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

I pray that Allah subhanaw taala grants you when I tell you that I'm Baraka, Allah, I mean, may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah bless us with the days and the nines of age to be rejoined upon us year after year in happiness with our families and our communities. May Allah Subhana Allah provide for the ummah of the prophets of Allah who is sending them, a contented state and happy, joyous occasion, again, relishing in the worship of Allah azza wa jal, I pray that Allah subhana one winter, if that makes you and I from those who are a sisters and providers have goodness for others, in this time and into the coming years a lot. I mean, the day of evil aloha and the marking of the

00:00:45--> 00:01:35

end of Hajj is a great magnificent opportunity for us to worship Allah subhana wa to Allah and to assist each other in that which is good a lot on the Emmys I wanted to make today while we wait for your calls to come in. I know there were many calls on the blessed day of our fat in the days after in the country, many people requesting to and making themselves and others in that project congratulating each other on the day very. I wanted to make this day of our meeting each and every Wednesday as we normally do at noon, a time of reflection of the days that can be for us in the coming year. So Pamela as Hadji comes and goes we always kind of think of what is the next year will

00:01:35--> 00:02:22

we be here in honoring of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah worshiping of Allah azza wa jal will be will we be of those who are able to continue in our Ibadah and being able to meet yet another Ramadan and another opportunity of the 10 days of the hijab? Now ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make you and I for those who are eager to witness them in the days to come? A lot of them I mean, so there are three things that I reflect upon and three things that the prophets of Allah Who are you ascend them acted upon. After the times of Hajj in his personal capacity and encouraged within the Sahaba one of the things that I think is important for us is to commemorate and to elevate the praise of

00:02:22--> 00:03:08

ALLAH SubhanA wa to honor and one of the consistent things that we find in our religion in our sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that every act of worship that we perform, should be followed up with another consistent act of worship, as if to say, with our actions with the intentions of our heart with our behavior, that not just because we've done something significant in the worship of Allah, that means now is a time of rest, isolation and sleep. Rather, Allah always encourages us to do more. So let me give you some examples from the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala. In the days of Ramadan, he joins the act of fasting with prayer by night, even

00:03:08--> 00:03:54

though you've been fasting all day, it might be hot, you might be thirsty, ALLAH SubhanA wa sallam as then encourages us not obligate but encourages us to stand in prayer at night, and to recite from the Quran. Although the month of Ramadan is a month where we experience scarcity, we are encouraged to give from our wealth in southern entropy than to cook for others. It's an act of worship to cook in the month of Ramadan. For those who are fasting and to break fast with them. We see in the days of the day of Friday, yeah, when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, a little bit yeah, leave off your trade in your commerce. That's our 11th Rila. Run to the worship of Allah, run to the congregational

00:03:54--> 00:04:26

prayer. Leave your work, leave your school, leave your study, and gather with the Muslims the only time that I sell them, listening to something that will enliven your heart, benefit your soul and pray together once a week as an obligation upon all of us as Muslim men to gather in Salah together. And you might think that Allah would say now for either for the apt to select with intention or fill out, go back into the earth and just go back to work. But rather Allah says go back seeking the baraka of Allah the blessing of Allah,

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

the Quran Allah with Kula Kathira but even though you remembered on one prayer, make the mention of Allah again, and in the days of Hajj for either a hot woman out of her team who Rula hang around, you finished out of that go and make mention of Allah in a mashallah haram go back to Mecca make your to La make your site continue in the worship of Allah and therefore as a consistent theme that we have as Muslims that an act of worship inspires another act of worship and act of good elevators us to do more good

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

inspires us encourages us, opens the door to other good and that's one of the signs that Allah has accepted your good deed. One of the ways that Allah shows you that your good deed has been accepted is that he inspires you to do another type of good deed in conjunction with it. So all of a sudden the righteousness builds in other acts of righteousness in your faithfulness when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and then pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah continues to allow for you and I greater opportunities of goodness, we have our first caller on the line. I said, I won't even call her How can I help?

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

You're doing well. I'm handled very well, Sister, how can I help today?

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

Yeah, so I have a question.

00:05:51--> 00:06:04

And my question is, specifically when we asked, related to the guidance of someone else, so let's say for example, someone is not and we are making for chama, that person to enter this.

00:06:05--> 00:06:29

I want to know, is it something that can be changed by it? And why I'm asking that because this guidance also depends on their relationship with Allah and their decision or not to follow the right path. And even though we know that Allah subhanaw taala can guide of course anyone I wanted to know, does this type of work the same as other types of DUA and is it something that can be changed by the gods?

00:06:30--> 00:07:17

It's a wonderful question. Just like a lot enough Haven desert May Allah give you a blessed day and evening in sha Allah. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu as is reported in April hottie he asked the prophets of Allah who it was send them all messenger of Allah make dua, for me, it will happen for my father, Abu Hanifa, that becomes a Muslim and the prophets of Allah, Allah, you were sent to me to ask for him that by the time Abu Bakar returned home, Allah had enlivened in heart that he was ready to receive the testimony of faith. And therefore Yes, do I does make a difference. And we are encouraged to make do art for our children, for our loved ones, for our neighbors, for those who we

00:07:17--> 00:07:23

seek goodness for in this life and into the next life. There's a beautiful

00:07:24--> 00:08:08

drive that I always like to remember, one of the great demands is an imam is Josie and imaginably. Josie was one of the great scholars of Islam. He was a Mohammed did a healthy an orator, a writer, prolific writer, some of the greatest books that you and I would recognize paying from him. He lived in the Middle Ages in Baghdad, and he used to have a select group of students, mashallah, who we used to teach. And one day they were sitting on the side of the Euphrates River. And as they were sitting there, on the other bank of the river, on the other side of the river, there were young people similar age, who were mucking around and you know, drinking and doing things that they should

00:08:08--> 00:08:54

not be doing that are not halal. And the students who are within these honorable, great scholars in the making, they asked him to make dua against these people. And remember this Josie simply raised his hands up and he said, See me and he said, Allahumma can let us act within dunya Z to himself as I don't feel after all, Allah as you showed them, some level of happiness and joy in this life. They're enjoying themselves in a horrible way. But they are enjoying themselves, give them their greatest joy on the Day of Judgment meeting, guide their heart to Islam. So we should always be uplifting in our drop. The Prophet even would make dua for Omaha top and Abu How can we be a sham,

00:08:54--> 00:09:41

notoriously known as Abu Janet. The Prophet would say Allah who hates Islam, they have the word you like Unity like I've been happy with me hmm, however, to support Oh Allah strengthen Islam, with either one of these two men who are enemies of Islam at the moment that are more beloved to you that you know their heart is more beloved to you is better in the making of being a Muslim, either Abu Jen will remain sharp or superb. And when I'm when I'm entering Islam, I'm loving him as he said to Wallahi Nicola Abdullah, Julie is Allah I always knew that you were the more favored with Allah. And then for when you make this draft for somebody that you believe is worthy of this faith is worthy of

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

you asking and petitioning Allah make it something where you can even make enough that you say, Oh Allah, if this person if you lead them to Islam, if you guide their heart if they become Muslim, I'm going to commit myself to this act of charity or this particular purpose that is pleasing to Allah Subhana Allah to add that

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

That is something that is also acceptable insha Allah may Allah subhana which Allah open their heart. They are unknown to me in their name, but it is somebody who I believe, wouldn't be worth mentioning. Since you have raised it in a question in such an important forum, I pray that Allah subhana wa Tada it opens their heart guides them to the truth if they are willing and fulfilling of its obligation if it is best for them this dunya and alpha May Allah subhanaw taala send their lighting to their home and open to them the doors that are close to them at the moment. We have a question that's come in online and Hamdulillah we have this online service and I'm just going to

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

read the question in sha Allah.

00:10:43--> 00:10:53

Is it true that touching the body of a stranger man or woman breaks your will do our purification? Can you please explain

00:10:55--> 00:11:29

the mental health of an imam Shafi is the unique position that coming into contact with a person who is foreign to you of the opposite sex immediately breaks your state of spiritual connection and Tahara with Allah subhanho wa taala. So there are three separate opinions that that will hold all of them coming from a particular statement in the Quran, and statements of the Prophet Dyson, Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran

00:11:31--> 00:11:56

Al Lammers us do we miss out when you are in contact with young women and that we should make order so that I will do in surah? Nisa, when do you make hello I will learn as to Misa or you have come in contact with women and Imam Shafi held the word Lamis, Doom, con contact, meaning any contact even if it's like a fingernail, touching the skin of another person.

00:11:57--> 00:12:47

And Imam Abu Hanifa, held the loosest understanding of that and your man refer to like Ali, Ali Imam on the album, he held the opinion layer Messam age jab, actually, meaning you had an intimate card, Cardinal Cardinal knowledge of another person, meaning your spouse that you had, you know, intimate time with each other, this would be something that would break your will. That is what he's meant, in that sense. An imam manacle Imam, and they held a middle position. They said that if somebody has a lustful leaning, whether the other person does or not, will make the difference. So if you know if I'm coming in contact with my wife in a way where I have an intention of adoration and intimacy, but

00:12:47--> 00:13:33

she's going on her normal, normal routine, and I stroke her hand, but she didn't mean anything by it, then it doesn't necessarily break her will do, but it would for me, in that sense. So there was a middle opinion in that the purification process. And what seems to be the correct opinion is that this word lab has two means that you have intimately known each other that there was a sexual intention and intimate intention behind it. It wasn't just simply coming in contact with each other, although each and every opinion does have its own merits and its own understanding. The evidence of Imam Malik Al Imam Muhammad Imam, Abu Hanifa, is the Hadith about each of the Allahu anha the hadith

00:13:33--> 00:13:33


00:13:35--> 00:14:23

have slaughtered the Allahu anha where they said the prophets of Allah or you As Salam would kiss his wife, Aisha, she says, He would kiss me before going out to lead the people in prayer. And then this was understood that means that this was not an intimate case. But it was physical contact. In that sense, it did not break away that will do of our own everything that happened, sunlight or anything you either early or soft, we were sending. So in all three opinions, there is evidence. And there is counter evidence. This is a very large, filthy, contentious issue. I would suggest that you follow the opinion that you have practiced and that it's common to you and your family, so that

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

there isn't anything that's going to lead you away from, from one one position to another, except where evidence leads you. And to Pamela are all of the Imams have their points of evidence and their points of understanding of the same verse, using the same different contexts and different also, to establish it. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala guides our heart I believe the correct opinion is, I will live with the idea that the will of a person is valid, even if they came in contact unintentionally without intimate intention of another

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

their wife or other insha? Allah, we have a caller on the line. So that might even call her How can I help?

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

She's got other questions

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

regarding the schedule idea.

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

Sorry, regarding that, can we add? Sorry, I missed that.

00:15:29--> 00:15:39

I wanted to know, can we put a single egg? Can we add multiple people in it? Like, if it's a physical act of

00:15:41--> 00:15:47

a, you know, for, for what, for something else for three years, you know, for example, other items.

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

Can we add multiple people like for my mother, my father cannot ask.

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

Understand your question. A lot, you better Kiki,

00:15:59--> 00:16:42

just for that wonderful question. And I think it would be relevant to many other people. I was sisters asked me, I'll just paraphrase the question in sha Allah about Slava jatiya. As she says, for somebody who's passed away, now I wanted that concept of sadaqa jariya, not just to be for those who have departed. So that for God is something we can do for ourselves while still alive. And we can also commit it for other people once they have passed away. So for those that we love, one of the greatest acts of worship that we can do, to continue to honor them in their departure, and in their return to Allah is to put an endowment that continues to be productive, and beneficial to

00:16:42--> 00:17:24

others after their departure. In sha Allah, one such thing is, you know, as the sister mentioned, a watch or Well, or establishing a school where children can get an education in a place where they aren't able to find it, or to finance a shelter and things like that, that continue to benefit people there after. Now, with Southern Virginia, you can have more than one person associated with it. It could be a group of people who come together and saying, we're going to build a water well, in the name of my mother and your mother and his mother, and everybody kind of puts it towards it. Or a person can put into wards more than one person asking Allah Subhana Allah to add up to grant

00:17:25--> 00:18:09

its reward to those who have departed. And it could be in that regard accepted, we take evidence from this from the action of the prophets of Allah who already were selling them, were even on the day or Eve, he offered to ban one color ban for himself and his family and one full ban for the poor of the Sunnah of the Prophet iclm. So he didn't just make it in the name of one individual, we are able to share the blessing of Allah, what share of it is known to Allah Who will get what reward is doing to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, because even if we establish a water well in the name of someone, at what level of its benefit is only known to Allah, we are not the ones who determine its

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

amount. And its

00:18:11--> 00:18:55

its productivity, we ask Allah subhana wa to Allah, to make our intentions pure, to send the sadaqa jariya into reward above those we love who have departed us, and to make us part of that journey that we make. So the pajetta for ourselves before our departure, as is taught to us by the prophets, I send them we should try to be generous, we should try to be giving in our own context, so that we have something for the next life for ourselves in sha Allah, does that hold off here for that wonderful question. Sister, we have another question. In the written test texts that have come can I do can? Is it right that I do three quarterbacks to for the poor and one for the family? And this

00:18:55--> 00:19:40

was one of the questions that I kept in mind from last week. And the answer to that is yes, the share of an animal can be divided into three sections and that's, you know, it can be divided in one section two sections or three or even more sections for yourself, for your family, yourself and your family, your neighbors and then your, the poor of your community and the area or you can do three animals, two of them for your family and your neighbors and one of them for the poor, whatever it may be, all of that will be valid and accepted in sha Allah. So a lot of the hajj it is the same as the MO lady is that is the next question that has come in through the WhatsApp service. The prayer

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

at night has different titles for according to different nomenclature, so they're referring to the same prayer, but some people refer to it as piano lady standing long hours into the night. Others call it Salah to help join because there is an ST

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

statements of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and there's a verse in sort of the sage that about those who stand up and routes but the head V also in the Quran, Allah orders the prophesy seller to head up. Now if you let that stand up in the night of voluntary prayer sallallahu alayhi, wa salam and Ummah, the prophets I send them. So both words are referring to praying at night, some people have taken the nomenclature that pm will lay means in the darkness and the deepest part of the night in the last third of the night. And some people have said that Salah to the head dude is wherever any person stands up before Allah, whether in the early part of the night, middle part of

00:20:46--> 00:21:32

the night or late part of the night, all of it is referring to the night prayers in sha Allah, and some of them have actually included the winter as a part of the 100 and knock again when they were likely to add an alum. What is the ruling on cutting ties with the family, non muslims or muslims, who are not good people or who are toxic in our life? The prophets Allah Allah, it was said sallam said, learned or whatever there are, do not harm and do not allow harm, do not expect harm and do not give harm. So one is meant to have a self protective stance. Allah says in surah Hareem. At the end of the first page, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah,

00:21:34--> 00:22:20

who am fullcycle more aptly called Mara, oh, ye who believe protect yourself, and then your family's from the punishment of jahannam. It doesn't make sense that I let myself go and be held accountable for things that I could have avoided, just because I tag along in the way of other people doing things that I know are not right. And therefore it's important for us not to kind of think about Patrick's size, not to think about cutting ties, but to think of self preservation. Now, there is never any absolutism in this. There's no such thing as I will never talk to them again. No, that's incorrect. I will not speak to them about this issue. I will not speak to them while they're doing

00:22:20--> 00:23:11

this crime, I will not be a part of this problem. I will not get involved in this situation, I will not visit their own while they have alcohol limit, you know, there has to be context. But to completely sever all times in complete isolation of others is not the Sunnah of the properties and it's not good for our mental state, especially if they are family. What we can do is be selective opportunistic, we can send a greeting when it's necessary we can send out a mobile rock or hi how are you or I hope you've gotten better or congratulations on your marriage whatever it may be. That allows us to show our practice of Islam and not be taught by those who have done wrong by us our

00:23:11--> 00:23:20

teachers are not those who commit the wrong our teacher is I will never give up for love it was we're gonna have our first break come back shortly

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

here's that common law fan for those who are listening on my social media streams and

00:23:44--> 00:23:51

I'm able to take your questions now for those of you on my social media streams those kind of look through my Facebook and YouTube quickly.

00:23:52--> 00:24:36

All right, you can post them there Charla and then we will break when it's time to go back to Slack channel. So you can send them up on the Instagram service as well. I'll read out the questions in sha Allah. All right, we have a question, which is better to do. We did a prayer before one goes to sleep or after we wake up for FTM? What if we're not what if we're not sure we'll wake up for PM. So it is better for you if you are not habitual with your nine prayers to pray with first. But one of the ways that you can motivate yourself to wake up for your head is to set your alarm a little bit before failure. Make sure that you get one or you know to rock in before the one rock out of winter

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

prayer. So it is better to delay one's wait until one has finished their prayers for the evening. But if you prayed winter, early in the night, and then we're blessed to wake up a little bit before fetch. Don't let it be a reason for you not to pray. You are still allowed to pray the head you're just don't do another week in sha Allah. Just don't do another week.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

All right, we have another question

00:25:06--> 00:26:02

we know Allah is one but why in the Quran in many places it says we instead of I just like lawfare so that's a good question Masha Allah, and the concept of the royal we are the Royal pronoun is to mean that Allah has ordered something or someone to carry out his instruction and to honor them, Allah has joined them with him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in unison that they are we are those who are brought down the reminder meaning I have spoken the Quran and I have ordered Gibreel to bring the Quran down to you. Yeah, Mohammed, we're in della hula, have a goon and we will guard it. Meaning I have ordered that the Quran be guarded by the angels by the prophet by us I am a half of

00:26:02--> 00:27:04

the Quran. I am one of those who Allah has joined in that word that new has been protectors of the Quran, may Allah make us worthy of this Allahumma Amin and there's an important distinction. Allah uses the word that new or the royal we, when he's speaking about actions, not about himself. So when Allah speaks about himself, it is only I only i The one Allah in nanny, and Allah, I am the only one Hola, La ilaha illa Anika with me, there is nothing for you to worship Buckbeak So when Allah orders us to know who he is, what he is, how to worship, it's only on but when Allah orders something to be done in his name, or to be created by him, using others to make it then Allah subhana wa Taala will

00:27:04--> 00:27:41

elevate them so we know that they are important. Jibreel is important, handmade is important. salallahu alayhi wasalam. Hopefully that answers that question in sha Allah, you have a follow up you can post another question, does a collective what is the correct number of tarawih as many as you can pray? Thank you, brother. So telawi is something that was not confined by the prophets of Allah it was salam. We know that the Sahaba in Medina they pray more than 20 in the night we know at the time of the tablet in the US to pray for to raka in the Haram in Mecca.

00:27:42--> 00:28:11

In Mecca that was the habit with regard to the Hadith that referred to the Prophet never prayed more than 11 Urraca what is meant by that it means for the wisdom of prayer, not through your regular voluntary prayers. That is the opinion of them and they will remember that the most the Prophet prayed for winter was 11 rocker 11 Rock after with that isn't that doesn't mean he didn't pray any other prayers that came out

00:28:13--> 00:28:22

all right, we're gonna come back to our Islam channel. Broadcast we'll take the questions from there in sha Allah, Allah He Vedic fino people, Allah

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


00:28:32--> 00:29:34

876543210100 Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Salam o Allah and it was sent him way back to brother. Yeah, hey, Brahim, rejoining you again for Islam q&a on the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel coming to you here from Perth, Western Australia to wherever you are in the world. I pray that loss of kinda want to add a sense baraka and light to happiness and delighted to our home set apart, that Allah subhanho wa Taala joins us always good and that if we don't get to meet physically in this life, that we are able to meet each other in the Astra Allahumma Amin in Jinja two to have dealt with that whenever you have haven't met some Allahu

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

alayhi wa. It was it was sending him. There were wonderful questions that have come through the WhatsApp service as well as live questions. For those of you who are able to call a live we'd love to hear your questions and have them on air live chat bot, it is important that you consider that your questions could be a benefit to others and that can earn you massive reward in chat bot

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

We have another question that's come in is listening to the Quran, giving the same reward as reading it. Sometimes at work, I listen to the Quran but I'm not able to follow in the Muslim Allah subhanho data says in the Quran or either put a

00:30:18--> 00:30:34

stereo level one I would say to when the Quran is recited meaning to you and to you, then you should give it your attention and listen to it. There are two important clarifications there's a difference between hearing the

00:30:35--> 00:31:17

and listening actively to the Quran. So what earns us reward is where we are listening and following the verses. We don't necessarily have to know what each and every verse means. But we are listening to the Quran. So while you're working, if it's in your headphones, you are listening to the Quran, you are following its rhythm you are a part and process of it's reading insha Allah that does earn you the reward. But if you just happen to be walking by it, you hear somebody reading the Quran and you are not listening to the Quran. It does not earn the same reward. Does it earn the same reward as reading it yourself? Allahu Allah, Allah. There is no evidence in the Quran and the Sunnah, that

00:31:17--> 00:31:43

lessons or and provides a reward that is only known to Allah and due to the actions and intentions of our heart. May Allah subhana wa Tirana allow your intention of listening to the Quran, and being a part of it in and having it a part of your day to day life being one of the reasons for the highest of stations agenda a lot. I mean, we have a caller on the line as Santa Monica caller, how can I help?

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

Soleimani can call it

00:32:01--> 00:32:06

a question, or the answer you gave regarding Pandaria? Yes.

00:32:07--> 00:32:16

So with regard to this data? Yeah, I'll just repeat maybe to make it a little bit more clear. You can have more than one person

00:32:19--> 00:32:31

to really ask because everything else was clearly the one question what I did not get Detroit was like my members of my family, you know, like,

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

okay, for parents, we know that automatically. So what do we do?

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

But how would the President that just passed away?

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

Do we have to like them?

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

Or how

00:32:48--> 00:33:33

does Allah Who better people so the intent of your heart is sufficient so even if it's not pronounced with your tongue, at the moment that you are preparing the wealth, you are preparing a well or you're preparing to school or you're buying something that's going to be distributed? At the moment in your heart, you are intending to do an act of good and you are asking Allah Subhana Allah to witness that you are doing this on behalf of this loved one a brother, a sister, someone who's alive or someone who has passed away and you can do a sadaqa jariya on behalf of me for example, I do recommend that Masha Allah you know there are generous people so Pamela when I've done you know I

00:33:33--> 00:34:12

did there Nika. One family they built a well in my name and my mother's name. And my mother coming to Villa May Allah give her a long life and give me a long life. We're still here. So you can make that intention for somebody living or somebody who has passed away somebody related to you or somebody who is not related to you, all of that is open and Allah subhanho wa Taala grants His mercy to whom he wills We ask Allah to increase us in how you to make us from those who are productive for ourselves, makes others a jariya. For yourself, for your community, for your family, for those who have departed, may Allah Subhana Allah allow us to benefit others the prophets I sent him said how

00:34:12--> 00:34:19

you recommend to accumulate as the best of you are those who are most beneficial for others and how would your email

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

mail awesome hello to Allah grant.

00:34:23--> 00:34:39

No, it doesn't have to be by name you don't have to say you know, in the name Allah subhanho wa Taala in your heart in your intent, and if you name them no problem, but it doesn't necessarily require that it have the name stipulated or written on the door or on the well itself.

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

People may have a blessed day

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

we have another question in chat. What

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

One of our sisters is asking about hijab and the extent of hijab, and colors and things like this hijab is something that is defined in a very simple way amongst the roadmap, there are certain requirements of what is worn. It's not about the shape or the color. It's not about the type of fabric. In fact, we know at the time of the protests that were Lagarde was sending him that there were different shades that the women wore, and different shapes of it. So for a job to be something that is valid, it means and that's a job for men and women, the hijab of men is a clothing for men to wear hijab in a sense means what we use to obscure our privacy for others. So there is the hijab

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

of our home, there's the hijab of our leave as our clothing. So for the hijab that men and women wear, that is joint these are the rulings that both of them fall into is that it should be opaque. So I shouldn't wear something that is going to be transparent that you could see my skin underneath it in the part that should be covered. Number two, it should be less accurate far that should be lose, and it doesn't define the shape. So yoga pants, or bicycle pants or stretches or whatever it is that people call it. Those are not appropriate not for men, and not for women, as an act of veiling and covering ourselves adorning ourselves in a way that is expected by Allah number three,

00:36:34--> 00:37:16

it should be something that is not the best chakra, it should not be something that is intentional to galvanize people looking at us and like, Whoa, what is that, whether it's making you infamous or famous due to the expensive it or due to the color of it, or due to the styling of it that is unknown amongst the Muslims of where you live. So it's important for you to be a part of the greater community and not be an outlier where you are against the trend of what is the norm amongst Muslims. Number four, it should be clothing that is not

00:37:17--> 00:37:29

understood to be unique to other faith groups, it would be inappropriate for me wrong of me to dress in a black suit, black shirt with a little white

00:37:30--> 00:38:18

color the way it Catholic priests dress, or it would be wrong for me to wear a kippah or a yarmulke. On my head, the way a Jewish person wears that they have distinct clothing, it would be wrong for me to wrap a Sikh turban with the Sikh toddler and to wear a Sikh bracelet. Because those are relics and artifacts of another faith that we as Muslims do not adopt Itzhak religious for us, and then it's an insult at times for others that we adopt something that does not, is not part of our tradition. Now, those are the four things that men and women are joined together, women now have three more things, the clothing should not be heavily perfumed, that it causes it sent to walk,

00:38:18--> 00:38:34

while while they are around other people that attracts and turns attention to them. Number two, and number three, that is unique to women is that it should not be clothing. That other add that that men

00:38:35--> 00:39:20

so you would not wear something that only men wear, that is known as a men's clothing, you wouldn't wear the Saudi fish, you know, the black one with the goal and say, Well, I'm wearing something that covers all parts of my body that's men's clothing, in an in a cultural context. And third, and finally, that the clothing should be something that is suitable to the environment that the society that you are around with regards to the face veil, with regards to things of that nature, those are left up to a person's choice, they are not obligated. And for women, the extended the hijab is all parts of the body except the face and the hand or the upper part of the arm according to the method

00:39:20--> 00:39:39

will remember to Hanifa while For men it is to cover from the navel to below the knees for men insha Allah due to their capacity to do labor and other things. I hope that kind of suffice is that question Insha Allah we have three callers on the line we'll begin with the first caller I said I'm on a new caller How can I help

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

said I'm on a cold caller How can I help?

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

Today I'm fasting and tomorrow

00:39:52--> 00:39:56

in like three should be done during the middle of

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

this is

00:40:03--> 00:40:10

So the 13th 14th and 15th of every month are assumed to be fasted. Yes.

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

Can I?

00:40:13--> 00:40:31

Because I've started up today, yes. All right. So if you fast that Thursday, then you then you can fast Friday, and you can fast Friday and Saturday, or Thursday and Friday, but since it's the 13th 14th 15th, when they started the Friday, that should be appropriate in sha Allah.

00:40:33--> 00:40:37

Okay, that's unfortunate. Yes, we brush our teeth.

00:40:40--> 00:41:27

Yes, but you would want to limit the amount of flavoring in it. So I recommend and what I normally practice is to use an empty toothbrush, it has the same usage and the same useful effect as if you were to put fluoride and other things with it. So just while you're fasting, maybe be epsa cooler, and have your meal, eat it and then have a good toothbrush with your mouthwash and all of that. And then in the day, if you need to brush your teeth, then just use it without too much of the Colgate and those kinds of things on it. You're allowed to use it but I prefer that you do not use it just out of caution. Inshallah.

00:41:29--> 00:41:31

Thank you very much. Thank you.

00:41:32--> 00:41:35

We have another caller on the line that said I want to call her

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

I said I want to call her

00:41:45--> 00:41:47

live, how can I help

00:41:55--> 00:41:59

one thing I have to because that's not my mother upon it.

00:42:01--> 00:42:47

So it is easy to read the Quran? Yes, yes, of course. It is necessary to read the Quran. And I'm going to tell you a secret empty. There's a lot of Arabic people and more all Arabic people when they read the Quran, there are many many words that they do not understand. If you have an Arabic friend next time you meet them, ask him you know when to select your own fat. You know, what does that mean? I don't know. We'll add the last half and more yet the other half and we'll be writing so we have the FM NaVi Naka what does that mean? Larry, I don't know I need to read epsiode tafsir is just a dictionary or an explanation of the Quran. I do not believe that because somebody can read an

00:42:47--> 00:43:26

Arabic newspaper that that gives them the Arabic knowledge for them to understand the Quran. In every part of the Quran. Allah tells us in Surah Ali Imran in the first few verses that this Quran mean who I get to come at some of its verses most of its verses are easily translatable and understood what mean who Muhtar may have wished we had other verses are ambiguous, that are not easy for everybody to understand that requires a study of the Quran. There is nobody alive today. Hijjah who can tell you what led

00:43:27--> 00:44:01

me saw God needs the first three, the first four letters of Surah Al out of nobody knows only Allah knows so not because you don't know the meaning. It means you should hold back on reading it. rather read it in Arabi earn the reward of every letter, equaling 10 and doubled when there is a struggle in reading it quickly and correctly. As promised by the prophets. I said, We have another caller on the line so nobody can call her How can I help

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

Solomonic caller

00:44:19--> 00:44:21

Yes sister Cemani

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

it and

00:44:51--> 00:44:52

so that the good

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

this is not something that has been a norm amongst the scholars of the past.

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

So nobody in the past has done that as a precedent and for that reason, I would say no, it is better not to. But for those who we are acquainted with those who have left an impact in our life or have done us favor or that we look fondly Upon asking for their favor, then we should we can include them. But the best way of honoring that abuse is and that is I will do the sheriff and the saltwater from the peroxide select and that's one of the greatest act that is a continuous southern progeria upon the prophesy settlement that we make mention of him asking Allah to send peace and blessings upon our Navy Mohamed Salah are you sir limped along masala medic

00:46:15--> 00:46:18

I would like to thank you for that.

00:46:21--> 00:46:22

Your answer you're

00:46:26--> 00:46:27

really, really good.

00:46:28--> 00:46:31

And I have to the other question is

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


00:46:36--> 00:46:37

kind of

00:46:39--> 00:46:41

00:46:44--> 00:46:55

to Allah grant, you're so you're on baraka and I look forward to receiving your calls again next week. If you don't get a hold of me this week in sha Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah bless your week until then, along Amin,

00:46:57--> 00:46:57


00:47:04--> 00:47:06

Allahu Radek people

00:47:13--> 00:47:54

so it's wonderful Alhamdulillah that we are able to kind of think about doing good for others. And you know, subhanAllah, we've had three or four questions about soda jatiya. And so Pamela, see how that sisters initial question kind of sparks the interest of so many other people? Sometimes we have a question and we kind of assume that it's related to us or it's something that's just, you know, something on my mind, but for many of us to have a lot, we have the similar kind of question, similar types of interest, wanting the same kind of clarification, don't be shy to calling to send your questions Insha Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to ALLAH to open our hearts to that which is

00:47:54--> 00:48:40

good. One of the things that I wanted to end our time with, we have just a few minutes left in sha Allah, unless we're interrupted with another call, is about the importance of going a little bit past knowledge. So past our what we assumed to be knowledge. So there is, for example, a lot of us when we were speaking about South Africa, giardia, and I will put a band aid people were asking about, you know, do I have to give it to my neighbor? And the question is, yes, well, what does the word neighbor be? So the way we live today is not necessarily the type of neighborly ways that people lived at the time of the prophets, I send them. So for example, you can have your back wall

00:48:40--> 00:49:22

to another person's back wall, they are your neighbor in front or the back to you, but you haven't really met them, you haven't really seen them. And you don't see them as a neighbor in that sense. So the concept of neighbor is not just physical proximity alone, but it is physical proximity and interaction with each other. And that becomes a really important thing. It's not just, you know, that's where the encouragement to get to know our neighbors and to be a part of each other's existence becomes a very important tradition in Islam, Muslim neighbors, and non Muslim neighbors. In fact, the hadith of distributing

00:49:23--> 00:49:59

the idea of Abdullah in the ambulance Bill asked that his family Behati actually stipulates that he says to the butcher, when you are distributing and cutting up my Oban, make sure that you provide some of it to my neighbor who is a Jewish, my Jewish neighbor. And that kind of shows you that he thought about this neighbor, it didn't matter what his faith or religion was, that the neighbor that was next to him who they had a relationship with each other was worthy of being honored and treated to the altar bad and when the butcher

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

Last year who didn't? Should I really give it to him? Should I really begin the distribution with him? And Abdullah had a number of the last he said Bella Kadek eliminar was hula Yes, definitely. This is what we were taught by the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was like he was sending him. I pray the loss of Hannah winter Ana raises your rank, assist you in the days to come. That Allah allows us to end our Hijra year 1443 upon good that the new incoming year in the month of Boko Haram begins with its Baraka, its blessing Allah.

00:50:38--> 00:51:12

Next week in sha Allah, I will not be with you on Wednesday. I'm traveling a little bit later on to Senator meetcha. And to Bosnia in commemoration and the honor of the marchers and the 27th anniversary of the genocide making to art for those who have lost their loved ones to be rejoined and rejoining and returned to them in Jannah Allah I mean, I will be on a trip in sha Allah next week and I will see you the week after be delighted to Allah forgive me for my inability to share with you in sha Allah.

00:51:13--> 00:51:18

I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah green to his spot, is baraka light as

00:51:22--> 00:51:22

it was it was.

00:51:45--> 00:51:48
