00:00:59--> 00:01:10

Welcome to the show, Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir I'm your host use of chambers and today we will be discussing

00:01:11--> 00:01:19

the topic Ramadan, the month of self improvement and Islam, part two

00:01:21--> 00:02:12

of Zakat as salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh while it was Salam Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Well, Dr. Zakir in the last episode we were mentioning or you mentioned, and I listened to the 70 major sins and we should continue to discuss one by one inshallah a random selection of those. And the first of those today will be the major sin of Xena. So first of all, can you tell me what is the Islamic perspective on Xena? And what is the prescribed punishment in Islam for doing that? Sin Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah ali With ibH me and my bad I was Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillahi r Rahmani Raheem, rubbishy surgery, where psyllium Bri

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

Asana f Gokhale Xena

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

means

00:02:19--> 00:02:31

illegal sexual intercourse. Or when a man and woman are not married, if they have sexual intercourse, it's called Xena. It means sexual intercourse outside the marriage bond.

00:02:32--> 00:02:44

And there's some Sharia its basic aim is to preserve the honor and lineage. That is the reason that illegal sexual intercourse, it is a major sin.

00:02:45--> 00:03:36

And Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in Surah Surah chapter number 17 was number 30. To come not close to Santa, come not close to unlawful sexual intercourse. For it is a shameful deed and evil, opening other routes to evil. Islam has tried its best to protect the honor of the man and the woman. And there are various guidelines given in the Sharia and the Quran Hadith, which prevents a person from coming close to center. Number one is he job has been prescribed. And besides the job for the woman is up for the man also. For the woman, a complete body should be covered the only part that can be seen as the face and the hands up to the wrist. Some scholars say that they should be

00:03:36--> 00:03:36

covered.

00:03:38--> 00:04:16

And Allah says about the hijab Alliance prescribed the job for the man first in the Quran. And then for the woman. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 24 was Timothy say to the believing man that he should lower his gaze and God is modesty. Moment. A man looks at a woman. If any reason thought any unashamed, thought comes in his mind, you should lower his gaze. The next verse speaks about the job for the woman. It says insert a new chapter number 24 was number 31 say to the believing woman that she should lower the gaze and garden modesty and display not a beauty except what appears ordinary off and draw a veil over the bosom and the worst continues. So

00:04:16--> 00:04:24

basically lowering the gaze is very important, which prevents znr to great extent and the punishment

00:04:26--> 00:04:51

for this unlawful sexual intercourse Xena. There are two types of punishments depending upon the type of Xena, Xena can be of two types. Number one is that unlawful sexual intercourse done by an unmarried man and woman. It's called as fornication in English. And if unlawful sexual intercourse is done by a married man or woman. It is called adultery. The punishment for both differs

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 24 was the man to ask for the woman

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

Men who commit fornication. As for the fornicator, beat a woman or a man, flog each with 100 stripes is give them 100 lashes and Let not your heart be moved towards them

00:05:17--> 00:05:32

and let a group of believers witnessed the punishment. That means if any man or woman was not married, if they have unlawful sexual intercourse, the punishment is 100 lashes, flogging them with 100 lashes

00:05:34--> 00:05:53

and as far as punishment for adulterous concern, unlawful sexual intercourse done by a mad man or woman. It's mentioned in say Buhari, woman number eight in the book of food, added number 681 for a man approaches Professor solemn and says that I have committed adultery

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

and the man he bears witness four times that he has committed adultery and the Prophet

00:06:03--> 00:06:10

he ordered that he be punished should be stoned to death because you are the madman. So the punishment for adultery

00:06:11--> 00:06:25

unlawful sexual intercourse done by Mad Men in Islam, it is stoning to death. It's also mentioned say Buhari one number eight in the book of food, added number 6815 and 6816. There was a man who approached the Prophet, Mr. solemn

00:06:26--> 00:07:13

and told him that he had committed unlawful sexual intercourse, he had community center. So the Prophet turned away from again the man or the prophet and bore witness four times that he had committed unlawful sexual intercourse at Community Center. The Prophet asked him that Are you mad? He said no. Prophet asked him Are you married? He said yes to the Prophet ordered that he should be stoned to death. This again proves that for adultery. Zina unlawful sexual intercourse done by madman woman the punishment is stoning to death. It further mentioned say Buhari won number eight, in the book of Hadith number 6819. Those are Jews and the Jews were caught committing adultery, and

00:07:13--> 00:07:29

they're about to the Prophet. The Prophet asked them that in your religion, what is the punishment for adultery? So they said that our priest had innovated that the faces should be black and charcoal. The Prophet said, Get your scripture

00:07:30--> 00:08:05

and show it to me. The men get the Scripture, and it comes with something and then he reads it. So one of the Sahaba says, please remove your hand and the woman hand was removed it was mentioned down there that pleasure to read the debt should be given to a person who commits adultery. So even in the Jewish scripture in relation to Scripture, the punishment for adultery is stoning to death. And the Prophet commanded that both of them the Jew and the Jewish boy should be stoned to death. It's mentioned in say Muslim, more number three, in the back of Hulu. Number 4191.

00:08:06--> 00:08:09

The Prophet said that anyone who commit Zina

00:08:10--> 00:08:22

if an unmarried man or woman come into center, that is to fornication, the punishment is giving 100 lashes and they should be banished for one year.

00:08:23--> 00:08:33

And the Prophet continues and says that anyone who does Zina who's married, and even unlawful sexual intercourse, does adultery

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

if a person is married man or woman, and the punishment is

00:08:39--> 00:08:52

giving them 100 stripes, lashing them 100 times and then sewn into that. So this is a different type of punishment for Xena and it is one of the major sin in Islam and in Alcubierre.

00:08:53--> 00:09:15

Remember Dobby he gives number 10 to the sin, Xena adultery and fornication. Well, Dr. Zakir, I feel that those two punishments are enough to frighten the most stalwart of individuals from Xena May Allah protect us from that that from Islamic country where the punishment not the the non Muslim country

00:09:16--> 00:09:55

throughout the world inshallah, I would be removed inshallah, from the free throw the chance Allah May Allah allow us to bring back that punishment to protect all humanity inshallah. So, could you explain to me what the punishment in Islam is regarding homosexuality? And could you clear up a small issue relating to the so called gay gene, which is scientists are speaking about now, many homosexuals? Consider this as almost a divine right for them to practice homosexuality? Is this correct? Is it genetic? What's your advice? As far as Islamic punishment, almost a child is concerned.

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

Allah says in the Quran and the message

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

Just recently added several verses, talk about homosexuality. Allah says in the Quran in surah

00:10:07--> 00:10:11

chapter number seven, verse number 80, as well as 81.

00:10:13--> 00:10:34

Allah says, He speaks about the story of brutally salam, and Nutella. Sonam says to face people, that, do you practice lewdness, which no one before in the creation had ever done, that we do practice as witness such a thing, which no one in creation had ever done before. And

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

do you lust

00:10:38--> 00:11:02

after men, in preference to woman, that means talking to the men that do run after men have lust for men in preference to woman, a similar message is repeated in sort of uncovered japp number 29 was the majority and remain were routinely solemn. He says to his people, that do you practice lewdness, such that no other people in the creation had ever done before?

00:11:03--> 00:11:09

And do you approach men and cut off highways, again talked about homosexuality,

00:11:10--> 00:11:15

and the punishment that is a gift for such people. As mentioned in

00:11:16--> 00:11:23

sort of hood, chapter number 11, verse number 82. And Allah says that he turns the cities upside down.

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

The city of brotherly salam, Sodom and Gomorrah, it turns this cities upside down.

00:11:30--> 00:11:36

And he brings a hail of brimstone of hard big clay, layer after layer.

00:11:37--> 00:12:05

And as far as punishment for an individual person would come from sexuality. It's mentioned something without warning number three, in the book of food addict, number 4447. With the Prophet Mr. Salim he said that anyone who does the sin of people of Luther Islam should be put to that the person who does it and the person on whom it is done. So homosexuality is forbidden in Islam. And the punishment for homosexuality is that

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

as far as the second part of the question is concerned, that is homosexuality genetic. There was a research done some 1520 years back in the early 90s.

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

where there were a group of scientists who suggested that homosexuality is genetic.

00:12:27--> 00:12:37

Afterwards, when more research was done, it was proven that the research is totally wrong. And the person who first propounded this research himself was homosexual.

00:12:39--> 00:12:48

And there are several articles written against homosexuality being genetic. If you read the article of sixth of April, year 2004.

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

In lifestyle

00:12:53--> 00:13:02

news.com the article written that Bourne Abed talks about homosexuality by Robert Knight.

00:13:04--> 00:13:34

And this was mainly done by a concern of group of American woman who tried to prove that homosexuality is not genetic, because their concern, Robert night, yes, bit of various articles from different scientists, and different people in the field, and prove that homosexuality was not genetic, even coats, Dr. Robert Spitzer, in lifesite news.com, who is the professor of psychiatry, in the Columbia University in USA,

00:13:35--> 00:13:46

he proves that homosexuality is genetic. And in 1973, he removed from the American Psychiatric Association list,

00:13:47--> 00:14:06

which was mentioned that homosexuality is a mental illness, it proved it wrong and removed it from the list. It's not a mental illness. And he did research. And he gave advice to more than 200 people, homosexuals, and after advise many of them left homosexuality. The person who first said that homosexuality

00:14:08--> 00:14:14

was genetic, was dean Hamill, who was from America, National Institute of Health.

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

And he did a research on 40 pairs of homosexuals.

00:14:22--> 00:14:27

And he said that there was a gay gene, which were responsible for homosexuality be genetic.

00:14:29--> 00:14:43

Later on, Dr. George rice, he tried to repeat the experiment of Dean hammer, and he took 52 pairs of homosexuals. But unfortunately, he could not find any gauging.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

And when it was proved that homosexuality was genetic was a fallacy. Then hammer said that, you know, the sample was bigger, therefore they could not find my sample was born and he gave excuses. And later on many scientists and many psychiatrists and many researchers did research

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

And they found it without doubt that homosexuality was not genetic. And even Dr. Alan Sanders of National Institute of Health, the same Institute, where Dean hammer came from, he did research and present the paper on the first of June 1998, in Toronto, in the psychedelic conference, and it proved without doubt that homosexuality was not genetic. So but natural, it can't be genetic and sin cannot be inherited. That's not the concept of Islam. It's a concept of Christianity and other religions. When Islam, no bearer of burden can bear the burden of others. So but natural no sin can be inherited, and neither homosexuality can be inherited

00:15:49--> 00:16:31

Jazakallah hair for clearing that issue up because I'm sure many Muslims who still ponder that issue of the the gay gene which was spoken about more than 10 years ago now is it or slightly less than 10 years ago, 14 years and but it still seems to be a view which is accepted. So Yella preserve a lot of knowledge dova knowledge, they know for sure that it is a fallacy. Doctors actually the next issue we need to bring up is Riba again, one of the major sins and unfortunately, nowadays, many Muslims consider Riba to be completely lawful in this modern world that we live in.

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

What's your advice? according to Quran Sunnah?

00:16:36--> 00:17:13

I do agree that there are many Muslims who consider a bar not to be interest and the thing is lawful. But Riba means anything over and above. It includes usury, the exorbitant interest but It even includes interest because by definition, interest is money earned on money Lent, and user is exorbitant interest whether small or big Riba is haram. It includes interest as well as usury. And Allah subhanaw taala has used the word Riba in the Quran no less than eight times

00:17:14--> 00:17:25

its mission in Surah alleman chapter number three was the 133 Research app number four was number 161 sort of Baccarat chap number two was number 275. It has been used twice.

00:17:27--> 00:17:39

It's even mentioned in Surah Baqarah chapter two verse number 276, as well as sort of Bukhara chapter two verse 278 and 279, where Allah says in these two verses, that give up your demands of Riba of interest of usury,

00:17:41--> 00:18:24

and those who do not give up the demands of Riba take notice of a war from Atlantis resort. That means if you indulge in Riba Allah enter the school will wage a war against you. There are other major sins like having intoxicants having alcohol, drugs, etc. But this besides being a major sin, the ruling is that Allah and as a school will wage a war against you. It is the only verse in the Quran for the only major sin and this will wage a war against you it is rubber. So it is one of the biggest major sins. That is the reason it has been rated in the category number 12 in cabana by mama Dobie mentioned number 12.

00:18:26--> 00:18:31

And as far as the punishment is concerned, it's mentioned a Muslim

00:18:32--> 00:18:47

woman number three How did number 3881 the Beloved Prophet masala Salaam, he cursed those people who accept Riba and give her a BA, doo doo take interest and give interest

00:18:48--> 00:19:00

those recorded as well as the two witnesses, all of them are the same. The Prophet says that all these people are cursed. The person who gives her a bad boss it takes her by the person who records Reba, the person who's a witness

00:19:01--> 00:19:08

all of them are cursed and all of the same level. It further mentioned in Mr. Lackey

00:19:09--> 00:19:12

I did number two to five nine.

00:19:13--> 00:19:36

The beloved partner solo slim said that there are 73 different types of rubber, different degrees of rubber and the lowest one is equivalent to a man doing sinologist mother with the lowest level of rubber or the seventh level is equivalent to a man rexona which is mother and this has a say headed

00:19:38--> 00:19:44

and it's mentioned in Muslim amad for number five, page number two to five also in

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

Jamia

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

Hadith number 33 and five. The beloved partner Saracen said that anyone who takes rebar equivalent to one theorem, it's worse than a man committing Zina three, six times

00:20:01--> 00:20:35

If you take one gram of rubber, it's worse than a man committing Zina three six times. This is the punishment and enormity of sin in Islam. And we see today that most of the Western countries, they are drowned in Riba. Everything is an interest. You take a loan interest, you can take a house on interest in a car on interest, credit card, so everyone, and in this scenario, it makes a poor man more poor.

00:20:36--> 00:20:51

It can make many rich men go bankrupt. Otherwise other people, rich men become more rich. And there are various evils. And I've given a talk on this topic, interest free economic promulgated by the Glorious Quran that has proved all the evils of Riba and we see that today,

00:20:52--> 00:21:06

a man will make more profit, if he has the concept of Islamic business, profit loss sharing, rather than based on interest. That is the reason most of the top companies, the zero debt companies,

00:21:07--> 00:21:25

they don't take loan from the bank, the prefer opening issues and having shares and sharing the profit with the public, the subconscious, and all the top companies that are debt free companies will find that they don't take any loan. So they are working actually on the Islamic concept

00:21:26--> 00:21:34

near las panatela. And I was told to work on the Islamic concept, get rid of Riba the interest of usury as you've called it.

00:21:35--> 00:21:40

Following on from the first question regarding Riba is it permissible

00:21:41--> 00:21:58

for a Muslim to put his savings in an interest or a Riba bearing account or bank for safety purposes, if he or she pays the interest that he earns out? in charity?

00:21:59--> 00:22:44

Most of the scholars they say that if under compulsion, especially if you're a non Muslim country, and for safety reasons, you can keep your money in the interest based conventional bank. But whatever interest you get, you have to give a charity without seeking the reward of Allah, because it's Haram. Most of the scholars say that, but I personally I disagree with them. That's my view. I agree more with the view of shear potami he says that even this is permitted. Because the Quran does not say do not use interest in the Quran with FA do not utilize do not use interest in the vertical side. The Quran says don't involve in Riba don't take don't give. So if you have to give in to it

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

for sale, take from the bank. So disagree with that.

00:22:47--> 00:23:25

If we have to stop the system of Riba, you have to totally ban the system, we can't see they'll put for safety and then I'll take them in and give it indirectly encouraging them. Because the moment you open an account, which has got interest, you assigning and giving them permission, that you're agreeing with interest with that itself is a sin. So last course will be on you, unless the fool will wage a war against you. Because as this question and I say to these people who say that you can put in the bank and giving charity that suppose a deal in drugs and cocaine

00:23:26--> 00:23:38

in brown sugar. And suppose I invest a billion dollars every month I make a profit of billion dollars. And the complete profit I give in charity to the poor people.

00:23:39--> 00:24:10

Allows is it allowed? This is an old Sara method Why go delete drugs cocaine brown sugar Haram. So when dealing in drugs, cocaine brown sugar Haram, ribeye is a bigger Haram. Because if you delete rubber alandra soon the way the water needs to. So when you're giving me permission to keep in the bank and deal with Reba for a bigger sin, surely should give me permission for a smaller sin. So therefore, I disagree. That if they really want to keep for safety, they can very well keep an Islamic bank

00:24:12--> 00:24:25

or as a last resort, they can keep in a current account. There are some accounts in the bank, which are accounts which don't give interest. The call is current account.

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

There's no interest at all in that.

00:24:28--> 00:24:52

That as a last resort again, keep only keep that money which is required for only because I know that being in different countries, like in India and UK, you have to deal with checks etc. So if you're a businessman, keep only that much amount which is required for rolling. Otherwise you can invest it in property in real estate and stuff, whatever it is, and the least if you want for security, you can take a locker and keep hard cash in the bank.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

I know it's foolish, but yet it is better than involving intrabar. At least you'll be safe from Atlantis.

00:25:00--> 00:25:19

Dell Dell vijaywada needs to as a last resort, if you really want only security, take a locker, which will cost there's a few 100 rupees a month or a couple of 1000 rupees a year and a few pounds. If you go to UK data locker, keep your money hard cash declared to the government, no problem but give hard cash

00:25:20--> 00:26:08

if you really want security, but taking rubber and even giving charity because it encourages the system of Riba. I consider that to be Haram. Yeah, I mean, in the UK hamdulillah we do have a few banks now coming up, by the way. So Allah subhanaw taala helped us to encourage those organizations to do non interference greater love multilotto be these organization be on the straight path? I mean, that they're truly interested inshallah. inshallah. The next issue I'd like to ask you about Dr. Zakir is concerning alcohol. What does Islam say about alcohol? Does it prohibit it entirely? Allah says in the Quran in surah majda chapter number five was number 90. Yeah, you listen, or you

00:26:08--> 00:26:31

believe in number camrol Masaru. Most certainly intoxicants and gambling. Well, I'm sober Islam, dedication of stones divination of arrows rich to me. I'm Alicia tan, did a citizen handover first and he will welcome to free who abstain from this handle that may prosper. For Allah says, This is Rich to me, Emily shaytan. It's a Satan handiwork. abstain from that you will prosper.

00:26:32--> 00:26:48

And Mr. Mondavi in his list of the 17 major sins, He puts having alcohol, intoxicants, kamar, having wine, number 19. In the list, and having intoxicants. 11 primary in Christianity.

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

If you read the Bible, it's mentioned in the Book of Proverbs, chapter number 20 was number one, it says that vine is a mocker.

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

It is strong, raging drink. And anyone who deceived he is not wise. Its mission a book of Ephesians chapter number five was number 18. Be not drunk with wine. Unfortunately, we find that none of the Christians and the Jews, they follow the advice given in the Bible unfortunately. And

00:27:20--> 00:27:40

what is the logic? The reason that Islam is prohibited alcohol. Normally in the human being, there is an inhibitory center, this inhibitory center, it prevents a human being from doing things which are illogical and not correct. For example, if a person wants to go to the call of nature,

00:27:41--> 00:28:06

the Liberty center will say that don't do it in a public place. Go to the toilet. Anybody said diversity and liberty center. When a person speaks to the parents, that is that don't be disrespectful to parents. Don't use foul language. So this is the work of any beauty center. When a person is intoxicated. When a person has intoxication has wine have alcohol, they inhibit dissenters in Britain.

00:28:07--> 00:28:21

And he doesn't know what he's speaking. Therefore you find many of them they start cursing, they start doing verbal abuse, you find them saying obscene things, you may find them that they urinate in their own clothes. This is because the Liberty centers rebooted.

00:28:22--> 00:28:27

And if we analyze that alcohol is responsible for many crimes that take place,

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

according to the US Department of Justice 1986 every day, in the year 1986 2713 cases of rape took place. That means every table second one rape is taking place in America in 1986.

00:28:46--> 00:28:52

And the report says that majority of the people who committed rape, they were intoxicated.

00:28:54--> 00:29:03

Furthermore, when American statistics it says that 8% of the Americans, they indulge in incest, having intercourse with a close relative.

00:29:04--> 00:29:22

And it says that every 12% who come across in America that we insist, and majority of them, they enter state of intoxication when they do insist. So we realize that alcoholism besides being bad for the health, it's a cause for many diseases and health wise and even it is a cause for AIDS

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

which has recently cropped up.

00:29:27--> 00:29:35

And there are many people who say that I am a social drinker, and have only one beggar on the intoxicated.

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

When you interview, the alcoholics, all of them when we ask them, they will say the initiative their social drinkers. No alcoholic starts to drink because he wants to become alcoholic. All of them are social drinkers. Later on, they become alcoholics. And if you meet any social drinker who has been drinking for a couple of years, you ask him that how many times they've been intoxicated

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

There'll be several times that have been toxic and with all the power that he has.

00:30:04--> 00:30:24

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Ask to get the only because of the consumption of alcohol.

00:35:04--> 00:35:22

But nowadays, my colleagues, the medical doctors, they say that alcoholism is a disease that tried to pacify that. Don't be rude to the alcoholic. No, don't blame him. alcoholism is a disease. If alcoholism is a disease, it is the only disease that is sold in bottles.

00:35:24--> 00:35:45

It is the only disease that is advertised in the newspapers, in the magazines. on the radio broadcast stations. It's advertised in the satellite channels in the television. It is only a disease that has licensed outlets for its sale. It is only diseased that brings revenue to the government.

00:35:54--> 00:35:57

It is the only disease that are good, no viral or junk cause

00:35:59--> 00:36:41

it's not a disease. As Allah says in Surah majda chapter five, assemble 90 rich to minimally shaytan it is a Satan's handiwork first, and he will allow them to flee who abstained from this handle that may prosper Subhana Allah I think we've got enough reasons to stay very clear of alcohol. All of us all of humanity indeed, is like a locker for the answer. Here Dr. Zakir I would like to know now, next issue, which is to do with slandering and backbiting. Can you tell us the ruling Islamic ruling regarding slandering and backbiting? Allah says in the Quran, instead of Judah, chapter number 49, verse number 12. that do not spy.

00:36:44--> 00:37:08

Avoid spying. For in most cases, spying is a sin. Do not backbite do not speak ill about other people behind the back. Are you ready to eat the flesh of a dead brother? No, you would abhor it. That means if you backbite Allah says in the Quran, it is like eating the flesh of your dead brother. And would you like it? And the answer is no.

00:37:10--> 00:37:10

Eating.

00:37:11--> 00:37:32

Your brother itself is haram. Eating dead meat is a double sin. Even the cannibals with human being they don't eat the dead meat of dawn whether the Quran says that backbiting equivalent to eating the dead middle phone whether it's for the mentioned in say Muslim, Muslim number 400 number six to six, five.

00:37:34--> 00:37:42

Where Beloved Prophet Muslim said that? Do you know what is backbiting? The Saba says Atlanta messenger not the best.

00:37:43--> 00:38:17

The Prophet continues, that anyone who speaks about and then the person behind his back, which he would not like it spoken, that is called as backbiting. So one person interrupts and says, what if what I'm speaking is true? The person does have those false. So the Prophet says that if you speak about someone behind somebody's back, and if it is a truth, it is backbiting. If it's false, it's called a slandering. So both are prohibited backbiting as well as tendering. Both are prohibited.

00:38:19--> 00:38:30

And unless it's says in the Quran, in Surah, Hamza, Chapter 104, was number one violone liquidly homos Attila was a vote to every kind of scandal monger and backbiting.

00:38:32--> 00:38:33

And it's mentioned

00:38:34--> 00:38:48

in the hadith of say Buhari, one, number one, in the book of Voodoo, or the number 216, musallam, was passing near a graveyard. And he heard that two of the Muslims

00:38:50--> 00:38:57

they were crying and mourning, because the punishment that they were having in the grave, the Prophet says that,

00:38:58--> 00:39:02

do you know for what reasons or the crime

00:39:03--> 00:39:16

service is no. So it says one, because he never used to be careful about his urien that you have to be careful protect oneself from one theory and the other one, because it should make enemy between the people.

00:39:18--> 00:39:23

So based on the verse of the Quran in the did backbiting and sending both the primary

00:39:24--> 00:39:38

Okay, I think that's pretty clear. Thank you very much Dr. Zakir. So regarding the local government have the mail in particularly the mail is it haram for man to wear that

00:39:39--> 00:39:46

below the ankle, even if that person isn't wearing it out of pride or arrogance,

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

the Arabic word

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

used when a lower garment is below the ankle. It's bad whether it's your lower garment or your towser or your

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

Is our

00:40:02--> 00:40:51

auto. If it goes below the ankle, it's called as is bad it may touch the floor or receive on the floor. All these are a sin. And unfortunately unfortunately many Muslims that are the most of them, they don't pay any importance to this major sin. And they think it's all right. Most of the Muslims they were the top of the below the ankle, many of them at all the touches the floor, it even feel the floor. It's mentioned in, say Buhari one, number seven in the book of this, added number 5787, the beloved partner Saracen said that is our that goes below the ankle, that part will burn in fire. In the lower government, whether it be the towser if it goes below the ankle, that part will burn in

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

hellfire.

00:40:53--> 00:41:29

It further mentioned in cyber hurry worm number seven, Book of this elite number 570 did. The beloved partner Sarah slim said that Allah will not look at the person on the Day of Resurrection, a person with a lower garment below the ankle and walks in pride. So when the lower garment below the ankle is prohibited, it's like a sign of pride and arrogance. And irrespective whether a person feels proud or not, it's haram and it's mentioned sooner not without more number three in the book of this hadith number 4083. It says that if you're low garment

00:41:31--> 00:41:34

or your shirt, or your turban

00:41:35--> 00:41:41

if they go below the ankle, or tilt on the ground, then I love not look at you on the Day of Resurrection.

00:41:43--> 00:42:06

So it's bad. low down below the ankle is a great sin. And people who say that if we wear it without arrogance and pride, it's permitted. This is the wrong thinking is the fallacy. Imagine as the Muslim Salaam Muslim slum told many Sahaba that way your lower garment above the ankle and all of them will

00:42:07--> 00:42:47

imagine if we say that we can keep the lower garment or towels or below the ankle. If you don't have pride. We are trying to indicate that we are better than the Saba and the Prophet today the Sahaba that put it was above the ankle whether you were above the ankle, and we see that we did not do it. And if we think that if you do it without pride, it's not wrong. So we are trying to insinuate that we are better than the Saba which is totally wrong. So that is the reason is bar lower in the lower government below the ankle. With Peridot pride is haram with pride is a bigger sin because we're doing another sin during the government. Plus, you're proud and arrogant for WC

00:42:48--> 00:43:01

Okay, thanks for the answer Dr. Zakir Dr. zakat. Next question, how does Islam reprimand a person who bears false witness in a court of law as far as

00:43:02--> 00:43:41

bearing false witness is concerned? Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Noor kept number 24 was number four. As for those who lay a false allegation against the chastity of a woman, and if you cannot produce four witnesses, then he should be lashed with dainty lashes. That means he should be flogged with 80 lashes and his witness should not be ever considered in future. So this is a punishment for a person who gives a false witness and further mentioned in SIBO hurry. Number three book of witnesses, this number two, six FIFO

00:43:43--> 00:43:58

where the beloved partner silom as they will inform you of the greatest of the great sins, we said yes or messenger of Allah. No Saracen replies that number one joining God's Allah number two

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

being disrespectful to parents, and later on declining, he said number three is very false witness is a great sin. It's mentioned something without verb number three

00:44:13--> 00:44:26

added number three five into beloved partners Hello Salim said that after offering Salah. He turns around and he says that bearing false witness is equivalent

00:44:27--> 00:44:54

to attributing a partner to Allah subhanaw taala these are the hosts Rossum says that bearing false witness is nearly as good as Shrek so that is the reason it is one of the major sin in sakala hair Dr. Zach if the answer Dr. Zakir How does Islam honor the chest T of a woman. There are many verses in the Quran in surah D which speak about the gesture to the woman. A beloved partner Salah Salem said it's mentioned Mr. Ahmed

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

are number one or the number 1661. The beloved partner cillessen said

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

That the woman who prays five times, fast in the month of Ramadan, preserve the chastity and

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

takes care of the husband that obedient to the husband, she can enter Paradise by any gate. She can robe any gate into paradise. That means a woman whose job is to offer vitam Salah foreigner month of Ramadan, and takes care of her husband, husband will enter Paradise. It further mentioned in the Glorious Quran in surah, chapter number 24 verse number 23 and 24 that anyone who lays an allegation against the chastity of a woman even have a grievous penalty in this world, and the hereafter, and you put into hell, and on the Day of Judgment, his tongues, his limbs, and parts of his body, it bear witness against him. It's mentioned in Surah chapter number 24 was number four that anyone lays

00:45:55--> 00:46:09

a false allegation against the chastity of woman and cannot produce for witnesses, he will be given a punishment of flogging by 80 lashes. In future, his estimate vividness will be accepted.

00:46:10--> 00:46:44

And it's mentioned say Buhari volume number four. I did number 2766. The beloved partner cillessen said that Do you know the seven grievous sins? The people said Allah messenger knows the best. And he replies number one, joining Gods with Allah subhanaw taala. Number two practicing sorcery and black magic. Number three, murder. Number four, eating grubba interest number five, eating orphans property unlawfully. Number six, showing your back to the enemy in the battlefield. And number seven,

00:46:46--> 00:46:58

laying in allegation or slandering the gesture to a woman with a true believer. So it's a grave sin to lay an allegation against Saturday and Allah subhanaw taala and the Quran predicted yesterday for me.

00:46:59--> 00:47:21

Well, the last question today will be regarding horoscopes. And can you give the Islamic ruling on a person who consults astrology charts or horoscopes on a daily basis or weekly basis or at all. As far as astrology and fortune telling is concerned. Nowadays, it's very common

00:47:23--> 00:47:47

in the world that we have in the newspapers, they will speak about stars about Capricorn and Libra and various signs and we find that many of you believe in it. If anyone believes in the stars and the science fortunetelling astrology, it's as good as shark it's called a mushrik. And a person will read some entertainment in a minute time it comes in the paper and we were just blindsided in me, then he is a sinner yet

00:47:49--> 00:48:22

because a beloved Muslim said it's mentioned it's a Buhari word number two, number one through three it also lost after offering Vijay Salah he turns around and he says that Allah says that some of the people they are believers in me and some are disbelievers in me. Those who believe that it rained because of Allah subhana wa Taala they believe in me and the disbelieve in the staff and those who believe that it drained because of the staff. They believe in the star and that is believe in me.

00:48:23--> 00:48:24

It further mentioned in

00:48:26--> 00:48:44

Muslim Amman volume number 200 number 9536. The beloved partner masala Sallam said that if a person goes to a fortune teller and a soothsayer, and believed in him, he had this believed in homosassa. They believed in me and further mentioned, it's a Muslim.

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

Model number

00:48:47--> 00:48:49

four, number 5540.

00:48:50--> 00:48:55

Beloved posh masala Sallam said that anyone who goes to a diviner that's rough

00:48:57--> 00:49:32

and believes in him, his prayer will not be accepted for 40 nights. So therefore fortune telling and astrology are condemned in the Quran. Allah says in Surah chapter number five verse number 90 yeah you live in Amman. Oh you believe in number control my sorrow most certainly intoxicants and gambling, well unsolvable Islam, dedication of stole diminished of arrows, rich to minimally shaytan these are Satan's handiwork. First, enable them to abstain from it, that you will prosper to fortune telling you the Satan's handiwork after everything from it, so that we can prosper takasaki once again,

00:49:33--> 00:49:59
