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

Alright so like when I'm talking about a cat

00:00:05--> 00:00:11

smell document or human Candida he'll be datamine was salatu salam or I noticed that he had kidney Marana only he was like be a drain.

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

So inshallah Tada just to let you all know we are now in the last four chapters, the last four Hadith about incredible Eman in the book of faith. So I kind of told you guys when we started the study of Sahaja body that the way that this would work is we would kind of see how it goes. We'll just get started and start going through the Hadith and then see what direction we're going to take it. So the direction that we're going to take it Inshallah, is that we're going to choose selected books in Sahih al Bukhari to cover so we're not going to cover every book in Sahih al Bukhari, but instead inshallah Tada will choose some of the books to cover the next book in Sahih al Bukhari is

00:00:52--> 00:01:09

Kitab enemas the book of knowledge so let you guys know if we're going to start there and shall Asana after Kitab Iman. So far we've we've covered the book in regards to the beginning of Revelation. And we are now finishing inshallah we'll finish through the end of April kitab. Will Eman the book of faith and Schelotto and then take our break.

00:01:11--> 00:01:34

But we've come now to chapter 39. And the name of this chapter is Bab fugly Minister bruh li Dini, which is the superiority of a person who leaves all doubtful things, for the sake of his religion, the superiority of a person who leaves all doubtful things for the sake of his religion. Now, what was the last Hadith? You guys remember what we studied last?

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

Or what is Huracan? What part of Iraq?

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

What was the conversation that we studied last time? Does anybody leaves?

00:01:46--> 00:02:14

Okay, we're hierarchal is asking about Sophia, the rocket is asking Sophia Does anyone ever leave this religion after faith enters their heart as a result of being displeased with the religion. So basically, the sweetness of faith entering into the heart and the way that faith grounds a person and faith makes a person not want to lead. So you can see that there's a connection in sha Allah Tada between this last Hadith and this hadith, which we'll sort of talk about in the end but this hadith

00:02:15--> 00:02:53

is really just warning people from not looking for the loopholes in the religion so there's one person in the previous Hadith that's very satisfied with his religion and there is this person now that we're going to study that always looks for the gray area that always sort of you know, seeks out the loopholes so that they don't have to practice the religion fully. I'll read the Hadith inshallah Tada, and Arabic firt first had definite Apollinaire, he had definitely Zakariya and amor cada Samara to normal in Bashir or the alongside and be a good Samaritan Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Kol al Hallelu. The Yin will haram billion, or they know Houma will shut Behat

00:02:53--> 00:03:24

La Jolla Aloha Kathy Romina nurse from an attack on Moshe Behati establish the de wherever we women look artificial will hottie Tara and Yola, how will the HEMA Yoshiko and you are PR who are our in an equally mannequin Hema Anna in the female la Heafy fee audibly he Maha Remo who on our NFL just at the medulla either solar had solar hell Jessa dokolo were either first at that festival Jessa dokolo Allah will heal.

00:03:25--> 00:03:30

So the Hadith just to first, for the three of you or for you that are taking notes and

00:03:32--> 00:03:57

the first thing to cover in sha Allah is the son of the chain of narrations right, and sometimes I'll just stop to let you guys know when there's something unique about the sonnet about the chain of narration, the chain of the narration of this particular Hadith. This chain is particularly it's known as the coffee chain. And it's not the coffee chain because of like a coffee, but because all of the narrators are from Kufa in Iraq.

00:03:58--> 00:04:17

So it's a very it's a very famous chain in fact, and there's a particular Narrator here but the name of the AMA and and it refers to le Mama Sharabi Rahim Allah to Allah, an Imam, a shabby. Does anyone know who the mama Shafi is? In Islamic history plays a very significant role. Where is column who's the shabby?

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

You don't know who's a shabby

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

and the mama shabby is the first teacher of Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Tada the first teacher of Abu Hanifa who was from Kufa and Iraq as well so he's the first one that actually saw Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah and got him interested in pursuing knowledge so I'm the Imam is sharp is Ahmed here. He's actually in this chain, and he narrates directly from a companion by the name of Norman Ivanova said about the Allah Tada. And now, there might have been Bashir, if you look into the full context of this hadith he's actually giving a hint by here. He's mentioning this narration that I heard the Prophet slice I'm saying this particular narration he's saying

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

Get as he's giving a sermon. And he gives. The interesting thing about this hadith is that it's narrated in two different places, that he gave the sermon in Kufa in Iraq. And he gave the sermon and hence, was hemps.

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

Syria, very good. I was waiting for you. Well, I'm going to say Abu Dhabi,

00:05:20--> 00:06:00

both in hemp switches in Syria and in Kufa in Iraq. Okay. Now, the reason why that's not problematic at all is because he served as a governor of both of those cities at some point in his life. So in the narration of Muslim, it's, it's in the narration of Sahih Muslim, it's him giving the ultimate in a sham in Syria, particularly in hemsson. And in Iraq, here in the in the narration in Behati, which is the narrator's from Kufa, in Iraq. The sister show you the way that had these sciences are preserved here that you know, each and every single context has to be explained in that regard. How is it that he gave this ultimate here and he gave this hope, but they're not a member. She is also a

00:06:00--> 00:06:05

very interesting companion for the fact that he was only eight years old when the prophets lie some passed away.

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

He was an eight year old child. So you might be wondering, how does he narrate a hadith he doesn't marry too many. But he was known to be a very sharp young man and he shattered the prophets lie Selim and his father was very close to the prophets lie some so one of the famous Hadith that we have about a neuroanatomical Bashir, is that his father gave him a gift in the presence of the prophets why Selim? And the prophets lie Selim says, Have you given a gift to any to his siblings as well? Or did you just give a gift to him? And he said, No, I've only given it to Norman and the profit slice and I walked away and he said, I refuse to witness this trip. I refuse to witness you

00:06:42--> 00:07:07

even giving him this gift. This is injustice. So we take a ruling from Northern Ireland membership is the most famous ruling, which is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us that if we give a gift to one of our children, we have to give a gift to the other children as well. So no matter Missy was only eight years old when the Prophet sly son passed away but he lived on to be someone that was recognized for his for his truthfulness for his trustworthiness or his taqwa

00:07:09--> 00:07:49

and became a scholar in the religion in many different ways and lived obviously for a very long time, which is why we'll have this narration in this regard. So he said, seminary taught us all along sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I heard the Prophet slice Allah say, and in fact Halle Berry it's narrated that he actually pointed to his ears I heard the prophets lie some say myself and hello they in will haram being that which is permitted is halal is clear and that which is prohibited that which is haram is clear. Well may not Houma will shut the heart and between them are doubtful things another narration is much a shabby hot Okay, well shut the hot water shabby hot that

00:07:49--> 00:08:27

between halal and haram there's a gray area there are there are doubtful things now Yamaha cathedral Mennonites, a lot of people don't know those things. They have no knowledge of the meaning they can't distinguish what's halal, what's haram and what's a Shabbat they can't distinguish what's permitted, what's prohibited, and what is what is in the gray area. So the Prophet slice and M says to whoever saves himself from these more Shabbat, whoever keeps away from these doubtful things in their religion. They protect their religion, and they protect their honor and their reputation. So they protect their deen and they protect their elders, they protect their reputation as well. And

00:08:27--> 00:08:37

whoever indulges in these doubtful things, they are like a shepherd, that grazes their animals near the hammer. And the hammer is the you know,

00:08:38--> 00:09:10

if any of you have ever been around shepherds, and you've been around areas where there are a lot of sheep, and there are a lot of pastors and things of that sort, not pastors with pastors, right, particularly in the Middle East, you know, I see this all the time, even if you notice in Saudi on the way between Mecca and Medina and things of that sort. And we're in Texas to err in the south. So you might see this as well, you've got the cows, and you've got the animals that roam freely, and then you've got the fence. And even though the fence is not necessarily like high, high security, it's very clear that this is it's trespassing if you go beyond that fence, so you might have the

00:09:10--> 00:09:52

same animals on both sides. But that little fence there, that represents the hammer, right? That's the private property of the owner. And so the prophets lie Selim says that it's like a shepherd, who grazes as his animals near the hammer or someone else. So he's coming close to the hammer of someone else. And he says that if he continues to graze around it, if he stays on the border all the time, if he's always right around there, then he's bound to fall within it. And he said, Sal, Allahu alayhi wa salam. So people be beware, every king has a hammer. Every King has an area of their pelvis or has a restricted area which belongs only to them and their confidence or whatever it is,

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

but every king has a restricted area has an area that no one is meant to cross except those who he chooses. And he said

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

As the hammer of Allah, the sanctuary of Allah, the restricted area of Allah subhanaw taala are the things that he's made haram or the things that he's made prohibited. Meaning what if you encroach upon the haram? When you when you, when you are guilty of doing something that's prohibited, you're in some sort of capacity, you know, being disobedient and in a way you can even be waging war on Allah subhanaw taala. That's why a lot of parents are refers to Riba, for example, your first two interest in usury as a war between Allah subhanaw taala and the messenger slice of them and the person that's using Riba in any way that's using interest or usury in any way, so every single

00:10:41--> 00:11:16

action, every single one of them will have a lot every single one of the prohibited things, is an act of war in and of itself, because a lot told you not to do it, the king told you not to do it, and you did it. So you're indulging in something that's illegal. Think about it in a worldly sense. Okay, you're entering a territory that's illegal for you to enter you're doing something that the king has forbidden you from doing so the Prophet slice and I'm says that the hammer of Allah, the sanctuary of Allah subhanaw taala, it's not a physical space in this world. Allah is restricted territory is not a physical space in this world. It's metaphysical. Right? It's, it's, it's a

00:11:16--> 00:11:49

spiritual space. And when you encroach upon that space, by doing haram things, you are going to war with the King. You are going to war with Allah subhanaw taala then suddenly, the prophets lie some switches the tone altogether and he says no were enough and just said the mobile he said and and surely, certainly, in the body, there's a piece of flesh either slaughter had Salah had just said do Kulu if that piece of flesh is sound, the entire body will be sound. And he says what either faster, faster,

00:11:50--> 00:12:19

faster than just a do Kulu and if that piece of flesh is is corrupt, everything will be corrupt. He said something like Southern Allah here called verily it is the heart. Okay, so it seems to be a diversion, or it seems to be the profit slice. I'm going in a different direction altogether, but we'll talk about how that's actually not the case. So why does that Buhari Rahim Allah to Allah include this hadith and Kitab Al Imam, it's actually included a few times. Why in the book of faith, does anyone know?

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

Why do you think this is in the book of Eman? What does this have to do with faith?

00:12:24--> 00:12:25

What does this have to do with faith?

00:12:28--> 00:13:08

stronger faith will make you stay away from the mortar shabby hot from the doubtful things. And indulging in the doubtful things will corrupt your faith as we established very early on and Kitab will EMA that sins, decrease your Eman every time you disobey Allah subhanaw taala a part of your Eman is lost and pour out good deeds increase your iman every time you do an act of worship or you do a good deed Allah subhanaw taala increases your faith he increases your email. So when a person has stronger EMA they're less likely to indulge in that gray area. They don't stick around in that gray area very long. And if a person does indulge in those in that gray area, they're bound to fall

00:13:08--> 00:13:35

into haram if you indulge all the time with doubtful things and doubtful things and the gray area you're bound to encroach upon that sanctuary of Allah subhanaw taala numerous times to be in violation many times so it's going to shrink or it's going to decrease your EMA whether you like it or not, and as an amendment hubzilla Human Allah to Allah says He's showing us that as woroch A Laura is a very particular quality

00:13:36--> 00:14:20

is from Canada and EMA and it's from the perfection of EMA. What are is when you leave things out of safety, what are is a quality of being cautious. A person that leaves things that he's not sure are prohibited, but he always likes to take the safe side the side of safety and caution for himself. Why because he's very afraid of violating that sanctuary that Allah subhanaw taala has he's very afraid of encroaching so he stays away from things that might put him into that in the first place. All right, so let's go through the Hadith inshallah Tada, Prophets lie some first set and hello being Halal is clear. That which is halal is clear. So what is halal? What's the definition of

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

something that's permitted? In Islam?

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

Halal is halal.

00:14:26--> 00:14:30

Halal is everything that's not how long What about sunnah. What about

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

Yeah,

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

so as soon as Hala or as Hello son

00:14:41--> 00:14:48

or as Mister Mister Hello, hello. Hello. Nice to have what's How would you give How would you define Hello, you scratch them upon it.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Something we don't use for any kind of action that we're not necessarily the Nords do not get the sense about so there's no it's

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

So the fifth he definition also the definition is that which you're not going, you know, it's not, it's neither going to earn you the displeasure of Allah subhanaw taala or the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. It's just neutral, right? So it's a neutral thing, the definition of Hassan Nana Miata delene on the Monterey, when there is nothing to prove that it's how long so you were upon it. It's not everything. That's not how long but there's nothing to prove that it's not how long sorry. So the definition of Halal is that which you cannot prove, is not how long, okay? And so basically, anything that has no proof of it being impermissible is considered Halal in Islam, and that's why we

00:15:42--> 00:16:04

have a very famous principle maximum our faith and also Phoenicia Alibaba, that the default ruling on anything in our religion is that it's permissible. You don't have to prove that everything is permissible, unless it's in the realm of worship. If it's in the realm of worship, you need to prove that it's legislated. Okay, so and also if so, if someone says to you, you know, is it haram to wear

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

the color blue?

00:16:07--> 00:16:44

Do you have to go find a verse or do you have to go find a Hadith of the Prophet slice? I'm wearing blue? No, because there's nothing to make wearing blue how long? Okay, so and also Phil, Usha Eva. Now, on the other hand, when it comes to worship, acts of worship, also for everybody that attended in the basis of all acts of worship is that they're forbidden unless you can prove them. Why is that so? So if you see someone praying in a certain way, they need to be able to prove that that's legislated in the Quran and the Sunnah when it comes to everything else Allah subhanaw taala has left it open and that's why in Jana for example, Allah subhanaw taala did not tell Adam ani his

00:16:44--> 00:17:26

salaam this trees had this trees Hello, this trees had this tree. The entire garden is Khaled to stay away from this one haram thing. Okay, and that's how Allah subhanaw taala has created us as well, that everything is halal from his mercy, Everything is permissible, unless proven otherwise. Okay, so that's the definition of helot. And hello, buy in the hilarious clear Haram is also clear, how long would be the opposite. Now a lot of them that even the men are eating something with is a narration or there's something from the Quran and the Sunnah, that proves that it's forbidden. So for something to be haram, you have to actually be able to prove that it's forbidden. Now there are

00:17:26--> 00:17:56

things that cannot really you know, be you cannot truly derive that they're disliked. Okay, you can naturally derive that they're disliked. But when it comes to things that are absolutely haram, you need to make sure that there is something where you can prove that it's haram. And I want to make a very, very important point here and it might sound very, it might seem strange to you guys to be hearing this from me. Okay. What's more severe to say something is halal. When you're unsure or to say something is haram when you're unsure.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

Why isn't it better to be safe?

00:18:02--> 00:18:05

Why is it worse to say something is haram than to say it's something is haram

00:18:08--> 00:18:45

because by default, there are more things that are halal, and haram to use the word haram recklessly to say something is forbidden without it actually being forbidden, is restricting the Mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah you are acting as a representative of the king. You're restricting the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala so you might have an embassy to hang Allah to Allah says that to falsely portray something to be haram. It's very easy to just say how long, how long, how long, how long, how long. This is how long this is haram This is halal. And of course it's not the same as you know, there's there's a language haram and there's a filthy there's the language haram like when you when

00:18:45--> 00:18:54

you see your kid fall and they they bust their knee and you say yeah, how long? Alright, you don't actually mean how long they're okay, are you saying Hamdulillah you know

00:18:55--> 00:19:33

he deserves it hopefully that'll teach him a lesson right? But you say yeah all you know you don't really mean how long like how long in the true sense also linguistically the profit slice and I'm being told the Metro how to handle Allah who like why are you making forbidden on yourself that which is permissible for you prophesy somebody not legislate something haram for himself? It's the linguistic sense. Okay, when he said this honey is haram for me. So there's Hatim in the in the legal sense and just the usage of the word haram but it is very, very dangerous for a person and this is a warning to the entire to the entire Ummah, not just the not just the scholars or the

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

layman to use the word haram recklessly is very, very dangerous. Okay, it's very dangerous. So you can say like Buddha like I don't like that and actually mount Rahim Allah to Allah was known to say him without it I don't like that. And when he says love with Eric most scholars would say he really means how long but he was too afraid to say how long have you imagine Imam Rahim Allah would be too afraid to use the word haram. So he would say look, I don't like it. I personally don't like it.

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

Okay, and that's why in some of the some of the language of Philip and some of the language of Islamic jurisprudence, some scholars when they said mcru When they said something is disliked their students derived that they meant it was haram, but they were too afraid to say it was haram because it's very risky to actually define something as being haram. That's, of course in the matter of, you know, the gray areas, there are things that are clearly haram in the Quran and the Sunnah and so on so forth. But when a person actually ventured into start to to say rulings as dangerous to say something's halal or something's haram when you're not qualified to do so in the first place, but

00:20:34--> 00:21:15

it's not it's not okay. To be self righteous and to keep saying haram, haram haram haram haram Hello. All right, it's very dangerous because you're restricting the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala when you when you do that, okay. And Allah subhanaw taala mentions to us in the Quran that you know, there are some people that say that Albania is just like Canada This is that buying and selling is just like interest he says, Well I hadn't along layer will help them that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah made a layer he made buying and selling halal and he made riba haram he made interest haram. Now then here's the question What is this gray area that if How loud is clear and how long is clear?

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

What is the gray area that so is there hello. Is buying and selling hada?

00:21:23--> 00:21:33

It depends. So Bear is halal in and of itself. But it has to be identifiable as beer. You understand River is the river

00:21:36--> 00:22:17

I just told you guys about my saying I don't know is how long Okay. Rivers haram you can say that was haram. Yeah. Okay. It was haram interest is haram. But is that particular thing river or not? That's where the problem can you identify that particular transaction or that particular money as being rebuffed or not? That's where it gets in the gray area. Right? So it's not about the object itself. We know that there is Hello. That's what the prophets lie some means when he says 100 billion. The Halal is clear, you know that this transaction is valid, you know that this transaction is haram. Now you've got all these things in the gray area, do you identify it as they are or do you

00:22:17--> 00:23:00

identify it as an ABA? Alright, that's just that's just an example when you're talking about the the halal and haram and that gray area so the problem is almost debit or and Musa which is which is that which is doubtful the gray area and with the shabby huts or animal Shabbat. Now, the word doubtful here, it's really there are different words for doubt in the Quran and the Sunnah. There is a sec, check is down. But this particular delta shabiha is particularly referring to something that you can't tell whether it's hello or Hello. All right, you can't tell whether it's another huddle. So what are some what are some things that the scholars identify as doubt? The first thing that the

00:23:00--> 00:23:39

prophets lie Selim is referring to here. Because he said sal Allahu Salam and this particular Hadith lie Allah Maha cafiero. Mina knows, a lot of people can't tell whether or not it's hot out there, how long. The first thing the prophets lie some is talking about is the individual Muslim, being you know, encountering a situation where they don't know whether they can do it or they can't do it. They're not scholars, they're not ident they don't have their enum they don't have the knowledge to be able to really decipher the situation. So they're presented with a situation and they don't know whether it's halal or haram. And back then they didn't have phones they didn't have that was search

00:23:39--> 00:24:14

engines. But even now with that, it doesn't mean that you can just figure it out by taking out your phone and searching Google until you find your footwork to to decide what to do. You encounter a situation and you don't know whether it's Hello there. Hello. Okay. So this is what the prophets lie some means when he says Allah, Allah Maha cathedral meanness a lot of people don't know how to distinguish why because the scholars might know the ruling. You know, you're sitting at a restaurant and a particular type of animal is presented. You don't know if that animal is allowed to eat or how long to eat. Right? You've got some weird you know, we're in the South. Michelle, I'm from Louisiana

00:24:14--> 00:24:45

you get all types of stuff sorted on your plate. All right, you don't know if this particular animal is from the things that are allowed to eat or from the things that are haram tea let's leave the best one and there's a visa issue to the side for a moment all right, you don't know you have you already know whether yours will be her nones will be her whatever it is, you already know whether you eat in a restaurant or you know it has to be Muslim or so and so forth. But is this animal had other haram? Is it okay for me to eat this animal or not? So the first thing you do is you pull out your phone, you start texting, you know, hopefully you don't text other people that are not scholars

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

as well to try to figure it out. You might take someone that you know, and I don't know what to do Shift. Is this halal or haram? Whatever it may be. Most likely the chef isn't going to have the time to be your hotline, your federal hotline. You're confused. What do you do?

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Don't eat it. Don't do it. Very clear. All right. Now that's obviously a very simple situation. Okay, that's a very simple situation. But let's say it's a more serious thing that's being presented to you.

00:25:14--> 00:25:51

If you don't know what to do, or if you find yourself in a situation where this might be okay, and it might not be okay, and I don't know, because I've never really studied or heard this or anything like that. Always opt for safety. You know what, I'm not going to do it. Okay, I'm not sure if this is okay to do or not, I'm not going to do it. Don't sit there and try to validate what you want to do at that moment, take a step back and say, I'm not going to do it right now. So that's the first one. So in this regard, the ruling itself is not necessarily unclear, but your knowledge of the ruling is unclear. You understand? So the ruling might be very clear, the scholars might have a

00:25:51--> 00:26:06

consensus on it might even be an issue. It's not of consensus, but you don't know whether it's held out or how long you yourself, have found yourself in the gray area, take a step back and don't do it. The second one is when the thing itself is doubtful and its circumstances.

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

So the ruling is clear that in the first situation, the ruling is clear, but you're unaware of it. First situation ruling is clear, but you're unaware of it. Second situation, the ruling is clear, but the circumstances surrounding it are unclear. So for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam talked about a Moroccan lip, the dog that you send out for hunting. If you send out a dog and you say, Bismillah, when you send out your dog to hunt for you, and you go and you find that dog and you find the animal, you found you found the hunted animal.

00:26:41--> 00:26:53

You never really saw the dog kill that animal for you. Right or hunt for you. But you see your dog and you see that animal? Can you assume that it's okay to eat from that animal or not?

00:26:57--> 00:26:58

Because we're gonna talk a lot about food today.

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

What's that?

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

The dog killed How do you know that?

00:27:07--> 00:27:15

How do you know there wasn't an armed protester in front of the masjid and he turned around and saw saw an animal and shot it. Well, there's no gunshot wound, okay.

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

What do you do? Is it halal for you to eat it or not? You said Bismillah. You sent your hunting dog out. And you went and you found the dog and you found the animal? What's that?

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

Salad. You guys agree?

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

It's a Bismillah and don't eat it. Don't eat the dog or don't eat the animal.

00:27:40--> 00:27:54

It's healthy to eat in that situation. However, the prophets lie Selim says, if you sent out if you said Bismillah and you sent out your dog to go and you know, hunt an animal. And then you got there and you found your dog and you found another dog.

00:27:56--> 00:28:02

One of the prophets I saw him say, meaning you don't know which dog attack the animal is ahead others Hello.

00:28:04--> 00:28:09

Flip a coin and have coins back. Actually, they did have coins back then. What do you do?

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

At that point, the prophets like some said you don't eat it.

00:28:14--> 00:28:50

Why? Because there's no precedent there. You there's no way to tell which one of the dogs attacked the animal. All right, you really can't tell which one kill and you don't know if that other dog was sent out in the name of Allah subhanaw taala or not. So the prophets lysozyme said you don't eat it. It's an authentic hadith. And it's really interesting. And it gives us actually some some 50% So I said Chuck is not exactly the same doubt is not exactly the same. But one of the one of the one of the issues in our religion is the opinion is a little bit shuck that certainty is not overruled by doubt. If you're if you're certain about something, no matter how strong your doubt becomes, or if

00:28:50--> 00:29:27

you've seen something, no matter how strong your doubt becomes, you you go with the precedent. What that means is this. All right. What that means is when I sent out my dog to kill that, that animal I sent it out on the basis that this dog is hunting for me in the name of Allah subhanaw taala there is nothing to really counter there's a precedent there. Okay, there's nothing to really counter the idea that that dog was the one that killed that animal. So even if I have my doubts inside of me and I start to say, well, maybe, you know, maybe something happened to that animal maybe it just, you know, a loss pennant I've just decided that it's life with and there. There is nothing at that

00:29:27--> 00:29:56

point. All right, because you've got a precedent in the situation where your dog is there and the other dog is there. And please don't go by hunting dogs and don't start fighting pit bulls against each other and stuff like that and get us in trouble. All right. But the point is, is that in this this is a tradition of setting up the hunting dogs right? There is nothing to establish whether it was your dog or that dog or anything of that sort. So the profit slice some said Leave it altogether. Okay. That's why in this religion for example, okay, is there a difference between

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

I made will do and I'm not sure

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

If I lost my mojo, or I'm not sure if I made me do it in the first place. There's a difference. Isn't there? An hour Diem? Okay. According to the majority of the football, let's say that I made will do two hours ago, I remember making the door. I think I might have broken my window, but I'm not sure.

00:30:21--> 00:30:23

Do you have to make window again? Or do you not have to make will do again.

00:30:25--> 00:31:02

You don't have to make will do again, you will do as valid. Okay. Now, let's say two hours later, you're like, I think I made two hours ago. I remember using the restroom I remember, you know, but I think I might have made will do two hours ago do you have to do or do you not have the door? You don't have? Okay, why? Because you go back to the precedent. And once you have the precedent there, then nothing really steers you away from your precedent. Okay, that's that's in fact now just kind of diverted into the realm of film. But going back to the Hadith, there are things that are doubtful in their circumstances. Okay. You're not sure. So for example, let's go to let's let's not talk

00:31:02--> 00:31:39

about dogs killing and not dogs not killing, for example, you know, there's a hukum if it was as simple in our religion, as you know, when you slaughter an animal, say Bismillah. And when you don't slaughter an animal, do you have to say the name of Allah or not. So according to mama Shafi Rahim, Allah to Allah, the animal would still be allowed to eat if a person slaughtered it, not in the name of another God, but they didn't say Bismillah according to the other three emails, that you have to say, Bismillah whenever you slaughter an animal, right, the problem is not there. The problem is, do I know whether or not this animal meets my certain requirements or not? So that's where the entire

00:31:39--> 00:31:57

50 discussion becomes. So there are things that are doubtful and circumstances the rulings are clear on them. Right. But it's not textual, because at this point, it's come into the real world and it's taken on all sorts of different shades and colors and so on so forth, and I can't tell anymore. Then the third thing there's something that's doubtful and it's hurtful.

00:31:58--> 00:32:35

Its downfall in the ruling itself, meaning the scholars differ over some scholars say Tada, some scholars say Tada. Alright, and there are things that that are very, very polarizing, very polarizing, filthy issues, very polarizing issues in jurisprudence. So some scholars say Tada, some scholars say It's haram. And at that point, you know, let's say that I have you know, I'm following a scholar, I'm following a chef consistently in my shifts as his head on and my sinful for taking his holiday, or am I am I am I being insincere by taking his hat off? Even though there's another chef that says, Hello? No, because I'm consistent, it's a methodology. But what the scholars did

00:32:35--> 00:33:08

prohibit was it to bow Rojas, which is to go and look for the easiest opinion on everything. Let me find the shift that says it's halal every single time. And if I find someone that says is Hara, then that's what I'm gonna go with. Okay? So one day, you're this one that you're that so you know, the way that the one of my teachers used to say this, you're falling in love and back behind me, you're not following my mother, honey, female, or the American, you're you're not following any mom. It's just whatever Imam gives you what you know, it's like a Baskin Robbins type of deal. Whatever he gives you. He gives you what you want, what you want to hear, you're gonna go and follow that email

00:33:08--> 00:33:44

for that day, the moment that Imam says something, you don't want to be haram, you go, and you find in the amount of that says this issue is hella, so a person that goes and tries to find the easiest opinion everywhere, that's actually that can actually be sinful, that can actually be sinful, because that's a Tibetan or shallot that's you're following your desires. And a person only inclines towards a Shabbat, which are the doubtful matters for the sake of their shouts for the sake of their desires. Because their desires are very strong, their commitment is very little. So they'll go in, they'll find the doubtful matters that allows them to fulfill their desires. Okay, so these are the

00:33:44--> 00:34:25

different levels of doubt. Now what the profit slice of them says at this point, what he's talking about, you stay away from the gray area, anytime you can stay away from a great area period, you are rewarded. And hello, John and clean off he musta have to leave any area of difference of opinion, is rewardable. Meaning what an issue gets presented to you. Some scholars say it's Some scholars say It's haram. You can see why it could be highlighted, you can see why it could be haram. But you decide you know what I'm not saying it's haram, but I'm saying I'm not going to do it and I'm gonna seek the reward from Allah subhanaw taala that according to all of the other mountain, the religion

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

is rewardable you would actually be rewarded for that. Whether you're right or wrong, let's say that it was handed the entire time. But for the sake of your own Tuckwell for the sake of your own religion, you said, You know what, I want to be on the safe side. I'm going to leave it I'm not going to make it haram for anybody else, but I'll make it haram for myself. Because the tradition of the scholars as had been misused all the Allah Animus is very beautifully, that a person is harsh on himself and lenient with others. I might hold you to a very lenient standard. But for myself, I'm going to hold myself to a very harsh standard. Now we do it the opposite. We're lenient with

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

ourselves. We're very easy

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

We forgive ourselves and make excuses for ourselves. But everything else that other person is doing is haram. The hypocrisy of the outward looking eyes what they call it, okay, where you see what everyone else is doing and then you don't see what you yourself are doing. So you overlook yourself and everything that you do and you focus on what everyone else is doing. So you should be strict on yourself. And you should be lenient with others. Okay? So anytime you can leave things that are in the gray area, it's better for you, it's better for your religion, there is no doubt about it, you're holding yourself to a better standard. Now realize here the prophets lie. Some said in the

00:35:35--> 00:35:44

Hadith he protects himself from he protects his deen and he protects his or he protects his religion, and he protects his reputation.

00:35:46--> 00:36:05

Why is it enabled? Why is honor being mentioned here? How do you protect your honor by staying away from the doubtful things? What do you guys think? How do you protect your honor? Now we know from Dean there's Knox you probably protect yourself from deficiency in your religion. So you're not compromising any of your religion. But what about adults?

00:36:07--> 00:36:20

When they see us something like in the hustle of the year, Zack Allah, excellent. So people start to look at you when you're indulging always in that gray area. And you start to lose the respect of the people as well.

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

And RIA is when you go and you seek the praise of people. All right, that's how long but you know what else in our religion, there is a sense of preservation of dignity. Don't ruin yourself. If you're sinning and you're messing up in life, don't expose yourself seek seek protection from Allah subhanaw taala. ask Allah for forgiveness, don't go put yourself on blast. So you start to be the subject of people's discussions, people start to point to you in certain ways, and you start to compromise your reputation. So you protect your Dean from a knocks and you protect your elbow from a barn from people actually abusing you and saying, look at him, look at her, so on so forth. And if

00:36:56--> 00:37:28

you're always around those doubtful things, people will actually assume that you're doing harm and you're doing other things as well. Okay, that you're actually doing things that are far worse than that you start to lower your own self in a way that's not praiseworthy. So the prophets lie. Some said you end up compromising your deen, which is between you and Allah, and your L, which is between you and the people. So you end up compromising it all if you indulge too much in the gray area of things. Now, there's some things that we find from the self in this regard, um, that have not been overhauled the law on we know how rich he was right? Um, the amount of an oath is a man that walks

00:37:28--> 00:38:06

into Medina. And just you know, he looks up, you know, the saying of an oath is that probably alone, we could turn over a stone and he would find gold under I mean, the guy could make money with anything. All right, he can go into any marketplace, he could go into any transaction, and he's always going to profit. He's just a very smart businessman, a very ethical businessman, and someone that makes a lot of money doing what he does. But you know what I'm not even Oh says people admiring his millions and billions of dollars. I mean, he was a billionaire by that standard by the standard of his time. So relatively speaking of an oath or the law and it was a billionaire. And his caravan,

00:38:06--> 00:38:12

the amount of camels and things that he owned when he used to come back to Medina, people would think they're being attacked by an army.

00:38:13--> 00:38:22

Like that's how much he owns what you know what he says. He says, Tarragona this Valhalla cash shaytan on behalf of terminal River,

00:38:23--> 00:38:30

that I left out there half of Halal transactions out of fear of riba meaning you think this is a lot, it could have been a lot more.

00:38:31--> 00:38:49

I could have doubled what you see here, but I was too afraid of getting involved in it. I was too involved. I was too afraid of that touching interest. So I stayed away from that as well. So that's in financial transactions. And there are different things as well. There's a saying from Imam Hassan Abbas Rahim Allah to Allah where he says,

00:38:52--> 00:39:33

he says, or I'm sorry, this is actually my beloved Alma, it'll be a long time. He says in the little hippo and other urbini We're banal Harami cetera. He says that I like to keep between me and how long like a veil. Okay, I like to keep between me and how about me and how long me and that which is forbidden, avail and he said, and that sitter is Meenal halal, it's from that which is permissible. I know it's permissible. It's like I can see it and he says La fuqaha. I'm not going to go beyond that. Meaning what I always take a step back, and I want to make sure that I'm not transgressing any bounds. So I just leave this curtain of Halal here. And any anytime it starts to go in the gray

00:39:33--> 00:39:59

area, I just stop there unless I can define something as an as being Khaled for sure I just stay away from it altogether as a means of keeping me protected from the hubbub and the profit slice and I mentioned this as a state of Taqwa. This is a very beautiful Hadith and Sunnah Timothy and Hebrew Marja. And it's Hassan Hadith, authentic hadith. He said it his Salatu was Salam, la yellowblue hula Abdu ano akuna minal Moroccan Hatha Yoga

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

Nyla sabe he have run Lima V hills. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that a person will not reach the status of a person of Taqwa a person who has true piety in their heart. A person who's truly in awe of Allah subhanaw taala and fears Allah they want reach, being from the mortality in from the people of Taqwa until they refrain from doing things that they're that there is no sin when they leave things, that there is no medicine, Hatha Yoga malaba servie have gone may have run Lima be healed us out of fear that they might fall into something that is haram that does have a sin in it. So the prophets lie. Some says that's how you reach a state of Taqwa. So the prophets lie some is

00:40:42--> 00:41:20

mentioning. This is the standard of Taqwa. This is the standard of Taqwa. Why is that? How do we define Taqwa? What's the definition of Taqwa the definition of piety in our religion? Very famous definition from Arts narrative from Armadyl. The law from Hubble Rayleigh as well, that a person walks between these thorny bushes and they hold themselves tight. They hold themselves tight. Why? Because they don't want to fall into the disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala. So when you're holding yourself tight, as you're walking down this path where there are thorns everywhere, you're leaving a safe distance between you and those thorns. You want to make sure that you're not going

00:41:20--> 00:41:57

anywhere close to those doors. Well I talked about with Xena don't go anywhere near adultery. Right. You want to make sure that you're not going near those thorns at all. You want to keep a safe distance between yourself and it's and so that's a form of Taqwa. And that's the standard that you hold yourself to fatwa is the standard of the of the people. The fatwa is what's binding on the people meaning the religious ruling that's given by the scholar of that place or the scholar of that time, or the scholar that that group of people goes to. That's their standard. Okay, that's their standard. But your individual standard is taqwa, your individual standard is your piety. Right is

00:41:57--> 00:42:05

that you want to be safe and you want to be cautious. And that's always something that's rewardable. And what is the measure of Taqwa Where is taqwa? Where's Taqwa to be found?

00:42:07--> 00:42:48

A prophet saw slice and I'm says at the top 100. A tough or hard winner, a Taqwa How tough was in your hearts, that fear and all the lots in your heart. There are things that are identifiable as actions of tequila and there are things that are contradictory to tequila. But at the end of the day, taqwa is in your heart, which is why the sudden turn in the Hadith where the prophets lie Selim says, that verily within the person that within the body, there's a piece of flesh, either Salah hut, Salah, hell, Josiah, do Kulu if it is good, then the entire body will be good. And if it is bad, everything will be bad. And the scholars say two things here they say, you could read this

00:42:48--> 00:43:27

hadith in two ways. One of them is that when a person indulges in Shubo heart when they indulge in these doubtful matters, eventually their hearts will be corrupted, and everything will be corrupted as well. So that's one way to read the Hadith. The other lesson is that if a person's heart is perverted, and a person's heart is corrupted, then they will seek to pervert the religion in a way that's that that serves their corruption, which they're both true both of these meanings are indeed true, which is why I lost prints I mentioned for example, that the Quran increases the hypocrite in his hypocrisy. When a person is a Manasa. When a person is a hypocrite, the Quran is you know that

00:43:27--> 00:44:03

that's a model, it actually increases them in disease. Why? Because the hypocrite is not listening to the Quran and not listening to religious teaching, with the intention of bettering himself by it are coming close to Allah subhanaw taala the hypocrite is listening to that religious teaching, waiting to hear something he can abuse to get something else in this dunya How can I abuse this so that I can get more in this world so it can actually increase you and disease? And last time mentioned to us in the Quran, and Sunnah it's early Emraan you guys think about it first page of swords at Enron. There's a strong connection between the heart and Shubo heart.

00:44:04--> 00:44:04

Does anyone know?

00:44:11--> 00:44:14

That's that's that's literal, but first pages with Arman.

00:44:15--> 00:44:59

AlLadhina ficolo V hem ze one for your Tabby Runa Natasha Bahaman, Huberty la el Pfitzner. Weber de la Plata weedy. When I animate widow in LA ALLAH, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says people that have a corrupt a corruption in their hearts. You know, we asked a lot or been allowed to zip Kaluga but it had eaten Oh Allah don't let our hearts deviate after we've been guided. So Allah Subhana Allah says people who have deviation in their hearts, what do they do with the religion? They go to things that are unclear. They purposely seek out the gray areas. They don't try and look tacky. A person of tuck West stays away from the gray area altogether. Even if he's not sure and he thinks it's hot. When he

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

says you know what?

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

Just from my safe my safety, I'm going to stay away from it. But a person who's diseased a person who has deviation in their heart, what do they do? They go looking for things that can go in different ways. They don't, they don't stick to the mark them, they go to them with a sharpie, they don't stick to the things that are set. They go to the things that can go both ways. And they spin those things in all types of directions to corrupt either the theology or to corrupt the jurisprudence to corrupt the theology. You know, a very, very clear example of someone that claims to be the Messiah claims to be the Messiah. Okay, I actually talk about this in the Messiah class

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

when I teach it that every person in Islamic history that's claimed to be a messy that's claimed to be the Messiah. They did two things number one,

00:45:46--> 00:46:24

or everyone that claimed that Eastside Islam was not at the mercy they did two things. That number one, they took a they took an ambiguous verse, are an ambiguous word. I need what Tiller fika or raffia Okay, Ilya, we're lost Pantai says to recite some I'm giving you what that and I'm bringing you to me and what that can mean death or it can mean sleep. So they said it means that so they ignored well Nakata Lu masala boo they ignored when the whole day when the SA they ignore it, why not pursue your Pina they ignored every other clear cut verse that Eastside Islam was not killed, and that isa Islam will return for the sake of an ambiguous word, and spend it in a way that they

00:46:24--> 00:46:44

could deny or Eastside Islam from being that and you know what else they claimed to be the Messiah themselves. Throughout our Islamic history, no one has ever claimed that our isa Islam was not the Messiah, except that they claimed to be the Messiah instead. All right, so yet they seek to corrupt the theology or they seek to corrupt the folk. Right? It's like the people that say wheat is not haram.

00:46:45--> 00:46:49

Why? Because Hamid is just referring to wine. It's not referring to like, Hey, hello,

00:46:50--> 00:47:09

talks about the head, intoxication, things that make you unable to control your mind. It includes everything. It's not just a drink, you know, but it really just means this. I've actually seen in my own with my own two eyes, someone drinking vodka. And he said, It's not haram. I said, why? He said, Because the prophets lie, some said only if it's made from grapes.

00:47:10--> 00:47:48

So it really took a hadith and he abused it. And guess what it works for him. And there is no way you're going to convince that person otherwise, why? Because they want to drink. Why? Because they want to smoke. Why? Because they don't want this to be Zina. They don't want this to be adultery. So of course, they're going to make a way for it to not be adultery, right. If you don't want something to be haram, then you're going to find a way if your desire is stronger than your commitment, you're going to find a way due to the deviation in your heart to stretch that text as much as you can to accommodate your desire. Right, you will stretch it in any way possible, because you really, really,

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

really, really want it to be had.

00:47:51--> 00:48:27

And that's that's beyond confirmation bias. It just goes way beyond I mean, you will stretch everything, every story of the Prophet, nothing will be nothing will be off limits. And that's why I lost contact says about 18 minutes after that Eli, who, however, there's some people that worship their desires. And that's one of the ways of worshipping your desires is that you'll actually start to use your desires to corrupt the religion and corrupt the text and corrupt and make the stretches to accommodate your desire. Instead of acknowledging the standard and trying to work to it. You'll bring it down so that it's okay. So you have to you have to be your own or they seek with the fitna

00:48:27--> 00:49:04

and they seek with it we need they seek with it to to to give false interpretations and false explanations. And that's the opposite of Taqwa. Right? The Taqwa is when something is actually seems pretty clear, it seems like it could be held on I see why this can be helot. But you know what, for me out there are a considerable amount of scholars that say It's haram, I can see why they say It's haram, I don't really need this in my life. I'm gonna stay away from it, because it's better for my Eman to do so it's better for my chocolate. So it's the opposite of a person who actually digs into the text to deviate and to find things and to corrupt things as a result of their uncontrollable

00:49:04--> 00:49:20

desires. In conclusion here, the beautiful connection between the Hadith that we covered last time, and this hadith, the Hadith that we covered last time, was Huracan asking Abu Sufyan does anyone leave the faith if it enters into their hearts,

00:49:21--> 00:49:57

and they are delighted by it in their hearts? Do they ever leave it softer turn mendini or softer to Nandini? Because they're displeased with the faith? And other Soufiane said, No. The problem is in the heart. In this hadith, the prophets lie Selim says a person he's basically telling us a person will only look for loopholes to get out of a religious obligation if they don't feel like the religion is fulfilling in and of itself. It's how can I escape the religion as much as possible while still identifying what that means that it's not entering into the heart. So the prophets like Selim says if you connect him with his words to the prophets license, where it says no one leaves a

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

true religion if it enters into their heart and look

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Honestly some says at the end of this hadith, that within the body, there's a piece of flesh if it is good, everything else will be good and if it is bad, everything else will be bad. Well he rarely it is the heart we ask Allah subhanaw taala to correct our hearts and to and to keep us on the straight path and to not let us go straight. One more Hadith I mentioned to you guys, the prophets lie some says an authentic hadith either will eater Lavina yet to be Aruna Mata Shah Bahaman who Allah He can living in Assam Mala fact the room prophets why some recited the ashram says earlier Milani said when you see people that starts to stretch the text because of the diseases and the

00:50:39--> 00:51:11

deviations in their heart. When you see people start messing with the text and breaking through consensus and breaking through the Sunnah and breaking through 1400 years of scholarship, they just start stretching and doing all types of things. The prophets I said, those are the people I lost talking about, follow him, stay away from them, stay away from them, meaning if a person has decided to purposely delude themselves, don't let them take you on a ride as well. Stay away. Stick to caution stick to that which is safe. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us and protect our hearts Lama Amin questions

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

for me.

00:51:16--> 00:51:16

The hadith

00:51:18--> 00:51:46

is addressing the people, the general Muslim people because especially after the area that people if they can sell this is halal, or haram money and for the gray area does require knowledge. Yes to be able to sell. So now all we have is that most of the general person, the general community, but they know it's a well known for everybody that this is halal. And Haram is the same

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

is to

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

be heard has that oh,

00:51:51--> 00:52:07

you know, not doing it or doing it? This is like different from a personal little than something if you do it. Okay, and somebody might follow you something common, then there is a different tool for it. And how many times this way?

00:52:10--> 00:52:45

Very good. Alright, so the question, will you kind of lost me a little bit, but I hope I'll try to rephrase the question. So I'll tell there. I'll try to get back to you. So you mentioned first and foremost who is the audience of this hadith? Is it the IOM? Is it the commoners in the Muslim ummah? Or is it the scholars? Is it those who can identify? And then they try to make a way out? Or is it those who can't identify a lot? And the prophets lie some kind of giving them a warning layer lemma, Kathy Roman and us and then how do we find? How do we fit into this facility ahead of the Korean Quinta Monogatari, I'm going to ask the people of knowledge. If you don't know any better, the

00:52:45--> 00:52:46

Hadith applies to.

00:52:48--> 00:53:22

There is no full source here. There's not a single person, it really does apply to everyone. That's why there are different levels of doubt. Now, if a person purposely abuses the text, this is a hypocrite, to purposely abuse the text as you're not, you're not just spending time around that, that sanctuary, the hem of Allah subhanaw taala. You're there. You're purposely there and you're causing destruction in that sanctuary. And you're trying to corrupt the religion for the sake of your desires. That's, that's the greatest degree of a sick heart. Right. And that's, that's the person whose heart is that. Right? And that's what I was mentioning here that this is the furthest

00:53:22--> 00:53:33

degree from Taqwa. All right. Now you have on the other side. For the believer, they are Namaha cathedral man and asked when a person is not sure whether something is halal or haram.

00:53:34--> 00:53:50

Do they have the honesty with themselves? The honesty with themselves and the the the fear of losing their faith, that they're willing to take a step back and say, You know what, it's better for me to avoid this even if chef so and so says it's hella

00:53:51--> 00:54:27

All right. And I think he's a knowledgeable scholar. Right? And he says it's okay. But something inside of me is just not comfortable with it. And I'm still afraid for my Eman. So I'm not gonna say Schiff doesn't know what he's talking about. I'm just gonna say ignore it for the sake of myself. I'm going to abstain that person is rewarded there. Now where does phys ed Oh ALLAH decree in quantum with himself make a decision or spread the word no, only with himself only with himself. Why is something between you and Allah subhanaw taala What are is between you and Allah? That's the whole point. Don't make things hard for everyone else. make things hard on yourself as much as you

00:54:27--> 00:54:49

want. Don't make things hard from everyone else. You know, I'll tell you guys um Subhanallah within within the meat issue and things of that sort, is it halal is halal and so on so forth. Now we're in Dallas and Hamdulillah we don't have this dilemma because it's my shell lungs everywhere right? Walmart has Crescent chicken and stuff like that now right in Crescent me but you know, where people really have to make a very conscious decision.

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

There are legitimate scholars on both sides of this debate. There really are legitimate scholars heavyweights not not some Google che Han on either side. They're legitimate scholars. There's mental health issue.

00:55:00--> 00:55:22

is here there's deep on both sides of this opinion, is a person going to take a step back and say, You know what, Hamdulillah I can eat fish and I can eat vegetables, but I'm not gonna go tell everyone else who chooses to take the lenient opinion. You're eating haram, you're this, you're that you're not going to be able to enter Jannah because you have had a lot of meat inside. Have you actually heard this being sent to someone before? Right?

00:55:23--> 00:55:58

Are you going to be that person? Are you just gonna say, you know, for the sake of myself, I know this is a good chef, Mashallah. He's a good scholar. I respect him. I love him. But you know what, for myself, I'm going to take a step back and I'm going to be safe, because I can do it and I feel comfortable doing it, that's praiseworthy. That's praiseworthy. That's most to have. That's what that's that takes something that's merely Khaled and makes it Mr. Humphrey makes it rewardable. Even if you showed up on a day of judgment, and the other person or it did, it did indeed, indeed turn out to be something that was. So there's the standard of the shift first, and the way that you

00:55:58--> 00:56:26

protect your faith, honestly, and this is not, I'm not, you know, I'm not talking about asking me in particular, okay, you have mashallah shaky acid in this message. Okay. So everyone leaves me alone. I'm not sure he asked questions. But you have a scholar, or someone that's trained in the tradition that you trust, you safeguard yourself by asking him anytime you have a questionable matter, and you ask the same person every time. That way, you're not finding loopholes every time. Right. And that's what

00:56:30--> 00:57:06

Subhan Allah, my badeen, sudden, hasha this is this is a rule within the madhhab. That the madhhab the school of thought of the army of, of the commoner, is multiple shaping as the makeup of a chef. It's the school of thought of a ship. That's how I protect myself by constantly going to that person that way. If he tells me is haram, like I said, let me go find the other show. Because I'm sticking consistent, that's a way to be safe. That's the way to stick to a methodology as opposed to let me go find someone that's going to always give me the easy way out. So let the scholars do their job to diagnose the situation, for the alarm for everybody. But then for yourself, try to always take the

00:57:06--> 00:57:45

safe side. You know, somehow one of the most profound things I've ever read in a solo book was by a raise of Nanda salaam, where there is a blob, the salam Rahim Allah to Allah He said that the scholar even if he takes a strict opinion for himself, he should be happy that a lenient opinion exists, so that it will accommodate people that otherwise would be doing haram they'd otherwise be sinful in the sight of Allah subhana time. So even if I believe something is haram, based on my judgment based on my again text, I'm in a position to to actually analyze texts and things of that sort. There are times that well, like, seriously, I see someone else that has an opinion that it's

00:57:45--> 00:58:01

haram. I said, hamdulillah because otherwise that person would just give up on it all. So there is an opinion that accommodates that person hamdulillah the religion can accommodate that's the beauty that's where it's enough becomes that's where the difference of opinion becomes if the laugh is not often when people are fighting in the most.

00:58:02--> 00:58:22

Alright, if the life is a rock, no one accommodates people at various levels of EMA to where they're still being compliant. They're still sticking to something that that's within the system and within this order, but for yourself always tried to take the safe route always try to back off and take the safe route and show one sister and then buddy you have a question

00:58:23--> 00:58:24

Hurry up hurry up bring it bring it

00:58:26--> 00:58:27

all right.

00:58:30--> 00:58:32

Oh, God, this would be an odd question.

00:58:34--> 00:58:35

Turn off Facebook.

00:58:36--> 00:58:38

The mics not working? I think we're gonna have to come to class.

00:58:41--> 00:58:59

When you go to somebody's home for dinner and you don't know whether or in you know that they do not eat halal. Again, I'm gonna put Halal in quotation marks because there are differences within what's defined as Halal however they tell you that the meat is halal for those who eat halal way are you allowed to there's too much Halal here alright

00:59:00--> 00:59:02

that means that what's the behind

00:59:04--> 00:59:11

that we have by the Jews so as a kosher as a be held by the Muslims, the Muslims A B has at hand because the V has a machine cut there's a lot

00:59:12--> 00:59:41

you know, added words don't solve the problem in this situation. But however they tell you the meat is halal for those who eat halal. Are you allowed to eat it based on their work? Or do you refrain from eating it because you are in doubt? I'll tell you what you don't do first. What you never do is tell your host that you know is this meat halal? And if the host says this and this and that and then you say oh, okay, and then you you say no your meat is haram and then you start eating the other stuff. Don't offend your host that's about other

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

you walk into a house a Muslim is presenting food to you. As far as you're concerned. The transaction is between you and that Muslim the meat is halal. Regardless you don't even have to ask this is my opinion now and look and I know that there's this is the most heated issue in the Ummah you know, we take our food very seriously

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

Yama in my opinion, if you are eating in the house of a Muslim, that meat is halal by default without you asking any questions. Now if you feel like

01:00:10--> 01:00:47

that's not by your standards Halal by your by your scholars Hello, and you want to abstain just say that you don't feel like eating meat or don't say anything and just eat the other stuff on the table. Okay, but don't offend your host. But as far as the philcare is concerned will log on again the transactions between you and that person at this point, the interactions between you and that person, that person is a Muslim presenting you that food, you assume that that food is halal. by all standards, because it's a Muslim presenting you with food period, it stops there. Okay, if you want to be safer, then don't need it. And don't go to their house make an excuse not to go to their house

01:00:47--> 01:00:54

in the first place. But don't offend your host. That's bad other than that's contrary to the Sunnah of the Prophet slice on altogether. A lot. Yes, question.

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

This is a weird, awkward three

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

questions. Go ahead.

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

So I didn't have I didn't want to offend him, but I was offended. He was drinking.

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

Obviously, I'm not participating or anything. But in that situation, is it better to actually speak out against a Muslim that pulls out alcohol and starts drinking while you're having?

01:01:28--> 01:01:30

According to my level, no.

01:01:31--> 01:01:38

The prophets like some says, Men can you know be lazy Will Young and awkward fellow agents or LMS, either to neutral Barney.

01:01:39--> 01:02:18

So Hadith that's authentic and intermediary, that whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should not sit at a table spread, where alcohol is being served. Now, there is a gray area when you're talking about corporations and work environments. And I'm not saying hello, I'm saying it's a gray area. And there's filth and he had there, but not with the Muslim. And not in a situation where you really can avoid that situation altogether, you should not absolutely sit at a table where alcohol is being served. Alright, so there are gray areas there new Muslims and non Muslim relatives and work environments and things of that sort. Were on the table, can you sit? Is there a way to express

01:02:18--> 01:02:49

your disapproval without necessarily leaving the table altogether? Because tables are different now, right? So you're sitting, what if you're kind of off the table like this? And you're not honest, that's all a gray area. But know if it's a friend, it's a social gathering and things of that sort? You should not you should not sit there while a person is drinking alcohol. In fact, I'm gonna be named that it is Rahim Allah to Allah, a situation arose. And in his time, where there were three men together, two of them were drinking and one of them was not, and he punished all three of them.

01:02:51--> 01:03:00

Because he said, you sitting with them, so you're just as guilty as they are. So so no, you need that's something where we take a step back and Charlottetown Sister Yes.

01:03:03--> 01:03:03

He says.

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

The Kaabah if you join

01:03:19--> 01:03:22

me, and then he tried to ask about

01:03:24--> 01:03:24

Yes.

01:03:34--> 01:04:11

Okay, so investigating a minor difference of opinion is that the same as following the desires again, you should go to a similar source that protects you from going all over the place and just finding the easiest thing altogether. Now, when there's a situation of hardship and Shopko, you know, then finding a way out of a hardship and you want to take a more lenient opinion, that's an established opinion in the religion to get yourself out of it and harsh a hardship, that's okay. So you're in an actual hardship and you want to get yourself out of a hardship and a lenient opinion exists there. That's okay to get yourself out of that hardship for that situation, where it should

01:04:11--> 01:04:30

not become a habit and a person should should go to a similar source. So if you're not if you're either going to a similar a scholar, or group of scholars that are of a similar background, the similar lean, you know, leaning or whatever, it is a similar fifth and jurisprudence, you're going to those scholars, so that you're not allowing yourself to go in all sorts of different directions along

01:04:31--> 01:04:34

if you had your hand up many times, so I'm just gonna go ahead.

01:04:36--> 01:04:43

Pardon me for my lack of knowledge, I think is gonna come.

01:04:45--> 01:04:58

Not as ready lined here is slightly one off. And it is not as my colleagues what kinds of collaboration when you can go and do

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

this

01:05:01--> 01:05:34

Okay, I'm glad you brought that up because there's a beautiful, there's a beautiful fact that there's a beautiful useful thing that we agenda that we can take from that. The question of a dog going out and hunting for you, all right, or the cultures of hunting dogs. Don't we have a dilemma that the saliva of the dog is impure? Right, the saliva of the dog is impure. And the amount of claim Rahim Allah Tada he actually so in the Quran, this this category of dogs is mentioned in the Quran, which is a McCallum, a person, a specified hunting dog can hunt for you.

01:05:35--> 01:06:14

How is it that it's okay to eat an animal that was caught by your hunting dog, if the saliva is impure, and the nominal claim, Rahim, Allah, Allah says something very beautiful. He wrote a book called Kitab, with the animal family that the virtues of knowledge and or the book of knowledge and their virtues, and he said that in order for a dog to be to fall into this category, they basically have to have knowledge they have to be well trained. So you have to actually go through some tests with it. So you tell it to go it goes, you tell it to come back, it comes back, you have to go through some things to make sure that that dog is established as a hunting dog. And he said, then,

01:06:14--> 01:06:32

at that point, the dog qualifies as a hunting dog. He said so Subhanallah he said are in because of knowledge, even the dog status is raised to where his saliva is not impure when he hunts that animal. So how are n elevates knowledge elevate elevates,

01:06:33--> 01:06:56

Lost Planet Allah says that y'all for Allah Alladhina Eminem and Kamala Deena Oh trillion dollar jobs, and lost parents are raises the believers amongst you. And then from the people of knowledge, he has raised them dollar Jack degrees. So he said, it's not even limited to humans, that even that dog status is raised by his knowledge by his qualifying in that situation. So this is a situation where, where you have an exception,

01:06:57--> 01:07:17

and again, it's not something that's common in our times it is it is common for some people that live in certain contexts and situations, it's not common in our times, I don't recommend that you go do it. Or that you go figure out how to, you know, find a hunting dog and go to the desert and start sending out a hunting dog. But there's but it's an established hokum in our religion, and Allah knows best. Alright, I'll do

01:07:18--> 01:07:22

920 Something quick question here, if any sisters guys done,

01:07:23--> 01:07:25

who had their hand up longest?

01:07:31--> 01:07:37

Everything is sort of like the basis of it is how does the common person know when they investigate the order in action?

01:07:39--> 01:07:48

So the common person, how do they know when they when they when they need to investigate when something is a lot when you're so there are a few things. Number one, you're going when you're doing something serious?

01:07:49--> 01:08:04

You're getting into a financial transaction in particular, or you're doing something that's going to that's that's a serious decision. The first consideration is just like how do you know if it's legal or illegal? The first consideration should be is it legal in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala? Or not?

01:08:05--> 01:08:37

When it's when it's a serious thing? So there are things I mean, do I have to investigate every single thing that I eat every single thing that I wear every single thing that I, you know, the way that I'm walking, and so on, so forth? No, I don't. But when something disturbs me on the inside, or when I'm not sure about something, so let's say for example, I have a lot of the material Hapa when the standard was to karate the province, I said, my own mess forgiven for things they do out of ignorance, or out of forgetfulness or under compulsion. So it might have just been ignorance, you might have been doing something wrong for the last 20 years and it never occurred to you that this

01:08:37--> 01:08:40

could even possibly be haram Allah subhanaw taala won't punish you for that.

01:08:41--> 01:09:00

You weren't you were not accountable in that situation, because you really had no idea you did not come to think of it but a person the first consideration when they're embarking upon a serious decision in life, or they're going to do something is whether or not it's compliance with the last Panama to Allah's law or not. So you don't have to drive yourself insane

01:09:01--> 01:09:28

but it is good for you to just take that into consideration you know, whenever you're embarking upon something that sort of rubs you the wrong way and the prophets lie son. He said that I'm gonna use a bouquet I'm not a YouTuber, you should leave that which causes you some discomfort on the inside for that which causes you comfort sometimes you just know when your fifth loss sound something doesn't feel right about the situation let me investigate it. They also have those people that say don't ask because if you ask and you find out it's haram, you're in trouble.

01:09:29--> 01:09:35

Right? I've actually had that happen to me many times where I'm sitting with two or three people and like someone's asked like why did you ask him

01:09:36--> 01:09:39

would have never been held on if you didn't ask him right so he needs

01:09:40--> 01:09:50

a person should should should have that sincerity that where they want to investigate things on their own and shallots on find out things on their own. Low on. Alright, last question. Yeah.

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

Is it okay enough to say, I don't know if it allows someone to stay away from it.

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

One thing

01:10:03--> 01:10:04

that's fine is don't drive either.

01:10:06--> 01:10:13

So it's fine for you to say I don't know if it's valid so I'm gonna stay away from it from my own self but just don't, don't make other people feel filthy.

01:10:14--> 01:10:26

Right? Again, what are is between you and Allah subhanaw taala not anyone else. It's between you and Allah that you hold yourself to a certain standard individual standard of safety and caution, not anyone else.

01:10:27--> 01:10:34

Charlottetown just quick announcement charlatans. So this Friday we have a very special event here in this message and shot Wattana

01:10:36--> 01:10:43

it's a I believe the title of the event is something along the lines of walking with those wares. Wow, that was the flyer
