What did we learn in the previous two verses at the beginning of the second Jews? The verses are about the change of the Qibla. When the Prophet saw a lot, isn't it migrated to Medina, how long did he pray in the direction of Baden Mater's? 16 or 17 months? How many years is that? A year and either four months or five months? After that what happened? The verses were revealed, in which the prophets of Allah Islam and the believers were commanded to face which direction then the carbo? What was the original Qibla from always the Kaaba. So how come the Bani Israel prayed in the direction of beta mock this? There are two opinions concerning that. First of all, it is said that

00:00:40 --> 00:01:25

they were commanded to because we learn in the following verses while equal in which certain Who am I will leave that for each nation is a particular direction which it turns towards meaning that is the direction that it faces. And secondly, they said that this is a change that they brought within the Sharia by themselves. Just like many other commands, they change themselves. Similarly, this as well, they altered by their own accord. Anyway, let's go back to the verses. Allah Subhana Allah says other nodata called Luba Woodrick of his summer, certainly we saw the constant turning of your face where fish summer into the sky. Not all noise from the root letters raw Hamza? Yeah. Right Yun

00:01:25 --> 00:01:51

is to see something. Now all the noon at the beginning it gives meaning of we saw Nara we saw and who does we refer to? Allah subhanaw taala. Why is we being used for Allah? For what reason? This is the we have royalty of honor. So indeed, we saw the Kaluga Hijikata colobus from the root letters off lamber. Any word that you can think from the same root cough lumber?

00:01:52 --> 00:02:39

And what is called mean heart? What is your heart? Like? Is it still? No, it's constantly pumping. It's constantly moving. As long as it's moving, we're alive. Once it stops, we're gone. And if you think about it, the emotional heart as well meaning our emotions, how are they? Are they constantly the same? No, they're constantly going up and down. Especially women. At one hour, we're very happy the other hour everybody's wondering what's wrong with you? Are you okay? Did somebody say something? So the state of the heart is constantly changing up and down. It constantly turns about. So the core loop is the constant movement, the constant rotation the constant going up and down

00:02:39 --> 00:03:20

constantly going up and down. So we saw the constant movement of what what Chica of your face watch while Jeem her of whose face the face of the prophets of Allah said um, you refers to him? How was the prophet said a lot of students face constantly turning about for sama into the sky. So you can imagine somebody's looking down, and every few minutes they look up. Every few seconds, they look up, they're making dua, and then they look up and they look down and then they look up. What does it show? You know, when you're making draw, or when you are thinking about something? When do you look up? When do you look up to the horizon? When you are talking to Allah, when you are hoping when

00:03:20 --> 00:04:00

you're wishing when you're desiring that Allah subhanaw taala should send something your way, when he should accept your supplication. So the Prophet salallahu Salam, he constantly looked up to the sky in anticipation that Gibreel would come with the command that Qibla has been changed. The Qibla has been changed to what do GABA we learned that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam migrated from Mecca to Medina that is when he was commanded to face bathe and muck this only in Makkah, he was able to face both beta maracas and Kaaba. But in Medina, he couldn't do that anymore. And first of all, leaving Makkah was very hard on him, and secondly, not facing the Kaaba in prayer was even

00:04:00 --> 00:04:44

harder. And he knew that the final command was to be what that he had to face, the Kaaba in prayer, because that was the original Qibla and we know that all of the changes that people had brought previously, the religion was being restored, meaning the religion was being revealed in its original form to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to perfect the religion. So he knew that Ibrahima, listen, I'm Stabler was the Kaaba. So obviously Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his Qibla was also supposed to be the carver. However, he was waiting for the command from Allah. And he really wanted to face the Kaaba, but he did not do so until Allah commanded him. So Allah is saying, we saw your constant turning of

00:04:44 --> 00:04:57

your face. We saw you looking up again and again. Every time you looked up, we saw you every time you hoped we knew. We heard you or the neurotoxin Luba, what he could

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

look at the love in this that is

00:05:00 --> 00:05:46

Every time the Prophet sallallaahu Salam looked up, Allah paid attention to him. Allah looked at his face, Allah who responded to him. Remember that whenever we are making dua, Allah hears us. We're never too far from Allah. Never. Every time we make a DUA, even if we utter something in our hearts, and we're not able to verbally say it with our mouths, but that yearning can be seen in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. And erotica, Luba chica fetzima, we saw you every single time, felon. Hualian Naka. So, surely we will definitely turn you, fella newer Leon Nica What do you think the root letters are? Wow, lamb? Yeah, the word seems very big. But if you break it up, it's easy to

00:05:46 --> 00:06:35

figure out what the root letters are. For means so love surely no means we, while lamea are the root letters and noon with the shutdown means definitely, and calf means you. So surely, we will definitely turn you into a pivot Latin into a direction that the law has, you'll be very happy with it. They will let them off balance you know about this word already. And talk ba ra board. Yeah, robia that only is to be happy with something, but only to be happy with something. And doubt law has you will be happy with what had it and how refers to the Qibla. So we will definitely turn you meaning we will command you to turn in the direction that you will be happy with. In other words,

00:06:35 --> 00:06:42

Allah subhanaw taala is telling the Prophet salallahu Salam that we will command you very soon that you should face the Kaaba in prayer.

00:06:44 --> 00:07:24

Now imagine the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he wanted to face the Kaaba, Allah subhanaw taala reassures him, don't worry, the command will come and it will definitely come how soon this soon for Wally which hookah So turn your face. Just imagine, first of all, he's told we know that you really want it and we are going to give you the command. And just imagine if you were being told about this, that don't worry, somebody will come and they will come soon. And all of a sudden they open the door and your friend walks in how happy you would be how excited you would be. So similarly, look at the sequence in the verse. Look at all of these statements, we will definitely give you the

00:07:24 --> 00:08:07

command. How when right now for one leverage hugger. So turn your face one the same route while lamea So turn your face shutaura in the direction of Al Masjid Al haram, the Sacred Mosque. The word shutter is from the letter shin Farah. And shutter means in the direction of something towards something. And it's basically to face something from far to face something from a distance, not from very close, but from a distance. For example, if a person is standing right next to a wall and they're facing the wall, is the wall in their shutter? No. Why? Because the wall is right in front of them. But if for example, I'm standing all the way here and the wall that's all the way but at

00:08:07 --> 00:08:50

the back of the hall, if I'm facing in the direction of the wall and the wall is in my shutter. Why because I'm facing it from a very long distance. I'm not in front of it. Similarly when we face the carpet is Aqaba right in front of us. No, how far is it? Miles and miles, kilometers and kilometers away from us. So when we stand in the direction of the karma, it's in front of us in the sense that we are facing it, it's within the direction that we are facing. For one li wedge aka Chaparral Masjid Al haram. So turn your face in the direction of Al Masjid Al haram, the sacred mustard, mustard, you know is from sujood, the place of such the place that has been officially made,

00:08:50 --> 00:09:34

officially designated for the purpose of prayer. For instance, the place that we are sitting at an Al haram. How do I mean? What do we know the word Haram as it means something that is forbidden? Like for example, alcohol is haram. What does it mean? Can you drink it? No, you can't? Can you put it in your food? Just a little bit of it. You can't. You can't eat it you cannot consume it. Why? Because It's haram, you have to stay away from it. Similarly, animals that are haram Can we eat them? No, we can't eat them. So how long means something that is forbidden something that you can't do? Why is it that the masjid that is around the Kaaba that is called haram? Because certain things

00:09:34 --> 00:09:59

are forbidden over there. It's called Masjidul haram. Why? Because certain things are forbidden over there. You cannot do certain things there. Can you think of something that is not allowed over there? Killing people? Even if there is a criminal who goes and hides in Makkah, can you kill him? Can you punish him? No, you can't. Scholars have said that you can't punish even that criminal was taken refuge in Makkah what you have to do is that you don't

00:10:00 --> 00:10:24

After him, you don't deal with him. You don't interact with him you have a complete boycott with him. So he's forced to leave Makkah, because he's hungry, he is going to die otherwise. So when he leaves Makkah, then you deal with him. Imagine what else is forbidden over there. cutting of trees, that is not permissible. What else is forbidden over there fighting with one another, humiliating another person. What else is forbidden over there?

00:10:25 --> 00:11:05

Hunting. killing animals is also forbidden over there except for just a few, which we are informed about which are harmful to people only those are allowed to be killed. But other than that a person cannot kill animals over there, no hunting is allowed over there. So this is the reason why that Masjid is called Al Masjid Al haram, because certain things are forbidden there. Another reason why it's called Masjid Al Haram is because Haram is in martyrdom meaning one that is sacred one that has to be respected. One that we have to show a lot of respect to we have to take that place very seriously. If you go to any other place, you can hang out there talk whatever, do whatever you feel

00:11:05 --> 00:11:09

like but when you go to the sacred masjid, you have to show respect to that place.

00:11:10 --> 00:11:52

Every Masjid deserves respect but a Masjid Al haram deserves even more respect, even more care even more attention from us. So anyway, we see that in this ayah the Prophet salallahu Salam is given the command finally for one li word you heard the Chateau al Masjid Al haram. Just imagine how happy the Prophet salallahu Salam would have been, when he would have received these words, how happy how satisfied, how relieved how content he would have been an Allah subhanaw taala says very truly that the law has you will be happy with it, you will be pleased with it. And then the believers are addressed that will Hazel malcontent, Hazel, where hydro is used for place Hi, so where Ma, this is

00:11:52 --> 00:12:39

extra, ma is extra over here. And remember that any extra word what it means by that is that it will not be understood in its literal sense in the context. It will not be understood in its literal sense in the context. So more generally means what what right, it means what do you translate this as what over here? No. Sometimes you translate it as not, do you translate this as not? You don't? So why is my here then, if we don't understand it in its literal sense, what's the purpose, the purpose is to emphasize what has been mentioned. So high sama meaning where so ever any place Hazlemere any place at all wheresoever you are hazemag Kontum. Notice the word con term, you see the

00:12:39 --> 00:13:25

term and the meme does that and meme is for plural you all. Now previously we learned that for Wally Wally is singular. For well lit word hacker word hacker. Only the prophets are allowed some is being told that you face the Kaaba in prayer. Now come to all the believers, meaning all the believers also face the Kaaba in prayer were hated my contempt for well Lou would you have come Shapira would you is the plural of watch. So first, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was told separately and then the believers are also commanded that all of you have to do this. What in the medina but obviously when the command would be given and the Muslims would pray in the direction of the Kaaba, as Allah

00:13:25 --> 00:14:07

subhanaw taala said earlier say a Colusa Amina nurse, the people will start objecting. So when the objections begin, what are you supposed to do? What are you supposed to think? What should you know that we're in the Latina and indeed those people who who talk it out they were given the book? Who to Hamza those people who have been given the Book mean the Jews and the Christians? lair? Allah Munna? Surely they know. I mean, they know what do they know that unknown will help them? Indeed, it is the truth, mirror behind from their Lord. What is the truth, facing the Kaaba in prayer? That Makka Cava is the original Qibla they know that this is the truth from the Lord. They know that when

00:14:07 --> 00:14:49

you are facing the karma, this is not out of your own desire, but rather Allah has commanded you. How do they know? Because they had the Kitab. And in the Kitab, we learn from the Quran. In their scriptures, it was mentioned very clearly about who about the coming of the final messenger, and not just about His coming, but also about his name and about His signs about his characteristics about what he will do. So they knew him very clearly. And off the signs off the descriptions that they were informed off was that he will face the Qibla abou of Ibrahim alayhis salam. So when the Prophet sallallahu sallam was told to face the Kaaba, this was not something new for the hood. It was not

00:14:49 --> 00:14:59

something new for them at all. We're in the medina Otaki tabula Ala Moana, and who will help them rubbing him they knew it was the truth. But then why did they object they were just

00:15:00 --> 00:15:21

trying to show that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was not the true prophet. They were trying to create a propaganda that look one day he's following this liberal or the other, he's following the other Qibla he doesn't know what he's doing, don't follow him, whereas he knew exactly that this was supposed to happen. So they were pretending as if they didn't know anything, as if the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was wrong. Why? To lead other people astray?

00:15:22 --> 00:16:01

Were in the Ladino Otto Kitab, Allah Allah Munna, and now will help me Robbie. Now in the Quran, we learn that they knew. Is there any evidence that told us that they knew? Yes. For example, if you look at the people who embraced Islam, who embraced Islam at the hands of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Amongst them were those who were mystic in Amongst them were also those who were previously your hood and Asara. For example, Salman Farsi, when he came to Medina, you know why he came to Medina, he was told by his teacher that the final messenger is going to come. So you go to a place, which is like this and like this, he gave him the description, you go there and the final messenger

00:16:01 --> 00:16:38

will come there. So he was on his way to Medina, he went to a group of people who were traveling, he said, Please take me with you in your group. And they said, Okay, fine, they took him and they sold him as a slave. And then he was gifted by the owner to somebody else, and he actually ended up in Medina with his master who was Jewish. So when he was in Medina, he was very relieved that this is the place where he was supposed to come anyway. So anyway, he was in Medina. And when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, he went to see him, obviously, he wanted to know who he was, what he was saying, what he was teaching, and what the Prophet said a lot of Saddam said what he thought made

00:16:38 --> 00:17:16

perfect sense to summon Farsi. But he didn't accept just like that. He tested the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know how, through the signs that he knew the last messenger would possess. The description that he knew the final messenger would possess of them was that he does not accept charity, the final messenger does not accept charity. So you know what he did. So now if I say you went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one day, and he said, these are some dates, and they are sadaqa, they offer charity. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he gave it to the people, he didn't take any of it the next day, so man Pharisee came again. And he said, these are some dates, and

00:17:16 --> 00:17:20

they're a gift for you. So the prophets of Allah said, and then it

00:17:21 --> 00:17:56

says, The man Pharisee knew, that definitely is the Prophet sallallahu some, so he tested in one sign after the other. And finally, he wanted to see the mark of the seat of the profits, which was on the back of the profit side of autism. It was a clear mark, you know, like how we have a mole or skin like a black mark. The similarity on his back was a mark that said, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam. It was a part of his body. It was like a mark on his back. So Salman Farsi wanted to see that to be certain that yes, indeed, he is the final messenger. So he was going, you know, after the prophets of Allah and looking here and there trying to look and the prophets of

00:17:56 --> 00:18:36

Allah Cydonia that he this is what he's trying to see. So the prevalence of autism lowered his upper garment a little bit, so that he could see the wrongfulness he saw, and he was certain, he was absolutely sure. So if some man Farsi believed in Prophet sallallahu sallam, then what does it mean? What does it prove? That he was definitely the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was definitely the final messenger that the Al Kitab were waiting for. So if they did not accept him, if they did not believe in Him, then they are the ones who are at fault. So Allah says we're in the Levina Otto kitab. Allah Allah Munna under will Hakuna rubbing, if they know that it is the truth from the Lord

00:18:36 --> 00:19:17

because they knew about the sign. They have it in their scripture. But obviously, when a person states one lie, if he has to cover up that lie, does he end up uttering more lies? Yes. For example, a kid says to the mother, I never did this, who did this then? So in so Did you know When such and such happen? They did this with the makeup a whole story. One lie leads to many other lies. One crime leads to many other crimes. So when they first of all rejected the Prophet salallahu Salam knowingly, obviously they had to do something to cover up their fault. What did they do? They altered their Scripture. They conceal the signs that were mentioned in the book that were very

00:19:17 --> 00:19:25

clear. So Allah says when Allah Who Beulah filan, and Allah is not at all unaware, I'm Mayor Malone, from what they do.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:59

Allah is not at all unaware of what they do, every single action they do, whether it's concealing a part of the book or altering something, whatever it is, Allah subhanaw taala knows about it fully and completely. And the thing is, Yama, Luna, Ahmed, Ahmed is of different types. There are some actions that we do with our hearts, for example, the feelings, the thoughts, the intentions, this is what action of the heart, there are other actions that we do with our tongue, for example, what we say and there are other actions that we do with our limbs with our jewelry, any kind of action, whether it is of the heart of the tongue, or the

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

them who knows about it? Allah subhanaw taala knows completely about it.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:52

What do we learn in this verse? First of all we see in this verse for the Nura, Taka Luba wa Chica for Sama, Allah subhanaw taala sees, he sees us, he sees he watches every single movement, every single gesture of ours, whether we do it secretly or openly, whether we do it intentionally or unintentionally, any action we do, any movement we make, whether it is looking somewhere, lifting up our head, lowering our head, constantly moving anything we do, Allah watches us for the neurotoxin Luba logic of summer. So what does it mean? That we should be careful about our actions? The Prophet sallallahu sallam was looking up to the sky, Allah saw Him. If we look at someone, if we look at

00:20:52 --> 00:21:20

something, whether it is somebody's test paper, which we should not be looking at, or it should be non Muharram, an unrelated man, and we're constantly staring at him, constantly glancing at him constantly looking at him with wrong feelings, who knows about it? Allah subhanaw taala somebody is trying to type in their password, they don't know we're looking and we try to look who's watching our eyes. Allah is watching our eyes. People may not find out, but who is looking, Allah is looking.

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

Then we also learned in this verse that a person may look up to the sky. And this is not bad etiquette with Allah subhanaw taala meaning this is not being disrespectful towards Allah subhanaw taala. For example, you have this deep desire in your heart, you want something, you want something to be done and you're making, you're constantly you don't even have the words to say it. You just look up to the sky, and you're just talking in your heart with Allah, it's perfectly fine. You're allowed to do that. It's not disrespectful to your Lord. However, when you are praying for Allah, when you're standing in prayer, then you cannot look up to this guy. Remember that? When we are

00:22:00 --> 00:22:04

praying Salah we cannot look up, that is something that's not allowed.

00:22:05 --> 00:22:45

Were we supposed to look in Salah download the place, such the or the maximum we can do is look at the Imam if we're standing right behind the Imam. Or, for example, if a person is spraying Salah in the courtyard of the Haram right around the Kaaba, and the Kaaba is right before him, then he may glance at that. However, looking up at the sky or looking elsewhere, is not something that is allowed. For example, when we're standing in prayer, can we stare at our elbow, shoulder, the other person socks, their skirt? Or their pants? Can we look at them know their toes? No, we can't do that. What about the pattern on the Fairmont? Can we look at that? No, we can't look at that where

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

you're supposed to look at the place of such.

00:22:49 --> 00:23:30

Because as long as you're focused with your eyes, Allah subhanaw taala will listen to you. He will pay attention to you. But if you look here, and then you look again, then Allah will turn away from you. Then Allah will not listen to you then meaning he will not respond to you. So if we want that Allah subhanaw taala should accept our prayers, our doors, then what should we do? remain focused in the Salah even with our eyes. Another important lesson that we learn in this verse is about the obedience of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to his Lord, how obedient he was to Allah subhanaw taala. We know very clearly that he desperately wanted to face the Kaaba in Salah. He wanted to do

00:23:30 --> 00:24:13

that. And he knew that eventually the command would be given to him. But did he face the Kaaba out of his own accord? No, he did not do it. He did not do it until Allah commanded him until he was given the orders until he was given the clear instruction. This is called servitude. This is called obedience, that you even make your desires, your wishes, even if they're genuine, even if they're very good, under the command of Allah subhanaw taala that you keep everything of yours your wishes, your desires, everything under the command of Allah subhanaw taala. This is true servitude. And this is something that we see very clearly in the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:54

Then we also learned in this verse about the obligation of facing the carpet in prayer. Because in this verse, we learned Allah subhanaw taala said the prophets are about Islam for worldly which, and then to the believers were haoma Kontum wherever you are. So when we are praying for Allah, what direction are we supposed to face? The Karva this is something that is mandatory. And this is actually a condition of a comment to Salah a condition of the acceptance of prayer. Just like we'll do is a condition can you pray without the Hara? Can you pray without Budo? No, you can't. Well, you're Celebi valid. No. Similarly, if you don't bother to figure out where the Qibla is, and you

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

pray in any direction, is your cell acceptable? No, it's not. It's a condition for Salah.

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

And wherever a person may be, because look at the word Hi, Salma, anywhere you are anyplace, whether it's on the earth or in air or in the water, wherever you are, when you're praying Salah face, the karma, that Dibbler you have to face. And this is a prerequisite for Salah. There are some exceptions, though, when you are exempted from facing the Kaaba from facing the proper Qibla. The first is, when a person is performing voluntary prayers when a person is traveling, for example, you're sitting in the car, and you're like, you know what, I'm just sitting waiting to get my destination. I can't read I don't know what to read. I don't have 3g, so I can't even check my

00:25:43 --> 00:26:15

email. So you don't know what to do. You don't wanna waste your time. So you think, okay, I might as well pay enough I have my will do. But then you're like, I'm not standing. And I don't know where the Qibla is. And besides, even if you know where the Qibla is, it's behind you and you're going the other direction can you face can you turn the direction of the car? No, if you do that you won't get to your destination. So in knuffel, Salah, voluntary salah, it's not a condition that you face the Qibla it doesn't matter if the vehicle or your car or your animal, whatever it changes direction, you don't have to bother to change it back into the direction of the Qibla. But this is what

00:26:16 --> 00:26:58

voluntary prayers. The second exception is at the time of extreme fear, when it's not possible that a person faces the Qibla what does it mean by that? Inshallah we will learn in the Quran about Sonetel hope, the fear prayer. We know that when the Muslims that were in Medina, they were attacked many times by external forces by external enemies. And many times they had to go outside of Medina in order to fight the battle. Now imagine the enemies in front of you, and you have to pray salah the army is camped here, the other armies camped on the side. And the Qibla is this direction. So if you are facing the Qibla, then the enemy can come from your back and attack you and finish you. So

00:26:58 --> 00:27:34

this is a situation of extreme fear. So at this time, it's not necessary that people face the Qibla. Likewise, the person is trying to escape from somewhere. If he knows that, by the time you reach destination, time of Salah will be over, he asked to pray. So he will pray in whatever direction he's facing. He doesn't have to figure out where the Qibla is he doesn't need to face the qibla in whatever direction he can just pray. That's the second exception. The third exception is when a person is unable to face the key blow due to extreme illness. Due to being very, very sick, he's not able to face the Qibla.

00:27:35 --> 00:28:17

So for example, a person is in a hospital, he's lying down on the bed, he cannot even sit up. And the Qibla is the other direction completely, is supposed to sit up on the other side so that he can face the Qibla. No, he's not required to do that. Wherever he's lying down wherever he is sitting, he can pray right there. And then he doesn't have to face the Qibla. These are the three exceptions. Now, what if you are in a mall, and it's time for Salah, you go down somewhere into an empty corner, there's very few people over there to figure out you can pray there. You're like, I don't know where the Qibla is, let me just pray facing the wall. Can you do that? You cannot do that. You cannot face

00:28:17 --> 00:29:01

a direction unless and until you are sure that that is the Qibla you cannot say whatever, Allah will accept it. No, you have to figure it out to the best of your ability. Okay, let's say you figured out corn is the best of your ability to Qibla was a particular way you prayed. And then later on, you realize no it was somewhere else. Is it your fault? No. Do you have to repeat the salah? No. Why? Because when you were facing that direction, you were certain that that was the Quibbler afterwards you found out you were not at fault. But this shows that we cannot pray in any direction when we are confused. For example, in an airplane, you are unable to face the Qibla just like a sick

00:29:01 --> 00:29:40

person is unable to face the Crippler even if he tries to he cannot but if a person is going on a car, then what can he do? He can always stop pull over and stand and pray and get back on the car and go away. So the point is that you cannot play guesswork when it comes to the Qibla when it comes to first Salah then you cannot pray in the car, you have to stop it pray. So with regard to the Qibla whenever you face the Qibla you have to be certain that this is the right Qibla whether or not it is you decided you figure it out to the best of your ability. Now tell me how will you figure out which was the Qibla what can you do next time you go to the mall and it's time to pray your father's

00:29:40 --> 00:30:00

is not here to pick you up and you're like by the time I'll get home I'll miss my salah What are you going to do? How will you figure out which way the Qibla is? The most easy thing to do is that if you have a good phone if you have an iPod if you have a phone on which you can get an app which tells you which way the directions are by that. First of all there are many that are free. If you can't find a free

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

version buy it? How much will it be? $2 $3? Maximum of $5? Tell me Have you not bought a pizza for $2? Have you not bought a coffee and a muffin for $3 and more? When it comes to buying apps, unfortunately, we become very oh my god, $2.99 I'm not getting it, you buy a coffee for more than that. You buy a bottle of water for more than that many times. So if it's something that is useful, something that will help you figure out where the Qibla is, by that, keep that on your phone. Another very easy way is that 100 align this country, we know which ways north which way south, which way is east, which way is best to coordinate the main streets. So for example, if you are

00:30:39 --> 00:31:18

somewhere and you can't figure out which was north east south, because you don't know like me, so you ask other people, you ask them, and there are many people will know about it, especially people who would have driving who know about all of their directions, you can always ask them, Did you please let me know which way north is which way south is which way east is, and they'll let you know, inshallah. So that's a very easy way. Another way that you can use to figure out where the Qibla is that you're outside, you're outside, and you see that the sun is up, you know that the sun rises from where East, and the sunsets were West. But the Sun is somewhere here. You don't know if

00:31:18 --> 00:31:57

it's going here or there a year there? How would you figure out which way the shadow is. So look at a tree, which was the shadow, you'll figure out the sun is here. If it's the beginning of the day, the sun is rising, if it's towards the end of the day after the sun is setting. Okay? So then you will figure out where East is where West is. And then obviously, where's north? Where's south, behind you, right. So you will figure out which way north is. And according to that, where North East is, and then in that direction, you press. So these are three simple ways through which you can figure out where in what direction to capitalize. And also one more easy thing we can do is that

00:31:57 --> 00:32:31

many prayer mats you can actually get with the compass in it, right? They have that. So if you have one of those, you can keep that in your car. So anytime you're somewhere out and you can't figure out, pull that out and you know where to face. Fog for law, you cannot pray in a car you have to pray standing unless you are unable to you are ill, you're sick, your foot is injured, you cannot stand your knees injured, you cannot stand. So you have to sit down and pray you have to lie down and pray or you're in a plane, there's no way you can stand. So in that situation, you are forced to sit and pray, you're not going to pull over on the highway. That's not allowed unless in an

00:32:31 --> 00:32:52

extremely severe situation. And it's not safe to stand on the side of the highway and pray there either. So what you're going to do is, you know from before, that it's going to be Maghrib time soon. So before you get onto the next stretch of highway, pray, wait till Maghrib Salah pray. And if you know you can meet the next stop, you can get to the next stop before the time of Maghrib expires, then you get there and pray. You should plan ahead.

00:32:53 --> 00:33:33

If you are lying down and your feet are towards the Qibla is that something that's not allowed? Is that forbidden? It's not forbidden. If you don't feel comfortable, don't do it. But don't say that it's haram unless you have an evidence. For example, if your room is such that you can only put your bed in a particular direction, and if you put it there, your feet are going to be in the direction of the Qibla. There's nothing wrong with that. If we try to forbid it, there has to be some proof some evidence of it. One more important thing that we learn in this verses that Allah subhanaw taala says when Allah who will often in America, we are modeling Allah is not at all unaware of what they

00:33:33 --> 00:34:09

do. What does it show that whenever we were praying, don't just guesstimate because Allah knows about what you're doing. Allah knows about the intention of your heart, how much effort you've put in. So figure out which way the Qibla is to the best of your ability. And when you find out for example, in the middle of the Salah which way the Qibla is, then what do you do change your direction, in Salah. We learned that a person from been husana he was going somewhere and he saw a group of people they were praying there for just Allah and they were facing still vital markers and they have prayed one record by then. So he said to them, that listen, the Qibla has been changed.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:35

And they turned in the direction of the Kaaba in their Salah. So for example, you're standing in prayer in your friend's house, and your friend walks in and she says I told you the Qibla was on the other side. So then what do you do? Break your asana? No. Do you ignore her complete your Salah and then yell at her at the end? No. What do you do? You change your Qibla right there and then that's listened to recitation

00:34:36 --> 00:34:37

or do you know?

00:34:49 --> 00:34:55

What catch up on Miss GED on what
