May the peace, the mercy and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be on all of you.
Welcome to the show, Ramadan addict with Dr. Zakir I'm your host use of chambers and today we will be discussing the topic, Ramadan, the month of self improvement and Islam. Part Three
Dr. Zaki Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh walakum wa salaamu alaikum berkata zakia. We've come to the next episode regarding the topic, self improvement in Islam in the month of Ramadan. And this is such a wonderfully large topic. So, Dr. Zakir in the last two episodes, of course, we covered the 70 major sins, and we were urging them in this month of Ramadan, the month of self improvement and this law to recognize those mistakes and change them. And now, inshallah, let's hope that I've taken some note of that and the viewers have as well.
What I'd like to concentrate on Now, during this episode is the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how we can best implement these wonderful guidelines. Beloved Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given us in this month of self improvement and Islam. So first of all, could you explain to us what is Sunnah? What does it mean? And how many types of Sunnah are there?
100 Allah, wa salatu wa salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah srbiji me and my bad also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbish Elisa de Westphalia Marie weidler melissani f kokkola. The word solna literally means the way
or the custom. And the Sunnah of the Prophet means the way of the prophet or the prophets tradition, the word sooner it indicates and means
the things the deeds and the approval of the prophet in the span of 23 years, during his prophethood it means what the prophet said, what the Prophet did, and what the prophet approved in the span of 23 years during his prophet Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet can be divided into three types.
The first is
Sunita Kali, that means the sayings of the Prophet The second is Sunita faily, that means
the actions of the Prophet and the third is Sonata query, which means the approval of the Prophet. So basically, these three types of soon other in three different categories. Okay, that seems very straightforward. But could you perhaps for the benefit of the viewers, and myself, if cite some examples of each of the different categories? You've mentioned, the example of the first type of sadhana that's sewn into Kali, the sayings of the Prophet.
For example, Muslim said, in say, Buhari, Well, number one, in the book of vaadin, added number 631. The Prophet said, Pray, as you see me praying. This is a command of the Prophet it's a saying of the Prophet and it is the duty of Muslim that we should follow it. The example of the second type of Sunnah. So not a fairly, that is, the deeds of the Prophet is mentioned in for example, say Buhari are number one block of other
added number 76.
It says that
the subunits whenever I saw the profit
assala used to raise his hand up to the shoulders.
And then when he said the duck beard, he again did the same action. There is the hand up to the shoulders, and then he bowed down. When he came up, he said something Alamin hamidah.
That Allah years, those who praise Allah subhanaw taala. And, again did the same action that is they did his hands up to the shoulders, but he did not do the action. They didn't handle up to the shoulders between the two prostration when he said to take beat. So this is action of the Prophet.
Saba sees action and narrates it, this becomes
so not the family. The third type of sooner is the son of the decree, that is the approval of the Prophet. And the example is given in Santa Ana without or number one, in the book of Salah did number one to six to where one is the Prophet.
He played the father Salah he leaves the Fatherland, the congregation, and after the Salah is over, he sees a man
after Salah, he gets up, and he offers to record Salah. The Prophet says, the further Salah is only a few records,
indicating Why did you offer to record again, he said that I did not offer the to sunart Salah before fudger. For
that reason, I'm afraid now. And the Prophet kept silent. Because the Prophet was silent, it gives an indication that he approved it. Because if something is wrong,
it's the duty of the prophet to correct it. So because he kept silent, it gives an approval. So this comes a third caddy rasuna. That's
a query approval of the profit in the three types of sooner.
If all the dates authentic, all the dates are say,
the sooner that carries the maximum weight is
sooner the column that is the center of the profit, because that is the general ruling, whether for profit, say something, or if the Prophet commands something, it means he has done it intentionally. And with the purpose that is the highest degree among the three. The next is sort of the fairly, that is action of the Prophet, what the Prophet did with the Saba site and narrates it, but they can be occasions where a Prophet did certain things out of necessity, which may not be the normal norm.
Therefore, the action of the Prophet carries less weight than the sayings of the Prophet saying is that consciousness and that is the general ruling. And if there is a difference between the seeing and the action of the Prophet, the saying of the Prophet carries more weight, because maybe the action was done out of some reason, or out of some purpose with the person who's seeing it, you may not be aware of it. And we'd have such examples from example in future and challenges episode.
And the third amongst the three is, they assume that they really approve of the Prophet that means he kept silent that means it is approved, it is permissible.
Dr. Zakir what is the importance and the authority
of the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Allah Islam, as far as the Sunnah is concerned, it is the second unavoidable source of Islam. If you have to understand Islam, number one source is the Quran and the second is the son of the Prophet. To understand the full Islam you cannot understand without these two sources, both important Quran as well as authentic hadith authentics are not of the Prophet
and as far as the important as soon as concerned. Allah says no Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the fifth name, doula, what your ob Allah and obey the messenger and those charged with authority among you. But
if you differ among yourself, refer it back to align to the fool if you believe in Allah, and the last day, this is the best and the most suitable for the final determination. You're the word used in the Quran is up to you, which means to obey and use for attune law at your soul, obey Allah and obey the messenger. So the obey word is used for Allah and the messenger, but it's not used for those charges that are the ammonia. That means the undisputed obeying is only for lions referral. And further goes on and saying that if those among you those charged with authority, if you differ among yourself, refer it back to online the referral to allender school or the final authority. It
doesn't say refer it back to those charges.
Because we know that many a time, the scholars differ among themselves. So if the differ, if any scholar differs, you go back to a line that is full, and the scholar who's in line with the lines, so you have to follow him. So this is the importance of Sunnah. And further, there are two separate things it says, a two law of accuracy will obey Allah and obey the messenger. So obey Allah, we follow the Quran, and obey the messenger, we follow the Sunnah of the messenger, that is authentic hadith.
it says that both these two forces are different, one is different, and the sooner authentic it the different.
And further if we analyze, the word VA is used between them, indicating that we have to follow both. It doesn't say Summa
Attila sumatera soul, then you follow the rule, you have to follow both of them simultaneously, then only will you understand Islam in the right perspective. And you're the word that is used here that it is obey Allah and the messenger. Both are equally important when they refer back to align the rule that we have referred back to alignment. So not only to allow not only to the result, both important for you to understand the true Sharia. And the last point to be noted, is that the starting of the Quranic verses, yeah, a human lives in Amman or you believe a doula. What's your soul? That means obeying Allah, and obeying the messenger is for all the believers, it's not only
for the companions, or for some of the believers, it's for all believers. Further as mentioned in Surah Qian, chapter number 72, was covered only three. It says that if you disobey Allah and is our soul,
then your place will be in the Hellfire to dwell therein forever. That means if you disobey Allah and His Messenger, your place will be in Hellfire will not enter Paradise, further expansion, that
if you don't obey Allah and the messenger, your deeds will be in vain.
Allah says in Surah, Mohammed, chapter number 47. Muslim Ettore, obey Allah and obey the messenger and let not your deeds go in vain.
Further, as far as the tradition is concerned, and the important is concerned, obeying the messenger is obeying Allah subhanaw taala. Allah says in Surah Nisa, step number four, Muslim at that, if you obey the messenger, you will be Allah subhanaw taala. And if you turn away, we have not seen the messenger to look after your affairs, especially your evil deeds and for this mission in the heartbeat of the Muslim world number three, number 4518.
Beloved Prophet masala son said that if you obey me,
you'll be Allah. If you disobey me, you disobey Allah.
So obeying the messenger is same as obeying Allah subhanaw taala. And further one law says in the Quran, in Surah najem, chapter number 53 was number three and four, that the messenger does not speak out of himself. It is nothing more than an inspiration sent out to him. And Beloved Prophet masilela Some said, it's mentioned in say Buhari on number 900 number seven to eight zero. The blurred Prophet said that there are among the believers who will end the paradise and some will refuse to enter Paradise. So the Saba does, who would refuse to enter Paradise. So the Prophet said, those who obey me into the paradise, those who disobey me they refuse to enter it.
the Quran says that, if you obey the messenger, I love and love you. Allah says in Surah libran chapter number three was the metallic one.
Allah says to move slow seldom say,
tell them if you love Allah, follow me and follow the messenger. And I love love you and He will forgive your sins. So following the messenger is loving Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the importance of the Sunnah in Islam. Following on from Iran, sir.
Could it be said that a person who intentionally neglects the sinner?
Would that person be
punished in the hereafter?
Before I replied to your question, I would like to clarify certain points. As far as the actions and deeds of any Muslim is concerned, they're broadly divided into two categories, one is halal and the other is haram. halaal is the permissible category Haram is the forbidden, prohibited category. Furthermore, the halal category is further divided into four sub categories.
The first is the fourth, which is obligatory,
which is complicity. Second is the most the hub, the things with the encouraging Islam. Third is the MOBA, the things which are often in Islam. The fourth is the macro, the thing which are discouraged in Islam or detestable.
So in all, there are five categories. Number one is fourth, which is obligatory and complicity number two is the most top thing which encouraged
the third is the MOBA thing which optional, fourth is macro theory that discouraged or the testament Islam and fifth is haram things which are forbidden and prohibited. Now, if a person does an act of Ferb and compass react,
he gets the reward, that is he gets positive points. If a person does not do a further thing,
he gets a punishment, he gets negative points. As far as the second category is concerned, there is no stop. If a person does STOP Act
gets the reward, it gets to positive point. But a person who does not do almost the act, he gets no punishment. He gets no negative points. The third category that is MOBA optional, whether a person does the MOBA optional act or not, or does not do an optional, like he gets no positive nor negative points, you get no reward, you get no punishment. It's absolutely neutral. It's optional.
The fourth category is the macro,
the discouraged or distributed, if a person abstains from things which are macro, it gets the positive point it gets a reward. And if a person does the macro thing, you get no punishment. You give someone a good point. As far as the last fifth category is concerned, that is haram that's prohibited. If a person abstains from doing the Haram thing, then he gets a positive point he gets a reward. If he does the Haram act, he gets a punishment he gets the negative points. So these are in brief, as far as the five categories are concerned. Now coming to the question of Suna
Suna are of two types.
One is the Louis Suna. That is the literal meaning of Sona. That is the things the actions and approval of the Prophet. So as far as the UI, that is the literal meaning of sadhana is concerned, it can fall in the first four categories. It can either be a tsunami, which is further a tsunami stab a tsunami, which can be mobile or a tsunami which is macro. So the Laguna the literal sooner can fall under any four categories.
Suna falling in the four categories, masala Salaam, prayed the fudger Salah. He prayed the verse Allah He put all the five prescribed Salah that way the actions of the profit and also save the profit, but it falls in the fourth category.
The example of the Musab Sunnah is the Prophet. He prayed the to record Suna before the Father Salah it's not a first to Pedro kasana but it is mazahub it is encouraged. This is the second category, the third category of MOBA will be musallam had long hair was optional. No So anyone who has long hair, it's optional, it is permissible
example of the fourth category macro, we will think that can to profit to something which is macro, and we were shocked what is actually speaking profit. So not the profits macro. Let me give an example. The thing that Prophet masala salam,
he said that do not drink while standing. So digging and sanding is macro fine. So the right stop is to sit and drink. But there he's also saying that the Prophet he stood and he drank water, maybe there was a reason there was a requirement. So standing and drinking is makrooh sitting in drinking is most of standing and drinking is discouraged. Sitting in drinking is encouraged. So there are times in case of necessity when the requirement is that the Prophet didn't do sometimes things which are mcru. So this will fall into the category of sooner which is Nakuru in the loop Ethan's not in the ficky sensor complete later on. The SP believes what is accurate saying that, that is tsunamis
dream Oh no, it's not Louis as it can be. Because
you shouldn't drink water. But normally, most of the times almost all the times he said anything. So there are times of necessity. But since a person does makrooh he will get no negative points, no punishment on the profit and get punishment but neither will get any reward.
So, this was in brief talking about the luisana that is the literal definition of so now it can fall under any four categories
mastaba, MOBA or macro. Now coming to the second category of Suna, that is the figure funa, which we normally when we talk about Suna, it's taken for granted it is the key so now that the sooner in fact and a fool you know, when we talk about sooner, so this basically is the second category of Mustang.
When we say that, you pray the Torah sooner before further the Sunnah of the Prophet, it isn't of the profit to sit and drink water, when they say this. So now it is talking about the effect. It indicates the word must have for normally in day to day life when we Muslims say this not to do this and so not to do that. Most of the times, almost all when they use the word it shouldn't have the profit to sit and drink the son of the prophet to pray to rasuna before the Father Salah, the son of the prophet to read Torah mustard, in winter the mosque, all these mainly come into the category of pasta. So the sooner is muster up things which are encouraged and in all the five categories of Ford
Mustang MOBA, mcru. And in harem, there are subcategories. Like as we discussed last time, sins, major sins minor sins and haram things that are haram which are major, major minor, same thing macro, which are less macro, some are more macro MOBA fine. The profit kept long hair it's optional, but if someone does that optional thing for the love of the profit, it will get there it's optional.
No punishment, no reward, but if you're doing for the love of the profit, then for that
again for this optional things with the profit did that came up with an optional thing with the profit don't do. Furthermore, in most tab, there is Sunita mocha, Sunita gear mocha. Sunitha mocha means a more important sooner, the two sooner
before the further Salah, is Sunita makeda it's more important sooner than they are the sooner the sooner the makeda Sunita Garr makeda, same thing in the fries. In the first thing, there are some which are more important, some which are less important. For example, the five pillars of Islam. Number one is tauheed is offering Salah first in the month of Ramadan, during Hajj, if you can do exactly that. All these are more important fries and abstaining from major sin. This itself already discussed 70 come the major fries, and there'll be less fries. So in all these categories, there are subcategories. But coming to a basic question that will we be punished if we intentionally not do
the full nonprofit. Now this one I are talking about, I assume it is the focus on it for the Lipizzaner. I've already given the answer the first few categories ficky for now means it falls in the category of Mustang, which already discussed earlier, that if you do a Mustang act, that is the focus on now, you will get reward for it, you get blessings for it. If it's not the makeda then more blessings as compared to synthetic yarmulke that also get blessings, but less, but if a person does not do it intentionally or unintentionally, he will not be punished for that. But that does not mean because we will not get punishment for not doing the sooner we should abstain from bringing because
we human beings, we make so many mistakes, we do so many faults, we involved in so many sins The fool Now, when we do we get additional points, we get rewards. This will help us in fulfilling the lacunae which is there in other falls or the other falls we do. It helps in covering up
our false some of our sins. So therefore, a Muslim should do as much as soon as possible. Just because he will not get a punishment that doesn't mean that he should not do it. In fact, he should try and do as much as sooner look with no monster backs so that it will help them to cover up the other falls which human beings do and it will help them to go to Gen
Subhana Allah the system that you've described is so equitable, that if one makes a mistake, one area that you can make up for it in another area, the Most Merciful gives us challenge more and more possibilities to come on the straight path. And Brenda janela subhana wa zakka
is keeping a beard Fudd or Sunnah. And what is the ruling or a person who shaves his beard as far as keeping a beard whether it's the first person and I understand that when we use the word soon in future, it will be the focus on auto stop.
Therefore, I prefer using the word most up for soon after that, there is no two difference of understanding. So as far as keeping a beard whether it is a furthermost, tab also now
most of the scholars majority almost all
they say that keeping a beard for fall Muslim men
there is no verse in the Quran we say that the keeping a beard further not except the one verse He speaks about the beard in chapter number 20 Muslim men and before they add in peace be upon him harmony Salaam, he tells to his brother masala Salaam, that Oh son of my mother, do not hold me by my beard, or by the hair on my head, indicating that howling the sun up he had a beard and when we did the seed of the Prophet, customer, Columbia and on we come to know that all the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala had a beard
and all the righteous people and all the friends of Allah subhanaw taala just people the Saba Vidya like that, that the beard
the ruling as far as the difference is based on the hadith of masala Salam of say Buhari on number seven. The Book of this added number 5892 if no more I'm in love with him. He says that the Prophet said, do the opposite of what the machines do, what the pagans do. Keep the beard and trim your mustache is shot.
Now based on the study themselves he had mentioned in a Muslim in the deep. The scholar said that because there's a commandment of Allah Azza wa sallam called commandment, therefore become further on every Muslim to keep a beard. Most of the scholars Alhamdulillah all the scholars including the for the for a month Imam Abu hanifa Imam Malik Imam Shafi, Mr. Medvedev number, may Allah have mercy on them all. All of them said that keeping a beard first of all for schools of thought keeping a beard is fun. Even according to the scholars, the shapes of sulfasalazine the Salafi scholars, all of them said that keeping a beard if there's no difference of opinion
and upon to shake him with a meal. He says that according to the front and appointed the Suna and Iijima of the scholars keeping the beard differ, and anyone who shaves off the beard, it is haram, it is prohibited and even the scholars of the four schools of thought and if he Shafi, Maliki, humbly all of them say that shaving the beard is haram. All the scholars, there are a few scholars very hardly any amongst the old scholars who have said that keeping a beard mustache and shaving is makrooh. If keeping a beard mustache shaving, because very few amongst the scholars, but recently, among the new scholars, you have little bit more numbers, who say that it's not far that is mazahub
like, shake up ozora shake jadwal Huck will the ex Vice Chancellor of Oliver University, she gets very few that have come recently. And especially if you go to North America, if you see the fatwas of the North American Council, the old man's of District Council, many of them have said that keeping a beard is not fair, that is messed up. You get rewarded, but it's not fun. And if you shave it, it's not Haram, it's macro. But as a whole scholar of the past, almost all the consensus that keeping a beard effort and shaving it off is haram. Okay, Dr. Zakir, but what about the required lengths of the beard because there are many people with different lengths and and it's rather
confusing when you look outside and you think, oh, what should I be doing? What did the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim, do? As far as the length of the beard is concerned, a score of the divided they have different opinions in for what is the length of the bird, the two opinions, one group of scholars say that because the idea of say Buhari one seven book of this, added number 5892 says, The Prophet said, do the opposite of what the pagans do. Keep the beard and trim your mustache is so because the commandment is keep the beard that means they say that it should be kept. That's it. And the second idea of stable high reward number seven book of destiny number 5893 says that cut your
mustaches shot and grow the beard. So the first group of scholars who grow the beard myth keep on growing, you should not touch it. If the beard myth, let it be. Therefore, you should not at all need the trim the beard nothing at all, we should let it grow as much as possible. This is debut. But if you read there is not a single say added which speaks about the length of the beard of the Prophet, not a single sided. There's not a single sided, but I'm going to show you what I mean. He says that we understand when that this is that keep the beard or grow the beard. It means you should leave it It should not touch it and let the lens be as much as possible.
If someone shaved that is haram and someone trims it, the size of a fist the other view, then it is macro. So there is one group of scholars said let it grow as much as possible. The other group of scholars what they say that the length of the beard should be one fist.
As I mentioned earlier, there is no say Hadith, which speaks about the length of the beard of the Prophet. There's a hadith which is a Friday, or a Mondo Hadith. We say that the beard of the Prophet it touched the chest, but that's a formal definition not within the bunny, the Hadith mentioned in, say, Muslim, or in number 400 number 5789, where jabber been Samira. He says, Hello, Peter, Tim, that the Prophet had a thick beard. There are many say How did he say the Prophet had thick beard, but doesn't mention the length of the beard. But this group of scholars they say that since the length of the beard is not mentioned, what we have to do is that look at how the Sahaba has kept the
The length is not mentioned. So if you look at the Saba look at the Prophet said, if you don't find in my example, then look at the people around me in this generation that the companions sahabas and when we look at the sabas we find several authentic hadith more than 10 say Hadith which say that the Sahaba kept the beard at the length of one fist and whatever was below the one fist the trim the beard
including me Omar man lobby visit him now Bassman lobby president Abu huraira man lobby president all these sabalenka very close to the Prophet the trim the beard, even those Saba who narrated the same Hadith apne Omar mela visit the mandate of Cyprus Buhari on number seven book of this added number 5892 if normal my life please let him know that the the Prophet said that do opposite of what the pig to
give the beard and mustache is immediately after that, that this continues and says that whenever new Mr. manleigh up with him used to go for Umrah and Hajj
after Umrah and Hajj is to get the beard with the fist and whatever was below the fist
is to cut it. So imagine those of us who narrated that these and all the sub nomadic nabasa Barrera mela is with them all. They were staunch followers of the son of the Prophet.
And they narrated that they then read the idea of trimming the mustache and keeping the beard growing the beard, they understood the way the Prophet wanted. So why did they trim the beard if the view of the first group of scholars is right, that keep on growing, growing means how to grow the way the profit group and if there's no heartbeat indicating his sayings or actions.
And you look at the way the Savas did that the way how you analyze
that there isn't necessarily money. He says that the right size of the beard should be the size of a fist.
And he says, for example, that when we analyze the Hadith, if it's present in the things that are the best of the Prophet, if it's not you look in action. It's not an action approval if it is not there, we look in the lifestyle of the Sahaba What did they say? What did they do? So we agreed that what the Savas did was they followed the profit, and you don't find a single Hadith, neither the prophet or neither of any of the Saba we say that they did not trim the beard. There are more than 10 Hadith that the sabas
the trim the beard below the fist, if there was even a single Hadith which says that this Saba did not trim the beard at all, then it can be possible that
both are right, because there's not a single Hadith on the other side, saying that the Sahaba never trim the beard. But there are no less than 10 weeks I had the receipt that the Saba is below the face, the trim the beard, a condition natural Bunny, it is further
to trim the beard below the fist,
the father and anyone who keeps a beard, more than the fist length, it is macro accounting, macro detection digestible. So this is a strong fatawa in Bahasa galbani. He's very staunch. And I personally agree with his view, because there is evidence in the lifestyle of the Saba and He further stated his book, and he writes that why it should be the length of one fist. He said, besides the sahabas many examples we find who kept one fish and cut below one fish the beard, he gives the examples of many self install to him
who had the beard the size of fish, and the trim the beard below the fist, like for example,
we have examples of Imam Malik. Remember the number all these great sulfasalazine they trim the beard grow the fist equivalent like that, and the trimmer below the fist. So this is a
We are the second group of scholars and agreement with the group of scholars in tradition as the right size is the size of the fist and the rest Allah Allah
is Allah has the answer. Exactly. Is it a Sunnah to wear the headcovering wear the cap.
Because we do see a number of people, particularly those people who have returned from Gulf countries and such like Hajj, etc, that deliberately remove their cap
whilst they're praying, is there any basis for this at all? As far as the first part of the question is concerned? That is, it asuna is it most up to cover man's head?
There are various Hadith which say that Prophet Musa seldom, His head was always covered by the cap with the Tobin the with the helmet, and even the head of the sabas are covered. It's mentioned in say, Muslim, or number two, in the book of hedge, added number 314. It it says that when Hamas de la Salam addressed the people, on the day of the victory of Makkah, he was wearing a black turban. So the many Hadid saying that muscle loss I'm covered that further, according to Hadith regenerator by Omar, it says that masala Salam wore a white cap
is made by Newmar. And according to Bharani, he has rated this as
one of the categories of say Hassan and according to Imam sooty, it says it is a highly authentic hadith. He says in his book that I do need one number for me number 112. Very say that is a highly authentic hadith and masala Salam are wearing a white cap. The Arabic word is goofy for a camp in India with a topi
that is authentic. And there are other added, saying that the Sabbath also covered that. A similar Hadith is mentioned in
say Buhari on number seven in the book of dress, and eat number 5802 says that and has been mulling melodically the team. He covered his head, he wore a cap to based on all these Hadith almost all it's unanimous agreement among the scholars of the scholars that covering the head is Muslim. It is a Sunnah of the prophet is messed up. It's encouraged all all the four schools of thought 100 fee, the Shafi the malarkey, the humbly all four schools of thought and all the 4am Mas, they agreed that covering the head is most up. And when you pray, while praying, also, it's most up to cover the head. It's most up. And if you pray bareheaded, it's macro.
The reason that why people when they come back from the Gulf countries, or when they come from the normally even in India, previously, a few years back maybe 1015 years back,
the people went dependent the most 99% or 99.9%, whenever any man prayed in the mosque, he had his head covered, maybe 20 years back. But now we find that 25% one fourth or one third of the people, they pray the Salah bareheaded.
The reason is that previously it was known that it must have covered head. So even when they didn't cover the head normally, at least by offering salary, they have to cover that under the law. Even though they didn't cover that normally. Always. They covered the head, please by offering so it's a good sign. When people go to Gulf countries they realize and they come to know that covering that is not further for the side to be accepted. And there are many people because they come from different parts of the world in the Gulf countries and they have different ways of practicing Islam. There is the Hadith enrichment of the Sabbath, to show to the people that it's not fun, he just put one piece
of cloth from the shoulder down
below the knee and he prayed salah and accepted so if you ask that is it fun to wear a cap a cover that well offering some extra fun, but it is Mr. hub. So this is what they fail to realize that it is messed up. So why should we not do it? When they come back from the Gulf countries and they come to know it is not a fourth. They try and show the people that we have knowledge and they purposely don't cover the head and now we find in the mosque about 25% one third of them don't have that which I feel is going away from the Sunnah of the Prophet. These people they fail to realize that if they ask the scholars of the Gulf countries, top scholars, all of them knucklehead
all of them because it does because it's like lack of knowledge is dangerous. Does because fine fella will be accepted but is most
and accomplishing NASA galbani he says that covering that is most up and praying bareheaded as macro
and he says that the hadith of ignore Bassman love would be the Tim ordinariates about prophet muscle Salam that he kept his cap as a story.
tra in front of him while offering Salah. It's a definite it's not authentic. And some of the scholars especially from Egypt, they've given the fatwa that you know because in haram when you're performing hajj or Umrah you will go ahead and the Salah is accepted therefore governing that is not the criteria for offering Salah if you read the Hadith of the Prophet Musa al Salaam never did the Prophet lift his head uncovered were praying except in Iran, except for performing hajj or Umrah where the Prophet didn't cover that at all other times he had his head covered
the reason that during ombre while in Iran that wasn't covered is because it is haram to cover the head
many things which are messed up around during the state of Iran which to say that because in HUD you don't cover the head that it's a rule that you should not cover that in Salah is totally wrong. There are many things which are messed up for example, cutting the knees must have in the normal later life but in parameters haram
similarly covering that is Mr. But in haram only it's Haram. So giving this logic is totally wrong.
In Iran, you don't have to cover that because it's not allowed, it's violating the rules of Haram. Otherwise, you should cover the head. And if people are at least covering while offering Salah, they should continue, they will get some up. And that's what all the four imams said, we should not settle Bonnie Tamia shake bars. And all the scholars and Mr. Malik said that from the time of Islam till today, always the scholars and the eyeballs and the Salafis all in the covered head and the Waterman. You know, whether they were Tobin or Goofy, etc. So I encouraged that the Muslim should cover that it's one of the recommended acts of the Prophet.
So can you give us any logical reasons why we should cover the head and grow the beard.
As far as covering the head is concerned growing the beard, as I said, growing the beard is command with a profit. So we have to do it, covering that as soon as the profit into it. That's the main reason. But if people want logical reason why they should do it, there is a saying that if the labels show the intent varied, and I've given a talk on this complete topic,
with a question are still more than three after interviewing now, I'll just say in a nutshell,
the thing that if the label show the intent is to go to a conference. You know, everyone we have the label, they were the name of 2.02. It's an informal introduction.
If you go to a conference with a specialist of doctor, then it may say you're a cardiologist or a neurologist or nephrologist, you know, so it gives an informal introduction. So similarly, wearing a cap or covering the head and sporting a beard is an informal introduction that you're a Muslim. Allah says in the Quran in surah, chapter six, verse number 54. What is it that Allah Xena, Luna VI, Athena for Salaam Alaikum that when you meet those people who believe in our science, then say Assalamu alaikum Peace be on you? How will I recognize when I walk in the streets, especially in India and other countries when I go to Western country that is a Muslim. So this is a good sign of
being a Muslim. You know, we don't require in the label, the label which the Prophet has given us the best that covering your head and putting a beard and it does wonders.
How don't even example that
once in Bombay, there was a young lad who was selling fruits in the muscle tan. An elderly Muslim was a very pious Muslim we store for pride themselves to give the card it's a part of the month of Ramadan at one fight. He comes to buy food from this Hawker. And it goes to this young boy full done violent division with alarms. So he said Uncle, I thought you were a Hindu. Imagine Muslim calling this elderly man we should make it the biggest abuser Can you give to this person? This person was very past person but didn't have a beard didn't cover with it. Who's to blame? Is the elderly gentleman to blame or the young lad for calling emotionally who's to blame?
But natural gentleman he could not have been as him. If the label shows the intent, you should wear it and you can give several such examples. For example, it has various benefits if you're traveling the bus or traveling the train, and if there is Muslim sisters doing his job. There are times in a non Muslim country where somebody mateesah but if there are 10 Slim's don't know each other, each of them wearing a cap, Goofy or sporting a beard, and they're sitting in the bus. The non Muslim will think 10 times before teasing the Muslim girl. Oh, if it is Muslim girl, these 10 Muslim will pounce on me. Even those 10 Muslims may be very feeble may be old, but yet he gets scared. that the reason
it is good that he should wear the label because it shows the intent. For example, if the doctor is proud to put the name doctor before his name, because he's proud to be a doctor in his car, that is a sign of a cross.
Red Cross indicating that he's a doctor. In emergency if you have any problem on the street, you stop the car. Similarly, if any human being has a problem and won't sell, and if it sees a Muslim where the label, a cap and a beard, he will ask him for help, he'll get into the truck. And I remember my grandparents standing there in Bombay, when any people wanted to hire a cabbie with the non Muslims, they preferred hiring a cab whose taxi driver was putting a beard and keeping a cab because they knew he would be honest. They preferred going to a shop, the shopkeeper was putting a beer and wearing a cap. Unfortunately, nowadays, though, label has changed, we find Muslims wearing
cap just to boss around No. And unfortunately the media they portray anyone who has a beard and where the cap is a terrorist. And I've given this reply in my talk. So keeping a beard and wearing a cap or covering that is a very recommended sauna. And we can build a photo Muslim should stick to it and should be proud to identify themselves.
Just ahead of Zach here, we've come to the end of yet another show. And I think we've covered lots and lots of different aspects of the sun. We've defined the sun now what is the sun and why the Muslims should be doing certain centers during this blessed month of Ramadan. Hey, brothers and sisters. I hope inshallah, that you derived a lot of benefit from the show today. And we've been talking of course about Ramadan as being the month of self improvement and Islam.

So, my dear
brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity, please do join us at the same time. Tomorrow, when we will be discussing the topic, Ramadan, the month of self improvement and Islamic art for until then, as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
