And we are studying the last chapter of the book called a jam in the collections. And this is a collection of different topics and important subjects mainly related to etiquette, and morality and social interactions, and also spirituality. And the new chapter that we'll be studying shalaka is about a zoo. And I name it minimalism, which is focus on

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

how can you

00:01:21--> 00:02:14

even though when you have less, you can have more, even though when you understand the difference between quantity and quality, have never meant that less and quality, but usually many means less than quantity. It means that you take what you need and you don't take over what you need. It means that you not to connect your heart to the dunya as much as you connect your heart to the art Mira. This chapter is about a zoo. Well, what is it called a zoo door Wiseman has offered him a lock collar, and he put them together and it's very unique combination because they both goes hand to hand as zoo in Arabic language means at Illumina shape the word zooids zawada and Arabic language,

00:02:14--> 00:02:21

it means when you have less minimalism, and you have the minimum, you reduce, so

00:02:22--> 00:02:44

a setup for him at home a lot. I have defined hazard in many different ways. And there's many different definition definitions for the word zoo. And one of the most common definition for a zoo which is I would like to share with you tonight is as Zoo teracle harem

00:02:45--> 00:02:53

to avoid what is how long so minimalism or observed it means is to leave what is hot

00:02:54--> 00:03:05

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

So you trust the last month Allah Moria and your self

00:03:16--> 00:04:07

some other scholar Pato zoo, who another in a dunia behind his wife, Leah solara Kelly is always to remember a zoo that means you always remember that this life is short and temporary and will come to an end soon. So this is the if this is that's what it is that under that feeling, that understanding and if you have that you will find yourself you know less attached to it. And you are ready to depart from it to the next one. Also was said what was awful lb and it dounia Bella tackle. It's when your heart and be not attached to this worldly life without any exaggeration.

00:04:11--> 00:04:35

Yeah, and it means that your heart focus and attach on the things that will benefit you in the arsenal and will not be attached in this to things in this life, that it will not benefit you in the end. And we see from ourselves that we are so attached to so many hobbies and desires and things in this life.

00:04:36--> 00:04:44

materialistic things in this life and entertainment, different types of entertainment and joys

00:04:45--> 00:04:57

in this life that not necessarily will help it will help us in the air. And here I'm not talking about the heart I'm only talking about the things that is even lawful but will not benefit you in the UK.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

So the citizens

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

is when your heart not attached to these things.

00:05:05--> 00:05:32

So, that means you avoid the how long because of how long will not help you in the era and you also the dislike things the Makoto heart and also you know attached to the prince permissible things are mobile heart as well. And that means you will not be attached to any of these things. So, and because of your heart not attached to it, you will not be talking much about it, you will not be doing much of it

00:05:34--> 00:05:44

and you will not and you will have an attitude that it always drives me towards the alpha or not to the duty drives you up, not down.

00:05:46--> 00:06:35

That's why shifting Islam Rahim Allah said, as zuid even taymiyah said, Xu, taka rahmati female is awful after that you have no interest in what will not benefit you in the appeal. You might have it but you're attacked, your heart is not interested in it. And you looking forward for it. And you search for it. And when they talk about the law, the said when people talk about worldly things he was never ever seen ever in his life. Getting excited and asking too many questions about it or anything like that. The one time they heard him talk about something related to this worldly life. Somebody mentioned something about a master dealt with constructed in a very unique way. Then he

00:06:35--> 00:06:48

asked how it was constructed and what type of materials It was built with. They said that's the only thing we heard was related to worldly matters. And even that one was related to a mess it was built.

00:06:50--> 00:07:06

Remember Hamad Rahim Allah once was asked akun Raja Luiza hidden we're in the alpha Dena if I have 1000 dinar pieces of gold. Can that person who possessed that large amount of money? Be Azad be an ascetic?

00:07:07--> 00:07:08

Carla in Canada, if

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

he does that, what is an either an apostle,

00:07:13--> 00:07:18

if that person wouldn't get very hobby if it if it become

00:07:19--> 00:07:26

increased, nor he will be sad if decrease in another word, his heart not attached to the money.

00:07:28--> 00:07:52

Either is that aside, and as you see, that's not an easy thing. That's a level it is hard. It's not for it is not for something that necessarily you might have it for a short period of time. You might have it towards certain things in your life. But can you imagine to have this all the time for everything?

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

That's hard.

00:07:56--> 00:08:01

That's as hard are few. This is a very high level.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

This is a very high level in religiosity,

00:08:06--> 00:08:14

my euro wasabi rune those have a great deal of patient of Saba also one who achieved that

00:08:15--> 00:08:33

and one which is the other word, that it has available, you used to give us a terrible chapter on what it means to abstain from something. So as it is to reduce and what is to abstain is to leave

00:08:34--> 00:08:40

and in Sharia law is to avoid the doubtful matters.

00:08:42--> 00:08:54

Sophia is so dear to him. Allah said something so clear and so simple. Simple. What is that? Is it anything that you doubtful about leave it mahak if it's something like for truck.

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

That's why one of the early

00:09:00--> 00:09:23

scholars said lab mobile app to happier kata taqwa you will not achieve the true meaning of taqwa the true meaning of a taco until you leave and tetrick malaba sabay has an army maybe he does that you leave what you know.

00:09:24--> 00:09:30

Nothing wrong in it because it might lead you to something wrong.

00:09:31--> 00:09:38

So I know this is how long and how long, but I leave it because it can open the door for me to fall into something hot.

00:09:40--> 00:09:49

So in another word, had been Timmy Rahim. Allah has a nice way to put it. He said a zoo is to avoid

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

what will not benefit you in the

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

butt awara is to avoid what will harm you in the

00:10:02--> 00:10:12

So, the first one to avoid which will not benefit you in the in the next life and the hereafter, but Allah is to avoid what might harm you in the hereafter

00:10:14--> 00:10:19

and what are is based on knowledge

00:10:21--> 00:10:43

based on knowledge, the knowledge of what the best of the tools and more evil So, you avoid a war is to avoid what is more evil and what is to care for what's more rewarding and what to avoid what can be doubtful

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

okay observed and awara these two words

00:10:50--> 00:11:08

they have nothing to do with the rules of Sharia which is categorized as obligations or recommendations, anything the Sharia obligated obligate us to do or recommend us to do? So, if it is

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

obligatory

00:11:13--> 00:11:34

upon us or it is recommended upon us there is New Zealand there is no aura nobody said well I have what am I going to pray for today you know what I'm going to have observed has no need for praying center reduce the model salaat No. And what are and as a result has nothing to do with Word Swag and what is Mr hot

00:11:35--> 00:11:55

but it has to do with what is haram and what to avoid the harm or what are observed is to avoid the harm and what is to avoid the dislike as it is to avoid and not to be attached and interested in what things that is dislike are not recommended. Also a MOBA heart What is permissible

00:11:56--> 00:12:01

zone it is to avoid and what is to leave it

00:12:07--> 00:12:21

as for sorry, as it is to avoid that premise bubbles. But there is no one that has to do with premise bubbles. Nobody can say you know what I will have water so I'm not gonna eat no

00:12:22--> 00:12:36

not drink cold water because of tewara you know what i what I'm going to avoid is how long I'm not going to drink any more soda because it might be how long no that's not a lot. But

00:12:38--> 00:12:53

you know what, I don't want to be attached and addicted to caffeine and addicted to things of that nature. You know, I want to be you know to reduce the amount of wasting my money and spending money on things like outside eating restaurants and stuff like that. It's

00:12:54--> 00:13:01

not a law you know, I'm not gonna buy a fancy car but there is no law. Well, I am afraid that Ken's

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

you know, these fancy cars Hold on. No, there's no one and what is not related to permissible

00:13:10--> 00:13:14

as Zod is related to permissible things in Islam mobile heart.

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

So, remember a zealot is to leave what will love benefit you? And what is to leave what you think it is harmful

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

for you in the NFL.

00:13:29--> 00:13:46

That's why if this is clear, you will understand that zone is what is higher level than a war zone hazard is higher level than water because this is to avoid what will harm you but also you avoid what will not benefit you. That's a higher level.

00:13:47--> 00:13:57

Now let's start with that first heading. And in many many children are the Allahu anhu marcada semitone Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he

00:13:59--> 00:14:04

was a one man will be osebo ie la when a hacker

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

in LA coolie him liquidity Mexican Hema at our in him Allah Maha demo at our NFL just at the mobile either solid, solid had adjusted to kulu or either faster that faster than just a Dooku Allah he'll definitely

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

remember nimmanhaemin mushiya are they allowed may Allah be pleased with him and his father said I heard a LA's messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

He said what I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, then man pointed his two fingers to his ears.

00:15:09--> 00:15:20

You know, like I heard, so he's saying, I heard with my ear the prophets of Allah Allah you it was settlers saying both lawful

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

and unlawful things

00:15:24--> 00:15:32

are clear evidence. But in between them, there are doubtful things.

00:15:33--> 00:15:44

Most people have no knowledge about them, and you have no knowledge about these doubtful matters. What's the real ruling in regard to is it

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

allowed or not allowed?

00:15:47--> 00:15:59

So he who saves himself from these doubtful things, saves his religion and his honor. And he keeps them blameless

00:16:00--> 00:16:23

and he who indulge in these doubtful things is like a shepherd who pastures his animals kneel the Hey man, what's up man? Hey, man, it's a private pastures or private area, a designated area, a private property, okay.

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

of someone else. And at any moment, he is labeled to get in it.

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

Oh people be aware.

00:16:35--> 00:16:46

Every King has Haman has this private protected, you know, grassland for his cattle.

00:16:48--> 00:17:00

Every King has him in this protected area. And the Hema of Allah on this earth is what he declared unlawful, however,

00:17:03--> 00:17:06

don't fall into it, don't cross the line.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

To

00:17:09--> 00:17:13

be aware in the body, there is a piece of flesh.

00:17:14--> 00:17:20

If it becomes sound unhealthy, the whole body becomes sound unhealthy.

00:17:21--> 00:17:28

But if it gets corrupt, spoil, the whole body gets spoiled and corrupt.

00:17:29--> 00:17:39

And that is the heart with DEF CON LA agreed upon reported by Buhari Muslim both agreed to report it from the shuttle the alarm.

00:17:40--> 00:17:49

This Hadith is very clear related to the chapter talking about how to avoid the doubtful matters, right.

00:17:50--> 00:17:59

And the relationship between Elora and reserved is clear. Because a zoo is when your heart not attached to the dunya.

00:18:00--> 00:18:28

And when your heart not attached to this worldly life, it became easy for you to avoid the doubtful matters. The reason for people to do the doubtful matters because they want to fulfill their desires, because they're so attracted to the dunya. So, whenever you learn how to avoid the dunya in your heart attached to the alcohol became so easy for you to have to avoid the things that you know it is doubtful and harmful could be harmful.

00:18:30--> 00:18:35

As well as you heard earlier me saying is to avoid what is heroin

00:18:36--> 00:18:42

and to leave what will not benefit you and obviously to leave what will might harm you

00:18:43--> 00:18:43

as well.

00:18:44--> 00:18:56

And this head is clear headed is talking about to avoid the thing that it will not benefit you and it might even harm you in the affair which is these doubtful matters.

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

And also talking about the hairy talk about the

00:19:02--> 00:19:49

the corruptions of the heart and the soundness of the heart. And that's where the whole entire concept of Zook comes from. observed is is is is one of the actions of the heart is not how you dress is not how, what you write necessarily. It is what's in your heart. There are so many people they have nothing and they have not much of the dunya but their hearts so attached to it. And there is so many people who have much less in this dunya but guess what? Their hearts somewhere in the middle and you look at Ramadan, Abubakar or the Allah and they were a businessman. amount of narrow mindedness. These were rich companions.

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

But guess what their hearts was. They were hard attached to the enemies of Solomon at one point you will have a lot of money and He will give it all

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Because his heart never was attached to it to the dunya and to the wealth of this life, Salah Loulou it was said,

00:20:08--> 00:20:08

and

00:20:10--> 00:20:26

this hadith reported by Buhari Muslim and agreed upon from Mr. Mahir and you see, this is a very authentic Heidi and then region that have been mentioned here is the integration of Muslim or himolla Muslim have an addition.

00:20:27--> 00:20:33

Other than in Buhari, which is, he said that a man pointed with his two fingers to his ear.

00:20:34--> 00:20:46

What that means, what's the benefit of a nomadic Miss, you're saying that you know, it is in Muslim Rahim Allah put that particular narration in this way.

00:20:48--> 00:21:36

And that's the thing that makes a Muslim is very unique and give it an advantage sometimes over Buhari the way he narrated the Hadith and collect the narrations. Because this extra information shows us that man heard it directly from the prophets of Allah. Because sometimes the Sahaba of the law will say the process of him said that but not necessarily that they themselves witness it. They themselves, heard it or sell the process on them. Many times even a boss will tell us about things happen in Mecca, happened in before hitron admin Ambassador the ally and even wasn't born at that time. But he heard that from other companions. And that would be absolutely acceptable and

00:21:36--> 00:21:57

absolutely authentic. Because also How about equally trustworthy? But here when Malaysia said that we know that he himself heard from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I'm saying this because some of the scholars have had either like a whopping Rahim Allah denied that

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

Mary mushy or heard anything from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because Michelle was eight years old when the prophets of Salaam died.

00:22:09--> 00:22:32

So that means what that means that this hadith among the latest narrations of the Hadith that in Ibiza solemn, said, and one of the advisors that the person gave right before his death, because if he said I heard that was my ear, and an ohmmeter was eight years when

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam died. That means individual Salam said that a year or

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

two before he died getting the man was about seven or eight years old, when you heard that to remember this heavy

00:22:50--> 00:23:09

so it means it's one of the latest things that are one of that advisors that are solemn give in the end of his life sallallahu wasallam which should give it even more value, it means that is one of them come at one of the Macan rulings and

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

advises never abrogated.

00:23:15--> 00:23:48

no exception was made to it. It's clear it's important and older than me so solemn want to leave it behind him right before he died. So a lot of you it was he said, binomo Moodle mush to be had in between the heroin, heroin, things which are mush, Debbie hat. Okay. mush Tabby hat. Also, it could be said, No, should be hacked. So you have mush, Debbie hat must be hat and this duration chemistry. Muslim

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

must be hat. Yeah, and it's not clear. Okay.

00:23:55--> 00:24:07

Mr. B had the same concept, not clear where you have evidence that give different conclusion. So this matter, there is evidence to support

00:24:08--> 00:24:19

the idea that this thing is hot. But you look at from another prospective move another evidence support that this thing's is hot. So you didn't know is it allowed or not allowed?

00:24:20--> 00:24:24

Is it good or bad? It kind of confused to understand it.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

In this case, that's where the problems are avoided. That's what is a

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

lie Allah Muna. Cassio meanness, by any No, not many people know, the ruling and regard to these issues. Only few people know the rulings the attention. It doesn't mean that I'm not most of the people don't know that they are doubtful matters know that people know that they are doubtful matters. But most of the people don't know

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

The rulings are the correct understanding of it the correct ruling related to it.

00:25:07--> 00:25:19

So in nebby, Salam Khan, whoever avoided is tarboro Allah de wireway that person who avoid this matter while save and protect

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

is tabora mineral Bara any thought protect

00:25:25--> 00:25:31

okay? protect himself free himself from falling into something wrong

00:25:34--> 00:25:38

Dini protect his Dean has faith and he man

00:25:39--> 00:25:53

and herb his honor. Why? Because people will not talk about you will not say bad things about you. For example, there is certain type of drinks. Okay.

00:25:54--> 00:26:03

They will debate among the scholars about it, if it is lawful or unlawful. Is it Hello, audience consider Hummer.

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

And it can be

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

a borderline.

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

So if someone didn't care and start consuming this,

00:26:14--> 00:27:05

other people might see him drinking it, smell it from him. And they would say, Oh my God, this guy drunk. This guy, you know, he drinks this guy, he does this or that, you know, he's not good. He's faster, he's alcoholic. You don't want that. So you want to protect your honor. So falling into this harm could lead that people say bad things about you and accusing you of things, which is not necessarily to be true. So in the business side, avoid these things. So you protect your honor, you protect your deen as well feminie Taka avoid, and it took what it means taking protection, you avoided you completely avoided. You just avoided it Tucker is a stronger than the word avoid. It is

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

a stronger than the word

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

attacked.

00:27:11--> 00:27:15

It means you carefully protect yourself.

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

tactically, you very tactful, tactful,

00:27:21--> 00:27:30

you're very careful. You, you plan, you worry about it. And that's why you protect yourself from it.

00:27:32--> 00:27:32

It

00:27:33--> 00:27:34

is a beautiful word.

00:27:37--> 00:27:46

You protect yourself carefully from this dot format, then he sits awesome. And those who don't

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

work are often held on work or

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

those who fall into these doubtful matters will fall into the hot tub. And I love this word work on fall.

00:28:01--> 00:28:38

It's a beautiful way of saying it fall in it. And the word fall it means that you folly you go down and you don't rise by doing that doubtful matter to do our support with them what an hybond it gives a negative no connotation to the relation to the person who do that, that he fall down, he fall off. He basically going down with these 10 sins and these matters. Instead of rising and going up and high.

00:28:40--> 00:29:03

Also falling. It means like you go deep into it, it gives you a good a lot of good meanings, this word. So whenever you get into the habit of falling into this doubtful matter and you don't care you just fall fall in it, you will fall into the hot arm without you realizing because usually when you fall, you have no control.

00:29:04--> 00:29:11

You know when you jump when you fall from a cliff down, usually don't guarantee that you will fall in this particular spot.

00:29:12--> 00:29:22

So what happened when you start doing these dogs for matter, you're falling you can control yourself and you will find yourself doing the harm and you might you find yourself doing even the Cabal or the major sense

00:29:24--> 00:29:50

then in the abuse of some given example, to make it something that you can visualize, and he gave an example of something very relevant to the people that he was talking to which is the companions at that time telling them because they are very familiar with the concept of Hema and the concept of shepherd who take their herds outside to feed them.

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

There will be an areas of protected area and these Protected Area owned usually by people you

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

Julie kings, head of tribes, powerful family, and they basically have it protected, and nobody can bring their herds or sheep or cattle to it. So that's why it's always green The grass is good.

00:30:17--> 00:30:26

So, here, if you bring your herd in the sheep, and the goats and cattle

00:30:27--> 00:30:39

around that area, which is designated a protected area, and there is no fence, it just known that this area belonged to Sansa. And you let your herds are under what will happen.

00:30:41--> 00:30:58

The herd actually, because they don't understand the concept of this protecting land this belong to this person not belong to that person, they don't know what they will do, they will be attracted by the water and the greenery of the grass and how healthy grasses and you will find yourself your herds start eating from there.

00:31:01--> 00:31:10

What happened in the old days, if you cross the line of somebody King, and you start your herd eating from somebody else lands protected land,

00:31:11--> 00:31:13

the kill the animal,

00:31:14--> 00:31:18

they shoot them and they kill them, they will be destroyed.

00:31:21--> 00:31:39

And here the example when you start going to the doubt for matter, and you fall into heroin, what happened, you destroy yourself because you go to hell fire like these animals destroyed themselves by going and eating from that protected area that belonged to the king.

00:31:40--> 00:31:49

As this animal slaughter, you basically you lead yourself to its destruction in the alpha by going to the Hellfire because you fall into the hot.

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

So

00:31:54--> 00:32:04

then in Ibiza, someone talked about something in the end of the Hadeeth warning people and paying people making people to pay attention to the heart.

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

The soundness of the heart

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

is so important. And the corruption of the heart is so dangerous.

00:32:14--> 00:32:17

And your heart is the base for your action.

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

And it's interesting and maybe someone brought this because really

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

the person who because it's easy for you to say, Oh, it's not dark for matter, it's clear to me.

00:32:28--> 00:32:33

The only one knows about this as a law and also your heart.

00:32:34--> 00:32:40

Your you know from inside of this is doubtful matter to you or not, you know in your heart of this hollow heart.

00:32:41--> 00:33:05

So it all starts from here. That what will prevent you from crossing that line and falling into the heart and falling into the doubtful that need a great deal of well a great deal of sincerity, a great deal of attaching to the love for a lot more than the love for the dunya patient trust

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

putting your trust and you depend on a Lost Planet on

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

and all this comes from this heart.

00:33:15--> 00:33:19

The more your heart sound, the more your actions will be some

00:33:20--> 00:33:27

the more your heart is corrupt and weak and sick, the weaker your actions will be

00:33:29--> 00:33:34

and the slower and the farther you are from an agenda and from a loss Peridot

00:33:36--> 00:33:36

model

00:33:38--> 00:33:45

the word Moodle is like the food that you chew you know piece of flesh, which is the heart this muscle

00:33:48--> 00:33:48

some solid,

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

solid sorry

00:33:54--> 00:34:01

in the head but also you can read it solo hat. You can say solid hat Obama or solid hat with fat

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

but

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

with fat is more

00:34:08--> 00:34:20

accurate or not accurate of sizing and it's much better, more eloquent or much better. And the Salah is the opposite of a facade corruption.

00:34:22--> 00:34:25

Let's see what can we what are the

00:34:27--> 00:34:49

benefits and lessons from this honey? Number one, I remember him a lot. I agreed that this is one of the greatest ahaadeeth in Islam. As a matter of fact, that Rahim Allah said the whole entire religion of Islam is based on 30 Hadith. This is one of them. The first edit in the Medina will be NEFT. These are based on tension. And the second one

00:34:51--> 00:34:51

in

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

those whoever invented matters not from the religion is not from it and he said this is the third one and how

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

debate

00:35:02--> 00:35:06

and some aroma like Buddha would offer him a whole lot

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

said no.

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

there for a hadith and Islam is based on it

00:35:15--> 00:35:23

for a Hadith, the three that I mentioned and the added mean has the stamina Taku, taco Matta, Yanni, it is from the good, the good.

00:35:26--> 00:35:34

The good amount of the person, that the person will avoid the matter that is not of his concern.

00:35:35--> 00:36:01

And some said no, it is a lightning, I had to combat that you hit belly FEMA, good enough center love for your brother, what you love for yourself. Regardless, it is one of three, one or four most important Hadith in Islam. So I'm glad that we get a chance to comment on it. And it's one of the Hadith didn't even know Rahim Allah mentioned, as the Hadith of the principles of Islam, the 40 Hadith to choose, as the most important 40 Hadith in Islam.

00:36:04--> 00:36:09

Also, from this hadith we learn that the truth will always be recognized.

00:36:11--> 00:36:43

That's why in themselves suddenly not many people now that doubtful matter, the ruling of the data, but there will be always people know, the ruling in regard to these doubtful matters. So there is nothing in Sharia on Islam would be completely not known to people, there will be always there is a scholar, even there are a few who will understand it and who will know that rules of law Sanatana in regard to this matter, I will say that the right will come to right arrive to the right conclusion.

00:36:44--> 00:37:00

The issue of the shadow, the issue of doubt doubtful, this being a doubtful matter. It's a it's a relevant issue. So it can be doubtful to someone, and not doubtful to other.

00:37:01--> 00:37:04

It can be doubtful to this person, but not doubtful to me.

00:37:05--> 00:37:30

And it gives you an example a real example life. I have some of my colleagues and friends who are very doubtful about the issue of eating from the meat in the public market in the West, or the United States. Can I eat just meat from the stores or from Wendy's? Or

00:37:32--> 00:37:51

no fast food? Or chick fil a or whatever? You know, not making advertising for anybody here? But can I eat just from the public? places restaurants? Or I only eat from the meat, that slaughter by Muslims and known as header?

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

So there is people clear from them? This is how long and I don't eat it.

00:37:59--> 00:38:01

Those people are doubtful.

00:38:02--> 00:38:06

I'm not sure I heard good argument here and good argument there.

00:38:07--> 00:38:10

So those people should watch it avoid this matter.

00:38:13--> 00:38:20

But there is other people. For them, it is so clear that it is Hello. And I do believe that

00:38:21--> 00:38:28

no matter how much I read the other side of the argument. For me, it is so clear that it is allowed.

00:38:29--> 00:38:40

That's why Somebody once told me Sure, why didn't you just avoid it because it's doubtful. For me, it's not doubtful at all. It's as harmless as drinking water.

00:38:43--> 00:38:51

And I might have some doubtful about certain countries and in these countries I don't eat from public

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

or public stores or restaurants

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

or certain type of meat.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

So here it can be

00:39:04--> 00:39:36

you can be doubtful about certain things and you might not be there is the opposite. There are certain areas for me are very dark. For those colleagues of mine who are very doubtful about the meat for them. It is so clear cut and it is halal or haram for me. No, no, I I'm confused and I avoided so what I'm trying to say it's these certain doubtful that it can be at one point Davo then cleared up. It also can stay doubtful for you forever. And for some people versus others.

00:39:38--> 00:39:43

It might be two people have completely different outcome.

00:39:44--> 00:39:47

And it's always related to your heart.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

You the own horn, the end of the day judge that if it's really doubtful to you or it's clear, and I'm competent. I trust this item. It's just a scholar. And you know what, I just follow him

00:40:02--> 00:40:49

Cinderella mela himolla admitted to him a whole lot. What is hap? He's known as de la Hawaii but he doesn't like this name or Hawaii that's why I'm allowing us to mention him he said is happily Brahim Amara Na Na a minute by I sat with him who couldn't have a shot there's no better man cross the river to us better than his half of the Ibrahim even though we disagree with certain things with him, it has happened to him and him but he or him are like great scholars, the same level of him Allah He lived in he's in same time he lives in the same time limit my mother okay Mama, they both said the Muslim issues are the issues that the Sahaba debated over

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

and the ultimate debate over it is haram or this Hara

00:40:54--> 00:41:05

these are the Mr. behat there is an issue Sahaba debated over how you should avoid it or the aroma the early scholars dividend Some said helaas Antara these the one that should avoid

00:41:06--> 00:41:23

but I don't think you can generalize that because there's too many things there is a difference of opinions between Harlem Harlem among the earliest colors about so many things that can be clearly known that the right opinion is this versus that because there is a clear evidence to support that position.

00:41:25--> 00:41:28

But it could be for system people very doubtful manner

00:41:29--> 00:41:36

it's like the debate over certain type of drinks certain type of food animals is allowed to eat or not

00:41:38--> 00:41:40

business transactions and so forth.

00:41:41--> 00:41:48

So a lot of animal said the issue that also the atom will say I have no position I don't know the role in it

00:41:50--> 00:42:02

when a great scholars said I don't know the rule in those because it's very confusing. I will just avoid talking about I have no comment on it. They said this the issue that you should avoid

00:42:03--> 00:42:12

so when the issue have a different evidence, and they contradict each others and he came come to conclude this the issue that should avoid

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

the for the average person.

00:42:19--> 00:42:27

I'm not looking into the evidence and when I found the scholars debating over something, share what it says it says head up

00:42:28--> 00:42:33

and share. Aim or share I haven't said it is haha.

00:42:35--> 00:42:41

And both I respect both I trust and both equal for me and so forth.

00:42:43--> 00:42:43

What should I do?

00:42:46--> 00:42:51

We sit in this case when you see so data like this that's what your avoid.

00:42:53--> 00:43:04

By I don't have this. But I was told by some people that this is how you know what I was told that this type of business transaction leasing cars is hot.

00:43:06--> 00:43:18

Then I go and ask Jeff, for example. so and so. Yeah. shefali Alicia Salah saw in Houston is leasing cars. Hello. Yes, it is Hello. As long as it's just a lease contract.

00:43:20--> 00:43:33

In this case, can you say oh, there is doubtful matter? No, you asked a senior scholars alum and he told you Tara, you're not going to leave that for on WhatsApp message for somebody to know who he is.

00:43:35--> 00:43:45

So here that's that doubt is not any more doubtful matters. Otherwise, we're not going to do anything if this will be the case. Any different opinions that you hear?

00:43:46--> 00:43:58

Or you had a debate over this and you're doubtful about it, but you talk to us scholars and he clarify for you and explain to you why it is hella White is hella has not anymore a doubtful matter.

00:44:00--> 00:44:04

But before asking it's a doubtful manner to avoid

00:44:06--> 00:44:12

contradicting opinions and you didn't arrive to a conclusion don't feel comfortable to doubt to manager avoid.

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

Why doubtful matters or exist?

00:44:21--> 00:44:35

How about any, this is a test from a last part Allah first of all, a lot, but a lot could have make everything so clear black and white. But a lot didn't do it this way. First of all, because of the flexibility in the area, and room for opinions.

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

Number two, it's a test

00:44:39--> 00:44:42

for people to test the adequate test their fear of a loss

00:44:44--> 00:44:49

and also give a room for people to make their wish to have their own opinion and their understanding.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

These dark matter happened because of that evidence sometimes the evidence, it can appear as if it contradict each other

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

So, you need the scholars will look at these evidence from different understand them also in a different ways.

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

For example, it may be so someone said

00:45:14--> 00:45:16

it is wired to have a shower on Friday

00:45:18--> 00:45:21

is it was it means bust or it is recommended.

00:45:22--> 00:45:26

So it's haram not to take shower or it is just recommended to take a shower.

00:45:28--> 00:45:37

So understanding the tax and the wording what exactly it means that can be a challenge, and lead to the existence of these doubtful matters.

00:45:38--> 00:45:47

Sometimes the Dharma doubt for matter happened because the scholars don't know. All the evidence related to the subject

00:45:48--> 00:45:51

didn't reach them, and they didn't know about.

00:45:53--> 00:46:04

The doubtful matter happens for the average Muslims or the common person due to the different factors by the scholars.

00:46:05--> 00:46:20

And in my opinion, one of the reason of doubtful marriage to happen, especially in these days and increased number of them to these days is because of the increase of ignorance. People don't understand the Sharia understand evidence to understand the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:46:21--> 00:46:36

And don't understand also the matter itself. So the amount, this will be a doubtful matter because the ATM can't understand this business transaction and understand what exactly means, what it really entails and so forth.

00:46:40--> 00:46:46

And maybe Salalah Cena when he said whoever do the doubtful matters, fall into the heart of

00:46:48--> 00:46:57

what that means fall into the heart of walkathon haram it means that doing the doubtful matter in itself a haram thing.

00:46:59--> 00:47:03

So because of that you have committed sin.

00:47:05--> 00:47:06

You see what

00:47:07--> 00:47:12

it is doubtful. But you know what I didn't avoid avoid it. I did it.

00:47:15--> 00:47:31

You know this business transaction sent us Hello, hello, I'm confused. You know what I just signed the contract. I did not take the advice of the process avoid that format is doing the doubtful matter means work if and how long and the person committed the hollow

00:47:33--> 00:47:40

or it means doing the doubtful matters will lead you eventually to fall into the heart of

00:47:43--> 00:47:43

both

00:47:44--> 00:47:46

according to many of the scholars book.

00:47:47--> 00:47:51

So that means avoiding the doubtful matter is not just a recommended thing. It's a logic

00:47:53--> 00:48:02

because protecting your deen and your honor is watching. That's why I said if you do that you protect your DNA stanbro ITV new airway

00:48:05--> 00:48:12

one of the lessons from and this one of the Hadith as a delete proof on the concept of said

00:48:13--> 00:48:23

you have to protect your D things that can lead to the harm should be avoided. And as such is not recommended should it's must be avoided.

00:48:24--> 00:48:33

This Headey shows us important point that Islam does not only want us wants us

00:48:34--> 00:48:36

not to do the heroin.

00:48:37--> 00:48:41

But also to stay away from the Hara.

00:48:42--> 00:48:43

And these two different things.

00:48:45--> 00:48:51

One level is not to do the harm, but another level not even to come near the harm.

00:48:52--> 00:49:06

That's why many things in Sharia I was wanted when I talk about Xena Don't come near adultery. That's why you're not allowed to hug and kiss a woman that is not allowed for you to touch.

00:49:07--> 00:49:15

Not allowed to be with her alone. spend the night together in a hotel room are not related to each other.

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

That's why we're

00:49:21--> 00:49:32

sharing for exams that don't sit in a gathering where alcohol is served. or drugs are used. Your words such gather.

00:49:34--> 00:49:37

You're not doing the how long, but you don't come near the how long.

00:49:38--> 00:49:39

You stay away from that.

00:49:41--> 00:49:54

Like when you have your hurts. You don't say You know what? This land is the Protector land, but I'm going to be just right here. You know, five inches four or five feet far No, you stay far away because you can control.

00:49:56--> 00:50:00

This Hadeeth tells us that we've been ordered to protect

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

Text our Deen and nothing can affect your deen negatively like sentence that will reduce your capital from your spirituality.

00:50:12--> 00:50:17

A shirt will take it completely away, but the sins will reduce

00:50:19--> 00:50:29

that's your backbone at something you should care for it so much. That's what I used to say. You have to add them Dino Kadena in Nima Hua Shan mukava demak

00:50:30--> 00:50:34

son of Adam you Dean is your flesh is your blood

00:50:35--> 00:51:02

that's how much you care about your blood. You know, when you injure yourself, you catch yourself when your blood start catching it is it Mashallah looks nice, you know, I like the color. No, you immediately stop the blood, you care for it, not to lose it. That's right. That's your deal you care for a to hold to its soul so tight. So you don't lose your dream. You don't lose your Eman.

00:51:06--> 00:51:07

Also, this

00:51:09--> 00:51:17

is a base for something Allah said it's recommended not wide, which is a huge laugh.

00:51:18--> 00:51:27

Whenever you find a debate between scholars over something, it's always better, I recommend free to choose the safe site.

00:51:30--> 00:51:33

It is better to choose the safe side.

00:51:34--> 00:51:35

for you as a person

00:51:37--> 00:51:45

I ask I'm traveling, when Adam told me the opinion of a drum roll the former that

00:51:46--> 00:51:53

if you stay for days, you're allowed to shorten the Salah beyond four days, you're not allowed to shorten pasola.

00:51:58--> 00:52:07

Another four said you have up to 15 days if you stay in more than 15 days. You can shorten the Salah. But if you stay

00:52:08--> 00:52:10

maximum 15 days

00:52:11--> 00:52:20

and you will leave you're not stay more than 15 days you are allowed to shorten the summer. And the third opinion by Jamie rockmelon opinion.

00:52:21--> 00:52:31

They said you are allowed to shorten the salah and traveling until you come back to your country to come back to your residence place. Even if you stay here. You are allowed.

00:52:35--> 00:52:38

Okay, so here these three opinions

00:52:40--> 00:52:43

it's recommended for you to get out of the Hara, how you get out of

00:52:44--> 00:53:27

all this. I agree that after the four days if you pray for work out you get even though so said you can shorten the prayer are up to you up to whatever amount of time until you come back to your country. But if you tell him this color, then to me and also to that position. What if I want to pray the for vote for what I'm up to? I'm not going to show you so they will tell you so is correct. So everybody agree your size? Correct. So the said in this case I get out of the era. I go to the opinion that unified all of them. As long as that opinion, you know recognized by the scholars, you don't make your own opinion. No, it's one of the opinion that everybody will agree upon.

00:53:30--> 00:53:33

That's recommended for you, for you as a person.

00:53:35--> 00:53:42

But for me as a Mufti, I can do that. For me as a Mufti, I only give you what I believe is the correct opinion.

00:53:45--> 00:54:00

Unless I give federal for an institute or a country, or a president or a leader, that I give them an opinion that can unify the society. for individual if you ask me about the salon,

00:54:01--> 00:54:02

that I believe in

00:54:06--> 00:54:15

one of the lessons from this Harry, that also the person as he or she asked to protect the dean, the must protect your honor.

00:54:17--> 00:54:32

And that's important. You should care not to put yourself in position where people speak ill of you or think bad about yourself. Don't do the things that provoke others, that invite others to speak about you.

00:54:33--> 00:54:39

Or to make you in a position that you're suspicious. Don't make things make you a suspicious person.

00:54:40--> 00:54:44

I give you an example. Somebody was asking me recently.

00:54:45--> 00:54:48

Let's say I am the amount of hearing the massacre.

00:54:51--> 00:54:51

Then

00:54:53--> 00:55:00

we have this office and the building we want to rent. So I come

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

I rented

00:55:02--> 00:55:03

and I make a business there.

00:55:04--> 00:55:07

And that business serve the mustard and serve the community.

00:55:09--> 00:55:39

Even if this business is completely pure and completely transparent, but it opened the door for people to speak about me, or his making business out of the most, is making business out of the most. He's making business out of that. His work. You know, we give, we support the message nonprofit for him to make some money. You don't put yourself in a position like that. You know what I hire my daughter and I hire my wife and I hire my cousins and I have my desk. That's open the door for people to accuse you.

00:55:41--> 00:55:48

You always tried to avoid the thing that that make your honor, in a position where people speak about

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

it's a wisdom.

00:55:52--> 00:55:53

This

00:55:54--> 00:56:02

shows the connection between the heart and the actions that why is the heart corrupt, the action corrupt, the How to sound the actions are sound.

00:56:04--> 00:56:05

Make sure that you understand those.

00:56:07--> 00:56:17

Make sure that you care about freeing your heart from all these negative feelings in a negative attitude filled with goodness.

00:56:18--> 00:56:19

Yeah, love your

00:56:21--> 00:56:24

philosophies. So much goodness in your heart, he gives you good.

00:56:27--> 00:56:37
