So humbly that Allah has given us all this and we ask Allah to accept from us everything that we've done in Ramadan, that he forgives, what we have missed, forgives what we have done wrong, and that Allah azzawajal had forgiven us I mean, we asked before the end of this month that Allah is completely forgive us. So between the two of Ramadan we are forgiven, and we hope from Allah as evident that his forgiveness would extend to everything that we have done Previous to that, so that we are the people of gentlemen we have deserved to be the people of gender through His mercies panel with Allah And then we've escaped from the punishment of hellfire. I mean, you're open I mean and

So in sha Allah this today's session is the last session in the series and it is about eight. And then lo I mean, we still have the 30th of Ramadan for some of us, we still have the 29th to finish. And then beyond that, we still have the 30th of Ramadan and some of us hadn't already started the 13th or Milan in some parts of the world today. So we realize that except from everybody, no matter where you are, all of us are united in this Ramadan and all of us are united in what happens to this almost I mean Allah azzawajal writes cement this unity and increase the love that we have for each other and make us all feel like we are part of one oma not fragmented by geography or by color or by
language but they're all of us have one common purpose and that common purpose is the pleasing Allah zildjian through what we do on this earth.
So for aid in sha Allah, so he said, as I'm talking about he they also don't want us to forget that we still have one day to finish so don't skip that day. And maybe in sha Allah I'll come back and show a lot to remind all of us of that don't skip that day meaning thinking that one day or one night is left for there's no need to do anything in it. It's still one night of Ramadan and one day of Ramadan and it's still Ramadan so as you still insha Allah getting ready and maybe excited for a Don't forget about that you still are in Ramadan itself so don't empty that night empty that day of your dua because still accepted of your fasting of your soda is still needed. We still need it. So
don't empty it insha Allah those virtuous acts because it is these acts that make this a possible so Subhan Allah Okay, so let's begin inshallah, what do we want to talk about?
And if you have questions I see here questions about insurance and Long Term Disability Insurance, and shall I just strike your questions and shed light? And if I'm able, if I can answer them, I'll answer them. charlo This is coming from Instagram. So Aiden Sharla. So what we want to do when you're talking about eight we want to talk about matters and we don't get to talk about meaning. The meaning of read and the matters of agent Charlotte. Hopefully we can take this and we can
experience a maybe at a better level, a deeper level and enjoy it. Maybe
Even more In short, a lot of it I mean, if ally enables us to do this, keeping in mind of course that all of us or maybe most of us are experiencing aids still under some conditions of lockdown. So are we going to be able to create a lot of places? Maybe not? Are we able to going to be to see family? Maybe that will be very limited. So under these circumstances, what does it mean? So we're going to talk about also the matters of aid in general but also try to discover the meaning of aid so that even with some of these things or without some of these things that we have gotten used to in a still the ages eight in Sharla we should do our best to celebrate it and to enjoy it with Neela
xojo. So when you finish Ramadan and when you finish the day of Ramadan right, this is happens by magic.
And you break your fast and you begin the night of eight
you break your fast and you begin the night of eight that's when the night of eight begins and Ramadan ends.
So when that happens and it's a good fit, the first thing that happens is that that night of eight, right till the morning until you pray eight is an eight of tech B and the morning of tech lead
is a night and a morning of tech lead. So Allah xuejun mentions it in the Quran. And that is enough of an emphasis that it be mentioned in the Quran. You read below hope you can use Lola UT to become an Ursula once is for you not difficulty when he took me to it the only two can be roula Allah ma kumada Allah contest Quran so Allah is of it says so that when you follow us command and you fast Ramadan, you complete the dates of Ramadan. Okay, the assigned date of fasting, what do you do can be the last word that you say, beautiful Allah to Allah azzawajal for what he had guided you to, and so that you'd be thankful. So we are saying this to Kabir to thank Allah azzawajal and to announce
his guidance, meaning Allah xuejun Why are we doing this stick beard when we saying Allah, Allah?
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, but when he learned him, that's one form of decree. Why were you saying this technique which begins why, you know, when you break your fast all that night,
but let's look at the meaning and then I will share with you the application. It is to thank Allah zildjian for his guidance to mark this as a special day. Hey, I have just finished Ramadan. And do you know what it means that I finished on Milan, that Allah had handed me this gift of his all this month 29 or 30 days, where I am fasting and praying, fasting and praying and making sure I'm remembering Allah as I'm going through some easy days, but then some difficult days, some days were physically difficult. Some things were psychologically difficult, but I've gone through all of that, hoping from Allah xeljanz to Grand means forgiveness. And for me to be freed from Hellfire to gain
Jenna all this is a bounty is a NEMA is about different Allah xuejun. So now that you finished it, you feel this NEMA. You feel this NEMA. So our aid and this is going to be the first and one of the most important stops insha Allah and again, I'll come back to it at the end about aid is that why is it that we were celebrating we're celebrating the guidance of Allah that He had given us this Ramadan, the opportunity to cleanse yourself free yourself of sin that you can when Jenna at that conclusion of this 30 days, that your life improves because of it, your love improved because of it.
Your spirituality improves because of it, how you deal with money, how you deal with family, how you deal with yourself matures because of it if Allah had allow us to experience all of this or put us on the footsteps, of recognizing all of these realities, just because maybe I wasn't able now in this particular Ramadan to experience all of this. But one Ramadan is a stepping stone towards that realization whether it happens in between normal bonds or the in the next Ramadan, the philosophy that extends our lives. So these are meaningful realization that Allah Zoda is the most important thing that I have in my life. just realizing this is a net amount. And you will only realize this
Nemo when you realize that so many people or other people are really deprived of it. They don't know Allah. They don't know the prophets already said and they don't know the meaning of life, why they were created, why would towards what they're going, what is the purpose of all of this, they don't know all of that. If Allah gives that to the to get better law
Mr. hodda come you are saying Allahu Akbar, for what you have guided us. I know now, that sweet feeling of worshiping Allah being close to him that when something that happens to me, I'm not alone.
When I'm depressed, and I'm sad, I'm not alone. When I'm afraid about the future, I'm not alone. I know that I can have a loss, I can lean on Allah. And he makes everything better. When there is some bad episodes in my past or some difficult realities at this moment, I'm not alone. Allah is with me. And he had promised me that if I'm patient, he will compensate me and he will erase all of my pain and all my sadness. That realization visa requires Allah, Allahu Akbar, for this, Allah hookah but I realized all of that Allah what I've experienced all of this, Allahu Akbar, I was able to see Ya Allah, and I felt better because of it. Allahu Akbar, for all of that Allah Akbar, for the
opportunity that I've done terrible things. But now, all that could be forgiven Allahu Akbar, for all of this. So that's the term of the Kabir and while you were saying to Kabir so it started some memory and you can fill your entire night with it, you and your children and your wife and your family and your parents. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allah who is praising Allah as noted at the end, and keep saying this as you are preparing your food, washing the dishes,
cleaning the house.
So panel of vacuuming, this is male or female, right? Going in sha Allah getting the house ready, even if there are no guests coming, but you get in house ready for eight
nights for your own self, right?
So you're fixing the house, you're fixing yourself, changing the sheets? Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and you say it loud enough. So that the whole house especially especially, especially if you have kids, but not only if you have kids, why do I say especially if you have kids, because this experience will influence the rest of their lives you're going to they are going to remember their following aids through what their parents have done or their grandparents have done. It is your behavior on it in aid, that is going to cover the rest of eat for the rest of their lives. They'll always look back at this and they will say my parents used to do
this during ait
and it will matter and will care they will carry this on in sha Allah when they celebrate that need when they're old with their own children and family. So especially when you have children but it doesn't stop there it is also for you to notice that this is a special day to honor that day and we'll talk about this in sha Allah. So you say this tech beer throughout the night before you go to bed when you wake up, when does it stop it stops all the way until or it goes all the way until you arrive to the masala and in the masala until you prayed.
So some of us some of us are going to be praying in the masala for eight in some countries and in some cities, others are not. And that's fine insha Allah will be praying and eat at home.
So you pray you continue your tech been until you start your Salah at home so that would eat at home. So that is the time for tech lead. And the seller used to do it the Sahaba used to do with the tablet he used to do it so emphasize that emphasize it and don't discard it don't say well I'm alone. I don't have anybody around me. This is part of honoring the days of Allah as an honoring the worship of Allah as of the days that are special to Allah that Allah loves and he wants you to love so say thank you and you will feel insha Allah and joy inside of you that you're honoring what Allah Allah wants to honor so now we have technique.
Now of course in sha Allah you can pray your pm you can pray your ledger vanilla xojo you don't miss those Nila xojo so that will eat okay when does that solitude eight begin and what are how do you pray it? Well before you head to solitude eight if you're going to pray that on the in the masala or in the masjid or you're praying it at home there are some signals associated with eight What are those soon as associated with a bathing showering before you go to the masala at the beginning of the day before you pray showering bathing. So the Sahaba used to do that. And we know that this is a sooner in Fridays. So Fridays, which are that weekly. They are it says sooner to be than show. So
there's a hub I did the same for a good fit of an eagle. So we say it's the same thing and it's a panel. It just energizes you and it makes you feel that this is a special day that
gonna come. And let's celebrate that a by doing this the whole family everybody handles their showers and the bead at the beginning of the day before you head out to the masala to the masjid for a day or before you pray at home. So that's one sooner the better you want to do, though the sooner that you want to do inshallah, what do you get to pick your clothes for eight,
whether you are going out,
or whether you're spending eight, inside and praying inside, choose the clothing. Maybe you say well, I don't have eight clothing, it's a good idea in sha Allah to have a clothing. It doesn't have to be new clothing that you buy every eight and every year. It doesn't have to be it's can. So if you bought new clothes for eight and hamdulillah May Allah bless that for you unless your money and bless you know what you've spent and make, make it for Allah sake, bring that out and wear that and let your children wear that. So you feel that this is a special day. Allah rewards you by the way when you do this for Allah sake, to honor this day and celebrate it Allah reward you for what you
are doing for what you've spent. So imagine you're spending something
for the sake of Allah zone, you're sending something that you enjoy you buying something new spending on what you're going to be eating and drinking and Allah reward you for it. So get the new clothes out, you don't have those you can have just assigned for yourself a clothing, special eight clothing that you wear every year and every eight. Get that out, put it on, right. If not, you don't have that any
clothes that you've just washed, they smell good. Put that on. So that is another sinner of aid or another manner of eight new clothing or special clothing or just wash clothing for each so that you'd feel that there's something special about it. So now we've made a special clothing for eight, put it on perfume, right? If you're heading out for males only not females, male and females when we leave the house insha Allah they both should be dressed modestly. Not in striking attractive colors don't pick the best clothing that you have, and go out to eat so that's a common mistake right? Know when you head out as a female insha Allah modest clothing that do not attract attention. Yes, you're
allowed to celebrate, eat insha Allah that that celebration is reserved for you inshallah when you come back home among family, but when you go to the masjid and masala modest clothing and don't put perfume on as a female when you leave the house. Don't put makeup on as a female when you leave the house. Your aid does not you don't start your eat like that. That would be a sin.
But for males, yes, you can put on your best clothing in sha Allah. And when you leave perfume,
perfume for the sake of Allah zildjian perfume because it's eight and it's a special day and you'll be meeting other Muslims, even if you're not have hugging and handshaking but at least you're meeting other Muslim and to honor the date. Okay, what if I'm just staying home? Not meeting anybody? Do I do this? See? Absolutely. Because it's not just about
meeting another person. It's also about honoring that date. Feeling that is special. This smell right the smell of eat is important. Psychologically it's affected when you smell this misc musk or rude or whatever smell you like it psychologically affects you that hey, it just enlivens your spirit right? It excites you about the coming day. So please do that for your sake for the sake of Allah so did for the sake of your spouse for the sake of your children for the sake of your parents. They make me maybe down a bit because they can visit other relatives down a bit because they can go to the masjid. But you won't you do this and you are excited about it. And by the way it may Allah
reward you for it if that's your attitude and motivation. If that's the case, you excite other people you'll motivate them you lift their spirits you say yeah hamdulillah it is a special day and they'll get excited. But if they are down and you're down and nobody feels like they want to celebrate and you sit you know back, you know in cutting your couch just lazing you just you're not going to feel either at all. So if you're not going to invest something in your ad, you're not going to feel it. So it's up to you. It's up to you and me. So put an effort in sha Allah in making this eight special and every eat special. So perfume on and if you're a female praying at home
hamdulillah you're alright with your husband, you are with your kids. Put on the best clothing that you have when you get up praying in sha Allah, even if they are colorful and what have you that's, that's permissible. There's no non Muharram around you put on perfume permissible, that that's that you're inside your house, so that you can pray and shall
add to this inshallah before your Salah whether you're heading out or you are praying at home.
You break your fast meaning you eat before the solder dates and you make them odd number of dates that is the son of the Prophet salaallah audio send them so before he hits out to the masala before they head out to the masala they would eat he would eat a lot he was sending him dates and he would make them odd numbers it 135 go crazy you want 711 711 right see one seven or 11 whatever you want in shot so it was skipped 979 or 11 fine.
So eat that insha Allah that is so not why is that as soon as because you rush to break your fast and to distinguish it from Ramallah so it's not a day of fasting so you eat dates inshallah you don't have dates you ran out of dates, anything anything that you have, so that the idea there in Sharla is just to break your fat
so hamdulillah you've been you have your new clothes on you have the perfume on you just eat in your dates. Time for Sadat right time for you sada if you're going to be praying outside and we're just making that assumption because I don't know how many or where you're listening from and how many people can do this. If you're praying outside, you just simply head to the masala to the masjid with your tech via Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allah Illallah Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar in
another form to it Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Al Qaeda Allahu Akbar Raja Maha Donna whatever insha Allah you've memorized whatever you're familiar with.
Do you have to the masala you follow the man is doing oh and yes, by the way that so that we don't forget, as a captain fit. You make sure insha Allah that you feed the cattle fitter already I hope that you've done that if not, contact your local local Masjid right away and find out how you can praise a cattle fitter or go online and see if they still receive the cattle further in some charitable organizations and bait paid as soon as possible, but I hope inshallah that you've paid it but if not, there's still time since the counterfeiter is paid okay.
So Salah to eat in the masala you follow the Imam is doing if not in the masala if you cannot go outside your house to press a lot to eat
How do you pray that home so this is so that your eight inshallah in brief and it is very simple. If you prayed it before you remember how to pray it is basically to look at what is the time of solitude ah start it is the same time for solitude.
So 15 minutes after sunrise to 15 minutes before then on board, all that time is solitary.
So again, 15 minutes after sunrise, so for you, then you wait for sunrise, then you wait 15 minutes after sunrise, then that's the time to pray. So that elevate
and it extends all the way so let's say for instance that your sunrise is at hypothetically it's at
six 615 is when you can start praying solidly. Let's say that your Salah for your bullhorn is at one o'clock 1245 is when you would be able to stop or you should stop for solidarity. So all that time is so naturally right at praying it earlier is better and better. Right? praying it early is better and better. How do you pray it now you're home?
And you can't go to the masjid How do I prayed prayed in Jamaat it's sooner or it is a follow up fe obligation on the collective anyway prayed because it is a valuable and an important sign up. Right? How do you pray? It's Torah Cass you have an email, okay, the mail will lead to the solder and the people are behind. Allahu Akbar. Okay, you start your Salah just like any other solder. So the total number of tech be in the first urraca is seven. Total number of tech we have in the first record is seven. So you would say seven times consecutively alone.
Then you start just like any other record just like any other sellout you read certain Fatiha you will read the surah after Rocha answer, dude.
Then you rise Allahu Akbar. And when you stand, you give us five technique.
Allah or consecutive plug. Okay, you know you're familiar with the how that is done. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Let Amanda says it says this and the people behind him the congregation follows what are you done with that? You just finished yourself out like any other rock out the fact you have and then a Surah ruka answered Santa Monica Rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. That's it. It's very simple insha Allah. Now the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam if you want to follow it is, you know, in the first workout, so his model began
in the second Rockefeller takahito
Unless you do I have to recite these two sutras. You don't have to any short surah we do in shall any short surah that you recite will do inshallah, if you can do this soon as is wonderful if you cannot then that's enough inshallah
you finish your Salah Al Hamdulillah you don't have to go You don't have to do the hotbar right, the hot one is in the congregation in the masjid, right. And listening to the hook, oh, by the way is a sinner. Right, but you could have regulations where the hookah is very short because of the lockdown conditions right. If you wish to stay, you can stay if you wish not to stay because you feel it's safest to leave you can leave in sha Allah, it's not sinful to leave so you can leave in sha Allah and you head back home at least you prayed But either way, pray Salat Allah aid whether in the masala in domestic or at home. And
then the rest of the day is up to you in sha Allah to do as you wish and as you luck with with your family. Now, the sooner in aid and it's supposed to have been aid at OCR quality,
meaning increasing your spending on aid compared to other days of that year or other hours on average day.
Increasing your spending on eating and drinking and
entertainment so that you'd feel that it is eight. So that you would celebrate that day, if you live it is special, you would enjoy it. So if you do it with that intention, Allah reward you for it. So again, subpanel I want you to notice here how you're spending to eat you're spending to drink you're spending you buy yourself something new, you're buying your kids something new, but Allah rewards you for it. So associate as well as increasing or spending more on that date within reason, of course, right? But spending more in compare in comparison to other days of the year, to yesterday and the day after. So you buy extra food, he you eat special food, you drink special drinks, you
have had an entertainment, whatever is available inside the house or outside the house, and you entertain yourself and you entertain your spouse and you entertain your kids. So that you they feel that this is a blessing from Allah zodion. And this is special. One is to remember in sha Allah that the celebration of non Muslims are so attractive because they invest in those days. They decorate they publicize, they sell they spend money on them. And they invest or inject a lot of energy, a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of interest in those days. So Muslims, we as Muslims, we look at those days, you look at that marvelous lights, look at the celebrations, look at the songs, look at the gifts,
look at all of these things. And as human beings, we look at that. And we say we want that. We want to be happy, we want to enjoy you want to give to you on special things, special food, special science, what have you, we want these things. And when we have when we empty our aid of all of these things, and we just sit back and we're lazy to do anything special, of course our kids are going to grow craving the non Muslim celebrations, and not only them we, we, when we look at Christmas later on, right when it comes when we look at Thanksgiving, when we look at any other celebration, and they spend so much money on it, and we haven't done our job when it comes to our aid. Of course,
we're going to wish for that and ignore our aids, we need to switch all of this and make most of our spending on our aid so that we get satisfied. We honor Allah azza wa jal on that special day and we honor Islam on that special day and we celebrate something that Allah had given us, which is the day of eat. So what's the Oh ALLAH and fusi come when that day comes by something special, cook something special on me. And I'm not going to say is not saying that this is the meaning of eight, we're going to talk about the meaning of eight. But it is definitely a way to express joy on a cook something special.
Don't be lazy, or I'm so away from family. This is in fact, more of a reason for you to do all of this. Okay?
Still, you could be connecting with family insha Allah, this is one of the things that we should do on aid. But don't say that I'm so done. Because I'm so far away from family, I'm not going to do anything. I'm so down because I couldn't go to the masjid. So I'm not going to do anything. I couldn't go and visit people and then visit me so I'm not going to do anything. I don't feel like it's eight. So I said, I've quit and I'm not gonna I'm just cancelled this aid, maybe we'll
think about the next eight. We're doing this primarily for the sake of Allah zoji.
If Allah Allah did not allow us to visit other people's still we have other aspects of eight to celebrate. And we're celebrating eight for Ramadan before because of the gifts of Ramadan. So the celebration of each stage, no matter how many people
Visit us or we visit,
the celebration of eat continues it's because of the law firm of Allah zodion that the law firm of Allah sees because we cannot go out and pray that Allah stopped because we couldn't visit relatives that I'm of Allah is still there. So say Thank you Your Allah, say Alhamdulillah cabbie Rila elevate Allah and thank him because of his he Dahlia and hamdulillah that Allah had enabled me to fast 30 days to pray 30 days to make the other 30 days, I am closer to Allah because of all of this. And Allah wants me now to save hamdulillah through eating and drinking, Are you not going to do this? So I want you in sha Allah to do all of that. So what's your idea and foresee come so cook something
Or buy a bite from outside something special, drink something special, where something special design that day so once this Allah is over, what are you going to do with your kids in sha Allah games at home, and what something had out at home, go outside, maybe you're not you're not allowed maybe to travel within certain distances or visit other people, but maybe within certain distance you can go out, just observe your local regulations that Allah see not breaking the law, but within the regulations that you have. You can go maybe outside and take a tour of the city, maybe you can go outside and buy something from a special place taking the kids outside, you go outside as well.
But do something, do something so that you feel that it's special and do something for their sake, for the sake of your spouse for the sake of your parents for the sake of your children. And ultimately also for the sake of Allah zoji and if we cannot connect with relatives physically, in sha Allah we can do this in sha Allah

That's what you tell your kids right whatever you wish for you mean like video games and you know I hope your kids are not playing video games but you mean like this may mean like that in your slides and you know candy and this he say whatever you wish for right is
going to be there when you meet a lawsuit that is the really the up below me know I mean come that's why we're doing all of that right. I just noticed this question gift giving an eighth is that how that absolutely Hello, is this is the this is what this is a custom This is an oath in some societies in some cultures he exchanged money, right.
Some societies and cultures the exchange gifts are permissible inshallah nothing nothing against it. And this is something that's going to bring joy joy to you and family members go ahead and do it may Allah bless you for all of this. So this is insha Allah eat right and if I've missed something, maybe I've missed something but if I missed something, let me know in sha Allah about it. Now as far as like manners for eat or as far as things that should be done in eight so if you have anything inshallah put that in the comments article off equal. Now I want to say inshallah, just briefly about the meaning of read and then we'll talk to you take your questions, the meaning of aim. All of
the things that we talked about new clothes, our our special clothes, perfume, bathing, special food special bring, just basically being happy the greeting, all of these are expressions of joy,
expressions of celebrations, these are the visuals and the smells of eat and they are really so important in aid by the way they have to be there I'm emphasizing, make sure that they are there the visuals of aid and the smells of aid, you make sure that they are there and get get your children by the way involved in that if you say my children are home and they're bored and they don't know what to do with aid, it's not about sitting them in front of the TV and just watch TV get them ready in getting ready for eight by the way, get the house right before he
helped me cooking for eight teaching the recipe of this cookie this cake that meal for eight male or female it doesn't matter get them involved as they were sitting with you cooking and baking and cutting and cleaning, talk about eat aid when you're young. Get their grandparents on the phone of the grandparents are alive or their uncles and aunts get them on the phone let them talk to them about aid when they were young Oh used to do this and we used to do that experience this experience that make this trim this whatever it like down you're in into an opportunity.
I don't know I'm being too optimistic or not. But I think we can do this a ticket into an opportunity of bringing the family together we have the means right? You have the gadgets, you have the connections, bring the family together spend hours on the night of eat together or in the morning of eat together talking to each other What are you eating? What are you cooking? What are you doing as if you're always all together? But let them talk to your kids on you talk to your nephews and cousins you know about eight
we used to do this and we used to live like that and now I'm cooking this and I'm doing that and this is how you cook it try it at home somehow to make it a life okay inject life into it. So what I wanted to say all these things are important, but these things are expressions of joy.
Ah the visuals and the smells right the sights of eight.
And I know we're missing that specially outside May Allah xojo bring that if you're missing it may Allah zoodle bring it again.
Soon so that you see it and enjoy it and you feel it inside. But that is not really the joy of eight.
Okay, that's not the joy of it, the real joy of eight, the real joy of it stems from Allah xeljanz. And some, some are a bad and the opportunity to do it. Because we're not happy because we're eating and drinking. That's, that's an expression. Okay, it's an expression of what, why is what is the thing that is making you happy, and why you might seem all of this in case, in case, okay, you're spending eight alone and there's not a lot of people around you. And that is difficult.
In case you're experiencing some hardship, and you can't spend a lot of money on it as you used to before.
And that is not easy.
can eat as much as you used to foreign buy as much as you used to before.
In case in case in case, right, you're disconnected. A lot of us are like that, in case you're just simply feeling down.
The fact is that you can visit people or you can spend a lot of money or you can give gifts or cannot receive gifts. That in itself, though is hard. That in itself is not eight.
His children may Allah bless him all that his children will only think and receive aid in terms of gifts, and food and drinking. Okay, and playing outside. And it's important that the that they do this, by the way, it's really important that they do this. And it's important that we do this, I don't want you to say because I'm not a kid, I'm not going to do these things. You go right now and tell if you haven't done anything for aid yet. You go outside and shallow right now, maybe not not immediately. But whatever it's possible, you go and you buy stuff for eat for yourself if you can, even if it's something simple, you're not to spend a lot. If it's hard insha Allah go online and see
if there's something that you can buy online that can be delivered before he for yourself, you have permission and Sharla you're no guilt at all with this. You don't have to spend a lot $5 $10 but something so these are expressions. But if these expressions are not there, it doesn't mean that our eat is not there. Our aid is there even if we are poor and alone,
wanting to feel Allah xojo on the inside.
If Allah had forgiven you in Ramadan, this would be give you joy on the day of eight. What are you saying Allahu Akbar, it should come out from inside your heart, Allahu Akbar, for this and hamdulillah for this Alhamdulillah for this, and then anything small that you have becomes great. Everything, everything simple that you have becomes like a feast evening zildjian because now you're eating something out of joy and contentment that Allah had forgiven and we hope that Allah had done so.
And may Allah, Allah continue to do this and to continue to bless out of hope that whatever difficulty may have passed or may have been or still is, is not going to continue.
is not going to continue even in LA. Because we have hope in Allah xuejun we have hope in Allah that whatever adversity in this life is short lived.
And it will end
and it is followed by Allah has extreme Rama extreme generosity and extreme favours and blessings in this life and when we die and we meet Allah soldier.
So if Allah as diligent as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in the Hadith, if he just puts you in Jenna for a minute and takes you out, all the suffering of this life disappears.
If you just spent a minute in Jenna, how about if you spend an hour in general so all everything that we are experiencing in this life, that even even that difficulty that may have been some days and some nights of Ramadan? Now when you look at it at the end of Ramadan, you look and you say, Subhana, Allah, it's as if it wasn't.
And it was worth it really just for the sake of that forgiveness. And for the sake of me discovering the inner and the deeper meaning of Ramadan, the meaning of Ramadan, yeah, we stayed away from food to discover Allah zodion we stayed away from what we like to discover a greater like and a greater love, which is really the hereafter that he has a look and take these things, but we still have email I'm still have a man with less food and less, less sleep and less water, I still have email. So even if on the day of eight if I have less relatives around me, less food around me less drinks around me less money around me, it doesn't mean that you can be less happy.
Your happiness stems from Allah zildjian and from expecting the best from Allah. So when you eat this date, in on aid on the morning of aid, say it hamdulillah I'm expecting the best from Allah. And that hadn't been in there for Ramadan and expecting the best from Allah because of Ramadan. We are like set that
that is the meaning of eight. So it hamdulillah right
We're not in a we have mature Bismillah that we're not on the level of children who only see in ate food and drinks or gifts. Although I've just told you right I want you to also to enjoy ate as adults because of food and drinks and gifts and going out there doing whatever is possible in Sharla do all of these things. It's important and entertainment, hella entertainment, do all of this, because it's really important. But I'm saying don't stop there in sha Allah. Because you know now what is the deeper meaning of aid and that is what the EVA coming close to Allah zodat and expecting the best from him because of Ramadan on the day of aid and outside of Ramadan. So May Allah as of
Jun help us to enjoy it, and May Allah inject happiness in it. And may Allah didn't make it the happiest or some of the one of the happiest days of the year for us, but put an effort into doing that in sha Allah and remember it is connected in Ramadan, so do your best in it and do the manners of Eden sha Allah all of them and don't you know don't look down on any one of them. So I'm just sitting home and you I put on you know, this soap for them just home put on the thobe insha Allah because you will feel better and the more that you honor Allah azza wa jal through these acts, the more that Allah is that it will bless you and honor to be allies that will give us all that I mean,
so inshallah let me and answer as many of these questions as possible in the law.
When two people are praying is it shoulder to shoulder heal to heal? Also when someone is praying near to you do you help them when they forget an idea but you are not praying? Now I'm in sha Allah so when a person is standing right right next to you just two people he has shoulder to shoulder and heal to heal. They don't stand behind you. Right or slightly behind you. Although some of them have they will say this, but the accurate opinion is that you stand shoulder to shoulder Exactly. you line up exactly. Shoulder to shoulder heel to heel. If a person is spring next to you and they forget it they forget that you can correct them and show like even if you're not part of this honor.
So they forget you're not part of the saddle you're outside this or that you can still remind them okay
can a female face a lot to the eighth by herself alone if there's no one at home? Absolutely. Absolutely. Chung so if this is a good question insha Allah just bought a lot of Figgy for bringing this to your attention so there's nobody at home you've just alone right and either male or female do you pray eight and there's no prayer outside? Yes You created by yourself at home or let's say for something that happens sometimes you go to the masala or to the masjid and you find out that what they just finished praying What do I do pray the number Salah by yourself or if you wish come back home and for your eat.
Okay, so if you miss the Gema ajumma you still can pray to eat alone in the masala in the masjid if you wish or you pray it at home. Right or if you catch the Imam in the second breakout okay I know that this is beyond what the question of asked Will you catch the man in the second record in what do you do you join them in the second record. And then when you stand up in the when you stand up when he says sit down you stand up when you bring another cup
and whether you inject the data whether you put the computers in it or not, it doesn't affect your setup.
So that if you catch the amendment the second record so for record the demand and you stand up and now you get a pre the second record. You can do five tech beers you say Allahu Akbar and they say Allahu Allahu Akbar the five or not just prayed in regular Raka and finished that your prayer is valid in Shama
Do we still do to have to send out to the EDS inshallah Yes, so if you're praying your Salah to the eight directly after sunrise you pray your sunrise you're solid theory and then after solid your aid whenever you want inshallah you can pray You're
so absolutely right or if you're solid to eat is delayed a little bit so in them on Sunday or in the masjid, if they've not praying and directly after sunrise and you still have some time for solitude. You can praise a lot of offers up to you so not to have that sort of aid or sort of aid and solitude or whatever, whatever works for you and shall and based you know, on your schedule the rest of the day
and gift giving and read is Helen who said that insha Allah it's fine because it's either it's just a custom shell. I mean, shall let me Allah grant this offer forgiveness and inshallah
so we answered this, what's the rule on exchanging gifts or giving gifts for aid? We said it's permissible in sha Allah because it's not
recommended, and it's also not
discouraged. So it's just a custom you want to exchange things. It's up to the custom of people if they want to do this they can and shovel it. Does this practice imitate Christmas custom, no shot? No. How about distributing aid money.
Is this as the same Dude, that's financial? So you can give aid money or give give it gifts? Right? That's, that's possible. Because in general the profits, a lot of us send them recommended gift giving. So if a person decides that they want to do this in aid, it's up to them. As I said, this is not something that all Muslims do on every
continent in every country. In some countries they do in some countries, they don't. And that tells you that it's just subject to custom, right? So if you want to do it, insha Allah is permissible, and it's either and it's not done an imitation of Christmas. This is something that Muslims have done right long before they've got to know the modern celebration of Christmas right now a lot.
inshallah, so will women who do not have a spouse in this dunya will Allah reward them with a whole man in general, right, or is it only for men? And I'm sure there's nothing now you've got one shot of horror in your horror man, right?
the prophets a lot he was sending them he said that there is no bachelor or Bachelorette in general.
There's no bachelor or Bachelorette in general, right? So anyone who did not get married in this dunya male or female, when they enter Jannah they get married.
Right, they get married. So if a female did not get married in in this dunya when she goes to Jenna, Allah zildjian will match with someone in Jenna fulshear be matched let's say she'll be matched with someone in general. So she will never not remain a bachelorette right or Yanni. Without mala and I'm all you know, and if somebody you know she's a convert and her husband that a DA and he does not accept Islam So anyway, she does not yet know remains unmarried. Right as she was in that dunya so yeah, the rest assured in sha Allah that whatever you wish for, and that's the thing in sha Allah just keep that in mind whatever you wish for. in Jannah you'll receive right whatever you wish for
So that in that state where a lot after I'm like gives you everything and after witnessing the marvelous journey of death and resurrection and or whatever then you wish for Allah will give it to you.
Now, so when people do doing it calf of Masjid when do they go home? So if you're doing it calf, there are two possibilities in sha Allah then you finish your it calf at the end of Ramadan so the end of Ramadan when they are done calls of method and you finish your fast and not now the night of eight you finished it and you head home and then you bathe and shower and what have you fix yourself and you hold it you head to the aid masala that's regular circumstances I don't know a lot of places that have a ticket on earth today maybe some places
other possibility when you're doing it gas is you leave from your ticket to the masala of eight so you're doing a ticket and you finish Ramadan and you spend the night of eight in the Bartek F in the masjid in the masjid allows you right because some students don't. So you spend the Attica you continue that the articles of Night of the aid in the muscle in domestic and then you pray for your in the masjid and then you head outside you head to the masala or if it's not prayed and also they prayed in the masjid you pray to eat in the same message and then you leave
so some people will connect their ethical all the way to a prayer and some will not leave right after insha Allah they finish their Ramadan so it depends right if the masjid allows it or not. And if you can shower at home or if you can shower in the masjid or not because that's the sooner right or that's one of the other so you won't need to shower as well. So this is the masjid allow this are the leave to need to leave the house so that also inshallah the only kind of will dictate when you endure ethical Allah
is a portable compulsory no so we said that that if you're praying and mestizo masala and it's time for an input but you finish the masala and then the potluck comes you don't have to stay you can leave if you wish. So especially if you don't feel safe or it's a gathering or you just simply you just want to leave and get back home as soon as possible. You can do that in Shell and normal circumstances I would recommend to people you know sit down listen to the football and these times.
If you feel unsafe, just head back home
can I know the headaches okay when people doing that? Can I know the headaches so I can share the knowledge with someone who wants it? I don't know attendees that is in Sharla so let me know what that is.
is a football compulsory I just read how do we know which aid machine we can play in the house for the kids? And Shall I look at the sheets that don't have music in them?
Right look at the sheets that don't have music in them. Don't look at entertainment cartoons for kids that don't have music intend to try your best insha Allah so nasheeds with no music and entertainment without any music and Shall I know it's difficult but try it in sha Allah. And I know that some sisters before they did share something about this.
But I don't know their online now if they know what it is in sha Allah so um, maybe if
if they're online, they can share it and if not, I'll ask them in sha Allah to share it later maybe through Facebook or what have you in sha Allah
inshallah So, anyway, in sha Allah just go online, there are some channels
if you have some channels in sha Allah that
kind of like satellite channels or online channels of Islamic channels that broadcast eight songs and eight nasheeds and by that by signs, I mean the sheets
eight intertainment then you have that and you know them to be good and hamdulillah and they follow the whole answer now you can put on that channel and have the kids watch it inshallah that'd be good inshallah. But it's not just about TV can play kids with them at play games with them at home, you can take them outside a little bit, you know, within, you know, the local guidelines that all insha Allah just women live in that he did show
So, taking something sample example dates before April 5, or salah and taking something after either, is it authentic? Yes. Yes, that's authentic.
What a wife has to expect towards her husband to fulfill bless marriage follow Islam, we, because I have read a lot of women expect honesty from husband and marriage. But in Islam, men allow us to marry four wives, the prophet wives jealous to each other? If so, how do they overcome the jealousy? That's a really difficult question to answer at this moment. Right? I can just give you snippets. Okay. So honesty, of course. And so the issue of marrying more than one woman or man or not, it's a complicated one. So it's not advisable at old times. But if a man wants to do this, you have to be absolutely honest with your wife and do not advocate at all hiding that from her. So I don't know if
that's what you're talking about.
Did the wives of the Prophet or the wife of the Prophet sometimes get jealous? Yes, they were. I actually wrote the law of war at times jealous and she was known for being jealous. How did she do this? How did she deal with it? This is a natural, natural feeling that all of us have, as we feel envious at times. And we feel angry at times as we feel any emotion that we have when somebody does something to us or somebody has what we do not have. But the thing is, do we just simply surrender to it? Do you say I'm simply an envious person? That's it? Or do you say I have envy? All of us have it? But I'm dealing with it. And I'm asking Allah does it have to overcome it? So anger is the same
You just say I'm just an angry person. That's it? What do you say I deal with it? Do you say I'm just weak? I can stay away from how long would you say I'm dealing with it? And I have a desire to do the how long but I'm just weak. You say I'm dealing with it. I'm asking Allah to help me. So I'm not here saying that every single man should marry more than one. But I'm saying what Allah is have just allowed it. Okay. He did allow with knowing very well right that some woman or many women will be jealous. Is that a reason to say okay, I'm jealous, that shouldn't happen. It's just to say, okay, there is this feeling. And it's a test from Allah is just like any feeling that we have. You
deal with it in sha Allah right? But it's a complicated question, right? It's hard to answer this because previously when we talked about it, and go in sha Allah because I did talk about it in some detail when we I talked about the series, Islamic ethics, or Islamic etiquette that that will Islamia. There was a portion of sha Allah and that whole series is online on YouTube. So check in sha Allah, their titles to each lecture, when we talk about marriage in sha Allah, just listen to it because we talked about that particular issue insha Allah when it's discussed in some detail, so just about marrying more than one. So inshallah check that out in Shall I think you'll find it
Does that mean that she will not be rewarded if she is divorced? No, absolutely not. I mean, if a woman is married, this is the question if she's not married here, and she goes to Jenna, does that mean that she will not be rewarded in gender with the husband? If she's divorced? No, absolutely not. If you don't have if you're unmarried, this is what I meant. That's what the prophets always meant by it right? If you're unmarried here, whether you are
a bachelorette, never married, or unmarried, divorced, if you're unmarried here, and you are in Jannah, you will be married, you're not going to be able to remain unmarried in general, whether you're male or female. So inshallah put your mind at ease in sha Allah, if a woman is divorced in this world, she not going to be unmarried or what our husband in general she will have asked, right?
Question about noon timing, the time which we are not allowed to do so dude, how can we calculate that this is the time we cannot do any sujood or sonet because timings of sun are constantly changing.
Now I'm so remember when we said the time of eight is about till 15 minutes before I got on board. That's, that's it. So that the time that you're talking about is what so the sun right rises. So let's say this is the horizon. So the sun rises, right, and it continues to rise, rise, rise, and it reaches the highest level in the sky, when it reaches the highest level in the skies, as long as this there, right, until it moves. So when it moves, that's the whole time. So at the highest level in the sky, the zenith
that in what's not allowed for you to pray, it usually takes from 10 to 15 minutes at the highest level of the highest appointed the sky to look move to the floor. So that's what we say, if you take this is the movement when it's moved to the lower right, you subtract 10 to 15 minutes before that that's the highest in the sky, the sun, the highest position in the sky. So in general, we say to be safe 15 minutes.
So let's say for instance, our cohort, no where we live is at 115. We're at one o'clock, I will not stop praying.
I'm not free sooner. No.
Till 115 115 they call the Adana I can start praying again. So 15 minutes before I then have the hope this is when you don't pray anymore. Is that a celebration only for one day? Yes, it is one day, so Aidan fettle, isn't it this one day, but it doesn't mean right. So at first, you know, Pamela here
is gonna be on Thursday. Friday isn't Friday 830 you do something on Friday too. And then you get the weekend too. It doesn't mean that you need to stop. And it technically eight is one day, but it doesn't mean that you need to stop. Can't you stretch it? You have Friday and you have the weekend. You can still do things on the web Friday and you can still do things on the weekend that weekend. Insha Allah Why do we say technically? What Why is it different when we say technically good when we say technically eat is one day, it's haram to fast on that day. haram too fast.
But once that's over, you confess the second day of eight. So technically, it's not eight. But if you want to also do something on that ad, you want to take a trip whenever that is possible. wherever that is possible, you want to take a trip, you want to go to a bakery and buy a cake you want to Subhanallah take your kids to the playground or to whatever to play or go and purchase something for them.
That's that's still okay, you can stretch it out inshallah. So if you don't want to be restricted that everything needs to be done on the first day and that's it. So when we say technically I'm sorry, I put that on my laptop. So I've when I say technically, I said I mean by it. That's how long too fast on that day but you can stretch your celebration shalabi on how do you for standing heel to heel and shoulders, the shoulder? The head is there is because they say there is no guidance in the Quran or in the sooner to say that when you only are one person with another praying Gemma that he needs to step back. They said there's lack of guidance, there's lack of sunan that part. So even
though you are that's one second, when the Prophet sallallahu was send them I can quote you the source at this moment when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was praying pm
and I think it was ignore a basketball the loved one who spent the night and was unplanned.
No, not a Buddha, not a Buddha. Just listen to me shall on the afternoon shall. So in advance. We're spending the night and he woke up when the profits on center was paying him. So he went in no advance without seeking permission for the profit but because it was allowed. He went and he stood on next level.
To the left of the prophets, a lot of you said no. So the prophets held him and moved him to the right hand column and he became a. He said he made me stand next to him
right next to him.
So it doesn't stay there that he made me stand slightly behind him.
Right? He didn't say stay slightly behind him. But right next to him, that is evidence I just remember that as as I was answering your question, that is evidence that what and when you're praying Gemma, you stand right next to the Imam if you're just two people, males, if it's a female, the female stands behind you, even if she's your wife, but if two males right next to each other, you say doesn't mean that it's a bit we don't say that it's a bit we say is contrary to the sooner Why do we say that? It's not a bit because we have other mothers who are saying that you stay slightly behind
and they're trying to base it on some evidence me because this has not reached them. Right.
By ignored That's right. So he's stepped right in, it's in our best stood right next to the profits a lot he was sending me said this is where he made me stand. So that's clear evidence for why we don't say that if a person stands right, you know, right behind the prayer that you ma'am, that it's a bit because we have other medallic who are saying you should do this. And they're trying to and other scholars of Islam and they're trying to base it on some evidence. So we don't say it's a bit that we're saying that that's not the signal.
That's the clear Sunnah, the authentic Sunnah? Is that you stand right next to the email. Right? And that is insufficient in shown. So there's this question, I hope that the person who asked that is still there.
So say, let me answer this one. I sometimes listen to Islamic lecture while doing housework it can include cleaning the washroom, is it okay to listen to Islamic lecture using my airpot air pods while cleaning the bathroom? That's fine.
So I took in, I hope that
the one who asked is still there on Instagram. So if you're listening to something, right, and it's just going inside your ear, right inside your ear, and you're basically cleaning the house, including right cleaning the bathroom, it's going inside your urine shell, right? So it's not or it's outside. So it's broadcasting outside and it reaches your ear inside. I mean, I mean, what I mean, it reaches you from outside, right? So you know, your, your computer, let's say for instance, or your device is playing on the outside and the sound extends all the way to the inside the washroom. That's allowed, isn't it? Just like what let's say for instance, you're inside the
bathroom and you hear the other?
Do you have to close your ears? Or there's a holdover from the message the message is so close you can hear it then you're in the washroom Do you have to close your ears?
So the same thing your ear pots are okay. And you're inside your ear? That's fine. Insha Allah right? Or the recorder, let's say right, and it's outside the washroom playing. That's fine. As long as either the sources outside or the ear pods are inside your ears and shell that's fine. So you're good to go. And shall
let me see here there is.
Life insurances Hello, is life insurance does not help.
If you can't opt out of it, you can opt out of it. So if something is compulsory, such as let's say, for instance, you get a job and the job makes it compulsory that you can't opt out of insurance in general, or life insurance, you just simply cannot opt out, then that's it, you can opt out, you can decline it. That's it. Right. So you have to you have to write but if you get the money, that money is not yours, right? You take your portion, if you didn't contribute anything towards it, you take your contribution and the money is not yours, because that's not really yours. But if you can opt out, you can opt out and shall write
Long Term Disability Insurance. I don't really know about it, right? I don't know really know about it. Again, if it's compulsory, it's compulsory. If it's something if it's voluntary, and you say is it allowed that I would that I take Long Term Disability Insurance, I have no clue about what is Long Term Disability Insurance and why a person would need it. Right. So Alo Allen. So I don't know much about this.
So let me see if there are any more questions.
So there's a question here says my friend always greets me and her occasion and occasions like Christmas and Easter and on my occasion like Ramadan, and I feel like it's rude for not reading on four occasions.
Yeah, I mean, I don't know where you where you live.
and if you live in a western country because it matters, because in western countries, they don't have the day you're listening.
If you're living in western countries, so I'm assuming you're living in a western country. It gets awkward. I understand if you're living in a western country, because if you're living in a Muslim country, that's why it's different.
If you're living in a Muslim country,
it's generally known right that we don't celebrate these things. We don't celebrate Christmas, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, we don't celebrate this and this and this. So they're not going to greet you with that. Right? So it's just a burden off your shoulder, you don't have to say something back to them. Like, if you're living in a non Muslim country, it just comes out somebody, Merry Christmas, something something, what have you. So what I advise people to do is just to simply say, which is the most odd?
Kind of innocent of replies, happy holidays. Just Happy Holidays, right? Why Happy Holidays, because it is a season of holidays.
And you just wishing them that these holidays would be just happy for them. Not necessarily that Christmas, because everybody takes a break.
And if you're in these days, Christmas before it after it every it's a break for everybody, whether you believe in these things or not. So it's a holiday.
So the most innocuous and the most innocent of replies Happy Holidays.
And in saying that, also, you're telling them I mean, I don't really celebrate these things, because I can really say happy, Merry Christmas. If you can communicate to your colleagues that this is not something I celebrate, it's safest. And but if you're stuck and I understand that sometimes you really stuck somebody at the grocery store who's really nice to you and they say Merry Christmas And okay, what are you going to say no. And you don't have the time to stop and explain to them hey, by the way, why don't and so the most innocent of things is just to say Happy Holidays right? So in those circumstances, that's what I recommend in sha Allah
so I've answered this one your question about Christmas and they even Sharla
can I create a twice one at the local salah and another one to lead my female family members at home? Yeah, you can you can inshallah so praying eat twice a good question but a lot of you again, I hope I hope anybody who listened who asked a question is still there because I really want you to hear the
the answer to your questions and shall even if it takes a little bit longer so apologize if it's a bit long anyway. You can pre eat in the masala and you can come back home and free to eat at home. Why can you create it home? Because a it's sooner. your intention is not another eight by the way you saved intention is sooner. You can make it if you wish.
So you're seeing how does this work? You go to the Masada or Masjid you pray a comeback your family hasn't free to eat. They want to pray and Gemma so you lead them. your intention is what? I'm going to be praying.
Or I'll be praying soon now just mclubbe Neff and mukluk just sooner. So say Allahu Akbar that we are saved by adding tech B is a fine tech bill is sooner this via his sooner or later. Hi, Lola Hoda is sooner. So say it for their sake and it's soon in sha Allah it's permissible and show right? So good question and sha Allah botica Hope you're there in Shell
so you're living in a western country in sha Allah so yeah, happy holidays inshallah. So if somebody tells you Merry Christmas Merry this merry that and you get stuck. They're not really close friends close friends you will tell them you that it's awkward
to reply with these greetings because I don't really celebrate these things.
But if you don't feel even comfortable saying that to them, because
whatever reason insha Allah Happy Holidays, so I think I find it easiest, and the most innocent of replies and it does not involve admitting that it is Christmas or I'm greeting you because of Christmas or know your intention when you're saying it. This is a season of holidays. And you know, Happy Holiday happy break Allah. Someone asked me is the Prophet parents will enter Jannah with him since they both died before the Prophet. What should I tell them?
And then if it is only females in the home, how about the eight prayers they pray they can pray in JAMA?
Only females, they can pray in JAMA. Right. And they the way that they line up is that the email will be a female line up in their missed one line.
If they need to, they can be forced to
lines, they can form two lines, but with the first line with that he man who is the female and other female members on both sides. And there's a need to for even more, any females to line up, there's no space in the first line it for my second line. So any prayer that the female will lead, she will leave other females and she'll be in their midst not ahead of them but in their midst. And she leads us on
somebody asked me about the parents of the prophets a lot to send them it's in the authentic hadith.
Yes, yes, six she can lead women can lead other females.
A woman can lead us on that she can lead the side out of obligations you can lead other females she can lead them in a sooner other females right. Now.
Final question, I think Hello, Adam. Yeah, Eden Sharla. She can lead because it's a sooner it's a prayer that is a sooner and if she has other females in our household and she wants to do it in JAMA, they pray together, she leads and they they align up to her side, one to the one here and one here to here to here six years succeed right
now, so about the parents of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it's it's there in the site, there in the Hadith
that the prophet SAW maybe send them said that in the Abbey, what about caffeine now? Because somebody came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said Where is my father, he said, Your father is in hellfire. He went, he went back out. He called him and he said, your father and my father are in hellfire. So that's one heavy, and the prophet and another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
He was crying. And he, he was said that I asked Allah for permission, that I would stop to ask forgiveness from my mother because it was passing by your skirt by her grave, and he did not grant me that permission. So that's in this hadith as well. So yes, they did died before the prophets a lot he was sent them but some people who died before the Prophet died in federal, federal meaning that they were not exposed to guidance. And some who died before the prophets Allah who said them if we are told in a hadith that no they are in hell, it means that they will expand expose to enough guidance, but law is origin from the
message of Ibrahim and it's many that they were held responsible for it by Allah soldier. So this is not an opinion or something that we decide on our own, with our intellect, or emotions, right? It's up to Allah zoji. So leave this matter to Allah as it as far as we know from the Hadith. He said that no, Allah did not grant him the permission to ask forgiveness for his mother.
Right? So that is up to Allah zodion we just stop where Allah has asked us to stop where the profits of Bollywood cinema start as well. So we would just say that and we'll leave the restaurant license. So insha Allah In conclusion, and shall I think we've answered everything I hope.
