Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. To my dear brothers, sisters and viewers at home Welcome to a new episode of Islamic where Alhamdulillah you are given the opportunity to put your questions to us and we will try our very best to answer those questions in accordance to the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:00:46--> 00:00:58

And there are a couple of ways that you can contact us Inshallah, to Allah. The first one is the traditional way of calling us here in the studio. We'll be here for the next 55 minutes or so.

00:01:00--> 00:01:25

The telephone numbers appearing at the bottom of your screen, you can call directly into the studio and we'll take your question Bethany later. The second way of contacting us is via the WhatsApp number is that is also appearing is looks like a mobile number. You save that to your device. And then you open the application WhatsApp, post us or put your question to us via that in a written form. And we'll all also answer those questions in shallow Tyler.

00:01:26--> 00:01:34

So you have a couple of ways to contact us you have mashallah plenty time as well. And especially in a time where

00:01:35--> 00:01:52

there are many questions to be asked. And even if it is a small issue, you know, do not belittle the question that you have, it might have been something which has been on your mind for a little while and you haven't really got around to asking it you know, shows like this, which I'm sure a lot on, twice a day around, as you know, a lot of time now and also

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

in the evening, gives you the opportunity to put your question to us. So while when we come, you're welcome to call us Inshallah, to Allah

00:02:03--> 00:02:18

is a couple of days now since the hour went back. And this is the start of a new quote unquote, if you'd like a new season for us as Muslims in that the day, the days appear to be much, much shorter.

00:02:21--> 00:02:45

There are many a number of narrations that from the Prophet RSM, as well as many of the companions that that they would take advantage of the winter months, and the winter months. Although you could technically say if we're still in autumn and whatnot, but still we're getting into the colder months now. And with that here in the southern, or the northern hemisphere, the days are much shorter, or praying a lot in Mongolia, but what,

00:02:46--> 00:03:07

for 40 in the evening or so okay. And in a month or so you'll find that the day itself Subhanallah is what eight hours. And in a couple of months, the day will be very, very short. So there's a couple of things in Chinatown and just to remind ourselves about how we can take advantage of this particular time of year. There are maybe some of us who have days remaining

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

or outstanding that we need to make up for Ramadan,

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

whether it was due to pregnancy due to

00:03:16--> 00:03:33

breastfeeding your child, or if you were sick. These are the time Well, this is the time of year that you have a great opportunity to make up the time in Charlottetown and make up those fasts. And if you look at it, where you are starting your fasting, you know 730 In the morning, possibly seven o'clock in the morning,

00:03:34--> 00:03:51

and then you break your fast before four o'clock in the afternoon, when you reach like December or January time although there's a little bit of weight. Nonetheless, the day for even from now is relatively short. So it's an opportunity for you to make those days up. Mashallah, you can do Monday and Thursday.

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

Or you can also

00:03:55--> 00:04:30

do fast more than that, if you wish. If you wanted to fast Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as you like, then that's not a problem and Sharla Taylor. So this is the first thing I wanted to encourage us to engage in Charlottesville is to increase our forests in the winter months where the days are, are very short. And on the other side in that yes, the days are very short. You may find also that the nights are very long, 24 hours so if we've got eight days or nine days worth of daylight, the remaining part will be nighttime. So we pre selected a shirt fairly early. So let's say help us five in the evening.

00:04:31--> 00:04:39

It's a lot of Asia. And if you wanted to pray it early then you have mashallah the whole night to pray pm will lead

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

and if you're a person that doesn't merely pre pm will lead or 200 the night prayer very often. Then there is nothing stopping you Charlotte adiPRENE pm will lead because I think what most people think is that a pm will lead is that is offered at two or three or four in the morning. That yes, this may be the latter part of the night.

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

In the winter months, but the night prayer is split into three

00:05:06--> 00:05:40

after and you work that out, obviously you pray after Salah to Asia, but the night is split into three. So you work out the hours, which is between Maghrib and federal, okay? It could be Subhanallah maybe 13 or even 14 hours between McRib all the way to fudge it in a month or so or six weeks time, the last third of the night is the best time for you to offer 200 But it is also permitted for you to pray night prayer earlier than that. So if after salata, raesha that whatever time you prayed that,

00:05:41--> 00:05:48

so you prayed salatu Lucia, you prayed in the masjid at seven or 730, in the evening with the gym out or eight o'clock, whatever time that you're marries.

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

Then after that, maybe by an hour, you want to stop praying the night prayer at nine o'clock in the evening, or even eight o'clock in the evening, after you've printed him out. Is this the micro? Yes, it is absolutely part of the library.

00:06:00--> 00:06:05

This is an opportunity for you to make that part of your your programming Charlottetown. And as you know, the great reward of

00:06:07--> 00:06:22

of praying tahajjud the night prayer, it doesn't have to be in the latter part of the prayer of the latter part of the night. It is not a condition either for you to have to have slept before you offer the night prayer, although some of the relief that they mentioned it is of a greater

00:06:23--> 00:06:36

standing or greater reward that if a person slept, and then was to wake themselves up from their sleep, to establish the night prayer that maybe some due to that effort, there may be some greater reward, but doesn't stop you offering of the night prayer

00:06:38--> 00:07:18

in the early part of the night, so no doubt we can say that in the months from now on, you know, it's November, December, January, and even February to some extent that the days are very, very short. And that the Muslim takes advantage of that in that they fast as many days as they can this, these months will pass very, very quickly. You may have an intention. Yeah, mashallah, I've got some days to make up before Ramadan, which Subhanallah before you know, it will be coming. We'll be on our doorsteps next March, April SubhanAllah. You know, time is coming around very, very quickly, Allahu Akbar. And once that time comes around, you think, Oh, I didn't, I didn't take advantage on

00:07:18--> 00:07:41

how many days I could have asked it, I could have fasted 20 3040 days. In those months that passed, you know, so it's an amazing opportunity for us brothers and sisters, reminding ourselves of the great reward of fasting. There are many books, I'm sure, and lectures about the father or the virtues of fasting, and the virtues of the night prayer, maybe you need a reminder, this of course, just an introduction to what we're talking about at the moment

00:07:42--> 00:08:21

is not we're barely scratching the surface to be honest with you about the virtues of the fasting and and the night prayer, but just to make it clear to us that the opportunity is there for us, but isn't it later and not to allow that to pass us by? So have an intention from now on I shall Natalia that if you know setting a schedule for yourself at least Monday and Thursday, and if you can add to that the three white days 1314 15 of each Islamic month, then mashallah, this will be a great, a great practice for you to start. And then to continue inshallah to Allah. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us Tofik to give a success, and may Allah subhanaw taala accept all of our efforts

00:08:21--> 00:08:22


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

and allow us to become true servants, sincere and sincere servants to Allah towns that are long I mean, okay, so with that Charles Taylor will take some of your questions concerning

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

that have come through the WhatsApp.

00:08:36--> 00:08:42

So regarding celebrations in Islam, and celebrations

00:08:43--> 00:09:22

in general, what is the stance for the Muslim concerning these different types of celebrations? Well, we should remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When he entered into law in Medina, he saw people and he asked about what the people were doing. And there were certain celebrations that will people were engaged in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah subhanaw taala legislated for us to leads to reads and that is Riedel flipper, and aidid Aha, the one is is at the end of Ramadan, the first official word and the read aloud Ha, which is during the days of Hajj. So, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam replaced whatever celebrations that people had

00:09:23--> 00:09:27

with these two particular celebrations. And it is coordinate read

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

in and if you think what is the word IID mean? Well, you may translate it as celebration as party Yeah, okay. I mean, in general terms is something that you you want to celebrate, but it comes from something which from the Arabic language is to reoccur, okay, and to repeat itself, from the word that either your own do which means to repeat and to return. So, that celebration which is done regularly and is is you know, you repeat it, and can be can can be called and eat and so that you find that around the world that there are you know,

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

different celebrations and different things that are repeated a particular times of the year.

00:10:04--> 00:10:09

And so therefore, as a Muslim, you have to recognize and you have to know that

00:10:10--> 00:10:24

as a Muslim, we have our Islamic eight, we have our Islamic celebration, our Islamic, if you like signposts throughout the year. And with these aides, some of them, because if you look into the matter a little more,

00:10:27--> 00:10:39

a little deeper, many of them, if not, the vast majority, who saved the vast majority are to do with the bad or to do with worship, okay, has some link to some form of worship.

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

Others may not.

00:10:42--> 00:11:05

If you want to go into the issue as to all those reads, which are linked to worship, which are an Islamic, then surely, it's pretty clear that, you know, the Muslims shouldn't really engage in that. And that's quite right to say so that the Muslim would not engage in form of celebration or any form of elite that has teachings or has links to origins to

00:11:06--> 00:11:39

disbelieve in Allah as a result of rejecting Allah subhanaw taala or things which go against the core teachings of Islam, that these celebrations for sure, it's quite clear that as a Muslim you would not engage in Okay. As for those others, which a person may want to have a position while they're not worship based, so therefore, we have to look at it a little bit different. But the fact is that it is a repetition. It is not something that Islam minister, it is repeated each year at the same time.

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

Is it something that Islam legislated for us? Is it something we find in the Quran or the teachings of the Prophet Elisa to Salah? Is it something we find

00:11:49--> 00:12:09

with within the practice of the companions, and the blessed generations that came early? Birthdays, for example? Well, yeah, it may not could be argued, doesn't have any worship, although one could look at in a different way, may not have any, you know, worship origin and so on and so forth. But it is something which is reoccurred, and so on and so forth.

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

Now, even though if one was to establish that, yeah, this doesn't have any origin within worship. But then you have to look at the impact.

00:12:20--> 00:12:54

You have to look at the impact of saying something which is permitted for people and how it is the impact to the Muslim. If a person wants to go beyond and say, yeah, it's not haram, because they had doesn't have any links to a burden. So And okay, how does that impact a Muslim? And how does that impact a community, one could then go down another path in explaining the Mikasa Shut up the objectives of the Sharia, that when Allah subhanaw, taala, legislate something for us, or those matters, which are Moscato Nan, which is another issue, which

00:12:55--> 00:13:27

the Sharia does not comment on specifically, then they say, okay, the origin of it is permission is allowed to us. That may be the case, but then you look at the impact of something, and how does that impact the identity and the practice of a Muslim and if it is something which is negative, then you can say, okay, it may be my school tonight, it may be that the city hasn't specifically said that you can or you cannot do this, but then how it impacts Muslims and how it impacts a person's behavior is not a positive one, then you can say at the very least, it's something that you should stay away from, okay. Now,

00:13:29--> 00:13:36

not too long ago. And I remember, if I can remind your ancestors, if you have any questions, this isn't me just lecturing you for an hour,

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

you have the opportunity to put your question to us via WhatsApp, the numbers appearing on your screen. You can also call us here in the studio. And we'll do our best to answer the question in Charlotte. Tyler.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

So with the celebrations,

00:13:51--> 00:14:01

not too long ago, there were certain celebrations which, you know, to be honest, it wasn't even a question that was even, like, put to the muscle

00:14:03--> 00:14:13

that can we engage in such practices? Because it was like almost low or was known that a Muslim doesn't do that? How could a Muslim participate in such a celebration?

00:14:14--> 00:14:32

How times you know, they change people's habits, people's understandings, people's influences over a period of time, ignorance can come become more widespread, and how that impacts the mind of a Muslim. To the extent where the Muslim is asking, can I engage and participate in Halloween?

00:14:34--> 00:14:47

Maybe I don't know how many years you want to go back. But such a question was almost unheard of that can a Muslim participate in Halloween, especially in the UK. I cannot speak of what it's like in different

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

places around the world where Muslims have different understandings and so on.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

But here in the UK really this was a question was never asked. Because it's all it's known, really? A Muslim Can I party?

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

dissipate in Halloween? Well, it seems that no people are now asking one of the questions Am I allowed to celebrate

00:15:08--> 00:15:32

or participate in in Halloween? Now, if you look at how Halloween and everything that around is, is, is marketed, and how it's put to too many, it is something which may be said you can say it's harmless. Or there's, there's some fun in it. It doesn't cause any harm to anybody. It's

00:15:34--> 00:15:49

harmless. Essentially, this is how they how it is portrayed. It's about sweets, it's about dressing up. It's about making people laugh. And even if there is not the intention to just scare people, because people how they dress, people know it's a joke, okay.

00:15:50--> 00:16:11

Just this morning, I was looking Oh, I didn't see the whole interview, there was an interview between us in the United States of America, there was an interview between it was on a news station, a news program between the presenter, of course, the journalist and a person who used to be a devil worship of some satanic movement.

00:16:12--> 00:16:33

And he had then followed us believes Christianity, he was a Christian. And they were questioning him about Halloween, and the innocence, quote, unquote, the innocence of, of Halloween, and its harmless nature, and so on and so forth. So if only you knew that how it is presented on the large scale and how it's projected and marketed to people that it's just a time of

00:16:35--> 00:17:00

another time in the year where people buy and sell and to make money and so on and so forth. But he says this has deep roots, in, at least in his belief, and says it has this deep rooted in the worship of shaitan, and practices that follow devil worship, and things like that. And he said, this goes against how he says, you know, his teachings of being a Christian. And for us as Muslims, the same principle would remain,

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

that on the apparent it may seem some of the innocent and so on and so forth.

00:17:06--> 00:17:12

But it has deep roots in Cofer in disbelief in disbelief.

00:17:13--> 00:17:54

And this is why as Muslim Subhanallah it's very important for us to just to educate ourselves about simple matters. Because educating, having beneficial knowledge about certain matters, doesn't require you need to go to a scholar and study for 20 years to know about issues like this, about the origin origins of, of certain celebrations, where they come from, or what they stand for, even though how it's protected to you. Well, in the modern day, it doesn't mean that anymore. Well, maybe a portion of people doesn't mean that but there are still people who seriously take you know, certain dates like 30 30/31 of October, as it is today, I believe yes, 31st of October, that this is

00:17:54--> 00:18:08

a day of you know devil worship for them, and that they have certain practices and certain sacrifices that they will do and the distribution of sweets, where they do certain practices over their sweets and they distribute the sweets in this manner.

00:18:09--> 00:18:36

So we ask Allah generator first and foremost, on Euro Zuko and Euro zone Amon Natha. But us pound to Allah grants us beneficial knowledge. And this beneficent is beneficial knowledge, in turn, allows us to understand those things, which unintentionally unknowingly will harm us. Okay, and take us away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and indulge in things which are contrary to Islamic teachings.

00:18:37--> 00:19:19

If you like these things are like from my bed, it would mean these are from the introductory things of our religion of our deen to, you know, the state of shape on the status of the devil in Islam is very clear that we are to take him as an enemy, that he tries to harm us in every single way possible, as explained in the Quran. And for those who are unaware those things will just follow this path and engage in things which are completely contrary to Islamic teachings. So we ask Allah Allah to, you know, give us beneficial knowledge that don't fall into such things and don't fall into the trick of the so called innocence and the harmless nature of certain celebrations and

00:19:19--> 00:19:22

certain practices that you as a Muslim uphold an identity

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

and that identity is to live and manifest what it means to say La ilaha illallah that there is none worthy of worship except a lot of adequate Allah. Muhammad Rasul Allah and that Muhammad Allah says salam is the Messenger of Allah, Allah Sodom, that you accept all the guidance that you find no Quran and accept all the guidance that was found is found in the authentic sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These are very important things for us brothers and sisters, to hold on to, for us to educate ourselves and to educate our Shabaab. educate our youth. Don't assume because you know that your children will

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

No, sit them down and explain these things to them.

00:20:04--> 00:20:18

And I was also just thinking, and this is a very important question by the sisters that was placed upon Allah concerning celebrations, and I've gone on quite a long concerning this. But it is very important because, you know, it touches on so many important issues for us as a Muslim.

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

There was another thing I was thinking about.

00:20:22--> 00:20:29

But 20 years ago, 25 years ago, so when one used to go to perform hajj

00:20:31--> 00:20:39

you know, I won't mention the country. And so or even countries that there were certain countries that will come for Hajj, certain countries that you'd find

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

the people come from Hajj from this particular country,

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

the age range of the Hajaj or those making Hajj from that particular particular country, all of them pretty much were old people.

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

You see any Shabaab, no youth

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

amongst that particular part of the world.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

And then I was thinking about

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

how Islam was in that part of the world.

00:21:09--> 00:21:59

And what has led to and what has impacted the people, to the extent where it's only the elderly, who are making hutch, Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, even I see now in the past few years that that situation has changed vastly. And you see much of the elderly, and you see many of the youngsters as well, making Hutch. But there was a time 2025 years ago that only the elderly were making Hajj from that particular country, and I was thinking, what has happened to that generation, but even generations, where the youth are not interested or not interested enough, not attached to Islam to Allah Israel enough that you find that there are use making hutch, what happened.

00:22:00--> 00:22:09

And without, as I mentioned, without going into mentioning the particular country or countries, that you find that there was, if you like,

00:22:12--> 00:22:36

a movement to dissolve, or to dilute one's understanding of Islam. So you may have lost a generation, a generation of people. This is very, very important for us as Muslims, brothers sisters, that we look forward, we don't just look for the situation that we are in now. But we look forward. And what I mean by and how we look forward is impacting the next generation.

00:22:38--> 00:23:14

And that is, you know, our children who are teenagers who are in the maybe younger than that, you know, they've whatever age that they could be from, you know, from from when they're born up to the age of when they're teenagers, and when they're teenagers. And when they reach the age of 20. I guess, when they're into their teens, or when they're in their 20s, most of their thoughts and their ideas have been formed as to the type of people or the type of person that they want to be. So this is why it's very important for us at a very, very young age. We teach them Islamic teachings, we teach them what Allah subhanaw taala has given to us and Purana similarly from the teachings of the

00:23:14--> 00:23:48

Prophet alayhi salatu salam, so that you will not if you're like, surprised, or that you are not taken aback that when they reach their teens, they say, Well, you know what, autistic would do this anymore, it can happen. It can happen, and you've done as much as you can for your children. And when they start thinking for themselves, you know, guidance is for most pantalla you've done everything that you can, and maybe they take their own path, you know that the Son of new new had a solemn and ultimate MBA from the greatest of profits wasn't enough that his son would be saved, that his son was committed Harlequin, he was from those who were destroyed, didn't follow his father

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

Subhanallah all him

00:23:50--> 00:24:05

so anemone examples to this. So as Muslim, we look forward, and we look to educate our children in a positive way, a respectful way, in how Islam teaches us. We don't want a time where,

00:24:06--> 00:24:28

let's say for example, we've all passed away and our children are all grown up, and that they we didn't pass on Islam, as we should have taught our children Islam as they should have been taught is their right. The only the kobada Sin, only those who are old people making hudge and that the youth, you lost generation, you lost a whole generation of youngsters. And that that

00:24:29--> 00:24:36

that generation of people who've lost or losing their Islam, how will that be for the generation that who's there to teach them?

00:24:37--> 00:24:44

And then who's there to teach them? You know, you know, the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is great, but it is also we

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

there's a requirement for us from us to do what is necessary. We can't just say, Oh, no, Allah pantile is mercy will save everybody and that will be fine and I don't have to do anything. This is not how it works. This isn't this is not the attitude that we should have.

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

Have, but rather we, yes, what it was the ad coalition as a logical anatella. So these mercy encompasses everything. But there was also an onus upon us. There was a responsibility upon us to teach the next generation

00:25:15--> 00:25:30

to influence them in a way which pushes them towards loving Allah subhanaw taala loving Islam and loving the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the, again, is another question about the roles of massage and

00:25:32--> 00:25:58

the role and the responsibility of massage, it is very important, or having youth centres and youth work where you can engage the youth. Okay, there was a comment, you know, not a few years ago, not that long ago, were in massage that they were setting up youth, youth clubs, on the weekends, Friday nights, or Friday evenings and Saturday evening and Sunday evenings, maybe one night in the week. And they would have within,

00:25:59--> 00:26:11

within the youth activities that they would bring like game devices or game consoles. And people would be saying, well, you printed these games for the Shabaab? Why are you bringing these games, they're wasting their time.

00:26:12--> 00:26:37

And then because they didn't have foresight. It's not that we are drawing, if you're like, wasting the youth shabads time and just playing games, you think this is we want them to become experts in playing these football games or whatever games that they're playing, we want them to be the computer, computer game role models for people? No, you have to understand that the youth, the youth,

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

this is what they're doing. This is what they're engaged in. And so at the same time, instead of them

00:26:45--> 00:27:02

engaging in just games at home, or engaging at games in another people's homes, where and then after that, who knows what they're going to do bring them to a place where there's lots of Muslims, they can play their games for a little while. And then as a reminder, they can press a lot of drama with the people. And then as a reminder, after Salah

00:27:04--> 00:27:29

so they have they're going to play their games, okay, fine, no problem. But then they have with that they came to the masjid and they had a reminder, okay, they ever had attachment to the house of Allah subhanaw taala. Whereas if you just leave them to their own devices and don't have the services for the for the youth, then you will lose the youth, you will lose the youth. And on a daily basis, you were hearing young Shabaab were at one up once upon a time where they were, you know,

00:27:30--> 00:28:09

what I'm not used to, like 20 men in their 20s, holding, you know, weapons, and they were having gang fights and so on and so on using these weapons against people and, you know, murdering people for the smallest of things. People are not in their 20s Now they're not in their late teens, people now, young kids in their early teens are carrying these weapons around, okay, young Muslims, gangs and so on and so forth. Part of gangs, you know, the age of 1112 and 13 going out participating in such you know, such vise within the community. Not only that, even younger than that, that, you know, these young in primary school, taking whatever they're taking to school to protect themselves

00:28:09--> 00:28:32

that they want to be certain people. How important is Wiesbaden sisters to be able to take care of our next generation, we need to be forward looking. We need to be looking about not just for ourselves, yeah, you're literally in mono goo and for Sakuma Honeycomb, Nora? Oh, you believe Save yourselves and your family from hellfire? How would you do that? You need to work with your family, you need to have a relationship with them. You need to know what's happening and do things

00:28:33--> 00:29:07

things which will benefit them. And you have to also accept the if you like the current state the status quo as it is what they're engaged in what they're doing. If they have phones, they have devices, you can't look them up. Of course, you can't do that they have their freedoms. So if they have a device, we have an understanding how they're going to use their device, their phones, if they have other things they're engaged in, then you need to have an understanding how to interact with what is the Islamic teachings? What is the Islamic Guidance concerning that Islam is not there to restrict you to suffocate you. Islam is theirs to liberate you, for you to have a free understanding

00:29:07--> 00:29:20

in how to interact with everything that is around you. And to know that they were hood, that there are boundaries concerning all of these things similar to their living like, as you like, as you please, you know, an average of shower or servant or slave to your own desires.

00:29:22--> 00:29:54

Allah subhanaw taala gave you the freedom for you to know what is right and wrong, to make the choice what is right, and to reject what is wrong. Because as parents, a day will come when you're not there for your children. And whatever age that child may be, they could be in their, you know, in their 20s 30s 40s they still have children. A time will come when you're not there for them. While you're there, you can direct them to what is good, and what is bad, but a time when you're not there to tell them what is right and wrong. You're relying on the laws of God to guide them and save them occupied the systems that come to the end of this first part. Please join us after the break

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

medical off ceremony. Yeah, are you ready?

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


00:30:02--> 00:30:02


00:30:03--> 00:30:05

LD was

00:30:09--> 00:30:26

salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome back brothers mashallah so long wait that was Masha Allah so before we get to the end of the show Tala Tala we have some questions which have come to us masala via WhatsApp you still have the opportunity to call us in there was one caller I'm not sure if that caller still on the line maybe they left

00:30:28--> 00:30:30

Oh, you're still on mashallah so to give you a thing Salam aleikum.

00:30:31--> 00:30:34

Wa salaam Yes, Brother, what's your question? Sheikh?

00:30:35--> 00:30:43

Can you trim the mustache? In? Sorry, can you can you shave the mustache instead of trimming it? And can Muslims wear poppies?

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

Well, okay, okay.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

Thank you, Bella, may Allah bless you.

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

Okay, these are two

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

good questions. The first question is concerning

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

the moustache.

00:31:01--> 00:31:05

And in Islam, do we trim it? Or do we shave it?

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

There are two views on this. There is a view

00:31:13--> 00:31:17

one of them that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I shudder to mineral FITARA

00:31:18--> 00:31:30

that there are 10 matters from the natural disposition. Some of them are specific to men and some are general for both men and women, from them as us for sheriff, and from them in this particular situation

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

is to trim the mustache.

00:31:36--> 00:31:41

It is also narrated that the shaving the mustache is also

00:31:43--> 00:31:54

is permitted. And it's a valid filler. It's a valid difference of opinion amongst the scholars, depending on if you'd like the school of thought to let you follow whether it is trimmed or to shaved.

00:31:57--> 00:32:15

With regards to the shaving? Of course, it is oh, it's removed completely. So there's no issue or further issues. Meaning that if you have those are of the opinion that you've trimmed the mustache, if to ensure that trimming the mustache means what? That none of the mustache goes you know, blow into your lip and things like that it's above the lip. Okay.

00:32:16--> 00:32:24

So this is the two views. New follow the view of the scholar with the madhhab, the school of thought that you follow up again, as I mentioned, it is

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

a valid laugh or valid difference of opinion amongst scholars. Wallah who

00:32:34--> 00:32:35

live second question is wearing the puppy.

00:32:37--> 00:32:41

This comes under what if you like is the wearing of any

00:32:43--> 00:33:04

disk display or something and we'll have a look at his origin, what it represents what you're going to wear, what it represents? Is this something that as a Muslim that I participate in or not. And that if I don't pay if I do participated in and you look at the ramifications, what it means.

00:33:05--> 00:33:11

And if I don't participate or don't wear that, is that a sign of disrespect?

00:33:12--> 00:33:25

So it's very, very important really to find the correct position on that. So like anything, what does it represent? If it is something which is fine for us as Muslims to

00:33:26--> 00:33:32

remember, as this is what it is for to remember the those who died

00:33:34--> 00:33:46

around the world. In wars that came in the past, whether they were was of justice was a fairness was of oppression,

00:33:48--> 00:34:19

the support to one side really? And it is that because it's your nationality, you believe it's right for you to stand up for that and you wear that puppy. So if you do so you have the right to do so. And that is part of what of what and who you are. And you have the right to do that. If those who believe that, as a Muslim have to make it clear that those wars which maybe weren't from an Islamic perspective, maybe weren't just one fear.

00:34:20--> 00:34:43

And I would refrain from doing that. Okay. Don't have to disrespect wouldn't have necessarily have to even comment on it. You have to say anything. But people are entitled to wear what they like. And people are entitled to refrain from what they like. It doesn't mean that if you do or rather that you don't wear it's a sign of disrespect, but if you do something then it is of course a display that you are upholding something.

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

So the Muslim is very clear

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

on whatever they were that it is in line with what Allah is pleased with.

00:34:52--> 00:34:57

It is in line with our identity as a Muslim. And so therefore

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


00:35:00--> 00:35:03

wearing anything like this would go back to,

00:35:04--> 00:35:18

if you like, what you believe is correct. And so therefore, if you believe that, as a Muslim, I would prefer to stay away from that, because of my teachings that I find in the Quran and the Sunnah, that, you know, you will find we're doing that

00:35:19--> 00:35:41

it is no doubt a sensitive matter, because we're talking about those who passed away. And as the prophets are some said that you do not curse. You know, in general, we don't curse, the dead, those who passed away, they passed it with anything, but whatever they put forth, they will face a loss of panel data with it. But if you know as a Muslim, you refrain from doing that. And it's not just with the poppy In fact, there's the red poppy, there is the white Poppy,

00:35:42--> 00:35:46

the white Poppy difference, if you'd like from the red poppy

00:35:47--> 00:35:57

and it is this time of year that people are wearing it. Because of the remembrance, Sunday, which is in the second week of November, whether Sunday that may be I think,

00:35:59--> 00:36:33

could be around the 10th or the 11th of November this year. Not sure but so as a Muslim, we are required as Muslims to seek Allah's pantallas forgiveness for those who died upon Islam and those who died upon other than Islam, we don't do that. And if something like that is rapidly a representation of asking forgiveness for them, then we'd refrain from doing that. Okay, and if it is a reminder for us to what was done, then, you know, if I believe that not everything was done in the correct way, I have the right to say that I don't want to wear it. It's not a sign of disrespect. I just don't want to another have to participate in that. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

to that what is best along that mean?

00:36:37--> 00:36:47

Okay, so there's another question he shouted out, or questions rather via the WhatsApp. I am 16 My parents asked me to trim my beard is it haram to trim the beard.

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

So we have

00:36:52--> 00:37:00

two issues here, and that is listening to one's parents. It's an obligation to listen to your parents, however, on issues which

00:37:02--> 00:37:22

maybe go against the teachings of Islam, so if your parents said, shave your beard, okay, and there is no need for you to do that, and you can explain to them you should explain to them that Islam This is the ruling. And it is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and I wish to follow the way of the Prophet LSS. And I would not like to disobey the prophets, I celebrate that. As for trimming, shaving, is one thing, trimming is another,

00:37:23--> 00:37:53

I would suggest that you sit down with your parents, okay? And explain to them that you know, 16 that you're you know, becoming into young adult now this is what you want to identify yourself with. And try to explain to them the best way in the best respectful way why you want to have your beard and try to get their understanding as well and come to somewhere in the middle inshallah Tada and I'm sure that Allah Subhana Allah will allow you to come to a suitable a respectful understanding between yourselves. And may Allah has gone through that.

00:37:57--> 00:38:28

What colors can a woman dye her hair? And is this halal? Yeah, yeah. And in general, if he wants to dye her hair, different colors, that's fine. No problem. There's not Islam says okay, you know, there's a code book, these are the colors that are allowed for you. And these are haram colors, we'd have these books. Okay. It's customarily what is acceptable in Charlottetown those colors which are like bizarre and follows of non Muslim ways and you know, people who are known for their wrongdoing that yes, stay away from that. But you know, you want to dye your hair with henna or

00:38:30--> 00:38:38

I don't know what colors you have like just not red and chestnut brown of these colors. And these things or no problem shot at it with the diet blonde, if you like, it's up to you. No problem shatta.

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

Wale item,

00:38:43--> 00:38:55

is there. What is the ruling concerning participating in Valentine's Day? Is there anything against it in Islam? Well, I'm not sure if because of what I spoke about, in part one, do you want to make Toba from it? Or you want to get ready for it?

00:38:56--> 00:39:32

In both situations, May Allah guide us and may Allah forgive us all. But Valentine's is one of those celebrations, which again, you know, subhanAllah is has crept its way into the Muslim kind of communities. There's an opportunity for you to show your, your love for your hobby or your hobby, but in a secret way. I mean, if it is halal for you, if it's your wife, your husband, you don't need to be secret about anything, you should be showing your love and compassion respect to them all the time. And if you are a person who was only to do at that time and thermoskin you know, Subhan Allah, May Allah guide you if you only brought something which is good for your husband or your wife at

00:39:32--> 00:39:59

this time of the year, at a time when it is based upon martyrs of a different faith. And that they took that as a different setup at UCLA was about how can we allow Israel guide you guide us all? So such a celebration is not from Islam has polytheistic origins So undoubtedly, it is not an Islamic celebration is not for us to participate in and not to be belittled. Ie that war is just an opportunity

00:40:00--> 00:40:21

He for me to show as I mentioned love to my husband to my wife. Really you have to be reminded by other ways, Islam is not sufficient for you to be told the amount of reminders how the prophets I said and told us to be merciful and good and loving and compassionate to your wife. This is not enough for you to do that the whole year that you need to be reminded by others to do this

00:40:23--> 00:40:51

we are not in a good way if this is the situation really will lie and we are not in a good way if they rely on such reminders. So number one each 10 Stay away from that and be loving and compassionate and good to your wife the whole year. Okay. If you haven't bought flowers, flowers is is corny. No worries, but your wife might like it. Okay, some sweets or some chocolate or something healthy even. Okay, no problem. Do something be regular with that with your wife and vice versa. Okay. May Allah guide us to that what is best I mean

00:40:52--> 00:41:24

I'm a sister who has been divorced for many years and don't have a Muharram in the UK who can be my Willie if I get married? Well even though they're in a different country, they're still your Willie you speak with them. Okay, and they can maybe appoint somebody in the same country as you to represent them in your country don't just go ahead and do you do it yourself. Okay. So, you speak to who is your Willie wherever they are upon this earth and arrange with them that they can maybe they can come here or they can appoint somebody maybe an imam of the masjid to represent you if you want to get married Inshallah, to Allah. Okay, but in the sisters, we have some more questions.

00:41:24--> 00:41:42

Unfortunately, we have run out of time. quite an eventful and wide spectrum of questions we had today. May Allah subhanaw taala forgive us when except from us. I mean, we'll come to the end brother and sisters until we meet next time Baraka lofi come a ceremony. Komarov Matala. heatable bochetto Yeah, are you
