Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Alhamdulillah. How are you doing? Who is this?

00:00:19--> 00:00:20

I'm calling from

00:00:22--> 00:00:34

Sr. Saba from Utah. Mashallah Salt Lake City. Go ahead. You actually can see, yes, I visited you so many times. Mashallah enjoy the community there, jack. Hello, hello.

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

Go ahead.

00:00:38--> 00:01:17

Yeah, if I have a quick question on, you know, former times people basically invited you to weddings and stuff like that. But then sometimes they'd have it weddings like boys and girls. Mix it. Yeah, like I heard it's not okay for you to attend a wedding. They're doing something wrong. Okay. So you're asking, you're asking what is the ruling on receiving invitation to a wedding party where there are violations? Should I go or not? Yeah. Okay. I will be more than happy to answer that for you, sister. Saba Callahan for calling.

00:01:19--> 00:01:50

We do have sister Saba from Salt Lake City desert. Hello, hi, Tara. And I always enjoy visiting Salt Lake City. Mashallah. She had a question. The question was winning, Muslims winning. And fortunately, we're mimicking the non Muslims and everything where you can end up with music, what you end up with, with mixing and so forth. She's asking basically, should I go or not? You should not go to these functions at all.

00:01:52--> 00:02:00

Brothers and sisters in Islam? I think her question is the ruling on mixing between the two genders.

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

A lot of the things like lowering the gaze

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

that makes mixing between the genders.

00:02:12--> 00:02:29

Facebook and the interaction in general, we must strive to lessen this at all. Not because it's Haram in itself. No, because it leads to a greater evil

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

in something that is something in our religion is called set the Varia

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

sagittaria what what do you mean by setting

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

an act which lead to a greater evil. This act by itself can be lawful.

00:02:52--> 00:02:58

But I avoid it because it will block the way to a greater evil.

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

Looking at the opposite gender

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

it's haram right

00:03:07--> 00:03:26

elmyra shorba Allah Juan came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on Hadith vision and NSA. And he said O Messenger of Allah. I propose to our women from an answer. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him Did you look at her? He's not married to her he just did a marriage proposal

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

for you he said no, go and look at her.

00:03:32--> 00:03:32


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

even to look at is haram but it's okay in that particular situation. Why? Because it will lead to Maslow's Hierarchy there is a greater goodness will come out of it. But if he is not marrying this woman that also Salah would let him know that don't look at her. Why? Because it will lead to a greater evil you may end up entertaining the idea that you want to have an illegal relationship with this woman.

00:04:05--> 00:04:27

So we must strive to abide by such commands, things which can lead us to a greater evil to a greater problem. We should avoid it. Certainly. I would not advise you SR Saba to

00:04:29--> 00:04:37

answer positively these invitations, rather if you can avoid them peacefully would be much better be dinner. Hey, Todd.
