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

Our first question today sister Natasha, emails and says that is it allowed to do to your mom, when we are embarrassed about doing will do or when it is awkward to do will do? And if so, how is their mom done?

00:00:33--> 00:01:15

Okay, so in a situation where she's wanting a job she's in a place where she cannot do will do. Can she do? This is our question. Realize that Tim is a divine gift that Allah gave to our oma. He did not give it to any other oma before us. It is a gift that demonstrates Allah wants to make things easy for us and not to make things difficult. And Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated to your mum, in the fourth or fifth year of the hedgerow when in the return of the expedition of the Prophet system where I show was there and her necklace broke the famous expedition where her necklace broke, and she went out to search for it. And then what happened happened. This is the expedition where they

00:01:15--> 00:01:51

among verses were revealed. So when her necklace broke, and she announced to the process and she doesn't have a necklace, so the process of camped and he sent people to go find the necklace, right. This is the love that he had for Arusha. Even though it was not an expensive necklace. It has sentimental value. Turns out the necklace was underneath the camel. So when the camel stood up, they found that they couldn't find it until the camel stood up. So it had fallen down and the camel sat on it. Because they were delayed. They ran out of water because they were one stop away from Medina. And they were supposed to get to Medina within 234 hours. So they had enough water to last them

00:01:51--> 00:02:25

there. Because of the delay. They ran out of water. And they didn't have water to do will do. So Sahaba went to Albuquerque and began chastising him look at what your daughter has done because of your daughter. We're all delayed. And this is the reality of frustrated people. They take their anger out, firstly when they shouldn't and secondly on the wrong people. And believe me, I know this all the time. So they always take their anger out on the wrong person. What types of workers did gotcha it was the Profit System that said we're gonna remain here, but who's gonna criticize so they go through a worker so look at what your daughter has done because of her necklace we are stuck

00:02:25--> 00:02:37

here. And when the delay continued and they ran out of water, Allah revealed sudama ada verse six. And in it Allah says we're going to model our either suffering

00:02:38--> 00:03:24

from income inequality or damage to UNICEF and MTG Duma and Fatah. Yum, Musab Eden, play yerba thumb. So I hope you will join us on what a decommit and when this verse came down the same Sahaba who criticize Abu Bakar they went back and they apologized. And they said, This isn't the first blessing that has come because of your family or a worker, all of us have benefitted that we don't have to use water in extreme circumstances anymore. So Allah revealed to me in this timeframe, and it is in the Quran. And the meaning of time on the linguistic meaning is to intend something to want to do something. And the reason why we call term momentum is that all we need to do is intend to do

00:03:24--> 00:03:44

will do and we do the very minimal things and we have will simply wishing to do will do. And then we have auto, that's why Tom is called to moon, you just have to wish you're into hora, and you just do symbolic as we'll say, and you're in tahara. That's why Tom is called Tamil. The verse is comprehensive. It mentions the causes.

00:03:46--> 00:04:34

It mentions the cases and it mentions the procedure all of it is in the verse. Allah mentions two things in the verse that were in control mergo Allah suffering and Olympia Juma if you are sick, or you're traveling and you don't have water, this verse mentions these two cases. Some scholars have added three which is a part of this we're going to come to and the verse also mentions, whether you use the restroom, or you have touched women, this is in the Quran, which means they are mom takes the place of both will do and also this is in the Quran. This is the beauty of the verses so small, and yet so much is coming from it. When to do to your mom how to do to your mom and the causes of

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

their mom. All three are mentioned in this verse. So Allah is saying even if you come from the bathroom, or in the language of the Quran, you have touched women, Allah does not use vulgarities touching women means you have been intimate, so in your state of Genova and you don't have water, then what should you do Fatima, Musashi them to yoga, then intend to lift your tahara sorry, lift your job or state of not taharah with sorry, done

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

yeva pure sorry, from several Buju hichem ya decom. Wipe your hands and your face, wipe your face and your hands with it. So this shows us to me now. So hey Buhari mentioned that once our mighty been Yasser was on a journey, and he had to do also he woke up in a state of Geneva. He had a night's dream, and he didn't have enough water. So Amar said, I removed my garments in a faraway location, nobody was there, and I then turn naked in the sand, all over the sand my body to do the Mo.

00:05:42--> 00:05:49

And I then prayed. Then I went back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and told him what I had done.

00:05:51--> 00:06:35

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in kinda yuck FECA hacker all you needed to do was this. And then he showed him for bourbon. Maybe you sold a lot who I knew he was selling maybe cafe hill or whenever huffy, Hema, summer must have been him. I went to a cafe, the profitsystem put his hands on the sand, blue, and then he wiped his face and his hands because that's all you needed to do. This shows us a defensible hiding Muslim, this shows us to him is symbolic. Water doesn't become sorry, dust doesn't become water. You don't roll over. You don't take sand and you go like this. No, to your mom is symbolic. That's why it is called Tiger mom you intend and so it happens. And Tiger

00:06:35--> 00:07:19

mom is a gift to this oma that no mama had before. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, jewelry that little out of domestication was a hurrah, this earth has been made my Masjid. And this earth has been made a source of becoming clean. So the headache goes a human, whatever person of my alma has to pray, he will have his place to pray, and he will have the instruments to clean him with him. Now, to us, we take it for granted the previous nations and to this day the Orthodox Jews follow this. You cannot just pray anywhere you need a congregation. You cannot just use any water you need to use water that is found with a long list of conditions. You know, they're gentle, but

00:07:19--> 00:07:58

they're hostile, they need to do it in their synagogues. They cannot do it the way that we do. They cannot do it at home. When the ladies have to do wholesale after the monthly cycle. They have to go to the synagogue to do hustle, because it's a special type of water that is not just the tap water. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is saying for us our Lord has gifted us what has he gifted us with? wherever we are, we can pray. We can pray anywhere. When it's time for Salah we pull the car over and we just pray and it is allowed as long as the earth is pure. And wherever we are we can pure ourselves purify ourselves if we have watered hamdulillah If not,

00:07:59--> 00:08:38

this is a gift and a blessing to make life easy for us. It was not given to any nation before us. So how does one determine goes without saying obviously as usual all of them adapt have minor differences we can just ignore them. I just want to teach you the basics for now. And whoever's advanced student can go study within the method. What is their mom done? scholars say three circumstances in reality it is two as the Quran says the third one is number two. The first one explicit in the Quran you are traveling and you don't have water. Why did Allah say you are traveling and you don't have water because it is impossible to live at a location for a timeframe

00:08:38--> 00:09:14

without water, water you need it. You know within two three days you will die It is impossible to have life without water. However it is very common that you are traveling and you have to ration water. So the meaning of not having water is that you have to save water to drink rather than to just waste this is the meaning here that you don't have water enough for you to purify yourself and this is something the collective group will decide that look we're this many people we have this much water and from now till we get to the next stop. We don't have you know four will do this something collectively common sense and if you err on the side of caution, no big deal because you

00:09:14--> 00:09:48

need water to live. So this is something you make the decision if you're alone or the group makes the decision. If you are able to get water so for example you have had an answer three and a half hours and there is a stop in America basically everywhere you go you'll find water generally speaking unless you're in the you know Mojave Desert or something and there's four hours with then in case that you are made with a mo but generally speaking, if you can have access to water, you cannot do tm if you're going to find water on the way if it is something reasonable for you to obtain. Now, question if you're going from point A to point B and your house is in that direction,

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

and water is only in point C and that's 200 miles on the other way, you are not obliged to go opposite to your house because Allah has asked you to go home if you don't have water you at home, you have just the water in your

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

Hard to drink and for whatever reason you forgot to have water to do tomorrow or you thought you'd get to a gas station and you're driving there is no gas station. Are you required to drive an amount or quantity that is unreasonable? What is unreasonable you use your common sense what is unreasonable varies from person to person. If you're with kids in the car, maybe 45 minutes is unreasonable out of your way. If you're all alone, you have the rest of the day like okay inshallah, just go you make a decision. It's not a big deal. This is something that is inshallah you make your personal conscious decision, but you are not required to travel an unreasonable way out of your

00:10:37--> 00:11:17

journey, as long as it's out of is on your journey that obviously you're going to get there out of your journey. You're not required to do that. So if you don't have water, or you don't have enough water to use, number one, number two, Allah says in quantum model law, if you're sick, there are a few sicknesses that you cannot use water, for example, severe burns. You cannot just pour water on a severe burn. For example. Hadeeth is in Abu Dhabi. A man was in a battle and his skull cracked open, they put his wound bandaid it and then he had to do also he woke up in the state of Geneva to do also so he said, Do I have to do put water supposed to be dry to have to put water one of the people

00:11:17--> 00:11:55

around him said, Well, you're in the state of Geneva and you have to do also I don't find any excuse for you. And by the way, this is the problem of literalism and of Johanna is the problem when you don't study for conditioning and you take level one. If it says it It must be the case. filter is not copy and paste filter is extracting the laws from the from the text. So one of the Sahaba said man you have to do job also, let's say you do it so he poured water on his head. It's a festered wound, what happened. The wound, festered became putrid, and he died. Before they got back to me they buried him when the process and found out he became angry, and he said they murdered him, by

00:11:55--> 00:12:17

that fatwa, that fatwa, they murdered him. katello they killed him, I should say katella home Allah. It's a statement. May Allah curse number seven. So these are legitimate anger, your foolishness and overzealousness harmed a Muslim, but aloo cartella Humala, then he said, why didn't they ask if they didn't know?

00:12:18--> 00:12:59

Why didn't they ask if they didn't know they just give a fatwa? I think it must be the case. And then the famous Hadith, same Hadith, Allah in Nima she found IE a su al, the cure to ignorance is asking questions. Allah says in the Quran, first, Allah Vickery asked the people of knowledge, don't just become mini Google, Mufti fatwa, Wikipedia, don't do that, ask the people who have studied and they will give you the response that is, so the second reason, if there is a wound or a state that you cannot put water on it, you have you may do to on top of it, and then some reader might have added a third, which is under number two, and they have said, if the weather is so cold, and the

00:12:59--> 00:13:33

water in those days would be freezing, if you have to crack open the ice and the wind is blowing and you have to do will do, you might actually cause extreme hardship to yourself. In such circumstances, they said you may do to your mom. Now these days, if you're at home, you can turn the hot water on, and you don't have the desert when freezing wind blowing at you, I have had to do this, by the way. And it's a judgment call. Again, you know, between Makkah and Medina in February and whatnot, sometimes it is freezing cold in the desert, you know, and it's not easy to do will do if you have the him and you think it's gonna be okay, you may quickly do it. And if you think

00:13:33--> 00:14:10

especially with a child or lady that's sensitive or pregnant, so you feel this not safe for them. in that circumstance, you again, it's a judgment call if you think it's not safe. And in reality, this comes under number two, because you're causing harm to yourself, you're not going to cause harm to so. So these are the conditions where you may due to him being embarrassed is not one of the reasons for tail. So if you feel awkward to do will do in a restroom where there's other ladies there or whatnot, that is not an excuse not to do what you must do, although, of course, you can always take a cup of water and go somewhere else and you will do as well. And you should all of you should learn

00:14:10--> 00:14:48

how to do will do from a cup of water, all you need, frankly, is even less than half a cup a one day I'll show you, you can easily do will do with a small amount of quantity of water. And you can do it behind your car, whatever no problem. So that is when do you do will do in the circumstance, we'll do a demo sorry. tiamo is also done as late as possible before the Salah. So you delay the time until you have to pray. And this is common sense. You don't want to tell your mom and then two Three hours later you will pray because what if you were to find water? What if you come across you know gas station like you know you want to pray is like okay, there's three hours I'll just do tambem

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

now, you don't know what's gonna happen in those three hours before you pray. So the scholars say you delay your term until right before your time to pray and then you do to mom and then the

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

is a bit of a controversy Does your mom last to the next Salah if you don't find water, there's a controversy and you have both opinions and it's just safer. It takes less than two seconds to do to your mom. So you might as well just do it before the next Salah. So to me is symbolic and the process then showed I might have been yeah set out to do it. What did the process of do, he hit his hands on the ground once with the intention to detail more, you just hit your hands. And then he wiped his in the head. He says his face and then his hands up until the wrists. Okay, so up until the wrist not until the elbows Okay, so it's just symbolic, okay. And some scholars there other

00:15:40--> 00:16:30

versions that say he wiped his hand and then his face. So again, both positions are found. Which one goes first. But the point being the goal is not to transfer the sand to your face. That's not the goal. The sand does not become water. It's symbolic. In the hadith of Amar, he blew, why would you blow to even remove even whatever is there? It is an issue of symbolism. And what is their mom done with? So the Maliki's and the HANA fees? They said that the M bomb can be done with any material that is on the surface of the earth. Because Allah says Fatima mo saw he done a yoga and saw everything that's on the surface of the earth that doesn't have to be actual sand. They said a rock

00:16:30--> 00:17:09

a stone of even the edge of a cliff or a mountain, you can just tap it. And that is your turn anything that is connected to the earth? And is there my own teacher in earth Damien would always remark that anything that dust settles on anything that dust settles on, it's symbolic. So if anything, so you have now the issue comes does dust settle on cloth? That's a good question. I'm not gonna answer it. But suppose it was not the cloth on here. Suppose it was just this table here. And it's in the open in public, it means dust is settling on it, our teacher and I think we don't allow this to do this, that he would say that but if you want to be safe, and you wanted to get the

00:17:09--> 00:17:47

something soil, something that you know, any type of even rocks or something, that's fine, this some, some items are more strict about what you do no problem. So you, you put your hand over there. And then if you want to get rid of it, even blow it off so that there's nothing coming no problem it is symbolic, and then you just wipe your face and your hands, one or two might have so you should also do this, some Setsuna and some said is good. But the hadith of Ahmad is clear. The hadith of a monument which is in Bukhari, and Muslim, the prophet system wiped and wiped and that's it. And this is inshallah tada sufficient. So once again, tm is allowed when you don't have access to enough

00:17:47--> 00:18:26

water, or when you are too sick, or it's dangerous to use water. And all that needs to be done is intention. Tapping once, once again, some others have said once for the hands once for the face, but these are trivial issues. But tapping once and then you can wipe your hands and wipe your face and that is done and then you just pray and think about the psychology of them. If Allah had willed, He could have said just pray as you are. But we would have felt something in our hearts don't have to and have taharah so to make our conscience at ease, Allah revealed a symbolic term that takes one second

00:18:27--> 00:18:40

one and a half. That's it, just to make our hearts comfortable that you have tried to do the harder and that's why they are mom is called to intend to try something to mumble right. It literally says what's the verse in the Quran? Tm?

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

No, the other one the TM mobile habito men who don't feel hoonah

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

What is it?

00:18:50--> 00:19:05

Well I tm mumble hobbies I mean who don't intend the hubby for tambem hear me is intent. That's what I wanted to say the showerhead is that the term is used in the Quran to meet intention. So Allah revealed to us an ease to ease our conscience. This is the question about

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

law.

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

Enough feed dounia Salah
