Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

Kareem

00:00:07--> 00:00:50

mina shavon rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim rubbish Riley sorry were silly MD. Why on earth that Emily Sania Coco Lee probenecid nerima. So, we were learning about no mystery jelly fill Masjid, the sleeping of men in the masjid meaning is that permissible or not, because some people they regarded this as incorrect because the massage it their primary purpose is what their function is what for worship, they are built for the purpose of worship, and if a person goes to sleep over there, then that kind of defeats the purpose and if one person is sleeping in the masjid, then that affects the worshipers over there. So, this is the reason why some scholars they discouraged sleeping in the

00:00:50--> 00:01:36

masjid. However, when there is a reason, then it is permissible. Like for example, a person is there for a long time for the purpose of studying or for the purpose of worshiping. And during that time he wishes to take a short nap, that is completely fine. Likewise, if there is a person who doesn't have a house or who doesn't have a family of his own, and he happens to come to the mercy to take a nap that is also permissible as long as a person also performs well over there. Sleeping is permissible. Last Hades in this web had does not use of Marisa Kala Hadassah is known for Balian and a B here and be hasn't been under the hood a lotta bother. He said, A to I saw Sabrina 70 minutes

00:01:36--> 00:01:55

have is so Fatty, from the people of a sofa, mermin home, there was not among them, or Julian any man I lay upon it reader on a reader, meaning I saw 70 of the people of the sofa, and not even a single man amongst them had a clue.

00:01:57--> 00:02:47

Then what did they were, they had in his own either an ISA, which is a waste wrapper, lor garment, or ima, or kissa. kissa is like a long shirt, a sheet that is worn like a long shirt. So they either had ease out or they had kisser, meaning they didn't have two pieces of cloth, they had only one, one that was too small to just cover their waist and the area underneath. Or if it was bigger than they would use it as a long shirt, that is all that they owned. And if it was a longer piece of cloth, kisa then, in fact, Roboto they had tied it to him around their necks from in house or from it Mayor blue, that which would reach this first airplane half of cellophane SAP is the lower leg.

00:02:47--> 00:03:30

So the middle of the lower leg, that was the length of it, meaning the kisser that some of them would wear and they were tied around their necks, it would be long enough to come down all the way to the middle of the lower leg, lower part of the neck, woman her and from it may appear blue that which would reach and curbing the ankles meaning some of them they had longer sheets. So if they would wear it around their necks, it would come all the way down to their ankles for a drummer who via D so he would gather it with his hands why why would he gathered and hold it in his hands go out here out of this like and to our our tool that his private part may be exposed. And this was a state

00:03:30--> 00:04:11

of how many companions 70 companions and Who were they? They were as horrible suffer, who was horrible. So for the people who stayed at the masjid, if they stayed at the masjid, that means that they also slept over there. So this means sleeping at the masjid is permissible. But there are many other things that we learned in this Hardee's besides the fact that sleeping in the masjid is permissible. The fact that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam look at the struggles that they went through, amongst them poverty. Poverty is something that really discourages a person, you know, it kind of shatters his confidence. It's a big demotivator you could say, a person could

00:04:11--> 00:04:45

be very, very enthusiastic about their work. But when they suffer from poverty, then their greatest mission even they're willing to leave it. Why? Because at the end of the day, you have to fulfill your needs. But we see that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they sacrificed their needs, even for this great mission. And what was that mission to be in the companionship of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because this is only one in a lifetime opportunity. You can never have this again.

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

So they gave up everything. They had the potential to make money, but they gave up everything just to be in the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that is where they worship. That is where they learned, and they were the people who went with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Also, they were the foremost and everything. And they were also from the Mohajer in primary magining. They were not the locals of Medina. They were people who had come from outside of Medina, from McCann from various other tribes, they could easily live in their homes, but they gave up all of that live with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:05:18--> 00:05:59

And they suffer from so much poverty that they didn't even have enough clothes, not even one of them possessed two pieces of cloth, a lower garment and an upper garment, they possessed only one piece of cloth, which was just enough to cover their Allah. If it was long enough, they were tied around their necks and this was especially in the solder. And in the solid, they would hold it with their hands, gathering it up with their hands, why out of fear that there are little would be exposed. So this shows to us that during further if a person has this fear that they're alone may be exposed, then it is permissible to hold the garment in your hand. Like for example, if a woman has short

00:05:59--> 00:06:36

sleeves on or something and she has a shawl on to cover up her arms as she spring, and during the flesh, she realizes that if I let go, my arm might be exposed, for example, in raising up the hands, so she may hold a part of it in her hand, but remember that this is not ideal thing to do, but it is permissible. Likewise, this Hadees also shows that men may wear garments that are long enough that reach their ankles even what we know is what is below the ankle should not be there, especially when it's out of pride. Okay, but what is above the ankle what reaches the ankle? That is permissible, perfectly fine.

00:06:37--> 00:06:53

But a solidarity prayer, either Kadima when he comes when he advances men suffering from a journey, meaning performing Salah when a person comes back from a journey when a person returns from a trip, then what should he do? He should praise Allah.

00:06:55--> 00:06:55

Were

00:06:56--> 00:07:34

in the masjid, or Carla and he said who caribou Malik in garb even Malika de la hora. He said Karen abuso de la where to send them the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to what does it mean by Canada used to that this was his habit. This was his habit that either Kadima men suffering when he would return from a journey. But he would begin with a machete from the masjid meaning he would come to the masjid first. He wouldn't go home, he wouldn't go to the market, he wouldn't go to any person's house. The first place he would go to was the masjid for Salah fee. And then he would pray in it

00:07:36--> 00:07:40

when the carbon medical dinner and who say this and who is carbon Malik, by the way.

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

Now many of you have studied so Toba.

00:07:45--> 00:08:23

He was one of the three companions who stayed behind from the expedition to the book. And in the long Hades, right in which he has mentioned the entire story of how he stayed behind and of how, how he suffered from the boycott, literally. So in that he had mentioned that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whenever he would turn from a journey, he would go to the masjid first. And when he was at the masjid, people started coming to him and presenting their excuses. So carbon medic, he was also advised to go and do something similar, but he refrained from that. So anyway, we see over here that this was the habit of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this was his usual practice. What do

00:08:23--> 00:09:02

you think the wisdom is? Or the reason is rather, why would he go to the masjid long journey, not just a couple of hours, sometimes months and weeks, several days, and he's going to the masjid and performing Salah first thing he does do a lot over to it, his honor. The coolness of his eyes was insula, so that's something that comforted him, that's something that relaxed him. So this is the reason why he performed to the counselor as gratitude to Allah right expression of thankfulness that we have come home safely to ask for a loss of special blessings on arriving home. That basically when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam established this norm, that whenever people returned from a

00:09:02--> 00:09:34

journey First they go to the masjid then what would happen is that the news would spread very quickly that such and such travelers are back, okay. And then their family members at home, they will find out that okay, this group of travelers is back, our son or my husband or whoever was also in that group. So he is in the masjid now. He will be home shortly. So prepare before he comes back. So any preparations that the family had to do, they would have some time to do that.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

This is just like if you know that your husband or your father returns at a certain time, then you are prepared. And if you have no idea, then you're not prepared. Okay? And preparation doesn't mean that you have to have great food prepared for them. Sometimes it's just being mentally ready to welcome them. Because if somebody just walks in unexpectedly, then even though you love them, you're not too happy to see them.

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

So this is a reason why it was easy for the family members and back in that time there were no cell phones, no telegraph system either to inform the family at home that we will be here within a day or two. So this is one of the main hikma you can say.

00:10:16--> 00:11:00

And also it shows the love that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had for the mystic. We learned that in Medina, first thing he did when he migrated there was what? He built the mustard. Right? And then every time he would come back home, he would go to the masjid first. had done a whole lot of new your hair color had this and I miss out Paula had the Santa mojari boo deciding and Jeb live near Abdullah Pereira, he said, A Daytona beistle Allahu alayhi wa sallam wahoo Masjid jabber bin Abdullah he said I came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he was in the masjid. Allah miss out Miss or the narrator. He said Rahul I think Allah Buddha He said it was the time of Buddha. Meaning

00:11:00--> 00:11:49

when he arrived for Karla so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said to Javid when Abdullah suddenly riccarton performed to the Japanese Edward Kennedy alayhi deignan. And there was for me on him a debt meaning he owed me something, okay, the profit or loss and him owed me something for cavani. So then he repaid me Was there any and he gave me more, increased it for me. So the reason why he came was to ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for what he owed him to the Prophet sallallahu told him first to pray. After his prayer, then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam paid him and he also gave him more. Do you know what this is referring to which incident it is? What is it the Prophet sallallahu

00:11:49--> 00:11:56

Sallam all together? The camel. Basically we learned that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was returning from a Causeway

00:11:57--> 00:12:02

and jab had been under law he was amongst the companions who were with the prophets of Allah, dishonor.

00:12:04--> 00:12:43

And Jabba widow, who he was very poor, he had only one camera. And that camera was used for irrigation and working in the fields. And that same camel job will be the one who took to the reservoir and now he's coming back on it. So basically, that camera was very, very slow. He was walking very, very slowly. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, What is the matter with you? So Java rabelo are new. He said, My camel is slow and tired, so I am left behind. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got down from his camel and he poked the camel of jabil Alberto, I know from the back, okay, kind of like hit him. And he prayed for the camera. He had him and he also prayed for

00:12:43--> 00:13:08

the camel. So Java who I knew when he started writing is camel it was walking so fast that he went to head off the rest of the people. So the profits or losses as Java, will you sell this camel to me? Who are who hesitated. Why? Because that was the only camera and are finally it was walking so fast. But it was a profitable artisan who was asking so how could you refuse? So he said Okay, I will.

00:13:09--> 00:13:45

And a price was set, a certain amount of gold was set and a little bit lower in his head but on the condition that I will write this Campbell to Medina, I have to get back home. When I get back home then you will get the candle for me. It is at the job with a little or no he went earlier ahead of everybody. Why? Because he had just gotten married. And over that incident for profits or losses and asked him the did you marry a young girl or an older one? Right? So he said that my father passed away leaving behind a young daughter so I made an older woman so that she would take care of them. So anyway, this incident happened at this occasion. So jabiru Boulevard who went early, the Prophet

00:13:45--> 00:14:23

sallallahu Sallam he got to Medina, he went to the masjid. And when he was there, who and who then came to the masjid to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he hadn't been to the masjid yet. So when he came to the masjid, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him are you arriving now? He said, Yes, I'm coming to the masjid. Now. The Prophet Allah has been told him go pray first. So he went and prayed to the car. And then the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he had beloved on her way, the gold and gave it to jack little to no one. So he gave him the price for who and who went back home, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said for him. So he came again. And he was afraid that the Prophet sallallahu

00:14:23--> 00:14:47

Sallam was going to return the candle, that he's going to say, Give me my money back. I don't want this camel anymore. And it is said the jab widow or who hated that candle is obviously if it's slow, then who would enjoy such a right? But the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he gave him the camel without asking for the money without asking for the gold saying that take the price for it. And the camel.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

What a beautiful thing.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

That first of all, Java 11 when his father had passed away, he had just gotten married. He had so many sisters to look after. He sacrificed his desire

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

His comfort for the sake of his family. He also participated in his work. So the profit center, he gave him this gamble and some gold. This was the love that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had for his companions.

00:15:15--> 00:15:48

So anyway, Jarrod knew he said that he for Cardone was Danny. He gave it to me in four and he gave me more out of your son. But from here we learn that when the prophets of Allah is and adore, who are and who pray to the car, what does that show that when a person returns home, then at the masjid you should perform to look on Salah. And earlier we learned that the prophets Allah Mollison, this was his habit.

00:15:49--> 00:16:08

Okay, and here we see that he's telling a companion to do it as well. So what is this show? This was not something exclusively for him. This was his habit, yes. But he also told his companions to do the same. So just like that, we should also practice this

00:16:09--> 00:16:55

and you will see a difference that when you come back to your city, if you go to the masjid pray you do will do you freshen up, prayer Salah. You will be relaxed when you go home. Otherwise, what happens if you go home straight? You have so much work to do so many things on your mind, especially women, right? Of course, right? As soon as you get home, you're just swarmed by the work that you have to do. So if you stop, pray First, it will calm you down, relax you It gives you time to reorient yourself. So develop this online shop. The practice isn't mentioned by either the whole Masuda folio car rocker attaining either the horn and mustard when he enters the masjid foliar

00:16:55--> 00:16:58

Corrado Kartini, then he should pray to the car.

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

Earlier we learned when a person

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

returns from a journey, here we learn when a person goes to the masjid,

00:17:07--> 00:17:44

for what purpose, any purpose, whether it is to praise Allah or it is to attend a gathering of knowledge or it is to meet somebody or it is to work with somebody whatever it is, when a person goes to the masjid, what should he do? He should perform to Dakar, Salah, which Salah is this, the here to the masjid that is called the Haier Tomasi What does the here mean? greeting. So, the here Tomas is greeting the mosque. So when you go to the masjid, you have to greet the mosque, how? By saying Salah by performing Salah already

00:17:45--> 00:18:16

had the center of de la have new use of color on America and American Europe delay of misery and amrani Sulaiman azula Pinkie and a bill patata A salami and asuna la he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam McCall, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said either the hola Dooku Masjid, when one of you enters the masjid, fill your car rock it then he should perform to the car oblah before I near Julissa that he sits down.

00:18:17--> 00:18:25

So, when a person goes to the machine, before he even sits down, what should he do? He should perform to the car.

00:18:28--> 00:18:28

What does it show?

00:18:30--> 00:18:39

That you have a choice over here? What does it show that it is important very important, how important is it some said it is larger.

00:18:40--> 00:18:43

And others said that this is was the hub and some said this is sooner.

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

Anyway, the purpose of the hater mustard, like I said earlier is to greet the mosque.

00:18:52--> 00:19:06

It is to greet the mosque, how, with Salah when immediately upon entering it or in the hole right immediately upon entering it before sitting down before doing any work. The first thing is pray to Raka

00:19:07--> 00:19:19

Why? Because most of this bill for what Salah that's the main purpose. So when you go to the masjid you have to fulfill that purpose. This is why the first thing you do at the masjid is pray.

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

The first thing you should do is pray. Now

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

what if you go to the masjid and the fourth What is going on?

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

Then you pray the hater machine and then pray No no, you will join the false Allah. Okay? Likewise, what if you go at a time when let's say you're going for salah and you have just enough time to pray your so number four, the obedience. So in that case, should you pray the hater machine or should you pray? sadhana? So now Why? Because the objective of the huddled masses is still being met. What is the objective The first thing you do is pray.

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

So, whether it is font or it is sooner or it is nephal, whatever it is, you should pray something before you sit down before you do anything.

00:20:11--> 00:20:52

Good question. If the hookah is going on, of Serato then what do you do? You have to pray to the car and then sit down because whatever is hot, okay, eventually there will be solid, but you should pray, do not fall before sitting down. And what's the evidence for that? The Hadith in which we learned, so like a lot of funny, he came to the masjid on Friday when the Prophet Solomon was giving the hookah and he sat down today, he sat down the Prophet a lot of them stopped, but and he said to him, also, like stand up and perform to Dakar and make them short this report in Bukhari and Muslim. So when you go to the masjid, if let's say the event is going on, okay, then you can stand and wait

00:20:52--> 00:21:20

for the event. And pay because you should respond to the event, make your draw, and then perform your due rocker and then pray whichever sauna you have to but if the hookah is going on, that will go on for some time, and it will be followed by Salah so you need to sit down it is not correct at the hotel standing and a person is standing in front of him. So in that case, he will pray to rocker and then sit down. You can also if you have time to pray only for you pray to

00:21:21--> 00:21:24

you're going to a Masjid or in Salah.

00:21:25--> 00:22:12

Why are you going to pray Salah? Let's say you were out somewhere. It's time for us. You only have enough time to pay yourself. So what should you do? You have to pay the heat on budget first and then perform your solar. If you have the time go ahead and do it. But if you don't have the time, then you can just pray your solar Why? Because you are going to pray immediately because in the Hadees what do we see for Leo Corona? Kartini, Cobra ageless, the objective is not to record the objectivist Salah before sitting down the objective is Salah before doing anything. So whether that is false or Sunnah, or novel, it's okay as long as it is some sort of the question is with regards

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

to the forbidden diamonds

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

meaning the time when a person is not allowed to pray What are those times

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

after fudger

00:22:22--> 00:22:32

after isolation so in these two times can a person braid the hair to match it or not? There is if there is difference of opinion some scholars say yes and other scholars say no.

00:22:33--> 00:23:02

But we see that when it comes to these timings right for example if there is a person who has not been able to pray his awesome salah and there's just a few minutes left before Mohammed is he going to pay us Yes, because in the Hadees What do we learn even if he can catch one blocker he should Same thing for budget okay. So it means that praying for that in itself is not forbidden in those times.

00:23:04--> 00:23:24

Okay, praying Salah in itself is not forbidden in those times. This is why some scholars said that if a person goes to the masjid and he has to sit down to read Quran to sit in a gathering of knowledge, then even if it's after or after fudger What should you do you should pray to local

00:23:26--> 00:23:59

because what will take precedence over here? The fact that he's entering the masjid and he has to greet the masjid just like when you have to catch your muscles that will take precedence okay you will do that. So just like that when you're coming to the masjid okay the headmaster will take precedence So, that is what you will do, but remember that the headmaster is not an obligation according to the majority of the scholars. So if you are ever in such a place where you know that people will object,

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

okay, like certain massages, you go you know that people will definitely object if you start putting the heat on Masjid at this time, then what should you do pray and create fitna

00:24:09--> 00:24:36

should you do that? No. You should not pray then go do something else. Okay. read Quran reader to us. Because you should not create fitna over these matters you know Imam Malik I believe he was of the opinion that you should not pray the hater Mashallah nice times, if I'm not mistaken, it was him. And once he came to the masjid, it was that time so he just sat down to somebody told him to get up and pray.

00:24:37--> 00:24:46

So he got up and prayed. Why, because he didn't want to be of those people. Who when they're told, pray, and they say we don't pray.

00:24:47--> 00:24:53

Okay, so even if you have a different opinion, but you don't want to create it,

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

so avoid that fitna to the best of your ability. And remember, it is not a matter of

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

And haraam,

00:25:03--> 00:25:16

okay? So don't be an extremist about these issues. Take it lightly in the sense that don't make a big deal out of it where you get the opportunity, pray. And if you don't get the opportunity, don't be too hard on yourself.

00:25:17--> 00:25:27

Alright? And remember the Hadees of those three people who came to the masjid the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sitting with his companions, one person came and said,

00:25:28--> 00:25:38

you know, towards the front, another person towards the back and another person he went back. So the first two who sat down we don't find out about them that they prayed and then they sat down.

00:25:40--> 00:25:42

They came to the masjid and they joined the halaqa

00:25:43--> 00:26:25

it is not reported that they prayed there to hater Masjid and then they sat down in the halaqa. So what does it show? That it is not YG it is Mr. hub, it is Sonoma Akina, but it is not YG does acula Hello for pointing that out? That if a class is going on, and you have to join the class, that will take precedence over something that will take precedence over Mr. Hall. So the best thing is that you come early, you perform you to hit the masjid, and then you join the class. Alright? And if you have come late and you've missed the time to pray the hair to Masjid, then remember that your commitment which is a father will take precedence over that which is muster.

00:26:26--> 00:26:27

All right.

00:26:29--> 00:26:35

If you are traveling you go to a Masjid. Can you pray the heater muscle? Yes, you can. It's nothing.

00:26:36--> 00:27:09

And this is the reason why. When a person is traveling, he can perform such prayers. Okay, one more question. If a person goes to the masjid, and he sits down, and then he remembers I was supposed to pay the headmaster. So what should they do? Get up and pray. If you forgot, it's okay just get up and pray. Just like that man. Today he came sat down and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him get up and pray. So just because you have sat down doesn't mean you cannot pray anymore. You can still pray provided that you have the time. Bob and Heather the film

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

breaking will do in the masjid

00:27:14--> 00:27:16

meaning is it permissible or not?

00:27:18--> 00:27:56

It is permissible to break will do in the masjid. And now when it comes to urination obviously that is something that is not permissible in the masjid because it will make the masjid dirty. And we know from the Hadith of the Bedouin, okay when he urinate in the midst of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advised him not to do that again because the machine is not built for such a purpose. However, if a person is in the masjid and he passes, when is that permissible or is that not allowed? Some scholars said that it is disliked, it is disliked others went to the extent of saying that it is held on inshallah we'll tell you the reasons why. But when Buhari has proven over here

00:27:56--> 00:28:14

that it is permissible to deliberately break one's will do when he is in the masjid. Okay, it is permissible to do that meaning it's not haram However, a person should be courteous towards other worshippers and angels. And this by extension means that someone who does not have to do can also enter the masjid.

00:28:15--> 00:28:53

Meaning his case is different from a Juniper Juniper. It's a different case altogether. But a person doesn't have to do can they go to the masjid and sit there? He has taken let's say there is a halaqa going on a class going on. Okay, you have to go attend that. You don't have to do when you enter the masjid. Can you go join the class immediately? Yes, you can. You don't have to go do will do and then enter the masjid you can enter without will do as well. Likewise, if you're sitting in the masjid, doing the Korean code and sitting in a headlock and you break your will do Is that wrong? No, it's not wrong. I had the center of the law have no use of color on Amharic and obz Nadia and

00:28:53--> 00:29:27

ology and Abby who a lotta under Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said and malayaka to the angels, to suddenly Allah a honeycomb. They pray for one of you Madonna as long as he remains fee in Muslim Allah who his prayer place Allah de that which Salafi he prayed in it. Malamute this as long as he does not break his will do the Hulu they say meaning the angel say Allahu Allahu, Allahu

00:29:28--> 00:29:41

Allah forgive him, or Allah have mercy on him. So what does this Hadees show to us? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that when a person performs his sada and he remains sitting over there.

00:29:42--> 00:29:52

So you said your Salaam and us continue to sit there you do not get up, you do not go away. You do not talk to anybody. You continue to sit there doing what? Obviously remembering Allah.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Then as long as you remain sitting over there, what will happen the angels will continue

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

To make to offer you what there are Allahumma phila who along but humble. If you sit for five minutes, those five minutes angels are making these thoughts for you. If you sit for 15 minutes, the angels continue to make this draft for you. It's up to you basically, however long you want to sit and you want the draw of the angels, malam your this as long as he does not break his will, meaning that when a person breaks his will do, then the angels, they start praying for him. Or if a person gets up, then the angels start making dua for him. Now, many times it happens that as soon as we, Sara, Sam immediately want to get up and either talk to people or go or do something. So give

00:30:44--> 00:31:00

yourself some time. After that, just sit there force yourself to sit there. And sometimes we don't know what to make for ourselves. If you don't know let the angels make the offer you let the angels make offer you and the devil of the angels. Is that a big deal? How?

00:31:02--> 00:31:08

Because it is accepted in sha Allah. In the Quran, what do we learn? well as for owner, illa lemonis.

00:31:10--> 00:31:14

They do not do Shabaab except for the one who Allah is pleased with.

00:31:15--> 00:31:31

So if the angels are making draw for a person, that means in sha Allah that Allah is happy with that person. So as long as you remain sitting after Salah without breaking your will for that entire time. Imagine Allah is happy with you.

00:31:32--> 00:32:20

Exactly. Yes. Especially after Fredrik sitting until the sunrises and even otherwise during the day after any solar as long as a person sits there, but obviously shavon makes a time seem so long that we get sleepy or we remember so many other things to do. But tell yourself five minutes 15 minutes. You really experienced this calmness when you sit after Salah. Just peacefully doing your God. Even if it's five minutes it makes a difference. Huge difference. So in this Hadith, what do we learn? The main reason why men Buhari is quoting this hadith is Malamute this, which means that if a person breaks his will do then the angels will stop praying for him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't

00:32:20--> 00:33:03

say none of you should, you know break your will do in the masjid. So this means that it is permissible to break the window in the masjid. Why? Because sometimes a person doesn't have a choice, it's an urgent need and he cannot control himself much. So in that situation, remember that it is okay. However, a person must be careful Why? Because the smell it doesn't only annoy people, but it also annoys the angels in Hades we learn the angels are offended by the same things that offend the sons of Adam. So, this is a reason why a person should resist the urge or rather control it and if there is a need, you should proceed towards the washrooms immediately and the thing is

00:33:03--> 00:33:12

that from other hobbies, what do we learn that if a person has eaten raw garlic or onion, then he should not even go close to the mustard.

00:33:13--> 00:33:30

Why? Because that smell, it bothers people it bothers the angels and this is a what food that a person is eating coming from where his mouth so how do you think it is okay? that a person is passing wind and that smell is tolerated by the angels or by the people.

00:33:31--> 00:34:13

So a person must be careful about this matter as well that in the masjid, he should not take this matter lightly. And remember that it is permissible. However, it's not something that you can say is recommended. So a person must be careful. You have definitely chose the benefit of staying in Voodoo for as long as a person can write especially after Salah that if there are certain foods that upset a person's stomach causing him you know too much gas or something and you should avoid that especially when they're going to the masjid right because this will disturb him and disturb people who are around him and especially the angels and remember that it is obligated to keep the mustard

00:34:13--> 00:34:20

free of offensive smells right. So anything that negates that should be avoided.

00:34:21--> 00:34:25

Bab banana mustard, the building of the mustard,

00:34:26--> 00:34:55

which must must be done liberally meaning how it was built, how that was constructed with what materials it was made, and must be being an example. For people. This means that when people are building their massage, they should build it in a similar way. Similar way I don't mean similar layout, similar materials, but the basic concept. Okay, inshallah we will learn about that.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

We'll call it a booster Eden and I will sorry, meeting 100 of you

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

I knew he said Ghana it was successful must add the roof of the masjid which must must reasonably

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

it was men from jury the

00:35:12--> 00:35:20

jury branches of what another day pumps. So the roof of the masjid was made from what?

00:35:21--> 00:36:02

date palm branches. We read the word to read earlier as well, the Hadees when the profits or loss and passed by the two graves in which people were being punished, twigs being broken pieces of the palm branches, okay, and he put those are the grades. So Jared, so the roof was made from God the nakliye what Amala and he commanded who Romero Romero de la hora, and who Divina in Masjid with the construction of the masjid meaning he reordered its construction. So in other words, he ordered its renovation, it had to be rebuilt with honor and he said Akin men, NASA men and matauri

00:36:03--> 00:36:52

Akin shelter who are NASA the people from what Minamata from the rain, Akina? This is from the same root as the word Canon or a Canon Akin, they say that our hearts would you are not allowed to become a kin than any of the who what is a Kindle covering? Okay, something that covers in wraps. So what is inside is sheltered. Okay, what is inside is protected. So he said, a kinlan NASA mineral matauri shelter the people from the rain. What does this mean? This means that make the masjid with such materials that when people are inside, they're sheltered from the rain. Not that they are being drenched. Okay in the rain. Rather they should be comfortable in the masjid because they're there to

00:36:52--> 00:37:38

worship Allah subhana wa yakka and beware meaning I warn you and to hum mirror out to saphira that you color it red, or that you color it yellow. Why? For a deaf dinner nurse because then you would put the people in because these colors would be a trial for the people how they will distract them. Now basically we see that at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the masjid It was built from God then at the time of Ramadan, Buddha, the masjid was reconstructing and he gave certain instructions. What instructions did he get primarily to first of all Akin the NASA Minamata shelter the people from the rain, put a solid roof on put a roof First of all, put a ceiling and that

00:37:38--> 00:37:45

ceiling should be such that it should protect the people from the rain, what does it show that the masjid should be made comfortable?

00:37:46--> 00:37:54

Why so that the people can perform Salah easily already and comfort? How would you describe it?

00:37:56--> 00:38:09

How would you describe it? What is comfort? Basically, if you think about it, comfort, it depends on the place on the climate and on what the people are accustomed to. Isn't it? So,

00:38:10--> 00:38:38

like for example, in this country, comfort means that you have eating comfort means that you have carpeted floors. Comfort means that you have enough light because if these things are missing, then how can people pray? They cannot be expected to pray easily. In a place where there's no heating and winter there is no carpet on the cold freezing floors okay and there is no electricity because this is what the people are accustomed to.

00:38:40--> 00:39:24

So piety would not be that the masjid is bare, there are no lights, there is no air conditioning or heating, no, this is not bitey them all right, you have to see what is comfortable for the people because inshallah we will learn or expand a little on who when he had the most of the reconstructed, he expanded it and he also decorated it a little bit. Why? Because that was what people were accustomed to by that time. But in other places we see having a carpeted floor or having heating and air conditioning, this is not a necessity in many places, but in certain places, it is a necessity. So it really depends on where the masjid is, who comes there to worship? And what are the needs of

00:39:24--> 00:39:59

people. But the main lesson is that the masjid should be made comfortable for people according to whatever they're accustomed to. Secondly, the second instruction that he gave was that do not color it red or yellow. What, whether it's the ceiling or the walls or whatever it is why because it will be a trial for people as they will be distracted from prayer. So what does this teach us what principle does is give us that whatever is in the masjid, whether it's the paint or it is the floors, or is the decoration or whatever it is, it should not be

00:40:00--> 00:40:44

distracting, it should not be distracting, it should be as neutral as possible. Because sometimes people say what a boring carpet, boring walls, it should be nice and bright, and there should be a pattern is we like these things, but inshallah we have to focus on solid. So the more neutral it is, the better it is. Red Carpet is very common, especially with the yellow patterns. And if you remember I mentioned to you earlier that it depends on what people are accustomed to. Again, when it comes to colors, colors are, you know, very normal in the sense that everything is so colorful. So when people are used to seeing these colors everywhere all the time, then it doesn't distract them

00:40:44--> 00:41:03

much in prayer. Okay, but some people do get distracted. So they have to control themselves, right, or they have to change their environment. So these are the two principles that we learn comfort and avoiding extravagance when it comes to decorating the masjid. Can you apply this in your house?

00:41:05--> 00:41:47

as well? Is this applicable in the house? Yes, definitely. Because sometimes we think making the house comfortable is extravagance, Islam. No, it's not Islam, as long as it is making your life comfortable so that you can function well, you can work well, because people are very used to being comfortable when it comes to the temperature. Okay? If it's too hot, people get very irritable. If it's too cold, again, they're irritable. So it affects the behavior of a person as well. So you want to make the masjid as comfortable as possible. Okay, you will notice that if a machine is overcrowded, or if it's too hot, or if it's too smelly, then what happens every little thing bothers

00:41:47--> 00:41:47

you over there,

00:41:49--> 00:42:11

doesn't it? And if it's calm and quiet and peaceful, and the temperature is also really good, then you're also at peace. So it affects a person, what color and so on and so below or I know he said yet about how are we avoid these colors. Why? Because then people will boast about them.

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

They will boast to each other

00:42:15--> 00:42:52

over what the colors that each must, or the people of each mustard will say our mustard is more beautiful than yours. Because it's more colorful. We have more fashions we have more designs. So their focus will become what competition in beautifying the masjid in adorning the masjid summer, then lay your Muna in kalila, they will not inhabited except a few. Meaning then the main focus of the people will be on adorning the massage, and not praying that

00:42:54--> 00:43:31

people will just boast about the fact that this must be so beautiful, and this must be so up to date, and they won't bother to pray. So the focus should be what Salah, and Reba. And when it comes to decorating the masjid, that's of secondary importance. But sometimes what happens that we get so caught up in the material things, okay, that we forget the main purpose. For example, if there is a software that has to be designed, alright. And people pay a lot of attention to the colors and the layout, and the font size, and what should be put and what should be avoided.

00:43:32--> 00:43:46

And they spend hours on this, getting feedback, researching. And then finally they have something very beautiful up on a software. Okay, they've spent hours on it, they've spent too much time on it. But what is written?

00:43:47--> 00:43:49

Are you even applying it in your own life?

00:43:50--> 00:44:14

Are you even following it yourself? Like, for example, if we're spending, let's say, 20 hours, trying to make a beautiful flyer with a Hadith of the hijab, for example, a hadith about the importance of the ledger, we've spent so much time making it and we give it to people. But at the end of the day, if we're not implementing it ourselves, then what's the point of that?

00:44:15--> 00:44:34

What's the point? So this happens when we get overly concerned about the looks. Then we forget the action. We forget self improvement, all our focus is directed to what beautifying the apparent, and we ignore the main thing.

00:44:35--> 00:44:49

It may be very beautiful, but the content itself is meaningless. It's irrelevant, or it doesn't make much sense. Or even if it makes more sense, that's not your priority, because your priority is to make that flyer that poster, that soft board very, very beautiful.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

And you think that once you've made it very beautiful, you've done your job, so then you don't have to act on it. So this is exactly what happens with massage.

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

There are masajid which are beautiful, beautiful, you know, maintained so well. So clean, so perfect. But there aren't many people who praise Allah in there.

00:45:14--> 00:45:33

Because the people who've made that mustard they think they have fulfilled their purpose by building that Masjid. And by keeping it clean, and by hiring somebody who will yell at people, if they walk in with us. This is what they think that their mission is complete. Whereas what's the mission, that people should come and worship Allah in the mosque?

00:45:35--> 00:45:47

That if the money is taken from the community donations are accepted, and they're spent only on beautifying the masjid, and not on benefiting the people, educating the people, then what uses that beautiful Masjid

00:45:48--> 00:46:18

because no matter how beautiful it is, eventually, it will be finished. What will go with the people are their deeds that must get his place of such and such that is what putting your head on the ground. That should be the main purpose not just beautifying the masjid and making it perfectly clean. I mean, that's necessary, but that should not be the goal. I was going to study that he visited a mustard somewhere in North America. And he said, beautiful mustard.

00:46:19--> 00:46:35

It looks like a museum literally when you're walking, and so well maintained. But as soon as you walk in, and you think that shoes are allowed, because it's a courtyard, and as you would enter, then you would have shelves where you would leave your shoes.

00:46:36--> 00:47:12

If you walk in with your shoes, immediately somebody will come yelling at you humiliating you humiliating. And it doesn't matter whether you are there to teach a class because he saw this happening to people who were there to teach a class. It doesn't matter who you are, you'll be yelled at humiliated in public. Why? Because you're wearing shoes, where you're not supposed to, but there's no clear sign either. And how many people go to that muster to pray hardly any who comes to the masjid visitors who just want to see how beautiful that structure is? What a beautiful piece of architecture it is.

00:47:13--> 00:47:58

So it defeats the purpose of the question right? So and so they know I know you said yet about how whenever we have if you focus becomes red and yellow color, then people will just boast about the mustard. So Malaya Marina in kala, kala, Avastin and even our vessel the lower end who said, let us luckily for Napa, surely you will definitely decorate them aside from the words of gum as a hospital, you who do want to follow just like the Jews and the Christians. They decorated their places of worship, meaning you will also follow their footsteps. So even our best understood this as one overly decorating a Messiah is what following the footsteps of your hood and Masada? Because

00:47:58--> 00:48:30

that's what they did. And if you see there will be churches that are huge, that have sculptures and paintings huge and very beautiful. But how many people actually go there to worship except for Sunday? You will see their worship places empty all week long. Isn't that so? So just like that our massages have become all week long. They're empty. Fridays are busy. And that's it. And all the emphasis is on what decorating the masjid if some funds come in, renew this, replace this update this.

00:48:31--> 00:48:33

But any classes for the community

00:48:34--> 00:48:38

any beneficial knowledge with the community? Not that much.

00:48:39--> 00:49:17

Had this an early human Abdullah are at the center Yakubu Ibrahim of the Saudi Arabia Ansari have Nikkei Santa Clara de nafion and Abdullah Obara who, Abdullah, even remotely learn who he informed after that, and I must say that that indeed the masjid which must have the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Cana, it was Allah it Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam It was melbournian it was built with beloved with bricks, not milk. That's love and this is loving and this is basically mud bricks. melbournian is from that

00:49:19--> 00:49:29

lab in Lebanon. Okay bricks. So these are basically mud bricks which are not burnt so basically they're not waterproof they're not that strong.

00:49:30--> 00:49:36

What's up boo and it's ceiling was made off dirtied. What is underneath

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

branches from they

00:49:40--> 00:49:42

were the who and its pillars were Harsha

00:49:43--> 00:49:48

were trunks the wood off dead farms meaning the trunks off the pumps.

00:49:49--> 00:49:56

Follow me as it fee Abu Bakr and shaker so bocadillo I knew he did not add anything to the masjid.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Meaning after the death of the Prophet sallallahu said

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

When aboubaker was a hurry for those two years, nothing was added to the machine. It remained, as it was.

00:50:07--> 00:50:13

Was that a fee here or model, but remodeled later on when he became the halifa? He added to it.

00:50:14--> 00:50:38

Well, Vanessa, who and he built it, I love when he and he on its original construction. What does this mean? That Romana below or in hoonah he said, he increased in it meaning its size. So he expanded the masjid. But when he built it, he built it on a similar pattern like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did, how that the materials were the same.

00:50:40--> 00:51:18

The materials were the same banana over here doesn't mean foundations, it means similar pattern of construction, because bananas ultimate stuff, right construction. So, he built it in a similar way that the prophet SAW a lot of them had built. So Banana Banana, if you are so delighted to somehow be living with mud bricks while juried and the palm branches, what are the Buddha who has urban and he also placed the palm trunks as pillars. So the same pattern, the only difference was, it was rebuilt newer materials, same materials but newer and just larger inside

00:51:19--> 00:51:38

some of the euro Horace Mann, butters man Latino or new he changed it, how frazetta fee so he added to it Ziad and kathira. Lot, meaning he enlarged it a great deal. He expanded the mustard a great deal. Why?

00:51:39--> 00:52:04

Because obviously so many people had become Muslim and so many people have come to Medina. And remember mustard was not just a place of Salah. It was a place where meetings were held. So many important things were done in the masjid. So this is why he expanded the masjid a great deal webinar and he built Dara who its walls been hijacked with rocks, what kind of rocks were they? Ullman kosha they were engraved

00:52:06--> 00:52:53

while also and the rocks were joined together with what plaster so imagine the walls that were previously built with mud bricks that were not even burned. That were such that if there was too much water that fell on them like for example too much rain, the wall would easily collapse. Now he had walls built of stone and he joined the stones with plaster with Gianna Udo and those stones By the way, they were engraved, why so much you could also look nice with john aroma the who. And he made it spillers minha gelatin non-kosher, instead of date palm trunks, he had the made with stones again. And these stones were also engraved with soccer for who. And the ceiling of the masjid was

00:52:53--> 00:52:59

made with the saggy with sad, sad, teak. So it's a kind of wood.

00:53:00--> 00:53:18

It has an orange color. Right? Many people they really like teak furniture. So anyway, it's a good quality basically. And I don't know about how durable it is. But I've seen that people will have teak furniture, they've had it for generations, right for a very long period of time.

00:53:19--> 00:53:36

So anyway, soccer for who this edge. What do we learn over here that will work out a little or no, he didn't change the machine at all. He left it as it was he didn't expand it. He didn't rebuild it nothing. There are different reasons behind that. First of all, he was really only for two years. So perhaps there was no need.

00:53:37--> 00:53:52

And secondly, rebuilding the masjid was not his priority. Why? There were so many other important things going on there were wars being fought. So all of his energy basically was directed towards that.

00:53:54--> 00:54:33

Then what I'll do though, and what did he do? He rebuilt the masjid in its original way. Why did he rebuild it? Because there was a need it had to be expanded. And besides over time, you know that structure must have deteriorated so this is the reason why he had it built again. Not responsibly though and who he changed the mustard a lot how first of all dad a fee. Increased size a great deal. Secondly, he had the walls made with stone. Okay, engraved. Thirdly, pillars were made with stone as well which were engraved and plastered. And thirdly, the ceiling was made with solid wood. Why do you think so?

00:54:35--> 00:54:40

Why do you think he changed the materials? He use different materials? What was the reason?

00:54:41--> 00:54:56

Because they're more durable rock and solid wood. plastic. They're more durable compared to mud. And they found trunks and the palm branches. So they're more durable. What do you think another reason

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

that we see that by this time

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

Seems overall had become very wealthy

00:55:03--> 00:55:32

before, they didn't even have enough oil to drink or to use as a lamp. But now, Allah subhanaw taala had blessed the Muslims with much wealth, and that is what the average people have become accustomed to. So it doesn't make sense that people's houses are very lavish. But when they come to the masjid, they feel uncomfortable there. Why? Because it's not as good as their house.

00:55:33--> 00:55:41

Tell me something. If you're living in this part of the world, you're used to certain kinds of walls and floors.

00:55:42--> 00:55:50

And you go to a different part of the world. Where walls are different floors are different. Lighting is different. How do you feel

00:55:51--> 00:56:00

out of place? Right? And even though you tell yourself, it's okay, I have to be humble. But tell me, isn't it uncomfortable for you?

00:56:01--> 00:56:10

Not because you are very picky. But just because you are used to a different lifestyle. That's it. That's the only difference.

00:56:11--> 00:56:51

It's not that you look down on those people. No, it's just that you have a different lifestyle now, and it takes a long time to adjust to that. So just like that, if the whole city has changed, okay, people's houses have changed, the mustard also needs to be updated, according to the customs of that time. You know, that's what they're comfortable with. And this is what you're comfortable with. It happens that when people come from there to here, they find it very odd that what kind of washrooms you have, that you can throw water on the floor? How can you clean the washroom without washing the floor? Right, they cannot understand it. And just like that, they find it very weird that the walls

00:56:51--> 00:57:15

are made of wood. So it just depends on what a person is used to. So this is a reason why are men who are new he updated domestic not because this was Islamic, or it was because they were too attached to the dounia it was just because that was the need of the time. One question, why did he have the stones engraved

00:57:16--> 00:57:18

beauty and why?

00:57:19--> 00:57:49

That was a customer of that time again. That was what people have become used to. However, remember that our spinal bluedot aren't who was of the whole affair of our Sheedy, he was on the rightly guided Hola, so we cannot assume that what he did was wrong. That what he did was Wonka, because this is something he did as a halifa. Okay, so as a halifa, when he had the masjid built, and he built it in this way, he had a little bit of, you know, beauty adornment.

00:57:50--> 00:58:04

But remember that this was not a distraction for the people. Why? Because those stones were engraved, it was not red and yellow and pink and orange color, it was not golden color, it was not silver color, it was just rocks were engraved is the difference.

00:58:06--> 00:58:27

And likewise, these rocks were where basically the walls were built from the stones and the pillars, so it wasn't in front of the people all the time. So, this is a reason why it was not a distraction for the people. Even if it was beautiful, it was not a distraction for the people it was out of fitna for the people. But this is a reason why it was okay.

00:58:28--> 00:59:11

That whenever we feel that something needs to be updated in the masjid, whether it is the carpet or it is the lights or it is the faint then we should notice these things. First of all, I just like in your house, you know immediately when the floor needs to be replaced, right? When the walls need to be repainted when certain piece of furniture has to be replaced, right? We know we recognize it and we save money or we do something to improve that. So just like that the mustard is also our house. It's the house of a lion in fact. So even a Masjid needs upgrading. Okay, I must say it also needs upgrading, and when it will be upgraded, it will be updated, then what should we do? We should also

00:59:11--> 00:59:19

put in our sharing, whether it's the chairs or benches or carpet or dividers, then it's a need

00:59:20--> 00:59:59

and these things are not, you know, cheap, they are quite costly. And the thing is that because mustard is a place which is heavily used. This is why there is a need to constantly, you know, replace them that because it's a place where people worship and the angels also they made to offer the worshipers. Smell is something that bothers people and also bothers the angels that the carpet is smelling then it shows that it needs to be replaced and shine. Right and this is something that Mashallah some of the people they recognized and they themselves came forward and they pitched in their sharing. Right inshallah you will see very soon so be

01:00:00--> 01:00:02

Those who are taking, you know, initiative

01:00:03--> 01:00:07

in shop. And it doesn't mean that you have to spend 1000s of dollars.

01:00:08--> 01:00:49

You don't have to spend 1000s of dollars, whatever that you can remember from the driveway outside had to be rebuilt, people were informed and proud of the people put in their share when the fence that we put up in the month of Ramadan, just one announcement was made, and we had more than necessary and with the surplus, more additions were added to the masjid to make the mustard more comfortable for the people. Right. So remember that if we put any of our share in this, this is going to benefit us in return. And any person who worships or loss of penalty, when they will worship easily inshallah, we will also have a share of it, that if we see that the carpets are

01:00:49--> 01:01:06

getting dirty, or the water getting dirty, that's actually a good sign, because that means that the machine is actually being used. It's heavily populated, because there may be massages, which are very beautiful. And the carpets have not been changed for years. It's perhaps because they're not used as often.

01:01:07--> 01:01:28

So even that we don't see the capacity ourselves to do something alone. We can encourage other people, we can do something with our own hands to earn even a little bit of money to contribute to it to start it inshallah others will follow too. And remember the eye of the Quran that there is no good in many other najwa except for man, Amara is sort of

01:01:29--> 01:02:04

a MacGuffin of Islam. Right. So this is something that we should talk about in our private conversations, encouraging one another to participate in these ways. And recently, I heard a story in one of the directors of this woman who was very poor, and she had lots of children. So every day, she would have to make bread for them. And for each child who would make one bread to party, right? So what you would do is that as you would make the the balls, right, she would take out a little bit from each,

01:02:05--> 01:02:06

just a little bit from each.

01:02:07--> 01:02:15

And out of those eight or 10 balls that she had made, if she would take a little bit she was able to make an extra

01:02:16--> 01:02:35

y so that she could get something from everyone that okay, if I have just enough dough to make back for my children, I cannot afford more for others. Let me just take a little bit from each child's share. So what if he has one more or less? So what if he has two bites less? What's the big deal?

01:02:36--> 01:02:42

But with that, we can make an extra piece of bread and give it to somebody else?

01:02:44--> 01:02:57

Yes, so the phone we have everybody. So we don't need to really empty out our bank accounts. Because this is what we think we have to do from your lunch money even

01:02:58--> 01:03:02

if you control yourself and don't buy yourself pizza one day

01:03:03--> 01:03:05

okay, don't buy yourself one samosa.

01:03:06--> 01:03:20

Do you want to buy two samosa just take one samosa save that money put it away gradually gradually, gradually inshallah you have something to contribute with that whoever guides people to that which is good. Then he says though, he has done it,

01:03:21--> 01:03:39

that the data has been compared to the believer. And we see over here that how every part of the day farm is used to build the machine, from the trunk to the branches, right, and the fruit is eaten. So every part of it is useful and just like that the believer is also beneficial. Everywhere that he goes

01:03:40--> 01:03:45

subhanak alone will be handed Michel de la Ilaha. illa Anta Mr. hirokawa to be like Santa Monica.
