Bismillah Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was so heavy on the water, sit on one acre and Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh we are back for a another live session and Hamdulillah. If this is your first time joining us, it's good to have you. And if you're listening to this recording later, it's good to have you here as well listening. I do this every Sunday. The timing is usually around this time, sometimes it's a little bit of a shift.
But it is around this time that I've been trying to do a regular live session and we have different topics and like we have a new topic for today. If you're joining us live I would love to hear where you're joining us from. So it's nice to see where people are listening and watching from so in the chat in the YouTube chat. Make sure to put your city country whatever you want. I see we have someone joining us from Toronto, masha Allah, Wadi coma set off with Allah. It's good to have you here with us live and how did he know? So yeah, so make sure to drop in the comments. Let me know where you're joining us from and also, if you have any questions or any feedback, any thing you want
to add to add to the discussion, please leave it in the comments. I do try to keep my eye on the comments in these live session
side too deeply. Or it can be said I'm gonna have to lie about a cat to sad first of all, I want to say beautiful name had Villa from the UK from Birmingham, Masha, Allah, Sister Shosanna Choudry. From France, good to have you here as well, how did he know?
We usually have a lot of people from Europe. So that's that's nice Hampton. And we have North America here as well handling. Now. Today's session should be really fun, I believe Insha Allah, today's session really came from a post one of the short videos that I did, and I usually do these YouTube shorts that are under a minute. I posted on YouTube. And then I posted on my Instagram as well. And what's interesting is kind of like YouTube, I think gets a bad rap. Sometimes people say,
you know, you know, people in the comments, YouTube, you know, YouTube comments, I was crazy. And this and that, whatever. I found this time, Instagram. You know, there's just a lot of comments to the point where I you know, as you know, if you see one of my previous live sessions, I don't really, you know, get into the comments. But I do have people who do inform me, you know, comments are poppin I don't know, there's a lot going on in the comments. And there seem to be some controversy or some debate regarding my previous video. And, you know, I don't like to get into the comments and you know, have arguments and things like that. I'd rather do it face to face, I'd
rather do it in a live session. So what I'm going to do today is I'm going to go over this topic and then I'm actually copied some of the comments that were that so people posted on that video. So I'll address those comments directly inside Yeah, if you have any questions, you can post them here in the chat as well. And I can you know, I'll keep like I said, I'll keep my eye out on the discussion as we go. So today's topic, what you should not wear to the masjid. Now, I guess maybe a better way to put this would be what you should wear to the masjid. And really, if you go back to that short video I did. Basically the point of that video was to say that we should wear nice clothes to the
masjid, as Allahu Allah. Allah has instructed us that we look our best. We look nice when we go to the masjid, as Allah says and so on off. Yeah, Bunny Adam. Oh, Children of Adam, who do Zina Takoma in the Coulee Masjid. Take your adornment at every Masjid Wakulla shabu and eat and drink what are 234 And do not be excessive in the hula, you have mostly been indeed he does not like those who are excessive meaning ALLAH who's penalized to Allah so this verse teaches us so one of the things that we learned is that the masjid is a place where Allah subhanaw taala is worshipped. We are going there for worship. So we should wear appropriate and nice clothing. And also, I mentioned this in
that short video, that what how we dress is an indication of how we feel about where we are at or where we're going. So if someone's going to a wedding, they're going to wear nice clothes because to them, it's it's a it's an important event. They want to look there, they're not doing they want to look their nicest. If they're going to meet somebody who they really like
someone who they respect, then they're going to wear respectable close assist, you know the nature of us as human beings. So when we are standing in front of Allah Subhana Allah for worship, we also want to be in the best possible form that we can
We have this reiterated specifically you know, I spoke about in that video I spoke about Juma that during the day of Juma, we should make an extra effort, you know the prophets that I send them, he instructed us to make a listen on the day of Jamaat and take a bath on the day of Juma per centum instructed us to do use the Seawalk you know, like clean our teeth, make sure our breath smells nice to wear perfume to smell nice, to the best of our ability, and this mentioned the body. And we have other narrations as well that we should look nice.
Going to the masjid specifically on Friday, you know, because that is a special day for us. The day of Friday is indeed a blessed day, once a week. And for many Muslims, obviously, this depends on where you live. But you know, a lot of Muslims, the only time they go to the masjid, for whatever reason, right? Is on the day of Friday. So whether someone goes for the regular five prayers, or not many Muslims, at least they will make an effort to go on Friday, which is commendable. hamdulillah so the point of that video was to encourage us to really make an effort. And I think one of the issues is that, you know, coming out of quarantine, and you know, the the pandemic a lot of people
are, we just spent a lot of time at home. And even like, we'll attend classes online, and we'll listen to lectures online. And you know, at home, we're just sitting in whatever, especially we don't have our camera on, you know, we're used to just lounging at home. And now that we're starting to go back to the to the masjid, maybe some of that has carried over, right, we're like, you know, I'm just chilling, let's go chill in the masjid. So that really is is the point of what I was saying. But I think a lot of people got it. I think a lot of people got that point. But there was also some people who kind of maybe took it in in a different way.
You know, and so what I want to do right now is I'm going to actually read the comments here in front of me, I'm going to read some of the comments that stood out at least some of the some of the some of the comments were made on that video on Instagram. So if you're joining us from Instagram, you can go check out you know, the posts on on Instagram, or you maybe have seen these. So I'm going to get to a question in sha Allah. He said, Is it bad etiquette, low effort to wear T shirts, in the mission, I'm going to get to that this is gonna, this is gonna come up. So thank you so much for asking that question. So one of the things that was mentioned, I'm not going to mention the the
commenters name, even though, you know, technically, if someone made a comment publicly, they should take responsibility for their comment publicly as well. So,
you know, I would be within my rights to say the commenters name publicly, but but I'm not going to do that. Right. Because when you say something publicly, like cut off, that's a responsibility you take, you know, in a public fashion anyway, I'm not gonna say the names or the, or the online names of people who made these comments. But one person said,
a quote, so homeless people can't come question mark, or those who are less fortunate. So I guess there was some some issue with you know, like, Okay, if we're supposed to wear nice clothes, then what about the homeless? And what about those who don't have nice clothes? And the answer to that should be quite obvious. But I guess it's not obvious for some people. And that is that obviously Allah who's Petawawa, Allah does not expect from us to do something that we're unable to do. Right? Allah says, Allah must have the Taqwa of Allah to the best of your ability, have the piety of Allah to the best of your ability, meaning we can only do what we're capable of. So if we don't have,
quote, unquote, nice clothes, then we wear what we have. Or another way, another way to look at this is we would say, were the best from what you have, whatever you have, pick the best of it and wear that to the masjid or wear that to Juma. And this is something you know, even the companions or the lover and home, some of them were wealthy, many of them were not wealthy, many of them had did not have quote, unquote, nice clothes or expensive clothes or fancy clothes. But they they were the best of what they had. We have that incident, for example of Jabba denounce the Allahu, and this is mentioned, I believe in haughty and Muslim as well, in which Jabba the lava and he says that, what
he was on a particular he was traveling with the person send them they were out on a journey. And when one night he went to go visit the process in them, and he saw that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was praying. And so Jabba the level the ALLAH and he went and he joined the prayer with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them and the process send them after the prayer person I'm asked him about the garment that he's wearing. And gentlemen, I did not know the love
He said, You know, when pressed him said, What are you wearing? Like, what is this? He said, O Messenger of Allah, is it too small. Now what's happening here by the way, just to give you some commentary on what's happening so far, Jabra did not didn't have much to wear. And as a matter of fact, Jabra dilla was so poor, that he only had one garment. Now, a dress that was very common at the time of the process, it was two sheets of cloth, right? That's it. One sheet of cloth was wrapped around the bottom portion of the body, which is known as the ease out and then another sheet of cloth was wrapped on the top portion of the body, right? What is known as a VEDA, so it's wrapped
on top. So that's normally what many people were, you know, and if you want to, if you want to visualize that Think of what men wear during Hajj and Umrah the Haram Haram is two pieces of cloth, one wrapped around the bottom portion of the body one wrapped over the top portion of the body. But gentlemen did not he only had one. Right, he only had one piece of cloth, so he didn't have to. So the way the gentleman did that had grabbed, you know, percent and said like, you know, what is this wrapping that I see? And then dinner, he said, you know, is it is it too small. And then the president, he replied, He said, Look, if it is large enough, then you should wrap it around your
entire body, if it is too small, then at least put it around your waist. And what that means is if it is long enough or big enough that you can wrap it around the top of your body, and it will cover your whole body, then you should do that. But if it's not long enough or big enough to cover your whole body, at least covered the lower portion of your body, your private parts and your overall right. So at least cover that and scholars derived from this by the way there are rulings and one of the issues that comes from this hadith is is it required for men to cover their shoulders when praying like is the prayer acceptable? If the shoulders are naked? So if you can think of like a
tank top or a vest, a basketball jersey, right where you know shoulders are uncovered? Yeah. So the scholars discussed like, is that is it permissible to pray in that way. And you know, long story short Inshallah, out of the prayer is is is acceptable, if the shoulders are uncovered, but it is if a person has the ability to cover their shoulders and they should cover it so our scholars say that it is Makoto it is disliked to pray with our shoulders uncovered even though the prayer is acceptable inshallah John, but that is derived from this, this hadith, right? So, yeah, but I didn't, I didn't have enough to cover, right, all of it. So percent, I'm said at least tie it around
the bottom cover your older point being you do as much as you can, you know, we do as much as we can. And so that that should be obvious, right? Obviously, our, we don't discriminate in our masajid based off of a person's social status, or how much you know, or how wealthy they are, or how poor they are, or anything like that. Obviously, you know, no one should be standing at the mission and say, you know, your clothes aren't aren't nice enough to wear to the masjid and that that'll, and I'll get to this in another comment as well. So that's, that's the first issue.
The right path, what was said I'm gonna have to leave it accounted for Melbourne, Australia. Thank you for joining this live discussion. So that's one of the comments. Hopefully that's clear. If you have any questions regarding that issue, let me know in the comments in sha Allah.
Alright. Bismillah so another comment someone said, and like I said, I'm not gonna say their name. They said Xena could be different for different people. And I guess they're referring to as Allah says, Who Luzina Tacoma and the collimation take your Xena your adornment at every mission. And so this commenter they said Xena could be different for different people. And I absolutely agree. There are certain requirements of the *ty art there are certain requirements of Islam when it comes to our dress, among them for example, the output should be covered. We should not imitate the clothing of the opposite gender, we should not wear clothing that is specific to a certain religion, things
like that. But those guidelines one once they are met, what is considered nice clothing and not nice clothing, what is considered beautification, it can differ from one culture to another culture and that is absolutely correct. So you know, my video was called don't wear pajamas to the masjid or you shouldn't wear pajamas to the mission or something like that. What is considered pajamas from one culture to another culture can be different and that's absolutely true. So, the point is, whatever is considered pajamas in your culture, or I should say whatever is considered sleeping clothes in your culture, then it's we should wear that to the mission we should wear nice clothes, right
clothes, clothes that are considered nice, whatever that is in your culture, right. Wherever you live, you know it can look different from one culture to another culture. What is considered better
nicer clothing. So absolutely I agree with that. The point is whatever is considered low effort clothing that that that should not be worn or we should try our best not to wear that to the mission. Obviously, the point is to make an effort regarding the clothes that we that we wear to the machine. I see we have some some questions here. I see them, I noted them, I'm going to answer them in sha Allah. Once I get through these pre submitted comments, I should say not really questions, there were more of comments statements were being made. They weren't really questions. So So yeah, yeah, I mean, what is considered good intent, what is considered, beautification can differ from one
culture to another culture? Absolutely. And I usually, you know, when I'm giving advice to healthy, right, you know, we're talking about you should wear nice clothes, when attending the gym or whatever, then it's even important, even more important that the person who is delivering the gym I hope by the Habib wears nice clothes, it's even more important for them, because they're the Imam, obviously, they should make an effort. And when I'm talking to especially young people who are starting to give hook buzz, and you know, starting to speak in the masjid, I always say, Look, you got to dress nice, because when people,
people, we are visual people, right, we make an impression, the first impression we get is from a visual standpoint. So if you're addressing a community or dressing, people who are coming to pray, before you open your mouth, they're going to look at what you're wearing, and they're going to make some judgments about you fair or not, that's another issue. But we all make judgments Subhanallah, based off of what we see, right? So you want to have a good impression, we want to wear nice clothes, when we're delivering the gym, I hope about now, whether you wear a suit and tie, or you wear a job, or you were shallow, our homies or you were or whatever, I don't care, whatever is
considered nice to you and to to the society you live in to the culture of your living, where that in some cultures that may be wearing a crisp, white thobe that may be considered you know, in a nice clothes, and another culture, maybe a suit and tie or, or whatever, or a button up shirt, whatever it is, I don't really care about that. But the effort should be made in terms of wearing something which is considered Nice. So that is the point, obviously, once again to the previous comment, whatever is within our ability, though, so we're not saying you need you have to wear something that you're not able to wear, obviously, if a person can't afford something that is considered nice. And
obviously that's not something that is required of them. Now, the next comment is probably my favorite comment. Because I get this a lot. Anytime something like this gets posted.
I'm not going to say the brother's name, I believe it's a brother, Allah Harlem. They said the following. This is very interesting. It's very interesting comments, Pamela, they said,
or so they started the comment with or, or you could stop judging people. You don't know their situation personally. And that might be the only long pair of pants they own. They could be homeless for all we know, at least they're coming to the masjid to pray and making an effort. I get your point of view, but I just don't agree with it. Fair enough. How about oh, no, sorry, talk about turning off your cell phones instead. And quote, now, that's that's the whole statement. There's a lot to unpack here. We'll start with the issue of judging people. Now, before we move any further, I want to say that I've given a whole talk on the issue of judging people. The talk is called only God
can judge me it's on my YouTube channel, you can go check it out right now. And what I'll do is I'll put a link in this video when it gets uploaded later on after the live session inshallah so you can click the link I don't know if it's on the right or left but it's up here somewhere. I'll put a link you can go watch that video. I go over deep in detail the issue of judging people, but I will mention this
what people consider judging or not, we need to clarify. Okay, so let me give you an example. That would that can help clarify this issue. Let's take the issue of
smoking, right smoking cigarettes.
Now Islamically. Smoking cigarettes is haram. It is impermissible for various reasons, but among them is
I just saw the comment about the fedora. I'll get to that as well inshallah.
Anyway, smoking is considered how right the vast majority of scholars because it is detrimental to our health, it is severely harmful to our health. It is impermissible to smoke cigarettes. If I were to say, oh, believers, oh Muslims, it is haram to smoke cigarettes. And then a person says no, no, no, you need to stop judging people. Because you know what, maybe the person is a great Muslim, but they have this one weakness, so on and so forth. So mentioning a ruling, mentioning a welcome a ruling mentioning what is for example, beloved to Allah or disliked
Allah or hated by Allah is not judging because it is said you're simply conveying the message of Islam, you conveying what is good and what is not good in Islam. However, if I were to go to an individual who is smoking a cigarette, and I say to him, Hey, you, you're a bad person, you're a bad Muslim. And you know what, you know, it's, you should fear Allah and so on and so forth. And this smoking and I attack them personally, then that is a different matter, because spear enough like the person may be a great Muslim, but this is one of their weaknesses. Maybe they have a smoking addiction, maybe they're trying to quit, maybe, maybe maybe so many reasons. That is not for me to
judge their piety. Their level of Taqwa is not for me to judge that's between them and Allah who's penalized to Allah. So the point is, judgment takes place on an individual basis. Right? If I were to go up to an individual and say, You're a bad Muslim, for X y&z reasons, you're a bad person for this reason, and that reason? Absolutely. That'd be judgment, but to mention the ruling Allah who's penalty Allah and to say that in Islam, this is good or this is bad, then that's not judgment. As a matter of fact, that is what is known as a member of Bill Maher, who, when he added would come to enjoin the good to clarify the good to show people the good and to and to discourage the bad and
that's actually one of the defining characteristics of our of our nation of our OMA Allah, who's Palo Alto, Allah says, couldn't do Heydo, mutton acquisitiveness. You are the best nations that Allah brought about for mankind why? Allah Spano Tata mentioned with the first reason to Morrow and I've been mauto what an Hona and in Mancha. Why are we the best nation because you enjoin, you encourage the good, and you and you and you forbid, or you discourage evil, meaning we stand up for that which is right, and we stand against that which is wrong. And then Allah says, what to me when a biller and you believe in Allah, obviously, belief in Allah comes first. But our scholars
mentioned here that one of the reasons Allah mentioned, enjoying the good and forbidding the evil first is to show its importance. And even we know as the President have told us that one of the ways the nations before us went astray, is they stopped encouraging people to do good. And they stopped discouraging people from doing bad, right. Basically, it's like, you know, you practice your deen I practice my dean, I'm not going to tell you what's right. And what's wrong, you know, don't hurt us. We don't. We don't we don't stand up for that, which is right. We don't tell people that which is right. And that is problematic, right, when we stopped doing that. But as I said, there is a
difference between going up to somebody individually now, why do people feel like they're being judged? My,
my, I suspect that sometimes a person may see a general post online, right? So like I did, I posted a general thing, hey, you know what, we should start wearing pajamas to the mission. Now, a person may have done that themselves. And so they may feel personally attacked. So maybe a person is in the habit of wearing pajamas to the masjid or they've worn pajamas to the mission before. And then they come across my video. And they feel like I'm personally attacking them that I'm saying you're a bad Muslim, because you wear pajamas to the mission. The reality is, homie, I don't know you. I've never talked to you. I've never met you. I don't know your name. And I'm not talking about you. Because I
don't know you. I'm mentioning a general I'm giving a general piece of advice, right? And so it's not personal. It's not personal to you. It's not personal to anybody. And even Subhanallah the advice that we give any public speaker, any day, any color towards good any scholar
they give to everybody, including themselves. And so when I give advice or when I you know, say we should do this, and we shouldn't do that, I always try to keep in mind that the first person that I'm speaking to is myself. Right? It first and foremost is a reminder for myself, right? So if there's anybody who I'm judging, I'm judging myself first, because I'm, you know, I'm not judging anybody else, because I don't really know anybody, you know, I don't know the people who are watching this and, and, and reading this, if I were to send this video to one person, and say, Hey, man, I made a video for you. You better watch this video, because it's for you, then absolutely the
person can say, Hey, man, stop judging me. Right? Like, why are you after me? You know, my I have my reasons, whatever it may be. But in a general sense, absolutely. That is not considered judgment. Right. I hope that's clear. But like I said, if you want more information on the issue of judgment or judging people, then I gave a whole talk on this issue. You can go check it out. It's called only God can judge me.
And then I'll take one more question. And I think that was part of oh, by the way, this person said, instead of talking about what you should wear to the masjid, you should talk about turning your cellphone's off instead, I would say Isn't that according to your definition of judgment
In that judgment as well, right, if I say, You know what, you should turn your cell phones off in the mission, a person could say, Hey, you don't know their situation. Maybe they're a
maybe they're a doctor, maybe they're a surgeon, and they maybe they're receiving a phone call to come perform emergency surgery. Maybe it's a it's an emergency phone call, that's why had they had their phone on a low item, right? So if we're gonna, if we're gonna say, That's judgment than telling people to turn off their cell phone to be judgment as well. But once again, in my opinion, neither of those would be judgment telling, saying, you know, we should turn our phones off or saying we should wear nice clothes, none of that a judgment because it's not directed towards an individual. Right? And it's we're not making a judgment about an individual's faith. A person can
have their cell phone on in the masjid and be the best believer be an amazing Muslim. A person can commit a sin any sin right and still be a good Muslim. We don't know what the situation is. We don't know any we don't we don't make a judgment on an individual based off of a sin right? In the end of the day, our sins are something that Allah will judge us for our responsibility is to enjoin the good right help each other do that which is good and and and discourage people from doing that which is bad. And that is known as we can cut now see how advice if it given on an individual level or it can be in a general sense, or I'm going to be out of window Hey, I didn't look up so hope that's
clear. Another another common teacher on Instagram said there are so many struggles that people have that work as barriers for them to go to the masjid. And here you are,
unintentionally creating another one for them. On top of that, you even quoted an idea to support your point. I don't know much of Sierra but I doubt Rasul allah sallallahu Sallam would tell the masses to not come to the masjid in certain types of clothing.
A lot of Stan, this is a very interesting comment as well. Number one, I wasn't telling anybody to not come to the masjid and if you got from my thing that hey, you know, what, don't come to the masjid. That's not what I was saying at all. I was talking about what is encouraged what we should encourage each other to do, what is preferred when coming to the masjid? And there are certain cases by the way, you know, this person mentioned.
I mean, there are there would be cases where the Poseidon would stop people from coming to the mission for example, you know, there are certain requirements when it comes to our our clothing. So if somebody were to come to the masjid, for example, when they're our uncovered naked, then obviously we would say no, don't enter the mystery like this cover. And as a matter of fact, we know that Demetri Kuhn at the time the person send them before the the message of Islam came, the maturity Kuhn would make the walk around the cabin naked, the women would have their chest uncovered Milla protectors, right. And some scholars say this is one of the reasons of revelation of the verse
that I quoted. Kudo, Xena, the commander collimation take your adornment and every mission because some of the machete cool, they would make off naked, right? So that obviously would say no, you can't come to mission could be completely naked. As for a what is considered a barrier or not, if I was standing at the door of the mission and stopping people from coming in, because they're wearing pajamas, your your point, whoever this is, your point would be absolutely valid. But that is not what I'm doing. And actually, I don't encourage anybody to do that. And it's very interesting that when people hear these reminders, they think of other people rather than themselves. This is not
these reminders are not meant for you to go stand and be the Haram police and go stand and tell other people what to do and what not to do. These reminders are supposed to be for ourselves, that can we make any improvements for ourselves? So when we hear something we look at ourselves rather than looking at, at other people.
So absolutely we want to be and I agree we should not create barriers for people coming to the mission. But at the same time, we should encourage people with that which is beloved to Allah that which is like to Allah who's Panama to Allah.
Yeah, so that's it. So that's those are some of the comments. I know there was a lot of comments but those are some of the comments that I wanted to address and clarify some of these issues. As I said, today's live session is going to be a fun 100 Allah. Let me let me now address some of the the questions and comments we have in the live session here. I'm just gonna scroll up a little bit. No, people are asking a few questions Bismillah dah, dah dah, dah dah. Please go through the differences for men and women. Okay, that is it. That is a long discussion about Allah the difference in in clothing between men and women.
Perhaps in another live session or perhaps in another will actually teach a whole class on the outside
for women in the hour for men, but there is a difference, the hour of women is different than the hour of men. That's a little bit of a longer topic. I'm not sure if I have really the time to cover it here, but there are differences in terms of the hour of men and the hour of women. So another person's side said, Is it bad etiquette? To wear T shirts in the mission? Look, it really depends, right? In a certain culture, wearing a t shirt may be considered normal and may be considered, you know, regular clothing. And once again, the other thing is kind of like this question reminded me here. We're not talking about especially when we talk about pajamas. We talk about T shirts, we talk
about things like that. We're not talking about halal and haram here, we're not saying It's haram to do this stuff. We're saying what is recommended, what is better, so we have to keep that in mind as well. Once the the basic conditions of dress are met, the hour is covered and so on and so forth. Then at that point, we're no longer in the halal and haram category, we are in the category of is this something recommended? Or is this something which is discouraged? Or is this something which is allowed. So So yeah, so that is something to keep in mind.
To wearing a t shirt. Once again, I have worn T shirts to the masjid all the time. One of the things I will remind myself and remind all of you just when it comes to T shirts, be careful that sometimes a t shirt can be short. And when you go into a court or sujood sometimes the hour can get uncovered. So just make sure that T shirt doesn't uncover our, our, our private parts, especially from the back. So just keep that in mind, I would encourage that at least on Juma that there should be maybe a little bit of a higher effort than a t shirt Allah item right there may be like a really nice fancy t shirt. That's not for me to decide. In the end of the day, these are decisions that we have
to make for ourselves, but good question.
In general, can you wear clothing with
a sorry, before that, when you wear trousers, jeans and go into sujood it can be tight around the rare your area and can be
cons. Okay, so this is an issue of tight clothing. Yes. So our our should not our clothing should not be so tight that our the shape of our our, our private area private apart is exposed. So that is something we do need to be careful of. Now we also need to keep in mind that depending on the shape of one's body, no matter how loose clothing you wear, some shape will be seen, right? So somebody for example, who is maybe a little bit more heavyset. They can wear loose clothing and still you can see the shape of their body. Right. So there's certain there's certain amount that we there's nothing that we can do about right. But yes, absolutely, it shouldn't be so tight, that the shape of
the hour is exposed. In general, especially for a salon, maybe wear a longer shirt or something like that, that would cover the private parts of the private area so that that area is not too tight regarding our our trousers or our
jeans or whatever it may be a lot
in general, can you wear so NADs, I guess that's a maybe a nickname or just the online name says in general, can you work clothes with images? What about children's clothing that has cartoon images. So,
in general, certain types of images are prohibited for us to wear and hang on our walls as as well they should that should not be done. Now there's difference amongst the scholars over what is considered an image
what exactly that would be considered that type of image that cannot be worn. First of all, when it comes to images of living things, we should be careful. Second of all, the more realistic the image the more careful we need to be. So regarding certain things like animation or cartoons are simplistic images, it becomes less of a serious matter with though so a very clear example of that is like emojis right? So an emoji is that considered an image or not I personally do not consider an emoji to be an image because it's a very simplistic representation of like a human face, right? So that is something to keep in mind that living things and even our scholars mentioned certain things
that if it is an image of a living being then certain things would would indicate that it doesn't
it doesn't hold life. So for example, if the eyes are taken out or if the eyes are missing, or for example if the head is separated from the body, which I know sounds really morbid, sounds weird to say. But you know something like that then it would not contain life, then that is something that would be
okay, that would not we will not come under the ruling of images but there's more detail to this. Allahu Ana, Gollum
skinny jeans, slim fit jeans. These are all interesting questions. You know, I teach a whole class
on this on this issue you know of covering the hotel and I really hope that you can attend this class one day inshallah who doubt it because I go into detail regarding a lot of these issues, but I will just say this here in this live session that we should make an effort from our end to wear looser clothing, especially in our what is known as the our lava these the severe part of the AWA, which is the private parts for men, right. And obviously, the private parts for women as well, that especially in those areas, we should make an effort to wear a little bit looser clothing, especially when it comes to our prayer. And look, that being said, there's certain depending on your body type
and so on and so forth. You know, foot duck llama subitem have the Taqwa of Allah to the best of your ability. Just try as much as you can. To be modest in in your clothing. Allah Adam
What about fajr prayer at home do we need to change from our sleep wear? No. So
just to clarify, even in the mission if you were to wear your sleep, wear your prayer is acceptable in sha Allah as long as other conditions are met of clothing. Your prayer is fine is to we're talking about today we're talking about what is recommended what is better. So even if you were to show up in your pajamas at the masjid, it's not like your prayers invalid or or you're doing anything haram. That's not what we're talking about. Here. We're talking about what is encouraged, right. So
so, so when it comes to that what we're talking about when it when I said sleep, wear or pajamas, we're talking about the mission, right? Allah says hello Xena Tacoma in the Coulee. Masjid take your adornment at every mission. So some of our scholars mentioned that it is more lacs when it comes to when we're praying at home we still shouldn't wear like bad clothes or anything like that. Or you know dirty clothes and things like that. But it this issue is more lacks when it comes to obviously in our homes versus going to the masjid Allah Allah Allah.
What is your view of wearing a fedora inside or inside or outside the masjid and I see that the the laughing face after that. My personal opinion on fedora. Now this has nothing to do with Islam. This is my personal personal personal preference. I'm not a fan of fedoras. I'll be honest with you. I'm not I'm not really feeling the fedora. I don't think everybody can pull up the fedora. You might be somebody who can, who can pull off a fedora. If you're someone like that more power to you my opinion most people probably can't pull up a fedora Allah Allah
Okay, I see we have a few other questions. I'd like to hear some comments as well. Let me hear some comments what you thought about today's topic? Insha Allah. Another question says if we eat a meal at a restaurant, which contains garlic and onions, and the time for Salah at the masjid comes, and we can't brush our teeth, what should we do? So we should try our best to at least rinse our mouth, maybe chew some gum, some mint gum or something like that, to get that smell out of our out of our mouths. And usually, you know what the what the Hadith by the way, the process LM is talking about is raw onions and raw garlic which have a much more pungent, or I should say stronger smell. So if
it's cooked garlic and cooked onions, usually this The smell is tamer. Right? So that's something to keep in mind as well. But we should at least make an effort to as I said, rinse your mouth or or maybe chew some gum or do something to try and get rid of that smell.
To do this, okay, someone said slightly unrelated hope that's okay. I've heard some students of knowledge, say earrings aren't haram for men, not resembling women. But do you know if any scholar who has that view, I have a better idea for you? How about we make that a live session? Is it permissible for men to wear earrings. And I say that because this is leads to a much broader issue a bigger issue in our deen and that is imitation of the opposite gender. So one of the conditions of Islamic clothing Islamically correct dress is that we are not allowed to imitate the opposite gender in our clothing. Now, that being said, we need to understand what that means there's much more
detail to that.
It's not as simple as most people think. And so this issue of wearing earrings.
You know, a lot of times the scholars who forbid forbid men from wearing earrings, one of the reasons that they give is its It imitates women, therefore men cannot work. That is something that needs to be analyzed. Perhaps we will do a live session on that. I think that'd be pretty fun. Maybe next week, maybe the week after we'll see. That's a very good idea for the next live session. Zac Lohan for giving that or putting that question or comment. So we'll talk about it we'll talk about insha Allah I think that's it. That's a good thing. For women whose hair is slightly showing during prayers
That nullified their prayer
ah, that is a.
Okay. So it depends it really depends. It depends on if a person knowingly
uncovers their IRA and willingly uncovers their, their our Ah, so a woman who knows that their hair is part of their IRA, and they know that their hour is uncovered, and then they pray in that way, it is possible that their prayer could be invalid. Okay, now keep in mind, I want to be very clear about what I'm seeing here. So what is now exempt from that? What are we a person who for a woman who doesn't know that some of her hair is showing that would not nullify her pair? Also a woman who is unaware like she doesn't know that that is part of our our, and then it should be covered during the prayer, right? Because she's ignorant of that. Inshallah Tada, that is not would not nullify her
prayer. In that case. Also, I want to mention here, we don't want to just like pajamas, or anything else that was discussed. We don't want to be in the masjid. Being the Haram policeman, he was standing in the masjid telling everybody what to wear and what not to wear. Right? That wasn't the intention of my original video. I hope that's clear with today's session as well. We don't want to be that person. We don't want to because if we start analyzing everyone, the way they dress, the way they they pray, we are human beings, we're always going to find something wrong. Just keep that in mind, right? Because we're human beings, none of us are perfect. So if I stood in the masjid, let's
say I stood in the corner of the masjid. And I said, let me look at this guy's prayer, for sure, I'm gonna find something, oh, you know what, maybe your record wasn't straight enough. Maybe I need when you're in touch that your nose wasn't fully touching, you're always going to find something because no one's prayer is perfect. That's why we don't go to the mission and start analyzing every single person and say, even dress, we could say, You know what, this is really not proper, or that's not tight, it's too tight or too loose and so on. Especially when it comes to the tightness and looseness of clothing. We asked 10 different people about whether this clothing is too tight, you
might get 10 different answers. Because what is considered tight and what is considered loose can even depend on what we are used to for some people something may be too tight, other people for another person may not be too tight. So I want to just clarify that, you know, with these questions, I have to say this, that we don't want to be that person, you know, that stands and just criticizes everyone, but if we're talking about for ourselves, right? And if we're talking about educating one another, then yes, the hair of a woman, right? The hair line. It's that part is it should be I need the hair should be covered. That's considered part of the Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah. Okay, so I
think I'm gonna call it a day here.
