You believe breathe
brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
May the peace, mercy and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be on all of you.
Welcome to the show, Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir. I'm your host, Yousef chambers. And today we will be discussing Ramadan,
the month of self improvement and Islam Part One Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Dr. zakia walakum wa salam ala heuberger Dr. Zakir, as many of the shows we've started off with definition of the terms and this episode will be none different in the sense that I'd like you to first and foremost to define the term. What exactly does isela mean? especially in the context of Ramadan?
Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while earlier with ibma Benjamin, my bad I was a Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbish le sadri were suddenly Embrey wild Melissa and EF Gokhale, the Arabic word Islam means to correct it means to improve, it means to repay.
Whenever one Muslim corrects the Muslim, or he improves him, it is called as Islam. For example, if a Muslim is making a mistake,
rather than offering Salah or any of the acts of Islam, or anything, if someone corrects him, it's called Islam.
And, as mentioned the Quran so the hood, chapter number 11, was number 88. My only desire is the improvement
is the betterment to the best of my power. And my success would only come from Allah Spano, tala, and I trust in him and I look up to him. I trust in Allah and I look up to Allah. So you have to realize that your will is a lamb, you will slap to his people.
It's for the mission the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the 114. It says that, in the secret talks, there is no good except for a person who desires a good deed
of charity or justice or he can settlement
between two Muslims.
If such a DD does, then security is permissible. And if someone does such a deed, seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala, he'll get the reward which is very high. Otherwise, normally, secret talks. Most of the time, it's not good, except for deeds of charity, of justice and Rican settlement between two Muslims. So you have realized that Allah subhanaw taala he says that one Muslim should try and improve the other Muslim you should Islam with him.
You should correct him.
And Allah says in the Quran in surah libran. Chapter number three was the 110 punto Hara omotenashi javelinas or Muslims, he are the best of peoples of all for mankind. Allah has given us an honor and calling as Muslims as oma the best of people who are for mankind.
And Allah continues that Madonna Bill Maher Oh, no, not in Mankato. Mina Bella, is calling out the best of people because we are supposed to enjoy what is good and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah.
If we do not enjoy what is good and if you do not forbid what is wrong, we are unfit to be cholesteatoma we are unfit to be called Muslims. So is the duty of every Muslim that he should slap and Dawa
and try and improve his fellow Muslim.
And the hadith of a beloved Prophet Musa al Salaam,
is mentioned as a Muslim on number one, in the book of faith, number 79.
With a beloved partner celestron said that if any of the Muslims see anything which is abominable, anything which is wrong, he should stop it with his hand.
If he does not have the strength to do that, she has trouble with this tongue. If he does not understand to do that, then you should at least have heard it in his heart. She had this curse in his heart, and then he will have the least degree of faith. That means if you abort it in your heart, if you curse in your heart, you're the lowest level of movement. That is the reason Islam is a very important part of the Muslims life. Just sokola hair doctors okay. In terms of topic today, of course is Ramadan, the issue of Ramadan, why is Ramadan, the preferred month of undergoing the process of self improvement and this law Ramadan is the best month of self improvement Allah
Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 183 Yeah, are you hold us in Amman, oh, you believe catabolic Messiah. Fasting has been prescribed to you come up with a ballerina,
as it was prescribed to people who can before you look into the code, so that you may learn self restraint. So if you fast the main reason is to learn self restraint, taqwa righteousness, by God consciousness. And as we discussed earlier, that the psychology they tell us that if you can control your hunger, you can control almost all your desires. So in the month of fasting, when we fast, inshallah, whatever deficiency we have, it's the best opportunity to control them. Because if you can no longer control almost all the desires, so all your desires, which may be away from Islam away from Allah, and is Russell's commandment, this is the best opportunity, therefore, a man of the
month of self improvement and Islam. Same way, when we are doing Islam, correcting another Muslim, who's also fasting, it is the best time that he can agree with improvement and best time to correct himself. Furthermore,
our beloved Prophet, Muslim said, it's mentioned Muslim, Mr. Warden number two,
Page Number 230, added number 7148. With the Beloved Prophet said that Ramadan is the month in which the gates of heaven they opened,
and the gates of hell they're closed. And the devils that chained to when the devils are chained, the less chances are that you can be distracted. And there are more chances that you can go on the straight path, the less temptation from the devil.
That's the reason it is the best time in the full year for a person
and for the person to improve himself. But this is the time where we can be lifted about the devil. And since the gates of heaven open, it's inviting you towards the good, and the gates of hell are close. So it is taking you away from the evil and the sin.
And there are these again repeated in turn and decide
in the book of fasting, added number 2106. That in the month of Ramadan, the gates of heaven open, the gates of hell are closed, and the devil is chained.
And it's also mentioned in say Buhari,
in the book of fasting, how did number 1901 the Beloved Prophet said that
who fasts in the month of Ramadan,
with the belief
and seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala, all his passes will be forgiven. So imagine, this is the best appointment at maybe a person to the center, he has done many mistakes. And if he fast the full month of Ramadan, all his passing will be forgiven. So at least he feels like coming to the straight path. Either the person has stood in a lot and said, oh, I've seen so much and what's my chances of religion? Now? How can I go to Paradise? And how can I come on the straight path for a man in the month with all his past sins can be forgiven? And he can start his life afresh. So the best time for self improvement, as well as Islam, same with the other Muslim brother.
Well, Dr. Zakir
it seems like you've explained that Ramadan is indeed 30 days of training and for us to implement some good habits into our life if we have been falling into error. And I asked the last panel atella to allow us all to take the use of that opportunity and really sarcomas and excellent deeds for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Could you at this stage just explain to us could you define what exactly is a major sin?
major things are those actions and deeds
which have been forbidden by law by Nortel in the Quran and which have been prohibited by Mozilla
I'm in a sauna, inauthentic habit, and which has also been
by the first generation of people around the Prophet that the Sabbath. So if it's profitable last minute Allah and by the mystery Allah Spano tala, it's called as immediacy. And it is mentioned in a say hadith of Muslim cataloguing
form number two, in the book of deceit, added number 3419. The Beloved Prophet masala Sallam said that, whatever Allah subhanaw taala has privated you have to abstain from it. And whatever he has permitted, you can indulge in that. And in things which Allah is silent, that's a concession for you. So, the constituent last minute Allah for Allah subhanaw taala never forgets. And the messenger decided there was a different sort of medium chap number 19 was number 64. He says that Allah subhanho wa Taala interval forgets.
And it's mentioned
say Buhari org number for added number 2766.
That the Prophet peace be upon him. He said, that do you know which are the seven destructive sins? The Prophet said that they are, number one, associating partners to Allah subhanaw taala or associating in worship? Anyone else besides Allah subhanaw taala.
Number two, practicing sorcery
that's black magic.
Number three, taking the life
of a person
who Allah subhanaw taala has made sacred unless for just cause.
And He further goes and says that eating grubba interest and usury eating the orphans property unlawfully
and justly let me continue that says that showing a back to the enemy fleeing away from the battlefield. And the seventh one
that slandering chaste women who are just believers. So these are the seven obnoxious sins, mentioned my beloved partner Sarah salon, but we live near Bassman live be that immodest. It's mentioned in the commentary of a debris on before added number 9207. The diviner bus metal RPG thing was asked that a major sin seven
now, Basma Lopez's reply 70 is a closer number
than to seven.
So these seven says mentioned but the blurred profit, they are just giving an outline of which categories of cinza. That doesn't mean they're seven since there are many more, it gives outline that says that, since the Java penalty, whether it be fornication, whether it be practicing black magic, whether it be tasked with giving a sample record in a bus, he says it's 71 of the major sins. Well, thank you for the answer. Dr. Zakir, can I burden you by asking you now to list exhaustively the 70 major sins in Islam? Is that possible? I will try inshallah.
As I mentioned to you that according to the deed of Abner buss, which is mentioned in a debris on before or the number 9207 that have been abasement up the thing we have asked, that other be just seven and he replied, that 70 is a closer number than seven, a mama Debbie, Mel Have mercy on him. He has written a book called buyer, the major sins and He has listed the 17 major sins from crime, according to his understanding. There is no Quranic verse which says that these are the 17 major sins. Neither is there any say Hadith, we say that these are the 17 major sins, but a mama Tabby, mela mercy on him. He has compiled upon his understanding from the Quran and Hadith,
the 17 major sins according to his order, some people agree some people disagree. It's a different thing. But Finn, abasement llopis ism said that the 70 since a mama Debbie Miller mercy on him, he has listed the 70 sins according to his understanding as follows. Number one, according to him, is associating partners with the last minute Allah ascribing any partners joining anything with Allah subhanaw taala. That's in worship. Number two is murder.

So these were the 17 major sins that have been listed by Imam Abu Dhabi, in his book acabar that the major sins based on that date based on the call of nobis millipede within the 17 major sins, this is his listing his order.
But Nigel, based on his understanding of the foreign sad, there are scholars who do differ whether the major sins are seven or they're 17 or they are 35 or 70. Some of the people may disagree that some should not be in the major sins. It should be the mindless since somebody said that this is not a sin at all. So scholars do differ. But on the whole moment, that'd be Mashallah. Mashallah emozioni is a great scholar, and this the way how he listed these, but there is a difference of opinion in it. Okay, well Jazakallah hair for that and the end of that round you scored 95%
of dogs is accurate for the benefit of the viewers have listened to the 70 major sins that you've listed. Could you explain what is the reward that a person will get from abstaining from those major sins in this life? Allah mother says in the Quran in surah, Nisa, chapter number four, was limited to one that if anyone is choose from the most hideous of the thing which are forbidden to do,
that Allah subhanho wa Taala will expel out of view the evil in you and will make you enter the gate of honor. That means if we abstain from the major sin, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take away all the other small, small sins, and he will make you enter Paradise. Allah repeats the message in sort of shorter chap number 42 verse number 37, where law says that if you abstain from the major sins, and the shameful deeds, and those who when they get angry,
yet they forgive talking about these people, those who go agenda
it further mentioned sort of najem chap number 53 was committed to that if you abstain from the hideous sins from the major sins and the shameful deeds
getting involved or indulging in small falls and small sins. Allah subhanaw taala is a forgiving most merciful that means as long as you have obtained from the major sins and even if you do the small falls and small sins inshallah, Allah will forgive you and you shall the gentleman
and the hadith of masala Sallam mentioned say Muslim world number one is number 450 which says that the five daily prayers and from one Friday prayer to the next Friday prayer and one dumb down to the next Ramadan is the period for expansion of your sins as long as we obtained from major sins. That means if we obtained four major sins the five times that you offer Salah
one Fred disallowed to the other Friday Salah, one dump down to the other umland all your sins will be forgiven as long as we abstain from the major sins. So if you opt in for major sins, inshallah you shall end agenda Mashallah. That's a very good reason to abstain over the remaining part of this program and the following program in sha Allah, we will be discussing some of those major sins and although we haven't got time to discuss all 70 and obviously offering some ways to avoid committing them repeatedly. Could you explain doctor? What is the most deadly major sin of all major sins?
The number one major sin or the deadliest of all the major sins is associated partners Allah subhanaw taala that is shirk. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa japp number four was number 48 that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive it not, if anyone associate partners with him. If Allah pleases Him, if it with anything is led up to the message, Minister Nyssa step number four was 116
Allah subhanaw taala forgive it not the sin of joining other gods with Allah. Any other sin if he pleases we may forgive for anyone who has joined
God's with Allah subhanho wa Taala has stayed away far
and there are various a hadith mentioning that the biggest of all the major sins is shake, as mentioned say Buhari
number nine, added number six a seven one. The Beloved Prophet masala Sallam said
the most major biggest sin is joining Gods with Allah subhanaw taala.
It further appeared in several say Hadith, including say Buhari,
boy number three, added number two six Sipho. The Beloved Prophet asks the Sahaba they do know, which is the biggest of all the major sins. So the Sahaba replied, Allah messengers knows the best.
Salam messenger replied, that joining God, Allah subhanaw taala joining in worship somebody else besides Allah subhanaw taala and there are several verses in the Quran, which also give the same message. That share is one of the most that does it is d deadly sin. Allah says in Jeremiah, chapter number five, verse number 72. In no metric Billa anyone also said partner with Allah, forget haram Allah, Allah Jana, Allah will make generous haram for him, by the forbidden for him. Mama, who not only minion, Sire, and fine shall be dwelling place, and he shall have helped us in the hereafter.
Unless Israel of man, chapter number 31 was number 13. Join not in worship with Alinea, the god join not in worship of the gods with Allah. For anyone who does false worship. It is the highest of the wrongdoing. That means the biggest sin in Islam edition, associate partner with Allah subhanaw taala. Allah messenger further says it's a Muslim. org number four, added number 7114007 says
that Allah subhanaw taala said,
am alone self sufficient, and not require any associate and anyone who does any deed for someone else. As well as for myself.
I renounce that deed. For the person who has associated that even the last one author does not require any associate he or only self sufficient, there for sure, is the biggest sin in Islam.
Well, does Allah have the answer Dr. Zakat and note further like to say that we do see a lot of this sin being committed amongst the other non Muslim communities. Is it true to say that Muslims are free from committing this sin? Or do they commit this sin as well? Unfortunately,
besides the non Muslims, there are many Muslims who also commit the shark.
deadliest of all major sins and
many a time many Muslims they call upon people other than Allah subhanaw taala. They asked them for the ultimate help. You know, they seek the ultimate help from people other than Allah smart Allah, they pray to people other than Allah subhanaw taala and Allah clearly mission in the Quran. And there's the people who obtained doing such things. Allah says in Surah Fateha chapter number one was number five, yup. And Buddha Yeah, can stain do only worship, they will only ask for help. Allah says in Surah chapter number 40 was the most 60
asked me and I will answer your prayer. Allah says in Surah Surah chapter number 17, verse number 23, that the Lord has decreed that you worship none but him.
It's mentioned in Surah chapter number seven, was the 194 that all those who you worship besides Allah subhanho wa Taala
they are like servants like unto you, That like normal, they're like summons Allah subhanaw taala we are servants, even those who call besides Allah, even their servants of Allah subhanaw taala there are many of us in the Quran, guiding us that we should not ask for the ultimate help or pray to anyone who says Allah subhanaw taala Allah says in Surah chapter number 46 was number five, that indeed Deaf trade away those who call to other than Allah.
And these people, they will not be able to answer on the Day of Judgment, and neither do they hear their call and the prayer.
Allah says this Raj chap number 22, verse number 73, that all those who you call upon all those the worship, besides Allah subhanaw taala if all of them gathered together, they will not be able to even create a fly, live aside, create a human being and help them they cannot even create a fly. And if the fly snatches away some food, they will not even be able to get it back. People are those who petition people or those to whom they petition
And I love messenger for the season say Buhari form number 600. Number 449 711. Messenger says that anyone who dies in Woking to anyone besides Allah subhanho wa Taala and does not depend for dying, then he will be entered into Hellfire, He will surely go to hell with anyone who does ship and die the mushrik he will go to hellfire. So, this is a sin which many Muslims Unfortunately, they indulge in this thing. And the other common thing which leads to shark is, if you slaughter
anything, in name of anyone besides Allah, even this is indirectly shark and many of the Muslims that unfortunately indulge in this practice, which leads to shark like some Muslims, when they buy a new house, they want to slaughter an animal in the name of virgin you know, the jinn may have possessed that to please the jinn. I've gone to dig a well the sorter in the name of Virgin and they do such practices which are alien to Islam.
And Allah says in the Quran, known as in four different places in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 173. In chapter number five was number three, insert an object number six less than 145. And it shouldn't have held chapter number 16 verse 115, put a much like human mind to the what the mobile arm will concede. Omar will Allah gorilla be forbidden for you for fouda, dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and any food on which any name besides our last name is taken. So if you have any food, on which any name besides our last name mistaken, it is equivalent to ship.
Even if the slaughter any animal, in the name of anyone besides Allah, it is a ship. It is prohibited in Islam.
Allah says in Surah imraan chapter number three was the 160 If Allah helps you, then can overcome you. If Allah for 60, who is dead, then who can help you. So let the believers put the trust in Allah subhanaw taala we have to put our full trust in Allah subhanaw taala and only him no one else. And Allah says in Surah corser chapter monroney was number two, for son Lilya become one that turned to the Lord in prayer and sacrifice. Sacrifice is only due to Allah subhanaw taala and prayer is only due to a last minute Allah and a beloved partner Salah slim said, its mission say Muslim world number three, number 4878 with the Beloved Prophet said that Allah curse is the one who sacrifices
in the name of anyone besides Allah subhanaw taala.
So unfortunately, some of the Muslims indirectly get involved in this major sin, which is the biggest sin in Islam that
may Allah subhanaw taala make this month, the month of correction as we were talking about Islam, and this is the best month where if you're involved in any of the sins, any of the major sins of minors, and we can correct ourselves. And if our Muslim brother is doing the same, we can reach out to him because the shatin their chain for the best time that they can accept the message. There'll be less diversion from the truth. And the Kudo to Sheldon is less. And because the first thing I will talk about at the highest level, so my last mile to get all of us. I mean, I mean, especially in this month, of course. Dr. Zakir in your list earlier on, you mentioned that the unlawful killing
of innocent people is one of the major sins. Now. Unfortunately, the media often portrays the Muslims as promoting the killing of innocent human beings. Could you just clarify exactly what is the Islamic perspective on this killing of innocent human lives?
Allah subhanaw taala clearly mentioned this in sort of my the chapter number five was the motto
that if anyone kills any other human being,
unless it be for murder, of spreading corruption in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity. So qurani very specific, if anyone, whether Muslim or non Muslim, kills any other human being, whether Muslim or non Muslim, and let it be for murder, or for spreading corruption in the land. It is as though he has killed the whole of humanity. So killing any innocent human being is prohibited in Islam. What the media portrays that Islam promotes killing innocent human being at etc. Terrorism is totally a misconception. And most of the religions, they do say that killing innocent human being is wrong. But Islam goes a step further, and continues in the same verse in
sort of either chapter number five was commentary to continue that says that if anyone saves any human being, it is as though yes saved the whole nation. That means if we save one human life, whether Muslim or non Muslim, it is as though Yes, save the whole of humanity. So Islam not only condemns killing innocent human being, it promotes saving the life of human beings. Allah further says in Surah Nam chapter number six
was the 151 that take not life which Allah has made sacred
by way of justice, or law, that means killing as mentioned, of a human being, you can't kill innocent human being. But if a human being commits murder,
but natural, it doesn't mean that anyone can go and take revenge, or can retaliate and kill the murderer. Or if someone is spreading corruption, you can go and kill him, you have to take him to the law. And if it's not your country, take him to a court of Islamic law, take him to the kadhi. And then he will pronounce the judgment that if he deserves to be killed, he'll be put to that. But that doesn't mean that any Muslim can take the law in his own hand, it should go to the Islamic court of law if it is a some country, or to the law of that country. And
in general, as I mentioned, killing any innocent human being is prohibited. And that's what I mentioned by a beloved partner solemn, it's mentioned say Buhari, or number nine, Hadith number 6871. The Prophet said,
the biggest of the major sin is our first associated part of the last month Allah number two is taking a life or murdering or killing an innocent human being.
So generally you cannot kill any human whether Muslim or non Muslim. There are many other verses which say specifically, that you should not kill Muslims also. General versus not killing any innocent women be the specific verses. We say that it should not kill Muslims. Allah says in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the mandatory that if anyone intentionally kills a believer,
he will be in Hellfire forever to abide they're in forever and Alas, close and wrath will be on him, and he will get a dead full penalty for killing any believe on left for the cause. That he mentioned unless he commits murder or corruption, killing is prohibited.
It's further mentioned in the hadith of a masala Salaam. Its mission say Buhari was number one in the book of faith. Number 31. The beloved partner Salah Salem said that if two believers fight amongst themselves with swords,
one believer kills the other believer, both the murderer and the murdered person, they will go to hell to the Sahaba as the Prophet, that we can understand that the murderer goes to hell. Why does the murdered believer goes to hell, for the Prophet said that the murdered person also had the intention to kill the believer that there isn't both go to hell.
And further mentioned in, say Buhari one number 900. Number 686 to the blood Prophet said that a believer is at Liberty and free until he unlawfully takes the life of another human being. That mistake in the life of any human being whether Muslim or non Muslim is prohibited and condemned in Islam. It is one of the biggest major sins it comes number two in the 17 major sins.
We Allah protects us from making such an error in our lives inshallah. So, for the benefit of the viewers, Dr. Zaki, could you explain why the practice of black magic is prohibited and it's one of the major sins in Islam. In Islam, black magic is
discovering Islam, and it has been labeled as one of the major sins in
cyber Hurry, Barnum for added number 2766 where the Beloved Prophet said that the seven most destructive sins are the first he said that joining God's with Allah that
number two is
murder. Number three is practicing black magic, sorcery. So masala Salaam, the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. He has labeled black magic, practicing sorcery as one of the major sins in Islam. And Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the Mandarin two that
they learn things which have not which brings profit on this. So don't this black magic only brings harm and does not bring gain or profit to anyone. It's mentioned in chapter number 2164. We save that however much the magicians
however my skills they have, they will never be successful. Successful no be there, our skillful there and it further mentioned in Surah Baqarah, chapter number two was to that
Solomon and his Salam did not disbelieve. It is the Athene it is the devil's who disbelieved because they practiced black magic, and other things which were sent on the city of Babylon, to the two angels, haruta and marut. But these two angels, they never did. They never believed.
And they never practice black magic, but they always told the people that we have been sent as a trial as a test. So
do not disbelieve, and do not practice black magic. So black magic is in Islam. And the punishment for a person who practice a black magic is that penalty.
But unfortunately, there are many Muslims who indulge in black magic. Many of the Muslims, they go to a person who does black magic in order to take revenge from someone in order to hurt enemy, which is totally Haram in Islam is totally prohibited. Unfortunately, some of our Muslims, when black magic is done on them, they go to the magicians, asking them to save them from the black magic, the best person to seek protection from Allah subhanaw taala. And unless why not Allah has revealed the boys attain the last two four of the Quran. It's random 113 that is sort of Allah. And it's 114 that is fair enough. With a close grip if Allah says seek refuge in the Lord of the daybreak,
schoolhouse, drabness says seek refuge with the Lord of dawn. And it says, in sort of philosophy, that seek refuge from the people who practice black magic, and sort of nasty 914 from those who whisper and Vidro. So these two sutras was specifically revealed as a relief as a prediction from black magic. Black Magic is one of the major sins in Islam, and indulging it directly or indirectly is private in Islam. Just a holla. Doctor second last question today. Last but not least, what does Islam say about the respect given to parents?
Have you mentioned that disrespect to parents is number eight, in the 70 major sins and Islamic country Mama, the hubby and it's very sinful to respect parents for their various was in the Quran, and the Hadith, which showed emphasis on respecting the parents. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Surah chapter number 17, was number 2324. Allah says that we have ordained that you worship men but Allah subhanaw taala, that to be kind to your parents, and if one of them, or both of them reach old age, don't say a word of contempt to them. Don't say up to them, but address them with honor and low to them giving up humility, and pray to the Lord, that bless them as they cherish me in childhood.
That means if your parents reach old age, one of them or both of them, you can't even say to them
for this machine, the Quran in surah Nam, chapter number six was the 151 that Allah says, Be good to your parents.
And it says in several of us in the foreign, especially a mother, Allah says is for an eSATA proforce number one, respect the womb that bore you.
Unless it is for Look, man, Chapter 31 verse number 14, we have enjoined on the human beings to be good to the parents intervene upon travel did the motherboard them and yes, when was the Vini?
Allah says in Surah ucraft Yep, number 46. Verse number 15, we have endured non human beings to be kind to the parents
in pain, that the mother boo and pain Did she give you birth. So here, Allah says respect to parents, especially the mother. And there are various added talking about respecting the mother is mentioned by Buhari one number eight. In the book Avada book of manners, chapter number two, the number 5971 a person comes to Prophet Musa al Salaam and asked him that who deserves the best companionship in this world. The Prophet save your mother, the man asked after that to the Prophet defeats your mother. The man asked after the two again the Prophet faith the third time your mother, the man asked after the two then the Prophet said the Father. That means 75% three fourths of the
companionship goes to the mother 25% one foot goes to the Father. In short, the mother gets a gold medal. She gets the silver medal, and she gets the bronze medal. The father has to be satisfied with the mere consolation prize. These are the teachings in Islam. As far as split two parents are concerned and a mother gets three times more companionship. thrice more companionship than the Father.
I mentioned in the habit of, say body worn number four, I did number 3004. A man came to the prophet and sought his permission to go to jihad, and is fighting the view of Allah subhanaw taala on the battlefield, the Prophet asked him, Do you have parents? He said, Yes. So he said, that you go and serve your parents, showing the importance that serving parents and being dutiful towards one parent is more important than going for just finding that we have Allah subhanaw taala. If your parents require you, it's more important to have your parents and to go for jihad. Find them if Allah subhanaw taala same message you've given us a Bukhari number eight, in the book of adapt, added
number 5970, that a person has that which deed is dearest to Allah subhanaw taala. And the Prophet said, that, offering the five prescribed prayers at the earliest time,
the man asked after that, which is a direct deed, the prophet said, being dutiful towards your parents, the man asked after that which the Prophet said that fighting their way of Allah subhanaw taala doing jihad. So you have to realize that after offering prayers at the prescribed time, at the earliest time, the next thing Allah likes, is be dutiful, towards the parents, respecting your parents, being obedient to parents, and then comes January of Allah subhanaw taala. Its mission was not empty handed them but five to seven to the Prophet said, the three types of people we would deprive from Buddha paradise. The first is mono brings intoxicants. Number two, one who disobedient
to the parents. And number three, one who does shameful deeds on behalf of the family. So all these three people were deprived paradise so therefore disrespecting the parents is one of the major sins in Islam.
