hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam, ala Abdullah, who was solely nabina, Muhammad wider early, he will be here, Edge Marine, and my bad. So the purpose of this session is a q&a Following on from the lecture about our purpose in life. And there were some important questions that were raised. I'm going to take two or three questions that I was asked, and I'm going to answer those questions, Inshallah, to Allah. And then I'll open it up to other people. So the first question that I remember a brother came and asked me is, with regard to the teachings of these alphabets, LGP T, and all the other letters that go with it in school? How can we, as parents manage this? And how can

00:00:51--> 00:01:00

we sort of deal with the fact that even in Islamic schools, it may be mandatory by law for a certain amount of teaching to happen.

00:01:01--> 00:01:53

So there's no doubt that Islam came to eliminate, and mooncup to eliminate everything which is evil, and to eliminate everything, which is hated by Allah. But there are situations in which this cannot be eliminated completely. So what is obligatory in this situation is to reduce the evil as much as possible, and in the mooncup, that cannot be completely removed. So there are some people can completely remove it, and they can take the kids out of the lesson, they can homeschool their kids, they can go to any some people, they have a way to completely remove this evil. There are other people they do not all they can do is talk a little elbow ankle, take a small as possible. Now, if

00:01:53--> 00:02:18

someone is asking how to cope with this, so for example, in Islamic school says, Look, we know this is something hated to Allah. However, this is something that by law we have to teach. So we teach the minimum amount possible. What is your advice with regard to the school and with regard to the parents? So with regard to the school, my first advice is everything that is haram that you can remove, remove it,

00:02:19--> 00:03:12

everything that is haram, you cannot remove from a curriculum. My advice is that you decrease it as much as possible. And that perhaps the best way to deal with it is a factual basis rather than an opinion based answer. So for example, let's take a different topic, let's say somebody is talking about Darwin's theory of evolution. So this is mandatory in the sciences, at least in biology, that the children have to be taught Darwinian theory of evolution. But there are two ways I can teach this. I can teach it in a way that is factual or opinionated, factual, meaning, Charles Darwin was a man, Charles Darwin lived in this time, Charles Darwin had a theory, this was Charles Darwin's

00:03:12--> 00:03:12

theory.

00:03:14--> 00:03:14

Course.

00:03:16--> 00:03:29

I'm not giving you any opinion. I'm not telling you, this is the hack. And in fact, as an Islamic school, you can probably say, we totally disagree with this theory from beginning to end. And this theory is baffling because Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

told us so in the Quran.

00:03:33--> 00:03:46

But the point is, when I teach it like that, this is a theory that exists. That's it. So for example, some school said, we have to teach, for example, gay marriage,

00:03:47--> 00:04:01

to a certain extent, Yeah, but you're teaching it as something beloved, something good, or you're just teaching as a factor in this country, this certain thing exists, and it exists in this country. It is something that some people in this country do

00:04:02--> 00:04:16

that that that is very important that we don't teach it in a way that is beloved or in a way that makes people admire it, or in a way that people makes people aspire to it. But if we must teach it, it's a fact any there are people in this country finish

00:04:18--> 00:04:29

from the view of the parent or the school. It is also really important for the children to be firmly grounded in the Islamic responses to the Haram that they experience at school.

00:04:31--> 00:04:47

From this is, for example, that in an age appropriate way, the child is given the Islamic answer to this particular issue. For example, if we're talking about Darwin's theory of evolution, then very simple that Allah azza wa jal created Adam

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

from Torah Halacha, whom interrupt He created him from dust, and that Adam did not evolve from any animal, rather Allah subhanaw taala in nanofiller, Isa in

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

Allah He can fit Adam. The example of Isa in the sight of Allah is like the example of Adam Holika, who mean to Robinson makalah who confer corn, He created him from dust. And then he said being Is that enough for a young child to understand that Darwin's theory is wrong and that this is what Islam says. However, later as the child gets older, that's not enough. In his the child reaches the age of the the near the GCSE exams of the teams, they have questions they want to know about, what about peaking man and this, you know, fossil and that thing, so now they need a job on Mufasa? They need an answer that is detailed, and they need someone to give them the proper Islamic answer to

00:05:38--> 00:06:04

that what you must not do is let this muncom settle into the hearts of a of a child. So in the beginning, it's a simple answer. So in the beginning, a young child by fitrah, every young child knows that marriage is mom and dad. And this is fitori, Yanni, this is Fatah. They don't need anything else. And we know that for example, they learn about the profit slice LM and the profit slice. And Mary Khadija they had,

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

you know, their six, the six children that came from Khadija or the Allahu anha. The prophets lie Selim, that's enough for them in the beginning. But as they get older, they will need a detailed answer to the issues that are presented to them.

00:06:22--> 00:07:01

And the issue of Islam submitting to Allah and Allah knows best, what is right for us and what is good for us. This is very important also. So that's the way I would deal with that, as a school, reduce it as much as possible, try to eliminate it where possible, as a parent do the same and where you cannot, and you reduce it to the minimum address the Islamic issues, because Islam has an answer for everything. But a lot of the times what I see from parents is that parents don't address this issue is just hands on the ears, close the eyes, bury their head in the sand and pretend it doesn't happen. But then the children grow up with these mongkol art in their hearts. And maybe they even

00:07:01--> 00:07:26

grow to love them, or they even grow to approve of them, or they even grow to believe they're not that bad. So it's very important for us that we challenge those issues, and we give them the proper Islamic understanding at an age appropriate way, because the wrong understanding at the wrong age is also harmful. Right? If we give a young child too much information, it's also harmful, like the famous statement,

00:07:27--> 00:08:05

primal caveat, some more severe automall Keep out So Mozilla, that the food of the old is poison for the young. And if you're going to give a young child something that's not appropriate to their age, it's going to confuse them even more. So you give each and appropriate and appropriate answer to the age of the child. And as they get exposed to more stuff in school. You give them more Islamic answers, and you try to give the answers before they observe those things so that they're able to understand and be able to contextualize it in the light of Islam. The second question that I got answered, or the second question I got asked, and I'm going to try to answer Shala is with regard to

00:08:05--> 00:08:37

some people who we mentioned the issue of praying at the graves. And what they say is they say we are not going to the grave to pray to the person in the grief. Rather we are going to the grave to pray to Allah by asking Allah through the deeds of that person or through the status of that person, like the statement of a person Allahumma inni as lop Jahai fallen or Allah I asked you by the honor of this person, or Allah I asked you by the good deeds of this person.

00:08:39--> 00:09:06

There are two important answers to this. The first is that this method of tawassul is tell us Solon bathery, it is an innovation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't do it. The Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu didn't do it. It doesn't come in any of the types of tawassul mentioned in the Quran. And it doesn't come in unto us who mentioned in the Sunnah. And we mentioned the hadith of Aisha Radi Allahu Allah.

00:09:07--> 00:09:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man amla, another laser Allah He am Runa for what? Whoever doesn't action that is not in accordance with our sunnah it will be rejected. So it's very important we understand this idea of asking Allah by the status of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or the honor of the Kaaba, or the deeds of this person, or Yanni, the status of this person, all of this mountains of Allah who behind us all time Allah never give anyone permission to do it. And our understanding is that the way we worship Allah is totally fear. We worship Allah the way the prophets lie, Selim did it. That's it. We don't have any other option.

00:09:47--> 00:09:55

This is the first answer. So if we look at the tawassul that came in the Quran, we find tawassul with Allah's names and attributes Rob burner.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

For example, Rob Bella tuckable Mina Inaka, enter semula

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

Did our Lord accept from us you are the one who hears everything and knows everything. We also find tell us soon by our good deeds Rob bene in and Amanda, Phil, Lana. Our Lord we have believed so forgive us. We find tawassul by mentioning the outcome that we want. Rob Bella Yuki masala my lord so they may perform the prayer. La Allahu Allah Allah who has grown so that they may show gratitude, and so on. But we don't find anywhere in the Quran or Allah I asked you by the honor of Ibrahim, I asked you by the honor of Muhammad. So I said Lemoore I asked you by the status of Gibreel this never came in the Quran nor did it come in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

There are some areas in the Sunnah where people might be confused, like is this cop?

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

They said we used to ask

00:10:52--> 00:11:33

Allah through the prophet Mohammed slice LM and now we are asking him through the uncle of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. This is not a tawassul Vijay, fool and this is not asking Allah by someone status, rather, this is asking them to make dua in front of you. And then you saying I mean, and this is not from the type of tawassul which is prohibited in the first place. And that is why after the Prophet SAW Selim died, if they were making to Allah through His status, why did they not carry on when he died? Did his status end when he died? It didn't. So with is this car when they were asking for rain? If they were asking through the status of the prophets? Why Selim? Why did

00:11:33--> 00:11:53

they stop and change to Al Abbas? Except that the prophets why Selim died, his status didn't die, his deeds didn't die. So why did they stop asking him? Because they were not asking by status in the first place. They were asking him to go and make dua and then they would ask Allah Oh Allah, your messenger made to accept it.

00:11:54--> 00:12:39

And the same thing with that ibis, Al Abbas would make to ask for rain, and the people would ask Allah to accept that dua. The other thing in this question is very important is a lot of people use this as an excuse. And in reality, a person the excuses don't benefit them. Well, oh, karma, I feel, even if the person gives all of their excuses. In reality, a person goes to the grave. We see them making such that we see them grabbing onto the sides of the graves and crying. We see them calling upon the person and they say, I'm not calling upon them. I'm asking Allah. But the reality is that Allah azza wa jal never legislated you to go to that place to ask, law did Allah azza wa jal give

00:12:39--> 00:12:55

you a sunnah from the Prophet sighs him to go to that place. So be careful about people who fool themselves. They don't fool us. But they fool themselves by telling themselves and going there through the status of the wedding, when in reality, they're going there for the wedding himself. So this is very important.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

That was another

00:12:58--> 00:13:03

important question that we were asked. We had a third one who's helped me out with the third one because I forget

00:13:05--> 00:13:20

when did you do in congregation was very good. I remember exactly the question. So this is with regard to the DUA that is made in congregation often at certain days when a person died, the bottom and things like that.

00:13:22--> 00:14:05

And the issue of someone who is upon the Sunnah and they feel compelled to attend because of family ties. So we know it's very important to keep family ties in Islam, Allah azza wa jal set for her I say to interval Latham and Tutsi to fill out the what to cut to our hammock. Do you think that if you turn away that you will cause corruption in the earth or you will cut off from your relatives? However, there is a principle we must believe we must implement it and we must keep it in our mind. And that is laughter It Lima Flocon female CSL Carnac you cannot do something for creation that is disobeying Allah doesn't matter your parents or anyone else like Allah azza wa jal said, we're in

00:14:05--> 00:14:42

Tjahaja Allah and to shake heavy Malley, silica be here and fill out Altair, whom Allah was so hit home if if dunya that roofer if they try to compel you to make a partner with me and what you have no knowledge, do not obey them, but accompany them in this world in the best way. This is the best answer I can give to the person in this situation fill out Altair format, don't obey them. What's our hippo method 20 of our offer, be along with people in the best way. But don't update for my advice is that these gatherings or gatherings that are either built upon check upon making a partner with Allah or if they are free from that they are built upon Buddha going against the Prophet

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

sallallahu alayhi wasallam so I don't believe that anyone should be attending these gatherings at all. If a person is in the house when the gathering takes place, let them move away fella taco man whom had tire hold off you had Ethan ready to sit with them until they take a difference pitch

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

a different path. If a person feels compelled that they are in the room don't take part is one thing I know a lot of people I know how hard it is and I know the brothers say look, I raised my hand and I just asked Allah for forgiveness. So I raise my hands and I ask Allah for something halal, but at the end of the day you're taking part in this thing with them. They don't even see them that you are doing in Carl monka they don't see that you reject it they don't see they're doing anything wrong. So I think what you should do is that you should not take pot but you should make to ask for the dead person and show the family your sincerity towards so for example, the pharmacy Okay, everybody

00:15:39--> 00:15:56

read now? I'm not gonna read. May Allah azza wa jal forgive this person may Allah azza wa jal give him and for those who are elemental Jana May Allah subhanaw taala have shower His mercy upon him. I can't take part in this because I can't disobey Allah to make you happy.

00:15:57--> 00:16:35

And when they finish you make to ask for the dead person you mentioned you show how sincere you comfort the family. You say kind words to them, but don't take part in something that is Marcia Tila mazziotta Rasul. disobeying Allah azza wa jal and disobeying the messenger so isolation and don't feel that people will say and people will think sure sincerity show how your kindness look after the family. Take care of them say nice words to them. Make dua for the dead person but don't take part in something that is disobedience to Allah and disobedience to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, under any circumstances will Allahu Allah and Allah azza wa jal knows best.

00:16:39--> 00:17:22

Closely related, can a Muslim attend a non Muslim relative's funeral? No, I don't believe that they should tend to attend a non Muslim relative's funeral. It's true that if their non Muslim relative has no one to bury them, like the situation that happened with Abu Talib, there was no one to bury him, then he nobody would prepare the body to put it in the grave. So earlier of the Allahu and he asked the Prophet sighs him and the prophets I said give him permission to take that responsibility. So if there is no one to bury the person a nobody is there to to bury them, they will just be left by themselves. And the person can take care of their burial. But not to attend a funeral. Because

00:17:22--> 00:17:56

that funeral, first of all, is the funeral of a non Muslim. Second of all, it's going to be based upon practices from another religion or atheism. And he says the person was not a Muslim. It's not permissible for a person to participate in that. Rather a person can go to the family say words of you know, condolences or what have you. You can say in that Allah who are in either here, Roger on, because that's true no matter what 10 We are all belonging to Allah and we will all go back to him. But it's very important a person doesn't exaggerate in this issue and doesn't get involved in the issues of the nonsense now.

00:17:58--> 00:18:01

Can parents deny marriage due to nationality?

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

This is an important question that we must be a little bit careful about.

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

There's no doubt that the measure in the sight of Allah is a Taqwa.

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

In Kurama COMM And Allah here at Koco

00:18:21--> 00:18:42

the ones who are the most noble in the sight of Allah are the people of a Taqwa. Allah azza wa jal doesn't look at in Allah Hala young vooral era su Alikum. Allah doesn't look at how you look. But Allah looks at Canyon vooral ADA Kulu become more American, but Allah looks at your hearts and Allah looks at your deeds.

00:18:44--> 00:19:26

At the same time, there is one aspect of nationality that could be given consideration when it comes to march. And that is an issue of compatibility. Now I don't believe compatibility is necessarily aligned with nationality. For example, you can have two people from different ethnicities or different nationalities that are compatible. But it is important to make sure that there will be compatibility. In the Hadith of the Prophet sighs Salman the alpha, we see that there were occasionally marital problems between the people of Croatia in Makkah and the answer in Medina. Both of them are from the same ethnicity, the same nationality, broadly speaking, and there were problems

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

between the two of them. And these problems came about because of a lack of compatibility, different expectations different culture. So there is no issue that Islam says you must marry someone of the same ethnicity or nationality, nor is there any reason to prevent it on that basis. But it is important to make sure that the husband and wife are compatible with one another. That means that they understand each other's cultures. They understand the expectations and they are comfortable with what each one of them will expect from the other. If the parent is refusing the marriage be

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

On this issue compatibility, this could be given some consideration. And you could say to them, tell me for example, you go to the wedding. Well, he says you're not marrying this person from this nationality. Okay? What is your reason? If he says, My reason is because they will not understand our culture, our expectations, we will not understand there's, they have some things they expect from their women and you have some things we expect and it's not going to work out. This should be thought about I'm not saying he's right, but it should be given consideration. But if it's just racism, or it's just a matter of nothing but any ethnicity or nationality or race, this has no

00:20:39--> 00:20:48

consideration in the sight of Allah in the UK Rama comb and Allah here at Koco. The most noble in the sight of Allah are the ones with the most Taqwa.

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

At the same time, do I advice or do I advise?

00:20:58--> 00:21:37

Do I give advice that a person should go against their parents in this issue? My honest advice is to be very careful and cautious. Don't rush to go against your parents decision. Yes, they could be wrong. Yes, they can be juggled. And it can be ignorance that but ultimately going against your parents is not easy. And it's not light in the sight of Allah azza wa jal. So just think about the issue. First, consult people of knowledge. Ask people who are senior to ask people who are older than you don't rush to go against your parents, because your parents don't want you to marry from this culture or that culture. But be careful about this walleye. Because even if your parents in

00:21:37--> 00:22:15

this might be wrong, there is no doubt that going against the parents is very, very severe in the sight of Allah and you have to have a very, very good reason for it. So just be careful about the issue of going against your parents like some of the young people, they just quickly want to take the answer and see my parents are wrong. To the girl left the house and she goes to any environment, the Imam becomes wealthier, the Imam gets married. And that's it. She lost the connection with her parents for a long, long time, maybe forever. It's not Lisa behave, it's not something easy and light. Rather, she should take good advice and counsel and think very, very carefully before taking

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

that step.

00:22:21--> 00:23:08

Okay, if a parent finds their children watching something, which is haram, how should they deal with it? So my sincere advice to the parent in this situation is to take things slowly, until try to communicate with your child and to try to explain to them because in reality, as a parent, it's one of the worst things that can happen to you to see your child doing something which is openly haram to see your child doing something which can ruin their Arteaga it hurts you as a parent, and your initial reaction is extremely severe upon them and it should be but at the same time, in reality, your job is to do the means that is going to bring about a change in that child. So you sit down

00:23:08--> 00:23:12

with them and you say what you are doing here is very severe in the sight of Allah azza wa jal

00:23:14--> 00:23:49

and the stuff that you're involved in is absolutely haram and it's not acceptable at all. So now we have to understand why this happened. And we have to remove every single thing that leads to it. Is it your phone? Is it your computer? Is it your friends, whatever it is, we're going to change it and first of all, you need to tell them to repent to Allah before they feel sorry in front of their parents because a lot of kids are like oh I'm really sorry I'm really sorry I'm really sorry I got caught any but they don't feel in their heart any pain in terms of Allah subhanaw taala so this is also very important

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

Can we eat food that has been read upon from a hunter No, I don't believe you can eat it

00:23:58--> 00:24:08

can you forgive? I don't eat birthday cake either. No, I don't believe you can eat birthday cake or Christmas cake or any something which has been prepared for something haram you can't eat it.

00:24:09--> 00:24:34

How can you forgive someone who has done wrong to you? Fairly awful Well, yes foul? Let them forgive an overlook and add to hipbone if you're hola hola. Don't you want Allah to forgive you? So the simplest way is to concentrate on your forgiveness from Allah. If you concentrate on your forgiveness from Allah, and you concentrate on Allah as names and attributes like alpha for

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

alpha

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

TBWA Rahim of Rama if you look at these attributes of Allah and you understand them, and you realize how much you need Allah's forgiveness for you. This will enable you to learn to forgive other people. Because Allah said, Forgive and pardon. Don't you want Allah to forgive you? This idea has a story to it and so

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

Oh, no.

00:25:03--> 00:25:16

It has a story. And the story behind this is the F which happened to Asha Ravi, Allahu Allah. You know that I she was accused of adultery Radi Allahu anha. And Allah declared her to be innocent in the Quran.

00:25:17--> 00:25:42

There were some Muslims who were involved in spreading the rumors about Asha, they were not there were more than 15 Yes, but there were some Muslims who got involved. They took the rumor and they spread it by by without realizing what they were doing or without knowing the severity of what they were doing. Among them also Sahabi who is known as Mr. And he was from the relatives of Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Imam.

00:25:44--> 00:26:26

Abu Bakr used to pay for his upkeep he was a poor man, and Abu Bakr used to pay for him. And subhanAllah Mr fell into spreading the rumor about Aisha imagine that the person who is paying for you, the person who's paying for your upkeep the person who's looking after you, and you betray them with the biggest betrayal that you can imagine. And you spread rumors about their daughter to the extent that she almost was divorced from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because of Abu Bakr, he swore an oath by Allah by Allah are never going to give this man again. And Allah azza wa jal revealed the eye for the afro Alia spell, let them forgive and overlook Don't you want for Allah to

00:26:26--> 00:26:38

forgive you. And after the I came down Abu Bakr he said Wallahi I'm never going to stop giving to him. And he continued to give to him until I knew the time that he passed away Robbie Allah who and how much money

00:26:40--> 00:27:15

so reading the Sierra also is a means to learn how to forgive because when you read things like that, it teaches you the etiquette and the manners of how to forgive is having a baby shower permissible not like that. Like the way they call it a baby shower will lie the Prophet size and said woman to shut behavior calm and for her womanhood. Whoever resembles a pupil is one of them. So we don't take the non Muslims habits we don't take their celebrations we don't take the way they give gifts. We don't do anything the way that they do it. The prophets eyes and say the car they fully are who they want. Nosara be different from the Jews and the Christians. In many a hadith. In

00:27:15--> 00:27:41

many a hadith he told us be different from the Jews and the Christians and he said let it tell the owner said and I'm in Canada Kubla Khan cheaper and cheaper and clearer. And he said you're going to follow the ways of the people who came before you hands on by hand Spanner on by on. So yes, give gifts to a person who's going to have a baby, buy clothes for the baby buy gifts for the baby no problem, but don't copy the way the non Muslims do it. This having baby showers and things like that.

00:27:43--> 00:27:46

I explained about the hottap Hamdulillah.

00:27:51--> 00:28:23

With regard to the meal out of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam this is something that's been answered very well previously. So there are some excellent videos but I will just summarize a few points. First of all, there is no one who loved the Prophet sighs Allah more than the Sahaba they love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than we could ever love him. Wallahi if we gathered the love that everyone on this earth has for the Prophet SAW Salem, it would not reach not even a mood not even a Hance part of what Abu Bakar had for the Prophet sighs.

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

And Abu Bakar never celebrated the prophets license.

00:28:28--> 00:29:03

Nor did Irma. Nor did Earth man. Nor did Alia Ravi Allahu Anhu much mine nor did any of the Sahaba nor did any of the tear between nor did any of the Imams of Islam, Abu Hanifa and Malika Sheffy and Ahmed Rahim Allah Allahu taala. None of them did. In fact, it's so rare and unlikely and so unusual that we don't even know when the prophets lie son was born. Do you know that we don't know when the Prophet Tyson was born. The scholars differ they didn't even agree the month he is born.

00:29:04--> 00:29:41

Most of them said Robbie are outward, but not all of them. They even differed over the month he was born. They agreed the year he was born Amalfi, they agreed that he was born in the Year of the elephant, but they didn't agree upon the month and they didn't agree upon the date. Rather, I will say that me personally, I believe that the date of the 12 of reveal owl is wrong. It's not the day the prophesy son was born. Rather, I think it more likely he was born upon the eighth of robiola, or one, possibly the 10th of Ruby or our or possibly the 12th of Ruby and that those are the three strongest opinions in the issue. So the scholars of Sierra don't even agree when he was born. So how

00:29:41--> 00:29:53

should we celebrate his birthday? They don't even agree upon the date that he was born. That's the next thing. The third thing is who started celebrating his birthday Kewanee was the faulty Miyun

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

the extreme SCIAC they're so extreme that even the sheer of today consider them could fall

00:30:00--> 00:30:28

Danny they are the eonni they are from among the most extreme of the extreme Shia and they celebrated six birthdays. They started it nobody did it before them. These people this is the one who started it six birthdays. The birthday of the Prophet sighs LM the birthday of Fatima Radi Allahu Anhu the birthday of Ali, Ravi Allahu and the birth of Al Hassan and the birthday of Al Hussein Radi Allahu Anhu Ma, and the birthday of their king.

00:30:29--> 00:30:37

And they celebrate they started the six birthdays no body in Islam knew something called the prophets birthday until these people came.

00:30:38--> 00:30:59

No, none of the Imams of Islam they never knew it. For Allah who we should suffice ourself with what the Sahaba suffice themselves we call In Kuntum to hipbone Allah for TVOD see, if you love Allah then follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there are much more detailed answers, inshallah than that, but this is just a small q&a, so small points and shallow.

00:31:00--> 00:31:04

How do you control your child choosing friends at school?

00:31:05--> 00:31:48

First of all, my advice with regard to the children is, the first thing you can do is there are 32 things you can do before they even go to school. One is by teaching them good Islamic morals and manners, they themselves will know a good friend from a bad friend, that's the first thing. The second thing is by encouraging them to have good friends before they go to school. And while they're at school, then insha Allah as they go from stage to stage and year to year, they will continue to have good friends. As for when your child is at school, you can certainly influence them. As a parent, you have a lot of control over your children in the sense that you can, let's say give them

00:31:48--> 00:31:58

a lot of leeway. Or you can put a lot of pressure so my advice is when they have bad friends that are bad for them in their religion, restrict them to the maximum that you can restrict

00:32:00--> 00:32:37

Can I go out late Nope. Can I go to South Nope. Cows not any restrict everything you can when it comes to their good friends this is important don't forget this when it comes to their good friends. Let it go. Can I stay a bit late? No problem. Can I stay over their house? Of course you can. What about if we meet up at the weekend? No problem inshallah. Encourage them with what is good and prevent them with what is bad. And explain to them because so many times parents just say no. And kids are just like look, my parents just say no, they don't want good for me. They don't know what it's like talk to them. explain to them why it is that you want to say no and what the problem might

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

be.

00:32:39--> 00:32:49

I apologize that these answers are very brief, but we've got a llama American got some papers. A person believes it is fine to share pictures of his wife on social media.

00:32:51--> 00:33:29

Using the fatwa of a share Hello Daniel Rahim Allah to Allah, that covering the face is not compulsory. Somehow in this in regard Subhanallah the amount of people I see will lie he following a fatwa they don't understand. But in reality the reason they're following it is because it is in agreement with their Hauer so this person falls under the statement of Allah Allah Ito Manik, Taka Illa, who how have you seen the one who took his goddess his desires? Because this person is not sincere in following what the chef said? Did the chef's give a fatwa of posting your wife's picture around for everyone to look at? No, he didn't write them all out it.

00:33:30--> 00:33:45

Never would the chef say such a thing, Rahim Allah Tada. Rather, the chef spoke about whether it is obligatory for a Muslim woman to cover her face. As for the issue of lowering the gaze, there is no 50 left in it at all.

00:33:46--> 00:34:07

There is no two Muslim scholars who ever differed on the obligation of lowering the case. And that is lowering the gaze whether the woman is not wearing hijab or wearing hijab or wearing niqab or not wearing niqab whatever it is nobody different on the permit on the obligation of lowering the case that came in the text of the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:34:08--> 00:34:14

For this issue Subhan Allah is very, very unfortunate. I will give you one evidence to explain

00:34:15--> 00:34:27

shareholder value from the evidence is he brought that in your club is not obligatory, by the way, I believe it's obligatory but the shareholder himolla data from the evidence is he brought is the Hadith which mentions

00:34:28--> 00:34:47

al Faber for the best or the Oklahoma that a woman came and she was a Mara, as I remember, and this woman that the Prophet size and took his nephews head, or he took the his cousin's head, and he turned it backwards. He took his head and he turned it around.

00:34:49--> 00:34:54

The point is, the chef is using this to show that the woman's face was uncovered.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

The point here is, let's just take what the chef said. On that statement.

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

Now How should you behave when you see that woman whose face is uncovered? The same way as that father behaved turn your head all the way backwards.

00:35:09--> 00:35:28

If I took me no one I'd be beautiful Kitab your textbook will never be above or do you believe in some things in the in the Hadith and you don't believe in others? And if you believe that that is the evidence why the woman's face was uncovered, okay, the woman's face was uncovered. The prophets Isom took alphabets head and turned it around so that he didn't look at it.

00:35:29--> 00:36:07

You can't take part of it and not take the other and you can't take effect why based on your desires acquire this fact we're shopping wala is a disease of the heart. It really is the number of people I've seen it shall have it shipped members opinion on this it you're asking what is their opinion? You don't even know it. Wallah. You don't know Allah, not the evidence, not the delille not the opinion nowhere at all. You look that it matches your house. That's it. It matches my desires. So I go with it. I will. It's not like this. Rather the person who is content for people to look at their wife, no doubt is that they use without a shadow of a doubt. The person who is content for people to

00:36:07--> 00:36:31

look at their wife they have a share of that. A person should fear Allah azza wa jal with regard to their family, whether the sister wears niqab or doesn't wear makeup, as I said, my view is the niqab is compulsory. But even if she doesn't wear the niqab, still, that doesn't neglect the issue of lowering the case. And keeping the people away from her and protecting her honor, her honor, and so on.

00:36:34--> 00:36:36

Which she acts as a star should we listen to?

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

Allah Who's that?

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

Miss Eliza, which

00:36:43--> 00:37:04

is very hard or lie. Because the problem is you mentioned somebody, and tomorrow, and you don't know what that person will say, for Wallahi I do not know anything better to be honest with you than to say that you should follow the people who have passed away. Because the people who are alive, live benefits now, you can't be sure that that person is not going to go into a fix tomorrow.

00:37:06--> 00:37:40

Wallahi I personally don't really advise people for particular speakers for two reasons. The first thing is that Allah has many good speakers. I don't know that. So I say for example, and I you know, I live in like this bedwin world when it comes to social media, I don't look at it. I don't care about the videos that are made. I don't look at Instagram, nothing like that other people do it for I don't don't take anything to do with it. So I don't know when there are good speakers. And it would be unfair for me to say you should only listen to fallen and fallen and fallen. And I there's many good speakers I don't know about.

00:37:41--> 00:38:23

And also, if I mentioned someone with good I don't know what that person will say tomorrow, I can't tell you what I will say tomorrow, let alone them. I can Wallahi at the moment, me myself, I'm working with a madrasa or Maria, with Chateau Manhattan, and will lie from what I have seen of Chicago man's work and what I've worked with him for the last three, four years, I found his lectures to be extremely beneficial. And from among the best of what is available in the English language. So I can't advise you other than that. There are many, many other great speakers and there are many fantastic two art who are doing a great job. And I don't take anything away from them. But

00:38:23--> 00:38:37

I can only only tell you the people that I know personally and the people that I know well. So right now I'm working along with Chef Hawkman has an with an Madras to Maria. And other than that, Danny, I leave the matter to you in sha Allah

00:38:40--> 00:38:54

when a masjid is teaching wrong things to people and they believe it How should we deal with this? So it's very important to deal with issues with Al Hikmah well more Everton Hustler,

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

Audrina realize your

00:38:57--> 00:39:09

call to the way of your Lord. Call to the way of your Lord. You need to call to the way of your Lord been Hekmatyar, more enlightened has with wisdom and with good admonition

00:39:10--> 00:39:23

and argue with them and the way that is best. What does that mean? So first of all, is that we call to Allah subhanaw taala we're not calling to personalities. I'm not saying don't go to his Masjid because he doesn't invite me to speak there.

00:39:25--> 00:39:59

I'm not calling to myself. Call the people to Allah. Call the people to the Quran and to the Sunnah, and to what the companions were upon call to the way of your Lord, the Kitab and the Sunnah. When the edge merrily he set up for how the OMA what the early generations agreed upon. That's what I call to do I get it right. No, sometimes I get it wrong, but that's what I caught. So call the people to Allah to the Quran, the Sunnah, and what the early generations were upon. That's the first thing. Call them with Hickman. What does Heckman mean? It means that you know when to speak up and when to be silent. You

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

Know when to be harsh and when to be soft. You know when to bring a certain angle and when to go from a different angle.

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

And that requires knowledge and practice.

00:40:14--> 00:40:26

When we're able to have that and when you admonished people admonish people in the best way. And he don't be someone who is the only someone who is you just hear curses and bad words from them.

00:40:28--> 00:40:47

And I want you to reflect on what Allah said to Musa and Harun when they went to frown, for Kula Allah Who Cole and Leggett Allah, Allah Who yet has that character, we say to figure out and figure out who is the worst of the people say to him a soft word, perhaps he will remember or perhaps he will fear Allah.

00:40:48--> 00:40:56

If you're around deserves a soft, gentle word, then the people who are better than fill out also deserve a soft and gentle word.

00:40:58--> 00:41:37

And when you have to argue with people, because sometimes the people will not accept it from you will say, No, what I'm teaching is correct, you're wrong. We're just deal homebuilder t here. When you have to argue with them, argue in the best possible way. Don't go down to their level, don't go down to insults and screaming and shouting at people, but discuss with them and give you evidences and explain to them in the best possible way. And be sincere like you're looking at yourself, give sincere advice to people as though you are giving it to yourself. And if you do this in sha Allah Who to either many of those people will change. And I think in our time and I don't mean today, but

00:41:37--> 00:42:03

in recent times Wallahi that from the best examples of this, if you look at some of the advices that Chef chef members, Rahim Allah Allah gave to people, Wallah, you will find it a very, very good example of how to deal with people how to deal with alcohol, if the one who is against you and the one who has fallen into innovations and misguidance. Allah, the chef gave an excellent example for our modern times of how to deal with people like that.

00:42:05--> 00:42:30

Can we give the car money for somebody to build a house? The most important thing is that the car has two aspects to it when we talk about giving it the first is that you must give it to the groups that are mentioned in our soda cartoon for Carla it was my second while I'm eating it when I left it with Ricardo of our immuno feasibility now you have been studied. Allah azza wa jal mentioned these categories, the eight categories of the people who are Jews.

00:42:31--> 00:43:11

For this purpose of this question, we're talking about two in the Masada cultureinfo, Cara, well Misaki, the extremely poor, who have nothing at all, and the ones who have money, but it's not enough for their basic needs. The second thing is, how do you give that sucker to them, you give it in the form that you had it, you give it for example, if it's a car on money, you give it in money, you don't say to them, for example, I will buy you food to our by you clothes, rather you give it into them in money for them to buy Allahumma unless you fear that they will waste that money. That's a different issue. So the we said it has to be a faqeer or miskeen someone who has nothing or

00:43:11--> 00:43:50

someone who has less than the basics that people need. And the second thing is if yours is a copper, gold and silver and money, then you give it in that form. You don't give somebody a you know, a pallet of bricks or something like that. You give them the car and they choose what to do with it. But there might be some exceptions to that and maybe specific cases could be asked about and Allah azza wa jal knows best for more questions and then inshallah we quickly run the brothers and we try to finish a shower. How do you tell Muslims to pray? So there are two aspects of telling Muslims and encouraging Muslims in Islam. The first is called a terror leap. And the second is called a terror

00:43:50--> 00:44:33

Hebrew. So a theory means encouraging them with positive messages. So you're telling them about Jana, you're telling them about the reward for the people who pray the nearness to Allah sort of Fatiha is a conversation between you and Allah and Allah says her that he actually Optima says this is for my servant and my servant will have whatever they asked for showing them how easy it is to pray, facilitating for them, encouraging them and helping them this is all totally encouragement. Then there is how he they scaring them and warning them. So you tell them when Allah azza wa jal spoke about the people of hellfire masala confy sakar Palolem Nikolina mousseline the first thing

00:44:33--> 00:45:00

they said is we didn't use to pray. And the Prophet sighs Olivia said, Well, I have to let the Bane and our Bina homos, Salah, Thurmond, Taka, Taka Kapha the difference between us and them is the prayer and whoever leaves it has disbelieved. So the leaving of the prayer is so serious that a person could leave the religion of Islam completely. And then you encourage them with all the goodness and the rewards of praying and this dual approach inshallah to Allah as well as making it

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

Easy. Like for example, someone says look, I cannot imagine coming to the masjid to pray. Okay, let's just start by you just praying where you are. We make a little gym at home. You just make your will do you just pray your prayer and and we'll build on it. We'll go stages until you come into the gym five times a day but isn't the lighter either. Okay, rites and rituals are what rites and rituals are prescribed for marriage. That's a big question that will be better to deal with as part of a marriage course. But I will recommend a series of books will live from the best of what I have seen written on the topic of marriage is a four book series by Sheikh Mohammed and Jabari is a very,

00:45:38--> 00:46:18

very beautiful series. The chef did a fantastic fantastic job. He used to be my neighbor in Medina wala, he did an amazing job, a fantastic job of going through the evidences as they relate to marriage preparing for marriage, the ceremony of marriage, intimacy, and children and all of that very, very nice. I recommend, I would give this book as a gift to anyone who says they're thinking about getting married, or anyone who's married even yet he will still benefit from it. And he gives them this it's for four books, and is commonly known by the term the marriage series by Sheikh Mohammed elgiva is very, very beneficial.

00:46:21--> 00:46:28

We mentioned that Allah hates and loves certain behaviors, can you elaborate on what Allah hates? And whether this ties in with nonbelievers?

00:46:33--> 00:46:53

Should we not approach a non Muslim as though they were someone who has and who could become Muslim? This is a very, very good question and very important. So let's recap. What we said on the issue of Allah Allah Allah. We mentioned the I Will I started mentioning that I can Atilla como sweat on hustler trophy Ibrahim

00:46:54--> 00:47:09

Ibrahim Oh ALLAH Dena Ma is called with the homie him in Abu Dhabi met I will do what I'm doing in California become whereby there been an Albanian called Ida 12, or whatever that had taught me Nabila who worked on this idea in Surratt.

00:47:10--> 00:47:11

Montana.

00:47:13--> 00:47:27

There has certainly been for you an excellent example in Ibrahim adores with him when they said to their people, we are free from you and what you worship besides Allah, we have disassociate ourselves with denied

00:47:28--> 00:47:33

and there is between us and you emnity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah Allah.

00:47:35--> 00:47:52

Allah says this is an excellent example. At the same time, Allah says lie on her Kamala. Angelina Lemieux Hardy look comfy Dean. Well, I'm your collegial community Eric and terbaru, whom were toxic to La him. In Allahu

00:47:53--> 00:48:42

Allah does not forbid you from those people who have not fought you for your religion, or driven you out of your homes for being righteous towards them and fair towards these two Ayat cannot contradict each other. And they did not come with Yanni they did not come for only a special set of circumstances. So both eyes have to be applied. First of all, we disassociate ourselves from the non Muslims and from what they do, Allah azza wa jal hates disbelief and Allah azza wa jal hates the disbelievers by the text of the Quran. We don't need any This is proven by the text of the Quran in more than one place, that Allah subhanaw taala hates the disbelievers and Allah hates disbelief. And

00:48:42--> 00:48:48

we don't just say that Allah hates disbelief, but doesn't hate the disbeliever. Rather, Allah hates the action and the person

00:48:50--> 00:49:14

without a shadow of a doubt, and Allah hates every evil action, and every person who does it to the extent that they do it. So for example, someone who does some mistake sometimes is not the same in the sight of Allah as the person who disbelieves and the person who disbelieves and is looking for Islam is not the same as the person who hates Islam and tries to pull people away from it. All of them have a status in the sight of Allah.

00:49:16--> 00:49:28

But Allah does not prevent us despite this hatred. Allah does not prevent us from being kind. Nor does Allah prevent us from being just someone might say, How can I be kind to someone that I hate?

00:49:30--> 00:50:00

The answer is that the reason you're being kind to them is from Love of Allah, because Allah commanded you to be kind to them. And so out of love of Allah, you're kind to them and he polite. You give a good impression of Islam. You explain Islam nicely to them, you help them to understand, you're fair to them, you don't cheat them, you don't lie to them, you don't steal from them. And all of these things that Allah commanded you and you do that because Allah told you to do it. So out of your love of Allah

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

Law you treat them kindly, fairly, justly, and you explain Islam to them in a beautiful way. And if they accept Islam, for a while confronted, they become your brothers and their religion.

00:50:13--> 00:50:55

They become your brothers in the religion. As for before that, then they are not your brothers or sisters, but they are people that Allah has commanded you to be fair towards them. And Allah has commanded you to be kind towards them, in the limits of what Allah azza wa jal said in these ayat, at the same time, we're not on the same team. We're not friends, we're not allies, we're not together. And he rather, there is emnity and hatred, because I have to hate what Allah hates. At the same time, Allah has commanded you need to be kind to us. So out of love of Allah, I'm going to be kind to you, and I'm going to be fair to you, as Allah has commanded me to be, and will lie that

00:50:55--> 00:51:33

achieved thing I find about this, to be honest with you is, I find that non Muslims understand this very well. They have excellent well I will put up like many non Muslims have an excellent sense of the fact that, look, we're together, you know, we're allies, we, you know, and they have this excellent sense of being against the Muslims and away from them and so on. And yet Subhanallah we as Muslims, feel like confused, you know, like, who should we be with? Whose team are we on? We shouldn't be confused. But it doesn't stop us from being fair to the non Muslims. It doesn't stop us from giving a nice explanation of Islam. But you can't join us until you're one of us. If they

00:51:33--> 00:51:43

repent. And they in terrible accommo Salah and they perform the prayer while at Osaka and they give this is why no confetti and then you do your Protestant religion.

00:51:44--> 00:52:21

Last one on paper, and then we see if any philosophers from the brothers and you must have and I feel unsettled in the area I live in. I'm unmarried and a single parent and I can't move to a Muslim area as I take care of my sibling. What should I do if I can't make a choice. So there's no doubt that new Muslims undergo a number of unique challenges. And Wallah, he these challenges, they are not easy to bet. But we ask Allah subhanaw taala to raise their rank, and to bless them with the best of this world and the next because of these difficulties and challenges that they face.

00:52:22--> 00:53:05

So it's very important when these challenges are happening, that we bear in mind two things. The first thing is that we try to reduce the evil as much as we can. So if the person says, Look, I can't move, okay, but what can you do to maximize the benefit, for example, try to come and spend more time with the Muslims in a more Muslim friendly area. Try to spend time at the masjid try to bring the Muslims to your to your to your place to stay with them to be around Muslim people try to reduce the evil. And the second thing that we can do is that we as a community have to support them. So when we hear of a river going through difficulty, we have to support them at the end of the day,

00:53:05--> 00:53:07

just like you would support your own family.

00:53:08--> 00:53:11

So you have to support your family that are your family in email, and Islam.

00:53:13--> 00:53:50

In the moment, we know that the believers are non brothers. So we have to have this connection with people. So we for example, we make an effort to visit them, we make an effort to be in touch with them to take phone numbers and so on and call them and ask how they are and we make an effort to invite them to our homes and we make an effort to visit them and we make an effort to connect them to the community so that they even if they have to live in that place. Any they live in that place knowing that they have the support of the Muslim community and also trying to find out ways to get out because if a person is sincere, Allah azza wa jal said we're Mia tequila ah Allah Who Maharajah

00:53:50--> 00:54:15

whoever has Taqwa of Allah and whoever protects themselves from Allah as punishment, whoever does the best they can to obey Allah, and the best they can to keep away from disobedience to Allah, Allah will make them away out. We have to be sincere looking for it. So whenever that opportunity comes to find a way out that you take it a male allies origin make it easy for you to find out without May Allah subhanaw taala accept it from you.

00:54:17--> 00:54:35

Do we have any questions from the brothers? Because I know you've been waiting patiently. And what happens is we get these papers and they go any further. I have a friend who lives in Greek Norse mythology, and he's asked, Does God define our goals in life? Or is it more along the lines of karmic balance? Be a good person? That's a

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

very, very good question. So a person is asking the question, is it God that defines our goals in life? Or is it more about just being a good person? So there is no doubt that the best one to define your goals in life is for God Himself, right? Because he knows everything. He knows what is best for you. He created you

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

He knows what is going to be good for you and what's going to be bad for you. And we as human beings regularly get that wrong.

00:55:06--> 00:55:35

We regularly get that wrong. What I say and Takahashi and wager Allah, Allah houfy fail on Kathiawar maybe you hate something, and it's really good for you. And reverse Maybe you love something and it's really bad for you. So ultimately, it's not just about being a good person. But it's about the fact that Allah subhanaw taala Almighty God has given us a purpose in life. And that purpose is defined for us. So for example, if I give you the example of a car,

00:55:36--> 00:56:19

a car was manufactured for a purpose, it was manufactured to drive. And yes, it is possible to take a car and stick it on your driveway and let it rust until the wheels fall off. But you never got out of it, what it was made for. It wasn't made to leave on your drive and then let the wheels fall off from rust and decay. He was made to drive. The reason we know it's made to drive is because it was manufactured it was made by someone that made it for a reason. Allah azza wa jal made you for a reason he made you to worship Him. And unless you fulfill that purpose, you'll be like that car that is rusting on someone's driveway. Any we're not saying there's no benefit at all, but you won't get

00:56:19--> 00:57:00

out of your life what you want from it. At the same time, does that mean that our deeds have no effect upon our life nor our deeds to the good that we do? The bad that we do for me, I met Miss Carla Martin watching hiera era where many scholars are writing chakra Euro, whoever does an atom's worth of good, the consequences of that they're going to see it. And whoever does an atom's weight of bad the consequences of that they also going to they're going to see in their life, they're going to experience it, if not in this life, then in the next then the question comes does that mean that we as Muslims are like robots, we're not allowed to have our own goals and dreams and human maybe

00:57:00--> 00:57:43

our our aspirations do, we're allowed to have them, but within the context of Islam, and that's why some people for example, Allah has given them success in charity, and they want to give charity and be good you know, they they love helping people. And that's their means to paradise Allah has given them a means within the permissible means of getting paradise, Allah has given it to them. And so those goals that they're striving for are within what Islam allows. But for example, there are some goals that a person is not allowed, like gathering wealth and status for the sake of it. Allah azza wa jal said, ya know, liquidly humans that in humans, a levy Gemma ama know what I did, the one who

00:57:43--> 00:58:22

gathers wealth and counts it and in front of the poor says, look how much money I have, I've got all this money, look how much money I've got. Either they spend their whole day counting how much money they have, or they spend their whole day reminding the poor people of how much money they have. Allah threatened them with Hellfire for this. So there are some things that you cannot have as your goals and purposes. And that's the essence of Islam, right? submitting to Allah. Islam is about submission, meaning that you take your desires and your goals, and you bring them in line with what Allah subhanaw taala wants from you. And that's why we consider or we call ourselves Muslim people

00:58:22--> 00:58:49

who have submitted. So I hope that answers Inshallah, to Allah, the question is about follow up as well. No function that he asks, How does God define our goals? And how do you know that you're on the right path? Is very good question. How does God define our goals? And how do you know that you're upon the right path? So the first thing is that the answer to these two can probably be brought together and say that it's scripture, and prophet hood that tell us what is right and wrong.

00:58:50--> 00:59:33

So Islam often gives us general goals, without necessarily giving us details in every single aspect that allows us to be individuals, right? Like Allah said, who they were more better off where I live and injure. He didn't take to pardoning people and allow that which is customary, and that's one of the Tafseer of the I allow that which is customary, and allow people to be their own individual will arrive and enjoy healing, and turn away from those who are ignorant. So that tells us that people do have a certain amount of flexibility, where they are allowed to choose things for themselves within the framework set by Islam. What is the framework set by Islam, Scripture and prophet hood?

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

Scripture is the revelation of Quran and the Sunnah, and the revelation that was given to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so when a person looks at Scripture and Prophet would they tell us what is right and wrong? And that's why in Surah 231, the very first sort of the Quran what do we ask Allah for? A dinner Serato study, guide us to the straight path. That path is defined later. How can I hurry ha It's night Islam.

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

Good stay liars who aren't here in LA Halleck no one goes away from me except that destroyed. So there is no issue with knowing what is right and wrong. When you follow scripture and you follow the way of the prophets or a mo salatu salam made the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all. That is how we know what is right and what is wrong. And that's how we know what our purposes are defined by. That doesn't stop you being an individual. It doesn't stop you having tastes and likes and dislikes. But it does set you towards a common goal that unites us and brings us together and that is to worship Allah alone or with your partner and to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

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

wasallam

01:00:37--> 01:00:41

Do we have any last last question for the brothers I think make this last one it's always very late for the brothers

01:00:44--> 01:01:06

I've answered this question many many times so I'm again I'm gonna give you summarized answer inshallah. The detailed answer is on my YouTube channel for plenty of people to see. There is no doubt that when it comes to tat with that is what sometimes people call timeout in amulets or things that are hung for protection.

01:01:08--> 01:01:40

There are two types, there is a tat with which is from the Quran, and attacked with which is not from the Quran. As for the TAT with which is not from the Quran, then this one, there is no doubt about it. There is no doubt in it being prohibited. And there is no doubt if a person believes that it benefits them instead of Allah, that they left the religion of Islam. And if a person believes Allah benefits them through it, then they have committed Shere Khan minus schicke. And this is for the tywi that is not from the Quran.

01:01:42--> 01:01:58

As for the week, that is from the Quran, Abdullah bin Massoud karate Allah who used to consider it to be haram and this is the general any generally what the Sahaba were upon, in general, that the Tao we've from the Quran is haram.

01:02:01--> 01:02:16

As for again, the TAT with which is from the Quran, it has another problem, which is that it is very hard to shake, it leads people to ship how because people believe that their takeaway is from the Quran when it's not from the Quran.

01:02:17--> 01:02:57

And that's why Allah subhanaw taala told us about those people. Y'all wanna al Sen humble kita, Lita, Cebu, Mina al Kitab, Mohammed Al Kitab we are Cullotta who Amin nd Allah, He was a man who I mean, Angela, were called out Allahu Keddy by our home. Yeah, there are people who twist their tongues with a recitation of the book to make you think it's from the Quran, but it's not from the Quran. And they say that it's from Allah but it's not from Allah and they speak about Allah ally welding. I've opened. I don't know I don't have a number. But I would say certainly over 1000 maybe more than that, of the different amulets and tat with people brought. And I could probably count on

01:02:57--> 01:03:25

one hand, definitely within to the number that were from the Quran. Almost everybody believed it was from the Quran. And I told you a story before but I just briefly mentioned it. That one one time sticks in my mind, one of the rare times so I used to have a deal. I say, bring your tat with. I'll open it. If it's from the Quran. I'll give it back to you. Even though I believe it's haram, but I'll give it back to you. Because you know, some of the taboo II might have allowed it. Oh, no problem. I'll give it back to you.

01:03:27--> 01:03:48

So one brother came, he said, Okay, I've heard you have a deal. If you open this tab, whether it's from the Quran, you're gonna give it back. I said, Yeah, because opening so I open it. And it's a printed page from the Quran is not written. It's not handwritten. I mean, someone went to quran.com and press printed. It was not anything I said, Look, Alhamdulillah it's a printed page from the Quran. Cause what

01:03:50--> 01:04:30

what? He cheated me. He lied to me this guy. He told me he's doing some some proper work for me and he just printed the page from the Quran. Wallah. They don't even want the title used to be from the Quran. They want it to be from Yanni all these squares and symbols and letters that all of the scholars of Islam unanimously agreed of from the shipyard and I'd be doing the things that are making a partner with Allah and Bidda and so on. Nobody wants to have a chat with like this. As for the weed from the Quran, I feel the majority of Muslims are fooled. People don't know what the Quran the average person, if I wrote poetry and gave it to them and said it's Quran they will believe me.

01:04:31--> 01:04:59

If I wrote any random letters and said it's Quran they believe me if I scribble and rotate, it's Quran they believe me. If I draw symbols, if I draw shapes, you know circle square circle square, it's Quran they believe. This is the gel that the people are living in. For this is why I believe it's a very act to shake. It's a means for people to make a partner with Allah. And that's why I completely agree with the statement of Abdullah and Mr. Ravi Allahu and that that we have is haram whether it's from the Quran or whether it's not from the Quran.

01:05:00--> 01:05:19

We have a detailed answer by the way, to those people who say this how they used to were to read. I have already answered that question in detail with the evidences from Masana for everyone and even at the CHE Rahim Allah to Allah and others, that we've already responded to that. Okay, I think it's a good place for us to start. Just text me with a question. Can I ask you how

01:05:21--> 01:05:22

long vision is a

01:05:23--> 01:05:24

misconception?

01:05:26--> 01:05:34

In your talk, you mentioned that Quran is a jigsaw puzzle. Okay, can you shed more light on this please? Okay, let me go from let's give you the

01:05:36--> 01:05:50

joining bits to this study also provides some guidance on how best to approach it without deviating from the true meaning. And then you also some other parts of this. We have English translations of the Quran.

01:05:52--> 01:05:54

But they're not accurate as the Quranic Arabic.

01:05:57--> 01:06:04

Speakers get around this. What sources would you recommend? Type? That's all I can remember. So

01:06:06--> 01:06:48

that's all I can remember. So first of all, I think the problem is sometimes people hear a bit of what you say, but they don't really listen to the whole thing or touch the whole thing that you said, I definitely didn't say the Quran is a jigsaw puzzle. I think what I was saying is that these three i Art fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, in the sense that each one of them complements the other. That's what I meant. So what I meant here is not that the Quran is a jigsaw puzzle, the Quran is Quran. But what I meant is that the Quran fits together the IR don't contradict each other. They don't go on top of each other, they fit together to make a complete picture. That's something any

01:06:48--> 01:07:33

that's what you call it another analogy or whatever, call it, simile or something like that. So I can't remember. But it's something it's, it's basically giving you something what we call Tucker Abraham, helping you to understand by saying that the IRS don't clash against each other, rather the ayat, they are complementary and they fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle type. That's one point. The next point is how does a person approach the Tafseer of the Quran? There is no doubt that it's true, that translations of the Quran translation of the meaning of the Quran all this is, is this is the translators. Tafseer and translation combined is very important. A lot of people make

01:07:33--> 01:07:51

a big mistake in this. They believe that a translation is a word for word literal, you know, bringing up the Arabic into English, this is Mr. Hate, it's impossible, because words in Arabic have many many meanings and sometimes one ayah could have eight meanings.

01:07:52--> 01:08:01

And there can be differences of opinion in it. So the translator has to first of all make Tafseer and then bring the tafsir into English.

01:08:03--> 01:08:09

It has to be like that. So they cannot for example, when the translator says for example.

01:08:12--> 01:08:52

For example, what Mahalo to Regina will insert Ilaria Abu I only created the jinn and the men to worship Me alone. In reality, this is Tafseer first, the first thing I did is make Tafseer of the aisle and then translate it is not a translation of the aisle because the words are too deep. For example, the statement of ebony Ibis doesn't agree with that Tafseer. And the statement of ebony Ibis is excluded from the translation that I gave you. That's not the Tafseer of me advice at all. So the point is that I first of all made tafsir and then I brought the translation. And that's the case of all translations of the Quran. The best option that you can do is to learn two things.

01:08:52--> 01:08:56

Number one, to strive to learn the Arabic language. That's the first thing

01:08:58--> 01:09:26

to strive to learn the Arabic language don't say it's too hard Arabic is gonna take me too long. I won't understand the Quran. Allah two years of hard work. I'm not going to say you understand the Quran like a native but you will understand a good amount of the Quran in two years of hard work. The next thing is take a subject which we call a sort of tafseer the principles of tafsir you can find the video just go on to M au and type in Tafseer

01:09:27--> 01:09:43

go to YouTube, go to a m au and type in Tafseer there should be a video I'm sure Shut up man has one which is called Kadima fuel sorta tafsir I'm just gonna double check. It's on our YouTube channel. It's not on Calamus it might be on Calamus let's see.

01:09:50--> 01:10:00

Let's see. Here it is. Eight pots, the all sorts of tips and Tafseer of Ibn Taymiyyah by Chef Trotman has this one you can

01:10:00--> 01:10:19

find it very nice it will explain to you how to approach Tafseer and how do we even make Tafseer of the Quran? Where does Tafseer even come from? For example to have zero Quran evil Quran? Sometimes the Quran explains itself to have zero Quran the Sunnah. Sometimes the Sunnah, explains the Quran Tafseer

01:10:21--> 01:10:22

Quran

01:10:23--> 01:10:58

Tafseer of the Quran from the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu the Tafseer of the Quran from the Imams of the tablet even then the Tafseer of the Quran in the Arabic language to what extent do we accept it or not accept it, there's this all is discussed the approach to tafsir understanding the Quran, just type in A M au tafsir and look for a video series called ossola tafsir ossola tafsir Ibn Taymiyyah Ibn Taymiyyah is also in Tafseer is very, very good and it's eight parts. Each one is about half an hour long. So inshallah you benefit from it. Bismillah What else was there in the question? That was it?

01:11:04--> 01:11:18

What are some more plots? I think we have to we have to stop it there. That's what Allah azza wa jal made easy for me to mention Allah knows best. Wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad was early he was so happy Ah, man. One just one small point.
