing that that is really appropriate to staring at the woman for such a long time.

00:38:34--> 00:38:46

And some of them, you know, they'll be kidding and joking and you know, laughing and smiling at after a time as as as a male. Right, especially right, you would not be attracted to that female after some time.

00:38:48--> 00:39:00

So the thing is that I don't recommend this. I don't think that that is advisable. I don't think that it is right. If a female wants to teach in front of a of a mixed audience that are made of non the Hatton

00:39:01--> 00:39:09

that has to be a barrier by voice that she can teach Bibles. This is the tradition of our self.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

But what is happening today? I don't see that that is permissible. Well, Lola, right.

00:39:20--> 00:39:43

Can you we just do the care the shortest Salawat always is sort of Allahu alayhi wasallam. Yes. And he saw that he was set up so the law he was setting them up solo, it was him and he saw that we certainly could do that and show. I'm thinking just as I think right. Instead of seeing a longer thicker alarm on Sunday, I know Mohammed, Mohammed, you can say Allahu Salatu was Salam anyhoo Salatu was Salam and Salatu was Salam.

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

So a lot right.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

Let me answer that question of yesterday, inshallah, then come back to your question today. So the question is about yesterday was about donating here, female here to a Cancer Society for weeks.

00:40:00--> 00:40:23

So there are a lot of things, you know, connected to that question in sha Allah. So, a donating hair is allowed selling hair is not. So that's one thing donating here is allowed, selling it or selling any part of your body is not allowed because we don't own it. So that's one. Now, hair extensions, because that leads us to hair extensions, hair extensions are not allowed.

00:40:24--> 00:40:31

Right. And there's some of the, you know, disagreement about whether, if hair extensions are not made from natural hair, but made from

00:40:33--> 00:40:47

you know, unnatural material, are they allowed or not as long as they don't look like here, right. So a healthy person that wants to put hair extensions or a wig on their head. Whether this is made from of

00:40:49--> 00:41:27

human hair, or something that looks like human hair, we say this is this is not allowed because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam disallowed it, because there's deception in that. Some scholars allow hair extensions that are clearly don't look like human hair, not made from human hair or something that looks like human hair. But that is one opinion. Other scholars just disallow anything anyway, it's just I'm giving you inshallah the larger picture, because this also could be relevant, because a lot of people may put on hair extensions, not knowing that hair extensions are not allowed. Now, a woman in particular, another male, a woman who had lost all of her hair for cancer, because of cancer, or

00:41:27--> 00:41:30

another disease, she has nothing on top of

00:41:31--> 00:41:35

it, she allowed to put a wig on or not. So some scholars allow it.

00:41:37--> 00:41:41

And in that specific circumstance, because of

00:41:42--> 00:42:10

the Let's call the psychological pain that she goes through whenever someone looks at her. And she can't hide the fact that she had gambled. Or this This allowed it This allowed even in that case, but the scholars who allow what they say in that case, because she has no hair on top of her head, and there is that emotional side to it. So in addition to the physical pain with cancer, she has this also psychological emotional pain.

00:42:11--> 00:42:32

So if he cannot, or is not satisfied with the fact of just putting hijab or a head cover on top of her head, and just going about her day, just like that, he says if that's not enough for her, and she needs it psychologically, emotionally, it also could help her insha Allah in healing this in that case, it's allowed

00:42:33--> 00:43:19

in that limited circumstances area is Allah. So if you donate for that, well lo Allah, it's all up. So donate you donate your hair. To me, it's too big to be made in two weeks for cancer society to help women right cope with the fact that they've lost their hair until inshallah they can come back and their hair could be grown after they heal Neela as the origin, then they say it's allowed because of that we'll just keep in mind in sha Allah that wearing a wig if you're healthy is not allowed. And if you can do without it, then do without it. But if not, then in that limited case and for that reason, Allahu Allah, it is allowed. Now for female when she cuts her hair just make sure

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

insha Allah, it is not cut to the extent that it is too short, that it starts resembling a male's cut a male's haircut. So females hair should always be long enough. Not not extremely long, but long enough that it is distinctly different from a male's haircut and a male's head. Right well ah like

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

so we answered this about the solo ad.

00:43:49--> 00:44:07

salado Scylla Yeah, medical vehicle is donating your organs allowed? Yes, it's allowed inshallah, so you can donate your organs. There's some women who are married and they're wearing hijab, and later on, they took off the hijab, because they see their husband looking other women. What advice can you give to this particular person?

00:44:09--> 00:44:50

Okay, do you want to go to Hellfire just because your husband is an idiot? And this one I'm going to say? So I mean, all of us, right? All of us are weak or weak. All of us, and all of us are tempted. And all of us are idiots when we look at other women who are not wearing hijab, because Subhanallah it's a fitna. And that's why we're telling all women use of candlelight. Wear your hijab, because Don't be a fitna for another man or another woman because this woman asked this to describe by this question had taken off her hijab, because other women are so attractive when they are outside that she feels that I'm not less attractive. So I'm going to take off my hijab as well. So you have

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

caused another woman that you don't know about this, but you did cause it to take off the rage up. So her sin is now in your neck as they say

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

You carry.

00:45:02--> 00:45:23

That's what we're saying to anybody. You know, it's not just an individual freedom that I don't want a job, I just want to look beautiful. So you exit to your house like that. You're responsible for every male and female who sees you. And their heart changes because of it and their practice changes because of it. So it's how long it's an extended hold on that you carry with you, maybe after your death.

00:45:25--> 00:46:01

So you have responsibility as a female. It's not just that this is a fitna for males. This is a fitna for females, several responsibility for a female to be pious when you leave your house. So that's that. But as a female, right that I see my husband and he's looking at those other females. They This is fitna for him, pray for him. That is a thing that is a sin that is written against him. Do you want to follow him on that path? You can remind him this is haram don't look. And don't consider that just simply that he's looking at somebody else that that that makes them more beautiful.

00:46:03--> 00:46:15

That tons of powder and makeup on someone's face doesn't make them more beautiful. It's just a panela at that moment that makes them and that makeup makes them more attractive, but remove all of that.

00:46:17--> 00:46:21

And even your husband when he looks at them, he says What is this?

00:46:22--> 00:46:24

That's now really what was that I was attracted to.

00:46:26--> 00:46:35

So if you feel deficient, less because of it, don't it's just simply that that layer of makeup and powder, what do you go home in sha Allah put that off.

00:46:37--> 00:47:03

You know, I mean, have a beautiful hair, do makeup, perfume and all of this and look as beautiful as you can in front of your husband so that he's not looking at other women not giving them an excuse. I'm just seeing this is a fitna for him. So do all of this at home. And insha Allah He will know how beautiful you are. Remind him also that don't look at the outside. And this is a reminder for our brothers. Because the more that you look at

00:47:05--> 00:47:25

women like that the more that you're gonna sad and your wife and then she looks at herself, look at me, I'm leaving my house with this modest hijab, no makeup, no powder, no this no that she feels less about herself. She feels that he she's not beautiful, she feels that she's ugly. And you're doing that to her by looking or pointing even the beauty of other women outside don't do that.

00:47:26--> 00:47:41

And for the woman insha Allah when you go home and put all this on, you'll feel better about yourself and your husband insha Allah will see all of this and he'll know that Allah and Stuart have blessed him. And ultimately, finally insha Allah if you follow those women who are putting on this makeup and that

00:47:43--> 00:48:09

the purify themselves if you follow them, they will lead you to where Johanna? Because the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam said sinfonie methylene nadiem Allah Homer, it says two categories of the people of Hellfire I did not see them. One of them he said so Allah, why do you send them manisa on Marina to me that Garcia tuna yet he said women who are married are deviant, causing people to deviate

00:48:10--> 00:48:13

kaseya to the higher yet clothed and naked,

00:48:14--> 00:48:22

meaning partially clothed. So he said two categories of the people of Hellfire that I did not see yet meaning they weren't there to come.

00:48:24--> 00:48:40

And those were one of them. So when you're looking at a woman, online, on TV, or in real life, and she's dressed like that, and you're attracted to her, and you think oh, this is beautiful, you're really attracted to someone who's leading you were terrified.

00:48:41--> 00:48:52

So rethink that in sha Allah and we think where that attraction is leading you and reconsider in sha Allah what your eyes are seeing and how that is tempting. You will love

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

Okay, shall I? So there's something here.

00:49:02--> 00:49:07

TV drama and let me see here. What advice can you give to who wanting to get closer to Allah

00:49:09--> 00:49:38

but still hurtful, influenced by your friends, so she wants to be closer to Allah azza wa jal, but she is pulled back by her friends. That means that your friends are not good friends. And I think we previously talked about the influence of friends right when he said, Let only the pious eat your food, and only be friend the pious. So that means that these are not good friends and they're not good influences. You really have to rethink their friendship and what that is doing too.

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

So in sha Allah,

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

pray to Allah assertive, to give you better friends, to change your friends, and know that not everything that they are suggesting is good for you. So start looking for other friends. I'm not telling you at this time because maybe you say I don't have anybody else. If

00:50:00--> 00:50:30

You're strong enough, you'll say if they are a bad influence, I don't want to see them anymore. If you're strong enough, if you're not that strong yet, just ask Allah for better friends and start looking for them. So what we were hoping would happen in sha Allah is that they will off balance that influence, you'll start learning from other people. Right? So hopefully Chela just make up for that and make that to add to Allah to give you guidance, better friends and more strength to say no to their influence, do that inshallah.

00:50:31--> 00:50:39

And TV dramas are taking time from that his wife rice Yeah, you're watching TV and the dramas and you know that

00:50:40--> 00:51:07

those actresses right there no Subhan Allah there's 510 or more people behind her making her look this beautiful, that attractive on her own right now all those actors that you see on movies or whatever whether they are males beautiful or with muscles or what have you, or females who are so beautiful so attractive dresses or what have you. You understand that there are specialists behind them

00:51:11--> 00:51:17

trainers and then makeup artists and then costume designers and

00:51:18--> 00:51:25

people behind them that are making them look this attractive and this beautiful without all of this they look exactly like you

00:51:26--> 00:51:42

so don't let that in shot a lot kind of superficial appearance tempting. Although Adam right? This is just fantasy. Like if you see something science fiction on TV, are you going to start believing that this is how people are living? Of course not so everything else is fiction, absolute fiction alone

00:51:44--> 00:52:23

$100 Bill and I mean May Allah azzawajal enable us inshallah to continue to worship Him in this these nights of Ramadan.
