Hello Rodney are salatu salam ala rasulillah, Karim, Allah Allah, he was Sufi. For many standards we submit to Medina. All praise is due to a lot of a lot of Peace and blessings and his last prophet Mohammed from the Madhu la who sell them, and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
In this session, the third session,
Sharma will try to cover
go, though they're both two fairly extensive topics, you know, because of the fact that we had set this over a three day period. We'll try to cover both of these topics in this session. And as I said, it will just be
an introduction, giving you a kind of a foundation to how to understand how these and how to understand.
the first of the two hobbies, as we said that these really
represent the sooner
and that we took the sooner before we took them, because the sooner combined with what we spoke of in the last session in tafsir, this is what makes up shediac divine revelation and its interpretation and application is what we call
the Islamic law, right. So,
first thing to understand concerning hobbies is that
first thing we should understand concerning hobbies
is that the term hobbies itself Arabic term hobbies, it means speech. When you use it as a noun, it means speech.
You know, talking
and when is used as an adjective, it means something new, we describe something as being heavy, it means that it is new.
But in the Islamic context, when we're speaking of Hadith, or we're talking about
the sayings and actions and approvals of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
which were conveyed to us
by His companions,
through generations of students and recorded in text, which we call the books of hobbies, and what we mean when we refer to the term hobbies. Now, such a definition includes
hobbies, which are generally Krakow.
As well as
inauthentic hobbies which are generally called by
two basic categories. Now,
in relationship to the sooner
also the vehicle
in which the cinema was conveyed to us the film that goes a little further
then, we can say the cinema goes into when we talk about Scylla we talk about also things which are problems I found them did our did, which were not necessarily of legal implication, and descriptions of the Prophet Moses and them all this is included in sooner. But when we talk about Hadith really, we're not really referring to descriptions of the problem.
Though these descriptions are conveyed through hobbies, hobbies represents the vehicle by which the sooner was conveyed to us the sooner as well as things which occurred during the time of the problem with SLM which weren't even not conveyed by him also visit this he called us are
things which the companions did amongst themselves, or
circumstances which occurred in the time of the problem of SLM which are not related directly to a statement or practice of department, but conveyed to us by the companions. These are called artha.
Right and this is handed down in the same way in which had been handed down. Okay. Now,
concerning the sun now,
the guy said when we talk about Paddy to really talk about the sun now
we have to understand that
The problem was SLM
was first and foremost, an example
what a Muslim was supposed to be. If Omar had wished he could have revealed the Quran, without
a messenger, a book of Revelation coming, no messenger.
But he chose each time that he sent books of revelation that he sent a messenger along with those books, to show the people how to apply those books.
a living example, this is why we have in Surah, verse 21, where a law says, law called Canada confused as to the law he was within half an hour. Rarely there is in a large messenger, a good example for you, and for whoever wishes for a lot in the last day and remember is the law often
the choir also commands
to obey the Prophet Muhammad Salah, for example, in Surah, Al Hachette verse 73, law says matakohe sold for Hulu or nah man.
Whatever the Prophet commands you do it, and whatever he prohibits you leave it.
And there are many, many verses of that nature were alive telling us to obey the Prophet.
Now, how do we obey the Prophet? Today he is not amongst us. We are made through the commands which came to us through the heavy cylinder which has been conveyed to us by the hubby's. We also know that
Allah has stated that when we have to resolve any issues which arise amongst us, because Islam
is a system not only for an individual, but for our community, because the believers ultimately are supposed to be a community.
For us to be able to establish Islam in the fullest sense, we need to do so on a community level. You know, it's very difficult to do it on an individual level. I mean, of course, it doesn't mean that you cannot be a Muslim, you cannot be a practicing Muslim. You cannot be a practicing Muslim. Unless, you know, you are in a complete community, no.
One can practice Islam. to a large degree as an individual, however, the complete practice
will depend on the establishment of Islam as a on a community level.
There's certain things that you need to do, you know, if, if a Muslim dies,
you have lots of janazah the washing of the body, these are things which you die, you can't do it for yourself. So for that to be fulfilled, you need other Muslims.
Right? So that's Gemma, we have a congregational prayer, number of them eat etc, etc. This, you know, you cannot perform it by yourself.
So it means that if you're on on your own, then, you know, there are certain aspects of Islam really you cannot apply.
That doesn't mean that that takes you out of Islam. No, you do according to what you're able. However, Islam was ultimately geared to a community, nation type level, because ultimately, man is a social being.
He always functions with other people.
He cannot exist by himself.
He needs to be with other people his needs to live, he has to depend on other people to to make shoes that he read, you know, to make a car that he drives to build a house he lives in, produce the food in one way or another that he eats. He depends on other people. So the laws of Islam have come to suit the norm of human existence and that is as a community.
So, when people live as a community, there will be differences of opinion, problems will arise. And these problems have to be resolved. And what the law has said is that these problems must be resolved by going back to the Quran and Sunnah. Sunnah is your basis for resolving issues. So we find in Surah, Nisa, verse 65, Allah says, No by your Lord, they do not truly believe until they make you Mohammed says I love the judge between them in their disputes, without finding within themselves uneasiness, but instead, accepting it in total submission. So
Not only are we enjoying to follow what the problems are, Solomon said,
in terms of resolving our disputes, but that we must also accept what he has commanded, in a way, which is a complete acceptance. Well, we don't have like we do it we say all somebody brings it to you says, you know, Baba Sallam said you shouldn't do this, and you were doing it. He said, Okay, I'll stop doing it. But it's like you've been pressured into stop doing it. You're not stopping it, where you just old pop star fellow said not to do it, you know, I'm giving it up. Totally, totally right from your heart. You know, you're giving it up right from your heart. That's the way it has to be. That's the basis of belief. You know, when you do it grudgingly, you know, because the brothers
are looking at you. And you know, you still want to do this thing. But, you know, they said the prompts also said, don't do it. So you don't do it. You know, you're submitting, but you're grudging, it's not really from your heart. It is not true belief.
further added to that we have in souillac, dub, verse 36. A lot says, it is not fitting for a believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decreed by Allah and His Messenger, to have any choice in their affairs. If anyone disobey the law and His Messenger, he is indeed clear, he is indeed clearly a string.
So when we receive information that this was the decision of align his message,
we don't have we don't feel within ourselves that we have a choice, follow it or not follow? Once we have found out that this is the way what's the proper thumbs commanded, then we accept this wholeheartedly. We keep on this is a sign of true belief.
You know, if we do grudgingly I'm not saying that.
You don't, this just means you don't have any belief at all. But it just means your belief is still in that minor stage it has not grown properly.
A proper belief is one which accepts the commandments of the government of a law wholeheartedly.
And the reason why Allah has put so much stress on obedience to the prophet
and because of the fact that
what he commanded
was based on revelation.
What he commanded was based on Revelation, this is why our declaration of faith in the Lord Mohammed over Sula, Mohammed go to school of law, this aspect of accepting Mohammed also known as the Messenger of Allah, this is linked to our belief in Allah.
Because what he conveyed to us, was also revelation.
And a lot of states from the crime
into our magic verse for
lion support and in our in who are in Washington, you have, he does not speak from his desire. Verily, it is divinely revealed revelation
is the basis. This is why we are so committed to following the way of the Prophet
because what he gave us what he conveyed to us was revelation. So in other words, in what as revelation came into form, we have revelation which was direct word of Allah, Revelation, direct quote, of the words of Allah, the Quran.
And then the other indirect revelation, where the problems are seldom either paraphrased word of law, put into the words in his own words.
Or he conveyed to us
things which are based on divine inspiration.
But it's all based on ultimately from Allah, Revelation. And this is why we are commanded to obey because obey the problem
is obeying a law or the law said, My UK Rasul Allah.
And that is whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed a law
suit and the salvors at whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed a lot.
And the problem is I send them you know, emphasize this, himself in his own statements. In the Hadees. collected in Buhari, he stated one obeys me obey the law.
And whoever disobeys me, disobeying Allah
obedience to Allah, submission to Allah This is what Islam is. Islam is defined as submission of one's will, to the will of Allah. This submission
means submission to whatever law is commanded in the Koran, or has commanded through the Messenger of Allah.
So submission to what the public has commanded, is submission to Allah.
And if we seek to worship Allah, we can only do so through the way of the Prophet Muhammad Salah.
And this prophet Elijah did say, as Christians like to claim
that he did,
that no one comes to the Father except by me.
You know, when we tried to explain to them that they shouldn't worship
Jesus, because he was a man or whatever, they will come back and say, but it says in the Gospel there, no one comes to the Father except by me.
By Me binding, if we're, if Jesus did say this,
how it would be understood is that
no one can come to the worship of God, except by the way of the Messenger of God.
Correct worship is only in accordance with the way which was brought by the Messenger of Allah.
So we that's the same thing we are faced with. We cannot worship Allah properly. We cannot love Allah. We cannot submit to Allah puppet company, except by doing it through the way the Prophet Muhammad wa salam has provided. I mean, it doesn't mean that we worship Prophet Muhammad Azam No, no.
It means that we must do it according according to the way that he brought for us.
And a lot of said in sword, Allium Ron, verse 31. Say, if you learn the law, follow me to the government to say this right? If you love a law, follow me, that is the messenger of a law and the law will love you and forgive you your sin. For Life up forgiving, most merciful, for the love of Allah for a lot to love us.
We have to obey the messenger of Allah,
we cannot attain
the love of Allah, except by submitting our will, to that
do the commandments of the Messenger of Allah.
the problems are solved them.
Or as I say, this is in the client itself.
And beside verse 13, and 14, Allah has
placed the reward for being the Prophet as paradise
and disobedience to him as hell.
whoever obeys the law and His Messenger, will be placed in gardens with reverence flowing beneath them to dwell therein forever. That is the greatest achievement
while those who disobey Allah His Messenger, and transgress the limits which he has set, will be placed in the fire to dwell there in forever and have a humiliating punishment.
So that's the bottom line.
And as you all said, the end of the day, this is where the comes to.
Those who obey Allah and His Messenger, follow the way of the sooner
I can, paradise those who do not, are headed for help.
And on one occasion, problems last element said, all of my nation will enter Paradise except those who refuse
when he said that the compiler is often who would refuse
to refuse to enter parliament.
said, Whoever disobeyed me, has refused.
This is invaluable ohare.
Whoever disobeyed me as a person, when he disobeys the Messenger of Allah, He is in fact saying I don't want to go to Paradise. I want help.
You know, this is these are the kind of concepts that we have to try to bring across to say, family members. You know, some
You brothers mentioned you know, your family members who
have neglected the center, and are caught up in visa, in the cultural innovations which have been handed down for generation and generation, you know,
the way to try to bring them to this kind of a consciousness is to, to bring these kinds of verses to them, you know, get them back to the core, to see what the law has said, concerning obedience to the messenger, doing,
making one's life be in accordance with the way of the messenger, you know, hopefully the verses of the Quran if they read it, and hear it, you know, it would maybe start to soften their hearts, to start to realize that they have to follow the way of the Prophet. And then having realized that, when you bring them the Hadees statements about one of our fellow which confirm that, and and, and, and affirm that they must follow his way.
And, of course, you know, as we mentioned in the first session,
one of the importance of the seminar is
to understand the quad.
To properly understand the quad, we stated The second method of interpretation of the Quran was gutsier of the Quran die sooner.
So we cannot properly understand the Quran, all of the crime without going to center. So not only is the thriller vital for us in terms of application of Islam on a general level, resolution of our disputes, etc. It is also essential for us to
follow the quarter to the cinema in order to understand the very revelation direct revelation of Allah to us the choir. And as I mentioned before, in the session on Tafseer, that the Quran cannot be separated from the Sunnah. And that whoever seeks to separate the Quran from the similar seeks to deviate people, this is a point of deviation, you will find deviants, commonly, they will notify the sooner, you know, like we read the books of the Shiites, generally speaking, they will they will quote verse of the Quran. And then they will say the amount said the amount Did you know
you hardly hear them say the Messenger of Allah said or did. So they cancel out the role of the sender. And they go directly to
the so called the mob and they attribute to them certain things statements, etc. So which now replaces the sender because once you cancel the call, you must replace its interpretation which was the similar with something else. Either it becomes the interpretation of the amount
or becomes the interpretation of the shape of the pier. You know, you read the books of the so called Sufi the cetera, you know the mystical writings, you will find that you know, these people who receive the special insight and these are the ones who are not going to be explaining the rest of the crowd to you. You don't hear them mentioning, Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said this or he said that the companions did this did that.
However, there is a very clear Hadith which speaks of this, because of course,
that there would come a time when people would claim that they would only follow the Quran. So Proverbs, Moses Allah was given that inspiration to make the statement.
Let me not find one of you reclining on his couch and saying when you hear something regarding which I have commanded or forbidden, I don't know.
What we have found in the last book we have followed.
This is in Abu Dhabi udon is an authentic narration. And furthermore,
he said, Indeed, I have brought the poor Ireland something like it along with it.
The time is coming when a man reclining on this couch will say, keep to this court arm, what you find it to be permissible, treat as permissible once you find it prohibited, treat as prohibited.
But what allows messenger as prohibited is like what a law has prohibited the domestic donkey
carnivorous wild animals lost property belonging to an ally unless the owner does not want it are all not permissible to you.
According to what is stated in the Quran,
we are allowed to eat whatever is outside of those animals which were killed in the forbidden ways by strangulation by going by clubbing etc. However, allows messenger is also prohibited the domesticated donkey domesticated donkey meaning
You know, if you take a donkey and you raise it yourself, you can ride it and you know another wild donkey, a domesticated donkey you cannot eat.
With a wild donkey if you you know, catch a wild donkey that lives in the bush, but a domesticated one raised, you can eat the flesh of that donkey.
So provinces are selling, he's the one who prohibited the domesticated dogs. He also prohibited carnivorous animals, Lion Tiger.
This is not in the choir. And this is what he pointed out. This you cannot separate the two, because that's the vision that he gave. This was not his whim. It wasn't because he didn't like
domesticated donkey, or he didn't like carnivorous animals that he permitted it No, this was based on revelation from Allah.
And we have a number of statements were in the problem as I sell them has informed us that
by holding on firm to the client in December, this is the way that people will stay on the correct path.
When you spoke about the different sects, etc, you know, and he wanted to identify for the people what is the correct way, you refer to the one which was based on the Quran and Sunnah. He said, for example, in the Hadees, reported, Bible, whoever
a mortar is authentic, I've left with you two things. If you hold firmly onto them, you will never go straight, a large book and my sooner
he drew he was sitting with the companions, and he drew a line in the sand the dust. And he drew a number of lines going off on either side. And he said to them, referring to the line which is down the middle, this is the last part.
And then in reference to the others going to the sides, he said these are the paths of misguidance.
At the end of each one, there is a devil inviting people to follow it
and recited the verse from the Koran
from suela nam verse 153 Verily, this is my path
leading straight. So follow it and do not follow the other path for they will scatter you about from a lost path.
That is his command to you in order that you may be conscious of a lot.
So, our guidance depends on following closely.
The Quran and the Sunnah.
And as you mentioned earlier, it is the crime the swindler as understood by the companions of the Prophet Muhammad salah and the early generation of righteous Muslim scholar.
Because you may find somebody around today, say I'm following crime and similar, but what they're doing in practice is quite different from what the quirements would actually said, Oh, it was understood by the early generation.
But having said that,
this will now
one of the problems are some said did descriptions of himself what he approved, should be divided into two categories. After we divided them into the first two categories of authentic and inauthentic. We said for his advice, right? And to understand those two categories of hate and bias.
Because of the time that we have, I really can't go into it in much detail. But this book, Islamic Studies, it's broken down quite simply there, you know, what is a Sahabi? For those who do you know, and
basically on pages 74 to
77. It explains in quite simple terms, the difference between hobbies, and hobbies.
That is the authentic and inauthentic when we're dealing with similar hobbies really, we have to be dealing ultimately with the authentic that which is
correct. Because if we are if we are to build a ruling in Islam on the basis of what the problems are Sallam said,
or did, then we have to be sure that that ruling actually was said or done by the public.
And that's what
we mean when we say it is an authentic Heidi's authentic sooner,
we're sure that it actually came from him if it's not authentic means there is doubt as to whether it actually came from him. We don't build the practices that are religion on doubt, we have to build on that which we are certain about.
Now, you know, having divided into the dice and we leave the dice aside, fabricated, we go over to the side here.
This can be divided into two categories,
that which we call the natural similar person, the puppy da and the legal foreigner or the Sunnah kashia de.
And this division is necessary
in order to
ensure that what we are following is what was intended to be followed. Why, because Prophet Muhammad wa salam was first and foremost a man
he was a man, a human being,
not having divine qualities, you know, as was asked about earlier, you know, this divine light, newer Muhammad which has been attributed that he was supposed to have been created, farm etc. Now, this is referred
to as a divine being, he was a human being,
is the difference between himself and ourselves is that he received revelation from Allah that elevated his status
to a higher level of human being, but not to a supernatural being someone who is now beyond human nature. No, he was a human being, he remained a human being
a human being, in the eighth century,
seventh century, actually, seventh century, seventh century, in Arabia.
This meant that, at that period of time, there are certain things which affected human beings
the environment affected them in a certain way, it meant they're going to dress a particular way.
They're going to have certain habits, etc. likes and dislikes, being a human being who will have personal likes and dislikes. So now,
when he received Revelation, Revelation,
you gave him guidance and commands
for mankind until the day of judgment.
But it didn't cancel out.
The fact that he was a human being
in Arabia in the sixth century,
seventh century doesn't count less. So it means that there are some things that he's going to do, because of these factors. Every human being the votive is something which she likes
which had nothing to do with revelation.
was commonly eaten in certain parts of Libya.
Even though in Riyadh
and by Is that like a visit iguanas, you know, big lizard like about this big,
fat body science down the back, you know?
I usually they eat the tail part because the tail is big and muscular
competitors, that chicken,
everything but this is what I'm told.
But the point is that
people were commonly ate this animal.
And on one occasion, the wives of the Prophet of Allah was serving it to him.
And one of the wives asked, the wife was 70 Did you tell him that it was met?
in art, it was laid out in front of him when he was just about each film when she told him his hand up.
Now, one of the competitors was sitting beside him.
he when he saw the facts about them, didn't eat it. He asked him he said, he said, Is this haram?
He said, No, it's just
it was not something common to the place where I grew up, and I don't like it. So the compiler he went ahead a tooth and the profit.
So we know that yo is poor.
No dislike of the problem with our salon, but it has no relevance to us. In terms of legal,
this was his personal dislike.
So we are not in any way obliged to not eat that it was Hello, finish motocross and didn't like it a lot didn't make it Haram, because he didn't like, that was his personal
feeling. Okay? So it's important that we understand this why because if a person
got locked into the similar to the point where they fought everything of the proper size, we must follow, he then he would now be forced to be molding his whole life to everything, which was our felon like or dislike, which has nothing to do even with the legal
aspects of Islam. And for sure, it would create some difficulties for him ultimately, because some of the things are suitable to that place that climate and and may not be suitable elsewhere.
What you found, for example, problem was I tell him, he said was a man and he was also living in Arabia. Arabia is the desert,
the sun is beating on your head all the time. So the people of Arabia wore, turban
wrapped turban on their heads, they all did
as well as those who accepted Islam.
So, we say wearing a turban is from the center. But it is not from the legal for now.
It is from the natural medicine department. Because that was the circumstances of the time. So we are no way obliged with that if you want to wake up and find
that do not feel that in doing so you're following the cinema in the sense that was intended
because there is no command with regards to wearing a turban.
if you wear a turban
and said that for those wearing turbans, they should put wear caps underneath the turban to distinguish them from the pagans.
So here is the legal aspect of wearing a turban. If you wear a turban, then you should distinguish your turban from the turban of the pagan by wearing a cap underneath your turban. So that is the legal aspect of wearing a turban, but wearing a turban and our feminine, this is up to you.
Similarly, on a personal level with our fellow when he went to the marketplace to choose sandals to wear, he chose a particular kind of sandwich he liked one which had to strap on it.
Maybe in Yemen.
Some cows level with the brownish red cow brother with the hair shaved off. This is a description of the prophet SAW Selim several features the rest of the market, he chose this he like this.
Now, this is his personal choice.
It doesn't mean that when we go to buy a Sonos, we have to buy this kind of stuff.
However, if you some people who have become sort of
a distorted view of the center where they've just grabbed onto everything, you find
it there's a book called smiley tiramisu which is published in Lahore. But with notes written by Mohammed, Zachary, I should say my activity was written by the heavy scholar activities in which you gathered these concerns the problem of sub sub descriptions etc. And this has been translated already on from there into English along with the commentary. Now, when you read this commentary,
you may maybe available in bookstores here you pick it up when you read it, and you read about the prophet SAW Selim sandal and in the commentary, you find the commentator Mohammed Zakaria, he is saying that
there are so many barricades in these kind of sandals. And if you even draw a picture of the samples, you know, and you keep it in your room, that is going to increase the quality of your life, you know, when you money and
gone out of left field.
You know, this is mediation.
Because this is a process of elevating now the process, so that the founder that he won, I was like the, like the capitalists, you know, they have
pieces of the cross in on a piece of the rope that was supposedly on Jesus when he was under, you know, this left. So people come and take Baraka from here. And of course, you find it in the Muslim world, I live in Pakistan, they have a tooth, which they say was the tooth which came up, most was knocked out. And, you know, and they have one that people want everything to be every time his birthday comes around. In the year, they bring out this truth, and people come, you know, to make touch it and whatever, right. And the point is that if you go to Turkey, you know, in the Topkapi Museum, they also have a toothless tooth, it says the tooth that came out, it was easy to have one.
But we may only last one to fit what you were on. And what's the one you got enough to fill a hole mode, right? All these people are picking back up.
And, of course, even islamically speaking, we reject it, we reject it outright, because the only way we can accept that this is the truth of apartments, if you have a chain of narration right back to the Sahaba, who pick up the truth behind the Butler,
who gave it to his son who gave it down in order to pretend that we have the chain all the way down to say, yes, this was the truth of the professor, he didn't have any of these kids.
I know offer in Pakistan, India, and you know, in them elsewhere, they have here, supposedly, from the podcast on the head, you know, and these years have continued to grow this they claim, you know,
again, you know, we reject all this stuff. Besides the Silicon Valley, this thing that comes out of people trying to take Baraka from these years and sneezes like this, I mean, just the fact that there's no basis for authenticity, because there's no change to to assure us that this in fact, was from the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah.
However, when a pistol with a sandal, there is
legal attached to wearing the sandal, not on the kind of things that the sandals were. But in the wearing of the sample itself problems or something like that. Whenever one of you puts on sandals, he should put on the right foot first.
And when you pick them off, you should take off the left foot first.
For the for the legal for the one you put on.
Whenever you put on your sandals, you put on the right foot first, when you pick up the sandals, you pick up the left foot.
This is the collection that will show you the general pattern put on the right first take off the left. First.
This is a part of the the you could say the etiquette of a Muslim in wearing shoes.
Now, of course somebody would question yes.
fella who said, when you go to the bathroom, step in with an effort
when you come out of the bathroom, step out with the right foot first, when you go into the masjid, step into the right foot first and come out of the masjid you step out with the left foot. So somebody
stepping into the right and the left and putting on the right and the left.
You know, what kind of religion is this? were you telling you what to put in here and out? You know, for some people, especially in modern times, you know, people who tend to question coming out of a backhoe, Western tobacco people.
The point is that
went into this a little bit because it's imperative for us to sort of have a kind of a, an understanding of this, because you will run into this and you should be able to give some kind of clarity to people, you know, why would Islam go to the point of telling you which foot to put on in your shoes for a sandwich for the step in the bathroom with them.
The point is that
when you observe animals,
they'll do things in a haphazard fashion.
When a dog goes to you, and he doesn't always lift his right foot, sometimes listens, rises left. However, it doesn't follow any particular pattern.
We are not animals.
What distinguishes ourselves from animals is that we have systems.
Build a home, we drive a car, we run a business out of these depend on systems where you have to do this first. And you do that after.
If you don't do this first, it's not gonna work. You get in a car, you want to drive, you start turning the steering wheel, you're not going anywhere. You got to put the key in the ignition. There is a series of rituals that you have to go through to get that car going
and to stop the car. If you don't follow
car doesn't work
in the same way that we would we recognize the need for system in order in the outer world for things to be done. Why shouldn't we recognize the system in order for our
we operate according to system. We are conscious of what we're doing.
He's just not doing it unconsciously, you just throw things on people that you know, no, but you're conscious of what you do. Because in being conscious
when you're putting on the right foot first you're remembering the suddenness
remembering the sinner remembering to submit to the commandments of a lot. And in doing so you're remembering a lot.
And that is it that makes a personalized remembrance of Allah.
When remember a lot,
you will be
when you forget Allah
That's just the bottom line in terms of righteousness, good and evil. You remember a lot you'll be? I mean, why did Adam this Obi
Satan, caused him to forget
these things, you know,
if he did this, he will become like an angel or become eternal and Deepak and he forgot
Allah and the command. And so he disobeyed
the Prophet Musa. Remember, when he was with COVID, and he left the fish. He said, you know, we have forgotten about the fish, the fish have gone back in the water. He said, You know, it was
Satan, who caused me to forget.
And this is how, when I first remembering the commandments of the Messenger of Allah, and in that way, remember a lot. And this helps to remind us to do good
unless you see in these various commandlets Is that the right is favored over the left, is it
whenever we're doing something which is good, the right is favorite over the left, because when you put shoes on the ship, you're you are doing something with your foot, right, you want their foot outside of step on grass, wherever you cut it off. So you took us on the line, you're protecting it with something good that you're doing to your foot. So you do it to the right foot first, then the left, you're eating it with your right hand.
With your left,
the good things you do with the right,
the left going into the toilet, you step in with the left.
Now, what this also reminds us again, is of the Day of Judgment.
When a lot of seven bit judgment, they're going to paradise. When we see the book of good deeds in the right hand,
we're going to hell receive it in the left hand behind their backs.
So choosing the right over the left favoring the right this is also built into the system of recognizing righteousness and seeking to do righteousness.
Seeking to be amongst those who are going to

those are your major categories into which the Muslim scholars have divided up everything. Everything we do in our life, everything we eat everything where everything which exists around us comes under one of these
always thought a lot.
So for example, we have the issue of smoking.
Smoking cigarettes, Ganja, marijuana, no doubt.
But smoking cigarettes is an issue which many people said.
We hear some people say,
how do we,
On what basis was it?
When smoking when tobacco first came into the Muslim world, into the Ottoman Empire, the scholars of the time, they looked at the effects of smoking.
And the only thing they could see as an effect from it was bad breath.

And they were had these

because, of course, prayer when we make a law, you know, we say so.
If you're just eating some garlic, that's definitely
harming your Muslim brother.
So you're not allowed to eat garlic.
So they will, based on this, they said, okay, since this is similar causes similar effects. We make a similar ruling, that smoking dissolve.
a few years back,
after extensive research of half a century,
the medical profession have concluded without a doubt that smoking produces cancer
and cancer, cute.
Therefore, smoking kills
you body of knowledge.
So the ruling now has to change, you can keep going about by the same ruling was made 400 years ago, we have a new situation here now. Information tells us now that smoking kills. So we have a new category, we have a category of a poison.
Before we know in this law firm doesn't know whoever killed himself.
It did so by drinking poison
by finding himself
perpetually unhealthy. So we know that
As we said, whenever a punishment
for a deed is defined the deed becomes
ruling for smoke.
Of course I know smokers will say well,
maybe 40 years from now maybe and the point in Islamic law. If you take

But if you are a diabetic
