I welcome all the viewers of the pitch TV network
of pitch TV English. The pitch to you do the pitch TV Bangla, the pitch TV Chinese and my four social media platforms which are Facebook, the YouTube channel, the Instagram and Twitter. I will come all the wheels with Islamic greetings. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
My peace, mercy and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala of Almighty God be on all of you.
I would like to wish
Ramadan Mubarak, a very happy Ramadan. to all the viewers.
I met prison militia. And this is the fifth of Ramadan.
And in most parts of the world today, the fifth from Zion in some parts like the Indian subcontinent, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, it is a photo from Nan. And I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that me he may our discipline better than all the previous room Dan, and Peter last minute Allah that may become closer
to him. And we follow more of Islam during the month of Ramadan and continue doing it after that. Before I start my short talk for today, I would like to remind you that you can write down all your questions, you can text, all the questions that you have on a WhatsApp message, two,
plus six zero,
Repeat. You can text all your questions.
And also mention your name, the city and the country of origin as a WhatsApp message two plus six zero
And last time when I was live on last Saturday, about three days back Alhamdulillah. In the span of one and a half hour, we received 2327 Questions Only on WhatsApp.
And we received
more than 206,000
messages, comments on the Facebook auto which more than more than 20,000 more questions, and we received another few 1000 questions on YouTube. So overall, we received more than 25,000 questions out of which I was only able to answer 14 of the questions. Last time I spent about half my time giving a talk and half operational session. This time inshallah I'll make my talk short so that we can entertain more of the questions.
And it's impossible to answer 25,000 questions in a span of one and a half hour. Even if I give one and a half hour everyday in the full year. I will not be able to complete all the 25,000 questions
all those want to ask questions they can even ask on their social media, on the Facebook on the YouTube but it becomes difficult for us to select questions from the Facebook and the YouTube because there are too many and it's not that well formulated. So if you the four if you want your questions to be asked that are more chances if you text as a WhatsApp message. If you're on the Facebook, if you write on the Facebook yet there are chances last time majority of the questions to third were from the we picked up from the WhatsApp messages, a few from the Facebook and a couple from the YouTube this time to more than two thirds. Maybe 70% would be from the WhatsApp messages. A
few would be from the Facebook The question is asked and maybe a few also from the YouTube. Again, before I start the talk, you can text your questions, you can start testing your questions at the text message on WhatsApp
with mentioning your name, the city and the country of residence as a WhatsApp message two plus six zero double 1269
53895 I repeat plus six zero double 126953895
for today's short talk is
let isolation brought you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala
our last episodes topic walls and um boundary lockdown
and we have discussed the various disadvantages of lockdown. And when we ask people what is the maximum loss and damage done by the lockdown, most of them say there is economic loss to the to the country, the businesses are going in loss, the loss of employment, but according to me the maximum loss that this lockdown has done is closure of the masjid, the mosques for the public to pray the five times Allah
disappointing to me is the major drawback, the major loss of this lockdown, where more than 50% of the world today, majority of the world today is facing a lockdown and most of the mosques toward the world toward the world are close down
as and today and this Ramadan would be different than all the earlier
because of the lockdown
what I can think of there are four negative factors as far as our activities are concerned because of the lockdown number one is we will not be able to pray the five times Salah, the congregational Salah, in the mosque number two, we will not be able to offer the therapy, which we do in the month of Ramadan. Number three, we will not be able to perform at the caf because performing at the caf one of the criteria is it should be done in a mosque and number four, we will not be able to perform Amara
in the month of Ramadan, though very small percentage do it
but we can always turn the tables over and let this lock down be a benefit for us. If you're careful and if we pay proper attention inshallah, we can convert this negative factor to a positive factor
because we know that we cannot wait because we are one of the requirements of the mosque. Now we are locked in our homes for the complete month of Ramadan, even though we cannot perform ethica for the last 10 days, those who do this time all of us at least most of us are there at home.
So, you can say that in isolation
for the complete month of Ramadan
and it may not be the same as at the caf, but because the period is three times more inshallah, inshallah we can try and convert it to equal blessing,
equal benefit or maybe even more depending on how we perform and what activities we do in the month of Ramadan sort of discuss today the various important acts that a Muslim should do
in the month of Ramadan or try his level best to do and some of them because of isolation may be beneficial. Some maybe not but overall inshallah if we pay attention we can convert it into a beneficial incidents this lockdown
and I will not be discussing all the things that it should do in a man but I'll try and highlight the major things in order for the fries than the most perhaps the tone of the market that the near mokuba
I will try and list at least more than 40 important acts that a Muslim should do in the month of Ramadan
we have to generally in Roman as far as possible pre 510 compulsory Salah in the mosque
most of the scholars that suffered from go to the extent like your mama Bobby he says that if you do not pray in the mosque, the five time compulsory Salah without a valid reason it is the 65th major sin in Islam
but now because of the lockdown situation inshallah Allah will not hold and it's possible that we cannot pray in the mosque because they have been closed but we should see to it that we should at least pray five times Salah during Ramadan in JAMA
at your home
drama constitutes even off to people
because the better but minimum two it can be with your father can be with your brother it can be with your son it can be with your mother it can be with your wife it can be with your daughter see to it that the family together praise
and the woman for whom normally most of the time may not be going to the mosque in London at least known to have an opportunity to perform Jama so for the woman it will be good that they will be offering congregation inshallah much more number of time than what they should do before most of them
and see to it that you perform Salah on time. There are a high possibility that even those people who go to mosque when they have to pray at home they procrastinated they delayed okay we have to pray no we have four people five people together what's the harm if you delay and then you keep on delaying for half an hour wanna you may have been delayed just before the time of the next Salah which is which is mcru when the Prophet said you should pray as early as possible. So see to it that you pray all the five times compacity Salah in the house in JAMA as early as possible the moment we are the other nor the moment your mobile ring for the time for Salah as soon as possible made the
salah and pray Gemma number two
that all of us the Muslims
we should fast
during the treatment of harm done except those who excuse though the administration or those who are sick or the traveling the exception but as a general rule, all the Muslims should fast the complete month of Ramadan Allah Beloved Prophet masala sunset, it mentioned say Buhari was number three, number 1901. that anyone who fasts the complete month of Ramadan with sincere faith and seeking the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala all this past sins will be forgiven.
all those who have to give Zakat see to it that the gift does occur. If they have not done so good deeds are complicit to give him land, but I'm not gonna get multiple demos up and record is the third pillar of Islam where every rich Muslim, adult Muslim, by the saving of more than than the sub level, more than 85 grams of gold should give 2.5% of that saving every year in charity called soccer.
Number four, all of a Muslim should ensure that we do not do a single haram activity in this manner from that we obtained from all the major sins
and even the lesser major sins as well as all the minuses. This is the best time of the year where you can abstain from some of the sins which you do and you cannot stop this is the best time to use the opportunity actron from 100% all this invader major or minor
besides praying the fight and compulsory Salah
the first fella, you should ensure that you also pray, the sooner the macula our beloved prophet Muslim said that anyone who offers dwell Raka of Salah said the further Salah
he shall get house agenda and these 12 raha asuna democra. The Torah kosuna before the federal Salah, the two plus two for a kosuna before the door Salah
the two rasuna after the merger of salah and two rasuna after Salah. So the total there are 12 sort of democrator. So besides the 17 four plus three with the 20 odd even pray these 12 record that is 32 rakaat of Salah
in Ramadan see to it that you do your soul. Some of us they have dinner and the sleep and they don't get up for school because they don't disturb the sleep which is not appropriate. Doing suffer is what the prophet recommended and we should do it
that see to it that the soul is done as late as possible just before the further other many people for security and safety. They stop
few minutes maybe 10 minutes before 15 minutes before 20 minutes before but delaying the sewer as late as possible. Just before the further fella is recommended.
while you're breaking the fast they should be as early as possible the moment the sunset, you should break a fast and a beloved masala salon
said that Obama will be on the straight path as long as the haste in in breaking the fast and they delay this over.
So hastening and breaking the fast is very important. So now, it is recommended. Many of us say that for safety, you know we will break the fast maybe five minutes late or three minutes late. There is no logical reason for that, especially now, in the age of electronic age, there are watches available that are mobile phone available. And especially now, since we have smartphones, you can link the time of your phone to the satellite, so there won't even be a delay of a second. So once you know scientifically when is the sun going to set
and if the time is up, Why delay for five minutes or three minutes, the moment the time is up hastin so that we follow haste in breaking the fast so that you follow the recommendation of a beloved prophet masala. While you break the fast the Prophet recommended that we should have dates and water.
It is preferable. I'm not going to give the details and the references of the Hadith all this level level in my largest series are from Lana de traductores arcade, because I want to cut short my speech so I'm just going to say the points as soon as possible in brief
10th point is that when we break the fast, we should say the authentic what many of us say unattended and the most authentic is
the hubbas amount
up to let the ruku
what's up at the edge
inshallah, this dua is the most authentic, there are various dua which are from zafer did we prefer that we said authentic? Do I have any bring the first
number 11. Before we break the first
we should pray to Allah subhanaw taala and supplicate and Buddha because one of the times when the more chance of being accepted is when a fasting person makes a door especially before breaking the fast a few minutes before breaking the fast. So you should take advantage of this and see to it that you
do as much as possible.
The point is that we should feed the poor people with the star. If you have low profits said if you feed the poor people and give them a star, then you get the other as though you have fasted without Roger being decreased from the person who was fasting. And now because they are locked down it's not necessary that we have to go with them and eat with them. When we're feeding them. You can always make provision that our various NGOs who are asking for support specially in the long run where people can get the food and now in the month of Ramadan you get double digit not only are you making them survive, you're also giving them a star in Charlotte, grab this opportunity and see to it that
you give to as many of the poor people as you can.
The 13 point is that we should offer therapy. And as I mentioned that normally we offer therapy in the mosque and because of the lockdown most of the most have been shut for the general public. So unfortunately we cannot offer therapy in the mosque. But surely we can offer a talk and while offering therapy if you have half is in your house, that is the best let him lead the therapy. Dog completing the Quran is not affected in therapy but as much of the Quran you recite the most obligate so see to it reset as much as a friend and who will from your family knows the maximum portion of the Quran let him be the Imam so that you can recite as much as possible in the therapy.
If there are possibility that most of the people or all the people in the house do not know a large portion of the Quran only know a few of the surahs of the Jews ummah. Then
it there is an option that anyone of the family member, a male family member adult can lead the Quran lead the taraweeh by holding the most of of the Quran in the hand or holding a tablet or the mobile phone which has the Quran so that he can recite more of the Quran. reciting from the memory if you have this is the best but if you're not our houses, you should recite only for a class or Serena's and the Torah will be so short, it is preferable you can hold the Quran and read from the Quran. Besides getting the Sahaba of the Torah We will also get the Sahaba feeding. It will not be more than the Sahaba for half a 3d but at least instead of reciting short sutras. You can read the
Quran, maybe recite one juice every day or have just whatever your capacities and you
make the best of it.
The next is
the recommended act during Ramadan, it is possible
that the 14 recommended act.
And a beloved Prophet said you can read to rocket and as much as you can Salatu ha, the salado Doha mainly starts approximately 15 to 20 minutes after the fudger
after the sunrise and ends just 1520 minutes before the Sunday that in speech before the whole time,
the prophet said you can eat a cotton as much as you want the profit generally, mostly heated for a cotton. So if you can read for a cut two plus two salads $1 that is preferable even to an accepted but preferable if for a cut. And the time preferred by the prophet is in the second half. So that you know closer to the sun at its peak, that is after after the midpoint of the sunrise and the sun at its peak. Because that time, Hellfire is more hot so that's a more preferable demo you can start anytime 20 minutes after the sunrise up to 1520 minutes before the Senate speak.
point recommended point during the month of Ramadan is that give as much as additional charity as possible. Besides the Socratic which is further the further the further besides that give as much it as possible. And, and Allah smart Allah says in the Quran Surah Baqarah chapter two verse two to 61 if someone throws one corn, or one grain of corn in the way of Allah subhanaw taala he will give you seven years each bearing 100 crowns, that means you get a suburb of 700 times a profit of 70,000%
This is a normal time in Ramadan, it's multiplied. So make the best opportunity do as much of it as you can. In this blessed month have
doors of the Prophet for every act that you do.
You enter the toilet there the door you exit the toilet there the door you wear new clothes that are lower, look into the mirror, as many dollars of the profit that is there in the lifetime do as much as you possible you will get most of our business motto from that
repent in this month of Ramadan as much as you can repenting.
This Ramadan is also called as the month of repentance. If you repent inshallah Allah will accept your repentance if you repent sincerely, and inshallah Allah will forgive all your pastors
do as much of Vicar as possible of Allah subhanaw taala in this month of Ramadan, in the daytime in the nighttime,
it is the best opportunity to read as much as the Quran as you can. As much as of the Quran you read. If you normally read maybe 10 minutes this time read it 15 minutes half an hour. If you are reading one page, read five page if 35 pages 10 page, increase in their citation of the Quran
you will get a lot of
perform as many good deeds as you can in this month from that.
if someone irritates you, or makes you angry, don't get angry say I'm fasting and fasting and fasting
in this month of Ramadan ethic of his advice the son especially the last minute but because of the lockdown, most of the massages are closed and you cannot wet the calf. But as I mentioned earlier, let's make the best opportunity. isolate yourself complete in the full month of Ramadan. You most of all Don't rush to go to offices. There is no visitors visiting you it's only your family. So do
more, get yourself more attached to our last marathon lead this month of isolation during them done, get you closer to Allah subhanaw taala see to it that you make it more beneficial than the other I'm not
for the lead record.
Lead record as mentioned before and equal to 1000 years
about more than 82 years of your life and try and seek it in the last 10 nights.
And if you get that all your sins will be forgiven. It will be a great idea for you. And this is not a mustard you should go in the mosque. You can do it at home and during
The last 10 nights he tweeted to me, Baba.
And the next point is that do additional camera lead, besides the therapy that you do, and taraweeh normally we pray immediately after, after the Isha notes at home, you can pray at the much more preferred time which is the last one third of the night so that we can be paid last one third of the night, it's preferable, the longer it is the better it is. And Luca will do more Salah if you're putting in normal time then seek to do pray additional in the last month or night in the last 10 nights, because there are high chances that they will be led rather see to do have as much detail as possible. do extra Salah do the extra camera let
25th point is do task and that's good enough means you do verification of your soul see to it that to interrogate you interest, perspective yourself and see to it that you improve all your false and do as much as good deeds as possible.
clever minute act that can be done is do as much as soon as the Beloved Prophet
for example when you wear slippers you have a right hand when you're eating Dead Sea to eat you eat in the odd numbers 135 you as much as soon as possible throughout the day wide
as much as much as possible all if possible. For example, to stand in the waters Nakuru you know drinking water sit and drink water.
read as much of authentic hadith of the beloved partner masala Salaam. The more you can read say Buhari is a Muslim, you can read the other books of course,
you can read Reza Salim, and as much as possible of the serum of the Prophet
see to it there to pay attention on the Sunnah especially the miswak over the Prophet didn't miss what even during Ramadan, some people have a misconception that you can't use miss what you can and it is recommended to use use the miswak
if it is recommended by the prophet that if you do omura during Hajj or during Ramadan, you get the salvage now it's unfortunate that all of us cannot do this ombre because the Masjid Haram in Makkah it is closed because of the lockdown inshallah Pedro last minute data that we may get more opportunity in the future.
you meet people, you forgive them, not that you have to meet them personally but for the long run, whether on the phone, social meeting, you forgive as many people as you can, as you can imagine over a man because if you forgive
the human May, Allah will inshallah forgive you.
Do as much as Islam that you can do. Whether using the social media, on WhatsApp, on Facebook, utilize these time to Islam with your friends.
even do Dawa.
To your to your friends. This is the 33rd
document in the month of Ramadan Dawa to your non Muslim friends invite them towards Islam, there are more chances that the hearts will open towards Islam in the month of Ramadan. Since a gate of heavens open the gates of hell are closed and shaitan the devils they're chained
the first salah and the sooner the makeda even read the sooner the Gurmukh read especially in the month of Ramadan and their attention into gear mokuba
that is to rocket Sana yarmulke after the door Salah two plus two for occurred before the onset of fidella to rocket before the magnet for salah and to record before the Isha for Salah. So basically the 10 record of
sort of the karma, so totally there are 17 plus 320 plus 12 is another makeda that's 32 and then 10 of the gearmotor that is 42. If you add the width it becomes as if you add the tarawih it becomes an additional eight that become 50. If you add the serrato it becomes additional for that 50 for the secret that you at least read 50 for minimum
in a day and you can keep on adding that soon after doo doo and
Farther but please try and do it this it will be it will be beneficial for you.
This is the 34th recommended Act, the 35th recommended act in the month of Ramadan is that do more and more increase in your door and your application after the Salah to madhwa in the month of Ramadan inshallah Allah will accepted
if that you attend Islamic lectures, physically if you cannot, there are live sessions. And now because of social media, there are for many conferences and lectures we can attend live like the what you're doing today. You're watching me live, I'm in Malaysia, and people from all over the world, maybe more than 200 countries in the world. They are seeing on the pitch TV network their thing on the social media, the Facebook, and millions of watching
the opportunity live programs.
Next, you can even see recorded programs you can select your examination on YouTube, on the other social media, the video recordings and try and get as much knowledge as possible.
In this month of Ramadan
you have to be give more time to your family
in the month of Ramadan if you more time and now because you're logged on at home, sit with that you spend more time with a family, get the other come close to Allah subhanaw taala a beloved Prophet said the best amongst you Is he who's the best of the family, to the wife to the children etc. So see to it that you made the most of it.
read as much as of the seed of the Prophet. And the best book I can recommend is of
Mubarak so Federman, pre Mubarak Puri, cipher Manoir, Puri, the silk nectar,
and they came up to
see to it in this month of Ramadan.
you meet others, and you help them as much as you can, in this month of Ramadan, the 41st point be more cheerful and happy. And the last 42nd point I would like to mention beside various other points, is that see to it that you spread love and affection and care to the other people around you. This was just in brief about the 42 recommended things that you can do in the month off from that and take the opportunity of the isolation being at home. And you come closer to Allah subhanaw taala. I'm sorry today also I spoke for about half an hour. I thought I'd speak for 20 minutes, but I did speak less than last time so that we can have more time for for the question answer session.
I'll remind you that you can mention your
questions, preferably on the WhatsApp as a text message to with writing your name as well as the city and the country of residence. You can take this message to the WhatsApp number plus six zero double 126953895 repeat plus six zero double 126953895.
We will try and pick up what the team was trying to select questions. We have some questions which are pending. We'll be taking also the new questions that are coming even on the Facebook as well as and just to tell you that in the last time I came live on the Facebook alone 911,000 people watched it more than 911,000 people Mashallah it reached a hamdulillah
sorry, watched it reached about two point more than 2.8 million people it reached only on the Facebook, out of which more than 911,000 people watched it. And 206,000 people more than that give comments and they're more than 20,000 questions
and shallow can find your question you gave it you can even write on your Facebook on on the YouTube on the Instagram but the chances are more they'll be selected from the WhatsApp and
there are various messages I can't see
there is a lot of things many people are saying salams Alexei while he was around all of you that are made mad there are people love you and and I love you too. There is Mateen Rana I think I'm from mirror and Assalamualaikum too, too. There is an Anita Rahman thanks, thanks to YouTube from Afghanistan via farrakhan
is saying May Allah bless you may Allah bless you too. We have some people saying we love you welcome and May Allah subhanho wa Taala love you
To me, Allah bless you and your family from humble serve
and so on. We will just
go on to the questions.
Some have been selected and my team is sending me questions after they have selected.
The first question is
from a non Muslim
he think Peace be upon you. My name is Abraham from New Delhi. The question is when people revert back to Islam, like Cassius Clay,
Sonny Bill Williams, and Mike Tyson
and many more. So Muslim said that God gave them guidance. So that's why they diverted I wanted to know why he God didn't give guidance to everyone. Why he gave guidance to some people and not to all
and this is a very important question by Abra Abraham.
Allah says, In the girls Quran, in Surah Yunus chapter number 10, was the 99 that if he wanted, he could have made all the human beings in this world as believers. So for Allah to make 100% of the human beings now there are more than 7.7 5 billion human beings, for Allah to make all the human being that believers as Muslim is very easy confession. But the question is, that we human beings are one of the best creations of Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah says in the Quran in surah, multitap number 67 was number two, I love the little mortal Hatter, it is us created that and life to test which is good indeed. So, this life is a test for the hereafter. So when you are coming in,
coming for a test for an examination, the supervisor cannot help you. And even if you do something wrong can pass. I mean supervisor Can, can can see to it that you don't, that you don't break the rules, the teacher can give you grace marks, but cannot pass you if you have failed and did not write anything or broke all the rules. So in the same fashion, regarding the question, if Allah wanted you could I meet all the human beings a Muslim but then what is the difference? All the the human all the creation of Allah subhanaw taala except the jinn and the human beings, they obey Him. So what difference is in this creation of human being regarding Why does he select few people, there
are some criteria for Allah to select who he guides. Allah says in the Quran surah chapter number 29 was from 69. That if you strive in the pathway of Allah subhana wa Taala he will open up your pathways that means anyone, whether Muslim or non Muslim, if he strives if he struggles,
in the path of Almighty God, Allah subhanaw taala he will open up the path with all these people, whether it be Cassius Clay, whether it be Mike Tyson, whether whether it be cashed even if you read the history, when when they were not Muslim. This time, they let you hear the story, the bag of cash Stephen was a pop singer, now with colleagues of Islam. When his life was in India, he said that if if you saved my life, oh my god, I will dedicate my life towards you. And then someone gave me a copy of the Quran. He read the Quran and he came close to Islam. So if you strive irrespective whether you're a Christian or a Hindu, or a non Muslim, if you sincerely strive to come too close to
Allah subhanho wa Taala you will come close to Almighty God Allah subhanaw taala. So the only criteria required for you striving and struggling that I want to find the true Almighty God and follow His commandments. inshallah, Allah will get you closer, whether you will read the Quran come close to Allah, whether you will hear the lecture of a diet come close to Allah, you may attend the event you may hear the Adhan, the main criteria is you strive to come close with Almighty God and inshallah Allah will give you their hope answer the question.
The question by by moment that it's a question that just came on the WhatsApp from West Bengal, India, I gave our to my non Muslim friend, and she accepted Islam on the first of Ramadan, but she's married and has a little child. Now she can't tell her family that
gondola family that she had accepted Islam. So my question is, is it
Okay, if he worships idols till she can tell her family about Islam. One more question Is it okay if a man gives power to woman? Thank you. Father, why is it okay that she can worship idols till the time she informed the family? idol worship is the biggest thing in Islam. Allah says in the Quran in surah a Nephi chapter 448 and it's 116. If Allah pleases me forgive anything but the sin of Sheikh he will never forgive.
So idol worship is the biggest sin. After do we share if we ask for forgiveness, inshallah Allah will forgive that also, now that she has, that she has accepted Islam, she should not do idol worship, and it's not a must. In the Hindu family, they don't do idol worship every day. If a family will very pass and do the rituals. Surely you can make an excuse and avoid doing it. If you feel telling your family is little bit risky, now you can delay in telling maybe after a few days after a few weeks, no problem, but see to it that you stay away from the sins, especially the major sin of idol worship. Can a man give Dawa to a woman Yes, as long as he doesn't break the rules of the
hijab. Like I'm coming on the beach TV, on the Facebook on the social media and there are hundreds and 1000s of ladies also watching no problem. But many people say that they want to do one one hour with a non with a man doing to a woman to a non meetup that is not recommended. And especially in a closed room. The Prophet said, If a man and a woman the opposite sex in a closed room, and there is no third person, the third person is the devil. So you have to maintain the hijab. You cannot do one to one hour you cannot laugh and joke with an amiram you can talk but we lowering your gifts are centered. They're not too much clump patient, they put too much complacent in your voice. So
maintaining the hijab, you can do best is through books, or through social media of them. So the question
there are many people
defied federal law saying please thanks to you. There is
killer as a judge, why don't you come to Pakistan? insha Allah when Allah wills AFRICOM
the next question is
that I am Abdullah from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. My question is that if a Muslim dies in a plague, will he be called a martyr? Or will you just get the Sahaba for matter?
There are various studies talking about this incident of a person dying in the play, a beloved for no solo sunset.
It's mentioned at the top tirmidhi. One, number two, habit number 1063. The Prophet said, there are five types of martyrs in Islam,
the one who is killed, in the way of Allah subhanaw taala.
A person who dies in the plague, a person who dies of stomach illness, a person who dies while drowning, and a person who dies in a crash, or collapse, maybe houses collapse. So these five categories of the people according the Prophet, they are matters. So if a person dies in plague, yes, he's called as a matter
in a major way, number 400. Number 2804. The Prophet asks one of the servers that What do you know about the martyrs amongst you? So he said, that those who are killed in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala matters? Then the Prophet replied, If this was the only case that matters in my alma would be very few. Then he said, martez are those who are killed in the way of Allah? martyrs? Are those who die in the house of Allah? martyrs are those who die because of stomach illness? martyrs or do those who die in a plague? And then, in addition by another narrator say that matters are those who even who even die and counting. So these are five categories of people who the Prophet said, are martyrs.
Regarding the question, if a person dies in a plague, will he get he called a martyr? Or will he get a swab of a martyr? There's another Hadith of the Prophet masala salam,
which is mentioned inside Buhari one number seven, number 5734. Where the beloved former masala Sallam said
I'm in love with
It said that the Prophet said that Allah sends plagues as a punishment
than believers to whomever he wants.
And as for the believers, it is a blessing.
And if a believers
lives patiently, and believing that nothing will befall him, except what Allah has ordained for him, Allah says he will get a reward of a matter. In this Hadith, a person who lives patiently is the criteria and believe that nothing will be formal before Nothing will happen to him, except for the audit by Allah Spano tala, he gets the swap of a monitor and appoint a manager. He says ramola that there are three categories of people in this. A person who dies in play, he gets the sum up of plague, a person who's affected by plague, but does not die. He too gets the job of a martyr and a person who during plague is patient, and afraid that nothing will befall him and he does not get
sick. He does not die yet. He gets the job of a matter, but a person who dive in plake besides being called a matter, he's also gets a swab of a matter he gets both I
hope that answers the question.
Is it allowed to kiss one's wife
while fostering and does kissing have one? any effect on one fast
scan? Husband kisses live during fasting.
Howdy in Santa tirmidhi Why? number three? How did number
1297 holiday Sham Allah be pleased with her. She said that the Prophet peace be upon him.
He kissed and embraced his wives during fasting many times.
And he had more control over his desires than any one of you. That means kissing and embracing your wife during fasting is accepted is permitted as long as you can control your desire.
When a person comes in us, the prophet Can I kiss my wife during fasting? The Prophet says yes. Another person comes in as the Prophet. Can I kiss my wife? Well, faster he says no. So Savas asked me the first person who said yes, the second he said no why. So he said, I knew the first person could control his desires after giving the second person could not therefore I said yes to the first person and do to the second person. That means you're allowed to kiss your wife and embrace your wife during fasting as long as you can control your desire and do not go ahead and do anything which will break the fast you do not commit any act which are fast breakers. If you have control, you can
you can kiss your wife and he will embrace you.
There's another question
by one of the person on the WhatsApp is Assalamualaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh Dr. Zakir uncle. My name is Serbia tabassum from Dhaka, Bangladesh question How to Become Allah favorite Muslim? How can I become doctors I can I am a big fan of yours Please pray for me so that I can become doctors I can I can enter general for those. We Bangladeshi people love you. And respective there's a similar question asked so I've asked my team to club the question which are similar so that more people happy that are asked the questions that are answered the question. A similar question is asked by a boon Zafar a book of food Han from Pakistan. So I'm from Pakistan and I'm a great admirer of you, my
profession is nursing. And my question is how can I become like you?
The third question similar to that
Assalamu alaikum Sir, I am Rahul. Mia from India. I want to be a DI sir. Please tell me what should I do? I want to become like you and check out my data.
Regarding the basic question, all the three people have asked that that all of them want to become a DI like me, the 120 Delta for those. Let me tell you the outset that it's not compulsory to become like me to enter general for those. As far as I'm concerned. I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that we accept my efforts.
for the weekend,
and I consider there are millions of people who are better than me in terms of knowledge, in terms of Dawa, it has been considerably It is only because of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala It is only because of the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala that water was a little bit I have achieved it because of him.
The basic, I don't want to think of myself that there are you know, hundreds of 1000s of people have more knowledgeable than me, how come? People come for my talks? How can people listen to me on the Facebook on YouTube, I wonder?
And then that reminds me, you know that it is three criteria which I always say is important. Number one, is that Allah says in the Quran for him Ron chapter three was the 160 that if Allah helps you, men can overcome you. If Allah for six knew who was dead, then who can help you. So let the believers put their trust in Allah.
Number one, is having faith and trust in Allah. Number two, Allah says in Surah chapter number 29 was number 69. If you strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala, he will open up your pathways, second is striving, struggling hard work. Number three, Allah says in Surah, Chapter 16 was 43. And chapter number 21 was number seven. First Alou holistically in cuando, la talman. If you don't know as the person who's an expert, the third is the technique. So number one is allows help. Second is striving and struggling and hard work. Number three is technique.
As far as getting,
the more you have faith in Allah subhanaw taala The more you worship Him, the more you believe in Him, the more you have trusted him, inshallah he will help you imagine, I couldn't have dreamt in my wildest dream of speaking in front of 25 people, I could have dreamt of becoming the best surgeon in the world, the best doctor in the world. But in my wildest dream, I could not have dreamt of speaking in front of 25 people. Because as many of you know that I was a stammer since childhood. And people used to ask me what is my name after my name is Arthur locket? So imagine what I cannot dream. When I started doing dour when I went on the stage, I realized that I did not remember most
of the people when they were in front of public, they get cold feet. For me it was opposite. When I speak one to one I used to stammer, but in public, my stammering managed then later on when I asked to speak one to one to non Muslims, even that dominant North timer with Muslims is to stammer, and slowly, slowly Alhamdulillah my stumbling upon reducing, and yet a stammer of the stage. Allah helps me Allah. And I'm sure most of the millions of people are watching today. Most of you may have been multiple times better than what I was when I started madaba Donatella can make such a person who's a stammer give lectures with a large number of attendee so why can't you do that? I don't think so.
I've really done any great deed. Neither have I sacrificed something. People tell you I'm a fool that lF medical profession, some people come and say oh, because you sacrifice the medical profession. There is no sacrifice,
giving up a medical profession as compared to what Allah has given me in the field of Dawa everything. People watching
the Favorites ad which was not the reason why we did it. The recognition that is often meeting me leaving the medical profession is not even the drop in the ocean and unlike a bit ocean.
So the basic thing we realize is that we should sacrifice the things that you love for the sake of Allah. If you sacrifice for the sake of Allah, if you take one step in the way of Allah, Allah will take multiple desmo close to you.
So number one is sacrifice. love Allah, trust Allah, have faith in him and then ask an expert as far as we have our training programs we had in the past, maybe trained people, but number one, help of Allah number two is striving and struggling. And last is the training. Training you got a must I did not get training. It was Allah who helped me that's the least important and to go to gender for those who follow the Quran and follow the say Hadith as much as implement of the Glorious Quran as much as you implement of the say Hadith and the commandments of the Prophet and Allah. There are more chances that you will end agenda in sha Allah genitive for those
there are many
messages from the beta con from Mama Shafiq from a Milan Rashid, from Russia for Zane from aliens from Fulton pornea and Milan for all of you.
It's difficult to answer all the questions all received 1000s
another question which is related
the respected Dr. Zakir Naik
Sir, I am masa Hussain, city of rampurhat, West Bengal India, do you have any trick for memorizing from different verses of the Quran or books of the same thing? a similar question as maybe the faheem from Kashmir from Pakistan, do you have a photographic memory? What is the reason behind your phenomenal memory? And again the answer is the same what I gave earlier that first is a lot of help. Second is struggling and striving and third is technique. There are various techniques for memory which you get when you do MBA courses, which is called as mapping and all the others and believe me all these techniques have good limitations. The best is help of Allah
certain thing that they're there when you memorize something after about 20 minutes again rehearse it again you have said after to us again after few hours, the more you rehearse it and revise it there are more chances it will be part of you then next day, the more you use it, the more it becomes part of memory and once it goes into a permanent memory then even if you don't revise it will be in your memory for example three fathia almost all the Muslims all the Muslim No sir if it even you get a firm asleep and they ask you to decide who can decide because that has gone in the permanent memory.
So the more you revise, the more you practice, it becomes part of memory. I don't consider myself that I've got photogenic memory. What I do is I strive after keep on revising. I know that if this lecture is about 100 150 quotations from Quran and Hadith, if I don't revise maybe I miss a 90% if I revise I may be able to say 99% so before every lecture I try and revise as much as possible, so that it is closer to the accuracy. So more you strive The more you struggle, the more you have faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah will be more successful.
The next question
I am Abdul Rahman from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
A prophet peace be upon him said there is no other
contagious disease. Is this not contradicting?
With the medical science?
Yes, there is a hadith of a beloved prophet muscle solemn didn't say Buhari won number seven, had the number 5707 when the Beloved Prophet said there is no
vote you have to understand that you have to read and it say that there are no bad government that cetera and and continues that it. But if you read
the Shara and the commentary of this Hadith, it says that you're what the prophet meant was, when there is no otherwise there is no contagious disease, which can be conveyed without the permission of Allah subhanaw taala it means that no one can acquire any contagious disease unless it is permitted by law.
It is not just a blanket statement that there is no contagious diseases. Otherwise, as you mentioned correctly, it would be against medical science. There are and if you read the complete Hadith that says there's no other word, there's no contagious diseases, meaning
there is no contagious disease, it is not conveyed unless with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala, and there's no bad omen, etc. And it says that if you see a leper, run away from it, as we have seen a line
this indicates that leprosy is a contagious disease. And the Prophet is that when you when you see a person having contagious disease, you don't have a indicating that is contagious disease. So if you read the complete Hadith, you understand that the context is that you cannot get any contagious disease or any disease, unless with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. And the other additional quoted, that we have direct proportion to the contagious diseases. So that means of course there is contagious disease, but have faith in Allah subhanaw taala that nothing will befall you, unless except with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala so according to the Hadith that are contagious
disease according to rendre contagious diseases. Quran said that Allah smart Allah said plague
Under beneath rain and sort of Baccarat chap number two was 59. So there are contagious disease, Allah and Allah says and the Prophet said what precautions you should take, but it gives an indication that have faith in Allah, it will not harm you except with the permission of Allah I hope that answers the question.
several of the questions coming.
The question by Zubaydah Ahmed, from Hyderabad, India, how can one love Allah and Muhammad masala Salam is be upon him more than himself to become a true Muslim?
Shall we do deeds out of love or fear of Allah?
How can we love a land and messenger more than we love ourselves and under the Hadith of the Prophet of Salah, seldom that a Muslim is not a true Muslim until he loves Allah and His Messenger more than himself. So one of the criteria for you to be a complete, good Muslim, is that you love Allah and the soul more than you love.
And should you follow the deeds of the Prophet and Allah because you love them or because you fear them, it should be both. See the fear that if you are a full life, unlike the fear that you have other things, the love that we have found lies unlike the love that you have, for the therefore lies, ultimate love.
And the fear of all lies that you don't want to display the law. You don't want to display the beloved for masala salam, it's a different sort of fear. It's a different sort of love altogether. And
how can you
love a love within yourself is when you realize that when you do this thing is going to cause loss to you, yet you do it for the sake of sake of Allah, that the time you love Allah more than yourself. And you know very well, that now you have got a very good offer for a job in a bank and got a very lucrative salary, maybe the salary what you're earning, the bank is offering you triple the salary. But you know that a beloved Prophet said that Riba interest conventional interest bank if Haram, so you reject that why, for the sake of Allah, now you're loving Allah more than yourself. If you do the job, you will get triple the salary, you will have all the luxuries you'll have more
luxurious the world. Now this is an example of how you are loving Allah more than yourself. For example,
The Prophet said,
that don't leave the place in which when you're living in a place and if it's if a plague breaks out, don't leave it. You have to obey Allah and His messenger.
You cannot run away. You have to have faith Be patient, whatever before you even if after die if you die become a martyr. So you're following the commandment of Allah subhanaw taala it is not only proven medical science but you're doing for sake of Allah, you're loving Allah more than yourself. So always then you put your you put a line is messenger more than yourself. That means you're loving Allah more than yourself. And if you love Allah more than yourself, then you are a true believer. A true moment and inshallah good agenda for those.
There is a question from a guru for him.
Assalamu alaikum Sakina Bye.
jawwad from USC student.
I wanted maybe up to fame. Maybe the other name is coming onto the desert question from the YouTube. So his real name may be Java de Souza, salaam comes archetype am Joe was from USA a student. I wanted to know if online therapy allowed or not.
As long as online therapy, whether you're your therapist going on a mock taharah menu in Bangladesh or USA or Malaysia or India, can you read tarawih following the online therapy, and the unanimous decision unanimous for 12 from all the four how's that for a Salah for you to be part of the JAMA you should be close to the AMA the difference of opinion different for the Maliki school of thought say that even if there is a road or even if there is a river in between you yet yet you're part of the Gemma Aachen hanafy school of thought it is about two rows with more than literally is more than two rows. Then you can read
Yamato quando humbly, as long as you hear as long as necessary, but all of them agree that you should be closed you cannot be far away. So unanimously all the cars agree that you cannot do therapy online from another city and other timezone. Even same goes if you're very far away the distance is miles together, you cannot do but
the question asked the question someone asks that in this situation where there is locked down
and almost all the malls are closed. Now, can we read Dharavi online or by listening on the television whether it be from the Haram or whether any other place
as far as this is concerned, most of the fake counsels that I have tried to find answers over the last few days, I did not find any fake counsel saying that you know, you can get online.
But there is a fatawa by shake mama has to do. And according to me, I mean, he is one of the best living Islamic scholars today.
Sheikh Mohammed Hassan II from Mauritania and he got a great scholar he's about this Mashallah one of the
most knowledgeable, one of the most knowledgeable living Islamic scholars in the world. And, and I respect him and I've met him several times and I'm very close to him Alhamdulillah According to him, he is faced by the same general economic wall and but in this situation, because most of the mosques are close and most of the people don't have wha hoo fast in the house. He has given the fatwa only on this situation not otherwise because the mosques are closed. You can follow the Imam online whether on the television and your Salah will be accepted.
The other has the other scholars are failing and the other three councils are saying because Dharavi is not a further we don't want to open the door yet. We will not afford it as soon as the markets are very important. So now so let's not open the door. But according to shake Mamata Zonda do that you can do it again to get few more pressure and more concentration in your Salah. This is the answer that follows.
The next question
by Ibrahim from Ghana
Zakat, if a person acquires wealth by cheating and later realizes his mistake and decides to stop teaching and decides to stop cheating. What will he do with the vitamins but natural. If a person
wants to repent? If he's doing an evil there are criteria for for repentance. And there are basically four criteria for repentance or are the five number one is agreed is wrong? So if he's cheating, cheating is wrong. Number two, stop it immediately. Number three, don't do it again. Number four, ask for forgiveness and repent. And number five, undo it if you can. So for repentance to be accepted, besides agree it is wrong, which is dropping it immediately. Besides asking forgiveness, besides not doing it again, the last right is undo if you can so if you have acquired less wealth by cheating if you have cheated individual personal business see to it you give that
wealth back to him. If you have cheated generally and you don't know who the person is, then say to it you give that money to charity to the poor people if acquired wealth is by cheating or if you have robbed see to it the person you have robbed from give that object back or give that well back that we get to the best either and Allah will accept repentance inshallah.
There are many questions.
I'm just trying to select
the better questions.
And the next question is
is from Cairo, Egypt. I want to ask you
About stock market. What does the Sharia say about trading in stocks?
As we know, if we invest in long term, it's helpful. How about trading for a short time for one hour for a day for a week?
I make sure that it's not gambling because I do analysis before buying and sell it after getting capital again, thank you.
As far as Can you invest in a stock? And can you do it for a short term for a day or for a week or for a few hours? As far as if you want to invest in stock? First, you have to identify whether the stock that you're investing is Halla
there are various criterias of how to analyze whether the stock that you're purchasing the shares of your portfolio or companies halaal or not, number one, the major the activity of the company should not be haram it should not be dealing alcohol, it should not be dealing in Polk. So, the number one is it shouldn't it should not be a bank, which is based on drama, The conventional bank that tivity basic activity should not be harmed. Number two, there are various other criteria that the company should not take so much loan that the debt to the cash ratio is very high. So there are four houses and scholars who have devised that activity should not be Haram. And even the dead taking should be
a minute percentage, the various criteria. So you have got indexes. For example, you have the Dow Jones index of Islamic stocks. So these people are experts and delete the criteria why these stocks are halaal why the stocks are not allowed it Ferrum. So if it is undefined as a stock by an expert
in the field on Islamic organizing, which is specialized, you can invest in that stock, it's permissible. The second part of the question, can you invest for a short time?
for a few hours for a day? For a week? And I'm export? I'm not I'm not gambling, because am am I doing? Am legal regulation, see, when you buy shares is actually you are becoming a shareholder? And must be a simple question with all the calculation, will you physically be a partner, not shares physically be a partner of a business only for one hour? And that says, with all your calculations down to be a partner for one I know you cannot?
Physically if we say that I want to share and become a partner for a day, would you become a company? No, you cannot. So Stock Exchange gives us easy flexibility to buy shares. But that does not mean you should gamble. If it's done for a short period, intentionally that I will sell it when it goes off. And you keep it for a few other for or for a day or a few days. It tend to point to gambling. If it's done unintentionally, that you want to keep it for few years. And then you realize something market has crashed and then you want to sell it. that's acceptable. But from first you plan that I want to sell it as soon as it increases even if it's a few other not. This is
speculation. And this is not permitted in Islam. So you can involve in stock if it's a stock halaal share. But don't speculate. Don't do it for fear of keep it for a long term.
The next question
from from Mary, from USA, she's revert.
And she mentioned that
salam, I took Shahada in April 2019. That's about one year back and still confused about praying. I have two auto immune diseases, which make my leg dead and crippled. So I can't do prayer properly. I also have to take
medicines during daytime due to spasms in my face. So I try to only take one medicine that stopped the spasms with little water in midday and keep the rest for when the sun goes down. Other Muslims tell me I can't fast because I'm sick. Other say I broke the fast in between by taking the pill. By the way, I am refraining from all types of food except a tiny bit of water for one pill.
And when it comes to prayers, I have no idea to pray other than how Christians pray.
And I have been ridiculed by many Muslims telling me I will never be a Muslim because I can't do these things.
It makes me feel as if I'm letting down my Allah and it makes me depressed because I don't
knew what else to do. I feel Allah will never accept me because of this, and never taught how to do prayers. I was never taught how to do prayers. I tried to learn it from the YouTube which is sad, because the people who did Shahada with me just left me on my own. When I do ablution is mandatory that I washed my feet I have tape on my right foot, because it's dead with no feeling the tape keeps it in the right direction. When I walk, it will drag I have to wear compression socks or blood will rush to my feet, but everything else I can do with no problem.
I would like to say Salaam Alaikum wa sallam to Sister Mary. And I'd like to I'd like to welcome you to the fold of Islam. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all your sins. May Allah Spano tala get you closer to Islam? May Allah subhanaw taala grant you dinner for those.
There are basically three questions that you asked one is regarding offering Salah. The second is regarding Voodoo, and the third is regarding fasting. At first the first question is concerned that you don't know how to do proper Salah inshallah, I will ask one of my colleague to send you a book on Salah. It is the it is called the prophets prayer by sickness with an L Bonnie. It is described the prayer in detail and the point to be noted sister that because you're sick, it is not required that you pray exactly how you should pray if there are difficulties. You mentioned in your question, there are so many difficulties. And Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was
the 101 102 that
those who are sick or those who are traveling, you know, they can shorten the shorten the prayer and those who cannot those who are sick and those who cannot pray were standing, they can pray while sitting. If you cannot pray about sitting you can pray by line. If you cannot prove a line only with indication to a sister. Salah is never excused for any man for a woman unless she's having a menstrual cycle or postpartum the few things it is compulsory for a man if he's an adult Muslim, and if he's conscious Salah is not excused at all unless he's unconscious.
If you can pray standing you should pray while sitting. If you can't pray city you should pray well Lange cannot be like at least by indication. So sister whatever difficulty you have, you may be aware of certain things, but you cannot do them it is excused. Imagine you can sit while praying and there was a time when I myself had problems in the knee and I showed to the best of doctors and for two years I used to sit on the chair and pray. So if you have a medical problem if you cannot follow the executive chairman as described by the prophet, it is perfectly alright to get the same if you prefer setting if you even if we pray while lying even if you pray by indication if you're paralyzed
and only you're either moving you can pray with your eyes. There are some people only fingers are used they can pray with the finger.
So praying is not excused at all until certain accepting certain conditions of woman in menstruation postpartum etc. But
for the men as long as they're conscious and they're adult they have to pray
inshallah we'll send a book to you which will describe in detail and inshallah even if we cannot don't do those things because of a medical problem. Don't worry about it, don't do it. You can sit and pray you can learn from the second part of the question that you have got plaster on your feet and you have got some
which you cannot do cannot take it out in this case is where if you're wearing a plaster because your feet is fractured, or for medical problem and you cannot take them out, you can do massage over it. You can just rub your wet hands while we will do other parts you do do as you normally do on your leg which has a plaster that part which has a plaster, just rub with your hand the wet hand and that crucifies you don't have to remove the plaster your will do would be complete inshallah. And the last part of the question that you have to take some medicines, you have to take medical and if not twice, at least once a day. So can you fast and if you take little water and little medicine,
really fast be accepted in certain situations where you cannot fast because of illness. If the doctor says okay, you can take the medicine early in the morning before you start the fast and just immediately after you break the fast and you can survive Mashallah, you can keep the file, the doctor said No, you have to take it during daytime. Maybe at midday, there's no adoption, otherwise, it detrimental to your health, then you are excused from fasting. If you have a disease which is temporary, then you excuse for that time and the moment you get well you can compensate for the fast which you missed. But if you have a disease which is permanent and it will never be solved, then
what you have to do. If so, and you cannot fast later on then what
Do you feed a person
a poor person
for every first few minutes so if you miss the full month, the re nine days 30 days that many poor people you feed so that you get the answer and believe me sister you will get the full answer of fasting. You don't have to go into trouble. Allah subhanho does not want to put difficulties into you. So if you cannot fast because of medical problem, Allah has given you a confession, just feed a poor man for every first few missed and inshallah we'll get the idea of fasting inshallah your WhatsApp number has come on to the mobile, I will ask my wife inshallah. inshallah call you later on. And so that she can help you and help you in other aspects of Islam. And whenever you're free,
you're most welcome to call my wife, she'll be texting you soon soon. She'll speak to inshallah, if not today, tomorrow, inshallah and see to it that on one to one basis, if you have any queries on Islam, she will answer them and Mashallah My wife is also Mashallah very good to give a lecture because she doesn't give generally public therefore less people are herder but mashallah Inshallah she will help you to fulfill and follow as much of Islam as possible sister does Allah shukran and I pray to Allah subhanaw taala let me put the agenda for those that even in this condition, you accepted Islam and we included inshallah, this will inshallah benefit you in this one as well as
We have few more minutes and as time permits, inshallah, we will try and take a couple of more questions.
There is a question asked
Assalamualaikum My name is Rohit, I am from Chittagong,
Bangladesh, will pitch TV network launch and online Tao Of course, where Muslims will be trained to give Dawa to non Muslims. A similar question is pass it asked me one or two other
people. A second similar question to the earlier one Assalamualaikum. Doctor, your website has very interesting, your website are very interesting is very interesting. In that website you said about international our training program. Is it after I'm done? is it available online?
The third question is similar. My name is Isa Tavi. I'm from Mumbai, India. So Mashallah, similar question is being asked from someone from Mumbai, India, from Chittagong, Bangladesh in other parts of the world. I wanted to know about the Dow training program, how can I attend it all they asked me about our training program. As far as I'm concerned, personally, they have taken very few our training programs. I've taken a couple of our training programs for the local people that the Indians and African to international training programs in my full life the complete course, one was in 1999, which was
approximately 40 days, the working days, were about 2324. And the second one we had after several years, that is in 2016 again in Bombay. In both these our program, we select 20 people 20 people from different parts of the world, we received hundreds and more than 1000 applications we selected and we had a training program in 2016, January and February for about 50 days, the working day robot 33.
And we have recorded this without any program. Personally for me to conduct our training program is too time consuming that they did in the last our training program, we recorded it and inshallah if time permits, we'll edit it and have it on the satellite channel and other media also.
As the questionnaires that we have just launched our website
addresses Zakir naik.com a repeat of earlier website was it was closed down because they're associated with an organization and delegation later the government at that time the Islamic givers Foundation was the fourth largest visited Islamic website in the world. We just launched on the first day of Ramadan, a new website by the name Zakir naik.com
and one section in this website is international training program and when you click it phase coming soon inshallah because our training program itself is another website individually different by itself.
We have get certain portions to be completed the main website that there is in some part says will be coming soon after we complete the other parts of the website. We will inshallah build our international our training program. This international our training program on the website racket
dot com is an online program has most of the notes it will not be as effective as attending it directly. If you attend live, it's a different ballgame altogether a different impact altogether. If you hear it, or watch it on a video it may have about maybe 20% impact. If you do it online, it may have 10% impact, but something is better than nothing. All the notes inshallah will be uploaded on this website about how to be done to ATF, to the Christians to the Hindus, to the Parsis, the impact of Dawa various aspects of public speaking and various it's there,
we expect that this would take another one or two months inshallah, in the month of Ramadan, we will complete the other portions which are pending because this website is a voluminous, it is huge.
It has a lot of information
and almost all my lectures will be uploaded on inshallah, now a few other the lecture scripts that are books of mine, my interactions, my meetings and all the other facilities that they are going to be voluminous and same time it will also have another exclusive section called as international training program.
Time is short, and
we are running out of time. inshallah, we'll just take one more question before we end the session.
It's a question
from again a revert.
The name is Rahul go Daria from India Bombay. I am 23 years old. My question is, why does the Quran say there is benefit in alcohol in Surah Baqarah ir 219. What kind of benefit has
also I've been practicing Islam since last one year? I want to learn more about Islam. inshallah, if you want to know more about Islam, you can watch our peace TV. It's been four different languages, English, Urdu, bangla Chinese, you can visit our website you'll have a lot of information inshallah it will help you come closer to Islam. regarding a basic question. Why does the Quran say in Surah Baqarah chapter two verse 219, that in the alcohol there are some benefits. What benefit can they be not called is the question. Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was 119 that in alcohol, there is benefit and loss, but the loss is more than the benefit.
So this was is giving you the indication that in their call, there is benefit and loss but the loss is more than benefit. That's why Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter five verse 290. Yeah, you will live in harmony or you believe
in number of humble my sorrow, most certainly toxicants and gambling will unravel of Lamu dedication of stones divination of arrows, ritual minimally shaytan. Neither Satan handiwork first enable him to flee who abstained from the handiwork that may prosper. Your
alleged telling that alcohol is a Satan's handiwork acting from its Hara. But in the earlier was also Rebekah chapter two was 219. It says in our call, there are some benefits and also loss but the loss of that benefit. I think a medical doctor, I know that there are some benefits. For example,
if you have alcohol in moderate levels,
it will help you in heart diseases. But the doctor says there is a risk
that in the research we say that if you have alcohol in moderate levels, it will prevent you from ischemic heart diseases
that would be beneficial.
And in the results. Another research says that moderate levels of alcohol if you're suffering from diabetes would be a benefit for you. But all these benefits that I mentioned it has a caveat.
It is very risky. Because all the doctors and even I and even the medical fraternity knows that alcohol has got a variety of disease you can give a lecture for the full day only talking about the disease. If you go to my Amazon alcohol only listing the disease takes time. So it also know can can damage the brain can damage the liver can damage the lung can have almost all the organs of the body.
And every year, two and a half million people die only because of alcohol according to who. So that is the reason but Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling openly that in the alcohol there is benefit and loss, but the loss mood benefits so don't have alcohol share. You know some people say if
If you have alcohol, it keeps you warm. So if I'm feeling cold, why don't I have beer, and the right alcohol keeps you warm. But the chances of the other negative factors you being having having other diseases is very detrimental. If you start having to keep you cold, very soon, you will become alcoholic, you will be an addict. If it honey keeps you so outriggers have honey, it keeps me warmer than beer, and has benefits from human beings rather than any loss. So you should take you should eat less substitutes. Don't go for these small benefits as a loss, the loss of more than benefit they factored in from it's a hidden Handbook, and we have crafted from it.
