Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi answers the most often asked question on the ruling regarding the Fate of good Non Muslims.

Allah is the Hakam and we are His Makhlook. Allah does as He pleases and nobody challenges what His actions. To judge Allah from our finite wisdom is the height of arrogance. He has a Code of Law, which was legislated by Him and He says that He will not do injustice even of an atom’s weight.

Numerous verses in the Qur’an are quoted that explicitly assert the fate in the Hereafter of the non believers and those who stray from the path of Islam.

A non believer may go to Jannah only as an exception and not as a general ruling or an ethical perspective.

What is the Islamic ruling about the fate of the non Muslim or the calf who was good? Or who didn't hear about Islam? So this is a question that is always asked about, well, I have good friends, I have good neighbors, I have relatives, I have people in my workplace, they are good people. Or maybe I don't know them. But there are a lot of good people in this world, what will happen to them in the future? So before we even begin answering this question, we need to first and foremost acknowledge that Allah subhana wa tada is the hacking and the heckum and the Moloch and the molecule milk. Before we even say anything and open our mouths we acknowledge Allah is the Rob and we are the

00:01:03--> 00:01:55

mahalo. And Allah has the right to do as he pleases in his creation. So no one can ask a law and challenge Allah in what Allah does. La use Allah Maya follow home use alone, no one law use whatever Allah does, nobody can ask him, he is not asked about what he does. This is what the Quran says. Now use Allah Maya file for home use alone, they will be asked about what they do. So to try to perceive Allah as wisdom and knowledge from our own paradigm is the height of arrogance, to try to judge a law from our finite judgments is the height of arrogance. In the end of the day, Allah is the hardest and the hardest, has the right to do as he pleases. Now, does this mean that Allah xojo or

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

do Bella will do something that is unjust? No, because Allah says in the Quran, while you're lamora buka.

00:02:03--> 00:02:14

Allah does have a code of law. He does a lot. He does have a code of ethics that he follows, but who obliged a lot to follow that code?

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

Who can tell me

00:02:18--> 00:02:23

Allah did himself who obliged Allah to follow that code? Allah did himself.

00:02:25--> 00:03:15

Khattab boom Allen, what are Rama cutter bada boom, Allah nuptse your Lord decreed for himself. The Hadith in Sahih Bukhari your Lord has the Kitab with him that he wrote before he created the heavens and the earth. And in that GitHub is written in the head, it goes on and on. Even Allah has a Kitab even Allah has a you can call it a shediac constitution, whatever you call it, he has a code of law, but who legislated that law, Allah did not us. There is no entity above Allah to legislate to be law. So Allah has a code. And Allah azza wa jal has said in that code in the law, Hola. You're living with Carla Dora. Allah will not show injustice, an atom's wait. So there is no injustice that

00:03:15--> 00:03:58

Allah can do but who defines injustice, injustice is defined in the Quran I recited in so in the Salah right now, that not as it was the rotten was wrong, This is injustice, to say that one person does a crime and the other person will be punished. That is injustice. And Allah has said that's not going to happen, not as it was the rotten wisdom overall. How, however, to punish someone for a crime that that person has committed, that is not injustice, and who gets to define a crime, a law xojo will define there are certain things we might not view them as being as criminal as others, but that's because of the culture and the time and the place that we are born into. So that is the first

00:03:58--> 00:04:46

point to answer this question. And that is, we are not in a position to challenge Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah follows his own laws and he has legislated those laws. The second point, when it comes to assigning mercy assigning either assigning Heaven and Hell, we have a very, very clear rule. We do not assign individuals to Heaven and Hell, we do not assign personalities to Jenna and not to Rama and other we talk about generalities, not specifics. Okay. Your friend Michael dies. No one has the right to say if Michael died is a Muslim or non Muslim. He's going to go to heaven. He's going to go to hell. No one. Your friend Mustafa dies no one can say Mustafa was a pious man he's going to

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

go to gender doesn't matter. We are quiet about individuals. Except if a law has said to Betcha Abdullah have been what tub Maulana Animoto mocha sub Silas la what naran we

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

can say Abu lahab isn't not because Allah says so. Otherwise we are quiet about individuals. We never assign any individual to any specific fate, but we speak in generalities. We speak with conditions. Those who believe and do righteous deeds will go to Jenna, this is generalities those who reject a lot will go to Johanna, this is generalities most of Michael who might have done this and now we are quiet because we do not know what is inside of them. Okay. The third point

00:05:32--> 00:05:40

it is very, very clear in the Quran and Sunnah. That there is one path that leads to Jannah.

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

In the DNA in the law, Hill is

00:05:45--> 00:06:32

the religion that is acceptable to Allah is Islam. Allah says in the Quran, Allah kulu the nasaka motto Belleville that Abraham hanifa will call you kulu then oh no sobre todo. They said, not a lot. They said be a hoody Venus Ronnie, you shall be guided Bell no Bell here is helpful a drop you in the gate what preceded it? No. I will follow the middle Eva Brahim, who worshiped Allah alone. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Koran woman yerba tells me later on Islami, dienen fellow nuchal Bella men who will who will erode the middle Holocene. This is the most explicit verse in the Quran that is imaginable. You cannot even word a verse that is more explicit. It's not even possible in Arabic

00:06:32--> 00:07:11

language. Whoever chooses any other way of life other than Islam, it shall not be accepted of him and he shall be in the hereafter amongst the losers. You cannot get more explicit than this. There are other evidences as well. The rejection of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is a rejection of Allah. For in nomological the boon Aquila can avoid him in a battle Ah, I don't whoever rejects the Prophet system is rejecting a law. This is a very explicit notion. You cannot be a believer in God while you reject His prophets. Allah says in the Quran, and again these are so many verses.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

Let me just see the diversity Allah says in the Quran.

00:07:17--> 00:07:53

In the Lydian Karuna Bella he was truly he those who do confer with Allah and His messengers. While you do when you redo a new firm Rico Dana law he was sued, and they want to distinguish between a law and his messengers while you're aluna Nope. middleby ballin, Warnock, Roby Bowden, will you redo and jacobina de de casa de la and they say will believe in some profits and will reject other prophets, and they think they want to find a middle ground between this notion. Now before I end the verse, which religions believe in some prophets and reject other prophets Hinduism,

00:07:54--> 00:07:55


00:07:57--> 00:08:01

Taoism, which religions believe in some prophets and reject other profits telling me

00:08:03--> 00:08:18

that you're holding the nosara Allah is revealing this verse about them, those who want to differentiate between Allah and His messengers, and they want to say will believe in some profits and will reject other profits. And they think, why didn't

00:08:19--> 00:08:26

daddy cassava they think they're gonna find a middle ground? Now listen to this, this is Arabic so to either m&r listen to this carefully

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

eeka homolka Runa how

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

these are the real

00:08:35--> 00:09:15

means you got so close, how could you reject then you must reject knowing that you have rejected the truth. The one you see when you speak to a Hindu, Buddhist, Tao, the confusion. They don't even believe in our gods. They don't believe in the concept of prophets. They don't believe in the concept of why they don't understand this. As for the alakija they believe in our God what Allah who never would have had the God of Abraham, the God of Ishmael, the God of Isaac, they believe in the same God. They believe in Revelation. They believe in heaven and hell. They believe in the whole paradigm that is coming from the Abrahamic traditions, so out of all of mankind, who should

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

recognize the profits more than anyone else, those who know what a profit is. So when the final profits a little less than them comes, they should recognize him and they did recognize him. Yeah, as a foreigner who come Urbana home they recognize him like they recognize their own sons, and yet they chose to reject the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, the Quran the Sunnah is very clear Hadith is as a Muslim, the prophet system said, when the Neff see big he, I swear I give a custom by the one in whose hands is my soul, my boy, he is giving a custom by Allah Who controls his own life. He mentioned himself in the custom to show how the status of our system

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

I swear by the one in whose hands is my own soul. There is not a single year who the owner serani, who hears about me and my message and then rejects it, except that he shall be from us. havanna is headed as a Muslim, the second most authentic brokenness is so the evidence is in the Quran and Sunnah are too numerous to mention. And I will don't mind sharing with you many, many years ago when I was a grad student at the OIC. There was a conference and university academic conference where

00:10:35--> 00:11:09

academics Muslim and non Muslims were presenting papers about the concept of salvation in Islam. And can we find some wiggle room for something outside of Islam, and the majority of presenters, Muslims and non Muslims were arguing that basically, in fact, all of them other than me, were arguing that yes, we can reinterpret the Koran and this and that it was only my paper that I was very nervous. I was a grad student, and I was gonna say something, nobody else. And these were all big names in the field. This was a very prestigious conference, and they were all big names of the videos there, you could actually see me sweating and nervous I'm still in my early 30s at the time, and it's still a

00:11:09--> 00:11:48

grad student. And it was a very nerve wracking experience to have all of these big names. But I presented the paper there was some minor controversy, but eventually the paper was published by Oxford. It is published by Oxford University Press, there's a whole book called Islam with the salvation of others and you will find my paper and in it I go into into all of the details and evidences from the Quran and Sunnah. And then I mentioned as well, this issue was so explicit that there has never been a controversy in the history of Islam about it. The not just the former head of Sunni Islam, all strands of Satanism, all strands of sadism, of nationalism, of Shia Islam have

00:11:48--> 00:12:30

evolved Islam, all strands of Morteza ism, all strands of all strands of Islam said, if you're not a Muslim, and you reject Islam, knowingly, there is no hope for you. This is a new fangled interpretation that is coming that has no precedent in the classical tradition whatsoever. And then I said, let's put the calendar sooner to the side, even logically, even rationally, does it make any sense for God to send a messenger and the messengers coming with the revelation and the messenger saying, I am God's final prophet unto you, and my revelation is the final revelation. And the purpose of the revelation is to tell you, you don't need to believe in the revelation.

00:12:32--> 00:13:20

Even logically, it makes no sense. When Allah sends a messenger, the messenger must be obeyed. So from the Quran, from the Sunnah, from unanimous consensus, and from logic and rationality, I proved that it makes no sense to say that there can be salvation outside of Islam. Now, having said this, I then went on and I said, all of this, we are talking about the paths that lead to a law and we say there is one path that leads to Allah, only one path. And this does not mean that if somebody says he's on the path, that he is actually on it, ie somebody says he's a Muslim, doesn't mean he's gonna go to Jenna, does it mean it automatically, nor does it mean that if somebody is not on the path,

00:13:20--> 00:14:05

that they might not be forgiven as an exceptional scenario, and because to enter gender, the path does not lead to gender if it's not Islam, but it is possible that somebody on another path might be forgiven by a law due to specific circumstances. And we all know, exceptions are not made the rule. The rule is very clear. What is the rule, whoever searches for a religion other than Islam, whoever chooses a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted of him, and he shall be from the losers in the hereafter from the hospital in the hereafter. So, it is possible that a person is not a Muslim and ends up in gender that is an exception. We never make it the rule. We never say, Oh,

00:14:05--> 00:14:45

yes, non Muslims are entering heaven No, or else you say something like this, the purpose of Islam becomes meaningless. In fact, let me be even more explicit. Both the calibers are thrown out the window, not even one Kadima, both the cameras can be destroyed. La Ilaha Illa law, there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah. Somebody says, I'm going to worship Buddha. I'm going to worship Krishna, I'm going to worship Rama and you say, Oh, that's okay. You're okay. I'm okay. You have destroyed the first Kadima. Have you not? Nothing is worthy of worship. I don't know that. That's what the Kadima says. That is exactly what the customer says. If you say to a non Muslim, sure, you

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

can morally and obviously legally, even in Islamic State he can worship other than a lot legally. Politically, you will have the freedom but morally is it allowed from an ethical perspective to worship other than a la la isla

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

In the law means what? No. So when somebody bows down to an image of Jesus, we say you are worshiping other than a law This contradicts that kalama is it not the case? If somebody comes says Oh yes, good advocate and good Hindus and good will enter agenda you have negated the first Kadima then obviously, the second kalama Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that person does he believe Mohammed Rasulullah? Yes or No, the non Muslim? No, and you say, Oh, don't worry, you're going to go the agenda. So you have negated the second kalama to my dear brothers and sisters, please use what Allah has given you. To say that other paths are acceptable is a negation

00:15:40--> 00:15:59

of Islam. It is a negation of the Quran is a negation of both calamus and it makes the whole purpose of revealing a book and sending a profit, nonsensical and illogical if everybody is going to gender why reveal a new book can cause more confusion. The purpose is the final revelation. Now.

00:16:00--> 00:16:40

We said there are exceptions. How do we know there are exceptions? Firstly, Allah says in the Quran law, you can live alone Epson Illa, Allah. And Allah says in the Quran, lahmacun, mydb, Anahata, Navara Sula, we will not punish anyone until the profit has been sent. And that's why our Profit System said that whoever hears about me and then rejects me, aha, so the one who doesn't hear about our profits or sell them, or our scholars add to this, the one who doesn't hear correctly, ie, he had a very negative image of Islam, and he didn't know what Islam was he never read the books of Islam, he never met a Muslim. So this person, what is his fate? Do we automatically say they're

00:16:40--> 00:17:16

going to go to Jenna, which is what some of our previous callers said? That is also not very logical, because if the one who doesn't know Islam automatically enters gender, and you are a Muslim, and you meet this person, why should you give him Dawa, when automatically is entering gender? Think about it like that. This also doesn't make any sense. Some of our scholars said this, but it makes no sense. The correct position is mentioned the Hadith and was sent him that our Prophet system said they will be for people on the Day of Judgment. And he mentioned them the old man who couldn't think straight when Islam came to me the the decrepit old man, number one number

00:17:16--> 00:17:53

two, the deaf person remember before there was sign language, a person born deaf meant he is not communicating, nobody can talk to him, doesn't understand anything. The you know, Helen Keller, inventing sign language changed the whole world for that group of people that allowed them to communicate otherwise, for centuries and centuries, a person born deaf, could not communicate with anything. And so there was as if they were living in a different dimension. So the one born deaf, and the one bond between two prophets and alfetta. Right, and the one of the no prophet was sent to so the process of mentioned categories, they will say to a lot on judgment day, Oh Allah, it's not

00:17:53--> 00:18:32

our fault. And each one will give an excuse. So Allah will say, What if I had sent you a prophet? And you saw the Prophet? Would you have believed in him? Of course, and judgment? They will, will they say, Yes, of course. So allow us say, I will test you, then Allah will send an angel, and the angel will have something that looks like fire. And they will recognize him to be from Allah as an angel. And the angel will say, if you truly believe in Allah jump into this. And so those who trust a lot and jump in will be saved by Allah and energen and those who don't will have rejected, the point is there will be a test on Judgement Day for those people. We can make chaos upon this and

00:18:32--> 00:18:50

say, anyone who did not hear of Islam, and lived in times in places where there was no access to Islam, that person will be tested on Judgement Day, no problem, okay. Now, the real data for the real controversy comes about

00:18:52--> 00:19:02

the categories of people who had access to Islam and Muslims to a library to the internet, they had access to Google, and they were too lazy

00:19:03--> 00:19:42

to do their own research. You see, there's two points. Number one, we as Muslims are obliged to preach and teach. Fair enough. Number two, the non Muslim is obliged to ask and learn and research the two are independent YG bots, we firmly believe a person born outside of Islam will not be at peace in their soul, something will be wrong with them, they're not going to find comfort in their religion. This is because their fitrah will not align up with their theology, the what we believe why we believe this, I have given a lecture a few weeks ago after I gave a long lecture about the issue of the fitrah I don't know if it's online or not. But this is the concept of fitrah the inside

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

internal, innate nature that Allah created us upon, we firmly believe if you worship a false god, something you feel is not right inside of you. That should cause you to think to reflect something's not right I don't believe in three Gods three Gods Come on.

00:20:00--> 00:20:44

Jesus can't be God. He's a human being. He was born. How could a born person be God he ate, he drank, he was on the crop. So the average rational human being the fifth law should clash. When it clashes, they should research they should ask they should google go to a library. So there is an obligation on them as well. suppose somebody was too lazy and didn't do that. The default is that person himself or herself has fallen short, and they will go to Jannah. And this is proven by many evidences of them had eaten so horrible hottie. Isha had a great uncle aboubaker, his great uncle, famous man by the name of Abdullah bin Sudan. It was in his house that the famous treaty took place

00:20:44--> 00:21:04

as well. The famous treaty took place hateful photo took place as well in the house of Abdullah bin geodyna. It was right in front of the garba was a massive house. And it was a very prominent house without another what used to be in that house. That issue said Yasuda law in Japan, you know how he was and he would feed the hungry and you know, basically he would in our language you think he had a good heart?

00:21:05--> 00:21:26

Will Allah accept that from him on Judgement Day? this hadith is insoluble hottie Isha rhodiola one is asking a Nabi sallallahu I sent him about someone who is a philanthropist every day his house was open to the Koran Misaki. Every day, camels are being slaughtered given to the poor, every he is the most generous of the quarters, everybody loved him.

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

Yasuda law will eventually

00:21:30--> 00:21:42

get rewarded for those deeds. law you happen to know our daughter of a subiaco because he never once said in his life, or Bill fidelium bill.

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

Now this is a very very deep, heady meaning.

00:21:48--> 00:22:30

He was not religious in his life. We're talking about pre Islam. If he wanted to see here's the point. And honestly, it doesn't. I don't understand why people are confused at this. A non Muslim who never desired God and Allah and the hereafter. Why are you worried whether he got it or not? He never wanted it. Why should he get it? Yes, agreed. The one who was a religious person in his own religion, the one who was struggling with faith, the one who was searching for the truth, he never heard of Islam, that person inshallah we hope a lot of good for. Right? But the one who rejected religious study, I don't believe in religion. A hardcore atheist, for example, we can say

00:22:30--> 00:23:04

generically, even though we don't say specifics, generically, an atheist who rejects God is there is no chance for that person. Because that is no religiosity. It's one thing you have the wrong religion, and you think you have the right one. It is a totally different ballpark, when you say there can be no God, and the signs of a law are everywhere. Big difference between the two so injured and never was religious. And he never once said about the failure of Bill Fridley. And of course, the other issue comes which is a very controversial one, which maybe one day we'll answer the fate of the prophets of the low settlement. What is the sorry, the fate of the parents of the

00:23:04--> 00:23:47

prophecies? And what is their fate? And that's a whole other controversy. Bottom line, I went into a lot of detail here. Bottom line, that this question, we understand why it's so relevant. People want to ask it, we understand why people get emotional but at the same time, from a textual and logical and rational perspective, from unanimous perspective, every single evidence of the shoddy, and our common sense tells you religions are either right or wrong. There's no middle path. yet either Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior or he isn't correct. How can both be. And that's why even other faith traditions, by and large, are finding this to be a conundrum or a paradox. Those Christians that are

00:23:47--> 00:24:21

no longer faithful to their teachings, you ask them, why should I be a Christian then? What's the purpose of being a Christian? Because this is now a politically correct statement that everybody is okay. You're okay. I'm okay. We're all okay. And that's not okay. Yes, we live in this world in peace and harmony, no question about it. Yes, we have good adapt, no question about it. Yes, we are kind and merciful, no question about it. But on Judgement Day, there is one religion that will be rewarded. And there is one religion that is correct, that you cannot both simultaneously be correct. Either it is okay to worship an idol or it is not okay. Either you bow down or a friend of Jesus

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

Christ or you don't either you worship a lot you don't, there is no middle ground. So we say in the Diener in the law Hill Islam. And this is what we preach to the people. But we also realize there will be exceptions. There might be many exceptions, but we never make the exceptions into a into a what? into a rule. We never preach the exceptions. Because when you preach the exception, you're negating the rule. You don't go and tell people Oh, guys, don't worry. Many people will be forgiven on Judgment. They go ahead and commit sins. No, you don't do that. Do you? You say the general rule the sinner is going to be punished. That's what we preach. Right?

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

That's the whole purpose. Similar thing goes over here we preach there is one way. And on the Day of Judgment, there will be exceptions that one final point again, I went into a lot of detail, but this is very,

00:25:11--> 00:25:17

this is very sensitive issues and people get very emotional, understandably, understandably,

00:25:18--> 00:25:54

the real one of the real problematic issues in our time. So we talked about the one who has never heard of Islam, but was overall religious, we hope good for that person, we hope good for that person on Judgement Day, we don't pronounce any judgment that that person never heard of Islam, talk about the tribes of Brazil, some you know, or go back 500 years that people living in this land and native Indians, they would never have heard of Islam, we hope good for them, that if they were faithful to their morality, and they tried to live good lives, and inside, everybody knows what is a good life, we are hopeful, but we don't pronounce a judgement. We talked about those who have the

00:25:54--> 00:26:20

potential to hear Islam, but they don't do so. And we say that's not good news. With that's not that optimistic, if they just locked themselves shut in their houses, if they just want to live their lives like animals, and don't think about higher cause. They are falling short. So that's a problem on them. Now, we get to a real controversy. And that is, what if somebody is intellectually curious, and they do research into Islam?

00:26:21--> 00:26:27

And for whatever reason, they sincerely conclude that Islam is not true.

00:26:28--> 00:27:03

This is a very small subcategory of people, by the way, very small, right? The one who is very interested in religion, the one who is saying, I want to know what is the purpose of life Hindu, come and tell me see, come and tell me, Tao will come and tell me Muslim, come and tell me. And then he does his research. And then he decides, I don't like any of these faith traditions, and he looks into a deep dive into Islam. And for whatever reason, Now, why has he rejected Islam, for whatever, he doesn't understand the Philippine ruling of this or whatever. And there are many reasons. There are many rulings in Islam that are not politically correct. And a person born and raised in you

00:27:03--> 00:27:21

know, 2019, America has certain notions of morality and gender and sexuality, were automatically if a religion says other than what this person is born into, that religion must be false, you get where I'm coming from there right? Now, this is a scenario. And by the way, is a very small subset.

00:27:22--> 00:27:28

Is it possible for a person who is sincere

00:27:29--> 00:27:37

and open minded to come to the conclusion that Islam is not from God? mistakenly? You understand the question?

00:27:39--> 00:27:40

You guys following me?

00:27:41--> 00:27:49

What is your verdict? Yeah, what would you say? Is it possible to be sincere, and end up rejecting Islam?

00:27:59--> 00:28:05

sincerity is not the same as intellectuality. And rationality, sincerity is not the same as common sense.

00:28:07--> 00:28:11

goes back to how pure the fifth row is, suppose the fifth row has been corrupted.

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

See, this is a very difficult question.

00:28:16--> 00:28:32

And I'll be honest with you, this has been troubling me for a long time over a decade, and I haven't come to a conclusive answer. I have done a lot of reading on this. I haven't found our classical scholars discussing it, I came across a brief statement of even taymiyah, who just referenced it that

00:28:34--> 00:28:47

if a sincere person looks into Islam, can he end up rejecting or not? He says, The scholars have differed over this issue, is it hypothetically possible or not, and then he moves on. But he does acknowledge that there is an opinion that says

00:28:48--> 00:29:05

that the sincere person might because of his or her own corruption of the fitrah You understand? sincerity is different than the withdrawal, you can be sincere. There are many sincere people now who are sincere that sexuality should be XYZ.

00:29:06--> 00:29:15

And one the Quran comes and says sexuality cannot be XYZ plus T of whatever, you get my point, and it can only be

00:29:16--> 00:29:26

then automatically their sincerity from their own perspective, oh, this cannot be from God. And they end up rejecting I'm giving a simple example that we understand.

00:29:28--> 00:29:38

This is a very problematic issue. And in the end of the day, I will say, I don't know. I don't know how they'll hamdulillah we don't have to worry about

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

acciara Allah is just and merciful. We'll leave it to Allah. Allah is just and merciful. Our job doesn't change and that is to preach and teach and to guide people, etc, etc. Okay, you know, time is going to just do one quick question, then we're done. inshallah, there's a very easy question. Two minutes. The second question, brother actually got at least four or five questions. I'm summarizing them and I won't answer them.

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

Why I want? So the today's second question is why I won't entertain such future questions later on. Brother sends me a very long email about a specific

00:30:11--> 00:30:33

divorce issue between him and his wife and it says, am I divorced or not? Okay? Or it does this count as divorce or not? And I got many questions from people here. My cousin did this, my friend did that. And they send me the scenario, and they want the verdict. I will never entertain a specific photo of divorce on this table.

00:30:34--> 00:31:17

That's not how divorce is to be decided. You send an email, my friend said this, and then you send me because you happen to be living in epic, send it to janazah. Whatever doesn't work that way. Never, ever get a specific verdict of divorce from a generic fatwa. Is that clear? I shall never entertain such questions. I don't mind talking about abstracts. Does a triple divorce counters are no problem. Okay? Does this phrase counter no problem. But you come to me say, Oh, my cousin Ahmed said this to his wife, Fatima, and you write me an email? I don't know, did he really say this or not? I cannot pass a verdict on Ahmed and Fatima until, until What?

00:31:18--> 00:31:59

Until Iman and Fatima come in front of me. And I hear directly from them. And I can ask them Oh, but did this happen? Did that happen? So please, never, ever ask any shift about a very sensitive issue of any specific nature. Unless you are asking one on one. And you are the person involved. Is that clear? I have never and this happens to me all the time. People come up to me and say, Oh, my cousin in Karachi told me to come and ask you, because they're coming to you that will lie. I am not exaggerating. My cousin in Karachi, said this to his wife. And he knows that I'm in your Masjid. And he come to ask you, I said, Go tell your cousin in Karachi, to go to his local Masjid in Karachi,

00:32:00--> 00:32:27

and ask the chef directly and don't come to somebody 5000 miles away. I need to quiz I need to interrogate if it's you, no problem, come to me. And we will have a conversation. But I cannot pass a verdict on somebody that I don't interact with about their specific marriage and divorce. And remember, never forget the hadith of that lady who came to the process and said Yasuda law, you know, my husband does not allow me to pray. Salah he beats me when I pray.

00:32:28--> 00:33:05

And he never prays. And he gave a long list of complaints. And the processor he didn't just pronounce the verdict what an evil husband you are said call them out for me. He called them and said, What is this? And the man explained the other sort of law, I come home tired from work and I need to go to sleep and I want to be with my wife, I only have that much time to do with her. Instead, she's standing praying long, soon as enough is and which one is more obligatory for me to take care of my needs or for her to pray her 200 at that time, so the president said Let no woman pray Nuffield, sola exceptive, her husband agrees for a wife the priority after the father is to

00:33:05--> 00:33:42

listen to the husband. So this was gotten rid of was she incorrect in saying that he gets angry at me? No, she was correct. But she's giving her perspective than the man gives his perspective. Then the question of pleasure comes at you Hello, sutala. I try. But we have a hereditary issue. My family is known for oversleeping there were no alarm clocks back then. It runs in our family that we try to wake up we do not wake up in the morning. So the problem is said any if you are not, then when you wake up, you have to pray fudger meaning in this case, okay. You are forgiven if you genuinely tried, basically, the woman was correct. She was not lying. But in the end of the day,

00:33:42--> 00:34:22

when you hear the other side, you hear a totally different perspective. And the man was exonerated. Bottom line. Never ever asked a sensitive to a third party. Never email. Anyone even me if you live in this community come to me directly. Don't just email I said this tomorrow. No, I don't I need to quiz you. I need to ask you. Well, did this happen that that happened? It's a back and forth. So second question, there is no question because I'm never going to entertain specific questions about especially for luck and you should never be done. Rather, we can speak in generics go ahead and ask me does a triple divorce count as one or not? No problem. We'll talk theoretically but do not say

00:34:22--> 00:34:35

oh, I said this and email it to me and then expect an answer over here and publicly even No, doesn't work that way. Come to me one on one. No problem with this inshallah we conclude today. We'll continue tomorrow's our huddle. And that will continue next week.

00:34:44--> 00:34:44

In a feed

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

Yeah, man.

00:34:54--> 00:34:55


00:34:59--> 00:34:59


00:35:00--> 00:35:00
