00:00:10--> 00:00:16

today are shala we will be speaking about a new Hadeeth and chapter of zoo.

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


00:00:20--> 00:00:21

as I say,

00:00:22--> 00:00:23


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

as it's basically when you leave the things that will not benefit you in the after. And illawarra is when you leave the things that it might harm you in the author.

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

And the hadith of today hadebe Nero model the Allahu anhu Allah, wa or the allow, be a no Kala Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentorship amin for whom in whom a hajah who are Buddha would also have a bad

00:00:57--> 00:01:05

abnormality Allah underrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, He who imitates

00:01:06--> 00:01:12

resemble any people in there, any people

00:01:13--> 00:01:21

is considered to be one of them, is considered to be one of them, or, and another word for who among whom he will become one of them.

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

This head is related by or narrated by abida wood and had been huband. And had been had been graded as sahi.

00:01:32--> 00:01:38

You might ask, what's the connection between this hadith about imitating others?

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

And the concept observed and what are

00:01:44--> 00:01:52

and the answer for this, this hadith is mainly related to imitating the people who are not

00:01:54--> 00:02:15

upon the religion of Islam or practicing that, why or the heavy or the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the relationship between this hadith and the concept observed and what is very interesting, and I thought, this is really very

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

clever, and very

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

smart, and very deep actually,

00:02:24--> 00:02:42

to bring this handy in this chapter, it shows you how much deep understanding of Java him a lot haven't heard of him Allah has. Because this hudy telling us is not allowed to imitate the kuffaar the disbelievers, the people have no faith

00:02:44--> 00:02:53

in their lifestyle, because their lifestyle, has nothing to do with the author and has everything to do with this dunya.

00:02:55--> 00:03:16

Those who are drowning in this dunya and dry from the umbrella there have nothing to do. That's not in their mind, it's not in their heart. And this is basically the opposite of observed. observed is to avoid the dounia out avoid the thing in the dunya that it will not benefit you in the

00:03:18--> 00:03:55

butt. You look at the way and the lifestyle of the people who don't believe in the hereafter who don't believe in align the Day of Judgment, who don't believe in Sharia, they have no water, they have no Hara and Haram, all they care about is to fulfill their desires, and to live their day, and to have fun and to you know, get from this dounia as much as they can. But for the Muslim No, it's not about you get from this dunya as much as you can, it's about you be protect yourself from this journey as much as you can. It's the opposite.

00:03:56--> 00:04:21

That's why the way of desert and the way of what it means that you will have a different lifestyle than the people who don't believe in the Sahara. The people who don't believe in a line the Day of Judgment, the people who don't believe in the *tier and the rules of profits and the messenger and especially the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and if you go on to be like them,

00:04:23--> 00:04:37

you end up like them in the dunya and what is worrying what we worry about that you end up like them and the after as well. You will have the same destiny and as they go on to face and to have

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


00:04:41--> 00:04:54

mentorship Bobby in US Bahamas, Romania, if you imitate them and you follow their footsteps, you relationship with this dunya will be like them the way the relationship with the dunya

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

but also we worry that that means that in the alpha, you will

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

Be like them as well.

00:05:02--> 00:05:19

Empty, they don't have anything to offer for the most part, Allah protect us. So it's a very brilliant and very needed for us because I can tell you that living long enough in the Western

00:05:20--> 00:05:26

world, I see how much we are impacted by the society around us.

00:05:27--> 00:05:38

That everything in this society on the side that we're living in, and unfortunately, even in 21st century in general, because the whole world became like a small village.

00:05:39--> 00:05:53

You see that even we traveled to the heart of the Muslim world today. But the point is, we live in here, it's much, much more tense, that everything around you is about connecting you more and more deeper into the dunya.

00:05:55--> 00:06:04

Not much to connect you up to the era, or to remind you of Allah and the Day of Judgment. It's all about this world.

00:06:06--> 00:06:10

And no doubt this is the opposite of observed and the opposite of

00:06:13--> 00:06:42

this hadith reported by Abbe de wood. And this Hadith, there is a debate over the authenticity of it. And I do believe that this hadith is acceptable hasn't and some may even categorize it as Sahil, likely mamedyarov Rahim Allah Whoa, Tada. But it is hasn't according to many of LMR Hadith. widowed Rahim Allah and it had been hatched out of co2 and

00:06:44--> 00:06:57

even Timmy and others, Joe would snag this it's a sound unacceptable honey. And the reason there is a debate over this hadith because a man has named Abdullah man had been Sabbath even though ban

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

there is a debate over how

00:07:02--> 00:07:17

trustworthy narrator he is when it comes to memory. His memorization and how accurate his narration is sunrella rahimullah consider him as weak narrator like even main Rahim allow

00:07:18--> 00:07:22

others consider him trustworthy like urban Medina urban it'd be hard to

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

be that would Chi lab survey.

00:07:29--> 00:07:37

So what it seems to me like is Hadeeth Willa, Adam is considered to be an assassin and kabhi has an acceptable duration.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

Men Tasha better

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

resemble imitates

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

assimilate like assimilate,

00:07:51--> 00:07:56

copying, adapting somebodies lifestyle,

00:07:57--> 00:08:05

the word shabda. This phrase in Arabic, the same in English, it means that you're doing this intentionally

00:08:06--> 00:08:58

as a fork of into shaba shaba shaba. I look like sometimes I look like something or I do the same thing. But I never have the intention to imitate you. I don't have to come to you to assemble to basically to be similar to you and try to be like you or adapt your look or your lifestyle. No, they just happened to be the same. Okay, so this heading shows clearly from its wording, that this is something you do it intentionally. And not only you do it intentionally belta can love her the Colet, Tasha, tab this tab shabba titled morality it means that you even you put effort to be like him to be like them.

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

And majority of the amount of female Mullah or any scholar that I come across speaking about this Hadith, he said that this head is meant or talking about imitating

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

the wrong thing, like a coup for the disbelievers that

00:09:21--> 00:09:37

facade, the wrongdoers that evil doers that innovators and religions, the people the fiscal the people of California and our Nabis asylum, he is from them

00:09:38--> 00:09:51

or he is like them or he is one of them. halon woman Adda and this is very scary. It means that he is one of them in this dunya and also in data.

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

That's why men have the

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


00:09:57--> 00:09:59

If you love someone, you will be resurrected.

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

That would that person.

00:10:02--> 00:10:52

And the only way what the only reason you would imitate someone like that is because you like him. You like their lifestyle you love that you love. So, that's why you see when people love a singer or a sports person or an athlete, you know what they do they start imitating his hairstyle, his look his shirt, his walk his way of talking. You know when the like a singer they do the same thing like us a movie star, a politician, whatever person that shape any any person that you like, and you love, you start imitating that person. And many times we imitate our parents, because we love them that's natural. So as scary who you imitate who you try to copy, you will be like them in the dunya

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

and you will be like them in the era

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

might be like them in the afternoon as well.

00:11:00--> 00:11:03

What do we learn from this short howdy mini lessons.

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

Lesson number one

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

at balaclava, here in Bilbao.

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

There is a connection between your appearance

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

and your inner

00:11:19--> 00:11:20


00:11:22--> 00:11:25

There is a connection between the heart

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

and the action that you do with the limbs.

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

They impact one another

00:11:33--> 00:11:38

is not only the impact comes from inside out but also from outside and

00:11:39--> 00:11:42

and a lot of people don't pay attention to that.

00:11:43--> 00:11:55

The way they you look the way you carry yourself, whatever you say the talk it's impact you and today in modern psychology, the said our physiology impact our psychology.

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

You know, if you

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

bring your shoulders together, you look down

00:12:03--> 00:12:20

like that. And you look down and you put your face like you know like sad face, you will be in a low mood. You open your chest, you take a deep breath and a big smile and you look up you think positive.

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

You know we do like that and you look up and you start thinking about memory you usually you think and remember the memory that comes to your head something positive. You're basically physiology, impact your psychology.

00:12:37--> 00:12:44

We smile because you are happy but also many happy many times our smile bring joy is to us.

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

So this is very important to keep in mind.

00:12:52--> 00:12:55

And the same thing when it comes to religion to faith.

00:12:56--> 00:13:01

How your Eman will go up or go down. Watch your appearance.

00:13:03--> 00:13:17

Watch who you imitate. Watch how you look like because some people said oh don't work. Why do you think that is so much in religion, focus on appearance.

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

As well as there is a lot of focus on the inner soul and your heart. And you from inside but also there is a lot of rules has to do with that. Look at the Salah.

00:13:31--> 00:13:56

There is talk about who sure and focus and to who I am being sincere. But also there's a lot of rules about where to put your hand how to move your finger where to look how to sit how to make record and these things are seldom invested time and effort and making sure that we do why because the way you perform the salon it will impact how you feel inside the salon.

00:14:01--> 00:14:18

So lots of Joomla you take a shower you put a new clause put a perfume before you come to the master if you're a male and see how that come early you sit near you pay attention that will make you receptive impact your insight

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

you know in abuse or solemn order the Muslim to be different. He said grow your beard

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

and trim your moustache

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

order woman to put hijab

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

order men to cover our and woman

00:14:43--> 00:14:48

these appearance has impact on you ins from inside.

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

It's interesting

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

if you start where

00:15:00--> 00:15:14

The same clothes like, you know, you put your baby in an old school or like, this is not any I don't know still even exists or not. But you know, in the hip hop like music and I didn't know zero about that culture.

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

Maybe I should ask kohara to help.

00:15:21--> 00:15:28

He can look me no more. carny. Make sure you if I, if I messed it up, look me now.

00:15:29--> 00:16:18

Okay. So if you put the cap on the side, you pull your pants down, and you start doing like this and you start like, like, you know, walking and dragging your feet and all those you will find, you know, from inside, you know, all this like, because, you know, I'm not a big I have a very clear position about musics and instruments. And that's not a lot. But I'll tell you one thing I like about hip hop music that, in my opinion, inspired a lot of young people to be proud of themselves to give them a strength and power these power these words empower a lot of people and I had a talk with many people and that's one thing I think is very positive actually. That it has a good empower

00:16:18--> 00:16:29

culture. But on the other hand, that is part of it, which is we all familiar with, you know, the drugs and the sex on the piano and the things that you know

00:16:31--> 00:17:00

but immediately when you start having the appearance like that, you'll find yourself start talking like that same language same word same human curse it just weird you know you put a car with the rims and lights and inside and outside like whatever you know like one of our wash your hair michelada blue lights from inside and read from outside whatever he does his car I hope he's listening to me

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

you know

00:17:03--> 00:17:09

when you do stuff like that and you put your car down you will find yourself

00:17:10--> 00:17:15

you know in even the way you carry yourself change

00:17:16--> 00:17:25

I will never forget you know one of the people I know very well he got a new car his first time ever to ride a BMW

00:17:26--> 00:17:42

like lead this model top notch no z Zed x whatever z for I think they call it you know sports car and oh my god I will never forget the look in his face

00:17:43--> 00:17:51

me immediately began like that, you know when you drive your Corolla or Camry and Sharla not

00:17:53--> 00:18:02

but you know you start like having like Bentley will no one of these like sports car Marathi like you know

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

and now it's different even the attitude change the outside impact the inside

00:18:14--> 00:18:20

you know, you dress in a very unmodeled that's why

00:18:21--> 00:18:27

it has to impact you from inside and as well if you dress modest

00:18:29--> 00:18:30


00:18:31--> 00:18:35

don't ever think that there is no connection between the end and out

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

and don't ever think that is the outside appearance is not important? No it is important

00:18:43--> 00:18:51

we don't have anything in endowed OR LEGIT called not important. We have things in our religion called less important but still it is important

00:18:58--> 00:18:59


00:19:00--> 00:19:09

this is something that you should care for in your religious issues and that that worldly matter issues so you be careful

00:19:10--> 00:19:29

with somebody I asked him Do you did you say at the car the morning or the night Vicar? No no yeah he Mashallah My heart is always connected with a lot. They are connected with a lot make your tongue connected to No no, no, don't focus on these things. I focus on the real deal, which is my heart.

00:19:31--> 00:19:44

Those people not following the way Mohammed sauce on them. Mohammed Salam cared to say that calendar out with his tongue as well. He cared to focus on what he sang and to reflect and to have his art attached to Allah.

00:19:46--> 00:19:57

Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, you know, it's not important to grow beard. What's important than your, you know, your beard is you tuck off your email.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Yeah, but if you don't

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

have full taco you follow the sun of the profits or sublime when the person ordering to do that? No, no, no, it's not about how much you cover from your body brother.

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

It's about how much higher you have. Yeah, that's true.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

But also there is a connection.

00:20:17--> 00:20:27

You follow the orders of Mohammed Salah Luddism. So the going back, so that's why I'm saying the issue of the shugborough you imitate,

00:20:29--> 00:20:38

you will find yourself naturally. And without even knowing you start adopting that lifestyle.

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

That's why we call it a saw himself,

00:20:44--> 00:20:49

your company will pull you in, will pull you towards them.

00:20:52--> 00:21:07

This Hadith is a very famous Hadith as an evidence for the HA who believes in said to the rye, or the cow when they talk about Sunday, there is no doubt part of the legend. But it depends how much you use it

00:21:08--> 00:21:13

sent to the raw air, it means that you

00:21:14--> 00:21:20

avoid something because it might open the door for something wrong or lead you to something Haram.

00:21:22--> 00:21:27

Okay, so that's basically, I stopped here because I don't want to end up there.

00:21:29--> 00:21:37

Like Sherry forbade you to be alone with a woman because it can lead you to, you know, have an

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

unlawful relationship with this woman

00:21:42--> 00:21:54

didn't allow you to touch a woman that's not allowed for you to touch because it can lead to Xena to fall into adultery. There is a ban boundaries.

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

You know, you don't cross that red line. You keep her privacy and you respect her, you know,

00:22:03--> 00:22:14

you don't violate because that can lead to something bad to happen later on. So here this this concept, why surely as a don't imitate

00:22:15--> 00:22:27

those who don't believe, don't have no faith have no Sharia have no religion, don't imitate them, because it might lead you to end up being like them.

00:22:29--> 00:22:54

Don't believe in God, don't believe in religion don't believe in prophets and the guidance of the prophets. And we have seen any, if you look at the people who I can tell you, the majority 90% I would say from the people and at least in my own experience of what I've been reading and following this issue for a while now, the people who leave Islam

00:22:56--> 00:23:18

By the way, majority people leave Islam, not because of theology or because of like, logic and rational or irrational decision that they came to now. It's about fulfilling desires, they want to live free, they want to fulfill that desire, like the world around them, say you know what, religion is just holding me back drum, drop the religion.

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

That lifestyle imitating it led to that

00:23:27--> 00:23:27

another point

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

at the shadow

00:23:31--> 00:23:50

imitating in Sharia when it comes to the imitating that is not allowed. It has to do with imitating the things the things number one that it is haram and our religion forbidden our religion to do or it is part of

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

other people's religion.

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

As for me forbidden to do

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

I'm not allowed as a Muslim

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

to carry across

00:24:03--> 00:24:06

or the crucifixion of Jesus

00:24:07--> 00:24:13

or to wear that Amica or the hat like the Jews

00:24:14--> 00:24:18

or to have a Christmas tree in the Christmas time and celebrate Christmas

00:24:20--> 00:24:28

okay, because that's a religious practice from other I'm not allowed to you know have Buddhist statues

00:24:29--> 00:24:49

in my car for blessings these are or something like that or imitate them I have a starch for someone I call this Mohammed okay. So imitating them in things related to their religion, part of their religion for non Muslims religion and part of their belief

00:24:51--> 00:24:54

and it is not from our religion.

00:24:55--> 00:24:56


00:24:57--> 00:24:59

It isn't their religion a

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

I'm not allowed to do it and doing it, it could be a form of kung fu or karate kung fu if it is negate the principle of Sharia like praying to other than Allah

00:25:12--> 00:25:15

or offering any act of worship to other than Allah

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

or haram sins

00:25:20--> 00:25:21


00:25:22--> 00:25:36

So, this is will not be allowed in our religion type, what about things that it is not religious, non religious things, things that are part of culture

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

Am I allowed to imitate non Muslims in it

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

we say that these things that part of culture,

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

if it is a common thing,

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

a common culture

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

you are allowed to do.

00:25:58--> 00:26:07

But if it is a culture only specifically for people who know to be non Muslim,

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

that's not allowed.

00:26:11--> 00:26:14

Only persons not a Muslim will do that.

00:26:15--> 00:26:25

Only Catholic will wear that only Jews will wear that only Buddhist will wear that only Buddhist monk will have that hairstyle.

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

You see, if this is the case, I'm not allowed to do

00:26:33--> 00:26:38

only one specific person in the world have this

00:26:39--> 00:26:39


00:26:41--> 00:26:46

of hairstyle clothes, I'm not allowed that person is and that's it, nobody else.

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

In this case, it became not allowed for you to copy it.

00:26:55--> 00:26:58

But if this is something common, this common

00:26:59--> 00:27:10

That's why nebby sallallahu alayhi wa sallam him and his companions did not change the clothes and the style of their clothing after Islam

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

you know, even after the move to Medina

00:27:17--> 00:27:24

did not say you know what, we're not gonna wear the same clothes of people of Mecca, they still wear the same clothes that Arabs used to where

00:27:25--> 00:27:29

and, you know, Arabs are the majority of the time are non Muslims.

00:27:30--> 00:27:52

But this type of clothes that they were wearing, was not a closed that is associated with Cofer. It's not associated with civic has nothing to do with being a specifically related to the wearing it because of shirt. I give an example. So for example, it's very common the color for that Catholic priest

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

it's a very distinguished

00:27:57--> 00:28:08

I don't think it necessarily that this color, something that part of the religion, but it became part of the culture that develop in Catholicism, and that's what they were.

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

I'm not allowed as a Muslim to wear

00:28:14--> 00:28:21

and I'm not allowed as as a as a movement or as a Muslim to do as an Imam to do that.

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

certain type of rosaries,

00:28:29--> 00:28:32

certain type of clothes that is became very distinguished now.

00:28:34--> 00:28:40

Even if it's not, they don't do it religiously. But it's became part of the culture that associated with that religion.

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


00:28:46--> 00:28:52

So that's why maybe sallallahu wasallam is close and close those companions were

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

known to be close.

00:28:56--> 00:28:59

That commonly used by Muslim and non Muslim

00:29:03--> 00:29:04

that's why anything

00:29:06--> 00:29:12

even if it is started as something related to non Muslim only then it became so common.

00:29:14--> 00:29:38

Between Muslim and non Muslim you're allowed to air it, you're allowed to do it. And it gives you example, during the prophets of Salaam in Bukhari Muslim How do you mess with marine water most of the personal making had drama wear workout clothes on Lionel masuka nice commies. The Muslim should not wear alkimos Walla Walla Walla Walla, Walla, barrenness,

00:29:39--> 00:29:42

you should not wear shirts,

00:29:43--> 00:29:44


00:29:45--> 00:29:49

pants, what an Baroness? What's up Baroness

00:29:51--> 00:29:58

Alberto knows is a term of clothes that was known to be wearing buying the Christians monk

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

and it's like a

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

long rope with the hoodie, you put the hoodie on the top of your head.

00:30:05--> 00:30:21

Like the long rope with the hood. If you seem today the Moroccans the people from North Africa, in general, especially in Morocco, the where there's a lot they have this they put it on the top of your head, that's a bonus

00:30:22--> 00:30:37

and it was something known to be coming from the Christian monks. Then it was used by the public advocacy by Muslim and non Muslims and some of the Sahaba of the alarm and whom have seen wearing boldness.

00:30:40--> 00:30:45

Like today family, a man and a sub pneumatic because not any more related to

00:30:46--> 00:30:57

the numbers. And then Emeric was asked about a bonus can it be where in the syllabus he was told but it used to be from that Christian monks who wear it

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

then he said yeah, but we all wear it here.

00:31:02--> 00:31:11

Carlisle Aquino, Canada University Norman Lucinda sobre katakana universal Howard, it was maybe but now everybody wearing it or it is commonly used.

00:31:13--> 00:31:15


00:31:16--> 00:31:19

to prove that point when when a culture became a common culture.

00:31:22--> 00:31:26

Romero de la started something called Adela when

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

they were when was enlisting

00:31:31--> 00:31:54

to document the name of people who are in that like reserve and for the army and people who are listed in the army. So when they go to the battle, it will be written their names so we know who went who didn't come back who got lost who died their inheritance their family. Okay. And that was Omar took this from the word from the Persian

00:31:57--> 00:32:02

and before that, in the base of solemn took from the Persian the concept of trench in the Battle of

00:32:03--> 00:32:09

the trench when Solomon told him that this is how I saw the people in Paraguay doing

00:32:11--> 00:32:15

and we took that nobody says that imitating haram now that's good.

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

Family metal, the Allah and how Allah

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

she told us map into remains.

00:32:25--> 00:32:29

I don't like the white woman's funeral,

00:32:31--> 00:32:32

the way that

00:32:34--> 00:32:43

the way of the woman funeral, why she shouldn't because the woman is carried, and they put just a garment on the top of her which shows the detail of her body.

00:32:45--> 00:33:04

Then she told her, you know, what I found him when I used when I was in Habesha and at the senior, I saw them doing something very nice. They take the the branches of the palm tree, and they make it wet. And they make it like a curve like a half circle, okay?

00:33:06--> 00:33:24

They curve it and they make it like like a half circle, then they put it on the top of the the sees the woman then the cover it with a cover. So the body will not be the details of the description of the body will not be shown. She liked it. And she ordered

00:33:26--> 00:33:36

that this is what will be done to her when she died. And when they carry her out of her house. And she said to her, when I die, you wash me and you do this to me

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

of miromar hear a woman would be an actual avid Islam.

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

She liked it. And she was the first one ever

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

for her body to be covered this way.

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

So she didn't feel any problem

00:33:54--> 00:34:11

with copying the people of Pacino are Christian. because number one is not something because it's not because it's not something religious. It's it's something from the culture doesn't contradict with us something good and beneficial.

00:34:13--> 00:34:18

And after that, it became very commonly used in the Muslims until today.

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

Also, it

00:34:22--> 00:34:40

has to have intention. Remember this, if you do something, and it happened to be like someone else, I don't mean anything, but this is what I think is the right thing. You know, it is not the shampoo. This is the way a lot created me. That's how my hair looks like.

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

That's what you know, culturally we are. We're not going to change it because there is some Muslim doing that, or some people who worship a lot doing that when we keep doing them. The same thing when we do some of our act of worship

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

There is someone who do the same kind of act of worship in the same time. We're not going to leave it because of them.

00:35:08--> 00:35:33

We're not going to change our time because of them. For instance, NW, Solomon said, grow your beard. To what today we see the culture today and the fashion today. Everybody grew up here. So Muslim law, let's be different. Let's shave our beard. No, because you've been ordered to do that you fulfill that. So it doesn't matter if somebody imitated you or became like you because your intention when you grow the beard is not to

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

imitate. What is name horden? Is that his name? The Rockets guy,

00:35:42--> 00:35:46

harden. And I'm not trying to imitate him.

00:35:47--> 00:35:50

I'm trying to imitate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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


00:35:54--> 00:35:55

another point,

00:35:57--> 00:36:03

it's important to keep that in mind, imitating non Muslim in things which is in the worldly matter,

00:36:05--> 00:36:09

as not necessarily culture, not lifestyle, in a worldly matter.

00:36:10--> 00:36:18

Anyway, even if it's a culture or lifestyle that is general and beneficial, and beneficial, there is nothing wrong with them.

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

So it's not Haram, for example,

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

to eat with chopsticks,

00:36:27--> 00:36:36

nobody can say Oh, oh, first of all, there is a lot of Chinese Muslims. Number one, number two, it's not a logistics, common thing people use that all the time, it's a way just to be.

00:36:39--> 00:37:15

Same thing with spoons or fork or knife and fork, nobody can say Oh, you know what this is imitating. And by the way, there is people at one point said that I even read a book about saying that is how long to eat with forks and spoons and stuff like that. That's wrong. That's wrong understanding of the Hadith. And what this had he talking about, because a lot of Herman one lesson that this had been talking about, mainly about the religious things, and the lifestyle that has to do with impacting your religion, but not the purely worldly things.

00:37:16--> 00:37:23

Or you imitate out of you know, that the imitating will impact or make you're attached to a person.

00:37:25--> 00:37:29

I'll give you example of Rama Rama gift.

00:37:30--> 00:37:49

So for instance, if you start having the hairstyle, and the same shirt, the same clothes, of someone who is yet any a disbeliever, or a facet, even if he's a believer, but the facet, a singer, Muslim singer or stars, and he's bad.

00:37:50--> 00:38:11

He known to be very bad person in his life, personalise the drugs and calling people to do the harm, and only practice the Hello. What do you think of you know, having the hair, same hairstyle, the same shirt, the same walk the same way of talking in what do you think you're going to end up doing?

00:38:14--> 00:38:15

You're going to end up following that person.

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

And being like that person.

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

That's why we'd be very careful

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

who you attach your heart to.

00:38:30--> 00:38:40

Also, this, remember I said you're not allowed to imitate and move the innovators in the way we do and the practice the religion, or the practice that

00:38:42--> 00:38:54

you avoid that. So it's not only related to the number of songs or the people who don't have faith or people, even people with faith but with bad manners, with bad clap.

00:38:55--> 00:39:09

With wrongdoing with evildoers, you're not allowed to imitate them in that evil doing in the lifestyle that is connected to their wrongdoing. I hope this distinguish is clear.

00:39:14--> 00:39:18

imitating number some in things that is beneficial to us.

00:39:19--> 00:39:21

It is recommended or watch.

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

If I know for example, that this is a protocol,

00:39:28--> 00:39:31

an excellent protocol to treat cancer invented by

00:39:33--> 00:39:45

Jewish community a Christian, Buddhist, atheist, whatever it is, I don't want to imitate them and take that protocol and apply it because that is save life. That's what

00:39:47--> 00:39:50

you know what that's a very efficient way of

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

preserving energy.

00:39:54--> 00:39:58

Or, you know, military equipments

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

And so far, it's recommended for the person to do so.

00:40:08--> 00:40:15

In America Mullah also said, if there is something as to do with worldly matters i said earlier

00:40:16--> 00:40:23

and it is if you see it you will connect that person to that Fiske to that evil knowing

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

or wrongdoing, or this hot on thing.

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

Let's say

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

this is

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

they used to have in the past, a hairstyle

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

only prostitute while put their hair in that style. So in the street if you see that hairstyle Simona Misato

00:40:55--> 00:40:59

facha the hairstyle of a prostitute

00:41:01--> 00:41:03

which does not allow for a Muslim woman to wear

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

or to put hairstyle like that.

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

I give you an example.

00:41:16--> 00:41:21

I was asked if it is allowed to have a Halloween Halloween

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

bar party

00:41:26--> 00:41:29

I said how is that Halloween or party

00:41:31--> 00:41:32

so they told me

00:41:34--> 00:42:05

Hello bar party, they rent a nightclub or a bar or the bring a person who is in the behind the bar bartender and we'll have all the bottles and all the thing and all the shots and all the cups for the you know the same look the same but it's not alcoholic. But it looks the same with the light and the DJ and you know, it's a nightclub material just because it's not alcoholic. I said that's how

00:42:09--> 00:42:12

shares music is not even about music, it's about the imitating

00:42:15--> 00:42:16

not alone.

00:42:17--> 00:42:29

That's why I do believe it's not a lot for you. Cheers on we have the cops and we heard each other that's imitating fest which is drinking alcohol

00:42:32--> 00:42:35

or you take the tequila shots and you just drink it

00:42:36--> 00:42:37

as not allowed.

00:42:42--> 00:42:56

So, it is important for people to avoid them. And to know that this is something to Sherry, I said no for a reason. So you will not be familiar you filmer you became so relaxed with the hat on.

00:42:59--> 00:43:03

Because if you do that, that became you relaxed you lowering your guard.

00:43:10--> 00:43:12

This concept also

00:43:13--> 00:43:16

is very important to know that some of these things,

00:43:18--> 00:43:28

our culture can be different from one culture to another. The whole concept of attachable is based on culture. And it can be different from one culture to another. I give an example.

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

Wearing serb like this one morning now along dress white.

00:43:40--> 00:43:44

This is something common in Arabia and the Arab peninsula and many Muslim countries.

00:43:46--> 00:43:55

So when he went to one Muslim country without giving name, I found a woman wearing the film that we were in Arabia woman wearing it.

00:43:57--> 00:44:01

If that woman lives in Arabia, we should it's hard because that imitating men

00:44:03--> 00:44:05

but in her country, that's a common thing they wear.

00:44:07--> 00:44:16

Even the hijab was the same thing that you know, the people from the Gulf where the water and stuff was very interesting to see that.

00:44:20--> 00:44:40

If you see a man, a Muslim man, have all these earrings and stuff like that. Oh, I mean, there's no you know what, I'm from Africa. I'm from certain places. I saw him for example, in northern Pakistan, he told me that they in mountains, that people there actually have earrings in certain places.

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

In Africa, they have all these earrings, this normal format.

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

They don't imitate anyone.

00:44:48--> 00:45:00

So it can be culturally accepted. At one point it was in some cultures, even an Arab culture, you read in books or petrography that some of the domains that I used to have

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

Have an earring.

00:45:02--> 00:45:03

And I took it off on a soldier

00:45:06--> 00:45:16

when I was younger, so, here, we see that this this can change over time. So I at one point, this

00:45:17--> 00:45:25

cloth, this fashion, this hairstyle, this why of why at one point was heroin

00:45:27--> 00:45:31

but later on became so common, because it is

00:45:32--> 00:45:36

in certain culture, you go to a village in Arabia or a village in Egypt

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

and you tell them, this is

00:45:41--> 00:45:47

no Muslim there do that, if you come like this, I will be like, you respect that culture.

00:45:48--> 00:45:53

And you said you're not allowed to do that in front of them, because that will make you odd.

00:45:56--> 00:46:00

As we say this, I recognize something very important

00:46:01--> 00:46:03

that by the day,

00:46:04--> 00:46:06

the culture border is disappearing.

00:46:09--> 00:46:14

The concept of this is culture here culture there is disappearing by the day

00:46:15--> 00:46:27

as a very thin line, and the world became a mix multicultural and it's not any more distinguished. But *y has a reason to make that distinguished culture

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

to protect

00:46:32--> 00:46:41

nomen Babson did the right to protect it put like a wall around the rules and about that personality of the Muslim

00:46:42--> 00:46:52

also to put a protection to the concept of will without will Bara because it means the love because imitating is inspired by love.

00:46:53--> 00:46:59

So that's why the Sherry I want to make sure that you watch who you imitate, because that means that you follow that footsteps.

00:47:00--> 00:47:03

Sherry I want to give the Teresa for the Muslims

00:47:05--> 00:47:49

that they don't imitate they should be the one who imitated somebody shared with me, you know, a post or writing from the middle of a time where European used to wear you know long cause when they became scientists and stuff like that, which is today we have that garment when you graduate and you have doctrine and Muto you graduate from college, you have this long robe and on you that's the same clothes that the Muslim used to wear and it became so, somebody was suggesting that this actually came as an imitating to this civilization the Muslim solution because of this knowledge and to advance and in math and algebra and all this like

00:47:51--> 00:48:07

this is when the Muslim in medieval time European used to show off that they know Arabic and some of them in their writing books they write some in Arabic just shot oh I was I learned among from Muslims.

00:48:09--> 00:48:18

So the concept of is has to do with the Shabbat but watch out. This is just not empty words it has to be actions has to be real.

00:48:22--> 00:48:59

shampoo is haram when it comes also to a chiffon. Unless we have approved that this T shirt was not meant to be haram and just not recommended. So anytime the person said a shape and does this you should not imitate the shaper. You should not eat with your left hand do not drink with your left hand. You should not sit while your hands behind you like that mutating the people have had enough and half of you in the in the in the shade. Half of you in the sun this macro dislike. Even Mr. Ambrose entered the analysis on

00:49:00--> 00:49:33

the traveler is shaped by the two traveler is to share a bond and the ferrata is a group and another word. Don't be like the ship on travel by yourself or only do you have to be more than two type when I travel today. Do I have to have at least two with me. Is it haram to travel by myself? No, it's not. In the B Salatu. Salam for Buhari he told American in Hawaii. He's American he said me and my friend we left and inhibitions and told us make that and make your armor. And the older among you leave the prayer

00:49:34--> 00:49:38

because they have the same amount of color. They became Muslim in a second

00:49:39--> 00:49:54

in the bishop send Obama to Mecca to bring the news and he sent them by himself. He's in so many messengers have traveled by themselves. So the honey shows is not haram but it's just not recommended especially in the old days when people try to cross the desert.

00:49:55--> 00:49:56

final point

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

and this hat is said to ever imitate

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


00:50:01--> 00:50:03

becomes one of them.

00:50:04--> 00:50:12

Yes, the relevant always focus on imitating the kuffar or imitating the number song or the dog doors or the bat, but also by the way this

00:50:14--> 00:50:21

can apply to righteous people. If you imitate the righteous few limited the good people, you become one of them.

00:50:22--> 00:51:04

So you should care to imitate the good. imitate the good people imitate what is good in people, a Muslim or Muslim, imitate? No, what is right and correct. And remember, we start with that appeared that your physiology impact your psychology. Don't ever underestimate the power of imitation and copying a lifestyle of someone. Especially we talk about dessert or whatnot. Because the lifestyle of the people who don't believe in a lot of the attachment is not going to lead ever to have dessert or what are in your life. May Allah subhanaw taala and panel Yeah, can we miss Amanda's? Some of us
