I see these other blessings that ALLAH SubhanA. Allah gave to me clothing and food, what can I then do to help and show others or to show that gratitude to Elijah to others, then therefore, you should be involved in feeding poor people.
Involve yourself in paying for clothes for poor people, give charity for these things. And this way, Chantal, you will truly feel the blessing of what you have, you know, Abdullah, Norma, rhodiola and Herman. Whenever he would break his fast, he would ensure that he broke his fast with the formula and Moroccan, he would break his fast with the poor people, because he would realize Subhanallah and he would see these miskeen these really poor and destitute people that don't have very much, but these people how do they behave, and how they break their force, even they don't have very much but still, they first, he wanted to ensure that he wasn't far away from a white male person living in a
bubble, and that have everything that they need, and that the heart becomes hard, and they don't become, you know, a grateful person. So as Muslims the Hadith I wanted to mention is that Elijah Louella reminds us about the importance of
where all of all sustenance in all its forms where it comes from, and that it is Allah subhanaw taala solely, and how we should be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala and grateful and then act upon them.
So they'd love to share thank you so much for your reminder,
I'd like to remind our viewers at home that everyone watching at home that we're live on Oski man if you'd like to ask any questions, which you may have about Islam, then this is the chance to do that. We'll live here for the next hour and the numbers call is oh two or 35150769 Otherwise, you can also send your questions our WhatsApp number, email address and
Facebook Live stream if you're tuned in right now at the comment section, or you can leave your question inshallah. So, before we move on to our questions, as we've been doing for the past few months, I think I think it's important to just keep reminding ourselves that Ramadan is around the corner. So it's the fifth of April now and Ramadan is due to be either on the fifth or sixth of May. So we're a month away or a month a few days away from Ramadan. Could you share give us a reminder or where should we be right now in terms of our thinking while feeling that whilst Ramadan is just a few weeks away, so
you know, how long ago is that we were saying suppose six months or Ramadan you know, the pious predecessors would be thinking about preparing themselves for Ramadan six months in in advance and here we are approximately one month 30 days or so, before the blessed month of Ramadan. So, what I would say is that you know, time is is passing and is not very long to the month of Ramadan number one, make dua ask Allah subhanaw taala that he gives you life and that you reach the month of Ramadan because there is so much Bala carrot and hierarchy goodness and blessings and Pasenadi and reward in that month which you do not find in any other month. So ask Allah subhanaw taala that you
are part of it and that you are alive and that you can worship Allah subhanaw taala in that blessing month so from now everyday say oh Allah grant me life that I'm alive in Ramadan don't take it for granted. Okay. The prophet Elisha Some said that death is closer than the shoe laces on on your on your on your feet that can come to us at any time. So
this is number one number two, is that what is it that you are looking forward to in the month of Ramadan fasting so that we know that the prophet Elisha Mr. Fast extensively in the month of Shabbat, okay, so fasting this month is as much as you can.
However, it is not allowed, we should not fast the two or three days just before the month of Ramadan, so we separate the months there's no continuation of fasting.
Also, we know that Ramadan is the month of Quran.
So we focus on my recitation. So that my one of my goals is maybe to finish the Quran in the month of Ramadan. Maybe I've, my expectations are more than that. Maybe to finish it twice in the month, whatever you can do. Okay. So stop practicing your recitation. So that reading one, or one part of the Quran per day doesn't maybe take you one hour, if you become more prolific and veteran, your presentation. Maybe you can finish wonders. 20 minutes, 25 minutes, maybe depending on your recitation. So start that. Also start thinking about attending the masjid or intending to you know, pray Taraweeh with the people, bettering your relationships with with Muslims. If you can get
involved in some other good, how you can prepare yourself for that. These are the kinds of things you should prepare for.
Thank you, chef.
You mentioned which is always
Talk about an older coming up chef. And if we know from many Hadith that Ramadan is, and the Quran that Ramadan is a very valuable month to the believer, now if someone chef is not thinking about Ramadan, and what a great great loss it would be to not take care of it and not do the right actions that are to be done to make sure you make the most out of it. Can we say that
an individual who's feeling this or is has lost their priorities, or lost kind of track of, of life, or where they should in terms of where their mindset should be, because we can get caught up in so much. So, you know, it's a month away from Ramadan. Maybe there's somebody's brother or sister at home, and they say, oh, only a month away. Let me see the timetable.
And the first thing they're looking for is how many hours off the first
and then they say, oh, a long time. And then they begin to get a bit afraid or worried and it's going to be I don't think I'm going to enjoy it and things like that. We'd say that. Don't start looking at Ramadan as just a matter of time just to stay away from food and drink, okay.
But rather, that's just a stepping stone.
That's not the goal. The goal is not just for you to stay away from food and drink, that's just a means for you. It's like a bridge and that you want to reach the other side. And the other side is that you want to be in a state of or raise yourself in Taqwa.
You know Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah Allah Quinta tekun
Fasting was prescribed upon you so that you can gain and become more God conscious. You have consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala more, that impacts your your thinking, that impacts your worship, that impacts your speech that impacts every part of your life. That's what fasting can do for a person. Okay, so listen, maybe listen to a lecture about the benefits of Ramadan, how to prepare for Ramadan, there are many trusted and I would say don't just go to a search bar and look for anything and you find anybody. Maybe ask a good friend, you know, maybe who has knowledge of good speakers, trusted speakers,
people of knowledge, not just anybody, because you could find anybody.
You ask, you know, trusted people. So who should who would you advise listening to about you know, preparing myself for tomorrow? And it's not too late? No way. It's not too late. You have you have time and Charlotte, Anna. And these are the kinds of things you could do. Well, thank you. Sure.
Our next question is from WhatsApp The question is a cinema alikoum if you are traveling a lot of time, can the whole NASA be combined and pray that home before traveling just like lock it.
So if a person intends to travel,
the travel is allowed to join their press, and somebody is allowed to shorten their press. But you should only do that. Once you have left the outskirts of the city that you are living in. The Prophet la Susan would not shorten his prayer nor join his prayer while living in Medina. But once clsm had gone beyond the outskirts of Medina, then he would because he's no, Elissa, he's going on a journey. He would then begin shortening and joining his press but not while in in the city. Okay, so you don't do that. Only when you've gone beyond the outskirts of your city. Like LA has your thank you so much for that. Thank you so much to everyone who's tuned in so far. We're going to take a few
minutes break as usual also that we'll be back to continue with our show. So until then, stay tuned with Salam alikoum Allah How to Buy well bakit
Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back to today's Ask you man show we're going to be here for another 30 minutes live on ASCII man. If you have any questions brothers and sisters then give us a call on Oh 203-515-0769 Otherwise you can send us your questions our WhatsApp number email address and if you're tuned in on Facebook right now then you can use the comment section to leave your question there and we'll get we'll put it forward to the chef inshallah Salam Alikum. Chef Welcome back. Welcome back after the break.
We're going to move on to our next question from WhatsApp. And the question is,
can mess be done over ordinary socks
so concerning wiping over the sock, there are different types of socks.
There is from an Islamic perspective there's wiping over the leather sock, which there is a consensus agreement over is allowed to wipe over another sock.
However, a leather sock may not be suitable for normal where when you were going to work or kind of uni are going to go on about your everyday business. So there are the socks, the socks that are made out of cotton made out of wool made of polyester made of other materials
is it allowed for me to wipe over their socks? Here some of the element have differed.
And the discussion is a long discussion
as to bringing the evidences Yes, you can no you can't or if you can, what type of sock Are you allowed to wipe over.
So to keep it simple, if it is allowed for you, and bearing in mind that there are and we respect the other views,
but it is allowed for your shadow to Allah to wipe over a sock which is made from the materials that you find in wherever you buy your socks from supermarkets or you buy them from designer shops or wherever you want to buy your socks from. As long as it is a material which is not see through. You don't see the skin underneath. So if it is the case that you wear these kind of socks, it's allowed for you to wipe over the top of the socks and alasa
psychological shift. Would you like to return salon to a few of our viewers from Facebook who said Salam alikoum Valley concern, go to our next question Schiff is from Facebook, and it's I would like to ask the Islamic ruling on monkey
is it permissible to be eaten as meat? I'm from Sierra Leone, and almost all Muslims are not allowed to eat the monkeys. Please help me out on this issue. Okay, so concerning the eating of a monkey, more correct opinion is not permissible
to eat, killed or monkey. It is not permissible for you to eat and whatever regardless of
The way that slaughtered isn't allowed for us to eat.
So our next question is from WhatsApp. And the question is, is it permissible to recite the Quran when you don't have to do for example revising in the car whilst driving? And what about using a phone must have without too. Okay says two questions. So the first question is reciting the Quran. Without although how that limits it's allowed for you to do that no problem eyeshadow Tyler.
The second one is using an application on your phone.
Is it a requirement for you to
to be in a state of limbo? Because the no one opinion or the majority of scholars that you shouldn't pass the most half accept you in a state of Ohio? Does the phone take the ruling? If you're reading from most half application on your final say notice? It does not. It is a phone not almost half. So therefore it's not a must for you to be in a state of adult while reading from almost half application on your phone. Allah. Thank you chef. Our next question is Can one pray Witter before going to sleep and then offer to head good in the middle of the night as one may be at risk of missing with if he waits to do it after 200 As he may not wake up in the middle of the night? Okay.
So if a person prays salata waited after the salata Asia and they pray early and then they go to sleep and then they wake up at some point in the night and they want to offer some clearer more Layton tahajjud some night prayer
then by by all means you can pray after salata, Witter.
You would not bear in mind you would not pray so a lot of witted again, because the Prophet Elisha told us that there was no praying of two winters in one night and they were ternifolia
so if you want to offer some even number of records, you pay two or four or six or eight or 10 as you like, it doesn't have to be 20 It doesn't have to be 10 Whatever matter you select whatever is easy for you, then you can do that on the hotel. Thank you chef Our next question is what do are and good actions shall I do for for a abdominal surgery
I do abdominal surgery I don't know there's not a specific to our law and I don't know for abdominal pain but you know the drugs in general
that you can make for pain. When you make an opiate upon yourself you can you can hold your hand in the place of of where you're feeling the pain and you can say Bismillah and you can recite Surah Fatiha and other drugs that you find concerning for person is as feeling pain alleged we can realize you have to kill just like last year so to come back to Ramadan now Chef
what now it might be hard for some of us to be able to balance our schedule for Ramadan with fasting feeling tired coming back from work tired some of us go for Tata we and then the Iftar is I mean the Sahara is quite early as well now so there's only a few hours between coming back from Tata we're resting and then so what isn't probably just two three hours after that, how do you advise
us to have good balance during the days of Ramadan and you know being able to also feel good that we are taking part in Ramadan Sure.
So if we can,
if I can categorize Ramadan into two parts
if I say that there is the first 20 days of Ramadan, and then there is the last 10 days of of Ramadan.
Now Ramadan should be treated almost like like a marathon. It's a person doesn't want to kind of burn themselves out in the first week of Ramadan and then they feel is too much away and then they don't go and this is something that you do find.
I've noticed at the beginning of Ramadan, the first two or three days the messages Masha Allah
pretty much full. Other messages, they remain full Alhamdulillah but then maybe you find there's a slight
lowering of the numbers after about a week. Okay, you get used to fasting and maybe even what I've been going for a week and you know, I'll take a rest now. What I would say is that, you know, in preparing for the mother and do that what is comfortable for you? Well, I know it's comfortable for you to stay at home and relax and don't do anything that's not the kind of come from talking about. The kind of comfort I'm talking about is that you're pushing yourself
and that Ramadan is not like any other month. You shouldn't know days the days of Ramadan shouldn't be like other days. So you're fasting in the daytime. And even if you have to attend the masjid, and your time schedule differs of course. But even if you pray some time in the masjid if you can't stay the whole time
You stay for a part of it. Allah azza wa jal knows your situation.
And like as you know your situation, if you know you can do more and you don't do it, then expect what you have done. If you know that you can spend the whole night or not necessarily the whole time praying to Allah, but you spend to a foreign event, and then you go, don't expect the same reward as a person who can stay and thus stay to the end. So try to be balanced, try to be fair with yourself. But focus on the last 10 And that doesn't mean don't do anything for 20 days and then just push yourself at the last 10 Okay, but of course the last 10 are the most important because you're looking for Leila, Takada. If you've got any holidays at work or university, try to, well, you can't
choose your holidays at university or college. But if you're at work,
you know, try to arrange some of your holiday time during the last 10 days, maybe you can make some editing, if this is where you can prepare yourself and you know, Allah make it easy for you. So don't over exert yourself, that you burn yourself out, but try to be as consistent as you can. So thank you so much. Our next question is Can I can I Muslim man and the woman exchange knowledge one to one in a private conversation?
They're not married.
Yeah. So these kinds of things, the situations
really kind of depends on the setup, if you know if, if you may have a setting where you have a
a mum or share or things like that, and sometimes he needs to be asked questions.
You take the necessary precautions, he should take the necessary precautions, ensuring that
no fitna occurs, but if she needs to ask him a question she you know, she can ask him a question if she needs to. But take the necessary precautions said that there was no fitna if it's a question, ongoing lessons and the rules and things like this. No doubt fit and will become about they should avoid doing that. It's like law Fisher. Our next question is from Facebook. The question is, what is the correct order? If you miss salats, from Fudger, all the way down to Azure. So the whole five silhouettes? I'm not sure. exactly the question. Yeah. Should we prayed in order?
I don't know. Maybe the person slept the whole day. It can happen. Okay, if that was the case, and you woke up
in the evening, Michelle, you slept for a long time but you pray the President or you prayed for God and then Doha and then acid in the market and then you pray Asia?
Our next question is snow Alikum Sure.
Is it correct to marry only for the sake of getting rid of our desires?
So any act of a murder and you know marriage is an act of worship, it should be done for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala
but along with that, there will be some you know worldly kind of kind of gain with it. If you have a strong desire then handily you have relationship with your spouse and then you're able to lower your gaze and control your your desires from this respect. What is a buddy should you know solely first and foremost, it should be for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and as we know that you know, getting married is is completing half of your religion in that there are certain things that you can only do when married to a low tide Island. Thank you for your answer. Thank you so much to everyone who's tuned in so far. We're going to take a short break for a few minutes and then we'll be back
inshallah for now. cinematical bla
I said I want to leak and welcome to my work. So welcome back to Friday's ask you man show live on us on demand channel. We're going to be here for another 30 minutes in Charlotte to take your questions brothers and sisters and get them answered for you authentically according to the Quran and Sunnah. So if you have any questions, give us a call now on otoa 35150769. Otherwise, you can send your questions to our WhatsApp email. And if you're watching along on Facebook, leave your question at the comment section. And we can put that forward to the chef as well as cinema I'm sure he'll come back after the break. Why don't
we move on to our next question.
Our next question is how do we how do we understand the importance of the Quran? In the month of Ramadan?
So, we know that
we add importance or focus on I should say focus on the importance of the Quran, in the month of Ramadan in that Allah subhanaw taala reminds us shall Ramadan and let the unzila V Hill Quran orderliness that Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed as a guidance to mankind, mankind. So it is
a very important line of work for or for us to ponder over. Why Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this fact to us
that the month of Ramadan is the month the Quran was revealed. Therefore, this is something I need to focus on. I need to you know, we know that the fact that Gibreel Ali Salam would go through the Quran with the Prophet Airism in the month of Ramadan.
Again, it shows an emphasis on the Quran and likewise he find the companions
with terminal photogra Delano, that he would join all the Muslims to pray behind one Imam we look up the line who and they put it away and they will go through the Quran everybody could hear the Quran.
So the month of Ramadan is especially important for us to recite and ponder over the Quran in the Allah azza wa jal reminds us about that. The Prophet alayhi wa salam was revise the Quran a month of Ramadan, the scholars and the Sahaba and the scholars who came after them would likewise focus on the Quran in the month of Ramadan is something we need to remind ourselves of. This is why it's important for us now. Sigler who should
thank you for your answer. Our next question is
Is it permissible for husband to listen to his parents at all times and neglect his wife?
So there should be no clash really?
The husband should be wise enough to prioritize the needs of both his parents and his wife. It shouldn't be a state where I'm going to ignore the needs of my wife or negate the needs of my my parents.
But you you do your very best for both. And Allah subhanaw taala did not reveal to us
a deen which by fully fully fulfilling the obligation state clashes with other people.
Thank you chef
Onyx Christian already scanned it before we asked him about cryptocurrency and why it just made me smile is because we you know, we always go through these these phases when this trend dies and something else goes. It's just funny thinking about because I'm about a year ago we were this was a hot topic. Yeah, sure. Yes. panela. So
the question is, is cryptocurrency where 50% of each coin is secured against the gold Halal against Is that making sense? It makes sense. Good halal, or haram as halal or haram? Given the gold is a tangible asset? Okay, so with regards to the cryptocurrencies,
after speaking with 100 lm, the people and knowledge concerning the Bitcoin and the other ones, the rules they gave us is that you should not deal with it.
And you shouldn't deal with it for a number of reasons, because of its
administrar, which is the lack of being settled as a currency where it came from it's built upon. And
for that reason, you should avoid it.
Now, it seems to have and I was unaware of this particular point, but now seems that because previously wasn't based on any kind of supported or held up by gold or something like this, it was its own independent value, and it fluctuated up and down. Now the second half of it is supported, it's worth its value with gold. So the other half isn't, which still leaves us in a situation where
there's lots of question marks concerning that. So therefore, the what the alumni have said concerning this essentially wouldn't change. Because of the the unknown quantity of really what we're dealing with
psychological shift. Our next question is a Salam alikoum what advice? What Islamic advice would you give our sons and daughters about the knife crime going on?
This is an extremely important question SubhanAllah. And it is something that is affecting.
And we shouldn't say this is just affecting Muslims, this is affecting all communities, across the board, it seems that nobody really is safe. From
all one particular group is targeted, it could be anyone. You know, here in London, I think there was an incident where there was an individual randomly stabbing people, it seems that handed at the individual was caught. But before that happened, there were five completely innocent bystanders just walking down the street, walking down and they were stabbed. I think I heard as well that it is unfortunate Subhanallah, that one had been paralyzed, and that the spinal cord was damaged so much, I don't think the person will be able to walk again versus just
something which is really Subhanallah it is.
The situation is really chaotic concerning this.
And not only, you know, trying to catch these individuals, and bringing them to whatever justice is in the land, is not only your priority, but you need to go to the root of the issue. So why are these things happening? Why is it that the youth feel that it is necessary to resolve
their own problems, whether it's postcode kind of battles, or gangs, or for other reasons, why are they involved in these things? What has caused them to be part of, but we know that human beings as part of our nature, we want to be belong to something, but why do they? Why do they why are they drawn to kind of gangs, which are my energy and then involved in drugs, you know, and involved in
vices of all different types. So each community has a responsibility and because each society is made up of different communities, so if there is a positive kind of input that the Muslims can have, concerning the young Shabaab, not only speaking to the youth that come to the masjid, because they come to the masjid and someday we will you would assume that you know, that not may be involved in those things, but we're talking about the Muslims who don't come to the masjid, who in you know, on street corners, or you know, in their local area. These are all
As we need to engage with these guns we need to speak with. So how do we reach out to them? And this is why it's important for for because they all have parents, they've just popped up from nowhere, they will have parents, they will have family members, how do we engage with the Muslim community, in ways engage with these families to then in turn, try to get in contact with these with these young children. And this is something which needs long term planning.
And it needs
it needs investment. It probably needs investment, whether it's from local government,
or national government and the setting up things which will deter young Shabaab, from getting involved in these things, when they're at the age of seven, and eight and nine, and they're fairly young. And you can influence them positively. What are we pulling them towards? Because at a certain age, and it differs from one age to the other, maybe it's 11 or 12, or 13, or 14, something happens during the life of that person, they decide to take another path.
And what is attracting, attracting them to that to take that path? We need to kind of understand the you know, we don't want to kind of like if you've got a problem with an issue, you don't want to stop dealing with the peripheral issues. You want to deal with the core, the root issue, why are the young youth and the youngsters getting involved in these things? Okay. And you know, it needs research, needs investment, and it needs all communities to pull together to come together to deal with the situation.
Thank you, Zach Latasha,
you mentioned two mosques at the beginning. You mentioned mosque sight word, children, these kids might come but then there's those kids that are out there we need to reach out to
we see that our mosques can be very
just within the mosque didn't didn't come out of the mosque. The mosque thing about the community committee comes in to
build mosques seem to stay within themselves. How was this the model of the Prophet's mosque Ali Salam or how was that in comparison to this? Yeah. So the role of the masjid primary role of Masjid is it is a masjid and by the word when is a place of frustration. It is a place of a burden. It's a place of worship. That's its primary use. But added to that there are other things it is a place of learning. It is a place of Latvia, it is a place of upbringing people, it is a place of so many things and the message of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was used in in many ways to to impact the community, by that what is suitable for that community is not just like this is the weight. Of
course, there are certain fundamentals that we will all follow. But depending on the dynamics of the community, and that society, what I mean by that is, one society may differ from another society, whether you're living in Africa, or you're living in, maybe in China, or you're living in other parts of Asia, or even within Africa itself, and Northern Africa or Southern Africa or middle Africa, western and eastern Africa, they all have different kinds of
communities, that Masjid should try to tailor itself to the mindset in that community and how we can best bring them in. Now living in in Muslim lands is maybe you know, it's easier for you do have an impact because the whole society is Muslim of biologics and Muslim. As for non Muslims and non western countries, maybe it's something we should can we can discuss further now. So Lakeisha thank you so much. Can we come back to that after the break? Please? Thank you so much. Thank you to everyone who's tuned in so far, we're going to take our last break for the show and then be back for the last 10 to 15 minutes inshallah for now salamati
bla bla, Bla.
Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back to today's ASCII men show where we're going to be here for another 10 to 15 minutes for the last part of our show inshallah. So if you have any questions, brothers and sisters give us a call on Oh 235150769 Otherwise you can send your questions to our WhatsApp number and email address inshallah cinematic Bucha Welcome back by the officer break, and before the break shift, we were speaking about the role of a mosque in a community and we will come back to that topic, Okay, shall thank Bismillah Baraka lovey, so we find that the the masjid of the prophet Elisha sort of at his time has maximum impact on the community, and was
utilized in the best way for the people at that time. Okay? Now, we take that, that model, meaning the masjid should have maximum impact on the Muslim community, and should serve the needs of that community, whatever the needs of that community are. And as I mentioned, from one place to the next, their needs will differ. Okay. So in many places, and this is, again, it's difficult to generalize, because you find even within one country in the north of England and the south of England, for example, in London, the needs of the Muslims are different. Okay, so I can't just suddenly say, Western countries and Messiah, but there are certain things which pretty much I would say is that
wherever you are, that should be applicable. So let's start with
speaking with the Muslims and what is the biggest gathering you have in the week? What is it? Juma? Right, this is the single biggest gathering you have on a weekly basis where the doors are mashallah packed. And Muslims come to listen to the hotbar. This is the list of one opportunity that the masjid has in the week to deliver a beneficial beneficial message to the community.
And also is an opportunity to allow everybody to see, this is what the masjid is about. And this is what we can do for you. And it's what you can have is what you can have here. So a masjid, that does not fulfill that and allow its community fulfill the needs of the community because sometimes they must do things
assuming that the masjid will go through, but this is our plan, this is what we're going to move forward. And they instill and they set up a plan which is not in sync with its community at all. And at the end of the year, if they have a review or an annual meeting, we did so many things and everybody can pat themselves on the back and say mashallah, we did this which looks great Mashallah. But did that really benefit the community one that does the community need that is rather important, very important that the masjid or those who are have responsibility of masajid to know their people, and this is exactly what Allah subhanaw taala says regarding the messengers warmer RSL Nam Yatra was
ruling in Belize, Nicole Mihaela up in Allahu Allah azza wa jal, so we didn't send any messenger to any people, except he spoke with their language, so he could make things clear for them. The Prophet alayhi wa salam was sent to the Arabs, the deen of Islam is to the whole of mankind. But the time that the prophet Elijah was alive, he was able to address and speak to the Arab people who spoke the Arabic language. Okay. Likewise, Musa alayhis salam and Isa la Salam, they spoke the language of their people. We take we should take the same principle that when we are addressing our communities, and we should be aware, what are the majority what is our message what kind of Muslims are many
communities? What What are the demographics of our community? Are they revert
or the maybe Somali background, or the Pakistani background or the Bengali background? or the whatever the background is, maybe it's many backgrounds. So then how can we then engage with these different communities, the different services that we have in the masjid, may be more suitable for this type of community more than that one? Okay. This is the role of the Master, this is the role, I'm gonna say the masjid or the master itself is those bricks and mortar, it's not going to do anything. So therefore, it's those people who are responsible for the masajid these people are centers, they have the responsibility of
and it is a great responsibility.
It is a great responsibility that if given to somebody, they should feel as real concern and a responsibility. Imagine that you have the responsibility. And you think, Am I able to fulfill that?
Because you'll be questioned about that. Because you have an entire community in that area, who is in need of the masjid, whether they know it or not. They need the masjid. And they need that Masjid to be
fulfilling and serving their needs. Because that is the role of the masjid you are the people involved in the masjid. You are responsible as you are teaching people, you are the ones who are going to help people don't wait for them, you know, their needs, you're involved with them. And then in turn, you can take things for it's a long discussion, and maybe this can be on another show that we do know exactly, thank you. It's very beneficial now. So you know, like those responsible with the messages are, you know that they are few, and so many are the people that attend the message. So we've covered that now to cover the other side. How can you person just generally who attends a
message and stuff be Be of good?
Good to his local Masjid just to put it simply Mashallah. Very good. So, what I would say is that, I don't want to Yeah, exactly. Sisters, I don't want to focus on massage it okay. What I'm talking about is it could be any Islamic institution, it could be a charity, for example, right? So if a charity is
you know, asking for donations and gathering donations and spending the donations in a,
in a weld in a way that's not really been studied and done properly, okay, not utilizing the money in the best way, then they're responsible for that. So therefore, it's upon that charity to look at where the needs are, and then therefore support those projects in the very best way because you need to prioritize at times. What I would say is that for mousseline or those people who attend their masjid, is that that Masjid is as yours as it is everybody's nobody owes the masjid is House of Allah subhanaw taala. Of course, there are people who are given responsibility over the running, which is their their responsibility. Nobody thinks should we consult taking over and revolutionising
setting up revolution taking that is not actually, okay, they have the responsibility, and that should be respected. But maybe a person can find out, maybe can suggest things
to the management of their masjid or of the of their particular charity to say, Listen, there is this project I know is usually quite successful, or I have experienced in this, maybe offer your services,
it could be on a voluntary basis. And you could start maybe start sort of voluntary and maybe blossoms in stocks into something else. Okay. So these are the kinds of things that you know, people in the community
that they can do, because there are times, there's always what they should be doing for us, they shouldn't domestic, you know, they need to do this, this, we need to do that. But also you need to do things as well, it goes both ways. Okay. And that's what makes a successful community is that everybody is pushing in the direction, you don't find one part of the community just waiting to receive when we want with hands like this, but rather their hands are like this ready to go forward or ready to punch or ready to grasp something and move forward. Okay, so this is how the Muslim community should be, we will have different responsibilities, we will have different abilities, and
then we should come together and speak about how we can help one another. Because I can Officer Thank you so much for that. I think it's very, I think, you know, first of all, it starts from our salah, of course, you know, as Muslims to be to be well enough in ourselves and our event to be of benefit to first ourselves or those around us. But then I think after that it starts being how you healthy part of your community.
And see it's important to get involved and to have that feeling of wanting to get involved because in the end, these messages are built on the you know, charity, either just been given or by others or given by those who are running it. And it you can't be someone who comes and just benefits from it and walks away. He has to be part of giving back to the community. So
our next question is slowly come back.
Can I give support to my brother who has very little income and has
As kids also,
if you have any close member of family who was in need, then I push you to give whatever charity you can to help them. Of course, as you add your brother, and giving charities are highly recommended act, especially for those or close in relation to you. Yes. So by all means, give whatever you can to them, may Allah make it easy. So, you know, the
sadaqa has become something, for example, where it we understood it, maybe is the correct way, maybe not. That's why I'm asking you, we understand it as giving it giving it to people that are very
badly in need. And they usually strangers, that's become the ideal, my idea anyway.
So is there a difference between the sadaqa Islamically that, for example, a man works very hard to provide for his family. So he's not giving that money to himself, there's part of it, he's probably eating, and then a big part of it goes towards benefiting children, his children, his household and so on? And is there is there a difference between that and between feeding someone hungry or homeless, either in your locality or abroad somewhere? Yeah, so
there are obligations upon any individual whose responsibility is from it's an obligation for you to financially support those who are under your, within your honestly, under within your household if you want to put it okay. So for example, the husband is financially obliged to support financially support his wife and children, it's not upon them to do it, he has to do that. And then he has surplus money that he has, okay?
Because you know, the best charities you can have a spend is spent on your family, well, that's something you have to do, you have to financially support them anything extra, then then that's up to you what you want to do with that you can, if you think that it is that you want to spend on your family, give something extra to them, then you can do that. Or if you think is something that you want to spend on, on people who are maybe in a more desperate situation than you then you can do that. It's not as though you're gonna give one charity once in your life, which I'll tell you, you'd have many opportunities to give charity. So whatever time that you're able to do that job the
situation best with a pure intention, and you do it for the sake of allies, you're gonna seeking allies as reward and helping people. And that's what the best thing you could do at that time. Love island. So that brings us to the end of our show. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you so much to everyone who's tuned in today into the show called in or sent their questions.
