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

Howdy Snowden.

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

The objectives are as follows.

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

We're going to look at the background of this hadith.

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

Let's put your notes

00:00:14--> 00:00:14

and then

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

the topic of asking many questions, when is it praiseworthy? When is it blameworthy in Islam?

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

Then the flexibility of the Sharia

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

Sure.

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

Isn't stuff in.

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

Okay, the ICANN has been put on.

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

And then we're going to look at

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

doing good.

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

And then avoiding

00:00:54--> 00:01:06

evil, Tibetan, and the particular wording of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, when he mentioned to do good, as opposed to what he said about avoiding evil, as you'll see

00:01:19--> 00:01:30

how these nine obligations are according to one's ability, do good according to ability and keep away from the harm at all costs. And then the profit went on to mention the causes of destruction.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

And among them, asking too many irrelevant questions.

00:01:36--> 00:02:13

On Avi Reuter Abdullah madness, Raja Allahu anhu calls me to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a coal miner, a two commando vegetable woman Amato combi, he fell to Minho. Mustapha for in like a Latina Miss publikum Katha Tomas de la him laughing him Allah MBA him or her Buhari yo Muslim, Abu hurayrah, which we all know I'm sure his real name was Abdul Rahman Musa. If you didn't know now you do. His real name was Abdul Rahman a Musa. He was called abou right away.

00:02:14--> 00:02:56

Yeah, he loved kittens, and he always had a kitten with him. And sauce, you earn a name according to what you do constantly. So be careful of bad habits. You lie a lot, you be called a liar. You speak the truth a lot. It'd be called truthful. You joke around too much. Because the Joker, you seek knowledge a lot, you become the student. So be careful what you do constantly you become known by it as Mr. Barbara Dillard who said so he had a kid and he was called the father of the kid and, and the word apple and home doesn't necessarily mean mother and father of not all the time. It can mean saw, or Sahiba companion of he was the Companion of the kid. It doesn't mean his wife gave birth to a

00:02:56--> 00:03:10

kitten. So he's just to have it around him all the time. But his real name was Abdul Rahman a blue sock. And so comes from soccer and soccer is a stone of bowl day, something which is firm and he was firm as a rock, Lord Delano, Abu hurayrah.

00:03:11--> 00:03:29

He said I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, avoid that which I forbid you to do. avoid at all costs. But do that which I command you to do to the best of your ability best of your capacity? See the difference in wording? you notice that?

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

What did he say Solomon is

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

correct. He said do good according to ability. He didn't say avoid the harm according to ability What? We're going to see very shortly why that shows you the eloquence in the Prophet speech sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said no doubt Verily, the people before you were destroyed only because of the excessive questioning too many irrelevant questions and the disagreement with the prophets. Hadith narrated by Al Bukhari Muslim.

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

So let's look at the background of this hadith. Why was it narrated

00:04:06--> 00:04:16

sebel road which are the reasons or background for why this had this was mentioned? It's conceivable road is very important to enable us to understand its meaning.

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

What happened was a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about Hajj after Salah was commanding the people to perform it. So the man said the other sort of law should we perform Hajj every year Rasul Allah then said these words, whatever I forbid you from keep away. But what if I told you to do do as much as you can according to ability? Don't ask too many irrelevant questions. Imagine imagine because of that man's question. Rasul Allah said yes, every year you have to perform surgery, how difficult and how much of a burden would it be on us? See how too many irrelevant questions can be a cause of your destruction. So that's why there are so low went on to mention that

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

Excessive questioning about issues that are not relevant or whatever it may be, we're going to look at some of those lists. And some of those questions that you shouldn't ask can actually be a means of your destruction and demise. So that's the background for the Hadith and helps you understand it. So it says lessons, the

00:05:18--> 00:05:53

lessons the incident above was at the time of Revelation, asking too many questions about obligation may lead to complications and confusions. Just like when it comes to the essays at the miaa College, too many questions asking yourself Mohamed will actually make it difficult upon you. Should I do it like this? Or should I do it like that? Should I put in this point form or this essay form? Or should I put answer this question like this once and like that? Now, asking questions is fine, but if it's too many, too many, then what's going to happen? It's actually going to restrict it on you. Like what happened to Ben Israel? Allah azza wa jal Rasul Allah commanded them, or sorry, the

00:05:53--> 00:06:33

Prophet Musa commanded them to slaughter a cow. Any cow would have done Yes, but what do they ask? What color? What's it look like? What type how old, young, old male, female. And that's because of the excessive questioning, then they actually restricted the type of cow that will make the slaughter. And thus they couldn't find that cow, except with one boy who used to own it. And he was told Look, these people are troublemakers, his people are giving the Prophet a hard time, make the price really high, that ended up paying 10 times its price 10 times its worth, and they had to get it eventually to slaughter it. But as you can see, because they made things hard, Allah made a hard

00:06:33--> 00:07:05

on them. So when we asked you, for example, the essay I'm just using as an example, you can relate him they were not upset with anyone Don't get the wrong idea. We love it when people ask questions, because they want to perfect it. But as long as you're answering the question whatever way you want to put it, and as long as you just whatever the question asked, you just try to enter it to the best of your ability, I'm sure all of you will get any full marks or close to full marks. So not to worry, not to worry. So that's what happened. That's what happened in terms of the front salon itself. So that's the background of the Hadith. Now let's look at many questions. Should I close

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

this now?

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

Because of the echo and the noise. So

00:07:13--> 00:07:24

now, asking questions in the right way is encouraged, as understood from the first Hadith, if you remember, who was a companion who asked a lot of questions, and he was praised by that.

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

If not bass, if not bass was asked, how did you gain so much knowledge? What did he say?

00:07:32--> 00:07:51

70 milliseconds or old? A tongue that would always ask? And he said, Well look been cool or a mind that would understand. So a lot of questions is good at times, if it's in the right context, students of knowledge wanting to understand how to worship a lot. But there are times when it's displaced.

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

So we're going to look at that in a moment.

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

As for the questions that are good,

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

praise worthy questions.

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

I'm adding these to your notes. Start there. What are they

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

would be for example, if you're a student of knowledge,

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

asking about worship, so you can worship correctly.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

You want to clear your understanding.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

You have a misconception you want to clear up etc.

00:08:35--> 00:08:48

No problem as a student try and understand until you get your head around it. Oh, hell no, sir. Hello Mr. Madhavan? And that's why Mr. Bass was so knowledgeable. He asked for the questions when he was seeking to learn not seeking to cause trouble.

00:08:54--> 00:08:57

What about the questions that are blameworthy?

00:09:04--> 00:09:10

Those questions that are blameworthy would be asking about issues of the unseen.

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

The home

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

going deep into the wind decree, we're not going to truly understand it.

00:09:24--> 00:09:45

In fact, last night, a woman came to Mia and she accepted Islam hamdulillah. And we've and she was speaking about her beliefs and so forth. And she, although no Muslim she says Look, there are many things I'm not going to truly understand about Divine Decree because when I was explaining our candle, the man asked to explain that Divine Decree and she accepted it. She was there understanding

00:09:46--> 00:09:57

as well. Okay, easy. It will take your shadow. Yes. Hum de la she took a shadow last night. So she came with a friend and she's from New Town, and she just hummed in love. Yeah.

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

Yeah, it's just amazing that we know when you're involved in our hire comes to you to do anything. Someone just came Look, I want to take my shadow. Okay? Say this hamdulillah. So, if that's not enough motivation to be involved in dow I don't know what it is, in how many people that would love to just get one Shahada one. But as you saw what happened at the time a man came in right Angelo Alhamdulillah, I'm still in contact with him. People just come to you hide opens the doors on it or like open the doors of greatness open up for hamdulillah. So she accepted and she understood that, look, there are things that we can understand. And we need to understand that as well. Because, you

00:10:37--> 00:11:15

know, the eyesight is limited. Yes, we can't see behind that wall. For example, the ability to hear is limited, you can't hear what's going on. For example, at your home at this very moment, your ability to touch is limited. There are many things you can't touch that will harm you. The senses of the body are limited. In other words, if the senses are limited, surely the mind is going to be limited because it receives the information from the sensors. So sometimes people though, what do they do like the philosophers you cut the sooner cooler home they try to magnify their minds. They try to over Sanctify them, they try to think that they can understand everything about the universe,

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

but guess what's never going to happen.

00:11:18--> 00:11:27

Especially when it comes to Divine Decree of God and Allah azza wa jal names and attributes. That's another one. When it comes to a lot of names and attributes.

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

There are many things that we just accept. And we do not ask how.

00:11:33--> 00:11:34

For example,

00:11:37--> 00:11:48

when the man came up to Imam Malik, he said, our man who had a lot of sister Yes, Allah is about he rose above the third guy passed away. How did he rise? No, not allowed to

00:11:49--> 00:12:30

avoid things like how to GIF avoid things like Tim field, and that nom de la Newland is enough either things we don't go into what we have evidence for, we speak about, but things that we don't have evidence for we keep far away. Because as we said, we're not going to even understand. As humans, we don't even understand everything in the universe. And we're gonna try to understand the law in totality. Yes, what can happen, or we don't even understand the human body. In fact, we don't understand everything about the human, how are we going to send everything about Allah. So we have to just accept it as they are. So Oliver Malik, when he was asked this question, he became outraged

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

and he began to sweat,

00:12:32--> 00:13:15

sweat out of anger. And he said, at least in my room, the rising of Allah is known we know what it means in Arabic. Well, email will be huge him to believe in it is an obligation. Well, Kate, for module, how Allah did is unknown wouldn't know I wasn't a witness, it wouldn't have any. He thought about it was to Allah, Buddha, and to ask about is an innovation. We don't ask how it's like a person wouldn't ask, how does Allah see everything we accept, he sees everything. You'll know how he sees it, he does call us. That's what's important that he sees and he hears and so forth. But how we don't know. And we don't ask how and we don't like and a lot to his creation when I was a villa.

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

So things like that. We avoid asking.

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

Also,

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

especially when it comes to

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

common questions of the layman.

00:13:30--> 00:13:41

Sometimes people they're not students. They're not students, but they're just layman. They don't really want to seek knowledge, but they're just asking too many irrelevant questions. or asking about questions.

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

That there is no evidence for,

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

for that which

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

is not necessary for guidance.

00:14:01--> 00:14:42

For example, Allah azza wa jal mentioned the story of a seibold gaff, the companions of the cave, Allah mentions the dog, the companion that was with him four times. What is he mentioned? It teaches us something very important. The dog was mentioned because it was the companions of it was the friend of the companions of tawheed. It was the companion of those believers of utter hate fuss was deserving to be mentioned. In other words, be with the believers be with the people of righteousness and inshallah Tada. Their goodness will also affect you. So that's the wisdom from Allah mentioning the dog four times. Although a girl a dog is usually an animal that's looked down upon and dispraise

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

nevertheless, because it was the with the people of their head, it deserved to be mentioned. So some people some people that want to ask what type of dog was it? Was it a two hour was a German Shepherd? Was it What about the color was it why was a black that have brown spots or red spots? That is lion fat knowledge, it does not benefit

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

No evidence for and it does not provide guidance. If it's not in the Quran and Sunnah. It's not important for you. Like some people want to go and look into the issues of other alien life. Is it in the Quran and the Sunnah? Do the aliens really exist? And if so important for your guidance, so can I give you to gender? If you know aliens exist or not? So can I get you to them? What is mentioned in the Quran, Sunnah? Is that what will get you to gender? That's very important for your area. Because what's the Quran about hood lol macduffie Matsuda

00:15:32--> 00:15:54

guidance guidance, or the man either that Allah sent down for a Sally celemony companions a table spread is also a call to the mat either the end of that surah Allah mentioned the table spread that Allah sent down with food. People want to ask what was on that table was a roast beef was at lamb was a chicken, olives, onions and water the foods that will lay people ask

00:16:02--> 00:16:11

the end I spoke to Suleiman, what was it called? What was the name of the end? Oh, no, the name of the end? I want to know why. So you can name your pet that name while

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

he's alive. The questions I get are like that IGA by de

00:16:20--> 00:16:58

Panama. So there's others, but just based on what you've just said there if you were to explain to kids and say that, because you know how we say to them that Allah subhanaw taala. He's the old here the Osia. If you reference saying he has an army of soldiers, and they refer they refer back like they go back to him and they tell him what the creation is doing what we are doing, if we're praying if we're stealing if we're good, if we're bad. Is it alright to refer to? Yeah, Allah is an army no doubt. Well, my lm Would you rather be Kela? Who knows the soldiers of Alex of T? Isn't? No problem.

00:17:07--> 00:17:46

Sure. Allah says this is no Quran, Galileo mean who officia and every day he has an affair to take care of. So he's ordering for some people to be born. He's ordering decreeing some people to pass away his blessing others he's detracting from blessings. He's honoring people. He's lowering people humiliating others. So every day he's in an affair called Leo Minho, officially known as a for the Cabal say, Allah created the world and he is let it be. And he rested on the seventh day kicked back out of the villa as the kuffaar say, right, this is the Christian side. I hold the villa and and that's why they rest on the seventh day. They believe that God rested on Sunday Firstly, rest as

00:17:46--> 00:18:02

well. And that's something what the Jews also some of them believe that's why they refer to as the Sabbath. Right what's the Sabbath the Sabbath? What does Sabbath mean? This is mentioned in the Quran surah never who knows sabetta

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

john milele bossa

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

nova calm. So better made your night you're sorry, we've made you sleep so bad. As a time of rest so bad. That's where the word Sabbath, Yama sub came from.

00:18:19--> 00:18:39

Not fair bit. This is Tibet from Sabbath you're most of the Saturday because so bad that means to rest. So they took the Sabbath as a day of rest and that's what they that's where the word Sabbath in Arabic actually comes from. But the way they understood it was wrong. Yes, it means that they risk but the way they understood it was that God took a break as well.

00:18:40--> 00:19:22

And he got tired all the billet that's when unbelievable gets tired. Or he forgets when he fights with Danny as they said, they know Israel fought fought wrestled a lot. I was Avila So anyway, to go into details of things that we're not going to have knowledge of, and so forth. And this happened in Top Ramen ramen noodle halifa A man was asking, what's the exact meaning of when nazjatar vodka when he taught in a store for Sabha December? It was asking what what are all these meanings? What do they actually mean? So Mr. O'Donnell said, keep going, keep going. Ask ask ask. You get asking, asking asking them then after us finished, almost said you don't know. The man said yes. So you grab

00:19:22--> 00:19:26

date palms and started to hit him over the head with it. They promise.

00:19:28--> 00:19:52

And he said do you understand the answer? Now? He says yes, I do you understand? Because this man, he was a layman. And he was actually a troublemaker. He was causing doubts in the minds of the Muslims. It wasn't a student of knowledge wanting to understand his Deen. So you have to understand the context. You have to understand the context. Now that was our model. In the right time in the right place doesn't mean every time every person who comes and asks a question, you hit him over the head with the date palm leaf

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

or a hammer. No, no, no. So we have to understand also he was the halifa and everyone knew him for that and he had that authority.

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

To do that now No.

00:20:02--> 00:20:13

So we have to understand there are praiseworthy questions. But irrelevant questions that are will not benefit, you know, too many irrelevant questions that will not benefit you are not good at all, actually cause your destruction.

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

So, that's the many questions

00:20:21--> 00:20:27

laneway the questions that also I was referring to, as for the flexibility of the Sharia, let's go back to the notes.

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

Someone like to read

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

need a bit of a break.

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

I will get Mohammed to read.

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

She's a teacher. So we're on the you know, it's where it says the next page one significant characteristic of the Sharia

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

with someone luxery

00:20:56--> 00:20:56

There you go.

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

However,

00:21:28--> 00:22:02

so this shows you now we're gonna look at the flexibility of the Sharia of Islam. And when hamdulillah This is a dean of he is not a dean of hardship, Allah said this in the law, he read the become, I'll use while you read to become a last allowance is for you, not hardship. That's what Islam is about. Therefore, if things become hard, then you are no longer obligated to perform those actions. For example, hedge hedges is an obligation. However, if you're unable, whether you're sick, you've got health reasons, financial reasons, you can't perform it what happens later and have to,

00:22:03--> 00:22:17

unfortunately, however, there are some people who say no, the woman, we know that a woman she doesn't she's not allowed to travel if she doesn't have what Muharram. So, therefore, she doesn't have a mallam to go with on how she doesn't have to go.

00:22:18--> 00:22:49

Ella, some people that want to say no, no, if she has four other women, she can go. Who said this, there's no delille in Auckland sooner to support that. In other words, that's actually making it hard on the woman, you're now making her go. Even though she doesn't have a Muslim. And you're not obligating it on her way, she's not no longer obligated to do so. She should say there's evidence so if she doesn't have the maharam Alhamdulillah the obligation is lifted. Elena they come up with a fatwa that for women make the Muslim they take the position of the Muslim No.

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

He goes, I'll show you a 40 here.

00:22:55--> 00:23:16

But you know, there is no such thing as taking for women with you. And that now substitutes the Muslim men that actually making it hard. So they claim the wahabis are making things hard, actually, they're making a HUD, right. But then again, I haven't met a heavy. But if you've met one, let me know. I've never met a person who says I'm over heavy. So as anyone.

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

Apparently to them we are.

00:23:22--> 00:23:42

But all I'm saying is that they claim the web is makes things hard. And these are the same people who are putting these conditions on the women who don't even have to go anymore. They don't have to go Why are you making a hard? Why are you forcing him to go? So what about there's not there's not enough, you know, next the federal command as long as there's one price woman next to obey as long as she goes on her own? It's okay. So.

00:23:43--> 00:23:53

So as you can see it hamdulillah the Sharia is flexible, it's flexible, and if you cannot do particular actions, then you are no longer obligated to do so. The fondling

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

pious the prophets

00:23:58--> 00:23:59

statements.

00:24:05--> 00:24:08

However, due to unavoidable circumstances, they can be

00:24:12--> 00:24:12

a person.

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

Thank you.

00:24:26--> 00:24:36

So I'll summarize the flexibility of the [???]tier for you in one statement, and that is a principle from a solid fifth very important principle you should memorize.

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

Either bar column row.

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

When a matter

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

becomes tight and restricted, it's Desa. It automatically necessities

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

Data is, if you find an obligation has become restricted on you, you can't perform it very difficult Alhamdulillah it automatically becomes easy. It automatically widens. So you can't pray as a sister said, You can't pray standing, you pray, sitting, you can't pray sitting,

00:25:19--> 00:25:24

lying down. So there are hamdulillah other avenues to make it easy for you

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

in the wrong way. Now, as he told me, Australia,

00:25:54--> 00:25:58

Sydney hasn't reached that stage where you're getting killed just because you wear hijab doesn't reach that.

00:26:02--> 00:26:08

Now that hasn't reached really that stage where every time you walk out with the hijab, that you're getting beaten up.

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

Yeah, that's right. No, no, that's sometimes people.

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

It does. Yes, it does.

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

Thank you.

00:26:32--> 00:26:35

When a matter constricts,

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

it automatically widens, necessitate ease.

00:26:56--> 00:27:33

So let's just say you get sick to the level where you can't actually touch water or make you worse, then you don't have to perform will do you can use them, etc. Even if you fear it, you may get sick and you feel using water will actually cause you harm. You don't you can actually use them. I when I get really sick, it happens to me that touching water makes me makes me worse. And I therefore I feel using the water. So even if you feel even though it hasn't happened yet, but you see and doctors have told you that do not go near otherwise this will happen and make it worse than therefore hamdulillah. There are other means like tm woman other things like this. So what

00:27:33--> 00:27:52

hamdulillah This is a flexible Sharia. Unlike you find other religions where people are forced, they're forced to be placed in really restricted and tight situations, for example, Christianity or some sects of Christianity, you're not allowed to divorce not allowed to do as part basically not allowed ever. Even if the husband's gonna kill his wife not not allowed.

00:27:53--> 00:28:37

Even if she's gonna kill him not not allowed. So in Islam, no Alhamdulillah divorce takes one or five I can. Sometimes people they just labeled divorce with one category like it's heroin, or it's macro, or no, you can't say that. Depending on the situation, it could be how long you're divorcing to harm them. It could be where to propel you to divorce, if the spouse is going to kill each other literally. And we say, have a divorce so you don't kill each other. It could be desired. It could be macro disliked, it could be encouraged, it could be permissible. So as you can see, there are different outcome a person just wants to divorce for no reason. We say no, in this case, it's not

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

designed to do so.

00:28:40--> 00:28:47

So as as you can see, every situation is requires a different factor. To paint every single case with the same brush is incorrect.

00:28:48--> 00:28:54

So now let's go on to the last bit Rasulullah said do good. According to what?

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

Your ability.

00:28:57--> 00:29:20

This is in accordance with the law. Hi, Mr. Tato. Fear Allah, keep your duty towards him as much as you can. But it also must say avoid evil according to ability. No, what did he say? Keep away at all costs, avoid evil at all costs, and his great wisdom in that. And I'm going to write that on the board now the wisdoms from the eloquence of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam speech.

00:29:30--> 00:29:33

He didn't say avoid evil according to ability. Why?

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

Because everybody's ability because everyone will say I'm gonna, I'm not going to. Everyone will use that as an excuse to commit sin. I can't leave the home. I can't leave drugs. I can't leave. I can't leave alcohol. So it's not within my capability to leave it. No, you can affect that or Sula ordered you to leave it

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

Arrow costs he didn't say leave it if you can, it shows you number one, that everyone

00:30:07--> 00:30:08

can avoid the huddle.

00:30:12--> 00:30:36

Everyone can avoid the forbidden. That's proof because it also mustn't leave it hidden say if you can, no because you can do it. The excuses Some people say I can't leave smoking, I'm addicted. I can't leave drugs. I'm addicted. No, no, no, no. That's only in the mind. You can leave it because who last told us to do it? And Allah azza wa jal will not command you to leave something if it wasn't in your means.

00:30:37--> 00:30:54

As for good deeds, no, there are some good data you can't do. If you're sick, you can't fast. If you don't have a maximum you can go overseas, for example, you don't have worth you can't give some other costs as you can see the eloquence in the Prophet speech. So he said avoid at all costs. Why? Because number one, everyone can leave it off. Secondly,

00:30:56--> 00:31:01

so everyone can avoid the forbidden, but not everyone can perform obligations. Secondly,

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

abstaining from the forbidden

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

is actually easier than performing a deed.

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

Performing a deed you need to work you need to do something you need to stand up to pray, for example, you need to earn money. If you want to give us a call, you need to do something, but abstaining enough to lift the finger you don't have to move, just keep away.

00:31:34--> 00:31:58

So if you want to be lazy, then we'll say there's room for you in Islam be lazy when it comes to abstaining from the Haram just don't do anything. And be as much be as lazy as you can when it comes to performing impermissible actions. be extremely lazy, don't do anything, keep away from home at all costs. So that's from the wisdom of the prophet SAW Selim. That abstaining is easier that's why he said you can do you can keep away.

00:31:59--> 00:32:12

Just don't even go out that night to The Club. For example. Don't even call that person on the phone opposite gender that you're interested in. Don't even lift up your head or lift a finger to light up a cigarette for you don't even do any just abstain, just sit there

00:32:13--> 00:32:19

and be lazy. So that's when you're allowed to be lazy in Islam when it comes to hold on when it comes to good deeds, no.

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

And the fact that Rasulullah said to keep away all costs, not according to ability. Why? Because a little bit of her arm a little bit of evil will lead to what

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

we

00:32:40--> 00:32:47

see the wisdom of Russell wise, taking us don't even follow the footsteps of shaitaan. That's how Satan gets you. footsteps bit by bit bit by bit.

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

Have you all heard the story about Caesar?

00:32:53--> 00:33:01

Sorry about Caesar. amazing story. But it's about how shaytaan gets you with footsteps bit by bit.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

It's a long story. I'm not gonna mention it now.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

Exactly. Yes.

00:33:18--> 00:33:57

No doubt they need assistance. We're not saying that they lift at the same time. We're not saying it's not. It's not. We're not saying it's not going to be easy. It is going to be hard for people are addicted, especially those who are addicted to drugs extremely difficult. But we're talking about from the beginning, that everyone had the ability to avoid it that we're referring to, as for those who then are addicted, they can do it. But it's going to be of course much harder, because they're addicted. One thing addiction doesn't occur. We know it does occur, it's in effect its effect. However, every single person had the ability to not indulge in that from the beginning. And

00:33:57--> 00:34:23

they can they can stop it if they were provided, as you said with help assistance. And they they really wanted to. Because sometimes just having one of those factors isn't enough. Some people really want to get out of it. Like I know some sisters who are on ice, and they want to stop they really want to but they're just finding it really difficult. Now, the fact that other people have gotten off, it is proof that it can be done. So what we're saying is

00:34:24--> 00:34:40

that it can be done, it can be done. It's not impossible to leave the house. No, it can be done. We're not saying it's gonna be easy. It may be really difficult for some people, especially if they've had those habits for many years because Old habits die by heart. So it can be done. It can be done.

00:34:41--> 00:34:45

And finally with doing the good as much as you can

00:34:47--> 00:34:53

with the system system Hammad Can you finish off that page, please? zylofon Yes, the Tibetan

00:35:11--> 00:35:43

Direct like some people say, Look, I'll go have some coffee, you know with with this guy on the weekend, I'm not going to indulge and do it every week. No once. No, you have to avoid at all costs because as we said, shaitan gets you with the footsteps because she thought he was not going to tell you. Gurkha Messina right now. Danny, it's very unlikely that's going to happen but rather he'll get you with indulging in the harm even if it's a little bit like speak on the phone chatting and having a coffee and cake and then a lot homestand what happens after that?

00:35:45--> 00:35:49

Would you like someone else to read if you're busy with your son Mashallah totally

00:35:55--> 00:36:35

anybody, or act even if it is an obligation? If there is an easier option, one should not use the harder option. For example, during cold weather, we should use one waterfall you will have the opposite answer combined and the policy should be avoided. However, when there is not a choice, everyone also has an answer. No. So do as much as you can. And don't attach unnecessary hardship to your to deed, even if it's by for example, promising yourself every single night in Ramadan inshallah, tada, I take an oath that I'm going to come to Mia and do the one just a night or two, we're going to do this year one, just so you're going to make it obligatory upon yourself to do it.

00:36:35--> 00:37:08

And then you find after the first few days, you're extremely burnt out, extremely burnt out, and then you can't get and you don't even show up for the rest of the night and Ramadan, and then you missed out on the other altogether. So take it easy on yourself, do as much as you can. Don't overburden yourself. Also unnecessary hardship, you have warm water, and you have cold water. Now it's getting really cold these days. So you wake up, I'm going to use cold water make a heart of myself, what would you do that the Hamza loves best tea with warm water and hot water, so use that no problem. However, if you don't have an option, then of course, if you have to use the hard

00:37:08--> 00:37:45

option, then while hamdulillah you are rewarded more and added to Allah, Masako, the reward is dependent on the hardship. So the harder it is, then, of course, the more rewards you get. So for example, there were two sisters that used to come to let's just say class and one of them lives close another one lives further away. And there are the other sister lives further away. She has 30 Allison's near her house as well. But she wants to come to these lessons. Although they're the same lessons, let's just say same teacher, same lesson, everything, but she wants to come here. And by doing that making a hard on yourself. That's actually a means of having shaitan overpower you know,

00:37:45--> 00:38:23

become because over time, you may not be motivated to travel the distance. And fast you may even drop it out altogether. For example, especially when it comes to brothers who want to pray and massage it at night. I live in the Preston so it's better for me to pray, invite to the salami as opposed to coming every night here to Mia. Why because by coming here every night, what it can do, then it's actually you can open up the door for creating unnecessary hardship, or shaytan can get to you. But if there's an easy option, and you can still fulfill the date in that way, then go with the easier option. Otherwise straight on can actually come to you from that any harder Avenue

00:38:32--> 00:38:32

according to the

00:38:37--> 00:38:55

following strictly to a certain schedule. But instead he she could do it with a technique of her own template. For example, don't make it aware that you will post every Monday and Thursday but do it as much as you are able to comfortably embrace it from time to time to be trusted to meet yourself in a manner they never need.

00:38:58--> 00:39:12

He's not saying don't set goals set goals but at the same time don't make it obligatory, as we said by taking an oath, for example. But no doubt setting goals is important. And I believe the notes gone to mention their last page.

00:39:13--> 00:39:36

The profit sort of lost limbs advice, very important in this regard. He said the best of these are at one Moha one Pella consistent, even if they're small, it's better for you to do something consistent, even if it's more than to do something run off and make it big. Think of it like sadhaka it's better for you to give let's just say $5 a week and soda as opposed to giving

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

you $100 a month $500 a month because you might do a one month, two month and you'll stop. Whereas the $5 a week over many weeks over years, what will happen you actually accumulate a lot of bassinet. So it's actually better to do something like don't overburden yourself. Don't say that is Yeah, I'm going to do this and I'm going to do this tomorrow. I'm going to do this and rather do something small but be consistent. So instead of for example with Quran, memorizing or wishing to read

00:40:00--> 00:40:23

certain number of pages every day, then have a small amount, maybe one page or two pages. And then over time you increase. And this is something that a lot of Muslims don't understand. Especially Ramadan. Ramadan is coming up sisters. So pace yourself, think of Ramadan as a race. When you have a 400 meter dash, you don't put all of your effort in the first 100 meters rather you start off slow, you increase increase, and then you as you get to the finish line,

00:40:24--> 00:40:32

then you bought for the any home stretch. So that's how you should think of Ramadan but not to overburden yourself and do everything you can in the first 10 nights.

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

And finally,

00:40:36--> 00:40:45

when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said do as much as you can do good according to ability, this has two meanings and will end here, two meanings

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

and they both applicable. This is not in your notes.

00:40:52--> 00:40:53

The first meaning

00:40:55--> 00:41:05

is performed the obligations according to your ability. In other words, do not become lacks if you're able, that's what the prophet sallallahu wasallam is telling us

00:41:06--> 00:41:06

perform

00:41:14--> 00:41:16

obligations according to ability

00:41:21--> 00:41:32

as Mohammed read with the prayer, it's in your ability to pray on time so do so in other words, that is don't become lakhs

00:41:35--> 00:41:37

then become lakhs and become lazy.

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

If you're able.

00:41:44--> 00:42:14

That's the first meaning. That's what also was telling us as much as you can now pray after this TV program, or perhaps this movie, or pray after posting these things on Facebook or sharing these particular comments, Elena, do it now. Do it now. That's the meaning of love Akbar. Allahu Akbar being good Alicia, Allah is greater than everything. Whatever you're doing, he's greater than it was mentioned. Some of this lF will be about while they're chopping wood, about to chop a piece of wood that we put on the axe.

00:42:15--> 00:42:54

Not let me just finish this one here. It's already up as they come down. Anyway, y'all I'll chop it up. Chop that piece. Allahu Akbar minha. stirring the pot. Hola, Allahu Akbar, from this food, whatever I'm doing. If you can, doesn't mean now if you if, as we said, if you're able, able, if you can, if you can leave a come back to a great if you can't, no problem and hamdulillah as we said, the deen is flexible. So it gives you that room. Like for example, the praise. there's a there's a few hours until the next prayer. So there's that room there. If you're not able and that's from the flexibility for today, but we're talking about if you're able to not become lacks, that's the first

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

meaning and the second

00:42:57--> 00:43:07

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is telling us there's no obligation except with ability, meaning if you are unable, you will no longer obliged. That's the meaning.

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

There's no obligation

00:43:14--> 00:43:16

except with ability.

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

So once you are unable, you will no longer obliged. And this is supported by the air layer you can live alone Epson, Ilsa, you're not able on hamdulillah no longer obliged. We ask Allah azza wa jal to enable us to perform as many good deeds as possible. And to enable us to keep us away from the home at all costs. Does that come along? Hayden, panic, aloha mobile home Nick Machado and Isla islands.

00:43:45--> 00:44:06

This habit is important for you sisters, because you may start to feel burdened when it comes to these lessons come to the hours, the essays, the exams. If you feel that doing five subjects, for example is too much due for if you feel forced too much to do three, do good according to ability. So don't overburden yourself. We'd rather you be consistent. Even if it's small.

00:44:07--> 00:44:51

Some brothers some sisters drop drop that completely. We're not blaming them because everyone has their own circumstance, but some of them felt pressured. Okay, don't do five subjects just due to she can't do due to one. So do something do something better than doing nothing. So that's another famous principle in a solid fifth. Mariela Dracula, whoa, whoa, whoa, if you can't do it, oh, don't leave at all. So when it comes to Ramadan, if you feel that praying in the massage is too much standing, come to the masjid so you can get and sit and pray. We're talking about that. Okay, no problem. You can see for all of the tearaway

00:44:52--> 00:44:58

isn't a better for a person to sit in all of the title there than to stand for half of them of course.

00:45:01--> 00:45:03

If you can't come to the masjid, you can pray.

00:45:07--> 00:45:12

Because it's an optional prayer, then it's not as if you are falling short.

00:45:13--> 00:45:49

Especially for the women, the women don't have to pray in the masjid. There are some opinions that the men have to pray the phrase in the message if you're able to have to, but women know it's better for me to pray at home but when it comes to what's better now, do I pray at home? That we pray that away in the masjid? Where do you feel your mental increase? If you feel some people actually prefer the home if you feel your man will increase in the masjid come the gathering the sisters and the environment is beautiful the atmosphere Ramadan is unlike any other month. So go where your Eman is going to increase what's going to have more or shorten your Salah. Sometimes when you're at home

00:45:49--> 00:45:54

alone and you're praying you don't feel that motivation sometimes. So go with what's going to benefit you.

00:45:55--> 00:46:13

So it's important to understand these topics before Ramadan because unfortunately many people that don't know how to handle and juggle all of their worship and the the actions of Ramadan and will also tell the brothers don't overburden your wives. It's the month of fasting not the month of fasting. Don't

00:46:14--> 00:46:25

obligate your wife to cook every single dish under the sun every single night. Every night he wants a variety he wants to share with others and gift orders in Brazil and Australia and he wants
