Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi igmi in last week I talked about the importance of cutting our nails some of the etiquettes some of the add up some of the things that we have perhaps heard when we were children growing up things that we heard that are perhaps from the Sunnah, that may not be from the Sunnah and so forth. Today Inshallah, I want to talk about another aspect of Sahara and purification, and something that you and I we all do on a daily basis, and that is the Adam in the etiquettes of going to the restroom. So going to the restroom is

00:00:57 --> 00:01:35

something that we all do on a daily basis as part of nature. However, one thing that we have learned from the Sunnah of the Prophet of Saddam is that there are particular Sooners and practices of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that if we were to use a restroom, and answer the call of nature in the correct way, then this also can become an issue by others. So think about it. We're not only just going and taking care of our needs, but this also becomes an Ariba so Allah subhanho wa Taala and Quran he says in Allah you have better wellbeing while you hate boiling water Tahitian Allah says that Allah loves those who attain Toba, who do Toba who repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala while

00:01:35 --> 00:02:16

you're hibel, Masato hidden and those who attained purification, and may the Allah they say that what that actually means is that when a person is internally pure, then this will show and this will become manifest on the outside. But a person who is not even internally purer than the outside will show to. So this is why they say that Toba and Sahara they both go hand in hand how so? That when a person they make Toba to Allah subhana wa Taala in essence they are with their heart they are turning to Allah subhana wa Taala they are returning to Allah. And as a result of Toba, a person becomes internally pure, he becomes he or she becomes internally clean. And when a person is

00:02:16 --> 00:02:55

internally clean, then this shows on the outside so hence Toba and Mahara. They both go hand in hand. So as I said, I want to talk about some of the etiquettes of going to a restaurant this is something that not only do we have to learn them, but we must teach our children today. We live in a time in a society where modesty is starting to become abnormal. We're starting to see that our kids are losing their modesty and today's society creates his own definition of of modesty is but we know that higher what Islam has dictated as what higher is that type of higher is starting to become rarer and rarer. And we have to really hold on to our deen hold on to the Sunnah of the Prophet

00:02:55 --> 00:03:30

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I began with a hadith narrated by fasudil The Allah one where a man came to him this is a mushrik who is coming to the province of Salem with the intention of sort of mockery, that your prophet has taught you everything even going to the restroom. And at this point, seminar facility, Allahu Allah and he says yes, even going to the restroom, even something as simple or basic that you may think it is, but even something like that Rasul Allah so someone has taught us what are the things that we need to do so let's go through some of the key things that we learned from the Sunnah of the Prophet sunnah. First of all, there's a hadith in Sahih Muslim, that we

00:03:30 --> 00:04:08

learned from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he talked about the importance of making sure that when we are using the restroom, our front or back should not be facing the table. Ah, this is something that we find very often. And that's why when we are house hunting, or when we are going to any place, we should try to be a little mindful about this. Because people who are not Muslims, they build structures they build, they build houses and so forth, not understanding that whether a bathroom is if you're using the restroom, your front or your back side could be facing the fibula. That's why we have to always be careful. If you are in the process of building a house. Make sure

00:04:08 --> 00:04:45

that the bathrooms are situated in such as in such a way that neither are you facing or your front or your back is facing that they blocked. The second thing that we must learn or we must understand from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the importance of when to use a right hand and when to use the left hand. So what we learn from eyeshadow the Aloha our mother that call it kinda Rasulullah sallallahu it is something you're able to someone will feed you I think you're able to moan that the Prophet saw some he used to always love to do the good things with his right hand. So what we learn from the hadith is and we learn from you know, the other Hadith narrated by

00:04:45 --> 00:04:59

Hassan Radi Allahu anha, the, the wife of the prophets of salaam or the daughter of Omer in the hot tub. There are other Hadith narrated by a Buddha or the Allahu Anhu as well that highlight the same exact thing that he would do the good things that noble things with the right hand

00:05:00 --> 00:05:37

And he would do the you know, he would do things that are not jazz oriented perhaps, or like removing the Jassa with his left hand. So when we go to the restaurant when we're talking about touching our private area, or the genitalia and so forth and or making sure that we are trying to remove the nudges, then make sure that we use the, the left hand for that, or we don't use the right hand a lot of times, you know, we find adults we find children who are not very particular about these kinds of things. So making sure that to remove an edges or to touch the the private areas, making sure that we use the left hand and when it comes to all good things. For example, we learn

00:05:37 --> 00:06:08

from the Hadith also, for the same hadith of ISIL, the Allahu anha your head with the Yemen feet or Huri when it came to seeking purification, so for example, if you're taking a Wilson, then you start from the right side and then you go to the left side inshallah we'll talk about also some other date. One of the properties that will make will do he will start from the right side and then go to the left side, when the property is on where to cut his nails, he will start from the right side and then go to the left side, but when it came to removing edges, then he will start he will use the the left hand. We also learned from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the importance

00:06:08 --> 00:06:44

of sitting down and using the restroom. Many times you go to massage and many times we go to other public places, especially it's very sad when you go to massage and you see you're on the on the toilet seat. We must teach our children that we sit down and we use the restroom Yes, you clean the area. If you go to a public restroom like when you go to park and so forth, you may find like a toilet seat covering you can put that down in use the restroom this is what we learned from the province of some he would always sit down and use a restroom. And by the way, I must say that there are some cases some a hadith that we come across where the person did not sit down and he and use

00:06:44 --> 00:07:21

the restroom. But the Allama they explained that there was a particular situation at that time it wasn't your normal kind of situation. Because whenever there were normal circumstances that preferably someone would always sit down and use the restroom so we should sit down and use a restaurant. Now another question that does come up is that do we have to necessarily cover our heads before we go into the restaurant. Now while there are some a hadith and probably some that do say that the primary son would cover the hand the head before he would enter the restroom? Those are Hadith according to a majority they are dwarf and they are weak and there is some fallacy with their

00:07:21 --> 00:08:02

isnaad however when we study the light of the Sahaba Rhodiola one home for example obika Or the Allah one one of course we all know that how prestigious a companion he was. We learned from him that before he will go to the restroom he would cover his head and based on this many of the Aloma afterwards they would they will say that it is recommended and was the hub to cover your head shake up north AMI document Allah Allah He said the same thing in his book much more. That is most of the hub it is recommended to cover the head but it's not mandatory. scholars such as Imam Muhammad Allah Allah he says the same thing we have we have rewires from Albuquerque, the hola Juan that have been

00:08:02 --> 00:08:42

found in Santa Fe Avenue ABI Shaybah. And these are saheeli Why yet so he incorrect an authentic narrations. So we do learn that perhaps a may not be a hadith, but because the Sahaba did it, perhaps they did see it from the province on because if a book earlier on who is doing is and he's being punctual about it, that means that he must saw the property. So now he must have seen the property. So I'm doing this. That's why he's doing this. So that's why to say it is Mr. Hub, we we stick to that point and it is recommended but it's not mandatory. It's not something that as if someone will commit a crime or it is a sin to go into the restroom without a head covering. Another

00:08:42 --> 00:09:16

thing that we learned from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem, which has been found a hadith narrated by Allah saw the Allah and that whenever the Prophet is saying he would go to the restroom area, after he will go inside and he was secluded mean that he was in a in a very private space, only then he would expose his aura, we also find another Hadith of the prophets of salaam that sometimes he will sit down and he will go far away to relieve himself. So if there is a situation where we cannot find any kind of privacy, our alumni have taught us based on the Hadith of the Prophet, you go far away as far as the ways you can, where you will not find anyone and then you

00:09:16 --> 00:09:54

take care of your you take care of your need. However, I will say that in our day and age, usually you find restaurants where you can go inside, and it's a public is, I mean, it's a very private space. And you can use a restroom, but I will say that a lot of times you do go to many private mean many public areas. And there you will find that you're using the restroom and there's a slit in between people can see you and so forth. So try to use a restroom where you have the utmost amount of privacy. Also, in the same subject. I will say that especially when it comes to our homes, and I remember you know, I'll be I'll be very frank about this that, you know, this is not this not every

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

single place but you know, here in Texas, many of the homes that are newly built and so forth, you will see

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

At the bathrooms are not everything is connected so you walk into a bathroom the bathroom was a huge area, many of our walk in closets are in the back of the the bathroom. So you walk through the bathroom to the the walk in closet. So a lot of times what we see is that now the the bathroom or the toilet area is actually it's blocked off or is is off into another separate space. And there's a door to that. So it's part of the main master bath, but at the same time it has its own door. So I will say that if that is your situation, making sure that if there isn't your situation that make sure you keep the main door closed. If you have a scenario where the bathroom is closed off, and

00:10:42 --> 00:11:22

there's a door to that, then you may keep the master door bathroom open, but make sure that the door of that toilet room you can say is is closed off. Even if you are the only one there make sure that based on this hadith, we close that door and then you then you expose your aura also I will say that when it comes to the reason why this is so emphasized is because exposing your aura in front of others is goes against the teachings of higher and modesty in our deen and based on this. I will say I've given talks about this before, but I will say this especially when it comes to sports and so forth. Many of our Muslim youth they go and we know the society that we live in that people take

00:11:22 --> 00:11:56

showers in front of each other people they expose themselves. They're taking public showers in front of each other. We should teach our Muslim youth that they should not engage in these kinds of things. If they need to take a shower perhaps go to a secluded area to uphold the higher and the modesty of our deen. The next thing that we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet Salam is that whenever you would go to the restroom, you walk in with your left foot whenever you come out you you come out with your right foot before you enter you either do Allama in the outbreaker Mail Huberty. Well haba if this is because the place of the bathroom where people relieve themselves it is a place

00:11:56 --> 00:12:31

of nudges overall and that is where the shell things they say and so forth. So the the the evil Shayateen the men the male and the female the men in the women's so that's why we say alarm in the older becoming Huberty, well acaba it on our way out, we say oh Frog This is what we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem. And another thing that we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salam is that when we're using the restroom, do not be in a hurry and do not be hasty. We want to make sure that we clean ourselves completely. There is no splash of urine especially when people go to the restroom. Nowadays, in the user restroom, there are splashes of urine that come

00:12:31 --> 00:13:04

onto their body. Now they may clean their main private area. But because of those splashes, those splashes are sitting on other parts of their body. And that can make that can have a major impact. So that's why making sure that we are taking our time you don't want to be quick in and out. But you go inside you use the restroom you clean yourself properly. You don't want to spend an extended period of time there either. But you want to make sure you clean yourself properly. And because we learn from the Hadith, we're learning from a Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem, narrated by Ibn Abbas or the Allah Juan, that a man was being punished in his grave. Because of our values. I'm saying

00:13:04 --> 00:13:40

that this man who's being here in this grave, he's being punished because of not protecting himself from urine and that's why the Prophet ism says it sends you home in a bowl for in the Amata other block robbery Minho, that be protect yourself and be careful of urine. Because it does. It is one of the key reasons or the key factors that can lead to a punishment in the grave. Another thing that we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim is something that we do often and that is talking in the bathroom. We learn from the Hadith Prophet SAW Selim that do not talk in the bathroom. So people sometimes nowadays Subhanallah, they take their cell phones inside the restaurant, they're talking

00:13:41 --> 00:14:13

on the cell phone, in the restaurant, we learn from a hadith narrated by Jabba even Abdullah or the Allahu Allah and that one, once a man came to the Prophet SAW Selim, the Prophet of Islam, was in the restroom. And he began to make some the prophet that some he responded to him. But after the property, some came outside, he said that this time I respond to you, but next time, when you make sound to me, and I'm inside the restaurant, I will not respond to your slump, because we're not supposed to be talking inside the restaurant. So based on this also, you know, long time ago, I remember living in America, and there was a practice that you go to many people's homes, and you

00:14:13 --> 00:14:44

have magazine saying there are books sitting inside the restaurant. So you sit there and you basically you put yourself in a state of comfort while relieving yourself. Remember, you go to the restroom to take care of your need, and you don't spend time in taking care of your need, where you lose the objective. The objective is take care of your need, and you're out. So you don't go there. And you start you know, checking any of there are people that Subhanallah you find nowadays, that they're taking their phones inside the restaurant, and they're sitting on their social media accounts, sitting on the restroom and so forth. It's not recommended. That's not the nature of a

00:14:44 --> 00:14:59

believer. You go inside, you take care of your needs, and you are out and especially when you're inside the restroom, you don't want to be in conversations, whether someone's outside the restaurant, or even if you are on the phone. Another thing that we also learned is that making sure that we wash our

00:15:00 --> 00:15:36

And after we use a restaurant recommended to use soap that is the most, that is the hygiene the most or the highest level of hygiene that we can perhaps attain. So, I mean, some people just want to use water, that's fine you thought through water, you take care of these the Islamic aspect of the hara, but I would always recommend to soap on your way out and then also making sure that after you are done, you clean the bathroom area to make sure that whoever comes in next you've defined the bathroom in a better situation. So these are just few things that we learned from the Hadith and offices and when it comes to going to the restroom. And once again, I would strongly urge that not

00:15:36 --> 00:15:59

only do we try to apply the Sooners in our life, we're making sure that we teach our children the same thing because inshallah if our children can hold on to the Sunnah of the Prophet, then inshallah they will also convey the same thing to their inshallah upcoming generation. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who will practice a sunnah and hold on to the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim. Exactly Hola, hey, salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
