Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim arbitrary surgery were silly Henri de melissani poco de probenecid
Allah inshallah we'll begin from number 21 Bab a celerity Ll hombre de praying the Salah on a small map. Can you read the web and have you
had definite led
led a blue led by a Finnish orbital?
Sulaiman Shivani Avila hypnotoad deden and maimunah bolat cannon abuse a lot more money with them. You sold the island home roti. So hombre preying on a small neck hombre is a small man. So the question is that, is it permissible to lay something on the floor and then pray on it? Or are you supposed to pray your Salah on bare ground? Whatever it is mud, sand, grass, concrete? Is it necessary to pray on it? Or can you play something on the ground to make yourself more comfortable? Because every surface is not suitable for prayer. So over here we have the evidence that it is permissible to pray on something that you put on the ground and it is also permissible to pray on
the ground directly. Whatever is more comfortable for a person. So what's the evidence? Raimundo Anna she narrative college she said can abuse on a la hora de la send them you saw Li Ll hombre, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to pray on a small mat and in the hadith of Arusha Luna Varna as well. hombre was mentioned. And remember that this is not Islam, this is not seeking extra comfort, this is just for ease, so that the prayer does not become a burden on a person. Because sometimes, because if a person is preying on surface that is very uncomfortable, that causes him pain or that causes him disgust or, or takes his attention away. Then how can a person focus on the
Salah next, Bab
allottee Alan rush was innocent Allah Hiroshi ricola good no no so Lima Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for yesterday Adana,
Luna, Luna Allah, I'll be good Mashallah. So a flat e Ll feroce. preying on a bed, what is a feroce? a bed. So that means anything on which a person lays down on in order to sleep in order to recline, it could be a match, it could be a mattress, it could be a wooden bed, anything that is used for sleeping that is used for lying down. Now, what's the condition that the place where a person is praying should be?
Even if there's just a thin barrier between the person and between an agenda that is permissible, but the condition is that the place where a person is going to pray? Okay, the mat, the rug, whatever surface it is, it has to be clean. So likewise, if a person is preying on a bed, then what's the condition that that bed be clean? That doesn't mean that you stand on top of the bed, right? And then you do such over there? No, it's best to pray on the ground. But if there's a reason to pray on the bed, like for example, a person is sick, they're unwell, and they're lying down in their bed or they're sitting on their bed. There's absolutely no harm as long as the place where
they're going to prostrate the place where they're going to do record the place where they're sitting is by
it doesn't matter what is proven for nothing is also permissible for folks unless there's some evidence for salah and asuna, Allah furoshiki and ns Roby Allahu anhu. He prayed on his bed we'll call it and as soon as an asset could nano Solomon Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we used to pray with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by us Judo or huduma Allah sob and one of us would do such that on his clothes, what does this mean? That we would be praying with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and when we would do such them, what would we do we would take our cloth and we would put it on the place where we were supposed to search that and we will do such that on that Why? Because the
ground would be extremely hot as inshallah we will learn or because there were pebbles there was sand. And sometimes if you prostrate on ground that is uneven, it will not allow you to do such that properly. It might even cause you discomfort, and cloth is something that a person sleeps in as well. So this is an evidence that a person can pray on a soft surface on cloth, as long as that cloth is clean. Okay, this is the only condition Heidi's had that the knife, my yellow color.
Destiny Malecon and Avi Avi gnabry, Mullah Omar ami octave, obey the law obey the law and Abu Salah mattagami Abdul Rahman. And I checked us out in LA v solo la sala de la Santa Ana have gone to an AMA Dinah yam and Albania de Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what each layer via a bloody VEDA sajida Hamas any Sakaba to which layer by either karma bicep to Houma Colette when poo to Yama eating a Sufi Hamas, Bobby. So in this hadith what do we see on our chatons Odin abuse? Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam the wife of the Prophet salallahu Salam on her authority that and now call it that she said, Come to Anam Albania de Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to sleep and I'm
from No, I used to sleep before the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. What did you laugh at and my feet would be in his direction, meaning she would lay in front of him horizontally, okay. And her feet would be in the place where he had to do said to them, okay, it doesn't mean that the prophets of Allah center would face her completely. No, she would be lying down horizontally. But because the room was so small, and that was the only suitable place for him to pray, what would he do? He would pray and her feet would be in the place of his such though. So then what would happen? But he does sajida then when he would have to do said the Bahamas and he, he would nudge me for
carbon storage layer. So I would pull up my legs, my feet for either comma. And then when he would stand again, in prayer versus tumor, I would stretch them out again.
He said, Well boo to Yama even and the houses at that time. Laser v hair masabi. There were no lamps in them. Why did she say this? Because the prophets Allah center would nudge her so that she would pull away her leg so that she would fold her legs in. All right. Why? Because she could not see, even if she was awake. All right, she could not see if the profit subtle autism was coming down into them. There are many things that we learned over here. Okay. But because it was dark, they had no lamps. This is why he would not.
So with that nudge, she would know, okay, he's going into such that she would fold in her legs. And then when he would stand up, then she would stretch her legs again. Now, we see over here, first of all the problems that a lot of them is praying, and she's sleeping. Why would she be sleeping? Either she didn't have to pray herself, or because they had to do something that was not mandatory on her. But it was something that was required from the principal to the lawyers. He had to pray in the night. And he would, and sometimes he would pray so long that his feet would swell. And what would his response be a further akuna than shakoora should not be a grateful servant. So it's okay.
If you're praying, and your spouse is sleeping, don't think that they are not righteous, or they're so lazy. Or they're like this, no, never think evil of your spell. Someday you may have strength. And another day, they may have strength, one day you've been given delfy and another day, they have been given tofik Alright. Secondly, we see the prophets that a lot of them is praying so silently, that I shall know and it doesn't know when he's coming down into sudduth. So he has to Niger. Then we also see over here that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is touching her in prayer. So this means that if there is some kind of, you know, physical contact, obviously for reason, or sometimes even
accidental, between the husband and wife between Muharram even if opposite gender, there is no sin in that the Salah does not break, because sometimes it may happen that your husband is praying, and you're passing by. So what happens at the same time he is getting up from record or something, and you end up bumping into him slightly, or that he is praying right before you're right or you're praying close by and it happens right? So in this situation, remember that the Salah is not invalid, it does not break that imagine she's sleeping and her sleep is constantly being affected because of his prayer. But we see that he is accommodating of her and she is accommodating of him both need to
cooperate with one another. There are no eligibility with one cannot complain that I cannot sleep properly. You keep nudging me, right? And the other cannot complain that Why are you sleeping? Because if you sleep then I don't have you know the motivation to pray. Right? No, both need to accommodate one another and both need to cooperate with each other. So we see over here that why is Mambo Holly bringing this Hades because we're the feet of OSHA, we know we're on hardware. That was the bed. That was where she was lying down. So that was the bed that was her sleeping place. So that is where the profit total lot is and it was doing such
You understand because a solid yellow garage that's the vibe I show below Anna is lying down. And obviously her feet will be where on her bed. Don't think of a of a wooden bed. Okay? Sometimes bed is also on the floor like a mattress or sheet on the floor. Okay, so it's permissible to pray there as long as the place is clean. Now, one more thing you may have heard of a hadith in which we learned that if a woman passes before men while he's praying, then his Salah is broken. Right and that is an authentic hadith. So how do we combine the two how do we understand the two things there is a difference between fasting in front of and over here she was sleeping in front and also one
more thing that only her feet were in front of him in the place of seltzer. So, there is no harm in that. How does it done I have no bouquet in follow had done a laser on retailing and he had been caught on euro two and now a shadow of Morocco and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam McKenna, you suddenly what he avena who will be no Qibla to Russia, that I should have been over I know she informed that the messenger sallallahu Sallam used to pray while she would be between him and between the Qibla okay meaning between him and the Qibla Qibla isn't what he was facing. I feel I should lie on the bed of his family meaning on the bed way him and his wife I shall deliver and I
used to sleep at Robin janessa tea It was a rod meaning lying adjacent perpendicular because of this width right? So she would be lying down horizontally, not lengthwise. Just like Elgin aza, just like the dead body is placed before the person who is leading the funeral prayer. Have you ever seen how it is performed? Or do you know how it is performed that that body is placed but the Imam is not right in front but the body is on the side right? Just a part of it is in front of the man. So this is how she would lie down before him. He doesn't have to live news of color had this analyst uneasy on a locking and ruleta and then a BS en Allahu alayhi wa sallam McKenna, you suddenly want to
murder gluttony that the Prophet said a lot of them would be praying and I showed with our I would be lying down how horizontally baina who availibility between him and between the Qibla alpha rush on the web, and Liliana many early on which both of them would sleep, so they shared their bed, I should know and I would be lying down on it and the prophets that a lot of them would be praying. Now there's one thing that we see over here that a lady and I manually the prophets are a lot of sort of natural with Orion has slept in the same bed because some people think it is very easy to separate the bed from the wife, no, it is so not to sleep on the same bed. Obviously, there is a
genuine reason. Like for example, sometimes one of them could have a serious snoring issue and the other cannot sleep. So because of that reason, one sleeps in the other room, and the other sleeps in the bedroom. So there is a genuine reason over there. Or sometimes because the mother has a baby and the husband needs to go to work really early. So there is a reason but this is not a permanent thing. It should be only a temporary situation, the husband and the wife have been called reverse of each other. And in the Sun Also we see that husband and wife share the bed that So do they are so efficient that will help so frustrating on what a soap opera soap fish that will help in extreme
heat, meaning when it's extremely hot to the ground is very, very hot. So in that situation, okay, your feet are strong enough to bury the heat your knees maybe as well because of the clothing there. But when you're doing such that your forehead, your nose, I mean how can you and sometimes you may be at a Masjid, you know, in the courtyard of a Masjid. And it may be extremely hot at that time. And if you pray on that, it might be very, very uncomfortable. so in this situation, what should be done?
A person can frustrate on the cloth on the garment. What color has a new and hasn't said catacomb? Some people would yes to do either enormity they will do such that on the turban. One pollen Swati were there who could mean Colin Sawa is a headcovering. Okay, a headcovering. Basically, not an laminata turban but headcovering like, for example, some received the Arabs with a headscarf. Okay, it takes different forms. It's basically one of the head clots or head coverings that men wear. It's not hijab, okay? Something that men wear, and it's different in different cultures. So if a person has a head covering a man has a head covering or a turban or something of the sort and he goes down
As the underground is extremely hot, can you place that on the floor and do surgery on it? Or can he put that on the ground from before? Because he knows that he is going to do such that. So before he starts the prayer, he puts it down on the ground. And he decided on it permissible. Absolutely. And by the way, don't think of the turban as something wrapped up. Because when you take it off, it's going to be unwrapped, it's going to be like a piece of cloth.
Alright, don't think of it as a as a hat, or as a turban that is stitched together? No, because in order to put it on, you wrap it and in order to take it off, you unwrap it, so when it would be taken off in order to such that on, obviously, it would be a sheet. Okay? So it is completely permissible. Now there's one thing when you know that you're preying on ground that is not comfortable to do such the on what should you do from before, put something on the floor. Some people they have a habit of keeping an ad in their car, or keeping, you know, a small foldable, a prayer mat in their bag. Okay, and you have really nice ones available, especially when you're
traveling, it's ideal to keep something like that in your back. Okay, because as you're going down in Georgia, you might see something, or you might have, you know, a nasty feeling in your heart. So you don't want to ruin your Salah. Likewise, if you're praying on grass, it's clean, very nice, feels lovely on your feet, but not on your face. So put something on the place of your search. Even if it's a small net, a handkerchief, maybe even paper towel,
your jacket, anything that you can find, put it even paper sometimes whatever that you can find put it there just to make yourself comfortable. But remember, it is not mandatory. It is not mandatory. Yes.
Exactly. Yes. Because the grass is going to come into your nose is going to poke your face. And then you're wondering what kind of fertilizer is this? And who walked on it and which animal came here? Right so your mind can wander off anywhere? So to maintain for sure. In Salah what is best that you put something on the ground when there is a need. And before you pray, always check the place. Is it suitable for prayer? Is it suitable for surgery? And if it's not, then do what is necessary basically, the question is why are you praying? Let's say you didn't realize before the salana while you're praying, can you do that? You can as long as the movement is not excessive, because we have
learned that a person can move a little bit during the prayer where the movement is necessary, but it should not be too much. Okay, because it's going to take your focus away. So for example, you have your hijab, okay, y'all come up, it's big enough, you're going down into sajida instead of taking your arms out, what do you do, you keep them in and you go straight down. And then as you get up, it gets up with you as you go down, goes down with you that the people would do such the on his firestudio Allah, a hardener, Allah, so we'll be obviously so he is what he's wearing at that time. Okay, so for example, he's wearing a loose sheet around his shoulders. And as he goes down into such
that he takes a part of it puts it on the ground as such that gets up then I can put it on the ground research done. Okay, but it should not be excessive woman that a woman is trying to readjust her hijab and taking a portion of it and then how does it evolve led? He shall have no Abdulmalik or had disinhibition of the movable color. How does a New Hollywood upon and back rivia Abdullah and Anna Sydney Malik Kala ko Nana Salima Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and has been medic, he said we used to pray with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I see that when I mentioned the name of the prophet SAW the Lotus and in many of you your mouths don't move your mouse don't move at all. I
don't hear anything. I don't see anything. Please be very careful. Calico nano Salima Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam failed or whodunnit. So one of us would place thought of sob, the side an edge or a side of his garment mentioned that it had to be from extreme heat free mechanics to God in the place of the search. So in the place of search, though, what would he do? He would put the side the edge of his garment over there in order to search the on it. But a solid if in your alley, praying in sandals, can you pray and shoes Can you bring in sandals? Yes, you can especially when there is fear of losing them. Or there is fear that the floor is wet, it's slippery, okay or that
your feet will get dirty. So in that
Case dirty isn't muddy, not nudges, muddy, or that the floor may be very hot, the ground may be very uneven, there may be stones over there. So in that situation, pray with your shoes on, you may be out for a picnic, you don't have a prayer mat, all you can find his paper towel. So you put that in the place of your such that keep your shoes on and pray. Is that okay? perfectly okay? In suffer, as well as have a meaning you can do this when you're traveling. And you can even do this when you're at home. Let's say the weather is really nice and you go out in the backyard and you want to pray there. And you don't want to bring the prayer mat outside on the grass because you want to keep
indoor things indoor, for example. So you want to pray where you are. So you put something in the place of such that you can pray in your shoes. That's how that has been made. So comfortable anytime, anywhere. Right. However, you are just basic requirements, basic conditions. And then remember I
had this Adam s
called I had this uninsurable to call a foreigner abou Muslim at a series of New Year's Eve as they you call us to understand an American. He said I asked and has been Malik a cannon abuse Allahu alayhi wa sallam you suddenly phenol he? He said I asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to pray in his sandals, Harlan and he said yes. He said yes, he used to pray in his sandals. But obviously what's the condition that the sandals must be clean the shoes that you're wearing should be clean. Because remember that occasion when the prophet SAW the laws and was praying with his shoes on and to be okay when pointed to him. So he took his shoes off and the companions behind even they took
their shoes off, right because they just follow the proper total bonus and later on he explained that his shoes were unclean This is why he took them off. Now, does this mean that if a person is not wearing their shoes, they should put their shoes on to pray because the prophets a lot of them used to pray in his shoes. And then we object that Why are mosaddek carpeted you know we should be allowed to pray in our shoes, bring our shoes inside them aside You
know, it is mentioned that it is better to pray sometimes barefoot and sometimes wearing shoes according to what is easy.
According to what is easy. And what is easy. That if if a person is wearing shoes, then they should pray in their shoes. And if a person is not wearing shoes, and they should not wear their shoes, they should not put them on in order to pray. Okay. So wherever you are, however you are, whatever is most convenient do that, that we see what is more common today is that you don't wear your shoes to pray, right when you're praying. So this proves that if you're wearing your shoes, you don't need to take them off to pray. Unless there is another reason to do so. by for example, you're going to pray on a mat on a carpet and if you put your shoes on it, it's gonna get dirty. So in that
situation, yes, you take your shoes off, but otherwise, don't take your shoes off just for salah and don't just put your shoes on for Sunna. Okay, do whatever is easy and convenient at the time that a celebrity feel free fair fee to pray in leather socks. We learned earlier that a person can do math on your socks. In other words, when a person is doing will do and he's wearing his socks, as long as he had will do when he put his socks on, he can wipe over them. So obviously if you're wiping over them to do that means you're praying in them. So in wiping over them is permissible, then by extension praying in them is also permissible. But there's also other evidence that it is
permissible. Had this an Adam called I had the Sherpa to our machine call us America Ibrahim, you had this one hammer we've been hired as part of the eighth or duty era. If not Abner della Bella so matoba he said I saw Jared when Abdullah he urinated and then he did will do one masala who fake it and then he wiped over his socks. So mahkamah then he stood for sunlight. And then he prayed. Meaning he prayed like that for so he left so he was asked that what did you just do? First of all, you didn't wash your feet, you just wiped over your socks. Secondly, you're wearing these socks which are covering your ankles and for the men. The ankles have to be uncovered. Right? And then
you're praying like that. So mahkamah pasanda. So either for Karla so he said we're at nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. sanera Mr. Harada. He said I saw the prevalence of autism doing something like this doing like this pada Ibrahim. Ibrahim said for Kenny Are you boom? This answer would Amaze The people. Why? The Nigerian because jury can I mean actually man Islam. He was one of the last people to embrace Islam. So what does that mean? That He is someone who became Muslim towards the end of the prophets, Allison's life.
And if he saw the profits on a lot of them doing this, that means that the prophets Allah is going to bid this
towards the end of his life, which means that this was not one. So, this was not abrogated okay. So this is why they were amazed that wow the prevalence of autism did this. So, that means it is permissible for us to have this is happening Aslan called Sanatana Dharma Shia and Muslim and Muslim and in Madeira evening sure about the Follow button obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, I helped the Prophet Allah audison perform will do the Masonic cafe he was Allah. And then he waved over his socks, and he prayed. But remember that wearing socks is not mandatory, neither for men nor for women. For men, their ankles have to be exposed. But for women, the ankles have to be covered.
Like we learned earlier, it's necessary that the ankles be covered in if part of the foot is exposed, there is no harm, because the way of the people at that time was not to wear socks all the time. Imagine if the men, some of them possessed only two garments to cover their bodies with their only one garment like we learned earlier, using they could afford to buy several socks for their wives, leather socks, no they couldn't. Every person did not even possess shoes or sandals. They lived in extreme poverty. And there are places where people live in such poverty. And we see that everyone cannot afford to have many socks and to wear socks all the time to wear socks for five
silhouettes in one day. So wearing socks is not mandatory and a woman what is necessary is that her ankles are covered and as much of the foot as she can cover she should cover and how with what with a long garment because that was the way of the women at the time of the prophets.
They would wear long garments, and with that their feet would be covered. And it is inevitable that when you're wearing a long garment when you will go down into such that what will happen, the back of your foot will be exposed can get exposed. Okay, so don't impose this hardship upon yourself that you wear socks all the time. Ensure that your clothes are long, like for example, your Avaya as long as the pants that you're wearing are long enough your skirt whatever you're wearing is long enough and it should be long anyways, because it's not decent that a woman's ankles are being exposed when she's out. So ensure that your clothes are long enough to cover. But don't put your socks on to
pray. Because this will make them difficult for you and for your family. You see, it depends on the length of the vial because some women they prefer to have their via above the ankles. And sometimes they prefer to have it below their ankles. The longer it is the better it is. It's best but there is no evidence that proves that they have to be covered. And we discussed this earlier. In winter, what will men do? They will take their socks off, they will expose their ankles when it's extremely cold. No, they can keep their socks on. The point is that the men should not have their either the lower garment so long that their ankles are being covered because
meaning what is falling down from above should not be long. This is socks that you want. Are you talking about ankle socks? No, no ankle socks should not be worn from us. Man or woman. Okay, when it comes to muscle, when it comes to boo boo, okay, wiping socks, then remember that those socks should be long enough to cover the ankles. Okay, and you can pray in that too. If you're wearing ankle socks, you cannot do Musonda. Okay. And for a man who does muster on his socks, can he pray in them, of course because if he will take them off according to one opinion his will do will be invalid even if it covers his ankles because it's not the upper garment. That is what you see what
is forbidden for men is that their upper garment should not be so long that their ankles are covered. Because in the time of jelenia the rich people would wear long lower garments, and they would drag them behind. Which is why if you read the complete Hades in which is mentioned that what is below the ankles is in the fire. It mentions that Allah will not even look at the person who drags his clothes behind him out of pride. Okay, so this was an expression of patinas that, that the Arabs would do that. They would wear long garments and drag them behind them. Like a trail behind or whatever it is. So that is something that's not permissible. Yeah, but it's best to expose the
ankles in this I mean they should fold them up in the prayer. Okay, if the socks are covering that's a different story. Bab either alum, utms sujood when the frustration is not complete, why is this being mentioned all of a sudden? Because if your clothing is not appropriate, if the place of sight is not well prepared, then will you do something
properly, you want to, if the grass is bulky, right? And you're doing says that directly on it, you didn't put anything on it, then what will happen when you're doing such that you will not place your head and your nose on the ground properly
correct, if the ground is extremely hot and what will happen, you will go down and immediately get up, go down to such that immediately get up you will not be able to do your sudduth properly. So, is this a problem? A very, very big problem of Barona Sol to even Mohammed Akbar and MIT you and Wesley and Abby weigh in on her they fetta Rajan has a federal cadaver ankle, he saw a man lay you tomorrow who are who well as Sue Judah who who was not completing his record nor his to Jude, meaning he was not performing them properly. He would go down there and get up immediately. He would go down into the core and get up immediately he wouldn't even go down properly, barely touch the ground and get
him barely going to bending position and get up. Okay, you would not perfect the setup or the ruku he was rushing through the prayer. Further macabre salata who then when he completed his prayer call the who, who they refer to who they first said to him now for later you have not prayed this is not Santa Carlo Arecibo he said and I think Kala he said that who they first said lo Mota if you were to die, performing Salah in this manner, mozzarella very soon at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then you would die on other than the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam meaning you're not dying on the Sunnah. You're not practicing, the sooner you are far, far from the Sunnah. Because what is
the sooner to perform the sajida and the rocor? properly? So we see that he was very stern over here, because the matter of such the Andrew core is very serious. You know that the worst theft is a theft of Florida? And what is it that Upsala that a person does not perform it properly and completely. So a person when he's performing such that what should he do? He should go down, become still recite the necessary a god and then get up. Not that a person says the panel will be the arleigh on the way to such that. Okay, once a panel will be there. And once a panel will be the Arla on getting up or while getting up like many people do as they go down into the core. There's a lower
sub panel below them as they go down into the pool once upon a little bit earlier there as they're getting up some of your volume and this is not appropriate. You're supposed to say the anchor of such the inside of the court of record in record and you cannot say them until and unless you have on what Nina what is the what Nina stillness, calmness that you go into such that you become still and calm. You say what you have to say. And then you gotta remember the person who did not do such the undercooled property what are the problems that a lot of them say to him? It hurt for Sally for in a column to suddenly pray because you have not prayed so he went and prayed again made the same
mistake the problem that a lot of them said go pray again made the same mistake until the man eventually gave up and he said Teach me and what did the profit sort of holism teach him that when you go to such that then becomes still when you go to the core become still if there is a reason and you have to finish your very quickly then shorten the pm okay shorten the sola shorten your account so for example, you say soprano Bella Liam three times and then also some other Muslims Ah, then don't say that just says a panel a bit Arlene three times. That's enough. So do the bare minimum. And in that manner, shorten your prayer. Don't shorten it by leaving that which is mandatory because
that render the Salah invalid, unacceptable. A lot of important is given to the prayer itself, but not on the correct method of prayer how to pray properly, because when it is necessary to pray, it is also necessary to pray properly because if the prayer is not proper, it will not be accepted. Some people their deeds are accepted and other people their deeds are not accepted. Why are these not accepted when they don't meet the current requirements when they're not according to the Sunnah. So this is why are they fed a widower and he was so stern that if you die praying like this, then you will be far from the Sunnah of the messenger self is
that God Baba IE, where you Jaffe fisu God, that in the such that is to do with what should happen you buddy, that the Messiah Lee, the person who's praying he should expose meaning you should show that by his armpits, doesn't mean that there should be uncovered. The purpose over here is that the armpit can only be seen if the arm is away from the body, right if the arm is opened up, okay? So this is what is meant that you've delivered what you
Jeff is so God and he should you Jaffe, you Jaffe, that a Jaffa to keep away. So, he should keep away his arms from what from the body when inserted in other words when a person is performing sajida then his arms should not be touching the side of his body or her body, this is the same for men and women, the arms should not be touching the side of the body, rather they should be kept away from the body, not that the person sitting next to you is being disturbed No, meaning they should be loose, can you do that, such that your armpit is open this is how you're supposed to such them relaxed, that don't be tight and uncomfortable and closed in Relax, relax inside Alright, when can
you do this? What has this got to do with the previous of web okay the place of such that and also the clothing delivers right? That if the reverse is not suitable, then what will you do, you'll be so tight in your prayer afraid that your hijab will fall off afraid that your body will be exposed. So the clothing has to be proper so that a person can do such that comfortably and properly in jamara even in that case, you should you know keep your arms away from the body as much as possible and make sure that your armpit is open. Okay, one is to pray like this and the other is to pray like this even with a little bit of gap it is possible to achieve this you don't have to have your arms
outstretched completely so that you deal with it where you Jeff is to do the corner you have novocaine and how does an Abercrombie model and Jefferson I have new hormones and are the leg of new American evening behind it and then Abele sallallahu alayhi wasallam that the prophets that alone is southern Canada Salah when he used to pray for Raja mania day he then he would phonology phonology is from Fairtrade which is basically a gap right a hole in something so for water, he would keep you would keep a gap between a between his hands. What this means is that he would spread his arms, okay, so that there would be a gap between the side of the body and the arm. So your upper arm and
the side of the body, you have to keep a gap between them. How is that possible that when you keep the arm away, so it has a law firm Albania they had the year but there was so much so that you have the way it would be exposed via a play the whiteness of his armpits, right? This was obviously because for a man if necessary to cover the shoulders. But obviously if he's in touch that and sometimes the armpit may be exposed. So what color laser had that knee jerk little blue viata Whoo. So what's the lesson over here that the arms should not be touching the side of the body,
rather, a gap should be maintained. And this is only possible when the clothing is appropriate, the place is suitable for prayer, then a person can perform the Salah properly. And if he does not perform the Salah properly,
then how else would I be accepted? So this is why it is important to ensure that your clothing is correct. The place where you're praying is also suitable.
Right? We think that this only affects who sure it affects the validity of your prayer even you know when we emphasize so much. Make sure your job is not slippery. Make sure it's long enough. Make sure it's like this. Why do we emphasize all this? Yes to ensure crucial, but not just that to ensure the validity of prayer as well. This is why it's necessary to learn about all of these matters. Now, like I mentioned earlier that this is something that's for men as well as for women. What's the evidence for that?
The evidence is there is nothing against it. Okay, on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Salo kannamma eight Munoz Sally Cray as you see me praying that it means that men and women have to follow the same method of prayer, the same method of prayer and the only thing that women will do different is what they have been told. And what is that the covering? Okay, the covering their clothing, only their clothing is different. And in jamara, where they stand where do they stand at the back from now, the following dublab are basically about is the equivalent Qibla facing the Qibla. So in some books, you will find that all of these above are under a different chapter. Okay.
In other books, you won't find that in some books you might have web is the final pillar, the chapters relating to the Qibla First of all, Bab Fogg listed valuable Qibla T. the excellence of facing the Qibla follow the virtue, the importance of facing the Qibla how necessary it is, how important it is. So much so that you're stuck below that the Messiah Li he will face the Qibla how we are
throw off any delay with the toes with the edges of his two feet, and what does the edge refer to the toes, meaning the toes should also be facing the Qibla. in prayer, how important it is to face the Qibla that your entire body, every single limb of yours, obviously, for the limb, which is possible, okay, it should be facing the Qibla. So for example, you should be standing completely straight, completely straight, so that your knees are facing the Qibla your face isn't the direction to cover your shoulders and the direction of your feet, and so much so that even your toes. So what does it mean? That you should not be standing in such a way that your feet are going sideways? No,
Your feet should be straight. And when you will do that, your posture will be straight. When you will do that the role will be straight. You know that?
We complain about the rows not being straight. Why? Because the people are not standing properly, their toes are not facing the Qibla that if you look at them account, Ibrahim alayhis salam, how are his feet straight? Okay, straight not going sideways. You understand what I mean by sideways, right? So the feet should be as straight as possible, the doors should be facing the Qibla. This is how important it is. So bad funnel is that vital capability, you're stuck below the authority originally. And also when you're sitting, okay, when you're sitting, then your feet your right foot should be
upward, right? It should be standing. So in that case, also your toes are folded. Why? So that they are facing the Qibla. When you're sitting in the shadow, your hands are straight, not inwards, not outwards, straight wise that your fingers are also facing the Qibla exactly even agree that you say straight mom's not folded. Okay, straight so that your palms are facing the Qibla Can we do that and you will notice a different Not right now I mean in prayer. So when you will do that you will feel a difference. You feel that your entire body is attentive, hands are straight, your face is straight, your forehead, your shoulders, your toes, everything in the direction of the criminal remember, I
was very very little when my father taught me this. Right And from that day, I remember that you know those have to be strict because children they're more focused on the physical aspect of prayer right? So it's necessary that they're taught these things that they develop these habits that when they grow up, they can focus on crucial so far listed vital Qibla yes that will be across the region a caller from a dinner and in a BSL a lover and you said them Abu Hamid mentioned that from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and inshallah this will be mentioned later. So basically we learned this in Hades hatena evason Kala had the center ignore the call ahead of new siding and my
known of knizia him an NSF new mannequin color he said Carla Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said mon sun la sala Tana, whoever performed our prayer was stuck with a Pig Latin and faced our Kibler will either be hatena an eight hour They'll be here for their local Muslim. So that is the Muslim Allah de la huitema to LA he within materasso de the one for whom is the protection of Allah and the protection of His Messenger them over here gives meaning of protection meaning such a person is under the protection of Atlanta's messenger. So the messenger subtle law is Adam said further to feudal law feeding my TV, so do not act treacherously against a
law with respect to his protection to feel is is basically or the other meaning doing Fianna acting treacherously. So when Allah has protected you then do not do piano in respect to that protection. What does that mean? That protect yourself remain Muslim, that if you do quiana in Salah in Qibla in Serbia, you're losing the protection of them. So what do we see over here
on sola, salata was toquilla Qibla, Tana Ocala, the V
Sala Qibla the via all are equally important, because these three things What are they? They are the obvious signs of being a Muslim, they are the obvious shot of the deen right. For person crazies, obviously Muslim of a person faces the Qibla obviously Muslim at the we have obviously Muslim. So, it is very, very important for a person to strive to determine the Qibla when he prays Sunnah because just as it is important
To pray, it is important to determine the privilege to face the crippler. And if you don't know the Qibla, you can't just pray randomly in any direction, you have to determine to the best of your ability, you have to ask, look at the sun, find a man by an app. Okay? Do whatever you have to do. But facing the Qibla is mandatory in prayer, it is where
it is wired up to face a problem in prayer. And it shows the importance of the clipping of this Hadees. And notice the prophets. A lot of them said, Our Qibla was that bollocky Blac Chyna, our Cutler, the Qibla of the Muslims, and what is that? The Carver and some scholars, they said that the cargo was the equivalent of all the profits.
Okay. It was the equivalent of all the profits. And it was the hood and then a sort of who changed the Qibla okay to basically mock this and even in that they were not united. Some of them faced one part of it, the others faced the other part of it some face to my shock, others face the Muslim. Some scholars have said that, that the original Qibla since forever, because in a world of at will they are the nurse, the lady Rebecca Ibrahim is the infant nurse will hedge. Right? Well, he really said was to make the announcement for her to everyone was to come to the Kaaba to pray. And if they were not there, they would face the Carver in their Salah in their prayer. However, their prayer was
all of the profits, the face the carbon, and we know that the profits or losses and when he was in Makkah, he faced the carbon when he migrated to Medina for about 16 to 17 months he was to face by to knock this why
he learned in Ireland Romania, the Bureau of a pseudonym am caribou are there actually, it was a test for the people of that time, as we learned in the second just also to incline the I look it up to accepting to show that he is the follower of the same Dean meaning that he is the messenger a continuation of the previous messengers basically. So anyway, eventually the Qibla was changed to the Kaaba. So all the Muslims wherever they are, when it is time for for prayer, they must face the Qibla okay regardless of which place they are in. And notice over here the prophets that a lot of them said mon Salah salata was stopped Baraka blatten our aka the V hat. And what does it mean by
who prayed our prayer. There are many people who pray, but everyone doesn't pray the prayer of the prophets of Allah.
And what I mean by that is not that they're not performing all the sudden. What I mean by that is that there are many people who pray in different religions. But their Salah is not like that as a prophet totalizing they don't face the karma. They don't say to create, they don't recite Fatiha. They don't do record. They don't do such them. Correct. They will
do similar actions maybe, but not completely. For example, the Jewish prayer is very similar, but it's not like the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, right? Likewise, there are people who claim to be Muslim, but they pray only twice, and they praise it in a different way. Their method is completely different. That is not the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu Salah. The second thing is what was the
right people, they face an idol. They face a different structure maybe that is not acceptable. Who isn't the production of a Lynas messenger, the one who faces the Qibla, meaning the Carver in prayer will occur the V hatena. eight hour the V ha, what is the behind the slaughtered meat right, the slaughtered animal, the meat of witches for eating. So there are many people who slaughter but everyone doesn't slaughter. Like the prophets have a lot of them slaughtered. Like the Muslims at the time of the prophet SAW a lot of them slaughtered. And if they don't slaughter in that way, and that means you can't eat. What is that way? Ella's name is mentioned. Right? That the slaughter is
either Muslim or kitabi.
Right. And then thirdly, the blood is drained out completely, because the animal is cut from the jewelry that we see where Qibla unites the believers. It is also solid that unites the believers and it is also the vihara that unites them.
These are all symbols of unity of discipline, discipline, because Salah what kind of discipline and brings to a person's life. Likewise Qibla it makes you aware of your surroundings, you know, where north is where South is where East is where West is, and other people they may have no idea. And if they do, it's only because of their driving. Right? That's the only reason why they know Likewise, the be Have you become so disciplined in your eating. So this is something that brings unity and discipline to not just one Muslim but to all of the Muslims have done or Ayman Kala had the center in Mubarak and her maiden Athena and Anna
numeric Allah, Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the messenger sallallahu Sallam said we'll move to an aquatera NASS, I've been commanded to fight the people have Daya kulula illa in the world until they say, there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah for either pilu her than when they say it was so low Salah Tana and they perform our prayer was stuck below people Atlanta and they face our Qibla wherever who they be hatena and the slaughter our the behind meaning the way we slaughter the slaughter in the same way faqad hieromartyr Elena Dima
then their blood and their property meaning their lives and their properties are forbidden on this endeavor hallelujah except by its right meaning unless there is another reason to, to take part of their property or their life, where he said we're on the law and the final account is with who would have lost the penalty, or the first part of this Hadees it's a discussion for some other time in Sharla. But for now, what is of relevance to us is that what makes a person a Muslim an obvious sign of Islam, amongst other signs is what? facing the Qibla and it shows the importance of the Qibla column NaVi Maria a foreigner here who doesn't know her maiden had done an ns on interviews at a
local radio send them we'll call our Legion. If not, Abdullah had done a holiday on hiatus or her maiden father certainly moon ignacia him and a seven American Kalia Hamza so my moon when sia he asked nsmt Malik, he said oh Hamza, cornea of an asthmatic man you have removed them and are the one who what is it that makes how long the blood meaning the life of a servant and his wealth meaning what is it that makes it sacred so that a Muslim cannot fight him cannot take it away? for dementia he that he said to whoever witnesses Allah, Allah in the light that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah was stackable aka platinum and faces our Qibla are Sol la sala Tana and performs
our prayer will occur at the V hatena and eight hour that we have for one Muslim. So he is a Muslim law whom and in Muslim, he has the same rights as that of other Muslims were Lima and and Muslim and upon in my responsibilities as other Muslims, meaning such a person will be considered a Muslim.
So what is the sign of a Muslim? his prayer, his dibbler, his food, his prayer, his Qibla, his food, all of these three things are signs of Muslims. But the question is, why is it necessary, so important to face? Because you see, this is something that basically protects a person's life, meaning this is something that ensures him security in a Muslim land, the fact that he faces the Qibla Why, what's the big deal? He's praying isn't enough? What's the significance of the Qibla?
unity, organization? discipline, obedience, submission, right? Because just imagine, if 20 people are praying in the same place, one is praying this way in other things, the center the brain, in this way, how haphazard how disunited, how this organized chaos, right. But when people are praying in the same direction, forming rules, then the scene is completely different from a flea market to a proper grocery store. A huge difference from a street with no road signs on it, no separate, what do you call it? lanes to organized driving right? organized roads? Yes, why would I need a unity. So, this is why it's so important. And if you see at the beginning of the second just so much emphasis
has been given over there for load you have a turn your faces Now, turn your faces not towards the face it when a person is traveling at home, wherever he is faced the Qibla because without the Qibla we would be this united Bab el Medina to me while machete the Qibla of the people of Medina and the people are a sham and the people are the east. One machete means what?
So after knowing the importance of facing the Qibla a person must know what is the Qibla where is the Qibla so the next step is to determine where the equivalent is. So how to determine it with regard to the people of Medina, the people of Syria and the people of the East. for them. Mr. Bahari says they're quibbler he says laser film machinery whatever filmography equivalent
for them for who? People of Medina, people have shown people of mushnik for them. There is no Qibla Phil Mattia cola and
not the east, not the West, meaning when they're praying. They're Qibla is not in the east, nor is there
In the West,
so then where is it between the East and the West? for them for all these people who live in this part of the world? for them their privilege is between the East and the West? Why? What's the evidence licola NaVi sallallahu wasallam because of the statement of the messenger sallallahu Sallam that led the stock will clip letter do not face the fibula when below even when using the washroom or bowling or when urinating, well I can show Rico over rebou rather face the east or the west. So when he said face the East when you're using the washroom or face the West when using the washroom and what does that mean? That the east is not Qibla West is not Qibla what is between and what is
that? What is that? What is between the East and the West is what either north or south right? So, what is between that is the Qibla but remember that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this to who to the people of Medina, okay to the people of Medina, this doesn't mean that this will be applicable everywhere in the world. This doesn't mean that the statement will be generalized, that you cannot face the East you cannot face the West you will either face northeast Northwest anywhere you know those degrees or towards the south north. depends on where you are. So anyway, we see that maka, it is in the south of Medina, isn't it Makkah is in the south of Medina. And you have to face
Makkah when you're praying. So for the people of Medina, and for the people who are in a chatroom, and if you see that pink up there with Jordan is written above that is Jerusalem. So basically we see that all of these cities, Medina, Jerusalem, likewise, we see Egypt on the side, if you go higher up, there's Turkey, North Africa, Europe, they are basically in the North West. Okay, they're in the northwest of Makkah. So for them the Qibla is what? South? East? Okay. Now, obviously, the degree will change depending on where they are.
But basically, it's south east. So see the prophets, Allah Islam said not Muslim. But between Michigan moderate to become southeast. It's not exactly east, but it's southeast. All right. Now, if a person is in the east side of Morocco, so you're looking at the other side, where Pakistan is India's visit, you're looking at Asia, in that part of the world, the Qibla will be
west for them. Right now. Again, Southwest, Northwest depending on where exactly they are. They're above or below Makkah. So it will be in the direction of West. The problems when you come to North America. Obviously it has to be where you are. When it comes to North America, there is difference of opinion. Some people they say that you have to pray se and others say that you have to pray northeast, majority of the people they pray northeast, we pray northeast at a hold as well. Okay. Just so that you know in probably in your house as well, you pray northeast, but you never thought about that. And when you go outside, you ask people which direction to pray they tell you usually
northeast, but there is an opinion out there that you have to press southeast. Why? Because when you look at the map, the flat map, okay, the flat map, then what happens? You see that North America is in the north west of Makkah.
You know what I'm talking about? North America and the north west of Makkah. So if you are in North America, and you have to face Makkah, then you will go south east, okay, but we go north east, why? Because the earth is not flat, it is round. And when you go around, then obviously, it makes more sense to go north east. If you'd like to read more on this, I recommend that you do. And if you'd like to then moon sighting.com slash Qibla dot html, there's a whole article on this with pictures, I recommend that you read through it for your own further understanding. So anyway, it is necessary to know where you are and face the Qibla correctly. Now. How can you determine which way the
equivalent is if you're at home, you're at Masjid, easy to figure out. But let's say you're in a parking lot. Let's say you go to a picnic, then what do you do? Okay, you will look at the compass which is in your form and then handed a letter many apps out there for different kinds of forms. So if you have to purchase it, even I say purchase it. Okay, but many are free. But if let's say you need to then go ahead and do that. If you have to purchase a compass, then go ahead and do that. Why? Because it is important to know the crippler in order to pray. One more thing that you can do. Let's say you don't have your phone okay?
Everybody doesn't have that kind of one. Everybody doesn't, you know, want that case, what do you do? Look at the sun. If you know where the sun rises from where it sets, then you know that the sun rises from the east sets in the west, so you can easily determine it north east. All right, you can determine which way north east is, and you can pray in that direction. There are other ways as well, with your analog watch, not digital watch, with your analog watch, there's something that you do, you know, you wind it up in a particular direction, you know, with the sun, then you can figure out which way north is east as West is. But if you're not that high tech, then one thing that you can do
is go ask anybody which way West is which way East is, okay? Because there are many people who know about the map, especially in the local area, and they'll tell you this road east, this road West, right, so in that way, you can determine inshallah, and there are many times where I've actually used this, I've asked people, you know, which way West is, you know, which way north is, and they've been able to tell, okay, but, please, you have to make the effort to determine the Qibla you can't say I'm too embarrassed, right? I'm too embarrassed to pray, first of all, and here I am. random person walking up to somebody asking which way the north south east west is, right? They'll suspect
me or they'll do No, there's no harm. But you cannot just pray with ignorance.
Because this is as equally important as solid as equally important as the visa when it comes to eating we're so particular, we will ask again and again about the ingredients correct? We will ask again and again, even if it's a Muslim with the halaal symbol, was this machine slaughtered and slaughtered right, we're so particular about Libya, but when it comes to Qibla unfortunately, we are very careless we say nevermind, Allah knows I'm just going to face this direction and pray you cannot do that.
You cannot do that you have to find out she's mentioning how at the library she needed to pray and she asked where she could pray and she said that go to the supervisor and ask that your Muslim you need a place to pray. So they will make some arrangements for you. So the things that we have to give importance to our salah and inshallah Allah will provide opportunities right. But always notice where the sun rises from where it sets so that you have
some awareness of your surroundings and and full confidence that you are praying in the correct direction. I know so many people who have accidentally prayed in the wrong direction somebody came to their house checked, is this the Qibla Is this a corrective law? And they found out that it was not the correct way but they were praying in the wrong direction for years for months. So first of all, check in your own house. Are you facing the Qibla in Salah or not? Are you just doing what somebody told you?
Check First of all, okay, secondly, remember that it is necessary to face the Qibla right in the Quran we learned shutter right in the direction of so yes, the angle can be slightly different. So for example, it could be different in by one or two degrees even five degrees even 10 degrees even 15 degrees depending on what is easy for people like it's possible the first person who prayed there he determined the Qibla based on the sun
and now here you are with your you know high tech app on your phone that tells you know the Qibla is slightly towards the right or slightly towards the left and there you give the fatwa off. You know people have been praying in the wrong direction. No, there is room for you know, a little bit of difference. Okay, as long as the main direction is the same. Had this an early human Abdullah Kala Hadassah Sofia Kala heatherton is Rio anaka Evening yazeed and Avi a you will Ansari and then the BIA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call either a datum Allah that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when you come to the washroom for this taquito privilege and do not face the Qibla well attested
Muruga and do not even have your back towards it. What I can show Rico
rather face the east or the west when using the washroom and he said this due to the people of Medina. Clara What are you? Are you upset for Kadena Shipman? So we came to a sham for dinner, meaning Syria and we found mahila washrooms, toilets that were biennials that were built. They were relatively in the direction of vocabulary, because they were built by people of a shampoo. Previously, they were Christian, right? So they had washrooms that were made built facing the Qibla. So he said fun and hairy Fu. So we would turn aside meaning turn at an angle. Obvious meaning with their face. Okay.
Obviously, if the washroom is fixed in a particular direction, you don't have an option. So he said we would turn aside like in our face. And when I stuck it over her Darla, and we would seek forgiveness from the last panel, Dr. Warren is a very honorable in America, you've run interviews of alumnus. And
now we have read this issue earlier, in Kedah will do where we learned that if a person is using the washroom out in the open, then in that case, he should not have his front or back towards the Qibla. Rather, to the other side, but if a person is using the washroom in a closed place, okay? Like, for example, there's a wall right in front of you, then in that case, there is no harm if a person has his front or back in that direction, because remember, the Hadees that one of the companions, he went up to the roof, and he saw the property, obviously, was an accident, facing the vital necklace and his back towards the Qibla. Okay. But this was what, in a closed place. So it's possible that
you did not know about that. Alright, so if you are in a similar situation, then know that there is no harm in this. Now there's one more thing that I'd like to mention before we conclude, which is the issue of pointing one's feet in the direction of the Qibla. Because when it comes to using the Washington, we wonder, Is it okay to have your feet in the direction? Then she has 11 homemade, he was asked about pointing one's feet in the directions equivalent, he replied, there is nothing to say that this is not allowed. But some of the scholars regarded it as mukou, meaning something that is disliked to stretch the feet out towards the curb, if one is close to it. So for example, you're
sitting in the home in the courtyard, and you have your feet stretched out with your, you know, facing the carbon. They said this is my crew, they regarded this as mcru but not emphatically. So meeting they didn't think it was that big of a deal this slide, but not a sin. But if there is a mosque somewhere else and there is a Muslim there who points to speak towards the Qibla there is no harm in that and he is not doing anything forbidden inshallah, as the scholars have stated, why because there is nothing really forbidding us from that. That question was asked a similar question about pointing the feet towards the Qibla while sleeping and he said there is no blame on a person
if he sleeps and his feet are pointing towards the Qibla you know, for example, your room could be such that the only place where you can put the bed is the feet facing the cargo facing the Qibla and you feel sinful for that? No, there is no sin in that. First of all, hardly it happens that a person is lying straight, right? Your feet are always bent either towards the right or to the left. And secondly, even if they are there is no sin in that because there is nothing that proves that it is this like the only thing that the scholar said that if you're sitting close to the curb, you know right next in front in the huddle, then it seems disrespectful. But even they didn't consider it to
be really a big deal. Until a lot more to learn about the next day. There are many things that we have started out of respect, but this respect should not
make our life difficult for us. You know when there is no charge in the deen then we should not make the holige a dino use. So panicle long will be harmed ignition La ilaha illa Anta lyrical and going to be like I said, I'm ready.
