Yeah, you have
LTE oh Lord Our LTE was our only m remian
Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shadowfell Ambia he was eating more saline while early he was have age nine. My dear brothers and sisters Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome to Islamic, where you have the opportunity to put your questions in Charlotte Allah will do I'll try our best to answer those questions according to the Quran and the Sunnah. Alhamdulillah we are proximately a third way through this blessed month of Ramadan. And it just feels like you know, maybe just a few days ago and of course it is just a few days but the Time passes so quickly.
That this month is really passing it feels at least at least very, very quickly. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us all, and to make it easy for us all mean. Now I know that many of us and more importantly Allah subhanaw taala reminds us about the importance of this month and its connection with the Quran, shahada Ramadan alidium Zilla via Quran, it is the month in which the Quran was revealed. So it's very important for us in this month, no doubt to have a connection of some sorts with the book of Allah subhanaw taala. But we also think about the other blessings because it is a blessed month. The blessings that are in this particular month and we think about
the vast mercy and virtues that Allah's blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gives to His servants in this month.
So let me just mention three Hadith three narrations and how this of course, goes if you'd like it demonstrates the great advanced Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. Don't forget brothers and sisters, there is the telephone number at the bottom of the screen which you can use to call in to the studio and get through to us and we'll answer your questions insha Allah to Allah.
That the first hadith is the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, so the person will understand Whoever fasts the entire month
with iman seeking Allah's reward than all their previous sins are forgiven. The second hadith is
whoever stands in prayer. Now standing in prayer is a much shorter time than you would possibly be fasting during the day. And Hadith says Men karma Ramadan, whoever stands in prayer in Ramadan, with iman seeking Allah's reward, then all there sees all the previous sins will be forgiven. And then furthermore, Allah subhanaw taala it makes it if you'd like easier for us, Mantra Malay little cuddle, whoever stands on the night avocado panel, which now is that alum is best to exactly when that is, you know, not it's not you know, because in many Muslims, you commonly think, oh, it's the 27th night of Ramadan. Allah knows best. It could well be the 27th it could be another night as
well. So whoever stands on this night in Salah with a man seeking Allah subhanaw taala is reward, then all their previous sins will be forgiven. So these narrations mentioned Subhanallah Whoever fasts the whole month that you mentioned, whoever prays and then prays one particular night, that all their previous sins will be forgiven and your sins of course being forgiven, is a great mercy from Allah subhanaw taala.
That if it wasn't that Allah subhanaw taala obligated upon us too fast this particular month, maybe the vast majority of us would not fast 30 days in a row. And we know that by our previous experiences that fasting this particular month,
allows us to worship Allah subhanaw taala in a way that we don't do in the other 11 months of the year. And the expectation of you to continue what you do in Ramadan after Ramadan is and we have to be realistic with ourselves. You will not worship Allah subhanaw taala the same way. However, we you know, the duras and supplications we make to Allah subhanaw taala
will make it easier for us to continue with some of these acts of API that we established in this month. And it was an example that was given that you know, when a person is training, when they're doing weights or the training for particular sport and things like that, that they put extra weights on themselves, like for example boxer, but they add extra weights to their wrists to their ankles and possibly to their back. So when you're doing punching movements, and they're moving around, they're moving with this extra weight. So they get used to that. And then when the weights are removed, that they feel so much lighter and that they're moving around
is so much easier and they become so much faster in their movement. Okay, similarly you can say that in the month of Ramadan but
We add all these extra
extra worship to ourselves, you know, praying in the night and fasting in the day. So that when sure welcomes the following month, we find ourselves you know, lighter, it's easier to, to offer the act of worship. So it's a blessing from ALLAH SubhanA effect, it's a mercy from Allah subhanaw taala, that we are obliged to fast this month of Ramadan. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to be sincere in our worship, because the origin of all of our worship is and it begins and it stems from the heart, that a person who is just, you know, externally, you know, praying without no presence of mind and heart will have very little reward for their salah. We know that the Prophet alayhi salatu
salam told us that there will be people, when they offer their Salah lives at a level, that they're not rewarded, except for maybe a quarter of their prayer, bonus fall, or even maybe half of the prayer.
And that's not because externally, that they were doing anything wrong. But it could be that internally, that they weren't concentrating in their prayer, that they weren't, you know, offering their prayer out of devotion and love and obedience and humbleness to Allah subhanaw taala, which is an essential part of the prayer and any act of Ayurveda, for that matter, brothers and sisters, that we worship Allah subhanaw taala it should be with complete love, submission, humbleness, with hope and fear, that hope that you're a bird that is accepted by Allah subhanaw taala that you hope for Allah subhanaw taala is your reward, and that he will help you and aid you. And also a fear that
maybe there is something that you are doing which is incorrect, you fail as a rejection, remembering that Allah subhanaw taala says, in MA Taco Bell, Allahu Minella clean, but Allah subhanaw taala only accept from those who are more 13 Those who have piety, who have consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala and who can guarantee that for ourselves, can we say that we are from the 13th and the 14th, of course, or the from the highest levels of the servants of Allah subhanaw taala so there's a constant struggle as a constant striving for us to better our worship, to improve our worship. And that is not only externally
but also internally for us to have a modified to have a knowledge of who Allah subhanaw taala is so we worship Him Subhana we know him through his names and his attributes. And also we find
knowledge of the Quran, knowledge of the words of Allah subhanaw taala is no better description of Allah subhanaw taala than that's what we find in the Quran.
About the sisters the the attachment to the book of Allah subhanaw taala is extremely important and knowing Allah subhanaw taala through the Quran is the primary source for us to understand the Lord and who we are worshipping SubhanaHu wa ala now don't forget brothers and sisters I'm not here to lecture you for 15 or so minutes we welcome your calls and the number Charlotte Allah should be popping up on your screen you can call in there's also the opportunity for you to
message your questions in via the WhatsApp maybe you don't feel comfortable you know calling over the phone or maybe you're in a different country.
So therefore you can send your messages
through the WhatsApp and we can answer them in Schelotto
so we have a question we'll take the first one now. The first one is through the WhatsApp is it permissible for one to donate to their kidney whilst still alive to someone in need
the short answer is yes it is permitted
there's a couple of things that we should know about that but number one, this doesn't involve any finance you're not selling any of your organs that's not allowed.
And secondly, that if you are going to donate part of your body that is not something that your body relies on
for you to live and exist or even have live what is considered a normal way of life. So you can show that you can perfectly live a normal life with with one kidney if that is the case, okay.
And you know, maybe as a family member or something like that, then if you need to do that and there's some compatibility then fine inshallah.
Danna but you couldn't for example can donate your hot takes your life okay. So something that your life depends on then that obviously clearly would not be permitted but the answer is yes it is allowed for you to donate your kidney and Allah subhanaw taala is best
okay, what is the ruling on photography
there are a couple of views on this issue
those who say it's not permitted
draw similarities or say that it comes under the narration in which that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam cursed al Musa wedding those who make pictures. Okay, now what's the profit analysis I'm referring to actually physically drawing pictures or is photography is that something else? Because photography even filming is
a reflection of reality you're not trying to draw something which is similar to reality that so therefore the other view would be that it is permitted because photographs are just a reflection of that what is or in reality and I'm of this view and many many modern day of the scholars have this view as well that focus on photographs are no problem.
There are some kind of sub conditions
or some advices to be taken into consideration when taking photographs is that if you're taking photographs of people or situations that you might want to seek the permission of the other person if that is going to be displayed somewhere else
you may have pictures of people that they don't want to be displayed for this reason you should you should seek their permission okay. But in general the the ruling said it is permitted inshallah we'll lower it
can you break your fast with a non Muslim or with non Muslims
yeah, there's nothing preventing that there's nothing prevent preventing a Muslim you're going to break your fast and the presence of others who happen to be non Muslims then at times this can be for the purposes of a doubt
then there's not a problem it doesn't stop you in terms is your You can't break your fast with non Muslims Well, what stops you
if you're talking about the environment, or what's happening at that time, then of course there's a different discussion. But in essence, there's nothing preventing that and if done correctly, you know, done with some wisdom, then it could be a good source of Dawa okay to explain to non Muslims what it's about for Muslims to fast and maybe is an opportunity for you and whoever's with you to explain what Islam is about Allah
does having a wet dream break your fast
right? What Why is this asked but we know that
there are certain things that do break your fast eating and drinking obviously that breaks your fast and
sexual relationship with your spouse during the day of Ramadan will also nullify the break the fast
so if somebody during the daytime takes a nap, okay, and they have a wet dream is this equal to having relationship with one spouse? Absolutely not. There are two different situations why? Because one that is in your control the other one is not in your control at all. Okay, when you're sleeping you don't have any control over what's happening. So therefore if you had a wet dream while you were fasting
you could absolutely continue fasting you perform your awesome because that's necessary for you to continue praying but the fast is fine inshallah if you to continue and Allah subhanaw taala has missed
Okay, I have been told it is haram to talk whilst in the toilet. Is this true?
Yeah, so it's amongst will say haram. I mean, there is a few says haram but is more correct, who is disliked is highly disliked to speak in the bathroom. When answering the call of nature, there's not a place to, to have conversations or be talking.
And we know that the Prophet alayhi salam on on occasion did not respond to SLM in a respond to giving a Salah that was given to him. While he was answering the call of nature, the person obviously was not clear to them what they did not know.
So the profit lesson did not respond. So therefore while we're in the toil, it's not if you you know, to be answering phone calls and talking in the toilet and things like that they shouldn't be doing that. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best.
Like I wanted to ask regarding discharge, which is other than menstrual and is more brown and light is okay to pray and fast.
So sisters with with issues with
menstrual cycles, there are situations where it's very
it's very black and white and answering it. There's a starting time there's a finishing time, okay, you have also a new continue praying, there's no other discharge and it's very simple to work out six, seven days, eight days per month.
And then other situations where there's a beginning which maybe is clear and then the ending is not so clear. Maybe something occurs during the middle of the month.
So answering these questions at times, is, you know, this is a line and a half sometimes a bit difficult to give a detailed answer. What we'll say is, in general, is that brown and yellow discharge if it occurs in the middle of the month, okay, when you're, you know, everything is normal, you're praying you ignore it, you ignore any brown and yellow discharged in the middle of the month any brown yellow discharge which comes at the end of the census, that is considered to be part of the census. You wait for that to finish okay, then perform awesome and start praying in Charlottetown.
hope that's clear. We have a caller on the line inshallah Taylor. So we'll take the first caller today particular Vika masala Polycom Rahmatullah Wa alaikum. Salam wa patrulla. With regard to strike, how are you today? I'm very well, brother, how are you? I'm humble, humble and not too bad. Jake, I've got question that you've probably heard quite a few times. Now. Do you notice the hold? Do you have to stop ie in the moment or xon? Or can you continue going until sunrise until the white light? Because I've been researching and there was a little bit of confusion. I thought call up today. Just to be clear, I'm back on Santa Monica.
Just one call.
Okay, we'll take this call. This question is particularly important.
So there is there are terms that are used like solar, or Saturday.
But what is this and what constitutes Saturday? Or when do we have it? Okay?
The Arabic Hadith or the pneus of the text of the Prophet alayhi salam says the Sahara for in Ephesus or holy Baraka, okay, the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam said, that have a soul takes hold because indeed in that there is a blessing.
Now, a soul is reflective of the time of when you have it. Okay, so however, because it refers to a particular part of the night, okay.
So Sal, is the very last part of the night where it is darkest before the federal restarts. Okay, let's say the last half an hour before Fajr an hour before Fajr will be the darkest part of the night. This is the holy, this is the very darkest part of the night. And this is the optimum time. okay for you to have a soul. Okay, an hour or even later than half an hour before the other or Fajr. You say, Well, I don't hear that then. Okay. So then you go by the main Masjid in your city, they should have a prayer timetable. Okay, that's what you follow. Okay. You're not to be following, you know, these broadcast text messages from ignorant people saying look out your window and look for
the federal award. Okay, look for the white thread, when it's distinguished from the
black thread of the night and so on. I mean, living in cities, there is light pollution. Yeah, it's impossible for you to do that. The lay people causing confusion. Okay, Lord Lou for Ebola, they were misguided and misguided others. So these broadcast messages about don't follow timetables, or stop before the timetables that frigerator starts by 10 or 15 minutes. This is all nonsense. It's all nonsense. You are permitted to eat and drink up until until you follow the timetable. So let's say for example, now Fajr starts what I know something like 440 Okay, or 435
Up until this time you eat and drink.
Okay, you don't hear that again. But I know when the time hits 435
In the morning, I had to stop eating and drinking. But am I allowed to finish what's in my hand? Am I allowed no, you're not used immediately stop. Something's in your mouth. You spit it out. Okay. So when the timer Fajr enters, you have to stop and is not willing to sunrise. Okay should look which is another an hour and 20 minutes on top of that. Okay, so it's funny all the time. That's when you stop eating and drinking. And Allah subhanaw taala is best. Okay. We have another caller on the line, Shanna Talia Salam aleikum. Wa Rahmatullah.
Well, it was an hour much. Shake. Yes. Your question. Ramadan, curry, Ramadan mubarak.
I've got two questions. My first question is,
for instance, I want to learn some of these new or better I don't know them in the Arabic texts. So I write them and they transmit
then I'm able to memorize and then I was cited. Now I want to destroy that paper or in a Dwa with that paper, okay, do I pair them? Do I bend them? Or do I put them in the recycling bin? For the purpose? Okay. My second question. You have already answered that one I wanted to ask about when as to stop littering for my
Once you is time for fragile, then you should stop. My answer was clear to you.
But it was my answer. Was it clear?
Yes. I understood it to me. I told you said once this forever for Manchester here. This one it was 443. Okay, so once it gets to 443 Stop. What am I seeing? Oh, man, you don't swallow it. That's right. Yeah, the fastest. When you hear the van, then you don't swallow again. Before then you can eat up to that time. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Up until then, or the time of
what you have bought that one. Okay. That's very good. Okay, Shonda. Thank you. So
my question is,
if I'm going for an operation on my mind me, I'll tell you a system. We've got about 25 seconds before we go to a break. If you're able to give me the question in about 10 seconds, go ahead. Otherwise we might have to take care of Yeah. If I'm on the ward, and I can't make up I can't make my wushu well, especially with my legs have agreed to play. Okay. Thank you, sister. Okay, we'll take it. We'll go to a break now Charlotte will try to answer his question after.
After the break. Insha Allah will continue answering because I feel lucky to Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
LD O Lord, our LT O
Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome Back button Sisters of viewers at home to Islamic of
the number Schelotto Allah will be appearing on the screen intermittently throughout the second half of the show where you can call in and put your question to us in Charlottetown. You also have the option of putting questions via WhatsApp which mashallah today is very, very busy on the WhatsApp. So we'll try to get through some of those questions that you have been posting on the WhatsApp.
However, just before the break, this is to call in and had two important questions. We'll answer those first in Charlottetown, as we tried to give priority to those who are calling in
the first one is that there are parts of the Quran which he has
doesn't read well in the Arabic therefore then what she does is to write down the transliteration,
the transliteration, which is writing the Arabic If you like English, English, using each letters to have the English sounds and whatnot.
On a side issue, I would say that trying to read the Quran
through transliteration has some issues. And that is because fundamentally, there are certain sounds in Arabic that you cannot put in English, I understand if you want to put a board or something like that you might put a dot underneath or below the A D for example D H or something like that. And if you're unaware of these kind of rules, or you don't know that then you'd have many mistakes in the recitation of the Quran. So best you can try to learn the Arabic in the Arabic so that you can recite the Quran in the way that was revealed without pretty much free from having these particular mistakes.
So those who rely on the transliteration there are a number of challenges and mistakes concerning that if you have written that which the sister says that she has on a piece of paper how she did then does dispose of that piece of paper.
Because the English is not considered the Quran, then you can just simply you know, shred it if you'd like. Okay, just shred it and put it in the recycling bin. Okay, that's fine for you to do in Charlotte Tyler. Okay. The second question which was said very quickly, because of the shortness of time that we had.
There are times when she's unable to use water or you are labeled Are you able to make TM?
Well, a table is a substitute at times where the person is not able to make although which is the origin there are certain circumstances where you can go to the substitute if number one there is no water, you don't have no choice. So therefore you perform TM or if by using water will cause you harm. Okay, maybe you're ill you're sick is extremely cold by using that word.
would cause you harm, you can go to the substitute. So these two examples show us what that there are times when you make TMM when there's no water, and that's clear.
And there are times when you make tea and there is water available, okay? But these are very, very restricted circumstances concerning when you can make it am okay when you have water available to you.
Now, if somebody is not sick, okay, because sometimes we feel that we have to actually physically rob the area, when we're making the law, it's sufficient for the water bit to be poured over. Okay, it's fine somebody finds it difficult to get all the way down to wipe their feet and things like that.
Then it would be sufficient
and a solution for you just to run your foot if you'd like underneath the tap or to pour the water over the foot okay, wiggling your toes and things like that that is sufficient in order to allow Okay, so you should really make will do in that situation. If you're unable to make although because of the some of the reasons I mentioned before, then yes, TMM is an option for you. And Allah subhanaw taala dismissed.
Okay, so we have
a few questions now on the WhatsApp which will try our best to go through inshallah Tada.
I've been, is it better to put a telawi or paid 200 In the last third of the night?
So tarawih, which is the term that's used to that what is usually offered after salata, Aisha Okay. In the month of Ramadan we pray today we had the messenger document pray or 20 Raka. And 200 is usually referring to clear more later had to this last part of the night.
In general, they're all part of the night prayer, because any Salah that's after Salah Tisha can be considered the night pray Okay. In a situation like this, what's better to preach? Oh, we ought to have good does it have to be either or? I mean, do I have to pray if I pray today? We can't pray 200 And if I want to print a headshot, then I don't pretend oh we know. This is not the case at all.
So I would say what is better is Prater we go to the masjid and pray 200 In the last third as well. That's the best thing for you to do Jonathan at the MO Salah you offer in the night the better for you inshallah to it okay.
You say well, I can only pray one. Well, it's up to you for duckula Mazel Tov to you know realize it as much as you can.
If you want to choose oh I can for whatever reason you have
carved out a situation where I can only do one okay then offer in the last part of the night inshallah Turner.
May Allah azza wa jal, except for my school.
Should I pray today? Are we at home? Or when praying to Allah we at home? Should I recite from memory or read from the most half?
Well, if you have memorized the Quran,
then it's no need for you to recite from the most half. Okay, because you recite from your memory, it would involve less movement. Because you're not carrying the muscle at the most awful you're not carrying a device. So that would involve less movement. So yes, from your memory Hamdulillah. If you have some weaknesses in your memory, concerning what you've memorized than the one leading, it's permitted for them to hold a device or hold the most half when reciting in this one no. No. So ideally without but if there's a need for it, then you couldn't hold it in another town.
The next question is, is it permissible to take a bath while you're fasting? Absolutely no problem.
You can take also a lot you can take a bath. If you're living in a hot country, for example, you want to cool down, you want to take a shower to take a bath. Absolutely problem. Just bearing in mind that as the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said Burley who
fisting Sharky Elantra, Docomo Saaremaa that, you know, when you're making a lot, and you're rinsing and your mouth and your nose, you do that you're exaggerating that to do it properly, except when you're fasting.
Because you ensure that you don't swallow any water
while you're fasting, okay, so, yeah, taking a shower, taking a bath. It's not a problem. I mean, there are some understandings that you can't bath you can't shower, you can't take you can't wear perfume and things like that when you're fasting. All of which are cultural practice has got nothing to do with Islam. There's no problem and you having a boss or perfect perfuming yourself now
does an inhaler break the fast?
Okay, so an inhaler is a difference. Amongst the scholars there are those who are of the view that using an inhaler constitutes something that breaks the fast because it may reach the stomach. There another there was another view to say that it doesn't reach the stomach it dissipates in the chest area. So it's not considered food and drink. And based upon this that the inhaler doesn't break your fast it's a legitimate
difference of opinion, I'm of the view that it doesn't. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best.
How can one know if they're going to gender or inter inter gender? Well,
none of us can know that. You know, when we're living this worldly life, no one can know for sure where you're going, where you're going to paradise you're going to hellfire. We have hope and seek a lot of penalty Allah's mercy that we will be from the righteous people from the victorious people to be from the pious people God conscious try our best to follow the commandments and guidance of Allah subhanaw taala to stay away from that what is prohibited because it's harmful to us. And then we have a good strong hope that we will be from
the people of paradise that we will be entered into paradise without going to hellfire. So in this world the life
we can never know where we're going.
We can never know where we're going but we will strive and struggle and do our best. Okay to strive for the paradise at Charlottetown I'm gonna ask Allah Jalla wa Ala
to make us for the people that join me
Is it permissible to make congregational tour after the Salah
okay, this needs a bit of explaining
but we have some callers on the line. And because we've got some callers we're going to take them now inshallah Tada. So we'll take the caller salam alaikum warahmatullah
Salam Alaikum Yeah, call up please your question
Yes, go ahead
and then when you
you just have to
or you have to
brother your loudspeaker
or you speak that's much better. That's much better. Could you start your question again, please.
When when you want to bring a chart to Joomla or throw it you just pull the Imam probably said anything? Or do you have to resign after the Imam to
normal Okay, good question brother. Thank you so much for your question. Just like a lock it.
May Allah bless you. We have another caller. next caller so that might echo
next quarter, Santa Monica. Whatever slang
word quickly Harshman here.
You mentioned about the
pictures, you're not hanging off of the family and all that. Okay. I'll be your hero. Because for years you have the habit of angling.
Does it differ?
It's very difficult to get out of practice. Second question is about the birthday.
Children always celebrate my birthday is coming from. So what even before futures are why? What is the position? What is the ruling? It's too simple. Their arm instantly started celebrating. So the argument is always even their own words. This has been a tradition like everybody follows
Ravi is standing by to slide
when you go to four, five here in the graveyard Yes, I've heard that if you do salaam to the
coup, they say to their you have come and they can answer and you know all that so it's a bit confusing when they are supposed to be in Ottoman buzzers or whatever.
If you're going through like
angry Islam when it comes to that.
And you will call us
next quarter Salaam Alaikum.
Salaam aleikum next caller.
Go ahead. Yes.
Yes, please. I also ask is Is there allowed for women
to join prayer in their homes when there's no space in the mosques?
For how to join the Imam to play using the last pick of the mosque.
And how are they following the congregation if they're at home
how can they follow their home? How can they do that?
Yeah, do we inform the speaker the last speaker of the mosque
very clear brother.
Briefly Okay. Alonso
we've got another caller Mashallah. All together. Yes next quarter Salam Alaikum
I think my second question Karen when I do put you to well for nucleus plays to my understanding what I was texting is I'm on the example I'm on admission and I can't come out to perform my Bhushan and grill my prayers that if I allow on the bed I can request for water to wash as usual the other upper pass with my with my feet I can't read the script for so what do I do and there is no Muslim in my bed to watch for me all and the second time is what you can move where the equivalent is that and I will embed How do I perform my prayers
Okay, so there's an issue with the direction did you say okay, yeah, I'm lying on bed right okay, that's clear sister.
May Allah make easy for you give you shift. May Allah bless you sister.
My Masha Allah. So we got like
this is a quick fire round now. A few minutes left inshallah Allah will try to answer these questions as best we can. Okay.
First question was concerning the recitation after the Imam So in a situation where the imam in the loud press Okay, we'll make it very simple as we can go into these questions in quiet prayers. Okay. insalata dot NASA. Everybody's going to recite, okay, Imam recites quietly, those who are following they recite quietly alpha to her and another chapter you ought to recite in the loud prayers where the Imam recite Surah Al Fatiha everybody listens. Question is now those who are following do you recite al Fatiha or not? This is a well known difference of opinion amongst the scholars. If you're following your Imam, you're following your particular method and use your stick to sticking to that.
No problem. Okay. The one who asked me there's a legitimate difference of opinion. I am of the view okay, that everybody recites al Fatiha. So the Imam recite Surah 1030 When he's finished, you say quietly to yourself, Okay, and that's it. Okay, those who have another opinion that his recitation is enough for us, that's absolutely fine inshallah Tada, but they want to ask me the question, this is an answer for you Inshallah, tada and those who are not sure on the matter, okay. So you recite after the men barnacle avec. Okay, next question. Concerning photographs. We said that, yes, taking photographs, if they kept on your devices and things like that, then that's fine. However, hanging
them up is a completely separate issue. Majors does not allow you to hang up pictures. Okay, hanging up pictures of living, living living things is not permitted for us and will be a reason for the melodica not to enter your homes. So having pictures displayed and things like that labels is not allowed, quite simply. Okay.
Next question concerning birthdays.
The brother mentioned that you know, his family, they celebrate his birthday.
Eventually you get to an age where you don't start you know, maybe when you're a kid you do it you celebrate your own birth you get to a certain age, you don't have to keep reminding that the years are passing by the way. So maybe you've reached that level. Allah knows best. However.
Our birthday is something Islamic, do we participate in that?
Yes, there are different views on that say there are certain celebrations which are religiously based Halloween which have some form of shape and celebration, okay, clearly haram Valentine's, based upon some form of Schottky foundation. It's not loud to us birthdays, but it's just non religious. Okay, this is just celebrating a birthday and things like that. However, we say that Islam gave us two aids. Islam gave us two celebrations that we celebrate twice a year, okay, that federal aid Allah, Allah, this is what the Prophet alayhi salam told us, it was never the practice of the Muslims in the early times, to be celebrating birthdays and whatnot. So therefore, you should
avoid celebrating birthdays.
Excuse me. So birthdays is not something we involve engaging in Islam. Wallah who to add?
And, you know, on the same premise, he said, Well, you know, okay, it's non religious. There are so many non religious celebrations, okay, Mother's Day, Father's Day, all these other days that
What do we have left you know the you taking away from the value of Adel feta and aydelotte which is based upon worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. When years come around, make these things very special for our families and especially for our children. So they're not or have
the desire to, you know, find happiness and in birthdays and all these other celebrations that were
excused upon, gifted to us.
Next issue concerning attending and going to the cover and reciting al Fatiha. I mean, yes, there's a difference of opinion whether you can recite the Quran and dedicate that to the deceased have the view that the recitation or the reward of recitation is for the one reciting it. Okay. And it's not dedicated to the deceased, you make dua for the deceased. You ask Allah azza wa jal to have mercy upon them to forgive them to widen their grave to give them note in their grave. All these details for the deceased is very important. Do they hear us?
There's a difference of opinion on this, or some approaches they do here. But it's restricted? Not at all times. So if you just suddenly go to the grave, you start speaking to them, let us know that they cannot hear you. Okay? They certainly cannot answer your DUA and asking them for anything. It's not allowed as a Muslim is not allowed for you to go to the grave and ask the dead for anything.
They are unable to help themselves in the grapes. Okay, let alone help the living. Okay, if I had the majors, Tom, for you to go to the grave and to ask the deceased to help you. Okay, the majors, do they hear you? I guess I mentioned there's some slight difference opinion. But the more corrective you allow it, and Allah knows, knows knows best is that they can hear you when you're walking away from the grief when the time that they are or the time that they were buried. Other than that, they cannot hear you. And Allah subhanahu earnestness knows best
can women join the gym if they can hear the speaker in the masjid know, if you're in your house, you're not considered to be part of the gym or you can follow the Imam and that congregation if you are considered to be part of that Gemma of that particular congregation. If you're in your home,
then no one will say that you're part of that particular Jamaat, even though you can hear it. Okay, but you know, you're not part of that. gemera therefore, you would not follow the Imam as considering yourself part of that congregation. So either you go to the masjid to pray with them.
Or you pray in your home, okay, using using speakers and things like you could be 50 100 meters away.
Okay. And you will not be considered part of the Jamaat so you don't follow them. Then the person says well on next door to them, if your next door, okay? Walk into the masjid and pray with them. Okay.
Okay, we have another couple of questions
Kenny, if you're a woman praying a home alone and after semi Allah will it mean hammer that you set up in our local hand?
