We testify the room serve Allah guides and then can misguide

Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh May the peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all. And I welcome you all to direct access part to our
second session together. Coming to you live on Isla Hamed on Facebook, and on YouTube and on Twitter's periscope as well
as per our norm inshallah, we'll take a lesson. And then from there, we will look into some of the questions that you have been ilahi Tyler. Now in our last session together,
Allah subhanahu Allah blessed us to take a reflection from sort of tough and you will find that
in the now uploaded video, obviously it ran out live, but now it's it's uploaded with 11 hemd.
On Facebook and on YouTube and on Twitter, we discussed a reflection from sort of cough, and
in particular, a verse of transformation. And we discussed that verse in detail within the paradigm of transformation and exactly how to
have a proactive connected relationship to the Quran.
For today's session, and today's lesson, I want to discuss a little bit with you all regarding do
we know about the importance of data, but I received many emails, many questions
regarding this particular
matter of making dua and you know, still being in difficulty for example, making it through and feeling as if the DA isn't being accepted, and so on and so forth. And I thought I I shed some light on this particular matter
for many reasons Firstly, ensure light bring it hopefully it will bring peace and solace to us all and it will be a means of us continuing with our dry and secondly, so that it also assists assist me in getting the idea across to you all rather than having to type out an answer on the different emails that I receive not I know brothers and sisters in Islam Pamela, we are living through difficult times and we understand from the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah that you know every year
in which we get closer to piano.
Life will just get more more difficult right to be more tests.
Blessings will will decrease. We already understand so Pamela, we we live through it we understand in practice
how important blessings are to our time and to our wealth. And we know this in practice because Pamela nowadays, we just don't
you know, the blessings of time, it's literally Friday to Friday.
beyond our ability, our ability to imagine it this is this is how it works on Allah.
And then even with our money, right, it's not about new taxes coming in, and, you know,
the concept of inflation and so on and so forth. That aside, just in, you know, with regards to money itself,
we just feel that our money really buys us less, no doubt, inflation, and taxes, and so on and so forth have a role to play. But, you know, even with stable currencies, Pamela, we see that across the spectrum of the globe, what you could buy with that money before, you really can't do the same with it. Now, you know, the stories that our grandparents shared with us from from long ago.
Those stories of patola seem like fairy tales, you know, when they tell us about how they would
do, you know, plan to do 10 things in a day and by the way, Mashallah, those 10 things are done today, you and I plan to do 10 things in a day, and by Mercury, we've only done five things, right? And when we think about their stories, we think so Pamela You know, when they're telling us something, you know, from the imagination, or was it a reality because we just can't seem to
to understand so Hannah law,
you know, the reality of the day's income comparison to ours, and let's not forget, we live at a time where money is plentiful, we live at a time when we have so much technology that has brought, you know, things you know, brought distant things closer, that's the reality, right? things which are so far away have become closer.
In any case, this is what I want to take in Sharla for the first part of our session together the importance of drag but before that, you will see me looking as I said around because firstly on Instagram, or somebody come to our brothers and sisters there, and everyone on YouTube and on
on Facebook and on Twitter, salaam aleikum to you all and please drop me a message and let me know that you can hear me especially our brothers and sisters on on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube I just given me a message please message me back that you can hear me clearly. I know on Instagram, they can hear me because I can see all the different
colored hearts and waves and Mashallah I see brother walk past present with him. So just give me a heads up in Sharla. And if there's anything that needs to be changed, I will change it effectively and accordingly so that inshallah you do have a better experience particle effect. So I'm just waiting for our brothers and sisters on YouTube and WhatsApp to please let me know if I am audibly clear, is my audition at a good level. And also to our Brother Mohammed halfa g from jewsbury and Mohammed Ibrahim, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you both. Thank you for messaging and thank you for Mashallah being dedicated on all the programs that

stuff for the love stuff for the last half an alumna Allah subhanho. Allah forgive us all, and bless our time and bless our wealth and grant us better than we dream of in both worlds we should always ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive us because seeking forgiveness is one of the means of
one of the means of
one second brothers and sisters in Islam. I'm sure you can hear the feedback through here. All right, I am audibly cleared. hamdulillah Excellent, excellent. Excellent and nice to see you all on Facebook as well said I'm Wiley Kumar. Mikela here but again, welcome everyone. All right. So, brothers and sisters in Islam, do Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught us eloquently.
The importance of da he taught this to us because Allah subhanho wa Taala taught it to him Allah subhanho wa Taala taught it to him. In the Quran, in Viet in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala tweeted him via the revelation that Allah gave him in the form of the sun. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us a Dora rule every bed that is the essence of the bed. And this is not a simple statement. Brothers and sisters in Islam when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us there is the essence of ibadah and we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching him right. This is not a light statement. It is a heavy statement and I ran
an Instagram Live session with our brother from Nigeria just a few days ago. I think
was last Sunday. And I touched on this a little bit in which I said that die is of two types. You know, based on this narration that is the essence of worship, the scholars have said from this duration and also from an ayah in the Quran which Allah subhanahu Allah says, Allah bukom with the only s that you will acquire
a loss of Hannah who acts taala he says that, he says, And your Lord
commanded you to observe the Dora, and Allah will answer your door, okay, or he will receive your dua and answer your door and except your door.
But when we look closely at this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala says thereafter in the leadin, as stuck be ruler and embedded, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed those who are arrogant with regards to my worship, they don't worship out of arrogance. So the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to at the beginning of the verse and then worship at the end of the verse, or at the in the next half of the verse and the fact that in the sooner we have this narration at Tao, who will be better that is the essence of the bed, the prophets or the scholars of Islam have deduced from this that to add from a [???]tier perspective constitutes two things, it constitutes two things
number one, it constitutes what we know as do which is to raise our hands and supplicate and ask from Allah subhanho attack. This is do I okay, this is what you know, this is the quickest and most prominent meaning that comes to your mind and my mind when we hear the term do out or someone tells us to make that right. But there is another meaning. And this is the second meaning of do and that is everything that constitutes the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Salah is the recitation of the Quran is do
you know, looking after the Pillars of Islam and other commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala is drought. Because do our carries a an umbrella, wholesome meaning and that is the meaning of worship. So everything that is worship is included in it. So Pamela, and we understand from this brothers and sisters in Islam, from the ayah that I just decided when the Allah subhanho wa Taala says with Rooney as the gibler come, we understand two meanings that Allah is saying, worship me, and I will accept your worship and a lysing supplicate to me, and I will respond to your supplication. This is what we are learning from the eye. Okay. And that's why it's important to go back to the books of
the FCO, so we can, we can absorb
the exact meanings of an ayah the Quran is very deep, right. And here we see so Pamela, a lot of the times we read the IOE, and the translations as well just mentioned supplicated doesn't talk about worship. In addition to this, we have what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, when a better that derives the essence of worship, and we can understand this, in the same ways that do I
carries the meaning of everything that constitutes worship. And also we understand that there is from the pinnacle of
the relationships that we have with Allah subhanho wa Taala and thus we see Subhanallah how the Salah is the most important pillar after the showerhead. The Salah is the most important pillar after the showerhead, because the Salah is filled with dirt.
Right the Salah is filled with
the fatty half is a dry as well. Right? And inshallah we can have a session about the fatty hand explanation of the meanings of the fatty have begun later on in another session. But the fact you have brothers and sisters in Islam is a drought, and the Salah is a dua to Han Allah. And thus we see it as the most important pillar after the shadow. In fact, it is the most important pillar in terms of protection of the showerhead. And that is why, from the earliest of generations, they would say that, you know, they never viewed anything as a differentiator between belief and disbelief, besides salah and a person's relationship with the seller, because the seller protects belief and
faith without it, that belief and faith is going to subside. Right? So so panela we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam teaching us that derives the essence of worship, and then we see the most important pillar of Islam being Salah, and then we have the eye in the Quran, which Allah uses the term to, to reference supplication and to reference worship. So Pamela, so through our discussion about do we understand the importance of salah and brothers and sisters in Islam most of your questions with regards to do our I mean, I don't understand from it that you don't understand the importance of it martial law. Clearly people are making dry and asking from Allah subhanho wa Taala
but people are concerned that the drugs are not being accepted.
this is, you know, this is the focal point of my
discussion about drive today because we can discuss drive from many angles. But this is the this is the focal angle that we want to use. Why do we feel our drive isn't being answered? I think there's two reasons predominantly, the first reason is number one ignorance.
Ignorance with regards to who Allah subhanho wa Taala is, if we understood who Allah subhanho wa Taala is, if we studied the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, we would never feel that I would do I isn't being accepted. That's number one. Number two ignorance also, about how Allah subhanho wa Taala answers I will do. Many people think if I make it dry, answering the dry means Allah is going to give me what I want. And this is incorrect brothers and sisters in Islam doesn't mean this at all. Doesn't mean this at all. Right? And we understand this because of our poor knowledge of the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with regards to this
concept of duality, so ignorance is
in play. The second reason and the second reason is a result of the first reason. The second reason is acting in haste. We are people who want everything instead.
Instead, right? Because especially nowadays, right? If we look at those born, post, those born post 83, and especially those born post 94, especially those born post 94.
And then obviously those born at the turn of the century.
Everyone is used to things being instant, right? Even a child today, a two year old, you can take a picture. So Hanna line, the two year old will tell you can I see? Can I see? Can I see? Right? They want to look at the picture.
Right? Well, I mean, I know when I was small. If my pet my parents took a picture, I couldn't see the picture until they printed the real right.
Because they had one of those cameras back in the day you had a really in the camera, and then the camera would would would would flash your open open up its its shutter allow light in and that light would would latch onto onto a reel. And then that really would have to be processed. But you can only process the reel after you've taken your 30 photos for example. That's how it was back in the day. And then sometimes parallel when you finally print print the real. And you look at the pictures you say some heinola My eyes were closed. What a bad picture. Oh, this picture came out blurry. So panela right. That's what happens. Right? So what happens is now you had your graduation and your
parents took the pictures, but somehow not the pictures didn't come out right? The room was too dark in the flesh didn't work properly. It's not like now. Right? So brothers and sisters in Islam, we are living in that instant age. The food is instant, fast food gratification as some of us have said just I can't just follow him on Instagram and other places that the
the gratification is instant. Everything we want is on demand look at the stem on demand. And he so heilala I don't like this term because Muslims are not about on demand with except for that which is a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, and we have to be patient so that we are on demand with that which pleases Allah Salah is on demand when the time for Salah starts, yes, Allah gives us time. But it's still on demand, the earlier we break, the better. And we need patience to build ourselves to observe that Salah on time. But we don't apply the on demand concept to the things that require, quote unquote, on demand we apply to everything else. Everything has to be on demand. If
it's not on demand, it's a problem. I mean, to the extensive heinola, that now if if we purchase something, and this, you know, and something goes wrong with it, and it's under warranty, we want it to be sorted out immediately. And now if somebody tells you 74 hours, 72 hours, and so on and so forth, we feel stressed out about it.
And I don't know if it's a subconscious thing. Or if it's related to the first point, as I said earlier, it's a matter of ignorance, we are moving this this this concept. This is neurons that we have in our brain that are so used to having things instantly into our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and then we go on to judge things based on this bubble that we are in, right and then we start laying claim some people some handle if they're not careful and check upon whispers to them too much. They start saying you know Allah doesn't love me a license answering my door or I make so much throughout life not answering my dryer and this is a manifestation now of bad character
with Allah subhanho wa Taala and going against the teaching of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala he told us to always have good thoughts about Allah. He taught us to always have good hope in Allah. He told us to always be positive people he told us to not die except
That we have good hope that Allah will enter us into gender. He told us not to ask for any gender but to ask for the highest gender, irrespective of our circumstances situation, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, right? So this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us, but this is our behavior nonetheless. Now brothers and sisters in Islam,
we need to work on these two things.
And number, I mean, with regards to ignorance, we fix it with knowledge. Okay. And with regards to haste, then we got to fix it with knowledge number one, but also we got to fix it with getting rid of this on demand culture, when it comes to our here after.
All right, and this requires us to change our habits. Right, and there's a good book on this called The Power of Habit, which you should you should look look for, has very interesting techniques in terms of how to develop new neutrons in the brain, that that assist you in bringing about new habits in your life. Right, everyone waving on Instagram, I wave back to you. Allah bless you all, it's difficult for me to interact. But I am seeing your messages about a colorful vehicle. So we have to fix these two matters with knowledge and also training ourselves out of this concept of acting in haste and everything being on demand, we have to train ourselves out of it. Brothers and sisters in
Islam. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have certain things that should be on demand. That's different. But I am saying that in a lot of things, it doesn't have to be instant and we shouldn't have this addiction towards instant gratification. Because if we do, we're going to mess up things with regards to our hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. Now
another discussion that needs to happen as to why our do are all we see. Well, let me let me reframe. Let me reframe the question we said first, Allah subhanho wa Taala always answers our advice, okay. But this is if our driver reaches him. This is if I were to reach him. If I would do our reaches Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala will answer our di in one of three ways.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you will give us what we want, because it's good for us. That's number one. or number two, Allah subhanho wa Taala will remove a calamity that's about to afflict us, which we don't know about. And because we don't know about it, we didn't ask him for it. And had we known about it, we wouldn't have asked him for what we asked him for, but rather we would have asked a lot to remove that calamity. So Allah subhanho wa Taala took your door and removed, he gave you what you would have wanted had, you know,
so Allah did answer your door.
But you just didn't know.
You didn't know. And then Subhana Allah, you started blaming Allah, Allah gave you you just don't know.
Right? So Han Allah. Then a third way in which Allah subhanho wa Taala data answers our drought, which we learned from the Sunnah brothers and sisters in Islam, is that Allah subhanho wa Taala.
what does he do, he keeps our draft for the Deaf gamma.
Because, or so that we can use those to our eyes in case we are short
with regards to our deeds, and tipping the scales in our favor, to get to gender, or to gain a higher rank engine.
And had we known that we would have been so many deeds short, or we would have known that would have been so as meaning so many deeds sort of entry into gender or so many deeds short of getting to a higher gender, we wouldn't have asked Allah for what we asked for with regards to the dunya we would have put that aside and asked a lot to give us that he wants to take us to Jen.
So a lot keeps you dry, to give you on the dfcm
so hasn't Allah given you in all these three circumstances brothers and sisters in Islam?
has an hour dryer been answered? This isn't the case of the dryer reaching Allah subhanho wa Taala as we've said, but the point is, hasn't our dryer been answered? Of course our dryer has been answered. Right? And that is why even when we spoke about learning about Allah when we learn about Allah, there's two names of Allah that we can't separate. Are they certain Names of Allah that exist in pairs in which we can not separate?
Okay? We cannot separate them. Why? Because if we separate them the meaning, the beautiful meaning
It's only beautiful when they together and last names. Oh, beautiful. These attributes are beautiful. And this name is the name of Corbett. Albus of Aqaba, del basit. Yes, there are two names but
They joined together and we're not allowed to separate them Why? We can only understand the true meaning if they together a car with albinism, the one who was holes and the one who gives without measure,
the one who was holes and the one who gives abundance, this Allah subhanho attack. Why can't we separate this? Because if we separate it, and you and then you say from the names of Allah is the one who was holds.
This has the true meaning, but he could also carry a meaning. That's not so beautiful, because with human beings when we withhold things, right, sometimes we withhold because of personal issues, sometimes we withhold because we don't have
we don't have enough. But what Allah subhanho wa Taala he's the one who was holding the one who gives abundantly meaning that when Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't give you what you want, it's not because he doesn't have, it's not because there isn't enough, right, so because of some personal issue, but rather Allah subhanho wa Taala, when he doesn't give you he's actually giving you because when he doesn't give you, it's for a reason that's better for you, such as removing a calamity, such as going to gender, such as, for example, a lot of knowing that if I give my slave this thing that he or she is asking for, they will become arrogant, and they will become arrogant, and the agenda I
want to give them, they will be barred from it. So Allah doesn't give you. So if a lot doesn't give you for these reasons, brothers and sisters in Islam, he's actually giving you
right and when you understand these two names together, when you understand these two names together, you understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who gives even when he doesn't give some kind of law.
And this is how we should understand it a capital boss refers to the one who gives abundantly even when he doesn't give meaning even when my heart and mind feels that I haven't been given a lot has actually given me in abundance.
Now this is with regards to when our daughter reaches Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why brothers and sisters in Islam, it's important to understand this, it's knowledge that removes all these other issues that we have wish upon. Then shapen uses our ignorance as a tool against us and makes and then when he succeeds, he wins in causing our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala to diminish
and to disintegrate and to retrogress.
Right. And then slowly but surely we see our Eman, reducing and then our relationship with our Salah, reducing and so on and so forth until we start giving up on things brothers and sisters in Islam Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all I mean, so how do we sort out the issue of ignorance through knowledge? How do we sort out the issue of haste and this this
culture of everything on demand through knowledge and also through training ourselves developing new habits that work against the concept of instant gratification. Now as I said, this is what the biggest when our do our reaches a lot but what happens if I do I doesn't reach a lot or somebody might say but Subhan Allah, all I will do as reach Allah and I say to you brothers and sisters in Islam, this is not entirely true. Who said to you all I will do is reach Allah subhanho wa Taala Who said that?
This is where many people
they they make a grave mistake brothers and sisters in Islam.
Right? They make a grave mistake. What is that grave mistake the grave mistake brothers and sisters in Islam is in the fact that you are complaining that Allah hasn't accepted you do out but you haven't asked yourself did my dry reach Allah subhanho wa Taala in the first place.
Now what are those? What are the reasons through which our devices do not reach Allah Subhana who attack?
Have we asked ourselves this question?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told us there are circumstances that we bring upon ourselves through which Allah subhanho wa Taala does not receive our door.
Right? such as brothers and sisters in Islam, disrespecting our parents, if we disrespect our parents, our dress
will not reach Allah subhanho wa Taala in the first place. Right? This is and there's a famous narration in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about three people who are walking and rain began to fall upon them. So they took refuge in a cave. And once they were in this cave, there was some form of rock slide and rocks fell and shut the entrance of the cave. So they said to each other let's make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala using the best deed that we
have performed. And then ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to remove the rock because of that deed. So one of them said, Allah, my parents were old. And I used to go out
to look after the animals so that the animals could graze on my return, I would look the animals and take the MOOC in a vessel, right? Take the MOOC in a vessel to my parents, so that they can drink. And after they drank to the full, after they drank to the full,
I would then give it to my children and give it to my family and my wife, and so on and so forth to drink, they would get the remainder. All right. Then he said, One day I was delayed on my return, and I found my parents sleeping. And I disliked waking them up, and the children were crying at my feet, they wanted the milk, they were hungry. And this state of affairs obviously continued throughout the period of my parents sleeping. So he says, This man says
to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Yeah, I did it for your sake. And if I did it for your sake, yeah, I love them. Please remove the rock, so that we may at least see the opening, and, and, and see ease. And so Pamela, guess what happened? The Rock moved a little bit.
And the scholars have deduced from this narration, that being dutiful to our parents is a means of our daughters being accepted. And not being beautiful to our parents is a means of our do and not reaching a loss of Anahata. Brothers and sisters in Islam, we may say we are good to our parents. But then being good to your parents is that levels as well.
How good are you to your parents? Or how good are we to our parents? Right? based on how good we are to our parents? Will our do us be accepted? The more righteous we are with our parents, the greater chances Do we have of our do as being answered and not only answered but being answered in a way better than we asked. We spoke about how Allah gives us better than than we ask. I imagine you'd be even more dutiful to your parents, you be even more patient with your parents. And Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you better than you even dream of. So halala right. But by you being disobedient or being obedient but in a poor fashion, then you are has different sort of intensities with regards to
you know the momentum of the DA
in its journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala
right brothers and sisters in Islam so this is one of the reasons What's another reason that prevents our drop from reaching Allah subhanho wa Taala eating haram food and drinking haram drink and wearing haram clothes. And this doesn't mean only haram because you stole but how long because you purchase it with haram wealth such as Riba money and through interest. Brothers and sisters in Islam.
You are borrowing from the bank through interest, borrowings to run your business and the earnings of that business you using it to feed yourself and to quench your thirst and to dress yourself and then you raising your hands to Allah. Allah bless my business yeah Allah bless my family, Allah bless my wealth, yeah, and so on and so forth. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told taught us about a person who's traveling through the desert and is practically lost everything and he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's saying Yara Brb, oh my lord. Oh my, oh my lord. He's asking Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His name's to Jabulani for ways you're
going to get his answer from when he's much. He's much that is haram. And he's married. This is haram and his medical is haram. His his his his drink is haram. His food is haram his dress is what with harem funds, ways you're going to get the answer to his dance from so we need to devise ourselves brothers and sisters in Islam.
You know, how are we with regards to what we what we eat?
And what we put on our body?
Is that what do I actually reaching Allah subhanho wa Taala also brothers and sisters in Islam will end just to give you a quick, quick a quick summary. From the means of our drugs not being answered is not inviting towards good and forbidding evil. There's many narrations authentic narrations in Sahih al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim and the other books of Hadith, which teach us where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is commanding us towards making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala sorry, he's combining us towards inviting towards good and forbidding evil before Allah subhanho wa Taala stops answering our to us.
And the scholars have deduced from this that if you see evil, and you feel no inclination towards stopping it, even if it's the fault in the form of drop
Because obviously, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us this, there's some things you see that are wrong, which you can stop with your hand then you should do so. There's some things where you can't stop it with your hand, but you can stop it with your attempt. So you should do so. There's some things that you can stop it with your tongue so you stop it with drive with your heart. But so many of us see things that are haram and our heart doesn't even feel anything wrong about it.
We don't raise our hands and feel hurt about Allah please correct our affairs. Correct the dress code of of the oma how they dress, correct the interactions between the genders how they interacting Subhana Allah, Allah, it's against the sooner please fix this year Allah, none of us, please guide the people, Allah how many of us are making efforts?
Right, we see the oppression in Muslim lands, how many of us are raising our hands and making to the people of Palestine and other lands we have grave oppression is taking place?
so one of the reasons why I would rather not answer is because we don't practice this important value of Islam, which is looking which is the legacy of them via Alamo Salatu was Salam actually brothers and sisters in Islam, which is inviting towards good and forbidding evil.
Anyway, brothers and sisters in Islam, I hope this sheds some light on the topic and inshallah we can better ourselves as a result, and I hope what I've shared answers all the different emails that you have sent in with regards to do as I said at the beginning, I know we live through difficult times, but we shouldn't lose hope we should still raise our hands and make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala we should be patient, we should understand that our do our is answered, but we should also work on doing that which ensures that I will do as reach Allah subhanho wa Taala. Not to forget brothers and sisters, it is time to take care of the times in which most likely, or in which the
times that assist, our drive is being answered in the most amazing ways such as the last hour on the day of jumar, such as the period between then and here, comma, and so on and so forth with love with other animals or love or send them more about a kind of being.
Alright, let's take some of your questions. A few questions have come in. I'm just going to the different platforms here. We have a boozy from Birmingham a semiconductor surgeon to the do the ahaadeeth which speak about making do after the fog prayer
refer to making the hour before or after that asleep.
Okay, and I have another question. Is it permissible or recommended to raise one's hands after the steam
of the compulsory and voluntary Salah to make dua by barakallahu fig for your question
with regards to
in association with Salah.
Then this refers to making dua before the Salah. This refers to making sure are before the center
we have the headings that we will miss Ruth robiola one in which he mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught him the actions of the last setting during the prayer to decide that they shall hood then to send blessings and salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah Muhammad Allah Allah Allah Mohammed masala ally Brahim until the end of of that
invocation and supplication. And then he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, from year to year aduana ajiboye la,
right. And in another narration,
he mentioned to me at the higher
LMS Allah ajiboye or my or my chef. So, here he teaches us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that after you do the shadow then after you send salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then you make any derived that you wish, which is most beloved.
Okay, and this teaches us that this is part of the Salah, so it's before the Salah, not after the Salah, and this applies to both the photo than the NFL Sala because what generally as a rule, what applies to the following applies to the NFL, Salah as well. Also we have a we have other narration such as the narration of Abu huraira the level and the narration of
the duration of Asia or the level
in which they teach us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught them to seek protection
from for things and we understand that this is done in the Salah way Allah subhanho wa Taala taught them to seek protection from the Fitz and the trials and tribulations of life and death and of life and death and the trials of tribulation of the gel and the trials interviews.
of the grave and the trials and tribulation of the Hellfire, right. So we see that this is in in the Salah, this is in the Salah, and also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Moran Robbie Allah when in the fame in the famous Hadith when he said tomorrow that
panelizer beautiful narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, it's an authentic narration as well found in the sooner the scholars of Hadith consider it authentic. He says to me, that oh mwah By Allah, Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, this is beautiful Allah
and we pray that we meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of tm and he loves us.
I mean, you're so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then gave him advice and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let the underfeed do Budi Cooley Salah Uddin
Taku Allahumma inni Allah Vic rica or shoukry kawajiri baddeck
so this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught him is that at the end of your Salah, don't leave out asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to
to assist you in terms of remembering Allah and being grateful to Allah and worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala properly now the majority of the scholars say that duble Kula Salah refers to the portion of the Salah before the setup. Some scholars have said after but this is not a difference of opinion that needs to create any confusion.
But if we look at the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then and then what seems most correct and Allah Subhana Allah knows best is what the majority of the scholars say that it is before the Salaam and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best but for example, this particular to Allah insha Allah de cliquish you click by the tip is then after the celeb then this is fine as well because the concept of of tuberculous Salah carries two meanings it either means as at the end of Salah as part of the Salah or at the end of Salah after person. But generally, I hope this answers the question that do I
can and it's most encouraged that it is done before the salon not after the salon but you can read after the salon as well. In terms of the second question Baraka level vehicle.
We use it
is it permissible to is it permissible to raise one's hand after the taslim it is permissible to raise your hands and make do after the tasleem but it shouldn't be done in a way whereby people feel that it's part and parcel of the Salah. So we do we do it many times and we leave it at sometimes, if that makes sense. And the evidence for this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He told us to make Dre at any time. Right and this includes after the salon. In fact, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also has taught us when we look at collective narrations from him found in the Sunnah that Salah done after a good deed
has a great chance of being accepted and no doubt Salah is a good deed. So the Salah done after it
or the dried and after the Salah constitutes to being done after the good deed but as I said it shouldn't be done in a way that goes against the sooner or in a way that makes people believe that it's part of this of Salah to raise your hands after salah and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best all right we have the next question from from Ziad. He's also asking about the drought of the drought is the hora is it before the Salam or after Allah bless you have is yet it can be done before the Salaam and it can be done after if you if you know it you can do it before and you can do it after as well because the narration about is the hora doesn't
it doesn't sort of specify that it has to be done before it has to be done after so we say it can be done before the salon and it can be done after the salon obviously.
If you need if you haven't memorized it and you need to read it then you do it after and there's no problem in this. We have a question from Nigeria a Somali comb I lost my dad about 23 years ago May Allah subhanho wa Taala
forgive him and have mercy upon him and
make his grave a garden from the goddess of gender. I mean
I lost my father about 23 years ago but me and my biological sister decided to go home for the for eat. And we intended to buy blocks and cement to renovate our dad's burial ground but the problem is that our father's family, the practice black magical love understand Allah subhanho wa Taala guidance. Allah subhanho wa Taala guide them And may Allah subhanho wa Taala not bless their efforts. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make the effort successful. Alone Mr. Ahn and our father was buried in the house that they live in. So we don't want to go there.
Is this a problem? No, this is not a problem. I have the law you can be good to your father without going to
The grave of your father, you can make the art for your father from wherever you are hamdulillah and in fact, you shouldn't go there.
You shouldn't go to this place where evil is being practiced. And if Allah subhanho wa Taala brings about a time where it's easy for you to get rid of this evil then you should,
especially if they're using your father's grave for wrong, but this doesn't have any bearing on your father insha Allah, and you can benefit your father in other ways, like building him a well like making dua for him, like practicing the good teachings that he taught. If you do all these things, Allah subhanho wa Taala will build his agenda for him, even though he's passed away, as we learn from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about how we can benefit or what benefits people after they passed away, a sadaqa jariya which is a continuous charity so you can dig out or sponsor a hip student or build a Masjid or build a madrasa whatever is easy for you financially for
you and your your your family, you your sisters, and you do it with the intention of the rewards of going to your father, this is this is fine, or you
or you put into practice
the good teachings that your father touch, right so if you put into practice the good teachings that you've had the torture Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward your father as well. Or your do out for him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the do out of a righteous child benefits the parents, the parents who have passed away. So please take note of this middle of Spanner word Allah bless you all and grant you patience. We have a question from Canada Assalamu alaikum is it considered backbiting if I asked the opinion of my husband of how to deal with the situation I am facing in my family with my ties of kinship recycle O'Hara and barakallahu flick off the email of
Anwar to Allah bless you and easy affairs and bring unity to your family. In these situations, my dear sister, it's best to leave names out right. Unless you know true advice can be sought
except through mentioning names, okay. So,
feel Allah subhanho wa Taala to the best of your ability.
If you can live out the names, you should give up the names and you should give a hyper hypothetical scenario and then from there, get advice but if the advice cannot be true or cannot be effective, unless names are shared, then you can but in terms of your husband, he needs to train himself, not to allow shape and to make this new knowledge that he has about your relatives, a means of him hating your relatives or changing his character with them. And also, you as the needs to know the rules of, of meetings of of these kinds. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah God to be a man and majelis would be a man means that, you know, all these gatherings have are protected by
confidentiality clauses, which the Shetty has put into place. Okay. So your husband should understand this, then once all this is understood, you can go about the process and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best we have a question from Malaysia, about the ruling of bringing people of Buddha into our organization as advisors
will lie II My dear brother in Islam.
This is a brute this question is broad. And, you know, the answer to this question has scope of being abused and misused?
along the stack? There are a lot of factors that need to be considered before the question can be answered, especially if a particular person, I'll have that you haven't mentioned any names of hamdulillah. That's from the etiquettes of asking a question. If you did, I definitely wouldn't have answered it in any capacity. Because if once you mentioned a name, then this person has rights and they need to be present. So that the person answering the question can also understand their circumstance based on how you've represented them. But in general, brothers and sisters in Islam, it's not a clear yes or a clear No, we have to look at many factors such as what value does this
person bring to the organization?
Right, number one, number two, you know, do they have better attendances or Firstly, you know, the things that you are accusing them of, is it true? other matters of data? then number three, if they are matters of data? Do these people practice it silently by themselves? Or do they call other people to it? Are they influential in terms of
these issues that they have? Right? So do they call people to the beliefs or not also we need to look at what's the long term effect of these people in the organization with the other people of the organization? You know, will the long term effect be positive? Will the long term effect be negative? What effect will these type of people have on the overall vision of the organization meaning you know, some
mean some organizations have a 50 year vision 100 year vision having people like this in the organization? Will it ensure that 100 years from now this organization will be upon the sooner or Won't it be upon the sooner? These are considerations that have to be taken into place before an answer can be given? I hope I've given us some food for thought we have Mohammed Mateen from Bangalore, can we give money to people?
Can we give money to people instead of sacrificing an animal this read because due to Corona people need are more in need of money.
And Allah says in the Quran that the meat
and blood doesn't reach Allah.
But it's the piety and through the money, Masha, Allah the money we are showing piety.
Allah bless you my dear brother Muhammad Mateen and thank you for reading the Quran and pondering over the Quran. You haven't understood the ayah
correctly. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Leanna Leanna La la la, la la, la la la la Can you enter with tapeworm income? Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the meat of the animal and the blood of the animal is not that rich riches Allah but it's the Tuc why you doing the act that reaches Allah. Based on this, my dear brother Mohammed, this doesn't mean that you can substitute the Act, the eye is not telling us that it's permissible to substitute the act. Right rather the eye is teaching us the reality of our relationship with Allah when we go ahead and observe the act. So based on this, I say to you that what you are asking about isn't mutually exclusive. It doesn't mean we sacrifice we
sacrifice or we give the money. Rather it means we sacrifice and we give so that we can sacrifice and give sadaqa right so we should try and do both. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Babe I have a question from Birmingham What do I can be recited for brain tumor and can we blow it into water and drink along with Stanley Allah subhanho wa Taala grand cure to each and every one of us grand cure to those who are afflicted with cancer and Corona and heart diseases and organ based related diseases. I mean, you're a brand I mean Allah subhanho wa Taala grant his patients grant his cure and raise our ranks everyone who is going through this mela shower upon them a beautiful cure I
mean, you're behind me. With regards to your question about what do I can be decided for the brain tumor My dear brother in Islam, any drug from the heart any draw from the heart, but in terms of blowing into water, then yes, you can recite the details of Rukia and blow into water and Zamzam water and drink such as the jaws of Rukia in general, which can be googled and sought via a decent Google search to be Kelly Mattila he Tamati when Sri Maha de la la de la Puma asked me he shaved off a lot of the water for summer was something that I deem suited to Fatiha three times five times or seven times ayatul kursi, three times five times or seven times. The last Ayat of Surah Al Baqarah.
reciting the pulwama, who I had three times who will follow up three times cool I will drop the NASS three times right.
These are recitations of Rukia you blow into the water and drink this is fine but in general understand that any drop from the heart suffices any draft from the heart suffices barakallahu feeco mirrorless panels Allah bless you I hope this is not your your your your your situation My dear brother or situation of anyone in your family but nonetheless May Allah grant patience and ease me control my essays a Salaam alikoum I pray that you are well Chef barkcloth equal trauma I have a question regarding consuming products with ethanol which contain
methanol as part of the product such as vanilla extract.
The ethanol was organically produced and then used in in processing vanilla
consumer, I mean, the general rule here is the will will will the vanilla extract, intoxicate you or will it not intoxicating?
And as such we differentiate between powdered vanilla extract and liquid vanilla extract if if it's in the liquid form, and it's proven to intoxicate the no doubt the Sahara. But I think you asking about the powdered product because it's used as an ingredient. So the powder product and Allah Subhana Allah knows best is fine to be used. Why? Because in the powdered form, the alcohol has no effect.
Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Alcohol in and of itself is a pure substance. Yes, intoxication is is haram. But the substance we're talking about the substance in and of itself, in and of itself. There's two views of the scholars, the majority of the mothership of Islam consider alcohol to be impure.
Because Allah says rich in Amity shavon it's impure and from the worker
Shape Up. However, there's a second view which states that alcohol is, is spiritually impure because it intoxicated. But as a substance physical substance itself, it's pure.
And it's actually used to purify things. And we see today with the whole, all these hand sanitizers, the alcohol based ones, we use it and we pray Salah as well.
Because this is the stronger opinion and a loss of Hannah who Allah knows best that alcohol in and of itself is pure. So this is number one and number two in the powdered form vanilla extract doesn't intoxicate so Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best there's no issue with using vanilla extract and the process of repairing it
from how or what or what I've understood doesn't have any any bearing on this ruling in terms of making it impermissible.

rashon was asking on YouTube due to the current COVID situation giving sacrifices getting difficult what can be done via Allah, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
for taka lahoma Stata that you should be upon the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To the best of your ability, try your best look at different countries where you can find the sacrifice and go ahead with it. But if it's totally impossible, then you are forgiven. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't hold us accountable for circumstances that are beyond our control and you can give that money in charity. In almost no way to Allah bless you. We have a question on Instagram Can I give the cotton and Muslims No, you can't give the cotton and Muslims unless you have great confidence that by doing so they will accept Islam. So it's given for them to soften the hearts to enter Islam.
But again, you shouldn't make this decision yourself. You should speak to Islamic scholarship but as in general, soccer is for the believers and Allah subhanho wa Taala has set set. Set those rules, we just have a couple of minutes left on Instagram so the feed might end. And we also about to finish here. So if it does end abruptly I really am grateful for your attendance My dears brothers and sisters in Islam, but I love you all for the sake of Allah. And please share this broadcast and join me every week in Sharla for these sessions.
Sara Marie comb, what is the ruling on meditation? We answered this last week. We answered this last week.
Okay, we answered this last week it's been repeated HIPAA, I answered the question in
in direct access part one so please go please review that in sha Allah.
Masha Allah, Allah bless you, Alicia. I should have Oh gee, are you are you joining in from South Africa? insha
Allah bless you. All right. In terms of Facebook
Rihanna juicer I think from Zimbabwe, Masha Allah The Hara, she says, Can we give sadaqa to non Muslims? Yes, you can give sadaqa to non Muslims, you will be rewarded. There's no problem that it's what zeca is okay? Is the right of Allah and the right of the recipients of the kite has rules and from the rules is that
it should be it's for the Muslims. Romana on Facebook is saying I have a question. Whenever I read the Quran, a question always comes to my mind that how did we get the orders of the sewers. As we know different verses came at different times who organized the orders of the sewers? There's two opinions of the scholars regarding this of the Romana.
Because as we know, the Quran wasn't in book form.
When the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam passed away, there's two views of the scholars Some say the the scholars all agree that the order of the words in an ayah is from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they all agree that the if the order of the ayat within a surah is from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But in terms of the suitors themselves, there's two views. Some scholars say that it's from the Etihad and
consideration of the Sahaba robiola, Germaine when the Quran was gathered at the time of Abu Bakar and then gathered at the time and then standardized at the time of man, I don't know one, and some say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
placed these orders before he passed away. I hope that answers the question. I mean when we look so panela at the connectivity of
The suitors to each other. One can't help but feel that it came from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best but nonetheless this difference of opinion has no bearing in terms of the preservation of the Quran. So there's no I just want to highlight that in case somebody
takes it as a means to try and become playful and create fitna for the Ummah, in terms of the preservation of the Quran.
Brothers and sisters in Islam, our time has come to an end

And ask Allah subhana wa tada to gather us again next week. Whilst we are in good health and good faith, to learn more from the inheritance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so that I can shed some light on some of your questions.
