said Mr. Kumar from reliable better care to Bismillah Alhamdulillah female hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam, ala MV mursaleen Nabina Muhammad Ali of la sala to attempt to slim and beret. I am going to wait for some people to
live log on in sha Allah. I see I have five viewers. And I really want to know if the sound is working well. So if you can hear me, please type in and let me know if you can hear me. I'm doing today's halakhah from home because there's a program happening in the masjid.
yeah, so basically, we won't be able to have our halaqa there. So I figured I would just do it from home for today inshallah, and then we could move forward.
Sound is fine, you can hear me loud and clear Is it is it like it usually is or? Okay, it seems like it's fine, good hamdulillah.
So we're just going to go through, please excuse my notes, I know you can see them in this version. And that's because the camera angle, whatever. That's just the way I have it set up for today.
Today's halaqa insha Allah Allah, we will go through verses,
we'll just going to go through a few more verses of sort of, to hedge, and then we will go through so me known
and sought to know and sought after for con.
And so a shout out.
So we have a lot to cover in sha Allah. And we'll try to do it as efficiently as possible in sha Allah, Allah. If the light is okay, and everything's fine, this is good. I'm liking this, I think I'm going to start doing this from home more often.
So we begin with Surah Al Hajj and we had mentioned yesterday that we began from verses number five to seven. And we discussed how Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the creation of Allah right describes the creation of us human beings and how we are as a creation. And we ended with that yesterday in our Hanukkah, but Allah subhana wa attallah goes on to say,
after he says that, there will be some from amongst us that will be taken early, as in we will be given death and and we will leave this world early. And Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to say in verse number five, sort of to hedge for those that are just tuning in. And among you is He who is returned to the most, you know, decrepit or old age, so that he knows. And somehow that's really interesting for us, because a lot of us will, hopefully a lot of us will experience life. It's various different stages. And the last panel with Anna will also give us old age for those that reach that stage. And what's really interesting about old ages, how Allah Subhana waits and it goes
through all the stages mentioned in verse number five. But we also see the childhood phase how Allah subhana wa, tada brings us from childhood to a young adult to someone who's a little bit older.
You know, we have strength, we're 3035 40 years old, we go through university, we finish that we get a nice job and we start to increase in our salaries, we start to increase in our position at our job, we start to increase in our family, well being etc. So you might notice maybe you got married as a student, and you didn't really have much to provide for yourself and your and your wife, for example, at the time or your husband depending on you know, whether you're a man or woman and you go through those phases and you go through those stages where eventually somehow Allah, Allah gives you a little more wealth. So you start to live a little more comfortably. You may have not had a car for
the first few years. But then attempted a lot you know a lot allowed you to purchase a car through the wealth that he gave you, then you realize that you have a nice home instead of living in an apartment, you might move into a house or you might rent a house instead of purchasing the house maybe you can't afford to purchase it yet. And so your lifestyle becomes a little bit more comfortable, you start to do things in a different way, etc.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us there how you know as time goes on, and things change from the phase in life where you leave early, as in you might be 3035 years old, and I gave an example a friend of mine yesterday was just about 30 years old. You know who left this world Allah subhana wa tada took him back yesterday. You see how you start to get older. And when we get older we return to that childhood phase we start to we start to no longer be able to do things on our own. Like you might go outside in the winter and shovel the snow. But as you get older you can no longer shovel that snow. You need help you need assistance from someone who's going to come maybe shovel the snow
at your house. You know you're not going to go and play ice hockey anymore because you're scared of falling down and breaking some bones and if you do break bones, then those bones
Not going to heal as quickly as they used to when you were 3040 years old, or maybe even, you know, 1520 years old. So Allah subhanho wa Taala changes that situation for us our stages that we go through in life, then you get even older, you're no longer shoveling the driveway, you probably can't even drive anymore on your own. And then you go through the phases where you might need someone to feed you, you're extremely old, where you can't feed yourself anymore. You need someone to feed you, then you go through the phase of you can't use the bathroom anymore. You now need to wear diapers, just like he used to wear diapers when you were young. But now the people that are
changing your diapers are no longer your parents because they're long gone, your children are changing your diapers just like you change their diapers. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the cycle of life and it's really important for us to understand that as as strong as we get and as powerful as you might think you are and as you know, as much wealth as you might be able to accumulate and save and use for yourselves and ourselves. Allah subhanho wa Taala had it still takes that away from us without you know us being able to benefit from it. You might have loads and loads of wealth, but you still need to wear a diaper. You know you still need to have someone wash you
give you a shower and give you a bathtub Panama. And so these are all things that loss of handle which Allah teaches us here in these verses of the Quran.
We move on where Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
After once having knowledge, nothing, right you were given knowledge at one phase at one point in time now you can no longer even speak so Pamela, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect us and grant us long lives upon Amen.
And you see the earth barren but when we send down upon it rain it quivers and swells and grows. You know agriculture grows from the ground of every beautiful console Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us of the creation of the human beings in the earth etc. We move on to verses number 25 to 36
of Sudha to Hajj. And if you permit, I'm going to adjust the camera angle a little bit in Sharla just bear with me, I'll get up and do this. I'm doing this all by myself at home today.
Okay, a little bit better.
I felt like I was slouching a little too much before because of the camera angle. So inshallah this will be better. We move on in sha Allah from verses 25 to 36. Allah subhana wa Taala shows us here
a warning and he warns us against doing evil in Makkah. He discusses the building of the carrabba Ibrahim and he has said he discusses sacrificing an animal and of course this is sort of a hedge. So this surah discusses hedge, the different things that take place the things we need to know about hedge who built the Kaaba, you know, at home and so on and so forth, what's permissible, what's not permissible during Hajj, the sacrificing of the animal, the types of animal and so on all of that, you know, we learn through these verses, and obviously through the explanation and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I don't want to go into too much detail with regards to this.
Because usually for someone who is going for Hajj, we will prepare a hedge course and in sha Allah how to how to do that hedge course. And these are all ideas that inshallah Hosanna will will put together and maybe we could just do live streaming straight from here I'm sitting right in my office at home in sha Allah and we could do this so much easier in sha Allah tada in verse number so we'll move on to the next one shot a lot of data Okay.
The next tool is similar to the Macmillan and we are the believers right Allah subhana wa tada shows us here we are the believers in Allah subhana wa tada and this surah is named after us. This is named after the believers of Allah subhana wa tada in verse number one to 11 of sola to the moon which is the 23rd sorta of the Quran.
Allah subhana wa tada shows us the beautiful qualities of the believers and their reward by the minnow and a Latina whom Allah to him because your own
we're living in a home and in luxury. marleybone We're living in a homeless zucchetti very known when Latina home Lee Fuji him Have you hone in Laila as well to him oma Melaka to a man whom for in Omaha Edelman who mean for many taharah Daddy confortola ecohome Allah hi doing well Ludhiana homely Amana to him or to him Rahman Latina whom Allah Salatu him. Allah salvati him you have your own Allah ecoman very soon
latinity tunel Farah dosa on V Holly doing Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in the first 11 verses of a
sword out to me knowing how the believers have certain qualities and characteristics and the first that he mentioned in verse number one, but after the honeymoon, certainly the believers have succeeded. That is the first quality that Allah Subhana Allah mentions about us, we succeed we succeed in what we succeed in our lives as living You know, this life as believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala had the next life in the hereafter Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, you know shows us that we succeeded because we acquire agenda we enter agenda, we get to see a loss of Hannah Montana, we have our homes, our palaces, we have our family members, our relatives that are there with us and panela
we get to benefit so much from the things that we acquire from Allah subhanho wa Taala simply because we succeeded in this life in believing of Lucha who who are the ones that succeeded, I mean, on and ultimately not to the believing men as well as the believing women. But Allah subhanho wa Taala here just says moon because moon encompasses both men as well as women, the male and the female, all of us together, those that believe from the believing men and the believing women. We are those who succeeded with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then he goes on in verse number two, and Latina whom feasts Allah to him, he earned those that succeeded because they believed Allah subhanho
wa Taala then explains who we are a Latina who if you saw that in those who in their prayer, they humbly you know, are submissive to Allah subhanho wa Taala had who sure and a lot of people ask, how do we get ashore in our Salah? How can I be someone who stands in sada and worships Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, with devotion with concentration, you know, understanding that I'm standing in front of him, sort of how to what to hide that nothing else on earth matters. And all that I'm doing right now is worshiping Allah subhana wa Johanna in the way and the method shown to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this worship was also done by the previous prophets and
messengers of Allah subhana wa etana, they would turn to Him in submission and worship Allah azzawajal.
So Allah shows us for short, now, how do I gain courseware? A lot of people ask themselves, how do I gain kosher in Salah. Okay,
the first thing that we that we recommend for gaining kosher in sauna is for a person to use the bathroom, make, review, and be at ease before they go into their sauna. A lot of the time people will look at their watch, which I'm not wearing today, because I'm sitting at home. And I have four watches laid out on my desk. So right now it is based on the one that's actually set to Canadian time, Toronto time, it's about five minutes to six o'clock. It's 5:55pm. And so we'll look at our watch. And we'll say, Okay, so the time for us has already come and gone. It's almost time for a moment. And just before mclubbe, you'll realize let's say let's say for the sake of the example that
we're about to give right now, let's just say the acid is at six o'clock pm, exactly six o'clock.
And it's 555. But you need to go use the bathroom. However, you don't want to go and use the bathroom because you're thinking to yourself, you know, there's just five minutes left. Let me just pray outside. And after I'm done, I said I'll go and use the bathroom. Why? Because I don't want to go and make a you know, use a bathroom make Lulu again, somehow that's going to take so much of my time. And you know, it might be cold out it might be hot, you don't want to wash yourself, it's all whatever, whatever the case is, we just become really lazy somehow as human beings. So you might think to yourself, you know what, I don't want to go through that hassle. Let me just hold on to
myself as an I'm not going to go and relieve myself even though I need to use the bathroom. I'm just going to hold on to it. And let me pray. My prayer is that prayer going to be a prayer where we're concentrating? Obviously not, it's not going to be a prayer where somehow that we're going to be, you know, fully devoted to our slaughter, you're going to be standing there praying, coming up and
rushing through your scholastically so that you can finish quickly and go and use the bathroom Subhana Allah and that's something that a lot of us do. A lot of us do that and we ask ourselves how can I get Whoa, shorten my saw how can I concentrate to a lesson handle it and it? Well, it's very simple. If you're not focusing on your slide out because you need to go use the bathroom, then that's the first thing that we should eliminate. Go use the bathroom first. Make will be nice and fresh and at ease and begin your sauna. Another another aspect of short inside out or concentration devotion in our sauna that I recommend for everyone is to understand the verses of the Quran that
they are reading. And this is something that I like to do a lot I like to recite in the Salah that I lead in public in you know in the masjid, etc. I like to recite from the rules of record and that I know people understand or they have learned many years ago and so they know the sort of they're familiar with them. For example.
You know, take a child who memorizes sort of to feel the last 10 sutras of the Quran. And they memorized sort of to feel and mtel Okay, without a book having been in the field, when they hear that they're like, oh, Subhanallah I know this surah I know it. Yeah, let me let me listen closely, right? And so you yourself when you're praying, you're gonna recite things that you're familiar with, that you're aware of, and try to understand what you're reciting. Don't just recite verses of the Quran simply because it's all that and I have to. So people come and ask this question, What do I have to recite after sort of to the Fatiha like, is there
specific verses or specific places of the Quran where I must recite No, there is nothing that you must recite or must not recite, recite from Mateus, amin Al Quran, whatever is easy for you as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us whatever parts of the Quran are easy for you to understand or easy for you to recite or easy for you to remember, recite from that. And also what's easy for you, you might say, you know what I know all sorts of bacala. But it's not easy for me to recite that at fauja Fine, then recite just a part of it a page, half a page, a few verses, whatever is easy for you to recite. And so by doing that, you will see that, you know, you'll recite things
that you have more crucial and more devotion, more concentration.
this is the downside to teaching at home. My daughter woke up and comes to my door and my door is locked. And so I have to go unlock the door and she needed to use the bathroom. So
okay, so saying how when you're reciting from the verses of the Quran, and you you you understand those verses you learn them when you were a child, you gain more coursework, more devotion, more concentration in your Salah. So that's important for us to try and focus on and this is, like I said, one of the reasons why. And you'll notice a lot of you who have prayed sought out behind me, I usually stick to the last half of the 30th Joseph, because that is usually the part of the end that the majority of the people know. And if you recite it to them in a way that they will understand it, they will grasp it, they'll feel like Wow, this is so loud, like I'm praying sought out. And and
they'll feel it in Charlottetown. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make that easy for us. Then he goes on in verse number three, when Medina who many lovely more added on, and they who turned away from ill speech. So don't just waste your time talking about things joking around wasting your time or saying things that you just don't need to say, Don't waste your time with things like that. Don't back by it. And somehow this is the month of Ramadan. This is a time in the year where we feel, you know, the hunger inside of us and we feel that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so it's important for us to immediately
remind ourselves when we feel that hunger that you know what I'm fasting and I'm fasting for Allah. And this is something that reminds me to stay away from all the evils that are out there. backbiting, stealing, cheating, whatever it is, we ask Allah Subhana Allah is added to help us. So the believers and those who succeed are those who turn away from ill speech when you are with a group of friends and they're talking about nonsense or they're backbiting others, hello, stop and leave. And so hello, one of the one of the really interesting things in dealing with our communities. You know, I spend a lot of time in various different massages, I go from one cluster to
another, I go from one city to another, I go to one country, from one country to another country. So I've handled a lot of time traveling. And I notice how a lot of people tend to criticize others in the masjid, while sometimes sitting, you know, after Salatu Juma when the topic was, you know, purification of the soul and part of the topic was maybe, you know, not talking about others and not backbiting some handler immediately after Salah, we begin backbiting others kind of like I don't understand how we do this. And but you know, that's just, that's the way we are Subhanallah and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to constantly help us to remind ourselves and this is why in the call to
analog reminds us, and they are those who turn away from ill speech, when we hear others talking about something that we're not supposed to be talking about, we simply move away from it, and somehow we leave, even if we have to leave or we just stop them and tell them you know, please remember we just heard the footnote, this is something we shouldn't be talking about and follow us and that topic right there. In verse number four, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One lettino hoomin is zecca Tifa
and they are those who observe zakaat like they're observant in it, they actually give it 30 Lewin they they are described by a loss of Hamilton as the people who have done it and continue to do it fairly alone, right. They they're known for giving it they're known for giving there's a cup, those other believers, those who reach
That mob loads of the amount that they have to give in Zakat on a yearly basis we ask Allah Subhana Allah data to help us to be from amongst those that payers and give it if it's due upon us when leadin or whom Li Fuji him half even when Allah Subhana Allah combines verse number five and six and that's what we're gonna do is we're gonna combine them.
He combines the meaning and both of them when larina hoon Lee Fuji him
malakut, a nun
Mojave Roman army in a loss of hanaway to hide it says and they are those who guard their private parts, they're the ones whose panela when they're, you know, in a moment where they might even indulge or engage in something that's not permissible. That's how long they completely move away from it. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that protect ourselves and keep ourselves you know, pure for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and for our spouses miniata Bella alameen we move on. For many the DA daddy Kapha ecohome Allah dua and Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to say but whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors as in those
that tried to do what Allah Subhana Allah to Hana
wants from us but they do more, as in they do what Allah is not really pleased with. So you might say, those that give
let me use it let me use the example of sought out those that are believers we know we need to pray five times a day, however, because we want to please Allah subhana wa tada more, I'm going to pray 15 times a day. And I'll say that these are 15 compulsory prayers that I have to pray or even six, someone might say, you know what, I'm just going to pray six because I want to pray extra, or slots of budget, for example, they say slots and fundraisers only to what I counted. So I'm going to pray for that guy for budget because I can stand longer and I could pray more I know Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want that from you. So do what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants and don't go beyond that
will let you know whom they are Myrna to him or at him at our home. And they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive, you promise someone you're going to do something like I said, yesterday, I would do this video. And so I'm doing it and we ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to make us from amongst those that continuously fulfill our word, I mean,
or someone entrusts you with something they give you, for example, I don't know, I'm going to grab one of my watches. And they give you their your their watch. And they say you can use this watch, but you're not allowed to make movie with it on because it has a leather band leather strap. And so even though you're using the watch, you're not allowed to make Hulu with it on because I don't want the leather to get wet. And so the person says you can wear it, you can use it but just don't make blue with it. So you wear it that you go and you make like who cares man making movie with it, they're not going to know it's going to dry. I'll make with it with it. And in five hours, you know,
not even five hours of Pamela within an hour, it's going to be dry already. And they would know they're only going to come back from vacation in two weeks. How would they know that they made Hulu with it? No. Even something as small as protecting the leather strap on someone else's watch. That's an Amana that's a trust that they gave to you they entrusted you with and you need to make sure that you maintain that
for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala first you do what you do for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa tada first as the policy I shared with you yesterday that I tried to abide by and then Allah subhana wa tada goes on and I want to move forward in sha Allah He says we'll let you know whom Allah Allah to him you're happy doing what he can whom will very soon, those who are careful with their prayers and they maintain them. Half if they remember them, they're all it's something that's within them. It's not only something that they remember, it's part of them, it's in their hearts, they conceal it within them. They bring it with them wherever they go, that's saw that
comes with them wherever they are, they're inside an airplane, it's freezing cold, it's winter, they're in a moving vehicle, they're on a bus, they're riding somewhere, they're traveling, they're walking through the desert there, it doesn't matter where you are, somehow you might be swimming at a beach and it's time for sada you come out you pray yourself out, you put your face in the sand, the sand sticks to your face, you get back into the water and it washes off your face of Panama. So wherever we are, we fulfill our Salah with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah wa ecohome worldwide. So those are the inheritors. alladhina de Lune. And for those What are we going to inherit? All of
these things that we just finished covering the lesson handling data shows us those are the ones who inherit What do we inherit in verse number 11, he beautifies it for us and lady in a sad feeling down. So fie pifan II do when they are the ones who inherit an ill fated dose, gender, gender to dose, the highest levels of gender, they will abide there in eternity somehow somehow
Allah as Allah subhana wa tada shows us in these 11 verses Imagine if we just lived by these 11 verses. Right? Of course we fulfill the commands of Allah in in the sense of our Amen. Our belief, we believe that we have to, you know, we believe in a loss of habitat and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we believe in the books who believe in the angels of believing in the Day of Judgment, we believe in the good and we believe in the bad and we follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we fulfill all of that with just these 11 verses of Canada, that would be something where we inherit Jimena Alhamdulillah that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala tells
us in these verses, we move on to verses 57 to 61. Yes, I'm skipping a chunk, because we can't be here all night. We need to head to the masjid soon in sha Allah Tada. So 57 to 61.
In verses 57 to 61, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us and sort out to them, you know, and the description of the people who do good deeds and we're not going to spend too much time on this because we just did in the Latino home. Sorry, which Versa we own 57 Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us he says, indeed, they are, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord and they who believe in the signs of their Lord and they who do not associate anything with their Lord etc. Allah subhana wa tada goes into the description of the people who do good deeds, Allah subhana wa tada explains that for us in verses 57 to 61 I want to move on to verses 99 to 100 verses 99 and 100 of
pseudo mean when Allah subhanho wa Taala says
had a either
a head mo to call Rob BMG.
on me, man, we'll saw the
in Kenny Melton
in a meal.
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here
in verses 99 and 100, of pseudoalteromonas, known how the non believers and what the non believers will hope for when death comes down when death comes to them. And he said, he says in verse number 99, such as the state of the disbelievers Until when death comes to one of them, he says, My Lord, send me back, call it a bit of geralyn. They asked Allah subhanho wa Taala send me back. And somehow, you know, that's really interesting for us to understand that at the moment of death, we haven't even left this world yet. We're still here, but at the moment of death, and I'm going to need to do this.
Because there's an alarm on my phone that's going off. Allah Subhana Allah shows us that when death comes, we haven't even entered the grave. We haven't received the punishment, nothing. But when death comes, those who disbelieve will wish to come back to this earth. Why? Now Holly, Herman will slowly her femur talked, they would wish to come back so that they could do righteous good deeds, in that which they left behind the things that they left behind. They wish they could maybe give sadaqa you know, do things give things away? teach other people, you know, speak nicely, correctly. However, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us no Kela. In Can he meant, oh, no, ha, nah, this is just a
word that this person is saying they're not actually going to do it and let them handle it. And it says, they're just saying that they're that sorry, they are just saying that they're going to do that.
But they're not actually going to do it. That's just something that they say they're going to do. Woman water in bottles up on Isla Yomi or iPhone and behind them is a barrier until the day that they will be resurrected, and the time of the grave. And we'll go through that in sha Allah huzzah Hannah,
one of these days when we study through all the books that are in front of me and behind you, you can't see them. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the life of the grave is known as the bottles. Bottle, which is mentioned there in verse number 100. That is the time of the grave when a person who did good deeds or bad deeds will will experience a little bit of the future to come for them. And so someone who did goodness in this life, they will receive goodness in their grave and this is why I always love to make the dua to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah when someone passes away, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant them a wide open, sweet smelling beauty
garden of Paradise in their grave, as in the grave that they're placed in, is wide open. It's not something that, you know, we learned through the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam will crush the ribs of a person to the extent that their ribs will go like this. That's that's the person who did evils and Bad's and disbelief etc. And we leave this up to Allah subhanho wa Taala we're not the judges, he's the judge. Their ribs will cave in like this. And then Allah subhana wa tada shows us those that believed the grave will be wide, right? It'll be it'll be a time of ease, it'll be something that, you know, they will experience and enjoy it. And they will be able to, you know,
smell the smells and the sense of of Paradise coming their way. It's not the actual scent of Paradise, but it's hints of it that is coming their way. So kind of, and this is why somehow you know, part of being a believer is to wear things like this where perfumes were things that some have a lot remind you of goodness, you feel good. You don't feel bad, because that stinks, right? No, you put on perfume and you feel good. Somehow you're always motivated to do something that's good. Or I know the sisters are gonna say well, wait a second. I thought we're not supposed to wear perfume in or out. You know, you could put on deodorant and stuff like that, that make us feel good. Take a
shower, make sure you feel fresh. Make sure that you're someone who's always motivated to do good. If you're someone who always feels
sour. You're your personality. The other daughter just woke up leaners Okay.
And then when you come
and it is recording and go downstairs she's always watching she's watching
go watch go watch
Sorry about that. Lina just woke up
it's just a bond and that's why we put the we put the girls for a nap at this time so that we can stay awake late. So what was I saying?
The bottles off what was I saying? Let's see if you're paying attention typing and let me know what you were saying.
Hey, sister Donna, you just commented that see if you know what we were saying.
I'm waiting for you. This is where the teacher waits for the students I asked a question and we do this interactively so you type in and you let me know do good. Okay, so we're talking about doing good? Yes, we're talking about perfumes of Pamela and if you can't see it here but I have all these perfumes on my desk. Right all of these little perfumes I got big ones. I got little ones I have all these different kinds and I'll show them to you in shaba this is beard oil that someone sent me that I don't use if you want it as a gift you can have it I don't put oil on my beard. I have lots and lots of different types of perfume here and that's because we need to feel good Subhanallah it's
important in our Deen and yes so remember exactly what I was saying. If you feel like you're someone who doesn't feel good, you always feel grumpy or you always feel like you know you're not you're not you you try and figure out why this is not me. This is not the person that I am but I short circuit on people really quickly very, very quickly. I short circuit ask yourself, do you make blue enough? Do you take a shower enough? Do you put on fresh clothing are your bedsheets clean and fresh. These are all things that we need to ask ourselves because, you know, we when we when we make we'll do five times a day for our salt out we feel good, right and this that's part of our Deen and the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would put perfume on him to the extent that he shadow the lover and she would take their eyes off. Right and she would pour it into her hands and she would rub her hands and put it on the chest on the chest of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and rub it on his shoulders and his chest. And then he would put his garment on before going out. She would rub it right on his skin. So Pamela and you know, she would also take her miswak eyeshadow Viola and she would moist it in her mouth. And then she would put it in the mouth of the prophets of Allah and he would send them to clean his mouth before he left his home. He was going to address the people he
was he was the leader of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we know that we need to feel good and look good and be presentable. And you know very well when you go to a wedding for example, you put on a nice you know, suit or you put on a nice stove or you put on a nice dress for the sisters, you know, have the lovely dress up nicely and they have their own secluded areas. And but you feel good, you feel really, really good. You feel like oh wow, this is not even my wedding day, but I feel like it is you just feel like panela This is amazing. And therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala
you know, wants us to always be people that are good, that do righteousness, and that will that will hammer I feel good and interact with other people in a good way. And I don't know how we went off on this tangent and I'm doing that today simply because we have loads of time on our hands because I'm not
Doing this in the mustard so there's no rush.
Okay, so we move on to sorta to know, okay, so to know,
in order to know, which is the 24th surah of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala begins the surah, in verses number six to nine showing us about Leon. Leon is the accusation of a spouse to the other, more particularly, it's the accusation of the husband of the wife. So the husband accuses the wife of doing something that is not permissible, maybe having an affair or something of that sort, which is really what we're talking about, not something of that sort is actually that sorts, but then somehow they take it back. And this is something that we need to learn in depth. But here Allah subhanho wa Taala shows it to us, that the husband might accuse the spouse using he accuses the
wife, and she might be someone who is deserving of the punishment islamically however, however, and of course, this doesn't apply here. It applies only in countries that actually implement the Islamic laws, but we're just teaching it so that we know, and this is where Allah Subhana, Allah gives the wife the ability to stand strong against her husband's word. And a lot of people say Islam promotes, you know, strength in masculinity, and it doesn't encourage women to have a stance, it doesn't give them their own word, they don't have the ability to speak up against injustices. That's not true. And that's wrong here. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in these verses six to 10. And we need the
explanation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, to understand it fully. It shows us that a husband who accuses his wife of having an affair, she can stand against his accusation, and testify four times in front of four witnesses and say, no, this is not true. This is completely false. And she testifies that it's wrong. And her word stands above his, as in, she will not receive the punishment, because she says, and testifies in front of the in front of a judge, of course, that she did not commit that action that she is that she is being accused of. And the fifth time that she says it, that she testifies that, you know, she's being falsely accused.
That shows that if so, so what of what a woman needs to understand is when she does that, she is proving to the judge and to her husband to everyone else around that. She is saying, I will take my punishment with Allah in the hereafter. And not over here, I'm proving that I did not do anything wrong. And I will receive my punishment later on with Allah subhana wa tada if I am actually wrong. So this goes to show us how a woman can stand strong.
Who can who can actually get herself out of that situation? By testifying and saying, No, I did not do this. And she has the final word, she has the ability to say no, I'm not going to receive this punishment, because I did not do anything that was wrong. And so Islam gives that ability to the wife, to the woman to actually, you know, save herself and protect herself. When people say oh, a man's word is taken over a woman's word here Allah subhana wa tada shows us and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually did this to one of the female companions. She who came in front of him and testified and said, No, I didn't do this. I didn't do it. I didn't do it. I didn't do it,
she did five times. And so kind of I ended up being it ended up
being a case where she did have an affair. But she said, I will take I will take my punishment with Allah, I will leave this, you know, to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala and not receive any punishment here and she didn't receive any punishment. She delivered the child, she immediately you're immediately at that point in time immediately divorced systemically. We need to go through it in detail, but we'll just you know, touch the surface. You're immediately separated, you're no longer married, the marriage is completely nullified. He has to give her the Maha right he has to give her them a hug. It's not like oh, you cheated on me now you got to give it back. No, has to
give them a hug. And even if she did do something that was wrong, she does not receive the punishment in this world. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will take justice on the Day of Judgment for whoever was right or wrong. We move on to verses 11 to 2111 to 21 have sought to know what Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the had the Hadith or if what happened during the time of if which is the time where I shut up the Ummah and how was falsely accused of having some sort of private time with self one even more have been and Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us there that he comes to the rescue of a Chateau de Allahu Allah and protects the honor
of the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So verses 11 to 21. Allah shows us the incident of if and how he shall be a lover and how she was traveling with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and she tells us this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to draw lots so for example,
you know, with his with his wives, yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't have only one wife after he died, I'll be alone, he had a few, right? So he used to, and that's not our topic, he used to draw a lot. So he would tell his wives like, okay, choose one of these. And one of these will indicate which one of you is going to come with him on that expedition when he was traveling somewhere. And so he would take one of his wives along with him.
So they drew lots each one of the wives took one of the one of the, you know, the sticks or whatever was used, and the one that was marked, that, you know, that wife would go on the journey at this point in time, it was a shot of the lung on her. So she says, I got to go with the prophets that along with us on them on this journey. And while they were on the journey, just before they went out on that journey, it was the time that Allah subhana wa went to Hana, Ted commanded hijab upon the wives of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, as if they had to remain fully covered, like, you know, Nicola, or whatever. So she used to travel in her house edge, which was like a kind of like a
canopy that you would put on top of the camel and travel and at night, you'd take it off, it's kind of like your tent. So your tent would be what you sleep in at night. And during the day, when your writing, you place it back on top of the camel, or it would be carried by a few depending on, you know, the situation at the time. So she was inside of there, and they stopped to rest. And she had to go use the bathroom. So she went and don't, don't forget, like they lived at a time when they didn't have bathrooms. And so she she wandered away out into the, into the desert to find some privacy to use the bathroom. She finishes using the bathroom and she comes back as she comes back,
she touches her neck and she realizes the necklace that she had on that was a little bit of a value to her. She had lost it and must have broken and had fallen down. So she went back to try and find the necklace. When she goes to try and find the necklace. She comes back to the camp and she realizes that the camp had moved on. And they thought that I shall do love I'm whoa is actually inside of the house inside of that little tent. And they had picked up the tent. And they moved on with the with the Muslim caravan that was traveling.
Now a lot of people say, Well, why is it that they didn't know I show wasn't in there. Like they picked it up? Didn't they feel that the weight was different. And I showed what the law actually tells us in the Hadith that, you know, it was at a time where a woman was very slender and slim. And they would only eat a mouthful of food. Right? They didn't have that much food to begin with. And so a woman would be slender and slim. And they couldn't tell the difference in the weight. So Pamela she was young. And she was also you know, slim lighten in weight. And so when they picked it up, they they they couldn't tell if she was in it or if she wasn't in it. So Pamela, and so they raised
it up, they put it on, you know, they picked up her heritage and they started to leave, they left. She comes back and she doesn't find them there.
So she says you know what, let me just go to the place where where we were resting. And let me sit there and someone will realize that I am not with them. And eventually they will come back of course the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was traveling with them. They reach all the way back to Medina and Subhana Allah, where's that? Aisha? She's not there. Now, so step one, he comes by Viola. And he had he had stopped, you know, behind the caravan. And this was something that they would do out of
out of out of protection for the
for the for the Muslims that were traveling, so they would have people set that would they would send ahead of the caravan. And there would be people that were lagging behind. In case enemies were coming from behind to try and attack than the person who's traveling behind the Muslim army or the Muslim camp, we should say the caravan, they would see that the enemies are approaching and they would quickly write ahead to the Muslims and say hey, guess what, the enemies are coming up behind us. So prepare yourselves.
So the prophets of Allah and he was one of them, you know, they reach
Medina and they realize that Subhana Allah at the shadow of the Allah and has not there a little time later. Step one enters Medina with a shot of the Allah Anna. He had seen her when he was traveling back because he was the one that stayed behind the Muslim caravan. He noticed that Chateau de la was there on the ground. Lane. She fell asleep she sat waiting and waiting and waiting and no one came and she fell asleep. And she was laying there on the ground, some Hannah law and stuff one comes by and when he sees a hot shot, he recovered.
Nice to her, because when she was sleeping she had removed her veil from her face. And remember we said that this journey was the journey that took place right after a Muslim Halloween tattoo commanded that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam covered themselves. And so when she laid down her face was uncovered, and he saw her, and when he saw that this was a shuttle de la Miranda and she actually tells us, he recognized me from the time that you know, prior to Islam or not prior to Islam prior to the obligation to cover ourselves. He knew what I looked like. So he knew that it was it was me.
And so he comes in, he sees someone laying there and when he sees her face, he says in Nadella, he were in LA had it wrong. He's shocked, because not because she's dead. She's alive. But this is the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ayesha, who was traveling with him. How is it that she's laying in the sand? Like what is she doing in the middle of the desert all alone? What must have happened and so he disembarked from from I believe he was riding a camel if I'm not mistaken, he disembarks and he lowers the camel and she gets on and they didn't speak and they go all the way back to Medina. And when they reach Medina Subhana Allah rumors had spread that they had done
something together that they should not have done together, which was not true. And this is why Allah subhana wa tan and verses 11 to 21 comes to the safety and protection of the lover in the house of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and reveals that she was innocent, and her innocence was proven not by any human being. It was proven by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Like how great is the hot shot of the lover Anna with a loss of Hannah with Allah to the extent that he comes to her safety, he comes to testify, you know, obviously sends the verse down to to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he himself physically doesn't come, okay.
People need to know that I'm seeing a mad face go across my screen. I'm like, Okay, this person doesn't understand. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala protects the honor of a shout out the Allahu anhu and shows us indicates to us that she was innocent. And you know, the incident is clarified and those that spoke about a shadow Viola and how you can read through that there. Verses 11 to 21. Let's move on verses 27 to 29. We have another two pages of my notes to go through. In fact, we have two and a quarter pages to go through.
In verses 27 to 29 of swords to know Knorr Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us?
He says, Yeah, you are letting me know. Let the Hulu Boo.
Boo Boo. Tickle had just had that step. Nice. Oh, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how if we are believers, and when he calls out to the believers, and we want to enter the homes of people who it's not our home, it's someone else's house. So you're invited to someone's house. Do not enter their house until you seek permission from those that live within the house that is best for you. And perhaps you will be reminded, how will you be reminded to handle that someone might come over to your house and they just barge into your house? How would you feel? Now so Pamela, it's important for us to seek permission before we enter anyone's house.
And this is part of our Deen it's part of our religion. And a lot of people say that Islam is a religion of, you know, terrorism and a religion that doesn't respect others and a religion that you know, just imposes itself upon others. No, it doesn't. Islam is a religion that teaches us to handle that ask for permission before we even enter the house of someone else. It's not my home. And I know everyone's gonna say Well, yeah, that's super simple. Like you just ring the doorbell and you walk in No, if you're in someone's home, let's say you arrive at someone's house, they invited you to that house and you say, Excuse me, can I can I use your bathroom and to go to the bathroom, they
tell you Okay, just go down the hallway pass all the bedrooms and the bathroom is the last room on the right at the end of the hallway. So you finished using the bathroom on your way back. You're not to poke your nose into someone else's room. You're not to go into this room and go into that room and see Oh, Mashallah lay there. Oh well Mashallah, look at that. They have a waterbed. Oh, look at the size of their furniture. So look to have a nicer You know, there's some nice decorations in the room. You're not to poke your nose inside other people's business. So some handler it's important for us to to make sure and I'm just moving closely so I could read the responses.
Yes, that's another thing somehow that especially sometimes you know, the women of the house might not be wearing Hijab which is another reason why you know you might go into the bathroom and come out but if you go into another room, there might be the the family of that person in that room and somehow you simply barge into their room you're not you know barging in but you're curious you're going into the wrong room and somehow you end up seeing something that is not helpful for you to see. does not come alone item for for that suggestion or recommendation advice, reminder
We move on to the next verse, verse number 31, which is a powerful verse And Allah subhanho wa Taala here turns the tables because a lot of the time we actually focus on
the, the men and we tell men how you should not be looking at women lower your gaze. And then women say, Well, wait a second, what is it? We're made? Like, we're some sort of a sex tool or something like, men can't control themselves. They're always looking at us. Why is it that Islam makes us feel like we're, we're the problem in society. You're not the problem in society. Sisters, Allah Subhana. Allah tells you here in verse number 31, you sisters need to lower your gaze when you're looking at others. So lower your eyesight, look down, don't and Subhanallah this, this doesn't refer to the to the first eyesight or, you know, the first glance when you're looking at someone to try and identify
them. Nor does it refer to in our scholars go further to explain it. It does not refer to you looking at a woman who you have no desire for, it's the glands of desire. That second glance that's referred to is the glands of desire, when you look at someone and you look away, and they're like, Whoa, and then you look back, you're like, Mashallah, right. So kinda, it's the second glance, which is the glands of desire. That is not permissible somehow, and we need to be careful of that. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala warns the women and so women pay attention because I know that 71% of those that that respond to my posts and so on on Facebook, and my wife is watching right now she's
gonna say, How do you know that? Because it could show us the analytics show that 71% is actually women. So So Pamela here I know that the majority of the people watching are probably women. Here's a good message for you sisters. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in verse number 31
What good lil minute you have not been absorbed when we open the photo. Johanna? Allah subhanho wa Taala shows the women lower your eyesight if you see something from another man, and I know there's a brother who just commented and he's a really really good looking brother, Mashallah, who lives on the other side of the world? And I know sisters somehow if they see a brother like this, they would they would like wow, Mashallah really tall handler very good brother, you know, well off Alhamdulillah. And I hope his wife is not watching as well, because she's gonna say, hey, this isn't right. Why is why is he talking about my husband, but somehow this brother I know for a fact that
his sister see him too. Like, Oh, my gosh, I'd love to marry this brother. I'd love to, you know, some kind of law, he would be a good husband, even though they don't even know his behavior. They don't know his personality. They don't know anything about him. They don't know his bank account nothing, but simply to look at someone and then that second glance here, Allah subhanaw taala warns the women and this is important for us to point out because a lot of the time the brothers and I know the brothers are going to stand strong, they're going to say, yeah, you tell them right. It's not. It's not that the brothers are constantly hunting down the sisters and looking at sisters or
looking at women in general. It's natural human, you know, desires. Allah Subhana. Allah tells us Xueyan and NSE her boost chahatein mina Nisa, for men he created, you know part of our desire to desire women.
And then he goes on, there's a list of things we desire women that's natural men desire women, and naturally women desire men. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that women desire men because he tells the believing women lower your eyesight as well. He goes on in this verse in verse number 31, have sought to nor he goes on to explain to the believing women,
the importance of hijab, the importance of wearing loose fitting clothing more particularly the abaya, which is an outer garment that you wear over your clothing. And so when you're inside of your home, you could wear whatever you want. We're not going to get into details, but somehow when you go outside we need to be modest, both men and women. And this is not only for the for the women, but we know that we always you know emphasize a lot on certain things. And we have to turn the tables always it has to be for men and women. Also, another thing that at the end of the verse how Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us really importantly, while you're good in the arrow, Julie hiner, Li your
lm your feen zenity hiner Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here in the last part of the verse that believing women should not stomp their feet on the ground, revealing their you know, revealing their beauty and a lot of the time you know, what what's being referred to when you're revealing adornment is anklets which is very commonly used even up until today in the Arabian Peninsula, women you know, Arab women love to wear jewelry and one of the types of jewelry that they like to wear is anklets and anklets that usually have little things dangling on them. So when you walk you hear that ching ching ching ching you hear this you know dangling of jewelry. But another thing that one of our
teachers in fact quite a few of our teachers in Medina taught us Is this also applies to high heeled shoes. You know when a woman is wearing high heeled shoes, there's a few things that happen first of all,
You hear this?
Right there walking and you hear that click, click, click click of the high heeled shoe SubhanAllah. That's one thing. What does that do? As soon as you hear that, click, click, your attention is drawn into that person, you might hear someone behind you who's wearing those high heeled shoes and
you're hearing it and you turn around just to see what it is it naturally grabs your attention. Your brain might not even process that there's a woman wearing high heeled shoes behind me, but you hear the click, click, click, click and you turn around just to see what it is. It's natural. That's the first thing. And that's exactly what they want is that those shoes will draw the attention. First of all, grab you to turn and look that way. What's the second thing that high heeled shoes? Do scientists prove this? Okay, we don't need to say that. Oh, Sam is banning the use of high heeled shoes? No, no. What scientists say is that high heeled shoes reveal the form of a woman more than if
she wears flat shoes.
I'm just saying what the scientists say I actually have documentation to prove this right? You can just Google it. Google that and you'll find pictures of how parts of the woman's body are revealed more when she wears high heeled shoes. More particularly, you know my last name, think of my last name, you'll know exactly what we're talking about. Okay, that's that's the first thing that that sticks out more on a woman when she wears high heeled shoes. Secondly, her hips sway more. And when a man sees that, obviously we you know, he's drawn in and why do we do this? Why do we wear the high heeled shoes to make our legs look longer? Not so that we can be taller. Usually it's very rare that
a woman who short wore high heeled shoes because she just wants to be taller is to make make their legs look longer. And we know very well that part of beauty and women is to have long legs panela and so Allah subhana wa tada warns us about these things so that we can protect ourselves, protect ourselves from the harms at the beginning of surah Noor what Allah Subhana Allah discusses, we protect ourselves from that. And here Allah Subhana Allah is humbly you know, showing us the importance of it.
Give me my flash and flat Converse shoes any day, Mashallah flats all the way Look at that hamdulillah our sisters are encouraged to wear those flat shoes. And I'm not saying that wearing high heeled shoes is how long and not permissible. You might want to wear it in front of those that you're allowed to wear it in front of. That's fine. Nothing wrong with that. You might wear extremely, extremely loose clothing like an eye buyer. And even though you're wearing that value with high heeled shoes, no one could see your form. You will sway more that's natural but anonymously or form. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us do whatever is best and most pleasing to
Allah. So we strive for S and we strive to do what is best and most beloved to Allah Subhana without it, and that's what's important here. So I'm not saying that it is hot. Um, please don't get me wrong. I'm saying that it is something that the scholars say, applies to this part of the verse and those that say that this is referring to the high heeled shoes. Yes, they say that you should not be wearing the high heeled shoes outside and some of the scholars even say that it's not permissible to wear alumnos best, we know very well that high heeled shoes is actually very dangerous for the human body. It hurts the ankles, it hurts the toes, it hurts the heels, it hurts the knees, it hurts the
lower back, it hurts the upper back, it hurts the shoulder some panela constantly wearing them for a long time it's actually very very bad for the body. So we asked Allah Subhana Allah to annotate, encourage ourselves and others to help us to encourage ourselves and others to do what is best and most beloved to Allah subhana wa tada we move on. Verse number 35, the parable of light of Allah subhanho wa Taala the mood of Allah subhana wa Tada. And I'll go over this very quickly. You all know the verses. It's very beautiful to recite, but we're going to try and save a little bit of time in sha Allah Tada. So verse number 35.
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here on long notice Semih T, our method ui kemiska. And I'm going to stop there on purpose, because I want to highlight Mischka. Allah Subhana. Allah says that Allah is normal, somehow it will art and his new it's vast, it goes from east to west Subhanallah and we know that it covers the entire Earth. Right? And so handle of the newer of Allah subhanho wa Taala he says method or new de kemiska the example or of his noodle is like a small niche. What is that niche? Look at verse number 36 Allah subhana wa tada says fee boo tin Athena Allahu. And total for her where you've got a fee her is smoothwall where you said be her level fee have been overdue. We
will assault Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in verse number 36 fee boo uten what is the bait? Boo is plural of bait bait in Arabic is a house which houses a loss of Hannah with Ana referring to he's referring to the house of Allah the masjid and here a loss of hope.
Without a tie is verse number 35 with 36 feet Luton, which house the house of Allah go back to the beginning. What is the Mischka mother Lulu de kemiska that niche is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's the mustard. And so the mustard is like the lamp. It has the oil and the oil itself. Even if it doesn't touch the fire, you didn't even light the lamp yet. You didn't like the wick, right? Let me take my miswak you have the wick, you didn't like the wick yet with the fire. But because the oil is on the wick, the oil is so pure and glows so much that its mood expands across the horizons. And similarly that's like the new word of Allah subhanho wa Taala it doesn't even need that. You
know, it has the fuel but it doesn't have the ignition. What ignites it to light up it doesn't even need that in itself on its own. It's vast and Allah subhanho wa Taala without needing anything extra, his new expands. And what is that? No, where is it coming from? It's coming from feeble youth in the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that shows the importance of the mustard.
You know, the other day for Juma has a panel I went off on a tangent and I think because I'm tired during Ramadan or whatever it is the days or maybe it's the month of Ramadan Our hearts are softer and I was explaining the importance of the mustard and House of handle it's important for us to give to the mustard to maintain our massages to encourage ourselves to fund the masjid because our massage it in different parts of the world are funded by the government's right. I was living in Malaysia the massages are funded by the governments. And for the most for the most part, at least in Medina in Saudi Arabia in the UAE and different countries. The massages are funded by the government
so they will give you know there'll be even in Thailand Subhana Allah
even in Thailand on the island of Phuket right on the island of Phuket pH, UK, etc. on that island, which is a non Muslim country, Thailand, on an island where a lot of people go to to just commit to that arm and fitna, etc.
that island, the government, the municipality, the local governments have handled that they give money to the massage to all the places of worship. Every place of worship also has a building that is dedicated to education. So you can use that building for education. Every single mustard has a brand new beautiful building that is built by the government by the municipal government in order to allow those religious institutions to also hold classes or host classes for the children and the people of those faiths, those religions to learn their religion, non Muslim government but they give them the money however here some handle that in non Muslim countries, we need to take care of our
massages. We are the ones that funds the massage we are the ones that need to give in our our wealth Subhanallah in order to contribute to those those massages and maintain them because they are the houses of Allah and from the house of Allah comes the note of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. When we pray our salt out in inside of Masjid al Haram in front of the cabinet, you're facing the cabinet.
The Buttercup of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes down the blessings comes down to the counter but from there it spreads out. Now when you're in the mustard when you're praying you're sought out where's the butter come from? Where is the the rewards coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala you're praying and congregation in the masjid it's coming down to the Imam and spreading from the mmm backwards through the rows back one row at a time and going from the middle of the row outwards. And this is why we form our rows from the middle outwards. In the mustard we form our rows from the mm right behind the Imam we start the rows and then we go outwards. And then we find that email let's say
that row is full the second row we find that Hmm, we start there in the middle. We don't start on this end or this end we start in the middle and then we form the rows outwards again. That's how our rows are formed in the sada in mustard. Now as for the sisters because I know people will say well we're sisters the majority of them watching our sisters Pamela How come they don't get to stand in the front row? How come the rewards come from the front row for the brothers and the sisters or all the way in the back? How is it that they're going to receive any of the rewards Allah subhana wa tada is not you know
Allah subhana wa tada is why is wiser than us. Don't think that a lot doesn't know this. He knows the best place for a woman to pray her prayer in the masjid is in the last row in the very back the last row. Why? Because we've made a mistake in our message of these days. I'm sad to say sorry to say it and that hamdulillah today we're not teaching in the masjid because usually in the massage, there's a pure partition between the men and the women. They'll miss the mustard of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begin at the very sorry, it had no partition and the women would begin the rows at the very end.
Back of the mustard. Why?
Because the back of the mustard is where the wall is. Right? That's the end of the mustard. There's no one behind that. And so when a woman you know bows down and goes into the court goes into surgery, there's no one behind her. No one there to look at her, her sanctity is protected her, you know, there's there's modesty in her soul Alhamdulillah. And she's protected and Islam protects her even in her prayer, we don't want anyone to come in and to harm our women. So they're in the back, they're protected in the backward, no one is 100 in love, no one's going there, all the hustle and bustle is in the front. And we keep them there and the back rows are the safest. And then on the
back rows is where the the the blessings come to the more reward and then the rows moving forward. So it's the opposite for the women, the rows from the back are the are the rows that are most beneficial. The problem with our massage and today is we have a men's section and a woman section.
And the man is up here, and the men start to fill the rows this way going towards the back. And then the woman section starts here going towards the back. And when women come into the mustard, they come into the front rows of the masjid and they make the rows going towards the back.
Technically, there should be no barrier here. The women should also feel part of the congregation but not have the wall between them. They only have space distance between them. And so the the rows of the women begin at the back. And that's why they will stand at the back and the women that come in can walk in front of those rows, people are asking, how is it that you can walk in front of the rows. When you're praying in congregation you can walk in front of the rows of everyone men and women, it doesn't matter. The only person you cannot walk in front of is that Mmm, that's it. So you can walk let's say you break your boo boo. And you need to leave the Salah, walk in front of your
own go right to the end of the row and get out leave the masjid don't go through the back and break every single aisle trying to find your way you know, digging through this crowd of people just go right to the end of the row and Subhanallah leave through the door on the side if there's a door on the side or on the ends of the rows usually there's a little more space, just go out the backs, you know go out the back by using the end of the rows. And so somehow that's important for us to learn these little simple things in our Deen that we forget about and the mustard itself is the place of move. This is where Allah Subhana with Anna's noodle shines from and you'll see that there's these
little niches everywhere and every little in every city even the massive cities these little massage it everywhere. And that's where the note of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes from fee boo tin Mischka. They link together Allah Subhana with Allah is a niche of nor is the masjid in the city. You have a massive city a little nested here little mustard there boom new radiates and comes out everywhere from the massage it we move on in sha Allah Tada. Actually, I'm enjoying teaching from homes Panama.
Let's move on to verses 43 to 44
in verses 43 to 44
in verses 43 to 44 loss of data shows us the power in the creation of the clouds. And I'll just read through the English Do you not see that a lot derives the clouds as it drives the clouds and we see that when we look at the clouds we see moving in the sky they're moving now
okay, but don't bang on the glass cable you mean to disturb
my daughter's are watching and i have glass doors so they're standing there watching me through the doors. I would let them in but then they're gonna start touching things.
Okay, so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the power in the creation of the clouds in verse number 43 have sought to know what Allah subhana wa Jalla mentions. Do you not see that a lot drives the clouds like who makes the clouds moves and move in the sky. It's Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then he brings them together. We see clouds coming together. So kind of like the other day just last night there was this video circulating on the Internet of a cloud,
blocking the rays of the sun and the entire sky over the Kaaba overmuch is completely completely clear. There's no clouds, but there's one cloud blocking the sun that's shining down on muster, they'll hold on shining down on the counter and the people making the off and people make videos of that go to chef Yeah, Ibrahim's
go to his Facebook page. I believe he posted it up there. And I think he posted it on Instagram as well. You'll see it there on chef Yeah, but on him someone is sent it to him and he posted it up online.
You can see how the cloud is blocking the sun's the sun's rays from the people who are making the law from you know that's the blessings of Allah Subhana wits and it's really hot, really difficult at the end of the day you're fasting as well.
Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala shading the people that are performing so often we ask Allah Subhana Allah to provide a similar shade for us on the day of judgment when the sun is shining down extremely hard, he provides a shade for us. And we know that this is glad tidings for us to Jenna in sha Allah, I mean, now,
Allah subhanho wa Taala then says he drives the clouds, then he brings them together, the clouds come together, then he makes them into a mess, they become thicker and thicker and thicker, and then you see the rain emerge from within. So the rain starts to come from the clouds, so there's moisture in the clouds, and he sends down from the sky, that rain comes down, but sometimes it comes down mountains within which is hail. So the clouds come really really thick like mountains hovering in the sky. And when you think of it somehow if we were to take all the hail that fell from the sky and lift it up, put it in one container and lift it up. Imagine all of that was contained within the
clouds somehow, all of that was there and the moisture had gathered and frozen came down. And Allah subhana wa tada brought it all down, and he strikes with that hail. Now this is an important part of the verse Allah subhanho wa Taala says he strikes with that hail those on the ground who he wills right some of them it hits them as some of them it doesn't. And the flash of lightning of its lightning almost takes away the eyesight. It's so bright that it's in the middle of night like Whoa, it's like a bright flash. You know, someone with their massive camera just flashes you in the eyes and like, well, I can't see anything until my eyesight is regained. Now what's really important to
understand here is Allah says that that hail will hit people who he wants and those that he doesn't want to hit, it won't hit. Imagine that the next time that rain falls on you a law prescribed for that raindrop and those droplets that fall on you or the snow that falls on you or the hail that falls on you. A law prescribes for that to come to you and only you no one else.
It's just like you're walking through the park the other day we're walking through the park.
There's a high school here that I teach at ISNA. It's no High School and some kind of law. You know, those students are awesome. They actually went on this. They had like a barbecue at a park a picnic at the park and my family and I we went because I teach them they invited me to come down for the picnic, so we went just to spend a little bit of time with them. And when we got there some had a lot of this bird flying in the sky poos and the food falls on my wife's head. She was wearing her hijab right fell on her head and she's like on a bird pooped on me so kinda you know what I'm like cleaning it and I know she's watching this right now she's like, I can't believe you're telling
people this right? But somehow that fell on her head. That was from Allah subhana wa tada like imagine it could have fallen on my head. It could have fallen on the ground. It could have fallen anywhere but Allah subhana wa tada wanted that bird to do its business and to fall on your head, some kind of law. So the drink the rain that falls you know the snow that falls the hail that falls from the sky. Whatever happens to us even the smallest thing you might be looking outside you see, you know, you may have received this beautiful bouquet of flowers from your husband and all of a sudden in the first day, one of the flowers not even a petal of the flower one of the roses just
breaks off and falls down. You're like oh my god, you just bought it for me what happened that Allah subhana wa tada wanted that to happen. He wanted that to happen. So somehow we learned about the greatness of Allah subhana wa tada here. For those that are just tuning in right now.
I'm going to remind you again, our mustard is hosting a multi faith sort of gathering. And it's thought today with various different
religions, people of different religions. So they asked me to not have the halaqa in the mustard today that fcf class so I decided to simply do it from home at a time that was not simultaneous to the event that's happening in the masjid so that those that attend in the mustard they can also attend over there and benefit from that as well. That's why I'm doing it earlier. So those that are doing it earlier.
That is why I'm doing that. And I don't want the two to conflict so that those that attend the Hanukkah can also go to the masjid and attend which is starting now at seven o'clock anyways, but I'm going to continue We have no time constraints and chama Hollis, we will move on in sha Allah hota Hana vs number 58 to 60 versus 58 to 60 of soda to newer. And I know some of you like to type in which versus recovering now. So type in verse 658 to 60 of soda to north. A loss of Hannah Montana shows us here three times of privacy. Remember I mentioned that as believers we need to step in we need to ask, is that nice right? Ask before you enter the home of someone else and get
permission before you do that here Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us how to deal with our family members who live within the house that we live in. So here he shows us permission that needs to be sought in three different times of the day before entering a different part of the house. So for example, let's read it unless somehow
with Anna says in verse number 58
Oh you have believed Yeah, you're Latina I'm gonna let those when your right hands possess and those who have not yet reached puberty among you ask permission of you before entering at three times so Allah subhana wa tada our time we don't have slaves we have maids or servants not here in Canada I'm gonna have no major servants we can't afford it right? But I know like in, in Malaysia where I used to live people have maids they have people that help them around the house people have gardeners, they have chefs, they have cooks, etc. When I was in South Africa, Subhana Allah, you know, people have
people that help them in the homes, maids, etc. that will serve them their food and so on cook it is beautiful. It's kind of like this is you know, those that allow had blessed to have that and have the ability to look after other people, provide a job for them and also keep them in their homes and feed them good food and take care of them. That's a blessing from Allah. But here Allah subhana wa tada shows us that you have servants, maybe within your home, and you might have children who have not reached the age of puberty, teach them that there are three times in the day three times where they have to seek your permission before entering upon your rooms or entering into your rooms. For
you have two children, right? There are three times that Allah Subhana Allah mentions, if they want to enter the room of their mother and father, they have to ask permission before entering during those three times. Those three times are mentioned here in the verse, Allah subhana wa tada shows us before the dawn prayer, when you set aside your clothing to rest in the afternoon, which is the Lula time, and the Knights prayer after the night prayer, which is after a shot. Now you'll notice that these are the three times during the day when someone will go to rest, someone will go to rest or someone will just be in the privacy of the room. And and we know what happens in the privacy of the
room of people that are married, right? So we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make those youth that are watching understand this capacity that their parents will not be upset with them.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here.
The first time is before the dawn prayer before fudger.
Now before funjet is a time where you know you're still in bed, you're getting out of bed and you might want to have relations with your spouse. And so Allah subhana wa tada teaches us that our children and the people that serve us inside of our homes, whether you have a maid or a servant, etc, they should never ever enter upon you at this time. Because it's a time of privacy a time where you might be you know with your spouse alone and you don't want to be disturbed. That's the first time the second time is when you set your clothing aside as a loss of time without dimensions to rest at noon and this is the A Lula time. Usually in the afternoon we take a Lula today in Spain in
different parts of Europe it's still being practiced also in in Medina when I was a student when I went there, they would take a Lula in the afternoon which is the afternoon siesta, what we call a siesta, a nap in the afternoon. And now's like why do people sleep in the middle of the day? Like we can't do this. It's strange. Like how are you productive if you sleep in the middle of the day, this panel you realize, especially in the hot climates, you feel re energized if you have a simple 1015 minute break or you're just resting you're not sleeping but you're resting. You just you know you relax, you rest. You take off your formal clothing, right that's why Allah subhana wa, tada shows,
as you remove your clothing, you set your clothing aside, you were at work, maybe you come home to take a little siesta, you're not going to take a nap in your suit, you're not going to take a nap in your clothing that you wear outside because it's going to get all wrinkled, you're going to need to iron it again. And so a lot of handling data shows us you put your clothing aside, you take a nap. That's another time of the day when our children or our you know, maids or servants whoever's with us, should not disturb us. And the third time is after the night prayer, which is obviously after you know that a shot and you go to sleep, you're at home in your room, as husband and wife. And so
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how beautiful you know, our Deen is that we actually seek permission from those that we live with in our home before we enter the room so that they can have privacy as well. Right and that's that's important. That's part of our DNA.
Three times a pregnancy for you as a loss of Hannah with Anna says and then he says there is no blame upon you nor upon them beyond these periods. So any of the other times of the day, if you're doing something and they come in and see that you're you know, you're doing something that you wanted privacy but they walked in, because it's not one of these three times it's okay there's nothing upon you. Just you know, seek forgiveness from each other and ask Allah subhana wa tada to forgive you. Excuse yourselves and leave and that's it. That's the end of it. So Pamela, and look at how our Deen goes into detail and a lot of people say, Oh, you know what, don't talk about this.
Don't say this. Don't say that. Our Deen teaches us this stuff. We need to learn it if we don't learn it. So kind of love. We're restricting part of the deen. We're saying oh because I feel this is a taboo topic.
Not you know capable as an adult to talk about these topics. I'm not going to talk about it. No, we should talk about it. This is what I lost handle with Adam mentioned for us in the Quran. What's wrong with it? We're not allowed to speak about this. So
yeah, let's move on in sha Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala then also mentions
You know, there's nothing wrong if they no blame upon you for they continually circulate among you. So your maid might come in and out of your room regularly to maybe put your clothing do your laundry, whatever it is, your children will come in, you know, and play and so on. There's nothing wrong with that. That's a lot makes clear to you the verses and allows all knowing all wise, let's move on in sha Allah Tada. It's very hard to speak at this time of the day for this long. So I'm going to pause for a moment if you don't mind.
Okay, this minute, let's move on. We've been going for an hour and 20 minutes and we will continue Remember I said I want to catch up
from where we left off. So Allah subhana wa tada shows us now in Surah Al Furqan.
In surah Furqan.
Actually, there's another point that I that I forgot to mention that we left out, we only covered verse number 58. And I said verse 58, to 60. It goes on to show us how Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us that an elderly woman, a woman who's gone through that stage in her life, the midlife crisis stage, right?
She's past menopause.
At that point in her life, she's not really you know, she's not seeking young love or anything of that sort. And this is why we see you know, our grandmothers some kind of law, sometimes they're not wearing their hijab as properly as they should be wearing it or as properly as a woman should be wearing it. And that's because Allah allowed them to do that. A lot allows them to not be so picky in the way that they cover themselves. If they don't want to wear they don't feel comfortable, it's difficult for them to wear their eye by an outside. There's nothing wrong with that Allah subhana wa tada discusses that here. And we learn it through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam an older, you know, man or an older woman doesn't need to be as particular because those emotions, those feelings, that's, you know, drive that's inside of them, you know, the sexual emotions that are constantly stirring inside of us are no longer there. They're not as strong. They might still be there, but they're not as strong. And so Allah subhana wa tada says, you know, you don't have to be so picky with this. Now, I say they're not as strong because they're still there. I remember when I was a student in Medina, I went to one of our teachers house and this teacher was at two years old.
And I went to his house and Pamela Medina, and he lived right next to mustard and
his home was so simple, but when we went in, he had a he had a little daughter, and she was about two years old, just learning to walk, how about, you know, walking, stumbling here and there. And this Daughter of his was not even two years old yet. And remember I said he was 82 years old, and they had a child Subhana Allah so Allah blesses whom He wills with children at an age
that most of us would think they can't have children anymore, but Subhanallah he still had children, even at the age of, you know, 80 years old, his daughter was born Subhana Allah. So that's something that Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us You don't need to be as picky or particular particular with it. However, it is something that if you can do that's good for you and could be better. Let's move on to sort of three four con in sha Allah who tada we have a little bit more to go so let's go for con verse number one Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that the for con, also known as the criterion is the Quran, which was given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. For con means the criterion
that's which is given to govern and show you the laws and how you're supposed to live. It's our user's manual, it's our users guide. It teaches us how to live as human beings. It is the Quran in verse number four to six, Allah tells us what the machete Coons say about the Quran. So he goes into detail showing us what they say about the Quran, we're not going to go into detail because you know, you could just read through it on your own what they say about the Quran. And then in verses number 17, to 19.
Sorry, seven to 14, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how they mark the profits on the longer I think he was sending them for being a typical men who eats who does business etc. He's just another human being. He's a typical men, and they're mocking the profits in the long run and he was sent them for being a typical man who eats who does business etc. But that's why Allah chose him to be the Prophet. And Allah sent prophets and messengers who were human beings and this is what Allah subhana wa shows on, that they were human beings just like you and if they were capable of living this way
Then you are as well, because if they were not human beings, okay, I have only a few minutes until the end of the live session, I think we're only allowed to do an hour and a half of live session. If I can renew it, hopefully I will. But let's see, I never knew that there was a time limit on it. So Allah Subhana, which Allah said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a human being to show us that he was capable of living this way, we are also capable as well. So he's not an angel. He's not some superhuman, he's a human being just like you and I, in verses 17 to 19, the gods of the mushy Kuhn will disown those people on the Day of Judgment, those that worshipped Gods other than Allah
subhanho wa Taala. Those Gods will disown their
followers, those that worship them on the Day of Judgment, a simple example people who worship pious people that passed away who are dead in their graves who never ever asked a single person to ever come into worship them, but people worship them on the Day of Judgment this then before last kind of without its I never asked these people to worship me. I never asked them to worship me, right? So how are these people worshiping me? It wasn't me and some kind of law we see the example of Isa Allah Hassan Prophet Jesus, right, we say prophet because as believers as, as Muslims, we say that Jesus was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He was even asked by Allah subhanho wa Taala, if he
ever told the people to worship him, and he said, No, I never asked the people to worship me. I am nothing more than someone who delivers the message to them. And I never asked him to worship me. And so those that worship Jesus, let them know that Jesus Himself himself declared that he never asked the people to worship me. In verse number, move on to verse number 25 to 29 have sought to report on Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the severity of the Day of Judgment,
the severity of the Day of Judgment.
And you could read that on your own but I'll read through a bit a bit. Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
I know it's gonna cut off soon. Why oh, Chuck was semma Allah subhana wa tada says and mentioned the day when the heaven will split open with emerging clouds and the angels will descend down in successive descent. True sovereignty that day is for the Most Merciful and it will be upon the disbelievers a difficult day. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes
the the day of judgment
in verses 32 to 34, the wisdom in revealing the Quran in stages as mentioned, by Allah subhanho wa Taala and how he revealed the Quran in stages on purpose. So people used to mock the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and say, why is it that your God did not give you this entire Revelation the book itself in one chunk? Why is it that you know you only received part after part after part and that was the wisdom of Allah subhana wa tada he did that on purpose, so that we can receive the Quran in stages that we can actually practice it upon right practice upon. So imagine if Allah gave you today as a new Muslim, all of the Quran and it says here you have to do all of this today. You
accept Islam as a struggle in the lower echelon of Muhammad Rasulullah now you have to worship Allah subhana wa tada and the Imam says, By the way, because you accepted Islam today, you need to fast you need to pray five times a day you need to pay yourself out because the month of Ramadan is a month when everyone usually pays there's a cap, you need to go for Hajj Next, you know, in two months, which is coming up. So you need to have enough money for that. You also need to believe in the Day of Judgment. To do this, you need to do that you have to do all these things. And the person's like, Whoa, this is way too much to handle. How am I going to do that? This is why Allah
Subhana which Allah revealed the Quran in stages one stage at a time.
I'm going to stop there because we have a minute left. And I want to say that I will resume the live session. Because this ends and I believe I can start another session. Hopefully I hope Facebook doesn't limit it to an hour and a half in one day. But I will as soon as this ends, I will resume because we have a lot to cover. And if I don't get to cover it, what I'll do is just after midnight after telawi insha Allah, I will go through the rest of it inshallah. Hopefully, hopefully that works out. But I am hoping that we can simply start the live broadcast immediately. And I'll do that right now. Just give me a minute, it will stop and I will do the continuation does that come along
I'm just gonna let it run out and see what happens.
So for those of you that want a tour of my office, this is it. And if you want to see what's happening, it's a mess. I don't want to show you I'll show you another time.
