Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala
Singapore that is only
That is one
warning normally northern Manitoba she'll probably along with another
man or Venus.
The chapter of asceticism and piety and non management of a Shia or the loved one Homer said, I've heard a lot of messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, no a man pointed with his two fingers to his ears, what is lawful is clear, and what is lawful is clear, but between them are certain doubtful matters, which many people do not know. And they'll humble in the middle who want to sign off on a cell phone. When I'm doing my show, Liam fusina, Maria, Marina bnpb learn Palermo develop, or movement,
or shadow Anna, Mohammed. And
then, number my bad today, Friday, the
13th, the 14th on the line 1438. Commence with the 11th lesson of balumama. Yesterday, we started the chapter of Zurich and ally, bank, but because this, I think that we're going to cover this first heavy is a very long, heavy, we delayed the the explanation until today and absorb it and why are very important concepts in Islam and from the character of a Muslim is that you don't attach yourself to something that is not permanent. In other words, you don't attach yourself to temporary pleasures to doing it. And it doesn't mean that you can't take your share of the dunya it means that you should not become attached to it such that it takes you away from the remembrance of Allah
subhana wa Tada. So these two terms that are used by the prophet alayhi salatu salam and some of the texts, and become famous on the terms of the salience of Islam as zero and
zero is to leave off anything that does not benefit you in the hereafter.
anything of this dunya that is in excess, that is extra sack going to benefit you in your era. Now, if a person works and almost blesses them and their business or whatever it is that they are doing, blesses them to have more than they need.
And they keep
they preserve that extra wealth that they have for their family. There's no harm in that, especially if there's a good intention behind many of you know, the honeymoon side, we're gonna be on costs,
probably alongside anger when he went to the Prophet sallahu Sinead, and he thought that he was dying.
He told the Prophet sallallahu it was something I was to give away all of my wealth.
Told him No, you can't. And he said half of my wealth the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said no. So he said, a third of my wealth, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said through for students who believe a third and even a third is a lot to give away for you to leave your family with that which will keep them from getting cancer phone and NASA and even going out and putting their hands out begging people. It's better for you than to give away your wealth.
So this study shows that there's nothing wrong with the person who has surplus in fact
The whole idea of Zakat in this manner is what? It's not that you're giving. This is a misconception because in other religions, they have the concept of time
just to give away 10% of your earnings.
In Islam, we don't give away any percentage of our earnings, we give away a percentage of our surplus well, so the whole concept of the cat is that they're going to be Muslims who have surplus.
And the reality is, is that if the Muslims who had surplus
pay 2.5% of that, give it away to the needy and the poor, and those eight categories mentioned, that sort of the Toba, that we honestly would not have people who are in dire need, because they would be taken care of buy that small percentage of surplus value. Unlike certain societies, where the rich get all types of tax breaks, and are able to pay people more allowing them to search for loopholes, we don't have this concept of 2.5% of whatever your surplus wealth you have. So if a person
makes or has a, an income in a particular year of 10 million, and they've spent 1 million of them,
then they're going to pay 2.5% of the 9 million that remains surplus.
The point here is that
and And would it be translated as asceticism
which is to leave all of the dunya debt which does not benefit you at the concept of wind, which is to refrain from everything that is going to harm you and your hair after
that this does not require us to be poor.
In other words, this is the term
and the term poverty are not synonymous. We just want to be clear on that. Man, as was mentioned yesterday, it is more the idea that you don't allow your wealth to control you,
that you control your wealth, that you don't allow your riches to spoil your insects, that you don't allow your wealth to take over your heart, but that you keep your wealth in your hands.
So this has been the heartbeat of a normal human machine.
Or the love of the child and
his father, his mother were both companions. Nelson Mandela, we pleased with all of them. He said that he heard the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam say that Hillel is clear. And her arm is clear. We did talk about this yesterday. But for the sake of those who were not here, I'll briefly repeat some of the things that were mentioned yesterday I will allow is clear faith in Islam and Islam there are certain things that all Muslims so our collab there's no difference of opinion amongst Muslims about whether it's Hello, is it allowed to drink water?
Yeah, right now.
It wasn't it wasn't a trick question. Yes, it's allowed to drink water. Do we have restrictions on when we can do certain things but drinking was how
are you buying and selling,
buying and selling?
So how do we know that these things don't have
to be buying and selling and drinking.
She usually had six or seven or seven terms and how we use
them in law. Mills.
Buying and selling
is is something that everybody has done on the beginning of time. And there has been an industry that is home to my wife can show that it is impermissible. So something they call it miss Sullivan and that is something like that. The legislation has talked about it so anything that is not
Ed but Danny the food that you eat, whatever it is that you're drinking, the clothes that you wear, they are all permissible they are all halau unless we have something from the legislation of Assam that clearly shows that it is not allowed. Notice how we know something is allowed either but it hasn't been spoken about at all and aside from the ritual acts of worship, but we have a clear text set filter set its color
in layer two cm
has been made halau for you the nights that you are
passing on either nights of Ramadan for you to approach your wives.
And there are other things that are clearly harmed
the meat of the people have to cook the meat of the evil of the book. Hello.
Hello, have you noticed?
Sir, what? What
is the root of the people of the work is allowed for you. So these are things that we know that
don't take this unrestricted. If a Christian is eating pork, and they say here, this is one of my food here, you can have some No, it's not cut out for us, because we have other texts that clearly show that that is not permissible, right?
There are things that are clearly haram and is saying like what?
killing someone by killing someone, that's clearly how he went for the max.
interest, a hell alone bear the lead. The next part of that is why are we bad, and he may be bad, but we've actually taken certain hobbies, taking certain properties, in this in this book,
the comprehensive book from balumama, who take it, where the property stops, how long will it last me around for you such but these things are clearly
like, then no man says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said will be no amount.
But between the highlands
there are things that are not clearly halau or there are gray areas.
this is the for the most part is relative meaning is relative to this person, or that person, for them is a gray area for somebody else's clearly hell out on clearly Come on.
But sometimes, there are gray areas for the Muslims as a whole.
cigarettes were first introduced,
to the Muslim world,
and by the way, my center for Islam assume that Tanzania follow
me knows that he can be whoever introduces a
evil practice, an evil practice, that he will have the the sin of that practice of introducing that right in the center of everyone who does it, Daddy until the day of judgment, nothing will be decreased from any of their sins. And the opposite is also true. Whoever introduces a good practice, and he will have to reward for introducing that practice and all of those files into the data file without anything being decreased and everyone will ever introduce smoking to the Muslim world. When it was first introduced. If you read the metalla. From the beginning it from one cigarettes to person introduced the majority of the vanilla
said that it was my guru.
He didn't say that it was hot. I said that it was my group.
And the reason the reason why is because something about it didn't feel right. Number one.
It had an offensive odor. Still does. Number two. So that was enough to take you away from just saying no back down. Because the base rule is that anything is permissible unless there is some evidence that indicates it's in permissibility. Right when it comes to not ritual, any acts.
here when we say evidence, we're not talking about them, there has to be a specific idea or a specific ad, you're not gonna find there weren't cigarettes at the time of the Prophet is not the same. So nobody can come and say, You own the property. They saw you Sam said smoking cigarettes or cigars is hot because we that didn't exist. At the time of the Prophet. It is such a thing. But we do have principles in Islam. And we have what we would call general evidence that shows its permissibility or impermissibility. So here, if we look at cigarettes, they were saying at that time, that it was a group that is something that is discouraged that people shouldn't do it, but
there's no sin if someone smokes. That was until the medical reports started coming out. And
and it became
Clear that cigarettes cause lung cancer, that it could eventually lead to someone's demise, that it doesn't have benefit to it. So it also comes under the prohibition of wasting one's wealth, which allows parents either despises for us so we start well. So then you find now like nowadays that the majority of the showers
and all of the ones that are rescued that I'm aware of say that smoking is hot.
See, this token is hot when it first came on the scene, we can consider that to be from the Mississippi hands wasn't really clear, what was going on with this is something new, hasn't been studied thoroughly. And that is a lot of from. And this is something that you should be aware of with business practices, a lot of the new things that have come out
new types of doing business, some types of buying and selling.
Some of it is not really clear at the beginning, it takes a year or two for there to be a proper study from those scholars. Whether those be financial economic solid scholars are the same them collaborating to really look at this and see what this is saying and tail. So if a person is not clear on that, that it becomes from the shoe hat for the Mousavi hats from the user, we have those doubtful matters, the gray areas, for a lot of times, a lot of times what we consider to be gray areas. Don't go back to two things. And go back to two things. Does anybody remember from yesterday?
The one is that there is what appears to be a contradiction in the evidence.
So a person doesn't know what should they do. The Prophet is
prohibited companions from drinking while standing. In fact, in some narrations, he said, If you do so, then regurgitate and that seems like it's something impermissible? Why would the process undertaken in regards to that then we have other ID, where the profit is SelectUSA lab was seen standing up and drinking.
So how do we reconcile between the two so now, standing up and drinking for some people, becomes from the rooster, the hair from the cow for men, for those who have knowledge of the name and who study, then it becomes clear to them that the prohibition of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was not a prohibition of strict of biani something being strictly forbidden or didn't indicate that it is haram, but rather it is something that is
that is discouraged. Or what you would say is the last one Ola 90 something that a person should I do to do what's better for them to do the opposite of that thing?
Another example we gave yesterday was the lady about to hear to message you. When you come into the message from Sally Some said don't sit down and write to write guys. Then we have other I think what a prophet sallallahu Sallam said, don't pray after fighting until the sun comes up. don't pray up the acid until sunset. So what are you doing? Because eventually, we come into the mess after fracture, for example. So these become for some people like like Buscemi hands, the processor is something that I don't know, one that
many people don't know about them. Not all people, but some people know.
That's what appears to be a contradiction and evidence. The other reason is what?
That something becomes a new study from the gray areas. So of course,
I understand that. I'll get to that. But
before that is the is where there is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars. So for the laypeople, sometimes this can be done something for them that is confusing, or from the gray areas. Should I shorten I'm going somewhere for a week. Should I shorten my prayers or not? Can I break my fast and Ramadan and try for a week somewhere that I break my fast and Ramadan? For some people, this one comes from the Mr. B hats are from those affairs that are considered to be in the gray areas not clearly halau for them, or not clearly hot. And the point here is not to give you a ruling on this. Because this hadith is not to give us rulings on this happiness to tell the believer How do
you respond? How do you behave and deal with those
issues in your religion which are not clearly allowed to you or not clearly have not been allowed, which SEBI has between them. There are gray areas
of sobriety directly on and off on official.
Your holiday usually go and
you can even
intellectually manage our international bar
Thus, he who guards against doubtful matters keeps his religion and his honor safe, but he will falls into doubtful matters falls into what is unlawful rededicate, but he will fall but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into what is unlawful, just as a shepherd who pastures has animals around the sanctuary, all what grazing there and surely everything has a sanctuary and a lot of sanctuary is his prohibitions, right? So here in this part of the country, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us showing us what a Muslim does a true believer in a Muslim mountains out of what does he mean when he comes to this area? That is that great area, the Prophet sallallahu
Sallam said, Whoever avoids indulging in those gray areas, then he is safe. He is safe, his religion is safe. His honor, is safe, his reputation is safe.
He said it is like come try. Yuvraj hola Lima, like a shepherd who takes his flock close to the sanctuary. preserve a preservation if you will.
Every King has a preservation. So let's just think about it like this. Alright, let's just say let's just say that this is who considers that this is the preservation here. All right. So we have these borders, we have these borders. Inside here we have what is time. This is
a last held data has made these things.
The profit survivor, someone uses this example when he says it's like a shepherd who takes his flock so he's out with his sheep
or goats and they're grazing.
Now, if he keeps them over here, they're not going to get close. There's, you know, a great distance 20 meters for example, between them and that pasture where they're not supposed to go.
But if he allows them to go right on the border,
what you see a case a case preserve a case sanctuary.
Isn't it usually greener than the rest? Something that's a sanctuary, it's greener than the red looks better. Anyway. The grass is always greener on the other side, they say But no, it really is greener. Okay. It's more reserved. It's. So what happens now when the animal gets that close to the border, and said it's going to eventually go over and start eating. And this this area grazing from this area, that's what happens when come rye Yarra, holy Amen. All around, all around the knees, allowing them to grace. Now, if you keep your distance, you're good, you're safe. And this is what the prophet SAW, while some of the same
The one who keeps his distance from that gray area, he'll be safe because he's not going to go into the gray area, he's not going to go into the heart.
But for the person who starts going in that gray area,
he's going to fall into harm. And this has to assess two possible meanings, both of which the scholars have said The first is that a person who
allows himself or has the audacity, if you will, to do something that he's not sure whether it's allowed. Now, remember,
he's not he doesn't know why this Halawa. Right, we said that this is that gray area. Should person do something that they don't know is Hello, got another word. We're not saying that he knows it's fun. But he also doesn't know what's allowed. So should a person don't know this is what the process is the same. Once a person has the audacity to start doing things that he's not sure about their permissibility then eventually that is going to embolden him and he's
Going to do that which is hot.
of the scholars have said. And that seems to be with the process as indicated here, you go into that gray area once you fall into the hot eventually.
And another meaning is that whoever falls into or indulges in the gray areas
will indulge in the Han. Yani by law of probability, if you will, because he doesn't know whether it's allowed or harm, but it is either allowed or not, he just because he doesn't know doesn't change the actual ruling of the day.
You understand, it's like the person who accidentally, for example, drinks come up.
And he didn't know, he didn't know what was in the company, thought it was apple juice, it doesn't change the reality of what's in the cup, it changes the reality of the city's not simple. He's not simple, he didn't do anything intentionally wrong. But it doesn't change the reality of that thing. So a person who is looking at a gray area, that thing that he's looking at is even allowed to harm, it's a gray area to him.
And so if he does it by probability, I mean, once, twice, three times, he's going to wind up doing that, which is how about, so this is another indication of that. And even some of the subset of this important honey, for the sake of
the door between the door that is between halau.
And haha is
the door between this is fit for your religion, you got to understand these things so that you can know how to navigate your own path in Islam. And some people some had a lot.
They only learned what to do when they could ask somebody else about should I do this? Should I do that? Yeah, you have to have some degree. And it is not going to be somebody around all the time, you have to figure out how to navigate your path. In the same way. That doesn't mean you shouldn't ask the sky, what you should ask the scholars about that which you do not know. And this is a command from amongst friends. But if you learn some of these basic principles of Islam, they will surprise you from a lot of questions.
The door between halala congressmen and whoever keeps knocking on the door, eventually will Danny that door is going to open to
your understanding. So if a person keeps on doing that, which is essentially that door is going to lead him to that which is to that which is hot.
And the door between that which is obligated upon you. And that which is my rule is a no back. So wherever you go back, I mean, whoever does a lot of things that have come back. Yeah, the more than what is necessary for them, then eventually he's going to do that which is Metro.
Nanny another words. And this is where this heavy comes in. Because we're talking about what Zulu and what are refraining from that which is going to harm you and in your hair. And
so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is showing us here, that if we stay away from the gray areas, that we'll be staying away from that which is going to harm us and the year after, and this is the way the believer, whoever those folks that he is going to fall into that which is hot, every king, the prophets ally was so upset as a pastor, as a as a as a sanctuary for preserved. And those things that Allah subhanho data may have are His sanctuary.
In a bill justly mortal on either side, I had thought I had just said Nikola Tesla that doesn't just
allow here upon.
Surely there is a piece of flesh in the body. If it is healthy, the whole body is healthy, but if it is diseased, the whole body will be diseased. Surely, it is the heart agreed upon that. So this is like the Bible parting wisdom. And the last part of the problem
is talking about the importance of the heart. He says that in the body, there's a piece of flesh. If it is upright, then the rest of the body will be upright. And that is a clear indication that the heart controls the rest of the body.
That your heart controls your limbs. And
if the heart is upright, then the rest of the body will be in corrupt.
Then the rest of the body will always also be corrupt. And this this shows is that if a person's actions are good, a person's actions are good, that that is a indication that his heart is good.
And if a person's actions are corrupt, then that is an indication that there is some corruption in his heart. And no one should come and say, while they're doing a corrupt action,
that, why are you trying to judge me? I mean, you're trying to tell them that you shouldn't do that, or you shouldn't do this particular thing or I gotta get up, it's time to break.
And they say, why are you worried about me? Why are you judging me?
You don't know whether I have tough or not tough was in my heart and you can't see my heart.
The profit is too slim. cert, said to have Boonen then piety suffers in the arts. But he also solare with some sensitive, the hardest upright, then the rest of the body will be upright. So don't take one hand easily the other, there is clearly some deficiency in the art otherwise, you wouldn't be leaving off events. Otherwise, you wouldn't find it so easy to do that with just time.
And so this is a proof against the person not for them. Tough Love is in the heart, no doubt, no doubt about it. That's where it stems from. And if it's there, it will show on the lens. That's the reality. This is the probably some of the saying here is that there's something to art and that art is upright, it will show on the limbs and this is the month as we know, this is the month, where a person strives to obtain topo from Mars,
prescribed this fast upon us, as he prescribed fasting to find the previous nation.
So that we could attain
piety, referer rate reformation and refining of our characters. This is what this month is about. And these ideas of the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA that he's showing us how to get there. Someone want to do something. There's nothing from the Quran except for the process of them explaining
how do we get tougher, we get tougher by avoiding the gray areas. Because that is that's going to develop that discipline that you need to first of all lost power to either applying the sealer with insights.
If we want our hearts to be right, we're lonely Ramadan is one of the best times because the hearts the heart becomes upright to keep things through email and true faith and I must count data and through a llama assadi righteous anger which a person in Ramadan is doing more than they would normally do. When you fasting, you're staying away from a lot of the things that distract you from the worship of Allah, no doubt. You're reading the Quran more with the grind, you're gaining him which helps your Eman. you're gaining knowledge which helps you increase and your belief in the loss of power died and knowing who he is who you're staying away from any of the things that aren't in
your heart. Don't lay them in a yellow by him on the long side and one of the great scholars of the center, who you should read about his story because he was a Highway Route.
Before law school data guided him, turned his heart to email. And he became one of the great stylists I've had he. He said
he saw them to conceal
that there are three qualities that aren't in the hearts. You tell me because they pay attention and because all of us in this month are trying to soften that hearts. And we we allow the monks to go by and aren't it's hard and we're not working on it. Now it's time to make it tender again, to make you receptive to the
He said there are three things that make your heart heart
Eating too much overeating. As hard as the heart and in Ramadan. This is a golden opportunity because the stomach shrinks during the day. You don't need to eat a lot to satisfy yourself and as long as you stick to a satisfied Ramadan is someone who is stalling stalling, you'll see you won't have to eat as much as you did prior to Ramadan to satisfy yourself to nourish your body.
Wants we're Catholics No.
sleeping too much
part is ours and it makes it personally nice
So you only need with so much sleep, that if you think about it, even the recommended amount, and I mean, some people say, eight hours, six to eight hours, if you can
lessen your sleep and increase your mother, that's good.
But a person shouldn't sleep too much disappointment
oversleeping makes the art make makes the heart arms. And a lot of times, it makes the person not be able to get up to do the things that they're supposed to do. You find somebody that sleeps a lot. He's not using the person that's getting up on his own. And without somebody having to slash water or something like that. Because he obviously that's just his thing seems to make so hard, right?
Well, guess what?
That's the third thing, talking too much.
We covered the Hadith where the Prophet is Salim said,
the law as Jordan despises hates for you
which can be translated as talking too much. Not just gossiping. Because that's not just what the hell it means that you're referring to just referring to somebody who cannot stop talking, they just always have to talk, talk, talk talk. And sometimes when the person says is good, but if a person talks too much, normally, usually what's going to happen is they're going to start talking about things that don't concern them.
That's the least of their problems. And then they go into start talking about things that are hot.
What is backbiting somebody, and sometimes people back by nations, ethnicities and don't even think about.
And that's even worse than backbiting a single individual.
And when you stereotype a people,
something that if you set in front of them, they will not like that. That is called running this meant callback by
callback. So we have to be very careful. Because we live in a time where it's very common for people to stereotype entire ethnicities and nationalities.
We need to be very careful with things that they would not like.
People from this nation are lazy. You hear that air
saw you, he must be lazy.
Just put us on Terry's particular fast horse. He's he's lazy.
He's backed by an entire nation of someone alive. We'll send out mailers right now to forgive us for what has preceded and guide us in the future.
So this has been the practice of Microsoft, somebody say, Well, how do we get to the end of it? I mean, the problem is like Tom is talking about staying away from gray areas, then all of a sudden he starts talking about the heart. What is the connection between the first part of the head even the last part, that's a question is, what's the connection between avoiding the gray areas and then at the end, or the process of lighting the sun? I was talking about the heart saving connection between the two.
If your heart is what,
accent very good. So if your heart is healthy, and upright, is going to control your limbs, and you're not going to indulge in those things, which you don't know or how are
you going to stay away from those things.
And the profit is there throughout the Quran. Rather the Quran, there is an emphasis there is a emphasis on taking care of your hearts
and brought the son of the Prophet it is someone who said to the point that
one of the time being shouted and
asked for we celebrate the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, or the amount of time that what was it that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to make most when he was with you? And she said at my house to do either the Prophet somebody was telling me the most was
it's called B and A d.
o Turner have the hearts. Oh, you will turn the hearts make my heart.
Make my heart firm on your deed. What does it mean for your heart to be firm on the dean and means that you give precedence to the Dean of his lab to the demands of Eliza Joe and his messenger or where anyone else is coming?
And over any other system in wildlife, that should give precedence.
Yeah, more comfortable.
With colombiana dealing, oh, the arts, make my heart firmer on your feet. We don't want to be shaky in our religion.
And we don't want things to shake us. We want to be firm, what the fittest come when when trials and tribulations come.
And you see some people in this day and age, they take one philosophy class, or philosophy one on one, and they may have been shaky.
They don't really know if they believe in alarm anymore. Well,
first of all, don't subject yourself if you don't have that type
of diseases, because to be honest with you, the
don't want to say I don't want to meet the people who voted those classes. So but there's nothing
to the point that the most profound of their statements is for service, that statement that the guy makes,
be there for I am what does that say? I think that for I think that's why, and this was like the most, I think that's why he didn't know that he really exists, until he could think and then because he can think now he knows he's existed.
And all of this type of sub sub sub sub that they voluntarily stopped sufficient.
It's not even
worth talking about. But the reality is because they had the ability, and it's not to say there's no knowledge in it, there is some knowledge, but because they have the ability to confuse someone, a person takes the confusion over their own certainty
against the principles of Islam.
So the reality is, is
that the reality the alternatives are speedbar firm when you leave, I mean, if you have to be in that type of class, you make this lie, strengthen yourself acknowledge. The reality is, is that even atheists, even atheists,
if you were to get down to the bottom of their own arguments, they have faith.
They have faith, the greatest is the biggest of them. Contemporary atheists are the ones who are supposed to be relying on science and these types of things like that. They rely on other scientists, because they're not specialists in every field. And in that manner, they have faith themselves. But they criticize religious people, not just Muslims, they criticize religious people in general for having faith in something. And that's the contradiction, that the point is that there are other things that come when a Muslim is trying. And it's like, where he faces difficulties, and he faces hardships. And nobody should just think that his he man is that strong, that he is
surprised that he doesn't have to make this throughout the prophet Isaiah slotless and himself, who received revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala, who saw to real in its natural form,
who prayed the last third of the Knights
who directly receive revelation from the last cantata, he used to say yes,
that become reality. So let's do it. You should learn that you should make it yours to do that you should teach your children and your family. And if you don't know if you can buy most of the books that are written, that have taught and I'm like, no Muslim, for example. That's an easy one to get the fortress of the Muslim that is there. You can memorize it from from there. The another to add that the profit is allowed us to make so that we can purify our insects and our souls. A lot. My anti Nazi taqwa was that he
came and told us
that we should make Allah Allah is enough to
give my soul it's someone give my soul as something was said
and purified. You are the entertainment that they You are the best one to purify. And to allow more than that you are the guardian of my soul and the watcher over tonight. What I know

time, probably some said, Dino, the one who is the slave of the dinar was the dino.
Yes, the gold was the gold coin, the gold currency.
and the one who worships
the dealer him the silver currents? Well, I do a complete book, the probability of selecting a sentence and a copy for is they translate the plush garments. Gun is sometimes made of silk, sometimes made of wool, sometimes a blend.
But it's a Ghanian extravagance.
The Prophet said that this person is destroyed. He's wretched, he's lost.
If he is given, then the peroxisome explains what that means if he is given something from the union, and he's pleased,
pleased with what
pleased with the loss decree.
And if he's not given something on the union, and he is displeased, he becomes angry. So his relationship with a loss of power in Thailand is based on money.
his relationship with his creator is based, in fact, his life revolves around revolves around possessions and wealth. And that is why he is called a slave
as well, I think because gold, silver and garments can be combined to one with books. But he is a slave as well.
Does that mean that
he is praying to his wealth.
He's asleep. He builds a statue of some or some type of idol out of his mouth that he bows down and prostrate, so non stop what it means. But that is not a little earlier. And this is the prophecy someone was talking about here something about a person being the slave to something else.
When your heart is totally attached to that thing, and that thing owns your art,
that you worship that thing.
What is it that gets you up in the morning? Is it so lots of failures at work?
You know, the difference between the question
some people set their alarm clock when he left for work.
And he becomes the slave of his of his career.
You set your alarm for budgeting, good luck.
That's that thing takes control over the arts, that you become a slave to that thing. And this is why, you know, some people think that they are in slaves, everybody's asleep.
Everybody, every human being is asleep. Your DNA doesn't allow you to be anything other than asleep. Just like you can't get away from breathing. Just like you can't live. without eating and drinking. You won't live if you're not asleep.
You are a slave to something. It's what pushes you it's what creates your drive as a human being any buddy who has an aka can another way if a person loses their mind, then they may not be asleep. But that person is not enough anymore. Anyway. They're they're not responsible religiously, for their actions. Anybody who has his right mind is asleep to some.
So you have to determine what it is that's going to create that drive in you. Are you going to be a slave of a law you want to put his commands and his prohibitions or everything else?
You're going to try to live the best that you can as a good Muslim, someone who is good to his neighbor, someone who's good to his family.
Because being a good Muslim does not just mean that you praying domestic five times a day, or that you pass in the month of Ramadan. It also includes your interaction with the slaves of Allah. How do you how do you interact with them?
What is your relationship like with your parents, the last time you spoken to your mother or your father
There's some type of distance that you had been the cause of between you and them.
And therefore I've fallen into what it must have died. As for me, I don't think that I don't think that being a good Muslim is simply that you fulfill your ritual acts of worship, but it is also in how you behave with the creation of a loss and along with that,
or are you a slave of something else
than anybody else? Anyone who is a slave to something else they destroy.
The problem is that this person is destroyed, who worships the dinar, and the data and these garments.
So we can't make our worship or most cannons out of predicated upon the fact that Allah has given us something
to memorize certain questions.
He's a member to lead
for Chroma when our mo for your opponent,
the person who is prized by last anti that was both the law is actually given him and honored him.
He says, My Lord has favorite me, what am I there are no other it either so but if he tries to throw restriction of his sustenance, you will not be and my lord has humiliated me.
I mean, this is his run the lead.
And most of our data has told us in the honeylocust, CNN, the running the the the I am in the in the eyes, as my servant expects me to be. If you are optimistic, and you expected from family, you'll get it.
And if you're pessimistic, and you think like that, and almost fell down and will give you what you expect from him. And
so this Howdy, this honey, the prophet alayhi salatu salam is showing us that we should not be attached to the dude.
And then whoever gets attached or attaches himself to the union, his loss he is in loss is almost
certainly the Brian, you want to
learn fully from Mr. Lupo? What are
the lessons over the last year that says, Oh, you believe, don't allow your wealth and your children to divert you from the remembrance of Allah?
How is it different somebody from the remembrance of Allah, they had this wealth.
it is time to pray.
But they're not going to go pray. Because they need to make sure that this deal goes down.
I need to make sure that this contract goes through I need to make sure that such and such happens. They're more worried about the mouse than they are about the prayer don't allow your wealth to divert you from the remember some allow for your children to the virgin from the remember the Roma. Now person they think that
they may actually, they may actually feel happy that they miss a lot.
Because they got that contract that
contract was for 1 million.
They look at that as being a game. And that's prophets.
Allah doesn't look at it like Romania file danika Hola. She won't, but whoever does that, they allow their wealth and their children to the
to the remembrance of Allah.
What is he going to pray to him I pray to I have to close my store.
I'm going to lose customers. So he doesn't
die, go on costume. Whoever does that Alaska daddy said they are from those who have lost
even though it might look to be to them from the outside to be a victory as loss manifestos and almost died. I said it was a must. You don't have to look to anybody else in the last
10 years you're done.
Why? Because a person has allowed their arts to be controlled by other than the creator of that artist.
And once a person does that, they become a slave to something off and once you become a slave to something else, you won't be a slave to multiple things
Have you because your heart is weak.
And so you sell yourself to the highest bidder.
And the only way you're going to be strong is if you make your heart for loss 10 out of the one I have.
And that is totally to worship Him in him alone. subhana wa Tada. That is how you gain strength. That is how you free yourself from the bondage of everything else.
The Prophet is allowed to sell me this Heidi, selling us to be slaves of Allah Subhana Allah, and not to be slaves of the director. And this is
that you probably hear such as Ramadan, leave me almost every night in Switzerland.
run in the beginning of the highly prolonged seminar and crush it right to the heart of the Howdy, where the Prophet alayhi salatu, salam, ala Tatiana dunya,
brought on Mina was a member in Vienna. And we should make this guy so that we that the dunya doesn't take him wrong all along. But probably some said all along law that says
don't make the duty, our biggest concern.
Notice that the prophesize Some said don't make that he didn't say don't make the doing your concern. He said don't make the dunya our biggest concern doesn't mean we shouldn't have any concern, but
rather, as Muslims as Muslims,
we have to have some concern about making the earth right to the best of our ability, whatever lands that we live in, trying to rectify them to the best of our ability.
And we need a person of the Union to get to the area so that we don't have to go around and ask people
and you lose your dignity
so that you can raise the right to spam. Also family with dignity. This is part of the sense. But it shouldn't be that
shouldn't be our biggest concern.
as some people know very little about their religion and they know very little about the hereafter. They know so much about the dean and the Prophet salado. Something went on to say, well, that's another enemy that and not the the RIAA or the objective of our knowledge should not just be this video. But the objective should be that we learn.
We learn even what we learned on the worldly affairs so that it helps us to be better worshipers of Allah subhana wa tada Hello, Adam. So long. So I don't mean I'm coming to do any questions. We'll take the questions now.
We have one question. A person's wife
was having her menstruation. And her typical ministration is seven or eight days. However, she was taking medication. And so demonstration was delayed for 11 days, she had wanted to make her own lock.
When Can she make? First of all, does she need to wait for the 11 days to pass? And after that 11th day is the fine if she can see pray and go oh my god. Like
the type of medication does the same with medication was purposely to also be the ministration.
yeah, that happens sometimes. When women take pills, in order to stop a lot of times they are doing it while they're doing it to try to put a
make the menstruation stop so that they can do some activity better.
And sometimes it doesn't work like that. So it causes demonstration to go longer than normal. If they can recognize that they can distinguish between the blood
meaning that they recognize it as menstrual blood, then they are considered to be menstruating is beyond their normal sight. Even if it is beyond the normal cycle whether they can distinguish and they can tell that it is not much true
that it is considered to be st hava which is an abnormal bleeding and the abnormal bleeding does not take the ruling of the menses so she is going to make new for every salon and she has considered that if she would have if she's experiencing the abnormal bleeding she is considered to be popular and she is pure
in the sense that she can pray fast, make online and so on so forth. If not MC recognizes that it is actually our assistant. She has to wait until it goes off in order to perform the Omar
Next question, how does one know when their faith is strong? For example, when I feel myself standing next to people in prayer, I feel left behind.
the question is about feeling strong.
And the profit is aligned to synonyms.
Rather allies Magellan
as instructed us in the manner to allow our faith to grow. And that is knowledge and righteousness. That is how a person's Eman is increased. When we say in the sort of fancier andina, a tsunami or new study,
we're asking a loss of animal with data to guide us upon that straight path. And the straight path is the path of faith that he meant. It's the path of the scholars who have the envy of the prophets and the city lead, for sure they'll strongly theme, Danny, those troops will serve as our last panel down to the righteous and sincere
how do we get to that path?
How do we know that we're on the right path?
the bathroom those who have bless.
Not the bad side, who are they not the past of those who have earned the loss and the ones who have earned the loss angered by those who know they have now.
But they didn't act according to their knowledge.
And not those who went astray. Those who went astray were those who were doing
the acts of devotion, trying to draw closer to the Law Center, but they didn't have knowledge. And we don't want to be like those and like those. So what do we have that we have to have both knowledge and righteous actions, that is how your demand increases. That is how many priests so a person can I mean, I don't think that anyone needs to be told that he whether they are strong any man or we can run them in Excel, Ansel Adams of Sydney, Matsuyama, every person is more, has more insight about themselves than another person, you know how you're feeling from one day to the next, you know, whether you're feeling strong. And whether you feel young, the humility of the poor, sure,
in your salon owner, you know that. And if you don't, if you don't, it's not a prophet to look at someone who may feel perhaps more than you. Because then you can strive to emulate them. And you can try to emulate them, and your prayers in your fasting and everything else that you may be doing. So this is not something that can be there's no measuring stick, if you will, that you can put out or or a breathalyzer that you read into that you can say that you can look and oh, my man is off the charts or it's too low. Or you have to push yourself you keep trying to for the Cheeto to strive to please Allah subhana wa Tada, the more your demand will increase, the more knowledge you gain on the
need, the more your demand will increase with you.
Alarm it. nuptse tough one. What was that? kena interframe moments

So the brothers question is Who do we consider to be the people of the book and the people of the book we consider the Jews and the Christians, the Jews and the Christians. And that does not mean that doesn't mean that
you know, because some people might say, well, he's a Christian, but he's not a practicing Christian. What are we gonna make? Okay?
You got to make tech fear of a Christian from his Christianity or a job from Judaism. He says the Christian the Christian, you certainly the Jew is a Jew. That's not for us to come down. And we're going to say we've got a real Christian because he only goes on Sunday. He doesn't go Wednesday and Sunday. I mean, that's for them to determine amongst themselves and they may take care of each other anyway. Any Catholic song see Protestants to be true Christians and vice versa? Are they call them idolaters Protestant, small Catholic psychologists
and their books.
questioner says I live in Saudi Arabia and they
say that the chicken which is imported from Brazil, is a gray area in terms of it being a lot. So should we not have
this product and
it was clear was clear, but it's not clear to you know what you have to do for the other people that is spiritual, don't go around
trying to, you know, be a gray area police officers,
that if it's not clear to you that you leave, but for other people when
they have their borders where they check what is allowed and is not, and the onus is upon them. And they shall lozada the meat that is in this country is Hello that we need. And for those people who are not comfortable, and then for them, they can leave it off. It's not a problem. But you shouldn't go to somebody's house, or Saudi Arabia. And he has some chicken or something like that. And you say, Hey, did you get your chicken from the supermarket? And wasn't Brazilian chicken? Oh, yeah. And the lies will just carry on listening to that. Kenny?
Okay, we'll call
allies, Adele despises them. You talk too much, you ask him any question.
Next question, what liabilities account? should I pay the car on a profit I made on someone else's goods? Even if it is not paid for six months? Again?
Say it again? Well done for them? Well, I think the cap on the profit I've made on someone else's good. Even if it has not paid for six months. Okay, what I'm understanding from this question I could be wrong is that perhaps someone else went into business with they went into business with someone, that person provided the capital. And they are providing the muscle of pupils. And they're the ones doing the work and the other person is providing the goods and they made a profit from that are they going to pay the cat on that Zoo cat is not going to come from, you're not going to look at what you may be doing business with that individual all of your money, all of your wealth is going
to be put together. And then you're going to look at the surplus wealth that you have once a year comes around after having recently song.
So once that once you have gone above the threshold is accountable threshold. Once a year goes around, and you come back around, you've had a solid
gun surplus throughout the year, we are going to look at all of your wealth combined and you want to pay 2.5% of that not look at each individual transaction that you've done, and profited from and paid to get the
questioner asks Can I share an apartment with a Buddhist and have this group?
it is it is best for a Muslim, it is best for a Muslim to only share his living quarters with other muscles. And this is better for his knee, it's more likely that they are going to encourage one another in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and be of help to one another. Because the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA then informed us in the authentic hadith, that the that the
wolf only Salaam sheep
on earth is going out. And he's not going to attack
50 sheep, he may scare those 50 sheep, the 49 and stick together he's not going after that, all by itself, that's the one that the wolf is going to go away. So
if you are when you are in those in a situation where you are living by yourself as a Muslim, what I mean by that is you're the only Muslim in your living quarters. And it's more likely that you're going to volunteer those things which are not permissible.
As for the permissibility of someone living with a Buddhist, and that depends on each person situation is not a blanket ruling that can be given to them. And when you go off to college, and that's how the dorms were assigned, for example, then it's permissible for you to dread the worst of the last panel data. Without getting into the worship of this particular person, whether that person was a Buddhist, true Christian, or whatever they may be, you may have family members that are non Muslims, and you live with them. And it's nothing that is that says that it is impermissible in fact to this land. I mean a man and man can marry a Christian woman as a Muslim man, and they are going
to live in the house with them. And they are not to be prevented from worshipping the way that they worship, nor are they to be prevented from
doing what is permissible and they do
that that's something that a lot of us don't recognize. So the point is that, in general, in general, a Muslim should strive to be amongst the other Muslims.
situation where they can be that they try to make their environment as conducive as possible to Islam after eating the food of a Buddhist, that the issue here is not to cook the food but where the food comes from, you might be the only one that buys for the, for the place that you live in
that apartment, for example, so that they cook, if they cook your meat that is permissible for you to eat.
Is it permissible to eat from the chains and the western circles? without mentioning names? Right?
This is a This requires a very detailed answer.
I'll make it as quick as possible and shorten by 2525.
All right, see, if we have a few minutes, this is Friday, and we want to leave a good amount of time for people to spend the last hour of Joomla into I needed to cry crawling upon the last
fight. The The first thing is this, our basic rule is that the vote of the people of the book has allowed us to live this is where we start from because almost no data sets on the line. This is where this is the baseline that we started. And if we look at the West, the West is a very broad term. So you may have some nations that are predominantly Christian nations and some that are not those nations that are predominantly the People of the Book,
that it is permissible for you to eat the meat of those people as a base food, provided that you don't have any further knowledge of the situation.
That's the baseline. Now, if you are aware,
for example, that the meat from this particular fast food chain
is comes from a particular slaughterhouse where they kill the cows before they actually
cut their throats and they shoot them and affect the cow becomes brain dead.
The cow because if something is brain dead is considered to be dead. And then they cut this role. If you know that that's the case that you stay away from, you stay away from the beef. If you know, for example, that they are mixing their oil, in other words, that the oil that they are putting there, for products in the same order oil and they use it to book their french fries. And you shouldn't eat the french fries, you understand, if you are aware of these things, then you then at that point you you judge accordingly those things are either permissible or not.
At the same time, at the same time,
in most places,
it is recommended that you avoid to fashion places of the people that would vote for the fact that there's a lot of mixing going on, you know for a fact that they sell for that
at all, okay, which means that there is going to be a likelihood that there's going to be some form of mixing going on. All right,
you know that there is an issue with the way that the meat is stored.
And you're perhaps not comfortable with it. So the other thing is,
is that as Muslims living in the West, for minorities in general, we should support the other Muslims. Muslims have passed places that we just said that it was just
kind of you need to have your burger in your fries, for example, that you won't find a Muslim lately in Milan, that will fulfill that need, maybe it's more expensive signalize to a job, the more that they might seek is rewarded paid for for number one, number one because you're supporting a Muslim establishment. And number two, because you are going out of your way to avoid the hot
not going out of your way. But what I'm going to show you you're going the extra step, you're going the extra step to avoid the hot and this is something that will be reported by most accounts, both for you and the society as a whole. Because if we as the Muslims do not support the Muslim businesses, we go we say call this Peter's house. So you go to a regular supermarket that everybody else goes to we're not going to have enough alternatives.
For halau meats gonna be happy
because even if that means you say is halau isn't it? Yeah. Is it sort of In the name of Allah subhanaw taala? Probably not. I need to point yours that as Muslims
We should not just be looking at one plus one equals two, for the black and white is allowed is canal time or spa, we need to look at what's better for the Muslims to be doing. And we have Muslim establishment let's let's seek allies with Joe's reward by supporting those Muslim establishment so that they will increase. And we'll have multiple alternatives. The same thing goes with the Islamic financing that exists in the West right now, which may not be 100%
but they say Sharia compliant. So it may not be totally what we want it to be. But it's a better option and maybe more expensive, than when we look at it down down the line down the line, you say you're after 15 years, I'm going to wind up paying this particular county Sharia compliant company. This is more amount of money than if I was to go to a to a regular mortgage, conventional mortgage sequela has no record of doing so. Because if we can increase the amount of people who are working on viable options to conventional mortgages to be in the later either maybe not today, but maybe 10 years down the line, maybe the next generation, maybe our children will have a 100% Sharia
But if we turn away from the efforts that are being made, because we say well, it's still a gray area, it's still only 5050.
Right? And we go with the conventional 100% interest on your interest. Right? Now what is the alternative is going to be created? How is the alternative points of view? So the point is that we have to get out of the mindset of just calamity. So I'm not going to sit up here to answer the question about fast food places in the West not going to give a broad based answer to that question and just say yes, it's allow for each fast food dining place has its own ruling. And you should ask the scholars in your particular locale, what they recommend when it comes to those fashion places. But I will say that in general, that we should stay away from them and support the Muslims to the
best of our ability or
Is it permissible to dye your hair
Yes, it's permissible to dye your hair but this woman should not dye his hair black, the province in line with
any prohibited Muslim die a Muslim male dyed his hair black
and the Muslim should stay away from imitating non Muslims. And if that becomes the
fad at that particular time, people are dying to hear yellow and purple and the Muslim mouth comes to these diamonds here to imitate them is something that it wasn't just stay away from it. But to dye your hair dark brown for example is permissible. Hello, no.
Yes. Last question. Yes.
You should ask the scholars of your area shall Yeah, because these are these are issues when it comes to various forms of insurance, whether it is car insurance, liability, health insurance, otherwise, those are things that have to be dealt with by looking into the specific matter at hand. And it should be dealt with the people of your locality. The people who have knowledge in your locality. I'm almost certain that I've been another Dino is lonely now. While certainly that the years ago TP and omashola were also working in a Gilbertson that lives in LA that was out of hire to the to the to the proletariat, while motor markets opened up shop about what we can be a shuttle
