hamdulillah salat wa salam o barakaatuh Huberty. He was fully he almost offer Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And welcome to lessons. In fact, as you know, we're still studying the conditions of salaat. And we have mentioned a few of them before. So just as a reminder, a brother Fadi Can you give me one of the conditions of solid purity, purity, and we mean by purity, both sides of it, which means that we have to
clean ourselves and remove the filter the impurities, and we have to perform a dilution or total bath to remove the sexual impurity or to remove the hidef if one has this state of impurity on him, do you have anything else brother Mustafa facing the facing the Qibla and we talked about thoroughly few programs ago, do you have a third one?
covering the euro and the Euro are the the area in your body that must not be seen by others? Well Malik Do you have another condition of salaat.
within it deals with the times
the sun, so which is times of prayer time of prayer, so one of the conditions for a prayer that the time is due, if you pray before it's due, then your prayer is not acceptable. We move on to Hadith 168.
Hadith narrated by a bin Omar may Allah be pleased with him, narrated by abnormal may Allah be pleased with them. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for bed forbade prayer at seven places, a dump a slaughterhouse a graveyard, the middle of the path, a bathroom, and we cannot sit at a watering place and the top meaning roof of the cabin.
This Hadith is not authentic. So it is weak. And that does not that does not necessarily mean that everything mentioned in it is wrong. But it means that it's not something that we should rely on. Whenever we say that it is not permissible to pray in this area. Now, if we take it from the very beginning, it says seven places a dump, what's a dump
It's a place where they throw, you know, trash and junk and waste. So it's like a junkyard where you put all the trash in.
And, again, there is no strong evidence supporting this. So if a person is living close to or was stranded in a dump, and he had to pray, he must pray.
Providing that he is sure. Or at least he is certain that there isn't any indigestion. And you cannot be certain that there is a dent in agenda. But what is most likely that there isn't any an adjuster so you pray regardless, you don't have to do any tests or go to any labs to ensure that the place you're praying in is not nudges. Because the rule of thumb is that everything in this world is
pure is pure is far ahead. So
to prove otherwise, you have to have evidence. So if I'm going to pray, and this is something that lots of people do whenever I go and visit people in their house,
I usually ask for permission to pray. If I if I skipped certain if I skipped Salah because of one reason or the other. And, to my surprise, people come to me and bring me a prayer mat, you know, the prayer mat, and they say you can pray on this. So I asked them, Why this, why not pray on the floor, the carpet, the marble, whatever. They say, Well, this is pure This is barrhead. We know it's star here, we don't know about the rest. So is what they're doing right? or wrong.
Most of what they're doing is right or wrong. When they give me their prayer mats. Well, if it's there, for the intention of, of it being pure, and the rest is not pure, then this is incorrect, because as long as there's no filth on the floor them. So it should, you should be able to pray on it without having using the mat. Okay? This means that there is no need for putting a prayer mat.
If even, and this happens, even if you are in doubt, saying that, I remember that one of my children, urinated somewhere.
But I don't know where. So does this mean that the whole area is forbidden for us to prey on? No. As long as you're not certain, then the whole area is considered to be fire. And you don't have to go out of your way and put a prayer mat to pray. So unfortunately, we find this also in mosques. See it shaytaan. Satan comes through and steps bit by bit. So if he watches you,
allowing him to whisper in your ears, and not to pray in your house, except on a prayer mat. After six or seven months, you will end up taking the prayer mat with you to the masjid. You see this in the message. People putting prayer mats, or people putting their hand handkerchiefs on the prostration position. And when you ask them, why are you doing this? They say that? Well, we're not sure. We're not certain that the carpets in the mosques are clean, or pure. If they're not pure and clean in the marks in the masjids in the mosques with Where else can it be clean? And how can you ensure that the prayer mat you're carrying with you has not been exposed to any filth or impurity?
What do we children did something you did not notice or anything that could have happened. So it bleeds comes to a person and starts with to spur and make life really difficult for him. I had a friend
Excuse me, I had a friend
who was a really good Muslim. And he used to sometimes deliver, you know, speeches and mosques and Masjid. And something happened to him. And the guy started to have these whispers of Satan. And he listened to what he had to whisper. So at the very beginning, he used to pray in the masjid. And after a while he started praying, skipping prayer. So when I visited him home, and I asked him, Why do you skip prayers? He said, Well, I've noticed that whenever I pray in the masjid, people on my left and right are coughing, or sneezing, our hat moving, you know, when you're in prayer and the one next to you starts picking his nose or rubbing his body and some people get what we call
skin diseases that are related only to prayer.
They come only in prayer, they get skin diseases in prayer. When they're out not praying. They're normal. They're they're like us, the minute they say Allahu Akbar, they start to have this itching in their body. And from the very beginning to the end of the salaat. You just find them jumping around, you know, just stretching and rubbing themselves, like monkeys, whether you're the biller, this is an Islamic, the minute they say Salaam wa Taala it comes down. This is shaytan. So he said this this man
that I don't have any submissiveness and Oh, sure. I cannot concentrate in my prayers without with all this movement, and also the air conditioning. Sometimes it's too cold, sometimes too hot. Also, there there is the noise outside of the mosque or people horning and doing this and that. So I found out that whenever I pray in my home, I feel more secure and I I benefit more from my prayer. So I told him but this is
Not the sooner you are making a sin by not praying in the masjid. You said, Well, I don't know, I had to figure it out. And I thought that this is the best thing to do.
Two, three months later, the guy deteriorated. And he became too obsessed. To the extent that he doesn't pray in anywhere in his house, there has to be a special room for his prayer. And he prays in that room.
And I forgot to say, the first thing it started with, when he used to pray in the masjid, he used to pray with his eyes shut
throughout the whole prayer. And when I told him that this is not the sooner This is the doing of the Jews, and it's not allowed in Islam, to shut your eyes throughout the prayer, because neither the prophets of Salaam nor his companions did it. He said, Well, this is the way that I can get Oh, sure. This is the way that I can concentrate more than my prayer. And then he moved to praying in his house. And then he became obsessed not to pray except in a particular room with no air conditioning, and
it was at the very end of the house. And six or seven months later, he began to pray only when he turns the light off.
So he has to pray in complete darkness. And it wasn't long before he completely abandoned Salah Colossi did not pray at all, you're so obsessed, that shaytan over, over
shaitaan overcame him. And he did not pray until he died. And this is a person that I know, I know him personally. He died not praying. This Allah, Allah have you. So one should not be obsessed of cleanliness, or of the absence of noise or of this, or of that, as it is an Islamic. Now you have here, you have to pray in a dump. Nobody goes to a dump to pray. But if it happens, then
as long as you don't see evidence that there is impurity in NASA, you may pray wherever you are. The second place is a slaughter house.
And why is that? slaughterhouse is like any other. What is not permissible for you to prey on is when there is blood of animals being slaughtered? Because the blood coming out from the animals is considered to be ledges. And there's no difference among scholars in this a de minimis for when it when it's pouring from the slaughtered animal, then this means that this area is nudges. And
people hear this and say, You slaughter animals. How barbaric? Well, medicine prove that this is the best and easiest way to kill an animal. They kill animals, some people can animals by hitting them on the head, or electrifying them or doing this or doing that this is all an Islamic and unacceptable by slaughtering the animal, you ensure in less than one or two seconds that the nervous system is cut, and the animal does not feel anything. And this has been proven and even if it's not proven, this is our religion. This is the way that the prophet SAW Selim taught us how to do it. And the Jews slaughter the Christian slaughter, the original Jews and Christians. It's only recently
like 50 or 70 years that the people came to kill animals in a different way not because it's more merciful, but because it keeps the blood in the body of the animal. So the weight instead of being 100 pounds, it becomes 120 pounds which means more money when you kill the animal and sell it. I believe that we have to break now. So please stay tuned in sha Allah. We'll be right back.
to Medina, our beloved Prophet Muhammad wa sallam and his companions faced lots of troubles and difficulties and enmities and obstacles in the way to Medina, before the hedgerow to Medina from Mecca. Also Allah subhanaw taala has assistant His Beloved Prophet and supported him in order to complete his mission and to to emigrate to Medina. Our last panel Tyler has granted us this great Prophet and his country.
pinions Now the question, why is it immigration to Medina, the hedgerow overall, Selim and his companions was a turning point in the history of hedgerow and the history of Islam. My dear brothers and sisters, what are the sacrifices that the prophet SAW Selim has faced with his companions, some of these difficulties inshallah we will learn together and we will focus in some lessons. What are the lessons that we take from these incidents in sha Allah in our program, route to Medina, my dear brothers, stay tuned with us in sha Allah and this great event of hijra, we will inshallah focus on some of the lessons of this program road to Medina, may Allah make it easy for us and accept our
good deeds. and gather us was our beloved Prophet Muhammad, Salah, and Jenna, and
Hello, and welcome back. Just before the break, we talked about the seven things that were mentioned in the Hadith, though is not authentic, but we're just trying to go through them and see what's right and what's wrong. And we talked about that a dump and a slaughterhouse. And we move on to the third thing, which is a graveyard, and it is forbidden for us to pray in graveyards. Some scholars say that this is because when a dead person dies, and his remains
mixed with the soil, this makes the soil impure and merges and this is not authentic, because his remains have been completely transformed into something that does not appear in the soil. So it takes the verdict of soil. But the reason why the prophet SAW Selim told us not to pray in graveyards is that if you pray in graveyards, there is a possibility that someday people will associate dead people with allies origin. And instead of praying for Allah, in a graveyard, your you will pray for the dead people or for the dead person. And this is a parent in lots of the Islamic country countries, unfortunately, where they pray and supplicate to the dead, as we see them, do
that in lots of mosques, and masters throughout the Islamic world. This is of course, is associating others with Allah. And this is called schicke. And inshallah we'll elaborate a little bit more, after one Hadith shall have the following Hadith.
Then it says, the middle of the path, and why do you think it's not recommended to pray in the middle of the path and stuff because people are passing by, and which would cause either you to bother them in their way or them to bother you by passing in front of you in salah and you have the whole world you only chose this place to pray and where they're in the middle of their path. This is not recommendable, but is it haram? Is it forbidden? No, it's not. So again, the idea is not authentic. So we have to know which is right and which is wrong. What follows Mohammed? What's the fifth or sixth thing? bathroom? bathroom? Now is this presentation correct? You remember we talked
about it? A couple of programs ago, we said that the prophet SAW Selim did not have bathrooms. And what is meant by him, ma'am? Is Fadi is the place where people gather together to take
it's like a public pass.
That is public bath with the bave in the Romans used to do it. In some Arab countries like in Tunisia, Morocco, Syria, and so on. They still have this I don't know if they have it in Egypt, but I believe they used to have it like 3040 years ago. I don't know if it exists or not. Usually people go there because they do not have the facility to bathe in their houses. But now everybody has a bathroom and everybody has a heater that heats the water and makes everything
cozy and nice. So it's not recommendable to pray in
public bath, simply because there are so many a lot of
iraq would be exposed. So looking at it being in such a place where probably there is pure impurities scattered everywhere, water and that is not clean. It's not a proper place for a Muslim to pray in.
And the following one was where camel where camels sit at a water in place. Now, is this authentic? Is it allowed for us to pray in the barns or pins of camels? nor?
The minute the place where the cameras sit?
No, no, I think it's not authentic. It's it's not authentic? Is the minute if the place is clean and pure, we can prepare. What do you think, Mustafa? I think there was a previous Hadith where we said that
the Prophet Muhammad SAW them forbade praying
at the margins and pens of camels. So it is authentic. This part, we're not allowed to pray in the pens or barns of camels in ways that Mustafa Do you think this is because this area is impure? Because the cameras
the droppings and the urine, okay. What about praying in the barns or pins of sheep? Same thing, most of us know the barns of sheep which allowed you pray. So provided that there is no impurity but like, Where did you get this providing that there is no impurities just in general, as there any other place where you should pray? And there should? No, there shouldn't be any period? Okay.
from I know that animals that are the meat is, you know, they are their meat is their, their droppings and their urinating is not an Aegis.
And that's exception for the camera. The camera has a different case itself. But the rest of them is hollered.
What do you think of what Mike is saying? That? Well, Malik is saying that
it's a rule that the droppings and urine of animals that we are allowed to eat their meat, such as birds,
camels, cows, sheep,
and so on any animal or bird that we are allowed to eat their meat? He's saying that their droppings, their
urine, their dung is considered to be pure. Do you approve this?
No, no. Paddy? Yeah, I think so. I think he's right. Yeah, he thinks he's right. Well, he is right.
The droppings of animals that we are allowed to eat their meat, animals and birds, is considered to be pure. And there are so many Hadith that back this up, for example, Hadith, an Iranian where the prophet SAW Selim,
the these people that came to Medina and fell sick. So the Prophet instructed themselves and him to go outside of Medina, where the camels are of the Sahaba of the charity.
And he instructed them to drink from their urine and their milk. Now, this seems gross drinking urine of camels, this is too much Well, it is a cure to a lot of diseases. And this is medically proven, but I don't advise you to do it to any disease. See, medicine tells you what form of diseases they can cure. So they may be able to cure skin diseases, they may be able to cure some diseases with deals with fever or with stomach pain. But that doesn't mean they can cure diseases that deal with headaches or with bone
disease related diseases and so on. So, this is a cure and medicine has proven this. But even if medicine did not prove it, as I said before, we rely only on the Quran. And Sunnah as long as authentic. We don't care if medicine provider approves it or not, but it is it has been proven medically. So it is for her to pray wherever you are in the minds of sheep or of camels, but in the case of camels
You are not allowed to pray not because the ground is not pure or
because of something else. That is why the prophet SAW Selim, when asked, Can we pray in the minds of sheep? He said, Yes. And immediately was asked afterwards, can we pray in the barns of camels? He said, No.
So we have to follow it as it is. And it has no justification that we know at the present time, so we apply it as it is.
And finally, it says, It's forbidden to pray on top of the cab on the roof of the cab. And again, this is not
authentic. Now, one would say who would go to the top or on the roof of the cab, who will go there? When regardless if somebody reached that place and went on top of the Kava, either to do some maintenance or for whatever reason?
That is it possible for him to pray or not? Some scholars say no, it's not possible. And the reason because he would not be facing the Kava, but where we'll be facing. And the same thing happens if a person prays inside the camera. So the Prophet did this. It's as soon as you can
get away and get into the Kaaba, this can easily happen when they wash the Kaaba, and they do this twice a year, I think. And if you know someone, you could be lucky and get the chance to enter that kabah does it have any significance? Is it you know, 1000 times more or better than any other prayer? Oh, no, it's not the Prophet dataarray salatu salam, some of the components in it. So it's part of the center. And this is part of the center that we should all try to follow. And why is that?
A man might have been humbled, once
performed copying, he got a person to extract blood from the back of his neck or shoulders. This is called hijama. And he gave him one dinar, which is a lot of money. So those present said, Remember, this is a lot of money. Why did you give this man so much? He said, because I have reported the Hadith, where the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, it was said that he performed a cupping, and he gave the man who did the cupping a dinar so I wanted to follow the Sunnah. To that extent, they follow the Sunnah. So if a person prays inside the Kaaba, then again, we will be he be facing, which direction he is inside the cabin, so it's understandable. And likewise, Islam is good for every time
and place. If you are on a spaceship, and you definitely are not facing the Kaaba, you may pray wherever you are. So if you are on top of a cabin, if you are on the roof of the gamba, you may pray, if you wish, and no one can say that, well, you have to come down and pray because you are in the cabin. So wherever you face, you're facing the right direction, because as if you were inside the Kaaba, wherever you face, you're facing the right direction. So to put it in a nutshell, all what you would have mentioned, the Hadith is weak. Yet there are things that are authentic. And there are things that are not and we have to try and enforce things that are not authentic by
authentic IDs. Otherwise, it's not accepted and it is rejected. We have other issues, but I think regarding this Hadith, I think this is all what we have in need. And until we meet next time to Manila, wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
