Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa sallim wa barik ala Rasulillah meanwhile early he was Javier Jemaine well praise belongs to Allah made a peace of blessings of Allah, Allah Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad Salla Allahu Allahu Allah wa salam Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters and viewers at home, welcome to a new episode of Islam Mecca, where there's the opportunity for you and shout out to Allah to put your questions to us. And we will try our very best to answer them according to the teachings of the Quran. And the Sunnah Ethernet later Allah, the means of you contacting us is the telephone number,

00:00:52--> 00:01:17

which is time is passing at the bottom of your screen. So you can call us directly. And you can also post your questions to us via the WhatsApp number as well. So there's a number of ways of you contacting us and putting your questions in shallow Tyler. Now while we are waiting for you, to contact us and put your questions in shallow Taylor, I was on the way here now just thinking about just as a reminder,

00:01:18--> 00:01:26

what can we remind ourselves of? And I was thinking about the methodology of of a data.

00:01:27--> 00:02:15

And what do I mean by that? What I mean by that is, what is the way that we will call people to Al Islam. And one of the most important verses in the Quran is where a lot of barakaatuh Allah, Allah tells us or the LSB Rebecca Bill Hekmati. Well, motel Hasina, what's your deal humility, he sent and rough translation of this is called to the path or call to the way of your Lord Bill Hikmah with wisdom using the Quran and the Sunnah. And with a find admonition, if the person is requiring a bit further, and then after that, if they haven't completed rejection, then debate with them in a fine way. So this is a very important verse for us to think about and ponder over when we're talking

00:02:15--> 00:02:29

about the methodology in how to give that our and Allah subhanaw taala is best. So without any further delay, mashallah, we have somebody is on the line and wants to post the first question of the show today so Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

Yes, your question please.

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

My question is, please explain how to establish and do perfect.

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

How to how to make sure

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

such the tissue. Okay. Thank you, sister.

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

Oh, yeah.

00:02:57--> 00:02:57


00:02:58--> 00:03:01

So answering this question in Sharla is straightforward, in that,

00:03:03--> 00:03:36

first and foremost for us as Muslims is very important for us to be grateful and thankful to Allah subhanaw taala and this is shown and manifested in different ways. So we can say, when we are grateful and thankful for something that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with Alhamdulillah thanking and praising Allah subhanaw taala. That is also accompanied, meaning that when we say Alhamdulillah, it is accompanied with gratefulness in our heart. Okay, so in our heart, we recognize that Allah subhanaw taala will want him he is the one who

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

blesses individual and gives people their blessings, and therefore we should be grateful.

00:03:42--> 00:03:54

Another way of us being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala is such that such that a shocker, that is the prostration of gratitude or the frustration of thankfulness.

00:03:55--> 00:03:56


00:03:57--> 00:03:58

to simplify the matter,

00:03:59--> 00:04:00


00:04:02--> 00:04:11

there are a number of issues. Number one, is this considered salah? Is it considered a prayer? Okay, is this prostration of thankfulness? Is it a prayer?

00:04:12--> 00:04:24

More correct opinion? Well, Alana, is that we will say it is not considered a Salah it's not considered prayer. Therefore, because it's not considered a prayer we'll do is not necessary, because there's not a prayer

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

facing the tabler is not necessary, although it is highly recommended for you to make such towards the table. Okay. And thirdly, for sisters, because it is not considered Salah, the hijab would not be necessary for her when making that prostration of thankfulness because again, it's not considered a prayer. So at times when you define something, it makes clear for us many other rulings which are connected to that, okay, so although it would not be necessary, it is recommended to face the Qibla it is not necessary.

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

Do you have to work to wear hijab?

00:05:02--> 00:05:39

When you do make the salute for the frustration or thankfulness? Is it required to say Allahu Akbar and go as you would in Salah, then no, that is not necessary. It is just merely you're going into the position of sujood the prostration physician, okay, as you would normally unsolo you could say Subhana or Abele as you would say, in your normal Salah and you want to say other words, thanking Allah subhanaw taala for that particular blessing, then that's fine. Inshallah Talia, you can also say that if you don't know Arabic, you can set in your own language. Okay, no problem.

00:05:40--> 00:05:59

Another point connected to that, on what occasion? How often do I make this prostration of, of thankfulness? Okay, let's say, I don't know, it could be a very small thing. And it's all subjective, you know, so some things which are considered good news to everybody. But you know, to others, it's bigger than others, you know, they consider a bigger,

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

bigger, bigger blessing than others. And let's say for example, you passed your exam. This is a very, very big exam for yourself and Alhamdulillah you passed it. You put a lot of effort in that and you think that's really something that is overwhelming for you. You wanted to make Sudha Shakur the subject of frustration of foreign foreigners then no problem mashallah Tada okay. Or I don't know.

00:06:25--> 00:06:58

You decide you know, you got to get married you found the person you all agreed and Masha Allah it's something that you individually because it's done individually it's not all just go down this will make sense to go to Chicago together No, you do individually. So big issues, you make this prostration of thankfulness. As for small things, then no, you can say Alhamdulillah as you like, but it's usually set aside for major issues and Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Okay, so we have hope that's clear system your last month obviously we have another caller on the phone and Shana Turner, so we'll take that call my Salam Alaikum

00:07:03--> 00:07:11

Salaam Alaikum Sheikh Salah Mara haematologica too. Good to go question. I'll tell you what I do that you give you logic.

00:07:13--> 00:07:40

Every time after this there are some times without fresher, I decide to utter QC. And then I blow I live in Manchester did I blow to my two children? who live in London? Blow in their name? Is it allowed? When do you do this? Well, after after I tend to see it I tend to see all right. Okay, shall I brought was the name okay?

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

It's clear brother. May Allah bless you.

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

Okay, so the brother has mentioned that,

00:07:50--> 00:08:07

as is known from the altcar or the vicar that we make after salah is the recitation of AYATUL kursi. Which is a noble thing to do. May Allah subhanaw taala keep you up on that after every Salah if you can recite a telco See, this is a very, very good practice. And maybe for a person who

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

was unaware of that, your question insha Allah to Allah was an indicator for people now to do that. So you're rewarded for that, but within later Allah brother, okay, reciting AYATUL kursi, after your fourth salah.

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


00:08:23--> 00:08:32

what you also do, is that after you reciting AYATUL, kursi, because I assume that you there's an understanding that as we know

00:08:34--> 00:09:15

that there is, you know, when we want to perform rakia or recite over our children, Now, was this the practice of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam indeed it was. We know in a hadith that when the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would recite the coals and then blow into his hands and then he would wipe over al Hassan Al Hussein or the Allah and Houma because they weren't able to do for themselves when they're very very small. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would do this in the evening okay before they slept for example, so that asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect them okay? This practice yes is fine. As for then extending that, ie that after my salah, I want to recite Quran and

00:09:15--> 00:09:45

then dedicate or blow over a name, then we say no, this practice you should refrain from okay, this practice you should refrain from but that doesn't mean that you can't do anything for your children. So number one, you get the reward, inshallah to Allah of reciting the AYATUL kursi, after salah. Then after that, you can make dua, brother, that ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect your children, to guide your children to keep your children safe to give them the best of the dunya and akhira. Okay, so your practice shows that you have

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

a desire to do some good for your children, but it's important that you with this good intention that you have good practice as well and correct practice. Okay, so make dua for them. As for the recitation of Surah till rather AYATUL kursi and the blowing

00:10:00--> 00:10:22

have a name then no you should refrain you should not do that. And Allah Subhana Allah is best okay? If they were there present for you meant to do some good okay over them then okay, that's possible no problem but then being somewhere else and then you just doing over a name then as we mentioned, you should refrain from that brother. The substitute for that is that you can make dua for them. Okay. And we know in the sound Hadith as well, that one of the

00:10:23--> 00:10:41

highly likely scenarios where a drought or supplication will be answered is when the parent makes drought for their child. Okay, so may Allah subhanaw taala accept you have to ask for your children and all parents with their children Allahumma Amin, okay, so that inshallah Tada hope the answer is clear on that.

00:10:42--> 00:10:45

Okay, so there's another question here shorter data from the WhatsApp,

00:10:46--> 00:11:03

I would like to pay off a loan on behalf of somebody poor, who borrowed money from a bank in a particular country, they are unable to pay it back. My worry is that I will be committing a major sin by paying arriba which is part of the loan.

00:11:04--> 00:11:15

Okay. So in a situation like this, where a person borrows money takes out a loan, and part of the agreement in that loan is that there is interest to be paid.

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

That person should be advised to repent to Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

because taking anybody's you know, is a problem.

00:11:24--> 00:11:33

Now, the money that borrowed and to keep the answer may be concise, not make it too long for you is that it is allowed for you, okay, to help that poor person

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

in paying off

00:11:37--> 00:11:49

that loan, if they, you know, they want to resolve their situation, they're in a very desperate situation, now, you want to help them get rid of that loan, okay, as a charity, then you're allowed to do that in Charlottesville, okay.

00:11:51--> 00:12:05

But you're not committing a sin by helping them get out of that situation. Because the reality is now that that person is in a situation where money has to be paid back. And there was an agreement to pay, you know, interest in what not

00:12:06--> 00:12:32

to forsake them said, Well, nobody can help you, you have to live with that sin. Okay, they want to get out of it now. And for you to help them get out of it quicker, so that they lessen the amount of maybe river that will be paid in order to help them out of charity for them to help them then that's fine. Okay. As far as their care is a cat would be something else. There's a cat would not be able, you can't pay off the diva pot. Okay, but they have loans, and they have debts and people who have debts.

00:12:33--> 00:12:52

It's okay to help them with Zakah if they have debts, you can pay Zakat and helping them pay more pay off debts, the permitted part of the loan as for the rebar pot, then you're not allowed to pay the care towards the other charity can be used to pay that inshallah to Allah. And the last pattern is missed.

00:12:53--> 00:13:37

Okay, the next question, Can I join Valhalla, Nasser and Maga in Asia together? Okay, so this is a very broad question. Can I join prayers? Well, the origin is almost the origin, the starting point is that all prayers are offered in their correct times, and we pray five times a day, okay? We don't pray five prayers at three times in the day. So we pray Fajr on its own, okay, then dot dot rasa. And then we're gonna make sure three different times in the day we're offering our press, the origin is that you don't do that. There are circumstances where you are permitted to join press. So you are permitted to join Aloha NASA and you are permitted to also join Margaret and Aisha. Okay. So these

00:13:37--> 00:13:44

are situations for you, Charlotte to do them. What are those situations, those situations are when you are a traveler.

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

If you are a traveler,

00:13:48--> 00:14:14

you are permitted to join a vault with acid and you can join Laura and us and pray them both in the earlier time in law time. Or you can delay them and pray them both in our source time. Similarly, similarly for the the market in Asia, the market in Asia, that can be both prayed earlier in the market of time, or in the latter time in Southeast Asia. Okay, that's if you are a traveler, okay.

00:14:15--> 00:14:39

So, this is probably the most common reason why people are allowed to join their prayers. So therefore we say, if you want to be a bit more specific, a bit more specific concerning, can you just join your prayers? Maybe if you could mention maybe what is the situation is not a tan? Okay. Or the next question. I want to memorize the Quran and how can I start?

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

I want to memorize the Quran and where do I start? Well, first and foremost, like any righteous action, you should start with

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

a sincere and pure intention, a sincere and pure intention that it is only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala that you want to do this and as any righteous action, any right

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

Just action requires not just an intention but to have a pure intention, a sincere intention, that this action is for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Okay, that you recognize that there is a great reward in memorizing the Quran, that there is blessings in this life and in the Hereafter, that they are very special people. They are a very special people, those people who memorize the Quran

00:15:26--> 00:15:33

and I'll give you Subhanallah an insight to this, how the people of the Quran were honored and should be honored

00:15:34--> 00:15:47

during during the Battle of heart during the Battle of Muhammad, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam after the battle where they were 70 martyrs from the Muslims 70

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

And there was a discussion amongst the Companions,

00:15:54--> 00:16:16

where or how they will make 70 graves and to you know, to dig 70 graves was a big was a big undertaking big job. So they sought permission from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would it be allowed for them to dig one grave, which would be big enough to fit two people, two of the martyrs the Prophet alayhi salam gave permission,

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

that two of the martyrs can be buried in one grave.

00:16:20--> 00:16:32

And so what happened when they dug the graves, the Prophet alayhi wa sallam himself, went into the grave of each one of the graves, and will be the person to place that Sahabi to place that

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

companion into the grave Subhanallah the Prophet alayhi salam asked two things.

00:16:40--> 00:17:14

The first thing he would ask, is that the first companion who was to be buried, does he or did he have a very close companion with him in this dunya? Does he have a brother, a blood brother or somebody who's very, very close to him, so that they would be buried together and they would be raised together? Subhan Allah. And the second one that the Prophet if someone would asked Is that who had memorized more Quran than the other? Now, does this mean that if you're going to bury two people, you have to find out that the one who has memorized Quran most of you buried that one first? No, not necessarily. But this is the honoring of the one who had memorized the Quran Subhanallah

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

that he will be placed in the cupboard first.

00:17:18--> 00:17:57

So remember button sisters, that it is a great honor, and a blessing that a lot of Otter Allah will give an individual to memorize Quran, to memorize and to say his words to read his words subhanho wa Tada. Then find a teacher. After you have a good intention, sincere intention, find a good teacher, okay, don't do it yourself, you have mistakes and if there's mistakes this problem, so find a good teacher inshallah to Allah whom you can learn with. And that teacher will give you if you'd like a formula or a way that you will start memorizing, there isn't one way to memorize the Quran. Okay, there are many ways many ways to approach the Quran and memorizing it. Some, for example, say try to

00:17:57--> 00:18:30

start from the last three, just because there's more chapters. And with the smaller chapters, it builds up your memory muscle, and you're able to memorize the Quran easier when you get to longer chapters. Okay? So maybe start with the smaller chapters, and then you make your way and go on that journey in shadow to add it, maybe it's a lifelong journey. Maybe it's a journey that takes you one year, six months, 10 years, 15 years, but nonetheless, it's a journey that you undertake, and you have begun, okay, you don't stay in one position and don't do nothing. Try to increase your memorization at all times in Charlotte Taylor. So, I would

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

recommend this in Charlotte Taylor.

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

Next question, is it permissible to take an interest based loan when it is my only option and I am desperate?

00:18:43--> 00:19:24

Right? Now answering a question like this, when a person is stating that there is a broader, there is a necessity, I would say it is better for you to actually speak to somebody. Okay? So that you can describe your situation, because maybe according to you, it's a desperate situation. Maybe there are other options, right that you don't know. And maybe there are so therefore I would say to you to speak to somebody one to one person of knowledge, who can maybe explain the situation and find out really what you're up the best option for you to do inshallah and okay, I ask Allah Subhana Allah to make it easy for you, to open away for you. And to protect you from anything which is maybe

00:19:24--> 00:19:52

displeasing from Allah subhanaw taala I remember when we took a look at your Allahu Maharajah we always Oklahoman how to Allah Yatta said that whoever fears Allah subhanaw taala Allah Allah Allah would open the way for them and provide for them from where they did not think any assistance or provisions would, would come from. So Allah subhanaw taala dismissed. Okay, we've come to the end of this first part, please join us on the other side of the show inshallah Tada, bada Kulfi Khan was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Yeah. Are you

00:19:55--> 00:19:55


00:19:56--> 00:19:58

LTE Odin was

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


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


00:20:03--> 00:20:33

me level hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome back brothers, sisters and viewers, to the second part of Islam Mecca where we're continuing to take your questions and Schelotto through the telephone number that's appearing at the bottom of your screen also the option of sending your question through the WhatsApp number that you have as well as Charlotte Allah appearing on the screen. Okay, so we've had a couple of callers in Charlottetown the first part you still have the opportunity brother and sisters to to call in and put your question and we'll try our best to answer those inshallah Tada, but we also had some very

00:20:33--> 00:20:45

important and interesting questions via WhatsApp, and there's still some remaining, which we'll try our best to, to answer, inshallah. Tada, so one of those is, is it permissible as a Muslim?

00:20:46--> 00:20:56

To open a vet, or an animal hospital, which specializes in, in dogs, or dog treatment?

00:20:58--> 00:20:59


00:21:01--> 00:21:09

first and foremost, we'll start at the top, we'll go to make it complicated opening an animal hospital. Okay, is that permitted? Yeah. Okay, no problem.

00:21:10--> 00:21:17

Which treats animals because, you know, looking after animals and people keeping animals as pets is something hollered.

00:21:18--> 00:21:30

And then if they get sick, or they need treatment, treating them of course, you should do that. And having a facility or service for that needs to be there. So mostly wants to be an animal doctor, become a vet and look after animals that no problem.

00:21:31--> 00:21:43

If it was now that you want to open a dog clinic or dog hospital, okay. And if you are opening this vet or this hospital

00:21:45--> 00:21:52

in a place where we know that the vast majority, if not all, are keeping animals in.

00:21:53--> 00:22:35

From an Islamic perspective, no, it's not valid. Because we know in Islam, that keeping dogs has to be always restricted, ie that we're not permitted to keep them in our home. Okay, so keeping a dog for hunting. And this is mentioned in Surah 10. Murder, okay, permitted to have hunting dogs. It is permitted to have dogs for herding. And it is permitted to have dogs for also farming, okay, if you own dogs for these three purposes. And the fourth one, which is sometimes used and abused, okay, and that is for God dogs, and the person because they like dogs, okay. Like small puppies, and then the puppies grow up, and they have dogs and they say, Oh, I'm keeping the dog to God my house.

00:22:36--> 00:22:46

Is there any imminent danger to your house? No. There's any problem and people are in the area where people are stealing from homes? No, but he's guarding my property.

00:22:48--> 00:23:22

What if there's no danger or no security issue to your home while you're keeping the dog? The issue is that they're doing it under the guise of security dog when there is no need to keep a guard dog. Okay. So there are further restrictions concerned it has to be completely justified and some of the element allow that yes, a God, if there is a real, real security issue, not just, Well, maybe one time but everybody's house could be, you know, robbed and things like that. That's not a reason to keep a dog as a guard dog. Okay, only in very certain situations, you can keep a dog. This is the situations were allowed to keep a dog. Other than that,

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

then as a Muslim is not allowed.

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

There are a number of innovations which mentioned that there is a Pirot or two kiloHertz,

00:23:32--> 00:23:49

which is like one mountain or two mountains worth of reward taken away from that person or keeping the dog. Okay, so as a big issue in Islam, if you're opening a clinic, which is specifically in a place where people keep dogs in a haram way, then it is almost that

00:23:50--> 00:24:14

you are supporting the system to keep that and Allah subhanaw taala tells us what are our eligibility for telco well at our new Alan Mulally one, but you should help one another in goodness and righteousness and don't help and help one another upon sin and wrongdoing. So let's say that there was an issue, if you're going to open up clinic in a country or place where people are keeping dogs not in a permitted way from an Islamic point of view that is,

00:24:15--> 00:24:23

then you should not open there would be an issue opening a door clinic I would say that is an issue concerning and Allah Subhana Allah knows best. Okay.

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

does a child need will door when touching the Quran?

00:24:29--> 00:25:00

So you understand that adults I assume should have will do when touching the most half touching the most half you should have odo is a view of many of the elements. And see it seems to be the correct view as well. Okay. What about children? Well, if that child because you know, if you've got a two year old and a seven year old, they're very different in terms of their approach to the Quran, a seven year old maybe wanting to start learning the Quran, no. Okay. And if they are old enough to stop

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


00:25:02--> 00:25:11

learning the recitation of the Quran, they should also be taught, okay? The dab the manners that go with it. So they should also be in a state of adult, okay? Teach them that

00:25:13--> 00:25:30

if you're talking about two year old, then, you know to a two year old walking around with the most high for what reason, you know, they might throw it on the floor might drop it on the floor, even a three year old, whatever, if that child is not really cognizant of really what's happening, you know, don't allow them to maybe carry the Quran the most half around because it may drop. Okay.

00:25:32--> 00:25:55

So do children need to touch with or touch the Quran? Well, it depends on the scenario that I mentioned a couple of scenarios depending on their age, if they're very very young then no, you know, don't give them a quote on case they drop it or something like that. You have to be a bit older and they're old enough to understand that what Okay, teach them teach them to recite teach them to have adult as well okay, these are the manners that go with with the Quran.

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

And Allah subhanaw taala in his midst

00:25:59--> 00:25:59

again, you know,

00:26:01--> 00:26:14

as Muslims Alhamdulillah we are very eager for our children to learn memorizing or to recite the Quran which is the most beautiful thing Mashallah. But don't forget that the book of Allah subhanaw taala is not just a recitation

00:26:15--> 00:26:27

of the Quran is for you to Yes, recite it for you to understand it. Okay, and to act by it, okay to teach others. These are all very important aspects that go along with you learning the Quran.

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

Nobody's expecting, you know, a seven year old or eight year old, okay to be going out giving lectures and so on and so forth.

00:26:35--> 00:27:02

Because we have to be real about the material. It goes in stages. But it doesn't mean that we're just focusing on recitation and nothing else. Okay. Allow them if, if they're learning the small chapters from the end of the Quran Valhalla who had for example, okay, teach them the meaning of this very important. Surah Surah had a class about the oneness, and the uniqueness and the beauty of Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, so there are many things that go along with just its mere recitation. Allahu Allah.

00:27:04--> 00:27:08

Next question, when I was a student, I used to delay my prayers until the end of the day.

00:27:09--> 00:27:12

I was away from home in student accommodation. Was this valid?

00:27:15--> 00:27:51

Well, no, the prayers need to be prayed on time. Okay? In salah, Turkana, Tallinn, macmedia, Nikita Mahkota, a lot of what Allah says in shorter 10, he said that the prayers were established upon the believers at specific times, okay, and prioritizing whatever you prioritized over the prayer for them just to be offered in the evenings like this, it is not right. And those students who are in situations now they have studies, they're away from home, nobody's there to remind them, they're on their own. And it's a big, it's a big test for Muslims to live away from the

00:27:52--> 00:28:09

flag and say security of their home. What I mean by security is that there are there those to remind you, your parents are there to remind you about your Salah you're, you're amongst friends and companions that you know, who shall not have to remind you about the prayer when you go somewhere else, and you're on your own. And as we know that the wolf will

00:28:11--> 00:28:37

have, have a good time with the lone sheep. The lone sheep is very difficult situation for that person. Okay, so it's not recommended for a person to live alone in general. So if you're living away from home, at university and things like that, or for other reasons, then you have to be very, very careful. The shaytaan can come to you and make 1,000,001 excuses for you to delay your prayers, you're very busy, you have this exam, and Allah knows your situation, you know, so I would say

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

it was not correct for you to do that.

00:28:43--> 00:29:15

And whatever has gone past and if Allah and myself may Allah Israel, forgive us for what happened in the past and in the future, be sure to shall make sure that you offer your prayers at the correct times insha Allah Allah, if you want success at university, be successful with your Lord first and foremost. And ask a lot of Oracle to Allah for for tofield from him and then you will find that things they will fall into place and charlatan as for the one who prioritizes other things over, over Allah subhanaw taala. They can only expect

00:29:16--> 00:29:26

what they intend. They want goodness or what have they just their intention is to get something from this world. That's all they'll get. And they will receive nothing from Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah Allah to protect us from that alone, I mean,

00:29:27--> 00:29:37

okay, we have another question about who do we refer to when seeking knowledge? Who do we refer to when seeking knowledge?

00:29:39--> 00:29:48

So seeking knowledge and Islam is very important, extremely important. There are many verses in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala

00:29:50--> 00:30:00

In fact, there are supplications called visit any ailment and oh my lord, increase my knowledge. And then there are other situations where Allah subhanaw taala compares those people that know

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

Oh and they don't they don't know. Those who know those who don't know they are not the same. Okay? Allah subhanaw taala praises or not praises but rather gives a high standing to the there are lemma. Okay, these are the people who truly fear Allah subhanaw taala in the martial law has been a mood to hinder or limit it is only truly the aroma the people of knowledge who can truly fear Allah subhanho wa taala. So there are many texts from the Quran, and from the Sunnah, about the status of the one who has knowledge. And therefore as Muslims, we're always striving to seek knowledge.

00:30:37--> 00:30:45

However, there are certain aspects of our religion, which are clearly understood, okay, which everybody understands.

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

And then there are other issues, which are maybe slightly more complicated. And the situation is a little bit subjective. Maybe to some they know everybody knows it, and others, maybe they don't know it, okay, so it depends on the person.

00:30:58--> 00:31:19

Nonetheless, there may be at times, at times when a person doesn't know something within the den, and what do they do in this situation? Okay, nobody knows everything. So what do I do? Well, Allah subhanaw taala tells us first victory in quantum letter alamode asked the people of knowledge, the people of remembrance, if you don't know, okay, so number one, don't do things yourself.

00:31:20--> 00:32:01

Don't do a DIY job on your situation. And then after that, say, okay, me, it didn't turn out the way I thought was gonna turn out. Let me go and ask a person of knowledge. Don't do that. Don't do that. Okay, if it is a birder is something which is to do with how to learn how to ask a person of knowledge, what should I do in this situation? You get an answer, and then you can go with the answer. Okay. Right. So you have the process, you have the process. Now you need to find out as in the question, Who do I go to? Who do I go to? Now, it's very important that you go to the right people. You know, Allah subhanaw taala mentions a hell of a vicar, the people who remembrance people

00:32:01--> 00:32:21

of knowledge, as the Mufasa rune that people have explained to these verses, was the intended meaning behind this. Allah subhanaw taala didn't say I'll go ask your neighbor, or go ask somebody who else is Muslim and get their get their opinion on it, okay, or go to a search engine on the internet? Just get an answer? No, you go to the people who knowledge. So who are these people?

00:32:22--> 00:33:06

Are these people who are very, very learned people with long beards, who live in caves, that you have to travel miles to have access to these the people we're supposed to contact? Of course, this is not the case, I've hamdulillah in the in the time that we are living in now, access to people of knowledge should be more or less, it is much simpler, and easier than it was of times before where people Yes, literally had to travel at times, maybe from one city to another, have telephones don't have means of social media and whatnot, okay. So they would have to time travel and go to places to find a person of knowledge, who would be able to give them an answer. As for the situation now,

00:33:07--> 00:33:46

which requires you not to do very much you can do a little search you can do. But at the same time, there is great danger in this because there are those people who appear and who will wear the clothes, and speak the language of the people have appear to speak the language of the people of knowledge, when in fact that they are not, they are not from the people of knowledge, and that they themselves are misguided and misguide others. And this is something that the Prophet alayhi salam told us and foretold, that would happen, that knowledge would be eventually slowly taken away from people. And how that would happen is by the passing of their true aroma, or Bernie Yun, those four

00:33:47--> 00:34:01

steadfast, well known, trustworthy scholars that they would die and they would pass away, for whatever reason, and who would remain are the ignorant people. And that these gaps that appeared, were ones that remember that they were

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

they tried to fill their boots,

00:34:05--> 00:34:18

metaphorically that they step in that vacuum, and appear to talk about very, very sensitive issues, complicated issues. And they may have, I don't know,

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

matters of creed.

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

And matters are filthy and it is always a clear difference of opinion and deep and accept whatever month have you are in matters of creed, which is much more controversial, matters of Aqeedah much more controversial. The,

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

the, you know the pieces of information that you give out a much more juicy and then you'll get more clicks, you'll get more likes, you'll get more views. It's easier for you to do that. And then you find people who put themselves out and they speak for five minutes. They won't speak for any longer than five or 10 minutes because if they speak any longer, they will expose their ignorance. Okay, so they don't speak for very long. They will not give you a long proper lecture on it.

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

Topic based upon the Quran and the Sunnah. Rather, they will give you, you know, piecemeal little excerpts of something that will translate, which is a timeless translated incorrectly, okay, and it lasts five or six minutes, if it goes any longer, they'll expose themselves. And they'll look extremely foolish, okay. So as Muslims, we need to be very, very careful as to whom we are going to seek knowledge from and whom we are going to refer to whom we are going to refer to, with regards to times complicated issues, sensitive issues, we are certainly living in a time now, where, you know, anyone, if they like they can appear on the social media and speak about issues, which are far

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

greater than

00:35:49--> 00:35:59

they are clearly qualified for, let's be honest, let's be straight there. And many of them are talking about issues which don't concern them, and certainly don't concern the masses.

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

And that they're talking about issues, which I don't know, talking about things that happened centuries ago, which had a very specific context to it. Because it is easy to look at, as a historian to judge previous centuries and look at, you know, things that happened in the past through the lens of the year that you were living in 2022. And say, Well, are we I wouldn't have done that. And this is clearly wrong. And this is clearly misguided, and so on and so forth, which is easy for you to do them. But for you to understand the historical nature of what happened and why things happened and what, and to read the paragraph that came before that you put on the screen or

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

the paragraph that comes after, and you know, so many things that people can be very easily misled.

00:36:45--> 00:36:54

They are misled or mislead others. So what I would say in terms of the question, may Allah bless them, who do we refer to refer to those who have

00:36:55--> 00:36:56


00:36:57--> 00:37:06

origins of where they have studied, and whom that they have studied with? Okay? And age is a good indicator, okay?

00:37:07--> 00:37:33

Because there's only so much you can do when you're young pup, and you've only been around for a little while, there's only so much you can read. So therefore, these young Shabaab, may Allah bless them, because maybe you have good intention. And when I say the intention is good, that they want to do something good, but that doesn't rectify that they're doing a wrong action. Okay? If you have a good intention, it doesn't mean that I can change that bad action into a good action.

00:37:34--> 00:38:13

Your intention and the action both have to be correct. Okay. Both have to be correct. So, it's not enough to have a good intention, you have to make sure that yes, pure sincere intention, and then the action is also correct. Okay. So I would say is that those whom are known for their knowledge, where they have studied and who they have studied with, and try to look for those people, okay? Try to look for those people. It may not necessarily be the one who has the most clicks, and the most likes, and is the most charismatic, that's what not we're looking for. We're looking for the Huck. We're looking for the truth. Okay, as an individual as a Muslim, you're looking to do what is right.

00:38:14--> 00:38:50

Okay, not what pleases the masses, or that you fit in. Okay, so you're looking for the truth. And always ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide you to the truth. And when you see the truth that you will follow it, and to protect you from Balton. And that Allah, Allah, Allah grants you the ability to refute and to stay away from that what is mortal, okay? This is very, very important. And this is the responsibility upon every Muslim, okay? It's the responsibility of every Muslim, to seek out to search out and to seek the people of knowledge. Okay? And once you've done that, then we ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us all, to protect us all. And allow us to do that what is pleasing to Him

00:38:50--> 00:39:24

soprano to Allah, so that our impact is not spread to others in a negative way. That is done in a positive way. Okay. So the subject really, the question is a very good question probably needs a lecture to be honest. And in essence, because we're coming to the end of the show now, we ask a lot Gela to guide us to the straight path and protect us from Allah to guide us to the Quran and Sunnah Allah Ameen. May Allah subhanaw taala bless you all sisters and brothers, until we meet again. Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Yeah, you have

00:39:27--> 00:39:28
