matters which are the virtues are established authentically, by all means you go ahead and do that Chinatown things which are doubtful about and you're sure.
Then we start talking about
you know acting upon Allah Manabi Hadith and what is are we allowed to act upon a week live Hadith which is
very for not this is an issue which the scholars have had a different sort of approach to
maybe this is maybe not the time to go into some depth in that, but if you know something to be life with regards to virtues, we will not establish the virtue to that. Okay. And I hope that answers your question, John.
Thank you so much, my brother, he showed me still on the line. Yes. Does that answer your question? Yes.
Okay. hamdulillah thank you so much. For your call my brother, may Allah bless you, and give you success. Our next question. But before that, I'd like to just remind our viewers at home. We're live on ASCII man, and we're going to be here up until nine o'clock inshallah. So that's another 40 minutes live. So if you have any questions for our shifts at Iman, we're seeing Kempson, you're able to give us a call on Oh 203-515-0769. For everyone who's watching from outside of the UK or inside the UK, we'd like to give us a call from your whatsapp app that you're able to call us on oh seven four to 2398833 You can also send messages your questions via iMessage to this number as well in
our next question chef is
my my question is I struggled to keep although my I have wind problem, I may step out of the bathroom of toto and break wind I make hold off for each prayer but whilst reading it can happen several times I'm at home I can I can eat salah I can pray eat salah, but if I'm outside I can I cannot have changed my diet. I have several health conditions, diabetes, asthma, and many others as well that I mentioned. mela make easy. What can I do? Secondly, find that work? Can I combine my prayers as by the time I come home? There is no time. What would I read? For example, for murder? What would I read? Example might have been an issue, would I just read the fault or the full press
keeping in mind I only have one break, which is only 20 minutes to Zack allotted.
So there are parts of the question Which to be honest, that I'd prefer if somebody can, you can speak to somebody face to face, especially about the work issue. I don't know how long you're working for, especially in the summer now when the prayers are so SOS you know, you're not gonna get a time in the year when the prayers are so far apart.
And you're talking about you know, joining a salawat and you get a 20 minute break
I would say the origin is that you really should pray the Salawat in their time
as for the issue before that,
that if somebody has a medical issue where they're unable to keep their will do
then essentially all they need to do in sha Allah Tada is at the time of Salah when they're going to pray is that they make they will do and then they go and pray now regardless of what happens after they make they will do that they pray in the state that they are in even if they asked when it's not something they can control, but yet they still pray in Chinatown and absolutely your prayer is so he is valid either relate to either another solution for you is that you can do something called Jimmy or Saudi and that is an apparent joining of the press and what I mean by that is that let's say
so a lot of the horror comes in obviously when so a lot of the horror finishes acid comes in straight away. Let's say now the acid comes in at Harper's five okay Harper's five in the afternoon, if you wanted to delay salata verhuur to about quarter past 20 past five, okay and you won't because it's difficult for you to keep making model so you make will just before you're going to press a lot of the edits last time
then you press a lot of the horror and pretty much when you finish a lot of the hurt the Time Force A lot will also will come in
there's no need for you to go repeat your Salah again repeat your word or I should say there's no need for you to repeat your will or the will that you have at that time. You can then go on to pray salata Laaser straightaway John Italia and here you have prayed both prayers in their time and because of the difficulty
that you have, this is inshallah posted perfectly fine for you. The origin is that obviously praying the Salawat in the earliest possible time is is
better, but, you know, people who have certain situations especially like this to make it easier for them than a person can go and do that job. Well
thank you Sure. Our next question is going to come from our caller in sha Allah says Salam Alikum to our brother or sister on the line Welcome to the show. What's your name and where are you calling from?
Are you gonna sit down whether how are you?
Masala Welcome to the show my brother I'm well how are you?
question for a chef
you can go ahead. I have three questions for Chef insha Allah
okay, you can go ahead.
Yeah. Okay. First my first question is our religion Islam how we how we will be gender interact? Like how can male female interact with in
keeping the Sharia guidelines intact, like repetitive Stan or with a young person? The second question is what is the ruling on watching videos like social media secretaries that have background music running in the back?
And my third question is, suppose if they're a person who were interested to marry, then keeping the Sharia guidelines how can both male and female know each other in the exchange? Social media and contact number isn't
gonna shift not one of them. You got them? Yeah. Okay, good.
Okay, we're gonna move on to our next caller. Thank you so much to our brother for calling. We'll get to your questions after our next caller inshallah. So as salam aleikum to our brother or sister on the line, welcome to the show. What's your name? And where are you calling from our family come to shake and the whole list. My name is Ostia and I'm speaking from Watford. My question is about the God shows I have saved some deposit for my house. And it wasn't easy. I had to cut down many expenses and so it wasn't an easy task. So I have saved some money. I just want to ask you Do I have to pay the card on this?
Thank you. Alright, yeah, so we have about 40 seconds for break. So would you like to answer the last one a lot. So the sister may Allah Subhana Allah bless your wealth, make it easy for your sister. But even if you have money saved for buying a car, buying a house, whatever the case may be, that there's a car has to be paid on that on a yearly basis. Okay, so I understand your house but you would still have to pay the cabinet and a loss of paradise. Thank you. Sure. That brings us to our first break of the show brothers and sisters. We're gonna go now for a few minutes but do stay tuned and once we're back, give us a call in shop
Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and welcome back to today's ASCII men show, brothers and sisters, our children, if we have any watching, we're going to be with you here for the next 30 minutes live to take your questions. So if you have any do give us a call or send your questions, our WhatsApp number, email address. And if you're watching along on YouTube or Facebook, you're able to leave your questions at the comment section. Inshallah. So, we're back with Mr. Muhsin, Kempson, assalamu, Alikum chef, while you come set out, there's like a lot here, we have three callers on the line. But before we get to our brothers and sisters on the line, we do have to cover the questions
we had before the break. So our next question is
I believe the brother asked about interactions between genders was his first question. So if you can just take us through the how we're meant to behave in that in those situations, and where the relevance is for for interaction? This is a very broad question. I mean, we're in a show where we can answer questions that don't quiet require. And we'll have a lecture for this talking about what are the Islamic guidelines in interaction and this requires to give it a full justice or to be honest, a full lecture.
But nonetheless, some basic guidelines in that the men and the women to lower the gaze when if the there's a need to speak with one another, there's no touching. And feeling Allah subhanaw taala doesn't prevent people going about their normal business and shopping and working and going about what they need to do.
But remembering that respect, doing respecting and honoring the individual is is paramount.
And looking how the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would deal with, with people likewise the companions and how Allah Jalla wa Allah tells us to,
for us to conduct ourselves in this manner.
So we are aware of free mixing and the honest a free mixing and I mean, there's a kind of interaction between the genders without any guidelines at all, which can be problematic. Further down the line, and honest partners best. Thank you.
Brothers next next question was What about watching videos that have background music?
So if you're an individual who
views music as not allowed,
then, you know, you take that approach, that if something has music, you won't listen to it or you won't watch it.
If you're a little more relaxed on it, then you'll take that approach. You'll watch it but if you take the view that music is haram is not allowed,
you won't watch it.
Thank you, Chef.
Our next question was, again, the brother asked about when it comes to opposite genders exchanging contact details and also maybe a
Speaking on social media or I said, he said, I think he said exchanging details of social media. Yeah, again, the very broad question, you're exchanging details for what reason? Is that, you know, give me your number or contact, you're really, you know, I mean, I'm not sure what context you're talking about exchanging numbers exchanging information like this, essentially, as I mentioned, in the first question,
the Islamic guidelines that we have in dealing and respecting and honoring that individual, depending on what circumstance it is, if it's work related, if it's,
you know, there are guidelines concerning that. And if there's other issues, then we conduct ourselves in the guidelines that have been given to us, depending on the situation.
Okay, thank you. Sure. We're gonna move on now to our next caller of the show. So As Salam Alikum to our brother or sister on the line, welcome to the show. What's your name? And where are you calling from?
Yeah, my name is Imran. I'm calling from London. I remember that Imran. How are you today? Yeah, I'm good.
I'm Dylan, your question. My question is, I work as a mini cab driver. And normally the for the lockdown when it's a lot of time, obviously, I can go to the mosque and do my prayers. But
obviously, with the current situation is, you know, democracy closed. So, what are the share who recommend that I do in that scenario? Is it is it okay to sort of read in the car or
be suggested. Okay. Do you have any other questions?
Okay, thank you so much.
Yeah, so, may Allah bless you, brother, may Allah subhanaw taala increase you in risk, and make it easy for you and your family. I mean, and all those in that position, I understand that certain jobs have been affected quite drastically with the COVID 19 pandemic. Were working in as a taxi driver especially has been very difficult for them. Realize don't make it easy for them.
Now when you do decide to go out and work and the time for prayer
comes about obviously you can't go into the masjid I myself I've seen from a distance that the brother has got his prayer mat, and he puts it outside the masjid and prays in front of the masjid obviously, is not in the main road. I was blocking people. He chose a masjid where it's kind of like they got their own area, if it's open that is, doesn't have to be that point being that the person chose a suitable area to offer their Salah where they're not going to be disturbing others or they're going to be disturbed. And Ebola he was here that Allah azza wa jal is his his earth is spacious. London is a big city to another city, I'm sure that is spatial as well. Species is where
you can find a place where it's away from the people you can offer your Salah outside and as long as you have the opportunity of standing up in prayer, it wouldn't be a doubt for you and it's not right for you to pray just sitting in your in your car.
Thank you so much. We're gonna move on now to our next caller. Thank you so much for your call brother Imran May Allah bless you. Salam Alaikum to our brother or sister on the line. Welcome to the show. What's your name and where are you calling from? By our flow we get to my name is Junaid I'm calling from London? How are you?
Brother Geneva hamdulillah and how we handled on very good.
I had to have two questions for the chef and Charlie's open.
Yep. Okay, so my first question is to do with like our immediate family. Because we have obviously
we have like my sisters, some of them are married. So their brother in law's come over and everything and so when we're all together like this, I want to know about like come we want to know about how to like, what's the right kind of segregation that we should be taking if it like come can we be sitting in the same room? And then even can we like just be chilling and talking with each other like, like the like a brother in law speaking to someone who's a non Muslim and everything like that, and it's fine that we're doing like, like more like, what kind of segregation should we be taking stuff the first one and the second question is kind of to do with that is is that as a
family including like my brother in law and like for example, my sister who's you know, married? Can we all like play a game together for example, like a board game and everything like that? Would that be permissible by family even though
there my Hamza there my sister, like our brothers in my mom and dad, wouldn't be allowed will not be allowed to provide evidence. Thank you.
Crystal Ball, the game crashing. Alright, thank you so much, my brother for your call. Brother Junaid. We're just gonna move on to our next quarter. We'll come back to the two questions after our next call. So As Salam Alikum to our brother or sister on the line, welcome to the show. What's your name and where are you calling from?
My name is Amar Sookie and I'm calling from LA
Then mashallah, how old do you are 11 years old? 11 years old? Mashallah. And how are you today? Okay, final hamdulillah how are you? I'm well, thank you for asking How was your Ramadan and your eat? I was good. How was your underlay was very good. I enjoyed it. It was locked down, but I enjoyed it hamdulillah
question. I've got two questions. Okay, you can go ahead.
The first one is are women allowed to lead the prayer? And the second one is? Can Can you play while driving me? Can you pray while you're traveling? Okay, so the first one, are you allowed to leave prayer? Is that what you ask? I like to be the prayer. Oh, lead it. Okay. Yeah. Being 11 years old already said a woman didn't? Yeah, did he? Well, you can ask him again.
What was the first question? What if you don't mind repeating it one more time. Women are allowed to lead the prayer. You know, Schaeffer seems hearing is always
it's always been the case. Okay, then I thought you said that you are you allowed. Thank you so much. My young brother, do you have any more questions?
Okay, I think he's gone. So thank you so much for your call. All right. So are women allowed to leave the prayer? And are you allowed to pray while struggling? The first question from our previous quarter our brother asked
what are the rules when it comes to segregation around immediate family? Yeah. Okay.
with regards to interaction between men and women, then we do have etiquettes and guidelines concerning them.
And this is found in the Quran.
And this is also found in the practice of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe. Salam, I had found in Surah, to know about the lowering of the gaze that I mentioned earlier, in a previous, some previous questions about the men and women lowering their gaze to non Muslims.
And also Allah subhanaw taala, speaking about more serious matters about which may you know, a person may fall into more serious matters.
The practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Omaha Talmud meaning the Mothers of the Believers,
the wives of the messenger salAllahu alayhi salam in the way that they would
be an example, as a family, the household of the Prophet alayhi salam, which of course, has a greater honor than anybody else. But there's also an example for us that there was no mixing in the way that, you know, the question has has been
And that kind of has a knock on effect and answering the second question and playing games together and things like that, where it is difficult, if imperfect in such an arrangement where,
you know, the person has been saying, Oh, you're a bit of a spoilsport already playing a game. Okay, maybe playing a game. But the point is not the game. The point is, what guidelines are you adhering to, in doing what you're doing? Because everything we do as Muslims should have some form of guidance from the Quran and Sunnah and practice of from Islam, and that what is better for us? That was more pure for us. And so I think, as you know, when the Prophet sallallahu sallam was asked about the inlaws, he said, a homily mode that employs you know, is a very strong term, his death and the severity of the mixing like this, it is very, very severe. So, if before, if you look at before
and after, because Alhamdulillah it seems that all the, you know, the brothers mentioned his sisters are married, and
we ask Allah to bless them on their families, that they have husbands now, before
they were married, would they freely mix with non Muslims in the home? But they play board games with non Muslims in the home?
Probably, I assume, maybe not. Now, does that ruling now change just because he's both your brother in law, now you play games together.
So there's, we have to be careful that just as you may be protective over your womenfolk in this manner, that before marriage, you're not going to have non Muslims coming to your house and playing Scrabble and monopoly and things like that, why marriage and that person is still a non Muharram to you? Why that somehow changes the voting because it doesn't. Okay. So if somebody wants to ensure the data, from the very outset, preserve
themselves in the best way then I think, and I think honestly, women enjoy women's company best when they're getting together, they can relax as the brothers do. Okay. And Allah.
Thank you, Chef. Our next question
was from our young brother, mashallah, who called 11 years old from London.
He asked Are women allowed to lead press okay? So women leading women in Salah is perfectly fine insha Allah Tala according to the vast majority of the
women leading women, absolutely no problem shaitana Women limit leading men in Salah that is not allowed, is not permitted in Islam. So, you know maybe mom knows more Quran and dad and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said You're welcome a Quran, Vicki tabula, the person who knows the majority of most Quran should lead the people in prayer. So therefore, Mom leads the Salah, and that's and that's, you know, behind with with his daughter or son doesn't like this, the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam is that the men that they will lead the prayer, whether there's a group of sisters at home, you know, two sisters, five sisters at home, and they want to establish a
matter between themselves, then there's no problem the sisters praying together and a woman leading other women in Salah. Absolutely no problem in Charlottetown.
Thank you so much.
Our next question from our young brother was are you allowed to pray whilst traveling?
So while a traveler
then yes, it's allowed. If you consider the traveler, then you can shorten and join your press. But it is, yes, absolutely fine for you to join your prayers. You don't. You're on a journey. You don't suddenly stop praying. I'm not sure if the young brother meant something other than what I'm answering or something. I think it goes without saying that. Yes, of course you pray at all times.
I'm not sure maybe if that's if that's what he meant, then that's the answer. If there was something else then of course, he has the right to your phone in Charlottetown. and clarify the question. Would that would is there? Are you allowed to delay your prayer or maybe collect the mood for the end of the day, for example, you're traveling for nine hours or something like yeah, so So the joining of the prayer is has some regulations so you're allowed to join the Ohana NASA. So once you have departed and you've begun your journey outside of your city, wherever you're going
then you can bet you can pray for NASA and slower time or you can delay the horse until all sort of time you play them together and they'd be afraid to rock each similarly for so little McGraw been a shirt that you can pray if you're on a journey you went out you know, on your way that you can pray a lot of Margaret in Asia in Margaret time you pray Maghrib three, and you pray Salah Tanisha to raka or you can delay Maghrib until so allotted a short time, you know a person might think that all the prayers are haft. So the whole was for is now to also it was for us now to Marguerite was three is now one and a half is not marketed stays the same. And federally stays the same as to Fajr, by
the way is not joined to any press that remains to be paid at its time on its own. Well.
Thank you so much. Okay, we're gonna go to our calls now. Salam Alikum to our brother or sister on the line. Welcome to the show. What's your name? And where are you calling from?
My name is Stacy. I'm calling from chatter. I want
to start on your question.
My question is
a relative of mine
died last year. And I was practicing. Until then I lost my way and path. I've been trying to practice
some of again, but it feels disconnected. I'm just wondering what I can do to try and get my face back.
Okay. Do you have any other questions? Cisco.
Alright, and so if you'd like to stay on the line, and our chef would answer you now, if you have any further questions after that, you're very welcome to ask. Thank you. Yes, absolutely fine, insha Allah. So
sometimes things can happen in our lives, which cause us to have like an internal shock. And we can react in different ways.
I'll ask Allah make it easy for this sister.
What I would say is that if a person feels that, you know, they're in I think, for everybody, there are trying times with regards to practicing Islam that we need. We need maybe sometimes speak with somebody to if there are particular issues, which I caused me to have questions, not necessarily doubts that you have questions, okay. And there's a difference between the two. Because a person may say, I've got doubts about my faith. That's not the same as a person having questions, as a person may have genuine questions, but then a person interprets that as I've got doubts about my faith. And because I've got doubts, therefore, I can't be a believer. That's not the case at all. Not everybody
has knowledge about everything. And if you have any questions, the best way to resolve those questions is obviously to find somebody to to answer those
So what I would say to the sister is that is to
this is, of course, not necessarily the most
extensive way of answering, you know, the issues concerning our sister, Stacy. But rather if she can meet with somebody, nothing need to call somebody to speak to somebody who can maybe have a chat with her. Especially a river. That would be, you know, a bonus, not a must but a bonus because arriva will be able to relate to the issues that you know, people revert to go through. But it's not a river. It's not a problem, a person who can advise and counsel in the very best way and there are many organizations
who deal with
these kinds of issues.
So what I would say is that it is something recoverable. You know, there was a point in time when you accepted Islam, and you were convinced by SLM. And that's something which no doubt can be strengthened again, in childhood, it's not it's not lost.
You shouldn't be too hard on yourself, you know, sometimes things can happen in our lives.
But the fact is that, you know, a year later, after you just mentioned something happened a year ago, and now a year later, you're calling on an Islamic show. And asking about, about your faith
goes a long way. There's something still remains within you, that you feel it important enough to you. And it is valuable enough to you to start read, wanting to rediscover that what you once had, because, you know, it could be quite easily the situation where I just, I couldn't care less, I'm just going to live my life, how I'm going to live my life. But Allah has placed something in your heart. And there is emotion in your heart that you want to rediscover something that maybe you once had. And I'm sure that that will be the case of Chantal, if you take the necessary right steps in speaking to the right people to advise you. Even if it if it's through the channel. Or in your local
area, there's an organization which helps not you know, new Muslims, then I would definitely try to do that shot Attalla but the fact I'd say that you've called after a year that there was there was great hope for you in sha Allah to Allah. May Allah make easy for you. Thank you Sure.
Does exactly like it. Thank you so much.
Are you still on the line? Yes, I am. Yes. Do you want to ask any more questions? Is that was that answer okay for you to die? That's fine. What are the organizations are wanting to speak to? Okay, so if stay on the line, and you're going to take into speak to someone, one of the producers and there'll be able to pull you in the right direction or point you in the right direction? Is that okay?
Okay, thank you so much. Okay, we're gonna move on now to our next caller As Salam aleikum to our brother or sister on the line. Welcome to the show. What's your name? And where are you calling from?
I'm Ali Khan. Welcome to the show and your question.
I've got two questions. The first question is
when you think behind the Imam, and when you're in the first off, and you finish reading before the Imam Are you allowed to make the other just like the last question, what are you have to keep quiet?
My second question is when you're listening to Quran, is it? Can you read alongside the recital? Or is it best to just keep quiet and listen?
Okay, thank you so much. Do you have any other questions system? No.
Okay, we're gonna so just stay on. Stay keep just stay tuned. And we're gonna move on to our next caller. In a short while, we'll be answering your question a shortlist. So thank you so much for your call system.
Islam article. So welcome to our next caller. Welcome to the show. What's your name? And where are you calling from?
I'm calling from London.
Welcome to the show since then, your question.
My question is, is that going to
work? So I left my job. And I used to, for example,
for the sake of brevity used to do such as data entry. And I had this paperwork with me at home because of the lockdown. Since then, I left and I realized that I may have not entered a certain amount of paperwork.
I'm not able to enter this anymore. So and I'm no longer with the company. So I'm just wondering, will I be accountable for it? Is there anything I need to do to make up for
the question here? Yeah, yeah, the question is very clear. Thank you so much.
Zack locker. Thank you so much. Just keep watching and we'll get to your question in a second.
While in Sharla,
okay, we're gonna go to our next caller now, Salam Alikum to our brother or sister on the line. Welcome to the show. What's your name? And where are you calling from?
My name is Dan. I'm calling from Newcastle. Welcome to the show, Sammy, and your question.
I have two seconds.
That's completely fine. You can go ahead. Okay, so my first question is, what are the rulings on fasting on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for a while.
And then it
is all women.
And when in
a lot more time are women allowed to do? What would the elbows are women and elbows on the ground?
Got it. Got it.
Got it. Thank you so much for your call. May Allah bless you. Okay, so now we're going to start with our answers. So the first question shift for my call. Is
we have two minutes left of the show.
About regarding to show you recall. Yeah, do well understood. So if you're reading the first childhood, and you finish your childhood,
of course, reading it yourself, and the mom still going, do you use anything you keep quiet? So you finish your T shirt. And then you wait for the Imam to finish his part. And then you'll you'll get up and you'll complete the branch on it. Thank you. Sure. Next question is reading over the recital was there reciting? Yeah. So there are times when you put a recital on you like that recital and you're reciting with the the recital with its Sheikh Mohammed Ibrahim, oh, Allah, or she has said he and you're reciting with them? Love. That's no problem. Okay. Next question is this is the extent she's left her work. And she's concerned about some work that was not completed, is she going to be
held accountable yet? So I would assume that upon completion of your work, that there is some form or process which they, whether it's terminated, would you hand it in, and that the job ends, and then I've got to chase you for anything. So if that is the case, they're not chasing you for anything that there's nothing upon you to do back for the company. But if you personally feel that there was some shortcomings, then you ask Allah subhanaw taala, for forgiveness for any shortcomings that you have done. Thank you. Sure. Our next question is the ruling on fasting Friday, Saturdays and Sundays,
debits and Charlottetown in Chawan. General and show specifically specifically making up those days for the purpose of show well, there's not a problem, inshallah. Tada. All right. And lastly, our young brother asked about women placing their elbows on the ground was praying. Yeah. So in principle, the man the prayer of the man and the prayer of the woman are the same. The Prophet alayhi wa sallam told us to raise our elbows off the floor. So based on this, we say that the woman should raise her elbows off the floor. Even if she tucks her arms in a little bit then do so. But not to be on the floor. Okay, not like this. So she should raise her elbows. There are times and
situations where she wants to make her body a little bit smaller, that that's acceptable in certain times. Other than that, she raises her elbows up at all times, just like diminish. Thank you, Chef, we go through all our questions. Thank you so much to everyone who's tuned in, we're gonna be back for our next show. Inshallah, at the same time, I said I'm Aliko for now or it will work at
