We love him and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam were an energy healer Karim Allah He follows Salah to attempt to slim rubbish roughly sodomy way acidity Emily Emily Sania Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa he will buy cattle. I hope that everyone is doing well and shuttled on data. And tonight, we are actually doing the seventh Jews of the Quran, which means tonight is the seventh night of Ramadan. So, tomorrow, being the eighth would mean that we've concluded one month of Ramadan from tomorrow evening in sha Allah. So this being the seventh Night of the month of Ramadan, it's important for us to recognize the fact that as much as
it seems like it just began, it's probably going to end very soon. And the question is, have I been doing the things that I really want to do? Have I achieved the things that I expected to achieve? And then like going to achieve the things that I planned on achieving? So this is it, this is this is go time, right? We've been talking about it for months on end, we've been saying that we're working our way towards the month of Ramadan. And here we are at some of and we've got to get it up and give it all we've got otherwise, it's going to be gone. Right? So I'm having good luck. You know, it's nice to see that everyone is tuning on, you know, right here and in other places as well,
learning from many people around the world that handler as a blessing from Allah Subhana, which Adam. But at the same time, we need to also ask ourselves with all the knowledge that we are getting with everything that we are benefiting ourselves with throughout this month of Ramadan. Am I actually changing for the better? Am I even changing? Right? And that's a question every single one of us is going to have to ask ourselves. Now I know that the month of Ramadan this year has been very different than I know that we've not really expected to go through what we're going through right now. We haven't really expected to experience this kind of self isolation throughout the day
and throughout the night throughout this month of Ramadan. But it's a blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada. Because you know, when you think of it, how much time is saved, looking for a parking spot at the masjid, right. For those of you that are tuning in from other countries, you might not have this issue. But over here, we have lots of parking issues, right. So we don't have to spend time parking our cars, we don't have to spend time trying to leave the parking lot afterwards. We don't have to come super super early and sacrifice our time eating in order to get to the mustard on time. So there's butter cut in lots of what we do. I'm not saying that getting to the mustard is a bad thing
or getting there early. That's a good thing. But it comes at a sacrifice, right families need to rush food is not eating properly, or it's gulped down and not chewed properly, which is not good for our house. And so Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us throughout throughout this time right now this month of Ramadan, where we can actually maximize from what Allah subhana wa has added has given to us from the comfort of our homes and hamdulillah. So here we go. We're going to continue similar to EDA, we're not really going to talk about food, though we spoke enough about food yesterday, Al Hamdulillah. We didn't talk about your favorite food. So if you want to write that in the chat
session, go ahead. You know, especially if you're on YouTube or Facebook, I'll see it popping up in front of me. But if you want to type that out on Instagram as well, please feel free go ahead and type in what your favorite food is, or what you love to eat at the end of a long day of fasting throughout the month of Ramadan.
Why don't you do that I'm going to continue in sha Allah. So I'm going to take verse number 89 of pseudotumor EDA. We see here how Allah subhana wa Tana shows us what to do if we take an oath and then break it. So sometimes as Muslims, we know very well we hear it all the time. You're talking to someone and they say, well law he I'm going to meet you tomorrow at nine o'clock. And tomorrow at nine o'clock comes along, and they're nowhere to be found. And they're like, Oh, you know, forgive me, you know, I'm busy this and that. And then they're like, well, I'll make it up to you tomorrow and the next day comes in, they never make it up to you. Right? So taking an oath, there are
consequences in Islam to taking that oath. Okay. For example, someone says they're going to have a juicy a good juicy burger as little feta unsought, he says, or I'm going to cheat by his saying So Moses and pecota also lots of Autobots. Nice to have some Muslims
but so Pamela that's the first thing you eat after breaking your fast I don't know
might be a long term effects to that but as long as we eat within moderation, then that's good. I was just talking to my dad and he was saying eat some photos for him as well. I'm gonna race with eggs and ketchup and water. What? Okay, rice with eggs and ketchup. And of course lots of water, no doubt. burger also yummy ham, the law. Lots of articles. Lots of lots of you have good food preferences. There's
Lots of different kinds of foods around the world that we'd like to see and enjoy as well. So again, if you want to feel free to type that in there, you might make some other people hungry, but you might inspire other people to actually cook those meals for themselves or for their family. Right? So verse number 89, Allah Subhana, Allah says, Allah will not call you to account for your thoughtless oaths, but he will hold you accountable for deliberate oath as in taking an oath on purpose with the intention of not following through with it. And the penalty for a broken oath is to feed 10 poor people. So you know, when you're chilling with your friends, and this happens a lot
with our youth, and they say, well, law II, I'm going to do this.
Are you really, are you really going to do it, if you're going to do it, that's great. If you're not going to do it, then there might be a price to pay, and the price to pay first of all that we see according to the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is for us to feed 10 people, right. So that's the first thing, the penalty for the broken oath is to feed 10 poor people, as in each one of them will get, you know, a decent solid meal. So if you thought you're going to go out to a restaurant once or twice, well, you got to do that 10 times for someone else for other people, right? Then Allah subhana wa tada says, and he says, what you would normally feed yourself or feed
your own family. Okay?
So, a decent sized meal, we're not talking about just something small, we're talking about something decent, because most of us don't eat something small. Okay? And if we do, then that's better for us. Right? Then that's better for us. If you do need to, you know, make up for an oath that's broken, the law wouldn't be so bad, it wouldn't be so difficult, right? However, if a person is not able to follow through with the expiation of that sort as in following through with and you know, the, the the the punishment for breaking an oath, then Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses or to close them so 10 people you feed or 10 people you close, or to free, a bonds person, right? Free someone who is
technically at that time a slave, right? We don't really have slaves at our time, but to free someone who is enslaved someone who is trapped, basically not able to live freely. And then Allah Subhana Allah says, but if none of this is affordable to you, then you must fast for three days. Okay, fasting for three days. So someone takes an oath and says, well, law here, I'm going to attend the class tomorrow. And if they fall asleep or something happens, that's different because Allah subhana wa tada says, you know that the pen is lifted upon three, the person who is not mature yet the person who is not seen as and they're not meant to be there, right? They're there. I don't know.
They might be unconscious, they might be
for whatever reason, right? They're not they're not meant to be there. And thirdly, someone who is sleeping until they wake up, right? So for example, you said, Well, lucky I'm gonna attend tomorrow and tomorrow comes around and you're like, forget Am I gonna attend is boring. Anyways, I'm not really learning anything. It's useless, right? Why do we need to go? Why do we need to watch right when people say that? So if that's the case, but you took an oath Yesterday, you said Well, lucky you are going to attend and if you're not going to attend, then you're going to need to either feed or close 10 people from what you would feed yourself or your family or you would wear yourself or
you're going to have to free a slave or you're going to have to fast for three days. And you have to do that in order to not be sinned or not be punished I should say by Allah subhana wa tada later on. So we need to follow through with these expectations. Now I'm pretty sure people on Instagram, just get a peek over this side. Probably said that they've, you know, enjoyed some nice foods and stuff. I can't really see what's written there because there's like multiple layers of devices in front of me.
But, you know, hamdulillah you could always, you know, ask a question on Facebook. I see that in front of me on Instagram, I don't really see it, but you know what, I usually don't like to open up q&a session right now. But I should at the end of every single day, I think I will finish a little bit earlier, and then open it up for some q&a. So today inshallah, let's say, by eight o'clock, we'll try to stop you know, my teaching session and then we'll open it up for questions that way, we don't have to stop or be interrupted halfway through. Is that a deal?
I think that's a deal. Right? There's probably a delay in your response, but we'll see that there inshallah. Okay.
Who two dates, one or two glasses of who loves a and straight dinner after yummy chicken karate. Allahu Akbar. Marina Deen is just making like the meltwater. He's making the heart long for food, and he's making the mind go somewhere else away from tipsy right now.
away from the explanation of Villa Xochimilco fan and winner Dean for that beautiful, beautiful explanation of what you love to eat. After a long day of fasting come to law, the rule of law just like tops it off.
We grew up on that stuff. So yeah, that's what kind of data shows us there the penalty for breaking an oath of office had always had it says Be mindful of it right Be mindful of your oaths. Keep track of them. If you said you were going to do something, follow through with it. If you promised a person something, make sure that you fulfill it. It was from the son of the Prophet son alone or it was something from his personal you know, behavioral traits who he was that if he made a promise to someone, he would fulfill it right? He would fulfill that promise, and he wouldn't just disregard it or leave it off. Okay.
I'd like to jump to verse number 90, Allah subhana wa tada here says, In verse number 90 of surah to Nikita, for those that came late, right, Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you're highlighting
From any shape on Effendi attorney,
Attorney boo boo learn to snitch
on Muslim Hanoi, Johanna says all believers in toxicants, gambling, idols, right, worshipping idols, or having idols in general, and drawing lots for decisions are all evils of shape bonds, bones handiwork, they're all different kinds of evil, of shape on right. So for example, alcohol or intoxicants, we know that it's harm we know it's not permissible. And we know that shape on encourages people to drink it. And this is really interesting, because during this time, where essential services are being offered, especially to us here in Canada, part of essential services is still the sales of intoxicants.
Does that make sense? I don't know. I honestly needed to just pause at that. Because it doesn't make sense. I mean, I see where they're coming from. And I understand that, you know, for people thinking that, you know, you're going to be depressed, it's hard. You need to drink your drink your anxiety away, or drink your thoughts away. You know, and just, you're stuck at home, you're depressed, has nothing to do just drink, get drunk past time, you know, fall asleep, but Suhana law. That is something that never makes it, in my opinion, from what I've seen, from what I've witnessed, and the people that I've dealt with that have been drunk. And I've interacted with drunk people quite often,
Simply because, you know, I've been to places where, you know, people, drunk people come in to the masjid sometimes and even ask questions. You know, Subhana, Allah.
They're never happy afterwards. They're just never happy. It's not like you drink and you become happy after you become happy temporarily. But your problems are still there. The pandemic didn't disappear because someone got drunk last night, right? It didn't disappear for them. It's not like you drink, you get drunk, and all of a sudden, everything goes away. No, it's still there. So we need to tackle these challenges from a different angle and try to get past them in through them in a way that's, that's positive and productive. Right.
So lots of pen with Anna says that from the evils of shape on and from the handiwork of shape on his intoxicants that people will feel You know what, I'm just gonna do it, just gonna drink, right, and they drink. And then once they've had one sip of alcohol, somehow, there's a brother in our community. Many years ago, he told me this story. And he said, you can use it, you can use it just don't reveal who he is.
He said, You know, he was working for a company, and he would travel a lot. And when he would travel, his colleagues, you know, they would go to, you know, after they were done with seeing their clients, or sometimes while seeing the clients, they go out to a club, or they go out to a bar, they go to a restaurant, and they eat and they get wine and they drink.
And then the brother was saying, you know, afterwards
ya know, and Eva, interesting, right? So the brother was saying after, after some time, he thought to himself over, you know, from being pressured by his colleagues and co workers. They were always like, come on, man. Just have a glass of champagne or a glass of wine. Like it's nothing just one glass, what's it going to do to you? And he said, eventually, over some time after a few years, he thought to himself, you know, what, what is the harm? Like let me just try it. So he took a sip like his friends or colleagues, they were saying, you know, what's the worst that can happen? You take one sip nothing's gonna happen. And that's shavon right? They're not that the people are shade on
but that's shaytaan whispering to you, right? Because you're nuts is telling you don't do it. Michigan's whispering to you, hey, just do it. It's okay. Don't worry. Just try it. You'll see nothing's gonna happen. And so he took that one sip, and he's not to himself. Well, nothing happened to me.
If nothing happened to me after once it then maybe it could just have one class, right? So he had a glass of champagne or you know, wine or whatever it was. He says, The next day when they were meeting their clients afterwards again, he had another one. And then you know, his colleagues ordered a second drink. So he, you know, they ordered a second one for him. And he felt bad. So he drank it as well. He realized that he started to feel tipsy, he started to feel drunk, like, you know, starting to go crazy, right? And for those who don't know, a lot of Muslims don't know these terms, right? But starting to feel tipsy means that, you know, you're not really all there. Okay?
The alcohol is starting to have an effect on you.
And so the brother was saying that afterwards, some kind of law, he realized that, you know, he couldn't control himself because it was the norm. His colleagues were like, well, you drank yesterday, why are you not going to drink today, like you had one yesterday, you should be able to have one today. So we had another one and another one and another one. And then after that, afterwards, they went, you know, to a bar, and he ordered a drink. And then it resulted in him getting drunk time after time after time. For a few years of him going and traveling.
He would be drunk, when he would go away and come home to his family, not knowing what he's doing when he's abroad, on these business, you know, meetings and stuff. And then it reached a point in time, where he realized what he's doing is completely wrong, and how wrong and he should not do this. And he changed himself around completely completely so kind of what he realized I could lose my wife, I could lose my children, I could lose my my house, I could lose my family, I could lose my income, I could lose everything here What am I doing, and he left it all and some how to love my brothers and sisters. This brother is an hamdulillah financially well off, family wise comfortable
in terms of happiness and joy. Now he's so happy so content and hamdulillah This is a brother who Allah Subhana Allah has given him the things of the dunya at his fingertips, because he left off what he was being tested with of this dunya. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him even more. And here we see a loss of habitat is showing us that these are the things of shape on right. So intoxicants gambling, idols like gambling, as well, as brothers and sisters, I've seen this. And I've actually gone into you know, stores, sometimes they go to the gas station, you fill up gas, and there's a Muslim brother Muslim sisters working there, and they asked you, would you like a scratch
card? A scratch card is lottery. Right? It is gambling itself. And so that is not permissible for us as Muslims who cannot indulge in it. You know, I remember the last time I went to a gas station, it was a Muslim brother, but I know I know him. I see him all the time in the community. And he asked me He's like, would you like a scratch cart? And I was like, those are hot on why would you ask me He's like, Oh, is this force of habit, I was like, but you shouldn't even ask the other clients or you know, the other customers that come in something that's how long you shouldn't encourage the people buy it right
sman you're asking if we can take a break. I'm sorry, if we take a break for you, then we're gonna have to you know, take a break very soon as well for us as well. So we're going to continue you can have your thought and listen as well. But I'm not too sure where you are on Earth, that it's
probably in like Montreal or Eastern Canada or something. But for us over here, it is not time for install yet. So we're going to continue all the way to market right.
So here Allah subhanaw taala is showing us the things that is from shavon. And that shaylen encourages us with this slowly takes us away from Allah subhana wa, Tada. Then Allah says in verse number 91 Satan's plan is to stir up hostility and hatred between you with intoxicants and gambling and to prevent you from remembering a lot and praying, Will you not then abstain? Right? That's a lot of come about from New York and Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us here, look, intoxicants and gambling, the purpose of them from Shaban is to divide us to split us up to cause problems. I know Muslim brothers in our community and I'll say brothers because I know some brothers
in the community who drink alcohol at home, in the comfort of their homes. And they know some of them who are not even fasting during Ramadan right now, their families may even be watching this right now at home, it might be on their TVs at home and the husband is drinking alcohol or the husband is not fasting throughout the month of Ramadan. And you know the children are seeing this the children are growing up seeing that their father is you know someone who at night gets drunk and sometimes you know possibly has very
violent behavior. And I know some sisters have come to me in the community and they say, you know what, when he drinks, we lock the door and we tell them don't come to the room tonight. You know, you sleep in another room of the house. And brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa tada is showing us it is how long it is from shape on and it splits you up. And it causes hatred between you. If you think your children love you, and secretly, you're drinking alcohol, and you're gambling and you're doing things that shape one loves that a loss of Hannah Montana hates, don't think that your children are going to love you for a long time. Because once they find out and once they see the
truth and the reality of who you are, as a parent who is doing this, they will not appreciate that, and they will not respect it. And they will probably do it themselves. Or I shouldn't say probably. But if they do do it, if they do, do the things that we don't care about doing. And we just do it for the sake of it because it's fun, and it's cooler it makes make someone feel good. And if they start doing it, and you start to notice your children doing that, that's when it hits your heart so much that you feel Why did I ever smoke? Why did I ever get high? Why did I ever drink alcohol? Why did I ever gamble? Why did I ever cheat? Why did I ever steal? Why did I ever do these things?
That's when a person starts to think to themselves? Why did I do these things when they see their children getting into trouble from doing these exact same things. So my brothers and sisters, be careful, be careful, be careful. The society that we live in is calling us inviting people, inviting people to hurt on inviting people to things that are not permissible, according to Allah subhanho to add, and for the sake of Allah, we stay away from it and for our own sake, as well for the sake of love, because a lot teaches us the best way to live. I don't need alcohol to drink my worries away. Right? I need to face my worries, I need to face my problems, I need to face my difficulties. I need
to face my hardships. These are things that we are going to deal with in life, my brothers and sisters, and if we don't take them seriously, then what kind of a life are we going to have once we leave this world because we believe that there's a hereafter and we will get to that hereafter at some point in time. But we can not spoil the time that we spend in this life. Because if we do, and we are also spoiling the time that we will spend eternally in the hereafter.
And then Allah Subhana which Allah reminds us obey Allah will open your own laws.
that you tell us latency.
he also can with henesys obey Allah and obey the messenger and be aware right, there will be where Be careful. But if you turn away, then no. Understand, know or understand
that our messengers duty is only to deliver the message clearly. That's it. It is not the responsibility of Mohammed's on a longer ID usnm to come and pull us by the hand and you know, take us away from things now if someone accepts and understands then they understand and they accept and they change themselves for Allah subhana wa tada but we are not to force it upon anyone else. And we take the example of Mohamed Salah longer I think he was sending them, we are not going to you know force someone to turn to Allah if they turn away, they turn away. There's nothing that we can do. Right? We try we deliver the message clearly. Right? Our duty is to deliver the message clearly. And
if people reject the message if our family members and relatives reject a loss of handwritten it is what it is. There's nothing that we can do my brothers and sisters except continue to turn to a loss of Panama to hell. And other than that, we leave it up to Allah. We continue to invite them we continue to deliver the message clearly we continue to make do our out for them and turn to Allah and ask. And the rest of this is with a loss of how to what to add.
In verse number 101.
a loss of headway to add and now shows us something really interesting. I love this verse. I remember when I was a student in Medina and our teacher explained this to us. It made me feel it made me feel much better. And you'll see why. Right. I must have had with Hannah says.
learned this and more than she
Buddha Come on.
me, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh believers do not ask about any matter, which, if made clear to you may disturb you. So in Islam,
we are allowed and encouraged to ask questions. So for example,
if you are asking a question, or you want to know, does it break my fast if I use this miswak?
You asked that question, right. And so it's permissible to ask, and unless of headwinds addresses Fest, victory in country letter and if you don't know then ask the people of knowledge. However, at the same time, now, that's fine. That's with regards to knowledge and seeking knowledge and understanding it, while at the same time a loss of habitat it tells us here all believers do not ask about any matter which is made clear to you may disturb you. What this means is sometimes people ask too many questions, that it starts to make their lives feel difficult, they start to feel trapped, they start to feel stuck, they start to feel as though I can't do this, I'm not able to get through
it. And, and it's just too much. It's overwhelming. That's the word I'm looking for. It's overwhelming, right. And so my brothers and sisters also had with data showing us yeah, you have Medina M and lettuce and learn a Shia intubate that have come to succumb to many things that if we ask all that, especially all at once, it becomes overburdened. Right, it's just too much. And then we can deal with it. It becomes difficult, life becomes too hard. And then we start to get worried about the things that she thumb's whispering to us about. What about this? What about that? What if I do this? What if I didn't do that? What if I forgot to do something? Right? What? What if I put my
socks on with my socks are too thin? What if my socks were too thick? What if I forgot? I don't know. Maybe Maybe I washed one year, but I didn't rinse the other ear. Right? Maybe I went like this, but I didn't go like that. Oh, no, what am I going to do? Right? And so I must have handled it to Hannah's showing us here. Do not ask too many questions that if you ask, it's going to make life difficult for you, for example, you made did you make Lulu? Yes, you have a loop? You're saying? No. But maybe I didn't wash my elbow. And then you check and you're like, Okay, it looks like it might be washed. I don't know the skin over here yet. Feels like it was wet. I don't. Maybe Yeah. Okay,
possibly. You know, when you start to ask questions about little things, minute little things here and there.
It becomes a little bit difficult upon us because you start to think about every single thing. And this is where I want some hands on is showing us take your deen take your religion, what you've learned.
implement it, live by it, express it to others, share it with your family. It is important for us to learn our Deen and slowly as we learn it implemented in our lives, and not to take too much of it. That's why I like to keep these sessions really simple. I like to simplify what I teach. I don't like to give heavy knowledge to general masses. I like to give heavy knowledge to serious students, people who I know they can handle it. And I know they're going they're coming back regularly for more serious knowledge for heavier knowledge. They're the serious students. And I'm not saying that other people are not serious about the knowledge. What I mean by that is, these are people that are
learning and they're they're, you know, pushing themselves hard to not only learn but to implement it, to understand it, to study it, to revise it, and then to teach it to others. But the general masses from amongst us, you know, myself included, we don't always want to have serious heavy knowledge. And this is why our teachers I remember Sheikh Mohammed mctavish in PT.
He used to tell us that for every hour that you are going to teach, you need to read for 16 hours, on average 16 hours. So somewhere between 12 to 16 hours, you need to read and revise and refresh your memory and go over to your notes and research for what 12 to 16 hours before you can teach something for one hour. So you know what's really interesting is when we start to teach right when you teach us them and teach it to others people think okay, you studied it's all in here. You just you
just dump it all out on us like just give it
Give it to us. But it isn't like that. There are little nitty gritty things that you learn when you're a student studying Islam that helps you to put puzzle pieces of things together. It's like your hand, the must Allah is here, right? This is the Messiah. This is this is what we're looking at this you know what we're discussing the topic of, I don't know, knowledge seeking knowledge, the seeking knowledge begins with
good morals, good values, respect, honoring parents, right? being trustworthy. Speaking properly, there are different branches that leads to us seeking that knowledge and being able to hold on to it. And that my brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa tada is showing us sometimes we don't need to ask too many questions. And as teachers, sometimes we shouldn't give all the different, you know, things that are out there that are related to or pertaining to a must to a roomie, I remember one of my friends.
A few years ago, I was at his Masjid. And I attended his class, right? I was invited to speak or to teach at the masjid as well. But one of the classes while I was there, it was his so I went with him and I sat down and he was teaching and he started saying, okay, the henna below say this right in the humbly mazahub. And then the chef or emails have they say that, and then amalickiah. They say this, but some of the scholars they say that, and then the majority say this, but then the chef urea they say that, and then he was like, Oh, he's complicating his whole community, like he is confusing his community. Right? He's confusing his community. He's complicating the deen for his community,
they're becoming confused. It's good to teach that way to students that are able to understand the different aspects of the knee. But I remember when I was young, and we we'd sometimes attend, you know, a lecture that was a bit heavier, like we don't understand, because we didn't have the basis of it. And this is where I was headed with Allah showing us ask a question pertaining to what applies to you. Some people and there's a sister I know, right? There's a sister in our community, she comes in, she asks me questions fairly often, right? These questions are not to do with her at all. She'll hear about someone else who's going through something or experiencing something, she'll
come and ask me. And then she'll go and tell the person then she'll realize, oh, but Oh, man, I should have known that before. And then she'll come back and ask and then go back. And so there's constant game of going back and forth. While at the same time, she will be involved in many people's issues. So like asking, okay, this person has is another sister asked me to ask this and other sister told me this. And I'm like, sister, you are complicating things for yourself. First of all, rule number one, someone has an issue. Here's my phone number, here's my email address. Here's the budget, right? The Doors right there, you can come in, you can ask. So whoever has these questions,
tell them to come in ask Allah Subhana, which Allah says, first
victory. In quantum letter, I'm going to ask the people who have knowledge, don't ask someone who doesn't know who's going to then take your question to someone else to relate it to them and then come back. The problem there is, there's a lot that gets lost in translation.
And the loss of head with the head is showing and showing us here, keep things simple for yourself, right? When you lose certain bits and pieces of information, and you're not able to put it all together, you're not going to get the right rooming or you're not going to get the right answer to your question. And what happens there is you might start doing something based on an answer you got only to realize, weeks, months, maybe even years later, you were doing the wrong thing. Because there was a piece of information that was missing, when the question was being asked by that other person. And so my brothers and sisters, when you have a question, go and ask, ask the people have
knowledge as to people who know and if the person doesn't know the answer to it, then they should not answer it. While at the same time. Remember, my brothers and sisters, when the scholars are answering questions, they're usually answering them based on their time and their place. Okay, based on their time and their place. So if you're in another country, or you're hearing the answer or response to a question from someone from a scholar, who's giving that answer based on his or her place and time, then that's the context of what they are going through in their country in their place, not in ours. So we need to be careful of that my brothers and sisters, okay, be very careful
of, you know, doing things or taking examples or rulings and teachings and answers and stuff like that from people who are in different countries or experiencing something from
completely different than what you are experiencing. Okay, let's move on to the next one.
So what I do is titled The cattle hay the cattle.
And we saw at the beginning of sort of too many that are held at local Mahima to me, ilam, Utila la como lado this lady went into her room. Okay, so the next one after that is Surah Al Anam. And we said that we were going to stop at eight o'clock so I'm going to push it by a few minutes inshallah and then we'll take some questions, okay, because I want to cover some verses here. We'll go to verse number
4244, a loss of Penwith and verse number 4244. So what he shows us here, ask them old prophet right, he's telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam quoted it to him in a technical manner below he Oh, at KU Mossad available, he did the rune income to saw the thing. He says, Ask them, ask them, right, awesome. Henry, Dan is telling the Prophet sallallahu and he was send them, ask them will shikun ask them. Imagine if you were overwhelmed by a loss torment or the hour as in this came to you and you're overwhelmed. Now? Would you call upon any other than a love for help?
If your claims are truly true? And then also pen with Anna says Ben, yo to the Runa?
He says no, he is the only one you would call.
Right? So he's telling you how long it was send them tell them if you're going through hardships, it or the hour comes, the day of judgment comes you're gonna turn to someone else on the day of judgment? Absolutely not. You're going to turn to Allah. And that's what he says in the next verse. He says, tell them, no, he is the only one you would call to Allah you would turn only to Allah. And if he will, he could remove the affliction that made you invoke him. Only then will you forget whatever you associate with him in worship. So my brothers and sisters a message to those who do not worship Allah subhanho wa Adana are those who think they can live their lives, and I'll just sit
back and live how I want. And then when I get older and retire, I'll become a better Muslim. No, what makes you think that will be? First of all? How do we know we're going to reach that age? Like how do I know I'm going to get that old in order to retire first. Secondly, when I do retire, life might be so difficult for me that I don't have the opportunity or the ability to turn to a loss of habitat. So if I don't make that routine, and that structure from now, and I don't worry about my hereafter in my life from now, then what guarantee Do I have that I will be able to do that later on? There's none. So we start from now my brothers and sisters, then Allah Subhana, Allah gives us a
very simplified eye opener, I call this a simple eye opener. Look at this, Allah says, Ask, right? I was telling the prophets along it was kind of ask them
well, I am in the law, who seminar
kulu become men in
law yet D.
Being who is going to come after that, right? Who's going to restore your site, who's going to restore, you know, your hearing? Who is going to restore your hearts from being sealed? None either available here, it could be on the kayfun or suddenly for at some years before Allah Subhana Allah says, See, all profit, how we vary the signs, yet they still turn away from Allah subhana wa Tada. So he says, Ask them, imagine if a law were to take away your hearing. Right? Remember I said it's a simplified way of lesser penalties and making us open our eyes, right? See if allow us to take away from your hearing, or from your site or seal your hearts? Who else other than a law could restore
it? Who's going to bring our eyesight back? No doctor, right? Who's going to bring our eat our hearing back? No doctor, right? No one, except Allah subhanho wa Taala has the ability to bring that back. Now there are ways to try to fix or try to rectify some things, but you can never bring it back to the way a Muslim hen would animate it. You can never have hearing the way Allah Subhana Tana makes hearing or sounds be heard, right? That can never happen except with the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. So
My brothers and sisters, that's important for us to focus on. And then through the next, you know, part of the sorta, in fact, the beginning and you know, through this middle part of the school, not
at school until, unless of headwinds ahead is showing us multiple amounts of signs of his greatness. Right. And this is something that we'll see throughout the quarter as well, right? It's something we'll cover in many of the other jewels of the Quran, or as that of the Quran, which is why I'm not going through it in detail right now. Also, because we said we would stop for QA. But Allah subhana wa tada shows us he controls life and death. He knows what we do, right? And leave those who take their religion as plate and amusement and are deceived by the dunya. Allah Subhana. Allah tells us that verse number 70, people who are deceived by the dunya, who take this Deen just as like a joke,
leave them like don't spend time with them? Don't you know don't even argue with them. How many times is it happened my brothers and sisters that we debate with people, and they are not going to accept Islam? Or maybe it's Muslims, and they're not going to accept what Islam has to say what Allah has to say, if they're not going to accept a lot, what makes us think they're going to accept us and what we have to say. It's a no brainer, right? So unless a pen with Alice's whether the Latina Latina who left the band, well, what was that? Well, Tom will hang out and dunya Mahatma tumoral hyah to dunya.
Allah Subhana Allah says, and leave those who take this faith, Islam as mere play and amusement and are diluted by worldly life. If they're distracted by this dunya then make dua for them begin by making to offer them and if they are not going to accept the words and the Sunnah of Mohammed Salah is in the words of Allah subhana wa tada the command of Allah the Quran, so I'm not going to accept that and what makes us think they're going to accept us, or what we have to say. I've spent lots of hours debating with people. And I reached a point in time in my life where I realized it's not about debating Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran about inviting people people with the ruinous abelia
of beaker bill hikma, one molar is until has an
ability here, right and we'll cover that verse later on in sha Allah. Allah subhana wa tada showing us the importance of inviting people to Allah subhana wa tada using wisdom and using kind words. And then he says, which I didn't him. So if you're going to debate with them, bility here isin be, you know, be fair, be respectful in the way that you debate with people will suffice with that for today. In short, a lot of data we'll open it up to take some of your questions. Any of you who have some questions, feel free to write them in inshallah I went too quickly just drew up this a little bit so I can see what's going on behind me. There we go.
You are on
YouTube and Facebook. Then just type it in. I'll see that right in front of me on the screen. If you're on Instagram. I will just toss this to the side.
Spy run Stop joking around. What's going on? Then? my tripod is digging people for a ride from the left. Okay.
Susie Susanna is that my classmate from Malaysia? Anyone going to iccm for mocha? Okay, someone's asking that? I don't know. I'm not at iccm. I'm streaming live streaming. So we have a question here.
And try to keep the questions very short and concise because time is ticking. Right. And we got to make sure that we finish before thought.
Are we allowed to brush teeth while fasting? Yes, you can, as I mentioned before, so for those that are asking these questions, I've done a few episodes. If you go to my YouTube channel, you'll see them there. Or if you go to my Facebook, in fact, go to my Facebook, you'll see they're on my personal Facebook. The videos are up the, you know, sessions that we did about essential fit just within the week before Ramadan. All of these questions about Ramadan are mentioned there. Scenario fauja then started a second back and you just started brushing, would you Okay, so you're permitted to brush your teeth while fasting just don't swallow the toothpaste. Okay.
Someone here says
facing the direction of a Qibla Am I going to make two phone numbers installer
from the heart and making myself conscious that I'm going to prefer
surgeon okay. So I think you're asking most of what you're asking about your intentions. Lots of questions coming in. Maybe tomorrow we'll dedicate half an hour to some questions.
So most of us asking about the intention intention is made in the heart. Okay? So you don't need to actually utter an intention before saw that you don't need to say an intention. You basically just need to start your soul out with the intention in your heart. If I say swear is equal to St. Louis yeah so if you say I swear by a lot, right I swear that I'm going to do this you're basically taking an oath okay? So you need to be careful of that. So I'm going to come on to the ask if we can follow along and taraweeh prayer though through like an online zoom meeting but no video no you can't okay whether there's audio or video I follow the I have not found proper proof and evidence and I know
some scholars say oh, maybe we can we can you know during this times I discourage it why the prophets Allah we're talking about tada we the prophets that along it was telling us to pray it himself pm at night, right? So do that at home with your family or on your own and don't think that you need to follow along with someone else. Just participating in giveaways on social media for under gambling, not necessarily vision the the Shania, I can't remember how to say her name. But if if you're not paying into it, so if you're not going to buy a ticket and pay into it, then it most likely is permissible, okay. You can ask me that in person inshallah, or later on how do we
effectively manage your time in Ramadan? How do you effectively manage my time during Ramadan spire and I think you're being really smart there. shala So how do you effectively manage my time you start by coming in ringing my doorbell over and over and over and over and over and eventually you'll get me to come out? Am I a bad person? No, you're not a bad person. No one is a bad person. People make mistakes and Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgives, so you're not a bad person. You especially if you're asking this question you probably have hope in your heart and goodness in your heart to do good. So Allah subhana wa tada will grant you a good based on your intentions.
As we stuck in stuck in the lockdowns, Can we borrow money from friends and gives the car?
I don't fully understand that question. Can you borrow money and give that nzqa? Is that because you can't access your bank?
How does the current chapters indexed? Okay, so the plan basically goes 114 chapters and 30 different parts. Okay. Can you give fit on a in a country that you don't live in? Yes, you can. Okay. Yes, you can. So the question
is, why am a class you said that anything that doesn't give you energy won't break your fast so you can. Okay, so in one of the classes that I taught the youth as one of the youth probably asking this question, we're talking about things that break your fast, and I was saying, you know, with regards to vaccines or injections, right, if you're getting an injection, let's say you're having your meningitis vaccine, because you're going to be going for a month. That's not something that is giving you energy, but if you're having a vitamin injection, like a vitamin B injection that's going to give you energy then that would break your fast okay?
It started to become a little mmm in my house, Masjid and it's the best feeling Alhamdulillah hamdulillah it's good. When all this goes away. I'd love to come and pray behind you in sha Allah. Tada. Okay, thank you very much and have one last question. Do I need to say specific words while making my Nia? No, you don't have to say any specific words. Are we allowed to listen to the background music while studying? I follow the opinion that music in itself is how I would encourage if you're going to listen to something to either listen to machines that are just vocals and don't have any musical instruments in it. or
listen to the corner. Right? That's always better. Okay.
Can use split and retire with let's say Florida after Asia and before 200? Yes, you can pray some after Asia and pray some before fudger for example, right or go to sleep right after a shower. wake up early and pray at that time.
How do you do it read the fifth little prayer at home. We'll talk about that when he comes around. Okay, Susie, I'm talking about that when it comes around in sha Allah who to Allah. We did with or around 11 slept woke up around three. Do we cross off the widow by a single Raka and then do voluntary pm prayers and then close off with with him. Okay, no. So if you pray that Misha and then you want to pray you're with her and you go to sleep and then you wake up in the night and you want to pray some more. You don't redo your wisdom. Okay, you don't redo your wisdom. You will just continue praying to God
I can do it on Kaffir as much as you want to pray, but you will not pray another way to your wizard is done already. Okay? It's preferred to delay the width up until the end of the night. However,
if someone wakes up and wants to pray a little bit more and have some time, then they can do that. Okay?
Can you break with your fast with some other foods instead of dates as you can, the profits in the long run it was kind of nice to break as fast with water or with dates, or you know, if you have lemon if you have like some yogurt, okay, can you please arrange one lecture on the second discuss RSP RSP mortgage Okay, use of what I'm going to suggest is go to N Zed f canada.com. ends at F canada.com. There are videos there that will explain all of this from a Canadian perspective. You know, you'll see there my name, there is one of the advisors as well. So I don't want to it's very long to do another lecture on it. It's there already. So if you go in Sharla, you'll be able to
check it out. If not, there is a cap calculation guide. And there's an app as well that helps you to figure out what you would have to pay zakat on and not.
So can we listen to songs without instruments? If it's vocals, then yes, but just tried to make sure that the wording is good, right? Don't listen to things that are really bad and you know, negative.
You can listen to white noise which is like neutral sounds while studying. Yeah, that's a good idea.
You could just ask Google to do that right? How many minimum Raka we can do in 200?
Zero, that's minimum and how can you do it? What time is it thought for us over here it is 722 today if I'm not mistaken, okay. Optimal sleep cycle for Ramadan. There is no such thing as optimal sleep cycle phenomenon. It's optimal or you better cycle during Ramadan. Okay, so it is the optimal worship cycle during the Ramadan that's what's important.
So, aspirant I don't know if you heard that because the screen went blank there for a second. You're asking about optimal sleep cycle during Ramadan? I would say there's no optimal sleep cycle during Ramadan. What you want to develop is an optimal or a bad cycle during the Ramadan.
Right, I know you like that one.
We did wrong then we both woke up crossed with her and did that's fine. If you did it and you don't know the law. That's fine. You'll figure it out.

Can you get a blood test done during fasting? Yes, you can get a blood test while fasting. What about nasal sprays? Would that break your fast? Yes, a nasal spray would break your fast okay. And I see something here that's reading lungs and I want to cancel that question are COVID-19 minutes someone died? Because the COVID is called Shahid, or confusing is that I heard that if you have as many as people engineers, it's good news for the deceased person. But nowadays, only eight people attend what is considered for Okay, so here in Canada, it is 10 people that are permitted. I just lead agendas of someone who passed away of COVID-19 on Saturday. May Allah subhana wa tada Have
mercy on him and his family. I mean,
yes, there's a narration that mentioned to someone who dies of this sort of, you know, death, a plague or pandemic or, you know, something of this sort, then this person would be considered as Shahid because they're in a hopeless state, a loss of power without it accepts them in that way. Now, I know the question is linked to the amount of people that come, but the amount of people is a restriction that is put in place because we are not allowed to gather so much because of the pandemic. But if we were not able to, then I'm pretty sure that we would all want to go and all attend the genomes of the person. Okay. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to
understand the deen I know some of you seem like you're getting upset with some of the answers. May Allah subhana wa tada calm our hearts and make it easy for us to understand and to accept the deen of Allah subhana wa tada bit by bit step by step and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to accept from every single one of us does not come alone. And please remember there's about four minutes left for monthly but then here in Milton, so make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala this is a perfect time to make your Baraka lofi chromosome or any commodity that's why we're better cattle
