Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah it's your brother. Yeah. Hey, Ibrahim joining you once again for Wednesday Islamic q&a. Each and every Wednesday at noon London time Alhamdulillah I get an opportunity to sit with you for one hour, seeking the Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is through the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel, may Allah subhanaw taala reward everybody who brings this together. Here I am on Earth, in my home in Western Australia, coming live to you in your different localities around the world. Ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us higher and Baraka in our dunya. And after you make us from those
who are guides to righteousness, and lead us to betterment in all of our affairs, and welcome, I mean, this is a live call in q&a program and I do look forward to hearing from you some of the questions that you assist others with, there's an act of sadaqa of course from yourselves, that perhaps you ask something that is on the mind in the heart of others, that could be a great reward for you as well in sha Allah. There are numerous questions that also come in through our written services at Islam channel.tv. And this is also something that you are able to forward through there the evening.
But I do love hearing your voices calling in and do let us know where you're calling in from, it's always interesting to see people listening from various parts of the world along with me. I wanted to begin our discussion in sha Allah speaking about the magnificence of and the importance of traveling and journeying in the path of through inspiration, and seeking Betterment for ourselves and others. One of the things we noticed about the life of the prophets I send them was that he enjoyed travel, even though he describes it as a section of difficulty, hardship or even punishment. Meaning that in travel, there's always going to be some adversity, something that's different to
what you have if you were to just sit at home, but definitely the journey is worth it. And the more you travel, the more you see and this is in the Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala that no Quran Flm ese ro fill out for young guru don't they go out traveling throughout all parts of the earth and look upon sometimes it's look upon the destruction of people who came before them or perish nations for their wickedness and sinfulness. And it becomes a testament for our own betterment and ourselves. Sometimes we see the grandeur of what was built in the past that did not save anyone in their opportunity and in their wealth to escape their terminal return to Allah Subhana Allah want to
add up, we always have a great interest in seeking of information about those who preceded us, because it kind of gives us our own footing where we are in the world today, who would not love to travel to the sacred land to see the cabin that was initially built by Marielle and Ibrahim, that was rebuilt in the time of the Prophet Muhammad. So I said to him, that he may pull off around in those demarcated areas. Now, of course, there's a lot more marble, and there's a different shelter or curtain that hangs above the cabin. But the essence of the place, the importance of that locality remains not withstanding. So it's important for us to venture to travel and to see, I pray that
Allah subhanaw taala makes us from those who are willing to go out and travelled throughout the earth and see and learn through experimentation, through practice, through travel and discussion with others to learn that there is much more that brings us together than that, which divides us a lot. I mean, there's a number of questions that I see popping up before me Alhamdulillah one of the questions that is being asked SLM on ECAM with regards to haram meanings or earnings, if it is passed on to me by somebody who received them in a way that we as Muslims would not be accepting of. So sometimes, you know, just say, Let me paraphrase a question, if somebody was to win the lottery,
and they recognize that gambling is now something that is sinful, and they want, you know, a modest sum of say 100 pounds or 1000 pounds, what can they do with that money? Can they pass it on to somebody else? Is it halal for the next person? So in our principles of Islam, there are different opinions.
In such a circumstance, one opinion is that the actual wealth itself, the actual money itself does not become tarnished, unless it was taken unjustly, you know, robbery or theft, or an unjust
you know dispossession of another, but was earned through a haram income, you know, somebody does a job that maybe is questionable, they earn something that's the next person that benefits from it. The Haram is not transferable in that sense. So that person may have, you know, for example, you know, received it in a way that didn't injure somebody else didn't dispossessed somebody else, but it wasn't in their capacity, halal for them to receive it in that way. They earned it from, you know, a gambling or, you know, a card game or something like that. If they were to pass it on to somebody else and say, Listen, I don't want this money. But you know, I'm not going to throw it in
the beam in the rubbish. So make use of it, that person making use of it is not sinful in receiving it. If one they didn't know its source, or even if they did, if they understood that it's not returnable to the person who received it in a simple way. So you can't say, Look, I'm going to loan you and then give me back my money, that that would be unethical and unacceptable for us as Muslims. Think of it in the way of, for example, one of our brothers who drives a taxi, and he's given a call, you need to come to a casino, and the person who enters into their cab, you know, says to them, I want 5000 pounds today, $5,000 I'm so happy. And as he's dropping them off, he gives them
you know, his wage and 100 pound tip, which is likely to a bit earned from the gambling profits. Is that 100 pound tip halal? The answer is yes. The money itself is not the problem for the person who earned it in a sinful way in our ethical, religious, spiritual way. It's haram, but for them to pass it on to purchase something else with it can pass it on to another to make payment is not something that is worrisome for the person receiving it. And this is one opinion. The other opinion is is that if a person knows that it is from ill gotten means, and it is something that was earned in a way that was not halal, even if it was not dangerous to others, it is not valid for us to make use of it
out of our own self protection, that we only want to feed ourselves and our homes, that which is halal. Both opinions have their justifications. And they leave you with both of them. Insha Allah, Allah who to hire that, Adam,
if you we have another question that has popped up on our internet service, I had a question that if you are allowed to fade parts of your hair as a hairstyle, so I'm assuming that means you know, somebody, he you know, he has full head of hair, but he wants the sides to be a lot shorter than the top. We think with regards to hairstyles, all of them are permissible, as long as they meet particular simple require. The first of them is that they are not distinctive of other people's faith and tradition. So for example, we know that the Jewish people they grow, you know, hair on the side here, so they grow this lock of hair down on either side, as a Muslim you are prohibited from
doing so, because it is can be considered by other people as a mockery of their tradition. It can be seen as being indistinct from them that, you know, there's no distinction between us and them. And we're meant to distinguish ourselves in that sense. And because it is a unique religious tradition, we should not do something that others may consider sacrilegious. So we're prohibited from that. Secondly, the second condition is that your hairstyle should not be something that is short Hora Lillico, something that is infamous on account of disbelief. So you will find that there are religious traditions, for example, that grow a small lock of hair, or they'll cut all parts of their
hair and just leave a tuft of it at the front to the side, whether they're Buddhists or Hindus, whatever it is, whatever tradition or it could be whatever popular style and even if it is a style of a particular rapper or particular singer or heavy metal or whatever it is, it is seen as prohibited because your association is not with a greater part of our community. Your association is with those who are practicing a faith and tradition that is distinct from us. It's not from us, and we should not try to identify more with them than within our own community in that sense.
Are you allowed to have, you know, can you cut your hair and my hair was cut that way? You know, it's probably level four on the top level two or three on the side? Are you allowed to fade? In that sense? Yes. But should you do designs and things that are mimicking the attributes of other people? The answer would be no Insha Allah, are you allowed to fade gradually from low to high? Yes. And this was done at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you don't have to have all of your hair one length, that is not seen as as being a necessity within our Sharia. So you can have levels you can have a feed, as long as it is something that is appropriate within our
Islamic ethos and community. Shala we have a caller on the line as Salam Alikum caller, how can I help?
Yes. I can't hear you. How can I help?
My question is, can we buy a house on fixed monthly installments?
And hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah, Salam O Allah.
So two things that are important in this, you know, answering questions similar to this. First, I'm not a financial adviser. So I don't want there to be any confusion about that anything that I say to you don't take it as financial advice and make a personal decision for yourself and your family based on it. In our Chevy i We are prohibited from entering what is a specific question in a general capacity unless we make that known. So I want you to know I'm not entering for your specific circumstances I'm not aware with of your finances and your home life and all of the different determinants, I'm just giving general advice that is non specific to your particular case. The
second thing that is important is to recognize that there will always be more than one religiously accepted opinion. And when it comes to setting a payment for a term, that there is graduated fixed payments, this in general is seen as being accepted. This in general is seen as being accepted by the majority of their roadmap. So if for example, you know, I own a car or a home, just say something that's worth $100,000 And somebody says I can pay you over the next 100 months $1,000 Each month, would you be accepting to that and if I was to enter into a contract with that, to take a solemn undertaking to to recognize that there will be retained equity until the full amount as long
as it's made known, who remains the owner of the home until the term is paid. All of those kinds of things that have legal binding effects are discussed and the true root the contractual underpinnings are clear, then yes, it can be seen as being a valid contract in sha Allah. However, it is something that would require financial services to be involved, that there is a greater consideration of what what part of it is that what part of it is owned as the monthly payments are being made. You know, there's so many intricate things I would caution. Anybody from entering into a contract similar to that without being very, very clear on the very nitty gritty, small written details of that
contract. A lot with data. Adam.
I believe we have another caller on the line in sha Allah said Imani can call her
nice the same laid out there's a common law fair, we have a follow up question in sha Allah Salam aleikum?
Yes, I can shut I'm on ECAM How can I help?
20 years contract, Attorney private contract, if it's going for five years, five years
or not. So so now we're talking about more conventional banking kind of systems, where there's, you know, a fixed debt, and then you the debt still remains you're not you're not the owner of what it is. So now it becomes a little bit more complex, you're not offsetting the full amount over a defined fixed term. And that would be problematic because they never show you we don't make two contracts for one sale. We don't make two conditions for one agreement in that sense. So it would be invalid to say, you know, I'm going to pay fixed rates and then after five years, we're going to do another contract but all of it
He's negotiated in the very beginning. Those kinds of things would require a more detailed expert, experienced point of view, I would highly recommend insha Allah my dear brother to attend to one of the financial consultants, Muslim financial consultants, somebody who is sophisticated in their share your knowledge, who can assist you in the you know, removing the ambiguity and giving you a good Halal solution in sha Allah, there are solutions to what it is that you're speaking up, but it's not something that I would just talk mention it in a general capacity insha Allah may Allah Subhana Allah to bless your wealth and your home and grant you security in this dunya and after May
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow us to be from those who maintain what is the necessity of our deen in all affairs, Allah? May Allah guide your heart to that which will please you in this life in the next May Allah assist you and your family in all of your affairs ultimately, I mean, we have a question also that has been shared
Is it permissible to take medication to stop prevent your menstruation for the purpose of Ramadan, Umrah, Hajj, this is a contentious issue most of the of Al Imam Muhammad accept that this is an accepted circumstance if there is no harm upon the upon the person taking the medicine. So there are hormonal treatments that can allow a person to change their menstrual cycle to you know, bring it to an end for a certain period of time. If you are intending or Murrah My dear sister, and you're thinking of this, I would recommend doing it at least two months in advance, what happens normally is that you will take these pills for a certain period of time. And then at your normal menstrual
cycle, you will begin developing spotting, which then will confuse you and you will say to yourself, well, what am I supposed to do now? Is this menstrual is this fresh blood? How do I deal with it and it can cause a greater level of anxiety. So if you're going to commit to this, then do this to at least two cycles in advance to avoid this hardship and difficulty and ambiguity in sha Allah. But in general, yes, it is permitted unless you are directed by a doctor not to take it because of particular circumstances for yourself. Definitely take medical advice before you do. Inshallah, we have a caller on the line so that they can call How can I help?
Just a follow up
regarding the sixth
house purchase. Now, what I wanted to clear up is if you've
explained all these years, you bought the house, that mortgage be permissible
in conventional conventional mortgage, what
Just like, my dear brother, I've never heard of a fixed mortgage that extends to such a significant period of time, I'd rather not use the word mortgage in that sense in a conventional banking sense. So I'll bring it back to a simpler example. If a person was to say Shecky, I would like to purchase your phone. I know it costs $1,000. For example, I can't afford $1,000. Now, I would like to pay $1,100 Over the next 11 months $100 a month. Because you know it's going to extend so we fix the amount even though it's greater than the amount of the phone. So we fix it instead of it being 1000 we fix and agree that it's going to be 1100. And that will now pay the full amount. And the
agreement is for the full term. There's not going to be a renegotiation halfway through Hey, the phone is devalued. It's now 500,000 I don't want my I don't want the phone anymore, I'm giving it back to you know, your commitment is for the full amount. Whether you retain it or not, whether it gets broken or lost or not. The 1100 is a set amount that's the contract that is permitted within our Sharia in sha Allah for so an increase in the value is not the problem as long as it's acknowledged in the beginning. And as long as there is a fixed you know, capacity to continue the payments until the very end. This is seen by many of them as being acceptable in sha Allah, where it
becomes problematic is that the value is not finalized. And then there is a renegotiation and it increases again, and again already values and increases and that is where we find ourselves
Elgin in places that we do not want to be
in our shelter and also in our financial interests. We're lucky to have had
a follow up question has come in through the written Service said Imani come, I was going
oh, we have another caller. Okay, so I'm Anakin caller How can I help?
I said I'm on ECAM call it how can I
just have a simple question.
As a Muslim,
okay to know how
to not have a beard.
Yes, Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam o Allah Rasool did that sub Allahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he spoke about the importance of a man displaying physically, outwardly their masculinity, and also distinguishing themselves from other faith traditions that were found at the time of the prophet Isaiah. So one of the statements of the prophets I send them was, he said, to
make sure that you allow your facial hair to grow. And make sure that you trim your mustache, don't let it overhang your lips don't let it grow. While high definition again was highly for Alia Buddha owner surah, in different narrations be distinct from those who are policy adjusts in your attire, in your religious outlook, in your mode of prayer, and be different to those who are of the people of the book so that there's no confusion. Is he a Muslim? Or is he a Christian? Or is he a Jew in that sense, where people were still coming to learn about Islam? So the prophets I send them gives a command about men, outgrowing their facial area ministry allowing it to grow, where there is dispute
is, is it something that has to be left alone entirely? And do you have to just grow your beard out? We know that there were Sahaba, who trimmed their beard, Abdullah Yama, he would trim the beard after hands. And that was seen as his personal judgment. He doesn't say this is what the Prophet ordered me to do. So I Salam, there's nothing in terms of the prophets order in that regard. Ali mama shelter is the most lacks in his extent of the understanding of the beard, he determined that it could be up to the length that the person wills and wishes for it to have, according to their job, according to whatever it is that they're doing. According to their disposition.
It is important to have the outward markings of a Muslim in that sense, and to make ourselves known. And it is important that we show that the good character that we have the ethics that we have the morality that we have is not just because I'm a good person, but it's because I'm a good person because my Islam, so having something as men and women is something that is a good thing to have in Chatelet is it? Is it punishable by a law for a person to not have a beard? The answer is no. Unless they're doing it in defiance of Mohammed. So I said that I will never have a beard because the Prophet had a beard. So I said, for example, you know, having that kind of contrite heart where a
person is seeking to contradict and to devalue the importance of the prophets. I send them and assume that that is where the problem is. It's not in the facial hair itself. Well luck with that. May Allah grant us stability and growth and healing and assist us all to meet our obligations before Allah azza wa jal I hope you will continue with me after this short break in sha Allah when we return to Islam channel Islamic q&a. It's your brother Yeah, hi, Brahim. I'll be back in a few minutes evening lovely to hear that Subhana Allah Mohammed decrescendo let stuff we'll look at why to avoid a crusader Malik.
All right, for those of you on my social media Marsha, last question came up. I was like, I'll let you know during the break. Just like
it's up to you if you want. I will and shall I just like a normal fit for those of us?
In trauma, important thing, I mean, I don't know you can dress we'll see how we deal with that. And Michelle,
for those who are listening, live on my social media means I'm happy to take your questions now live in sha Allah. We have a question here a family struggles, but does technically
a family struggles but does technically maintain the nisab for one whole year Kansa cars still be given to the family? No, if they are above the rate of nisab and they are obligated to give the car then they should give their own Zika and or not.
legible to receive the cat in sha Allah. They are eligible for sadaqa but not to receive as a cat in that sense. All right, we have let's see other questions on the Instagram feed. Feel free to drop them in in sha Allah. I know many of you are actively listening and let us know where you're listening from in shot lot.
All right on YouTube and Facebook. Let's take a look. Sister No, I've just committed many sins in the past I've repented but constantly remember that every day and it makes me depressed. Will I ever be able to move forward? Well, sister Anna, may Allah subhanaw taala grant your Hiram Baraka, there are three steps for redemption, right three steps for redemption, you've already achieved one of them, which is self accountability, self awareness of one's indiscretions. So if your acknowledgment is Oh Allah, I know what I've done wrong. I know where I've done something in the past that has Dishonored me or has, you know, put me in a place where I feel now that I'm asking You for Your
Mercy. That's the first step self awareness. Many people haven't gotten there. Many people are like, I don't care. I don't care what people think I am, what I am, this is how it is. And that's it. Number two, is now self regulation. It's not about how am I going to, you know, undo the past. It's how do I regulate the future? What are the things that I need to do now to escape falling into some of those previous problems? And probably one of the reason one of the reasons why you feel depressed is you haven't worked out to a solution of how to undo that. And one of the best ways to undo that is within yourself. You come to that point where you recognize Allah's Mercy is so great that Allah
subhanho wa Taala he says to us that if you were to feel the heavens and the earth with sins, and you approached me asking for forgiveness, I will forgive you. This is Allah subhanaw taala. So uplift your spirit, know that if you have acknowledged your past, acknowledge your mistake, and now you're regulating your present, you are eliminating the bad elements you are not going to these places where you had problems you are focusing on a brighter future than this will lead you to prosperity third, third in your psychology of redemption, in your mindset of redeeming yourself is self sacrifice. What am I going to do to make up the past? You know, what charity will I give? What
prayers will I make? What do I mind making? Continue to make Oh ALLAH forgive me from the depth of my heart? You know, what are these little things that I'm going to do that may feel better that made me feel heard? So don't just assume you know, I feel bad about it. I feel depressed about it. That's enough. And net Thermotoga regret is the beginning of October. But now commit yourself in sha Allah to doing good deeds in lemon tab. Except for those who regret and come back to Allah What am and believes that they will be forgiven believes that Allah's Mercy is great. Why Mina, Saudi, and in their place, they do good deeds to wipe out that record. So my dear sister push forward with good
deeds, you're asking, Will I ever be able to move forward? It is what are you going to do to put before Allah subhanaw taala? What are you What do you intend on showing? So it can be as simple as asking Allah for forgiveness? You know, all of that is blessing. All right, we're going back to our live feed in sha Allah.
hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah salam ala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we're back. It's good to have you back with us for Islamic q&a. I'm your brother. Yeah. Hey, Rahim. Coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia. There's some interesting questions that have come through in the different streams and I wanted to share with you a few of them insha Allah. One question is asking at Santa Monica is it allowed for a woman to travel to Aurora without a male accompanying guardian, I would really like to join some of the tours that are being offered. And now there is it depends on where you're traveling from who you're traveling with.
These kinds of considerations of the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about men and women traveling and women traveling are seen as being different to men traveling on accompany. There are certain times you know, with the COVID and the pandemic and all of the things that we've kind of seen and the upheaval in the airports and plane cancellations and lost luggage and you know, there are
You know those kinds of considerations that need to be made depending on where you live, who you're traveling with, what insurance levels are provided, what assurances are provided by your airlines and your tour group and so on. I would say and I believe you know, the Hadith of the prophets, I send them he foretells that there will come a time where a woman would travel from Yemen to perform hajj on her own and accompany so it wasn't something you know, it's not the Prophet recommending it's isolated, but he sees that this time will come where there will be relative assurances that are provided. If you are traveling with a reputable company that has a good track record that has female
chaperones, if you are traveling and they and you explain to them your circumstances where you're coming from and they feel confident, to take on the trust of you traveling with them, then I see it as being something that is permissible in sha Allah, wa Allahu Allah, Allah Allah, but it is not a qualified yes or no without those details. And I encourage you in sha Allah to find those who are righteous company there are also SR own their own rock groups that are going with reputable processes and there are, you know,
assistants who can help with that. Even in some of the tours that I lead, we make sure come to rely we have a sister who is accompany some of our and some of our daughters and those who are traveling with us as an Amana in sha Allah. We have a caller on the line as Salam Alikum caller How can I help
it's good to hear your voice again, my uncle.
I'm trying to memorize them.
But I find that
a standard in the way to
celebrate television they show I want to rhyme them as to
rearrange them and try revenge, remember? Or am I or is it sort of, I'm obligated to
keep them as the order
the benefit of it I've earned is it correct? If you remember all the names
the file will be protected and what protects all of us from His from the inequities of our scenes?
So to answer your question, I will add a couple of layers to it. So the first issue is, you know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is recorded in both Bihari and Muslims and authentic hadith undoubtable that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala has has 99 particular names that are known to Allah. So these 99 names are known to Allah, Allah has more than 99 names. So there's lots of books that gather the names of Allah from the Quran, from the hadith of the prophet Isaiah, some of the Imams have listed 600, and plus names that are taken from the word of Allah, taken from the hadith of the prophet Isaiah. Out of them, there are 99 that Allah knows. And there isn't an
authentic hadith that lists them out in a way that it is only it could only be those 99. So there's a hadith narrated by Al Imam and Timothy where he says that these are, these could be the 99. And this is why the arrangement where you're asking, Can I make a rearrangement? The answer is yes, it's not static. It's not from the Quran in that sense, that it has to be this one before this one before this one. There's no issue with that in sha Allah. Number two, the concept of gathering the names of Allah is understood by their roadmap to mean that a person puts them into practice. So I come to learn that Allah is a man, he is the compassionate Merciful One who is limitless in that compassion,
who in his mercy, pain in can be filled in Betterment for my condition. So Allah's mercy may cause me in a certain point, to lose something that I want, but it's actually not good for me and out of Allah's mercy, Allah removes it sometimes painfully from my life. It could be a marriage that is, you know, brought to divorce or whatever it may be. It's changed my circumstance out of Allah's mercy. So the most
Mercy of Allah becomes a quality that I try to hold into myself. So I want to be Rockman as well. So I look around into the world how can I show mercy to others? This is how we capture the names of Allah into our life. So try to accumulate as many of the names of Allah in your ethics in your in your behavior in your Outlook be crushed man as l Rama
be him as Allah is al Rahim is the Al Karim, the generous Allah is the most generous, trying to be generous, be Allah is Allah was out the provider, the Sustainer, the one who gives us a risk, see somebody who could perhaps use some of your risk in that sense that you can be a provider for others. So having that mentality is what is meant by fulfilling that hadith along with learning the names of Allah and their implementation and meaning. We have a question coming in from Canada. So I'm only from color.
To chef, I'm calling from Toronto, it's good to hear from you. It's nice to hear a Canadian voice in Australia.
So chef in the past year and Hamdulillah, I've been practicing the game seriously. But before that the years before that I didn't have the best company and I wasn't really practicing. And
I also didn't have the best character with people. I do believe sometimes I have a short temper and I was harsh with my words and also engaged in backlighting. Now, I have a lot of regret and who's led to learning the Quran and the Sunnah about having good character with others, it's caused me to lose relationships with people and I've tried to make amends. But I constantly have negative thoughts from the past, especially when I'm doing like a brother and a shirtless with with the position on but I have this guilty feeling, that I'm not a good person, that
maybe my good deeds won't be accepted and just constantly feeling that feeling of guilt, although I've tried to get them
just don't know if I can ever forgive myself. So you can have any words that could help
the law he will lock in my dear sister, and Hamdulillah that you are not your own judge Alhamdulillah that is Allah who is behind me Alhamdulillah that it is Allah who is the master of Maliki and within the Master of our church Alhamdulillah that you know the word of the prophets I send them that we believe in is true, that you know you and I we will receive this little passport, this little license on the Day of Judgment, that on account of your commitment to La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah acknowledging your mistake, acknowledging your error, that you're giving this word La ilaha illallah that with your balance on one side full of sin, that that word of la ilaha
illallah your commitment to wanting to become a better person, Roger, it will overwhelm the mistakes that you and I have haphazardly, erroneously sinfully even chose choosing we have made the Mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah covers all things in Ramadan was you had Kula che che is a thing and all of our sins are part of those things. Every sin you and I made. It is a part of that. I gave a seminar last weekend in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. It's titled A sinner in Jannah. You can find an online process to listen to it and benefit from it. I highly recommend it because I want you to know that the prophets like Selim, speaking to us about sinners who found themselves in Jannah, who found
themselves in the Mercy of Allah that other human beings would not have given them that place other human beings would not have favored them with his mercy. Do not ever hold yourself down. Do not ever feel that there is anything that you have done, that cannot be expunged, forgiven and changed and removed from your record on account of just one request from a sincere heart. Oh Allah give me a better day than my yesterday. Give me a better start than my yesterday. It's Allah who said that if you take one step to him, he will walk to you he will run to you. If you take one step he will take 10 towards a Subhan Allah to Allah, it is Allah who is jacobellis Toba and anybody who is the one

Can you tell a powerful Hadith on child bereavement that enormous of the struggle and the enormous of the rewarded child loved my happy, healthy, beautiful five year old boy itself that has been I was diagnosed with a brain tumor last year and seven weeks later, on the fourth of October 2021 Key passed away.

Know that the Mercy of
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is that he sent us a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who experienced all of the pain and trauma that we have experienced. Your Nebby Mohammed SiteSell is your precedent. What a great sunnah that you have endured that Subhan Allah and this time I have not yet been tested with. But imagine that you have lived a sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu ala you ascend them that others have not, may Allah protect us in our children in our homes. I don't wish it for myself or anybody else or for you to face the game. But you are in a league of the prophets of Allah, the messengers of Allah. Mohammed sigh Salam is the one who held his son in his hand in his
arms. He's the one who's tears streaming down his face, feeling his beer to the point that the Sahaba around them they said, Maha they are rasool Allah, what is this condition we find you in a messenger of Allah, he said in the heart Rama, this is the Mercy of Allah that He puts in the heart. And he said in the line and Tenma that the heart eyes are welled up with tears with unbelievers and in the pain of the heart is true. It will never depart My dear sister and it's a healing to have in your pain this love for your child may Allah reunite you and him in Jana. May Allah uplift you to the highest levels to be with him in Jana Allahumma me and my brother and my sister may Allah
subhana wa Tada allow you to focus on the others in your family in give them your due diligence and your duty as a way of gathering all in Jana Allah I mean, listen to these two Hadith of the prophets I seldom on the day of surah in that authentic hadith I remember Buhari the Prophet SAW Prophet Ibrahim, looking after young children at the gate of the first heaven entrance into Jannah. The Prophet said Who What is he doing? And they said he looks after the young Muslim children until the Day of Judgment their souls until their parents are really reunited with them, who lead them into Janna. A second powerful Hadith there was a man in the time of the prophets I seldom who love this
son, and he would bring his son yes have a windmill, God would hold his son's hand bringing him to the masjid with and one day the Prophet returned from a journey didn't see the man in prayer didn't see the young boy who at times would ride on the back of the Prophet dice and live in prayer. So the Prophet asked about him and they said, Matt, I want to do his son die for habits and epsa
He became so depressed, so sad that he's locked himself in his home, hasn't gone out, doesn't eat doesn't be a messenger of Allah. He's just turned away from all of us even from Allah in a sense. So the Prophet knocked on his door. And the man said to the prophets, I sell them in my heart is a sadness. Allah has taken from me, this this the apple of my cabinet that have already the strength of my kidney, the strength of my loins has departed me on Messenger of Allah, the prophets I send them said that when Allah takes a child from their parents, Allah look through their hearts and send the angels to ask, what did they say, in this moment of difficulty? And the angels they say, how
about the chaos, that the parents they said, Alhamdulillah Allah Hoolahan we remain praising and thankful to Allah in all of our conditions. Allah then orders the angels to build a house in Ghana, and mentioned real estate in general land in Jannah. And Allah says, some more vital hand label it with the label of this is the home the abode, the mention of those who are praising to Allah in their difficulty.
And Allah then says, cause for their son, to wait for them at the door of agenda, that he will hold them by the hand to lead them to this door when they returned to me. May Allah subhanho wa Taala and you know, remove your anguish and your grief May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow you to celebrate the days you had together. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make your loss reason for your gain in the dunya and Africa will also hand over to Allah re Institute Rama in his place in this life and in Jannah Allahumma Amin May Allah subhanho wa Taala uplift you and make you an example of sub righteous endurance in perseverance and prosperity until you return and are returned to your son in the next
life. Allah Ameen. We are a believing OMA that believes that there is more to this life than what we see. There is more to this experience than what we have in the short 60 7080 years. We are an OMA that believes in an eternal soul and your soul and that of your sudden are linked forever. You are soulmates and will never be detached by the mercy of Allah. May Allah subhana wa Tada grant you subgrid healing and coolness May Allah subhanho wa Taala uplift you to Allah. I mean
it is always
a great remember reminder to those of us who hear of the difficulties visited upon others. It allows us to appreciate and hamdulillah the blessings that remain with us the tests that remain with us, and also allows us to acknowledge that there are far others who are more superior to us in their relationship with Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala make this husband and wife, the father and mother of South Abraham not to lie only those who are examples for you and I, the prophets I seldom said take advantage of five things before they depart. Take advantage of your health before your illness of your wealth before your loss of some of it. Take advantage of your life before your death of your
free time before you get busy. Take advantage of you know the blessings of Allah azza wa jal take advantage of your your young children before they grow old. Take advantage of your parents before they are no longer your life. My dear brother, my dear sister take advantage of of what blessings Allah has provided us in this dunya May Allah make it reason for our forgiveness, expiation and greatness in the Day of Judgment along mean the messenger behind minutes is seldom experienced and was visited by more pain and trauma than you and I and not home that could ever withstand somewhere in law and he was so he married not one but five children peace and blessings be upon the prophets I
seldom he was a person who was used as an example for you and I have what it means to find something and resoluteness in our relationship with Allah. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to join olmesartan and AppleSoft with and whenever you Mohamed SiteSell in the highest levels of genuine on account of him losing Ibrahim and Raha Jana
Salah and Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam May Allah subhanho wa Taala join them with him on account of their departure of Salford from their life, that they will be rekindled and reunited in January. There was a lot more meaning out of that.
I wanted to end up
obsession insha Allah with the reminder of the Hadith of the prophets, I send them. I began by speaking about the importance of travel, and the prophets. I send them he says, he dunya and never very, I will have very savvy, living this life as if you are a strange visitor, or somebody who's on a journey. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah make us of those who travel this world, not so comfortable that we want to build permanency at that extent, that we forget about the true experience of the epsilon. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those who look about us in this world, recognizing its beauty and its features and the people that we enjoy being in it, but recognizing
that our true home and our final destination is with Allah, Matt Vela raffia, will add in the final three words of the prophet Isaiah, rather the high company, the company of Allah in the agenda to insure themselves may Allah grant us an outlook on life, a mindset that allows us to live life with healing and cleanliness and happiness that we are able to return to Allah at any moment. The prophets I sent him when he would be just about to lead the prayer. At times he would make the reminder.

May Allah Subhana Allah allow us to take advantage of the blessings of life and health and wealth and family until we
