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

Allahumma eliminare Mahan Femina.

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

along my phone interview Marilyn Turner along mosey dinner.

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

We begin by thinking and praising Allah

00:00:23 --> 00:00:27

and we ask him to shower Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with compliments and salutations.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:39

We ask Allah to teach us that which benefits us. And we ask Allah to benefit allow us to benefit from what he has taught us. And we ask Allah to increase us in beneficial knowledge

00:00:40 --> 00:00:41

as to what follows.

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

And more.

00:00:50 --> 00:01:05

Welcome to all of you. For part five of our reading from the book of Shema, l mohammedia. Which is a book for those that might be joining or viewing for the first time.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:20

It is a book written by the scholar of Hadith Imam activity. In it he compiled narrations organize them into chapters that describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam descriptive narrations

00:01:22 --> 00:01:29

last month, and we have this the first Friday of every month. Last month we went over a few chapters.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:40

We talked about the socks of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we talked about his sandals his footwear.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:48

We also spoke about his ring and how he would wear rings at different times of his life.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:59

We spoke a little bit about rings and the rulings and some issues pertaining to them. And we talked about the description of his sword and the description of his

00:02:00 --> 00:02:10

shield or body armor. And we also talked about his helmet or they have salatu wa sallam. So today in sha Allah with Ida we will be continuing

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

chapter 17 from the book,

00:02:15 --> 00:02:19

which is Babel magic, mammoth your Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:20 --> 00:02:59

The chapter that discusses the narrations relating to the moment the turban of the prophets of Allah it was Salaam. And the next chapter after that in sha Allah, if Allah grants us success, Chapter 18. Babel medjet. Obviously 15 is Addy Allah Sudhi, la historia lahardee with the chapter that mentions the description of the prophesized items, lower garment. And with that, we would have completed the section or the group of chapters that describe things that the prophet SAW said and wore, clothing, accessories, things that he wore on a regular basis, things that he wore on the battlefield, etc.

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

And then the next section after that describes mannerisms and movements. So we have the chapter after that, that talks about how he walked, how he sat, how he leaned, etc. And so we'll group all of those together in sha Allah who to botica with data, so only two chapters that we hope to accomplish tonight, and they're relatively short, in Charlottetown. So let's begin with chapter 17.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:37

Before we get into the actual reading of the chapter, something we've mentioned before, and it's good to mention again, that these

00:03:38 --> 00:04:03

careful descriptions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, highlight to us how much the Sahaba cared, and were passionate about the prophets of Allah how to send them. I mean, the very fact that we have this information available and accessible to us and passed down to us, is a sign and a proof of how much the companions loved that also the law and how attentive and

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

focused they work with every detail of his life.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:55

There is no other human being whose life has been preserved and minute details of their life has been documented and related for centuries. No other one else has been treated with such passion and with such diligence, and that is because they'll still have a loved little sort of La hiss of aloha to send them so much. As someone might ask, what's the benefit of going through these details? What's the benefit of knowing the profit, loss of limbs, socks and his ring and what benefit is there? And we said before, and we'll say it again, anything that is related to the profits little longer it was in any way is beneficial for us to know. And the most obvious benefit is that it

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

increases in our awareness of this individual and the more you know,

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

Someone, the more you will be attached, the more you will love this person. And we are encouraged and taught to love Rasulullah his alarm system that's part of our religion. If we say that this messenger was sent to be our guide, and to lead us and guide us to live the best possible life, then very simply, we should know as many details as we can learn about this messenger. And it is Salatu was Salam. So just to make sure that we're in the right mindset, and all on the same page in sha Allah, so chapter 17 Imam hated me. He says, Babu magia fet momenteel Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the chapter that discusses what has been related about the magma. And the word EMA in

00:05:47 --> 00:05:54

Arabic refers to a turban. What is a turban? I think everybody knows what a turban is.

00:05:56 --> 00:06:01

That which is worn on the head. it's it's a it's a headgear, if you will head dress.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:07

And it is still worn in many cultures until today, in many cultures in in

00:06:10 --> 00:06:12

West, and north and east Africa,

00:06:13 --> 00:06:17

and many parts of the Middle East and many parts of the subcontinent.

00:06:19 --> 00:06:28

And even in Turkey, and many places in Southeast Asia, they still have different variations. Of course, they don't all look the same, but that's fine. of the turban.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:55

So, it comes from the word that refers to something being looped, or tied around, because the nature of a turban is that it is wrapped around the head. So some people they have a sort of scarf, if you will, that is draped over the head. Some cultures wear that. That's not an Amana. It similar to it. But by definition, it is not a not it's not a man.

00:06:57 --> 00:07:05

Also, amendment is something that the prophet SAW Selim wore, and it was common for people at his time for men at his time to wear their Amen.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:27

It was part of the culture, that's how people dressed. Not only was it part of the culture, but actually it has a very functional purpose. And until today, you'll find people wearing turbans in many cultures, again, for functional reasons. So you will find that it's very common in places that have a hot climate.

00:07:29 --> 00:07:37

Is that right? You find places where the climate is very hot, people wear turbans. Now, from our perspective, we come from a culture.

00:07:38 --> 00:07:43

The irony is amazing, we come from a culture where when the temperature goes up, people shed clothes.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:50

And then you find other people for centuries, that live in very hot climates, and they're wearing more.

00:07:52 --> 00:08:34

So that's really interesting. And why is that? Well, they didn't really know much about modern science, but they knew that you have to protect yourself from the sun and from the heat. And now people shed clothing exposed themselves to heat and the sun. And now people have a very prevalent all kinds of skin diseases and disorders due to exposure, and now everyone's talking about Don't be in the sun too long. If you're going to be in the sun, make sure you wear sunscreen, and cover wear this UV protection, which out of Asia, you know, left right mumbo jumbo. The idea is folks have been figuring this system out from a very long time ago, in places that are so called quote unquote,

00:08:34 --> 00:08:50

backwards. Really, how backwards is that? So I think we need to be very fair, and and give credit where credit is due. So a lot of a lot of Eastern cultures, they really got it figured out, you know, in many in many ways. I know a lot of people like having

00:08:52 --> 00:09:35

sort of conversations where they might mention a lot of problems and blameworthy aspects. No culture is perfect. Everybody has their good qualities and their bad qualities. But I think we should be fair, we should be fair and balanced. Just like we like to criticize and call out what is wrong. Let us give credit where credit is due. How did we end up there? The memo was part of their culture, but it also was functional. And the prophets I sent them lived where he lived in Mecca and Medina. And those places are hot for most of the year. And there are no major big forests over there, you're going to be exposed to the sun a lot. And so it was very logical and wise to wear a turban and to

00:09:35 --> 00:09:46

cover one's head. And even sometimes one's face and neck. Late. Let's read these narrations in Arabic. It's always nice to hear them in their original

00:09:49 --> 00:09:52

language, and then we'll mention some translation.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

But you got to remember to me the Babel magic, if you remember it Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for those four

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

have their own copies where again chapter 17 narration number 114 got a definite Mohammed who shall are at the center of the run of Normandy and Hammadi varicella muttahida.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:19

Ilan are at the center where Kiran and Hamad bin Isa Rama and Abby zubaid and j Baron Robbie Allahu taala and

00:10:21 --> 00:10:38

the hidden abuse on the Maharani He will send him a Makita yo metal factory where I lay here at the moment when soda is first Hadeeth is narrated to us on the authority of the companion jab, and jab it says the Prophet sallallahu wasallam entered Mecca on the day of

00:10:40 --> 00:10:55

when when there was the conquest of Mecca when Mecca was opened, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam entered Mecca with a huge envoy of the Sahaba and the entire community of Mecca, then submitted and entered into Islam.

00:10:56 --> 00:11:07

So that was a very special date. And it was the in the eighth fear after hyjal Ah, it was in the eighth year after the prophet SAW cinemas migration from Mecca to Medina.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:21

So jabbok says the Prophet entered on that day. During that event, he entered Mecca, and he was wearing a malama tune so that he was wearing a black colored turban. He was wearing a black colored turban.

00:11:23 --> 00:11:33

The next narration 115 potterhead escena abbiamo are at the center soufiane and Musa winning an award walk and Jeffrey Dahmer have no choice and a B he

Why are they here, Mr. Mattoon, so that this narration is on the authority of life. And he says, I saw the prophet SAW Selim giving up on the member on the pulpit. He rose to the member and he's giving a quote by he's addressing the community. And he was wearing a man Mattoon so that he was wearing a black colored turban

00:12:03 --> 00:12:43

had done as you can see there is some repetition in terms of the information between the narrations. So the mandated media is collecting for you the narrations that refer to this topic. HUD doesn't even have the land we use of an ISA on her death in our caribou. So I'll walk and Jennifer and Abby and nmbs along with cinema hottub and NASA at the moment and so that but I had doesn't have to tell him Danny Abu Mohammed Al Madani and Abdullah zcp, Mohammed Abdullah, Omar an affair and even your Omar al Qaeda and abuse all along it was either a trauma center, Mr. Mehta who bainer Katie Fey, okay.

00:12:44 --> 00:13:17

In this narration on the authority of Ebner Mo, the son of Remo club, he describes he says, The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, when he would wear a turban, he would leave a portion of it hanging downwards between his shoulders, they call this the veil of the of the Imam of the tail, if you will, of the of the turban because turbans are worn in different ways. Until today, by the way, there are some cultures where a turban is tied and no part of it dangles. And you find that very common in in,

00:13:19 --> 00:13:41

in much of North Africa and Egypt and Turkey, in many places like that, they will wear a turban. So something is wrapped around the head, but there is no part of it that is dangling. But then there is another style, if you will of wearing a turban, where a part of it is dangling down and sometimes two tails. Sometimes two parts of it will be dangling down.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:54

So this narration describes the prophecy I said I'm wearing a turban and the tail part of it was dangling down on his back between his shoulders and his Salatu was Salam.

00:13:55 --> 00:14:18

What kind of neural model if I do that IQ gotta obey the law, but I am assuming Mohammed was sediment Yes, any valic so a Brahma used to wear his turban in that way to be similar to the prophets that are send them in the way that he wore his turban. The last hadith of this chapter, but I had this and I use it as a call center Waiakea whoosh Raman wahoo madruga seal,

00:14:19 --> 00:14:25

and a crema add a bass and an ABS of a lowrider cinema. hapa. Vanessa, where are they here? So between this map

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

in this narration,

00:14:29 --> 00:14:57

even a bass narrates that the prophet SAW Selim gave hoba and he was wearing a saw baton desna and Saba is another word for it. Remember, this map means so that black, so he was wearing a black colored turban. And by the way, this narration is describing the last half of the prophesize lm. The last hotel that the prophet SAW Selim gave before he passed away at his Salatu was Salam

00:15:00 --> 00:15:21

A quick note for those that are reading along. In this narration we have someone by the name of Abdullah amount of rules I see. This person Allah has seen for those that happen to read a certain need in Arabic. Maybe someone is watching and they might be interested. Vasil is not a name of any person, but it's actually a nickname referring to the Sahabi hamdulillah.

00:15:23 --> 00:15:26

humbled I was given a nickname The one who is washed.

00:15:27 --> 00:15:50

Why hamdulillah was killed in the Battle of boyhood, and he was in the state of Genova. He was in a state of ritual impurity. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the companions the angels are giving him a listen, the angels are watching him. So they give him this nickname. Alessi will love that. And that's a nice interesting thing to know about this.

00:15:52 --> 00:16:37

So we here we have five narrations in this chapter, that describe the prophet SAW Selim delivering a sermon wearing a black colored turban. And Omar describes that he was wearing a black colored turban with a tail. And even our best describes that he gave us hope by wearing a black colored turban. From these narrations and others, we see clearly that the prophet SAW Selim owned and wore many turbans, and that was a regular part of his attire. He didn't always wear a turban. But much of the time, the prophecy lesson would be seen wearing a turban, especially when he was giving kotoba when he was giving a sermon, because these narrations describe him wearing a black colored turban when he

00:16:37 --> 00:16:38

was giving Halima.

00:16:42 --> 00:17:24

We learned that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam on multiple occasions hit the color of his turban is described as a black light. There is another narration that is not in this collection. And it actually is a weak narration in terms of the authenticity of the narrator's that describes the Prophet sallallahu sallam, or rather, let me put it this way, there is a belief that is that the processes are more a yellow colored turban, a metal sofa, or yellowish, you know, maybe like cream colored or something like that. And in fact, when the scholars dissected the narrations describing this, they came to the conclusion that the prophesised alum didn't himself wear it. But actually he

00:17:24 --> 00:18:02

praised one of the other Sahaba, who was wearing it, because he this Sahabi was wearing this colored turban on the day of better, the Battle of better and the prophets. I said him said, the angels in better are wearing a turban of the same color. And so when they dissected that they said the Prophet praised it, but we have no indication that he either his salatu salam wore a turban of that color. Did the prophet SAW Selim wear a turban of other colors? Well, in fact, from an academic perspective, we don't have any narrations that described to us him wearing turbans of other colors. How about white?

00:18:04 --> 00:18:16

How about Wait, we actually do not have any narrations that specifically indicate that the process alum wore a white German, which is interesting, but actually one of the scholars in Moodle shade.

00:18:17 --> 00:19:02

He said, Hello, I said I'm Lisa amendment and a lot mathy. He needs lucid bio. We don't have any specific narration that described the puffs lesson I'm wearing a white colored turban. However, however, we do have a general narration where the prophet SAW Selim was described as loving to wear white, that he loved to wear white colored clothing. And we have narrations where the profit encouraged to wear white he liked to wear the white color. That does not mean that you cannot or it's wrong to wear other colors just means that this was something relevant to the process. I mean, he encouraged it, and that's fine, that's good. But we don't have any narration that explicitly

00:19:02 --> 00:19:17

states authentically that the process I sent him himself wore a white colored turban but generally speaking we have him loving the the white color and loving to wear clothing of white color. Will Lahu tada lm

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

ignore am describes

00:19:24 --> 00:19:41

the size of the Imam as a chairman of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said it was neither very large where it stuck out a lot. Nor was it very small where it was just wrapped around his head but it was medium in size.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:44

As for the length of the turban

00:19:46 --> 00:19:58

some of the alumni they made some estimations they use some narrations that describe the length of his turban to me from seven to nine Vilar

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

in length

00:20:00 --> 00:20:35

And there are is an arm's length, an arm's length, not arm span, but an arm's length villa. Now there is some weakness in these narrations. So we don't have anything definite. That gives us a definite idea. But this is a general estimation that some of the odema came to some of the scholars, they actually tried to measure it. And they said it was like three to four meters along what law who to admire them? Again, we don't have anything concrete. But this is some suggested scholarly efforts to kind of estimate what was the length of the turban of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:20:38 --> 00:21:20

So we know that the process of them would make the loose end into a tail and it would be in his, on his back, some of the scholars they spoke about the length of that tail and they said it is disliked for it to be very long, where it goes lower than the back. And some of the scholars, they said that the to keep a turban on the tail on the turban, you should wrap it around your neck, which is very common in many places where they wear a turban, especially in in Sahara and in Sub Saharan Africa. Until today, you will find that they have a moment and it is wrapped around the neck and why again, functional, it protects and keeps the neck safe from the heat and the sun. And also if they need to

00:21:20 --> 00:21:25

they can they can cover their face if there's any Sandstorm or wind blowing, or anything of that nature.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:38

And sometimes we have descriptions where the offseason would wrap that a man with the tail of that imama under under his blessing chin. Are they his Salatu was Salam but it

00:21:41 --> 00:21:49

is it praiseworthy in and of itself to wear a turban? I don't see anybody here wearing a turban. What's wrong with you guys?

00:21:52 --> 00:22:11

So this is actually very interesting. And I got a question about this just earlier today some kind of law that somebody was perturbed why the person giving hookah but was not wearing a head covering? So the scholars have some interesting discussion and debate about this

00:22:12 --> 00:22:23

is wearing the turban and not just the remember, by the way that we're talking about now, but the clothing that the process of war in general, is it Sunnah of the Prophet? So I said

00:22:25 --> 00:22:32

yes or no. So we've got to take a step back. So what exactly do we mean when we refer to this

00:22:34 --> 00:22:57

article of clothing as a sinner? Meaning, is it praiseworthy? And is it rewarding to wear it with the intention of following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, I will say that some of them are concluded, yes, it is. Some of them are concluded that yes, there is specific virtue in wearing their enamel.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:17

But many of the LMS said no, not specifically. Because they said the clothing in general is something that goes back to what is referred to as the earth of the people. And this is something that many of the great scholars concluded. And voila, Adam seems to be

00:23:19 --> 00:23:56

good sound conclusion, with giving the utmost respect to the scholars who said it is praiseworthy in and of itself. And the reason being is many of the scholars they paused and they said, Look, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not institute a uniform, or, or a specific, you know, type of clothing, but rather the profits, the Larson them himself, maintained the clothing of his people and his and his culture, while setting certain parameters and certain,

00:23:58 --> 00:24:11

if you will, guidelines, so it was more of a dress code rather than a specific uniform. And we'll see some examples of that in the next chapter about the result. The

00:24:14 --> 00:24:17

lower half of the body clothing that the prophesized word.

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

But for example, colors there are certain colors that the prophets I send them discouraged.

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

Specifically for the men, the prophets, I said I'm discouraged from a certain type of red and where the entire cloak is red. Now some of the scholars said the red that he was referring to was not red as we refer to it, but closer to saffron, which is kind of like bright orangish red. They said the reason why is because this was something that was specific to machine specific to some of the pagans who wore and adorned this color. So the prophets I sent him give us a general bar either a principle, an axiom, which

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

He did not like to be similar to those that worshipped other than a lot in that which was specific to their religious practices.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:14

This is a principle. So if there is a certain attire

00:25:16 --> 00:25:29

or even if it is a certain hairstyle, or color, or jewelry that is specific to a religious group or a religious ideology, then that's what's forbidden.

00:25:31 --> 00:25:46

That is what becomes forbidden to wear. But if something is generally part of the culture, and it doesn't go against any of the broad guidelines that the prophet SAW Selim outlined, then it is permissible for a person to dress in the manner of their culture.

00:25:48 --> 00:25:52

Now, specifically, talking about imana, and headcovering,

00:25:53 --> 00:26:10

is very common in many cultures. Until today, this is not something of old, it's something of old and new, is very common in many cultures, specifically for the men, that they would cover their heads, otherwise, it's considered disrespectful.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:49

And that's still the case in many cultures. Now, Islam respects cultural norms and practices. A lot of times people in their zeal of learning something from the Sunnah, they want to battle culture, and go against everything that is in a culture. But that's not the practice of the prophets RS in them. That is what turns people away and creates animosity. That's not healthy. And that's not how we learned that tradition of the Prophet sallallahu. It was said them cultures in and of themselves. And the way that cultures dress people of cultures, dress is not inherently wrong, as long as it is within the general guidelines.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:09

So for those cultures, where it is considered respectful, then a Muslim should abide by that. If you live in an area, and this doesn't apply to us here, it doesn't apply to us here. unless I'm mistaken, you guys can correct me. But there's only about two people here covering their heads. So unless all of us are good.

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

But if you live in a culture where it is respectful, and you're going to stand out, you're going to be disrespectful for uncovering your head, cover your head, rather,

00:27:22 --> 00:27:57

wear wear kuvira wear whatever the people are wearing. The prophet SAW Selim did not inherently stand out. Like blatantly the prophets I sent him loved cleanliness. He loved to wear white, in these narrations, they describe his Imam as being so that black colored, and the prophet SAW sent on love for his clothing to be neat and smelling good and acceptable, palatable to his cultural norms and surroundings. That's what matters. So for a person to dress in accordance with their culture is praiseworthy, so long as they don't violate any of the

00:27:59 --> 00:28:08

guidelines of the process. I sent him. one more comment on this. And I hope I'm not exhausting anybody. But it's just because this topic keeps coming up so often.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:17

Let's talk about us here. No more theoretically, right here. We live in a very diverse culture.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:20

We live in a very diverse culture.

00:28:21 --> 00:29:02

And with diversity, people bring their different flavors and their different colors and cultural practices. So is it fair to say that here now in our community, that there is one specific way of dressing so as not to stand out and be exclusive and different than everyone else? I think it's very hard to do that. Especially within our Muslim gatherings. Maybe if you're talking about a corporate or academic setting, that is not part of the Muslim community, I can understand people have certain specific attire there. I wouldn't tell somebody who works a corporate job, go to work and you know, like,

00:29:04 --> 00:29:44

you fill in the blank, okay, something that would be palatable. But in our massages in our lead gatherings, and blah, blah, and in our classes and our functions, people come from a lot of different cultural backgrounds, and they represent that in the way they dress. So today, I'm wearing a shirt that is very similar to what many people in the subcontinent wear. And there's lots of people that just that way, as somebody might be coming from a place where they wear long shirts, others might be coming from places where they were very colorful shirts. You know, I had a really positive experience with this because in Medina, our school, it was, it was designed to be an

00:29:44 --> 00:29:50

international school. It was designed to cater to students that come from all over the world. So we had more than 160

00:29:52 --> 00:30:00

you know, nations represented in one university in one campus. So you saw all kinds of

00:30:00 --> 00:30:16

colors. I mean, you would get some brothers Mashallah from some West African countries, some of my classmates and they would have that shiniest clothing. It's like, you know, it's like a mirror. Actually, some people actually do have mirrors on their clothing. Little like circled mirrors. I'm not joking.

00:30:17 --> 00:30:44

There was a brother from Namibia used to always wear like a big shirt, and it literally had little circle like mirrors. I was like, wow, Mashallah, that's that's how his people dress. And so he brought that culture there. And so there was really nothing that would make you stand out because you have everything represented there. Oh, cultures, we used to have brothers from many of the Central Asian countries. And they have some very interesting hats.

00:30:45 --> 00:31:27

There are some brothers from logic and Stan, and, and Kyrgyzstan. And they have these white hats. It starts off looking like a sort of Stetson sort of cowboy hat. But then it curls over and the top of it goes straight up. And so it's like two feet tall. And the brother could be like of average height. You see him towering over everyone because he's got this long hat. They were brothers from Chechnya, and Dagestan and these places, and they have these circular fur hats, that are like, huge, they like go out to their shoulders, and they're, and they're just like moving like that, you know. And so it makes them look really big. That's their culture. That's their culture. And it's there's

00:31:27 --> 00:32:02

beauty in that there's there, Allah subhana wa tada said, in soda tub room watin, fo Li ne komatsuna decom, the variety of your your languages, your tongues and your colors. You have different colors. The prophets, I said, I'm sending a hadith that when Allah subhanaw taala created Adam, he took a fistful of dirt from this earth, from all of the different colors of dirt that are on this earth. And so the human being the head, he states, the colors of the different people correlate to the different colors of the dirts on this earth. And you don't find any human being with a complexion

00:32:03 --> 00:32:12

outside of the spectrum of colors of the soils and dirt on this earth. So there's no purple soil. There's nobody with a purple skin.

00:32:13 --> 00:32:22

There's no neon green soil. Nobody has neon green skin. But there is, you know, dark

00:32:23 --> 00:32:55

soil, and there is brownish, and there's goldish, and there's a yellowish and there's reddish, and there's tan, all of these different colors of dirts and the earth that's what you find in the, in the human being one of the local nyesha Dr. McKenna homily Allah Subhana Allah He was Allah I'm actually calling your Lord creates what He wills and chooses and selects from his creation. Makkah we didn't have a choice, which one of us chose our complexion and where we would be born into what culture we'd born into. None of us chose that we were not consulted on that matter.

00:32:57 --> 00:33:04

So behind Allah, how perfect is the law and how wise is Allah in His creation and in all of his

00:33:05 --> 00:33:07

affairs to kind of wattana

00:33:08 --> 00:33:16

so that is some scattered thoughts on on the idea of culture and dress and whatnot. But you have the next chapter continuing with with clothing

00:33:19 --> 00:33:20

Mashallah, it's warm in here.

00:33:22 --> 00:33:29

Chapter number 18 will read. There are only three or four narrations in this chapter. There's like a lot here whether it isn't

00:33:32 --> 00:33:36

Babel magic, obviously, if it is earlier, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:33:37 --> 00:33:39

had his number 119. But a half dozen

00:33:40 --> 00:33:42

or a dozen is not even even on him.

00:33:43 --> 00:33:46

And he made it when he wrote in and he brought that up all

00:33:47 --> 00:33:57

right, Elena Isha kisa and Maura Baden, what is the Holy One for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if he had been

00:33:59 --> 00:34:06

in this first narration of this chapter, we have this hadith on the authority of a being mobile data or the law of war and

00:34:09 --> 00:34:13

in another narration and data and maybe he will do Lauren Houma,

00:34:14 --> 00:34:25

where he says at Isha took out two pieces of clothing. One of them was kisa and Mola Baden. One of them was a

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


00:34:41 --> 00:34:50

chisa and one of his earlier one kisa and refers to what he covered himself, what he covered his upper body with

00:34:52 --> 00:34:57

and it's like, basically like a sheet. It's very similar to how men dress in Islam.

00:34:59 --> 00:35:00

You know, when men

00:35:00 --> 00:35:12

Make hedge or Imola and they were what's known as the economic the two towels. That top part is known as key SAP. And the bottom part is out. Is out and is our is a

00:35:13 --> 00:35:23

piece of cloth that you wear on your lower body. By definition and izhar begins at the waist and goes down. She described them as

00:35:24 --> 00:35:27

the upper sheet had patches in it

00:35:29 --> 00:35:34

had patches, there was some wear and tear, and the process of them had it patched and repaired.

00:35:35 --> 00:35:40

And as for the izhar, she described it as being coarse,

00:35:41 --> 00:35:42

coarse thick,

00:35:44 --> 00:35:49

a honey of means rough to touch, wasn't soft, in touch in texture.

00:35:51 --> 00:35:57

And she said the prophets are sending them his soul was taken, and he was wearing these two

00:35:58 --> 00:36:41

pieces of clothing. And he actually kept these in her possession. And after her, it was passed on to her sister a snap. It's not meant to be a backup, and she kept it in her possession. And they used to use it to seek blessing from it. And they also used to use it as a means of shift of seeking cure for the ill, they used to wash it and wash the person who was sick with the water from washing these two pieces of cloth. And we spoke before how anything that came into contact with the blended body of resources, Adam is medallic and it is permissible to do about look to seek blessing from it. However, we mentioned the caveat that many of the items today have no senate

00:36:42 --> 00:37:11

there is nothing that we that no chain of narration to authenticate for us that this particular item in people's possession today goes back to the prophets I send them so henceforth there is there is caution in the matter. So Aisha brought these two kisa and Maura Baden who is out on the 30th on a patched upper sheet and a coarse rough, lower, you know, waist cloth, if you will. And who is wearing these two pieces of clothing.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:15

cradle healthy law he Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:37:17 --> 00:37:18


00:37:19 --> 00:37:24

many opportunities in the prophesised alum have to access abundant wealth.

00:37:26 --> 00:37:27

But he wasn't interested in that.

00:37:29 --> 00:37:42

There's a narration that describes the wealth that came to Medina from a labelling not present day the country knows about Halloween, but in those days, the whole eastern part of the peninsula was referred to us by headline

00:37:44 --> 00:37:50

and it was the most and and most impressive wealth that came to Medina.

00:37:51 --> 00:38:04

So the messenger came to the source I sent them, his messenger came to the messengers laughs at him and said, the wealth from Alba halleen has arrived. The Prophet said, put it in the masjid and he didn't go to it.

00:38:05 --> 00:38:39

And then had until the time of Salah when as an was made, it was time for Salah then the prophets I said I'm went to the masjid. What Filipinas? Well, Emil tiffith in el mal, he went straight to lead slot and he didn't look at that. All of those resources that had come for either a 30 minute slot after slot Dharma, he didn't man. Then he went to the wealth and he sat down and he started calling all of the residents and he did not the narrator says he did not stand up from that position until he distributed every part of that wealth.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:49

It didn't faze him and he sold it to us to them. So even though he had that accessible to him, the prophet SAW Selim was not interested in amassing

00:38:50 --> 00:39:08

a lot of a lot of wealth out of his Salatu was Salam. Yet the prophet SAW said I was always keen on being very clean and presentable. Let us never confuse the asceticism the zoo had to mean that a person should be unkept that was never a part of his

00:39:10 --> 00:39:17

manner of carrying himself at his Salatu was Salam. Next Hadeeth 120 out of Iran para de Abu Dawood.

Illa Aeneas feasts of the south by either is in a nice sweet sapling,

00:40:06 --> 00:40:18

in this Hadith, and I will mention that this hadith has a wife Senate that the chain of narration is weak in this hadith. But what this hadith refers to is

00:40:20 --> 00:40:35

one of this habit essentially to paraphrase one of the Sahaba was walking and he heard someone called behind him and say, lift up your his own. And we said what is out is, by the way is our modern day terms. What do we call is up?

00:40:39 --> 00:40:49

No, well, something for some cultures, it's considered underwear. For some cultures, like in the Emirates, for example, they don't wear so they wear a white, a white cloth

00:40:51 --> 00:40:54

is our default depends. In Yemen, they still wear

00:40:56 --> 00:41:14

this especially in in many parts of Yemen, they still wear these out and there is out is not so enclosed. It's open, and it has tassels on the end. It's really nice. And it's usually a sort of thicker cloth. In the subcontinent. They have what they call a monkey.

00:41:16 --> 00:41:20

And the monkey is usually so enclosed in Southeast Asia they refer to that as a sarong.

00:41:22 --> 00:41:26

And that's what most people know as sarong. A few years ago, it became kind of like a sort of

00:41:28 --> 00:41:38

hipster fad to like wear a sarong. It didn't didn't last very long as you can imagine. But for a little while it got pretty, you know, like me to go backpacking Southeast Asia and we're surrounded like, Okay, good for you.

00:41:41 --> 00:41:44

It's always interesting how fashion fads come and go.

00:41:45 --> 00:41:56

So this man was wearing his out and he heard a voice behind him say, lift up your Isa, because it is in this narration we're reading at all will

00:41:57 --> 00:42:36

lift up your is up it was low said lifted up because it is more pious. And it is more preserving for the length of for the life of your his other shelf life of your is up. It is more pious, meaning it is more pleasing to Allah. And it is it will be more lasting. Because if your is out as dragging is gonna get torn and dirty and messy, and then it will you have to replace it. So it is more pious and it is better for the length of your job. So he turned around and it was the Messenger of Allah that was saying that. So he made an excuse, you know, he was saying that

00:42:37 --> 00:42:50

Zod is falling down on the cloth and the texture of it. He was making some excuse about it. So the prophet SAW Selim said to him, am I not suitable for you as a role model?

00:42:52 --> 00:42:57

And so he said, I looked at the result of the prophets, I send them and it came to NIS v southbay.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:01

Miss was sock soft his calf.

00:43:02 --> 00:43:18

They said nice facade is the part of the calf where the bulge of the muscle begins. So where that bulge begins, that pair there is called Miss for SAP. Okay, I'd like to make a few comments on this. We're kind of running out of time.

00:43:19 --> 00:43:23

There are multiple narrations describing the length of clothing.

00:43:25 --> 00:43:47

For example, let's read it. Let's actually read the next one so we don't get carried away. But I had done a survey who Saqqara doesn't have to live in robotic and most abundant Aveda and he simply said I'm happy to acquire an AVI file. Can I refund IT management a fan? yet? There's your ILA on Safi Sakai. Baka haka candidate is Allah to sahibi Jani and viola La Jolla send them

00:43:48 --> 00:43:50

but I had this an opportunity to proceed.

00:43:51 --> 00:43:57

I will be as happy and Muslim in a blue navy blue they do and they certainly among

00:43:58 --> 00:44:42

them, the Alberta at safty I was out there he had normally reserved for in debate for us well for in debate for the help button is already filled Caribbean. In these two narrations. The second one is a description of men, Abner offene. Who is the third hoodie for after the officer SLM and the son in law twice, of Russell's excellent. And the description is that his his arm came to newsfeed SAP SAP by where the bulge of his muscle in his calf begins. And if man is quoted to say, this is how my beloved companion used to wear his easel, and he's referring to who also de la has a lot of artists in them. Okay, the next Hadees which is the last one in this chapter.

00:44:44 --> 00:44:59

Are they familiar man says the prophet SAW Selim grabbed my calf or his, the narrator relating this said I don't know if he referred to his calf or the calf of the prophet SAW Selim. But he grabbed the calf in the middle where the bulge begins, and he said

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

This is where your resolve should reach until, if you want, you can go lower. And but he said, but do not go lower than the meaning of which is your ankle because he said your ankle should not have a share in your exam. But let's mention a few points on this. First of all,

00:45:23 --> 00:45:33

because there's a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, and many times people ask, you know, what should the length of clothing for the men and for the women be?

00:45:34 --> 00:45:50

So for the men, v is a hadith where the prophet SAW Selim mentioned, Musa, the middle point of the calf where the muscle begins. There's muscle all the way but you know what I mean, when it starts getting wider in length, and width.

00:45:51 --> 00:45:55

All of the Hadith that mentioned that line,

00:45:56 --> 00:45:57

only use the word is

00:46:02 --> 00:46:09

all of the narrations have the term lovable, the term is out, which is that waste cloth, waste cloth.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:14

However, there is something else called soap, or by means

00:46:15 --> 00:46:29

a soap or a means is the garment that begins from the shoulders and comes down. And none of the ideas use the term soap or communes, all of the headings that mentioned philbrook amines refer to ankle, they don't refer to sock.

00:46:31 --> 00:46:47

Does that make sense? Is that clear? Why are we mentioning this, because some people read these ahaadeeth. And they said, All clothing should come for the men should come to that link. And on a quick point, some people misunderstood this and they said women also their their clothing, their

00:46:48 --> 00:47:29

skirts, or dresses should also come to half of the calf. And that is an incorrect understanding. And there's no basis for that. We'll leave it to them. But as for the men, many said all clothing should come to half of the calf. And that is also an incorrect understanding why they're written, I said, when you were a waist cloth, it should come to the place of half of your calf, or it can come lower than that as well. Because they said when you go down for a record, or sujood, it doesn't hike up your leg, because it's tied at your waist. But when you were a snowboarder, please that is on your shoulders and on your back. When you go down for a record as to dude that necessitates at the back

00:47:29 --> 00:47:35

of it raises. And so if your thumb is coming to half of your sock, when you go for a record, your elbow is going to show.

00:47:36 --> 00:48:09

And voila, here we used to see this, that some people in their zeal would wear a robe and it comes, it's not even about above the ankle, it's about below the knee. And the brother goes down and you see the whole, you know, stuff that people don't want to see. And it's like what's going on? That's not the health of the prophesized. So that's a misrepresentation and an incorrect, holistic. Remember, this is a principle, regardless of the topic, we do not take singular texts, and look at them in absolute value. That's not how our shadow works.

00:48:10 --> 00:48:24

This religion and the law of this religion is comprehensive, you take inspiration, and you look at it in light of all of the other narrations in that topic, and then compile all of these, and that's how they come to informed conclusions about how to behave.

00:48:25 --> 00:48:43

But if you take one narration, and you see it and you say, Ah, this is the truth and you act upon it, this is misunderstanding and it could lead a lot of people astray and cause a lot of conflict. Also, the LMS said, again, what we said earlier about the Mmm, clothing goes back to Earth,

00:48:45 --> 00:48:59

clothing goes back to the norms. So, if this is something that is not culturally accepted, is that part of a person's cultural norm, they will actually do more damage in their effort to follow a certain that they will do more damage.

00:49:01 --> 00:49:26

So, those are some quick points there. Then I also said that these refer to these ahaadeeth of the of the SOC refer to the izhar, not the shirt or the film and not the pants. Also, we have other general a Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, where he encouraged men to raise their their thobe above their ankle above their ankle.

00:49:27 --> 00:49:30

And the scholars said that this applies to the film.

00:49:31 --> 00:49:50

But it does not specifically apply to the pants. However, they said any article of clothing should not drag to the floor. And above all, a person should not drag their clothing out of arrogance, or as an expression of might or to be pompous. That regardless of what the clothing is held on,

00:49:53 --> 00:49:59

if a person and that was something part of their culture, until today, until today, many people will have any

00:50:00 --> 00:50:11

Mashallah their brother is like a pant size 30 and he's wearing length 36 like, what are you doing? And there's like a bunch of Golding is just cleaning, you know, doing community service street sweeping.

00:50:13 --> 00:50:30

And it's like, it's, it's it's part of like a fashion statement as part of a fashion statement. So that's not right. That is not right. It is appropriate to be fashionable within the guidelines of what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us, there is much that can be said about this.

00:50:32 --> 00:50:34

A few other points.

00:50:38 --> 00:50:52

A few other points to mention is the prophets. I said I mentioned this facade. And he said for that, as well, if you wish, lower than that, the LMS said whenever the Prophet said and gives you options. That means that whole spectrum is

00:50:53 --> 00:51:13

basically you can choose which of those levels of length are appropriate for you. I mean, the professor Sam gave you Sir, he gave you some room to, you know, adjust the length, as long as it doesn't go below the ankle. As long as it doesn't go below the ankle, for the is out in the thoburn the commies will know who to either. lm

00:51:16 --> 00:51:23

Are there any questions? I know we just dropped a bunch of like, information on you guys. Any questions?

00:51:24 --> 00:51:25

on the topic?

00:51:27 --> 00:51:29

Or related topics? Definitely.

00:51:31 --> 00:51:31


00:51:33 --> 00:51:34


00:51:40 --> 00:51:43

Oh, man, are you reading a translation? Which translation is that?

00:51:50 --> 00:51:52

So So how do you say number 118?

00:51:56 --> 00:52:03

Mashallah. So how do you number 118, we've been informed that there is some meaning lost in translation.

00:52:04 --> 00:52:06

It's unfortunate how that happens. Sometimes.

00:52:07 --> 00:52:19

The headings are best where he said the processing gave the hotel by and we said this was the last hotel but also the lot. And he was wearing a the words you saw between this map as it comes in this particular narration.

00:52:20 --> 00:52:34

And we said it saw that is America. And this map means black in color, black in color. The retina also commented on this and they said it. Why does it seem that the processor would wear a black turban more often than a lighter colored one?

00:52:37 --> 00:52:42

Just use your your your deduction, your deductive skills.

00:52:43 --> 00:52:44

What do you think? Huh?

00:52:52 --> 00:53:07

Okay, but we have narrations saying he wore black. The idea is why would he wear black and not a lighter color? And not to say that he didn't. But the narration specifically that we have say we're black, we don't have a narration that specifically says a lot. Yes.

00:53:10 --> 00:53:11


00:53:12 --> 00:53:28

Because remember, you gotta like, like, you got to tie it, and like your hands are like on it all the time. And they worked with their hands. So if it was a white turban all the time, it would very easily become dirty, would very easily become dirty.

00:53:29 --> 00:53:44

And so they said it was very common in that culture. Not only it was sort of law, but again, this is a cultural norm that they wore darker colored Why? So that it doesn't get as dirty because you're always tying it with your, with your hands. We'll know who to Ireland.

00:53:46 --> 00:54:16

We know that the sweat of the prophet SAW Selim and we'll come to that later. But we'll know that the sort of the prophet SAW Salem was described as not having a bad smell at all, but rather it was a very beautiful smell. They say misc or Moscow. The idea is that it had a beautiful smell. And actually one of the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim, when he would have clothing that would be wet from sweat, she would squeeze it and they would save the blessing sort of the prophesies on them. So and also one of the Sahaba

00:54:19 --> 00:54:57

escapes me which companion but he said that he shook the prophets I sent him his hand and some of the sweat of the populace lm came into his hand, and he said, I've never smelt any leave. I never smelled any perfume that was as good as the smell of the profits. Little Mario's Adams sweat and his and his odor. Eddie his Salatu was Salam baby who married salatu salam. So we ask Allah subhana wa tada to beautify us and adorn us with the character of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhana wa tada as he has gathered us here to gather us in the company of our beloved messenger, we ask Allah to inspire us to learn and grow in our awareness and our love and our

00:54:57 --> 00:54:59

attachment to a lawsuit Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:22

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to increase us in passion and care and concern and love for the sun and the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while Darwin at hamdulillah Hello Bella alameen wa salam, wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad or any he will be he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira. Our next appointment together will not be next month.

00:55:23 --> 00:55:47

Because next month we have a much nicer appointment. And that is the appointment of one on mobile. And so the next Friday of June is the first and that's during Ramadan. So our next session in shallow data will be the sixth of July. We even in law heat about our data will be likely to feel, sir Mr. kuhmo document reliable data.

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

We have some announcements. Sunday there is blood drive this Sunday, what time

00:56:04 --> 00:56:10
