If you learn something, that's knowledge, you need to spread that. And that's something that you may benefit from Africa death ability, or like sadly, but it will cost right now. And it's great is benefiting from the fact that we're learning this heading, and that we're seeking refuge in the last fantana. With these words that he taught his son taught the rest of the month, you don't know perhaps you teach someone that's still out, and they teach someone else and it goes on and he may be getting reward rewarded, and you agree with 1000 years from now, 2000 years from now because of something that you thought was was sinful. And the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said, perhaps
one of you just says a word, a good word that a lost without a love, even though he needs it to be insignificant, and a loss of data because of it raises intelligence. So we shouldn't take these things like to learn the learn these two out and teach it to others like
you from an adjuvant, powered by
take a one by one Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from cowardice and Jupiter, and Jupiter, which which,
incidentally, is the same word for cheese in Arabic. And some people if you go online, they translated I seek refuge in You from cheese below.
And that's the importance of actually having some understanding of the deep
eliashib refuge in You from cowardice from any of the weaker meaning jubin
and I seek refuge in You from okay and this is the second thing I seek refuge in You from a book which is in translate.
and I seek refuge in You from being returned to civility. Yeah. Okay. And I seek refuge in You from an aura that Isla our aroma, which is which is comes from the Quran. And it means going, it means going back to a decrepit age. Why does it say going back? What happens when a person gets older,
they start getting
weaker and weaker and weaker. When a person is first born, they're weak, and then they get what? stronger and stronger and stronger until they hit it. So they hit a pinnacle. They hit a high point and then they get weaker and weaker and weaker. He's seeking refuge and going back to a beach state. When you become decrepit, where now you are just like a child. You have to have someone change your diapers, even though you're a grown man or grown woman. And so the prophets like Selim, teaches us to seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala. From this.
And okay, and we'll talk about that tomorrow is that it's important that we understand these concepts and why we seek refuge in the last fantana from these things, but but that will be put tomorrow's discussion because we're only going to cover the first two today. That's number three, by the way,
from big metal,
and I seek refuge in You loud, the bigger mean fits nothing dunion, the trials and the afflictions in the temptations of this life.
the punishment of the grave. Now we see data from I'd have a couple of times, today, we're going to focus on number one, and number two,
and it's due I starts out like this Allahumma in the bigger if you can memorize that right there. That's going to recur four times and just do it. And in fact, this whole book is dedicated to
how to seek refuge in the loss of humans out of the blue eyes of the prophet SAW you celebrate him sought refuge in a lot. So the majority of these do I start off with Allahumma?
Because a lot of money.
Alright, so if you can memorize that part, then that's half the battle. All right. And by the way, this book for those of you who can, can look for it, can you read the title of the book,
it's called, explanation of suffocation.
related to seek refuge, okay, explanation of supplications from the prophets of light in the southern This is a six part series, explanation and seeking rough explanation of supplications of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And then each one of the six is dedicated to something different. So this one is dedicated to seeking refuge in a loss of habitat because the prophets like Selim had a number of sub locations where he sought refuge in the last minute at some of them are dedicated to one series is dedicated to a thought a survival mindset. Those who either the prophets of light or some specifically made in the morning time
And then the evening time another one is dedicated to what are known as comprehensive do I. Okay, so it's a six part series, directly taken from the book in Arabic knowledge. As well as come in a video even though a little bit of Arabic, it's a book quartet it's called fifth and as well as car by our shape I'm gonna have the muscle and better who also teaches here in the profits mentioned and it was translated by Jacob Mohammed of the Royal champion, who's a graduate from the College of howdy here in Medina.
The first the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, Oh Allah, barely I seek refuge in You from cowardice. Until seeking refuge from cowardice which is the opposite of
courageousness Okay, so let's stop here. Allahumma in need Vika mina juban. Alright, I want you to save a lot of money
in the beaker,
in me out of the beaker.
mean l joven.
mean I'll drop it. Okay. Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from cowardice.
Allah, I seek refuge in You from being a coward from being scared when there is no reason to be scared.
This doesn't mean that if you are on a safari tour, and you see in lion or something like that, he's very close. If you shouldn't be scared, it's talking about being a coward. You see something in front of you. That's not right.
And you have the ability to say something, or change it and you don't. And you don't be why not because you think is going to lead to a greater harm, but because you're just scared. Because you are more scared of that person than you are fearing of Allah subhanho wa Taala and standing in front of him for not doing what is right.
And so you find some people
won't pray on time.
Maybe their work and they don't want to Why? Because they're scared of what their co workers are going to say. I owe the weekend and a German alarm in the weekend. When a German Oh Allah seek refuge in You from cowardice. That's cowardice. Now,
which is the opposite, which is the opposite up as our shake says, being courageous.
of doing this is the result of a weak heart, okay?
Where does cowardice come from? It comes from a weak heart.
And that and that is why we seek refuge in Allah from cowardice, because a person who truly embodies the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, His heart is attached to Allah, he fears Allah alone. He hopes in his reward from Allah Subhana, which Allah alone, he loves a lot as a joke, like he loves nothing else.
He's not going to shy away from doing whatever needs to be done, so that he can practice his need, so that he can help others practice of him so that he can call to the Dean of a loss of a child, because he loves a lot. So juggling any fears or loss.
And he's not worried about what is going to come as the result of doing what is right. Whereas a person who does not have that shrink, they're always trying to be people pleasers.
They want to please this one, or please that one at the expense of pleasing the last panel Jilin, that's towers, that's cowardice nothing.
This is the result of a weak heart and the beautiful nature. And this is one of blameworthy characteristics which are not befitting to be found any movement, a believer is not account. It just doesn't mix. And if you feel like that, if you feel any cowardice when you feel scared, say Allah in do you become in a look, if our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam who received revelation from Allah subhanaw taala if he taught his companions to make this do you just have to imagine Oh, my God, the Allahu Tagore and who was making this guy?
Right, who was nothing of a coward and he made this to advocates. This is reinforcing. Reinforcing his shujaa is his courage. And then he is attached to Allah subhana wa Tada. Nice.
All right, so back to that first part of the drive memorize it Allahumma in the Vika Amina book and if you can't save
mean a book that saved from cowardice. Just make sure you make it a part of your routine.
Now we get to book a lot many hours a week. I mean, I was given a lot of seed revenue from cowardice.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam is saying, and I seek refuge in a new from an open stinginess, until seeking refuge from stinginess. Hello again, again, oh ally seek refuge in You from unbuckled from being stingy. Daddy, a believer is not stingy.
It's repetitive in it manifests itself in different ways. It manifests itself in different ways, the opposite of and so when you're seeking refuge in a law from something you it's inclusive, and it implies that you are asking for the opposite and opposite of being stingy as one. being generous, being generous. So you're asking a lot of candidates either, along with seeking refuge in Him for being stingy, that allies who have less than you to be generous. And as we're in this month of Ramadan, we should be looking towards always trying to embody the characteristics of the people of taqwa
and a loss of hair, which are added on multiple occasions when he describes them people have tough one to four eyes. He describes them as people who give from what he has provided them. They're generous.
If you look at the first description of the people of tough one to Brian, where does it come?
out of claiming that he can keep tabs on graffiti? Who got
out of Miami? That is the Book about which there is no doubt it is guidance for who, for the McDuffie, you say in this month, you're fasting so that you will be hungry. You're fasting so that you can be thirsty, when you fast and so that you can attain tafawa Allah Subhana Allah says about the matcha tea in Alinea, Yo,
what up Muna salanter warming
up for those who believe in unseen they establish a salon and from we from what We have provided them they want they spent
the last month that is is about the heavens, about about gentlemen, the width of witches, the heavens and the earth. It's been prepared a little choppy. That's the matcha tea. It has been prepared for the Mk II, what's the first thing he says about the book tepee alladhina young people in the face of law law, those who spend at times of prosperity in times of adversity, you can't be thinking of people. Number two, it doesn't work.
If a person is stingy, they're stingy stinginess is taking away from their tough one.
There is a reciprocal relationship there. So if a person, the more generous a person becomes, then the more they are fulfilling that aspect of a tough one
seeking refuge from sneakiness, which is the old back that which is obligatory or not nine to one, okay, which is the whole back that which is obligatory. This is the worst form of thingies to withhold that which is obligatory pile, the wealth that Illustrated's Allah has blessed you with.
There are rights attached to that wealth, meaning that it is not all yours.
Part of it is the cans. So if you have any surplus wealth, any savings that you've had, that you held for over a year, you have to pay the candle that well, if not, you are being the healer, you're being stingy.
Likewise, if you're married, your wife has rights over, you have to spend on your wife, you have to spend on your children, you may have to spend on your parents depending on what their income is. And depending on what your income is. These, this may be an obligatory form of spending. So you're seeking refuge in a loss of candidates either from being miserly
or denying the one who bears the surplus that one has with him. So a person may ask for well, and you and you know that this situation or at least you don't know that they are unjustly begging some people and unfortunately in some countries, it's almost like a mafia operation where there's a person at the head of the of the organization, they cut off the limbs of children and they make them go back
and that they take the they take the the wealth from those children and maybe just give them enough
So that they can live on.
We're not talking about those types of apps, are you talking about somebody who genuinely needs and he asks you, and you have surplus wealth, that you don't prevent them from that, that you give them what you can, no
more than one does not give anything.
Or perhaps one doesn't give anything, any, at all of his wealth he uses for himself. He doesn't do anything to show any kind of generosity. And you know, those kinds of people who,
when you go out with them to eat or something like that,
they've never gonna pay you already know before you go out, they're never going to foot the bill.
Best case scenario, they go Dutch and no offense to the Dutch people like
that that's not a good quality. And it doesn't mean it doesn't mean that you should be the one that pays all the time or that the other person is the one that pays all the time. But there shouldn't be that kind of apprehension
to be generous somehow and especially during the month of Ramadan especially during the month of Ramadan. But But again, Ramadan is not something that that comes and goes and we're and we go back to who we were before Ramadan, Ramadan is the time where we improve inshallah we develop good habits. Yeah, we're gonna we're the heightened level in Ramadan, but it doesn't mean that, you know, you're stingy before Ramadan, Mashallah Ramadan comes, you're generous, and then you go back to being stingy, you know, Ramadan should help change certain aspects of, of your character.
And this is from the characteristics or qualities which are not, that is to withhold your wealth to be stingy. This is also not from the characteristics of the buildings. And one of the most high said,
and that those who convinced me withhold that which Allah has bestowed on them on his bounty wealth, think that it is good for them. So they will not pay the obligatory said that they, it will be worse for them, that they would say, oh, withheld shall be tied to their neck collar on the Day of Resurrection man. So that's because a lot of data here, and this is something that comes frequently,
a lot from the data here saying, don't let those people who thinks that, that by being stingy,
that they're actually gaining wealth. And that's what happens a lot of time a person thinks that, okay, if I don't pay for dinner, when we all go out, then I'm going to actually be saving some money. Now, if you do it, to please the last round of data, that you are, in fact, depositing that money. And you're here after which is where you really need that commodity. In this life. You know, money comes and goes, there are people who are rich one day for the next and they're rich again. And that's just the nature of life. But it's more important about what's going to happen when you eat a lunch dependable, which I like.
Again, and I didn't realize we were going to take this much time with it. But I think it's important that we recognize, especially in this tremendous month of Ramadan, the importance of calling upon a loss.
You know, for those of you who may catch, sometimes you find that a person starts out on alpha and is very enthusiastic, or they prey, the horror and acid and buying. And then he goes and he's making.
And he's pouring his heart out. And after 10 minutes, he doesn't know what else to say.
And it's still five hours left.
And he's done. He doesn't he doesn't know what to say what to ask the last panel data for the more of these prophetic do I that you've memorized? It's going to take you if you memorize the prophetic, it will take you a couple of hours just to get through. take you a couple of hours just to get through the prophetic video. So you take it step by step and learn them more and more and it will help you in your ability to call upon Allah subhanaw taala in the way that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did other than that, as we spoke about yesterday, there is nothing that is equivalent to the God that comes from the heart. And to do it comes from me. And that comes from a real recognition
that you are
that you are nothing. And that allows you to add as others. I mean, he's the one who has everything in his hand is the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There's nothing that you could want that he can't give you
panel looks at whether it's tangible or intangible. And so that that comes from a real recognition of your need of a last panel data is the drive that is most likely to get accepted by Allison Hamilton.
He then today's do is the part that we took along the aisle to becoming a jubin. Over the weekend, I mean, it's pretty easy memorizing data, and then we'll pick up on the rest of tomorrow. Today, inshallah. Tada, we're going to cover chapter 11, from exam to Haynes
chapter number 11. Make no animal sacrifice for online a place where sacrifices made for other than Allah, okay, okay. Yesterday, we talked about slaughtering and we said that slaughtering was four types. Anybody remember that?
Okay, yes, number one, In the name of Allah, for the sake of Allah data. In other words, when we say for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, it is a sacrifice. It's not intended for the meat, you can eat from it. You can give away you know what you want from it. But that is not the intention of the sacrifice. It's in the name of Allah. And it's for last time, the second time Yes.
Okay, In the name of Allah, but for the sake of other than a loss of time. So, the person may save this land on his tongue, but he is actually intending this as a core or as a as a means of devotion to something else, other than others, other than a loss of life number three, yes.
Right, for other than not, in the name of other than a loss of data. For other than a lie. This is still done today, commonly amongst the mushrikeen, where they slaughter in the name of whatever idle it is that they are slaughtering for life, the fourth type
in the name of alarm for some permissible purpose, it's not a sacrifice, it's in what's intended from it is, is the meat what's intended from the meat. Okay, so in this chapter,
that chapter dealt with the actual slaughter itself.
This chapter deals with where the slaughter takes place.
Okay, and this is actually an important point to note because there's some other things that I think are directly related to it that we may deal with on a you know, on a fairly consistent basis. So the title is law you bet holy land the mechanic knew he knew it law
or law yet back. There's two ways that you can say the levy McKenna you better be the lady, that is that no sacrifice
for Allah. That's category number one.
No sacrifice for Allah is to be made in a place
where sacrifice to other than Allah is made.
Okay. In other words, it is not permissible
for a believer in the oneness of Allah subhana wa tada
a person until he his slaughtering the actual slaughter itself is In the name of Allah and His for lust and attack.
That part is fine, but he cannot do it in a place where other than Allah Subhana Allah is sacrificed for so
it's similar a lot fantana says
warm up hi Anna initial warm up had a lot of hands either in shorts and make the money in the very beginning of the third when he starts talking about the type of meat that you cannot eat
the type of meat that you can't eat, he says one man to be had and
that which has been
slaughtered at the alters Jani, the altars of the idolaters so they have some type of pillars that they may set up where they slot that which was slaughtered at the altar is not permissible to even get the if I'm allowed to add any stuff here. He says even if it was slaughtered in the name of Allah.
The issue is not how it was started. It's what where it was started, where it was going. Alright, so yeah, and nobody, nobody's gonna come and say, if a person sorters philosophy data at this type of place, then it should take some outside of the folder with Sam. No, but we'll see why it is prohibited the live data as we go a little bit through the chapter and shutdown time like so.
the point here from the chapter heading is simply to to understand that you cannot slaughter in these places like
there are two reasons that the scholars mentioned. And then they tell us that it will get down to the proofs, which are that one eye and one, Heidi, but there are two main reasons why you cannot slaughter at this place.
The first is because it constitutes imitation of the machine. And this is a place where it is known that they sacrifice. So why would a believer go to that place and sacrifice
that is external invitation. And there's a general rule in Islam. As a matter of fact, as a general rule of life, you know, how we say invitation is the highest form of what a flattery invitation, the fact that somebody copies you in doing something is a form of flattery, it shows that they, that they like what you're doing. And so even if a believer doesn't have that intention, the external image imitation of the idolaters
graduate gradually will lead to some type of internal agreement.
All right, and check me out on him alone. He has a an entire book dedicated to that topic of imitating the non Muslims. Anybody know the name of that book? If the lock, sit on the feet.
Okay, and that book is extremely important, especially for students with knowledge to go with the issue here is what that external imitation usually leads to one. Some type of internal agreement comradery to penalize think about.
Think about how a police officer
looks at you when you're wearing it, though.
What's, what's the difference between you and me? He's Muslim.
All it's different is you're wearing as though he's wearing a police uniform type. If you took it off, and you put on a police uniform, what would he do?
give you all types of readings. And based on what based on the the external? external has a major effect on think about think about your child and your child? How he behaves. Okay. You buy him a camouflage outfit, and he puts it on once you start doing right away. He turns into a military. You know, he turns he's from the army from the Marines right away soon as he puts the puts the outfit on. Because that external has it has an effect on the internal and we shouldn't deny it. I mean, this is common sense. A lot of people it doesn't matter what I went No, it doesn't matter what you wear. It does. And so it's important that we that we recognize this, again, we're not talking about
here. Oh, it's it's haram to wear, you know, a suit and tie or anything like that? No, we can. That's a totally different discussion. And I'm talking about the the what we're talking about here is not denying the fact that external imitation does lead to even if it's over time, and even if it's granted some type of internal agreements. Okay, so that's number one. That's why you don't slaughter, where it is known that the Muslim king or the idolaters sacrifice for their gods, their deities, right, that's the first. The second thing, the second reason is that you want to cut off all doors,
all avenues that need to shake. So as we talked about yesterday, category, categories two and three,
slaughtering in the name of a law book or other than the law or soldering, in other than the name of a lawn for other than a law, that both of these are considered to be major forms of should, because sacrificing his worship, if to dedicate worship to other than Allah subhanaw taala is what it should. So you, Islam has come to cut off the avenues that lead to Sure. And here even though this person is starting in the name of Allah, he's, he resembles what he's resembling the people who are slaughtering for their deities. And so we wouldn't want somebody now to copy this Muslim who's doing it and do it for other than electronic data and therefore he has been a cause of needing someone
else to Sure.
All right, so you stay away from those places where other than Allah subhanho wa Taala is
worship, this is what is being covered in this particular chapter. And the author says, Be my Canon, he says a place. And
here, what I what I think is important to mention is that there are two types of places being referred to. One is an exact location, a precise location. This particular place on the map is where these idolaters sacrifice for their deities, that's one type of place. The other type of place is not an exact location. But it takes on a description.
So, for example, it was common practice up until not too long ago, and I'm not talking about 300 years ago, less than it, it was common practice that if someone was sick,
that a family member amongst the heirs that a family member would take a sheet to where they weren't to their house or wherever it is that they were being treated for their sickness, and they would slaughter
the sheep at that particular place. Do you know why?
Because they believe
that it was the gin that got the person sick
and so they were slaughtering for the gin
as a means of telling the ginta Okay, leave him alone now. We've sacrificed for you which is no doubt should have been. And it's a major form of circuit takes that person outside of the following slang. This is not an exact location. It's a location based on description in other words, close to someone who is sick. So if that was prevalent in a society, then a believer should not go slaughter for Allah subhana wa tada at that place because it's resembling the acts of those who have committed ship with the loss of habitat and we are now on that part like let's go to the proofs. There are two proofs that the author mentioned one is the ayah and the other is a heady man
the salesman problem be exalted do not stand in a comfy leather company here
Bucky and he
never a month founded upon my the from the first day is worthier of you're standing in it. Alright, let's follow let's travel this What does this have to do with slaughter? Follow us step by step. He says a last minute it says do not stand in it ever. What is it referred to do not stand in it ever
messed it up the raw messages of the raw. Okay. So that that's mentioned in the previous store prior to to this I do not stand in it ever. Eliza gel is telling his messengers so the light was on them do not stand in that message. That message was known as massive FBR. It was built near Mr. Cooper. Okay. Not close to Mr. Cooper, which is that direction. So and it was built by a monastic
who work by the punia avamere.
And his cohorts, if you will, they built this semester, even though it was right by Mr. Cooper. It was right by Mr. Cooper. And they built a claiming, claiming that Oh, they just want to make it you know, easier for people to pray and so on and so forth. But he was actually telling them to build their base, this was going to be the base from which they used to attack the prophet Isaiah select from Sudan and his companions, and he went to he went off to Shin
you know, re to Syria, and they stayed behind building this semester. And so they wanted the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to pray. And then
why do you think that is? validation? To give them credibility? Yes, you know, we're really building this especially for love and allies with Joseph Allah josyula v ever don't ever, ever stand in that place in that Mr. Let me see Do you see Salah tuck woman over the only a half will enter
a message in the message that was established upon tougher from the first day
has more, right that you stand in it. It's worthy of your standing in, fight to things
That needs to be mentioned here.
That message that illustrates either told the prophets of light it was Sunday night to stand in.
He also describes it as being built for more, however, of Allah and His messenger to go to war with the law in his message. And so the masjid was established for Mercia to disobey Allah Subhana, which is
the opposite of a taqwa. Whereas the last mentality said the masjid that has been established upon taqwa has more of a right that you're doing that you say that it is worthy of your standing in it. And that message that has been established upon top one, the scholars of Tafseer, some of them say, Mr. kubek.
Why, because Mr. Cooper was the first message that was built here in Medina.
And the majority of them say is the message of the profits align with some dimensions that we're in this is the message that is designed a tough one that was built upon a tough one, and neither and both of them were established upon top. So last year, data says that you have, that it's worthy of your standing in that feed.
And these are men who will be purified. And yes,
those who write in that message, it allows for dialysis as in meaning, to buy or invest in another week, there are men who like to purify themselves. And Allah Subhana, tada loves them, meaning those who, who purify themselves and will idea by him or her alongside one of the great Tabby, he said, it is a good thing to purify yourself with water, purify yourself with water will do and listen and so forth. He said, But, but those who purify themselves and this time are those who purify themselves from sin.
They purify themselves from sin. And so when we think about purification, we shouldn't just think about the ritual purification or the purification that is physical, or we should also recognize that spiritual purification to purify oneself from sin, fight this particular Ayah does it mention anything about sacrificing?
No. Does it mention anything about not sacrificing in a place where the idolatry sacrifice?
Not directly, not directly, but there's a clear PS here. And that is that
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was prohibited
from standing in a place that had been one that had been built for the disobedience of Allah subhana wa.
Likewise, and so he was prohibited lad to come free, he evident don't stand in it.
That word standing usually means what? A lot of times a lot of times when we hear it and like for example,
the privacy Some say whoever stands Ramadan, he man and what he said was true faith and seeking the Lord reward Allah will forgive him of his sins. I mean, you stand up the whole month of Ramadan, you don't sit down, you don't go to sleep. You stand up the whole time. What does it mean? It means to pray it means prayer, whoever stands prophesy, some said Laila terracotta. Amen. And what she said, I hope you know, that
whatever stands in the night, later together with the true faith in Allah subhanaw taala. Seeking is rewarding will be forgiven for all of his previous sins. Amazing stands up the entire night. We see what he brings laughter comfy evidence, we don't ever pray in that nest. So the same way that the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was prohibited from worshiping Allah. prophets prayer was going to be for him for a loss of habitat. Of course,
the same way he was prohibited from praying to Allah in a place that had been established for the disobedience of Allah
is the same way you should not do an act of worship for Allah and a place that was established for disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala, including sacrifice. So you should not sacrifice to Allah in a place that has that has been established for the worship of other than a lunch countdown. I think the analogy is clear in the laptop, like similarly, our Prophet is like listening, he said, led to some tension issue. I don't
want to salute lay hands I
don't sit on the graves and do not pray to them. don't pray in the direction. Sorry. don't pray in the direction of the grace pipe.
don't pray to who in the direction.
don't pray to Allah
in the direction of agreement, so that the outside appearance is not that you are praying to the grace because there are people who pray to the graves. And so the prophets of light in the sun does not want us to imitate those people. And he doesn't want there to be any confusion from the external perspective. And this is important that we
understand this, this point, because we're not talking about direct forms of shirt here.
But we're talking about things that may lead to Sure. In Islam cuts those avenues. Closest those doors. It's actually one of the objectives of the [???]ty act is to cut those doors that lead to that which is common man.
Haven't even the hat or the
man made about the sacrifice that Campbell at a place called a winner. So we asked the Prophet about it. He said, The place of any idol of Jamelia, which was worship there the answers, I noticed the first question, let's take it let's take a step back, go back to the beginning of the habits even the hand or the Allahu tanunda. And he said that a man
made a vow to slaughter a camel at a place known as bleda.
When south of Mecca
and so he went to the Prophet la so I can sit down.
anyway he was questioning, you know, should he fulfill this vow that he made? Like
any of you heard people make vows before?
Many of you heard people make vows before. Why do people usually make vows?
They want something from and when something from a loss of habitat.
And so they say Oh Allah, if you cure my mother out fast for, you know, a month, faster, two months, three months out the year or something like that. And tomorrow and shall outside and we'll talk about the ruling of vowels and these types of things mainly, because it's the next chapter. I just want you to understand the concept of a bow. So this man made a vow to Allah subhana wa tada that he would slaughter a camel that he was sacrificed the camel at one
which is this place out there. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says to him, listen, listen to this question and clearly read the question again. What do you say to him? In the place have any idle on Jamelia? Which was worship there? Listen to that the prophecy sound said
it. Were you talking about slaughtering this camera?
Is was this a place where the machete cool? used to slaughter the animals? Where is this where they used to sacrifice for they got? That's the first question. Yes. Second question. They answered No. The Prophet asked again. Is the believers hold any of their aid to the believers?
believers in any of their eighth recurring pessimistic festivities there? They answer the second question is what is this a place where they used to hold their festivities? The emotional key?
And they said
they said no, no, they answered No. Okay. So the question to the privacy center was about what fulfilling a a vow
but before the privacy some answered that question, he wanted to make sure that this place What didn't have any any sacrificial worship to idols that was being done there. And it wasn't a place where the Muslim Muslim keen held their festivities light. So then the prophesied some answers the question and he said,
I was messenger Dan said
there is no feeling of disobedience.
He said what fulfill your vows, for there is no fulfillment of a vow that was made in disobedience to Allah, another words, had that place been a place where idols
were sacrificed. If one where sacrifice was made to idols, or where the festivities of the idolaters were performed, then that would be disobedience to slaughter in that place, and therefore you would not have to fulfill that vow. Even though
Fulfilling vows is obligation. If you make a vow to Allah, you have now made that thing obligatory upon yourself not.
Nor is there no one that is beyond the person's capacity, right that person does not fulfill about that is beyond their capacity. This I think was collected by
the conditions of verification.
Okay, so this I need to just say,
I want us to kind of grasp what's going on here that is in the hat on the lower end, says that this man came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and asked him about slaughtering this animal in Blenheim. Okay.
The reason why the Prophet i think is salatu salam asks him is because that seems abnormal, that you would make most people if they,
if they vow, right.
They say Oh, love you sure. My father, for example, I'll slaughter an animal, or I'll slaughter a sheep, it doesn't say in a specific place.
Or they might say I'll make it a T calf in a less detail Hara, okay. Why did they specify?
Because it's a place that is that is sacred. It's a place that at least as Muslims, we hold it to be a sacred place. So it seems odd that this person is saying I'm going to sacrifice at Glen, what exactly is it about bolena and some other narrations of the heidy the Prophet sallahu wa sallam asked the man if he became a shaman, and generally, it was when you made this vow? Was it because there was something about Jay Z in your heart? In other words, was this a place that the people used to venerate, and gentlemen, and so the man said, No, so the prophets of light is sunset ofI Mina did them fulfill your vows. The point here is that the prophets of light is some specifically asked, Is
this a place where they went, where they slaughtered, what they sacrifice for their items? And then the prophecy someone described it as being massiah. You might see it in them, so to slaughter at that place, even if it's for Allah Subhana Allah alone, it is considered to be this obedience to Allah azza wa jal. Likewise, the eat and why do you think the prophecy someone asked about the eat?
Then the mushnik? Who
did the machico? Were they like Jews? And they had temples
at the time of prophecy, so no, I mean, there was the tablet, which they which, which is where they had many of their items. But they didn't have those kinds of temples. Did they have churches like Christians?
So the prophesied Someone was asking that they take this places and eat because what happens when they eat?
People do what religious acts of worship.
In general, it's not always the case. But there are acts of worship that are done. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, wanted to make sure that this was not a place where idolatrous acts of worship were performed. Because if that was the case, then as Muslims we should avoid, as Muslims, we should avoid. All right. Now,
just to clarify, in Islam, we have how many needs to and to own.
And anything other than that is considered to be an eve of jasmine,
outside of the guidance of Islam, and indeed, as the scholars have mentioned, is anything that recurs on a normal basis, annually, monthly, weekly, we have a weekly eat to
Friday. Okay, so it is recurrent.
The second thing is that there is a public gathering HTML.
Okay, there's a public gathering for it. And the third thing is that there's some normal activity normally worship, but not necessarily that is performed. All right, those three things constitute in the
I'm going to bring up an issue and I want us to look at it
because it's become prevalent amongst Muslims. And then we can revisit it in detail at a later time Chuck
a birthday considered to be an eighth
Okay, so it meets that condition, it's angrily
Let's keep going. Next thing
is that is an HTML.
That is a public gathering, or
as their public gathering for birthday.
It's not a it's not a, it's not something that is celebrated. It's not something that is celebrated by society.
a birthday can be every day. It's not yours, but your neighbors, your cousins.
Right. It's not something that is celebrated by society, when celebrated by society, it would meet that second condition, which is that it is a HTML, that it's a public gathering. So we've fallen out of the category of it being in the eat. Does that now mean that is permissible land.
Just because it's not considered to be an E does not mean that it is permissible to celebrate it. And that is because you have to look at other factors. When we talk about celebrations, you sometimes look at the origin of that celebration, you may also look at the fact that
does, it doesn't have an element of imitating the non Muslims in a manner that is not permissible. So on and so forth. So there are multiple things that you look at, when we talk about new things that have that come up, okay, new holidays, if you will, and the permissibility or impermissibility, of a Muslim participating in those days at the end of the day with Muslims. And we should be proud that the last round of data has given us to eat and wishes suffice. So over the last few years, it has given us as Muslims, and it's enough for us to realize that we don't need to imitate other people's cultures, and make it just make it a part of our culture. When Allah Subhana, Allah has
given us that which is superior. And what happens many times is because of our inferiority complex, as Muslims who have been colonized for hundreds of years, and who have adapted this theory that they are better than us, and we therefore adopt their culture, we then now instill this in our children to the point that they look forward to their birthdays, much more than they look forward to the evening, on the other side of that,
and so we shouldn't even have these kinds of debates permissible. Now. Our D,
our practice of rd are sticking to our Deen constitutes our art,
both in this life and in front of a lost animal. The last issue that I want to deal with, as it relates to this particular chapter, is something that many of you may face, especially if you live in the lands of non Muslims. That is that there may be regulations that prevent you from doing you're up, you're up here you're heading or any of these other things, you can't just do it in your backyard. You have to go to a slaughterhouse and that slaughterhouse may be owned by
non Muslims, and their slaughtering, and their slaughterhouses. Can you can you slaughter in the same slaughterhouses that they slaughter?
Even though we've been prohibited from
sacrificing in a place where other than Allah subhanaw taala sacrifice for you understand the question? So sometimes we may have these rules and laws and society regulations, you can't just buy your sheep, take it to your backyard and slaughter it on either
the neighbor's may call, you know, lni, or whatever. I don't know what you'd call it in
different places, animal control, or whatever else.
Play. So if our only option is to slaughter at a slaughterhouse that's owned by non Muslims, can we do it or not?
understand the question. The answer is yes, you can. And the reason why an ultramarathon knows best is because they're not sacrificing further than last minutes out in those places. Those are commercial slaughterhouses. They're doing it for the meat. And you remember we said there's four categories. The first three are the ones we have to worry about sacrificing, the last one is for me, so even if they slaughter it, you know, and other than the name of Allah Subhana, Allah, whatever way they do it, they're not sacrificing. Those are not sacrifices. Those are slaughtering that's simply slaughtering for meat. And therefore we can go there and sacrifice because it is not known to
be in a place of religious dedication, or veneration in the first place. And the last minutes Allah knows best kind of along with
It always turns into
what was the question from the day before yesterday?
But let me answer the first question that he had.
no back. So the questioner is talking about
issues related to a tip of rook, which is seeking blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada, but specifically, reading the Koran, which is blessed, reading it into, for example, a glass of water, and then having someone else drink that water. That's the first part of the question. And the second part is writing the Quran down on a piece of paper, and then using the forearm
to put on one's body. And I guess you weren't here when we talked about Rukia and ambulance because I've discussed both of them in some, some detail. I'll give you the quick answer right now. Which is that
as was mentioned,
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is the only one that can bless something or put blessing in some off lesson comes from a last animal tab. And the way that we know that something is blessed is through revelation. Because Allah subhana wa tada has not spoken to any of us directly. So we know from His revelation, what he has blessed you know that he blessed the guy but we know that Mecca is blessed, you know they did, the Orion is blessed, you know that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is blessed, and so on.
Secondly, the way that we seek blessings from the Koran,
from the Kaaba, from whatever else we know has been blessed by lots of hands on it has to be in accordance to the teachings of our Prophet is a lot to say.
So the issue of Rukia, for example, and a person reading Koran over someone else, is something that was done during the lifetime of the Prophet it is not to say that it was done by the companions to other companions, it was done by the companions to confirm,
performed Rokia overnight Muslims, it was the Prophet it is selected with CNN, I use it all the time and have performed Rukia for the Prophet civili. It was none of that, to my knowledge included reading the Koran into a glass of water. However, however, that has been established as the practice of some of the companions or the alongside at home, and it became more widespread during the time of the Tabby.
When you find that the campaign is did something not just one, but there are multiple campaigns who have done something, it is impossible to come and say that that thing is an innovation is no doubt that they either took it directly from the teachings of the Prophet sallahu sin and that is that he taught instructed them to do that. Or they understood that from the general texts of Islam, and their understanding is what we strive to follow. As believers we want to understand the text the way that they understood. So the fact that that was practiced that the Brian was read into water, and that water was given to others to drink, then that's a clear indication of the permissibility of
that particular practice and also the penalty to animals as best as for
writing down the Koran and putting it you know, as an amulet wearing it around one's neck or putting it as a you know, a bracelet or whatever other form that a person may use as a talisman or amulet. Then that as we mentioned, there is a difference of opinion amongst the campaign's themselves.
Well the alarm chatter and had said that a person may wear an amulet with the speech of Allah subhana wa sallam back then it was only after a person has been afflicted with something not private.
But many of the other campaigns like EBIT, Masood are the alongside anyone in his entire school.
They help them wearing any type of ammunition from the foreigner other than the Brian was impermissible. Again, as we mentioned in the previous lessons, when there is a difference of opinion amongst the campaigns, it is our duty as Muslims to follow what we believe is closest to the text, and with the text indicate here is that a person should not wear an amulet at all.
And that a person should not hang anything around their neck or wear it around their arm. That's what the text seem to indicate at the same time.
Because that difference of opinion was amongst the companions, it is not permissible for us to come down and be super strict with those who follow another opinion, that was adopted by the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. Not to mention, in this case, I Isha are the China and the mother of the beliefs and the closest of all people to the Prophet, it selected a synonym in terms of proximity. And so here, in this case, though, we say that we should not do that, and that we should avoid it. If someone does it. As long as it is strictly from the speech of Allah Subhan Allah data and nothing else, then it's not something that we should be. You know, again, it's not
something that we should be ultra strict with them about that we should advise them and tell them that that which is closer to the text of the prophet Isaiah select with Sam who mentioned in the authentic it
and not to call it whatever you need not to wear anything around your neck as a charm.
Those general statements of the Prophet is that it was Sadam should be understood to leave it off. All types of amulets will love Wu Tang to Adam the rest of the questions in shallow China will have to postpone until tomorrow. I'll try to make the lesson shorter tomorrow and more time for questions at the end to kind of go along and behind the channel and identify the core to me
