And we will try our best to shadow to Allah to answer them according to the Quran and Sunnah. Now you have a couple of options a shot at data to contact us number one is the
traditional way, if you like the old fashioned way of calling us on your telephone, and the number is appearing at the bottom of your screen, that's the first way you can contact us and that's the priority. Rather, the telephone calls are given priority. So if you call you'll get stripped through try to dial it will answer your question straight away but isn't allowed to either. If you're unable to call us, then you can use your mobile device and send us your question via the WhatsApp application. So the number that's also appearing at the bottom of your screen is a different number. Of course.
You save that into your phone and add it as one of your
part of your phonebook your recipients and then you send a message to that number. We'll get the question here in the studio, and we'll answer those questions inshallah. Tada. So while we are waiting for you to dial the number, send your question via WhatsApp I want to mention a hadith and the hadith is reported by a boy with a lovely 30 What are the Allahu Anhu
and it is reported by a Bharati or Rahim Allah to Allah in his managerial career.
One of the great Hadith scholars of the past His name is Mr. Motta Bharani Rahim Allah and he has a number of Hadith books.
And more of them is called El Mirage, which is if you'd like to be translated literally as like a dictionary. But he authored or compiled these Hadith books into a large one, a medium sized one, and a smaller one.
In the large book that he compiled is called El Mirage ml KB is the logic dictionary of a hadith in which he narrated a number of generations depending on the companion and this companion will have a look at 30 Radi Allahu Anhu. He said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
ma Baka che on your caribou mineral Jannati while you were a Domina nerdy ill Walker the Butina Lacan
this hadith translates that nothing remains rakia shake.
Except or No, there's nothing that remains which will bring you close to the paradise or take you away from the hellfire. Except it was made clear to you. This hadith is Asahi snad also he is an authentic narration
and one of the beautiful things amazing things in Islam is that
Allah Jalla wa Ala have a look Dean protected this religion Alhamdulillah the Quran is protected from a hadith
the Quran is protected from any form of distortion.
And also the authentic sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is preserved
that there is a mechanism there is a system in place, which allows us Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen to know that this is something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and having this and bearing this in mind, allows us to have
tranquility happiness and contentment that Allah gelada protected this religion we ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us I mean
we have a caller on the line which will take no shot at Santa Monica
or no new from the days that I used to work for unity TV, our founder long very much impressed by your coming to the screen of what would you advise the people to do more towards bringing the non Muslims towards this Deen what can we do?
Good question brother. Mashallah.
Thank you so much for a very important question just like Allah hit.
So, the brother is asking
a fundamental and important question for us, as Muslims as a minority here in the UK, or wherever you may live where
Muslims may be a minority,
what can we do to
best invite or deliver the message of Al Islam to non Muslims?
So, on this topic it is important for us to remember that a lot of our data tells us in the Quran or LSB in Arabic a bill Hekmati will know where he wanted Hasina wotja Dill humility here are some
that call in the path or call to the path of your LORD with Hikmah with wisdom Yanni using what your own wisdom that you think you're going to make up no use the sources the revelation that was given to us use the Quran and the Sunnah
will Hekmati well more effort that has center that if after if after the date, they don't accept the the evidences or the texts and the sources that we give to them, that admonished them and find way
to admonish them be a bit more firmer in the way that you speak with them.
If they do not accept that then Bucha de l'homme bility. Here, ASAN then debate with them in the best way.
So there is a process in how we deliver the message of Al Islam to any person.
Now, first and foremost, people will judge you on your actions.
And so therefore, Islam pays great attention. This Allah subhanaw taala places a great weight upon our manners. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an individual who had the best of manners when Nicola Allah Who Lupin Azeem as is mentioned in Surah, Al Kalam, that Allah subhanaw taala said that the Messenger of Allah Azza wa salaam was upon the best of manner, the best of character. And so therefore, if people see Islam as a living example of Islam, because as we see as Muslims, who is the best example of living Islam, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and we are convinced, without any doubt, that Islam is the truth, because of what the Prophet sallallaahu Selim received
from Allah subhanaw taala, and then acted upon that. So he is a good word on Hassan. He is a beautiful example to view Islam. When you study the life of the Prophet alayhi wa sallam, you see the beautiful example of the Prophet RSO Salam, this is the template is if you like that we need to follow
that when calling people to Islam and teaching people about the Quran and the Sunnah we showed them if we're able to do that through actions, if we have direct interaction with them, how we speak with them, how we address with them, that we should have a prophetic model, a prophetic tradition and how we speak and how we deal with people. Okay? If we teach Islam even though you have may have something very beautiful, if you try to present that to somebody in a an awful, terrible way, why would they accept that from somebody who is
you know, behaving in such a manner? Okay, will you learn the method of Allah and then, of course, Allah Subhan Allah has the best of examples, but you know, there are certain products maybe if you forgive you to simplify the matter that you know, you may go into a shop, and that person is then selling of itself a beautiful product, but the seller has an awful character.
Their customer service is awful zero.
Are you going to buy from that person you're not even though what they have, may be very nice. Okay, maybe very, very nice. It may be a good quality, excellent quality, maybe of what they're selling it there's nothing better than that. However, the way that they dealt with you, is in an ordered, disgusting manner. If you don't go back, and you're not interested in what they have anymore, you go somewhere else.
We have Alhamdulillah. We, the person must have may say, Well, if Allah guides them to the truth, they're gonna guide them to the truth. It doesn't it's got nothing to do with me.
But the point is that we are a means that Allah subhanaw taala will make people possibly a means to discover the truth, to find the truth that Islam is the truth but yet still Allah subhanaw taala sent prophets and messengers to teach people. It wasn't just that the Quran will be revealed to us, and for them us to discover where we would find the truth without the
principle or the notion of having prophets and messengers. So there is a means there was a bridge for us to reach the truth at times.
And therefore, when we interact with non Muslims, our character, our behavior, is the thing that people will see first. And if you uphold the teachings, and the character, the behavior of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, then this is the first step in you giving Dawa. You know, it's not about you. Well, I don't have knowledge.
I don't I never studied in my life. Okay, there's no problem you never studied. You never educate yourself in Islamic sciences, but that doesn't excuse you from having good character, good manners.
Because everything Islam is to do with character and manners in how you deal with your load.
In a humble manner in a fearful manner in a hopeful manner and also how you deal with people. So the Muslim is always trying to refine their character and their behavior so this is how Muslims they will see Islam through our behavior. So I think brother with this question is a very important question and it's important we have correct answers for it. Okay, it's not just people left to their own devices to find out what they think is the best okay? So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us to guide us to that what is best
I mean there's like a lockout on product by the radical avec
these are some questions we're going to take from the WhatsApp now inshallah Tada
What did you ask?
There is a particular verse in Surah Yaseen that we should recite three times.
Yeah, there's no evidence to say that there is
anything specific that you need to recite a number of times in Surah, Yaseen or any other
well I was mentioning earlier actually, the hadith of Abu Dhabi 31 or the lion who that the prophet Elisha and taught us everything everything that will bring us closer to the paradise and distance us from the Hellfire was mentioned to us it was made clear to us there's nothing in Saudi to seem to say that you have to stay recite this surah three times or particular verse three times there's nothing all item you are rewarding Charlotte Allah for your recitation and every house every letter that you recite that you are, did you receive Asheville Hassan 10 rewards for each letter so
recite as much as you can a shout out
how to explain Islam to your parents who don't want to listen?
So this is kind of a general question.
I mean, if your parents are Muslim,
or if they're not, not Muslims, then it depends really on the approach.
If they're Muslims, and they're involved in certain things, which maybe are not from Islam,
then no doubt if anyone we see something wrong, then we need to make clear to the whoever they are that what this whatever you're doing is haram, or it's prohibited in Islam. And you go away, go about it in the very best way. So that you can deliver the message. And then after you've delivered the message, after this made clear to them, then you know, the responsibility is no longer on your shoulders, you've made it clear to them. So especially with your parents, you have to be very wise
if you're living with them, or you're and you're supposed to have a close relationship with them, because if a person isn't, well, I'm not really close to my parents, well, you need to be close to your parents, you need to
put yourself in a situation where you're very close to your parents, so that when you are close to them, you can help them you can serve them, you can advise them.
Be patient with them. They may be involved in something which maybe they don't understand. So maybe you go around go around explaining it from a different perspective, instead of straight saying, you know, this is haram don't do it, you know, come from a different approach. Saying that, you know, we should always do things which are pleasing to Allah, pleasing to our Lord. Everything that Allah subhanaw taala told us is always good is better for us. And anything that he told us is haram. And in principle, they agree with that, then after this has been all agreed, there's a premise, then you take them, they may reflect on the things that they're doing.
And you think, you know, maybe you know, what we're doing at the moment is not pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. So sometimes, when answering the question, you don't always have to go for it. Metaphorically go for the jugular. Okay, and you know, finish them off and say It's haram, what are you doing fear Allah subhanaw taala and that they become defensive, maybe go round in a different way to say that, you know, we try to please Allah, by doing what is you know, he commanded and staying away from what was forbidden, and things like this.
And I was put on his list
I'm a non Muslim, watching this show, and I am on my journey to drawing closer to God. How can Islam make me draw closer to God?
every single human being, is living their journey, living their life. And as a Muslim, we know that God in Allah is the Most Merciful and the Most just the most fear that no human being will ever be dealt with unjustly.
That if a person
lives this life, and they eventually go into the paradise that's through Allah's mercy
if a person goes through there
Life and is their destination is to be the hellfire, they will never be treated unfairly, it never doesn't mean that they were oppressed or they weren't treated fairly, every single human being will be treated fairly. Even though all of our journeys are very different.
There will be a point in time that if not every single person will come across Islam. And you are an individual who have come across Islam. And
because Islam is
a way of life, which
sees itself as a superior way of life. That's how Islam is, okay? Allah subhanaw taala. Allah the Most High gave us a religion, which we believe to be superior. This is how we should be living, and therefore it is better than other ways of life.
So if this truth or this claim, passes you by and you want to question it,
then you have full right to question it and compare it to the life or the lives that people are living in. If you believe in a creator, as it was said to me, once upon a time, that if you're looking for the truth, you're looking for the best way to live, then call upon God. Ask God to guide you to the truth. Do not ask any of the creation. Do not ask any of the prophets. Do not ask any idols or any things that are worshipped on Earth. Do not ask any of those. Just ask the Creator. Ask God Almighty to guide you and to show you the truth and do that with sincerity. If you're sincerely looking for the truth, you will find the truth. But the truth will become clear to you. And
like myself and many others, that why did you choose Islam? Well,
to be honest, it gets to a stage where
you don't actually choose Islam. Okay, yes, you may have, you may have other options. But because you've come across Islam, as you may have come across many other ways of life. Because Islam, you see is the absolute truth beyond any doubt.
Even though you could choose another way of life, you would be cheating yourself, you'd be deceiving yourself if you choose, or if you chose another way. So you're almost compelled because you have found the truth that you have to follow the truth.
And if you are fair and truth to yourself truthful to yourself, then really, it's not a choice. It's an absolute must, because you've come across the truth, and that is to follow Islam. So what I would say is that, programs like this,
produce over benefit with the general, you know, Muslims in asking matters about faith and some of the personal issues to do with purification to do with prayer. And you will see how you know, that Islam has an impact on all these fine details in one's life. That's what makes it a way of life. But there is also other ways to study Islam, and to know about Islam. And I would encourage you to find out.
Those who speak about, you know, to understand the purpose of life, there are many
well versed, you know, students of knowledge and scholars who talk about these subjects, about Islam from a more holistic kind of approach.
And maybe if you leave your details with the studio, they could pass them some information to you in sha Allah Tala. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to
guide us through that what is best, because the path to God is one path, there is one truth there aren't several truths.
And when you find that Islam is, is in its correct way, you will find a shortcut Allah there was this, that it is the truth. And that you will find yourself this is the only way to truly get close to your Creator to Allah to God Almighty. And that this is the way to live your life as was told to us by all the prophets and messengers who preceded us from Adam. All the way to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
next question through the WhatsApp don't forget button sister you can call on the telephone number which is appearing at the bottom of your screen.
Okay, how to keep ties with family members who are insistent on cutting ties with us.
Okay, so cutting ties in Islam with your family members is haram is not allowed. Okay.
There are many Hadith,
or statements of the Prophet salallahu Salam prohibiting Muslims to cut ties with their family members. Yes, they may have some bad traits, bad habits, but you're not allowed to cut ties with them. If you need to distance yourself because of harm that may come to you. And this is where at times it becomes a bit of a gray area because the person justifies themselves okay. I'm not talking to my mother because she's toxic. Or I'm not speaking to my my father because he's toxic. Okay. And they justify that that's their way of cutting ties they have not said
cutting ties by the way, they said, Oh, they're so toxic, I can't be around them. Okay, this is with their own parents by the way. And so therefore you find months if not years passed by and they've not had any contact with their parents. And they may be in because this has happened on a number of occasions unfortunately, the question I say, okay, you know, my parents are a bit toxic. And if I go around that home, you know, the
101 1001 different scenarios where they believe they're toxic, and then you get to the bottom of the situation is where, well you need to be patient with that. Okay, you need to be patient with that and you need to fix the situation. So
we need to be very, very careful about
number one, we cannot cut ties without mediate blood relatives. And secondly, finding that the you know, maybe there's a sibling who is insistent on being hurtful and harmful to your family or your kids and trying to do things to them. Which okay, maybe there was some space for you to distance yourself so that you can limit protect yourself so many haram but at the same time you have not and you will not cut ties. Okay? So each situation maybe kind of have its own way of dealing with but you know, cutting ties if they insisted in cutting ties, then you need to remind them quite simply cutting ties is haram. Okay, it's not allowed in Islam is prohibited in Islam to cut ties. Okay? If
you have an issue with somebody, then let's talk about it. You know, if we can discuss and communicate what the problems are to resolve those issues and let's work on that inshallah. Tada. May Allah Subhana Allah guide our hearts. I mean.
Next question, why are the locka or the number of units in prayer in this specific number?
We don't have any reason. You know, Fajr is to the harasser for for mother of three, and Aisha for just how it is at hamdulillah with regards to a bad for worship, sometimes, you know, the reason why we do things is explained to us and other times, no reason is mentioned. Okay, so
this is one of the things that is not it's not given to us as to why MongoDB is three why, why is it odd? And all the others are even haka. It's just how it is. Okay.
There is the winner of the day. It's I mean, there's some scholars they speak about some separation. The Witter is if you're Muslim is the winner of the day, even though it's often mockery, but and the wizard you praise the Wizard of the night. Yeah, there's some scholars, they mentioned these things to kind of
match up things, but it's not a an absolute kind of answer. These are just things that some of the scholars that they mentioned. But even no photo, it is only to the recitation is, is elongated. This is the practice of the Prophet Elijah and but as for that exact reason,
there is no exact reason it it is what it is that Hamdulillah. And we know that
we would be permitted to shorten those. So those prayers,
so three of the prayers are shortened. So lower asset and Russia or traders to rocker, which demonstrates and shows to us that there is a lightening of the responsibility as travelers because I was traveling, you know, situations can be a bit different, more difficult. You don't have all the amenities that you would have when you're at home. So the fact that the prayers when you're a resident that this number, when you're a traveler, that they are lightened, these are all benefits that we can take from that. But as for our specific cancer,
Allah subhanaw taala knows best.
What is the difference between the and the thicket?
We'll start answering this because we will come to we're coming to the end of this particular first part of the show we'll maybe touch on again
on the second half of the show, but adura and dedicated essentially is both both if you'd like liquor is a general term. Because it means remembering Allah subhanaw taala. And a dua is a more specific type you can say just so the understanding is it really clear out that the drought is a specific request, possibly you can say a specific type of the ticket. Because Quran is is part of the ticket as part of remembrance and in fact it is the best of ticket. It's the best of remembrance. That is the Quran so recitation of the Quran is a form of vicar.
A dua is a specific type of decode of the word that the app to the servant is requesting and asking something from Allah subhanaw taala so this is if you'd like a genuine difference between the two. So we've come to the end of this particular part of the show. We'll have a short break and try to please join us after the break barnacle off he can set Armonico mod amatola He will Yeah, are you have
LTE Oh Lord, our LTE was our only m remian.
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
All right, well what I care to put in sisters and viewers home Welcome back to the second part of Islamic where we are continuing to take your questions and Charlotte Allah don't forget, you have the option of calling us here in the studio with the telephone number that is appearing at the bottom of the screen. Also, you can put your questions on the WhatsApp. And those questions will come shortly to the device that I have here in front of me and hum that we've had a few questions via WhatsApp. And so please feel free to contact us. So we can try our best to answer your questions. Inshallah, there was one really good question via telephone cordial earlier about how we
can best present Islam to non Muslims. So the question is Subhanallah, maybe he has it to himself, but Michel, he has a great benefit and a great reward in asking such a question on a public platform, because he has stimulated a conversation and stimulated an answer which inshallah Allah will benefit, I hope, maybe hundreds of people, if not 1000s of people. So you asking questions can be a source of good reward for yourself. Not only you are benefiting from the answer for yourself and hamdulillah but many other people may benefit from the answer that is given based upon your question.
Imagine now Subhan Allah, the amount of times that we have in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with our companion, he comes to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and asks questions, you know, very
good example of this is that a Bedouin man he walks into the masjid. And he's asking, where is Mohammed? Where's Muhammad? And they point out this is, this is the messenger of Allah Elisa to Saddam so sits in front of him and asks him, this Bedouin man he asks the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what has a lot of like, obliged upon me every day and every night. And there's a series of questions where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam makes clear to this individual is a Muslim and hamdulillah companion, that this is what you have to offer with regards to your prayers and your fasting and your Zakah and Hajj, if you're able to do that. And then he walks out, he says, I'm not
gonna do any more, anything less. That's it. So the Prophet edition said that this individual would be successful successful. Now we read this hadith Subhan Allah is read around the world hundreds of 1000s of times. And there is
various benefits that we can take from the Hadith. But Subhanallah one of the great benefits that we take from the hadith is that this series of questions that were placed to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, if a person fulfills their obligations and doesn't do anything on top of that, that they will be a successful person. Okay, so sometimes you may think well, you know, should I shouldn't I and I asked that question, but the question and then not only you will benefit from the answer, but if an hour later I left there is an answer for that, but many other people that they will benefit from the answer, inshallah Tada because of the good question that you play. So, if you have something that
you're not sure of, you know, put it to us in Charlotte, Allah will try to share the benefit inshallah Tada BarakAllahu li comm
Okay, so we have another question from the WhatsApp here says, I have a problem with controlling anger. What advice can you give? So,
somebody who came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
asked for advice. A companion, he said, O Messenger of Allah advised me. And then the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, let's talk about
Don't get angry, don't be angry. And he asked this slide on two or three occasions and on each occasion, the Prophet sallallahu replied with the same answer. Let's talk about Don't get angry. Now.
This answer, no doubt was specific and tailored for this particular companion.
And at times, we do become angry, we are emotional people.
And it is important for us to source what causes us to become angry, and then we can start working on that. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to control our emotions, I mean, and protect us from anger, which can get us into many, many problems. I mean, we have a caller on the line Chantal which will take Santa Monica. Okay. Yes. One question please.
Do we know the date of birth of the Prophet peace be upon him? Right. Okay, shall America Good question.
Okay, so do we know the
specific exact date that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was was born?
So there are two
What if you'd like three, there are three pieces of information that we can be executive.
Number one is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam will lead the animal field, that he was born in the Year of the elephant. Now, once upon a time, in times of the Arabs that they used to name the years after a particular event. So if because each year, there are many things that happened
So they didn't say, Oh, this was year one, this was year two, they didn't number them. They named the years after a great or grand event
or specific event that happened in that year. So the Prophet alayhi salam, according to the time was born in the Year of the elephant, and that is, when Abraha came from the south, on his
his intention to destroy the Kaaba. But as we know, in sort of tilled field, there's a chapter in the Quran that Allah subhanaw taala
destroyed them for their intention to destroy the Kaaba. So we know that the Prophet Hassan was born in the Amel field, the elephant number two is that the Prophet Solomon's son was born in the month of RBL. Over the month we are in now.
We also know that the prophets Allah son was born on a Monday is all authentically narrated. Okay, so these are three pieces of information that we know when the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there's one, if you'd like added piece of information that we that I didn't mention. So you've got you've mentioned the year, you've mentioned the month, you've mentioned the day in the week, okay? What day in the month, we want to know what day in the month, the prophets Allah Selim was born in upon this issue, there is a difference of opinion. Okay. There is a difference of opinion. Was he born on the 12th?
Was he born on the 10th of the eighth the sevens, even the second? So there are various views by the scholars as to when the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the exact date.
bearing this in mind, we know the year we know the month, even the day in the week, as for the exact day, we cannot be exactly sure. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Okay. So, is this an issue for us? Is it a problem? If somebody says it was the troll for nobody says no, no, no, that was the eighth. And this is no, no, no, no, he was the 10th or even the 11th? You know, is this an issue for us?
No, it shouldn't be an issue. The fact that we don't know the exact day is no problem for us.
Because knowing when the person is exactly back to the day Exactly. One, is there any other Is there any consequence? Is there anything that we can take for knowing the exact day to impact our deen our daily lives? No, there isn't really, there's nothing that you find in the Quran. So not to say that because we know the day then you're supposed to do this. No, there's nothing we so we don't miss out on anything. There's nothing we can say that is deficient. The fact that we don't know the exact date in absolute terms, but you're no doubt it was in the first half of what we are owed. And there are some, maybe some stronger views over the others that okay, that being the case.
What is important for us as Muslims is that everything else that is that is important that needs to be important for us to know is known Alhamdulillah and so things like
you know, genealogy and his children and his family and his tradition, his sunnah is already all been preserved when he led him. And that is something that directly impacts us, because there are vast amounts of his tradition and his sunnah, which tells us and informs us how we should live our lives. Okay. The fact he was if he was born on the tour, Felisa, so no more another day, like it doesn't change doesn't affect me as a Muslim. If I knew I didn't know yesterday now, no, I know tomorrow doesn't impact me doesn't impact me. What does impact me is that I know that the Prophet salallahu Salam is an individual that I'm as a Muslim
trying to emulate trying to follow in his footsteps Salado. So let me in the way that he worship Allah subhanaw taala in the way that he
dealt with people, all aspects of his life, at least, that's what impacts me. And that's what's important to me. Okay. So kind of a long way going here and answering the question, but I think these are important elements to answer concerning the the specific date because maybe the person says, Well, you don't know the specific date. Yeah, okay. So doesn't impact anything. In fact, if you knew you didn't know it, what's important is that what is preserved is that what we need to know will ll hunt and it is exactly in line if you like with the Hadith that I mentioned at the beginning of the show, the hadith of Abu Musa or Luffy theory or the line that the Prophet sallallahu sallam
said that nothing remains that will bring you closer to the paradise and to keep you away from the fire exit that was made made known to you made clear to you.
Okay, this issue is not it's not clear to us all of it, but it doesn't impact it's not gonna bring us closer to gender and keep us from the fire any further. Okay. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best.
Some questions here from the WhatsApp charter data.
What is the best deal to make for our parents?
I'm going to answer this question in two ways.
There is the actual practice of making dua. And there is what to be said. So the best type of there for one's parents is that what is done frequently and often, okay? The best draft for one's parents, is that what you are going to say, and you do it frequently, and you do it often.
So it's not about doing it, you know, once a year. Now, what's more beloved, and better, inshallah Tada is that you do it frequently. Even if a person may differ in what they're going to say, between two different people, they're different, you know what they say, but they're both consistent in their era, that's the best thing that you can do number one in practice, as for the specific good, or what's the best.
So Allah subhanaw taala tells us
in a couple of verses in Surah, to law, and in also in in Surah, Surah, in the things that we can say, for what we can say concerning our parents, one of them is making mystical hard
making a state of art, asking Allah subhanaw taala to forgive one's parents, and asking Allah subhanaw taala to have mercy, have mercy upon upon them.
So, just as they were merciful to us, when we were young, and imagine the love the attention that one's parents have for their own children, that even the slightest noise,
slightest noise that a child will make, or certain sound of discomfort, you will find that number one, the mother is there, then the father to attend to whatever need that they have. Okay, so just as they showed us mercy, we ask Allah subhanaw taala, to show them mercy, to have mercy upon them. Okay, so the best things that you can ask for sanitary is that Allah subhanaw has mercy upon them, and that Allah subhanaw taala forgives them, we will have mistakes, nobody's perfect. So these things were just specifically mentioned in the Quran can be from the best things that can be said, for one's parents.
And as I mentioned, the best in practice, is that you do that frequently. And you do that consistently, even in your in your sujood in your frustration, but you ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive them and have mercy upon them.
And also add that you ask Allah subhanaw taala to make you
a son or a daughter, that is there ready to serve one's parents, okay, to protect you from a coop from disobedience. They ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from being
a son or a daughter, that does not fulfill the rights of one's parents. So this is also very important channel.
Another question is, is online marketing permissible?
So marketing, if you're like,
my speciality in terms of marketing, a person wants to advertise products,
be part of something which is a enables them to get a you know, a foothold in the market to make sure their product has a better chance of being sold. Yeah, there's no problem in that. And if you happen to do the online, there's not a problem with that either. Now, how a person goes about doing things like that, ie, that Am I allowed to use a means which is Islamically questionable to market, my product. So I'm going to use individuals and people who are not addressed. We're not just appropriately okay from an Islamic perspective.
We as Muslims would not dress in this manner, but I have certain garments, okay, I've certain clothing that I want to sell. I want a person to you know, dress like this and you know, market online, is that allowed? Of course not allowed. That will clearly not be allowed for people to market your product online dressed inappropriately from an Islamic perspective. Okay. But you said Islamic you know, you said online marketing is halal? Yes, it is but as long as the means and the way that you're doing it is halal. Okay. So, the question was very broad and there are when answering it, yes, it is allowed, but there are some conditions concerning that the means that you
use is halal you know, using haram means to sell your product while Oh ALLAH.
Next question is how can I get over a gambling addiction now?
Gambling and he said it was haram. Yes. Everyone's clear on that. But it is a type of haram which a person is engaged in involved in that it can be one of the destroyers in life, like alcohol. It is one of the things that a person can become addicted
To end doesn't see a way out. Or especially with alcohol, although you've lost out by gambling, alcohol is one of the things that a person used goes into alcohol because they want to forget their problems, they believe this is a solution for them. Gambling, on the other hand, is a type of slippery slope where you've lost your money, but then you're given some distant hope that you can get out of that. So then you spend more, and then you're in a deeper hole. And then to get out of that hole, you think the only way of getting out of it, is to go back into the same problem in the hope that you get that one in a million chance or one in a billion chance to. And, you know, more
often than not, as the odds would show that you're not going to get out of that. And if you need to get get out of it, you've done it in a way which is haram.
What I would say is to get help on this issue. And not to do things like this and to feel you're alone. Okay, it's very important to have a support network around you. Che upon will want you to be alone. And that you can sort this out that Allah Subhana Allah knows your situation, He knows your predicament best. And Allah knows that you're trying to illustrate I will give you you know, million wanted, you know, advices how to stay in the situation that you are in, you're only doing this for your family, you're only doing this for to help yourself and so on and so forth. Okay, so what I would say is that with regards to gambling, with regards to alcoholism, all of these addictions,
that you get professional help, that there are bodies there to help you have a plan to get out of it. Okay, and to show you a plan and to show you a way, which you never thought because you thought the way that you came in is the only way that you know you can get out of it. There are many, many many other ways of you resolving this issue. And I'd have the lead in many organizations which are professionals in helping you don't be shy, don't be embarrassed about these things that stop you getting a benefit Okay, so get professional help inshallah. Tada and I'm sure that there are also many people who can advise you have a support network around you and your family. And may Allah
