And I know that there are some of you will have already begun sending them in through our WhatsApp service. And we'll take some of them in chat a lot in due course. I wanted to remind us of one of the important to App of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets I send them would invariably begin his days by saying a

00:02:28--> 00:03:10

savanna. And in the evenings he would say I'm saying that we begin with the morning we rise in the morning, we have the sub of the morning we are pleased that Allah has given us yet another day especially now what customer had what do you call in there? What happened in that? We rise to find that the kingdom and the dominion belongs to Allah And Alhamdulillah for that Subhan Allah What a beautiful statement of the prophets I send them we'll analyze it as we move forward today. We have our first caller on the line. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant the reward for being a set of food and the first and the foremost along I mean, I said I'm on a color How can I help?

That's all I want to confirm with you Allah He better Kiki May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant you the reward of a house in Jana, the prophets I send them says in authentic hadith, that the one who fulfills the 12 raka that is additional to the obligatory prayer and they are the two raka before Fejn before our Vegeta prayer and for rock before though and to rock after though, too after method of two after Aisha then this is a sunnah and Monica they are the confirmed sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they are one in the same same prayers that you are referring to. May

00:04:14--> 00:04:34

Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah was the ability to fulfill them day in day out week after week, month after month, year after year in building real estate and a fortune for ourselves and our families in Ghana Allah I mean just I can look at it for that great reminder I know it will be a benefit to many others allotment I mean.

00:04:37--> 00:04:58

It is just that is it is the same Sunnah prayers in sha Allah and it is with the same intention for the Sunnah, Sunnah prayers as well. There isn't an additional intention that you make, but it is seeking the pursuit of Allah and the tradition of the prophets. I seldom that makes it of greater magnitude in our life does that Calaca for your question, Sister

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

As Salam, o alaikum, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, I see that there's a couple of questions that have also come up. I wanted to dwell upon that, that we began with us BATNA. And also in the evening, I'm saying that we go to sleep recognizing. So we wake up recognizing us BATNA was element coding that we rise and everything in the creation and the dominion of Allah rises, to acknowledge that all the dominion and power of the kingdom is with him. Well, hamdulillah And Alhamdulillah, for that Alhamdulillah that all of the power that is there in influence over my life belongs to Allah, and Hamdulillah that my life and my death, my risk is with Allah and Hamdulillah that my health and my

00:05:51--> 00:06:38

sustenance is with Allah. It's not with a creative being, who is temperamental and emotional and vindictive and hateful and spiteful, and Hamdulillah that it is with Allah Rabelais said the Lord of all might and majesty Alhamdulillah that we are not subservient to other than Allah azza wa jal that we live with a freedom of heart and conscious and being, knowing that ultimately, whatever good that we have is from above, and whatever adversity that we face is within the power of Allah. It is within the knowledge of Allah, it is within the remit of Allah subhanho wa Taala that no one can take what Allah has ordered for us to receive, no one can prohibit upon us what Allah has granted us

00:06:38--> 00:07:22

and bestowed upon us in His mercy and then as it is upon us, nobody can withhold from us what Allah has promised us And equally, no one can give us what has not been allocated and made other for us in life. We cannot force upon ourselves what Allah has determined will never reach us. This is an essential belief that we have a savannah was beheaded would call you there, and saying that what I'm saying would call you that we go to sleep with that same recognition that the kingdom is in the power and in the might of Allah And Alhamdulillah for that, my dear brother, my dear sister, whether you're waking up or soon to go to sleep, recognize that ultimately, all of the power is with Allah,

00:07:22--> 00:08:10

that La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah there is neither mind nor power or ability to turn except that which is granted by Allah, that Allah is in ways and within he is the uplifter and Ascender Subhana wa Tirana, who uplifts us and who honors us and distinguishes us it is also Allah who humbles and lowers Subhana wa Dianna via the Hill will be at the hill how you that oh good is with his hand Subhana wa Tada. Well, who are their coalition Kadir? Their own minds and power nobility and Contra belongs to Allah azza wa jal that what we have vested within us is only by the power bestowed upon us by Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with his generosity to increase his favor upon us

00:08:10--> 00:08:57

and to bless us and protect us and to allow us to recognize the hardships and adversity that we face is within his power and his ability and with his knowledge, that Allah Subhana Allah Allah is Basilan. billary, but is Seeing of his creation is are often very bad, is elemental and merciful with his creation, that nothing lie to poor and homeless Allah, that nothing, not even an atom's wait is beyond his knowledge. subhanaw taala couldn't do vikita Everything is God gathered in the book and the eternal record with Allah Subhana Allah to Adam, let's take some of our questions after our first caller in sha Allah second color Gela I said Imani can color How can I help?

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

Scotland question? Can females wear makeup in public, even foundation?

00:09:06--> 00:09:47

Does that come up in it's known that at the time of the prophets of Allah who it was send them that the concept of Zenith levels of beautification were found and they were levels of beautification that was ordered by Allah to be covered when it was something that was overly enticing, or something that was consistently drawing the attention of others. So Allah specifically says in the Quran, you'd need to add a hidden gem in general be hidden that there they can add in your often affidavit, then, that they should draw their clothes over themselves adorn themselves with their hijab, that is better that they'd be recognized as Muslim women, meaning distinct from others, that they are not to

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

be molested or harm that they are not to be treated in the same way that others may, who do not have that same level of submission and devotion to God. Allah also says

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

In the Quran, whatever you're doing maybe our jewelry hint that

00:10:04--> 00:10:50

that they are not to strike with their feet, we choose to have bangles and it used to have, you know gold and ornament, so that it draws attention of others towards them. So with these two verses, the scholars of the past and the present they say, therefore, that which is something wonderful another immediately striking that a person turns and is struck by it, or it's something that invigorates others or draws their attention, especially when it's purposefully done is something that should be limited in public spaces, by our dear devoted sisters, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us and then them and upliftment in life in sha Allah. There isn't a total ban on anything that is seen as

00:10:50--> 00:11:35

beautification, we know that from the wives of the Sahaba, and the tablet even and the tablet yet that they used to have him never their fingernails, they used to adorn with mosaics on their hands and, and things of that nature. So there were things that were attractive and known to them. Also, the issues that relate to perfume are also important. There are specific texts with the words of the prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam asking that instructing our Muslim sisters, not to adorn themselves with a layering of perfume that is enticing and inviting to the attention in a flirtatious manner of others. This doesn't mean that they cannot use perfume that is within their

00:11:35--> 00:12:15

own remit under their clothes, so that if another sister comes close enough to hug them, that they can smell a pleasant scent, that is entirely permissible, but that which is meant to broadcast beyond and radiate beyond, so that, you know, it stops traffic in the street and levels eyes towards them. That was never the conduct of the righteous women. Before Islam and the advent of the prophets. I seldom, and certainly not after the message was delivered by our Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you could see that as being a constant in all of our monotheistic faiths, whether within those who practice

00:12:16--> 00:12:26

Jewish law, and those who, you know, hold sacred, the laws of the gospel as well. We have another caller on the line, and I want to call it

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

commonly

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

asked question about backbiting.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

Obviously, it's one of the most common things that most people

00:12:40--> 00:13:25

have limited knowledge, we don't have enough knowledge on how to manage it. Obviously, it's possible to avoid it. So she's really trying to learn how to manage it. Now, for instance, maybe criticizing politician, which is a very common thing, criticizing people criticizing people, you know, are doing wrong they've done that gossip is not something we should try and avoid out cause people do wrong and criticize behind their back. How do we manage that? Does that come off as the prophets of Allah who it was seldom is given a very important chapter in the Quran, it's called Surah, tilicho gerat, the runes or the chambers, and it refers to a really the social constitution of Islam. And what I

00:13:25--> 00:14:03

would say to my dear brother, that that would be a very important chapter of study. It's certainly something that I always pass on to my senior students, as an, you know, an initial process in their Tobia in their upbringing, into what is meant to be their manhood and into their femininity and womanhood, that these are essential teachings that we have. So even Allah Subhana Allah says, well, that Baba Baba, let not a believing person speak ill of another person in their absence. Now the concept of Riba was addressed by the prophets. I sell them in a very

00:14:04--> 00:14:51

emotive moment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, The one who performs the Heba is precluded from entering gender with ease, and a person objected a person came and said You also will Allah, Allah in canopy Athena a whole What about what if I'm saying is the truth? You know, this person? He, you know, he is, as I described him, he's not here to defend himself, but he is I haven't lied about him. I haven't added anything that is not true. The prophets I seldom said in canopy here are the steps that if it is in him, then that is riba meaning to speak ill of someone when they are absent to defend themselves, that the crime isn't whether what you're speaking the

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

truth or not, it's that you have not afforded a person an opportunity to explain it. And there are many moments in my life in your life where we hear

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

something or see something or told something that is true, but its perspective is different than its reality. And this would occur with a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a famous Hadith narrated and Muslim Sophia the wife of the prophets I send them Radi Allahu anha, the most noble of women, she arrived to the masjid of the prophets I send them in the month of Ramadan because she had an essential nature to speak to him. And he was in the Attica he is in spiritual seclusion. You don't leave the masjid in the last night with the prophets I seldom. And after she had this discussion with him, she came to go home, it's the middle of the night. The prophets I send them doesn't just

00:15:38--> 00:16:04

let her walk off on her own in the dark. He leaves them as Jude, which is not the norm for Antica and he walks her home and at a distance to men from the unsolved you know, we don't know who they are because they were far away initially from the prophets I send them raw rasool Allah they saw the prophesy Salam and Wyndham is a woman she's clothed. They don't know who she is she from a distance, we know how much I sell them. But there is a woman with them.

00:16:05--> 00:16:43

They begin to walk away quickly. So the Prophet summoned them and he said to Allah is the commerce Stop where you are come back here in the house of ear XlG in a vehicle, this is Sophia, the wife of your prophets. I said, Look, can you learn from the weekers? Who AR seul? Allah we met never saw I send them we think ill of you. He said no, the shaitan flows within the heart and the body of a human being the way blood flows, perhaps tomorrow, you might make a comment. It's not something that you were thinking about. Now you might say, Oh, yes, I saw the prophets I send them with with someone last night who always some lady, I don't know who it was, I'm not sure who was. Now that

00:16:43--> 00:17:34

word can go from that moment from that statement to somebody else and have vast different implications. The perception is not reality. So the prophesy seven teaches us Don't say something, when the person who is being discussed is not able to give context is not able to provide resolution is not able to defend themselves, if admit or to accept that this is the reality. So the the crime of gossip is not necessarily that we're telling a tale in lemmya Country hit the head that if you exaggerate or obliterate or lie, your takeaway, what should be part of the story in the narrative. If you add or remove information, then that is 10. That's a major crime. That's, that's a criminal

00:17:34--> 00:18:17

appellant in Islam that deserves in fact penal punishment within our remit, and that your name be struck from those who are able to give evidence in courts of law if it's established that you are untruthful. So Heba is a serious, serious issue. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, as he passed by a grave that there were some Sahaba, righteous people would have been buried. The prophets, I seldom said that they are punished in their grave at the moment for something that you may not consider a major but it's a big sin, that one of them used to carry, you know, gossip between one person another he used to, you know, speak ill of people without their ability to defend

00:18:17--> 00:18:58

themselves. May Allah Subhana Allah, Allah protect us. So what are, you know, two things that I think are important and guiding light, certainly for myself and my home and my family. The first is that if somebody is not there, to be able to provide context and to speak about it, that you ask the person say, Hey, how about we wait until Akhmad comes? How about we wait, oh, no, I'd say to his face, okay, then it's good. I'm glad you would say to his face, let's just wait until Ahmed comes and you are face to face with Him. That would be what's been. And if you do that once, twice, three times, people learn not to do that in front of you, or they learn not to do that at all. And

00:18:58--> 00:19:47

sometimes it takes that you know, intestinal fortitude, it takes conviction on your part, to do the right thing. Number two, to recognize that any time you indulge in He Said, She Said, they said about him or I heard, know that the person who's carrying these tails and sharing this information with you will do the same about you or others will do the same about you, inevitably, and you will not escape the crime that you have indulged in from being perpetrated against yourself. So as a matter of self preservation, as a matter of protecting your own dignity and your own standing in your community. protect the dignity and the standing of others. May Allah make us guardians of other

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

people's reputations. As Muslims, we have a very inalienable context called baraka to the man that any Muslim is given a presumption of innocence in anything

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

until it is proven, or there's an admission from them of guilt. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. That's a wonderful question. May Allah assist you and us to establish it and to practice it along with me.

00:20:14--> 00:20:59

We have a couple of questions that have come through is it necessary to make will do for reading the machine? And the answer is, is it necessary to have will do is it a must for a better better way of putting it? Is it compulsory or required or a must for a person to be in a state of will do for them to read Al Quran and Majeed. Now reading it can mean different things to different people. Do you mean holding on to the Quran and holding on to the book? Or do you mean reading in your heart or reading with your lips? Or is it reading for the purpose of every bad that or is it reading for the purpose of study and actualizing or a sermon. So for example, if there is a person who's giving the

00:20:59--> 00:21:44

sermon, it's not and they recite a verse from the Quran, it is not a must for them to be in a complete state of will do and therefore sections of the Quran can be recited without will do and some of the roadmap they've said not more than three verses or Quran can be recited if it is not as an act of taboo as an act of worship. Now all of these kinds of conditions they are all thought up by some of the imams in analyzing different moments in the life of the prophet I sell it but here's where I believe the truth lies. There is no text, no statement that is authentically reporting from the prophets. I seldom say stop don't read the Quran you don't have to do or unless you have will do

00:21:44--> 00:22:26

you are not permitted to recite from the Quran. What you find is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Anisha says Can they have called Allah Hannah Cooley actually, he would make mention of Allah and all of his circumstances and his condition sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is certainly men Dube Musa hab, a sunnah to make a cleansing of oneself, one's place and one's environment before doing anything seeking the reward with Allah in particular reading of the Quran. So it is soon that to make will do to be dressed and covered in your IRA appropriately. It is assumed that to make sure that you perfume yourself in the place as a man before you read from the Quran. It is a sunnah to

00:22:26--> 00:23:06

make the Tao within the best manner if you're opening a chapter other than Surah Toba it is all of those who are Sooners, and it is Sunnah, that after you conclude reading the Quran, you make your dua for yourself and your family and you can join others in it. All of those are Sooners and they are not compulsory aspects of reading the Quran, where the statement does come is that they assumed their will that the entirety of our prayer is built upon the reading of the Quran. And therefore if Salah is invalid without will do that the purpose The reason is not just said I'm praying but I'm reading the Quran so that was an inference that they had. Number two is that Allah says in the Quran

00:23:06--> 00:23:52

Allah masu who inland Mata Harun? The book is not to be approached except by those who are pure. And there will respond they said yes, the prophets are IS LM send an authentic hadith and men, a believer never young yes never becomes impure, completely impure. So the impurity is meant to believe rather than disbelief. So a believer is never ultimately impure. Their heart is pure in their faith in Allah, which means that they can recite the Quran. The second interpretation is that this verse is not really about the mishap that is with us. It is about the eternal book lay in the soil. And with the Harun. No one is amending the book of fate that is ordered by Allah to be written

00:23:52--> 00:24:43

except those who are noble scribes of Allah, Quran and Khatibi, those who are ordered by Allah to amend and to declare the fate they are the ones who bring down our other unrelated pattern. So that becomes the most authoritative interpretation. And therefore in conclusion, what I will say to you in our final minute before our rest break, is that reading from the Quran, without wudu is not seen as impermissible and that reward is gained for every letter has ena and every hazard is minimum of 10 times its reward, that is gain, but it is more blessing, more appropriate, more honoring to the Quran, more dignified, that one prepares themselves for the discussion that they will have with

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

Allah for the communication that they will have with Allah subhanho wa Taala in the form of reading from the Quran reciting the words of ALLAH and communicating them towards others, and that is commandment little higher. It is a completion of the

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

Good that one is seeking with Allah as though we will have inshallah a short intermission and then look forward to you joining me in the next few minutes with the second part of Islamic q&a May Allah subhanaw taala rejoin us together and how you Allah

00:25:33--> 00:25:40

for those of you who are watching online on my social media streams, I'm happy to take some of your questions now in sha Allah.

00:25:41--> 00:26:27

And if there are any that are important that I'll share with the regular viewers as well, on Islam channel, all right, I pray to pseudonym before Fajr to to before and to after, though it shouldn't be four before though and two after those two after that have to after Asia. There is no regular to before Asia, although the Hadith of the prophets I send them between every event and karma, there is a prayer that can be prayed. So it is valid for you to pray, but that pseudonym will Kedah are as I've mentioned in sha Allah, all right, Allah He read a key column there any other questions, you can put them forward? We'll do our best. All right, let's take a look through our Instagram. While

00:26:27--> 00:27:01

we reconnect with this lamp channel. We're on that break. Although although interest is haram, is it permissible to cosign for a house but not contribute financially? I really don't like those kinds of very general questions because they're kind of misleading for some people, it's valid for other people. It's not for some contracts, it's valid when there is an essential need that is being met. And for others it is not. So I you know, I don't want to speak about something that can cause you to have upheaval in your life that would be doing you a disservice. Insha Allah

00:27:03--> 00:27:11

may Allah subhanaw taala grant us how you don't Baraka are the okay those on the Instagram do send in your questions, if you have any inshallah.

00:27:12--> 00:27:24

And do let us know where you're viewing and watching from the lighter Allah, those on YouTube and Facebook. I'm also looking through what you've sent. Let's see if we couldn't find

00:27:26--> 00:27:28

any questions before we come back.

00:27:30--> 00:28:18

Is IVF with a donor egg permitted in Islam? That's, you know, one of those kinds of questions where I would prefer that you speak with one of the senior who does not. And this is, you know, when you say a donor egg, is it a donor egg from outside the marriage or is it an egg that is, you know, has been called, you know, harvested from the individuals themselves. I'm assuming by the word donor that it is not genetically specific to the husband and wife, and in that, that Redeemer have seen as this is not permissible Insha Allah, this is not permissible and the best recourse would be to adopt a loving child in the way that the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam adopted and modeled we

00:28:18--> 00:28:35

have so much love that we can give those of us who have children and those who are who are seeking children there are so many wonderful people in our communities who can benefit from our practicing this Sunette forgotten sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

alright right

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

send her No

00:28:48--> 00:29:10

Yeah, so if there are any other questions do send them through inshallah we'll keep listening. We'll I'll keep looking for them. We're about to go back to our Islamic q&a sessions and taking the live questions on air shortly in sha Allah there are a number of questions that have come in through WhatsApp as well we'll begin with them but if you have any please do send them through a look for them in sha Allah

00:29:14--> 00:29:15

long so yeah, let you know.

00:29:17--> 00:29:27

And do share where you're watching from mashallah, I know that there are people watching from various parts of the world it's always wonderful to see where people are tuning in from

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

Allah subhanaw taala grandpa you're gonna love me

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

second

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

All right, we'll be coming back shortly to Islam q&a inshallah to hang in with us there and may Allah subhanaw taala make it a great meeting mashallah we got Belgium in the house. Welcome Allah humanity.

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

We got the United Kingdom coming in

00:30:26--> 00:31:13

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome back. It's your brother. Yeah. Hey, Ibrahim coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia. Looking forward to some of your live questions on air in sha Allah. And some of those that have been sent by email or WhatsApp to Islam channel. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless the brothers and sisters who facilitate this wonderful service for us a lot. I mean, we will take some of the questions that have been sent in, is there a threshold to pay sadaqa? Like there is for Zika? And the answer in short is no. So sadaqa and Zika are two forms of independent activity by them. When Allah Subhana Allah uses the word zecca or

00:31:13--> 00:31:16

sadaqa. In the Quran, it's usually in reference to this cap.

00:31:17--> 00:32:06

That we understand in that sense hoodman and Whalley hem Sadat and take from their wealth sadaqa here, it means the formals that cap of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what is the difference legally between sadaqa and zurka. Zakah is determined by a lot in its amount, and in the things that has to be paid for and from it. It's measured in the time in how often in the house, how often it has to be paid. And it is determined as to who can receive it, when they can receive it, and in which processes it can be given. While sadaqa is entirely in your own remit, it's in your own decision, you can give as much or as little as you want, to whom you want, as often or as little as

00:32:06--> 00:32:53

you want, or none at all. There is no minimum or great amount of solder up however, the prophets of Allah who it was seldom does invite us to be charitable and generous upon those who are nearest to us those who are neighbors to us those who are within our localities, and that this could be a benefit to those who are within our social circles, because it breeds also love and contentment and hope and fulfills the obligations of those who are dear to us. So a wife can give Zeca and can give to her husband, of course, a husband is obligated to look after the needs of his wife. He cannot give that cat or soda to his children or to his parents in sha Allah. We have a caller on the line.

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

I said I'm on a phone call. How can I help

00:32:58--> 00:33:00

you okay, yes, my brother, how can I help you?

00:33:01--> 00:33:14

Yes, I got actually I got one question one of my friends he just realizes that has some bad some like black magic or something.

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

And he's a bad person and

00:33:22--> 00:33:29

but whenever he does anything to anybody gonna tell him when he

00:33:31--> 00:33:36

doesn't show to him. So just by one behalf of him. So what they should

00:33:38--> 00:33:41

that black magic, whatever is

00:33:43--> 00:33:47

gonna report to him please thank you. Allah He better Fico.

00:33:48--> 00:34:28

Just like often I'm going to paraphrase a question. In short, while just a little bit. I think it's kind of important to speak a little bit about the reality of the evil eye or an evil presence. And whether other people's hatred towards us or their practice of occult arts, or what is referred to, quote unquote black magic can have an influence in our life and how we can overcome it. We know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and I held that the negative energy of one's jealousy or anger in their heart towards another being can have a manifest real

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

action in one's life. And usually it could be on a subconscious level Subhanallah you know, sometimes we've all had that feeling where we felt when we walked in a place that somebody just did not like us and the prophets I send them would feel that way. And you can do that in a couple of layers. The owner can be absorbed in lemme seminary. You know, when they heard this reminder descend to Mohammed, you could see in their being in their heart that with their eyes, if they could kill you, they would. So sometimes when we feel somebody is upset with us, it's a

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

I agree with us as jealous of us, it can cause us subconsciously to do things that

00:35:07--> 00:35:51

hurt ourselves or we drop something or we feel uncomfortable, or we stutter, or we stammer, or something that we were preparing just doesn't come out nice. And we just say, oh, that's another it's their evil eye. But the reality of it is known to Allah subhanho wa taala. And that negative energy within a person's heart and soul has an effect consciously and subconsciously, in our life. The issue of black magic as being something that is at times spoken of in such a widespread way, is not as it was at the time of the Prophet. And he said, like, so sometimes you you know, sometimes you see that there are people who have, you know, issues that they know they need to work on. And

00:35:51--> 00:36:31

there are things that they know that they can improve it. But rather than then kind of taking an introspective look and addressing some of the issues within themselves, the natural assumption is, it's not me, it's somebody else. It's, you know, somebody did this, my husband and I are not happy together because somebody did black magic. And it could just simply listen, you're not taking time enough to be on your own, you have too many stresses with your wealth, you have taken on too much debt, you're not helping each other out with the children, there are so many other things that are causing the stress consciously or subconsciously. And it's not just can be dismissed into its black

00:36:31--> 00:37:15

magic, or somebody back home. They weren't happy we got married his former, you know, somebody who loved them, or she loved her back home has caused this to happen. What we find in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that there were very material ways of addressing this. So one of the things that we are taught is a rule here is to make a spiritual protection and a healing and draw for yourself. Now for the rule yet to work. There are three essential elements first, that you believe it's worked, it has already worked, that if Allah has put in my heart to make dua for him to protect me from something, then that particular dua is something that has fulfilled, why it is that

00:37:15--> 00:38:06

I'm invoking Allah subhanaw taala why it is that I'm asking for help has fulfilled that need. So you have to have your claim that when you possess faith, and in your heart, Allah will heal me, Allah will help me see through this problem. That becomes one of the first most implemental steps which is the there is a difference between Nia of reading Quran and Nia of reading the Quran for healing. There's a difference between the NIA of reading Quran for reward Nia for reading Quran for healing, and having a Nia that Allah protect me from what I'm afraid of or something that I am unsure about. So setting your Nia becomes really important. Number two is utilizing the Sunnah and being distinct

00:38:06--> 00:38:52

from innovation and bid and false practices. So when we say the Sunnah the prophets I said have never asked us to do anything overly exaggerated. What are the things that protect us from the evil eye? What are the things that protect us from you know, envy and jealousy? What are the things that protect us from you know, unwanted attention of the seen and the unseen world? First saltan Fatiha when you wake up and before you sleep? Right salted Fatiha, the prophet would recite its ISO Lim cup his hand, breathe on his hand and wipe over parts of his body with it. Some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. It is one of the names of sorts of patterns or rakia the right it's a rakia it's the spiritual

00:38:52--> 00:39:39

healing number 218 codici when you wake up before you sleep, and after every Salah that you perform of the five daily prayers This is a confirmed Sunnah of the prophets isin number three, the last two verses of Surah Al Baqarah. The prophets I send them said whoever reads them Kaffir to they will suffice if that if you have in your heart Allah will protect me with them there enough. Number four is called yeah your healthcare fee Rule four times four times the prophet would recite it four times in his day, one after another four times. This is a confirmed rule Korea the peroxide 750 And finally from the Quran, is the last two chapters of the Quran pull the pull out with the gerbil

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

Philip, what could be the graphicness pull out the rock Bill falak is with regards to the scene in the unseen world with the nurses, the whisperings of the shaytaan and the unseen world and its effects. When they are recited together. They are a real clear they are done as a form of spiritual protection and he

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

Dealing and covering for ourselves and our families from the DUA that would be set by the prophets. I said lamb or the cow of the morning and the evening. Now I know you're not going to be able to memorize them, as we as I say them now, but certainly you can Google and say, What a cow should they make in the morning? And what accounts should I make in the evening each and every evening? So the first of them is out over the weekend imati law he met me Charlie my follow up, I would have actually met him there he met maturity my follow up I speak the most blessed words of the names of Allah that are complete in their purpose. A 10 met mean surely my follow up seeking that Allah

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

protects me from anything that is evil within its creation.

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

Another draft of the prophets I said

00:40:52--> 00:41:37

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would say us by Hannah, what I learned through Islam, what can you metal? Last what Allah de Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam wa ala miletti Avena Ibrahima honey from warmer cadmium Shakib in the evening us change it and say I'm saying that also the either illallah wa that will actually color lagoon Moodle. Well, I will have to apologize. Katya also Bismillah he led the law you do not ask me He shaved and fell out of the window for summer. Well, who has sent me on a limb with the name of Allah that when it's proclaimed, nothing in the heavens and the earth can cause harm. He is the old hearing and the old knowing all of these are

00:41:37--> 00:42:24

of the Sunnah of the Prophet hematite Salam. They are small short drives that are said once or twice or three times, and they are not exhaustive and not excessive. May Allah make us regular of the finally, as a caveat. There are a times moments where we have stressors in our life, that can cause mental imbalance and our mental health suffers. Sometimes a person finds himself in a rut, sometimes it's depression, and sometimes it becomes clinical depression, where it's extended beyond two weeks of them feeling unwell and wanting to get up out of bed. And it's not black magic, it is a clinical issue that requires medical intervention, not just simply praying it away, it would be a disservice

00:42:24--> 00:43:07

for us to mix between the two. Finally, be careful from those who are charlatans, those who are trying to sell you what they claim to be holy water or retail water for hundreds of pounds. Sometimes 1000s telling you that if you drink it, you'll be cured. Anybody who claims that they have a cure, know that they are a charlatan, charlatan and a person to be that who is bringing you further away from ALLAH SubhanA wits Allah, Allah is the only provider of cure. Allah is the only one who provides us healing Subhan Allah to Allah, put your trust in Allah, make sure that you get yourself assessed in the right way, and give the due concern to the issues that are important in sha

00:43:07--> 00:43:47

Allah. And the third and final step of a rakia is do not just do it when you're feeling unwell. But do it each and every day. Don't just wait and say oh, something's not right now I'm going to begin asking a lot to protect me, my family and my children, when you are disconnected from your Salah when you don't have a regular reading of the Quran, when you're at Calvary, in the morning and in the evening are not complete. How can you function and expect that the veil of Allah's protection remain with you, when you are not willing to remain with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah grant us hidayah and guidance and protect us from the seen and unseen dangers that which are

00:43:47--> 00:43:57

apparent to us and that which are hidden? May Allah subhanaw taala remove the harm from the brother that you speak of, and assist them in all that he confronts us in life allotment, I mean.

00:44:00--> 00:44:44

Another question that has come through. If I give sadaqa on behalf of my deceased husband, does he know about it? There is no answer that I can provide you. That is evidence from the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There are words from that whenever some will say yes, some will say no. And the answer is only Allah knows. Our hope is that the blessing that is shone upon him the light that they received from our kindness, seeking that Allah less than with the good that they've done in life and putting good in our hearts for them, that our is still hard for them continues to manifest itself and that we give so the heart on their behalf, that this is something that could be

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

a blessing for them. But is there any evidence to say that on this day when I did this, that an angel goes to my you know, my loved one and tells them such and such and such Landry? Allahu Allah, I don't know of anything that is textually factual.

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

Will that can establish this Wallah who died. Well what allele allottee will Kadir Allah is the only one who has complete and absolute knowledge and power. May Allah allow us to increase our knowledge and education Allah? I mean

00:45:17--> 00:46:02

is it okay to have artificial flowers in the home? Yes, if they look nice Insha Allah, some of them are gods are not really as nice as they should be. But, you know, it is something that we can decorate our homes with things of that nature in sha Allah, can you marry someone who has had relations, who you had relation with before marriage? And the answer to that is yes. So if a man and woman came to know each other cardinally and they had been intimate with each other in a way that was not lawful, whether knowingly or unknowingly, and into their future, they have now come in seeking holy matrimony to acknowledge their relationship with Allah to do that, which is right and

00:46:02--> 00:46:47

should have been done in the beginning. Why would anyone restrict such a blessed occasion and opportunity? Now, it would be best in sha Allah to do that as soon as immediate as possible. And if anybody finds himself in a position, where they have had a levels of intimacy, whether leading up to or in a complete capacity, that they should earnestly find that detachment from it, or to seal it with how you and commitment to each other, in that which is pleasing to Allah and the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam As for whether the marriage was destined to be cursed or not all of that has no no semblance, no evidence from our deen rather ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is SCT are

00:46:47--> 00:46:56

the one who cloaks us with His mercy and if you have been covered by the mercy of Allah, then hurry up and cover yourselves with marriage in sha Allah.

00:46:58--> 00:47:44

Is it recommended to cover your head in prayer for men, I assume in your discussion? And the answer is that yes, it is recommended for men to cover their head in general. You know, in general, it is recommended as Allah Subhana Allah is the One who we seek to honor. So in that way, we cover our head as a sign of humility to Allah and as a way of marking ourselves. Now of course, it's recommended but not essential. And we know that the prophets I send them prayed without his head covered, he did so even in moments of Hajj as well. It is confirmed sunnah, that a person should cover their head on

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

a majority of their occasions, especially when they are in, in,

00:47:52--> 00:48:27

in an act of of spiritual devotion. But it is not something that is seen as sinful, or that the solids value is lessened on account of it. Sometimes people go into bed at an extreme, where you find that they won't pray behind somebody unless their head is covered. All of this is Jen. This does not have evidence from the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammed SiteSell them, or is an exaggerated interpretation of Hadith that speak about the value and the importance of covering the head, Willa hooter and finally, what I will say is, we do not have

00:48:29--> 00:48:43

a particular uniform. For particular modes of attire, there isn't just one type of headcovering that is valid and others aren't. And there is no authentic hadith that prefers one over the other.

00:48:44--> 00:48:47

In that sense, in sha Allah,

00:48:48--> 00:48:58

if you are praying with the Eman, a man, and he seems to have forgotten to recite the Fatiha in that case, is your prayer still valid?

00:48:59--> 00:49:45

Do you mean he forgot to recite it out loud? I cannot imagine that there would be any man who forgets to read the Fatiha it would be counter in you know, of the soda. But if any man after the prayer says while I prayed I was distracted. I didn't reach a little tougher to repeat your prayer than yes, you would raise your prayer shot a lot. But it seems far fetched that somebody would believe that the man led a prayer, whether louder or soft, and maybe maybe they did not read the prior sort of as a lot of pressure maybe out loud they forgot the first rock to read the Fatiha loud, but you should not assume that they did not read it silently. Insha Allah, generally speaking,

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

that the prayer of the Imam is valid for the prayer of the womb. Even when there are negligent wounds prayer is complete. Insha Allah may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow us to live as Imams and to die as Imams.

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

And to be raised up as Imams, having spoken the truth, led by the truth in the way taught to us by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant Cefa Unum Baraka Lachman. I mean, I look forward to seeing you again next week. Same time, Wednesday noon, London time in sha Allah Subhana Allah Morbihan decrescendo under sophistica tubo Edie was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
