As far as the first category is concerned, that is the actions and deeds of a Muslim related to himself.

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

It is the same irrespective whether that Muslim lives in a Muslim society or a non Muslim society,

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

the actions and the deeds are the same.

00:00:25--> 00:00:36

There are certain concessions given in certain situations, but it does not differ, whether the Muslim is living in a Muslim society or the non Muslim society, it is the same.

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

For example, what is further

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

what is compulsory for a Muslim in a Muslim society is also further is also compulsory for a Muslim in a non Muslim society.

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

For example,

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

every Muslim

00:00:57--> 00:01:03

has to believe and worship only one Almighty God, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:05--> 00:01:13

irrespective whether you're living in a Muslim society or a non Muslim society, he should believe in tawheed he should worship only one Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:14--> 00:01:18

a Muslim has to pay five times a day minimum

00:01:19--> 00:01:26

in the Muslim society, the same has to be done by that Muslim, even if he lives in a non Muslim society.

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

Fine, there may be different situation

00:01:32--> 00:01:44

in a Muslim society, they may be a mosque in every area, they may be a mosque, in every second Street, which may not be the case in a non Muslim society. But yet,

00:01:45--> 00:01:52

if a Muslim is living a non Muslim society, he has to offer five times Salah it is complicity it is.

00:01:55--> 00:02:13

If the mosque is not close by, or he has to travel long and he cannot do that, he has to offer Salah maybe in his office or at home. But Salah is fun, he has no excuse to miss it. A Muslim irrespective whether he is living in a Muslim or non Muslim society he has to give zakat.

00:02:15--> 00:02:30

If he's entitled to give, if he has a saving of more than the nisab level, more than 85 grams of gold, he or she should give 2.5% of that excess wealth of that saving every lunar year in charity.

00:02:32--> 00:02:51

A Muslim cannot say that he's living in a non Muslim society and the standard of living is high or the place where he's living, it is expensive. Therefore, he will not give zakat. If he has a savings of more than the nisab level 85 grams of gold he or she should give Zakat every year

00:02:52--> 00:03:01

a Muslim irrespective of the living in a Muslim or non Muslim society, he has to fast in the month of Ramadan.

00:03:03--> 00:03:23

If the days are short in winter, maybe the timings will be less. If it's in summer, when the days are long. The timing of the fast would be longer, but he has to fast complicity he has no excuse. If you live in a non Western society, he has no excuse he has too fast. Similarly, a Muslim,

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

if he has the means to perform hajj, if he's an adult, he should at least perform Hajj once in his lifetime.

00:03:32--> 00:03:40

If he has the means health and money, he has to offer height. There's no excuse even if you live in a non Muslim society.

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

He may be living far away from Saudi Arabia from Makkah.

00:03:48--> 00:04:06

But if he has the means to travel that distance, he has to offer Hajj at least once in his lifetime it is found in this way, all the fries, all the actions and deeds which are compulsory for a Muslim in a Muslim society is also complicity in a non Muslim society.

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

A Muslim woman

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

she has to do a job.

00:04:13--> 00:04:25

Irrespective whether she's living in a Muslim or non Muslim society, she has no excuse that she's living in non Muslim society. That's the reason she will not do her job. There is no excuse. So far, it has to be done.

00:04:26--> 00:04:29

In this way, all the other funds being honest.

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

Speaking the truth, it is the same it does not differ.

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

Similarly, what is haram for a Muslim?

00:04:38--> 00:04:47

In a Muslim society is also haram for a Muslim in a non Muslim society. Whichever part of the world he lives in. Check is haram.

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

He is living in a Muslim society. It's also Haram. If he's living in a non Muslim society. There is no excuse that because he's staying in a non Muslim society or a western country. He can do

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

It's haram fraud the world.

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

Similarly,

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

fornication and adultery

00:05:09--> 00:05:16

it is haram for a Muslim irrespective whether they living in a Muslim or non Muslim society, irrespective which part of the world he lives in

00:05:17--> 00:05:21

Boko Haram whether he lives in a Muslim country or non Muslim country,

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

having non Zambia food, non halal food,

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

any meat

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

which is not sorted by the Islamic method

00:05:31--> 00:06:00

or which Quran does not information do it is haram irrespective are they living in a Muslim on society, in short, whatever is farther and whatever is haram, for a Muslim, it is the same throughout the world. Irrespective whether you're living in a Muslim or a non Muslim society, there are many Muslims who give excuse that because I'm living in a western country or because I'm living in non Muslim society. Some things are excused, what is first

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

what is haram is haram.

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

As far as the other aspects are concerned,

00:06:08--> 00:06:12

regarding mazahub things, which are encouraged

00:06:14--> 00:06:21

those with a considered Asana most of singlish is encouraged. It is the same also. But

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

there may be a little bit leniency. For example, covering the head, for a Muslim man,

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

or wearing a cap is Muslim, it is the son of the Prophet.

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

But if you feel that we're living in a non Muslim society,

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

and you feel that wearing a cap

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

may endanger your life, and if you want to avoid that act, you can do it because wearing a cap is not further than Islam. If you do it, you will get plus points. If you don't do it, you have no loss, but you will not get the plus points.

00:07:01--> 00:07:09

So, live in a non Muslim society, the thing is just muster hub, if you fear regarding certain aspects and you avoid it,

00:07:11--> 00:07:15

you will not get the plus points. Similarly things which are mcru

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

thing which are discouraged

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

are the same for the world. But they can be a little bit leniency.

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

For example,

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

going for the call of nature

00:07:31--> 00:07:31

standing

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

and doing the call of nature, it is makrooh.

00:07:37--> 00:08:07

But if you are living in a western country, and the toilets may not permit you and if you do it, there is no problem but you will lose the plus points. You don't get negative points. So, as far as the fourth and the harems are concerned, there is no excuse at all. As far as the other aspects are concerned about the Sunnah and the mcru. If you want to avoid it for certain reason, you can do it you will not get negative points but you will lose the positive points.

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

This was in short regarding the first category

00:08:13--> 00:08:16

of a behavior of a Muslim in a non Muslim society.
