This is session 64
the air the inheritor name number 787
In terms of location in the Quran
the divine name on wildlife is found in only three places.
Two of which are are in law national Nashi. One omit? We're not gonna worry soon.
It is only I who gives life and causes death and I am the inheritor Sora hedger verse 23.
And in Surah Lambie avarice 89 was a Korea is not out of bow rugby, latterly for them for antiroll while 18
and Zaccaria when he cried out to his Lord, My Lord do not leave me alone. Although you are the best of inheritors
in terms of the meaning,
linguistically what is comes from the trilateral route. Wow, raw fat
whose master is Ireson?
It's a verbal noun
having three main meanings. The first meaning is to inherit the second is to be a survivor and the third is to be the owner or maintainer after someone has passed
this rule it appears some 35 times in the Quran and five derived forms. Examples of these forms are not so we will inherit
Mirassou heritage and and Wi Fi in the inheritors.
What if is the present participle in the basic file, standard form, pattern
relative to Allah and what if is the supreme heir to whom the heritage of the heavens and the earth belongs?
Awareness is the one who remains after the extinction of everyone and everything is the only one to whom all will return
is the sole inheritor and owner of the whole of creation.
As he said, In swirl OS, verse 58, welcome Alekna min Korea tin Batara. My shatta fertilitycare Misaki newhome LEM to scan may embody him in LA kalila
but couldn't know no worry thing. And how many towns have I destroyed, who exalted in their life of ease? Here are their dwellings uninhabited after them except for a few and I am the inheritor.
In terms of the effects of the Divine Name of the word from the believer
praying using this divine attribute we have the first there are two types of prayer the first of which is a prayer of request or masala Abu Huraira related that on some occasions the Prophet SAW Selim used to pray saying Allahumma met tyranny be summary for Abbasali which Allah Houma L word it's a mini one Sunni Allah man you have lemony because many men who be sorry for Allah give me pleasure in my hearing and my sight and take make them inheritors of good from me as me against Whoever oppresses me and take vengeance from him. For me. We ask Allah to make our hearing and site witnesses against that, for us on the Day of Judgment
and not witnesses against us.
A law said
in for many.
Our sight and hearing would be witnesses against us and sewer facilite
we find a lot. They're saying. Kata Marja hoo, ha Shahida, I lay him summer home, while risotto, whom, what julu whom be my cannoli, I'm alone.
Until when they reached hell they're hearing and their sight and their skins will testify against them regarding what they used to do.
That's through our facilite verse 20.
Our supplications to Allah using the Divine Name and divine attributes of inheritance should be prayers in which we ask Allah to make us true, righteous inheritors, of whatever he provided with
in this life, in this world,
whatever he provided us, in this world.
As nothing belongs to us in the true sense, even our senses of sight and hearing generations of human being saw and heard before us
all the way back to Prophet Adam and his wife Eve, they no longer see and hear as we do. So we have inherited the abilities from them. And a day will come when we will lose them, or our descendants will inherit them from us. So for the limited amount of time that we have these senses, we should pray that we use them to benefit ourselves and not to harm ourselves. We should be very conscious of being held responsible for how we use them, and our complete inability to go back in time and correct our mistakes.
We have only one opportunity to do it right. And we need to make the best of it. The other form of prayer using this name
is prayer of worship. Our prayer is utilizing the divine name of inheritance should be or the divine attribute of inheritance should be prayers of worship. A prayer of worship is reflected in a particular type of behavior.
through which the believer expresses his or her detachment, what is known in Arabic as orba or weaning from this maternal material world and the establishment of our hidden or Bodia of Allah in its place, that is the unity of worship of Allah submission to Allah.
In return for continued possession and ownership, of a portion, as rightful inheritors. In order to achieve this, we should direct all of our desires words and deeds in such a way as to reflect this status even are related that on one occasion the Prophet SAW Salem held him by his two shoulders and said, couldn't fit dunya can Naka hurry Boon are very severe. Oh, I Biru civilian be in this world as if you are a stranger or traveler. The sub Narrator I did even Walmart used to say, if you survive till the evening, do not expect to live in the morning is that I'm Seta for Latin, Saba
and if you survive till the morning do not expect to be alive in the evening without matter for that another
Well, who's minster heretic melodic instead take from your health for your sickness or mean hieratic, demotic, and from your life for your death.
I'm delighted Miss Erland also related that on one occasion, the Messenger of Allah was sleeping on a mat from woven dead palm leaves. When he stood up,
even Massoud said, we noticed that the mat had left marks on his side. So we asked the Messenger of Allah can we get a bed for you? To which he replied, Molly O'Malley dunya ma NFS dunya Illa Kuraki bin Estelle Allah, Taka Shakira. Some more ah ha Ouattara. kaha Taraka? What do I have to do with this world? What is there for me? And what is there for this world?
In this world, I'm only a rider
who seeks shade under a tree. Then he departs and leaves
the trees shade.
The believer should realize and be certain that Allah is the only one who distributes the portions of provisions. And the real inheritance is knowledge,
moral character, good behavior, and inheritance of paradise. As the Lord said tilcon JANA allottee no Riku Minh a bad man cannot takia that is paradise, which I will grant to those of My servants who are devout
hula Aika Hulu it soon. I lead in a very soon and fair dose, home fee ha Holly dune.
These are the inheritors, who will inherit paradise remaining in it forever. So I'm sorry, I'm verse 63. And Surah me noon. Verse, verses 10 and 11.
In terms of application, according to even backhauls four principles, the first of which is adopt where applicable, the divine name and what if may be adopted and applied in four different ways.
The first is to understand the implications of the Divine Name and internalize its meaning in our lives with regard to our wealth and trusteeship.
The second is the deep understanding of trusteeship should cause the believers to be charitable as it is the best way to preserve the value of our wealth and possessions.
And thirdly, it may be adopted and applied by directly implementing the Islamic rules and regulations of inheritance and defending them
So the first, which is wealth and property trusteeship,
some houses in Muslim lands have written on their doors or gates, the owner is Allah.
Instead of having their family names in recognition of the reality of the Divine Names of Allah and Malik awarded
when we truly realize that whatever we possess actually belongs to Allah, and has only been temporarily entrusted to us, we will sincerely become aware that we will be asked about how we looked after it. wealth and property have been given to us temporarily in order for a lot to make us see how we managed or mismanaged them as their inheritors and trustees. Allah said in this regard, I'm a newbie law he was really well I'm fipple mimma gyla Come mustafina fee for ladina Mahnomen gum where I'm faco level agilon kavir Believe in Allah and His messenger and donate from what he has trusted to you. Those among you who believe and donate will gain agreement or al Hadid, verse seven
human beings are like treasures. cashiers are tellers, who are held responsible for the wealth that they have in their possession. And Allah is continually watching over them. Ultimately, God will call us to account and he will inform us of whatever we did with our inherited possessions. Everything that we think and act as if we own will return to Allah, the ultimate inheritor,
the only one who will remain after all of creation is annihilated and vanishes.
This is like the emotion we experienced when visiting the luxurious palatial home of someone dead and gone. His children are the ones now enjoying the home, because they are his inheritors. They are the new trustees. Allah reminds us of that reality saying in Nununu notice,
in the NACA, no notice will auto doc woman, la ha, y la now Yoda Jarwin. It is I ever will inherit the earth and whatsoever is on it, and to me, they will be returned. So our Maryam verse 40.
After all of the children have inherited from all of their parents, and the last human being passes away,
everything remaining will return back to its True Owner, Allah, the inheritor of all
the true inheritors, since the prophets and messengers of Allah are the best of humankind, to inherit from them would naturally be the best possible inheritance one could possibly hope for.
In the Topkapi Palace Palace Museum in Istanbul, Turkey. They have many artifacts attributed to the last prophet, Muhammad, Ibn Abdullah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, the prophets turban, his cloak sandals, even here is from his head, etc, or they're supposedly preserved for the last 1400 years. But these objects have no historical evidence of a chain of reliable narrators to prove their authenticity. Because for them to be authentic, a Sahabi had to get it
or one of his rights
would be considered amongst the Sahaba Sahabi yet,
then he or she would pass it on to somebody from the
tabby or on the next generation.
And then that person from the tambien would pass it on to the tabular database and so on and so forth. We'd have to have a chain of narrators, reliable narrator is not just named stuck there. People who are known evidence given for them Hadith narrators, scholars of Hadith, analyze all of this. So without that chain, then we have something which is just based on hearsay.
Though the 1000s who visit the museum every year
Let the artifacts and long to touch them and funnel them in the hope that some of the baraka are blessings which they assume must be on them would rub off in the process. Similarly declaimed strand of hair of the Prophet saw some of them in the hazard bol mosque trying in Srinagar,
Jammu and Kashmir India.
Where is the chain of narration linking it to the disciple who got it from the Prophet SAW.
All that Kashmir is have on record is that in 1635
the relic was brought to India by Sayid Abdullah, who was saved Abdullah and taken to the city of Beija. Poor
who was saying Abdullah, and whom did he get to hear from?
God alone knows. All that is known as that his son said Hamad or Hamid
pass them on to a Kashmiri businessman named Nora dean.
And who has noted in such relics, as these are of no value, and are in most cases, fake. The real inheritance of the last prophet Salam Salam is not to be found in his relics, and ancient artifacts, whether true or false. The real inheritance is in the knowledge of Islam which he brought.
The Messenger of Allah himself said in the lower Lama waterfed Ambia. Indeed, the scholars are the heirs of the prophets.
Well, in Ambia lamb you read to dinakaran wala dear Hama, and the prophets did not leave behind dinners or Durham's in the amount of water through Elma from an AKA the FBI Academy. How then warfare.
The only inheritance of the scholars is knowledge. So whoever takes from it, he has take indeed taken the most able share.
Consequently, when someone's share of this life, his wealth, as in the case of Qarun,
known as quarter and English, let us not forget that Allah gave Qarun great wealth, yet he didn't love him. Then he took it all back from him in an instant.
A law records
in the clients or customers for 79 and when Cora came out before his people in the splendor, those who desire the worldly life said, If only we possess the likes of what Cora has was given, he is truly very fortunate.
Then a lot goes on to say, but those gifted with knowledge said, Woe to you, the reward of Allah is better for those who believe and work righteousness, yet none attains it except the patient.
And in verse 81,
Allah was on to say, so I caused the earth to cave in on him and his mansion for herself NaVi will be daddy he an art from our cannula who been fitting Jung Soo Yanzhou. Now, when do Nilla well my akan Aminul Moon Tasi rule, or moon taslim they are no group to save him from Allah. nor could he defend himself.
An ally in verses 82 said, and those who desired his position the day before we're saying, unfortunately, it seems Allah gives abundantly or sparingly to whom he wills of His servants, and Alon not been gracious to us. He would have caved the earth in on us also, sadly, but certainly the ungrateful never prosper.
The second form of worship
is or the second principle,
applying the name
of Allah is giving charity
For a lot say
Allah has encouraged the believers to spend from their wealth in his path, reminding them that they inherited whatever wealth they had, and were authorized to utilize it. According to the Sharia requirements, we should be fully aware that we are merely one in a line of successors, to whom the wealth has been handed down. We do not own it in reality, Allah said,
I'm a new belying what surely, well, I'm fipple mimma Gianna whom mustafina fee.
Believe in Allah and His messenger and donate from what he has made us successors, with.
Those among you who believe and charitably donate will have a great reward for Latina Armano Minco Well, I'm fuku la homage rune Kabir to a hadith verse seven.
Allah unwired if encourages spending charitably. By wanting those who do not spend charitably for Allah sake during their lives, that their wealth will all go back to Allah when they die anyway, because inheritance of the heavens and earth and their content contents all belong to him in the first place. Allah the inheritor said, well, Marla Koon, a Latin FICO V. sebelah will allow him your office somehow it will out what is the matter with you, that you do not spend in a large way, when Allah And to Allah belongs, the inheritance of the heavens and the earth through a hadith verse 10,
Abu Huraira He quoted the province as synonymous further emphasizing this warning by saying, a servant will say my wealth, my wealth,
your Kulu, lab, Mali, Mali, but only three things out of his wealth, or his whatever he eats, and it is digested and disappears. What he dresses himself with, and he wears it out, and what he gives in charity and keeps as a reward in the hereafter. What is beyond that is gone and left for others.
What is given in charity is preserved as good deeds in the life to come. As well as being the cause of Allah increasing our provisions above Herrera related that the Prophet Mohammed said, Paul, Allahu Allah Fick, you have Naadam
son of Adam. Allah said, spend in charity, and I will spend on you
have to live in must erode. He also reported to the Prophet SAW Salem once asked them who among you considers his wealth
or considers the wealth of his ears, dear to him then his own wealth? They replied, every one of us loves our own wealth more. So the problem is lots of them said his wealth is whatever he spends during his life.
The wealth of his ears is whatever he leaves behind. After his death.
Refining raffia reported that he went with the Messenger of Allah to the masala one occasion, and he saw the people doing business. So he said, oh, people have trade, and they responded to the messenger by turning their necks and their gazes towards him. Then he said, in two jar
Yerba Buena yo Malkia Mati Fujairah Illa money taka Allah, wa Bara Masada
will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment when the wicked except the one who is mindful of Allah
who behaves charitably. And who is truthful.
So behind Allah
all of these warnings were meant to further bring home the concept of us being only trustees for whatever wealth has fallen into our hands, not its owners. We can either use it to benefit ourselves by spending charitably and increasing its value in both this life and the next. Or we can choose to be uncharitable, lose its value in both
His life in the next and be held accountable for its misuse.
way of applying
the divine name and what it is by following the inheritance laws of the Quran and the Sunnah
application of the Divine Name and wireless requires the believers to follow the rulings and laws regarding inheritance in Islam as laid out in the Quran and demonstrated in the Sunnah. We must refer to them in every situation requiring the calculation of inheritance, whether it brings us worldly benefit or not. Some people follow their own rules of inheritance to favor some family members over others
and heirs may not object in order to gain more financial benefits. And other times men inheritors prevent female inheritance, like their sisters or even their mothers from inheriting this type of behavior is a grave sin and open disobedience to Allah, a wife. So we should ask Him to guide us to stick to the his rulings at all times.
As the law said, or my Canon the movement in Willa movement is I've called on law who are Azula who am run a Akun Allahumma hirato Minh amre him or my jasola or Sula who taka Dolla dolla lon movida. It is not befitting for a believer, man or woman to have any opinion when Allah and His Messenger have already decided on a matter and Whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into Claire Surah sub verse 36. The Quranic norm is that only the general instructions regarding Islamic laws and practices are found there.
The details are usually left to be filled in by the Prophet SAW Selim sunnah. For example, the formal prayers Salah are not described in detail, neither Zeca and Hutch. However, in the case of inheritance, the vast majority of the laws governing them and the whole system of inheritance and inheritance distribution, they're all found in the Quran. And only a few general issues are found in the Sunnah.
It is in the Sunnah, for example, that we learn the general rule that Muslims cannot inherit from non Muslims or that a separate will or will see cannot be made for those who are already designated inheritors in the Quran.
The fine details of Muslim inheritance can be found in the Quran in surah. And DISA, verses 1112 and 176 and is a part of Phase Two refer to these whenever inheritance has to be calculated and distributed.
Now, the apparent unequal division of inheritance between men and women is sometimes cited as an example of Islamic oppression of women.
However, before looking at the Division of inheritance in Islam with regards to women, one needs to look at the reality of Western inheritance laws. The right to inherit an old own property was only given to women in the west at the turn of the century.
Whereas that right was given to women in Islam 1400 years ago.
Furthermore, in the West, a person may legally write a will, giving all of their wealth to their dogs or cats, while excluding their wives and their children and relatives.
In the Islamic system, the rights of wives children and relatives to inherit are protected. Set portions of the inheritance to be given to them are identified in the Quran. In detail, no one can write a will and cancel or modify what is due to their heirs. It will can be written to give up to a maximum of 1/3 to those who would not inherit by the standard laws of the grind. As to leaving even the 1/3 of one's wealth to animals. The Muslim state would step in on behalf of the inheritors if they wished and cancel such a will, as it obviously indicates some form of mental disorder. The third
would be then divided up among the notch
in Islamic Society men are responsible for the maintenance of women. This is the general principle we're looking at now, why this two to one ratio for males and females when dividing up the inheritance in Islam.
So for example, if a son,
a daughter and a mother inherits the Son also has the additional responsibility of looking after his sister and his mother.
Consequently, based on the male's additional roles, Islamic law in general awards the son twice the portion
of the daughter, a ratio of
two to one. However, the two to one division is not applied in all cases. For example, the Quran states if a man or woman dies and leaves behind Neither parents nor children, but as a brother and a sister, each of them gets 1/6. And if there are more than two siblings, they equally share 1/3. So Anissa verse 11.
So if only the brother and sister of the deceased are living,
or two brothers or two sisters 1/3 of the inheritance would be equally divided up between them.
And if there are more than two, for example, there were three consisting of one male and two females, or any other combination 1/3 would still be divided equally among them, regardless of the number of males.
The Quranic prayer of difficulty,
Allah Allah ydF instructs the believers to express their recognition and acceptance of two primary facts, whenever calamity befalls them, whether major or minor, and this is point number four
of the four
ways by which the
name on wildlife can be applied by us shipments.
As I said,
and why this instructs the believers to express their recognition and acceptance of two primary facts whether any calamity befalls them, major or minor. The idea being that in our verbal and psychological recognition of these two facts, we can find strength of mind and emotion to accept and handle the trials of life. Which Allah's shortest are inevitable.
Allah said Well, enough Luana, kombucha immunol how fuel Jewry are not the same mineral I'm Wally well amphis Webflow Murat or machinery slobbering, I will test you with some fear and hunger and loss of life, lives and crops. So give good news to those who are patient, to Al Baqarah, verse 155, there is no escaping this reality. From the time we enter this world until the time we leave, we will be in a state of struggle. Life for human beings is synonymous with hardship. From our entrance into this world crying, to learning how to roll over how to crawl, how to stand up how to walk and run. We struggle on through all the stages of life. A lot of white is said now called the color
canal in Santa Fe Cabot. I have certainly created humankind in hardship. So unbelievers for
the first primary fact is that we belong to Allah, as it is He Who created us in this life of toil and struggle.
The second primary fact is that everything will crumble fall down and disintegrate, leaving nothing behind. And Allah alone will endure.
He will inherit everything as he is unwanted. Everything will return to Him.
So Ally instructed those who are able to patiently endure the trials of life
that they should pray in Manila he were in LA he Roger on i levena. I saw that for musi button Corlew in La La he are in LA he Roger Oh, those who are afflicted by a calamity. Say to allow him belong to Him we will return.
Although people generally make this prayer, only when someone has died. A lot did not specify
suffice it for Deaf announcements, instructed that we make the prayer whenever a disaster or trial or tribulation hits us, even if the loss is of an object, like a mobile telephone. Let us revive this sooner and confirm this vicar prayer regularly in our times of loss.
Moving on to the second
principle, to confirm were unique and inapplicable.
Extreme Shiite claims have according to extreme Twelver Shiite beliefs, recorded in their most authentic collection of narrations from the 12 infallible called Rasul l Caffee. The universe and its contents are all in the hands of the amounts. I'll Collini, the author of Al Caffee, entitled one of the chapters, all the earth is owned by the Imam, enmity narrated from Abu Basir that Abu Abdullah
Imam Jafar Assad said I was supposed to upset Did you know that this world and the next word are owned by the imam
who may place it wherever he likes, and granted to anyone he chooses.
According to mainstream belief.
All of creation, this world and the next are owned by Allah alone,
and only he can grant it to anyone he pleases.
So behind Allah.
Thus, this claim
for the Shiite Imams
is against the basic belief and Allah's unique unity.
Not to be outdone,
extreme Sufi beliefs have similar ideas among the extreme beliefs and Sufi sex like the Naksha Mandy's following the Turkish Cypriot Sufi share, known as Chef mousing, who died in 2014.
Is the claim that the chief saints So Don and Alia, owns this world.
They state, everything that you know of,
is under the spiritual control of Sudan and Alia,
he is the one who is in charge of all mankind in this universe, is also in charge of all the worlds of the jinns and the angels.
The Divine Name and worth the inheritor implies that since Allah is the only real owner of everything in existence, he alone is in charge of humankind in this universe. He alone owns the world, and therefore is in charge of both worlds of the jinn and the angels. Does believe in this divine name and attribute allottee requires us to completely reject such claims by the Shiites and the X dream Sufis. Indeed, we shouldn't be perfectly clear that if Allah is the only true creator of Khalid al Hala
everything in existence belongs to him alone, and he alone is in charge of everything. such clarity of belief leaves no room at all, for the previously mentioned heretical claims of such deviant sex.
The third principle to have hope, where there is a promise,
according to him in Batal.
It contains a hidden promise of inheritance. For the believers, the name and wildlife contains a hidden promise of inheritance for the believers. And while it's also means the one who makes the believers inherit the abodes of the disbelievers in both this life and the next, as the Lord said,
Well, I would rather come out of the home with the IRA home. What am Wallah home? Well out of done LEM totowa. What kind of love while actually Shay in pudiera
and he made you inherit their land, their homes, their wealth, and a region you had not even stepped on? And Allah is capable of all things who are Zobrist 27
History is a witness to the believers inheriting rule over much of the known world. Within 25 years of the death of Prophet Muhammad SAW
an incredibly rapid and vast expansion unprecedented in the recorded human history. Likewise, believers will inherit the abodes intended for disbelievers in Paradise, and Allah will grant them eternal life in them, as Allah said, will follow the hamdulillah in lady sort of an Awada for our afinil out of the NATA Bo Mina Jannetty Hi So Nasha for near my Judo laminin and we will say and they will say Praise be to Allah was fulfilled his promise to us and made us inherit the land and join paradise as we please.
Oh excellent is the reward of the sincere workers Sora Zuma for seven before.
However, we should note that the believers inheritance of paradise and eternal resonance in it doesn't mean that they will share in a loss divine attributes of eternal existence.
Hold because the eternal existence of paradise and its inhabitants is due to Allah causing them to continue to exist eternally, and due to his wish for them to do so. Thus the eternal existence of created things, created beings and places is neither natural nor is it an essential attribute or they refer to a CIFA that year, belonging to the creative beings and the
Instead, it is the nature of all of them to crumble, fall apart, disintegrate and vanish. They depend on Allah to eternally exist. On the other hand, Allah has eternal existence and his inheritance of all as well as the remainder of his divine attributes are all naturally essential for him, are essential to him.
For Allah in contrast with eternally existing creation,
the attribute of eternal existence is an attribute of essence.
In the case of Allah
eternally existing creation, when you relate the two, it's a natural attribute of existence for Allah
and an acquired attribute for creation. That's Allah remains the inheritor of all creations in this life, and the next
have fear where there is a warning principle number four, understanding the implications of the Divine Name and what it includes accepting that the wealth in our hands as inheritors must be used to do business in an honest way, pleasing to Allah. Otherwise, whatever we have dishonestly earned, from doing this honest business, with what we have inherited, will be cursed.
Of the rock. moneyman Shubin
quoted the Messenger of Allah is saying in to Jara Hohman Fauja. The traders are surely the most corrupt people. Somebody asked or messenger of Allah didn't allow make trade permissible for us? And he replied, certainly, but you speak and lie,
and you make alls and commit sins.
On another occasion, Abu Seidel Hodari quoted the Prophet SAW selama saying, A Tadros Sadu. I mean, my nabina was Cindy Cain our shoulder. The truthful honest trader will be with the prophets, the truthful and the mark martyrs. This business people who resist the often irresistible temptation to cheat their customers earn a special place in paradise for their efforts. It is worth noting that rather than Islam being spread by the sword, as is commonly claimed by detractors, and enemies of Islam, Islam actually spread in places like Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, as well as West Africa, East Africa, by merchants from Oman and other parts of Arabia, who after that
conversion to Islam began to scrupulously trade according to just unfair business principles,
their customers in Africa and Asia must have been amazed and confused by the change. traders who for generations used to follow the standard method methods of deception, trading by deception, hiding the the deficiencies and, and,
and problems that exist in the goods that they were selling, hiding it from their customers covering it over one way or another. That's what they're used to. Suddenly these traders abandoned them. It must have been a major shock for them.
Their customers would have had no idea of the merchants conversion, or the major campaign which the Prophet SAW Salem launched against deception and cheating and Jade. So once they found out then what was left for them but to accept Islam.

will now shift to the third segment of our program
or our session.
And that is questions. q&a, we have a few try to answer them for you. The first of the questions is from mazembe. Mill Ahmed. How does a person with excessive wasa differentiate between intentional and unintentional mistakes?
Well, if you can't distinguish, let's assume that they're unintentional.
And do what is required. Whether it's
sudo the shocker, sorry, sudo the sow in our prayers, we would need an intentional unintentional mistakes in the prayers or intentional mistakes where we've lost something out of the prayer we have to redo the prayer that's a different situation.
From our Instagrammers a few minutes asking, Is it helpful to other male friend to have male friends with a distance like only talking and being friendly, no physical?
Well, it depends on what the Talking is about.
If the Talking is about halau things, then
it is not something
Although there are dangers in it, so
seeking to have many male friends are many female friends, for males is not
something that we as Muslims should do because of the danger that potentially can come from it.
Second question from the

any further question from Instagramers?
is celebrating birth make birthdays permitted? A lot of people have told me that it is haha.

haram in the sense that
it is a an annual
celebration. They call it you know, eat me lad,
an annual celebration,
which the Prophet SAW Salem
forbade, except in three cases.
Oh sorry, that is in two cases either a lot harder, and a little fitter.

But in any case, better you don't do it.
