Imam Ibrahim Bakeer Asks Shaykh Dr.
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Nabina Muhammad in wa ala early he was so happy he urged mine, my dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. This is a member here in am of IC in EV. Today I am so excited and happy and delighted to meet with Professor areas of Kali in his message epic Masjid to ask him some questions. I call it like spicy questions and critical questions and everyone is wondering about the answers and even the tourists are answered about many of these questions but today I want to clearly to listen to the views of the tour Yes sir. Call me woman
nanny Mina, most naming welcome Victoria, said Omar was the law chef and every time you come into my city and you want to mashallah interview me interrogate me well hamdulillah phobia when Yama I appreciate these and I hope I shall do the respite and benefit in these types of conversations. Just in the last last interview a lot of people they hamdulillah benefited from your views and many people they knew you more and they even start following your videos because it was clear for them your answers that I
was just to be clear, this is something you want to be done. And these questions are very high assess but no follow each other whatever you guys wanted. We have 10 questions, the five questions, aka the questions or RP that matters insha Allah and five questions with the few key issues and matters with the Lightoller first let me start with the first question with Victorious or something about al Qaeda Shekinah nowadays, many people in many different places they have different archives. For example, this is a very rocky that affair. Yes, sir. Yeah, there is a rocky that Russia? Yeah, there is an uphill battle with the idea that there will lead you and all these groups of people.
How could we reach to one concept that everyone feels okay with others, when, first of all, what is the most accurate Arcada? Then how to deal with those who have different archives. So this topic is actually one that requires far more time than a quick q&a. And I've actually given 300 bucks last year about dealing with sectarianism. So I encourage the viewers to watch that in more detail. It literally is called and how do we deal with sectarian differences is three hotbeds and I went into a whole hour I talked about it in a broad sense, hold are sort of Oceania is that the most important thing that I play the of the Quran is number one, that there is one Hollier converted there is one
Creator and God that is worthy of worship La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, number two that this Harlock sends messengers for our hedaya and number three is backed by the mote these three things are essential to be Muslim belief in one God one Creator, one deity worthy of worship, belief in the prophets and messengers and belief in the back by the mouth and and Jana and not an hisab if you look at the Quran, every single page without exception mentions all three or one or two of these three, you will not find a single page of the whole Quran except that these concepts constantly are brought forth. So we as Muslims need to concentrate on what the Quran concentrates actually, to be
honest, no island from all these mme talk about what you said all of them talk about the differences. So so my issue is we begin with what the Quran begins with. And we emphasize what the Quran emphasizes. And if a person believes in the basics of Quranic theology, which is what I've just explained, and hamdulillah he's a Muslim, or she's a Muslim, and insha Allah to Allah there, there is hope for them in the hereafter. Now, as for the developed QA, that that came in the second third fourth century and continued to be developed and continues still in our times. So these are all tools that are meant to extrapolate, they're meant to understand just like muda if you're here
are tools to extrapolate the *tier Allah did not reveal the Hanafi madhhab the Shafi madhhab the Maliki might have the vahidi madhhab the humble you might have Allah did not reveal the muda him Allah revealed a book and sent a messenger and scholars wanted to understand the Sharia and So Al Hamdulillah ALLAH blessed us with many aroma and these aroma brought forth many modahaus and some of them are you know, more mainstream than others but and if you couldn't find Inshallah, which might have that we have to follow. So, the mazahub do not dictate one salvation in the akhira nobody can say have to follow, somebody says has to follow he has to say Allah has obligated and Allah did not
obligate us to follow up with him. A lot obligated us to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to obey Allah Azza wa
Right, so we obey Allah and we obey the messenger mattock, also of Rasulullah Hodo woman, vento. So these muda Hapeville here are tools. We should not make the tools the goals, okay? Let the same goes from it I have an idea. Let me go right away with the point like what they say they have a differences in the last mile was that my question is what the prophets of Allah said about a smell whatsoever? Yeah. And for example, Lucia in Harlequin Illa water, what the prophets Allah says, about this area, which has a big killer between Martha Zilla between the law Sharia between atheria and some of them they make others careful because of the interpretation of the law. So it's so
important and Theda, why the prophets have not interpret all this is exactly what she's talking about.
If you were to play, as they say, the devil's advocate of the angels advocates, each group is going to say they're going to quote you their evidence and say it is clear the process they're meant to go that way. So they will bring you their evidences. But in the end of the day, our Prophet sallallahu wasallam is talking about Allah subhanho wa Taala and the language that is befitting Allah, what did he mean by these Rifat is something that every group is going to read in their interpretation. So the authorities will say he meant this and the shadow was a human, this and the martyrs it was a human this, all of them would feel when they're in agreement, that they want to follow what the
processes are followed in this agreement, they have saved themselves from the punishment of Allah subhanho wa taala. Being salty, that is so important. So why the Prophet did not say the accurate meaning of all these AI without meanings like just Yeah, so there's two ways to respond to this. The first way if you are a follower of one of these strands of any Methodism, a shot isn't materialism, their response will be he did. And they will give you their evidences, but their evidence is are their interpretations of what the process and I've said it's not the process of did not say is the one means this, he did not say this. Yeah, but every group is going to read in, for example, the
Hadith and Newzoo are Hadith animoji, or Hadith or Surah, wherever they might say, you're jumping to an issue that in my humble opinion, I've spoken about this in my library, which is in my humble opinion, this issue is not an issue that we should divide the over. And all of the fear of that our mainstream all of these that you mentioned all of them. They believe that Allah azza wa jal is a highly local burial. MUSAWAH Rahmani Raheem and medical produce. All of them believe lace, they're committed to a che nothing is like him, all of them believe Limbrick a local forehead. And so this belief is Alhamdulillah salvation or the first question they ask and I'm gonna ask you this
question. Please share that. Where is Allah? Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah when we all of us know that. Allah will this issue Scheffer again, we could spend hours talking about this, and maybe one day I will give a longer timeline, the fitrah and the simplistic answer the average Muslim if they say that Allah azza wa jal is above us, this is a correct.
Now here we go. Now, again, you're getting to the semantics, here's the issue Shekinah, you're trying to describe
an entity a being that is different from existence, in a language that isn't existed language. So language falls short of describing that which is beyond language, language falls short of describing the entity have taken and even the other day say this, that they say, We understand the meaning in one sense, but we don't understand the cave, even the earth that is in the habit and the surface, they are saying the word we know but the K fee, or we don't know, this is, in reality, all of the groups, all of them are saying how clear cut that how clear cut, I'll say that we don't understand it. If they all agree in this, then why are they fighting over it? So my whole point is, and I say
this bluntly, I say this very bluntly, this issue was exaggerated more than it needed to be. And all of them want to feel whole and that Allah is way ahead, and Allah is a Rahmani Raheem and Allah is worthy of worship and Allah, here's our two hours. So what is the similar to the filler? What difference does it make? Did the Octavia have the one who believes this make him a better Muslim? And the one who believes that? Did he stop praying tahajjud in reality, the differences between these alkaloid were made bigger than they need to be. And we in our times need to understand that we have far bigger issues then how do you understand the Zool? And how do you understand sdwa The
Samaras will laugh, right? The the benefit of this type of discourse is minimal. And we need to be blunt about this. So look me I don't so I don't, I don't really bother myself with the Muslim who is within mainstream Islam, which
understanding he follows I'm more concerned is this person avoiding the Cabal? Is this person praying five times a day is this person of good o'clock this is much more important and as for these fall seal of the SIFAT of Allah subhanaw taala there is very little summer of this fell off and cooler has been developed and further on every group is forced to make its own opinions more important than it really is not just I wanted to explain something here or when I'm asking Victoria said I'm representing the opposition like the opponents of Schiff Yes, or just I'm representing the views, it's not mine, but sometimes you will find me ask maybe not good questions, but just I'm
trying to represent others view for some of them, they knew that I'm gonna to no problem. And I want to say one more thing before the next question. And that is that next question, we still in this
ask you when someone asks you, Chef, yes, yes. Where is Allah what you have to say? For sama? Allah Sama, if you follow the Quranic terminology, there's nothing
Okay? In Allah for some What do you think about so this hadith isn't a Muslim, it's something that interpretation of it, as
the fitrah of every even the non Muslim when they make dua, they will look up but everybody understands in our times when you look up you don't mean in the three dimensional up because the Earth is round even
have you given Tamia himself says that the Earth is round. And what is up for us is down for the people on top of the earth, this earth. So the 40 year is the IDF bijela And Allah the transcendence of Allah and Allah is above was transcendent. Well, there is a feat for summer the only be 30 No, no, not nobody. Nobody says that Allah azza wa jal is inside the creation No, but they said Allah for summer because you're here to learn Alomar Why don't you say which is? So?
Maybe I did not understand this what you were saying? You've been telling me I've interviewed him a lot. I understood that this summer here means that he is above the heavens, right? He's not inside of the heavens and he has his evidence there. So but now he uses images as well. So you are saying with jazz and he will say it's not Magi. So in reality show and I'm trying to be condensed and it's a very long topic.
This is as usual gonna get me into trouble but frankly, the whole issue of Where's Allah subhanho wa Taala it is more healthy than hell of how quickly I'm saying this bluntly and I know it's gonna get me into trouble. Because this is not what Rossi says. orientalia says they both make a very big deal about Yanni we don't describe Allah with the jihad and Allah is full. And in reality the both of them are worshipping Allah in the same manner and the both of them are reading the Quran and praying to God and being righteous and pious for Kanima the and the one that says Allah is FIS sama but we don't know the K fear. In reality, this is exactly what the other one who says Allah is not for
Sama, because this would mean cada Okada so that what the one is affirming is actually conceptually the same as what the other is affirming, right? Because no one says no authority no humbly no even to me a follower actually says for sama Beeminder in the three dimensional coordinates he's literally above us. If we have x y z axis, literally he is this way nobody says this because they understand but che called Islamically Tamia Rahim Allah, Allah Allah helfen and Allah ageless Helen Cozzi. livelli cometa humbled to see him What do you think? No, he did not say yes this actually I know this for a fact he did not see what this is not even to me. This is an up some of the hand
I will call the yard and others they will use these traditions.
Even Taymiyah did not say the show and I kid I know this. It's not even to me, this is we and others use these phrasings and this isn't me It says that we should only use what the Quran uses. And the Quran uses is the adult also we live it is the one that will love and millions Allah. Yeah, so NASA Hoonah be managed.
Service. Again, check we're going into all of these facilities. And in my humble opinion, this type of discourse is not beneficial because no but they are judging others based on this. This monster promises the promises what I'm talking about both sides are mistaken. Yes, in how much they exaggerate this issue. Because no, none of these groups is actually a stop for Allah. disrespecting Allah azza wa jal, none of these groups, every one of them wants to make Talim of Allah, that Nia is what is we look at right? And this whole controversy should not divide the Ummah the way that it has divided the ummah. Yes, but
question number two actually went from the most difficult questions not for Muslims only for even those who do not believe in Allah be think about this question that soil Cowdery will Jeopardy and Korea will Jeopardy.
Do people have free will
or just people have little say,
Jani jabariya that are much boring to make some. So again, Sharon Marshall, your questions are very amused very deep, very philosophical and we are in a quick q&a round. And it is very difficult to give justice to this answer. And in fact I have not even given a very long topic in this because even determinism or do you believe in this simplistic notion, Aslan itself is mistaken, this simplistic notion of either this or that she has no kidding, in my humble opinion, the issue of other and predestination and the realm of Allah and the mercy of Allah and the Rada of Allah. This issue is something that our limited minds will never be able to fully comprehend. Our finite minds
can never understand the infinity of Allah's Qudra and Haluk and power. And it is a mistake to assume that we will be able to understand who exactly are we to imagine that our akal is going to understand the Quran and the rhythm of Allah azza wa jal so we, the less we think about this, and in fact, in our Sunni tradition, there's a very interesting Hadith and Sunnah nativity, that the only time according to our Sunni tradition, the Sahaba had an empty love over al Qaeda in the time of the process and was over this issue of Qatar. In sunnah Timothy has narrated that some of the Sahaba began speaking you know that the Quran seems to suggest the type of free will and other said but the
Quran seems to also suggest that you know, there is no free will and according to the Hadith the process and came out the animal hemorrhoid which his face was angry and read, and he goes behind the mirror, it does I commend you to do this, to try to find the Quran ziani fighting each other or not fighting each other by using verses of the Quran against each other. Right, but he said also co Lucia in Maktoum Allinson chakra you and I'm sorry. So the question here is just so let me ask you the question. And I'm gonna say the question itself is flawed law, not flawed. I'm asking a regular question. Millions of people are asking it, it's regular tuition.
Wow, that was yes. Do Allah Subhana Allah this old did Allah subhana wa Taala write upon us what we're going to do or no. So, again, if you want a simplistic answer for a very deep question, and this is the problem
Allah azza wa jal had, by virtue of the fact that he is highly Mohib I learned well who you know, must know everything. What about his Willie chef? Let me finish he must know everything now. If he does not know that are with the villa, this is done to your sphere in Mila and that's why even the more Tesla did not negate Allah Xin now even the more Tesla so no Muslim who prays five times a day Yanni Hokianga when us your neighbors, no fear kala no felucca right? Yes, you can even see another but no felucca No. Denied Allah zone. Okay. J THEY LAUGH comes that does Allah's mushiya overcome our mushiya Yeah, this is this is okay, this is another issue. Let us go to a machine I will, will
in order to be timeframe, or timeframe, I'm going to answer in a different way. I believe it is not possible for our minds and our language to understand this reality. Therefore, what we should do is affirm Allah is all powerful, affirm, Allah is all knowledgeable, affirm that nothing happens without his knowledge and mushy and Quadra we affirm that you have clear law, and we live our lives as if we have free will. But what matters are guna insha Allah how to explain this. So it's very easy to explain in the sense of the Quran because Limon Shia, I'm in Cambodia, struggling, Allah affirms a mushiya. Now, Allah Azza, just as you have a mushiya, then Allah azza wa jal makes it
contingent, but you cannot not reach if we cannot reach to the realm of Allah or the Kuder of Allah or the mushiya of Allah and we cannot even explain it or we cannot imagine it, why he himself talks about it, because it's always done in the context of praising Allah's Magnificence and Allah has power it is never done to tell us don't do anything because you cannot do anything and x. The Quran always tells us airmen who will hold their MaryLu right? And Allah tells us to pray and Allah tells us to fast the entire Quran has
written us what we're going to tell
them so when you're rah, rah, no, firm, firm to affirm Allah's power and to therefore submit to Allah's Magnificence without affecting our actions. The Quran is full of action based verbs. So there's what I'm trying to say is to be very simple
ballistic and again, this is a quick q&a. So I know you only the critics can always deconstruct everything but I have to say something that comes across as contradictory. We affirm Allah's Omnipotence Allah is all powerful Allah is mushiya is Nafi that we affirm all of this, and we live our lives as if we have free will without understanding. No, we affirm, reach to the understand, we affirm Allah's Magnificence, we know and but when but we don't know what is written for our data to worship. So again, this is my not my talk, but I'm bringing even Campbell Medina and if you see people or whatever, they ask you this question and if you do not know Allah, because now you said,
we cannot imagine how Allah is written everything upon us, and we also should do what color men officer Allah Maluku, but the question here is coming that how could you worship someone? Which is Allah subhanaw taala. And you don't know
the simple question the simplest equation in the world. So, Allah has written everything upon us, why do we have to make the why do we have to worship he written upon us will we be in Jannah or hellfire? Why do we have to very simple as long as to this you do not know what is written. So you are so you assume what is written is what you want me to ask you in different ways if
being that Allah has written you will be in Jannah or or Hellfire will arugula. Why he is punishing you and he written before you come that you will be among Hellfire people or Jana people J So this question has been asked since the beginning of time, before Islam now and it was asked in the in the time and it believes himself is making a thrall of Allah azza wa jal that will Allah Rob baby may await any IBLEES himself any tangible color he used other to justify what he had done, you're the one who did this or you set it up basically, it was already flawed from the beginning. And at some level of why Allah is punishing a police the love is the question this is themselves. I'm asking the
question that why he is punishing a police and he written upon a please he will be disobeying Allah so is the question so this why he's punishing je non believers and he has written upon them, they will be in unbelievers before even begin this again. Sure. You're asking mashallah very philosophical questions. And this q&a has 10 questions. And they have given actually a not just an entire lecture, I've written a paper about this topic, every single felucca from the mortadella to the maturity to HR to the attendees has a response to this every felucca, but I'm being honest with you, every one of their responses, it will not satisfy the philosopher it will not satisfy even
symbole. So nobody so we are deterministic people. That's it. No, I don't believe this at all. LX LX know that to say that we are in jeopardy. Yes. Or no, you wrote in everything on you? Yes. And you don't know how to fix the problem? Or how to answer the question. No, we don't know what is written. We don't have even free will to think about the answer of the question. Darwin does not free will we don't have the we don't have the level of intelligence we don't have. We don't have this free will. If we are finite beings. Allah created us now use my father home use alone. Again, this is we have just unconventional, we have to we have to humble ourselves. We didn't choose our life we created
that we didn't choose the circumstances of our birth, we didn't choose the era. That means we didn't choose we are just so it's not a matter of Japanese. We thank Allah for existence. Don't choose to be born. You don't choose will you go gender or not? And you still not because because right now, the way you act is completely free will what you are seeing right now is coming from your free will. But that's why I'm saying so you don't allow the intellectual affirmation of Allah's majesty to affect your actions. You don't do this for your daily routine. You don't do this reading and drinking you don't do this for your job you don't have the spirit is only when it comes to the deen.
And when it comes to believing in Allah, do such people come and start saying oh, why should it worship Allah when Allah azza wa jal has written something when it comes to eating and drinking? They don't just sit there and say if Allah has what is going to jump into my mouth, right? So they selectively use this Troja when it comes to religiosity, and when it comes to Deen, they never are consistent if they were consistent for me now when I'm conveying the question, I'm asking about everything, even the food even eating and drink, so No buddy lives their life according to this philosophy. Only when it comes to today, human and religiosity and belief do they start bringing up
this agenda? Okay, because of the time Yeah, go ahead. So I want to conclude something. Yeah, the collusion is very simple. In my
in my humble opinion, we affirm Allah's majesty and we live our lives, as if we have complete free will. This is the solution of this problem, because you will never understand you need the assumption that you will be able to fully comprehend Khadir is the assumption that you will your reader will understand Allah's
If you are ill will understand Allah as. And this is a very arrogant assumption. Allah created us our ailments my dude, my code is very, I'm talking about the machine. So the same question was so simple, but you said that we cannot even think about it. I think we shut the Jeopardy people they said was the one who beat out and it's the same thing heartless we are in jeopardy in and we cannot and we have not we must not ask about this. And about these questions. So share.
The problem comes the other group brings a very valid point. And that is that to claim to claim that Allah has no control over the creation is really done to us. It is a it is a very, very disrespectful thing to say which actually is what I said. But no, it's actually eliminate.
Total Polycom being chosen. I don't agree with them. But
completely Allah does not create evil. Yes. If you make evil, you are the one who choose the Andes. I don't believe in that. Just I need another question. Another answer fixes the problem. So these issues should have been debated for 1000s of years on all of the federal and frankly, nobody has an answer that is a five minute long that convinces the mohale If you only convince your own group now, this is what I'm saying. You see right here and you see it yourself. That's this question is beyond the capability of the average person to understand really, you see this because you tell me we have 4000 years of recorded philosophical history. We have history beyond religion, we have the
philosophers who didn't believe in any religion. Nobody has solved this problem in a simplistic five minutes solution that people don't understand. So do you think that we can solve it right here it's not going to happen? The response Johanna is where there should be a level of humility that what can I understand what cannot understand? And we have to also deal with water you exist. You exist right here and now. Okay, what are you going to do with your existence? You have to think about who created me what is the purpose of existence what's going to happen after I
answer about this issue, it's so simple being that we cannot know and understand like with you said, choose your city or your your position, either you Maha you're like Martha Zilla Oreo Jabri like you know that oh my goodness, like yeah Bri Yamaha Giovanni acts like they're more or less the reality only when it comes to today you and they say oh, we're never much bull. But when it comes to everything else even the hardcore God lives his life like he's
just not I know the questions are so difficult and it's not easy to answer it in q&a sessions but let us go right away to the third question and answer the questions and nowadays start coming that can we make dua for non believers especially if they are humble and we are peaceful? Can we make the art for them? Can we pray for them and mark for our Rommels we can definitely pray for them when they're alive 110% No problem. We make dua for them Allah guides them and even something good in their life like if somebody doesn't have children may Allah bless you a child no provide some before in good life and so yeah, but again any right now let us speak with what the majority what was the
default position? The default position even within the most Chinese strict is that the art can be done in their lifetime for anything? Masala Dini and most Lucha dunya we are if the person Yes to help that no problem they give us a good person. Yeah, me I love this with good risk. What No, no problem. Now the issue comes after they pass away. Yeah. As you are aware, this is actually the case. Yeah. As you are aware, okay. So this, so the question is about that, okay. Okay. So as you are aware that the vast majority of folk AHA and rollem is not just one physical is the vast majority, they say that the one who dies in a state that is outside of Islam, we remain silent about
him. And we do not say whether he's going here or there we leave his affair to Allah subhanho wa taala. And we do not make dua the reason why they say this is because as you're aware, there are three verses in the Quran. And there's the incident in the life of the process, again, from Sunni sources because this she I don't believe in this, but the Sunni sources believe this that I will thought of passed away outside of Islam, and the process of wanting to make us therefore, as you're aware, this asset is found. This hadith is found in Bali, and in many of the books of the Sunnah, based upon this, pretty much Yanni the default position is that once the person has passed away, I
say the father of Islam, we remain quiet and we don't make dua for them. Now, I have a poll that is not against this, it is within it in sha Allah and even the critic insha Allah will not really find room for criticism, right? If somebody was to go beyond this that's upon them and let them take the criticism as for me, I have a hole that is Yanni insha. Allah there is some HTML here. We do not verbalize is still far for the kaffir but it is permissible for the purse
and whose family member whose loved one? Yeah and he was an innocent person who didn't he didn't Yeah, he wasn't rejected while in it he wasn't somebody who's I do like Abuja hello somebody any idea Roger it's permissible for that person to hope that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada will forgive that relative and this is based on the feeling with let's differentiate so the verbalization is explicit in the Quran. Let me talk with you know, so if you are free so you are free to let me finish I'll go ahead go and you are free to hold your view asking me Of course of course of course. You want my view? Yeah.
Says Intel Furlong interactive underwriter when toll free alone find Nick and tell as he's when I came here recently Are you sorry Sarah did not say Oh ALLAH forgive them being that he has boostability mo
diversity of Ibrahim as well right
now can I mean a Bali Yeah. So
I mean a Bali Yeah. Fela Mehta Bay and Allahu Allahu Allah with the
likes of Ben and salt in Montana. We want to welcome you holy Jonah Rasool Khanna, Maha ribbon calasparra meta
mask position that I've heard Can I mean a Bali in Italy? I mean, how can I fill it the Jade so I know a number of modern scholars are saying this opinion that's their opinion I'm not Yanni but model duckula Now can I mean not? So what should there be no cannabis says in the Quran. Nakata Kyriakos there has to be prohibited. It's
code. So Allah is saying to the process of them, you have a good role model and Ibrahim and all that he has done except when he said Oh ALLAH forgive my fault because Surah Sheena, it talks about Aloha Rabin
Jade So you are saying that this verse applies to Lahab Aloha Ebola and it does not apply to Abu Talib Now I will tell you by the way at Abu Talib has issues j so this is your opinion yes okay and you have the right to hold your but also
to which are using it to also listen to your view about it okay and my view okay my view the Muslim convert whose parents whose siblings whatever passed away and you know, there's loving that person we give him some hope. We give him some hope that you know, not verbally but say enable him in Surah Brahim, he said clearly now forget about it. Now can I'm not telling his father he was talking about his people are up in Atlanta. Kathy Romanus. From Entebbe Annie, for in the home in me woman ASAN for Inaka office. This isn't a specific model, we will what that mean for Indigo for right? It's telling me it's an issue. That's a
possibility, which I'm talking about. So allowing possibility. What did I just say he can hope? It's exactly what I said now, but Ibrahim did not say Oh my Lord forgive the idle word. He said Oh my Lord forgive my dad. He was misguided and Allah says don't follow him in this no he said for them to obey and Allahu Allah Allah Ibrahim Ali Abhi.
Don't do this okay, in Surah to television. So this is your test. We'll go to
the Toba so clear when Allah subhanaw taala said McKenna in Obi Wan Lavina
sort of double cola mystic Muharram Americana still photo Ibrahim Lea be ill and my worry that in whether you have LM TV and Allahu Allah who will alert about Rahman atabrine comes after a ladder why why are they
taking a promo holla for I'm just and you're using it to negate a explicit Yanni explicit commandment now that do not ask is too far for the machine. Not so your foreman. wahala is a lower status than electrical mojarra National Memorial Garden Minister fella who can call it Ibrahim Levy. Yeah, no stuffing it for Lebanon Can I mean? Your opinions? Yeah, yeah. Ask me my opinion. I don't think that you withhold, you have not problem. You don't have problem but we're verbally you haven't done it yet. And what is the difference between them? A big difference this is in your heart and then your hyperbola should be more hope, hope? Yes. In your heart that I might have been the
etymology and if you hope no feeling your heart as hope is thicker. Billa hope is your affirming. Oh, but Allah has forbidden you to verbalize.
What is the purpose of the shift from Allah to forbid us to verbalize it, but it's okay to feel it. What is the so if you're asking again, this position, as you're aware is 99.99% of the OMA you're aware that this is the default position of the the response will be very clear and that is there is an addendum that we have for those who
Believe in Allah subhana wa Tada and those who reject Allah, they don't deserve an outward Adam in this manner. No but Allah knows their fate because even Jani, the one who dies in the state of Cofer will even the most Jenny, you know?
Well, not everywhere I should say. Most of the ferok Say, it is possible for the one who did not know Islam did not know how to, you know to hate they don't know how to disarm Muhammad it is possible for them to be forgiven in the ocher this is something the vast majority been Tamia says this result is everybody says this right? But they also say but do not ask Allah to forgive them. tell you how do they make Jim have this very clear. The one is a hope the one and the other is swirl Adam. Because when you verbalize right, it's a type of curar that Locanda tool otherwise you're gonna Lemme lemme Ibrahim Juarez is clearly said If you forgive them, but but this is not explicit,
like I say again, the point here, which we're talking about the chief I do, Tom, I respect your view. But the point again, is, I don't have it like feel something but it's wrong to talk about it in a manner that comes with the feeling of unfairness. So again, the only Rp the feeling where I'm at, assess where I'm at any given the membership or hope something but don't say it what's the point here? I hope that we're saying this for it because the
most of our lemma and you'll know better than me most of the said that if your wife dies and you can just stop giving the money of the cuff and for the wife if she dies Jani I can bring you 1000s of opinions 90% of what Allah agreed about something and it's not a woman who said that all of them were agreeing about that. It could come as a political issues or something. Because it does not make sense Jade like I said, You're not the only one that says this, but any it's not the position I hold because I got lucky Shana. We're gonna continue Shala Okay, question number four. Alanna Shala? Roberto LCRC. The doctor yes are called the Victoria Sir, do Muslim should participate in politics
affairs politically do Muslim should participate is the first question. And here in America which group like let us say a Republican Democrats which group you prefer or which group you see that they will help actually Muslim people politically, J. So if you look at the seer of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he didn't make this distinction between political affairs versus social affairs, he wanted to effect change, he wanted to bring about positive change in every single way possible, sometimes the most effective way you only can verbally do. And other times the most effective when you go to the politicians and you negotiate with them, right. So you look at your situation. But to
say that Islam is not about politics, to say that Islam tells you to not get involved law, this is very incorrect. Islam is an entire system of living one's life. And a part of that living is how you interact with other people and how society functions. Even though we live in different country that a country does not actually practice to close you you affect change in whatever way is feasible. You affect as much change as you can, and the how you affect it. And the techniques and tools you use, will change from time to time and place to place. What the process have said and did in Medina, is not the same as what you could say and do in Makkah in terms of influencing politically, but he did
try to influence in every single modality. So to say that one should not get involved in politics. And this is a shift we are living now in America in western land. And they those who are criticizing you they said that we the democracy for them is cough is haram, that you cannot participate something haram this is what they believe. Yeah, I mean, this this type of statement or sentiment, frankly, it is a very small, narrow minded group, even mainstream selfies and the Obon. These and what are the Keep out of all of these end, what I would call fundamentalist movements, they give have clear fatwas, that as Muslim minority is you must protect your rights, you must have the
freedom to worship. And if that means lobbying the government if that means fighting for your rights politically, if that means going to congressmen or whatnot and making sure the right people are in office, then you must do that. So this notion that militia itself is okay with you. Of course, you must participate. Yeah. But the question is, to what level and to what level of compromise and I have given a longer online, so hold us It's overwhelming. I will say the in my humble opinion, rude Emma, do art. Michelle. It is not healthy for them to jump into the realm of CSR, because it corrupts the purity of their own. But there are people that are involved in CSR that the LMR should
have correct direct contact with. And I call them the soft pragmatists and the soft purists I have a much longer discussion about this, right. Because, see us. Politics is all
About the lesser of two evils is about compromise, it's about bringing about some, some group of people to affect change and in the process, you have to give and take, and a person who is upon
arraignment pulsera, and a person who's wanting to preach morality and the Truth cannot give and take the truth, you cannot compromise upon the hack, right. So, my assessment of the reality we live in, in the western world in the western lands, ruler, ma and Messiah should not be at the forefront of direct political activism, they should be one step behind, they should speak generically and they should encourage the right people and they should be in touch with the right people, but they should not in my humble opinion, lead this is my opinion, I could be wrong good, but this is my opinion, the reason why they should not lead is because when you jump into politics, by nature of the game
that is played you must compromise and when you compromise, then you are in is affected, your water is affected, your taqwa is affected. And I have been very blunt in this regard, I would not want you know, my brother, my student, my I would not want a person whose priority is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala, to corrupt that purity, by compromising on the dean and entering politics, but there will be people who will be entering politics, whether I want it or not. So there is hell, it is healthy for me, to be in touch with them, and to advise them and to tell them to choose the lesser of two evils, even if I myself don't want to be in their position. And it is healthy for us as a
community to see which of the two politicians is better for what we have in mind. Now, what do we have in mind, we have many things in mind. It's not just foreign policy. It's not just philosophy. That's one of them. It's not just but the Uighur situation. Suppose there's a politician, and the only whatever reason he's like I am against what the Chinese people are doing to the wiggers. Right. That's a very big positive. And why not? If there's no negatives against him, why not do it to support them say this is a politician? He's going to campaign he's going to lobby change is very slow in this regard. Right? I mean, sometimes even participation of politics sometimes will be like
an obligatory action, something without a doubt. I agree. And this actually, as I said, in my longer interview that I did, those of us who lived through 911, you know, 23 years of your life i Oh, yeah. Those of us who live through 911
This notion of participating in politics is haram and go for it was thrown out the window.
You had to get involved to fight for your rights. You had to stand up and say which this is done, my you can't take me to jail for no reason you cannot be rational.
Exactly. So those that were in alive at that time, right? The whole notion of politics, being hard on democracy being hard on it was out the window. Actually, interestingly, you are most of the issue, right? When the Arab Spring happened when the Arab Spring happened, and there was actual Korea for a little bit period of time about democracy, those same machines that said, democracy is Cofer. The same Michelle said, voting is now jihad.
Voting is now jihad. And they said I was wrong. 10 years ago, I didn't understand what is democracy now that I understand that you can you can elect a person who wants the Sharia you can like to prison Who feels alone, as mentioned, you can elect a person who is going to bring about a commune that is closer to good morality, how can you not get involved to get somebody who's closer to what you want. So the same Michelle, I don't want to mention names because I don't wanna embarrass but the same tejarat need that you're critical of the same tejarat that used to say the same trends that used to say that democracy is Cofer and participating. And voting is cool for that same shift a
number of them actually then change their minds and said, you know, what, going to the ballot and voting is now an obligatory action, follow the iron, and it is a jihad that is now needs to be done, because this is our modern jihad. So ovenproof the context taught to them, what they could not have understood from books. So we say to those Musharraf, they say democracy is over in the Senate, we say to them, that any common live amongst us, okay, see this reality amongst us. The second part of the question when it comes in America, let's talk about America. We have two groups of people, the politicians, either from Republicans, Republicans and Democrats, what do you prefer? Each one of
them has their pros and cons, and Muslims are neither Republican nor Democrats, we have our own masala and our own the facet. And we have to be very careful not to ally ourselves with any one party to the exclusion of the other, because neither party represents our interest in totality for sometimes
this Yes, exactly. And this is politics, Elissa Datacom. And you had the I had the right to see us it is exactly what politics is. We look at our Masada Himba fasted like every group does, and when our masala hymn of acid are better with one group
We will go with them for that issue, but our loyalties will not be to that group. And we have seen this in the last 10 years, right? We have seen this rock airline when it comes to Fela, hash and LGBT and all of this, we have seen that when the Muslims gravitated towards the left, and they went towards the Democratic Party, by and large, many of those Muslims, right, their loyalties came on to the Democratic Party rather than Allah and His messenger. And when the party went the way it went with transgender and this and that
no one knows them from 30. So so they have this open minded with everything, why by this question, we have to be with them when we need them. And we knew already that the ideal solution is to have our own partnership. We knew that the booklet party has this open minded for LGBT and all this stuff three decades before. And we knew that 20 years ago, when we wanted them, it's and we went and we ran to J S. And now when it comes to just we are okay now, and we don't need the more now we start criticizing Oh, you are open mind on these views. It's a criticism, it comes to us, to the fun to be clear, more than us the issue of context and level when our context was that our existence in
America is being existentially threatened. We're being told you're going to leave this country our musters are being shut down. Yeah, at that point in time, our priority comes the other, still believing this also as well? And for example, she Biden or Trump?
No, I don't I don't, I don't get involved in these specific names and let the people of the hospitals it's not my job to tell the people which one is better for the OMA, it's my job to teach the principles is my job to be very generic. And that's principles of democracy. I have
never, I have never endorsed a specific, I have never endorsed or fundraise for a specific candidate. I have never given a hotbed vote for this person versus that person. But we speak in generics, we speak that which better. So the rights or the left? Let's say this, I don't. At this point in time, honestly, neither has good luck at this point in what you're gonna do, you still participate. So So in my opinion, politics is more local than national, in my opinion, one of our biggest problems is we concentrate on the presidential elections, and we don't consider it on our local school board on the local person who's running for the City Council. The city councilman has
more impact on our message ID then our democratic any, you know, presidential last thing in this matter now, some of Republican people five years ago or something, the band, many Muslim people to even enter the country? Will some Muslim people now be go than they said, because of other party is taking us away from the, you know, the moderate views or something? Now, some people said, We're gonna vote for those who five years ago, banned a lot of Muslims to even enter the country? What do you think about this, so let us hope that we can influence these people from stopping this ban, because that is what is happening. The same Republican Party that hated us so much, many of them are
recognizing that we can help them in the fight for morality in the fight for family values. That's
why That's why so it depends on state to state Alhamdulillah. In some states, they need in some zones, zip codes, they need us without a doubt they need us in zip codes in New York country, you need the right to use us. So we use them. So two way street Shahana that's what politics how to use someone who does not need you or does not want you to be here. Yeah, but how to use someone who has the racism against you against your race. Again,
this goes back to the hustles that people always added the hustles those that are involved in politics, it's not me but we are supporting and LGBT and this is stuff not everybody here there are people amongst them, we know them I know them there are people amongst them fair than what they need. There are people that are involved in politics, they pray five times a day they are avoiding the cover or they have actually I cannot mention names as a manner they have come to me saying what can we say in this difficult issue? How do we phrase these things? You know, so there are people that have voted there are people and I would much rather these people who have some Eclass and some
Jonnie water and some taco they're worried I have people I cannot mention is very high level
phone me contact me reach me I really station mechanism. talk publicly about their asking I was asking me what is the phrasing that I don't have to be worried about on the Day of Judgment. This is shows there have Eman how shows the heavy man, the man but the hustles they cannot deliver their views to regular Muslim people. What about the regular Muslim people what they have to do? So they limit the election where they go to the right or the left? Regular Muslim people share? There is no way one answer will fit all the problems
No way do you cannot say to the Muslims vote right or left like you look at every election every office every person every single election at every level you look at and you then say masala hammer facet on this and on this and on this and you work your way from top to bottom. And even in this you will find if they laugh No, so be it. Good answer from chefmaster. Korea, sir. Okay, let us go with the last question in the RT the matter is actually about the music. And I think either music or dance Yeah, she was the way you made music into it. I will tell you why. Because some people they believe that if you love music, music you will raise then in fact in your heart. For sure it comes
with. I see what you're saying there. Okay. Yeah, music is difficult issue. But you are saying yeah, I make it with Alfie the issue because some people think and believe that if you listen, listen to the music much, you will raise an effect in your heart to Robin NIFA. So what do you think about that? No. So this is multiple issues. Now again?
The issue of music first of all, what do you mean by it music? Because even music has multiple do you mean?
Beautiful voice we talked about mahkumat. We talked about Dylaney? We talked about talking about this? I'm talking about tila? Okay, so now even a lot as you are aware, yeah, there is a distinction that has been made from the time of low when I'm talking about from, from the time of the tabular into whatever the distinction has been made between the sounds that come from hitting something, versus the sounds that come from blowing into something, this distinction comes from the earliest, and some would even say the sahaba. But for sure, without any doubt, this distinction is found in the Tibetan monks. And how we have so we have, so we have very clear distinctions from the past that
lots of people allowed that which you hit like a type of duff or a drum or something, and they were a hustle, they didn't find this to be that problematic, right? And this, it goes back to the fact actually, you can just do this and have the noise coming. So So what if you make it a little bit more than this? Right? So by and large, those instruments in which it's percussion, as they call it, it basically are hitting something. There's much more disarm or even from the past in this regard, and even very conservative, as you're aware, even the very conservative Obama say, Yes, it is allowed in.
Nick, or in other places, or what email or something or either?
I'm talking about? Yeah, no, I'm saying so. But that so I have to be careful, I have to clarify something we have to explain. So we're not talking about that. So then the issue comes in about what is called a wind instruments, right? Yeah, instruments tend to make a voice like this. And
this is how often this is very good wind and the wind.
somewhat like you doesn't even need with instrument, you just
JHF. So you're talking again, about an issue that transcends me and you it is beyond me a new it goes back to the very top your own and even Sahaba. And we find this back and forth. So Shekinah, if you notice any Alhamdulillah I have given 1000s and 1000s of electroni. Right, two minutes shift. So So notice this issue, I have not given a detailed lecture about Whoa, much I have not given a detailed lecture about okay, well, one day I will. But one of the reasons I haven't is because I find that it is difficult to hold a academic intellectual conversation about this topic. People are emotional. And when you're dealing with emotion, you cannot talk academics. And people have made up
their minds in a way that it becomes unreasonable to discuss your image, build your walls, yeah, and map it to him. And there is no middle ground. There's no Jonnie Do you have something in the middle? So without a doubt, Chanel can without a doubt, the music industry as it currently stands, is an industry of filth and fascia. This is you cannot deny this the music industry around the globe as the default as the awesome in this machine. The what is the music industry about it is about Xena, it is about haram relationships. It is about nakedness and videos of this manner suggestiveness lewdness. It is about all types of Shaohua and whatnot are hidden just the Music
The music I wanted to explain will not deny this that's that's fine. So when somebody comes in wants to say music is hella right. Yeah, they open your eyes and look at this reality How can you just make this blanket statement without looking at the Walker? No. Right? And then you'll have the opposite view is Oh, the music is haram and then they consider every single thing including sometimes added to Tallboy the percussion instruments without even thinking things through. So my position shaker
says that these types of these types of industries should not be encouraged. They should not be encouraged. And there's a reason why from the beginning of time, the people are very Antiqua the people of last resort and by the by and large, we did not find them involved in this type of industry. There's a reason you know, that reason is that these instruments, the least that you can say about that, forget the word haram and, and mcru right now, just the least you can say about them, these types of instruments, what they do is they, they bring about a level of desire or shadows or lust, right. And one wonders what is the father of bringing about that lust, when it's
happening in public when, and that is why from the beginning of time, these instruments are associated with nudity with women and men dancing from this is beyond any one culture. Think about this, the Hadith and the husband says this when he combined the Exactly, yes, yes.
Yeah, that's one interpretation. I'm not even getting there. I'm simply being factual here. Why is it that this industry in every civilization from the beginning of time is always associated with Homer? And with Xena and with women dancing and with nudity? Why? What is the relationship the relationship is we forget how ramen makuu these sounds will automatically you are flirting with your own show what you are provoking in a manner just like if you smell good food, your hunger is going to start going. So music to your shahada is like smelling the good food you know to your button for you so let's leave haram and whatnot. Let's just be factual now that what about if you take this
with your Halal with your wife Yeah, so now now with those who say for those who say that certain types of music are halal, I say to them Be very clear with these The Hobbit and they should nobody should say music is haram I don't agree with this simplicity simplicity both of them I don't agree okay. But actually your your view I can tell that in the middle and you if you say Halal you will say it but with conditions and terms with aspects and if you say haram also you will bring with also conditions and aspects is there he is up there
was a good answer Mashallah. Let us go Inshallah, to the 50 things Jollof. We'd like to Allah the sixth kitchen and seventh and the ninth and eighth and the ninth and 10th will be about a few key matters maybe later Allah. Let us go with the question number six. Question number six Shekinah will be about marriages and divorce, divorces affairs. Yeah, and in general Alima Alima. In general, they accept to have the divorce as a verbal divorce when you say antithetic that means she is divorce and we are not even writing the palot if you just say it, it will happen. But in the way of marriage, or marriages, they don't do that. First of all, I have two questions here. First of all, how the
Prophet and the SLM were getting marry and making divorce where are they writing the marriage contract? And from where the concept of marriages contracts? Come? I wanted to ask you this question. And then the second question, why secret marriage? It's not permissible. Like for 90% for multiple
Jade So with regards to marriages Tobon what is obligatory is not to write down no I've ever said you have to write down what is obligatory is that is it is hard or Shahidan. Maliki say the Sharia name has to be public and whatnot or two witnesses. So nobody does that. No, no. You have to write contract. Yeah.
But it happens in public. And there's two witnesses there that's the main point here. So no, no doubt to write it is better. Allah says in the Quran fact taboo, and every any grant, any contract is you should write it down. But what is obligatory Filton, from the Shediac perspective is that people witness it. I'm asking about the obligatory action. I'm asking about how the Prophet Salem and the Sahaba were getting married. There was a right right. They didn't write anything back. Why do people know the
marriages writing contracts which is encouraging and the Prophet did not obey the Quran because the writing itself was rare in that timeframe. As you're aware what we have was OMYA national property right here and now within his own line things why this stick is stay also, I can't say
that's the way they live their lives. They didn't have writing material they didn't have
Paper even Do you understand how difficult it is to write when your paper they would literally have to write on any aircraft? Now we have some minor stuff but people still think that you have to write it like written things. Teach them I mean, if any first class will tell you don't have to write it, but you have to witness there must be your view. Written the contract. It's not obligatory act. Nobody says could get married without writing it. Yeah. 100% Yes. Verbally will be okay. verbally with shoot. Yes. 100% 100%. Okay. Now, the question comes if you're living in an Islamic land with an Islamic system, right, I'm not talking about this should not the government should be aware there
is no Islamic land and I'm saying nobody I'm saying hypothetical. Yeah, I'm saying ideal that we are talking about dreams.
Muslim people 99% of why would they not accept marriages without a written contract? So this is healthy. Nothing wrong with that. Why we don't do it with the divorces? stuffs. Yeah. So the you're asking Chicago questions again, to be brutally honest, Chuck, I'm seeing now the questions you're asking. They are wanting to rethink through issues of fake and that's fine, no problem. But understand that this right doesn't belong to me or other people. This right this right is a very big issue.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala allows that without witnesses, and Allah allows marriage and conditions witnesses, this is something that all of the fuqaha accepted. No 40 ever said, by law needs to witnesses as far as I'm aware. No, * he said this. Every 40 said, That nigga has to have some type of your image hardly any publicity. So now, someone problematizes as you are problematizing this right? Look, I help you have the right to ask you have the right to question. I don't have the right to change the Sharia chakra. I don't have the right to change what the entirety of the OMA did while you're doing something the proven No, no, but share your
house, the source of the Sharia if the folk AHA now what? No. There's nothing wrong with writing the contract. There's a different there's nothing wrong with that, but being you will make it as an obligatory thing.
Yeah, I agree with you. I got surprised.
Another question that what about the secret marriage? Why also men are automatically prohibited? What is the point? And what is Hawk I Akasha? Russia hidden? Tricia, two witnesses is still a secret marriage. Yeah. So I believe secret marriages 99% of them are doomed to fail. And I believe secret marriages, even if they're done with all the conditions to witnesses, what not that 99% of the time, the woman will end up with a broken heart. And she will feel abused and she will feel taken advantage of and the man has gotten away with some enjoyment wishing he is if he's been miserable or no Sheree?
Yeah. If the conditions are met, I can condition is there two witnesses and two is harder two people
Or they say can I say conduit? Because then there's nobody involved? Any amount can be the one Yeah, okay. Yeah. With the Hanafi. School also the Hanafi. School if you follow the Hanafi school, secret marriages for you, it's permissible, but I will end up with Alma you call fie al Cara Alma. That's pretty much double ended of the day. I cannot make haram what Allah has made. Yeah, what is what I'm talking about. But
we just extremely strongly advise any person who should I'm not talking about advices. Just by this.
I have to I don't like this. It's permissible, not because there's there's certain adab that come. It's not just it's not just Helen and Helen, she asked me to ask you, and this is for the chef, not from me that he said Ask the curioso. Yes, call the professorial, so called the about his view about polygamy in America. What do you think? I believe it's only a matter of time before this will become legal. When they have allowed homosexuality, they have allowed same sex they have allowed transgender. It's only a matter of time where this will also become legal. And I'm waiting and I will look forward to that time. Why not? If this is something that all Abrahamic religions Judaism,
Christianity all allowed it from the beginning of time Islam allowed it in this constant load it also it comes in the way just went I in the Quran talks about it talks about your time about what do you think about this? Shall we have a problem in America, in many Muslim countries have extra qualified sisters that are single and few brothers that are single and qualified? While the same we have an overpopulation of women but it's the same concept of slavery, slavery also, they were it was permissible before because of the circumstance
is a lot of people they cannot feed themselves and water themselves when they say the Masters come to feed them and also slavery Allah did not end it but Allah subhanaw taala was encouraging people to end it it was like they cannot make the same with Allah has made halal if Allah has died did Halal okay I cannot make it haram but wait a minute this is not my view just am conveying you something that is the only area talks about polygamy it comes with the condition of orphaned or encrypted Allah toxic Ophelia Tamar Thank you Martha many love you for Allah I feel many la vida Allah federal Moon Jae In. So the issue of Vietnam being involved in to adult as you're aware that
in those times in places, if a second cousin's daughter's being raised by you, okay, and you know, you feel that okay, I'm gonna wait a minute, the orphan that time and that is the
orphan and woman, the orphan that you that you are responsible for, you're raising your household, it makes extended family. Yeah, it makes it in this first woman in general before, we did not have any kind of jobs. And literally, if they are not getting married, or if they're, if they did not have appearance, they're gonna die from hunger. Because of that people were getting married even from 100. The Quran comes to reduce it. And the Quran is specifically talking about the Atma, because your time at that time has two problems. The Orphan The Times has two problems, the problems that they don't have husbands and we don't have parents for literally the underlying and so their
status in marriage will go down in that society not because in that society, your nasib was the most important thing. So orphans automatically they are not prized possessions for marriage but now everything changes you know changes so what so I don't understand what are you trying to say? I'm trying to say I want to say
some some liberal views the dad is it's like slavery, slavery, Allah reduce it, Allah did not end it up. And but Allah reduce that time because it's impossible the time to ended. And Allah reduced the thing, the following mean, which is a giver, and also polygamy, it comes one time in the Quran. Under the conditions. I find this discussion more hypothetical and theoretical than realistic, because look at the reality of the Muslim situation. Now, who does that dude, even in the Middle East, even in Iraq, culture is Muslim? Few people will call you Luma. Home. And in the West, it's Would you would you look at me almost, you know, it's like any, it's the this is a theoretical issue
hypothetical. But I'm also pushing back a little bit here, and I'm saying qualified men, and qualified women, Jonnie alkyl. Men and alpha women, right? good men and good women, if you were to put them all together, realistically, the number of women that are good and qualified are much more than the number of men. What is the solution for this problem now, every society and community in America including ours here in Dallas, every city I go to, there are women who are mashallah intelligent, hard working whatnot, and they cannot find husbands. And there are not that case in Manhattan. However, if a man wants to get married, he just has to
be okay. No, he will this
woman, those who are like I say something very bluntly, this is again, as usual, get me into trouble. But it is the truth and truth is sometimes bitter. This issue of polygamy, us men need to stop talking about it. Stop talking about it no point in us, the women,
the women have to decide amongst themselves what they want to do. It's very simple. It's a woman issue. So a woman's issue that they need to decide amongst themselves, would they rather have because we have a problem in our in our communities, that we have a surplus of qualified sisters who are not getting married. And this country has now allowed all types of marriages. It's only a matter of time before it's going to allow polygamy. It's only a matter of time already. The Mormon Church is attempting, you know, the Mormons wanted believing
they wanted it. Yeah. So it's only a matter of time. And when that happens right now, okay, at least we can say it's against the law. But this you just leave it for a woman woman should do this, our viewers have to decide amongst themselves. Why? Because what is better for the overall Muslim half of the community? Will they allow qualify because what it is, as you pointed out, one of our problems is that men don't know how to practice polygamy properly, properly. And one of our problems is that our sisters don't want our men to practice polygamy. Those that are happily married, don't want their husbands to marry another, even if they're qualified financially, even if they have it.
Let's be honest here, right? They don't want them and they think this is a type of loan that is taking place. But the nativa or the reality, we have a societal problem. Of spinster
it any women that are not getting married, but you say now it's woman issue. That means you mean that before the men make polygamy or makes a plug in me he should take like permission from his own life because his own life is the way that modern society works. A marriage is not going to flourish. Our current marriages in the West, I'm not saying it's watching. But I'm saying you cannot expect a marriage to flourish, when a man is acting in a manner that is so
Yanni, not taking into account of the feelings of a wife and his life partner, the mother of his children, is that marriage is going to call us and then disaster. So there must be a cooperation, there must be a full and that's what I'm saying. It goes back to the women as well. So number one, men themselves frankly, don't act like real men in being fair, and then doing what Allah and His Messenger want them to do. And it being very clear that look, we want to take only a woman who doesn't have a husband, she might have children, widow, I want to help society, you want to do something for the sake of the Sharia or Yeah, Tama again, your teamer, she was at a disadvantage.
And that's why Allah is allowing the team to have Dagda because they a team or her value goes down when she's not coming from a high shadow fineness of she typically would not have wealth, you know, coming from an unknown family or whatever it might be. So Allah is encouraging those ladies who typically will not get you know, the best man that comes with the aterna. Not with everyone. Yeah. So, so let
we're different for men and women want to make the ability for you to stop them. I have not exact know. Exactly. So but just so that's my point, if a lady and I have met such ladies that today,
I have met a number of people in this situation that the lady said I want to do I want to find a husband. That's part time because I have a business I have. I don't want a full time husband. There are people like this right? She's 35 years old, 40 years old. 45 years old. She doesn't want full time husband, she wants part time has been saying and there might be a husband and wife like they don't have children. This lady can help them whatever it might be. Who are you to stop them shelter, right? So you're not so let people decide amongst themselves what I'm saying? It's woman issue, primarily. But also it's an issue because men don't act like men. They don't act like gentlemen.
They don't like like the prophets of setup. At least, they are not able to handle to adult men break under the pressure of that dude, no man should not talk about this issue. Nowadays. There is little thought either, and women should understand those women that are happily married now look around them and ask themselves if I was on the other side. And I was with that sister who's not married know what I want her to have some share of this or not know. So both men and women need to have conversations with their own genders. Not against each other. No, but they're gonna be against each other. We're gonna fight. Let us go with the question number seven with Yasser being that we have
this problem chef of marriages and divorces things and what do you think about masturbation? And many people the Ask the divorcing woman asking divorcing men they are asking as well. And what about also Mr. Patient for young women and young woman and so I just am not any self stimulation. I've given a whole lecture here at Epic you will find it on the website as well about cell stimulation called acetylcholine is that we find no evidence for him. It is something that is considered not noble, but something that is not noble doesn't become haram. And in the situation we are in Warszawa everywhere. What do you think about the ayah? Who says Allah Allah as Why do you know Monica so we
follow JM halfa Yeah, so to extrapolate this is to masturbation doesn't make sense because big Marylou Allama it is allowed to blame the ayah Allah subhanaw taala said, yeah, love you, normally Fujian, those who guard their private parts except with their wives, or with their right hand position. Is there anybody can you mean? So means those who guard the private parts from actual Xena from engagement in intercourse. As for self stimulation, be Iijima Allama. All the scholars agree. I'm sorry to be explicit. So I'm giving a disclaimer. If there's children watching it, they should not be watching this or whatnot. But it is allowed for the man to use the hand of his wife. No, I'm
not talking about those who me? Okay, go ahead is allowed for the man to be stimulated by his wife. The wife can use her hand on the men. So if the wife can use her hand and the eye doesn't apply to her, you get my point here. Yep. The IRA does not apply to her. You explain the idea though. So the idea has nothing to do the concept. Has nothing to do men and woman do that. So maybe they will be away from marriages in the future. Yeah, because they are enjoying themselves and that's it. This is what other group of people said that's they're disconnected from
Reality Nobody said they stem nice people for some, you know some toys and some these stuffs and they say in the future maybe these women or these even men that diversity ones, so that you will be
need marriage that is what they say and that is Mr. Michel Carney's position he has an entire result of your system now in my machine Kenny was very very strict human more than I am has this and there's a thought from BB Bas and others in this regard. By the way I agree with you but just I wanted to ask,
but also has an explicit explicitly why in this regard that it is gigantic before you list them that masturbation for women or men, it's permissible, even divorcing woman and divorcing is also it is permissible, but we have to be very careful when we don't open the door for Xena line.
For most people, for most especially men, masturbation is linked with pornography. Now, we have to be very clear here pornography. MSC radiography is harmful to the soul. It corrupts a person's mind it is in aligning all of this is clear. Now as for Moogerah that is even if you own the masturbation no doubt it is something that is not noble. And it's not something anybody should be proud of. But if a person does it, it's not something that will cause them to be punished in Jannah it was like a luxury chef. Question number eight eight I will move to LA that do people can people keep dogs in their homes? Yes or no? Don't tell me Maliki we're shuffling I mean the opinion of
me personally I do not encourage this that's all I was I do not encourage it. Why should that melodica will kick in the angels and this thing or what do you know the because the lab is not just there's nothing there are advantages but if a person has it for any Hajah then they have to be careful not just to you know have them enjoy with them walking with them keeping them in their houses as just fun but if the lab is not just it causes problems okay, what why the app does not make problems for us hobble calf the dog were in the cave with booze who but even though before for the one who owns it for Hydra, he has to be careful of it. Okay. of the lab itself of the slavers
what's the problem? So the problem there's no problem the Hadith tells us that it is not just okay then okay so because it's not just we don't we don't we don't want to pray with an address on our clothes we don't want to we don't want to sit down with the jossa when we when we when we are told in the Shetty i that a certain substances and I just want to try
me well and I believe it is and adjust it and this is the collagen mode as you're aware actually
even the medic is the digital citizen don't don't come around no no Malik. If you have a very strange view I just am asking you about one specific thing. Chef if you cannot find an adjuster you cannot see it you cannot smell it. You cannot touch it. There is no no Jessa ie yet
you will consider the police as an adjuster please just please know for a fact I don't know you know May Allah protect you and you yourself or anybody and he urinated on his garment yeah and for whatever reason for whatever it is you're not necessarily alone are far more alone depends on the
will go away in a while they suppose you're walking in as soon as I suppose you're walking
just listen to me one minute if someone makes a unit rate on the on the soil under the shade of the tree then after one month there is no smell there is no color but this is there is no there is nothing so the soil absorbs it as for your clothes and it's there it will be no it's there will be there and you know it's there. It will be there will be appearance you will see even the color or loan or Tom or rob this is your chef should know no no no no I'm sorry. No no no. No I will Kelvin does not require an SR two I will help you don't need to necessarily see it. That means for me it's not an address. So okay, that's your opinion. Jay you're asking me mine I'm saying I will kill
business and because of this do you believe it's prohibited? melodica angels to enter the place no I don't believe this. I think they do. Abul COVID-19 also says this while you accepted them Have you then you take this one oh this is a tow G have
an RV is on in this regard. Yeah, but this is Hadith who says that I'll kill em al Malik at the hobby for remember fantasy
so I have a long ago as usual you're asking all these where I have a longer lecture I gave about all of the positions of the football How about keeping with the dog and there's a number of though he had given but there's just you believe that the slaver has an address and impurity forgetting who said so that's why a number of scholars said that this is Haas for God and the process and I'm working with the Quran is cause for him. Some people some of them of the past said this. But uh
Question number nine. By the way, I think I'm disappointing you them I'm not as liberal as you are looks like Canada. And my critics accused me of being the most liberal. And here I am with any taking you back in this regard. I'm a Muslim smuggler. A question number nine. Can men shave their beard? And can woman pluck their eyebrow? So check that these types of questions again, as we're plucking their eyebrows again, Michelle, I have all these questions much longer go over all the law.
The whole issue of beards and whatnot, like I said about some previous questions, certain issues have become so emotional, you cannot have an intimate discussion without people just automatically jumping to he is this or he is that or he is this. And when that's the case, then I don't find it beneficial to have a discussion when a person is test has taken an issue that should be discussed in an academic setting to a level of emotionalism it becomes sad to have a back and forth the issue of the beard is in the grand scale of things. Yanni very low on the list of priorities of the very low. Some groups have made this the number three or four on the list and majority of alcohol the show to
shave your beard you are a sinful so they make a big deal. So So my point is Hadith anassa Bukhari referred to him not speak to the people according to their level, right? When the majority of Muslims are not even praying. They don't have zoton And they don't have Taqwa. They don't have Masaba hopefully xojo They're not thinking of the era. People come and they concentrate on something on the list that might be Number 97 Number 150. And they ignore the first 100. Right? You create a fitna in the minds of the people and you turn them away from the Dean. These types of issues here kind of Kareem, they should come when the heart is full of love for the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
and now you want to be like him, then you come to that part of the list. So I believe it is good for the Muslim to want to follow the process in some Sooners like this one and this one has long beard and Abuja has longer beard and so again we get into this I never said it's I never said it's number one. Number two I never said is the sign of iman, I never said this is the mahakal Philip Boehner Mr. MacArthur law, they said if you ever since we first talked about that we cannot even let your daughter getting married. So even wanting this her marriage has been the the one who wants to show
their position, the one who loves the Prophet system, and believes that certain things not everything because in my opinion dressing like the process is not sooner. I don't believe this dressing like him is not sunnah,
either. But I do believe that the beard is the Sunnah that he wanted us to follow. I do believe this, but it should come from the hub, it should come when you want to be like him. It should also come from wanting to be like the Saudi hand this is something that comes with them as well as for fear and having a beard and Ebola behind JoJo rabbit a beard. Everybody had a beard back in the past and this only happened in the 1910s when men began to shave while every culture pre modernity would have beards it was shot out of the the root of the eyebrows of the woman. So
a number of scholars of the past said this was a sign of prostitution. Yeah. And so it was prohibited as an Allama for that No. So when it is done when the human Musa yes so when it is done for this then it becomes a prohibition with reason. Yeah, well there is no reason for because it doesn't seem to make sense that there's Allah's law now.
here is not alone. Now the police dogs evolve and they have a longer beard. Yeah. So against your kind of as I said, this issue not once a person reaches a level of muhabba now he should automatically do it. I never want to give a whole hotbar about something that comes on the list very low. I don't believe this I leave this issue and it should be done organically and naturally. But she does hijab is obligatory act and where is that Allah said hijab is obligatory act and I'm talking here about Hijab to cover the ear of the woman. So the default and again she kind of the problem comes both the beard and the hijab. They are emphasized more than what Allah and His
Messenger have emphasized them in my humble opinion. Martindale hijab is higher order than the modest Okay, more than two comes with a certain please don't have to get the let me rephrase what I'm saying. So it is clear.
Regardless of the position one holds about the hijab and the beard.
To make these issues, the constant issues that are brought up in hotel Windows is not following the Quranic methodology. And the whole Quran, there's one or two verses about Laurel the hijab Yeah. So it needs to be discussed in that priority and context and
And the fact that we live in a time and a place where the level of flesh and nudity is so much, we need to understand our sisters cannot reach ideal immediately. So for them to be encouraged to go step by step, it is better than to present to them the ideal and no, they cannot follow it, but they should know the ideal, but we should be gentle if they cannot reach the ideal let me finish this very sensitive issue. The ideal and the default is that a woman must wear a loose covering for her entire body, except the head and the face. This is the ideal face, a face and the hands the hands using the head Oh, so the hands in the face. So this is the ideal and the default and this is any
Acadia con Iijima Salahuddin and muda hibi kuliah all of the medipol would say that a woman must cover her hair and must cover her entire body with
her neck enough the nap said hear something from a thumb.
Just remarkable earlier, the shown it many, many women, the shoulder have to look what you're saying. Okay, so this is the ideal idea. This is the ideal it is the default and it is frankly we can derive it directly from the Quran. We can derive it from the Quran. Now the issue comes with the Quran does not mention anything about here again, again, you want to watch all the push the the barrier and I'm pushing you back. So again, the audience should realize the audience should realize I'm just conveying the views I'm bringing the liberal I don't understand it's called the reformist something. I'm gonna bring other other views. I know what others say and I respect
your views will hold them in my opinion. We should encourage modesty all the time. And when our sisters are capable and ready, we tell them and encourage the wearing of the heads other people will come to tell you not no it's not ideal because there is Hadith says if you show when one here you will be hanging on a slot at the day of judgment and falling in the hellfire. That's not ideal idea. Now I'm not about open minded. I'm not liberal, I understand some people consider showing their hair to be almost like Zina or career America. This is what I'm talking about how to answer these. So I don't agree with this. But I do agree that it is obligatory for a woman to cover their hair. So you
understand what I'm saying? My position is in the middle between one group that is saying it's ideal to shake. Well obligatory. No, it is obligatory that when we talk with our sisters, we realize what percentage of them are doing this. So we tell them, let me give you an example. Let me give you a simple example. If we tell them in every hood, but wear their hijab wearing hijab and nobody's listening, then I need to give something to them that they can actually do. So why don't I say to them, and I've given her it was like this that sisters be modest and if you cannot wear the hijab and it is you should wear the hijab, if you cannot wear the hijab, then at least wear loose
Can we start with that? No what no sister can say I cannot wear loose clothing, you can wear loose clothing. So then we start with her loose clothing. Okay, and once she's wearing loose clothing, then we can take her to the next level. Now if she asks us is hijab, a liberatory? I have no way out and I must respond, but to constantly make the hijab The only issue the primary issue the fundamental issue. Yes, Salah is a million times more important than obligatory that means Salah is obligatory if you don't pray this leads us to another issue one of my pet peeves, one of my criticisms of the Islamic discourse of the hip hop amongst the IWRM we use words that that awam
Yeah, this is technical language. We'll have wajib and mcru and how long this technical language is meant for the legal fuqaha for the awam if you say to them, for example, murder is haram and then music is haram. Do you understand you are causing a fitna in their minds this what I'm talking about you're using the same word for Yanni about al Qaeda and something that even those that said music is haram even the fuqaha that said it it is Yanni Minh Asada saw it of the of the of the you know,
being you uncover your hair as a woman you make a major sin or minor sin.
Chef I asked this question
from a number of orlimar but I don't know if I'm allowed to mention the names or not.
The provenance check it these are very hasanz questions and with major our our major sin like Zina lasagna, she uncovered her hair.
I didn't see any No no, I'm not about you about those who say major
Sin, we are equalizing or equalizing or whatever, between the one who makes Zina, which is she uncovered all her body with the one who uncover five hairs share
there are sins that matter must be held Malwa right
that which has become one tissue or are prevalent in a society
and hold on let me finish. And if a person falls into a sin that is
prevalent in an entire station or place or time, it is not the same as a person who goes against and makes his a statement and does a sin that nobody does in his time in place. So, there is a reality even in our classical books of film, even an assorted feel can work. A sin that is when tissue that is that is everybody is doing it. It's level of sin is not going to be the same as somebody who invents and brings about and makes a statement in a society that does not do it. So they suffer harm. We need to look at the context and the culture. But whether or not we'll do
the ones that I asked now, they said it's not. It's not the major sin. Yeah, I do agree with them. 100%. But I asked them in private and these are senior like, I mean, I again, I have to, I can't I'm a person. No, no, no, no, I'm not asking about the names. But these are people that are very mainstream and very conservative again, and it is a less test upon me that the positions I hold many times people far greater than me hold them but they get away with it now and when I say them, we only Subhanallah Palma to dunya mokara that upon me now so i But the problem comes down is that we have to be wise in these things. We don't just tell people Oh, this is a minor sin, go ahead and do
it. It's not like this. If we encourage we encourage modesty. This is what we do. This is the point.
Why as a shoe as our lemma?
We knew something that it's easy, but we do not say to people, what is the point? If and how can we should we encourage piety or share? Let's be fair here as well. We don't want to discourage something that they might be doing. Oh, don't worry about a dolla shake, we have to encourage them to make something halal or minors and to make a major, major sin. I never said made
up I haven't used major use if not you have you. Okay, so that's the point. I'm talking about those who do not tell people easy things in the DNS. So under the umbrella that we have to encourage people to be more pious, you are hiding the hammer. It's not just hanging sugar, they turn any to benefit investment at the end. Yes, it will lead to isolation. Tomorrow, right? It will be about So there's a problem comes and this is the constant tension between the idealists and between the pragmatist and there's a constant tension, the idealists they are not happy with 90% they want 100 They are in my you are comfortable, modern wartet right now, and this is the problem, mainstream
olema preachers that are preaching to the masses, they're not preaching to the idealist. They're preaching to those that are far from the Drina, our job is to make them closer to the dean. No, our job is to make them from zero to 10, from 10 to 20, from 20 to 30. In order to do that, we don't want to start with 100 because they're never gonna they're gonna say 100 comma zero, how can I get there? You understand? We have to go to their level. At the same time, this is the key point. We are not negating what ideal is no, we're not making fun of the ideal Lucretia. Right. So the default is that Islam has come with a dress code for men and women and Allah subhanho wa Taala encouraged us to
be modest and Allah and Xander the boss and why are you so arty como Xena Orisha? Allah azza wa jal yeah what Isha sorry, Xena as a whole the Xena Dakota University so Allah azza wa jal centers down close. And throughout all civilizations and cultures, you're gonna think about this every Muslim civilization from Indonesia all the way you know, to Morocco and then Underoos our sisters war headcoverings think about this. There was never a society she was telling me this too. I'm not against the hijab. I'm not you I'm using you as the example because there are people that are saying
I know Yeah, so So the default is that the Sharia has come with modesty and Hashima and this includes the covering of the face of the understood and I will lie to you my I'm so curious to know who's the Allama the chief talked about with them about this issue? I'm gonna know the names after the inshallah interview. But shifting gears analyzing one from the most knowledgeable all about hidden American. Wait a bit MFI. We are enjoying the
last question, question number 10. That about the long thought or long close
Some people said that if you do it even without huella without arrogance, you will be in hellfire. Even even Taymiyah said Whoever does this without any higher law. This is not clear. I mean it's not clear even if it's your family members, it's something they've ever been to me. I said you must have the Cuber humble said if you wear something below the cap below the ankles, you will be in hellfire and now
Tamia Rama Allah. Yeah, and it is. It's not following. He's not following you now his Sheikh Mohammed, so let me know. So as far as I'm aware, what you're saying
he had been humbled Himself has another coal. I'll have to look it up. But as you know, I've been humbled always when we explain the idea of mass federal campaign of often not who are called I will have learned Hadith.
We want to take another Hadith who talks about fella chef the position of all format? I have had a bit of a show off here. Well, Hanafy Yeah, well, Maliki the default position is that the one who lowers the garments without Huila, without kibou, the sin that Kabira does not apply to him. This is the default position, and x the one who say that it is a sin. This is Khalid Omar who macheda the small group of people actually, believe it or not, do you know who was one of the most efficient they've been hired in this regard? Shafi, even though Imam Shafi didn't hold this position, but a Shafi later I have been hijacked. And I know there have been these two are very strict in this
regard. Then the modern anti slavery movement they they took this as the default position for hanging in the misogyny 990s there Yeah, if your thought like the fool who covers the ankles does it fin or Yeah, so it'd be in hell for me I didn't have this position and none of the former dives has the fatwa on this end none of the formatives This is something I did in the by the way this was in my Medina days. My first major birth I did in Medina my first year that I was really any snuggled up to cave How can the folk AHA the majority of them have a position and you know,
remember when necessary
for them and others law does nothing comparison to the template with the madhhab. humble himself forget about Martin humble himself. He's so we you know, we are we are not able to look up right now, because we're having a back and forth. But I'm 99% Sure, you will find that Ey and what you also make this stuff see what we have to do here. When we found today we're at an opposite, you're getting into a whole sort of filter issue. What we have to do when you bring some items is something and the opposite of it. Which one you have to take which code you have to take depends on which also you're going to follow. And that's a whole different question. If you are SRE, you're going to just
pick the things which make it more more restricted. Well, let's not open this door because everybody's McCullen and so the attorney will find his share that he thinks is upon the heart. And He will say this is what the Hadith says. So everybody, everybody follows their own Shere Khan this river. So in my opinion, this prohibition this provision applies in this time in society if he's in an interview, so some in the time of the Prophet says Adam, the point of lowering your thoughts underneath the the ankle, it was meant to show that I have wealth and hola or Bali, I have so much clothes at home, I can get it dirty. You want to make the statement like the one who has Yanni a
very loud suit we call it you know the suit that has this like a very like showing off some flashy suit, right. Somebody who has a car with all the weird colors than the most $200,000 car he wants to make the statement I am rich and I'm flaunting it for the issue is the keeper of the heart. And the the garment becomes the alarm of that Kibber right. So in our time and Titan, everybody is wearing normal pants and shirts and fillers and whatnot. The The sub is gone it is there it is gone. So it is not something that is harder every time Hamdulillah we stayed with Shift Victoria circled the we are enjoying this Pamela three hours now to bring you this thing cushions we still have like three
hours to record with Chef yesterday in his Masjid in Arabic I really enjoyed with talking with
Professor the so called the about all these matters and questions and asking Allah subhanaw taala to make us in his any magazine has. I want to make a disclaimer out of these 10 questions were completely chosen by you not by me. Of course they were very SAS questions now. And each one deserves a long some of them I have given longer responses. And so in case wordings were not done correctly, I hope inshallah the critics can overlook this time because everything we have to be careful about but the point is clear. There's Oh yeah, there's priorities. Most of these questions, especially these feel questions you asked, they're not from the Olivia. And so my point is we have
To be the wasa we don't want to make 10 feet of here, or 10 feet over there. That's what we're trying to say. Insha Allah we are blessed as a Muslims, people living here in America to have some elections. Yes, of course. We are blessed to have all the politeness with his wisdom. I'm asking Allah subhanaw taala to give him more. I'm asking Allah to bless him and his family. I'm asking Allah to grant him goodness in a dunya Well, thank you so much. Those who are watching us from any place in the world. BarakAllahu li comb, this Imam Baqir Salam Alikum Aquila. What was that like? Said I was echolocate would even
be beach and
big uma token.
