Well I

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

saw the how

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

many Mina most Nene

00:00:22--> 00:01:03

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who either early he also be a woman whether humblebrag Welcome to another q&a and today inshallah Allah will do a rapid fire again, if you recall from the previous q&a So we do that once in a while, I basically do one question for the entire lesson and once in a while we try to maximize so today we're going to try to squeeze in as many as many questions as possible inshallah to Allah will begin brother Ahmed from the Bay Area, emails in California mashallah Tabata Cola, and he asks that how to perform sage that is, sir, who how to perform the prostration of forgetfulness. The response to this because it's rapid fire, we're going

00:01:03--> 00:01:41

to be doing this very quickly do realize that this topic is one that you will find the vast spectrum of opinion amongst the various methods, and each method has a specific way of doing it, but you're emailing me I will give you a simple method, with the caveat that if you want to follow strictly a method, then you should ask your particular scholar of the madhhab what I'm telling you is basically one of the main mature or famous positions of the humbly method and it is one that my own. One of my teachers wrote an entire treaties on this, and he combined all the evidences and this is what I'm presenting to. So this is one opinion out of many, how does one do such that A Sir Who are the

00:01:41--> 00:02:20

prostrations of forgetfulness now when is it done? The frustration of forgetfulness is done when you for in one of three reasons. Okay, so one of three things. Number one, you forgot something that is a wajib. So if you forget a sunnah there is no says that. So right? If you forget to recite a surah, after Fattah hanos says this, so if you forget a rochen, okay, then you need to go back and do that record that you cannot research this. So if you forget a wajib, accidentally, so for example, sitting down in the second Raka, out of three or four cars, instead of sitting down, you stood up, or when you went into search there and your mind was preoccupied, and you didn't say Subhan, Allah,

00:02:20--> 00:02:53

Allah, and you just wanted to search the then you went back up, then you realize, oh, I forgot to say subhanallah Bella Bella. So number one, if you forget to watch it, okay, you can make it a procedure. So number two, when you add something that you should not have added, when you increase when you do something you should not do. So for example, you did a record, you went back up, and then you accidentally did another record, then you're like, Oh, I already did the record. But okay, you've done the record. So you did two records per record, or you did a search there. And then again, your mind is preoccupied, you did the second stage, then you did the third is such that,

00:02:53--> 00:03:34

okay? Or, for example, you know, you prayed for a cat. And instead of, you know, sitting down on the fourth, you stood up, and you're like, oh, and you finish the fifth record. So you added an entire record, then you realize, oh, I added a car. So the second scenario is when you add something that you should not have added. And the third scenario is when you are confused about how many records you have prayed. So you're in the third Rukka? Or the second and you're confused, is this the second? Or the third? Or is this the third or the fourth? And you don't know, you really are an unsure. So you know, what do you do in that case, you choose the lesser of the two that is if you

00:03:34--> 00:04:08

are totally unsure if you think about it, and then you say, Oh no, this is the third record. And I'm fairly confident it's the third record. Okay, if you are pretty much it's called halibuts avant, if you're pretty certain that it is the third record, then you go with it and you ignore the the minor doubt, but if you're, you know, very uncertain, or you're totally uncertain, in this case, you will pray based upon the lower of the two. So if you're doubting between three and four, you will assume it's the third and then you will pray as if it's the third, you will add a fourth and then you will do search that itself. So to summarize, you do search that the Soho which is two semesters of

00:04:08--> 00:04:24

forgetfulness in one of three scenarios, number one, you forget to watch you have accidentally you will not forget to watch him intentionally whereas the prayer is invalid number two, you add something that you should not have added to the Salah. So, you add an extra car you add an extra

00:04:25--> 00:04:50

record an extra sujood and number three that you are confused and that confusion remains all the way to the end. Now, another difference of opinion comes about when does one do the search that is so who do you do it after that this name or before the test name and again you know all of them others have their position. So again, you know, feel free to you know, ask a particular scholar but again, if you're asking me what you are doing, obviously emailing me in this case

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

the the the search that the so who is going to be done if you are confused or if you have a

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

If you are confused, or if you have forgotten something, okay, in these two cases that says there is done before the Tasleem so if you're confused between three and four, or if you missed a wajib so you didn't sit down for the second Raka and you stood up okay, you forgot a wajib in one of the in both of these situations, you will continue to the end, you're sitting for the to hear, then before you finish the Salah, you will do two sets, there's immediately Allahu Akbar go down back, Allahu Akbar, go down back to and then you will not repeat the to hear and the Salat upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, and you will then just do the slim. So if you are confused about the number

00:05:44--> 00:05:57

of recart or if you forgot a word you've accidentally, then you do to search this before that asleep, if you have added and by the way, this is based on the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that

00:05:58--> 00:06:48

the Prophet system once prayed Zohar. And he stood up in the second Raka. And he did not sit down, and all the people stood up with him. And when they sat down for the fourth Raka, they the prophecies and went into surgery twice, and then he did this limb. So the people did says the twice and did the slim. So this shows that he stood up in the second rocker, and he did not sit down. And that is a wajib to do that. And because he missed her watch him accidentally. So he did says that too. So In another Hadith as well, a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if one of you is in doubt about his salah, and he doesn't know how much he has prayed three or four, then get rid of the

00:06:48--> 00:07:27

doubt and base what you have upon certainty, and then perform two sets does before you do to sleep, perform two sets those before you do to sleep. So get rid of the doubt, and base it uncertainty, which of the two is more certain, which is going to be the lower of the two numbers, right? So a three out of four three, ascertain so for is uncertain. So you go under three, you ignore the four and then you finish and then you do two stages. As for if you have added this happen once in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he prayed vorher accidentally to look at. And when he said to slim, he turned around, and everybody you know, did not know what to do. Some people

00:07:27--> 00:08:09

thought that the salah had been shortened to two. So one person stood up and said, O Messenger of Allah, have you? Did you make a mistake? Or was it an error? Did you forget or is Salah to go now to Raka? Okay, so the process will confirm did I pray to Roca? And they said yes. So he said I am a person like the rest of you. I forget, like you forget. So he literally explained I am a human being and I forget like you forget and he then stood up and he made to record and he did that asleep then he made to sedge does at the end. And then he did the slim Okay, so in this case, he did this stage this after the Tasneem and this shows us that when you add something more and in this case, you know

00:08:09--> 00:08:45

he there was also a gap between the two and the two. And so he added the slim at the end of the first time he then he prayed the two or a cat and he did search that is so so the bottom line that there are a diversity of opinions. And really the main point is that the search that he's done for one of three reasons as long as you remember that to be very pedantic and and technical like if you do it all of them before and Charlotte will be accepted by Allah and if you forget which one the point is you do says that the cell who what do you do before the test team after the test team that's really where a lot of difference of opinion comes amongst the format hubs. But don't worry

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

about this. Just follow it is easy for you. You've asked a scholar, this is the position that you know I've told you to do and stick with it unless and until you study more and Allah azza wa jal knows best.

00:08:56--> 00:09:41

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

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

or the response to this is that mashallah Tabata Allah? It's a good question. And it's a question that shows the eagerness of our sister that she wants to continuously do vicar and realize that the Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, that you're living in harmony with the Quran Allah the Quran, Kathy Ra. Oh,

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

You who believe remember Allah subhanho wa Taala frequently with good Allah the Quran Kathira remember Allah subhanho wa Taala frequently was a beautiful book written well I'll see that and praise Him morning and evening. And Allah subhana wa Tada also says in the Quran without getting Allah Kathy run with that karate and those who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala frequently and those few men and women who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala frequently so Allah commands us in the Quran to remember Allah frequently, and we should try our best to remember Allah azza wa jal as much as possible. And and the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, who was seldom said, when a man came to him and

00:10:41--> 00:11:22

said, What do you advise me to do? The Prophet says salam said, that constantly move your tongue in the remembrance of Allah. In another Hadith, an elderly man came and said, O Messenger of Allah, I am too weak to pray and fast like the rest of your young Sahaba. So tell me something that I can do that I can get to their level. And so the Prophet says, and held on to his tongue, and he said, I Lika We decree law, I command you to constantly do dhikr of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala and are the Hadith coatsy famously remarks as well, that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and in the one near Alba dB, that I am, as my servant thinks of me, and if my servant thinks of me in a gathering, then I will

00:11:22--> 00:12:04

think of him in a gathering. And if my servant thinks of me, in himself, then I will think of him in myself and the Hadith goes on. So the point being, the more that you do dhikr of Allah azza wa jal, the more closer you will be to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, your question was twofold. Number one can I do they could in any state, the response is, yes, by unanimous consensus and hamdulillah there is no controversy whatsoever. All of the scholars have said you may do the Dhikr of Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah stuff for Allah, Allah Ilaha illa Allah, which is not the Quranic recitation, you may do vicar of Allah and dua to Allah in the state of voodoo. And if you have broken your will

00:12:04--> 00:12:47

do, and if you are in the state of Janab. And if you're in the state of menses, it does not matter, vicar of Allah can be done and should be done in every single state. And Allah mentions in the Quran Alladhina yo the Quran Allah heracleum Anwar Kuru then why Allah you know, by him they do dhikr of Allah, standing, sitting and lying down, and the indication is in every state you will do dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I show the Allahu anha remarked can enable Use of Allahu alayhi wa sallam yet Corolla, Allah Cooley here and he, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would do vicar of Allah subhanho wa taala. In each and every instance in every state that he was in, he would do

00:12:47--> 00:13:04

vicar of Allah Jalla Jalla who, so you don't have to be in any particular state or face any direction or do any preconditions. zikr can be done and should be done in each and every state. Now, there is only one scenario

00:13:06--> 00:13:47

in which it is discouraged to do vicar, and that will be out loud when you're in the restroom. Okay, that in this point in time that it would not be appropriate because it is not the place of doing vicar with the tongue. But even then, it is permissible to remember Allah consciously in your head and not physically with your tongue, or crema or the Nkrumah, the famous student of the sahaba. He said, or he would not do dhikr of Allah with his tongue. But he said that when I'm in the restaurant, I will do the call with my colleague. Well, I can be called busy, he said, so the famous Tabori he remarked that when you're in the restaurant, don't do that with your tongue. But with your

00:13:47--> 00:14:27

colleague, if a thought comes in, you praise Allah for that thought. If you think of a blessing, whatever you may think, in your mind of something, and that's fine, but not of the tongue at that point in time. Now, you the second part of your question is that must I be in a state of consciousness like who? Sure because the Quran is we know should be recited in the state of who Sure. And we should be paying attention as much as possible. And I have a longer q&a About that you can listen to that. Listen to that, as for vicar, as for vicar, you do not need to be in a state of who short it can be a habit and you shall be rewarded for the habit. However, the degree of reward

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

and the efficiency and the quality of the reward will be dependent about the quality of your intention. So you shall get rewarded. If you are accustomed to doing vicar in any state, you know, you're in the shopping center, and you're just used to saying Subhan, Allah Alhamdulillah and if you just say that you will get dhikr for the agile and reward for that habit. And Allah will bless you and Baraka will come down, but there is no question that if you said Subhan Allah and it came from the heart and you meant it, and you wanted to exalt Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no question

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

that takes her to a whole different level of reward and a for sure. And that's not the same as somebody who is simply habitually saying Subhanallah well hamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, and the one who says it habitually, is far far better than the one who never says it at all. So make it a habit because that is the stepping stone that is the stepping stone to make it a habit with who sure because it's levels right and you're not going to get to the highest level immediately. So the first level is you, you train yourself to constantly do vicar of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada you train yourself to remember Allah wherever you are, and to praise Allah and the best

00:15:41--> 00:16:22

praises that you can do are for Subhan Allah will hamdulillah wa la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar. These are the four that you should ingratiate in your life make it a part and parcel every step you take, you know every breath if possible, right every free time that you have just say these accounts. If you want to add something, say hola, hola, hola, Kota. illa biLlah and also start asking the stock for Allah. And you know, Robin attina, for dunya has an hour after so you can add up or not just make two hours. So your whole day and your whole evening when you're awake. It is constantly full of zikr and this is one of the most powerful mechanisms to be saved from the

00:16:22--> 00:16:38

punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith and was named by Muhammad, nothing saves people more from Jahannam than the vicar of Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's a beautiful question. And I hope that in sha Allah, Allah that has been answered.

00:16:40--> 00:17:25

We have a question from Sister Danielle from Austria mashallah Tabata kala she emails, and she says that she has converted to Islam Alhamdulillah. However, she has not told anyone of her family of her conversion. And she is worried about the reaction. And the question is about the fact that she is not wearing the hijab, and she is worried about the repercussions of the hijab. And the fact that she's wearing it is going to bring repercussions and the question is the fact that she's not wearing it is bringing her stress so much so so long email that she says that she is very stressed out, she's crying, she's fearful of Jahannam and of Allah's punishment, she thinks that her conversion is

00:17:25--> 00:18:09

not it's pointless, and it will not be accepted because she is not, you know, dressing with the hijab. Dear sister in Islam, Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, Allah azza wa jal has guided you to Islam, Allah has blessed you with the Calima Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen you out of billions and billions of people to be guided to this faith in a land where Muslims are very, very few in number, small percentage, and in a land where Islamophobia is on the rise. Austria is the land where Hitler came from, and the Neo Nazis are on the rise there and the parliament is trying to enact things that are very Islamophobic by the way, most of you are probably not aware of this, but Austria is one of

00:18:09--> 00:18:47

the most Islamophobic places in terms of the government, right? Obviously, the people are the people in terms of the government, it is very, very difficult over there, you know, probably just one notch less than France, France is as we know, in terms of Europe and the Western world. There is no competition France is in its own category, it has waged war against the ultra symbols of Islam and against the religion of Islam and therefore against practicing Muslims. Right after that would be in my humble opinion, Austria and I could be wrong in that specific analysis. But Austria is an Islamophobic by and large, the government right now the current government, it is highly

00:18:47--> 00:19:26

Islamophobic and the far right parties are rising and there is a lot of tension and in this environment, our sister mashallah Tabata Kola has Allah has guided her to Islam in that environment. But she is worried about you know, the fact that she has kept it hidden. Now as for the fact that it is hidden, I have a much longer q&a and I have gone into details. No problem. You don't have to tell anybody if it's going to be problematic. Allah azza wa jal knows you are a Muslim. You have said the Kalima in private and you are I'm assuming, you know, practicing to the best of your level in terms of Salah and in terms of other things, whatever you're able to do without causing harm to yourself.

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

So Alhamdulillah Allah has guided you to Islam, and that is a blessing that is so huge and so magnificent, and so blessing that every other sin after it is trivial compared to the blessings of being upon Islam. So realize, dear sister in Islam, that yes, indeed modest clothing is something that we should definitely strive for, and it is a part and parcel of our Shetty. And there is no denying that the default is that men should be covered in a specific manner to a specific area of the body and women as well.

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

Should you be covered as much as possible and included in that is, of course, the head covering which is called the hijab and and the entire body in a modest or loose manner. And this is something that really there's no difference of opinion on. However, dear sister, the obligation is the general rule, the obligation is the general rule, there are a number of things you need to take into account first and foremost, by the way, just to be technical here. Indeed, it is obligatory, but the oblique obligation of the hijab for example, or of dressing modestly, for example, with loose whatnot, it is not to the same level as the obligation of accepting Islam, which is far more important or of

00:20:39--> 00:21:22

praying or of Salah or of charity, the two are not there is no comparison between them, and the the the blessings of Salah and of Zakah and FCM. And the power of these rituals to forgive all sins, it is something that is well known, so do not compare, you know, apples and oranges in this regard, no doubt, the hijab and overall modestly, dressing men and women it is something that is a part and parcel of our city. But even in the Medina and phase, the rulings of the hijab came down in the fifth year of the hijra, one of the last of the major rulings to come down after all of the other rulings came down, then that ruling came down, also realized, dear sister, that the Sharia has come

00:21:22--> 00:22:04

with a beautiful reality of taking our circumstances into account, you see, it is one thing to speak in generals. And that's true, generally speaking, such and such as obligatory, but you see, the Shediac is also taking into account the specifics of your situation, and therefore your situation, you know best how difficult it is, I do not know the details of your situation, is there a genuine fear for your safety? Is there? Are you living with your parents, and if you were to publicly announce the embracing and wear the hijab, they would kick you out to you might be on the streets? Or is there physical danger, if if the danger is such that it is to your persona, or to your

00:22:04--> 00:22:47

necessary livelihood, or to your basic well being, in this case, it constitutes $1 Euro, and you're wearing of the hijab would actually then be exempt from you. So the general rule would be lifted up from you, and you are absolutely sinless in that case. And again, only you know best whether it is to that level or not, I do not know from the question. So do not make the *ty out more difficult. Our Lord is forgiving, and our Lord is merciful. And our Lord understands that you are a young lady, having embraced Islam, in a strange land in a foreign land, you know, very few Muslims are there. And the struggles for you in terms of your livelihood, or in terms of the far right or in terms of

00:22:47--> 00:23:30

your parents or whatnot, might be too much for you to bear. So if that is the case, and you know best, then it would not be obligatory on you if there is a threat to your persona, to your sanity to your living a regular normal life that most people live. Now, suppose it's not to that level, suppose it goes down a notch. Suppose that, you know, some doors might be shut, but others will be open. Suppose that people will stare at you, but there is no physical danger. So again, in this case, therefore, the default ruling would still apply, which is that it is it is obligatory, and you should strive your best to do it. Nonetheless, dear sister, that in case you do find that this is

00:23:30--> 00:24:09

not something that you're able to meet, and this is something that you're falling short of then realize that this is a sin, and all of us are sinners. And the solution to sinning is not to give up hope the solution to a sin is not to be despair, and to just say oh Allah is never going to forgive me. The solution is to work on what you can do and increase that and the solution is to ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to make what you're not doing possible for you to do and to give you the strength and the courage to do that. And as you're in that interim, continue to do the good that you're doing, dear sister, your prayer to Allah subhana wa Tada is infinitely more powerful and more

00:24:09--> 00:24:49

important than you wearing the the the veil and of course wearing the veil is important not saying it's not but increase your prayer, increase your Quran, increase your charity, increase your purity of the heart, and if you're not able to wear the headscarf because of you know the difficulties of the land, then at least try to be modest in your clothing as much as possible. And if it just requires a courage and you know, fortitude and work your way bit by bit, incrementally aim that inshallah one day I'm going to do it and get help from other sisters right get help from local communities. There are massages in Austria, there's some major massage that as you're wearing there

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

are you know thriving they're obviously minority in the largest like in most western lands, but they are there so connect with them get help and tips from them about what can be done to battle the islamophobe

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

will be or the far right and what not. And in the meantime dear sister do not despair of Allah's mercy, your email, really? It was a very emotional email that you feel that you know you're not your Islam is in vain. Oh the villa Sister, you have accepted Islam Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah you're not going to be perfect and you have to accept that because none of us is perfect. I'm not perfect. No human being is perfect. So if you put it in your mind that if I'm not perfect Allah azza wa jal will not forgive me. That is an incorrect perception. Dear sister, Allah forgives all of us because He is the forgiving, and Allah wants to see the effort. And Allah wants to see the sincerity and

00:25:41--> 00:26:23

Allah recognizes that we are all going to fall short. So do as much good as you can seek Allah's forgiveness for what you cannot do, and continue to strive to better yourself, dear sister, none of us is perfect, but as long as we believe in Allah, and as long as we lower our heads to Allah subhanho wa taala. And as long as we recognize that we are sinful, and there is no salvation for us, other than by turning to Allah and seeking his is to fall, and we try to be better, we aim to be better than a Hamdulillah. We are upon good and we can hope and we should hope and we must hope for the Mercy of Allah Jalla Jalla Allahu, so I hope that this answers your question. And once again,

00:26:23--> 00:26:32

congratulations, Millbrook for having accepted this beautiful faith and welcome to the global brotherhood and sisterhood of the religion of Islam.

00:26:35--> 00:26:55

Our next question, Sister Didion from UK from England emails, and asks the procedure for reciting the Salah in the silent prayers. And she says What does that mean to recite silently? And that does one need to recite with that weed?

00:26:56--> 00:27:06

And does one need to pause between each and every verse? Is it obligatory to pause between each and every verse? So this question

00:27:07--> 00:27:33

it deals with the issue of the silence Allah as we're all aware that an alpha is a silent Salah and obviously the last struck as a mother live in Asia and the Sunnah and the Nuffield, these are silent salah. Now, a lot of people they misunderstand what does it mean that the Salah is silent, and they unfortunately make the very, very, you know major error, it is a huge error of keeping their mouth shut. And

00:27:34--> 00:28:14

imagining Surah Al Fatiha imagining sluiten AirFloss and nothing moves. And they're just standing there. And in their heads, they're saying that hamdulillah Abram in their heads, that is actually not a recitation. Now if Allah Rama said if ALLAH is forgiven, what they didn't know, but technically the Salah is not valid, technically, Allah you if you didn't know Allah is gonna forgive you. But from now on now that you've heard this response, never ever just stand there silently when you are praying, you know, if you're behind the Imam, then there's a controversy to recite or not, but if you're alone, if you're the one, you know, leading the side, I mean, you know, praying on

00:28:14--> 00:28:45

your own, the silent prayer means that you recite in a manner that the person next to you doesn't hear. Now, what is the minimal level of being silent? Our scholars mentioned, the minimal level is that your tongue and your lips move with the pronunciation and with the expulsion of air, but so silently that even the one next to you might not hear what you are saying. Okay, so I mean, if I were to do this, you will not hear it with a microphone.

00:28:49--> 00:29:33

Like that. Okay, I'm reciting, if somebody were to be standing right here, they might just hear Rahman and then Maliki they might hear that they cannot hear the whole thing. Okay. That is the minimal level of being silent that air is coming out and your tongue and your mouth are verbalizing the the words but it is so soft that even a person next to you cannot hear and then even better than this or higher than this as you do it basically in a whisper okay. And that is silence that's what is that is what is meant by the silent prayer. And the idea is that you recite in a manner that people around you can hear Alhamdulillah here or below the mean by the way, the fact that it is

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

Jehovah or Syria these are not our account or why don't you but and in case accidentally you you you forget or what not your Salah is valid so in case you recite you know mohareb Syria for example, you know, this is something that you're alone and you just recited the hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Rahim it's a Surya manner it's against the Sunnah, but it's not you haven't broken a watch if you haven't done something that the salah will be null and void but better than this

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

is to of course do the job idea from market of inertia and Fajr. And theory of course, so accidentally if you said Al Hamdulillah Bill Adam in Doha out loud, your Salah is not bolted, it's sooner, so to be a city and God, the point being that the she asked the proper way, and so it must be enunciated and we know this as well, because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite insalata Zohar and salata, lacer and people in the first row, if they listened carefully, they could hear a phrase or two and know what Surah that he recited. Okay, so the fact that people in the first row that's four feet behind, can just barely pick up what is being said, illustrates that the

00:30:42--> 00:31:25

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite Syria in a way that even three feet away or phrases hurt, okay and that's the meaning of being silent. Now, you said about the rules of Tajweed and pausing between the verses. No, it is not obligatory to do that. And if you do not do that, then your Salah is completely acceptable and pausing between the verses actually is not even something that needs to be done in the fourth Salah as footage we those who noted with in Nigeria Salah must definitely utilize it if you do not know the rules of Tajweed then you are exempt or forgiven, but in this area, you do not have to, you know perfect the rules of the jury. Of course if you do so it

00:31:25--> 00:31:39

is better for you and you do not have to pause after every verse you can say Alhamdulillah Allah Allah mineral Hammond Rahimi molecule Medina kava, we are going to say of course, it's not good, you're going quickly, but the Salah is still accepted and valid and Allah azza wa jal knows best.

00:31:41--> 00:32:21

We have a question from Pakistan nasira emails, and says that she has now an elderly lady in her 60s, she says, and she says that she looks back at her life and feels that she has wronged specific people in her youth, she has memories that she has done things she should not have done. But those people are no longer a part of her life. She has repented for the wrongs, but she doesn't know where they are, she cannot locate them. She doesn't know their current status. So the question is, how can I make up for the wrongs that I have done to people that are no longer a part of my life? Okay.

00:32:23--> 00:32:31

You know, this is again, a very, very good question. It shows Inshallah, to Allah, that our sister is

00:32:32--> 00:33:06

genuinely repenting to Allah, she is feeling guilty about, you know, whatever she has done, we do not know. But But again, the point is, is generic for all of us, you know, we've all done things to people that we should not have done. And some of those people are still in our lives, and some of them are no longer in our lives, either through death, or in this case, looter literally has been, what, 3040 years, and she has no clue where they are, she might have said something or done something we've all you know, been in there. So now she is asking what can be done and this is a very good question. And in fact, it shows us you know, sincere desire, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:33:06--> 00:33:50

wa sallam said, that men can are in the home of lemma Tolyatti, whoever has done bounnam to his brother, okay, whether it is from his honor, or whether it is by taking his property that he should not have done failure to Hull who let him resolve that volume, before the day will come, when there shall be no gold and silver, but rather, there shall only be good deeds, and the good deeds will be given in accordance with the amount of volume that he has done. And so the person will continue to give his good deeds and if he runs out of good deeds, then the other person's bad deeds will be transferred to the first person Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim. This is a very terrifying Hadith,

00:33:50--> 00:34:32

because what it shows, what it shows is that, on the Day of Judgment, on the Day of Judgment, those people that have done wrong, they shall be held accountable by ALLAH SubhanA wa taala, and they will have to make up for the wrongs that they have done. And that's why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, get rid of any wrongdoings make them Halal in this world before the next world. So every single one of us should think long and hard, who have I unintentionally hurt? Who have I done something to that they might be able to say something on the Day of Judgment against me. And once that person comes to our mind, if they're in our lives are still alive, we should go to them now

00:34:32--> 00:34:59

what can we do if we go to them? The best thing to do and the safest thing to do is to literally come up to them and apologize and say, My dearest brother or sister in Islam, I did something I shouldn't have done. You know, Can you forgive me for the sake of Allah and Allah will reward you for that forgiveness, okay. And that's the ideal, and if he does this, and of course, why should the other brother do it because he wants Allah's reward. So when he forgives, Allah will forgive him when he forgives.

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

And he might put a condition. I mean, if he knows what he's done, he might put a finish say, Look, you know, you said some things about me, you need to go in and correct what you said, or you, you know, did this and that. So he might put a reasonable condition and then you know, you should fulfill that condition if it is reasonable and, and pertinent to what you have done. If you have direct access, our sister says, she no longer has access, what do you do another scenario, you might have access, but the person doesn't know. And if you were to inform the person, it would actually be even more problematic. And it would bring a whole scenario of Oh, my God, why did you do this and

00:35:35--> 00:36:04

this, and it might even make situations worse, suppose few years have passed, and you said something that was backbiting and you shouldn't have done that, right. And, or something worse, even and the person doesn't know and things are fine. If you were to go tell them you are worried your friendship, your brotherhood and sisterhood will be broken. And you want to make up both of these scenarios, right? Number one, you don't know the person where he is. And number two, you don't want to inform the person because they're going to make matters worse, there are a number of things that you can do.

00:36:05--> 00:36:52

First thing you can do is you guesstimate guesstimate, a monetary value for the penalty that you have done, okay? Guesstimate a monetary value for the damage that you have done, given the gravity of your crime, and also the amount of money that you have, because the person who has a million dollars, and the person who has $10,000 is not the same. If they give $100 Each, right, you know, what's going to pinch you that's going to be equivalent to the amount of harm that you've done. So given the harm that you've done, and given your socio economic status, okay, put the two together and make in your own mind, because you have to answer to Allah is something you are being you're

00:36:52--> 00:37:37

being your own judge and jury and executioner in this regard, you have to give enough such that you can say to Allah in a clear conscience on the Day of Judgment, Oh Allah, I did such and such. And I know I did wrong, you know, so I have given you know, $100 sadaqa, for the reward to go to him, so that I'm not going to get to $100. But the harm that I have done is going to be equalized by this $100. Right. Now, again, you will set the price, because, you know, in your own mind, roughly making a value, like you know, I think this much has sent out of $100 will be worth the damage of my car three, so then you've counterbalanced it and then you and then you will give that charity, that's

00:37:37--> 00:38:12

one thing that you can do. Another thing oh, by the way, this is by the way, assuming that you have backbiting backbiting him or something, if you have actually stolen some money, or you have something in your possession that you should not have, in this case, you must get rid of it, it's not yours, you took it incorrectly, and you give it to charity. So that's another thing that if you are physically in possession of an item or ownership of an item through them, then you need to get rid of that item because it is not yours, and expect the reward to go to the person but you still have to do more because you that's not your item in the first place you took it if I'm just giving

00:38:12--> 00:38:53

an example. So the next thing you do is that you give a financial penalty on top of if you have that item, you know, get rid of it for charity, you have to give your own charity from your wealth. Now pinch yourself that hey, I shouldn't have done that. And this is for his sake. That's the second thing you can do. The third thing you can do is to make dua for that person. Okay? Make dua for that person, raise your hands up to Allah subhanho wa Taala and say, Oh Allah, bless him with more money, Oh ALLAH forgive his sins, Oh Allah, give him good, you know, family, whatever it might be. And continue to make dua until you feel that you have done enough to make up for the harm that you did.

00:38:53--> 00:39:26

And once again, you will yourself will be judge, jury and executioner. Okay, you will take into account yourself how much damage you've done, and then say, You know what, that means I should make you know, at least 50 times do out for him. Okay, so whatever I've done at least 50 times I'm going to raise my hands and by name thinking of him, and make dua sincerely so that on the Day of Judgment, you know, this person will come and he will see the wrong that you've done, and he will see all of the DUA and your DUA he will be more than the wrong he can't say anything, he cannot say anything because look, he has made up you know, in the eyes of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And then

00:39:26--> 00:40:00

the last thing that you can do is sincerely sincerely raise your hands to Allah and ask His forgiveness as well. Because you have also wronged yourself in the eyes of Allah by doing something you should not have done. So if you are sincere, and you genuinely turn to Allah for forgiveness, right? And you have returned an item or given it away that you took unjustly and you give financial penalty that you think is enough, and you make dua for the person that insha Allah Who to Allah, all of this put together in sha Allah Who to Allah will free you from any liability.

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

The tip on the day of judgment if you are sincere and Allah subhanaw taala knows best.

00:40:08--> 00:40:53

Next question, brother Nicolas from Geneva, mashallah Tabata cola. And by the way, just so happened that I think all the questions today, except for the first one of California are from overseas, brother Nicolas from Geneva, Switzerland, emails and says that he has converted to Islam, and that he watches our shows regularly from a channel. And may Allah bless you and hamdulillah very happy that you're watching all the way from Geneva. And his question is that he is working in a company in a particular position sales or whatever, where it is the custom, that he is gifted from his company or other companies, he is gifted lots of gift items. And as a part of his position, sometimes he is

00:40:53--> 00:41:19

gifted things that are haram, such as sausage or such as wine. And he says that, you know, he is a convert, so he has plenty of, you know, non Muslim friends, even siblings, can he pass those haram merchandise on to them without any selling, but just simply give it to them to benefit from because he is not going to? to to to partake of that.

00:41:21--> 00:42:04

Brother Nicolas, you ask a very good question. This is supposed to be rapid round at the same time. This is a question that is a bit technical, believe it or not. And there are two opinions on this issue amongst the classical oedema amongst the early Middle hip. And so just FYI, very quickly, I'll try to summarize them. The issue comes really it's a very technical issue. And that is that our non Muslims also obliged to follow the laws of the Sharia, or are they exempt from the laws of the Sharia right? In other words, are they going to be punished for not obeying the laws of the Sharia? In which case, then there is no way that you can help them in that punishment? Or are they absolved

00:42:04--> 00:42:51

from the minutia? They are not mocha left is the technical term by the laws of the Sharia. Okay, so this is the solely controversy that goes back to early Islam. And the majority position, the Shaeffer is called the humbly school in the Maliki school, they say that non Muslims are indeed obligated to follow the details of the law. And therefore, generally speaking, they would say that it is not allowed in any way fashion or form for any Muslim to in any, you know, means, make it convenient for the non Muslim to do something that will be haram in our own Sharia. And there is no question that that is the better and the safer opinion, the other school of law, the Hanafi school,

00:42:51--> 00:43:32

they said that non Muslims are not obliged to follow the minutiae of our Sharia, they are not obliged to follow the details of the law. And therefore, they are a bit more lacks in some of these areas of allowing Musa non Muslims to benefit from that which might be haram for us. Now, as for the majority opinion, again, there's lots of evidences for this, Allah says in the Quran Wella to our know, underneath me with Earth, one do not cooperate together to do any sin or to any unjust injustice. And if it is a sin for us, it's a sin for others, so we should not cooperate. So that position would be that we should simply destroy the wine and throw away you know, the sausage or

00:43:32--> 00:44:13

pork and you know, get rid of the silk or whatever it might be, and do nothing of this regard. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in the light Allah haram obey Allah how many will make it he will consider what our SNAM Allah has forbidden the selling of alcohol and of dead animals and of pig and of idols. Now, your question was not about selling your question was about simply passing it on. And the point being that the majority would argue that just like we're not allowed to sell and get the money so to we would not be allowed to gift it that was that's what they would say that we're not allowed to sell. We're not out to gift as well. And in fact, there is an authentic hadith

00:44:13--> 00:44:53

in this regard reported in a mama who was Muslim than others, now are different even Abbas, that a man believe it or not, this is a shocking Hadith to most Muslims where they hear it, a man gifted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sealed canister of alcohol Hummer, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Do you not know that Allah has made it haram? The man said no, he was a new Muslim. Okay, he was a new Muslim he didn't know any better coming from whatever is law faraway place and he wants to give something expensive. So he brings a bottle of wine right or any kohlrabi and even not a bottle not a glass obviously but you know, a canister of wine. Can you believe you know, somebody

00:44:53--> 00:45:00

gifted the Prophet system you know canister of wine, because he didn't know any better The man didn't know. So the process the first thing the President said do

00:45:00--> 00:45:40

You know that it is haram Do you not know? And then I said, No, I didn't. So he's forgiven because he doesn't know any better. Now, another man whispered in his ear something, the person said, What did you whisper to him? And the man said, I told him that, you know, he cannot give to two buddies, you should, you should sell it right. In other words, the other the second man, whoever he was, we don't know his name. He's basically trying to get him out of an awkward situation and saying, look, take your gift back and just go sell it. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when Allah has forbidden its drinking, he has forbidden it's selling as well. Okay, beautiful Hadith, the same

00:45:40--> 00:46:22

being who made the drinking of it haram has made the selling of it. Haram. Okay. And so when the man heard this, he took the bottle, opened it up and just poured it into the street. Okay, Hollis, I'm not gonna have anything to do with this. And there is no question to your brother, that that is the default and the better and the pure of the ruling, just get rid of it. Do not do anything with it. That having been said Do realize there is a dissenting Madhav out there and is the Hanafi madhhab. And they actually do have you know, some evidence for this. And for example, in the famous Hadith inside Wuhan, yes, I'm Muslim, that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gifted honorable hotdog

00:46:22--> 00:46:41

silk. And he's Omar said, I mean, how can I wear jewelry he said, I didn't give it to you to wear. It's not meant for you to wear. So Omar could have gifted it to his wives. Instead, he decided to gift it to his Mushrik brother in Makkah, that hadith in Bukhari and Muslim okay. Now, this hadith

00:46:43--> 00:47:32

has been interpreted in many different ways. But it is it is clear to many scholars that are whatever hubbub understood, I can't wear silk, but my brother's a non Muslim, he can wear silk, so I might as well give it to him. So he gifted it to his brother as a non Muslim. And even Tamia also remarked that it is permissible to gift silk to a non Muslim, even if the Muslim herself cannot wear it. So, based upon this, they derived that the non Muslim is not obliged to follow the details of the Sharia. And so, some scholars would have allowed you or would allow you to pass on the material that is not allowed for you to non Muslims, and of the evidences that are mentioned as well is in

00:47:32--> 00:48:14

the in the early book of aborted middle class in Islam, the book of Anwar the book of money, where he has an interesting narration that honorable Hapa was collecting the, the hot rod, which is a type of special tax that is collected from the non Muslims. And they gave him a pig. And they gave him wine, they had a lot of merchandise. And so he's getting the hot rod, which is a type of tax, I mean, again, not taxed at the taxation system of earliest Islamic sharia is very different. But there's something let's, for our sake, call it a type of tax, let's just call it for our sake. And so they gave him bottles of wine, and pork, you know, so that's what they had. And they gave him as

00:48:14--> 00:48:57

the state to collect taxes. So the person in charge came back to Orlando for Tom and said, they gave this Yeah, what do I do now? I mean, this is Hummer and this is pig. So the Bob said, Go back and tell them to sell the wine and the pork and then give us the money. Okay, now here, if a Muslim had given wind and poor credit, nobody's gonna say go sell it, and then give us the money. It's haram for the Muslim to do. But Omar Abdullah, Hassan Rouhani Allah one, yeah. And he basically said to, you know, that community that hey, look, we cannot accept that, but you guys do it. And so he benefited, you know, from the the monetary for the, you know, the Treasury, but he didn't take the

00:48:57--> 00:49:39

actual substances. And again, the point being here, once again, that non Muslims can do what we cannot do, and we're allowed to just you know, not you know, in basically facilitate, where they told them do this and then they did it right. And Ibn Taymiyyah remarks on this incident that will harder Saboten and number of the Allah one will who Amantha will imati and this is well known, and it is confirmed from Omar and it is the position of the famous scholars. Okay. So based on, you know, these types of, of narrations, one group of scholars did say, and oh, by the way, there's another argument that is used, which is an interesting argument, and that is that a Muslim man

00:49:39--> 00:50:00

married to a Kitabi lady, a Jewish or Christian lady, that it is understood that the lady was going to go shopping with his money, and it is understood that she's going to purchase things that are haram for him, but halal for her, and especially in early Christianity and the Catholic Church till our days they drink wine as a part of their rituals. Right. And therefore, this group of Rolla,

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

argued that you know the husband's does not is not able to stop his wife that's her right that she's going to have wine even in the house and she's going to be drinking for her rituals and when even is halal for her to drink otherwise meaning from her Sharia perspective right not in our Sharia and it would not and and again there is a great area like some of the scholars are stricter and they would say that she should not buy from his money and she should buy from and there are opinions even this and then the counter responses, well no, if he's the husband then he has to maintain her basic daily routine and if her Christian ritual state that she must drink you know that copy because again the

00:50:34--> 00:51:10

Christian rituals, the Catholic rituals, they do have the consecration of the wine so again, this is a gray area and one group of scholars did say that you know, the, the Christian lady is going to or the Jewish lady is going to be purchasing haram under the umbrella of the husband literally using the credit card of the husband and metaphorically and so this indicates that non Muslims you know, we can basically turn the other way and if you follow that paradigm, then that group of scholars would say that you can just pass on the stuff you know and

00:51:11--> 00:51:54

you don't have to You're not allowed to obviously eat or drink have anything that is haram or anything haram but if you give it to others of the non Muslims, the your your siblings or your roommates for example now, what I would advise you to do definitely follow the majority position and get rid of it. That having been said if you have like roommates for example, and in that note here also by the way, my position is that you cannot compare silk with pork with alcohol These are three separate you know, levels of of Herma if you'd like to have him three separate levels of evil and the evils of alcohol are the worst and there is no question that you should not in my opinion this

00:51:54--> 00:52:32

is the least that can be said it is strongly discouraged if not outright haram which I'm very sympathetic to and the jury position that you cannot give somebody alcohol right however, silk the level of the Hareem of silk is not the same. And so Omar gifting his brother silk right? It indicates that you know, silk is something much easier to deal with right? And as for pork it is in between the two if your roommate you know, sees it and eats it and he knows you don't you're not going to eat it you know? Yeah, honey, you okay? You didn't you know, push the plate in his direction or you turn a blind eye Inshallah, then I can see where you're coming from in that regard.

00:52:32--> 00:53:10

But definitely dearest brother, when it comes to alcohol, simply get rid of it, you know, pour it down, do not aid other people in the drinking of alcohol in any way, fashion or form. Definitely that is something that should be avoided because Allah has cursed Hummer and everything to do with Hummer. So we don't want to get involved with that whatsoever and ask for the other items that you get that are not alcohol. Yeah, and it is much easier to follow an Omari position if you get my drift here are the hola Juan and if you were to follow the majority, it is safer for you and Allah azza wa jal knows, best. Our final question for today.

00:53:11--> 00:53:56

Sayed Ahmed from Malaysia writes and he says that he has heard conflicting reports about dyeing the hair for men, dyeing the hair for men. What is my opinion about this issue? So dyeing the hair with henna, or with other natural dyes that don't imitate your natural hair color now, the Hadith mentions black and the books of filth mentioned black because the black color of hair was the default color for the Middle East. And so when the books of filth mentioned black is the controversy, what they mean is the hair that you naturally have so if your hair is already yellow or you know blonde or red or you know whatever it is, then the controversy would come can you use a dye

00:53:56--> 00:54:41

that is matching your original hair color henna, which is reddish in nature, you know that it's not your skin color, you know, not your hair color. So it is sunnah to dye the hair with henna or with other natural dyes that are clearly not the original color of your hair. Our Prophet system would regularly dye his beard with henna. And we're also familiar with the fact that you know the Shetty does say that during times of you know, war and confrontation that definitely the army should look powerful and young and whatever that takes dyeing your hair. That's also something that is good. The question though is outside of those situations, is it permissible for a man in particular to dye

00:54:41--> 00:54:58

your hair or your your beard black meaning the color that it originally is if your if your hair color is black and the reason why there's a controversy is because of a famous Hadith and incident of the Sierra that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam greeted the father of Abu Bakr.

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

Ivanova Kochava

00:55:00--> 00:55:47

up, and he said to a vocal Hoffa, that the he said to a vocal Hoffa when he saw him his hair was completely white. He said to the people in the entourage that take him back and change the white, but avoid black, which then a boo a squad avoid black now, based on this, which is an authentic hadith, that's where this color is different. Is that avoidance for a particular reason? Or is it unconditional? Is that avoidance obligatory or is it recommended to avoid? Okay, all of these are controversies and again because this is the short ground I'll just quickly go over that you have three opinions in this regard. The shaft for the school was the strictest and if you're from

00:55:47--> 00:56:22

Malaysia, I'm assuming you're following the shaft very school. The shaft for your school said that it is haram for a man to dye his beard or his hair. Black even if it's outside of any just don't do that. The majority position which is the Hanafi, the Maliki and the humbly school, they said that it is not haram but it is better to avoid it as mcru You're not sinful. As long as everybody said there's no deception of the deception here really comes that, you know, the scholars given the primary example this is before the ages of ideas and knowing your birthdays and whatnot. When you go and propose, right? You are judged on your outer appearance. And your age is basically derived from

00:56:22--> 00:56:57

your looks. So if you're 60 years old, and you pretend you're 35 Okay, this is a type of deceit nowadays, by the way you it's almost impossible to do because there's IDs and birthdays and whatnot. But my point being back in those days, you know, there was this notion of deception you hide your date, you hide your age by your appearance. Clearly, any deceit in the Shediac is not allowed men Hashana Felice. I mean, whoever deceives us is not ours. Whoever cheats us is not others. Suppose there's no cheating. Suppose you just want to do it for the sake of you know, looking, You're more handsome looking younger, you're already married or you're not looking to get married or whatever it

00:56:57--> 00:57:39

might be. So the Shafi said It is haram, the Hanafi Maliki isn't humbly said that it is not haram, but it's better to avoid this mcru You know, in Macomb means it's really, some said it is strong mcru. But the majority said it is mcru meaning you are not sinful. By Macura. I'm not meaning to trivialize. I'm simply saying you are not sinful, but they discouraged it. They said it's better not to do and a third opinion said that it is completely permissible MOBA there is not even cassava in it. And they based this on the fact that many of the Sahaba and Tabby rune It is reported that they would dye their hair black Ibaka yam reports in his adult Muhammad Ibrahim says Saha and it has

00:57:39--> 00:58:16

enabled Hussaini Radi Allahu Anhu Ummah and now Houma can to Burnaby salad. It is authentically narrated that the two grandsons of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hassan and Hussain, they would dye their beards with black and seidelman Abi Waqqas would die his beard with black this is reported in a robot on the side him who caused the famous action over Chara, he would dye His beard was black. So if it was something that the Sahaba thought to be haram, they wouldn't go public and everybody's seeing it nobody's making in Cairo or saying no to them. So Insha Allah, Allah Luciani Allah knows best but you know, it's not it's not haram, we're also Sahaba would not have done it.

00:58:16--> 00:58:59
