So Hannah law Time flies by so fast, and I remember our last live session together just before the day of read. And already so Pamela, the entire month of Shawwal has left us and we have entered the month of will Canada, Pamela, the month before the final month of the Islamic calendar. And the month before the best days of the year, the days off, we had just the first 10 days of the hedger to be precise. I really missed you all. And kundala we have been interacting through different written

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

posts and different images. But as for our live sessions together, then Subhanallah it's already been over a month and hamdulillah this initiative has been put into place for you all that perhaps once a week at least, we can meet and we can exchange ideas and I can try and shed some light on some of

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

Your questions to the best of my knowledge as we

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

meanings, the best of my knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah, because that's the reality of why you would even ask me in the first place, of course, the question is from you or because you want to learn from that, which Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed in his book, and that was sort of sort of last Allahu alayhi wa sallam left in his Sunnah and as Eman Malik mentions, he mentions the narration is more. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said before he passed away, turn up to a coma into my septum be lentil Ville Luba, the Aveda Kitab, Allah was something that that I've left with you two things. If you hold steadfast on to them both you will never ever go astray. These two

00:05:44--> 00:06:26

things are the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us with knowledge that benefits us me Allah subhanho wa Taala bless me with steadfastness in that which I share with you and we almost panic to Allah make our sittings solely for his sake alone are sitting together virtually solely for his sake alone. And we all have some kind of way to Allah make us a people that are forgiven. With every sitting that we have together. I mean, not to brag, let me know before I come to the questions I just want to highlight the process for sending your questions in on social media, especially Facebook, I released

00:06:26--> 00:07:11

a link Okay, that link takes you to my website. However, when you get to my website, you are not supposed to use the comments section of the post rather, when you get to my website you will see a blue icon which says ask a question, please ask your question there it will take you to a form which you need to fill it will request from you some details all those details will be confidential and then inshallah you can ask your question and then inshallah we will go ahead and answer them answer those questions to the best of our abilities in our sittings together. Now you might see me moving my head around. That's because I have a broadcast on on Instagram and on Twitter and on Facebook and

00:07:11--> 00:07:55

on YouTube. And I will be checking the different feeds just to make sure that everything is working when the light hits Allah, but to add more completion to our time together, I prefer that from the outset, we take a small lesson together and then we use the remaining time getting to Allah to answer some of the questions that you have shared. And for today's lesson for episode one the lesson I'd like to share with you especially since our hearts are attached to Ramadan, and we had our moments with the Orion series in Ramadan. And so Pamela month has already become completed since Ramadan I want to share with you another moment to continue in that particular spirit and with that

00:07:55--> 00:08:35

particular process of sharing with you in Sharla. A moment from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that we can have a moment with Allah subhanho wa Taala and for today's episode, this moment comes from Surah Surah Kahf Allah subhanho wa Taala in our diversity in particular that we want to discuss, but lots of Pena who were to Allah, He says enough evangelical arikara demon can Allah Oh Allah, summer wahoo Shahid, Allah subhanho wa Taala he really says to us this particular area, in and sort of off and the meaning of this ayah is a loss of kind of who Allah

00:08:36--> 00:09:30

is saying meaning of the eye is as follows indeed, in the Quran, is a reminder for whoever has a heart and who listens whilst he or she has present a present mind, a present mind. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the valley Kala vichara lumen Candela. pal, Assam. Wahoo Shaheed again Allah says indeed, in in that meaning the Quran is a reminder for whoever has a heart and whoever gives the Quran and it's message a present mind and attentive ear and Subhanallah when we look when we ponder over this, our brothers and sisters in Islam we see so Pamela how this ayah is an IR of transformation. And it releases to us the process, the process of achieving a transformation.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

Alright, everyone's thinks Alam on social media while it masala rahmatullah wa barakatu Please forgive me, if I miss you, if I don't see you. It's because I don't have access to all the pages all at once. I will try my best when I hit Allah. I will try my best because Neela hit me. In fact, let me open up the Facebook page in full so that when I hit Allah, I can see some of your correspondences coming in. All right, so I'm lost.

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

handle to Allah says, Allah Subhana Allah says in sort of faff, especially for those just joining in, in FIFA Liga lirica. Women plan Allah who fall below alpha somehow who has shed shed over Shaheed indeed in the Quran is a reminder for those who have a heart and those who listened attentively, as I said, this ayah is an area of transformation because it teaches us the means through which transformation takes place and I want to take you through this particular understanding in stages, because when we look at this area, we see so Pamela, that in this particular area, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to us or highlights for us two concepts. Number

00:10:41--> 00:11:24

one, is the concept of that which brings about transformation, it brings about transformation and this is no doubt the plan, right? And the message of the Quran, it brings about transformation. And we get this from the part in the Iowa a lot is in the Fidel ecologica. Right, Allah says in deed in this Quran is a reminder, a means of transformation. And then Allah tells us in terms of the second concept, he tells us to Pena who were to Allah, that this second concept that is required for transformation to take place, is that which receives the instruction. So you have that which gives the instruction. That's the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala, giving us the instruction through

00:11:24--> 00:11:32

revelation, and then we need to have that which receives the instruction. And we get this understanding from where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, The Man can enter who can

00:11:33--> 00:12:16

assess right the one who has a heart or lens to the message and attentive ear. So this is what we see, when we ponder over the eye. We gather from the idea that Allah subhanahu Allah here is highlighting for us to important pillars that are required for the transformation process to take place to have the means of transformation, which is the plan, which is guidance, and we can add to this the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we can add to this the consensus of the alumna of the Ummah, we can add to this correct jurisprudence based analogy which is quote unquote chaos which is based on the Quran and the Sunnah, anything which constitutes evidence, right? And

00:12:16--> 00:12:32

certain evidence meaning it's based on the Quran and the Sunnah its guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala or conforms to that, which revelation has come with, then this is the means of transformation, we need that present, but we also need that which receives it, which is the human being,

00:12:34--> 00:13:07

right, the human being receives this transformation, sorry, receives the means of transformation, and then hopefully, they can be transformed. Now I see hopefully, they can be transformed. Well, if we ported over the ayah further, we see Allah subhanho wa Taala, highlighting for us a condition. Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights for us a condition and we'll come to that in sha Allah. But let's go through first and foremost, Allah subhanho wa Taala highlighting for us that I heart a present heart is required for

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

confirmation for transformation Allah subhanho wa Taala says in feeder licola decra indeed in this four iron is a means of transformation is a message is a reminder for the one who has a heart what heart which heart is being referred to here, any heart know a heartbeat, she's alive, like Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:13:30--> 00:13:57

in another part of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, woman Sherif woman I am Allah in who are in the crew movie, leaving the Roman can hey, yeah, boy oluwole Catherine. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. Satya seen, he says that we do not give prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the knowledge of poetry? No Is it befitting for him?

00:13:58--> 00:14:07

It is not meaning the score and this revelation is not but a message and a clear plan to warn whoever is alive. Even the Roman

00:14:09--> 00:14:51

Roman can hasten to warn who those who are alive with alcohol, caffeine. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the message against the disbelievers will be justified as well. Right so through a loss of kind of who is sending the messenger and revealing the book, evidence is established on Earth, right evidence is established on us, those who listen there will be safe and those who don't listen, they will be in deep trouble. And there will be evidence against them to justify the trouble that they will be in. So most of Hannah who has seen mentions that this photo and is a means for those who are alive. And in terms of the heart that Allah subhanho wa Taala is referring to a heart which is a

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

life because everyone has a heart. Right at least we would like to think so right? Everyone has a heart anyone who is alive has a heart but we have so many who have

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

disbelieved in Allah Subhana, who has so many who have rejected Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the final messenger, so many who

00:15:09--> 00:15:17

not only refuse to listen to the Quran, but they present themselves as enemies to the Quran, right? They go out of their way to try and

00:15:19--> 00:15:41

coerce people to lose trust in the Quran and the preservation of the Quran and so on and so forth. No doubt they have failed, but they've made this their mission. We have also Pena who Allah protect us from misguidance. I mean, you're a black woman. So this is a message and a means of transformation for those who have a heart, which is alive and the heart which is alive here refers to a heart that is

00:15:43--> 00:16:24

objective, not subjective, a heart which is objective, a heart which is willing to listen. And then he as well and attentive ear and ear that is that that is ready to be objective and is willing to listen and willing to ponder over that which has entered the heart and that which the ears have heard, and accordingly transform. So here we see a lot of henna, who Allah setting a condition and as I said, we'll come to that in sha Allah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says all summer, Allah mentions indeed in the Quran is a means of transformation for those who have a heart and those who lend an attentive ear. And here brothers and sisters in Islam, we learned this condition that I've

00:16:24--> 00:17:06

been highlighting that number one, we have the means of transformation, the Quran and the Sunnah, and that which is evidence in Islam. And then we have the person that receives this, we need these two elements for transformation. But there's a condition the condition is, as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in this ayah or a semer. Right? And then Allah says at the end of the URL, and this is it. This is the key part that teaches us the condition for transformation to take place, or who have Shaheed wahoo or Shahid Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that you have a present mind when this knowledge reaches your heart. And when this knowledge reaches your ears, it's attentive and you

00:17:06--> 00:17:56

listen and you absorb with a present self with a present heart with the present mind, this is a condition. So you can have the current and you can have the present, but if the person is not paying attention, then transformation will not take place because paying attention beings objective giving the Quran and the Sunnah a chance lending it and attentive ear is a condition for the transformation process to take place for you to change. Now, what do I mean by condition? Well, brothers and sisters in Islam a condition is something that needs to be present before something can be completed, right like for example, the condition, the condition to go to uni, for for acceptance

00:17:56--> 00:18:05

into university the condition for acceptance into university is is what it is that you complete secondary school that is a condition right?

00:18:06--> 00:18:50

The condition for Salah is what is many conditions from the from the main conditions of Salah What do we have? Hua Zhu? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said we who is the key to salah and there's no Salah without Udo right Allah says commands in the Quran that if we want to break we need to observe the widow and Allah highlights for us portions of the widow process in the Quran. So we'll do is a condition for Salah without although Salah will never ever be completed. In the same way Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us in this ayah that you can have the Quran the means of change, you can have the person with the heart with the ear that is needed for change to take place.

00:18:51--> 00:19:34

But if they if they don't pay attention, change won't take place. The condition for change to happen is that they pay attention. Right? You take the process seriously. And it's not just about listening at the time. But it's about pondering over that which you had. Right? ponder over it. Go on a journey with this new lesson from the Quran and the Sunnah. It's not about temporary Eman boosts. And unfortunately, this is what we have become accustomed to brothers and sisters in Islam. And that's why we find a lot of movement, but little progress. And you've probably heard me say this many times there's a difference between

00:19:36--> 00:20:00

movement and progress. There's a difference because a rocking horse, a rocking horse moves right a rocking horse moves, but it doesn't progress. It's moving, but it's on the same spot. So brothers and sisters in this lamp, it's moving, but it's on the same spot. That's what a rocking horse does. It doesn't progress

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

Press, right there's no transformation in terms of your personal movement, you are stuck on the same spot. And this is what happens a lot when we seek knowledge incorrectly. We listen to a lot of lectures, right? And so Pamela,

00:20:17--> 00:20:26

we become attached, we become attached to the shacks, to the dryer to those who are teaching because they're giving us screentime, they always in front of us on our screens, right?

00:20:28--> 00:20:48

panel, everyone has a screen today before the famous people were people who could get onto TV, but now TV has has is a small as a small camera on our mobile phone, right, connected to the internet as as I am doing with you now. So we become attached to our chefs and so on and so forth. But we've failed to grow beyond the reminders that they're giving us.

00:20:50--> 00:20:57

It's it's, it's as if we just need a dose to feel that spiritual boost, but we can't grow beyond that lesson.

00:20:58--> 00:21:36

And that's problematic brothers and sisters in Islam, that is problematic. And this is why I'm highlighting this area in this particular way. Because the panelists when I look how much we've discussed, because the Quran in deed is a means of transformation. But there's a process that needs to be applied, so that we're not just moving. We're not just getting tired listening to a lot of lectures. But one year later, we ask ourselves, where are we? And we're still on the same spot, as we were a year before when we started listening to the lectures. Does that make sense? So this is what this particular is talking about. It's talking about giving the Quran and the Sunnah and the

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

lessons from the Quran, and the Sunnah, and a tentative heart and an attentive ear. And to go on a journey with the lesson, it's not about listening to so much and learning so much, it's better for you to learn a little bit, which changes you than to learn a lot, which doesn't change

00:21:56--> 00:22:36

to Pamela, and brothers and sisters in Islam. You know, you and I and through experience, we've seen this, to change for the worse, doesn't need much effort. But to change for the better. It needs a lot of effort, it needs a lot of learning. And then there's a process with that learning before we can actually live the change and become the change and be the change, right. But to change for the worse, it doesn't need machine learning. So Pamela, right, the shape one is there, the desires are there and everything is beautified for us. No one needs to teach us to do wrong things people do wrong things without being taught. But Subhanallah people are taught so much good, but they're not

00:22:36--> 00:23:15

changing. And this is what we want to figure out why. And if we ponder over it, we see that there is an issue in terms of the process of Tilak p teleki. Referring to the process of absorption of the knowledge that we learned from a lecture from a Yamaha tuba from a an Islamic seminary from a book that we read, and so on and so forth, we have to have that present mind. And we have to understand how our mind works and understand how best we learn. This is important as well. Brothers and sisters in Islam, this is fundamentally important, because everybody has different everyone has everybody has a different capacity in terms of how long they can concentrate for, right?

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

I you know, how long can they concentrate for?

00:23:22--> 00:23:59

Sorry, I just saw the image was slightly smoky, I'm just moving my position a bit. So the camera can focus, how long they can concentrate for how long they can study for how much information they can take in at a time how many pages they can read at a time, right? And so on and so forth. We've got to understand ourselves in terms of our ability to learn, right, what defines us as learners, what is our best process in terms of, of learning, and accordingly, apply ourselves so that when we do learn, that heart is attentive, that he is attentive, and then we have enough time to go on the journey with that which we lead so this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us in this

00:23:59--> 00:24:11

particular ayah Allah he'll hand this ayah from from from Surah puff and somebody might say that how come Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned

00:24:12--> 00:24:16

the heart and he mentioned the ear because even

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

just you know mentioning the heart suffices because even meaning Why did Allah mention the heart and mentioned the ear? Okay, because even that which is heard by the ear needs to penetrate to the heart before we can benefit from it and this is a this is a good question. And Amanda, Allah He beautifully answers this he explains to us why did Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned first that the Quran is a means of transformation. For a person who has a heart or a person who gives the Orion and attentive ear. He mentions why Allah subhanho wa Taala separated between the heart and an attentive ear even though the attentive ear needs the heart before you can change he says

00:25:00--> 00:25:19

A lot that a human being is of many situations right. But in terms of this discussion, we can highlight two situations or two circumstances. Number one, they are living upon the fitrah. They are living upon the natural disposition that Allah subhanho wa Taala created them upon.

00:25:20--> 00:26:03

So we born with a pure fitrah as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us and as Allah subhanho wa Taala taught us in the Quran, as well. We are born upon a pure fitrah a fitrah that wants to be with the aura and by default, it wants to listen to the Quran by default, it doesn't need convincing to listen to the Quran by default. So, for us circumstances situation, it's enough just to have the heart because the heart guide you to the Quran. And your journey with the Quran continues. But some people they fitara the natural disposition this thing which Allah has created us with this natural disposition that Allah is painted us upon what happens it becomes corrupt

00:26:04--> 00:26:13

by our environments, our environments can corrupt the fitrah Okay, and that is why and for those who have

00:26:15--> 00:26:55

sort of read some of the philosophical sciences and the scientific sciences you there's this discussion and debate between the philosophers and the atheists are we products of, of nature or are we products of nature are we purpose of our environment, which is what the philosopher's speak about are we products of nature, which is DNA and so on and so forth, which is the the Forte and scope of the scientists. as Muslims, we believe that we are products of our fitrah we are born upon a filter Allah created us upon to heat upon believing what Allah subhanho wa Taala and upon attachment to the Quran, Allah created us and a lot of you the Quran, so they can be no problem, they can be no

00:26:55--> 00:27:40

contradiction, who gave us our heart a lot, or gave us our soul a lot, or gave us the Quran a lot. So they can, it's natural for us to be attached to the Quran into except the Quran, right? It's not natural. What happens when the fitrah becomes corrupt in the fitrah becomes corrupt, it will start finding it unnatural to automatically connect with the Quran. So what happens then, what happens then brothers and sisters in Islam is that we need to give an attentive ear to the message. Right We need to give an attentive ear to the message. So for those who are upon the fitrah they naturally attach to the Quran. They don't need to be convinced to they don't need to give that attentively or

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

they already with it. As Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us

00:27:44--> 00:28:29

he says we already know too little melody on the lake and Radhika Huck, la de la sera Aziz in Hemi de la some kind of way to Allah says, and those who have been given knowledge, they understand that which has been revealed by Allah subhanho wa Taala by your Lord, right meaning the Quran was revealed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that this revelation has come down in truth, then Allah says, and it guides to the path of the one who is Exalted in Might in the one who's the placement where the last panel, so the curar automatic guides, and if the filter is pure, then it's light upon light, you're normal. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah,

00:28:29--> 00:29:08

he says light upon light, the light of the fitrah is placed upon the light of Revelation. Because the fitrah is naturally attached to the revelation, just like the teeth of your upper jaw, and the teeth of your lower jaw. Right when you close your mouth, if your if your mouth is, is normal, you close your mouth. You see the upper teeth, they congruent with the bottom teeth, they fit in each other, so panela perfectly. If they don't, then you need braces, right? vases fixes the problem. In the same way, Revelation and the fitara is they connect together?

00:29:10--> 00:29:20

They connect together beautifully and effortlessly. If it doesn't work, then what do we need? We need braces, right? We need to give an attentive ear

00:29:21--> 00:29:31

and have an objective demeanor and listen to what the Quran is telling us and allow the Quran to recalibrate the fit off.

00:29:32--> 00:29:38

Right? Because the environment has caused the fitter to become desensitized.

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

So to two things which are loss of Hannah horadada dislikes. We look around, we see people not dressing properly. We look around we see people listening to music. We look around we see people having relationships, boyfriends, girlfriends, so on and so forth. We look around we see people chasing after the dunya the norm around us is

00:30:00--> 00:30:28

Not one that we find when we look into the looms of the Quran and the Sunnah. As we grow up watching these gnomes, the desensitizes the fitrah. So the Fed becomes like the corrupt, it's programming. If I can use computer terminology, its programming becomes corrupt. It needs an antivirus, right? Or it needs a recalibration process, right. Sometimes you get software that leak recalibrates other software, right. So

00:30:29--> 00:31:08

for those who use their mobile phones, it's called a soft reset when you reset the phone to factory settings, right. And sometimes you need a hard reset Allah subhanaw taala projectors. So if we give the Quran and the Sunnah and attend to via what will happen, will become recalibrated. The filter becomes recalibrated. So this is the first instance where the heart is pure. And it connects with the Quran immediately. But Allah gives us the second circumstance which is the attentive ear, and that is when the heart doesn't connect automatically. Now, the attentive ear is required and notice a attentive ear because Allah says well who is Shaheed is paying attention, and she's paying

00:31:08--> 00:31:48

attention. So some have a lot, just one eye our brothers and sisters in Islam, when we dissect it, we see so much Pamela, we see Allah subhanho wa Taala telling us, I'm going to summarize very quickly telling us that for guidance to take place, we need the means of transformation, or under the sun and its evidences, and then we need the receiver of the message. And then the receiver of the message might connect and change automatically because the heart is purely upon the data. And if it's not, then they need an attentive ear, they need to be objective with the message and you have to be objective, you cannot be subjective, what is objective and subjective. Do you guys know

00:31:49--> 00:32:26

objective and subjective objective is when you listen to something, giving it a chance to guide you. subjective is when you listen to something with some form of bias, you have some form of previous notion that you believe is the truth and cannot be changed. So when you listen to the Quran, or you listen to guidance, you try and interpret what you listening to, into a manner that doesn't contradict what you believe will read. And this is wrong. This is incorrect. Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all brothers and sisters in some This is just one verse from

00:32:28--> 00:33:06

from from Surah Kahf. And I advise you all to open source the path and to read it and to read it's it's meaning it's full of lessons brothers and sisters in Islam. It's it has knowledge about our beginning about our end, it has knowledge about the heat and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how allies we have our thoughts, and how unless some kind of word that lays the wheel of what is in our hearts, it has knowledge about Prophethood it has knowledge about the belief in angels, it discusses the two groups of people those have ultimate success. And those people or failure discusses them as well. almost anywhere balance or above. He tells us about the two theorems

00:33:06--> 00:33:50

he tells us about death, which is a former a minor piano and then the greater piano which is resurrection the day of pm only when we resurrected on the Day of Judgment Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us details about the two worlds the lesser one which is the life of this world and the Greater One, which is the life of the hereafter. It also deals with those who choose to worship their minds. Instead of worshipping Allah. They give their minds more importance in the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet, Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights this for us and Allah subhanho wa Taala shares with us important, important verses regarding those who do this that if if, meaning if they hear something

00:33:50--> 00:34:30

that Allah tells them, they think about it, if it makes sense to them, they'll accept if it doesn't make sense to the reject this is dangerous. This is you worshipping your mind when your mind only has the ability to know the physical. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells you the knowledge of the physical and the metaphysical. But Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us knowledge of the life of this world and that which is beyond the life of this world that which the mind cannot understand, except with revelation, and except through revelation. So Allah Subhana Allah highlights this for us in Surah Kahf give it a read. Allah subhanho wa Taala also deals with those who always put the

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

intellect before the Quran and the Sunnah, because the origin of the opinion that there's no life after death, or issue of the opinion that there's no resurrection. Why? Because, number one, our bodies are going to the ground and the ground will consume our bodies, our bodies will will spread across millions and trillions of of meters and kilometers across the space of the globe because you turn into sand and it will be consumed by insects and those insects will move and become

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

by other insects and by other insects, and maybe a bird will then eat that insect and fly to another land and your body now is spread over the space of the globe. It doesn't make sense how will we be brought back together? After we tend to bones? You see, this is worshiping the mind, the thinking with the mind, the mind only knows what the mind has seen, the mind hasn't seen as a lens, through observation, how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings you together. Right? So Allah deals with this Allah. Allah says in the Quran, that ally is knowledgeable about his creation. So hello Lola,

00:35:38--> 00:36:02

that, indeed your Lord, He is the knowing creator. And don't forget, He created you from nothing. If Allah created you from nothing, then it's easier for him to bring you back from something. When it was, meaning if you're trying to use your brain, which is harder, for light, all easy, creating you from nothing and creating from something, it's all easy. But if you want to put your brain into

00:36:03--> 00:36:12

if you want to, you know, make your brain the criteria, through which you decide what's right and what's wrong, then think about it. You exist, right?

00:36:13--> 00:36:19

And if you exist, how did you exist? Did you create yourself? Or did someone create you?

00:36:20--> 00:36:22

And if you were created, did you come from?

00:36:24--> 00:36:43

What did you come from? You came from nothing. So Allah created you from nothing, you didn't create yourself, Allah created you from nothing. So I can bring you back from the soil from something. Think about it. It was so hard a lot. Any if you if you really want to get technical brothers and sisters in Islam, our minds alone, our minds alone,

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

our minds alone,

00:36:48--> 00:37:36

is efficient in this matter, in affirming Well, I wouldn't say is totally sufficient, but it has sufficiency, we need the mind and we need the revelation. However, the mind if its objective, right, it can find it plausible that they can be life after death. This is what the Polish was saying. He was saying that no, our bodies will be spread out how we're going to come to come back together, alive. Stay alive is the knowing creator. He creates you and he knows where the pieces of your body has gone, even though it expands through the spans of the earth. And in one beat. Every piece of the creation of Allah will be brought together in an instant on the day of pm. Allah is all able to

00:37:36--> 00:37:46

handle who were to Allah he's Alka de la la parte de la looked at it as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in his book regarding this point, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says

00:37:48--> 00:38:00

he highlights this to us very clearly. And also Allah subhana wa Taala highlights first a wisdom because this is what the Polish was saying. There was the wisdom of coming together. Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:38:01--> 00:38:21

it will be no Humala Ed that we didn't create the heavens and the earth in play was no purpose. Right? There's a purpose right there's a system there's a plan in place it's full of wisdom right your existence is full of wisdom in any case brothers and sisters in Islam please give

00:38:23--> 00:38:27

please give a sort of tough and shall love I've

00:38:31--> 00:38:34

created in your hearts enough interest to

00:38:36--> 00:38:54

to go on a journey will sort of cough and read it in Arabic and read the English translation get a good English translation and read it and understand it in the shower it will be a means of transformation remember, we want to transform we want to grow from that which we know radical love. Alright, so we have some questions in sha Allah

00:38:58--> 00:39:01

All right, Michelle lon I'm getting many messages on the

00:39:02--> 00:39:11

on an Instagram Salaam Alaikum everyone Mashallah we have someone from Zimbabwe as well. This is Terry Hanna we Allah subhanaw taala Bless you.

00:39:12--> 00:39:16

Masha Allah, Allah, nice to see everyone and

00:39:18--> 00:39:26

I'm sorry if I can't take any calls right now I just want to get to some of the questions that came through yesterday but very quickly, let me just dive onto

00:39:27--> 00:39:34

YouTube as well and see what some of the questions what some of the people are saying I said I'm wanting everyone to those who are greeting me.

00:39:36--> 00:39:40

Mashallah, wasa insha Allah. Also if you could email me

00:39:42--> 00:40:00

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

Please

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

don't be any Shall I will visit you

00:40:05--> 00:40:28

are on one does your love bless your channel Quran wonders. Allah bless you for your channel and we'll log on to steadfastness in running the channel. Alright, let's quickly go on to Facebook. All right, Facebook, Masha, Allah, Allah, Masha rocheleau, Ebrahim or Lilya from the UK wailuku salam, ala Ibrahim, and everyone else who has greeted me almost kinda who Allah bless you all.

00:40:30--> 00:40:51

All right, I can see the questions coming up, but I have to give some form of priority to the earliest questions that came in. So very quickly, let's go through them. The first question I have, and remember brothers and sisters in Islam, I said we must go to the website and then click the link the blue link that takes you to the form and you ask your questions they inshallah. But very quickly, somebody said,

00:40:53--> 00:41:16

this is a question from the UK if a husband tells his wife that if you leave the house, it's over. And she leaves the house does this constitute a divorce? alone we stand alone understand, firstly, brothers and sisters in Islam, this is not the way marriages should exist. Marriages shouldn't exist, like this brothers and sisters in Islam where the term divorce is.

00:41:19--> 00:41:19

Or you know,

00:41:21--> 00:41:50

threats of separation and so on and so forth is the loom of off the day in the marriage. It shouldn't it shouldn't be like this brothers and sisters in Islam. So ask Allah subhana wa tada to guide us to transform our marriages. I mean, you're a bride. I mean, it's, we have the corona pandemic, but honestly, even in the way some of our Muslim brothers and sisters manage themselves in marriages. This is a pandemic as well along with Stan, wherever we travel, we see a lot of culture in play. And

00:41:52--> 00:42:27

too literal from the Sunnah, unfortunately, in any case, in answering this question, if a person tells his wife, let me get back to the question quickly, if he tells his wife, if you leave the house, it's over. In this particular circumstance, we need to ask the husband What did you mean when you said it's over? Did you mean divorce? Right? If he if he admits and he says yes, I'm in divorce, and the wife didn't leave the house, then a divorce has taken place. So we need to find out from the husband. What did he mean? Because when he said it's over, he could have meant the marriage is over. You could have meant my love for you is over. He could have meant my happiness for you is over what

00:42:27--> 00:42:52

did he need? We need to know what he meant. We Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. We have a question from Bangladesh, which states that the COVID cases have increased after the masajid have opened? It's not necessarily the case that COVID has led to this but many people are scared to go to the masjid due to the the increased cases. Can you please shed some light on the stape brothers and sisters in Islam I have spoken about

00:42:53--> 00:42:57

this matter about attending

00:42:58--> 00:43:14

Salah to Gemma and attending the Juma prayer, when I think it was about three, three weeks ago when the masajid in Saudi Arabia opened and plans were for other massages to open in different parts of of the world. I know in the UK, for example, on the Fourth of July,

00:43:16--> 00:43:20

congregational worship will be permitted even though last week they did open the massage it

00:43:22--> 00:43:26

and I want to summarize what I said in that video what what I said was

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

number one,

00:43:29--> 00:43:40

concessions are still in place because even though the massages are opening its opening with strict social distancing rulings and social distance and distancing rulings, and also in some countries,

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

even more critical conditions have been placed on them on places of worship such as if

00:43:50--> 00:43:56

or such as everyone has to register when they come in, they have to be screened. The temperatures have to be screened.

00:43:57--> 00:44:03

And everyone is registered and then if one person catches it, then obviously the rest of the congregation

00:44:04--> 00:44:06

will be asked to,

00:44:07--> 00:44:32

to quarantine themselves for 14 days and so on and so forth. So in light of all these factors in play, the concession of not going to the masjid still remains, if you pray at home, this unit you're not sinful, okay? Now in the event that you fear going to the masjid then the same ruling applies the same ruling that we we spoke about at the beginning of the lockdown when we said that.

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

Or sorry before lockdown when Corona was announced as something that would that is spreading and it was becoming a pandemic, our massage, it was still open and I released a video on this. And I explained in it, the do's and the don'ts and the concessions and the levels of the concessions and so on. And so on and so forth. The same things discussed then apply now. If you sincerely feel that you're not comfortable, you're not safe going to the machine because cases are climbing and so on and so forth.

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

It is, especially if you live with people at home who are considered high risk, then it's absolutely fine for you to pray at home and even not attend the Juma to pray for her instead. Okay, because you are excused, we are living in a period of concessions, and the concessions are still in play and it will be in play brothers and sisters in Islam for for a few more months to come. So I hope this answers the question you're not sinful if you choose to pray at home. And this includes select to do more or you're not sinful if you choose to pray at home and not attend at the selective Juma. In fact, not everyone can attend the Jamaat because of the decreased numbers that the masajid can cater

00:45:38--> 00:46:10

for. So in that circumstance, they would pray at home anyway. All right. So think about your situation. Think about your situation in the home, think about the situation in your community. And then look at the masjid see what procedures are being implemented. If you feel comfortable Alhamdulillah if you don't feel comfortable, there's no sin on you. Praying at home and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. All right, we have another question here from the UK. And it's talking about Islamic financing to purchase homes.

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

In terms of

00:46:15--> 00:46:35

entities that can provide Islamic Finance, this is not something for me to speak about, especially this summer, based in the UK currently. How, however, in a nutshell, in a nutshell, if we're talking about the products, the Islamic financing products, then in a nutshell, if those products are

00:46:37--> 00:47:21

dealt with, in a way that conforms to IOC pay attention IO fee guidelines. Now, I may disagree with some of the IOC guidelines, but i o fees, a reputable Islamic finance institution, they're an independent body and they research banking standards, and financial institution, institution standards for Islamic Finance, financial institutions and banks to use, okay, and they have a large body of scholars that run this research and then discuss this research and then through a vote, are these stuck up to these final rules released. So if the if I the standard financial institution of the bank

00:47:24--> 00:47:35

handles the product, the Islamic finance product based on IO v. guidelines, then in this particular circumstance, it would be okay to engage

00:47:37--> 00:47:40

in getting your financing through this particular

00:47:42--> 00:47:45

method. Okay. However, however, should we

00:47:47--> 00:47:52

engage financial institutions, Islamic financial institutions and engage

00:47:53--> 00:48:02

Islamic banks for the sake of engagement, meaning because it's there, then we should go and purchase a house? No. And this is why I don't want this matter openly. Because

00:48:03--> 00:48:34

no matter how things are structured, there's still an idea of debt present, are you putting yourself maybe not in debt, but you're putting yourself in a situation where you carry a financial burden, which means the other rules of Islam apply, right, the rules about not being wasteful rules about not biting more than you can chew. Right. So ideally, you want to save up and then purchase your home. But some people have unique circumstances whereby if they live in their current circumstances situation, their marriage might end up in a divorce. So the children will be affected heavily in terms of how they brought up and

00:48:36--> 00:48:49

you know, council housing, for example, in the countries that offer it is not something that is that is safe, you can be put in any neighborhood, and that neighborhood can become a burden upon your Muslim household. And

00:48:50--> 00:49:27

some people say rent, but the scholars have. They've had they've discussed this concept of rent, is it wise to rent for 30 4050 years when you living as a Muslim minority in the West, some don't believe it's wise. Especially since in many cases, when you rent you actually assist the landlord to buy more houses on the river. And so some have said, No, you should. If you need to move out of your current home, you should try and put together a down payment and purchase a home in this particular circumstance. And you should discuss this with your Islamic scholarship, your local Islamic scholarship, this is not something you should decide for yourself, you should visit your Islamic

00:49:27--> 00:49:59

local scholarship, explain to them your circumstances, and then explain to them how getting a home will help solve the problems that you have, that you're facing in your current home and then let them advise in the event that it's decided that having your own home is the best practice. And then you visited an Islamic financial institution or an Islamic bank, and they ran the product based on IoT standards, then in this case in Sharla, there's no issue and Allah Subhana Allah knows best personally, as you can see from my answer, I don't have a blanket. Yes. And I don't have a blanket. No, I

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

Give us answers based on a case to case. Unfortunately, some people have spread messages that have said that he approves the offering of a particular bank. And I've heard this in different countries. And I've never ever written a fatwa, or given a fatwa about a specific bank, and a specific offering, telling people that this particular product is halal or not halal. I've never done that. Rather, I advise on a case to case depending on circumstance and situation. And if there is a case whereby a person needs to get themselves at home for themselves, then in this particular circumstance, I assist them further through the process, trying to find them the most.

00:50:44--> 00:50:56

The best application of the Islamic financing products as close to what is established in the books of faith and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Alright, we have some questions here very quickly. I'm just gonna go to

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

Allah bless you. Davies, Allah bless you and bless your daughter. Alright. Someone's asked a question here very quickly about sorry. I don't know what's happening. I'm missing the

00:51:15--> 00:51:17

I can't scroll unfortunately.

00:51:21--> 00:51:21

But

00:51:23--> 00:51:39

what can you do if no Islamic insurance available for business stocks and goods in terms of Islamic insurance, it's a zero sum game. Sorry, not Islamic insurance insurance. Insurance is a zero sum game, which means one party wins at the expense of the other. This is a gamble. And this is forbidden in Islam.

00:51:44--> 00:52:23

However, in the absence of Islamic takaful cooperative insurance, then getting the insurance versus not getting it boils down to scholarly reasoning, local scholarly reasoning in the country and city that you are in, they will look at the matter and decide whether as an exception to the rule, you can purchase insurance and highlight the types of insurance that you can purchase because it will definitely be based on on necessity and necessity shouldn't be understood by individuals themselves. Rather, the Islamic scholarship of that particular locality should get together and highlight to the community what constitutes necessity, and what doesn't constitute necessity and Allah subhanho wa

00:52:23--> 00:52:27

Taala knows best. Alright, let's quickly go on to

00:52:29--> 00:52:33

on to YouTube. Do we have any questions on YouTube?

00:52:34--> 00:52:55

Okay, questions are still coming in here. Let's quickly go on to Facebook. On Facebook. We have a question. Sarah Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh I live in Santa Monica de Lisle obrah catch. We just have five minutes we'll try and be as quick as we can supplication in the state of frustration. Are we allowed to supplicate the power of prayer sooner prayer?

00:52:57--> 00:53:34

The question is asking about do I in sujood. When you Institute Can you make is to do during the obligatory prayers? The answer is yes. During the obligatory prayers, as well as the voluntary prayers. However, if you are reading behind the Imam, you need to follow the map. If the map doesn't give you enough time to make the drug and you cannot stay behind and make the Doha you have to follow the email. Right if we want to. Okay, the second question if we want to replace an old Quran if it's torn because of constant use, and I wish to buy a new one, what should I do with old copy with the old copy, you can distribute it to any standard organization that deals with receiving

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

copies of the Quran, they know what they will do with it. Or as some of the scholars have said, based on the practice of this man, if not a fan that I'll be alone and you can then the aura and this will not be disrespectful because you burning it to protect the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala being abused

00:53:52--> 00:53:55

is meditation and yoga permissible in Islam.

00:53:57--> 00:54:04

Having thinking days and stretching as an exercise is permissible, no doubt about it. But

00:54:05--> 00:54:13

doing things that have a clear line of sight to the religious worship, of

00:54:15--> 00:54:48

have people that worship of systems that are not from Islam, then this should be avoided, this should be avoided. Okay. So this is for you to decide, I'm going to give you a guideline, I'm going to give you a guideline. And this is what you should follow. Somebody might say that no, I do the yoga stretches even though it might have a close relationship to the actual worship that they do. Because some people they they believe the sun gives them powers. If you look at some of these yoga poses, it's posing in such a way at a particular time of the day to the sun and they believe they received powers and strength from the sun and so on and so forth. Then this is obviously not this is

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

not Islamic. A person might say I do it just for the sake of the Scriptures, not for the sake of what they do it for what we say in this particular circumstance is better for you to do other stretches that that don't make you resemble

00:55:00--> 00:55:33

The stretches of those that do it for other reasons and Allah Subhana Allah knows best meditation is fine again, but it shouldn't be done in a way when someone sees you they think you're worshiping other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best I've given you, a guidance you you can apply it in terms of where you come from. How are the yoga stretches perceived? In some places, it's perceived as worship. If somebody sees you doing it, they'll think that you are from a particular religion. In this case, you should have in some places, it's not perceived like that. It has no inclination based on the guidelines I've given you. You can decide and in all circumstances,

00:55:33--> 00:55:45

in all circumstances, a salami to lay shade, as the scholars of Islam say that safety is something that cannot be matched keeping yourself safe from any being on the safe side is the best play.

00:55:47--> 00:55:57

be keen on keeping yourself in a circumstance and situation where you won't have to answer for it on the day of tm no doubt is the best place and Allah subhanho wa Taala to Allah knows best.

00:56:01--> 00:56:31

Is it obligatory in Islam to keep the Father's name Yes, you have to keep the Father's name. But as for the scent name, it depends if the surname is actually the Father's name, then you can't change that particular name. But some some people have a family name that has no relation to the father's lineage. If that is the case, then the surname can be changed but if the surname actually represents the Father's name, and the lineage of the Father, then it cannot be changed.

00:56:34--> 00:56:36

Someone is saying they

00:56:40--> 00:56:54

like babe, Baraka lo fi calm sorry, if I've missed some of your messages. If I've missed some of your messages, inshallah, I'll try go to the live stream and get them answered with Elijah Allah on the Facebook page. There. Let me just have a look quickly here.

00:57:32--> 00:58:10

Is it okay to have a portal, having various schools and listing even if some teach music or yoga? Okay, I mean, obviously more information is required. But if you if the idea by you listing the schools is to highlight options for people to consider, because those are the options that are available, then there's no problem in this right. But you should be particular and clear in terms of the presentation so let's say that this is a school these are the positives of the school. These are the negatives of the school so you listing things with information if you do it this way. Ayesha, this will be okay loveless.

00:58:14--> 00:58:18
