this fourth sessions

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

short talk is

00:01:25--> 00:01:45

objectives of fasting and inshallah I will try and limit this talk to less than 10 minutes so that we have more time for the question answer session. I will be enumerating there are many objectives of fasting, I'll be I'll be numerating the 16 most important objectives of fasting.

00:01:47--> 00:02:33

Number one is to seek the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala, a beloved partner solo Salaam said the only act which is done solely for last minute Allah no one else is fasting. So we fast for seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala number two, for acquiring taqwa. according to verse of the Quran of Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 83. In the setting of metop we save that fasting has been prescribed to you as it was prescribed to people who came before you so that you may learn self-restraint, la quinta cocoon so that you may learn self restraint. You may learn God consciousness, piety, righteousness, you come closer to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

The third objective is

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

to enter Jannah

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

and upload Prophet said there are eight gates through which you can agenda and if you fast,

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

there are chances you'll enter through the gate of rayyan.

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

The fourth objective is

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

to expiate our sins.

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

And a beloved Prophet Musa Lawson said as mentioned, it's a Buhari,

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

one number 300 number 1901. That if a person fasts with sincere faith,

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

and expecting a reward from Allah subhanaw taala, in the month of Ramadan, all his past sins will be forgiven.

00:03:18--> 00:03:29

The fifth is seeking the reward from Allah subhanaw taala. I've mentioned in previous videos, and the sixth is seeking forgiveness.

00:03:32--> 00:03:41

from Dan is also called the month of forgiveness. And Allah forgives the people who pass the fast thing is a way of having your sins forgiven.

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

Number seven, is

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

seeking shafa

00:03:49--> 00:03:53

that intercession, fasting will intercede

00:03:54--> 00:04:03

on the day of judgment on your behalf. And the fast will say that this person, he sacrifice the food and drink for me so there'll be intercession by fasting.

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

It is

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

knowing

00:04:09--> 00:04:18

the boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala by fasting comes through the various niyama Allah Subhana Allah has given us and it makes you appreciate

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

Allah smarter, much better and gets you closer to Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Ninth is

00:04:29--> 00:04:33

to increase the willpower

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

by fasting, your willpower and determination in cases

00:04:40--> 00:04:46

to increase the good deeds when you fast to see to do more good deeds. The fasting increases your good deeds

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

level increases the honesty

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

number 12.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

It increases the control of your desires and the cycle

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

Tell us today that if you can control your hunger, you can control almost all your desires.

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

13th

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

objective of fasting

00:05:11--> 00:05:15

is to restrict the pathway of the Satan.

00:05:16--> 00:05:21

When you fast, the Satan has less control over you restrict the pathway of the Satan

00:05:23--> 00:05:23

14

00:05:25--> 00:05:30

fasting acts as a shield against the evil

00:05:31--> 00:06:22

and the prophets that fasting is the shield. So when you fast it shields you against the evil. The 15th is it abstains, it helps you to abstain from false action. When you first you are careful that you're away from the false action and the Haram. So it it helps you to abstain from the first section. And the last main objective of fasting is it abstains from false speech. It abstain from lying, and from reading from saying things with a Hara. This was in brief regarding the main objectives of fasting for more details, you can refer to my episode on object to the first thing in my series of from non addict Dr. zakat. hamdulillah. I was able to compete in less than 10 minutes,

00:06:22--> 00:06:27

the main object is before we start open question our session

00:06:28--> 00:06:38

I would like to inform the viewers that a hamdulillah Mashallah, I was pleased and overwhelmed by the response that I'm receiving

00:06:39--> 00:07:21

on the social media. I've been more on the satellite, and I'm aware that the satellite has a large reach Mashallah millions of people watch. But it is the first time that I am going on my own social media life. And I haven't been in LA Alhamdulillah. In the last three sessions alone. During the live three sessions, more than 2 million people watched it live on the Facebook. And within a few days, in one week, the number doubled. And all the three of us put together now it's more than 4 million only on the Facebook. And there are hundreds of 1000s on the YouTube and 1000s on the Instagram and the Twitter Alhamdulillah. And

00:07:23--> 00:07:45

I would like to thank all the people who have given wonderful messages on the social media. I'd like to say welcome salam to all of you are at amin, and May Allah reward you for all all your good deeds and the number of praises I got, I don't think I deserve all that. And I pray to Allah subhanaw taala did May he not hold me responsible

00:07:46--> 00:07:58

for what praises they've done about me and me forgive them for the negative point that they don't know about me and my last minute Allah make me better than what they think about me.

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

As far as the questions are concerned, only on the WhatsApp Alhamdulillah by the end of the third law efficient Alhamdulillah we received more than 12,000 questions in all the three sections put together and that is in between

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

on the Facebook alone, Mashallah. We received about more than 65,000 questions

00:08:29--> 00:08:41

and several 1000 even on the YouTube etc. all put together Mashallah. But more than 80,000 questions, and we have only been able to answer less than 60 in the last few sessions.

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

But

00:08:44--> 00:08:53

we'll try and answer as much as you can. This session may be more than the previous sessions. And I would like to remind you, that those of you whose questions are not answered,

00:08:54--> 00:09:34

And to the morning, I made a call to a brother by the name of halaal from Canada, and he was shocked to receive my call on WhatsApp. It was a video call. So I could see him and he could see me and and I'd like to thank him for all the duels that he that he made for me, and I'll accept it. So if your question is not answered, be prepared that you may receive a call from me every after every session, the same day or the next day before the next session comes inshallah I'll at least make one call to one of the persons question have not been answered.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

Before we started the question answer session. I'd like to remind you, you can ask questions about any of the social media, but preferably on the WhatsApp. Please text your question In brief, mentioning your name, the city and country of residence to the WhatsApp number plus six zero double 126983538

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

Nine, five, I repeat, plus six zero, double 126953895. And now we take the first question.

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

The first question

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

is,

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

the person says one atom.

00:10:23--> 00:10:23

one atom

00:10:24--> 00:10:29

is the Tamil word, which means hello, and hello to YouTube.

00:10:32--> 00:10:40

I believe the person is the Tamil is asking the question. And he writes, wasn't here. I'm a Hindu, residing in Bahrain.

00:10:41--> 00:10:49

I am reading and getting knowledge about Islam for some time, but slowly, day by day,

00:10:50--> 00:11:04

can you please tell top five aspects of Islam which can inspire non Muslims, apart from the five pillars, as I'm aware of them? Basically, brother wants to know the top five

00:11:05--> 00:11:35

points that inspire non Muslim to become Muslim. Get them closer to Islam, besides the five pillars, and let me tell you that the major points that inspire a non Muslim towards Islam are the five pillars. I briefly mentioned some of the points of the five pillars and then come on to the other five important points besides the five pillar. According to me, the number one point that inspires a non Muslims towards Islam is tawheed. It is oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:37--> 00:11:44

And the concept of God in our last month, but it is unique, unlike other religions, the concept that there is only one God

00:11:45--> 00:12:22

and that we worship no one else besides Him alone. And he's all powerful. He doesn't have any associates. He doesn't have any partners, this concept of partied not merely monotheism. tawheed, that you worship Him alone, and no one is it really impressive, the non Muslim and the definition of Allah subhanaw taala. I've given it brief in Surah class, Chapter 112 was number one before we save a whole lot. See, he's allowed in only allow summit, Allah, the absolute eternal, laminar turbulent, he gets not noisy forgotten, while I'm here.

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

And there is nothing like him. This

00:12:27--> 00:12:55

suit, a class, in short, is the touchstone of theology, giving the definition of Allah subhanaw taala In brief, and it makes it completely different than the other concepts of God. Whereas if you see in other religions, God can be defeated. God has got son God has got wife, the wife gets abducted, the God can be killed. So all these are not the true concept of Allah subhanaw taala number one is for him. Number two,

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

and the second pillar of Islam, that Salah

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

that when a person offers Salah, he gets closer to Allah subhanaw taala is better than any meditation, it gets you peace of mind, it gets to serenity. And it demonstrates the best example of universal prayer thought. And when the Muslim men when we stand for salein congregation, we stand shoulder to shoulder and feet two feet, irrespective of whether the person next to you is a king, or a popper, whether it's black or white, we stand shoulder to shoulder in demonstrates the best example of universal brotherhood five times everyday.

00:13:35--> 00:13:44

I'm just mentioning some of the salient features of all the five pillars which are tracks are non Muslim. Number three, it is a card that every rich person who has a savings

00:13:45--> 00:13:49

of more than the nisab level 85 grams of gold should give 2.5%

00:13:50--> 00:14:11

as the card as obligate to charity, to the eight categories, the poor, the masakan, etc. and here the people feel the closeness and and Allah says in Surah hucha chapter 59 Muslim seven, Zakat prevents the wealth from circulating only amongst the rich, it gets a closeness between the rich and the poor. So this aspect attracts a non Muslim,

00:14:13--> 00:14:24

the fourth pillar as fasting in the Psalm and we mentioned all the object of the fasting, all these objective gets a person closer to Islam. The fifth pillar

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

is

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

Hajj or pilgrimage, anyone who has the means and the health

00:14:33--> 00:14:48

and the wealth to perform how to do it once in his lifetime. And Hutch is the best exempt example of annual universal method where more than 4 million people from all over the world from different parts of the world from

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

from Saudi Arabia from India from Pakistan, from Bangladesh, from UK from USA, from Singapore from Malaysia from Indonesia, they gather and the men that they

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

have been two pieces of white cloth and soon it's and they only come and sell a big allama Bay. Here we come at the service of the Lord. So this shows the newest bed out. It shows the equality of all the human beings all desktop into pieces of white unsold cloth. This demonstration of brotherhood impresses a non Muslim. This was just in brief about some of the salient features we can give a talk for several hours. In reply to this question, the important points at the tracks are non Muslim toward Islam. Now coming to the main question, what are the five top important points besides the five pillars which attracts a non Muslim toward Islam? Number one besides the Bible, according to

00:15:41--> 00:16:23

me, it is the Quran. The Glorious Quran is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanaw taala they will do the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The Quran is the ultimate miracle. It's a miracle of miracle. And anyone who reads the Quran, even the translation if it is a good translation. It brings tears to his eyes, he realizes the beauty of life he realizes the purpose of creation, he understands Allah subhanaw taala he understands the deen only giving the translation a good translation of the Glorious Quran to a non Muslim, it will do wonders. It is one of the major factors besides the five pillar which attracts a non Muslim towards Islam. It's unlike

00:16:23--> 00:16:30

any other book in the world unlike any other scriptures. Number two besides the five pillar, it is

00:16:31--> 00:16:36

profit Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and appointed Michael chaats homeless Allah Salam

00:16:37--> 00:17:09

in his book of 100 most influential people in the world from Adam Smith upon him till today, number one he places being a non Muslim, his prophet muscle Salah, if you read the seed of the Prophet, as the Quran, it says insert a column chap number 68 was number four, that thou art standard on the highest standard of character. That means the character of the Prophet is so superior, it is the best standard. And Allow me to demonstrate it. Chapter number 33

00:17:10--> 00:17:50

was number 21. That very early in the Messenger of Allah in musallam, you will find the most beautiful pattern of conduct, his conduct his lifestyle, his behavior was an example so much so that even his enemies could not deny calling him the alameen the trustworthy, the honest person that respected him. So if you read the seed of the Prophet, there are high chances that if a non Muslim reads with an unbiased mind, though there are 1000s of books written against the Prophet. But if you read the cedar, you will find that he was the best example. Best exemplary human being that Allah has sent on the face of the earth.

00:17:52--> 00:17:53

Number three,

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

top reason besides the five pillar that are non Muslim, accept Islam and get attracted is

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

the concept of life after death.

00:18:06--> 00:18:30

That is believing that is life after death. Because when you look around us, there is so much of wrong happening. There's so much of criminals, so much of injustice being done. And you wonder how is Allah subhanaw taala allowing this injustice even not capable of stopping it? Allah gives the reply in chapter three, verse number 85, that every fool shall have a taste of death. And the final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

And this life is the meal abusement if you enter Jannah, you have achieved the objective of this life. Because this life is just mere tools

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

of deception.

00:18:45--> 00:19:09

Yeah, we know that the final recompense is any of that. But imagine if you have to think of Hitler, the person who we know who has killed the maximum number of human beings in the world. History does have 6 million, even if you catch it today, what management can you give him? Maybe that that will compensate for one What about the remaining 5,999,919 and human being just killed?

00:19:11--> 00:19:30

The only replied to this is Allah will give him the final punishment of the Day of Judgment. Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter four, verse number six, that as to those who reject our signs, we will cast them into the hellfire. And as often as the skins are roasted, we shall give them fresh skin, so that they shall feel the pain that means

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

in the next life,

00:19:34--> 00:19:41

and today we have come to know that the feeling of pain is responsible. It's based on the pain receptors which are present in the skin.

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

So if your skin is burned, and the pain is separate, that destroyed you cannot feel the pain. And that's what happened in this life. A person has 100% burn injury, and it's been disrupters have been destroyed. I cannot feel pain. But on the day of the minilessons as often as your skin they're roasted, we shall give you fresh skin.

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

So that it should feel the pain. That means if Allah wants to incinerate burn Hitler 6 million times 10 million times 12 million times we can do it, we can give him such a punishment in this life. So there has to be a life after death for justice in this world. And the fifth

00:20:18--> 00:20:19

or the fourth point

00:20:20--> 00:20:28

that attracts the person beside to the five pillars of Islam is that this life that we are leading is a test for the hereafter.

00:20:31--> 00:20:36

Allah says in the Quran in surah mulk chapter number 16 was number two, allegedly helical more

00:20:37--> 00:21:19

or less allocated debt and life to test which of us best Indeed, this life is a test for us for the hereafter. Many of the questions that we asked that how are millions of people dying of hunger? There's so much of poverty, can't Allah subhanaw taala give them food and Almighty God? There are so many people dying in diseases, the dying in earthquakes, what is the reason? The reason is this life is a test for the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala test different people with different things. Some people test with wealth, some people report it some people with health, some people with diseases and Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was number 155. That, do you? Do you

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

think Allah will not test you? And before you go to Gen X to test Allah says, we will test you with hunger or with fear of life

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

or with the property that we have acquired, and lamb test two different ways. And the fifth reason

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

that packs a person besides the five pillar is the repentance.

00:21:41--> 00:22:26

That the concept of repentance of taba in Islam, that irrespective however many sins you do, you may do a sin as big as the mountain stuck in the sky. You miss sin the whole the whole night. But if you truly repent, and you ask forgiveness in Islam, Allah will forgive anything, even even the worst of the sin. So this gives a hope to a human being that now he's bad. And now he reads a book he knows about religion. So can he turn into a new leaf very well he can. He may be the worst human being in the world. If he sincerely repents, and he asked for forgiveness. He does Toba inshallah, Allah will forgive him and the beauty of Islam is if a person who was a non Muslim, the big thing he does, and

00:22:26--> 00:22:37

after it happens, the bigger the thing he leaves, the bigger everybody can imagine if a person is the biggest sin and he thinks Okay, now if I accept Islam, all my sins will get converted to the good deeds. Mashallah.

00:22:39--> 00:22:58

So these are the five points that I can think of the top priority besides the five pillars of Islam. So hope this answer is very, very fun. So you can beat us on this. But because it's a question answer session, I don't want to spend more time because there was a non Muslim asking a question. I gave a reply in more detail.

00:23:00--> 00:23:05

There are many messages and receiving on on the Facebook

00:23:15--> 00:23:22

that are from Sujin Sarkar. Assalamualaikum from Abu hanifa Allah Allah Allah Muhammad, I love them do.

00:23:24--> 00:23:49

May Allah bless you ribbon Begum Marouf Ahmed. God bless you, sir. So you see I'm from Bangladesh, sad, the lot, love and respect to a great scholar of a time Hassan Mahmud Salam aleikum Imran Khan, from Bangladesh. We have Rumi Asha the Salam O Allah come from Kolkata walakum wa salam ala berkata. I'm not reading the questions.

00:23:51--> 00:24:18

And Allah Muhammad Kadir, Salam alikoum care, roomier shot to all of them. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa barakato. And thank you for your service, may Allah reward you And may Allah inshallah, let us enter agenda together and we meet the inshallah, the second question that has come on WhatsApp, which has been selected by my team from 1000s of questions that have come and are yet coming

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

as an icon from Pakistan

00:24:24--> 00:24:31

If a woman has kept fast and she starts to menstruate just a few moments before my grip

00:24:33--> 00:24:34

will have fast be nullified

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

and one of the first breaker

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

for human administration if a lady misread the fast breaks issues minister that she cannot keep a fast while she fasting even if you managed to it's a few minutes or even a minute before the time then a fast is nullified. But But natural she can very well keep the fast late after I'm done when she's healthier.

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

She gets the equals or what she gets for Muslim fasting in the month of Ramadan.

00:25:10--> 00:25:25

The third question Assalamualaikum Sultan, sellout Dean place Chennai, India. My question is it permissible for an automatic patient to use inhaler while fasting

00:25:28--> 00:25:43

if a person is suffering from a stoma, and if he uses the puffer or the inhaler, they then Miss agreement between all the forecasts and all those colors that it does not break your fast because when you use the inhaler or a puffer there is a compressed

00:25:45--> 00:26:26

air which would you put into your mouth it goes to your throat, and from the throat, it enters into your lungs, it does not enter into your stomach. So because of that your fast is not broken. Even if you use a mask having oxygen in the situation of mine You breathe, that too does not break the fast Baba doesn't enter your stomach, it mainly goes to your lungs. But there are certain treatments in our stomach. For example, vaporizers vaporizers, you know where there may be some medicine put and there's pressure of air and if that medicine goals, while going into your lung, there are chances that some portion may go into a stomach or suppose the capsule is put into an equipment with

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

compressed air and this capsule is mainly containing powder. So there are high chances that the powder can mix into your saliva and from that it can go into your stomach. So because there are chances in such type of tablets, or or or capsules, or vaporizers this sort of treatment for some it is preferably do it before the time of fast starts or after it ends. If it's a must, that you have to take it in between then most welcome you can break your fast and keep it afterwards. After all, if you have to take it throughout your life, then what you can do is you can feed one poor person for every first year Miss Hope that answers the question

00:27:16--> 00:27:26

there's a question by five than quit. My question is will we get the same job of reading Quran whether we read in English or Arabic, since I cannot read Arabic fluently

00:27:27--> 00:28:10

as far I mean a beloved prophet masala Sallam said that every letter you recite of the Quran, you get swab. And Allah is not one letter, it is a leaf is a letter, lamb is a letter high the letter you get 10 1010 has not done. So for every lead to recite of the Quran, you get 10 blessings. As far as this blessing is concerned, surely, it's only when you decide that the Quran in Arabic, not when you read the translation. But naturally, when you read the translation, you will get swab but not the same at all. As you get an Arabic the swab that you get for reading the translation Arabic is multiple times more than reading the transmission. But the point to be noted is that one is sabab

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

for reading the Quran, the other is about for implementing the Quran.

00:28:15--> 00:28:53

If you read Arabic, and you don't understand how to make, how can you implement on the message of the Quran, whether you read in English or or do or Bangla the language you understand the best, you may get a minute, a small percentage of saw up for reading it, but if you implement on the message, you will get multiple time masaba. So reading swab is one thing in which you get more in Arabic. But implementing is one thing if you read the Quran in translation, and you implement the message, implement on the message that you abstain from the thing which are haram and do the things which are commanded by Allah subhanaw taala surely the Sahaba is multiple times more even than reading in

00:28:53--> 00:29:12

Arabic. So the best I would say that if you don't understand Arabic language, the best if you read the Quran in Arabic, and also read the translation, it is the best killing two birds with one stone so that you get the syrup for reading also. And you also get the server for implementing the message of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:29:23--> 00:29:33

The end of the question that is asked on the face book that just came a couple of minutes before it is from always Mr. Pereira from Kashmir India,

00:29:35--> 00:29:59

which takes priority calling non Muslims to Islam or calling non committed Muslims to become religious committed Muslims there is asking that which is more priority Dawa, that is inviting non Muslims to Islam Islam that is correcting the Muslim Islamic mistake. Actually both are important. But if you ask that we have less time and you can do only one of the two then my reply is

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

That if a person have heart attack comes to a doctor, or a person who comes to a doctor with a small bruise or a cut in his hand, the doctor should attend to him, the person who has a heart attack, or a person who has a bruise, or a small minor cut in the hand, but naturally should attend. First of all, there are high chances you will die for the person who has a small cut, he may bleed it may cause the pain but the chance of him dying is very, very, very negligible if it's a normal cut. So similarly, the best is doing both now and is slow. But if your time is restricted, and if two in front of you, but not just speaking to a non Muslim, and trying to get them closer to Islam room,

00:30:42--> 00:30:59

removing the sheikh in his life, and getting him closer to Allah, so that he enters Jana, it will take more variety than to Islam to Muslim getting closer to Islam, but the best is doing both. But between the two, but nacelles dava, according to me, carries more priority.

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

The next question

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

come on the fifth book again, by zaidan. Eric,

00:31:22--> 00:31:32

is a non Muslim. And he says that if a person is cremated, then how will he be questioned about the question asked in the grave as he does not have a grave?

00:31:34--> 00:31:42

That's a very good question. And many people are confused. That because the deeds of the partners are seldom, that after you die, you will be

00:31:44--> 00:32:14

requested in your grave. And there's also mentioned of the other of the punishment in the grave. And it also says that the people are better than the question. You have to understand that what this hadith mean, when Prophet said that after you're married, it means that because today we know that most of the human within the world they are buried the Christians, the Muslims, majority of the human in the world today, if you do a third of it, you have buried, less people are cremated, some are given to the vultures.

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

They are buried.

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

So based on that, when the statement is made, it is mainly meaning after you die will be questioned.

00:32:28--> 00:32:51

If you're married, it's in the grave. If not wherever you are, that doesn't mean that if you're not married, you will not be questioned. There are chances that you can maybe while animals may kill you, and you don't get married, there are chances you will doubt that Question no. Because for questioning to thing that acquire the soul, the body, the body, if you realize even when you're buried, it gets disintegrated.

00:32:53--> 00:33:23

It gets merged into the earth. So the main concept is that if Allah can resurrect you on the Day of Judgment, why can't he yet whether you have a body or not, whether they are buried or whether they have drowned, whether they are cremated, like and yet if he wants to give you give you pain want to give you punishment, as a as Allah says that, that in the Quran in surah, a insan chapter number 75 was number three, that

00:33:24--> 00:33:51

if those people who think that Allah cannot respect them on the Day of Judgment, so Allah tells them we can not only can Alas, how can Allah reassemble our board on the day of judgment? So Allah says, tell them that Allah can not only reassembles the bones, he can reconstruct in perfect order, the very tip of your finger talking about fingerprints, Allah can even get your fingerprints which is not even identical in a million people.

00:33:52--> 00:34:17

So when you can resurrect on the Dr. Judgment, why can you do it the game? So it is basically telling you that after you die, whether you are in the agreement that you are gone when they're cremated, there will be a minor question and answer session. They will be some some punishment. There may be some rewards. But the final recompense of Allah says in Psalm one chapter zero was 185 is the final recompense as on the Day of Judgment. Hope that answers the question.

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

There are

00:34:26--> 00:34:29

many people asking questions. Is it a fun?

00:34:34--> 00:34:40

Mind you? That is Arshad Khan, and I say welcome Sonam. To them, there is a rare

00:34:41--> 00:34:54

moment, Sally Shakur had been Bashir, Caligula Islam Yato shahina feeb Muhammad pulser Dr. Zakir I love you. I love you too for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

Muhammad Rahim Allah son

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

humming Reha mama Nasim Khan Masha Allah Shahi faithful. We feel every moment in our daily activities, Mama through cell. I love you I love you to love to Dr. Zakir Naik, Muhammad Ali. I love all of you and thank you for you to us.

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

We'll take the next question.

00:35:25--> 00:35:28

This question given what's up, my name

00:35:29--> 00:35:46

is Phil tan, and I'm from the way my mother has a substantial saving through alone, allowances from her children and occasional gifts. Is it obligatory for her to give Zakat considering it's not her income and only a saving.

00:35:48--> 00:36:32

As far as NACA is concerned, Zakat, every adult Muslim who has a CV of more than than any adult they will if it's a non adult, the adult who's a guardian should give Zakat on behalf any Muslim who has a savings of more than the nisab level 85 grams of gold for one lunar year if he or she keeps it, they have to give Zakat irrespective of whether from the income whether from the gift whether from the allowance, as long as they keep a saving of more than 85 grams of gold for more than one lunar year then that individual male or female, including your mother, she has to give 2.5% of that saving every lunar year in Zakat, its complicity

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

The next question

00:36:44--> 00:36:58

from our sin, Tamil Nadu India Assalamualaikum Sir, this question is from a non Muslim who asked me is Dr. Zakir Naik preaching Islam for money through online social media etc.

00:36:59--> 00:37:12

He quoted me a saying from Dr. Sakina that Islam is free. You don't need money to run Islam. And it's correct. Then why promote his video cassettes, DVDs for money etc.

00:37:13--> 00:37:48

He further said that doctor has left his medical profession with gave him earnings. And now he's earning more by preaching for Islam. I was quite an I had no answer for this request. Please forward my message Dr. Zakir and I'm eager. I'm eagerly waiting for his reply. The basic question is posed by non Muslim that Dr. Larkin next that Islam is free and we see that he's promoting his videos on the social media on YouTube. And he's selling a video is getting money. So if swamishree that How come he is getting money and earning more money, he's earning more

00:37:50--> 00:38:24

by preaching Islam than what you're earning before and I agree with the person 100% I am earning most of up more blessings for the akhira by preaching Islam than what I was doing earlier as a medical doctor I agree with him. But I find that acquiring money is concerned never in my life and hamdulillah I have charged for any of my books or my videos or any of my work or any of my services of Islam or in Malaysia that I give a free the books that our trust prints is given distributed free. There are other people who are

00:38:25--> 00:39:02

printing my books and they are selling and selling Islamic books is not Hara I give them permission. You can copy my book you can print my book you can sell them you can give them free you can make money I've got no objection. Anyone prints my book and sells it It's better than printing books which are haram printing Islamic book inshallah you get out. But if I am concerned, I never sell any of my books. If you distribute my books, it is absolutely given free. I don't charge for copyrights also not to a thing. People are willing to offer large amounts for copyrights of my work. I said no, I cannot give you exclusive copyright for my books you want you can print it let others also print

00:39:02--> 00:39:08

same for me. Please. All my social media accounts are absolutely free. Even the PhD was free.

00:39:09--> 00:39:19

In the social media account, what happens that other people copy my videos and they give ads? Which

00:39:20--> 00:39:23

I don't I don't object.

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

Many people to get more views. They put photographs of actresses. You know and I've never spoken about that is that and then once I see that luck your next picks on Padma What is it? What is the padmavathi mean at Google I come to know it is the latest movie that had come.

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

So they are doing this to attract which I don't agree it is correct. So if they're doing something wrong, they will get the money but as far as the sahab is concerned the millions that are watching will come to me. So none of my activity this nomic activity ever have I charged for the only activity that my trust also has ever charged is for the school.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

That also is not a profit we have spent crores of rupees millions of dollars in the school. It's not profit making at all. And neither do I take any,

00:40:10--> 00:40:48

any remuneration from my trust, I don't take any salary. Even when I go for giving lectures, the clauses then the lecture that I will pay my own etiquette, I will take care of my own hotel accommodation. Only thing after arranged for the visa, that's my condition. But if the host forces me, and doesn't allow me to pay for the hotel, I cannot force but the ticket always I mean, unless it is from a government. If I'm official guests of the head of state, I cannot argue too much. If I'm being called backing, and by the president or prime minister of a country, that at the time, I don't insist that I pay for my own ticket. Otherwise, always even the awards that I've got

00:40:49--> 00:41:38

for the for the King Faisal award, I got $200,000 that the 750,000 and even for the Holy Quran award from Dubai, a million drum that more than 270,000 US dollars, all of that. I don't need it for vocs. So but let me tell you, if someone takes led for dava it is not haram as long as he does not charge more than his market value. But as far as I'm concerned, I don't think because I want I want to busaba because I left my profession. And I do not charge for any of my activities. In fact, I spend from my own side. Allah Subhana Allah has blessed me, I spend few hours I used to spend a few hours in business maybe a couple of days in a month during holidays and hamdulillah is to make millions of

00:41:38--> 00:42:06

dollars in a year and majority of my earnings is to win charity. So Allah subhanaw taala has given me more indictable also Alhamdulillah if I'd done medical profession, I wouldn't have earned millions of dollars and you're not at all I don't think so. But because I'm doing in the way of Allah subhanaw taala the small businesses that do it gives me Alhamdulillah a lot of profit that is the reason I could send you know crores of rupees millions of dollars back to India it may have been money

00:42:07--> 00:42:12

and majority of it I give to charity Alhamdulillah

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

and

00:42:16--> 00:42:23

all the social media platforms even pitch TV, the pitch TV was started the company was started from our money but it was what

00:42:24--> 00:42:41

if I want to commercialize speech tv imagine 200 million people watching and if I say let the normal charges for a monthly subscription for a channel is $5 even if I charge a $2 and out of 200 million, even if 2% suppose

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

pay, that is 4 million, multiply by $2 I get $8 million a month, multiply by 12 close to $100 million.

00:42:53--> 00:43:15

And the cost is just a small portion of that. But what am I going to do with this money? This money gathered by me Jenna because the moment I start judging the viewership will come down to 1%. And now 25% of the viewership or non Muslims on the pitch TV network, if it comes down to one person and no Muslim, non Muslim is watching what will I do with the money

00:43:17--> 00:43:34

for the money, how beloved profitable so saddam said that you offered to retire sooner before the fudger salah and that is more valuable than the Earth and the wealth in it. So if you truly love Allah subhanaw taala understand Islam the money

00:43:36--> 00:44:06

the value of the server is multiple more than the money but if you go for Allah subhanaw taala for the Hara, Allah says in the Quran, if you strive for here, Allah will give our current money also. And Allah has given me millions of times much more than what I deserve hundreds of million times. I don't deserve the fame. I don't deserve the wealth, the earning and approval Illa sama hamdulillah even if I thank a billion times taller for what he has given to me, it would not be sufficient, I will not be scratching the surface, it will not be a drop in the ocean.

00:44:15--> 00:44:16

The Other questions?

00:44:27--> 00:44:28

Oh,

00:44:38--> 00:44:45

the question by Jamal abdeen Asad Assalamu alaikum. Brother.

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

May Allah bless you. I'm watching from Edmonton, Canada.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

And the question that came on the Facebook just a couple of minutes back. My question is how can I achieve the horseshoe

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

Prayer. I feel my Salah lacks enough cushion. And the similar question that has been asked earlier on the WhatsApp. I'll inshallah clump them together so that we can answer your question in a shorter time.

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

Yes, this question was asked on the WhatsApp

00:45:30--> 00:45:32

sometime before, maybe a couple of days ago

00:45:34--> 00:45:46

of the Sorbonne from Bangladesh currently live in USA. My question is, could you kindly suggest us some ways or tips to concentrate better in our prayers and get taqwa of Allah?

00:45:47--> 00:46:03

a similar question is posed by Muhammad Imran Hussain Assalamualaikum. Sir, my name is Imran from Chittagong, Bangladesh. When I stand in my prayer, I remember the worldly things. And I keep thinking over and over again, about the moments of talking to my friends, how can I increase my attention in prayer?

00:46:05--> 00:46:09

a similar question again by Zerrin. conductor.

00:46:11--> 00:46:40

Assalamualaikum Sir, I'm from Bangladesh. Many children and adults ask, what should we imagine while praying to Allah? Should should it be the Kaaba or should we ask them to imagine space? And there are many such questions asking mainly on how should we concentrate on the salah and this problem of your mind deviating during Salah is common. Don't think it only happens to you it is very common it even happened amongst the farmers.

00:46:41--> 00:46:55

So this is a common phenomena that your mind deviates when you pray to Allah subhanaw taala and when you're doing work of Allah when you're doing our you know, you know the shaytan try then comes and David Fimo

00:46:56--> 00:46:56

and

00:46:58--> 00:47:05

just to make it a light moment, you know, once once Imam was praying,

00:47:06--> 00:47:49

Salah, McGriff, Salah, and after the month, put the Salah over. The metodi says that Imam you have prayed only to rocket. The man says no, no, I prayed to cut. So one person gets up and says, you have to do that I'm confident about it. He says hi. Because in Malmo groups Allah I calculate the profits of my business. Now I wasn't able to complete it that we have not finished all the data. And if it this is just a joke, just for like movement for your mind does deviate. And though it's a joke, it's a reality. People do even calculate the profit they will think which business should ideally and should I delete biscuits or should I deal in cold drinks or should fill in time it

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

happens

00:47:52--> 00:48:03

I've given a full lecture on this Salah the program chords I just this salad, the program it was I just live, which is available on the YouTube, you're most welcome to go and hear the full length, just in short,

00:48:04--> 00:48:14

that when you read your Salah, I always say that most of the Muslims, they don't understand Arabic language. So what we should do because we are non Arabs,

00:48:15--> 00:48:19

our 80% of the Muslims, they're non Arabs.

00:48:20--> 00:48:35

So more than 80% of all don't know Arabic language. So I always tell them that at least you should memorize the meaning of those portion of the Quran that we recite in the Salah. You should know the meaning of Surah Fatiha very well.

00:48:37--> 00:48:41

Monitor him In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful.

00:48:42--> 00:48:49

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the words are Rahmani Raheem, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, and so on and so forth.

00:48:51--> 00:49:27

That you recite the sutras, the sutras that you recite whether it be for a class, whether it be for an ass. So if Allah whatever surah see to it, that those surah that you recite in your Salah, you should know the meaning very well. Now when you are reciting the Arabic portion in your mind, because you don't know the meaning only a small portion of your mind is occupied maybe 5% 95% of a mind is free. And most of the Muslim you ask them to recite for a father from the middle of the sleep they will do it

00:49:30--> 00:49:39

and only a small portion so the remaining is blank. That is the reason he keeps on wandering. Now when you decide in Arabic, and when you also

00:49:40--> 00:49:51

at the same time translate at the back of your mind to decide in Arabic at the back of your mind The meaning is being translated. Now more portion of your mind is occupied less chance including

00:49:52--> 00:50:00

those who not to begin the language besides reciting also concentrate on the meaning and will deviate less. Now once you start doing

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

This may be after a few months, it becomes mechanical. You're reciting in Arabic you know the translation. So, well you can say it in the middle of a night in the middle of asleep. So, what

00:50:11--> 00:50:13

then, besides

00:50:14--> 00:50:22

even recollecting the meaning also concentrate on the meaning, a human being cannot concentrate on two things together.

00:50:24--> 00:51:04

You can consider it 50 50% fine number while driving a car, you are concentrating partly and also talking, no problem. But if you're reading a book, you can eat a book and even listen to something else but your concentration is divided, but 100% you want to consider doing the book and the meaning you cannot do 100% reading the book and understanding the meaning and doing something else no. So similarly, when you are doing the Salah, in your Salah when it's setting the Quran, recollect the meaning concentrate on the meaning, the more you concentrate on the meaning less will your mind deviate and less chances the evil thoughts will come less chances you will think of something else.

00:51:04--> 00:51:47

So that's the reason but to concentrate if you know the meaning, if you don't know the meaning, how will you concentrate? This is the most important factor for concentrating and forgetting crucial in salah and you try this, it will get you wonders, but your concentration level also keeps on deferring. The more you concentrate the more you will you will get the crucial in Salah even for the children tell them the meaning of sacrifice certified to have a class and that time it's not necessarily that you have to think of something concentration itself occupies your mind. You don't have to see an image I don't see an image. Yes, if you don't have anything then you may have to

00:51:47--> 00:51:56

bring an image that Kava etc but when you're concentrating on the meaning image is not required. And we'll get the real question. I hope that answers the question in brief for more details. You can

00:51:58--> 00:52:01

see my talk on Salah, the programming towards righteousness.

00:52:14--> 00:52:15

We will

00:52:18--> 00:52:25

the the message on the YouTube just a few minutes back I just got on my mobile.

00:52:27--> 00:52:29

Muhammad, such

00:52:31--> 00:52:31

as mentioned,

00:52:33--> 00:52:36

MD says Kim, sir, I want to convert to Islam.

00:52:38--> 00:52:48

If you want to convert to Islam, it's a good thing. Alhamdulillah it is the best you can do in your life. You're most welcome. There is there is to convert to Islam is very easy.

00:52:52--> 00:53:34

There are mainly two basic requirements for anyone to accept Islam, number one, to believe and bear witness that there is only one Almighty God Allah subhanaw taala was good, no partners, you have got no associates and you should worship him him a lot and no one else you should do idol worship, etc. Number two, we believe that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the last and funded messenger of Almighty God. If these two things we accept, then you can enter the fold of Islam and then you keep on practicing Islam following the five pillars that we discussed. So I'd like to ask you, brother that I hope you want to accept Islam or a free will and I hope that no one is forcing you to accept

00:53:34--> 00:53:55

Islam and it's not a must that you have to do it in public but since you requested me I will say it in Arabic and you can repeat it I will say it slowly and I hope no one is giving you money to accept Islam you're doing it out of thrown out of your free will. And surely one of the reasons that accepted Islam may be one of the reasons I mentioned

00:53:56--> 00:53:57

in the answer my first question

00:53:58--> 00:54:00

I said I'll be better and you can repeat it.

00:54:02--> 00:54:03

I shadow

00:54:06--> 00:54:07

Allah

00:54:10--> 00:54:11

a boo

00:54:29--> 00:54:30

boo.

00:54:31--> 00:54:36

If you've repeated this Mashallah, you're a Muslim and May Allah accept

00:54:37--> 00:54:59

and May Allah forgive all your passes may convert into good deed and May Allah grant progenitor for those. I'm not used to giving shahzeb and I cannot hear back. The feedback will be the replies coming on onto social media. And I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that me you get more knowledge of the deen and we will practice more of Islam and inshallah

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

Maybe be resurrected together on the Day of Judgment inshallah.

00:55:14--> 00:55:17

Again from the YouTube, Salman Khurshid.

00:55:18--> 00:55:57

I'm salmaan Krishna from Kashmir. My question is that it is mentioned for Look, man last verse number one can no No, no one can predict what is inside the womb of the pregnant woman but to the medical science can how is it contradicting with science? The question was, is there the verse in the Quran in surah? Look, man, chapter number 31. The last verse was number 27, that Allah says that only the knowledge of the art is only with Allah subhanaw taala. And only Allah knows when and when it will drain, and what will a person earn and what is in the womb of the mother? So one of the things that only Allah knows admission, the Quran is what is in the womb of the mother. But

00:55:57--> 00:56:38

unfortunately, some of the translations especially will do translation, they have translated it as only Allah knows what is the sex of the child in the mother's womb, which is not a part of the Quran. It is their own addition, what the Quran says, Only Allah knows what is in the womb of the mother. It means only Allah knows whether the child in the mother's womb will be a boon for society or will he be obeyed for society? Will he go to Gen now or will he go to john will go to Paradise? Or will he go to hell really be beneficial for the parents or will not be beneficial? This with all the medical equipments in the world? No doctor can tell you when the child in the mother's womb will

00:56:38--> 00:56:57

go to heaven or hell? Will it be beneficial for the man or will it be benefit for the mother or not? For this is the real translation that don't we don't know about what in the womb of the mother talking about the other thing is not about the sex? That's a mistranslation. So that error goes to the translator not Allah subhanaw taala.

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

Next question,

00:57:10--> 00:57:11

this question

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

Assalamualaikum waalaikumsalam remote from UAE.

00:57:21--> 00:57:23

I reverted to Islam last year in April.

00:57:25--> 00:57:28

Is it necessary to change name in Islam?

00:57:30--> 00:57:36

Second question. I was blessed with the baby boy last year, but I did not do a kicker.

00:57:37--> 00:57:43

Is it mandatory? If yes, what shall I do to do a kicker from YUI? I need your advice on this.

00:57:46--> 00:57:57

As far as the revert have I Is it necessary to change the name it is not compulsory for a non Muslim in accepts Islam to change the name unless the name contains the element of

00:57:58--> 00:58:40

an element of something which is an associate of of, of Almighty God. Like if your name is ROM and many people think ROM is Almighty God. So if such elements are there, of schilke, then you should change your name otherwise, changing your name is not compulsory. But if you change is preferable so that people know you accept Islam Give a name, which has a good meaning. Because meaning has a rough impact on on on the human being itself. But changing is not fourth. Regarding the second question that is it mandatory to do a kicker and you had a boy and you didn't do a kicker? And if you have to do it, should you do it now you're living in UAE. There are different opinion as far as whether

00:58:40--> 00:59:28

Africa is mandatory or not some of the scholars satisfied but the majority say it is from the dhammapada. And I agree that the right ruling is that doing a key is not a Makkah. It's so very important. So now, this practice of a kinka slaughtering a sheep in the name of the newborn is a common practice. Even of normal Julia, before Islam came to that country, and then headed into the harbor save that before in the days of Julia used to slaughter a sheep and smear the blood on the forehead of the child. But after we accepted Islam and tip wrote Allah subhanaw taala. Now we slaughter a sheep. And we clean the head of the newborn baby and we smear the head with saffron, and

00:59:28--> 00:59:59

the Prophet there are various ways in which the Prophet recommended to do Africa. And the Prophet said that if it's a boy, you have to slaughter two sheep of the same kind. And if it is a daughter, then only one sheep. So if it was a son, two sheep of the same kind, if it's a daughter, if it's a female, then only one and the reason that the rich have discussed another part but doing a key card it is fun not to do on the seventh day. But if you cannot do and if you do later, so it is

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

Accept it, do it as soon as possible. Again, it's not a fun, but if you do it is preferable, even if you want to do it now for a child, you can do it because it's the boy you have to start to to sheep, or to God

01:00:12--> 01:00:16

have a similar kind, because it's a boy. Hope that answers the question.

01:00:28--> 01:00:31

This is a question from wassim Muhammad, Sergio

01:00:32--> 01:00:37

Dhaka, Bangladesh. How can a Muslim woman

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

give Dawa especially if her husband is almost a full time guy?

01:00:44--> 01:01:09

How can a woman do Dawa? If the husband is a full time guy, it is compulsory that every Muslim where the man or woman should do Dawa, where the husband or wife or whether the spouse is a die or not, it is compulsory, it is one of the requirement for any human to go to general point to sorelle a search app 903 was the moment to start. Now how can do I would say that if

01:01:10--> 01:01:43

a woman her husband is a full time guy, all the more easier to do for dava. Similarly for a husband if the woman is a full time die, for him to do the work is much more easier, as Allah says in the Quran in the same verse of fasting I'm sorry bacala chapter two was the 187 hoon Allah pasola como antonova So now that you are the garments and they are governments, if both husband and wife dies, it is excellent, it's much more easier. And and while women are doing dry should be careful that you should not break the rules of the Sharia.

01:01:45--> 01:02:29

But many times when women do go dava when I travel in the foreign Western countries, I find that Muslim women are doing Dawa, but they are not careful in maintaining the Sharia rules. And also see that there is a Muslim woman wearing a hijab with a non Muslim man in a closed cabin and discussing for us together about Islam. This is not accepted our beloved partner masala Simon said if two ma is to na merom are closed in a room the third person is a devil. You have to maintain your hijab you cannot look into a nama man, a man looking into a woman and a man or a woman looking into a man now mirim into the eyes. And then for concentration and and with our fast together you have loyal gaze,

01:02:29--> 01:03:06

you glance It's okay. You cannot look into your into the eyes of phenomenon and speak for minutes and hours together. So, you have to maintain the job while giving to Tao one to one is preferable Amanda's to a man and a woman does for women only if a speciality is required and woman cannot give the answers and if the man and if the woman goes to a man for seeking answers, they should be you should should see to it that there is a madam like if like in an organization Islamic is a foundation when a lady's question could be answered by the ladies wing over my wife. And if appointment was required, my wife would be with me or the lady's husband was there or the lady

01:03:06--> 01:03:37

father was there. We maintain the hijab we don't look into the eyes we lower the gap. It's possible. But the best is man to man and woman to woman when it is one to one. Otherwise, while writing books of course, a man writes a book everyone reads no pro woman writes a book, everyone reads no problem at all. While giving lecture it is preferable a man gives a lecture. There's no problem being a mixed gathering. But if a woman is giving a lecture it is preferable that the audience should only be females so that she can maintain a hijab, and she can maintain.

01:03:39--> 01:04:04

regarding how can a woman do Dawa? Especially if the husband is a full time guy. The best example is my wife, Mashallah even I would call almost full times I am a full time guy. And my wife is almost like, and I and I selected, marrying my wife or the boys he was a day. And it's much more easier. Because even if you're a die,

01:04:05--> 01:04:45

you cannot say I'm a die. That's why I will not give time to my family. Our beloved Prophet said that the best amongst the believers is the one who's best to summon especially the why, why should a full time die and you're busy? The chances are you're giving less. So if a wife is a die, then what do you do you give time to discuss that 32 in one Venn diagram, you're doing the work of spreading the message of Allah at the same time giving time to your wife. So if your if your wife was in a die, maybe I would have spent half an hour with my wife in a day besides the basic thing, but if she did, I can spend more hours and today I spend a few hours every day discussing about our issues

01:04:45--> 01:04:51

discussing how can we promote Islam. So it's a Venn diagram doing Dawa. As well as,

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

as well as giving time to your wife. And when I got married people told me that now that you're married, your time for that will become less

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

And I was worried. But because I made a daiya I started giving previous as to give before marriage maybe

01:05:07--> 01:05:08

eight, nine hours

01:05:09--> 01:05:17

a day. When I married I started giving 12 hours when our children, you open the school and give time for school also started giving 16 hours a day.

01:05:18--> 01:05:40

It's a Venn diagram. How can women do dour by various ways? They can. One of the ways is if they're good with the pen, they can write articles on the social media, they can write books, the literature can be spread, it can be read by non Muslims, male and female no problem. She can give lectures especially exclusively nonsense exclusively to the ladies

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

and my wife to give several lectures

01:05:45--> 01:06:24

in in India, when we shifted to Malaysia, she used to give twice a week lectures and a lot of woman used to come if now because of lockdown. She started getting you know, I'm feeling uneasy, you know. And now the month of Ramadan has come and there's no lecture etc. So she started giving online. Never before she even online, she doesn't have any audio of a lecture. Not that is haram because voice doesn't come in the aura. But she wanted to be more careful. So for all these years, more than 25 years that she has done Dawa. We have restricted any video recording we have restrict audio recording, but now the situation was such that we are going to be locked down for two months and not

01:06:24--> 01:07:06

doing now for two months she could not and she asked me I said no problem. All the scholars agree that wife of a woman doesn't come in aura. So she started giving online on webinar. Then I told her why webinar go on the Facebook. So now when she comes on the Facebook, there's only an audio live lecture with PowerPoint presentation. She's not seen in the webinar or on the Facebook, but a PowerPoint that a PowerPoint which keeps on changing depending upon what she's speaking to she's not see because that is preferable because if you have a lady and the close up is there there may be no madam there may be magenta coming, it may break the job. So I'm not in favor of woman coming on

01:07:06--> 01:07:14

videos and it's a high chances the job can be broken. So she is doing on audio. If they're coming in a club then no problem.

01:07:15--> 01:07:18

But I prefer an audio with a PowerPoint.

01:07:19--> 01:08:02

And she has started first is what initially only a webinar and there are a few 100 people are coming now. Last time just last Sunday, she went on the Facebook and more than 1200 people saw her not saw her funny herder and for the PowerPoint presentation. inshallah, when time rolls, the audience would become bigger the reach would be much more inshallah so data can be done in various ways, but preferably, the woman should without the woman and take care of the woman problems because a woman can take care of the woman problem much more like asking questions on, on on the on the thing of Islam, about fasting about the women issue, a woman will be much more comfortable to ask a woman to

01:08:02--> 01:08:40

in these cases, of course. And if she is the wife of a die, all the mores and easier, they'll understand each other better. And many times when we go I travel a lot, I've given lectures in more than 40 countries of the world. And my wife has accompanied many times and she has given lectures in more than 20 countries of the world. And my children may be more than 10 countries of the world. When we go many time as a family. When I accept an invitation, they even called My Children My Wife. So we go to a conference or exclusive lecture organised for me series of lecture, I and my son speak to the gent my phone my phone starts give the talk for half an hour 45 minutes, then I give a talk

01:08:40--> 01:09:25

for about one hour 15 minutes, one and a half hour for the question answer session simultaneously, not at the same time. But the same day, maybe in the morning, my lectures in the evening, at a different time. They they separate exclusive gathering of women, like when we enter Indonesia, there were 1000s of women 5000 3000 2002 exclusively, Lady gathering, and men and my daughter spoke first then my wife spoke and it was a 11 day lecture tour. After the lecture got over we extended for two days. And we had only family time. So it's a Venn diagram, we are serving Allah subhanaw taala for his commandments, to endeavor, with the children with the family for the full family that they It is

01:09:25--> 01:09:55

nothing better than that, that you can put on last minute Allah. So I request that all the business sister see to it that if you can make dava as your full time profession in the best profession, Allah says in the Quran in surah facilite chapter number 41 verse number 33 unless a woman asked on the column women boiler law he was going to follow home color in aluminum assuming who is better in speed then wondering why should the view of the Lord work such that I'm Muslim, the best profession according to Buddhist Quran, according to Allah subhanaw taala if I die

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

if everyone in the family the die, nothing like it. If you cannot

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

Be a full time die. At least be a part time die. Don't be a spare time die, but at least be a part time die.

01:10:13--> 01:10:14

We are from hospital.

01:10:16--> 01:10:33

Yes mean Amazon raian blah blah Lu de la V for the sake of Allah from Bangladesh or do we have Shaheen Hamad a small Hussein Saudia may further Islam shall mean perveen Allah full Islam

I wish all of you

01:10:58--> 01:10:59

welcome Salaam

01:11:02--> 01:11:04

we will take the next question.

01:11:12--> 01:11:26

I am Abdi Nasser Mohammed from Kenya. I would like to know if one is a fast is nullified if one sees sperms on the tip of one's private part without ejaculating it voluntary or by force. Thank you.

01:11:28--> 01:12:04

The question was is that if a person see semen on his private part without forcefully doing it I decorating is the fast nullified. He's talking about nocturnal emission when you sleep and and it's called a wet dream, nocturnal emission is a more scientific word, wet dream. If you have a wet dream, and there is a collation of sperm without doing forcefully or intentionally, your fast is not broken. Your faster not broken, you can get up have a bath, do Ghazal and you can offer your Salah the fast is not broken in wet dream or nocturnal emission.

01:12:09--> 01:12:20

Next question a smile from Nairobi, Kenya. If a person takes food in his or her mouth, unintentionally, but do not follow it, does it break the fast?

01:12:22--> 01:12:29

Even if a person takes food intentionally in his mouth and does not follow it, the fast will not break.

01:12:31--> 01:12:32

Let me give you a very good example.

01:12:36--> 01:12:42

When we do Voodoo, we are taking water intentionally into our mouth. But we're not solving it. We are gargling

01:12:44--> 01:13:19

and spitting it out does your first break? And the answer is no. So if you're farther than break when you take wood or water intentionally, similarly, if you take food intentionally also you should not unnecessarily but if you take any spit out it doesn't break. For example, if a woman is cooking in the kitchen, and she wants to know whether the fault is correct or not, she can easily take and put it in the tongue because the taste buds on the tongue. You don't have to swallow the food. So if you taste it and spit it out, it doesn't break. Some people do very little you know as a precaution, good no problem. But even if you take a lot

01:13:20--> 01:13:37

you put it in the mouth and spit it out just like water will take food doesn't break. If you take even a lot of food, put it into modern spread out it will not break. You should not unnecessarily do it. But if you're cooking food take a little bit taste it will come to know about the taste but then the tongue it is not

01:13:38--> 01:14:18

in your throat. So after tasting you can spit it out fast is not broken. And it is permissible. But let me answer something extra. If someone takes food or water unintentionally and follows it, he forgets the first thing goes to the fridge, pulls water the glass breaks it or he doesn't remember fasting. He takes a sandwich and eats it does the fast break. Our beloved Prophet Musa Salim said as mentioned it's a Buhari one number three, number 1933 that if a person unintentionally has food or water, let them continue keeping his past

01:14:20--> 01:14:41

till the end and let him consider the food or the water he ate or drank. It is from Allah. That means if by mistake, unintentionally, you have food or water, you drink water, your fire doesn't break because it's unintentionally and you think that it is from Allah a blessing from Allah. But you cannot be perfectly okay.

01:14:43--> 01:14:53

unintentionally, however, you cannot have unintentionally knowingly that are fasting. So it should be purely out of an intention. And if you have even in that condition, your file doesn't break.

01:15:21--> 01:15:24

The question posed on the Facebook by Abdul Rahman

01:15:25--> 01:15:32

Assalamualaikum brother, suppose a Muslim doctor does while treating a COVID-19 patient

01:15:34--> 01:15:36

dies, suppose a Muslim doctor dies

01:15:38--> 01:15:51

many times or becomes I footage does, but I realized when I when I type out to tap on it becomes linear on top and it becomes low. So, if suppose a Muslim doctor dies while treating a COVID-19 patient, does he get the reward for martyr

01:15:52--> 01:15:59

and uncoated daddies earlier in my first session, as well as the second session that our beloved prophet masala Salaam said its ID

01:16:02--> 01:16:02

of

01:16:03--> 01:16:04

say Buhari

01:16:06--> 01:16:09

one, number seven, and the number 5734.

01:16:10--> 01:16:11

That,

01:16:12--> 01:16:34

that a plague is sent by last monitor as a punishment to the believers or to the unbelievers to wherever you want. But as for the believers, the plague is a blessing. And if a believer simply within sheer faith, if he stayed in the place, where plea is there, and he believes that nothing will befall him, except what Allah has ordained for him,

01:16:36--> 01:16:44

then he will get the suburb of matter. And as I said, this, there are three categories of people here, that if a person who dies

01:16:45--> 01:17:26

in the plague he had gets a suburb. If a person gets infected by plague, but does not die, yet he gets the Sahaba for matter, and if a person doesn't get infected, yet he believes and have faith in Allah yet he gets a Sahaba for matter if he dies, another disease called as a matter, but let me differentiate between a plague and COVID-19 Coronavirus, disease 2019 plague is an epidemic. So for plague, you get the Sahaba from Marta but for every for every epidemic, you will not get the Sahaba matter. A plague is an epidemic due to bacteria. It is bacterial.

01:17:27--> 01:18:15

COVID-19 is viral. It's an epidemic, but it's not bacterial. And plus there is another Hadith of the Prophet masala solemn that read the Prophet said that the plague will never enter Medina and under that he says that the plague and that the jar will not enter Makkah. So the plague cannot enter Medina cannot enter muddy mcra and we know today that the government is taking precaution Mata Medina. So why should they take precaution of of COVID-19 do they did they say he, but COVID-19 is not a plague. So COVID-19 is an epidemic but not a play. So the Hadith says if you die of plague, you are a martyr. If you die in a place a plague is there. Even if you don't die. As long as you

01:18:15--> 01:18:27

have sincere faith you have faith in your faith in Allah, nothing will happen except for Allah wills, then you get the Sahaba for Mata irrespective you die or you don't die. But COVID-19 is not a plague. So please do not

01:18:28--> 01:19:03

mistake in yourself that every epidemic is a plague. So if a patient dies of COVID-19 are a doctor dies while treating the patient because he's treating a patient. He's trying to save a human life. Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter number five was number 32. If you save one human being, it's as though you have saved the whole of humanity. So he will get the reward for saving a human being or saving all of humanity. But he will not be called as a martyr. He will not get the Sahaba formata. Hope that answers the question.

01:19:20--> 01:19:21

The next question

01:19:24--> 01:19:24

is

01:19:25--> 01:19:28

from sister by the name of Miriam. She's very what

01:19:30--> 01:19:31

she from Birmingham UK.

01:19:33--> 01:19:54

Salaam from a new Muslim who was a Christian before. My children are six and nine years now. Sometimes they ask too fast, but I don't know if they are ready yet. I don't know if I'm ready to let them stay without food for the whole day. Please advise me Thank you.

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

Fasting is fourth only for an adult Muslim.

01:20:01--> 01:20:05

Who is sane? Who's healthy, who's not traveling.

01:20:07--> 01:20:09

But it is not for for a minor.

01:20:10--> 01:20:26

But if a minor does it, it is preferable they get trained as similarly, for playing Salah it's only for a Muslim who is an adult not for a minor, but the heartbeat of a beloved partner. So Psalm Josiah d3 says that

01:20:27--> 01:20:35

encourage your children to pray at the age of seven. And at the age of nine, if they do not pray, you can even use force

01:20:36--> 01:21:09

though first becomes when they become adult for a man maybe 1314 years for a woman, depending when she becomes mature at the age of 14 or 13 or 12, but not at the age of nine. So the Prophet says encouraging them inside them at the age of seven and force them at the age of nine. I wouldn't say the same age can be used for the for the children here because fasting is a different thing, but surely encourage them at a much younger age before they reach adult so that they get trained as early as possible I remember that the first time I fasted my age was something to be close to three years

01:21:11--> 01:21:14

and I kept the full Ramadan without when I was in the second standard at the age of seven.

01:21:16--> 01:21:29

My children first and much more before me, my son maybe at the age of three, and he kept the full grown man maybe at the age of six, my daughter maybe she fostered the first time at the age of two. And she kept the full rundown maybe at the age of four or five.

01:21:30--> 01:21:37

So encouraging them is very good. Even if a child fast and breaks in between the resource and because it's

01:21:38--> 01:21:52

not that they have to compensate after I'm done, it's some voluntary fast if you break you don't have to compensate. So we are encouraged them. You can give them gifts Okay, if you fast I will give you some gift I will give you a toy

01:21:53--> 01:22:22

I'll get something from good food for you or get for your ice cream or chocolate it's good and get like them and see to it that they found the full month as early as possible depending upon each individual not that because I could keep the full fast at the age of seven now my son could give the age of seven I could keep the full rundown I could fast my son at the age of six and my daughter at the age of three or four every child cannot do it. So depending upon the capacity of your child

01:22:24--> 01:22:36

if they're not complete so no problem at all Mashallah you at least kept have no problem. Next time we'll get to the fourth because it's not a fun and correct them. Many of the parents are afraid Oh, my son will get saying Don't worry, nothing is gonna happen.

01:22:39--> 01:22:53

Don't eat and carry them. And believe me it becomes part and in our school, Mashallah people from cynic at first and relief to many of them used to find the forum then, and all of them at least a few of these items.

01:23:11--> 01:23:12

The next question is

01:23:13--> 01:23:28

from Hassan Bhutan from Kashmir, Sir, how can we contribute financially for your organization? Is it legal to contribute from India? a similar question was posed by qq Mrs. Nur from the way

01:23:29--> 01:24:01

Assalamualaikum kindly help, how can I donate to pitch TV? I tried doing it from its website but failed twice. The basic question is that how can they contribute to the organization, Islam, which is one dish International, UK, or can contribute to pitch TV, and one of the ways is you can go to our website. And once you go to the website of pitch TV, that phone number is given. And you can contribute. And I'm aware that when you transfer especially after 911, it has become more difficult to contribute to Islamic organization. And especially if it's outside your country,

01:24:02--> 01:24:13

it becomes more difficult. So when people try it, they are not successful. And therefore they're trying to, you know, prevent all the DAO activities, you know, those who don't want Islam to spread

01:24:14--> 01:24:30

it you can go to the website, it's legal to contribute to the organization, you can contribute even to pitch TV, the thing is there the account is there. But those people who really are really wanting to help, and you know, somehow the other they get in touch with me.

01:24:31--> 01:25:00

You know, and you know that because of the restrictions that are there from the radius and we are the policy, we always believe that we follow the rule of the country in India, whatever we accept, it was officially in, in our trust account. If we accept in UK we accepted the official trust account. We believe in following the rules and regulation of the country so that we do not break the law of the country so that we can do Tao freely. But in spite of the following the rules, you know the enemies of Islam laughter as they're trying to see that the Muslim organization

01:25:00--> 01:25:37

Don't get the funding, they're putting pressure on the bank is a put the pressure on the organization. So in this case, but natural, a businessman who is really rich, you know the situation because he's a businessman, he's a millionaire or a multi billionaire, he's a billionaire, he knows the difficulty in business. So in this case is the businessman who really wants to help or die, who really wants to help me, they get in touch with me, and very easy, people know where I am. And once they get in touch with me, they find out which is a very legal way to contribute, without causing problem to the enemies of Islam, to contribute, and big amounts. And many people call me for lunch,

01:25:38--> 01:26:03

and for dinner, and for me, and for every meal, they give huge amounts and big amounts Alhamdulillah. So those who really want to contribute to come and meet me, when I was in Bombay, they have to come to Bombay, when I'm in the way they struggle with the way when I was in Saudi Arabia mentality, when I'm in Malaysia, they come to meet with Malaysia, they come and meet and we see an amicable way, which is legal, without getting into problems. And yet, they want to hide that entity which is good look.

01:26:04--> 01:26:38

So what we realized that those really people big people who want to support any activity, whether it be di, whether it be me, whether it be PC, whether it be other day, because they're in the field, they know how to get in touch, they get in touch, and the support, they can get in touch with my friend, they're getting in touch with me, it's very easy in the age of science and technology, today, the whole world is a global village, but for those people who are not so well versed, and maybe an average common Muslim wants to contribute, you try it through the website to the channel official channel, if you cannot, my advice to you would be you can always contribute to a Dharma

01:26:38--> 01:26:40

organization in your country.

01:26:41--> 01:27:18

If you cannot contribute to pitch TV, you cannot contribute to Islamic Islamic Research Foundation International, what do you do you search for the Dow organization in your country in your city, Google it, do a little bit research and contribute to them you will get double so I will get some of helping them and getting some help helping us also and your server will not be reduced because I told you that so they will get follow up. The people who you contribute to they will thank you they will do the work even I will do the work. The main aim of ours is to spread the message of Allah subhanaw taala but see to it that the organization is authentic organization with a genuine

01:27:18--> 01:27:33

organization doesn't take time to do research and contribute inshallah I will think the amount has reached me because our main purpose is to spread the message of Islam if you're contributing to another organization indirectly are contributing to us and we will get the top hope that's the question.

01:27:44--> 01:27:45

And all the brothers and sisters

01:28:40--> 01:28:43

waalaikumsalam I mean for all your doors.

01:28:46--> 01:28:50

We can take maybe one or two questions, the time is shot.

01:28:58--> 01:28:59

The next question

01:29:00--> 01:29:02

is from Rizwan from India,

01:29:03--> 01:29:10

following one's own saliva blood once fast. Normally, the way you

01:29:11--> 01:29:59

normally follow the saliva that is secreted from afar is not intentional. If you keep on accumulating a lot of saliva and then trying to gulp it down. That's mcru and that fast, but generally, people are not aware that there are saliva. There are salivary glands in the mouth, which keeps on secreting saliva throughout the day, on average, in the human being half to one and a half liter 500 ml to 1500 ml of saliva sacred every day. On average, we fast for 12 hours. That means every human being was fasting, about 250 to 750 ml of saliva secreted in half a day, when you first had to keep on gulping

01:30:00--> 01:30:10

Without knowing when you're sleeping, your security, now gulping and some people, you know, in my school last two seasons to split up what is pretty normal. So, to think, you know,

01:30:11--> 01:30:31

gulping it's not possible that you spit 100% of us alive out, it's not possible, we get dehydrated. So swallowing the normal saliva which is secreted without initiation acclimating it doesn't break your fast at all, and you can continue fasting, it is normal for saliva to be secreted, and to be to be followed.

01:30:33--> 01:30:36

We're running short of time inshallah, we'll take one more question.

01:30:38--> 01:31:27

Before we end the session, this question, this question is from Sabina hair, a key Can I give the car to my own sister who is not so poor, but can't lead her life comfortably, as far as giving Zakat to the relatives, it is encouraged only those relatives who cannot give are your mother and father and the direct descendants and your daughter and son, and the direct descendants, these these relatives, your direct close relatives, your blood relatives, you cannot give a thought to you are supposed to take care of them or they're supposed to take care of you You cannot give but to other relatives you can give as long as you can give to a brother You can give to a sister You can give as

01:31:27--> 01:32:07

long as you are not taking care of the basic needs there are many times you know the brothers taking care of the basic need of the sister and then if he says okay you know now want to give SOHCAHTOA that nobody's doing he's giving you the cut and he's he's saving his other money. So that means you are protecting of us now you cannot give that other breakevens you cannot give that to your servant I think you should have salary I've given him a report but if he's due to Sir You cannot give us money as salary you can give the money as gift Yes, but yet we have to give you a complete salary. So if by giving the card to your sister and if you have been you should have been giving regularly

01:32:07--> 01:32:47

to support our daily activities and then give additionally is a car no problem it's good to your immediate to your other relatives. If it's for loan then even if you are giving money for protection if you're giving extra for loan, the cat yes one category is those who are are among those who are debtors. So given two relative is double Saba one thing is a fulfilling your obligation of Zakat and you helping your relatives you get double sabab. So giving the car to your relatives preferable proceed they are not a mother, father and your son and daughter no direct descendant or descendant. You're not taking care of the basic needs then and compensating for that. As long as it's not that

01:32:48--> 01:32:58

giving the thought to relatives is preferable. Give them support them, you get to survive. And we've run out of time and hope that the viewers have

01:32:59--> 01:33:24

enjoyed the session and do pray for me inshallah. And just a reminder, those whose questions have not been answered, inshallah, I'll pick up one person WhatsApp number and give him or her a call. Maybe today or tomorrow or day after tomorrow before the next session. Don't be shocked if you get a call from me. Until we meet until we meet again.

01:33:26--> 01:33:27

On Saturday, till then

01:33:29--> 01:33:32
