00:00:07--> 00:00:09

Yeah, you are loving amanu

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

Leatherhead remota Uberti mahalo mahalo calm while at Arthur do in the mall Hello Hubble Martin.

00:00:19--> 00:00:31

All you have believed, do not prohibit the good things which Allah has made lawful to you and do not transgress. Indeed a lot does not like the transgressors

00:00:33--> 00:01:00

or believers, latter had you to help the most vulnerable veterans held army, from the word How long? And how long is that which is unlawful? The haleem is to make something unlawful. The dream is to make something unlawful to make something sacred, to make something inviolable. Do you understand because the home is not just to make something home this like muscle home, what does it mean?

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

sacred. So the aim is to make something unlawful and also to make something sacred.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

Over here, the aim is to make something unlawful.

00:01:14--> 00:01:19

So letterhead removed, do not make unlawful do not prohibit

00:01:21--> 00:01:38

do not make unlawful what. But you Betty the good things. Mehanna law hula calm which Allah has made lawful for you, meaning do not make unlawful their consumption, their usage because Allah has made it lawful for you.

00:01:40--> 00:01:51

Now, when it comes to making something Haram, of what Allah has made lawful, it could be of one of three types.

00:01:52--> 00:01:58

So basically, there are three types of doing the theme of what Allah has made Helen,

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

of making unlawful, what Allah has made love.

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

First of all, Hubbard, what does hover mean to inform. So for example, a person says, you know, lentils, their harem,

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

or a person says, all vegetables are how long?

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

Or a person says drinking water is how long?

00:02:20--> 00:02:24

Or a person says eating camel meat is how long?

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

Now if a person says this, he's saying it only.

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

But this information, what is it? This is false, this is untrue.

00:02:36--> 00:03:04

But for example, a person who doesn't know much about Islam, and somebody tells him you cannot have meat, meat is unlawful completely. Is he making something halal haram? Yes, he doesn't have the power to implement that on the other to force the other two practices. However, he is informing of something to be held on, whereas actually it is halon. He is informing of something to be held on, whereas actually it is Hillel.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

So first of all, Hubbard

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

that somebody asks you, is this ingredient Hello?

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

And he's like, No, no, no, this is how

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

I mean, what does that you know, for sure, it's Hello. And the other is that you know that it's not how long should I go? This is how long. So this is

00:03:24--> 00:03:40

the second type of the cream is of inertia. And what does that mean? That a person makes how long a person declares, and he makes it how long that which Allah has made lawful. So basically, he is giving a hookup

00:03:42--> 00:03:55

he is giving a hokum, he is passing a law that such and such is forbidden, whereas Allah has allowed it. How is it different from the first one, the first one is that you're just informing someone somebody asks you casually is hard to like know it's hard on.

00:03:57--> 00:04:15

But the second type in chat is to pass a law that this food, this particular animal, this particular vegetable, this particular fruit, this particular ingredient, this is a law, that this is how long like for example, the people of Mecca, they had made certain and it will tell them

00:04:16--> 00:04:41

we haven't done that varietal and cyber. However, inshallah, we will read about them very soon, that, for example, if there was an animal, for example, she gambled, that gave birth to a certain number of male camels or female camels, something like that. Then on the birth of the 10th, that's it. She was made sacred. And nobody was going to touch it. Nobody's going to drink its milk. Nobody's going to use it for anything. It was just dedicated to the gods.

00:04:42--> 00:04:48

Now that camel is actually Hello. But it has been declared as how long

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

a law has been passed. That this is how long

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

so for example, you can imagine in a Muslim community, the leader, he says nobody's having fish.

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

Nobody's having seafood harem.

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

So what is this,

00:05:06--> 00:05:16

declaring something to be hard on passing a law that it is held on? So basically it is to give a hookup that contradicts the hookup of a loss of data.

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

And the third type of name is empty. Now,

00:05:20--> 00:05:29

what does that mean? That a person makes an art of existence meaning he swears that he will stay away from something

00:05:31--> 00:06:00

that a person swears that he will stay away from something like for example, the person saying I have made soda Holloman myself, I swear I'm never going to have soda again. This is what the dream of something that is lawful. It may be very unhealthy. Okay? It may not be good for you. But you're just saying I swear I'm never gonna have it. I swear by Allah, you swear an oath, that I'm never going to have meat. I'm never going to have fish. I'm going to become a vegetarian, for example.

00:06:01--> 00:06:10

And the prophets are a lot of them. He was told Lima to help remove Mahanama Why do you make unlawful what Allah has made lawful for you?

00:06:11--> 00:06:32

So there are three types of the heading. One is a hub of seconds of in chat and third is of internet. One is to inform something lawful as unlawful. Second, is to declare meaning to make it unlawful to pass a law that is unlawful. And third is that a person just swears that he is going to stay away from it?

00:06:33--> 00:06:40

Over here, when Allah says lead to how to remove do not make unlawful? What does it apply to? Which to him is this.

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

The second type in particular,

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

the second type in particular,

00:06:47--> 00:07:00

the first and third are also applicable. However, mainly, it's the second time that don't make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you while at Arthur do and do not commit transgression?

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

What does he mean by this transgression? Let Arthur do

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

meaning do not transgress the commands of Allah.

00:07:13--> 00:07:32

When Allah has given you some Hadoop, when Allah has given you some commands, don't transgress them, don't violate them. Don't alter them. Don't go against them by declaring something Hillel to be haram and by declaring something, how long do we have a letter to do?

00:07:33--> 00:07:40

You must stay within your bounds. Why? Because you are a servant. You're not the lawmaker. Allah is a lawmaker.

00:07:41--> 00:07:47

So you have to stay within your bounds stay within the boundaries that Allah has set for you.

00:07:48--> 00:07:56

And secondly, it has been said let artha do do not transgress meaning do not exceed enjoying the flavor.

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

Do not exceed in consuming in using the playback. Like for example the person loves soda.

00:08:05--> 00:08:29

And okay, we're not talking about whether it's healthy or not. He says this is lawful and he has with with each meal he has like two cans. Now what is this, exceeding the bounds in using that which is halaal even. So let Arthur do don't commit excess in enjoying the halon enjoying the latter?

00:08:30--> 00:08:37

in Allah Allah you have been martyred in because Allah does not like those people who transgress against to

00:08:38--> 00:08:43

against a law against themselves against other people.

00:08:44--> 00:08:50

Because remember, a person can commit transgression against Allah by going against his commands

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

against himself by depriving himself afraid or by inflicting harm on himself

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

and against people by harming them

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

while kulu and instead, all of you eat

00:09:08--> 00:09:15

collusion, newsletters Hamza kathlyn, eat mementos of a qumola who have what Allah has provided for you.

00:09:17--> 00:09:23

But there is a condition because Mima gives a sense of everything, eat everything that Allah has given you.

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

But there is a condition

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

as long as it is halal and and

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

as long as it is lawful. And it is also good.

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

What does Halloween mean? That it is Halloween fiza T and

00:09:40--> 00:09:40

V.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

That in and of itself, that particular food item is lawful.

00:09:47--> 00:09:56

It's not for instance, pork or for instance, alcohol or the meat of an animal that was not slaughtered correctly

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

and secondly,

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

What does that mean? That it should be earned through halal means as well

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

that a person did not steal it, that a person did not use haram money to buy that food.

00:10:13--> 00:10:20

So, as long as that food is halal and meaning Hillel Fie that the v and v cross v,

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

and it should also be,

00:10:23--> 00:10:29

it should also be good, it should be clean, it should be wholesome, it should be nutritious, it should be tasty.

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

It should be good, it should be beneficial for you It should be healthy food.

00:10:36--> 00:10:46

So, welcome Mr. Masako lohardagan forgiver what the cola lady anthem behaved with me noon and fear Allah, the one whom you believe

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

you believe in him, that he is your Lord. So fear him, you believe in him that he is the one who has given these commands to you. So fear him concerning these commands that He has given you.

00:10:57--> 00:11:07

Notice over here, that a loss of parents artists kulu This is a command. And you remember that every time that there is a command that is given in the Quran,

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

it can be taken in a different degree.

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

Like for example, sometimes there is a command which gives a sense of permissibility.

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

For instance, we learned earlier in South America,

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

that when you have taken off your

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

first thought, then hunt

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

doesn't mean that it is an obligation to hunt.

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

What does it mean?

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

You're allowed?

00:11:34--> 00:11:39

So, one type of command is off permissibility

00:11:41--> 00:11:53

another type of command is off, would you have obligation? Like for example, we learned earlier that when you intend to go to pray, then what should you do?

00:11:54--> 00:12:04

fancy Lu, would you fancy to wash? What is that command? Meaning it's an obligation on you that you have to perform will do before Salah.

00:12:05--> 00:12:13

Without without your soul is not acceptable? If you cannot find water, then what are you going to do? diamo There is also command. What does that mean? It's wider.

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

So one command is our permissibility another command is of obligation.

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

And another command is off is

00:12:23--> 00:12:29

what does this tell me that it is preferable if you do such and such.

00:12:30--> 00:12:40

Like, for example, we learned earlier in the context of returning the orphans money to him, that when you return the orphans money to the orphan,

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

then at that time call witnesses,

00:12:43--> 00:12:59

call witnesses, call witnesses at that moment. But we learned over there that calling witnesses at that time. This is an hour of his day about meaning it's preferable that a person calls witnesses at that time.

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

It's not mandatory, but rather it is preferable.

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

So over here, where Allah says what kulu what type of command is this?

00:13:10--> 00:13:13

I hear obligation that I hear from miscibility.

00:13:14--> 00:13:20

Then I hear his take Well, why? Because it's all types of commands,

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

depending on the situation of the person.

00:13:25--> 00:13:44

So kulu this command is first of all of would you obligation that is an obligation upon a person to eat in certain situations. It is mandatory upon him he doesn't have a choice. He doesn't have a choice he has to eat. It's an obligation upon him.

00:13:45--> 00:13:50

Just as praying for that as an obligation. Similarly, eating is also an obligation when

00:13:52--> 00:14:08

when a person is at the verge of dying, meaning that a person should eat enough to save himself from that. Because a person who does not eat to save his life is like the one who is committing suicide.

00:14:09--> 00:14:36

We learned earlier let aku unphysical do not kill yourselves. So if a person starves himself to death, then this is as though he is committing suicide. He is going against this command of Allah. So kuno it's an obligation that eat enough to save yourself from death, that you must not starve yourself to death which is why we see that if a person is in such a situation, then eating of the helm is also permissible. Why?

00:14:37--> 00:14:44

Why is eating haram permissible in that situation? Because you are obligated to save your life.

00:14:45--> 00:14:50

This life isn't a minor on you. It's not yours. Remember that?

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

This life isn't a minor on you. This body is an Amana on you.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Just as you would take care of somebody animal if you are keeping them

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

Keeping the animal for some time that just as you would take care of someone's child, if you're babysitting them,

00:15:07--> 00:15:16

or somebody wealth if you're looking after cemetery, this body that you have is an Amana on you and you're obligated to look after it.

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

So kulu This is a command of would you obligation.

00:15:22--> 00:15:29

Secondly, this is a command of is the hubbub of preference, that a person should eat enough to have energy

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

enough that he will not fall sick

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

enough that he will be able to do something.

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

Like for example, sometimes people, they don't eat enough.

00:15:42--> 00:15:58

And what happens they eat very little. And after two, three hours, they become very sleepy, they get very tired, they get very lethargic, they don't have the energy. They run out of brainpower, physical power, and they want to eat again.

00:16:00--> 00:16:07

Similarly, sometimes people that eat a very small portion, and after two hours again, they're eating another two hours again, they're eating so the whole day goes in what

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

eating, attacking, eating and snacking.

00:16:11--> 00:16:21

I mean, eat good ones. I'm not saying that eat a lot, but eat a good amount once that's enough to give you energy so that you can do something

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

and you're not lying in bed the whole time, or you're not sleeping and falling asleep the whole time.

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

And thirdly, this ama this command is also have a bit of permissibility

00:16:34--> 00:16:49

that when you want to eat, don't say that Oh, just because I had my lunch, like just 15 minutes ago, therefore I'm not going to have this piece of fruit, or I'm not going to have a glass of water. No, you are allowed to drink it you're allowed to eat that dessert, you're allowed to eat that candy.

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

So it is also off permissibility

00:16:54--> 00:17:01

So welcome to me, my Rosa Kamala, who had Ellen pie even with the cola lady and to begin with me. What do we learn from these two?

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

First of all, we learn about the prohibition

00:17:06--> 00:17:10

of making unlawful what Allah has made lawful.

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

Allah alone is the lawmaker.

00:17:15--> 00:17:23

When it comes to the matters of halal and haram, this authority belongs only to a loss of penalty, even the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not given this authority.

00:17:24--> 00:17:28

When he made something parallel how long upon himself, he was told not to do that.

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

Because Allah alone makes that which is Helen, and he declares that which is how

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

so we are prohibited from making unlawful what Allah has made lawful,

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

sometimes out of piety, out of righteousness, people, they stay away from eating, they stay away from drinking, they stay away from adorning themselves.

00:17:52--> 00:18:06

What does Allah say? In total Allah is 32. All men have Rama Zina de la isla de la Betty. What does it mean office? Alia Latina Ave filha to dunya Holly SATA neoman piano,

00:18:08--> 00:18:17

see who has forbidden the Xena the beauty, the adornment of Allah, which he has produced for his servants,

00:18:18--> 00:18:29

meaning Xena, for instance, good clothes that a person wears or that a woman adorns herself This is what Zina and this is from Allah subhanaw taala. So who has made this unlawful?

00:18:31--> 00:18:37

Allah has not made it unlawful. So who are you to make it unlawful? Because Allah has produced it for his servants?

00:18:38--> 00:18:51

What are you back and the good lawful things of provision say that they are for those people who believe during the worldly life and exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection.

00:18:53--> 00:19:10

So sometimes we think that if we are good believers and we should stay away from eating, then we should stay away from dressing up. We should stay away from looking nice. I'm not talking about committing excess in eating, committing excess in dressing up. That's it's rough. That's another story which we will discuss about.

00:19:11--> 00:19:15

Over here the focus is on staying away from them out of piety,

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

staying away from them out of so called piety. This is something that is forbidden.

00:19:23--> 00:19:42

Similarly, Allah Subhana Allah has and sort of the natural Ayah 116 as well as the who truly matters if you elsina to commune Khadija halala had the hat on the tester or the lightning caddy. And do not say about what your tongues assertive untruth, that this is lawful. And this is unlawful to England faulted about of law.

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

So if a person declares something to be lawful, whereas actually it is unlawful, or vice versa. Then what is he saying?

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

ally against Allah.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

There's a hadith in Bukhari and Muslim in which I should have been on has said that some companions they asked the wives the Prophet Solomon

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

isn't about the acts of worship that he performed in private.

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

So one of them said, I will not eat meat.

00:20:06--> 00:20:11

And other said, I will not marry women. And the third set, I will not sleep on the bed

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

right out of righteousness.

00:20:16--> 00:20:22

When the prophet SAW a lot of sin and hurt the statement, he said, What is the matter with some people who said such and such,

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

I fast, and I also break the fast, meaning I fast some days, and some days I don't keep fast.

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

I sleep and I also wake up to stand to pray.

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

I eat meat, and I also marry.

00:20:41--> 00:20:46

He who is not pleased with my son is not of me.

00:20:47--> 00:20:51

From an early barn, so nutty, filet salmon me.

00:20:52--> 00:20:57

So, we do not have the right to make something Hillel how long

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

or to make something how long how long.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

But remember that there are two types of the heading.

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

One is the theme shuttering

00:21:09--> 00:21:18

and the other is the honeymoon quality? What does it mean by that the honeymoon shutter is when something is declared unlawful in the law that Allah Allah has given like, for example,

00:21:19--> 00:21:24

alcohol or pork or a dead animal.

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

This is what the name Sheree.

00:21:28--> 00:21:45

Allah has declared it unlawful. There have been other thing is that, for instance, because of an illness, because of a disease, because of health reasons, a person is not allowed to have certain foods

00:21:46--> 00:21:54

or because of the scarcity of food. That for example, a person has never had rice, because there is no rice where he lives.

00:21:55--> 00:22:16

So in that case, is he making something haram upon himself? No, Allah has made it hard on him how that in his decree, there is no rice. Okay. So because of health reasons, because of certain reasons, legitimate reasons, if a person has to stay away from a particular food,

00:22:17--> 00:22:19

then in that case, again, it's not in his hand,

00:22:20--> 00:22:27

you're in this is not in your hand, your diseases, not in your hand, your energy is not in your hand.

00:22:28--> 00:22:37

Similarly, the place where you live the food that that place grows, that's not in your hand. So the ham shuttering and the ham Quadri, both are in the hands of Allah.

00:22:38--> 00:22:45

So if, for health reasons, the person stays away from some food, it is permissible.

00:22:46--> 00:22:53

Okay, if for health reasons, a person stays away from some food, it is permissible. But a person should not go to extremes.

00:22:54--> 00:22:57

For example, if really a person has an allergy,

00:22:58--> 00:23:03

and he knows that if he has a particular food, it's really gonna make him sick, he should stay away from it.

00:23:05--> 00:23:09

And if he has it, and it's harmful for him, it's his fault, and he will be held accountable for that.

00:23:11--> 00:23:20

But if let's say a person is just trying to lose weight, and in that process is he or she rather, is not eating properly at all, and she's going pale.

00:23:21--> 00:23:30

And her iron is going really low. Her bones are becoming very weak, because she's trying to lose weight. And in that case, what is she doing?

00:23:32--> 00:23:35

Instead of benefiting herself, she's actually harming herself.

00:23:36--> 00:23:45

Remember, just a tip that the best way of keeping fit is what? Eating healthy and exercise.

00:23:46--> 00:23:52

If you don't eat and you starve yourself, it's possible that you will gain more weight. Remember that?

00:23:53--> 00:24:00

Secondly, we learn from this ayah that in our Deen there is no concept of monasticism.

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

What is monasticism?

00:24:05--> 00:24:15

That out of extreme piety out of extreme righteousness, a person leaves good food. A person does not eat much.

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

A person does not enjoy the comfort of this life. Why out of extreme piety out of monasticism,

00:24:25--> 00:24:29

if you notice in the previous ayah through bandwidth mentioned who is the lucky

00:24:30--> 00:24:31

one believes that the near

00:24:32--> 00:24:45

its luxuries its comforts and he focuses only on the worship of Allah. He doesn't socialize. He doesn't eat or drink much. He doesn't eat the good foods. He eats the most basic and simple foods.

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

But this is not a part of our team.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

What are bernita if the ruha that they invented it.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

So monasticism

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

is an innovation it's not a part of our Deen

00:25:05--> 00:25:09

then we also learn from this ayah that moderation

00:25:10--> 00:25:28

should be in consuming and enjoying the halaal even because Allah subhanaw taala says netherton do not commit transgression. Even when you are enjoying the Hello, welcome to wash Robbo wha 234. Eat and drink, and do not commit as well.

00:25:29--> 00:25:36

Because we have a tendency of going to extremes. Either we say that I'm so righteous that I'm not going to have meat again.

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

I'm so kind, I'll become a vegetarian.

00:25:41--> 00:25:45

Or we go to another extreme. They're like, no, this is awful. This is awful.

00:25:46--> 00:25:52

And so eat as much as you want, eat all you can, even if it means you're going to be stuffed up and you're going to feel sick for the next day.

00:25:54--> 00:25:59

So we have a tendency of going to extremes, our Deen is of moderation.

00:26:00--> 00:26:04

So even when we are enjoying the holiday, we should stay within limits.

00:26:05--> 00:26:08

Then we also learn from the side about the prohibition of earth when

00:26:09--> 00:26:16

why because Allah does not like those people who commit transgression, whether it isn't a heck of a lot, or it isn't a heck of people.

00:26:18--> 00:26:31

This indicates that the hareem making something unlawful, which Allah has made lawful, making something hard on which Allah has made Helen, what is that transgression?

00:26:32--> 00:26:46

Who is it a transgression against? First of all, against a loss of time that Allah has given you a certain law, you're not accepting it, you're exceeding the bounds. You're not staying within your limits, you're trying to go to the level of the lawmaker.

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

Secondly, it's a transgression against people.

00:26:51--> 00:26:59

If you're forcing people, if you're telling them that a particular food that is halal is haram, aren't you going to make their life difficult for them?

00:27:01--> 00:27:01

Aren't you,

00:27:03--> 00:27:09

you're going to make their life extremely difficult for them. When you declare something halaal to be held on.

00:27:10--> 00:27:39

For example, some people when it comes to sub ingredients of a particular food of different foods, we know that because if chemical change, if something was initially an unlawful product, even like for example, if it was alcohol, or if it was meat or something, but because of a chemical change, it doesn't remain the same, then it is lawful to consume it. Why? Because it's gone through a chemical change, it does not remain the same anymore.

00:27:41--> 00:27:48

I'm not talking about every sub ingredient, there are some ingredients that are like that. Other Ingredients are not like that. So don't generalize my statement.

00:27:50--> 00:28:00

Like for example, I'll just give you an example that is coated in a lot, that if there's a big and it goes into a salt minor dyes over there, it's going to turn into salt. Correct,

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

it's going to turn into salt, or you're not going to consume that salt.

00:28:05--> 00:28:19

Of course you are, it's turned into salt, it's undergone a chemical change. It's not the same anymore, you cannot reverse it back to being a big, you cannot do that. It has lost its properties completely.

00:28:21--> 00:28:37

So some people, they're so strict about certain ingredients, that they will go to an extreme. Just because this product once upon a time before many chemical changes that it underwent, it was that product once upon a time.

00:28:38--> 00:28:42

Therefore this product is how long this particular food is held.

00:28:43--> 00:28:49

And because of that they have made their lives difficult. They have made the lives of their families so difficult.

00:28:50--> 00:28:55

especially children, they become so upset that you say everything is Hello.

00:28:56--> 00:29:07

I remember initially when I came to Canada, I was like that as well. That everything is you know, you read everything and if anything has those ingredients, it's Hello.

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

And my younger brother, he would never go for groceries with me.

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

Never. Because he's like she's gonna say everything is horrible.

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

So what happens when people go to extremes?

00:29:20--> 00:29:39

Over here, we're being taught that when a person makes something halal Haram, he is committing transgression against a law against people against a law. He's trying to be a lawmaker against people, he's making their life difficult for them.

00:29:40--> 00:29:49

Now, I'm not saying don't care about some ingredients. Definitely care about them. Definitely. But learn about them before you pass judgments.

00:29:50--> 00:29:55

Earlier we read about the data that Yeah, I don't get that letter roofie the unicorn viral.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

So this will know if they were prohibited from it either.

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

We are prohibited from it.

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

Because when we do, who looked at what happens, it turns people away from it.

00:30:06--> 00:30:29

So basically what I'm trying to say over here is that learn about these things. And then follow those things. If you don't know much about them, just because you heard, just because someone said, Don't follow everything, educate yourself, or trust someone who is more knowledgeable than you.

00:30:31--> 00:30:51

If there's something that you don't know of, that you don't know about, then in that case, you research you check, you find out, there's always a number or you call them up, and you ask you find out. But don't unnecessarily say that, Oh, this is how long this is definitely hold on. This is how long everything is handled.

00:30:53--> 00:30:59

Because when you do that, this is transgression against yourself against a lot as well as against other people.

00:31:01--> 00:31:07

Then we also know from this I bought the favor of Allah subhanaw taala to his servants that he has made like you bet lawful for them.

00:31:08--> 00:31:23

That this is a huge favor of Allah, that he has made good things lawful for us. If you wanted he could have made like you bet good things unlawful for us, like he did for the bunny is what you as a punishment for some of their crimes.

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

Just imagine if eating meat was unlawful

00:31:30--> 00:31:39

because some people think that in being a vegetarian and being vegan, you're being very nice, you're being very kind. Just imagine if meat was unlawful.

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

It would be so difficult to live, it would be so difficult to eat. Sometimes you wonder what are you going to eat.

00:31:47--> 00:31:49

And every time some meat comes into your head,

00:31:50--> 00:31:58

some idea of cooking some meat comes into your mind. So we learned about the favor of a loss of penalty at the mercy of Allah to his servants that he has made the best offer for them.

00:32:00--> 00:32:10

We also learned that if Allah Subhana Allah does not like his love, because he says in the law, your horrible mortality. If he does not like his refer to that transgression, then what does he like?

00:32:11--> 00:32:12

moderation.

00:32:14--> 00:32:18

If Allah does not like transgression, what does he like moderation, then what is moderation?

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

What is moderation?

00:32:22--> 00:32:30

moderation is staying within the limits, eating only that which Allah has made permissible

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

and not eating that which Allah has made huddle.

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

This is what moderation is.

00:32:38--> 00:32:47

But remember moderation that are to do. Another meaning was that do not commit excess in enjoying the holidays.

00:32:49--> 00:32:58

So sometimes what happens that we know that this is highlighted this particular food is holiday and we eat it, and we eat too much. And then we harm ourselves

00:32:59--> 00:33:03

or our mind, our heart is constantly attached to that particular thing.

00:33:04--> 00:33:11

Because it is permissible until we want to eat it. For example, somebody loves to have desserts with every meal, they have to have a dessert.

00:33:12--> 00:33:22

So what is moderation that the body uses the material things of this life, but the heart is not attached to them. The heart is not attached to them.

00:33:23--> 00:33:32

Because of the heart is attached to these things, then what's going to happen? You're going to be thinking about grocery you're going to be thinking about cooking, you're going to be thinking about eating

00:33:33--> 00:33:40

and your whole time goes into what does food, food, food. That's it.

00:33:41--> 00:33:47

So what is moderation, that the body uses the material things, but the heart is not attached to that.

00:33:49--> 00:33:54

Similarly, we learn from the side but the obligation of eating what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded?

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

Because Allah says what could you eat?

00:33:58--> 00:34:02

So it's an obligation to eat of that which Allah Subhana Allah has commanded.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

Remember, there is no piety in being a vegetarian.

00:34:09--> 00:34:14

There is no piety. There is no bite in being dairy free, unless if you have a dairy allergy.

00:34:15--> 00:34:24

And there is no piety in not eating for your food out of 10. So what is that so that I am to above this food?

00:34:26--> 00:34:37

I, for example, some food it's perfectly fine. But just because it wasn't the refrigerator overnight. Some people are like, I'm not gonna touch it and I may eat it. It's perfectly fine.

00:34:38--> 00:34:44

Or just because it was in the freezer. Like I don't have food that goes in the freezer.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

Unless if it really affects a person in their health. That's a different case. But this is it's tough because then you're wasting food and you're spending too much time in. Let's say cooking and preparing and eating and all of that.

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

So there is no piety in being like this and not eating pipe out of kindness that I am do about this.

00:35:10--> 00:35:17

Some people, they only like meat for themselves. They don't like chicken or they don't like vegetables.

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

Or some people, they will only have bread and they will never have rice and buy bread I mean roti. So, this is what, this is also another type of extreme. When Allah subhanaw taala has said each other to you,

00:35:34--> 00:35:44

then is it really going to reduce your status? If you eat food that is just one day old? Is it going to reduce your status? If you have rice one day instead of having bread?

00:35:45--> 00:35:50

Is it going to reduce your status? If you don't have meat one day? No, it's not going to reduce your status.

00:35:51--> 00:36:00

Similarly, there is no piety in not eating something out of water. What is what are extreme piety

00:36:01--> 00:36:14

that, out of my extreme piety, I'm going to stay away from this processed food, I'm going to stay away from this ingredient, I'm going to stay away from the food that let's say the non Muslims sell. There is no biting that

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

there is no biting that remember that.

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

I for example, sometimes people will not buy from a non Muslim,

00:36:22--> 00:36:46

even if he's selling food that is halal. Why? That I want to make sure that the food that he's giving is 100%. Healthy, while he's showing you that it's rare that it's certified Hello, there is no biotene avoiding that. Because Allah said eat it. If the food is halal in itself, and your earning is halal, it is lawful for you. There is no piety. In staying away from it. The prophet SAW The Lord is an eight by you food.

00:36:48--> 00:36:58

He was not that picky. If he didn't like something, if it was not something that he enjoyed eating, he would just stay away from it. But he wouldn't pass negative remarks, negative comments on it.

00:37:00--> 00:37:13

And unfortunately, our behavior is that if we're given a particular food to eat, and we don't like it, we don't like the way it looks, or we don't like the way it smelled or the way it tastes. We say such bad things about that food that even other people don't want to eat it.

00:37:14--> 00:37:22

So this is in gratitude, in gratitude, it's not piety, in gratitude, and it's arrogance.

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

it contradicts humility.

00:37:26--> 00:37:33

When the mother has been standing for so long, and she's prepared the food and the children, they come to the table and like yuck.

00:37:34--> 00:37:34

Or again.

00:37:36--> 00:37:42

So this is in gratitude. And it's arrogance. Allah does not like in gratitude. He doesn't like arrogance.

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

But again, remember that don't go to another extreme now.

00:37:47--> 00:37:58

moderation is what we need. If there is a particular food, let's say they all food if you eat it, it doesn't suit you. Maybe there are some people who are very sensitive.

00:37:59--> 00:38:07

Similarly frozen food, it doesn't suit you. There are people who are sensitive, then in that case, it's a different situation.

00:38:08--> 00:38:15

Or, for example, there are some people who cannot eat meat. They eat it and they feel it's very heavy for them. They're not used to eating it.

00:38:17--> 00:38:40

If we remember, all those people in the world today, who are hungry, because they don't even have food, they haven't seen food, they haven't had a nice warm meal at their table in years, or maybe they've never had it. If we remember those people and the food that is before us. Even if we don't like it, we will eat it happily. We will eat it happily.

00:38:44--> 00:38:53

Some others, they don't want their children to have a particular candy, a particular snack food. And they tell them it's heroin. Whereas Actually, it's heroin.

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

So what kind of game is this cover?

00:38:58--> 00:39:03

It's a lie. It's a lie. And it's not just any lie. It's a big lie.

00:39:05--> 00:39:29

We see that a loss of hunger loves moderation of a person eats and moderation. He eats food from all food groups, then inshallah His body is going to remain healthy as well. When we don't remain in moderation, then it is that generally we develop diseases and allergies to particular foods. Many times that is a reason because we have not stayed in moderation. So if we stay in moderation from the beginning,

00:39:30--> 00:39:38

then we'll be fine. But sometimes it is also other reasons but moderation is also one of the things that helps a person.

00:39:39--> 00:39:49

People who become vegetarian don't eat meat. They say that we're very compassionate and kind towards the animals well if you're being kind towards the animals and be kind towards plants as well, don't cut them.

00:39:51--> 00:39:55

Because it is said that some plants when they're cut, they actually feel pain,

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

a lower limb but if you're compassionate towards one person

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

Then you should be compassionate towards the rest of the creation as well.

00:40:04--> 00:40:08

Compassion is what Allah Subhana Allah has taught us that in the way that we slaughter them

00:40:09--> 00:40:10

in that we are compassionate.

00:40:14--> 00:40:29

When we learned earlier in total, Bukhara, that Haleakala calm, Matthew ld domian, he has made everything in the earth for you. So these animals, even they have been created for your benefit. If you don't have cows and goats,

00:40:31--> 00:40:38

within a few years, there'll be in your houses, their population is going to grow so quickly, that you will not be able to control them.

00:40:41--> 00:40:52

You are what you eat, if you eat a lot, if you are excessive in your eating, then you're excessive in your other actions as well. And if you're negligent in your eating, and you're negligent, and other aspects of your life as well, there's something very true.

00:40:54--> 00:41:25

Different types of foods are good for people. However, it's the quantity. For example, chocolate is also good for people. But if you have chocolate that is filled with sugar, and fat and a lot of it, then obviously it's not that beneficial for you. If you look at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala, the different types of foods that he has made halaal for us, together, they make a good diet for us. If you leave even one food group, then what's going to happen, it's going to affect your health, you're going to become sick.

00:41:26--> 00:41:40

And we see that sometimes when people have an allergy to particular food, how difficult that is for them to find alternates, and substitutes, it's so difficult for them, and they have to take supplements.

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

So there is a big blessing of Allah subhanaw taala that he has created such a variety, and he has allowed that variety

00:41:49--> 00:42:09

over here, yes, it is, in particular about food, that don't make unlawful the food that Allah has made lawful for you. But it can also be applied to other things as well that are less apparent Allah has provided that don't make the use of something haram which Allah has made halal for you because it leads to transgression against yourself against other people.

00:42:10--> 00:42:15

Like for example, in some cases were having more than one child is forbidden by law.

00:42:16--> 00:42:23

Then we see the complications, the difficulties that they're going through, that in that process, they kill their children.

00:42:24--> 00:42:34

Because it's not a child who they want. They want a boy and if they have a girl, they will kill that girl. If they want a girl and they have a boy, they will kill that boy in that process. They will kill multiple children maybe.

00:42:35--> 00:42:48

So when we make something halal Haram, then we're committing transgression against ourselves and against other people. And a lot does not like those people who commit transgression.

00:42:49--> 00:42:54

Allah likes moderation. And this is why the dean that He has given us is off moderation.

00:42:57--> 00:43:01

If we see, we are generally very particular about eating healthier.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

And because of that reason, we will make Hillel even harder sometimes.

00:43:08--> 00:43:11

Why? Because we're very concerned about putting only the halaal in our mouth.

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

But this teaches us a very important lesson.

00:43:16--> 00:43:24

That if you are so careful about what you put in your mouth, what about what you put in your ears?

00:43:25--> 00:43:30

What about what you put in your ears? what you put in your wallet? Is that highlight as well?

00:43:32--> 00:43:37

The sound that you're listening to the money that's coming in your wallet? Is that Helen?

00:43:38--> 00:44:01

Or is that how long as well, because sometimes out of piety, we're so concerned that everything that we eat must be halal, 100% halal. And if I've even a little bit of doubt, I'm going to leave it. I'm going to declare it to be how I'm not going to let my family even touching go close to it. We're so concerned. But when it comes to listening to how long we're so casual,

00:44:02--> 00:44:07

it's no big deal. When it comes to earnings, it's no big deal.

00:44:08--> 00:44:29

We're only concerned about putting highlight in our mouths but we should be concerned about making our whole life that which are altering color and even the words that come out of our mouth even they should be good words, which is why in the next day we see about the odds that people take the squares that people take that a person should also be careful about them.

00:44:31--> 00:44:32

inshallah, we will learn about that soon.

00:44:49--> 00:44:50

kumala

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

in

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

30
