Hello everyone a salir de soleil Karim, I'm a verifier with a biller him in a SharePoint regime Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim, rubbish rattly slitherio A acidity Emery, better melissani of Coco de probenecid nerima.
bat a Darwin aefi Bina MSgt a Darwin cooperation from well known an onus to help the economic Buddha yakka necessary and Winterfell What does it mean? helping one another meaning cooperating with each other, assisting one another, in doing what Phoebe net in a Masjid, in building Masjid, in the construction of the massage in building them, helping one another? Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala says with our window, Allah Albury, what taqwa cooperate with each other in the works of righteousness. So building a machine is a work of righteousness. So this is why everyone should participate in this. It's not just the work of one or two individuals rather everyone should have
their share in this
and the statement of Allah subhanaw taala Americana and mushy kina Yamato massage de la He it is not for the machine for the idolaters to frequent Allah subhanaw taala is mosques, yar Moodle. What does it mean to populate? But the way they are Moodle has been interpreted in two ways. by many prefer serene one is to build the masjid and secondly, to populate it, because a mustard can only be populated when it has been built and constructed. And what does it mean by populating the masjid that people are coming in? They're worshipping a las panatela they are remembering him works of fire or going on at the masjid. So what is mentioned over here in totoaba, the verse that is mentioned
here, that it does not affect the machine that they should populate the masajid Why does he remember how he mentioned this AI over here? What's the relevance of this with Darwin, Fibonacci and mustard? What's the relationship
that building a machine is a very righteous act right and cooperating in building the machine having your share no matter how big or small it may be is a very virtuous act. However, for this great deed what is necessary first and foremost, though, hate what is necessary first and foremost is Laos because shake and remodel master don't go hand in hand. They don't go together. So just like that if a person is building massages one after the other, he's busy in in massage active. But if it's not done for the sake of a loss of personal data, if it's not done with a class the net effort is meaningless. It is useless I
had this when I was certain Carla had the Center of Disease of new mokdad in Colorado Santa haledon and has under crema de Cali ignore bus or crema. He said that Allah Lee if not our best and even our best who who aren't who said to me? Well Ebony he and to his son which son of his or the yen, so even our bus after a crema and he also said to who his son Ali Noriko was a student of even our bus get so he's studying a student and his son What Impala called both of you go either obese or even do a boussard first Ma and both of you listen minha DC from his hobbies meaning go to him and listen to her these from him. Listen to what he has to tell you about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
from talaq now said we went for either. So then who are he was who I was sorry that he was he had a plane in a garden and how is a walled garden. So it means that it was his piece of land. So he went to Abu Saeed while he was in his high school to use liquor who he was fixing it, meaning he was working in his garden, for other so he took who I will sorry, Rita, who is Shaw for whatever. And then he wrapped up somebody then meaning he took his shawl and wrapped it up, around himself. So he chose it while he was working, the child must have fallen, but he got up and he wrapped himself up in his shell, some unsure, then he began you had this you know narrating to us had that until after
he came to the crew. The mention of beaner illustrate the construction of the masjid, which must the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he started mentioning to us different things until he got to the incident of the building of the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for Karla so he said describing that incident that could now we were in the middle we were carrying Lebanon, Lebanon, one brick one brick, meaning each one of us would carry one brick at a time, while I'm out on an vinyasa. Load
Taney Lavina Taney he was carrying two bricks at a time. So all the companions they were carrying one brick at a time but are ma vinyasa carrying two bricks at a time for who? So he saw him who an abuse of the law who early he was alone, the Prophet salallahu Islam saw him doing this, okay in two weeks at a time, fine photo, so he began brushing off.
He began brushing off what a taraba the dust and who from him, were kulu and he was saying the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was saying, way hammering that may Allah have mercy on our mouth, Dr. Lu, who he will kill him who will say to a group, which group al belia rebellious, may Allah have mercy on Ahmad a rebellious group is going to kill him. He had room in Elgin, he will call them to Jenna were their own who in a know and they will be calling him to the fire. Allah. He said that your cooler amaron amount of the long run when he heard that he said earlier we let him in and fit and I seek protection with Allah from fifth and from tribulation. There are many lessons in this Hadees.
But the main reason why man Buhari mentioned his Hadees is to show that all the companions were participating in the building of the masjid how in whatever capacity that they could, majority of the people. In fact, everybody except our model, the lower I know they were carrying one brick at a time and our mall carrying two. So this shows to us, that building of the masjid is not just the duty of one or two people. Rather, everyone should have their share in this. Likewise, if there is a particular project in the masjid, like, for instance, replacing the carpets or painting the building again, then it's not just the job of one or two people to sponsor the entire project. Rather,
everyone can have their share in it. But other lessons that we learn over here is that first of all, see even our birth doubled over I know He is studying his student and his son, both of them to go to a companion, a busara. Audrey, and learn from him. What does it show? There was many things. First of all, it shows the humility of even Arbus that he realized that he didn't possess all knowledge that there were other people who had spent more time with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam compared to himself, who had been with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam before he joined him. Okay, because even Arbus was one of those people who migrated from Makkah later, okay, remember the most other thing in
the Quran that I mentioned even or better that I was one of them. So he migrated to Makkah much later. So anyway, not much later, but after some of the companions, so I was there it was there before him. So he knew that there was something I will say he knows that I don't know. And I don't want my son and my student to be deprived of it. So he is the one sending his students and his son, to others to learn from them. Because no one person can possess complete knowledge, even about one particular field of knowledge. For instance, a person could be an expert in let's say, Arabic grammar. But do they possess all that knowledge? No, they don't. They will always be other people
who are better who know more about that field. So it is necessary that we keep this humility in ourselves and learn from different people. And it also shows the open mindedness of even our best of luck, right. And also, we see over here, that when the two came to eviscerate, he was working in his garden.
And when he saw both of them come in, what did he do? He left his work, and picked up his shawl, wrapped it up and sat down and started teaching. What is this show to us?
First of all, see that I will say being a companion of the prophets of Allah, listen, what is he doing working in his garden? Why to maintain his livelihood. So the Sahaba they were very knowledgeable people, devout worshippers, but at the same time to look after their needs as well. Because sometimes we might feel that, oh, if I have to work if I have to clean the house, if I have to do the dishes, this doesn't affect me know, this is something that is a need of yours. And you have to look after these things. Right? No matter what level of knowledge you may have, or no matter what you are outside the house. When it comes to your needs, you have to look after yourself. Also,
we see here that he preferred the need of those who came to him over his own need, that he stopped what he was doing, left it and immediately began teaching them. And what did it teach them about the building of the masjid many things he taught them and often was also the building of the masjid and a model below and who he said that he was carrying, do bricks. First of all, the fact that everyone was participating in whatever capacity that they could. Whoever had the strength to carry one brick. They did that and our model below I knew he had the strength to carry two bricks. So he did that. It is said
That he was carrying two bricks, one for himself and one for the profit total not
that because of profits or losses and it was also building the mustard with the people, right. So as though every time the Prophet said a lot of son would pick up a brick Ahmad would take it from him and take two.
Why out of respect for the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah. So he was carrying two bricks, and it shows how much the he was someone who possessed a lot of strength. And even if he didn't, we see that he was exerting a lot of effort over here carrying two bricks at a time. Imagine they're strong, man, those bricks must be heavy, huge. This is why they were carrying only one each but Armand is carrying too, because sometimes it happens that you have to put in a lot of effort in doing something that you may be physically exhausted, you may feel that you're doing more than your capacity. But it's okay. Sometimes we like to stay in the comfort zone. But sometimes you have to go
a step forward, if you want more.
So this is what our model did or who was doing. And look at the zeal and the passion that he had. Going to bricks at a time, exactly the more passion you have, the more work you do, the more reward you get. Every time a person picked up one levina Amar picked up two. So he he doubled the work, double the effort, and double the reward, and perhaps double the effort and the pain and the difficulty, but he he took it why because the more you want to work, the more reward you will get inshallah. And it was the master of the prophets of Allah sin, which is still there today. Every day, so many people performs on our their worship alone over there. And he put into breaks at a time
the reward is preserved. And if he's going to the work is done faster. So he's making the work easier for others as well. The time that he's spending over there is the same as the time that other people are spending over there. But he's making more of that time, power by exerting more effort. You know, many people go to work. Many people go to a class. And they spend equal amount of time over there, three hours, four hours, five hours, six hours, eight hours. But some people get the work of one day done, and other people get the work off to the instance. And some people more in some people less depending on what how much effort a person has put in how much time has been used
productively, because sometimes we spend hours and at the end, if we check, what have we done, what have we accomplished? It's worth nothing. So take your time very seriously, because your time is what an investment check. How much effort Am I putting in? And what are the results? What am I producing at the end of the day? If I'm not producing anything, where's my time going? Where are my efforts going? Then we also see over here the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for that as he saw him, you know, he started brushing off the dust from him. And how he started saying that, may Allah have mercy on our mob, a rebellious group is going to kill him. He will be calling them to
Jenna and they will be calling him to the fire. And it so happened that after the death of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam soon, there was a lot of fitna and in that fitna was also a battle. And in one of those battles, he was killed or mob and yes, it'll blow or no he was killed. And notice over here he sought refuge with Allah from fitten.
Even though the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that he will be calling people to join, so it shows that he will come out of that fitna successful inshallah, even though he's killed at the end, insha Allah is successful at the end, but still he's seeking refuge with Allah from what fit and so, the same way, we should also always be seeking a las pantallas protection from fit.
Because as time goes by with an only increase trials and tribulation only increase and we see people around us, people close to us, sometimes distant from us, but people are in so much tribulation. And if Allah subhanaw taala has protected us, let us not, you know, take this for granted. Be grateful for safety for well being and seek a loss of panels artist protection from tribulation.
Bob Ellis Tiana Tina Gertie was soneri feet are wet in memory, while Miss Judy is Tiana seeking help meaning making use of who the Naja carpenters was sooner and Craftsman so now is from is the plural of signer from Sonora. It's basically you know, different kinds of workmanship, different kinds of work that people do, you can say different kinds of construction things, okay. Construction related matters. So now job specific carpenter and so now, every other kind of Craftsman
and in modern terms, you can
Include plumbers and electricians and all such people in some manner. So, taking the help of these people, in what fee are where the memory wall must add in constructing the member and the masjid or word, constructing the member and the masjid.
So, is it permissible to hire people for this work? Is it? Yes. Why? Because they are skilled workers. Alright. And when skilled people will build the masjid and obviously, it will be better.
And now the question is, what if they're not Muslim? Even then,
even then, because basically you are paying them for some work, okay, because they are more skilled. They are trained in that they're able to do it. So why not take benefit from them?
For example, in a Masjid,
if a carpet has to be installed, and installers are all non Muslims, you will say no, sorry, a group of our youth will install the carpets themselves. And if they do it, Allah save the carpet, and mustard, you understand? So it doesn't matter if a person is Muslim or not, when they have the skill, and the ability and you can take their help, you can hire them for this purpose.
The prophets are lawless, and we even had non Muslims teach Muslim children, different things writing, okay, why because they had that skill. So take advantage. And this is why we see that even today, when it comes to certain, you know, architectural works or engineering work that has to be done even within the huddle. non Muslims are hired. And recently I was watching a video of
this particular project of a train or something in Makkah, all the way to Minar. And in that a lot of foreigners have been hired. And amongst the many Chinese people, many of them are already Muslim, but some of them are also non Muslim. So one of the shields he happened to be there he was passing by. So he started asking people are you Muslim? Are you Muslim, and one man, he said he was not a Muslim. So he asked them, Do you know about Islam? He said, Yes, a little bit since I've come here. I've seen many things, said what do you think about it? And it's good. They said, Why didn't you become Muslim? I'll become you know, maybe sometime. He said, No, no, become Muslim right now. He
said, Okay, fine. So he embraced Islam immediately, immediately. So both benefits, right, you benefit from their skills, and they also benefit from, you know, their exposure to Islam and Muslims. So, the help of such skilled people may be taken in the construction of the masjid
had that an aqua Davido Carla doesn't have the disease and he has him on silent Allah Bharata Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam Ala Moana attain the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent a message okay. bartha meaning he sent for he sent a message to a woman and that moody you order hula Maki your slave, which slave and ajar who is a carpenter that yarraman Lee that he should make for me are wooden, a wooden structure, actually so are they when I would sit on them are what is basically wooden structure. So he asked the woman that she should tell her Carpenter gig wasn't her slave also, that he should make a wooden structure like a member so that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
could sit on it when he would be at the masjid
had done a holiday and Paula had gotten out of the way the new Ayman Abbey here and Javid Anima attended a woman called she said Yasuda law or messenger of Allah. Allah should not add your Aloo ima laka for you Shay and something that you do a lady that you would sit on it for entirely. For indeed for me, meaning I have a lamb and a slave that isn't a job that is a carpenter. Allah He said, If you wish for our military member, so she had the member made. So in one version we see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam master in another version, we see that she as the prophets Allah sent him in either case, we see that permission was taken from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to build that
member. And the member was made, meaning in a jar a carpenter, was asked to make that member. And also we see over here that this was a woman who came forward with that offer. So a woman can also contribute in the making of a Masjid, she can also contribute in the furnishing of the mustard. Because women many times they observe things that men don't. They notice things that men don't mean there were so many companions over there, but they didn't perhaps see the need or they didn't come forward to fulfill the need of the prophets all of a sudden, that he needs to sit as well. But she observed and she immediately suggested, and she had one made, she came she saw something was
missing. She suggested it, the prophets Allah was approved of it and he assigned her
And this also shows us a very important thing that whoever comes forward with a request, then they're the ones who are granted the opportunity. Because sometimes we say that how can we were not told? Because you didn't come forward with it. People who come forward with it many times, they're the ones who are assigned to it because they're the ones who are passionate about it.
By mandana, musty than the one who builds a Masjid meaning what is his reward? What will he get if he built a mosque you
had the center you have muscle a man had destiny have never been a hobo Rania moron amarone and the bouquet Ron Hadassah, who are now some of naramata iF nipah data had that Oh, and no semirara obey the law Hola, Ania and no semirara Rosemont of nerf Erna yaku he was saying who are in our fan who are and who the third halifa he was saying in the near Golan nursey the talking of the people being when the people were talking fee concerning him Hey know when Ben msgid Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he constructed the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam so basically are assignable though I know when he had the masjid reconstructed. Remember we learned the Hadees
earlier that he added expanded, he had the mud walls replaced by walls of stone, okay, that were also stones which were engraved, blaster together pillars, instead of wood, they were now made of stone. Likewise, the ceiling was also changed from branches to proper solid wood. So the people, they spoke a lot about this. Like it is the habit of people that they are never satisfied with what is done.
So they spoke a lot. So it's mine, Alberto. I knew at that time he said that in nicomachea often, indeed, you have done much meaning You've done enough talking, you've talked enough, you've spoken enough. You've spoken a lot. What in me and indeed I submitted to nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on your call. I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that men banana student, whoever built a mustard color bouquet, the narrative because he said he said Do I also think that I know all that he said, Yeah, but really be he was hella he seeks by if the face of Allah meaning he builds the masjid. Why? to please Allah subhana wa Tada. So whoever does this, then burn Allahu
Allah, who then Allah will build for him. mithila who just like it filled in Indian.
Whoever builds a Masjid. Why, in order to make a law happy, then what will happen? A law who will make a house for him just like that, in the service mind who aren't who he didn't want a small house in Ghana. He wanted a big house. So this is why he had the masjid expanded a great deal. Just like that he didn't want to play in house in general. He wanted a house that looked nice. So this is why he had the rocks the stones engraved. And he had the ceiling made property as well. Why? Because he wanted a good house. And and so we learn from this that the reward that Allah subhanaw taala gives to people is just like the action. Okay, I'll just mention Salama that the recompense the reward is
just like the action. right because in our centum are centrally unfussy from hell does our son election so whatever a person gets, does that is what he receives. Now, in this head is particularly who has mentioned the one who builds the masjid mean the one who orders it, the one who sponsors it. And some people Mashallah last Palatine has given them so much that they can actually afford to do this. But we see that the majority of the people, they're not at this level, but they cannot have an entire Masjid made themselves.
But doesn't mean that they cannot get any reward. They cannot have any share in this, you know, with regards to the making of an arrow. Okay, the making of an arrow. There's a Hades on my forehead is reported by emphysema and how can that three people get Jana because of one arrow, who, the one who makes it, when he makes it, hoping for Allah subhanaw taala his reward. Secondly, the one who throws it, the one who shoots it, when he shoots it, seeking a loss of reward. And thirdly, the one who passes on that arrow. Like once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was passing the arrows to one of the companions that shoot right at the Bat level ahead.
So three people get to Jenna because of one arrow.
Who, the one who makes it, the one who shoots it
The one who passes.
So just like that, I must say, one person cannot build it entirely himself. But whatever share he or she can put in it, if he or she seeks Allah subhanaw taala is reward through it in sha Allah. Allah subhanaw taala is very generous to him.
So think about it. What can you do?
What can you do?
No matter how much effort is put in, as long as it's there, class sign is there. A loss of peloton is I should call
that Yehuda he should take Urbino slowly naturally. He should hold be no soul in a bleed and nibble his arrows okay and no soul heads. The head part the pointy part. So a person he should hold the arrow by its head when either Monroeville Masjid when he passes through a muster.
Why hold with the head because it's sharp. When you're passing through the masjid, and that sharp edge is exposed, somebody could get hurt accidentally. So when you're passing through a machine, you have to hold the arrow with a sharp head in your hand.
Okay, start it doesn't hurt anybody. Nobody feels threatened by it. What does it show?
Respect for the masjid respect for the people of the masjid that health care for the person should be when he is even passing through the masjid.
How does an affidavit of Mr. Eden Paula hypothenar sofian Kala he said, All to London, I said to us, America jabiru of nerve dilla Did you hear Javid bin Abdullah Yoku, he was saying that Malala julen a man passed will mustard in the masjid Omar who see him on and with him were some arrows for Karla who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam said to him, I'm sick, being in Swahili her, hold them by their heads. So he's asking him, did you hear Java say that? So what do we learn from this hadith that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't prohibit the men from passing through the masjid with the swords? Meaning he didn't prohibit him from
bringing the arrows in the masjid, he allowed him to bring the arrows in the masjid because he owns them and he has to pass through the masjid. So he has to take them along with him. But he taught them the etiquette.
And what's the etiquette? Hold it with its pointed edge in your head so that nobody gets hurt, and nobody feels threatened.
And it shows to us that anything that is similar to an arrow should be held in the same way. Okay, when a person is passing through the masjid, for example, there could be an event in the masjid. Let's say in the cafeteria section, fruit has been cut and there are knives and person has to go through the master to the other end. So what should he do? hold the knife like the sand pass through the mustard? Yeah, no. People feel threatened. Right? They might feel scared and another person might get accidentally whatever person trips. And you know, it's it could be very dangerous. So it shows that anything that can cause her to other people should be you know, held with caution,
transported with caution.
Bab el Moodle refill Masjid, passing through a musty meaning a person is not going to pray at the masjid. Is he allowed to just pass through the mustard?
Is he or she allowed to pass through the mustard? Yes. But then we learned that if anyone goes to the masjid and they have to pray to it, but that's for who?
The one who's going to sit down. This is what just passing through. I was once in a very small town in Pakistan. And there was a Masjid that we went to. And there was an upstairs section for the women. So we went up and as I was growing up, I saw people going into the masjid carrying things on their head and you know, carrying shopping bags and I'm wondering where are they going in the masjid is that big. And when I went up, I saw that there was another, you know, opening to the masjid. So basically the people walked through the masjid to go to the other side. It was like a shortcut for them. So and this was not just in that place, many places. the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu
Sallam was also like that the doors of people's houses would open to the masjid, some of them right, including the house of the prophets of Allah center. And this shows that the masjid had several openings. So obviously, people would pass through. So it shows that a person may pass through the masjid. There is no sin in that no disrespect in that he is allowed to do that. However, if they're carrying something then they have to be careful that how did it pass through the must've
had this an Amazon US Marine cola had the center of the warhead called Abu Abu Abdullah Samir to available
Delta V, and in a BSL Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Man, whoever Madeira he passed vishay in. In anything we massage it in our from our massage as well Pina or our marketplaces be nibblin with arrows, okay? Meaning if there is any person who passes through our massages, or through our marketplaces, carrying what carrying arrows folia holds, then he should hold alanya solea by their heads, why layer, he should not injure or wound, bigger fee by his hand Muslim and a Muslim, meaning no Muslim should be injured by his hand at his hand, even accidentally, and the stitches are very important life lesson as well. That if there is anything that could
potentially be, you know, a danger to others, what should we do? Be careful about it. You know, for example, if you have a big bag behind you, and you're walking amongst people, and you know that that big bag can hurt other people. So what should you do, swing it on your shoulder,
do readjusted and not care about the people who are behind you. So they're, you know, getting hurt by it. No, be careful, be courteous, you know, towards the people who are around you. That many times massages are maintained, there's a lot of emphasis that is put on cleaning a mustard, keeping it perfectly fine. But at the same time, people are not safer with it. They don't feel secure with it, because they know they will be humiliated, they will be insulted in public, they will be yelled at. So this is something that's inappropriate, where we are very concerned about the rules. We should also be concerned about human feelings. It's like and we done it should be done in fact, but
it has to be done with care and concern for others. umbrellas, that when it's raining heavily and people are coming into the masjid sometimes with their umbrellas open. They don't see who they are hurting. Right sometimes the ends are very sharp. They could hurt somebody. So let's be very careful about this in the parking lot. Let's be careful over there too
bad I surely feel mustard poetry in the masjid. Meaning is it allowed to recite poetry in the masjid? Or is it not allowed?
At the center of William O'Neal hakama even if you're in color abomination or even an Israeli color of Baroni, Abu Salah Mata Abdul Malik nurofen and the who semirara Hassan of myth Aboriginal Ansari Yeah, that he heard Hassan bin savate la De La Hoya on who yesterday especially do he was seeking Shahada meaning he was asking about who a lotta a Buddha Buddha are known for a testimony
that unto Luca law, I asked you by Allah, tell me how it's America. Did you hear a no BS en Allahu alayhi wa sallam, you're cool. Did you hear? Did you hear the prophets of Aldous? And I'm saying Yeah, her son or her son did respond. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. On behalf of the prophets, Allah sent a meaning reply in defense of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to who to the mushrikeen okay when they said we're support tree, insulting the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he said to her son that respond on my behalf. Allahumma yet who below hell kudos. And then he prayed Allah help her son with who grew helpless meaning angels up debri para Abu huraira, Abu rapolano
said, Now yes, I did hear the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying this. Now what happened was that one assignment said that, by the way, Who was he?
His voice was strong, his eloquence was really good. So he said many verses of poetry in praise of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in defense of the prophets are upon us. And in fact, I have a couple of books over here that my father brought me of assignment salad, okay, that are compiled off his poetry. So, anyway, so once hasn't been started, he was reading poetry University was saying that in the masjid, and people who are good at poetry, they don't just say verses a poetry, you know, at the same time, okay, they start reciting poetry almost everywhere, because it's spontaneous. So he was reciting poetry in the masjid. And our motto, I know, when he heard him, he stopped.
He said, No mustard. You're not supposed to be doing this because feeble youth in Edina law who a youth got that in the masjid. Allah subhanaw. taala has allowed that he should be mentioned he should be remembered. So, meaning that the massages are for the vicar of a lot. They're not for poetry, but has sand and Sabbath. He said that no, I said poetry in the masjid and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told me he
Ultimate draft for me. So obviously our motto on who wasn't just going to accept that he wanted more proof and evidence. So Hassan asked Abu Lyra Tell me, I asked you by Allah, did you not witness that? So Abu Dido said yes.
So this proves to us that in the masjid, poetry may be recited. However, this doesn't mean any kind of poetry. Okay, any kind of, you know, singing even because poetry is like singing these days? No, it doesn't mean it's general the permission is general, we have to see what is appropriate and what is not appropriate, because some scholars have said that poetry is just like column is just like normal speech,
in the sense that the rules that apply to normal speech also apply to poetry. So if a person says something, and it's good, then that column is good. So just like that, if there are verses of poetry, and they're conveying a good message, then they are present they're good. And just like that, if there's column if a person says something and it's bad, then what's the ruling then that it should not be said similarly poetry, if the message is bad, then it has to be avoided, it should not be recited it should not be set. So, just like that, for which we may be set in a Masjid However, one has to be careful that what is the message of it?
But also having harrowby for the masjid experiment in the massage in US have people have a halo Halo is the plural of HIPAA, from the word how what has helped me war. So as have held up are basically people who have war tools, war tools like spears and daggers and swords. And us how will help people who show you can say war tricks. You may have seen people playing with swords, real swords. Sometimes they're showing tricks. Sometimes it's maybe a competition to see who wins. And just like that with spears with daggers, there could be different things. And why is this done? for practice? It's like a show, so that people can watch and people can see okay, this is also something that you
can do with a dagger. This is also something that you can do with a sword. Okay, and it's a means of encouragement for people to learn those tricks. Just like these days when you have different competitions, whether it's a speech competition or any competition, let's say in a school, is it because what people are debating about is very, very important, not necessarily that alone is not the objective The objective is that children develop their skills, other kids they get motivated. So just like that was how will help if there are some people who perform such tricks who do such shows. Can they be held in the masjid?
Can they be held in the masjid? Yes, they can be us how will harrowby will must've
had the center of the disease of no Abdullah Ibrahim of Messiah I'm sorry, Hannah, and she has been caught up on a lot of news debate and a shadow shadow and as she said, let's look at Rasulullah sallallahu early alayhi wa sallam a Yeoman. One day I saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Allah babyhood rotti at the door of my room. He was standing right at the door of my room. And obviously, his back was towards the room and he was facing the masjid will have a shadow and there were some Abyssinian men. They were yellow or Boone FL Masjid. They were playing in the masjid, performing their tricks what a suit of lies on Allahu alayhi wa sallam and the Messenger of Allah was yes to
Tony. He was screening me very that he with his clock, and I'm Zulu. I was watching Illa Larry be him do their play, meaning I was looking at their play at their game. So I showed our handheld was standing behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam screened with the cloak of the Prophet sallallaahu cinnamon She was also watching Zelda Ibrahim have been wounded had doesn't have no weapon Alanna. Eunice is she having an herbal attack eyeshadow palette? She said eight and a BS Allahu alayhi wa sallam will have a Chateau de la buena be here lobby him. She said I saw the prophets on water Southern when the Indians were playing with their spirits. So in this hadith are many lessons First
of all, we see that playing with such war tools is permissible in the masjid. Okay, this game with this show was with spears. It's more like a practice. It's not just a waste of time.
Like archery or, or something like that depends on how big the mustard is. So such things can be done. Like for example, at the recent read party, okay, there were certain games at work held in a Masjid.
Exactly, there were boxes that were stacked up and children had to use both
And try to knock all of them down with one shot. So anyway,
can this be done in a mustard? Yes, this must sit is multipurpose. So it's a different scenario. But even if it was just a mustard, even then it could be done. People might say but this is Laurie Ben love and lovable. No,
no, it's not just Larry bits to play. Yes, true, but it's not a waste of time. It develops skills, it's a means of entertainment light entertainment for the people halaal Entertainment. So why not?
karate classes in the masjid fine, no problem. Likewise, if there are some good and beneficial video games, right and free, I say okay, that are not violent. If the boys want to play them in the masjid, even on a big screen, is that permissible? Yes, as long as they are benefiting them more than they are harming them.
To some extent when it becomes a an obsession, then they become hasty and extremely violent in their behavior
become impatient, so that parents have to keep an eye on if such activities are actually held in the mindset, it will attract the children.
Also, we see that it is permissible to participate in actions which are
not even in the masjid meaning they can be done like this show that the Indians were doing this game that they were playing, was it an act of worship? wasn't an act of worship? No, it wasn't. Was it Salah? Was it Corrado Quran? Was decree law? No, then it was still permissible. Okay. So you have to see, as long as it is purposeful, it is beneficial, it is allowed, as long as there is fade in it, meaning the benefit is more than the harm.
The benefit is more than the harm. So for example, if there's a, let's say, children come to play basketball, or something at the masjid. Is that permissible? Yes, as long as they're also creating Salah on time, now that they're busy playing basketball for hours and hours, and they're not praying, instead of sitting for hours because they're outside playing basketball. So you have to see that the benefit has to be more than that.
Also, this Hadees proves that it is allowed for a woman to see men who are non Muslim, because there are some people who say that women are not allowed to look at men even. Okay, but we see that I shall deliver on her what was she doing? She was watching them where they were home to her. Not at all. She was watching them, but we see that certain conditions apply over here. First of all, that she has to be in hijab, she was screened off with a shot of the prophets of Allah, Allah. And another version, we find out that her head was on the shoulder of the prophets of autism so that she was watching from behind him. Okay, she was watching from behind him.
So it is permissible. Likewise, when a woman is watching men, whatever work they're doing, even if they're playing a game, whether it's on television or something else, if she's watching them, then she has to see that with what intention is he is she looking at them? There should be no telling the meaning a woman should not be looking at them seeking pleasure. Okay, like enjoying watching them? No, this is something that has to be avoided. Because some people think, Oh, no, only men have to lower their gaze sometimes. No, women also have to do that. I remember I was very young. Okay, and there was some game thing was cricket or something on the television? No, I think it was a person. A
low Artem, some men on the television. Can I was staring like children do. And my mom said to me don't look like that.
And I was like, Why is she telling me that don't look at the man.
Because the thing is that you keep looking and looking and then
the thoughts sometimes wonder. So this is something that has to be developed from a very young age.
So you may look, but don't stare.
You may look but don't, you know, look with an adult or you know, any such feeling. Also we see the kindness of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam towards his wife. But how he let her watch, he covered her. She's watching from behind him, but he let her watch this shows that the father or the husband may take the family somewhere so that they can have some halal entertainment. As long as there is no sin involved. A family outing for the purpose of entertainment, enjoyment is permissible. It's not a waste of time. It's an opportunity for the family to come close together. And you see in a family there are different kinds of people right. You may be very serious. You may think that all going to,
you know like an amusement park is a complete waste of time. Going to the zoo, you might say it's a waste of time, so many hours.
I could spend that, you know, catching up on my work. I could, you know, you tell the children Oh, no, let's go and volunteer somewhere, you have children as well, and they have needs, and they need to be taken out somewhere as well.
So look the profits on a lot of cinemas letting go and have watched that game. And using children who live in your houses don't have the need to watch such games. They do. They want to watch as well, especially in school and everybody's talking about it, they have that need. So you have to fulfill that need, you have to look after them. It doesn't mean that the main focus becomes entertainment and enjoyment that no matter where a person goes, always looking for, you know, amusement parks, and that is where the entire time and money is spent. No, there should be a balance. But these things should also be done. I remember, when we first came to Canada, my brother
was very young. I'm sharing these stories with you so that you realize that this is normal. And everybody was talking about, oh, you have to go to Wonderland, you have to go to Wonderland. Okay, that's something that people really encourage. So that's something he wanted to do. And we said, okay, we all went as a family, spent a couple of hours over there, pray there it there. My father went on rides with my brother. So did I and my sister. Not on every single ride, we didn't wait for hours, nobody, we did go on some rides, we did spend some time enjoying ourselves. And it was a time to sit together to observe many things to learn many things, to discuss many things. It was a whole
day spent together. So if this is done for a reason that the main reason is not entertainment enjoyment, but the main reason is to spend time with your family connect with them. There is no harm. And as long as it's not your main focus, not that every year there is a season's pass, and every weekend, you know the whole family is going to Wonderland. No, it can be done. Sometimes it's the need. We are human beings where we need to worship we also need to enjoy ourselves, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he worshiped in the masjid and he also watched the Indians play. So there's no sin in that. The balance is very, very important to remember. Anytime you go to an extreme, it's not
It's not healthy at all.
Yes, in your bag, you should always have a beneficial material. I remember as we were waiting in line, I had the book companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Because they have like short passages, okay, about every companion. It was readable, something that we shared amongst ourselves. It wasn't that the whole time we were reading, no, we were talking, we were reading we were enjoying a whole day was spent very, very beautifully. So this is something that's important to remember a lot. And also enjoy yourself sometime.
Because you know, children have this extreme, sometimes desire that I have to do this, I have to do it. And once they do it, then they're fine,
then they're fine, then it's not a big deal. So sometimes parents have to take their children to the movies. Sometimes they have to, because if your teenager is saying everyday, I want to go to the theater with my friends, I want to go I want to go I want to go one day they will go without asking you without telling you. So you have to take them yourself one day as hard and difficult as it is. And you have to show them what is appropriate what is not. You have to make them realize why you don't go why you don't encourage them. But sometimes you have to do
as hard as it is upon you. But you as a parent as a model B you have to do. Everything has good in it and evil in it. So just make sure that the good is more
That's the hero going to be like I said, I'm ready
