And hamdulillah hit of denial Amin salatu wa he was at Abu Dhabi and Kareem. They hit upon a Salah to attend with Aseem rubbish. Luckily Sabri were Sidley, and we looked at him the descending of Cabo colony, my brothers and my sisters sent him radical what I have to warn him about our character.
As always, let my sisters know that if you want to come and sit in the back of the main prayer hall, feel free to do so in sha Allah.
Today in sha Allah, we're going to be going through the six Jews of the Quran, the six see Bara or Jews of the Quran. And in this Jers, we find that sort of money that sought after that, which is the sort of the spread
food is discussed in the soil. So I might choose to talk about food, I might choose not to talk about food, we'll leave that up to the last panel with Allah to decide as we go along because we are fasting. And I know that sometimes it's difficult for us to hear about food while we're fasting but also at the same time, it's good for us to remember and reflect over the blessings that Allah Allah has given to us
right at the beginning of the soil of the Jews
so I'm going to be going straight to the beginning of swans remaining
in the GES despite still having some verses from somewhat often Lisa I'll go right to the beginning of the soil on fact that loss of habitat it begins talking about food and certain animals that are permitted. But I want to go to verse number three where Allah subhanho wa Taala says probably mentality ecoman may tend to watch them well.
He led him up well one funny part one was at
the at one nap we had one okay, there's seven or
eight well those will be higher than no so we were just stock was immobile as
the honeycomb fisco Aloma is a lady like Alfa Romeo the Confederate action was shown early on Atmel to Lokhande men to Article near matter, you want only to local money is the fact that if Bob Murphy must massage in Germany if he lives near
me. So here you'll notice in this one eye, Allah subhanaw taala goes through many principles of things that we see within our deen. He begins by saying forbidden for you are and he names or lists a bunch of animals carrying or are not animals. But yeah, we can say animals types of foods that are not permitted for us to have a forbidden for you, as believers are carrying which is the meat of an animal that is dead. So flesh of an animal that is already dead, that died on its own or was hunted and killed and you find it dead blooded swine, and that which is slaughtered in other than the name of Allah subhanho wa Tada and what was killed by strangling so an animal that was strangled. It may
even be that an animal's neck was tied in between the wires of a fence or something. And as it was trying to get its neck out, it became strangled, and suffocated and died.
Now, these are important principles, I don't want to go through every single one of them. But what we notice in this woman is Allah subhanaw taala, listing out a bunch of thick Messiah in right rulings within the deen as to what is permissible, what's not permissible, and you'll see it throughout the whole Surah right different things and Allah subhanaw taala touches upon food, and what's permitted and not permitted not only for the Muslims, but also for an Akita. That's one of the things that's discussed within the soil. And again, we don't have the time to go through everything, but I wanted to just put that out there for you so that you can go through it and read
it. We always have questions about food, right? We always have questions about one of us who kind of it has made permissible for us and one of the things that we need to do as muslims is to continue to stay up to date with regards to what is permissible for us to eat, and the manner with which food or meat, chicken, beef, lamb, whatever it is, is being processed and what I mean by processed is from the time the animal is alive till the time it comes to our plate. What is the process? Okay, I don't mean like processed meats like cold cuts and salami and stuff like that. But I actually mean the process of sacrificing the animal. How is it being done? And this is because
As I've noticed that in the last couple of years, many of the processes that are being used here within Canada are changing very rapidly. And still stuff being sold under the banner of being had. And I'll leave it to that.
I will make it to that for two reasons. One, because I don't like to talk about these issues in open Settings. And secondly, because it's being live streamed and recorded. And so because of that, we can talk about it off the camera afterwards in sha Allah if anyone has any concerns. However, this is something that as Muslims we need to stay up to date with. However, at the same time, we must say that food which is given to a Muslim by a Muslim,
that is considered halal, so the Muslim is obviously going to serve the Muslim halal food, hopefully, right? We don't need to question that Muslims source of Halal food. If the Muslim is serving us the food and saying this is halal, it's sufficient. I'm not saying you don't have you can't go and ask more. I'm saying it is sufficient Islamically for us to accept that the food that the Muslim is providing for us is hello for us. And if it is not Halon, then the responsibility is on the person who's serving the food and not the person who is being served. Does that make sense?
Does that make sense? So for example, you go to someone's house, and they tell you, or you're invited to my house, and I serve you food, right? By default, you should assume that because I'm a Muslim, and we know each other's Muslim brothers and sisters, that the food that I'm serving you is how that by default. If you
are if I serve you food that actually is not halal, then because you ate it, there's nothing wrong with it for you. It's how that would for you. But it was how long for me to serve it to you. So the sin or the responsibility is on the person who's serving it, and not the person who's being served. Now, a person might say, Okay, I don't know, is this restaurant? Hello? Not Hello. Can I ask? Should I ask? Yeah, feel free to ask, feel free to ask especially if there's no certificate showing that the food served here or no sign that indicates that the food is valid. Now an interesting thing is that you will find restaurants here in the GTA that are had restaurants that are also what's that?
Is LPO LCBO. LCBO is the store right? ello V? Something right? The licensed Liquor Board of Ontario LLP. All right. So you'll find some restaurants advertise their food to be halal, but there's still licensed vendors of alcohol
doesn't go hand in hand. Right? Now, that if you think of it, for many people in other countries, they'd be like, This doesn't make sense. All of the food there's not, not had. And that's because the person who owns the restaurant who's serving the restaurant, technically, why are they serving alcohol as well. But we find that many non Muslims owned restaurants even here in the GTA, many non Muslims own restaurants. And because they know that a lot of the customers wouldn't be Muslim because of the population. You know, the people that live near the restaurants are frequented are most of them, they go out of their way to purchase have that meat or chicken or whatever it is to
serve with their meals, but they still serve alcohol.
Now, if it's a Muslim that is doing that, that's a different story. That's a story for another day. Another topic. But generally speaking, we find that many non Muslims own restaurants and that's the case. Now,
we can go into really deep discussions as to whether it's permissible or not permissible to purchase from there to eat. From there, there's alcohol being served and stuff like that, the best thing is to try to avoid it. That's the best thing. While at the same time, one cannot say that the meat or the chicken specifically this dish is haram because of what else is going on within the facility? Okay, so we have to, you know, as Muslims in Canada, our minds are a little bit more broad than maybe Muslims in other countries or regions in this aspect. I'm not saying overall we are not overall, but this aspect when it comes to food and restaurants and stuff like that, we experience
things that many Muslims and other countries would not experience. Like I know when we were living in Malaysia, even the bottles of water or certified head
even the bottles of water because the process of the you know, retrieving the water from the ground and the bottling process, everything is clean and pure and they make sure there's no contaminants that come in the way therefore they certify even the water has had that and I remember seeing the very first answer if I talk about water, I was like well house, it's just water
The process that it goes through that even the bottle or the wealth that's used in the company's, you know, earnings and whatever investments they might have, that wealth is not tainted as well. Right? So there's a lot that goes through that certification process. And Allah subhana wa Tada knows best. But one thing that I really want to point out in this verse is halfway through the ayat Allah subhanaw taala says, and the OMA committed to an outcome the outcome wanted to learn to RNA come near Matthew orally to make Omoni Islam at the OWASP 100 Dallas's today I have perfect today I have perfected for you. Your Deen your faith, completed my favor upon you and chosen Islam as your
when was this verse revealed to the Prophet son alone were led to some of them
very good. The final sermon, the last football right during the football
of the hedge of the prophets of Allah, Allah He was right, had yet to adapt the hedge which was the first and the last hedge of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He mentioned this idea or this part of the ayah Aloma committed to local deen and today I have perfected for you your deen what it's meant to are an eco net reality and I have
completed my network my favor upon you want to lead to locomole Islam Edina and chosen for you Islam as your way of life.
Were there any other verses that were revealed after this? Was this the last verse to be revealed?
Since a pneumatic lunch with a convener today I've perfected your deen for you.
So were there any more verses that were revealed?
Yes, sir rune says yes. All the way from the back come there.
Anyone else? Anyone want to contradict
scholars in the room?
Okay, so no, this was not the last verse to be revealed. That doesn't make sense now of us saying today I have perfected your team for you how long it's perfect. Done. Like what more is there to do? Well, there were I asked a warning that came afterwards as well. And this is the prophets of Allah either you ascend them showing that now he's done Hajj. every other aspect of the deen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fulfilled and looked after to show us a teach us.
And the one thing that was left was him to go for hedge, sent a lot of ideas, and to show us how to do that. Now, of course, after that point, you know, out of more things continue to come the profits and other ideas. So then went to general art, he went to Mr. Leafa. And he spent his time in the art of as well. He did that though off, right? They sacrifice the animal, he shaved his head. There's so many other things that came afterwards. But from a thick perspective, the Dean was pretty much wrapping up. And this was an indication to the Sahaba or the alumni
that the revelation and the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is coming to an end. Just imagine, put yourself in the shoes of the Prophet sallallahu sorry, put yourself in the shoes of some of the other Sahaba of the alumni are now hearing the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that you think to yourself, Oh, does that mean that he's leaving soon?
And yes, that was the feeling of the sentiment that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to be very soon and it was no longer just a few months after the return of the Prophet sallallahu seven from hedge that he ended up becoming ill and then eventually passing away.
So the longer it was
we can move to verse number six
as soon as I start talking
verse number six inshallah Tada
verse number six, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada continues with the Messiah continues showing us parts of our deen and things we need to do. Now Allah is telling us about who right yeah, Johan leadin. Who either come to us for that info will say no idea come in anymore off at one second will be will always equal more. I'll do that in the after day in the idea that tells us what we'll do is how to perform Google or
Parts of the Moodle that are important and we see four aspects of Moodle here. Allah says yeah, you're letting me know calling out to the believers indicating that this is something that believers do and the believers need to know the non believers will who is not a part of their practice. So yeah, your livina either come to either Salah when you're getting up and about to establish your prayer, right to pray that prayer, focus Cebu hudco of US pilots addresses wash your face. What add a chameleon more often in your hands up to your elbows and of course that's including the elbows. While I'm so good Oh, see, come and wipe over your heads. What a doula come in and caravan and wash
your feet, to your ankles and including your ankles. So these are four things that we need to keep in one, the face, the hands and the arms, the wiping over the head and the feet. Now we elaborate on that by looking at the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu.
He began, of course, performing his withdrawal by washing his right hand, pouring water over his right hand, and then washing his left hand as well. Right, and then beginning his Rudel by washing his mouth, and included with his mouth is his nose. So he used to put water in his mouth and his nose at the same time. So the longer it was, so he would put it in his mouth and his nose at the same time, and snuff it up his nose, and then blow it out, right. And then the face and included in the face is the theory. So if someone's beard is thick, then to run your fingers through your beard. And if someone's beard is small or short, then when you wash your face to make sure that the water
goes into your face, right goes onto the skin of your face as well and you can rub your fingers into it as well. So we see the fine details of the role of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is in his actions, and not specifically mentioned in the verse. Now when it comes to washing the arms, it is not just the arms, it is the hand included with the arms. So sometimes people will go to wash their arms and just wash from here to there. Right, we are meant to wash our entire arm. Now of course the head is going to be wet because we just finished washing our face and our nose and everything right. But that's important to keep in mind. And included in that is the elbow. So we
must go to and above the elbow,
including the elbow, and then wiping over the head right from front to back, from front to back. And then putting the index finger in the ear and the thumb behind the ear and simply wiping the neck is not from the loo of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
contrary to popular cultural belief, right, the neck is not from the window of the Prophet son alone or any person. So going like this behind your neck is not something a Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam will do in his will.
And then after the head and the ears than to wash one's feet, and that includes making sure the water goes between our toes and up to an including the ankles. So above the ankles on both feet, right foot first and left foot now that's what about Tamron because the last time we had it says we're including two gentlemen who were in control our Saturday
will help us to Melissa and untouchable. Fat Am I more sorry than point EBIT FEMSA, who will be will he come? We're at a company, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says and if you are in a state of full impurity, right, condition of Genova impurity, then take a full bath, a full bath means
this much water
and then another
set of this much water, so two handfuls of water, that was how much water the profit center while it was something used when taking a bath.
How much water do we use? Two or three bathtubs full of water at least? I think the average person's shower is somewhere around two and a half bathtubs worth of water.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam use this and then fill it up again and this right, that was how much water used for that. Or wholesome as we say in Arabic oho so right so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he would he would take a listen. He would slowly pour the water over his body and he would rub it in with his hand.
So he would pour the water and rub his skin all over making sure that the water touched his skin everywhere.
So the point of taking a loss or a shower is not to go in there and drown and drench our bodies. I know we do that here in Canada because that's how our showers are designed and also, the
law has blessed us with a lot of water. Right? We have that luxury. There are many countries that don't have the luxury of taking a shower. I know many of my classmates and roommates when I was studying in Medina, they would take a shower sometimes once a week, and I would tell them why it is so much water like Medina Hamdulillah we have lots of water Medina, for those of you that don't know, Medina has under underground rivers that float.
They used to float above the surface of the city. But many, many years back there were volcanoes that erupted in Medina and covered up the rivers. And the rivers continue to flow underground. So there's a lot of water underground. And that's why Medina and the region of Medina right not just the city, the whole region all the way to the Coliseum, right is very rich and fertile, because there's a lot of water that flows under the ground. And that's why we get so many dates from Medina.
Right? Because there's so much water that's flowing under the ground. It's a fertile land, right? There's lots of water. Now.
As I was saying, There's There's many people who don't have the luxury of showering every single day like us. And when they do take a shower, it's a very quick one, like the shower of the prophets of a blogger. It was Sunday just to wash off the surface of the body.
And I remember you know, my my roommates, my first year in Medina, this is going back in 2002.
They would go like because we had we lived in a building and at the end of the hallways were you know, bathrooms on one side showers on the other side. So you go into like these cubicles and everyone does showers right. And so how like, I would go in the shower come out like 10 of my other roommates and classmates are finished their showers by the time I took one shower, like what do you guys do in there like you go, when you come out, you're gonna come out and just like turn on the water, wet their body turn it off. And then they have these like a loofa. Right, they have like a loofa are scrubbing something to scrub their body. And they would scrub their whole body, no soap,
no shampoo, and then turn on the water, rinse it off and turn it off.
Like so quick.
They do this. Now of course you and I like we're very, we're very sensitive and picky to body odor and scents and smells. For them. That's by cost. Like we're human beings. This is how we smell. If you smell Bo, that's normal. We're human body odor, it's the odor, the scent of the body, just like you get into a new car and you smell like that.
What's that smell? It's new car scent. That's the smell that new car smell like. So when you walk past a human being you're a little What's that smell. That's the smell of human beings. It's body odor. Now the profits on the longer it was somebody who would wear perfume to cover up the body odor. Right. Now that doesn't mean that he smelled bad profits, a lot of it was said that the sweat actually smelled beautiful and sweet. Like must be in some of the narrations that are mentioned. Right? So sweet, so beautiful. But at the same time, he would encourage that we stay clean. And that's why we see that we're encouraged at least on Joomla at least for Joomla we take a closer
Right we wash ourselves and clean ourselves. Now how do we know we have that luxury, but at the same time, we shouldn't take advantage of it. Right we should remember that there is wastage of water that does happen. Now if we find ourselves in a condition where we don't have water, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, if you're ill or you're sick, or you're on a journey, or you've, you've relieved yourself, you've gone to use the bathroom, or you've been intimate with your spouse.
And you cannot find water than purify yourself with clean water by wiping over your faces and hands. It is not Allah's Will to burden you. Allah doesn't want to make life difficult for us. Right now you read the love with the HR that they come in how much what can you read to you by hirako on you have to manipulate to it no matter where they go. The handler contest Quran Allah doesn't want to make life difficult. So when we find ourselves in need of making wudu or taking also a bath, and there's no water, very simple. You simply tap your hands on something keyword or natural. Now, six months of the year we have snow outside. So everyone's like Well, where do we find it really? You're
going to dig, shovel the snow away to try and find some sand or soil. something natural. Right? And I asked a question now, if you're finding you find yourself in a very interesting situation
Shouldn't at times you're traveling in an airplane, and there's no water. Or you're traveling by bus and there's no water or you're traveling by train, and there's no water.
How do you make you can't go outside and tap a tree or tap a rock? Or there's nothing? What do you do?
Naturally, you can tap me.
Some people just like tap their own head, my hair looks like grass
so you were looking for dust? Okay? Because dust is natural.
Okay, good. Very good. What else?
Stone, you find a stone in airplane.
If someone brought a stone in an airplane, and they got through security real well.
Very good. Everything around us is made from something natural. Everything. Like even the seat in front of you that's made from polyester. Polyester is plastic, right? But plastic is made from oil. So technically, even that is natural. So when we look into it, we find that Subhanallah we can, we can actually make to him on pretty much anything. But the best is to try to find something pure in its original state that hasn't been processed, like this carpet has been gone through all you know process to get it to the way it is. And the color is in the field and the shape and so on. So we just find anything, right and like our brother did, and a lot of very good, very good to HD was done
dust, I see that there's dust on here, I'm gonna use that. Technically, we don't need to use dust, right, the point is soil or earth or anything natural. And you simply tap it. And if there's a lot of it stuck to your hands, that's a you know, you might be in the desert or you're using sand. And you don't want to rub the sand all over your face, it gets in your eyes and stuff, you could blow it off or just tap your hands together and knock it off. And then wipe your face entirely. And then your right hand all the way up to your elbow and back your left hand. And our and that's it. That's tam simple, super easy. And there's nothing to it.
And this includes and you should you should all know this. Brothers and sisters who are in the hospital, a relative of yours might be in the hospital. A lot of the time they say I can't get out of bed to go make wudu so I'm not going to pray no braider is still fatigued, still compulsory upon you. Even though you're laying in a hospital bed. Right? except in the case that you're not saying you're not able to like reason you're not fully there. Okay, then you are exempted. Right? But other than that even if you can't get up out of it, you should still make Tamil and someone might say but I can't move my hands are they going to cast or something I can't move okay. Then you still need to
pray your prayer even if you just want to blink your eyes for every movement of the prayer. So took me around you think being in sort of two Fatiha you know you've recited and then you go into the boat you blink you come up from report you blink you go into such that you blink it will come up from Saturday you blink seven you blink if you can move your neck right so as Muslims Alhamdulillah Allah made this Deen so easy for us, including saying that Illa Allah
and this is important once again for any relatives or people you know that might be sick or ill or in the hospital, or even at home that are bedridden saying La ilaha illa Allah is so easy, like, think of it how much of your mouth do you need to move just your tongue
you don't even need to move your lips.
Just your tongue most. Look at how beautiful Abbas Panatela designed that phrase, test testifying our belief in Him. We don't even need to use any energy from our body whatsoever. And so at the end of a long day of fasting throughout the month of Ramadan, and you're like oh man, you know what I really don't want to do this and that but you have that killer headache and you're like I don't know what to do and you're just laying in bed. At least lay in bed and just say
it doesn't take anything from us. You just whispering it to yourself and just moving your tongue so easy, so simple. And that's how Allah subhanho wa Taala designed this deed and you see a lot of the design of the deen of Allah subhanaw taala found within this surah if we jump to more verses to verse number eight of sort of VEDA
plus parameter and it says
a Johan Medina
Kuno conga mean any learner you should
be this when you're journeyman a commission,
territory charity, air the
only talk or what
wants to can which it says all believers stand firm for Allah and bear true testimony who told me that he lie he shahada, a bigger pistol.
bear witness of the truth, but speak the truth.
In every aspect of life, everything that you do,
the truth will always prevail. So even the one who has tried to hide the truth
and are they're doing that sometimes with good intention. Like I know, I sometimes talk to people who have gotten themselves into trouble. And
it's reminding me of my reminder after for yesterday,
were here yesterday.
But a reminder after four, you're laying in your hospital bed, and you're hearing that sound.
So, I need a lot of people I talk to a lot of people and sometimes, you know, even inmates in prison, you know, they sometimes might be scared to say something because they're worried some of them might do something right like another inmate might fight them or something of that sort. As Muslims, we speak the truth.
And it's not speaking the truth about Islam alone. It's speaking the truth, generally about FYI. We don't lie. We don't cheat. We don't tell tales. We don't fabricate you know, stories.
The only time and the only thing that a believer can do is if they fear for their safety or something is, you know, concerning to them. You see it in the example of Prophet Ibrahim Ali has set up when the king summoned him and his wife Sama, Salah was his wife, and she was extremely beautiful. And anyone who was married, the king would take the wife and basically keep her for himself.
So when Ibrahim Ali, his setup was asked who is this, he said, This is my sister. He told Zara, out of all the people in his area were the only two believers. So you are my sister in belief, also my sister in humanity, but my sister. And so he said that she's my sister is his wife. But don't we consider our own wife, our sister in Islam? Yes. Right. Everyone is our brother and sister in Islam. So in helping in that this is a time where he feared for the safety and life of Sabra. So he said, This is my sister not lying, but not saying it's my wife.
Right? So that is a time when it can be permissible to use what we call a play on words. Right? And there were other times when people I knew I didn't set up used a play on words or, you know, said something to give a different meaning to it to deflect away from something else. So almost kind of Montana says, Yeah, you will live in urban or corn or Commonwealth, you know, the daddy showed interest when I actually met in a commercial and COVID I'll let you know. And do not let the hatred of people lead you to injustice. People don't like who you are. People put pressure on you, right to be a certain way to live a certain way. Don't let that change you. And you end up doing what it
wants to kind of get out of considers injustice is us displeasing Allah, doing something that Allah is displeasing that we give in to the pressure of society, and we failed to submit to align the ways that he wants. Right. And then he says era de Loup war, acabo INTERCO was fine with rssb Just that is closer to righteousness. Be just
justice will always prevail. Right?
Wasn't handling to either is the one who will hold anyone to account on the day of judgment for things that they took advantage of in this
World. So when we say hey, you know what? Justice What kind of justice system exists in certain countries, right people criticize other countries justice system. What kind of justice is this allow will take justice on the day of judgment. And that's what we need to know and believe firmly that in the end, Allah will reward us for the injustice that's been done against us in every aspect of life above will not let injustice slide on the day of judgment here they will occur with a taco what taco bar in the month of February that will conclude this of us panel dialysis and be mindful of Allah surely Allah is all aware of what you do.
What taco bar in the Mojave room a matter of metal. Be aware and conscious of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's the definition of ESL, and terrible the locker and Nikita Goofy, Goofy, know
that you worship Allah as though you see him. But even though you don't see him, know that Allah sees you.
I'll say that again. You worship of Allah, as though you see him. Obviously we don't see Allah subhanaw taala. Right. And that's, that's what it means. But even though you don't see Allah, know that Allah sees you,
because Allah subhanaw taala is watching and is exactly what Allah says in Allah.
Allah is aware of everything that you do, that Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for us throughout this month of Ramadan to come closer to him through the ayat of the Quran that we learn. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us from amongst those that are honest and true and just mask damage protect us from any harm and evil to make us feel amongst those that stay away from spreading rumors, tales and lies,
which is on a low height on a set of all sentimental
