and yo hella Kamata You bet. This day all good foods have been made lawful for who? for you.
Aloma, which day? is this?
The day off out of? or What does aluma mean? Not that particular day. But it gives a sense of now oh hell Allah come it has been made lawful for you.
As you know that certain metadata is one of the last sources to be revealed in the Quran. In fact some say that it's actually the last surah the last of what was revealed on the Quran.
So whatever is Hillel in this surah is considered to be halal and whatever is haram and disorder is considered to be Haram.
There is absolutely no abrogation.
So if Allah is saying that, okay, let me pay you back. The good things have made lawful for you What does it mean?
It's all lawful.
And the thing you that's what things are talking about, first of all, they have to be handed and the explanation of halal has been mentioned very clearly in the previous ayah.
So the good things they have been made lawful for you, in South America, I 100. Allah subhanaw taala says, cholesterol hobbies What are you?
What are Joba catarratto hobbies?
The impure and the pure the good things and the bad things? They're not the same?
Even if the abundance of impure things It impresses you still, what is better
for you? Even if you have a lot of hobbies, what is better for you?
What are ammo and food and levena Auto kita of those people who are given the book
handler lakum that is also permissible for you. Now what is the mean by this, that the food of the People of the Book is permissible for you.
Over here, the word arm it does not refer to everything that is eaten, such as fruit and vegetables.
That if a Jewish person or a Christian person, if he gives you bread, if he gives you some fruits and vegetables that is held on for you, obviously even if I'm wish to offer that to you, it's hard for you.
So what's the point of saying what are our Latino tokita meaning their meat, their lamb, the meat that they offer you that is highlighted for you.
Now again, meet over here does not mean that all the meat that they offer you is handled for you. So for example, if a Christian consumes pork that is halal for you, because it's farm of alone, kita No.
But what does it mean?
That that meat of the animal that is Helen, meaning that has been slaughtered properly, that has fulfilled that meets all of the conditions of the cat? What is the cat
making some meat fit for consumption.
So that meat which the People of the Book offer you, but it has been slaughtered properly? Only that is lawful for you. Because if a Christian offers you pork, you're not going to take it. Similarly, if a Jewish man offers you some meat on which Bismillah was not pronounced or if the animal was not slaughtered properly, you're not going to eat it, because even from a Muslim, what do you accept?
Only Hello. So if this rule applies to a Muslim is not going to apply to the Apple pita. Of course it is if you accept from a Muslim only that which is halal. Similarly, you accept from the Jewish person only that which is halal.
Only that which meets the requirements of the cat.
And if somebody offers you something and they tell you that it's valid,
then accept what they're saying. It's not good to ask everybody. Where do you get your meat from and it's not appropriate. This is unnecessarily being paranoid about things when the other person is saying it is halal. You should accept whatever they're saying.
So what are Am I letting a little kid ever handler come to the fold of the People of the Book is permissible for you.
So what does it show to us that if there is a Jewish or a Christian person who slaughters the animal, obviously property by saying the name of Allah, as well as following the proper rules of slaughtering the animal, then that meat is also permissible,
like I mentioned to you earlier than what are the conditions of meat
Hello, first of all, it has to be slaughtered by who?
Either Muslim or Jew or a Christian. So this is the evidence.
And some people say that, you know, what this means is that whatever they offer you is lawful for you because Allah says what are Medina altogether hidden? So whatever they give you is lawful for you. No, it's not.
It has to meet the conditions, because then what's the point of telling us all of these details? Really? What's the big first thing
they say don't eat the meat of the machine and eat everything else.
There would be no reason to give out of these details now.
So with our Latina auto cadaver, hello Lacan, what this means is that the meat that the slaughter properly
by saying a last name, as well as the method of slaughter is also proper, that is permissible for you.
What are amacom and your food? Hello, whom it is lawful for them? What does it mean by this, it is lawful for them, meaning you are allowed to offer your food to them.
If you sell them your meat,
and then you take some money from them, in exchange for that meat, that money that you've taken his head out.
It's a lawful earning.
Similarly, if you offer your meat to them, and they accept it, it is okay for you to do that. There's nothing wrong in offering your meat to them.
Don't think that this halal meat is only for us. And a Jew cannot touch it. A Christian cannot touch it. Nobody else can touch it. No, you can give it to other people.
Because you see slaughter in our Deen is also a ritual.
Right? slaughtering an animal is also a ritual. Even if you're not doing it for South Africa, even if you're doing it just for eating yourself. It's still a ritual which is why you mentioned the name of Allah subhanaw taala.
So if it is a ritual it's of the shine of Allah
now doesn't mean that you give something that was a part of ritual to a non Muslim you can this is what has been mentioned over here
that will become halal know that your food is lawful for them meaning you may offer your food to them it's up to them whether they accept or not, that's another story. But you are allowed to offer
one more Sunnah to minelute minute and the chest women from the believers meaning the chase women among believing women what's on Earth has several meanings.
over him or Sonic gives a meaning of our fat if our FIFA meaning chaste woman
while Masato and the chase women mean alladhina Otto Peterman publico of those people who are given the book before you, meaning they're also offer for you, lawful for you, for what? Marriage, don't think slaughter, okay?
But this means it's for marriage, meaning you are allowed to marry chaste women from the believing women
and chaste women from the people of the book, meaning the Jews and the Christians.
Look at the condition, more Sunnah. Not just any Jewish woman, not just any Christian woman. There is a condition or Sunnah she has to be chaste. She has to be a righteous woman.
She has to be a clean woman.
One more sonet man and woman at one more slanted mean under the nose of
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said a woman is married for her Deen her wealth or her beauty?
You must go for the one with Deen. May your hands be in the dust? Meaning if you fail to take benefit from this advice.
So who should you make? Who should you select the woman who is good indeed.
So obviously the woman has been mentioned first. So she should be given priority.
But if a man wishes to marry a chaste woman from the people of the book, that is also permissible for him, he is allowed to do so. And we see that some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they did marry marks on admin and Latina
it is permissible.
You can say that, in some cases, it may be disliked because the woman is not chased.
Or that her Dean affects the children, though her Dean affects the husband.
But you can't say that it's held on because Allah has made it lawful. It is lawful, it is permissible. You can say it's disliked. You can argue however, you can't say that it's haram because Allah has made it lawful.
And remember, sort of maybe that's one of the final sorts to be revealed.
And over here, a Muslim man
has been allowed to marry a Christian or Jewish woman Why?
Because he is the
he is the CO one, the woman does not become the one
who is the leader,
So therefore, he has the right to decide how his children grow up, how his children are going to be treated?
Whose right is it?
The husband in our team, it's not going to be given to the woman.
Either I think the moment when you have given them, when you have given who,
the women, meaning whom you wish to marry, as long as you have given them or do rohana there.
meaning when the man benefits from the woman through marriage, he must benefit her too. And the man benefits from a woman through the marriage relationship, he must benefit her too.
And this starts from the time of marriage from the moment of nica
that he gives her some gift.
And it shows that he has taken responsibility to support the woman.
So either data woman or do rahoon there is a condition even when you marry a Christian or Jewish woman, you have to give her her mother.
Yes, it has to be given to the Muslim woman when you married her, but you have to give it to the Christian or Jewish woman as well, if you decide to marry
because it's possible that it's not in their culture, it's not in their religion. However, it's in your religion. It's the duty of the man to give it
so he has to give it
mostly Nina ones being chased. Meaning when you marry these women, you have to be chased.
marcelin is a part of marshalling and marshalling is being used for the men. Many times we think chastity is for women only. But what does Allah say mostly need meaning men also have to be chaste. that once you establish a relationship with them, enter into wedlock.
enter into a relationship of wedlock, fortify yourself.
Because remember our son, my son is not just for Chase, but it's also for someone who is married. So don't just have relations with these women and give them some wage. But rather you have to get married to them.
Because sometimes people think it's permissible to go to a Christian or Jewish, a non Muslim woman who is a prostitute. No, that even is not allowed. Because you are committing a sin, she is committing a sin fine, but you are committing the sin. So if you want to make her halaal for yourself, you have to have the nica you have to give her her mother.
What Sweeney, you have to enter into wedlock.
And the purpose of marriage is to fortify yourself is to protect yourself.
But they almost have been not ones who are fornicators mustafina is a Florida wasafi meaning when you have relations with these women, you should not do so outside of marriage.
Messiah hain What does it mean Danny in committing Zina
so don't have relations with these women outside of marriage, meaning don't commit Zina with them. Because if I What does it mean Zina
illegal sexual intercourse. Because if it literally means to shed the floor water, so it's just a fulfillment of desire. And that's it.
so vedamo saffi Hey, not as ones who are committing Zina
and others have said that an item was apprehended this also indicates that the purpose of marriage is not just to satisfy one sexual desire. But rather it is more than that.
That you're living as a family.
You're living as a family you take responsibility of one another.
The husband takes care of the wife he supports the wife The wife takes care of the husband we learned earlier in Sultan Missa where the roles of the men and the roles of the women were clearly described that you're not just living together as friends and having sexual relationship and living your own lives. No.
You're living together as a family. having children they are almost happy.
Whenever any of them and nor as ones who take secret friends.
Meaning you or men should not take these women. As secret friends elicit friends with the hoodie is a Florida with the hip. And then is a Florida hidden and who is a hidden
is a secret lover. Who a person has sexual relationship with
you understand, hidden is not just secret friend
But this is an illicit lover, secret lover.
So don't take these women as secret friends.
Because sometimes people don't get married, but they will just go to them to fulfill their sexual desire and that's it. Nothing more than that
will make for a man and whoever does confer with a man.
What does it mean by that whoever does confer with a man
that he says he is a believer,
but he does the actions of cowfish
he says La ilaha illa Allah, but in his actions, he rejects we learned earlier Oh forbid or could fulfill the covenant fulfill the contracts that you have made with Allah.
So when Allah has told you what what is halal and what is how long it is your obligation to follow? What is Helen
take what is halal is halal and take what is haram is heroin.
So if you say you're a believer in your actions, you're doing something completely different. That is what, God forbid. Amen. So Romania, for Bill Eman for the heavy pharma Lu. His deeds are waste. They're finished. Which deeds
the good deeds because
just as good deeds they erase evil deeds since
cemetery, a person sins also what do they do?
They erase his good deeds.
Like we learned that hazard. Envy, it consumes good deeds just like fire consumes dry wood.
So, for the heavy fire omalu his deeds have been wasted. Why? Because of the cover that he has committed because of the difference between his heart and his actions.
He says that he's a believer, but he's committing actions of coffee.
Well, Phil after it, and he will be in the hereafter. Meaning how serious of those who are losers?
Meaning if he dies in this day, he will be of those people who are losers in the effort.
What do we learn from this i?
First of all, we learn again about the fact that the matter of making something Hillel and making something haram belongs exclusively to Allah
and the oma who Hila lokomotiva By who?
because this matter belongs exclusively to a Muslim.
We also learn from this ayah that the food, the time of your houden. And Asana is also permissible for Muslims to consume
only the yogurt and then a soda and not other than them.
You understand? Only the Yahood and nesara and not other than them. So if you just go to a place, a random place, random restaurant,
and you say the market is a country of Christians, majority of the populations of Christians. So you assume that the butcher was a Christian.
And you order some chicken, you order some beef, you order some meat, and you eat it assuming that is a Christian? That's not correct. Why?
Because it's only Jews and Christians, only Jews and Christians and it's not just any food that they offer. It's that food which meets the requirements of that that I will discuss with you after I complete the lessons of this as to what type of food is really permissible when it comes from the Minnesota that's complete the lesson from this IFRS
30 we learned from this is that there is no harm in eating the food of the people of the work and offering them our food.
There is no harm in doing that.
We also learned about the permission and the allowance of marrying kitabi mercenaries What does it mean by kitabi? From the Lupita. But who will should they be more sonet.
We also learnt from this I bought the obligation of giving the math to the woman in order to make her permissible for oneself.
Because Annika in which the woman has not been given anything. She has been deprived of her mother. That is not correct.
Over here Allah says he they're ready to move on now. When you have given them What does it show that they're only permissible when you have given them their mouse?
If you don't give them a hug for the woman? That is incorrect.
We also know from this is about the obligation of publicizing vaniqa
that it should not be secret.
Well, I would definitely have done it should be publicized.
We also learned from this I bought the prohibition of any secret relationship between a non Muslim woman and a non Muslim woman,
a secret relationship.
A person might say, it's just a friendship, it's not dinner. But it's not just the private parts are committed in the eyes. It's the hands.
It's possible that when a person is sending a text message when a person is typing something on the computer, when a person is writing something with the hand when a person is driving somewhere, I mean, it's not just the private parts that commit Zina. But it's the rest of the limbs as well. When a person is going towards how long
so a relationship outside Africa, whether a person is married or not,
outside of nica with a non Muslim is something that is forbidden whenever
we also learn from this either a person who does confer with a man and he claims to be a believer, but he opposes what Allah has declared a paladin heroine, then his good deeds are going to be wasted, because the sin that he's committed
and in these verses we have learned clearly about what is Hillel. What is how long and if a person does not care about what is halal, what is haram and he just follows his desires. He just wants to satisfy his taste buds. Then in that case, what is he doing?
Well maniac for being a man
because Allah has clearly distinguish between what is halal, what is how long if a person does not care?
Then what is it? It's going against the commands.
We learned in the previous Iota lead to no common Islam, Medina, this is what Allah subhanaw taala approves of. So if a person invents his own way, or rejects the commands of Allah doesn't care about them. His actions are not acceptable. They're not approved at all.
And as a result of it, it's going to waste his good deeds.
Now, as for the food, of the people of the book,
The scholars, they agree unanimously, there is Mr. Maher, you unanimously they agree that it is permissible to eat the meat of the People of the Book, and where the people of the book the Jews and the Christians,
provided the two conditions are met.
Two conditions are met. What are the
first of all, that the name of Allah is mentioned at the time of slaughter?
So if you hire a Jew, you hire a Christian to be a butcher. Perfectly fine, as long as he says Bismillah at the time of slaughter, perfectly fine.
What's the evidence for that that Bismillah has to be pronounced with an Iowan 21 Valletta kurumi. Mme youth charisma Maharani don't eat of that on which allows name has not been mentioned.
So if there is a Christian or a Jew,
and he slaughter is an animal, and at the time of slaughter, he mentioned the name of his aid, or he mentioned the name of Rhys artists. And then is that permissible?
If you mentioned the name of mme, or he mentioned the name of God, is that permissible? It's not permissible.
Because the general meaning of the IOM as we let the lady leg up.
So if somebody else's name has been mentioned, or nobody's name is mentioned, that is what not Allah.
So Allah name must be pronounced.
Now, there's some people who say that it is enough to say Bismillah when eating?
Have you heard that? You just say Bismillah when you're eating?
But don't you say this minute when you eat anything?
Of course you do. It's not just when you want to make something. Hello. And if that was the case, that you'd pick up anything and when you're eating, say, Bismillah, the hint of why care about all these rules that Allah has given?
What's the big first and what's the big deal? I mean, life would be so much easier. If the simple command was given, eat whatever you want, just say Bismillah before and you're saying Bismillah is going to make that food Hello.
This is incorrect. To say that just when you're eating, you say Bismillah it's going to make it Hello.
This is against the Quran and Sunnah. Because otherwise there was no need to give all of this data.
What's their evidence?
Let's look at the other side as well. What's your evidence?
The evidence at the present is the Hadees
which is reported in behati.
In which the Sahaba set that O Messenger of Allah,
some people who are new in Islam,
some people who are new in Islam, brought us some meat. And we do not know whether they mentioned the name of Allah COVID are not.
They're Muslim. And we don't know if they mentioned the name of Allah or not. Why?
Because you're new Muslims. It's possible. They have
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, say the name of Allah over it and eat it.
So because of this Hadees, they say eat whatever you want to say Bismillah over.
But the fact is that this command should be understood as meaning that a person should be on the safe side, the meat is coming from the Muslim. And you have a good assumption about him that he is going to say Bismillah, but you're unsure.
So at that time, you're not going to ask him that? Did you say Bismillah? Did you slaughter it properly,
you're not going to interrogate him,
you're going to take the meat that he's giving you. And just to be on the safe side, you are going to, say Bismillah.
And the fact is that, you know, that the meat was slaughtered properly.
You're sure about it, the meat was slaughtered properly. And just because you're not 100% confident. That's why the prophets that a lot of them said, say Bismillah
that the correct interpretation of this Hadees is that it has been said that if a Muslim or a Jewish or Christian person, slaughter is an animal for meat. And it is not known whether he mentioned the name of Allah over it or not.
I can know for sure that a Muslim slaughtered you go to a halal meat store and you buy meat from there.
But you just have this like, What if he forgot to say Bismillah?
It doesn't just have this doubt. Don't you have that doubt? Why don't you forgot to save this minute? Why don't you didn't say.
So this is why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, say Bismillah. But you know that he did slaughter the property.
You just a bit doubtful in your heart.
Now, if you go to a restaurant, and you know that they're not getting it from a Hillel place, you know that this meat is coming from a normal store from a normal butcher house,
where you're not even sure if it's going to be a Muslim or an atheist or a Buddhist.
Then in that case, I'm just going to say this, when I make that foothold, I know
there's more chances of it being harmed than Hello.
mean really how many places over here follow the correct rules they don't.
So you can't just generalize and assume you're going to follow that which you are more sure about.
And when it comes to Christians, we know that they don't pronounce the name of Allah in any way whatsoever.
Nor do they follow the correct method of slaughtering the animal.
Today, neither do they pronounce the name of Allah, nor do they follow the correct method of slaughtering the animal.
But as for the Jews, they're extremely strict.
There's a particular name, which is Shahid, har[???]a, or something like that, which is the ritual slaughter of mammals and birds, according to Jewish law.
And it is said that a blessing to God is recited before beginning an uninterrupted period of slaughtering as long as the person who is slaughtering does not have a lengthy pause.
Then in that case, he will pronounce the blessing at the beginning. And what is it that he says? Blessed are you Oh God, who commanded us regarding such and such?
bless it, are you Oh god, what is it
with chorus mala here I need, the name of Allah has been mentioned.
So they say bless it, are you God, who commanded us regarding such and such.
So, in this case, they are pronouncing the name of a lot and their method of slaughter is also just like ours. In fact, they're more strict about it,
that they're not just concerned about cutting one part, which will cause the blood to flow out, but they're concerned about cutting a specific way and cutting a particular depth so that the blood comes out completely and fully.
So, if you look at it, the Jewish slaughter that is most closest to ours, it meets our requirements, the two requirements of first of all Bismillah and secondly, the correct slaughter.
Therefore, it is permissible, it would be permissible to eat off kosher meat as long as you are 100% sure that it is kosher.
Don't just walk into a restaurant that is Jewish, and you just assume that the meat over there is kosher and you eat it.
It happened with some people that I know that they walked into a restaurant and it's Jewish.
Everybody's Jewish over there. And somebody just asked them by chances your meat kosher and they said no
said no, it's not kosher. So don't just assume,
always make sure that it's kosher. It's kosher certified, if it's kosher certified, go ahead and eat it happily.
So this is the first condition that the name of Allah must be pronounced.
And the second condition is that the meat should be slaughtered in the manner prescribed by the Sharia.
If it is known that the slaughter was not done in the proper Islamic manner, then in that case, it would be held on
because you know for sure that the animal is not slaughtered properly, by for example, you know that the animal was strangled, or it was definitely shocked and killed, and much after it was slaughtered and cut down into pieces that in that case, you know, for sure it's not Hello. So, in that case, you're not going to eat it.
So, what are the two conditions?
Name of Allah and secondly, proper method
to have an earth I mean, he said, it is not essential to ask about that which was slaughtered by a Muslim, or a kitabi. And how it was slaughtered. And whether the name of Allah was mentioned over it or not. Meaning a person should not ask every single Muslim and every single Jew, meaning if they're saying that this is kosher, accepted, if they're saying this is hella accepted,
don't interrogate them, because that is being obstinate in religious matters. And we see that the prophet SAW a lot of sudden he ate meat slaughtered by the Jews, and he did not ask questions.
Why did he accept their meat? Because he knew that they pronounce the name of Allah, and that they slaughter it properly.
So in that case, go ahead and take it.
But if you know for sure you're 100%? Sure. They haven't slaughtered it properly. There's no way they've mentioned the name of Allah,
then you're not going to take it.
Even if a Muslim is offering that to you.
Isn't it amazing that food and marriage are both mentioned together?
People are so picky about the spouse that they choose.
When it comes to food, we become so careless and negligent and easygoing. So okay, no big deal. Maybe it is Helen.
Maybe the novela was pronounced on it. Maybe it was a Christian who slaughtered it.
You don't know for sure.
And you're just going to put it in your mouth.
Be very careful about what goes inside your mouth.
If you look at it, food and fulfilment of sexual desires, it is of the basic desires of a human being. And both of them have to be the you both of them have to be good.
Okay, someone who is not from the people of the book, they offer you halal meat.
If you know that it's hella.
Let's say they buy it from a Muslim.
In that case, you take it because they didn't slaughter it themselves.
They just bought it from the store. And they gave it to you or the body from the store and they cooked it according to your dietary restrictions and they offer it to you it is permissible.
Anything else before we end?
If a Muslim man marries a Christian or Jewish woman, does she inherit from him? No, because remember, to be an air, you have to be a Muslim.
And to be the disease's whose estate is going to be distributed even he has to be a Muslim
