Bismillah Alhamdulillah Salaam Alaikum. Peace be unto you. Welcome to the deen show. You know, we're about helping you understand Islam and Muslims. Islam, which is the fastest growing way of life in the world today with over 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide. It's the fastest growing way of life in the world yet most misunderstood. And I'm your host, Eddie,
on the dean show the new show on Islam and Muslims, helping you build a better understanding about this beautiful way of life. And if you don't know anything about Islam today, God willing, inshallah you go away with a little bit something. So usually I have a guest on and we talk about different topics that are relevant to us all. I don't have anyone on today. But I am going to try to knock out, I get a lot of emails, and I try to respond to everybody. Now if I don't have the answer,
I certainly try to reach out to someone that does. All right. So a lot of the answers that I give back to the viewers is, has already been answered by one of my guests. So I'll just end up usually giving you back something that they already had mentioned and said that you might not have caught
up direct you to where you can go on our site, how to navigate through it, and find your answer there. inshallah Everything is there. If not, then I hold on to your questions. And then when somebody who is credible enough, who is scholarly enough, who has the knowledge, then will pose these questions to that individual, that guests at that time. So now today, sometimes it's difficult for me to get back to everybody, I try to do my best to do so what we're going to try to do in this show, I'm going to pick a few questions, and we're going to try to answer them or give you the direction where you can find it on the site. So let's get right down to it. All right. So
the first question here today on the D show is my girlfriend is suffering from the loss of her brother, that happened three years ago, I have tried everything I can to think of to help her. But I feel like I'm falling short. And I don't know where else to turn. She's a big fan of your shows. But not even Episode 44. That's the one we had up, which was actually a rerun, we had it up this past week, has changed the deep pain she feels. So this is from New York. And
we'll say em, we will mention the person's name, but from New York. I don't know if this is a Muslim, or non Muslim writing, but doesn't matter. So what captured me about this question was that the first part of the person said, My girlfriend, so I'm gonna just start there for a minute. Now, it's interesting when you said your girlfriend now the show that I did with my brother, yes mean, who had lost both his mother and father was a show that I tried to reach out and get some advice from the shakes, talking about giving us some support from the Quran and from this and strengthening us and helping us cope with these these situations and and to give you a status on the bullet Yes,
me, who, recently, like I said, for a young man who's very young, to lose both his mother and father, this is something traumatic, something that can just you can lose end up losing your mind, but his faith in the Creator, in God Almighty, is very strong in this actually even strengthen his faith more. Okay, he prays five times a day, he does good deeds, he gives charity, and he does not transgress the limits that God Almighty has set upon us. Now, when you say girlfriend, I want to put this in a gentle this way. That is very difficult. Now, it's more likely that a person who is abiding by God's laws, he's going to get the strength to get through these difficult situations. So
we know that in Islam, there is no boyfriend, girlfriend. All right. Now, to go deeper into this, you can go to our q&a section on the D show and look under boyfriend and girlfriend in Islam and the chef
will answer this even more thoroughly. So it was just interesting, because this email I started to write back about and what happened was, you know, when you start typing for 10 minutes 15 and you press the wrong button, and everything
In a race, so this will give me the idea to come on. And it'd be a lot easier, where I can just answer these and give everyone a chance to benefit. So there's no boyfriend and girlfriend insulin, okay? For this matter, there shouldn't be no boyfriend and girlfriend, the focalise with anybody I know, we've accustomed to this in our society. But we all have desires. And as a lot of my guests, I did ask a question to one of my guests, Yasser clarity on the show, and others, that this natural desire that we feel has to be in the bounds, we cannot go out the bounds and transgress, because then what can we earn the anger of God. So when you have this desire, you have this feeling what you
need to get married, you need to be with a woman within those boundaries. So now, a person that might have lost somebody and is committing sins, it's going to be harder for you to get that strength back is going to be more difficult, not saying you can't. But when you're strong in your faith, when you're strong in Islam submitting to God constantly and a tragic event like this happens. He gives you the strength that you need the patience that you need to persevere to get through these hard times. So my advice now is to look up what Islam talks about boyfriend and girlfriend. That's one because you mentioned a girlfriend realize that we need to be more obedient
to God, we need to be more submissive. And trust me, when you are the help will definitely come. the help that you need to get through these
tough times will come. Alright, and I mentioned my friend who had lost his mother and father who is at hamdulillah. He's He's very strong. He's very strong. He's got a smile on his face all the time. You don't see him teary eyed, you don't see him full of depression and anxiety. He's like somebody who never lost anybody. I'm sure he still thinks about them. But Allah, God Almighty, his strength in him. And this goes back to because he's an obedient. He's an obedient slave to God.
All right, so getting to the next question on the deen show. A salaam aleikum. I'm a teenage girl from London, England. I am great fan of your show hamdulillah and was wondering if there are any talks about your show coming to England? And on and on? So this question is talking about is there any chance that the show will come to England, the Sharla we're already in in England, we got people you got you watching from England, we got people watching from all over the world. But what you're probably wanting to know is if we're physically going to be coming to England, or maybe on the TV. Now, this is interesting, because we always ask, and we thank you for your support. But how you can
even support even further is continue to let your friends and family and colleagues know about the show. Reach out to them and also reach out to some of these local channels. I had a brother come out all the way from Minnesota. I'd like to thank him and his family, I got to meet them. And they're broadcasting our show on the cable networks over there. I like to think the brother, he knows who he is. And if you're in England, you got Islam channel, contact Islam channel, we're in touch with a brother out there and we're waiting to hear a response. They're possibly talking about Aaron our show. So reach out, send Islam channel comm
send them a message, reach out to them, and let them know that you you think that a D show would be a good part of Islam channel and you'd like to see it on there. So hope that answers the question.
Next question on the deen show.
Peace be upon you brother, I would like to ask you. I work as a chef.
And from the front area of the restaurant, they sell alcohol is my pay from the work holiday or haraam? So this is a very good question. And you deserve a very good answer. And you're not going to get it for me. But you get it from
one who's more credible than myself to answer it. And right now is about the time with a lot of my guests who tuned in who are not just your average folk who are some of the learning Islam. Please contact me. You got my email Some even got my phone number. Only if you're out there share only show use of Shaykh yasir Qadhi.
We got the local imams amount in the shot all these Ebrahim and all the rest of my guests who've been on the show you heard the question. So let's answer this brothers question. Give him an answer. And I'm going to pass this along to one of the shakes. So if I don't get because then you know they're out. They're busy educating the people.
When we get him back on the show next time, we'll try to get back to your question in Sharla. Next question on the deen show our new show on Islam and Muslims. And today, we're answering your emails.
And everybody's going to get a chance to benefit. So the next email coming in is from Minnesota. A Sam on a call. I was wondering if you could please give me the evidence that smoking is hot on Jazakallah hider. Now, a couple points here. I'd like to thank the brother, first of all, who sent me this email, he probably saw some of the shows that we definitely started smoking his head on. Now, we won't stop there. Look, he said, peace be on to you. He spelled the meanings of peace. He didn't attack he didn't get angry. And he said at the end of sokola. So the brother is obviously looking for the truth. He wants evidence. And that's what we all should ask for. If something
doesn't fit, if you feel like you know what?
I really, you know, just by you telling me it's Haram, it's not permissible. Give me the evidence and inshallah you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala, the Creator of the heavens on Earth, you ask him to guide you and then have an open mind and an open heart and inshallah, the truth will be clear. So I'm going to go into this a little further, you can actually, I'm going to send you
to the q&a section of the Dean's show, the q&a section, go into there and look under the title smoking moku or haram. And we have a very one of the top scholars who really goes into depth answering this, but I'm gonna just touch upon this a little bit. When we come back from the commercial break, inshallah, stay tuned.

Our ride. Welcome back to the Dean's show. So today we're answering your emails on the dean show the all new show on Islam and Muslims. And
I hope while we took that break that this answered your question. I hope that really did because that was deep. Now we're going to go on I'm going to touch upon this a little bit. Okay, and try to make this clear, and then we'll see what Islam says. But remember, I pointed you in the direction to a scholar who really goes into deep on this, okay, really goes deeper into this. Now check this out. Why don't we start off with the label? All right, we'll break this down like an attorney does. We'll make a case. Look at the label. What is the label say on the cigarette?
It's a warning. smoking causes lung cancer. smoking causes lung cancer
Heart disease and may complicate pregnancy finish. I mean, seriously, do we need to go further than this? I mean, if you take your shirt, and it says dry clean only, most of us will never wash it in the washing machine. Okay, this is a shirt if you get what I'm saying, but our bodies,
something that the Creator of the heavens and the earth God Almighty, the Supreme has given us. Now you can rent a car. When you take or rent a car out. What do they do when you bring it back? They go around they check the car, you don't think your Creator is going to check this body? To see how you dealt with it. What did you put in it? How did you use it? your limbs, your eyes, your ears, your mouth, everything. So now when the warning label is telling you causes What Causes What Is the label say?
cancer, lung cancer may complicate pregnancy. So not only if you're smoking.
second note, secondhand smoke, smoke, we know what it does. In fact, cigarette use. Let's look at some facts. Cigarette use is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. There are more than 4000 Check this out. There are more than 4000 ingredients in a cigarette
other than tobacco, including 43 known cancer causing compounds and 400. Other toxins
so you know that cigarettes kill about 1200 people a day. Did you know that?
Let's take a break for a second. We'll be right back. Check this out. 1200 people a day.
You know what? We're gonna leave it there for you. So you can see.
All right back on the dean show answering your emails and today, they want evidence. They want evidence that smoking is forbidden, and we're breaking it down. So
1200 people dying a day from cigarettes, we covered the label. What does the label say warning you.
We got about close to about 20,000 miscarriages a year just from smoking.
So look, perhaps if we go into just the ingredients that are found in cigarettes, they'll also help you to think a little bit. All right.
Let's check out what's in cigarettes. We got acetone, that's what's using nail polish. We got aluminum. We got ammonia. That's what's used on floors in toilet bowl cleaners should put in your mouth mummy.
butane, as soon as using lighter fluid we got carbon monoxide, we got siding, poison, you got a gasoline additive. You got nitric oxide. That's a disinfectant. What else you got in there are arsenic. This is using rat poison. You got butane butane, you got carbon monoxide recovered that you got.
You got lead. There's tar actually in
cigarettes. So now inshallah, that this is you reflecting a little bit. We started with the labor. And we went on to what
to cook but how many people actually died 1200 people die. You're affecting your not only yourself, but the people around you are now at the end. I've given you some direction and where you can go further your answer on what Islam says. Go to the q&a section on the deen show and see what the scholars and the consensus of the scholars agree upon and say today. Now just because
possibly any mom or someone smokes, all right. And he is still ruling on a fatwa that was declared hundreds of years ago when we didn't have the knowledge about cigarettes that we have today. It doesn't make it right. today. There are new developments that smoking causes lung cancer as
among other diseases,
and it kills people. So we know that
Anything that harms you, is forbidden for you in Islam, we know that you are not to harm yourself or others. And what are you doing? You're You're definitely harming yourself, and what about the people around you.
So you will be accountable on a day of judgment. And this is another test for us brothers and sisters in Islam means submission. Remember that. So we don't want to submit to our desires and the pleasure the things that we like, we want to submit to the pleasure of our Creator, what he likes, what he loves, and hates. So we love and hate for the sake of Allah, God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and earth. So when you get to understanding this, you go back to the basics, what Islam actually is, and what it came to do for us came to make us slaves to our credit, not slaves to our desires. So this is just another thing that we have to leave alone.
And inshallah this who this free pass this test will get more rewards. So I hope this clarifies things. Remember
is very difficult. You know, we got a lot of things entertaining us. We have a lot of things wherever you turn around, there's some footwork, there's some, there's, there's all sorts of fitna out there temptations, there's things that we're just used to doing. And now the evidence comes.
God Almighty, Allah, his love, delivers the guidance to the knowledge, now it's up to you, am I going to again, submit, or I'm going to brush it off. I have. I've seen many moms and even people and I addressed this really to those people, even high authority, even semi moms who are smoking
through a law because you tomorrow, have people looking up to you. And if you're not adhering to the Quran and the Sunnah, and you're doing things opposite to this, people are looking up to you for advice. They're looking every move that you make, and if you're making the wrong move,
the way that other people are going to make those a lot of people are going to make those wrong moves with you. So feel your Creator and do the right thing. Stand for justice.
stand for truth, and what's the ultimate truth abiding by what your Creator has told you to do? And the example the last and final messenger has worked for us. So with this said, I hope that me reading some of these emails some of you have gotten to benefit inshallah, God willing. And stay tuned as we bring you a new show every week. I will hope I wasn't too tough on some of you. But you know what, we got to be firm on some things. And smoking is a really bad thing is very bad. And it affects your health affects the people around you affects the children that even haven't even come into this world. So after seeing all this, I mean, seriously, you got to be a fool. If you're going
to keep smoking I understand it is a little difficult. Make dua to Allah, have him help you get out some chewing gum. I don't know.
Just keep making dua and inshallah we'll help you so much support you. But if you want to keep making excuses to justify this, I mean, what can I say? I Salaam Alaikum. And we'll see you again. Thank you. Stay tuned on the de show. Assalamu alaikum peace be unto you.
