Santa Monica de la Marcato, thank you for joining us and actually the class today inshallah we'll discuss the issue of the Mima, whether it is from the Quran, or from anything else, we discuss the definition of the term EMA and we said the term EMA is something that you hang for protection.
This is the definition of the meme and the plural of the Mima called demand, the translation of it is incantation or amul. So what's the ruling? Or what's the verdict if someone has something seeking for protection?
if it's permissible, why it is permissible, and if it's not permissible, if it's prohibited, why it is prohibited, our ultimate aim are all incantations the same, or they're they are different according to what
you hang. And we will have several scenarios someone
have a necklace with a picture of a righteous person. And you ask him why you hang this necklace with that picture, he would say for protection. So what's the ruling here? What can you say? You may be asked this question from a person or even in the exam. I may ask you this question. So what do you say what are the proofs or someone puts the Quran
she has the Quran around her neck or even underneath the bed, the the pillow? And you ask why you're putting this and he or she says for protection. So what's the ruling here? Is it permissible or is not permissible?
What do you say what did you read what the author mentioned in the book?
If someone hang the Quran in the car, and he cannot read it, it's just put there for protection.
These are many cases where
you have people do this or someone he hangs the
horseshoe or the blue eye
on the back of the door why you do this for protection? I don't want my house to be robbed.
What do you say?
Is it permissible or not?
They are depending on these things. They are not depending on
the last panel time so if you depend on things then
it's not permissible.
that thinks it is not that
why do you take the medicine?
Why do you take the medicine?
from sickness right I want to be healed. I want the cure. Why it's not sure I
shouldn't you depend on Allah subhanaw taala
so you need to be able to say
Rokia now we're talking about
What about medicine?
Doing medicine is similar to dude. Okay? So you're saying okay, it's permissible
because the prophets are seldom did it? So the medicine becomes like Roca. So someone comes and says to me, my becomes like, okay, and medicine.
So why you make it forbidden? They have anything from online students? Yes.
They have the belief that Allah subhanaw taala protect them if they put the
Yeah. So does that make it permissible if I put the blue eye or the shoehorn
the horseshoe and I say, allow to protect but this will help also protecting
you had something to say?
Yes, Allah Exactly. That's what you're looking for. Allah has put cure in the medicine. The same thing Allah put protection in this
But Allah has not why
Why you had some things in this?
it is minor shake to say other than Allah will help Why?
If I asked you to help me I committed minor shake
if someone said please help me you committed minor shake that's why you need to be careful you need to know exactly what you're saying with the evidences you have to provide the evidence for anything you say.
These things can What
can you take torkel reliance dependence on las panatela What about the medicine?
Why don't you trust in Allah subhanaw taala that he will cure you and don't take medicine
depends on your intention. Yeah, what what are you trying to say?
again, we need an answer people do this many people do this action.
There is a clear Hadith for weddings the MIME and raffia correct. And it says chick, however.
I will say 200 of the landed okay.
And the prophets or cinema proved him.
So what do you say Abdullah for this hadith?
You opened the book later on? Not now. You were supposed to do that earlier.
Okay, so what was the answer?
Yes, if someone hangs or Metallica, Tommy Matan holla at him, Allah Allah May Allah not complete his, his need or his intention or his purpose what he intended to do. So again, it is back to the evidences, the prophet SAW sent him for bed hanging something, it is true, what Bezier said what others said that it will make you dependent on other than Allah subhanaw taala. Now, in general, you should depend rely only on Allah subhanaw taala even in things that other people do, now, I may need money. So I go to someone and ask him for money, essentially, I should ask Allah subhanaw taala but it is permissible to ask others to help me with things that they could help with. While this thing,
what's the evidence that it could help you? If there is no evidence from the book of Allah from the Sunnah of the messenger send them then you cannot do it, then it becomes sick, because you are depending on something other than Allah. So it is different. It is different than the medicine. Now the medicine it has a clear a physical reaction. It's proven scientifically proven that when you take this thing, that's what will will happen. Just like when you eat, your heart hungry and you're eating, no one will tell you don't eat, rely on Allah subhanaw taala You have to eat, there is a physical reaction. Once you eat your body digest the food, then you will become stronger. That's not
depending on something other than Allah, there is a physical need the same thing with medicine. And the same thing with other things, if they have physical effect. If there is an evidence that it is permissible, you can do it. If there is no evidence, you cannot do it. It becomes sick.
We take the medicine because the prophet SAW Selim commanded us to he said the DAO
seek cure healing because Allah never sent a disease without sending a cure for it.
The only disease that has no cure his death
cannot protect yourself from this.
But other than that, you should seek the treatment.
So it is not shirk.
Yes, do we have something?
Yeah, Allah we.
Yes, medicine does not have something supernatural. As I said. It has physical physical
influence. But the other things you claim, actually it doesn't have but people claim that it has supernatural power. Where's the evidence? Where's the pure? Where's the proof? So now you are attributing something to objects without basis?
That's true Saba also, now you're given, you're giving these
these objects, the rights of Allah subhanaw taala, who protects you?
Allah subhanaw taala. So when you say others can protect me while they cannot, now if they can, it is not sure anymore, just like the example of the bodyguard. Now, if someone has a bodyguard behind him, and you ask why you are having this person, he says to protect me. They may people come in through this and he will stop them. That's not there is nothing wrong with it. No one says this is shook because again, this is a person who can do a clear job. You're not saying that he can do things, which he cannot. Or he can do hidden things, supernatural things.
is worrying amulet major or minor ship? What did we say about that? It is minor. Unless there are cases where it becomes major shift. And actually, that's what I'm expecting from you. I need the answer from you. And therefore I need everyone. Whoever has the book.
Please open the book on page 51.
PAGE 51. It's really important what the author mentioned about
Bit shifts the one we're in chapter six.
Who wants to read?
Okay, what is the mic?
Are they are they?
Okay, anyway, we're, for the sake of time, we don't have
much of time actually. Can you try? Just try. Come close to the mic.
Now, what's important is actually the footnote, page 51 chapter six, the footnote that's the important thing. This is the explanation for the entire chapter. Now some of you asked, why is it major or minor? Some of you said why it is forbidden. All these answers are provided here.
Now again, this is really nice statement. Now sometimes you don't know the things until you know they're opposite. We have this practice from the companions like today for the last one. He used to ask the prophets of Salaam about the evil he said the companions used to ask the messengers are certain about good things to do. And I asked him about the evil things to avoid.
So this is another way how you know good things and bad things. How do you not have hate? You know, it's conditions and you know what nullifies the hate to avoid it. Okay, go ahead.
They're not working. Okay, no problem. That's fine inshallah.
It's not working, that's fine. Just, this is really important.
You have you have the answers.
Okay, it's okay. Just be with me. Read what he said here, everybody has the book please read what he said.
Especially in the bottom.
Now, the introduction is nice, but then there are three paragraphs. The sixth line from the bottom one he says,
to wearing string or anything similar, which is like periods, charms, a piece of iron and anything similar that is one also similar to this is is that which is hung in the homes. These are examples now how can we know what are the types or examples
demand, these are few examples that he mentioned
Then on the second page, he mentioned the reason why was this a minor form of shift? Again the question why it is a form of minor shake, why it is not a major shift?
It is on the sixth line from the top from the footnote
the sixth line Count 123456 Why was this a minor form of shift because the person's heart would be attached to it and he would make it a cause of removing affliction or preventing it okay.
The principle in this chapter is that affirming the effective causes is not permissible. Unless it is an islamically legislated cause.
These are very important words, when I asked you to read, I want you to read these things and to know what what they mean.
Why it is a form of minor shirk why it is not a major shift. That's the reason.
So, unless it is an islamically legislated cause, or it is affirmed by actual experimentation, that's what we mean by like medicine, it's physically proven. Now, we discussed something earlier and the previous class actually with other group of students about you know, the copper bracelet,
what do you think of it? Is it permissible or not?
You know, they say it helps you like, reduce your weight or
some problems, what do you think, is it minor shark or it is permissible?
it depends on intention. Well, actually, that's true, it depends on intention, but before that, does it really have
evidence that it affects or not?
If they by experiment, if they found out that it really helps, then it is permissible.
If it did not, then actually even your intention will not help you that much, because you are wearing something which will not help you, but your intention is to heal you. So it becomes just like any other
any other tamiment
So, here this paragraph on page 52, the footnote is very important.
this is your job, you will read the book you will continue reading this chapter.
That will be your part now we need to move on with our class.
Is this ruling that the minima hanging something for a prediction? Is it always the same? Is it always prohibited? Is it always my new shirt even if it was from the Quran or no?
scholars differ on this matter.
Many of them said it is the same even if it's from the Quran. Because the Quran is meant to be read. It's not sent down to for protection.
Now you hit the Hadith whoever hand Jemima May Allah not complete or fulfill his intention. There is another Hadith where the prophet SAW Selim says whoever hangs at the Mima, he will be interested to it mentale nakatomi, mata bucola Allah and again this hadith is mentioned in the book. Now, other people, other scholars said it is permissible if it's from the Quran, because of this hadith. Now you want me to be interested to the thing that I Hank. So if I hang a bracelet, allow not helped me, He will say to the bracelet to help me if it helps or not. And if it does not, then obviously I will not be helped. But when I hang that Quran, the Quran will help me is the word of Allah. So that's an
evidence that it is permissible. So some scholars said it is permissible. Many of them said no, it is not permissible. It's all the same. We have an evidence that the law of natural gas or the law used to put it on his children. And it was narrated that I shall have the law also she did the same. So there is actually a difference of opinions fits from the Quran. Fits not from the Quran.
Something you hang for protection, it is forbidden. Allah is the one who protects you.
It is minor Schick if you
Hang something for a prediction from other than the Quran? Because that's what the prophet SAW Selim said. The only exception if it's from the Quran, some scholars allowed it for a few a hadith while the rest said no,
because it's, it's a means of committing the major shift.
You only rely and depend on Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Okay, now we're moving to
the second issue that we have today. The second type
The second type of
things that we hang or we do, which is Raka. Raka is plural.
the single word is Rokia.
What's the meaning of Rocky?
Or what's the difference between Nokia and tamina?
What's the difference between Nokia and Jemima?
Mima does not have the blessing but he has the blessing.
But even the minima we said it could be from the Quran
then it's allowed. What about the nuclear? Now again, remember, you're defining something so it has to meet all the types of nuclear.
As we said, For Dyneema It is something you hand for prediction, whether it's correct or not correct. Okay, what is it?
rokeya is something recited over someone
incomplete. This cannot be accepted as a correct answer.
I'm not asking whether it's permissible, it's forbidden. What's the nature What's the meaning of
the Mima? We already said that he was something you Hank for protection, yes.
Very good, something which is recited for someone
for healing or cure.
You see the difference now.
incantation it happened, it happens before
the affliction while Rokia it is after
Rokia is after
the Mima something that is hanged. So it could be object physical while Rokia something which is recited.
So these are differences between taneema and broker.
So, is it forbidden or is permissible? What's the difference between okay and taneema? Now I need to know is it does it have the same ruling? It's a form of shark it's a minor shark or it is permissible rocker?
It depends on what you're reciting very good. So that means you're you're implying that we have different forms of Rokia and consequently we have different rulings.
What do you think?
So, tell me if someone recited poetry
is this permissible or not?
What do you think?
Do you have answer yes or
Why you need to give me an evidence. Now again, some people why are you already doing this? Well, it makes me comfortable, I feel comfortable I I feel cured.
You need an evidence.
Okay, what about the Raka from the Quran? Is it permissible or not? Are
you reading the Quran? Why are you reading the Quran for cure? Someone is sick and you read the Quran to cure him or cure? Is it permissible?
Is it permissible or not? Why? Why it is permissible
Yes, Allah says in the Quran was sent down of the Quran that
Which is cure and mercy for the believers. So Allah said that Quran is cure how it is cured by reciting the Quran
for healing by reading the Quran by implementing the Quran all types of Quran are cure,
we have a clearer evidence whatever side they landed in certain Fatiha with the chief of the tribe. Now, he recited certain Fatiha he understood that it is okay. The prophet SAW Selim approved that understanding and he said how he knew that it is rocky because it's true. Okay. So now notice,
if it's from the Quran, there is no disagreement. everybody agreed that it is permissible, unlike the man where even if it's from the Quran, some scholars still said it is forbidden. Okay.
What if it's not from the Quran?
What if the rokeya is not from the Quran? Is it forbidden or it is permissible?
If it's not from the Quran?
Then it is haram. Why?
What's the ruling? Someone did it?
Did they commit chick?
Always you need the evidences. That's why when I refer you to the book, you need to know the Hadith.
And the lessons behind the Hadith.
Back to my question, again, someone reads poetry
broker, is it forbidden or it is permissible?
Do you have an answer? Yes.
Anything other than the Quran is type of schicke
Do you agree?
No, you say no. What do you think? Why?
The Hadith is not shirk. Yeah, you mean no but we are talking about the Rokia.
Okay, someone recites poetry as as Rokia it is haram. So he committed chick
in Arakawa Tama in what do you That's true. In America, what am I What do you wanna shake? The prophet SAW Selim said indeed Raka
the MIME and to Allah they are shocked. But we just mentioned the exception. If it's from the Quran, then it is not sure the Mima fits from the Quran there is difference of opinion. So you cannot take this hadith without exceptions. So again, back to my question, someone would come and argue you say he would say if you say it is true, you have to agree on all types, including the Quran because that's what the Hadith says. That's what we understand from the Hadith.
You will tell him not there is another evidence that excludes the Quran other things remain. There is a hadith came that allowed the Quran What about the other things they are included?
So they agree.
The bottom line is
the rokeya from other than the current allowed or not.
Be it poetry bit. sermon bit any words?
The prophets are seldom used on the Quran. Does that make anything not used forbidden?
Give me answers.
Who decided to Fatiha
Yes, yes, we mentioned that. The cron definitely It's okay. Definitely. There are Hadith that are x but what about other than the Quran? Is it permissible or it's forbidden?
Bismillah is it from the Quran?
Part of it but audible ah
Okay, so let's say we have the Quran and we have the vicar of Allah are the names of Allah. This is another thought it is it permissible or forbidden?
The sun not only allows the Quran to be rocklahoma you'll you'll be held responsible for this statement if
it appeared wrong. Is this true or not? the Sunnah allowed only the crime to be okay.
Now that's the importance when you read the Hadith the prophet SAW Selim said in one Hadith lab at sur Baraka, Milan taco Chica, there is no harm
of doing Rokia as long as it does not include chick.
Very good buzzer. The prophet SAW Sam also said eraldo aleja rokkaku Show me the things that you are doing as a rookie.
And he continued by saying Love is a bit lukewarm, and on the contrary, there is nothing wrong with it okay, as long as it does not include chick. That means, if it's other than the Quran is permissible.
It is permissible. The prophet SAW Selim did not tell them look, you cannot do any Rokia unless it is from the Quran
actually said the opposite. The Roca is allowed, unless it includes schicke so this is another difference between Luca and Tamara into Mima. It's prohibited while rokeya it is allowed
unless we have an evidence proves that the Dyneema is allowed or an evidence that the doctor is sherek they are not so. So there is difference between Dyneema and Rocky.
So again, once you say it Okay, as silk, you have to be careful, what is the evidence that it is silk, you have to read all the ahaadeeth in context. And therefore, again, we need to go back to the book.
There's a book chapter seven, because chapter seven is talking about the doctor,
page 59. Actually, it does not only talk about the doctor, but also it continues talking about the time as well. So, it is important to read both both types of both chapters together. Again, I will read a little bit, I will read the the footnote the footnote is important. Here he says the author, he says this chapter is related to the explanation of the ruling concerning urraca. Again, this is page 59.
urraca is the plural of Rukia. And in actuality, it is supplications and words that are said or recited and then they are blown on to something or someone if you want a definition this is another definition from the book. Some types of ruka or Rukia have an effect upon the limbs of the body sometimes have an effect upon the souls some types of it are permissible and legislated and other types are shipped. The legislator has allowed a rocker that is free of a shift the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Lavazza Rocha man and Shaka, there is nothing wrong with Raka as long as it is not shake, you see, so, this is the beginning of the chapter with this hadith that it is
permissible or there is nothing wrong with Roca as long as it does not include Shrek. Now, later on, he adds and he elaborates on this meaning until the end of the chapter. So you have to read this chapter chapter seven until page 65, the lessons derived from
the Hadith of the messenger cisilion about rottier.
Now with this inshallah, we will,
will conclude our session about demand and Rocco hado salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali Asahi agement
