The issue of being steadfast upon this religion is a very, very important matter. In fact, it is the person who actually lives in this West, that actually knows what I really mean by being steadfast upon the religion. You see, there are 1001 distractions out there 1001, no press 1002. Now, even more, there are so many distractions, whether it be for the youth, whether it be for the old, whether it be sex, whether it be drugs, whether they be rock and roll, there are so many distractions out there, he it is very difficult to have true is the karma to be truly steadfast upon this religion.

00:02:31--> 00:03:16

In fact, many times, you know, when I'm in Medina, and then I come back every year, I find certain brothers have left the religion and I find as well certain brothers have entered the religion. So, this issue of is the karma, issue of st karma upon the religion of being steadfast upon the religion is quite quite difficult is and at the same time, therefore, it is quite important. However, the reward for being steadfast upon the religion is tremendous, the reward for actually holding on to the religion, of knowing what you know, and then after afterwards holding on to what you know, and practicing your religion even though the things against it as the odds against it are so high. So

00:03:16--> 00:03:42

the rewards are also so high. rewards are also tremendous. Do you know what the rewards are? You asked me what the reward is.

Now, they remain steadfast upon that, even though people came and said, except our religion, no Christians came, and they knocked on the door and said, Hey, except Jesus, except Jesus, and the and then and then you'll be guided, even though the woman came and said, Hey, I'm to you, and you

And so too, there will be a friend in the Hereafter, and they give you the glad tidings of paradise. So you're actually what is this is the karma? What is this being steadfast upon the religion? What are we talking about? What are we talking about? Is

00:08:07--> 00:08:10

the karma. Is is Allah subhanaw taala had said,

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

struck him come up with

00:08:14--> 00:08:58

another verse, he said, For stuck in Come on earth. And what it means is that be steadfast upon the religion, as you have been told by Allah, be steadfast upon the religion, as you have been told by Allah. So how has Allah told us? How has Allah subhana wa Taala told us to be upon this religion? Well, you see, one of the most important things Allah subhanaw taala had told us to remain steadfast opponents religion, is to stay away from whatever the shaitaan calls us to, and whatever leads on to the way of the shutdown. And what are those things that lead to the way of the shaitaan? Well, you see Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you're Latina, or you believe that who

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

don't follow the footsteps of the shadow. If you can understand this message today, then you will know how to be steadfast upon the religion, if you understand this message, and then the filler. If you understand this message of Allah subhanaw taala then you really know how to be steadfast upon upon this religion. Because you see, the shaitaan is not dumb. No, we are facing an intelligent enemy. He is a logical person. He is not stupid. It was stupid. He wouldn't have guided so many logical people away. correct or not. Rather, he is an intelligent person. Yeah, he's an intelligent, evil evil evil being he's intelligent. He's not going to come in come to say go and do that thing.

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

And go and except to show you straight away and go and commit Zina go and commit funny a funny Kate straightaway No, he's gonna come to a small small things, things you don't even realize. These are the steps of the shaytan these are the steps of the shutdown you see when you want to go to the first of all you have

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

To take the steps and the steps start down there, you see, and they're very easy to go. But if you had to climb up all the way in one goal will be very difficult. But the steps are the ones that make it easy for you to reach the first floor correct or not. In the same way such as the shaytan. He doesn't come to you. He just asked you to jump in and grab hold and then the police have appnana law. He is more intelligent than that. He has these steps that he has done for you. These are the footsteps of the shaitaan is Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, are you Aladdin Armando?

00:10:29--> 00:10:42

Who, Swati shaitan be aware of the footsteps of the shaitaan don't follow the footsteps of the shaitaan What are these footsteps with the shutdown? Let me give you an example. Let's say for example, the shutdown comes to you.

00:10:43--> 00:11:22

He comes to you and say and says look at the girl down there she's saying Salaam Salaam and say okay, hi there. Hey, how's it going? Mike? Everything all right, you know? Nice cheerful is gonna give it our she wants to be Muslim. Go and give it Allah so Mashallah you want to give Tao Mashallah, right so you go and give it our so do you want to know about Islam? And she says Hey, what are you doing? You can just look down when you're talking to you can look at her. Look at her and gift our This is the right way. What are you man? Islam doesn't teach you this. Come on, look at and give the Dow is it. Oh, Hello, sister. How you doing? Good. And then she dances ask her The

00:11:22--> 00:11:53

weather is ask her what she's doing tonight. And then you ask her sister. You know if you have time, please read this book later. How's the weather? And then you start chit chatting. And then the shutdown says, Take a number. Take a phone number you can tell about Islam. Yeah. So you take the phone number and you give her your phone number. Right? And the short answer is Oh, after a couple of hours, whatever the sister, you know what if she dies today, you have to call her you're gonna give her a call and give her a call. And she and she talks in a beautiful voice. And you talk to her in a beautiful voice. And then you say okay,

00:11:54--> 00:12:09

I have to give her more power. Ask her to ask her to meet you at this spot. And you tell her sister please meet me at this spot. And she comes in you come and then you make it you know Subhanallah little by little little by little by little until you end up committing Zina with her

00:12:10--> 00:12:50

until you end up committing Zina with her. You see shaitaan is not stupid, he won't say go and jump around, jump around or No, she's not gonna say that. He would be stupid to say that. He would be stupid to say that. But he starts with these small steps. These are the watershed. These are the small steps of shutdown. You're actually if you are, if you can stay away from the first step, then be assured you will never reach the last step of treatment. If you can stay away from the first step, then be assured you will never reach the last step. This is the first and foremost and most important, important lesson today. And that is stay away from the footsteps of the shaitaan if you

00:12:50--> 00:13:08

wish to be steadfast upon this religion, and Mashallah we know a lot of things are practices very little, we know a lot of things. And if you wish to stay away from the footsteps of the shaytaan, then you must if you wish to stay away from the last step, you must stay away from the first step. Now, you see once an Arab

00:13:10--> 00:13:22

from the desert, came to the loss of the law, what he said. And he said yeah, Rasul Allah, tell me one thing. Tell me one thing that will take me into paradise.

00:13:28--> 00:13:34

I apologize. I saw the beautiful beach out there, you know, I'm thirsty. Right? So having some water. Right?

00:13:36--> 00:14:15

He said, You have a school of law. Tell me one thing, just one thing. I don't want to know three, just one. Tell me one thing that will lead me to paradise. This is what we want. Correct? We see, you know, for example, you know, Islam is so complicated. And it's so multi, you know, so diverse, and so many things to know in Islam, etc, etc. So people just say, Oh, just leave me all of this. Just tell me one thing. And this one thing that will lead me to paradise right? simple answer, correct. This is the American philosophy. Correct? Just a simple way to paradise, right. So the Arab came, and he said, Tell me one thing that led me to paradise. And so Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

said, cool, man to build.

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

He said, say I believe in Allah through Mr. King, and then be steadfast upon it.

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

Now, you see my brothers, this hadith has been very greatly misunderstood by us. This Hadith has been very greatly misunderstood by us. What do I mean by that? You see, people have taken this hadith and understood it to mean that we should just say la ilaha illAllah. And they keep on saying La ilaha illa Allah and keep on doing whatever we do and then keep on saying La ilaha illa Allah and then when we digest c'est la ilaha illAllah and straight we'll go to Paradise. Greg Toma. This is what we have understood, isn't it? But this is absolutely false.

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

absolutely false. The biggest lie. This is the biggest lie that the Muslims are facing now. They're just to say la ilaha illa Allah, Allah, you've got a paradise. If it was so easy. Is it? is Islam really so easy? Have you forgotten the second part of what we're also Lawson's answer? It was some through Muscatine and then be steadfast upon it. How can you be steadfast por la ilaha illa Allah if you do not know the conditions on that, you know, if you do not know the precepts of La Ilaha, if you don't know the route of La Ilaha, Illa, that which La Ilaha Illa conditions, you see you have a key in your pocket, don't you? You have a key. And does anybody have a key that's just this long

00:15:40--> 00:16:22

piece of metal? No, it has teeth as well. Right? So that you know, handle that as well as teeth. You see. You must have conditions for every single thing. Life is not that easy. Islam is not easy as well. If you wish to hold on to that Allah, Allah you must obey, obey the conditions Allah, Allah, Allah. And these conditions are to hold steadfast to this religion. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, are you Hello, Dina Armando. Oh, hello, facil. Metcalf, enter into this Islam, religion in its complete entirety, in its complexity, and its entirety, enter into it completely, not half, not a fourth of it. Allah subhanaw taala when he revealed the sutras, he changed the orders, and he put

00:16:22--> 00:17:00

them in he put in certain certain surah sometimes the verse would come about a ruling, and sometimes the verse above and Israel, another time a verse about about gender. Another time a verse about hell, he did not put all the rulings of of the Quran in one, one surah. And then after all this, all the verses above, and he said he wants you to know that He mixed it up. Why? Why, so that you just don't hold on to one part of the Quran. Not on to only on one onto one part of the Quran, rather went into its entirety into all of it, all of it. You can't just say I accept this part. And I don't accept that that part. You can't be steadfast upon something or leave something else. This is not

00:17:00--> 00:17:27

being truly steadfast upon the religion, being steadfast it is to accept Islam in its complete entirety. In its complexity, in its in its totality, in its in its total view. In all, its academic, all its rulings, you must accept it all, and then thereafter, be steadfast upon it, and then be steadfast upon it. Indeed, if this is your goal, that the angels descend upon you on the day on the day that you die,

00:17:28--> 00:17:33

then you must say la ilaha illAllah, and thereafter, be steadfast upon it.

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

One of the most important things to know about being steadfast upon the religion

00:17:41--> 00:17:41

is that

00:17:42--> 00:18:27

the heart must be guided before the limbs, you see, you can't be steadfast upon the religion, unless your heart is firstly steadfast upon the religion. Because you see, it's like a ruler, have you seen, for example, a party and a raiding party and army? Have you seen an army which is always victorious, then a victorious army always has a, a fantastic ruler, a fantastic commander, correct or not? A very strong commander. This is what makes a small army when correct or not. This is what makes a small army lean. In the same way, if your body is the army, the heart is the commander. The heart is the command. If your heart is strong upon this religion, if your heart is strong upon this

00:18:27--> 00:19:08

religion, then indeed it will guide your limbs, to be steadfast upon the religion, and to be upon the religion and to be upright upon the religion. And if your heart is weak upon the religion, and you truly don't really want this religion, then indeed your limbs will also be the same as if you lay off the villa, my dearest brothers and sisters in Islam, you must try your level best. You must try your level best to convince yourself and your heart. you convince yourself and you have to be upon this religion. It is only when your desires are in accordance with what Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam came with. That is the time when you know that your limbs will also submit to what he came

00:19:08--> 00:19:54

with. Now, as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, he said none of you will enter Jannah he said none of you will enter Jannah and other Hadith he said none of you will will truly believe until your whims and your desires, until your whims and your desires are in accordance with what I came with. Now, until you heart until your heart really once what I came with until your heart really desires what I came with. You can't just say this Muslim used to keep a beard another one. I don't like keeping beard. You can't say you know like we used to used to do this I used to do this or I used to do that. And I don't like to do it. No. No Yeah, you can't do that. Rather your heart has to be a

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

new whims and desires which is which is representative of your heart has to be in accordance

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

has to be in accordance with what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam came with. This is what true is the common entails, this is what truly being applauded upon straight, straight path entails that your true desires, and your inner goals and your aspirations be in accordance with what Allah subhanaw taala requires a few, sometimes

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

the going gets very tough.

00:20:23--> 00:20:39

Sometimes I know I've lived in the West, you know, and, you know, medical college and all that, you know, life has been very difficult. And the pressure from the family and father saying do well and mother saying do well, you know, you know how it is, and pressure from the medical college. And

00:20:41--> 00:21:17

you know, it was quite a tremendous pressure. And then the fitness of the women and the fitness of this Sex, drugs and rock and roll culture that we live in, was quite tremendous. And I'm sure many of my brothers and sisters actually go through this day by day, even though we may be in denial, even though our elders may be in denial, even though our fathers and mothers may not really truly realize because they're not in tune with what's happening. But this is truly what every youth goes through. With every youth goes through, I understand because I'm from you. I'm one of you. I'm not that old, right? I might have a beard. I'm not that old. I'm very young, very, very young, trust me.

00:21:17--> 00:21:59

But I'm not gonna tell you how old I am. Anyway. So really, your life is very difficult. And I realized that, and sometimes, as you know, we say the going gets tough. Yeah, like saying goes, the going gets really tough. Sometimes it's very difficult you life is very difficult. And to even hold on to a small matter of Islam is like holding on to hot coals. Have you seen hot coals, see hot coals because in Australia, we have a lot of barbecues, right, so we take these black black holes, and then we put a fire on to it right, and then the fire burns, Mashallah, and then it turns red, then after it turns red, then it turns into, into this, this gray gray type thing. So this is when

00:21:59--> 00:22:16

you know that cause already, and then after that you put the meat on it. This is the hot coals. This is the hot coals. So it's like putting your hands to hot coals, sometimes holding on to a small amount of the religion, whether it be just to just to you know, leave your lectures to just come and come in since Allah, whether it be just to

00:22:18--> 00:22:56

you know, I don't know, just give the oven perhaps, whether it be just to keep a beard, for example, in this society, whatever. Sometimes the religion is so difficult, sometimes going so difficult, not because the issue itself is difficult. No, just that. Sometimes, you know, when your soul has just really been Taliban, it's been really, really just, you know, had a lot of pressure upon yourself, whether it be the pressure from the society, pressure from the family pressure from outside, and the fitness is so great, and the fitness is so great. And the trials and tribulations outside is so great, and it's upon Allah, sometimes it really gets tough, the going gets really tough.

00:22:57--> 00:23:15

Well, actually an octave Allah, if, in such circumstances, you still hold on to the religion, and you still hold on to religion and you keep on holding on to the religion, then Abba Shirou that take the glad tidings of what glad tidings of a great reward.

00:23:16--> 00:23:41

A great reward. It's not small is great, and what is this reward you asked me. So I tell you, the reward is tremendous. The reward is tremendous. Once Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said in authentic hadith, he said, There will come a time, there will come a time, in which holding on to a small part of the religion is like is like holding on to hot coals is like holding on to hot coals.

00:23:42--> 00:23:55

And for such people who hold on to the religion, even though it is so difficult to hold on to the religion, and for such people who hold on to the religion in such circumstances, will be the reward of 100 companions of mine

00:23:56--> 00:24:39

100 of companions also loss of tremendous reward tremendous, you cannot imagine, you cannot imagine the reward, you see the least person in Paradise, do you know the least person paradise, the person with the lowest rank in paradise? Do you know what his reward is? his reward is 10 times and another generation 100 times of what this world has, what is in this world and all that it contains, and 10 times of this or 100 times of this imagine that this is the least reward in general, the least reward in general. So what is the reward of a companion are rasulillah. And what is the word of a person who has 100 times have a companion rasulillah tremendous reward, tremendous reward. This is

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

why I think when the going gets tough know that the reward is also tremendous. Allah subhanaw taala knows what you're going through. Unless the person is closer to you closer to you, then yourself closer to you than yourself. He knows he's the one who created you. He knows what you're going through. He knows what you're going through for him. You see, you're not alone in this knowledge. You're not alone unless father knows what you're going through.

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

So you must hold on to the knowledge hold on to the religion, when the going gets so tough, so tough, you must still hold on to religion, as as tough it may be, for example, you may be, you know, a big lecture or you may be a big, big manager at work. And, and people say, hey, come and have a drink with us, or come and do this with us. And the fitness may be great. And the women may be really inviting some highlights you hold on to the religion, if you hold on to the religion, then the reward will be tremendous. But if you did not hold on to the religion, then you are the greatest loser. There is no other loser except you, you are the greatest loser now. Why? Because you have

00:25:40--> 00:25:45

lost such a great reward. What a great loser, you are. Tremendous loser you are.

00:25:46--> 00:26:24

But if you held on to the religion, held on and had patients, then your reward would be tremendous, tremendous, something we can't even imagine, something we can't even imagine. And if I started to talk about the rewards in gender, about the descriptions of gender, and the descriptions of the women and gender, and we're lucky, I can sit here for two hours describing the women of gender, how her body is, I can describe to every single thing I know about her, it'll take me two hours to describe her. If you were to only know about the rewards in general that awaits the person who holds on to the religion, then no way would you ever leave this religion for anything else, like you're

00:26:24--> 00:26:30

actually holding on to the religion would be more beloved to you than to be thrown into, into a pit of fire.

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

There are three things you need to know

00:26:34--> 00:27:09

when the going gets tough. Three things that you need to know when the going gets tough. The first and most important thing is to be patient. The first and foremost important thing is to be patient upon your religion. You see when the going gets tough, there's nothing you can do except just sit down, have a drink of water, or you know, perhaps, you know, Diet Pepsi or something, just to get your system running up again and say, you know, Subbu Subbu Subbu Patience, patience and patience. There is nothing that you can do except Be patient, when it is really tough.

00:27:10--> 00:27:33

And you need to get married and you're not married. And I know that feeling when it's really tough. Sit down, take a glass of water, and just be patient and just convince yourself to be patient. The second thing you need to do. The second thing you need to know is to think about the great reward that Allah subhanaw taala will give you for being for being patient,

00:27:35--> 00:28:18

that Allah Subhana Allah will give you for being patient, and what is that reward, I just told you the reward, the reward is tremendous, tremendous. It has no it has no monetary value, it has no finite value that I can give you. You see, we think we think in finite terms, that Allah subhanaw taala talks about in infinite terms, what do I mean by infinite terms? I mean, this dunya is finite, you see 70 years you will live perhaps, but then the Euro is infinite, it will last forever. How can something that will last forever compared to something that only lasts 70 years? Can it ever compare? It can never compare, never can this laugh compared to the hereafter never can this live

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

compared to the hereafter

00:28:21--> 00:28:47

a foot a foot length, the length of Paradise is better than what this earth contains and all and everything in it. What this earth contains and everything in it. Just the the femur, the wrapping of the of the woman of Paradise is better than this earth and all that all the all that contains so panela if all of this is known, then this remember the tremendous reward that awaits you that awaits you if you were to be steadfast upon this religion.

00:28:48--> 00:29:14

And the third thing that you need to know is remember those people before you, those pious predecessors before you, those Muslims before you, who had so much difficulty in their life, yet they held on to the religion. They held on just like the bit they're biting the roots of the tree and held on even though they will be pulled away. They're still holding on to the religion.

00:29:15--> 00:29:59

And I give you the example of use of Alison, do you know the story of use of Alan Silla? What happened to use of Alison, you see Allah subhanaw taala when he created beauty, he divided beauty in half. Now, he when he created beauty, he divided beauty in half and half of beauty he gave to all of creation and the other half he gave to use of other salon now, so he was so beautiful, so handsome, you can't even even imagine Mashallah, you look in the mirror and you see a handsome man, don't you? When you look in the mirror and say Mashallah, what is Allah created? What a beautiful creation was created by us when a Salaam will put you to shame now, you put you to shame because he was even more

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

beautiful.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

than that. So what happened to us when Islam? Allah subhana wa tells us that when he grew up furama Bella should though when he grew up, and it became a young man, Allah subhanaw taala gave in hikma Allah, Allah gave me Hickman, and then what happened? Gave me Hitler meaning making made him a prophet. And then what happened yesterday, what happened to us what is now you see, he was very tremendously beautiful. And the woman in whose house you were staying in, could not control herself. And I don't think there's a woman who can really control herself when they saw a man so magnificent, so magnificent, okay, so she couldn't control herself. And she closed the doors, and useful Islam

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

was in the room.

00:30:44--> 00:30:57

And she said, Hi, Tilak she said, What? Heitler Come to me. Come to me, I'm for you. And she took her clothes off, come to me, I'm for you. SubhanAllah. And what did you say? My Avila.

00:30:58--> 00:31:01

He didn't say okay. He said my other law.

00:31:02--> 00:31:08

He said, I will be law. The Glory be to Allah. Glory be to Allah

00:31:09--> 00:31:47

Subhana Allah, He remembered Allah subhanaw taala. At that point, he remember Allah subhanho wa Taala. The point, this woman was giving herself to him, a beautiful woman because she was the wife of the Aziz, wife of the rich man. She was the wife of the minister, the finance minister, and the finance minister at the time of the pharaoh at that time, right? He had, of course, all the wealth, right, obviously. So you could also his wife would be very pretty correct or not. Right? And so this woman she wanted to give herself to use of, and she said, and he said my other law, my other law, in our be a cinema toy in the hula is Lavalle moon. Verily, He is my Lord, meaning and he's talking

00:31:47--> 00:32:30

about Aziz. He's talking about Aziz in European cinema. He has indeed given me a lot of good so I can't just commit Zina with you. I can't commit Zina with you, in the hola you fluvanna Moon and indeed he says, and indeed the volume he will never will never be will never succeed, volume will never succeed. And then he says, while awkward hum analysts controller says because Allah knows what is in your heart. Now, unless mother knows what is in your heart. So is Allah subhanaw taala says woollacott Hamad v Hamada and indeed, he had designed her in this she had designed him and he had designed her the hum because I lost the nose, what is in his heart, knew what is in his heart. He

00:32:30--> 00:32:56

knows so he says that, indeed, she had designed him and he had designed her Lola bouddhanath. And had it not been that he saw the sign of Allah subhanaw taala and the Anima deford What was the sign of Allah subhanaw taala. But the sign of Allah that Allah really is talking about the correct interpretation of this verse, is that the realization of Allah subhanaw taala entered into his heart,

00:32:57--> 00:33:18

the realization that Allah subhanaw taala will take into account the realization that Allah subhanaw taala has not sent him to this world in order to just you know, commit haram and commit Zina and proliferate like that, yet Allah has sent him for a lofty purpose. And that lofty purpose is to obey Allah subhanaw taala and to worship Him, this realization entered into his heart

00:33:20--> 00:33:59

and soul, Allah subhanaw taala. And so had it not been that he that this board hand came to him, this proof came to him he would have been from the valley mean, indeed, he would have wronged himself. And so happened what happened and he ran away from from her, and she ran after him. And then he told us his claws from the back and then of course, you know the story What happened? But Subhanallah What an amazing thing. What an amazing thing. Use of Anna Salaam, he held strong upon the religion, he held steadfast upon the religion that he held on to the religion even though the odds were against him, even though his own soul was telling him since since in even though when I

00:33:59--> 00:34:07

called him up, even though she desired him, or her and he designed her, even then, even then he held on, he held on to the religion.

00:34:09--> 00:34:15

And what about the example of Rasulullah solisten? Whatever the example of Rasulullah. Habib, how Beloved,

00:34:16--> 00:34:58

whatever his example, you see the mushrikeen came to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, Uncle Abu Dhabi, and said, Oh batalik Go and tell your your, your your nephew, go and tell your nephew, that if he leaves, what he is calling to, then we will get we will marry him to the most beautiful women of our tribe, and we will give him whatever wealth he wants, and we will make him the leader of our tribe, if that is what he wants, if that is what he wants, but we'll give him anything he wants for him to leave his religion. And so I will call it came to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and said what he came to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and said you have been a so all my son, this is what this is what

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

the people have told me. So what do you say?

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

So what do you say? And also Lawson rossella was reciting the code.

00:35:05--> 00:35:28

And they looked up to his to his uncle. He's looked up, he looked up to his uncle. And he said, All my uncle, he said, Oh, my uncle, while law he by Allah subhanho wa Taala were they to bring the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand, I would not leave calling to this religion either for one minute.

00:35:30--> 00:36:12

One line if they bought the sun in my right hand, and the more in the left, I will not have left leaving according to this religion even for one minute. Look at the strength of his the karma. Look at the strength of his steadfast steadfastness upon his religion. This is what I'm talking about. You're holding on to the religion when the going gets tough, holding on to the religion when the attractions of this life are so great. And it is so easy to let go. This is what I'm talking about. Today, Mashallah, you have learnt a lot. today. You've learnt a lot. But then the real time for practice starts when you leave the door right now. When you leave, you see, and you leave and go

00:36:12--> 00:36:37

out. And the distractions called you today is what today's Sunday, Sunday, right? Yeah, Sunday party day, right? Party time. When you go past the city center. And you see all the hot arm and they call you. Talia de la Come and have a nice time with us party. Yup de la slaver for law come and party with us. Yeah, this is when the practice starts. This is when the practice starts.

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

When what you have learned, that needs to be practiced. This is the true practice. Have you heard as well the story of Musa

00:36:47--> 00:37:22

Musa Ahmed, one of the companions, one of the young companions little sort of lesser, Musab Amir was like a playboy, you know, playboy. And I couldn't find any other word to say but he was a playboy was a playboy. You see he had the best of cars at the time, of course didn't have cars. They're the best of horses and camels. And he had the best of clothes of course they didn't didn't wear shirt and pants and suit. Of course, they had soaps and other things at the store. And he had the best of perfumes and of course I'm not talking about Giorgio Armani and all these other juppe and all the other modern perfumes. I'm talking about the beautiful perfumes Arabia at the time. And he was

00:37:22--> 00:37:54

slick, you know, slick. Have you seen a slick guy slick, and he was hot. The women used to love him. Yes, he was. All these words are you know this modern translations of these Arabic was the LM I have to use to describe it. Yeah. And he was such an such a beautiful young man. Muslim man was the talk of the town. He could not walk around the street, except that the women would look and speak out the window. Look, young man, and the men would smell and they wouldn't listen to me walk pass. He was such a grand young man.

00:37:55--> 00:38:15

A slick individual. He was a playboy of the town of Greenwich. Right? Muslim men. And his parents were extremely rich and gave him whatever he wanted, clothes, perfume, women, anything wanted he had, yet when he accepted Islam, and he accepted Islam in the early days of of the message of Rasulullah.

00:38:16--> 00:38:22

Right in Makkah, when the time when the time was tough. When you accepted Islam, everything went.

00:38:23--> 00:39:05

Yeah, everything went his clothes, his perfume, the women, the talk of the town, everything went, everything went. So neither did he have his beautiful clothes, nor any beautiful perfume. In fact, the alumni are described in the books of Syrah. They said that he only had a piece of clothing to cover his private parts. That's all he had. Neither did he have food. Now, did you have clothing? Neither the perfume? Nothing at all, because his parents who are non Muslim took everything away from him, just to see if they could punish him or make him come back. But no, you're after he was true upon this religion. He held steadfast upon this religion, even though these things were all

00:39:05--> 00:39:38

taken away from him. Yeah, he is not an old man so that so you can't associate with him. He is young, like you and me. He was a young man like you and me. Imagine if everything was taken away from you, so that you may relieve your religion? Will you listen to that? Sometimes, for example, you know, when I'm doing that our brothers come to me and say, brother, my mother said we can't do this. Or my mother said, I can't have this or my mother said I have to cut my beard because, you know, because if I keep my beard, my mother is not gonna give me my car, or my mother is not going to let me do this or that and you become so and they become so afraid of their parents.

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

SubhanAllah or sometimes I hear brother saying brother, I can't, you know really come for Juma because my work is gonna you know, it's gonna affect my work of the bosses of the bosses not letting me Brother, you know, I've got kids, and I've got to feed my family, and I've got to pay off my car. I've got to pay off my house, and I've got to leave in decent life. I blame john my left two brother. Let me just just

00:40:00--> 00:40:34

You know, keep on working on such a such such a place. You're actually this is a shameful question. I'm ashamed when I hear this. I'm ashamed because when you read about the stories of the companions of the solar system and how they were steadfast upon this religion, we feel ashamed that indeed this religion that we're holding upon is perhaps not the same religion No. When you read the stories It is as if it's a different religion is to live a different life is to live Yes, it is indeed a different life is to live so Masada may This is how he became and you know in the Battle of butter in the battling rituals of nama died

00:40:35--> 00:41:17

the companions narrated Musab nah man his skin had became rough from all the from all the all the time that he had spent without without a without something to cover his top part as part of his body where his skin used to be the smoothest and the widest of skin. It became dark and scaly. And he didn't have anything to cover indeed on the on the on the day of bother. He took a companions legs, and he grabbed it, grabbed his legs and slept like that because he had nothing just to get the heat from his from from his feet. Just to get the heat from the sea because it was cold. And the night of a brother and his brother as you know he died. He died. Yeah, if you love it, oh, my dear brothers

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

and elders in Islam.

00:41:19--> 00:41:55

This is the steadfastness upon the religion that I'm talking about. This is how you should be steadfast upon the religion Mashallah, I'm not here to tell you something new about the religion. I'm only telling you to be steadfast upon what you already know what you already know. You know a lot Mashallah practices, little knowledge is a lot. Practice is very little. I'm only telling you, this is my message today. Just to be steadfast upon what you already know what you already know from Salah, what you already know from Zakat, what you already know from fasting, what you already know from saying La ilaha illa Allah and His conditions,

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

then be steadfast upon it.

00:41:59--> 00:42:38

And we even allow you will be from those people who the malaria it could come down and the malaria could come down and they give them the glad tidings of a Jana. What are vissuto Belgian Atletico from Cuba don't and take the glad tidings of the gentlemen that you have been promised. Now, no Alia or COVID hayati dunya, Verily, We were your companions and you help us in the life of this of this world? Well, I could see her matushka here and for sukham and in that life is for whatever you want, while a comfy hamata down and for you is whatever you want. Newsela metaphor for Rahim, a beautiful place of dwelling from the hostel Rahim from the one who is most merciful, Most Beneficent, Subhana

00:42:38--> 00:42:42

Allah, Allah Hama, we have a shadow Allah, Allah Hitler and the stuff will go to be like

00:42:50--> 00:42:58

if you don't mind out answer in English inshallah. so that everyone can benefit actually is quite important questions. Is that okay? For the brother who asked these questions.

00:42:59--> 00:43:43

First one is to say that the first question is, can you explain and clarify the issue about the women of this dunya are they say that are the leaders of the whole Lane? Yes. Actually, I can clarify that question hamdulillah and, and this is an important matter because unfortunately you know, we brothers always talk about the whole nine as if when we leave the sisters out, no, no, actually, this is not intended. It is only intended to actually make the brothers feel more comfortable and you know, decide to go to gender, it is not intended to put the sisters down at all. Indeed, the Sisters of the of this dunya, those who had taqwa and were righteous and entered into

00:43:43--> 00:43:50

Jenna, then indeed they will be for the sake of the whole in Yes, this is an authentic hadith and authentic hadith in in,

00:43:52--> 00:44:27

in Mr. Mohammed that are sort of lost on the law. What I said to him said authentic hadith a Muslim Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that the women of this world mean this meaning the minute they believe in women of this world, when they enter gender, they will be 70 times more beautiful than the holy they will be 70 times more beautiful and the whole aim. So it is true therefore that that they will also be from the say that as well. As well as we can understand from the from the from the donations, that they will be from the say that and also actually more beautiful. So just because we talked about holding the end doesn't mean your wife won't be more beautiful your wife

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

will actually be more beautiful. Be in the law if they actually enter gender

00:44:31--> 00:44:34

be in equal burden. The

00:44:38--> 00:44:48

second question is some people say that no female Rahim Allah permitted my female humble as a great scholar in onaiza in Saudi Arabia is one of the few great scholars of this woman

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

that have died

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

last year, and that he adjusted that he permitted the home was unavailable.

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

The meat that has been not that has not really been slaughtered upon the correct manner to be to be to be consumable for Muslims.

00:45:10--> 00:45:14

The issue that ignored me Rahim Allah really permitted was that

00:45:15--> 00:45:38

was was the statement that this country, the Western countries, where they are clearly Muslim in our here, and such as you know such as England such as America, he used to consider the people of this land to be educated to be educated. And so therefore he permitted eating of the, of the, of the meat of the alligator because of the statement of Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

Allah, Allah, Allah.

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

Allah,

00:45:44--> 00:45:45

Allah, Allah,

00:45:46--> 00:45:47

Allah home.

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

Anyway, this is

00:45:52--> 00:46:33

basically the verse mentions that Allah, Allah says, a Yamaha political party, but today everything good has been permitted for you, and for omelette in auto keytab and those the food of those people who have been given the book have been permitted for you and your food has been permitted for them based upon this lemma have permitted the eating of the food of the meat of the Africa tab of the of the Jews and Christians and so, nothing normally used to in general consider these countries to be and look it up. However, this opinion of a Moroccan mala is not supported by many other lemma, many other elements have actually lived in this Western have more contact with this West have have not

00:46:33--> 00:47:11

permitted this, because of the fact that from the shadows of the is, as vast majority of them are safe to say Bismillah to say that the saying of Bismillah was fluttering is one of the most important conditions, which vast majority orlimar except for the chef, a madhhab. Say is a precondition for for slaughtering, and and does not in this condition of saying Bismillah is, is a condition whether the person who slaughtered is a Muslim or a non Muslim because of the time also assessment, the Jews and Christians also used to slaughter in the name of, of Allah subhanaw taala, not in the name of anyone else. Of course, nowadays, we never know whether it is a Jew or a

00:47:11--> 00:47:51

Christian or, or a policy store, or an atheist or an agnostic. And even I remember checking some of the bulletin boards in America I think about seven years ago. And and the results of the religious results of the religious volton bulletin board was that 95% of Americans are either either atheist or agnostic, either atheist or agnostic. So where are we to say, therefore, that the meat coming from their places is halal. And even an even I remember a religious ruling from the, from the scholars of the board of Saudi Arabia. And they they graded a lot of the meat that even comes into Saudi Arabia itself to be hung up, whether it be from Brazil, and some places from it from England.

00:47:51--> 00:48:27

And I remember I had read reports of certain Islamic organizations from England who wrote to the, to the Sharia council there to the Board of Allah over there, and they give the fatwa that this that this meat is haram, that this meat is not permissible to be eaten. Of course, this was about 10 years ago, the fact was 10 years ago, right. And so this really shows if the meat coming in from over there is also not haram then this would more you know, you know, this would be more applicable to the meat over here. My my understanding is, you know, I have a a book that is coming up in the last, you know, in a couple of months on the issue of Holland, in the novel, how to print it soon,

00:48:27--> 00:49:04

Sean has a very detailed study of Hillel and the procedure of of slaughtering and all that for the classical sources. And my conclusion after this research is that the meat over here is absolutely not permissible for someone to be to eat, whether it be McDonald's, whether it be Hardee's whether it be sorry we don't have Hardy's here whether it be you know Burger King fast food, whether it be any any normal restaurants but so therefore it would not be permissible for anyone to eat this sort of meat. And Rahim Allah Shona with it with me and he was a much the head and he has his own opinion from Allah However, this is not supported. This opinion is not supported by many of the Allah insha

00:49:06--> 00:49:10

Allah he was asked about the meat that comes into Saudi Arabia for other other places.

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

Yes, yes, I'll speak louder.

00:49:15--> 00:49:18

Yes, yes. Can you hear me now inshallah? Okay, she

00:49:20--> 00:49:25

shared with me a lot of things a phone I'm listening to. Okay. She knows nothing rahimullah.

00:49:27--> 00:49:27

Okay.

00:49:29--> 00:49:29

Sorry.

00:49:32--> 00:49:33

Chinese there.

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

It's on the microphone. Yeah. Scheffer. North Emil Rahim Allah he was asked about the meat that comes into Saudi and he used to see it permitted You see, any of the meat like that comes from Brazil from France you know, the Dukes, chicken and all that someone lives in Saudi Arabia would know the important meat and imported chickens over there used to compensate for missile whereas many of the other automatic Nazi so his opinion really is quite different from the rest of the people.

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

Next point was untaught masala mean? That mean?

00:50:07--> 00:50:33

Allah subhanaw taala has not has not permitted us to eat each other's wealth without without any permissible reason, Allah subhanaw taala has not permitted us to eat each other's wealth without implemented reason. And mean, or insurance is from the sort of eatings without permitted reason. However, I see this issue of media in the West is quite important guys, don't be distracted in science from the west straight on the steps of the shutdown. Don't be distracted guys, come on over here. Yeah.

00:50:35--> 00:51:11

That means from the ways of saying that mean is from the ways of actually eating people's money without due cause without the reason. And the issue of that mean is actually quite misunderstood in the West quite misunderstood. Because you see the non Muslims, they use this issue of that mean, for some sort for certain things which are highlighted and said, certain things which are around, like, for example, we have, you know, in Australia, we have something called rec, V, it's called the automobile insurance, right? Where this guy actually unit, I mean, you, you know, insure your car. And then whenever your car breaks down, that they come in to fix your car up for you. Right? This is

00:51:11--> 00:51:29

what you call a? a, yeah, it's something called a over here. So I've seen a couple of cars on the road saying a right so this is an A type of the the quality insurance correct? Correct me if I'm wrong, the call this insurance service insurance when they actually come and fix your car, you know, throughout the year, for certain fee that you pay them yearly.

00:51:31--> 00:52:06

Rate decisions, right? In Australia, they call it insurance, okay? They call it breakdowns, roadside insurance, right. And so this is a misnomer. This is a misnomer. This is the wrong term. This type of insurance is halaal. This type of insurance is Helen, what am I saying? Hello, why? Because it's a service agreement. It is like for example, you make an agreement with the gym, right? And you say, and the gym says membership for for the gym is is 100 pounds for a year. So you pay the 100 pounds, and you can use the gym whenever you want throughout the year. If you don't use the gym, then this money will run out right and you have no right to take the money back. This is the same as this

00:52:06--> 00:52:45

roadside insurance why because if you just say if my car breaks down, then you will come and fix my car wherever I am this is the agreement and this is 4000 pounds yearly for example, right. So this is the type of insurance which is halon however, the type of insurance which is haram is an insurance of transaction of money, you see this a transaction is a transaction of money for a service correct. But insurance such as that means al-hayat enter the life insurance and insurance or medical insurance is a transfer of money money. Correct transfer of money money, meaning that whenever you get you die, you'll get a load of money or whenever you get sick, then whatever the

00:52:45--> 00:53:21

bills are, they will pay for. Okay the company will pay for. So this is the type of insurance which is not permitted in Islam a transaction wherein you pay money, and they pay it and then they pay your bills, they pay some a certain amount of money back to you. However it is if it is a transaction of money and a service. Right? Did you get back a service? Or you bet or you get back a good from them a commodity from them that this is permissible? Right. So if you, for example, had a health insurance with a particular hospital, I know I know, they don't have this here in certain countries, they have it. Like in, in Oregon, in Jordan, and other places. I know that in certain

00:53:21--> 00:53:51

certain doctors, the people what they do in the villages, they give the doctors in a you know, whatever, 100 pounds, let's say. And they say well, if I get sick throughout the year, you will look after me. So whenever I get sick, you look after me. Yeah, and if he doesn't get sick, then that money, money goes. Right. So this is just the same as the AIA, this is permissible. What is not permissible is like a like a bank, for example, our insurance company, they say that, okay, whenever you're sick, this give us a receipt for you know what, you know, whichever hospital you went to, and we'll pay the hospital ourselves. This is what is not permitted in the same way the life insurance

00:53:51--> 00:53:53

is not permitted. Is the partnership.

00:53:56--> 00:53:59

Insurance. I drive a car. Yes. What driving?

00:54:03--> 00:54:06

service insurance? That's different. That's different. Yes. Right.

00:54:09--> 00:54:14

Yes, this is a third party. Comprehensive. Great. Okay. Because,

00:54:15--> 00:54:18

yes, yes. Yes.

00:54:19--> 00:54:20

Yes.

00:54:21--> 00:54:55

Right. Okay. So the brother is asking about the insurance which is compulsory at this time, which is the which is the third party insurance. My advice regarding this, and this is opinion of a vast majority of our time, who have been asked similar questions about the type of insurance which is obligatory, such as the driving insurance such as might be house contents insurance, in certain countries, it's obligatory, I don't know what his situation here. But let's say that the third party which is compulsory as an Australia as was the same thing, then we say that in such a situation, you let's say you have been, you know, you've paid insurance for the last 10 years and you've been

00:54:55--> 00:55:00

paying 100 pounds each year. And so over the last 10 years, the month

00:55:00--> 00:55:39

money you've given the company is how much 1000 pounds 1000 pounds, right. And so let's say you have an accident, that my advice is that you take only the equivalent of what you're paid, which is 1000 pounds, not more than that. Okay? Not more than that meaning, for example, if the accident costs, the cause of the cost of the accident was actually 2000 pounds, you actually only claim 1000 from them, and the other 1000 you pay for yourself if that is possible. If that is possible. I know in Australia, this is this is possible, we can actually claim and an amount, a claimant amount, and the excess extra we pay for ourselves. So basically, what you're doing is the amount of money you've

00:55:39--> 00:56:06

given them, you get him back the same, right, this is the best way of doing it. This is the best way of doing it. Of course, this is my God, this is something you are forced into doing. And so, you know, you know, the Islam is lifted, because because, you know, the the difficulty of driving without a car is so tremendous. And this is something which really, we can say in Arabic. You know, I'm available. I'm available when you have this issue of insurance and third party insurance. Yes. Well, the

00:56:08--> 00:56:09

same issue. Yeah. Yeah.

00:56:13--> 00:56:18

bit confusing in the sense that, for example, you might be a member of VA.

00:56:19--> 00:56:20

You have a breakdown.

00:56:22--> 00:56:26

They send out a C, which is another company does the same thing. Yes.

00:56:27--> 00:56:31

Yes, you get your car fixed a bills or a C you have.

00:56:37--> 00:56:39

Now they have made them an agent.

00:56:41--> 00:56:55

Yeah, but they were the transactions between you and na only. It doesn't matter what a and RSC has the agreement between you and a is an agreement of a service. And an AA is unable to service you at this point. So it makes it

00:56:56--> 00:57:02

so it makes the RSC and Joaquin and though and the RSC takes care of it. And so it pays this is fine.

00:57:05--> 00:57:23

Yeah, of course we have a very limited time the abuser will be staying with us and showing up to the food afterwards. Can I ask if the debate is gonna carry on uncertain? Yeah. Can we come back to it because we have a pile of questions to get through and inshallah if we can agree actually stop it will be finished afterwards. Shall we have one from the system? Okay.

00:57:30--> 00:57:31

Which one about the

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

topic?

00:57:34--> 00:57:37

Yeah. After this one, your next

00:57:38--> 00:57:38

type.

00:57:42--> 00:58:03

Okay, Salaam Alaikum salam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the people that will be with him in Jannah will be mainly those that will come after him. Can you recall the Hadees to us? And my question is is it referring to the people of Palestine only sokolova I'm sorry. I don't know if it's like this that the people that will be with him in general will be mainly those that will come after him.

00:58:04--> 00:58:30

alone. I've never come across Hadith like this I do not know if it question is referring to people of Palestine only I don't know of any Hadith like that. Perhaps you referring to the Hadith or salsa wherein he talked about Alison ojama and then and then he said home be Sham Sham they are in Sham they're in Sham meaning Sham meaning that people have you know the real area of Sham which is Palestine Jordan you know Syria Damascus around that area.

00:58:31--> 00:58:33

But I'm sorry I do not know for how different this point

00:58:35--> 00:58:39

yeah, okay. Now the question the brother had equally bad mother.

00:58:42--> 00:58:51

Yes, what is asking about boycotting goods and about boycotting the western goods and whether and how should How should that be dealt with?

00:58:53--> 00:58:56

This is what you're asking. But boycotting

00:58:57--> 00:59:05

also, by boycotting goods and about and how and how we should be boycotting and whether that should be really applied here.

00:59:07--> 00:59:45

Indeed, Allah subhanaw taala has created us as friends, we need our believers and help us to one another. So we are obliged by our religion to help each other first, we are obliged by our religion to help each other first and to be friends and whatever that dictates whatever that friendship dictates, whether it be from helping each other monetarily such as giving the obligatory Zakat and the cuttlefish etc. Or you know, in voluntarily such as giving them giving our Muslim Brothers charity and such as for example, giving our neighbors charity we are obliged to help each other not only just physically but as well monetarily and boycotting of goods is something which which is

00:59:45--> 01:00:00

which can be applied as a halal means a lot a means of actually trying to force certain Western methodologies which are anti anti Islamic upon upon in order to be faithful to the Muslim

01:00:00--> 01:00:35

However, I hope that this will not cause backlash, if it does causes backlash, which I'm seeing at the moment, I do not advise this at all. Because you're living in the West here after you, my my brother and sister in Islam, you are living in the West and you wish to boycott the West, I do not see how that is possible. I do not see how that is physically ever possible. So I do not ask you to be anti West at this point. And just because you're living here, and you know, you should build a community here, you know, there's no way that you can really I can't practically I can't say everybody get out of here, I can't. And this would be wrong for me to say as well. It'd be wrong for

01:00:35--> 01:00:52

me to say so I do not say say I will not tell you to boycott the West because this is practically impossible for you to boycott the West. But I do say that that help your brothers wherever they are in whatever way you can, whether it be the law whether it be with your money in a charity in whatever way possible. Look at now.

01:01:07--> 01:01:48

Well, let me just say let me just say yeah, I mean, just to give you an example of how this united Muslims are any Mashallah Hema Cola, right? You see maka cola? When did Makhachkala come out? Six months or so? Six months right? And Mashallah, and how many colors we have now Muslim college? We have Qibla Cola, Aqsa Cola, we have Medina Cola, we are Muslim cola. We have anti muslim. Now what else? whatever color you can think of we have and so many more in the pipeline. So many more in the pipeline see how this united we are at every one of them is saying don't drink stupid drink. You know, think before you drink. So Subhana Allah, this is amazing. And every one of them says 10% to

01:01:48--> 01:02:25

Palestine and 10% to local charities correct or not? Amazing? Well, I mean, look at how this united we can't even drink the same cola. Hey, so how the law so this is an effect of you know, we're talking about boycotting where we're making fun of ourselves guys. We're making fun of ourselves and then hold on to the religion hold steadfast upon religion before you start you know, be trying to do things which you're not able to do. And this boycotting can be done in Muslim countries not not whilst you're in the Muslim minority here. You can't boycott when you're Muslim minority. You can't you're buying few right but you drive a car. You're buying fuel you're buying food from the local

01:02:25--> 01:02:33

station. The local station is Muslim. No, then you're boycotting. What are you talking about cutting it now the drug how you driving is a Muslim club. Muslims don't have cars.

01:02:35--> 01:02:49

Yeah, which was the country's a car and I've seen I've seen proton I think in Malaysia. Nice big commercial a small car when you when you go in. It's very roomy. Yeah, it's a nice car. But you know, there are sellers here. You're driving a German car. You drive American car, you drive a British car you're driving so you just can't boycott. Yes.

01:02:51--> 01:02:52

But you can ask me later on brother.

01:02:56--> 01:02:56

A lot of Americans.

01:02:59--> 01:03:21

A lot of Americans boycott Nestle for their policies in Africa. So I mean, it's not I'm not suggesting we should boycott the West. But some Americans are doing that. It puts us to shame if we know some companies that are openly at this time, say like Mark Spencer, for example, are openly supporting Zionism. I mean, these are the ones that are

01:03:25--> 01:03:26

great for you.

01:03:27--> 01:03:58

People are listening to for me every time they can hire listens to me, I'm in a different position. I cannot give an advice that will affect a lot of people. There are Muslims are working Marks and Spencer, right. They are Muslims that are that are directly affected by that company. They have direct relations with a couple I cannot say anything that will affect a person. Because my situation is very different from what you're saying is correct. I'm not against what you're saying correctly. But I cannot give an advice that will affect the Muslim community here. I'm a responsible person over this Muslim community. And I'm looking at all 1000 different faces and 1000 different

01:03:59--> 01:04:32

situations, and I cannot give a recommendation to someone that will adversely affect their life. Plus my brother, you are living in a society here you're surrounded by people of a different faith. And you cannot be so militant. You cannot be so militant. Yeah, I mean, you know, look what has happened in Bosnia. I mean, it's not it's not that far away. Look what's happened Kosovo, it's not that far away. Look what is happening elsewhere in the world. You I mean, I don't want that you you know you leave England in a coffin. I want that you leave England for a holiday yet but I don't want you to leave England in a coffin. You know what I mean? Now I don't you know Informatica don't want

01:04:32--> 01:04:38

you to go and be buried in a coffin. I want you to go there for hides not for burial. Okay, so please.

01:04:39--> 01:04:42

Yes, louder as well. Yes. Okay.

01:04:44--> 01:04:47

So I'm gonna go over to self love you have to pay the cut the goal that you will

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

differ on this topic of whether to pay the cotton gold that is worn as for gold that is rented out. Of course, although Lima are agreed that the cut needs to be paid on that. As for gold, that is worn

01:05:00--> 01:05:23

Such as ornaments such as rings such as the jewelry, then the correct the most correct opinion is that it must be paid. And this is the opinion of the Hanafi or Lama and also one opinion in the humbling method as for the vast majority of Anima, such as the chef must have been the Maliki and the and the correct opinion in the humble method. And they say that that the cut on gold and silver that is one doesn't have to be paid

01:05:24--> 01:06:00

the correct opinions that has to be paid. This is based on many different authentic hadith that also Lhasa once came up to a woman and she was she had a child in her in her arms and the child had a small gold bracelet. And also last lesson said have you paid as a cut from that? And she said no jasola eresources and said are you will you be happy that on the Day of Judgment Allah will make it a ring of fire if for her on the you know for you on the day of judgment and social she became she became afraid and so she took off the bracelet and gave it to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam straight away This is authentic hadith intermediate others

01:06:02--> 01:06:37

mm tirmidhi Rahim Allah He reported this hadith and then he said while I said Hadith and Heidelberg there is no authentic hadith in this in this matter at all. However the AMA disagreed with him and said No, ma'am tell me the this honey that you report is actually is authentic okay even they wanted me to run millimeters and said it's not authentic. Actually it is authentic and there are many different proofs many different show I had many different you know, Tibet for this for this idea may different follow on durations and so, we say therefore, really is a cut from the goal that one way is must be paid. So, this is the best opinion

01:06:43--> 01:06:44

for the line

01:06:49--> 01:06:50

karma

01:06:52--> 01:06:55

you are talking to the conference, I mean there are

01:06:56--> 01:07:01

1000s whimsey shall never come to this place. Whenever

01:07:03--> 01:07:13

you talk about this, what we are expecting is a scheme for not only what you said, Okay, I think all the scholars or

01:07:14--> 01:07:51

anyone who can say this, but missing is a scheme. Okay, with it is for the homeless. Now we have 1000s of children who are staying at home or wandering around enjoying their life. Yes. What is missing is not coming and encouraged because it is I think 1% of the people listen to this lecture, what is missing? Is the scholars is to come to the scheme is for the Muslim community. Yes. Okay. How we

01:07:53--> 01:08:13

keep our children how we keep our generation. Okay, Mr. column, it says what's missing this? Okay. Can we pay the money for skins like this? This is what this is what exactly missing? I think there are hundreds of 1000s of Muslims during this new submission into some of this.

01:08:17--> 01:08:20

Away from the most. They're missing? Yes, correct.

01:08:22--> 01:08:26

Right, the brothers local affair, de la cara, he mentioned that,

01:08:27--> 01:09:01

you know, the things that we're talking about is not practical stuff. And what we really should be talking about when we talk about karma is practical stuff and how do we actually look after this small community that we have here? You know, so many reverts here? How do you practically look after the children so many children that we have Muslim children on the streets, etc, etc. How do we look after them, and the end and what the orlimar should understand what should be really doing is giving us practical steps. I respect your opinion and this is a good advice and I will try and remember this will love him, my brother, my restrictive brother. I spent, you know, many, many nights

01:09:01--> 01:09:40

thinking on how to actually look after my brothers and how to give them practical steps to live. I live in the West, you know, so many you know, so many 10s of years I've been living in the West and I have a family in the West and we face we face the same problem. Unfortunately this issue of palliative Islamia is a very major issue every aculeata semi every Muslim minority has their own problems it is very difficult for visiting the IR Visiting Scholar to actually give a step by step solution really, someone needs to live here look at the solution look at the situation of how people are and then give them practical steps. So my advice really would be that in the law as as the time

01:09:40--> 01:09:59

passes, as I become more more understanding and knowledgeable about what the situation of every city city here is and then I will definitely tackle this. This is something which is very, very important to me very needed very, very needed. And and if you will notice all my other talks my always my talks are regarding the youth and how to uplift the youth.

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

And Allah knows best we have certain programs that we've started to actually do this

01:10:07--> 01:10:28

only as a as a you know and unfortunately I'm only here for a couple of hours today for example so it is very difficult for me to actually give you a practical step straight away. So if you respect itself could ask me appropriate questions that that might help because Mashallah you have this hammer for this for this woman to do something for this woman over here that money

01:10:33--> 01:10:41

right Why don't you ask me a more specific question like you can't just say a scheme. You know can Zakat money be used to build a mosque can we

01:10:45--> 01:10:48

write Zakat can money cannot be used? Right?

01:10:50--> 01:10:50

Yes.

01:10:52--> 01:10:58

Yes, yes. Yes. From the second minimi Yes.

01:11:00--> 01:11:34

Right. zacco l'affaire Zakat money cannot be used except for the eight things that Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned the Quran, some of the Lama have understood from the verse of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says Wi Fi Sevilla to mean anything that is for the cause of Allah so they have allowed the cut for for Imams, the most developed circuit for printing of Islamic material, they will advocate for that they've allowed Zakat for anything therefore, that isn't that is can be termed as feasibility. However, the best and most correct opinion that is that is followed by most of the lemma, and that is strongest as regards the Arabic language as regards the Tafseer of the

01:11:34--> 01:12:08

Quran as regards the Sunnah novel source Islam is that there's a cut cannot be used except for the eight categories or less what Allah has mentioned the Quran, that is for the suffering that is for the the Quran, the Masaki, this would Abilene Allah, you know, English dummies translate for for the for Korra. For those people who are faqir, who don't even have anything to eat, the Masaki those people who are on the borderline of the society, as regards the monetary financial financial situation is concerned, as those people who collect with the card those people who are fighting the cause of Allah, those people who are gonna mean those people who are in debt those people who are

01:12:08--> 01:12:44

prisoners, those people who are qualified to be him those people who are if you give them money, and they will accept Islam, and etc, and the and these are the people that are cut money can be used as for the youth programs, and as for these community support programs, then no Zakat money cannot be used for them, the cut when it cannot be used for them. And I do emphasize this point because Allah subhanaw taala has not left the has not left the issue of Zakat upon Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to explain, rather he has explained where the Zakat money should be, should be given by himself. This is why he has mentioned that in the in the Quran, and the eight categories that I've just mentioned

01:12:44--> 01:13:07

to you. So really as for the as for these youth programs, Mashallah we have other ways of raising money for that, you know, just from the Juma prayer, for example, we can raise a lot of money from, you know, functions that are held, you know, we can raise a lot of money I know, brothers, who have raised money just for examples, being in the mosque, raised, you know, hundreds of 1000s of pounds in one city. So you can you can hold, you know, fund collections, etc.

01:13:08--> 01:13:28

For that, you know, it's quite quite easy to actually convince the youth youth don't require that much money, youth functions don't require that much money. But as for your question, with respect itself regarding Zakat money, then unfortunately, we cannot use it for that zakat. Subhana Allah cannot be handed a shadow and stuff will go to the lake
