Is there a particular tool to assist me in increasing my memory?
Allah Subhana Allah Allah says to us in the Quran, few more committed xili that Allah subhanaw taala says well Rebecca, either in a seat, or who Lhasa rugby, or Obeah and yeah, do any Hiram in early Cairo. Shuddha Allah subhanho wa Taala says, make mention of your Lord, when you have been led to forget something. Now notice for us as Muslims, we don't normally say I forgot we used we usually say wouldn't see it I was made to forget or there's something that caused me to forget it. Musa alayhis salam, he has this statement found and stated by you shall also in Surah El Cap, where you shall forgot the fish by a particular place. He says when Matt and Sandy who illustrated no and
avocado, I was made to forget this on account of the sheath on causing me to be distracted. And therefore one of the first elements of trying to recover yourself and to recover your memory is to not to put too much pressure on yourself. And a lot of times we say why can't I remember this? You know, and especially for those who are in exams and other things. unburden yourself the reason your memory at times has lapses is because there is duress and stress and hardships and difficulties and things that are on your mind. So the first element is make mention of Allah which brings tranquility to you. So learn effective ways of remembering Allah subhanaw taala there isn't a particular
formula. There isn't a particular formula that is taught by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said if you make this dua it will help you remember something. However, there are particular statements that are only a matt have shared we don't say these are sunnah. But these are things that some of their own Ummah have, which with what they call Mojo, rub something through trial and error, they found benefit in them. And remember Milka human rights in general Adham in in one of his books about the importance of the salah and the salam upon the Prophet Muhammad's iclm That one of the specialities one of the specs
essential ingredients of the salah and the Durood and the salam upon the prophets I seldom is that it helps one remember something that they have been distracted or have been made to forget.
This is something Subhanallah in my life has been very beneficial for me. Increase your salah and the salam upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let it be one of the first things you do in the morning. Let it be one of the last things you do at night. Let it be something that you are preoccupied with yourself with as you drive. As you walk, as you stand and as you sit. Let it be a part and parcel of your life that you mentioned the one you love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam alaikum wa Salatu was Salam was it to America, let's say you know, whenever you know Muhammad, number two is, do I have the Quran workover busy BNI Amen, which is found in surah Taha,
some of the Allama have said that this is my job it has been beneficial, especially for students of knowledge, people who are studying that they ask Allah to increase their intake of knowledge and it's memorization. A third I will share with you a statement of Imam Shafi it's actually a famous poem. He says check out to eat our Kia into heavily for auto show Danny be talking about housing while Kylie hula in her Lane menorah and we're no Lulu Helio the alsi. An imam Shafi says as a young young man, he was beginning to try to seek knowledge and to learn the Quran and the Sharia, memorize the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salam. So he spoke to one of his teachers Wilkie Rahmatullah Ali,
who gave him advice he said, or shed any electrical mass he said, help yourself and gain memory strengthen your memory by lessening your sin, lessening that which erodes baraka of health, of wealth of sight of hearing. We as Muslims we believe in the metaphysical we believe that the spiritual problems we have can affect our cognitive and physical function. So you can prevent loss, prevent, trial and tribulation prevent loss of sight and hearing, you can strengthen your body through a spiritual connect
motion to Allah and lessening sin. So that's the number four is to engage in a healthy habit of walking and of exercising and of maintaining a balanced diet, you will find that there are certain moments in the day where you have greater energy greater tolerance, greater ability to remember things than others get sufficient sleep. And this is a sunnah of the Prophet it's an act of a bad to sleep is an act of worship. Allah subhanaw taala says what Jana Lena Lee pasa I destined sleep for a section of it to be for your retirement and work repose and recovery. also engage in mental exercises and nothing is better than reading and memorizing the Quran. So there is a statement that
is found that is attributed to the prophets I seldom, but it is likely a statement of the Sahaba some have raised it to the level of the prophets I seldom where it is said hot flyable en la you sleep who out of El Remo, that the one who has accompany the Quran in their life will not be struck down by the illness in the end of life meaning the loss of one's senses and dementia. And this is something that you see some of those who have committed themselves to memorization mental exercises, they're always connecting their synapses inside with recovery and keeping their brains active. It shows great cognitive function into their greater years. So hopefully that is a multidisciplinary a
greater kind of consideration and answer. And hopefully it's something that is beneficial in sha Allah.
Is it okay for women to add thread two in their hair? I'm not sure what you mean by thread.
So, if you mean week or something like that, please do clarify. What you mean by it in sha Allah.
Just so that we you know, I can comprehend exactly what you mean, in sha Allah.
a natural fiber, or if it's, you know, things of that nature, wearing weeks, normally comes under the attachment of hair, which is forbidden if the hair is human hair and it's meant to be as an act of deception. Allah subhanho wa Taala curses those who
Who add folds hair to themselves, who add false hair to themselves. However, it is permissible for a Muslim woman to wear an extension that is not of
human hair with the attempt of deception. It is permissible for a woman whose hair has fallen, for example, from seeking treatment, that she can have hair transplant because it's not changing the creation of Allah, it's putting back what was meant to be there. So there are different ways that we can answer this question. But to wear a wig under false pretense of human hair, and to make it and to pass it off as one's own is not acceptable. However, it is also considered acceptable to for those who have suffered loss due to chemotherapy and other things that they can wear artificial hair, that is not of a human capacity or a human hair in sha Allah, according to some of the odema I
don't know if that has been
closer to the question that has been asked or not in sha Allah, I'm not sure what is meant by thread? Is it permitted for sister's to wear makeup and lipstick in public? It depends on the extent of the makeup and lipstick, it depends on the the process of it, it depends on the intention that is behind it. So initially, any of these type of questions is and it's the same as you know, is it permissible for a brother, for example, to Gela his hair? Or to you know, you know, do these kinds of beautiful beautification factors seeking attention from people from other than his wife, for example, is this is this valid? So these kinds of questions, it's not just about men and women, it's
not just about women, and it's not just about makeup, it's about the conceptualization. So leave the women and makeup issue leave the men and gelling the hair and you know, opening my shirt and, you know, showing, you know, showing something under it to try to get attention. So let's broaden the question. Can that person seek sexual attention from others
by dressing in a certain way, speaking in a certain way acting in a certain way with somebody who is not their Metatron not permitted for them to engage in that sexual contact with the answer is no. So dear sister, if you're going to wear lipstick, because you want people to find you sexually available, attractive, whatever it may be, to try to you know, increase your attention amongst others in that context, then the answer is no, don't do it. And you know, dignify yourself in sha Allah. However, if it is something where you know you have a skin and you know
you know a skin issue or there's something that you are concealing or something that you are enhancing in a way that is not beyond what is the norm of other people or what is the norm for you, if there was no addition of the makeup, then that would be considered valid Inshallah, keep in mind that Allah subhanaw taala orders all of our all of the Muslim women, whether you Dina Xena Tahuna Illa Malhotra min let them not intend to display their beauty except what naturally must be, you know, displayed through the course of their day to day activities, their face in their hands, and you know, whatever it is for your MMA, your Korean amazima teen so that that they uncover the beauty
that they have been blessed with to those who are not meant to see it. So hold yourself to a higher degree of concern. May Allah subhanaw taala grant to Hiram Baraka in sha Allah. So there are levels to make up there are levels to its intent there are levels for what it's useful for. In general, you want to make sure that you are not using it in a way that is seeking sexual attention from others in sha Allah. Can you
can you pray with synthetic hair braiding extensions in Islam? As long as you're able to make although and water touches the roots of your hair, your actual hair? This is acceptable in sha Allah, is it necessary to keep checking my underwear for any Jessa? If I always feel like they are unclean? What I would say to that sister is the answer is no. We find nothing from the prophets I send them for men or women to check to see if any urine or anything has come out of them. Now for sisters who have have had a given birth, for example, and they've had you know issues with their retention
and their ability to hold that then there are specific rulings in our field that allow them to not worry about it until the time of prayer. They give themselves a clean wash, and they pack themselves up and they go pray. And if something comes out in their prayer, then there's nothing wrong with that. And this is something for men. And for women who have this as a condition, it's not something to worry about. So obsessing over it is now a problem. And this kind of question usually indicates that it's there is the beginnings if not, of compulsive disorder. So what I would say to the person asking this question, if you're still listening in sha Allah, do you have these kinds of suspicions
about other things that are not related to your event that are you, by nature, a little bit more compulsive in your behavior. If that is the case, you need to be
careful that you don't tip over into having bigger and bigger problems, and this becomes West USA, and if it's not for you, and I would recommend that you do speak to a clinician who can teach you secrets and techniques in how to manage this so that it doesn't become stressful for you in your life. So Pamela, I know that there are people who saw the early warning signs of compulsive disorders ignored it and a year or two go by and then they become very, very entrenched in some of the more difficult types of routines and activities that make life much more difficult for them, and for their families. May Allah subhanaw taala grant healing and ease in sha Allah. So it is not
necessary to check your underwear, men or women at a regular interval or just because I feel or it could be something made me feel that way, especially if it is during Salah in particular the Prophet warns about this in particular sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
can you do refer someone before performing Umrah and heritage diameter for yourself? This is somebody from an Medina. So a person is able to do a remodel on behalf of another person. If it is
before the diameter of Hajj, you are able to do that in sha Allah. There is no condition that you have to do a remodel for yourself before you do or Murad just because you visited Mecca and mocha Roma. Although I would say to you, my dear brother, my dear sister, that it would be best for you in sha Allah, to perform a criminal for yourself, feel comfortable that you have completed it, and then do for those that you value and are able to perform it for an upcoming iterations in sha Allah.
We have other questions in sha Allah that are coming through. We pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant us Hiram Baraka, Allahu Amin, and if you do have any questions, please do call in. We are looking for your questions in sha Allah and we are awaiting them live on air in sha Allah to Allah.
Another question that has come in
while on the men says Can women enter the masjid and sit in the masjid? Now, this is something that is Mahalia St. Laugh, there is differing opinion from it.
There is difference of opinion amongst the Allama What is known is that if somebody is going to show you the masjid, and is going to cause other for themselves or others than they should not be in the masjid. So if there is somebody who has an agenda, and they enter the masjid with an agenda that is wrong and forbidden, however, if the agenda is kept away from other people, and you know today in our times, there are much more modern ways of helping keep an adjuster away. We do not find a statement of the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam highlighting or saying to an individual, leave the masjid because you're in your menstrual cycle. What you do find is that there is the
contrary evidence to this, that there was nothing that was spoken and that that that it would be unbelievable in that sense that in all of the women that the prophets I seldom encountered, including his wives and daughters, that there wasn't some clear directive said it was important. However, the message should be something that is kept for the mention of Allah or the ABA of Allah. And min layan just a believer never becomes impure ever, and it doesn't matter what your condition is. And it's an invalid translation to say I'm in my menstrual I'm unclean. No, it's not that I'm unclean. It's that I'm unable to perform a bad as
A believer your soul is clean. You're a bar that is clean. The evidence for this is the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he encountered Abu Hurayrah. And as Abu Hurayrah, the Allahu Anhu saw him Abu Hurayrah was in a state of Jannah. But he was in a state of being Juno in sexual defilement. So when he saw the prophet Isaiah when we didn't want to shake hands with the Prophet didn't want to greet the Prophet, so he turned and went away, so that he can have a bath and then come to the prophets, I send them hurriedly, the Prophet said, what happened? He said, You have a soul, Allah can you know I was in a state of need Yassa the prophets I seldom
said Subhan Allah, you know, Glory is only to Allah, what would make you think that in other words, and mean a believer does not become soiled in an absolute sense?
So therefore, this Naja is a spiritual issue. It is not that I want you to consider that in the measure of the prophets I seldom there were those non Muslims who entered into the masjid men and women into the magic of the Prophet I sent them in his life. The prophets I send them did not ask is there every man is everyone, you know, clean everybody have a bath before you come in any women who have their menstrual stay outside, none of that is recorded in their statement of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so those are you will hear other opinions from other people. Usually the outcome that relate to that is because there is the worry that the Majid could become
spoiled or unclean inshallah with regards to staying in the masjid you know, if if there is time of prayer, don't sit in the middle of the line where everybody's praying and you're sitting and then they asked you What are you doing? And he said, Oh, I'm not allowed to I'm not I'm not my prayer time. The I consider that offensive, I consider that rude it would be wrong for you to do that. So move out of the way let people who are praying let people have the ability to pray take up that space and just step back or step outside while the Salah is being done and then come back into the lecture or the Talk or you know the eat dinner or whatever it is that you were there for in that
sense, Inshallah, keep in mind as well sometimes when we speak about masjid, we're speaking about the whole building but rather the masjid is the place where that is made work for the IBA of Allah subhanaw taala rather than the whole complete structure
I'm not sure there's a question that has come through but I'm not sure how to read it or understand it. So we'll leave that one inshallah
we'll take one more question the evening Allah heater Allah before our break, is it okay for women to travel and go on holiday with her friends for a few days without a Macron? That's a question that I think any wife and their husband should have a very frank and honest discussion, this concept of our holidays I'm not really sure the context of it so I came to answer such a question and cause fitna in your home What do you mean by holiday? Is it a sister's trip to
a Turkish resort that is women's only you know, you know what, what is the context of that? So as Muslims we are very private in our affairs, we do know that there are numerous Hadith of the Prophet I sell them and restricting travel for those who don't find safety and security. So those are the things that become really important to consider. Inshallah, I look forward to your return after our short break for the solo time in London. I look forward to seeing you back soon and hearing your questions live on air was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
which question do you find difficult? What was that last question my dear brother, it can matter what is it? A comma? Oh, I think is Is it is it compulsory for me female to make a comment. Okay, during compulsory and Naturalia prayers, so to call that a comma?
I think so. Okay. All right, you guys it's a K and I was like, I yeah, I was like it. I thought maybe it's like a you know, a foreign word in that sense. Yeah. All right.
I mean, obviously, I've just copied and pasted it Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no, I understand. It's not for me, Allah he better come. What am I
Do I might take some of the questions from the social media in sha Allah? Okay, sounds like yeah, it does seem a bit quiet even yesterday we were struggling to get any calls
from about a cattle. It's not just you
all right, we got a couple of questions here on the social media Instagram for those of you please put it in the question bar and I will take your questions on air live in sha Allah read them out. We have a question, can you share what is the delille some Imams use that allows people to eat meat that is not slaughtered in the Islamic way. And please share what is the correct position. So I'm not aware of any delille where Imams would say that you can eat meat that is not slaughtered. What we are allowed to eat is eat the meat of the people of the book that is slaughtered, that is not offered in sacrifice to other than Allah. So there are other faiths that when they slaughter they
will say you know in the name of you know, I'm slaughtering this in the name of whatever. So that is haram for us because Oh hyndland Rila it's been given in an offering to other than Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in our Sharia meat is considered haram until proven halal. It's one of the opposites in Sharia. So you have to be very careful when it comes to the Kitab oval Outremer we are very careful on what is halal. But when we establish what is halal, we establish it with a very general precepts taught by the prophets I send them so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ate a variety of beings ate meat that was slaughtered by the people of
the book, ate meat that was offered to him by those who were Jew and Christian. We know the famous Hadith of the woman
who tried to poison the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she offered me that she had poisoned it, and she gave it to him to eat and as the prophets I seldom ate the first bite the poison began to take active
you know, action in him and the prophets iclm spat it out, but we see that he consumed meat from somebody other than those who were much Muslim butchers and slaughter men. And this is well established in the Sunnah and the documents of our deen. So how do what what is halal for us are halal hola como iba to herbally Maliko model
you know, Allah says hopefully my legal money made our demo lemon Cinzia warmer. Oh, hey, Leila, he went on holiday to Walmart, oh, that Walmart or the
one that Akela said that all of these are different things that have been made Haram is a lot list in Surah Al Qaeda,
but that which a lot are hidden electron parama levena, Otto Kitab, hindaun Leko auto animal companion level that you and I are allowed to eat from the food and the slaughtering of the people of the book. So those who you are probably referring to is that they take the opinion that if you live in a Western country that is governed by a Judeo Christian doctrine, where they are not slaughtering animals in the name of other gods, and they are bloodletting they are letting the blood out chickens, goats, cows.
Lamb and they are letting the blood out then the meat that is offered by them is considered halal. This is the humbly opinion and you don't have to delve in show me your factories and all that kind of thing. It is not meant to be in that way if it is known that it is not in contradiction to the spirit of our faith by doing it in other than Allah subhanho wa Taala
Can you remind me how I can rectify my Soldeu if I don't remember if I've done four or three or four rock on a hold this to when we come back? It might be a benefit to lots of people in sha Allah.
Another I dreamt of a kebab. What does that mean? Okay, not sure about that. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grants you happiness and lots of kebabs in your life
Alright, let's see what's on the YouTube channel in sha Allah
social media is Les
I'm sorry that some people are saying my LinkedIn live stream keeps freezing up I'm not really sure why
can we make our own dua in such that during tahajjud? Yes, you can make it in in your own dua in your own language. In your Slava in voluntary prayer, some are even say
In your regular prayers, better to do it in your voluntary prayers like the head, you can ask Allah for that which is within your needs and within your scope and in a language that is meaningful to you in sha Allah just a common law
so we will ask our sister
that brother or sisters question how can you remind Can you remind me how I rectify my salah if I don't remember how many Ellicott three or four inshallah we'll take a look at that question together be ninja he had a
lot of attic we are coming back live now towards
Accepted Lachman meme
okay 10 987-654-3210 And your life and hamdulillah Salah Salatu was Salam o Allah Rasool Ullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam well that does that go off here for rejoining with us. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant to hire and Baraka, Allah. I mean, there's a number of questions that have come in through our WhatsApp and email services in sha Allah and some of my social media. And one of the questions from my Instagram, can you remind us how I can rectify my salah? If I don't remember if I have done three? Or could it be for Raka This is a common problem that many of us of course, whether Imams, or those being led by Imams face. And in fact, it's one of the things that happened with the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that we and you and I can learn the solution. One of my most favorite Hadith collected by the Imam Al Bukhari, in fact, relates to an incident similar to this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led that similar to last an added a rocker, he stood up and added a rocker and because the Sahaba take their religion from the practice of the prophets, I seldom, they just followed along and did not make a sound. And after the prayer when the Prophet turned and faced everyone, he could see that there was something that was amiss. He said, What was it and they said, Yeah, rasool Allah, should we now pray at five like, is it you know, is this the
norm now? It's not four anymore? Is it? Why do you ask? And they said, Well, you know, you prayed an extra rock on the prophets. I said, Lim said, Why did you not inform me? Why did you not say, Subhan Allah in them and eversharp and sacramentum. So I am just a mortal, a human being. I forget, as you forget some of Allah and he was salam. And therefore Allah subhanaw taala caused that numerous instances where the prophet corrected aspects of his solder, so that you and I would know how to correct it. So if you have prayed three Raka, you are sure you pray three Raka. But you're not sure if you prayed for then your assumption, according to our fifth as Muslims, is Elbonian or Annelie
Athene is to establish certainty and build on it. So I'm third certain that I prayed, I prayed three, then that is what I have prayed. And now I build on top of the three. So three it is it could be four, but that doesn't matter. I'm not sure of it. If there is no certainty, I established what I'm searching of. I know I definitely prayed three. I remember sitting in the middle and standing up. So definitely three I've done but I don't know if I've done the fourth. So then you establish three stand up and do the fourth block ah Insha Allah, that is how we would fix
that situation in sha Allah.
We have another question
that has come through
why you had Okay, that's a really, really short, detailed question. Why hedge? I guess the question is, why do Muslims have to spend so much money travel to another part of the world, leave all family friends, for an extended period of time, do certain rituals, certain actions and that it is such a momentous occasion for them as Muslims? Allah subhana wa to Allah says in surah in the Quran, Willie now while in Lehi, where will he learn he Allah Nursia hidden jewel Beatty Minister Tara la Sevilla, and it is due for you upon a law that you perform the pilgrimage to his sacred house of worship. For a
Anyone who is able to fulfill it, so that requirements of fulfilling it is that you have enough finance enough physical ability and enough reserve for your family that you leave behind. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam performed how God intended to perform it more and more times sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he only performed one complete hedge, which was called Digital Wada. The final farewell hedge where he eloquently gave the final advice to his ummah, and he passed away 81 Days Later Upon returning to Medina. Hajj is an annual experience and pilgrimage for Muslims. It is meant to be something that helps us accomplish nearness to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and each of the rituals of Hajj plays an important role in the psychology, spirituality physicality, economic output of all of us as Muslims. So the definition of Hajj is an obligatory act of worship that is fulfilled in a particular place, doing particular act of riba that is defined by the conduct of the prophets I send them he said, Who do I need Manasseh come learn your Haji rituals from me. It is obligatory upon every Muslim male or female, who is an adult physically financially capable in taking an undertaking the journey and having been able to secure their family in their absence. It is to be done once in a lifetime for those who can afford it. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah has made
the Hajj something that is meant to be a spiritual purification the prophets I seldom said than the one who comes and performs Hajj and does it without breaking the rules that have been established by Allah. And does it mob rule does it with its completeness with the intent and actions complete, then there is no reward, no reward lesser for them than Janna. And they return to their family from Hajj, as if they are new born reborn Kemah well into two more in the way that their mother first gave birth to them. May Allah bless us with Hedgy this year, those of us who have been many times and those of us who seek to go for our first time in sha Allah. So first reason why Hajj it's a
spiritual purification. It helps you connect with your repentance, have self introspection, repentance and reflection of Allah. And it is something that allows you to perform rituals that strengthen your commitment and submission to Allah. Allah said, don't cut my nails. I won't cut my nails. Don't remove hair, I won't remove hair. Allah said Don't cover your head. Don't cover your head.
Allah said don't wear normal fitted clothing. Wear two sheets, I'm going to wear two sheets I said meet to the order of Allah. Number two, it is teaches us the importance of following the Sunnah. Because everything you do and had you're gonna say What did the Prophet do here? What did he make here? Where did he stay here? Where did he spend the night here? When did he begin? Do I have alpha everything? It teaches you inputs upon you the necessity of making Muhammad your guide in life sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Number three, unity and brotherhood. Why Hajj because of the unity Subhan Allah may Allah return us to Hajj you are immersed in the Ummah, the prophets I seldom the tall and
the short in men and the women and the children the lighting color, the dark in color, the Arabic that not everybody is there and they all say limpy come back and meditate. Oh Allah, I have come to serve. Oh Allah, I have come to worship you. Yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala either. It also teaches us to connect with our ancestry that we are linked to Ibrahim we are linked to a smile we have a love for Musa it is also a life changing experience. Yeah, I mean, for some who are they've had a pain and they want to release it they want I want a new start I want a fresh beginning I want to have a you know I want to wipe my slate clean. I want to press a press pause and rewind and restart
and tape over it had that's why it is hedge. There's also practical reasons why hedge is so significant.
It strengthens your iman and Allah subhanaw taala because you're doing something and you could see it radiated by everyone around you. Millions are doing the same that I'm not alone. I'm not. I'm not I'm not scarce, I'm not. I'm not singular, I'm part of an ummah and it's magnificent. So Hajj is a journey of devotion and submission and surrender to Allah Subhana Allah that Allah commands us to fulfill what he has ordered.
deep into your faith that you've accomplished something that Allah has said to do.
It also levels us equally, you know, you begin, you will see people who are multi multi millionaires and they're wearing the same white sheets, Subhan Allah, and they're all wanting to do what you want to do, they want to have a hot bath and cut their nails and put on perfume again, and they just, you know, And subhanAllah it's incredible, how had zeros all of us in a sum value together, had you of course, is also about the diversity and the appreciation of the variety of our culture. And the morality that we learn, you know, to, you see somebody on the side who's just tired, so you carry their pay, or you pay for their wheelchair if they need it, or, you know, you try to find things to
do enhance, that go beyond you that go to the service of others, that perhaps somebody will carry this back home and share it with their family, their friends, their children, and say, I don't know who this guy is. He was this wonderful Egyptian Canadian, married to a Turk from Australia. And he just saw me sitting there on the side and my foot was hurting and you know, he gave me water and he picked me up and he carried my bag and he made sure I was lost and I didn't know where he's going he got me to where I needed to be. I don't know his name. May Allah forgive him. May Allah bless his children. And that could be you Subhan Allah, that is why Hajj that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada inspire
within our hearts within our community, that desire to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah through the enormous fulfillment of Hajj. Allahumma Amin mela returned us to Hajj many, many more times we eat the Isla Allahumma me pray Allah subhanaw taala accepted from all of us and the Hajj of the past, and grant us a fresh beginning and a new start, that we are blessed with it. logMAR I mean,
does that go lawfare? We have a few more questions that have come in Subhan Allah, your voices have been silent. Haven't heard many of you today? Usually it's nonstop. But I guess everybody is a little bit sleepy this Wednesday. May Allah accept Yeah.
Is it true that if a non Muslim person gives you food on Christmas Day, that you don't eat it or any other day, I've never heard of this. In fact, we know that Allah Yahweh the Allahu anhu, he was given food by the Persians, who were non Muslims at the time, on their day of no rose, which was like a spring occasion. And they had given him a suite. And this is narrated for mozarella that hold it as an authentic narration. And there are other narrations of obviously, people lesser than either you've never before live enjoying it. And, you know, he enjoyed a treat on the day of their festivity in sha Allah, for a for APDS, a Christmas religious symbol. So if it's like the wafer of
what they consider the body of Christ or things like this, then of course, that we don't consume, because that is a religious symbol. But if somebody's being nice, and they baked up an apple pie, that is not for a religious sacrament or practice, other than there is nothing wrong with enjoying that insha Allah.
My mom, my mother, always blacks males, me emotionally, I felt the rank of a mother. And, and all of that, and when I tried to tell her she can't cover come over to my matrimonial home without prior notice, because I tell her she cannot come over to my home without prior notice. It's becoming an issue between my husband and I please, what do I do?
So Subhan Allah may Allah subhana, Allah, Allah grant Johanan Baraka, the prophets, Allah lies and says to us that the most important people in our lives are our parents, in particular, our mothers. And I know, it may not be what you want to hear, your mother has a right to you, she has a right to you in the capacity that you are able to provide. So I'm not saying to you wreck your home and disobey. You know, if your husband and her don't see eye to eye and she causes havoc, but I will say to you, then instead of meeting your in your matrimonial home, set a time where you go visit her more often set a time where you visit her without your husband more often take permission say to
him, you know, the chef said that perhaps it's not good that she's coming as often as she wants to come, but I still need to remain in contact with her. Perhaps the one she makes for me will be the reason that I am saved at a time of hardship and difficult
See, perhaps even outside her own lifeline and time of her own life. So be careful with the dua of your mother. Because the dua of the mother is answerable by Allah. And the prophets. I seldom warns us as parents. He says, Let the rule lead. Don't make too, against your children to see buena serratus Jabba because you may make dua and it is answered in a moment by Allah subhanaw taala. And then it will upset you that it was answered. So be careful with your mom, be careful with their heart, be careful with your husband and the respect that you owe to your home and wanting to maintain its order. But there has to be a give and take. So it's not possible that she comes as
often as she wants to your home, then make sure that you fulfill her HAC by being able to visit her Empoli in sha Allah. And I can tell you, my dear sister, my dear brother, that there are moments in our life where we assume that the absence of a person will be tolerable, but when they are gone, it is devastating to us and our families thereafter, because the thought of there too, at times is lost. What can you do to spread Dawa online. So what I usually say to masajid is don't worry about the online, like invest in your leaders. So
most people want to do things for others. And the masjid wants to provide facilities for the people who come to pray. They want to provide good carpets and you know aesthetics and good smell. And all of that is wonderful. But you the essential need is to provide for those who lead your community, provide them training, job security, health care, provide them the ability that when they give religious opinions that are valid, that it's not contradicted on account of other non religious reasons. Empower your imams in your community. And I don't say this as as any man, but I say this out of true love. Empower your community by empowering those who are meant to lead. And if you have
somebody in the position, who is not leaving the community who is not capable, it's usually because you did not want to hire someone who is worthy of that role and responsibility. And you will only get what you are willing to commit financially towards. So get high caliber people get people who work and give their life towards their community that they can rise up and raise up with you committed to your ideals and to the betterment of your community in sha Allah. So I would say to a masjid that wants to spread Dawa online, is give your Imam find a good Imam and give that Imam empowerment and training and media courses and, and, you know, teach him how to, you know, edit
videos and all of these and give him those kinds of tools that he can do it, you know, say, look, you're not leaving the period all day and you know, maybe you can do some of these wonderful things and initiatives, let them be go getters in sha Allah let them feel empowered, may Allah system to good.
We have another question in sha Allah.
Are we allowed to give blood in donation giving blood is an act of sadaqa irrespective of who is going to receive that blood. So giving blood life is giving life to another And subhanAllah it might be that you earn the reward of giving somebody life without knowing two months down the road. The blood that you donate and match somebody that was in a car accident a child or a father or a mother and account of them receiving that from you. They were able to survive the surgery that they were undergoing. And that becomes a phenomenal job and reward the rest of their life the good that they perform. May Allah make them of those who do and live a good life is in good consequence for you.
Women out here have a cat in the mafia, NASA Jamia? Allah says it in the fifth chapter of the Quran, that the one who secures life allows a person to live gives life to somebody who almost lost it. It's as if he has given life to all of humanity. May Allah make us of those who are in the assistance and the fulfillment of the needs of others Allahumma Amin era that I mean
all right, well, looking at a few more questions in sha Allah
we have a question
about Sudoku to sell. How do we do this? sujood the process
region of forgetfulness, what is the way of fulfilling or making a fulfillment? So it depends if you made the mistake in your Salah
by adding or taking something out. So if you
if you have omitted something out of the essentials of prayer,
then you are to fulfill the thing that you forgot. So get up and do it and then make your sujood and then say set up make to sudo TSA make you to here to here to Lillah wa salatu OPA Yvette and make to sudo Tahoe like any sujood and then say a Salah monocle if you have added something to the Salah. So if you have added an extra rock and everybody goes Subhanallah you know you're sitting and then you stood up, and everybody says Subhanallah sit back down, you've added something, say your to yet say your to hear to the law, or Salah to have a bat
and say take B make your sujood makes a lamb. Make your tech beer while you're seated make to sujood sit back up and say salam again. So let me repeat that in sha Allah. If you have made a mistake by taking something out of Salah instead of praying three, four raka I prayed three and then I sat down everybody said Subhan Allah so I stand up and I do the fourth rock then I sit down for the final day yet. After I say it to here to the level saltwater you bet until the end. I then say why you're sitting before mine sudo before my Salla
Allahu Akbar i make such that Allahu Akbar, I make Sajida then I make said in sha Allah, then I mix it up Salam is only done once. If I added something to the salah. If I made a mistake that added something, I made three sujood instead of two. And people said Subhan Allah so that I correct myself. I do that here to the law. And I conclude the prayer said Armonico Murata laws and Armonico Mattila while still city Allahu Akbar and make to sujood and then I sit back up after the second Ursula Alikum warahmatu la persona or equal more Rahmatullah. I do not need to make the day yet again. I do not need to make the day yet again in sha Allah. So if you take something out of Salah,
you make the salam you make your to sujood before Salam, if you added something to the Salah, you say salam make to sujood then say salam, one more time in sha Allah does icon Allah here.
