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

Sit down. Well, I'm not assuming that some of the law while he was setting them up that it's an honor and a privilege to connect with you once again your brother. Yeah, hey, Brahim, coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia, into your homes in all different parts of the world through the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes our gathering a gathering of Rachmat of connection of the light of His guidance entering into our hearts and homes and communities. May Allah subhana wa Tada use you and I for the betterment of our fellow man, Allah Ameen. This is Islamic q&a, which comes regularly to you with me as its host and

00:00:43--> 00:01:28

resident to answer your questions each and every Wednesday at 12 noon, we will have a short break halfway through our discussion in chat a lot to accommodate for the event of Salado and for a small short break even in Lehi to Allah, I look forward to receiving your calls live on air Insha Allah, you're welcome to join us and have your calls broadcast perhaps they could be a similar question in somebody else's mind that you open a door of charity to them by having their questions answered. And shall I ask Allah Subhana Allah in beginning and end to make us from those who are worthy of his Rachmat His forgiveness and His mercy, and to accept from us the little that we do in service of his

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

Deen, Allah Amin.

00:01:31--> 00:01:42

Today in Sharla, while I'm waiting for your calls, I wanted to speak about joy and happiness, and SubhanAllah. This stems from a conversation I was having with some of my students earlier today.

00:01:43--> 00:02:30

One of the questions that I like to ask always is about their anticipation of the month of Ramadan. Now, as you know, we are under two months away from the month of Ramadan, less than 50 days away, and it's growing closer and closer and closer in sha Allah Subhana Allah, how Julius it is to greet the season of Ramadan, with an anticipation of wanting to worship Allah, to have our records wiped clean, to make an attempt at justifying our Islam in our hearts through a practice that is not easily understood and practiced by any other faith than us as Muslims. And the question that I had to them is, well, what are you looking forward to in the month of Ramadan? And one of the questions

00:02:30--> 00:03:12

that I received from one of the young ladies was, she said, I'm looking forward to Ramadan, because the happiness it brings my thought Subhanallah it's not usually the answer that you receive. You know, some people say, you know, I want to make dua and you know, I want to I miss hearing the Quran every night in taraweeh. And, you know, there's different reasons that people value Ramadan, but really, at the end of the day, it's about the happiness that it brings the happiness of our families in sha Allah around us, happiness of us having an opportunity to prove our relationship to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is beyond just belief in the heart, but it's a physical demonstration. It is

00:03:12--> 00:03:29

a hunger and thirst, in the obedience of Allah, that we recognize that the cup of water that we normally drink that is allowable for us, is restricted because the Command of Allah is more supreme than the thirst that I encounter in a moment in my day.

00:03:30--> 00:04:19

There is a joy that the prophet speaks about sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says in authentic hadith that there's two moments of joy for the one who was fasting, the moment of joy of the relief when they consume some food and end their day of fast or after a long, hard day, but also the moment of joy when they will meet Allah subhanho wa taala. I wanted to speak about happiness as being a value of the heart, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he describes by saying, Allah Hina Rena neffs, that enrichment, the wealth that we create the true measure of being free and being one who is wealthy, one who is satisfied and content, it is the contentment of the soul, the betterment of

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

the heart. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make our greatest joy, contentment within ourselves, within our families within our communities. Allah Allah I mean, as Muslims, we seek to be happy as human beings, we seek to find happiness. Now Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, pull before the law, will be of Mati for be VALIC Ophelia, for who say to them, remind them, that it is through the blessings, the Grace of Allah upon them, that leads to His Mercy. That is where they should find their rejoicing in enjoyment and happiness. What is this full of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Well, the blessing of Allah in my life in your life is that we have been blessed with acknowledgement of him, that you and I know that there is a master, and our place before him is the servant, that you and I know that there is one who is giving. And we are the ones who are seeking, that we know that we have a standing before Allah, a place to ask him and to return to him whenever we have a need. That is a mention of the blessing and the favor of Allah upon us, which leads to the man of us receiving His mercy, because we practice the trueness of faith that should be centered, where we find our pleasure and happiness. First and foremost, we have our first caller on the line.

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

Look forward to many others in sha Allah. SLM Anakin caller How can I help?

00:05:55--> 00:05:57

Yes, Sister, how can I help?

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

You really well.

00:06:04--> 00:06:05

Thank you for asking.

00:06:06--> 00:06:10

Yeah, I got people English. But

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

I tell them

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

my question to say,

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

I am confused as

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

to what before our.

00:06:23--> 00:06:30

And some scholars said 5am.

00:06:33--> 00:07:18

Jazak Allah here for that question. It's actually a very good question. It's a question I get quite often. The concept of 24 hours was not known at the time of the Prophet sallallahu. How do you sell them. And therefore when the prophets I sent him said Yo, Manuel, ala for one day in one night, it does mean 24 hours, but the intent behind it is that in those 24 hours, cootie, Vitaly come home, so Salawat that there are five prayers that are prescribed. So really, both of them are saying the same thing, but in different ways. One of the scholars interpreted lay lay last night, and how long were later, one day time, and one night time, which is in our time, if you look at your watch 24 hours,

00:07:18--> 00:08:05

and the other scholar took it, as what you do in terms of your will do is that you pray in those 24 hours, the five daily prayers, so both of them are correct. In that sense, it is not common that you will have more than five prayers, meaning obligatory prayers in any greater in any greater time than 24 hours. So both of them are saying the same thing. But what is easiest to understand is that you should pray not more than the five obligatory prayers in any one day cycle with your mess, or wiping over the socks or the leather socks the hope in childbirth. Does that call most interesting question we have a caller with us on the line Salam Alikum

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

I'll just try

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

that we're you know, married that your mind to the genie and stuff like that.

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

So I would go out to the cellar believe and

00:08:28--> 00:08:36

what's really our stamp Genie? Do we have any relationship with them? Like the American public familiar with them or something like that?

00:08:37--> 00:09:08

All right, does that come off? It's an interesting question. It is one I think that maybe we can address in a short period of time. So the first and most important thing is to kind of debunk that kind of mindset. We do not believe that a person who is unmarried is somehow possessed or that there are any devilish influences in their life. That isn't an A standard belief amongst Muslims insha Allah does like a lot here we have another caller on the line Salam Alikum caller How can I help?

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

Why? Why

00:09:16--> 00:09:23

Allah He better Kiko it's always a pleasure hearing your voice my dear brother Rockford. May Allah subhanaw taala grant you success. How can I help today inshallah.

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

Inshallah, Habib, I have two questions. The first question is just

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

in the Arabic language explanation

00:09:34--> 00:09:45

in Arabic, what can explain in the Arabic language what does it mean exactly? And the second question is about about example, somebody wants to have love in his heart, he doesn't know

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

when do you advise this person or doesn't give

00:09:50--> 00:09:58

somebody money to taka COVID. So if somebody has, if somebody like

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

Over the past month is how we can get in touch with them giving them when they want to give it the number one who's number two number three you know how to drop

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

in the you know in

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

and they should

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

have been

00:10:23--> 00:11:00

a lot better cleaner FICO malls and one now, welcome Allahumma barik Linetti Esma in our applauding now what what in evidence? Katana La ilaha illa Anta Subhana Good evening Good to be Nepali mean. Allah fildena the novena worker for Anessa Yeah, Tina grammatica Muhammad Rahim. And hope is one of those essential topics. The greatest act of worship, in our understanding as Muslims is to be from those who have a muhabba to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is shown through a hotbed of his hunt.

00:11:01--> 00:11:44

And the highest standing that a human being can have with Allah is that they become Habibollah the Beloved of Allah this is the greatest titles of the prophets I seldom the prophets of Allah who it was seldom one day he heard the Sahaba yet coronal India terminal man called Ibrahim Holly Rola what Musa Cali Mullah where he sorrow for LA, each of the prophets had this title. You know, Ibrahim is a close friend of Allah Musa was the one who spoke direct to Allah, he said is the one who was given by Allah Kenny Mehta Allah, the One who is created by the order of the word couldn't fit your code, by the command of Allah. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, rasool Allah exited upon them. And

00:11:44--> 00:12:34

he said, all of the messengers you spoke about each of them is deserving of those titles. And we're under Habibollah, but I supersede them I have been exceeded because I am that the loved and beloved to Allah subhana wa to Allah muhabba Allah, Allah Adonijah to Buddha muhabba loving of God and loving the worship of God and being endeared and endearing to Allah is the highest level of servitude and worship of Allah azza wa jal, the word humble Imam have been in comments about it. He says that the letters have and that are very interesting. So hope if you change the accent and take away the lameness, and put the fat had had me a seed, so that extensive growth of love is like the

00:12:34--> 00:13:26

ideal of a seed. Sometimes we look at a seed and we don't see the potential the value in it, we look at it and we assume it's just it's nothing. But from that Appleseed, there can grow an apple tree, and hundreds and 1000s of apples can grow upon that tree, over the lifespan of the tree that can produce hundreds and 1000s of other trees. And therefore that small drop of seed, that small iota of love when it is planted in fertile heart, and it is irrigated and nurtured and taken care of where seeds that are planted and weeds are removed from around it. Fertilizer is added to it, Sun is given access to it, but not too much, not too little. When the room is made for love to grow. It has the

00:13:26--> 00:14:12

exponential growth that produces all of the great qualities that we come to appreciate. Know there of course, is a difference between the hope that leads to Allah. And there are issues that leads to the Chatbot and Imam of mille Khayyam, he describes the two types of love. The love that is pleasing to our man is the love that does not take you away from the dictates of the Sharia and the path of about the love that causes you to break your relationship with Allah is considered a type of marriage and desire is love. That is condemned double universally really it should be by all humanity, but in particular by Muslims. So if you have to express your love inappropriate in way, if

00:14:12--> 00:14:59

you have to have love in a given context that is simple, that is not within the mandate that is nurtured for us by Allah intended for us by a lot, then that love becomes debilitating, and one that is sinful. So Allah gives us examples in the Quran, of sinful love, sinful love of the dunya sinful love of wealth, sinful love of the flesh of another. Allah Subhana Allah says zu iannelli NAS her Boucher Howard Mina Nisa well Pennine will akana theory more Contura fair seeming, it's been made falsely, to have love for things done amongst men or with women, and the accumulation of vast amounts of wealth. Notice Allah doesn't say that these

00:15:00--> 00:15:51

Men love the women, but they love what they do with those women, rather than they love the person as their spouse with fidelity and ties that is pleasing in holy matrimony to Allah subhanho to Allah. So any illegitimate sexual relationship, any legitimate desire is action, any real, illegitimate sinful desire of a worldly game that requires one to contravene the laws of Allah to break the laws of decency and humanity to break that which is known as customary of righteousness, then it is seen as being sinful love, not all love is pure. We all know the statement Love is blind. Well Imam have been calling him he speaks about the hope by saying the letter hat is one that is guttural,

00:15:51--> 00:16:13

difficult to say. You have to put your fingers here hat. It's not hard from the chest. It's hard. It's deep down, it requires a stress. It's one of the most difficult layout letters to pronounce a lot of our brothers who have entered into Islam or come from non Arabic backgrounds, you might hear them say Alhamdulillah instead of Alhamdulillah.

00:16:15--> 00:17:05

It requires training into gwede to be corrected because it's a difficult letter and Imam a million comments that the letter ha means also that love is difficult to find. It's not easy to come by bath is a very easy phonic ledger. All of the languages of the world have Baba Baba Baba. Very few languages of the world have had. You can ask me about that. My name is Yeah, yeah. I get cold regularly. Yah, yah. Yah, yah, right. Yeah, is a very particular statement in pronounciation due to that letter, but bad is found everywhere, babbling, young children, they babble. It's one of the easy phonics sounds to me. And also love is easy to be lost. Love is easy not to be looked after and

00:17:05--> 00:17:52

depart from you. And in that context, we noticed that hope, and have, they come from the context of the ancient Arabic language had there been a snag, it is like the purity or Safa will as Nan, the purity of the teeth, something that looks clean. So in even in ancient Arabic society, before Islam was introduced through the prophets message salAllahu alayhi wasallam. There used to be poetry between a man and a woman who loved each other. But she would say to him, stay apart from me, don't ruin this offer that the hope that we have between us by seeking the flesh when in fact it is genuine in the heart. All of those are important context when we speak about hope. The greatest hope

00:17:52--> 00:18:41

we have for Allah, of course, is not an emotional attachment. And sadly, most of the love that is described today is the love of consumption, not the love of provision. As Muslims, we see love as something that we do, not as one that we receive. So if you are being consumed in love that you are, somebody loves you, because they receive things from you. They enjoy your body or they enjoy the time they spend with you or they enjoy the wealth you share with them or whatever it is, you're giving them in an unbroken vow in one that isn't in holy matrimony, then that love leads you away from Allah, it's also will end in heartbreak and sorrow, but when love connects you in that which is

00:18:41--> 00:19:02

pleasing to Allah, it is a love that transcends all of those boundaries and earns you reward. May Allah Subhana Allah give us the purity of love the software of our back and make us from those who are dear to the student of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam joining us again after our break

00:19:15--> 00:19:53

just a common law fair for those of you who are watching on my social media streams do let us know where you're watching from Michelle Lacey sister for it's up has mentioned she's watching from New York. She's one of our viewers. I remember her also I believe from last week in chat a lot on the Instagram do let us where you are listening from insha Allah like always to know, you know, whether you're in Russia or America, wherever you may be. May Allah subhana wa Tada grant you success. Let us hear where you're from. If you have any questions in the in the meantime, do share them while we're on this break. I'll take your questions rather just from the studio in shot law for these few

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

moments.

00:20:02--> 00:20:40

All right, we got a question here from one of our sisters, she says my daughter or maybe a brother, who is not interested in to movies going out and music and things of that nature. What should we do if we are getting proposals for her from people who are very much into music into movies, and hobbies, although they pray five times a day? This is one of those kind of tricky questions because I don't want to give you the wrong advice that could ruin what could be a good relationship, a good future inshallah. Sometimes we look at a person from one perspective, but we forget that there's many other things in their life that could be positive. So what I would like to say to you in sha

00:20:40--> 00:21:19

Allah is, if a person suits your daughter, that there are other aspects of their life that are praiseworthy, mashallah that they pray five times a day mashallah that they finish their education mashallah they have a functional job mashallah they get along with your family, your family gets along with them, Masha Allah, Masha Allah, Masha Allah, but then you see that there are things that are not good. Those are things that you can investigate and discuss, kind of take a look at, well, this music that they're into, is it something that they just grew up with? It's not something that they are immersed in it because of other reasons. Is it just something that they've just had as a

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

background thing in their life, there's a difference between somebody

00:21:24--> 00:22:02

being wholehearted in something that they're unwilling to change, and somebody who, incidentally, has been a part and process of certain things. So certainly in my book, it would not be an automatic discount, it would not be something I say no, don't even come and we don't want to meet you or know about you. Rather, I would continue the investigation into them, and speak frankly, about those kind of things. Say, you know, we, our daughter, in our family, we're not really movie goers, we're not people who are, you know, entrenched in a lot of this kind of culture. Is this something that, you know, you expect that she knows about this stuff? Or that you're going to expect that she's

00:22:03--> 00:22:43

wholeheartedly in it? Is it a part of your character that you can, you know, you know, you're not going to get along with her just because this is what you do or have been doing for so long? Or is it something that you are able to forego? Hopefully, that's something that could be of a positive response to Chatelet. We have another question sister Eman and the girl she says said I want to come chef how many Raka? Do we pray in total, we can we do just eight Yes, of course, you can do just two if you like you can do just one in terms of Salatin width, if that's all you're able to maintain. But generally speaking the pseudoknot from the time of the Sahaba, the Sahaba in different rewired

00:22:43--> 00:23:30

the time of grammar, they would pray 20 in other times the tablet in prayed 40 and there was never an upper limit. In that sense. I know that there is a Hadith of Shabbat, the Ala Moana, where she said that the Prophet never exceeded 11 Raka. What she's speaking about Rhodiola mana according to the opinion of some of the scholars of our method is that she's speaking about the width because you can pray with 2468 and then end with the 11th. And therefore the 11 that you're speaking about are not all of the prayers that Prophet performed. She's talking about the final prayers of his night sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So there is nothing wrong with praying just eight. In fact, it is

00:23:31--> 00:24:13

necessarily the shortest amount that you can do. For total we if you are in a masjid in sha Allah, we have another question and said I'm on income. I have been blessed with a baby girl and we want to we want her to insha Allah memorize the Quran. Can we start doing that now as she grows to help to have love for the Quran? Certainly you should have the Quran playing in your home recited by you and you know when she's being breastfed, mashallah she can listen to it with her mom, her mum can recite to her what she knows, make sure that of course that you nurture a balanced love for the Quran. It's not something that is for everybody who will memorize all of the Quran, but having that intention, I

00:24:13--> 00:24:56

asked you to do three things. Make dua for it by asking that in particular, you're not alone have Philbin tell Poron Oh Allah give my daughter the knowledge in the memorization of the Quran. Number two, don't leave that draft. Make it every day and every little corner and every single day in every part of your day. Make it something then that is a part of your daily rituals. Number three, work towards it make your dreams come true. So make sure that you get a good teacher who is seated with her in front of you make sure that you review the Quran with her make sure that you do the things that will help her succeed in fulfilling the DUA that you ask of Allah subhanaw taala sister

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

arrested she says a child doesn't pray and he's

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Not interested in the dean, how should I support them to pray? It depends on their age. So when you say child, you know that that's a very, very vague thing. What I would say is, generally speaking, rather than telling them to pray is pray with them. So make it a habit in your home, that you pray together as a family, even if your husband is prayed measured in the metric when it comes back home, lead the metric, again, lead a voluntary prayer, the children are praying. It's not it doesn't matter whether it's sooner or NEFT, the action of the prayer itself is going to ritualize habitual eyes, that as a part, they do not have to be interested in it, for them to do it. They don't have to

00:25:42--> 00:26:14

look forward to the prayer for them to still fulfill it. So it should not be a rule in a battle. Why didn't you pray? It's Let us pray together. And this is the rule that we have in the house. You've been at school we pray us measure a shot together, we pray prejudice together and go to you do it in school method if at all sort of measured in a shot we do it together in the home as a family and do that month after month, year after year. What more halacha Sala was forbid I have Allahumma Amin

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

Alright,

00:26:17--> 00:27:00

we have another question How do we find balance between saving for the future without a specific purpose like studies and health and giving for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada at what I will say to you is that there will be moments where you give a lot, there will be moments where you don't, I would be very strategic with myself, I would be very giving as a general practice in my attitude. And when your heart is moved towards giving give, even if it's literal, make it a general practice that you know that what you give has never left you has not departed. In fact that will be blessed and is an investment for your own health care and future let me turn to my YouTube and to my

00:27:02--> 00:27:43

Facebook as well in sha Allah Alright, a few have come in mashallah, we got people from New York people from Nigeria, along Nevada. I have a question can we pray in a week especially? Some of us we are cancer patients in the United Kingdom, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah gives Shiva and healing along. I mean, the concept of a week is a very controversial concept. It should not be of human hair, because that's considered a type of deception. So if it is of a different type of product and non human hair, than it is seen as being permitted by some of the unimat to be worn, and hijab, of course, will be fulfilled there after insha Allah.

00:27:45--> 00:28:21

Sister Sameena she asks anima Is it okay to pray sada out loud to praying with young children with the intention of T Absolutely. And this was something even done by the Sahaba done by the prophets, I send them the prophets I send them once stood on top of his pulpit, lead the prayer out loud to the people in the back could see him doing his prayer. And he fulfilled it in that way so that they can hear it and see it being done. And this was then done by honorable katabi, this Khilafah and others thereafter. So this is also a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can one marry a person who was born Muslim but doesn't practice possibly, or their upbringing was not

00:28:21--> 00:28:48

Islamic sighs and they don't believe in Allah subhana wa Tada, I would deter I would be very reluctant to say that such a person is a Muslim, other than by name. And if a person does not identify that they are believers in a lot, then you should treat them as as somebody outwardly who does not believe in Allah. And I would not recommend that there should be a marital relationship established with such a person will Allahu to Allah Allah.

00:28:50--> 00:29:24

We have another question Acetamide Can you clarify whether we should raise our finger insula childhood, so all of it comes from one of the Hadith of the prophets of Allah who it was send him one of those Sahaba says, So pretend this is my knee, that the prophets I send them a shower because by that the Prophet indicated with his suburb, in another way, it says that he moves up and down so I send them some of their demand said moved it up and down with the name of Allah adhere to the law, and held it up until the end. Others they said he moved it with the Tashahhud a shadow

00:29:25--> 00:29:52

law. Well, Ash had you know, Mohamed Rasulullah others they said from the beginning of the day, yet it is dry until the end, use the finger in your drop. All of them are valid in chat a lot. I'm sorry. We're going to continue now with our live session with Islam channel. I forgive me for not being able to take all the other questions that have come through. I look forward to being with you every week in sha Allah, it Neela hate to Allah, Allah, I mean

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

30 seconds 30 seconds to life smuggler

00:30:01--> 00:30:07

If there is someone who wants to speak to you, right? She has a family like personal data.

00:30:09--> 00:30:20

So I prefer not to do that My dear sister it's better to ask her to speak to a local scholar in sha Allah who can provide ongoing support in sha Allah may Allah grant success and easier problems

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

a lot more Sanjana.

00:30:34--> 00:30:37

A few seconds, so we have a caller on the line in trauma

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam, ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam were that we've been inundated with hamdulillah with wonderful, wonderful calls. They've taken us from wiping on the hoof to what is love may Allah Subhana Allah grant us love, the love of Allah the love of his neighbor, you Muhammad so I sell them and the love of the practice of our deen. I wanted to end on that topic of love so that we kind of meet all of the questions that were answered by our dear brother, Joseph, Allah had a regular caller in from New York City. He asked also well, how do we develop love in our

00:31:37--> 00:32:17

heart if we find it difficult to exist? This isn't something that was absent at the time of the Prophet I sent him one of the Sahaba on the Allahu Anhu habitability Allahu Anhu he was a person who saw the prophets I send them kissing some of his grandchildren. And he said to the prophets, I said Emily, Asha Allah, I've been blessed with 10 children. I never played with them, you know, showed this affection that I see you doing with these, this young child, the prophets I sent him said, What should I do with someone who in their heart, Allah has not placed mercy. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, how what can I do? What can I do to increase it? So the prophets I said of them said,

00:32:18--> 00:32:50

seek to find mercy by serving those who are orphans, in even if all you can do is to pass your hand on their head, to let them feel things will be okay. Which means that it's not about finding love with our own near and dear people who are finding it difficult. But if we begin to look at love as being something that we give to everyone, Allah will bless us with love with others. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, at the Prophet I sent them excuse me says

00:32:52--> 00:33:35

they nettles find him in a cyber rock man, that the heart is between the fingers of Allah it's in the hands of Allah, your handiwork, a fair share. Allah turns the hearts to the directions He wills, may Allah subhana wa Tada turn our heart to the service of the poor service of the needy, when you attach yourself to those who are in need, when you serve those who are we, when you have said that for those who are without their essential need, when you are willing to give of yourself to others, it puts in your heart softness. Allah tells us in the Quran that there are those who are set to Louisville home, their hearts behind become hard. How do you remove that Iran and Appleby him that

00:33:35--> 00:34:21

rusting of the heart is that we do things that are outside our normal routines that are seeking the pleasure of Allah, but serving in mankind may Allah subhanaw taala make you and on the ends are of the dua of somebody who is in need. Right now, my dear brother, my dear sister, there's somebody who's put their hands up to Allah before or after their sola. And they've said, Yeah, Allah helped me, Yara man send me assistance. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah out of all of the billions of people, he chooses you that you give from yourself, that you give from your energy that you get from your effort to assist someone who others have overlooked in that way. You are then from those who

00:34:21--> 00:34:34

will be able to grow love in the moment that are necessary. Allah grant us ease along with me. We have a caller on the line. I'm sorry to keep you waiting, my dear brother, my dear sister, a Salam aleykum caller How can I help

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

me again, the second time, that's okay. So it's a pleasure to receive your

00:34:43--> 00:34:49

questions and be grateful for your diagnosis. First of all,

00:34:50--> 00:34:58

sometimes one witness it might just sometimes three, but depending how tired I am or whatever, but regardless

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

what is

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

is

00:35:02--> 00:35:18

a bit odd numbers, but I'm not sure what sample because I want to clarify this in my head, but not too literally. And then also in the same question, When should I read it at the moment? Just because

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

I read?

00:35:23--> 00:35:34

And this is this is one question. And then the second question is, if somebody's got issues with the water, but in the sense beyond,

00:35:35--> 00:36:03

yes, we do breaks because of health issues. Basically, when, for example, in the process of doing what do they might be doing, again, because it just happened, or they're just coming out of the bathroom broken again, or in the middle of the Stella, what is the guidance from the scholars on this? And, I mean, somebody told me and just one person still want to do and just done it doesn't matter how many times all right.

00:36:04--> 00:36:52

For those questions, sister, Allah, Allah, he better Kiki, let's begin with the first question about width. There isn't one type of wit that was done by the prophet there were many different types. So in some instances, the most common is to pray to or aka to say Salaam and then to stand up for one rocker on its own. There is also the example of praying three raka with no too high yet, or no Tushar hood in the middle so 123 and not sit in the middle. There is also the example where the prophets I send them pray to said salaam pray to send Salam and prayed one, so Allah it was so the lowest amount of which is just one record the word weight to the means, odd or singular, singular

00:36:52--> 00:37:42

number. So anytime you've done prayer to to, to to, at the end of all of your prayers, you just need to do one singular wet sauna and that suffices your your width, where do you make the DUA This is also reported from different places in the sahaba. The most common is before you make sujood so as you say semi Allah would even Hamidah or bene well I can have, you can then make your DUA of width there. And there are different do I have with some that are narrated by his grandchildren al Hassan Al Hussein, some that are narrated by his wives and others will have a son Allahu alayhi wa sallam one of the common dua Allah Medina Tieman had a wife enough human faith with a welder and a female,

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

our late until the end of that,

00:37:45--> 00:38:28

that is one of the draws of wit, and there are others, and some of the automatic preferred some of the memorable Hanifa prefers one Illuma machete prefers one. Just for terms of continuity, the one you have memorized is likely the best one for you in Chatelet, with regards to your second question about those who have a medical condition that causes them to break their will do unintentionally. And it is something that will not go away. It's just a part of their physiology from moving forward. So for some of our elders, for some of our women in particular, after giving birth, they find incontinence becomes an issue, they're not able to hold their bladder as best as they could. And

00:38:28--> 00:39:02

that becomes a greater problem. So for them or for breaking when so for them that couldn't have said that you make a good will do that has been completed while you are ready. And then you proceed with your Sona. And what happens from the moment you have entered Sala until it exits is something that is forgiving. And this will also help you in sha Allah may Allah carry you and all of us to head up Mila. It's the same thing when you are in the habit of making your firewall and all of these types of things. The same ruling is also valid in sha Allah.

00:39:03--> 00:39:48

That's a wonderful question Masha. Allah does a favor, bringing that to light, I know that there will be a lot of people who would have benefited from that. We wanted to continue with our discussion about happiness and finding joy, and that that is a pursuit that we have within our heart. There is an unending cycle of righteousness that brings happiness to the heart. The cycle of Salah is meant to be one that brings contentment. We remember the dua of the prophets of Allah who it was send them at the end of solar, Allah who may me either decree Oh, Allah helped me to remember you more to remember you better to be ever reminded of you. What I mean Allah Vic rica Why should

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

crikey and to be thankful to you Oh ALLAH grateful to you, Oh Allah, honoring to you, Oh Allah, that what you have given me that I use it for that which you intended, and that would you have protected me

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

From that, I acknowledge it is with your benefit and blessing upon what has never dated and all Allah helped me to have her Snoodle Eva, a beautification of my service of worship of you in particular sola. It's as if the prophet is teaching us to ask Allah that we prayed now Oh ALLAH get me and help me to pray better tomorrow. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah increase you and I with better, with better shook with were better Eva that as we move forward in life, one of the secrets of us may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah accepted from us as we grew and mature interfaith is the words of the prophets. I said that there are seven categories of people, of those who have them who

00:40:46--> 00:41:18

will be shaded by Allah on the Day of Judgment, when others will be deprived that shade others will not be given that protection. One of them shabu Nasha of your party that is a young individual, a young man, a young woman, from the younger years continued to develop in the worship of Allah, meaning that they did not have a major decline. They continue to grow in their spiritual states in their reflection in their love for Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:41:19--> 00:41:58

And that's something that we pray that our relationship with Allah, as we continue to in our life is not one where we seek to influence others or be influenced by others. But it is a genuine love law that compels us to pray too fast and to be charitable, not just because we were ordered and told by our parents, but now they are absent from our life. We're on our own. I've my own choices, rather the best of choices, is that nurturing, loving this happiness of worship until we are gathered before Allah Subhana Allah to Allah we have another caller on the line Salam Alikum caller How can I help

00:42:02--> 00:42:04

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

00:42:07--> 00:42:07

Thank you my

00:42:11--> 00:42:21

one question in relation to the youngsters who are struggling and this slip into a very straight

00:42:23--> 00:42:23

into

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

sin

00:42:26--> 00:42:27

weather

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

but I'm saying same is going over to the serious and

00:42:36--> 00:42:54

then on the particular day, if they have done Salah and they slip into the same and they do over again and so often, but on that particular day, I've heard from a scholar that the the prayers are nullified

00:42:55--> 00:43:14

all being wiped out, which is regrettable obviously, of course one should refrain from slipping into sin. So how do they how do they on this struggle? So you know if you are repenting, wise,

00:43:15--> 00:43:18

the prayers which have been done before

00:43:19--> 00:43:21

wires being wiped out

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

if I'm wrong

00:43:25--> 00:43:36

question Do you mind if I put that first question first my uncle so that I don't forget the details of it if you don't mind holding on the line with me as I answer would that be okay with you?

00:43:37--> 00:44:25

More than just a cola head. So, I want to clarify something and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah tells us in sort of teleport con, the 25th chapter of the Quran in the last page in lemon tabber where m and wammie lasagna except for those who repent meaning returned back from their error or stop what they did and come back to their senses. Tabitha, what Amina and then they rejuvenate their faith by practicing a good deed number three, well I mean asylee had their Eman in their heart compels them to do righteous conduct that hola ek Eubacteria Allah who say yeah, team has an it is for them that Allah will convert will transfer will change their sins of the past that

00:44:25--> 00:44:28

they repented for, into good deeds.

00:44:30--> 00:44:59

What kind of Allah who have fallen on Rahim Allah and Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. I cannot understand why somebody would say to somebody who has returned to Allah, that their good deeds will never be accepted that they become fruitless. The only thing that maybe strikes my mind as Kevin could have been confused in that statement is for example, the prophets I seldom says that the one who drinks intoxicants, you know drinks liquor and intoxicants.

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

There's a law that is not accepted for 40 days. A person who reads that hadith not knowing its meaning can make the mistake that you just mentioned that they would say to someone, your deeds are worthless. That isn't what the Hadith of the Prophet means. So I said, what it means is, is that the person does their prayer. But for those 40 days, the reward of the prayer is not the same as if they had not drunk that lick. And in accordance to their genuine pneus of repentance will be the completion of the reward of the actions that they perform. And it's as if Allah subhanho wa Taala is censoring us and saying, you know, you did this, I shouldn't be rewarded for something good you did

00:45:46--> 00:46:31

immediately. Rather, you know, you need to work harder. So at the moment, your repentance becomes pure, the moment your intent becomes good, the moment you continue to do righteousness, then your reward will be magnified. But to say that it is worthless and they get nothing from it is not from the Sunnah of the Prophet I said limb contradicts the letter of the Quran and contradicts the letter of the Hadith of the Prophet I sell them. One of the most beautiful Allah in the Quran is Allah can invite us by saying, in Al Hasan at youth hipness, it is surely your righteous deeds that wipe away and remove your sins just like Allah for that important question. You had another question? My dear

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

brother? I think it's uncle Hashem, I believe.

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

Yes, yes. Thank you was an onset.

00:46:40--> 00:47:12

The other is that when people possibly and you do those 3d, people celebrate three emotions instead of invite for brand. And this three days, and then they also do 40 days. But the point is that not to hurt them to attend, or how do you pull yourself out? Tell them it's not fun, but at the same time does reading Quran the reward of it, you can pass it on to the

00:47:14--> 00:47:15

soul. And

00:47:17--> 00:47:24

you know, what I understand is that nothing goes to the soul is finished except the Chiron charity.

00:47:26--> 00:47:33

So where does it come into reading Quran and reward your eva nusil? Pastor?

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

Yes, thank you for that question.

00:47:40--> 00:47:43

Do we have to have a cap amendment

00:47:45--> 00:47:47

in salah or not?

00:47:48--> 00:48:33

I'll begin with the third question quickly. It's highly desireless. So it is most the habit for somebody to shave their head to cover their head before Allah subhanaw taala as an act of humility before Allah and seeking to exemplify the Sunnah of the prophets, I send them generally, he would cover his head not always sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So there's no sin. There's no deficiency in the prayer but you gain extra reward. If that is your intention. We of course know that in had you don't cover your head and your soul that is valid, then the evening lie to Allah. With regards to the concept of Esau as the web, which means to preform a virtual act that earns so app earns reward,

00:48:33--> 00:49:06

that you dedicate the reward to another living or nonliving person. So whether they're alive or not. And this is something that people forget, they usually attain that they usually ask this question with connection to somebody who's deceased. But the same question is also valid for those who are alive. So let me put it this way to you my dear uncle, you might right now you might say JazakAllah Schaeffler here, you've clarified some of my answers and some of the answers of others, you know, I'm going to build a water well, on behalf of you.

00:49:07--> 00:49:48

And I'm going to ask, you know that your knee honored in it, that I'm going to say May Allah subhanho wa Taala in my heart I make the new yet that I dedicate from my wealth, this water well, for sure we are here. Now I highly recommend that for our viewers. May Allah earnest the good deeds from other people's actions, would that action be valid? Most of their own amount will say yes, even though I haven't intended it myself even though I may not be aware of it myself. Your intention is valid in doing a voluntary charitable deed on my behalf. That is not fulfilling my obligation to Allah. You can give the cat on miser cat and tell me no no no I got your the Zakat this year bro.

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

You can do had a my hedge. If I'm capable of doing hedge if I'm healthy, wealthy and able to do the journey. You cannot do the solid on my side.

00:50:00--> 00:50:45

If I have the ability to do it, because you can do it involuntary things while I'm still alive, the change now comes if I passed away, may Allah give you a nice long life with greed, Allah. I mean, there's a famous Hadith of the prophets I send them that the actions of Benny Adam of the children of Adam, are only benefiting to them. In three instances after their death, sort of cotton geria an endowment of charity that they left that continues to work good deeds, when Adam signed on yet Rula a righteous child who continues to remember them in the righteous drop, and at Manjunatha obey knowledge that they bequest May Allah make us worthy of this in this moment, knowledge that is

00:50:45--> 00:51:31

shared there after by others, that continues to profit people's lives in the relationship with Allah. Allah Medina, Amin homea of Hamra he mean, there will amount they understand this, a camp of their own amount, understand this, meaning that these are three things that benefit you after death from what you can do for yourself before your death. But this does not mean that other people cannot benefit me with good deeds outside my own sphere of influence. So in my life, I can only exert the things that will earn me reward after I die. But that doesn't mean that a generous brother on my behalf, can't build the masjid in my name. It doesn't mean that somebody cannot send students to

00:51:31--> 00:52:15

Quran school to learn and memorize the Quran in seeking, you know, to share that reward with me. This is an understanding of many of the elements. There's another group of their own amount who say no, unless the Prophet authorized the particular action like the profit authorized so I sell him had he authorized somebody fasting that remaining date is on behalf of another he authorized somebody paying the debts on behalf of their these are things that the profit author Rasul Allah, Who are you earlier savvy or selling, that continues as being something that some or other might hold, but the majority of Atlason they hold that there is consideration for the reading of dua for the reading of

00:52:15--> 00:53:02

Quran for the giving of charity, and the prophet is not known to have ever been asked by anyone. Can they do something on behalf of a loved loved one who has passed away in the Prophet said no. And that's why we know a woman as she said, My mother, she had days can i Should I do the fast? Should I do Hajj Hello Jana make hajj on our behalf do the fast on Earth, right. But the things that are limited by the size is because there is a reason for it. So although it may not be act sooner that was done as a habit by the prototypes and the concept is valid according to a large majority of Insha Allah, may Allah allow us the reward of doing good and allowing us to be rewarded by the good

00:53:02--> 00:53:23

others do seeking the pleasure of Allah in answering to our needs when we need them in this life and after our departure Allahumma I mean, it's a pleasure and honor to meet with you every Wednesday. I look to see forward to seeing you next week in sha Allah, Wednesday in the same time 12 noon, London time in sha Allah with Santa Monica
