All right, this series
inshallah with Chef with ease. We'll also be doing it with Jessie acid with Jess as well as answer some questions. There's been a lot of unprecedented issues
that I will share.
And then we can co host. So there's been a lot of unprecedented
issues that people have been dealing with. I know that the American Muslim jurists Association has been, you know, just working really hard to create,
to present declarations on all of these questions that people have really only experienced, and maybe never even in our lifetimes. So
today, inshallah Allah will be answering as many questions as we can within the scheduled hour. And it looks like he's joining us.
Jeff, can you hear me? Yes, I did. I know, Simon, welcome. So I like your awesome article.
Local aphasia. So what we're going to be doing is, there's a lot of questions, of course, with a Raspberry Pi, that a lot of acts of worship, that we've never really, I mean, everything from celebrity Juma being played as the whole at home attack is being shut down. There's a lot that we really want to get into. And so if you can just begin with a little bit of, you know, just perspective on what you've been seeing on the ground, not just Houston but nationwide over the past two weeks.
Or so Salam ala rasulillah, who it was like to be human, what about, first of all, I would like to say that
I asked colossal Sanatana by his names and attributes to relief, this disaster, and this epidemic, that the world is suffering from.
We believe in the last panel to honor more in such time masaba men mostly, but in elaborate et la, what may you mean? Billa? Yeah,
that was kind of data set, that any calamity strike struck you. It is by the will of Allah and whoever Allah guides his or their heart, and whoever believe Allah will guide their hearts. So believe is so important such time. So your heart will be your man from inside your, your spirit will be high and strong. And this is something so important to keep checking, increasing, helping one another, not only in food and financially, but also in spirituality and making sure that we are strong from in sight, you know, that Allah Subhana, Allah is our protector, and he is the one who will
always be there for us. But before I answer these questions, in regard to what's happening, there's two things I want you to reflect upon with me.
Number one, is we see how that great need of the scholars in such time, sometimes we kind of,
don't see the importance of the role of the scholars in our life and our community. But now when all these things happen, and you need fatwas, and you need answer for these new things, and be this circumstances, you see that that Muslim community turn to their scholars, and this is something show you the value of the scholars and the time when you need them the most. And I hope and I asked those kind of data that are imams of leaders, religious leaders in America and around the world will stand up for their community and they will be there for them answering the questions and we see how the Sharia is filled with solutions in the time like this and guidelines to guide us and such time.
I'm sure many of you have seen these videos have been crying while the giving then nobody can come to the master. Today in Texas, the governor made an executive order that no more than 10 people can be gathering at one time. Now and we were talking about closing down massages already that as many massages did that no Juma no solid.
It is very hard for the movement when he see that Allah subhanaw taala stripped from you
access to do good access to increase your rewards, access to you know to a raise your sense. So this whole Coronavirus started.
We used to shake everybody to shake each other's hands and every time I shake your hand, my sins fall
from my record and removed from my record the way that when you shake
tree, and how the leaves falling down. That's how the person said, Every time you shake your brothers or sister shakers, another sisters hand, that's what will happen to them. Can you imagine you can do that
a lot on the couch, Allah took away from you this ability.
It's the worst thing that ever can happen to a believer, and to having a person, not that a lot take away from us health or money or children or whatever you think of is that ability to do more good can imagine just he can do, he
can do so often Gemma anymore. You can do so much in Joomla. In many places, I'll take it away from us.
This is scary.
This is so, so terrifying when you think about it.
And it is something that is required for us to be serious, and repentance, and begging Allah Subhana Allah that this is not the result of anger, right us
that also at the same time,
direct us to something that Allah loves so much, which is October repentance, changing our life.
In order for this circumstances that we are living in to be changed, we need to change ourselves in a lot. A lot of people have told us that a lot. Now you might be unhappy or maybe unforeseen alone will not change our circumstances. And what's happening just unless we change,
nothing need to be changed our relationship with Allah. So with all these rules that were given exceptions to it goes back to this point, that it really wasn't the point is not what kind of exit I have for you. I think the only the ultimate exit for us today is to return to Allah subhanaw taala. And to hold into the little bit, that allows you to have enough for us to use to increase our our demand, and to raise our sense.
ask Allah subhana wa Taala.
to shower us with His mercy and to forgive all of us, in sha Allah, I will be happy to take your questions and answer them accordingly. So Mark, you can start with whatever questions we gathered the common questions that we've been seeing going around, and I will make sure that you can make it as short as possible. So the first one is with regards to movement, actually. So what's the ruling on leaving a place where the virus is spread? You have people who are traveling from Europe to the United States, you have some cities that are under quarantine isn't allowed for a person to leave that might have a problem from a lightness and look at
this is an issue that I've talked about in regard to Heather Hardy was
that interview some a lot of them said
any if you hear
in the canopy, if you hear about there is a land where is the plague do not enter Do not leave it. But this issue of not entering or not leave it
is it absolutely not allowed to leave if there is any type of pandemic or epidemic in this area or this region is this apply also to the flu, for example, if there isn't an emic of flows that apply for all kinds of sickness, or it is only to the plate. So I have different positions in relation to this. And many of the scholars said, Actually, there is almost agreement among the scholars saying that the person who is in a land of infection infected land, or there is a pandemic, if that person is not infected, and it's safe for him to leave the place, he is allowed to leave. And that's why
he asked what to leave the place where the plague was, and to leave it. And also that's why I'm asked he asked the people to leave that land where the plague was, and to go separate in very small groups or individuals around to the mountains. So they didn't believe that you know, stay there until it ends or not.
But also said that you don't run away at because you don't believe in either philosophy. But those who leave it, learn about hair loss and if somebody also can leave it because will there is a cure somewhere else you will be moved to hospital
or important work and this person is safe for him to leave. That's why I will cite that by looking at the older like
debate between the scholars or him on the log to honor
It's interesting to see that, but also, it is more important for us to understand that this has has to be consulted with public health officials, people who are specialized in infectious diseases, and they will basically make that call if it is safe for most people to leave or travel from one place to another. It also depends if that person is infected or not, and the type of virus and the type of disease. So for example, if you tell me right now, if you are, for example, in New York, or
Florida, or there's a place with an outbreak or Seattle, and you want to go to your home, and your basically your instructions on traveling or ban and traveling, and you are safe, it is it is okay. If it is something and you put yourself in self quarantine. And you follow that the basic directions, that will be fine. So this is
different than what it is no, it's not safe at all an owl, like doctors and public health officials said no, you can't leave. And that's why any
low to Ana differentiates also between the plague and pandemic, pandemic epidemic diseases or viruses. plague is a bacteria
like viruses like what we see. So you will find that elements that
don't leave the line was returning to the plate, not referring to any type of viruses or infectious diseases and a whole lot. If you look at your site, it's interesting. He brought the Hadith where it says not allowed to leave the land where plague is, but also he said bad man, hello German out of the natrona mo. He said
leaving a line there's a chapter leaving a land that doesn't fit you there his land is infected. And this land is not safe for you to be there. So because of this, I leave it and he mentioned this and he mentioned the Hadith nebby salam O Allah who it was sunny send them were a group of people came to the profits of Solomon Medina, and they were infected. The the weather in Medina was not good. And he got he got sick. So in the midst of some of them, and they got the sickness of spread among them, and allowed them because they were they have herds and something that he said you stay outside of Medina, you can go behind your Apple, your camels, goats, and follow them and be around the
Medina Law Center is allowing them to leave actually, and to go look after their businesses. So have them had another set and body rahimullah bringing this chapter after the chapter of not entering the land of a plague and leaving it is to make the distinguish and to lean towards distinguish between a bone the plague and any infection diseases and also at the same time in the permissibility of leaving if it is safe. Yes.
So chef, Does that answer the question of
the provenance of the lights and I'm saying that plague the job do not enter Medina and yet we see that Medina shut down right now. Shut down.
plague will not enter Mecca Medina, as far as we know from the prophets of Salaam Hadid, even the famous Hadith, that new body indeed be subtle, allow us to send them
today with some finite knowledge the job full time and not only will not enter Medina, but also there is another generation and Allah
says that Mecca and Medina so these two cities are protected from plague. But is that means they are protected from infectious diseases? No, that's not true. You just heard me saying that a lot is
Bedouins who came to the problem got infected and they were very sick and hardly reported is what he said. I came to Medina and they were a disease spread in Medina. And they were dying in 10s of them daily on YouTube remote and there are a large number of them dying every day. And I could talk to him about that during that time. Okay, so that means that Medina have these kind of diseases and MCE historically speaking, there's a lot, even some of them I said there is a plague haben maccha in 749 hijiri, but that have been handled by him. Allah said it wasn't a plague. It was a disease like an infectious disease epidemic. So that's why we differentiate between the two and we say Mecca Medina
are not protected from any pandemic
or outbreak of viruses.
Like what we see today.
Okay, so And for those of you who are interested, our
colleague shall save note, he wrote an actual, pretty extensive study on this topic on the issue of the plagues in Medina. And I would encourage you to check that out from the legacy Institute.
If I can find it's actually called prophetic guidance on epidemic disease, credit guidance on epidemic disease. So, that being said, Yes, let's continue. So we have the next question is many messages have now we're getting into the Juma prayer section and this is for many massages are suspended during my parents, is it allowed from affected? Is it correct for them to suspend my affairs? And what should we do if that happens in our community?
So not from the lifecycle, so luck that suspending Juma is allowed in cases where, for example, in our community today, if there is quarantine, mandated quarantine or an executive order by the mayor or the governor or the federal government, and nobody can do that, in states, but whatever you live, that it became not allowed an illegal for people to gather
period. So this the case, tomorrow cannot be established because nobody can leave and congregate in any form or issue any number.
But if there is a limit was put like let's say in Texas today, our governor said 10 people that's not more than 10 people, we say that those 10 people can come and pray the Juma by themselves, at least the Shelton to Islam they should be able to do it so still existed, it's not completely abandoned
from the master, and if it's safe, but if it is not safe, and they cannot take the precautions that will guarantee safety for them, you should not come and if there's a sick person is not allowed to come to the Juma or to the gym out to the regular parents. A person who has someone
sick at home or elderly or pregnant woman or an infant or someone with their immune system is compromised and not allowed to come to Joomla or to Jamaica because of the fear of delivering that
virus to the people though, as you know, the Coronavirus is very contagious virus
the COVID-19 it's very contagious and it's not it's not safe for so many people to be gathering if they don't follow the precaution. We think still this very small number of people can pray even if it's limited to a less number than that
the candles were saying seven eight people can come and pray together. Yes, actually show Kenya human law allowed by two people a man and a male, one person to listen to the whole book and you have an hanabi that some of them that's the chosen shot the samurai must set an Imam and two people and the reason they said that because on some of that why didn't they be so Salim said that you had to come on you suddenly become one if you call the man and and one of you leave both of you. So he means that when we say two people were talking about to male residents, adults, yes. And also could not for example said three, the Imam and three listen abusive said to the person three other than
the email. So if you want to at least, you know, look at many scholars said if it is allowed by an Imam and three people listening to the tapes of four people will start with their mouth, they keep their distance from one another. And they make it short. And that's the Juma establish, you know, I know it's a more of a symbolic thing. But it is something that it shows a level of commitment. And also this is something that hopefully a lot pannacotta
sees us and sees how we are in great need and desperate for him. And that's hopefully well make the heart realize that this drama and that we used to come to it and we take it for granted. It's not for granted anymore. The jumar that we go to it half sleeve and we don't care now even can't come to it. And it is fascinating how I see people maybe never in their life cared for Juma that much now they are so you know talking about an exciting in Japan. I know he hope after this will go away, that will lead to an increased number of people coming to the Jumanji and people feel because when you miss something, you know the value of it, or do you have it for granted? You just kind of lose
its value. So I hope that's one of the benefits of what we're living in today.
I'm actually amazed myself chef, I've gotten so many questions with regards to can we listen to a live stream lecture record your mind and pray together to live as a family of four like as as a family so
would be the case in that sense? Tomorrow's Friday, do you man can we watch a live stream and they just pay together as a family at home?
Okay, you can watch the hotel from home or from wherever you at but you cannot follow the Imam you cannot pray Juma with them online. I don't know any one among the former that had forgotten that I have not will give any form of like opinions or something like that. Because you might say, oh, there's no internet in their time. Yeah. But they talked about the issue of praying and following the drama from a very far distance. You know, how a great deal of discussion over that some of them like 300 garages about 150 meters away from each others, that's the maximum and the min, because that's how people can see each other, can listen to them, can listen to the gym, to the to the
technique and can see them. But But to say that someone lives completely very far away, I will follow them. Because what is the drama and drama? I mean, it means we've come together. But that's not happening. That's not coming together. That's just goes against the idea behind the hikma and the reason the wisdom behind salatu wa Jalla is to come together to be together. And that's not happening. And that's why I don't believe you need to do that you just pray Lord, but you can listen to that clip online. Like you listen to anymore. A reminder but you please pray Lord for lockouts. And they don't know any libels colors actually, and then fed to our committee will allow such
practice. I'm aware of a couple of here and there. But this is something dangerous. This is everybody else say that invalid a lot. You know, and that's not that's something you want to take the risk and I just pray. Everybody say you are allowed to pray? And also what will happen of the internet slow down while you're in your first walk? or cut the connection? How are you going to follow that? You know, it's so this kind of chaos, and I don't recommend that, can you pray at home with your family, like one of you guys give the homeless and so we have four males, and then the house or neighbors? What I would like to remind each other the whole point is not to congregate
social distance. So please don't turn your homes to another prayer area. We encourage the people in the apartments next to you and that neighborhoods and we pray together, and we don't want this because we the whole point is the social distance I can I can't emphasize enough the importance of you know, self quarantine tibo or, you know, be disciplined in those things. I know it's boring, but that's what it is. Now. So that's number one. What if it What if it's family don't care what we have? Yeah. Yeah.
You know, I'm just
simply Muslim America. And that's the majority of the hot the shaft at the Hanbury hanafy did not make a message it is a condition for establishing solid.
Okay, but also remember those did not say we should have did not allow their time people to have Juma. Every family pray them by themselves in the houses. But they said we should pray together in the message of john madden. He talked about not multiple demand because they want people to gather. But I think in this circumstances, since I missed it is not a condition. Okay. Maybe people in urban space with a large distance from each other can pray together or in the backyard with their home. Like the there's a big family, you have a lot to pray jumaane according to the federal of Amgen, I'm not personally, I don't encourage that because I don't want this to be a door to be open later on.
We don't go to the massage and every five people at work. Just pray Dumont No need to ask the minister. I only allow this for people who can't go to the message, who it is very hard for them to go to the masjid. I allowed this for people like I remember I visited the Muslims and bowling in Seattle. It's like a whole community there. Okay, we can pray there. You know, in their workplace. There's 100 person in that building or in that factory. You can pray together they don't need to go to the masjid. They have their own Juma. But in this case, I prefer for you to pray a lot of the preacher man, there is a very strong argument to support that practice.
And so, this brings us to
should be I have an open
closing down the massage in front of the people. And there is no order from the government to do so and completely shut it down. I understand the logic behind it. But I think it's important for us also to remember that there is people have their heart attached to them aside. Sometimes people call me and talk to me
ask them, Do you regularly go to the mustard? Is it no pressure, my usual. And that's a problem when people will not actually attached to the mustard and coming regularly to the masjid didn't know, so many of our elders in our community member who can be devastated. And
really, it is very hard for some, for many people, it's very hard for me to tell me Don't come to the US. It's really very hard. So I think people, it's important also to understand that people are psychologically strong. But what I want, I want precautions to be taken, I want people to follow the rules, and they said, limited to 50, or limited to 20 are limited to 10. Follow that rules, even if you have multiple demands, or multiple group coming, as long as you take, if you can control it to understand, but we do our best, you know, we still go and congregate at number to certain extent, and banks and grocery stores and unpark and stuff like that we keeping the distance between each
other? Why can't we do that in depth, if the messages a lot and the size a lot. And that was leadership comes like I was talking to the man, Mr. Verizon, or people was not gonna listen to me? No, you didn't listen to you. Even if you have to bring, you know, an officer to limit the number and to say, people have to be disciplined. But I don't think it I don't think closing it down completely. Since there is no order. Is that something I will encourage unless you can control it. And you know what, I don't have enough manpower to volunteer to do that. I understand that this case.
Yeah, I definitely see that it's an issue of leadership. Because I mean, I remember a couple days ago, I prayed in a message, lighting went off, like I was practicing social distancing before everybody else, at least in that community. And I was. And this brings us to the next question, actually, which is praying and creating space between the Muslim League is that something that's legislated. Because people were still filling all the gaps, people were just coming and standing shoulder to shoulder and right next to you, right, and the mom prayed for maybe 20 minutes or so there wasn't that consideration. And these sensitivities and these guidelines that we've seen in
some of them, the fact that they actually were able to stay open, beyond
or up until today, even so, social distancing, in the flight itself, is that about six feet away from each other.
Obviously, standing away from each other on sonar is something against the norm. That's not how we line up, that's not how we're supposed to be in the line was supposed to come closer to each other. But if we can do that, because of health reasons, and because of the person can be either passed that virus to someone else, or take it from somewhere else, and that the recommended distance by doctors. And by the way, there is no even 100% about this six feet can be more can be less than that. But that's what the CDC for example, recommended and other health professional recommended so far.
For the United States, for those of you who aren't from the US, that's the Center for Disease Control.
be recommended that limit any gallery of 10 minutes and stuff of that nature. So we tried to do that. And that's where the telecoil comes after that, we take the about the the precautions that we have, then after that we basically depends on a Lost Planet and underlying animals. So yes, it is allowed in the circumstances to keep the distance because I do believe that this is better than canceling the Duma better than canceling this a lot better than not praying at all. Okay, and, and make this short, please don't read two pages under account and just saw the most all on the model. For sure. Now, making sure you want to make it long so operate by yourself, or pray in your ear and
make your driving McDonald's short. So let's run the time that they recommend for you.
And many also, people told me that if the salon is very short, like 234 minutes, for example, and you're not facing each other going straight, we can pray next to each other and that's what I practice them and I said so far, but when it comes to sit in before salon after salon and during Juma we keep a six feet distance. But if you do that in the salon as well, I don't see this invalidate your salon. And because that's if this is what it takes to have the salon. Yes, because they say oh,
well sure last but not so now you can do for loners and those are all these evidence telling us these principles should tell us that we can do whatever we capable off to be unfair to minimum. So part two, if I order you to do something, do your best. So a lot the
profits are just to come closer to each other. So the closest thing we can come to each other is six. That's what we are capable of right now. So that's why we do that.
The closest thing that I can do is feet, the feet shoulder to shoulder and have to explain a lot about that.
It's this is something that will lead to being impacted. That's not correct. You know? Talk about Allah Subhana Allah, this is not how it works. in Nairobi, Salalah Alayhi Salaam when image zoom came to give him back in Nairobi, so someone did not even let him enter Medina, he said, You stay outside the city of Medina, and someone else to speak on your he will take the bait on your behalf and that person has skin disease, you know, that's not correct. And Nepalese asylum is the
enemy. So someone said no to animals don't expose healthy person to some to someone who is sick?
And is he is the one who said that. So Allah
was asking about if someone in the city or someone in the city who have a disease that is contagious disease isn't allowed for the people of the city to put a quarantine on that person and not allow the person to come not allow the person to be lived in the city. Did you come out sensitive? He said yes.
So and that's understandable. So we said, there's no contradiction between the worker and taking the precautions. We're not saying that you're immune from the disease completely. No, you still can get the disease even with all these with all sanitizers that you've been using in the world, you still can get but but take what what you're capable of and leave the restaurant like that's, that's what bring calmness to the heart. I do my best and the rest are limitless. So whatever happened after that is the best for me.
Okay, so is there a way now with regards to the amounts of Juma is already a number of people have missed last week's Jamal, you missed the second or the third? Is there some sort of direct connecting a certain amount of
how many commands can a person Miss? Yes.
Those who miss three Juma as Allah sealed our hearts or the seal hypocrisy or, or something of that nature.
This Have you talked about people who miss it out of negligence? Like you they don't care, you know, but not about you shall I take the same every word of every time other than you take it, because you are not going to come up for a valid excuse. So it doesn't matter if it lasts for a year or so. It should be down higher. Because I was talking about many incidents where historically speaking,
a doula was not hot, the massage were abandoned for a while.
Because of place people used to die in large number.
There is no gathering of any form or shape. So that was my thought and make it easy for us. And hopefully, things will be back soon.
Shall we seen these viral videos of my dentist as well? I mentioned my dentist crying and we're hearing a phrase. We're so lucky to have you come
celebrate the Heineken play in your places. So what does that mean? And Is that allowed? When is it legislated?
Some of it had to come in a hottie Muslim some of you to come pray at your homes. It means that the more than well say either in the end of the day after said lilan like celebrity halochem or after say, hey, Al Salahi and Farah, he say some more theory haidakhan. Okay, and even some elements that don't say
that's not a very strong
evidence, or not very strong opinion. But after you say, hey, Alison, I have forgotten to say somebody's really hard if and
then after that, say or some of you to come pray at your home. That means don't come to them. And I'm telling everybody listening to me today, please, I advise you to reduce that. Reduce that that amount of interacting with people and that means pray at home and
pray at home as much and as many as you can.
If that helps, we are for example in that states and Canada in so many places, we need to flatten the curve of advice and that will not happen by congregating. Okay, so I ask everybody to be disciplined about this and to take the recommendations of their scars will lie nobody wants to see more people invested than us.
And it's very sad and very hard for me to say that today.
And please, anybody telling me Oh, we go to the mustard to make that make that home almost regardless.
Whatever you act
almost doesn't I'm not telling about the salon I'm telling you pray pray more.
But for gathering a
massage it does some massages still up to 300 people come on.
That's just what you all heard about what happened when the gathering in Malaysia for religious gathering that led to spiking the number of people who affected we don't want that.
You know, and also I have a message to my and I know maybe I don't have much listeners from the share community but there's a lot of people in the community and some civic community as well who like you know, keep saying that and I'm not talking about from a theological anything like that as much as right now. But I care about every person okay. There is no wellI there is no demand there is no dead there is no shrine going to protect you from the disease The only protects you from diseases Allah subhanaw taala through the means and the cautious that almost want to order us to take and the sooner philosopher data which means the rules that Allah put on earth medicines and listen to
doctors and specialists, you know, don't this is the time we should not pray to anyone other than a lot you should not pray to any center any righteous person or any dead person or any mom or any
individual This is the time where even kuffaar crush gotta correct
the operation the time calamity they break the alarm call center D
So please like this is it because they see like, and also all these things that people may not pay? You know what I saw the price on my dream and the process I'm told me and this is going viral these days. You know, the problem said, say this and business and you don't care about Coronavirus and Coronavirus. And
all of a sudden he's not a doctor, he didn't. I didn't send him to send the prescriptions for us. I will send him to guidance and analysis on him after he died is not a means of communication. He cannot legislate for us. He cannot come until you say this 103 times and this this number of times and you will be that's new legislations and there is no need to station like I said, to the convener almost went on, I said that today the Dean was completed.
If somebody said yes, but nobody saw someone was selling the dream and received the dream, you have seen him is not the shape or anything like that. And it really my answer to know him a lot. Many other stars said, Yeah, you maybe saw the process on the gym, and maybe that's him sauce on it. But there is nothing to tell you that the voice that you heard is the process of his voice. It can be the voice of the ship, or it can be the voice of to mislead you. And even kathira know, he
has talked about that before. It's not something new, that every time a calamity and a problem happened. Somebody said, I saw that wasn't my dream. And he told me pray this amount of work I'll do this amount of that can always be done and innovations that should be very careful from falling into these practices.
We want to go back to Allah and going back to a lot means going back to this Pure religion.
Going back to Allah means to practice and to worship Allah. Allah in a way pleases Him. That's what is the whole point
of this shake that allows the shaking that we are experiencing Allah shaking us to wake us up?
our next question, we're switching topics a little bit now.
Can we pray to our before we'll have time? Yeah, since people are asking me you know, the Hanafi the Maliki the Chavez Duma should not be prayed until the war time enter because certainly, the Allied said couldn't Assemblyman couldn't enter tomorrow and is it we used to preach them out of the process alone. It has added to shrimps when the sun moved from that middle of the sky, which means locked on start, but also the habit of him home a lot
have many evidence to support the opinion that it can be prayed before work. Okay, before a lot of time.
And one examples of Muslim jabil the alarm said, Can you help me can install this awesome Terminator, movie legend man in her head that is rulerships we used to pray before there's a while before the sun moved from the middle of the sky. So Jabba said we used to pray with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that before we will have turnstile and sad inside also for Buhari Muslim said Hadith that in the same in makueni an appeal wanna
eat lunch, take out
up in Friday until we pray Friday first and by the
table Allah said in Arabic language that means it took place definitely before
because that's what when they used to eat and used to take the nap. Okay.
So this an opinion of debate, Hamidullah, it's better and it's the most common practice of political solidarity prayer for both time. And and that's what we should try to do your long. But that's also we use for someone said we have exams.
My work would not allow me for lunch hour for circumstance I think this is the time where this opinion can bring ease and the kind of bring ease to us and such matter. So yes, it is allowed to start early in the day that say some people are quarantined after one o'clock or something like that. You can pray Dumont, if it's allowed to gather,
if you do multiple drama as well, yes. Well, that brings up the multiple Jamal Are you a supporter of just so for example, here in Texas, we've got nine or 10 amounts of tennis, the amount of people that we have a limit to that you do three or four or simply two, if a method has the resources in the community? Yeah, absolutely.
We're just entering and leaving at the same time doesn't contradict, there is no like,
like you keep a space between them. Yes. And you mentioned that it's
not it's not logical. I do believe one at least is logic to be done. But other than that, is the can work for them. Yeah.
And so moving on to the notion of, you know, from from the gym, because that person actually themselves with regards to the Coronavirus, and, you know, we just had our first cases
of someone passing away yesterday with these types of contagious diseases, and I was kind of that I have mercy on them. If, how do we deal with these with regards to the burial? is it's touching them as contagious? How do we do with the body washing the body of such a person, the burial of that person?
Especially in circumstances, even if I could add where the family might not have access to that individual anymore? Yeah, I watch a video actually of the brother who died in Malaysia, Masada, forgive him, and give some of this family and to all the families who have been losing the loved ones and are going through a hard time these days?
I would say it all depends on what the recommendation of the health experts say. So if you told us we're not allowed to touch, can we do gloves? Can we put, you know, protections like
mask and things of that nature? But yes, the dead person doesn't read to you and does a sneeze or cough. But any the sweat of the person can carry the disease, the urine, the feces can can have the disease?
There's no basically
no guarantee that they're contagious after death can
be contagious after death. So if you get the question will be, or the brother who work and sisters work in funeral homes in America, or to be trained for such thing.
That's something we should look into it after this problem that we should train our brother and sister work if you're a home how to do but I think they take some if they have license they are. It's a study for a couple of years or three years or something that to be certified. And part of the training that they do they actually train them how to deal with people with conditions, I'm not sure but I remember coming across something like that. But at least we should make sure that they are trained, and if they're trained, or the expert or the safe, always take in consideration. So if we got all this on hand,
and we can do that and handle it, and the place that we do it, it can be sanitized after that.
Yes, not. And that's the case I saw in Malaysia, for example. And other places as well. That would be do they give the body in the back. So if this is the case, if you do in the back at
in this case, is some of the thoughts if you do tm for the person, basically you put their hand on the on the sand, maybe your gloves and you put it on the
the hand in the face of the person after the diet inside the back if you want or I don't lean towards that opinion. I think in this case, you just take the back and you pray funeral on the person that allowed this to be done by people a lot. They don't even allow it
You wait until they are buried. And after they are buried, the family can go to the to the grave and prey on the persons after the person was buried.
If we reach to a level that we don't even allow you to go to the they bury them in a very different places are gonna have no access to it. You are the will burn
In this case, you just pray janaza alive, opposite to to nasm.
Yeah, knee protect us. I'm sure he has a very good video he posted in regard to this, I advise you to listen to it as well.
What an impermissible for them to burn the body.
To what would it be permissible for the family to allow the body to be burned? Or what would that like? That's what the health experts says yes.
So if we couldn't, if, if and, Jeff, you mentioned
something about health,
to like about like, many different opinions, whatever, it's the law of the countries that nobody is allowed, you can do anything about that. But if you say no to commendations, I advise you to consult multiple people and things like those old to go to reference, like in America, for example, we do have a lot of big Institute's that we know it's non political, it comes to issues like this, you know, institutes with big universities and research centers. So those are people that experts I will take their opinion and matter
in such matters.
So Shafi mentioned the notion of skeleton janazah of oxygen as if that person is buried in the family is able to go then wonderful and great, they're able to go to the actual grave and pay over that person. But especially in these types of circumstances, you're gonna find a lot of people who have incredible relationships with this individual who are not able to go to the grave, is it allowed for them to them? And why are we allowed this community to get them up and viable for individuals? How does that work? I don't believe so. Like alive is allowed to be done for someone, somebody already offers some attention as on that person. So there's a family member office
autogenous on that person, doctors and hospitals, or whoever, like listen boxes did offer that.
In this case, there is no selected agenda on the person. So for those of you who don't know, it's pairing, essentially. So it's when you pray a follow up engine as over a person without being there.
The question will be what if they never prayed janazah on him until he was buried?
Yeah. So after he was buried, and then some people went to pray janazah on him after his prayer, can other people in other places make genomics auto selection journals on them? Because, you know,
technically no psychogenic? Because a lot of janaza should take
salami technically should take place before what? Before the burial? Well,
yeah, so but after the burial came, the janazah be done multiple times. Yes. can be done in absence, I do believe I will link towards Yes, this is the case. If we never prayed on him before burial. There's multiple places multiple people family member can pray even especially the circumcised, maybe not allowed to go to that funeral are allowed to go to the senator. So they can print your eyes on Him in their homes, even multiple ones in multiple different homes, like uncle, for example, has many cousins or many brothers in different places we can have to be done collectively or can it be done individually? Both can be done. So to janazah doesn't need to be in the congregation. Okay,
great. Yeah, cool. Okay, so chef wearing a nine and nine five mask is required for wearing the mask. The n 95 masks is required for a lot of people who are in the health field to do their work, whether it's
nurses, whether it's doctors, and wearing it requires shaving the beard, is it a lot for them to shave?
You know, I posted this on my Facebook before and they found out
a lot of people told me it's not necessarily to show the various beards and people in health care told me that today you wear this mask, but it looks like there's a different type of mask. So if the mask that you have in your hospital, it is mandatory for you to shave the beard completely
to protect yourself and to do your job. But ask first, maybe you're allowed to trim it to be trimmed to the minimum. And if this is the case, you keep the minimum of the beard See, we just don't
Go to the shaving completely. But we asked him this is can be, can I trim it to the minimum? Can I just keep part of it? and so forth. Why? Because
if I have to do something because of necessity, this necessity, I have to do it according to the need.
Like, for example, if somebody's about to die, okay, and the only thing he has, you know, wine and pork.
Then he ate some from the meat of the pork, just to survive. He can say, okay, since I just fall to the glass of wine, just make it a full dinner. He can do that. You're not allowed to touch the wine. You see, I'm saying because
you only need me get stuck shift. Let me get stuck in his throat. That's case.
Because I do believe shaving the beard is.
So this is one of the most interesting. I believe that's the opinion of that before my dad happened to hold on to my heels. Keshavan completely, is not a lot.
That's what the profits are some of them. Yeah. And he clearly stated in ordering us to have a beer. Yes.
So we've experienced, you know, just incredible demand for a toilet paper that we've never seen before in our lives. And it's become incredibly rare. You've seen all the memes and the photos and the jokes. With toilet paper that rare is it allowed for a person to make a stingy with just one sheet so that they're not using toilet paper and saving as much as they can.
As long as there's an up as long as there is removal of the adjuster, it is a lot. So I don't believe that you need three i don't i don't believe that anything that we saw that when he said that the three stones or it means the number meant it means just to make sure that you're completely clean. That's what I said, if you have a stone and have three feet, three sides.
Yeah, and you can use the three sides to clean yourself.
And so if one is enough, one is enough. And also I want to say that we as Muslims, one of the great things that we have, we have some of the costs in Java, which is awesome. And
it's part of the Federal that using water. You know, that's the day when it comes to the benefit of having that and having that you know?
people have many different ways of using water inside the bathrooms, you know, the thing that you use for watering the plant, you know, container, basically having it to use it to clean yourself. That should be enough. In many places on the world by the way don't know what's toilet paper means. Just for you guys to know I you know my kids joke a laugh at me and I don't know if I should say that or not. But the kids love me and told him like I grew up in a place in a time that we don't know what's 12 I don't know what's toilet paper is like in my youth, my, you know, teenagers, I never in my life know what that is. I've never seen it in my life and in the house. But I know. You
know, we just use water. Oh, like, this is how we grew up. And by the way, I'm not like eight years old or some person came from Jurassic Park or something like that. Now, I'm still relatively young, but just it's a different world when it comes to the Western world. Okay, so yes, you can survive with it, but just make sure that you clean your hand. I'm glad that you don't shake hands these days. But
that's a great point. So but that brings up a couple of questions as well which is number one when you say until it is clean. What does that mean? As far as the toilet paper goes?
number for example. There's no drop, there's no color anymore.
So when you let's say you have one sheet, you have one sheet, okay let me get you
well, you know your is going to be the easy one. So, okay. So you have one to show like this, you just can fold it so it will not go through it and like that. And you just do from one side then you can fold it into another side. And so and also in when it comes to the filth, you know if people are different in the way that they basically
based on the
thought that comes out of the body, so you do your best and use the water then you can use that if
You want Guinea, you just do your best. My point is you don't need to have three different if you can clean yourself. That's enough. And by the way, when it comes to the filth, it means that the actual feces is completely nothing attached to it. And when you wipe it is clean, you know? Okay, so Okay. And by the way, Chef, what it has a really extensive series on bahala that you can check out on YouTube, his explanation of global muram. And this has been a series that's been going on for the past, I want to say three years, maybe even four.
And so from Shahada to Salah to right now he's doing the book of etiquettes, you'll find all of that as well as CRM as well as Chile to do I'm Ron Hatcher. Not yet. Okay, yeah. So all of this you'll find on YouTube, just look up chef, what eats channel, it's incredibly extensive. So you'll find a lot more there. We don't have much more time, we've got three minutes left. So we'll mock out whatever questions we can for those of you who have been typing in questions, is optimal ahead. We're going to, I knew that this fifth series was going to continue to grow because the questions are going to keep coming in. And we're going to slate more of our Misha as well as shawlette data to
answer more of these questions and shall over the next couple of days as well. So
chef is using hand sanitizers held on which contains alcohol. No, it's not. That's not the humble. So it is a lot for you to use.
Is it allowed for doctors and first responders to miss Juma and the obligatory prayers? If they are at work, and don't call? Yes.
It's like police officers and to have checkpoints.
Ramadan is coming up if this extends, is it allowed for a person to not fast due to fasting lowering a person's immune system if they fear catching the virus?
This is something you need to talk to your doctor, Muslim doctor a person understand the value of religion that if you have some type of deficiency, and you need this kind of supplement, yes, but otherwise, you know, we all you know fast and doesn't mean your immune system dropped tremendously because of that.
So unless the doctor tell you so no, you have to fast
is it a lot some of our elderly, of course we know are much more at risk with regards to this Coronavirus. And it's much more lethal for them and dangerous for them, is it allowed for them to reject medication in this time.
Outside This is taking a medication is a debate between the scholars and the ruling that I follow when it comes to medication. If you are in a hopeless case, the case would have been as doesn't really make any difference anymore. In this case, the medicine is permissible. That's why I will back up with the Alon didn't take the medicine when he reached a point to when he said death coming in many of the setup said that did
somebody let's say you have a cancer and a very advanced cancer males make it easy for everybody. And you know what medicine is not really going to work, maybe delayed, maybe, you know, reduce the pain, it's permissible to do that, but it's not obligated to do that.
Somebody in you know, and let's say,
you know, like life support. Doctor says reversible situation, it's permissible to keep giving the medicine to the person
to keep him alive. And it's permissible to lead to remove it is another type of medicine, which is if you take it, you're cured and you can, and this met this sickness preventing you from doing obligations. So if you're going to be sick, and you will not be able to pray, you're not gonna be able to fast no taking medication in this case became wanting to do a by the law.
And maybe some of them said use medicine or servants of the law, but don't use something hot. So in this case, I would say yes, you must take that medication. If this sickness doesn't really
impact you to leave logic, medications, not much is permissible. I have a very bad headache. But you know what, I have a virus, I don't want to take the antibiotic. I don't want to take that I want my my body function to fight it. So on a ticket course and goes away, I don't want to take a Tylenol. I don't want to take an Advil. So in this case, we're taking panels with logic. Yes. And nobody will say that it's permissible taking the
the course of antibiotics is not logic because still you can function and you can do whatever you want. So that's will be the distinguished
zakarpattia So last question, is it and this is a
people are I mean, it's
The economy has been completely shaken up, a lot of people have lost a lot of money. A lot of people are staying home they're not working is it allowed for them to take interest based loans to keep themselves afloat? Number two, to keep their businesses afloat.
And number three, is it allowed for them to take out credit cards for the purpose of, of and not paying their credit card balances, for the purpose of
basically fear of what's coming up.
Let me start with the last one, which is the credit card, don't pay them the balance, just pay the minimum, so you don't get interest and penalty. You know, and that's number one. Number two, if you don't have money to pay it, and that's the only way to survive. And that's the way to keep your business or your
livelihood to do i do believe in this circumstances, you are allowed to do that to use a credit card even if it has interest in it or take a loan with interest. And
if this only means left for you to really survive, and not to lose, let's say somebody has a business that will completely collapse. But be careful, because sometimes taking long at this time, can be also trapped. You lose more by taking putting yourself in more problems. But I know many governments are giving now breaks and solutions, I will advise you first to look into other options. Keep that as the last option. And many people also be asking me if it's okay for them to delays a cat
for that purpose as well. Yes, it does allow you to delete this account if you don't have cash, or you're very short in cash. But I want to remind you also that to giving this a cap on solidifying such time is very important. Let me end with us. That this is the time where one of the reason, one of the reason that we encourage people to give sonica in this time, if you have noticed, I'll give you because we know that the punishments and we worry i'm not saying I can't talk and be helpful. I'm not this agent here to speak on His behalf. But one thing that worries us that what we see today is the result of anger at us. And nothing can take a lot of anger.
And people like that in the subtle pattern. What can I eat for you and mountain now, in Derbyshire, someone said charity takeaway was anger the same way water will take away fire. That's why no payment from the law said anytime there is a calamity anytime that is something struck us anything. Anytime there is a disaster happen. One of the most important thing for people to do is to do what is to make their app make Toba and to get set up and to give charity. So that's why I highly recommend each and every one of you to reach out to the people around you. To the Muslim organizations. If people need financial support, people need help. I want you to remember when
people deliver food to your people to your door, even though delivery is free by all most restaurants, you know what tip these guys who are giving you bringing you the food and still taking the risk of going around tip them well, because they lost their job. You know, especially here in America, people work have a lot of like restaurants and places like this. It's hard when a businessman told me that I have to shut down my business, layoff 95% of my employees. It's not easy.
You know, it's not easy for so many even religious leaders I know loss of jobs and source of income, no lectures, no classes. No, we're in a lot of insecurity know that we are going through a tough time as well. It's not easy. It wasn't for the last five data then people like yourself will extend their hands to help our Institute's to keep going. I don't know how we're gonna go.
You know, and keep keep keep that these homes and employees houses. It's hard. It's not easy, not only the one, not easy for the massage to we're not going to have people coming to,
to the master to pay the rent to pay the payments to pay the
amounts and amounts now get laid off. Can you imagine mustard laid off the ring up and give them vacations without pay? You know, it just taught for so many people. So if you someone who has a lot, blushing, maybe you have a grocery store or something like that, or you are you know, you've been selling making sanitizers
one of these things that making a lot of money and income come to light these days. And Allah bless you as well. You know, please make sure that you reach out to those who are neat, and those around you. I'm proud of so many organization who do that. Let me call me one of our sponsors. They put hundreds of 1000s of dollars
into charity work. I'm very proud of it no relief in my city and around the countries around the country here.
been watching a great job that you do many, many organizations. I'm proud of our massages in our kitchens to
very proud of a motor team that structures, staff, students verbenas, asking every day How can you help people organize without organizing classes, but we can organize food drive, we can organize this, we can help first responder in different cities. And I advise everyone who listened to her on a modem says reach out to the organization on the ground, help them volunteer with them, and proud of them to have classes for instructors to give me the opportunity to be connected with you today. And Shall I will show you another event another session as well. And that's very special event will be about bone loss and lessons from it. And it's an amazing experience. So, in the end, I just want
to say that Thank you all and don't forget, ask yourself, did you start praying more? Did you start reading the Quran more? Did you start making longer stitute did you start to care for the account that is the best form of protection
to just start reviewing your life and less need to be changing your life to just start making some changes in your life? If not do because that's the whole point of what we're going through these days. yada yada
