I mean, it's an honor and a privilege and hamdulillah to begin our live calling session with you. And this is a live call in session. There are questions that do come in through the WhatsApp services and email. But we do love to hear your voice as you come online, in sha Allah, and do let us know from where you're watching around the world. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to accept it from all of us will begin with some of the questions that have already been delivered to us in sha Allah. One of the questions asked about the fasting of the six
days of Chawan is it reported from the prophets of Allah it was sitting in the authentic hadith of the prophets why Selim narrated in the Sahaba books, Imam Muslim and others, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man sama Ramadan, well, that will sit them in Sure well, but the one who fasts the month of Ramadan, who has begun the first of the month of Ramadan, and in the coming months after the month of Ramadan has ended, and tobacco follows up the fasting that is done in Ramadan with more fasting in the month of Shawwal. With six days basic than six days in Chihuahua Cana Casselman. It is as if they have completed the fasting of the year, and the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam in sharing these words. It is a recommendation to fast any six days in the month of Sure, well, Neruda, they have different positions and different opinions about which of the six days are more preferred, but none of them were itemized by the prophets I send them. This is just from the HD had and the willful understanding, and the expert opinions of experts have and Hadith, but they are not the word of the prophets. I send them they are interpretations, and therefore it is open. Well, I'm Rafi hit this app, you can fast immediately after the days have either come to an end. We of course do not fast on the day read, but you can immediately begin fasting soon after some
people had the habit of fasting in all six days, one after another. Others had the habit of breaking them apart. There are some who used to fast Mondays and Thursdays to gain the reward of the Monday and Thursday. sunnah faster the prophets I seldom, there are others who also fasted Mondays and Thursdays and the full moon days that I EMP is where the moon is at its brightest and its fullest. The 13th 14th and 15th of the month are
But show well, all of those are narrated from different actions of aroma and so haven't intervene in various moments and in areas, another contentious issue that at times arises is can we fast? In the month of Shawwal? If we have not completed the month of Ramadan, and and can we fast? If, for example, there are days missing?
From our fast It could be due to illness, it could be due to travel, it could be due to a sister's menstrual cycle. All of those are issues that at times can arise, and that can cause somebody not to have completed the entire month of Ramadan. Does that mean they have to complete Ramadan? And then fast the six days? Or can they be done in conjunction, and now that they might have a variety of opinions that relates to this, the most basic opinion and the opinion that I see as being closer to the understanding of just the common understanding of the words of the prophets. All he says is that he says the one WHO Fast Six days now he doesn't itemize whether the six days are in lieu of other
days, he just says six days full of love or it was. So this could mean that they could be days where you're fasting super fast, you're fasting nefler fast or even according to some of the older man, like Le Mamod, Potamia, Lima Malik that they are making up days of that you had missed and you rightfully need to make up. And this is an opinion that is relieved back to some of the taboo in and some of the Sahaba of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the more common understanding however, it's found in two opinions, that you should make up your fast and then do six days or make the six days into well and make up the days of Ramadan any other time in the remainder
of the year.
All three opinions have their different evidence and their merit. I like to keep it open in general, that if you fast six days and chill Well, irrespective of what those days were, that the joint intention is something that can be valid, but your primary intention is for making up your days that you had missed in Ramadan, but they so coincide with your fasting inside the month of show well, because you could have made those six days just that you Oh, eight days or seven days you could have made them in the month of Rajab, in the next year in Hyderabad or whatever it may be before the next coming Ramadan. But you intentionally chose to watch or when seeking the baraka of that statement of
the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is another additional issue that relates to this as well, which is did the Prophet himself facet Salah and he would send him now there isn't direct evidence that the prophets I send them fasted which particular days until well, so there's no Hadith with a shot with the Allah and her or nsmt Malik or Abdullah Yama, they say the Prophet facet inshallah Well, on the fourth of June Well, the eighth of Chawan there is no statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said fast on Monday and Thursday, but we know his common habit and perhaps this is why it was not really
his common habit in each and every month was that he fasted Mondays and Thursdays, he fasted the 1314 and 15. So because the prophets simply said Fast Six days he's fasted more than six, the Sahaba didn't itemize which of the six they were because it was not something necessary. The Prophet fasted more than six days in each and every month. So is it necessary for them to win? Which days because he did not only fast six days and that's important, the property sell and didn't say only Fast Six days in Sure, well, is that fast, any of the six days that you find convenient for you in that sense? So that's one of the reasons why we don't see which days in particular were fostered by the
Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ala Allahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam. Another important blessing is that the Prophet doesn't tell us which days because he does not want it to become a stringent sunnah upon us that can become an obligation. And you see this in the character of the prophets are excellent. For example, in Torah, we're the only led the Sahaba three days and after the third day, he did not come out of his home and lead them in prayer. He'd read on his own. He continued with his own rebellion, he left everybody to do what they could were either a model to completion in fact to be humans prefer to when I bring the recommendation to you do as much of it as you can. And when
they asked, Why didn't you join us on Messenger of Allah? Why didn't you lead us in prayer? He said, some Allah Allah He was salam that I feared that if I came and lead you in prayer, that it would be rich.
In upon you for that salah. And I could envision this as being a mercy from the prophets. I seldom that he doesn't mention to us which days and that he doesn't make it a consistent path where he passed in particular these days of Chawan so that it does not become an obligation upon his ummah. Some Allahu alayhi wa salam, we have our first caller on the line, a Salam Alikum caller How can I help?
a Christian is
women went to gym, obviously they get the reward
client to the women
that live to them as well.
does that come up here for that? Question? It's an important question. I'm just going to paraphrase it and maybe expand it a little bit. Dear sister, do Muslim women, are they obligated to pray? Joomla? If they do pray Joomla as a voluntary act of worship, are they rewarded for it? If they don't pray Juma for a need or for a reason? And their intention was they wanted to pray will they be rewarded for that? And if they give up their spot in a masjid, for example, that overflows with men who it is obligated for? Can they earn greater reward for not coming to the gym or than actually attending the gym on so all of those questions will try to answer Inshallah, I think one of the
important questions is yes, absolutely. You are rewarded for any activity by that you do that conforms to the tradition and significant prophets I send them and number two, that is done with sincerity to Allah in the muslimeen I will mostly Matt will mean I will mean that Allah always speaks about the believing men and the believing women, the Muslim men, the Muslim women, those who pray and mostly mean a Sadat and those who establish their prayer Allah joins them again together as an act where II they both stand before Allah azza wa jal number two we know that at the time of the prophet Isaiah Lim women pray Jumeirah with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam In fact, in the
hadith of Imam Muslim, the very reason a pulpit was designed for the Prophet to stand on the member to stand three steps above those who were seated was because one of the women of the unsolved she said to the Prophet sorry Salam, O Messenger of Allah, the Masjid is so full, and from the back with the men seated, I find it difficult to see you. If I got one of my employees or my servants to build a pulpit for you Would you stand on it so we can see you from the back? And he said yes. And since then, it is a sunnah to stand on a member when giving the hotswap so we have evidence from the Sunnah, that women attended the Juma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do women? Is it a
must for them as it is a must for men? And the answer is no. It is an action that is voluntary on their behalf. But it is an obligation upon every able bodied, non traveling Muslim male, to attend the Juma prayers when it is established in their city or in their locality. And finally, if there is a masjid, for example, that is local to us, but runs out of space in joumana. And our Muslim sisters are able to, for example, listen to the sermon online or to watch a video of it and give up their space, for example, in the winter months, or in raining months, or when it's really hot in the summer for the men to be able to fulfill their obligation, and they give up their space voluntarily,
for the pleasure of Allah wanting the reward from Allah, can they attain higher rewards than having simply done the prayer? And the answer is yes. Because the knee of facilitating ease and comfort for other people to perform their activity by that is a phenomenal reward with Allah subhanaw taala Allah says in the Quran, if so, who you have said Hilda who like you make room for each other Allah who will make room for you in sha Allah Jana. So when you make that room, it's an honor that you give to yourself even though you may not be fulfilling the prayer in and of itself. In that moment, you are fulfilling in your act of devotion with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that will be rewarded
in even in sha Allah, greater levels, that if you were to pray, in the masjid in sha Allah, we have our first break in sha Allah and we'll return to you soon after. Oh.
Oh Ma sha Allah just like him Allah have so we haven't hamdulillah evident from the Sunnah of the Prophet sorry, seldom of being able to facilitate if there is room for the sisters to pray, but if there isn't
But then it is preferred for them to abdicate and to give space for those who it is necessary to take their fulfillment of their Salah Insha Allah, just like Allah here for that question, I think it is of great benefit to everyone. Finally, I'll return to the initial question that was emailed in to us. And just to tie up the concept of the prayers of Chawan. And the fasting and chill Well, the reward of it is multiplied by 10. Every action we do as an act of worship is multiplied by 10. So if you fast six days in a row, well, that gives you 60 has an ad and 30 of Ramadan are the 29th of Ramadan and Allah is generous, they increase in the reward to include the whole year. Now I want you
to kind of think about that. Some days in the month some months in the life of the prophets I seldom Ramadan was 29 days others were 30. What you don't find the prophets I said, Let me saying fast seven days to make up for the one day that was missing in Ramadan, the concept of Ramadan wasn't necessarily it had to be 30 plus 60, or 300 reward plus 16 reward equals 360. The concept of it is that Ramadan in general, if you fasted it, if you had the intention as a Muslim to fasted, you get the reward of it, even if there are days to be made up later. And then six days into while you have the conscious effort of continuing that tradition and fasting in the month of Chawan, you will gain
its magnificent reward. So for my sisters, for example, or those who are traveling or sick and have recovered, fast and six days of Chawan, seek your reward from Allah, you can make up your other days after you can make them concurrent with each other, or you can do them first and then six days all three positions are referenced in the life and the habits of the virtuous scholars of our faith. May Allah accept from them. And us Allahumma Amin, we have some other questions that have been sent to us in sha Allah that we will take a look at. I woke up a little bit late.
Sorry, it says I woke up a bit late a few minutes before bed and I quickly observed my winter was it valid? Allah subhanaw taala is the most generous and the most giving. In fact, if you were a regular habit of praying with and you didn't pray with until the sun rose, or even at the time of Doha, it is accepted. And this happened to remember Bill subhabrata The Allahu Anhu he said, O Messenger of Allah, I wasn't able to complete my wit, I was overcome by sleep, I woke up prayed my budget with you, and I haven't done it, what should I do and the Prophet recommends to him. So I said, Look at the you know, do it now. And the prophets I said, teaches us that Allah Subhana Allah is generous in
that sense. It's not a must for you to make it up but if you do, because you have a good track record with it, and you want it to keep that perfect track record, then do it even if it is in the next day. It is honored for you even if it's after the sun rose, honor Allah subhanho wa Taala within what exactly is the Sunnah of the or when exactly is the Sunnah of the Jew.
And the concept of Sunnah prayer is what is between us then once upon this is the concept of assumed and more accurate. So there are 12 Raka, 12 Raka, that are confirmed constant behavioral prayers of the prophets I send them that are outside the five daily prayers. And those 12 bar tool raka before fetcher. So once that and then a fetcher the true and then eventually there are two methods for failure. There's one that warns you fetch it was coming 3040 minutes before and then there is the event of the actual failure to prayer. The one who prays after that second Vegeta then, and they pray two rakaat before the comma, it is a sumo accident. The next is between the Advan of Salah to
book, and a comment that is that call to stand up for the prayer of the there is poor raka that were done by the prophets I send them as a regular habit. So beloved, would make the Adan the prophet would pray for Raka usually in his home before coming out to leave the Sahaba in prayer, but at times also in the masjid. And then after the vulgar prayer, the prophet would pray to more Raka and those two raka were usually done in his home, but sometimes also done in the masjid by him salAllahu alayhi wasallam so now we have eight that we perform to before fetch for before the two after the
the next set is to raka after salatu metric and to raka after Salah toilet Risha. So in general, the Sunnah prayers
Uppsala to vote are between the examine the employment for Raka and to raka after the prayer anytime there is sunnah that is before the Salah, it's between Adam and a comma. Anytime that there is sunnah it is after the prayer even if it is an hour or so later. You can pray the Sunnah it does not have to be immediately after the Salah. Sometimes we have busy lives or we need to go or pick something up or do something. When you come back to it, you can pray it before the next prayer arrives before the next prayer arrives. So the two rakaat of Salah to Booker is sunnah at the end of the solder shouldn't be done before Salah to La so the time or the time where it's dislike to pray
in the declination and the setting of the sun. If you have a bereavement a death just before eat, how should you celebrate the day Islamically the day of Eid is a day of celebration. It is the concept of celebration is not necessarily a party. And I think people misunderstand the word read, which means Yeah, good. Something that returns to you cyclically, as a religious observance. They associate the concept of green as necessarily something that returns to you and then you have a party. That's not the meaning of it. That's why people get confused with things like birthday parties and so on. They say you know, we only have to, you know, to read means two days where we
celebrate the worship of Allah after having done and maintained your activity by them. Notice that our days of Eid are after Ramadan and after Hajj. These are the two great extended days and weeks of worshipping of Allah. So once we have finished them we celebrate by worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada we gather together and congratulate each other in it. We dress in nicer clothing, we have some nicer food, we share our prosperity with others, and we enjoy each other's company. But it does not necessarily mean that we go overboard with a party atmosphere. And there is no problem with us celebrating your eID even though there was a tragedy in the family by doing this soon as ever, you
waking up in the morning early, making our ticket view doing our Salah in congregation and making sure that we perfume ourselves and give comfort to those who are with us in that bereavement. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us how you and Baraka we're going to have our short break intermission for the salah to look at then in London and return back to you shortly in sha Allah hear from you that was set Mr. Equal Warahmatullah
Zach moolah here for those of you who are listening online with me on my social media streams, I'll take some of your questions for those on Instagram you can use the question section at the bottom of your screen. All right, we got a question so now um, please check your DMS my friend nice and DNS about okay, seeking in Australia. I'll do my best to look into that in sha Allah. I pray using a large prayer shawl.
So it covers my hands while I pray is that okay? It is okay. It is not a necessity that the hands should be covered. In fact it is assumed not to leave your hands uncovered but if the shoal covers them not out of intention meaning you're not wearing gloves you're not trying to cover your hands at then it's acceptable so if you have you know your femur, your hands should be outside we don't cover our face and our hands in our prayer. This is taught to us by I would never you Muhammad Sallallahu aleyhi or any he was happy he was sending him All right, let's see if there are any other questions that have come through and if there aren't, just send them through inshallah. All right, but allow
me nomenclatures akmola Feb. If there are questions Do send them through whether on YouTube or Facebook or LinkedIn and so on. We'll do our best with them in sha Allah. Another question has come in.
Is it true that God curses the single woman that pluck shapes or changes the shape of her eyebrow? Could you please help me understand this hadith because it has caused a lot of struggle for my faith. All right, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us all firmness and stability Allahumma Amin, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at first is to understand what do we mean by eyebrows? So this
his area in the middle of the forehead is not referred to as an eyebrow. It's called the ladder. And this is excluded from that statement that you're referring to the prophets I said, where the prophet said, Allah's curse comes upon those anomalous how will you know?
The one who removes hair or tattoos themselves and the one who does it for them? The reason this statement was done is that there was a particular style that was done in Medina, where it indicated to people that this was a woman of the night that she used to give her body over for men for profit. So the prophets I send them says that the one who resembles that who does that attitude who shapes their face or puts up beauty marks in a way that indicates to others I'm a person of looser morals and unavailable for financial gain and giving myself over to you. That is what was being condemned by the Prophet Mohammed sigh Salam, however, removing hair from an area that is unnatural for women,
in according to the beauty standards of the Muslim community where a person lives is not detestable. So if somebody has hair in a place, that is unnatural for women to have it, it's beyond what is acceptable. For women to have it, there is no problem for them to remove it in sha Allah, in particular in the middle of the brow, areas that are near the irises and the eyelids and things of that, that was never condemned within the tradition. We're speaking about very particular things that the prophets are SLM was trying to cure within the social ills of the people of Al Madina, Munawwara May Allah increase us in understanding a lot? I mean, nevertheless, I wanted to take the
second part of your question where you said that it was causing trouble with your faith. These are things that are not attributes of faith. These are attributes of practice. And I want for all of us in sha Allah to understand that Allah subhana wa Tada is merciful and giving an Clement and loving and that our faith is a demonstration of our willingness to be from those who hear and obey. So even when something is troubling you your necessary responsibility is to ask which hamdulillah Allah has led you to doing? May Allah subhanaw taala comfort us with answers that are provided for us in sha Allah? If you receive a question and an answer that doesn't settle with you and you need to ask
another person, ask and ask and ask for Allah vicar. Allah uses an open statement to continue to ask the people who remind you of the remembrance of God in quantum data and the moon until you come to learn if you are unaware of the truth, do women need to pray with socks or
or ankle bone covered? Is it okay? There is no statement of the prophets I send them obligating women to wear socks. In fact, when the wife of the Prophet sallallaahu, the Allahu Anhu mentioned that to the Prophet, I said them, He did not say that women are to wear socks, he just simply said, Let their dress laying hanging a little bit lower to cover the top of their feet. So you don't need to wear sock in your soda. There is nothing in the Sunnah that declares this even though it can be recommended by some Imams, but the top of the foot you know should have you know your dress or whatever it is that you're wearing, hang loosely in it that it obscures it. It shouldn't be
something that is just left uncovered. In that sense, inside and outside solid. The only Imams that allow it outside salah is a mother will remember But honey for all three Imams and Imam Muhammad Ali mama sherfield Imam Malik, they see that the top of the foot of our sisters should have some veiling Insha Allah, not at a beautification and so on, but out of conformity to the words of the prophets I send them to his wife on masala Marathi hola como and what? We're going to be going back live shortly to our q&a in sha Allah you can hang with us there in sha Allah
and if there are other questions on the social media do continue sending them I will refer to them as well and
that you know
Five seconds to Bama.
98765321 June, like I said, I'm on equal mental life of a cattle and hamdulillah Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Salam O Allah, Allah, he was seldom well that welcome back to Islamic q&a. It's a pleasure and having to do that to receive you once again, with your live questions on air in sha Allah. Please do forward the mean and we'll continue with some of the questions that have arrived to us. While we were waiting through the social media screens and so on.
We have a question that asks What is the ruling on reading the best minute saying Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim before sort of 1030 and should Imams recite it out loud?
It is the general statement of NSEP Malik about the Allahu Anhu found in so Aiken Buhari that he said I prayed at times behind the prophets I seldom I prayed behind a bulwark and the remote and Earth man and I did not hear any of them yet Jehovah investment I did not hear any of them be excessively loud in saying Bismillah Hawkman Rahim Al Imam Shafi his madhhab is that it should be said. Now the reason an imam Shafi is meant to have has the best manner as being a necessity is because that era that Imam Shafi one of the known re citations and referred re citations of the Quran, includes the best mela as a verse for the beginning of each and every surah. Nevertheless,
the interpretation of Imam Shafi and some of the Imams is that mseb Malik was a young man at the time of the prophets of Allah, Allah you are seldom a young child in fact, at the time of the prophet Isaiah, He did not necessarily pray at the very beginning rows so he was a few rows back and it is very likely that the prophets I seller may have said Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and then Jehovah and would read a louder Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen It is not seen as
a mistake in the Salah, or that there is a deficiency in the Salah to not have the best manner out loud in sha Allah, and if it is done, it is something that is acceptable. Even in Lehi to either we have a caller online As Salam Alikum caller How can I help?
Said I'm Anakin color How can I help?
Said I'm watching cinematical.
for the previous question that
I want to ask you for a while and you're able to
go come back twice record and you missed the record because the nature of my job I can't wait to get the three five minutes. Yes. Can I come back? All my tour?
In one go. It's impossible that you couldn't get them. You didn't get to?
Me may Allah subhanaw taala.
In relation to the beginning
I want to say my prayer and I
said I want to spend
the next year I want to retire.
I normally stay at home.
That's it. Is that okay? It is okay. Yes. So you can always as a ministry on routine whenever necessary as a general statement, Allah says in the Quran, when you recite from the Quran for stabila seek protection from Allah. With regards to your first question. I would say to you, the answer is yes. But don't do it for all of the prayers if you have an opportunity to do some of them in their correct time. So just say you're at work for the bulk of the prayer, and maybe the federal prayer so the early morning and both. So you combine them yes, at the end of the day, but if you can pray you're magnificent. It's time a shot and it's time that would be more virtuous. If you can't
then do them all together. No problem in sha Allah. The aim of course is seeking the pleasure of Allah and to demonstrate that we want to fulfill the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu already
us Allah, may Allah increase you in good and accept the little that we do, and make it great for us on the Day of Judgment. Hola
como la fere? Thank you for your question, sister, it was important for other people as well as him to be deaf.
Those are all very interesting and important questions for all of us, Japan Allah. For many of us we do lead busy lives at times, and are we able to make up certain things that we have missed out that are normal parts of our life? That general enter you will find is yes. How can it not be when Allah subhanaw taala For example, He says to us that if you miss the day of fasting, because you were traveling or sick for a day or two min a Yemen or make it up on other days, alright, and when we are not to make it up, Allah particularly tells us with a prophet tells us I tell them not to make it up. So for example, our sisters, they make up their fasting of Ramadan, but they do not make up
their normal five daily prayers, when they have been given the blessing of their menstrual cycle, which is a sign of their vulnerability and that they're able to have and carry children. It's a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala that they have a time off that they don't need to make up their salah, and you might say, you know, making a Posada might be easier than me making up a whole day of fasting but that is the wisdom and the knowledge that is exclusive to Allah subhana wa to Ireland. So the things that are known that we are able to make them up are given as gifts to us by Allah and where Allah tells us not to make it up is a gift from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah
increases in His mercy and in His wisdom and knowledge Lachman I mean
we have another caller on the line as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah caller How can I help?
My question is
doing the same?
Allah bless us with many more Ramadan's to stand in prayer at night, the word total we It means Takara what to study. It comes from two words that you recite from the Quran and then take roja or add to study you take a moment of rest. The prophets of Allah, Allah, you set it up one time came in the month of Ramadan, and he saw that there was a rope at the back of the masjid extended from one wall to the other. And he asked whose rope is this? Why is this rope here? Why is there a rope here? And they said, This is for your daughter, I want the Allahu anha. She puts it under her arm that when she gets tired, it's a support for it's like a crutch for her to keep her upright. So she prays
longer hours in the night. The prophets Eliza Lim said hello, you know, I'm tired. This is excessive. So we know that there were women who prayed in the majority of the prophets, I said their night prayers in Ramadan, those who prayed it in the tongue of evitable kebab in the Jamara with the Muslim men as well. However, those who do pray it at home, it is classified and counted for them as part of the virtuous nine prayers, where they are leading themselves in some area and they gain the same reward that is promised by the prophets I send them the prophets I send them Allah instructs him to teach us men comma Ramadan, the one who shows themselves standing in devotional prayer at
II man and what the Sabbath doing this because they have faith in God and hoping for Allah's reward as your question is hoping for Allah's reward.
If you don't let him get caught them that day, their sins are forgiven in another way and the one who stands in prayer in the in the night of other, their sins are forgiven. All of those show us that it is virtuous for us to stand in prayer at night, whether as an individual or as a congregation, and for our sisters who stay at home because they have other duties and obligations and they want the message to maintain its decorum so they take it upon themselves to stay at home with their young children, but they don't want to miss out on that reward and they stand to Allah and they fulfill their EBA in the privacy of their own home. Well Allah He the reward of that is
magnified in accordance to the intention. I stayed home because I don't want to disturb others. I stayed home because I want to look after my children. I stayed home because I wanted to make room for those who were going to be inconvenience because we have a small budget in our community. I wanted the brothers who it's more important for them to show up to the masjid, to have space outside where they're not in the cold or in the rain or in the heat. You know I'm doing all these different needs.
Subhan Allah imagine the reward magnifying for that dear sister and then the struggle of her leaving herself in prayer, when it could be more convenient to just say, well I'm at home, I'm just going to rest. There isn't that same enthusiasm? As if when other people are standing in line with me? May Allah Subhana Allah Allah reward our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our wives, our grandmothers, for their incredible achievements in the month of Ramadan, Allah I mean, I leave you finally, with the hadith of Chateau the Allahu anha describes her condition that she would invite a young researcher of the Quran to lead her in prayer. Although she is a master of the Quran and
memorize the Quran, she would invite one of the younger men to lead her in prayer who had not finished the Quran would read from the pages of the Quran, and she wouldn't be led in prayer by him because she wanted also the reward of having a Jamar. So if you have you know a son, if you have a nephew, if you have somebody who can recite for you, that is also one of the things that is taught to us in the Sunnah of the wives of the Prophet saw the settlement of the women of the lawsuits of Eliza and his companions and so heavy follow the Allah who and when did you marry him? May Allah grant us and then the reward. We have another caller on the line I said I want to call her How can I
a mobile app to you and your family and your loved ones. May Allah return the blessing of eight many more years upon us loving me
with just to go on eighth of the month of Ramadan we're on track to be done.
I was shocked to hear one of my close friends.
Yeah, he was drinking alcohol during Ramadan
may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant him forgiveness and may Allah cover his shame. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah help him to overcome this addiction. I want you to know my dear brother, that there were those who were alcoholics at the time of the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah, he was setting him who the Prophet stood up for and defended. So, you know, there was not just one there was more than one. So in fact, one of the great warriors of Islam, who was a warrior with his tongue as a poet, and a warrior with a sword in defending the truth and defending the nobility of the prophesy Salem is one of those will have a named ever imagine at the coffee or on the Allahu Anwar, but now I've imagined
was an eloquent poet who used to compose poetry to defend the honor of the prophesy Salim when the people of operation the Arabs used to try to do right in with negative words. And the prophets I seldom would say, you know, continue to answer them and I'll and you'll be supported. And imagine if the author of The Allahu Anhu was addicted to alcohol, and he could not stop and in the life of the prophets, I seldom, there were times when he came to the masjid in his drunken state, and the Prophet performed as a unit and ordered him to leave the masjid. And when one time the prophets I send them saw Sahaba coming and surrounding, you know, you know, one of the Sahaba in his drunken
state, where you Aluna who, you know, they were just, you know, hammering away at him, how could you and you know, shaming yourself and the prophets I send them said that, oh, leave this man alone. For in new Allah I Allah more and know who your people are horrible so that I know that this man has a love of God and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I you know, help him to overcome it. But,
you know, some of the greats will have a way that will Java or the Allahu anhu, he saw a group of young men who had surrounded another one who had committed a sin. And they were also deriving him. And he said, Stop, don't don't be so harsh to him, especially in public. If he was to fall in the river, would you not attempt to go in to save his life? Would you not throw him a rope? Would you not dive in? Would you not do something to bring him out of of what would be a type of death? They said, Yes. Even with who he is, wouldn't you save his life? They said, Yes. He said, we'll save his spiritual life. So why are you treating them this way? So my dear brother, I would, you know, with
whatever you you know, upset that you have a disappointment you have. I want you to leverage that in doubling your effort to be a door that you open for this brother.
or to walk through to cleanse themselves. And perhaps you visiting him more often, rather than cutting him off, perhaps you helping him with some of the stresses in his life, that make him turn towards this drink as a trigger, because a lot of people they consume it due to the pain that they're experiencing the self medicate of status is that there's things in their life that they don't know how to deal with. And for other people, it's become just a bad habit that they don't know how to get away from. And it's very addictive and it requires consistent health, and you know, support, and perhaps by you being that support for him, then it could have a greater effect on his
life and yours. And I will also end by saying, if his drinking is something that negatively impacts your home and your family. That for example, if you do try to become closer to that it's going to put stress between you and your children, you and your job and it's going to consume you then yes, for your self preservation, you would limit the contact, but it shouldn't be out of disappointment, just on its own regard. May Allah subhanaw taala make you as the prophet described a key to the goodness in other people's lives may Allah make us Marathi, hello higher Musa, a key profile in other people's life. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said hi Eurocom the best of you and
very quickly nurse is the one who becomes the most supportive and the most useful for other people in particular, what is meant by useful, useful to those who need help to those who are in trouble to those who have gone too far. May Allah make us do the work of the prophets of Allah which is to be reformist, and helping others to come back from the brink Allah to me.
and that's a you know, an i An important question for all of us to consider, and to look in our outlook in life as being builders of other people in their times of need.
We have another question that's come through through the social media is reciting al Fatiha for the deceased. Is it a sunnah, so the word sunnah means very particular things. The word sunnah is a model the behavior of the prophets or it's something that he did something that he spoke up and encouraged even if he didn't do or something that he allowed to be done without condemning it. sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that is a filthy understanding something that is recommended to be done in none of those is the statement recite Surah Fatiha for those who have passed away. Why is it a general habit that people recite the Fatiha because it reminds us of our own mortality. It is the
essential prayer that we do in Salah to Janaza it's the only Surah we recite in janazah. So some of the older men have interpreted and extrapolated that of all of the Quran, the one section of the Quran the prophets I seldom said for us to recite at Janaza time is Al Fatiha. So surely inside and outside prayer, it should be virtuous. Is it a sunnah in that sense? No. Is it permissible? Yes. Does it remind us that Allah Maliki or redeem is the master of our judgment? Does it remind us that we see to be on the straight path? The answer is yes, Leon V. Rahman Can I am the Quran its purpose is to give warning to those of us who remain alive as is stated in surah. Yaseen. So if you are
reciting al Fatiha to remind others of our own mortality that Allah is Rob will either mean that Allah is the one that we always praise, that Allah will hold us accountable, then yes, there is virtue in it, but we do not claim it as an action or a recommendation of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if we did not recite it, it doesn't mean that we've dishonored the memory of a deceased person. Inshallah We have another caller on the line as Salam Alikum caller How can I help
you had mentioned before Ramadan that you will be
able to see like your family but
my question that you mentioned,
that is also referred to the best of the night. I just wanted to ask you that, you know, like the days are getting longer in the United Kingdom as
the nights away
short is that compulsory to go to sleep and wake up which is that is that the principle of prayer? Or can you what time does it start and how do we actually perform it
except for new and thank you for your generous do I and thinking well of me and my family may Allah X answer your DUA and accept from us. May Allah always join us in the best of places doing the best of deeds and the best of times Allah meme mazzucato To Allah except there we go out for each other. I mean, you're behind me. So Salatin Fiemme solid PMO les salata, tahajjud, and in Ramadan salatu Torah we, or Sebata tattooed all of them mean the same thing, any prayer that is done after method. So someone read a mat, they hold any prayer that is done after meditative even before Aisha is that is a night prayer. So you can feel between method of inertia doing night prayers and increasing your
a burden. Generally speaking, most will not hold any prayer after a short time after you finished your Isha. Any prayer done after that is clear Malay is that you've stood up in the night time to worship Allah to the word literally means standing in prayer during the evening hours. So the moment salatu the Isha has come to an end and you're in your performance you performed Asia. Any prayer thereafter is called Korea Malaysia, including the winter prayer. So if you do to Raka and one that's winter, but it's also clear Malay.
When I issued the Allahu Allah has she said that the Prophet used to pray 11 raka she's referring to the Wizard of prayer of the Prophet, I sell them as part of kriya Malay, there were other rockers that he performed, but he always ended it with those eight Raka and then three and two and 111 raka or 13. If he includes that with the federal prayer with it, or with the federal the sooner that is before the advent of solid intelligence, all of those are considered night prayers. And you can pray as many or as little as you are capable of you don't have to limit it just to eight or 10 or 15 or you know, whatever it could be as many as you want on the condition insha Allah and even if you
don't do it is still accepted. That last prayer is one Rakhine that it is just one waiter that concludes your evening prayers. And if you wake up again and Federalists still happen, just pray another two o'clock I'm no problem. Just don't do another week. So there are no to withdraw in any one night. The key to your night prayers is that it is with intention to stand before Allah in an voluntary capacity outside your normal fulfillment of your sada May Allah subhanaw taala fill our minds with prayer allotment. I mean, I have a piece that I wrote, it's published online, it's called Jihad by night which speaks about the importance and power of tahajjud because the Jahad that the
head dude comes from the same concept of struggling at night. May Allah give us and allow us to win the battle against ourselves, that we rise up in prayer in the evenings. Hopefully it could be a benefit in sha Allah. I look forward to seeing you again next week. Same time, noon, London time Subhanak Allah won't be Handicare shadow Allah Illa hidden to suffer to be late for Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
