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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala shuffelin beaver mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just even Gosselin casita are mavado brothers sisters an absolutely beautiful day and it's very sunny

00:00:22--> 00:00:31

so as I told you I think I mentioned before my glasses have become dark I don't like to talk from behind our glasses but there's no alt there's no option here

00:00:33--> 00:00:43

I don't know if you can see and whether this camera is good enough to catch it but behind me there are a couple of bird feeders and there are some absolutely beautiful birds

00:00:44--> 00:00:49

which come and go as we as we will talk inshallah you will see them

00:00:51--> 00:01:02

and I hope you get to see that I think I hope if I'm as I'm sitting quite still, I don't think sound bothers them. I hope they will come back to the fetus. So, you can also see the birds

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

my brother sisters I

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

I want to talk to you today about these hobbies

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

which is

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

narrated

00:01:18--> 00:01:23

by Norman Bashir rhodiola who and it since a Muslim

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

where Rasul Allah He

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

He

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

made some things very clear.

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

He said in in Valhalla been in Al haram obey. Obey Noma, Mousavi heart,

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

la Yala Mohan Yamanaka zero meanness.

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

Now,

00:01:58--> 00:02:07

the meaning of which is no one being Machito there are no said I heard him say and he, he said he pointed to 06 I heard him say

00:02:09--> 00:02:23

what is lawful is clear what is halal is clear, what is unlawful or Haram is clear. And between the two are doubtful things which many people do not know.

00:02:24--> 00:02:32

So, he, the one who guards against the doubtful things, keeps his religion an honor.

00:02:33--> 00:03:15

blameless and he who indulges in doubtful things, indulges, in fact in unlawful things, just as a shepherd who pastures his animals around a preserve of a king will soon pasture them in the king in the preserve, be where every king has preserved him. And Allah Zima are those things that he made hora B where in the body, there is a piece of flesh, if it is sound, the whole body is sound, and if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. And there is racetam said indeed, that is the heart.

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

My brothers sisters,

00:03:20--> 00:03:34

this beautiful Hadees Rasul Allah says Allah mentioned the basic principle of this Deen which is to be careful with regard to the boundaries of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

Now,

00:03:37--> 00:03:44

as he said, may Allah protect us today, we even indulge in halaal in hora

00:03:46--> 00:04:33

de la solemn wasn't expecting that from Muslims. So, he said the halaal is clear, the RM is clear meaning that what is permissible, it is clear. So, you will do that what is not permissible is also clear. So, you will not do that. And he said, however, between these two things, there are doubtful matters. Now, these doubtful matters, if you think about that, they all relate to our desires, right? Hello Haram is just a matter of you know the boundaries, but between them is question of desire. So what are what desires? For example, I want to drink something which has a secret formula in it. I want to drink something where I do not know the ingredients. So it's adopted matter. Can

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

somebody say with complete certainty that this thing is haram is haram? No.

00:04:38--> 00:04:45

But can they say with complete certainty that it is Allah? No. So it comes in between? It is one of the

00:04:47--> 00:04:50

one of the most obvious it's one of the things which are

00:04:51--> 00:04:54

which are doubtful. Now, what must you do?

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

Think about that. What must you do

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

saying that if you

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

still insist on eating or drinking that then you are really indulging in Haram. Because

00:05:08--> 00:05:35

if you are drinking or eating something which has which way you don't know the ingredients, in effect, what are you saying? In effect, you are saying that even if there is something Haram in it, I don't care, right? Because I need to drink that I want to drink that. It's something that I like. And even if there is something Haram in it, I don't care. So now that attitude of yours is what is the real harm?

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

Take for example, Coke and Pepsi, right?

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

Do they have a secret formula in them? Do you know what the ingredients are? It's a strange situation, because everything that is

00:05:50--> 00:05:58

that is created for human consumption. By law, they are supposed to print the ingredients on the labels,

00:05:59--> 00:06:14

except these things. Nobody tells them that nobody forces them to print the ingredients on the labels. And you can look and write to them, you can ask them, what are the ingredients they will tell you say they will tell you that there is something in it, which is a proprietary

00:06:15--> 00:06:37

thing, and therefore, we are not at liberty to divulge that and we will not tell you. Now that's fine. Let them let them by all means let them make it let them have their secret formula formula. We're not interested. We're not asking for the formula in order to create another drink as a competition for them. We are just saying as Muslims, and you're saying to you as a Muslim, if you don't know what is in something,

00:06:39--> 00:06:57

and you are still drinking that. If you don't know what is in something and you're still eating that. Then what does that say about your seriousness about Allah, your seriousness about Allah, your seriousness, Allah Salah, and your seriousness about Islam.

00:06:59--> 00:06:59

That is why

00:07:01--> 00:07:12

somebody who indulges in doubtful things is actually indulging in Haram. He said, The one who does not indulge in doubtful things, has preserved his religion and has preserved his honor.

00:07:14--> 00:07:45

He gave a beautiful example, where he said that his Shepherd, who is grazing his flock was grazing his sheep. If he grazes them too close to the boundary of the king, then there is a very good chance that one or more of those sheeps sheep and goats will cross the boundary and start eating from the king's land. And then who gets into trouble not the goat, the shepherd. Right. So we are saying

00:07:46--> 00:08:20

is saying here, that who is a wise Shepherd who's sensible person who stays far away from that, who does not go near the king's land at all, stays far away, because he does not want to get himself into trouble with the king. He's just following and he said that what Allah has prohibited is Allah's boundary law Takara boo ha, do not go close to the boundary, not only should you not cross over the boundary safety lies in not even going near the boundary.

00:08:21--> 00:08:50

Now, just as I asked you to think about this and say that what do we do with there are two major areas in which we need to be very clear as far as these boundaries are concerned where the doubtful things are the maximum one is with regard to our food, and the second one is with regard to our earnings. Right? Now what is halal and what is haram? And if there are doubtful things, what must you do in that situation?

00:08:51--> 00:09:19

Simple question. A simple simple thing is if you are in a doubtful area, number one thing to do is stop doing that do not go in that doubtful area Stop it. Then if you are really so interested in what is in that particular thing, go and investigate find out go to people have knowledge, ask them. If they tell you that this is fine, you can do it then you can do it. If they don't tell you that if they tell you no it is wrong, then don't do it. And the best thing is if you have a doubt leave it

00:09:20--> 00:09:59

I gave you an example of Coke or Pepsi. Another big example in our lives is chicken because this is a It's a strange thing. Even when I was growing up chicken was a luxury. Right chicken was a luxury chicken was something that you slaughtered when you had some guests. So it was it was something which was special because they were in short supply. We didn't have commercial production of chickens and chickens were you know, there were all of them today. It's the other way around. If you want to buy a country bread, farm grown, free range chicken, you

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

More in when I was growing up as a child, we only had those kinds of chickens there was no other kind of chicken, these battery chickens which, which are literally manufactured, we didn't have the really we have the today that is the It is the largest, there are more chickens in the world than all other birds combined.

00:10:20--> 00:11:01

I'm not talking about domestic butter, but every bird more chickens than that, because of this commercial manufacturing. Now, what happens in a chicken to that is that the slaughter is also done in factories, and except where people have taken special care, I know one or two places in Bangladesh where they take special care and then maybe other places except those places that slaughter is not done by hand. It is not done by hand, it is not done by a necessarily by Muslim. They have all kinds of ways in which the slaughter is done. In most places, nothing is done, it's just slaughtered. In many cases, the head comes off. So the thing is, anyway, even if even without

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

that,

00:11:03--> 00:11:43

you know it would be it would be horrible. I actually went into a one of the chicken manufacturing factories and I saw the the entire process of manufacturing that we described for you. I've done this before, but let me let me explain it to you. What happens is the chickens at one end of this, it's an assembly line process. At one end of the assembly line, there is a conveyor belt which has funnels in it, that is a funnel, the funnels plastic funnels which are in that conveyor belt. So they take a chicken and they put it into the funnel, so the head of the chicken is sticking out of the tail of the funnel that the rest of the funnel holds the chicken so it can flap around, it's

00:11:43--> 00:11:58

like this. This comes here, here, there are three kinds of things that happen. One is there is a tape which is playing Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah Allahu Akbar Bismillah No, but there is a tape which is continuously playing that

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

here there is a knife there is a mechanical knife, which slits the neck of the chicken now before that, this is final it comes here. And then what happens is the first first step is not the first step is the chicken's head is dipped in a tub of water, which is electrified, that water has current in it, the head of the chicken goes into that and the chicken gets a knock on the head knock which knocks it out, which makes it unconscious. Now, once it comes out of that, that chicken is supposedly unconscious, but tell me Is there somebody checking to see if it is unconscious? Or if it is dead? No. So for all you know, some of those chickens are dead, some will be unconscious depends

00:12:47--> 00:13:03

on the you know, the mental structure mental health of the chicken and the the the cardiac health of the chicken and I don't see they're doing a cardiac profile at the end of that. So, anyway, first problem, which is that the chicken was

00:13:04--> 00:13:45

silent. And that itself is not permissible in our slaughter system to to stun the animal before before slaughtering it. So that is done. second problem there is that the stunning may have actually killed the animal. We don't know that once it comes in it comes to the slaughter part, the slaughter part of that there are three things three ways in which is the number one way there is a tape link, which will allow but and there is a mechanical life which goes Check, check, check, check and cuts. Now that again is supposed to cut the neck in such a way that it cuts the two characters or the juggler wins. And then the head must still be attached to the neck that is what is supposed to

00:13:45--> 00:13:52

happen. But a chicken's neck right it's not a buffaloes like she's chicken's neck. So in many cases

00:13:53--> 00:14:05

the head comes off because of the sharpness of the knife and because that that chicken came too close I wanted to happen that comes off. So second point at which the chicken actually becomes Haram.

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

second method is they right on the knife Bismillah he Allahabad May Allah subhanaw taala forgive those of those movies who have given these fatwas la hora hotel, so they write this will allow but and the knife cuts that's it period that now you decided that is helpful for you and you want to do it.

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

Third thing is where there are people standing there, and these people are supposed to say Bismillah Allahu Akbar and they have knives they are cutting. Now problem is the speed at which the conveyor moves because remember, any factory machinery is created for efficiency. You have a factory machinery which moves slow you have lower efficiency. So you want that thing to move as fast as possible so that your output per hour is as much

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

possible. That's how chicken factory chicken processing is also done same principles. So now you have this

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

factory machinery which is moving at a pretty rapid pace. So what they do to cater for that one of the things they do is

00:15:17--> 00:15:41

the person standing here slaughters every alternate chicken, the other one goes to the one the man standing next to him, right so it's every alternate chicken. Now if he misses, it's gone without without slaughtering. It's it's just turned and it's gone. If he doesn't miss he slaughters once again, whenever maybe cuts the head off, what happens, nothing happens. He just keeps quiet.

00:15:42--> 00:16:27

Even if he doesn't cut the head off, he's doing it now. That person is supposed to say Bismillah Allahu Akbar. But the rate at which this process this process is, believe me I have actually timed it is not possible for the person to say Bismillah Allah but unless that that process is slowed down, can it be done? Yes. But then your factory production takes a hit. That means that the owners of the factory must have enough taqwa to say, I don't care about lower production. I will take that hit, but I will ensure that every chicken is actually hand slaughtered properly. is this done? Yes. In very few cases, I know of two cases in Bangladesh, that's it, period. Other than that, I don't

00:16:27--> 00:17:15

know if they are they're all part of them. Alhamdulillah if they are not there, and the vast majority are not there, I can say that to very openly and clearly. So this happens. Also, please understand, those people standing there have to stand for eight hours. They can't take a break. They can't go even to the toilet. So they wear adult diapers. And if they got to go they go right where they are standing. Now here is a person with his diaper full of excreta cutting chicken saying Bismillah Allahu Akbar, watch the seeds of Allah Allah, Allah Allah. So therefore my principle I never eat factory process chicken period, and hamdulillah my life doesn't depend on it your life

00:17:15--> 00:17:39

doesn't depend on not depend on it either. So this is the meaning of being careful with what you put in your mouth. Right? rustlers are upset. This is a sign of your taqwa. It is a sign of your Eman And if you are not doing that, that also is a sign. So it's up to you which sign you want to show to Allah subhanaw taala geladeira my brothers sisters,

00:17:40--> 00:18:25

let me tell you a story. True Story About Garcinia Catalano. The reason I'm telling you the story about our burgers is because here was a man who learned the religion directly from Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Here was a man who was considered to be the chef of the Sahaba. The Sahaba referred to him if they had any doubt and in the sola, sola Salaam was not present. A woman came to meet a sorcerer Salah she came with a question and ameesha salon told her he was busy with something he told her come back tomorrow. She said if I come tomorrow and I find you are not here, what must I do? He said go to Abu Bakar she said if he is not here, what must I do? He said go to Allah

00:18:25--> 00:18:47

Salallahu alaihe salam O Allah azza wa jal Neverland sisters, what does that tell you? One thing on a side note, it tells you the hierarchy with the Sahaba it was based on these things that the xaba picked Abubakar said Do they allow and who as the halifa have also lights on I send them when the solar Susana passed away. Right now, this story refers to

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

the alano

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

What's the story? The story is one day our

00:18:55--> 00:19:03

return from somewhere he came home and he saw what was there he asked his son he said give me Do Is there anything to eat? And someone said yes.

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

He said Give it to me. The servant gave him a bowl of milk

00:19:09--> 00:19:26

Garcinia Delano drank the milk. The seven then said he has a the every time I give you something to eat or drink you always ask me about the origin of that. You asked me where did you get this wrong? Today? You didn't ask me?

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

Who said

00:19:29--> 00:19:37

when I am this careful. I expect you to also be careful. I didn't ask you because I assumed you're careful. Where did you get this from?

00:19:39--> 00:19:48

Your Man understand story. The man said before I became Muslim I used to be a soothsayer. I was an astrologer. I was a magician.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

There is a tribe which lives outside of Medina. I had done something for them for which they were supposed to pay me. Now they did not pay me at this time.

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

After that I became Muslim Alhamdulillah. And I stopped doing these things because these are Haram.

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

Today I was passing by there and those people gave me this milk as payment for what I had done for them before Islam listen carefully to the story.

00:20:19--> 00:20:26

So, he said, I took that I brought it I brought it home and you asked me for something to drink, I gave it to you, then I had a doubt in my mind. So I told you the story.

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

Now,

00:20:30--> 00:20:41

before I tell you what to do, Delano did, let me ask you some questions relating to the permissibility the flick of this right many of us who are very interested in the

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

first question, who did the male belong to? To the servant?

00:20:50--> 00:20:53

Make itself is it halal or haram? It is how does

00:20:54--> 00:21:02

it belonged to the server. So when the servant gave it over 64 delanco it was a gift from his Muslim brother.

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

Right. And the gift itself was Helen did

00:21:10--> 00:21:14

not even need to bother about where he got it from. No.

00:21:16--> 00:21:27

Because a gift from your brother, as long as that gift phenos e in itself is halal is halal for you.

00:21:28--> 00:21:45

Even if he got the gift from a haram source, that gift is that thing is haram for him. But for you it is valid. For example, if you have a friend who is engaged in an interest, he's paying or

00:21:47--> 00:22:05

paying or charging interest, and he is has this business. He runs an interest bearing interest based bank for example. And he so you know that that's that is his income he has he's got nothing else. Now he invites you home for a meal.

00:22:06--> 00:22:48

You can go and you can eat in his house, there is no problem because that meal as long as what he's giving you if he's poor feeding a pork then obviously is not allowed. But as long as he's giving you food which is halal, and you can eat even though that same food for him is haram because his his his source of earning is haram. But you as a Muslim brother of that person. You don't have to worry, do not even need not even be Muslim. Is it permissible for you to go and eat in the house of a non Muslim? Yes. Even though the non Muslim is worshiping somewhere other than Allah subhanaw taala long as what they are giving us right. So that's the first point the first point, milk is it helpful?

00:22:48--> 00:22:54

Yes. Would it belong to the servant for Delano to drink that milk? Was it permissible? Yes.

00:22:56--> 00:23:00

Second one, if you eat or drink something without knowledge

00:23:03--> 00:23:21

if you are fasting for example, and if you eat or drink something without remembering that you are fasting is your fast broker. No, it is not broken. The funny story is true story but it's also music. A man came to over the long end he said I have a question.

00:23:22--> 00:23:44

I asked him he said what's the question? He says My question is that I was fasting and I was also very hungry. So one day so today I went to this friend's house and he gave me food and I sat and ate the whole meal and after after eating the meal I remembered I was fasting so my vast Is it still valid or by wisma fast one

00:23:45--> 00:24:08

hour no problem fast is valid because you forgot you didn't you didn't know and what you forgot Allah does not hold you responsible for man's No no, no, no, he doesn't finish that. It was that he said you know after that this happened in the morning he said after that in the afternoon I went to visit somebody else and I was very hungry and they also gave me some food. So I had detals because I thought

00:24:10--> 00:24:19

now what our again You forgot and you made by mistake you didn't realize so inshallah your fastest Well, it is an hour it didn't end there.

00:24:20--> 00:24:51

So he said what he said, you know, again later on before if I went to somebody else's place, and I was hungry, and this this person also gave me food I had I had that also now my first visit Well, our other honors are laughing and he said you are not used to fasting. This is the funny story about this too. But this also proves that if you eat something without knowledge by mistake, then it does not nullify your fast. Abdullah Did you know

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

the origin of this milk? No. He would if he had known it was it was okay for him. But the point is that

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

He didn't even know that milk is hot. He drank the milk. So therefore was your fault. It was not your fault.

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

Before I tell you what he did, did

00:25:09--> 00:25:17

he know the Sharia better than you me? Did he know the muscle and the social effect better than me?

00:25:18--> 00:25:19

Or do you think you know a better ride or

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

what did you do?

00:25:23--> 00:25:35

What did you do? Alba Casa de la no started we put his hand his put his fingers in his in his throat and he started vomiting. He kept on vomiting until you brought up blood.

00:25:37--> 00:25:45

People stopped him and they said you will kill yourself. What are you doing? He said I have heard My Habib who is the Habib of

00:25:47--> 00:26:16

Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, I have heard My Habib say that anybody who eats or drinks something which is haram, a morsel of it's not a stomach full of a morsel of something which is haram. And if that thing goes inside his body and is digested and becomes a part of the body. Now we can also have said that the fire of jahannam is wajib on that body to purified.

00:26:18--> 00:26:19

My question to you is

00:26:20--> 00:26:27

those doubtful chickens that you eat that Coke and Pepsi that you drink? Is it worth going into the fire for that?

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

Is it

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

Do you love that thing so much?

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

And do love Allah Solis

00:26:37--> 00:26:43

This is the meaning of it yet this is the meaning of leaving doubtful things.

00:26:46--> 00:26:56

What about things which are not doubtful? For example, it is base earnings. I know I keep on saying the same thing again and again because that is a very, very major problem in our community.

00:26:58--> 00:27:15

It is my belief that this Coronavirus came because there are so many people in our community, including governments, including countries which have accepted a declaration of war from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

You know, and I know I'm not inventing this thing, this is the law.

00:27:21--> 00:27:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala declared war on his behalf and on behalf of sola sola, on people who deal with interests. What do you call countries, Muslim countries who call themselves Muslim countries who stand up as the exemplars of Islam in the world?

00:27:40--> 00:27:45

Who permit interest based banking and interest based banks in their countries?

00:27:47--> 00:28:23

Let those heads of state answer before they are called to account by Allah subhanaw taala. How do you permit interest based banking in your country, when you call yourself a Muslim? And when you call your country, a Muslim country, and you have all these you make this posturing about being the defenders of the faith? What faith are you defending? Some you are accepting a declaration of war from Allah subhanho wa Taala? Are you defending the faith? Are you damaging the faith? I ask all those Muslims who who take debt.

00:28:25--> 00:28:28

Today, we are dying under debt.

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

And

00:28:33--> 00:28:44

I want to say none of it. But I won't say none of it. The vast majority of that debt is only for to fulfill our desires, nothing else.

00:28:46--> 00:28:52

Nothing. That debt is not necessary that debt is not essential.

00:28:53--> 00:29:49

Now you might say well, you know, I took a mortgage. Because to have my own house, Who told you that to own a house to be the owner of a house Who told you that that is a necessity that your life cannot go on unless you own the house. All you need is a roof a secure roof over your head for which you can all you need is to rent a house. Save money, find alternate means where you can get interest free loans to Islamic banks. And then get yourself a house if you really want to get a house. But otherwise, there's absolutely nothing wrong. Not only is it not wrong, I think financially speaking it is even better to live in a rented house and write off that rent part of it all of it in expenses

00:29:49--> 00:29:56

against tax which you are permitted to permitted to do in most countries. Even if you can't live

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

with it.

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

Last one is bondage. You are do have accepted a declaration of war from Allah.

00:30:06--> 00:30:34

We take loans to buy television sets, we take loans to buy gadgets, we take loans to buy phones, we take loans to buy fancy cars, we take loans to buy, to buy houses, we take loans to go on cruises. We take loans to go on holidays, we take loans, we take educational loans, and then you say, Well, you know, education is not possible without taking a loan. absolutely false. Even in America.

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

There are alternatives. There are different means.

00:30:40--> 00:30:44

And you don't need to study in America, you can go and study in Canada, which is next door

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

where the cost of education is much, much, much less

00:30:51--> 00:30:54

health care and education are rackets in this country.

00:30:58--> 00:31:36

We are killing ourselves with loans. Remember Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did not use to read the janazah of somebody who died while still owing money. He used to ask, does this person this person who died? Did he owe money to anyone? And if they said yes, he would ask who is taking over that loan on his behalf. If the son or some relative or some friend said jasola I am taking over that loan on his behalf and I will pay it off. Then the sooner Sir salaamu read the journals are for that person. Otherwise, he would say you read the journals or for your brother and he would go away.

00:31:38--> 00:31:45

Later on, when there was when he had money, then he would take it on himself.

00:31:46--> 00:31:55

He would say I will pay the loan for this person. And then he would read read the gerasa and lead there's another for that person. What does it tell you about loans?

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

We happily borrow money.

00:32:00--> 00:32:01

What happens when you die?

00:32:03--> 00:32:08

That TV set is going to be around your neck. That car will be around your neck. You wander

00:32:10--> 00:32:11

stop borrowing.

00:32:13--> 00:32:17

Stop borrowing. Instead, save

00:32:21--> 00:32:31

live within your means. Don't indulge in things which are doubtful. Even worse, don't indulge in things which are Haram.

00:32:33--> 00:32:59

bordering on interest is haram haram Haram. Paying that interest is haram haram Haram. The Hazara salami said Allah has cursed the one who borrows the one who pays meaning he said the one who lends on interest, the one who borrows on interest, the one who witnesses that transaction, and the one who draws up that contract.

00:33:01--> 00:33:06

He said Allah Alaska's these four people, remember, think about this, the one who is lending.

00:33:09--> 00:33:30

The one who is borrowing on interest is borrowing to go and buy something. But what about the one who's bearing with us? He's either borrowing or lending. He's getting nothing out of this. He's just standing there as a witness to the time that he's not even saying, If this man does not pay, I will pay on his behalf. No, he's just saying I am witness that this thing happened.

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

There is another level that Allah cursed him also.

00:33:35--> 00:33:45

What about the guy who's drying up that contract? He's got a job. He's got a he's an employee of that bank. And that's the reason why working in such institutions is haram.

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

He's drying up the contract.

00:33:51--> 00:33:59

Alaska, and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned and you all know the ayat of Surah Baqarah. Allah said on the Day of Judgment,

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

the one who deals in Riba, the one who deals in interest will stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala. Like a person who has been beaten by shaitan and he is in sin.

00:34:13--> 00:34:15

And why? Because they say,

00:34:17--> 00:34:35

Alba, Miss Florida, they say that business is like interest. And then Allah subhanaw taala makes this fabulous statement in keeping with his glory and majesty. He said, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, wa Rahma Riba. Allah says Allah has made

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

business halaal and Allah has made Riba Haram.

00:34:43--> 00:34:51

May Allah forgive the translators of the Quran, who have translated Riba as usury because that is a false translation.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

Riba usury is high interest rate. Riba is interest rate even if it is point

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

0100 1% It is

00:35:05--> 00:35:13

my brother and sister I want to end with this basic fundamental principle of the Sharia as far as what is haram and what is haram is concerned.

00:35:15--> 00:35:37

This is what I am telling you is kindergarten stuff you should have learned this in kindergarten. Your parents should have taught you this mela forgive them if they didn't teach you. In Nigeria the basic principle is that if something is haram, then everything to do with it is haram. And that thing which is haram is haram irrespective of quantity.

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

Pork, is it haram? Yes. How much is haram? Everything is haram. one gram of pork is haram. The whole pig is

00:35:49--> 00:35:59

you can say you know I just ate one pork chop No. You can say I just did one rasher of bacon. No, you can't say I just ate one sausage. No.

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

everything to do with is haram and

00:36:04--> 00:36:07

King bags, pig skin belts.

00:36:08--> 00:36:13

pig skin is haram. You know, making a bag out of it haram

00:36:15--> 00:36:15

dealing

00:36:17--> 00:36:41

with pigs, having a pig farm owning a pig farm, trucking, transporting pigs from place to place having a slaughterhouse or a pig meat pork Processing Factory, having shares in a factory you might say I never even saw the fact they have never even gone near the factory. I just have some shares in that business. It is haram.

00:36:43--> 00:36:48

Zina is haram fornication is haram everything to do with one

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

fornicating one time is around fornicating every day is hella

00:36:55--> 00:37:20

but you know what? We have made some things halaal for ourselves. And we have made some things alarm for ourselves, not based on what Allah did. But based on what we like and we don't like we won't eat Paul because we don't like to eat pork anyway. We will not say fornication is one times okay because you don't want your wife to do that. You don't your wife doesn't want you to do that.

00:37:22--> 00:37:33

What our interest is banking, what about borrowing money? Just what about borrowing money to buy this gadget and that gadget and this car and that car this house and that house?

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

My brother and sister I don't make the laws.

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

You don't like the law tell about it. But as I told you,

00:37:44--> 00:38:03

it is my conviction of not making a fatwa It is my understanding that the Coronavirus is something which is brought on because Muslims refuse to stop dealing interest. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is at war with you. And Allah subhanho wa Taala sent his journey he sent his army

00:38:04--> 00:38:09

and his armies a little strand of RNA which is covered with lipids.

00:38:11--> 00:38:11

That's it.

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

And Allah brought you to your knees.

00:38:16--> 00:38:28

So I'm saying to all of you individually. I am saying to those who are in positions of authority, I'm saying I'm speaking also to the heads of states. Get out of interest based dealings.

00:38:30--> 00:38:49

Don't tell me it will cost you because now you have this loan and to pay it off. You will lose money lose the money. It is better than losing or even lose the money. It is better than losing your life to Corona. lose the money it is better than losing Jenna when you go before Allah subhanho wa Taala because remember, Allah told you, Allahu

00:38:50--> 00:39:00

Allah Allah, Allah said I am your Wali. So, what is the base condition? What is the default set? You are the Wali of Allah?

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

Allah, Allah.

00:39:03--> 00:39:10

Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

Allah Xena

00:39:14--> 00:39:38

taco, Allah said, verily, the owner of Allah are those who have no fear and who have no husband, no sadness. Who are they? They are the people who have a man and who have Taqwa. The default condition for you and me is that we insha Allah are the Olia of Allah, and that Allah subhanaw taala himself said, I am your wedding.

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

This is our default state. But some of us May Allah forgive us. But some of us said no, no, sorry. We don't want you as our worldly we want to as your as our enemy. So we have accepted the question of war from you. So I am rubbing out my name from the list of alia Allah and I'm writing my name in the

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

List of other law are enemies of Allah.

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

Does it make sense?

00:40:08--> 00:40:27

All of you like to talk about logic? Does it make sense? If it doesn't make sense about that name from the list of enemies of Allah and write it back again Allah has given the pen in your hand write it back again in the list of Allah Allah. Then raise your hand and say Yara

Moeller shield Kareem because you accepted a declaration of war. I didn't make up this story. Mahatma sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam told us this is what will happen to the person who dies by having borrowed money or having lent money on interest.

The Malaika will give a sword in his head and he will they will say go fight your enemy who is your enemy horrible martial curry.
