And as the days go on a lot from me. And I'm also kind of want to add a show mercy and forgiveness to our parents. May Allah send light upon those who have passed away. And may Allah give healing and Cefa strength to those who are with us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala honor us with the teaching of our heavy Mohammed. So I said that we are mentored along this path that we walk upon his sunnah and that we become from those who are pleasing to Allah as a virgin in our
privacy more so than we seek to show each other publicly a lot. I mean, this is a live phone in culture. And I do look forward to receiving your live on air calls through Islamic channel. And I pray that Allah subhana wa Tada gives high yield on baraka to all of those of Islam channel who have worked together to allow us this honor and privilege to share a little bit of charity upon each other in you asking questions, and in sha Allah, us finding solutions, but they led me to Anna, there are a number of questions that have already come in through the written WhatsApp services and the emails. And I hope in sha Allah that Allah can give us strength in resolving them and that they
can be a source of blessing for those who hear them not just who spoken along them. I mean, the first question that I have before me
is an interesting question, masha Allah is an interesting question, Masha, Allah, what is a woman's covering inside her home? From Muharram people such as her father, her brother, her father in law, her mother in law, other women in the household? And are all women considered Muharram to each other? What if one of them is not known for good character? Or what if one of them is not Muslim, and doesn't know our manners as Muslims and our etiquettes as Muslims?
It's an interesting question. So
um hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam, O Allah, who it was seldom well that I think it's important to kind of understand that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has determined for us what is best suited for our fifth draw for our innate inclined nature as human beings. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who in Scripture in law, not just within our Muslim texts, but in all of the Abrahamic faiths, in all of the faith that called to monotheism and purity, that there was a call for us to adorn ourselves and protect ourselves and beautify ourselves and shelter our beauty from others or from those who was not necessary to share it with Allah Subhana Allah Allah has made
specific things that are a must, they are cold out there are things that are a must to be covered for men, and certain things that are must to be covered for women. Men, that which must be covered for them is everything that is above the navel just above the navel to below the knees. Some brothers they kind of take this lightly. So for example, to show your upper thigh
It is equal in our law for a woman to show her neck or a part of her cleavage. That's the seriousness within our Sharia that is established. Now, of course, a lot of brothers, they kind of don't understand the filter and the necessity of that, in that sense. And therefore it is something that we should pay attention to the evening that into Adam, with regards to women's attire, when they are in, in a place that is Muharram. To them a place where they find an inner sanctum, they are also able to be of those who show parts of their body that is above their navel and below their knee, which means that, you know, somebody can breastfeed, for example, her child in front of her
father in front of her father in law, this is considered permissible within our faith. It does not necessarily mean of course, that one remains uncovered. What we're speaking about is what can be uncovered when there is need or necessity.
The general understanding that the people of sunnah have is that we honor ourselves when we beautify ourselves with clothing of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's not known that he was a person who removed clothing off himself unnecessarily. So the favored clothing of the prophesy centum was for me is I'm wearing an upcoming as witches, you know, today we refer to as a Juba, which is a sewn knit garment. Now at that time of the province IS LM there was a lot of poverty so that used to wear what was like the Haram is out and we that a table a cloth at the top and a waste cloth, you know, like a loon ghee, or maca, Louise's the Somalis would say
something is wrong for the Malaysians and Indonesians something you just wrap around the bottom and like haram that we were in Hajj and arugula, so that was the normal clothing for most people, but those who could afford it. And those who had the ability, they wore alchemise, a sewn garment that covered there, tuck their chest, the shoulders down. And that was the same for women. So the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam demonstrates that fact. So for a Muslim woman, who is amongst her inner sanctum with people who are allowed to be a part of her privacy, where it's at a lower threshold, than it is those who are listed for us in salt. And DISA also in Surah, Noor also sort of
zap that gives those conditions putting the modality of putting them in upside the hidden now I have forgotten apologia whom there Lika Edna er of Neff, Allah you then according to the end of the verse in sha Allah in sort of the exam, can a Muslim woman uncover instead of a Muslim woman who is known to speak about others? The answer is no. So if there is somebody in it could be even your own cousin, who is known to you know, describe, oh, my god, she has gorgeous hair, her hair is this color. And you're like, hey, you shouldn't be talking about somebody who has chosen to cover themselves in that way to describe it to other people, oh, well, they can't see or I'm just talking
about it. Somebody is known to be descriptive, or taking photos of others or, you know, isn't, you know, isn't cognizant of the important and that includes non Muslim women. And that's where that ruling for non Muslim women who may not know our laws, they were like, Oh, she has gorgeous hair, she's got, you know, strict, or whatever it may be, therefore, you should cover in front of them, where until they become of those who understand the gravity of it. But in general, it is you are able to show, you know, your chest or your shoulders and things like that when there's there's a need. There's another question that just come in. Can someone say, I'm always going to wear the
hijab? My home? Because it's better than I'd rather be extra conservative? And the answer really, is no, we don't know that. From the wives of the prophets. I said that we don't know that from people who had more Taqwa than us that they covered themselves all the time, even when they were in the company of their husband or their own parents. This isn't something that was known from the people of the past. And it is not something that is encouraged. Some people would even say that this is a heresy. If one is doing it and claiming that this is better as an act of worship and devotion. May Allah protect us along that I mean, another question has come in, and this one's a little bit
longer, but I think it's important to break it up. There's a number of questions in it. If someone once again it's about the inlaws once again, it's about the macro.
If someone maintains their duties to their in laws, and often may fall into argument or into seeing or maybe be seen as being disrespectful towards them, out of not wanting to, it's not that I'm going out of my way to do it, but it's seen that way or I made a mistake in that way, or not being able to control my anger. And when I when things get heated or something is blamed that that wasn't a reality. However, there's another sister in law, who keeps their distance and neglect their duties has no responsibilities towards their own in laws. So basically, you know, somebody's saying, I'm doing the best that I can with my in laws, I'm trying to serve them and look after them and, and
help them. But at the same time, I have my sister in law on the other side, she's not doing any of those duties, is it which is more favorable for me who at times will get you know, fall into error by maybe showing some dissatisfaction or disrespect or someone who's totally ignored them in their entirely. The first has sacrificed a lot and fears losing their asset or because of some of their mistakes, and wants to stay in good record with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, while the other has completely detach, what is more favorable, should I detach as well? Some kind of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is a rock man, sometimes we are more critical of ourselves, then a lot would be
critical of us as a Virginian. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah knows our intentions. So one of the things that I would say to my dear sister or brother in this situation, is whenever you find yourself, doing something that is challenging in serving others, or in assisting others are working with others, set your intent that this is for Allah. And if you make it for Allah, whether it is well received by others or not, whether you did it to the best of your ability or not, that if your intention was pleasing Allah and you executed it as best as you could as, as per your humanity as per your mistakes as per your fault as per your foibles and, and inconsistencies. Know that Allah
Subhana Allah to Allah does not only reward us for the intention, but Allah does not reward us just about outcomes. Allah is not going to reward us and say they were happy with you. So I'm going to be happy with you that I'm going to be pleased with you. Sometimes there are people who are difficult to please and just by you making the attempt to please them that everybody else backs away. They're elderly, they're grumpy, I'm not going to deal with it. Oh, she's doing fine. Why should I get involved? I don't need that headache. You know, for you to step forward. It is better let me share with you a wonderful hadith of Abba Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the Prophet iclm said, method
will lead you hardly to NAS
were to happen to other hyaluron, Angola. The one example of the one who endeavors to mix with people and by necessity with mixing with others, they have to bear the burden patiently of what that will necessitate. There's going to be misunderstandings and anger and all these different things are going to happen. The one who goes out and mixes with people who gets involved with their in laws in their community, and has to bear the burden of the hardship they will put on them is more favorable with Allah is more beloved to Allah than the one who is erect loose, and the one who is a hermit and sits on their own and does not take on the burden of mixing with others. So the answer is clear, my
dear sister, do the best you can set your Nia with Allah, Don't exert yourself beyond what you are able to do. Give your trust to Allah make the one who you seek to please is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and forgive those who at times, especially when they are older, especially when there's misunderstandings, especially when there's heated arguments, give yourself the ability to forgive them, but more importantly, be very introspective and forgiving of yourself. As a general rule, we are a lot tougher on ourselves with a certain things that Allah demands of us and we are a lot more lacs with ourselves with other things that Allah does demand of us. This is something may Allah
subhanaw taala open your heart to success continue on in that which is pleasing to Him along me. Another question has come in. I have work in a hospital and I have my will do and I'm asked to attend to a patient let's say from maternity, and I have to do an examination. In a vaginal examination. I have to wear gloves. Now will that change my will loot status or will I have to take a shower from being juniper? Or is my will do still okay? So it's important for us to I guess, identify this question why
What are the things that break will do.
And I want this to be something that, you know, you kind of understand that, that we have a very finite way of looking at what is
what are the things that break our will. So the first of them is anything that exits our body, from our private areas, it doesn't matter what it is. So, any liquid or any solid or any gas, that exits from a human beings body from their private area is going to break your will do so whether that is urine or defecation, flatulence,
whether that's bleeding, anything of that nature is going to break although number two is conscious awareness of your surroundings and yourself. So any sleep, any coma, any fainting, any unwellness, any fit anything that causes you to not have command of your dimensions and where you are, and that you lose contact with your wakeful state breaks your will do that includes sleep, deep sleep, or you know, even if it's light sleep, but you you know, you were not aware of where of your surroundings, that also breaks we'll do. The fourth category are things that are involuntary to us that are a part of our human system. So things like our sisters, they will have menstrual bleeding in certain times
of the month, they may have postpartum after birth, bleeding, all of that is something that will break their will do and will break their ability to perform. The act of a battle of prayer in particular, finally, is the state of heart and mind as it relates to sexual attraction. So once a person has become sexually inclined, and that is through intentions of the heart or thought it's through physical touch, through caressing or kissing one spouse, once a person has become sexually excited to a degree, that it has resulted in a reaction within themselves in that state, then it is recommended for them to have a will do if they continue with complete sexual intercourse
intercourse, then they are required to have a host. So the things that break will do the things that nullify will do are anything that exits a private part solid, liquid gas, anything that is an emission of the body. That is of an excessive nature,
such as vomit, or blood that is very that is considered fat, which is questionable ones that are on the map, but walk included in this category out of caution. Anything that exists that causes one to lose their awareness, sleep, fainting, Fitz, anything of that nature, all of that causes ones will do
to be broken. And anything that relates to our sexual attention to our spouse or others, causes us to also lose our will do May Allah protect us alone. I mean, so in this instance, for this particular case,
as a medical practitioner, there is no sexual gratification. This is an applied action that you're doing. This does not cancel out your will do.
Well, if that had happened, what happened to be lucky? Other than that, is an interesting question. From a medical standpoint. Can we wear sunglasses while we may pull off? And the answer is yes. And that's where men and women, what you are not allowed to wear is to wear something at the top of your crown. And the purpose for that is that you are uncovering in yourself your humility towards a lot. You don't, even until today when somebody enters into a courtroom after remove their hat, you're required to, you know, show that deference and humility equally in our evaluator for us as Muslims we go with our heads
uncovered standing before Allah humbled before him Subhana Allah sunglasses or eyeglasses have the same ruling as an act of necessity to you know, protect us from the sun. This isn't something that should be a problem in sha Allah. If it is simply prevented it, then it's questionable among some of the lemma. If it is just a fashion either
Have No one is trying to distinguish themselves from others, that there is no sun, there is no need for them to be wearing their sunglasses, they just want, I guess to represent themselves as being regal or elite, then that intention of wearing it is the problem, and not the sunglasses itself in sha Allah. Nevertheless, it is permissible in the land to Allah. Is it permissible for the bride to attend her wedding ceremony in public?
So that's kind of a question where it's very general, I don't understand what you mean by wedding ceremony? And they don't understand what you mean by public. So is it the cat in the masjid? Or is it I'm going to dance in front of people at a wedding hall? If it's the latter, you're going to dance in front of people at the wedding hall that is unacceptable, that is not within our tradition as Muslims, if you're going to be amongst your fellow sisters, and you're going to enjoy the time that you spent together again, then, you know, that's a very different discussion, to the general question, in that sense, inshallah. So what I would say is that a bride on her wedding day,
that she shouldn't have a place in a standing shot Allah, we have a caller on the line as salaam alaikum, warahmatullahi, wabarakatuh. Caller, how can I help?
I have a question. Yes.
Who is on CPAP? Because I suffer from sleep apnea. And this machine
air down my throat.
Just to prevent me from
when you have the passivity, yes,
I'm aware of it sister.
unfortunately, I get to build a ball
ad throughout the day, unfortunately, always wins. So my question is, does that invalidate my work?
it would depend on the frequency of it. So what I would say to you, Sr, is that as you're about to get ready for your prayer, renew your will do right before salah. And if this is a medical condition, where in your Salah, even in the short three to five minutes that your prayer will take you involuntarily are going to release gas, then it would have the same ruling that we already have in the time of the prophets I send them there were some women who had incontinence and the prophets I said Are they had is to hell that they had a natural bleed. So the Prophet said wash yourself make will do begin your prayer. And don't worry about what happens during the prayer as long as you begin
your prayer with it. If it is a genuine medical condition in sha Allah, your prayers are valid the evening later, Anna, but certainly set a good intention and a good will do right before the salah. Begin your prayer with that. And if it does break through flatulence, you know, involuntarily you're unable to hold on to it because of this machine. And because it's a life saving device, then don't worry about that your saw that the law he said will be valid in sha
Allah, Allah hear about it. It's my pleasure because I love it. And may Allah Subhana Allah give you healing, and do not
ever underestimate the majesty of the mercy and that expensive compassion of ALLAH SubhanA wa. Tiana, does that come up here? It's a very good question. And I appreciate it a lucky Vedic Viki.
We have another question that has come in, is it permissible to bow to an elder to show respect, there's a difference between being commanded to bow to them. And that one, you know, honor that, you know, bows down in that sense. So, the concept of ruku as an act of worship is haram for anyone other than Allah. Some of the odema have restricted it even as a sign of respect. The majority though will hold that there is a variance in what is seen as being condemned double from what is seen as being tolerable and accepted. So a nod of the head or bending a little bit or hand on your chest or a scenario on a common you know, you acknowledge that is not seen as being
a contrary to the spirit of our faith. However, for somebody if you enter if they enter the room, you're expected to make Gurukula
and to maintain it until they sit down or until they've walked by,
as a sign of not just respect of deifying them in that sense, then that's something that is not acceptable for us, as Muslims in sha Allah, we have the famous story of some of the Sahaba when they entered the tents of some of the ruling kings of the enemy forces, you know, they they were they had put the bar to enter the tent low to force them to bend down as they came before the king because the king knows they're not going to bow down to it. So they said put the bar down, it'll force them that they bow down. So they actually want any turd with their axe, I bow down, looking away from the King. That's how, you know serious that issue is even if it is about respect, if it is seen as you
are being, you know, forced and obligated to do it for an authority that is contending with Allah that is seeking to vie with Allah that is obligating you in the way that only Allah should, then there is a resistance to that inshallah we have just the last few seconds before our first break, and I hope Ajala that we will get a few more callers and a few more questions coming in the evening like Diana, I pray that Allah subhanaw taala grant your failure on Baraka success along mean that Allah subhanaw taala continues to allow us to come in together in his worship seeking His pleasure, the evening later Allah Subhana Allah from over heaven decrescendo, either had to suffer too late.
Join me after a few minutes and that in the prayers in sha Allah, you really have Rahim Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Zach would love it. I said, Imani for those of you who are on my social media streams, and hamdulillah I'm happy to kind of look through and take some of the questions that you may have now, in sha Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala grant has played on Baraka, Allah whom I mean. All right, let's look through
some of the questions where would you recommend for someone to start with regards to Islamic Studies Okay, sister, sorry, you're in luck, Mashallah. I'm going to promote shamelessly promote my Yahoo abraham.com online school. So go to Yahoo abraham.com forward slash school or just Yeah, hi brian.com you'll see a pop up there for you. And I highly encourage you and you know, anybody who's new to Islam or young or those who are mashallah, there's something for everyone. So there's season one, season two and inshallah season three is coming out very, very soon the need to either so that's where I would recommend that you go in sha Allah it's a comprehensive program, it begins
season one you will find great benefit in it the learning to Ana
mashallah, we have a sister who's got her Nursing exam tomorrow about loss of kind of Attalla Grinch of fate and baraka and success Allahumma Amin I love my saleha Rob along with acetylate Illa Murgia Altia who Salah All right any other questions on my Instagram send them through in sha Allah I'll look through YouTube and Facebook shortly
Okay, does does the QA only need to be given to Muslims? No, but the QA is prioritized for those who are Muslims. But it there is the valid opinion that where there is excess it will go to whoever is in dire need insha Allah but there is the prioritization of those who are within our community within our family and so on in sha Allah
What is the correct way of praying with rissalah?
So with Rosada is prayed by the prophets I send them in different ways. But one of the ways that the prophets of Isaiah
them with price a lot of winter is that you would pray three or this is the norm he would pray three Raka and not sit in the middle 123 No sitting in the middle. And in the final one, he would then make his set up. Another way that he would pray with it is that he would pray to say As salam o aleikum, wa Salam aleykum, and then one on its own one on its own, right. Another way that prophet would pray with me would pray to sit to sit and say Salaam and then pray one on its own. Some of that will ally yourself. Those are all known from our NABI Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him or they have doubled our time with this limb. However, what is common for many people is to pray
with as if they are praying Maghreb. This is seen in one Hadith of the Prophet I sell them as something that he disliked or there is discussion about the authenticity of the Hadith in one particular school of thought they hold that there the hadith is is not authentic and that's why they don't use it the majority opinion do use it that they will pray to say salaam that one I think that is closer to the truth. Well, Allah Who to add Adam
Smith, yes, the question is, is there face to face sessions there are face to face sessions with it. All right, we have a question Is it compulsory for women to cover their feet during prayer? The majority opinion is the top of the feet. So in the method only mount Akhmad Imam Malik Imam Shafi, the top of the feet should be covered. The only opinion is the mental boville Imam Abu Hanifa. They don't see the top of the feet as being necessary to be covered. But they see it as being desirable to be covered. So a woman should cover the top of her feet and so that due to the hadith of Muslim or the Allah and half the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Prophet said
they don't need to wear socks, but they should wear their cloak or their you know, their dress, let it hang and cover the top of their feet. Mooji one of my former students, masha Allah, may Allah bless him. Chase, I have a question in regards to what does Allah say about people of the book, and what happens to them in the hereafter? That's a very long question. In a short period of time, it's not just about people, the book or others, there are three types of people on the Day of Judgment, those who understood the command of God and followed it, they are believers, then there are those who are the opposite. And they are those who understood the command of God and rebelled against it,
buried it under doubt and under desires that said, I'm going to do whatever I want to do. Those are the two funny harmful agenda, if any of them say you, in the middle of them are those who are referred to as an mushiya. The people under the will of Allah the knowledge of Allah, they're those who lived life, that the message has reached them in whatever capacity known to Allah that they will be judged on it. In the large bulk of them are people who can be Christian can be Muslim can be living in, in places where they not heard the message. They may have heard of Mohammed heard of something called Quran, but they were not shared that they were not delivered the message, they are
under the will and the power of Allah Subhana Allah to Adam, and there's a number of different Hadith as to what will happen to them. This includes people who are young children, even young children of Muslims, who Allah, Allahu Allah, you know, I shot with the Allah I know the wife of the Prophet alayhi salam, there was a young child in Medina, a child of the Sahaba, who passed away and she said it was full. Don't forget, Matthew will be a young bird in Japan. You know, she had this beautiful intuition, the peroxisomal and said la they have perhaps something other than that. She said, how can it be a messenger of Allah, he's a young child who died in his infancy in his young
age, you know, he hasn't committed any sins. The prophets I send them said, Allah knows the eventualities of their life and they will be tested on the day of judgment as to how their life would have unraveled so we leave that specific specifically specific Miss to Allah subhanaw taala they are under the will of Allah, those who Allah knows are worthy of getting that will be Jana, those who are worthy of not will not be one that cannot Rob Buka and your lords who kind of went to Allah
lays everyone live in the lobby is not one who will oppress or wrong, his creation and a servant. We have a question can you pay your car in installments within a year? I don't want to give a general answer to something so specific. So it depends on the type of zakat that you're giving. If it's on gold, if it you know if there what's the reason for that? Are you pre paying it in installment or are you backdating the installments?
So there's a difference between saying, at the end of this year, I'm going to have to pay $5,000 A cat. And I, you know, I'm already setting up an installment plan towards it, or DACA is already do in that sense. And now I'm behind one year or two years, and I can't pay it all off together. So I'm just going to pay chunks and pieces. So I don't want to give a general answer to that question. I would refer you to somebody who would local to you or if you could send me a direct message, and then I'll clarify it with you just so that I don't send you down the wrong road. Needless to add it, I do need to be extra careful with those kinds of questions. It's a massive obligation. Can I pray
while wearing niqab as I am at uni? Can I put my hijab off in girls hostel
that has a camera
it's um, you know, may Allah Subhana Allah grant you ease. So wearing your niqab at university during prayer, generally speaking, unless you see that somebody who is just you know, just what, you know, just watching you. If you're in the prayer room or few in the library, if you've taken a place where you're away from others, you should not bail your face or your hands in prayer. That's a general rule given to us by the prophesy Selim. But if there's an extenuating, extreme circumstance, then yes.
Can I put my hijab off in a girls hostel that has a camera, so be mindful of the camera, but certainly, yes, I think you would be too I wouldn't want to, you know, burden you with that
to a greater degree. So just be mindful where the camera is. And, you know, be Be careful that insha Allah
if we join a congregation, and they're on their last record for method of how do we continue to more to her yet or just one so if you if you catch the last breath and relax rock solid method,
then you stand up, pray one rocker and sit to make it to then sit in the middle. So that will be your middle seating. Then stand up and pray one rock out on its own. And therefore you have completed the three rock of solid metal insha Allah
I can I put my hijab off in the hustle that has cameras it's surveilled only by women, but still it will be recorded at no if it's surveilled by women. And this is something where they understand that there are you know, I can't imagine that they would be filming
women without license and without permission in that sense. So if it is surveilled by women and if they have taken that precaution, then it should be acceptable in sha Allah, just be careful with it. Don't go beyond your secondary job. So don't show any other aspects of your body that you are not comfortable with in sha Allah.
Please make up for my dad. He's very ill May Allah Subhana Allah Allah uplift him and give him a healing a lot of the nursing Betsy issue and the Sharpie to lay your head off on HIV and what it is really his you know Sakana me Allah subhanho wa Taala Grantham a healing Allah from mean that mitochondria are haemoglobin

And it includes countries with different steps. Is that something you'd recommend?
So, is this a study for an ad that is
the study Quran of
sorry, I'm just trying to remember the Dr. Joseph Lampard and a few contribute to it, yes. So, I do have a copy of that it is beneficial. However, it is not a study the study Quran that should be read independently. And the reason for that is there are some problematic analysis that are left vague, meaning that the the translators and the compilers have it, they brought together from different sources, different study points. And the concept behind it is that it is a study Quran, it is not meant to be a Quran that just you read independently to get the right picture. So what I would say is, if you are going to use that, then it has to be a guided reading. And it has to be a guided
reading that protects you from personality prone
from some of the thoughts that kind of
simplify some of our issues as Muslims, there is some pandemic perennial statements in it that seem to equate between faithful and unfaithful people. There are issues that relate to some of the concept of of job that you know, it doesn't matter what you do, as long as there's some belief in your heart, you can do whatever you want, and leave in whatever excess those kinds of Stranger interpretations are left without rebuttal. So, they do need to be it does need to be a guided reading with others. However, the translations that are provided and some of the sources that are in it, are is of impeccable penmanship and workmanship, the language is easy to use. It is a thorough
document, but it is not for a beginner. It is not for somebody to just pick up and run with on their own. And I would say the same for somebody who wants to pick up a copy of Sahil Bihari translated you know, just pick it up and I'm going to follow saw him body it needs to be a guided reading. So empathy is one of the last books that is studied as a canon of our faith. So that would be the caveat that I have there is much benefit that can be found in it, but it must be a guided reading by a skilled teacher who is aware of those intricacies May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant how you and bottlecap Allah hum me All right, we have a few questions also that have come in Canada Muslim,
Canada person Kenya Muslim sister read the Quran
can a Muslim sister read the Quran if they do not have will do so that's the first question. So can a Muslim read the Quran? There's others that relate to the menstrual cycle and so on. All right, can I Okay, we have another caller we'll take that caller and then come back to that question shoulda said I want I can call her How can I help?
I think that's it. And I thought the answers, let you know about the distance about
how to start reading them.
But I was not sure about the time duration, for example, if I'm going to my own life.
And my relatives,
first thing would be like know, for example, if I go to holiday, like so
bad, obviously not my hometown or not. But for example, if I go to Pakistan, like so, and I said,
so is that still applicable only to the mother?
For how many days maximum? or minimum? You can do that? All right, just a couple fair? It's a wonderful question. And it's important for other people as well. So I'm going to make it really simple for you, my dear sister, the there are two questions that you will always ask yourself. So the first question is, am I still traveling? So once you've arrived back and you're in your mother's home, do you consider yourself a stranger? Is it something where you are? You know, still in that state of travel? If the answer is no, then don't do your customer. And joining the prayers are shortening the prayers? Because now you've arrived home so that you can answer that question for
yourself, and it'll change some people, you know, I might be visiting my brother's home, and I might travel that way. But it's not my home, I don't have a room in it. It's not seen as my home. So I'm still a visitor, I would consider myself a visitor in that sense, even though might be my brother might be my uncle, or might be whoever, irrespective of the difference? That's the first question. The second question is not necessarily about the distance or the duration. The question is,
in your arrival there, do you consider yourself a traveler or having not just if it's my mom or not, it could be even if you're in a work periods, so just say some people they work two weeks on and two weeks off, they have go to a mind site, or they have a two week conference somewhere. And they've arrived that place. So now they have a place it's set up for them, this is your place, this is your key is that considered your home, some of the older maps, they hold it, that what is considered your home is something that you have a regular tenancy in, or that you own it, even if you don't live in it. Some of us we own a property overseas. When I go back, it's my home. I'm a stranger on a
tourist, I'm only there for two weeks, or for three days or for one month, but the home is owned by me. So that's the second question. Are you a traveler irrespective of who you are staying with? And if you are staying with people who you are with, not just because it's your mom, if you consider yourself a traveler, then yes, you can make your customer Yes, you can shorten your prayer. While you're in the journey. Now that you've arrived, you can join the prayers but not shorten that, inshallah.
The men that have of course, they have a variety of opinions about shortening the prayer and so on. All of them are a reflection of the Sunnah. I'm not going to say the method member Hanifa says this, and Malik says this, all of those opinions will be valid to you in one way or another. Let's get to that question that was asked earlier. Can a Muslim woman read the Quran? If she is in her menstrual cycle? Can a Muslim woman at Cana person read it? If they are not in we'll do let's enter first about the menstrual cycle because there's a lot of questions that relate to this. So the first statement and the out of due diligence, I have to say this to you. The majority of the Imams that
initial statement that they will say is that nobody should recite from the Quran unless they are in a state of purity. And their evidence of purity is that Allah says in total and welfare I chapter 56 Verse number 7477, Allah subhanaw taala says now Yemen suhu, Elan Motoharu
a nebula Quran Kareem Tiki Tabby macaroon DMSO ilimitado and this is a noble recital normal and noble record, it is protected and no one approached you that no one should touch it lady Emma sobu Edlen moto Harun except those who are purified
and Imam Malik
he reports that the prophets I send them wrote a letter and it was passed on
the Allahu Anhu. And in it, it said labor so who lie and muscle Quran nobody should touch the Quran except
The one who is in a state of Toth in a state of purity. So that will map put these two verses together. Allah says name so Boylan Motoharu. The Prophet said nobody don't let anybody hold this Quran unless they are pa here unless they are pure. So they conflated the two they put the two together at the moment that will be for example, and this is the Shafi opinion. He said it is unlawful for a person to be in a state of major impurity, or during their menstrual cycle to recite from the Quran or to hold the Quran, even if it is a verse. And this is the opinion of an imam Shafi in an outward sense, however, it needs to be qualified and you know the opinion so Pamela, that I
follow even though I follow them in the remember chef in general, however, many of them would have met when they analyze the statements of the Quran and the statements of the Sahaba especially some of those who came later on.
Such as it between me and others, they have given great proof gate great reasoning as well, that the area in Surah, Tulu of Allah so limitado nobody should touch it except the pure is not referring to the Quran that is with us here it is referring to the noble book and record that is with Allah. He Tambo McLuhan, it is a Preserved Tablet with ALLAH SubhanA who went to Adam, and therefore this is the opinion of Abdullah him the Ibis or the Allahu anhu, that great Sahabi of the prophets I send them that cousin of the prophesy Selim, and early on and that they agree that this verse was not speaking about the Quran, that we have within our hands, that the book that is well guarded refers
to something that is hidden Maknoon it is protected with Allah is not meant to be the Quran that is with us. The second therefore problematic statement is that either the Prophet sorry, Selim narrated by Imam Malik and and Mata were the prophets HLM says the Emirati Allah and who sends him a letter don't let anybody who is not pure handle the Quran, what does the word pure mean? So it's got four meanings in our Shediac the first meaning of the word pure is that it's something specifically physical purity. Number two is that it's free from being in having impurity in it. Number Number three is that it's free from minor impurity things that we you know, we we wash away not just that
we they the way from and finally that known purity should be left on, you know, a body or a scent or a touch or, and so on the inside of the body, there's a beautiful Hadith it's
astounding Hadith, the Prophet iclm As he's walking and we'll go over the Allahu Anhu sees him. And Abu Hurayrah was in a state of Geneva Benin key was in sexual divine need to take a host before he can pray, you know, he has been intimate with his partner with his wife. And as he sees the profit will go right it turns it goes the other way. And he went, took a bath and then came to the masjid when the Prophet is LMC ism and you know, it's hair still wet and so on prophets, I said MC ism says, Where were you he says, Come to judo but I was in a state of you know, being judo and I didn't want to sit in your company if I'm Judo I don't want to sit you know in your company in that way or
messenger of Allah Takada never use solarize, Allah Subhana Allah, Glorified is Allah Subhana Allah, Allah mean, a believer never becomes impure. And therefore the concept of purity therefore the prophets I said let me speaking about is purity of faith. So when the Prophet was saying to Emirati Allah, I know don't give this Quran to unbelievers, meaning don't let them mess around with the word of Allah. Don't give them something that they can alter it or change what is written in it, Psalm Allahu alayhi wa sallam. This seems to be a more nuanced, clearer, well reasoned opinion. And so when the prophets I send them says, a believer does not become impure, it means that they are taught
hidden under all circumstances. So my dear sister, whether you are in your menstrual cycle, whether you are you know, in all of your circumstances, you are in a state of general purity between you and Allah, the only one who should not touch the Quran or handle the Quran, in a way that is malicious is somebody who is not a believer that becomes a greater context. And finally,
you know, the Abdullah him Yamato the Allahu Anhu. He reports that there's a statement as a variable remember Timothy and imagine that the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that a woman who was menstruating and somebody who was Juna should not read anything from the Quran. This hadith is not an authentic hadith. It is a body of Hadith Al Imam and by
I have to show why it's like the person narrating it a lot more Sundiata Muhammad, I think his name is Ismail Yash. He was an honest person, but he is not good at narrating from people who are from an hijabs, who was the reporter of this heavy and there is a disconnection between them to the hadith is not an authentic statement. At best. It is a statement of Abdullah who wrote the Allah may Allah subhanaw taala increases in knowledge and faith. May Allah bless us all Allahumma Amin or suddenly left mausoleum was it was Eric Allah. He didn't want to be named Mohammed. I look forward to seeing you again next week was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu Subhana. Tanaka. We can take a
short walk there
