blended together, and we can live a good life. Okay? Okay. necessity for the sister, your evidence you get from your family salon. Is this a valid reason to say you know what, okay there is evidence that says that we can say I want my daughter to marry in Egypt, for example, well let me say something first and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala Susan Susan Hydrox, which is chapter 49 of the Quran verse number 13. It says, Yeah, you

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

can also control but it's also an economic model.

00:00:27--> 00:01:03

Oh, human kanji have created you from a man and a woman that will made you into tribes and nations that you may get to know one another. And the best of you are those who must God conscious. So from that perspective, and other verses of the Quran to Romans with Fatima and other places, it's very clear that a Lost Planet Allah has differentiated us in terms of cultures and traditions and languages and cultures, in order that we may adventure into each other. So get to know one another and have a human experience, so to speak. So this is one point. So from that angle, Allah subhanaw taala has made the differences within human beings, natural differences, which we can use to further

00:01:03--> 00:01:33

our own intellectual capacities. That's point one. So I wouldn't say that culture is a bad thing. I will say that the culture which goes against Islam is, from our perspective, something which is not acceptable. Right. So that's the first The second thing is as relates a sister what she said before, where she was asked, Would you let your son or daughter get married to, to someone from someone else shouldn't be asked this question, because with due respect, she has no right to stop marriage. She's a mother, and the mother has no right. And let me just finish. So a mother.

00:01:34--> 00:02:11

A mother has no right in Islam to in a village man. Yeah, okay. All mother had to stop a marriage. So so it's not a counter question I'm asking. So what is the rights of the individual whose parents stopping them? So the point is, I mean, you can have preferences. It's not bad to have a cultural preference. I'm not saying that we should all now be completely open minded and say, Okay, we have to marry from, you know, someone else's cost or someone else's race or someone's religion, even in the case of men compared using Christians. We're not saying that, but we are saying is that at the end of the day, there has to be this the gentlelady from New Hampshire, solemn talks about when he

00:02:11--> 00:02:51

talks about the problem of tribalism, and even racism because this can be expanded and extended to racism, that has to be eliminated from the hearts of human human Muslims. That's the first thing the second thing is people need to know where they stand in terms of abilities and non abilities. A father could very well say for example, as let's say an Arab father, he could say look, I want for my daughter, someone who could speak Arabic, and that might necessitate that the person is an Arab, however, even he has his limitations. And that's something which on a case by case basis must be investigated by the by the by Imams, etc. So I want to give one a one size fits all policy. Yeah.

00:02:51--> 00:03:27

However, like for example, if a son wants to get married, and the mother says no, you have to marry say, Somali and African, he can say look, I'm not going to do what you say and and he can practically get married without permission. Okay, you know, you know what this this topic should carry on, but we've got limited time we're gonna have to finish. However, I think maybe on a future episode we can discuss the topic of in a circumstance where the parent is saying maybe no to a laptop or a whiteboard, or whatever it may be or a sister. What is the rights of the child so I think that'd be a good topic to discuss on the show today. That's a bit from that's about it from

00:03:27--> 00:03:41

us. I want to thank my guests devil's advocate, thank you very much pelicula fee for the Mussa and every single one of you guys. That's about it from us brothers and sisters. Hope you guys have benefited inshallah, tonight next time for me and talk to me show assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
