wa salatu wa salam ala
nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our affiliates will have a voice.
He was the man, the man give me the on
demand TV Kiwi.
confit jr came
around to Serbia to strengthen the
around messenger, so a lot
of my shoulders and said
confit dunya can like every one of us to be to be in this world as though you are a stranger, or a wayfarer. And I'm really not the mother who won a sale on a subtotal. When I will do and we'll see now we'll see that
may I be in love?
One minute you
watch the Buddha, Shri Krishna was
Samadhi. While he was suffering, he was centimeter
Today the 15th of Ramadan 1438, corresponding to the 10th of June
2017, in the midst of the 12th lesson, from the keytab, a gem, a comprehensive book
by a competitor less millennial.
And we are under the chapter of Zurich. And what I observed and what I and so it as was mentioned previously, is to take only from the dunya that would you mean that which is going to benefit you in the hereafter so you avoid everything that is not beneficial to you, and the hereafter. And the Why is to avoid those things that are going to harm you. in the hereafter this Hadith, the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA Nam is giving us our philosophy of life, how should you live your life?
What should you be like in life. And so here the purpose of it, some of them depend on the level
of your long term enrollment so that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam came to Him face to face, not from behind them, but face to face. And he put his hand on your shoulder, people Hands on your shoulder, and then some erases it says we make you bait Yeah, which is to put the hands on both shoulders, but most of them say the main key, which means that he put his hand on my shoulder. And he said to me complete dunya
very bfsi life as if you are ready, which they translate a stranger.
But that doesn't give the full meaning. And so we got to stop before we go look at the rest of the headache. We want to stop you what is the problem telling him to be like a buddy.
Or like a wayfarer, someone who was just passing by on the road.
The difference between the two is this.
Do any of you brothers living in Saudi Arabia, live here and sell like you are ready, because you're not salary.
But she lived here. But you live here in Saudi Arabia. So you are a non citizen, which is closer to what Kareem would meet someone who lives in a land. But it's not from the people of that land. And so the way that he lives in that land is not like the citizens of that place. He is only going to take from that place when he needs which will make it easier for him when he returns back to where he's from. So it's hard, it's not attached to the place that he's living is as hard as attached to the place that he comes from. So you'll find that many people come here to work, for example, to this country, and half of their paycheck, three quarters of their paycheck or even more, they don't
use it here. They send it back to wherever they're from, because they are trying to build something in the place that they're from. They want to build a home there, they want to have land, they want to do something for their family to the end. So the person who is a math citizen or a stranger, if you will, they're only gonna be in that land to do that which is going to benefit them and the land that they actually come from. So this is someone who is very Alright, a stranger or nonsense.
Hey Rob, is to be somewhere
Just going through, it's probably like the rest of you, you come to Medina because it's Ramadan because you really want to make.
So you come from a data you pray here, the problem is basically you keep it moving, you go to, to the SharePoint day two or three or something like that. So this person is happy Sabine, someone who's just going through their connection to the place, that they stop. And it's even less than the nonsense, they're only stopping there for some rest to get something to eat, or whatever it is that they need to continue along that path. Prophet alayhi salatu salam is telling the believers that in this life, you should live as a stranger of money or a non citizen, or someone where you wait for someone who is just passing through.
And neither one of these two people
is like the people of the nation,
or the people of the land
of which he is passing through. And that's because he used that as a temporary stop,
as a temporary start, where's the other people look at it as being something that is permanent to them.
if you were to consider
what life's end is, which is that,
and then a person is going to go to a different abode of permanent abode, that that is how one is supposed to live life, and be the home of many. And this one
was Adam created honor.
Not Israel, gentlemen.
So the heart of the believer is attached to the hero who's not attached to this,
because he's only here temporarily. And as permanent abode is somewhere else. So if he is a non citizen, he is taking from this like that which will build his home, and gentlemen, and he only needs from this like that, which is going to make it easier for me to next.
And so he's going to spend the majority of his effort
putting forth that which will make the next place a more permanent abode, one that is righteous and upright for
the wayfaring, even, even more so. Because his only connection to the dunya is that which is going to put him on the path to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we look at the prophet Isaiah select to sin
for the alone time and by extension, the rest of us, because he is our property. So like to say he was sent to mankind, he wasn't just set to live in Ohio, the alone time and or the campaigns were wicked, he was sent to mankind. So when the Prophet
speaks, but there is this hadith or any other hobby, that is something that we should take to heart as if the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was talking to us individually, as if he was speaking to us individually saying to be one of two things, either a stranger and this person panel, let me know, let's put a little further light on the situation.
When a person is not over people,
when a person is not up to people,
does he really care what they think about him?
And generally, he could care less what they think because he's not from them anyway. Nor does he compete with them and what they seem to be, you know, their worldly, you know, goals and their worldly sets, certain things that may be something to them that is great on him and his eyes and to his people.
You understand the value system differs. And this is very important to recognize that when you are a stranger, when you are a bad citizen, you generally have different values than the people you live amongst them as soon as a bit different. Because whether you're Muslim from the west, from the east, Muslim from the Middle East, there are there is a certain shared value system, because we have established our base, but I'm talking in general about being amongst the people that are not your people. In general, there's a different value system. So you're not going to compete with them and what they believe is honorable and what they believe is to be the goal of life.
Likewise, you are not going to be that concerned about what they think about you
Because, really, you're only going to be with us for a short period of time anyway. So it doesn't, it doesn't matter.
If this is
the instruction of the Prophet on a slab of cement to the belief,
we are not from the people of the dunya. In that sense, our attachments is not to this life. And so the people who only know this life, they know nothing over here,
their attachment is to the union. So our value system is different. And we can't allow ourselves to be subject to their value system.
Likewise, we are going to do things as Muslims, that seems strange to them. Because of the fact that they are the people of dislike, not from the people of the hereafter we are people who want to hear. And when we are strange to them, we shouldn't be up to people who care.
We shouldn't care what the process is. So you're a stranger anyway, you're there for it, it's okay to be different as a Muslim. It's okay. The second so this is the first things that the Prophet is doing, Sam is telling
me alongside and then you should be in this state. And then the person that is in the state is going to be in a state of perpetual preparation, always preparing himself for the inevitable, waiting for his opportunity to be the last one. And with that, the second state that he says is that he is like a traveler, a commuter.
Not someone who was just strange that he's gone to this land for a year or two, or whatever it is, but he is like a traveler,
which means that he is only stopping for a specific reason. And then he's going to continue along this path.
And, however, to lose in this condition, whoever is a traveler, he has to take his provisions with them with him.
And the best provisions are last time now that says is one. One in a famous said, a tough one, the best provision that a person can add is a tough one.
That is the best thing that you can take with you on your journey, life is a journey. Life is a journey. And once you die, all of the things that you have accumulated in this life.
Things are going to follow up on the property select Listen up. So yes, by all means,
what his family
is what is well, and is this action to go back to work or to go back and one is going to stay with his family circle back. No matter how many children he has, no matter how many spouses
none of that is going with,
no matter how much opms no destoyed with him, the only thing that's going to stay with him at the end of his journey, his needs, his themes, whether they are good or bad. So first, it has to use this line to prepare for the next. And this is what the prophet Isaiah
is instructing us. And this particular one of the seller said to his brother, he said death is heading towards you.
And this slide is going behind you. And it's similar to the statement of a loss of data. And if we think about it, what
if a person if a person is scared of something?
Do they usually run too far away from
they run away? They run away, right?
But he lost his data set in the Bronze Age.
de sac fifth rule that means
you are running away from the mind. You're running away from it for
me to fit in and make room for enough people
is in fact in front of you.
Think about this side.
Think about death. A lot of people run away from it. Not literally. Obviously they're not literally running away from it, but they don't want to think about
why do you always talk about the hero. The Prophet is alleged to have said and said that feel mistaken. He has even less than that.
mentioned the destroyer of pleasures, has anyone left that?
axiomatically mentioned it a lot. Because it's inevitable me by isn't that a person who panela many of you think about it, you know that you have a test coming up with job interview, something that you know is coming up in front of you is very important to you, you're thinking about it.
And that may become the most thing that you talk about, it becomes the subject of your conversation, because it's important to you
properly. So I mentioned that a lot, because it's inevitable. What is the
ideal one, don't get me I know. And as the year after his real life, if they only know if they only know, so let's say data is telling us and this time, tell them say to them death, from which you are running away, is in front of you? How do you run away from something that is in front of you?
because you're actually running to it. And this is why I leaned on the alarm to Thailand or my brother, who said,
I need to select the cyber power, you know,
he says that
the dunya, cut the talents,
that the toolkit is going away, service back when you saw it that way.
And they hear after is coming towards you, as both of them have to
both be here after, after Do you have children for whom is meant
to be from the children of the hereafter. And don't be from the children of the duty. Don't be from the children of the dunya don't allow your heart to get attached to the dunya. Now this is not
the Prophet alayhi salatu salam here is not saying that we totally abandoned the doing and that we don't do in this world, which is going to be beneficial for us that we don't have any aspirations. This is not what the proper is like Lucena is telling us to do. But he is saying that if you are in this world, like a stranger, that that is the way your heart should be attached to the doing, you know, within Illinois, or Canada
either and save
money along with Canada. We used to say
an explanation and explaining this Howdy. How did he understand this Howdy, he certainly the Center for trouble.
If you make it so nice to the nighttime, if you make it to the evening, then don't wait for the morning to come. I'll explain.
Why does fighter pilots and COVID.
And if you wake up in the morning,
don't wait. Don't expect to make it to the evening
take from your health, that which will benefit you when you are sick. What
is the woman
and take from your life, that which will benefit you even after you die this is collected by a member to heart. So the intent of this study is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam giving us the belief, religious believer,
philosophy of life, how to live, what should your connection be to the student that you should live in your world the connections because what happens when a person has a lot of possessions.
Their mind becomes attached to making sure that the things that they own
don't spoil if you
want to make sure that everything is right. And when a person's heart is attached to those things, they're not going to be attached to a lump depending on what time so whenever don't want to be alongside and he was saying is that you should work
and you should put forth effort in the morning. As if you are not going to make it to the night is
either set up alerts and cover to survive. If you make it to the evening, don't expect to live to the morning and if you
Make it to the morning but don't expect to live to the evening.
If a person lives in this life,
as if he's going to die tomorrow.
This means he's not going
to sign this handy.
dandy his talk talking about what they call an Arabic persona, and that he or she don't have this expectation of living forever. Because what happens when you expect and when you hope to live a long time is that you've progressed.
So you see that some people in certain countries, this is actually kind of famous.
They live however they want to live
the first 60 years of their life, at six feet.
They plan on making how much
what's the reward for making hash,
the hash that is not blue, that is itself the policy data that all the previous cells have been given. So their idea is that I want to make hydronium succeed, no matter what I said before that this okay, because of what I make has all my sins are going to be forgiven.
But first of all, that is a very warped understanding of the patches about and number two who has guaranteed life until you turn 60 who guaranteed you that you would live that long.
One of the setups that I've gone to sleep expecting to wake up.
I've never gone to sleep expecting to wake up. Notice that being that means that he when he goes to sleep he's prepared. He's repented to Alaska data, these people do have no sleep on his right he got sick on his face all of the things that he can do to prepare for his feeding when the last panel died. Because he doesn't even expect to wake up. And this is basically
the alone triangle is telling us in this country that we need to prepare for that. Not like some of the scholars say and this is a famous statement that he you want to you want to live or plan as if you're going to live forever. So you have to have a plan for your life. But you don't expect to live past tomorrow, which means that you're going to look for everything that you can do in this day. Every act that you do that is leading to a loss of health data you put forth in this day before the night comes.
Because it is probable
I think it's important to point out something and it is directly related to this heavy
and that is the importance of the importance of developing and nourishing your good habits. Now if you look at this, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said take from your health
that which will benefit you when you are sick. That's because you can do things when you are healthy, that are not available to you once you get sick.
Right now it's easy for your company to go Cray and dementia with the rest of the muscles.
When you get sick brother contacted me yesterday
a friend of his was worried about his heartbeat
because he misread humans.
Why did he mistreat human eyes he's been sick for over a month. And he's not able to get up and go to the menu. Obviously, this person is excused. He's excused even if he missed print do items for that reason these methods don't seal on his heart baby legs.
But the fact that his heart is attached to the message
and he came onto the messenger because he said
the profit is
normally along with that. And with this it is saying take from your health that which will benefit you when you are sick. But the profit is also told us the content it will come from the pumps take advantage of five things before five other things happen. One of them is your health before you become sick,
that sometimes you get sick and you have to spend extra money for your care. Now you can't give a charity the way that you used to take advantage of the opportunity that you have when you're out there like this is one of the things that the prophet Isaiah select was sent us to encourage us to do which is to visit the city
is beneficial to them, you want to make life for them, they're going to have some degree of solace in the fact that their friends are visiting them or whatever, but it benefits you as well. Because you remember that NEMA of health.
That is a true blessing from a loss of habitat that you are healthy, you take advantage of that you're healthy, now you can make your own money, there may come a time There may come a Ramadan that comes through when you're not healthy enough to make coming home, to take advantage of it while you can.
Beat the other thing is that from a life of a Joe grace and His mercy to us, it says those things that we've done consistently, when healthy,
will be written for us even if we become sick.
So that's one of the important matters. That is one of the reasons why it is so important to develop good habits.
Because the if Milan, you used to pray for breakfast every day, in addition to your footprint. So you pray to service before, before before going into action, with the hope that data will build for you, I'll suggest
when you get sick, for example, you're not able to do that you're sick for a week for two weeks, you're not able to create those extra records, they still be written for you as if that is if you're doing it.
Because those things that you develop habits for doing while you are healthy, will be waiting for you when you don't have the ability to do that when you are sick. And this is why it is very important that we develop those good habits in Ramadan is one of the best times to do that, because of the very little distractions compared to the rest of the year. And you don't have to save the strength of the Ramadan that you have during the rest of the year. So very easy to develop these good habits. And this is why one of the scholars of the past set a local level for that much to ponder over the sacred. Because even though the Prophet it didn't say this, it is prophetic in the
author, let sensible people
want a free or a person who combines these three qualities. He said men are
the one who pleases his Lord before he makes him.
Think about you please the last time that you're doing this, like that, before you meet him some kind of attack. That is the opposite of that, as someone who has earned a lot of anger in this lesson. And then he does. The second one is going to
be covering a couple of angles, you know who the one who has prepared for being in the grave, before he is put in that great The one who prepares for being in the grave, before he is put in that grave. And then the Prophet It is so this is the scholarship women talk a couple of months ago and this is directly related to the Heidi, the one who leaves the dunya before the New Year leaves him. In other words, the Brotherhood detaches himself
from the dunya before the dunya leaves before he dies.
So this has been
this is the recap. The Prophet is alive in the sense of being one of two types who are the
cry of a stranger who is a stranger?
Because Because to be honest with you, that is weird. We translate the stranger. We don't usually in English at least consider someone who lives in a land. And you know, for example, you might be your neighbor, we would call him a shrink, right? So what do we mean when we say stranger?
That does kind of work? A visitor Okay, the visitor. Sorry. So it's kind of
a not. So this will help you understand what we're talking about. Because that helps us to develop the frame of mind that we should be in.
I'm saying even when you because all everybody here right now is either a stranger or wayfair everybody that's here right now. But what I'm talking about is even when you're back in your land, wherever that may be, where you're where you built your home or you purchased your home or your family's home is there and you're amongst your people.
You're still you're still supposed to live as a nonsense, as if someone was simply taking what they need from that place to build what they need for their permanent home or you should be
So that's one man citizen or as a traveler, or waiting for someone who is a commuter, someone who's just going through and we should take advantage of every the province as I was sitting here is encouraging us to take advantage of every opportunity that we have in life. So please allow us to handle time and this is whatever normal or the allowable time as explained in this study, when he said if you make it to the morning, then don't expect to live until the evening and if you make it to the evening, don't expect to live until the morning and these are you know, we should be making a promise survive. In the morning we should make our thought that the promise is encouraged us to make
a thought on the sense making throughout before going to sleep. The Prophet Allah as I was saying, used to recite what
allow us to do the next
three times each before going to sleep he will lay on his right side
he will say Allah, if you have any
laying down on my right side.
If you take my soul then at first you own it and if you accept it down either you're allowed me to live that guidance, body and other drives into profit identify who said I used to make before going to sleep The point is that a person should have a routine,
a routine that is pleasing to alarms animal with data and to prepare. And this life, what is going to face in the next
day he was sending
Dhabi was a home in North Korea,
narrated by Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama,
Rama he was an upset he will imitates any people is one of them. I will double reported it. And if you have been reading it, copy it, it was awesome. Also rated as a good ad by cable TV or fair, at least by the TV.
And graded as authentic by a lucky and
a ship messalina landed on him on lockdown.
And this has been
the process of learning when someone says whatever imitates the people is of them. Whoever imitates the people is often
what does this have to do with the chapter that we're studying? The chapter that we're studying is dealing with someone. And he refraining from those things which are not beneficial to you in the Union.
What does this
have to do with the chapter? I'm so
That That is true. That is true. The brother says that it is an encouragement to imitate the people who are doing good those people who are righteous. And it is an encouragement to imitate them. Yes. But this is actually not usually explained that men.
not? What is the meaning of the hobby? What is this hobby has to do with abstaining from the Jr. in the sand away from that because I'm going to benefit you in the
fight in general. In general, other people, other cultures are attached facility,
if you follow them in their ways, is going to also make your heart attached to them. And we are encouraged to stay away from them Yes.
you lose your life. No, the prophet is allowed to say
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says whoever imitates the people his outfit is now well. The scholars have differing opinions about what it means when we say that he is
the least of that is that it is the profit on his side who sent him his forbidding us from imitating Gandhi that is the ruling that we benefit from this that it is permissible to imitate others and look into who those others are and what that means. But it is here that doesn't mean that is up to them.
suffer silence of the past prefer to leave the honey as is. And they consider it to be what they call out from the hobbies and ye from those ideas, which contain a threatening statement in.
And they leave it like that because it's enough for periphery Muslim, for a Muslim, to be afraid that he is up another people means that he is not a Muslim. Not that it necessarily implies tech fear cyber crime, what does it mean to imitate another people? If a Muslim is a Muslim person named braze, suit? And a tie?
Does that mean that he is imitating a non Muslim?
Yes or no.
If he wears a regular pants and a shirt, does that mean that because of that imitated another that he is imitated and other people. No, it doesn't mean that Why? Because the imitation that the Prophet is allowed to sin is prohibited. And the study is to imitate a people and that which is specific to them, that empathy to people and that which is specific to them.
such that if you were to do that thing,
or if you want to wear that thing, then it would be you will be considered to be amongst those people.
So for example, if you were across around your neck,
that people would think you are
a Christian, because wearing the cross on your body is specific to to Christians, if you want a little flag be
on the head that doesn't cover the entire hair or anything like that.
you be considered?
Yes, that would be considered imitating a Jew even if you pray five times a day, even if you let people tell me that on that's imitating that's imitating a
this is prohibited. This is prohibited in Islam, because there is a direct
following of a people and what is specific to that people. As for those things that are not specific to a people, that this is not considered to be imitating them, it can't be imitated, because it is not specific to any one particular piece.
And that is why this happy has to be understood according to the time set of people are living in and according to the place that they are living. Because imitation can vary from place to place, and from time to time. And this is why the habit of it has Rahim Allah when he was explaining
me a similar idea in Matthew Berry, he talked about a shawl that used to be formed by the Jews.
And it was specific to them. Now some of the scholars talked about that a person who wears it, like the Jews wearing it would be would fall into the fall into this prohibition that have them. But as for these times the know meaning that why because the Muslims have
also adopted this and it's become prevalent amongst people of all different societies.
So likewise, if the Tower of the past, where you may find some of the scholars of Assam prohibiting the Muslims from wearing what would be considered at that time, and the masculine, right, the French or Western Western quote, whether that is a suit and tie, or pants and a shirt, or whatever it may be. That was because at that time, it was specific to Westerners, and the Muslims didn't wear those kind of clothes. But now that it is become widespread,
widespread that but it is not considered to be something that is specific to them,
as we're imitating them in matters that are specific to them.
That has some degree of belief associated with it, then the Muslim should avoid this, for example,
and this had this actually
was something that invaded the Muslim world at some particular time in the not so distant past.
The engagement ring that was not enough for assistance is something that was common amongst the Muslim girl, that there will be a ring that the woman would take from demand, not that it's something that was ever permissible
something totally unheard of. But not that it was also a part of the marriage, as it is becoming many societies, where because there's an engagement, there's a ring, and the way that you know that a person is married from that, as you look here, the ring finger on the left hand, if they don't have a ring on, that means they see. And if they do have a ring on, that means that they're married. Right. So this has become prevalent in certain societies to the point that to the point that the Muslims adopted that as well.
You don't have your ring on. The Muslims adapted that as well. And then what happened? Is it something sometimes it will be sent to them take it off? They will say no, right? Because they believe that if they took it off, that that would create divorce.
But that would be the onset of divorce, that there was a reality that this was going to cause the divorce by taking the ring off. So
by adapting that, by not think that practice, subject themselves to also adapting the belief. And that's why it's very important to be cautious about what practices are adapted. And even if even once they are adapted amongst the Muslims, they become widespread, that we have to be very cautious about implementing or or about making them a part of our particular lives and our particular routine.
When it comes to coding, a lot of times we think of this hobby, we automatically think of code. No, that is not necessarily the case.
Because there's a great book that has been written on this subject and very, in a lot of detail. And that is a book called democracy
which has actually been translated translated into English 40 years ago, under the title in tavia, against popular religion or something like that popular culture or something like that. But the point is, it's very decent.
And I mentioned it, because he points out something very important in the beginning of the book, and that is that many people when they think of a shepherd or imitating the people, they only think about what is on downside.
And they don't think about how we as Muslims, have imitated the people who came before us and those things that allow us the power to condemn them for.
So for example,
only accepting the truth.
If it comes from your particular click, your particular group of shapes your particular
This is not from Islam.
It is affect the way of the Jews. The prophet Isaiah
tells us to the one he would say to them follow that which has been revealed to you Come along,
they would say no, we only follow the revelation that came directly to us. And we reject the revelation that comes after.
Why is that? Because they came from Mohammed even as unless it was something he was an Arab, he wasn't a Jew.
So they don't accept that.
This is from their way. If the Muslims now talking about this in the beginning of this book, and we come now we only accept what has been said by this shape, or this shape, or this particular group, or this particular sector, whatever.
That that is imitating the Jews. And that's where it
likewise, talks about
what he calls a loser.
Gary rose from South Africa, whether they be followers of the poor middle of the night, and those sorts of zombies no matter what they may follow.
Each one of them considers the other ones to be totally astray.
Even though, as Muslims, they have to have some degree of truth to them.
There's some degree of truth to that. So he says that by declaring each one of them declaring the other to be a shred to the point that you have certain methods. Well, he hasn't been
in a certain time period, but they would say to men, if this is my head,
comparison for me, the path might have been not vice versa.
And if you're from Tesla that you should have pray by someone from Lebanon,
as if they were
This is imitating This is imitating the far right.
Because the Jew said may sit in the saw, as I say,
we'll call it in the solder laces of
the Jew said the Christians don't have a leg to stand on,
they'll find nothing.
Christians came back and said the Jews are the same, they have nothing to sample.
And they both read the Scripture.
They're coming from the same place.
So the reality is, is that if a Muslim comes now and treats another Muslim in that same fashion, and we are imitating the Jews and the Christians,
so don't just think of imitation as something that is from the outside.
Now, this takes us to another point. That is, why did the prophet Isaiah select mussalam prohibit imitation of other peoples in the first place? And that is because we're talking about the external imitation, if you will. And that is because there's no doubt that the person outside appearance
has an effect on the way that he behaves.
Okay, sure, that's true.
If you were to buy
a camouflage outfit,
he puts on his camouflage outfit, and then you give him a couple of stars and put on his shoulder plastic gun. What happens? automatically, he feels a connection
with the other people with the camouflage when he wants to behave like them, you know, the returns to any separate trading itself, it doesn't always mean
that there's an automatic thing that happens based on for the person.
It does change the way that they behave.
Likewise, if you were to buy handmade
soap with a fish that it was like the Lamb of the nanny fatale, for example, he puts on and he, you know, he, he starts to feel like he's
right. Because what he wears has an effect on the way he believes.
And I find
this, this is important. This is important for those who live amongst non Muslims. Because which where does make a difference? And this is not the this is not a better one. This is not something to say you can or you shouldn't you should you need to be 14,
about what's best for you and the land that you come from. Sometimes, sometimes openly dressing
like a Muslim, but does that mean somebody says there is no goals specific to that? That's true. That is true. And in this soul is not specific to Muslim. The Pakistani garb is not specific to Muslim, but if you were it, that people in general, identify you as being a Muslim,
if identifying you,
as a Muslim, is going to cause some harm
to your ability to call people to Islam. For example, there's a function people just can't get on. You know, there's a certain class of people they think if you go to them with this open that if they accept this lamp, that they're going to start to have to dress like you. And they like Nah, I could never do that. That just wouldn't work in my profession and whatever it is. So the way that you dress
has now had a negative impact on your ability to get the message of a slap across the finish line alone.
It's better for a person to wear jeans and T shirt for the rest of his life. Skinny jeans and T shirt for the rest of his life was shad.
Filling to Johnny verse overnight.
Even though On that note, skinny jeans of assumption. Were something that is going to squeeze net he has to squeeze into
to the point that he tries to sit down he can't even sit down and so I probably will be so tight.
If he does sit down all day
Why is there no split?
Right? This is this is the point that the Muslims have
blessed me with a different way.
And we leave that way. But the 72 analogy was in return for that which is worse
than the return what is better for that, which is less, but I'll get to that point in a minute and tell them because there's a reason for that.
So the issue of of dress,
depending on where you live, and depending on the situation, is going to determine how you how you dress, how you dress. So some people, for example, and this witnesses myself,
because you openly can be identified as a Muslim, and it's actually better without
a person may come to you and say, you're a Muslim, can I ask you about something, I said, this happens, this happens.
Or it may be something that in your particular area actually serves as a protection.
You're going to Fletcher it's four o'clock in the morning, and you're walking down the street
with the third one.
That would be Robert recognizes you as a person, Nobody leaves you alone, because he's just going to cry.
The point is, the point is that there's no one particular rule. There's only one particular rule for whether you dress and I'm putting this in quotation marks as a
Gani meaning identifiably as a Muslim, or not. Yeah, or, or you wear the clothes of the land in which you live. But as Sam has given us guidelines, this is not the place to go into the guidelines. Meaning that if people of that length,
let's just take the women, the women where you from, they don't care. They don't cover their heads, they don't wear hijab, they wouldn't tight clothing. We can't say for the Muslim woman, well, because you live in that land, you can dress like a woman of that length. Islam has its rules and regulations for both genders.
It's like a man can come in with tight clothes. I mean, Muslim male, or Muslim man cannot do that. Likewise, the women, they have their restrictions as well, this is again, this is not the place to go into the guidelines of nutrition, and that's for a different time to show us.
The the issue here, though, is this
too distill the last part of this article.
That is that we should not
only focus on the ruling.
A lot of times
we see certain Muslims doing things that we know they should not do their property that they're imitating with non Muslims, for example,
as we go on, we shove the ruling down in groups. Yes.
clarify what the ruling in Assam that's something that's obviously,
you should aware that you shouldn't cut your hair like that you shouldn't do that, because that is what we need to look at the root cause of this issue.
Because there is a root cause. When a person imitates another person, he does someone.
inferiority, here, he feels like those people are better.
And because of that, because of that, he leaves his way. He knows ways better this land, and he imitates the other people, because for some reason or another, he has been made to believe that that way is better than it is. It is not simply because they are the majority. Because there are many minorities that feel that they are better than the majority. And they boast about whatever it is that they believe in the way that they dress to the end of it, they're not going to change their way to be like the majority because they believe that they're better.
Think about a fraternity at a at a at a university.
They joined this fraternity, they feel like they're better than everybody else. They are changing their ways. They're not changing the things that they do so that they can be accepted by a majority because they feel like they feel that they are better
than the rest of the people. So the reason why people imitate other people is inferiority. And that is why we shouldn't just focus on the ruling. We should focus on giving the Muslims what they
To recognize the beauty of the Wii, and to recognize that Islam has provided us with the best way.
And that that which opposes the way of the same is not better. It can't be better if it's an opposition or contradiction. That doesn't mean that every other way actually contradicts this thing. But that which is in contradiction to saying that we should recognize that it sounds better,
that we have to teach this is the point to teach our children, our siblings to love this theme.
I mean, this is this is the point to not only that, but that this is the path that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And that if if there is a path that is contradictory, that it is not pleasing to us parents out there in our lives, and our desire to lead him to be all for our love and desire to please anyone else, even our parents.
So when we instill these meanings, into the brain for ourselves, that we have to learn more about our own religion, so that we're comfortable,
that we're comfortable in our own skin, but because of the fact that much of the Muslim world was colonized
by the West by Western nations, and then they,
in Yanni, because there was a defeatist mentality we lost, we were colonized.
That means that they must be better. And that created a degree of an inferiority complex.
Whereas what they have is better, they're more advanced, and these particular areas and technology or whatever it is, so they are better than this, therefore, we begin to follow them.
And also they do, and that external following will eventually lead to a change of the inside.
Because the outside the way a person appears, does definitely have an effect on what they do. When they begin to believe in the Prophet it is even pointed to the fact when he commanded the people to do one straighten up their rooms in the salon
or what, but you probably felt a lot of pain for a long pause your hearts to be divided that external division leads to an internal division as well. So, we have to be careful of that, when we look at this issue of tissue confirm or imitating the non Muslim paradox depend on the data most best, some kind of a lover will come to the channel, whether that answer self is going to be like with a question.
Yes, can we decipher the subject the fact of life?
As much I was,
I was making a difference and it
just it was a web blast, good project,
is a mineral
benefit portfolio. So
Okay, Can Can you summarize the question? Please?
make it shorter? What exactly is the question? Okay, the question is, like, Why are you giving people
your pencil from them? And the answer
is a Christian.
We advise you not to go to a church attend a fifth. But the question is,
if you live amongst a land, that if you live in a land where the majority of the people are Christian, and you have superiors that he at work,
and your superior dies, he's a Christian, he's going to go to his funeral is going to be at the church. Is it permissible for us to attend the funerals? That's such a question. And the answer is, what is going to happen at that church, other than they are going to speak about what they don't know about, meaning they're going to, you know what happens they say,
they're going to praise Jesus for making this person from the people in Paradise and he's in heaven, looking down on us now to them, the apostle doesn't subject himself to that and if they're your superiors, allies or jealous over them and your pleasure, you're pleasing.
Eliza would tell us to come before you pleasing any other human beings. Now, you can visit the family of that person outside of the church, you can send your condolences and these type of things, but going into a church, where other than Allah subhana wa, tada is worship. In fact, it's been established for the worship of other than a lot of parents out there, and then to go, where they're going to be wailing. And they're going to be saying about a love that which they don't know. And you have to sit there and be silent. This is against our practice as Muslims, we don't subject ourselves, we don't subject ourselves to be in the company, of people who are talking about a lunch
pail died in that manner, and we don't have the ability to the least correct them to the best of our knowledge in the best of our ability again, you can visit the value, you can send your condolences and delights because going to the church is not permissible.
forces us to be like this and we are
forced by them. Is
there something wrong with what you're wearing right now? Is that permissible? That's not a permissive one is that what you're wearing is fine.
is fine. The main tag is fine. I don't know why you posted us.
Because what he is
what he is asking you to wear is permissible in this thing. So you can wear it.
But we have a question about celebrating anniversaries anniversary of America, the Americans are white. And this is one of
the issues of
anniversaries, birthdays, and those things which we would consider to be
things that are going to be different and ruling that those things as we wish would be considered to be
national holidays, if you will, for the holidays have a broad group of people. So, whether that is Christmas or Easter or Thanksgiving and some may even distinguish between those which are religious in nature, my Christmas and Easter and those which are not religious in nature. So they say like Thanksgiving, for example, or a mother's day or something like this, that is celebrated by God the large numbers of the society.
I don't like to answer this question with permissibility or impermissibility. Because there is a genuine degree of
difference of opinion when it comes to the personal celebrations when it comes to personal celebration as religious celebration of these impermissible without a doubt, Christmas and Easter these type of things are permissible for a Muslim to not celebrate those particular days in the manner that they are celebrated by the non Muslims as for national holidays, and also convinced that these are
permissible for Muslims to indulge
because they are at ease with the end of the day and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam assigned for us to these two things. The problem is like we said
Yanni prescribed for this whole month, and they were not specific. Danny, if you look at even that was the process on came to Medina. And it's a family body alone. Jana narina doesn't probably some found the people
celebrating that and it wasn't it wasn't specifically a religious holiday. It doesn't seem from the text that it was a religious holiday event. It was the day that they celebrated and they played them amuse themselves and so on. Right. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Allah has substituted those days with two other days either an eagle Right, so the EDA for the Naval Academy
as it relates to the personal date.
I don't have a strong opinion either way on that. So I'm not going to answer that question in that manner, whether it's permissible or impermissible.
If your child
is looking forward to their birthday,
more than they are looking forward to the event and we have a problem.
We have an identity crisis.
If your wife is looking forward to the anniversary, more than she is looking forward to the weather that is either read aloud we have an identity crisis as Muslims. Because these two days are the two days that have been legislated by Islam that we celebrate.
And if any other celebration goes beyond that, then we are as Muslims we are definitely taking from a another culture and superimposing it upon our culture in a manner that melts our own identity. So we have to be very careful that low.
Play was the question.
So the question is, is it permissible for a person who is saying in Medina, to assume or to put on the garments for come on here to Medina, to make muscle and prepare for a bomb from Medina and then once they get the link for what they call it, that they actually think the intention from there and yes, that is permissible, and perhaps it is even recommended. And that is what some of the companions used to do is they will prepare here in Medina.
Gianni here you're going to for example, you'll take a shower or muscle in your hotel, you're going to put on the towel, the garments, and then once you actually get to go into labor, then you're about to leave for labor headed to Mecca. And that is when you're going to save a big alohomora.
And that is going to be the beginning of your online shell on tech.
Afternoon live on Father's accomplice, children are on the same house. Okay. He wants to know, how can you get you're just telling them to shave and everything like that.
So, the question to make it as simple as possible, is that they are children, who are adherence to the Sunnah of the prophet is allowed to say, and their father does not adhere to the Sunnah and many different aspects of the Sunnah of the prophet is when I do see them and is angry at the children for following the symbol. For example, they have beards, and the father wants them to shave their beards that correct? How do we advise so the best thing that you do the first of all, for the children, for the children.
Again, if the principle is some multiple times, there is no obedience to the creation. If it involves this obedience to the Creator,
that does not give them the right to talk to their father any kind of way, this is important to the same, because sometimes children have more than their parents that that happens about many aspects of life, they may know what that does not give them the right the right to deal with their parents in a in a disrespectful manner.
Even if it calls even if it's about when, in fact, the child might be what's known as the parent is a Catholic, that does not give them the right to disrespect their parents. They don't obey their parents and those things which which, you know, contradict dissent. But they don't have the right along with them to disrespect their parents.
As a prophet, it is
considered before the windy day No need to be disrespectful and dutiful to the parents to be one of the greatest sense aptitude. So we have to be very careful about that. Now, how can we advise the father
again here, but if an external party comes in especially because a lot of times parents just can't accept things, no matter what they raised them, they changed his diapers. They taught them everything they know. They changed their own life for their children.
So it's very difficult, you know for them to accept, but to take an external party, someone else to come and advise the province they listen, first of all, our Prophet is allowed to send ghanians, we just want to talk about the manner that the Prophet is allowed to send them, ordered us, and more than five different heavy with five different narration to grow our beards, to leave our beards alone to not touch the beard, five different areas.
So don't tell your children to do something that goes against what our beloved message on a solid I was
doing this as part of testifying that he is the Messenger of Allah, we testify that he is rasulillah, we are testifying that he didn't come save this because the Arab use of the data because he wanted us to know, but because this is revelation from Allah.
So your Creator, your Creator, wants you to leave your facial hair alone,
to grow your beard and to cut your mustache. So you should do that. Because you create a one,
I took my son to the best of your ability, surprise him to, to follow the Sunnah of the messenger so lightly, because this is part of his love of Allah and part of his love of the Messenger of Allah.
None of you believes until I become more beloved to him than his parents, his children and all of manga.
But the question is, why don't we find some muscles and their children who celebrate Christmas celebrate Halloween to celebrate these national holidays? And the answer is two answers.
One reason could be simply because they don't know. They don't know anybody.
And they think that because we are taught that society
isn't American, or British or Australian, or whatever it may be, that it's fine to do what everybody else in that society is doing. And a lot of times, they also don't recognize the the connotations of that particular holiday that they are celebrating what's behind this holiday why people celebrate this holiday anniversary. That's the first lot of times they don't know. The The second reason
is because they're scared.
They're scared to be labeled as different.
And because they don't want to be labeled as different.
Or because they feel like the virus, Instagram myself
eating turkey and cranberry, you know,
then people won't leave them in extremists anymore, you don't have this big beard. And the sprayer mark is big, as you know,
two quarters of my head
that the people know now they won't label me to stream it because I have proof and prove it just like you guys do. I cut Turkey and eat macaroni and cheese on Thanksgiving just like everybody else. So they don't want to be late.
And because of that, and because they're scared,
or because they don't want their children to be to feel different. But
go out and Trick or treat and these types of things like this.
Because this year, they don't want to be the that's the secretary. A third reason is because unfortunately,
there are some
people who have a degree of knowledge and who are in front of the people and get them hooked by the classes and the lights that they encourage people to do this be part of society and go out and trigger treat and, you know, so
they encourage them to do this because they say that there's no contradiction between our national identity and our identities as Muslims and that's true. That's true.
Meaning that there's nothing wrong with being a Western nationality being a Muslim. There's nothing wrong with that. Where there comes a contradiction. Then you put your theme first. up first, so you're going to the same from doing things that other people might do.
Even though it's okay for them, because it looks to be harmless. And then the the last reason, the last reason
is that they simply just don't believe that this is permanent.
As it relates to the religious, the religious
celebrations, if you will,
that they believe that there is a benefit, for example, in many of them may not have been possible before. And so by going to thanks, boys celebrating Christmas, we keeping family ties with some friends and other excuses that they give themselves with knowing what they want to do a lot while we're on that subject check. You know how some families when I celebrate Ramadan, they put up lights, and they put up my slides? And
I've tried to tell them, it's not good. No, no, no.
That's not something that's specific to the mouse.
That's something that all of the muscles work. And that has ceased, even if it was at one point, even if it was at one point in time, before however many years that that was something that was specific to what's done in Christmas, that is no longer specific that is done all over the store. The issue lights?
they let the last question, I'll take the rest of them back.
There's no other place for them besides the church.
that's the only place that they can congregate. And that's the only place that they can congregate. And it's permissible
as long as they should try to find an area because
most churches, most churches have not specifically not just have a, I don't know what they call this a sanctuary or whatever. And a lot of times, there are other rooms, activity rooms, and so on and so forth. They should try to stay out of the area where there's crosses and pictures of these types of things. Depending on what kind of church it is because a lot of the Protestant churches don't have crosses on the first pictures in the first place.
They should look for an area that they don't agree not a lot, if that's the only place available otherwise, if they can find somewhere else, then it's better for them to congregate in the area was not is not going to beat that down.
I'm not saying
I'm not saying that that's the only message that locality that they still get together. But what I'm saying I'm saying it doesn't have to be necessarily a church that might be an auditorium at a school it might be in usually there's multiple
options, but if that is the only option, then they have to congregate below
active active the best of luck.
