Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam al Abdullah who are suli Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi mehreen
is so nice to have the kids class back with kids again hamdulillah
I don't know if you guys have been following what we were doing during the kids class.
In the days where you weren't able to come, we able to do keep keep going with the class a little bit on and off, no problem. So we just have a little recap what we've been talking about in the previous two lessons. Yes, use of
getting ready for the prayer. So getting yourself ready to pray, and what you need to be able to pray. And all of this is before you pray, right. None of this is talking about during the prayer is all talking about before you actually stand up or before you actually start the prayer.
So let's see. My second question is how many of the things that you need before you pray? Can you remember?
Okay, go on it one more go.
we'll do a pure EFT I mean, Moodle oho solo both here.
Clean clothing, and also what else needs to be cleaned?
Where you're going to your body your clothes and where you pray. Okay, stop, because now I have to ask someone else to complete. You got three. You want to complete go on? Face the Tabler.
Be a Muslim be sane. Okay. nomads people. Yeah.
Yeah, still some.
No one else has one more. Go on. That time for the prayer. And still someone didn't get something about which is very important.
proper clothing. So what have we covered already? Already, we've covered
And we've spoken a lot about purification. Now we're going to inshallah talk about, we have covered intention a little bit, but we're going to talk about the remaining things that we haven't spoken about yet. So the very first, which of those Do you think comes first of all the things that were mentioned? Which one do you think comes first?
Go unseen. What do you think?
intention kind of comes last in a way your right intention comes first in the prayer. But it probably comes last because it's the by the time you've done everything else, right? Like but this is about getting ready for the prayer was the very first thing.
You probably have those things you want to do. Yes, no.
Buddha purification, no problem after that. What do you think?
The time for the prayer?
Because if it's not time for the prayer, then why are we standing facing the Qibla and making our intention and getting ready to say Allahu Akbar, on putting our clothes on to pray, getting all ready to pray. And then suddenly we realize it's not time for the prayer.
It's not time. So we're going to first of all talk about the time for the prayer. Right. I've got a question for you. The time for the prayer. How do Muslims know when it's the right time to pray?
I think a lot of people are going to get this question wrong.
That's my that's why I think
Okay, what do you think is?
Okay, now, everyone, everyone has everyone went by. So the right answer is by looking at the sky by looking at the sun and by looking at the sky.
We're in England. Okay, not all of you are in England, but we're in in
Blood right now. And especially in where we are in the northeast of England, it's not really known for very good weather. And there's a lot of times where you can't really see the sky. What do most people use these days apart from looking at the sky? Yes, happy
clocks, and they use prayer timetables. So over there on the wall, we have a prayer timetable. And it tells us what time that we have to pray each of our five daily prayers. But that's not the original way of telling, that's actually just there to help you when you live in, you know, places that a very cloudy and rain a lot and stuff like that.
But the real way of telling the prayer time, is by looking at the sky. And that's why it's really, really important that from time to time, we actually check our prayer timetable is correct, by looking at the sky. So let's start with the first prayer of the day. What's the first prayer of the day called?
So lots of federal.
I'm standing and I'm looking at the sky.
First of all, what does the sky look like? Before federal?
No, no, no, it doesn't look yellow. orangey. Good try.
completely black, completely dark. You can't see anything at all. Except maybe the stars. And maybe the moon depends in the moonrise. Moon set, but
it's a it's very, very dark before fetcher.
So to see fetcher, which coast, should I be standing on looking at? I want to stand on the beach and look out to see the sunrise. Which coast Am I going to be standing on?
Which direction Am I going to be facing? Sorry, that was a bad I it was a bad question. Okay, I know East because the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. So we right now in Newcastle, we are on the east coast of the UK, the Northeast, right? So we could actually go to time mouth, or Whitney Bay, or anywhere along that part of the coast. And we stand on the beach and we look out to the sea and it's pitch black. It's completely dark.
What are we looking for? To know that fair just started. I don't have my clock. I don't have a prayer timetable. I don't have any idea of the time I'm camping on the beach. As me with my preferred drink of nice hot chocolate with marshmallows in it.
Before we before we haven't started fasting yet it's not fauja. Okay. And then we looking out to the sea. What am I looking for? Yes. Is
sunlight Okay, that's a good start. I'm looking for sunlight. What kind of sunlight American for? Yes, Ayesha.
I'm looking for the sunlight that spreads along the horizon, actually, the first thing you're going to see and I will definitely recommend parents 100% recommend if you're in a place where you can take your children to see this is very, very good. The first thing you're going to see, first of all, you do know that the sun doesn't rise exactly in the east, right?
It changes depending on the season. So you do have to actually find out where abouts The sun is going to be because just standing looking exactly east, you might not see it. But even if you were to type into Google,
the sunrise direction or something like that for the day, it'll tell you roughly where it's going to be. So you're standing and you're looking where the sun's gonna be. The first thing you're going to see is you're going to see some light go upwards. Like
like kind of like a column, right of light, you know, like a pillar of light that just goes up in the sky. And then it goes down and everything becomes black again. Is that fair?
That's fair job, but it's not the federal you want. It's called El fetcher El Cajon, the false federal, not the real one. How do you know the false One, two things. The light is going to come upwards, not outwards. And it's going to get dark again after the light came. So you're standing watching, ready to give the ban
on the beach.
And you see the light come upwards and then it goes dark again.
No, it's not time.
Then you see the light come and it starts to spread. And it starts to get brighter and brighter. This light that spreads a long ways along the horizon, it spreads outwards along the horizon. And it doesn't go dark again. This is El federal sodic, the true federal, this is federal time. And recently, we went out to look for this in Newcastle. And it was pretty close to the prayer time, it wasn't exactly on the prayer time. But we saw it just a little bit over five minutes after the start of the prayer time, we saw the light spread out wide along the horizon. And it kept on getting brighter and brighter and brighter. As soon as you see that light and as soon as it starts to go
wider. That's your photo time. That's when you know that the fetcher time is started. When does the fetcher time end? described to me in the terms of a son don't say to me ends at
a a 13. Don't say to me that ends at 13.
Bright Okay, that's a very good, that's a good description. not quite there. But it's very it's actually true. What you said is true when the sky is completely bright. But there's something a bit more precise than that.
No, you nearly got you got the next time, right. That's the time when you start praying. No, it's not that it when the sun rises. So as soon as you see the edge of the sun come over and rise up. It doesn't have to rise up the whole amount, just the edge just the top of the sun come over the horizon over the land, that vegetation is finished.
If vegetation is finished and you haven't prayed federal, what should you do? prefecture? prefecture no matter what time it is, yeah. But if you you want to be praying federal before that time. Now that time is a time where you're not allowed to pray. Do you know that after fetcher, you're not allowed. You're not allowed to pray. Unless you have a real reason for praying and you've got a real reason for praying. So very good for you ask me a question. What was your question? Why? Answer number one because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, but I'm not that, but I know that. And I know that you know that. But the some of the scholars they mentioned why is because this is a
time where the pagans used to pray to their gods. You know, the people worship the sun, even now, when you see even if you go to, for example, India, places like that you can see people praying to the sun at that time.
That's one of the reasons they give.
When can you start praying again, like normal? Like your voluntary prayers? This is the one that we got before. When the sun rises to the height of a spear. What does that mean?
If you put a spear you know a spear is right. Yeah. A spear. Spear is like about as tall as tall as a person, isn't it? That bit taller,
taller than the person anyway, a spear taller than me. When you see the sun has risen in the sky, to the height of a spear. Then you can start praying. Again. You can pray your voluntary prayers and your sooner type of prayers. You can pray those after that. Okay, what's the second prayer? I'm not sure about voluntary prayers and what obligatory prayers was the second fold prayer of the day. No answers from you all.
Federal is the first one was the second one is
the verb. Okay, here I am, is the middle of the day. So in the middle of the day, England is not very hot. And I'm standing outside and I'm looking up at the sky. What am I looking for?
The time for though? I know looking for the time for door but what is what am I looking for?
So the sky, the sun to be right in the middle of the sky.
But how do you judge the sun's in the middle of the sky? Do I like take a ruler and I measure how much space on that side and how much space on that side? How do I what's the easy way of measuring?
are how what should I look for.
You really want me to stand there with my hand up like that and go.
Shadows have dilla so shadows in the morning get shorter and shorter and shorter as
The sun gets to the middle of the sky.
When the sun's in the middle of the sky, the shadow is as short as it can be, then it starts to get longer on the other side. So the sun rises in the east. That means in the morning, you have a long shadow to the west.
Okay, the West is that way, right, you have the sun rise in the east, and you have a long shadow.
On the other side, as the sun gets higher, the shadow gets smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller. Okay, when the sun's right above, there's almost no shadow. It's not there's no shadow, but there's almost no shadow. And then the shadow starts to move the other way. As soon as the shadow starts to go the other way. That's the time for the whole.
That's the time for all you guys will understand that. Yeah, so you're looking at the shadow gets smaller, smaller, smaller, smaller is more like maybe you have like a stick in the ground or a tree or a lamppost. It's getting smaller, smaller, smaller. Okay, now it started to go the other way and get longer again, now it's the whole time.
So just after the middle of the day, just after the middle of the day, it's the whole time. Okay. When does the whole time finish?
acid. Okay, acid time.
How do we know what acid time is?
Again, I'm outside is acid it's
middle of the day. Now the shadows gone that way. And the afternoon is going on? How do I know that it's acid time.
nearly no, that's the next one. I'm going to ask you that for moderate. Okay. acid is before sunset.
When the shadow is the same height, as the object, for example, me For example, I,
I don't one centimeter about just a bit over six feet tall. When my shadow is
six feet and a bit in length. That's the time for us.
That's the time for us. So if you're looking at let's say, for example, you're looking for you're looking at
what could be a simple example, you're looking at like a little like a lamppost. For example, when the shadow is the same length as the lamppost, because it gets longer and longer and longer and longer when it becomes the same length as the height. The shadow is the same as the height.
That's the time for
That's the time for us
to understand that.
Okay, when does assar finish
that's true a time you can pray all the way up to Margaret. But that's not the there's a time that it finishes even though you can pray up to Margaret but there's a proper time that it finishes
it's not very accurate just before Mother's Day, I need something more accurate.
It finishes when the sun becomes golden in color.
Have you heard of something you want help but anyway, there's something called golden hour where people like to take pictures like it there's a time in the end of the day where the sun becomes a very very golden color. Instead of being white and hot, it becomes a golden color and everything outside takes on this kind of golden color that is the end of acid
but you can pre acid as Anna's correctly said all the way up to Muslim if you didn't have a choice or you got stuck somewhere. You can still pray up tomorrow but the proper time that acid ends is when the sun becomes golden. When the sun becomes golden in color,
Now, which one you are mentioning, what was the Salah you mentioned was the fourth one. Margaret and when is that?
When the sunsets so what does it mean the sunsets the sun's going down, down. Now half of it is gone. Three quarters of it has gone when the last
little part of the Sun has disappeared.
What color's the sky?
Now we're gonna see if you're observant. The sun has just said just a second ago. What color is the sky?
Okay, good. At least you didn't say dark. It's not dark. It's it's kind of orangey ready color, but it's not the sky is not dark. It's not dark at Muslim time.
I mean, okay in the winter in the UK it's dark even at Astor time, but it's not really dark at mother it's not properly dark at Mother of time. The sun only just set so there's still light. There's still light in the sky. The sky hasn't gone dark. So you shouldn't be praying mockolate when it's dark outside, like if you look outside now it's dark outside right? where we are. It's dark outside. Look outside. It's dark.
That's not Margaret.
Margaret time isn't completely dark outside.
When does Maghrib and
Isha time and how do I know extra time?
Okay, so what disappears from the sky? Then if it's dark? What disappears from the sky? What did you see the sky wasn't magnetic.
You said it was ready. Orange, what disappears then from the sky. The red color from the sky. When the red color. When you know when the sun set, you still see a little bit of red color where the sun just set in the sky. You can see a little bit of red color. When the sun is set, that red color starts to disappear. And when the red color has gone from the sky completely. It's a Showtime.
Okay, now here's the most difficult question of all. When does Asia and
apart from bedtime?
Okay, that's good. You go wrong. You can give me that one. midnight. All right. That's a good idea. You're writing away and wrong in a way?
No, not when the moon comes out. Good try though the moon can come out in the day sometimes. Yeah, if the moon right sometimes can come out in the day.
No, that's when he has thoughts when it just gets dark. When does it end?
No, no, no, not when you can see the stars.
No, you're right when said midnight. One half of the night has passed. But how do we measure half of the night? I know we don't measure it when the clock goes 12 o'clock. Beep beep how do we measure half of the night? When does the night really start?
When did when did when did it start to get dark?
marker of time. And when does the night end?
Voyager time, so we go halfway between mothership and fragile. That's midnight islamically it's not 12 o'clock at night is halfway between mothership and Virgil. So let's just have a look at the time now is that given give you guys a lot of ask question. Margaret here. Let's just make it simple as half past three, and fetcher. Let's keep it simple. Six o'clock. Half past three, four Margaret,
and six o'clock.
Make it easy, make even easier for you. Quarter to form corppass six, there you go. That's even easier.
Quarter to four. That's
and quarter past six.
Okay, so the quarter of an hour. They meet in the middle. Okay.
So then you've got what from four o'clock to six o'clock? Four o'clock to six o'clock. So from four o'clock to 12 o'clock. How many hours?
I think we need to do our number once again.
10 Okay, so, yeah, all right. Okay. Eight, and then how many hours?
Six. Makes 14 halfways seven. So what time does that make? 11 o'clock, right?
Yes, this makes it at the moment in the UK makes it if I'm not mistaken, makes it 11 o'clock.
Can you pray Asia after that?
Yeah, the same like us are the same, like the other press. If you do run out of time, you can pray all the way into fetcher. And even if you forgot about it, you can pray it
as soon as you remember.
But if you do ever forget about a prayer, you have to pray it again, you have to pray the first prayer first and the second prayer. Second. Don't go pray in the second prayer and then don't do it backwards. Like for example, if I got to Margaret and I forgot about us our first prayer asset and then Primavera, don't pray, mother and then pray
as to what I mean. Okay, that's good. That's it, I almost lost myself.
Those are the times for the prayer.
We've got prayer timetables. So that makes it easy for you. You can check on phones you can check on the internet is so easy to check the prayer times now. And they tell you what time that you need to pray. And those times are rough. They're not perfect, but they're, they're a rough guide to the time for the prayer. We try to check it from time to time, make sure that the times are roughly correct. Okay, because there are different ways of working out those times. And sometimes, there's one way that's better than another way depending on where you live. That's why if you have on your phone, the prayer times, you have to choose how to work out the time. which way you want to use which
method and if you choose the wrong one, it gives you the wrong prayer time for where you are. That makes sense. Okay, we found the time for the prayer.
We've got older.
What's the next thing?
We clean ourselves? Because obviously to get water, we had to be cleaning ourselves and clean in our clothes. What's the next thing in order? Do you think out of those conditions?
What do you think?
I think intention probably comes.
In a way Yeah, you're not wrong. You're not wrong. intention is something you need from the beginning. Because even to make will do you need an intention.
We're gonna leave intention just until before we pray.
Yes, I know, before that you're meant to be a Muslim. I'm definitely sure that you have to be a Muslim.
But that's great. That's just one of the conditions is right. That is one of the conditions. Yes.
Yeah, I think that's the next one to talk about. Your prayer area has to be clean. Okay, so here I am, out in a farmer's field.
Okay, I'm out in a farmer's field.
And it's very muddy.
And there are animals in the field as well. And there's a lot of you know, the animals leave animal droppings and things like that. Can I pray that?
Who thinks Yes.
Who thinks no?
Why do you think no? Why do you think yes? Why do you think no?
So you worried about the animals? Are you worried about the mud on the field?
So the mud on the field is clean? We all agreed that mud is islamically is clean? Okay? What's the evidence that mud is clean?
We gave it Yes. Last week.
You use it to make tambem. Very good. You use it for tm. And if you use it for tm, it must be if you use it to clean yourself instead of whoodle then it must be clean. Okay, that's fine. Now I'm not saying you should go pray in the mud. I'm not saying you should go pray in the mud. But if you did pray in the mud. That's clean. That's not somewhere. And there's an evidence the Prophet sighs and he said jewelry like kneel out mestu then what a hurrah. The Earth has been made for me as a place to pray and a place to purify myself. Coming coming.
So what your concern was, you guys in the back? Your concern was the animals that the animals might have left their droppings or their waste
on the floor.
Okay, so we've now got a we've now understood the principle that animals that are halaal to eat, their droppings are not unclean.
I don't know that I have to make that another word. Make that another way. Say that another way. animals that are halaal to eat what animals are allowed to eat.
Not so much the animal in general the kind of animal what kinds of animals or halaal to eat.
I want the Animals Names.
Yeah, sheep. Okay, then. cows, goats?
Yeah. horses. Horses are actually horses. Yes. Even though we don't eat them, but they are the, the, the meat is not hot.
So generally we say sheep
and the kinds of things like sheep, like goats, and cows and kinds of things like cows, like cows, and, you know, various other things like, yeah, Buffalo and whatever. And camels, okay? Those animals there, they're,
when they go in a field or whatever, you don't need to worry about it being clean. You don't have to worry about it being clean. Because the animals that you can eat.
But where are you not allowed to pray is a tough question. Which animals place are you not allowed to pray and out of the ones we've mentioned? So we said they're clean, they're all clean. They're all clean. The sheep, the goats, the cows, the camels, it's clean.
Even the droppings if worst case scenario, I mean, you don't want to pray there. But if you did, it's clean. It's clean. But the question is, which one of them did the Prophet sighs stop you from praying in
camel pens. You're not allowed to bring a camel pen.
Not because it's unclean. It's nothing to do with cleanliness or uncleanliness. But that's something where the prophet SAW isolation profit prevented people from praying.
So you have to make sure your prayer place is clean. Do you have to have a hammer?
Or a carpet?
We answered this question already. Yes, no.
It's okay to have a prayer mat. If you want to have a prayer mat have a prayer mat. No problem. carpet is fine.
But this idea that you have to have a primer. Now, that's not from Islam, that you have to have a prayer mat and people put out their prayer. And I can't pray here because people walked on it. Yeah. Sorry. You can pray there as much as you want people walked on it, or they didn't walk on it.
And that, that's because of a very important reason. To say something is unclean. What do you have to have?
To see something's unclean? What do you have to have?
If you guys want to come a little bit more in the middle that I don't have to
strain my neck? Yep.
you have to have proof. Someone says, look, but these people have walked on this place here. These people have been on it with their shoes, okay. And
there is no reason why that should be unclean. But they might have walked somewhere on cleaning, they might have walked on it. And they might have made a mark on it. And they might be like that. There is no might be maybe could be should be would be. Yeah, there's none of this stuff. Either. You've got to prove that it's unclean. Or either you can pray that. That's how it is.
That's how it is. Either you have a proof. Or either you can pray. Now I'm not saying you go and decide to pray on a dirty street corner. No, you want to pray in a place which is as clean as possible. But at the end of the day, if you don't find anywhere else to pray, except the side of the road Bismillah that you go.
Alright, what's the next thing we're talking about?
I think we're talking about clothing. Yeah, we've got to talk about clothing. So
this is where we talk about something really important. And I want you to give me as much attention as you can here. We're going to talk about something in Islam, which is called the hour
and the hour is basically the parts of your body that you have to keep covered. Okay? Now, obviously, when you're walking about as an ordinary in your life, every day, there are obviously parts of your body that you have to keep covered in Islam, right.
And that's very important because this religion is a religion about what does Islam give you gives you honor, right? It gives you respect,
makes you a person who is clean and the person who's good. So in Islam, there are parts of our body we have to cover all the time. And then there are parts of our
Buddy we have to cover in the prayer, especially in the prayer. Okay, so for a boy, first of all, what are the pot? What does that where, from where to? Where does the boy have to keep covered all the time? inside of the plan outside of the prayer from which place to which place?
Not from the ankle, no, you can never walk three quarter length trousers, okay? From your knee, okay, up until we're
not open to your belly button. So from your belly button to your knee, you a boy has to keep that covered all the time. And when we say covered, do we just mean covered?
No, it has to be with something loose. That doesn't show anything that is underneath. So for a boy, you have to be covered from your bellybutton
to your knee all the time. But in the prayer, there's even more that you have to be covered. What do you have to be covered in your prayer?
I want the boys to answer no to the girls got the answer.
Okay, so still your knee? The knee is still the bottom part. What's the upper part? You said? chest? Okay, nearly go a little bit higher.
You don't have to go yet?
No, no, here here. Shoulder to shoulder good. From your shoulder. To knee.
At least one shoulder to the knee has to be covered. Okay. That's for the boy in the prayer. So. So for boy in the prayer? Are you allowed to pray? only wearing for example. Your shorts, three quarter length shorts? No, because you wouldn't be covered, your shoulder wouldn't be covered. You might be able to go swimming like that. Because you're still covered from your belly button to your knee. Right? You're still covered from your belly button to your knee. But you wouldn't be able to cover shorts, you'd have to put, you'd have to put something like a T shirt or something to cover your to cover your shoulder at least one shoulder. Okay. What did we Why is that? Okay? Where do people
usually go wrong? I mean, most people I kid people cover from the bellybutton to the knee? Where do most people often go wrong? Tell me what do you think is the part of the body for the boys that most of the time get shown in the prayer that shouldn't be shown in the prayer.
And I'm surprised if you get it right.
Your back the the lower part of your back. And this is the biggest problem the boys have when they're praying. Because they were short t shirt. And what happens when they bend like that the T shirt comes up and their back shows. I'm not even talking about the ones who don't have their trousers properly. That's different. I'm talking about the ones who their back shows. And this is a very big problem in the prayer. Because we said for the boy in the prayer it has to cover from the shoulder to the knee. So that includes your back. So what should you do then? What do you have to be careful that you do?
What do you think? Why?
So yeah, so you can wear like a long wear something long to cover it. But it doesn't have to be any style. Like it doesn't have to be a thobe or it doesn't have to be a
like, like the Arab style of clothing. Like for example, the Moroccan style of clothing or Sudan's style of clothing or Emirati style or sorority style. It doesn't have to be anything like that. But it has to cover you loosely.
Yeah, so that as well. When you make Roku and you make sujood in your prayer, it doesn't be it's not so tight that it shows the body that it's supposed to be covering, right. So you shouldn't be praying wearing tight trousers, or praying wearing a very, very tight t shirt that it comes up your back. Instead if you're going to wear a T shirt, wear one that is loose, or tie something else around your waist if you have to. If you don't have anything, at least take your jacket or your jumper and tie it around your waist so that when you make the request it doesn't, it doesn't show okay. For the girls it's a bit more complicated.
Because for the girls, I'm going to explain the girls because it's a little bit more complicated because for the girls there are three
Our not just to for the boys that was just in the prayer and out of the prayer, right? For the boys, we said in the prayer and out of the prayer. But for the girls, there are some different situations. So there is in the prayer, that's fine. Out of the prayer, there is the situation where the girl she is outside. And there are people there who could see her who are not from her close relatives. Yeah, like not her brother, not her dad, not her husband, if she has a husband.
there are people who are like, for example, where we're sitting now.
For the girls who are sitting now
the girls are wearing hijab, right?
Because there are boys here who are not
from your close relatives, right? Does that make sense?
And then there are other times when the girl is by herself. And she's, let's say, for example, with her brother, or she's with her mom, or she's with her sister, or she's with another lady. And there's no other man can see her.
So there's different situations for the girl. Right? So let's start with the simple one. The girl she is
in the prayer. Let's start with the prayer. That's the simple one, right? What does a girl have to wear? To pray? What does she have to cover?
We have to ask the girls, okay, go on Robbie.
From a head to her toes, or from a head two feet. With one exception. What can she show
her face and her hands, the hands the scholars different about but Sharla the correct opinion, she can show her hands her face and enhance.
So she has to cover everything except for her face and her hands. So when she's doing this, again, it has to be loose so that it doesn't show what it's trying to cover. Right? So there is no good praying in
trousers or something like that, that are that show the shape of the legs or something like that, because you have to have that whole pot covered, right? So you have to be covered from the top of your head all the way down to the bottom of your feet, including your feet. The feet, the scholars differ about as well. But I believe the correct opinion, the feet have to be covered
all the way down to the bottom of the feet. Except for the face. And the hands.
Okay, is there any difference then?
For what a girl has to wear in front of other men?
I'm not talking about relative close relatives.
Okay, who thinks there's a difference? So who thinks exactly the same as the Salah?
Well, if you think there's a difference, raise your hand.
If you think it's exactly the same as the prayer, raise your hand.
Okay, both of you could be right. None of you are wrong. What do you think the difference is?
covering the face and hands. So covering the face and hands is not something that everybody that everybody does. But some of the scholars they said that the face and hands have to be covered, as well. Obviously, we're talking about the older the older ladies now that the face and hands have to be covered as well as so let me make it more clear. Some ladies don't cover their face and hands. But the ones who cover their face when they pray. What do they do?
They uncover their face to pray. Yeah, so that's the key point here is not whether she covers her face and hands or not because that's some people do and some people don't. I believe it's the correct thing to do. I believe that alasia has to cover her face and hands outside.
But when she prays she she uncovers her. She uncovers a face. What about when she's with other girls? Or she's with the close male relatives like her brother and her dad and her mom's brother and her dad's brother.
And if she has children, her sons
or her sisters sons or her brothers sons.
What does she have to cover or not cover in front of them?
Okay. You mean she doesn't have to cover her hair? Right? Yeah, that's right. She doesn't have to cover hair. But can we be like really exact? What does she have to cover? Or does she have to cover?
Okay, so she has to cover herself
to a reasonable standard. I like that. That's a good that's a good answer. What would be a reasonable standard? Like what would be how would you know what the scholar sometimes says where you would normally wear jewelry. So for example, a lady would normally wear jewelry on her. Her neck so she can show her neck. She would normally wear jewelry on her wrist so she can show her wrists and her The, the, you know, the front part of her arms. She might wear jewelry on her ankle, she could show the bottom of her ankles and her feet. Yeah. And she can show her hair. This is in front of other ladies.
But she can't
do whatever she wants to she has to she has to be covered reasonably. She has to be covered reasonably. And he saw she can show her neck. She can show her hair. She can show her arms. She can show the legs below the below the knee. Yeah. What must she never ever ever uncovered? Then we set from? This is from the naval to the knee or from the chest to the knee. From the chest to the knee. That must never be that must never be uncovered. Okay? Does that make sense? So we've learned what you have to wear for your press. Okay, so again, what would you say for the girls is the were some of the problems for the girls when they pray?
What do you think?
Hare Hare definitely. What happens?
The heck of a job falls off. But what must you be also careful of when you pray that you don't do too much? Too much of
but what might you not do too much? Too much fiddling? Yeah. Like too much of like, you know, fixing everything during your prayer moving around too much. But yes, you must make sure your hair is properly is properly covered. What else do you think? Do you think maybe for the girls also, like not having loose clothes because sometimes if the girls are maybe just in the house, and they're with their brothers and their moms and dads, they're just wearing their regular clothes and there might not be very loose clothes. So what might be a good idea? What do you sometimes tell the girls to keep in the house?
praying clothes Yeah. So like something which is like a loose a buyer like that. And sometimes you get them with the hijab as well. So you just kind of put them on and wrap the hijab around and then you can pray like that. Yeah, like praying clothes, they're nice to have what are we recommend if especially if for the the younger girls, where maybe they're not in the ibuyer all the time. So yeah, for sure if you know keep yourself a set of praying clothes that you have. So when the time for prayer comes you can put something loose on and for the boys I would recommend the same that you have some clothes to pray in. Like for example, these baggy clothes like the thobe or the can do or
are like we call it in Dubai. This kind of like baggy clothing. Yeah, definitely like if you usually wear trousers or usually wear you know t shirts or jumpers or something like that, then for sure, you know, keep something that you can pray in so you don't have the problem of being not being covered properly in your prayer. Did anyone have any questions about being covered properly in the prayer?
No men must have their thobe above the ankles. men must always even the boys you must never ever have your trousers or your clothing dropping below your ankles. The only thing that should be on your ankles is your socks. And your shoes. There shouldn't be anything for the boys for the girls how far you allowed to go below your ankles
up to the length of an arm forum first part of your front of your arm yet no further than that. So you know sometimes the girls have long dresses that
like a trail. Yeah, you're not you're only allowed to have
that much. Okay, so the boys you're not allowed to have anything below your ankles. So what all other problems the boys have is short shorts. This is another problem. We do not want to see boys in short shorts ever. We never ever ever want to see boys in shorts shorts and we have sometimes boys come to
MST in short shorts.
And for me short shorts is anything that when you bend your leg, your knee comes on covered. Those are short shorts to me. I'm not talking about short short shorts, like these miskeen people, they were, I'm talking about shorts that when you bend your knees and when you make sujood your knees become uncovered. You shouldn't be praying in those shorts and you shouldn't be wearing them. Really? You need to have shorts that go way past your knees. Go plenty pasture knees. Okay. Does that make sense for the boys? Okay, we've got one more topic I think to talk about or to and we're going to try and finish it today so just 510 more minutes facing the Qibla
What does it mean to face the Qibla
To mark or not Jerusalem?
Definitely marker. A kid. Yeah, that's right mica the Muslims used to face bait and muck this Jerusalem then Eliza revealed Karnataka Luba sama felon William nikka fibrillated total da ha we will turn you to a Qibla that will make you happy and farewell you wish you can shout out misty Hara making make your face point towards the cabinet. The cabinet in Makkah, okay. If I'm in front of the cabinet, that's very easy. How do I point my face to the caliber? If I'm in front of the cab?
You thought too complicated? Yes.
You can see the Kaaba and you can pray any direction where the Kaaba is in front of you. That's why in Makkah which do what's what shaped the people make when they pray. When you look at the prayer from the top, like on a drone, and you look down at the people praying what shape did they make?
circle because they all facing the Kaaba. So they make a circle around the Kaaba like that.
That's fine. If you can see the cat where Can't you pray on the Kaaba? Can you pray inside the cab?
Yes, you can. The cab is a Masjid. And if you if someone is nice enough to let you go inside, you can go inside. And you can pray inside the cab. No problem.
Even you know that little wall with the little half circle. That's also inside the cabinet. If you go inside, you can also go inside the cabinet.
On top of the cabinet, you can't pray. You can't stand on top. So nobody's allowed to give someone a lift up here. A pre on top of the cab? No, you have to. But you can play anywhere else facing the cab. Okay, that's fine if I'm in luck. But as soon as I go a bit far away, how would I know? How to face the Tabler?
Use your iPhone. What if I only have Android that day?
Okay, what do I do on my iPhone? What what app do I use them?
Not the cable at the compass he has to use a compass. So in this case, all we do we have to face exactly the caliber like that. We have to do our best. Yeah, but you're not going to face the exact caliber like that there's no way that you are going to face in more situations that you're going to be able to face that caliber because if you even move like a tiny tiny bit one way or the other, you're going to miss it because it's very very far away. But you have to face the direction of the cabinet as best as you can. The best way that you can.
Okay, now this is where I'm going to talk about I'm going to talk about the UK specifically the UK. Okay. What direction on the compass? compass got 360 degrees. What direction
in the UK don't follow this if you're not in the UK. If you're in the UK, what direction on the compass is MCC? Tell me in degrees
so 360 degrees so you've got what bit any number between one and 360 you've got to choose from
No one is in is north. One will get you somewhere called
not 180. That's jus South that is going to get you somewhere else.
It's East Okay very good. It is east.
East is 90 degrees but what number is it what what number is it 100 and
not 180 are very close.
Yeah, 180 or 121, between 119 and 120. So if you have a compass, what are you looking for?
Where is 118 or 120 on the compass weighs 120 on a compass.
North is zero,
South is 180. East is 90, West is 270.
So where is it?
It's between South and East, but closer to East, right? between South and East but slightly closer towards east. So if you know where is north, how do you find the Tabler?
All right now I've got a test for you guys. I've got a test for you guys. But I can't I'm not going to turn the camera because we don't take pictures of the kids in the class. And we don't generally put the kids pictures up but I'm going to ask the kids to do something now. This is obviously the direction of my car right behind me. Yeah, because with I'm sitting opposite to the pebble and you guys are facing the table.
Stand up and face north.
face. It's a way different.
You think you got to Ayesha?
Okay, Anna says this way. Let's Let's test it out. Let me test it out for I'm going to test out as a theory one second. One second. I think you guys can see me from here. So where were you seeing this way? So if this is north, this is east and this is the Qibla So no, you're out.
we're doing Kibler Qibla. Finding classes. Who else thinks they know? I think you have it. Okay. Which way?
You think this way? Okay. Watch me. East. Qibla. Wrong.
No, that's the Qibla that's not north.
Okay, work backwards. Watch me work backwards. Okay. Yusef says his nor you know, any. Look, watch. watch. watch. watch. watch. This is the Qibla. Okay. All right. To go back to East. I'm going to go here.
Okay, so this is east. Okay, then a quarter turn.
North East Qibla.
See if I'm right, someone put the compass on. Who's got four? I've got one. Let me see.
North is See, look at that. On the dot. Perfect. That way.
So if you know where north is, this is what I want to show you learn this where you are. If you know where north is. How do you find the table? Right? You stand to face north. This is this is the UK please don't copy me if you're in Dubai. Okay. This is north. Okay. What do you do? Turn a quarter turn.
When you turn a quarter turn clockwise, which way will you be facing east right. So now I'm facing east. Just turn a little bit more. And that's it, you've got the Qibla. So a quarter turn from north, a quarter turn clockwise and a little bit more. And that's the Qibla for you. Because a lot of times you will not know people won't know the Qibla but a lot of people do know where north is like even if you stop and ask someone do you know which way is north? A lot of times people will know which way is north? Maybe they don't know.
The Tabler what other way could you use
okay compass phone iPhone Android tablet computer anything like that want something different?
How can you use your eyesight? What are you going to look for that little sign in the sky? This is Mako this way
Look at the clouds
all the clouds are over mica
What do you think Rihanna?
Very good. You can do it from the stars 100% I don't know how to do it from the stars but you can definitely find north from the stars. And honestly it's it's winter these these dark nights. If you're able one of you guys research for me, okay, go do some homework. Find out for me. How do you find north from the States and North Star? There's a North Star but it's it's a little bit how do you actually find it in the sky? Once you know North then for UK what do you do a quarter turn clockwise and a little bit
And that's the problem. Okay. Very good. So that's using the stars, what else could you use?
The sun, the sun's not very reliable, but roughly, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. So it's not perfect. It's not going to give you because we said the sun doesn't go exactly from the east to the west. It's not like dead on East to dead on West, it changes a little bit, but roughly, the sun will give you a good idea. So if it's the afternoon, this is a big test now that I'm testing you guys, it's the afternoon.
Okay, it's the afternoon.
Which way are the shadows pointing?
Late afternoon. Which way are the shadows pointing?
It depends on where you're standing.
It depends on whether you have your eyes open or closed.
The shadows the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. So the shadows are pointing east.
East in the late afternoon the shadows are pointing east. So more or less the shadows are roughly pointing towards the Qibla for Newcastle anyway, not far from it. In the in the afternoon, in the morning, the shadows are pointing
the other way. So the opposite direction to the shadows. So you could use that you can also use a map. Yeah, if you have a map in fact, I much prefer to find a Qibla from a map because the map is dead accurate shows you that you showed the map shows you where north is and it shows you the road that you're on right now. And you see all this road outside my house. This road goes exactly north. So that clip is like that. But none of those are the most accurate way. Not the compass.
Not the map.
Not the internet.
stars. not asking someone who's lived there for a long long time. Not the message even although using a message is very true. That's another way of finding the table if you if you know where the message is. And you know where your houses find the people. I like that. There's a way that is absolutely 100% perfect to find the Qibla but there's a problem. It only happens
twice a year.
Yes, my kids you have done it before. Come on.
Yes, my kids come on this.
Who knows? Gone Wild. What do you think?
No, no, no sticks. No sticks in the middle.
What do you think?
Not the moon No.
There are two dates in a year.
Or actually, if you want to be really specific about it, there are actually
really four dates in a year but two dates in a year
in which the sun is directly on top of the cap
clee above the cab
and these are down to the exact minute
May the 28th
at 18 minutes past nine
Universal Time any GMT
on July the 15th at 927
and in that time it's British summertime So it's minus an hour.
So at that exact time The sun is exactly above the cap.
So how would you find the Qibla at that exact moment
face the sun, if you face the sun at that exact minute you're facing exactly the direction of Makkah or use the shadow again, because the shadow is going to point point you exactly the right direction.
And that is the most authentic way of finding the Qibla without using
lasers and satellites and all sort of stuff. The more the easiest way to find the parabola is that there are two more dates but these dates are the sun is exactly opposite to mcca so you have to face away from the Sun November the 28th at nine minutes past nine at night and January the 13th at 29 minutes past nine at night and that is the that GMT time so obviously those times are good for the times when
any half the world doesn't. It's daytime and the other half it's nighttime, right? So there's some places where the the times in May and July don't work the times in May and July. They don't work because it's too at that time it's dark where you are so you can use the ones in November and January.
Does that make sense or not at all?
Does everyone understand that how it works? Those two times the sun is exactly on top of the cafe maka.
Exactly. So at that exact time you can face the sun and you will be facing the cabinet perfectly.
And it's a good time it's good to check the direction of the Qibla that you're praying at home. You set an alarm, but you can also if if that time is no good for you because it's nighttime where you are then you have to use the other times which is in November and January but for those you have to face away from you have to face the opposite direction to the sun. You face the sun and turn exactly around the other way.
Did I just confuse everybody does that make sense?
It makes sense. We
have to wait quite a while now we have to wait until me but if we try and room if you try and remind me Sharla fertiliser makes it easy for us in May we will try to get the kids together to check the table a direction
now January in November is nighttime in the UK you can't you can't see May and July in the UK you can see it
but some countries were at when the UK is daytime it's nighttime there they can see it in November and January.
Last thing we have to talk about is what what's the last thing left?
I we spoken about me and the first class but I just want to just emphasize it and just check with you guys. you've understood it. So Nia is not something you see out loud. It's not something you see in your heart. What is it?
You know what you're doing? So if I said to you use
what are you going to do right now? Say I'm gonna pray for her prayer that you need. You know what you're doing? You're not just standing there. Someone says Wow, you prayed for it. So out vote I didn't know I was praying God was it
was the really
some of you I don't know, standing up to pray all kinds of things at the wrong times. And I think sometimes you just get like sometimes someone prayed and then they said, Wow, it's late. I didn't realize Asia already Asia. It's fragile. What do you mean Asia? stretcher. So Nia is you have to understand what you're doing. Does that make sense? Yeah, so it makes sense. You hear? Okay.
What we got left and we covered all the points.
Remind me You have to be a Muslim. Have to be saying you have to be old enough to know right from wrong.
You have to have the intention. Face to Tabler. Cover your self with proper clothing. Your prayer Place your clothes and your body have to be clean purification
The time for the prayer.
Unless a physical law does, we're done. All of those things happen before you actually pray. So what you think we're going to do next week?
What do you think?
After you pray?
So we're gonna first we'll do before you pray. And then we're going to say Allah man to Santa Monica, Santa bhakti. And generally when it comes to panela, or how to pray,
what do you think? Which one?
What do you think? How to Pray, right? That's just should that come next? How to pray?
Yeah, how to pray. That's what we're going to do next, the prayer itself. And we're going to start by just talking about the actions in the prayer. Then after that, we're going to talk about how many prayer which prayers have got which number of rock art in them and things like that. And how to pray when you come late and how to pray in JAMA and how to pray as all these things. But to start with, we're just going to talk about the actions of the prayer. What do you actually do in your prayer? We're going to go into as much detail as we possibly can.
anyone got any questions?
How do you know?
Yeah, use the stars. Yeah, you can use the stars
Yeah, so that's a very good question. What do you do if you can't find out the pebble at all? No stars no sun? no moon? No iPhone? No Android? no internet connection? Nobody is there? What do you do
pray later. No. What do you do?
no sun. No moon it's grainy it's cloudy it's pouring down you can't see even two feet in front of you don't know where you are
that's a good one license is actually a good good guess. But I'm saying there's nothing and you got have nothing there is no shadow. Otherwise you're right. You should
just pray anyway. Left right up the law was the principal. Remember this is it's important fact taco laha must start to do the best that you can.
There will always be something while I remember this is roughly the right direction it's somewhere this way. Do the best you can if you did the best you can how do you know when you got it right enough or wrong? How do you know you got it right enough? Like what's right enough? Like if the if the cable is 120 where we are what's acceptable
100 and like 825 laps
my baby bien Allah Masha p while mulvany be Qibla everything between this and this. So if you got anywhere
within a semicircle within half a circle, your Salah is fine.
And if you did your best, your Salah is fine, even if you got it wrong. But if you found for example, I will show you I mean, I don't know if you can see. Can you tell me Can you see on the camera now? Yeah.
Okay, this is the Kibler for us here. This is the Qibla Okay, this is the coupler. So if I was here, and I did my best Would it be okay?
Yes. If I was here, and I did my best Would it be okay. Yeah. What about if I was here? No. Yeah, anywhere between here and here, anywhere between the East and the West and your right hand side and your left hand side. If you did your best, but does that mean you shouldn't care you should just come in and pray. I just come in and pray this way. Come in and pray this way. No, you have to do your best. But when you've done your best, anywhere between the East and the West, anywhere between this side and this side is the table for you.
If you did your best and you had no other way of fighting
Finding out. If the prayer time is still there, you can do it again if the prayer time is gone.
Does that make sense? Okay. All right. Well, there you have a question
from from a
Is it sinful if a lady doesn't wear a niqab and she shows her face and hands in public. That's something that the scholars in Islam they disagreed about. Some of them said it's sinful. And some of them said that it isn't sinful. So this is something that I wouldn't personally be harsh on someone. I wouldn't come to them and say that you're doing a very bad thing and you're doing an evil thing. But my advice to them is that they should Well, that would be my advice to them. But ultimately, at the end of the day, I wouldn't say I wouldn't come down harsh on someone because this is something where the scholars of Islam they didn't agree. Some of them said you have to some of
them said it's recommended. So that's why that would be my advice. Does that make sense? If the scholars disagreed on it, we don't want to be like really horrible to someone on something where they have a proof for it. They have evidence for it, right? Okay.
