Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Shara filmbay, when mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah He really he was. He was lm de Sleeman Kaziranga, Sierra Nevada. My brother and sisters.

00:00:16--> 00:00:23

We have completed a full year of lectures on a flap of Giamatti.

00:00:24--> 00:00:48

I think I've done 54 This is the probably the 54th lecture, which means we are two weeks more than one year because one year is 52 weeks Alhamdulillah I thank Allah soprano telogen delallo, for enabling us to talk about these matters to enabling us to give us this content. And to enable us to

00:00:53--> 00:01:02

remind ourselves about the desired code of conduct for Illuminati of Rasulullah masala

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

for those of you who haven't thought about that,

00:01:10--> 00:01:26

the term the title itself o'clock of the oma T is an English title. It is not meant to be understood in the Arabic sense Amati in Arabic means my a member of my oma

00:01:27--> 00:01:35

so only as well as a Salaam can say Mati. Nobody else can say Mati. We say we are from the oma of Hama, sallAllahu, Alayhi. Wa, he was,

00:01:36--> 00:01:49

what in English was a Amati means anyone who's of the oma of Solomon, that is the logic behind the title Alhamdulillah. That is the understood sense of it. And I just want to make this clarification now.

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

Therefore, this final lecture in the series, I want to go back to the basics.

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

Going back to the basics is a very important and powerful strategy that we use in organization consulting, which is, as you know, why, within quotes day job,

00:02:14--> 00:02:30

especially when you have organizations, which seem to be in growth organizations, which were, especially if they're doing well previously, and they seem to have got themselves into difficulties, we use this strategy, which is called back to basics.

00:02:33--> 00:02:42

And we said, look at the fundamentals of how you are running this organization. Very interestingly, I was speaking to a friend of mine,

00:02:43--> 00:02:54

who is now retired, but at that time, he was a Squadron Leader. And he was a pilot in the Indian Air Force and used to fly for a long time, in his case to fly fighters.

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

So

00:02:57--> 00:03:17

I asked him, I said, what happens in a crash? What happens if you are in before a crash, not in a crash? What happens if you find that you are in trouble, something is happening, you will look like you're in a tailspin, or you look like the suddenly the engines have lost power, and a crash is imminent. What is it that?

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

What are you trying to do?

00:03:21--> 00:03:55

He said to me, we are trained to go to the rule book. Now I thought, I thought to myself, you know, what is he saying? We mean, pull out on manual and start leafing through it or something? He said, No, no. He said back to the rule book, meaning he said the first rule is do a complete instrument check. So now, you've done all the instrument check, before you took off, everything was working fine. Otherwise, you would not have taken off. during the flight. Also, you'll be looking at the instruments all the time, because especially in modern aircraft,

00:03:56--> 00:04:40

a lot of stuff happens electronically. And the pilot is not consciously taking decisions and moving pins and needles and so on. So he's looking, he said, despite all that, when you are in trouble, the first rule is look at, do an instrument check again. Now basically, he's saying back to the basics, because when was the time you did the instrument check before when you were sitting on the ground before you took off? So you go back to a position where now you are as if you're sitting on the ground? Now what do I do? I'm just about to begin my flight. What do I do I do a complete instrument check to ensure that everything is functioning. He said do the instruments because that is going to

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

throw up the root of the problem that's going to tell you exactly what has happened. You think you know what's happened you say engine has lost power, but engine has lost power is the outcome. Why did the engine lose power is the question. Did the engine lose power because there is a leak in the

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

gas tank which we know you're aware of very severe problem also have a risk of fire or did the engine lose power because there is a block in the fuel line? Or did the engine lose power for some other reason for an electrical reason, for example, nothing was fuel. Right now, the instrument check is the only way I'm not saying that you will have answers to all these questions maybe some questions cannot be answered there needs to have it needs to be a physical inspection of the engine by the aeronautical engineer, obviously, you can't be doing that you know, 20,000 feet in the air but at least it will give you the instruments are the things you have this is your asset, this is

00:05:40--> 00:05:47

your resource. And this will give you a an indicator to what you think will work

00:05:48--> 00:06:35

or what the problem might be. So, back to basics Now, therefore, I want to talk here about back to basics. Now, what are the basics as far as we are concerned in our Deen which we need to focus on the num Allah, I won't use the handy services where he said, he said the halaal is clear and the Haram is clear. And between the two are the doubtful things. He said alhaja Ian wahama obion webinar Houma Mousavi hat, he said the halaal is clear. And the Haram is clear. And between the two are doubtful things and what must we do with the doubtful things? He said leave that which is doubtful for that which is not.

00:06:36--> 00:06:49

Which means I am It is a matter which is I'm in doubt about what must I do? Leave it, leave it until I clarify the doubt. When I clarify the route, then I will know if it is holiday or if it is

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

in another holidays. Adam said

00:06:54--> 00:07:10

Shepherd, he said every king has his boundaries. Right? The king has his property. That property has boundaries. He said the boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala are the things that he has made Haram.

00:07:12--> 00:07:29

He said a shepherd who grazes his sheep close to the boundary of the king is in danger because it is entirely possible that in that whole flock of many sheep, one or more will stray across the boundary into the king's land, and the shepherd will be in trouble.

00:07:31--> 00:07:59

So the safest option for this effort is what? Keep away. Don't go close to the mouth. Don't even forget about obviously you don't cross the boundary, but do not even go close to the boundaries stay far away from the boundary of the king. Otherwise you will put yourself in trouble relating it he gave this as an example as an analogy we related to our Deen What does it mean? It means doubtful things, leave them Don't go near anything which is doubtful.

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

And this is a fundamental principle. Now, what happens? What is the first principle in Islam The first principle of Islam is activate. It is the worship not a one God. Please understand it. This is another big problem. We say Muslims, Muslims worship one god no Muslims do not worship one God. Muslims worship Allah. The heart is important. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:25--> 00:08:36

a law is the personal name of our rub. The Creator of the heavens and the earth, the master of the throne, the one to whom is our return.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

Calico Samar

00:08:40--> 00:09:05

rot bhullar Shield Karim wy la healable. See, this is Allah Subhana Allah, not Allah. There's a difference. Please visit Allah is a la Allah. Who is Allah? I don't know who else is not honest. Allah is a ha, Allah. God translate that to God. That is one of the many problems with English language translations.

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

If God wills what God which God how God, who is this God? I don't I don't recognize any god.

00:09:15--> 00:09:22

if Allah wills, specific day, Allah subhanho wa Taala gela did Allah who has an identity?

00:09:23--> 00:09:30

Right, he has an identity, this identity is expressed by his personal name, which is a law.

00:09:32--> 00:09:44

So who is a Muslim? Not one who was who worships one God. A Muslim is the one who worships Allah subhanho wa Taala gelato

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

and nobody else

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

the to our joint La Ilaha there is no one worthy of worship Illa Allah

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

except Allah.

00:10:05--> 00:10:20

It starts with NaVi, and it ends with his bath. It starts with denial. And it ends with reaffirmation and confirmation, which this denial actually supports, and makes more emphatic.

00:10:24--> 00:10:43

If I say I worship only Allah, that's one statement. But if I say, I do not worship anyone except Allah, that's another statement, which of them is more emphatic. The second one, La ilaha illa Allah.

00:10:44--> 00:11:20

So, the fundamental basic number one basic is what is nowship we do not join any body as a partner to Allah, we do not join anyone as equal to Allah. We do not join anyone as a shareholder in Allah subhanho wa Taala is holed up in his power in his glory in His Majesty, in what he possesses in what he owns, in what he can do and what he cannot do. He has no partners, whatsoever. No other human being no other creature, no other nothing.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala, who Allahu Ahad call who Allah

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

Allah did not say hello Allah Hawaii.

00:11:31--> 00:11:39

Because if you say one in the Arabic language if you say one then there is a two but for I had there is no two there is no plural for I had

00:11:40--> 00:11:44

not had any or had any No, there's no I had I had

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

hula hula.

00:11:50--> 00:12:20

This is Allah. Allah is laser comm easily he show you on wahoo was Samuel bossy, there is nothing in creation, like a lot of animals. All creation is different from Allah subhanaw taala Allah is separate from and above all creation and above everything and anything that people try to join with. Allah subhanaw taala therefore because he's unlike anything creation, he's unlike anything in creation in every respect.

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

Because if you take out the living things in creation, they are born out of something

00:12:29--> 00:12:45

right every living thing in creation, even if it's an amoeba, which is just dividing, there was one Amoeba and then it divided into two. So you asked it was the second one where did you come from? It came from the first one. So all living things came from something.

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

Right?

00:12:49--> 00:12:54

The typical chicken and egg question which comes first the chicken or the egg comes from something

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

who will hi Eureka Yoo

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

hoo Allah one

00:13:03--> 00:13:15

lays a couple Akashi, who will acid lays up as a cache. He is the first and there is nothing before him. And he is the last and there is nothing after.

00:13:18--> 00:13:54

So Allah has no I don't want to even use the word parents and children and so on and so forth. But just to illustrate, Allah has no father and mother. Allah has no son and daughter. Allah has no relatives. Allah has no cousins, Allah has no aunts and uncle, Allah, all of these relations which I mentioned to you our relations of living things, not only humans, even animals, every animal as a mother or father, every animal has an aunt or an uncle and so on so forth, they may not recognize them as such, but if you know the animals and if you are, if you ask a farmer, the farmer will tell you this cow and that cow and swallows all of this

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

creature

00:13:57--> 00:14:00

characteristics that do not apply to the Creator.

00:14:02--> 00:14:23

Allah is unique, Allah is alone, and Allah is alone in every aspect of his father. He is alone in being the Creator. He is alone in being the Sustainer he is alone in being the protector. He is the he is alone in being the one the questioner to whom nobody can ask a question.

00:14:25--> 00:14:37

He is alone in giving life. He is alone in giving death. He is alone in a one to home every living thing, human or otherwise will return.

00:14:39--> 00:14:49

He is completely unquestionable in terms of what he does, nobody can ask him any question. Nobody. He does not have to justify anything that he does to anybody.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

He owns everything. He controls everything. Nobody owns him. Nobody controls. He knows everything and

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

What he chooses to share of his knowledge with his creatures, they know only that much, nothing more.

00:15:09--> 00:15:18

There is no creature of Allah subhanaw taala, who has more knowledge or knowledge equal to the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

whoever that might be, whoever, without boundaries, any creature of Allah subhana wa

00:15:29--> 00:15:45

has only as much knowledge, as Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to reveal this revelation maybe in the form of Ye, it may be in the form of enabling and allowing the creatures to discover things of knowledge by their own effort.

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

All of that comes from Allah.

00:15:52--> 00:16:00

So there's no need to get confused. As a scientist knows, scientists only know what Allah teaches them. Scientists only know what Allah chooses for them to know.

00:16:03--> 00:16:21

The nature in which this knowledge is given to human beings, whether they're ambia, or whether they are scientists or anywhere else, the nature of that transmission changes, somebody gets a letter, somebody gets a phone call, somebody gets an SMS message, somebody gets

00:16:23--> 00:16:36

something else. Right, I'm giving drawing an analogy with our own communication. So also Allah subhanho wa Taala, even with the ambia, it's all ye musala is Allah Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him.

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

But also Lazarus Allah.

00:16:42--> 00:16:59

Allah swagger also spoke to but the majority of them are here and God came in different ways. Some through jewelry, laser jewelry, Sam came and said, This is what Allah says. In some other cases, Allah subhanaw taala inspired an abuser, directly in a way which he knows

00:17:04--> 00:17:07

and so forth. So knowledge comes from Allah,

00:17:08--> 00:17:29

unique every respect, and that is why we worship only Allah and we seek help only from Allah, he cannot, he cannot, he cannot, he cannot say this is the shine of Allah subhanho wa Taala gelato which is not shared with anybody. So this is the first of the fundamentals.

00:17:31--> 00:17:49

arising out of this first fundamental is therefore because we worship only Allah and we ask help only from Allah, we also obey only Allah subhana wa whatever Allah subhanaw taala told us in Islam, this is non negotiable.

00:17:51--> 00:18:26

There is no point in discussing it, there is no need to discuss it. Because it is non negotiable, what Allah decreed is decreed what Allah allowed, is allowed, what Allah disallowed is disallowed, whether the world and all its inhabitants agree or don't agree, it will not change that. And there is no one in the world with the authority to change that. And if somebody changes it, then they are wrong and they are going to answer dollars ran out on the day of judgment as simple as that. It doesn't matter you like it, you don't like it, you can take it you can lump it whatever.

00:18:27--> 00:18:33

What Allah allowed is allow what Allah did not allow is not allowed and nobody can change that.

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

Now, Allah subhanaw taala communicated his wishes.

00:18:44--> 00:18:58

he communicated his wishes, he communicated His commands in two forms. One directly in the Quran, Allah Kareem which is the actual speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:00--> 00:19:21

And the second way in which Allah subhanho wa Taala communicated His commands, which is also the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But it came to us through Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, even the Quran came to us through an Amazon seller, but the way he communicated the brand was was he said, This is what I say direct words. Paulo Allahu Ahad.

00:19:23--> 00:19:29

See the integrity of the conveyor integrity of the messenger sallallahu sallam.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

I always give the example.

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

If I

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

supposing somebody comes to meet me

00:19:40--> 00:19:40

and

00:19:42--> 00:19:49

my assistant or my son or daughter, somebody comes and says so and so has come to Me too. So I tell them,

00:19:50--> 00:19:54

tell him listen, Kevin, tell him

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

to have a seat in the sitting room in the drawing room.

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

Tell him to have a seat in the drawing room.

00:20:04--> 00:20:11

What is my son or a sister whoever is taking this message? What is that person going to say to the person who came

00:20:13--> 00:20:21

he is going to say, Please have a seat in the dining room. He is not going to go there and say, Tell him to have a seat in the driveway.

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

Right? A lot of our data said what Allah said cool, say

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

Hola Hola. Hola. He is a lion is one.

00:20:37--> 00:20:46

So this tell or say is being stated to was awesome. So we didn't pause logically speaking.

00:20:47--> 00:20:56

What should as soon as I have done he should have left out the say because says fine. This is the command where you say this.

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

He could have simply gone and said

00:21:01--> 00:21:01

Hola Hola.

00:21:04--> 00:21:07

He didn't do that. He said Paul, who Allah.

00:21:08--> 00:21:39

This is the integrity of the message. This is one of the many pieces of evidence to show that this column of data has come to us completely unchanged with total and complete integrity of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is why we believe it is the command of Allah why because Mohammed Salah Sallam said so and he was so truthful. And he was he had such tremendous integrity that we believe in completely. So is our call Oh Allah call out O'Meara beautiful. Pull out a bit of beingness call Yeah, you can

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

call it Allah, Arturo Su, Jo many places.

00:21:50--> 00:22:18

So this is one way in which the command of a login and the second wage came was where a lot of I know that same speech of Allah but Allah subhanaw taala taught it to me Salah Sanam, and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught that to us. He is not teaching from his own desire. He's teaching what Allah subhanaw taala told him to teach in the way that Allah subhanaw taala told him to teach and that is why Allah subhanaw taala clarified is very clear clearly, and he said, Well, my young people

00:22:19--> 00:22:33

in who are ill, wha hoo, hoo ha he does not speak of his own religion. He does not speak of his own design he does not speak because he decides to say something, he only says that which has been revealed to him.

00:22:34--> 00:22:46

This is one of the most fundamental and powerful evidences and pieces of proof that the I have these of Rasul Allah is Allah Salam Are ye from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

because Allah made his blanket statement,

00:22:51--> 00:23:21

Allah did not say he does not speak of his own volition, he speaks only what is revealed to him in the Quran, Allah insha Allah, He speaks only what is revealed doing so therefore, Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us a creamy Salah talese Cree, established my Salah for my Vicar How am I to do that Yara, I accepted love by Allah mala Bay was added, I accept what you have told me. I would like to do it. What is the way?

00:23:22--> 00:23:42

asked Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in our mowlana Mohammed Salah Salam taught us how to do Salah. How do you do that? He didn't just dream it up. It was not his imagination. He was taught that by Allah subhanho wa Taala. If Allah wanted, he could have put it all in the Quran. The Quran could have become 10 volumes. No.

00:23:43--> 00:23:55

This is the choice of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the first thing we need to understand that we do not worship anyone except Allah subhanho wa Taala and pronounce it correctly. And secondly,

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

don't translate it as God and so on and so on. It's not God It is Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

And then secondly, that is the reason why we obey only Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:24:09--> 00:24:20

and what do we obey, we obey what he told us directly in the Kalam in the Quran, and we obey what he told us through mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he was

00:24:24--> 00:24:27

then we come to the next which is the

00:24:28--> 00:24:55

permissions and prohibitions of Allah subhanaw taala the basic principle of the Sharia is very clear, which is that whatever is privated has been specified, what is not specified is permissible. So everything now in the Sharia is very simple, very important to understand. There are two aspects there is a aspect of the bar that so Aki Danny button and there is an aspect of the mamilla

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

our dealings with the external world. One is the

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

Dealing with Allah subhanho wa Taala with our worship and the other one is dealing with the external world, in the FBI that the principle is, everything is haram. In that in our aqidah and in our worship, everything is haram everything is prohibited, except what Allah subhanho wa Taala permitted, same principle La Ilaha there is no one worthy of worship completely, nobody is worthy of worship Illa Allah except Allah. So similarly in the in our forms of worship, and our killer, everything is private, except what Allah permitted. What did Allah permit whatever Rasul Allah is, Allah is Allah did

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

I want to worship Allah?

00:25:50--> 00:26:01

What is the way to do Salah? Because that is what rasulillah salam did, how must I do Salah the way Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us Sol Lu Kamara, I to Mooney who said

00:26:03--> 00:26:17

he said worship as you have seen me worship me great. So I said no, I want to I love Allah so much I can do such that is not enough for me I want to make 10 to do my Salah is invalid has finished I have to repeat the Salah

00:26:20--> 00:26:23

because rasuna Salah Salem did only to sue in every regard.

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

So everything is prohibited except that which is permitted. This is with regard to

00:26:30--> 00:26:47

the A Maddox. I want to do any as I want to dedicate a sheep to this dead person and sacrifice the sheep in the name of the dead person. Is it Hello hora, did Hassan do it? He did not do it. Therefore it is what it is Hara.

00:26:51--> 00:27:07

I want to praise Allah to Juma and instead of Torah God I want to pray for is it permissible? No, it is not. Why not? We did not do that. So in there by that everything which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did and told us to do is halal. Anything other than that, right?

00:27:09--> 00:27:19

In the dunya in the mamilla in our dealings and so on so forth. The rule is the opposite, which is everything is permissible, except that which has been specifically prohibited.

00:27:21--> 00:27:31

Right? Everything you don't have to ask questions. Can I bet can I build plans? Yes. You don't need to ask, Can I buy can I build motorcars? Yes, can I set up a hospital? Yes.

00:27:33--> 00:27:34

Can I deal

00:27:35--> 00:27:45

in insurance can I trade shares? Yes, what is prohibited except stocks in companies which are engaged in haram business

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

accept doubtful matters

00:27:50--> 00:27:58

except interest based transactions. So you don't need to ask every single thing can I sell flowers can I sell chickens wrong

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

in trade in sales, what is not permitted interest based transactions are not permitted. Dealing even without intention, somebody says I will sell you a a

00:28:14--> 00:28:27

piggery which is a pig farm and a pig slaughterhouse and a pig meat pork processing center, I will sell this to you and I will gift it to you free

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

take it and run Can you do that? No.

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

Because it is private.

00:28:35--> 00:28:43

No dealings in transaction which are prohibited no dealings and things which are private, somebody says I will make you the the chairman of Citibank

00:28:45--> 00:28:46

is it permissible? No, it is not.

00:28:48--> 00:28:56

Because that is a commercial bank, which is dealing in interest based transactions converted into an Islamic bank with non interest financing hamdulillah fantastic.

00:28:59--> 00:29:26

Right. So in a way that everything is prohibited except that which is permitted and what is permitted is one of his assembly. And in other things, everything is permitted complete freedom or hamdulillah. Except those things which are private to understand is also that whatever Allah privated gelato is prohibited for our benefit. Allah subhanaw taala prohibited intoxication who benefits

00:29:28--> 00:29:33

even those who drink alcohol even those who do drugs will not tell you that it is good for you.

00:29:36--> 00:29:50

Allah subhanho wa Taala promised privated lying and cheating, who does it benefit a society which is based on the untruth? Who does it benefit? Remember nothing do with Islam? This I mean meaning is not only beneficial for Muslims, anybody,

00:29:52--> 00:29:56

as an individual as a human being, would you rather deal with somebody who's truthful or somebody who's like

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

a no brainer, right?

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

Allah subhanaw taala privated

00:30:04--> 00:30:12

all kinds of extra marital sex, whether it is pre marriage or after marriage

00:30:15--> 00:30:18

being faithful to your spouse who does it benefit

00:30:19--> 00:30:23

Allah subhanaw taala promised all of private all forms of oppression

00:30:24--> 00:31:11

no matter who the person is, who does it benefit. So, therefore, you have to understand that as far as our provisions are concerned these benefit us this is the fundamental principle in the now in the privation also what is to be understood is that the basic principle in the Sharia is if something is privated that it is privated irrespective of quantity, listen carefully, if something is privated it is prohibited irrespective of quantity and everything to do to do with it is also private. For example, pork is private. one gram of pork is private and one sliver of pork is private and one rasher of bacon is private and one spare rib is private in one piece of pork in in a pepperoni pizza

00:31:11--> 00:31:14

is privated the whole pig is private.

00:31:16--> 00:31:35

pig skin bags are privated pig skin and bags and shoes are privated having a pig farm is private and having a pig slaughterhouse or having shares that businesses privated transporting and keeping and so anything to do with pigs is prohibited in Islam.

00:31:39--> 00:32:27

Allah said men are not permitted for a man for a Muslim man to wear gold or to wear silk is private. So someone comes and tells you I what is beautiful. So you know it is Jaguar it is silk brocade. Can I can I wear? What's the answer? And the person says, you know, it's not really fully silk. It's silk and it's complete has other things, the actual quantity of silk in that is only 10%. What is the answer? The answer is that even if there is one single silk thread in it, I will not wear it because it is against my taqwa Allah subhanaw taala privated it and to give you an analogy, and I'm giving you this very deliberately. To give you an analogy, if you came to me and said here is this

00:32:27--> 00:32:42

beautiful fabulous biryani which is you know, the only place you will get better than that is agenda. But this video in which I'm giving you has one small little bowtie once one little piece of pork

00:32:43--> 00:33:01

Will you eat it, you will not eat it because this is the zoom that we have done our ourselves we have chosen to make some things halaal and some things are different from what Allah made. We have chosen to give some things more importance and something's less important. The borders because of our own culture.

00:33:03--> 00:33:11

So interest based transactions which Allah subhanaw taala declared war against. We treat them as you're given in the modern world, blah blah blah.

00:33:14--> 00:33:14

Right.

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

Gambling is

00:33:18--> 00:33:32

to go to a casino to go to a Racecourse to be a member of the racecourse to be a member of the box to be a member of the board of a race club. These arrived before male operator These are for us a social status to be the head of a club.

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

Your jewelry on casabianca die,

00:33:37--> 00:33:50

which is a a stronghold and a place of all gamblers and drunkards, alcoholics to be the president of that club as a matter of prestige for a Muslim in Manila when

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

we should be ashamed of ourselves.

00:33:56--> 00:33:57

Because this is what we have done.

00:33:59--> 00:34:05

This is what we have done with the laws of Allah because it suits us but porque es una forma tu tu tu tu

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

so how can you do it you don't say tu tu tu for interest based banking.

00:34:12--> 00:34:18

Please, if you are going to legislate in your own life, that's the shortest way to get to the

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

ultimate goal.

00:34:22--> 00:34:38

Even if it is one drop even if it is one gram whether it is white gold, black, gold, yellow gold cream or whatnot, I don't care. Gold is gold. I will not wear it. Can I have gold bonds? Yes we can have gold bonds can have gold bricks. I say buy gold and save it save it. Yes you can do that.

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

No problem. It Allah did not

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

prohibit us from owning it.

00:34:46--> 00:34:47

Where

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

can I have a cell phone?

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

That is different from book

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

but you cannot wear cell because only the wedding

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

is privately

00:35:01--> 00:35:13

What Allah is prohibited the principle in Sharia is what Allah privated it is privated irrespective of amount, and everything to do with it is also private.

00:35:14--> 00:35:38

As I told you back to basics, I don't want to take more of your time This isn't enough, do not do and do not do Hara insha Allah, we will be in January. What goes without saying is fulfilled of all right what Allah subhanho wa Taala met First, make sure you do that. No excuses. And the first of those five, afterthought he is Salah.

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

Pray on time, don't delay your prayers. For the men, go to the masjid wherever you can go to the budget, pray in the masjid don't pray at home.

00:35:49--> 00:36:14

For the women, if you go to the masjid that is good for you. Alhamdulillah you're not compelled to go there. But definitely It is recommended. And it's a good thing if you go and pray in the masjid by Jama. But if you can't do that, no problem. We are pray at home. But make sure you pray and you pray on time. And you never ever leave your prayer for any reason which is not permissible in the Sharia. Of course if you are sick or something that's a different matter

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

than fasting, then Zakat

00:36:20--> 00:36:26

altogether and fasting. And then for those who have the ability melas Mandela granted to all of us Hajj

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

fulfilled his wife All right.

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

Stay away from

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

the fundamental principle. Stay away from ship every one of you.

00:36:39--> 00:36:50

And insha Allah we will be in gentlemen, the little proof for that is the hand is where a Bedouin came to his house. And he said he was gonna tell me how can I get too generous?

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

I'm

00:36:54--> 00:37:29

not telling you the exact words of the Hadees I'm explaining to you the meaning of it. So he said he asked Allah What must I do to get to him said do not make sure do not join anyone as part of dollars worth or Asia I will do that much and nothing more than a measure and is there anything else you said let me pray the first Salah five times a day he said I will do that and nothing morozova got some people who are unarmed they got irritated you say what kind of man he is no other BS. He's speaking to Mr. Solomon this way. That was an assumption liberal liberal he's a man from the village he doesn't understand on this level. He's anything else that was an object gives I got this is how

00:37:29--> 00:37:32

much I got you must pay the man said I will do that and nothing more.

00:37:34--> 00:37:58

Then he said what else now? in Ramadan fasted on the days of the of the month, he said I will do that and nothing more. What else? He said, I'm sorry if Allah has given me the ability then you may have had one time or once in your lifetime. He said I will do that. Nothing more. Anything has nothing else he went away. He also said to the Sahaba if that man does what he promised to do, Allah will give him gentlemen

00:37:59--> 00:38:08

my brother and sister this Deen is Alhamdulillah easy. This Deen is beneficial for us in this dunya as well as the ACA

00:38:09--> 00:38:20

and this Deen the privation in this Deen are a blessing for us. These prohibitions came for us for our benefit.

00:38:21--> 00:38:52

Let us treat them like them. Don't read the privations of this Dean as if this is a musi button is not it's for our benefit. It's the way in which any sensible moral, ethical, responsible human being would like to lead their lives, free from intoxication, free from drug, drug and substance abuse, free from lying and cheating, being faithful to their partners, being faithful to any covenants and promises they make being highly trustworthy and trustable.

00:38:53--> 00:39:11

indulging and doing businesses only which are beneficial for all society being helpful to one another. What's wrong with that? Tell me what's wrong with that? Who's got a problem with leading a life like this? If you got a problem leading a life like this something is wrong with you.

00:39:12--> 00:39:34

There's no need for you to feel apologetic about Islam. Alhamdulillah we have a beautiful religion, which is beneficial for everybody. lying and cheating Allah Islam does not say you can lie to non Muslims, you can cheat non Muslim No. All of these are blanket statements no lying period, no cheating period. No deceiving people period. No causing harm to anyone period.

00:39:35--> 00:39:48

Now, Michelle, is not a Muslim is not a Muslim is not a Muslim. And a Muslim. He said the one from whose tongue and whose hand his neighbor is not safe. He did not say Muslim neighbor, his neighbor, whoever the neighbor is.

00:39:50--> 00:39:54

That neighbor must be safe from your evil. This is Islam.

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

That's going

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

to enable us

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

to live

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

live our lives according to the beautiful standard that Allah sent for us which is the standard of Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Holly he while he was chosen, that is the best way to live in this world.
