hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
wa salatu salam ala Abdullah who are solely Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge Marine.
Our last talk for this, I guess mini conference
over the last two days in Southampton
is an invitation from Allah.
And the way that I want to take this is I want to base it around the statement of Allah azza wa jal that Allah says in Surah Al Anfal
here a your hand the man was the G ball. He was rustling either come Lima you're here
who are there more and now Allah jolla Hoan aubaine at an MO AWOL calling me what an emo eight eight shout on what Tappu feet net I love to see Ben Levine our wall mo Ming combs calls some where I learn more and nulla Hashem deed on a call.
I want to base our whole discussion around this. This is because this title it was given it was a very interesting title. And I remember I said to the organizer, I said, What did you mean by this title, an invitation from Allah. And we spoke about some weak Hadith on the topic and we spoke about, but for me the invitation the greatest invitation from Allah is this invitation in sort of and fun,
or you who believe Ansar Allah and His messenger when they invite you to what gives you life?
Is the ajibola Answer Allah's invitation.
Answer the invitation of Allah and His Messenger, when they call you when they invite you to what will give you life
and know that Allah comes between a person in their heart and that to him you will be gathered. And beware of a trial that doesn't affect the oppressive among you alone, and know that Allah is Severe. In a court his punishment is severe.
This is between iron number 24 and 25 and Surah. Two MFAT
will lie this. This ayah contains more than we can talk about in this time will lie but I just want to highlight some points is the G board Allah, you are commanded that Allah is going to call you to certain things. Allah calls you to worship Him alone. Allah calls you to prayer. Allah azza wa jal calls you too fast. Allah subhanaw taala calls you to make Hajj Allah calls you to things. You now have a choice. Either you answer Allah's call, or either you refuse. Thurman share, our fellow human women shall affiliate for whoever wants to believe, let them believe. And whoever wants to disbelieve. It's their choice. If they disbelief, Allah invites you. Allah doesn't force you, Allah
azza wa jal doesn't compel you that you should pray. Allah azza wa jal doesn't drag you by your faces or by your tongues or by your limbs and force you to perform the hajj or doesn't force you to learn beneficial knowledge in this religion, but Allah azza wa jal calls you
either die or come. An everything that Allah calls you to is what brings you life.
And this reminds me of the statement of Allah azza wa jal, our men can and may 10 that I hear you now who were janela who know what I am she behave in Nasik I'm a method who feels Almighty Lisa B hydrogen minha casa Lika Xuyen a little caffeine in America and we saw total and an eye on number 122
What about the one who was dead? And we gave him life. And we made for him a light by which he walks among the people is that person, like the one who is in the darkness, who is never going to get out of it? And in this way we make it we make it pleasing to the disbelievers what they used to do. So Allah azza wa jal tells us about some people who used to be dead, and Allah gave them life. And Allah made for them a light. And the best of what is said about this light is that this light is normal.
again. So the first thing that Allah azza wa jal gives you life with is Allah, Allah anymore nerfed righteous actions. Allah azza wa jal gives you and calls you to beneficial knowledge and righteous actions.
Who Our Lady our Salah Rasulullah, who have been who there were demil happily, you're the hero who either Dini Cooley were Katha Billa he Shahida saw two factor.
He is the one who sent His messenger with alHuda wordiness alHuda the meaning of alHuda here is he sent him with knowledge that benefits you. And he sent him with Dean will help he sent him with the religion of truth, to make it apparent over all of the other religions. And Allah is enough of a witness. So Allah and His Messenger The first thing that they call you to is an enemy now fair, will Amelie saw that. They call you to beneficial knowledge and righteous action. And this beneficial knowledge it is what makes you alive after you were dead.
Our men can AMITA for a heyy now who What about the one who was dead and this dead person we brought them back to life.
Our man can AMITA
Bill jelly will cover the person who was dead because of disbelief or they were dead because of their ignorance. And Allah gave them life.
And the life that Allah azza wa jal gave them is he gave them beneficial knowledge and righteous action and not beneficial knowledge and righteous action A brought them back to life after they were dead.
Allah calls you to learn your religion what call ROD Well called Rob busy Danny in the same my lord increased me and knowledge Allah calls you
to learn your religion. And Allah calls you to practice it. And that's what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with In summary, what did he come with? What did he come with? He came with L n Munna there, what I'm going to select beneficial knowledge and righteous action. That's what the prophets isin was sent with who will lead the owl Salah Rasulullah who have been who within and help Allah al Munna affair with Amazon.
He sent his messenger with beneficial knowledge and righteous action.
He sent him with beneficial knowledge and righteous action. This a gives you life you will have a choice now will you accept that invitation from Allah? Or will you turn away from that invitation? Because Allah called you and His Messenger called you to what will bring you to life after you are dead. And in the eye in Switzerland? What brings you to life is normal in the light of knowledge and acting upon that knowledge.
And if you choose to turn away what I love more and Allah hudl Beynon molecule, Kobe, that Allah azza wa jal comes between a person and their heart, Allah subhanaw taala can divert your heart away from that guidance, away from that knowledge away from that righteous action into a Shubo heart we're sure what Allah called you to what Allah Elmo nerfed Well, I'm gonna select beneficial knowledge and righteous action. What is the opposite of beneficial knowledge?
In this sense that Allah azza wa jal turns your heart to
a shovel hands and the knowledge that harms you and doesn't benefit you. And confusion and doubts and misconceptions should cook Shubo hurt, the person becomes hyaluron they don't know they're confused about things. They don't have good knowledge of their religion. So Allah comes between their heart and Allah fills their heart with sugar coke with doubts. And Allah fills their heart with sugar heart with confusion and misconceptions. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes them confused in their religion because they didn't answer Allah's call. They didn't answer their invitation from Allah, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called them and what Allah and His Messenger
called to sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is righteous action. And if a person doesn't answer the call of Allah with regard to that righteous action, what does Allah do? Allah comes between them in their heart. So he fills their heart with Al Hawa with desires
And he fills their heart with a shallot
cravings. And Allah azza wa jal makes them someone who follows the evil of their soul.
What are Auberry NFC in the Neff Salah Amara to be Su, the soul is constantly inclined towards evil. So you see the person who doesn't answer the call to Allah, the call from Allah for beneficial knowledge, this person their heart is full of doubts and misconceptions. And the person who doesn't answer Allah's call to righteous action, their hearts are full of their desires and their cravings and following their neffs
our 8am Annie Taha Illa, who How do you see the one that Allah any do you see the one who took Do you see the one who took their desires as their God?
The one who took their desires as they got, because they didn't answer the call of Allah azza wa jal
and sometimes Allah subhanaw taala he might only call you one time.
He might give you that chance to answer Allah azza wa jal.
And sometimes if you don't answer Allah subhanaw taala the punishment of Allah can be swift upon a person.
If they don't answer the invitation of Allah azza wa jal.
There are situations where a person is given an invitation from Allah
and they don't answer it.
Like Allah azza wa jal, he said
one who can live with as a data home whatever sobre Kanalen you mean will be he uh well, Amara, we turn away their hearts and we turn away their eyes, because they didn't believe in the first time.
They didn't believe the first time
and Allah leaves them whenever often feel to remind him yet Mahone we leave them in their oppression to wonder blindly.
This is the consequence of not answering the invitation that Allah azza wa jal invites you to
why lembu and Allahu lubaina Mara kalbi, well Anna who either you have shown and you are going to be gathered to Allah and Allah calls you to the ACA.
Allah subhanaw taala calls you to the Aqib as Allah azza wa jal he told us wala who ye do Isla daddy Salem WIAA de Mejia share will allow seriatim stalking Allah calls you to the home of the Hereafter
to the home of peace. Allah calls you to Jana
and Allah guides who he wants to a straight path. So Allah calls you to the Ciloxan was talking.
Allah azza wa jal calls you to the Surat al Musa pain the Sierra which is the spirit of who
hola C'mon livina and I'm Allahu Allah He Mina NaVi in our Cydia quinoa shahada, it was solid Hallo hustle net Hola, Erica raffia, aka the prophets,
those who are most truthful in their belief,
the martyrs and the righteous. Allah subhanho wa Taala calls them
to Jana, and they answered that call. So you walk behind them on that path and Allah calls you to Allah straight path. Bala Bala who method and seal out and Musa Pema, the prophets eyes and said Allah give me the example of Allah straight path.
It is a path that has walls the walls have doorways and the doorways are covered with curtains. When a person enters the path.
A color cries out you all servants of Allah stick to Allah straight path and do not deviate.
And when a person approaches those walls and tries to go through the curtains and into the doorway or color cries out or servant of Allah don't go into it because if you go or don't lift it for if you lift it you will certainly go into it.
Straight Path is Allah straight path.
And the walls are the limit of limits of Allah
and the curtains. They cover the doorways which lead to what Allah made haram. The color at the beginning of the path.
The color at the beginning of the path is the Quran. And the color when you're about to go into that Haram is why
Life Jacobi coolly Muslim. It is Allah's warning sign in the heart of every believer, the fitrah that is strengthened with the knowledge of what is right and wrong in Islam and the revelation that guides you as to what you should and shouldn't do. Allah calls you to the straight path you choose.
Allah calls you to the straight path you choose.
This path is not confusing no one can say I didn't know where the straight path was. The prophets lie Selim said Leila Kalahari her lie as you want her in the hammock it's night it's like it's day nobody deviates from it except that they are destroyed
so it's part is clear.
there's no confusion in the path that takes you to Jana Walla who yeah do in Dar Salam Allah calls you to the home of peace. Allah calls you to make Jana your home your biggest concern,
your worry and your anxiety and to just spend your whole life striving and working to get Jana Allah in Nusselt Allah He Kalia
are in Nestle Atala who agenda aka makan what Allah is offering you to exchange for this work that you're doing what Allah is offering you is expensive.
What Allah is offering you is Jana Jana is not cheap.
Jana gender is not cheap. Gender is something that is worth something it has value to it.
It has value to it.
And something which is so valuable, it requires dedication. It requires you to keep on walking on that path and to remain on that path until you die. What I pulled the rug back I had to kelia clean worship your Lord until that which is certain meaning death comes to you.
And Allah azza wa jal in the same ayah when he calls us to gives us life. He tells us to be careful of something what type of fifth
be aware of a trial law to see ventilating Avila moment come casa, it doesn't only affect the oppressive people among you. Normally, if the oppressive people do a sin, many people do something haram. They are the ones who get the punishment. But be careful sometimes perhaps Allah would send a fitna that will go for everybody. Everybody gets into everybody's affected by it.
And know that Allah's punishment
What are some of the things that ALLAH SubhanA Whitter Allah invited us to, we talked about being invited to
the straight path. In reality when Allah tells us that He invites us to that which gives us life. Some of the scholars they brought specific answers to it. Some of them said,
Lima, you're here come a Dural come
in a jihad. Some of them said he calls you to fight for the sake of Allah because sorbitol and FAL is a Surah that is all about any one of the main themes of the surah is fighting for the sake of Allah. So they said that this is in context of the ayat it came like that.
Others they said Allah subhanaw taala
invites you to everything which gives you life in this world and the next.
Because there are two types of life right? There is higher tool Abdon and higher tolko
the life of the body
and there is the life of the heart.
There is the life of the body and there is the life of the heart.
And Allah calls you to what will give your heart to life.
And Allah calls you to what will give your body life.
And from this point of view, some of them said any LG had V sebelah and other specific things that Allah calls a person to but in reality, Allah subhanaw taala calls you to many, many, many things. And from this, I want to take something important, everything that Allah commands you with, it will bring you a happy and successful life in this world and the hereafter and everything Allah made haram and I says to the Shabaab especially the brothers in the back and so on. Pay attention to this one.
Allah subhanaw taala everything Allah made Haram is something that's going to cause you misery in this life and the next
People So why Allah made this
haram for me, why is my religion so restrictive? Everything Allah calls you to every command every single thing in Islam.
It brings you a life. It gives you the best life in this world and the best life and the hereafter and everything that Allah warned you against and prohibited you from a something that brings you misery in this life and the hereafter.
Allah is Alhambra Haman
Allah didn't make our religion hot. You read Allah who become a user Wallah. You read you become an Ursa Allah wants your religion to be easy, he doesn't want to make it hard for you. So everything that came haram, everything Allah azza wa jal made haram he made it haram because it's bad for you. Because it's going to kill you. Either it's going to kill your heart or it's going to kill your body or it's going to kill your dunya or it's going to kill you after. That's why Allah made it haram
and everything that Allah calls you to a brings you happiness, and it brings you a proper a good life.
It brings you a good life. And a happy life. There are no here now who hire 10 Cohiba we will certainly make him live the best life in this world and in the next and what Allah made haram woman out of there and Zicree for in Allahumma Isha tell banca we're not sure who yo Malkia Mati. I'ma call her OB Lima Hashem 20 Arma wakad quintuple sera kala cada Lika attack kala cada Attica, Attica Ayatollah Afanasy Taha cathartically Alma twinset.
Whoever turns away from my remembrance is going to live a really restricted, depressed and miserable life in this world, in the grave, and in the archaea.
And we're gonna raise him Yokoyama, blind, he will say, My Lord, why did you raise me blind when I used to be able to see, he will say, this is how my art came to you. You ignored them. You forgot about what you were told. I called you I called you to what was going to bring you life. I was going to bring you site, but when you turned around from My Ayat, and you walked away, I made you blind.
Worker there luckily all my twin sat and today you'll be forgotten.
So we need to understand the consequences of not answering Allah's invitation is misery in this dunya and misery in the grid and misery Yokoyama. And the consequences of answering Allah's invitation is happiness in this dunya does it mean that you're going to become multimillionaire and you're going to live in the number of houses and drive fast cars and, you know, live the most doesn't mean, but you will have the what they call sad that will call the happiness of the heart. Some of the early generations. They said if the royal families, the Kings, if they knew what we had the happiness that we had in ourselves, they would have fought us with their sorts, to get this
happiness need to get that relaxation and that feeling Allah be the Karela he taught in Nakuru
and some of them they used to crave just to, I wish I could just feel the happiness that I see from the students who sit in the masjid and they learn the words of the Hadith of the Prophet. So I said love, the way that they feel when they're learning that religion. I wish I could feel that happiness and some of the qualities that they used to say this.
They used to say I experienced every happiness in my life, except the happiness of sitting in the gathering of the Hadith when the people mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So a person needs to understand
what Allah azza wa jal calls you to brings you happiness in this life. It brings you happiness in your grave, and it brings you happiness in your Acura. Allah calls you to believe in Him, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calls you as Allah said, what Amala Kula took me know when I believed he were Rasulullah Teru company told me noburo Become what Allah Coppola told me Nona. Billa Why don't you believe in Allah, while the messenger calls you to believe in your Lord?
This is now ista Ji boo Lillahi wa Rasool, Ansar Allah and Allah says, messenger, the messenger calls you to believe in your Lord. What AHA that means Qualcomm and he took a promise from you.
In quantum what we mean if you're really believers,
I want you to think about how the messenger called you to believe in your Lord.
The hadith of Mahadevan Jebin when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him to Yemen in a car talk demo at Comey coalmine al Kitab or Nikita Filia con ella Murata de rue who
La ADA that Allah.
The Prophet SAW Selim, he said you owe more as you go into a people of the book. So let the first thing that you call them to be the worship of Allah.
In some narrations and you Wahidullah, the towhid of Allah, in some narrations, shahada en la ilaha illa Allah, what are those three generations tell us by the way, three generations the same Hadith. One of them says a burger to Allah worshiping Allah. One of them says, and you will hate Allah, the toe hate of Allah. One of them says shahada en la ilaha illAllah.
The shahada, it tells us that these three all mean the same thing.
La ilaha illallah Lama Abu Dhabi, how can Illallah nobody deserves to be worshipped except Allah Eva, Tula
shahada to Allah ilaha illallah worshiping Allah azza wa jal along
and the toe heat of Allah and that this shahada is a shahada of utter hate.
The oneness of Allah subhanaw taala this the first thing the messenger caused you to because he said to me, you're gonna go as a die and now my wife, you're going to Yemen to give Dawa, you're going to quit an invitation to the people. The first thing we invite everyone to and you will hate Allah, let them make the tau hate of Allah.
That they worship Allah alone and they don't make any partner with him. This is the first thing that Allah and His Messenger called you to.
When Nora came to his people, what did he say?
And he or Buddha Allah
to worship Allah, and what do you do?
Well to your own and obey me, you will call to worship Allah azza wa jal
your call Mayor Buddha Allah Mala community now Himalaya my people worship Allah you don't have any partner anyone worthy of worship except him No one deserves to be worshipped except him
so the first thing that we've been called to and invited to by Allah is to worship Allah Allah. Then what?
For either out of Allah, if they know Allah and Allah is right, for our beautiful and Allah who follow the either you him Hamsa Salah tin FiiO me him while at him. Let them know that Allah has made five prayers in the day in the night.
How do we know we've been invited to pray five times a day apart from the hadith of wives What does the word then say? Hi Jana Salah
Calm Come to success.
Come to success.
And come to the prayer.
There's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want to get the translation. I don't have a good translation because I don't I don't even know how to translate this exactly.
It's narrated in Abbey Road.
It's narrated in the Sunon of Abbey Road.
UNOSAT He also narrated
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said hello test mero HYAH I love Salah T Halal further. Do you hear the more Advent say come to the prayer and come to success. Carla said yes. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for heylia Heller he said then you have to come

Then you must answer that record they must answer that call that you are called to.
Allah and His Messenger call you to the prayer. The prayer is what gives you life after La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam type once you've done that,
for either so I know for us to build a home and Allah Codfather Allah Ahimsa cotton to Khartoum in Albania, him Phaedra to Allah for Cara

And if they obey you in this, then take it as a car and don't take the very best of what they have in the car collector doesn't take the best of the worst. But here's a beautiful description of what you're called to anymore at the center first thing tell people to hate.
If they listen to this and they know what they're doing in this, then tell them five Daily Press. If they listen to this and they obey you in this then tell them to perform that to perform this occur.
Allah calls you to safety from punishment.
In this beautiful story, Allah tells us in Surah Rother
about the man from the people of frown who concealed his Iman
and he says yeah, call me Molly as a rule Camila Naja. What had your own any eternal? Ted your own any illiac? For our biller who were oshri cabbie mele said EB one either. Oh come LLRC Zilpha la Jarama and NEMA Teddy Rooney, la Heelys. sallahu Dawa tune feed duniya wala fill up your one Nirmala Denna in Allah. What NL Masuri fina home as Harbin now facettes Corona kulula COMM will fall with Emery Illa in nulla. They'll see you and Bill Ebert.
My people, what is the matter that I call you to safety,
safety from Allah's punishment, and you call me to the hellfire.
You call me to make a partner with Allah and disbelieve in him and make you call me to disbelieve in Allah and make a partner with him in what there is no knowledge of and I call you to Allah Zylka far
to the Almighty, the one who forgives
all this for gifts, there is no doubt that what you call me to it has no doubt in this world or the Hereafter.
This is powerful. There is no doubt the what you're calling me to to make partners with Allah, you're calling me whether you're calling me to the grave or you're calling me to the tree or you're calling me to the stars or you're calling me what you're calling me to it has no doubt. It has no invitation. Nor can he answer my to
neither in this dunya or in Africa, and we will be returned to Allah and those people who transgress will be the people of the fire. So you will remember what I said to you. And I put my trust in Allah. Allah is the One who sees everything that his servants do.
calling you to safety. Islam calls you to be safe from the punishment of Allah. It calls you to be saved from the hellfire and it cause you to be saved from the things that take you away from
Allah. And that's why Allah azza wa jal, he said
Hola, aka Runa Illa na wala Ahuja do l Jannetty. Will now feel it be easy while you wait. You know it hidden nurses? I love them. Yes.
It is. These people who are these people are emotionally keen, almost every cat I mentioned that I want to attend to her machete cat. I wish Riccati had told me Don't marry the polytheist till they believe until Allah says Allah aka de rana Ilana, it is the people who make a partner with Allah. They're calling you. They're inviting you to the hellfire. And it is Allah who is calling you to Jana. Allah invites you to agenda and Allah invites you to forgiveness by his permission. And Allah makes clear his IR to the people so that they may remember. Allah calls you to what? To Jana. Allah is inviting you to Jenna. Allah is inviting you to forgiveness.
Allah is inviting you to Jana. Allah is inviting you to forgiveness. He's teaching you how to get to Jana. He's teaching you how to be forgiven. And he wants you to do this he loves for you to be in Jannah he loves for you to be forgiven.
Allah azza wa jal loves for you to go to Jana and loves for you to be forgiven.
But you now must do what it is that Allah subhanaw taala has instructed you with
the means of reaching gender.
And you reach gender by answering the commands of Allah azza wa jal and implementing the commands of Allah and by keeping away from what Allah azza wa jal made, haram
and Allah subhanaw taala
He told us what occurred was saying Alladhina Otto Kitab I mean company can come any tap Allah.
We certainly gave a command to those given the Scripture before you and to all of you to have Taqwa of Allah.
Allah calls you to have Taqwa. And what does Taqwa mean is the same as what we heard in the iron
murli I do rule Camila Naja what had your own any Ilana What is the matter that I called you to be safe to be saved from Allah's Anger to be saved from Allah as punishment to be saved from the hellfire.
That is a Taqwa to shield yourself from
Allah as anger. Allah as curse Allah as punishment and the hellfire. How do you shield yourself from it? From the best of that which is said about this is
the statement of Tolkien Habib
Rahim Allah to Allah that He said, Alam Allah we call it Allah. Allah Nordman Allah Raja isobella Welcome RC Allah Allah nor Amina Allah Maha Fatah added below
that you act in obedience to Allah, upon a light of guidance from Allah hoping for Allah's reward.
And you leave disobedience to Allah, upon a light of guidance from Allah fearing Allah's punishment.
Allah calls you to obey Him in the best way you can based upon the Sunnah with the intention of hoping for Jana. And Allah calls you to leave disobedience to him.
In light of the Sunnah,
keeping and fearing Allah's punishment. And if you do this, this is the thing that Allah said when he had tequila HYAH Allah Who Maharajah whoever has Taqwa of Allah, Allah will make him a way out of every problem. And Allah said what Tapachula you are live on Kamala and if you have Taqwa of Allah, Allah will teach you and Allah said what has a word woofer in a higher Azadi taqwa and when you go on a journey, the best thing you can take on your journey is taqwa to cornea will LDAP so have Taqwa of me or people have intellect.
Allah azza wa jal calls you
to forgive you. Allah tells you how to make Toba. Allah calls you to make Toba
call it Russolo him effing Allah He shared consulted his summer worth he was out here. Giroux come Leon Farah coming to Ruby come while you are here welcome Isla agilely Musa, their messenger said Is there any doubt in Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He's calling you He's inviting you to forgive you for your sins
and to delay you for an appointed time. He's calling you to forgive you.
Allah azza wa jal says in the Hadith codici the Hadith which the Prophet sighs narrates from him first Delphi Rooney, first of all, Ferroni alpha lecom. Ask my forgiveness and I will forgive you.
Allah calls you to make dua to him. Allah calls you to ask him to forgive you. Allah calls you to Toba and repentance. And if you do this, Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you.
asked my forgiveness and I will forgive you.
And from that which Allah azza wa jal
calls us to.
And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calls us to
from that which Allah azza wa jal calls us to and that which the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calls us to is the best and the most noble of behaviors and months.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in brief to leave Oh 10 Mima Solihull o'clock. That's the wording for Muslim Ahmed and outside of the Muslim in Namibia as to the o 10. Me Mama Karima o'clock, I was only sent to perfect the best of manners.
The best of manners with Allah, the best of manners, with the creation.
Allah calls you to this.
And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called you to this
the best of manners with Allah and the best of manners with Allah's creation
and that's why if we bring it back to the hadith of more ad when the Prophet sighs I'm sent him to Yemen he said
tequila Hazlemere Quint, what x beer is se et al hacer una tiempo ha waha. You can nessa be hola can Hasson have Taqwa of Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one it will wipe it out and treat the people with the best of manners. These are just a sample of the things otherwise, we could have talked that we could have spoken about.
And we could have talked about the Hajj for example, whatever then fineness Seville Hajj call out to the people and invite them to come to Hajj is narrated, Ibrahim said My Lord how will they hear me? I'm one month
I'm gonna call the people at then here it means to call invite the people to hatch and Allah subhanaw taala. He said to Ibrahim that your responsibility is to call the people and that Allah subhanaw taala will make the message
will make that message reach every part of the world. How many people delay that? Just as an example how many people delay they say I will do you know next year next year now the price doubled from what it was before how many people 10 years ago they said oh inshallah maybe next year maybe the year after? And then when the price doubles This is Subhanallah it's very hard for me and maybe the price again doubles in another 10 years and so on and so forth answer what Allah calls you to.
And the statement of Allah azza wa jal yeah you hallelujah and hello fees silly me cilmi Katha while at a tiberiu footwear to shape on in hola como movie
all you who believe enter into Islam completely meaning answer the invitation of Allah in every aspect of Islam and don't follow the footsteps of the shaytaan because what is the shaytaan call you to the CHE Pon calls you to Alpha Asha immorality the shaytaan calls you to evil the shaytaan calls you will enter code who Allah He may Allah Tala moon to say about Allah what you don't know the shape on calls you to the other paths. Well Anahata CRRT Musa Hakim and third Tebbe oh, what I Tebbe are so good fit for Raka be come answer really. And this is my straight path. So follow it and don't follow the other paths
because they take you away from my path. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day

One day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

And he drew lines to his left and line switch right do you know what this is? He said hi there Saburo Allah, this is Allah straight path. And these lines that go off what Anahata CRRT musta came and fed Tabby Oh, well at a tablet or Subala, feta Farah kaboom and Sabine in some of them aerations. He said, how the he?

We're cool with it in Bala for every oh he said in this one he said for in Nikola Tesla team. Every newly invented practices and innovation and every innovation in this religion is misguidance
For this is just a brief description of what Allah azza wa jal calls you to, and what his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called you to and some of the points that are related to that, and whoever wants more, I would suggest they start with the Tafseer of this ayah number 24 In Surah Al and fall Yeah, you have levena nostalgie Boadilla he will Rasul the either the icon Lima, your ECAM
or you who believe answer the call of Allah and His messenger when they invite you to that which gives you which gives you life
think now we shall allow to Allah, it's a good idea for us to have our q&a session, be in the light.
I don't really have a way to get q&a from YouTube. I don't usually allow comments although they might be accidentally switched on sometimes but comments to be honest with you. I gave up on comments on YouTube because well, I like it's full of either jehlen wacap compound ignorance of people just being you know, insulting you or just being foolish, or it's full of people who are just interested in what you're wearing. Oh, he's got a new hat today.
I don't know where he got it from.
I'm telling you about gender. You're worried about what I'm wearing on my head. I Docomo Allah may Allah azza wa jal guide us all.
Wallah. It's very sad to me. I gave up completely on YouTube comments, even though people do ask beneficial questions, but it's just finding it in the sea of just
Either people's I noticed was that thing he's put a pound of weight on or you're watching my weight more than I am.
All styles got a little mark on his head. I don't know where I heard that it came from the Wallah. Listen to the benefit of the talk. Don't just talk rubbish. If you came to talk rubbish at a ham Neff sec, just go and sit by yourself in a room is better for you than to come and just talk rubbish, like people do.
And then the comments, the insults, and so on. So I just gave up on YouTube comments, to be honest with you. I've given up on it. But sometimes it gets enabled by accident. But anyways, we try our best not to water switch it off afterwards. It's any there's not very much good in it, even if people do sometimes ask the occasional. Good question. So the questions will be limited to the people in the room today.
Shall we start with the sisters?
The thing is, if I do if I if we first of all, do the ones on the topic, why? Because I stopped the live stream and then I'll do a general q&a session. Like at the same time, I'll just stop it and start it again. Nothing specifically on this topic. Okay, then just give general questions and Bismillah.
How should sisters respond to comments and hate crimes due to the Father etc.
How should Muslim sisters respond to comments and hate crimes with reduced with due to or that are due to the hijab and in general, about the hijab, the niqab, the job, like the concept of hijab, the first thing is, be careful of a Shubha that many people fall into. And that is that because these things happen sometimes in rare situations, people say I shouldn't wear hijab. In reality, not wearing hijab brings the punishment of Allah. As for wearing it, if it brings some other from time to time from some of the people some negative comments, or some people might shout to my point or might even cause you some physical harm. That is nothing in comparison to what Allah subhanaw taala
might do to a person who disobeys him. So don't be a person who takes a tiny number of incidents, because let's be honest, in the UK, the number of incidents that relate to the hijab are very small in comparison to other incidents, any, if you look at the number of times people get their, you know, bag snatched or their, you know, wallet stolen or something in comparison to the number of people who get something happened to them because they wear the hijab. It's very, very small, but it does happen. But don't allow that to be a reason to disobey Allah subhanaw taala
that's the first point. The second thing is expect the reward from Allah for the difficulties that you face when you are practicing Allah's religion. We mentioned in the last class what did we mentioned the Hadith whether al Islam or even will say oh, do I even care about that for a little while about paradise is for the people who
are strange. The people who are practicing Islam in the time when the other people stopped practicing the people who use Leona F set a national mean Suniti they correct what the people corrupted from the Sunnah of the messenger SallAllahu it who has sent up so
Don't worry and in reality will lie I will also say one more thing
that whether you wear hijab or you don't wear hijab, whatever you put on your face whatever makeup whatever Wallah whatever cosmetic surgery they will never be happy with you. While untitled are unclear who do well and NESARA had tattered Tabby I mean letter home until you become a Jew or a Christian they will never be happy with you. And that's why we see these Yanni, Willa Misaki. People, they try to take off the hijab or reduce the hijab or wear makeup to fit in for life don't fit in. I'm telling you doesn't matter what your skin color is, it doesn't matter what you wear, you will not fit in with these people until you take their religion. So don't bother.
Why try just me do what pleases Allah and then worry about the people after that because Allah subhanaw taala said in a Latina woman or Amarillo Saudi had, say a GI Lula home or a man who would those people who believe into righteous deeds, Allah will put love for them on the earth.
You will find people that will support you, you will find people that will defend you. And if you find a certain place difficult, don't be frightened to make Hijra. And when I say hatred, I don't even mean to a Muslim country. But there is even hatred from a place which is worse to a place which is better. If you find that a particular city is hard for you, all you find that particular area of the city is really hard for you and people give you a hard time then look to move to a different area. And if you're struggling with that, ask for help first from Allah. And then as people say, Look, I'm looking to move because I'm struggling with my hijab, people are shouting at me and making
comments about me. So if you know of any place where Allah maybe you will find so many people who will say, you know, in sha Allah, Allah will find your place here in sha Allah will try to sort something out, because people want to try to do their best to help in short, long time. So honestly, I say that the UK as a whole is also a place where not every city is the same and not every area is the same. So don't be frightened to move to a different area where in sha Allah hooter, Allah, you feel more comfortable in that hijab, but don't compromise for the sake of people. Because this will bring you Allah's Anger and the people will still never be happy with you. That's why the best thing
you can do Wallahi my advice is to completely disconnect your heart from what people think about you.
Because Allah when you when you're worried about what people think about you, you'll never ever be happy. You'll always be miserable. Yes, take beneficial nasiha I don't mean that. Like if somebody gives you good advice, it says, Look, I've seen this about you or you should improve this take beneficial nasiha but don't just live with it. And for me, Wallah I be I'll be honest, I know it's a bit of a different question, but I it's important as well.
When I say Don't, don't be attached to what people think of you, I don't care if it's mad, or if it's them. I don't care if they praise you or if they curse you. For me. It's the same I don't it doesn't bother me at all. Someone says oh, you know lurcher?
Someone says, oh, it's the best someone's is the worst wildlife law or ballet. I don't care at all. Whether you think it's the best or you think it's the worst. What I care about is if I made a mistake, I correct it. And if I did something I like accepted it. As for what the people think, actually praise away your praise means nothing to me. And criticize a way for your criticism doesn't mean anything to me, unless it's based upon knowledge. And if it's based upon knowledge, then we do our best to implement it. Otherwise we want Allah's acceptance not the acceptance of the people. And that's why I see some people they're so miserable in their life because they're so attached to what
other people think of them and they live their life worrying about what next door neighbors think of what this person thinks of me and do people like me or don't like me? I give some advice will lie. Just think only about Allah. Take beneficial criticism Don't misunderstand. If someone gives you criticism that is based on knowledge and has a benefit to it take or otherwise will lie the people
their judgments about you don't count for anything.
And allies which almost best you're going to the question
okay for the brothers and the brothers a lot of questions if the sisters have more keep going.
Is going to the hospital lessons lectures and the reason for assistant. The
assistant can leave the home to come to a lecture by she needs to have certain conditions. The first condition is that she can leave the home in a way that is a obedience to Allah and not disobedient. So the way she wears the way she dresses the way she behaves. The second condition is that she doesn't put herself in danger.
In doing so, like she doesn't put herself in some danger, for example, there are some times it's not safe. For example, She came in the middle of the night to class at after Isha or something. And the area's not safe. No. So she has to be safe. And she has to leave the home in a way that is pleasing to Allah. And she has to have the permission of her guardian.
In general, any there might be some issues in that, but in general, she has to have the permission of her guardian and the one that's responsible for her.
And if she fulfills that, then there's no harm. And if she can catch the lecture at home also, there is no harm and the matter is up to her to try to talk to her guardian and her, for example, husband or father to discuss about what is best in the situation that she's in? I can there is no harm in her coming to the masjid. If she wants to come to seek beneficial knowledge. The prophets Isom said Let him not only sacrament masajid don't stop your women from going to the Masjid wobbu 205 on the Honda and the houses are better for them.
What are the practical steps in the West that allows us to become closer to our maker.
practical steps to get closer to Allah will lie. There are so many things a person can say but I'm just going to highlight a few. The first one is seeking beneficial knowledge. I keep saying it's like every time I switch your videos on Muhammad I just he keeps on saying about seeking beneficial knowledge. Walleye there is no way to get closer to Allah than by seeking beneficial knowledge and righteous action.
In terms of righteous action Allah subhanaw taala divided into two in the Hadith man idly Walia advocate Ventoux, who will help whoever shows emnity to a Willie of mine I declared war upon them. The first thing is the thorough it the obligatory deeds.
Well, Mata Cara Ilya RTB che in a heartbeat la Amin miftah love to Ali, my servant never came close to me with something more beloved than what I made obligatory for them. So you start with the obligatory what is the obligatory the obligatory is two types.
The obligatory is two types. The first type of what is obligatory is what it's obligatory to do. And we call that the word G but on the far right.
What about the things that it's obligatory to leave? We call that the Mohammed?
I need the things that Allah azza wa jal made haram. So you start by doing what Allah told you to do, and keeping away from what Allah told you to be haram
and then you build upon it.
We know after
you build upon it with the voluntary deeds, whether I sell it at a horrible eladia benowa Phil Hector or Heba My servant keeps on doing voluntary deeds until I love him.
So getting close to Allah with beneficial knowledge and righteous action righteous action is two things start with what Allah made obligatory which means doing what you have to and leaving what is haram and then build upon it in the voluntary does does that mean you do everything that Allah made obligatory? It doesn't work like that. But in each area of your Ibadah in each area of your life, you try to look at look, am I doing my five daily prayers? Yes. Am I missing them? Nor am I deleting them? No. Okay, now let's work on my sunnah press. Am I giving my obligatory Zakah? Yes, am I missing it? Nor am I delaying it past its time? No. Okay, now I'm going to work on voluntary charity
and so unlike that in each aspect of your, of your life type.
So we said beneficial knowledge and righteous action which is based upon the philosophy done in our field, the obligatory deeds and the voluntary deeds, specifically, certain things that bring you nearer to Allah. One of the I'm going to bring you three more. Number one reciting the Quran, reciting the Quran and thinking about it and pondering over it is one of the things that brings you very close to Allah make yourself aware of it. And it's my advice to myself and I'll see Hanif See, I'm advising myself first and then I'm advising the other people. The first thing I'm advising you is make yourself a word of the Quran, a piece of the Quran every day I read this piece of the Quran
for example, I'm going to divide the Quran amateur cell if the majority of the cell if they finish the Quran every 10 days outside of Ramadan.
In most people, the average Muslim in the early generations they finished the Quran every 10 days outside of Ramadan
if every month no problem,
but you finish for example every month means one Jews every single day you finish it and the next day and the next day and you go back again. If you're memorizing the Quran, one just is not enough evidence you cannot you cannot survive with one because you cannot keep the Quran in your head.
You need probably at least two if not
Three Jews a day if you memorize the whole Quran to keep it in your mind, you have to have a world of two to three Jews every day.
Thinking about the Quran
if Allah today Barone Al Quran, why don't they reflect and think about the Quran.
The second thing I'm going to give you is, I'm going to give you getting close to Allah by fighting against yourself, Mujahideen to neffs we all have things we do wrong, like certain things. For example, someone has a bad habit of using bad language. And it's just a bad habit. It just it comes out it's a bad habit. So they strive against themselves and they bite their tongue and they try not to do it until they get rid of this habit. This is one of the things that makes you very close to Allah.
And the third one I'm going to mention is helping other people. Whenever you find that you're struggling in your life, remember what the Prophet SAW said well Allah Who via only allowed to Mercan Abdul fi only Allah will help you as much as you help other people. So do your best to help other people and Allah azza wa jal will help you
A little off topic.
So as you can tell, what are the volumes does one need to work a job? Is it mandatory to face that?
We come back to it in Sharla
rulings of security law, we will come back we will answer Inshallah, but I'll come back to it. Because I'm fine. I will not. Okay, go on go give me that one. And then I'll answer the security that we want at the end of the show. What is your advice for me and my family as I'm invited to a wedding or close family members, maternal aunts found their family when by us not practicing and our family. We only see that very rarely. And there'll be effectively to keep advertisement safe for lobbying community. I won't unsure whether they will use music or whether they will have any evil social segregation will be sufficient. So
I'll tell you what, I feel comfortable with the music. I will only temporarily level service to the house before our small hair garden family. Is it okay to go for a little while? Should I take my children to their medium up or break or family ties with such?
So this question, I'm going to generalize it to give it to make it as beneficial for everybody as possible. is about going to a wedding, or the associated functions of a wedding the night before the night after all this different different parts of the wedding there were Lima that he kept all that stuff. When the people either there are key that is wrong. So they have wrong belief about Allah and about Islam, or they're not practicing Islam properly.
So in reality, we must keep ties with our relatives. Allah azza wa jal said for Hell, I say to interval Latham, and to FSI to fill out the what to call theory or hammock. Do you think that if you turn away you will cause corruption in the earth and break off your family ties? And how will these people come from this false aqidah to the Sunnah, if it's not through Allah and then through people calling them to the correct belief.
At the same time, you cannot support and aid someone in something that is wrong. Allah azza wa jal said what are our know I'll be river Taqwa. Well, that I wonder if we will cooperate upon righteousness.
And upon leaving sin, but don't cooperate in sin and transgression. And Allah subhanaw taala commanded us when you hear
an either Samaritan it law hook for will be her. When you hear the Ayat of Allah being disbelieved in or you hear people making fun of it, fella taco man whom had Taya who goofy Hadith anxiety, don't sit with people when they're doing these evils until they go to a different discussion.
As for the presence of mooncup, in a gathering, there are two situations. One is that you can go and reduce that monkey meaning that when you go out of your Haber, your you know, your the way they see you the respect they have for you. Yeah, fair enough, we'll turn off the music. Fair enough, we will, you know, we'll let you sit separately, because they see from you and they want to respect you in that way. So this is good for you to go if you're going to reduce the evil if you're not going to reduce the evil and it's going to make it worse. Look for a way to keep those ties without necessarily being directly involved. So maybe you go you greet the bride, you know for the sister
she goes greet the bride, greet the family, give them a Salam make to ask for them as goodness for them. But apologize any privately. You don't have to go to everybody and say I'm not here
Because, but you know, apologize to the person who invited you that look, you know how I feel about the music and things like that, and the men and women sitting together, but I wouldn't want to miss the chance to come and congratulate you upon your wedding. And to ask Allah to bless you in it, and please forgive me that I'm not able to stay. Now either then they reduce the music and separate the people and whatever for your money out of respect for you and hamdulillah or anyways, you you know, you did the lead, you reduce the harm upon the family.
If it's not possible, because the event is just full of monks that you can't even go inside the home, then at least go and see them before the wedding or go and see them after, when they'll have little gatherings the family will get together or before the wedding, go there, greet them, congratulate them.
And you say kind words to them, Be soft with them and gentle with them, call them to the right thing. And explain to them gently and nicely that you know how I am and you know that it's not right to have these kinds of things going on and you know that I'm not in favor of these sort of things, you know, that it's Allah made it haram and you know, for that reason, I'm not going to be able to come back, I don't want to lose this opportunity to keep good ties with you to come and see you to congratulate you bring them a gift, any give them a gift for the wedding, any all of these things, keep the ties with them, but don't participate in America. However, sometimes you will go to a
wedding, especially people who are seen as being knowledgeable or, you know, people who are practicing that you will go to a wedding and they might reduce the munkar for you.
And it's not they should reduce it for Allah, but they might you know, you come in and they say, okay, you know, out of respect, we'll turn the music off and out of respect, you know, like,
at least that something. So the scholars, they say this kind of situation, you should go because you're reducing the evil even if you can't stop it completely. But even if the evil is very, very severe, at least at least go and Yanni at a different time and offer your congratulations the same with funeral. If someone's going to do a funeral they're going to do all kinds of weird stuff and Schnittke out and Vidin whatever. And you can't stop it and you can't be a part of it. But at least you can go to the family before the funeral and offer your condolences and you know you can at least make to ask for the dead person Allah forgives them and so on and try to make people see the
goodness that is in following the Sunnah and call them to practicing the Sunnah as much as you can, but you have to keep away from these things which are McCarthy's things which are evil and Allah azza wa jal knows best Okay, the right the rulings of
Sudha tilava. So the first thing that we understood
the first thing that we understood is that sujood a Tilawat it comes in 15 places in the Quran.
It starts at the end of sortal Wrath
and the last place is at the end of Surah ACARA ACARA this Mira Baker lady her
the last one Kela Tutera who was should walk trip
if a believer reads them outside of the salah they make sujood
and the correct opinion I'm reading you the statement of shift members Rahim Allah Allah is that there is no need for Tahara in it and it's not necessary
for it to have Tahara and he said well off Volvo and you kept Vera tech below 10 feet uh well, he had found out that you make the tech Pyrrha Allahu Akbar when you go down, but you don't need to make it when you come up.
And you say the same thing that you say in the sujood for the Salah, Subhan Allah Bill Allah Subhanallah PL Allah and you make to our whatever
is easy. And there is no Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah. And the better opinion is that there is no tech below when you come up from it.
There was another part of the question, wasn't that the issue of hijab
She's a manager and facing
she said it's not necessary.
He says so obliged.
He said, This is you're going you you know you're going you are lowering yourself before Allah. Like when you Say Subhan Allah and like when you say La Ilaha illa Allah.
So he said
there is no need for Waldo. He said well haha and
Test Judah, we're here make sure to Roz and she can make sujood when her head is uncovered, because not when she's improperly dressed, because that's not befitting in front of Allah, but she's maybe wearing you know her clothing, she's not wearing a hijab, because this is the purpose of it is Hodor is lowering yourself
azza wa jal
as they asked about the qibla, right
she said it's better, she'll combos he said, well off little and use cheddar ill Qiblah is better than the person makes to do to the Qibla and better for them to have Waldo. And better for them to be properly covered.
But if the person didn't do that,
then it wouldn't be harmful. He said, As for the majority, they said it must be towards the Qibla.
And the shift he said, Well, alcohol, Fidelio and now who you will have will be the Karela de Sala. He said the what is apparent is that this is something connected to vicar, not to Salah, so those who connected it to Salah said you have to face the Qibla and those who connected it to vicar. They said just like you don't say you don't have to say subhanallah facing the Qibla you don't have to make it yourself. But there's no doubt he said like in an Afghan Well, Allah and your corner soju ll Qibla this is what is better and more deserving. corrigin minarchy left to get out of the disagreement between the scholars on that issue.
Last one from the sisters well, it doesn't have to be both I mean like for now children will ask the brothers
moving up for work or going on or they will ask
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said
lie a Hindu Limra Tim taught me Nabila he will Yeoman
and to serve your ill will Mojave Macron Oh come on, is not allowed for any woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to travel anywhere without a Maha
and that's the stronger opinion that's the correct opinion. It doesn't matter if she's in a group of women it doesn't matter if it's several times. If it's a traveling of obedience, the only time she can travel without a Muharram is for highlighted Dora in a state of necessity and in this state of necessity then it's very simple. She should travel in the safest way possible so maybe she can travel with a sister and that sister's husband because she has no choice it's it's adult order or hijacked any Hajra Massa a very big need for her she can also for a very very big need but she can't go to Hajj without a Macron and she can't
Yanni go on holiday with our Muhammad go to work any traveling without what is traveling traveling is left to the road if in reality there is no Islamic definition but approximately if we said
you know 45 Miles 40 Miles 45 Miles something like that. That's not a shower a definition but just something creepy. Just to give you a rough idea of what traveling is
something along those lines in is approximately the distance which is considered traveling but it could be less in some places and in for example, Southampton to Portsmouth How far is that?
20 months and Nobody considers it traveling right? So nobody makes cassava and Jim and so so for example, Southampton to Portsmouth Nobody considers it traveling. What about for example, your brother goes to Cornwall How far is that
how long does it take biker
four hours suffer right everyone cold and wide and nobody had any actually laughed at this is suffer and he had he makes cancer in German. But there might be some distances where you know it's up and down like some people are like yeah, I would say it's traveling I wouldn't that may an ebook in MLA or ebook leave that which you doubt for that which you don't doubt pipe will give the brothers a chance now.
this question earlier?
Is it appropriate for an organization to use music videos to raise money to build muscle?
The reason why is because I've had first hand experience with this recently and I did try and give this year just through practice but what what it told me is that the community to try and
build the masjid for okay with that, so then they think that the end justifies the means. This is a very big problem. The Gen
Rule idea that the ends justify the means is foreign to Islam. Islam doesn't have that any the means they take the same rulings any So, for example, if someone says for example, can I raise money for a masjid by robbing a bank?
All of you would say no, I'm really I'm not being like I'm not being flippant about being really serious. All of us would say no, because you would say robbing a bank is haram
and you can't raise money with something haram even if you want to build a masjid with it. Or someone says that that's all I can do. The Masjid will not be built unless I robbed this bank. I have no money. I have no ability to do it. i The only thing I know how to do is I'm very good at robbing people. And the only thing I know how to do is rob a bank. You would still say absolutely haram everyone in this room and everyone watching would say haram type then is not the issue with music to know whether music is halal or haram. And if we established that music is haram, what is then the difference between those two things? If you all said University No way can you steal money
to fund the Masjid? Because stealing money is haram.
Then no way also can you raise a masjid by musical events concerts, videos with music and also if we established that music is haram and music is haram by the text of the Quran. And by the text of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam type what about the text of the Quran? It came in the Quran in more than one place.
the clear places in which Allah prohibited music in the Quran is iron number six and Surah lokmat Wamena Nassima yesterday Allah will hottie feeling obey Allah and Sevilla Hebrew by the way a turkey that her whose hola que la Hamada Moorhead.
From those people or those who purchase less well, Hadith this word la will Hadith for the Arabs it comes with only one meaning and that is music.
That is what the Arabs understood by this word, go back to the old any Arabic poetry and the Arabic dictionaries. This word the Arabs understood music
from the people or those who purchase
Lawwell, Hadith any pointless speech to misguide people from the Path of Allah without knowledge and they take it as a ridicule or as a joke. It is they who will have a severe punishment.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari but Al Bukhari narrated this
al-baha generate this hadith he narrated it more Allah
He narrated it more alaka what does that mean? He narrated this hadith
without a connected chain. However, the chain has been connected outside of of sustainable hiring, annual Buhari, he considered it to be authentic.
And he mentioned that he says what color he shall begin to unmark

The hadith narrated
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said lash Robin Nasser mean Almighty Alhambra.

And then he said, You are reserved for Allah who see him in the eyes if well Mohan yet

Yes, if Allah who became will art Allah will cause the earth to swallow them up. YJ
Alameen homall Cara data well, Hannah's here and Allah will turn them into monkeys and pigs
for the Prohibition of music came in the Quran, Anderson. So just as we said, that is not permissible to steal money to raise a masjid. So it's also not permissible to use music to raise MSG like someone says we'll all do a concert or singing girls, or we'll play instruments or we'll sing for people and get them to give us money or we'll put music in our videos for people. As for people saying that some people in the masjid are okay with it. In reality, our religion is not based upon whether some people are okay with it or not. I mean, that could be the case there could be people in the masjid say I don't believe so. Heidi's authentic. I don't agree with your Tafseer of the iron so
Look, man, okay, but that's your individual preference. That's not a Dedede any what you feel like is not ideally I like it. That's not a delete. That's not an evidence in Islam. What you say to people don't do it like this. Don't waste your deeds. Man. Amla, amla laser, Allah, He Emeril now for whoever, whoever does an action, it's not in accordance with our Sunette will be rejected. Don't waste your deeds by doing something which is so good building a masjid for the sake of Allah, but doing it in a way that is in a way that is haram. It's not going to bring anybody any good. Allah Who?
So obviously with the holiday period coming up here halloween christmas now. So for those rebirths who live with our families to do celebrate these holidays, how do we go about not celebrating them without alienating our family from ourselves or from Islam as a whole? was a very good question. That's an excellent question. So the question is about
people who live with non Muslim family and the non Muslim family. Now we're getting into though that season or where they have a lot of celebrations. So it could be anything from Halloween, you know, then you're going into the time towards Christmas, and New Year. And all of the other celebrations they have in this time, they have a lot of different things that people celebrate in this time.
The first thing is to remember the principle without wind or adorability with Toccoa. Walter, I want to add it if Muller doesn't cooperate upon righteousness and keeping away from sin, but don't cooperate in sin and transgression. So it's really important that we don't involve ourselves, particularly because many of these events are built upon not just sin. We talked about the wedding, which is built upon sin, you know, men and women are together, women are not covered music is playing, but that's a sin. What about something that's built upon schicke making a partner with Allah? So it's much, much worse. So now, we have to ask ourselves, how do we keep away from it
without alienating, as you said, the question our families, so I think the first thing is to educate our families about what we believe, because the worst thing is when the family doesn't understand what they can and can't do. So it makes them upset, everybody gets upset, or you didn't tell us you won't celebrate? Why, like, make it clear from the beginning, that honestly, look, I know, Christmas is coming up. And I know you're gonna want to get together. And I know you don't see it as a religious day, you're telling me I don't even believe it's got any connection to religion. But for me, it is a religious day. So I can't be a part of that. The next thing is, once you've educated
them, is that you really need to offer an alternative to them. Because if we don't give them an alternative, it's like saying to them, Look, I'm not going to come together with you at Christmas, I'm not going to meet you on this day, I'm not going to celebrate New Year with you. And they just like
there's nothing for me in this. Give them something. So for example, say any other day, you know, for example, before Christmas, you your family is coming here and there. I'm not going to meet you on Christmas Eve, I'm not going to meet you on Christmas Day with these dinners and everything. But you know what it is in the week before, if the family are here, I would love to take you guys out, we eat together, or I'll organize some food for you guys that's not associated with that Festival. It's not their food. And it's not the time of their festival. Because some people will say, Look, you know, your uncles are coming, your cousins are coming people coming from other places you never
see them. Why can't you meet them? No problem. I'll meet them. But I have two conditions. The first one is it's not on their day, the day that's associated with their worship. And the second thing is it's not their food or their customs and I'm not eating turkey, even if it's had I'm not even during the things that they have on that day and eat turkey any other day of the year. I'm not eating it on that day, because I'm not going to copy their religious customs. But obviously the way you explain to them can't be so rough and tough. You have to be gentle with them and say look, you have to understand that these things are associated with religion, even if you don't see it to be religious,
but they are associated with religion. So look, let's meet up the day after Boxing Day. No, I'm not doing Christmas Eve I'm not doing Christmas Day. I'm not doing boxing day today. I
After, let's meet up in Sharla, all of us meet up, we take the family out, we go somewhere nice. We spend some time together, we connect with a family. We'll have food, all the things you want, but not on your day and not the food that is custom for those people at that time. And I think it's not easy because they do come back with you like, you're not respecting us. We respect you. That's a common one. We're respecting you. We respect your religion, we allow you to celebrate it, and you don't let us celebrate Christmas. Now this is hard. Because the reality is
that there is truth and falsehood. That's the reality. The reality is there is hack and Boulton. Why am I the guy that happy in love, dada, what is after truth except falsehood? So for I'll be honest with you, Islam is not in this
tolerant tyranny. I was going to say fair, but I mean, Islam is always fair. But Islam is not tolerant. It's not like okay, you know, what do Lao Tzu the hero for you the hero, they want you to compromise and then they're offering to compromise.
Islam doesn't doesn't do that. We can't take part for me, it's a major sin, which might even take a person out of their religion, to celebrate a day that is associated with another religious belief. Or even, it's forbidden for me to celebrate a day that's not even associated with a religious belief. So it's very important
that a person is clear about it, gentle about it, give them plenty of time to plan around plenty of alternatives. I remember when I was younger, is to say to my parents, they used to be like insistent on Christmas presents and birthday presents
insistent on Christmas presents and birthday presents. And I saw they just wanted to make me happy and they wanted me to be happy and they wanted me. They wanted to be generous. So I said to them, Look, I can't take Christmas and birthday presents. But you know what it is in Islam, we have two days of eight. Adel feta Adriatica so if you want to give me the presents you would have given me at Christmas on Eid Alfetta. And you want to give me the presents you would have given me on my birthday at either Lapa. You can still give me presents. But you know, it's not associated with those days. Even if you want to give me a present that's not associated with any DC I don't want to
celebrate your religion, you're not going to celebrate mine. Okay, we can give each other presents. On any day. We can give each other presents, you know, at the end of January or the beginning of February, but not the 14th. And we can give each other presents in any any other day.
And he presents make people love each other. But we can't. And if you're okay giving it to me on Eid Al Hamdulillah if you're not give it any other day, but don't make it a day that's associated with religion or something that's associated with non Muslims. And that's part of my religion. Let come Dino come well, yeah, Dean. I stuff. But if you're open and honest, the pain is short lived in sha Allah. But when you try to hide it and get around it, and yeah, I'll come for Christmas dinner. But it's not Christmas dinner. For me. It's the dinner that takes place on that day, that might be Christmas Day. It's very difficult when you're doing that, like you end up making them feel worse
because in the end, you know that what you're doing is wrong. And it causes more tension in the family. So I feel that just be honest with him. If If Allah if somebody says
they say look, I cannot, this family will not accept me. Then I say well, I bet you leave that day. Go stay in a hotel. Hotels are cheap. You know, have you ever noticed that? hotels on Christmas day? Love very cheap. You can go stay in a nice hotel somewhere, go on a holiday, don't tell them it's to avoid Christmas if they're going to give you a hard time. See I've got a winter holiday booked one week 23rd of December.
Or one and a half weeks 23rd of December and I'm back on. I'm coming back end maybe after New Year.
Call us two weeks, two and a half weeks, whatever it is, I'm going to come back on this. I'm not You're not going to see me on 23rd December I'm gone. Give me 10 days third of January I'm back. So winter holiday very good deal. Just find it go. Well go anywhere you want. Just get out. And if you can tell them about it and be honest Alhamdulillah if you're really struggling to tell them just tell them that opportunity came up
an opportune a really good opportunity came up to travel. So I'm going to take this opportunity and forgive me that I'm not going to be around for the celebrations
you know, anyways, you know I'm not comfortable celebrating them. That's the best I can advise a person to do along those best.
More will What
do you have any advice for someone trying to convey? But they are finding it difficult and often predictor parts they are being punished for forgetting. Would it be better to stop memorizing and focus on just with sedation
type. This is a beautiful question about health, people struggling with HIV.
In reality, my preference there are a lot of different ways of memorizing. There's a lot of different ways of doing health.
But there are certain kinds of universal truths when it comes to health.
The first thing is that heft with a teacher will always be better than health without a teacher. This is a universal truth, there is no stiff knack for it. There is no exception for it, except Allah azza wa jal knows best and but as I see, there is no exception to the rule heighth with a teacher will always be better than HIF. Without a teacher, that doesn't mean any teacher, you have to find the right person for you. But having someone to help you and monitor your memorization will always be better. That's the first thing. The second thing is there are three types of health. There is no fourth
one is Heffington Jegede, new hefte. You never memorized it before. This is your new page.
The other one is Heffington Corrib Hefe that you recently memorized.
IE, you've memorized it, it's not really firm in there. But it's it's there and have done Kadeem memorization that you've memorized and it's solid, there is no fourth type. There's your new heft, there's your nearly new heft, and there's your old hips, that's it.
There are different ways to handle it. But the way that I personally do it
I say we start with, and it's depends you can do either. But for example, you start with your old if that's your wilt every day.
So not your old habits, you start with your nearly new have have them carry, you start with your almost new health, okay. And this almost new health, you give the most attention to it. Because it's the one that's most likely to go from you. As for the new one, it never came yet. So there is nothing to go. But the new one that is nearly new, this is the one you're most likely to make the error in. So you give your time to this the most of your time you give it to him, don't cut it.
Until you're reading it without making mistakes. You keep on it, you don't go to your fifth digit. When you're reading it well without mistakes. Now you can go on to your new page.
And you can memorize it and that new page becomes party have fun curry, almost nearly new. And again, you revise it until you can revise it without mistakes, then you move on. As for your histone Khadim. You do it after that. And you do it from your wizard you read a wizard of the Quran. When you see that you're making mistakes in something that is codeine, for example, you started reading certain milk you memorize the ages ago and now you're making mistakes in it. So what are you going to do that becomes hurtful, curry it becomes your hip that is nearly new and you again revise, revise, revise, revise, revise, keep going. So for example, someone is memorizing right now. Surah
Right now at this moment in time, they are memorizing
they're memorizing sorts of fat.
So if they right now that's the new Surah that they're memorizing right now. That means that salt will hurt you a lot Soto cazzola cough sorta daddy yet. This is probably nearly new, it's not really solid. where might they be solid up to they might say a look up to for example.
Sora, let's say a ramen or Sawtell Maratea cone. I know it really well.
Let's say up to sort of ramen. I know really well. How gerat Casa Daria tall. And a Niger male Kumar is, you know, it's good, but it's not perfect. So every day you read that portion that is nearly new for you. But while you're reading your wills, while you're reading your regular Quran, you realize that you made a mistake in sort of hashing.
Now salted hash, it gets added on to the list of nearly new and you do every single day until you read it without mistakes. And then again, you progress like that. When you're doing really well on your newly new HIV, you take a new page. This is a good option. Other people they say the problem with this is it means you're very slow to progress. So you can do another thing, which is you always take a new page every day. But that if you're making too many mistakes in your head after that, then you stop taking a new page and you revise that's also an option.
So there are three types of hips, your new hips, your nearly new hips, and your old health. When you separate it like that you treat each one separately. So old hips should
rarely have a mistake in it. Rarely, it's okay if it's just a one off, it doesn't matter. But it shouldn't be something that's a rare, like a regular thing that you have mistaken, you're old. If you're nearly new, you expect to have mistakes in it.
As for your new health, in reality, there are a couple of key points. The first one is you have two key variables,
maybe three, but you have two key, I believe two key variables. One is how many times you repeat it. And one is how long
of a piece you memorize at once. So start off with a very small amount of content repeated many many times because there are two types of health true health and false health. False health is like take any I can take any INR to open the Quran and any I
open it in
sort of no
just go down to any any item from sort of normal speak any iron out straight to pick a sort of that most people don't know. But if I just pick any idea from sort of normal
and I say for example,
will you be in Hola Hola, como IRT will LA who aren't even hacky.
If I repeat this three, four times, everyone in this room, memorize it, promise. But if I asked you 10 minutes later,
most people won't be there.
So this is what we call headphone cares IP. It's a false HIF. It's telling you you memorize but you didn't. So you need to do more than that 50 times 100 times while you be in law, who there Kuhlman
wala who earned him on hacking, where you will be in Hola Hola, como te wala Ydm on hacking, and you keep repeating it again and again and again. And again 50 times 100 times until it's stuck. Then when you go to the next idea, this is the next point.
When you go to the next idea, what you don't do is memorize that is separately
in a Levina you won't know you don't memorize it separately. Now you must connect it to the IRB for why you will be in all law Hola, como te wala who aren't even Hakeem, in Medina you have born so you must connect the ayat together. Otherwise what happens? People memorize pages separately right? One page then another page, one wedge, then another wedge like that. And then what happens is they cannot connect a page to a page. So you see them in Salah fetcher is one page. No way I can read more than one page because I don't know how to connect one page to another one. You must connect it. Pipe how much revision must you do? I would say for your old Heath. It's very simple.
The first five
jewels of the Quran, you can get away with reading one just a day.
So if you have is five Jews or less, you can get away with men with you can get away with revising one Jews a day. If you're unjust and man just Tabata, you should read them every single day just if you're on it, you should read every single day.
If you're up to five Jews, you can read one Jews a day from five Jews up to about 20 Jews. So that's the next 15 Jews you can get away with reading two a day.
Once you go past 20 Jews, you should end to read three Jews of revision three hours of revision every single day.
If you do this, and if when you finish the Quran, you make your most effort for about two to three years in making it really really solid. Inshallah that is going to be like it's written on a stone, it's not going to go and I don't say that because I achieved it. I don't believe my hips is like that. But it's the more you do it, the more you realize where you went wrong, right? Like you analyze like for me, for example, I know that when I first did my first few exam, I couldn't read the Quran. So I was listening and repeating. So I still think that majors are AMA and Kabbalah is weaker than the rest of the Quran. For me even though I read it to my shift, I read it to my shift
many times. But I still feel it's weak for me because I was at that time I was a new Muslim I couldn't read. So I will just listen and repeat, listen and repeat. And the ones that I learned later I feel that my I doubt my my re citation is better than the ones that I learned earlier, even though we tried to correct it, but it is what it is. So a person looks at why they went wrong and they begin to correct. never despair, and he don't despair at all. And also remember that the Quran has what we call a double hammer to Quran, the manners of the people who carry the Quran. So if you don't have the manners of the one who carries the Quran in their heart, Allah will not give you the
to carry in your heart or Allah will give it to you and take it away from you. You have to have the manners that the Quran brought. So you carry the Quran and you represent the Quran and if you do that Allah subhanaw taala will increase and make it firm in your heart. As for those people who completed their health, I would advise that they spend around two years after completing it to make it really really strong before they go for another Kira or rewire really make it absolutely rock solid. After that, I would recommend they don't stop. But they go for the Kadima of a shelter via Hilson Amani wants you to honey and they take the introduction to it and then they memorize another
rewire like they memorize the first one. So they don't learn it from shelter beer. They go and they learn another rewire like for example sharp
and they learn it like they learned Huff's.
they memorize it again from the very very beginning all the way to sort of tennis
by the way, what order should you memorize the Quran? two options.
Either you memorize the whole Quran back meaning from 30 hat then saltiness sort of falak salty lifeless Tibet yada sorta Nasser salts okay if you don't you go backwards or you go backwards up to five exile and then you go forwards from Bukhara, whichever you prefer, but I find going forward from a buckler is good, but Buckler Al Baqarah is very long, so long as surah in the Quran, so some people get disheartened, because as soon as they get to Surah Al gerat, they take him or Surah Kahf they take him straight to sort of Bukhara so I actually prefer now that you go backwards all the way and you go all the way backwards. So the last Surah that you do is sort of Bukhara because it's then
it's more achievable for you. But if you do five exile from the back, and then you do
sort of Bacara from the front, there's no inshallah ha minute.
As I said, after you finish, and you made it solid, now what you're going to do is you're going to take a new rewire a new style of reading the Quran, but you're going to learn it like Hewlett Huff's, same heft with a teacher, page one, page two, page three, it'll be quicker because you already know the pages, but just some changes in it. Then what you're going to do is take another rewire a third rewire until now, you have not started to learn from a shelter B you are learning just you memorize your third way of reciting the Quran. For example, you're going to watch NFL
and watch and nothing from a shelter B, but you're going to do it with your teacher from Bukhara until certain pneus when you've done three. Now what you can do is you don't need to do the others like that you can just learn the rules of each one. Why do you need about three because it will teach you how to manage the different rules and what they sound like. So you learn the difference, for example, between
the sound which is a complete end the sound which is an LF, and the pronunciation of that Alif MK Surah, which comes out with the sound like AI and the one that is Boehner Boehner, the one that is between the two. So you will learn the difference between Musa and musei and Musa you learn the difference between the three and you read it to your teacher. So now you take shelter beer from beginning to end.
matinee shot, you take Harrelson Emanuel, which are tiny from beginning to end, and then you learn it like that. And from there, you can finish the karate you take $1. And then you take playbar to Nisha, and you finish the karate or cupola or Sahara. And that's not to say that I did it but just to say that this is the journey that we are trying to do. For this is my advice that people don't stop they keep on memorizing because this will make you solid. I'll be honest, when I started reading, wash, I realized the weakness I had in house. I didn't know how weak my house was until I started reading wash. I thought my house was
rock solid. And I started reading wash and I realized I go back and you need to fix your house. For like that any you keep pushing yourself. Otherwise, when you stay like that you stay stuck in a place you never progress and he at least start progressing bit by bit. Far that's what I think about the issue of memorizing the Quran. And don't be disheartened. It feels like a big journey when you're unsorted. When you're on you know sort of never just ama it feels like the whole world is ahead of you Wallah in the end it doesn't take as long as you think it will take, just keep on pushing but don't accept this hipcamp This false have just keep pushing yourself and keep reading
again and again and again. And again. Do it 100 times if 100 times not enough, do it 200 times each if if 200 times not enough, do it 400 times each I don't worry about it, just do it. You'll get done and
It's amazing. And I finished with this. Many, many people don't think
how big is the Quran the most half 600 bit pages, 600 pages approximately.
If you did one page a day, you would finish in less than two years. If you did half a page a day, half a page a day, you would finish in how long? Any less than four years, any three years. tiny bits. Yeah.
If you did a quarter of a page a day, still within maybe six years to seven years you will finish.
You know, if you did one line a day still, you know you can like there are 15 lines on the page, right? Even one line a day Subhanallah in Subhanallah, if you did one line a day, in a month, you completed two pages.
Online, you know, it's amazing what you could achieve. And there are people sitting who didn't even memorize Piersol swore the baby sorrows. One Line a Day, in a month, you can finish two pages by just one line a day Subhanallah that means inside of your first year, you already finished yours.
And trust me, you will not stay on a line a day. Because a line a day in the beginning will be enough. The next year you do two lines a day. And now you finish Tabarak and you finish cut salmon. And then the next year you can do you can go to a quarter page a day. And by the end of it Subhanallah you will finish but the one who isn't progressing because they're not. They're trying to take too much too quickly. Or they're not reading at all this person is not going to finish and Allah as gentle as best as for the issue of punishment of forgetting the Quran. Forgetting the Quran, the punishment is of two types. One is being negligent with the Quran by not revising it, and
the other one is not acting upon it. As for trying to memorize the Quran and being caused to forget a line or missing a word or forgetting a word. That's not a sin in the first place. But the sin is two types being negligent with regard to revising the Quran and letting it go or the sin is not acting upon what you have memorized her though Allahu wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala early he will sappy ah mine
