sir Quran don't come to Salah in the state of intoxication because you don't understand what the mama say.

00:00:22--> 00:00:29

Okay in this context, I'm an I'm a non Arab, I don't understand Arabic laters my Salah stands

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

Allah.

00:00:32--> 00:00:38

Okay, any more questions in the same context during during our surrenders Zahra says

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

the man doesn't

00:00:42--> 00:00:46

the fates slowly we don't understand we don't hear your citation.

00:00:48--> 00:01:45

So what do you have to say for this? Okay, thank you. I will answer inshallah, about a verse in the Quran where Allah azza wa jal says, Yeah, you're Latina Amanullah taramasalata antem sakara Hakata, Allah Mamata kulu. All you who believe do not approach prayer while in the state of intoxication, until you know until you understand what you're saying. So it hasn't, it doesn't have anything to do with the Imam recite reciting. Even if the Imam was reciting Arabic and you're an Arab, but you're in the state of intoxication, you should not pray. And why is that? Because the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam even told us that if one of you is praying night prayer, and he is a bit drowsy,

00:01:45--> 00:02:22

feeling sleepy, he should retire and sleep? Because in this situation, you may ask Allah for forgiveness, and instead of saying, Oh Allah, forgive me, you say, oh, Allah curse me. Because you're not focusing. So the Prophet tells you, no, you have to stop. You have to go and retire and sleep. Likewise, if a person is praying, while in the state of intoxication, he's drunk. Instead of asking for forgiveness, he may curse himself. And one of the people who used to drink he quit drinking.

00:02:24--> 00:03:11

After once being wasted, then urinating in a bowl, and then performing widow washing his face with his urine and saying Allah, make me among those who are purify themselves and make me among those who repent along the journey me tobiano journey Minamata hearing, this is what you say after making wood. And afterwards when he was sober. And so what he had done to himself, he took a vow not to drink again, you don't have to reach that level, you just simply have to submit your will and know that it is hard for you to drink or to be even close to drinking. This verse deals with you not knowing what you're saying. Not because you don't understand the language. Rather because you do not

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

you are not in a state of mental

00:03:16--> 00:03:27

health or mental case. So that allows you to do something that is permissible. Rather, you are in a state of

00:03:28--> 00:04:02

temporary insanity, temporary insanity. When you're intoxicated, you do things and then you regret it you do things and you don't remember it you do things that you would never have thought of even doing when you were not drunk. So this is what the is referring to. As for us or on lower is the same thing. It is no there is no relation, none whatsoever to what the Imam is reciting because you are reciting the Fatiha on your own reciting the surah on your own and making dua on your own and Allah knows best
