Here we are acquainted with facts relating to the wisdom of creating the stars and the refutation of those who claim otherwise, the difference of opinions regarding study of the lunar phases and the punishment promised for those who believed in any aspect of sorcery though knowing fully well that sorcery is falsehood.
Chapter 30 deals with seeking rain through the lunar phases. Here we gather information regarding explanation of the verses in Al-Waqi ‘ah (56: 75-82), the four undesirable customs of the pre-Islamic period, the Kufr (disbelief) contained in some of them and many more such relevant topics.

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah chapter number 28. What is said regarding belief in omens
in unhemmed illa in letter one want to sign on So, when I was a bit lacking in Cerulean fusina woman CR CR Molina mania de la, la la, la la
la de la was shadow La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika was shadow, Mohammed Abu who are pseudo.
We finished in the previous two chapters, the chapters concerning magic, magical is the fact that magic has on people and the proper way to remove magic and we also discuss that magic whoever practices, the form of magic in which jinn are involved, this is shirk and kufr with Allah subhanho wa Taala and that his punishment is death. And we also discussed There are two ways of removing magic both Hadar one of the ways is holiday. And that is when you perform raffia or invocation so the Quran and Sunnah, and the homies way is when you find magic with magic, and now we move on to a similar chapter, which has to do with another superstitious act or another superstitious custom. And
that is omens. Now what are omens, omens are the Arabic words to play, you're actually the Arabic word for play, you're, it refers to a specific type of omens. And that is that the arrows would use birds, the arrows would use birds of their times to get either a good or a bad omen. So they would use specific birds and when when they would see this bird, they would make it fly over then it would make it go away. If the bird went a certain direction, they would consider that good luck. And if it went in another direction, they would consider that bad luck. Okay, so the Arabic word for you, it actually applies to a specific type of Omen, but later on the word of identity, it became inclusive
of all types of omens. So basically, whenever a person sees an act, or he sees something by which he thinks that there was some type of good luck will come to him, or some type of bad luck will come to him all of this falls under omens. And in our times, we have so many other omens seeing a black cat walking under a ladder, who gave me some more examples.
Okay, what are some types of good omens good omens
well that's a that's a talisman isn't that's more of a talisman. Okay, an omen is not really something that you wear or you put in
a shooting star Exactly. You make a wish I had a shooting star. Okay. For the clovers intelligence on an omen.
You understand the difference in congressmen and omens
are really finding one. Okay, finding a further four is also good luck and keeping one is also good luck. So there's an omen slash talisman combined. Okay, how about the 13th of the month, especially for falls on Friday. This is an omen is an omen because you think it's bad luck Friday the 13th Okay, the 13th floor. Okay, to our To this day, many, many hotels and places don't have the floor 1312 and then 14. You know,
throwing money down a wall is an element and omens isn't always a good luck woman. Yes. So, all of these types of omens right. These go against Stone Age, all types of omens. they contradict though Hades This is because of two reasons. Firstly, when you do when you when you put your trust in that Omen, then you must take your trust away from Allah subhanho wa Taala Okay, so the first reason that omens are going against the eight is because of the fact that you break your work could you cut off your co workers with Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, so when you put your your trust in that Omen, obviously a trust in Allah is going to go down even to secure totally like was when you could get
some bad luck from that Omen, then your trust or your fear of a lot, or basically, your belief in a lot must be affected because you're not believing in something else besides them. This is the first reason it goes against okay. The second reason it goes against the eighth is that your heart becomes attached to that omen. Not only Not only does your heart become less attached to a law, it also then become increases as detachment in something that has no reality. Something that you have your mind has invented Friday the 13th Okay, a four leaf clover, throwing some money down the wealth or throwing your pennies in the pond, all of this your heart then becomes attached to this. So there
are two reasons Firstly, you cut your teleco from Allah subhana wa tada you have a copy of the local from Allah and secondly, your heart becomes attached to something which is from your own imagination something that does not exist, okay. So because of these two reasons, because of these two reasons, omens go against those aids and they are a type of minor shift. And if you believe that omens are the actual cause of an accident, this is major shifts. For example, they are the items of the proper time when they would see the vertical left or right
to race or before the prophets time, when there was the birds go left or right, they would think that this is a sign of good or bad luck. This is minor shift. If a person actually believed that the birds were the cause, not the sign that the cause of good or bad luck, then this is major shift because you're giving divine attributes to the birds. But very few people go into the major chicken omens they all go into mindset again that they think that these are signs of good luck and bad luck now.
A lot of most exalted said very early they're evil omens are with a lot, but most of them know nothing. Okay, in this verse,
Allah subhanho wa Taala is describing what the people have said and said the phrases before this that can instead say that Jasmine has said so called you Lana Haji. When a good comes, when anything good happens to set out any people they will say this is for us. This is because of us. We were the ones that got this good, but if an evil befalls them, then they become superstitious or they seek omens with Moosa. In other words, they say that Moosa was bad luck. Okay, Moosa and the believers they were bad luck and the evil fell because of Muslim. Okay, you understand what what was the beautiful thing is that whenever some good happens, they say this is because of us. And whenever
some evil happens, they say is the bad luck of Moosa? Oh, by the way, this concept of good luck and bad luck also, this also the type of Omen definitely the Muslim should not tell them and wish them good luck. There's no such thing as luck. There's no such thing as Lady Luck. This is another type of Omen that we say, okay? We say May Allah make whatever your matter is easy for you. This is what we say we don't say good luck, or bad luck, okay. But the people love going out. They would consider any evil that falls that falls to them or befall them, because of Moosa and they would say that Musab brought bad luck to us, that Allah says, After they say that Mr. bruck bring bad luck. Allah
says no for us, in the mouth or in the locks, neither Omen or with a lock. What does this mean that omens are with a law? The interpretation of this verse is that whatever happens to them is because of a law, not because of the superstitions that they have, all that occurs to them. All that happens to them is it goes back to a lesson how to without allies, the cause of everything alone is the cause of all of their good or evil that befalls them. So basically this differentiation that they made, that all that all good that happened is because of us, we deserve this good or evil that happens. This has been brought about by the bad luck of Moosa and the believers, Allah refutes that
claim of theirs, and it says all of their omens are with a lot, meaning as an ambassador, were to disprove that everything that has been decreed is because of a law not because of these omens, they understand this verse, everything that had been decreed and happens to them, it is because of a law, not due to the superstitious omens that they have. Is this first clear, okay, move on. This is important to verse also. A lot of most exalted, said they, the messengers said, they are evil omens be with you, is it because you are admonished neighbors, you are transgressing people, okay. Now this is part of the message or the the way of the author Mashallah. It's a very difficult to
majority. It's a very, it's not really my news. But, you know, again, it's very precise, very precise that what he did this verse, it seems to contradict the verse right before, it seems to contradict the verse right before the first verse says that the omens are with Allah. The second verse says, You omens are with you.
Okay, but in reality, and this is the whole point of bringing these two verses together. The Ark is always trying to show you there is no contradiction. Okay? The Quran and the Sunnah. Take this general rule of, you know, principle, the Koran and the sin that never, ever contradict each other. No two verses of the Koran, no, too heavy, no one is ever contradict each other. Okay, there's always a way out, there must always be a way the only contradiction that exists is your understanding. This is because it looks in paragraph it says there are no contradictions in the law. So how do we understand this? The first verse says your own is always Allah. The second verse says
you have your own means your own or your own product. Okay, how do we understand both verses we understood the first verse, the second verse means that
your own there are two interpretations here okay. Firstly, you can say that the omens are figment of your own imagination, you are just imagining these omens, you are the ones that say this is good luck and bad luck. so far. So good luck on your own is with you, meaning there are your products, you're the product of your imagination, they don't really exist. Okay, so this is the first interpretation. And the second interpretation of this could be that the evil that befalls you is because of your own actions.
What you were evil that you have done, you will be recompense in this world with evil unless and how it will punish you because of your actions. So don't get superstitious and other people it is because of your own evil deeds, that you are being punished and this whatever, whatever, we'll see, but when affliction befalls you, it is because of your own evil deeds. So you understand the two intuitions. This is
risk was the first one heart.
It's your own thing. It doesn't really exist the second interpretation
because of your evil deeds, so you're getting superstitious at the pious people and this was by the way refers to the messengers that were sent into in Surah. Yaseen. Okay, so, the people said that they were reading they were getting they were getting omens because of the pious people. In other words, the prophets were bringing by bad luck. So Allah says, that the Prophet said to them, that your omens are with you. In other words, the evil that is defaulting you is because of your own deeds, not because of us. Okay? So either way, there is no contradiction with the first verse, you understand that? There is no contradiction. The first verse says that everything that occurs because
of Allah don't have these omens. The second verse says, either these omens are a figment of your imagination, or whatever evil befalls us because of your own deeds, not because of this good luck and bad luck that you have invented. It's because of the evil that you have done. And this principle is proved in other verses in the Quran non
narrated a Buddha will be alongside learn who that allows messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam said there is no arduous contagion of disease, nor has any bad omen from birds. Nor is there any
The Omen of the nightbird ie the owl nor is there any suffer any bad omen in the month of suffering and in Muslim so here the following words are added and no no constellations and no local rules. Ghost
Okay in this, in this hadith the prophet SAW Selim is mentioning a number of omens okay. Firstly, he says that I do have no contagious diseases. Now, we have to understand the Teddy's in life of others, they are contagious diseases obviously, right. But what the Prophet salallahu is negating in this heavy is the superstitious person or the superstitious beliefs that the people had, that diseases were contagious in and of themselves, for hate diseases had the power basically to affect other people. Whereas in other studies, we find out that or the interpretation of this hadith is that diseases are only contagious by the will of Allah. Okay, this is COVID. For example, in this
Hadith of the Prophet said, There is no such thing as contagious diseases. However, in another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, that do not feed healthy animals at the place where sick animals are fed. Okay, do not feed healthy animals at the place where sick animals are fed. So obviously, the process of him is advising them about contagious diseases because he's saying that diseases are contagious here. Likewise, he also said, when you see a leper, then flee from flee from him. And you know that leprosy is one of the most contagious diseases on the face of the earth, has leprosy been eradicated yet or not? No. As we know, leprosy is one of the most
evil of diseases that we create out of our faces from from it, and that it is also one of the most contagious diseases for the purpose of the local economy saying when you see a leper than one from him lucky one from a lion, just like you read from the light went away from his request. He said that if you hear of a plague in a certain towns Don't come close to it. Do you hear that a play has affected a certain place Don't come close to it. So when do I need the profit or the loss and I'm affirming the existence of contagious diseases. And yet in this heavy scene, he's negating it. Again, no contradiction. Basically, the correct opinion is that diseases are not contagious in and
of themselves. Roger, they are contagious by the will of Allah. So in this Hadith, the prophet is negating the superstitious customer, the superstitious beliefs that they have that diseases will end up in and of themselves, they have the power to be contagious, rather, only Allah subhanho wa Taala has the power to make you sick or to kill you from that sickness. Okay? So diseases that in and of themselves are not contagious, they are contagious by the will of Allah. Likewise, the prophet said, no fear. And we said the fear was a specific type of omens. Which The opposite is true with birds. Okay, so the Prophet is denying that this has no reality it doesn't exist. Okay? When a hammer, like
was one of the omens that he had was with another type of verse, this also does not exist without buffalo. Buffalo is one of the month of the RB calendars. And so the problem the other they had a they had a belief that the month of copper was a very unlucky month. Okay, just like an artist, we have certain times that are unlucky, like the 13th of the month or the Friday the 13th, okay, or other timings which are considered unlucky. So the Prophet is denying there's no such thing as suffer, in the sense that August is the month of suffering exists, but what is he denying the superstitious belief that they had that this was an unlucky time? And also we have to realize just
because the Prophet is referring to these four or five things, that doesn't mean that all other omens are existence? No, by pointing out to these things, the prophets of Allah Horton is automatically negating all other types of omens. I mean, and also in wisdom, he said, Well, no, no, we're going to get to in the next chapter basically means the setting point of the stars. Basically a type of astrology for the
you could say zodiacal signs are included in that Yeah, but it's more specific than that because basically comprise your astrology. So the Prophet is negating this branch of astrology.
doesn't have any reality and then he said what our own which the other translates as ghosts but basically a hole was a custom that they had that when an animal dies then it has a spirit inside it that was going to cause harm to other animals or other basically it's a type of ghost if you like the way that the other transition is the more specific beliefs they have. We don't have to go into detail the point is in this had these two provinces I mentioned a number of omens all of them are haram all of them don't exist. And by referring to these particular things, we can then make an apology we can make may be asked at all other types of omens are also prohibited in Islam.
Well, let me just quote you on FM. Before we move on, that they pretty much said that we were sitting with a bus and a certain bird flew by and screeched. Okay, so a man said, Oh, this is kind of good. This is a sign of good. Okay, you understand that a certain bird came by and screeched, if not bus was sitting there, a man in the gathering. He said, this is a sign of good, good, good luck charm. Basically, if your boss says, No, this is no good or evil. Lastly, what I show this is no sign of good noise. It's a sign of evil. That immediately responded to what he heard of this and corrected him of the superstitious belief. Just because you saw this bird just because you saw
something. It's still good at that time. If you run it, it doesn't mean anything. Likewise, false. He was also a distinctively on basketball with indicata ball syndicates and died.
I forgot 97 or something. I forgot one of the first century of age era. He was he was traveling with his companions. So a crowd a crowd a crow at
screeched. Okay, so a man said Good luck to sneezes Good luck. So farmers responded and what good is in a cruel screeching jaws accompany the actors because the vehicle was was said and what good is a close question what what good luck will this bring you guys but it doesn't mean anything and to severity in reprimanding the Cyrus was so much he said don't accompany me after this. Why? Because he has said something which goes against the hate. He has fallen into a minor type of shape. So in his angles that don't accompany me after this, okay, so look how severe this kind of work in their reputation and in their speaking against these type of omens. And in our times, unfortunately, the
Muslims have also been affected greatly by these types of superstitious beliefs.
And as well the last line who is reported to have heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, No I do contagions and no theodon bad omen but pleases me. So they asked what is a piece of Allahu alayhi wa sallam Hansard It is a good word. Okay. So in this I did we already discussed what I do I means contagious diseases we already discussed with Leah that means the type of woman from birth, but then the profits the love life adds on. But I like an optimism basically, a sign could be translated as optimism. I like optimism. So he was asked what is optimism? So the Prophet responded, a good word, a nice word. What does this mean that he likes optimism. It's the process of the worker
image instructing us that instead of seeking bad luck, or good luck through these charms or through these omens, right, a Muslim should instead have his put his trust in luck and expect the best from Allah. Muslims should expect the best from Allah. So therefore, when something occurs to him, he should say perhaps there is some good in this audience to say inshallah, Luke removes this evil from us very soon, basically be optimistic. This is a characteristic of the believers. So the Prophet said that he likes optimism. He likes a good word, when for example, you meet a sick person, right? The sooner that they inshallah follow through your story. For me, I love to use a good word. So the
Prophet is liking optimism and he doesn't like the superstitious things. He doesn't like mean is disliked, meaning it is harder. So he didn't like these types of things. But he did like the opposite of that. And that was having good presumptions of the lowest cost system of money. Okay, this is a part of our belief and we're gonna get to a chapter dedicated to this later on, it is a part of our the true Muslims belief, in that he always presumed the best whatever occurs to him, he presumed that Allah has done what is best for him. So, this is the meaning of the Prophet statements that he likes optimism. And when he was asked what is optimism, he said, it is a good word. In other
words, an optimistic word, a word that brings hope and cheers a person up okay, this is what is obviously this is there is no superstition or omens in this mill, rather, it is a drop that you make or it is a good statement that you say that will cheer the person up or cheer yourself up even. And this is why the process of he would like to good names. He would like a good name because it would cheer him up in the sense that if the name had a good meaning to it, then he would say inshallah, he is like that. Okay, if the person's name had a good meaning to it, then the Prophet the lowest enemy would like this from him. And that is why also by the way, he will change bad names. Okay. He met a
person by the name of I forgot the Arabic term basically to imply that he was ugly. Okay, so the Prophet commanded him to change it to
Have some, okay for even even a person's name it should have a good meaning to it. Therefore it is encouraged to keep names that have actual meaning to them versus names that are meaningless. Okay, and to keep a name that is of an evil or bad meaning this is at the least McCool and you might leave it might even be hot on okay.
It was a valid is not a budos reported that that didn't line up robiola line who said, At three o'clock taking bad omens was once mentioned before a lot of messages so long while he was settling, and he sallallahu alayhi wasallam said the best form of it is uncertain. It does not prevent a Muslim from his objective. Whenever any of you see something he dislikes, he should pray, oh, Lord, none but you brings good and none but you prevent evil, there is no power and no strength except in you.
Okay, make a correction here the author. So this is the mistake of saying, okay, a banana rather, it is otherwise in harmony. When you go back to the books of heavy it is the Overwatch, not okoma. So all of the manuscripts mentioned by the army of the author's books. But when you go back to the hijiki film, it's a slight mistake in his own life in harmony as a companion.
play in this idea of profit. So the law firm is saying that when omens were mentioned to him, he said, the best of them is uncertain as
to what is outside, we just discussed it, optimism. And we said that optimism doesn't really fall into the category of omens, that the Prophet is rejecting the concept of omens anything better than this is to have optimism. And then he went on and he said, What act i would do muslimah omens will never prevent a Muslim from doing something. So whenever an omen prevents a Muslim from doing something, that means that he has fallen into minus ships, okay, whenever an act occurred, and because of that act, you're like, Oh, this is bad luck. You know, I can't I can't do my deed here. Or I can't do what I was going to do. Whenever a Muslim is taught by an omen that shows you that he
has fallen into minus shape because the Prophet said that no Muslim will ever be repelled, no Muslim will ever stop doing what he's doing because of an omen. And then the Prophet told us a lot of kind of what to do when we see an omen. He said, If one of you see something that he doesn't like, if one of these sees an omen, when he should say a lot of them and is even hexadecimal to us that basically no a lot, no one comes with good except you and no one repelled evil except you What are How will I will of course, I love it, what is it? What does it mean to hold on for the logic, we discussed this in the fifth class,
there is no power left, what is holding me not power power means for
more than that, there is no change of state there is no movement if you like, except from you, and there is no power except from you. So basically, when you see something that your culture has ingrained in you as a superstition or an omen, then the way that you remove this from you is that you say Oh look, no one comes with good except you and no one else even accept you. In other words, these omens that I see are not worth anything. These omens cannot bring me good or evil from me, it is only from you over. So this is the way that a Muslim, a weak Muslim who is slightly affected by only the true believer, really, he should not even be affected by an omen. Okay, but a person
sometimes he might, his heart might be affected by it. So as long as it doesn't lead you to change your actions, inshallah, this is your not sinful, okay? And the way that you remove this part from you is that you say this law here that all locks no one brings good except you and no one remove evil except you when a holder will go with us in that deck. Now the point is, so the important point is Omen should never prevent you from actually doing anything, or argue to do something which you would otherwise not have done. When you see a good luck. You say okay, I'll do this, otherwise, they would not have done it. When you see some bad omens, you would say, Oh, I wouldn't do i'm not going
to do this act, otherwise, I wouldn't have done it. If a Muslim is affected in his course of action and he has fallen into minor shifts. However, if his heart is affected, but his actions are not, this is not mine to ship. This is a weakness of humans. This is a sign of the weakness of the mouse. And the way that you remove this is that you say this to us now.
It is narrated from even Mr. Roosevelt, the Allahu anhu in a metaphor Heidi fleoa is shook or Fiora is shared, there is none among us who does not feel something in his heart about it feel, but Allah removes it through trust in Him. This Hadith was reported by a Tinder movie and I was and it is stated that his last part is a statement of business. Okay, so the first part is a hadith and the last part is it is the same as yours what is the heavy, the heavy metal to ship to ship seeking omens a ship seeking omens a ship, the most clear and exclusive heavy so far. omens are a type of ship. And we said that in general, they are minor ship, but if a person actually believes that the
Omen, whatever he sees is the cause of good and that's a sign up with or the cause of evil and that's a sign of evil, this is major shift, okay? But in general, omens are a type of minor shape. And then the end of this of this idea is a statement of a mystery which is and there is no
Except that he is affected by it. Okay, so I need the culture that we have been raised in it is so effective that very few people could save themselves from even the effects of the heart. Like feeling this is bad luck. Okay, so what did we miss Ruth a part Allah would remove it with Philip good when you put your trust in Allah, the way that omens, the effective omens on your heart will be removed, is when you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the point is, when we see an omen, quote, unquote, in a good or bad omen, right, and our hearts are affected by it. Firstly, we should never be affected by it in our actions, our actions should never be affected by the type of
woman. Okay. Secondly, we should realize that this is a part of the weakness of our email and we have to remove this immediately. So the way we do this is by putting our trust in Allah, and by making the drive that was given in the last section. Now this is a very, very key point, look at what even the Masood is saying, even though Mr. Woods is one of the major. So However, despite that fact, he is saying that how few of us can avoid falling into omas in the sense His heart is going to be affected by it. Okay, if a person for 20 3040 years has been taught to sing an omen, or believing in an omen that seeing for the clovers, good luck or walking under a ladder is bad luck, that every
time you know opening umbrella and hustling the house, for example, every time he does this thing, to only going to come and put whispers in. Okay, so if you missed Oh, didn't say that no one's gonna fall into it. But he said the true believers, the true believers will remove it into your attic to look good by putting this trust in Allah. And also by the drive that was just mentioned in the previous Have you
reported from economical that the fault or the following is Heidi's. Whoever turns back because of the viola has committed shift. They asked, What is the atonement for such a sin? The prophets have long while it was seldom answered to say, Oh Lord, there is no good except the good which you bestow, and there is no evil except the evil which you decree, and there is no true God except for you.
But if not bad for the alarm line, who is reported to have said, a prayer law is that which causes you to carry something out, or that or that turns you back from your mission? Okay, so the point is, in these two narrations, the first one is the heaviest The second one is from Felipe Nabokov, the famous companion the cousin of I'm still living on top, basically, or the brother Yeah, sorry, the brother of Nablus. Basically,
what the free era what type of free era is shipped, what type of omens are shipped? exact, which affects your actions, okay, not what makes you, you know, some affection in your hearts for some change of you know, if you're feeling a bit fearful or a bit, you know, optimistic in your hearts know, what is actually shipped is when you are affected by that omens. And you do not do that D that you're going to do or you do a deed that you would otherwise not have done. So in this Hadith, the prophet said that whoever is stopped from his objective because of a fear because of omens has committed ships, okay. And in general, this is minus year, can we describe what it will be major
ship? For he was asked, What is the explanation of this? In other words, not
the exhibition, meaning how do we avoid falling into it? This is a proper understanding of this, how do you how do we avoid falling into committing discipleship to the process, having said that, you should say a lot of them will apply to Illa, hydrocarbyl, acleda, elaborado.
Although there is no good accept from you, and there are no omens or evil, except from you, and there is no god besides you. So the point is, when we see an omen, right, there are a number of hours that the processor told us to say, this is one of them, like was the guy that was mentioned to Heidi's ago, also is a very similar one. Okay, so the point is, the profits of him instructed us that we should not be affected by omens. And specifically, we should not change our course of actions because of an illness. And whoever changes his course of action because of an illness has committed shift. However, like we said, if he has affected his heart, but he doesn't change his
actions, this is a sign of weakness of email, he should remove it immediately by saying these drafts likewise the public,
or the public of NAB, but he states that what are really omens, in other words, the omens that are shipped, are that which will prevent you from doing something or cause you to do something. In other words, you actually change your actions. So to conclude this chapter, we say that, to be affected by omens, to change your course of action because of Omen either a good omen or a battle, but it doesn't matter. This is an act of minor shift. And it could be major shift. It could be major change, if you think that that Omen is the cause of good or evil, not the sign of good and evil, you understand the distinction distinction between the cause and the sign, right? If you believe that
you know that bird or that good, is actually causing you good, this is shift, major shift, you're believing that that is God basically. But if you think that that's the sign, and this is what the majority of mankind falls into, that you think that that is a sign of good or evil, then this is a minor shift, which doesn't exclude you from Islam, but it is very close. It means it will lead you eventually to major shifts. Now if a person is affected in his heart
By all means, we say that this is not minor shift, as long as he doesn't put it into action, but this is a sign of weakness of humans and the way that you get rid of it the way that you remove it is by putting your trust in Allah and by saying these guys that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam mentioned
chapter number 29 what is said regarding astrology, okay, so, we already mentioned in the previous chapter we hinted at the fact that astrology is a type of shift, and now we will move into greater detail about a whole chapter specifies specifically devoted to astrology, we defined further define for us, the difference between astrology and astronomy Can you do so again?
Okay, so to put it more precise, astrology is the science by which you view the science or they will be a part of evil arts, by which mankind presumes that his life will be affected by the movement of the stars, okay, his life and what occurs in his life is either foretold or actually dependent doesn't matter. In other words, the future or the past. So if you were born in this particular constellation, this is good luck. Okay, if you see this star, this will mean that this will happen to you. It doesn't matter whether it's from the past or the future, that either his life will be affected or is affected by the movement of the stars. This is astrology, when you say that there is
a direct relationship between the stars and your life. Okay. Astronomy, on the other hand, is a physical science by which you plot out the, you know, the movement of the stars, and when they will appear and when they will disappear. And when they will be in this section of the sky. Basically, it says simple science, where you don't really presume that it has any effect on your life. And we said that astronomy is allowed and astrology is hot on any type of shape. Now, by the way, astronomy, some of the scholars of the past even dislike astronomy, even astronomy. Why? Because they felt that it would lead to astrology. Okay, we're going to talk a little bit more about this in this chapter.
Mount Buhari recorded in his death row Viola patidar human law said a lot created the stars for three purposes as ornaments for of the heavens. Number two as missiles against the devils and three as signposts for the guidance of travelers. Whoever interprets them otherwise is mistaken. Such a person will lose his reward and is taking upon himself that which he has no knowledge of. Okay. corteza who is
our guy that even drama to do see he died? 103 100 Okay, without me even even drama. So Lucy died. 1231 of the famous students have given advice also. Okay. They've not busted by the way many, many of the Sahaba had major students and most of them specifically even Ibis, and I believe in Massoud and they didn't the fabric in particular and
in logic, these four practices are having particularly the rest behind them famous schools if you like pull all the different generations basically studied under these people said ms behind them a lot of famous authors of the guy that was one of them dismissive novice. So the problem is that most of them sell excuse me, like that, that says that unless of hydrostatic has created the stars for three reasons, okay? Only for three reasons. One of these three reasons. If you fall into them, that's fine. If you believe in them, that's fine. If you do anything besides these three men, you are falling into shape. What are the three reasons Firstly, as a beautification for the skies, by
the way, all of these three reasons they have versus behind them, okay, the first Zenith and
or the, the beautification of the sky. This is mentioned in sort of MOOC verse five, what are called is the endless journey, remember, we have we have beautified the skies of the heavens, the skies of the earth, excuse me, are beautified disguise of the earth, by these lobbies, or by these stars. And any person that looks up in the desert or you know, away from the city when he looks up, and he sees the full sky shining and glittering with the stars. He knows what effect this has on him and how beautiful it looks. And imagine had these nothing created, the sky would have looked so bland at night, but rather less nothing has made it sparkling skin to me like it's a, you know, a whole you
know, a bunch of jewels, just you know, decked out in the sky, it's so beautiful. And the person that looks up in the sky away from the city, he realizes this, you know, and a lot says in the product, one of the purposes of the creation of the stars is to beautify the skies. Okay. The second reason Allah created the
the stars is to act as barriers between the shape on as whisper and listening on to the angel conversation. Basically, as we already mentioned, the share of clean they go up and they try to eavesdrop on the angel. So Allah How can I then send
apartment a shooting star. And this is by the way, what a shooting star meteorite is is that a lot striker that uses is to cause the shell team to go back down to earth because they are prohibited from going higher up and listening to the conversation of the angels. And this is also referred to as sort of multiverse fight Allah says the Hutu militia seen that these are
basically pelting stones against the shale thing.
And the third reason a lot of credit starts is to act as a guiding light to act as signposts Okay, and this is a virtual assistant number 16. While Murphy will be he will be able to do that by the stars, they are guided. So this is basically one of the one of the branches of astronomy is that people look at the stars and they say that this is the North Star and you know, it's this time of the month, this certain star will be on this side of the sky and the travelers do at night they look at the stars and they know how to be guided by it, okay. Likewise the Muslims of old they would calculate the fibula based upon the stars, you know, just like they would do so at daytime based
upon the sun at nighttime, they would do so based upon the stars, okay. So these three reasons are what stars are used for islamically anyone who goes beyond them, like casada said, he has fallen into a grave error, and he has lost his share of the Hereafter, not just for what the proper translation would be whose share to share no feeble, his share of the hereafter he has lost it. Why because he has fallen into shin and he has fallen into that which he has no knowledge about, he has fallen into a realm that is beyond his human mind. So the first asset or the first statement that the author brings, in this chapter, he is outlining for us what's the purpose of the story, the real
purpose of the stars, and by outlining to us the real purpose of the stars he is negating all false purposes of the stars.
todorov has reported that the learning of the lunar phases was permitted by athlete and is how discouraged by portada and prohibited by Ariana
balsa Robbie, a long line who is reported to have said that a lot of messengers so little about writing.
So now in this in this narration, the author is showing us he's talking about astronomy, not astrology, the author is showing us that some of the setups still owe the scholars in the past. They even did not like astronomy, astrology by email or by consensus is how, okay, but some of these called efficient photography,
even arena. Okay, that was better. We just talked to my
students I bet. Sofia even arena is one of the scholars of Hadith and one of the teachers have a moment to kind of Marina so he's way after puntata Okay, so fanomena he died 198 he, he's one of the teachers of if not,
No, no, it's even the mean, even or
even or any kind of an arena.
So basically, the author is mentioning that some of the scholars in the setup, they didn't even like astronomy, forget astrology, because they were so cautious that it might lead you to astrology. Okay, but he is saying that some of the some of the scholars such as academics, and it's helpful to have local Mullah
Mohammed, one of the members, Medina
close to 40
to 40, I think around that time, very good. Yeah. Remember that fully this house?
has a good one?
No, it helped him in La Jolla, given who you are, or how if, depending on which philosophy falls anyway, it's happened in La Jolla, and he died when 234 I think is he is he is by the way, one of the there Excuse me, I say there is one of the teachers of hardest. No, no, he's one of the teachers of the teachers of ohana. In other words, two generations before, okay, it's talking about who is the primary teacher. Okay, so Sally Marina is one of the teachers of the teachers. So he's two generations before boycotting. Okay, sorry, big mistake is how David Ahuja, he was one of the main teachers at the point of this effort of the point of this, this variation is to show you that some
of the setups, some of the scholars of the past they didn't even like astronomy, but some of them they allowed and the correct opinion is that it is allowed. The correct opinion is that it is allowed based on the fact that Allah subhana wa tada created the stars, one of the reason that he created the stars was to what
to guide to guide beautify disguises not really astronomy, astronomy, one of the main purpose of astronomy is to act as guidance basically in the sense that which way is north and south and you know directions are similar in this. So the curse opinion is that it is allowed it is permissible to study astronomy and there is no sin with it whatsoever. Okay, but astrology, the smaller it and the larger it is how long and by the way, the author already mentioned several Hadith which he didn't repeat here, in the previous chapters about astrology you could remember them
I already mentioned them, but have you thought about astrology which you should realize Are you know, he already mentioned them a few chapters ago of them is, whoever takes a branch of astrology that he has taken a branch of
ship, whoever takes a hold on to a branch of astrology, then he has taken a branch of ship. And the more he increases, the more his ship also increases. Okay. And there's another idea that you should write down, which is an authentic hadith. That's what I fear most for my oma, which I fear most for my own math is
what I hear most from my own math is
firstly, the belief in the stars. In other words, astrology, the belief in the stars, secondly, to deny predestination to deny others. Okay? And thirdly, unjust leaders, in other words, scholars and political leaders because every time the word leader occurs on us and you should apply to both of these meaning scholars and political leaders unless there's reason otherwise, okay, so in this authentic hadith with Joshua money has made us authenticated, made it so hey, he says that's the thing that I fear the most from my own life, or that they believe in stars meaning astrology, and they deny predestination, they departed, and misguided scholars or misguided rulers need three
things the processor fears the most for his own money.
Now, the next study,
will Moosa robiola one who was reported to a set that allows messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said three types of people will not enter Paradise, the habitual drinker, the believer in sorcery, and the one who severs blood relations. Okay, now in this idea, the process that I'm saying that
three types of people will not enter Paradise.
Now some of them they will never enter Paradise is the one that preserves leaves and sorcery he has committed major shakey, we will never ask for the other two, then they will not enter Paradise meaning immediately, okay, and they will enter it later on, because they still have the basis of the Haven This is COVID and other narrations. So the process of them said three people will never enter Paradise, the one who is addicted to intoxication, commerce, okay, the continuum or the habitual drinker. So he who always drinks people always taking drugs throughout his life, okay, that is punishment is very severe punishment is very severe. And, you know, this, basically, the meaning of
this heavy is that he will not enter paradise for a long period of time. Okay, that doesn't mean that he's going to eternally be down to the fire of how low the photon is clear on this point, that Hello, forgive everything except the scent of chips, okay? Likewise, he who cooked off his blood type, this is also a very major sin, that your brothers and your father and your mother and your sisters and you know that your relatives, okay to cut off your ties with them, if you don't speak with them, and you don't feel call them if you don't contact them. This is a major sin. And it's not that you cut your ties off. Now, obviously, the closer a person is to you, and your blood
relationship, the more rights he has from you. And the further he is away from you, then the less rights he has upon, you know, that's a whole chapter or topic in and of itself, in and of itself, to,
you know, make sure that you fulfill the ties of kinship. And the last point and this is the point of bringing this idea is He who believes in sorcery or magic. And the point of this hadith is that the author is trying to show that or trying to say that his opinion and the curriculum is that astrology is a type of magic. And we already covered this in the previous chapter of magic. astrology is a type of magic. So the point is the prophets below kind of saying that he who believes in magic and astrology is a part of magic. So he who believes in astrology will not enter agenda, okay? So zodiacal signs, for instance, and this is pure astrology, this is pure astrology, the 12
zodiac signs, He who believes in it and thinks that this is true, then this is a type of shift, this is a type of shift that because of which it is possible that he will never antigen, okay? Now, obviously, astrology can be very, it's a minor second major shift, like we always say that she is of two types, minor and major, if you think that
these stars are indications of good and bad luck, and this is my new shift. And if you think that the stars are the cause of good and bad luck, or good and bad effects that occur to you, then this is major shift, which exposure from the fold of Islam. So going back to your intention, astrology could be a major, a minor shift, or a major shift now the next chapter
chapter number 30, seeking rain through the lunar lunar phases. Okay, so basically, this chapter is a follow up on astrology. One of the customs of the jelly A times was that the people would believe that
the phases of the moon or the phases of the stars, they were causes, or they were signs by which we could ask for rain from. Okay, so basically, if we live or if a certain star sex or the moon was a certain time that this was like a good luck charm, or something that would bring about the rain. Okay, so in this Hadith, or in this chapter, the author is trying to show you that this tool is a type of ship
A lot of the most exalted said, and instead of thinking a lot for the provision he gives you, on the contrary, you deny Him, okay? Now this verse must be understood in light of the interpretations of the Sahaba. Up to this risk, obviously, at face value, this verse doesn't seem to have any relationship to the chapter at hand. But in the Ibis, he interpreted this verse to mean that when it rains, then you say, Oh, this is a good luck of this scarf. This is because of the setting place of this job, okay? We it was rained upon us always received this blessing, not because of a law, but because that certain star was seen last night. So this is the effect of that star, this star brought
about good luck, or because that star set in a certain place. So the interpretation of this verse, according to him, not bad is that instead of thanking Allah, when rain falls upon you, instead of thanking align worshipping Him, instead, you deny Allah and you believe in the stars instead. So do you understand the purpose of disperse, read the verse again, right at face value, it seems to have no relationship to is to call or to ask him from the stars. But if not, that's interpreted this verse by saying that, instead of setting a low when it rains, instead you deny him by attributing this rain to the stars, okay? And this is going to be more expensive to take it up in the next
and the rest
of humanity because it will be a long line who narrated was Mr. Silla when he was selama, saying, My oma will not abandon for undesirable matters from the period of ignorance. Over they will not abandon pridefulness and ancestors, slandering someone's lineage, seeking rain according to the stars, and limitation and whaling of women for the dead. Sea Scylla lohani was headed further said, if the bewailing woman does not repent before her death, she will be raised in a day of resurrection covered with the dress of liquid pitch, and a cloak and a cloak of itches, Mary, is that okay, now in this heavy
fashion, oh, what are you translating that but in this idea, the prophet Sultan is saying that four things will remain in my own life from the time of God, you know, know that anytime in the Quran or soon enough when something is attributed to generally it is an evil thing. It is a disgusting act. Okay, anytime anything is attributed to Jacqueline. Okay, this shows that this is how long it doesn't have to say it's head on, as long as you attributed to God of the prophet or the last record attributed to God, like a leftism Hold on, when asked about Raj Nagar Baba Ji in India today talking to him. And he says, Don't display your beauty, like the woman of God used to display the beauty
because they will go with their chests and their bosom uncovered. So the allowance method is saying the forest don't display your beauty like the woman has definitely displayed the beauty attribute think this display to jeconiah will shows you is how anything which is attributed to god yes, automatically implies that it is discussing him in his house. So in this ID, the property thing that four things will remain of my own. Now some people might understand that it's a positive thing you will remain that means this allows No, this is a fact or a prediction. It's not trying to show you that it's allowed. This is merely a statutory prediction that my alma will always have four things
of the things of God, it doesn't mean that it's allowed, it means that the Prophet is winning up against it by telling us that these things are of the generality of things, what is the first thing as Socrates
and the Prophet also said, they will never leave these four things, meaning that some people of my own luck will always be guilty of these things. Not necessarily that the omo be guilty of it, no, they're always going to be people that are free of it. But at the same time, there will also be people till the Day of Judgment that will be practicing one or all of these four things. And we know very well, every single one of us is well aware that these four things still exist in this world. The first one is to be proud of your lineage, okay? To be proud of your, you know, ancestors, that I am of this ethnicity, I am of this race, my ancestors include so and so I am the son of so and so
was the grandson of so and so. And this is what is known as what
racism basically, it's a form of racism, okay, that this particular ethnicity is superior to others. I am Punjabi, I am Bengali, I am whites, whatever, it doesn't matter. If you are proud, because of this type of, you know, thing, then this is the most disgusting acts of God. If you think that you are better than someone because of your lineage, because of your ancestry because of your race, because of your ethnicity, then this is one of the most disgusting acts of jelenia and I'm going to go to a hadith which will really shock you, but I think you're prepared for Do you think I should call it or not?
Okay, let's turn the microphone off.
Okay, please. Also the sisters are probably better not to we'll talk about later on. But daddy shows you how disgusting. Watching McCall is.
And he's talking about your ancestors and being part of your ancestors is okay. The second thing that the processes have said is to find your friends and family, which means
cursing or impugning your unsub, meaning your lineage. Now what is this means the opposite. What does this mean that your Christian lineage means that the process of discard this ended up another ID, that you could say someone's parent, and then he curses your parents, okay? You've heard another Muslim parent or another person start and that will cause that person to curse your parents. So it is as if you have caused your parents to be Christian. Okay, so when you when you curse another person's parents, this too is of the major sins. This too is of the matters of God with the prophets, the last sentence he explicitly forbade. The third thing and this is the point of this
chapter is to seek or to attribute rain to the stars, to attribute rain to the stars. And this aspect also has existence in certain cultures to our times, and even if this particular act is in existence, and astrology is still practiced, and astrology, this is one of the forms of astrology. So basically, the pessimism is saying that astrology will always remain a discipline, and how many Muslims are there that are affected by the zodiacal signs, they still open up the papers and they read, you know, what their particular thing is going to be? Okay, whatever sign they have, even from concerning whether they liberal and
cancer and Genesis, all of these rights, Leo, all of these things, how many Muslims are, believe it or not so many Muslim countries, they publish this in the newspapers. Okay. You go to any Muslim country, except for one or two, any Muslim country, their national papers and their dailies, you know, they're gonna have a special slice of the zodiac. And this is shipped, this is shipped. And yet they are the ones publishing it and giving it to them. Listen, we're not talking about the Houston Chronicle here. No, we're talking about Muslim newspapers, paper, you know, things that are published even in the Gulf countries like Kuwait and Qatar. I see with my own two eyes, I was
shocked, at least Arabia, even by the way, Saudi Arabia, I remember when I was a child in the 80s, they used to publish the zodiacal sign in the paper. But I'm good enough, the scholars were alerted to this fact that it is being published in Saudi Arabia. So they prevented it. So to this date, I'm good enough from that time. It is not published. But I do remember in the early 80s, even in Saudi Arabia, this they had a section zodiacal section, okay. And even to this day in Kuwait, and Qatar and so many countries, they have a section in the in the daily newspapers forget Foxconn in Turkey, of course, by Danny Of course, they're gonna have this I'm talking about even those countries that
are considered moderate and conservative, they have this type of things published in the newspapers to look out to the public sector was that astrology will remain in the oma and the last thing that he mentioned was a near half or willing to death. And this is something that unfortunately, is so prevalent in our culture and customs that when someone dies, you know, the ladies and even sometimes, then they start shrieking and they start wailing and they start moaning, and they all have the capacity to cry is allowed, okay to be patient is is obligatory to not curse, you know, alone is mentioned in audits is also obligatory, but to go more than this, to start winning out loud
or to beating your chest or to tear your clothes, okay, or to you know, moon, and all of these separate things. These are from the accent Jacobean, okay? to cry, naturally, it is of the center, the processing client, when his funding for him dies, he cried in his tears, and his tears made his beard when this is under the sun. But to go beyond this, this is what is of the acts of God. And so this the and then the, the end portion of the Hadith in another narration, the part of the process that I mentioned, the type of punishment that the woman will have, who is practicing this type of willing now for
a better translation for
did or mindgems, a armor of scabies, okay, is that basically she will, she will have the type of disease on her body, okay. And she's going to be wearing loads of feline or molten copper, okay, for clothes will be a molten copper. And she will have a, a jacket or a delta of scabies on it, and in the sense that she's going to be a very severe punishment. And the properties I mentioned women because they are the ones that do this more than men, it doesn't mean that it's allowed for men to do so. Okay, but the reason he mentioned women is because of the fact that as is even in our time still common. And this is why it is not about going into court, a graveyard. They are the ones that
fall into this type of willing more than lenge when their husband or their father or something like this dies, then they start wailing and they start screaming, and these are of the acts of jeconiah. And the process has been described is that if she doesn't repent, so if you did this action, she did not repent of that act before she died, then she will be guilty of or she will fall into the punishment that is outlined in this whole you know, narrative
As the Father robiola, one who alleged messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let us in the fudger prayer and padega after a rainy night, on completion of the Salaam, he faced the people and said, Do you know what your Lord, the widow has revealed? Or has said that people replied a lot and His Messenger know best. He said, Allah has said, in this morning, some of my slaves remained as true believers and some became this believers. Whoever said that the rain was due to the blessings and the mercy of Allah is the one who believes in me, and he just believes in the stars. And whoever said that it rains because of a particular star. It is. He is a disbeliever in me and a believer in
Okay, now in this has he read the verse? As a researcher, I know there's nothing in this hadith which is the whole point of the chapter, the primary headache in this chapter, the prophets of the Leviathan and prayed the fudger prayer in the morning of her debut, and the night before when did her debut occur? Who knows what you're good at?
15 Mashallah, the process of impact away in the 10th 11th zhanka credit 15
Particular hitches when the
DVR occurred, what is the
But it didn't it
Exactly, it was the treaty that the Prophet said them when they left Medina, to Makkah to perform Roma, they were prevented from doing so they were prevented from doing. So, you know, this is a very beneficial incident to talk about, by the way, you have a lot of benefits from the incident, a lot of benefits. Primarily, it shows you the patient that the Muslim should have at the time of persecution, that the machine in front of them, they persecuted certain slaves that were Muslims, and yet the Prophet and the believers did not do anything. It didn't become emotional, they didn't become, you know, because of the aspects of the treaty was that
all Muslims that come to Medina, that are slaves that don't have permission for the Masters, they must be returned. Okay, so when the Prophet has sort of agreed to this, right when he agreed, or right before the right before, he said, Yes, a slave came in his change in his change. Okay. And he's and he was leading it, he was the signs of torture upon it. Okay. So the process that I'm fed, allow me this one man, and then I'll say, yes, allow me just this one men to come with us. And the person that was giving the treaty so hated, and I was, right, so hate that kind of he wasn't a Muslim, but he eventually became Muslim after that, at that, at that time, he said, Nope, I'm not
going to smash the Prophet against that just this one month alone. And after that, we'll you know, not didn't make this one exception for me again, so he said, No. Okay. So at this point, the Congress or Senate has to look at, we call it the mcse, the Harvard the benefits of the whole oma versus one that's so the muffler the benefits of the home are better than this one. So he said, okay, the one that when so he was adamant that he's not going to give up to sleep. Okay. The prompt doesn't have to agree and discard a number of habits, such as default to become very angry. And because of this anger, by the way, I'm not repented of his anger, because it was not permissible. It
was not proper that it become angry at the decree of Allah's Messenger, okay. But he became very angry, because you don't remember how he was, you know, we don't have to say this, you know, and he was walking with his swords wanting to attack the machine. Okay, he wanted to do something physical. But he didn't realize that, at times in Islam, you don't do things that are physical, you control your anger, you look at the greater benefit, okay. And, you know, there are many benefits, we don't have time to go into the medicine for the VA, but of the greatest benefits is that you have to look at the broader benefits just because for example, one Muslim might be being persecuted somewhere in
the world, it doesn't mean we have to do something rash, it doesn't mean that we forget our senses and lose our senses, we have to look at the whole picture. Okay. And the Treaty of Geneva, by the way, had so many benefits from it, everyone realized afterwards, that the Treaty of Bolivia was the cause of the acceptance of Islam of 1000s of people that because of the Treaty of finavia, literally 1000s and 1000s of people accepted Islam before the conquest of Moscow. Before the conquest of Morocco we have, you know, like we said, there's a good point to talk about, we don't have time in this lecture. So basically, in the morning of Libya, the prophets have sort of turned around the
night before it had rained. So the Prophet said, Do you know what your lawyer said last night? Do you know what your Lord said last night? So from this Hadith, we find that one of the attributes of a lot is that he speaks, one of the attributes of Allah is that he speaks in a manner that is befitting to him and we don't question it. So they responded, a lion is messenger, no vest, so the Prophet sallallahu I kind of responded that your Lord
some of my service for the morning came they believed in me. And when the morning came, they distribute to me.
Okay, so when the morning came with the dawn broke last night that I said, similar service have believed in me, and some of them have turned into disbelievers. And he who says, that we were it was rained upon us or the rain came by Allah blessings at his mercy, that he is a believer in me and they disbelieve in the stars, but he who says that it was rained upon it because of the blessings of so and so, a star or the setting place of such as a star or because of the lunar have such a such a lunar phase, then this person has this belief in me and believed in the stars. Basically, he who attributes this rain to a certain aspect of astrology, okay, He who believes that the effects of
this rain were due to this start or this lunar phase of the moon, that he is a disbeliever in me, look at the strength of what the law says, look at the harshness of what is being said he is a disbeliever in me and a believer in the stars. So the point is, when you presume that astrology has any effect on this life, then you are falling into this premium.
When you presume that you have some good or bad luck because of this aspect of astrology, whether it's the zodiacal signs, whether it's a certain star that you see whatever it is, all of these type of things. They are they make a person disbelieve in Allah and believe in the stars, okay. And we said that this could be a minor type of shift or a major type of shift, depending on the intentions that a person has not.
A Muslim also have a similar idea from in our best or the love line that where it's been said that a lot revealed the following verses and sorts of lucky are
the verses 75 to 82, when some said that it rained because of such and such star, Allah says so I swear by the setting points of the stars, and barely that is indeed a great oath if you bought new. This is indeed an honorable recital in a book well guarded. None can touch it, but those who are pure
revelation from the Lord of the worlds is it such a talk that you just delivers? deny, and instead for the provision he gives you On the contrary, you deny him? Okay, now, what is the point of quoting these verses?
Okay, the first point is you look at this chart, and also what is the last verse, the last verse here, which I learned is click on nickels, because everyone writes, we already mentioned the interpretation of this verse, that instead of thanking Allah for the provisions that she shows you, you deny Him, how did you interpret this verse? We just mentioned this 10 minutes ago, right?
Are you guys paying attention?
Instead of thinking a lot, how did you not messenger which is worse?
When it rains, instead of thanking Allah for that rain, instead of worshipping Allah, you attribute this rain to the stars, okay? This is the interpretation of the second portion of this first set, when it rains instead of thanking Allah for that rain. Instead, you attribute the rain to the stars, okay, this is an interpretation of the second or the last verse. Also, another point of quoting these verses is that Allah subhana wa, tada is giving an oath or swearing by the setting place of the stars. Okay, and now these setting places of the stars, this is what then we should, again, the Jamelia people, they would have superstitious customs. This is the whole point that they would
believe that if the star set at a certain place, this would bring back or good luck. This is the whole point of this chapter that they would see graded by these omens. If that starts set in that place, if that star disappeared in that place, in that portion of the sky, they would think it's good luck. And if it disappeared in other parts of the sky, they will consider that bad luck. So like swearing by the setting place of the stars, what does it mean that the less words right, it has a number of things? Firstly, it shows you that Allah is the one that created those stars in the first place. Okay, so instead of taking back your superstition to the setting place of the stars,
why don't you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala, who created those stars in the first place, and who created setting point of those stars? Likewise, it shows you that this is a great sign or a miracle of the miracles of Allah, because know that Allah subhanho wa Taala, whenever he gives an oath, by created objects, it shows is that that critical object has a great significance or a great aspect to it. So Alexa swears by the dawn, he swears by time, okay, he swears by the sun and the moon, it shows you that these are great signs they are, they are great miracles of the miracles of Allah. Likewise, he swears by in this verse for setting points of the stars. So it shows you that
the creation of the stars and the movement of the constellations, this is one of the great miracles of Will this kind of data, and it also shows you that the one that created them has more rights to be feared and loved and activated good or evil to then the stars. Okay, so the point of these verses is twofold. Firstly, in the beginning, Allah says that he swears by the setting place of the stars, and this shows you that he is the one that has created the stars. So instead of being superstitious about the stars, you should rather put your trust in Allah
The last verse also in these verses, we interpreted the interpretation of a bit our best. I don't think we have time to move on to
say so inshallah with us we conclude, by the way, what we're going to do. Throughout this week, we're going to follow a traditional schedule. Next week, we have Monday, Tuesday and half of one day, all we're gonna do is get episode eight. Okay, all we're gonna do is collaboratively we'll finish up stuff this week, inshallah, all we're going to do is get out of it and inshallah Tada, we will finish the book and that is our golden Sharma.
Article, I'm sure later.
First question is archaeology. How long? Are there any types that are okay, such as digging up dinosaurs or animals?
archeology is Heloise. As long as you do it with the proper intention. Okay. archaeology to study the remains of the previous generation, Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to looking at the remains of the previous generation, and that this should increase your amount in a loss. This should increase your level of Allah and fear of Allah. When you see for example,
I was reading an article in what's called National Geographic rice. Rice, a very good magazine, I was reading an article about the race in South Africa and on top of South America, what is that? famous straits that builds pyramids? The Mayans? Yeah, okay. And I was reading that they uncovered a new
palace or something, one of the kings of the minds they had, and they were describing the glory and the grandeur of that palace. And even I was amazed that how beautiful their palaces and the rooms and their instruments, their eating utensils, and the drinking utensils, how beautiful and how gorgeous, really, they looked, you know. So let's type in and mention the type of things in the format and he says, this should increase your amount of Allah, they should increase your fear of Allah, look at these people, they passed before you they did these things. They built these monuments and now they don't exist. Allah destroys us. Okay, Allah destroy them, they have no
existence, it is as if they never existed except for this fine. You don't even find many times when you find their bodies. To this day, for example, the Mayans? Many of them, you just find cities with no bodies. Right? The Aztec also right, you find cities with no bodies, you just find huge structures, pyramids, massive structures, but no bodies. So in these times in these archaeology, archaeological facts are science for us to ponder over. If we study it with the proper intention, that of coming closer to a law and of taking lessons from their destruction and taking lessons that just like they existed before us, we turn our existence and we to leave just like they left We too
will leave. So if we increase our amount of this aspect is fine. But obviously there are certain hidden aspects of archaeology tools, such as exalting the graves and exalting you know, the people of the past we should realize that there's a limit that we go to an archaeology you know, I wouldn't encourage any Muslim to dedicate his lifetime to archaeology but at the same time, it's we can benefit from the science and in general, is a highlight of science to study. Likewise, being of dinosaurs and animals, we've also had to study shows you the power and the creation of a love that he created other aspects he created other animals to and it doesn't go against a monkey but even in
dinosaurs, it doesn't go against them at all to study that
it was permissible to note certain observations such as if the sunset is read there will be rain and other country folk folklore etc. Also, some people say things like if your stomach hangs low, you will have a boy or signs you might have a boy is like cramps, etc. What about intuition, many mothers have an intuition that they will have a boy or girl etc. are all these allowed, if they have some link without believing as if they have some than the footnote, they can be connected in some way not completely unrelated link without believing it is certain and sane in sha Allah.
After the person if the sun is red, then there's going to be rain, right? This seems to be a clear indication of what the items used to do have their you know, activating their lunar phases and astrology because, you know, astronomically, and what do you call that weather forecasting? What's the time meteorologically was right, this is this is unconfirmed. So, we have to make a clear differentiation between the sciences and folklore. And the thing that is folklore related for sure is omens, anything that is Meteor Meteor logically related right pure science and that you study the the air pressure and the barometer pressure and the moisture of the air and where the wind is
blowing from and then you try to give a presumed to get where it will rain, right? This is not this is not how long as long as you say, inshallah it will rain here or inshallah this will occur because you're you're not really predicting the future. basing on the assumption that you have. You're saying that it seems as if it is going to come here, this is a science, so that is not held on. As long as you say in Sharla and you realize it obviously Allah has the power to change it if he wishes. This is a science, however. folklores to precision
customs culture. This is what we're talking about those that goes back to old wives tales as they say, this, these are all omens as for these things that if your stomach hangs lower So, I mean, I don't know, is this something biologically proven? Or is it something that mothers say? I mean, if this is a superstition that we should avoid it is something that is biologically shorter proven. This is another, another aspect that goes back to biology, Okay, last for intuition that they have a boy or girl, and Sharla just doesn't fall into my shake. It's just like, you know, I feel that I'm gonna have a boy or girl as long as they realize that, you know, it's intuition. There's nothing,
there's no Omen involved. There's no superstition involves, it's just something that they feel that inshallah I'm going to have a boy or girl, you know, as long as they don't attribute that to something they don't, you know, you know, presume that because of this, or because of that, I'm going to have a boy or girl if it's just something that they feel in their hearts that I think I'm going to have a boy inshallah This doesn't fall into minor major shape, but they should realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that knows what is in their wombs electricity says in the Quran, he knows what it is in the wombs of women, and no one else knows this. Okay? Specifically,
especially even in our times, you might say we can, you know, see x rays and whether it's a boy or girl was those x rays, you can only see them after a certain period of time four or five, six months, okay? For the first time that I know though, there's going to be a boy or girl even before it is conceived, and from conception until that X ray can be seen a lot smarter than that. Okay. So as long as we don't give it some supernatural thing, I don't see any problem with these intuitions. And also, as long as we know that our last record is the one that is going to give us before we go.
Is it true that the province of love it was Southern recommended or did not recommend us to travel on certain days? And did the province of Larson recommend for us to do certain things in odd numbers and for what reason?
Do you have a decision go back to Ole Miss doing things in odd numbers, okay, this is because Allah subhanho wa Taala likes odd numbers. The prophets Allah says that Allah is wicked, meaning he is one. And he lets you know what an odd number and he likes odd numbers, and he loves odd numbers. So when we do a deed, many kinds of processes and told us certain things, we should do them an odd number of times, such as, for example, washing the dead body, the prophets have said encouraged us to it an odd number of times, okay. Likewise praying the night prayer the witness, he said, play as many as you want. And this is one of the proofs that they used to say that God always has unlimited,
pray as many as you want to to and then when you want to get when you when you are tired, or when you feel that God is going to come for your witness. So you make the whole mind clear. It's not because of all Mr. superstitions, it's because Allah subhanaw taala like odd numbers and the Prophet has encouraged us to pray or to do certain things in odd number of times. As we're traveling on certain days. I don't know of anybody doing any
No, that's a stupid shoot you're traveling to fight isn't as bad as to the Prophet himself on the last set of recommending or prohibiting traveling a certain date. I don't know of anything, please bring me the heavy scissors one. I don't recall anything at this point in time. Because the problem is a loved one it was sent him here last week. I thought only Moosa Elisa Lam has this ability. No, on the contrary, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam heard Allah subhanho wa Taala speak, he heard Allah subhana wa tada speak. And this was in his nice journey of under Sadat was not ours. Okay, the prophets Allah sent him as one of the narratives says that you believe he went to a place
and then he told us I cannot go beyond this place. You
can see when he was taking the profit up, a certain point was reached where she believes that I'm not allowed to go beyond here. So the profits within him went alone more than this, and this is where the five prayers will make obligatory the Profit System through Allah subhanaw taala directly speak Okay, he heard a lot from for the speak and this was a time where this occurred. Marcel also heard a lot speech was that also heard a lot of speech. It doesn't mean that nor the Prophet heard of us speech. No. And we know that the angel specific names of God and also other angels, they hear my speech. So is this Is it wrong to say that due to someone's piety, things fall into place easily
for them? No, this is not an omen or superstition. This is this is a common sense in the sense that Allah subhana wa tada he who is pious, right, Allah will bless him and this one on the hereafter. Okay, this is one of the signs of the pious person inshallah, the general sign doesn't mean it's going to happen to everyone. But the general side is that it looks nothing like a lesson on a woman
who feels a lot alone. laters an exit or a path easy for him was open and hatred. And Allah will bless him from ways and means that he did not expect a load lift him in ways that he didn't even presume that he could be blessed from so if you have Taqwa of Allah, Allah, Allah will bless you in this life in the hereafter. These are a superstitious omens. This is a really common sense and it is mentioned in the Quran in the center.

You must keep the name that of your family that you have because it shows you that you are belonging to your father and since you are your father's son, you should not change your last name unless that name has some type of

That keep it as a fact of the nature you pointed out and when you say that this name should do you should not have an if a person has a lesson that must be changed, you should go to an island and ask him his opinion about whether you should change it around because it goes back to the name also. But, no, you should not change your family name for no reason. You should not change your family name for no reason.
Are women not allowed to go to graves or just not allowed to go to their funerals? No women should go to the funeral prayers. Women should go to the funeral curse.
