wamena a billy and of the camels, there is a need to remember the eight sets, we learned about eight bears. The two were off button sheep, and the two were off. goats. Now do have an A B, which to the male and the female
woman in Bukhari and of the cows. There are two meaning the male and the female. All at the current diploma, did he forbid? The males, the two males? I mean, are the two females? Did he forbid the males? Or did he forbid the females? No.
I'm out or what? Is there any are Hamill insane? Or what the wounds they comprise? Are they consistent side? No, he didn't forbid the child either. If the male is not haraam, that means the female is not held on and that means the child has also not have them. And if even one of them is held on what does it mean? All of them are home. If Allah has made permissible the male and the female, then definitely the child has also had an
unconfirmed Shahada or were you witnesses it was Sokolov will be However, when Allah ordered you with this will soften that as well. So idea what is
an important instruction. So when you present when Allah was giving you this very important instruction, that don't eat the female, but eat the male, know,
this never happened. So what evidence do you have? You have no evidence, then definitely, you're fabricating you are inventing from an LLM Odin who is more unjust manif Dada Allah He can even then the one who fabricates a lie against Allah by saying that such and such animal is halal and such and such animal is haram. Whereas Allah said something different.
Why is he fabricating alliance of what? Lindland nursery later and so that he misleads people without any knowledge in La Jolla del Carmen volumen. Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing, people who are dividing those who lie those who fabricate those who transgress the limits that Allah subhanaw taala has said,
these ayat, they're primarily talking about the practices of the Michigan.
We learned about some of them the previous is as well. And these are adults I mentioned, because they had considered only the female halaal or only the male Helen. And again, gender discrimination comes from them. If a particular animal is halaal, only for men, it's not helpful for the women. If the male animal is Hello, the female animal is not Hello. So this gender discrimination came from these people.
We learned that I might have been too high. He was a mushrik. And he was the first person to change the religion of Abraham.
Ibrahim escena he established the heat is Marina is our motto believe in the heat and the people after them also they will even though he that's what they practice. That's what they believed.
And we learned that amor even though he was a first person, to designate the sativa, there were sila, and how, because remember, the ham was the male and the SE but and there was sila what were they female.
So he had designated this prohibition of certain meals of certain females. The profits out of artists, Adam said, I saw armor been too high, pulling his intestines behind him in the fire.
And when he was putting his intestines behind him in the fire, why?
Why is such a great punishment because he was the first one to start the practice off the saber.
He was the one who innovated something in the religion, which led people to share,
which led people to harming themselves in their dunya and they're there for such a person ended up in the hellfire.
So what do we learn from Messiah?
First of all, we learned that a person who introduces a false practice, he is a great criminal, a great criminal, who, the one who introduces a false practice in the religion.
It has no basis. It's a complete innovation. And he sets a trend and people follow him in that.
And he's a great criminal because he's leading people astray from the religion of Allah from what Allah has robbed people to do.
And he's also a great criminal. Why? Because he will get the sense of what he did. And after him, every person who does that action, who indulges in that crime in that same he will also get a burden for that.
And why is the outcome so severe?
Because he is changing the dean. He is changing the religion whereas the religion
Making it ordering something in the right belongs exclusively to our last panel.
Then we also learn from this ayah but a very important lesson, that if a person does not have knowledge about something, then he should adopt silence. He should not assume he should not guide without knowledge.
Because a lot of hands on it has over here now be ooni very common as mo manif Tara like Caliban, Luton and NASA, the lady in belaid. here and if you don't know about something, remain silent.
Because if somebody follows wrong because of what you said, thinking it to be right, then whose fault is it? It's your fault.
So if you don't know about something, say I don't know. Don't be hasty in passing a judgement.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Verily, Allah does not take away knowledge by snatching it from the hearts of people. But he takes away knowledge by taking away scholars until when not a single scholar remains. And people will take ignorant people as their leaders who are asked and they give legal opinion without any knowledge, going astray themselves and leading others astray. And such people, they're not guided, whose Deen is based on ignorance, that they have no knowledge. And they're issuing verdicts that are based on no knowledge. And people are following them blindly, without taking time to check the authenticity of what has been taught to them.
This is why our model there are no use to sit there and demo. Kabbalah and to
gain knowledge before you are made a leader
before you take a position of leadership, gain knowledge. So learn something because if you don't know, then what will you tell others?
A person might say, I don't want to learn, I want to tell other people. But today, in this day and age, it's very important for you to learn. Because even in your household, you will have to answer questions. Do your children do your family members. So it is mandatory on us to learn about what is halal, what is hot on because it pertains to our daily life. And if we make a mistake concerning that, just because of lack of knowledge, then we are responsible, because we didn't try hard enough to learn. And it's possible that you are in the process of learning, you learn about one thing and you tell other people about it, and later on you find out that what you learned was incorrect.
Therefore, what should you do?
Correct it because learning is an ongoing process.
Then we also learn from this ayah that Allah Subhana Allah does not guide the wrong people. The people who do learn, Allah does not guide them at all.
We learned that armor even though Hey, he is one who also introduced idols in Arabia.
He introduced idol worship as well.
The same person who brought the concept of cyber and we'll see then how is it that he was a very rich and influential person in the society. And he would go on business trips to Syria and do a sham and once he saw people who were worshipping idols, and he got very impressed by them, and he brought them to Makkah as well. Just imagine the hub of the heat. He brought idols over there. And he introduced idolatry over there. And he is the one who introduced the concept of Waseda inside Burnham, etc. to a person who does work. A lot is not guided.
Okay, we listen to the recitation of
me. Nice naini wamena
You need me to
tune for the woman His name
Sorry, we were talking about usually, in our culture like at weddings, we have so much food. And then at the end, like there's so much food wasted and thrown in the garbage or when we go to restaurants, we have like a really big plate of rice. And then there's so much for that's being thrown in the garbage like a chicken that hasn't even been touched. It goes straight to the garbage. And it's like so not to be even every single morsel. When you're eating. If people ask you, are you still hungry? For cleaning your plane? Yeah, if you're cleaning your baby, ask, Are you still hungry, and you don't know, the Baraka could be in what you have left behind the plate. Just take a
piece of bread and wipe your plate, what's the big deal? It's perhaps the best part. It's all the sauce and everything is there. So eat that.
I watched this video once in which they were showing, you know how in restaurants, people when they leave their food, and it's thrown in the garbage can they had showed about how this man, he came to collect the garbage and he took all those pieces of meat out. He took it home, and the children were eating it.
We leave pieces of meat, we leave vegetables and we leave so much food and somebody is waiting for that.
Panasonic Oh, I was just saying my family, the shoppers. Because what we do is when we go to the store, we're like, oh, you know, we're gonna buy only one thing. And then we come back with like 100 other things that we really don't need. And then when we like I was thinking about if we look at my house, like we have one bottle of galax. And then there's another bottle, Alex, that's exactly the same but a different name. And then we have another one that same value, but different names and so on alone, we think about it. When we see the word sale, you know, I was rushing for it. But do we really need any of those things? And what man usually says, You know what, right, that thing that
you really want? And then don't buy anything else besides I think has to handle? Are you just gonna pile up and pile up and pile up on things that you really don't need? And then we wonder we don't have money to give us? Yeah, and then usually when you do spring cleaning, we take out all the stuff in our house and we see like piles of codes and stuff that we haven't used in like 1020 years. And so how are you just looking just like, we really need all this stuff? Do you really need to keep adding to it to handle on me because I had gone to Africa for two years. And when we were there, my mom took us under a penny. And so I like it was a really good experience for us. So when we went
there, and we'd go to the store, and we'd see kids are aging, younger, to handle they're holding younger kids with them and they have no food. And when they see us holding taking food out of the store, they come running after us asking us Can you give us a piece of bread? It's how you see the near the garbage is and they're just scrounging through the garbage is every single day looking for one morsel of food. It really makes you think how much were you wasting, like Ramadan is the time when we're supposed to be saving food, but we end up wasting more food and he was giving us like a statistic that like in Canada if one day of food that we waste can feed one month's food in other
developing countries world. So we should really think about how much we waste and how much
I remember when we went for Hajj and we stayed in your living minute and the places where they had the buffet and everything. You're just taking dishes full of rice, meat and chicken and food and they're just throwing it in the garbage can.
And I was like how can you throw food over here? And I asked one of the men and he's like there's nobody to eat and it's all extra food.
But unfortunately when people go from here for HUD's they don't realize they're going for a bad not to enjoy buffets. And when there's so much food always you don't have time to eat and how much can you eat?
How much can you eat that food goes waste, nobody's there to eat it, nobody. So we need to see how much food we really need to eat, how much do we get for ourselves to eat and how much of it goes waste, the same money could be spent elsewhere, to provide the needy.
Similarly, I saw a big piece of meat, like a whole leg that had been thrown on the side of the road. Why? Because it was extra meat, somebody had perhaps got that meat as sacrifice and it's just there. You don't need it. Nobody needs to eat it, of hunger, that's a good thing. There's no needy person. But even there, you'll find needy people, you will find needy people. But there's so much food that people are wasting in
Saigon, I just recently watched a documentary it's called Blue gold. And what it was saying was that sooner or later, our freshwater will be almost gotten to the point where people are fighting for fresh water, rather than, you know, gold or diamonds or oil or anything like that. And the mega corporations are actually picking up on this. And they go into many different countries and they're trying to buy out their freshwater resources for one was Bosnia. And I they had gone there and the people there they fought for their water, because that they're impoverished already. And the only thing they have is a fresh water. And as medical operations, they're going to try to buy it out. So
they can use it for their manufacturing plans, and stuff like that. And they pretty much fought and fought and fought until they had their freshwater. But they were saying that sooner or later, these mega corporations, they're going to keep on trying to get people's different countries freshwater, especially with the ice caps are melting our freshwater just going and going. And especially the US in the West, we have such a huge quantity of it, and that we wasted. And then so sooner or later, we're just going to start fighting for freshwater.
We waste the blessings taken away. There's no Baraka.
So like, we were just talking about how in North America, there are so many people, overweight and obese and everyone's trying to lose weight. Whereas you know, in underdeveloped countries or places where they don't have even like one meal a day, they're just dying of hunger, and there's so much poverty and that same food, we're just using an excess and we're like harming ourselves through that. And they're being harmed because we're harming ourselves.
Sonic, corn, but
there's a lot of food wasted here. Anyways, I remember when we traveled to Africa, we thought we were still nine years old, she was very little and she's seen the poverty. And we literally lived in it. And so she looked at me and she said, mama, when we go back to Canada, we don't need anything. This is what she said. And even before that, were like we would scrape our plate and lick our fingers or how we eat because in some culture, it's an embarrassment for them to scrape the plate and liquor. It means for them that you are still hungry you've never eaten before. So it's an embarrassment and it is a totally wrong belief. So when we were there like I said, No wonder you
guys don't eat because you're wasting so much food. So for them like you know some of them they don't know. Or some of them it's cultural there it's embarrassment for them to finish the food and Subhanallah it's I mean, I don't know like I just can't wait.
I just thought about one of the verses actually never heard the RS does not attract the transmission but are they equal? Those who know those who do not know right? And we know like the machine all their practices those like no evidence behind it. And one of the tasks Shere Khan is for you to like do innovation you know when they do something right. And you think you're doing it right was actually wrong. So it won't hurt for you to ask someone when he heard something mother Do you know like or sister brother? Is it from you know waiting to hear from Can you give us the evidence you know it might be to do that just don't blindly follow
a cycle I just want to share two quick things about food. I met this lady once and she I think been through poverty. But she was telling me how they have actually seen lack of poverty. Because she like we personally used to be outside the restaurant waiting for them to the garbage and we could eat the food from it. And then now the movie and she was saying how her own children are not even paying for the food because little things fell on the ground are going to be driven by the garbage they won't even clean I mean not dirty or anything but if there's no value because you know they have so much here and about the clothes or let alone the dresses of the wedding. We are now into too
much of the fake jewelry which is too expensive. I was personally crying on my wedding dress and I personally know somebody who bought there for $60 I'm like Are you serious? You're going to wear the only for few hours only. And then I think for us girls is the matching that is kills us you have to match from top to bottom.
The sad thing is that
If you get the wedding dress and you know you're not going to wear it again, obviously,
why keep it for like the next 20 years just to show your children?
Why give it to somebody else who could wear it. If you've made this mistake of buying a very expensive wedding dress, don't just leave it in your closet in a suitcase to sit there for the next 2025 years, and eventually, you're gonna throw it out, give it somebody else who can wear it. And there is no harm in wearing somebody else's wedding dress, because they work for some time, you can wait for some time and pass it on to somebody else if you really have to wear something that's that gaadi extravagant.
starrmatica just looking at the variety of fruits and vegetables that are lost products Allah has blessed us with. And for the longest time, I was thinking like, the colors like where do we get inspired to come up with such beautiful colors, but really, and truly, it's originally from the creation of a lot of data. The colors are just so amazing. So not only that pleasing to our eyes, but to the smell when we cook and to our taste buds and everything. So Allah is providing for us, let's take advantage of what he has.
I was thinking that we're talking about extravagance of food. But one thing that where we should start from is today, when we go to the lunchroom, and we buy our food or we're about to throw our plates. See how much have we left behind and how much are we wasting because that's where it starts from we're talking about it but let's practically implement it as well. And for those students who are online, they could do the same thing in their homes go in their fridge, look at Okay, what's extra What haven't I eaten, what do I know? That's gonna go bad and then I'm going to throw it out. Eat it now before it goes to waste.
And if you know you're not going to eat it, don't take it. Don't buy it. Don't pour too much.
