Hakim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Anna v Hill Karim. Allah He follows Allah to attend with tasleem rubbish rocklea Sabri via Siddeley, Emily, Emily Sonia, Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters said Mr. alikum, warahmatu Allahi wa barakato.
I pray and hope and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, that every single one of you is doing well, and that you are benefiting from this month of Ramadan. And that the days of fasting are not too difficult upon any one of us. I mean, personally, my head is pounding today, and tried to take a little bit of a nap, but managed to get that nap on the law. I think we just lost one connection. Let me just double check this.
What just happened? Give me a few seconds. And this is where you have to do all the tech stuff by yourself.
All right, so
let's see if we can reconnect this alone law
and get it going. Internet's running fine everywhere else. So it should just be this platform, inshallah Everything will be fine. Okay.
So, yeah, I'm the law today is the, what, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday,
fourth day of fasting. Right, it's our fifth session together, we're doing the fifth juice today, Allah and Allah Subhana, which Allah has blessed us throughout this month of Ramadan to be able to live stream from from wherever we may be. And the weather is getting nicer. And I'm happy about that, because you can finally go outside and just enjoy a little bit of the heat. But I'm also happy because it provides a little more sunlight coming into the house, and is better lighting for live streaming. So for those who don't know the ins and outs of it, it is something that we benefit from when streaming. So the extra added sunlight is beneficial to those who are working from home live
streaming daily hamdulillah.
So today, we're going to be doing all of all of our ads that we're covering today are from sort of Tunis up here, all of the ads are found in sought after nissa. And we left off yesterday, you know, discussing the ending of sort of earlier Enron and we didn't actually begin sort of too nice. So we'll do that for today. And then we'll continue with the rest of the suit on shot along to add. Yesterday I wanted to cover a few of the verses the very first one that I wanted to cover was verse number four of soda to nice out homeless of Hanoi to add it reminds us of the importance of getting to a spouse so the husband giving to his wife, the motto, which is in English, we say thou read but
it's not the same as a dowry. The Maha is basically a gift that is given to the spouse. When she gets married, the husband gives that to her some of our cultures, you'll see in some cultures, some traditions, the bride gives a mohawk or gives a dowry to the groom. But in Islam, that isn't the case, right? The husband or the bride, the groom, is to give a gift to the bride for her to use, if she wants to use it for herself for her own personal maintenance to look after herself. If something happens in the marriage later on year, two years or a few years down the line, you know, she might be able to use that to help herself or support herself. Or maybe she already used some of it and
invested in it or invested it to to benefit herself, you know, some sort of business or investment to earn some wealth for yourself. Right. So we see that a lot of hanaway data here says give women who you wed so give your wife their do dairies right their Mo, Tony sauce, what a nice, so Ducati him then Allah, then Allah Subhana, Allah says, but if they waive some of it willingly, then you may enjoy it freely with a clear conscious, right, you may enjoy it freely with a clear conscience. So if, if, for example, you know, my wife tells me, I'm the law already gave her her mom, right. But if she was to say to me, you know, after a year of marriage, that I waive that, you know, you don't
have to give it to me, or you can only give me or you can give me half of it, for example, and not the whole amount. If you want, whatever the case is, then that is permissible, because the wealth belongs to her. It's hers. So it's an agreement that's made from the beginning of the marriage. And, you know, it's agreed upon throughout that time.
And is to be paid either before the marriage or on the day of the marriage or over
Some time. Now, here's a little tip.
Some people when they get married, they don't put in the marriage contract when they want the remainder of the Mahood, if it's not all going to be paid right away, they sometimes forget to put when they want the remainder of the money to be paid. So they will say, you know, let's say someone is giving $5,000 the groom will say, I'll give you $1,000 now, and $4,000 over time, or later on, when later on. So I like to always advise people and this is good for parents or young couples, or I should say young adults that are planning on getting married sometime soon, inshallah Anna, always put in there, when you expect to have that money given to you or when you expect to have that gift
given to you because it doesn't necessarily have to be money, it can be a gift, it can be something of value, right? And we see that in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where, you know, some of the Sahaba of the Aloha and Ron didn't have much to give. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked them, Do you have a ring? Right? Or do you have something that you can give something that has a little bit of value to it. So put a time limit, when you want that to be given to you when you expect to have it given to you. The reason why I say this is because sometimes people get caught up in not paying it and not receiving it. And then years go by, and
there may have may be something that has changed in value. For example, if it was, you know, an agreement that the groom would take his bride for Hajj, but then never actually does that. And years down the line, the price of Hajj goes from 10,000 to 20,000. Right. And then he says, You know what, I'm not able to do this, I can't afford it. Well, that's where we need to be specific. And that's where we need to discuss, you know, the details of what needs to be put into the marriage contracts or lesson handler data points that out here to us. In verse number six.
Allah subhana wa tada says, what the total yet and I had that either been on Nika, but in less time in humberston, 30, federal la him and one of them, I must have had a way to add is now talking about the wealth that belongs to an orphan, right? When an orphan is being looked after by any one of us, the wealth that belongs to them belongs to them, and we are interested to look after it, or to maintain it for them. However, that wealth doesn't belong to us, it always will belong to them. But here I must have had with Anna showing us something that I wanted to relate to our own children as well. Allah Subhana Allah says, test the competence of the orphans until they reach a marriageable
age. Right. So he's referring to wealth and doing so in the wealth that they have. He then says, Then, if you feel they're capable of sound judgment, return their wealth to them and do not consume it wastefully and hastily before they grow up to demand it. Right. So lots of headwinds, and is showing us the importance of
making sure that any one of us who is going to look after an orphan or taking care of an orphan, that the wealth that that orphan owns or possesses is going to be respectfully allocated to them and reserved for them. And we should take a part of it and test them with it as in teach them how to use well. Now, if Allah Subhana, Allah is saying, for us, as you know, adults to do this for an orphan child that may be under our care, then what about our own children? Okay, what about our own children, if our children are, you know, in possession of some wealth, and they are right, all of our children, I think we give them a little bit of money here and there, we need to teach them how
to use that wealth, and what to do with that wealth, and when to use it and when not to use it. And so the important aspect of this idea here is not only linked to orphans, but we also see that Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us the importance of teaching our own children, all children, how to use their wealth, and what to do with their wealth. And as adults we have a responsibility in making sure that we take care of that for them right as in we teach them how to look after their wealth, we teach them how to invest it, where to spend it, what to spend it on, what is permissible, what is not permissible, what is hot out what is hot, um, and so on and so forth, and how not to just use
the wealth so that there's nothing left in the end. We want to make sure that they have wealth and invest it in order to get more back in return.
So I wanted to you know, touch upon that here because the loss of handling which and I mentioned this with regards to the orphan, forgive me my brothers and sisters, I have a really really bad headache today, but I'm going to continue on with the session inshallah. Okay.
In verse number 29
I might actually just take a breather every now and then Alright, just to get some oxygen in my lungs
and over to my head.
Okay, the last I have the Fourth of July, I wanted to cover this yesterday
and we didn't have time to do that. I lost some handle it and it says huddly metallicum mahato como Veneto heretical Martin myrtleford multilotto for more beneficial as the webinar to talk to Matt miletti on barnacle was about to come in Nevada to Omaha to nissa ecomondo but he will come alert if you do recon minisite eco melotti the hunting between FL and takuna to be methanogenic la como la ecoman letting me become one touch my Robaina octane Ilana consultants in the market of affordable housing. It's a lengthy idea at the end of the fourth, just the last I have the fourth just but it is within sort of denisa Allah Subhana Allah shows us here the people who we are allowed to marry
and who are not allowed to marry. Okay, the people that are highlighted for us and the people that are held on for us, and it carries over into the next verse, the next verse, the beginning of the fifth, just one more sign out to mean and he said he learned he learned America to a medical and it continues. So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah there is showing us, you know, the people who we are forbidden to marry, for example, and the way of us have had with Allah does it is it's very simple. He'll he'll use for example, a men as an example. Okay, so the men, and now anyone that is mentioned linking this
or linking them to the men, a must have hanaway data is basically keeping the example simple that way. So here, I'll explain it. So for example, for a men, it is forbidden for you to marry your mother's. Okay, that's obvious, it's forbidden to marry your mother's. So let them handle it. And it doesn't now say okay for a woman that's forbidden to you, for you to marry your father. That's a given. Right? So the men can't marry his mother. And you know, the mother can't marry the son, the father can't marry the daughter and so on.
So Allah Subhana Allah says, It is forbidden for you to marry your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your paternal and maternal aunts, your brothers, daughters, your sisters, daughters, or foster mothers, your foster sisters, your mother's, your mother in law's and so on and so forth. And so this is important for those of you who are looking to figure out some details. Look, not everyone's family situation is as simple as the others.
You might have step brothers and sisters, you might have stepchildren, you might have foster children, you might have, you know, for example, a mother may have breastfed other children, what is the relationship between that mother and or that woman and those children? These are things that are found in this ayah. So if you're looking for that, and go to the last verse, sort of last verse of the fourth, just and you'll find it there and shout along to
verse number 29, of sunopta Nisa,
Allah subhanho wa Taala forbids murder and suicide. He says, Yeah, you're living in an urban let guru Amala convener conveyor belt to the Illa, anta quality gelatin and turn on the minco Well, that's up to you and forsaken. In the water Canada become rahima. Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us here all believers do not devour one another's wealth illegally, right, don't harm each other in terms of your usage of wealth, and we just finished explaining that, but rather trade by mutual consent, right trade by mutual consent. And then the key points here in this verse that we said that we would highlight is, and do not kill each other or yourselves. Allah subhanho wa Taala points out
in this ayah that it is forbidden to commit suicide. Now, I'm mentioning this verse, because it does happen in our community that we find at time someone commits suicide, but we have to also look deeper into it. Why is this person committing suicide? Sometimes people are doing this because they're depressed. Right? Sometimes people have no control over their actions. And so it does happen at times, where someone, you know, passes away, and we find out the reason of their death, are we to treat them differently. This is where we look into the Shetty. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, did not pray the jinn as someone who committed this however,
he's still allowed the Sahaba of the Aloha and home to pray the janaza prayer, which shows us it's something that's disliked Allah subhana wa tada doesn't like it. But we as the believers still have the responsibility to pray the genesis of that person.
Right. And again, we are not to judge each other, we are not to say that a person is going to paradise or someone else is going to Gehenna. Or hell, we cannot to do that we are not in that position. So my brothers and sisters, ultimately, at the end of the day, the decision remains with Allah subhanho wa Taala. We don't make that decision, we are not in any position to say, Oh, you know, this person is going to join them. So we're not going to, you know, pray there. janessa except in the case of someone who clearly blatantly, openly stated that they're not a believer. So why would we pray the agenda as a prayer of someone who said, you know, what, I'm not a believer, the
janazah prayer is something that is to be preyed upon the person who has to wait as a believer, if the person was weak in their belief, well, we're all weak. Right? Some people are more weak than others. And so if, for example, someone
passes away, and people say, Oh, you know, he used to drink alcohol. Okay?
That may have been the case, right? That may have been the case. But that doesn't mean that we're not going to pray there. janessa. Okay, that action, the sin that committed is a sin. But that doesn't mean that they're no longer a believer doesn't mean they're no longer, you know, someone who believes in a loss of hand with Allah, who maybe tries to submit to Allah subhana wa, tada, but was weak. And so we can't be the judges. In the end, my brothers and sisters. So this verse points out, you know, that it is not liked by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To do this, sometimes people say, I don't feel the purpose of my life anymore. Why do I even live, we live to worship Allah, if you don't feel
the purpose of your life, maybe we're not worshiping Allah, subhana wa, tada enough, maybe we need some help, maybe we need some medical attention. Maybe we need to speak to a therapist. Right. So there are lots of things that we can do and try and hope is not lost, we need to continue to try hope, is ultimately going to rely in our trust that we put in a loss of Hannah boy to have. So my brothers and sisters, let's make sure that we do not judge each other. Let's make sure that we tried to get help for those who are living around us who need help, who need assistance, who are going through hardship and difficulty. Because especially, you know, in these times, there are so many
people that are in need of help related to their mind, right? mental health, mental health, it's, you know, it's just everywhere nowadays, especially, you know, during these times where we're experiencing, you know, self isolation and staying at home and stuff like that. And a lot of the time people will be reacting to things very emotionally, right, they will react to things very emotionally because they have nothing left to hold on to. And this is where we should be making our homes, you know, a place of very bad, and a place that we turn to a loss of Hannah, what's ahead.
Let's move on to
verse number 35,
verse number 35, Allah Subhana, Allah is showing us here, if you anticipate a split, you anticipate that a husband and a wife are going to split up? Do you anticipate a split between them appointed mediator from his family, and another from hers? If they desire reconciliation, Allah will restore harmony between them. Surely Allah is all knowing, all aware. So my brothers and sisters, if you anticipate or a husband or wife in their relationship, anticipate that their marriage is not going to work, they should appoint someone who's going to mediate right between them. Now, here are some headwinds. And it says from his family, and another from hers, as in someone from both sides of the
family should come to discuss what's going on between the two of them. This does not mean that everyone in the family gets involved in these people's problems, right? It does not mean that the person who's appointed to mediate goes and tells everyone else in the family. Oh, you know, he did this. And she did that. And they're going through this, and this is the problems that they have. And did you know, that is not what it means. It means that there should be someone from this side and someone from that side that is trustworthy enough to come together to discuss with both of them to try to help them to reconcile. And if you can't get that to happen from amongst them as family, then
try to get someone from outside of the family. The reason why I say this is because a lot of the time, people who are appointed within the family create a bigger problem for the couple themselves. Right? They start to choose sides of the person who they're related to, right they choose the side of the person they're related to. And then what we see happening is that the
There's no you know, clear minded decisions that are being made. Everyone is biased. Everyone has their own, you know, self invested interest in, in working out, whatever it is that they're trying to work out between the couple, and a loss of Hannah Montana does not like that. So my brothers and sisters Allah subhana wa Tana says, if the desire reconsider reconsolidation, Allah will restore harmony between them, right? So we have to actually want it, we have to desire it, we have to try to do it. Now people will say, how is that going to happen? Where's this? You know, reconciliation going to come from if both parties have been trying for some time, I'll tell you after dealing with
many people's problems,
a lot of the time, they're not coming back together to try to reconcile for the sake of pleasing Allah, they're coming back together to try and reconcile for the sake of proving someone else wrong, or for the sake of proving their family that they did something, or for the sake of saying in the end that I tried, and you see, this is what happened, right? They're not honestly and truly sincerely doing it for the sake of a loss of Hannah Montana. What I mean by this is, you know, sometimes we try to reconcile for our own emotions, we should look at what would Allah subhana wa, tada want me to do in this situation? And I'll use an example. If a wife is being physically abused.
And she says, oh, for the sake of Allah, I'm going to stay in the relationship. Allah Subhana Allah doesn't want you to be physically abused. So there's a fault in your reasoning to get back into that relationship.
