I mean, it's a pleasure once again, to join with you your brother. Yeah, hey, Brahim, coming to live from Perth, Western Australia from my home here to yours.

00:02:18--> 00:03:04

I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah was gathered us in our different places and time zones and continents, that gathers our hearts together upon his faith, and the love and adherence and a practice of the sooner. That is the lifestyle of the Haoran Allahumma Amin. I hope insha Allah as we spend this hour together, Islam q&a, which is facilitated through the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel, I pray that Allah Subhana Allah allows the questions that you may put forward over the next hour to be not just a benefit for yourself but a benefit to a broader greater audience. sha Allah, Allahu Allah, I mean, while you call each of our live number and get your answers for some of those

00:03:04--> 00:03:53

questions, and if of benefit to others, I thought it's timely for us to speak about the Orthodox beliefs that Muslims have about Jesus or ISA Ali is set up. And Jesus hallelujah Salaam is one of the most important prophets and messengers that have been declared for us, I think shooting for us as examples by Allah in the Quran. In fact, Jesus Peace and blessings upon him is one of the central figures of the Quran. There is a chapter in the Quran Chapter 19 That describes his mother, and titled with his mother's name, Medea Mary, peace and blessings be upon her. There's the third chapter of the Quran, which chronicles the family of Jesus, the grandparents of Jesus alley and Ron

00:03:53--> 00:04:40

the tribe of amaranth. And Imran, the family of Jesus, peace and blessings be upon him, which extends all the way back in lineage to the great great ancestral father EMRAM, who was the the lineage and of the ancestries that linked Musa and power and all of them through the children of Israel eel, back to Ibrahim alayhis salam. So therefore, you know, Jesus is a very important figure for us as Muslims. And I wanted to structure today, our Wednesday evening that we have all your questions and inshallah next week, if you have time, in our regular Wednesday meeting, to speak and to celebrate Jesus, peace and blessings be upon him. Now I have written extensively about the life

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

and times of Jesus from an Islamic perspective. One of the pieces that I wrote that might be a value to you is why Muslims love Jesus or Muslims love Jesus, peace and blessings be upon him, and might be something that would be of great benefit to share with some of your colleagues who may not know our faith.

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

Practice as Muslims, and what our love for Isa Jesus peace and blessings be upon him entails. And Jesus in Islam is a very important and powerful and central figure. Mashallah. So I wanted to speak from the very beginning Jesus Allah is Salam was destined to be a child who was created by Allah to be a sign unto mankind a sign of God's power to create of God, God allowing a supernatural occurrence to occur. It is one way for you as Muslims to conquer that ideological and intellectual blockade and fear that things can be out of the ordinary. And for you and I as Muslims to believe that Jesus, peace and blessings be upon him, was brought into form created in the womb of his

00:05:55--> 00:06:49

mother, we've out a male's intervention without there being an addition of the males fluid into her without there being marriage in matrimony, that he was created just simply as the word of God be. And he became that's very important, powerful place to start, that Jesus peace and blessings be upon him begin his life, even before he's utters a single word even before he's born into the world, as a sign of Allah to mankind. And this is what the angel Jibreel Gabriel says to his NERT when he comes to her informing her as he comes in the format that she will bear a child who will enter into this world called let Anya kulula Zola and she says, How can I be given a child how can I carry a

00:06:50--> 00:07:40

child well, let me sis Neva shove. No man has known me carnally when I'm a Kubota yet i No one's even used or said this about me. Annika Daddy, come Okay, who are you, Hey, you, your Lord has declared that this will pass and happen Wehlener gyla, who a utterly nurse and this is so that Jesus will be a sign unto mankind, and therefore easily is Salam. We're in the lady moon, Lala Melissa in two different pronunciations. That he is a surety of the knowledge he is a signal of the Day of Judgment, arrival, Jesus Peace and blessings was not born for his time, but he was born for era that he lived in. And as Muslims, we believe that he has an eventual return back to this worldly life

00:07:40--> 00:08:34

that we call home. May Allah Subhana Allah, Allah grant us all faith into the matters of the unseen. And therefore it's important to have this disclaimed Muslims, we believe things that are not necessarily straightforward and linear. We believe that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is the omnipotent, the old powerful, the old creating the one in control, who is able to introduce into the natural order that which is beyond it, and supernatural to it as He wills when he direct will in NEMA, either or either Shay, and yeah, cool. And yeah, for level code for your Kuhn, that any matter that is in the will, and in the determination of God that it is to occur, that he says to it become, I mean, it has

00:08:35--> 00:09:25

become, therefore the creation of Allah subhana wa Tada of Jesus is a magnificent sign. We believe as Muslims in the Immaculate Conception, we believe in a number of miracles of Jesus, and one of the most important ones is that he was sent as a way of a law showing to the people of Israel, Benny Assad in the children of Israel, why the messenger ship and prophethood would transfer from, from their line of lineage now to the line of lineage of its marrying Ishmael. For many, many years. When you look through the biblical narrative, you will see that the fever of the children of Israel were those who received Prophet and Messenger one after another, and in groups, they would be saying,

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

Moses and Aaron Yet Yet Jesus and John the Baptist together, they would be sent together because the children of Israel were an important people of God, but they also required a great deal of support. And when that support was no longer accepted reciprocated by them, it was important for Allah to show a breeze in one game and time and again. Why now prophethood would come out of this line of lineage and into the line of Isma

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

We have a caller on the line after the caller will continue with that discussion in shot caller How can I help

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

consumers

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

Ratangarh Allahu Allah, I'm not gonna just

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

jump to the questions. You know, sometimes people want

00:10:28--> 00:10:28

to

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

interrupt both of them

00:10:39--> 00:10:39

and

00:10:41--> 00:10:41

also

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

we move on to

00:10:47--> 00:10:53

the present tense, it was useful in both areas. We went devices and explanations for that.

00:10:54--> 00:11:03

Just a couple of brothers, Allah hematic big thank you for always blessing us with your calls and we appreciate you taking the time just like Allah said.

00:11:07--> 00:11:56

Our dear brother, he introduces to us the name Yeah, he Alia said we were speaking about by the way, it's a beautiful name Masha Alba. It's one that I've been favored and blessed with Soumya yah, yah, yah, yah. Zachary Ali is a lamb one of the final prophets and messengers of Allah, he looked about and he saw that there was nobody to carry on the prophet hood after him if he was to die without a child. And in that moment, you would be invoking Allah time in a game to be blessed with a child, who could then carry on Yeti three way every human Eliyahu who can carry on and carry on the mission after me, and that which I have carried on from the children of Jacob, and Subhanallah he wanted

00:11:56--> 00:12:44

this child who would live long beyond him and therefore Allah gave him the name Yeah. lemenager under whom in blue Samia. We did not give any child that name before him. It wasn't a name directed by Allah except for Yeah. Meaning the one of long life, ironically, of course. And of course, as we understand the Quran, that there are layers of meaning. Yeah, lived a short life in the dunya because he was murdered and martyred by the people of Israel by vinyasa eel for wanting him to give a verdict and to make halaal what was made have an incestuous relationship. And when he refused, he said, This is prohibited in the law of God. His death sentence was ordered. And of course the

00:12:44--> 00:13:32

prophets I send them tells us that yeah, Salam is Shaheed a martyr, the son of a Shaheed Lucia he, after they murdered the son, they went and murdered his father, which that seals the fate of vinyasa eel, that they are no longer worthy of prophethood and messenger ship, could lemma Jaya Hora Xulon 30 contact them who were very clear to learn in the second chapter of the Quran, Allah describes these times, that whenever a messenger would come to them, some would be lie him out order his death time and again this would occur. So Jesus it is said, who has no father has no brother has no other people in his realm in his vicinity, who are going to carry on this bloodline to prophethood when he

00:13:32--> 00:14:25

is now in the same predicament, Allah saves them to return him another time and the lineage change to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ancestry of his Marine. How is this a part of brother Rockford question? It's a very important part in that Allah Subhana Allah describes the blessing that is given to Yahia was Salam o Allah He and He on the day he was born. And on the day he dies, he was killed and on the day he will be resurrected life. The same sentence is used for Jesus on the SLM now it's in the first person Jesus as a young child speaks to his people he says what Salah more I lay Yeah, peace be upon me on this day that I was born whale Mahmoud on the day I will die once

00:14:25--> 00:14:59

were your bathrobe height yeah and on the day of my returns erection to Allah subhana wa to Allah and therefore some of the automat they have said that yeah hey Ali is Salam was the one who peace was declared upon him by Allah while Jesus asked Allah for peace to be brought to him. In our scripture we believe that a Saudi is set up is a prophet and a messenger while zakat while yeah it is Salam is just a prophet of Allah. And therefore, he said exceeds him in that rank will law who

00:15:00--> 00:15:54

to either an IV Yahia and Jesus on a celebrity cousin, the mother of Yahia. Her name was Elizabeth and her his father is Zachary Ali is Salam. Now, Elizabeth is the daughter is this sister, older sister Mata Yamane has set up and they've daughters in that family money, Imani is set up had an older sister named Elizabeth she gives birth to young and money and gives birth to Jesus. Of course, Elizabeth giving birth to this child as an answer to the door of Zakaria is also a miraculous occurrence that is equal to the miracle of Jesus being brought, and therefore the two miracles are standing side by side, that Zakariya as an old man, his wife is a very old woman who had never given

00:15:54--> 00:16:45

shot getting ever given birth. In her final years of life. She carries a child miraculously, that people always knew was the daughter of Zechariah, their great prophet, so they knew it was a miraculous occurrence. Divine intervention that Allah answered is God and gave her this on. Yeah, in the same way. It says if Allah is saying, the Christian that I have for ya, Isa and add them are one of the same nature all of them is that when my will is commended, it will be done. Allah tells us and sort of earlier Imran in a message in the method ERISA in the law, he the example of parable that God strikes Jesus for all of you to understand, as is determined by God can method is similar

00:16:45--> 00:17:38

to the creation of Adam. In fact, Adam ism agree a greater one has a home in Toronto, rather, Adam had no father had no mother, he was created from the elements of this earth from the dust of the earth. Adam was created without a father and mother, his wife was created from a father without a mother. Isa was created from a mother without a father and the rest of us it requires both of the genetic input for us to be as Allah has ordered for us to become. And therefore Jesus it is set up becomes an important symbol within us as Muslims when money Amalia salaam Rick record, conceals the fact that there is no Western Cape she will have to carry this child, she excuses from her family

00:17:38--> 00:18:29

and depart to bathe, or Bethlehem. As the signs of pregnancy. Were showing morning sickness, a little bit of increase in her in her in her physicality, people are going to uncover something's not right. And she wants to be able to be in a place to maintain or worship of Allah. It was such a difficult moment in her life, that she means due to Allah saying, Pilate yell a tiny bit to let her that we're good to Nessie and men Sia, I wish that I had died before all of this had happened. A lot of people misunderstand this. She's not actually saying I wish I was dead. What she is saying is I lived a life of being connected to God being so close to Allah, I had all the luxuries provided me.

00:18:29--> 00:19:21

I wish that I died on a state of faith where my faith was untested. Now I'm about to be tested in faith. I don't know if I'm going to pass the test well, and if I'm going to be of those who returned to Allah, in a good condition, what if I don't do well by this child? What if I don't represent the truth as it should be? What if I fail this test? So in her drop, she's saying I had die before this day, meaning upon the goodness that I was always upon, and therefore there is hope for her to adjust to a greater degree. Money. Amani has Salah is an incredible, incredible Islam on her own. And therefore whenever she's mentioned in the Quran, she is not mentioned as money. I'm the mother of

00:19:21--> 00:19:38

Jesus. She's mentioned as money. I'm the daughter of Iran, because by herself she's significant. There's no chapter in the Quran titled Jesus, but there is the 19th Chapter of the home titled We have another caller on the line is Imani from caller

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

all right in sha Allah we we've lost the caller we have a couple of minutes before our first break in chunks. And I thought it's important to kind of close this section. So money Amalia salaam she arrived having just about to give birth, and as she's giving birth, she is alone by herself.

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

first experience, and it's in that moment that Allah Subhana Allah sends His angels to server and miraculous occurrences happen Allah orders Hosey la ke big enough LA to serve fatale Titas bouteille Eiki root of a geneia de to call from that tree that you can eat with Cooley or Sharabi work alright now, even when you are connected with Allah, even when Allah has given you a great miracle such as the birth of Jesus, you still need to shake your own. And that's a powerful lesson for us to take to work hard in all perspectives and in all considerations. I hope you'll continue with me after our break in sha Allah, your brother your hair, Brahim was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh back

00:20:50--> 00:20:52

in two minutes in sha Allah

00:26:27--> 00:27:11

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah Welcome back does that como la fere for sticking along with us? It's your brother yeah hyper I am coming to you once again with Islamic q&a Just like Mullah hair. Always we begin with the peace in celebration of Allah subhanho wa Taala we prayed the loss of power to honor instills faithfulness in our life connects us to the lives and the message of the Prophet and the prophets before him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we've, we've been speaking about Italia Salaam in sha Allah, as a way of acknowledging the importance of our al Qaeda, our belief, the word out p that means to tie something tight to be fastened onto something and the

00:27:11--> 00:28:02

truth that we believe about Jesus is meant to be a lifeline in any of the circumstances that we face in life and there's so many lifeless sins that we can take from the personal example of Jesus peace and blessings be upon him. And of course, the methods and prophets who came before him and the one who came immediately after him in authentic hadith. The prophet Isaiah Lim says Kamara with Imam and party, laser Baney webinar, Maruyama NaVi, there is no profit, there is no messenger that was sent to humanity, in between the time of Jesus being elevated and rescued by ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah, destined to return, and me being sent out to you or mankind. And that's a really important

00:28:02--> 00:28:53

framework. I want you to kind of consider that since the time of Adam peace be upon him. The world has never had a moment in its time, where there was a prophet and messenger who was walking upon it. As Muslims, we believe that there were 124,000 people, you know, men of God walked the earth, teaching people and connecting them to the supremacy to the Maker and Creator of old, although there are only 25 that are mentioned in our Scripture as Muslims and a little bit more in the biblical term. They their story not be known to us by the Valencian ethics that they came with is retained in the message of the Quran, and the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and

00:28:53--> 00:29:39

therefore, there was this dark period within humanity. There was this moment of darkness from when Jesus was lifted from when no longer with their prophets, messengers sent amongst many Assad in until in this backwater that was Arabia at that time, a place that was not considered a civilization, nothing had come of it. It wasn't a place that has been invaded and conquered by others before it was out in the desert. They were people of trade, people of Valor, people of courage, but they were people who were unique unto themselves as a symmetric pool. Now, there were many venues last year, we traveled, knowing the prophecy, knowing that the Elijah knowing that the

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

by one, knowing that the messenger, the final messenger who would be an emancipator of mankind, one who is a comforter and one who was a mercy as a lot describes, I want to be in the middle and one that I'll send back a loudmouth and lean and mean, you were sent for no other purpose than to be a Democrat.

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

stration of Mercy unto mankind the mercy of God, through His final scripture and lessons of life that are sent to us in the example unique example. And

00:30:13--> 00:31:04

valid example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So between Jesus there are no one really was cleaned up prophethood who stood out as being a man marked by God and sent with scripture, and the next one to come with the words of God, you know, declaring right from wrong, separating truth from facts, from misinformation, establishing justice, fighting to defend the truth of that is a reality. Carl Jung who is one of the most influential philosophers in our era, there's two camps in psychology and psychoanalysis. There's, you know, the Freudian and the Carl Jung, Carl Jung, he says that Western civilization was built on an archetypical representation of Jesus as

00:31:04--> 00:31:49

being the best of example. And therefore, you know, the laws and everything in the common law, some kind of comes from that kind of spirit. But of course, Carl Jung also understands that the great failing in that is that Jesus did not leave a complete life. He never married, never had children. He didn't experience the loss and the suffering that all of us experienced with old age and, you know, all of these kinds of things. He didn't have to fight war and defend things in a conventional sense that other human beings do. And of course, the Italia salaam, knew in his time that he was destined for that the one destined for it is the one he gave Bushra of. He gave good news, good

00:31:49--> 00:32:13

tidings to his people. Obi Shiro couldn't be raw, soothing, yet Tim embodies me who I am and the one who will be praised by God and elevated, who is praising of God, the praising one of God, he will be sent as the final messenger after me, we have a caller on the line and we will continue with our discussion in sha Allah Santa Monica on color, how can I help?

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

My brother, my name is only

00:32:20--> 00:32:20

basic

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

reading

00:32:25--> 00:32:25

passages from

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

the mobile phone

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

do you have

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

compassion?

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

Or ambition or Katrina?

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

Alright, just

00:32:38--> 00:33:24

that's a it's a very interesting question that you kind of frame it about the mobile phones. So I guess maybe I'll step back a moment. And I'll step back and I will say that the four are opinions of the four schools of thought. Imam Abu Hanifa Imam Al Imam Malik Imam Shafi Imam acmin. In all four schools, the main date that a person should make will do before holding handle in the Quran and reciting it. Now, of course, the need is built on their analysis of particular texts that are ambiguous, there's no clear text, there's no statement where the prophet says to a person, don't touch the Quran unless you have will do. That would have been a great burden at his time, but they

00:33:24--> 00:34:10

understand it as a secondary kind of evidence where Allah says in the Quran lay on a su Illa, Harun no one should touch it except those who have been purified. The second difference that they make is that we can't pray unless we make do and what it really is prayer. Prayer is reciting the Quran, the prophets I said, Lim said Mendham Yakata if you have fellas Allah Tala, the one who doesn't recite the whole Solothurn Fattah their Prayer is not valid. So therefore putting those two things together, they said that the reason the prayer wouldn't be valid is because you haven't recited the Quran and therefore to recite the Quran by necessity you should make will do now another group of

00:34:10--> 00:34:58

scholars came in valid inferences as well and authentic interpretation where they said something so significant as not reciting the Quran or handling the Quran, unless you're in blue would have definitely been spoiled by the prophets I sent him he taught us how to cleanse ourselves from you know, using from relieving ourselves Surely, he would have at some point mandated this clearly. And therefore the absence of that, in their opinion, is also evidence that this isn't something that should be a prohibition but it should be disliked. So it is disliked for a person not to read the Quran. And it is disliked for a person to read the Quran without will do or to handle the Quran

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

without will be honest

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

Under the hole that comes there, de facto. And it seems to be one that has good corroborating evidence in it, considering the verse dadgummit, Soho Illa motohiro None should touch the Quran except those who are pure tour. It's not actually out the Quran, it's actually about a low helmet food, which is a sacred screw that is maintained by the angels that only the angels can approach it when ordered by Allah, that seems to be the opinion of all of them who has seen as being the correct opinion of that verse. Now, when we come to mobile devices, even the four men have an Imam, Abu Hanifa, Malik, anchovy their schools of thought, they say that this is a device that does not have

00:35:46--> 00:36:34

the same sacredness as the text of the Quran is the most, you know, the most happiest pact for us, it's something that we value, and who they fight fake Millia man when the believer to him from Earth management, he placed his space in between it any cry, and he said, how that column Warabi this contains the words and orders of my Lord. So we as Muslims, we are very endearing and hold great value to our relics and our sacred artifacts like the most have, it's put on the top shelf, don't have anything piled on top of it, we don't extend our feet towards it, and we shouldn't we shouldn't handle it. Unless we have purified ourselves as a way of magnifying the dignity that Allah has

00:36:34--> 00:37:23

placed within it. Allah tells us in general, when you have them sha Allah, the One who shows value to the sacred sites of Allah that have been made important to different for you as Muslims. Now having done Hulu, it is to the piety that exists in their heart and because of their love, and and hope in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah so hopefully that kind of gives you an explanation you can recite from it without Lu it is better to recite with will do whether whether from your mobile phone or device or or from the most hot it is permissible Allah who I love to handle the Quran but highly detested, I do recommend that you make will do insha Allah before before you do so we have another

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

caller on the line is Santa Monica.

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

Santa Monica Kohler.

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

Yes, my brother, how can I help?

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

Two questions. One is,

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

of course, questioners, that if we are

00:37:46--> 00:37:51

invited by Christian Brothers, or neighbors or Christian,

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

are we

00:37:54--> 00:38:02

okay to attend? Or wisdom? Merry Christmas, knowing that of course, what our position is

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

on we are not endorsing it, but

00:38:07--> 00:38:16

we have to feel guilty or we can say Merry Christmas, etc. So in short, you know, what is opposition living in a country?

00:38:19--> 00:39:05

Just a call, okay for your call brother has been let's take a question at a time in chat law. So we don't lose the viewers and you don't lose me along the way. So with regards to being invited to eat at someone's home, during a time of festivity, or for reasons that are for them important of a cultural nature, I want you I want to use that word. There are two different Christmas that people practice, right? There's a cultural manifestation of Christmas, and whether people are Buddhists, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, it is meant to be an end of year celebration and end of your season, that it's not necessarily a religious function. And that's for the vast majority of people. It's very

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

much

00:39:07--> 00:39:24

a commercialized cultural event. The second is a religious practice there is you know, a mass that is held on the night and people will eat particular type of foods that they make just for that occasion that has religious significance and symbol and

00:39:25--> 00:40:00

symbolism to them. But what I would say to you, my dear brother, if you can separate between the two, and what you were invited for is a cultural event. It's an end of your work being it's something that people are doing as a cultural event. There's no religious symbolism there. There's no benediction over the food. There's no you're eating the body of Christ or drinking the blood of Christ as they will say in other instances of religious worship. There's no deification and there's no religious sacrum attachment in that function. Then I went

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

would see it as an just a general cultural function. You could call it whatever you call it, it doesn't have a religious semblance and I do not believe that there would be anything wrong to attend that wala who to Allah Allah, however to be invited to something that has a religious motivation that has a religious intonation is something that for us is considered sacrilegious because it encroaches upon other people's faith. Just like for us as Muslims, you would find it detestable if somebody walked into the masjid and mimic the prayer of Muslim without being invited or without having, you know, a reverence for it, we'd be like, Why is this person doing this? It would, it

00:40:40--> 00:41:26

would raise more questions than not, says Muslims, things that are sacred for other people. There is a generous, a general prohibition from the Prophet Muhammad. So I sent him where he said, do not resemble yourself in the way other people have resolved themselves. He's not speaking about don't wear a striped shirt or don't wear you know, a watch with a leather strap. What he's saying is don't on the clothing that is unique for other people's habit. So it would be wrong for me to take off my coffee, and put on a yarmulke or a skullcap that would be something that would be inappropriate, even if it's might, you know, fulfilling the same purpose. It is considered a sacrament and

00:41:26--> 00:42:17

something as sacred for other cultures, we are prohibited from observing them and eating them ourselves, such as also invitations for food, for going to a christening, for attending a mass or for even, you know, attending those types of rituals, we do not take part in them in that so we do not cause insult to others. And because our faith asks us to remain distinct, so that there is no confusion between us and them in that regard. With regard to greetings. In Islam, there is a general permissibility for being any greeting that are considered obscene or vulgar, or that that invite to the worship of other than Allah, or that is done in a way to counteract the beliefs that we have as

00:42:17--> 00:43:00

Muslims. So it is an off the cuff remark, you know that once again, there are two types of Merry Christmas, there's a Merry Christmas, where it's you, somebody's saying it to you in the shop, they don't mean anything about Christianity for it, it's not a celebration of the birth of of what they consider to be the Son of God, it's just something people say, then the natural response would be happy holidays, Season's Greetings, I hope you have a good holiday season and say something that's appropriate, something that's comfortable, it doesn't invite you to greement or be at odds with one in that regard. Certainly, you would not begin that greeting to people in a religious tone, you

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

know, if you have, you know, you know, you know, if you're invited to a function, and they just tone, then you do understand that there's a difference between that and being told Merry Christmas at the checkout in a supermarket. I hope that kind of clarifies that Allah Huhtala.

00:43:20--> 00:43:26

next quarter, and last quarter, we have another caller on the line Soleimani. And one minute.

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

Yes, my brother.

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

Just had a question, but the

00:43:35--> 00:43:37

job roll call finance.

00:43:38--> 00:43:47

I just wanted to ask, is it permissible for us as a Muslim, to be working in the qualified, obviously, you deal with the customer

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

company, we provide the money for the query, etc. So just wondering,

00:43:56--> 00:44:43

like the rule, don't mention the company's name, just like a lot. So in general, what you're asking about, I'm just gonna paraphrase it just very generally, because we have just a minute left for this call for for our show. If you're doing a job, the nature of the job itself is Hello, which is making calls, receiving calls, you know, doing those kind of things, that is a job that has a halau function in and of itself. So the core of the business is something that you want to make sure it's something that is permissible for you. I don't then want to go to the secondary aspect of it and, and confuse the two together. So what I would say to you is, this is something that you're able to

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

do, then Bismillah beginning but find something that's more suitable that doesn't upset you in a way or give you a little bit of anxiety. Then choose something that's that's wholesome for yourself in chama, I just I couldn't love him. Allah Subhan Allah reward you and I look forward

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

seeing you again next week in sha Allah, your brother Yeah, Brahim Subhana Allah Moby shadow and that led to something was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
