Twitter as well. And on Instagram. I think everyone can hear me it looks like they can because I'm seeing all the waves Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala bless you all. All right, brothers and sisters in Islam. So Alhamdulillah we are in the first 10 days of the head Jen, we had a dedicated session last week, to this season of worship the first 10 days of Egypt, we had this dedicated lecture pertaining to the virtues of these days and the acts of worship that we need to strive to do during these days. And we also spoke at length about the sacrifice the old here, the Kobani the difference between the old here and the heady. And
we spoke also I also took some of your questions pertaining to
the oath here, which is from the greatest acts of worship during these days because of how diligent the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was with it of course and also because it's unique to the days of Hajj. Today's lecture brothers and sisters in Islam is dedicated to Ibrahim alayhis salaam and the days of hedge because really,
Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was an entire nation in terms of his faith.
It was at a level that was so beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of his character, it was at a level so beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of his adherence to the truth, it was at level so beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala described Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam as an entire oma as an entire nation. And
we have explanations from even our best of your level and Huma and his famous student. Mujahideen jabber Rahim Allah who highlight this, that really when Allah subhanho wa Taala describes him as an oma. He is describing him to the effect of being an entire nation by himself given Spamalot the levels of excellence that he reached.
In terms of his character, and before that, in terms of his faith, now brothers and sisters in Islam,
it's also important to highlight here what some of our scholars have said and they have said that from the blessings of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, from his blessings, yes, we have the Hajj no doubt this is from the blessings of Abraham and his family. We have the days of the hedger,
Allah subhanho wa Taala chose these days and no doubt these days have an association with the Hajj. So you can have these days attached to the excellence of Ibrahim Allah he set up, but a blessing that many of us might not be aware of. and a virtue from Ibraheem alehissalaam that we might not be aware of is the fact that Ibraheem alehissalaam or after Ibrahim alayhis, salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala did not destroy any nation
in completion. He didn't destroy any nation in competition.
Right? This is from the blessings of Ibrahim alayhis salam before Ibrahim alayhis. Salam up to the people of Luke and Luke
allihies salaam was from the family of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and a contemporary to Abraham and his Salah. Okay. However,
after Ibrahim and he said no nation was was destroyed, no punishment came down a pawn a nation in completion of the Ibraheem alehissalaam scholarship. This is from the Baraka from the blessings of the tauheed and the men and that our code of Ibrahim alayhis salam, yes, at his time that people have looked were destroyed in completion. But after him, no nation was destroyed in completion. So Subhana Allah What an amazing man he was, and in Sahih al Bukhari and Muslim in the authentic narrations describing the Israel and the mirage.
We are taught that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam met
Ibrahim alayhis salam, His Father
and the Father of the prophets. When he got to the seventh heaven, Ibraheem alehissalaam was set leaning against the caliber of the heavens, right the beetle Mahmoud and some heinola he boots the cowboy on earth and Allah gave him a police with the cover of the heavens to everyone making Salam on all our platforms Masha Allah and Periscope and Facebook and Twitter my shot let's have articolo alikum warahmatu Allahi Wa Barakatuh to everyone waving on Instagram widecombe Sarah hora de La Hoya, but I got to be honest, I know it's Allah bless you all. I do have a request for you all, if you could take a moment to hit the share button on YouTube, the like button and the share button
please, if you could just take a moment. Why because this will help
the broadcast reach more pages and inshallah more people can benefit. So if you could do that, please, even our brothers and sisters on Instagram, if you could please, you know, assist me please, by pushing out the message. I'll be entirely gratefulness. panhead, Allah bless you all. So this is a virtue from the virtues of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam that we should never ever forget the fact that Pamela after him, no nation was destroyed in incompletion. And if this is the case there, no doubt a message to the Christians and the Jews who claim right to Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, a message to them is why aren't you upon his way? Because his way was hanifa muslimah as Allah subhanho wa Taala
describes him in the Quran. He was upright and a submitted to the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And submitting to the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For the Jews, if they are upon the way of Ibrahim is to accept Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the final messenger, right? The upright way for the Christians, as they lay claim to Ibrahim alayhis salam is that if you follow Ibrahim alayhis salam, then you should
accept Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the final messenger as well. This is truly following.
Truly following Ibrahim alayhis salam, right it's no point link late claim to him, and then going against his way because no doubt his ways the way of success if Allah lifted punishment of entire nations off the face of this earth, because of Ibraheem alehissalaam they no doubt we should be entirely upon his way and his way it was one of the heat of belief in one of the last panel who etalon submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not a way of shirk and associating partners with a loss of Hannah, who were to add so as we enter these days of the hedger and we attach the idea of the Hajj to Ibraheem alehissalaam we should not forget brothers and sisters in Islam, that these
days of the hedge are also days to contemplate our to heat, our belief in the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. These are days to grow.
the worship of the heart, right because these acts of worship are closely or are closer in terms of their association and attachment to,
to our to heat and our event the concept of our code the concept of
Hope, we're Raja and hope. Right? And we spoke about door could facing one stress in Allah but taqwa taqwa, this concept of God, righteousness, and all these acts of worship of the heart, even closer in terms of attachment to to heat, these are days to contemplate over.
You know, these acts of worship and our proximity from them. Very important brothers and sisters in Islam. Because we know that the actions done during these days are the most beloved to Allah. There's no deeds more beloved to Allah than the deeds done during these days except the deed of going out in the path of Allah with your wealth and with your health and and your life and you come back with nothing meaning you don't come back.
Right? So these are the best days and we looking at doing the best of deeds and a lot of us we are handled we fasting we bring our Salah we reading the Quran,
but also brothers and sisters in Islam. And I would say even more importantly, let us use these days to worship Allah through contemplating the levels of the worship of our heart.
Right. How much patience Do we have with Allah we make we spoke to two lessons ago I believe about dad. Right? We spoke about this. So if we're speaking about his brothers and sisters in Islam,
how patient are we with Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of our do I
it's a matter of the heart.
Right? How quick are we to fall?
For how long?
And how difficult is it for us to fall for Halloween?
It's a matter of the heart This is taco taco prevents us from falling easily into Hara and helps us fall easily into Helen. However,
we are we with this you know the from the best of acts of of these days brothers and sisters in Islam is to ponder over these acts of worship of the heart. Right, because he Brahim is Ibrahim, because of the worship of his hearts panela. The level of Islam then well that's Islam is manifesting in your actions but the level of Eman the level of fear, the level of hope, the level of our code, the level of taqwa
the level of maraca
understanding that Ally's observant over what I do and what I say and what I believe in what I think and so on and so forth. Right. This is what made Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and entire nation it he reached levels with regards to
the worship of the heart that no one did, right? Yes, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was blessed with her and greater than him. But generally aside of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nobody did, and thus he was an entire nation. So as we celebrate the season of worship, we celebrate the days of the hedger and we try our best to do everything to to knock different doors of gender, right by worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala in different ways, because the words are unprecedented. Okay? As we do that, don't forget the worship of the heart. Don't forget to have that quiet moment with yourself and analyze the levels of your taqwa the levels of your hope, your fear
of Allah, your Raja, you're hoping Allah to work with the trust that you have in Allah, your patience with Allah subhanho wa Taala, your levels of taqwa, your proximities, to Haram in hell and the speed through which you get in and out of them. Right us these days, by doing so, you truly celebrating the life of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and celebrating in a in a true way, the spirit of these days. Right? And we know that Allah is going to bless us with aid at on the 10th of the head job. And Allah blesses us with read after his struggle,
right? struggle in our path to Allah. So Allah rewards us with read, right? As Allah subhanho wa Taala says when Latina Johanna rufina Lana hit the unknown super Lana, those who strive for our sake, to do that which pleases Allah. Allah says enter the unknown Superliner, right Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Allah subhanho wa Taala will help guide their way right, and allow will bless us with rewards and the day of release from the blessing so we have to have that struggle we need to ensure that we use these days in a way worthy of the day of of celebrating the day of eat. And as
someone famously said before, as Lisa read Lehman levy sell jaded, in the Mallory do Lehman half worldwide, right? It's a couplet from
couplets of poetry please say that you do lemon lebih Sal Jedediah in Mallory Dooley man ha follower EDA. All right? That is not the day when you wear new clothes.
Say it is the day of wearing new clothes. It is the day of celebration and yes, no doubt about it all this is read, but really brothers and sisters in Islam.
It is really a celebration of you reaching a level that you fear the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you hate displeasing Allah subhanho wa Taala reaching that level is really the day of each and every day you do that is a day of read. Every day you live in obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a day already. Right? So we need to have the you know, this this this depth in terms of our understanding brothers and sisters in Islam. With regards to the days of read with regards to the first 10 days of the hedger with regards to the seasons of worship, right. We need to have depth in terms of how we view the seasons. And these days, and these moments why so that we can be even more
capable and more diligent in our plan in terms of how we're going to make full use of these days. All right, so this is a reflection from Ibrahim alayhis salam. Now coming brothers and sisters in Islam to the days of Hajj.
We know that Ibrahim alayhis salam, he had
this recurring dream of him slaughtering his son.
For those asking,
if this will be recorded, it is being recorded in sha Allah as all our previous sessions where if you go to the YouTube, my YouTube page, or the Facebook page, if you scroll down, you will see our previous direct access lessons in sha Allah. So it's a live broadcast, but at the same time it is being recorded as well. We also handle with Allah bless you all. Okay.
Taco Allah says please repeat the couplet. All right.
Once a scholar said in a poetic way, Lisa, Larry do lumen lebih Sal Jedediah in Mallory deulim and half Allah wa EDA. Okay. All right.
If I miss any of your messages at this time, please don't be upset. Because obviously I'm giving you the presentation then after that inshallah we'll get to a bit later on. Okay. Maha inshallah we'll get to your question
before we end to the right Maha
be happy okay don't don't be upset my Allah bless you. I know my high is a young girl I believe I remember my Mashallah from England is have your questions very good Maha get to be the light at all right. So in terms of
the days of Hajj, we know that Ibrahim alayhi salam, he had these dreams, these recurring dreams of him sacrificing his son. Okay. And
when we when we look at some of the explanations of the scholars, especially with regards to the eighth, the ninth and the 10th of Dhul hijjah. We understand that these dreams came to Ibraheem alehissalaam during the days of the hitch during the days that we are in right now.
Okay. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tested Ibrahim Ali Salah.
And no doubt the greatest test
that a parent can go through is the test in relation to their child. And Ibraheem alehissalaam was tested twice with regards to his method and his setup. And remember, Ibraheem alehissalaam only received is made at E salam, according to some of the scholars of the seal. When Ibrahim Ali Salam was 90 years old, 90 years old, which means that he was making throughout for a long time for a child. And Allah gave it to him after a long time. He didn't lose hope in a line. This was amazing in terms of his how he always put a love fest, he brought him and he said, I've always put love first but then Allah gave him this child. And remember, Ibraheem alehissalaam didn't want a child
for the sake of, you know, the dunya the world, the life of this world, like many of us might want to travel because of the life of this world. And no doubt having a child is from from you know, the sweetness of life, especially if the child is obedient. But Ibrahim Alayhi Salam wanted a child because he felt that
there's no to heat on earth besides his toe heat. There's no belief in Allah besides his belief in Allah. everywhere he went, he went to the Levant to Sham he went to Egypt. Right before that he was in Babylon. Which is what
modded Iraq, right, he was in this region everywhere he was people were practicing the worshipping idols or worshipping the sun in the moon or the stars or worshipping people, rulers and kings and so on and so forth. So he felt that I need to have children and I will teach my children to heat and they will have children and they will teach the children to heat and like this we can bring to heat on to Earth. This was the reason why he wanted the child but Allah didn't give him the chance straightaway. Allah gave him the child after a long struggle was due and being patient. And then when Allah gave him the child, the law tested him because the scholars have to say when the child
was around two years old, Allah made him leave his child and hajer in the middle of nowhere, that middle of nowhere today is known as MK and this is from the blessings of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam as well. Brothers and sisters in Islam.
Really, MCI is Mecca filled with people all right, I know we see the pictures now and it's very empty. Especially during the days of Hajj we know how packed Makkah is. During the days of Ramadan. We know how packed Mecca is but you know 2020 and the year of COVID-19, the Coronavirus, the new Coronavirus, so Han Allah, Allah has given us moments to reflect. But the law firm of maca is that it's packed with believers. And this is from the bar coffee Brahim, who lived at a time where believers were hard to find. So Pamela, right. So brothers and sisters in Islam.
Allah tested him when the child was about two years old to take the child and his mother to the middle of nowhere. That was a test. We all know how parents want to grow up every day with the children. Allah separated them. Why? Because Ibrahim always put a lot first even with his father, he put a lot first. Now he got a son, are you going to put your son first? Are you going to put a lovefest? That is the question. Are you going to put a love first Are you going to put your your son first? And Ibraheem alehissalaam he proved he places Allah subhanho wa Taala first by taking his child and his wife, the child's mother and leaving them in the middle of nowhere a long way away
from where he was settled then in Palestine
right so he was settled then in Palestine. And you know, you can imagine go to the map and think of Palestine and think of MCC, and see the distance and there was no planes there was no cars, then
happened based on foot or based on a camel riding animal. And you riding through the desert through the heat, no roads, right? You're looking for water sources along your way, studying easy traveled brothers and sisters in Islam. But here we see so Pamela, how
Ibraheem alehissalaam put a love fest in front of his wife in front of the mother of his child in front of his child and took them. But then when he smiled, as some of the squatters of tafsir say was around, you know, 12 or 13 or 14
during the days of the sheikh
Ibrahim Alayhi, salaam start seeing this dream, that he's sacrificing the sun for the sake of Allah.
Now at first, he didn't pay too much attention to it.
on the eighth of the ledger, which is known as yom,
Yom taraweeh, the day of Korea now the third we are in the Arabic language has a meaning related to water because it is said that the Arabs would gather their water on that day they would make their Campbells drink water to their full right because there's no guarantee of water in Mena and out of and was dead. So they would make the Campbells drink to their food. And they would also feel the the water sacs made out of leather and different material. They would fill those water sacks to use as we do and use for cooking and use for drinking.
Right. So this concept of since Korea has a meaning related to water, they say the eighth of the hedger is known as your metalia. Because that was the day when the hood judge prepared themselves for the hedge and got their camels quenched and they gathered the water
but also teruya comes from the terminal one euro V and row one euro we carries the meaning of contemplation when you play something back over and over again.
Right. So if we relate the eight of the hedger to Rahim, Allah, his Salah, we would say that the eight of the hedger is the day when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam started contemplating this dream that he had, thinking about the dream
you know, slaughtering myself
slaughtering my son slaughtering my son What is this dream about? And then he realized
on the ninth of the hedger
yo Mara is the ninth out of a means to know out of a means to know. They say the name of the head j is called yamaraja. for one of two reasons. One is because what I'm telling you, Abraham and he said, I'm new on this day, that Allah is telling him to sacrifice his son for the sake of Allah.
Another reason why it's called you out of it, he said that when you breathe Allah, he said, I took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and taught him the Hajj sites.
When they got to Mena, he would tell him about Mena, then he will say, I draft I do you know, have you understood Is it is it understood, that he would take you to a minute or two out of out of, out of from out of out of, do you understand, do you know, is it understood, then he would take him to Mr. lever are asked, Have you understood? Do you understand? So, as you see out of that, and arafa has the same letters. So, they say your MANOVA is known as the day of arafah because it's the day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, was taught all, you know, all the sights of Hajj, but also because Abraham as he said, I'm new on the ninth of the hijab.
He knew on the ninth of the hedger that his dream in his dream, his dream is from Allah and Allah is telling him to sacrifice his son.
also, what's amazing is Ibraheem alehissalaam he prepared his son to receive this instruction, he didn't just go to his son and laid on him, he prepared his son falam, Bella Hama, who say, Fatima Bella, who say is when Ibrahim is married, and he said I'm reached the age, right. And this age could mean the age of puberty.
you can deduce from this when he Brahim reached a stage of being ready to receive this instruction from his father of what Allah told him to do. Because this is not easy. So easy for any father, think about it. I don't know how many parents we have on call. But think about it. Brothers and sisters in Islam, it's not easy to go and tell your father
sorry for a father to tell his son
that, you know, I have to, I have to sacrifice. So Allah, Allah save us. It's not easy, right? So
Abraham, and he said, I'm prepared is made AlLahi Salah to receive this news and he gets to a stage when he's ready to receive the news. And when he gets to the stage when he's ready to receive the news. Ibraheem alehissalaam tells me I boulais Oh, my dear son, in the auto film me and me as a bad joke I see in my dream, in my dreams, in my sleep, that I am sacrificing you.
Please tell me what you think. Basically?
What is your view on this?
It doesn't matter what his view is. But look, so Pamela, the parenting ability of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and this is a story for another day. But also we learned from this that during the days of the head job, we should contemplate how to be better parents. It's important brothers and sisters in Islam. Right? Remember, we said contemplate the worship of the heart also contemplate how to be a better parent how to bring your children closer to Allah during these days. So that you you you are a parent during the best days of the year. So panela think about this. And we all trying to do deeds. Right? What about the deeds related to raising your children?
We know how much bill how beloved they are to Allah, and how mighty the rewards are. If this is the case, if this is the case, then imagine doing those deeds during these days.
So I urge my mothers and fathers on call to make a plan.
Right? To be an even better parent to your children and start during these days because the reward is great. Okay, and we see Abraham and he said I'm being a parent to his son. He's telling his son Tell me what do you think of this? And he senses Yeah, but he Oh my dear father, if I were to
do what Allah has commanded you to do,
so that you do need insha Allah with us I believe in God Willing you find me from the patient once.
And this is the lesson for the children.
During these days of the hijab, we know being a good child is beloved to Allah. Imagine how beloved to Allah it is to be a good child during
these days of the future. Especially
so so panela Look how many lessons we learn by cross linking the days of Hajj and the life of Ibrahim Allah His Salah.
Imagine that brothers and sisters in Islam.
So just from this portion, we learned how important it is to be a great parent, especially during these days in a great child, especially during these days.
so we have your mom out of your metiria and you're modifying I've explained the relevance of the names of these days to the activities of the day. The 10th of the idea is young a nap Yeoman, how is the day of sacrifice and for the Hajaj, they sacrifice the Heidi, the sacrifice of Hajj, and for those who are not in hajj, the sacrifice the other here? And we spoke about the other day last week, right? The poor Benny, we spoke about it last week. But we also said last week that this Qurbani this up here goes back to Ibrahim alayhis salam because he also put the knife to the neck of his son. On the 10th of the of the head, you're gonna have to sacrifice but as we know, brothers and
sisters in Islam, the knife didn't cut.
The knife didn't cut
just like when he brought him was small.
Right? And he was thrown into the fire the fire didn't burn him.
Right? When he the knife knife was sharp, but when he tried to cut it didn't cut. Why? Because the knife doesn't cut except with the permission of Allah. The fire doesn't burn except with the permission of Allah, this is the reality.
All right. So
again, during the days of the job, we learn how to put our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala
we learned this brothers and sisters in Islam.
putting our trust in Allah is a great act of worship. Imagine doing it during the best days of the year, the days of the
phenomenal, right? phenomenal. So we should think about this how many times we put our trust in Allah.
Nothing can benefit us or harm us except with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Ibrahim tried but it didn't work.
And he reached a rank with a lot because he tried Allah said
falam Aslam, our tele Julio jabeen. When he when they both submitted to Allah and His marine was placed in the position to be sacrificed. Allah subhanho wa Taala called out to him and said, Yeah, Ibrahim said Dr. Roja Oh Ibrahim the dream that you saw, you've done justice to it. You have fulfilled the mandate of the dream.
Well, for the now who believe in Him, Allah subhanho wa Taala saved his mind and gave Ibrahim A RAM, a ram
to slaughter and he slaughtered the RAM and that is taqwa. That is the tough one. We spoke about brothers and sisters in Islam, that you do something because Allah told you to do it. It's not the blood or the meat that reaches Allah. It's your taqwa that you did it because Allah told you to do it.
So Han Allah
Subhana Allah. So these are the days of Hajj and the days of the hedger
you know, the blessedness of understanding these days and this season,
along with the life of Ibrahim it, Sarah, this is what I wanted to present to everyone here, that when we go through these days and celebrate these days, we don't forget to Pamela, the
life of Ibrahim alayhis salaam and his family.
Right That was full of depth, a life full of depth panela a life full of depth, so much for us to benefit from.
Right? And no doubt our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was amazing, because his great, great, great grandfather was also amazing. Ibraheem alehissalaam and as I said, Ibrahim alayhis salam is known as the father of the prophets. And he's known as the father of the prophets, because every prophet of the Ibraheem alehissalaam is from the children of Ibrahim and he said,
every prophet after Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam,
goes back to Ibraheem alehissalaam via his hack, and he said,
every prophet, except Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam masala her it was sort of it goes back to Abraham and his Salaam, via his Merida and he set up because Ibrahim Alayhi Salam had two children, his marine first and his half second, right and the child that was all it was was tested with the slaughter was his marine. And he said, Okay,
so these two children had children, all
of the profits.
his hack, and it's my Edo is Milan is hot. They are from the children of his hack,
which makes Ibraheem alehissalaam the grandfather, except Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He's from the children of Israel, which makes Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam, his grandfather as well, and that is why Ibraheem alehissalaam is known as a
Yanni, Abul ambia, the father of the Gambia, the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this brings us brothers and sisters in Islam to the end of this presentation that we like to have in our direct access sessions together. And I pray that Allah Subhana who Allah blesses everything that you've heard, except from me, except from you, and makes everything that you've heard, a means for you to have an even greater 10 days of the head jet to go to go into the remaining days with an even stronger approach with the lake Tana. And with that, I want to move our discussion forward to the q&a because we had questions from last week that we couldn't answer and we said we will answer them
this week. Insha Allah, so let's take them very quickly. We have a question from Birmingham which says the the alpha dra How many times do you need to read this? Is there a specific number?
No, you can make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala as many times that you want I suppose you asking about the do I love mine? Yes, I do color for whatever.
Or any similar to our you can make you can ask Allah subhanho wa Taala any amount of times that you want. But if you're talking about the car of the morning and the evening and do as such as Ruby Kadima, Tila hytera, maximian Sharma, hollub and Bismillah Hila de la boum asmi shameful all the wifey sama was Samuel a name. Then the Sunnah is to read these two as three times in the morning and three times in the evening. Three times in the morning means after fudger begins and three times in the evening means after a song begins. Okay.
Another question from Colombo, Sri Lanka, if a person was married to someone,
just one second, I'm going to read the sign and leave because it's a sensitive question.
inshallah, we'll take this question offline. It's quite a sensitive one.
May Allah make everything easy? But we have another question from Halifax
in the UK smilla rahmanir rahim Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Sajid assister told me she visited a man who checked her pulse and told her she had 90% acidity levels in her body. She said that he studied this via this link. Okay, I can't check the link right now.
inshallah after I can check it, but generally brothers and sisters in Islam
you know, if something in matters pertaining to medicine, for example, seems far fetched and beyond common sense, then you should put your trust in these things. When it comes to
matters outside of the Quran and the Sunnah, they should be proven in a way that makes sense to us and not in a in a way that is doubtful. So, you should stay away from people who come to you with
you know, medical practices that flout the norms of common sense by Marwa from Pakistan.
By this email also see this message here
all right, this is a sensitive question inshallah I will have to answer it privately My apologies.
We have a question from a boo Xia from Birmingham he says in the Hanafi madhhab seven people can share into a cow
whereas in the humble madam seven families can share into a cow. We live in an almost joint family structure, I follow the humble mishap
whereas my siblings follow the Hanafi madhhab.
When the time comes for the sacrifice, my brother sends the money back home
for two cows to be purchased to cover 14 family members then we split the cost equally amongst us four brothers.
Okay, number one to avoid clashing on the differences between the two motherhood on this matter and breaking the ties of kinship. Is it permissible for me to continue as described above, and is my qurani my Qurbani my sacrifice valid if done in this way, number two
If provided is given, as described above, does my monetary contribution count? But does it include my wife and children as well?
What should my intention be when I give the money away? All right, this is a this is a book Really? Yeah, Basia.
Alright, so what you've described is correct. According to the Hamburg, he must have a person sacrifices one animal on behalf of themselves and their family, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sacrificed one animal on behalf of him and his family. So he included them in his intention. The Hanafi madhhab views,
the old hair as well as something that has to be done. And as such, it stipulates one sacrifice per person. So if a person is married, and they have three kids, then you need five goats or five sheep. Or if you have a cow, then a cow or a camel covers seven people in the Hanafi method, but seven families no doubt in the other meta app. So in this particular circumstance, obviously, your question is not entirely clear, because I don't know how many people in your family when you say you are using two goats for 14 family members are these 14 family members do they constitute you your brother's the wife and the children all of his altogether 14. And thus, you you know, you haven't
also explained to me how many people you have in your family. But in general, the matter is based on what you intend, if you intend, if, for example, you have three shares out of the cow, and you intend one share to be a sacrifice for you and your family, and another two shares to be a general sadaqa This is what it will be. If you intend for the sacrifice to be for you, and a sacrifice to be for your wife and sacrifice to be for your older son, then that's how it will be but in terms of sacrificing on behalf of other people who are older who have reached the age of puberty, then it's important that you get the UD you let them know. So they make the intention as well. So if you are
settling, you want to sacrifice a dedicated portion, or intent the dedicated portion for your wife, and you're going to pay for it, you should inform her you should inform her because remember in the hamper the method as well. If she makes the intention of a specific animal being sacrificed for her and someone else is paying on her behalf, then the rule of not cutting hair and nails applies to her as well. But in any case for it to be counted as an official sacrifice from her for her and someone else is paying for her then she needs to have the intention. So anyone else who you giving a specific share to they need to be told you need to tell them that this is what you want to do. So
they make the intention because in the mind Malou beneath actions are judged by intentions. So basically, it's not a big meta abbazia basically it will be how you intent.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.
Now, and obviously if you intend to one share to be for you and your family, this is also enough you based on the hambly method as you are somebody, you're here will be valid and complete. All right. There's another question from a boozier as well. The Hadid says washing the right side of the body when doing wholesale and then the left side is it permissible to wash the right side from the neck to the waist and then the same for the left. And then finally wash the follow the sooner the one that told us right without stipulating. So wash the right side and then wash the left side. This is the sun obviously if you don't do it, it doesn't mean your hosel is incorrect. But we should follow
the sooner to the best of our ability. Okay, follow the sooner to the best of our ability. So in this particular circumstance,
we say the son is the son of the prophets of Allah it was just washed right before the left. So wash the right before the left Don't complicate it. When naming one's child is the father's first name and surname. Or if the father's first name and surname has no real meaning, then is it permissible to give the child a more meaningful Islamic center?
know if the surname represents the lineage of the Father, it can't be changed. But if the surname and we answered this in our first direct access, remember similar question, we said that, if the surname
is related to the father's lineage,
then you cannot change that name.
However, if the surname is a general family name with no association to the lineage of the Father,
Then you can change that name,
but you change it for a name. That is part of the lineage don't change it for a name that will cause the lineage to be lost. Remember, Islam is all about preservation of your honor. And your honor in your lineage being known
Allah subhanho wa Taala is gonna call you out on the day of karma, based on your attribution to your father. Okay, so if you have a surname that
is not from the lineage of the Father, you can change it, but you can only change it for a name that is from the lineage. So that later on that lineage isn't lost. So you, you take the next. So for example, if your name is Mohammed, and your father's name is Yusuf, and your grandfather's name is Maha is Abdullah. Right, so then you'd be Mohammed Yusuf Abdullah. Okay, but let's say that you're sending is random.
Right? It's random. It's got nothing to do with your lineage, like Patel, or like chaudry. For example, when we look about South Asia,
or the Indian subcontinent rather,
then here, you can drop the choudry, you can drop the bottle if it doesn't have any association with your lineage, but what do you place as a surname? Now? What do you place, you place a name from the names of your grandfather, so the next grandfather, that's the most appropriate name to put all right, such that it's protected, because remember, when you know five generations down the line, six generations down the line, these things will be taken into consideration. So you don't want to act in a way that will cause the lineage to be lost for the generations to come after. So this is why I highlight this, the lineage is important. But if the name is just a general family name with no no
association to the lineage, and it has a poor meaning, then yes, you can change it as for the Father's name, no, the Father's name can be changed even if the Father's name has a poor meaning. can't change it. Right? So if if his name is Mohammed, son of so and so and the meaning is not good. That name stays because he's the son of that person.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.
All right, let's look at some of the questions that have come in.
All right, ma had a question I promise to answer a question let's go back to my house question.
My ha sees
All right, let me just go all the way to the beginning.
Because so I don't miss anything.
All right, thought head on. my boob is saying can you please have a show with Abdullah Ahmed idea? Allah bless you inshallah. On Monday, we starting the young learners hub for three days on Monday inshallah. Okay, Mahara.
This is posterous question.
All right, then we have
Shamim after from High Wycombe, Santa Monica bhakti. Shamim, we have a question here from Muhammad. Also about the inlanders of Muhammad in sha Allah insha Allah Monday, Monday 2pm bt later Allah, you will, you will hear Abdullah Ahmed and hydrangea Allah
what are the benefits of fasting the day of our offer by here is asking what are the benefits of fasting? What are the benefits of fasting the day of our offer, the benefits of fasting the day of our offer?
The benefits of fasting the day of arafa is that Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive two years worth of sins of minuses, two years worth of minuses. That is from the benefits of fasting yamaraja as the prophets of Allah Allah he was selling towards us, okay.
Maha says were the people of the NGO meaning the Christians that believe there is a reason like Muslims, but they live before Mohammed. Yes, those who lived before Mohammed and believed in Isa and they passed away upon the way of Isa Allah He said them without associating partners with the loss of Anahata either the Muslims and they will be in gender. Same thing with the followers of Musashi Salah, those who followed Musa alayhis salam before Isa, and the pathway before Isa and the pathway upon the way or the way of
the way of Musa alayhis salam, they were Muslims as well. And they will be in general share, is it compulsory to fast? The 10 days of the hijab? No, it's not compulsory. Amar it's not compulsory to fast the first 10 days but it's recommended. It's recommended to fast the first nine days not the first 10 days because the 10th day is the day of Read, Write read, so you can't force them to do it. So we say the first nine days okay.
RF says May Allah bless you may Allah bless you too.
Which is the authentic hadith regarding Zamzam water. Was it due to his married rubbing his feet, or the angel in Sahih al Bukhari
To the best of my memory, or Sahih Muslim you know, in one of the two books this is mentioned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions the story of hajer and is married. And it's mentioned that the angel was tapping the ground either with his heel or with his wink. And the narrator was unsure the narrator for God, whether it was with his heel, or whether meaning the angels heel, or whether it was with the angels wink. So it was the angel that tapped the ground, not the heel of his Mary that caused this to happen.
By if what about the slaughter of the sheep? We answered this question.
Was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told to do 500 salah and moose I said it's too much. Now there's a narration that says he was told to do 5050 and moose I said it would be too much and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam requested a decrease and Allah decreased it up to five but with the reward of 55 with the reward of 55 with the reward of 50 for every Salah you get 10 rewards. Okay.
On Instagram we have many questions as well sorry if I'm going to cover the camera I don't mean that but I have the Instagram broadcast feed up here.
Santa Monica, thank you everyone. Look, it's a long chat. So if I've, if I've missed your question above, please paste it again. Okay. If I've missed your question above please paste it again.
I have the Instagram feed slightly above as you can see, I look up sometimes it's because it's
someone says what time do I break my fast there is a siren blown in our locality for breaking fast but such was not the case of the prophets of Allah it was should follow. Break your fast when mercury kicks in. Generally, we know mercury has begun when the moon makes the event. If you live in a place where they where they have the event and the siren this is fine as long as he for you, you understand that the day has ended? And you have no reason to doubt the event or doubt. The siren. If you doubt that no doubt the siren then use your own system of understanding sunset. Look online when sunset is in your locality and use your own watch. There's no problem.
Sorry about that. I'm covering the camera in front of me Please forgive me.
Can I slaughter for my mother who passed away 10 months before? Yes, you can. You can. But should you make it a habit. Don't make it a habit where people believe that this is from the sun to slaughter for individual people who've passed away, but to give sadaqa on behalf of your mother This is virtuous. And if you did on behalf of your mother, this is fine. And Allah subhanho wa Taala have mercy upon your mother
is Kobani valid if Arteta is not done? Yes, your Kobani is valid if you update by is not done. And you should get you update by then, as well. At the closest possible time, APA is different to here.
So your old here is valid, no doubt about it. But you should also get your artista done. All right. Let me go on to Facebook quickly. Our brothers and sisters on Facebook are saying why am I not answering the questions? All right, we have five minutes left. So we'll just stick to Facebook very quickly.
I have a question. Can you father pay for your sacrifice? Yes, the father can pay for the sacrifice of his children. Like we said, or he humbly matter. He can even include the rest of his family in his sacrifice. But remember, he should if he's doing individual sacrifices for other people, he should tell them so they can have an intention. As we discussed.
I mean your object color for your data.
Will you be responding to last week's questions? Yes, I did a boozy yet. I did respond to those questions.
These questions Pamela.
Welcome to our listeners from LD herbs from all the different islands. Well bless you all.
Thank you, sister, for your wonderful insights.
As always, Mashallah you always write very deep messages just like hello Heron. How does one try to move on mistakes that were made in the past especially since others are trying to share those mistakes and judge you based on those? Along with Stan, obviously, first and foremost, my dear brother in Islam, you need to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala for your mistake. If it was a major sin, you need to seek tober for that mistake
Have an intention not to make that mistake again, remove the triggers that lead you to that mistake. Right? And you carry on with your life. As for other people, you shouldn't allow your success to be governed by what other people do. Other people will be held accountable Allah subhanho wa Taala those who who spread the mistakes of other people we know that there will be held accountable by Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, right? We know this. Allah subhanho wa Taala hides our mistakes, those who spread our mistakes, they will be exposed as well. So don't worry about them. And don't worry about how people judge you worry about how Allah judges you. Yes, it's going
to be it's going to be difficult, but you have to be patient. And very soon, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take you out of this difficulty. Okay.
Ibrahim, Allah Wa Alaikum Salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakatu, which is I could love him.
Someone's asking for a Syrah book. There's many Sierra books out there, if you visit darussalam or the iph bookstores, you will find many good zero books by different authors. There's a famous one called the seals nectar. This is a very good book to be, you know to have. It's not too long, but it's not too detailed. And it's also not too brief. This is a good one to have. But if you want something further, then you can look at some of the works by the Syrah by chef Celebi. Chef Celebi has
a bigger discussion of the Sierra with good detail. So you can inshallah find more about the Sierra and the events in chronological order over there bit later on. If someone is not eligible to play soccer, are the obligated to pay for here No, here is for the one who can sacrifice or here is for the one who can sacrifice Okay, if you can afford it, then you can do it. If you can't afford it, then it's not compulsory upon you. And as I said it's compulsory in the in the Hanafi madhhab. But because the majority of the scholars of Islam, it is a highly recommended
sooner, a highly recommended sooner if you have the financial means you should do it. If it's cheaper elsewhere, you can get it done elsewhere. I hope that helps Zoey with your question.
So don't worry Baby Steps burning don't burn out everything to the best of your ability. Someone says can two brothers sacrifice on behalf of their mother individual shares. Yes they can. They can. It's from them being dutiful to their mother and giving sadaqa on the mother's behalf. But as I said they shouldn't do it believing that this is something that has to be done.
Can I give some money to my mate? Yes, you can give sadaqa money to you anonymously mate. It's only zeca that has to be for Muslims predominantly with some few exceptions. But sadaqa can be given to your numbers to mate. All right, this last question will take in Sharla on Instagram, if it cuts off, please forgive me because there's a one hour limit but we will take the last question and end in sha Allah. The last question states
is fasting in the first 10 of the hijjah
better than fasting in Ramadan? Because the Hadith says that the actions during these days are better than the actions done outside of these days. Barack Hello feet very good question. So very good question in answer to your question. No. The the fast of Ramadan is perhaps the one act that is better than any act that is done during these days. Why? Because fasting the month of Ramadan is compulsory and a compulsory Act has greater rewards than a voluntary act.
Right remember this.
So as with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying there's no deeds he means generally, he means generally, there is no deeds, but they can be an exception such as this. This exception we can say all the deeds done during the first 10 days of the hedger are far superior than the deeds done during any other time of the year. Besides the fast of Ramadan, the fast of Ramadan is far superior than any fast done during any other day and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. And this is true if you put the different sources together the different evidences together the different principles of Islamic jurisprudence together. This is what
comes out as being most correct to all the principles that we have in that there's no contradiction. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, There's no deeds better he means in general, doesn't mean in absolution. And he's not saying meaning he's not saying there's absolutely no deeds that are better. He's saying in general, there's no deeds done during these days which are which are more beloved to Allah than the deeds done.
During these days, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be saying in general, the deeds done during these days are better than deeds done outside of these days. But there's an exception that that exception is fasting
The day of Ramadan that is better. Finally did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fast all the nine days If not, is doing so bitter. We don't know if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fasted on nine days. But we know that he told us to fast out of it. And if the you know, not knowing that he did it doesn't mean that he didn't do it. And not knowing that he did. It doesn't mean doing it is a bit there, because we know that he generally told us to try our best during these days and he generally told us that fasting is from the most beloved actions to Allah subhanho wa Taala All right, we're going to lose our our viewers on Instagram a Somali C'mon with Allahu Barakatuh to our
viewers there. And this brings us to the end of today's
direct access brothers and sisters in Islam. And everything correct said is from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and he is perfect. And any mistakes are from myself and she upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and as I announced we're going to have the young learners hub for your children between the ages of six and 12 on my YouTube channel on my YouTube channel starting on Monday at 2pm maka time right so please let your children know so they join in insha Allah and ask Allah subhana wa tada to accept our deeds of the days that have gone by of, of the hedger and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to inspire us
so that we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala even more diligently in the days that remain and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our past and inspire our future and to shower upon us the greatest rewards on the day of read I mean your umbrella mean and also ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to lift off us all difficulties.
