Are we live in a ship? vinylidene Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim lesson number 23 Surah Al Baqarah. I remember 172 to 176.

00:00:17 --> 00:00:26

Now we see here that first Allah told us to eat well fix our eating habits and then Allah tells us about what we cannot eat.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:39

So in Namaha Rama alaykum, indeed he has forbidden upon you in nama. What does in the moment indeed nothing but this the only things that Allah has forbidden on you.

00:00:40 --> 00:01:04

One thing before we continue, remember that in this idea, the list of haram foods is not being mentioned. The list of haram foods is not being mentioned. Only a few of the Haram foods are being mentioned. So why is in no Merced over here indeed nothing but this to show us that the majority of the things are halal. There are only a few things that we shouldn't eat.

00:01:05 --> 00:01:10

We think otherwise, everything is haram. Only a few things are halal. It's the other way around.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:46

So in nama Halima alaykum how Brahma from haram haram mean, what is it that he has forbidden upon you and Mater mean Welter mode, what does mode mean? That and Mehta is that which is dead, that which is dead, meaning the animal which is dead, corpse dead animal. And Linguistically the word Mehta applies to an animal that dies a death that has not been caused by a human being

00:01:48 --> 00:02:04

an animal that dies a death that was not caused by a human being. This is what the word literally means Mater. So for example, if a lion killed a deer, is that deer Mehta? Yes.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:17

If a human being slaughters a cow, is that cow Mehta? No, no, because the human being caused the animal's death.

00:02:18 --> 00:02:24

If an animal falls off of a cliff and dies, is it Mater? Yes.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:35

If an animal got sick and then it died, is it Mehta? Yes. So Mehta is something that Allah has forbidden on us to eat.

00:02:36 --> 00:02:39

Now in the shadow era, what is Mater

00:02:41 --> 00:02:44

mater in the shanira is that animal

00:02:45 --> 00:02:58

which has died. And it did not die according to the laws of the shittier in the sense that it did not die in a way that animal would be halal.

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

Okay, in a way that that animal will become halal for consumption. What do I mean by that?

00:03:07 --> 00:03:14

If an animal falls off a cliff dies, can you eat it? No. If an animal was caught by a lion, can you eat it? No.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:26

If an animal was slaughtered by an atheist, is it halal? No, it will be considered as mater

00:03:27 --> 00:03:46

if an animal was shot by an atheist, can you eat that? No, it will be considered Mehta if an animal was let's say, electrocuted. And as a result of that electrocution it died immediately. Is it halal? No.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:55

If an animal was slaughtered, but the name of Allah was not mentioned, is it halal? No, it will be made that it will be dead.

00:03:56 --> 00:04:01

So in nama have one or lake on one may Tata.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:25

So this includes an animal that died a natural death and animal the dies, an accidental death and animal which was not slaughtered properly, an animal that was slaughtered. But the blood was not caused to flow out of it properly. An animal that was not slaughtered by a Muslim or Jew or a Christian.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:30

So, this is what Mehta Allah has forbidden for us to eat that.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:39

Now one thing remember that if an animal is slaughtered in the right way, by who? By a Muslim,

00:04:40 --> 00:04:43

by a Jew, by a Christian,

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

so a Muslim and from the people of the book,

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

then it will be halal.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:59

But this is not the only condition that a Muslim do a Christian should slaughter there are other conditions as well. Like for example, the

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

Name of Allah be pronounced it should not be dedicated to anyone else except Allah.

00:05:06 --> 00:05:10

Secondly, what them and the blood

00:05:11 --> 00:05:19

we have learned the word whsv Could Dima Dima is the plural of them. Kingdom is blood.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

So blood is something that we cannot consume.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:41

Does it mean that let's say you bought some chicken from halal meat store you brought it home you cooked it and then when you were eating it you took a piece of meat off and on the bone you see redness, like haram blood

00:05:43 --> 00:05:53

what kind of blood is this flowing blood. In the Quran we learn about weatherman Musk's forehand blood that has been spilled.

00:05:54 --> 00:06:09

So you can say like, for example, when an animal is slaughtered and the blood comes out of a person collects that and drinks that or mixes it in something not allowed to consume that. Okay, blood we're not allowed to drink. We're not allowed to consume.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:38

The Prophet sallallahu sallam said there is an exception. We'll handle Atlanta may tiny weather Manny to dead and two types of blood have been made permissible for us. exception to that, and two types of blood have been made permissible for us for a millimeter then as for the two dead what are they for the hoot while gerat than they are the fish and the locusts?

00:06:40 --> 00:06:45

So if you see a fish at the cost, it's dead.

00:06:46 --> 00:07:01

Is it halal for you to eat? Yes. If you buy fish from a non Muslim is it allowed for you to eat it? Yes. If you go to let's say a Japanese restaurant they serve only fish seafood. You have sushi is

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

less it is.

00:07:05 --> 00:07:22

Okay. Mehta than do that. What are the fish? And secondly, locusts? Why is that fish hunted? Because you can't slaughter fish. I mean, when people catch fish, they catch them by the hundreds. So is it possible that as you take each fish out you slaughtered and how would you slaughter it?

00:07:24 --> 00:07:35

How would you slaughter? It? Can't which neck would you cut off from where? You can't do that? Okay. And secondly, locusts, what are locusts?

00:07:37 --> 00:07:37


00:07:38 --> 00:08:01

You find them a lot on fields in the desert. Okay. And especially in the desert, what would happen is that for example, a swarm of locusts are coming. Then because of the heat, many of them die so you would find them you can say fried or baked on the desert sand so people will eat it this like no crunchy stuff like you have your crunchy chips. Okay.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:15

Luca salsa Can you slaughter locusts? How can you slaughter locust? I mean, how can you even catch a locust first of all? Okay, and then take the knife and say Bismillah Allahu Akbar, and it's

00:08:16 --> 00:08:42

not possible. So two dead animals are halal. What are they? The fish and the locusts and two types of blood are Hala. What are they? What are the Mani fel cabbie? Do what the *? They are the liver and the spleen mean the liver and the spleen of an animal that has been slaughtered properly. You would say why is liver spleen why are they described as blood because they have a lot to do with blood.

00:08:43 --> 00:09:04

Spleen for example, it is said that it holds extra blood and we see that liver and spleen both of them there are two organs that are concerned with filtering, detoxifying cleaning the blood so they're full of blood. Okay, so these two you are allowed to consume as long as the animal was slaughtered properly, as long as the animal is halal for you to eat.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:09

So in the Mahabharata Mara Lake Como first of all, Mehta, secondly,

00:09:11 --> 00:09:13

secondly, we're done and the blood

00:09:15 --> 00:09:32

thirdly, well ml frenzied and the flesh of swine, lamb. What does lamb meat meat, the fleshy part, the meat part? So the flesh, the meat of what? The Kinsey,

00:09:33 --> 00:09:38

the pig, the hog, the swine, whatever you want to call it, male, female, whatever breed

00:09:39 --> 00:09:48

all of them. What are they forbidden for us to eat? Now, flesh is mentioned over here, but does it mean you can eat the bones?

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

No, you can't. When you slaughter an animal you don't slaughter to get the bones out of it. The main thing that you want out of an animal is what it's flesh and the bonds you may use them you may discard them

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

Isn't it so?

00:10:02 --> 00:10:12

So by saying the flesh the entire animal is meant, the entire animal is meant. And especially the context over here is of eating

00:10:13 --> 00:10:27

what you would eat as a main thing. So, the flesh of the pig, the skin of the pig, the bones, the tissue, the nerve fibers, the everything is involved in this. So well, Lindsey, even that is forbidden.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:32

Why Finzi? Why is it forbidden? Or why is this mentioned?

00:10:34 --> 00:10:41

Because we see that in many cultures, Kinsey the pig is considered to be of the animals of livestock.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:53

Which is why whenever you get a book that is about farms, even for little kids, you will see the cow you will see the goat and you will also see the pig. Always.

00:10:54 --> 00:11:09

Pigs are at farms, they are herbivores, they eat herbs, but they also eat. They also eat dead creatures. So they're not herbivores, actually, they're omnivores, okay, because they eat, they eat plants as well as other animals.

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

And there are many reasons why Allah subhanaw taala would forbid this creature on us

00:11:18 --> 00:11:20

why Allah would not allow us to eat it.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:25

And the more you study it, the more you are repulsed by it.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:42

There may be some benefits in it, which is why it is eaten in many cultures across the world. But like Allah says, with regards to alcohol, that were a small Guma at the bottom in nifer, Hema that the sin is greater than the benefit.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

The harm is more than the benefit.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:54

So because of that Allah has not allowed us to eat, cleanse, eat at all. Do you know of any reason why it's not allowed for us to eat?

00:11:55 --> 00:11:57

Yes, it lives in its own filth.

00:11:58 --> 00:11:59

What else

00:12:00 --> 00:12:04

it can eat pretty much anything quite literally.

00:12:06 --> 00:12:29

I was reading there these toilets that they had in India, I think now they have finished that system. And what they have done was that the toilet is such that there is a chute at the end of the toilet. And whatever is put into the toilet, it goes out the chute. And there are pigs over there that consume human feces.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:50

And it's like a pen that they have made where certain pigs are. And basically that's a very convenient way of getting rid of the filth, you have no water you have no flushing system, you have no drainage pipes, so just pigs over there. And as a result, all the impurities will be consumed by them.

00:12:51 --> 00:12:56

And the thing is that they will even eat their own feces. So you don't even have to worry about them.

00:12:58 --> 00:13:05

So how can we eat something that is like this, Allah tells us to eat that which is by him clean, how is it clean?

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

Any other reason? You know? Yes.

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

They can even eat human flesh human bones

00:13:14 --> 00:13:37

that their digestive system is not good that all the filth would actually come out of the body and is also said that they don't have sweat glands. So the impurity stay within the body. A lot of diseases passed on so there are many reasons and you know them. So remember whatever Allah has commanded, whatever he has forbidden, it is for a reason. So Allah he will concede and also the flesh of swine.

00:13:39 --> 00:14:04

Woman will heal up the healing lady Allah one more thing that Allah has forbidden is that woman and that witch healer? It was called loudly behaved with it the lady left for other than Allah. What does it mean by this? Oh, he left. This is from the root letters her lamb lamb. Any word that you can think of from this route? Hillel not halal? That's where the HA this is her okay. What is halal?

00:14:06 --> 00:14:19

The moon, the crescent when people see the crescent, then what happens? You have to announce it citing that it is Ramadan or it is read.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:43

So, sighting of the moon leads to noisemaking leads to announcements. It literally means refer. So to raise one's voice to raise one's voice from the same root is is the HAL Maloof when a child makes noise meaning when a child is born and he cries

00:14:44 --> 00:14:48

then if he dies after that cry, then he will be inherited from

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

and from the same route is also the word de Lille. daleel is to say the Tobia when you go for Ramadan when you go for Hajj to live, and how do you say Tobia

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

Make along LSAT critical and vague that how you say it, you're supposed to say it out loud.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:18

So the Helene say that there'll be so we see that all of these words that are related from the root hair lamb lamb, they give the meaning of raising one's voice pronouncing something announcing something.

00:15:20 --> 00:16:10

Oh Hitler, it was pronounced, be added meaning at the animal when it was being slaughtered. What was pronounced leave it left for other than Allah, meaning at the time when the animal was being slaughtered. Someone other than Allah was mentioned. Why? For the purpose of dedication, remember that when it comes to slaughter when it comes to slaughtering an animal, this is not the slaughtering of animals that you can eat out of it. It is actually an act of worship, it is actually a ritual. Allah says in the Quran that say in masala tea will no Sookie that say that my prayers and my nusach my sacrifice, my slaughter, what I slaughter, what a sacrifice are all for who? For Allah.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:48

So nusach slaughtering This is a ritual It is an act of worship. And this is not just in Islam. This is not just in Islam, you go back to the time of Jamelia, before Islam, the Arabs, when they would consume an animal, and they would slaughter it, they wouldn't mention at the time of slaughtering the name of the one for whose sake they were slaughtering the animal, the name of the one for whose sake they were slaughtering the animal. So for example, they would slaughter the animal and they would say bismi and let this meat

00:16:50 --> 00:16:54

and Latin Erza there were the two idols off the machine.

00:16:55 --> 00:17:34

Likewise, we see that there are people who want to slaughter an animal, they mentioned the name of, for example, Djibouti, or the Sunnah, that this is, for the sake of Gibreel, you know, to seek help from him to please Him, or they will mention the name of some shady lawn, or some saint or some pious person or companion of the Prophet saw a lot isn't my lead, although our annual Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam himself. So Allah says over here that any animal that was slaughtered and the name of other than Allah was mentioned at that time, can you eat it, you cannot eat it, it's not allowed for you to eat. Because you will only eat of that animal, which is sacrifice which is

00:17:34 --> 00:17:37

slaughtered for the sake of Allah alone.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:48

Now, Lira Allah other than Allah, it can be in many ways. First one, it could be that the name of Allah is mentioned and somebody else's name is also mentioned.

00:17:49 --> 00:18:08

So a person says, I slaughtered this for the sake of Allah and for the sake of His Messenger, I want to please Allah, I want to please as messenger, Allah and messenger, is that allowed? It's not allowed. The machine would say, for Allah and also for our idle allowed, not allowed.

00:18:09 --> 00:18:16

Secondly, it could be that the name of Allah is not mentioned at all the name of somebody else's mentioned.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:20

Is that permissible? Even that is not permissible.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:30

And delayed. Allah also includes the nothing is mentioned. Allah's name was not mentioned no one's name was mentioned. Is that allowed for you to eat? No.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:35

Well, Matt, will Hilary Healy lady Allah.

00:18:36 --> 00:19:13

Remember, slaughtering an animal is a ritual act of worship, and it has to be done only for Allah. If it's done for other than Allah, then that is shit. And we're not allowed to eat of that kosher meat. Why do some scholars say that it is permissible for us to eat it, because remember that there are different levels of Kosher different types of kosher and there's a paper that Jeff Yasaka he wrote recently on kosher foods, and I recommend that you find on the internet and read it. It's very important especially living in this society that we know about what is okay for a student what is not okay for us to eat. So anyway, the reason that is because they are very strict when it comes to

00:19:13 --> 00:19:49

slaughtering the animal, their method is very similar to ours in the sense that all the blood has to be drained, it has to be cut from a specific way at a specific point and they also mentioned the name of Allah. There is a particular statement that they utter, it's very long compared to just Bismillah it's very long. However, there is no shirk involved in that. And when they slaughter they do it for the sake of Allah and we know that we believe in the same Lord as them. So there is no shit involved over there. The method is the same so that's why it's okay. However, if you say that, okay, if Jews are okay, then you eat the food of the Christians as well. Then you have to be careful

00:19:49 --> 00:20:00

over there because they don't mention the name of Allah. If they say, mystery, mercy, for mercy for its RNA Salam, is that permissible? Not at all. Jews don't do that the Christians do

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

So that's where we're not going to eat that.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:33

And if people say that in the Quran Allah says that the food of the people of the book is permissible for you, then it doesn't talk about the meat that they eat or everything that they eat because in that way the Jews they consume alcohol. Can we consume alcohol? No, the Christians they consume pork, can we consume pork? No, we can't. So only that food of theirs is permissible, which is permissible for us as well. So even when it comes to animals, we will only eat that animal which they have slaughtered, if it's for the sake of Allah alone if it's slaughtered in the right way.

00:20:34 --> 00:21:17

Earlier a question was raised about if you get some meat from a person who has slaughtered an animal at the time of slaughtering, they mentioned the name of let's say Ali Lulu or say nobilo? Or they dedicate that animal for our leave for Hussein. That is that meat from a simple for us to eat? No, it's not. But that is when you know that yes, for sure they mentioned their name. But if it's just that you're assuming you're assuming that they might have then you don't assume like that. And remember that, you know, sometimes people say that, Oh, this is from the show, you're in the shower, so don't eat it at all. There are different types of Shira. Okay, there are different types of

00:21:17 --> 00:21:24

Shira. Some are very intense and others are not. So you have to see. Don't generalize.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:41

So do your research don't generalize anyway. So we read over here one that will Hilary Healy lady Allah, even that is not permissible. But what if a person is in a situation where all he can eat is haram food, otherwise he will literally die? Can he still not eat haram food?

00:21:42 --> 00:21:54

Allah says feminine totowa then whoever was compelled author robot, rah rah, dada, dada is harm. And it's the law is to compel to force someone to do that which they find harmful.

00:21:55 --> 00:21:59

Why would you have to force somebody to do something because they don't want to do it?

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

Why don't they want to do it? They find it difficult, or they think it's harmful for them. So whoever was compelled, forced, compelled into that situation. He was driven he was forced against his wishes into that situation, that he has to eat haram in order to protect his life. Then he may eat it. But there are two conditions. First of all, Leila Belkin and secondly, while Erden

00:22:30 --> 00:22:39

he should not eat as a belly and he should not eat it as a rd. What does he mean by Berlin? Berlin? Berlin. Yeah.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:42

Bali means rebellion.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:47

Rebellion, and also means to desire.

00:22:48 --> 00:22:51

Okay, it means rebellion. And it also means to desire

00:22:53 --> 00:23:29

so badly in one desiring, meaning he wants to he likes to eat that which is haram, even though he doesn't need to. So he says, I'm hungry. I didn't have breakfast this morning. And okay, the only options I have over here are a meat burger, or pasta with some meat, or pepperoni pizza. And that's all I can eat. So I'm going to eat it. I want to eat it anyway. So I'm hungry, so I might as well eat it.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

First of all, first of all,

00:23:34 --> 00:23:47

do you really have to eat? Do you really have to eat is a bura? It's not you skip your breakfast? Soon you'll be home within two or three hours. Can you not eat there? Can you not eat there? Yes, you can.

00:23:48 --> 00:24:07

Secondly, is that the only option that you have? No. If you don't find any Halal chicken, halal meat, then you have so many vegetarian options out there these days. And honestly, you know, when people become these vegetarians and these vegans, so many things have become highlighted for us and that way.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:28

So many processed foods are halal for us in that way. You know, there's a restaurant that I discovered, and it's all organic food all vegetarian, all vegetarian. I mean, they use alcohol in some stuff, but they're so particular about their ingredients that you can ask them, okay, what has alcohol what doesn't have alcohol, and you can find it.

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

You can find whatever you want to eat.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:49

So, is that the only option? No, you have so many options out there. I mean, even if you go to for example, a subway, you find chips, don't you? You find drinks. Don't think that the only option you have is to have that chicken sub. No, you have other options as well.

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

So little bell in a person must not eat the Haram with desire

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

that he wanted to eat it. So just finding an excuse.

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

And as soon as he gets it, he just goes on eating it little Belkin

00:25:04 --> 00:25:23

while are adding second condition while I that he should not eat it as an idol. And I didn't want to do that because I ended well and this can be understood to be the word or the one and or the one is to exceed bounds. So he is exceeding the bounds in eating the Haram in consuming the Haram howl

00:25:24 --> 00:25:32

that he's at the verge of dying. Literally, he's at the verge of dying. He's at the verge of passing out.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:45

Okay. He has the option of, let's say, eating a burger, a sandwich. And he knows that if he eats a bite or two, he'll survive.

00:25:46 --> 00:26:08

So he starts eating that sandwich he takes a bite or two and then he's like, you know, what I always wanted to try. One is we'll have the whole thing where one morsel two morsels can fulfill his little aura, then he should not exceed that limit. He should not go on to eating and eating and eating that I don't know when I'll be in the situation against might as well eat whatever I can

00:26:09 --> 00:26:13

know. Only eat as much as as necessary as much as will save you.

00:26:15 --> 00:26:22

When it comes to cure. When it comes to medicine, remember that there is no good in that which is halal.

00:26:24 --> 00:26:28

And haram, there is no Shiva. Because remember that Allah is the One who gives Chifa

00:26:30 --> 00:26:45

you can have all the medication out there. But if Allah does not wish to give you fat, you cannot have that Shiva aren't there so many people who try the same course. But some get cured and others don't. Why? Because a Shafi is Allah subhanaw taala Shafi is not the medicine

00:26:46 --> 00:26:50

so even when you're taking the medicine it should be that which is hello.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:10

So from an authorial lair Berlin Willa Arden Fela Ismar Lee then there is no sin on him what is ism Hamza Amin. ism is this feeling in your heart, which irritates your conscience, that you're doing it but you're very uncomfortable. You're very uncomfortable.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:25

So Allah says that if you're in a situation where you're at the verge of dying, that's the only option you have, then take as much as is necessary, not more than the need, and don't take it with desire, then don't feel guilty about it.

00:27:26 --> 00:27:39

Don't feel guilty about it for now. It's not really there is no sin on you for that. So we see here that Allah has permitted the consumption of haram in a situation where three conditions are met.

00:27:41 --> 00:27:44

First of all, Lulu dire need and necessity

00:27:46 --> 00:27:52

that if a person does not have the Haram then that's it. He's done. He would suffer adversely, he would die.

00:27:53 --> 00:28:13

So in that situation in the state of Baroda, a person may consume haram. Secondly, that he doesn't eat while desiring to eat it. Meaning, even when he's eating that haram, he dislikes what he's eating. He's not enjoying it. He's not relishing it rather, he dislikes it.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:19

And thirdly, he doesn't exceed the amount that would fulfill the bura.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:28

So for that, it's not really there is no sin upon him. And a person should remember that in Allah have a photo for him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:28:29 --> 00:28:33

When do we think that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful when we're doing something wrong?

00:28:34 --> 00:28:51

When we're doing something wrong, we say ALLAH is forgiving merciful. Over here Allah is saying, in the situation of dire need, you may eat haram, without any guilt. And remember that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Allah knows your intention. Have you not heard the Hadith in the Malama? Lavinia yet? Everyone knows about it.

00:28:53 --> 00:29:01

So when it comes to consuming haram in the time of extreme need over there also your intention matters a lot with what Nia are you eating?

00:29:03 --> 00:29:12

Now many times people confuse this with other situations. They say, you know, if you can't find halal meat and eat haram, eat whatever is available to you.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:34

These days, you can find halal meat at so many places. And if you cannot find meat, there are so many other options. So many vegetables and so many meat alternatives. I mean, tofu and so many things are out there that you can eat, which will help you maintain good health even if you're not able to eat red meat all the time.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:53

I have a relative and they live in a place in the US which is far away from any Muslim population. That city itself is very, very small. And they can't find any halal meat over there. So every other weekend, they go to the nearest city, a big city and they go and buy a whole lot of halal meat and they bring it on the store in their freezers and that's what they use.

00:29:55 --> 00:29:57

So don't generalize this.

00:29:58 --> 00:30:00

And there are times when

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

People are in such desperate situations that a person could be lost in the desert of resin could be lost somewhere. So, in that situation you have to eat something to keep yourself alive because remember the McCaskill cedera What are the preservation of human life?

00:30:17 --> 00:30:18


00:30:21 --> 00:30:22


00:30:27 --> 00:30:28


00:30:40 --> 00:30:41

is now

00:30:44 --> 00:30:48

a lot of walking

00:30:50 --> 00:30:54

now as I mentioned to you earlier over here the list of haram food is not mentioned

00:30:55 --> 00:31:02

over here they're mentioned only briefly the rest of them inshallah we will learn about as we study the Quran

00:31:03 --> 00:31:46

in the medina Yorkstone Amma Anza Allah indeed those people who can see you the extra Munna from Katana, what do they hide my hands of Allah what Allah has revealed what Allah has sent down? And what is it that Allah has sent down, menial Kitab off the book, the book that Allah has revealed whether it is the Quran, or it is the thorough or it is the Injeel any book that Allah revealed, and those people who concealed it, and then when they concealed it, they hid what Allah revealed. They hid the commands, they hid the prohibitions, they hid the truth from the people. And by that they achieved some benefit. They got something by concealing knowledge. What is it that they got? Were

00:31:46 --> 00:31:51

storeowner be feminine kalila were storeowner and they purchase they take Shinola?

00:31:53 --> 00:32:22

What do they take b by eight meaning by hiding the truth. They get Thurman and Khalil and a small price, a petty price. The man Sammy noon, and Khalil Coughlin law, we have done all of these words before, so I'm not going to explain them over here. So they hide the truth. And by hiding the truth, they're getting some advantage. And what is that advantage? Some of them kalila? What could it be? What is the mean by this?

00:32:23 --> 00:32:30

We learned about this earlier as well that a person who hides what Allah has revealed the truth and that is a great crime. What's the punishment for that?

00:32:31 --> 00:32:50

What's the punishment for that? The Curse of Allah, the curse of a Larry noon. And over here, we see that they hide the truth, but by hiding, they're actually getting some benefit, some worldly benefit. What is that worldly benefit? It could be acceptance amongst the people.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:55

It could be that people like you, they appreciate you.

00:32:57 --> 00:33:42

We see that. Allah subhanaw taala revealed the shittier to Musa Sinha he gave him the commands of what was halal for the people what was haram for the people. But we know that as time goes by people drift away from the religion, they lose their spirituality, they lose their fear of Allah, then what happens they want to make that which is haram halal for themselves. Which is why for example, you will find beverages that are with alcoholic names but they are non alcoholic. Why? Because people have this likeness for that which is haram. They like the develop love for attraction for that which is home. And then people go to the extent of making haram Halal through whatever ways that they want

00:33:42 --> 00:33:42


00:33:44 --> 00:33:48

So for example, the Bani Israel they were told you cannot fish on the Sabbath. What did they do?

00:33:49 --> 00:33:55

They put out nuts on Friday took them out on Sunday, so they came up with ways to make haram halal for themselves.

00:33:56 --> 00:34:00

Now, what was the responsibility of their scholars

00:34:01 --> 00:34:05

that they should tell the people that what you're doing is wrong.

00:34:06 --> 00:34:10

You should not consume that food because it is not allowed for us to eat.

00:34:11 --> 00:34:21

However, if everybody's consuming haram and you go and tell them you don't eat this, aren't you going to look like the bad guy? Like a person who is running the party?

00:34:22 --> 00:34:32

A person who's always has to do something different? Always as to you know, create trouble for people always has to make other people look bad. You will look like that.

00:34:34 --> 00:34:41

So if you know the truth and you see people doing something wrong, but you don't tell them about the truth, what are you gaining by that?

00:34:42 --> 00:34:49

acceptance of people, that people will accept you they will like you they will be okay with you.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:55

And a person who has knowledge, he is at a very, very big risk.

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

Very big risk because on the one

00:35:00 --> 00:35:11

In the hand, he has to fear Allah and declare the truth. On the other hand, he has this fear that people will oppose me. Because truth hurts. Some people don't want to hear the truth. They don't want to know the truth. They don't want to live it.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:31

So, at this time, the one who has been given knowledge has to be very careful. am I hiding the truth, just out of fear of people, just so that I can net someone and kalila just so that I can make some money, just so that people will like me, so that they will give me gifts, they will say I'm the best caller out there.

00:35:32 --> 00:35:33


00:35:34 --> 00:35:59

a person should have fear of Allah. Because those people who do this, they hide the truth, and they take benefit in return. Allah says, Hola, Iike those people may Corona, feeble Tony him ill and now my Hakuna they're not consuming. They're not eating feeble Tony him in their bellies, but on his Florida button in their stomachs, they're not putting anything except what are now the fire.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:18

So for example, something is haram and they tell the people No, no, it's halal. You can eat it. And the people bring them gifts. And the people give them money. They make money through religion. So what happens whatever money that they use to get food or whatever money they're using, all of that is what in reality, Allah says it's fire.

00:36:19 --> 00:36:24

Any gain that you get through haram means what is it in reality?

00:36:26 --> 00:36:34

It is fire. If a person steal somebody's property, and they're eating it, they're using it. What are they playing with fire?

00:36:35 --> 00:36:37

It is the fire of *.

00:36:39 --> 00:36:53

If a person steal somebody's property, and they're using it, it's not that they have a phone No, it's not they have somebody else's book now somebody else's notes now they have actually taken a piece of Hellfire for themselves.

00:36:54 --> 00:36:58

Hola Iike. Mejia Kelowna people Tony him ill enough

00:36:59 --> 00:37:10

people who manipulate others and they use the religion. They corrupt the religion for worldly benefits. What are they taking hellfire?

00:37:11 --> 00:37:20

They don't speak out the truth for worldly benefits. What are they choosing for themselves hellfire? Allah eco ma Karuna if you bought only him in the na

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

wala you can Lima whom Allah and Allah will not even speak to them. cataflam mean Kalam to talk Allah who will not even talk to them. When yarmulke Yama on the day of gentlemen, just imagine

00:37:38 --> 00:37:45

Allah refuses, refuses to talk to a person on the Day of Judgment.

00:37:47 --> 00:37:59

Has it ever happened to you that you want to talk to someone but they're so upset that they don't even answer you? They don't even look at you. They don't even respond to you. How do you feel?

00:38:00 --> 00:38:07

Broken, rejected. And that feeling of rejection? It makes you so sad

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

when in this dunya what happens if one person is upset with you? They don't talk to you're like okay, fine, nevermind I have so many other people to talk to. I'll do something else.

00:38:17 --> 00:38:20

But if on the Day of Judgment, Allah does not talk to a person.

00:38:21 --> 00:38:43

Then what does he have? Where can he go? What can bring him comfort nothing can for that person is hellfire. Whenever you can Lima whom Allah Who yo will piano and when he goes into hellfire, while I use a key him Allah will not even purify them does Kia zaika yet or well purification Allah will not purify them.

00:38:44 --> 00:38:52

When we commit sins, we become filthy, we become dirty, and on the Day of Judgment, through the difficulties of Hashem Of The Day of Gathering.

00:38:53 --> 00:39:21

Either because of that, we are purified or when a person goes to hellfire, he suffers the punishment then he is purified. But we see that these people even though they may suffer a lot of difficulties on the Day of Judgment, it will not purify them, even though they may suffer years and years and hellfire they will never ever come up clean. Why? Because they have become inherently filthy. Inherently filthy, inherently dirty.

00:39:22 --> 00:39:28

There's some things that you can clean and there are other things that you cannot clean, aren't there?

00:39:29 --> 00:39:34

If you have a piece of cloth that has become dirty, can you clean it? Yes, you can.

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

Even if you can't remove the stain, can you get the filth off? Yes you can.

00:39:40 --> 00:39:59

But filth in and of itself. How can you clean that? You can't clean it because it is filthy. You can't clean it. No matter how much you try to clean it. You can't it will always be dirty because its characteristics. Its traits are all filth. It's composed of filth. It is filth. It's nothing but fill

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


00:40:01 --> 00:40:10

So while I use a key Him, He will not even purify them. Well whom are there one, and for them is a punishment. That is a Lehmann that is very painful.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:15

What's the relationship of this verse with the previous one?

00:40:16 --> 00:40:20

Measures of halal and haram. They're very sensitive.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:23

It's a big issue in our religion.

00:40:24 --> 00:40:32

Because when you eat halal, you are worshipping Allah. Or when you eat haram, you are disobeying Allah.

00:40:33 --> 00:40:49

Through eating, a person can commit shink by eating that which was slaughtered for other than Allah, or by slaughtering something for other than Allah, or he can practice the heat by slaughtering something for the sake of Allah, He can be grateful to Allah He can be ungrateful to eating is something that's very major.

00:40:50 --> 00:40:52

It's not something that's insignificant.

00:40:53 --> 00:40:54


00:40:55 --> 00:41:02

eating is all something that people are very sensitive about. Food is something that people are very sensitive about.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:13

If you tell somebody who's having coke don't have that it's not good for your body. What will they say? Mind your own business? Please? Let me have it. Who are you to dictate what I eat what I don't eat.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:21

If you tell somebody you're always eating, they tell you so what if you told somebody eat something they said, I don't want to eat don't force me,

00:41:22 --> 00:41:29

isn't it? People are very sensitive when it comes to eating. People have their choices, their likes, their dislikes.

00:41:30 --> 00:41:39

And we see that just because people are sensitive. Just because people don't like to hear certain things does not mean we don't tell them.

00:41:40 --> 00:41:51

We have to tell them, we have to tell them. Because if we don't tell them, they could be disobeying Allah, they could be eating haram, they could be committing Sheikh.

00:41:53 --> 00:41:56

So when somebody tells us about Halal haram, we should not get offended.

00:41:58 --> 00:42:15

And if we know what Halal haram, then we should not fear when we have to tell other people about it. Because if we hide the truth, and we gain some worldly advantage out of it, acceptance money, then this is something that's not right, because it has severe consequences on the Day of Judgment, painful punishment in the hereafter.

00:42:16 --> 00:42:21

Allah will not talk to such people, you knew the truth and you didn't tell people and you made money out of it.

00:42:22 --> 00:42:25

You took advantage of other people's ignorance.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:45

And we see that it's because of this reason that the companions of the Prophet salallahu Salam, they conveyed the truth, they didn't want to hide the truth. So they conveyed it, even if other people would find it difficult to hear it. Even if they did not want to know about it. They conveyed the truth. So on us is the same responsibility.

00:42:46 --> 00:42:55

If people don't want to hear it, tell them in a way that is nice. Tell them in a way that is gentle change your manner, but don't change the truth.

00:42:56 --> 00:42:59

Change your manner, but don't change the truth.

00:43:00 --> 00:43:09

And here we see that concealing knowledge has been mentioned. People conceal the truth for many reasons. It could be selfishness.

00:43:10 --> 00:43:22

It could be stinginess, it could be greed, that I don't want other people to know as much as I know, I want to be the most knowledgeable person. Whatever reason it may be, this is wrong.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:55

When we know something, it is our responsibility that we tell them. And when a person tells the truth, then this is such a virtuous deed. In a hadith we learned that indeed Allah, His angels, the dwellers of the heavens and the earth, even the ants, even the ants, what do they do and even the fish, they pray for the one who teaches people about good things. The one who spreads the truth imagine everything every creation likes him and the one who conceals the truth, then every creation hits him.

00:43:57 --> 00:44:24

Hola, Iike. Those are the ones who are Lavina they are those who estado Bala lettable who that they have purchased misguidance for guidance, they have taken misguidance and they have given up guidance. And they have taken well are there and the punishment will mafia or instead of forgiveness, look at what they took and look at what they gave up. They took punishment. And they took misguidance and they gave up what guidance and they gave up forgiveness.

00:44:25 --> 00:44:36

When a person spreads knowledge when a person spreads the truth, then he's rightly guided and for this he will be forgiven his other sins will be forgiven. It's a source of many virtuous deeds.

00:44:37 --> 00:44:59

And when a person conceals the truth, then that is what misguidance misguiding other people as well and that results in punishment. Allah says firmer are spot on Marland now, so how patient Are they over the fire? They know that their endless fire but look at them how patient they are. Look at them How daring they are from Atlas bottle Marlon now

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

Oh, ma spa this is their job. This is expressing amazement. How patient they are. Wow. It's sarcasm. Okay. It's sarcasm. So for now, Osvaldo Humala now how patient they are over the fire. Do they even realize what they are taking what they're opting for?

00:45:24 --> 00:45:36

Their Lika that is B and Allah Nazir al Kitab will help because Allah has revealed the book in truth Nasrallah Nunes ALA, this book that Allah has revealed, he has revealed that in truth,

00:45:37 --> 00:45:47

Allah has not revealed it with falsehood. No, every part of the book that Allah has revealed is truth, it has to be followed, it has to be observed, it has benefits in it for people.

00:45:49 --> 00:45:51

The book of ALLAH does not contain falsehood.

00:45:52 --> 00:45:57

So when it has the truth, then the truth must be declared it must be informed.

00:45:58 --> 00:46:17

What in the livina, tele Fu and indeed those people who have different Hall amfa If the laughter differ, to have differences, so those people who differ feel keytab concerning the book, which book the book that Allah has revealed? And what's the difference that people have concerning the book, some believe others don't.

00:46:18 --> 00:46:34

And also, of the biggest if the left is interpretations, that people get firm on their own interpretation. They say no, this is the right way. No, this is the right way. Now that is the wrong way. No, that is the wrong way every person thinks what they're doing what they understand is, right.

00:46:35 --> 00:46:43

And those who get lost in this ft laugh, whose hum and hum whose main focus in their life becomes this empty laugh.

00:46:44 --> 00:47:04

What the So and so say and what does that person say? We're in the love enough to fulfill Kitab Allah says they are official clock and buried. They are in an extreme dissension. Shut up Shiva cough, we have done this word earlier. She caught us what dissension? When people are split apart, broken apart.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:10

They are different. They have gone different ways very far away.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:26

You know, what if there's a road, and then it separates? One goes one way and the other goes the other way. Eventually, people who were on the same road are now miles and miles apart. Because both went in opposite directions.

00:47:27 --> 00:47:39

Both took different roads. So those who fall into differences concerning the book, then what happens? They are far away from the guidance. They go far away from the truth.

00:47:40 --> 00:47:42

Why is this being mentioned over here?

00:47:44 --> 00:47:51

The thing is that when it comes to Halal haram, you will see a lot of differences amongst the people, even amongst the Muslims.

00:47:53 --> 00:48:01

One person says is halal and says no, It's haram. There is this what is halal versus no, even a little quantity is haram, you will see a lot of differences.

00:48:02 --> 00:48:25

What are we supposed to do? Should we get caught up in all of these differences? And start debating and start arguing and start refuting other people? Because we think if you're religious, then you know about what is haram? What is halal. And you know about all of those ingredients that go into products. And we think this is religiosity. All of this is not religiosity, religion is much more than that.

00:48:26 --> 00:48:38

And based on these issues, we should not start opposing one another. We should have respect for each other. Because those who get caught up in these differences. They're the ones who go far away from the truth.

00:48:39 --> 00:48:50

We see for example, even today, there are scholars who will differ concerning certain fifth opinions. Some will say this is halal and other was said is haram, but they will still have respect for each other.

00:48:52 --> 00:49:29

But we tend to hate other people who follow a different opinion than ours. We hate them. They have their evidence. Okay, you might not agree with it. But don't start hating them. Don't start refuting them in every situation is to accept them the way they are. And when you know the truth when you know that the lien then you tell them and also remember that when you find out about a deal and evidence that tells you something is halal or something is haram. Then accept it. Don't get stuck up in your opinion that you don't want to move from there even though you know the truth.

00:49:30 --> 00:49:52

Because it happens for example, always been told it's quite possible that no no kosher you don't eat you don't eat kosher you don't eat kosher. And if for example, you do some research and you find out that certain types of Kosher are okay for you to consume, then don't reject that just because you were brainwashed from your childhood that you don't eat that once you know some evidence that accept it.

00:49:54 --> 00:50:00

Because remember, in normal our Merleau Binny Yet Allah will question you about

00:50:00 --> 00:50:10

Your intentions about your reactions, but how you behaved, but how you dealt with such situations? How you respected one another or you didn't do so.

00:50:12 --> 00:50:16

Where Allah will question you about what you ate. He will also ask you about how you ate.

00:50:17 --> 00:50:28

How you fought how you argued how you learned that when you learned something, what did you do with it? Did you stay firm on something just because you were doing it always or did you accept the truth openly?

00:50:29 --> 00:50:31

Let's listen to the recitation

00:50:32 --> 00:50:36

in Lavina, head to moon

00:50:40 --> 00:50:40


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


00:50:50 --> 00:50:53

colonna few more morning

00:50:57 --> 00:50:58

long way a woman who?

00:51:09 --> 00:51:10


00:51:12 --> 00:51:12


00:51:24 --> 00:51:25

long as

00:51:26 --> 00:51:30

they've been comfortable, we're in the new

00:51:32 --> 00:51:34

be in a free ship all the

00:51:40 --> 00:51:45

stuff from the verses that we studied today? What lessons do we learn? Eat that which is

00:51:46 --> 00:51:58

halal. Eat that which is good. Good for you. So don't just eat blindly eat that which is good for you. So research about the food that you're eating.

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

The question is that when it comes to for example, kosher meat, can you eat it anytime, even when you have Halal options, or can you only eat it in times when you have no other option? You can eat at any time. Because if it's permissible, then it's permissible anytime.

00:52:18 --> 00:52:23

Subhanak alone will be handy Kenisha to Allah Illa Illa antenna stuffy we're going to be like Santa Monica.
