00:00:59--> 00:01:15

Welcome to the show on Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir I'm your host, Yousef chambers and today we're discussing the topic, Ramadan, the month of self improvement and Islam parte for

00:01:16--> 00:02:05

Dr. Zakir assalamu alikum walaikum salam wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. So, Dr. Zaki, the first question I'd like to draw your attention to is regarding the use of the right hand over the left, which I understand this or sooner. inshallah, you're going to explain that. Can you explain why the right hand is preferred in such things as eating, greeting and other things, and the left is not preferred at all. Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah wasabia Jermaine, I'm about I was Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, rubbish Elisa de vaisselle, Embry de melissani F konkol. As far as right hand being preferred, in Islam, the things which are

00:02:05--> 00:02:24

honorable, the thing which are most of the things which get blessings, the thing which are good, are supposed to be the right hand and the others like cleaning etc, supposed to know the left hand. And according to the Sunnah of the Prophet masala, we have to eat with the right time, you have to drink with the right hand, you have to shake hands with right hand.

00:02:25--> 00:02:50

And a person when he wears a garment, he should wear the right hand side first. If he's wearing a shirt, it should be right hand first. If he wearing a trouser then right like First, if he's wearing a footwear, again, right like first. And similarly, when a person is doing good, right limbs should be first, the right hand for them the left hand, the right leg, then the left leg while you're entering the masjid, it should be the right foot.

00:02:51--> 00:03:15

If you're completing salah and doing salam, then the right side first, if you're touching the Blackstone, it should be the right time. If you're combing your hair then right side, trimming almost edge right side, cutting the nails right hand first. If you're removing the unwanted hair from the body again right side first, if it's shaving the head, then again right side first. And if you're exerting the toilet,

00:03:16--> 00:03:26

it is right like first. And if you're putting oil in your eyes, again the right side first and if you are doing miswak

00:03:29--> 00:04:03

then again right side first. So these are the Sunnah of the Prophet of the Prophet orders. And as I mentioned that the thing which are to clean and which are not honorable, that said the left hand for example, when removing your garments, is the left side first remove a shirt then left hand. If you're removing your left leg, if you remove your footwear, then again left leg and left foot first, you are exiting the mosque, then the left leg if entering the toilet, again left like if you're cleaning, maybe going to try it and cleaning the part of the body. Then again to the left hand. If you're blowing the nose, it's left hand. So this is the differentiation and you find seven Hadith

00:04:03--> 00:04:08

mentioning these things. It's mentioned at the top of say Buhari org number seven

00:04:10--> 00:04:22

in the book of foods, at least number 5376. With the Beloved Prophet Musa Solomon says, he says to a young boy, that say Bismillah before eating, take the name of Allah before eating

00:04:23--> 00:04:43

it with the right hand and eat what is next to you. It's mentioned a Muslim bone number three in the book of drinks. And this number 5010 Prophet said latok Lucia Molly for English shaitana yalobusha Molly, which means do not eat and drink with the left hand for the Satan eats and drinks with the left hand.

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

So that is the reason you see that most of the Muslims who follow the Sunnah and are pious, they don't eat and drink with a left hand.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

But normally when we have our food when we're having lunch or having dinner with you having your hands and if you don't drink water, most of the people because

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

their right hand is 30 they have the left hand, but in order to follow the deed, they put the right hand down. So you will notice that instead of having directly they put the left hand and put the right hand down so that you know, it indicated having the right hand so that don't don't either glass or shake nasruddin urbani he has objection to this. He says that if the Hadid would have said, that drink with the right hand, or eat with the right time, then that actor be right, what that the face of most of them, do not drink and eat with the left hand for the Satan eats and drinks for the left hand. So even doing this the objects, he says, even though the right hand is dirty, you can

00:05:38--> 00:06:01

pick up the glass with the right hand, because it's preferable to dirty the glass than dirty the soul. So he even disagrees having you the left hand and putting it right in below, he's having directly with the right hand. If the glass gets dirty, no problem, it's preferable to dirty the glass, the dirty the soul. This is the difference of opinion that should not swindle money has men lived mercy on him. Furthermore, it's mentioned that the two of

00:06:02--> 00:06:25

us without in the book of foods are the number four one to nine, the beloved prophet merciless from said that grew the right side first, while you're doing Voodoo, and while you are putting on a garment, the prophet said, use your right hand first, when you're putting on a garment. And when you're doing Voodoo, and then you can use the left later on.

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

Further, it's mentioned in Haditha, without

00:06:29--> 00:06:41

one number 133 it's mentioned that Mimosa wa sallam said that you should use your right hand for getting food and use your right hand for doing ablution

00:06:42--> 00:07:22

right side first, and then use the left side. And if you're washing, then you the left side. And further mentioned in the hadith of say Muslim, Khalid number five zero for the Beloved Prophet said that do not use the right times for things like washing, etc, a few the left hand for things like washing etc. And based on this, Mashallah, it is so now that as I mentioned, we do good thing and honorable thing that messed up thing the right time. And the other with the left hand. And regarding the logic behind this is that medical science tells us today that the left side of the brain, it controls the right side of the body

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

and the right side of the brain, it controls the left half of the body.

00:07:27--> 00:08:09

And today, science tells us that more than 90% of human beings, the left hemisphere of the brain is dominant, that there isn't more than 90% of the human beings, they are it where the left side of the brain is dominant. So most of the things that people do, whether Muslim or non Muslim, they use the right side. But Islam encourages us for doing the good things with the right hand. And the things which are not cleaning etc, use the left side. And the reason is that normally most of the people use only left hemisphere of the brain because they're it but Islam encouraged us to use right hand right side of the body for the good things, but even tells us to use the left side for doing things

00:08:09--> 00:08:42

which are not honorable, for thing which opposite. So you're a human being, besides doing things the good thing right hand, he is forced to use his left side, for example, while exiting the mosque, you have to exit with the left foot for entering the toilet, you have to enter the left foot. So here we make a conscious effort. For example, removing the garment normally, people use the right time they put the garment at the right time and remove with the right side. This is a normal habit. So yeah, we deliberately,

00:08:43--> 00:09:13

consciously use the left side for removing the garment left side for removing the footwear. So yeah, we are even utilizing the other part of the brain, the left than the right side. So it gives a good exercise to the brain. And it is much more better for the brain. Scientifically also it's better what the prophet said more to do the right time, but we consciously do certain things with the left hand so that is a good nourishment and exercise for us again, a demonstration of the balance in Islam Alhamdulillah next question,

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

what is the ruling

00:09:17--> 00:09:21

for drinking whilst a person may be standing

00:09:22--> 00:09:43

in Islam, there are no less than six Hadith only in say Muslim, which forbid a Muslim from regular standing. A Beloved Prophet masala from said it's mentioned in say Muslim world number three in the book of drinks, Hadith number 5017.

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

The Prophet disapproved drink he was standing,

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

say Muslim boy number three, Book of drinks. habit number 5018. The Prophet

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

forbade a person from drinking

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

Miley standing. It further mentioned in, say Muslim, world number three, in the book of drinks, habit number five zero to zero, the prophet warned from drinking while standing. It's also mentioned in say Muslim world number three, in the book of drinks, added number five zero to two, the beloved Prophet said, none shall drink while standing. So all these are the the disapprove of a person from bringing my standing immediately the next 500

00:10:32--> 00:10:41

say Muslim boy number three, Book of drinks Hadith number 5023 to five zero to seven, the next 500 feet, the prophet

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

drank some water while standing.

00:10:45--> 00:10:59

And also mentioned in say Bukhari was number two in the book of Hadith number 167. The Beloved Prophet Musa Salaam, it says that he drank some water by standing. So based on these heartbeat,

00:11:00--> 00:11:04

all the scholars agree that drinking

00:11:05--> 00:11:25

by sitting is most powerful and you can stand and drink only when you have some some water. This is what some of the scholars they have given the ruling but there are various other Hadith which also show that besides them the water the Prophet even drain the nominal water by standing. It's mentioned say Buhari

00:11:26--> 00:12:09

wire number seven, in the book of drinks, Hadith number 5615. It says the health element lobby pleased with him. He walked towards the courtyard of a mosque and he drank water by standing and he said I know that many people think it is disapproved. It's mcru. It's disliked for a person request handling. But I've seen the profit drink while standing the way I'm drinking now. And further it's mentioned in the deed of Muslim amad we're number one on it number 797. We save that Hello Valley Menlo, please the Tim, that once he was drinking while standing, and the people looked at him, and they stared at him. And he said that my eyes are looking at me.

00:12:11--> 00:12:20

I'm doing what the Prophet did. I drink while standing because I've seen the Prophet drink for standing also sick while drinking whether sin The Prophet said and drink.

00:12:21--> 00:13:01

And it's mentioned in the hadith of Jeremy the Hadith number 1881. That if no one will be pleased with him, he said that he along with a profit in the company profit he many a time used to eat while walking and should drink fast handling. So based on these studies, we come to know the measure of the scholars agree that sitting and drinking is mazahub is the act which is preferred because it is a commandment of the Prophet. As I mentioned earlier, whenever a commandment and action of the Prophet contradicts the commandment carries more weight, because commandment is a normal ruling. And action maybe there was a requirement it was urgency, whatever it is, so the most tub is to sit and

00:13:01--> 00:13:31

drink. But because the Prophet even sometimes stood and drank, standing and drinking is also allowed that comes in the category of macro that is it is detestable, you will not get any punishment, but you can stand and drink where the Prophet also stood and drank. So as I mentioned earlier that it was a need. Therefore standing and drinking is not Haram. Some people have misconception that standing in drinking haram so it's not haram it's Nakuru, it's preferred to sit and drink. Can you, doctor?

00:13:33--> 00:13:49

Furthermore, to your last answer, can you now sum up the etiquettes of drinking as far as the Sunnah, and dedicate for drinking our concern. Number one is you should say Bismillah before drinking,

00:13:50--> 00:14:35

you should drink with right hand you should sit while drinking. Number four, you should drink water in three gulps or more so you don't have in one gulp finishing. Number five. After finishing drinking you should praise Allah say Alhamdulillah number six is that if someone is serving drinks to other people, if they're a group of people or their guests coming, he should have the last drink number seven, he should start serving from the right hand side number eight, a person should not drink from the pitcher it should pull it into a cup or a glass and then have it all these are hygienic you know normally when you have from the picture, then you know it's preferable to have it

00:14:35--> 00:14:49

the glass and leave the complete water clean. And the last is and the main one is that you should not drink in a gold or a silver vessel. These tickets and so now of drinking water zakka have the answers and have zacky

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

We arrived at the last question for today and the interview phase. And it's quite a straightforward and simple one. You do hear many Muslims pronounce this many

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

He Rahmani Raheem. Before they eat is this Asana as far as my knowledge goes, I have not heard of any say Howdy, I have not come across any say Hadith any authentic hadith, in which the Prophet said that before eating you have to say Bismillahirrahmanirrahim or the Prophet said Bismillah, before eating. In fact, all that did that I know, He only said Bismillah and even if you read the hadith of say Buhari, or number seven, in the book of foods, added number 5376. The Prophet says to a young boy, that before eating, see the name of Allah, say Bismillah and eat with the right hand and eat or disclose to you.

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

Even the Hadith of the Dasha may live up to

00:15:47--> 00:16:33

its mission Southern without volume number three, in the book of foods, Hadith number 3758. Hello, Tasha Mallaby Peter, the moment you mellow Peter, she said that, when you eat, you should say Bismillah In the name of Allah. And if you forget to say Bismillah, before eating, then whenever you remember, say Bismillah Allahu Akbar, which means that in the name of Allah, in the big name, and In the name of Allah towards the end. So this is the teaching of the Prophet Musa al Salaam, but unfortunately, people because of lack of knowledge, the simple Bismillah of mine Rahim In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. And when I reminded one of the brothers that you know, this

00:16:33--> 00:17:08

man lies, right authentic. What is the hum Bismillah R. Rahman is more In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful, isn't it better than Bismillah? I said, if the prophet in said, Do think only boo and the Prophet, so then I asked him, the same logic if I use when I'm slaughtering the animal. When you're sacrificing the animal, you say Bismillah Bismillah. Loud, but you can have a bismil layer of memory, In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. Imagine a soldering animal. And then think In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. So unfortunately, Muslims, because a lack of knowledge, instead of following the plan and say, How did they try and

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

use their own logic, and they try and improve, which is totally wrong. We should follow what a liner should have said, which is like Alaska, and I can't deny any of the answers at all.

00:17:19--> 00:17:27

The next question is, what is the Islamic dress code for men and women? Islam? quite a long question.

00:17:28--> 00:17:53

As far as Islamic discord is concerned, there are a few guidelines given in the Quran, as well as nodded. Allah first speaks about the hijab, for the male, and for the female in the Quran. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 24 was number 36. The believing man that he should load is good and God is modesty. That means whenever a man looks at a woman, any base in thought comes, it should load as case.

00:17:55--> 00:18:32

Once there was a person, Muslim staring at a girl for a long time, I don't matter what you're doing is harming Islam. So he said, our beloved Prophet said, the first glance is Forgiving, the second is prohibited, I have not completed half my glands. That does not mean you can look at a girl for 10 minutes without blinking and saying I'm not complete maglevs later on comes the dress code. The next one speaks about the job for the woman. It's mentioned in chapter number 24 was number 31, say to the believing woman that she should lower against and garden modesty and display not a beauty except what appears ordinarily off, and to draw a head covering over the bosom and display not a beauty

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

except to her husband, son, and a big list of marum the closer it is who she can marry escaping.

00:18:38--> 00:18:55

Basically, there are six criteria for the job for the man and woman. The first is the extent which for the man from the navel to the need. For the woman, the complete body should be covered, the only part that can be seen or the face and handed the poorest. There are some scholars who say that even they should be covered.

00:18:57--> 00:19:14

The remaining five criteria are the same for the man and the woman. The second is the clothes the way it should not be tight so that it is the figure. Third, it should not be transparent or translucent, so that you can see through number four, it should not be so glamorous so that he attacks the opposite sex.

00:19:15--> 00:19:53

Number five, it should not resemble that of the unbeliever and their body in a Muslim. world number three, in the book of dress, Hadith number five and 731 is a person was wearing a saffron colored clothes. So the Prophet said that remove this color. This color resembles that of the unbeliever. saffron is the color of the unbeliever. So he's not workloads that resemble that of the unbeliever. And especially that with the signs of unbeliever, wearing across the sign of Christianity, putting a vermin on Arctic a sign of Hinduism, so it should not wait those which are signs of the unbeliever.

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

And the sixth criteria is you should not wear clothes that have the opposite sex.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

I didn't say Buhari or number seven,

00:20:03--> 00:20:43

the book of this hadith number 5885, where the Prophet said the men should not behave like the woman and did not wear clothes like that of the woman, and the woman should not behave like men should not have manners like men and should not wear clothes that cetera. So these are the basically six criteria of a job, but this one talks about the close besides this for the complete job. It even includes the way a person talks, the way a person walks, the way a person thinks, the way a person carries him or herself, all this put together as a job. And Allah further says in the Quran, in Surah, chapter number 33, verse number 59, oh Prophet, tell the believe woman that when they go

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

abroad, they should put on the clock so that they shall be recognized and prevent them from being molested. And always given example, that if their two twin sisters are very beautiful, equally beautiful, if they're walking down the streets of maybe London, the city where you stay, and if one of the sisters is wearing the complete hijab, complete body covered from the face and hands up to the wrist. And the other twin sister who's equally beautiful, she is wearing the vest and miniskirts are shot and around the corner there is a hooligan who's ready for a catch on to ask the question, which girl will it is will it is the girl wearing the miniskirt ability is the girl wearing the

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

hijab, which is

00:21:23--> 00:22:00

definitely the one with a miniskirt that side. So Quran rightly says that the job has been prescribed for the woman so that it will prevent them from being molested. So these are the basic six criteria. And furthermore, there are other rulings about clouds etc. As far as agenda shows are concerned for the men, our beloved Prophet said that gold and silk are prohibited. It's mentioned so nissei book of Zenith chapter number 40, added number five and four seven. The Beloved Prophet said two things gold and silk are forbidden for the male's of my alma but the permissible

00:22:01--> 00:22:44

for the females. Furthermore, you get guidance from the date that the terms of the Lord government should be above the ankle it should not be below the ankle. And it's mentioned in the habit of say Buhari born number seven book of dress, added number 5787. The blood Prophet said that the is are the trouser that hangs below the ankle that will be in fire. As we discussed in the previous episode, wearing trousers and lower garment below the ankle is prohibited. Further, we get guidance, that wearing dress of fame, and those which make you outstanding as compared to the other people around you like those that the king fair and the leaders proving that they are superior. It is

00:22:44--> 00:22:47

private. It's mentioned in Sona without

00:22:48--> 00:23:06

added number 4018 and 4019. The person who wears the clothes for fame and for glamour, Allah subhanho wa Taala will clothe him with that on the Day of Resurrection. And the other Version says that allowed them with disgrace on the day of judgment on the resurrection.

00:23:07--> 00:23:13

No further guidelines given that it's preferable that you rewrite loads and a profit set as mentioned. So not without

00:23:15--> 00:24:00

in the book of dress, one number 300 number 4050. The professor that way right governments because they're the best of governments and showed the dead person in white. And further a beloved performance lesson said it's mentioned in Sweden up without or number three in the book of dress, added number 4129. The Prophet said that whenever you wear a garment or do you start with the right hand, so this is also not that really wearing a garment start with the right hand. So these are the few rulings which we get in the Quran and the Hadith regarding the hijab, the desk code and regarding what you can follow the Sunnah, as far as maintenance is concerned, is like a like a

00:24:00--> 00:24:06

doctor Zack and I'm sure that we could talk for a whole episode and more on just that topic alone.

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

So

00:24:09--> 00:24:38

now we're gonna move on to many questions. You've got the topic, Ramadan, the month of self improvement and Islam relating to some of the Sooners we've been talking about in the last couple of episodes. And so let's get the first question. So Dr. Zakir The first question from the worldwide audience of pstv Alhamdulillah Allah guide them and have mercy upon them. I mean, what is the purpose of Sunnah in Islam?

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

Isn't the Quran enough for guidance question mark. As far as what is the purpose of fitna and even the Quran sufficient there are some people who so called modernist inverted commas because in some modern Muslim they say that isn't the Quran sufficient wife refer to the Sunnah and they fail to realize that the soon

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

Is the unavoidable second source of Islam. The authentic hadith of most Rasul Allah, his sayings, his actions, his approval are very important for us to understand the Quran. And, in fact, the say Hadith, the authentic hadith, the Sunnah of the prophet is the commentary of the Quran. There are certain verses, which are there in the Quran, which may not require any commentary, that clear cut, for example, kohala ad says allowing only to understand that simple alized one don't require a commentary. But there are many other verses which without the Hadith without the Sunnah, you cannot follow the verses. For example, the Quran says that a Muslim

00:25:43--> 00:26:22

who is rich he should give zakat. The Quran does not specify how many percentage of Zakat they should give. Only when you read the Hadith of the Prophet, the son of the Prophet, you come to know that if you have wealth, gold, silver, money, etc, after give 2.5% of that wealth, as we discussed earlier, if it's a farm produce crop, then without irrigation 10% with irrigation 5% and so on and so forth. Without that it how you come to know the Quran does specify the people who can give the cutter but how much to give you that mentioned Furthermore, the Quran Fisher offers Allah certain things I mentioned the Quran, about sujood about Roku, but the details aren't mentioned how many

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

rocket they have to offer Salah

00:26:25--> 00:27:04

what are the exact portions of Salah where to keep your hand etc. so that you get from the Sunnah. So imagine the Pillars of Islam cannot be followed without the Hadith. It's so important. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah chapter number 33 verse number 21, very early in the Prophet is the most beautiful pattern of conduct. And that is the reason Allah says in several verses in the Quran, including chapter four, verse 59, that are to love what you're assuming, obey Allah and obey the messenger. That means if you have to obey Allah you have to obey the messenger and obeying the messenger is obeying Allah subhanaw taala therefore, Sunnah is unavoidable. There are some was isn't

00:27:04--> 00:27:45

the Quran with the commentary of the Quran is found in the plan itself, but many other places in the Quran. The Hadith is a much more commentary. For example, I'll give you just a few examples for a better understanding. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah majda chapter number five was the machete asked to the teeth, beat a man or a woman chop off his or her hand as a punishment for last minute Allah. So that means anyone who robs anything, anyone who steals anything of the planet future prevent. But when we go to the detail when we go the Hadith of the Prophet you come to know as mentioned say Buhari won't number eight in the book of food and eat number 6789 the blood puff

00:27:45--> 00:28:26

muscles from said that anyone who robs a quarter of a dinar or more, you should chop off his hand. That means if he Rob's less than that, then there's no chopping off and imagine someone steals his bread because they cannot eat. So we'll chop off his head no, and the duty of the ruler of the area, the relief of the davia to look after the basic needs, but someone Rob's for his pleasure, etc, then it's Haram, shopping is a must. Secondly, we will chop his hand from you get from that eat. The Prophet said you cannot eat from the rest. Others people material can jump from the finger they can jump from the elbow you can jump from the upper arm up from from that need to come to know it's on

00:28:26--> 00:28:48

the wrist. There are several such examples in the Quran a person can give very soon is a must. For example, Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the 101. When it travels through the earth, there is no blame on you. If you shorten your prayers, for fear of the unbeliever, that they will attack you. For the unbelievers to you are an avowed enemy

00:28:50--> 00:28:56

of the Quran clearly say that you can shorten your prayer when you're traveling for the fear of unbelievers, that they may harm you etc.

00:28:58--> 00:29:20

which is mentioned in say Muslim volume number one, hide them 1461 were one of the Sahaba he asked Allah, Allah pleased with him that the Quranic verse says, that when you travel, you can shorten your prayers, for the fear of the enemy. But now there is no fear of enemy. So why should we shorten it now?

00:29:21--> 00:29:56

Allah be pleased with him, he replies, I asked the same question to the Messenger of Allah. And he said, this is charity for you. So accept the idea of Allah that means whenever you travel, irrespective, you have the fear of the enemy or not fear of the unbeliever not yet you can shut in if daddy wasn't there, the Quranic word only gives one type of reason, but you can get the commentary in the Hadith from that need to come to the whenever you travel. And then what is the distance then again, you know how deep it is approximately, or then it takes long kilometers. You get there, what is the distance that a person is called the traveler, and again, you get the details

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

in the Hadith. From that need to come to know the winner you travel

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

More than 80 kilometers, then you call the traveler and you can shorten your prayers, and you should shorten because that's a gift from Allah subhanaw taala it's a charity from Allah subhanaw taala you can go on and on giving examples. Well just give one more example. Allah says in the Quran in surah Anam chapter number six verse number 145, that I have only been prohibited to eat those foods which I mentioned the foreign and the worst continues, that hermit Li commented about them while amble Kinsey lollygag lobby, which means that forbidden free for food or dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine and any food on which any name besides our last name is taken. So by this was a company that

00:30:36--> 00:30:52

only default types of food a priority, all the others you can have. But for details when you go to that eat the 700 we say that even other types of foods are prohibited. For example, its mission is a Muslim more number 300 number 475. To

00:30:54--> 00:31:34

the Beloved Prophet masala from said, that forbidden for you to eat at the birds of prey. Those birds which has got talent which have got claws, these birds are prohibited which is not mentioned before an intermission that did the 700 mentioning say Muslim and say Buhari the forbidden for food are the animals which attack others which are carnivorous animals, meat eating animals like tiger, leopard, Cheetah, Lion, etc. It's mentioned in say Buhari in the book of fluttering, added number five five to eight, the beloved partner Salah from said that forbidden for you to eat is the meat of the donkey. So all these things are not mentioned in the Quran, you have to go to that date from

00:31:34--> 00:31:45

that need to get the more details. Quran is more of a telegraphic message. It's very important, very authentic Alhamdulillah but for commentary have to go to the Hadith that there is in Hadith is unavoidable

00:31:47--> 00:31:55

and it's a must. Therefore, a beloved Prophet said it's mentioned in Muslim that Al Hakim added number 319 that the Prophet said that I leave behind

00:31:57--> 00:32:33

the Quran and my example and mehsana so if anyone who holds to the Quran and Sunnah he will always be on the straight path he will not go wrong. So that's the reason Suna is the unavoidable second source of Islam without which you cannot understand Islam in totality. Clearly, it wouldn't be very practical just to have the Quran without the Hadees as you've eloquently explained Dr. Zakir And may Allah subhanaw taala guide all those people coming who otherwise are doing something else. Next question, is it correct for a Muslim to reply

00:32:34--> 00:32:44

in the same manner to the one who abuses him whilst he is doing Islam, as far as when a person is doing ifla or dava.

00:32:46--> 00:32:52

The guidelines are given in the Quran. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Nell chapter number 16, was the 125

00:32:53--> 00:32:56

do Elizabeth rebeccablack ma Walmart

00:32:57--> 00:33:12

Vijaya durability acid, which means invite all the way of the Lord with the wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them, and reason with them in the waste of the best, most gracious. So as far as Tao is concerned, or is less concern. We should do it

00:33:13--> 00:33:52

in ways that are best, most Gracious with beautiful preaching. Even if your opposite person, the Muslim or non Muslim by Lewis law, he gets angry, he starts cursing, he started doing verbal abuse, yet you should be kind and loving the way the Prophet was. And within the example of the Prophet that many a time the non Muslims they trouble the prophet and we know the story that there was a lady who's to always throw dirt on the Prophet. Whenever he used to pass by. She used to throw dirt on him. And one day when no dirt falls on him. He's wondering, how did this non Muslim they didn't throw dirt? So he went up to find out what's happened to her. And then he realizes that she was

00:33:52--> 00:34:03

sick. So then he goes and he prays for her. She was so happy that she accepts Islam. The Prophet did not retaliate in the same way. And we find terrorists at examples it's mentioned in say Bukhari

00:34:04--> 00:34:10

Hadith number 6030. That one's a Jew.

00:34:11--> 00:34:57

He comes in wishes the Prophet, a Salam aleikum, a Salaam Alaikum in Arabic means may that be on you? And the Prophet replies back on YouTube, I Sham Allah be pleased the wife of the Prophet, she healed this and she gets very angry. So it has to do that may Allah bless you made the Wrath of Allah Bian when she starts getting angry. So the Prophet tester that he should become you should be humbled, you should not get angry. So I Shama Lupita, she plays that, did you hear what they told you? So the Prophet replies, did you hear what I replied to them and my dua will be accepted, they will not be accepted. So this was the way the Prophet dealt with the people. It further mentioned in

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

say Muslim, while number four Hadith number six to eight, zero

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

That it's not proper for a person who's sick. When worker says, with a person with sincere that means it's not right for a believer, a believing Muslim, when work crosses on others in walk and speak rudely and verbal abuse, etc. And it's mentioned how the doctor made the number 2019

00:35:19--> 00:35:58

that a believer should not invoke curses. It's not correct for a believer to invoke curses. And therefore the Prophet always said that when people rang and he said that have come as a mercy and blessing and not come as Invoker of curses. So here we realized that this was the example that we have to follow. And as Allah says, In the Quran in surah, Chapter 33 verse 21, that very early in the Prophet is the most beautiful pattern of conduct. So while doing Dawa while doing Islam, we should never get angry, we should not retaliate, we should win them over winning always much better than either retaliating, if to be kind of soft and merciful.

00:35:59--> 00:36:51

Is the answer. Next question. Dr. Zakir is what is the ruling on the one who commits suicide? And furthermore, what can the parents do to reduce the punishment of the one who has committed suicide? As far as suicide is concerned? We discussed earlier that it is one of the major sins according to Imam Abu Dhabi. In his book alphabet, he puts to cite as number 29, in the list of 17 major sins. And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 195 make note your own hands the cause of a destruction, indicating very clearly that suicide is prohibited in Islam. And there are various Hadith which speak about this. It's mentioned in say Buhari, or in number 700

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

number 5778.

00:36:54--> 00:37:08

Where the Beloved Prophet masala Simon said that whoever throws himself from the mountain and falls and dies, he will keep on falling perpetually in the Hellfire forever.

00:37:09--> 00:37:51

And if a person drinks poison and dies, he will keep on in the hell have a bottle of poison and keep on drinking it and keep on dying in the hell. And if someone stabs himself, then in the Hellfire he keep on stabbing himself forever. And again, Allah messenger repeats a message in say Buhari or number 800 number 6047. Where the Beloved Prophet Musa lustrum said that if a person commits suicide, and kills himself, in the Hellfire, he'll keep on doing that same act will be found in the same way in the hell, the same way they killed himself, he will have the same action than in the hell.

00:37:52--> 00:38:13

And the beloved Professor Islam said, as mentioned, say Buhari was number four, number 3463. That there was a person who had a wound and it was pinning him too much. He was impatient. So it takes a knife and he cuts his hand, and then he bleeds to death. And the Prophet.

00:38:14--> 00:38:42

He says that because he was impatient, and he killed himself, he will not enter Paradise. And a similar Hadith is mentioned in say, Muslim world number two, in the book of Salah Hadith number 2133, that a person was brought to the Prophet what killed himself with a broad headed spear, and he had committed suicide was brought to the Prophet. So the Prophet did not read his general Salah.

00:38:43--> 00:39:01

From here we come to know that it is a major sin. But that doesn't mean when we come to know further we can know that the other sahabas did read the Salah. It doesn't mean that a person who commits suicide has done it's the biggest sin in Islam. It is a major sin. It is a big sin, but it does not tend to mount to cough.

00:39:02--> 00:39:41

And fala wishes and pleases he may forgive him, as Allah says in the Quran in surah Anissa chapter four verse 48. And it's vernissage chapter four verse 116. If Allah pleases me forgive anything, but the sin of shame. Can you forgive? that the reason in such cases when a person who commits suicide it's a major sin? Every Muslim should be discouraged, but if he does that, then the Muslims they should pray for him. Pray for us must further ask for forgiveness. And similarly as a question What should the parents do? Have a boss who knows committed suicide? So the parent should pray to Allah subhanaw taala to forgive the child if you have committed suicide, and inshallah Allah is Rahmani

00:39:41--> 00:40:00

Raheem. And if Allah pleases, he may forgive is that Allah has the answer. And may Allah subhana wa Taala forgive any of those people that have wrongfully killed themselves like this. The last question from our viewers today is some people think is not obligatory to

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

enjoying what is good and forbid what is evil. They quote the verse from sort of reminder, sort of five, verse 1050, you who believe God your own souls, if you follow the right guidance, no hurt can come to you for those who are in error to support their claim, is it the right interpretation or not? As far as the interpretation of this verse of the Quran is concerned, this verse says, that all you believe no harm will come to you, if you follow the right guidance. So the criteria of this verse is that you should follow the right guidance. And if you read the commentary of the first right guidance is what right guidance is enjoining what is good and forbidding what is wrong, as

00:40:43--> 00:41:19

Allah says in the Quran in surah, Allah Moran chapter number three was the 110 Quantum Hara motto friends, Atlanta's way Muslims, he had the best of people of all for mankind, and joining what is good and forbidding what is wrong morona Bill Maher have gotten home and communicate with Amina Bella in joining what is good and forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah? So if you have to be on the right guidance, Allah says, If to enjoy what is good and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. If you do not enjoy what is good, and if you do not forbid what is wrong, you are unfit to be called Mama. So even according to this was you have to enjoy what is good and forbid what is

00:41:19--> 00:42:01

wrong. And the criteria for any Muslim to go to Jenna are given in Surah chapter number 103 was the 123 received while us in in Sinaloa, because he lives in Amman. Well, I'm going to slowly hottie but also bill hacker to us over the summer. By the token of time, man is really in a state of loss except those who are faith. Those are righteous deeds, those exhort people to throat and those exhort people to patient and perseverance for any human being to go to Jenna, he requests for things that a man number one, righteous deeds, number two, number three, but also be exhorting people to throat. And number four, exhorting people to patience and perseverance. If any one of the four is

00:42:01--> 00:42:38

missing, you should not end agenda, you may be a very good Muslim, you may be offering Salah you may have gone for hygiene, maybe paying a card. But if you don't do dry if you don't enjoy what is good and what is wrong, you will not go to China. If allow us to forgive you and put you in jail. That's a different question. That is his prerogative, as Allah says in Surah, chapter four, verse 48, and 20. So chapter 416. If he wishes, he may forgive anything, the sin of fear cannot forgive. But our normal circumstances all four things are equally important. Human righteous deeds exhorting people to do that is Darwin, Islam and exhorting people to patient in procedures. Therefore dava and Islam

00:42:38--> 00:42:42

is one of the criteria for any Muslim for any human being to go to general.

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

Just

00:42:45--> 00:43:07

once again, Dr. Zach here, we've come to the end of the show. And I would ask all of those brothers and sisters who are watching to tune in at the same time, tomorrow, when we will be discussing very important topic of dour to non Muslims in sha Allah salam, Aleikum
