contentment and that Allah Subhana Allah makes us from those who are able to summon and call others to the courage of truth, spirit, fidelity and love for others, Allah I mean, it's a pleasure and an honor together with you once again. I'm your brother, yeah. Hey, Ibrahim, coming to you from my home here in Perth, Western Australia. On a regularly scheduled our Wednesday 12 noon for London. We pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, although we are many many miles apart, that he joins our hearts and our spirits in that which is pleasing to Him and allow us if we don't meet to meet each other in this worldly life, that we are gathered in the Ophira with our neighbor he Muhammad sallallahu

00:01:29--> 00:02:16

alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam happy when I said Lim Allah, I mean, welcome to Islam q&a, I look forward to this hour each and every week on Wednesday, 8pm here in Perth, noon in London, where we get a chance to inshallah engage with each other, listen to some of the questions that you may have and enrich the lives of others through insha Allah answers for them. I look forward in sha Allah to speaking with you about the prophets, I send them about our belief in Him our love for Him while I wait in dear anticipation for your questions as they come through live on air insha Allah with me. So please do call in you have the ability to call in and come live with your questions. Hopefully it

00:02:16--> 00:03:01

could be a sadhaka that you pass on to others. Perhaps you're thinking of a similar question with a similar concern, seeking clarity for it and you may be the one who leads them to that good insha Allah. Let's speak about our NABI Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let's make our evenings and mornings fragrant with his mansion. Let us be from those who will never his name, his description, his image, his persona, his pseudonym that is mentioned that we send our Durood salawat and salam upon him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have our first caller on the line in sha Allah. And we will continue with our discussions about the Sunnah and the prophets I send them when we have breaks

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

between the calls in sha Allah salam alaikum. Caller, how can I help?

00:03:06--> 00:03:06

Well, I'm

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

very pleased to speak to you I have

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

every week. So last week, I asked about

00:03:21--> 00:03:21

Yes.

00:03:23--> 00:03:23

explained to me

00:03:27--> 00:03:27

is for

00:03:31--> 00:04:15

Allah, Allah fair, that's a good clarification, I'm sure that would have been on other people's minds, it's actually for the meal that suffices for the breaking of the fast. So it should be a substantial meal. And usually the local aroma would put a price tag on what is considered of average price. Now a follow up question that might come to mind is, well, what if I'm going to feed poor people back home, and just say, you know, in Australia, the 50, a price here is about 12 to 13. Australian dollars, say about nine British pounds. Now you might say, well, you know, nine pounds isn't just for one person, that's where a lot of people in a place like Egypt that could feed a lot

00:04:15--> 00:04:59

of people in a place like Bangladesh or Somalia. So what I would say to you is you should pay it in the amount of the land that you're living in, even though you're feeding outside that land, and the amount is less than what is needed over there. So I would ask you to pay with the local currencies power and amount for that purpose. Insha Allah, so yes, the video is for one meal, and can be more than one meal, but it's limited at the very least of its limit is for one meal, and then we take this example from the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam JazakAllah him for that follow up call. It's appreciated. We have another caller on the line. I said I'm on a call

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

How can I help?

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

My little brother, I just wanted to ask due

00:05:07--> 00:05:21

diligence, diarization, they sort of take it from you, then this session. And they said that when you die, they will take care of your funeral, as they think I just posted

00:05:23--> 00:06:12

in our religion does zakat l'affaire sister so there are a number of schemes that will at work like a cooperative, where our community cooperative where people put in funds, almost like a savings plan, almost what we call in Islamic law, tech carefully, where we come together to assist one another in the difficulties that may arise. One of those instances are things like burial processes, which can be quite expensive. In some of the countries that we live in, on average, here in Australia, it's nearly seven and could reach up to eight, maybe even 910 $1,000, for an immediate burial. So sometimes it is something that could be an inconvenience for a family. So what some of

00:06:12--> 00:06:57

the messaggi do is that they have a scheme where people contribute a monthly amount, and over the amount of years, it covers those who will be buried, and it also covers those who fall short of it. So consider it my dear sister as an act of charity that you do for others. And that you consider it as an act of charity that you do, maybe for your immediate family who may be in a place where they are not convenient enough to have the funds themselves. And consider it a type of saving plans for your Dounia that passes you into the Alpha. I'm actually quite supportive of that in sha Allah, as long as the condition that is set by the organization, that if a person is traveling out of the

00:06:57--> 00:07:43

land, or traveling to a different city, and they will do retain some of what they have spent, that they can put it into another scheme, you moved from London to France or something and you want to be able to have that deposit that you've had allocated, that that should be something that you kind of consider discussing with them Insha Allah, only reason I bring that up is it is something that has become an issue in one of the two cases that I have had to settle as disputes between them. May Allah subhana wa Taala grant you and us a long life full of riba full of Baraka, full of good deeds. May Allah Subhana Allah allow us to plan for our home in the accurate plan for the happiness of

00:07:43--> 00:08:25

Jenna, and make us worthy of his Rama in this dunya an alpha Robin attina. Petunia has an awful awful lot. He has an Joaquina either now, Allahu mabie. Y'all know that? I mean, does that Allah hate for those two wonderful questions right off the bat, I think they are important for every one of our listeners. If there are other callers with questions, please do follow through Insha Allah, I wanted to talk to you about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when we speak about the word Sunette. So I wanted to clarify an important fact that there is a difference between the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the comprehensive, complete understanding that we

00:08:25--> 00:09:11

call suiting them. So if I was to give you an example, I could say, Hadith are like Lego blocks or bricks. So there's one Hadith, another Hadith, another Hadith, and they build the building the structure of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which means that if you actually look at just one Hadith on its own, if you analyze just one statement of the prophets, I said, but don't look at where it fits in the rest of the building. You don't take it in the context of the Quran, you don't look at the history of historicity of it, where it was in the moment of history when it was spoken. You don't attempt to weigh it out in the understanding of the soul the

00:09:11--> 00:09:57

principles, the foundational principles of the great Imams of our mother, Imam and Nora man and emammal Agha Al Imam, Abu Hanifa Imam Malik Al Imam, Mohamed Idris Shafi and then Imam Medina humble and others of the learning Imams who followed them in good example in treating in understanding and preaching the Sunnah of the prophets I send them an individual hadith is just a statement of the Prophet justice, statement and action of the prophets I send them or an acceptance of the words or the deeds of others in his presence that he recommended or that he was silent. A dissident didn't have this approval of peace and blessings be upon him. But there may be other Hadith that contradict

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

one. They could be ones that came

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

Before or after, they could be ones that contextualize another Hadith. And therefore not because a statement is in the words of the prophets, I send them that that automatically makes it equal to us establishing it as an independent, or unilateral or complete understanding of the pseudonym. The certain of the prophets I send them is a coherent way of life. It's where there is a capture of the picture of the life of the prophet Sallallahu, alayhi, wasallam, habits, modalities, approvals, disapprovals permissions that he had given peace and blessings be upon him. So we do separate between a unilateral, single statement of the Prophet iclm and the understanding of the Sunnah, in a

00:10:47--> 00:10:52

concept in totality, we have another caller on the line. I said, Mr. You can call her How can I help?

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

Yes, sister, it's good to hear from her How can I help you, sister?

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

Brother, my question is regarding breaking the tie of

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

dealing with narcissistic siblings

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

very much into

00:11:18--> 00:11:23

so how to handle situations without actually breaking the tie of.

00:11:26--> 00:12:11

I will rephrase your question in sha Allah, our sister does Allah says she's asking, how do we deal with individuals who have narcissistic tendencies? Who I guess for an easier way of describing that who are toxic, who are not pleasant to be around? Who are difficult to deal with? How do we deal with toxic personalities, especially if they are parents or siblings or brothers or people who are important to us in our life that we can't just stop communicating with them in it's entirely an entirety and we don't want to displease Allah in our behavior in our dealing with them. Let me I guess,

00:12:13--> 00:12:22

kind of deal with this issue in a comprehensive sense, because this is something that many of us deal with. And it's not an uncommon question. It's something that many of us

00:12:23--> 00:13:01

have to live with. The first thing my dear sister, is stop trying to please them, and try to please Allah instead. And that becomes really important right? At the prophets, I seldom says enamel Mr. Roubini, yet your actions are judged by their intentions. A lot of times when I sit with an individual counseling them spiritually seeking to uplift them, mediating between them, I'm a qualified mediator, as I sit to try to mediate between parties. One of the things that I remind Muslim clients with is to say to them, my dear brother, the prophets, I send them says enamel Amell Widney, yet your actions are judged by your intention. And one of the basis of our life is that we

00:13:01--> 00:13:46

do things for Allah seeking Allah seeking baraka from Allah, the pleasure of Allah, not necessarily for other people. And if you're going to treat people well, just because you expect them to thank you expect them to appreciate it's expect them to be favorable to you, then you're actually letting yourself down because it is Allah who is our pursuit, it is Allah who we are seeking. And if we kind of recalibrate our focus, that I don't have to like the person to treat them respectfully, I'm treating them respectfully, even if I may not receive the same level of respect, even if I may not assume that they would be respectful to me, I do it not because they are worthy of it. But because

00:13:46--> 00:14:34

Allah is the one that I'm seeking to please. So stop trying to please them, and make your focus Allah number two, set and enforce boundaries that work for you, not for them, make boundaries, set boundaries, and it could be even with your own, you know, direct nearest family, it might be that you only meet your brother, his wife, and, you know, on occasions that are, you know, necessary for us as Muslims in occasions where all of the family comes, because you don't get along with, you know, somebody that is with him or with her, you have a problem with them. There's something that has happened, then maintain the ties that are in a boundary that is not displeasing to Allah

00:14:34--> 00:15:00

subhanaw taala that keeps continuing, opening the door to more goodness as you move forward. So you don't want regression. You don't want to open the door and then you have to slam it completely and you don't never see each other. Rather open it slightly and then a little wider, and build more trust and set boundaries that work for you. Not necessarily work for others. Number three, don't try to change

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Anyone, don't try to change them. Don't assume that just because you can, you're willing them to become better, or I'm going to do everything I can to change this about them. I'm going to cure them of this issue, I'm going to make sure that you know that you're just bringing yourself to a point of pain. There are people who are set in their life upon a path of destruction, self destruction, self implosion, we give them see how we provide assistance in what pleases Allah. But we recognize the example of Prophet nor Halle salaam, that he doesn't let his son his own flesh and blood on the ship of salvation until he first relinquishes the scenes in the disobedience and disbelief in a lot,

00:15:45--> 00:16:29

because we can never change that which is illegitimate, to make it and assume it to be legitimate just because we seek to win a person over number four, be mindful of what you share with them. Be mindful of other people's jealousy. You know, the prophets, Allah Azza wa sallam said, Nothing. Listen to this hadith of the prophets, I send them nothing puts a camel in a pot more than the evil eye what it means is, you know, back then, you know, somebody would have a nice camel. And they would walk by and people said, Whoa, that camel that's a that's a nice camel, you know that your camel is it looks quick and looks like it's healthy Subhanallah they would give it the evil eye they

00:16:29--> 00:17:11

didn't say mashallah, they didn't have good intent in their heart towards them. So the camel falls breaks a leg something have they have to put it down they have to cook it. And therefore, nothing puts camels in the pot quicker than the MD and the evil eye. When I have the prophets, I seldom said that i is a reality. There are some people you can share a photo with others you don't. There are some people you share good news with others you don't. There are some people you have in your inner circle from your family. And there are other people from your family, who you don't, not out of spite, but out of self preservation and prediction. Number five, know your limitations and know

00:17:11--> 00:17:59

their limitations. Know when things are going too far. And know when things are getting out of hand and pull back. When things are getting too hot. Don't get it to a place where you're angry, and say what you will regret and cause you and others pain down the road. I'm hoping that that's helpful in dealing with dysfunctional or toxic members of our family. There's so much more that could be said. May Allah subhanaw taala create greater ease and comfort Allah I mean, you know, behind me, we have Insha Allah, a great opportunity to understand that the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not just meant to be something that calls us to do good. But it was also something that

00:17:59--> 00:18:43

calls us to do good as a good example to others, and also for big wrong when it's necessary. And that's something that as Muslim sometimes we struggle with. It's very easy for us to say, you know, you should do this, and this is good and this is good. And it becomes more difficult when we enjoin upon others to stay away from the haram to be distinct from it is sometimes it puts us in the target between us and others. And we pray that Allah subhana wa Tada gives us the strength of purpose, that we can stand up for the truth stand up for that which is right, and do it in a rightful way. Never Be the one who is critiquing and criticizing in an approach in an in in an inappropriate way. Just

00:18:43--> 00:19:09

like we can give Dawa there is also an Dawa, where we undo the good of leading people to Allah. We're going to take our short break for the event of Salado in London. After a few minutes we will resume our question and answer live on air with you again, please call in and I look forward to your calls in chatbot your brother Yeah, was sent out my legal what not to lie he wabarakatuh

00:19:26--> 00:19:56

Salam Alaikum My dear brothers and sisters who are watching on the live streams on my Instagram on Facebook and YouTube, I'm happy to take your calls. Now while we're on this break. I don't know. If you're the first time with us. This is usually when I can kind of scroll through some of the messages that you put. Do let us know where you're watching in from I always like to see mashallah, at this time, it's in the evening here in Perth in Western Australia. Where are you guys? Joining us from insha Allah it's always interesting to see

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

we have some of our brothers

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

and sisters

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

who are sharing with us from different parts of the world mashallah we got the UK of course

00:20:10--> 00:20:26

Masha Allah, Allah Allah we got the US we got your we got London we have over on our Instagram where do i Where do we have our brother mashallah we got Malaysia we got others Alhamdulillah

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

Masha Allah Tala camera man

00:20:33--> 00:20:48

do let us know where you are listening from insha Allah and if you do have questions send the questions through please don't ask to be included in the video or in the live link I'm not going to be able to get you on in sha Allah but I would enjoy

00:20:49--> 00:20:56

taking some time to answer some of your questions if they're pertinent. We got people from Indonesia, Abu Dhabi, masha Allah

00:20:59--> 00:21:00

sha Allah Tala cut ramen

00:21:03--> 00:21:04

All right.

00:21:05--> 00:21:38

We have one question from Omar Omar la Masha Allah, an orphaned abandoned child have a portion of inheritance in the FOS of the foster parents will have the foster parents have made it as a HIPAA, meaning as an endowment as a gift. It is of course acceptable. It's not necessarily called inheritance in the language of the Quran, but it is something that can be made as a section that is provided for them in sha Allah, there was no problem with that in the learning to Allah.

00:21:40--> 00:22:26

It is something that can be accepted. In sha Allah, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to put Baraka into Grinter success, Allah I mean, is it permissible to work in a finance trading company, as an audio visual engineer, generally speaking, working, the job that you are paid for, is what you kind of qualify and assess in the legality of it, as long as it's not in the material issues that are leading to things that are haram. And, you know, this is actually a really detailed topic, I will actually shut Allah endeavor to make a public lecture on that. What does it mean to assist others in Haram? Because there's a very important scheme of us understanding, you know, am I a part of leading

00:22:26--> 00:22:50

people to that which is sinful by being party in one way or another? To that we ask a lot to protect you from that allotment. I mean, personally, I do not believe with the audio video engineering, that there is an issue in that in sha Allah, we got a question on the Instagram chat. What do you think about Muslim leaders who are silent about the injustice as to Muslims happening around the world? It depends what you mean by Muslim leaders, right.

00:22:51--> 00:23:33

Some people are seen as leaders, although they never asked to be a leader. Some people are given a position in politics, where they are doing things perhaps in the in the back rooms that we're not aware of, in the front rooms, perhaps there are issues that are, you know, not necessarily always publicly on display. One of the things that I've come to know is that there's a lot of politicians who say a lot of good things in public, but do a lot of not very good things in hidden. And there's a lot of politicians who do a lot of good things in the background, but don't necessarily take the public stands for them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala correct all of our leaders, we make dua for our

00:23:33--> 00:24:15

brothers and sisters, ourselves, all of us in difficulties in one way or another. And sometimes we assume that those who are oppressed or hungry or thirsty are in a worse position than us, because we've been well fed and secure. Rather, it is a test from Allah upon us, that sometimes we fail, while they pass with the ease that they have been blessed with in terms of the hardship that they face in the dunya. May Allah protect us Allah? I mean, we have another question on our Instagram feed is had obligatory for an unmarried woman that has the financial means for which the Father can not go should such a woman go with her uncle, for example, if the Muslim sister has the financial

00:24:15--> 00:24:56

means has the physical energy and has a maharam who is able to take her or have the guarantee of safety and security, especially these difficult times of COVID and so on, then, yes, she should maintain the Hajj and is required to go to hedge. If she does not have a Muslim, and she has the financial security, then it is not an obligation upon her. Especially in the time that we live in today with people you know, getting their flights canceled and so on. I would say that not just to women but also to men to be making sure that we are capable of carrying the journey of Hajj that we have the reserve savings in case we're stuck in a different country or unable to get a connecting

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

flight or whatever it may be. May Allah protect all of us, Allah

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Let me let me scroll through again see if there are any more questions.

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

Is it allowed to break Joomla alone at home?

00:25:10--> 00:25:53

salata Joomla, technically is an obligatory congressional prayer that were done that they established that it should pray, be prayed in a Salah in a masjid and Jama in the masjid that gathers people. In fact, in the olden days, they would close the small masala the small masajid so that everybody goes into the one central masjid so that the masjid would overflow and salata Juma would be prayed. So the essence of the salah is the gathering is a community is coming together, especially for our brothers in sha Allah for the sister if you are asking this about yourself, what you would pray is sought out to do at home in sha Allah, and if you're able to attend the Jamaat

00:25:53--> 00:26:10

because there is room and there is ability for you, then that is also welcomed but not an obligation insha Allah so those are some of the questions that I have before me if there any other questions in chat a lot do send them through, I look forward to receiving them in Ilahi to Allah.

00:26:18--> 00:27:00

We have a question from the sister about our discussion. Suna is understood through a hadith Yes, so it's built with the Hadith of the Prophet I sell them but individual hadith is not an individual understanding of the sooner rather than soon that is an understanding of the comprehensive nature of an issue. Sometimes there are people who will quote one Hadith, not understanding how it fits in context because they thought just because it's Hadith that has to be the sooner know that hadith has a place in the oral tradition. In the folklore tradition in the Hadith tradition of the prophets I seldom that gives it its place and gives it its understanding in sha Allah. If we are blessed and

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

are able to continue with this topic as we move forward today. Although we may be interrupted with other questions, this will become more clear the law hate to Allah.

00:27:12--> 00:27:16

Any other questions do send them through in sha Allah we got another minute before we go on

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

Masha Allah Tala Rahman

00:27:25--> 00:27:55

we have brothers sisters from Malaysia Mashallah. Where else? sha Allah. We have the Philippines and hamdulillah lots of our brothers and sisters here from Australia also with watching Allah subhanaw taala except from all of us. All right, still on the Hajj. Question. Final question Inshallah, before we go back to our live feed, I have the financial means to go to Hajj, but perhaps my uncle doesn't have should I pay

00:27:56--> 00:28:41

for him if I can. If you can, it is not an obligation for you to pay for him so that your 100 becomes an obligation. You are not obligated if your home does not have the means. But if you do so may Allah grant you the reward of double the Hajj, Allah. May Allah Subhana Allah open our hearts to that which is good, carry us forward to the pleasure that we seek of him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala take you to his blessings lands, that you are able to perform your hodgin Urmila be evening Anita Allah may Allah subhanho wa Taala write you a standing and all of us on the Mount of alpha, the plains of alpha where our sins are forgiven, our Da is answered and our Eman is re ignited.

00:28:42--> 00:28:49

In our relationship with Allah. We have just a couple of minutes left in sha Allah there any other questions please put them forward

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

any other questions in shot law please do put them forward.

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

Look forward to

00:29:12--> 00:29:36

taking them before we begin. Alright. Parents of children who say they've left Islam, who would not have the right to inherit can parents put a clause in their will to say if they are back to Islam they will inherit inherit? If not, they do not. Yes of course. This depends on where you are living in which land you are living in. If people are

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

have strayed from from faith, yes, they are not given through the Sharia and automatic inheritance. They can still be given something and sometimes it might be something that's given as a way of bringing them back to the Rockman of Islam. May Allah subhanaw taala make it so but it's not an automatic inheritance or the issues that relate to the Quran in the inheritance.

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

Something that confuses people. We look forward maybe to doing a talk on that one day evening night to Anna. I'm sorry I'm not able to take any more questions from

00:30:10--> 00:30:30

the social media streams. We're going to go back towards our session insha Allah with Islam channel. I look forward to engaging with you again next Wednesday evening. I'd like to add a shout out to those telling us they're from Mississauga a little not too far from where I am from in Toronto Canada along my Mondays

00:31:21--> 00:31:57

Well, salat wa salam O Allah say you didn't want something so easy now whenever you know what have you been out? Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim, ala Houma. I mean, we're going to continue with our discussion while we wait for our callers to queue up in chat law for our Islamic q&a on Islam channel. May Allah subhanaw taala bless our brothers and sisters who are operating this wonderful service for the OMA English speaking on love the prophets I send them I look forward in chatline engaging with you each and every Wednesday on this channel through these

00:31:57--> 00:32:01

00:32:03--> 00:32:33

we have been speaking about the sin of the prophesy sentiment we identify that there is a separation that links the Hadith of the prophets, I send them to the concept of understanding his path of life, it's not just one statement, but how it fits into the totality of his life sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the future, we'll talk about how that becomes a PAP that leads on a slot and will stop the alarm I mean, we have another caller on the line who said I'm Anakin caller How can I help

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

are they

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

just

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

for your beautiful

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

explanation of

00:32:45--> 00:32:51

previously just one question before you were explaining this about

00:32:52--> 00:32:54

dealing with simple expression, so the

00:32:56--> 00:32:56

nature

00:32:57--> 00:33:13

introspect around certain so now we consider them to be so for example, if I feel like most people after finishing salah they raise their hands and started some don't. So, what is the correct positioning? Some say

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

they say so,

00:33:20--> 00:33:41

after doing so, we are doing so in public something is not so bad something is okay to do. And there is always a discussion going on. So in this this span, would you encourage someone to do it or would you discourage someone that would be the best to take in public? Ala hematic feed does that a lot?

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

Yes, of course.

00:33:46--> 00:33:53

No, no, please, please do I've made note of your first question. Allah He better go ahead my brother. Okay. Right.

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

Next Next question is about

00:33:59--> 00:34:10

about age when people started to get a some people always seems to be finding it more and more difficult to continue with their

00:34:13--> 00:34:28

work worldly matters, they don't seems to be finding that difficult. So how they can motivate themselves to do their job better. That will be a question as well as an advice. Question.

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

Allah Heba Keke does I call her my dear brother, my dear uncle, may Allah subhanaw taala reward you and give you longevity upon the Sunnah of the prophets I send them we have evidence in the Sunnah of the prophets. I said to him that he would make to Allah He ordered us to make dua after Sadat. So on two separate occasions, the first both of them are narrated in the authentic hadith Wahhabi as also Muslim in different narrations. One of them is Sadat October, the Sunnah of Toba

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

traumatize them set them in. There isn't an individual a servant of God, I've never be them made exceed made a mistake did something wrong and they felt remorse in their heart that thought about and will do so that person they said I need to solve this problem. So they made will do and made a goodwill do they were careful with their will sundown on content that that person prays to rock out to Allah seeking Allah's forgiveness. And then after the saga asks Allah makes do I after their salah, some of their unimat they said after the Salah, meaning before this Alam other said after the setup, both of them is that they asked Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness, and they were they will

00:35:45--> 00:36:29

be forgiven, they also do i is the Hara. We know in evidence of the prophets of Allah, Who are you a settlement that when a person has a need, and he wants to make sure that the decision they have made is sanctioned by Allah, they pray to Raka and after after their sada they put the main their dua to Allah and they say Allah made me as the hero can barely make our stuff neurochemical, neurotic. And although the Hadith doesn't say that the Prophet says, raise your hands, this is assumed to be the pseudonym for this two, by all of the four methods that a person doing dry, hotter after this Allah, they are in a place where they have had you to Allah, a need to Allah, which means that if a person

00:36:29--> 00:37:03

has prayed, whether in Jamaica, whether they're being led in the DUA, or they're doing it themselves, whether it's the Imam or the moon, whether it's a person on their own, if a person has a need to turn to Allah in dua, at that moment, their need is fulfilling the sooner of making dua, after sada as an act of riba towards Allah subhanaw taala. Should we then ritualize it and say that the Salah is not accepted or is deficient or the Jama wasn't complete, unless the DUA is made? No,

00:37:04--> 00:37:48

that would be wrong. So if there's an understanding that a person has that unless the Imam makes by and everybody says, I mean, and everybody puts their hand that the Salah is not really as good as it should be, that something wasn't done right, that you know, something is wrong, then this is a false understanding. But that doesn't mean that we are not encouraged to do it when there is a need May Allah Subhana Allah help us in understanding that regard? Allah? I mean, number two, is your question about you know, finding the motivation, masha Allah, to continue to worship Allah with with vigor as we did when we were freer in time, wealthier, maybe healthier. And that's why the Prophet

00:37:48--> 00:38:33

said that wonderful Hadith that we all know there are two near Amma two blessings, that a person doesn't understand their importance until they're, they're gone. And of course, one of them is your you know, your free time and the other is health. Subhanallah when we're unwell, it's more difficult when we are busy, it's more difficult. So therefore, we should take advantage of it. But what I will say my dear brother, is sometimes we are focused on worshipping Allah in the same way we've always done and we don't learn newer ways we don't learn simpler ways that can earn us great reward. Let me give you an example from the wife of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, after she prayed so

00:38:33--> 00:39:18

that she stayed in the same place of her persona, on her same prayer area, and she was making vicar of Allah for hours, the Prophet left and came back so I sent him and he said, Lesley, you bring in the same place doing the same thing all the time. She said yes. So messenger of Allah, he said in me hold to our back and imagine telethon, Murat I said four statements three times. That gave me the same reward of all of the time and everything you said Subhan Allah will be handy. Either the holiday he was on FC he was enough to Archie why me dad that cadmatic Subhan Allah will be handed either the halter he was on FC he was in at the Odyssey he want me that the telematic Subhan Allah

00:39:18--> 00:39:55

will be handy either the hunter he was on FC was in ethology when we did the telematic that earned more than the reward of her sitting for hours. So what I will say is perhaps it's good to investigate newer different acts of worship, that can magnify our reward, that our intention is seeking the pleasure of Allah and begin to mix in sha Allah with newer actions that are from the Sunnah of the Prophet, I sell them that maybe we were unaware of previously. Love Miami. We have another caller on the line As salam o alaikum. Caller How can I help

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

If

00:40:01--> 00:40:08

Allah hematic Vico My dear brother up but it's a pleasure to receive your call once again, Allah reward you Allah. I mean

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

maybe two questions.

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

Brother, when somebody is asking a question and beyond

00:40:17--> 00:40:30

anything I think I think, you know, you know, but you had to do this thing but I think when you say I think and I think and I don't know, I'm just assuming according to my own you know.

00:40:32--> 00:40:33

So I wanted to

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

know what you advise you know, going into situation and the second question about

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

you know, the

00:40:43--> 00:40:45

tools and the you know, please

00:40:47--> 00:40:49

pinion Subhan Allah

00:40:51--> 00:40:57

when the 22 century 22,022 right now about them too much

00:40:59--> 00:41:04

on the island to be on one on Twitter to be on YouTube

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

what do you think about when

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

and when

00:41:16--> 00:41:18

Allah hematic people just like Allah

00:41:20--> 00:42:04

may Allah subhanaw taala join us all in good Allah Amin Wonderful question just like Allah on the Hydra does that it Imam Ahmed, one of the great Imams of the four schools of thought amongst us as Sunni Muslims. He is a person who was rarely heard or recorded to say something is haram. And when they would ask, you know, you know, is this halal or haram? He would say, Accra who Delic? I hate for this to happen. How are you? I don't have a do people do something like this, and lay in bed he this should never be approached law, you know, this shouldn't be done. Don't go near it. He would use these kinds of words, rather than saying the word haram because the word Haram is a major word

00:42:04--> 00:42:14

in the sight of Allah. In fact, in our studies as Muslims, as a part of our belief as Muslims, it is better to make a mistake in

00:42:15--> 00:42:35

assuming something is halal that could be haram, than to say something is haram. That could be Helen leftarrow, Allah hilker They, sometimes people they are speaking about Allah speaking on behalf of Allah in a way that Allah did not sanction. And that is a major, major thing. Allah Subhana Allah says,

00:42:36--> 00:43:20

you have to remove a hell Allah Allah that a category of the sinful are those who make haram what Allah has made halal, So may Allah protect us from this Allah? I mean, there are those who are on the other spectrum on the other side, who everything is halal just because it feels right. looks right. Smells right. I saw somebody else doing it. So it has to be okay. The assumption, of course, is that in the world, everything is halal for us when evidence is not found to prove It's haram. But that doesn't mean we blind ourselves to the knowledge that this is right and this is wrong. And that's the secret of the DUA, we make it Zoltan Fatiha Dino serata Musa team lead us to the straight

00:43:20--> 00:44:10

path what is the straight path Sirata Latina and I'm telling the path whom you favored before us. We want to do the good things people before us did lie he really must do ballet. Don't let us be like those who were angering to you. Who are those I am Lana to Allah. I lay him on Baba, I lay upon them with the wrath and the anger of Allah. They are those who knew what was right and chose what was wrong. And those who knew what was wrong and made it right. The second one of board lead those who are misguided, meaning those who in their heart is doubt is this right and wrong. But they intentionally avoid clarifying right from wrong good from bad halal or haram. Just so that they are

00:44:10--> 00:44:54

not under any sanction. They just want to have a good time they just want to do whatever they want. Both of them are those we ask Allah to protect us from being like them Allah I mean, with your second question, my dear brother, how about the scholars of Islam? May Allah Subhana Allah grant us those who are rude Mr. Rossi, Hoon, affiliating who are established upon knowledge from the Kivar from those who are mature in that wisdom. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from Zen, Zen little island, the slips of their own a map which can destroy nations and people and change societies. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah protect our roadmap for you. We know that the Day of Judgment arrives, the

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

updated roadmap as the scholars dwindle in number than we know that the time

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

Time and the End of Times is growing nearer, as is prophesized by the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Their own a man are those who practice what they know. And they are those who are recognized for their practice and for their knowledge by other older man who practice what they know, and are teaching the truth upon the way of the prophets. I seldom really map it's not by accreditation or university status or PhDs alone, that qualification aspect is significantly important, but also the uprightness of their approach. May Allah protect us from the hola map, who are people who grovel at the halls of power, who seek to change the religion of Allah to suit the

00:45:46--> 00:46:32

times or to suit the sensibilities of those who are bankrolling and assisting them with luxuries and other things. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the separation between the people of truth from the people of falsehood clear Allahumma me, but recognize that the prophets I send them said, letter their luta if at an automatic car in Buena Island, help, liable rowhome Men kundala home, that there will always be a group amongst my alma odema knowledgeable people in the form of the prophets I send them that will not be humiliated will not be aggrieved by those who seek to disgrace them, they will always be established upon the truth, and they will be known. Perhaps they're not on social media.

00:46:32--> 00:47:07

And there is a lot of good that we seek to put out there for people to consume. But sometimes it's a difficult environment to navigate. It's something that you know, we fear Subhanallah it's, it's something that we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to allow us to chase knowledge, not to seek knowledge to chase us or to find it. A limb is found with the Roma, Roma are not the ones who will come out seeking to chase us if we seek it. We will find it may Allah make us of them. Allahumma Amin, we have another caller on the line as salaam alaikum. Caller How can I help

00:47:09--> 00:47:12

Malik Mr. Lambert, I have to Yes.

00:47:16--> 00:47:23

I am suffering along with regards to my concentration in my brother. And sometimes it gets better.

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

I've tried many things

00:47:29--> 00:47:30

that I'm not happy with my

00:47:35--> 00:47:36

advice is to

00:47:38--> 00:47:41

three times in my shoulder, the shutdown.

00:47:43--> 00:47:46

Really less focus. And my second question is

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

I was invited

00:47:51--> 00:47:52

in Santa

00:47:59--> 00:48:03

Monica, in Britain, now I've been advised that

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

all the

00:48:07--> 00:48:11

Correct, correct. They're not important.

00:48:13--> 00:48:54

Allah hematic Viki does Allah here for your question, my dear sister, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant you the reward of your knee for wanting to perfect your Salah May Allah Subhana Allah assists all of us in that regard and help us to overcome the the disasters of our soul and the disasters of our misbehaviors that lead us away from solar. So one of the things that I will say to you, my dear sister, is the knee of wanting to improve Salah is already improving your Salah, and may Allah subhanaw taala make this a gift for you. But you can see in your soul that after Salah till delivery that you pray it's about to the US is better. So the second thing is to ask Allah to make ourselves

00:48:54--> 00:49:39

that better. And that's prophets I seldom used to make the DUA, Allah him and now the cricket or should Cricket was antibiotic. Oh Allah help us to become more men remembering of you, more thankful of you and to worship you better than we are worshiping you. It is an unending pursuit the angels they used to they are recorded by Allah in the Quran as saying, Robin avid NACA, how charismatic, Oh Allah, we haven't worshiped you in the way that you are worthy and deserving of all of us. Our prayer could be improved. All of us, every single one of us, every single one of us, our prayer just now could be better than what it was. And therefore the aim of making our prayer better is actually

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

making our prayer better. Allah Amin, so I wanted to share with you some strategies that could assist you in sha Allah in helping myself in you improve in our concentration in sala in being practical in that approach, maybe some tips that Solek and then

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

become more meaningful. So the first thing that I will say to you, sister, I actually

00:50:06--> 00:50:29

have a program, an online program that talks about solar. And you know, it's a little bit of saying it's, you know, something that could be inspirational in reading a little bit more about how I can be better. So do research at do read, for other people's writings, other people's promotions, in how to do that. So search for more, not just the answers that are provided Now,

00:50:30--> 00:51:10

first thing, do your best with your will do, because your will do is the gateway to solid. And it's almost like, oh, you know, I want to have a good meeting, a good business meeting. So what do people do, they make sure they were, you know, I just happen to wear a nice suit today, you know, from after work and so on. You wear something that you're comfortable with, you want to make sure that you're with you know, that you're, you're presented well, right, because it makes it more difficult if you don't think you're presented well to speak to people who are in authority. Now, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is the one you're going to present yourself to. So it only behooves us to present

00:51:10--> 00:51:49

ourselves well make a good will to make our concentration in it. Something significant, and that's as soon as the props I sell them, you're going to do is to hot up make a good widow, you're going to do salata, Toba make a good will do before the prayer. Number two, learn the meaning of the short sutras. And that's what I was saying. I have a program called the sutras we read most often you can find it in sha Allah just listening to it on YouTube, the meaning of some of the sources that are habitual polyaxial capital and kolu Allah had the inner meanings of them that can help you give and hone your focus in your soulapp the most important surah is connect with Surah Al Fatiha connect

00:51:49--> 00:52:34

with its meaning connect with its message that when you say yeah can Abu only you Allah do I worship mean it from your heart mean on your tongue? Let your life demonstrated where Yeah, can I stay in? I only asked of things of you Oh Allah, I'm in my sujood now Yeah, Allah I ordered I said to myself, I will only worship Allah and I asked only you now Yeah, Allah. Oh Allah I need this help this cure this heal this. Forgive this for me, oh Allah. Offer your Salah and Sala in the early time. So make it something where it's like you are waiting for a solid to come. So you're anticipating it. That's another powerful technique that has been a benefit to me in in different points in my life.

00:52:35--> 00:53:23

Do the suddenness before the solar because it's almost like stretching and getting yourself ready for the physical activity right? You know before you go to a sports competition you will see the athletes they stretch they have a little bit of a you know they warm up. Why because it gets you ready for the right thing that you need to do. So warm up with the suit now warm up with the salah between Adelina comma warm up by making the ad that even if you're alone making a comment even you are alone in chat Allah always try to offer your slug out in a way that is complete in its sense, you know concentrate in your account and I was happy with your second question which I add to this

00:53:23--> 00:54:04

first where you were taught Subhanak you know, so boo Han could do so rockwool Mullah, he will have to say it in your record and in your To Do It is a sooner of the privatize element. There are other things that you can say. So trying to learn different, you know, after tech via the prophets on times, you know, the beautiful Hadith, the Prophet said the one who says Allahu Akbar, and says Allahu Akbar battle Kabira when Hamdulillah he Kathira wa Subhana Allah He bukata wa sila, the prophets I seldom said I saw the angels hurrying with its reward up to Jenna May Allah makers of them, Allah who I mean, may Allah accept from all of us, or suddenly level Mo was selling was it was

00:54:04--> 00:54:12

barik ala Sayidina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I look forward to seeing you next week in sha Allah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
