00:00:01--> 00:00:12

Yeah what any command in the Quran and in the soul, any command, you name it, do this do not do this. We're meant to protect five things.

00:00:15--> 00:00:19

The scholars they call them the five necessities

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

without these five, no community

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

No,

00:00:28--> 00:00:31

no, no people, basically

00:00:32--> 00:01:01

they call them Mufasa to Sherry are the five holistic aims of the religion of Islam. So, any command in the Quran, whether it is watching, whether it is recommended, whether it is permissible, whether it is dislike, whether it is haram, or in this one, you name it, we're meant to serve to maintain these five objectives, five aims,

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

five themes,

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

number one has to do.

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

Number one objective is the protection of your D

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

y, y the inverse

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

let me ask you this simple question. Why did Allah create you and me?

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

Why? Why were we created?

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

So we were created for what?

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

For the team?

00:01:32--> 00:01:43

That means if we do not worship Allah that means we're not doing what Allah created us for. So number one objective number one goal is to protect your deen

00:01:44--> 00:01:55

you have to protect the religion of your religion and the religion of your children. Shuri al jihad in Jihad was legislated in Islam to protect your deen will help

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

you migrate from one place to another.

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

If you're staying in a community, where you are exposed to fitna and you cannot even exercise and practice your deen you're supposed to migrate.

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

You're supposed to go somewhere else where you can practice your deen.

00:02:15--> 00:02:20

If it is too much fitna for you, you cannot practice your deen guru Baba.

00:02:21--> 00:02:21

Guru

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

find the place where you can live your religion

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

not only your religion, the religion of your children to

00:02:33--> 00:02:46

suffer the lie yeah you're Latina man oh you believe poem for Sakuma de coonara protect yourself and your family from the Hellfire leave Natalia on how

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

to teach them the religion.

00:02:51--> 00:03:24

That's how you're gonna protect yourselves from the hill fire. Not only you, you and your children for the first objective and I don't want to talk much about because I'm after one, which is the one relevant to our subject the family and children. So briefly, the first one, the preservation the protection of your deen number two, the protection and the preservation of the knifes the human life.

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

HIV bonus

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

well evatik look

00:03:31--> 00:03:40

welcome. read this verse. Welcome Philippine saucy hyah Tonia Ollie Al Bab de la la quinta taco.

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

And Chris Voss not the sauces, you know, that doesn't mean

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

if someone kills this person is to be executed.

00:03:52--> 00:03:58

Alive staring you in that criminal punishment in Islam.

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

You have life.

00:04:02--> 00:04:12

Allah stealing your power. Because quite frankly, when the killer knows that the consequence of him killing another person is him to be executed. He's not going to do it.

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

He's gonna think twice.

00:04:16--> 00:04:33

If I know that punishment for me to kill to take the soul of another human being is me to be killed, executed and killing you. I will think twice before doing it. Welcome, Phil saucy. Hi, I'm Tanya, heaviness,

00:04:34--> 00:04:50

heaviness, the protection of the human soul. Everybody accused Islam of so many with terrorism and all but one law in Islam is one of a kind religion. Once it comes to the sanctity of the human life

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

of the human life. Imagine and we're talking about the human life, whether he is a Muslim or not.

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

Whether it is almost as long as the person is not combatant, you don't have any ground whatsoever to take his life

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

as long as he's not combatant in a declared war.

00:05:15--> 00:05:25

And we say this would open mouth because the text supporters are not shying away from this. So what was the first objective of the religion? The protection of

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

the number two?

00:05:28--> 00:05:38

What? Enough? Leave number three? Because this is our subject, number for the protection of the human intellect.

00:05:40--> 00:05:40

Luck.

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

Why? Because the human without intellect is what?

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

And you will find these five things are associated with a criminal punishment in Islam.

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

If a person drinks, and we have an Islamic law, what is the punishment?

00:06:02--> 00:06:11

flooding, right? That's the punishment, or he smokes weed or marijuana, one of these kids are turning off these slides.

00:06:18--> 00:06:28

So actually, you will find these objectives or aims are associated with a criminal punishment in Islam.

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

Look at the fifth one, I have little man the protection of the Will

00:06:35--> 00:06:44

you go and work throughout the week, and I come and I steal your money. Is that fair? Is that just that's why there is what?

00:06:45--> 00:06:51

A punishment for it? Why? Because this is the human.

00:06:52--> 00:06:56

The protection of the human rights in Islam, the rights of people in Islam.

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

The one that I skipped, which is related to our subject.

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

Is the scholars give it three means

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

even though it's one, but three meanings.

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

Number one, the protection of

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

Ines.

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

What is the nestling Arabi the production

00:07:24--> 00:07:24

of the human

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

race. It's called production right?

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

The production

00:07:33--> 00:07:33

and

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

the continuation of the humankind

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

have witnessed.

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

This is why

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

in symbol where

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

homosexuality is unlawful.

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

Why? Because it doesn't serve that goal.

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

Imagine if all mankind would go into that? Well, I had to rely on who seek refuge with Allah that doesn't go this way. If all of them would go into that path, one, they call it one gender or something.

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

What will happen to the human race?

00:08:22--> 00:08:31

So the production the the re production have been have been says number one. That's important.

00:08:33--> 00:09:13

And it had been it has been almost like this year. Listen, we understand that we live in a country where, you know the Constitution guarantees the sexual preference of liberty freedom. But as a Muslim, you don't have to condone this. Listen, I can force you to follow my sexual preference. I am not going to do it as a Muslim. Nor I will force you I understand this. But I'm sorry, this is against the divine concept and I don't agree with it. You go your way if this is the path that you choose to take, that is your business. But as a Muslim, I'm not going to to show tolerance. I'm not going to say that's okay. No, it's not okay. According to Islam.

00:09:14--> 00:09:23

So, this is the first one, have a look at that number to the protection of the lineage heff danessa.

00:09:27--> 00:09:31

This is why adultery is a move

00:09:32--> 00:09:38

in Islam. Why? Because what what does adultery do? It mixes what

00:09:40--> 00:09:48

I read the F word. Over a million children born in the United States of America, they don't know the fathers.

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

They don't

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

and actually you're supposed to protect the progeny to

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

with the necessity

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

As the progeny how these children who are born into this world, they are entitled to be born to a father and a mother.

00:10:10--> 00:10:14

That's their right. Not to a girlfriend and a boyfriend.

00:10:16--> 00:10:34

You see what Islam is? I brothers, I'm telling you sometimes understanding this is very important, especially we live in this era, where people throw stuff at you, Oh, you guys, you flood people for having sex with other J. You guys stood by you need to understand that there is a wisdom behind it.

00:10:36--> 00:10:43

This is what is called set the very odd that you're blocking the basically the way to a greater evil.

00:10:44--> 00:10:50

There is a greater evil if you let this happen. What is going on this will lead to this. You're having children who do not know their parents.

00:10:52--> 00:10:59

Is that Is that how it should be? I should come to this world as a child, say father and mother living together

00:11:00--> 00:11:11

in a family committed to the relationship, not people who found themselves together for a drink and they ended up with a baby that doesn't go this way.

00:11:12--> 00:11:26

The protection of the progeny. Here is another important piece, which is the protection of the honor. Again, these are all names 411, which is number three. That's where the family and the children are.

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

family and children. The protection of the honor what does it mean?

00:11:33--> 00:11:33

Yeah, if

00:11:35--> 00:11:38

adultery has been all was a shun sin.

00:11:40--> 00:11:50

I tell you in the United States of America, 100 years ago, I tell you this and some of you may relate to this relationship between a man and a woman out of wedlock was Rachel

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

read, go back and read

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

spinall was like this.

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

And we read Hadith

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

abou Mama, Alonzo Muslim, Alabama, that a young man

00:12:08--> 00:12:20

abroad the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said the rasulillah or messenger of Allah, then leave his dinner. Imagine this. He's asking the prophets of Salaam to give him a permission to commit adultery.

00:12:22--> 00:12:27

Of course, the Sahaba the companions rebuked him for such a request.

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, Oh, no, come close.

00:12:33--> 00:12:40

And he asked him the series of questions. Number one, look at this at all of our hair that you make.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

Would you like someone to do this to your mother?

00:12:45--> 00:13:00

said no. He said, Well, unless also people do not like this. I mean, at the end of the day, if a person commits adultery or committing adultery with a wife, a mother, a daughter of another human being

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

that's injustice, you're committing injustice.

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

And Islam doesn't promote that.

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

The only way for you to have a relationship with the other gender is that the clear then and so forth, for shared effort.

00:13:22--> 00:13:52

When we talk about family and and we talk about children, listen, we're talking about the protection of the human race. We're talking about the protection of the honor of the individuals. We're talking about the protection of the lineage, that you know who you are, who's your father, and so forth. these are these are holistic aims in Islam

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

for this purpose, or this objective,

00:13:59--> 00:14:03

you find out that Islam invited us to get married.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

Sharif, Rasul. Salallahu alaihe salam is addressing the issue.

00:14:11--> 00:14:17

Yeah, Mashallah. Oh, you youth minister for amin Kumar, at affiliate so

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

if you're able to get married, you better go and get married

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

for a Lamia, Stata.

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

If you're not able to,

00:14:28--> 00:14:57

then fasting would help. Not cold showers like they tell you in the movies. fasting. That's the only way that can take down that sexual drive if you have an issue with it. But really the only way to protect your chastity as a woman or as a man, if you're able to get married, but again when we say this is what we have to always be careful. The person has to be financially ready

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

has to be

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

mentally ready in my opinion, that's actually one of the most important. You have to be mentally ready to handle another person,

00:15:10--> 00:15:15

you know your wife, your spouse, you have to be able to do this.

00:15:16--> 00:15:33

And of course, the physical readiness you have to be physically ready to do this. So when when we say that we have to take this into consideration, as well. Islam spoke again a celibacy

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

aveni

00:15:36--> 00:15:45

the Sahih Muslim Hadith anicet in America of the Alon, three individuals came to the house of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

and they asked about the manner of his worship.

00:15:50--> 00:15:54

How much does the prophets of Salaam devote himself in a valley?

00:15:55--> 00:16:01

Imagine these three individuals. They assume that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not doing enough.

00:16:02--> 00:16:07

And this is in itself is a big offense.

00:16:08--> 00:16:29

But when they came up with such a hyena statement, they they want to justify it and they said what? But you know why the prophet SAW Selim is not doing enough because Allah has forgiven his past and his future sins. This is even worse. You know, it's like when you dig a hole, and you try to come out and what you do is you dig deeper

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

in it every one of them says what?

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

I will break the hedge with every single night meaning every night I will not sleep I'll I'll pray.

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

The other one said Well, I will fast every single day nonstop.

00:16:47--> 00:16:55

Every single day non stop. The third one said and this is the point of reference mobile Shay. He said what? I will not marry women.

00:16:58--> 00:17:22

Women means children. Women means this is going to take me away from Allah. No, I'd rather devote myself to Allah. No family, I'm not gonna start a family. Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by the way, in response, in response to the statements of the three he got on the bobet. And he said, I have heard what these three individuals have said

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

by Allah, and the most knowledgeable

00:17:29--> 00:17:34

of few of what lies the ANA level khubilai lies.

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

If there is someone who knows about Allah is me.

00:17:39--> 00:17:48

And I'm the most fearful of Allah. What I said to him the Hashi. But look, I pray at night, and I sleep at night.

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

I have an eye breakfast, and I marry him.

00:17:54--> 00:17:59

And this is my son. This is my Dean. What is castle neti

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

neti Falaise? Me?

00:18:02--> 00:18:13

Again I'm giving you the legislation in Islam which encourages what the protection of these three, the protections of the reproduction and

00:18:14--> 00:18:21

the protection of the lineage, the protection of the honor and the dignity of another person.

00:18:22--> 00:18:30

So we said inviting people to get married if they are able to warning them against celibacy or robinia like

00:18:32--> 00:18:41

NASA NASA came up with it. Danny attempted our It was not really part of the teachings of Prophet Isa to them, but they came up with it.

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

Islam stands firm against abortion

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

and killing the children.

00:18:50--> 00:19:09

Look, those verses will add up to Lula da Cunha Shia in LA while added to our ladder cummin m lab. Do not kill your children for fear of poverty Do not kill your children because you're afraid that they're going to take away from your

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

resources.

00:19:12--> 00:19:26

Imagine a for my son brothers, they would ask the wives to go and get abortion because he thinks that he cannot handle the responsibility. I'm gonna buy insurance and I'm gonna that's exactly the so the sister goes and gets a portion.

00:19:29--> 00:19:39

All the other side the sister doesn't want to get multiple pregnancies because she's afraid she's gonna lose her finger. Or, you know

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

she's afraid of this.

00:19:43--> 00:19:53

So, again, yeah, what Islam stands for abortion is as unlawful in Islam. Certainly.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Abortion is only permissible in Islam. If there is imminent

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

and present danger on the health of the mother.

00:20:04--> 00:20:20

That's the only time the doctor tells you that keeping that baby, not assuming, but the doctor tells you that keeping that baby will damage the health of the mother. Consequently, you may go ahead and do this

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

the concept of adoption yet

00:20:26--> 00:20:43

again, remember we said what one of the aims is the protection of the lineage, adoption in Islam the way that non Muslims do it is not permissible in Islam, that you go and take a baby a child and give him your last name, he cannot do this.

00:20:45--> 00:21:04

And as a matter of fact, Allah Subhana Allah use the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his story was zeynab and zayde. Just to draw the line, because I want to tell you something. What the non Muslims are doing now was identical to what they were doing in Jay Hillier right before Islam,

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

that you go and take another child and you call it give him your last name.

00:21:12--> 00:21:14

And you know the story of zaytoven the hydrosol of the lawn

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

that somehow they was taken from his father.

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

And he was brought to Makkah

00:21:24--> 00:21:30

and then purchase dimple takimoto exam, relative Khadija, then he was given to the Prophet finally,

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

for he used to serve the profits or loss and

00:21:36--> 00:21:42

he loved the profits or loss of them so much. Imagine this his father, his father,

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

found out what his son is hiding.

00:21:48--> 00:21:52

He was actually told that your son is in Mecca with a man called Muhammad.

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

So he came to Makkah and he asked the prophet SAW solemn Listen, I'll give you back whatever money you need, but I want my son back.

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

So the brothers are sometimes said to him, I have a better choice for you.

00:22:07--> 00:22:17

will ask him if you want to go back with you. I will give him back for free. I will not charge you a thing he can go he will be freed.

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

So he was brought. So his own father physical father

00:22:25--> 00:22:32

asked him to come back go home with him. He said no ally I will not to leave this man for the world.

00:22:33--> 00:22:38

I have lived with him for years and I love being around him. No.

00:22:39--> 00:22:48

Look at this now. Rasul Allah send them as a reward for Zane he says what from now on your name is zeytinburnu Mohammed.

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

Allah did not agree to that.

00:22:54--> 00:22:54

No.

00:22:58--> 00:23:07

Him who are our software in the law for lm Talamo ABA home 31 D new Mr. Lee.

00:23:08--> 00:23:27

No, call them after their parents lineage. Because remember, one of the aims is the protection of the lineage you can have any adoption in such a manner with what mess up mess up the lineage Sharia. So Islam

00:23:28--> 00:23:28

Listen,

00:23:30--> 00:23:44

don't misunderstand me here. I'm not talking against taking care of orphans and all of that that also Salaam set up an hour carefully ottimi I am and the one who take care of orphans will be like this engine

00:23:45--> 00:23:56

legacy. You can give them your name. They have to keep their names. And once they reach a certain age, they cannot be exposed to your Muharram

00:23:57--> 00:24:11

Kenny, if the boy is little he can maybe mix with your family but once he reaches a certain age, he reaches his manhood the age of puberty we say then it's time to separate because he can marry your daughter.

Thickness technically, he's not a Muslim to your wife, technically. So Islam in Canada is taking care of people who are Jani not having a family. But with certain guidelines. That's the point I'm trying to make. Islam stood firm against adultery.

00:24:33--> 00:24:34

Adultery

00:24:36--> 00:24:49

there is a punishment in adultery. That is why because it violates the honor of another human being. It could lead to the production or rebuild

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

the production of children out of wedlock.

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

There is a lot of damage there

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

and of course slandering and

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

and so forth. Therefore, Islam also promoted the institution of marriage and set guidelines for it, how to get married and all of this inshallah
