00:05:41--> 00:05:49

this light something that you should stay away because we're going to find out that the next ruling is what

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

haraam it's very close to her

00:05:53--> 00:05:59

something that is disliked, like you go near the heroine, what is next a

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

harem what is haram?

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

If you do it, you are sinful and you get punished for it.

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

This is

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

so, this is a top what is also

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

what is

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

the science

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

or the rules

00:06:25--> 00:06:31

or the mechanics or the techniques of deducing these rulings from the text.

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

Based on what did you say Salah is word.

00:06:38--> 00:06:57

So, there are certain like for example, they say what also will fit one of the rules like a moon mukluk yaka if there is a command out there It must be taken as mandatory like what are t masala establish what

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

the Salah that means it's not that must be what

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

must have

00:07:04--> 00:07:19

unless there is something that takes it from most perhaps from worship mandatory to work to recommend it like for example, the ideal thing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said will solve new problems number

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

one What does it mean to

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

pray before

00:07:26--> 00:07:39

tsunami former pre tsunami formatting imagine this solid low level memory what a solid means is in that a commanding statement shaloo that means you're praying before mother

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

so what is the ruling on this now?

00:07:43--> 00:08:01

Come on just go with me. I know I know that you know that. But go with me what is downloading according to this particular piece of the Hadith daddy does not complete yet. What he actually said that again, Salo cabal Maverick pray before Madrid, again, shall know couple of Madrid three times.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

And then at the end, he said what Limon share,

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

if you want.

00:08:09--> 00:08:14

So he took it, you see that? That last piece? He took it from what you have to work

00:08:15--> 00:08:35

to recommend. It's up to you, you're getting so the rules of that. So, how do you deal with the text to be able to say this is why this is Mr. hub, this is haram This is macro, there are certain signs of reading through the text to figure out

00:08:36--> 00:08:45

what did he mean by that? So this is the second science which is what what is the second such science or soon and this subject by the way for

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

only people who are here on the

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

into the religion too much they study it

00:08:54--> 00:08:58

because when you read it it's it's it's it's a little bit complicated,

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

but the scholars to help you know

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

us because that subject is extremely important

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

or fulfilled. They produce a substitute

00:09:16--> 00:09:27

something that you know, because not a lot of people are able to read the Hadith and figure out what did he mean by that? Is it worth the visit not many people accept what

00:09:28--> 00:09:38

he had the people who can do jihad, the people who are into the science, the people who studied Islam thoroughly in Azar in El Medina in

00:09:39--> 00:09:56

so they produce something called El power I don't fit here what does it mean a card statement, statements, statements, certain statements, under which come endless cases of

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

English

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

Cases of

00:10:03--> 00:10:04

normally the scholars they

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

came up with five of them

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

and imagine under those five

00:10:12--> 00:10:16

all the falls under, shall I share them with you?

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

Five because these are the five which will study inshallah.

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

What is number one

00:10:24--> 00:10:28

ltft rula zu l Alia P.

00:10:32--> 00:10:37

Searching t cannot be overruled by doubt.

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

That's, that's what

00:10:42--> 00:10:45

I definitely that's what we call this Maxim

00:10:47--> 00:10:52

under this I can mention so many cases, you're in the salon,

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

you're playing by yourself, you're being a chef.

00:10:56--> 00:11:01

And you're mixed up, was it the third truck? Or the fourth? Raka?

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

Can we apply this rule?

00:11:05--> 00:11:11

Can we? Yes, we can have What are you searching about three or four?

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

You're doubtful about what? Four but you're certain about what? Three so then build on that.

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

A lot of people they keep with the with the shaper? Oh, I think it's three. I think it's four things three.

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

Okay, I'm certain about three philosophies three.

00:11:31--> 00:11:34

Because I cannot remove the certainty with what

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

with the four I can I can do.

00:11:39--> 00:11:48

And just to show you that all these things in the film, assure that sometimes you will end the salah and your stomach makes a sound.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

You hear a sound.

00:11:54--> 00:12:08

Now, someone actually asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about this, he said the Rasul Allah and confer Salam nesma. So is he do not leave until you smell something or you hear it coming from the

00:12:10--> 00:12:10

don't

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

don't entertain that out because you're certain now that you're in a state of flow, but that's the first rule and inshallah we're gonna come back to this meeting later. Number two, a follow

00:12:23--> 00:12:23

up.

00:12:26--> 00:12:32

Rule number two, you have to memorize those five and Sharma because under them there are a lot of sub

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

user What does it mean a direct user harm has to be lifted. If there is a harm it has to be

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

taken care of.

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

You can set on horn

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

you can it has to be one of Dada loser

00:12:54--> 00:12:59

number three, Al Masha cottage Lee bootay sees

00:13:00--> 00:13:03

a hardship begets ease

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

when you are in hardship, the Sharia makes it work.

00:13:09--> 00:13:16

Grant you if you're traveling, it's very hard to keep up with the Salah.

00:13:18--> 00:13:28

I said what to and if you cannot pray on time, then you can pretty much rubbish at work together at the time. So l Masha tattaglia with a CS

00:13:29--> 00:13:38

l masaka. a deadly booty? You're dying in the deserts and the only thing that can keep you alive is eating pork.

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

There is nothing else

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

should I eat it? Yeah.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

A little bit that make you survive because it's a

00:13:49--> 00:13:57

hardship invites what ease but again, we have to be careful with that particular rule in particular because a lot of people make up what

00:13:58--> 00:14:04

make up these hardships. Number four, Allah Dotto hakima

00:14:06--> 00:14:25

the custom and the habits of the people sometimes is the basis for a religious ruling because people use to it as long as it's not in the area of what have rituals. So this is number four. Number five, here is a movie na casa de

00:14:26--> 00:14:31

all matters all things that you do are based on your intention.

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

What is your intention? And Omu Bhima Cassidy

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

so who can repeat those again?

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

of Dora know Ali akinola Zulu, Bishop wabarakatuhu user data, three, harm has to be lifted or removed number three

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

hardship begets ease. Number four.

00:15:05--> 00:15:21

No, no. Custom is the basis of a religious ruling number six. Custom custom is the basis of religious law rule 11 a sister comes to you and tells you she this month my period ended up to be 15 days.

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

I had a period for 15 days. What is the question that you asked her?

00:15:29--> 00:15:38

You see that? Is it how these things come handy? Come How long is your regular period sister? Because you're using that for how long? It's seven days. philos goes seven days.

00:15:40--> 00:15:44

Because custom, the habit the regular regular thing that comes up

00:15:45--> 00:15:52

becomes the basis for our religious holy sometimes like this area. Number five fo

00:15:53--> 00:16:02

li li l e l l o Morro Bay mikaze. Now well, while most of these most of these are coming from Quran and Sunnah

00:16:04--> 00:16:39

like you know all of this is coming from we mentioned that there is a hadith about you know about the Akilah Zulu shock double Masha Allah He is Masha Allah Allah eco demon hora nama or suitable honey fee of dodoria zu Hor must be eliminated or lifted. What What is the La la la, la, la la la, la la, la la la, la la de La da da da mo hakama custom is the basic the issue of the period look at an

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

enamel.

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

Binya so they are all coming from what from a hadith

00:16:48--> 00:16:56

there is one scholar who came up with one one fifth rules he's one fifth Maxim

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

Louis Malays ignore Abu Salah.

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

You know what he said, Jamie? Ui, one,

00:17:08--> 00:17:12

Yahoo do Isla saben masala, one method.

00:17:14--> 00:17:19

All the methods in the Sharia has to do with assessing the benefits and the heart.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

And this

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

brings a subject and I'm going to keep you because tomorrow's election which we've been asked over and over again about this subject.

00:17:35--> 00:17:43

One of the sisters just sent me a text message shape, I just voted. And I found out that I voted for

00:17:45--> 00:17:48

same sex guy. I don't know, gay guy,

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

you know, the subject of voting?

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

Because there is a lot of talk about it, you know, and

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

and that's the rule, which

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

is using

00:18:07--> 00:18:09

assessing the benefits and the harm

00:18:11--> 00:18:19

is what govern the subject. And this is why there is no white or black, black or white.

00:18:20--> 00:18:28

I can say yes, because there are people out there who go out there and say, all we got they have obsession with voting with the process session,

00:18:29--> 00:18:34

if you like the whole process is revealed by lots of panels.

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

And they label those who don't contribute to

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

under or in the other side, people who stand completely against the process. And those are two extremes.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

Because the matter has to do with what

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

assessing the benefits and the harm.

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

And that should be your intention.

00:19:00--> 00:19:07

You don't want to go for that. Listen, we're living in a non Muslim country. We're not choosing a needle moment in here. Okay.

00:19:08--> 00:19:14

We're not choosing people who are gonna rule according to the book of Allah. Okay, we're not doing that.

00:19:15--> 00:19:39

These people rule according to man made loose, but the matter has to do with what will this bring benefit to you as a Muslim and to you as a community, this will protect your rights, this will keep eliminates, you know, islamophobes away so that then it's permissible to contribute in the process.

00:19:41--> 00:19:57

But there is no such thing you can just come and say, vote. No, you can do that. Because this differ according to the county, the individual, the country, the place, the circumstances of the whole thing

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

that you have

00:20:00--> 00:20:52

To look thoroughly into this, you can just go blindly because, you know, voting is a religious right? No, it is not a religion is not an obligation religiously, it is not. It is not. It is a matter of assessing the benefits and the harm. And I'm going to just share with you what the council in the Muslim world League, that's the highest body of jewels in the Muslim world they meet every year, and they discuss these things. This is I'm just going to share with you what they said. years back, not because the matter was brought to them. And the you know, they got chemo. They got individuals who are coming to them from non Muslim places like us, and explaining to them the

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

process. Here's what they said.

00:20:55--> 00:21:12

Her the hill, Miss ella mingma, say in St. Helens, this subject is a subject of which they had what he had. You have to work in blowy. That rule of assessing the benefits and the heart that's what they mean by it. What up

00:21:13--> 00:21:24

Xena diagonal Masada one minute, one up draw, and it is subject to the result of placing the benefits and the harm in the scale.

00:21:26--> 00:21:42

For in capital manner through extra. If the benefits are more jazz Akhil moussaka, then it's permissible to contribute not obligatory, not mandatory, not you have to know it's permissible. Go ahead.

00:21:44--> 00:22:21

We're in Canada methods you'd work for top What if the harm is more, you're gonna bring no benefit, actually, you're gonna bring harm, this guy is promoting the same sector is promoting, you know, as you know, all type of harm and he's not helping the Muslims at all. lentigines in mushara, it is not permissible for you to do while hookman You must Allah and the verdict and the ruling on this subject. Yes, telephone will differ. Beef dealers in makeni. One unlimited well as costs. In one country, in one city, it can differ from one county to another,

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

one place to another in one country, one place to another, where usually Muslim, if he sees that there is a Muslim, that he should contribute.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

That's the ruling.

00:22:36--> 00:23:19

But contribute with the intention that you want to achieve what some benefits for the Muslims. Not your intention should not should not be I'm obsessed. I love this. Man. I love democracy, democracy, I believe in democracy. So I believe in this well, law of this system is sound, it would not have promoted, produced Donald Trump as the President of the United States. If this system is sound. And I know I live in a country, I can say that. If the system is sound, Donald Trump is the president of the strongest power in the whole world, if the system is sound, but it uses sound people to be the head of a country like this, listen,

00:23:20--> 00:24:07

politicians are punch of liars, all of them. And they are totally different after they win the election. And we know this, we know this. It's all about protecting our rights as a minority group living in America, if there is someone out there who's promoting protection of the rights, also, letting people know that we have a voice. That's one of the benefits to one of the benefits of the method that you let people know that well. We are a community we have number of people, especially in escape, you know, maybe your votes will not matter in a presidential election, but it will matter way when they count 124 this guy got 120 votes and this guy got 180 votes assessor, for example, or

00:24:07--> 00:24:13

a county whatever or Yeah, your vote may count. So we should be more active in that local work.
