Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah Hamza shepherd in WA Salatu was Salam o Allah say you did more saline. So you didn't know habibi. Now whenever you know Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa
aalihi we're sending to Sleeman Kathira it's your brother. Yeah. Hey, Brahim, coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia. I'm happy to connect with you as usual every Wednesday at noon, London time, it happens to be 7pm here in Perth a little bit after sold off and measured. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala was allowed us to connect in our different time zones and places that he allows our souls to connect in the affetto that we can be fortunate to be in the company of our nmbu Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We acknowledged the wonderful effort of our dear brothers and sisters at Islam channel for providing us this wonderful vehicle where we can
gather together seeking the Mercy of Allah subhana wa Adam, and I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes the gathering and the time that we have together a gathering of souls and contentment that leads us to the mellifera and the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada and that our departure from each other even though virtually is one that seals our reward with Allah so agenda as always this is as always this is an attempt in sha Allah at receiving your phone calls and and having to do that we have our first caller already on the line we pray that we'll also pendant with the animated blessing our together a lot. I mean, our first caller said I'm on equal water from Tula he
said I'm Anakin caller How can I help
Masha Allah from Kohler, how can I help
in this book
we'll do our best man lots of kinda with Allah make it easy in sha Allah, how can I help my brother
one of the ships getting
constantly knocked down, or the punch.
You should keep them unless they come and
very often to keep snapping you
physically, mentally continue. And I just wondered what the good ones
were always going to die
coming to the city
lucky very frequently, does like a lot for your question. At first I would ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to remove all harm and to provide us the strength to find a Victor and the support in whatever it is that is troubling us. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, for whoever finds himself in a similar circumstance where they feel overwhelmed or that they are under the pressure of other people. I will prophets I send them used to make a dua he used to say, Allah in the arrow the wicked mean ha Amin, relegated Dane will return. Oh ALLAH and you could say even in English, anyone listening, oh Allah I asked you to protect me from the surrounding of my deaths against me. And by
being over stood or stood over by the tyranny of other people or other men. We ask Allah subhana wa taala, to remove harm and to protect us and to assist us and to avail us and support us. I want you to know that the feeling of
being targeted and overwhelmed, especially if it's on account of faith, or a pawn and due to religious practice is something that was felled by those who were better than us in previous generations. We all take comfort in the story of the land in Nevada, what the Allahu Anhu the abdomen of the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the great, great companion of the Messenger of Allah, who was
was put in harm's way in numerous accounts and in numerous ways. So whether it's physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual, financial, economic, any type of abuse is condensable. Not just as a matter of faith, but as a crime, and that has legal recourse. So to answer this question, it really has three important stages. The first is, every individual is meant to fulfill their spiritual, economic, physical
needs, to the best of their abilities, and to provide assistance where they feel that they are not able to support themselves. It is not enough for a person to receive abuse, and have the ability to be able to change that circumstance and simply invoke Allah the Almighty to help them. What we do know is that the prophets of Allah, Allah He was taught us as Allah tells us in the Quran, in Allah Allah yoga, Yiruma defoaming, hatha yoga you will see that Allah does not change the circumstance of a person or a people or a community, whatever it may be, until they begin to make the change themselves. So we are active in our patients. The concept of sub is not one where we just wait for
change to come from a divine presence, Allah subhanho wa taala. But in fact, it is obligatory to take an S v s verb, to take the steps to assist ourselves and to assist others. The prophets I seldom you would say to those who have as narrated by the man Muslim, Give victory to your brother to your friend, whether they are oppressing or being oppressed. They said O Messenger of Allah, if our friend is being wrong, salallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know how to help them, we will stop the other aggressor. But how do we help our friend if they are being tyrannical and oppressive to others, he sets a law Who are you asserting him that you restrict them, which shows us that we have
an active process in all of our affairs in life, we cannot just sit idly by. So that's the first part the first advice. The second advice is to recognize that no harm befalls the believer in this light, except that it removes a greater harm in this life for the next, or it purifies from an error that they have incurred, or it makes them worthy and resilient of future harm and be able to be withstanding of it, and an icon of patience and righteous conduct for others to follow. So when we see the prophets lie, Selim was being hurt and being wrong. It's not because he couldn't defend themselves. And it's not it's not because Allah could not assist him. But it is to show us that
resilience at times may require us to be able to work through the problem, and to be of those who are resolute in it. The third and final thing is as a part of our faith as Muslims, there is no obligation Let me repeat that there is no obligation to forgive a person who has continued upon an obstinate path where they are not seeking the pleasure of Allah in their conduct with others, it is better for us to forgive them because we take within our power, the ability to choose how I deal with it. And when you forgive others, from your heart, it gives you that strength that I'm in power over that I have the choice to forgive or not, but there is no obligation upon a believer to forgive
someone who has wronged them in harm that molested them, stole from them, hurt them, and acted in a way that is criminal, or religiously, unfounded and unacceptable. We pray that Allah subhana wa Taala assists us in old regard. With regards to this specific question, can we instruct that somebody not be a part of our funeral possession or to have a role in it? Or I don't want this person to speak at my graveside? The answer is yes. If it is within our will and testament, whether orally or in writing, Allah Who to Anna and May Allah send His mercy alone. I mean, we have another question that has come in another caller on the line as salam aleikum caller How can I help?
I heard that it
Get involved in
anything alive. So warm
up. But now we have
a lucky medic Viki and haven't did that. So with these kinds of questions, we I want to be a little bit careful in sha Allah. For some people, credit cards are an essential matter of life. It's one of the ways that the financial system works. And for us to have a credit rating that allows us opportunities in other aspects in life, it becomes necessary for us to show that we are able to manage our credit. So having a credit card that say has a balance of 1000 pounds or $1,000, that you use very liberally, that you pay off before the due date. And that does not earn interest, because you are not in debt to it is something that for some types of people, those who travel, those who
have young families, those who are starting off with business that needs an updated credit file, it may become an essential and maybe something permissible for them. Then there's the opposite end those who want a credit card, so they can purchase things that they cannot afford, because they do not have the cash that are not things that are essential to their livelihood. So they want a new or a new bag, or they want new shoes, and it's going to mean that they're going to pay off that credit card over an extended period of time and be in a state of usury and rebirth. That is something that is prohibited because it will lead to the greater harm of being under the overwhelming sense of
debt. I would say to them, you would not and should not develop a credit card in your name. If this is the aim that you see it in between the two, those who it's permissible for and those who aren't permissible for is the gray area of many of us, where for example, if you need to rent a car, they don't take the debit card, which is attached to your bank account. They want actually a credit card. So there are certain moments where not having a credit card can be a great debilitation, I would say and I would caution the concept of credit for us as Muslims is one that we are very careful with. And we don't want to be in debt with anyone whatsoever. Number two, I would say that being in debt,
even without riba even without interest is not where Muslims want to be. We do not see debt as an asset, as maybe taught by certain people, inviting people to take on debt and it's your way to avoid taxes. This is not the spiritual way. The prophets Allah Allah Allah He was certainly would not lead himself janazah over somebody who owed people debts and had not paid them until the debts had been paid. He would ask somebody else to leave it that's how grave of a sin it is. In an authentic hadith the Prophet I sell them also tells us that a person who owes people their debts and has not fulfilled them, if they pass away, even if they are a Shaheed a martyr in the cause of faith. Their
soul does not is suspended between heaven and earth until their debts are paid. May Allah assist us and protect us Allahumma Amin
We have another caller on the line in sha Allah.
We have a comment we have sorry, excuse me a question that is coming in on the on the service in front of me. It says Santa Monica, I wanted to know how many Raka is the Juma prayer and there's an expansion to that question. Is it the two raka of salatu booboo for the chutzpah and to raka that is prayed in German. That that makes the full record of the Juma prayer. This is an interesting question and there are different interpretations from the roadmap. First, I want you to know that's a lot to do. Why is an independent prayer separate from the book read prayer that we normally do on Monday to Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday is a unique day. The prophets I send them said
they're eating pizza you will or there is a day of Eid of religious observation of worship in the heavens of the earth. The prophets are inserted themselves in authentic hadith hallelujah woman poplar, okay he shipped the most blessed day that the sunrises upon is a Friday is the day Adam was created, entered into Ghana brought down into earth. It is the day that the day of judgment will be summoned and it is a day of us congregating together so
A day of doom is a very important day for us as Muslims. The prophets I send them also said that one of the specialities of his prophethood is that he was locked and guided to the day of Juma other than the day of the Sabbath and other than the day of Sunday that other monotheistic faiths may adopt the day of Joomla is the Day of Gathering for the worship of Allah. It is an obligation upon every able bodied man who is not traveling and who has the ability to come to perform the prayer to be in attendance in it, it is being offered in sha Allah, the day of Joomla and philosophy Joomla is made up of the hook tuba that is provided by the Imam which is in the form of two separate short
talks, that is built upon the reminder of one's obligation to Allah in all of the four men head. That main construct of hope but to do more, is to recite a verse from the Quran and command people of Taqwa Allah azza wa jal to make celebration of the life of the prophet so I send them and to recite a verse of the Quran that makes football Jumar it is a signal to split it into two parts. Those two parts are not in any way making up the solder or follow up of that hook but is separate in its effect. The prophets I seldom used to make them do more in different times of the year, in certain times of the year in the summer months he would make it early even before the sun had
arrived. That's a local book read time. So overtime means as the well the sun is right above our heads the prophets I seldom used to pray hope but they do want before the sun I arrived there so it's separate to solo to book then in the profits I sell important to lead with a loud read citation to rock I've just to rock of solder and that to rock out was recited usually with the reading of the first workout Sunday's multiplicand and I'm Akashi and the second raka or sudo can Jumaane and Sora Luna food in the first and second rock all of those were sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa, it was like it was suddenly there is no particular Sunette prayer before the Joomla or
after it that is similar to look you don't pray for before or two after. It is not the pseudonym or ACA like Salah to look, we do have narrations of the Prophet would pray to have prayers up to eight o'clock before Salah to book and we have narrations he would pray for rock at home or to rock out or for rock out in the masjid after Salah to do more but it was not consistent each and every week that it becomes a pseudonym or ACA. This is a quick synopsis of the Juma prayer the hook. It is separate from the prayer of books. And you do not need to pray Sabol to door after Salah to do one. This is a prayer that takes the place of the solder and eliminates a lot of book without a lot to go now being
needed to be made up Wallah with the iron atom. We have another question that has come in. I'm full of sins and my parents hate me. I do not see any hope that either is Allah I will say to you the word that begins the Quran and hamdulillah the rock behind me. All praise is due to Allah and Hamdulillah He is the Lord of all existence, and humbly that that it's not your parents who will decide your happiness or your sorrow and Hamdulillah that it's not your parents who qualify whether you are worthy of Allah's mercy or not, and hamdulillah it's not even yourself, who is able to hold charge of whether you're a good person or not. That's the Mercy of Allah the praises to Allah, He is
the Lord of mankind. Pick yourself up my dear brother, my dear sister, recognize that you are more valuable to Allah than you may have made yourself valuable to yourself. Do not ever extinguish the light of being one who can turn back to Allah with one step in the authentic hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he quotes Allah Allah speaking almost as if to you now you directly me directly. Yeah, you buddy. Oh my servants, low and welcome. What is the first of you to the last of you from the first of us to the last of humanity, on the Day of Judgment, if the ins and the good if all of you, men and women, human and even Jean, were to stand in one place and asked me for your
needs, and I was to provide it to you, it would diminish nothing of my bounty and mercy. Allah subhanho wa Taala also said
susc in an authentic statement of the Prophet, quoting Allah, yeah. apti Oh my servant if you were to feel the heavens in the earth with sin, so don't mess with me. And you just asked me once for forgiveness. I'll follow to Lackawanna Valley, I will forgive you. And it is no problem for me. My dear brother, my dear sister who asked this question and others like us who listen to it, and have pain in our heart from our own mistakes in life, there are all of us who are sinners before Allah recognize that Allah Subhana Allah is al Rahim. Allah says you and I in Oran Alia Eva de and Medina software other proceeding that
say to them, oh my servants, he still refers to you and I, as a servant, who have transgressed and wrong themselves who have gone to the limits that they should not go have gone beyond what I've allowed, have gone to where they should not be no interruption at the mercy of Allah always remain less natural non blocking that never despair in my mercy. In Allah Allah.
Allah forgives all sins. Allah describes his mercy by saying, well, West Seattle, equal let's say, My Mercy, my compassion, my forgiveness is more encompassing than all things and whatever scenes you have my dear brother or sister and I, that we carry before Allah, they are things and Allah's mercy is greater and more encompassing than that. Do not ever give up, give up hope. Do not ever feel you cannot just simply stop and ask for forgiveness. Even if you were to return to it again. Even if you were to stumble again. Ask again and you will be forgiven. Allah refers to himself as a fool. And half him and Allah, Allah for is the one who continues to forgive, even if the sins are many. Allah
is Allah half of the one who forgives, even if the sin is great. And Allah is far the only one who forgives without holding malice. Subhana Allah are the one who has wronged themselves before him. My dear brother, my dear sister, I ended this final minute with you before our break. Do not ever give up hope and Allah azza wa jal know that your value is with Allah, not even with your own self and your heart. Allah loves you more than you love your own self. And whatever challenges you face. It is with Allah's help and support with that one word, oh Allah accept me and forgive me that all of it can be undone. May Allah accept you and forgive you and elevate you and support you and assist
you and put hope in your heart. And may Allah light your path and lead you to good company who can assist you in the darkness. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to assist you with His angels and to protect you from all harm will suddenly love him I was sending aniseed now Mohammed will come back after our short break in Sharma.
Santa Monica and for those of you who are with me online on my social media streams, I'm happy to take some of your call your questions in sha Allah while we are on our break with the satellite TV with Islam channel in sha Allah. All right, I'm looking through YouTube and Facebook at the moment. And we have a question here I have a question about the concept of forgiveness from a religious perspective. Is it correct to say that I have forgiven someone if I make the intention to Allah, that I do not wish for them harm, no forgiveness if someone is that in your heart, you assume that Allah is the best of judges, that Allah subhana wa Tada will deal with them in the way that Allah
knows they have deserving up that Allah will be your Victor and support and whatever it is that you have felt that you relinquish it to Allah, you take power over the situation, you say, Oh Allah before you, I put this matter in your hand and your judgment, Oh Allah, show me what is right and what is good and support me in that which will come and you do not let your guard down, that you become blindsided again, with another problem or another mistake.
We have another question in sha Allah.
I said I'm wondering, what do you recommend for good physical and mental health? The prophets Allah Allah who it was sent them, he was asked by a person who said O Messenger of Allah, I don't know how to ask Allah in the way you do and Abu Bakr and Omar, you know, I'm not very eloquent
So the prophets I send them said, Say, Allah has
been highly masa and I mean what Abdul Rasool Luca whenever you can commit simply in English, oh Allah I asked you for whatever good the prophets I seldom asked you for, I know Allah I asked you to protect me from whatever evil the Prophet asked to be protected from. So that simple dua is the best route. You don't even have to make an IRB, you can make an order, do English, French, whatever language, pour your heart out to Allah, this is the best way of making your DUA in sha Allah, that is, is meaningful to you in sha Allah.
We have a few other questions in sha Allah.
If I have forgiven someone, can I still not like them? And the answer, of course, is yes. And by the way, as Muslims we do not have in our tradition, the obligation on forgiving others, there is no obligation that I must forgive them for me to be forgiven by Allah. But Allah reminds us that if we know our own mistakes, and we see that that person has made a mistake, and is now you know, has understood it has come back to Allah has come back to us is one thing, you know, to make it right is returning what was wrong or wrongfully taken is a penalty, then we should not be so callous that we say I will never forgive you. It doesn't matter what you do. That's something we should be careful
with. And Allah says, Do you not want me to forgive you in sha Allah, however, you are always and must always remain cautious. A believer is never stolen from the same hole twice in sha Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protected. Let me look through some of our Instagram questions in sha Allah, there's hamdulillah a good number of people with us today, man almost kind of what Allah grant us how you do let us know where you're listening from on Instagram and YouTube. And on Facebook, in sha Allah, it's always interesting to see where everybody's listening in from.
What is the difference between desire, ego and next. So these are different words in different languages, right, and they will have different meanings. So the ego is something that requires combat, it is where the souls
overcome with a passion that may not be wholesome for him and the ego in our own discussions within ourself and it's how we kind of coach ourself in life. Now, there is the spiritual concept of the ego and then there is a psychological concept of the ego and we should not conflate the two Inshallah, the next is another word for a rule. So the next refers to the soul when it remains in the body. The rule is the soul as it enters or exits the body in sha Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada says Allah
and Allah causes the slumber of the neffs when it departs of the body in the time of our sleep, we it is still attached with us, we still have life, but when I would rule heads towards the F era, then it is no longer capable of making choices and having ability and influence in this life. Next or what is referred to or desire in all of the is referred to as an ISA, which is an animalistic desire, it is something that is
doing as well.
All right, we have Insha Allah
we have we're going to return back to our studio questions chochmah In the coming moment
mashallah, we have one of our brothers and sisters saying that they will join me in the blessings coming up Allah of avocado, I look forward to meeting you and your family. Allah whom I mean the is Tyler. Always join us in the best of places and times. I mean, we're back to this
salam ala April, what have you. And hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Salam o Allah I'm writing we're sending more than we've had some very wonderful questions thus far, man unless you're kind of wanting to make it a benefit for all of us a lot Miami, certainly myself. I've benefited from some of the answers that I think I've provided were very important for
Need to kind of hear especially about forgiveness and looking for the hope that we have with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tirana. I just wanted to end with this hadith of the prophet that I send them before we take our next caller who's on the line, the prophets I send them said, Could you look at them? Well, he wrote in all of the progeny of Adam, all of the sons and daughters, the children of Adam, all humanity, are prone to sin. And the best of the sinners are those who ask Allah for forgiveness. May Allah Matthew and I have them nowhere in the Quran does Allah say, Yeah, Yeah, hello how soon Oh, you sinners repent to Allah. Rather, he says, Yeah, you ended up Nina Avenue. You know, that very
question of asking about how to better yourself about wanting to have greater hope is a sign that Eman resides in your heart. Get up do something for yourself and for your community and feel the power of Allah in your life. Abby? We have a caller on the line. I said I'm on a cold caller How can I help
yes my brother
Okay, is that fair?
No, no, go ahead. Ask your second question as well in sha Allah.
Okay. I understand your question just like Allah, Allah.
Allah Who better? Okay, so let's begin with the second question. First. Anything that is written by the works of men will have things that are good and things that are bad, and they will be qualified by their deeds before Allah Subhanallah with that either, for us, for you and I as discernible adults as people who have mind, it's important for us to reflect upon consuming and reading and listening and absorbing things that we believe will mature us and mature our soul in a better way as we move forward in life. So there will be certain things that you may even question some of the odermatt You know, some of the scholars say you should not read this book. And in a certain period
of time, they will say that another period of time other odermatt will come and say, well, listen, you know, there's actually I'm talking about books written by Muslim scholars, they will say, Listen, there's benefits in these sections, but maybe not in this, or this is where this needs to be corrected. So we are a very literate people in that sense, know that knowledge is something that is important for us. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to allow our hearts to be attracted to that which is pleasing to Him. And that leads us to a strengthening of our faith. Always be very careful what your eyes consume, what you listen to, and what you give access to your cartoon and show up with regards
to your first question. It's an important question. I actually have a piece that's written that addresses this in detail, but I think it's an important discussion to have over the next two or three minutes, I will summarize it the issue of Allah subhanaw taala, saying to the prophets, or I send them revealing sort of Avocet with the one that is a very important statement. The prophets of Allah who were seldom frowned at a particular moment, where a blind man had entered into a moment that caused tension amongst the people of Quran. So just to narrate this there was a man by the name of Abdullah Al Maktoum or the Allah who won the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived in a time
where people who had disadvantages or who were seen as being different were targeted, isolated, and abused. And one of the things that caused the person to receive that was not being able to see. So I have the luxury to mimic who was blind in that time. 1400 years ago, was on the fringe of society. When he heard that there was a man who was preaching about God, and about equality, and about equity and about justice. He wanted to meet the hundreds I said, but whenever he asked somebody because he's blind, show me where Mohammed lives show me where he is that people have courage would lead him away, they would point him in the wrong direction.
So the only way that he could find the prophets I said live, he began to walk the streets of Mecca, raising his voice without saying, Yeah, Mohammed, Mohammed, me and Rob. Oh, Mohammed, oh Mohammed, tell me about God. Tell me about your Lord.
Now I want you to keep that in your mind. In that same moment.
Prophets I send them was meeting with some of the chiefs of courage. He asked them just give me a few minutes to gather together without people knowing, gather in a place in one time. Let me tell you about Allah. Let me tell you about faith, and then you can decide what you want to do thereafter.
Be grudgingly and finally they gathered and they said, We'll give you five minutes or 10 minutes to talk to you. And just as the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam is about to begin his discussion coming around the corner. In this odd time of day when all the cheats are there, he doesn't see them. He doesn't know where the profit is. Abdullah limit the Allahu Anhu he says yam will
tell me about God. The people of Karachi led by Abuja, the man of ignorance, I will have a sham that Anna hula stood up and he said caatsa Interbay Nana whether in our video that you want us to be equal to the destitute to the beggars of our society, Wallah he led us man. We will never listen to anything you say. And began to leave so the prophets I send them proud. The frown was not at Abdullah hit limit to for the Allahu Anhu the frown was at those who gave up the opportunity of listening to pay and did not take it. In the prophets, I send them his heart. He was saying that they did not and we're not able to hear the message. The prophets frown did not hurt Abdullahi Umar
Radi Allahu Anhu could not see it. And that's why it's quite beautiful that the prophets I send them did not make an experiment and say, Just be quiet. I'll come to you in a minute. He just simply frowned at this last moment that he thought that they would come to faith and in it, Allah cautions a prototype some women use Rika Allah Who just said, Yeah, Mohamed, what makes you think that this one man is not more valuable than all those others who turned away from you? Yes, zecca even the way it's not yet as even the way the word is stated, is that he is so ready to become pure in faith. Don't worry about the others. This is the one you should focus on from that day. The prophets I send
up with nominate, I believe me to leave the prayers in his absence in Medina when him and I will work on some of the others who have over estimate of the lightning that would be deputized in the way of the prophets. I said he was honored by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, although the norm in society at that time, was to make them dishonorable, but Allah elevated him. He was a more advent of our Vidya Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam. It was like a marker for that question. Hopefully it's beneficial. If you Google my name, yeah, Brahim and others, you will find my you will find my written article that is found in Muslim matters in sha Allah finally to end on that and I know we
have callers on the line. The prophets of Allah are my assume they are protected from sin and their protection from sin is that they do not do anything immoral, anything questionable. Where they do make what can be referred to as something corrected by a mod is that they seek something good before they have been asked to do it. Just like Musa arrives I think you sent them to the mountain of booty say that and let these people hurrying to try to please Allah and Allah says do what Jenna can call me or Moses Why did you hurry and leave behind your people?
To kind of who want to either
We have another caller on the line Estella Monica and caller How can I help?
I said I'm already cold caller How can I help
how can I help you
one side into the
thinking in my head, sometimes I don't
when I say that
because I think I
afternoon I leave the office while I was using one of them on the cross was
an idea that nobody knows
in our lives because
so many more
in fact, in fact, sister that is the Sunnah. So I want you to consider that there is a chapter of the Quran called the opening Surah to the prophets I send them saw a dream in the final years of his life, that he was making falafel around the Kaaba, and that he was in Haram. And he saw that they, you know, shaved their heads and, and the prophets I send him was so inspired, he said to the Sahaba, we're going to camera, Everybody get ready and 1300 men, they made their way to umbra. Now Subhan Allah, they were prevented in the area of a coup de ubia. On the way to enter Mecca, and the prophets, I seldom actually signed the peace treaty even today via and there is a lot of with one
where they sit under the tree and they place themselves in their life for Allah and the messenger. So I tell them, there's so much blessing the king from that moment, we'll study it together in sha Allah. But in that moment, what we found was that the prophets, I said limbs, hopes of the Umrah and the DUA that he was making the want of it, what he, what he carried with him what he had in his heart materialized just a little bit later with the conquest of Mecca, and then the final pilgrimage of the head. So having this great hope in a lot, having this not foolhardy, not foolhardy hope, but having this dua that we are going to carry, having this intense desire to meet
the greatness of our dua in the blessed land, to open pathways and gateways to bigger and better things is the student net, aim at ermera The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? He said
that of the things that increase risk
and blessing is a little more that I remember after Umrah is to do home run for Nomura, and hijack your hygiene increases in your prosperity in your happiness in your contentment. So may Allah carry you with that spirit? May we all rejoin in the spirit of wanting to have our to insert where we are now. And also in the blessed event? Allahumma Amin Allahumma Amin, we have another caller on the line as Santa Monica, we call her How can I help?
I said I'm on ECAM. Call her How can you Yes, my brother
I bought the credit card. So with credit cards for some people, they are an essential, it's important for us to have a credit file and be able to show that we are worthy of being given loans, it will help us in establishing our businesses and being self employed. And sometimes it's essential for travel or renting cars or assurity is it's a form of ID for others, I would definitely caution anyone from using the credit card. Now someone will have not they object to anyone even signing a contract that does stipulate that there is usury or rebel. But in fact, just about any contract that we're going to sign in Muslim or non Muslim land, he's going to have something objectionable in
that. So I qualify that by saying, if there is the need, that requires a person to carry a credit card to have one with them in their name, then it may be something that is acceptable for that particular usage and for that particular purpose. But certainly consider that the average male and I can speak of Australian statistics, the average adult in Australia has an unsecured debt, meaning it's not something they can sell to pay back of more than $12,000, which is incurring interest at a rate of 16 to 21% depending on what kind of card that they have, which in in many ways causes a person to lose many of the abilities of making choices for themselves in their family, whether
they're going to take a job or rejected for something better down the road, whether they're going to be able to move from one neighborhood to another because their rental agreement will not be accepted because they have bad credit.
reading it is very important for us to be careful with that in sha Allah if you don't need it, don't have it. May Allah make it easy for all of us Allah I mean we have another caller on the line I believe that said I'm Anakin caller
Hello Yes sister so I don't want you
has not done anything for the country
so can we pray for
coming over and
and he or she
can get and she performed on sheet books.
Does love it? All right, the two important questions there.
And the first question is about making dua for something bad to happen to someone. While you know whether it's an IRA or another can we make dua for something bad to happen to someone who we do not believe is a good person or perhaps that we experience something bad from them. So two things that are important the prophets I said of them said I was not sent as one who curses people. In fact, we know from the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah who he was sending them that there were those who had done egregious harmful things to him and some of his family and his companions, and the prophets of Allah or he will send them would make dua that Allah beat them arrived that Allah guide them that
Allah would restrain them that Allah push them away. This doesn't mean that it is not allowed to ask a law to destroy one who is an enemy to us who is in combat against us. So we do have to add in the Battle of Hiva. We do have your eye in the Battle of 100. We do have you're in a battle with us prophets I send them would mean to particular individuals, but he would itemize them for their particular things known to him follow iclm The general habit of dua, lead tech drew do not make dua against yourself or your family's except for good things. Do not mean that you are against your homes or your wealth or your community. You know the prophets I send them for bid just from that. It
is a contract that will fit your ad. It is being rebellious against the law in your app. Allah is Allah for Rahim Allah is a Rahman Rahim Allah is the One who yesterday is the one who leads and guide. Where would we be if the prophets I send them may do it against or model and not for Oma? The prophets, I send them believe it or not used to make dua for both fo J and irmo. muhabbat. It's narrated from numerous oh that the Prophet would say, Allah who met I said, Islam, oh Allah strengthen the faith of Islam, with the best of these two men that you know is better be hasn't been rejuvenated me like who is more love to you by Allah, I would have ever been a sham or homeowners
who have thought you Allah know who is better, whose heart is better, whose deeds will be better? Oh Allah, give strength to Islam with one or the other of them making dua for those who were the greatest enemies of the prophets I send them at that time. May Allah Subhana Allah to either protect us a llama I mean, the second question is about the validity of a religious action, even when we have done something wrong in other things. So that sister just got lucky if she was very specific and somebody you are Murrah if they have a credit card debt that is owing on interest. So I want to separate between the two things if somebody has paid for their raw with with savings that are
colored with wealth that hasn't been mixed, and there are other things in their life that are out of balance, it does not limit that the action that they are doing them as righteous will lead them to that which is good. And I want to share with you that one of the best ways to overcome Msh one of the best ways to overcome riba one of the best ways to overcome missing our Salah is to do something great that jumpstarts our iman is to do something good that inspire this in that which is going to bring us to caution with allies. And what I would say is sometimes it is good for us to
allow people who have degenerated or have made mistakes between them to and Allah to go to the blessing legs to stand in front of the camera to pray in the masjid in a VSI, setting them to feel ashamed before the Almighty Allah, perhaps it will lead them to that which is bigger and better in their life in the future. This is found in the statement of some of the one of the greats will have a nitrogen at the coffee or the Allahu Allah, he was a drunk, he was one who drank, and in one of the battles of a Ponzi CEO under the command of Saudi Arabia, what cause he got drunk in the middle of the Muslim camp, on the eve of the battle, and they locked him away, tie them and they said, We
don't have time to wait with you now. We're going to go in battle when we come back, we'll we'll deal with you. And he, at that moment, felt the shame of his sin, that he begged to be untied so that he can go defend the lands of the faithful from the aggression of those who have come seeking the harm from the Persians at that time. And it was the moment that caused him to change and never drugs. May Allah assist us all for that which is good. I look forward to seeing you again next week. Your brother Yeah, Brahim was so damn I didn't come Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh personally love him I was selling music with Eric Allah say Mohammed 200 Allahumma 100 shares with
