For the sake of almost kind of without any kind of without a make all of us from among those people who will get.
But a couple
questions are not obligatory, by the way.
Try to make questions as easy as
getting noticed by multiple choice
In practical terms, if you could give some advice, firstly, on
his motorcycle maybe nowadays,
It's been a long time getting to be detailed
other things before the
end where the father would take the phone, maybe every month or
every few years, whatever, sometimes many people including

what would you do with 360 K.
clear or definitive guidance about how much
how often people should leave.
my own personal belief and my own personal experience that no one should go any day without reading at least some part.
And actually, what I mean by that really is not just reading in the sense of reading. And it is, of course, something very important.
I mean, just the reading part of it and memorization, even even one of the most important things that I must stress not directly related to this discussion.
Of course, it is indirectly is to attend the follow up the prayers in Japan,
especially if you can the budget for it. Because
if you have a mark where there's good
someone and qualified to be in Al
Qaeda, he's going to recite something that you know, which in which case, you will be reminding you
refresh your mind about it, or he'll be reciting something that you do not have memorized. And so therefore, it is like someone reading fuse upon among the Sahaba, even the publicist to the Muse to have some sense some of the other to read to him upon release him, he asked
to read to him. So when you attend this a lot, especially.
And besides all the importance of the genre,
benefit by getting always hearing at least some, even if you're busy
during the day, or the evening,
and you still perhaps don't have time, maybe to sit down and read much of the Quran, and you just thought, which is obligatory upon you anyway, to attend the congregational prayer, you will shall be able to hear at least some Quran every day. And but as I said,
I don't think anyone should go with the if possible without reading the Quran and turning to some tissues. And in other words, we didn't even
see it on a daily basis. And the reason I say that,
nowadays is that of course, the amount of guidance
and the amount of strengthening of our event is torsional
are directly related to the amount of fitna that we have to go through and the amount of strength that we need in our lives.
Those of us living in the West.
Those of us living in the West, and we, as you know, when we go out, and it is in front of us all the time, if you go to school you're going to be taught.
Even some people think
you're going to be caught many times even
when you read the people, when we look around you there's always this for evil. And
especially in our in our situation, we should feel any really,
I believe that if we really had strong Eman, we will be looking forward to the next time we can come home and go back to the front and read the prompt to give us any to strengthen us again that we can face what we have to face and make Tao and the situation.
Especially in our situation here, it's very important that we never neglect
to the Quran, reading Quran, but most importantly reading it to get the gains from it. And if that means turning to the food to eat
this one question
most people understand Arabic translation
in combination with the theory English
would you recommend this book? Would you recommend one particular translation of different translations to different people?
To see it's really incomplete
that makes it the best by default.
conditions to me.
It's very difficult in our tuition here.
Because, you know, if,
if you look to what's available, for example, for our air brothers,
they have Mashallah many excellent
tissues available to them. And this is written even from different perspectives written from different time periods. And you get
so much from one versus the plant if you read different
and we don't have that unfortunate,
which I guess was 111 point that you drove, drove us to try to learn Arabic. And there's a very strong relationship between getting the teachings of the Quran and knowing the Arabic language, even among Arabs. The more that you know the Arabic language, the more you benefit from abroad.
For example, lesson Hana with data
after being laid a little low on
So in one portion or lesson enter with data uses form of cassava, and the other one.
And if you know the difference in you understand what Allah subhana wa Taala has seen this this, and this will help you appreciate the mercy of alisson hana without upon
effort, if you don't have
that strong of a background in the Arabic language, you might not notice you might not even know you should know.
But do not really noticed what is the difference between. And then if you don't know Arabic, or if you're not able to pick it up from the Arabic then you have to go to the English, what is available in English. And there's probably not too many books in English that will even tell you what the difference is that was mentioned here. And as mentioned, here. So this, this is really an impediment to getting the most of the most of it.
So I get this kind of advice. For those of us who don't, are not really fluent in Arabic,
whether or not we should try our best to
learn as much Arabic as we can, because inshallah that will help us more and more getting the benefit from
so that I'm kind of avoiding the question, as you can see.
Because, unfortunately, in English, we don't have much available we have, for example, Nigeria,
is the only complete theory you could say. And you know, it has some, there's some trends in it that perhaps are not that pleasing, but as a whole, as a whole is a decent work. I mean,
it will give you much of the teachings of the Quran says that it has some tendencies that are not necessarily good tendencies. And you might want to read it with other people of knowledge, you know that so that when
You know, some of these things might come up, you can skip over them and be clear about what is the correct position and points.
As for translation,
there are not many, you know, there are a few translations out there.
And of course, you know,
you know, the Quran is there because we all know that it is impossible to translate.
And if you've ever tried even to translate one verse, you realize how impossible it is to
translate the Quran because,
for example, even if you just take
there's actually two ways to read it. Vertical keytab. livelihood.
And it will you stop after fiso? When you translate it, now you're going to have to choose one of the ways to read it and translate it
in that way. So if you're just dealing a translation without, you know, commentary, which is what mostly what we have,
already, you've already chosen to ignore some of the meanings and then translated them in one way. So just Translation by itself.
It helps to get basic, basic understanding. And I mean, even beyond the basic understanding, I'm not, I'm not saying that, you know, you're not gonna understand the Quran. But if you really, you know, wants to get deep in the Quran, it can help you that much.
We have now the recent transition by funding a levy, which is the the goal, or their basics, the basis for the translation, of course, is very good. I just have some funds with sometimes the way they did it, I don't know they have a new have a new edition. And I understand that a new edition has come out. But in the in the edition that I have.
There's just too many parentheses.
You have the verse, and the verse has, like, if you were to translate it as like 10 words, good. So then they put like three or four sentences in parentheses to help you understand what some people get lost, they don't know what to put on what is there, what did the added tokens. And I even seen some cases where there's no end to the parentheses.
From here to the end, they've been added.
But I don't know if in the new in the newer edition is taking care of that or not. But otherwise, they're approaching what was their approach, we'll talk about the methodology, they were very careful in following the correct methodology and giving them translation. But as we said, It's impossible translation any attempt to translate is going to have
problems with it.
Now do the effort, Mashallah. The good effort, we need other things similar to others?
Would you take the person who says
that we need to know about?
Well, there's some knowledge which is for the aim, and some knowledge which is bad. And that changes from person to person. For example,
if you're someone like me, without much wealth, you don't really have to know about
but if you have wealth, you have to know about the rules of the game.
And even in my case, you should know enough to know that you don't have to know.
So, you have to In other words, you have to make sure that at least that level of knowledge, which is sort of an obligatory upon you, you know, you know, for example, the basics of data, you are free from committing shifts and so forth, you know, how to pray, you know, how to fast you know, the general teaching
and what is your responsibility to elicit talent. So, I mean, if you haven't gotten that, this is no excuse, you have to get that.
However, however, beyond that is knowledge in general knowledge
to some people who are doing it and taking care of it, and
they are passing it on to others and they are making sure that that other those aspects of the deen are not being violated and so forth.
Then they, that noise is not is not obligatory, other people forget. However, I don't think there's ever any case where someone is, you know, 100% this way
and 100% into gene and that's all the
He knows I don't think there is
even between worldly sciences or be between worldly knowledge. And between knowledge of the gene. That doesn't have to be this. I mean, people always seem to talk about this.
Look, I can either learn about computers or I can learn about genes, right? I mean, who says,
I mean, we all have limited capacities. That's true. But you are, you are saying that about yourself that, look, I can even learn about computers I can learn about. This isn't true. I don't know if you're familiar with Java, Chef Idris
is is a well known scholar.
He says about himself, he says, I am not a traditional chef.
Java chef, has a PhD in philosophy from the University of London.
So he says that, he says that what he did when he was studying philosophy, is that he made sure that every time he read a book about philosophy, he read a book about
Now, there are some people who go overboard in their studies, and
they have an A plus, they still want to get a little bit better. They have their own phones.
But otherwise, you know, when you study, you know, usually, for example, if you're in school, or if you're in work, you have an idea, when you have studied enough to know what you need to know, for that particular job or that particular class. And
so you take the rest of your time, and you can put it towards the end, it doesn't have to be this dichotomy that some people have in their mind.
So my answer to you is that you have to make sure that you know what is for the aim.
If you do not plan on becoming a specialist in the team, you maybe you're interested in something else, electrical engineering, so forth, that doesn't mean that Okay, now you're just gonna say electrical engineering, you take the time, as much time as
possible for you to learn about things.
I mean, many of the
many of our young, you know, very knowledgeable people, their background actually is not really being
While at the same time they might be getting degrees.
In reading books,
it depends on your on your situation.
For example, me personally,
I hate to give lectures, and I hate to listen.
I mean, I'll be frank, people give me a taste all the time, oh, this is a good lecture you have to listen to, I put on a tape. A minute later, all the books
are just finished the program can go back my book.
So some people are better adept at
ending meetings and listening to lecture. Some other people are better.
When it comes to books,
personally, I think books are better.
Because usually books are more in depth, and so forth. And you can really study and understand what they're saying, if you don't understand something, you go back over. Now, however, having a chef to guide you, this is something very important. But it's not something obligatory in the sense that you have a chef who, every day you go gamble once a week ago,
you should realize when you read something, you should realize whether you understand it or not. When you read a topic, I think most people want
to teach economics that gets to that.
But in general, you usually have a good idea whether you do something or not.
And even those who got so many of them, when they went to the exam, they knew they didn't understand anything they're going to get in.
So, you know, if you have some problem, you don't understand something clearly, you should always have access to people
that you can turn to and say, Please, I think I don't quite understand this. Explain this to me, or this is my understanding of it. Can you tell me if it's correct. So they are another resource important resource
to help you and to guide you. But just the blanket statement that we hear so often that
the people who learn from books don't want to learn from books.
There's a lot of human shifts now that are that are
that are not reliable. To be frank. If you just bring some
Yes, and we don't know who he is. And we don't know, you know what his teachings are reliable or not, I would prefer to go and read a book from someone that I know is reliable than listen to someone who

The question says, If you hadn't bugged me for the hanging upon it, can you advise us on this issue, as many brothers are confused?
this is much more knowledgeable about the situation there and so forth. And he
openly This is for the eighth. So what that means is that we should take partake in the jihad.
Preferably, we should partake in it with both our quality and our wealth if we can. If we cannot, then we should only support it with our role. And if we cannot do that, if we don't have work, we should at least supportive with our job and encourage other people to take part in that.

And he's here in town.

advice for young
studying this. And they want to give up.
Never give up.
Because two young brothers, comfortable, ready
to give up study
of service will need these things.
And if you if you enter Islam,
depending of course on which we're studying, you don't have to
you would give up. But in general, you know, most scientists, you can use them for the sake of Islam, especially if they are
any social sciences, they have a big problem. My background is in social sciences, you have to be very careful, I wouldn't recommend someone who just became Muslim, to continue in social sciences, or other things that they call sciences, which are not like psychology.
Because if you've ever studied these things, what they teach you, I mean, if you're a new Muslim, and you and you get taught that you
may be misled by them. I mean, you have the good intention, but you just don't have the knowledge to realize how dangerous and how wrong with this thing is. But if you're in the natural sciences, or things like that,
then I don't see any need to give them up to become Muslim. In fact,
once you become Muslim, what should happen now as your intention should change, to use those things that you're learning for the purpose of your life, and at the very least, the purpose of supporting yourself which is an obligation
and beyond that, you need to use that knowledge for the sake of
wishing to stop you from embracing
the decision to wait four weeks. And
while I speak to advice in that period, and then take Shahada with a she does an exorcism one advice would you get
He didn't make it
may mean that he will be in his apartment.
He don't have.
If he really believes in it,
he shouldn't, he shouldn't delay.
Now, there's some, you know, if you study, for example,
in Africa, you know, there's always different groups. And then there's always the question about, for example, someone who didn't see
what he does as a Muslim or not.
Was he actually be considered believable, even though he's in status, regardless of both of those things, if he has believed in it,
regardless of that debate, if he hasn't believed in the Shahada, then you should tell him that look, this means that you want to watch.
So every day now that you that you delay, you are disobeying Allah more and more yet even pray, even though you know, you should be praying, you didn't do this and that. So I think you should talk to him from that perspective, that look, either you don't understand the Shahada completely, or
you don't realize that, you know, waiting 40 days for your wife means disobeying Allah for 40 days, for the sake of us. Now he could become Muslim and, you know,
for the sake of his wife, me kind of conceal that
he will still pray and so forth, but he doesn't necessarily
right away, this would be better to talk about options.
Where did you get 30? days?
I mean, four weeks,
four weeks, where did he do?
Well, I mean, I just wouldn't recommend
it, you know, I couldn't recommend, I couldn't recommend for anyone to remain in corporate any longer than
from the very least, because
often the price
the bullet system is described the case of some Morales and movers, who had the name
and when he was asked, what should the what should the people do? Pray for us and then pray was over, most people understand that as meaning the laser sort of after the time.
So in that case, you pray by itself in the,
in the in this case that you're describing, you have, you have a situation where it says the Hubble preferred spray earlier?
Or is the biggest story or let's say more,
it's more almost to have to pray in demand.
Now, the father system, we have an example from him, and he said, with respect to service, the best time for service is to delay but for the sake of the congregation, he did not pray it in his best time and he prayed it when congregation was able to be able to, to to be there. So in other words, he was surprised a little bit earlier than what do you consider the best time So similarly, here, this is more important to pray in the congregation.
So you wait and you pretty
because delaying the prayer is not they are not committing a sin, they are just doing what is not preferable. And also it is based on opinion.
You know, you have to consider that this is their opinion.
There's no need
or, and especially there's no need to pray and not to go.
A third the hypocrites is the one who you know, he himself doesn't want to pray.
So it's not just a matter of time. He didn't want to I mean, didn't pray just two minutes before and don't remember a lot. They are praying the prayer inshallah they are remembering along the prayer.
They are just because

bring in the combination.
The importance of praying the congregation is very, very strong.
To the point that even some Sahaba they came late to the congregation, they will not join, they will not make the same congregation in the
same V, the congregational prayer in the mosque, the president
named after prayer is that
something that does not cut off?
What is not the hub, however, here you are doing what is not the hub, in order to do it,
you have a conflict between something which is something which is obviously, the thing which you

which is going to lead to people not coming to the prayer. Probably fighting now between the people but how come you don't come to the prayer and you're always calling us canopies or
whatever the situation might be here. There's no reason for that. There's no absolutely no reason for that.

when you have the choice to pray you should pay between. However, if for some reason, you're putting some delay there you make the delay, even if you made the delay and to put the other

So, basically we're talking about
you know, these things will give us the meaning of the arm.
It doesn't mean that these things give us everything that cron refers to and everything that has been described
as you said, you will not get a new meaning which contradicts
but there'll be a shade of meaning which might be stressed now might be more visible, more understand, but the meaning itself will not actually
you might get a meaning or understanding may be different from one of the domains.
Also, another point in the darkness she has
even with a sick to see it is not good.
What I mean by that is to take note of the teachings and the meanings of the Quran which are established.
And to understand how they apply in different circumstances,
this is a good rule

So he's discussing some obviously the

someone can say that, you know, the strict definition of proceedings is not the same.
Okay, so let's not worry about the strict definition. He's giving you the teaching of the law as it relates to what is happening now. And that is the purpose of the
So, you have to now come up with new meaning and say,
