Allah Allah Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my diva and the sisters and Musa Houma Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and welcome to a new episode of Islamic while you are given the opportunity to put your questions to us. And we will try our very best but isn't it later Allah to answer the questions according to the Quran, and Sunnah. And according to the sound understanding
of our pious predecessors,
you have a couple of options. In contacting us there is the telephone number, which appears intimidating at the bottom of your screen you can call us in straightaway. And if you call the lines open now you'll get through straightaway inshallah Tada and you can put your question to us. Also, you have the option of putting your question to us
via the WhatsApp. So there's also a global looks like a mobile number there. If you put that phone number into your phone, you save it and then you
write your question to that particular number through the WhatsApp application. That question will reach us inshallah to Allah and we'll try to answer the question
with that inshallah. Tada. Someone has got straight on the phone and has called us so we'll take the first call of the show Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa they can wants to know a little better go to Sheikh
Hasina actually, okay. Yeah, I'm very well 100 roboticle avec se, shareholder. I'm studying the Quran over the weekend, studying
the verses of the Quran over the weekend.
And one of the ayatollahs who mentioned that, to refrain from shake,
and then straight after that, it mentions be kind to your parents.
But so obviously, it's
important to be kind to your parents. I don't think many
of our families understand that to worship Allah subhanaw taala. There's a correlation on how you treat and respect your parents.
Okay, that's what I want to convey a message through you is how important Okay shall May Allah bless you?
Okay, so the brothers asking about a verse that he had gone through a verse in Surah 27 Well, a lot of Aquila says where I would Allahu Allah to should equal be he che or Bill Worley they need Santa
that the transmission the meaning of this particular verse when a lot of Baraka Allah commands us to worship Allah alone, wow. But Allah, worship Allah and do not associate any partners with him. Do not commit should with him. subhanho wa Taala
or Bill Wiley Dini center, and then immediately after that you show goodness and righteousness to your parents. Now, commenting on this hadith really could be
a suitable title for a lecture, talking about the adopt or the link between
worshiping Allah subhanaw taala and then being good to one's parents. No doubt, as we know, in the Hadith, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, tomorrow's immutable. Do you know the HAC of alojado EBIT? Do you know the right of Allah over his slaves,
and the right of the slaves of Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam responded by saying, Hakala he island a bird, that the right of Allah over his servants is that we worship Him alone, and do not associate any partners with him. So this is the greatest right? That Allah subhanaw taala has over us. And this is fulfilling our purpose, fulfilling the purpose of our creation, because we know that Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he did not create gin or mankind except to worship Him.
So worshiping Allah subhanaw taala, in all of its manifestations, and all those different ways, is fulfilling our purpose and why we are here.
Then, of course, with regards to the creation, the first part of the verse is talking about the Creator. The second part of the verse is talking about the creation, those who have greatest right over us from the creation or our parents,
that they have a debt
over us that any son or daughter can never ever pay back.
Therefore, Allah subhanaw taala commands us straight after reminding us that the right of Allah, the right, the right of the creator, the right of the creation,
and that is to worship. That is what is going to be
good way to one's parents to be righteous and serve them.
This particular topic again, as I mentioned, is a very important topic and there are different
you know, aspects to that. Whether you go through the verses in, you know, some of them in solitary sloth, or pseudo to Lachman where Allah subhanaw taala
further talks about, you know,
us being merciful to our parents making dua for our parents, if our parents, there's an exception to that tell us to do something wrong or against Islam, then we have the right to say no, refrain from that because the obeying the Creator
takes precedence over obeying the creation, even know that the parents are those who have most right over us. So this is one of the benefits of today burrowed Quran of pondering over the Quran mashallah the brother was telling us they were studying some of the verses of the Quran we should do that from time to time.
Maybe pick up a simple Tafseer very famous ones is Tafseer Saturday, which has now been translated into English language. This will be a good thing to do to go through the Quran, some verses and increase your understanding and knowledge of the verses of Allah subhanaw taala May Allah subhanaw taala increase us and TOEFL success. I mean, we have another caller on the line of Santa Monica, what it was salam alaikum to low but I got to check I'm not in front of the TV because I'm away. Another question to ask. This is about the DUA. There are times in a person's life where he just calls out to Allah, like in emergency like he says, what the ethics says one is to actually first
praise Allah then since as you change the prophets and then make your request, what if there's an emergency where he just needs to call out to Allah? Is that funny superfine to do or because sometimes you don't have time to like, you know, to say something to like praise Allah and and do sense detection. So I'd like to know that if that's allowed,
Okay, brother Metis pantalones.
So, the brother is asking about,
and mentioned alluded to the optimum way of making dua is to praise Allah subhanaw taala to remember Allah subhanaw taala to ask for whatever you are requesting for and then you know, you mentioned salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So where a person may be in Salam maybes include or outside of that situation is fairly calm, they have the, you know, the, the sense of mind to, to have that kind of dab of good manners in good practice in in making the DUA. Okay, so if you can do that, that's an optimal way of doing it. However, at times a situation, a situation is that you don't have time because you are, have a situation that shocked you, or a situation that's taken
you aback and you don't think to stop praising Allah subhanaw taala, other than asking for your supplication and then,
you know, sending salutations upon the Prophet Allah, if one hypothetically said, in a difficult situation, a lot helped me or, you know, grant me health or whatever your application, is that permissible? Yes. Is this permissible? Yes. And it's not to say that your supplication
won't be rejected, they won't be answered.
What I would refer you to all Psalm verses, in Surah, Al Baqarah. And these particular verses in Surah turnbuckle, that Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he will do indeed he will test us with different things, whether it's loss of life, loss of provisions or loss of wealth.
Allah subhanaw taala gives us a procedure that we should follow
that those people either also about whom masiva that if a calamity befalls them, meaning that you're going to be in a state of shock, or in early Allah who in LA Raji rune, okay, that you say indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him we will return. Now, don't always think that when you make it, it needs to be the asking for something. There could also be their own Ibadah or do Asana. If you want to say in other words, which translate says, the supplication of mentioning Allah's Name, and you know, internally what your need is, you know, if you think about the dua of Yunus or a salaam when he was in the belly of the whale.
What did he asked for the d say,
Oh Allah save me from the situation
that I am in no, he didn't he he mentioned Allah subhanaw taala the
canary in the coalmine of volume in glory be to you I was from the wrongdoers but ALLAH SubhanA, Allah saved him. So, in times of shock,
the most important thing is that you remember Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, that as the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that the real
essence of patience to submit to Allah is when the initial shock afflicts you,
showing Patience by mentioning Allah subhanaw taala. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from calamities, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to react in the correct way if we're ever afflicted with any calamity. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for anyone who is or is going through a particular calamity that Allah subhanaw taala is there to help you just call upon Allah, Allah, Allah, and he will make it easy for you. It's just upon us to have reliance and trust upon Allah subhanaw taala that he will alleviate and make things easy for us. And Allah subhanaw taala has missed.
Okay, so we have a couple of questions that have come through
through the WhatsApp.
So I have issues with my marriage, my husband is failing to carry out his responsibility as a husband. When our rent was increased, he asks me to contribute to the rent, this is a behavior.
He's used to over 20 years of marriage, my love has decreased.
As I feel the marriage is only to satisfy our desires.
Am I sinful for feeling like this? Okay, so
what I would say is,
first and foremost,
in this small paragraph, it's difficult for me to give you the perfect solution.
In what is an ongoing issue between you and your husband.
So maybe if you can sit with your husband, first and foremost, I'm not telling you to go outside and start seeking advice from other people, when it if it can be resolved within your home, then that would be best. Okay? That if you have children, if you've been married for 20 years, maybe you have children, that you see your responsibility, quite rightly so in looking after your children, and the husband's role is to spend on his family, okay, look after his wife and his family financially, that his, that's his responsibility, absolutely no doubt in his head, and he has to financially support his family.
We're living in times where things have become very expensive,
whether it's to do with rent, or energy, or food, or whatever the case may be, and maybe his wage doesn't cover all of that. So maybe it's something you can discuss us to find what the best solution is.
It's important that you both have clear understandings of what both of your roles are in your marriage.
So if you see your husband as the one who is the going to coin a phrase, a breadwinner, the one who looks after you, and looks after the family, financially, external issues. And he doesn't see it that way, then this is probably what you're deferring. So it's important for you to come to an understanding as to what you both understand what your responsibilities are. Okay. So if he sees that, well, I expect you to look after the family and also contribute to the family. And he sees himself as I don't see myself really looking after children. But I will just do a partial kind of contribution to the home home financially, and you see yourself doing maybe 60, or 70%, of keeping
the home going and he's only doing 30%
There's an imbalance there. So you need to rebalance the situation by both speaking to one another, and defining what you think is, is best in Charlottetown. If you're unable to do it yourself, then maybe a family member can advise you, somebody who's just was fair looking at the situation. And if that's not an issue, or that's not an option, then you can maybe speak to maybe a person of knowledge or somebody who can advise you as wise on this issue as to how to resolve your situation.
Most important thing is not to keep it this way to communicate with one another and to find a solution as quick as you can inshallah to Allah Allah Allah
what is the best path becoming a student of knowledge?
So, you know, seeking knowledge, Balaban LM is one of the
highest and very best acts of voluntary eBUY that that you can do.
And in all of our communities, there needs to be those people who, who seek knowledge.
There's a very noble act in wanting to seek knowledge and seeking knowledge is essentially is taken
As you know, the Prophet alayhi salam told us that the prophets do not have belongings to for their families to inherit, which comes in the form of their hands and dinars, you know, gold and silver, but what they inherit for people to take is knowledge and the trilemma or whatever tool Ambia the scholars or the inheritors of the Prophets the scholars that are lemma are the inheritors of the prophets by the knowledge that is taken. So, knowledge is taken from it ultimate knowledge is taken from scholars knowledge is taken from students of knowledge who are also seeking knowledge but are at the higher level. So, if we understand this process, that knowledge is taken from
his people and knowledge as it is written down
and preserved in books, but one doesn't just jump to books and just start reading books and things like cars you'll make many mistakes. So, you try to find a knowledgeable person that you can take your knowledge from, with a sincere intention of wanting to do this too. So you can worship Allah subhanaw taala better remove ignorance from yourself remove ignorance from those who around you to benefit your community. These are all intentions that you should have inshallah Tada so that you seek knowledge for the correct reason you're not seeking knowledge to become famous, you're not seeking knowledge to become famous, anything like this you know this is
goes completely against the purpose of seeking knowledge to become well known. That's not what it's about, okay.
We are living very trying times when I say very trying times that the temptation for people to make money become well known become famous is is very strong the pull towards it is is very strong. And as Muslims you know, you might not want to become a rapper or a singer. So what do you do? So, what you do is you become you know,
you become a student of knowledge, go on the social media and you can
you can take that path, this is something you should try to avoid. So, inshallah Tada you take the correct path and listening to the scholars students of knowledge and then Allah subhanaw taala will open the way for you may Allah spans on the crease us all in knowledge Amin.
Okay, so I wanted to ask about my me and my wife, I am praying always but she keeps on giving excuses not to pray because of work. What can I do, please?
why do we work?
Why do we work? We work? I mean, you from West Africa and mashallah, you live in the Middle East.
So, you've moved to the Middle East that hamdulillah Allah's Panther opened a way for you to go there. And for you to stay in your property for you to pray to pay the rent, you need to work, okay, you're not working for nothing. You're working because you want to sustain the level of quality of life that you have in the Middle East. Mashallah. Okay. So that's why you work. Okay.
There's a purpose that is an objective, why you are working to keep your homes
to keep your lifestyle? What do you do?
So working preserves your, you're doing your lifestyle? Yes. Okay. What do you do that preserves your Islam?
What are you
doing from one day to the next, to ensure that you are preserving and protecting your your Islam, and hamdulillah you're excelling, in preserving your worldly existence by working so you can pay your rent and you can live in a nice country and you can have you know, air conditioning and nice food. You're exercising all of your efforts to do that, to preserve and protect that What are you doing as a Muslim to protect your Islam? Or is it that you believe that Islam is something that you may be set once upon a time? You know, or you inherited? You're born into a Muslim family and then it just goes into the top pocket? You know, Islam is in here.
And you know, when I need my Islam card,
maybe I'm having difficulty at work. Maybe I lose my job. Now I raise my hands Oh Allah help me. Oh Allah save my job. Oh, Allah allow me to increase my provisions and my risk. And all the months before that, that there Salah your obligations towards Allah subhanaw taala. The Islam was was behind it wasn't it wasn't important. It wasn't a priority. Allah subhanaw There was not a priority in your life.
So I would say things like this to be honest with you
I'm paraphrasing, it may come across a little bit direct and what I'm saying but the matter is very important to be honest with you keeping your Salah is keeping your link with Allah subhanaw taala cutting your Salah means cutting your link with Allah
and if you cut your link with Allah you cannot expect you cannot expect anything back any sad any happiness in this life woman or other indicative for another level, my age at some point in level Marisha isn't going to whoever turns away from my remembrance will have a sad life. Okay.
Now you may be trying to pick pick examples. Well, I know somebody, they don't mention Allah. And look how happy they are. The cow which they are, you're judging the person's happiness by how much wealth they have. The richest people can be from the saddest people on us. real sad the real happiness is a sad is the happiness that Allah spent on places in your heart. Okay, and this is gained not through money. This is gained through remembering Allah subhanaw taala and fulfilling your
obligations towards the last Pantanal. Allah azza wa jal will give you this. Tomatina this satisfaction and this happiness that you won't find anywhere else. So not praying because of work is not an excuse.
Okay, let's just be open and frank here okay, if you're Muslim, you have to pray. You have to Oh you have to pray. You can't expect that I'm Muslim and then for Allah subhanaw taala behind you
five times a day Allah is in front of you, you put your head on the floor and be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala that it will he guided to to you and that what he gives you Okay, so this is the reality of a Muslim that you are a servant of Allah subhanaw taala we all have cell by date one day we all die, okay, and we will be buried. Okay, then you will face your Lord.
What are you going to say if you're not praying? I was busy with my work.
Well, who gave you the work? Who opened the way for you to live in a different country and have all these mashallah nice things? You did that you think you did this? So what was our last year?
Last month or last month our guidance will allow us to remain firm upon the salaat because the first thing you're going to ask about the ask about on your 1pm if it is good everything that follows is good. If it is bad, then everything that follows will be in line with that
our products from the Dead Sea okay to us.
the Dead Sea is an area in which the punishment of a lot of other Kota either fell upon or people
those people who were engaged in disobedience to Allah subhana wa Tada Allah Allah Allah mentions this very clearly in the Quran. Very clear, okay. For the disobedience for the social disobedience,
the people of loot, the period people of Lord ra Salem, loot the great Prophet, Lord RSM, he is called was destroyed for the social disobedience.
This is an area which Muslims do not benefit from
for a whole lot. So it is better because this place is connected to that area. Therefore, the salts and things like that you should avoid using them. Okay, you should avoid using them. The prophets Allah said whenever you would pass through an area or close to a place where the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah was he would pass through quickly and the last pattern is missed. We'll come to the end of this first part, so part so please join us on the other side, which is awkward Okay, that was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
M re mu.
spendable hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back when sisters I do believe we have a couple of callers on the line which will take now Charlotte Allah Salam aleikum.
Jenna Yes. Whether
you are with
we are okay. But um, my friend.
Was she always giving speeches because of job? No.
So we have been quarreling all the time. At one. Anthony, Tunisia, listening, watching on TV.
Now, the next question, so
hold on, hold on. Before you go to the next question. So are you asking that your wife is not praying because she's making work as an excuse?
Yes, I just answered this before the break. Did you did you put the question to me?
Yes, I do.
Okay. 100. So you have another question.
I was talking to one of my friends we used
to progress was not a band is about to replicate and she's
like like for example our
Salah and make dua
then after dwell I robbing my
so my friend was telling me
yes so I want to know I mean
right so I don't know what to do or not so you're talking about wiping the face off to do is that what you're asking?
Yes sorry okay I'll answer that insha Allah may Allah bless you brother
just like a locket
May Allah bless you and your chakra next Nicola
Soleimani comments Cora
got two quick questions.
First one is, between the two prostrations must you say a door
theory to smoke the must have done don't state that. Okay. Second question is at the start of prayer. The first type of beer
do you touch your
ears of your thumbs?
Okay, so Allah may Allah bless you brother. So my company consider moto moto Allah. Okay.
Okay. Some good questions that Mashallah.
The first question from our brother is about after or when we are making do we raise our hands?
from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to do that. After you finish up.
You seem to be doing that? Do they do this? Should I do that or not? You wipe your face.
Now there are a number of various narrations concerning wiping the face.
After making drought.
The majority of the scholars of Hadith are of the view
that the supplication or the Hadith concerning this, our wife that week.
So therefore, because the narrations on wiping the face of the dura are weak, we wouldn't do that. Okay. We are not saying it is better? No, it is not big enough to do that. Because there are some irlam some scholars who said that maybe one or two of the narrations can be raised to the level of good Hassan Okay, well, this is a minority view, the majority say it is weak. So of the view, Allah Adam that you don't wipe your face off the dirt.
But if a person has asked another scholar and a scholar said, yeah, you go ahead. Okay, that person is following the scholar they have the evidence, but to claim is a bit there is innovation haram. Oh, no, you can't say that. Okay.
Asking me personally, from what I know, on the issue with regards to the
what I've learned from my teachers and whatnot, that the generations are weak, and you don't wipe your face after making dua, before you sleep. When you read the three holes, yes, you wipe your whole body. Okay, but this is something else. And Allah subhanaw taala has missed.
We have a caller on the line of salaam aleikum,
WA, salaam, laundry, I have three questions.
One is straight away about the door. That do you have to join your hand when you're raising your hand, or it can be sort of separate as well.
And you have to read sort of looking up?
Cause rather than just okay, there's still a crossover.
Next question. Second. Second, is that we are so classically weak in forming prayers
and on time. So all with all sorts of weaknesses, especially when we are going out. It's almost like Oh, I know I want to go out. And it's gonna take two, three hours or whatever, whatever. I'll come and be still you're in time, but we're not doing in on time. Or push comes to shove, I'll do
this weakness, how do we get rid of it? And what do we do when we knowing that this is a first finish?
The third one is about if you can elaborate, if not to date to live times with is that in discussion wherever? Yes, Allah subhanaw taala is ordained
And if we don't, we just have to accept it. But you know, for example, why can't the youngsters who are saying, Oh, I fell in love, or I know this girl, or boy, and he's prepared to become Muslim? And then why can't we marry? Why are men allowed to marry non Muslim women? And why women in Congress, but to consider in the real life this question
is not a sin, I'm just reasoning or to even discuss it with the youngsters or with people. It is very sad, not easy discussion.
So how do we, you know,
how do we open this Pandora's box in a gentle way? Without no disrespect to Allah's order? Yes, is there
so in the real life issues the issue, especially,
you know, even for cons, you spoke on educated feature, hang on and say, what this person is saying, I'm willing to take shahada one thing, and at least he's gonna try it. Is it worth the try for that person? Okay. I'm confused with that. So I'd be grateful if you can post them like Thank you. Thank you, Bella. Monica Lovick.
Nationals. Very good questions. Yeah.
Going back to the call earlier that the brother asked a couple of questions regarding to the scimitar Salah, the description of the prayer. And that is between the two prostrations while in you know, you've gone down for surgery, would you say subhanallah beer either? A number of times and then you say Allahu Akbar, come on, you sit
in this at this time, do you say anything?
there are some of the elements. Some of them are mother one mother half says saying are a bit fiddly is an obligation.
The other element say that you say a little bit fiddly, but not as an obligation. It's done. It's recommended for you to say about Bill fiddly. What honey? What is up any module that extensions to that particular but the very least that you can say at this particular time between the two frustrations is a bit fiddly, which means Oh my Lord, forgive me or be my Lord is fiddly forgive me. So this is the list that you should say, inshallah to add at this particular time and there's no part of the prayer that you just not saying anything. Okay, every part of the previous stage of the prayer saying something. So between the two prostrations, you say you're a bill fiddly, and
according to the school of thought that you are studying, there are those who say it's an obligation there are those who say, it is recommended for you to say to say that, okay, and Allah is Pantone has missed. The second question about the hat is touching the ear lobes, the beginning of the Salah. So to be able to haram or the first saying Allahu Akbar, when you begin your prayer, your hands, there are narrations which say that they are level with monkey Bay, which is the two shoulders. Okay. And there are other innovations which says, either was a knee or lamb it wasn't that the, the flesh part of your ear. The fun part if you like, is level with that. Okay, so it's not touching is
not touching. Okay? No, there's no narration saying you touch the air from profits all of a sudden, but level with so whether it's here, level with your shoulders are slightly higher up to your ear than Okay, in short, are both acceptable as we're touching like this and then No, there's nothing there's nothing to support that more correct ways that your hands are palms of your hands or you know facing like this curved in like this, but they are straight. Okay, straight like this level with your shoulders, as I mentioned, or with your ears not touching Okay, level in terms of height all over Ireland.
Then the next caller asked about joining hands or the manners or how when you are with your hands. You know, you see many people if you've maybe watched taraweeh on the TV, okay, you're there and you see people doing this. You see people doing this? You see people doing this there's so many people what they're doing okay, was the correct way.
The professor said him a cup his hands. Palms, okay, now facing in. Okay, not scrunched up like this palms facing up like this. fairly close together. Okay, very close together. Touching. It's okay. No problem. I mean, if a person to do that is haram, there's no reason these Muslim is haram for you. You raising your hands is a good thing to do. But if you're looking for something closest to what the prophets racism used to do, would be like this with the hands cupped like this. Okay, when I say that, I mean, like this. Just palms facing like this up like this fairly close together. Okay, level with your shoulder. Okay. You can see your shoulders like this
Just in front of you, okay. This is how the perfect person would make. As you're looking up the note, if you're in Salah, Salah you certainly don't be looking up. Okay, the place of frustration. And looking up, if you're outside of Salah, is it recommended for you to look up? No not necessarily remain humble in your heart. And
the difference between inside and outside of course, the readings were different, of course, right, you're in Salah, you will your vision will be at the place more than sujood the place of frustration. If a person outside of outside of the solid anytime raising made the hand that they looked up leverage, there's no problem in that. We're looking to add
the brother and asked a couple of questions
about prayer times, and people sometimes going out for two or three hours and then it's in their intention, I'll just make a cup up. I'll just, I'll just make it up at the end. It's all about priorities, whether and
when we're advising anybody concerning the Salah, and its prayer times. It's all about what I you know, this is something that a lot about the IRA, obligated upon his heart cup on the creation to offer Salawat five daily prints. Okay. This is the most important obligation that you're offering every single day.
It's a priority. Absolutely. It's the first thing you're going to be asked, as I mentioned earlier on the show is the first thing you're going to be asked about in your PMI.
So therefore, what do you prioritize, you prioritize going shopping, going mall doing this doing that there are certain circumstances where you're a traveler Hamdulillah, you can join a short and a prayer.
However, if you're not a traveler, then you don't have the liberty as you choose. I'm going to make cover later, or just make it up later. Who gave you this permission?
Who gave you this permission just to offer Salawat when you like
you know, even between us, if you have a debt, or if you an appointment to meet somebody.
If you say to somebody, I'm going to meet you at two o'clock. And you say to them, you don't say anything? I'll turn up at four o'clock, would you do that? You wouldn't do that.
So there are set appointments for certain things. If you go to the doctor, even more so maybe more than 10 minutes late, don't even bother turning up. If you have an appointment of the dentist or the doctors or the hospital, you're going to turn up late for that appointment. You certainly won't why? Because a court missed the appointment. It's important as my health
if you have an appointment to offer your Salah, offer it in its time.
And if then you start talking about it was maybe I don't know maybe the person is not even thinking about
does Allah accept what I'm doing? We have to think about that. We have to have the hope that Oh ALLAH is Ponta is all forgiving, you know, I'll just offer it when I like you know, Allah Subhana Allah will accept that really, you can who gave you that guarantee. So therefore by the sisters, do not be
lazy and don't
give Salah a low priority. Okay, if you want success and happiness, then offer your Salawat in its time, plan your day around the prayer. Prepare take a small you know prayer mat sogno on interpreting the floor calm pray on the floor as a prayer mat, okay, that folds up and puts in your pocket. Okay when you take it out with you because you are fearful that what you're going to pray is not
people will be walking around me because of me. It might be clean but you want to pray on a mat then fine. You can put it in a bag.
Take that with you be aware of the Salawat times and right where can I be Can I plan your journey? Can I offer my salah in a changing room somewhere? As many options no excuse for us, okay? So don't put the
the prayer priority the prayer low on your priorities because that means that you're putting a lot of our equity ala low on your priority. That is the reality okay? So don't do that. May Allah Subhana Allah help us or me? Okay. The other issue that
Allah subhanaw taala is Dean is perfect ally Alma Kamala to welcome the unicorn word to them to add a coordinate Murthy what are the two local Melissa Medina. This is this verse revealed to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam on the day of alpha. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made Hajj, the only Hajj in his life. Allah Allah Allah Allah revealed the verse in Surah Tolima, Ada, that today I have completed my religion for you,
and perfected my favorite upon you and named Islam as your religion. Everything that is in the DNA of a lot of acredita Allah is in the Messiah is in the benefit of mankind. Anything other than that will be harmful to them, no matter how or whatever lenses that they are viewing that through, okay? The guidance of Allah Subhana Allah is the best of guidance.
Allah subhanaw taala is guidance can
covers all shapes of life. The young, the old, the traveler, the resident, the man, the woman, not all rulings are the same for everybody because we are different okay. They we are different Therefore Allah Subhana Allah revealed guidance which is suitable for all different types of people, a brother comes into the masjid or comes into the office and he loves a particular individual. However that person is a follower of a religion that Allah subhanaw taala did not permit for a man a Muslim man to marry for example a polytheist okay
not people with the book people have a different talking about somebody who is following another religion because I love her She Loves Me want to marry Islam a lot about what Allah did not permit a man to marry but I love her. Yeah, he the matter of what is in your heart is one thing. We want to follow Allah as guidance. This is the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala you want to follow your own thing under How are you living in the country you can do what you like, if you want the ruling of Allah subhanaw taala This is the ruling of Allah subhanaw taala you accept you accept Alhamdulillah May Allah is which will give you the best and substitute you with something that is better. This is
the deen of Allah Subhana Allah. We're not here to mold Islam to this bowl and 20 to 2022 now in the modern age No, it's about this is, you know, doesn't quite look quite right. We'll just break this off. And we'll just take that off, and we'll just change the ruling here. Look how much I made this laminate wood nice and beautiful now, just as because this is how I live my life, okay.
Otherwise everyone's gonna have their own Islam.
You got your Islam, your version, your version, your version, your version, what was the point of sending the prophets or some to teach mankind? Okay. So on issues where a person doesn't agree with marriage rulings
and they want to go to a back street,
Back Street, you know street and get you know, some fatwa from so called Boehner, you know,
quote, marks his Imam, he gave me nine justifications to go against 1400 years of scholarship, really 1400 years. All the scholars of Islam are sahab the tabby and they had one ruling concerning whom women are allowed to marry whom men are allowed to marry. And then this person, masha Allah, Allahu Akbar, he suddenly found reasons to say no, no, they are all wrong. For 1400 years of Islam, Islamic scholarship, they're all wrong. I'm right. You're allowed to go ahead and do it. Okay. No, but he was to become Muslim. You will become Muslim. What do you think Islam is a T shirt? Islam is a T shirt. Look, I'm a Muslim.
Islam is not a t shirt. Islam is not a cap that you wear.
Islam is submission to Allah subhanaw taala following Allah's guidance and guidance of the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam Okay, so we don't play with the religion, okay? We don't play with Allah Subhana Allah is rules. If these are the rules for us, we abide by them. Even if my desires are somewhere else, I have to curb my desires, curb what I want, and fall in line with what Allah Subhana Allah wants from us. That is real success and that is part of my servitude and submission to Allah subhanaw taala Okay, so as Muslims, you want to put it really we're not in the business of tailoring is people's Islam as you like it, Islam is what it is, we'll alone hand it is from Allah
subhanaw taala and is not in need of any change. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us and allow us to fall in within the guidance of what is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala I mean, we've come to the end of this particular show brothers sisters are asked last week to have mercy upon us all.
