Yeah, you have
LD oh Lord our LT O
out of a Hema hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Obara, Karla Habitica Silikal Amin what other early he was how big marine or praise belongs to Allah made a peace and blessings of Allah Allah Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam. Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters and viewers at home Welcome to another episode of Islamic
Hamdulillah you have the opportunity to put your questions to us where we will try our very best but isn't it later out there to to clarify those questions that you have to answer those questions you have according to the authentic teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah. And the self of this particular Ummah, Rahim Allah Allah, what are the Allahu Anhu
there's two ways that you can do that in sha Allah to Allah the first one is to call us here at the studio with the telephone number that's appearing at the bottom of your screen. There's also the option of you putting your question to us via WhatsApp. So, the other number that appears on the bottom of your screens, you save that into your phone and then you can write down your question and it comes to us insha Allah Allah.
So, getting straight on to we have some
use, we have some WhatsApp questions.
the first question is, I pray Salah to tilbyr Almost every night but I fear that I am being extreme.
Okay, so to start with
seeking Allah subhanaw taala this forgiveness is something that we are all in need of, okay, we are all sinners, we all make mistakes, we all have shortcomings. And so therefore all of us are required to and we need to make repentance to Allah subhanaw taala sincerely.
Now that is done in different ways. So Allah subhanaw taala forgive us our sins in various different ways.
From those ways, and the common most common way that most people know is that a person voice will say established federal law what a tool will relay or Estelle federal law on its own, oh Allah forgive me and I repent to you, okay. Also, there are ways that
a person may do good actions. They're good actions, Allah subhanaw taala with the good actions that they have done will cancel out bad deeds and in fact Allah subhanaw taala will change those bad deeds into good deeds.
Another way is that a person goes to Salah a person goes to prayer, because then the person is saying, wait a minute, what salata tobe I've never heard of that. What's that?
How do I pray that Salah to toe but just not so we want to remove any confusion is that if a person feels that they've done wrong if a person feels that they want to ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness they can do that in Salah Okay, so they go pray to rock I for example asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness, okay, so it's not any different. It's not something like their six look at it. We need to offer all these four rock at a particular time. No, you can pray the tour rocker or however much Salah you want to offer asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness. Now if you happen to offer this, so I mentioned three ways, okay? You verbally seek forgiveness, your good
actions, remove your sins, and also going for Salah. Okay, physically going into your Salah and asking Allah azza wa jal for for forgiveness, you feel that you're being extreme?
I mean, I'm not sure why. What the reason is, maybe it's shaytaan. Maybe you feel that
for whatever reason that you are, if you're telling other people don't tell other people about these things, these are between you and your Lord. And you asking and asking for forgiveness. The Prophet I this was I mean, various narration said that I do 100 times I do a 70 times every single day. So we should be doing as Muslims as frequently as we can, asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness, doing good actions, and maybe offering Salah asking for forgiveness. So doing this is not extreme. Not doing it would be a very, very bad situation for a person because they're not asking Allah Israel for forgiveness. So doing this, and you're doing it at night, then it comes under the night
prayer. I don't see how that is extreme. May Allah subhanaw taala allow you to continue in that and it's a very, very good habit. And may Allah Allah Allah accept all of our sins I mean
is it true? Next question, is it true that if the Imam is leading the prayers, all the followers must recite Surah Al Fatiha and without that, if they don't recite al Fatiha the followers Prayer is not valid.
Okay, so this
says with regards to prayers which are recited loudly, okay, fair job, market, Asia, Aloha NASA. We'll put that to one side because most our agreement that everybody cites emphatic in that. But as for federal Micronesia, there are two views well known views on this and the valid views.
Though of the aroma, some of the element of the view that the recitation of the Imam ie that when the Imam recites so little Fatiha
in Fajr in Marguerite Benicia, then there is no need for those who are following they don't need to recite it, because his recitation is enough for them. Okay, they don't need to recite it, they listen to the email.
The other view is that the Imam recite Surah Al Fatiha and also the followers, they should also recite Surah Al Fatiha when and how it has its own kind of explanation, which we're not going to go into right now. But nonetheless, these are two well known opinions amongst different schools of thought.
And depending on the school of thought that you follow, okay, well, the chef or the imam or Mowlana, do you have asked and they give you that response that you want? That's what you follow. Inshallah Tada, okay, the the average, average Muslim, doesn't really know about these things, they ask a person of knowledge, and the answer that is given to them that is sufficient for them.
That being the case, you may find in one Masjid in one genre, there are those who are reciting a Fatiha I mean, I'm talking about the followers. So I'm reciting and others are not reciting it. Does this mean that those who are not reciting that their prayer is invalid? Absolutely not. And none of the element that they say that no one says that because they're valid opinions, they're valid approaches, each side have the evidences and understandings concerning these issues. So it is a well known difference of opinion, as I mentioned, and whatever view that you follow, that is sufficient for you in the pressure to add and may Allah azza wa jal accept everybody's prayer. And if you pray
in the fashion by reciting it or not, while longer to add
another question is to do with the month of Ruby alone, is this a virtuous month?
there are certain months there are 12 months in the year, okay, a lot of our data tells us this in the Quran, there are 12 months in the year minha arbeiten forum from them from the 12 for our sacred
Rajib okay, this is one of the sacred months, the al Qaeda was all hedger and more Harlem, these are the other three sacred months within the year
we know that
hajj is you know, performed at a particular time of the year during you know, during the days of Hajj,
we know that fighting is prohibited in these sacred months. So there are certain rulings which are applied to these sacred months for example, there is and there are virtues of course connected to those sacred months. Then there is the month of Ramadan
which Allah subhanaw taala talks about it in in some depth in Surah Al Baqarah it is the obligation which is fasting So, the month of Ramadan, what Amazon has his own virtues and have it has its blessings due to the time. Okay. Okay, so these are five months that I've mentioned to you. Is there anything specific concerning the month during the time itself? So the first Ramadan to the end of Ramadan is a virtuous time? Okay? It's a virtuous time during the year. Is it a BL o world, a virtuous time? Meaning that
you know, just as we would the Prophet, some would fast lots and lots and lots of days in Muharram is shadowline Moharram. Muharram was, this is the month of Allah, month of Allah Muharram is anything to do for a beer or when there is no a hadith or no narration, or even Hadith I should say, that specifies a virtue or for
a blessing about the time itself over a barrel of oil.
So why the question in the first place? Why would a Muslim ask well, why is it why are we talking about it at all? There's all these other ones that we know about. Why are we alone? But what we can mention are three things
that occurred and happened in this month of Ruby alone. Okay, what is the third month of the Islamic calendar comes after Mahara? Suffer, and then a bit old and then RBS Ernie
are a bit I would. I mentioned three things to you that occurred in this month. It does not make the month itself virtuous.
But the Hadith or the what occurred, is, of course, something for us as Muslims to to pay attention to and to be aware of.
So the first thing
is that the Prophet sallallahu I
He was LM was born in the month of Ruby and
what day was that exactly in the real world. This is something which the Roma, the scholars, they have different opinions on, whether it was the 12, or the 10th, or the eighth, or the eighth, or even the second earlier part of overload. So it is an issue or the exact date to which that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was born on is a matter of dispute, and difference of opinion amongst the scholars.
But this is the month in which that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was born on was born into the second one is that this is the month that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away in the same month that he was born in SallAllahu sallam, he died in it as well. So, Allahu Allah
is the second and then thirdly, and it's all to do with it. When we're studying and looking at this era of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you'll see this
as a common common time which will reveal
the third dimension to you is that the fact that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made the Hijra
made the hedgehog from Maccha to El Medina in the month over we have our Okay, now was this
by the fact that the Prophet SAW Selim made hijra in Arabic alone, was the intention of the Prophet salallahu salam to perform Hijra in the reveal Oh word because this was the month that I was born. And so no, there's there's nothing to say anything like that. It just happened. That the fact that the Prophet Allah says Allah made the Hijra with Abu Bakr Radi Allahu anhu, from Makkah to El Medina.
And these are important aspects and parts of the theater for us to to be aware of. And once you study and look through the Sierra, you'll find that this is a common denominator the fact that this was a bit old, does it make the month a sacred month? Does it make it a special month as a as as a month? No, it does not. However, there are
important aspects from an historical point of view for us as Muslims looking and studying the Sierra. These are important events for us, for us to know when studying the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanaw taala has missed
How can I prepare myself spiritually for Hajj? And what kind of life should I lead after the performance of hajj?
what I would recommend is, and you've mentioned two important stages of, of Hajj, there's the you as an individual before hudge and there's you as an individual after Hajj
and the intended result is that the person that comes back from Hajj is not the same person that went to Hajj. Okay, this is maybe the dream or the intended in this the intention of everybody when you go to Hajj, I want to be the same person, I want to be a better person.
So to make sure, best you can, if the objective or that goal is is fulfilled, then there needs to be some effort on your behalf. It's not just you know, you just go on the journey and don't do anything and just hope for the best. So you've asked two very good questions. So what can you do before you go? Well, before you go, it is very important inshallah to Allah for you to understand the rites of Hajj,
how to perform Hajj.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam said in the sound Hadith, Lolita hoodoo and Nima and seeker come, that you take from me your rites of Hajj, how you perform your Hajj, we take it from the Prophet alayhi salam, it's not for just people just to go when they like how they like any order. No, there are, in certain circumstances, a certain order to things. So on the day of our offer, you need to be an offer, you're not gonna say well, let me go the day before because it's not so busy. But let me go to the go the day after, because not so busy out of it is a particular time on the day of if you need to be there. So there's a certain order just to performing the hajj, which you must follow. And
then there are certain aspects of the Hajj, which there is some flexibility in the order that you do things. So on the day of Eid, for example, let's say after you performed after you threw your stones at the lodge Jamaat, you went straight to perform pull off, and then after that you shaved your head, okay, and then your sacrifice was done. Okay, I hear many of the other models say there's some flexibility in the audit you do that there was the best way of doing it. But there's also another way of doing things. So there's some flexibility. point being that you understand the rights
So you have some form of book or person that you've, you're studying from and learning from how to perform the Hajj that isn't A to Zed of Hajj, where you're going to be in what you're going to do. After you have an idea of, you know, what you're going to do during the Hajj, then I think is important for you to take things to the next level. So there's two levels of learning. Before you go, the first one is to actually know what you're doing. We go here we go there, we're going to do this and we're going to do that, then you start studying each aspect of what you're actually doing. So you start thinking about the Haram itself, what is it haram? What is actually mean? Okay, and
entering into the State of Iran? What is required of me? And when I make the tell via the bake, Allahumma bake, for example, what are the meanings of these phrases?
And then we start talking about when you go to you arrive in Makkah, for example, to perform your head straightaway or if you're performing or ombre, what is the importance of tawaf and what is what is the wife would say about the phrases and things that you say, during the Hajj. So you give added meanings, to the rights that you are about to perform. Imagine somebody just turns up, having not really understood what they're going to be doing.
without, without going into the detail of the purpose of why you're doing it.
So if a person is intending to go to Hajj next next year, or this year from an Islamic perspective, then they will start from now we ask Allah Azza to allow us to perform the hajj I mean, so a person starts from now to educate themselves about which could possibly just be you know, once in a lifetime journey, it's only required for you to do that once in your life. So start from now frequent, frequently looking at fickle Hajj, the meanings of Hajj, the inner meanings of how to gain spirituality and so on and so forth.
essence of Hajj, what's it all about? Okay, the journey, how it all started with Ibrahim Ali salaam, we affirming
the color or the foundations of Islam and submission and worship to Allah subhanaw taala. Then if one does that, if one does step one correctly, they can expect the Israelite to either a greater outcome in the end
in that they return a different person because the Hajj is such an impactful journey. It is such a life changing experience that you know, there are many, many stories many occasions where a person goes to hajj and then they come back and they just they completely change their outlook on life is
very much different from that when before they went performed Hajj. So
how can you prepare as I mentioned to you, and what kind of life should I lead after the performance of hajj will
have more Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala to have more fear and hope to become a better worshipper of Allah subhana these are the kinds of things that you would hope to achieve when performing the hajj Allah to Allah Allah.
Can I pray salata Shodo immediately after sunrise?
there are three times during the day, when it is not permitted for the Muslim to pray you should not pray during three particular times during the day.
And the Prophet alayhi wa salam made this clear from once you have offered Salat al Fajr had touched rock
shrimps until the sun has risen, paid or on
the sun has risen above the horizon, the length of a spear which is about 10 minutes. So once you see sunrise
on the prayer timetables you wait another 10 minutes
and then you can pray insha Allah to Allah
is that the first time during the day the second time is when the sun is at zone just before so a lot of the horror okay by about five minutes or so you don't pray at that time. And then the third time during the day is after are sought after you have offered salata Lhasa until this until Margaret at the target options until the sun has set the strike three times during the day. You don't offer the salah
according to the vast majority of the earth
Okay, so, specifically with regards to your question immediately after sunrise you should wait 10 minutes and then you can offer
salatu Baja as as you like inshallah Tada or solidly chalok If you want to call it that.
just a reminder, the brothers sisters that you can call in with your questions, which the number is appearing at the bottom of your screen, and also continue to send your questions via WhatsApp. Mobarak Alavi comm Okay,
Next question, why was the Treaty of who they be signed.
if you're aware that there is a treaty of Hodeidah year,
I assume that you may understand some of the circumstances around it.
the story is long is a very important part of the theater of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. It's a pivotal moment actually, which occurred
in the sixth year, of the Hijra.
The Prophet alayhi salatu salam had a dream to perform Amara
and imagine a year or more. Prior to that, there was the Battle of the Trench where the Muslims were under siege. Allah Subhana Allah saved them under the enemies of Islam had to return to their to their lands, whether it was the operation Mecca or been overthrown in the north.
So the Prophet arranged for them to act upon this dream wanted to perform Aurora and took with him at ISA salaam, about 1300 of the sahaba. They were prevented from making ombre as I mentioned, that the story is quite a long story. And I want to encourage you all actually to, to read that part of the Sierra.
So the Muslims were prevented from performing or Mara
and we're given permission
to perform in the next year. However, before that, there was kind of a standoff between the Muslims and the pagans of Makkah. And
the eventually the pagans of Mikado Koresh, at that time came to an agreement that came to the Prophet, additional citizens will have an agreement about how we're going to move forward. Because there was some form of standoff you can say, where there's a lot of Muslims, they want to perform their ombre, they will obviously continue to come back. And the pagans of the Quraysh. Were not happy with that. So what are we going to agree to
the Muslims, they were in an area called who they be. And this is where there was an agreement drawn up. There was an agreement agreement drawn up between the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Muslims, and the pagans of Makkah. And this set out a number of
treaties or agreements, how they would move forward. In the future, the details of that, of course, didn't have time to go through. But it was, you know, a new step for the Muslims in them dealing with one another not to shed blood not to fight anymore. So this is, you know, some of the reasons why this one was signed, and agreed between the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who represented Islam, Muslims, and the pagans of Mecca. Walter,
we have a caller on the line. So we'll take that contract and Santa Monica.
Yeah, my name is calling from Nigeria.
You're welcome, brother.
So my question is that then we hear the ruling about the dog touching mouth in the play that we used to eat that we should wash the plates seven times.
But when he does use the market, wash our clothes? Can we pray without gloves? To play the song? without gloves?
Or we need to wash the clothes consume.
What happened with the dog on the cloth? What happened?
In the mouths of the dog? Yeah.
So is the man mouth of the dog this push that is purchasing our clothes.
Do we need to wash their clothes?
Okay, do you say urinated on the cloth on the place of
business? No, you enjoy the mouse. Just
put the mouse okay, it's clear brother. What question is clear? Your question is clear. May Allah bless you brother
Okay, so the brother is asking about
the cleaning process.
If a dog's saliva that comes into contact with some closing.
Now the well known Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the will of Al Kell boo we in a hadith value of a sailor who said the hula hula butter up
that if the dog drinks from your vessels, then you should wash it seven times. The first of them should be with dust. Is this applied? If he happens to touch your clothing and so on and so forth? We will shout it out later. We say the same process even if it's on your clothes, and Allah's Pantone has missed. We've come to the end of the first part. Inshallah, please join us after the break, where we will continue answering your questions and shall notify them. Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Yeah, are you
LTE was our only
Mila hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah bad Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back brothers and sisters to the second part of Islamic
just before the break our brother from Nigeria Giselle Hello Hara asked the question just to make it clear inshallah Tada concerning the process of cleaning after a dog
as we know the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that if a dog is to do was to drink from one of your vessels, then you wash it seven times the first time with to rob if the dog similarly does something with a part of your clothing and things like that, should you wash it the same process and Charlotte and at the same process processes is done in Charlotte Charlotte to ensure it is it is cleaned. Okay.
So Jim knows best.
We have a caller on the line Santa Monica. I confirm. Yes, brother. I've got a question on under comments.
Start with a comment if you'd like, you know, start with what you'd like actually, go ahead. Yeah. Can you recommend two or three books in English on the theater? Okay.
So the comment is I watched your podcast on the weekend. And I'm very happy that your mother became Muslim. Oh, thank you brother just like a locket. Thank you so much radical avec. Allah bless you. From icon welcome, Samantha.
Okay, so the mother has requested to know about some CLR books.
And what I would,
what I recommend?
Well, you know, what I
would encourage is what my, my teachers always recommended to me
and starting to read about the life of the prophet is that there is the, if you like,
factual, historical approach in learning about the CLR of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, so there's a series of events that happened and things like that, that's also that's very important. But along with studying this era, there are other aspects that we can benefit from the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, okay. So
what I mentioned here is obviously available in English, the well known ones, the seals, nectar is very good. The when the moon is split, it's a shortened version, somewhat of the, the seals nectar. These are two good books and Charlottetown also mentioned that there it's been translated into English, the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam by Imam and now we so this particular book by Imam and never we got to him our law talks about the name talks about
the facts or around the Prophet sallallahu Sallam family, children, his wives, some events that occurred during his life so and this is quite a small book so it's a good book to start on. Okay, it's about the life of the prophet so on So limb,
written by Imam and now we got to him a whole lot.
This is also very good book. I'd also recommend and there is an explanation to go with.
This book is Shama. Shama al Maha Maria. The description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Bhai momentarily the era him a whole lot.
And this describes describes the Prophet alayhi wa sallam his physical and his physical appearance, his actions, how he dealt with people all around the Prophet LSS for them, this is called a description of the prophets alongside them
by Imam Timothy, I also recommend that book, yes. And these books is basically a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam but has an explanation that goes along beside that. I would also recommend that
other theater books because many of them that I've read or revert you back to the ER
and the Arabic language and most of them are non English, Imam Ibn can see it as a very good book called for sold FISI ratar o Rasool, ALLAH, Rasool Fie, Sirat Rasul. So it's a very, very good book by Imam Ibn because he's the one who's done the same. The author of the Tafseer have saved MacArthur, Atlas in Arabic. And there are some other books that have been written
while sitting who are living our time are very, very beneficial books.
Called a fickle Ciara. Understanding and benefits from this era by Chef Abdelkarim. Zaid, again, it's an Arabic book, but it's a very, very good book.
A certain number we feel almost local Masada, la Solea which
translates as The Sierra of the prophets Allah says in light of the authentic sources, this is a very very good book inshallah as well.
So, these are some of the books I would recommend.
May Allah azza wa jal give us understanding of the life of our beloved Habib Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And
as we know that Allah subhanaw taala tells us calling condemned to hipbone, Allah have a tabby Rooney people from Allah,
that indeed, if you love Allah subhanaw taala, then follow the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and us as Muslims,
those people who should be following and learning from the life of the greatest man that ever lived, and the more that we know about him, salallahu Alaihe Salam, the more we will love him the more we will appreciate the struggle and his service to Allah subhanaw taala which is unparalleled. It is unequal to Subhan Allah
because he raised Salam is the one who taught us our deen
then we should have this attachment and love to him and that can only come about by knowing him. So the brothers asked a very, very good question about what types of books specifically what Sierra books you know, those well known CRM books that are based upon authentic sources, a Shiva by
the author I forget now Subhanallah what was
a Shiva you find the book is could you call about the life of the prophet Adam Schiff Africa, the author now Subhan Allah, there's another very good book
about the life of the prophet Sallallahu Sallam his characteristics, his behavior and so on and so forth.
So these are things that we should be concentrating on. It's like a locket.
Next question. If I'm late for salata, Asada due to unforeseen circumstances and was able to pray just before the market a bit of then? Is it acceptable? Since it's one of the prohibited times to perform salah?
Well, it's not prohibited for you because you haven't often that you haven't prayed it. So it's not prohibited for you. Okay, so it's a matter of perspective, prohibited times, meaning that if you've already prayed are sought, then you don't pray at that time. Okay. When I spoke about earlier about prohibited times, that once
you've prayed for God until the sun rises and add another 10 minutes to that that's a prohibited time you don't offer any prayer. But if a person hadn't prayed for a job, is this a prohibited time was not prohibited if you haven't prayed it?
So it's a matter of perspective, actually, because you haven't prayed it? And you mentioned due to unforeseen circumstances, it wasn't your fault, you're not, you know, blameworthy for that. So you offer that salah, and may Allah azza wa jal accept the Salah from you. And anyone in that position, the person wouldn't say, Oh, I'm going to you know, this is a prohibited time they wait for Maghrib to come in, and then they offered the answer. This is a mistake, you don't do that.
You're technically still within the time.
And so therefore, you need to offer the pressure on Atari and it's time.
Another issue is that delaying salata Lasota until this time, is highly disliked. Okay, this is another issue, that there's no circumstances where you can delay or you don't do it. No, no, I just delayed my answer until maybe 1015 minutes before Maghrib
as the Prophet salallahu Salam, this is like the prayer of the monarchy, because it's like the prayer of the hypocrite that they only offer it when they have to. So you should avoid doing that. And you should pray so a lot of us are in his earlier time and a last part and is missed. And don't forget preserving the prayer times in their times is is part of your your effort every single day to make sure the office Salah and it's time. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to be from those who established the prayer and it's time correctly in a way that is befitting to Allah subhanaw taala and best that we can we ask Allah Allah to accept from us all I mean, we've come to
the end of the show today, but ancestors and viewers at home may Allah subhanaw taala bless you all. And until we see each other again, on the show next week inshallah Giacomo Clara assalam Alikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Yeah, you have
That is done as vision
do in a law he was already
he was only a woman
