Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Alhamdulillah Hina muda Hornstein one is still cool when other Billahi min short od alfonsina woman CR Dr. Medina Maya de la dama De La da da da wa shalonda illa Hill Allahu LA City Kadosh shadow no Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira My God, My dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:31--> 00:00:36

I want to start off by posing a question, when you look at the concept of water in the Koran.

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

Does it predominantly come as something positive or something negative?

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

Positive? Okay, fantastic. Can we think of any instances when it comes to something negative?

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

is trying to punish, make the water fantastic. That's one example. So Allah subhanaw taala destroyed the people who have no one. In fact, with a difference of opinion, the people of the world with water, what else?

00:01:04--> 00:01:19

I was describing a parable of darkness. Okay, waves upon waves on layers, right? with darkness. So that's another example. There's an example of circle calf. Does anyone remember an example of sickle calf? Allah relates water to

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

water labeler home

00:01:23--> 00:01:56

example of the life of this world. And that's actually what I want to share my reflection, start off my reflection with today. Mr. McCarthy, Ramallah, he has a very nice reflection on this verse in sort of gafware, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says, and give them the example of the life of this world, like the water that we sent it down. So if we ponder and reflect upon this, why is the life of this world like water? So what is what are some of the consistencies in water that you would find in the life of this world, the first thing that you'll notice right off the bat is that you try to trap water in your hand, you'll never be able to do so it always finds a way to escape. Similarly,

00:01:56--> 00:02:34

the life of this world, you try to catch this dunya, it's always going to find a way to escape from you, meaning that you're not meant to hold on to it. Another example, he gives that the water that falls down, meaning that descends from the heavens, you'll notice that it has the ability to even like smooth out rock and flattened rock. And even you know, just take away the rock like characteristics can penetrate the rock. Similarly, the life of this world, when it constantly attacks a person's emotion, it will slowly but surely we're down to a person's email. That's another example that he gives. A third example that he gives, is that when you look at the essence of water,

00:02:35--> 00:02:43

is that water is something that is transparent, it's something that is completely see through, it's not something that you know, is

00:02:45--> 00:03:17

what's the word I'm looking for is it's not something that that is very solid, right? Where it says generally to the left of this world, that it has one state, and it's going to move on to the next state, meaning that it's not, it's not finite, right. So just like the state of water changes, similarly, the life of this world that is here today, and it's gone tomorrow, right? It's not something that remains forever. So that was a very, you know, interesting discussion that demand to be had you guys can look it up, you know, later on to further your own research. But as our discussion is on the heart, I thought it would be an appropriate introduction to that. So we left

00:03:17--> 00:03:35

off last time talking about two things the hollow tone middle hajus was the hollow tone middle who both who remembers with these two terms mean? What is the harlowton? middle Hadith and what is the hollow terminal for both? Who are members? I know you will definitely hear I know online was definitely here. The van you were here as well correct?

00:03:39--> 00:04:14

No, it's the opposite. So high def is when an event happens. And impurity takes place someone goes to the bathroom the unification dedication, that is what had that is passing of gas is helpless. And hopeless is when something that is impure gets onto your clothes. So for example, you're walking on the street, you manage to walk on like dog feces, or something like that, that is called homebirth. Meaning is not an event that happened, but it is something that gets onto your clothes, or on to your body or gets on to your body. Now, with that having being said, this leads us to our introduction in terms of the etiquette that Muslims should have when going to the bathroom and

00:04:14--> 00:04:50

educate and advocates that Muslims should have when going to the bathroom and we'll be covering eight things within the heater Allah. The first thing we want to talk about is the issue of when a man is going to the bathroom is he allowed to touch and hold his private parts with his right hand or not? Is he allowed to do so? Now what we want to understand is starting off with the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said that hadoken father, Yehuda zaccaro, who be I mean, what I mean, when I aterna first, Phil enough, when any of you urinates, he should not hold his penis in his right hand or clean it with his right hand. And when he is drinking, he should not

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

breathe into the vessel. So clearly the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given a prohibition over here you should not do this. Now.

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

The reason why the scholars differed on this issue of you know, cleaning one's self with the right hand and touching oneself with the right hand, is how do we understand the prohibitions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when it comes to matters of etiquette, when it comes to matters of etiquette, so when there's a clear prohibition in matters of the deen, then it's clear that you know that it is hard on there's no difference of opinion, the difference of opinion occurs when it comes to matters of etiquette, how should those prohibitions be under stood. So you have a group of scholars that said, any prohibition that deposit certain gifts, it should be understood as

00:05:36--> 00:06:12

it is something that is haram, until you have a proof to say that it is just something that is disliked another group of scholars, they said, We differentiate between the by that and Mama that any prohibition that is in Hebrew that we understood it, understand it as something that is held on, and then the prohibition that is more harmful, that we understand that it is disliked, until there's a proof to prove that it is something that is how long it is something to the dedication, there's a secondary proof to prove that it's actually considered how long so that is why this call is deferred on this issue. Now, to eliminate the difference of opinion, what we can say is to be on the safer

00:06:12--> 00:06:47

side, no one should be using the right hands when going to the bathroom, unless there's an absolute necessity unless there's an absolute necessity. So a person has an inlet and illness with their left arm or they have some sort of like, you know tremors in their left hand, that's something that is understandable that you're allowed to use the right hand in that situation. But outside of that circumstance, the general rule is the right hand should not be used, the right hand should not be used. So that is the first etiquette that we will be talking about that he should not, and she as well should not be touching her private parts, or he should not be touching his private parts with

00:06:47--> 00:07:23

the right hand, whether it is for the activity or the nation itself, or even for the act of cleansing even for the act of cleansing, getting into a secondary issue. Now, as a parent, your child needs to have themselves cleaned after the dedicated or you're needed, are you allowed using your right hand at that time? Or does the same ruling still apply that the left hand should be used, the left hand should be used. The general ruling is that the rulings that you apply to yourself apply to others as well. So meaning that just like you should not use your right hand for yourself, you should not use your right hand for others, you should not use your right hand for others. And

00:07:23--> 00:07:56

you see many clear narrations of the Sahaba de la home talking about the virtues of the right hand. So I live in a thought about the Allahu anhu he says my right hand is from my face. And my left hand is for cleansing myself, then of nine or the Allahu anhu. He said, ever since I give the br to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I have never lied, and have never used my right hand to touch my private parts to touch my private parts. So this shows us that the right hand It has virtue and that virtue should be respected. And it should be only be used for good things, it should only be used for good things.

00:07:58--> 00:08:35

Likewise, you have the hadith of half salad, Yolanda, the wife of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, she says that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used his high right hand for eating, drinking, making wudu getting dressed, giving and taking things. And he used to use his left hand for everything else. And he used to use his left hand for everything else, meaning that anything that can be considered positive and respectful, the right hand should be used, and everything else, the left hand should be used. Can we think of an act of cleansing? That would be an exception to this rule? What is an act of cleansing? That would be the exception to this rule?

00:08:37--> 00:09:13

Fantastic. So the using of the miswak, the scholar is different, does it take the same rule think that one should use the left hand when making the miswak or since one is using an external tool and there's not impurity there, and inshallah there's no impurity in your mouth, you know, then you don't need to use the left hand, it is permissible to use the right tent, the majority they went towards that one of the general rule is in terms of purification, you use the left hand use the left hand. Now you can counter that to though, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, when he used to take water into his mouth, within Willow, he used his right hand And likewise, when used to put

00:09:13--> 00:09:50

water into his nose, he used the right hand. So in those circumstances, certain situations where there is no fear of impurity, then there's nothing wrong with using the right hand. There's nothing wrong with using the right time. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best, it is perfectly fine to use the right hand when one is using the miswak when one is using the miswak. educator number two, is it permissible to urinate while standing orders one need to sit down? And if so, what is the reasoning behind that? Now this whole discussion revolves around two headaches. It revolves around two headings. The first of them is the hadith of Isla de la Han Han narrated by tirmidhi call it the

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

eyeshadow de la Mancha de Sala la vie New Zealand Kenya buco even further to Sadako McKenna yo boo in Dhaka Ida movie.

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

Whoever tells you that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to urinate standing, do not believe him, he only used to urinate sitting down. Now what's interesting about this narration is that the mammoth pyramid he says this is the most authentic hadith that we have on this topic. This is the most authentic hadith that we have on this topic. However, when you look inside Sohail Bukhari and Sahih Muslim you find the narration of the familiar man and how they felt and the reason and for differ in

00:10:31--> 00:10:50

how they followed your love I know and then the reason a lot of it was about to call me further in the EMA said they follow the law I know who narrated the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to a garden belonging to some people, and he urinated standing up and he urinated standing up. So how do we reconcile between these two narrations?

00:10:51--> 00:10:58

What principles are we going to use for this reasoning for that specific scenario? There must be logic behind it otherwise.

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

So what is the foundation? And what is the exception? Let's start off with that.

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

Sitting down is the foundation Why?

00:11:10--> 00:11:41

Because his wife said so like he spends most of his time they think this way is fantastic. So that is the principle that the scholars used that in mind in matters of intimate detail, the narration of the whys of the process and and will take precedence. And I showed on the last one that she's establishing a general principle that she never saw the process of them standing up and that this is like married and ready for three times. So that is what we establish as the foundation. So now this is the exception to the rule. But what is the exception to the rule teachers?

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

What do we derive from the exception to the rule?

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

It is permissible to do so with cause or without cause.

00:11:54--> 00:12:13

That is what can be deduced for sure. So the the issue of you know splashback is always an issue that one should be concerned about. But can we give legal rulings now that's too stated to you in a sitting down is something that is obligatory, and to do it standing up without just causes impermissible?

00:12:14--> 00:12:53

can we can we do that? No, we can't. And that is why in this situation, we can say one is definitely better than the other. But we need to look at the reasoning behind this commandment or this action, not commandment, but behind this action. The Apostle Salaam is obviously showing us the fear of splashback that, you know, when the person is standing up, there's a much greater chance that the urine will splash back upon one's clothes or upon one's body and that is why it is better to do so sitting down. It is better to do so sitting down and the narration of how they follow the law. I know it teaches us that it is permissible to do so with the following conditions. One is that one is

00:12:53--> 00:13:29

able to protect themselves from any splashback one is able to protect themselves from any splashback. And number two is that if there's a cause or reason for them to do so it was a Haji Rahim Allah. When he talks about this narration, he talks about several reasons why the parser Salah wouldn't have done this that why the facism didn't sit down that today from them is that this was in the old age of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And bending down was more difficult as was bending his back. So the posture ism urinated standing up number two is that the porcelain perhaps he saw some sort of impurity on the ground. And that is why he feared that if he bent down his

00:13:29--> 00:14:06

garments that might touch the ground would become impure. And that is why they seldom did it actually sit down on the ground that they didn't sit down on the ground that day. So the general rule we want to establish an understanding filk is a general overlaminate ology. to reconcile between narrations is more preferable than to give preference to one narration over another. So one should not say that the hadith of Isla de la vida is given preference over the health of the FDA. Likewise the opposite because in this situations, there is a circumstance we should try to understand what are the circumstances what is the foundation? What is the exception? If you're able

00:14:06--> 00:14:45

to establish these principles in any chapters of a book, what is the foundation what is the exception, it will make understanding so much easier or make understanding fick so much easier. So now, some of the scholars have gone to the opinion that it is impermissible to urinate while standing it is impermissible to urinate while standing based upon the hadith of eyeshadow della Juana. And the fact that you know, it's very difficult to protect oneself from splashback one standing. But again, is there any proof to indicate that? And the answer to that is no. The answer to that is no. So that is the second etiquette that one should try their utmost best to urinate

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

while sitting down. And if there's a reason to urinate while standing up, then it is permissible to do so it is permissible to do so, you know, a practical valid, you know, example in day to day life. as Muslims we shouldn't

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Using the urinals, I mean, I find that a very disgusting habit. One because of the issue of smashed back to, it's such a, like

00:15:10--> 00:15:51

not only hygenic but like you're standing next to some as you're going to the pastoral, the sense of modesty is completely taken away. So you know, that's a, you know, something that should definitely shouldn't be done. But how about if you're in a stall now, and you're using the bathroom? And the toilet seat just doesn't look hygienic at all? Does that mean you have to use the bathroom, you have to sit down on that unhygenic toilet seat? The answer to that is no, you don't need to do that. However, just be very, very careful that you know you protect yourself and protect prevent yourself from splashback. A good tip I learned very, very early on is to carry wet wipes with you white wipes

00:15:51--> 00:16:26

come in very, very handy. So they they purify the area around you like if you ever need to use the toilet seat, just wipe it off. You use it then likewise, if you're in a situation where there's no toilet paper, there's no water, what do you do those wet wipes come in very, very handy as well. So if you know you're going to work every single day, as a good idea to keep them in your backpack, keep them in your bag, or just keep them in your pocket and they definitely do come in very, very handy. They do come in very, very handy. etiquette. Number three, a person should conceal himself from the sight of others, a person should conceal himself from the sight of others, and will be

00:16:26--> 00:17:05

short or long. He says I was with the prophet SAW them on a journey when he felt the need to answer the call of nature and he went far, far away till that I could not make out who he was till I could not make out who he was. So this shows us that the prophets of Salaam and this goes back to the issue of the urinal that when you're using the bathroom, it shouldn't be in front of the public sphere, right? You should conceal yourself from doing so naturally, the process went so far that he was not able to be seen from the public eye he was unable to be seen from the public eye and this directly ties into the issue of the urinal. etiquette number four, a person should not uncover his

00:17:05--> 00:17:36

aura until he has squatted close to the ground because this is more concealing. Now this is obviously you're out in the desert. And if you're wearing and these are like the processes I'm used to wear regularly, so an individual that's wearing and these are and he's going to the bathroom he should not uplift his izhar until he is squatted down. Why what is the reasoning behind that? To conceal one's our even more, you should not you should not unconcealed your hour, until there's an absolute necessity to do so not conceal your necessity, your hour until there's an absolute necessity to do so.

00:17:37--> 00:18:14

Number five, to save the Earth car of entering the bathroom to save yes car of entering the bathroom. And there's two as car that we want to discuss when are entering and one when we are leaving from the bathroom. In terms of entering the bathroom. Two things have been narrated that one should say one of them there's a slight weakness one of them is authentic. The starting off with one that has a slight weakness is entering by saying Bismillah entering the bathroom by saying Bismillah there's a slight weakness in this Hadith, but it has to be narrated in the books of our dub that one should say Bismillah before entering the bathroom, why should he do so? Because the prophets of

00:18:14--> 00:18:31

Allah Hi, there said I'm setting and narration and this is where the weakness is that the covering between the genes and the humans is the saying of Bismillah the covering between the genes and the humans is the saying of Bismillah This is further substantiated by which had the which I had these substantiate this concept.

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

Who can tell me

00:18:35--> 00:18:42

there's a hadith that or a topic that almost all of us should know, that, you know, strengthens this opinion.

00:18:44--> 00:18:52

When else do we say Bismillah? Before eating and changing foods? Okay, Dan changing clothes and

00:18:54--> 00:18:59

Okay, and even something more simpler than that. What else do you say Bismillah.

00:19:00--> 00:19:34

entering your house, entering your house fantastic when entering your house. So the general rule is that you say Bismillah in all of these occurrences, but in particular, the pauses and mentions two of them that you know are joined together one is eating and one is entering the house that the one that says Bismillah before entering then the shouting have no place to say that night, the one that says Mr. manleigh before eating in the shelter and have no share in his food that night. So while this hadith is weak, the scholar said that it could be used before entering the bathroom, as this is a barrier between the shell theme and the human being. So there's a difference of opinion on this

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

authenticity, but it is a clickable in the situation due to the other narrations that we can bring all along to substantiate it. Now what is not different over is the narration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam where he used used to say Allahumma inni our old obika minnow hobo see one Kaaba is that Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from the various types of jinn they differ there in terms of what is hobo and what is Kaaba if they said that one is a meal type

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

The other one is female type of Jen. They said one is a harmful gene and one is the gene that you know, likes to hang around impure places. These are some of the opinions that are there. We're not going to get into that right now. But her birth and her both are referring to the different types of genes or they're referring to impurity and the jinn. Those are the two predominant opinions. So that is what one should say, when he enters the bathroom. That is what one should say when he enters the bathroom. Now, why should he say this when they enter the bathroom? Why do we say this when you enter the bathroom?

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

inside if they say that

00:20:35--> 00:20:42

they couldn't see him, but what is so significant about the bathroom that he should that we should say it

00:20:43--> 00:21:22

fantastic that the jinn and the shell thing, they like to hang around in purified impure places like to hang around in impure places. In fact, something that you'll come to see later on when we talk about how to clean yourself when going to the bathroom is that it is impermissible to use you know, hardened animal feces the possum prohibited using this due to the fact and abusing bones due to the fact that it is food for the gym food for the gym. So any place that there might be impurity, you know, there's a high chance that this is the area of the gin and shale thing. So particularly when entering the bathroom, one should say that one should say that to the best of their ability. So now

00:21:22--> 00:21:41

question arises, does one living you know in a modern context where we have our sink, we have our bathtub, and then you have like the toilet inside one confinement in one room? One should one actually say the back would say the doula one should one actually say that. Entering the door, entering the door

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

entering the washroom door

00:21:45--> 00:21:46

using the toilet itself.

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

The four walls as soon as you cross those four walls.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55


00:21:58--> 00:22:30

Allah Subhana Allah knows best, but it should definitely be said before one starts using the toilet before one starts using the toilet. And the reason behind this is a lot of this will have to do with why is the person actually going to that room. So for example, if you're just going to wash your hands or making to make what would you have to say this is what I know it wasn't legislated from the foster son that he would say this door before he would make the door entering the place where he would make will do it was only legislated when he would actually go and use the toilet. So it's important is keep in mind one's intention as well as the area that he's using. So if you're going to

00:22:30--> 00:23:06

use the toilet, then you can say as you're entering into the passing the door or just about you before using the toilet, and I actually believe that to be more preferable. However, if you're only going to wash your hands or to make wudu or wash your face or even take a shower then this is not legislated at that time that da is not legislated at that time. Now what do we say when we leave the bathroom? For the position? I'm used to say ronak when he used to leave the leave the toilets? In no time, Rahim Allah He comments on this. That why would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala while he is leaving the toilet while he's leaving the

00:23:06--> 00:23:42

toilet. He mentioned something very interesting. It is due to the fact that this is one of the very few moments in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he could not keep his tongue busy with the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he could not keep his tongue busy with the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala so he seeking forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada. He mentions another reason that the possum teaches us this, that we are seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala for not being as grateful for the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala as we should be, like, if you think about the internal systems that allow us Python is put into play in terms of how we perspire,

00:23:42--> 00:24:19

how we breathe, how our heart beats, how our blood circulates, how our food digests, these are all miraculous things that are by Allah subhana wa tada that we don't even fathom we don't even understand. And you know, we're definitely not grateful for it because we don't see, you know, regularly or even contemplate regularly. So that is why we should seek forgiveness from Allah spinalis Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed, you know, something that is harmful and toxic to our bodies to be eliminated. And you know, we had to put no effort into it, we had to put no effort into it. So that is why a second reason why they did not I mentioned that the processor that

00:24:19--> 00:24:30

I'm used to teach us to say or franak when we leave the bathroom when we leave the bathroom. So that was etiquette number six. Now we move on to

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

etiquette number seven etiquette number seven. You should be extremely careful to make sure that there's no impurity left on your body after you use the bathroom. There should be no impurity left on your body after you use the bathroom, particularly when you're in a tank. We already talked about this. This is one of the reasons why the job of the cover takes place. Enable no matter the process and I'm actually mentioned in the Hadith with a slight weakness in it.

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

The most common cause for punishment in the grave is not protecting oneself from urine. And it's completely different from the Hadith of the two people that were being punished in the grave. One of them was being punished for not taking care of themselves when you're in eating, the other one was being punished for spreading the Mima, between the people meaning spreading tales between the people to cause them to fight, right. So the process of not protecting oneself from urinating, it is a great cause of being punished in the grave, and we pray to seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from that. So now one should be extremely careful to make sure that there's no impurity that comes

00:25:36--> 00:26:17

back on to the individual, and extra caution and effort should be made to purify oneself. If that is the case. Now, a fine line needs to be drawn over here, that when a man goes to the bathroom, he's encouraged that after he's finished using the bathroom, he wipes himself. Now, the more he touches his private organ at that time, the more he'll notice that you're in might, you know, trickle out. So the more he's trying to wipe himself or clean himself, the more he notices that you're in my trickle out. So to what extent does he keep trying to clean himself to make sure that no more urine is left inside. And this actually leads into like psychological disorders, where people have like

00:26:17--> 00:26:52

obsessive compulsive disorders, where they'll all go to urinate in the bathroom, it will end up spending like half an hour in the bathroom, just to make sure because that there's no more urine coming out of their their private organs. Now that fine line needs to be drawn that one a person is confident they're comfortable with the fact that you know, more than likely, there's no more urine left inside and there's no urine that's going to trickle out. At that time. They don't they can stop cleansing themselves. They don't have to go that extra mile. Even Samia Rahim Allah, he actually had an interesting quote about this. He says, the private organs of the male is like the other of the

00:26:52--> 00:27:31

cow, that the more you try to pull on it, the more the liquid is going to come out. So once a person feels comfortable that he's urinated everything, his blood, his or his blood is inside his bladder, there's no need to keep going, you know, back and forth to get that extra urine out. You shouldn't force yourself to eliminate that extra year, because it will keep coming out. Right. So once you feel confident that you know what I've emptied out as much as I can, you don't need to go that extra mile to take out the rest of the urine. You don't need to go that extra mile to go to take out the rest of that urine. Now we get to etiquette number seven. How many times should one clean themselves

00:27:32--> 00:28:16

once they've used the bathroom? And what is the reasoning behind that? So we have two Hadith that we want to look at. We have two Hadith that we want to look at, versus the hadith of Isola della Juana where she says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to wash himself three times used to wash himself three times, then the second is the hadith of love and hope. When any of you cleans himself, let him use an odd number, let him use an odd number. Okay, so one Hadith is very explicit with three, another narration of Eros, it says just use an odd number. So now going back to the general ruling over here, when it comes to etiquette, then the general ruling is not mandatory, but

00:28:16--> 00:28:53

something that is encouraged to do so. Now, what is the goal that we're trying to achieve? The goal is that we're trying to achieve cleanliness. So, as long as cleanliness has been achieved, then you have fulfilled your goal, right? Whether that is in one cleaning, in two cleanings in three cleanings, four things, five things, whatever you need, right, depending on you know, how, you know, dysfunctional your your digestive system may be, you may need to do more than that. But the ruling over here is we're trying to achieve cleanliness, sometimes it will be achieved by one, sometimes it will be achieved by more than one. However, what our recommendations over here, recommendations are,

00:28:54--> 00:29:37

that if you have finished cleaning yourself, go that extra one to make it an odd number to fulfill the command of the proper setup. So even though it is just an etiquette, one should still go that extra way to make it more clean and to fulfill the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now this leads us into a controversial topic only amongst Indians and Pakistanis for the most part, and that is can you clean yourself with toilet paper only? And the answer to that is yes, it is permissible to just use toilet paper. If you don't use any water, it is perfectly fine. However, you still want to try to achieve as much cleanliness as possible, as much cleanliness as

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

possible. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually used to use rocks back in the day. Now one may think you know how can you use a rock to clean your posterior isn't it going to be painful? It's not the rock that you're thinking of. These rocks were very smooth and very flat. It's almost like as if it was thick paper. That's what it used to be like and that is what they used to clean themselves with.

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

So in this day and age, you're in the public toilet, you don't have a water bottle, you don't have, you know, one of those cool, distinct job bags that they have. Now, you don't have a lot with you, there's no bucket, what do you do in that situation, you don't need to carry water in your hands to go to the bathroom, just use toilet paper, it's perfectly fine. There's nothing wrong with that. And then you'll notice, like other weird things that most questions I get all the time, particularly while flying, you want to use the bathroom, and then the plane, you're not sure you completely clean. So let me put some extra toilet paper, after I'm done using it between my underwear and

00:30:39--> 00:31:13

myself. And I always find that, you know, to be very problematic, because if there's any impurity there, it's on you, right? The fact that it's on the toilet paper, now, it's still between your clothes and you know, be praying in that situation is problematic. So you haven't really made a difference psychologically, I can't understand why you may feel cleaner. But in terms of a hokum, shatta in terms of a religious ruling, you haven't really made things better. So just go that extra mile to clean yourself, make sure you're clean, make sure you feel comfortable with that, whether it is water, whether it is toilet paper, whether it is you know, you're out in nature, you're camping,

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

you can use leaves, you can use,

00:31:17--> 00:31:42

you know, pretty much anything you want, with the exception of a few things that deposit certain prohibited the usage of bones. And it prohibited the usage of hardened feces of animals, right? So sometimes you'll find something that looks like a rock, but it's a core species, right? Horse species tends to look like rocks in that situation that you're not allowed to use. And he tells us why he tells us why. Because it is the food for the jinn.

00:31:43--> 00:31:47

Now, how about using leftover food.

00:31:49--> 00:32:25

And I'll give you like a clear example of this, how about using things like the skin of an orange, you're out in nature, there's no leaves, anywhere, there's no rocks, there's no water, all you have is your orange that you have with you, can you use the skin of the orange, actually, let's discuss the issue of using the orange itself, the actual orange itself, you're not allowed to use Why? Because if we're meant to respect the food of the gin, then the food of the ends is meant to be older than the food of the human beings deserves to be respected even more. How about the skin though, the skin Allah subhanaw taala knows best, it is something that is permissible to use just

00:32:25--> 00:33:03

based upon the fact that it's not it is not some that is normally consumed. Right. Some people might use it on like shavings on cake, or like adding flavor to things. But it's not something that can that is consumed normally. So based upon that using something like that would be fine. Or likewise, you have lettuce that has gone bad. You know, that's all you have, that's perfectly fine to use. There's nothing wrong with that. So in that situation, you know, you can use whatever you have available, but one should not be using food, or bones or the the dunk of animals or the dunk of animals. So summarizing this discussion over here, the general ruling is you can use whatever you

00:33:03--> 00:33:40

want to purify yourself. However, it should be there to a degree that you are comfortable that you are now pure. It can be water, it can be tissue paper or toilet paper, it can be something other than that. Number two is that it should be a number which is odd. So if you once is good enough for you, that's fine. If it's to try to take it up to three, if it's four, try to take it up to five, you try to make it odd. The third etiquette you should not be using which hand, your right hand, do not use your right hand to clean yourself, you should be using your left hand Instead, use your left hand in stead.

00:33:43--> 00:33:56

Any questions so far on anything I've mentioned? Because I know it's a lot of information. But because we had a shortened halakhah last time and we're gonna have a short halaqa today. And we need to have another look after this as well. I want to go through as much as I can. Any questions go ahead.

00:33:58--> 00:33:59


00:34:02--> 00:34:23

So that's the thing. That's what I was saying. In a modern day context, you we will separate the toilet from the bathroom itself. So when one is using the toilet, you shouldn't say Bismillah while using the toilet. However, if you were just using the sink, there's nothing wrong with saying Bismillah even though you within the confines of the four walls, Allah Juana Any other questions, go ahead.

00:34:24--> 00:34:25


00:34:31--> 00:34:37

So in terms of Yeah, that is difficult to to use. So in that circumstance, allow them I don't know.

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

Are they using a water bottle or like a

00:34:42--> 00:34:57

different case because you can take would it be three times the filling up water? That's like, No, that's too much. Yeah. No, I love Adam. I don't know what would be done in that situation. But I'm assuming it's in terms of the wipes that will take place on the one

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

Yeah, but it's these murder. I mean, it's these Mark can be used interchangeably as well. It can be used like Kissinger can mean both so we can use this mark, even though the predominant meaning of a statement is that it is using the solid substance. The last thing we'll mention

00:35:17--> 00:35:53

Allah subhana wa tada he revealed about the people of Cuba that they were beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the books of the Sierra mentions why, because the combined between this dismal and stingy, they combined between the usage of solid cleansing as well as water cleansing that used to use rocks, along with water, so used to go that extra mile in terms of purification. And this is from the verse in the La haematobium, where you're able, Matata hidden, and it's revealed revealed to the both the people of Cuba that they used to go that extra step in purifying themselves. So this means that a person can go another extra mile between combining between tissue paper and water, then

00:35:53--> 00:35:58

this is something that is preferable to do. So something that is preferable to do so.

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

Yeah, go ahead.

00:36:04--> 00:36:04


00:36:07--> 00:36:13

the sandstone, and that's perfectly fine. No problem. inshallah, just make sure not to cut yourself that might be a bit sharp.

00:36:17--> 00:36:21

And then the last thing that we will mentioned before we move on

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

to the next topic is

00:36:25--> 00:36:59

actually no two things. Three things that we were mentioned before moving on to next topic. Number one, is that one should not urinate or defecate in public places by public places. Meaning that places where people will pass by, so for example, it's four o'clock in the morning, and you're out in the park, I don't know what you're doing in the park or four o'clock in the morning, but let's just say you are and you need to use the bathroom, you're like, Okay, let me urinate, you know, next to a tree, daytime comes, this is a place where people come and have their picnics. And you know, you've just urinated there or you've dedicated to there, then you know, that's problematic person

00:36:59--> 00:37:00


00:37:01--> 00:37:15

urinating and defecating in places that are commonly used by people. Back in the days, it was the public pathways. So even though it's late at night, there's no one on the pathway. It doesn't mean you can do it go and take care of your business in those public pathways. on a on a funnier note.

00:37:17--> 00:38:01

I was reading something on Facebook, I think this is when I was thinking this is on BuzzFeed a couple of days back where a young man 18 years old, he was arrested, what was he arrested for? He had gone out partying, and on his way back home, he urgently needed to use the bathroom for number two. So he finds a house that is abandoned. And he goes into the house. And he notices that the the toilet isn't working, it doesn't flush. So what does he decide to do, he decides to use the tub instead say goes inside the tub. I don't know how people found out but he was arrested for defecating on on private property inside of someone's tub. Now you tie that in anywhere that the

00:38:01--> 00:38:37

public generally uses you don't want to be using. The next point we want to mention is that the person that is using the bathroom, and the person that sees the person using the bathroom, they should not exchange the lamps. So for example, you know if you're in the bathroom and you know the doors closed and someone at home is like hey x, y and Zed I'm leaving house now Salaam Alaikum, you should not respond to their salaams while using the bathroom. Likewise, the person that is leaving should not have said salaams while you're leaving the bathroom, either they should wait or leave a note or say something else. But they should not convey the salaams because the pasta ism actually

00:38:37--> 00:39:13

prohibited jabber he said do not give me Saddam's if you ever see me answering the call of nature do not give me salaams if you see me answering the call of nature and certain times when the prophets of Salaam was seen given the call of nature, the or the the Sahaba that had just accepted Islam, they will say Salaam Alaikum, the policies are more than to respond to them, but of not wanting to offend them, you will simply just raise his hand he was simply just raise his hand to give them the salon. So the etiquette is that one should not respond or gifts ramps to someone that is using the bathroom, nor should one respond if one is using the bathroom as well.

00:39:14--> 00:39:53

And the last thing that we will mention is you're out in public, you're out in a forest and you see a hole or you see a crack in the mountains. Should you urinate or defecate in those areas? And the answer is no, do not urinate or defecate inside of holes on areas that are cracked between mountains or inside caves or anything of that nature. The prophets are seldom said that these are the homes of the jinn. These are the homes of the jinn. So that should not be done. Okay, so now these are just some of the etiquettes when going to the bathroom. I think most of us knew all of these things. We learnt them when we were in Sunday school. Now let's actually get down to some of the * that

00:39:53--> 00:39:54

needs to be discussed.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

The ruling on the facing the Qibla or putting ones back towards the Qibla when asked

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

During the call of nature, okay, there are three opinions on this issue. Opinion number one is that one should not face nor put one's back towards the Qibla whether you're inside or outside, meaning that you're inside confined walls, or whether you're outside in the public. The proof for this statement is the hadith of Abu manansala de la I know, when one of you goes to relieve yourselves, or urinate, then do not face the Qibla or turn your back to it, instead, turn to the direction of the east or west turn to the direction of the east or west. Who is this hadith being applied to?

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

Who is the process of addressing over here,

00:40:41--> 00:40:47

don't put don't face no turn your back towards the north in the south. So who is it being referred to

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


00:40:53--> 00:41:35

the opposite. So they're in Medina right now. And the South is Makkah, the South is Makkah, and then the fear the face the other way, they shouldn't put the frontal back towards that direction. So face east and west instead. So the poet Pablo Salaam is telling the people of Medina this that they should not face towards Mecca would rather turn towards east and west, and the proposition m didn't specify whether one is inside or outside in the situation. This was the opinion of the amount of honey for rahimullah opinion. Number two, it is permissible to face the Qibla or put ones back towards the Qibla whether one is inside or out. This was the opinion of Avaya, the opinion of Avaya,

00:41:36--> 00:42:17

then you have opinion number three, which is the opinion of the Maliki might have the humble he might have and the shuffle he might have, they said if one is inside, then it is not a problem to face or put ones back towards the Qibla. However, if one is outside, then one should not put one's face or back towards the Qibla. What is the reasoning behind this? What is the reasoning behind this, versus the hadith of Abdullah bin Ahmad Abdullah who I know he narrated, I ascended the roof of the house of half Salar de la and Saudi messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sitting on two bricks facing Jerusalem for relieving himself facing Jerusalem relieving himself. So Qibla is

00:42:17--> 00:43:02

towards the south, and Jerusalem is towards the north, meaning that he had his back towards the Kaaba or the Qibla. And deposit ended there, there was no harm in in doing this, and he saw the process of them doing this, okay, then, that is the Hadith of the loving God, and this is from the rooftop. So that is the proof of the idea. Now, the proof for the majority over here, they said that the general ruling is, whenever there's something between you, it acts as a barrier between you and anything else. So for example, in Salah, the general ruling is you should not walk in front of someone that is praying. However, if they put a sutra in front of themselves, you can now now walk

00:43:02--> 00:43:40

in front of them praying mean that their Salah has been protected. So using this logic of something being protected mean that there's a barrier in between that will protect it, it is now permissible to do so. How did the Hanafi respond to this? Who can think of something clever that they would would have responded with? Yes. Well, if you're creating accounts that you can pray towards Mecca, but there's as it gets in front of you, yeah, you're navigating whatever. If there's something in front of you, you're still pointing America in the same way that your brain. So what does it count for prayer? Or not? If you're replicating Okay, no, so now you're spawning to the Hanafi. I'm saying

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

how would the Hanafi respond to this? So you're saying what the majority is saying? How would the Hanafi madhhab respond to the claim of the majority there? Because you put a barrier in between, then all of a sudden, it's fine now?

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

Can anyone think of anything Going once, going twice?

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

praying outside? How so?

00:44:05--> 00:44:40

No. So the what the Hanafi is would respond to this by saying is that it is impossible that someone is you know, urinating or defecating outside and in the direction of the Qibla. Yet a tree does not come in as pathway or a building does not come as pathway. It might not be in one mile, it might be 50 miles or 100 miles or 1000 miles, something will eventually come in your pathway, your default system still gave the prohibition don't do it facing the Qibla. And honestly, I found this to be a very strong argument is a very strong argument that that was that was on them while knowing that a tree would come in the way or house would come in the way or building would come in the way he still

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

gave this prohibition, meaning that it should be not taken lightly, should not be taken lightly. So now our conclusion for this summary is that when you're outside, definitely do not face the Qibla or put your back towards the Qibla. What does this teach us? pay very close attention to which direction you're in the urinating or going to the bathroom there, there's an option you should not face

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

Or put your back towards the cube that pay very close attention to this. This also shows us that Muslims of the past, they always knew which direction that Tableau was in, so that they would know you know where they're praying but also know when to use the bathroom, which directions not to face. When you're inside, there's a lot more flexibility, there's a lot more flexibility. As you can see, the majority was of the opinion that as long as there's a barrier, then this prohibition does not need to be accommodated to however, the argument of the Hanafi is still strong. So if you're in a situation where you can choose not to put your back or to face the Qibla while using the bathroom,

00:45:34--> 00:45:38

then that should definitely be done. That should definitely be done.

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

Now we talk about

00:45:43--> 00:46:22

skins of dead animals, skins of dead animals. Why is this something that is relevant to us, because a lot of our clothes, a lot of our shoes will be made from skins of dead animals. If you own a leather jacket, more than likely comes from the skin of a dead animal. you own any type of fancy dress shoes or or formal shoes, more than likely they're made from a skin of an animal. So with that being said, What is the ruling on using those skins are they considered pure or impure? What makes them pure? Now, there are actually seven opinions on this issue seven opinions How is it possible to have seven opinions on this issue? We will find out inshallah. Okay, so opinion number one, we'll go

00:46:22--> 00:46:58

through this rather quickly. You just need to remember the conclusion at the end inshallah. So opinion number one opinion of Mr. Mohammed any mathematic, any skin of an animal cannot be purified, if that animal has not been slaughtered properly, if that animal has not been slaughtered properly, so meaning, you know, the skins that we find on in clothing and issues, more than likely those animals haven't been slaughtered, they've just been, you know, killed and their skins have been taken. So that is what they're talking about. So animals that haven't been slaughtered, and the skins that have been taken, then they're those skins are not permissible. This is Mr. Muhammad in

00:46:58--> 00:47:35

Mr. Maddock. Opinion number two is although Zion abnormal Barak, any animal that you're allowed to eat, whether it has been slaughtered or not, their skin is permissible to use their skin is permissible to use even mobarak nlo say and this is the opinion we actually give preference to. So that is opinion number two, that is the opinion you should try to remember that is the opinion you should try to remember. We'll go through the proofs of it right now. Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a dead goat, which had been given in charity to a freed us to the freed slave maimunah Allah's Messenger sallallahu Sallam asked, why did you not make use of its skin? She

00:47:35--> 00:48:07

responded it is dead. Upon this he said it is the eating of the dead animal which is prohibited is the eating of the dead animal which is prohibited Sahih Muslim, meaning that the usage of the skin of an animal that could be slaughtered, but wasn't it still permissible to use it is only the Mater the meat of that animal that is not permissible to consume. So based upon that it is permissible to use and even abasa de la Houma. He has further narrations from various IRA to talk about this as well. Opinion number three in mana Shafi I live in a bit Olive and I believe

00:48:09--> 00:48:53

it is permissible to use any skin of an animal with the exception of dog and pig skin and anything related to it. So the dog family would be like wolves, foxes, and the pig family would be like Boers, right? This is opinion number three, it is opinion number three Okay, opinion number four, any skin can be used with the exception of pig skin. This is the method of Imam Abu hanifa the method of Imam Abu hanifa opinion number five one can use any skin with the exception of pig skin and dog skin, but all the skins that are used it is not allowed to use the interior However, one can use the exterior okay. So meaning you have the skin of an animal the outside of it you can use

00:48:53--> 00:49:26

however the inside of it that is what not that is what should not be used that is what should not be used. This was the opinion that was an A opinion in the Maliki method. Opinion number six from the students remember honey for abuse of all skins can be used both inside and out. So all skins can be used pigs and dogs included opinion number seven the opinion of zaharie all skins can be used, but only for dry things and not wet. What does that mean? What is something wet that you cannot use it for?

00:49:28--> 00:49:59

What is something you would use it water, I just give it away. They would use skins to transport water. So you're saying that you can use it for dry things. But anything that would cause it to get wet and will cause a witness to rub off onto you or to onto your clothing then that is something that could not be used. That is something that could not be used. So just as a simple rule, when we're talking about what is pure and impure, as long as that animal can be slaughtered, then that mean that skin is permissible to be used. So what does that genuinely mean? That pig skins dog skins corn

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

Ever skins like crocodiles and alligators and stuff like that these sorts of skins are not permissible to use anything else. cows, goats, sheep, anything else you can think of that's permissible to consume and slaughter, those skins can be used those skins can be used. Any questions on that? We can't wear like crocodile shoes or belts or, or, like leather belts? Oh, yeah, no, those should not be consumed at all, because the crocodile and the alligator are not permissible to consume. I mean, there's

00:50:34--> 00:51:13

even in the form of shoes, even in the form of shoes, you know, I'll tell you something interesting. One of my favorite brand of shoes is Clark's shoes. And cake, I can't remember how many years ago, they transfer their manufacturing from England to China. And when they did, so, that changed the type of leather they would use inside the shoes, they started using pig pig skin inside of their shoes. Now the way you quantify pig skin from any other skin is the usage of three dots. If you see the pattern of three dots on skin, that's pig skin, there's no shadow without you can't hide that. So anytime those three dots are there, that's being seen as being used. You can't use those shoes,

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

as opposed to some, you know, prohibited usage of that.

00:51:17--> 00:51:32

Repeating sake almost as if there's like a triangle, like you don't even need a microscope, just look at the skin. And you'll see the three dots everywhere. So now if you pay attention to the inside of Clark's shoes, most of them that are made in China have the three dots on them because they're using pigskin synthetic leather.

00:51:33--> 00:51:39

So anything that's synthetic doesn't apply. Yeah, because it's manmade? Yeah. And go ahead.

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

The amount

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

is like,

00:51:47--> 00:51:48

a mixture of

00:51:50--> 00:51:55

that's gonna be like one strange shirt or pants or something man, like, how would that even work?

00:51:58--> 00:52:30

I mean, I don't know how practical that is. But in that situation, then the the general ruling would be it should be a very insignificant amount, right, whatever we would consider insignificant. That's the amount it should be. But still, it's better to avoid the situation and circumstances if possible. But realistically speaking, I don't think they do that, that they would combine between like, you know, cow leather and like pig leather and stuff. I don't think that's that's very common. So how about this American football? What material? is it made of? Or was it made off at one time? pigskin, right? Is it permissible to play with pigskin?

00:52:32--> 00:52:32

Why not?

00:52:35--> 00:52:36


00:52:37--> 00:52:46

The wearing it is one thing because you obviously you can't pray in it. And you shouldn't have, you know, your day to day lifestyle in it. But what about playing with it?

00:52:47--> 00:53:01

A physical. Yeah, and that is what the majority of scholars even went to that even you know, transporting pay skin. Even though you're not using it, you're just transporting it in something that should be abstain from it is something that should be abstain from

00:53:02--> 00:53:05

the play with the gloves, that becomes like the exception.

00:53:06--> 00:53:13

As you know, quarterbacks don't wear gloves, man, the receivers wear the gloves. The quarterback doesn't wear the gloves. So it's permissible to be a receiver, but not according

00:53:19--> 00:53:20

to Paul Powerball,

00:53:21--> 00:53:22

or something like that.

00:53:24--> 00:53:46

But exactly, what kind of materials in a Genius Bar Exam. Right? Right. So I mean, the key ones you want. I mean, the good thing is dogs don't have leather, they just have skin. So most clothing and shoes will not be made of dog skin. The other exception is the pig. And we just mentioned right now how to identify the pigskin the pig scene that has that pattern. You? Yeah, you have to identify?

00:53:48--> 00:54:25

No, no, there's no way to eliminate it. Right, there's no way to eliminate this pattern, because that's just how the skin is. So you'll always see the pattern of the three dots on it. So you've all pink skin will always have a pattern of three dots on it. So any shoe that is made out of pink skin, you'll always see a pattern of three dots on it. Okay, as for what other animals would have leather, I'm not too sure. I heard crocodile leather. That's that's, that's the other. Yeah. So the crocodile leather. And this is something that will we'll look into further. But when we're doing our physical food and clothing, we differentiated between the crocodile and the alligator. The reason of the

00:54:25--> 00:54:34

differentiation was one has its natural habitat in water. The other one has this natural habitat on land. So whichever has his natural habitat in water is permissible.

00:54:36--> 00:54:51

Crocodile is in water, then whoever has his natural habitat online, which is probably the alligator that does that is the one that's not permissible to use. Right? Because we're the first one that had the support system that whoever has water, you know, as its main domain is permissible. Well, mahananda

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

Yep. Michael

00:54:57--> 00:54:58

was there once

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

About slotted together by a Christian it's a shot. They make very good level from the camera. Okay? For sure the image for this shows whatever in that situation. It's allowed. Fantastic. So the principle we established the camera Are we allowed to slaughter it and eat it? So far if I did you know the, the nature of the camel, can I eat the camel? Fantastic. So as long as the animal is allowed to eat, then the dead skin of the animal is allowed to be used as well

00:55:32--> 00:55:47

regardless of how they killed it, exactly, because we had the hadith of maimunah where the animal was already dead, right so the Muslim said, Why are you not using this? And she said yeah, the sooner the animals dead the positive said that the meat is Mater but the skin is permissible to use. Well

00:55:50--> 00:55:59

I have no idea. I thought what that is, but a lot of these things we don't understand why you do that. Maybe someone gave it while it was alive and it died. I don't know a lot. How

00:56:01--> 00:56:14

do you know like, hard leather? couch leather was not coming to me. Most of it is synthetic. Now. Everything is synthetic. Usually synthetic. Yeah. Yeah. Neither kindly reduce the costs and stuff. Yeah.

00:56:15--> 00:56:35

Yeah. So I mean, exactly. So if you're buying like real leather couches, you're going into like, you know, very high 1000s. Most of the couches you say today are like 1000 $2,000. Those are synthetic leather. So the this ruling doesn't apply to them because they're manmade substances, their manmade substances. Moving on to the next issue, the issue of

00:56:36--> 00:56:42

the feces and urine of animals feces and urine of animals, okay. So now,

00:56:44--> 00:57:27

with the exception of the urine of a suckling, male infant, the scholars are in agreement concerning the impurity. and adjust of urine and excrement of human beings, meaning that any urine or excrement of human beings with the exception of the young infant meal boy is considered impure is considered impure. Okay, that's his word. The word there is HMR word is the killer occur concerning the purity, the purity or impurity of dog in hearing of animals, the scores are divided in their opinions on this issue into three groups. So dung and urine of animals are divided into two categories animals we can eat animals, we cannot slaughter animals, we cannot solder Okay, so opinion number one is

00:57:27--> 00:58:07

Imam Shafi Imam, Abu hanifa, and a student of the use of dung and urine from animals are on notice. So any type of animal regardless of you can eat it or not slaughtered or not. Their urine and their dung is Niger's, Shafi, Abu hanifa and abou use of main proof, dung and urine of humans is not just so this should apply to animals as well, because they are considered less and they're their excrement is considered more filthy. Their excrement is considered more filthy. That is the statement of Abdullah Massoud. He related that you mentioned to him alasa said I'm going to answer the call of nature. He asked Abdullah and Miss o to bring three stones. Abdullah said I could not

00:58:07--> 00:58:39

find three stones. So I found two stones and animal dung and brought them to him. He took the two stones and throw away the dunk saying it is impure saying it is impure. Then the other narration he said is his food for the gin here he said it is impure Okay, that is opinion number one. Opinion number two, Malika Nima Muhammad and some of the Hanafi and Shafi scholars, dung and urine is not nudges if you can eat that animal if you can eat that animal proof of this unnecessarily the Allahu anhu reported that some of the people

00:58:40--> 00:58:45

came and avoided sorry, so we reported that some people

00:58:49--> 00:58:49


00:58:51--> 00:59:29

Okay, fantastic. So some people came from out of town and the prophets of Salaam gave them camel urine to drink began because they started to get sick supposed to give them camel urine to drink. Why? Because they started to get sick, and they initially refused the process. I'm told them that this is pure default system told them that this is pure. Now there's a slight weakness in this hadith. However, it has been accepted by the scholars it hasn't been accepted by the scholars calm. A follow up Hadith from this. Allah subhanaw taala did not make a cure for this oma and what is haram for them in what is haram? For for them. The monsoon was also wants to ask should we pray in

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

the stalls of camels? The prompts are some answers not to because there are the are the abodes of shouting, the Sahaba then asked, should we pray in the stalls of sheep? The process of them answered that they could in the stalls of animals, there's urine and dung, and yet the person said it was okay to pray there, meaning that it is not nervous. It is not Niger's. Okay, so this was the proof for opinion number two, that the animals that can be slaughtered, then their urine and their feces is not considered impure. This is opinion number three

01:00:00--> 01:00:32

I'm stating it just for the fact that you guys should know it. But this third opinion, like no one in the history of Islam has held this opinion with the exception of one scholar. And that is that all animal feces and urine is pure. That's how it was held by ignorance from the Maliki method. But like I said, no one from the history of Islam has this opinion to the best of my knowledge. The strongest opinion out of the three Allah subhanaw taala knows best, but there's an overwhelming proof for number two overwhelming proof for number two, can we think of other examples?

01:00:34--> 01:00:37

With the animals that can be slaughtered than their feces and urine is pure?

01:00:39--> 01:00:48

Can we think of other practical examples? That would indicate this? Think of old time Medina? What something that would take place commonly and regularly?

01:00:51--> 01:00:56

For five, cow dung used for fire? And what were you saying cow dung used for?

01:00:57--> 01:00:58

For fueling

01:00:59--> 01:01:07

for for fertilizing, okay, you guys are way too advanced for me. something even more simpler? What was it? What was the poster? sounds much did?

01:01:08--> 01:01:22

It was just open space, right? what's commonly flying over? Birds. And we don't have any narrations of bird poop ever been cleaned up? Right? That's one thing. Another thing? What used to commonly walk through the masjid which animals?

01:01:27--> 01:01:38

goats is common as well, but not as common as cats. Right? Whatever the last one is constantly seen with cats. Right? Cats are coming into the machine all the time, even till this day, you still find it? Yeah, there's not.

01:01:39--> 01:02:09

You know, any issue with this? There is no, there's nothing wrong with that. So this shows you that the general ruling on things which we discussed last in our last halaqa is things are pure, until you can prove them to be impure, right? So if you're going to say something is not just you have to prove it's an agenda through an explicit text, right. So same thing over here the the animals, donkeys and dung gained and urine, it is pure until we can prove its impurity and is pure until we can prove its impurity.

01:02:11--> 01:02:26

We can slaughter the animal that minerals. This is our measures are not necessary when we can slaughter a cat. This is something we discussed last week. We discussed this last week or not last week, and then our last Hanukkah, what was the conclusion we came to

01:02:32--> 01:02:34

I can't remember how you can go back to it. But

01:02:35--> 01:02:58

the point being is that we want to go back to the foundational ruling over here, which is even bigger than what you're mentioning the the issue of the soldering is that things are pure until you can prove their impurity, right. And the fact that most of them allowed the cats to walk freely inside of the machine and no one had to look after them or clean after them. It really showed the the purity of that subject to the purity of that subject.

01:02:59--> 01:03:41

Now the last issue we're going to be taking for today before we go further than is the issue of semen and sperm and you know, prosthetic fluid, what is the ruling on that? What is the ruling on that? So the first thing we want to look at are what are the types of fluids that will be excluded from the male private parts. You have three main fluids you have number one, which is called semen and this is the fluid that comes out just prior to an email to a man ejaculating. So, that is the it is a fluid that comes out that is step three is see through in color, sometimes thick, sometimes thin, but you can clearly be differentiated from the fluid which comes out with a with ejaculation,

01:03:41--> 01:04:23

which is sperm, which is the second substance. So the first one is semen, second one is sperm. And then the third fluid is what they will call a prosthetic fluid. Now in Arabic, you want to know the terms money is sperm. And then Maddie is the is semen and Waze is the is the prosthetic fluid. prosthetic fluid. When does that normally come out? It will come out sometimes before urination, sometimes after urination, the way you differentiate it from urine is it'll be more sticky in substance and usually there will be a very strong odor that comes with it. Usually there will be a very strong odor that comes with it. Now, default ruling that we will establish anything that comes

01:04:23--> 01:04:40

out of the front and back private parts is considered impure. That is the general ruling on anything that is comes out of the front and the back private parts. Now, are there exceptions to this? Yes, there are exceptions to this as we will come to see. So now

01:04:42--> 01:04:59

what were the the scenario we're painting over here is a man has been intimate with his wife and some fluid has gone on to the cloth. Okay, what do we do with that fluid that has gone gotten onto that clothes by consensus. If that fluid is wet, it should be washed off.

01:05:00--> 01:05:39

There's consensus on that matter. Now, the difference of opinion comes, what if that fluid has now dried off? What happens in that situation? Does it need to be washed? Or can it just be scratched off? Can it just be scratched off? So, that is the scenario we are painting over here. And this can be applied to you know, what if a man wakes up and he has a wet dream while he was sleeping, but the fluid has now dried off, what happens in that situation? So opinion number one opinion of Imam Malik Abu hanifa and one of the narrations from a mammoth mud, that it is impure and the clothing needs to be washed. Now the clothing needs to be washed.

01:05:40--> 01:05:54

The proof for this is I shall Allah one has said speaking about semen I would simply rub it off the clothes of the of Allah's Messenger to send them and he would pray in them. And then another narration she used to she said, I used to if it was dry, scrape it off, and

01:05:55--> 01:06:34

sweeping off his clothes with my Neil those who say this imperiously that the headline shall, Adela why not states, I should removed it from the close of the messenger was a solemn, if it was not impure, I should not have had to remove it, if it was not impure, I shall have the Allaha would not have had to remove it. Opinion number two. This is the opinion of Amanda Shafi. The more common view of your mom I've made the view of Hadith and vulva hadiah. And they said that the sperm is actually pure and they use the same Hadith that I showed you Allah one has said speaking about semen, I will simply rub it off the close of Allah's Messenger saw them and he would pray in them. And then their

01:06:34--> 01:07:01

narration said I used to if it was dry, scrape it off his clothes with my near those who say it is pure see that there are still traces in the fiber of the clothing, even after rubbing it off. If I showed your loved one that knew it to be not just she would have washed it off, and now just rubbed it off. And there are a couple of other Hadith on this subject matter. Now let's look at logical arguments. logical argument number one that semen is impure and needs to be removed. They said the substance that comes out

01:07:03--> 01:07:33

it puts one in a state of Geneva. And since it puts one in the state of Geneva it should be impure. Number two, money and muddy both come from the same orifice as urine. So it should still have the same ruling as urine, meaning that the internal pipes that it comes out of is the same one therefore should have the same rulings. Number three Ibn masovian honorable acaba de la who are of the opinion that money must be washed off. So the scholars take their saying to mean that it is nudges. Now, logical arguments that semen

01:07:34--> 01:08:13

sorry that semen is pure, and does not need to be removed, is that the comparison is made to sweat and mucus and that they are all pure substances, even though that they come out of the body, this money is the same way I should be considered pure. Number two humans are pure, and we all come from money. So it makes money pure as well. Three sperm is a substance that is often discharged and it affects many people. Therefore, it is its proper removal would have been clearly stated in Hadeeth. If it was not just this is the concept is or who have that, you know, the processor will not make something and it would leave something unclear due to the great necessity of it. And D according to

01:08:13--> 01:08:57

ignore bas, that it is not impure, it is not m pure. Now there's a long discussion that we've gone to but is the time for the conclusion over here. The pre seminal fluid that comes out is actually impure is Allah knows best but it actually seems to be impure. The seminal fluid which is the sperm itself is something which is actually pure, the wuzzy which is before your nation or after your nation, or if someone is sick, that is also impure. Now one wakes up in the morning or one after intimacy finds that is on their clothes. If it is wet, it has to be washed off. If it is dry, it is better that you wash it off. It is better that you wash it off. If you're unable to wash it off and

01:08:57--> 01:09:24

you only have this one clothing you're a bachelor you haven't done laundry because all you have left time for Salah is running out at fudger time scraping it off. There's nothing wrong with that. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best Allah huzzah and Adam next week, we actually get into the act of Voodoo and oversell itself. And that will be the last halaqa Allahu tada merciless and robotic and again, Mohammed one it was tough to set up. So Hannah Callahan will be having a shadow night in the Highlander soccer watch.
