00:05:02--> 00:05:54

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala extrafill Ambia it will mousseline Nabina Muhammad Ali he of total Salah what attempted to sleep, Amma buried salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. So we are now at the story of the Queen of Sheba build peace. And we will come to her story. Now, just before we do that, this was the last item that we discussed in last week's session on why everything happened for Musa alayhis salam, as well as you know, the women that are mentioned at that part of his life. So as soon as Musa alayhis salaam left Egypt, he went to the city of Meridian, the two women that he met there and help them out. Then from there, he

00:05:54--> 00:06:40

met their father, then from there he married one of the daughter or daughters of the father. Then after that he leaves and then he speaks to Allah. And throughout all of that he has stability, security, peace, he has food, he has comfort, he has a home pretty much every single thing in his life changed and this all boiled down to this one moment of his life where it was the power of dorm and then there was the famous to Robbie Neelima and CELTA Elaine mean Hiren felt here, it was the DUA that Allah I am always in forever in dire need of righteousness for you, from you. So Allah subhanho wa Taala every opportunity that he gives us to do righteousness, that's the benefit we get

00:06:40--> 00:07:26

out of that door. And so because of that, Allah subhanaw taala literally changed his entire life till the very end of his life. And till this day, we still honor the legacy of Musa alayhis salam, and those around him. That brings us to the next person mentioned in the Quran of the women that are mentioned in the Quran, the Queen of Sheba. bilities there isn't much that is known about her. The Quran speaks of the Queen of Sheba, also known as Bill please, she was a ruler over her people engage in political noget negotiate negotiations that are set in the jetty Lea period. So, the the time and the Shetty aren't in the system back then was very different from today. And there are

00:07:26--> 00:08:08

several stories about the kind of person she was politically how she came into that position. Some of the things that she stood for some of the things that she implemented, a lot of it is not very good. But from an Islamic perspective, none of that is authentic, because we just don't have any lineage any of those stories, but she looked at other traditions. They mentioned a lot of things that she did, lives that she threatened lives that she took in the process in order that she could get quote unquote, political office. And again, these are all stories and much of it is not verified.

00:08:09--> 00:09:00

So in in terms of the Porta N, Our story takes place in the Quran and Sunnah to Nimal. And those are the set of verses 22 to 44. And we're going to go through all of them in shall love. We're going to pause on a couple of verses, but for the most part, it's more or less just following the story as it unfolds. So this particular bird, the hoopy, it's very famous bird very common. It's got some interesting qualities about it. First of all, it's a voice. It has a very unique sound that IT projects and it's very distinct, like no other bird on the planet sounds like you. There are various breeds of the same bird. So what you see here, there are slightly different images and different

00:09:00--> 00:09:42

breeds of the similar type of bird amongst the same family. Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala choose this particular bird as opposed to any others? Again, we don't know. And quite frankly, it's not even that important, right? Like, I mean, so what if we learn a little bit about this bird or we learn about something else? It all hamdulillah when it comes to the whole animal kingdom, students and Noah does a really good job in highlighting why animals are important to us. Allah talks about how they make to speak in their own way. They're always in the form in the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. They have their own salah, they have their own cloud, they are always in forever, from the

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

time they are born till their death in some state of worship and to speak with Allah subhanaw taala. So that's the one thing we can all appreciate about the animal kingdom. So this particular bird was reported to slay men of a queen from Sheba, who let her people in shelter can worship of idols.

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

The sun and others and other things except Allah subhanho wa taala. So it was not long before the bird came and said I've found something. So this is now in Sunita Nimal for Nikita Euro buried and for Carla how to be Mel. I'm thrilled to be here to come in. So the NB Nebia in your team. So it wasn't too long before that this bird came and said, I found out something that you don't know. So somehow this bird was amongst that region came across and discovered and know something I have just come to you from Shiva with news that is Yaqeen. So this bird is now the narrator. And back then the this was considered a norm. This is something that doesn't happen anymore. Of course, animals talk

00:10:46--> 00:11:20

amongst themselves, but no human being can understand and interpret what they're saying. This was something that happened during the time of Sulaiman, Ali Salam, of course, he in terms of the prophets was the only one that could understand and conversate with animals. But some of them were limited. They say that this was something that was not prevalent, but it wasn't strange to an extent amongst the people during his time, but Sulaiman Alehissalaam was the leader. He was the one he was the expert in this area. Yep.

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


00:11:28--> 00:11:29


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

exactly. So you see, there is some sort of connection with deload Alayhis Salam, you know, he could understand and interpret the chirping and the whistling of birds and things like that, they would come they would shade him, they would interact with him, even on the day of his funeral, the orlimar they say that, the day of his funeral, there were literally flocks and flux as far as the eyes can see, of every animal you can imagine and think of who all came and gathered together in rows, so and in groups as well. So the birds were together, you know, the Tigers were together, the lions were together, elephants were together, and nobody really mixed with one another. So there was a certain

00:12:13--> 00:12:56

order that was established. And it was said at all, even when Prophet dellwood Alehissalaam would recite, from the zebra, that these birds would pause and listen to him. So there could have been some kind of interaction there. But in terms of explicit wording, understanding the feelings and interpreting he was the master at this Sulaymaniyah. Alayhis Salam it was gifted to him, of course from Allah subhanho wa taala. So this bird is saying now in the widget tomorrow at 1010 Liko home. Indeed, I found a woman ruling over them, who has been given everything she needs and who has a Magnificent Throne. So look at what he points out this bird.

00:12:57--> 00:13:46

And they're in the mat extract a lot from these a ton, most of it, we don't need to go through. But um, I will share a couple of them with you. So why is this bird emphasizing that it's a woman and she is ruling over others. So some of them are limited. They said that this is the part of the Quran where it's highlighted that generally speaking, the Shetty are frowns upon when women are in political leadership, right to an extent, they can be involved in politics. But when it comes to taking that throne, the aroma had differed on this some had allowed it many half and some disliked it, some set certain rules behind it. And that's a whole massive conversation. But it's all coming

00:13:46--> 00:14:31

from these verses. And there's only a few verses that are similar to this. This is one of the more explicit when the this bird highlights that this woman was there and she was ruling over them. So we're just going to focus on this case and in this context only. So before prior we'll actually we'll see it very soon. What exactly she was ruling over with respect to these people what she was teaching them the kind of worship that they were involved in and so on. So this bird comes and mentions all of what ot admin cliche so the second thing is that she has everything that she needs a what to her out Charlene of everything that she has the most profound item she owns. Is this Irish

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

or this throne. Okay.

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

Hola Yes. Judo Lilla so they

00:14:41--> 00:14:54

are what did to her what call Maha yesterday when Annie Shams I found her and her people prostrating to the sun. So you see this is where it manifests. Instead of Allah remember who's talking here? The bird, so the bird knows to wait.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

But she didn't rhyme. And Allah highlights that even in other suit

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

says that the animals all believe in Allah and they believe in one Creator only. So, for shaitan has made their deeds appealing to them. This is the number one trap of shaytaan. If shaitan is able to successfully detour somebody from the worship of Allah or believe in one day at the first thing that ends up happening, how that whole process starts, because a lot of people ask this question there, they ask, How is it possible that if somebody is so dedicated to one Creator, they worship one Creator, they read for one Creator, they do all of this hide all of the subtle content just for one Creator. Yet still shaitan is able to take that individual, tempt them and detour them off course to

00:15:47--> 00:16:14

something else. Because that's so strict. So focus, focus, there's just one lane one goal, one Creator, case code, there's nothing complicated about it. But still, he can take you from that path and put you in a whole different world where there are endless amount of other things you could devote yourself to, well, areas will learn. And they're really mad. They say this is the first reason how was the yellow one was shaytaan. Allah shaytaan just makes it attractive,

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

makes it appealing.

00:16:18--> 00:16:27

Think of how religions that worship other than Allah, how they quote unquote, advertise their religion as being their health.

00:16:28--> 00:17:12

What are the what's the first thing you'll start to see them do? When I worship this god, my whole life change. When I asked for this, I got it. When I prostrate it to this, I all my sicknesses went away. So it's all about putting together a package that really sells and people say, Wow, that's religion, I can get all of that. That's where I want to be. So the believer doesn't fall for any of them. So don't take it for granted that this bird highlights some very key elements of what's happening. It's not just about worship of the sun. But shaytaan also made it really attractive and beautiful for everybody who participated for sada who mine is severely for Himalaya dune

00:17:14--> 00:17:41

hindering them from the right path and or the right way and leaving them misguided. Elias Dooley Allah He led the youth regional hub for summer where it will all the way Ala Moana to fool woman totally known, so they don't prostrate to Allah. So, the idea is, why is it mentioning here? Why is it singling out? sujood? Why does it say so that they do not worship Allah.

00:17:42--> 00:18:34

You know, the scholars, they say that such that is the safe place of Tawheed. The more Sajida you make, the safer you are in guaranteeing yourself that you will die on la isla de la like this is the path you will stay on. Because such dem is the most intimate moment that we have with Allah. Right, we all know the Hadith I were closest to Allah. Think about how Sajida is done. For some people such that is just like sitting on the ground and bowing their their necks. Some people, their form of such data is literally just bowing. But for believe Muslims. Like we're taking the most visible part of our bodies. And we're touching the ground where supposedly all the dirt and bacteria and whatever

00:18:34--> 00:19:02

is there. So we try to keep it as clean as we can. But we put and dedicate ourselves because that's how important Allah is to us. We don't care about the blemishes on our face and our skin when we need to prostrate to Allah. So when the believer does them, and they do that, and they do that continuously, and the increase, and they do more of their salawat and more of their pm and Sunon and so on, the more Sajida you do, the safer you are in protecting your toe heat. Yep.

00:19:12--> 00:19:13


00:19:16--> 00:19:59

Yeah. So this is exactly a very beautiful point, right? So another thing that we can extract is you have Sulaiman Alehissalaam. There's a some students attribute him you have Yusuf Ali, his salam from the beginning of Sudan and disorder, such as talked about, you have dealt with it. He said, You literally have pretty much every prop prophet had some kind of Sagitta associated in their Deen. So the point here is that we don't want any of us to ever trivialize the importance of when we put our foreheads to the ground. Like just how important that moment we spent and and what it does not just that we're able to pour ourselves out to Allah but

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

To have that alone time, that is the most intimate alone time we will ever have with him. subhanaw taala. Right. So I pray that Allah accepts it from us. So who brings forth what is hidden in the heavens and earth and knows what you all conceal and what you reveal

00:20:16--> 00:20:17

who's talking here, by the way,

00:20:19--> 00:20:51

the birds still talking, the bird is explaining to hate now. Right, so it's all about such depth that he will extract your holy jewel Harbor, every summer harbor are the things in the sky that you can't see. But we know that they're there. So even the tiniest, tiniest galaxies that now we can see a few of them, but at least during that time, you never knew they existed, or you'd never see them, even the planets that are far away from, you know, from this planet, so on and so forth. All of that Allah will extract.

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


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


00:21:09--> 00:21:46

Absolutely, absolutely. So this is why, when this new Galaxy was discovered, why it was so significant, many of the earlier man had spoken about it, the images that came back, and they talked about, and it just all came back to verses like this. Right? We, Allah knows what we don't know, there are things hidden in our solar system, we just don't know. And it was a, it was significant. I think we should all as Muslims, be very proud that the world has been able to see or at least get a glimpse of something we already believed in. And we knew, even though we didn't, we've never seen it.

00:21:48--> 00:22:12

Allahu La ilaha illa Huwa. Pulau shell, Arlene. So now after all is said and done, Allahu La ilaha illa, whom we know the starting of this verse already, of course, it's connected to the most powerful verse of the Quran a tool called RC. So He is Allah, there is no deity worthy of worship except Him, the master of the throne, who is calling for such day now.

00:22:13--> 00:22:30

It's still who still the bird and Allah puts a moment of such. So the subject of the Quran is one thing that I really want to highlight here of how important it is, we're not going to get into the fifth of that because that's on our subject right?

00:22:32--> 00:23:12

Sajida of the quarter n is core ends way of telling you or encouraging you. Stop reading for a second and just put your head to the ground for Allah. Just make that connection with Allah subhanho wa taala. That's why with the subject of the Quran, the dilemma differ if you even have to have Waldo, even if you have to face the Qibla or not, there is a difference of opinion on it. Right? Many orlimar said those are not conditions of the subject of the Haoran, but rather Sagitta in solid, it's a different scenario, right? Because why? Pause what you're doing this whole message of Sajida and toe heat all coming from a bird. Well, it doesn't matter where it came from, at the end

00:23:12--> 00:23:51

of the day, this reminder. And this whole story is a story of importance and reflection because there was someone in power who had control, but she used it in a way that disobeyed a lump. That's a huge problem. So you believe her that still until he'd show allah how grateful you are, stop reciting put your head to the ground, right? So think of it that way to break that whole recitation and just say Alhamdulillah that I can still do this to you all love. Paul is unknown for us adopter and Quinta Meenal qldb In Sulayman now says we will see whether you're telling the truth or not.

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

Why doesn't he trust this bird?

00:23:57--> 00:24:03

Because seems like a bird knows what it's talking about. See this verse here? If this verse wasn't here

00:24:05--> 00:24:47

would we have still trust with the bird said, because it sounded like all the air yet so far. We're on point. He was talking about such data to other than Allah how that's you know, forbidden. He's talking about Allah will extract all the secrets of this world. Yes, we know that. So then the last one, Allahu La ilaha illa who are up without shouting that's the shahada is right there. Still Sulaiman Ali his Salam wants to determine if he if this bird is lying and making this stuff up. Why? Because of one very simple, basic fundamental principle for all Muslims. At the end of the day, it does not matter what you and I say.

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

What also has to be part of that is what we do. In Alladhina Ermanno always had this what after it? Why AMILO Solly hat right. Can just

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

Believe and say one thing. Now we got to see. And so really what he's saying is not just going to see if you're telling me the truth or not because I also need to confirm what you're saying. So I need to know if this is true. Okay, is have Viki Tabby Heather. So you write the letter, go with this letter, and deliver it to them, then stand aside and see how they will respond, came back, then you're allowed to do this right? Now it's a little different. Back then you were allowed to basically send a spy, that's really what he's doing, sending a spy sending a letter, and he's like, okay, hide somewhere, and just assess what people are saying what people are doing. We can't do that

00:25:41--> 00:26:21

anymore. Right. There has to there there might give very strict reasons for that. If you're involved in investigation, crypt crimes and things like that's a different scenario. But the general rule is that the court answers Wallah to justice, who to justice is when you're spying on people, and they don't know you're spying on them. And you're seeking intelligence from them or trying to get their story, but they don't know. They're just innocent. And so they're answering your questions telling you things, but they have no idea you have another agenda. So it's important not to mix this up with today's Shediac. So he writes this letter, and says, let's go see, let's see what the response is,

00:26:21--> 00:26:35

like, call it a U haul mela or in the UK, Elijah kitab. And Kareem. The Queen later announced, oh, chiefs, indeed, this wonderful noble letter has been delivered to me. So what's her first initial reaction?

00:26:36--> 00:27:19

She is impressed means that this letter was really eloquent and it was written very well you know, what's the benefit of that for us? Whenever you're doing Darwin in general, you have to know your stuff. That's one but the most important thing before the knowledge is well, you've got to be wise wisdom is you've got to know the right words. You've got to know how to put those words together and you've got to know your audience seems like suit Amen It isn't I'm really knows how to deal with this. So immediately, she says, Wow, this letter right came from someone noble in a woman Sulayman it is from Selena and it reads, know what, you know who Bismillah R Rahman Rahim.

00:27:20--> 00:28:09

So, this is where some of the scholars of tiff COC This is what caught her attention. She had never heard Bismillah R Rahman Rahim before. So it's either this a or or the one prior. It's either the eloquence and the beauty of the letter in and of itself. Or it's the fact that somebody out there started off their conversation by attributing their love and mercy to one Creator like, well, I've never seen and heard anybody start anything like this. So this could be the point of eloquence, and both of them are a possibility. Hola, hola. Hola, yo, Toony Muslim you don't be arrogant with me, but come to me fully submitting to Allah.

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

Is that a?

00:28:13--> 00:28:26

Is that an appropriate way to start the letter? Let's assume that anything else in between isn't out there. It went from Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim and first sentence with a man says Allah He sent a letter Anwar, they don't be arrogant with me.

00:28:27--> 00:28:32

Does that sound appropriate? Like if I started to have a conversation with Anonymous and be like, Listen,

00:28:33--> 00:28:37

don't be arrogant. You need to worship one Creator. You gotta.

00:28:39--> 00:29:09

I mean, I might get punched in the face. I might hear something. I don't know. Right? Doesn't sound polite. Why am I highlighting this? There are some of our young students that get overzealous and excited, you know, when they want to present the deed and so on. Like, over the years, I used to see it all the time. Even coming into the message, if they saw something they didn't like, or they heard something they liked, it could stand up and shout and just get very loud and inappropriate, right?

00:29:10--> 00:29:34

And believe it or not, sometimes they use evidences like this. To validate their behavior of being loud, and to the point is like, slay him out. He didn't say, Oh, hi, how are you? My name is so and so he just went straight to the point. Don't worship anything but Allah be Muslim. So that's what we're doing. So what's the response to that?

00:29:36--> 00:30:00

Two things? Yeah, definitely. There are prophets, right, but two things. Number one, we don't to know, like nobody's read this letter. So we don't know if there are things in between. The Koran is always highlighting and giving what is important to us. The other details in between that are not important are never highlighted in Quran. So the fact that the area doesn't

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

Say that, okay, we skipped and came to this sentence or there were things sent but this is the Quran doesn't emphasize nothing. So to assume that this is how the letter start fundamentally is simply wrong, right? You don't know that. Secondly, this could be the culture and time or the place of how you communicate. You just got to the point anyway, right? There are cultures that do this till this day. I don't want to say wearing kiss we have some viewers from that part of the world. But there are some places in the world that I visited where straight to your face to the point you like it, you don't too bad. That's just the way that people are. Okay.

00:30:41--> 00:30:42


00:30:43--> 00:30:45

call it a U haul mela

00:30:47--> 00:31:32

mela tone mela Oof. Tony, F Tony. Call it a U haul mela F Tony fee Emery merkon to call TR art and Umrah Tisha, don't call Aluna Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, lube. Seems shady. Then. Well, Mr. Louis Leakey foundry mother, Maureen. She said, Oh, chiefs advised me in this matter. So she goes to her party. Okay, her administration if you'd like she doesn't know how to deal with this. Which means that there is quite a bit that must have been written in this letter, not just come to me and don't be arrogant. There's a sense of intimidation. Now. She's feeling right. So she's like, chiefs tell me what to do here what to say, For I will never make any decision without you. All EU nationals. So

00:31:32--> 00:32:17

they said, We are a people of strength and great military might, but the decision is yours. So decide what you will come in. So what are they indirectly hinting? If you want us to go over there and take care of him? We'll go over there and take care of him. You got a pretty strong military behind you. So no worries. All that didn't know maloca in the dark Hello, Korea. 10. F said to her, she reasoned and she said Indeed, when kings invade a land, they ruin it, they corrupt it and debase its nobles, they really do. So. This is where they're limited. They say there was higher in her. So to take her entire legacy, and just focus on all the evil and and decisions that she made. How she

00:32:17--> 00:32:53

got to that position is just unfair. Alright, so yeah, and I mean, she didn't have to do all of this. But she's genuinely like concerned and she's verbalizing to her administration. Look, if we do that, we're gonna destroy the good that's in that line. And this is gonna happen for sure. What Can daddy KFR do like it's gonna happen, or in the morcilla twin lamb idea. Instead, I will send him a gift and see what he responds my envoys will return with. Okay. So this is her gesture or her response.

00:32:54--> 00:33:13

That remember, they mentioned a few things here, but nothing that we really want to highlight. It's just more or less could have been her culture or how she dealt with anybody who needed her attention. The first thing she would do is respond with some sort of idea or gift. Other religions interpreted this that this was her way of bribing people.

00:33:14--> 00:33:57

This was a form of bribery and how you she convinced you to follow her fella Majah Sulayman or call it a to me doing any b mal Fermat Teddy Allahu Hiram mimma to Cumberland Tomba de Atacama tough rahoon on the chief and what came to him Sulaiman said you offer me wealth. What Allah has granted me is far greater than what he has granted you. So no, it is you who rejoice in receiving the gifts. So he's just politely saying I don't want it. I don't need it. It's not important to me. He only cares about one thing, okay. It will Jerry lay him. Look what he says go back to them. So whatever these gifts were, I don't care. Just go back. Leif.

00:33:58--> 00:34:45

felanitx Tiana home be julu didn't let Kybella whom behalf we will certainly put together and mobilize against them forces which they never resist. So he's saying he's talking about the same thing. Okay. He has some military support on his side. And she has on her his her side? How did he know that from her? Chances are was in this letter that she sent back to him with the gifts. Okay. So now that he knows them, he responds and he says, I'm going to destroy you. I have a military you've never heard of unseen in your entire life. This is the kind of responses we're not allowed to have. Why? Because all of this has been abrogated in the *tier of the prophet Ali salatu salam.

00:34:45--> 00:34:55

Okay. So, that's one way of looking at the another way is that he has the advantage over her in terms of military. What is the

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

second gen and what the Sulayman

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

Have two things. He controls the gin and the wind. Three things one more.

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

What's the third thing?

00:35:08--> 00:35:50

The ants room? Yes, the animals. So he's got the weather on his side. He's got the gins on his side, and he's got the animals on his side. So that's three things that immediately outweighs what she has. Right. So he says, well, a nuclear agenda who made her a villain we will drive them out. From there in disgrace, you know, a villain is like, an I have this little staple sitting here, right? And it's like, there's no value to the staple. Chances are like when I'm done here, I'll just throw it away. Nobody would know about it. Nobody will ask where's that poor staple that was sitting on the port nobody would care. That's called a villa. Something that is so trivial. Nobody gives value

00:35:50--> 00:36:24

to it. So well whom salt heroin so that's the first thing he says I will humiliate them in disgrace. Will whom saw here when they will be forced to submit themselves with me saw herself here and literally means to make somebody small. Okay. It's one of the traps of shaitan ensue little out of shaytaan a bliss says to Allah that I'm going to make them feel solid when as well. So when somebody loses confidence in themselves, and you know, they they lose all of that.

00:36:25--> 00:36:51

optimism, self esteem, and they just really, really hate who they are and what they've become. For whatever reason. Part of that is from shaitan. Make you feel you're useless and you're miserable. That's called salty rune in Quran. Okay. Kalia, you hold mela or you commit teeny be outershell Coppola, Tony muslimin. So so the man asks, Okay,

00:36:53--> 00:37:00

which one of you can Oh choose which one of you can bring me her throne before they come to me in full submission? Who is Sulaiman talking to here?

00:37:03--> 00:37:04


00:37:08--> 00:37:57

Okay, so, Mina, his own administration somewhere, we don't know exactly what it's made of wood, like what it comprises of whether the genes are there or not. But the assumption is why because of the next versus, okay, that there are genes present there. But so far, we don't know that gins are there, right? So oh cheese, which one of you can bring? So now he wants to bring his otter so again, he somehow earlier on the bird informed him that she has this odor that is amazing, right? So he's targets that color if free to mineral Genie. tikka behave popular as your taco mummy McCormick, what unique Valley healer can we use? I mean, so the mighty gin if Rita is the name of like, the super

00:37:57--> 00:38:08

virgin, okay, so if origins were like strong, this is the body builder of origins, is called a fleet. So this is a fleet response. And he says,

00:38:10--> 00:38:25

take me a cabinet and Tacoma McCormick, I'll bring it to you before you even stand up from your chair that you're sitting on in the alley here. Luckily, you know, I mean, and I am so strong you can trust me, I'll get this done. No problem at all. Okay.

00:38:26--> 00:38:46

paella, the indoor environmental Kitabi to be here popular and you have the Laker power folk. So you see what's happening already. The one who had knowledge of the Scripture said, so, this one year knew the ins and outs of getting by the way where is to lay man right now? What country?

00:38:49--> 00:39:02

Palestine? Yeah, so he's in Palestine in Jerusalem. Where is the place in Yemen? Right. So now, from Palestine to Yemen, how long is that flight today?

00:39:03--> 00:39:18

I believe it's about an hour, hour and a half, something like that. Someone told me right. I checked two years ago. I haven't checked in time recently. So from Palestine, to Yemen to Palestine, you're looking at about let's just for the sake of this discussion, let's say it's somewhere around two hours, okay.

00:39:20--> 00:39:21

That's a long flight.

00:39:22--> 00:39:59

Two hours, okay. He says he'll bring this out. Now, there are stories that Imam or the Herbie and other scholars they say that these are stories that are passed on, right not necessarily like Hadith that are very, but they're interesting. Her Irish was probably the size of it. This entire building, that's her throne that she sits on. This gin is gonna go now. Pick that up. fly it over to Palestine. Public in your today Laker perfect before you would

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


00:40:02--> 00:40:05

So how in the world that does Jen do that?

00:40:07--> 00:40:15

Yeah, let's go there, man. I used to be a rock you know that. I used to be an exorcist band. So I love this conversation. Tell me what you think

00:40:19--> 00:40:19


00:40:22--> 00:40:28

cabling? Because he says the concert important. Right? So it's interdimensional

00:40:30--> 00:40:39

on one hand. On the other hand, it's time freezes because it passes more than the speed of light. Right? So you can get one place from nothing from one place to the other.

00:40:41--> 00:40:45

You won't even know accounting system right now. for that.

00:40:50--> 00:40:58

Yes, he ascended from Mecca to Jerusalem, when to set it up above the throne where he meant a lot of specialties.

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

He came back.

00:41:02--> 00:41:13

Yes, there's a lot of other details here. But he seems like at that point, when, when they talk about scholars with the Scripture, they had this knowledge because the three came before him so myself.

00:41:17--> 00:41:18


00:41:22--> 00:41:24

So is it safe then to

00:41:25--> 00:41:35

I don't want to assume or say but think that perhaps maybe the movement of shale teen and gin.

00:41:36--> 00:41:49

Nobody saw this auto flying across the sky? Okay. You didn't look up and you wouldn't see anything. You literally before you blinked. It disappeared from there. It arrived here?

00:41:50--> 00:41:55

Is it safe to say that if there's some form of energy

00:41:57--> 00:42:01

involved where a jinn can take something that is solid like matter,

00:42:03--> 00:42:41

and somehow turn that into some kind of energy where it becomes matter in another place. So this is one probability, right? Again, these are areas we simply don't know. But it's very interesting when you look at a little bit of science, and you try to connect some dots, that an especially some of the things that you highlighted as well. It's really interesting that it's highlighted before you blink your eye. The other one says before you stand up. So we're talking about literally split second moments here. Suleiman then what ends up happening,

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

fella Malraux, whom was caught Mr. K runner in the whole color has been fugly rugby, okay? So when Sulaiman saw it, it came, it's placed right before his eyes, he thanks Allah. Why does he do that?

00:42:58--> 00:43:09

Why is it the first thing that Sulaiman does? And then he says, Lea balloony ash Kuru asked for his testing me to see if I'm grateful or not.

00:43:10--> 00:43:12

Why? Where's the test here?

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

Because it's very easy for somebody

00:43:17--> 00:43:27

to get caught up in the conversation of how powerful Jinns are. And forget the one who makes them that powerful. And so that's where

00:43:28--> 00:44:14

I don't want to say I've I've met people that who worship Sheltie and and Jin, but I've had some interesting conversations over the years okay with some people. And these were some of the first things they mentioned, why they worship the devil is, is so powerful and to get into a lot of some of the conversation we just had, about the speed of light and energy and and and, and they're amazed by this. And they claim that they can prove the speed they can show it they can interact with this Sheltie and engine and really show that reality. So this must be something worthy to submit to. So the fact that his response is, this is from Allah, and Allah testing me to see if I'm grateful or

00:44:14--> 00:44:14


00:44:15--> 00:44:34

Crawford here does not mean that he's leaving Islam. One of the names of being ungrateful in the Quran is also careful. Okay, because Cuf being ungrateful to Allah lead somebody took took her for it leads them to leaving the fold of Islam. Yep.

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

So again

00:44:42--> 00:44:50

there is one, there is a couple actually, there's a couple of Tafseer as I came across that mentioned that nothing therapy, nothing really firm about it

00:44:55--> 00:44:57

wasn't that big?

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


00:45:04--> 00:45:27

Yeah, yeah. So this goes back now to the famous verse in Bukhara where Allah subhanaw taala sent those angels at the time of Sulaiman Alehissalaam. Right? And they weren't him and taught him right then and there in that same long verse, I believe it's 108 or something like that, right? 106 or 108. And it does mention for the person who commits Sarah

00:45:28--> 00:45:52

is that is Kufa, they fall into that disbelief. So certainly that role that rules been established since then. But the implications and some of the fifth behind it later, those details came along later, with the profits already sought to slim. But the ruling itself, it's always been cool for now, go back to the time of fit Island and so on. Alright, there's a lot of stuff happening there as well.

00:45:53--> 00:45:58

So what, what's the ruling on that then was that like, okay, Sahara, or

00:45:59--> 00:46:01

what's the story there?

00:46:04--> 00:46:11

So it's not Sahara in how we know what Sahara is today. Right. But it was literally magic.

00:46:18--> 00:46:30

No, that's the first goal of black magic. So sit here, the first primary goal why it's used is for that mentioned in that versus little bucket. Alright. So.

00:46:37--> 00:47:16

Yeah, yeah. It wasn't necessarily to, like, instill, yeah, it not to instill the sort of pain and harm that it's caught that causes people today? No, it was more of a type of like trickery and delusion. Yeah. You think that you see, but it's not really there. Yeah. And that's why I think we talked about this one when we talked about the pyramids and so on, right. And grand structures like that, during then how Till's till today? It's still a massive question mark. And Allah knows best. I mean, it's just kind of something I have in the back of my head that perhaps maybe some sort of magic was involved, right.

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


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


00:47:34--> 00:47:38

Yeah, see archaeologists needs to needs to be in this class, you know, seriously.

00:47:42--> 00:47:42


00:47:44--> 00:47:45

Just consider

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

specifically sundown to test people again. So this was not uncommon during times

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

to come in

00:47:56--> 00:48:06

to have these kinds of these kind of gyms that can perform these kind of things, to reemphasize so that the public run him knows that this is not from

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

us in charge.

00:48:09--> 00:48:11

Would it be fair to say that during

00:48:12--> 00:48:13

this time, that it was

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

kind of nothing normal, but it was sort of, you know, expected for Pete?

00:48:27--> 00:49:13

You know, we were talking about this earlier, as well, there is a very good possibility, because some of the scholars and the Tafseer of the surah mentioned that, that this idea of, you know, having things disappear from one place to another, was not necessarily foreign. And the ability to interpret and understand animals was not something foreign either. But Sulaiman Alehissalaam was the known was the expert who reached to a point that nobody had ever seen. So his skill and ability to do all of this is really what separated him from what people were accustomed to at that time. But the possibility the existence of this Oh, that element, they say very possible.

00:49:14--> 00:49:16

Yeah, yeah.

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

It's very possible.

00:49:21--> 00:49:22

What's incredible.

00:49:24--> 00:49:25


00:49:27--> 00:49:28


00:49:31--> 00:49:43

description of that engage. It's beyond human imagination, but it's also really, really incredible. When you see the reports of the Sahaba none of them question Prophet, how did it happen?

00:49:44--> 00:49:51

You never hear anybody question that. Is it possible? How did the Morocco do that? If it's just it's almost like when you read their accounts?

00:49:53--> 00:50:00

Yeah. 100% And there's, there's there's tons of examples of that reaction.

00:50:00--> 00:50:12

You know as well where nobody's really asking how how do you know do you have any proof people just understood it once he said it they knew and this is part of his you know the quality of the Prophet Tarly so to some being al Amin

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


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


00:50:22--> 00:50:25

People ended that you have to name in that furniture

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


00:50:33--> 00:50:42

yeah, yeah. A lot more Stan. So this part of the ending of the A is is really important for all of us. So the first thing is he thanks Allah.

00:50:43--> 00:50:58

Then he says, Woman check out off a NEMA. Yes, go to enough See, just to set the record straight that whoever is grateful remember that they're doing it for themselves. Allah doesn't benefit from us showing gratitude to him. All right, that only happens between us.

00:50:59--> 00:51:07

A woman Cafaro for in Nairobi, honey Yun Karim but whoever is ungrateful then Allah is self sufficient and most generous. Okay.

00:51:09--> 00:51:22

This is so tiny. Okay, I can't do that right now. Call the Nicki Rula option number attached to it and telco Domina Latina la doon Fela merger. De la a haka, Otto Shuki. Pilot.

00:51:23--> 00:51:36

Who will Tina Copley Hakuna muslimin Okay, so So a man that says, disguise her throne for her, so we may see whether she will recognize it, or she will not be able to. Okay.

00:51:38--> 00:51:54

So when she arrived, it was said to her is your throne like this? She replied, It looks to be the same. We have already received knowledge of Solomon's prophethood before this miracle, and I've submitted to Allah. So what is Sulaiman? Alehissalaam trying to do here?

00:51:55--> 00:51:59

What is he trying to achieve by disguising her throne?

00:52:00--> 00:52:12

He definitely altered it. He changed it. He may have repainted redesigned it, certain things, he changed about it, then you send it to her, and he wants to see if she'll recognize it or not. What's his purpose? What was the point of doing that?

00:52:17--> 00:52:22

Yes, so why? Why does he need that from her?

00:52:27--> 00:52:34

Like, yes, it is. Yeah, so that's fine. So what if she said, I don't know if this is mine or not?

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

What would happen to the throne?

00:52:39--> 00:52:40

credibility to her would be

00:52:44--> 00:52:49

she wouldn't be able to take him as an actual belief that he is.

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

Okay. Okay.

00:52:53--> 00:52:54


00:52:57--> 00:52:58

No, I totally agree with this.

00:53:01--> 00:53:03

Here, right. So for suing

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

a profit, or to be somewhat of a grand statute as as being something that has to be more

00:53:11--> 00:54:00

like, Yes, it's mine. But how did this come? Right? And I'm going to assume it alters a little bit for her to have that doubt in our head like, this is really minor. But then she realizes that I've heard stories of cinemas, and he does do miracles. Right. So she has to now submit in a way that it's like, yes, it's fine. It's no longer mine. Okay, good. So so this is getting closer to what some of the scholars mentioned, right? And I came up with the analogy that everybody at least you know, would understand. So imagine you get a Lamborghini or a Ferrari from someone and they lend it to you. And you use it for a few days. But when you have it, you change all the wheels you put on

00:54:00--> 00:54:16

some like cheap Toyota wheels or Honda wheels, right? You change the interior, you take out all the authentic Ferrari stuff, and you put in some, you know, AliExpress, Amazon kind of and you just, you do that and you change the oil you spray painted totally difficult. So you literally

00:54:17--> 00:54:25

cheaped out on this car as much as you could, then you drive back or you have somebody else drive it and you return it to the owner

00:54:26--> 00:54:28

and the owner after being furious.

00:54:30--> 00:54:36

The goal here is like what is that the owner going to feel or think

00:54:37--> 00:54:40

about this person and their ability,

00:54:41--> 00:54:59

their courage, you know, they're you know, they're taking something that costed me you know, X amount of dollars and treated it like garbage put aside you know, the reaction account and put aside all of that. Just want to focus on the, you know, the deeper wisdom

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

them that we're seeing here. This is her prized possession. Now this is her Ferrari. But she gets it back in it's totally different.

00:55:11--> 00:55:18

The reaction that the math says that perhaps Sulaiman Allison did that to show don't mess with me.

00:55:19--> 00:55:23

Right? Because I took your most valuable position and altered it.

00:55:24--> 00:55:35

What can you do? Accept, just accept it? And if you want it to go back the way it was, you're going to have to do the labor, not me. So he's already

00:55:36--> 00:56:21

affirmed his strength, power, authority, status, profit, all of that stuff, just through doing this one thing. This seems to be, like evident to me and others, like this seems to be where a lot of their conversation is, again, the wisdom behind this Allah knows best, but it seems like that what he what he what he was trying to do was establish himself through this way. We're not allowed to do this anymore. By the way. You even if somebody sends an idol to your house, you can just be like mud chop off the head and just send it back? No. Because Allah says in mCore, a very clear and intuitive and and that you're not allowed to curse or make fun of people who worship other than Allah. Because

00:56:21--> 00:57:01

they may do the same back to Allah just to you know, get back at you. So you don't want to create that at all. So there still has to be an element of respect, which doesn't mean you're agreeing, but you at least Okay, look, I'm Dina Camillia. Dean, you know, you got your thing, and I have mine seems like something like that is happening here. But we don't know. I haven't come across anything authentic in that sense. I just thought it was like when I'm looking at these verses. I'm like, why did he make this move? Fella Murgia tequila. So the point is now she already got this message somehow of who Sulaiman is, and she becomes Muslim. We'll stop there, her Makana Terra boomin Dooney

00:57:01--> 00:57:27

la so everything now starts to fix itself frame. She then she had been hindered by what she used to worship instead of Allah for she was indeed from a disbelieving people. Okay. Then she was told enter the palace, the lead holy la sobre la mer at YC. But who legit and Acacia veterans per year. So when she saw the hall, she thought it was a body of water.

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

Where she

00:57:31--> 00:58:05

in the palace of Sulaiman Alehissalaam. Okay. So she went walked in there with her bear. So she bared her legs, so she exposed her legs, Sulaiman it Sam said, it is just a palace paved with crystal. So she thought, and I think some of the ultra rich they still do this, right? They make the glass floors, they have sharks and fishes swimming beneath their feet. So something similar like this, except he's got crystal eyed at last she declared Subhan Allah, you know.

00:58:07--> 00:58:16

She says, Paul, will be in New Zealand too. And obviously were slim to Omar Suleiman or Abdullah Al Amin, I have certainly wronged my soul, like I really messed up.

00:58:18--> 00:58:36

Now I am going to fully submit, submit myself along with Sulaiman to Allah, who is the master of all. So she saw something of beauty that really impressed her to the point where nobody else could do this. Now, here's the thing.

00:58:38--> 00:59:02

She saw something like a dunya, type, materialistic, the things that we always discourage the conversation or the reason why you become Muslim. You don't look at how rich Saudi is and into how long and how beautiful is a bit like, there's got to be the truth is how time is so beautiful. I want to become Muslim. Because when somebody does that, what are we going to tell them?

00:59:03--> 00:59:12

It's not accepted. You can't accept Islam just because of all this luxury. You've got to have this. So why did she do

00:59:13--> 00:59:16

you should be very obvious by now. Why did she do that?

00:59:21--> 00:59:25

She had heard before and that she had she had to leave.

00:59:26--> 00:59:39

So this is one reason that she may have already had some knowledge about who he was and about Allah and there could have the possibility it could have been that they had multiple exchanges. Okay, so that's one possibility. What else

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


00:59:46--> 00:59:55

so let's connect that to the first reason right? So she had some knowledge and then when she saw it, oh, his state of living and luxury and power and she was like, That's it

00:59:57--> 00:59:58


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


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


01:00:02--> 01:00:08

So the idea is that even today in Islam, even if you have knowledge about Islam, but

01:00:09--> 01:00:42

that isn't enough to carry you over, but when you see some beautiful scenery of something, they are like, Okay, now I'm ready to go, we will still stop that person and be like, No, you have got to be 100% only for toe heat only for worship to one Creator, whether we are poor or rich are going to do the same thing. So we can't accept that chatter. The answer to this is, this was okay, back then. You were allowed to take dunya, materialistic luxury and wealth

01:00:43--> 01:01:01

and impress and use that as a means to attract and welcome people to Islam say, Look, we the Muslims, look, we the people of Tawheed we can talk to the animals. I've got a whole army of gins here, and I've got luxury you can't even fathom or imagine. Will you then come to this religion? It was allowed them

01:01:05--> 01:01:10

to be one thing, but I think it was the ability to speak to Yep.

01:01:13--> 01:01:14


01:01:15--> 01:01:18

How much money you have, you cannot attain unless you're

01:01:19--> 01:01:21

exactly 100%. Yet.

01:01:22--> 01:01:23

This is my opinion.

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

He had never seen a

01:01:28--> 01:01:29

crystal. And I'm like,

01:01:31--> 01:01:31

no one

01:01:35--> 01:01:36

I cannot.

01:01:37--> 01:01:43

So this, apply that reaction to somebody seeing the Kaaba, a non Muslim seeking the Kaaba.

01:01:45--> 01:02:33

It's amazing, like, that's our treasure, you know. And when they come there, and they see everybody and I have met a non Muslim who became Muslim, because all he did was see how in Masjid Al haram, how in within minutes, millions of people broke there, fast, cleaned up, packed up, prayed, and did this all within 10 minutes. And he said, this kind of organization where nobody's given any instruction, but they're just doing it has got to be the truth. I know another non Muslim became Muslim, know what he saw King one day in a mystic ray in Toronto. And after he witnessed the Muslims praying, and then after they finished it a whole semester to go to the kind of shake hands Salaam

01:02:33--> 01:03:15

Alaikum brother salmon ecosystem, and they were just showing love to each other. That was a, it's like, when these people are so open, and you know, carrying a loving teacher, this has to be the truth, and he became becomes Muslim. So the thing is, is like, sure that is definitely a factor involved. But today, that is not a reason accepted to your your shadow will be questioned. So you see these individuals, people talk to them afterwards and said, Look, put aside what you just saw in Ramadan, what you just saw after salah, so what Islam is the five pillars? And do you accept that? And after some time, they accepted an Hamdulillah. Right, they make the turn. So the point is, is

01:03:15--> 01:03:16

that this edition,

01:03:18--> 01:03:54

this addition was abrogated. But it was I liked reading the stuff because really helps you to understand where we were, and why Islam became the last and final message, why it erased all of this, why it erased that, okay, even if you understood how gins fly and work and the power and durability still, you have to be extremely cautious. And then even if you see somebody with enormous amounts of wealth, we have people like this, by the way today. You know, we have certain leaders in the world. And by the way, like when I was a student in Saudi, we met

01:03:56--> 01:04:15

a couple of trillionaires just shopping in the local grocery store. Like I was with a few guys and you know, one of our teachers and he said you look you see that person there and like, yeah, just looks old man gray beards got a scarf. He's just going through the aisles. He owns the entire banking system of all of Saudi.

01:04:16--> 01:04:26

And here he is literally almost a trillionaire just and there apparently were a few of them like this. So the point is there are people who have this wealth but

01:04:27--> 01:04:52

you cannot use wealth, power and luxury to be a driving force that keeps you submitting yourself to Islam or submitting yourself to Allah. Now Islam nullified that, you know, and so even in some cases, depending on how far it goes, they you have to take your shot all over again. Okay, so it's just interesting. And the conclusion of this is of course, below peace remains one of the most mysterious women in the world.

01:04:53--> 01:05:00

Some of the main issues that arise of how she became a ruler, her competence in the role and how this can impact Islam

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

Like society, these are all things that are nothing really authentic, that you will find with respect to her story. Which leads me to this is the last section will take about 10 minutes on this. I'm gonna let you guys go and shuffle. Okay.

01:05:14--> 01:05:32

So last week now the week before, we did mention that we're going to throw in a bunch of random fix stuff, right? Especially things that are more relative to the sisters because they're 99% of you are the sisters here anyway. And the topic itself is befitting. So

01:05:33--> 01:05:51

what do you guys think? Should we talk about this stuff? These were some questions that some students in the class here asked as well. Alright, so the first one there, so many prayers missed in my life. I have repented now. So what should I do? So, first, before I answer it, what do you guys think should be done here?

01:05:52--> 01:06:00

We're talking about years of prayer. So we're not talking about just a dozen here. We're talking about maybe hundreds or even 1000s of prayers.

01:06:01--> 01:06:04

What should what would you advise this person to do?

01:06:06--> 01:06:06

Yeah, let's hear.

01:06:17--> 01:06:17


01:06:18--> 01:06:20

adjusted to

01:06:24--> 01:06:25

the previous

01:06:27--> 01:06:28

Gotcha. Yep.

01:06:33--> 01:06:36

So you're basically praying like 1020 times a day?

01:06:38--> 01:06:41

That's hard. You're right. But that's hard.

01:06:44--> 01:07:22

So you're absolutely right, that is definitely an opinion that totally suggest that after all, the compulsory prayers, try to throw in as many additional Torah cards for the cards that you can, and make that up and try to connect it with the prayer you just finished. But that was the problem that those who tried that way, they simply could not keep up. It was too much, you literally some people finding them found themselves praying 20 and even 30 times in a day, and after like a week, they literally collapsed, they just couldn't do it. Okay, so we have that one option. That option is great, though, if it's just a few Salawat here and there.

01:07:28--> 01:08:09

Catch later. So, this is another opinion that try to take advantage of the Most Blessed places and times of the year and maximize that with Salawat. So if you can go to Umbra Prix in the hot on both homes, so the Haram in Mecca 100,000 Harmon Medina is how much wounds 1000 Right? So if you can try to get all the Salawat there and of course domestic leukocytes 500. That helps. The problem with that is not everybody's gonna get to Mecca. Not everybody's gonna get and chances are the people who miss prayers are not the people that we're thinking about our morale and hedge anyway.

01:08:10--> 01:08:12

Right? So

01:08:13--> 01:08:14

we need a solution

01:08:16--> 01:09:04

that really works for everyone across the board. So there's two things scholars say here. Number one, when you miss something intentionally and carelessly because you don't see it as important that can never be made up. You just have to repent and pray that Allah will forgive you. Right? So whether it's prayer, whether it's a Ramadan fast, you can never make up something that you intentionally ignore. You tension only choose to say this is not important. Some scholars like Sharath AMI and Rahim Allah was really strict about this. He said that if you intentionally missed one prayer of the day, you have to do your shahada all over again. Because the Prophet Allah salat

01:09:04--> 01:09:46

wa salam says, the thing that separates us and them is prayer. So he's basically saying the thing that makes you a believer and a cathode is prayer. So you missed one. He says it clear out their catheter, if you want. So if you miss the little heart intention, but you want to go pray, awesome, you have to take your shahada again, that's one very valid opinion, many are the most supported them. So that's the first thing if it's intentional repent. And the second option is that do what you can and ask Allah to forgive you. Especially when it's a significant amount, do what you can. Some of them even said that you don't have to make it up at all just seek Allah's forgiveness

01:09:46--> 01:09:59

because it wasn't intentional. Right? You just you didn't know or you know, whatever the case is. So that's with respect to the first one. Okay, so you have at least few of the options that you've mentioned. Those are definite options as well.

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

What if it doesn't work out, then by all means, whatever you can, and insha Allah just keep asking Allah to forgive you, Allah will never hold us accountable for the things we cannot control. Okay?

01:10:11--> 01:10:22

So again, same same idea, but the first yet same idea, same principle, it can never be made up. But you should still make it up and hope that Allah will forgive you.

01:10:23--> 01:10:50

Can I pray while sitting in the car if there is no masajid close by in the prayer time is about to end or even on airplanes. So before we get to the aeroplane part, what about sitting in the car? You know, because of the profit, it starts with sentences. Like how important the Salah is, the one thing that brings you closest to Allah is a solid or low octane, you pray on time. So what if the time is leaving? And you're nowhere near msgid? Can you just pull over and just pray in your car?

01:10:52--> 01:11:06

So the idea is this. You're not allowed to come out of the standing position of prayer unless you have a valid reason. So you can't pray sitting down unless you have a reason to do that.

01:11:07--> 01:11:27

Only the compulsory prayers we're talking about the Sunnah and NFL the rules are a little bit more loose with them, right? But when it comes to the font, the priority is if you are able to stand you have to go and find a place to pray and standard pray. This is not just Well, I can always just pray in my car. No.

01:11:28--> 01:11:38

They are limited. They said like the valid reason. So like if you happen to be in a place where it's a bit dangerous. You don't want to get out of the car. That's different. That's a valid reason. Bring your car. So what about the Qibla?

01:11:41--> 01:11:42

Yeah, and what about if it's wintertime

01:11:43--> 01:11:44

and it's time

01:11:46--> 01:12:10

same thing, same rule. Try to find a place safe warm that you can pray. Okay. And again, this will risk more than likely you will end up driving and miss that time for prayer. You're excused you're forgiven for that inshallah because why? It's minus 40 degrees, you can just pop out and pray. You've got to find someplace that's a little bit warmer and safe to do that right?

01:12:13--> 01:12:50

Or neither fuddled. Now, if you want to pray a couple Sooners or you want to pray a couple of methods, the rules are totally different. You're absolutely allowed to sit and do that. You can, even when it comes to Neff and some of them, they see that even while you're driving you can you know, so you're driving on the 401 Allahu Akbar Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil Alameen or Rahmani? Raheem, Maliki Ahmed Deen, you can Arabic and you know you're changing. Yeah, you can pray your whole couple rakaats practice your Quran all good with Neville. Because again, the rules are all totally different. You remember the hadith of our Prophet alayhi salatu salam that when you hear a salaam

01:12:50--> 01:12:52

that you respond doing this.

01:12:53--> 01:13:02

The biggest mistake people make with that is they do that in fuddled, the hadith is only talking about sunnah and Nephele prayers, you're not allowed wells, you're praying fodder

01:13:03--> 01:13:04

to do that.

01:13:05--> 01:13:41

So it's just important to make that separation. The fuddled is complete from A to Zed with all the rules. Everything has a strict rule attached to it, right? So you can't toy with that too much. What about airplanes now. So here you are sitting on a plane, you can just get up and walk. If there's turbulence happening, and it's going on for two and three hours. seatbelt sign is on you can do nothing. You're not even close to the Qibla you're not even in that direction. So and then you have if you're like me, you have one ladies here, one ladies there. You can change your seat. It's a packed flight. So what do you do when it's time to pray?

01:13:43--> 01:14:23

You pray period, since there's a complete exception to this, all these rules total except, you know, some Muslims would they do? And I don't advise people to do this. I never advise them. Well, even when you're on a plane, they'll get up off their seat, you know, all seatbelt sign is off. Okay, fine. They'll go by the emergency exit area where there's a little bit of legroom, and they'll literally tell the passengers Excuse me, sir, I just want to pray. And literally Allahu Akbar, and they'll have like a little jemar of two or three people. Don't do that. Because first of all, you're not required to do that when you're on an airplane and you're in that scenario. Secondly, always

01:14:23--> 01:14:48

remember, when you cause inconvenience and disruption to people around you. It's the first sign, whatever it is you're doing, it's wrong. You're losing reward. So if you end up praying in the middle of a hallway that people use or on the sidewalk, or in this case in the aisle or you're inconveniencing people on a flight, that's the first sign you have to know this is not correct. This is not from this. Okay? Yeah.

01:14:50--> 01:14:59

Can you just shed some light on the time of prayer? Why philosophize? Says that prayer I think this card until I know when we talk

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


01:15:01--> 01:15:02

see solar is at one.

01:15:04--> 01:15:49

But our hands went up there starts right? And save for now it's about 530 ish, right? The time of prayer is that 145 When the Jamaat happens, or just before 545 When the time Foster is gonna start? So you're referring to the hadith of praying on time, right? What is considered to be on time is it the entrance of that prayer is that when the gemera starts, which is usually 1015 minutes later 10 and 15 minutes is not a big deal, that is still considered the beginning of that solid, except maybe for mother robots pushing. So there really might give some leeway even if you start Maghrib two or three minutes earlier than domestic down the road, that's fine. It's not a big deal. There is no

01:15:49--> 01:16:29

exact precise time for any smaller there's always going to be a minute off here and a minute to offer there and that's completely fine. So there is some room so what they were the method they say is what is meant to Isla walk t here when you know for a fact for certain without any doubt. The time for the solid is like we're in it, it's entered. Once you can say that, that's that's your starting time. Now let's say you messed it down the road already finished prayer when you just realize okay, now the time started and then you look down the street and say people are leaving the Masjid. That's fine.

01:16:30--> 01:17:03

Absolutely fine. So I love what you hear is when you know what the signs are. And you start as soon as that those signs kick in. Now we don't have to look for the signs anymore, right? You have all these apps you have to sign timings for prayer every Masjid literally in this part of the world that shared the same timezone will have similar timings for their Salah anyway, you're never going to see a masjid praying the horrid like 3pm Okay, so you're always safe. Choose a reputable app.

01:17:04--> 01:17:23

One that's, you know, well known popular. It's validated by scholars and just stick to that and you'll always be in the safe zone. Insha Allah right. So you don't necessarily like it's not a big deal. And shout Lauren. Let me just take two more and then we'll pause Inshallah, right. Can I pray while wearing pants? Tight pants? So this is of course, well, this is for both men and women.

01:17:25--> 01:17:54

No, you can if there's a long top that goes over it and it covers all the outer. That's absolutely fine. Okay. But just to have that alone. No. So you know, sister can put like an alibi over it or something. Whether she's allowed to wear that or not, in general is a different conversation. Right? It's asking the sister who asked this question was in the class so she just asked specifically about prayer. So um, that's that I'm going to add to this. So what about if your home can you dress like that and just pray

01:17:57--> 01:17:58

nobody's gonna see you.

01:18:00--> 01:18:03

So why can't you just wear that and

01:18:06--> 01:18:07


01:18:12--> 01:18:58

So, there are like, some limitations then when it comes to prayer. Because Allah still sees you when you're not praying and you're at home when you're wearing whatever. Right? Allah still sees you when we're in the shower or in the bathroom. So there seems to be and you're absolutely right. By the way, there are lament they say that when it comes to Salah, the Sunnah is to present yourself in front of Allah with the best etiquettes and part of the etiquette is you wear something reasonable, something appropriate, whatever that is, if you're able to do you know that some scholars say that Salah is invalid if you pray with your sleeping, clothe your pajamas or something, he said it's

01:18:58--> 01:19:41

invalid. Because why you've been sleeping on that you have no idea what you've been up to where your hands have gone and and and and and so when you take a pause, and you think just how important it is of what you wear, when you pray, it's it's incredibly important, right? And then so the general rule is wear whatever you want to wear wear as long as it's clean, of course, and it covers well, so wearing pants and so on. You should never have this especially in prayer. And it should be covered with something loose or at least just along top or something that's totally fine. Insha Allah and the last one we'll do is do we have to have partitions between men and women in the masjid? We I

01:19:41--> 01:19:41


01:19:46--> 01:19:59

a lot of people ask this question, you know, obviously because you know, they'll come here or elsewhere. There's a lot of massages that don't and there are quite a few that do of course and then there are some that have even like separate entrances. There's even a one mystery I went to that has

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

Separate parking lot, like they took the same parking lot to split it for brothers and sisters, or like family and so on so.

01:20:09--> 01:20:17

So that's actually for number four. That's why you would have partitions. It's just to give the sisters their privacy.

01:20:18--> 01:20:20

Like, I personally think it's a great idea.

01:20:21--> 01:21:02

Like thinking that it must be there. But I think it's great that sisters could have a bit of privacy, right? If they want to adjust their hijab or something or whatever, right, they can do that. And still, they don't have to leave the entire room, go into the bathroom, stand in line, and wait, and there's 27 other people there and she's trying to just like, do whatever she needs to do, right. So it's not necessarily a bad thing. But the scholars say there are conditions to what a partition should look like. She must be able to see the gemera She has to be able to hear the microphone clearly and have access and be able to see the Imam just as much as the brothers do. That

01:21:02--> 01:21:22

part of the whole film is still like there's some messages that really need help with that. Because usually, the sisters area if they have a separation is like a closet somewhere with like a broken TV, or the microphone can only get a Salam or Aleikum at an optimum, she misses the whole hotbar so it's, it's frustrating in that sense, right?

01:21:23--> 01:21:31

But to have a partition in general, there's it's always beneficial to them always, if

01:21:36--> 01:21:50

so, this is what I was going to come to so the profit I saw to them there was none was nothing was open, just like how we have it here. You know, I'll tell you something, I'll leave you with this. Now inshallah. When I got to Medina, and I went to the Prophet's mosque for the first time,

01:21:51--> 01:21:59

I went over to the end and I saw the partition for the ladies section, right? It was a solid wall, you couldn't see nothing.

01:22:00--> 01:22:44

And after a couple of years, I went back in the harem and all of it was destroyed. And they replaced it with this beautiful wood partition. And it was all see through so now you're walking in you can see all the sisters this is the Prophet's Masjid. So from there to this why did this happen? And you know, it took some time for the men to like be able to walk and not like you know collapse and fail oh my god I just saw they took a while so you know what they end up doing? They end up putting police officers guarding the partition just to keep them and get going get going because they were like what is this what's going on? How can you guys how condenses profits missed it not realizing

01:22:44--> 01:22:54

that's actually closer to the sooner than what it was before? Think about it? Why are you creating such a separation

01:22:56--> 01:22:57

just because there's a stairs

01:22:59--> 01:23:37

Allah created them Nachi they're not a you know a default of anything that went wrong Allah put them here the same way that Allah put you they have the same right to be here to pray as you do. So why are you covering their presence you know and their interaction with the Salah the lectures and so on it gets I have a whole long you know, conversation I was I can vent on it for hours because at the end of the day the solid partitions and the separate inches I personally think that it brings more harm than good for for the overall community. Yeah.

01:23:38--> 01:23:39


01:23:42--> 01:23:43

ladies can turn

01:23:44--> 01:23:48

off the love the demand when they arise from their situation

01:23:49--> 01:23:51

and then they can complete it

01:23:59--> 01:23:59


01:24:06--> 01:24:16

I'll give you a simple example. Just imagine we were at a masjid where it was complete separation. And the mic system broke or turned off. Electricity went down and stirring the salah.

01:24:17--> 01:24:18

What did the sisters do?

01:24:20--> 01:24:58

There's going to be 27 Imams amongst them. Everybody's just going to do their own thing and reasonable look at what has happened. Do you know what happened? Do we go in a little core are still praying what happened? So like even logically common sense doesn't allow the whole system to function properly but higher inshallah you don't met Allah subhanaw taala continue to teach us the deen keep us together in sha Allah keep us upon a path of wisdom and knowledge in sha Allah humma Amin Subhanak Allahu mohammedia shadow Hola Hola. Hey, learn to stop recover to really, I think for now what I'll do is we'll be back here in person next week one more time. And if you know this, most

01:24:58--> 01:25:00

of the students are not here then we'll

01:25:00--> 01:25:06

Talk about just finishing up on line being the lead okay so let's meet one more time next week be at the line person okay so don't worry too late
