Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah
one abbiamo to do low wind in your home or the Aloha tired on home out corner corner Rasulullah his Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while Atlanta mitotane with a man for Ahmed Mater 24 Gerardo and when I met them and he felt a bit hollow.
Imagine what he has often narrated abnormal, the Allahu anhu Allah messenger sola lohana, who was sent him I said, two types of dead animals and two types of bloods have been made lawful for us. The two types of dead animals are locusts and fish seafood, while the two types of bloods are the liver in the spleen, reported by Ahmed and Ebony magic in this hadith has some weakness smilla hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah
where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said two types of dead animals and two types of bloods have been made lawful for us to heal Atlanta Matan.
So, that means have any Anoma can utter Mahabharata
that means it was lawful then they became lawful, because he will see saying here, these two types of blood have been made lawful for us. So that means something has changed and the prophets has allowed them to use these two types of Bloods and two types of dead animals. What are the two types of dead animals that you mentioned here? Fish, okay. And Allahu
Allahu in Arabic language and Hoot in Arabic language. Means
could means the small fish and could means the big fish
fell takoma hula hoop and the story of Jana Jonas, when he jumped off the ship. What happened? The well swallow him and he swallowed and he was inside a huge
inside the well. By the way, I found it very interesting
to know that in modern days, there is people actually said that they were swallowed by well, and survived for two three days, then this will spit them out after that. Have you ever looked into that online? It's common, there is several incidents reported. And Portuguese in Spain and Portuguese in a specific in particular, I read several incident been reported of sell sailors, sailors and any men who've been actually swamped by the well, and these stayed for a couple of days, then they spit them out later on. You can Google ama but not now.
So you basically it's very interesting to know that a lot of how accurate this reporting are. But that's something just to keep in mind. So it could be that well, because Eunice cannot be taken inside a small fish. That's right. So it's basically the large fish also means a small fish. You remember when we studying the interpretation of skeleton calf? Allah subhanaw taala said Venezia who Tahoma they forgot and heard that they carried with them. Obviously they're not carrying the well.
With them Moosa on his server. That's right. Must be a small fish that they carry with them. So the word aleut could refer to the big fish or small fish. Okay, here it means any fish
aleut literally means fish. The is this ruling only related to fish. Can I apply this to lobster? Can I apply this to shrimp? Can I apply this to any
water snake? That the one that lives and breathe inside the water?
Can I apply this to eel? I love you. Especially like sushi as my favorite. Okay, so Is that a lot? Can you do that?
You have to try it Mohamad. You know you have to try it.
No, just when you go there ask for eel sushi is very nice.
Hey, look at me. Have you? Would you like to try some meal? No. Okay. Okay. And I
so can we say that this? For example, oyster? Isn't? Is that a fish? No. marine biologists will say about that. But these are like let's say somebody says not a fish. We say it is also take the same rulings.
Why? Because when the prophets of Salaam said and hoot, he didn't limit only that to the fish. That's why we did not nobody understand I put a very specific type of fish. It means the seafood that the animals that basically live in the sea, breathe inside the seat. These are the enemy knows that we are allowed to or spend all their life inside the seat. Some scholars define them the one who breathe inside the water. And I don't agree with that. Why? Because well breathe outside.
That's right. They go up, out to breathe and they go down. So that's not doesn't mean necessarily to breathe. But if you take the well outside the water, it will die.
So any animals that cannot survive outside the water, we call it fish. Technically, maybe ologists will not agree with us. But technically in shediac that's considered a fish. any animal that you take it out, it will survive and not die. It's considered a fish. They for instance, what do you guys think of alligator?
Can we give it to the rim pruning of fish? Somebody said alligator I spent most of their time in the water.
But they can survive outside the water that's right will not die. It's not like the fish. It's not like well die. The same thing with
turtles. That's right. Turtles, the state turtles can stay up to 30 minutes, 25 minutes to 30 minutes inside the water without breathing.
And when they go to sleep, they can go all the way to 15 minutes without breathing.
They basically the blood circulation go too slow. And their blood and their heart go in a mood of kind of hibernation. So it will not breathe fast that will allow them to remain 15 minutes inside the water. I always Yeah. And he was wondering how they spend the night how they sleep because turtles in the ocean, they sleep inside the water. They go all the way to the bottom and they sleep. So I was thinking how they sleep.
That's right. It's kind of interesting. So I asked one of my terps I asked him a marine biologist and he said how the how the debris. And he told me I'll show you in the night. So we dove in the night and we sold them actually in the bottom of the ocean. they land on the sand and they stick their heads out and they stick it inside the sand is very interesting. So their blood circulation became very slow. So they actually spend about almost 15 minutes sleeping and then they go take one breath and they come back and they continue their sleep.
That's how they sleep in the night.
Anyway so that we don't call them fish because they can survive outside the sea.
The prophet SAW Selim said here the Lucas or the grasshopper grasshoppers, or the grasshopper and Lucas are ultrahd or two dead animals that we are allowed to eat.
We'll talk more about that.
When we say dead, it means the
died by themselves or the died by the actions of others.
Let's say you are in the seat.
Okay. And you are fishing anybody who goes fishing? One two, we have the professional
Masha Allah very good for Shell to any all the sisters know you go fishing. Good. So is it common when you catch a fish? Another big fish come and bite the fish? Very common. That's right. You get a red snapper awesome sharp Come on cut. By the time you get it out it's going to be what dead? Are you allowed to eat it?
What I just said the ruling is a dead animal died by itself or by someone else.
Someone else could be the human or it could be another animal.
So the other animal killed and you're still allowed to eat it.
You got it? Or you yourself Take it and you kill the animal. Any one of the most cruel cooking is how they cook crap. You know how the the cooker it's just very cruel. I just don't want to think about it. Because they cook it alive. Actually.
They take it they put it in the pot, or it's like oil or like hot, boiling water while it's alive. And they just dip it inside into the die.
So you killed it didn't die by itself. Are you allowed to eat it? Yes. So anything like that some people, they take the fish out, then they hit the fish would the you know with the hammer like with
Pat back and they kill it then they will eat it. So it doesn't matter. It died by itself or died by something else another animal or human being killed it actually you're allowed to eat it. Same thing with the locusts or the grasshopper. You find them dead or you take them and you kill them. You know how they cook the grasshopper
they basically they do the same thing they they there is many ways they do it. They either boil water, then they take the grasshopper and they dump it inside the boiling water the same way. You you cook your
the same way you dump it into boiling water or steam or you take a stick and you put the grasshopper and then you basically barbecue it
Look who's laughing
and Malaysia do
you do that?
Yeah Good. We'll talk about who eats grasshopper coming. I don't know about your mom but
there is like more than that.
there is a hadith I want to pick you pay attention to it. This Hadith is very weak and is not a hadith that we can rely on. Which is a headed report development. Allah and the Prophet Salim said now our JSON hufa kulu
kulu there is a hadith said that any animal that is dead and floating in the surface of the water you're not allowed to eat. So if the animal of the fish floating on the top of the surface of the ocean, you're not allowed to eat this honey this week.
Okay, and an Imam
even hajra Himalayan. No he said this hadith by the agreement of the scholars of Hadith is weak. And know your Rahim Allah said and we know for sure that the prophets are solemn companions in the incident of obey that of the alarm
when they were traveling in Judah dead
and the wave through to the shore. So what the Sahaba the alarm dead, it's so big that the companion said I went all the way in the top of it. And it was inside the socket of the whale.
And the I entered the socket of the way on I have a pocket and start basically taking all the oil out of it. I have a picture
of a diver who's actually you know, with the fin, the divers fins are very long. Can you imagine that's well if you stretch him It will be like at least at least eight feet long. Okay. He is taking a picture of him and especially freedivers their their fences much
longer than the scuba diver. So that free divers, it's a picture of him next to the whale, him and the fins are smaller than the eye socket of that well
so these animals can be huge. Anyway, so no to him Allah said this had eaten authentic and a little hot and others that they ate from it. And they took from the meat of that the
carcass, that's what they call it, that that dead well and they took that meat and they put it in the sun put salt on it and they make it like jerky as we say today
and that's an animal that was floating under under the seat.
They Before we go further to mean into the Hadith and the film on the ruling of the Hadith. I want to say this hadith in Eman even harder he said, reported by Ahmed and imagine and his Hadith and this hadith has some weakness. Why? Because this narration has a narrator by the name of Abdul Rahman Ibn Zayd even Aslam and by the agreement of the scholar of Hadith is a weak narrator. So this hadith like this, no doubt it's weak.
Who might say Shia after all what explaining now you telling us week it is week as an aeration, suggesting that the prophets are solemn said that. But this hadith was narrated also, without even Omar saying the Prophet set
as a statement from an aroma hadn't submitted, hadn't had the smell poof it's a statement vibrant urban aroma said two type of bloods two type of dead animals made lawful for us.
Question when any companion set this been made lawful for us, this been made unlawful for us. We've been prohibited to do that.
Who is the companions referring to?
Rosaura. Last sallallahu is on That's right, because the companions will take only this lesion from her from her sofa either on the hill at her remit. Surely, it means the Prophet told them that we call this an intimate Hadith lo hoekman. Raja take the same ruling as of the, as of the companion said, The Prophet said.
So, yes, the narration as a statement have been Omar is authentic. The status of an Emerson the prophets in his week. Yes, but in the end of the day, the one of a bin Omar, it basically lead to what
lead to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That's why we consider this statement. Or this hadith is basically acceptable because of the other narration which is taken from a refer. We take the same ruling of as of the signature of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it's antic. That's why we say this hadith is acceptable and reliable, you can rely on to hear why it was made level because Allah said in the Quran, in namaha, Rama and a Komal maita demo at McKinsey Rio de la Hebei. In surah baqarah verse 173, Allah smart Allah said, what's been forbidden upon you to eat is the dead animal the blood, so the dead animal and blood are forbidden for us to consume.
So from this general statement, here exception was made.
These exceptions were made in regard to for things to dead animals and two type of bloods that became lawful for us to eat loaf of us to consume. That's why he said it's been made lawful for us.
Allah subhanaw taala also said and salted Anam Ola ijebu female Oh hiya Elijah, Muhammad Allah upon me Obama who illa yagoona maten odema Miss who have a very important verse softly Nam verse 45 a las pantalla saying I don't see anything in the message or the legislation of Allah tada I don't see in what have been revealed to me, forbade upon us to consume any type of food except that this meat
comes from a dead animal, or Demis Phu what's Devon Miss will have a blood that was basically a gushing blood,
the blood that gush out the blood that a spell.
That's how long that's not allowed
for us to consume. And so on till May that also sort of three or last month I sent her a metallic Amal Mater to a dump the dead animal and blood they made forbidden upon you to eat have to drink. People in the old days used to eat that animals and used to drink blood. And until today, that is certain culture, they believe that drinking blood, it will give you strength, it will make you youth. And even I seen some disgusting pictures of animals that specifically they believe in it, for example, it this is in Thailand, and even in some places in Russia and China, the what we do the take the tiger, the Siberian tiger, and the hunted and they put it upside down against gravity, then
they go to the to the vein, and they basically cut it for the blood to gush out and the cup, then they drink it. And that makes you Tiger I guess.
Okay, or if you see in some practices in Africa and other places they go, and they basically stop the ball in the neck. So the blood will start gushing and put it in a cup then they drink it.
Or monkeys they drink the blood of the monkey is very expensive. They do that in Taiwan in areas like this.
So it This became absolutely how long it is snap. Also in the old days, they used to drink blood, especially those who do magic, and enter today. It's one of the common practice among magicians, that the Ask the person to drink blood, raw blood from an animal, so the drink.
So as the verse shade Demis feu, a blood that basically spilled gushing up
that made a difference between the blood that remain in the vein, and the blood that comes out of the blood of the body.
According to the majority of the Muslim jurist, the blood that stay inside the animal, if you eat it with the meat, it's permissible.
give you example, I like my steak rare.
I like my steak in a rare and steak which is rare, I still have what trace of blood in it. That will be allowed. What's not allowed is when the blood is out or basically pouring out and you take the cup
or blood is separate. You take the stake, squeeze the blood and an A cup and you make a cup out of blood then you drink it. But as long as inside like some time, chicken, how many times people invited me to eat chicken in that house. And you break the chicken or brothers wanna barbecue chicken for you. You see in the bone trace of blood. That's right.
Is that means the chicken haraam spit it out?
It's disgusting, but it's still a lot. Okay, but it's not how long to eat. So here as long as the blood inside the meat or the piece, it's allowed, it's not became haram or forbidden to consume. And in American law said
there is a rule which is very interesting rule that says yes, a hotel bar And man is an island. This rule is very interesting. They said sometimes there is things by themselves are hidden. But when they are part of something else, they are allowed
any blood by itself. But because it's part of the meat, it's allowed.
They said for example, worms.
You're not allowed to snack and worms majority because it's not a lot.
But if you eat a date that has worms in it, they will allowed
another example. It's not allowed to buy something you don't you have a lot of you have no knowledge of it. You have to be fully aware of the things that you are purchasing. That's right. But let's say I go and
I buy a car
Okay, I bought a car. So I get this car. And all of a sudden, I found that there is things in the car, I wasn't aware of it.
there is extra cupholder, there is extra light here and there, these little things are forgiving because they are part of a big deal.
That's right. So the big deal, because it's part of it, it's became allowed. But if it's by itself, it's not allowed
a following. So this is very effective rules. Let's say, I want to
admit, for example, from a login, also example of what
you know, if I want to buy an image by itself, but you know what I'm buying a Lacoste, or buying a brand, that it has a shark on it, or it has a crocodile or it has a small image here and there. They said that should be allowed because it's part of
your following. I give another example.
Let's say we are going to put
this is can be debatable, but I believe it's applicable on the same rolling. Let's we're going to put a flags out there. And these flags represents the countries of the people who come to the master. And one of them is the Sweden flag, which has a cross.
I'm not tracing across the cross is part of the flag.
You see the different so this ruling is a very beneficial, I believe that music is not allowed. But if the music is part of something else, I'm buying a toy, I'm buying an app or I'm buying a program and the music comes as part of it is not meant for itself. I would say it's a lot. So that is many manifestation or many uses for this ruling that we use in Sharia. So one of it is here the issue of the blood being part of the meat.
They asked for the locusts or the grasshoppers.
This is also interesting that it is allowed to eat it even if it is dead. The fish we talked about it before. It's allowed to eat it and then there be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In the Hadith in the authentic hadith the Sahaba said I was in the company with the person and seven battles seven has a lot and we used to eat grasshoppers
so that's why it is a consensus agreement between all the Muslim scholars that eating the grasshoppers is allowed. And remember Rahim Allah made some hot said except the grasshoppers have and Dennis is not allowed to eat.
Why they said because it's a poison type this grasshoppers has poison in it so it's not because the grasshopper because of the vada that the harm that comes similar to today in modern days in many places they basically spray these grasshopper to kill them with chemical and I know for example Saudi Arabia and incident happened a few years back people died because the purchase or the cut some of these grasshoppers which has basically been sprayed by chemical to kill them then they found them dead they catch them the in them they die that chemical go on their body and they die.
Grab grasshoppers are MOBA permissible to eat
and dip grasshoppers is very unique.
creature just for the record, grasshoppers been around for a very long time. grasshopper existed before dinosaurs
and survived after dinosaurs until today. So don't underestimate the power of the grasshopper. You know, in grasshoppers are very unique animals are very unique insects, you know, their earrings, the their ear, the here, okay, their ears are in their bellies and their stomach it's nothing their head. It's this very unique animal.
They basically if you look at them, there is even some people saying the concept of catapult edmontonian comes from grasshopper because the way grasshoppers the basically
Kind of building themselves. They push the heavy part of themselves up so the jump from one place to another, literally they can even fly. grasshopper cause billions of dollars in damages to food crops annually worldwide.
Even grasshopper doesn't eat much it eats every day half of it is size
plant. Okay, so depends on its size to eat half of its size every day. But when you have basically, locusts swarm,
that large number I became devastating.
Just in the US and America only. Every year we lose $1.5 billion in damaging
and damages because of grasshopper. Were all the technology that we have $1.5 billion every year.
One year in Kenya, grasshoppers one came in 1954 the consumed over 200 square kilometers. Can you imagine that? 200 That's it. That's a forest 200
square kilometers of wild and cultivated plants.
grasshoppers are also very important source of protein Hammad is asking me about protein that day. Okay, just in case.
It's a very important source of protein. People in many parts of the world they can still consume grasshoppers the eat grasshopper
from what I heard, I'm not sure I don't remember if I tried once or not, but I think I did. But from what I remember, it's delicious. Okay.
People have been eaten locusts and grasshopper for centuries. john the baptist even the Bible. Okay ate grasshopper and people have been eating this lot
it's a very common in Africa and Asia and down south in Mexico. They eat grass OPERS a lot. It's a
it's part of the Mexican cuisine in Kenya and so forth. By the way, every one grasshopper contain six grams of protein
every one contains six grams of protein
I'm not trying to promote eating grasshopper here but if you if you guys want to eat it, it is not a bad idea. grasshopper is like six grams of protein just one of them if you eat it.
I'm saying this because some people said Oh, the Prophet saying that eating grasshoppers was disgusting thing, not just different cultures.
Different cultures eat different type of food.
As for the two bloods that the process I'm talking about, which is basically that and Cabot liver, and spleen.
and spleen is very known to all of you there is much so much blood inside them.
And what the prophet meant it meant you are allowed to eat them before washing them.
Have you ever tried raw liver
I did. You know and no one is young. That's like a common thing in Arabia. They do when they cut when they kill the sheep and they open the sheep guts. And they take it out. They take the lever, then they cut the lever. They just wash it with water. put salt and pepper and you eat it sushi style. Okay, and you just eat it so it has a lot of blood inside it. If you bite it, it will be a bloody mouth. You know, it's like
that's the closest things you can get to Dracula and are like vampire. Okay, so if you do that or a spleen that has a lot of blood in it when you eat it. Doctors will tell us Be very careful with eating liver because liver is basically filter that's right doctor. So it's not a very safe thing to eat it this way I would assume this right.
Not dry definitely. But you know, it's just in some culture. They do that I guess that immunity system
is very high. But anyway when you abide it that is a lot. It's a lot it's a lot of iron as far as I know, because it's
basically blood. But
in any way it is not forbidden somebody said talam because the blood inside it is so much because it's inside is not like a gushing blood that's why it is permissible.
The next day through the prophet sallallahu Sallam
I guess we'll stop here show
me the next honey this very simple. I will just go over very quickly. The prophets of Salaam said either Waka babelfish iffi sharabi a haidakhan failure Miss to millions are now we'll keep it for next was like more to talk about it second. Okay, thank you very much.
The grasshopper the eat the stomach. Yeah, they see. Yeah, they take the legs out. Yeah. And it's like the crawfish you just you know you suck everything.
Very good. He said the imitation crab meat that has alcohol in it. I don't eat it.
I have something for you. By the way just for you. If you don't mind, just wait for me sir. sekolah
the crabmeat because as I call it, I avoided because I don't know if alcohol stir. Stay in it as one of its elements. But if it is chemically completely changed will be allowed. But I don't know. I think it's stay is one of the elements. So I need to research this more. But I don't need it. And yeah, I avoided since I get Yeah, I know. Yeah, I wouldn't need it.
Thank you very much. I'll see y'all next week.
