00:00:30 --> 00:00:34

Yeah, are you Halina amanu or you who have believed

00:00:35 --> 00:00:42

coolamon pyy, Betty Mendoza Conoco eat from the good things which we have provided for you.

00:00:43 --> 00:00:53

Wash guru dinner, and be grateful to Allah in quantum iya hooter Boone, if it is indeed him, that you worship.

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

Yeah, you have levina.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:01

Over here, the believers are being addressed.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:08

Previously, the same command was given to all people to all mankind.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:14

We read earlier, yeah, are you Hannah's pulumi method only had items over.

00:01:16 --> 00:01:42

And over here, the believers specifically are being addressed. The command of eating Halloween and for you, is beneficial for the entire mankind. It is beneficial for everyone. But it is especially important for the believer. Because as we know, that when Allah subhanaw taala gives a command, after seeing yet a few 100 in an avenue, then what does it mean?

00:01:43 --> 00:01:51

That fulfilling or following this command is a part of perfecting and completing one's email.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:59

So if you're truly believers, if you want to complete and perfect your email, then what do you have to do?

00:02:00 --> 00:02:03

You must eat that which is Hello, and for you.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:17

And because the addresses with a euro it is with me that it shows the importance of this command, that it is very important for you or believers, that you must eat that which is Helen and

00:02:18 --> 00:02:31

kulu all of you eat either what mentai ghiberti of the good things, the word play you bet is the plural of the yerba with a term or Buddha

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

and Jeeva is the feminine of play

00:02:36 --> 00:02:40

and play you is that which is good into

00:02:41 --> 00:03:08

basically, the word for you is the opposite of hobbies, hobbies is that which is unclean, that which is impure, something that is disliked and playable is the opposite of that, there were plenty of has been understood in several ways. First of all, it has been said that for you is that which is clean, both physically in the tangible sense and also in the intangible sense.

00:03:09 --> 00:03:14

Secondly, it has been said that by you is that which is pleasing,

00:03:15 --> 00:03:23

that which a person likes that which a person enjoys, the heart enjoys, the heart is satisfied with it.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:32

It doesn't smell bad, it doesn't look bad, but it is appealing. Thirdly, for you applies to that which is beneficial

00:03:33 --> 00:04:29

that which is beneficial. For example balderton for you, but about a city that is a Yuba is a city a land which is clean, which is beautiful, the environment is clean and the land is also very fertile. So, there is a lot of produce, that is what bother them for HIPAA is a good land. Just imagine a good land, the environment is good, the land is good, the land is fertile, there is a lot of benefit, this is what it is. There is a fourth meaning of the word play and that is suitable or favorable. Something which is suitable or favorable. For example in the Quran rehome for you better return by Eva, Rhea meaning wind that is the yerba is when that is favorable, when that is in your

00:04:29 --> 00:04:33

favor that is blowing in your favor, not against you.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:49

And this has mentioned in the context of the ships because their ships when they're on the scene, when they're moving forward, what do they need to propel forward wind that is favorable. So for you is also that which is favorable.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

So over here, we know about four meanings of the word play what are they clean, pleasing, beneficial and suitable, favorable for a person

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

Suitable for a person.

00:05:02 --> 00:05:13

Over here we see that the command has been given to the believers that they must eat of that which is for you. And this expresses to us the mercy of Allah soprano

00:05:14 --> 00:05:24

that he has commanded us to eat, he has commanded the believers to benefit from the blessings that he has placed on the earth.

00:05:25 --> 00:05:42

And in implementing this command, the believers they don't just benefit physically, but they also get reward. The simple act of eating becomes a means of obtaining reward. Why? Because it is done in obedience to a muscle.

00:05:44 --> 00:05:48

So over here, we've been told to eat and what are we supposed to eat?

00:05:50 --> 00:06:04

Now keeping the four meanings of Tibet in mind, first of all, what is by you that just clean? So what does it mean? That the food that we eat should be clean and not filthy? In the tangible sense?

00:06:05 --> 00:06:08

And in the intangible sense? How should it be clean? that it should be?

00:06:10 --> 00:06:15

In the intangible sense? How is the food clean? It is Helen.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:27

Because remember, food, that is heroin is not clean. I'm not saying it's not physically clean, I'm saying in the intangible sense, it is unclean.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:44

And specifically, because over here, only thing that is mentioned halaal is not mentioned. Therefore, the meaning of halon is within the meaning of permissible is within play, because what you have is something that is clean in the tangible and intangible sense.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:54

So that's the first condition and you know about the conditions of food being halon, that it has to be highlighted in and of itself, and secondly, in the way that it has been acquired.

00:06:56 --> 00:07:23

The second meaning of the word play of is that which is pleasing. So the food is enjoyable. And remember that everything that our last panel data has made, has created for us to eat is enjoyable, and everybody has their own preferences. So we have no right to say, Oh, this food is not good. And this food I don't like and therefore we begin to criticize food or different cuisines. The profits are a lot isn't as we discussed earlier, he never criticized any food that was presented to him.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:27

If you don't like it, don't have it, just don't criticize it.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:45

And the third meaning of the word value is that which is beneficial. What does that mean? That the food that a person eats it should be nutritious, it should be wholesome, it should be healthy, it should be filled with nutrients, not filled with junk.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:52

So we should be particular about the food that we eat, it should be of good quality, it should be of good quality.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:59

Many times we end up eating more processed food. Why? Because we say it is cheaper than fresh food.

00:08:00 --> 00:08:07

It may be true, but it's better to eat less and more nutritious than to eat more and less nutritious.

00:08:08 --> 00:08:14

And fourthly, piab also includes languages suitable. What does he mean by that?

00:08:15 --> 00:08:41

That food that is suitable for a person's diet? Some people, they have certain allergies or certain intolerance to a particular type of food. And they shouldn't say that, oh, it's hard to I should eat it. No, you should see is it really good for you? If it's not suitable for you if it's going to make you ill? If it's going to make you more sick if it's going to worsen your disease if your stomach cannot handle it then you shouldn't have it it's not good for you.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:45

So kulu min per EBIT, Mel's are gonna

00:08:47 --> 00:09:12

eat are the good things, which good things matters are Konerko which we have provided for you. Now we see over here, that Allah Subhana, Allah is the one who has provided all the food to us. But we say that no, I went to the grocery store, and I bought the food myself from the money that I earned. And the food was brought to the grocery store by that particular company, who brings the food over there.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:35

And the farmer, he grew it. So how come Allah subhanaw taala saying that he provided it we earned it ourselves. Or sometimes we grow some food in our backyard, some vegetables, we have done it ourselves. But Allah says, Man was a clinical that which we have provided for you, this psychology that whatever I have,

00:09:36 --> 00:09:41

it's from me reading I have acquired it. It's me. This is nothing new.

00:09:42 --> 00:09:57

Our own who was a very rich man who had a lot of wealth, and he was from the Bani Israel. What did he said about his wealth, that inner UI to either in Indy? I have been given it because of the knowledge that I have. And what happened to him?

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

What happened to Karen Do you know

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

He was swallowed up by the earth,

00:10:04 --> 00:10:06

the Earth would open and he was swallowed in.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:12

This is a result of someone who does not acknowledge the blessings of Allah.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:33

Yes, apparently, we have acquired the food ourselves by our effort. Apparently we have purchased the food ourselves. But who provided the means to us that we earned that money that we go to the store, and we buy that food.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:47

What happens at times, when you're not able to go get the groceries, you're not able to go. And sometimes you're like, Oh my god, there is nothing left, I don't have milk, because you weren't able to go to buy groceries.

00:10:48 --> 00:11:06

So, who is the one who provides the means to us to go and obtain the food to go and get the food. Similarly, who is the one who has provided the means do grow food, to harvest the food, to sell the food to cook the food to prepare the food and also prioritize

00:11:08 --> 00:11:12

and who is the one who has created it? Not you are lost.

00:11:13 --> 00:11:20

So coloman for you, Betty, Moussa Conoco, each of the good things that we have provided you.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:28

And you notice over here, that models are canonical that which we have provided you mean everything that we have given you.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:47

We read earlier in sort of Baccarat 29, that one lady Hala Kanako method of vigenere, it is he who created for you all of that which is on the earth. So everything that is on the earth has been created for who for the human beings

00:11:48 --> 00:11:58

and all those things. What are we to eat that which is for you, which includes vegetables includes fruit, it includes meat includes milk,

00:11:59 --> 00:12:14

so there is no buy it in giving up meat and milk. And thinking that if I become a vegetarian, I will be more righteous? No, there is no biotene that piety is in eating the food that Allah has given.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:44

enjoying the food that Allah has given? Because over here, a command is being given kulu eat many times, right? No, no, I'm not gonna eat this. And we've literally made some foods, ramen ourselves. We don't have any allergies to those foods, but we've literally met them pyramidal cells, we will never touch them. Some people like this with seafood, with fish, some people like that towards lentils towards vegetables, but we should enjoy these different types of food there are lots of hands on has given

00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

and upon eating, what should we do? Wash guru

00:12:49 --> 00:12:50

and be grateful to Allah.

00:12:51 --> 00:13:39

Be grateful to Allah for what? For what? For the food that Allah has provided for the variety of food that He has given? For the beauty, for the taste for the fragrance for so many things that you enjoy when you eat food. You know, when you're enjoying when we're eating food. It's not that we're getting nutrition from it only when you put it in your mouth, what happens? You taste the food, that is an enjoyment. You smell the food, you look at the food, you feel the food all of that is what you're enjoying it with all of your senses. So watch Coralie levy grateful to Allah be grateful to a lot for this food for this variety for the beauty for the vibrant, lovely colors. You know,

00:13:39 --> 00:13:53

sometimes you just look at some vegetables and you're like, I have to buy this I have to eat this. And you look at a particular fruit and look so beautiful. A particular herb you smell it, and you just have to use it. It's so fragrant.

00:13:54 --> 00:13:58

So watch kuruvilla be grateful to Allah soprano.

00:14:00 --> 00:14:06

Now the word shook, literally it means praise. And technically it means gratitude.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:20

And in the Sharia, shackle is to remain in obedience to continue in obedience to the one who pistols to the one who gets

00:14:21 --> 00:14:31

so watch coronella be grateful to Allah, meaning express gratitude to Allah soprano data for the food that He has given.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:39

How will we express gratitude to Allah for the food that He has given us, first of all, through our, through our heart

00:14:40 --> 00:14:50

that we know and we believe that the food that we have, the favors that we enjoy the variety that we enjoy? Who has given these to me

00:14:51 --> 00:14:51


00:14:53 --> 00:14:56

the person should believe that in his heart, Allah is the one who has given it to me.

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

I didn't cook the food and put all

00:15:00 --> 00:15:05

flavoring. I mean, somebody made that food so beautiful that you just assemble it together. And it turned out to be so good.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:18

Because many take pride in cooking their food in a particular way and their food is the best. But who is the one who gave you the ability to cook in that way to use those ingredients also?

00:15:20 --> 00:15:32

Secondly, express gratitude to allow through the design through the tongue. Let's say the south as well. don't boast, don't show off, but appreciate in front of others. Many times on the dinner table, where do we talk about?

00:15:33 --> 00:15:36

his food is not like this and not like that?

00:15:37 --> 00:15:44

Or if the food is good, how did you cook? What did you do? And we don't think about praising the last panel.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:55

We don't think about, you know, Subhanallah The flavor is amazing, or the fruit is amazing with the food is amazing. Or we don't think about saying and hamdulillah

00:15:56 --> 00:16:04

so through the lesson, how praising Allah subhanaw taala for that beautiful food, and upon eating, saying and humbling

00:16:06 --> 00:16:09

upon eating, saying that, as well.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:25

And thirdly, we express gratitude, how through joy through our lives, that upon eating the food, what should a person do? He should use that energy that he has gained, in what way in obeying almost

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

in physical laws.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:38

He made you happy by giving that food to you. He pleased He made you so happy by giving that routine. So Shouldn't you make

00:16:39 --> 00:16:41

by being obedient in return?

00:16:42 --> 00:17:01

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yeah, you Hannah's in the law even lay acabado a lotta even. We're in Allaha ammeraal movie Nina Bhima. Amara Hill mousseline for color. Yeah. And you have also new kulu Amina Yvette watermelon in the veena Dharma Luna de

00:17:02 --> 00:17:32

Allah messenger sallallahu Sallam said, Verily, Allah is pure, and he accepts only what is pure. And indeed Allah has given those orders to the believers, which he has given to the messengers. What order did he give to the messengers, he has said, All messengers, eat from the pure foods and work righteousness, be obedient, work, marylu slide do Amen. That is righteous.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:39

So we see that part of gratitude is being obedient to almost.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:47

So in other words, shock, or gratitude is another name for good deeds.

00:17:48 --> 00:18:02

Gratitude, sugar, is another name for good deeds. Because when a person is grateful to Allah in his heart, upon his tongue, through his actions, what is he doing good deeds, so shook his goodies.

00:18:03 --> 00:18:10

And upon eating, we should all remember that we must avoid words of ingratitude.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:22

It is possible sometimes the food that the person who prepared the food, they didn't really do a good job, or they made the same food again, it's possible, but we shouldn't say words of gratitude.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:36

And we should remember those who don't even have what we're enjoying, who don't even have a fraction of what we enjoy, who haven't seen hot, fresh food, in weeks and weeks.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:39

There are so many people out there.

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

And part of doing sugar is how

00:18:44 --> 00:18:50

is by sharing the food that the last time God has given to us with those who do not have

00:18:51 --> 00:18:55

sharing the food that Allah has given to us with those who do not have.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:27

So over here, all of us are being commanded kulu Mia, Yvette, each of the good things, each of the good things which good things models are gonna come which we have provided you, wash kuruvilla and also be grateful to Allah in quantum Yehuda Boone, it is only him that you worship, meaning if it is really Allah subhanaw taala that you worship, then you must eat of the good things, and you must be grateful for the food that you eat.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:35

If you really worship Allah, then you must do two things. What are the two things that are mentioned here?

00:19:36 --> 00:19:43

Eat have only that which is the year and secondly, be grateful upon eating this one.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:53

So we learned from this part of the ayah that eating halal and for you is a part of ariba it is a part of worship.

00:19:54 --> 00:20:00

Apparently eating and drinking seems to be a very worldly thing. But it has nothing to do with our

00:20:00 --> 00:20:07

Whether it shouldn't have anything to do with one's fate, but the reality is that it has a deep connection with worship.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:34

Because whatever a person eats, it affects him. So for example, if a person eats less than what the body requires, or more than what will happen, the person will become ill, he may be malnourished, and if he eats rotten, or spoiled food or burnt food, what's gonna happen? What's gonna happen, he's gonna have a stomachache, he could get sick.

00:20:35 --> 00:20:44

So when a person becomes sick, when a person becomes ill, when a person becomes weak, is he able to continue to do?

00:20:45 --> 00:20:45


00:20:46 --> 00:21:08

Is he able to pray regularly? No. Is he able to perform the record properly? No, because his knees are hurting, or his legs are hurting, or something or the other, he himself has a headache, or he's not feeling well. So eating good, eating for you, is very important, so that we are able to do in other

00:21:10 --> 00:21:16

federal laws of Canada says, in no matter how long our legs laico Mater, what, what,

00:21:17 --> 00:21:36

he has only forbidden to you, dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and a few other things that are mentioned over here in Nima in Noma, as you know, is a hassle, it gives them meaning of Indeed, this is the only case it specifies the meaning.

00:21:37 --> 00:21:43

So over here, indeed, he has only forbidden to you, such and such foods,

00:21:44 --> 00:21:51

as we learned earlier, that the rule is that everything is permissible, unless otherwise stated.

00:21:52 --> 00:21:54

So each of the good things as long as

00:21:56 --> 00:22:09

you've acquired them in the right way, each of them, but these things you're not allowed to eat. Why? Because they're held on, they're not allowed for you to eat. They're not permissible for you to eat in number, indeed, number.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:17

But remember, that in this I in particular, the entire list of the forbidden foods is not given.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:43

The entire list of the forbidden foods is not given in this ayah only. There are many other verses. There are many other ahaadeeth, which tell us about other foods that are forbidden, which are not mentioned in this verse. So when you read this verse, don't say, oh, it says in nursery, it's only these things that are forbidden, everything else is permissible. No, this is not the only list. Because you don't have to just take one ayah you have to look at everything I

00:22:44 --> 00:23:00

have on hallowmas from the roof that has helped me. So he has forbidden or they come upon you or believers meaning he has forbidden upon you to eat to consume these things. Which things first of all, almeyda

00:23:02 --> 00:23:05

alimenta is from the roof batteries meme, well the

00:23:06 --> 00:23:13

mean well, the moat means that and Mater is that which is dead,

00:23:15 --> 00:23:15

what is made the

00:23:17 --> 00:23:21

corpse, a dead animal. That is what maintains

00:23:22 --> 00:23:32

literally in the language, the word Mater applies to any animal that has died, a death that is not caused by man.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:42

For example, an animal falls off a particular place and dies, or an animal becomes sick and it dies.

00:23:43 --> 00:23:48

Or an animal is killed by another animal. That is what made that in the literal sense.

00:23:49 --> 00:24:00

But in the sheer, the word Mater does not just refer to that animal, which dies a death not caused by men, but it applies to several other things.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:06

First of all, Mater applies to an animal which dies a natural death.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:25

So for example, if it's too old or they were sick or it fell or something like that, it was killed by another animal. That is what matters. Secondly, the word matter also applies to the animal which is not slaughtered properly, and is killed through any other way.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:43

For example, stunning the animal electrocuting the animal what happens? Many times the animals die before they're actually slaughtered. If they die before they're slaughtered, then what happens? That particular animal is a Mater it is that it is not permissible for us to eat it.

00:24:45 --> 00:24:53

Thirdly, the word Mater also applies to the animal which is slaughtered. But the blood does not flow out of the body completely.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

So for example, the person who is slaughtering the animal, they just slit the throat and then he goes on

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

Rest of the body, and he didn't wait for the entire blood to flow out.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:08

In that case, also, the animal is considered.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:16

Then the word Mater also applies to an animal that is not slaughtered by a Muslim.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:20

That is not slaughtered by a Muslim.

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

Or an animal that was not slaughtered by someone from among the People of the Book.

00:25:26 --> 00:25:34

And obviously, when we say people of the book, it means that they should have slaughtered it, while following the correct conditions as well.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:57

Many times people say, or people of the book includes Christians and Jews. So if you eat over here, any meat, you know, Christians have done it. So it's okay, kosher, okay, they have very strict conditions. But as for general places that are on many places, it's not even Christian people who are slaughtering and even if they are slaughtering, they're not necessarily following the rules that they have been given.

00:25:58 --> 00:26:04

So you can't just generalize, you have to make sure that you know that it was offered the proper way.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:10

So in the know Havana, la Cohen, writer, he has made the dead animals have

00:26:12 --> 00:26:16

made the a dead animal is not by you, it is not clean,

00:26:17 --> 00:26:20

which is why it is hermanas and it is not permissible for us to eat it.

00:26:22 --> 00:26:24

What else has he forbidden with them and the blood,

00:26:25 --> 00:26:32

though of them is a singular blood and demand is plural. He has also made blood How am upon

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

what does it mean by that?

00:26:35 --> 00:26:39

Blood over here refers to flowing blood demand must flow

00:26:41 --> 00:26:44

flowing blood, liquid blood or blood that has been spilled.

00:26:45 --> 00:26:54

But as for the blood, that clot in the bones, or inside the nerves, or under the flesh, that is okay.

00:26:55 --> 00:27:16

Many times you've cooked the meat, and then what happens? You remove the flesh and you see blood over there and you say, Oh my god, I don't know. That's not held on. Why? Because when the animal was slaughtered, to the best ability, people took out all the blood let the blood flow. And then if there remains any blood, within the nerves or so on and so forth, that is permissible to eat.

00:27:18 --> 00:27:24

What it means is that you shouldn't collect the blood as it is flowing out of the body and then consume that. That is forbidden.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:34

Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, we're in Atlanta Mater, then we're done. We were allowed do that animals and two kinds of blood

00:27:35 --> 00:27:43

do that animals and two kinds of bloods they are permissible for us to eat. According to this Hadith, which is mentioned it was

00:27:45 --> 00:28:02

for alma mater, Gan, Phil, who too Well, you're right. As for the two dead animals, which are they, they are the fish, and the locusts, or Ahmed demand, file cabinet work for her. And as for the two bloods, they are liver, and spleen, they are permissible for us to eat.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:29

If you look at it, the two dead animals are what fish and local fish we understand. But as for locusts, if you think of it insects, they don't have any blood inside them, and don't need to be slaughtered. And most of them don't have any circulatory systems either. So locusts, I know many of them. How can you ever eat locusts, they're insects, like grasshoppers, but they are permissible to eat

00:28:30 --> 00:28:35

was considered a delicacy, and still is considered a delicacy in certain cultures.

00:28:36 --> 00:28:44

They use them in chocolates in candies, if you don't like a particular food, don't criticize it. Remember the rule?

00:28:45 --> 00:28:56

Everybody has their own preferences. Different cultures appreciate different things. We are nobody to say their culture is bad, or their ways are bad. We are nobody to say that as long as Allah has made it permissible and is fine.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:05

in certain places, especially in the desert, or swarms of locusts and people eat them. And as for the two types of blood, what are the liver and spleen?

00:29:06 --> 00:29:47

liver and spleen? What are they? They're two organs of the body. And they're primarily concerned with filtering the blood, detoxifying the blood, cleaning the blood, and because of that they're always full of blood. Which is why even when you're cooking, you know liver or something like that. What What color is it? It's dark red, right even though all the blood that has been spilled out, but still there is blood and the spleen It is said that it holds extra blood as well. So what do we learn from this hadith that the two types of dead and the two types of blood they are permissible for us to eat? And if there are traces of blood on the bone or the flesh of the neath the nerves

00:29:47 --> 00:29:51

then it is permissible. If you don't eat it, don't eat it but once it's held on,

00:29:52 --> 00:30:00

if the fish is dead, it is permissible for you eat it which is why we learned that the companions once they were traveling, and they found a huge fish bite

00:30:00 --> 00:30:03

ashore, and that's what they ate, it was dead. But that's what they ate.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:12

What else is forbidden? While animal finzi and flesh of the swine, the word lamb is from the root letters lamb.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:25

And lamb is used for meat for flesh. And remember that the word Latin includes the tissue, the muscle, the skin, the fact the nerves, everything.

00:30:26 --> 00:30:51

And if you look at it, the tissue, the muscle, the nerves, the fact all of these, what are they connected with? The entire body. So by saying that, it's not just the flesh, it's not just the meat, that is forbidden, it's the entire swine, it's the entire pig. That is forbidden. Because the meat, the flesh, is what connects the entire body.

00:30:52 --> 00:31:02

And also, because some people think, you know, it's only the 100 is forbidden. So you can use the bonds using for stock, or use the hair use the rest of the body that just don't use the meat.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:10

Lamb over here has been mentioned Why? Because lamb is what people eat.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:59

Lamb is what is edible. The meat, the flesh is what people eat. And that is the part which people seek. Nobody will say, oh, if you only give me the bone, when you're eating meat, nobody will totally Give me the bone. What will they say? What will they say give me the meat without the bone. And actually people prefer boneless meat now. So because the context is off, eating, therefore lamb is mentioned. And lamb is what people want. And if what people want out of the pig is forbidden, then the rest of it is understood when I'm in frenzy, and the work indeed as you know is used for the pig. And the pig isn't is an animal that is omnivores, eat both plants and animals. And as for

00:31:59 --> 00:32:05

the rest of the livestock that we eat, what are they? They only eat plants they're herbivores.

00:32:06 --> 00:32:21

The study that was done in which they discovered that a pig will eat everything except for glass. So everything includes things that are filthy. And we've been told to eat that which is playing. So how can you eat an animal that eats filth?

00:32:22 --> 00:32:46

And something so disgusting that I learned very recently about these toilets that are in India. And they're known as the fake toilets, because their way of flushing is of giving the feces to the pigs which consumed them. They don't use water to flush out they don't use sewage. But what they do is that behind the toilets or bigs and they eat all the feces.

00:32:47 --> 00:33:17

So we've been taught to eat that which is an animal that eats failed. How can it be played? Some people might say Oh, but the animals that are kept in the farm. They don't eat but how do you know they don't eat their own filth? Or they don't eat the filth of other animals? They do? We've been told to eat a clean good wholesome and this animal is not clean. So well animal Kinsey is also forbidden

00:33:18 --> 00:33:35

woman and whatever meaning this is also forbidden what is forbidden Matt Okay, let whatever was called loudly be with it, leave it in there for other than Allah. But doesn't mean by this. Well, Hitler is from the root fetters had lamb lamb, her lamb than

00:33:36 --> 00:33:45

any other word from the same route. Not Helen. Her her. He learned very good, what is the Helen? The moon Crescent.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:51

Now, when the crescent when it is seen? What do people do?

00:33:52 --> 00:33:58

They announced the beginning of the new month or the ending of the previous month. Isn't it so?

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

So the Hillel the crescent? What does it do? It brings it level. What is a gland refer sold to raise one's voice? What does a gland mean? refer sold to raise one's voice.

00:34:16 --> 00:34:24

So he let it land is to pronounce to call out loudly? What does it mean by this

00:34:25 --> 00:34:30

man who he left behind for it. It refers to the animal the lady left for other than Allah

00:34:32 --> 00:34:49

when an animal is slaughtered when an animal is slaughtered, then the name of the one for whom the animal is being slaughtered or for who sick the animal is being slaughtered. Or to whom the animal is being dedicated to is pronounced at the time of slavery.

00:34:51 --> 00:34:56

So for example, when Muslims when we slaughter the animals, what do we say Bismillahi Allahu Akbar.

00:34:57 --> 00:35:00

And then when she came the Arabs, what they will do is

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

That at the time of slaughtering the animal, they will take any of their idol with me, whatever the name of the idol was. Sometimes they would take the name of the idol and they would also take the name of Allah soprano.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:25

And other times, they would not take the name of the idol, or not take anyone's name for that matter, but in their hearts, they knew who they were dedicating that animal to.

00:35:27 --> 00:35:33

So in some situations, nothing was pronounced over here, what does Allah say, leave it for other than Allah.

00:35:34 --> 00:35:46

Other than Allah includes anyone who has mentioned other than Allah, or anyone who has mentioned along with Allah, and later Allah also includes none being mentioned.

00:35:47 --> 00:36:10

So the only meat that we're allowed to consume is that on which the name of Allah Subhana Allah was pronounced not before eating, but at the time of slaughtering, remember, because it Lal, this has done not before eating, this has done at the time of slaughtering many people they think, okay, you should just say Bismillah before eating well, you should say Bismillah before eating anything for that matter.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:18

Okay, over here in Atlanta is what? pronouncing a las pantallas name at the time of slaughter.

00:36:19 --> 00:36:25

Now remember that sacrificing an animal is also an act of worship. Isn't it amazing?

00:36:27 --> 00:36:56

The food you eat, it's Alaska and you eat it you get rewarded, you sacrificed you slaughter an animal so that you can eat the meat. And if you do it the proper way, it becomes a ritual it becomes an act of worship, which is why we learn so little and am I a 160 to call in a celebrity. When new Suki when mahaya woman Murthy lillahi Rabbil alameen say that indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:06

So even if it's an animal that I'm slaughtering, so that I can eat the animal I can eat of the meat, whose name is to be mentioned, the name of the loss.

00:37:08 --> 00:37:31

Remember that if an animal is slaughtered, and at the time of slaughtering the name of a certain person, a righteous person, a saint, an angel, a prophet, if anyone has mentioned other than Allah, or if no one is mentioned even then that particular animal is not highlighted for consumption.

00:37:32 --> 00:37:32


00:37:33 --> 00:37:43

Because sacrificing an animal slaughtering an animal is an act of worship. And every act of worship must be for the sake of almost

00:37:44 --> 00:37:52

remember to hit lulea what Allahu Allahu Ahad? What does that mean? every act of your worship should be directed to Allah and Allah alone.

00:37:53 --> 00:37:58

any food? If it is dedicated to other than Allah, then it doesn't mean Hello.

00:37:59 --> 00:38:22

Even in intention, because sometimes the machine they wouldn't even say the name, they wouldn't pronounce it, but in their hearts, they knew what they were doing. Some people they might say, oh, but nobody's name is said nowadays, the only the Muslims say the name of other people, they don't say anyone's name. But right Allah other than Allah means it includes no one has one. So we'll now Okay, levy related.

00:38:24 --> 00:38:36

So, so far, what have we learned that four types of food are forbidden? Or bonus? What are they? What are they? First of all, any animal that is dead?

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

Even if it's otherwise an animal that has hunted a goat that dies? You can't eat it. Secondly, blood.

00:38:46 --> 00:38:47

Thirdly, swine.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:57

Fourthly, any animal that has been slaughtered and at the time of slaughtering someone other than Allah, his name was mentioned.

00:38:58 --> 00:39:13

So, the question is, which animals are allowed for us to eat or rather, when is a slaughtered animal permissible for us to eat? What does it mean by slaughtering an animal properly?

00:39:15 --> 00:39:25

There are several conditions. The first thing is that Allah subhanaw taala His name is to be mentioned alone, it has to be mentioned.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:40

And only Allah's Name is to be mentioned, not anybody else's. Secondly, the blood is to be drained from the dead animal that has been slaughtered.

00:39:41 --> 00:39:54

And thirdly, it has to be slaughtered by either a Muslim or someone from among the People of the Book. These conditions must be met in order for the animal to be considered Hello.

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

So these things are haram upon us and otherwise

00:40:00 --> 00:40:13

They are permissible to overhear the rest of the ayah talks about the exception. Because the deen that Allah subhanaw taala has given us is the deen which has ease in it. There is user in it.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:21

Familiar Torah. So whoever was compelled Otama is from the room fetters lot of a lot of a

00:40:22 --> 00:40:59

lot of is to harm and love. As we read earlier some thought Whoo hoo, that I will compel him What does it mean? It is to compel someone to do something that is harmful, or to compel someone to do something that they don't want to do. They find it harmful for themselves. So for Manitoba, whoever was compelled whoever was forced, whoever was obliged. He didn't want to, but he was forced, forced to do what? forced to eat of the hidden

00:41:00 --> 00:41:09

meaning he had no other choice. But if he eats with these conditions, and what are they first of all, labelling,

00:41:10 --> 00:41:19

he shouldn't be desiring. He shouldn't be craving that which is how long violin is from the veterus bat line? Yeah.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:47

And Baba literally means to seek to desire something. So bow limb, is one who desires otherwise, from the root letters belanja. The word also gives meaning of rebelling or being oppressive, being outrageous, crossing the limits. Why? Because many times in fulfilling our desires, what do we do? We cross the limits.

00:41:48 --> 00:41:53

Over here, in particular, Berlin, is one who desires

00:41:54 --> 00:42:01

so badly, he shouldn't be desiring to eat the Halong without any need.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:39

What are they and nor is he transgressing? Are the initial newsletters I then well, not I mean, well, that isn't newsletters is that well, from Earth one, and or the one is to exceed bounce? What does it mean, to exceed the bounds or do is from the same roof letters? So I then is one who is transgressing? One who is crossing the limit, one who is being disobedient? Or one who is going beyond the limit that would fulfill his need, further is not really that there is no sin upon him.

00:42:40 --> 00:43:02

What does it mean by this, that if a person is compelled, he is forced to eat that which is held on because of some extreme necessity, then it is permissible for him to do so Allah says there is no sin upon him. But the question is, what does it mean by extreme necessity?

00:43:03 --> 00:43:40

How can you say that that person is really being compelled by the situation? Is it that he's been forced by his friends, is it that he feels out of place, no. Extreme necessity bura is that which if it is not fulfilled, then there is lot of then there is harm. For example, if a person is just hungry, he wants to eat something. And he goes around and he tries to find some place where he can find halal food and he cannot find any place. Can he say that? Oh, because I'm hungry, I can just eat whatever is available to me. No, because that is not extreme necessity.

00:43:41 --> 00:43:53

Extreme necessity is that if the person does not eat, he will die. Or if he does not eat, he will become extremely ill, he will become extremely sick.

00:43:54 --> 00:44:06

When he has absolutely no other alternative or fulfilling his need. Extreme need extreme necessity, only then it is permissible for him to eat of that which is home.

00:44:07 --> 00:44:11

Remember, it's not just being hungry. It's not just being forced by friends. No.

00:44:12 --> 00:44:17

It is when there is absolutely no other choice. And if you don't eat, you're going to die.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:48

so in this situation, how can a person eat? How is he allowed to eat with two conditions? What are they viable belly, he shouldn't be desiring. He shouldn't be liking what the heroine food that he's eating. He shouldn't desire to eat it but in his heart, he should be extremely guilty. He should feel bad. He should dislike that her own food. He should not want to eat it. He should wish that he didn't have to eat it.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:54

So right about and he has no interest he has no desire to eat junk food.

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

And secondly, they are either he should not be transgressing.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:08

What is anybody who should not transgress, meaning you should not exceed the amount that would fulfill his necessity?

00:45:09 --> 00:45:37

For example, if he can survive by eating just three or four more cells, then he should stop at that. He shouldn't say, oh, since I'm eating, I don't know if I'll get the opportunity to eat this again, might as well eat a whole lot. No, that's not how it should be, verbally, well, I think he should not desire to eat it. And if he has to eat it, then he should not exceed the amount that could fulfill his need.

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

So if a person really has to be as no other choice, than Allah says, filler early, then there is no sin upon him.

00:45:46 --> 00:46:14

Why? Because in Allaha, over food over him, Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and he is also merciful, forgiving and merciful to who, for the one who eats the Hawaiian food out of being compelled against his will. And he eats it with guilt in his heart, with sadness, and he doesn't exceed the bounds for that person illegible photos.

00:46:15 --> 00:46:36

What do we say? No, doesn't matter, you see the most forgiving and merciful. Don't be do know, allez le photo Rahim to the one who is really compelled by the situation. So over here, we see that another expression of a loss of God's mercy to the believers is mentioned.

00:46:37 --> 00:46:57

how Allah Subhana, Allah is merciful towards the people, that he doesn't want us to destroy ourselves or kill ourselves by not eating in dire circumstances, if you have absolutely no food available, no hallel food that is available, there is absolutely no other choice than what

00:46:58 --> 00:47:02

than a person may eat of that, which is how long

00:47:03 --> 00:47:22

because you see, there in certain situations, eating is felt it is magic. In other situations, it is nice to have in other situations it is mobile, in other situations, it is prolong, depending on the situation. So if a person can eat and he doesn't eat, then whose fault is it,

00:47:23 --> 00:47:34

it is his fault, because Allah subhanaw taala has given the permission. And at the end of the day, Allah is the judge, we are no one to say that this person has killed himself, and it's his fault, and so on and so forth.

00:47:35 --> 00:47:46

So we see over here, the command to eat has been given. And the command to eat has been given Why? For the protection of our bodies. And remember that every command that Allah

00:47:48 --> 00:47:54

gives, do the people, there's always some benefit in that for the people.

00:47:55 --> 00:48:06

There's either protection of their bodies, or there's protection of their mind, or there's protection of their progeny, or there's protection of their wealth. There's always some wisdom behind it.

00:48:07 --> 00:48:22

And if there is an exception that is made, like we see over here, there is also wisdom behind it. And what is that wisdom, protection of our bodies from when a total layer of early while adding filler is smiley.

00:48:24 --> 00:49:02

As for the word is, it means sin. And the word Islam is from the root letters Hamza mean, and it's, as a prophet sort of artisan described it. It is that which you feel uncomfortable about in your heart, you feel uncomfortable about in yourself, and you don't want other people to find out about it. That's what it is. In yourself, you're not comfortable, you're not comfortable doing that particular action, you know, it's not really a good thing. You're doubtful, or you stop and you think, should I really do it, and you don't want that other people should ever find out about it.

00:49:03 --> 00:49:14

When it comes to eating our heart tells us if we should eat a particular food or not. And if we want other people to find out about the fact that we eat a particular food or not.

00:49:15 --> 00:49:20

So for that is marinade over here in this situation. for that person, there is no sin.

00:49:22 --> 00:49:23

Let's listen to the recitation.

00:49:25 --> 00:49:26


00:49:31 --> 00:49:35

bertina once upon a coup, Moscow,

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


00:50:17 --> 00:50:18

We have the choice to eat.

00:50:20 --> 00:50:43

There are people who are not able to eat, they're unable to eat and food is given to them through pipes that are connected through their stomachs or their throat. So we should be grateful watch kuruvilla be grateful to Allah for the food that we're able to eat the food that we're able to enjoy. You know there is pleasure in chewing food, in tasting food.

00:50:44 --> 00:50:46

So watch kuruvilla be grateful to Allah
