Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa Salam wa that is your brother. Yeah. Hey Ibrahim coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia. It's a little bit past 7pm In the evening, Wednesday evening at Hamdulillah. We are normally accustomed to meeting noon London time. I pray that Allah subhanaw taala has gathered us in our different nations and countries. In fact continents that he gathers us all agenda to Philadelphia that whenever you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I pray that we have an opportunity to join and share and interchange with each other, some of the blessing of our
faith, the Sunnah of the interview, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and things that enliven our heart, and give us compassion and merciful insight into the inner workings of our life along with me, I hope insha Allah to hear your voice in our Islamic live call in q&a. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes the effort of you calling and the end and the questions that you provide, but they become a soda jatiya on behalf of others who may benefit from the answers delivered insha Allah there are a number of questions that have already come in from previous sessions that perhaps were not answered, and some that have just been sent in through the WhatsApp service in the email
service. We're going to take some of those until we hear your voices insha Allah coming live to us in our Islamic q&a session.
One of the questions I've come across this dua on Instagram please is it authentic?
And Allahu Allah. It's written in translation. Aloha, my name is Andrew Kirby and Nica and Allahu La Ilaha, Illa and Salman let me lemmya Ledwell mula della mia Kula who cook for now yes, this is a dua of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. There are other narrations and renditions of it that include the raffia sama Avila, Ahmed, Oh Allah, you are the one who was uplifted the heavens without pillars. And these are all of course allusions to the verses that are found in Surah to last, the third last chapter of the Quran. Putting the whole Allahu Ahad Allahu slumming the myriad whatever you live with me Aquila, who Khufu and I had, it is an authentic two out of the Prophet Muhammad. So
I sent them where we, where we seek to bring to ALLAH SubhanA who went to Ana, our praise of him and extolling our great measure of remembrance of him as diligent. There's no better way to remember Allah than what a lot instructed in the Quran and to describe Allah in no greater way than is to describe Allah with how he described himself that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is ahead and fuddled, a summit all of these are names of Allah subhanho wa Taala that are established in sort of laws.
Another question we had come forward as salaam alaikum. I have two questions. My first one, when doing a rock attain before Phaedra prayers, can I recite the shortest sutras and in my federal prayer, I recite maybe from Surah to never or sortal Allah, and in the second, so that's the first question. Yes, of course. You are permitted to recite a Saqqara mantra. Yes, sir. Amina Quran, ALLAH says recite from the Quran, whatever is convenient for you. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was his habit and lay you'll feel he was not excessive in the reading of the Quran, especially if he was leading others in prayer. When you pray your own devotional prayers, your late
night prayers you can take as liberty with yourself and read as much as you want. In sha Allah. There is nothing wrong with shooting at choosing some of the shorter chapters for your
Sunnah prayers that are poor before salt and fish.
This is actually an established habit of the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam kind of you have if he would pray to rock as a fever, and then he would lay down on his right hand side a little bit until the farmer was called for Salafi veggie, then he would go and lead the prayer. With regards to the vegetal prayers, there were certain sorrows that the Prophet read in particular dates. So on Friday morning, Phaedra the prophets I send them it was a regular habit of his to recite Surah and if lamb Lam Meem Sajida Subrata says that in the first Raka and in the second rock I would recite Surah Al inside. So this is established in the authentic hadith from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam. And seems like there's a second question. My second question when reciting my Quran. Sometimes there is no veil on my head or even a cap I leave my hair open while reciting the Quran. Am I wrong? The Quran treats it
Shouldn't is not hindered by your attire in that particular circumstance, you are still in a state of a job that is Sukra, a minor state of Punjab. Now you would not recite the Quran in a state of New nudity or nakedness. As long as you're in a state that is presentable to those who are your secondary Mahad meaning your children, your your parents and so on. Then it is not offensive. There is nothing wrong with this in sha Allah, the prophets I send them can they occur? No, I definitely. Well if you would recite the Quran and all of his circumstances and conditions insha Allah. It is of course from the Edit from the manners and the aspects of us dignifying our state of re citation of
the Quran to have layers of ethical behavior with it. So we like to sit facing Nakula we like to recite the Quran while the Quran is in an elevated held position. We like to recite from the Quran and from the most hub
while we are in a state of will do we want to recite from the Quran without distraction and disturbance around us in a clean setting. We want to be from those who are seated on the ground and in some or they might even prefer the position of the shower hood. All of those are different things that are layers of showing deference and
honor honor refining the book of Allah azza wa jal, the great Sahabi humble Allah the Allahu Anhu when the Quran was first delivered to the area that he was living in the Coronavirus, man, and the Mossad was open, he put his face on to its pages, and he wept and he said her that kind of ropey. These are the instructions in the words of my Lord, having been revealed to the prophets, I sell them that are now found in this scripture. So he held the Quran to great esteem.
We have another question. How many days will a traveller pray hustle? Is it till he returns from his journey or for some particular days? This is a question that will depend on a person's viewpoint and a person's mental health or mental health.
It can vary from one opinion to another.
For our customer prayers, it is understood by the humbly scholars, that it is something that can be extended as long as the person is in the intention of their journey. So if you are a person who is traveling, and just say your trip is 15, day trip, 20 day trip, are you allowed to shorten for those 20 days? What is the extent that you are allowed to shorten if you are staying in a place and you're not staying in that place for longer than four days, then you are in more than one journey. But if you have been there for you know, a well known position of Imam Akhmad is that if you have been there for that period of time, and you are there for, you know, for the duration of two days or
three days, and it's under four days, you are permitted to shorten. However, in general, it's while you're in the state of your journey, while you are traveling in the journey, that is where you need the convenience of maybe shortening along with the joining of the prayer. The basic principle really is that while a person is actually traveling, and the one is in the state of travel, then they can shorten their for Raka tutorial. So if you are in the state of travel, then you can consider yourself a traveler. Even if you are traveling, then you come to a place and you're there for a day or two. Then you pick up and you go to another place for a day or two. You are still in a in a state
of flux living out of your suitcase getting in and out of buses, trains cars. So you would consider yourself in that state insha Allah and it is our compensate something that was given to us by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as an instruction from Allah. There are authentic narrations, of course, that some of the Sahaba although they were not travelers are in that journey, that they were stuck in a land that was not theirs. The famous example is that of Abdullah hub near him up or the Allahu Anhu out of LA he wasn't traveling on a vacation. He was traveling in the Cause of Allah subhana wa Tada. He was traveling to disseminate our our deen to other places and other
lands. And Abdullah have neuroma. They were snowed in in Azerbaijan. So they had reached the areas of Azerbaijan for six months and the snow
Oh kept falling. And he shortened his prayer. He shortened his prayer. And he, you know, join
in that length of time. This is one of the durations that has been mentioned. You should not make up your shortened prayers when you come back home, they are valid and accepted by Allah subhanho wa taala. So, in general, while you're in a journey, there's no disagreement, you're in the journey, you can shorten your prayers in sha Allah due to the concession offered to us by Allah and the convenience that has been offered through the Sunnah of the interview, Mohammed, Salah Allahu Allahu Allah, early on, you were sending him to Sleeman kathira. At Santa Monica, if I borrow some money from someone, then I don't get
this people that, that I don't get to the people. How can I give this? So I'm not really sure I understand the question. If I borrow some money from someone, then I don't get to see these people. Maybe that's what they're asking, on time, how am I to give them this money if I don't get to see them again Subhanallah, one of the great obligations upon a Muslim and one of the help that a Muslim has for another, that if we are given a trust, or if we are put in debt towards someone that we are from those who seek to fulfill it at its earliest convenience. And it's for that reason, the prophesy setting was very strict. in us being a community that we're not prone to wanting debt,
right. There's this
phobia that we have
of owing people wealth and the prophets, I seldom would not himself lead the prayer for somebody, even if it's a righteous person who owed people their debts until the debts were settled, the prophet would ask somebody else to lead the prayer. And that was to signify how important it is for our debt to be paid. There are somebody wire and there is different discussions about the authenticity of it, but there are rewired, where it is said that the soul of an individual remains hanging between heaven and earth until their debts are paid. It's something where they are not put to rest. You know, Allah tells us in Surah GRC, that when we are in our grave, when we come out on
the Day of Judgment, we say, called New member at Mar Kadena Harada, who roused us from our restful sleep, you know who woke us up? Well, that restful sleep is missing from the one who owes people wealth and debt and as indebted to others. So we don't want to owe people money. In the same time, if we owe people money, and we have the intention of paying it back, then we should do so as soon as possible before we are asked or before the term comes. And if the term comes in, we need extension, we can ask for it in sha Allah. Now if the person we owe has passed away, or they traveled,
and we're not sure how to get to them, that debt remains a debt, but we can equalize it by giving money in charity. So just say I owed somebody $100 and I borrowed it from them, you know, in an airport, and I don't see them again. SubhanAllah. And by chance, I say subhanallah I wanted to give this money back and they I don't know where they are. So then I give $100 in charity, with the knee of it being credited to that man, that woman was helpful to me who loaned me if it so happens two months later, two years later, I get on another plane and that same person who loaned me the $100 is in front of me and he asks me for it, then it is still a debt that I owe them even though I gave
that charity even though I equalized it with Allah, I have not given them their Huck there Right. So debts should be paid as soon as possible.
I said I'm on ECAM. And dear brother, I pray you and your loved ones and our are blessed. How is best to dispose of old moorlands old books and other Islamic items that have Allah's name on them. Thank you, Joseph Moffat. This is a question that is an important question. So may Allah subhanaw taala
reward you for asking it and for allowing other people to benefit. So at the time of the prophets, I send them if there was something that was omitted from the Quran, or there was something that needed they would scrub out the ink and they would rewrite. And if that failed, they would destroy the piece of paper by either burying it very, very deep in the earth or by setting it alight so that it would not confuse others as to the Quran having a missing word or a missing letter or so it may be. So we're very particular about making sure that the Quran is preserved in the way that it's meant to be. So those are some of the same ways that we can continue to make sure that the Quran is not mixed
up or and that's missing pages or verses or you know,
has a typographical mistake, it can be finely shredded, it can be finely shredded, it can be buried, and it can be burned. To make sure that it does not get confused with complete sets in sha Allah.
As Santa Monica, we're not going to lie what occurred?
Could you please advise what are the best drivers to read for our children to be better pious and well behaved children and for a good family, life Insha Allah, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow our children to become better than we want them to be. And then Allah subhana wa Tiana sends Hidayat into their heart, and that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows them to grow strong and, and to be nurtured with our love and to grow under our watchful eye and, in obedience to the Sunnah and the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I wanted first to state that I do it on its own is insufficient for assuring that our children will become righteous, kind hearted, pious
children, there needs to be an investment,
from our wealth, from our effort, from our education, from their schools, from their companions, there has to be something we're going to give up to make sure that they are established in the way that we seek for them to be. So it is hard work and Allah says to the prophets, I send them what a more LACOB is Salah was Bobby Riley, be enforcing a prayer upon your home and your family and be obstinate impatience? Meaning but was stubborn, there's a TA that's added to the word SLUB it's not what's been either Yeah, it was Stop it. I need to be overly vigilant, be constant in your vigilance that they remain part and parcel of the praying Muslim community that we have and that we seek. And
this is an important perspective. It's not just oh Allah guide my children. And then when the going gets tough, and we need to take them with us to the masjid we go to the masjid and we leave them at home. We say Oh, who's coming to the masjid? Nobody put their hand up. So we go and pray a shot and we leave our children. That isn't the answer to the giraffe. So the very concept of dua is that you demonstrate your tawakkul upon Allah, that Allah will enter my dua by putting into practice what you're asking. So if you're asking, Oh Allah, help my children become people of the Quran, then it's your duty, to pick up the Quran to pay for a tutor to get a teacher to take them to the Duke see
Quran class, whatever it may be. On Friday night, Saturday, Sundays whenever the Quran classes are in your in your community, you must be the answer to your own dua. You cannot just simply say, Oh Allah, give Allah who made the Allah the Oh Allah guide my children, oh Allah open their heart to Islam, oh Allah lead them to the good things that I seek for them in this life and that they work hard and they love your faith. All of those are sensible, and all of those who drag you must make but all of them are actionable from our perspective.
So that becomes a very important you know, part of derive. We never see the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam assuming for an individual to trust Allah without putting their part in the famous statement where a man came to the measure of the province of SLM and he just left his camera he didn't tie it to the door of the masjid, you know, they had a big ring, you tie your candle to
the prophets, I seldom saw the man you know the men let go of the reins of the camel and walk into the menu. The prophets I send them said, Tell her you should tie your camel for follow up on telecoil to Allah Allah I trust Allah I trust that Allah will keep my belongings that that came a wound run out into the desert. The prophets I seldom said Al Qaeda or whatever can tie it up and that will show your trust in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to tie it up and do your part in seeking for Allah to fulfill that. So what are some dua that we make? We will search first in the Quran near the end of Surah Al Furqan. Allah Subhana Allah says all of that heavy Lenna mean as well Gina will
react in a Kurata RU. O Allah, bless us from our spouses and from our children that which will be pleasing to our site, which I ended with duckling Imam and oh Allah make us as a family, for the believers as guides and leaders to be fooled and menial I mean from my home in yours. The dry Zakaria is also very very powerful rugby lads I don't need follow that. Oh Allah do not leave me alone in this world. Oh Allah bless me with a child. Oh Allah bless me with a child the Eddie thuney
weigh everything, I mean earlier folk that will inherit the good that we have as believers. All of those are righteous deeds that are found in the Quran. And of course we have the DUA, Robbie Gianni Mukti masala women the reality of the waterfall belterra. Finally we have the dua of Rukia of the prophets I sell them for it has an old saying preys on children for its own self,
or ego Kuma ministry, ministry it on a regime and kuliah it them women Cooley, the Prophet iclm would say I ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect you from the accursed shayateen. And from every i that may fall upon you with evil intent, women could only have and from every
abuse and difficulty that will bring despair upon you that it'd be lifted and protected for you. And those statements of the prophets I send them are easily searchable, where you can find them in Arabic, English translation, and transliteration in sha Allah. If you look for Arabic, dua of the prophet for our children, it will come up for you in sha Allah or for protecting our children from the evil eye.
We have another question we read our daily morning and evening drives and so do our children with us. But we still we need we feel that we need more. So I will leave you with this final thought that the best that you make the best way to invoke ALLAH SubhanA who went to either and the best of means of asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for that which you seek of him is that you make a demonstration in your Eman to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, of what it is that you seek from it, and how you seek it and what you are willing to commit from your life to achieve it. And the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam was really good in teaching us, you know the systems of having an
accepted draft. And if I can just share with you three or four important, I guess steps in that. The first step is to recognize that you are asking the one who can provide. So when you are making dua to Allah subhana wa Tala, your DUA is not just making a haphazard request, your DUA is I'm asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, who is the only one capable of entry. So I have host Nordlund nebula have a great estimation of ALLAH SubhanA who went to Allah answering you and giving you as you request. Number two, don't stand in front of the King of kings and ask for peanuts, ask for pennies. So don't stand in front of Allah and just say, oh, Allah helped my family helped me and my children.
And that's it. But be more, you know, qualifying. Oh Allah speak about their education, speak about their health, speak about their growth, speak about their Eman, speak about their prayers, speak about the relationship with you speak about their friendships, speak about their you know, enemies, oh Allah help them against those who don't support them, help them against those who seek them ill will make dua for that which is good for them and make dua that Allah protects them from what you perceive is not good for them right all of those are different ways where now you enhance your derive from it just being Can you teach me something you know, just that I make? Now if you fail it
that the prophets I seldom taught us that one of the most comprehensive is to say Allah who met me as endocarp mean right up mess, I look at mineral Abdullah rosulip.
Three, we're going to come back in sha Allah after I was short break
Allahu Bedich people
Alright, for those who are with me on our social media streams in sha Allah,
do share some of your questions and we'll do our best to take them I see that there's a number of questions that have come in.
A person who avoids a sin and a person who commits sins and repent or they have the same status, it depends on the same status in the sight of whom, with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. It's not just necessarily if a person made a scene and then repented or a person didn't make a sin. Status is something that at times is qualified in human terms with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada a person who has practice seen, can reach the heights of higher than a person who was not practicing, that is entirely possible within our tradition in our understanding as Muslims. So with Allah, some kind of went to Allah, it's about the genuineness of heart. It's about the commitment to living a better
life. And it's about what
wanting to engage with Allah subhanaw taala for a lifelong pursuit of EBITA Can you please talk about Poulain? I mean,
what are they? Are they like women? Who gets them and do women get them? So who will even are the maidens of paradise, they are those who are Allah subhanaw taala created to serve humanity in Jannah. There are also wills done on Maha lagoon, there are also young meat mains and young young men who are in Jannah, who are servants in Jannah. That they are those who are in the service of both men and women in that sense. The concepts that relate to who to lean do not necessarily have to have a worldly desire, the way you may be thinking, and therefore we are taught by the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, He will send them that what is in Jana names may be approximate, but their
functions and their processes are different. So do not attempt to consider what is in Jana, in a way where you're trying to think of it in your worldly terms in this dunya the prophets lie Selim describes it and by saying that Allah describes it by saying, mela i know i has beheld, went out with him in some act, no ear, no human ear has heard of its delight. When I'm yesterday that couldn't be better, and that there is no conscious heart that could ever envision could ever picture could ever imagine. What is within janitorial filters? So that becomes really important.
Just like Calaca
another question a chef I was engaged in, in a love spell. I read who was involved I read who is involved is not a Muslim. I cry every day and prayer May Allah forgive me. I'm not really sure what that means. May Allah subhana wa Tada protect us. When it comes with things that relate to the unseen world only Allah subhanaw taala has power and knowledge over the things we pray that Allah subhanaw taala apprentices protection grants us His love and makes us from those who are virtuous. I also say to our brother and sister, whoever is asking these kinds of questions, know that Allah Subhana Allah Allah has not given power or authority of anything over anyone without his power over
them in its totality. So make your complaint and raise yourself to Allah subhanaw taala if you feel that this is a moment where you have been harmed, ask Allah subhanaw taala for help and assistance and guidance allotment I mean,
all right, can we touch dogs? How do we clean our hands and clothes after touching them is prayer valid if we don't wash our hands after touching thoughts? So dogs according to the method will Imam Malik are not notice any part of them except things like urine and so on. We do know from the authentic hadith that there were dogs that would enter into the method of the prophet Isaiah limit and then go out. The people still continue to pray there, there was no particular cleaning routine when that happened. We know that in the life of the prophets, I sell them a lot of the Muslims Sahaba owned dogs that were hunters. And one of the greatest evidence that we know dogs are not
nudges is because if something that is not just be it, you know comes in contact with something lesser than it, it makes that the net just so we know that by the necessity of having a hunting dog, that if you send your hunting dog out, and it catches a prey, and it takes a bite of the prey to kill the prey, and it returns it to you. It hasn't eaten it. It hasn't eaten something of it, but it's hunted it for you. You don't say that that particular animal is now images you are allowed to consume it as a Muslim. So that's evidence that a dog in its totality is not niches Should we have a dog in our home? The answer is no. Can we have a dog outside our home is a guard dog or a shepherd
dog mentor is yes. And we're encouraged to have that. Inshallah there's nothing wrong with that. So why not in the home the prophets I seldom said that the angels don't pray in the house where a dog leaves inside. The reason is that dogs mark their territory they they spot their scent, they urinate in different parts and if you live in that home, you might lose your sensitization to it but other people come and visit they can smell the urine smell of dogs, you can smell it on people and their clothes and so on. So the angels don't enter a place where there's urine, right? It's not necessarily the just the dog is that the dogs effect in that place. And that's the reason why I
would encourage you not to have a dog in your
At Home inshallah
we're going to be coming back live to Islam channel now for our live feed we're just 30 or 40 seconds away from rejoining them in sha Allah
All right, well answer your question about the loose when we take our first question in shop
So now MyLEAGUE and rahmatullah wa barakatu. Welcome back. It's your brother. Yeah. Hey, Brahim. We're continuing with our journey. Through our Islamic q&a. We have a caller on the line said I want to come call her How can I help?
I have a question. If I want to visit a patient in the hospital
wants to make fun of her that
she's on deathbed.
May Allah grant her a good and may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah give her the Kadima before she departs. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make you a reason for that. So what I would say to you when you visit somebody in their final moments such as that, and may Allah allow that there are other people who are able to visit as well. You want to perform the lien, you want to perform the assistance of reminding them of making their do and their own shahada to Allah. So what I would recommend for you to do Hijjah is that as you are seated with her, repeat the Kalama Illa illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, I shall do a
lot. Why should we know Muhammad Rasool Allah and speak to her of Allah's mercy, you know, recite Surah Fatiha recycle who Allah who I had to recycle a little bit fell off and the nurse and what are with their time, reminder certainly not by saying, c'est la ilaha illallah isn't really the, the approach It's to remind them with your practice of it. So be regular with the Kadima be regular with the Durood upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if you are seeking she fat for her, is the dua of the prophets I send them Allah who met Hubble Betts Oh ALLAH remove this pain, remove this harm. There are longer versions of it, it's a lot more openness in the Hubble bets issue and
the sharpies you know, you will have to do soccer, but the shortest of them Allahumma Harville Betts Oh ALLAH remove the pain, oh Allah remove that. The ailment Oh Allah help her in this moment. And it does not have to be in Arabic it does not have to be in in the language that is not meaningful to you. So say it in English. Oh Allah helper. Oh Allah give her Shiva Oh Allah give her an easy passing Oh Allah open for her the door to Jenna. Oh Allah make easy this moment for her Yeah, Allah. So that is a more effective drive that is genuine from the heart that just simply repeating something in sha Allah, but certainly as you sit with her sit near her, audible enough not to put in
her essence of fear that it's imminent. But reminder of the Kenya maca. Illa Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah, Allah rasool Allah, and be regular with it's repetition and make your you know, your counting of it 100 times and let EDA la Wacka. Hola Shari Keller do that 100 times Subhan Allah what they haven't been Subhan Allah and all the how glorious is Allah? How forgiving is Allah? How merciful is Allah and reminder of each and every one of those important processes that you and I have as Muslims in sha Allah. Those are some of the ways that I would recommend for you to support her in this in this moment.
Allah Hebrew and may Allah reward you for taking the time to visit her and to sit by her.
I mean, does that
sit down okay. We have another question that has come forward.
can I delay
until after sunrise then pray fetcher because of the winters.
So, fetcher is prayed before the sunrise
ISIS, so I'm not sure I understand the question. Are you saying you want to delay having your booster which you need for your prayer, or you just want to you know, I'm going to pray my friends just get back into bed and sleep and then I want to shower later, I'm not really sure I understand for you to pray fed you, it has to be before the sunrise in sha Allah. So as as you are getting ready for the prayer, it would if you need to have a listen to just say your menstrual cycle has come to an end or due to sexual interaction. You need to have a spiritual loosely cleansing, not just a physical one, then you are to necessarily do it for your Salah to be valid before the sun
rises in sha Allah. So that would become a necessity.
That would be a part and parcel of it in sha Allah for you to be able to catch the reward of Salam infection.
We have a number of questions that have come in through our WhatsApp service in sha Allah.
As a Christian that wants to accept Islam is it advisable to begin visiting the masjid before my convergent at what I would certainly ask you to do is to start making Muslim friends and start visiting the masjid let them know that this is something that I have an interest in it. Ask them for resources, see if there's any classes that you're welcome to attend. There's usually entry level you know classes and give it a go get involved in the community get involved in some of the charitable projects, get involved in some of the dinners and the fundraising events, get involved in some of the learning programs and just live you know life as a normal expression of your inquisitiveness and
the nature that you that you have. So certainly I would, I would encourage that in your insha Allah as salaam alaikum my favorite chef mashallah Joseph Camilla, when one joins in late in the last two rockers of an obligatory congregational prayer. Do you have to say As salam o alaikum on both sides after the Imam at the end of the prayer or just get up straight without saying so to complete the missing raka it's a good question. Mashallah. So if a person joins the Imam late and they have finished one rocker or more, and now you need to make up the rest of your prayer, while the Imam after the Imam says As salam o aleikum, wa Rahmatullah the first set of Salah has effectively come
to an end. So the beginning of Salah is Allahu Akbar, the end of Salah is the first Salam. The second Salam is Sunnah, so the salah actually ends with a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah the second one to the left is assuming that to do it, it's recommended to do it, but if it's not left or if it's not done, or if it's left off, the salah has come to an end. So once the Imam says salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah on the right hand side, you are now able to stand up. And you do not need to say salam because you're going to continue with the prayer that the Imam began with because you want to gain the reward of having prayed with the congregation. So you do not say a Salam alaykum
Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh you would stand up and you would continue what was missing from your Salah in sha Allah, that is
the most practical and the easiest way to remember that in sha Allah
We have another caller on the line and said I'm on a call
good to hear from you. Had you Hashem How can I help
by the trauma?
No, which is around
isn't allowed. Is it permissible to buy from a Christian
to buy from a Christian person because they don't say the name of God
does that God love him? So I'll this needs a little bit of clarity.
Generally speaking, everything in life is deemed Halal unless proven haram. At the folk Aha, the scholars of FIFA, they say except for the chapter of foods. Foods your default position is to be extra careful. It's like no, no, no, I can't consume it unless I'm sure unless I'm aware that it's it's good for me to eat halal and play either. So the the issue isn't the person's faith. So if the butcher is a Christian, that's fine. It's not about his faith. It's where
Whether he is meeting the dietary requirements of the actual Christian faith in his preparation of the meat, so if the meat is coming from a place where it, you know that it's just there's no issue that relates to religion and God and so on, and they that they, there is no slaughter of the animal, or it's, you know, it's spiked rather than bled, then this is something that you would it's not about the butchers,
Christian faith. What makes kosher food halal for us is not that it's a Jewish person slaughtering it is that it's a Jewish person slaughtering it according to the laws of, of the Torah, which are applicable and are acceptable by us. So that becomes a very important kind of process and an important way to look at it. If if you live in a place where halal meat is not readily deliverable is not readily available for you to go in and buy it. And it's difficult for you to make the trip to the nearest butcher to say bulk order for the coverage of one month or so. And you live in a place where the meat is bled, there are slaughter laws in effect, and I can't comment on where you are the
person is asking the question because every country every jurisdiction is different. In Australia, for example, and Hamdulillah. We're blessed in the sense that abbatoirs are major exporters of halal meat. So generally speaking, any lamb that you're going to get from New Zealand, any lamb that you're going to get from Australia is slaughtered according to halau principles, is slaughtered in a way that is acceptable for us. So that what you get delivered in the United Kingdom, Australian lamb and so on, it's it would be a very high quality. Same with much of the beef much of cattle in the same way. Where it gets a little bit murky is with things like chicken because there's different
stunning processes that are done. But generally speaking, if the land that you live in if the laws are slaughter laws, and they don't allow carry and they don't allow the consumption of meat that has died before blood was left from it, then normally speaking, you will find one group of a roadmap that hadn't been the school of thought and some opinions in others, that they would see that as being acceptable if you live under a structure that does not allow slaughtering the animal for other than Allah or other than God. So there's no name of any false deity that's proclaimed on it then that would be considered by them as being acceptable if it was a Christian buying selling cook you
know, maintaining that for you in sha Allah. Generally speaking, you want to be very careful with your meat you want to be very careful with your with our resources as Muslims going towards Muslim businesses and making Halal more accessible for ourselves and others in sha Allah does echolocate? It's a very important question and I'm sure it's relevant to many, many people who live in different parts, where finding Halal is not always as easy as it is.
For other places alone, I mean,
are Muslims allowed to buy on events or sales on Black Friday or Christmas sales. So we're not buying it because it's on Christmas we're buying it because of the sale and Muslims mashallah have always been the people who buy low and sell high. And the prophets I sell them says Baraka Allah with the Java, Allah is has put Baraka in buying and selling in trade and commerce. So don't kind of consider it on account of whether it's, you know, Black Friday, Black Friday, it just means the last Friday of the month of November before you know the rush of the sales and the markdowns kind of begin. So these kind of
invented marketing strategies. So you would look at every month in the year they try to have a different marketing strategy to you know, get consumption moving within the economy. So January is obviously you know, so obviously, December is is Christmas. November is boxing is Thanksgiving. October is Halloween, you know, each month, they've kind of then there's Mother's Day in March, and so on. There's Valentine's in February, there's new year's in January. Those are all calendar events, to try to make sure that there is some level of consumerism and consumption that is circulating money in the economy. Nothing more
Long with taking advantage of the sale it's not a creedal and belief issue, you're not buying that because you believe in a particular holiday your tradition or faith.
I said I want to come Jeff, I love night, prayers. May Allah Subhana Allah increase our love for sending before Him. May Allah blesses us with light in the darkness while other people sleep. May Allah Subhana Allah keep you firm upon this and hide it from others that it becomes even more sincere Allah from me. But whenever I do it, I feel very sleepy and weak throughout the day, I need your advice. So what I would say to you is try to get your dip your body dip in a particular rhythm. So once you get yourself, you know, in a particular rhythm, and you can ask your doctor to even assist you with melatonin pills that kind of regulate when you're going to wake and sleep. And just
to make sure that you get into a place where you're getting at least six, six and a half hours sleep which is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salam, and then you try to get a 20 minute 30 minute power nap at another part of the day, if possible. But if you can find that rhythm, and if you can wake up a little bit before Fetchit or if you could stay awake a little bit after a shot and do your prayers that will be a blessing for you in sha Allah.
We do we have another caller on the line.
Two corners, I said I'm on a cold caller How can I help?
I wanted to get up. I want to ask the question.
Girl can get married to
read well he wants to revert to a book. can you possibly questions for me?
So Muslims are advised to marry Muslims, we are not allowed to marry somebody who is not a faith unless they are afraid. So it's a very simple response. In that sense. There's no Imam that can officiate a wedding between a non Muslim man and a Muslim woman in terms of sanctifying it before Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, of course, people are very free to go out and do civil ceremonies and go out and, and live that kind of lifestyle. But it's not something that has the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala of faith, it is not a Muslim home. It's not a Muslim family. It's not seen in that sense in the eye of the community. And in the eyes of those who build that kind of structure for a
kneecap to be valid, it has particular rules that that confine it and imams are bound by those rules, because they are the laws of sent down by Allah subhanaw taala as per our beliefs. So that that kind of confines that doorway, it's not possible for any QA to be issued a religious Muslim wedding ceremony to be offered to somebody who is not a believer in a lot it would go counter to logic as well that you are asking somebody to, to hold somebody to the laws of the Quran and upon the tradition of the prophets. I said, and when we get married, you know, you're the offer of marriage is and to care. I give I offer this marriage, that you maintain it I let you tap in love
with Suniti Rasulullah and that you abide by the laws of God as dictated in the Quran and the tradition of the prophets or SLM. And as the dowry that you've agreed upon. hability Do you accept and the man says yes, I accept. So how do you accept something if you are not a believer in that it would not be it would not be permitted. In that sense. We have another caller on the line is Salam Alikum caller
said Mr. Alcohol
Yes, my brother.
In the Quran, Allah says in
the Quran that
Allah gives wisdom to whoever
whoever can pick them by
God has been given a great chair.
Could you tell me
how you can see from a person or the character looking at
has got intermodal distance. What are the signs that been
going on? What What are the signs the person is
and say oh, you can tell that he had to pick them up.
Because you have to be with good people. Right?
Join good people. So what are the few signs that you know? For? For?
A very good question.
So, in our tradition, a shared altar are forbidden, they have things become more understood when we see what they oppose. So the antonym of wisdom the antonym of hikma is rule is oppression and injustice. And the definition of hikma is to place things in the right place. And the definition of volume is to place things in the wrong place. So if somebody possesses Wisdom, what you notice in them is that they are asking the right person to do the right job. They're requesting the right thing from the right person, they're
giving each person the task that fits them. They are not burdening somebody with something they can't provide with an answer they can't give with finance that they can't, you know, spend.
A wise person is one who seeks to organize and put things in their proper place. So there are outward physical signs of wisdom. The first of them is an organized train of thought, an organized methodological
place of operation, you could see in them that they are dedicated to whatever pursuit that they commit themselves to that they agree I'm going to do they give it their whole heartedness. That is a sign of deliberation and wisdom. And also the opposite to it is that they move back from something that they can't do. They're not the first to put their hand up for something and say, I'll be the leader. If they know that this is a tough position. It's not the right. It's not it's not something that I'm capable. I'm willing to help and I'm willing to support the one who's there. But Rahim Allah Marie in Addis Ababa and epsa Allah's Mercy is always found with a person who knows where to
estimate and value themselves. So wisdom has the or Hickman in its essence has a very self reflective, self critiquing, self
identifying place in one's heart. Number two, it is also very capable of being one who is good in judgment in the character of others in the abilities of others in the fulfillment of the needs of others without extreme or negligence, and keeping it well balanced in the middle. Some of the outward signs of HiQnet hikma as described by the prophets of Allah who Allah you As Salam is that a person does not speak until they have thought about what they say, and that they are seldom prone to having to apologize for what they said previously. May Allah make us of those who have wisdom, in our words, in our behaviors in our actions, woman OTL hikma for the OHDSI young cathedra the one who
has been blessed with wisdom has been given a great share of this worldly life and the next May Allah subhanaw taala elevate us. We with our acquaintance of him, give us knowledge of the Quran and its practice Allah. I mean, I pray that you all have a wonderful end to your day, as we're coming to an end here in Australia was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Subhanak along we'll be handing a shadow Allah, Allah him and stuff that occurred to Willie was salam. Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.
