In or Salawat Allah He was salam where I learned to be healed Karim Ali of total Salah to attempt to slim rubbish shortly so the way a silly Emery Wahaca melissani of Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters a Salam or Aleikum, wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Today is Sunday, November the seventh 2021. And we continue our essential thick class which insha Allah to Allah, we will actually conclude in a few weeks in sha Allah, and then we'll start a new topic. So I'm gonna have to do a survey with all of you to see what you would like to study, but I actually have something in mind. So I'm going to make you feel as though you have an option, but technically you don't
know I'm going to do Sure, I will do shoot out with all of you because you never know, the way the way Shura works is or Mushara is that we ask those who are you know, involved in something and those who can provide, you know, valuable sort of input. And then we make a decision based on that. And sometimes there's heightened Baraka in it of course, there is baraka insurer, but sometimes the person or people making the decision, miss out on something and the advisors give good input that actually helps to grant clarity and assist in you know, helping to figure things out a little bit further. So, in sha Allah to Allah in a few weeks, we will be switching to a different topic I know
we we've been studying essential, thick, and there's two things that I really want to focus on moving forward in sha Allah, first of all, there could be the option of studying a specific mazahub. So instead of just taking general FIQ, then maybe specifically going into a certain mazahub, like studying one motherhood at a time, we can go even deeper infec which I don't think is something that every single person wants to go through because that, you know, sometimes can be a little bit heavy. For the average person. I think that's usually something that's more for you no more serious students of knowledge. Another thing that I really want to focus on is to start studying a little
bit more about the foundations of our deen like principles of our faith. Okay, one of the things that I studied in Medina, in fact, my degree was in Dawa, and sort of Dean from the Faculty of downwind sort of Dean, so So the dean is the foundations of principles of our dean, and what are the what are the core key components and elements of our belief as Muslims, what do we need to study? What do we need to know? And how are we supposed to behave and be based on those principles and core elements of our faith.
And when I went to study in Medina,
as soon as I started in the faculty, and I remember, it was actually a mistake. It was a mistake on the part of the university, they put me in that they registered my name in the wrong faculty, I had chosen a different faculty to study in and my name ended up mistakingly being in registered in another faculty. And I sat through the first half of one semester.
And my name never showed up on the classroom, you know, attendance sheets, because little did I know and no one knew why even at the at the main office and the faculty office and the teachers and professors had no idea why my name was not showing up there. It just turned out that
I was registered in a different faculty. And so the clutter of Allah subhanho wa taala, I was forced to go and sit in the Faculty of their choice as in the mistake that the university made. And when I got there, I started to realize I prefer this faculty. I prefer studying this I prefer studying the key components and elements of our deen because that's really what we need in our lives. First and foremost, before learning the fic aspects of things we need to know more about Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to understand who we worship we understand how we worship we understand when we worship, where we worship, what is worship, right and so on and so forth. And so it was a blessing
from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada you know, you say a blessing in disguise. Well, it really was a blessing in disguise from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. You know, sometimes you push hard towards something, thinking that something is good for you. But Allah Subhana Allah has a different plan. And that's exactly what happened to me. I sat through one in half of a semester at the Southern University of Medina when I finally finished my Arabic language degree and entered into the the bachelor's level to do my, you know, my bachelor's degree. I sat through half of that semester in the wrong faculty, which was the faculty of my choice, but due to their mistake, I was forced to go in and
Sit out the rest of the semester in the faculty that actually ended up being the faculty I wanted to be in because I just enjoyed it. And that was a faculty of darwino sort of Dean. So studying the foundation of our dean is something that I feel every single one of us needs to know. And being someone who's born and raised Muslim here in Canada.
There were a lot of things about our deen that we just that I didn't know of, despite being one of those students who, you know, whose parents always brought them to the masjid and learned, you know, to read the Quran in the masjid and studied for some time and a mother I saw, you know, when I was 1314 15 years old.
There were so many things about Allah subhanaw taala and about the foundations of our deen that I did not know of, and I was just so amazed by it when I went to Medina and started to learn more about the Oneness of Allah subhana wa, what to add, and so inshallah Tada when we're done, you know, the remainder of the chapters in the book of fix that we're studying. In a few weeks Inshallah, uh, my plan is to start focusing on learning and teaching the foundations of our deen. Okay, because when you think of it, that is really something that we don't teach, or you don't really find many masajid teaching that right, you don't find many masajid teaching it. And it's so important for us
like if we don't understand Allah subhana wa Tada, how are we worshiping him?
And if we don't understand Allah Subhana Allah, how do we know what
to submit to and what not to submit to? Right and so many different aspects of life that are mentioned in the Quran? You know, we need to focus more on that. So inshallah Tada. That's my intention. But for today, we're going to continue with criminal offenses, criminal offenses. That's what we're going to be talking about for today in sha Allah Tatta. First off, criminal offenses refers to all of the crimes that one commits towards others. Okay, so I always like to say that the greatest crime that any human being can commit is the crime of Schick because really, according to Allah subhanho wa, tada. You know, when he calls someone like a magician, or someone who was a
criminal, he's referring to that person as one who does not submit to Allah subhana wa Tada.
But there are, there are crimes against Allah, there are crimes against humanity, okay. And we spoke about crimes against the loss of Hanoi data. And we continuously do, because crimes against humanity go against what Allah subhanaw taala has legislated upon us as human beings and as Muslims. But again, remember that the message that comes to the prophets and the messengers, that is, you know, delivered from them to the human beings is not restricted to the Muslims, or those who follow those prophets and messengers, the message that comes whether whatever scripture whatever book that came to the messengers of ALLAH SubhanA, Allah, the prophets
is for all of
all of the human beings, all of humanity, right? All of mankind, whatever word you want to use, right? All people,
all beings, right? And so the message is clear and for everyone and not solely for Muslims, okay?
Muslims are those who embrace the message, submit to Allah subhana wa Tada. That's why we're called the Muslim, a Muslim is
a person who submits right to Allah subhanho wa taala. And a mock Minh is a believer, one who believes in Allah Subhana Allah, someone could be a believer, but not a Muslim. Because they believe in certain things, but they refuse to submit to Allah subhana wa Tada. Right, a person says, Yeah, I believe that, but I don't care.
Right. I don't care to pray, I don't care to worship Allah, I don't care to do this. I don't care to do anything. I believe these things, but yeah, whatever. It's just belief, right? So a person might believe and not do anything, not submit.
And then a person might submit, but not even believe. Right? And of course, now we're getting into the happiness aspect of things. But when we bring it back to what we're studying for today, criminal offenses, a criminal offence refers to all of the crimes that one commits towards others towards another human being. And they are various different types of crimes, right? All of them can be combined under a general heading criminal offenses. They could be crimes against another person's life, or another person's limbs, right? It might be a crime against a person's life as in someone harms another person to the point that their life is taken away, or someone harms another person.
To the point that a limb or a part of their body is harmed,
they could have occurred intentionally or mistakenly. And in Islamic law, it refers to aggressions against another person or another person
that requires retaliation or the payment of money require some sort of punishment, some sort of,
you know, legal
punishment is placed upon that person. And of course, we as human beings who live in a society, we don't take action in our own heads, we are not the ones who go about this. Those who have legal authority are the ones who take legal action against others who have committed crimes. But also within Islam a payment at times could be made or maybe needed to be made. Okay? Like for the in the example of a like blood money, right? We call it blood money. DHEA right. DHEA is blood money if someone takes the life of another believer for example, unjustly then there may be a punishment that is given to that person specifically, but that person also needs to pay a sort of fee or fine to the
family of the person who they had harmed. Okay, we'll look at that later on. Inshallah Tada. Let's take some evidences from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Muslims lives are sacred. We learned that in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well as within the Quran. But even more specifically in the final sermon of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right the whole battle wydad The final sermon of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he conveyed and and,
you know, announced and delivered in Arafa during the
last Hajj, the farewell Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah subhana wa Tada also tells us in the Quran in
surah Nisa, verse number 29 and 30 Okay, verse number 29, and 30 of Surah An Nisa ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, are the bIllahi min ash shaytani R Rajim Wila del cuarto no
full circle in mo can I become Rafi well my files Ernie Kara do.
First self and also Lena ball, what can he Karen law he see raw,
almost subhanho wa Taala says And do not kill yourselves as in harm your own self, nor one another. Surely Allah is most merciful to you, and whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, we shall cast them into Jahannam or another for sofa honestly he Nowra which is referring to hellfire, and that is easy for Allah. Allah subhana Widad also says in verse number 93 have sought to Nisa
well many kotula meaning medium term medium fudges
Jehan mo Holly didn't see her. Probably Bella who are really well
Bin loudly. Allah subhana wa Tada says verse number 93, sort of Musa and whoever kills a believer intentionally when they Yakubu, Minamata and Mita whoever takes the life of a believer intentionally is recompense is
such as who Jahannam call Eden via his recompense or that person's that person receives Janam Hellfire to abide they're in and the Wrath of Allah, The Wrath and the curse of Allah subhana wa are upon him and a great punishment is prepared for him for that person. Well holy will love it you will I know who I did it. All Xena. In addition to this, Allah subhanho wa Taala says And so ultimately the verse number 32 Allah subhana wa Taala says
mean Edgerly the Nick get Ebina Bernie is
cotton Anis be aware enough seen a Professor Dean feel?
Fat fucka Nemo cotton, sir Jimmy woman? Yeah, fuck
In gemmy era, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Surah a diverse number 32 mean Edgerly Gallic Catalina Allah Benny is either a nobleman Katell NSMB lady Neff sin OLFA said in Phil fucka and Nana Katella NASA Jamia, this is a very powerful verse. Allah subhanaw taala says because of that we ordained for the children of Islam eel, right Benny is sort of ill, okay. That if anyone killed the person, not in retaliation of murder, or,
or and to spread mischief in the land, it would be as if he killed all of humanity, all of mankind. And if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all of mankind, all of humanity, men Katell innocent, right? Innocent Oh, facade. In fact, in Katella, NASA Jamia whoever takes the life of someone
without, you know, justification, so for example, that person was not on the battlefield or was not given the legal, you know, go ahead for whatever reason, right? Every country has different laws and not going to discuss that right now. But, you know, subhanAllah there are so many things that we could we could look at different angles, but we're just talking about it generally. Allah subhanho wa Taala says fucka and Nana Katana opha. sadden Right? Or if that person spreads mischief in the land, right simply spreading mischief for Kenema Katella NASA geneia It says, Oh, that person has killed all of humanity. Woman. Yeah, right. And for anyone who saves a life who contributes towards
the well being of another person's life, fucka Anna, in such me, I think of the reward of doctors. Think of the reward of those who help others someone who helps another person, if I can animate your nurse or Jenia it's as though that person has saved the life of all of humanity. Absolutely Powerful, absolutely amazing. However, we should strive we should strive towards trying to help one another. But what are the longer and narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said avoid the seven destructive sins and we've looked at this hadith already. Okay. And we've also covered this hadith in our Friday night.
etiquettes class, but for the sake of going over it, I've already thought of the Allah and narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
avoid the seven destructive sins. They said O Messenger of Allah, what are they? What are these sins?
He replied, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
associating partners with Allah, committing sorcery, killing a soul which Allah has made inviolable, except due to justice, right? If there's a reason that's a different thing, but unjustly taking the life of another person.
Consuming interest, consuming interest, consuming the wealth of orphans fleeing on the day when two armies so if a soldier flees when the army is there, you know, to, to engage in battle. And the last of which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions is slandering the chaste, innocent, believing women, robust handling data, guide us and help us and strengthen us all. And allow us to not take away the rights of others. I mean, I've done I've been
given a clipboard, okay, the son of amagno Clutha named Abdullah, he narrated that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, The perishing of this world,
the entire world, the entire world to perish. It is lighter in the sight of Allah than killing than the killing of a Muslim, as in to take the life of another person. Now, there's a few things that we learned here, but I'm just going to go through this and then I'll mention a few things right beside the video on the long run, and avoid all of the longer and narrated that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if the inhabitants of the heaven and the inhabitants of the earth, the inhabitants of the heavens, the sky is the angels and the inhabitants of the earth, okay, all that inhabits the earth joined together in the taking of the blood of a believer, one, Allah would
throw them into the hellfire,
here's something that we need to mention
We see some of these examples Hadith ayat of the Quran and we're gonna see a few more I'm gonna we're going to talk about suicide as well right the prohibition of suicides. Next thing we're going to talk about, but there's two things that I really want us to keep in mind with regards to what we've discussed already and what we're going to discuss first off, that these Hadith and if are warnings to us,
to wake up
and understand that, first of all, as believers, we are not to fight with one another. Okay, so when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned something harsh, or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned something that seems harsh, that is difficult to digest difficult to, you know, comprehend, it's like, whoa, ALLAH SubhanA wa, tada is being real serious here. Yes. Why? Because he's trying to wake us up, like, hey, just don't do this. Like you're not meant to be arguing amongst ourselves. We are not meant to be fighting amongst ourselves. We're not meant to be, you know, picking battles and you know, going against each other, I'll Muslim, a whole Muslim, the Muslim is the brother or the sister
of the other Muslim, right? A Muslim, mid to Muslim, the Muslim is the mirror
of another, right? Or the believer is a mirror of another believer. Right? We, we see ourselves in another believer, another Muslim, and we go and we help that person. If we see that someone is falling short, someone is missing out someone is in need of correction, someone's in need of support, someone's in need of some sort of guidance and assistance we go and we help them just like we would appreciate and expect someone else to do that for us and to us. And so as believers, we're supposed to be looking out for one another. We're supposed to be assisting each other. We're supposed to be helping each other and not going against each other. And this was the the big issue
that we saw after the passing of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam between the Muslims right arguments and people say how come the Muslims divided in Split? Well, the biggest fitna that we see happening is the fact that the prophets are longer and he was sent and passed away. And now that division started immediately, right? The Mahajan on the unsought arguing who's going to be the leaders next who's going to be in charge, you know, we're going to be in charge, you're going to be in charge and who ended up being appointed, Abubakar will do longer and right was appointed as the one to be the Khalifa after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then after him I mean Omar,
even appalled. And Earthman even have fun in the alley.
Even be part of the Illawarra and, and so we see that
the division that happens amongst us as Muslims is not something that's new in modern times. But just because it's not something new doesn't mean that hey, it happened before we were allowed to do it. No, we're not. It's advice from Allah Subhana Allah and the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam that we're not supposed to be fighting amongst ourselves. We're not supposed to be disputing. narcissists are supposed to come together and be united. Right? Be united, and work together, build the community together. You know, how I was listening to shake with Santa shake was some earlier Santa Sayid, who's, you know, the email and religious director of the Muslim Association of Milton men
here in Milton Hamdulillah, they open their new location today, they have a soft launch, soft launch, right? It's basically a sort of soft opening of the new Masjid that they have,
you know, purchased and built in humbler renovated and he was saying today in his class earlier that we need to work together to raise the level of Islam in the community. Right. And hamdulillah like I know between him and I, we have a good relationship and a good understanding between us regardless of me working here at one masjid, he's working on another Masjid Oh, two different messages to different organizations. No, no, we are one OMA we work together to raise the status the condition of the Muslims in the community where we reside. And So alhamdulillah you know, many people don't know this imams are generally United imams are generally united, you might see that masajid go
against each other, or organizations around the world and different cities or even within the same cities might go against each other sometimes just, you know, disagree with certain things or have rules that contradict rules to others. Every single place has its things to deal with. And so I'll handle that here in Milton, we try to work together to raise the level of Islam and to increase ourselves and become better Muslims, better meaning believers who submit to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Now we're going to be talking about the prohibition of
Suicide. So the next thing that I want to remind us with regards to this is that Allah subhanaw taala warns us about these things so that people don't commit suicide and they turn to Allah subhanho wa taala. Right. And in addition to that, Allah subhanaw taala knows the conditions of people's hearts. And we as human beings should not be judging one another. So you might hear something here and you're like, oh, that's harsh. Why is it harsh? Like I said before Allah subhanaw taala is trying to remind human beings do not do this. You have another outlet. First turn to Allah subhana wa Tada submit to Allah. Wa my de la jolla Geron lo Maharaja ye Zuko whom in Hey, Fula Yeah,
the Cebu? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Whoever has taqwa in Allah subhana wa Tada. What is taqwa? Loving ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada wanting to come closer to Allah hoping for goodness from ALLAH SubhanA wa tan, worried to do something that is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala scared to go against the Command of Allah scared to go against what Allah Subhana Allah loves because you love Allah we love him so much that we want to always constantly please Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah Alma yet tequila Yeji Allah Who Maharaja ALLAH SubhanA wa Johanna provides for that person who has taqwa and Allah a way out from the difficulties the hardships the things that they're going through and experiencing
in life that are so challenging for them. Allah subhanaw taala provides a way out an open door
right? You see on the top all his uses example we've been using it for years, right? The fire escape on the top of a door right where it says exit and you see like a men like this.
Or person I should say right person running out the door, right? Why fire escape? There's a problem here woman yet that they love. Aja Allahu Maharaja, there's a massage there's a way out Allah subhanaw taala provides that way out. Right? But once the person gets out of the hardship, the difficulty through the door or the passage the way that ALLAH SubhanA Widad is provided. Allah subhanaw taala doesn't abandon them. He doesn't just leave them. Allah Subhana Allah says, We are Zouk hoomin HIFU later tested. And he provides for that person from places they can't even comprehend. They can't even figure out like, where did this come from? How did I get this help? How
did this person come to me? How did I get the strength? How do they get the courage? How was I brave enough to get through this? Can't even comprehend. But it's Allah.
We have zuke hoomin HIFU latest. Okay.
So now let's look at the prohibition of suicide.
Abu Hurayrah or the Allahu, and narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever throws themselves off a mountain and kills themself will be in hell, throwing themselves down into it perpetually, in such a state they're in. Okay, it continues, but I'll stop here for a second.
This was something that
was done and had been known to the people at the time, someone who was and I'm going to pick and choose my words correctly, because I don't want us to just be like, Oh, depression, stress, anxiety now. Sometimes it's shame, family shame. Fear that they'll never be forgiven. remember some of the nation's and the people of the past. Right there, Toba. Their Toba was to not only repent to Allah subhanaw taala but to take their life, okay. So there were different things in different you know, ideas that people had, and you know, different factors contributing towards why a person may do such a thing, okay. That we have to keep in mind, okay.
So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, My light just went out.
He says this about
the person that takes their own life in this manner, okay.
He continues to say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever drinks poison and kills themselves with it will have in their hand poison and drinking it in the Hellfire perpetually in a state they're in. Whoever kills himself with an iron weapon will have the weapon in his hand stabbing his abdomen in the Hellfire perpetually in such a state they're in. Now again, going back to what I said. These are warnings right? Warning do not do this. Right. Do not
If you're if if a person is reaching a state where they're starting to think about self harm, then we need to get help. There are doctors, there are, you know, people, therapists that have the ability to help, you know, somehow others, a brother who I have to have a meeting with him,
developed an app to help people who are considering self harm, right? These are things that we have to keep in mind. Someone needs help, go and get help. Don't harm yourself. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala doesn't like that. And Allah will help and help will come. Seek help. Firstly, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and go and get the help. Don't just sit there. I know, I get these messages and emails and phone calls all the time. People say, I need help, but I don't want I don't want to come to the Imam. I don't want to go to a counselor. I don't want to go to a therapist. I don't want to take medicine. You know, you need help, but you don't want to take the help and get the help. And
so this is where we try and we help and we encourage them to get that help. And we all have a responsibility to do that. Okay, it's not on one or a few people's shoulders, it's on everyone's shoulders, we all have a responsibility to help those that are, you know, going through difficult times and considering or potentially even committing harm towards their own souls. Jindo, even Abdullah are the longer and said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, among the people before you there was a man who was injured. He suffered from the pain and therefore took a knife and cut his hand with it bleeding to death. Allah subhana wa Tada said, Allah said, My
servant has hurried his soul to me, so I shall forbid for him paradise again. a stern warning. Don't do this right a stern warning from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada of course through the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, here's a powerful lesson to listen to in sha Allah to Allah and then we'll conclude after this jabbered narrated that profile, even amor dosi came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, Do you need a strong fortified protection? Do you want us to protect you? The tribe of DOS had a fort in the pre Islamic days. The prophets all along it was sudden declined this offer because Allah had already reserved that privilege for the unsought, the unsought or the people that were going to take care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Muslims that were coming to Medina, Medina,
Medina to Nibi and so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam declined this offer because ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada had already reserved that privilege for the unsought
when the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam finally emigrated to Medina prefer to live in our emigrated to Medina, he also
made hijra to Madina Munawwara.
Another man from his tribe also made hijra with him, emigrated with him. The climate of Medina was not good for him, and he felt ill just wasn't used to that climate wasn't something that he was, you know, physically used to. He became ill, he felt very discomforted. So he took an iron arrowhead and cut his knuckles, he then bled to death.
Profile, even armour saw him in a dream and saw him in a good state in a good condition. But with his hands wrapped up
to fail, asked him in the dream. What did your Lord do with you? He replied, He forgave me due to my emigration to the prophets, Allah Allah USL. So, in his dream he asks him What did Allah subhana wa Tada do to you? He says, ALLAH forgive me, because I made higit on to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He then said, Why do I see your hands wrapped?
I was told. So he said to him, he said to a profile in his dream,
we would not set right anything of which you yourself damaged, as in a loss pay he was told
that you harmed yourself. So we will not take care of that
up to fail, then went and told this to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the story, you know that that he saw in his dream, and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh Allah, pardon his hand.
as well, so he may do out for him a lot, pardon his hands as well. So we see here how the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as someone who receives way from Allah subhanho wa taala, who teaches us the deen of Allah azza wa jal had, you know taught the Sahaba of the llama and whom not to harm themselves, no self harm, right? Protect yourself, look after yourself, you know, respect yourself, and also
make dua for the person even though he had passed away and we know how severe it is right for someone to do that and take their life. We took those examples earlier, from you know, the ayat and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we've covered, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam listened to the story of a profile from the dream that he saw. And he says, the men had told him, you know, Allah forgave him because he made hijra, but they would not rectify his affairs that he did to himself he harmed himself by cutting his knuckles right and that that forced him or that led to him bleeding to death. And so the profits along that he was selling me throughout
a lot part in his hands as well.
And this is an act of Sahih Muslim, recorded by Mr. Muslim or whom Allah and graded as according to shekel and Vanita Allah
that's all we're going to take for today, inshallah Tada, but it teaches us a powerful lesson. First of all, we don't judge each other. We don't judge one another. And we don't decide who is right and who did right and who did wrong. We leave that to Allah subhanho wa taala. Okay, we leave it to Allah subhana wa, Motorhead.
He's the one who judges he's the one who decides, and he knows the condition of people's hearts.
And this is a topic that's very sensitive for many, right?
I'm sure every single one of us has probably heard of or knows of someone who may have committed suicide, right?
Allah knows the condition of that person's heart, what struggles they were going through what led them to it, right?
And how difficult things may have been for them, and we leave that to Allah Subhana Allah we make dua for them. We make dua for them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you know told the Sahaba the Allah and him to pray the janazah of that person. Okay. We'll take some questions in sha Allah to Allah and then we'll conclude because getting late.
I see a question here is a yawn mashallah Tabata cola Hall is ready with the questions right is consuming interest in paying interest the same level in terms of sinning? So consuming interest is as we mentioned earlier, in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the seven sins that we should avoid at all costs, right? So is consuming and paying interest the same level in terms of sinning? So I don't really know what you mean by in terms of sinning because it is a sin. And there are many types of sins and many levels of sins right? Some sins are worse like shirk is a sin that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not forgive, okay, he does not forgive and he chooses to
forgive what He wills and again Allah subhanaw taala knows the condition of people's hearts right?
are suicidal thoughts a sin? How do we overcome such a test from Allah? So we are not sinned for what we think of.
Okay, we're not sinned for what we think of. We are sinned for what we carry out and do if we don't, if we don't seek forgiveness after committing that sin, remember, the angels hold their penance the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned for six hours, angels don't write down the sin. The angel here on the left doesn't write down the sin that was said or done until six hours later. So there's a time there's a grace period where that angel will wait to see if the believer is going to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa taala. Okay.

What's the wisdom behind the prohibition of taking our own lives? Zach Hello Phelan robotica lofi calm. Well, the wisdom behind it is that ALLAH SubhanA Widad is in control. And remember in the Hadith that we just finished looking at, right the second to last Hadith that we took, my servant has hurried his soul to me, so I shall forbid for him paradise. Now this doesn't necessarily mean that Paradise will be completely forbidden upon that person because that person is a believer. So Allah Subhana Allah forbids that person from immediate entrance into paradise. Of course, it's Allah's choice, and we cannot judge and say, Who is this and who is that and what's right and what's
wrong. We leave it to Allah Subhana Allah, but Allah Subhana Allah says that he forbids paradise and that person is forbidden from entering into paradise until they see out a term or a punishment for the sin that they committed. So what's the wisdom behind the prohibition is that life itself that we have that we've been given is an A Merner that has come to us and been gifted to us from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and Allah says in the Quran, that he bought his thought all meaning meaning in our lives, and our wealth, bn Allahumma Jana, Allah subhanho wa Taala purchased our life and our wealth from us, in exchange for Paradise. So our life and our wealth belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. It's
in a manner that we've been entrusted with, we have to look after our wealth and spend it and earn it correctly. We have to look after our life and spend it and respect it correctly, because it belongs to Allah in exchange for Jana. So when we look after it, we earn gender when we don't look after it, we earn Jana. I hope that's clear, Siobhan data.
So a question What about Muslim countries that oppress other Muslim countries causing famine and death, we make dua to Allah subhanho wa taala, for their guidance to talk about a country is a challenging thing to do. And not not entirely fair, for someone to to put a blanket statement over country like for example, you asking me this question, if I was to say in response to that, you know, may Allah do this or that or cursing, you know, make a dua against certain people, then that would not be fair or right. There may be certain things that I don't understand of what's going on behind the scenes, or you don't understand or we don't understand, right? There may be certain
things that are ongoing, that Allah Subhana Allah knows about, that we are unaware of. We don't like it. Not saying that we encourage it not at all. We don't like it, we make dua for them to be guided. Right? We don't like it. It's not good, it's wrong. We don't understand why certain things happen. And Allah Subhana Allah tells us that, you know, we might think that something is good for us and turns out to be bad. And we might think that something's bad for us and it turns out to be good. So look at every single thing that's happening in the world, as a reminder from Allah subhanho wa taala, a wake up call from Allah azza wa jal, right? Think of it as you know, Allah is trying to get
us to become better. And here's an example that I'll share in sha Allah.
I was at the hospital a few days ago, when my mother was still in the ICU. And one of the orderlies that came by,
you know, he was cleaning up picking up the the gowns of dirty gowns and changing the garbage and stuff like that. He asked me, he says, What do you do? I said, Well, I'm an imam in the masjid, you know, studied Islam and teach Islam. I'm also a chaplain in a hospital, and a chaplain in a prison. And he says, you know, we started talking,
he was talking about, you know, other books of Allah subhana data, and he says, We, as human beings have a mission, to worship Allah to worship God. That's what he was saying. He's like, we have to worship God. And we need to stop arguing. We need to stop fighting. We need to wake up. Right? This is what he was saying. He's not Muslim. Right? Allah Subhana. Allah knows the condition of his heart. But he was saying, he says, Look, this, he says the example of the world in the condition of the world, he says, What do you think of the world nowadays? So we have a lot of work to do. He says, not only do we have a lot of work to do, we need to change ourselves. We need to become
He says, Look at the example of COVID Allah sent COVID-19 As a wake up call, and we failed. This is what he was saying, right? He says we failed. I was like, yeah.
explain more. He says we failed because God sent something to us to check
hinge us to become better to recognize the he's in control of everything. And we should submit to Him. But what did we do? He says, Look human beings, all we're doing is complaining that our life can't go back to normal and keep waiting and trying to get our lives to go back to how it was. He's like God sent this so that we don't go back to how we were. God wants us to change to become better to understand that he's in control that he is in charge that we have to change ourselves for the better to worship him. I was like, la hookah. He says even in your Quran, it says that, doesn't it? Unlike Yes, it does, right? Yes, it does. And he was like, these are signs from God, that we as
human beings have to change to become better not wait for COVID to go away to to just go back to normal and how things were, we should change to become better people. And then God will remove these things very quickly. But we don't. And he's like, right now we failed. And he was saying because we failed watch. There's a lot more that's going to come to human beings. This is what he was saying. Right? And I was like, wow, there's one powerful order leaving. He's like giving dour in the ICU
