Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu How are you all doing?
Now they want to study or at least get him on my word for the below him in the shade line is watching Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Frobisher, it is Saturday where Sidley MD wash ruler of the Tamil essene of Cabo Kohli probenecid.
Bab 41 would you like to read? Bab hell you all know mosquito Benny Fulani? at DEF CON Abdullah his new use of Allah esperan American interfering or an Abdullah him near Amara under rasulillah salam Cinema sabba kobane Haile let you with me like oatmeal oatmeal happy What am I
sending here to sunny weather? wasabi Cobain Haley Letty lamb to Amina sunny Yeti, Elon Musk Chitty Bang penny to ripen NAB de la Heppner, Amara canopy man, Saba cobia What do you read just the Arabic Do you understand? A little bit maybe? Do you have an idea of what the Heidi's is talking about? Do almost somewhat because it's good to go word by word, but sometimes when we hear an Arabic text, okay an entire sentence then that should also make some sense to us in Sharla okay, because right now, we are breaking up the text a lot, after every word or every two three words. We should also get used to listening to an entire text at once. inshallah.
But hell you Carlo, can it be said must you do Masjid bunny Fulani have such and such a clan benevolent children of so and so meaning and bernoff so and so, they were basically a clan would be called in this way. So, can I must be named after a clan after a person after an individual who may be alive who may be dead. Could be the person who built the masjid could be the person who gave the land for the masjid could be the person who really inspired group of people and as a result they want to name the masjid after him. Is it permissible? Or is it not? It is permissible.
Why because there are many evidences. And besides, this does not contradict the statement of Allahu unelma sajida lay, yes the massage it belonged to Allah. Why? Because only Allah subhanaw taala is worshipped over there. I must say there's no one's personal property. Because one of the conditions for a place to be called the masjid is that that Masjid is walk meaning it is dedicated now. It is not anybody's personal property. Nobody can buy it, sell it. It doesn't work like that. I must have this walk it is dedicated, but for the purpose of identification. A machine can be named after a person or group of people and area. It is completely permissible. And what's the evidence? the
Hadees had the center of the law human use of color of Bora nomadic or nephew and are delighted Nirmala another Sula, la Hassan Allahu alayhi wa sallam that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Silva he organized a race What does it mean to go ahead to cybercoders competition right? So he organized a race rain and hail between horses and obviously on horses were people right so this is a race between horsemen allottee which old millet which were trained so trained horses, okay and obviously this is the people who are making the horses run so a race was organized between them from where to where men and half yet from heavier which is the name of an area or a man to her
and its extent meaning the length of the race was up to where sunny yet over there. This is also the name of a place you may have heard of this in that famous versus a portrait that thought our bedroom Marlena mean sunny yet over there. So what am I do have any other weather The race was from happier all the way to sunny Yato weather whether whatsoever and he also organized a race by an inhale between horses allottee lung tumor which were not trained mina saniya from saniya obviously this is senator whether MSgt to the masjid of Bernie's re akin to the masjid of burnoose. Right, this was a clan, and they had a Masjid where they used to live. So the race was organized all the way to that
Masjid, or an Abdullah habanero moto can if he went said Bobby had an oven or motto below and who was one of the people who participated in the race. So he was not just someone who used to observe the ways of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam his actions, but he also participated in races. He also knew how to ride a horse. Because we believe that if you get into this, you know if you develop this interest of learning and teaching, then you know nothing else of this life. It doesn't benefit you to do anything else in this life. No other things which are beneficial for a person healthy for a person. A person should be active in those and compete also
In that there is absolutely no harm as long as this activity is beneficial, you know, what is that a person is participating in, in cooking competitions? And yes, I mean, okay, it's good. But if you think about how much time is put into it and how much effort and at the end of the day, sometimes the food is eaten, and many times it is wasted. So it's not really a good idea to participate in these things. I mean, that this is a person's main focus in life, it should be something that is beneficial. So even Armando Armando participated in this race as well. But anyway, in this Hadith, we learned that naming a mustard is perfectly fine. And in fact, it is good to do that. Why? So that
the mustard is recognized, it is easier to refer to it, it is easy to identify it. And any name can be given as long as that name is not objectionable, that name is appropriate, it is not objectionable, it could be based on an area, the area where the mustard is located, it could be named after the person who built it person who is alive or dead doesn't matter. You know, for example, you will come across a monster that is named after one of the images of the best go one of the great scholars of the past. Is that permissible? Yes. Is this personality worship? No, it's not personality worship, it's just to show that the people who come here really have respect for this
person, this great person scholar from the past, and they are inspired by his teachings motivated by his writings. And this is why they have named the mustard after him. So there's absolutely no harm in this. And remember that when a mustard is called mustard off, so and so it doesn't mean that the mustard is owned by them. This elaphite is not for milkier, but it is for identification. Okay, it doesn't mean that they own it, but it means that the mustard is identified by that name.
I mean, it doesn't belong to an individual it belongs to a board maybe a company or something. And Islamic organization and Islamic organization is not any one person's personal property.
I mean, no one person has absolute control over it, it belongs to the Muslim community. Right. So they have a board they decide what has to be done by consensus.
Bab Alpes Mati with our little pin within Masjid, LP SMA distribution distribution of what sadhaka like for example, a person comes to the masjid with a bag of dates, for example, and he's just giving to people is that permissible? What are legal can we and hanging up Altenew what has been bunches of dates fill mustard in domestic? Because the mustard is basically a place that is built for the purpose of worship Riba but doesn't mean that other things cannot be done at all. Yes, it is made for Salah but can you distribute sadaqa over there? Can you put food over there so that people who are coming going they can grab a snack so for example, after June masala snacks are distributed
is that permissible or people should find this objectionable that you know people are celebrating here it is as if there's a party going on. This is not a party. This is a Masjid where people should come for prayer and we should not be focused on food and snacking. No There is no harm. Because we are human beings where we worship we also need to eat.
So if a person is hungry, he happens to be at the masjid and he finds food can he eat it? Yes. If a person has a lot of food, they want to bring it to the masjid to share with everybody can they do that? Yes they can.
Honorable Abdullah Abdullah meaning among Buhari he said Elkin will 10 who is illiterate? No means and what is a cluster or a bunch of dates which is on the branch still. So basically the branch has been cut off with the dates hanging on it still. It is said it is June be my feet. It is the branch with what is in it for the branch with the dates on it Have you ever seen anything like this?
Well it's nanny can one its dual is in one well generic to Avon can one and the plural of that is also confined to the singular is thing dual and plural. Both are kenwyne Miss Leslie new in Wesley new and just like sling and sling one. We'll call it Ibrahim and Ibrahim said on Abdullah disease in New Haven are an unnecessarily Allahu anhu pata Odeon obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was brought the man in with wealth meaning wealth was brought to him from where men in Bahrain from Bahrain. This was after the conquest over there, the booty, it was brought to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for color so he said in Surah, who failed Masjid late in the masjid,
meaning all of this booty that has been brought from Bahrain after the victory is over there after the conquest over there. What did he say? That leave it in the masjid put it in the masjid. What can and it was acted on that in the most wealth od
abbyy Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was ever brought, meaning this was the greatest amount of war booty that had ever been brought to Medina thus far. But what are the prophets of Allah Islam say, just leave it in the masjid for Harada Rasulullah Salallahu Salam ala sarathi. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came out for the prayer, what am el de la and he did not even turn towards it. He didn't even look at it. He didn't even pay any attention to it. Imagine things are brought from a foreign land.
And not a few things, but many things. One should be curious to at least see what is it but he didn't even look at it. Why? Because he came for prayer. That was a focus and the prophets Allah Allah said it was a very focused individual, as we will learn in the Hadees today. So he came for prayer. He didn't even look at the wealth. He just went straight to sala falam Nakata salata. Then when he completed the prayer journal, he came for Julissa LA. And then he said, over there, why, in order to distribute that well, for Mark and Ayala ahead, and then you would not see anyone in Morocco except that he gave to him.
Whoever he saw, the prophet SAW a lot of sin and gave him something from that booty. It will our best until when our best game who was our bus, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he came for Kalia rasulillah. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, cleaning give me meaning Give me something as well. Why for any further to never see what they do.
Because I ran some to myself. And I also ran some RP, who was the son of Abu Talib. And both our best and urteil are both Lena Horne who, right? Both of them came at the Battle of butter against the Muslims. And both of them were taken as captives by the Muslims. And remember the captives, they were ransomed. Right, meaning they had to pay the ransom in order to free themselves. So who paid the ransom for our bus and our bus will do the horn or Bassolino on who paid a heavy price to free himself. And he? So he said, I lost so much money at that time. Yes, I have now embraced Islam. I'm in Medina, but I need money, because he had lost a lot. So he said, give me something to I need
something and he didn't come for a little bit. He wanted a lot because a lot of wealth had come in. And he had lost a lot in the past. So he wanted to make up for it. No harm in that. For Karla who Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam so the messengers that a lot has said himself to him could take in take whatever you want for half their fee. So we'll be Heather, Heather is to spread something out. So he spread out his his garment and he started filling it up. All right, taking whatever he wanted, how much ever he got for his fob. Thoma Hubba. Then he went up Lou, trying to lift it up up low is from UCLA. And UCLA is a refer will handle it is to lift up and carry. So he filled it up as much as
he could. And then he began lifting it up in order to carry it. But fanomena still there, but he was not able to. Couldn't even lift it why because it was so much for Kiara su de la so he said O Messenger of Allah,
Allah whom your father who la command some of them meaning the companions who are outstanding here, tell them your father who la they should lift it up on me. I can't lift it up myself. Allah. He said no. The prophets of Allah doesn't refuse to do that. Allah for fire who entirely then you lifted up on me my nephew, yes, you're the Messenger of Allah, but you're also my nephew and I need to help here. So you lift it up for me, Alana? He said no. phenethylamine Who so nassarawa does not allow me to spread out so he In other words, he spread out his garment and he took some of the stuff out and he left it somewhere the harbor up Lou, then he went on trying to lift it up. But he couldn't
sakakawea Rasul Allah or messenger of Allah, Allah whom your father who are they ask them to help me, Allah He said, No, Baba Forfar who entirely then you yourself helped me on Allah. He said, No. phenethylamine who then he had to take some out again. So Medan when it was light enough tamela who then he carried it he lifted it up and he carried it himself for alcohol, alcohol, he and then he put it on his shoulders, someone talakad and then he left firm as well. So he did Nazis who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam youth beer who basara who he was following him with his eyes with his vision. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not stop looking at him had that until huffy.
arlena until he was hidden on us, meaning until
Vasily Dhawan, who was out of sight to the province of the last minutes continue to look at him, watching him until he was out of sight. Raja been amazed I mean, his Li by his greed, his desire for all those things from our Kannada pseudo life or the law to Salaam, to the profit sort of artisan did not stand up from there with them, I mean, her and their, their men have from it, they run, even when they're home, meaning he only got up when there was nothing left. There was not even one Dirham left of all that property, on the profit sort of artisan got up. So in other words, they distributed everything. And this means that he didn't keep anything or himself. Now there are a number of things
that we learned here. First of all, we see that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he came to the masjid, he didn't even look at the wealth. And what does that show that he had no interest in it. And the fact that he distributed everything, and didn't keep anything for himself, that shows that he had no desire for it. But we see that there were other people who didn't just notice it, they didn't just look at it. But they came and asked for it. You know, one thing is that you like something, you're just looking at it and you're waiting for other people to offer.
But if you can't wait for that, and you go and ask, what does it show that you really want it? So our basil below are no hidden, just wait to be given, he came and asked and look at the profit or loss. On the other hand, this doesn't mean that our boss, although I knew was very greedy for a while. This is something natural within human beings. This is something natural within human beings, some people, they are attracted to the worldly things a lot and other people, they have no interest.
Some people they will notice jewelry immediately. Right? Some people will notice the wrinkles on the clothes immediately other people won't even notice.
For some people, they pay attention to these things a lot. And other people don't. It doesn't mean that one person is very greedy, and he saw bad and he saw worldly. It's not necessary. It's a human thing. It's a thing that human beings it's a weakness that human beings have. We're in no Abilify Elijah did as long as it does not drive a person to sin and a Seraph. It's okay. Because we see over here that our vassalboro I knew he did do his trough. But the prophets of audison did not let him right. He didn't help him. He didn't help him didn't tell anybody to help him until our basil they don't and who left some of it that when people are traveling sometimes, and their bags are full, to
the point that they can barely close zips, but they have to take all those things. And they were at home and they know it's overweight. But they say maybe it'll get through, they get to the airport and they find out there is no way they have to take some things out. It happens no matter where in this world you go. When things come from overseas, people are always interested in that. You go to Eastern country, people want to know what has come from the west, you go in western countries, people want to know what has come from the east. That how the profit or the loss no was focused on the solar how much he preferred it that he didn't look at it even until he completed the follow.
What do we say? Let me just peek inside the bag. Let me just open the wrapping paper a little bit and see what's inside. Let me just feel it. I'm just looking at it how heavy big it is. Before this point, it was mentioned earlier that he focused on the solder. And he didn't even look at it. So what if you look at it. So what if you peek into it and see what it is? What's the big deal is
you're going to be thinking about doing a sauna. So if there is something that can cause you to be distracted from your salad, don't even look at it until you are done with your Salah. For example. Your phone, it has beeped, it's beeping you do your will do it's beeping, don't even go look at it because you are going to pray. So this pray when you're done, then check your email, then check the text message. You know why? Because you will have the time to read the text message but you don't have the time to respond to it. You have the time to read the email but not to respond to it. So why distract yourself from what you're doing by something that you can't attend to fully? A very, very
important lesson because we're so distracted these days constantly. You open something, an email and your phone is buzzing. Right you start watching a video, a documentary or something a short clip and immediately there are ads on the sides. So the more you look here and there, the more distracted you will be in at the end you will have nothing achieved. If you want to have something in your hands by the end of the day. Then don't look at anything until you are done with what you're doing. First finish
One task and then begin the next completes one task and then start the next. Because if you have multiple things open at the same time, at the end, you'll have nothing done, no matter what work you're doing. Then we also see over here that our best a little or no, he did not have any. He did not combine lying with his need. If he wanted something, he needed it. He was open about it. He didn't pretend. Because what do we do, we have the need, we want something. But we pretend as if we don't want. So in our heart, we have that unfulfilled need, that will make us have self pity that will make us dissatisfied, be open about what you want. But we think it is part of being shy and
modest, that we don't communicate. If you have a concern in your heart, communicate. Because when you're not communicating, you're doing yourself a harm, and you're doing other people harm. This is unfair, how is it fair, that you want something and you don't even tell the other person? And then when they don't offer it to you, you say Oh, look at them. They're so selfish.
They're so greedy. They don't even care about me. We complain a lot, and we don't communicate. So communicate whether it is with your spouse, or your children or your co workers, whoever it is, or sometimes we feel that they should know. Don't they see? One more thing is that the prophets Allison did not help him. He gave a silent message that I do not approve of this, that you're taking so much for yourself. Because it was okay for a battle to learn who to take from it because the prophets have a lot of them himself told him. But it was not okay for him to take so much. So help other people but not in the matters of a Seraph, not in the matters of extravagance.
support them, Assistant. But when there's a sawn off, then no, we don't help other people over there. And sometimes, you can't even say don't do this. Because if you tell them don't do this, they'll get offended. But if you refuse to help them, then they will get the message.
Also, one more thing, which is very interesting is that the prophets Allah said, and he did not take anything of it for himself. Why? Because a leader of the people is their servant, he does the most. And he takes the least he does the most. And he takes the least this is who the leader is. And if a leader thinks that I should take the most than that isn't a leader. Because sometimes we might feel that the work that we're doing, it demands too much from us. We are overworked and underappreciated sometimes, right? But the fact is that we should be seeking appreciation from who, and lots of time. And when that is your goal, then no amount of work will bother you. It won't bother you. There are
people who take their work as their mission. And when something is your mission, then you don't mind whether you're doing it at 12 o'clock in the night, or you're doing it at 5pm or 5:30pm. Because people who enjoy their work who love their work, they will do it. They will do it at work, they will do it at home. They're passionate about their work. And I'm not talking about people who are just doing religious work. No, these are people who love the work that they're doing, whether it is that they're selling houses or buying houses, or renovating or whatever they're doing. They're never off duty, because it's their passion. And when something becomes your passion, then you don't mind doing
it. And you don't mind if people are not appreciating you enough or you feel that you're not being paid enough for it. inshallah we will learn from Heidi's later on that companions said, we only ask Allah for the reward for it, meaning we will only deposit our invoice with Allah, we don't want anything from you. When the Prophet sort of altinum asked them for the price of the land on which the mustard was going to be built. They said, We don't want anything from you. We don't want to put a price on it. We only want price from Allah subhanaw taala, we only want the reward from him. So take the example of the prophet SAW the logs and he didn't even take a little bit. There was not
even a dyrham leftover. They're not even at their home. He didn't take anything from it.
This recently I read an article about there was a comparison between the different presidents and kings of the world, and how much money they make every month, or the yearly salary. There was a comparison. And it was amazing that the Muslim countries their leaders took the most except for the one whose salary was $10,000 a year was not any more because he's not the president anymore. But this just shows that a person who is committed to the work that he's doing, he doesn't care about
The money that he's been given for it. For him, What is important is the work, the work that you do the results that you see, that is the best form of repayment. It is the money is not the praise of the people is not the work that you're doing, the results that you see, that's the best thing that you can get.
That means that your effort was worth it. And if you are doing the work, you're making lots of dollars, but at the end, you see nothing, then that's not work that you weren't paid anything for it. And the work of the dean that a person does, the reward is everlasting. It's everlasting, because it's become sadaqa jariya. I read a quote somewhere and it inspires me till today. It motivates me till today that come work for the Lord. The hours are many, the pay is low for the retirement benefits are out of this world. Out of this world
that we see the profits out of Allison is justice that whoever he saw he gave him but sometimes what do we do? We think that okay, if it's this much, let me divided let me distribute it. This person, they deserve this much. So I should give this to them. We get busy in proper allotment and we never end up giving the profits or losses and I'm just gave. Anyway, let's continue.
But Monday, I'm infamous Judy woman, Agia, Buffy Mandara. Lita, I'm infamous, the one who called for food in the masjid a woman a Jabba fee, and the one who responded to it meaning he accepted that invitation and went.
So in other words, is it allowed to give out invitations in the masjid, for food? Because people are gathered over there so you tell them please come over and eat at my place. Come and you know, meet everybody at my house. Is it permissible to do that? Or is the most of being misused? No, it's not being misused. It is allowed to call people over at the masjid it is allowed to even eat at the masjid it's allowed to accept invitations. Yes, buying and selling is not permissible but normal interactions with people it is completely fine.
And the purpose of this is to show that mobile matters, okay which are permissible such mobile matters, they are not laws which are forbidden in the masjid. This is not of those matters, which is forbidden in the masjid. It is permissible. So if something is something like this has been done, don't ever look down on it. That if you see somebody handing out invitations or asking people to come to their house, don't think that they're doing something that is inappropriate at the masjid. It is perfectly fine.
At the center of the law, human use of of Allah nomadic is Hockney or Abdullah semirara NSN Kala widget una vez en la hora to set them up in Masjid. And so the lower Who said I found the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the masjid Mara who nursin with him where some people are going to so I stood for Kali. So he said to me, I'll select palha that avatar has and you will do now? He said yes. for retirement, the proper sort of awesome as did he send you for food for dinner? He said yes, for holliman Hilda who, so he said to those who were around him in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the people who were with him to stand up from Baraka. So he went on to Dr. bainer at him, and I went
before them, meaning he led the way to his house, because I will tell her had sent a message through unece with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam inviting him for food.
So when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said he's invited me for food, and I said, Yes, the prophet SAW the letters and didn't go alone himself, but he took everybody else along with him. And we learned from other narrations, that how there were about 80 people, and that entire food was sufficient for them, because of the Baraka that Allah subhanaw taala placed in it. So we see that it is permissible to invite people for food in the masjid. And it's not necessarily that it should be a walima it could be other ways as well. But one should remember that where these things are permissible in the masjid, they should not become the focus of the masjid. The focus of the masjid
should always remain Salah rabada, the Corolla Corrado and this should always be the focus of the machine. And if that is not the focus and other things become more important, then there is a big problem, because in our heads we learned, the messenger sallallahu Sallam said, There will come a time when people will sit in circles in the masjid and they will have no concern except this dunya and Allah has no need of them. So do not sit with them. As I hear these biohacking reportable hacking, that people who do go to the masjid but their concern is the dunya. So their conversations, their halaqaat everything is revolving around that they because their focus is on you. So remember
that the matters of dounia Mobile matters are permissible in the masjid, but they should not become the focus. Bab al Qaeda lionni film STD
Binary generally when necessary, giving judgments about making judgments when Leon and Leon in the masjid between who the men and the women. So the question is that can a court be established in the mustard? judgments? Can they be passed in the masjid witnesses can they be brought in the masjid? Yes, it is permissible because the masjid primarily place of worship, but at the same time you can also say that it's like a community center right where major things which go on in the community are done.
Had the thinner hair color of Verona of the freezer called Aparna even though the raging color of Bharani ignacy having unsettledness Arden and origin Korea rasulillah a man said O Messenger of Allah, Allah a theologian, or writer, did you see meaning of Whitney Tell me please, if there is a man, whether the man or a T, who has found with his wife Rajan, another man, meaning committing Zina, I have to know who can he kill him? Who? The man committing Zina with his wife. So can he be killed by who by the husband?
For the law, NFL Masjid, so both of them meaning that man and the woman and his wife, they did their arm in the masjid were Anusha hit, and I was a witness who said seven times. He said, I witnessed that, so Leon took place in the masjid. Now, what is Leon Leon is basically when her husband, accuses his wife of Xena, it is done when a husband accuses his wife of Xena. And there are no witnesses to that dinner? Because if a husband sees his wife committing this action, will he call other people to witness that? How can he
and this is something that happens in the house for which other people may not be able to witness? So in this case, his wife if she becomes pregnant, and she's bearing a child who's ascribed to the husband, and in reality, that child is not the husband's child, and how can you tolerate that? And if it's somebody else, you know, their problem, but if it's a man's wife, how can he tolerate that? If he accuses her, then he's in trouble, because you can't speak up until you can produce for witnesses? And if he doesn't accuser, then he has to live with her. How can he a woman who's cheated him in this way? How can he so in this case, the option of Leon, not the option but rather the
command of Leon has been given which we learn in sort of the nude in more detail, basically honors from Latina, right, which is to curse. So the man, he is made to swear all four times that he is right, that she has committed Zina four times he swears this oath. And the fifth time he says that if he is a liar than me the curse of a lobby on him, this is why it's called Leon. And when he will do this, then the punishment is to be carried out on the woman because she has been proven guilty in this manner. But if she believes she's innocent, then she has the right to defend herself how that she will testify four times, she will swear odds four times that she is innocent, and she did not
commit anything like this. And the fifth time she says that if she's alive than me the curse of a lobby upon her. If she does that, then the punishment will not be implemented on her, but the marriage will break. I mean, the two will no longer be together anyway, the detail isn't sort of the note. So we see here that a BA in mustard is permissible. Of all the a judge may pass judgments in the masjid. And this was something that was always practiced before and even later on is permissible. Even though an Indian learner of Allah has been invoked in the mustard you ask Allah for Rama. And here are people asking Allah for his learner, if they are liars, and this is something
serious. But we see that it is permissible.

That he should ask or he is instructed to pray in a particular place, then he should do that. And in choosing a place for oneself, he should not do that. So
that if he goes to somebody's house, you go to somebody's house, and it's okay for you to pray anyway. There's no harm. Don't do the justice. What kind of the justice that a person is going upstairs, downstairs? Okay, let me go make the excuse. I'm going to bring upstairs and opening all the doors and looking at everything, or going downstairs and looking at everything opening all the doors and closets and doing the justice. No, this is something that is not correct. Why? Because people don't like it, that somebody is coming into their house and going around everywhere. Okay, even though you may be a very honest person, but it's not nice that you go to somebody's house and
you're looking here, they're opening every door. It's not correct to do that.
And also, he should not do the justice. Meaning that should not be the focus of a person when he goes to somebody's house. Okay, let me see how clean their houses.
Let me see how clean their drawers are. I'll pretend I'm looking for a prayer mat, and I'll open all the drawers, let me see what junk their stuff their furniture with no, you should not do anything like this. So when a person goes to somebody's house, then he should pray wherever he wants. I, for example, they've made you sit in a particular room. Pray there in one of the corners, one of the sides, there is no harm. And if you feel that it's better to ask them, then you can ask them that. May I pray here? Or would you like me to pray somewhere else? Because you might start praying in their living room, and they have more guests coming? Now everybody's standing in the hallway. Why?
Because you started praying in the middle of the living room.
Right? So this is not appropriate. So in that situation, you will ask them
and sometimes people ask very unnecessary questions. The carpet is clean, right? Do you don't have any dog in your house? Do you have little children? Are they diaper? Well, any accidents ever happened on this carpet? But if you don't need to ask such questions, if they've told you to pray in a particular place, pray there. If they've given you a prayer mat to pray on it. You don't need to ask what happened here. Oh really? Your child peed over here. There was an accident here. Don't ask such questions. You're making the other person uncomfortable.
And remember that dealing should we on the apparent so if somebody told you to pray in a particular place then you should believe that that place is clean. That place is appropriate for salah and don't have shock all the time. That what if something now just fell over here once upon a time no deal on the apparent don't make life difficult for yourself. And other people
have done Abdullah hypno Muslim Mata, but I hadn't even know he would know something I never knew she had been on my mother Middlebury on earth when of new Malik and an obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam utter houfy manzzeli The Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to him in his house for color and he said aina to hibou where do you like and suddenly Allah come in later that I should pray in your house? Where would you like me to pray in your house? Allah He said for a shelter level. So I pointed to him a llama cannon to a particular place for combat on abuse or the law. Where do you send them to the province of autism did that we It was a faff nahal, for who and we formed rows
behind him for Salah riccarton so he performed to the car. Now we see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him where would you like me to pray? to a person may do that. But there was a reason why the prophets Allah asked him this question. Because he was asked to come to his house to pray. So that earthborn would take that place as a Masjid in his house. This is the reason why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him.
But if you are not called for that purpose, to praise Allah, then you can pray anywhere. You know, when is that you go to somebody's house, it's Mother of time you stop there just to pray. So you ask them, where can I pray? No, you can ask them. But if you go to somebody's house for food, and there's open space somewhere and you can pray as long as you're not causing any harm, and it's better to be on the safe side and ask
Bob and massage at Phil booth mosques inside houses.
Now a must have is a place that is dedicated for Salah. And what if a person has a place within his house that is dedicated for Salah?
Is that permissible? Yes, it is. Can you do that? Yes. So in that case, can you call that place muster?
Let's say you have a spare bedroom or let's say a spare den or something like that. And you just pray over there. People who come to your house also pray over there. So can you call that mustard? In the literal sense yes. Why?
because much of this workplace of Sala place of such that so in a literal sense yes we can call it much better as a technical term No, because there is a difference right? Technically you must have this a particular kind of place. Then you have to follow the outcome of massage, enter with the right word you say you perform the hiatal Masjid
five times the salary is established, all the rules will apply and that will become difficult and you have to leave it open for the whole world. And by extension also another question that kind of man praise Allah in his house if he has a place dedicated for Salah
because technically, men are required to pray in jamara at a Masjid that's the rule. That's the rule. The only exception is for people who are not able to inshallah we'll discuss that. But where a person is not able to go to the masjid Can he make a Masjid in his house? Because such a method is what musalla So, a person says okay, there is like five Muslims live on my street. We all have to pray the masjid is 15 minutes away, so my basement is free. I would like this place to be used as a masala Can that be done? Yes, it can be.
Well, Sal Bara of Nora Zyban and Barack Obama as if he prayed he must god he in his Masjid feed dairy in his home Jamal written in Java. So but I've been as a companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not pray in Jama Masjid rather he prayed in the mustard in his house how in jamara why there must have been a reason why they didn't go to the Jama Masjid they prayed in the house but in the most of the house in jamara perfectly fine No it's still a masala inshallah we'll discuss. When is a mustard call the mustard.
had done a series of fading in color had gotten a laser color had that in Iraq Island and he had been called Baroni mahamudra Berry Ansari you and Narita brand of nomadic in that ban bin Malik was a woman as heavy Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he was of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a man from those who Shaheed a veteran who witnessed brother who participated in by the minute and saw that he was from the inside and inside he companion who was there at Bethel. I know who that he utter Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he once came to the Prophet salallahu Salam ala rasulillah and he said O Messenger of Allah, uncomfortable Sorry, my vision has become
weak. I'm not able to see that clearly anymore. We're gonna all suddenly call me and I pray for my people meaning I lead them in Salah. My people meaning people who live close by, I lead them in Salah for either Canada or Ontario. But when there are rains, heavy rains continuously sell where the the where the the valley it becomes flooded, which were the which Valley led benei or bainham which is between me and them. Lamb a stellar I am not able to add the MSG, the home that I come to their Masjid for orsolya behalf and then I pray with them. I'm not able to go to their Masjid and pray with them lead them in Salah. What were they to your rasulillah and I really want a messenger
of Allah in NACA that Dini, that if you could come to me meaning my house for to suddenly fit and you will pray in my house for Adelphi the homeless Allah so I would take it as a masala I want you to come to my house and pray there and then I will take that place as my masala is a place where I would pray for Allah He said for Carla who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the messengers of autism said to himself, do insha Allah inshallah I will do this. Color it when it when said for her that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came in the morning, what Abu Bakr in and Abubakar hanaa is the founder, how, at the time when the day had fully risen, the
day had entered completely. And then he came so you can say it was around 1112 maybe 10 Okay, depending on when the sunrise was. So hey, Nirvana, faster than on assuta lights on a lover and he was alone. So when he came, he asked permission, permission for what?
For entering the house, for into the house. So I permitted for him, for me, at least. So he did not sit down had the whole beta until he entered the house, the makalah and he had said aina to hibou and suddenly I'm in Vedic, where would you like me to pray in your house meeting? He did not sit down when he entered my house, until he asked me this. Allah He said for I shall Tula who so I pointed to him, Elena here the mineral bait or corner of the house for karma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam stood for Kabbalah and he did the creed for canal. So we also stood for softener and we formed rose for salado, Kartini. So
He performed Judo car Soma Salama, and then he did salon. And the Hardee's is long, I would like to mention the benefits that we learn from this part of the Hardee's before we continue.
First of all we see over here that earthborn Allahu anhu the fact that he was from the people of butter is mentioned. And we learn of this about many companions, that when they're mentioned, it is specified that he was someone who was present at. But why, because the people have rather had a very high status in the sight of Allah and in the sight of their companions. Why because it was a great day when Allah pilota to help the Muslims and made them victorious. Therefore, Khan and Allah said about the people of other if I do my shake them, do whatever you wish you are now forgiving. So this was a big deal, because but it was not easy. First Battle. It was not easy being there the most
difficult times and giving it your best even if it means losing your life and sometimes it means losing your sanity. Sometimes the work is so stressful, you get so stressed out.
But if you take that opportunity that can really exalt you to a very high level in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada.
Then we see over here that it burned up the dough and who he was not able to go to the masjid in order to lead his people. First of all, we see that there was a mustard while mustard and Nebo existed. There was a mustard of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, yet there were other massagin in Medina outskirts of Medina. Why? Because everybody did not live five minutes away from the masjid. They could not hear the men. These days. If you consider these places where the people used to live, they're actually part of the masculine have we today, because the machine has expanded so much, but back then it was very small. So there was a need for more massage. So likewise, if there is a need
for more massages in a place, there's no harm because you might say, Oh, this is only 10 minutes away from this mustard. Why are they building another machine over here? You see 111 massages are full, right? They're overflowing. Look at Ramadan look at Juma. So there's always benefit in Sharla. If there are more massages, as long as they're not built in competition and against one another, there is no harm it only creates ease for people in Sharla.
So we see that he was not able to go to his people in order to lead them in prayer. Why? Because of weak eyesight and because of the flood
that will come in the way
and this was an earth shattering. What does it mean by earth shattering?
Or that is what excuse shattering valid by [???]tier, meaning it was a genuine excuse acceptable, which exempted him from going to the mustard. So we see that there are situations where and when a man is allowed to leave the jamara meaning to not pray in congregation to not pray in the masjid.
In which situation when he is marred,
but otherwise, what is margiotta inshallah we'll discuss, but otherwise, he should not leave congregation tomorrow. He should not leave mustard, he should try his best to go to the masjid and pray in congregation. And if it's not possible to go to the masjid, then you should still try to pray in tomorrow, even if it's with just one more person. Why? Because there's so many Hadees that prove to us the obligation of performing Salah in Congregation for the men, you know, karma to saara one of the first conditions is what jamara for the men, Congregation for the men. And remember that there are only some fuqaha from the Hanafi school of thought they said that jamara is not an
obligation on the men. Otherwise, all of the scholars of Islam, all of the scholars, they said that jamara is an obligation that we must allow our new said, whoever would like to meet a lot tomorrow as a Muslim, then let him offer these prayers regularly, when the call to prayer is given for what Allah has prescribed for your Prophet, his guidance. And this is part of that guidance. If you were to pray in your houses as this man who stayed home dead, then you would have given up one of the centers of your profit. And if you give up a center of your profit, you will go astray. There is no man who does will do and does it well then goes to one of these mosques, but for every step he takes
Allah will record one has enough for him and erases one bad deed. There was a time when no one stayed away from the prayer but a hypocrite who's a bankruptcy was well known, and a man would come supported by to others so that he could stand in the role he could pray in German. So there are many evidences that showed this is an obligation. But at the same time, there are situations when a person is exempted. And when is a man martlew
I'm telling you this not because it's an obligation on you, but because there are men who live with you, whether they are your husbands or your sons, and it is your responsibility to encourage them to pray in the masjid, or at least in jamara
encourage them and help them because sometimes women become a cause of stopping their husbands from going to the mustard. So we should not become a cause of stopping them we should be in fact encouraging them because remember, this is an obligation on them. The only situations when they're exempted is when when they're unable to because of poor health, because they're sick. But even then, we see that a man would come taking supportive to others to get to them.
Secondly, bad weather. Like in this situation, there was a flood when he didn't go the profits of a lot of Nintendo you should go bad weather like for example, heavy snow, there's a storm heavy rain, a person is not able to vote, they don't have to go okay they can pray by themselves. Another reason which is of most relevance to us is long distance. Okay, long distance. And as a result of that, not being able to hear the other because the person who hears the other then then he has to respond to the other and then he has to go to the masjid and bring that congregation. But when a person does not hear the other end that is given, because obviously, over here, the other one is not given on
loudspeaker so that people can hear outside. Then in that case, you don't hear the other than the machine is too far away. In that case a person is exempt from going to the masjid. It is said prayer and congregation is obligatory for those who live close to the mosque not for those who live far away.
have also said the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the people who will have the greatest reward for prayer are those who come the furthest distance where a person is allowed to stay behind. Yet if he tries, then he will have the most reward. Shareholders even Baz was asked about a man who lives in a house far away from the mosque and has to use a car to go to the masjid. Because if he goes in first he will miss the prayer. Or obviously it will take him too long. It will exhaust him. So in this case, the question is, can you pray at home with some other men? I mean, they pray and jamara they make a damar in their house, can they do that because the mustard is too far they will have to drive
there. So he said, You have to pray with your Muslim brothers in the mosque. If you can hear the air then in your home at a normal volume without the aid of loudspeakers. When other sounds are silent, and there is nothing to prevent you from hearing it. If you are far away, and cannot hear the other end without the loudspeakers, it is permissible for you to pray in your house or with some of your neighbors because it was proven that the prophets Allah sent himself to the blind man, when he asked him for permission to pray in his house. Can you hear the call to prayer? And he said yes. So the prophets of Allah sent him said, then answer it. So if you can hear the other then you have to go
over here you can't hear. So he said, she has been vast, he continued. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, whoever hears the call to prayer and does not come there is no prayer for him. whoever hears the call to prayer and does not come, there is no prayer for him except for the one who has an excuse. So he said, If you answered the call of the medicine, even though you live far away, and you take the trouble to come on foot or by car, then that is better for you. And Allah will reward you for your footsteps do and from the masjid, so long as you are sincere and have the right intention. Because it was narrated that there was a man who lived far from the Prophet's mosque, but he never
missed a prayer with the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It was said to him, Why do you not buy a donkey that you can ride when it is hot, and when it is very dark at night, he said, I would not like my house to be close to the masjid for I want my walking to the masjid and back to my family to be recorded. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, Allah will grant you all of that.
So there's great reward for it. Now in this country here in the land in your home is impossible. And driving or walking to the masjid is also not an option for many people. Because literally for some people, it takes an hour 20 minutes one way 20 minutes for a solid 20 minutes back takes an hour in the evenings. Perhaps you can do that but during work hours, how can you so in this case, what should the man do? Go to the masjid at least once a day, even if it takes an hour, preferably Russia or budget, and if both are possible, then both should be done. And it's about making a habit. But encourage your men to go to the masjid at least once a day. If they can make it in Ramadan. Every
night for that hour we stay until 12 one than why not throughout the year, at least one solid in the machine because for a man mustard is very very important. At least one Salah should be in German and as
Mothers, they should give the training to their sons. There are many men who go to the masjid. Why? Because their mothers drove them every day. their mothers drove them every day. Because sometimes the father's not interested. It's father's job, he should be taking them. Okay. But if he's not going, why should your son be deprived? Don't you care for his food and drink in his clothes? About his education? Yes, mothers drive their children everywhere. So also drive them to the masjid and back so that they develop a habit, it becomes a routine and becomes like a part of their nature. So that if for some reason, once a diamond is missed in the master, they feel as if they haven't prayed
properly. So at least once Allah should be performed, even if it takes an hour. Secondly, the rest of the prayers which cannot be in the masjid, they should pray in Dima, with who, with the family members, or at work with coworkers if there are Muslims over there. Then why not and and hamdulillah these days, you will find Muslims everywhere. You never know that because of your efforts, somebody else might start praying regularly.
Yes, there are many neighborhoods where I myself have seen a house, okay, where there must be those converted into a masala. And this is in Mississauga, by the way, their whole street, many, many Muslims over there. So what they had done was they had hired a full on teacher who would teach for under the children in the evenings in their basement. And at the same time, people would also come for Salah, and they didn't have a separate entrance for the basement.
But anyway, this was something that they had done in their house. And even if they weren't praying five times in German in their masala at least twice or thrice. So at work at home, praying in congregation with other men, because the prophets are a lot of sentiment, he would like to pray wherever he was, inshallah we will learn about this, that he would pray wherever he was. And obviously that would be in JAMA.
Because it's not possible for you to always be close to the masjid. Otherwise, how will you go about your daily life?
If a person says no, no, I have to pray in the masjid. So that's why I cannot go anywhere between this and this time. And the only time I have to go anywhere is this one hour in the evening. Because that gives me enough time to go then you can't have any life. So you have to go about doing your daily things. But pray in Jamal. There are several communities somebody told me in the states also. You did right? Where is it? in Buffalo there is a community and Muslim community where they have built houses around the masjid and then everything goes to the houses so people can hear the event in their house and they go to the masjid for Salah as well.
So, a lot of investment has to be done in this but where there's a will there's a way as well. I mean, there are masajid in this city also which are in neighborhoods basically and people bought houses close to that mustered intentionally so that they could pray there regularly.
Then we also see over here that in the house at work, wherever a person is most of the time and masala should be established. Were going to the masjid all the time is not possible. So for example, if a man is not able to go to the masjid five times a day, but he finds that he prays three prayers in the house. Okay? Do he can pray in the masjid the three Salawat are at home. Then dedicated place for Salah or pray in jamara over there.
But remember that praying in the masala is a secondary option. What's the first option in the mustard when that is not possible then great in masala. Now what's the difference between a mustard and a massala a mustard. Mustin is a place which is prepared for the purpose of offering five silhouette on a permanent basis on a permanent basis. And that place is devoted for that purpose.
And it will select a prayer room or a prayer place is a place that is used for prayer occasionally, such as maybe two prayers per day, three prayers per day maybe one celebrity or for eat for funeral, so on and so forth.
And it is not set aside as for the five daily prayers she had on earth Amy was asked about the difference between a mosque and a prayer room and when a place may be regarded as a mosque as a Masjid. He replied with regard to the general meaning the entire Earth is a must. Because the prophets of Allah said the earth has been made a place of frustration and it means of purification for me with regard to the specific meaning a mosque is a place that has been prepared for the purpose of prayer on a permanent basis and is allocated specifically for that. Whether it is built of stones, mud or
cement or not, whether you just built or not, that doesn't make a difference, but it is dedicated for solid that is mustard with regard to the prayer room or prayer place, it is a place that a person uses to pray in, but he does not make it a place of prayer on a permanent basis. rather he prays there. If the time for prayer comes, this is not a mosque. And the evidence for that is this Hadees of Rick Berman Malik,
then we also learn this idea that if you are going to begin something good, then before you start it, ask someone to come and join you in that, right like, for example, when a little or no, he wanted to start praying in his house, whenever there was a need to do that. And he asked the prophets that a lot of them to come and pray. Why? Yes, definitely. He's coming and praying over they would mean Baraka, inshallah, Allah subhanaw taala will bless that. But what happens is that, when you're starting something new, something good, and you ask other people to come, then what happens is that with their doors, or because you do live or call jamara, right, and Allah subhanaw
taala has helped us in that, because it happens many times that people start their, let's say, a class, and could be in the same city, but they don't tell other people about it at all, even to maybe their teacher, they don't inform them at all. And what happens is that, it seems like there is a competition over here. But when people work together, they ask, let's say, their teacher, or their ex in charge, or whoever to come and be there for the orientation or something, then what happens is that more people get know about it. There's more hair in Sharla, there's unity, there's the eyes, so inshallah more will come out in it. But if every person begins their own Masjid,
then this will divide people not unite them.
This will divide people not unite them. So we need to stay united. And yes, as more people start to participate in something, the work will grow, it will spread. But it's necessary that we stay connected with each other.
Right? It's not humanly possible for people to come to one place only and work with only one organization. Things happen, life changes, right? situations change. But when we start something new, let's keep others informed of it.
And then people also get confused that what's going on? Is this competition is is this unity? What is it that was there a problem? Is there something that I didn't find out about what's going on over here? So it's necessary to stay together with our winner, I believe at the core.
And you get an In fact, what happens is that when you inform other people, when you ask them to come in, have their share as well, then you get more help from them too.
There could be something that you're struggling with because it's the first time you're dealing with it. And you find out that the same issue because of their experience, they know the answers, they know how to deal with it.
If you had asked them if you had informed them, if you had taken their help, your work would have been much easier. But we just like to reinvent the wheel all the time. Unfortunately.
Then we all just learn over here the Prophet sallallahu said and he said
I will do it in sha Allah it is said that this was Friday when Earth van came for selected tomorrow to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And the next day Saturday, the prophets of Allah Islam came to his house. First thing in the morning he came and we see that he came in the morning. Why? Because whatever is important, you should do it in the morning, along with basically Almighty FIBA Korea. The prophets are a lot of them to permission. Because no matter who you are, when you go to somebody's house, you need permission.
And again, we see the focus of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he came for Salah. That's the first thing he did. He didn't even sit down until he asked, Where would you like me to pray? So whatever your focus is, first of all, know what you have to do. Unfortunately, we go to work, we go to school, and we have no idea what we have to do we go and we ask people, okay, so what am I supposed to do today? What am I supposed to do today, you should know.
You should know you've been coming and doing something for the past one year for the past one month by now you should have a clear idea every single day what you're going to do, and if you don't have an idea, there's a big problem. And if you don't have an idea, five minutes, go through an email, go through your diary and see what you have to do today. And what you have to do, just get to it, just do it. Don't wait for other people to instruct you to order you take initiative and stay focused. Also we see other murasaki will be the respect that is shown to the to the person of the house to the owner of the house, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him where would you like me to pray and
also receive the Prophet sallallahu Sallam prayed. He led the prayer what's
okay, you can say it was time to habit seems like it was a little bit after that. Or even if it's around that is not fun. So what does it show that? That knuffle prayers can be performed in congregation every day? No, sometimes, because that's what the prophets did sometimes. So just like that if you are praying knuffle prayers in congregation sometimes there's absolutely no harm in that. Okay? Like for example, new classes beginning the entire staff has told come in early we're all going to pray Salah together right now for seeking our last panel TARDIS help Hydra. Is that permissible? Yes. Is it a bidder? No. Because it sometimes in the morning knuffel jamara dislike the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam did that we see every Baccarat player I know that he was with him. In other nations we find out the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came in with Abu Bakar and after some time, Omar Abdullah and who also came so we see that the prophet SAW a lot of sin wouldn't go alone. His companions would come along with him but it shows the felida of ibaka He's always found with the prophets of Allah
and also one more thing that the prophets of Allah has accepted the invitation right but his request that please come and pray in my house we think oh, we should only go when there is a big event right or when there is food
the Hadith these continues but the time is up so inshallah we will complete it next time.
So panic alone will be handed to a lady the healer and tennis the federal governor to be like I said, I'm already called
