And welcome again to another episode of your weekly live Islamic chat show a time to please Allah. And I've been obviously away for a couple of weeks. So
it's good to be back. So I know you've been discussing over the last couple of weeks about the hijab. I tried to
attend attempted to watch the episodes, but I think I managed to watch like 20 minutes. One of whoever watched at least one episode full of the job one
of ours know many
people like it's not like I said that I watch. I can't watch more than like 10 minutes. So just to see if there's any issue. Yeah, I can't stand kind of listening to myself. I don't I think most people have that issue. But yeah, we're talking about the hijab. And it's very, I think it kind of got stretched over a few episodes we haven't brought them haven't been and rather agile with us, and we had some good discussions and nice, interesting phone calls. Actually, it was quite good to hear the opinion of the sisters and we encourage actually the sisters to, uh, to call on the brothers, everyone to call you can see the number on the screen. And we are live today from Dubai. And today
is also the Opening Day ceremony for the
for the peace conference. That's right here in Dubai. And the bridge is now part of the world it was last year as well. But it's obviously been incorporated now with the Sheikh Mohammed Dubai World Peace Award.
The Dubai World Peace Award. Even if you were to go to the search for the peace conference website, it comes up as the DWP a the Dubai World Peace Award. So it's all part of the government of Dubai. So I've heard that it's quite
quite an improvement this year. So inshallah we're gonna pass by on the way back from here and
there tomorrow. Yeah, I'll be there tomorrow with yourself I believe, as one of the Dow counselors that there is exhibition, answering people's questions about Islam and stuff like that. So for any of the viewers, when I come down and say Salaam will be cool, like to come down and like give some advice, or some, you know, maybe you see something that we don't see that, you know, you're kind of shy to tell us over the phone or something like that. And you want to advise us or you want to tell us anything to change or you know, which direction to take the show. Again, this this show is is really in dealing with with things that you have issues that you have that you want to discuss. So
we're always willing to to listen and
so the job maybe you can show me in a bit about well, what you've covered Yeah, so then I can remember you're just joining us today by the way that a lot of people might not know but that our program change now two episodes have been aired from at 9am 8pm to 9pm and Dubai time your time and seven to eight Mecca time. So make sure you mark your scheduled but yeah, we talked about the job in the first episode, we can discuss the rulings and the proofs around the hijab, why the hijab is fourth. And we also refuted some of the misconceptions that people have money job
then in the second episode kind of move towards the social issues revolving the hijab and the the
outside difficulties that specifically sisters face when it comes to, to wearing the hijab to adhering to the hijab, what are the do's don'ts, and you know what gets them closer to wearing Hijab and what pushes them away from the hijab, and we had quite some emotional phone calls and some different you know, and it was it was nice to get a balanced view with different you know, points of views and, and to hear about these these these difficulties, a lot of sisters, some sisters, you know, saying that, you know, I just started wearing hijab, like, you know, a month ago and I feel so empowered, I feel so you know, so strong and some sisters saying that, you know what, I want to earn
a job. I'm not there yet. I don't think people should judge me, or you know, so I mean, it was interesting to hear and so on, you know, the different the different views and
And we'll discuss all these things. And then we said we wanted to move today a little bit more towards
supporting our sisters and, you know, giving them that, that the blessings and the the the glad tidings of, you know, what are the benefits of being a Muslim woman and being proud of, you know, being that and we talked about past episode about, you know, the word of that right, by the listener mockery Paseo de facto value? And how important is it to be a strange, right, because a lot of times, you know, if you're wearing that, confirming to the Islamic dress code, people will be like, you know, kind of like, especially in different parts of the world, people looking kinda like this person is very strange, right? So we said that you should actually take some kind of power from
that, you know, and it should motivate you to, to grab, grab the glad tidings from the bussola cellar. So I guess today we'll have
a guest that we will talk about
getting pregnant. So Dan, he will come after the break, he will.
I don't want to go too much, because obviously, he introduced himself, but he conducts specifically, not only in India, but he's completely even in Dubai. But I think the focus he's conducted on, you know, as being living in India, he's done several places in India, called heroes of Islam, where he focuses on who are the real heroes that we should be looking at. So he's, you know, he focuses on the youth etc. And he has obviously, some as well, which are the female heroes or heroines of light from the, from the Sahaba, from the companions of the female companions. So he'll be coming in and giving us you know, a few examples of these women all kinds of women, they were, because we know,
there's always issues with a with the whole role models. And we touched upon that in our previous episodes, we talked about that, that women do like the role model, and even the role models that they see that they might sport, some kind of type of hijab, convertible type of hijab, or whatever, you know, there. That's not the real representation of the hijab, right? So a lot of time I followed that. And now we have people, you know, making happy videos of sexuality. I mean, I mean, that's just, that's just mind boggling, really, I was thinking about, I'll say to myself, and I think other some other days, I would have said the same thing. But I will say to myself, I mean, to be honest, I
didn't go onto Facebook. And, as of yet, and mentioned, think about it, because I saw so many other people have done it for so I thought,
you know, but I mean, just the fact, you know, I mean, I don't want anybody to go watch it, of course. But I mean, I'm sure many people have already seen this video. And the sad thing about it is there was
there are so called people who claim to be callers to Islam, they're not callers to the correct Islam. But I was very surprised to see an individual who,
in their version of Islam is considered to be like, a scholar. And he's like the head of Islamic Studies in Cambridge University, you know, the funny thing is that one of them actually distanced himself from from that event in there finally came out in their case, I mean, even if, even if, I mean, I don't know, anybody could really justify it photo wise, but even if somebody follows the weak fatawa, that music is allowed, as we mentioned before, it's very, very weak. That's the kind of music they're talking about maybe in the title of the progress I said, where they would play a very basic guitar, or a flute, something fairly simple, not the shape of this shape that and what that
does, the worst thing is that the shaking
apart from the fact it is clear, and music of an individual who is famous for singing in the most crude songs with Snoop Dogg and all kinds of stuff.
I mean, I remember many years ago, you know, very x rated kind of songs and videos. I mean, the fact he's singing is one thing, but then the music itself completely wrong. And then you have the sisters unfortunately, even Hey, john, is that well, some version of his yo Dawson around and shaking everything around? I mean, literally, like any women in a video and what is sad is they fail to kind of realize that, you know, you're just you tossing around your body, cloning, just like anybody, even from the I mean, from the from the Masada thing, you see the sister jumping around most of the morning, you know, not necessarily the correct Islamic clothing anyway, so it was very sad to see
that and all of that I think was even sadder because maybe someone is generally don't really realize they don't they think that their hijab, so we're not like judging people in that sense, but it was, what was more surprising and more upsetting was, I happen to tune in to a channel and Islamic channel that comes from the UK, which again, has its own problems, but and they were actually talking about that and they had, they were, I just told him I was flicking through my because I have a satellite. I have Islamic tunnels. I have saved favorites. I was flicking through them.
And I really really watched this channel but now and again, they might have a documentary or something of interest and having to be like a
It's like this kind of thing. It's like, it's a talk show in the evening or.
And they're surprised as I was doing that, because I'd seen these two hosts in the video, which is already a bit like, Oh, come on, guys.
So the hosts are in the video host or the video anyway, what else is doing? You know, because I'm happy and all that kind of stuff and support a lot.
So I will say to myself, Oh, yeah, that reminds me, I just saw those guys in a clip that someone put on Facebook. And when I
saw I stayed on for a few seconds, and they said, Oh, yeah, they're happy. They're literally talking about the video there must have generated some criticism. And they have a couple of people who were also there dancing around. And they said, you know, what kind of comments have you got? And it would be? I mean, it would be bad enough if they just said, Oh, we got negative comments. That's a shame. Oh, really? Oh, but a bit of fun. That's bad enough. But what they were saying is that you could get those guys coming along, you know, making those negative comments and say, Hey, what do you get? This is not perfect. This is not befitting guys. This is not permissible as it's like, it's as if
it's a joke, or someone is doing that. He's a Looney Tunes. He's an extremist. He's, he's a, he's a over the top guy, you know, he's not, he's not a middle path, extremists or something. Right? So and then one of the guy was like, Oh, yeah, you know, you know, 556 of the people were like, great. I'd had one or two people were like, who total. And even though he was saying it was like, that was I think that was more upsetting to him saying that than the actual video itself. But that's, that's the issue with with red herrings. Right. And when you're talking about discussions, such as, you know, what's allowed, and what's not allowed, is that people can just say that, Oh, no, oh, these
people are saying that it's, it's Haram. So by, you know, just by stating that you're dismissing, and causing them to be in you know, like, this extreme side, saying that we, you know, saying to something, that it's wrong, it's something bad or it's something, you know, wrong. And that's, that's, that's the interesting that a lot of people get caught into this that, you know, the people were calling too good. You know, they're, they're, they're marginalized. And I'm there and these are people are very, very bad. They're always everything's hot under the hot on police, right even have these these labels and terms now that they, they come up with, you know, these people that are on
police, but the thing is, that if we refer any photo boy, if you if you want to take it back to a lawyer solely into the last matter, and His Messenger, you there's no place for this man. I mean, not not for what they're doing. Okay, not for what they're doing. There's no place for women in the hijab, I mean, that they're wearing, we're talking about hijab, to shake into to dance like that. And to, and at the same time, how do you they came to me, to my mind, and that I posted actually, was the highlight of the process of saying that, you know, that you will follow the, you know, the people into the the list hole, you'll do everything up to following him and lizardo and the people
that I was saying who the people, you know, who may be pretty much made this this that the Jews and the Christians, and he said Who else? Who else anyway, so I mean, they're make, you know, happy, then someone else would make and then Muslims have to have the Muslim version. People have What is this? whines, vines, whatever they have, right now, mine, right? There has to be the Muslim version, right? People make something the Muslim version has to come out What do you know? Now you have the happy penguin dance, whatever, that's it, you know, go around using that one happy penguin? Yeah, it's the happy penguin dance that's spreading around. pretty ridiculous dots. It's been done by, you
know, people, weddings and people wearing traditional clothes and, and it's spreading around in the Muslim countries.
Then before used to have the, I don't know, what's the other, the Harlem Shake, harlem shake, whatever, you know, everyday. I mean, it's like the Muslims are following everything, but they're not thinking like, Wait a second, as the Harlem Shake the Harlem Shake. And the way to I mean, forget about, you know, all the discourse, you know, people all you guys think is haram, we think we got, you know, fourth, or, you know, or, like, you know, only people saying that it's around and everyone else said it's okay, and so that those are just sidetracking you look at whether this is allowed or not simple as as much as you know, you would like you'd want to watch him like, haha,
that's funny, or sometimes it's not about whether it's funny or not, it's not about what the what's your nuts thinks it's not, you know, you know, even to be coming from the background that I come from when I hear some music sometimes sick. And you're like, I can, I can, you know, it's a beat that I would, you know, sport or something. But then you're like, Wait a second, is this allowed? And the whole thing was, you know, if you look at reality,
I came across someone posted on Facebook, like, I can't believe this kind of thing. It took me to a like a blog webpage of the people who did the video and it had all the names of the proudly all the names of the people who were in the video. And
at the same time, it said, you know, we you know, we Muslims are always being accused of being grumpy, blah, blah, and also being British.
The stiff upper lip, we want to show the people that were friendly and happy but I mean, we came from non Muslim backgrounds we know that if we were sitting there a humbler we're not on the other side of that as a non Muslims see the Muslims doing that? We don't do that we're gonna assume that these Muslims would laugh at them we know we set them you know we probably would say we're trying to be like us yeah in the sense of what they what they do and you know they show everyone else doing it dancing around in New York and London weather so they try to do what British Muslims version doesn't you know? Why Why not just
just make it like if you want to take part in it this is not permission for me photos of the you know, but if you're going to do that why don't you just do a regular loved one and have a few verses if you normally wouldn't stand out but this whole making a happy British Muslims it's just a sorted someone put real cheesy, even even forget the harar which is really cheesy and corny and like, you know, trying to just copied everyone else imitate what else just and flop. And going back similar to you know, what I show you want to show we're happy people, there's many things we can do just you know, show the Muslims greeting each other. So the Muslims given the short shot the Muslims, the
light on aspect of the family, you know, environmental devotions on a Friday and they meet up with each other, and they make it as a dowel material, you know, this is not a dice a ridiculous thing that people will look at and they'll be like, what is this? Make it as a dour project makes you want to show people that you happy be happy about your deed, okay. Could be from the law of bureaucracy fabbi Delica, who who hydronium ion ajowan. So anyway, this is the first any could be family law, in the form of Allah, in the in the land of Allah, this is what people should should take pleasure. And this is better than what they gather and support Allah.
Whatever it would be. I honestly I mean, I used to listen to Pharaoh. Back in the days, he was one of my favorites. And I'm not you know, we talked before him about music. And we have backgrounds in that we have good history with that, you know, but support a lot and this is the issue with Islam. That when you become a Muslim you take a stance and as a last phytoestrogenic lm and Allah, Allah Bane and not even the loss of Palatine this Deen of Islam comes between a man's heart his desires, and we have desires. I mean, I'll be like, you know, I'll be breakdancing right now if you want to be first time I'll be you know, many brothers Gandhi when we met for the bus, it was been much
better than me. But then he always says, and don't talk to me about breakdance man because any I still do this. But a lot when I look at him for exam brothers, like, Hey, man, this guy was like amazing man. But also planetary came between him and his desires. So that's what
we're gonna go for a break now. So have a break, have a KitKat
a chance to gain re
spend on you.
Aim to lower cut, welcome back time to please Allah, new time eight to 9pm, UAE time seven to 8pm Mecca time, please send us your comments, your recommendations on Facebook, or you can call us at the number that appears on the screen. And you can participate in this show. And we are discussing and talking about hijab, we kind of went into a little tangent talking about this happy British Muslim, I think because it involved sisters who, who had some kind of hijab, I don't, I've watched it, I don't recall seeing anyone that was actually properly
covered. But even if they weren't, I mean, that type of behavior to show the whole world like in two days, I think got 500,000 views or something like that, for the whole world. I mean, you know, as a husband, and you know, I mean, okay, you have issues with the sisters doing that. At the same time, there's issues with the husbands of their sisters, the brothers of those sisters, the fathers of those similar the brothers and the hazards of dancing with their wives. I mean, on the video, I remember one of one of my friends, he posted one time, you know, he said, I don't understand, where's the jealousy of the brothers who post pictures of their wives on Facebook, you know, which
is, you know, something that may put you put it out there for the whole world to see. And it's a I mean, it shows that I mean, how much do you love her number one? And how much do you protect her and how much jealousy you have towards, towards your WHY? And when you help her towards, you know, doing something that
at least and you can see the you know, is very questionable and very, very dodgy and very problematic. Then you have to, you know, kind of look at the manhood of that person and question that that was you know, what would the Sahaba do? Because, you know, you find sometimes people forget about dancing
The Saba sometimes when they would find their wives just waiting at the door for them, it was a sign from Julia, that this used to be like an invitation. Right? So I remember one of these habits, and he came on his wife was waiting at the door. It's about to, like, you know, because he thought it's like she's doing something from the jail. Yeah.
I mean, they're very strict, and that and I'm very jealous. And they're very protective of their, of their, of their women, because they understood, the value of the woman they understood, that the woman is, is the one that protects the house, the one that raised the children, the one that gives it to be in the house when the husband is not there, that she is the one who is basically, you know, taking a part of care of a great part of educating and raising the next generation for the online for the oma to have continuity, and to have or not even continuing to what I'm saying quality, in the continuity, the woman has to have quality and the deen and as soon as she loses that the hijab
becomes some kind of convertible thing that's, you know, just here, there's some kind of fashion statement, then you'll find that the daughters will be in the same position. And the whole shift goes from you know, from Asia from from from the this hobby ad goes to like, you know, this presenter and this actress and this you might have some kind of a job but she's, you know, the role. This is the, the image of the successful woman that you know, our girls want to talk to me. But without further ado, speaking on this topic today, we have our dear brother Salaam flower coming to our show. It's great to have you.
And can you please tell us a little bit about what you do first before we get into the actual thing? Okay, I have recently been appointed as the director with the Alamin Education Foundation. So I'm basically there to give them consultancy in terms of the Islamic activities, as well as the educational curriculum that they have. So this is what I've been doing. Apart from this. I was trained under shepherds shell Bashir Madani, and since then, I have been for the last five years I've been actively involved in the field of Dawa and unlike a friend of mine, Bullock was mentioning about the heroes of Islam. This was a project which we started in 2011. And since then, we've
covered quite a number of cities in India, and inshallah inshallah, inshallah, in the future, we can have one in the bay as well. So the workshop, basically, heroes of Islam focuses on motivating the youth, it is also to make them align themselves with the vision of the male and female companions of the Prophet salallahu the center, and of course, the vision of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam because we are lost somewhere, you know, just taking a cue out of what he was saying. The big issue, which I feel is, is the issue of a pita, and he Akita is quite important. If our foundations are not clear, then the buildings which span can collapse at any point of time, correct, sir, sorry to
interrupt there, but we have today people will think that it's not important that actually we should stay away from this discussion. You know, any stay away from Akita you know, killackey the donkey? Don't, I mean, not don't care about kill these issues, don't talk about these things. How do we, you know, what, how do we respond to them? And again, we're not pointing fingers or anything like that. But you said that Akita is like is the foundation if that's not built properly, then I mean, it makes sense, right, that the building if the foundation that, if I don't know, would anyone deny that, okay, there's the foundation of our Deen right. If someone feels that Akita is not an issue,
then we keep that portion of his aside, and we still focus on a theater, okay, that is crucial. And without In fact, let me give you one of the examples from the life of Ayesha delana. Upon occasion, a beggar came to the house of Ayesha delana and knocked on the door and this was after the demise of Rasul Allah.
And she, the lady who the slave woman, she opened the door and there was a beggar. And the beggar said give me something to eat, and they had nothing to eat. Imagine this is the wife of Rasul Allah salsa lesson and they have nothing to eat. So I showed her the Nana says Who is it says there is such and such beggars come? He says, whatever he's asking give it to him. We only have a handful of Baldy and I share with you Elena was fasting. So that is food for you to break your fast with. So I showed her the Ilana says give it to him and Allah will provide us and so Hannah law This was at a serve time. Come McGriff time and I showed her the Ilana has nothing to break up fast with. She
breaks a fast with a glass of water and she starts a mother Uppsala. And whilst she's reading her mother Uppsala, there is another knock on the door, and the slave woman attends to the door, and there is a man who comes and gives a good
since the time rasulillah salam had passed away, she had never come and knocked on the door. But now he comes and knocks on the door and gives a goat and I showed her the Alanna turns to the slave woman and says, Is this goat not better?
That handful of barley that we had a while ago. And she made a statement and this is the most remarkable statement from which I hope the sisters watching can take back a message. She said, none of you can be a true believer, unless your trust in Allah is more than what you see in the palm of your hand. So you can see it in front of your hand your dunya is in front of you, you mentioned about the penguin, dance and everything and you know, trying to you know, look like the others, imitating the others that is in front of your eyes, but your trust in Allah should be more than that. And that is where I want to see that you know, this is one of the crucial quality that we must
have. And you trust should be in Allah subhanho wa Taala and from there on to build the Akita, the Akita is very, very important. You must know what Allah subhanho wa Taala expects us of, we must know what Allah wants us to do. We must know how we must believe in Allah, how we believe in a Salalah selasa Why is it that we are ready to die for the honor of Rasul Allah? Why is it that we are ready to die for Allah, but we are not willing to live like a Muslim? So this is a crucial question which we must ask ourselves.
Because we're talking about Soviet and when we're trying to basically help our sisters to, to, to link back to, to look, you know, because a lot of people look forward, but they forget to look backwards. And we can't I don't I don't believe that we can move forward, without looking back. You can't. And there's a saying that, you know, maybe might not be related, but it says, you know, remember where you come from, you know, your rules, remember your roots, right? You can't You can't be
you can't be you can't move ahead, if you don't have a connection to the beginning. Right. There's the I mean, it just doesn't make sense. It's illogical. So what are you meaning here by talking about the the town process and we're talking about those examples, the the process of said that my generation is the best generation they went after, you know, the stars at the process me and he made the stars and my companions are like stars, whichever you follow, you will be guided?
How can we bring back this love of this hobby out in the sisters, and two, as opposed to look at examples of actors and whether they're Muslims or not, we're not talking about that. And actresses, and to look at these women who are truly successful in the sight of Allah, forget about the sight of you know, human beings inside of Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala himself, and he, you know, said that, so, how can we how does your program maybe a tackle this right? See, most important objective should be that we must introduce the life of these companions, the female companions, as well as the male companions from an early age. You see when our children are small, and you know, I'm coming
from India, where Bollywood is very famous. And you know, some of the leading superstars of Bollywood have got you know, the title fun and and people associate you know, people enjoy them. The point that I wish to make here is that we must introduce who Abu Bakr Siddiq, radi Allahu is right from the time a child is growing. Because this is a formative age. At the formative age, we must introduce them, not to certain film stars and certain songs, rather the Sierra of rasulillah salam, the lives of the companions. So it's very important, you know, you get these lovely books for children, like on Fatima de la, or Khadija de Alon. These books must be picked up. And the stories
must be narrated every night to the child, because while you're reciting it, the stories have a moral and lesson and that moral or lesson forms the nature of the child. So how would the hijab fall into into this? How would a parent use this to make a you know a girl daughter love hijab? For example, because that's one of the things we've been kind of neglecting. We're trying to see how can we still the love of hijab because we're talking about that into the hearts of those young sisters.
As you said this imprinting age is so important, right? You see,
what I look at it is two things. One is obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the other is obedience to Rasul Allah subhanaw taala. The definition of this obedience must be taught to the child right from the time he small, it's surprising that when a child is growing up, the child is scared if his mother sees him or her doing something wrong, or the father will see him or her doing something wrong. So they will avoid doing a sin in front of the parents. But behind the parents, they might be committing a sinner. So they have to be taught about who Allah is, and that Allah sees you even at that place where no one else can see you. So you bring in the obedience to Allah
subhanho wa Taala and as Rasul Allah, Allah Allah wa sallam, unless and until the position of Allah and His Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is made
The child will not understand the message of aligners or socialism, see what moment I have able to relate that whatever Allah subhanaw taala commands, I have to follow it, and whatever Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says, as I hear, I affirm, if that quality can be inbuilt in the child, then the moment you the child reads the verse of the arm, which says that say to the believing man, I'll say to the believing woman, that they should lower the gaze and guard their modesty, the moment they have shall read it, it will come into the heart. So it's important for those who are mothers and have young children at home, they start doing the therapy are from right now, the definition of
adeola Dr. Seuss, it has to be explained very well to the child from his age, you know, whatever his capacity is, okay.
Give us some examples of you know, let's go into more
practical things, but give it give us some examples that our sisters today can look towards or look back at. And why were these examples what you know, why would these be better examples follow them for example, someone today, right that are you know, I don't want to name girls that are out there on the you know, that our sisters themselves follow these days and they want to watch but can you give us some examples, right? Look, I would share the story of Sophia Vint, Abdulmutallab may Allah be pleased with her. She was the daughter of Abdul Kalam and the sister of Hamza de la. And her relation with Hamza delana was such so strong that only when Hamza delana bought a man. She bought
him a deal that point she had not bought him on. And she is also the mother of the famous companions Zubair or the Alon. So even Zubair had bought a man and she had not bought him and at that time, she used to punish her son. But what Islam did to her and I can talk about her bravery, you know, something which women should look up at. Many women are scared, you know, they get scared of the slightest thing and we were discussing the other day with a smile bullet that women get scared of cockroaches. He said even he gets scared of cockroaches but so Han Allah we don't have cockroaches around the way here Who me? I'm very brief Subhana Allah. May Allah reward you for your bravery, but
I did create it I said it's not quite being scared, but it's more like a yikes kind of like
they're not exactly very
appealing, are they? Not they aren't they unless you live in Thailand, you eat them. Of course, that could be possible, we can send them to some other countries where they eat them.
So anyways, well, coming back to the issue of the story of Sophia and Ilan, Sophia de Alon Has she was known for her bravery. And one example I can give you was when the when a battle had taken place, and the women of the household of the Messenger of Allah Salam and the other companions, they were put up at the fortress of fari. And in order to protect them, a male companion was sent and his name was Hassan bin sabot. And he was a four year Companion of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he had never lifted a sword in his life. So when he reached over there, a Jew came to know that the females are over here. So if one of us can enter, and attack them, and tell us, you know, we've done
our job. So one of them started climbing the fortress safira them delana sada. And she instructed Hassan or Hassan go and strike him before he hands us. His son says, Yeah, Sophia, if I could do that I would not have been here I would have been at the battlefield. I can't do that. So Sophia are the Alon and the brave woman that she was. She's took a step forward, and she struck him and chopped her head chopped his head off.
Now, now what happened at this point was his son when Sabbath was instructed on going through the head away to the enemies, because the enemies would know that look, the women are protected. So her son said, Look, I can't do that.
I've never done that. If I could do that. Also, I would have been at the battlefield. So saphira delana, the brave woman that she was, she just lifted and and she threw it back. Even at the Battle of brother.
I beg your pardon at the Battle of Ohio, where Hamza Jelena was martyred and at a point when the Muslim army had started staring defeat, when everyone was taking a step back saphira delana came forward, and she started striking the head of the enemy to a point that rasulillah salam instructed Zubair that go and bring your mother back, because I fear she may harm herself. And when Hamza delana got martyred, and saphira delana wanted to go up and see the body of Hamza delana rasulillah salam instructors have been tuned, allow her to go. So she told us about why is it that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam does not allow me to go and when Allah says on her did, she, he
allowed and when she went to somebody she said in the last webinar, miraggio, she cried, but she still had a brave heart She fought. So Subhanallah the point that we want to make over here is that our women must be better
They must be ready to take up any kind of tough situations which can come up in their life. And of course, we don't mean that, you know, if you have a tough situation with your husband, you become a sophea like she was with the enemy trapeze head off.
You can't afford to do that.
So this was the life of suffering or the Nana very briefly, but what I mean, what we say what we what we can relate it to is that on this side, when you say they have to be brave, is that they have to, we have examples of saphira della and how she was able to have patience and deal with these very stressful situations like battles. Absolutely. So this is just a look at this and say, you know, well, this martial law, she was not only like me, maybe I should this is what I'm living in a non Muslim country with a minority. Hang on. They were also the minority. They were being physically attacked, threatened with death. I'm not being threatened with death a stick and say to herself,
they stuck on their religion, and they had to sometimes like you said she had to take up arms to defend the other woman. Absolutely. The sisters don't have to do that. So sometimes they can say, Okay, I can do my job I can, I can stand proud and I can take that now. And again, that person is shouting comments, calling me a penguin or a ninja or whatever, out of the bus window. When I'm walking down to the supermarket, I can take that because I'm not having to go out with a sword and fight attackers off. They can learn to use that to look the best of personalities to have ever walked on the face of the earth was the Prophet Mohammed Salah lon. And he was not spared of titles,
titles, which was to the extent that he was called a sorcerer. He was called a magician. He was called a kebab and cassava, the person who is a perpetual liar, stuffer Allah, these are the kind of titles which was used on Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. And imagine the situation when I showed the Alon who was London, her character was landed that was another difficult situation which had come in the life of Rasulullah selam. But how Rasulullah saw Selim dealt with look, while the sisters must look up at female companions, as the role model, there is one role model which must be there in each of our heart, and that was a Salalah solemn, and we must learn how rasulillah salam did suffer. So
like you mentioned, the cases where people are calling them names, because they are taken up a job and the land where I come from, that's not a language, the Muslims are a majority, there are challenges which you will face, but how you are able to maneuver yourself and how you're able to build a man and put your trust in Allah, that this is solely for the sake of Allah, the moment you start thinking that look, I am wearing the hijab, because I shall look good, and I shall feel protected that thought, when you keep reminding yourself, then there's a problem. But the moment you were thinking this is only for the sake of Allah, then what ever people shall say it will make no
difference. Any of you, we have been given the instruction that the whole world is a place where you can muster pray, you can just read your Salah wherever you wish. If we start doing it in the middle of a road in the land of the kuffar and if they see any comment, does that mean we leave our Salah, we must be proud of identity.
We have to shala take a short break. And we'll be right back again we ask our audience to contribute to the show to ask questions and give us a call and show the number that appears on the screen. We'll see you in a bit. Sarah.
Sarah Marie COMM And welcome back from the break. Now before we went on for the break, obviously we were talking about some examples and how we mentioned Sofia de la Hannah, and how the sisters can see what kind of hard really physical struggle she had to deal with. But she remained steadfast on the deen and how they can really apply that quite easily. And most of the time, what is genuinely an easy situation most of the time, it's a mess even for the brothers having a Muslim appearance or doing certain aspects of their religion. It's more of a
self confidence issue. It's not really most of the time. It's not like a threat to their life, or those kinds of levels. It's something quite something quite easy and something quite simple. But before we continue, I believe we have a phone call
Mohammed from Mecca, Mashallah Salam aleikum
wa rahmatullah wa Taala.
I'm happy to talk to you and I want to thank you very much.
I enjoy him actually urine program.
I want to say that the way to Allah is not it's not difficult. It's full of happiness.
And when my husband died, oh,
my God got to have listening on his phone. I found the sweetness of life, believe me in publications and in prayer. So the way to allow
We must say for people that the weight loss is not difficult if it's full of happiness, it's full of the sweetness of life.
My English is not so good.
I hope that
thank you very much.
Thank you. Very nice comments there.
Okay, I mean, as you said, that you know real happiness is not in dancing in because these are
the very limited right and you need that that stimulant you need it on a perpetual basis right? With with a loss of Parramatta and choosing the path to Islam, you have that inner peace and happiness, okay, no one can take it right. So it's like, it doesn't you know, because Allah is always the only present right that Allah is Danny doesn't, you know, subpanel. So, any, you're always if you understand it, if you can see it, if you can, can, you know know your position and know, you know how important this is for you and us You never be without your happiness. You know, one of the things which you just said about
and the sister also mentioned about supplication that she finds me since application, Allah subhanaw taala gives the medicine for the heart. You see, we go whenever we have a problem with a heart one is a medical problem, and other is the spiritual problems, not for the spiritual problem. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given a medicine in the Quran, which is Allah basically Allah He that Marino kulu, that indeed, in the seeker of Allah shall the heart find peace, it shall find tranquility. So we must engage ourselves in a lot of zeker of Allah subhanho wa Taala me Subhana Allah hamdulillah Allah, but as much as we can do, as much of zeker, which we can do, this is medicine for our heart.
And for those sisters who face uphill task in taking the hijab, or any other aspects of Islam. If they continue with the seeker of Allah, indeed, their heart will be at peace, and inshallah they will be able to overcome any of these problems. Let's talk about someone actually posted and asked me to talk about this. But it was about two women that are mentioned the Quran, and one of them being Miriam. She's the only one to mention by name actually, in the only woman Yes, Allah in the Quran. Because it says that she initially took a hijab, okay, from them and so actually, the word hijab is used when it when
she was surfing. And we know that she was very young. Number one, okay, even from the, from the Israeli Israeli at the which are the small narrations that come from the Jews and Christians. But we know that she was quite young. And we know that she was so proud a lot in in charge with a great task, and she was the mother of a Sally's and one of the greatest prophets, any of the, you know, in Islam, which is Jesus. And then we have Asya, who was the wife of the worst person almost ever walked this earthen, right. And that is for our girl. And she was a believer. Right. And, speaking of supplication that the sister made, she made a supplication a very beautiful supplication to a
loss of panatela to give him a house in general,
any with a loss of parent and then this is so so beautiful that because now the sister was making so it's like supplication asst and your difficulty, what a difficulty to be, you know, you would say that, you know, she's a VIP. She's got everything she wants, yet, a loss of parent has given us the sweetness of a man. And she's asking Allah Smith, as you know, what our gentlemen mean for our family when he went home with Olivia, and he saved me from Pharaoh and is what he's doing. So. So how can we take these two women?
How the sisters can take them as exempt? I mean, how can you count what's, what do you think? Well, as far as I see, in fact, there are two other women which I would like to mention along with alzira delana. And Maria, may Allah be pleased. Asya may Allah be pleased with her and Maria, may Allah be pleased with her, which is Fatima and Khadija because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that many amongst the men have reached the stage of perfection. But as far as women are concerned, there are only four. One is ASEAN, the second is Miriam, the third is Fatima. And the fourth is Khadija Of course not in that order. May Allah be pleased with them. So there is a we must read more about the
life when we read the life of alzira delana like you just mentioned, she had the riches of the world. She would like to set she had a VIP lifestyle, whatever she wanted, she could
have got an all she had to do was she had to just follow her husband and obedience to husband. But she chose the punishment which their own gave on her for the sweetness of a man which he had. She preferred to go through that sacrifices, something similar to what sumaiya Allah be pleased with the first martyr in Islam went through that. All she had to do was say, I go back on the deen of Muhammad Salah, I leave the dino Muhammad salsola but she stuck to that punishment which she was facing. So again, drawing parallels with the issue of what we are talking of people being called names for taking up a job look into the lives that they had, they give their life for Islam. And
when it comes to simple simple things like your job, why is this simple thing because compared to slump following a job is like a basic and it's still not something like a major thing. I mean, of course it is important in Islam, but compared to your Eman, he job is just a facilitator. It facilitates the process for that people just let it go any for a single statement somebody says something and we let go of a job. A boss says that Jani we have to leave the job. Otherwise, how would you meet the customers etc.
Actually, I had a sister. I guess we're in the same high school, but she saw my paper and she messaged me, she was saying that, you know, that's how she left the hijab. She was wearing it, but then people started saying that. I mean, she I guess, you know, the question comes into a lot of sisters say that, you know, well, I'm not that good. So I'll just leave a job because I'm not the good representative hijab, you know? I mean, how you know, a lot of sisters have the question. Can they just leave a job because they're not good represents so how does it work? This this is a total whispering of the shaitan shaitan wants you to think that you are not good. This is what the
shaitaan wants you to do all the time. He wants you to think that you are not good. Your Eman is low. Let me tell you something. One of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he started going to the streets and started saying that I am a monastic. I am a monastic, Abu Bakr Siddiq. Delano saw him and he said What happened? Why are you calling yourself a monastic? He says when I am with rasulillah salam, my Eman is very high. But when I am away from rasulillah, salam, my Eman level comes down to Abu Bakr Siddiq. Ilana says In that case, you know, even I am a monastic. So Sol, Allah Salam says to this incident, that if your Eman level would have been at the same level
all the time, you would have seen the Indian so the man goes through ups and downs. So sister should not let these things and you should not let these things affect you. If you if you allow the shaitan to overpower you when this thought comes in your mind you should also be laminar shaitana regime. This is total whisperings from the shaper. You know, this is an aspect of Islam who will take you away from Islam. Who is your open enemy? Ask yourself Satan, Satan is the opposite.
And you must always ask your question. For whose sake am I wearing this? If I've taken the job? Is it because of pleasing people? Many, many people take the simple ledger. And they say that we no we want to look simple. And let people know that you know how modest we are. Even that is wrong. Because that also comes into play. That's also Sure. So while some sisters may take a job, which is very decorative and may attract attention, something very simple a job with the intention that you know people will look at me and think we are very pious, it has nothing to do with people, it's between you and Allah, or ordering them. And obeying the words of Allah as
tight but just to wrap up, we're actually running out of time. And just a few closing remarks when it comes to because I think now we'll wrap up the episodes of hijab, of course, are sisters any depending where they are in the world. And we pretty much live in a global village today. In some areas you might have obviously, it's more the culture is more conducive towards a job. But at the same as you said there's something between a loss of Chinatown and the servant and for those who are facing challenges those sisters who might be second guessing themselves so you know, question themselves whether you know I should do this or I should not any, you know, it's just we tell you I
just do it, just just take the step take the step towards the last method and you'll find a locum any towards you. And just commit and you know, I'm not saying be proud of it. But I'm saying like feel that you are doing it for a lot smarter and don't feel you know, weak or negative or oppressed or anything like that. Because all that the only thing that you're doing is that you pleasing a loss of absolute you know you are pleasing Allah subhanaw taala you are obeying the orders of last matter and there can only be benefit on it. And in following all the other paths that all the fashion hijab and not wearing Hijab
I mean how much time do you have to impress people how many years how many days do you have it's going to end even the beauty is or fade away and then you're going to reach that point where you know what well you know my all my beauty all my my you know youth has gone or you know now let me start you know becoming you don't know you're gonna reach that or not
so you don't you know this life is too short 22 two took to follow these whispers of a time to follow
the whispers of the shade time in from the ends and from the human beings which are so many and you know when shaytan comes to me doesn't tell you that you know this is here some alcohol you drink he tells you here's a bottle of water
it's like it looks like water almost you know just destroy a little bit so he kind of he takes something that might be helpful and starts twisting slowly slowly slowly Can you know
take that job a bit this way put a little bit of that way do it cuz I'm happy dancing video.
It's okay everyone except for the most fun you'll impress the people you know people will not think that you're so grumpy your muscles are so grumpy you know commercial the world who you really are somehow and I always as I always say if Ross was awesome he would be here with he participate in that with the approval that would be happy with a laugh at that this is an in the end the questions we have to ask ourselves does UCLA hire a library freak for joining us today and Mashallah hopefully we can have you again we'll hopefully have you shortly in the future inshallah you and your nice pink shirt inshallah
