therefore, fudge Danny boo, Laura, welcome to the home avoided so that you can become successful
as we learned earlier that the prohibition of hummus and mais it
of intoxicants of alcohol came in different stages.
Even even humble he recorded in his Muslim, that overload I don't know he said that there were three stages to prohibit intoxicants three stages.
When the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam migrated to Medina, the people were consuming alcohol and they were also gambling, even the Muslims.
So they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about these things.
As we learned earlier, yes, aluna aka annual hamari will miss it.
So they asked him about Cameron mace it because a person who has a man he knows that this is something that is morally wrong.
He knows that there is no good in hammer and Mason. So although there was no prohibition at that time still they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
said so at that time the iron saluted Bukhara which is 219 was revealed that he has aluna Cardinal harmony well, Mason Kulfi Hema is one kabiru woman effete rootedness that they're sending it, but they're also benefits in it.
So the people said they were not prohibited for us that now they're not held on. Yes, their sin, but it's not held on like we do with so many things.
That Yes, it may be wrong. It may be harmful, but it's not how long.
So they went on drinking cover. Until one day, one of the people who was leading the Sahaba in Salah, He mixed up the ayat in his recitation. So he read the Quran incorrectly. Why? Because he was intoxicated. So therefore Allah subhanaw taala sent down a tougher statement, which was in Surah, Nisa, and number 43.

And then this I was revealed

A loss of parents artist says yeah, are you a Latina Amano
and if you're a believer, then listen to this carefully
and do what you're being told to do in this ayah
that intimate? ultimo one Mason? Indeed the intoxicants and the gambling what is Hummer?
Literally that which covers the intellect.
So Alhambra. muhammara arco.
So basically Alhambra is a musket, meaning every intoxicant
whether it is a drink, or is anything else something that a person smokes, something that a person eats something that a person puts in his mouth or a person smells anything. That is an intoxicant, which covers the intellect overcomes the mind of a person.
What does it do? It overcomes the mind of a person.
Now when a person takes an intoxicant, what's the result of that?
What's the result of that?
When his mind is intoxicated, what's the result of that?
Can you differentiate between good and bad?
They need a friendship between right and wrong.
Can you differentiate between good behavior and bad behavior?
he insults himself. He harms himself. And he also harms other people.
He harms himself. And he also harms other people, which is why they say don't drink and drive. Because in that situation, what is the person doing?
He's harming himself and he's also harming other people.
And a person who is a true believer, he cannot like
he cannot like the fact that his mind is gone, even if it's gone for just a few hours,
because it's as though that part of his life has gone
that part of his life has been killed, that time has been killed and he cannot tolerate that he will not like the idea even

any game in which betting is involved, through which a person acquires some wealth.
So like, for example, people play a game of cards or dice or something like that, in which betting is involved. And whoever wins, what does he earn
So it includes lottery, it includes any kind of game of chance in which there is money involved.
So in Alhambra, while myself
now a person who indulges in common and makes it,
he cannot be a mother,
he cannot be a Morse.
He cannot be a solid.
We are taught the behavior of mercy
that you should be considered about other people.
Be extra nice to them.
But what does gambling mean?
That you take the money of somebody very easily and you're happy about it. You cause harm to someone and you're happy about it. You win. And you're happy about it, and the other person loses. And you're happy about that.
So a person who is involved in Hemet and Mesa he cannot be a true believer.
One unsolved, unsolved is from the roof that was known saw that it's the plural of NASA. And what is it used for?
A stone altar where the machine they would slaughter their animals? Why?
In order to dedicate them for their idols, or as a part of ritual ceremony.
So unsolved, meaning idols or stone altars,
which is a ritual worship
any animal that is slaughtered over there, or slaughtering animals over there?
What else? Well, Islam, Islam as a plural of zulum, or xlm, from the root every day, that meme, which is used for an arrow, which is used for what purpose?
For fortunately, to find out about your fortune,
is to build Islam.
So basically, people would use these arrows in order to determine fate.
So for example, if they weren't sure as to what to do, they had these three arrows. One arrow said, If I'll do it, another said last fall, don't do it. There was empty, didn't say anything.
So if you're not sure, pick out an arrow. If it says Do it, do it. If it says don't do it, don't do it. If it doesn't say anything, you have another chance, you can play again. Try again.
And secondly, as lamb were also those arrows with which they gambled, just as people use dice
or people use cards today,
they use to use arrows.
So all of these four things, what are they they are
religious on their own factories a lot GMC.
And rich is that which is filthy, that which is unclean, and the word reads applies to both physical and intangible filled
physical fields. Like for example, Crissy Field, for example, a lot of parents are the size and so little NRM. 145 color ID to female or here is a Yamaha woman and authority many other armo illa akuna Matan Odom, and must forehand Oklahoma fanzine for in NodeJS
that the only food that I find unlawful is such and such an
Why is it unlawful to eat, because it is unclean, because it is unclean
spirits is used for that which is impure in the physical sense. Secondly, it is also used for that which is impure in the intangible sense
in the modern UI sense.
Like, for example, a lost parent artist hasn't sort of hedge Ira 30 fujitani Buddhism in an ozanne wedge, then he will call a zoo.
So, stay away from the field of the idols doesn't mean that the idols are physically unclean. No, they may be very clean, they may be very fragrant even.
So, what does it mean? It's over there. It doesn't mean they're physically filthy. But what does it mean that there's intangible meaning spiritual impurity over there?
Over here, in the last paragraph, it says that all of these things there are registered. which reads is this
physical or spiritual? spiritual?
spiritual? It's not both. Why?
Because if you look at it hums,
It's used for what?
What is it used for?
Isn't it? Those people who've taken science subjects when you go perform certain experiments? What do you clean your hands with?
What do you clean your hands with?
It's a cleaning agent.
So what it means is that it is spiritually impure.
And remember that alcohol eventually is also turned into vinegar. Okay, which according to some scholars is actually permissible, according to some others say it's not permissible. But some say that it is permissible because now it has changed completely. It's vinegar now.
So alcohol in itself is not something that is physically unclean.
There is no physical impurity in it.
And if you look at Mesa,
if you earn money through myself, you get a whole lot of cash. Is that cash physically filthy? No, it's clean. You know, people they touch it, they feel it? Yes, I got this money. It's clean physically.
seminary. Similarly, when it comes to unsub, the stone altars the idols, aren't they clean physically, they're clean. Similarly, as lamb, the arrows that were used, they were clean, they weren't physically filthy. So what it means by rates over here is that they are hobbies, meaning they're spiritually impure.
All of these they're spiritually impure.
And they are meant to shake on their off the works of Shetland.
What does it mean by this? There are the works of shaytaan doesn't mean that Japan does this. Know, it means there have those actions, which shape on has beautified
those actions, which shape on encourages people to do, which athon commands people to do.
So first of all, they're filthy. Secondly, they're off the works of shape on
fujitani boo hoo, so avoid it, meaning stay away from it, and what does it mean, to stay away from something. So fetch the new boo, first enable from what all these four things that are local to your home, so that you're successful? And what does that mean?
That a person attains that which is desired, he attained his goal, and he is saved from mcru from that which is disliked.
So, avoid all these things, so that you are successful in this life, as well as the ashira
then a lot of parents are says, in the manual either shaytaan indeed, shaitan only once meaning this is what he loves, when he commands you to be involved in these four things, what does he want? What does he like?
And that you pair the income that he puts between you all
you care from the roof as well kaufering What does work army to fall to occur? So you want that this should occur, this should develop between you what that annual Karabiner comala, Ida water, well, Baba. He wants that enmity and hatred should grow in all of you.
This is why he urges you He commands you to be involved in these things. This is why he tempts you to do these things. Because he wants that you should have hatred and enmity for one another. What is our thou opposite of wilaya? That when a person expresses enmity through his words and actions
And what is the opposite of hope that a person's heart is averse to the other.
So shavon won. So there should be enmity and hatred between you all how philharmonie will make it through Hummer and Mesa through intoxicants and gambling.
And if you look at it, when people are involved in these two things, for example, if a person drinks alcohol, he will say such things, or he will do such things which are going to lead to enmity and hatred.
Similarly, sometimes when people are drunk people play pranks on them.
People play really bad pranks on them, because they're drunk, they have no idea what's going on with them.
So they play really bad pranks on them. And as a result, what happens?
It develops hatred, grudges, enmity for one another.
And when it comes to mice, that a person has his money, he takes it, and he plays over there. And what happens? He loses some money, is he going to love the person who took his money?
No, he's going to develop hatred for him. Which is why we see that people, generally, I mean, there's so much security around these areas. Because people have a lot of enmity and hatred for one another.
How through hammer, and mace It
was also the meaning and shaitan also wishes to stop you from what and declare from the remembrance of Allah. This is why he urges you to be involved in these things.
And which they could have a loss apparently is this in the club, in the sand as well as through the jewelry?
That when a person is intoxicated?
Is he going to remember a line his heart? Is he
he cannot even think about himself.
When a person is drunk, he cannot even think straight? How is he going to remember? Is he going to say liquor? Is he? Is he going to say words of liquor? Is he going to say Bismillah? Is he going to say Alhamdulillah? He's not going to do that?
And is he going to pray? No. Is he going to recite the Quran?
Even if he does? So? Is he going to recite a property? No. So this is what shaitan wants, that a part of your life goes waste.
A part of your life goes without the dhikr of Allah.
You see, when we use the washroom, when we use the bathroom? We're not allowed to do the good over there.
But when we leave the bathroom, what do we say?
Because that time was spent without the remembrance of Allah.
This is what she wants from us, that we spend a lot of time of our lives wasting that time, so that we don't do any kind of Allah subhanaw taala. And on the Day of Judgment, that time is a source of great regret.
That same time could have been used doing something much better, much better.
But that same amount of time has gone waste. Why? Because a person was in the state of anger.
He was intoxicated, and hours of his life have been killed
while his father and all of them saw that renisha doesn't want you to pray
So are you going to stop or not?
There is a question. And it's meant as an encouragement as well as a rebuke that are you going to stop or not You better stop. What are you thinking? What are you waiting for? Stop, don't deal with these things at all.
and earn little dinar and who when he heard that, he said into hanaa into hanaa. We have abstained we have abstain meaning we're not going to deal with these things ever again.
This was a reaction of the Sahaba
So over here we see for hell unto monta hoon. This is an encouragement, as well as
a rebuke that you better stop. It's a threat. That if you don't stop, then you're going to suffer consequences.
What do we learn from these if, first of all, we learned about the importance of staying away from these prohibited things from these four prohibited things that are mentioned in these
because the command is with you and you will Idina I'm gonna need that.
Secondly, we learned that staying away from these things is a requirement of a man because Allah mentioned he meant and Latina Amano.
And if a person does not stay away from these things, what does it mean?
That there is a problem with his email.
We also don't from the site about the prohibition of hummus
about the prohibition of hummus
because a lot of parents are dissatisfied with any boo
and tomato. What does it mean?
This is how
if Alice pounder is saying avoid it, what does it mean? This hammer is off? Would you that you have to avoid it. So therefore hammer is haram
and remember that intoxicants are all unlawful
regardless of their type and regardless of their quantity.
So for example, if a person says, Oh no, only alcohol meaning drinking wine, that is Hello. And if you're smoking something that's okay, no,
anything that intoxicates you is haram.
Similarly, whatever quantity
whether it's a lot or it is a miniscule amount, a tiny drop, even then that tiny drop is Hello. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Matt scuttle, Cathedral row for karela who has
the great quantity of which intoxicated person, then the little quantity of it also is Hello.
We also don't know from this is about the prohibition of Mesa gambling, any type of gambling lottery included.
Even that is what held on. Similarly, idols and we also learn from this about the prohibition of sex and Bill Islam, that trying to determine fate, through divining arrows
now doesn't mean that a person can use other means to try to figure out what's going to happen in the future know
if this is head on, what does it mean that any other way that is used to determine fate is also
that is also horrible. So, for example, if a person says because I was born in this particular month, therefore, my What is it called zodiac sign or my horoscope is such and such, therefore, this month such and such is going to happen, or this year, such and such is going to happen.
Or a person says that, oh, the lines on my hand, because they're like this, therefore, such and such is going to happen any way any means of trying to determine fate is Hello.
So, if you go to a person who is very righteous, who is very pious, and they tell you about your future, then going to them is that permissible? That is also not permissible, because nobody knows, like,
nobody knows, like,
and usually such people, either they're lying to make a lot of money.
Because if you tell them that, oh, there is a problem with you, and you have to fix it. What does it mean? That you're supposed to come back to me again and again. Each time you make an appointment with me, you're going to have to pay me money. So it's a way of making money.
And sometimes they use gin
and their shift involved. Remember, if a person takes the help of gin,
he is committing coffee. Why? Because you cannot please the shaitan except by displeasing Allah soprano Darla.
All right. So any other way of trying to determine fate is also not permissible.
Now, sometimes people confuse this with istikhara.
They say oh is the hora is also something like that, then, actually, Sahara is not istikhara. What does it mean? To seek hire?
You're not trying to figure out if what you're doing is good for you or not. Which is why when you do is too hot, it's not necessary that you're going to have a dream.
Or that you have to go to someone who's going to do is to harder for you. No, you do is to hire yourself. Or you can have your mother your close relatives do it for you as well. While you're doing it, and it's the hado you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for him, that Oh Allah, if this is good for me, make it easy for me. If it's not good for me, turn it away from me. You're not trying to determine your fate. So any way of trying to determine Fed is unlawful.
What about those cookies?
Even for fun, even for fun? Yes, they're not true. But even for fun,
because any type of fortune telling
is something that is not permissible and already
Okay, so if they offer you fortune cookies, don't eat it.
And if you really want to eat it, just open it up and don't open that piece of paper. Okay, don't read it even for fun.
And we also learned from this ayah about the fact that if a person gets involved in any of these four things,
Then there's severe warning against him. Why? Because of loss of parents or a call to actions First of all, aerates, impure, unclean, filthy. And he also called an armada shaper.
Now, he's clearly telling us this is something that shape bond is studying you to do. And you're going to become up to shape on.
This is something that shaitaan tells you to do, this is going to shape on, are you going to do it,
saying that Oh, the word Haram is not used in the Quran.
This is something that Chitwan tells you to do. So you're not going to do it.
So there's severe warning against being involved in any of these things.
Then we also learn from these is that if a person stays away from these four things, then you will be successful.
And on the other hand of the country, if a person engages in these four things, then he will not be successful.
Now remember that some people they say, since the word How long has not been used?
There are people who say that,
that in these is the word Harlem has not been used, therefore, it's not Hello.
Yes, we say there's one Kabir there's a lot of sin. However, it's not unlawful.
But if you look at these two,
if you look at these two, if it is more clear, that it is how long
I mean, if the word How long was used, it would not convey the same meaning as the meaning that the words of these two is conveyed.
First of all, if you look at it, yeah, you're letting me know address neither, what does it show the importance? Then, if you look at it,
hung and Mason are mentioned? What else is mentioned along with that? unsought and Islam? So,
alcohol intoxicants have been equated with what?
that just as idol worship is not lawful. Similarly, alcohol is alternate lawful, they belong to the same category.
You're not going to worship an idol, you're not going to sacrifice for an idol. Then how can you have an intoxicant?
then, thirdly, reads, there's 10 feet in this that there's something very repulsive, that there's something dirty, filthy, repulsive, and then it has been described as I want to shake on.
And then Allah subhanaw taala commands each, then he boo, what does it mean? It's a command and this command is off, would you? It's an hour of a job, it's an obligation,
then, it has mentioned that if you want to be successful, then you have to stay away from it. What does it mean, if you don't stay away from it, you will not be successful in the dunya or the Euro?
And what is success that a person has saved from the Hellfire, and he enters into Jenna.
Also, we see that the Mufasa there mentioned, the negative side, the harm is mentioned
that there's our though there's blah, blah, there's something unethical. And then at the end, there's encouragement and threat by asking that, are you willing to stop or not? Like, for example, if your mother is really strict with you, and she's like, don't do this? Like, are you going to stop or no, you're going to stop saying that or not? And if you don't, what does it mean?
There is going to be consequences.
So similarly, a loss of parents art is asking for help. When are you going to stop or not? If you don't, there's going to be consequences. So yes, the word heroin has not been used. However, the way that these ads have been mentioned, they convey very clearly that alcohol is haram.
And the fact that it's a deed of shaitaan, meaning this is a deed that shaitan commands you to do, why? In order to take you to hellfire. And you're going to sit or it's not how long
because the word How long has not been used. I mean, this is more powerful, by saying for hell unto the moon. This is the rich sun, and by mentioning it with idolatry. It's very clear that it is something that is unlawful
