Welcome him al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah and Avi Hill Karim Allah He follows Allah to Adam with tasleem rubbish roughly is on the way as Sidley, Emily, Emily Sonia, Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters Selim are Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
I hope that everyone is doing well in sha Allah to Allah tonight is the what night is it day, which which Jews of the Quran are we doing that's a simple way of figuring out which night of tarawih it is. So we are doing the 10th Joseph Quran, which means tonight is the 10th night of Ramadan. And so exactly at this time tomorrow, we would have pretty much completed one third of this month of Ramadan, which means to more of what we just went through, and the month is gone.
So we ask Allah Subhana was added to make us from amongst those who benefit and maximize from this month and from those who attain complete and full forgiveness throughout this entire month of Ramadan. I will try my best to finish a little bit earlier today in sha Allah to Allah to take some more of the questions. I know that that's been a struggle, and it always will be a struggle, I'll tell you that from now, it always will be a struggle, because in one hour to cover one jewess and still have some time for q&a, it's gonna be really difficult. So please forgive me with regards to that. But you know, it is it just is the way it is. And usually usually when I'm teaching this in
the mustard, we usually don't really have a q&a session for too long, because after Moga I'm usually in the mustard until a shadow and people will just come and ask those questions anyways. However, we'll jump right into it. And today we are continuing with soda, and fun. We'll start with verse number from 42 until about verse number 4546, even 48 a lot, some headwinds added here showing us remember sort of two and 30 is the suta that discusses how to divide the wealth or the booty, the spoils of the war. So after a battle is completed, whoever lost the battle, they lose their, you know, their wealth and provisions, it's around there. And so the winner will then go and take
whatever wealth belongs to them. And we see that this is, you know, referring to the Battle of brothers in particular over here, the Battle of Baba, you know, took place in a place known as Baba, for those of you who have never been there in sha Allah, we get to go farm a lot together sometime soon, hopefully. And hopefully, we take you up to a budget, and you get to see budget where it is in Scotland where the Shahada are those who you know, lost their lives, their or, you know, a loss of habitat accepted them to be from amongst those who, you know, would not return to their families throughout the month of Ramadan, and also throughout that battle, or at the end of that battle.
And now, the place but that is a beautiful area. So when you when you look at it, you know, there's there's these mountains, three mountains, and one of them is just covered in sand. So it's just a really, really beautiful area, you know, to to visit, but it also is a reminder of the area and the place where the very first battle took place after the hedge of of the profits a little longer, and he will sell them. So there's a lot of history there. It's a place where the angels came down. So there were hundreds over 1000 angels around the Sahaba of the Aloha and helping them in that battle. We see that a loss of Henry Tana accepted the death of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
we also see, you know, pertaining to the battle or, you know, related to the battle, how this habit of the longer No, they sacrificed a lot for the Battle of bodom. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, you know, did not let the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know the full amount of machete comb that we're going to be, you know, against them throughout that battle. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought it was going to be a lot less and it ended up being a lot more. And that's why the angels were there. And there's a very interesting thing that we're going to see today in sha Allah to Allah with regards to the paddle, but also the angels that were sent and the reaction of shape on
in verse number 44.
a loss of Hamlet and it shows us here
and I'll just go through the English to try and save some time. So we finish up, you know, a little bit earlier to try and take some q&a. Allah Subhana Allah says, Then when your armies met, along, made them appear as few in your eyes and made you appear as few in theirs. So Allah may establish what he had destined a must have had with Adam made it seem that there were less but there were more to the Muslims, but he also made it seem like there were less to make them feel as though Oh, we got this everything's fine. It's under control
Sorry, and to Allah, all matters will be returned for judgment. And then a loss of haddaway data says, Yeah, you are living in an omen, or believers when you face an enemy stand firm. And remember Allah often, so you may triumph. Now I found this interesting look, the, this the solar that we're going through right now and the next solar solar October,
you'll notice how these two have links to battles that took place. And there's a lot of very straightforward versus very stern is that a lot of Henry Tana revealed messages to the Prophet sallallahu. And he was sending messages to the Muslims messages to the machete Kuhn as well as to how it was handled, which Allah wants things to be, as in we are to worship Him. And anyone who doesn't abide by that, then they are getting on the bad side of a loss of Hannah Montana, right? They are not in his good books. And so here a loss of Hannah Montana shows us all believers when you face an enemy. Now, of course, this was pertaining to the Battle of Baba, and what was taking place
during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. However,
at our time, I wouldn't like to say enemy, but those who disagree with Islam, and those who go against Islam, and those who may be at times we make, we may consider them to be islamophobes people who make Islam seem really bad, and lots of headwinds, and it reminds us to stand firm. Don't let people you know, take you away from Islam. Stand firm upon Islam, don't you know lose the values of Islam that you have within you don't lose the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you already have been so accustomed to, rather a lesson kind of mentality showing us stand for, don't leave it Don't leave what Allah has blessed you with, don't leave with, with a you know,
feeling sad. And what some had we've had is showing us here the importance of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala often, and that remembrance of Allah is what grants us the strength and that strength is what allows us to stand firm. And by standing firm, we are actually affirming and showing others what we truly believe in and how important it is to us that we are not going to let go of our belief. Okay.
So that was something really interesting that I thought I would, you know, share their verse number 48 with Xena Houma, shavon Allah so can we add as then says, and remember when shavon made their evil deeds appealing to them? So shapen is now here on the battlefield, the Battle of but that is taking place, the mushy corner there, and you know, he is trying to encourage the machete Kuhn to go against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so Allah says, and when she thought made their deeds, appealing to them their evil deeds, and said, no one can overcome you today. Right, making them feel like you got this. And remember Allah Subhana data made it seem like the numbers were less
than they actually were. So they were feeling confident in themselves. No one can overcome you today. And shake on says to the mushy Cohen, he says, I am surely by your sight. Right? So he's encouraging making them feel okay, we've got this we're good, everything's gonna be fine. Don't worry. Look at them. They're so small and number, everything is under control. We are going to win. Then Shaban says,
Sorry, Allah Subhana. Allah shows us how shavon You know, he says he's by their side. But when the two forces faced off Allah Subhana Allah says when the two forces faced off, he became cowardly. Right, he was from those who were cowards. And he said, Siobhan Nell says, I have absolutely nothing to do with you. Why? Because he sees what's around him. He then says that, he says, I certainly see what you do not see.
Right. I certainly see what you do not see what color anybody woman come in the auto mela tone in me a half a law. He then says, I fear a law. Now that's really interesting, my brothers and sisters because shavon is saying that he fears a lot. But shavon forces us to go against a law all the time. And so actually, I shouldn't say he forces us but he whispers to us and he his whispers are strong right? But a loss of handle with a hand and makes it such that even shape on it affirms that Allah subhanho wa Taala is in control. And when he sees the angels around him he sees on the battlefield the angels are in support of the Muslims.
He says in the bedroom income in the auto mela Tyrone, I see what you can't see in the fall for law. He's making it known a law. You know, I fear you I see what's happening. I'm out of here, I'm done. And he flees, he leaves them and then a loss of hand which shows us here. He says, I truly fear Allah for Allah is Severe in punishment.
Light is severe and punishment We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to save us and protect us from any kind of hardship, and to save and protect us from his punishment, both in this life as well as in the hereafter. I mean,
we move on, let's go to verse number 61 in sha Allah tada verse number 61, verse number 61, at the bottom of the page, a loss of habitat, it says, What in general is send me
whatever killer Allah wa in the war Saudi Arabia and even if the enemy is inclined towards peace, make peace with them, and put your trust in Allah. Indeed, he alone is all hearing, all knowing. So my brothers and sisters, we spoke
with him in a show while I'm at my gym.
That's right on trying to get me to leave the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, but we say Are we living in a shaitan? about going beyond, so that we are asking the love we seek refuge in You from the cursory pond, he's trying to weaken us. He's trying to take us away from you remember this, but we will not give in. Right? And so here are lots of headway that is showing us when the enemy is inclined towards peace. And when I'm talking about shavon, here, she talks about inclined towards peace, right? We're talking about when someone who usually goes against the Muslim Ummah, someone who is going to maybe even harm the Muslims, if they now come around, and they feel content
with Islam, and they approach the Muslims and they're trying to make peace, Allah Subhana Allah says, Then make peace with them. Right? What? What Killa Allah, He then says, and put your trust in a law that's important to my brothers and sisters, because at times, we feel no, there's no way, right, there's no way that we can accept someone else. And I remember using this example, once.
You know, just think of it, I won't use names, I want you to think of someone that you would consider to be an oppressor or someone who's bad, or someone who treats people unjustly, someone who sometimes may harm others and pretend like they don't. It could be the leader of a country, it could be someone who, you know, I don't know, leads an army or does something that you know, is, is hurtful towards others that just want you to think of that person in your mind. Now, if that person was to walk into the masjid, while you are there, you're at the masjid. And that person walks in.
And it could be someone who's like, you know, completely creating chaos and destruction on this earth. And they walk into your mustard, your local mustard, and you see them walking in.
How would you feel? How would you react? What would you do? What would you say? Right? How would you behave? What do you say to the people around you? would you approach that person? They come up to you and they say, my brother, my sister? And you're like, excuse me, brother, sister. Who do you think you are? Right? You think you're gonna come in here and talk to talk to us like we're your brother and sister with all the things that you're doing around the world, all the destruction that you're causing all the people that you're hurting, right, all the homes that you're destroying all of the lives that you're taking, you're going to come in here and call us your brother, your sister,
excuse us? Allah subhana wa tada says, make peace with them. What What can
you remember the story of Hint, Hint has been talked about the Allahu Allah know we say about the a woman. But before we didn't use to say about the alumni on her right, as in this habit of the longer I know, not us during our time, we know that she embraces them. But when we saw what she did in the early years, the early stages of Islam, it was harsh, it was terrible. It was bad. She went against the prophets of Allah where I think he was some of them because of what happened to her relatives on the battlefield who chose to go and join the battle. But then again, you know, she took that stance against the prophets along with some of them, she hired last she to take the spear and throw the
spear and to you know, take the life of hands up. Don't be a lover and the relative of the profits on the wall I think he was sending them.
And what did she do afterwards, she went over and she cut open the chest of Hamza on the lower end and took out his liver and cut his ears off and made it into a necklace and mutilated the body of him settled the lover and that was before Islam. But after Islam, what happens that
Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam shows us in that incident that when she comes to the profits of the woman, I needed something, she has her cloak drawn over her. And she enters and they don't know because the profits on the longer end of usnm he had made a draw against her. He was really upset that she was harming the Muslim Ummah so badly.
And then she enters, where the profits on the long run la usnm is
that she wants to, or she states that she wants to testify in the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala ad.
And the Prophet sent along rather usnm asks her to reveal herself. Who are you reveal your identity, right, reveal your identity, who are you?
And she says, Hynde
what is the response of the Prophet? salallahu alayhi wasallam is it? Get out of here? What are you doing? How do you come in here? How dare you he doesn't pull out his sword, the Sahaba of the law. They don't go crazy and start reacting. The prophets in the long run. He was someone with a heavy heart because he's hurt. He's hurt. It hurts. Hynde is coming in. And now she wants to embrace Islam. What does the Prophet sallallahu wasallam do? He says model had been behind? Welcome. And he welcomes her into Islam. A lot of
that in itself gives me goosebumps, to start with.
gives you goosebumps. It makes you feel weird. It makes you feel like some kind of law. how merciful is Allah subhanho wa Taala had our Creator who someone who went against Islam who literally hired people to do you know, do such evil things that went against the values of war, right? There were certain things that they used to live by, they would agree to right. And she went against that she went and she mutilated the body of someone who already had passed away.
And then the prophets of Allah Heather usnm welcomes her. So here was Henry Tanis showing us. He says what what can I trust a la hynd are the lover Anna helped Islam so much after she became Muslim, because she felt I need to. I need to repay Allah Subhana data for all that I've done. I need to fulfill, you know, the evils that I've done by replacing them
with good deeds. And so the prophets on the longer end in usnm welcomes her and she lives by the actions of the Muslims she lives according to Islam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says indeed He alone is all hearing all knowing sometimes we think we know things we don't Allah subhana wa tada knows more. And he is all hearing although he knows better than we do. We move on to verse number 73. Okay, verse number 73. If Muslims don't unite, then there's a lesson in it for us. I must have handled it and it says here when leadin akufo bara boom
Sr, Li with ESA can be also can with an SS as for the disbelievers, they are guardians of one another. So they're united they look after each other.
And unless you as in the believers, unless you act likewise, you are united, you will protect each other you will defend one another. He says Allah subhanho wa Taala says And unless you act likewise, there will be great oppression and corruption in the land. Now this shows us a number of things first of all, why we're doing the corruption on earth if the Muslims are not united as long as there's Muslims and they're disunited, it shouldn't make a difference. No, it does. Because in order for us to spread the message of goodness we need to be on the same page
you cannot have and this is a problem that we see in our communities right not community communities in our you know Muslim around the world in different cities. You'll notice that some massages are not united with other massage it and so because there's always this poll no we know better. No, I know better. No, you know better now. Don't tell us what to do. And we're gonna have Ramadan starting on
They were going to start on that they were getting, like we're all living in the same city. We're all working together, we're all trying to get closer to Allah, we all want to see communism forgiveness. We all like there's such a common goal at hand. But we are not working together at it. It destroys us. And because it destroys us, what happens is from the people who understand goodness, and the importance of goodness, if they can't be good amongst themselves, then how do you expect people who don't understand what goodness is? Who don't understand what purity is people who think that you know, just getting drunk and living life and getting high and getting stoned and doing
things? You know, whatever we want to give into our desires, that's life. Enjoy it, man. Just live as you want be free? No, because it's harmful to others. How many times we see someone who's drunk driving having an accident, killing others? How many times do we see someone who's drunk abusing their family members at home? How many times do we see someone who you know is drunk on the streets and people are making videos about them and laughing at them laughing at them on the streets? Some have a mom. You know, this happens so often. It's so common around the world, people lose their values as human beings and if the Muslims who understand the importance of these values are not
going to be united, then it is our destruction. And it is corruption on earth because we are not able to come together for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa to add, so there will be great oppression. People will begin to oppress others and leaders will begin to oppress the their people. And the corruption will spread so far because the Muslim Ummah will say I You don't know what you're talking about. And you don't know right? That's where my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah will not only create corruption on Earth, but he will create destruction between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna does not need us. We need a lot as images.
Let's enter the next Surah Surah October This is the soul that does not start with the bus mela. Okay. If you are going to begin reciting it for example, you finish the last sutra, sutra
and fall and then you move on to Surah tober. You are not going to say Bismillah before reciting it you will pause and you will begin
to mean Allah you are a Sunni he led the
machine at some of the scholars say that this is a continuation of sorbitol and fell because the context of what is being discussed does carry over okay. However, it's a school separate on its own it does not start with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim because the ads are harsh. The I enter strict right though and mercy of Allah subhanho wa and to add it that's mentioned elsewhere over here a lot strict Eastern, pay attention live properly, do what you're supposed to do, or else Or else and so there is no best meta. It's straight bottom la mina la he was he nevertheless he doesn't mean an emotion EP in fancy roofing above me. I'm buried. I showed him earlier.
CD. So Allah subhanaw taala begins with Sora. There's a lot that is mentioned here. And this is what is heavy. I've actually explained this in the tafsir quite some time ago and I think the lectures are available on
online somewhere. Okay. However,
we can't go through all of this but we will skip to verse number. So in verse number one to six, actually, no, we'll go to verse number 17 and verse number 17.
In verse number 17, Allah subhana wa tada says mckennitt and mushy kena ner Moodle messaggi de la he shahina Allah and forcing him bill Kufa Allah Subhana Allah is pointing out to us as Muslims. Hey, wake up. Right? It's stern sort of Toba is like stirring the messages are Stern, right? Allah Subhana Allah says, it is not for the polytheists for the mushy Koon it is not for them to maintain the mosques of Allah while they openly profess disbelief.
So if those who disbelieve in Allah subhanho wa Taala always
In the state that right and we're not talking about remember, here was a pen with that is talking about the machine.
Okay? Those who worship other than Allah subhana wa went to Hana. Remember here my brothers and sisters, the houses of a loss of Hannah with Hannah are for a month to be worshipped in. Okay. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says it is not for the polytheist to maintain the mosques of Allah well they openly profess disbelief, their deeds are void and they will be in the fire forever. He then says in the era modal message, email de la human
Tell me a
daddy in the mosques of a law should only be maintained by those who believe in a law and the last day and they established prayer and they pay their zeca and they fear none but Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, it is right to hope that they will be among the truly are the rightly guided. So the massages are supposed to be maintained by who my brothers and sisters by us, we are supposed to maintain the massage it and Alhamdulillah The good thing about software is we can easily pull this up anytime we want. We can easily maintain our mustard by donating to econo milton.com maintain the mustard, right? That's my shameless plug. It's not going to me, it's going to the mustard right? So
I'm encouraging that we maintain our massages that we give for the sake of Allah Subhana which he says to us go to verse number 17. In October, Allah Subhana Allah says it is not for the polytheist to maintain the mosque. So Allah, we don't need the money of others. We don't need the time of others. We don't need the wealth of others. We don't need the strength of others. We don't need the energy of others, right? We say the blood sweat and tears. We don't need that from others. It is us who maintain the massages, and this is more so pertaining to the house of a lot in Mecca. Right? I must have that hat on. And we'll see why Allah subhana wa tada says in verse number 19, do you as in
the pagans, consider providing the pilgrims with water and maintaining the sacred mosque as equal to believing in a lot in the last day and struggling in the cause of the loss of Han with Allah. So what lots of Hanrahan is saying to those who should the cone of luck, the price
that is believed? He says, A john to Sequoia till hedge, we're in our hotel industry, they'll come in, I'm gonna be lucky when you're feeling rejected. ifisa be Linda, right?
He says, you know, do you think that simply serving water to those who come for Hajj? No, we remember the correlation of Mecca. They took it very seriously. When people were coming to Mecca when people were going to worship Allah subhana wa Santa performed that pilgrimage there and maybe come and do some trade and business and also worship their idols, they took it seriously. And they used to go and give zum zum. To the people that came, they were not listening. But they still used to give some of them and they used to welcome them to Mecca welcome them to the album because the album was a sacred place for them as well. They used to perform the Love Around the carrabba
themselves during the day the menus to perform it and they used to perform it naked. And the women would go and perform it at night so that you know the Knights conceals their you know, their image. And so it was of Henry to enter showing us here, hey, Muslims, the massage it is a place the mustard is a place that you worship a lot and only a law and you have the responsibility of maintaining the house of a Muslim Hannah who attended as a believer. So don't let go of that. affirm yourself upon Islam and give for Allah subhanho wa Taala at your time, not just your money, your time, your energy, your wealth, your strength, you know, be in the house of a loss of Hannah Montana, of course
when it's open and when we're able to actually do that. Right. Then Allah Subhana Medina says
to the motion one, look, what you do is not equal to those who believe in a lot, you know, serving the serving Zamzam to people who come and just looking after the house and lots of families and it's not equal. Okay, those who believe in Allah, they may not serve, right, they may not have that position of authority, because remember, only the, you know, the highest or most noble of those of Mecca were the ones who had authority. And so, you know, they would serve and be the ones who would take that too.
credit for it. So what loss of habitat is as you're not better than those who worship a loss of habitat, they may be simple. They may not have as much as you. They may have been stripped of their honor. They may have been stripped of their businesses, they may have been stripped of their freedom. They may have been stripped of their food and their water and their clothing and their homes, but they are still better than you. Now that's like a slap in the face to the place right. Then the loss of Henry's ad it says they are not equal in a lost sight. Right. Will not lay the record with what he mean. He then says and a lot does not guide the wrongdoing people. And Nadine
ermine words in which I had roofie Sabina he allowed him to see him
tender in the law, what without he can modify his own. Now remember, my brothers and sisters, sacrificing for the sake of Allah doesn't mean you know, going out of your way from the comforts that you have in your home. It does. But it also means sacrificing for the sake of Allah right now, while you're fasting. You're sitting there, you're doing nothing, but you're sacrificing the food and the drink. you're sacrificing, you know, joking around and backbiting and having fun and chilling and just letting loose and being free. you're sacrificing all of that from the comfort of your home for a loss of Hannibal.
You believe right? And of course, muscle pain without dimensions those who migrated as well. Right? they migrate it for the sake of a muscle and want to have we move on verse number 23 of Sula, Toba.
A loss of hideaways Island now is going to show us something related to friends who are our friends.
And I don't just mean friends by mean, who are the close people to us? Who are the people who we keep closest to us. Most of us will say it's family. But is it really family? I guess family really the closest to us. Here was a pen with Anna says, Yeah, you
landed definitely in
In his terrible coup for Iran and in
He can remove body
language and it says all believers, do you Sorry, do not take your parents and siblings as trusted allies, if they choose disbelief over belief.
Of course, this has to do primarily with what happened and what took place in Makkah. And between the Muslims and the Muslims, of the time of the Sahaba of the love of my own home. However, at the same time, we acknowledge that those from amongst us as family, there will be times if they disbelieve in Allah Subhana Allah to have their there will be times that they disagree with you, even though your family, you might look at the time of agendas. And I've seen this a lot because I do chaplaincy in the hospital. And I do with families when someone passed away. You know, they usually come they ask you, you know, for whatever questions they have, you know, we see a lot of the
time that there is disunity and disagreement amongst the family members. And common very common. I'm going to say this live being broadcasted. Right, very, very common issue that we have, especially in Pakistani families, right. And my father is Pakistani. So I've seen this growing up, not in our family, but in you know, friends of ours, because we didn't really have any other family here in Canada. So we didn't have these issues. But I seen it around and other people's families. And so I've had a lot you know, you have lend that your parents or grandparents bought for you and they left for you. And as they pass away, they leave it behind, right, they leave that lens behind.
What we see happening is siblings fighting over that lens to the point that they become enemies of each other. And they don't even talk to each other anymore, overland over pieces of land. And they say no, I have to build my house. Their dad said Mom said we have to build our house. And we will go back and live there and retire there. No, you won't. Most of us will not leave the countries we're living in and go live back home. Once again, that probably won't happen, right? Because once you get used to the lifestyle in the country you're living in once you get used to the lifestyle or the social services that are being provided in the countries that you reside in. You don't think it's
not even a you know, a thought in your mind like oh, I'm going to go back there. No way. Most people are not going to do that. Unless they're still living there and they come spend some months here and then they go back. So the point here, my brothers and sisters is why are you Why go through these problems.
And issues that people have, why make it a point in people's lives to fight and argue over land, over the possession of land. And there's a brother some analog lives very close to me. You know what, he did something amazing. I don't know if it was the right thing for him to do. But he felt this was the right thing for him. He said, I gave up all the land that our parents left for us, and gave them to our siblings. He was in charge he was responsible to look after. And he said, because I'm in charge and responsible, anything that I take, that's extra, or if I take what is mine, what was left for me, and it's a bigger piece of land, for example, then my siblings will argue with me
and say, Oh, you're just taking that for yourself, because you were put in charge and you're responsible. So kind of a lot. He gave it all to his siblings, all to their relatives. He said, You guys take it, I don't need it. I'm here. I'm living here. I'm good. I don't need it.
And so how the law you know, it's amazing. He has a good relationship with his siblings, you know, they go back and forth, they travel together, they enjoy their time, but have the love. He said there was tension for a couple of years, because of the division of the wealth, but then it went away. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us here now, if that's the case with us, as Muslims that we're going to argue overland, what about our siblings that are not Muslim? What about our sometimes parents or even children that are not Muslim? They will say, Oh, janessa forget that. Look, no, we're just going to bury it this way. Oh, no, I want to have this, I want to have a marriage done a
certain way. Right? I want to have my children, someone made a Muslim might say, you know what, our children are going to be baptized. What? Why are your children going to be baptized? That's a completely different faith. Right? Why? And so we see my brothers and sisters.
You know, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us
there is something not sometimes, but there is something that is thicker than blood, we know we say, you know, family, we have a blood connection, blood relation. But there's something that's thicker than blood.
Sorry, we say Blood is thicker than water, right? That's the same as trying to think of what it was blood is thicker than water, as in family sticks together, right? We are closer to one another. But there's something that's different that's thicker than that. And that is the Shahada
either in the law, what should I do under Mohammed and how to do what I solo?
That's amazing. Why? Because what Allah Subhana Allah wants is what we will do.
It's not about what I want, I may want to perform janazah for all of my relatives, even the non Muslim ones, but I'm not allowed to do that. Because that's not the way of Allah Subhana, which I had. I may want, you know, to live my life a certain way. That's not for me to do that. Because a loss of handling data is not legislated for us to do that. It's not right. And so my brothers and sisters, we see here, the importance of understanding that the laws of a law are more valuable and more precious than the relationships that we have with our family. That doesn't mean that we disregard it. A lot doesn't tell us to disregard our family. But he's just making it clear to us
that those who have a vested interest in us a better interest in our future are those who believe in Allah subhana wa tan, not those who disbelief Okay, let me ask Allah subhana wa tada to make easy for every single one of us. He then says, will encounter now from what if one from what is logical Marashi enough to come and learn more and where the common were unwell. what I'm wondering is
time to move on. But he Jonathan tuck Shona. Okay.
What's the Jonathan toughsonic Asada? Well, masakan Bona in a law, I have been in a local minima. What I saw he was he had in feasibility for cannabis who had to be American Emily along with a common facet.
Let's move on to verse number. Because I want to stop for q&a. Like I said,
Let's go to verse number 60. Okay, I wasn't going to take 40 but we're going to skip it we'll go to 60 because the context there is important for us to understand. Verse number 16 is those who we can give our zeca to so that Zakat recipients and It better not pause now I need my Instagram on now because I know that some people have been asking about Zika so we need you to be here with us. And Siobhan Tad Okay, good. We're glad that you're back on Instagram. So the Zakat recipients is what we're going to talk about now. Lots of handling data says in verse number 60 of setup
in the Masada platoon in fukada, evil Misaki will Armenian Irelia. One more lsvt boo boo, was it licchavi? Well, what do you mean? Was he Sabina la urbanest Seville, very about Amina LA, or longer. And even Hakeem, these are the eight carat the eight categories of people that are eligible to receive Zakah. And I know many Muslims pay there's a catheter up this month. So it's important for us to try to understand this. So here, almost random data begins and says
that these other parts, so the part here and this is referred to as zecca. What How do we know that? Why do we know this? Through the actions and examples of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught us that this is pertaining to zecca. So this account can be given to these eight categories of people who are they enfocado, the poor and the needy. What is the difference between the two, it's very simple. Someone who is poor is someone who does not have period. Like they don't have clothing, they don't have food, they don't have shelter they don't have. So they are for someone who is needy could be someone like you and I, right, someone watching right now could be needy, I could
be needy, you don't know, right. But we're living the point there's we're living in the comfort of our home.
But we are still in need. Because you might not have the food to put on the table, you might not have the wealth that you need to pay your rent or your house payments, you may not have a motive transportation may not have enough to look after your children, right, maybe your child needs some dental work and you don't have that you're in need. Now I'm not talking about living luxury, and then saying I want more, there's a difference between want and need my brothers and sisters. And that needs to be very clear, you need to understand that difference. So the poor are those who do not have the needy are people who may still be in need. You might see someone who has a loan,
they're in need of paying off this loan, if you want to help them out and you see that they're struggling, help them to pay the loan and cost freedom of that because the person with a loan is a person who will not enter genda until that loan is taken care of. And so kind of I remember I was with your mom and
you are having a whole lot.
Themis quality, originally from Burma
was the Imam of mustard, the neverwet. He was our teacher. He taught us to see it back. When we were studying in Medina. And I walked to his car one day we were studying these ads. And he was talking about the Medina, the person who has a dame, someone who, you know owes money, someone who has a loan who owes money. And he was saying even someone who owes 25, Helena 25 halala. At that time, we don't really use it in Saudi anymore. There's basically 25 cents. He says the person who owes 25 cents and leaves this world, still owing 25 cents will not enter agenda except with the permission of Allah subhana wa tan as in if Allah forgives them of it, or their family members pay off that
loan on their behalf. And I walked to the car with him. He was walking to his car, and it was like shift case. Any case shuksan laying at Hulu agenda,
wearing the whole thing
when they used to think the NBN would then come so a reshoot in halala Another use case, in case he also had with Adam Rama Rahim
Who? Me I'm Korean Mateen Kaif. And somehow I remember asking him like, how is it handled? I said that I was thinking I was walking in the footsteps. I was thinking like some kind of law shift. How is it that someone is they leave this world and they have 25 cents of the day of a loan that they didn't pay off its debt? How is it that they will enter agenda? I'm like, sure, how can you say that Allah is merciful. He's a man he's, he's, you know, he's, he's able, he's got the strength. He's got the power, he can forgive us? Allah Subhana. Allah knows our situation is like, yes. But Allah wants us to make sure that we fix our situation. He doesn't want us to incur debt. He doesn't want us to
be able to he doesn't want us to be in positions where we're not able to get ourselves out of the debt. He doesn't want us to live lives with debt. He wants us to help people who have debt. Sounds like shiffman 25 cents.
I was like 25 cents JFK, like 25 cents. I don't know. Maybe when I was a kid, I borrowed 25 cents from my brother and didn't pay him back. I don't know. Right? And so less than 10 of what we asked him to have mercy upon us. So from the people who are eligible to receive zakat.
Okay, we'll finish up in three minutes in sha Allah are the poor, the needy, those who are employed
administer it. So for example, if there is an organization or people who collect zeca, and distribute it, and it is their job, their profession, or they dedicate their time to it, they can be paid to do that. And also kind of Montana says it. So stop arguing my brothers and sisters with organizations, yes, if they take too much, that's a different story, if they're taking a small amount, and their overhead cost is so small, so my youth, my brothers and sisters, there's nothing wrong with that Allah has allowed it for those. Why because they are dedicating their time and their energy for us to be able for us to fulfill this important pillar of Islam. They're encouraging us to
calculate our zip code, they are encouraging us in the proper way of calculating Zika. They're encouraging us to give the proper amount in Zika. And to give it in the proper ways to the proper people who are deserving of it, then the loss of handling data allows them to also be deserving of some of it in order to cover the costs to maintain themselves to look after themselves, their family and so on. Because they're dedicating themselves to helping the Muslim Ummah, uphold and upkeep one of the pillars of Islam, which is so important that it affects all of society. The next category is for those whose hearts are attracted to the faith, right? Those who are inclined towards the deen,
right, you can help people out and you'll notice this have had a lot they will be, you know, inclined towards the mean, this doesn't mean buying people over right? It just means helping those who are good, who have good thoughts who have good, you know, morals and values and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide everyone, I mean,
also for freeing slaves, now, we may not have slaves around our time, but for those who are, you know, maybe going through difficulty financial difficulty, they're trapped, right, we can free them in whatever way that we can for those in debt, so his account can be used to pay off the debt of others. If someone has a debt we can use account for that person to get them out of debt for a lost cause as well right? For example, in North America, we see this question being asked all the time, can we build a massage with Zika the origin of it is Nope. Right? The origin is no we cannot use the cat for that. However, that is looking at Medina Tijuana what muckety muck up about that, you know,
Muslim majority countries where even the government is giving wealth right to maintain the massage and build the massage in North America we have nothing right so some of the scholars have allowed and you'll see this in you know, massages being announced sometimes that there's a kind of money can go towards maintaining the massage it and that's something that's important especially now at this point in time, you look at our massage and not getting anything and if the people are not going to give there's a cut money and not going to support the massage, then we may see a loss of massage and
it's just the truth. And then a loss of paranavitana says for needy travelers, okay travelers that are in need, you know, I was the kind of money we can use towards them as well.
This is an obligation from Allah. And Allah is all knowing, all wise Alhamdulillah that's all I wanted to cover with you today. It is 820 we have a good five minutes for q&a. We will do that from now inshallah, let me just clear some space around me so that I can move things around. And we will open it up for some questions. Let me open the chat here. Okay, so if anyone has any questions
I'll start with this here.
So I'm not going to go all the way back to the beginning to check questions. So whatever is gonna come in now okay.
It is said that shavon is in prison in the month of Ramadan. But how can we still get distracted in Santa Ana Invicta? Good question. That's because shavon worked on us for 11 months and our knifes is a little bit weak. And so we need to not give into our knifes Okay, you're getting into you to our knifes some of the scholars say no shavon has workers you know the other small shout out in the gym and so on. But I from the faculty of Darwinism the dean we like to look at things
very, very purely that look Yes, our own knifes we have control over ourselves and we don't some of us we give it and so we need to try to control that. Okay.
Is reading Quran in Arabic and English the same? No, it is not. Okay. So this person is saying I don't know Arabic And I'm learning it. I believe that understanding is more important rather than reciting without understanding. Is that wrong? I'm very confused. Okay, what's different? Don't be confused. First of all the Quran in Arabic, you get a reward for reciting it and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that when you recite the Quran, and if you're reciting it very quickly, I'll just explain this quickly. I'm not going to go into all the details. If you're
Send him in very quickly here in the higher ranks. And then for someone who is stuttering, the Sahaba were asking what about someone who's slow, someone who's struggling with the recitation of the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says they get double the reward that's for reciting it in Arabic. So we get so much reward for reciting in an Arabic right? reciting in in English, it's not a recitation, it's reading the translation and trying to understand it, okay? So we have to also have a teacher who's going to explain the Quran to us, not just reading through the book, start with the books, but also have a teacher who's going to teach it to you so you can
understand the verses of the Quran and then you can recite them with understanding then you'll get even more rewards. Okay, Instagram, bear with me, I'm coming to inshallah. Okay, I'm just gonna move this aside. There are a lot that came in here. Are we allowed to have cats as pets? Yes, we can. Can we sponsor orphans? was the kind of money yes, you can. orphans are poor, right? Especially if they're poor, if they're poor or in need the nice you can't if the if, if, if someone's asking to sponsor them, then you know, that's obviously because they're in need is reading for an interview engine.
I'm eight years old. My question is what is the most important purpose of fasting to gain taqwa, okay to gain nearness to Allah. So you can recognize I'm hungry right now. And I'm doing this only for a law. And the reward is great. And a lower open gates, the gates of Allah Yun for Me in Paradise to enter because I was from those who fasted, okay, while reading and so now if you make a mistake during the recitation of the Quran, and you make a mistake, what do you do? You correct your recitation. However, if a person does not correct the recitation, let's say they made a mistake, and you know, they can't figure it out. It's okay. As long as the majority of what you were cited is
fine, then that is fine. Okay. Let's go here to this Instagram, there's a difference. In motive. This is a touch sorry, there's a difference in moment in time on accm website and not on urban calendar posted. So I'm going to encourage you to follow the calendar that Ramadan calendar, okay, that's posted, follow that inshallah Tada, the website was supposed to have been adjusted, I will go back and check it, I will inform them, I do not have access to that. But I will inform them that the website was not corrected if it wasn't, but to my knowledge, it was supposed to have been corrected. Okay.
Or fast by the first and then we hear from the then clock, even if it's a little ahead of time of motherhood given by our local Masjid. So follow the local timing, don't follow the clock, The clock doesn't know, you could take the clock, put it in your backpack, put it on your back and get on an airplane and fly to China on the other side of the world. And you'll notice that your clock will still be calling the end based on the timing that it was programmed to
ring. However, if you follow the local, you know, advice of your mustard, that is the best thing to do. Okay.
Carrying on from UK loan question, the loan also gets cancelled automatically when a person has passed away. That's from a previous conversation that was taking place on the chat. And I can't go into previous chats because it'll take too long. What do you do if someone took out a loan for university in the UK? So I'm not in the UK? So I would ask you before even reading this and trying to answer it, I don't answer questions of things. I don't know. And I don't know the UK context. I don't live in England, so please ask a local scholar there. I would reach out to maybe Chicago visa near to LA you know, he's there's a panel of I can't remember the name of it right now. But a panel
of scholars there are many scholars that ask your local exam what you should do, okay, if someone owed me money, and he cannot give me
can I tell him that I accept it as much as I can now? It can. It can be counted as aka No.
If they owe you money, you can forgive them of it.
Okay, if you owe if they owe you money, you can forgive them of it. Okay, that will decrease the amount that you owe. But you can't say it's okay just keep it it's my account. I consider it as a god it's yours. Forgive them of it and if that decreases the amount you have to pay or takes away the amount you have to pay them that takes it away. Okay.
All right. 826 on us Our time is done Joseph Campbell level halen, about a kilo FICO or some. Someone is asking here iccm has acidity and time if nighttime but also a fudge of Muslim time which do we use.
Also a fudger Muslim time Okay, so don't follow the time of fudge of Salah in the masjid follow the time of circle on the calendar and follow the time if thought on the calendar. Okay, just like a little phenom about a low FICO sound. A lot of sentimental value cannot have enough to do either early or suddenly.
