hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah, Allah, he was happy. I mean, if you look at vows in Islam, when you make a vow that Oh Allah, if you do this, I will do this. If you do that, I will do this. So the prophets of Allah seldom says another rule at behavoir in Mr. Zhu min and burfield, a vow doesn't bring about the goodness, but it's actually extracting a good deed, from person who is miserly or stingy to do good deeds. So we shouldn't treat a law by making the general vows general vows, meaning if I pass my exams, then I will read ayatul kursi analysis, just read it on kursi. Meaning, do what you want the act of worship and make dua to Allah ask him, instead of

00:00:45--> 00:01:29

playing this game or saying to Allah, you do this, I'm going to do this, Allah doesn't need you and I, Allahu levani, what unto modificata, Allah is independent, you are the ones who are dependent on him, you and I. So we should rather do the deed as a charity or whatever. But if you do make a vow, then you should fulfill it. So to make a vow is macro macro, meaning it's detested, it's not a good idea. But if you have made one, you won't be sinful, but you should fulfill it. So if you say, If Allah subhanho wa Taala does this for me, then I'm going to read, for example, two units of prayer, so Subhana Allah as much as it was mcru you know, you should have read the two units of prayer and

00:01:29--> 00:02:10

prayed to Allah supplicated to Allah. But if that thing happened, you would have to do those two units of prayer. So in the case of Mr. Utter Imran, the wife of a man, the grandmother of Jesus May peace be upon him from his mother's side, the mother of money and Allah salatu wa sallam, she obviously just wanted to dedicate her child. It wasn't that type of a vow that I mentioned now. But it was just to say, Oh Allah, I'm going to dedicate my child for you. And it was a promise. So she fulfilled this promise when the child was born. Notice she was already expecting according to the Quran, to say in The Nether to Luca Murphy, botany that what is in my belly right now in my room

00:02:10--> 00:02:25

right now. I'm dedicating that to you. I promise you that I'm going to dedicate it to when the child was born, it was a female, and there were a lot of miracles surrounding the birth of the child that was Mary May peace be upon her. Amalia, Molly has Salaam the mother of Musa alayhis salaam
