Second question. We have sister Delilah from France. Michelle, that's about a lot. She emails and she says that she wants to maximize her Vicar. And she wants to worship a lot by Vicar as much as possible. And she has is trying to develop the habit of doing liquor at all times. But she's asking that can she make Vicodin when she is in a state of non will go in a state of menses in a state of Geneva? And also can she do liquor while doing routine things like shopping or waiting for the bus and she's not really paying attention? Is it good or permissible or is it sinful? Must you pay full attention when you do? Vicar

00:00:46--> 00:00:46

one?

00:00:48--> 00:00:50

out Oh, send me

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

in.

00:00:53--> 00:00:57

No, he him first.

00:01:09--> 00:01:53

response to this is that martial arts article? That's a good question and it's a question that shows the eagerness of our sister that she wants to continuously do decode and realize that the Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, that Yeah, you will live in a man with a guru law the Quran Kathy law, are you who believe remember Allah subhana wa tada frequently with Kuru law the Quran kathira remember Allah subhana wa tada frequently was a beautiful book written while Sita and praise Him morning and evening and Allah subhana wa tada also says in the Quran, was that Kadena la ha Kathy Iran was that karate and those who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala frequently and those few men and

00:01:53--> 00:02:30

women who remember Allah subhana wa tada frequently so Allah commands us in the Quran to remember a lot frequently and we should try our best to remember Allah azza wa jal as much as possible. And, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when a man came to him and said, What do you advise me to do? The Prophet says, and I've said, that constantly move your tongue in the remembrance of Allah. In another Hadith, an elderly man came and said, O Messenger of Allah, I am too weak to pray and fast like the rest of your young Sahaba. So tell me something that I can do that I can get to their level. And so the prophecies and held on to his tongue, and he said it could

00:02:30--> 00:03:13

be decree law, I command you to constantly do Vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala, and are the Hadith Cozzi famously remarks as well, that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, are in the one kneib db, that I am, as my servant thinks of me. And if my servant thinks of me in a gathering, then I will think of him in a gathering. And if my servant thinks of me, in himself, then I will think of him in myself and the head it goes on. So the point being, the more that you do Vicar of Allah azza wa jal, the more closer you will be to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, your question was twofold. Number one can I do they can in any state, the response is, yes, by unanimous consensus and hamdulillah there is no

00:03:13--> 00:03:57

controversy whatsoever. All of the scholars have said you may do Vicar of Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah stuff for the La La ilaha illa Allah which is not the Quranic recitation, you may do Vicar of Allah and do our to Allah in the state of Voodoo. And if you have broken your will do and if you are in the state of job, and if you are in the state of menses It does not matter, Vicar of a law can be done and should be done in every single state. And Allah mentions in the Quran, Allah Dena Yaga Corona la haka Yama and Walker rudan viologen. Obey Him they do Vicar of Allah, standing, sitting and lying down, and the indication is in every state you will do Vicar of Allah subhanho wa

00:03:57--> 00:04:31

Taala and I'll show the Allahu anhu remarked canon, maybe you saw the law while he was setting them yet guru LA, Allah kuliah here and he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would do Vicar of Allah subhana wa tada in each and every instance in every state that he was in, he would do Vicar of a lot gela gelato, so you don't have to be in any particular state or face any direction or do any preconditions. Vicar can be done and should be done in each and every state. Now, there is only one scenario

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

in which it is discouraged to do Vicar, and that will be out loud when you're in the restroom. Okay, that in this point in time that it would not be appropriate because it is not the place of doing Vicar with the tongue. But even then, it is permissible to remember a lot consciously in your head and not physically with your tongue. It came around the crema, the famous student of the Sahaba he said or he would not

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

Do thicker have a lot with his tongue? But he said that when I'm in the restaurant I will do the could with my job. Well I can be called he said. So the famous starbury, he remarked that when you're in the restaurant, don't do thicker with your tongue. But with your caliber thought comes in you praise Allah for that thought. If you think of a blessing, whatever you may think in your mind of something, and that's fine, but not of the tongue at that point in time. Now you the second part of your question is that must I be in a state of consciousness like, Whoa, sure, because the Quran as we know, should be recited in the state of worship. And we should be paying attention as much as

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

possible. And I have a longer q&a about that you can listen to that. Listen to that. As for Victor, as for Victor, you do not need to be in a state of who short it can be a habit and you shall be rewarded for the habit. However, the degree of reward and the efficiency and the quality of the reward will be dependent about the quality of your intention. So you shall get rewarded. If you are accustomed to doing wicked in any state, you know, you're in the shopping center, and you're just used to saying, Subhana, Allah hamdulillah. And if you just say that you will get decreed for that, and reward for that habit. And Allah will bless you and Baraka will come down. But there is no

00:06:17--> 00:06:59

question that if you said Subhan Allah and it came from the heart and you meant it, and you wanted to exalt Allah subhana wa Tada, there is no question that that takes you to a whole different level of reward and accrue. Sure. And that's not the same as somebody who's simply habitually saying so I've had a lot with him de la, la La, La La La Akbar, and the one who says it habitually is far far better than the one who never says it at all. So make it a habit, because that is the stepping stone that is the stepping stone to make it a habit with Whoa, sure, because it's levels right and you're not going to get to the highest level immediately. So the first level is you, you train yourself to

00:06:59--> 00:07:41

constantly do Vicar of Allah subhana wa tada you train yourself to remember Allah wherever you are, and to praise Allah and the best praises that you can do are for Subhana Allah when hamdu Lillah wa la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, these are the four that you should ingratiate in your life make it a part and parcel every step you take, you know every breath if possible, right every free time that you have just saved these account, if you want to add something, say the whole lower quarter in labella and also started asking the stock for the law. And you know, Robin attina for dunia has an hour after has broken up or not just make two hours. So your whole day and your whole evening. When

00:07:41--> 00:08:05

you're awake. It is constantly full of vigor. And this is one of the most powerful mechanisms to be saved from the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith and was named by Muhammad, nothing saves people more from jahannam than the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that's a beautiful question, and I hope that inshallah tada that has been answered.
