of you to align with
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all those who follow the path of righteousness until about the
topic of today's clip that
was the divine wish, of a law. That is,
what a law was.
What a law has
the divine wish.
And the amount began in the presentation of the cookbook,
by raising the question
that we should have in this regard,
What is it that we want?
But before looking at what it is that we want?
Forget that it is essential for us to be clear
on who we are,
why we are here?
Who is our Lord?
All these type of questions need to be answered before we can effectively look into the question
what we want
because if we're not clear
on the purpose of our creation,
and who are loaded,
it's very easy for us to desire thing, which in fact, will be of no benefit to us
in both this life, or the next.
So, the amount of suggesting that it was first important for us to build our link with a law to establish our connection with a law knowing clearly Who am I
knowing clearly what our responsibilities are.
And having understood these, then we can seek to fulfill what it is that we want out of this life.
And in order to
help us to find what we are what we should want.
He mentioned what it is that a lot wishes from us.
what he has mentioned is all from the choir.
And then they
should come across
and should reflect on them. From the beginning of the crime to the end. We have a lot of things that he wishes
he wants from you that
And it's essential for us
to meet regularly as we talk about
coming out of rubber bands.
Coming out of Ramadan, we spoke about reading the Quran regularly This was one of the lessons or things that we should have gained from Ramadan.
In reading the Quran regularly, we should concentrate on what it is about wishes for us. But in any case, the amount mentioned
one of the verses which is
with regard to allow
you need to love before
that allow wishes for ease and he does not wish for difficulty
allowing allow for us.
That is that the religion that he has described for us
is not a difficult religion. It is not in order to create burden for us to put certain burdens on our backs to make life difficult for us.
This is not the purpose of ordaining the religion of Islam for
the purpose of our dating that religion is to make life easier for us.
And if we grasp
the essence of the religion,
if we understand
both the letter and the spirit,
then the E is that within the religion becomes clear to us.
But if we have not grasped the inner message,
the spirit of the rituals that are required
then the religion will appear to us to be a burden.
Getting up early morning to make fudger
fasting giving up our wealth
All of these things, for somebody who is not conscious or not understanding of what is behind these things,
it appears to be a series of burdens.
And this is why also you have some non Muslims, when Islam is presented to them
to any rules, regulation,
you know, you can't drink
party anymore, you
shouldn't be listening to music shouldn't be doing this, you shouldn't be doing that, you know, things like so many restrictions. You know, you find people law, yes, I like the idea of this one guy with, you know, too many restrictions, I still want to have a good time, Islam seems to take away the good times, you know, you can't have the good times that he wants.
But in fact, the really good time only come for those who are true believers, who are applying the law of God.
Those are those who truly attained the good times in this life.
Which is, of course, even more important.
So it is very important for a lot fuller, that he wishes for ease and not difficulty. And
the religion is
yet to make things easy for people, you know, with regard to religion, don't make it difficult.
There are so many statements from the government or from them with, in this regard,
emphasizing the ease, that means that any of us was not grasped the ease that is really inside of this religion of Islam.
It means that they need to study,
study more carefully,
ask questions, sits with people who know whatever, get that clarity, so that the religion will become a way of life for us a living faith that
motivates us in the way that it should motivate us towards righteousness. And not the just a series of acts that we do, which have no effect really on our personalities, our character, whether it's moral or whatever, we're just doing these rituals, you know, because our parents did it.
Because God said to do it, why he said to do it, I don't really know. But I better do it because I want to get hired as me to do it. But you know, we're adding it in this kind of a mechanical fashion where if we do these rituals will go to Paradise, but the ritual themselves, if they are not,
with the spirits,
that is behind the rituals,
then these rituals would not take us anywhere, but to help.
I mean, it may sound strange to say that, in personal practices, the rituals of Islam will go to hell.
But in fact, that is one who just practices the ritual without grasping the spirit of it, and living in accordance to that spirit is going to help.
So very essential, very essential for us, because the perfect person who has not grasped at first was just going through the motions.
This now is a person who most likely is in a state of what we call nofap. Or hypocrisy
where he does the ritual, but he is in fact a disbeliever. Because his actions, demonstrate it all the time he cheats, he lies he steals, you know, he's doing all these things that he's praying five times a day.
I've never said that he would never cheat nice.
But this doesn't become his way this is not his way of life. This is not the general description of him. You know, he makes mistakes on occasion weaknesses default here or there. So back to the line repentance, but this is not the general description we know so and so is a Muslim is known as a liar
he's a no liar, no cheat.
You know, he brings people over here to work and, and all the people who work for him, you know, complain about it. They signed contracts in, in the Philippines, which would promise them certain salaries. They came here and this man has changed and given them new contracts, said either you accept this or go back home. You know, they already spent, you know, one year salary trying to buy a visa to come here to work. And the man puts this in front of them. What do they do?
And this man is praying five times a day.
What What is that prayer
it is essential for us that we don't fall into that state of hypocrisy that we do understand what is the ease that the law has for us in this religion.
That is find out the core principles of Islam and apply them to our lives so that the ritual that we have that has been outlined for us ordained for you know, will have proper meaning and have effect on us.
also explained that
he wishes that we would understand the Sunnah of those who came before.
You know, in his explaining of different things in the Quran, he wishes for us to, to reflect on those who came before the different nations, the people, their personalities, Pharaoh, nations that are disabled, all these people that are mentioned in the Quran are mentioned, in order for us to understand
how Allah operates
What it is that he wishes for men,
and what happens to men, when he turns away from the wish of Allah.
Allah mentions over and over and use the law and you have to Banco
There my wishes, that things would be made lighter for us.
We find that the religion for example, when we're traveling, the regular prayers that we have to pray,
those that are made up of four units are short and balanced.
And we're allowed to pray the door and often the two midday prayers together. And the night prayer is not good of an issue. We can also join and pray together. This is confessions with a live given us taking into account our
witnesses a difficult difficulties that we may face. At different times though, we're required to pass through Ramadan when we're traveling. We're excused from fasting. So we see constantly throughout the religion, we're allowed, made different concessions and made certain ease for our reducing what is essentially good for our and easy for our profit, reducing it even more, making it even lighter.
So that there is no excuse
for not turning to
ask the question, What do we want?
When our Lord has chosen for our
machete, the correct way?
Sherry, which has been his guidance,
and has been his salvation
guidance in this life.
I know for myself, when I became Muslim, it was one of the things that I really
made it you know, a major difference, a major change for me, the guidance was there, meaning that the confusion and the complexities of choices that I had before a slot
where I'm not sure what I'm doing, why I'm doing Oh, should I really do this? Or Shouldn't I do this, you know, that confusion which existed before was lifted completely.
Because with Islam, I know knew what was the path that I was towards, it became clear for me, so choices became much easier.
And I made a choice based on that understanding, and things didn't go the way I wanted them to. I assumed
that that choice, though I
made it, and I wished from it certain results, that the results that I wish were not best for me, as the law says, you know, you may wish your thing which is harmful for you. And you may dislike a thing which is good for you. A lot of knows that we don't know.
So, this gave me a sense of contentment.
Life, the complexities of life will reduce enormously
like that light in the darkness
refers constantly in the crime to taking the believers from a state of darkness into light.
Now the way is clear
faith and take people from light where the weird way with glare into darkness, the opposite.
You know when people start to call for freedom, you know you have Muslims before coming out of Muslim countries. You know, we're talking about it
freedom in this
women's liberation and you know all these different types of freedoms which people are now used to the effects of, of Western propaganda, etc, in the Muslim world, you find Muslims liberating themselves from Islam.
This is Satan, taking them from guidance from light, which was Islam to darkness.
So if Allah has provided for us the light in the darkness,
what can we wish, we wish the darkness
if Allah has provided us the light, and that's what we should wish for. That's what we should seek. That's what we should want out of this life. And this is why in Surah, Al Fatiha, which we are reciting daily, from 17 times every day,
after a lot of teachers have in that
standard format of prayer he's taught us there, how do we worship God? How do we approach a lot until after thanking Him and praising him, recognizing you know, that He will judge us in this life and recognizing that he is the only one worthy of worship. And he is the only one who will fulfill our needs. After all that he tells us what should we seek is in a
The guide that is the most important thing in this life.
That is the *tier that is the wish of a law firm.
The most important thing for us.
And with this comes salvation.
This is the
most important thing and religious people look at religion when we get salvation out of this religion.
This is what Christianity salvage you accept Jesus as your personal Savior.
God became man sacrificed himself for your sins.
You own the thing sufficient.
Doesn't matter what you do after that,
except that God became a man.
The one who does die
as being who dies. I mean this is to accept that I mean really requires shutting off your brain.
But once you accept that they start with you without wishes.
And when everybody wants to be present, can we shut the brain off and accept the salvation? The easy way,
easy to be a Christian.
Salvation comes with the acceptance of God
as our Lord in all of the sense
doing righteous deeds,
doing what he wishes for us.
Because acceptance of a law means submission about allow will to the will of Allah. That's what acceptance of a law means. It doesn't mean the theoretical understanding.
I'd say to
you know, as philosophers may have
the theoretical proofs which prove that God exists,
this is the part of the process.
Not the necessary part, but it was mainly necessary for some people to be able to philosophically and logically understand why God must exist.
But if we accept that God exists,
for that, to become faith, we have to live in accordance with the will of God, then it becomes
not just knowledge.
So, if Allah provided the Sharia for us,
with it guidance, and salvation,
what then can we wish and work from the fly?
That will make sense
the alarm went on to point out some things from history of Muslims
the wish of Allah we see fulfilled
the example given first example is that it was a battle of
in the pub
mythos element is companions with Medina
you know, all of the various Arabian clan got together for a last ditch attempt to finish him off.
those who are hypocrites
sought to avoid being involved in this battle.
By saying, with regard to it, that a lot of promise and that's the problem was I felt it was a deception.
It was only fooling people, but
their true intentions.
They were actually
of the faith.
That in fact, they were hypocrites.
And he quoted the verse in which a lot of said who can protect men, from our wishes evil for a man or good
who can stop it.
And he gave examples of that Prophet Musa Moses,
when Pharaoh I gathered all the things which should have given him success, and destroyed his people, and the message. However, Allah provided a way,
the opening of the Red Sea and allowing
companions to pass through and destroying Pharaoh.
And he also gave the example of Prophet Ibrahim, Abraham, wherein he destroyed the idols of the people,
in an attempt to let them reflect on what it was they were actually worshiping, and help them to turn back and recognize the God of their true Lord.
However, their response was to find the mounts and to
set him on fire, as a sacrifice in defense of the Lord, the Lord, the false god.
However, again, ally intervene, commanded the fire, to be cool for
And he came out on effective
a science and a miracle, to further convince the people that he was a messenger of God,
that what they were doing was false.
However, you know, in the loss of crime, there are people who in their this belief, this belief has reached so deeply into their heart, that if the dead came out of the grave, and spoke to them, told them
and Allah sit down from the, from the heaven, you know, revelation in a bag,
they wouldn't believe
just would not faze them.
And he also gave the example of profit mooses incident with
a wise man
reveal certain things.
And who travelled with Moosa for a period of time to teach him to enlighten him to certain things of how our law works within them,
how things may appear one way to us on the outside,
maybe evil, or maybe not beneficial, and yet a law takes from it good and benefits.
And the example
was, from the travels
with the knot, when he built
the wall after the had come into a town and people were very disrespectful of
unfriendly to them, they're on their way out of the town.
I came across a wall that was falling down, and he rebuilt it and just did to him.
You know, maybe you can take some money for it, you know, don't do it as a favor. Look how they treated us.
And Hitler went on to explain to him why he did it. He was not doing it as a favor to the people of the town. He was doing it because the law had revealed that below this wall was a treasure, which if the wall fell down, the treasure would have been exposed.
And the treasure belongs to two orphans
who were children of a very right
Just individual who lived in that town. And if the treasure were exposed, and the people of the town would have stolen it, and they wouldn't have benefited from it, so he reset the wall for that purpose.
So, as he emphasized, without a lot of mercy and forgiveness, we would all be locked in life.
it is essential for us to make a distinction, when we talk about the wish, or the will of a law between
what we call his legal wish, and here are the Sharia.
That is, what he wishes for, with regards to religion, how we live our life,
he wishes for us,
but he has given us
a free will, to choose it or not.
At the same time, we have what is what could be called his creational wish, or rather, and konia. That is, he has set into motion,
cause and effect change in this life, that man cannot escape.
You jump up, you fall down, no matter how much you wish, you can't fly.
These are things which are set that we are subject to. We call it the laws of nature, we also see within our lives, there are certain incidents which take place, which are way beyond our control.
We have a wish, we have a desire with whether we are able to fulfill that wish and desire is in accordance with the wish of a lot.
So ultimately, what takes place in this life is in accordance with the wish of a law. So what is better?
Is it better for us to have a wish, which is not that of the wish of the law?
And there is no guarantee that we will be able to fulfill that wish anyway?
Or is it better to have a wish, which is in accordance with the wish of a month.
we will be rewarded for our attempts to fulfill that wish? Whether we succeed or we don't?
This is the question.
And this is what
we should reflect on
making our wish in accordance with the wishes.
Because when it is in accordance, then this life becomes a total reward.
We are blessed in all aspects.
As I said the life of the believer is a wondrous thing.
Because when good comes to him insightful, it doesn't make him you know, oppressive, got a lot of money, now he's got control. So, you know he changes
he becomes corrupt, no is thankful to Allah.
And he gives the right of men in it. And more.
So is blessed by it.
And when the free space in times of difficulty is patient, he knows it's by the will of Allah.
And there is goodness for him
to take whatever messages there is in it. Because no evil befalls us except
as a result of the wrongs that we have done,
will cause certain things to happen to us in our life, not merely as a punishment for the wrongs that we have done,
but as a means of enlightening us,
encouraging us to reflect and to come back to the right. This is his mercy
as we don't receive near punishment, pure punishment for wrong of them in this life.
So, in summary,
it is important for us to decide what we want out of this life
but to be able to make that decision effectively
We have to know who Elias,
what it is the law wants from us.
So that we can intelligently make
decisions and set wishes, hopes and desires,
which will benefit us not only in this life, but also in the next.
also very important for us to seek for understand the spirit of Islam,
the spirit, which is behind the various commandments,
which have been ordained,
which will help us to realize the beauty and the ease which lies in this religion of Allah
make us more appreciative
and more able to live
not based merely on rituals, but a faith which is alive in our hearts
and manifests in our actions.
So, if anybody would like to make any comments
based on the cookbook, concerning the topic,
or they would like to raise any questions.
Well to thinking about it.
Last week, we spoke briefly,
on the first part of the Shahada,
our declaration of faith bearing witness that there is no God, but Allah, what it meant.
And I mentioned that in this part of the football,
or after this clip, or this week, I would speak briefly on something of what is meant by
the second part of the Shahada. Why should
we bear witness that Muhammad
is the Messenger of Allah,
when allies are needed
to make this declaration,
accepting the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, as a messenger of Allah,
this requirement is not one, which is, again,
a piece of knowledge that is written in a book,
but a part of the faith and practice of Islam.
Because it was said in the past, may you tell everyone to focus upon
the messenger has obeyed a lot.
So the acceptance of the messenger
is not just recognizing that he was the Messenger of Allah, but accepting his commandments, whatever he has asked us to do.
We accept this as we accept the commandments that aligns given that we don't separate the two.
That's why the declaration of faith has two parts.
Both have to be there.
You cannot accept a law and reject the messenger
divide. What we know of a law is
what rots by that messenger.
So it is a declaration of faith is actually a declaration of Allegiance.
A commitment to following the commandments of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam throughout our life.
The barn, my bat,
man, aka man who fell to whatever the Prophet has given you take it,
follow it, obey it, and whatever it is prohibited of you.
And he mentioned also that it is not befitting for a believing man or woman. If a law
and His Messenger have decided something for us, that we have any choice there is no choice.
If the will and wish of Allah and His Messenger has been made clear to us, there should be no choice if we are to believe we should remain no choice in our hearts Should we do this or not no finish.
We accept your decision.
And if we disagree on anything, we should take it back to Allah and the messenger.
So, our declaration of faith in the messenger is a
an acceptance or confirmation
there is no separation between
the message and the messenger,
and the Prophet
and the Sunnah.
These are the foundations of Islam.
The Quran and the Sunnah. accepting a lot is
accepted the Prophet is accepting his Sunnah his way.
was the way he is the way.
it is essential for us as Muslims.
Once we have made that commitment
to find out what is
it's not enough for us to say, Well, we've been fine. And we Bumble through life, not knowing what was the sun now what is the way of the summer it is essential as we read from the Koran, we should also read from the sooner
the books of Hadith Sahih Bukhari
Muslim, you know, the authentic collections which contain the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah, the final messenger of Allah, Mohammed Salah, we need to expose ourselves those of us who have the opportunity should read regularly from the center to get a good understanding of that way. And to make sure that we don't just start to this life with customs
and practices of our people were our family did what the people of our area did. We don't know what it's what the Prophet did. Did he approve this or not? What my parents did, I'm just living my life in accordance No.
Because if that were right,
we should have no objection to a person being a Hindu
or a Christian. They're only doing what their parents with their family with their society.
But Allah has given us an intelligence
to be able to reflect on what is going on around us to question and to seek knowledge to find out what is in fact correct.
For us, the way is short and easy, it is the pseudonym. So it is essential for us to find out, to read, to expose ourselves,
to free ourselves, of the slavery of customs and habits
and find that light that guidance which is provided by our law, in the Koran, and to his profit.
So the declaration of faith
in Allah and His messenger is a commitment to obedience
to submission to the way of a lot of messenger.
When we accept that wholeheartedly, then
Islam become a reality.
And I should mention one verse, which
the mom spoke about towards the end of the cookbook, which is
worth reflecting on.
When a lot
with regards to the believers
that we should not take the disbelievers as our close,
we just mentioned that birth is baffling after mentioning all these other things
because our wish and our desire and our one may be
take the disbelievers
as our close, dear friend
because of our job circumstances or how
Under the circumstances or whatever, when what a law wishes for is that we do not do that.
It doesn't mean that you cannot be friendly to disbelievers.
But to take them as our close, dear friends over the believers,
this is deadly.
Deadly. Why? Because the disbelievers
will never be satisfied until we return to disbelief
to whatever they're doing.
In life, the law said in the Koran that the Jews and the Christians will never be satisfied
until you return back to their way.
Although they may appear friendly to you, and but in their heart, they are not happy with you.
They're not happy with you, until you leave give up
that way, give up his love. And because
that is going from light into darkness.
So it is very important for us to have as our close and dear friends
confidants, the one to whom we reveal our innermost desires, etc, has been delivered, these are people who are concerned about your welfare.
They wish for you to remain in the light
their advice for you will be in accordance with
the will and wish of Allah.
So this is what we need to have around it as much as possible to help us because we all have times and weaknesses in this life, we need to have as our close and dear friends, those who will remind us of a law who will remind us of our obligation to Allah.
And if we don't have that,
as I said, the law says
those others will affect the
world will bring us down. It may not be
quick, may be a gradual process.
But as we say, in the West, if you live with a dog, you're going to get up with fleas.
And all those sort of insects, the dog is always stretching himself, you know, you lie down with me, some of them are gonna jump from his body onto the earth, you got to get up scratching.
Your want to be affected
if you're not in a position of affecting that is you're giving Dawa, you have these non Muslims to whom you're friendly, who you treat kindly, because of a lot of commandments, live giving you a duty to carry that message to them. They are a part of a lot of creation, you're there your brothers in mankind
So you carry that message you are affecting, if you are not doing that, then they are affecting.
They're affecting you. There's no neutral, you know, like, it's okay, you know, they're not affecting me, I can't get any message across to them, but they're not having an effect on me. No.
There is no middle point. Either you are affecting them, or they're affecting you.
And the problems themselves, that you will be raised on the Day of Judgment with your friends. So be careful about who you choose as your close friends.
So putting that into context.
The requirement for us with regards to our declaration of faith
is not only to accept a lot our Lord and Mohammed dar salam, as the last messenger of a lot of a lot of mankind, but to live in accordance with that acceptance, to live a life in accordance to the *tier the wish and the will of Allah for man.
From the sisters, do you have no questions from the brothers?
Is it permissible to do it
and three units together or do we have to do it as to at one
we may do it as a unit followed by one unit or to do it as three continuous units.
Either way, it could be three could also be five or seven, nine.
The bottom of both of them did it in other combinations besides three continuous units.
Question with regard to this,
the, because the farmers had also pointed out that it should not resemble the mother of fair, which is where we have the sitting in the second unit before standing for the third, that the way in which was done or should be done with three units is that we don't sit after the second, or we continue and do the sitting in the third.
possible by the outside of Ramadan?
No, it is not. In fact,
perfectly okay to pass on Friday, as long as you're passing
either the day after it, that is Saturday, or you were passing the day before, which was Thursday.
there was a particular date in the month that you regularly
set the program for yourself regularly on that day, and it happens to fall on Friday, but
preferably is the winner on Friday, then, on the Thursday,
before it's for the Saturday after it but to choose Friday as a day apart. Choose it as a day. This is prohibited in Islam. Because Friday is looked at as like a weekly.
And we have such
a brother who's driving here that you know, the practice amongst some Christian Catholics, particularly for African Americans
to fast on Friday,
that we are generally enjoying in Islam to avoid imitating the practices of others Christians, Jews etc.
This is asking for clarification according to the Sunnah
of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam
he would make will do after washing private fire and then have a shower or whistle.
If we're not allowed to touch the private parts after we do that, it means that we must also continue to shower whistle without touching these parts.
When it says not allowed, meaning that if one touch is one spy with part
after having made, then our will do is nullified. It's not to say for him to disinfect your private but if you're using the bathroom or cleaning yourself, of course, it's perfectly perfectly permissible. But the method of washing ourselves the whistle is complete ban
is preferably in the format
of washing our private first, then making wood and allowing the water to come over the whole of our body in order as not to touch our private five after having made to do and then nullify that wouldn't that be amazing?
What it means is that when we watch our private parts, we can do this you know what we what we know how we know based commonly, we so far all thumbs down to the rags and the cetera. We did that watching on the Pirate Party, that whole watching can be included at that point. Then we wash off the soap etc.
You know, washing ourselves down, then we make wooden
after making wood. Then we stand finally under the shower or pour water over ourselves or going to a clean bath of water because actually for us building low power coming from a Western background. We made it tough. We may be in a tub where we fill the tub with water and we take a bath in there actually from Islamic perspective before making a vow for purification. You know the whistle, we shouldn't make a bath and standing water
should be flowing water because you know if you're washing
Find yourself certain impurities where you have to then go and lie down back in these impurities after washing yourself, you're not serving the purpose. So, the water should be flowing water preferably under a shower or pouring the one over oneself
How would you wash off the soap and shampoo from all parts of the body as I mentioned, that could be done initially with the
washing of the private part
question is the whistle the same as a shower not necessary.
They will go from Genova that is where we are, you know, we have
the requirements for having sperm or having an orgasm for women, or coming out of a state of mentors.
This is what those should involve watching the private part and then followed by whoo and everything else. But if it is just a straight the whistle, we're making the watching of the the making of the whoo here in the requirements, you can put some water in your mouth and noise, take a shower. So it could be very similar to a shower. But in the care of the back from Genova where we have been sexually defiled, or a woman coming out of menses than it should include the will do and the washing of the private
wouldn't break the window if the husband or wife saw the husband or wife naked on essentially
or if the doctor sees her mother without clothes, accidentally, no, in no way bricks will do I mean, this is for one things which happened accidentally, according to Islamic law will lead how to account for and in any case, if a person is seen naked,
even if it wasn't by accident, if somebody if a child deliberately came in the bathroom or deliberately picked on you,
this does not affect your womb, this is the things which the state of will do or the state of taharah purification are specifically identified by the public that is passing urine or feces passing when
touching one's private
going to sleep, deep sleep
and also eating camels.
These are the main things are also for sexual intercourse, which requires the work of others requires us to
return person just, you know, your your
bill, you could say in a sort of a state of
between me being awake, where you are resting, but you're aware of what is happening around you, this form does not necessarily would not necessarily break it.
That may happen while you're in that state because sometimes you hear yourself snoring, alright. But now, when you fall into the state of sleep, where you have lost control, somebody wakes up and says you know, wake up, celebrate
your bond. Now, when you have fallen into that state, then it is required of you to make will do afterwards why not because sleep itself breaks your state of purity, but because when you're in a state of sleep,
the chances of you passing wins, without your knowledge are very great.
That is that is the point this is why that sleep will requires of you then to make
because if you pass within that state you would not know.
So, there is a requirement for making
Well, some scholars have held that you know if you are sitting in the upright position, you know, if you even if you fall into deep sleep as long as you're not leaning against anything
in that case, it will not break your data. But as some people have also pointed out
they have observed people sitting in this state
in deep sleep, passing wind and not knowing.
for for this for efficient or requirements of making will do even for things and because of the fact that this may take place without our knowledge, the safer position would be to make will do if we're falling into
that is definitely the safer I feel the more accurate position
know why we have to make without eating chemically?
It is not Haram, the eating of Campbell's meat is not.
the problem was terminated and it's available here we are located.
the camel has a particular status,
which is different from the other permissible animals to us.
The problems are some of them,
allowed us to pray in the places where the sheep, the cows, the goats, where they are held, you know, the parents
were allowed to pray, the compiler.
Can we pray in the places where the sheep are gathered? In a way you can them when you hold them together?
Or corral all the cows? He said, yeah. And they asked what can we pray in the place where the Camelback
and he mentioned that because because
an evil gene shape on
that is linked with the camel.
I mean, how are we going to do we're talking now about it. Because we don't see the gentleman with the capital, or the Powerball festival has informed us and he didn't know except that a lie informed him.
So there is something about the camel, I mean, some people have looked into the nature of the camel. Well, if we look in terms of the animals that were allowed to eat, we see that these generally speaking are these animals.
The cow, sheep, goat.
But those which are carnivorous,
the tiger or the lion were for eating.
And the capital seems to be sort of halfway there. Demo No, for those people, although we might see him he seems to be relatively calm individuals, both people you know, the Bedouins will tell you about the camel very, very, very big.
crack your neck with his with his job. In order you see that to be very careful in handling it.
So Allah knows, there may be something about his nature,
we are protected from, by making.
This is again, this is speculation.
This is in fact, I'm not giving you any software or anything that is matter. I'm just relaying to you what has been said people's perception. But fundamentally, we have been informed this, some people have tried to explain this away you will find in some books. And I've seen this in a region where a story was given that on one occasion, the problem was a fella was sitting with a group of his companions. And one of them were these in Campbell's nice book with while they were sitting there. So in order not to embarrass this person.
He just said, Whoever is eating Campbell's meat should make.
Right so the man got up.
But this is not true, is a false story.
It's commonly related. And I've seen it in Arab news in reference to this question, which was raised in the column, Islamic perspective, and then he mentioned it in there, but it's false.
It's clear there's something different about the camels.
for Jews, the eating of the camel was for him
to go back into the Torah, it is a prohibited.
So some scholars have also suggested that it is sort of in deference to that earlier revelation alive, has made things a little easier for us, we're allowed to eat the camel. But in recognition of its earlier prohibition,
we make Voodoo from eating. This is our opinion, you know.
But the fundamental principle is that the problem is as clearly stated, that for those people who are eating Campbell's meat, it is required for them to make if they had
he said eating can meet
the needs different from the milk.
This is again, you know, beyond your knowledge of architecture, you know what happens outside of your control or kind of your knowledge that you're not held to account for. So you made
about believing that what you ate was okay and
you fill out the acceptable
well you know there are different
old the domesticated horse or
the domesticated donkey I forgotten exactly what it is concerned the horse with some aspect somebody would call with regards to the horse exactly what is the ruling
another domesticated donkey and allowed to eat but the wild documate
just researched and reinforced next week anyway exactly what the ruling is concerning the horse
I mean, it's it's clear there's a clear allowing or disallowing based on whether the animal is domesticated or are not domesticated somebody anyway can research it you know and bring it back Can somebody take responsibility for that next week? Okay.
maybe certain parts you know, I mean certain parts that he is likely to adopt right?
I mean, they commonly they will eat the tail part right? Not the name but part of the body is certainly a very you know, and the frog for example, I've done many other areas of frog syllable division to eat the legs of the frog and not the rest of the body.
No, no, there's no prohibition on clearly the fact you can read it in Bible curry. When the companions were saying, you know, we did the frog that was available in our family
there's no point mission on amphibians.
Frog is a lot of frog is not a carnivorous animal
alligators are pedigree.
Go back to the
Okay, brothers question is that if a person completes his work and is now drying himself off, if he touches his private parts, using a towel, would this be considered touching different parts? No. If there is something between your hand and the private person is not considered to touching which bricks will do but it is skin on skin, you know, if this happens, then your will do is broken.
question concerning Is there any chance women in salon any chance at all of making Salah without wearing socks? Usually extreme heat if the woman's dress is down to her ankle, what about her own house? Well,
the traditions concerned in covering the tops of the feet are very clear. So if a woman
is having a dress and he can make it's going down to the top of her feet,
if he decides to wear it to our ankle, then she should wear something covering the top.
So whether it is in her own home, or whether it is you know in a massive the topic of refeeds you know are considered a part of our or parts of the body which should be covered in prayer as well as those that have prayer. If he is outside of prayer. She's in the presence of people who she may marry inside her home if you were
you know anything, even if you are miniskirts in this urban you know it's not hard. But if he is in the presence of people, you know, other males and females, males that she would marry then she should cover itself to the top.
animals which eat fish?
Like very nice.
Yeah, these are carnivorous animals coming with
the carnivorous meaning that it's eating you know, because in Arabic the term
For the flesh of the fish is the same as the term for the flesh of land animals.
Know the ruling concerning the picture above is asking, what about the fish that eat other fish? Well, the ruling concerning the fish or animals of the sea, animals have to live their lives all their lives in the sea is different from the ruling concerning land animals completely different. Because we're not allowed to eat an animal on the land which dies on itself. You see, cow falls down guys, you can't take him and cooking with aliens is haram. But if you find a fish floating on top of the water you can eat.
In all of the animals with diet and feed animals on this huge dime, the seeds are edible, you're allowed to eat them
alive animals, you must sacrifice the animal you must cut the neck, let the blood flow. But you're not required to cut the neck, you know, the neck of a fish, you know, before eating, cooking. You know, it's a whole different set of rulings concerning the fish deficient diet themselves after you caught them, pull them out of the water and they die of themselves, you come and eat them. So and this is based on the fact that some companions came to him and asked him whether it was allowable for them to make whoodle from seawater.
You know, because they traveled, they were fishermen who travel on the sea, they asked whether it was permissible for them to to make withdrawal from seawater because seawater seems to be different in quality than freshwater, it makes it feel sticky, and it's salty, and all these things. So he replied to them, that not only can they make withdrawal from seawater, but that the seawater being pure, it actually makes even the the dead, that diet is pure, the animals of the sea and the dead was dying, it's all pure. So all of the rulings concerning the land animals are not applicable to these sea animals. This is a special category of itself
was mentioning narration mentioned in a Muslim with some of the companions that come across
a large fish, whether it was a whale or not, we're not certain, but it was very large fish which was on the shore.
And they was dead, obviously on the seashore. They took parts of it and brought them back with them, told us about it and gave him some money.
Okay, there are no other questions.
Question of nudity between a husband and wife.
Fundamentally, there is no prohibition.
You know, between the man and his wife, there is no prohibition, there are some narration which are weak, not authentic, you know,
which I know in the Hanafi school, they're very strict about and in fact, so much so that people commonly will take bags with clothes on.
You know, I know women they have a special bathing costume which they use for taking a shower, they will not take off all their clothes to take a bath.
But this is actually based on traditions which are not authentic, and
it is allowable for a man to be naked in the presence of his wife
and vice versa.
But, in general, let me just add this to just be walking around the house, you know, in a state of nudity, Islam is this is considered very not appropriate. You know,
it's not really appropriate that you know, one as the norm walking around one's house was should have some clothing on
the question of making will do in a state of nudity, yes, it is permissible.
Is there a parallel
to the condition
Double Muslims today?
Well, I think this may be a big, big discussion.
I was gonna say briefly though, that
in the past, there have been times when the Muslim woman has come under attack, various segments of the home and owned by the whole have not come to their aid.
sections of the oma were destroyed, as in the case of
Syria, Turkey, etc during the time of Qatar.
And during the periods of colonialization, of colonization of the British European powers in the world, we have sections of the omo are chopped off
without the rest of them are coming to their head. And Russia, the southern Russian senses were engulfed by the Russian
Republic, and the oma virtually did not come to the head. So there were times in the past where
circumstances similar to these, you know, have occurred. And it is very important for us I think what our brother probably was pointing out that we should be looking at our past history tries to learn lessons from them so that we don't repeat the mistakes, of loads in the past.
That's when the oma is under attack. We should rise to a new set of facts, we should
revive the spirit of jihad in defense of Islam and
the use of translation of the Quran.
We know there's many mistakes and it's
There are many mistakes many mistakes mostly in the commentary in the main text of the Quran, basically, very few mistakes. So the main mistakes are in the commentary is his views you know, as he explained in the very beginning of the book, if you read carefully
