This is just an informal law question and answer session which we are having with
an enforcer and Associates
I suppose that the brothers and surely they should wish to have any, any particular questions
feel free to
express them inshallah.
As you know,
the problem with the session like this question might come from, from the field, so to speak,
chalet to be close by, so that you might ask something they are more familiar with, or you might ask a question in which the answer doesn't come to my mind. And it comes to those brothers mind. Or you might ask me something that I know nothing about the shallow windows on the web. So, now here, and brother refers you for more support.
So, with that, we'll open the floor
When I first converted, my conversion was not for reasons of faith, for other reasons. And I have recently been attempting to
increased my man.
And I heard a statement recently of a companion, I'm not sure which companion it was, but it went something like, first of all, we learned faith. And then we learned the Quran by which we were increased in faith. And I can't find any information on what this companion meant by first of all, we learned faith and how that was taught to them. And that's my question and sure enough, you know, the answer to that
must be old enough for you.
this, this payment has been made, as has been narrated from more than one hobby.
One of them
I cannot speak that.
For example, it has been narrated from
in discussing the Quran and the people who will come later
who will read the Quran, but they will not get the same effect from the Quran as the Sahaba. Because the Sahaba as as you stated, they got Eman first, in other words,
they were taught the kind of things
you have to repeat the question.
Question was about statements of some Sahaba about the fact that they learned
they learned to learn first and then they learn the Quran or others asking in particular to himself and hope that he will increase Eman.
as I was mentioning, and if the hover they had an understanding where they were taught what it really means to be a Muslim person. Now once you have this understanding, once you have this image in your heart, then anything that comes to you from the Quran
to be easy for you to apply it to be easy for you to understand because you have the right framework to understand it you have the right framework for pride and so forth. So, if a person has Eman And then he is given the Quran. In other words, the application or the practical aspects of the plan as well as aspects related to happiness. As long as he has a foundation, he will take everything from the ground and he will benefit
the best of his ability from from.
So for example, some of the things that brother Ali discussed
If you have the complete faith
and trust and certainty in the Word of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and you have the hope in Allah subhana wa das
You have the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have the love for Allah subhanho wa Taala if you have that than any portion of abroad that you come to and he has a view, you will reply you will accept and so forth. However, if you are
on shaky grounds in any of those aspects
then your application will be lacking and even your understanding of the plan will be lacking if you do not really actually have a from Eman that will actually be
something that will block you or keep you from really totally understanding the Quran. Now,
that statement is not to be understood that there's something like amen and the Quran has nothing to do with it. Obviously, the the arguments or the aspects of Eman that they get from the public defender either through the revelation of the Quran, or through wisdom that this is what in them they're in.
But because the Quran was revealed over time, with respect to them, they had those aspects of the man first. And then many of the more practical aspects of the aspects related to daily life and so forth were revealed later. So they already had a strong foundation and then whenever anything came from,
they had the strong foundation, they were able to understand it and they were they were able to
apply it correctly. So what we can we can understand from that
is that the more our Eman is on a firm foundation, the more we can benefit and apply the Quran quickly. So the more we understand the principles of Eman what there is to believe, and we talk about the men.
Usually we talked about, we give lectures about athletes that
actually the athlete is not the exact original Quranic term, the original Corolla term we talk about today we're talking about inner and inner and when we use it by itself, we're not talking about just some theoretical things that we believe in. But we're talking about a man we talked about use the word by itself that includes Islam, that includes any what we're talking about, is not just some things to believe in, but also how do we apply those things in our life
and the relationship between what we believe and and how we apply them. And the more we understand where we're supposed to believe, the more our faith the more our certainty increases, then the the actions inshallah will flow from it. So by stressing these aspects of the faith and believing
belief and getting more knowledge about the essentials of the deen
to increase the arena and this will help us then apply the Quran understand the crossover,
in other words is referring to some as some aspects that if we know them, if we understand them properly, those will help inshallah,
in our application,
very little to add, because when Saba said that
we learned man, and then we learned.
So the question arises, how did you learn? How did you learn?
Did you go to any particular madrasa
do any particular exercise, which was increasing the minimum,
you come to not only one thing that they used to come to the process of loading and saving his company,
and because he was the source of a very strong demand, so when we listen to his sayings, and his reading of the plan, they are increased injury man, and this
is Martin Fowler.
Then the Quran read unto them, the demand is increased, it means that there is an initial demand in them, when a man becomes Muslim, there is a demand now, but this man needs to be developed needs to be strengthened and how it is strengthened, that is with the company of good people. So it means that the whole thing which is stress here, that if you want to strengthen women, then have a good company, good company, either run under a fundamental teachers, that is one of the things which is going to strengthen demand. And the other thing is theoretical of the plan itself. Because plan has itself said that if you read Quran, every man would be would be strong. So this is what
Saba meant that we emphasized upon Eman, strengthening the mind. And this strengthening was done through the company of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and through the Parana
Mr. lovak, are not to actually think that either
because they covered the question, but perhaps there's an additional point that might bring benefits to us all, is that it's how do we increase our faith?
The way we increase our faith is really we can describe into two ways. There's a general right. And then there is some specific ways
to be brief as far as the general way, it is to contemplate upon our laws,
allow signs, those which have been revealed, and those which have been created, and then to act in accordance with those signs. In other words, to benefit from Alas, Revelation, and to reflect upon the creation, and then act accordingly. In general, as far as specifically, there are many ways to increase one's state. And I will just list a few of them very briefly.
The first way is to know about names and attributes. The paragraphs that have said Verily belonging to allow are 99 names, men
who enter Paradise. Now this word
knows these names, he prays to allow through these names. And then he also worsened a lot by the implications of these names.
And that's another discussion unto itself, but the point is, is to know about names and attributes. The second way is to know the Prophet Mohammed Cyrus, to know about his fear of his life history, to know about his dragons, to know about his characteristics, which distinguishes him from other human beings. This is another word for increases when one's fate. The third way to preach one's faith is to know the good qualities of scribes distinguishes them from other faiths and all other Creed's This is another way to increase one's faith. A fourth way is, as a chef said, is to read the artist to contemplate upon it, asked him this also was a way to increase one's fate. Another way is to
remember a loss of time by saying those statements, which one is supposed to say, upon waking up and going to bed, upon
upon entering into the restroom, leaving the restroom, upon eating, and finishing, from eating, and so forth. These things that one says during the day, this also increases his fate. So here I've outlined for you four or five ways that increases one say, and it behooves each and every one of us to take one of these specific paths, AND gate all of these paths and to start to train ourselves upon them. First by knowing a lot of names and attributes, and to understand them properly, and then to worship or map through them. Second, to know about the present time, aside from his dragons, his characteristics, his life history, or to know about those aspects of Islam, which distinguishes us
from all other faiths, for us to know about, recycle put on often, and also to recite those prayers, as we say, at morning and at evening.
by saying this is also to the
people who organize this camp, that
the lack of demand for our weakness in MN, and increasing event these are without, without a doubt,
two of the most important if not the two most important
or weaknesses that we are facing as Muslims in the world today. And so therefore, it would be
if Muslim organizations whoever they made whichever ones, they maybe
would take the time to stress this and perhaps even give a complete cancer complete
conference whatsoever about a man and how to increase
but as he
mentioned quite a few points, there's, of course, others, but even the the even what is Amen, what is the concept of the man it's so this is something that needs to be discussed.
The ways to increase our aim and the ways of getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala the past to become the one of the earlier of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
These are all very important topics, which sometimes we are lacking in our discussion covering them to add to some of the points that
you mentioned. One important way of increasing your Eman and your love for Allah subhana wa tada is to recognize the bounty that Allah subhana wa Taala has given you in this world.
The most important of those bounties is the bounty of the man itself and bringing you to Islam and so forth. We're also another way of increasing your mind is by doing good deeds,
and this is actually a topic which sometimes gets down to full circle
level the relationship between these and Eman and faith? And how did affect faith and how deeds can either strengthen or weaken? So the question
I believe it's a very important question for, for all of us. And as I said, I recommend that we some things,
either and whatever organizations, whether local or otherwise, we take the time to study this question and give it what it deserves
another book with another group that's out, and that have five points, or five points, that they're savage Islam, that they want to establish Islam. The second point is, is that is Amal Medina. Now the point is, you make a local lesion to the mirror.
What is the fifth point? I'm trying to say? What the fifth point, but the five points that are difficult to align? My question is, how can someone establish Islam has already been established? Does any group have the right to make a lesion to the mayor instead of Allah?
So the brother was asking a question concerning the existence of a group, which has based its
its message upon five points among witches, that is called the establishment of Assad. And that occurs to the giving of an allegiance to a surgeon and the year that it talks about the action of the people of Medina as a matter of a fellow ratted mentioned remembrances around and at this point, which
has forgotten. And the question that has some parts to it, one is concerning, can we say that we are to establish this lab, even though it's not hasn't already established, maybe give allegiance to someone other than another person, and other issues that can a group say that it's under attack to establish Islam,
we should know, first of all that
Assad is that we arrested him without a sense of the past.
And the prospects of his firm, that his community is among those who would say that, you know,
Muslims were divided to 73 groups, out of these groups would go to the Hellfire, except for one. And that same group would be those who upon that he was upon as his companions. on that very day, meaning the son was he taught to the companions, because as you know, among the tasks of the firefighters to teach, and instruct the believers in the book of Scripture,
and the wisdom which is a sinner
is one who
has conferred a great favor
among the believers that he has sent from amongst themselves, in the other human being a messenger to get to an agent that he respects upendra is worth Genie that he in terms of this is the words of Allah. And he teaches him that we use a key and that he purifies them from their sin in a sense by following Him and OBEY Him independent house by Sunday fuel price in the sense, the third matter which we are discussing, wow. Well, you know, who was the cover when that he instructs him or his teachers of the Scripture descriptor which is asked, and the technical wisdom which is a similar pattern, haematocrit.
For the assignments the pattern
contains is the flower and the peptide Center has been formed as a discussant would we name from generation to generation, it says that it would never be left because the avatar for them is enough profit before the day of judgment, and a lot of evidence to show that not
not succeeding generations was better that was that his community 73 groups would appear 72 would follow, not satisfied with the pattern 100 pricing is competitive with silos, and its promises does not fit and a red group would fall out of the parking companions and therefore they would be guarded in this world they will be successful with your assets. This group, by the definition, and by the agreement, or five establishes itself are those who refer to as the sender, which
are the people who adhere to the sender, and the people who adhere to the DMR the community and that community means the privacy for him and his companion. And this term, Addison was a law has two senses to determine when it's applied. It's applied in two meanings. One sense, in a general sense, meaning the person is not from the Shia. Those revival the Prophet companions because of all of the deviant groups,
To have the most enmity towards the Prophet companions, or the Shia, so much so that if you have a Christian was to come up to your zoo, and ask you, you ask, Are you a Sunni or Shia? meaning in the sense that it's known as a cry out of that party who adheres to what the prophets companions were upon the specific sense which is the sense which is being praised as if it means those who stick to what was known, historically added heavy into historical time. And now they might,
or might not depending upon their locale, or their,
their area, these people have a certain amount of belief that they have a certain way of worship which they have taken from the province by some guidance. And it is the faith which we identify with the classical scholars of Islam, among whom being the 14th as an ISA, Shafi, Malik, and also the scholars of Hadith, in Bukhari,
and Muslim and other and other scholars throughout the centuries. Now, any group that appears after that, or any individual who appears after those early generations of Muslims, all we have to do is you have to check what they are preaching to, does it agree to that which Allah, thanks to the Prophet Muhammad SAW setup and which he gave to his companions or not, in those matters in which they are in agreement with, we accept, in those matters, which we they are in disagreement to, we reject. And the way we deal with it depends upon how far they are away from that which Allah gave us.
So if at least to shirk, and disbelief, we are very briefly against if it leads to something which is a mistaken opinion, we say that this is an incorrect opinion, however the person is correct, receives a reward for his trying exercising his opinion and trying to reach the truth. So in other words, there's different degrees, and we take different stances according to that. Now, with that being said, specifically to the
establishment of Islam, perhaps what people mean by that is they want to revive the city. In other words, route Islam in the societies of the Muslims. And if that is your intent by that, and there's nothing wrong with that, if they intend by that, that Islam is no longer existing in the world, and only they have this club. And this is a property that is first of these bathrooms that are always made run purposes, upon the truth. So sound has not been lost for so many days to establish in the sense that to bring it up as we buy different guests that's possible, as far as remembrance of Allah, that also is the departure city out as far as the action of the people of Medina, also, this
is part of the people, Medina, in the sense of the prophets, companions in the early generations is also praiseworthy to follow.
And giving a region in under circumstances run massive allegiance, like in a Muslim country, when they have a Muslim ruler, even if he's a tyrannical ruler or an empire for one must give the oath of allegiance to refer. So, sometimes these issues might have a valid basis. And now whether this group specifically is really applying to show you or not, we have to then look at your graph and look at their work. And then see exactly is your claim like or act like that. And often, you know, when they usually say Our job was based upon these pointers, or sometimes they are not really applying it for us.
My wife, we looked at what the head in this pamphlet was the Quran has said it took some of the Quran and they use some of the wording of the Quran and it took an added to it. They have Sorokin, Isaiah 20. It's not even in the Quran.
It's not even in the Quran, not that can be found. We have five cards and we cannot find it. That is what they were saying in the Quran. It's like they take the words, and they turn it around to kind of fit what they want people to think. So like I went home, and I talked to one of the guys in this, I guess Zuma in the sense that he was saying that I really disagree with and he was saying some of the things that propublica Selim said, but it wasn't really what he said, you know, who some of you know, you seek knowledge and knowledge. But But what it meant by that is that we, you know, he said you posted out it was special for you. I said that that means that you just don't stay in one
locality and you, you don't do anything to learn your knowledge. But he took on a challenge to some other way to mean something else. So it's just, they, they use an ethics and religions and
the word is kind of like hatred. It's kind of like they use the word coup for a lot. It's quite rare against debt if the man is worthless and a whole lot of stuff.
When you first mentioned the group, I assumed that I had an inclination as to who they were, and what you have said, Now I have a stronger inclination. But my point is, is that
you know, it's important I think that we understand
Principle, a yardstick by which we can judge all people and all groups and all societies by and that yardstick is what Allah subhanaw taala sent to His Prophet Muhammad Barcella and what his companions were upon. Once we know that yardstick ourselves through knowledge and action, we can then measure other groups and other people to see how much they have fit that yardstick or how much you know, close to that yardstick they are or how much have they deviated from that. And so that's why I'd like to stress that, you know, to condemn this specific group
is not as beneficial as for us to my opinion as for us to learn this yard, okay. So once we know this yardstick, then we will not be able to know every single group, which is but the group which you mentioned, I mean, it's my feeling gut feeling as to who they are,
then they are an ashtray group and of course, you have things which is true and correct. But in general, they have some things which are astray.
They probably hybrid.
So I mean, in that instance, again, if you were to Florida, and either conflict or some I guess I could be searching as to who they are, to, maybe by the weather address, perhaps they would be able to answer something or if not, I would be watching.
Yeah, that's fine. All right.
to men, and also like selling like the hair color short pants are short should they be could you could they be above the knees? Or do they have to be below the knees?
And also went out question about smoking.
Smoking around wasn't allowed.
checkbox on your American question.
As I'm sure you're aware of it is forbidden for for men to wear silk gum.
It is permissible for women to wear silk garments. So if you're if you're if you're selling something, which is specifically meant for men, and it's a suit garments, equipment for men, and
the garment itself actually you cannot see the garments themselves around because it could be used for other purposes it could be
used as material to make something for women or something of that nature. But in general,
if you're if you have a garment which is Silbermann made for men, and it is to be used by men and most likely in order to be worn by men,
if your customers are looking then for sure you should not should not sell it.
If your customers are non Muslim, then in the books of soccer, there is some discussion about certain items which are haram for us and which might be headed for
strong opinion online and
even that is you should you should leave and you should not should not servicing.
So the first question was about
Oh, and then about shorts. Okay.
Again, it's a similar type thing, shorts
any shorts by themselves or not?
I mean, for example, suppose you have some shorts, which are
from a similar perspective, but even this kind of shorts going to be worn just by a man in front of his wife. It does not.
But if you again, sometimes you have to bring in
some other principles looking at the situation in which you're getting, if you notice by filling the shorts which go above the B, which did not cover the order.
If you if you study the issue of smoking in you and you see this, some of the principles and exam is that if the mustard or the evil of something clearly outweighs the benefits of something that it does. So you can bring many
Even from home smoking, and I don't know how many benefits unless you're from North Carolina, I don't know how many benefits you can get from
schools who, who I know who I consider very reputable over them
added something that they neglected to mention. And that is if you have a skin problem.
And because of that your skin is sensitive to other types of fabric, and you're forced to wear silk, it is permissible for you to assume because nowadays, I don't think with all the different types of fabrics,
if you're allergic to cotton, there's going to be polyester, somebody else probably can find something other than software, which would be best for you if it leads me to avoid suspicion why this man wasn't
brother was asked, Is it permissible for a capper, who has a job that's against the Sharia, keep his earnings and everything he bought with it? If he reverts to Islam and becomes a Muslim, in other words, a brother who was afraid of proof right now, but maybe considering becoming a Muslim, but he had some foreign sources of income at that time, was No peeking keep his ill gotten gains or whatever, after he becomes Muslim.
The question is about the death of someone who's capital right now, who was earning wealth and illegal means,
from the Sharia point of view?
Is it permissible for him to keep that Well, after he becomes Muslim?
on this question, most of the scholars are pretty much consistent. And they bring examples from the lifetime of the policy. There were some
people in place,
who were known to animate some of their wealth to
river or alcohol or gambling or whatever. And the film had never told any of them,
that this money is not not allowed for them. Because as long as they are captured, and of course,
a difference of opinion among the
point which I will not get into. But
as long as they are
expected, let me put it this way. So I avoid all those differences, any long as expected to abide by the Sharia, except for those things, and the Islamic State that they're forced to abide by. And
secondly, once they become Muslim, Islam wipes away any of the false deeds, any of the wrong gives the city before, of course, the upcoming check, which is the greatest, wrong,
this is the greatest gift that you can connect.
So when he becomes Muslim, because of those things, that he had those ways, which he got, well, illegally before it's done, he will not be accountable for what he did before it's done. And there is no principal really has to give up their work, however,
that shows that if he returns to those same ways of getting work knowingly, knowing that it is, then it will be held accountable for the work that he did in Islam and be able to see the journey.
Yes, I'd like to ask,
in terms of maybe you can expound on in terms of alcohol.
There are some brothers that are merchants. And a lot of times you find brothers, that are merchants, when they go out to merchants that go among solos to do a merchant. And when you approach these brothers, they say, Well, I'm not I'm not drinking, my intention is just to go do business. So it's been a lot of controversy in terms of them,
you know, going into this place where alcohol is served to do their marketing, even though they say to Dan catching this, not to drink
or these type of things. So I'd like to know, you know, to is an opinion on that in terms of going into these places to do this.
Well, just the general merging not
just like the brother had mentioned here, in terms of selling sale, or whatever, but it's just a merchant in general, not necessarily a competent, but there's a lot of Muslims that don't have a problem.
Going into these places where alcohol is served. So is that permissible?
bar like like Yeah.
Take this one.
Even quiet, we don't want you to fall asleep.
Brando says a loving
drama, those people who do not witness
witness Zoo azura, something false
and when the past the past as identity as again. So what explanation is given that is the festival's admission, again, that the darker than the festival doesn't mean this is the one explanation is
an attempt in this ayah you can say that the person should advise to go to certain places where wine is served, or wine is sold, he should avoid it. And actually, I'm not inclined to say that it is totally, totally Haram. But there is at least he says that try to avoid the places
of doubt, which can lead you to have. So that may be the criterion a person should try to avoid.
But to me, it seems that it is not totally, totally Haram, the professor Lawson has said that don't sit on a table where the glasses of wine are being used. So it does sit even with those people who aren't drinking wine, but we are just sitting there giving a lesson or da even that is not required that is not
so what about going to such market such type of
things are being being sold.
This comes to my mind.
Another General, I'd like to mention
the more general principles, I just like to mention it for all of us.
which begins the process. What does
what does Hello,
Diana with this Hello screen with aromas clear, one of the one of the principles that we get from this headache,
you should avoid doubtful matters. And when you're when you're worried about matters, you make your religion clean or innocent from any kind of suspicion.
And what that means is the Muslim should not only avoid those things that are more doubtful, but also he should do his best to avoid putting himself in such a situation where people will be suspicious that
none of us entering bars, okay, you say you're going in for one purpose. But people might just see you going to bars and come out of bars and going to bars. So therefore, these people begin to get an impression of you that somehow there's something strange about you that you're going into bars and so forth.
When you don't have I mean, obviously street vendors, I don't believe
that they have to
go into into bars to tend to their business. So therefore there are openings for people to question them and have doubt about them. And this is something that we as Muslims should have already in in the province of Finland when he was working with one of his wives. And some of the Sahaba saw sudden
he brought them over he said this is my wife. And he said he warned them about me they said they had no suspicion about him but the one shift on flows
and human like like the flowing of the breath, and human. So avoiding suspicion is one of the characteristics of the believers. And it is something that we want to protect our Deen if we want to make our society our community as good as possible. We should apply this principle that not just worry about what is halaal and one thin line between Hello but also we should avoid anything
Results are anything that may lead people who have suspicions about us and so forth. That's why the tune is who will be shallow pure, will not be facing any of the problems that we're facing nowadays in which someone does something that because it could be understood three or four ways, and some who don't understand it.
Explain it in a way, which is not good, and that gets fed and so forth. So if we do our best to
not to involve ourselves in any question, we're suspicious. And if we do to explain it to everyone, look, this is what happened. And it's not that maybe, I think if we apply this principle in our community as a whole, and we teach this to the other brothers and sisters in the community, our community inshallah will be much better off because one of our problems that we have in many communities are kind of personal problems that arise because people do someone does something. And let's say what he did is open to question and leads to doubts.
One similar incident,
once I was invited to speak to some very small gathering of English people, and Islam, so and the address to get to me, was seven.
So at that time, I didn't know what this is. I don't know, actually, what are the names of the province? So
yes, that's it. So I took it to London, because it was right inside Piccadilly. So I'm looking for that address. So I entered into the pavement, which was surrounded by a fence from two sides. So I locked into it until I came to an end because the fence was closed in front of me. So I said, instead of going back all the way back, should I jump upon it. I wasn't there at that time.
So I jumped, I jumped, and I fell down, my glasses fell down on the earth, and even the book in my hands. And I think I injured my ankle. So somebody assisted me to stand up.
And then I sat on a bench, just on the pavement, then I looked in front of me, there was a table in front of me, but the pain started increasing. So after a while I went inside the robot, just when I entered it was a bar.
So I said, Where is the gathering the setups, there wasn't a set, the group was waiting for me. So I told them that this happened to me, and I'm feeling too much pain. So there was a lady Doctor
Who gave me some, some samples.
So I said, Let me talk about the about the why and why it is private in Islam, because I saw that this is a bar
at the end of that lecture, anyhow. But they asked me what do you like to drink? So with that plug and wine, of course, and for me a soft drink sauce at the end of the lecture, it was too much painful for me. So I wanted to go down, and of course, retreat. So they said, can we help you going down to the bar to the subject. So I thought, if I came out of the bar in such a way that too many
people think about me
I will be myself. So I went to myself and then I searched the taxi and went back to home. So then I was thinking why this happened to me, I went for a very good car
accident. So this address came to me which said that dogs even sit on a table where the glasses of wine has been served. So I said that it may not be a good action on my part to respond to this. when needed.
The Afro American communities, brothers who are embracing Islam, and they have lived with women are married, they have children.
some will tell you, we have seen also that some of these people, after so many years in business, the woman might decide to take to heart and also become Muslim.
What does the sooner
on this as far as
Having women who are not Muslim but having children, because all over, we have been different faces, people are now becoming Muslim. But this is a situation that exists. What is the sooner they will got this year?
The question is what do you do with these women? Now that they have become Muslims, the brothers, but the women are not, but they have children
who are married?
just wished me a question maybe a little bit more specific.
Obviously, if they
and he has not met, so he has,
what does he do now with a woman and
I think it's pretty clear,
at least with respect to the woman,
the woman is obviously absolutely happy for him.
He cannot have any any kind of relations with her so far, with respect to with respect to the children that he had.
We find that in the, in the time of Julia, during the time of the analysis, and before the time,
there was different forms of marriage or different ways of marriage. And even though three quarters of those forms of marriage were not approved by the Sharia,
as they were considered marriage by that culture.
And they were considered marriage, and the children were considered legitimate. Then also in Islam, they were considered
the gentleman, that person. So here in this country, the culture here is there is a marriage and there is
I mean, there's something there's institution of marriage, it's very clear what is marriage, and there are things there are illicit relationships outside of marriage. So if a person enters into Islam, and he has had legitimate relationships, from that cultural point of view,
then those those people, for example, he's still married to them, they're considered still considered his wife. And if he had children from them, they're considered his legitimate children. However, if he did not have any kind of legitimate marriage, then those children and those were those women obviously, are not his wife. Those children are not considered legitimate children, and they are attributed to the mother and not to the Father. In other words, they are not legally his children. His
question was, what does he do that he just was
How can you have a divorce without marriage?
by Lw Muslims? We don't have the answer. This is why we asked you. What does he do now? Because asking, What do I do to these women and the children? That's the question they don't want to marry. So that's what I want to find out. Because we have to add, you have to go back with me. That's
my answer that this woman is absolutely forbidden for me. That's what we need to know. Yeah. This I mentioned that this woman is absolutely forbidden. If he did not marry her, and he doesn't matter, no. I mean, so it's
As I said, the children if he did not marry her, it was not even in Gambia, it was not recognized as a marriage. In other words, even in Geneva, it is considered an illegitimate child, even in Jamia the Sharia is not respected as a
the father is still required to take care of the child, whether he had legitimately or not. So how does that work? And as long as I mean, what sort of financial? Supposing the mother does it, you know, push him, or at least turns him into the Child Support Agency.
Even though he's required still to pay, you know, financial support to this child? How is it in Islam?
If your question
has a situation where he is, so to speak first to get child support?
That's your question. Yeah, I can see. So it doesn't matter.
Okay, so are you asking what should he do in a case where he is being forced to support that show?
That's your question.
Is it not disturb is not financially responsible for
if it is not a legitimate child is not financially responsible for it. Now, if he's forced to, like other things in this society, when you are forced to do something, let's say like, getting car insurance, if you're forced to it, wants to do it. And the and the harm from not doing it greatly outweighs
any of it, there's a great deal of harm that will come to you, if you don't do it. So therefore you're forced to do it, then it is best to
dispute to oblige.
With that thing that you're forced to do in this type of society. So similar in that, in that situation, if you, if you have a choice between paying some dollars a month or being put into prison, obviously, from Islamic point of view, you have the option to pay that is better, and it from a science point of view than being forced to implement.
If you don't pay for it,
that means you're being pushed.
That's what I said that in that case, it is better to pay than being put in prison.
If you can, if you can avoid a greater harm by lesser harm, then you should do so. So being put into prison, there's no benefit, unless you think you're gonna make Gollum prison or something that otherwise there's not no benefit to being put into prison. I mean, the harm that you're causing you and the society and maybe the Muslims as a whole and even doubt as a whole will be greater than sacrificing some money for this.
