Solo Solo Solo Solo, viola sama to proceed

00:00:07--> 00:00:08

Let me tell you this

00:00:12--> 00:00:25

topics of this nature today we're gonna be talking about the etiquettes of using the lavatory, you know relieving yourself going to the bathroom and topics of this nature are really not very easy for me to discuss. I don't like a

00:00:26--> 00:00:35

bit not because it is, it's a bad thing to discuss as they're just like, not the sort of easiest

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

topics for me to discuss.

00:00:40--> 00:00:46

But I want to I want you to remember this, you know, the preference of seven was

00:00:47--> 00:00:54

more shy and modest than, you know, they say that's a few 100

00:00:57--> 00:01:01

version woman a woman in her headquarters or in her living quarters.

00:01:03--> 00:01:40

So it must have been also not very easy for the Prophet Saul silence to address topics of that nature. But he told us that it was important for him to address topics of that nature, it was important for him to teach us about these issues because it's just part of human life. And he came to tell us about everything that is good for us in every regard and every aspect in every sphere of human life. There is a beautiful hobbies which the prophets have some of them said support bamboo The Prophet said, in a manner that compliment Zilla to led our limo company that

00:01:44--> 00:01:44


00:01:47--> 00:02:02

with it, what about what I stand the column instead of at the other, you know what I started being meaning these. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, I am to you like a father, I am to you like a father.

00:02:04--> 00:02:10

And I teach you is that you know, so I will teach you certain things.

00:02:12--> 00:02:37

Whenever you go to the bathroom, do not face the peddler while you're suffocating your urinating and do not use your right hand and linear self. So the prophets are seldom said, because a father when need to talk to his children about sensitive issues. I am to you like a father, and certainly much greater than a father.

00:02:39--> 00:02:58

So I would also have to talk to you about sensitive issues. And sometimes the profit zone would feel like too shy to discuss these issues, particularly with women and that he would use his wives. And then but then at the end of the day, at the end of the day, the honest

00:03:00--> 00:03:49

conveying the message is an obligation. It's a duty, it's not a luxury. So we will have to talk about those issues, sometimes in detail. Sometimes questions, you know, sometimes, not only the teacher but the student are not only the person who's given the answer, or the person is posing the question. They need to be detailed so that they can get the proper answer for their question. And China's core modesty should not prevent us from learning our Deen as Ayesha prays that the women of the unsired for not allowing modesty and shyness to borrow them from knowledge or block them from knowledge. This is the structure of the talk today.

00:03:52--> 00:04:34

And we'll be talking about three major subsections entering the lavatory and under this relieving oneself and cleaning oneself you enter you relieve yourself you clean yourself and then you leave. So entering and leaving the laboratory relieving oneself and cleaning oneself with when it comes to entering the laboratory we'll talk about the thick the right and left foot what is not taken inside. Things that we should leave outside when you enter the bathroom, relieving oneself we will talk about how to sit how to screen yourself what like what you know.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

But if you're camping you may want to learn about these things.

00:04:41--> 00:04:57

Where should you relieve yourself and the direction How should you which direction should you be facing? And then we will talk about cleaning oneself how to stop the leaks how you know what, what is the role of your right hand and this all

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

you know business

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

The entire business of using the lavatory and how you spell your right hand and why, and then cleaning oneself and water versus

00:05:12--> 00:05:17

stones versus other items, or other cleaning tools.

00:05:19--> 00:05:44

So, in the beginning, I we have, you know, that the car that he would say when you go into the bathroom and the car that he will say, when you go out to the bathroom, read them, they are in your book, I also provided, you know, the author, you know, some remarks about the authenticity or lack thereof, of some of these

00:05:46--> 00:05:54

you know, even if they are weak, it may be instead acceptable to use them. Because these are,

00:05:55--> 00:06:40

these are acts of virtue. And some are not really making new rulings here on the basis of weak reports. But these are just virtuous acts, even if the Hadith is weak may be used. However, for people like us, you know, they were looking for more and more and more for people like us, if you just add here to that which is authentic, I will be good. If you want more, you could use some of the others, but in what you know, so if you will be choosing some of those choose what's authentic, what has been reported in Buhari authentically and all the scholars said that this is coming from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it should be a no brainer, right? If you're going to be choosing

00:06:40--> 00:06:53

between these statements or asgar choose what the scholars have told you we have confidence this comes from the profit is clear, it's clear. And then you know,

00:06:55--> 00:07:33

he will walk into the bathroom with your left foot you walk out of the bathroom with your right foot. And you're basically trying to follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam some of the elegance may not be comprehensible, some may be comprehensible, some may have medical benefits, we may discuss the Some may not be comprehensible, but nothing will be counter to you know proven facts or counter you nothing will be proven harmful whatsoever. It just can't happen if it is authentic, it's not going to be proven harmful.

00:07:36--> 00:07:44

Then the issue that we want to discuss in this particular subsection the issue that we want to discuss in some more detail

00:07:46--> 00:07:54

because it requires a little bit of understanding the other issues just require you to read the Quran and so on the issue that we'll discuss in more detail is

00:07:55--> 00:08:44

what you could walk into the bathroom with so imagine a banana and I would still say the Arabic very quickly so that we will have covered the hola but it's the hub Woodman rather the Hola Hola, Nicola Bismillah. However below him in hopes he will have his women are rich in notices shaytaan Raji with a Kannada pallava Franek, hamdu Lillahi avani funny when you cut them original use of fit the whole, when you cut them original young furoate what I what I had heard, who be say in FY crolla hit Allah in London had, he should not enter with anything into the lavatory or bathroom with anything bearing the mention of Allah, anything with inscriptions of last names, unless there is a need unless there

00:08:44--> 00:09:38

is a need to issues here, one in the mountain. Kodama did not particularly address in the mountain or in the text, which is peeking and mentioning the name of Allah not taking inscriptions of any malaba mentioning the name of Allah. First what he mentioned was about the inscriptions, you don't take anything into the bathroom with inscriptions of the name of Allah is this makuu or Hara inshallah monta it you know that it is said that it is macro This is only macro not Haram. So, that's why I use should versus must when I use should not hit when I use must not in this book. It means haha. When to use must it means whether when to use should it means either macro a word means

00:09:38--> 00:09:51

when I use sure that means either Mr. Harper where Japan and we want to use should not it means either macro Hara. So I use here should not it should give you an indication that it may not be hard on

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

you should not includes you know Makoto Han Han. So he should not enter it with anything bearing

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

mention of Allah subhanaw taala. Is there an exception, some of the scholars from from being McGrew, we said, if you have anything that has the name of Allah, the names of Allah on it taken out of your pocket, leave it outside the bathroom, when you enter the bathroom,

00:10:19--> 00:10:48

because it is makrooh to take it inside, if you take it inside the bathroom, it is not Haram. It's just McGrew, some of the scholars, the scholars said, but for the most half, in particular, and the most half is the copy of the plan that only has the Arabic text without commentary or translation that has the Arabic text without any other human sort of

00:10:50--> 00:11:01

literature, whether it's commentary or translation, so that most half they said, or some of them have very sadly, this hat on, they take it inside.

00:11:03--> 00:11:54

Now, is there a proof, you know, the profit taken off his ring and leaving it outside has not been authentically verified, it is not authentic creep is not an authentic report, but you have a big proof for many of them. So I have a lot for inand in support group, radical Muslims I in our life in them in Tacloban sort of had to LA said, Whoever you know, venerates, you know, shows respect and veneration to shy and a lot of the sacraments of Allah rituals of his religion, that is out of the piety of their hearts, that is from the piety of their hearts, sometimes insha Allah to show respect, veneration, you know, to the sacraments of a lot of rituals of the religion, part of it is

00:11:54--> 00:12:44

not to take the mask off into the bathroom, that should be clear. Now, when is it? When is it acceptable to even take the mask off into the bathroom, he said, here in London hands, unless there is a need here going to the year the airport areas in the public bathroom here and not going to leave that must have outside, you probably keep it inside your luggage, a bit inside your pocket, it is safer inside your pocket than leaving it outside of the bathroom safer inside your luggage than you know, then then leaving it outside. So that's as far as things with the inscriptions of the name of Allah, you keep them outside you don't you know, unless there is a need, you're using a public

00:12:44--> 00:12:49

bathroom, and you're not going to keep it it's safer to keep it on you.

00:12:51--> 00:12:56

Now the other issue, which is the mention of the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:12:58--> 00:13:17

the other issue which is the mention of the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala speaking and mentioning the name of Allah subhanaw taala. And some of this may not be in your book. But the scholar said, in general, when you're using the bathroom, it is makuu not haram macro, not Hara.

00:13:19--> 00:14:00

And you understand the difference between you and her. Because you shouldn't you should avoid that which is mob rule because a lot of dislikes, that you shouldn't be going around and forcing it on the people to avoid McGrew or to do the most harm. And you should not be condemning the people who should not be like harsh with the people because they're doing something macro, or they're not doing something that's a hub, for your own sake, try to avoid the macro, try to do them. But, you know, don't be stiff or strict. Even with your own kids, just get them to do that and avoid the harm first before they move on to other things

00:14:01--> 00:14:29

except for the things that they need to be trained in so that they become a second nature. That's a long story. But But going back to the talking, you should not be talking because it's Makarova recitation of the Qur'an. Some said that is haraam presentation of the Quran some says m it is a it is really just like, you know, repulsive to hear someone inside the bathroom, you know relieving himself and resigning apart it's just repulsive.

00:14:31--> 00:14:37

So, but speaking in general and Victor in general, they said it is macro

00:14:38--> 00:14:52

where did they come up with this for speaking in particular, let alone thick, just speaking, speaking anything you know, English speaking. So, they said that

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

they said it slowly manners and there is a controversial hobbies of controversial

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

authenticity and controversial implication, where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said layer for millennia Rabanne Maha

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

Kashi fania arati Hema yet

00:15:12--> 00:15:47

for in Allah Hi I'm puto Oliver laughs Raja Raja Yoga a ban of God to men should not go out to the to relieve themselves to the bathroom without it. Cassie finally on our team, uncovering their nakedness showing their nakedness to each other, and people do this, you know, in every society, even nowadays, like with all of this civilization, business and stuff, people still do this lowly manners, Cassie find out how to him and showing their nakedness yet to have this and speaking with each other

00:15:48--> 00:16:01

for mlm evatik because Allah hates them, because Allah hates that. So it's just lodhi manners. This Hamid has a controversial authenticity and was banned, he felt it was authentic.

00:16:03--> 00:16:17

Some of the scholars felt it was authentic, some of the scholars felt it was not authentic. But even if it has, if it is authentic, the implication is a little bit unclear, you know,

00:16:18--> 00:16:36

whether Allah subhanaw taala hates it, because of the combination of showing your nakedness and speaking or hate said, for each individual action showing your nakedness can speaking, you know, so showing your nakedness as hated as speaking is hated.

00:16:38--> 00:17:10

But at any rate, this color is deduced from this and the deuced from the general sort of teachings of the deen that speaking while in the bathroom is at least his macro, his macro is this like, except for a need the set to alert someone let's say someone you know, like a blind person is going to trip and fall you alert them or alert someone to some dangers, you know any person to some danger.

00:17:12--> 00:17:29

I would add to this because the because the sort of the had the belief that it is haram to speak in the bathroom and that it is makrooh to speak in the bathroom. It's a soft delete. So I would add to this more things like if you know your child is

00:17:31--> 00:18:16

look, not to see your child if some child is looking for their parents, to comfort them, to talk to them until you come out or to comfort them to tell them your parent is in the kitchen or your mother kitchen, that would be still acceptable, that would be still acceptable. As for the kid in particular, you try to avoid thick, the executor of Allah subhanaw taala. Now which the karate avoiding is the color of the tongue, should the heart avoid the remembrance of never the heart should never avoid the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. So, and that is the reconciliation between the different hobbies because we have a hadith from Abdullah Homer the man walked by the

00:18:16--> 00:18:48

prophet sallallahu Sallam was urinating a man walked by and he greeted them with saddam and the prophet SAW someone did not answer him. Mohammed Mohammed hypno confessed probably was the you know, may have been that man. He said that I was you know, agreed to the Prophet some sort of way and he was urinating he did not respond to my greeting. And after he finished urinating, he made will do and then he said to me get into an app called Allah Allah Allah taharah high dislike to mention a lie except in a state of

00:18:49--> 00:19:33

exception so far. I shall however, can you know Seth can also analyze the salami of koala hot aquileia here and the prophets are seldom used to mention Allah at all times. in all circumstances. He any he means at all times in all circumstances. How do you reconcile between this? Some of the scholars that usually you don't mention a lot, but you could still mention a last minute even with your thought, in all circumstances in all conditions. And some of the scholars said, No, this is the mention of the heart that when you when you are in a circumstance like this, it's the mention of the heart. Certainly excluded from this record is the victory that you will say upon entering the

00:19:33--> 00:19:51

bathroom or removing your clothes. If there is no bathroom. When do you say the thick? If there is no bath if there is no building if there is no door that you will open when do you say the Vic? Would you remove your clothes? Like you're out in you know,

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

camping and you just walk behind the mountain and and when you start you relieve yourself and so when do you say the things

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

Before entering the bathroom, when you remove your clothes, okay, now quickly, and it gets off defecation and urination, we're done with this indicates of the verification and urination This is the second part, we will talk about how to set he said we are attempting to feed you loose, he allegedly hideous when one squats, he should put more of his weight on his left leg.

00:20:25--> 00:20:31

Now, there is a report and Pavani that is very weak that he should do this.

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

But this is a very weak report.

00:20:37--> 00:20:42

And the medical benefits that are mentioned by this colors, these are medical benefits that

00:20:44--> 00:20:45


00:20:46--> 00:21:05

not verifiable by our standards. By our standards, it does not mean that we have the golden standard, because 200 years from now, people will be looking back and down at us and saying those people you know how dumb you know. So.

00:21:07--> 00:21:48

So with because human beings are so arrogant, they always think that Okay, now we arrived. Now we're here. Now we have the facts straight. And then to you know, like 50 years from now, you know, even medicine, if any one of you practices medicine, every 10 years, they tell you, you know what, everything that you knew about this was with all you know, holes. And then let's just start from the beginning started from scratch, and change everything. So so it is important that we don't become arrogant, but it is also important that you do not use information.

00:21:49--> 00:22:06

Seven century after hijiri Magna padana Fatima mala, a great scholar, but not necessarily a great physician, he was, you know, and even if he was a great physician, by the standards of his time, that does not mean that he has the medical facts straight. So

00:22:08--> 00:22:45

this is very important, because that's another sticky area that makes us religious people, particularly conservative religious people look very awkward to, you know, more secular minded people, when we rely on information or sciences of the seventh century, you know, so you have an epidemic, asks the physicians, the, you know, physicians of his time of, you know, physicians who were living in Damascus, in the seventh, seventh century, which is the 13th century Gregorian why's

00:22:46--> 00:23:00

those positions, they have limited information, that they have an aberration, or they will be speaking, based on their depository of medical knowledge? Actually, there's much better in us,

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

aggravating me.

00:23:10--> 00:23:19

Okay, so, so you don't need so this particular part and then you have to, you know, put more weight on your left leg.

00:23:21--> 00:23:30

It's it's not traceable to the profit. The medical benefit of it is not really verifiable by our standards.

00:23:32--> 00:24:04

Then he said, we're in Canada, about our status if if he is outdoors, he must go far in screen himself. If he's outdoors, he must go far in speed himself and you have a decent movie Robin Sharma who said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam I was with the Prophet and the Prophet, well, you know why I wanted to go to the bathroom. So he will went far away and screened himself from me and supported by Muslim. So that is clear, as part of Islamic modesty. You screen yourself, you move far away so that people are not hearing you.

00:24:05--> 00:24:19

And you screen yourself so that people are not seeing you, so that you could do this as discreetly as possible. This is a function that you should not be too casual about. Just like be modest about it.

00:24:21--> 00:24:40

were paired to the Beverly Hills Mowgli unwrapped where he must seek a soft spot to urinate on. And this is you have the Heidi's here because I happen to be a man who has reports by Bukhari and Muslim or have a friend in India man, said the prophets of Salaam

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

walked to a garbage dump of some people and urinated this garbage dump of some people will be soft enough so that the urine does not patter back on you. That is why you'll find the soft, soft spot to urinate on pure out campaign.

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

There is no bathroom, you find the soft spot to urinate on to the urine does not spatter back on you. And then as I said, fabella here elated standing. And the other benefit from this Hadees is to say that urinating while standing is not harm, it is suboptimal. When, but but it also depends on you know, it's it's very complicated. Basically, what the objective here is not to soil yourself first and not to soil the place second, not to sell yourself first, not soil the place second, particularly, when we have clean bathrooms nowadays, that you should not be soiled and

00:25:47--> 00:26:02

you know, but not to say your first self should be the first thing you know priority. So, if you have an area that is dirty, this collar is said if you have an area that is dirty, around you dirty,

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

you know, sitting Will

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

you know, get some of that dirt on you,

00:26:13--> 00:26:36

then it is preferred to urinate standing, it is preferred to urinate standing because the prophecies haven't dated and have had it not been the optimal thing to do in some circumstances, he would have not done it. So, it is the optimal thing to do in certain circumstances. If you fear that you will get yourself dirty if you sit then you urinate standing.

00:26:38--> 00:27:03

But then, in general, and in most circumstances, it is preferred that you urinate sitting, and that used to be the US will think that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did, and he said he even said whoever tells you otherwise Don't believe him, he never urinated except sitting because that is what she saw. But then when you have like a great

00:27:05--> 00:27:37

companion, coming into telling you very trustworthy companion coming and telling you I saw him urinate standard. That is a is Maffia well who I must admit he is affirming the occurrence of something he is negating which one should you believe the one more firms or the one who negates the one who affirms because he sighed. She isn't negating she is telling the truth. She's never seen him urinate standard, but he saw him so you believe him that he saw him.

00:27:38--> 00:28:29

So in this case, when you're out, you know, in a public bathroom, and you are too uncomfortable sitting, don't blame yourself. It's not guilty to urinate while standing in a circumstance like that. But in general, you know, in the mustards, bathroom, sit down, you know, clean it, if it is not clean, that would be a good time to clean the master bathroom, clean it, you know, and if we're all doing this brothers, it will always be clean, you know, clean it, and then sit down, relieve yourself. And you'll you will have gotten the reward, love multiple rewards, you clean the bathroom, and you and certainly at home, you should be at least courteous to your like your other family

00:28:29--> 00:28:30

members who

00:28:32--> 00:28:35

anyway, so and then he said

00:28:38--> 00:29:00

then imagine Kodama said what a roofie soap been while shopping well after eating, what are the nafion what are the most Mira he must not urinate in a hole or groove he must not urinate in a hole or groove. The heavies about this is not authentic, but this content is provided

00:29:01--> 00:29:01


00:29:02--> 00:29:22

rational you know proofs where we know the rational proof is that those grooves and holes may have animals and he you know they may come out and hurt you or something. So, you so the venue should not urinate in a hole or groove

00:29:23--> 00:29:39

past party path that's by consensus hobbies, their topology, malamala nsrs and bofi poliquin. And furthermore, it will be Perea patata Saturday muskmelon alchemical symbolism

00:29:41--> 00:29:43

so the the

00:29:45--> 00:30:00

beneficial shade or under a fruit bearing tree the prophet SAW Selim said, you know, be aware or save yourself from the sequels of curse or beware of the sequels of curse urinating.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

In malaria water sources water bodies and three

00:30:08--> 00:30:14

paths people and in the state under the fruitful trees are in the shade

00:30:16--> 00:30:17


00:30:19--> 00:30:25

that is then he said one step below Samsung What are camera he must not face the sun or moon

00:30:27--> 00:30:51

very weak report about this Don't worry about this very weak report that we do not use we do not use to make rulings are you making a ruling now you are making a ruling you are preventing people from facing a certain direction particularly when you have to worry about not facing the Qibla and not facing the sun and not facing that gets to be like

00:30:53--> 00:30:54


00:30:55--> 00:30:56


00:30:58--> 00:31:17

so, just forget about the sun and the moon not nothing authentic here. But then moving on what aspects beyond tableta What is that Barrow howdy howdy Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam lotta stuck below build a table at a bigger building what are the steps below

00:31:18--> 00:32:00

and then he must not face or turn his back towards the Qibla because of the saying of the messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam this hadith is reported by a boy you forget about Buhari or Muslim from a VA you do not face or give your back to the parabola while dedicating their urinating. The Prophet said that then he said we do so that he can fit in and that will be permissible indoors because the reporters have this hobbies themselves. Like what are you born he went to a sham and he found laboratories already built and facing the Qibla he would say are stuck for a while and he would use them because he felt that they are inside the building. And I believe and Omar clearly stated that

00:32:00--> 00:32:54

this prohibition applies in the open not inside buildings. And he used to not worry about it inside buildings or even if there is a barrier if there is any barrier between you and the peddler however we Muslims because there is a little bit of controversy still concerning facing the Qibla while in sight while you're inside the bathroom inside the walls of the bathroom. Because there is some controversy. Muslim architects are encouraged to avoid making the you know the toilet to face the tablet and that should not be too difficult. I mean if it is doable, if it is logistically feasible, then things should be encouraged and just just get out of the controversy and be safe.

00:32:55--> 00:33:01

Then he said advocate self cleaning one or this is a sub sub titled from me.

00:33:02--> 00:33:08

But imagine Kodama Rahim Allah said what even pathol Bible now we will talk about advocates of cleaning oneself.

00:33:10--> 00:33:17

We talked about screening, we talked about plays, we talk about the election. We're done with this. So we'll talk about the eloquence of cleaning oneself.

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

So remember,

00:33:25--> 00:33:32

I said whatever in katal Babu Massa Hammond asked me Zachary, you see from andrew sullivan.

00:33:34--> 00:33:53

He says that when the when the urine stops, he should milk his organ from its root to its step and then shake it off three times and then shake it off three times. Now shaking it there is a report very weak

00:33:55--> 00:34:03

Miss milking it there is no report. The scholar has just said this so that you could remove any remains of urine that are inside.

00:34:06--> 00:34:27

The scholars even came up with more things like yet enough enough like to do this. Walk three steps they came out they came up with walking three steps. They have been trying to do their best to sort of make sure that you don't dribble afterwards and there is nothing that comes out afterwards.

00:34:28--> 00:34:29


00:34:30--> 00:34:44

heavily they may or rahima Hola, Seth and a bit more flat reported this from him and all of the company books afterwards, after a minute they may have reported this from him. He said Columbo better all of it is in his innovation.

00:34:46--> 00:34:47


00:34:49--> 00:34:52

the the idea here is

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

keep in mind that with me sometimes would say things that are bizarre

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

Even for the mathematic said that they are prescribed

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

to him it is about honesty.

00:35:09--> 00:35:13

To him, this fight is extreme respect for

00:35:14--> 00:35:20

extreme veneration of mathematic, you know, I would say extreme because really like extreme love

00:35:22--> 00:35:35

for Africa, it would not keep him from, you know, being honest. If it had no, if it had no origin in the Quran and Sunnah or the practice of the early generation,

00:35:36--> 00:36:01

then me Oh, by the way, is one of the people that, you know, he's not very strict in the concept of better sought to be as much stricter than they may and the concept of benign, they may recognize this person recognizes the good better, versus the bad better shot to be does not recognize a bit of a hassle. And that's a whole other topic. But even if a male doesn't recognize it, without Hassan, which is the good bit.

00:36:03--> 00:36:11

But when something something like this, particularly something like this, it is adding a burden to the people, right,

00:36:12--> 00:36:18

that has not been traced to the Prophet. And even Tamia would would say that,

00:36:20--> 00:36:38

I know man, it medwatch Villa de la vida, a, you know, that which is not necessary for the fulfillment of an obligation is obligatory in itself, that which is necessary for the fulfillment of an obligation is obligatory itself. But I believe, I believe that this is something

00:36:39--> 00:36:44

that the Prophet would have taught us, if it was ever wearing.

00:36:45--> 00:37:41

And that doing this often will result in will result in the very thing that you're afraid of, because if you left it alone, it will stop and if you do it and do it off them, it may result in causing you to dribble afterwards. And that would be the concern and that that is why he would voice his concern and he would call it a bitter which means what means that calling something better is not an attack on the person who prescribed it. It is just that you're saying that I do not see I do not see the justification of this ruling in the Quran and the Sunnah. So it isn't a matter that was introduced later, that does not find justification in the Quran and Sunnah, calling something

00:37:41--> 00:37:59

better, is not calling the person who calls to with muqtada whatsoever. And that is the problem that happens in our minds, that when we call something better our automatically calling the person who prescribed that moqtada

00:38:00--> 00:38:33

this is bizarre to me, he may be right, it may be correct, it may be a good thing. But to me, to my knowledge, this is better, it's something that was introduced, does not have justification in the poor hand or center, do not hate him, I am not critiquing I am not taking away from his stature as a scholar by saying that, it is a better even though such and such scholar

00:38:35--> 00:38:57

encouraged or prescribed. This is when always throughout the Islamic Islamic history, this our callers have always been critical of each other's views, very critical of each other views, you know, discussions between them, they never, you know, basically

00:38:59--> 00:39:14

shied away from defending what they think is correct, but they always know that what I believe is correct and which which I will defend does not have to be in truth

00:39:15--> 00:39:40

that is capital T truth in truth that does not have to be in truth correct. And my saying that this has been our This is wrong or this is reckless, reckless factor or this or that does not necessarily mean I am attacking the Mufti or I'm attacking the scholar who prescribed the orange.

00:39:43--> 00:39:54

Is that clear? It's very important to understand. Now. So what would be the proper position here regarding this milking and shaking and walking and

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

the correct position is that if someone knows

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

That something works for them without obsessiveness. And without excessiveness let them do.

00:40:09--> 00:40:19

But it should not be a general prescription for the public that every time you finish urinating, you need to milk shake, walk, and

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

da da da da da

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

Okay. Next,

00:40:25--> 00:40:30

he said what is what is the Baqarah who will be a meanie, he said to me,

00:40:31--> 00:41:07

he should not touch his his Oregon with his right hand. And he should not use it to wipe himself. That would be a problem because in the Hanbury view, he should not even touch it when he's trying to wipe himself. So you spare your right hand, to the best of your ability, even when you wipe your self, you only use your left hand, if that is not logistically easy. They said, then you hold your the Oregon with our right hand hand wipe with the left hand, but don't move.

00:41:08--> 00:41:09


00:41:10--> 00:41:11

So the then

00:41:15--> 00:41:33

is that clear, that's clear the spirit right and as much as possible, when you spare your right hand, you're actually breaking the cycle, the cycle of infection, because you eat with your right hand, you use your left hand for cleaning, that breaks the cycle of infection infects and

00:41:35--> 00:41:40

that is basically the gastric or

00:41:42--> 00:42:31

it's the cycle that you know, from from the rectum to the mouth, you're trying to break that cycle. So can it it works wonders when you do this. Because, you know, given an infection, because someone may say, Well, I will touch my right hand with my left hand, but it is the germ load that will determine whether you will become infected clinically sick or not. So if the if the germ load on your left hand is let's say 100,000 colonies, and the germ load on your right hand is two to 3000 colonies and you use your right hand to eat the two or 3000 colonies would not get you infected and clinically sick.

00:42:32--> 00:42:58

So, this is this is a beautiful way of breaking that cycle of reinfecting yourself with the germs that come out from the gastrointestinal tract. So, break the cycle, use the right hand for good things and the left hand for other for the other things and then he said some aesthetic Mira withdrawn from a stingy bun man for inokashira

00:43:00--> 00:43:53

are listed Maria de he should wave himself an odd number of times and wash himself with water after that, if he chooses only to wipe then it would surprise him by consensus. You see, hi heard that I you know in some interface type thing or like not interface but non Muslims were present were in in the audience. And he kept on talking about, you know, how filthy the certain people are because they don't wash themselves with water. I mean, that doesn't that is not justifiable, even internally within our within our religion, because by consensus, it is sufficient to why it is preferable to wash. And you will have all of this discussion in the book. So I'm not going to go into much detail.

00:43:53--> 00:44:03

But it is sufficient to wipe and wiping with anything that is clean and purifying. Meaning it's not to sort of

00:44:05--> 00:44:59

it has the ability of cleaning you like particularly tissue, if they use pebbles, and if they use like rocks to wipe tissue would be more effective in wiping then that therefore, it is absolutely fine to just wipe with tissue and not use water. If you want to use water that is preferred, because I advise that people you know the advice the women to tell to instruct their husbands to use water she said because the Prophet used to do it. Now keep in mind they the majority did not use water because of the scarcity of water. And because it was not part of the customs. Yes, the prophet recommended it. He did not oblige them to

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

use water. But so by the time of any magmatic 100 years later, biopharma medic, it was not a medic said, This is what women do. What did he say this is what women do, washing with water said this is not what men do that is a medic. So he said in our town, Which one is that? That's the Medina of the Prophet. Men don't do that. Men don't wash with water. Eman medic did not know of the report where I said you know instructed or or it may have not come to him through an authentic

00:45:41--> 00:45:42


00:45:43--> 00:46:11

But at the end of the day, don't make a big deal of it. This is this is not really part of the foundation. So the deep part of the foundations of our Deen that we wash with water because most of the Sahaba and into the time of Eman Matic where you just you're not washing with water, it is recommended to us with water, because that's what the prophet SAW said and did you know, but it's not such a big deal.

00:46:12--> 00:47:09

And then you wipe three times. And then he said that this applies when the mutualistic Mary Tell me about the credit amount they're on harder. Wiping would suffice only if the filth that existed did not go beyond the area that is usually that it usually touches. So if someone soiled his thigh, then he needs to wash this not wipe it. Wiping now is not applicable anymore. So someone got some urine on his thigh or something else on his thigh. They need to wash it with water wiping it applies only to the two exits, how they're going to do exits, it has to be washing. Then he said what do you mean Seraphim a satin pair? fewer than three wipes that remove all the fields will not be sufficient.

00:47:10--> 00:47:23

Because Hadith Sandman Muslim reported from Sandman that he was told to your prophet had taught you about everything, even Execration. He said yes, proudly. He said yes, he taught us about all of these things, is you know,

00:47:25--> 00:47:38

part of the greatness of the Prophet that he taught us about the details of all the Indian and no one is Allah he said I'm said he will tell you of all things beyond the Comforter, they call them the Comforter, but it is Mohammed Salah, the Praiseworthy,

00:47:39--> 00:47:51

he said that I would have to leave so that he comes in when he comes, He will tell you of all things. So that so they said that is a man and he said yes, he taught us about all things he does not face the pillar.

00:47:52--> 00:48:06

Why while defecating or urinating, and he taught us to not make a stranger or not clean ourselves with less than three rocks and he taught us to not use the right hand and he taught us not to clean ourselves with bones or done.

00:48:08--> 00:48:53

And then so not with less so three wives or more than three wives and more than three wives four would be permissible, five would be better because it's worth it's odd number, but four is permissible to is not permissible has to be three or more where it is what is the amount of people that are hidden, why according to Hitler, roswaal Hassan, why am I the who every pure substance here this every pure substance that could remove the filth, Monty could remove the fields may be used for wiping except for the excrement of animals, bones, bones and sacred or respected material. So, you will not get like you know, like scriptures and or paper papers,

00:48:54--> 00:49:12

anything that is sacred or anything that is respected or anything that is useful, useful, you should not use it. The scholar is even talking about not using parts of animals, because you know, if you have a cow next to you, you could use the tail of the cow. But the scholars

00:49:15--> 00:49:25

the scholars said that you should not use parts of animals because because that is lack of respect. You know, that is disrespectful to the animal.

00:49:27--> 00:49:38

I guess we were 30 minutes past the time so but but we cover that and trouble you go and read the rest in the book. If there is anything that we skipped

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

over lunch
