Smilla Rahmanir Rahim and hamdulillah Halabi iron Amin wa Salatu was Salam ala Ashrafi Lumbee he will say the more saline while early he was having he may not appraise belongs to Allah made a peace and blessings of Allah Allah Allah be upon His messenger Muhammad salallahu Salam it Breton sisters are Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome to an episode of Islamic law, where you're given the opportunity to put your questions to us shantala or put them to me.
And I will try my best to shadow to either to answer those questions according to the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah. You have a couple of options to contact us or a couple of ways contacting us. The first one is with the the telephone number that's appearing at the bottom of your screen. There is also a way that you can type your questions write your questions to us via the WhatsApp number that is also appearing on the bottom of your screen.
So we look forward to your participation in this particular show that inshallah Tada we're able to
shed some light on some of the issues that you may have with regarding your deen. And this is something that we shouldn't shy away from. There were many times that the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they would if they were unsure of something, they would go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and ask questions about their Deen.
They weren't people who were that is the companions or the Allahu Anhu? May Allah subhanaw Please with the mall, where people are constantly asking questions every five minutes
on the small things, but rather those and when we look when we look at their questions. They were very simple questions. But very deep meanings had very deep understanding concerning their questions. So but at times you find them they would ask the Prophet Elisa to salaam what's the best action?
Okay, this is a very, very simple question. But yet for us as Muslims, it's one of the most important questions to ask what's the best action or for example, they would ask
how can I be with you? Oh messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam in the in the hereafter? Or how can I attain Janna? How can I attain
you know the best of things. So the Companions questions about Elon would be very simple issues but very, very important. You're talking about asking about the things which are things that will take you to Jenna, those deeds which are to do with matters which have the most reward, and we time we find that times the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
would answer the questions in in different ways to the Companions, or the Allah and depending on the questioner.
So this goes to show that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in touch and was aware of the situation of Assad of the questioner. So on one occasion, the prophet the Prophet saw him said a Salah to Allah work to
the best of deeds is to offer your Salah at its appropriate time, and it's correct time and in some of the understandings of the aroma at its earliest time. And on other occasions, the professor's have answered to have emailed and faith in Allah subhanaw taala.
So this isn't
may seem an apparent contradiction when you find companions are asking you about the best deeds on one occasion it's Salah on its time and another one it's belief in Allah subhanaw taala
there's no contradiction at all, rather, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has taken into consideration the situation of the questioner okay. And that particular companion or those who are around the him or her at that time, that is what was sufficient and that was best to ask or answer at that particular time.
So if you can say if you'd like when taking these examples into consideration, that there is
an error adab there is a manner in the type of questions that you ask. And also for the one answering there is an important part of you understanding whom you are answering. But you need to know where they are as best you can, who they are, how to answer the question, not to make the answer overcomplicated, so that you find the individual is now even more confused. And sometimes when you're answering the question, you not only give the answer, but you add another benefit as well. And on many occasion that Prophet sallallaahu Selim would give extra information to the one who's asking that question, bearing in mind that this may be an issue that they come across quite a
lot when the province has an answer. The fishermen, the fishermen, they
He said, Yeah rasool Allah can we make well dealt with? Of course I'm paraphrasing the Hadith. Can we make well dealt with the seawater? The prophets have said, Yes, you can make will do with the seawater and any dead you find in the sea, from dead fish and so on, you can benefit from it as well. It's, it's something which is halal for you. Okay. So it's important for us to remember that, and Allah knows best. So we have a caller on the line, we'll take that call in that particular week. So that might take a while. Yes, sister,
I know, your question, I want to ask a question about working in the bank, if someone walks in the bank as an investment banker or any other job, so what is the ruling of Islam you know, because there are so many doubts about that, especially in this country, Britain or any non western countries. So hardly you will find that anything business or anything without interest. So just working as that. So what you will say that about that? Okay, thank you very much.
Okay, so the system is asking about working in banks.
for me personally, when answering questions about people's livelihood, I'm a little reluctant, especially live on air, or when I'm unable to really kind of get the background of of a particular situation or a person and so on. So I don't I don't like to give absolutes. Unless something is clear, absolute clear, it's, it doesn't need for me to sit with you for half an hour to find out what your situation is. Okay. If a person is working something categorically, absolutely haram, then don't give an answer for that.
Now, what I would say is that what is probably best Sr? Is that the person in question or persons in question is that if they can put their situation to somebody or person of knowledge and explain the whole scenario around it, okay, of avoiding answer your question, because I'll give you an answer, but to get a few like, some finality on your whole situation,
that would be better. Now,
in general, working in institutions, which are based upon from an Islamic point of view, how
this is problematic, absolutely no doubt, okay. person may say, Well, I have to provide for my family, I have to do this, and I have no other choice. And the person restricts this situation, either they've carved out a situation themselves to justify their, their work. This is what I'm saying is that it's probably best that you sit with somebody. So all those self imposed restrictions can be removed.
And that the situation can then be explained to them clearly as to why
all intents purposes probably isn't allowed for you to work in a bank system. Because the whole
kind of structure of it is intrinsically based on and in the usage of Libor Interest. If this is the case, then you need to give it up for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala
and Allah subhanaw taala will grant you something which is better than that. Okay. So there's a general answer, that if you're working in such an institution, which is fundamentally based upon something which is haram, then you need to give it up for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah Jalla wa Ala have the trust in Allah Allah Allah that He will replace it with something that is better for you, but isn't it later Allah and Allah paternalist. Okay, so we have some questions via the WhatsApp as well.
I have been separated from the father of my children for nearly eight years. He doesn't support me all the children and lives abroad. I've asked for a divorce but he keeps coming up with excuses. Can I apply? Can I apply for officer
okay, I first translate that is like an annulment
which is given by an Islamic judge in situations like this, again, I would direct you to some form of Islamic Council
where they deal with specific issues like this where if if you like the husband has somewhat absconded and there's not really doing anything for
his family, you can take it to a judge and then they can take it from there inshallah to Allah, I'm unable to give any form of ruling on this because it needs both parties to be spoken to, and then you can take it forward from there inshallah Tada. Well, our item Okay, next question. How long after birth can the two spouses engage in
sexual relations after birth, okay. So after a woman gives birth, she goes through a stage of NFS Okay, so there is as well known after motherhood
is birth there's a blood discharge and that she needs time to recover. Now, during this time as long as there was a blood discharge, you need to abstain, one needs to abstain from his wife until she becomes pure.
At the very least, it may be that, you know, they will, you know, some stitches involved in things like some form of extra kind of operation that was done after birth to allow her to recover. So it needs to be kind of comfortable for for both parties that's very important, but at the very least, she needs to stop bleeding. The maximum is 40 days it may occur before that. So if a woman stops blood discharge at 25 days or 30 days, she has Walsall and she starts praying okay. If day 40 still has a discharge or discharge that is that she has Wasson and she starts praying okay. But this is the very earliest is that the blood needs to stop and then when she starts praying then the spouses
can resume or loiter.
In Salah after sorta told Fatiha do you say Bismillah again before you start seeing another Surah
Okay, so, in Salah
you recited Surah Al Fatiha Now, if you're
intend to write if you cite another source, which is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salam, then separate them with Bismillah. Okay, if you didn't recite it, if you didn't recite it, then
you've not left out on obligation of the prayer. There's no need for you to repeat the prayer. Okay.
So it's not an issue. But if you recite the Bismillah after it, then between the chapters that is, then that's good shot. Oh, that's fine for you to do with me.
Can you make a double intention for fasting?
Yes, so there are certain occasions when
fasting a particular day may involve a number of different rewards. Okay, let's so, you know, in the past month or so, just over a month, we had, you know, the days of alpha or the day of alpha, and the days of Muharram, where we were fasting, okay, there's a great reward for those days. Let's say, You know what, those days they were all happen to fall on a Monday or a Thursday, which is a pseudonym for us to foster Monday and Thursday. Can I have a double intention, then? Yes, you can. Okay, yes, you can. So you can have multiple intentions, you could have multiple intentions.
Furthermore, you could have three potentially that if you wanted to make up a day from Ramadan that you owed, and literally, let's say for the night for a 10th of Muharram fail on Monday or Thursday, and your primary intention is your fourth to make up the day. And Sharla you wanted to make that for Muharram as well and happened to fall on a Monday then, you know, those three things would be permitted for you Sharla Lorena, so there were certain times when you could have a double intention. You couldn't for example, include two fourths, okay. So you can say well, I'm going to intend to days for one day and things like that, okay, you can't do that. So as long as those things which
either failure or voluntary for you want to include more than one intention in those different voluntary issues then it's permitted for you
can I do an Akita and qurbani with the same Nia at once
so I'm assuming that you are talking about a karate which is done during the days of Hajj Okay.
Upon the issues upon the basis that you know, the Quran is a worship and also there's a view also that the tikka is
coded some aroma is also larger than they should be done separately. Okay. You don't
join them together by kill to kill birds with one stone. You should do them separately although
I would advise if you can do them separately would be better shorter, so that you can move away from many doubts whether one suffices the other or not. Okay. So if you do them separately,
that would be safer, better for you to do. Walter.
Okay. This is the end of Part One button sisters, and we will see you on the other side of the break. Please stay with us. Bless you. Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back brothers and sisters and viewers at home to Islamic we're in the second half of the show will continue to be taking your questions inshallah Tada. And I do believe there is a caller on the line. So we'll take that call now. And
Sanatana Salam Alaikum
salam. Yes. Go ahead, brother. Sheikh, you said at the beginning of the show that you should pray at the earliest time some scholars state state state back
up for Isha, you should delay it a little bit. Could you comment on that? Okay, so I'll just take a look at the second question as well. Okay. You had
some masajid for Friday up for the hotbar. The Imam holds the staff.
Is that from the Sunnah? Okay.
Thank you, brother.
Okay, so the brothers got a couple of questions to us.
I mentioned earlier, from the understandings that the Prophet SAW Selim, when answering the question, what are the best actions just up there? There's a lot of times at the earliest time.
This is general across the board,
except when you find an exception to that. So with regards to federal the harasser, and Maghrib best time to offer those is it is earliest time with an exception to Salatin Asia, in which that the prophet is that Sudan mentioned in a number of Hadith that delaying Salat in Asia would be preferred.
However, in explaining this, so it's better to if you can delay a lot in Russia, not beyond its time. Cannot be and it's time and then the credit question is asked, okay, so what's the last time for a shirt? Is it until Fudger? Or was it until half of the night?
When we say, half that night, it's sometimes it's translated as midnight, which of then a person says, okay, that means, you know, 12 midnight, that's not what it means. Okay, half of the night is working out the time between marketed and for job, how many hours that isn't, and finding out
halfway between that, regardless of the fact is that as for men, that they should be attending the Jama congregational prayer.
And in times that we are living now, there isn't a fluctuation.
You know, a time where, you know, the Imam says tomorrow, okay, we're gonna pray a shot later tomorrow. Because, you know, we want to implement, you know, the Hadith or the statement of the province isn't to delay a shot for whatever reason, it's kind of fixed at the moment. This is to make it easier for the people to to their work commitments, and due to
people's responsibilities, large cities, you know, lots and lots of people so that he can attend one Gemma and things like that. Okay, so on a practical sense, this is what happens. However, the Prophet of Islam said if you can, you can delete, delete good, unless it makes while there is a difficulty for the people. So when the Prophet would see in the masjid,
around the time, he showed that the companions that attended, they would pray early, and at times if he wanted to delay to allow people to come here or listen would delay it. Okay. But preferably to delay it, but there are other factors to be brought into consideration concerning that it's not just today across the board, it depends on the situation we'll hire
with regards to the holding of the staff or the stick during the hotbar there were occasions when the Prophet Airism did hold that is this something which is part of the makeup of the Habib
miss some of the element of view that that holding the stick is part of what the copy or the Imam should do based upon what the person did on some occasions and others do not see that that it is part of the hotbar so therefore, not necessary. Okay. So those who see it as part of you know, the makeup you should do that, or those who say no, it was just an ad or something that person used to lean on when he was on the small remember that he had a solemn to have, you know, something to stand on to how to have this kind of haber or disposition over the
those were, you know, listening attentively to the hot word and you should do that otherwise it's not something which is necessary. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best
just like a locker for your question below.
Okay, so we have some remaining questions on the on the WhatsApp.
But before we take that we'll take the call on the line Salam aleikum.
Riley good luck with
your question please
if you can speak to me through the phone and don't listen to me through the TV please system
for not talk to me through the phone. Okay, as long as
your system and my God made
me decide items
So can we do this step by step
and have a again be really sad
I can go
slow on faces of them and just saying guns but they are not
to get permission, I understand. Okay. Thanks sister. Very good question Mashallah.
Okay. This is a very good question mashallah and this goes to show the health or how much I love how mothers and parents they have so much love for their children they want to do anything that they can to ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect their children.
So this is this mentioned a situation where and this we know that the Prophet alayhi salam advised us to before we sleep to
part of our you know, nightly routine if you like before you sleep is to recite all who Allahu Ahad or Otto probably falak and cold openness after you recited those three chapters, okay, that you have here, your hands cut to like this and that you blow into your hand spittle, and then you wipe over your body. Okay? That you do that once and then twice and then twice.
You also recite a little cool to see
before usually, and that if you do that we know also that Allah Subhana Allah will have an angel there to guide you until the morning.
The Prophet SAW Selim also did this for Al Hassan will Hosein
Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were very his grandchildren. What are the Allahu anha that they were very young, very small that the Prophet alayhi salam in their presence he would clap his hands recite Quran and blow and wipe over them as well. Okay, now can this now be extended to somebody who is not present?
Okay, my children are living in a different home in a different country in a different place are either not with you, that's the point. Can I do this with an intention? Maybe I'm blowing in my hands and then I imagine blowing them or rubbing them I don't know how the person is going to do that. What we'd say is that this practice is for the person in shadow who is present that they do it themselves. Okay. And if your children there and they are unable to do it themselves, then you can do it for them when they are present. Okay? If they are old enough then you should teach them so that they do it themselves. Okay. So the point is that the Prophet RS is what I'm used to do for Al
Hasan with her will her say or the line Homer when they were unable to do that themselves they were very small very young and he used to do it for them or they start to set them as a big children they should be taught to do that themselves. This is their practice okay? If they are not with you, okay, then you tell them to you teach them this is what you should be doing as parents we teach them this is what you should do good practice before you sleep okay, that's what I was dedicating it for them when they are not there then this is not correct. We don't do that. Okay, you don't do that. If you want to make dua for them, absolutely fine. So you ask Allah subhanaw taala or last mantra protected
them, guide them, provide for them, give them good nurse and so on. You make dua for them. Absolutely no problem. Okay, but this practice is for yourself, or you do it for somebody who is unable to do it for themselves. Okay? And Allah subhanaw taala dismissed.
May or may Allah Spano bless you for your question, sister. Just luckily for one, okay, so we will not go into some of those remaining WhatsApp questions that are are here.
I found out my husband takes intoxicants after we got married. What should I do?
Okay, some general advice is that Alhambra or intoxicants in any form that they come in? It is haram, no doubt, okay. There's no need for us to discuss whether it's allowed or it's absolutely not allowed.
He hid that from you before as it seems here, because he found out
that this was hidden from you, then you need to really explain this and discuss this with him. As to why was this hidden from you? To what extent is this individual drinking and and so on and so forth, which now then moves on to the next piece of advice that you probably need to speak to somebody who can give you you know, detailed answer to sit with you, he can ask you questions, or she can ask you questions, and find out how you know, how the situation is and have some you know, if you'd like tailored advice as to how to deal with a situation.
No doubt the husband needs to be advised. You need to feel less bound to leading you might need to help, okay, it's a sin we will ever since and sins come in different forms.
You know, it's at times easy for us to jump to sit you know, to conclusions or that person is doing this, I want out of this
as though we are sinless. Now, we are not saying this, we will have grown sins, and there will be sins that I'm doing far maybe could be greater than the alcohol while Ireland I don't know. So, he needs advice.
And he needs support, no doubt.
So I wouldn't say that
Maybe if you get some advice, you can speak to somebody more detailed to find out how to move, resolve this situation is Allah to Allah would be something
would be good to do Jonathan.
Somebody is asking about a dream. And if I can't, you know, I'm not qualified or able to give dream interpretation, I'm afraid. So I can't answer that. I'm afraid I do apologize. You should go to somebody who is skilled enough and is trusted, and to be known about dream interpretation. Maybe you can they can help you on that matter. Well, our
next question is I'm in 20, I'm 20 years.
So I want to start out at this age. I'm 20 years old, which types of books we'll start reading.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give a couple of examples he sent most if not all, Mayor, or the Allahu and hotel Medina to call the people of Medina before they made hijra, the call the people that unsalted who later became the unsolved call to people to SLM by the Prophet also sent more IW Jabel to Al Yemen. Now when we look at these two individuals are the Allahu and Houma they were educated people and they were also wise people. Okay, the prophet RSM didn't choose just anybody okay to go to these places and give their our and call people to Islam
to choose the right individual who has enough knowledge and enough wisdom. Secondly, the prophet Addison, you know, when teaching and telling why they have no trouble or the line when you go to Yemen. This is the first thing that you're going to call people to you know, let illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, teach them Salah and so on. So there's a methodology in giving Dawa. Okay, there was, if you'd like a priority now on any platform that you're engaged in,
okay, whether you are
you want to challenge people's trouble hurt, you want to challenge people's doubts.
Or you want to propagate Islam on your feet, if you want to see your knee offensive, that you are out there to say this Islam is has answers and solutions and they're superior to other people's ways of life and so on. And you have the ability to do that.
That's fine. The most important thing is that you yourself are grounded,
that you are grounded and are somewhat qualified enough to, to carry out the data. Okay, now you're asking what types of books Shall I start reading? Which is an excellent question. Okay.
I would advise you, as I would advise any other Muslim is for you to be firm and to focus on your own belief in Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, and don't jump to refuting Shabbat because when we made sure we had these doubts, if you just jumped straight into the deep end, in wanting to refute doubts and so on and so forth, you may not have the knowledge set to then number one not be able to deal with the doubt, but then doubts start coming to you. Okay, now those doubts that come to you doesn't mean that those doubts have actually any grounding or correct it's because of your lack of lack of knowledge. Okay, so if you're about to you know, start getting involved in that I will and calling
make sure that in Charlottetown you have some grounding in your own Dean first Okay, person then says the professors and said building one you will Oh yeah. Okay, you're gonna propagate from me even if it is one area. So this is me going out and doing that? Yes, of course. But you have to understand the context of what we're talking about here. You don't just take one Hadith and just go out there okay. A person
is involved in any situation okay. You may have learned one aspect of the Dean you go out there and then you causes problems okay, if a suitable time comes up a situation appears, manifests itself and you can explain Islam to somebody, then you go ahead and do that as for going out into you know,
the corner an example of a person goes into the battlefield, okay? And it's carrying one arrow okay, what you got to do one arrow
you know, if you go out there with a bow and many arrows and you are trained then mashallah you will be of some benefit, okay? So, it is important that when you go out into the field of Dawa and expose your, your knowledge and your belief, too many doubts and so on and so forth, okay? Make sure that you're in a situation where you don't put yourself at risk. Okay. So studying books about you know, belief in Allah subhanaw taala Iman in Elijah lo Allah
knowing the story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is extremely important to start with, okay. So if you start with this reading of Quran, okay, understanding as much as you can have the book of Allah subhanaw taala is a good starting point, and alasa pattern may not
So this question really could turn into a lecture we don't have time for that. And our loss pattern is missed.
Can I pray on my baby
by placing my hands on it?
Yeah, I mean,
if you want to make dua okay if you want to make dua to Allah Subhana Allah Oh Allah grant me an easy pregnancy Oh Allah grant me and easy bus, okay? The way to do that is not putting her on here, just to raise your hands when you're making. Okay, when you make dua, you say, Oh Allah grant me easy pregnancy, easy birth and all the URLs that you want to mention. Okay.
Whatever it is, you feel is personal to you in your own language. That's not a problem. Okay, I have the tickets of Dr. praising Allah. Okay, then asking for whatever you want. Okay, and then sending salutations upon the Prophet addresses. These are good practices for you to do. Okay, as for you making your own placing hand here, do I like this? Don't do that. I mean, the tickets have to ask for you to raise your hands. Okay. So I would advise you to do that. And I asked the last part to make it easier for your sister and all those who are pregnant or Lahoma. I mean, we've come to the end of this particular show. I'm sorry, we couldn't answer your questions. But in Charlotte
Charlotte we meet in the next shrew balaclava was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
ldeo Law Hello, LT o Masuda od M remian.
That is don't be shy.
Do in a law. He was odd.
He wasn't the only
