Alikum walaikum salam alaikum. How are you very well just like Aloha immersion. Today I was in Central Mississippi. And I was hoping like you know what, when the Imam says salaam Wa alaykum it will be Sheikh Hasina, because I know you do. Not today, but it wasn't you today. So good to see you, Chef. It's been a while. I'd like to ask you for a short reminder as we start every show and then we can get into some questions from our viewers and shop now like Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Carrying while early he was the heat as you may know praise belongs to Allah. And may the peace and blessings of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah
be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, welcome to the brothers and sisters interviews at home. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he blesses us all and has mercy upon us all. And allows these final days that we are spending in this month of Shaban to be days of preparation and days of
purifying our intentions towards Allah subhanaw taala because what is upon us is a shout out on our team is a very great and blessed month. And I know that we are reminded many occasion about a blessed month and his month of Quran a month of Mercy it is a month of this and it is a month of that and how often the month passes us by and we don't get what we want really from from this particular month. But as I was mentioned and in the preparation of before the actual happening of what we're waiting for, it is never too late to prepare yourself to set goals to achieve certain things from this from this particular month to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala that you become a
And what I have
having a conversation with some brothers yesterday
Islam for a lot of people has become something which is more prevalent, you see
sisters wearing more hijab than they used to,
you see, you see the signs of Islam more than you you did a number of years ago, which on the one hand is very good Alhamdulillah but on the other hand is that there are more challenges or different types of challenges that Muslims are, are facing now that they that they never had before. And with that, how there has become a lot of confusion
and especially the tests of who to seek knowledge from and how to seek knowledge and who to ask and who not to ask, these things have become very, very difficult for Muslims how to decipher as to what is the right thing to do.
So, platforms like the Eman channel,
and the programs that it does 100 And I believe that serves a great
a great service to the Muslim community. And the Muslims who regularly participate and watch their programs can also be partners, if you'd like in, in the work that the man channel does, we don't feel well you shouldn't feel detached from it. That is a completely separate kind of
entity you should feel part of it and how you can be part of it is not only by supporting the channel itself, if it's if it's financially you want to support it by giving Sadako charity that you can do that. Or if it means that you're watching the programs via the social media that you know you share, it is click for many of us we put up different pictures and share pictures on our social media we share links and different things like this, you know, just if you're watching it through the social media, just press that share button, so that you you know your other contacts, can watch the programs and benefit from the, the great work that a lot of the brothers who for a lot of the
people who watch that, they never they will never see them, Allahu Allah, they may never see them, but there are many brothers, who are many ancestors as well in going and doing a lot of work in in producing a lot of beneficial
programs or beneficial kind of work for for the Muslim community. So the Muslims, the brothers and sisters who
know about the man channel should really try to spread it as much as they can and share the head and who knows that by you, allowing other people to have knowledge of what the channel is about.
That person will gain so much benefit and you get the reward for that.
So I would encourage all the brothers, the sisters to really market the channel as much as they can to share the goodness which I believe is is can be found in the work and child toilet is
the work of the prophets is is always there for us to to carry out and it comes away different forms. And in the modern way that we're doing it now is through you know through the through the internet through social media and things like that. So we ask Allah azza wa jal to to bless the channel to bless unless every all the Muslims who are going to
spend their time in the month of Ramadan let you know the man trying to become your new companion in the month of Ramadan. You can benefit from the lectures you can benefit from the new series that are coming up the q&a that's coming up and things like that. Allow it to be something which is part of of your life and can benefit you. May Allah just make it easy for us all. I mean, thank you so much for for that Jeff Miller bless you. I'd like to remind our viewers at home that we're live now on ASCII man, we're going to be here up until eight o'clock today. So that's over the next 50 to 45 minutes. So what you can do if you have any questions, Ramadan is only a few days away. Or you may
need advice for other acts of worship which are all relevant to Ramadan if you perform them well in Ramadan, then you're you're making the most of your Ramadan by doing so. So to reach us call Oh 235150769 You'll find this number coming and going at the bottom right side of your screen. If you're watching for the first time, then this is the channel this is the show where you can get your questions answered regarding your life as a Muslim. Chef today chef will seem Clemson's qualified to answer your questions authentically according to the Quran and Sunnah. So do stay tuned and share with your family and friends as our chef advised. So our next question chef is from so from
Facebook. The question is a Salam Alikum if a sister would like to marry What does not have a Willie What should she do?
again, this is an issue that person has I don't have a Willie because maybe the person doesn't understand who the who the Guardian is. Now if
we're talking about a revert or somebody's embrace this to them convert to whatever term you want to use, then they don't have any male Muslims.
family members, then they can go to the main imam in their area and explain the situation to them. And either individual or another person can be designated to be the relief for her. And that's where possible, embraced Islam. As for a person who was born into a Muslim family than their father will be the Willie. And if he's alive, then he has guardianship over over his daughter for the purpose of marriage.
The question doesn't specify as to what the situation but I mentioned both, why don't you thank you so much. With that we have our first caller of the show Salam Alikum. To our caller, welcome to the show. What's your name? And where you calling from?
I'm calling from Russia. Is it okay? If I don't tell them then? That's fine. We just need your question, Shawn. Okay.
but then wine vinegar might find vinegar in the spirit vinegar, the same principle to eat or
chef the three types of vinegar are they all the same and all day permissible to eat these tip these types of vinegar if that you find them in separate in products. So for example, if you buy a product, you buy source, we buy sandwich and it has any of these products in it, then it's no problem for you to to use in shallow Tanna.
Justice, because that's mostly where you find it. Okay, you find it you find it within sources and things like that. If that's the case, then it's no problem.
Thank you so much. If your answer next question is, chef, I want to know if you if you do a good deed and it is not from your heart does it still count? If you do it for the sake of of it being something good? Will it counts and will it get written by the angels?
So the Prophet alayhi salam is a very
important Hadith in this topic. And the hadith is in Nanaimo Lavinia that actions are known and are by their intentions.
In Nevada, Mr. Lubin Nia who in Nemo liquid limit in Manoa, that every person should have what they intended.
Then the Prophet Allah says Allah mentioned in Hadith, an example where a person may they do the same action,
they make a handler, they leave one place to another place. And one of those reasons is that a person makes the hijab for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and His messenger and he says, and then another person makes the hijab for the purpose of the dunya for some worldly matter or for the purpose of marriage, maybe that dunya or the purpose of marriage is a good thing for them.
The Prophet said for hijra, to who Ilana had your ID, then the Hydra or the reward or that bought that person intended will be for what he or she did. So, in essence that if a person does an action which is deemed good, but has absolutely no intention to do that, then it is important that you have the intention because the intention is there for you to receive the good deeds and shantala There are certain intentions and this is why I want to make a difference and there are certain intentions that are made which are assumed and you don't need to make a new intention for it. Okay, okay.
This will come under Chapter code is this hub and that we will assume continuation of an intention that you made. So for example, that I made my walk from my home and I was going to the masjid to to pray one of the Salah was one of the prayers
and I got it on my car. And I know in my mind my intention is to pray that that particular solid state Salah towards the heart, okay? Now when I reach the salah when I reach that prayer, is it required for me now to make that intention? I'm, we're seeing Of course, you're not gonna make it verbally, but important for you now was a must for you to make that renew intention. We will after the prayer the person says I didn't say my intention or didn't make an intention just before the prayer.
Once we just spoke to speak to that individual, so where were you coming from our mind will look from my home, I went into my car with the intention of going to the Salah, to Salah to the masjid to perform salah. We said we will assume that you had the intention to do that. So that's not an issue. Okay. So there are certain things which you will will assume continuation of the intention that you had at the beginning. But then there are certain actions which require you to make an intention for each time that you do that action. For example, if you're gonna do obligatory fasts, you're required to make an intention each night. Now a person may think, Oh, I didn't do that, or I've never done
that before. The point is that when you make or you have to hold in the morning, or you intend to get for free, are you intending to fast without even? Yeah, of course you are. That's your intention. Okay. But so there are times when you're required to make an intention and we knew each time as for these dates, and it is something which you know, we won't
assume that there is a continuation of the intention, we will go back to the situation that you have to make an intention.
To be rewarded. My last point, I hope that's clear. That's clear. Thank you so much. With that, we'll go to our next caller, I believe it was our previous caller. So Salam Alaikum Welcome back to the show. What's your question for us?
My second question about the some of the families, you know, they pool in for their funeral costs.
And when some, one of them and one of them dies, they take the money out for the funeral costs, you know, is it okay to pull in for
funeral costs to pull in, you said that, there's some families that go together and then pull in some money every family or every person
in the pool that money and for every one of them dies, they take the money out for their for the cost, you know,
all right, Chef, is that okay? To do.
Okay, so the origin is that if a person passes away, and that they have wealth, that is their, their wealth that they own, that will be taken will be taken from that to prepare the funeral, it's not an obligation, if they have wealth, it's not on others only, it becomes an obligation from others that that person has nothing. So that deceased has wealth.
It is allowed for those others families, or those preparing the funeral to take from that deceased as wealth to prepare their, their particular Janessa. If, however, the people say we want to put money together, three, four or five 610 people, we all want to put money together to pay for that person's Janessa as a form of sadaqa, then there's nothing preventing that they can do that. Well. Oh, Hannah, thank you so much. Our next question is from WhatsApp The question is a Salam Alikum. Is it true? In Islam, your mother in law and father in law? You have to treat like your own parents? What is the evidence?
So in Islam, you have one mother, and you will have one Father.
of course, that's a well of course, I already know that. But then we don't want to I'm saying that is because we don't want to confuse because a title may be given to another person and like mother in law, but the She is not your mother.
So ALLAH SubhanA, Allah Subhana Allah says, well, but Allahu Allah to Sheikh will be he sure you will worry, they may say
that, worship Allah alone, and do not associate any partners with him and be dutiful to you validate your two parents, your mother and your father.
So how do I treat? Because my mother and my mother in law and my father, are they, of course, would not have the same in terms of stature? Or how do I honor them as my own mother and father.
But that doesn't mean I dishonor them. Or I'm rude to them. Or I say to them, you're not my mother, and you're not my father? Because it is such a situation where I'm being asked or somebody is being asked, Does the mother in law or the father in law have the same rights? Or should they be the same as the mother or the you know, my mother, mother and father, it means there was an issue, I'm trying to understand that there's an issue between the husband and wife that maybe the husband is saying to his wife, you need to treat my parents like your parents, okay? Or maybe the wife is saying to husband, you need to treat my parents, okay, your mother and father in law, like your appearance,
okay, These things shouldn't be said to them. Because this is not the case. It is upon you individually to treat your own parents
like nobody else. And everybody who comes after that is not at the same level.
However honoring being compassionate and loving and merciful and good that is required of you but it's not a matter of not for you to make a point of saying that you are not at the same level this is not the point you don't say things like that.
But we're talking about in terms of hierarchy them that your mother and your father there was nobody like them and they deserve to be honored like nobody else. Okay. So in situations where people what is the evidence to say that they will the same they are not the same? He's not you know, your mother and your father is not my mother and father you they have rights over you that they you know, I'm is different from me. Okay. So situations where there's disputes amongst couples okay, we don't want to stop bringing these things in. But nonetheless as kind of a general advice that you treat all Muslims with compassion love and those that maybe are you're gonna have more contact with especially
your in laws, then you make an extra effort inshallah to Allah to show them incentive tokens towards them.
Thank you so much. With that, we'll go to our next caller. Salam Alikum to our caller, welcome to the show. What's your name and where you calling from? Slowly what I'm
calling from Manchester so I'm Brother How you today?
What's your question for us? My question to Chef is shift. Can you explain
that in order to have Islamic marriage you ceremony
What are the main requirements are there? And if a couple decides to go only for illustration purposes, and there are two witnesses there, will that's perfect for Islamic marriage.
Do you want to ask anything shift? Was that clear?
Thank you so much, brother say do you have any more questions for us today
are just like lucky if your call may Allah bless you for the rest of our brothers and sisters watching at home, you're also able to call us as brother say you just did by dialing oh two or 35150670769 They'll bring you into the studio to ask you a question. Otherwise, you also find facebook, whatsapp and email options coming and going at the bottom right side of your screen up until eight o'clock today in Sharla. So Brother Syed asked what are the main requirements of a marriage ceremony in Islam? Okay, so, for an Islamic marriage to be valid, there needs to be a real puzzle Jane there needs to be both the man the man and the woman that they are accepting of the
The new show has been added into male witnesses who are just fear could people and then also you need algebra will COBOL you need an offering and an acceptance Okay.
And you need a different one or the other is the removal of any matters which would prevent them from marrying. For example, let's say
a woman is still married to somebody else, negotiable issues going through her head or something like this, as long as these conditions the presence of course, the woman's Guardian
and The these conditions are fulfilled then the marriage can be
we say it is valid. Now going to normal registry or civil marriages these conditions
may not be fulfilled. So, it is important to be aware that the Islamic conditions for marriage must be fulfilled. And just because a ceremony is called a marriage may not necessarily fulfill the Islamic requirements, even if the MAHAK may not be mentioned, but later on it can be installed as a right for her and that she will be entitled to something called el mal method. And that would be
the dowry which is customer relief for her situation to people that she would be entitled to she will receive that and that will be right for her all the while. Thank you so much.
Um, our next question is a Salam Alikum. In today's world, as an IT engineer, most common jobs is working in multinational consulting companies, which give services to all types of clients like automobile company networking, banks, insurance, mobile company, mobile companies, as an employee, it's not in our hand to choose the project, whatever project
has been given to us, we have to work on them, what is the ruling on working in such companies, there are 1000s of Muslims working in companies which have both haram and halal projects.
Okay, so, as an IT engineer,
his will work for his own company, and then they will have contracts with other companies.
If it is within your
capabilities to you know, work or do your work or at work for companies, which you you personally feel, do not go against any Islamic principles done, it's not an issue, if you feel that he's doing work for a company that you think is clearly against Islamic company or gambling company or something like that. And if you have the right to ask for,
to work in a different area. And that's the flexible in that then you can do that. If there is no flexibility, because it may be because you were just given jobs and may have to do that, then you can continue with your work. Why number one because possible and the origin of the type of work that you are doing is something which is of course permissible. Okay. And I would assume that the vast majority of the work that you're doing is doesn't contribute any Islamic principles at all. So based upon this will say that is not an issue for you to do that work, regardless of where you go, and Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Thank you so much. With that, we'll go to our next caller of the
show. So Salam Alikum so our caller, welcome to the show. What's your name and where you calling from? Hello, my name is Andy, fan. And you can sound flower cats.
The question I'm asking is, I've struggled
most of my life with issues of like self esteem, self hatred.
I've seen people psychologists
psychiatrist regarding this, which is
sort of psychotherapy, medication and things like this.
But I'm really struggling to her to find reasons. Sometimes it's just to sort of keep on going.
So I needed to find some advice just
isn't anything in Islam regarding self hatred, body image, and things like this. Just to give you some type of peace, and a reason not to, obviously, off the cuff really? Yeah. All right, then, if you can hold the line. Andy, thank you so much for your call today.
We'll definitely give you some words of advice from our chef shall see we'd like to take it from there. So I think
brother Andy, that first and foremost, he's done the right thing. And seeking medical advice, professional advice, professional help on the matter because as a Muslim, it is allowed for us to to seek help from different sources.
And an added to that Alhamdulillah we also have guidance from the Quran and Sunnah which will
help us develop our thoughts on outlook on life in general, because that's important. So in line with a medical advice and professional advice that you have got, you can if you'd like
a support that with your, our view of and our understanding of life in general now.
But then they didn't mention anything. Specifically that what makes him feel down or what makes them what makes him feel the way that he's feeling. Because sometimes there can be some trigger issues as a trigger points where they feel
for whatever reason that makes them go down this or this way of thinking, just to stop you, Chef man, I believe and the Lord doesn't follow Islam. He's not a Muslim, man. So just a thought that you know that if I have a question, Oh, you are alright. I'm sorry. The studio team says otherwise. Okay. So all right. Understanding
is a brother humanity not nonetheless, you know, if apologies, not at all 100 ML was real make easy for our brother. So what I would say is that
in line with the advice and medical advice, professional help that has been given to you, and how you, you kind of undertake that information, what makes me feel the way down the thing what I'm particular points, so I can go to the Quran and Sunnah. And I will know that for things like trials, because this is a trial and tribulation, but I lost a part I will give me trials and tribulations and test me with different things. Number one, is that it will never be a matter or trial that is too much for me to overcome. It is always a trial that I have the ability with help of Allah subhanaw taala to get over.
Also, we look to how the prophets I seldom used to deal with life. And the Companions, they said that the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him Kerner, your head will offend. He used to love being optimistic.
And optimism is is the state of mind.
You know, for example, instead of looking at things possibly in the negative way, or a way which would, you know,
depending on the situation is to kind of maybe this, this won't happen or that at least
we have to take a quick break. We can continue afterwards. Michelle, I'm sorry to stop you there. Thank you so much for everyone for tuning in so far. We'll be back after a few minutes. So stay tuned. offsuit we'll come back to continue taking your questions in sha Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah

SMIL salatu salam ala Rasulillah assalamu Alikum to our brothers and sisters and welcome back to part two of today's Ask you man show where we're going to be here for the next 30 minutes to continue taking your questions and getting them answered by our chef today Imam was in Clemson who's here to answer your questions authentically according to the Quran and Sunnah. So if you'd like to call us then dial O two o 35150769. You will find this number coming and going at the bottom right side of your screen. For everyone watching along on Facebook, you're able to leave your question in the comment section and we can put that forward to our chef as well. Inshallah. So chef, we were in
the middle of answer you are in the middle of answering the question for Brother Andy.
If you'd like to continue Labour's mid level handling salatu salam ala Rasulillah. But
believe Of course, the short time that I'm going to speak now is suddenly going to solve all the problems or the trials that the other hand is going through anyone else for that matter, but my very small advice, I hope that
can give some solace or some some peace to that individual, that the whatever the shaytaan or whatever outlook you have on life, how bad things that they can be, that always as long as you try to turn to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanaw taala is carried the residual is close to answering your supplication and that the way out is closer than you think it is. Sometimes if we look at it on a human level that I have to do this A B C and then only that can happen then I have to do that. Always I believe and I know that I look beyond that. And I know that Allah subhanaw taala can make things easier for me and the prophets I sell him went through the greatest trials
like anyone could go to slay yes deal he would love fell in Arabic is called which is optimism was looking to good thoughts, good side of things. Even if at the beginning, you are not necessarily totally convincing yourself. But nonetheless that you are saying it and it is important that you look at things and you allow optimism to be part of your life and not to keep it keep it in okay because you keeping it in and not saying anything allows the negativity maybe to become a little more stronger than the optimism. So even though I'm I'm saying things and then the person questions while I'm saying if I don't believe it. That's the
shaytaan Don't say things negative, or there's any kind of negative negativity, just don't say, okay, but things are optimism, things that are, you know, looking good. On the good side of things, the better, the better, better way of looking at things, they just say it. And then the more you say it, the more you're making uncombined with making dua to Allah subhanaw taala would hope that you know, the situation will become
easier and better for for the Andean and all those who are going through similar trials.
I would also say that if you can maybe speak to somebody who's maybe a Muslim counselor, professional counselor who can can open up the issue a little bit more deeper, and maybe get the more direct answer that you need. And I asked her like, I make dua for the body to make it easier for him. Ramadan is a good opportunity to turn to Allah subhanaw taala thank you so much,

Now, as I said at the very beginning of the show, the Don't Don't Don't think that you know just because you're watching the show on your phone on your television or what we're all one on one we're one brotherhood one sisterhood and you can be part of the show you this is we're not doing this because for any other reason for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and for allow the brothers and sister to have their input in our shows as well.

Thank you so much for that. And if you call for the rest of our viewers at home, you can also get in touch in touch by dialing otoa 35150769 This number is coming and going at the bottom right side of your screen I want to mention I do want to mention something else. And that is SubhanAllah.
I'm assuming I may be wrong. But I'm assuming but Andy he embraced Islam.
With a name like Ghandi I mean, I wasn't born with a Muslim name. I had a question. I want to ask you that is your thought and that's okay. It wasn't an answer.
a person who Allah Subhana Allah guides to Islam
Eliza didn't didn't guide you for any other reason except that Allah loves you.
And I lost power to Allah sees you in a good way. So you have great value.
And in terms of giving yourself a value, and how do you or what do you measure that by? Not by money.
But as Allah subhanaw taala says that the best of you in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah, all those who have the most taqwa and if Allah subhanaw taala guides you to the religion of Islam, Allah subhanaw taala guided you to a deen guide to he guided you to his religion. This is a sign inshallah to Allah that Allah loves you. And for brother Andy, you know, regardless of whatever thought would come to you, any person who embraces Islam was feeling down, that they should know that Allah subhanaw taala took them out from the Lumad took them out from darkness and brought them to the light of Islam. And this is a sign Long Island that Allah is within loves you you have a great
position and standing with Allah subhanaw taala. So be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala thank you so much.
And just to follow up on that, we'll move on to our next question shortly. But what role does thankfulness play in our life? Or, actually, what's the significance of thankfulness to Allah to us as Muslims? Yes. So Thankfulness is one of the states that we should
be in quite often, if not always, in that the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gives to us or something we can never count to enumerate, we're into their dunya amatola letter. So if you try to count the blessings of Allah, you will never be able to enumerate them. There's so many. So if you like because of that, I should always be in a state of being thankful and grateful to Allah subhanaw taala and as long as you remain grateful and thankful to Allah subhanaw taala you recognize that he is the one who blesses you, and that He alone is the one who's deserving of all thanks and praise. Then Allah subhanaw taala will increase you
So in a win win situation, and this is the beauty of understanding your Lord, that Allah subhanaw taala is more than you can ever imagine from every respect, he is more merciful than you could imagine. He is He, from any aspect, that Allah subhanaw taala is more.
And things like this being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala doesn't mean that you just, you know, you don't get anything back being thankful means that you Allah spent, I will give you back to you. And if you're not, if you're facing a situation where it's difficult for you to be grateful, because you know, it doesn't mean you're being ungrateful, but you need to be patient, because there's a trial or a calamity that you need to be patient. So the most of them, if you like, is between either being patient, because they're going through some hard times, be patient,
or you're being thankful.
So try to be what between these two states? And are you sure how you're able to be thankful while being patient? You are a Detroit felon? Very good question. So, if a person is being tested,
what is expected of us to be patient, but even a higher level than that Subhanallah is that you thank Allah azza wa jal for your test.
And this is the view from the very highest levels, supplements whatever it is to be satisfied, and that you are accepting and grateful, or that what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for you. Okay, so it is possible. And may Allah will allow us to reach those high high levels of of iman, thank you so much. We have two callers waiting callers waiting on the line.

What What would the sharks say in regards to like the best way to give the cap being in the UK because I know there's so many charities out there that you can just, you know, calculate your on the gap and donate it online. But to me, that just seems a bit
too easy in so in a sense, I know it's all supposed to be difficult, but it doesn't seem I don't feel fulfilled or like a fulfill a duty because you're just giving it in someone else's hands and its own messes kind of upon them to do what they want with the money and to give it whenever they have the however they do it. So what is the best way to kind of give the cat living in the UK? All right, then. Do you have any more questions for us? No, that's all.
Well, yes. Thank you so much for your call. With that, we'll go to our next caller salaam audio come to our quarter. Welcome to the show. What's your name and where you calling from?
My name is Nasir kleinen. I'm calling from Birmingham. Sorry, brother. And I said how are you today? Alhamdulillah I'm fine. I'm doing the answer your question for us. Basically, brother. I have got no knowledge at all it Islam. Because then what am I was living I'm born in Africa, but I've come in England I've been here for a while. I've actually lost my sight completely now.
You see Alhamdulillah but I wanted to know what I can do to learn Islam. You know the from the basics and all right. I'll make it easy for you, brother and except from you, your patients. Thank you for your call. Stay tuned. We'll get that answered in just a few minutes. Inshallah.
For the rest of our viewers at home, we have around 10 minutes left of our show. So if you'd like to ask your questions, then dial otoa 35150769 You'll also find this number at the bottom right side of your screen coming and going with the rest of the options to get in contact with us inshallah. So our first question chef from the sister asked, what is the best way to give zakat while living in the UK? It seems it seems too easy to give it online to calculate it online and process it online. And it doesn't feel fulfilling. What do you advise is the best way to give it
bleep so concerning does occur. I mean it is
as is with establishing the prayer five times a day, or person fasting the month of Ramadan is performing Hajj.
The establishment of Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam. So it is a great obligation that you are fulfilling and as long as you are doing it and fulfilling that then this is a great a bear that you are establishing. Now, some of the purposes of giving zakat is from the different categories is to Pete to feed or to nursery to feed but to cater for the needs of the poor and the destitute. Now sometimes it is for you to be fulfilled. Ie that will you give your money and then you want to see how that
benefits the poor people. If you don't see that, then sometimes you can feel unfulfilled. Yes, but don't feel that way as long as you have number one you're establishing your blog.
So that's the main thing, okay. Now there are if there is a particular charity, who, who you, you know, that will distribute your Zika in a way that is
transparent or clear. And it has been done correctly, then that is enough for you. And as long as agreed to they will, they will explain to you how this account will be distributed to whom? And how, if it's in a different country, for example, okay, then this can be some form of fulfillment for you. Okay. So I think that living in the Western countries is very difficult for us that, you know, sometimes you can't go to places where the poor places to see where the money is being delivered, to the poor people, if that's going to who's going to, but at least you can give it to a transparent charity, who will inform you, these are the people that's going to going to so then you can, you can
feel a little more spiritually fulfilled Al Hamdulillah. And these people are benefiting from the money that has been given to them. Thank you so much. We'll move on to our next caller now, and then come back to our question from our brother, Salam Alikum. To our next caller, welcome to the show, what's your name and where you calling from?
We can shoot questions for the shape where you can go ahead, brother.
Question one is, is it okay, when it comes to the moon sighting for the beginning of Ramadan, or any month for that matter? To follow Saudi because the sun was the Muslim face.
Following Saudi isn't a valid opinion.
The second question is, Is it okay to eat meat, which has been stoned, but the animal hasn't died. And so then you sort of after that, because I was speaking to a Muslim who's involved in in the meat industry. And he was giving the example that if you go to hospital for an operation to give you an anesthesia first, anesthetic first, so when you have the operation, there isn't as much pain or there's no pain. So the same thing when it comes to the slaughter. If the animals fun first, he will suffer less pain. And he was arguing that scientifically.
The Islamic slaughter, those give a lot of pain compared to spending. All right. Okay. Yeah. All right. And so stay tuned. We'll get we'll get that answered. Both your questions after our next caller and Sharla
Salam Alikum to our next caller, welcome to the show. What's your name and where you calling from?
Hello Salam aleikum. wa barakato brother also a question for us today. Okay, my question is related to childhood. Okay, I just want to call from why we actually raise our index finger during childhood.
And the reason for it or is it because
we found the profit doing it? We actually also do it.
Alright, tradition, or is there any particular reason for it? All right. Thank you so much for your call, brother. May Allah bless you to look online.
Alright, so our last caller from our queue, Salam Alikum. To our caller, welcome to the show. What's your name? And where you calling from?
What's your name?
Of course, that's completely fine. And what's your question?
I have a son who's 22 years old. And he decided he doesn't want to be Muslim anymore.
And I was a Muslim many beautiful, where I can get help for my son, so far had no luck. It's been two years now. Generally, if you guys can help me somehow.
Is there anywhere that you can
get help from or someone can talk to me or
shift you and ask any questions, or whatever that is, what area you based in. Sr.
All right. Thank you so much for your call. Thanks to all of our callers. We'll get started with answering your questions right now. For everyone else. We're going to be here for another 10 minutes. So if you'd like to call or send your questions, you'll find all the information coming and going at the bottom right side of your screen inshallah. So our first question from our queue chef is
the brother explained that he has no knowledge of Islam, and he's lost his sight completely since coming to the UK. What do you advise he can do to learn about Islam?
Say I mean
First of all, we have to look at the different ways that people learn
because of the challenges that the brother has at the moment, and he's going to rely on audio learning, and there's different ways that people can study religion through audio, whether that's through the social media, you can still, you know, listen to different platforms. On social media, you can, obviously there are, there's the channel here, where you have the opportunity to ask your questions about particular matters of your religion. So if there's a particular well known, trusted, and well known, scholar, that you can listen to the lessons, focus on things like belief, and focus on trying to listen to the Quran, try to recite the Quran as much as you can, and establish the
obligations. If you are a person who wants to start from scratch, if you like is to learn or to know what Allah subhanaw taala is obligated upon you. And that is to have a correct and clear belief in in Allah subhanaw taala, worship Him alone, call upon Him alone, turn to Him alone, to establish a five daily press. This is extremely important in the times, okay. And if you have wealth, like the pillars of Islam, if you have wealth and it needs to reaches the threshold of the nisab, you pay it once a year, to foster a month of Ramadan, if you're able to do that you're healthy, there's nothing preventing you from doing that. And if you have the ability to perform Hajj. And then on top of that
you try to
supplement your learning with subjects about the dead judgement about the angels about the prophets in the books, articles of faith. So you take this slowly, but establishing your obligations that what you should be doing on a daily basis is extremely important. And to take from trusted, well known people of knowledge is important. And Allah subhanaw Gnosis I know my answer is very genuine, it's very short. But again, now platform is very limited in answering things like that. But May Allah make it easy for the board, and we hope to hear from him again.
Thank you, Chef. Before we move on to our next caller, we'll get through one more question. And the next question is, Is it okay, when it comes to moon sighting?
To follow a particular countries as there are some people say it's invalid to do so. Yeah. So
there are valid opinions to say that there are local sightings, and then there are international sightings local. So it means that every local area will depend on their own citing locally, and whenever they see or they don't see the moon, that's when they're gonna start and finish their fasting. And then there is a legitimate view to say that we're any Muslim country, any Muslims they see on earth, then they will follow them. They are legitimate opinions. Okay. So if anyone starts rubbishing your that opinion, has is not correct, and is not right to say such a thing. Okay. And the idea of following Saudi following Saudi, it's following you know, if you like,
following MK, or following on Saudi, whatever the case may be, and the vast majority of Muslims will know. And it may be argued otherwise. But then it may be argued the other way that the vast majority of Muslims they follow the citing international citing those goes on. That doesn't mean to say that, if all the Muslims of the UK they are in agreement, we're going to do locally Bismillah Toka not Allah will do that no problem.
For whatever reason, you know, it's another another simple issue that Muslims find, go to great lengths to find a way to argue and to differ and to go their own way. And not only to make just two opinions, but somehow find a third opinion.
Mahler remove this if they love it, and allow us to unite them. Sure. Thank you so much. With that, we'll go to our next caller salamati console. Caller Welcome to the show. What's your name on where you calling from?
My name is this guy's from Bedford Hello. All right. Welcome to the show. What's your question for us today?
I want to ask a question that that is how we demonstrate about when we are so helpless like in Afghanistan they were 200 athletes.
Alright, and if we could ask this this it's cool back and just to avoid any political references while asking you questions on the show, and then we can get we can get that answered for you inshallah. Thank you so much. So chef, our next question is,
Is he okay to eat meat that's been stoned but not killed yet then slaughtered? Okay.
It is, for an if an animal has been stung but not killed in under the slaughtered after? Yes, it is permissible. However, I do take issue with an analogy that was given to the brother design law here. And that the example was given that when a human
goes for an operation, and as a general anesthetic, that that is better. Of course, we said the person doesn't feel any pain. So based on that, we would say it's recommended, or you would understand it's recommended to stun the animal. And we don't say that it's not recommended. And it wasn't the practice of the or encouraged by
The profit illustration to certain animals, but if it is done this is acceptable, okay.
But it is not recommended to do any of that the the analogy that was given you would understand that it is something because, of course, you know, to have general anaesthetic and it's more than recommended, it's you know, no one wants to have a major operation without, you know, being put to sleep is not the same. So, I take I take issue with the analogy because not correct to say that because you would understand that it's recommended to stand the animals, and it is not
the example to say that it brings about pain, no, held the profit unnecessary. And we told in Islam how an animal is sacrificed, it should be caused no pain, and it is over in seconds.
If it is done, the sun is down to the animal doesn't die, it is permissible for you to eat.
Thank you so much. Our next question is from our brother who called and asked why do we raise our index finger during Tisha hood? Is this a sunnah or what is the meaning of it? Okay, so the movement of the finger in Tushar hood while sitting in the prayer isn't a matter which that there are many different views amongst the scholars, how that actually is manifest how it is showed, there are those who say you point with it, there are those who say you don't move it at all, it just stays down there are others who say it goes up at a certain point part and then it goes down. Some say moves a slight movement, okay. There are all different evidences that they use to come to these
Some of them are acceptable interpretations based upon sound, a hadith, some of them are based upon, we will say, if you like a hadith, which are not strong Hadith, but nonetheless, it's there are men who have those opinions. And if a person follows that, that then they're entitled to that.
But it does seem to, if you like,
it is I'm not saying as it is, though, my opinion is that even though we have all of these differences of opinion and the opinion of Waseem is the final one, it is the correct one. Allah azza wa jal knows best I mean, there are acceptable differences of opinion on this. Okay, but
it seems that there is a pointing and the movement of the finger albeit quite small.
There's Hadith which is the Muslim Imam Muhammad, which is some of the earlier might have said this hadith and Hassan, that the moving of the finger is harder on the shaytaan than the,
the hitting him over hammer. That is what little thing for a person after the start, then, you know, slamming their finger down as though they're hitting the Shatter, because that's not what is to be understood. But making do during the Tisha hood is on saying things correctly, and that the shahada is the most important thing. Thank you. Sure. We only have around a minute left for the next question. It's about the mother who called about her son who she says left Islam. She had sought, she's she sought help for the past two years. They live in the area of Oxbridge. Yeah, I mean,
it's unfortunate, but it is the life that sometimes you know, Allah, he had a Manisha Ubuntu Masha Allah azza wa jal guides and misguides whom He wills. So what I would say is that you go to your nearest Mudcats, your nearest major masjid or Tao organization and explain them to me explain to them and if he's willing to come and speak with them, or they can even get some material to be given to him, then maybe that's a possibility or maybe contacting the channel externally other than this channel other than this particular program to find out if any services or places can can be offered to the system eligible guide abroad and guide us all and make it easy for us. So
thank you so much for being with us solution, consume medical law. Just cycle ahead. We'll see you next week. I shall thank you so much for our viewers for tuning in today. And for everyone who sent their questions and cooled us on the phone we'll be back tomorrow at the same time at seven o'clock inshallah. So for now, as salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
