dear brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh May the peace, the mercy and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be on all of you. Welcome to the show Ramadan at date with Dr. Zakir I am your host, Yousef chambers, and today we will be discussing the topic Ramadan, the month of supplications

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

Dr. Zakir Somali Kumar Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh while him as

00:01:24--> 00:02:16

well Dr. Zakir yesterday we were talking about Ramadan as being the month of repentance. And because it was such a lengthy topic, we didn't cover all of the viewers questions. Today, we will cut short the interview in exchange for answering the viewers questions on the topic generally about repentance and supplication is such a small difference between the two but it's a world in itself. But Dr. Zakir, if I could just pose the first question today. Why is Ramadan referred to often by many people as being the month of supplications Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah us ibH mean Ummah but also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim,

00:02:17--> 00:02:41

rubbish Melissa de mycelium de Waal, Melissa Neff, Coco Lee. Before I answer a question, I would like to first define what is the meaning of the word supplication? supplication means to call upon Allah subhana wa Taala the Almighty and glorious with devotion with inferiority and solidarity, and with complete submission.

00:02:42--> 00:02:55

And a beloved prophet masala, some said. It's mentioned in say hundreds of tirmidhi Hadith number 2616. a beloved partner, Salah Salim said that there are three gates of goodness.

00:02:56--> 00:02:56

The first is

00:02:58--> 00:03:18

fasting, which is a shield from the hellfire. Second is a sucker, that is charity that charity extinguishes sin, same as water extinguishes fire. And the third is standing in prayer, in the late hours in the night.

00:03:20--> 00:03:32

So you ever realized there is a relationship between supplication prayer and fasting? And Alas, mantras is different. In surah baqarah chapter number two, was number 186.

00:03:33--> 00:03:49

Allah says, that if my servants as the concerning me, tell them, I am indeed close to them. And I listen to the prayer of every supplicant and tell them that if they listen to my call,

00:03:51--> 00:04:21

willingly, and if they believe in me, I will take them to the straight path. You have realized the closeness of Allah subhana wa Taala, along with his believers, his servants and slaves, and he says, if my slaves if my servants My servants, means the closeness that the human beings have the last man of Allah, if they asked me concerning me, tell them I'm indeed close to them. The show the closeness between the believers and a last minute Allah and he says, I will respond to them.

00:04:22--> 00:04:30

And Allah further says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four, was the metallic but us from the bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

And a beloved Prophet Musa al Salaam said, as mentioned, say Buhari,

00:04:36--> 00:04:42

born the marriage number six times zero to the Beloved Prophet said that Allah has

00:04:44--> 00:04:55

asked me and I will give it to you. Ask me a prediction, and I will predict you. And as far as Ramadan being called as the month of supplication, a beloved Prophet said

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

it's mentioned in a say hadith of Al Baqi

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Number 69 three with a beloved Prophet said that Allah subhanaw taala does not reject the prayer of three kinds of people. One is the Father, pray for his child, his son or daughter, the second is a fasting person,

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

especially the bricks is fast. And the third is the traveler.

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

And a beloved partner sallam, He further said, is mentioned as a added,

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

added number 1643.

00:05:31--> 00:05:35

The Prophet said that Allah subhanaw taala emancipates

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

the slaves from the Hellfire

00:05:39--> 00:05:49

during every are when the fast is broken, and does this every night. And a beloved prophet also said, it's mentioned say hadith of say a turkey

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

added number nine ated.

00:05:53--> 00:06:41

Allah subhanaw taala ransoms ramsons, the Muslims from the Hellfire every day and night in the month of Ramadan, and he answers the prayer of every Muslim every day and night in the month of Ramadan. So because Allah subhanaw taala he listens to the application of the person who fasts and to give the special status. That is the reason Ramadan is called the month of supplication. Beautiful reason for calling it the month of Ramadan has been the month of supplication. And furthermore, I'd like to ask you, Dr. Zakir if you could explain what are the etiquettes of supplicating towards Allah subhanho wa Taala the person should remember that he should only ask some Allah Nunez unless it's in

00:06:41--> 00:07:03

the Quran in Surah Fatiha jack number one was number five, ear canal de yakunin stain girone worship Dylan Yes, well, you just only from Los Banos. Allah says in Surah chapter number 40 verse number 60. You asked me and I will answer for you. You can ask from Allah subhanaw taala anything, even if it be a small thing or a big thing, no problem. You can ask Allah subhanaw taala anything.

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

And furthermore, we should ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

with humbleness and humility.

00:07:14--> 00:07:40

that's point number three. Point number four. When we ask Allah subhanaw taala we should ask with conformed hope that inshallah Allah is going to answer a supplication. Number five, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala with fear, we should ask without fear of Allah subhanaw taala. Number six, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala with extreme loneliness that inshallah belongingness and you'll answer a prayer.

00:07:41--> 00:07:49

Besides the six points, there are some additional things which are important. When it presents applicants, it's preferable. For example,

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

a person should preferably be involved

00:07:54--> 00:08:08

in abortion, if he can even supplicate without being able to do but if he's like a person is in prayer. It's preferable that he's in Voodoo. Point number two, it's preferable that he's facing the Kaaba. Why supplicating loads not a fourth.

00:08:09--> 00:08:37

When number three, he should repeat this application, it's preferable to repeat as much as possible. And point number four, he should ask Allah subhanaw taala but single mindedness and with longings as a beloved Prophet was a lesson said it's mentioned in a series of tirmidhi number 3479 that the beloved partners lesson said that a person should ask Allah subhanaw taala with single mindedness

00:08:38--> 00:08:54

and inshallah Allah will answer his prayers. And Allah subhanaw taala does not like a person who asks with his heart, when it is toying with trifles things, heart is not in one place.

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

So these are some of the tickets of a person sampling in the last minute,

00:09:01--> 00:09:29

which is Dr. zakia, regarding the aspects of etiquette so of course you've had, you've added some important points now, and that's very useful. What about the the time and the place of supplication does that matter? As far as the person is concerned, he can supplicate to Allah subhanho wa Taala any demo that any time of the night 24 hours of the day, but there are some times which are preferred. For example, immediately after the obligatory prayers,

00:09:30--> 00:09:38

for example, especially the day of Juma when a person is fasting, especially when he's breaking is fast.

00:09:40--> 00:09:44

And when a person is praying in the studio,

00:09:45--> 00:09:51

also in the late hours of night, and the Beloved Prophet masala Simpson.

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

It's mentioned in say Muslim

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

added number 165.

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

The Beloved Prophet Musa lucidum said that there is an R during the night

00:10:07--> 00:10:15

in which they will not be a Muslim, who will ask for the good without Allah subhanaw taala granting it

00:10:16--> 00:10:26

That means there is an R which Allah subhanaw taala whatever the Muslim us supplicates, Allah will grant for the Beloved Prophet said, it's mentioned in, say, Muslim,

00:10:27--> 00:10:49

added number 167 that Allah subhanho wa Taala descends to the lowest heaven after one third of the night is over. And then he says, I'm your Lord, I'm your Lord. Is there anyone who's there to supplicate to me? And I will answer him, is there anyone to beg?

00:10:50--> 00:10:55

And I began to trip. Is there anyone that requires forgiveness, and I will forgive him?

00:10:56--> 00:11:44

So one of the good times is during the late hours of night, well, as Mara descends, and as this continues and says, that, Allah continues asking these questions till the dawn breaks. So one of the good times to supplicate is the late hours of night, just before dawn, so let's get up and make sure does that mean? The last hours of the night meaning like, which offer late one third or the middle third of the night, and I find the places concerned again, a person can supplicate in any place. As a beloved popular philosopher said, it's mentioned in cybrary one one, in the book of Salah Hadith number 438, that Allah subhanaw taala made for me and the believers, the full earth as a place to

00:11:44--> 00:12:00

pray, the full Earth is a place where you can meet Allah subhanaw taala. But in spite, there are certain places that if you supplicate in the mosque is preferably and amongst the mosques, there is no better mosque than the main The first is the mantra

00:12:01--> 00:12:17

debate Allah and the second is the most of them have been Medina Mashallah. I wish we could be there now, Dr. Zakir inshallah later on? Does the situation. All the circumstances of the supplicant

00:12:18--> 00:12:38

have any bearing on whether or not a light accepts the door as I mentioned earlier, that the situation or circumstance he is in if you ask Allah subhanaw taala, he gets applicate Allah subhanaw taala. But there are certain situations which are preferable. For example, when a person is fasting,

00:12:40--> 00:12:45

when a person is traveling, when a just ruler, when he's applicants,

00:12:46--> 00:12:53

or just a mom, or a father is applicants for his son or daughter, or a person who has halaal earnings.

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

And its applicants or it can be a person who prays Institute

00:13:01--> 00:13:08

as a beloved prophet Muslim said, as mentioned, say hadith of Timothy, in the book of supplication, Hadith number

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

3598. The Prophet said, the prayer of three people is never rejected.

00:13:16--> 00:13:33

Number one is a just ruler or Imam. Number two, a person who is fasting, especially when he breaks as fast. And number three is an oppressed person. And someone has to decode earlier of Allah hackie Hadith number 69 three, where the Prophet said

00:13:34--> 00:14:19

the prayer of three people is never rejected a father when he prays for his child, a fasting person, especially when he breaks his past and a traveling person when he please. So the idea to the partners restaurant the other time, which are preferred in a positive supplicates as compared to others. Thank you, Dr. Zakir. And now we'll move to the next important point. Why is it that some people that often when you're speaking to people, they say, Well, my daughter hasn't been answered, you know, this is a common statement by the Muslim brothers and sisters you meet around the place, why is it that certain supplications perhaps are not answered? There are certain criteria

00:14:20--> 00:14:55

that are required and many a time this application is rejected because point number one, maybe the earning is haram, what are the things around maybe the earnings they he's driving all his lifestyle? Maybe his business around maybe involved in Riba usury interest, you may be dealing in a business which involves bribing, maybe dealing in a business which involves lying, cheating, etc. All these things which are allegedly haram things. That is the reason it is one of the major reasons my supplication does not answer. Number two, maybe he is oppressing someone is

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

causing oppression to another human being

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Number three, he may not be enjoining what is good and may not be forbidding what is wrong which is a fourth in Islam.

00:15:07--> 00:15:37

And there are some other criteria required for a supplication be accepted and that is the reason why most of them are rejected. One is that we should not say that, Oh ALLAH forgive me if you please, or Allah bless me if you please or, or Allah, Grant me sustenance, if you please, because a beloved prophet masala salami said it's mentioned in say Buhari, one number nine, in the book of tawheed Hadith number 7477.

00:15:38--> 00:16:04

Where the Prophet said that do not supplicate do not pray by saying that Oh ALLAH forgive me if you wish. Or Allah grant me mercy if you wish, or Allah give me from a bountiful wish. Because Allah subhanaw taala he does what He wills and you cannot command him, saying such things is totally wrong, which many people do which is a big mistake that there is in supplication unanswered.

00:16:05--> 00:16:23

Furthermore, people many a time they give names to Allah subhana wa Taala, which Allah never mentioned in the Quran, neither the Prophet used in the Hadith to call a last minute Allah attributes and names, which are not given by line reversal. That is totally wrong by supplicating.

00:16:24--> 00:17:08

Furthermore, many people when they supplicate they add on many names and many things. For example, they say that please forgive my father, my grandfather, my great grandfather, my mother, my grandmother, my great grandmother, man Gell Mann to keep on you know, that becomes big list. Instead of that it's preferable to be brief and say that, please forgive my family or please, for your marriages, or my brothers and sisters in Islam. That's sufficient. And one of the other mistakes that people make is they normally supplicate very loudly, you know, very loud supplicate. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah of chapter seven was come 55 that asked to Allah subhanho wa Taala with

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

humility and privacy.

00:17:10--> 00:17:21

Unless the next verse in Surah, chapter seven, verse 56, that call to Allah with fear and loneliness. So, these are the basic mistakes that people make when they supplicate And furthermore,

00:17:23--> 00:17:49

many a time, when we ask something from Allah subhanaw taala we may follow all the things but alas, man does not answer our prayers. Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was number 216. That you may dislike a thing which may be good for you. And you may like a thing which may not be good for you, Allah knows and you do not know. There may be a situation where a Muslim may pray to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanaw taala give me a motorcycle a BMW.

00:17:51--> 00:18:17

I want a BMW 1000 cc and the lead has not undersea spear. Because Allah knows that if Allah gives him a BMW, he will go fast, he may have accidentally fractured his leg. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, but not answering his prayer is actually answering him. So Allah subhanaw taala is the Knower of the unseen of the future firma like a thing which may not be good for you. Allah knows and you do not know what

00:18:19--> 00:18:27

that means. The next question is very appropriate. So would you now tell the viewers some authentic do hours which are good for them,

00:18:28--> 00:18:39

they can make in this month of mercy, there are hundreds of the average authentic. And if we can refer to the book, fortification of Muslim through this applications,

00:18:41--> 00:19:20

from the Quran and authentic hadith, it's a book published which has more than $100 I think 129 to be precise. I just mentioned a couple of them from the Quran and had the sincere request is that the most general dua which is there in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter two, verse number 201 is Ravana Athena feduni estado filati Huston Ferdinand Sabina, oh my lord, give us the good in this world and the hereafter and save us from the torment of hellfire. This is the gender war, which is general and the best awareness that was given in the Quran. And that was the Quran the best because this is the words of Allah subhanaw taala himself.

00:19:22--> 00:19:43

Allah says in Surah chapter number three was the mate Rabbana Allah to the fluvanna. But if habla Milan kurama in the control hub, which means all Lord, let not our hearts deviate after thou has guided us and grant us mercy from the bounty For Thou art the grantor of bounties.

00:19:45--> 00:19:54

The dua which always making the starting of any lecture, which is asking for help for last monitor which you can do in the beginning to speech or when you're doing something which is very difficult

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

is it was musalla made when Allah subhanaw taala asked musallam then go

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

Give the message to Iran. So it's mentioned in sort of chapter 20 verse number 2528 rubbish very sadly, very seldomly one or the other Melissa Neff, Kali, which means oh my lord, expand my breath for me and make my task easy for me and remove the impediment which is in my speech, so that they will understand me and you know masala Salaam, you're the stammer. And as many people are aware that even I began my childhood, I was a stammer. And even now, sometimes, that is the reason I read this door at the beginning of every talk. So musala salaam, asked at the last minute Allah to remove the impediment from a speech and furthermore, so that they will understand me and there is a barrier

00:20:43--> 00:21:00

many a time between you and the person whom you're giving the message. So we prayed last minute Allah made that barrier removed, therefore, before every talk, I supplicate to that the audience if there is a barrier between the audience and myself, it is removed. These are just food was from the forum. There are several authentic duels even from the audit.

00:21:02--> 00:21:19

The audit intimately, as well as safely been with the Prophet said that anyone who says sumangala will be hung D which means Glory be to Allah and praise be to Allah. Then Allah subhana wa Taala will plant a date tree for the person in paradise.

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

The other this is the mentioned in

00:21:23--> 00:21:28

say Muslim book of Hadith number 6509.

00:21:29--> 00:21:41

Where the beloved partners Rossum said that anyone who says subarna lava byham de la DB to Allah and praise bitrum if you mentioned 100 times, there's nothing more excellent for him.

00:21:42--> 00:21:44

On the day of judgment on the dev resurrection,

00:21:45--> 00:21:55

nothing better than that. Except someone who say similar words or someone will say something better. A similar Hadith mentioned in say Buhari word number eight,

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

number 6405.

00:22:00--> 00:22:15

Where the beloved partner xlsm said that anyone who says sumana lava byham de good to be to Allah and praise be to Allah 100 times his sins will be forgiven, even if his sins are equal to the form of the sea.

00:22:17--> 00:22:25

And there are various authentic hadith it also says in say Muslim, Haddad, number 749, that when you hear the call of the model,

00:22:26--> 00:22:41

then you have to pray and say that I testify that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala and he has got no partners, and prophet masala Salam in the slave and messenger of Allah subhanaw taala and I'm pleased with my lord

00:22:43--> 00:22:50

who is Allah subhanaw taala and I'm pleased with my messenger masala Salaam. And I presume that in Islam, anyone who says this, his sins will be forgiven,

00:22:51--> 00:23:10

that are very sadly for example, after the soul obligated prayers, he says someone Allah is Al Hamdulillah is allowed but 100 times, then your sins will be forgiven. There are other added, like after the obligatory prayer they say allama de Salamanca, Salaam

00:23:11--> 00:23:42

Alaikum. And in traveling, when we bought any vehicle, any plane, any car, etc, do I have it a profit I said that subarna and Lizzy sacral and a hazama panella mccreaney we're in a lot of minimoon Caliban. So these were just a few samples of the authentic to us from the Quran and the Hadith. Just a second, as promised, cutting short the interview phase to allow for viewers questions on the topic. If you don't mind that is

00:23:44--> 00:23:55

we will now address some very important questions from the viewers on the topic. Now, question one from one of the viewers, the meaning of allas fuddle.

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

When we say

00:23:58--> 00:24:22

Oh Allah, I asked to give me from your grace fuddle Does it mean that we are precisely speaking about wealth, the word fabu actually means the grace or the favor of Allah subhanaw taala for those of Allah subhanaw taala but literally the word fuddle it means surplus.

00:24:23--> 00:24:59

It means that you're giving something to someone without any payment. And when we say is the father of Allah subhanaw taala like we say hard I mean Firstly, Robbie, this is by the fall of Allah subhanaw taala This is by the grace and favor philosophy not Allah. It means that the person receiving it, he actually does not deserve it. And Allah subhana wa Taala out of his mercy and grace, have given all these things. So when we say it is because of for the love Allah subhanaw taala we are actually telling that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

has given us all this good things. It may be the well not to be wealth. It can be a good house, it can be a car, it can be whatever thing he's given out of His grace and mercy. And we actually do not deserve any of this. It's only because of his grave that we have got it. So this is actually understanding that to show that we actually don't deserve all these things. And Allah subhanaw taala out of his mercy and grace, because of being kind to his servants and slaves, he's given all these things. And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah hell, chapter number 16 was the min 61, that if Allah subhanho wa Taala, had to punish each of the human beings for wrongdoing, they would not be a single

00:25:44--> 00:26:02

living creature on the face of different so all this will do the follow of Allah subhanaw taala the mercy of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala. The second question posed by one of our viewers, Dr. Zakat is what exactly is meant by the meaning of the word lamb

00:26:03--> 00:26:10

translated here as I believe small faults, in the verse of Surah najem.

00:26:11--> 00:26:25

The words in the Quran in surah najem, chapter number 53, verse number 31, and 32 melasma that says, that to Allah belongs everything heavens in the earth, Allah subhanaw taala has created everything in the heavens in the earth,

00:26:26--> 00:26:27

and

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

he gives to every evil act according to the deeds

00:26:33--> 00:26:39

and He rewards every good act according to the best.

00:26:40--> 00:26:47

And Allah subhanaw taala. If a person avoid the major sins, and the shameful deeds, except the

00:26:48--> 00:27:00

transmitted a small force, Allah subhanaw taala, forgive him. Now there is a difference of opinion among the scholars, as far as what is the meaning of this Arabic word Lama.

00:27:01--> 00:27:07

If you read a debris, one, number two, page number 527.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

It says that, according to most of the celebs,

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

they said that llama

00:27:15--> 00:27:21

it means anything done only once, even if it's the major sin. And this was the view of

00:27:23--> 00:27:29

Abu huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, my dad, my love, mercy on him, and so on and so forth. But if you read

00:27:30--> 00:27:46

Toby, volume 17, page number 71. There it says that when we say Musab, he says that lamb means a thought which comes into your mind once and goes with many will start with come then goes away.

00:27:48--> 00:27:51

According to Al Hassan dibny. Further,

00:27:52--> 00:27:57

he says that llama means forbidden glands that you give once

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

unintentionally,

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

without intention, but if you give a second glance, then it's the same.

00:28:04--> 00:28:15

As our beloved Prophet said, the first dance is forgiven, the second is prohibited. So if it's the first glance, without intention, then it comes into the small sin, Solomon.

00:28:16--> 00:28:17

And for the freed in

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

debris one, number two,

00:28:21--> 00:28:23

page number five to six and five to seven.

00:28:25--> 00:28:40

Some of the scholars they say that Lama means the sins done by the Muslims, before they accepted Islam at that time, in the days of jalur, in the ignorance which Allah will forgive all the sins, this is among

00:28:41--> 00:29:08

because when the non Muslim who she used to tell those who became Muslims, that these still used to do yesterday, and now you say it's a sin, so this was was revealed. So in chapter 53, verse 31, I do saying that stay away from the major sins and shameful deeds and what is the llama means the passing they do Allah will forgive. But according to most of the scholars, the majority scholars they say that llama means minor sense of moral force.

00:29:09--> 00:29:21

And further, if you read the view of Mr. Moraga. He says that lump sum means small minuses. And that of say Bukhari

00:29:22--> 00:29:49

one number eight item a 6243. We have near Bassman la VPS at him, he says that he does not know the meaning of Lama except what he heard from Abu huraira. I'm in love with him, who says that the Messenger of Allah said that every son of Adam has his share of adultery. And he does it inevitably. The adultery of the eyes is a person giving a gift which forbidden, the NLT of the tongue is to speak

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

and what is in man's desire, his own wishes, and then his private part will either confirm or deny

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

So, there is a difference of opinion as far as the word lemon is concerned. And further if you read according to Mr. manavi

00:30:08--> 00:30:13

he says that lava means what a person intends to do but does not do.

00:30:14--> 00:30:56

A person thinks or doing, it does not do means going to exact but does not do, these are small sins. Furthermore, there are scholars they say these are specific motions, but according to prove to be point number 17, page number 70. That llama means minor sins or small force which Allah subhanaw taala inshallah forgive and they have cross reference or certainly sir chapter four was limited even that Allah subhanaw taala. As long as you stay away from major sins, you forgive your sponsors. I think that's a very comprehensive answer Dr. Zakir sokola head, I'm sure the brother or sister will take adequate knowledge from that answer to implement some changes in his or her life. inshallah,

00:30:56--> 00:31:05

let's move on to another section of questions regarding the month of repentance, which we didn't have time to answer last time out.

00:31:06--> 00:31:32

Question one, is it permitted in supplication to negotiate with Allah subhanho wa Taala? The question is, he goes on to say, for example, ask Allah to grant me something or forgive me and take something else away from me instead, like my health, for instance, when we pray to Allah subhanaw taala we have to remember that Allah subhanaw taala has mercy is beyond limits,

00:31:34--> 00:31:58

His mercy, His grace, we cannot limit the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala we cannot try and negotiate on either Can we ask Allah subhanaw taala to hit in the punishment, or you know, that you give me this good thing and take this away? As we were negotiating, we should realize that Allah subhanaw taala is the most bountiful and most merciful. And Allah says in the Quran in surah, Chapter 40, verse number 60, you asked me and I will answer your prayer.

00:31:59--> 00:32:05

Allah further says in Surah Nisa, chapter four, verse number 147, that what will Allah gain by a punishment?

00:32:07--> 00:32:47

If you believe, and if you are grateful, that means it's not worth negotiating Allah subhanaw taala what we want to ask him, we cannot barter with him because he's so merciful. In fact, it will be our loss. If you do that. And that remind me of a bit of a Muslim volume four book of Dekker. How did number 6901 that was masala salam, he goes to one of the Muslims who is sick, and he goes to see him and the person is very sick. And he says, f Ebola the chicken parmesan Sallam asked him that, did you ask for something? Or did you beg Allah for something?

00:32:48--> 00:32:57

The person says, Yes, I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that to hasten my punishment? What I'm going to get an error. Let me have it in this world.

00:32:58--> 00:33:39

And then Alas, messenger says that you don't have the forbearance to bear the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala In fact, you should have asked robina atina fyndoo Nia has Natasha phylloxera team has the token as a beginner. Therefore, I quoted earlier that Oh Lord, give us the good in this world and the hereafter and save us from the torment of hellfire. Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the Mattoon in one and after prophet masala Salaam prayed for him, then that Muslim became Alright. So we should always realize that the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala is beyond limits to whatever may be a sin, whatever may be the thin we have committed. We can always seek Allah's

00:33:39--> 00:34:30

forgiveness. And he's most forgiving, Most Merciful? No, we have to be very careful. What we ask Allah subhana wa Taala for the second question regarding Ramadan, the month of repentance is question which says, am I allowed to ask for the forgiveness of the sins of other people in my personal supplications? If I may, then how should I do so? It is not that you can. It is recommended that when you pray, you should pray for other believing Muslims, other Muslim brothers and sisters, it's mentioned in several places. And it further mentioned the Quran in surah, Mohammed chapter number 47 was 19. He said I for forgiveness for yourself, and the believing men and women. That

00:34:30--> 00:34:35

means for your self forgiveness, as well as forgiveness for the believing men and women.

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

And there's a door of new Allah salam, Prophet nor insert a new chapter number 71 verse number 28. It says that Noah, peace be upon him, he prayed to Allah subhanaw taala that Forgive me, my parents and those who enter my house in faith. Forgive me, my parents and those who enter my house in faith and believing men and women.

00:35:01--> 00:35:04

And a beloved prophet masala Salah it's mentioned in hadith of

00:35:05--> 00:35:23

Timothy, I did number 3385 that the Prophet masala Salaam, whenever we used to ask forgiveness for others first used to start with himself that forgive me and then say, forgive my Muslim Brothers, sister etc. But you have to be careful. You cannot ask forgiveness

00:35:24--> 00:35:33

for the unbelievers for the mistakes for Allah says in the Quran in Surah Tauba chapter nine, verse number 113

00:35:34--> 00:35:52

that it is not befitting for the prophet and for the believing men and women to ask forgiveness for the pagans, was supposed to partner with Allah subhanaw taala even if they be awkward, and kin, for those who you know, are surely going to go to the hellfire.

00:35:53--> 00:36:13

But you may ask for other things you can ask for the help for of unbeliever, dinar for the well for an unbeliever. That's perfectly fine. The best way you can do for the machine if unbeliever is a dire with a beloved partner for less than him said it's mentioned in hadith of

00:36:15--> 00:36:30

Timothy number 3681 where the Beloved Prophet said that out of the two Omar's Malaga that one Omar and Omar bin Khattab Milla be pleased with him, Allah gave him a die and accepted Islam. So you can always ask for Daya.

00:36:32--> 00:36:38

unbelievers that is the best way I can do for them. So hon Allah, May Allah give my mother a die in that case?

00:36:40--> 00:36:40

shall look

00:36:41--> 00:36:53

up to Zack you next question is, is repentance accepted? If the HUD punishment is not carried out,

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

on a person,

00:36:56--> 00:37:06

as I mentioned earlier, that a person should realize that the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala, His mercy and grace is in abundance. And if you commit a crime,

00:37:07--> 00:37:50

if it involves some other people, then you have to restore the property back. If you have Rob didn't give the wealth back, for taking something from someone give it back. But if it is between you and Allah subhanaw taala, a person should never be dissatisfied, he should never think that Allah will not forgive whatever sin he may commit, let it be the biggest sin. If it depends, sincerely, as we mentioned, last episode, Allah will forgive anything, but if he had done some harm to some other human being, then he should try and undo it. And Allah says in the Quran in surah Furqan, chapter number 25, verse number 68. And as for those who do not invoke with Allah, any other God, or do not

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

take any life,

00:37:52--> 00:38:17

of any other human being, unless for just cost, or do not indulge in adultery, and for those who do it, for them, there is a punishment. Now that continues in the next verses, in sort of for current chapter 25, verse number 70, I for those who believe and repent, and do righteous deeds, Allah subhanaw taala will change the evil thing that he has done, the evil deeds he has done to good.

00:38:18--> 00:38:36

So that's the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. So as far as the penalty is concerned, if it is the person who himself knows that he has done a sin, for example, if you are in adultery, so you should repent to Allah subhanaw taala and ask for forgiveness, it is between him and Allah subhanaw taala.

00:38:38--> 00:38:38

And

00:38:39--> 00:39:21

it's not required that he should tell to the others, because if it's told, then that punishment would be there, and as I mentioned earlier about the case of the woman from China, who told Allah messenger, she had an adultery and she was pregnant. And the Prophet said that come later on and she came later on after she gave birth to a child, and she was drawn to them. They the example I gave of my pneumonic on nodded off, say, Muslim, world number three, number 4205, which means ignore Malik metalloproteases him, he just allows messenger, that Prophet purify me alarms and he says, go under forgiveness, again comes back and says, all love messenger please purify me, go away.

00:39:22--> 00:39:59

I love messenger please purify me again goes away for time he comes into the what is your purify from what did he say adultery. And I love this and ask him that. Are you mad? Are you drunk? And then after that, verifying that he will not mad you have not done he had to pass that penalty. But that lungs they say that both these two people that asked for forgiveness and repentance, so May Allah accept the repentance, but further is mentioned at the top of Mata one number two book of punishment, added number 12 the Beloved Prophet Muslim said that stop committing sins

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

major sins etc.

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

And if you commit

00:40:05--> 00:40:42

the diff to conceal it and ask for forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala, you repent and if you disclose it, then we will have to pass that penalty. That means if the sin is known to the Sultan, or the ruler, or to acquire the or to a judge, then it becomes compulsory for that person that he has to pass that penalty, that the stoning to death if he had an adultery, or any other sin, which requires the death penalty, but if it's not known, and the person who has sinned, if it involves some other human being, he should try and undo it. If it is involvement between him and Allah subhanaw taala then he should ask for forgiveness and ask for repentance and should concede. It's

00:40:42--> 00:40:52

not a requirement that the punishment of HUD should be given to the person for repentance, but we have the examples of my family who repented and did not mind

00:40:53--> 00:41:22

being killed for sake Allah subhanaw taala forgive them. And the Prophet said that even if you distribute it in the people of Medina, it will be sufficient for them forgiveness, but as a general rule, it's not a requirement that you have to pass that penalty for repentance. If we expose them the penalties, they are not exposed, conceal it and ask for forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and you repent and inshallah Allah will forgive you in sha Allah, Allah. Okay. So, next question from respected viewer is,

00:41:23--> 00:41:32

I'd like to know, is performing ablution I will do necessary before making Toba

00:41:33--> 00:42:20

and secondly, is Ghazal necessary before pobeda if someone is unclean, as far as the text in the Quran is concerned, I don't know if any Quranic verses or any say Hadith of the Beloved Prophet, we save that ablution or goosal is necessary for October to be made. If you don't repent, repent to Allah subhanaw taala he will do not complicity neither making gurus compulsory. He can ask for the penance directly, except if a person who is a non believer who's a mushy kusakabe when you accept Islam, at that time, he has to be goosal because they're sadita masala Sallam he told to Christ when Asim mela visit him in order to accept Islam that you do goosal so that in a state of purity,

00:42:20--> 00:42:35

otherwise for making Toba etc. Voodoo is not a requirement. Neither is goodwill a requirement. Thank you for that concise answer Dr. Zakir And last but not least shaytan

00:42:36--> 00:42:37

question about Satan.

00:42:39--> 00:43:28

Satan disobeyed Allah only once and he was a cursed. Allah forgives human beings in spite of their disobedience, frequent disobedience. If they repent, will ALLAH forgive a bliss if he repents today, if you didn't look around the story of either Melissa lamb and Iblees is mentioned several times in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter two of chapter number seven. So Rachel chapter number 15. So the calf step number eight in several places, and if realizing the story, the moment or the Melissa lamb added peace be upon him, he realized his mistake, he repented Allah subhanaw taala and allegedly forgive him. And if both of them Allah repeated them on. But if you note the story of a belief,

00:43:29--> 00:43:45

it's mentioned in Surah of chapter number sandras. Number 14, when it believed is a very last one out Allah Allah says that we said to the angels bowed down to Adam, all bogged down in liabilities, except please mentioned Surah Baqarah chapter two, so they are off chapter seven.

00:43:46--> 00:43:59

But instead of repenting to Allah subhanaw taala Emily says in Surah, chapter seven, verse 14, that give me a spite, till the day they are reached up. That means despite me, please delay my punishment.

00:44:00--> 00:44:20

You may despite and see what I do, he challenges the last one out Allah, Allah challenge you. So Allah says in Surah, chapter seven, verse number 18, he gives them respect and says that all those women who follow you, I will fill Hell with all of you. And as far as Emily's repenting

00:44:21--> 00:44:28

here, the question hasn't come because Allah says in Surah, Chapter 15, verse 34, that he is the Ecclestone

00:44:29--> 00:44:36

that Allah has the knowledge of the future of the unseen. So Allah knows in advance that this person he will never repent.

00:44:38--> 00:44:41

As Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter 207 and eight, Allah says,

00:44:43--> 00:44:51

Allah bluebeam that Allah has put a seal on the hearts of those people on those carpets, and they will never come to the State Park.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

And similarly we have examples of Allah predicts

00:44:56--> 00:44:57

even about Abu lahab

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

do one of those

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

staunchest enemies of the Beloved Prophet, Allah tells in advance, he reveals

00:45:08--> 00:45:17

the surah Tabitha vilavi, the father of the flame, he was one of the structures and means to the Prophet. And he says that he will never accept Islam

00:45:18--> 00:45:54

and he will burn in hell. It was a prediction. All he had to do to prove the ground wrong was to say that I am Muslim, and see the shadow 10 years he had the posture, he did not do it. So I'll learn you they will never happen. Similarly, Allah subhanaw taala knows that he believes he will never repent. So that the reason he has said that he is to you and about enemy, Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter two was 168 that Yeah, I live in Um, oh, you believe. Be careful of the Courtois to shaytan of the footsteps of the devil, for heat to you isn't about enemy. So with all the verses of the Quran, realize that he believes will never repent. And Allah knows that therefore he is called

00:45:55--> 00:46:18

the avowed enemy of the human being, and he's a cost. So he will never repent. He live off of forgiveness. Well, zakia we've reached the end of our question and answer session. And as we promised the viewers, we answered many questions on the topic of Ramadan, the month of repentance and supplication. Correct.

00:46:19--> 00:46:50

Thank you for reminding me. So brothers and sisters, I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to enlighten your hearts and my heart and Dr. Zakir likes heart with the information that we've given you and ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for us to act on his advice during this holy month of Ramadan. please do join us tomorrow when we will be addressing the topic keum La Jolla and I wish you all the best
