Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim Yes, Aluna currently a healer. They ask you about the new moons on here malarkey to the NASCI will Hajj say they are measurements of time for the people and for Hajj. Now, yes. Aluna can they ask you, the Sahaba would ask the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, many different types of questions, but we know that the way that they would ask him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very respectful, and they would not harass him. And they would only ask for the purpose of almond for the purpose of action. Because in the first is through the story of the cow, we learned about how we should not ask unnecessary questions, because that shows that, you know, people

00:00:54 --> 00:01:41

are just interested in talking and chatting, they're not interested in actually doing something. And when someone has asked too many questions, then, you know, it can be kind of annoying for them as well. So the Sahaba were aware that they should only ask about matters that are practical. So Allah subhanaw taala mentions some of those questions in the Quran. And in Surah Baqarah we will come across this word many times now. Yes. Aluna. Can they ask you, they ask you? So they would ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not answer from his own, you know whims, because when they're young to Coronel Hawa, he did not speak of his

00:01:41 --> 00:02:31

own desire, in who are in our hearing you have, it is only revelation that is inspired to him. So he would only give the answer if something had been revealed concerning it. And a lot of times revelation would be given in response to a scenario in response to a question that someone would ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And you see, this is why the Quran was revealed over 23 years. And this is why the Quran is so practical, any we can understand how to apply every idea, because it was revealed, according to different contexts, different situations. So they ask you about the crescent moons. Now, what is it exactly that they asked the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa

00:02:31 --> 00:03:20

sallam about the crescent moons? We don't know what exact question they asked, but from what we can understand from this idea, and also knowing the background, the context, at the time, people had, you know, certain superstitious beliefs when it came to the moon. And if you think about it, these superstitious beliefs regarding the moon exist, even today, you know, just this morning, I was looking for an image where you could see all the different stages of the moon, I wanted to show it to you. And I found a really good image where they showed, you know, different phases of the moon. And it was so clear, so nice. But then there was, you know, weird kind of a symbol in the middle of

00:03:20 --> 00:04:10

that image. And because that image was actually made by this website that you know, talks about magic and spells and things like that. And for every image of the moon, every stage of the moon, you know, they had mentioned what kind of spells what kind of, you know, magic will be most effective, etc. Any people at the time of the Prophet sallallahu already was alone in Jamelia, pre Islam. They had superstitious beliefs regarding the moon. And even today, you know, people have strange beliefs regarding the moon. So the Sahaba asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the crescent moons that what's the reality of the moon? Does it really determine our fate? Does the changing

00:04:10 --> 00:04:58

appearance of the moon happen because of, you know, the stories that we've been told? Why does the moon change even how come the moon has the cyclical appearance basically. So the Sahaba asked the Prophet sallallahu earlier said know about the reality, the purpose, the wisdom of the crescent moons, and notice how it has been said a healer because he learned is either at the beginning of the month or at the end of the month, right? So they're basically asking about the cyclical appearance, that how it goes through a cycle, right? That the beginning you see it as a crescent, and then it continues to grow until it becomes full in the middle of the month, and then it begins to wane, it

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

begins to shrink.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:49

Alright, until it again appears as a crescent, and then it disappears from the sky completely. And then the whole cycle begins again. Right and this cycle takes anywhere between 29 or 30 days. So sometimes the month is off 29 days sometimes it is a 30 days. And you know, in different cultures, different parts of the world, people have different stories about the cyclical appearance of the moon. So those Sahaba asked the Prophet sallallahu already said that, what is this exactly? What's the wisdom? Right? So, Allah subhanaw taala reveals the answer that goal you say here Milwaukee to the NASS they are a means of telling time for the people, any the cyclical appearance of the moon of

00:05:49 --> 00:06:42

the crescent. This is like a universal calendar. So if you think about it, the sun works like a clock. Right? So you're able to tell what time of day it is by looking at the sun, and the moon works like a calendar. So you're able to make sense of what time of month it is, or based on the number of months that have passed. What time of year it is by looking at the moon. So call here MOBA Ketola NASCI ne This is the hikma This is the wisdom behind the changing appearance of the moon that it is a means of telling time and this is so true, any we need some you know calendar to be able to figure out what time it is so that we can determine many things related to our deen and also our

00:06:42 --> 00:07:32

dunya you know for example, it is the lunar calendar on which for example, there is the waiting period of a woman that he dad, the waiting period after the death of the husband any four months and 10 days that is based on the lunar calendar, right when it comes to the ages of people. So for example at age seven child should begin to pray at age 10 They should be praying all five. Again that is based on the lunar calendar, okay? Not the solar calendar. So on here Marathi solidness, and for so many worldly affairs, also worldly matters also, any you need to know what time of year it is to plan and to take action. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in Surah trc 939 that will come out of a

00:07:32 --> 00:08:28

donor who Manasa zeal and the moon we have determined for it phases and he this is divine planning. Allah subhanaw taala has made this calendar for us that is universal that you can access from any part of the world. So yes, Aluna Cardinal, a healer, call here malarkey to leanness and the moon, the crescent, it is of the signs of Allah. And we rely on the sighting of the moon for the beginning of the month of Ramadan, the end of the month of Ramadan, and especially when Hajj specifically when it comes to the beginning of Hajj, the month of hajj, the days of Hajj for that the mood is especially important. Okay, so call him our Ketola NASCI will hatch and then it is said when a cell

00:08:28 --> 00:09:24

Bill Ruby and tool boo you Tamiflu rehab. And it is not righteousness to enter houses from the back. But when I Kindle Billa money taka but righteousness is of or is in the one who fears Allah, another superstitious belief that the people of the time head is being debunked over here. You see different groups of Arabs different tribes basically had different practices. Okay, so it is said that some people from the unsolved the residents of Medina, who also used to worship the idle minutes, they had this tradition, this custom that if, for example, someone left their house in order to make the Hajj in order to go to Makkah and then for some reason they had to return, they had to return home

00:09:24 --> 00:09:59

because they forgot something or they had to return home because they were no longer able to continue the journey of Hajj then they wouldn't enter the house from the proper door from the proper entrance. Rather what they would do is that they would enter the house from the back. So for example, if there was a wall in the back of the house, they would climb over it. Okay. And if you think about it, this is something very inconvenient. And he imagine you have just returned from a journey and you're not entering your house from the main door you were climbing over a wall

00:10:00 --> 00:10:49

So why would they do that? Because of their superstitious beliefs, okay, that once you leave for Hajj then you only enter your house after completing the Hajj, if you have not completed the Hajj then you cannot enter your house from the main door you have to enter from the back. Okay? Or it is said that they had this belief that nothing should come between your head and the sky. Okay, so if you enter through the door, you're going to enter through a doorframe, basically. And then there's going to be something that is above your head that is coming between the sky and your head, basically. Right? So in the State of Iran, you cannot do that. And Subhan Allah, so many Muslims

00:10:49 --> 00:11:38

also hold such beliefs, right? Especially when it comes to Hajj and Umrah, the restrictions of hygiene or umbra. He they're so clear, and they're so practical, but when people don't know what the truth is, then they come up with weird things in order to make their life difficult. You know, for example, a woman in a haram okay, we learned that she should not wear the niqab. The niqab is particularly a face veil, right. So, that is something clearly mentioned in Hadith. Now, I shall do a lot more on her, she explained that what they would do is that they would have their faces uncovered, but then when, you know, some men would come by they will draw their veil on their face.

00:11:39 --> 00:12:28

Okay. So like that they would not be constantly wearing the niqab. But when there was a need, they would draw a part of their female in front of their face, so that the men who were not supposed to see them would not see their faces. So I show the law more and I explained how practically they would observe the restrictions of your home and I have seen with my own eyes, a special kind of a hatch, okay, that women are told to wear during a haram which is such that, you know, the niqab will fall down from the head and it will not touch the face. And the whole idea is that nothing should be touching the face. Well, where did you get that from that nothing should be touching the face that

00:12:28 --> 00:12:49

is not mentioned in the Sunnah, that is not mentioned in the Quran, that is not a restriction of Iran. So it's very important that when we go for Hajj, when we go for Ramadan, we should know what the proper rules of Iran are, what the exact restrictions are, what is it exactly that we're not supposed to do? And what is it that we are allowed to do?

00:12:50 --> 00:13:36

Because when we are ignorant of the rules, we begin inventing things, and we make our lives difficult and we make the lives of other people difficult. And we think that in difficulty is more religiosity and hence more reward and that is not the case. That is not the case because this difficulty is based on ignorance, and how could there be more reward on something that is based on ignorance. Likewise, when it comes to discontinuing your Hajj or Umrah because of whatever reason, then there is a proper way and inshallah we will learn about that. It doesn't mean that you can't enter your house through the proper door. So before the details of hygiene, arugula are mentioned,

00:13:36 --> 00:14:26

some myths and some superstitious beliefs are being debunked over here. So when they sell beer will be entitled to YouTube and so who the * that is not piety? Well, I cannot be Romany taco pieties of the person who truly fears Allah. And who is the one who truly fears Allah, the One who first of all finds out what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded and what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden, and then he does his best to observe those rules properly. So the foundation of Taqwa is okay. The foundation of Taqwa is real, it is knowledge. And the person who observes that properly, that is a person who is truly righteous when I came on Bidra many of you may have experienced this or notice

00:14:26 --> 00:14:59

this in other aspects of your life as well not just when it comes to hygiene, but other aspects as well. You know, for example, women when it comes to the end of their menstrual cycle, and they're taking a bath, for the purpose of purification, any all they need to do is just have the intention of purity, and that intention is where it is in the heart. And then you just take the whistle and for the whistle there are, you know, clear guidelines in the Sunnah that the entire body has to be washed, especially paying attention to the hair on the head.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:51

that has to be thoroughly washed. I remember someone telling me that every time they take their whistle, they recite Surah Fatiha 10 times. And so the last 10 times and suited a NAS and many other soldiers and many daraz any, they read them a certain number of times, and then they take their bath. And then after taking their bath again, they read a whole lot of stuff. And that is not a requirement. That is not a requirement. Any there is so much innovation in the religion. Okay, so many things that people have invented in the name of piety. And these innovations basically, are because people don't know what they're supposed to do. Right? These innovations are founded upon

00:15:51 --> 00:16:36

ignorance. And this idea that religion is supposed to be hard. And they're supposed to be a lot of hard work. And they're supposed to be a lot of effort. And that's not always the case. So what I Kingdom Biller, many tougher than it is said, What tool do you Tim in Abu Dhabi have an enter the houses from their doors? What does this mean? That if you have to go back home, you know, for example, you left for Hajj, and you need to go back home in order to pick something up, you forgot? Well enter the house from the proper door. All right. Or if you have discontinued your HUD your love for whatever reason, and now you have to go back home, well enter the house from the proper door,

00:16:36 --> 00:17:28

what tool we'll use them in Abu Dhabi hub. And in general, also we can understand from this part of the idea that enter the houses from their doors, is that we should do things the right way. You know, do things the right way, learn what the right way is. And then do that. Don't overcomplicate things, and don't engage in innovation. What will be your time in Abu Dhabi and do things the easy way the right way, especially when that has been specified? In Arabic, it is said at Al Batum. In Babbie, the person entered the house from its door, meaning this is an expression which is not to be taken literally what it means is that he did it the right way. Atal Batum in Bobby, meaning he did

00:17:28 --> 00:18:19

what he did the right way. He did it as it is supposed to be done. And a lot of times when we don't access things from the right way, you know, or in the right way. So for example, if you have a question, okay to ask, let's say an institute. All right, you have a question. So you call them and the person that you speak to does not give you a satisfactory answer. Okay. Now, what are you supposed to do in order to get the answer that you want? Get the answer that you're seeking, a lot of people will turn towards social media, they will make a Facebook post that, oh, I call this place. And I asked this question, and this is what they said, and how rude. Okay, and then what's

00:18:19 --> 00:19:06

gonna happen in response to that Facebook post that everybody will start sharing their miserable experiences, all right, and you're not solving the problem? You're not getting the answer. You could have directed that effort into finding the email address of that Institute, and sending them an email, officially making a complaint. All right, that you called and you did not get a satisfactory answer. Or perhaps you don't even have to do that. Maybe you just go on their website, and open up the FAQs. And you will find the answer the question right there in the answer right there. Right? Any sometimes we want to solve the problem, but we don't really want to solve it. All right. And we

00:19:06 --> 00:19:51

are harming ourselves. And we're also hiring so many other people we're creating Pfitzner right. So access things the right way. And there's always a right way to access you know, different things. Likewise, you know, sometimes someone is interested in marrying someone, what is the right way of you know, talking to them sliding into their DMS, know how you do that, especially if you know them personally, if you know their family personally, if you know someone who can get you in touch with their family. That is the proper way. Right? You want to propose to a woman for instance, you don't go and bother her and harass her, you will speak to her family. So what to do U turn in Abu Dhabi

00:19:51 --> 00:19:59

here. Anytime that you want to do something you want to access something, access it the right way, sometimes will become passive

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

Have aggressive, you know, we have a complaint, we have an issue with someone in the family, instead of talking to them, what are we going to do? We're going to talk to everyone else, instead of communicating with them that, hey, this is bothering me, we will be passive aggressive, and we will be throwing dishes and we'll be stomping around the house and we're in a bad mood. We're not solving anything. We're not accessing the house through its door. So what tools do you have in Abu Dhabi? And you see doing things the right way is so much more easier than doing them in a more complicated way in the wrong way. Think about it when you enter the house through the main door. Isn't that so

00:20:43 --> 00:21:24

simple, just turn the knob, enter, close. But if you enter from the back, I don't know if you've ever had to do that. If the front door is locked, you don't have the keys. What do you do you go to the back of the house, you try every window, right? You see if there's a window that is unlocked, maybe you find a basement window that is unlocked. And then you tell someone to you know, somehow get inside any it's all extra effort. And you have to make things so difficult for yourself. It's so hard. So do things the right way, What tool do you determine about why the * and in general also, we should understand that just because we're doing something religious, it doesn't mean that it has

00:21:24 --> 00:22:16

to be super complicated, and very, very hard. Okay, in fact, it's the exact opposite the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in the Dena use throne, the religion is easy. So it's practical. It's easy. Don't complicate it. And when you share the deen, a hidden inner vulnerable and no one will make the religion hard on himself except that he will be defeated. Any he will not be able to, you know carry on like that for long. So What tool do you have in Abu Dhabi, her what the Kola and fear Allah La La come to flee home in order that you may be successful. So fear Allah, that is bit that is piety, fear Allah, meaning do things the right way. That is piety. Learn the

00:22:16 --> 00:22:46

come to flee home, then you will be successful. Any if you want to achieve your goals, then do things the right way. You know, for example, if you want an answer to a question, then go ask that question. Okay. Don't create multiple Facebook posts and create a fitna and a storm. That's not going to lead you to success. If you want success then do things the right way. What the Allah Allah Allah come to flee Hoon and have fear of Allah
