Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah he will be here on wala our question for today. First question a sister a mother says, I have a child who is on the extreme side of the autistic spectrum severely autistic. What should I do Islamically in terms of obligations on her as a female child, I love her immensely. I want to go to Jana, so I want to do my best to make sure that she gets there. So this is the question we're going to start off with autistic child or let's just make it broader. Any child with special needs any child that is a special needs child intellectually, and even physically this will be covered here. First and foremost. Dear mother and

00:00:43--> 00:01:31

dear parents, that Allah subhana wa Tada has chosen to gift a special needs child to because it is a gift from Allah azza wa jal realize that with this gift, there is also a different type of struggle and a different type of test. And like all of us have specific trials and tests and gifts and blessings. So to a child with special needs. It is a gift and a special type of test. And Allah subhanaw taala gives special tests to special people. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is a famous Hadith all of you should know it, in Allah to Allah either a Hepburn, Coleman EBITA, Allah. When Allah loves a group of people, he will give them special tests, the Bella the IP Tila

00:01:31--> 00:02:18

will come for special categories of people. And there is no question that a child that requires more love and more tenderness and more concern and more care for a much longer period than other children. There is no question that this is a special blessing struggle that you have that other people can only imagine can only think about. And our Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said hadith is in Tirmidhi in other melges e ma alpha male by law, that the greatness of the reward comes with the greatness of the struggle. The more was the love, the struggle, the tenderness, the more effort you have to put, the more will be your urgent with Allah subhanho wa taala. So I remind you, dear

00:02:18--> 00:02:57

sister, and also dear father and mother, all of you and anybody who has any issue in life that they're struggling with, I remind you that Allah says in NAMA, you are for Cibona oh god whom believed it is that every saw that a person Allah will give them back their budget without even counting. So this is going to be the test of your motherly and fatherly love, that you will continue to give most other children after a while, then they become semi independent, then they become dependent, and then they become fully independent, and then we become dependent on them. This is the cycle of life that is the default. But perhaps in some special needs cases, the child will never

00:02:57--> 00:03:39

become fully independent, and the parents will continue to give and give and give. So realize that as you give Allah will give back to you realize that your ADGER is dependent upon your own subber and your own Eman and indeed, Allah azza wa jal has only put you in this situation, because Allah knows you can overcome it, and that Allah has chosen to raise your ranks high in Jannah, for your efforts, and so put in that effort expecting the reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. If our prophets also reminded us that even a thorn prick will forgive the sins, even the slightest nuisance will forgive sins. What do you think about having to wake up every single day extra effort for the

00:03:39--> 00:04:22

child having to feed having to do this and that what do you think if a thorn prick is going to bring our Bella and our Jessa and Jana, what do you think of love that is shown to another human being to a son or a daughter that has special needs? So realize that Allah azza wa jal has indeed chosen you for something that is a test and a trial at some level, but it is a test in a trial that is meant to increase your Baraka in the Hadith and was study about Muhammad that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whenever Allah tests his servant with something, and he is content or Alia, then Allah subhana wa Tada will give him baraka and increase what he has. And if he is not content, Allah

00:04:22--> 00:05:00

will take away from him even more and will not give him Baraka. Now, I want to say something dear parents who are tested with this issue, I swear to you, you are being tested in one way, Yet Allah has blessed you in other ways, this from the Hadith. If Allah has taken something away from anyone, then Allah will give him something else that he might not even recognize he'll be in his face, but the love that will come or the Rama that will come or the Sakina that will come or the positive that will come from another aspect of his or her life will be something that is gifted because of the difficult

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

is that they are in and that's exactly what Allah says for in democracy used to run in Mr. Grocery you straw and it is through people like you that we the rest of us who are not tested with these struggles we see the reality of love and Mother motherly love and drama. Yesterday we had a guest over those of you that were here we saw an amazing example of prophetic forgiveness still walking on this earth. We saw something that touched our hearts when the father forgives the murder of his own son for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala what a moving testimony. So Subhanallah you see these living examples? Then guess what, dear Mother dear father, you become a role model for your family

00:05:41--> 00:06:16

and friends. They will look at you and they will say subhanallah look at that person's Eman and Taqwa you might not feel you have the amount of Taqwa and you should not feel that you but others look at you and others will be inspired by your dedication for in ways you don't even know you will become a role model SubhanAllah. And their good deeds will be given to you and they will also have good deeds. In other words, when you are taken as a role model, right? When somebody does a good deed because of you, Allah will bless the first person and Allah will bless you as well that you are the one who inspired that person. So when you become a positive role model through your solver,

00:06:16--> 00:06:54

through your patience, you will become somebody who will get deeds without even recognizing and knowing it until Judgment Day. And there are reports in the Hadith that people will be rewarded. And they'll be like, where did this come from? And it will be because of the effects of their good deeds. So this is the first issue also, by the way, realize that our Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam showed great kindness to all and he showed especially kindness to children, and to those who were special needs. There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari and SFDA. Malik narrates there was a lady who was mentally challenged in the life of the prophet CISM. Obviously, every society has people like this,

00:06:54--> 00:07:31

she wasn't normal. And she walked up to the Prophet system and she said, Yeah, rasool Allah, I have something very important I need to talk with you about there is nothing important. She's not she's not going to be protecting against an army. It's in her mind. She's mentally challenged, right? And she wants to have a session privately, I want to take you away and I want to have something very important. So our profit and everybody knows she has mentally challenged everybody knows, And subhanAllah maybe me or somebody else will be okay, maybe another day, just I have no time. This is the way we are. But he is Rasulullah saw Salam, even though there cannot be anything important that

00:07:31--> 00:08:10

she has to ask or say. She said, he said to her that yeah, I'm at Allah, Oh, lady, servant of Allah. Fine. Where do you want me to talk take me to any place and we will go talk. So she took him to some corner over there. And the other side, we saw her talking with him until he resolved her issue. And then he came back. Subhanallah This is Rahmatullah Alameen. Somebody who has you for sure whatever she had, it's in her mind. It's something trivial. And I say this it will I feel guilty that I'm not able to even do a fraction of this, even though I'm saying the Hadith. May Allah forgive me, for any for shortcomings, and all of us that this was a lady, she didn't even have a genuine need. And she

00:08:10--> 00:08:43

was mentally challenged. So if anybody has an excuse to say, Who has time for you, I have to solve the problems of the Ummah, it should be our Prophet sallallahu sallam, but he said, Yeah, I'm at Allah, where do you want to have a conversation take me and she takes me anywhere. She took him to that corner street and I said that in the sukkah Cal Medina, just another alleyway. And she, whatever the issue was, and so whatever in her mind and the process and spoke with her, and then came back Subhan Allah, so the mercy and compassion and tenderness should be there. Now. Your question, dear mother was one that really touched me that Subhanallah honestly, you the email was so

00:08:43--> 00:09:18

beautiful, you did not complain, you did not say why am I tested it with this? Rather, you said I love my daughter, I want her to go to Jenna, what a motherly love is this, that Subhanallah I want to make sure that I'm doing everything that she's done, you know, the question was more detailed, but prayer and whatnot, and she's an autistic child. So obviously, you understand that, you know, it's not going to be the same thing here. So she's worried that the child is not necessarily fulfilling all of the obligations. I don't did not know the age of the child, but I'm assuming that may be 14 1516 Because she's worried that the child is not doing the regular things of Islam. So the

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

mother is saying what is my responsibility to this child? So to answer this part of the question, I say to you that in our Shetty, Allah is indeed our hammer rahimian Well, locally for long enough son Allah was and realize that by unanimous consensus of all the scholars of Islam, the one who is mentally incapable the one who is mentally challenged, the obligations are lifted from them the one who is not able to think critically at all has zero obligations. And this is unanimous consensus reported in Abu Dhabi with our Prophet so I said I'm said roofing column one Salah three people the column has been lifted from meaning no hisab no either. No, nothing will happen to them. The column

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

has been lifted.

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

From them, number one, the one who is asleep, whatever he doesn't asleep, he's not sinful if he falls down and accidentally, you know, whatever it is not. Number two, the soleus the child, accidentally the child might flip a button, something happens, that child is forgiven. And number three, damaged noon the one who doesn't have Apple until he gets his apple back. So there is no responsibility on the machine in Arabic is no tech leaf is the term tech leaf is legal burdening or legal responsibility. And in the famous incident of the one who committed Zina and confessed to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, so the Prophet system wants to get rid of him because he didn't want to

00:10:36--> 00:11:18

punish him wants to forgive him wants to be good. So he asked him a series of questions. And one of the questions he asked him, he asked somebody else is this man known to be much known? Meaning if he was known to be much noon, then I have nothing to do if he drank if he did something that's not my business, let him go away. So he asked Is he known to be crazy as mentally incapable, which means that the kalam has been lifted from him if he was mentally incapable. And as for the issue of the after, as well even has him says in his fizzle, even has him says, As for the Majnoon, who cannot think rationally until they pass away, then they shall be like children following the parents

00:11:18--> 00:11:56

religion, there should be like children who follow the religion of the parents. So if their parents were believers, then they will be considered believers. And they will die in a state of Eman, and they will be of the people of gender. So this is the position of heaven has admitted as a logical one as well, that is not their responsibility to be thinking of this way. Now, you're asking to what level of responsibility, and I say, nobody can answer this other than you realize, the more the child or the young man or girl is able to think the more tech leaf comes on them. And the less they're able to think rationally, the less tech leaf is on them. So it's inversely proportional, the

00:11:56--> 00:12:15

more rational they are, or sorry, but not directly proportional, the more they're able to think the more responsibility comes only you know, does your son or daughter understand the time does your son or daughter understand that how to break and make will do what breaks will do you only understand, and there are autistic

00:12:16--> 00:12:53

people that maybe they cannot communicate properly, but they're super geniuses Other than this, and they can understand everything, but they have a problem communicating. And so they can pray, and they can fast and they can do will do, but they're socially awkward. They don't, they don't, they don't know how to speak the way we are accustomed to speaking. And then there are those on the more you know, extreme side that they cannot think rationally the way they are, maybe they are 15 years younger, intellectually. So instead of being 30, there, 15 or whatever it is, nobody knows other than you. And therefore, you be the judge in this regard, and err on the side of mercy and caution,

00:12:54--> 00:13:30

err on the side of mercy and caution, and you're allowed to test them that Okay, is it time for Salah yet or not see if they understand or not. And if they're able to, if they are intellectually able to understand the time and they're able to do the Salah, then you encourage them without being harsh, because at the end of the day, their framework is different than ours, and their understanding is different than ours. So now you can only follow nefs and Illa WISA. I'm not saying let go completely, but also I'm definitely saying don't treat them with any degree of harshness or strictness. treat them the way that Allah azza wa jal would want them to be treated with witches

00:13:30--> 00:14:11

with Rama and mercy and Allah azza wa jal will reward you for all that you have done and you will get the answer for this. So this is the first issue I cannot answer it explicitly, simply because nobody knows to what level of tech leave other than you, but err on the side of caution. The second and final question, filthy one, brother emails and says, I pray for her at my workplace every single day. And obviously it is time for her and I feel uncomfortable washing my feet in the sink for obvious reasons. I know there's a controversy over Mersa or wiping over the socks Can you please explain to us and give us what your position is on the wiping over the socks? Okay, so this is the

00:14:11--> 00:14:57

simple question must Messiah over the socks not over the shoe or over the hole for the leather. So realize dear brother in Istomin all of us benefit from this brothers and sisters because the rulings apply to both men and women. There is no difference of opinion between men and women when it comes to wiping over the socks exactly the same applies to men applies to women realize that wiping over a full covering that is impermeable from water, which is leather or something of that nature. Wiping over a full covering of the foot that covers the ankles and is impermeable, is unanimously accepted by all of the scholars of Islam or I should say all the scholars of Sunni Islam so much so that it

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

became a point of theology you

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

find this in Al Qaeda to how we that Sunni Muslims believe it is permissible to wipe over the hoof which is the letter sock. Why? Because the other non Sunni group said you don't have this thing is not permissible. So the non Sunni group the famous Nasir is only one on Sunday famous group right? When I say non Sunni there's one group you should think of. It says you're not allowed to wipe over the sock and the how odd is that you cannot wipe out the socks and others that you cannot wipe over sorry, not sock, the leather sock, let's say. So it became a point of theology because so many ahaadeeth mentioned the prophecies of wiping over the leather sock which is the Hoth in Arabic so

00:15:37--> 00:16:23

all the muda hip agree and this is something you will find no controversy that if you're wearing a covering, that covers the ankle, and that is impermeable to water which is leather for example or anything impermeable to water right. And you have will go and you put your feet into the this shoe or this leather sock in the state of will do that you may then do masa one day when you're not traveling. And three days if you are traveling, this is unanimous no acted off. But who wears leather socks in our times? Nobody. So the FDA laugh comes over what issue this is why I want you to be clear here. The controversy is over socks that are permeable that's the controversy is not over

00:16:23--> 00:16:54

Massa some people don't understand say oh, there's a controversy of a masa had no, there is no controversy over masa has zero. It is by unanimous consensus allowed and even the Quran references the permissibility of Messiah in Surah tilma in verse six, the famous one and it's a bit advanced but basically what Abdullah converses while Judah calm, you can explicitly derive Messiah from the verse in the Quran, wipe over your feet is the verse in the Quran and it can also be read wash over your feet in the clear out of the Quran. So the point is, it is very, very explicit. Now.

00:16:55--> 00:17:31

As for the Hadith of the Prophet system, it is motivated over 20 Sahaba reported Messiah overhaul. And that's why there is no controversy as we said in Sunni Islam. The most famous Hadith, which you should all be aware of is the hadith of jarred Abdullah Abdullah Al Badgley that god named Abdullah went to the bathroom really it himself came back and he wiped over the sock. His students said, how can you wipe over the sock? And he said, why shouldn't I? I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, use the restroom, come back and then wipe over his sock and another version.

00:17:32--> 00:18:16

The Sahabi said I came down to take the sock off the shoe when I say sock right now think of another sock to take the hoof out from the Profit System. And he said to me leave it on for I wore them when I was in the state of voodoo and I saw him wipe over the hoof right wipe over the hoof. And there are many many narrations in this regard. Ibrahima nahi, the famous chef of Abu Hanifa Ibrahim nahi, the greatest scholar of Kufa of the students of the sahaba. He said, we would love this hadith of God diviner, Abdullah because God accepted Islam. After Surah ma Ada was revealed. Now what is the truth anything Sudha ma ADA is the surah in which Allah talks about will do. Or you will believe

00:18:16--> 00:19:08

when you stand up to pray, then wash your face and wipe your head and wash your hands and your feet. This idea isn't Surah tell which one ma either God accepted Islam after my Ada, and Jared is saying I saw with my own eyes after this verse was revealed, the prophet system did what? Wipe over the socks, the leather sock. And so a nahi saying we all loved this hadith, because we can use it to refute those who say wiping is abrogated is not abrogated, the Quran came and the process is still wiping over the stock sock. So we have all of this and that's when Mr. Manoli says there is Iijima over anyone whom we care about each ma that it is allowed to wipe over the hoof whether you're

00:19:08--> 00:19:35

traveling or you're suffering whether you're a woman or a male whether you have a reason or you don't have a reason you don't even need a reason to wipe over the hoof there is no you don't have to be sick. You don't have to be traveling only the timeframe differences otherwise there is edge ma there is no controversy. Okay, now that we've talked about no controversy, so for example, no controversy will be over mashallah Tabata Cola, Texas boots.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

Okay, I have to say this in Texas. So you have the cowboy boots, the cowboy boots mashallah This is now hoof right there is the Texan Hof so if you're wearing cowboy boots, and you have although when you wore them by unanimous consensus you can wipe over now I think everybody's gonna go by

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

cowboy boots to work and now you're going to be real Texan when you go to work you can do Mr over the cowboy boots, no problem with something like that. Two conditions number one covering the ankle number two impermeable. Okay, now we get to the controversy. What is the controversy? The controversy is whether what if it's not a leather sock. As for not covering the ankle, no scholar says if you wearing a sock that goes below the ankle, you cannot do much no question it has to cover the ankle. That's clear. Now what if it is not a leather sock and the socks that we were in our times, right? All of us we wear nylon or cotton or polyester these are the socks that we wear. And

00:20:42--> 00:21:30

then we put our shoe over that now. This is where the controversy comes. And three of the metal hubs essentially do not allow wiping over impermeable socks and one of them allows it so the Hanafi madhhab we have a husky in his a doodle motor. He says that it is only allowed to wipe over a covering of the of the leg if they are very thick. He doesn't say leather. That's another common misconception. Some people say honey if you say it has to be leather, no 100 reasons it has to be leather. The Hanafi say it must be thick, such that you can walk one fossa which is like more than five kilometres, right? Three, four or five miles you can walk so many miles and you want first off

00:21:30--> 00:22:12

you can walk with and the and the sock will remain and it will not be Yeah. And so basically it's an independent shoe almost. Okay, it's an independent shoe. That's what they're saying. And Khaleel in his motorcycle he says that it is allowed for the male or the female in travel and non travel that they may wipe over the socks if they are made out of leather. So a leather sock meaning impermeable. And the same goes for the Shaffir easy mama no, we also have a quote here and others. So the three madhhab say that it must be an impermeable sock. The one month that is left is which one, the humbly method and the humbly melt him out of the format hubs. It was very clear that both the leather and

00:22:12--> 00:22:58

the non leather sock is allowed to do massage over. And this is something that they defended. And even Kodama in his famous book or movie, he basically mentioned that anything that covers the ankle, anything that covers the ankle, you can walk a little bit, not five kilometres or so you can just walk any, it's something that is an independent foot covering, which is basically a new sock of our times, it takes the ruling of the hoof and you can do massage over it. And even Taymiyah defended this position and he goes anything that covers the feet, even if it is very thin, as long as you call it a sock Joe Rob, then it is something that is permissible. And if it has him as well famous

00:22:58--> 00:23:40

scholar of the past he also said this, and many of the modern scholars as well say this as well the Methodists and Islami of the robata they have a fatwa on this that it is completely permissible to do Messiah over cotton and polyester and wool and it is not a condition that they be made out of leather. Even if the Shaffir isn't magic isn't Hanafy said this they said that is not a condition and then what is their evidence all of them even Tamia admin has him to humbly met him and many modern scholars, what is their evidence? The evidence is the authentic hadith and Agudo tell me the and most of the Imam Ahmed al more here I've been sure about said that I saw the Prophet sallallahu

00:23:40--> 00:24:27

Sallam he used to do Mercer Island, Joe Rabine when I lean over his Joe Rob and his shoe, now in Arabic HOath is a sock that is made out of leather. And Jo rub is a sock that is made out of cloth. And in this hadith, the word Joe would have is mentioned. So he wiped over the job. It's explicit in the Hadith, and it is an authentic hadith. Now the other three, they either said that, well, he meant a half. Or they said, Well, this is a job that is impermeable and made out of this and that and they kind of put all of these conditions on it. Nonetheless, even Taymiyah has a very long section in his fatawa in which he says

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

the goal is because of which Allah revealed the wiping over the sock was to make easy will do and for us to bring so many conditions that are not found in the Quran and Sunnah. It defeats the purpose of Allah gifting us Messiah Halal Fein. The point is that you make life easy. And Allah subhanaw taala did not so because when you look at the Hadith, the prophet system did not give any conditions at all. These are later methods and we respect them, you know my position I was

00:25:00--> 00:25:21

Back to all the methods. But when there's a diversity of opinion, if you wish to follow a particular method, no problem for me, and that's why I'm giving you all the methods. That's why I'm presenting the platter to you. If you want to be a Hanafy, and you want to follow it hamdulillah that's no problem. But if you ask me, What is my humble opinion, humble, humble opinion, what is my humble, humble opinion?

00:25:23--> 00:26:04

Not just because I am humbly overall, because, you know, I told him overall humbly, but it is also my position that it is permissible for a person to follow another authority and say this position is the correct one. It's not to be you're not photoshopping you asked me a position, I will give you my opinion, it is my opinion based on the evidences that number one, it is authentically narrated in multiple ahaadeeth, that the processing wiped over the job and the job is the word that means a sock made out of cloth. Number two, the profit system did not put any condition. It is true that most of the Arabs at that time wore leather socks, but that was the custom. That was the default. So he

00:26:04--> 00:26:43

Salallahu Salam usually wiped over the leather socks. Therefore that is the default because that's what they had at that time. Even cloth was a scarcity. By the way, why would you put it on your shoe when you need something to cover your shoe in that environment? What not so cloth socks were not the default leather socks were. But in that environment, our profit system, if it was only allowed for one type, he should have said Messiah has only allowed for hope and not for JIRA, but he didn't, the Shediac came and allowed it our professors have demonstrated it as allowed. So anyone who puts a condition, they need to be telling us where these conditions come from and with with utmost respect

00:26:43--> 00:27:20

to the other three methods, the humble is have a point here, and they've been Tamia says this, the goal is to make it easy not to make it difficult. So this whole notion of you have to walk 1000 yards, you have to make sure there's no hole the size of this and that if no claim says can you imagine any Sahabi did not have a hole in his sock. Can you imagine? And this is can you imagine that everybody has holes in their socks, the Sahaba were dirt poor, you don't think they had a hole in theirs in their soul to have a condition that the hole cannot be more than 2.7 centimeters, these things with utmost respect, but you're making the religion these conditions are coming and it goes

00:27:20--> 00:28:04

against the purpose of Allah revealing concession to us. So both immaterial claim, they are somewhat defensive of the humbly position and I find myself agreeing with this that yes, you may do Massa over any SOC as long as it is called the SOC. The Sunnah proves this explicitly, and the goals of the Shediac prove it implicitly. Is that clear? explained this. The Sunnah proves it explicit Masada, Joe Rabin, and the hadith is in Abu Dhabi and was sent in by Muhammad by Mohammed shorba. And the goals of the Sharia approve it implicitly that it is allowed. Now, having said that, the final point here, what is to be done, if you are wearing a sock that covers the ankle, because as we

00:28:04--> 00:28:47

said, if the sock does not cover the ankle, there is no discussion, end of story, you have to take it off and do do also know how to do washing of the feet. Now, what if it covers the ankle, and you put your shoe on top of the covered sock, but the shoe does not cover the ankle. So we have a number of scenarios. first scenario, your shoe covers your ankle, in which case clearly you can do massage over the shoe, you're wearing a boot you're wearing anything that is a big covering, right? Are these hiking boots that go all the way up clearly that you can do massage over that there's no question there's no afterlife amongst the homies. And the other three would say only if the shoe is

00:28:47--> 00:29:23

impermeable, we will give that distinction right. And by the way, most of the shoes here especially the hiking shoes were not. They are impermeable, they don't want water to seep in. So according to those better, but will be allowed. It doesn't have to be leather The point is water should not go into the treatment hubs. The humbler is that even if water goes in doesn't matter. That's the point you're allowed to do my so clearly the first scenario if the shoe goes above the ankle, all and it is impermeable, all three methods allow understand. Now the controversy will come if the shoe goes beneath the ankle, and the sock is above the ankle, which is our culture and custom in the Western

00:29:23--> 00:29:51

world, most of our fancy shoes are beneath the ankle and the sock is above the ankle. And the measure this 50 of Europe and others they have spoken about this in detail. And I always like to quote counsels because then nobody can say it's my personal opinion. Sometimes I will give you my personal but I tried to avoid that quote you respected scholars and whatnot so that I get out of the picture. And their position is that

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

it's an interesting well listen to this in those days. In those days, most of the

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

Is cloth socks were essentially wrap arounds. In other words, they're not like hours that you pull them up, it would be a strip and you would wrap your feet.

00:30:13--> 00:30:53

Right the type of band aid, they will do like that. So it's not a one piece that you pull on. It is multi layered. Right. And so and the concept that we have of a thin sock to protect you from a you know, shoe, that type of stuff wasn't in back then this is something now. So the the merge Mark said that in this case, really if you look at it, as long as you had will do because you I mentioned this you should all understand if you don't have other than doesn't come you have to have will do in the morning. Meaning when you when you put your shoes and socks on not in the morning, but whenever you put your shoes and socks on, you need to have little okay. Now this measurement I said, if you look

00:30:53--> 00:31:36

at it, this is essentially a multi layered one entity just like imagine if you had a bandaid sock, and then you took one layer above the ankle, then you went back down into three, four layers on the foot itself. So the foot is thicker, bandaid wise and above the ankle is one layer it's considered one item. The point is it is covering the hook home is the same. So they said that given this modern circumstance, you're not going to find a classical position because this is something new no our style that we have, they said this class is there that this is one foot piece. So as long as you wore your sock and your shoe in the state of Ohio in one, we'll do right you understand this point,

00:31:36--> 00:31:50

you wore your sock and then you wore your shoes and you had will do then you may do Mercer over the shoe because you essentially wore it as one piece and it can be counted as one piece. Now, if you

00:31:51--> 00:32:35

take your shoes off according to this position, then you will have an issue and if you don't have will do when you place the shoe on so then you will have to take your shoe off and then do it with the sock and this is one opinion even in this issue. Bottom line. Allah knows best but Allah gave this concession is very clear to make life easy. Allah says wa Jalla la confit Dinniman heritage there is no difficulty in this religion. Allah says you do lobby como juicer, Allah wants to make things easy. Our Prophet sallallahu wasallam said in Allahu Taala your Hebrew Rasul Allah loves that the easy things he has given you, you should take advantage of them, don't reject them. And that's

00:32:35--> 00:33:19

why in the context of praying for verses to when you're traveling, you're not supposed to pray for because Allah gifted you you can pray to and Allah wants you to accept his gift. When you're allowed to pray to her when when when you are actually Mustafa you're supposed to pray to as we all know, it is against the sunnah to pray for. And in this context our prophets have said Allah loves that when he's given you a Rojas and easy thing you take advantage of it. So this is even Tamia is fatwa that the whole concept of Messiah is a Rosa from Allah. So why make it difficult, make it easy, as long as you have will do and your footwear covers the ankle. Then in sha Allah Allah you may do Massa

00:33:19--> 00:33:57

over that entire piece, and therefore you do not even have to take your shoe off have the new year that you're going to do will do in the morning where your socks and your shoes and then for the rest of the day at work you can do masa even over the shoe. And if you don't remember whether you had will do for the shoe or not maybe you wore your socks because it's cold these days. Then you put your shoe on later on if you forgot that, just to be on the safe side, you may take your shoe your feet out of the the the actual footwear, the shoe and do masa over the socks. But in my humble opinion, the humbly might have been hazards of poverty, many aroma of our times and more and more of

00:33:57--> 00:34:32

them of our times even many of the most heavy aroma in our times they are rethinking through they're looking at all of these exquisite evidences many of the shafr scholars of our times, by the way, allow Messiah over the job. I was listening to some YouTube video some of the earlier scholars now even though they're Shafi, and technically they might have does not allow it but one of their great scholars was saying look, the hadith is very clear. The Molina shorba Hadith that the process and wiped over the sock, and he said this hadith is very clear. And he's giving the fact one of the main chefs of SR and he Shafi he's saying the hadith is very clear. So Allah knows best it seems to be no

00:34:32--> 00:34:51

problem whatsoever to do Massa over any footwear whatsoever that constitutes the footwear. And this is of the goals of the Sharia and you may do your master 24 hours when you are not traveling and 76 hours three days and nights when you are traveling and shallow data. How can I say no to because you wake up smell good?

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

So our brother

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

was asking a good question that I didn't talk about dismissed I had done on the top or on the bottom. I live near a body of said Hadith isn't was the Sunnah Buddha would Sunita without I live in Abu Talib said

00:35:13--> 00:35:59

if our religion were to be based upon what my logic and reason says, then I would have done Messiah on the bottom of my sock, my whole life. But I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam do Messiah on the top of the hoof. This hadith is in Abu Dhabi and eliminate with olive said, if the religion were to based upon what I think is common sense logic, rationality, then I would have thought massage should be done at the bottom, but I saw the profits of some do massage on the top and by the way, the shows that that Messiah has symbolic Messiah is symbolic because you just little bit of drops of water and you just drop on the top even though we all know when you're walking is going to be the

00:35:59--> 00:36:24

bottom that is going to be dusty and Sandy and whatnot. This is even taneous point by the way that Messiah is a symbolic gift like to mom so to add multiple conditions to to your mom defeats the purpose of the demo to add multiple conditions to massage defeats the purpose of massage. That's the point of intermediate says Zach Malachy. I will not be here for tomorrow's halacha I'm traveling. So we shall see you next Tuesday. And then next one is to insha Allah Allah Zarkon Wilkerson
