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

00:01:25--> 00:01:54

father says I will buy you a house. Right? Any of y'all know your father. By Your heart is owned by you. You know a trailer will go by your nice house because the idea is people who bought the house my father so your father has a sense of respect and a sense of honor for himself. I'm buying my son a house. Right? If I put my son in a trailer park, I'm gonna look bad so you can't do that. But by God's grace

00:01:55--> 00:02:07

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

you want to sleep on the floor. That's your choice but if you want a beautiful bed and stuff, also your choice. First option, second option is

00:02:18--> 00:02:19


00:02:20--> 00:02:21

you get the house

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

the four walls

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

and then you have no control over anything else. Everything in that house. I decide

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

which is a better option. First one right obviously

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

you got the house for free and then you can do whatever you like.

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

This is the nature of this life.

00:02:45--> 00:02:49

This is the nature of life. Allah subhanaw taala says I will decide how long you live.

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

Live it the way you want to live.

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

Make your life as beautiful as comfortable or as painful as you like.

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

I will decide if you get married or not.

00:03:05--> 00:03:20

Well once I give you a spouse, is that marriage going to be a beautiful marriage where you go and fall in love with your wife every day and she falls in love with you every day and this is a beautiful existence which is Jana on earth or whether you want to make it Jahannam on the earth after you

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

I give you children

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

you want to make those children into southern Nigeria for yourself or you want to make the children's as I will jariya for yourself your choice

00:03:35--> 00:03:38

right. This is the nature of life.

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

Allah subhanaw taala decides the watch. He decides the quantities

00:03:47--> 00:03:48


00:03:51--> 00:04:05

all that goes into the life right? Your relationship who and what and words on wealth, influence Power Authority. I make you the king of Morocco.

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

Right now what do you do with that?

00:04:12--> 00:04:19

What kind of king will you use that King shape of Morocco to get you Jana or Jana up to you more than possible

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

this is the nature of it

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

now the game that shutdown plays is he flips this

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

so look at them in this game what should you be concerned about?

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

The what are the how which

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

now obviously with that what is not in your control? What is not in your control how is in your control? The marriage is not in your control how to make that marriage good or bad is in your control the lifespan is not in your control how to make that life good or bad is in your control. Well amount of wealth is not in your

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

Rule one saying that well how will I variable I earn it from where will I spend it this is my control

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

we need to focus now what shattered does is shatta and removes your focus he flips it he says nobody will always get money

00:05:16--> 00:05:17


00:05:19--> 00:05:21

right get money anyway

00:05:22--> 00:05:26

why wait for getting married and this and that and proposal and

00:05:27--> 00:05:34

you are young you're healthy you have God desires and so on The World Is Yours man and people are willing to come and fall at your feet go ahead

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

you don't remain young all your life so

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

write it what do you want drink? What do you want? So Allah is not halal done Thai Kabbalah whatever it is America

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

No, this is this is whatever.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

And then you've done before on us via now whatever's

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

right. So focus on what is in your control.

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

Don't worry about what's not in your control and defy and decide which is in control which is not in control. How do you decide that? By looking at the questions of the day of judgment?

00:06:22--> 00:06:32

What will you be questioned about Allah subhanaw taala Well Adam, Allah is the just Allah will not question you about something that he did not give you control of

00:06:34--> 00:06:35


00:06:38--> 00:06:45

so what is not in your control? Don't worry about it. Question Allah will ask the question about thing which he gave you in your control.

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

He won't say how long did you live is how did you live?

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

What did you do with that life? That time?

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

Right. I love it not so how long was your youth period?

00:07:01--> 00:07:06

of eight years old? I still I think I'm 20 No, no? Actual youth? How long?

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

He won't ask you that you that Allah Allah gave you that.

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

Why? Why is he Why could you not lift 300 pounds? No

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

How did you spend that youth What did you do in that is

00:07:24--> 00:07:35

Allah will not ask why did you not make a million dollars? Allah will ask where did you earn it from? How did you make that money? Where do you spend that money?

00:07:38--> 00:07:48

In Islam both are important. You can't say well you know am I earning don't don't ask about that that that's but I'm giving every year I give $100,000 to the masjid

00:07:50--> 00:08:03

then give $100 million to the masjid if you're earning is haram that 100 million dollars for the masjid is Gize because the magician is getting they're getting it as a gift they will use it but you will get punished for that

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

not punished for giving to the masjid but punished for earning it haram

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

and give it to the budget does not cancel out that haram

00:08:14--> 00:08:17

I think when people keep asking me because I saw you emptying

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

the issue of Zambia

00:08:22--> 00:08:26

see let me I don't know why this is so complex complicated for such a simple thing.

00:08:27--> 00:08:32

In Islam, what is it that makes meat halal?

00:08:33--> 00:08:40

Zambia does not does not apply to tomatoes and carrots right oh that's okay. Sick as you can it gets into the

00:08:42--> 00:08:42


00:08:44--> 00:08:54

and inmates again not fish so it's birds or animals so what is it that makes meat Hala number one what mediated

00:08:56--> 00:09:04

because if it is poor for example which pig is nothing there's going to be you know you can do whatever you like right It's haram crocodile haram

00:09:05--> 00:09:09

right if we look at it in crocodile sticks there you gotta get the vaccines out every

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


00:09:14--> 00:09:19

Eagles crows Hara donkey Hara.

00:09:20--> 00:09:33

So first rendition is the thing in itself, Phenom II should be hunted so that animal or bird by itself should be something which is permitted to eat.

00:09:34--> 00:09:41

So now you got chicken you got you know turkeys, you got B if you got butter and so on. Now what

00:09:43--> 00:09:48

now the way it was killed the way it was slaughtered. This is called Zambia

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

which means that with a sharp knife the knife should be passed

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

on the throat of the animal. Please understand this table says RBI means it should

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

would be bled completely you know what is the fastest way of bleeding an animal completely is to stab it in the heart.

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

That's it

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

it will cover like a bump

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

is it Hara it's harm.

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

You just have

00:10:23--> 00:10:28

the knife must cut the throat, not any other part of the body, the throat

00:10:29--> 00:10:35

and it must sever the jugular vein, the esophagus and the carotid arteries this from here to here.

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

And the buzzer must say Bismillah Bismillah, Allahu Akbar

00:10:41--> 00:10:54

that difference of opinion on that sometimes some people say Bismillah as a perceiver if he does not say visualize a Muslim is doing that. So, the end of the day, this is the method This method makes it Halon

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

you if the animal is killed in any other way it is haram.

00:11:01--> 00:11:04

It is like eating pork. No difference that is haram This is

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

now, two questions people ask.

00:11:10--> 00:11:26

They take the code the Hadees is a people came up they brought some meat and they said jasola this meat was given to us by these people who recently became Muslim. We are not sure how they how they slaughtered, what can we do to ourselves that service will lie in it.

00:11:27--> 00:11:45

What are we talking about here? You're talking about meat which was slaughtered by Muslims. But the people who got it they said we are not very sure how they did that they are new Muslims. And you know, now how did they normally slaughter meeting Arabia? By cutting the sword?

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

Were there any meat factories in the seventh century?

00:11:52--> 00:11:53


00:11:54--> 00:12:06

So the issue is Max. We are not sure did they say Bismillah Allahu Akbar or nada? what President Obama said was belaid did he say bsabs? Will I need any meat?

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

I found that I find a roadkill and I bring it here as a service well I need

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

you know why waste a rabbit?

00:12:18--> 00:12:29

So this is one question series related. Second question that people ask is, Allah in the Quran as well as in the food of the people of the book is halal for you. So you heard oneness,

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

Christians and Jews. Now what does that mean?

00:12:34--> 00:12:48

All the all of them as they have said it means that if it is a practicing Jew or Christian, who then slaughters in the way that they slaughter meaning again cutting the throat

00:12:49--> 00:12:58

and the Jews actually say what amounts to Bismillah Allahu Akbar they actually say that they save in the name of Almighty God who is the creator of everything

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

that is how you can read that.

00:13:05--> 00:13:09

Again, this is an exception if you are so desperate and you're gonna die or something you know you can read it.

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

Where is the mention of machines piston?

00:13:16--> 00:13:21

Which had is which is of the Quran? Where is the question of machines?

00:13:22--> 00:13:27

Today we are not talking about the slaughter of the Jews and the Christians we're talking about slaughter by a machine.

00:13:29--> 00:13:46

Now May Allah forgive these people who are in this room and Muslims being murdered by Muslim Allah may Allah forgive them and May Allah save us from people like that? Somebody gave a fatwa say put a tape and the tape is going to go on saying Bismillah Allahu Allah and you can your machine can run and everything is hard.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

How can it be how do you where do you get this wrong?

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

This is complete garbage

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

total garbage

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

in another place so you right Bismillah on the knife

00:14:04--> 00:14:26

let me ask you a simple question. Somebody comes to me and says I'm a new Muslim I don't know what to do i But I need to slaughter What shall I do? Supposing I take or give me a marker right? Here's an I am going to write Bismillah now use this knife What can you tell us a * what kind of scam are you running? I mean what what is this game you're playing you give you write some BS we love this knife and give it to the guy and this is Hello. How's it so how's your factory shot haha

00:14:31--> 00:14:45

I've sent you guys the link to that watch that video you saw us all the videos in the musculature. When the chickens go some chicken gets cut halfway. Some chickens gets cut in the neck some chicken get some somewhere else and

00:14:50--> 00:14:53

please do not destroy your own

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

because the Hadees also Salam is very clear.

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

One of the few Hadith mentioned by Abubakar Cydia robiola very few are here he did not quote too many Hadees very few are this but you can imagine the Hadith or the Allah know what is superior to that

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

He said He said my friend said who is when

00:15:18--> 00:15:19


00:15:20--> 00:15:22

Allah said Sahibi

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

Phil Hara

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

he said my friend said

00:15:32--> 00:15:45

if one morsel one piece of haram goes into your mouth and you swallow it and it becomes die it gets digested becomes part of the body then the fire of Jahannam is wajib on that body

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

that sequence is worth that man

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

you love chicken so much you're willing to burn in the fire for a chicken

00:15:56--> 00:16:02

Oh, seriously a bit you know I'm not I know you don't but obviously people are because tell these people this thing.

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

What kind of what kind of enslavement of the brain is this for God's sake?

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

And I'm not saying don't do anything eat it. Check and eat the right thing.

00:16:15--> 00:16:28

Eat chickens until you start laying eggs so as far as I'm concerned what do I care you know eat eat chicken morning day and night eat chicken 24 hours a day till you grow feathers or start laying eggs or whatever just start throwing the money

00:16:31--> 00:16:37

right but what without checking machines please don't do this

00:16:38--> 00:16:39


00:16:40--> 00:16:42

do not destroy your akhira

00:16:44--> 00:16:48

I don't know about you since the advisor the word did do I have nothing

00:16:50--> 00:16:55

I have nothing that nothing you want me to lose? No No way

00:16:58--> 00:17:03

I will not eat anything which I'm not sure about I don't care who use it

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

I don't get who's offended

00:17:10--> 00:17:25

if I'm not sure I will not as simple as that. And that is what I'm advising you please verify if you're not sure don't touch it. Ask anywhere you want if you feel embarrassed about asking notice not each that's it

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

it's on the

00:17:29--> 00:17:37

audit at all. What is what is one meal you miss? I mean all of us can miss many meals there is no at least I mean if I don't eat for a week I'm fine.

00:17:38--> 00:17:42

You'd fish eat X plenty of options

00:17:47--> 00:17:52

let us focus on what is in our control. What's in our control is these things

00:17:53--> 00:17:58

and this is so serious and so important. A bother goes in what's left tell me

00:18:01--> 00:18:07
