There is an etiquette for that.
The second part of
the Shahada will actually handle Mohammedan. Law, pseudo law. What is the definition of Rasool? And what is the difference between rhassoul and nebby?
nebby is a prophet Russell is a messenger. What is the difference? There are a lot of
definitions and statements, the most authentic is that messenger is someone sent to people with a specific revelation and law for them.
While a prophet is someone who is sent to his people, but without a new revelation, or a law, he follows the revelation and the law of those before him, but he does not have a specific law of his own. Such as prophet SAW a man before him was his father that would, and they are from the very Israel in see they all followed what the books of moose peace be upon him, and so on.
So to testify that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is
a messenger of Allah or the Messenger of Allah, why not the Prophet of Allah, because every messenger
is a prophet. By default, every messenger is, but not the other way around. Not every prophet is a messenger. And this is why the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he first became a prophet or a messenger.
What was first
he was a prophet, when Allah told him a para mishmi, Arabic Allah, Allah. This is a prophecy he was given revelation, but he was not ordered to convey he was not ordered to order the people to come, once he was ordered to do that. And the scholars say, the order or the message came to him through which surah
Yes, I sent them very good. Alamo desert area, Yokohama desert.
palace, this is an instruction on for and they go and warn your people. So what
does believing in the Prophet is designed to be a messenger of Allah include. It includes that you obey Him in whatever he orders you, and that you refrain from whatever he denies you and prohibits upon you, and that you believe him in everything that he tells you about and that you do not worship Allah except through his commands for things.
If there was a quiz, I would include this definitely. What does the belief in the message of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam include four things, OBEY Him in what he ordered?
refrain from what he had prohibited.
believe him in whatever he had told us about because he tells us about Jenna not there is no order and there is no prohibition. So this is belief. And number four, to worship Allah only through his command. You do not worship Allah with something enervated something from your own whims and desires, only through the way of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam.
Therefore, to believe in the message of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam is to believe that any religion other than his nowadays is not accepted.
So someone says, I believe in Mohammed to be a great messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I believe in the Quran to be revelation, but I am still a Christian.
But I don't believe in Jesus to be the Son of God. He's a messenger and a great messenger and I love him. And I remain on my religion, yet I believe in your religion as well. This is a Catholic.
He will not be accepted or admitted to Jenna.
The Prophet says are in Salatu, Salam by the one who's my soul is in here.
His hands, no Drew, and no Christian would hear about me and does not believe in me, except Allah would admit him to hellfire.
There is no compromise, first of all, but we will come to the issue of them being admitted to hellfire. That does not give us the justification to say that this Christian or this Jew is in hell. This is a general description when we come to specific individuals. Like is john doe,
a Christian? Is he in hell?
I don't know. Whoever dies as a Christian will go to hell. Okay, what about john? I cannot say this is anomalous knowledge. Maybe he accepted Islam before he died. Maybe Allah gave him an excuse, or he has a legitimate reason. But the general description all Muslims will be in Paradise is awesome in paradise.
You can tell if I die, you cannot say he's in paradise. Because this is in melleray. specifics we cannot say in general or enough. Unless we have
without even thinking, or Omar Osman Ali without even thinking those when we are told in gender specifically, we say in general about your health
and health, for our inhale. We have no doubt in that, but this is something else insha Allah okay.
To offer the No no, I did this, I'm just warming up.
This is Shahada.
We still have a long way to go. Now.
Our religion, Islam
is based on two very important principles taken from the Shahada, the Allah Allah Allah, Hamad Rasul Allah. What are these two principles, one sincerity true following the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what does that mean? It means that Allah does not accept any of your deeds, unless these two conditions are fulfilled, and effortless sincerity, Laila heilala, and Al edema or an metabo. In Arabic, we call it the following ship of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, without following
alone would not accept your deeds. I have sincerity, I have a class and I come to pray Maghrib for Raka
fetcher is to vote for us or is for Asia is for all even numbers why Maghreb?
So add one.
What will that be invalid? Because I'm not following the footsteps of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, I innovate in the religion. Allah will not accept this because I'm not following the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, these two conditions are mentioned in so many places in the Quran. And it is clearly mentioned in the sooner and if you want to know if Allah would accept you as a Muslim or not always look into your deeds.
Are they in accordance to the Sunnah? Do I have sincerity? Why do I pray in a very nice way because my boss is watching. I want an increment. I want a bonus. I want him to appoint me as a supervisor of my division. That's I know that that's why I'm doing more work. I don't have hunchback but I just do this show that he's impressed.
The deed is unaccepted I have sincerity. But I'm not following the footsteps of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, I am innovating. When I pray Asad. sincerity of law, kebab.
What is this? Everybody's normal? No, I'm premium. I'm a high level of Deen. And this means that I'm trying to reach Allah quickly.
This is innovation and what are you doing? You said you not know what's in my heart. I said yes. But I know what I see. Man. This every embryo in America
I mean hope for whoever, whoever innovates in our religion was not part of it, it is rejected. So this is rejected by Allah azza wa jal in it won't do you any good. And
it is important and essential for the Shahada to be verbal. It is not sufficient for a person to say, Hello, Simon Muslim, I said it in my heart. Maybe maybe this would help him with Allah. But to us as Muslims, he is considered to be what a disbeliever when he dies, he dies at this believer, there are some Muslims who accept Islam, but do not go to the Islamic Center do not go to the masjid, to announce it, nobody knows that they're Muslim. So we cannot consider them to be Muslim until they announce it. But at the sight of Allah, this is something between them and Allah and Allah knows best. So this is number one, number two.
Okay, now, all what he had said, In Arabic is called, were a far more solid.
I'm a solid, to establish and not to pray. So part of the pillars of Islam is that you establish prayer, which means that it is not sufficient to pray. Rather, you have to follow
doing it on time, you have to
do its conditions. And you have to pray it in the same format that the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam had prayed it in solid linguistically. What does it mean?
centum da, which is supplication.
Technically, what does it mean?
What does solid technically mean, solid? Technically, it is specific rhetorics and actions that are inaugurated, they begin with a tech beer. And they're concluded with a ceram and performed in a special way. At special times. This is solid. This is technical definition of it. When was it mandated?
The five daily prayers when was it mandated
in the Islamic world marriage after hegira?
Yes, the brothers are saying yes. Before hijra, before his urine, the miraculous Night Journey. Some say it was a gift from Allah azza wa jal in compensation and in condolences for the death of his beloved wife, Khadija, and also his beloved uncle who died as a non Muslim.
So this is what some scholars say.
Bye. It is mandatory upon every adult who has no obstacles preventing him from praying, what are the obstacles that can prevent you from praying
No, no, I'll pass huh?
junoon insanity, okay, so he's an adult, but he's insane. So, this prevents him or prevents Salah to be obligatory upon him, children. They are not adult obstacles that come such as menses for women. They are prohibited they prevented from praying because of this.
continue cannot Allah meanie in a key tab and makuta prayer is prescribed upon the believers on specific timings.
It's very essential for us to know this. Why?
Because a lot of the brothers and sisters, especially here, when they
are cornered and don't have time to pray their cell prayer cousin,
and some have the concept of Casa rumery.
You know what that concept is in the subcontinent in India and Pakistan. They pray with every vote for another vote. What is this is this is for a lifetime, maybe in the past, I was a cat, I did not pray. So now. I make Casa ohmori. They continue to pray with every Salah, the same salad. This is innovation, this is not in Islam.
As for the timings, it is not permissible for you to wait until the time is over.
Unless there is a legitimate reason such as
sleeping, or for getting forgetfulness. The Prophet said that is salatu salam, whoever over sleeps or forgets a prayer must pray it. As soon as he remembers it. There is no cafaro to it. Other than that, now cafaro issue is usually done when you do what?
One Don't waste my time. Please be quick. When I ask you a question respond so that we can utilize the time cafaro is not done. Or it's not given except when what is done
You don't have to be a rocket scientist.
But sleeping, is it sinful?
forgetting is it sinful. Learn to act isn't a nesina if we forget or error, make an error. So why do I need an expiation? scholars say that this is an emphasis from the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam that if you sleep or forget the kafala for these not to sense is to pray it immediately. Which means that if you abandon salad for other than these two reasons, there is no kafala and it will not be accepted from you even if you prayed about. Let me repeat. I'm in the car. I'm driving the chef to the hotel. It's time for salad. We don't stop. Russia is approaching I did not pray Muslim. We don't stop until we reach the hotel and the issue again is given. Is there a legitimate reason? No Can I
pray? Margaret Kava. No. And if you pray, it will not be accepted from you. Because you deliberately skipped it.
I was in the car park and pray there is no such. Sir What? sorrow sorrow.
There is no sorrow, there is no Salah there is no Masjid. He Allah made the ground for us a place of prayer and purity. Wherever the Salah is do you have to pray in the park on the street in the class in the corridor anywhere?
I'm a sister, I cannot pray in the street. Why? Mashallah. You're wearing Hijab? Oh, people will look at me. So what? You're wearing hijab,
they're looking at you, you're walking. You have to pray. You can not delay the prayer for any reason. Other than life or death or asleep. while you're asleep, you're not accountable. Or you forget, it happens in the best of families. You so how can you forgot, but to just say, Oh, I'm going to miss Marie, manage what are you doing? Well, I am working on a project while I am preparing the flyer for the conference will lie we are doing the kill
and learning for an FC. If the Adhan of Asia is given, you cannot pray Muslim and if you pray it, Allah will not accept it from you. And a majority and a great group of scholars said that you have become a Kaffir for skipping this salad deliberately. Salad is not a game. This is a pillar of Islam. You must not postpone it until the time runs out. Otherwise you are out.
And this is a serious thing. This is why Yeah, it is a little bit important to mention this to you, too, that
on the Day of Judgment.
I will not laugh at you
You will not laugh at me because I did my job and hamdulillah I gave you pipe, there are conditions for solid correct?
What is the definition of condition? You are students of knowledge you should know that
what is meant by condition?
No no condition in Islamic Sciences is something that is required for an action to be accepted that comes before the action
and being there does not require the action to be done or not. But being absent means that action is void.
So, let me explain this in layman's term, my term
Who am I to say I'm alone in LA v.
Condition of hedge is that I am a Muslim. This is a precondition.
If a Christian comes and says, Well, I am going for Hajj with you inshallah, I will go to other farmers daily farming the whole nine yards. He does everything like we do, is it accepted from him? Why? Because the condition was not there.
Now, having the condition done and available, does not mean that the action will be done.
One of the conditions of Hajj is to be a Muslim, I'm a Muslim, does this mean I'm going for Hajj this year, next year, the year after no the condition available does not mean that the action must be happening or taking place. Now salaat requires conditions
that has to be there in order for your salon to be accepted. condition number one.
I need to hear you guys.
I didn't attend
to be a Muslim. Okay. This is the general condition. But we want conditions of solid itself. Go though before that.
Nia, you have to have the intention and Nia is disputed whether it's a condition or pillar part of the solid, but the most authentic opinion it is something that is before solid. So we have conditioned to we have fahara bahara has two meanings
or divided not two minutes it is divided into two types. One is uplifting the header, two purification of the habit.
What does that mean?
bahara means purity. And purity is one part.
sentimental and other part is physical.
So let's begin with the physical part.
In order as a condition for my prayer to be accepted and valid, I have to have purity physically. In one my body to my clothes, three
place I'm praying in.
This is physical, I have urine. I can see it, wash it, it's gone.
I can pray my clothes. Same thing. The squat this is what this is called
is a tool habits removing the filth removing the impurity This is half of bahara. The second half is sentimental is something that I cannot see.
Who can tell if I'm invisible or not.
Anyone can tell that if I'm invisible or not. No lights.
Nothing you cannot tell. I am an oboe. By the way,
if I break my wooden
who can tell
this is something that is not physical we cannot tell that this and this is known as alhadeff l had that
and it has two types major ritual impurity which which results from ejaculation into
cores or menses are postnatal bleeding, this is uplifted with what
goes on, you have to take total bath or we have the minor ritual impurity. And this is uplifted With what? With whoodle I will not go into details because this is not a class of film. But these are
your Islam is not accepted without such knowledge, you need to know these things, because this is part of the ABC. So, we have two conditions now of solid Nia and bahara. What else?
Google it you have multiple phones. She has Google
Time, Time meaning that the time is due What time is over?
One o'clock, if I come 1258 and I would like to pray. My prayer is
as long as prayer as that is given at one sharp, I cannot pray it seconds earlier, it has to be a beginning and it ends at a certain event. This is the time for the horror and each salaat has its own specific time you must break in it unless exception if you're combining in the case of a traveler or someone in need. Number four
direction give me a better word. Kamala Kamala ha facing the Qibla. So if someone knows the Qibla is there and he prays this way, his prayer is invalid. Always know.
It can be valid.
facing the Qibla for a person praying for ego and he's capable of doing it is a must. If I'm traveling and I'm praying voluntary sooner, I can pray anywhere. So the Kabbalah is there and I'm headed to
I'm heading this way the tribulation my back, I pray sooner the harasser night prayer, whatever I want, forever, I have to face the table and come down from my car and park.
I went to a friend's house.
And it was time for prayer. My friend was not there. So I didn't know where the cable was. So I did this.
And I prayed. When my friend came he said wrong. The cable is this way. Should I repeat my prayer was okay.
I have to repeat because I did not exert all the effort that I can in knowing where it is. And therefore my prayer is invalid. But if someone did his level best, he tried he called or a friend told me it's this way. So I prayed because a Muslim told me it's this way after I finished it, I made the mistake it's this week, tough luck, My prayer is valid. The sin is on him. I will not repeat not to you and
I do not repeat because I did my best I got the testimony of a Muslim This is sufficient by Is there any last conditional ah Let's go.
Our to expose your our is one of the conditions of solid through
is to cover
to cover your hour is one of the conditions of the solid and the hour of male is from the knee till the
belly button. And for the women. All of the women is our except her face and her hands in solid. So if a sister wants to pray in home, wearing her leggings and T shirt, but covering her hair good. No, she has to wear the full abaya. She has to cover herself even if home says call me chef, I'm alone and it's dark and the lights are off. Can I pray like this?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a law who does not accept the prayer of a woman who reached the age of puberty without the female. She has to cover her whole body this is acceptable. So moving on.
Should we move on with
this rate we want to finish five page letter. This is only the first Hadeeth because when I started my research, I spent so much effort and time and the rest is all one word, two words and we'll finish off the day. Don't worry any intubation. By the way, salaat is the second pillar of Islam.
It is unlike any other form of worship at all, in the sense that it was given to our Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam in the seventh heaven, and all Islam was given on Earth. It was given directly by Allah, and all the rest, through jabrill peace be upon him. It is the only deed in Islam, that whoever abandons it leaves the fold of Islam.
And this is why the Prophet said Allah is Salatu was Salam.
between man and this belief or sherek, abandoning solid, what
separates us from the disbelievers is a solid, whoever abandons it, he has left the fold of Islam, and therefore it is extremely important to observe it, not just to pray it. But as the Hadith stated, once upon a solid, to establish it. Our problem is that we all pray, but do not have the Spirit of prayer.
When we pray, we pray with empty hearts. We just do aerobics.
But without the contemplation, you try to look at how we pray in front of people in the surrounding
you should teach me how to speak the language and I should come here for a month and take a course at least.
And compare our Salat in the message to our salad in our room when no one is watching. What's the difference?
A big difference in the message, we tend to pray in a different slow, nice way but in my room, I pray like a Ferrari
from zero to 105 seconds what what am I doing? Because I don't have that spirit of solid. And this means that our Islam is not of conviction. It is of imitation. We've seen our parents pray we pray but we do not perfect our prayer When was the last time I entered at my parents room, saw them praying and crying. Never they only cry when someone dies or something makes them cry but for from the fear of Allah we do not have this and this is very serious stuff.
We will try to what is the break
No, this is not good
Zakat is the third pillar of Islam it is extremely important again, this is not a perfect
course. But it is important to know that the cat is a certain percentage given on certain types of wealth to specific
categories mentioned in Surah October chapter nine verse 60. at specific times,
the percentages can range from 2.55% 10% or even 20%. These are all percentages of Zakat and there are different categories we will not go into that and we will try to skip it question if
A person does not pays the cat
deliberately, is he considered to be captured?
Yes, and the evidence
aboubaker. May Allah be pleased with him fought with the apostates and mortared Dune, who refuse to give the cat after the death of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam. I wish he did not say this.
But are you making me tired?
This is a big issue of dispute among scholars, whether Abu Bakar when he fought with the apostates for not giving this a cat, he fought them because they were Kaffir
or because they prevented giving by force what they're supposed to give to the Muslim ruler. And this is known as an emptiness.
refraining from doing something that is mandating.
As for the issue of someone who does not deliberately give Zakat Is he a catheter or not? The most authentic opinion is that he's not a coffee. He's committing a major sin big time. So I stated this 10 minutes earlier, but half of you were asleep I could tell. I said it's the only deed that leaving it would consider to be Cofer in Islam and that is a solid. So one says okay, but in the Quran in Surah Al Baqarah Allah says in two places for interval will occur Masada salata Zakat for Hallo Sabina home for a one oh config D. So Allah azza wa jal combine them both together. He said yes from this ayah you correct? Who ever abandoned Salat? Or the cat he is not our brother indeed, as in the
ayah clearly, but we as students of knowledge, do not look at one specific evidence and neglect the other rather we have to do our research and in our research, we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on the Day of Judgment, no one who hoards What does hoard mean?
Hmm. To keep not only to keep too high, then pile anyone who hoards gold or silver and does not give its due meanings, the cat, what will happen on the Day of Judgment, Allah azza wa jal will make plates of this golden silver, and to be burned with fire, and then his forehead, his side, his back would be burnt with these plates, until he cools down, then it will be repeated until the day of judgment. And then and this is the punch line. And then Allah azza wa jal would either forgive him or throw him in hell. If he was a Kaffir.
there would not be any forgiveness he would be in hell for eternity. So this is one of the evidences that scholars said, makes an exemption for Zakat, not paying it deliberately, from being an act of Kufa. As for Abu Bakar, may Allah be pleased with him the most authentic opinion that he fought them because they did not do their due diligence they did not give what is due to the a meal.
And they have fought against it with force. Even taymiyah says, The scholars of Islam say if the Muslim ruler came to a village, and this village are Muslims, but they refuse to give the advice and they pray. He must fight them even if he has to kill them until they establish this Sharia of Islam. So killing them and fighting them is not because they're cafard but rather because they are fighting against establishing one of the rules of Islam though they believe in it. You got the point Sharla
To play, it performs hedge. This is known for us as Muslims. You don't have to say Makkah because where are you going to go?
Definitely it is for a mecca. So
this is one of the pillars of Islam. performing hajj to Mecca, the evidence in the Quran will will make the minister Ba La sebelah. Allah azza wa jal
ordained Hajj upon us and in the in the Hadith The Prophet said, in alohacare de la comunidad, Allah ordained that you perform hajj, one of the companions stood up and said, every year and this is very dangerous. Do not ask if there is no need to ask. Now the Prophet says Allah ordained Hajj has leave it once is enough. If you say every year and the Prophet says yes.
All of the oma will be in his neck. So the Prophet says la salatu salam to him. If I said yes, it would have been made mandatory every single year. Leave me as long as I leave you, I don't address this point. Do not come into it. So the Prophet said, I'll had Joe once in a lifetime. And whoever adds this is volunteering. And there are conditions for Hajj, but we will not mention this due to the approaching time of the break.
Okay, again, this is an explanation from the translator. Carla's fasting. Everyone knows but this is sometimes essential for people who are not knowledgeable is fasting. Okay, Monday, Thursday, three days every month, arafat Ashura should no No, no, what we are talking here is, is what Pillars of Islam which is Ramadan, alone, 30 days, and fasting in Arabic means linguistically to refrain to stop. So I'm fasting from talking. This is fasting, but Ling technically, it is to refrain from whatever breaks you are fast from the break of dawn, until sunset with this is very important condition with the intention of pleasing Allah. Because you can be on a diet. I'm fat, I'd like to
lose weight. So I'm fasting from eating and drinking and all things that break my fasting from break of dawn till sunset, but is it for the sake of Allah? No, I'm just wanting to lose weight, then this is not fasting. It has to have this intention.
I think that the rest is, you all know it, Mashallah.
Why didn't the Prophet alayhi salatu salam mentions Jihad?
is in jihad,
something important in Islam.
The Prophet Allah is also said that world war two center will Islam and Jihad SNM is the hump on the back of a camel and the highest of it. The Prophet says if Islam was the camel, the highest point of this hump is jihad.
So why isn't it mentioned here? scholars say it is not mentioned because it is not mandatory upon every individual. It is mandate mandated upon those certain people who are either attacked or those who are off doing offensive Jihad according to the order of the
ruler, the Muslim ruler ruler. Secondly, these will continue until the day of judgment, while Jihad will stop and seize when it
comes with the grace of Allah azza wa jal at the end of time, there will be no Jihad and Allah azza wa jal knows best
