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

Now we will be having the question and answer session.

00:00:10--> 00:00:21

We would like you to kindly understand and observe the rules that have to be followed during the question and answer session so that we can derive the maximum benefit from it.

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

Three months has been provided for the questions from the audience to down here below,

00:00:31--> 00:00:35

and one up in the center in the balcony for the ladies.

00:00:37--> 00:01:06

one question at a time will be put on the mic. The first question being asked by the lady on the top, then we move down to the burger on my right hand side. Then we move up again to the next lady in the balcony. We moved down on my left hand side to the next branch. And similar fashion, we move up and down in the center on the top and on the two sides below.

00:01:09--> 00:01:16

written questions on papers, which are available from volunteers standing in the aisles

00:01:17--> 00:01:23

will be given a second preference after the questions on the mics have been answered by Dr. Zakir

00:01:25--> 00:01:34

Christians are should be on the topic, women's rights in Islam, modernizing or outdated only.

00:01:35--> 00:01:48

Kindly state your question briefly to this point, preferably in one to three sentences. This is a question and answer session, not a lecture or a debate session.

00:01:49--> 00:02:00

Only one question at a time. Maybe. If time permits, we may allow you a second chance after the others have completed their chance.

00:02:02--> 00:02:17

In the interest of having a less time racing, a more educated and an interesting question and answer session. Our decision to allow or disallow relevant questions or time wasting questions will be final.

00:02:18--> 00:02:52

In the interest of eliciting a proper and clear answer from our speaker. Kindly state your name and designation before putting forward your question your name and designation before you put forward your question so that we can give you a more appropriate answer. Thank you. We start a question and answer session. Dr. Zucker night ready at his money. The question is ready. May we have the first question from the ladies in the balcony?

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

paradise

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

that when she enters paradise,

00:03:21--> 00:03:26

there's a bit of a mitten, what will the woman get when she dies?

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

The brand has mentioned the word

00:03:36--> 00:03:36

as mentioned

00:03:38--> 00:03:38

in

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

self no funny

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

Welcome

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

to

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

welcome with drinky it's mentioned in chapter 55.

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

In

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

chapter number 46, what am I going to do

00:03:59--> 00:04:05

many of the transitions especially during the transition have done such

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

a beautiful meeting.

00:04:09--> 00:04:14

The word would mean a beautiful man. It means a bit of a minute, then

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

what will determine that is

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

actually the word

00:04:21--> 00:04:22

approval

00:04:25--> 00:04:31

which is applicable to the man an hour which is applicable to the woman and it signifies

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

the characteristic

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

which means

00:04:40--> 00:04:44

really polite and describes especially the worship of the eye.

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

The similar thing you have mentioned

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

in step number three

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

and number four it says

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

donathan which means companion.

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

So the word

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

is rightly considered by Mohammed

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

and also by Optimizely

00:05:18--> 00:05:30

actually made a companion or no gender for the mind, he will get a wounded lady with vigor for life and for a good man.

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

Hold on to the question.

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

Suzanne, kazi. And then

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

I would like to pose a certain question to a document

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

for evidence,

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

given

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

evidence, why are the human witnesses against one minute?

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

But then also really important question

00:06:02--> 00:06:05

that Why are women witness

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

to one witness and some

00:06:12--> 00:06:19

witnesses are not equal to one woman witness, witnesses are not equal to one nine witnesses, in all cases,

00:06:21--> 00:06:25

only in certain cases, there are at least five of us in the one

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

we speak

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

about the witnesses without specifying male or female.

00:06:35--> 00:06:46

There is an indication in which two women witnesses is equal to one witness. And that's just number two, what's number 22, which happens to be the longest one,

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

it says

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

that vendor invoice and financial transaction

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

in which future obligations are there

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

to witnesses among the men,

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

if you can't,

00:07:06--> 00:07:16

if you can't find too many pieces, take one men and three women for that, if one of them gets confused, the other will remind you this was

00:07:18--> 00:07:22

just number two. Number two is to only deal with financial aspects.

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

Only in finance last.

00:07:28--> 00:07:28

But

00:07:32--> 00:07:43

only if you can't find too many witnesses. Take one man and Truman. Let me give you an example for a better understanding. Suppose a person wants to undergo surgery

00:07:45--> 00:07:51

under one operation, but not sure you're taking the advice of a qualified surgeon.

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

He cannot find two qualified surgeons who would

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

have been qualified surgeon at least

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

two normal dental practice.

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

Because a surgeon

00:08:08--> 00:08:36

in the field of surgery as compared to a doctor in the same fashion, since the responsibility of the financial aspects has been laid on the shoulder of the Muslim, he is in finance as compared to the woman. That's why the best option for witnesses and financial transactions is to men. If you can find two men, then one woman for one man and woman

00:08:38--> 00:08:46

again, instead of my dog jumped number five, welcome under that when anyone writes a bill of inheritance,

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

dealing with financial transactions episode

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

some of

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

that human migration

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

in cases of model

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

the feminine

00:09:05--> 00:09:15

model that even gets the model to women witnesses equals the wonders of man only under these two conditions of finance and case.

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

One

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

Islam This

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

is Chapter Two

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

circumstances

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

equals to one man, let's analyze.

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

Let's

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

insert a new chapter we're going to look

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

at if any of you put a charge against you have

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

to have no evidence.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

solid evidence is sufficient

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

The husband wants to put a charge against the wife, or the wife to put the child against the husband. But no witnesses, they're solid, evidence is sufficient. This work clearly indicates that one woman witness is equal to one witness of man.

00:10:17--> 00:10:36

There are several cases with a judicial review. Even in cursive typing, one woman witness is sufficient some judiciary that in the long run, one witness will require at the end of two witnesses are required. It does not matter whether they're a man or a woman.

00:10:38--> 00:10:42

certain cases, nines witness cannot be accepted only.

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

Suppose you want to give a witness

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

the barrier

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

government dies, the business

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

can only return government.

00:11:01--> 00:11:08

And in extreme cases, when you try and find a woman, then can the husband give directly so you're the woman witnesses, preferably?

00:11:13--> 00:11:47

One, those who are interested in writing question on the slips, you may kindly raise your hand so that we have assistants standing around, they could come and help you out with the slip of paper pen whatever is required, so that it can be passed on down the sides of the stage to me, so we can carry on as a secondary process later on. Maybe have the next question from the sister on the top please. A Salaam Alaikum. My name is Shanna. I would like I would like to ask what is permitted in Islam? And that is what is a man love to marry more than one wife.

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

The question

00:11:54--> 00:12:05

Why is polygamy Islam? That is, why is the man allowed to marry more than one life Islam? The polygamy actually means that

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

a person who has more than one spouse

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

is divided into two categories

00:12:14--> 00:12:18

in which a man has more than one wife and polyandry.

00:12:20--> 00:12:25

A woman has got more than one husband. People normally think quality remains among

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

more than one voice quality

00:12:30--> 00:12:50

a person having more than one spouse. If a man has more than one wife, it's called polygyny. And if a woman has more than one husband to stop polyandry, but since the system is mainly the question, why is a man allowed to marry more than one life? I will answer why is polygyny allowed Islam

00:12:52--> 00:12:58

appears to be the only reason on the face of the earth, which is not the only one.

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

There is no religion. On the face of the earth, we say.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

Read the Gita you read the VEDA.

00:13:07--> 00:13:12

Read the Bible. As it mentioned, not only one it's only mentioned the Koran.

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

In fact, if you read the Hindu scriptures,

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

most of the most have a real life

00:13:22--> 00:13:22

in

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

real life.

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

If you read the Jewish scriptures,

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

the Jewish law allows polygyny

00:13:37--> 00:13:44

itself only in the 11th century, when drama God Shawn Ben Yehuda, he passed

00:13:45--> 00:14:00

and said, polygyny should not be allowed students affected by the satanic Jewish community in the Muslim countries until the 1950s, the Chief Rabbi of Israel put a ban on it.

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

The Christian Bible allows polygyny only a couple of days ago, the church put a ban on it.

00:14:11--> 00:14:15

Even if you analyze the legal aspects of India,

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

the Indian law allows us

00:14:20--> 00:14:31

to have more than one life. It was only in 1974 when the Hindu Marriage Act was passed, and if I'm wrong, correct me.

00:14:33--> 00:14:41

Marriage Act was passed in 1954, which puts a ban on the Hindu man to marry more than one wife.

00:14:44--> 00:14:44

If you see that,

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

according to a committee report on the status of women in Islam, which was published in 1935, on page number 56, as

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

the percentage

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

of polygamous marriages and it says

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

The percentage in which

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

this college is measured, it was 5.06.

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

And the percentage

00:15:12--> 00:15:16

quality with marriage it was only point three one.

00:15:18--> 00:15:24

Let's leave the country aside. Let's come to the main point. Why does Islam allow polygamy

00:15:27--> 00:15:33

Iran is the only region on the face of the earth, which saves money on demand.

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

mentioned

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

chapter number four, number

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

four choice in foods.

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

But it's

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

not the only one.

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

The statement, only one is only during the brand. It's not that in any other

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

through some canadia men

00:16:01--> 00:16:07

some people are hundreds of Islam such an upper limit topology maximum.

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

And you can have more than one life only on the condition that you can do, it will just as between the two

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

or between the three or otherwise, only one. And the same for

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

job number two,

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

that it is very difficult for a man to materialize.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

So polygamy is an exception. That is not the rule.

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

Many people think

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

that Islam

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

should come to

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

more than one life

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

of do's and don'ts in Islam.

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

The second category is recommended or encouraged. The third category is the famous category, the first category

00:17:00--> 00:17:03

and the last is permitted or forbidden

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

promise any falls in the medical degree.

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

There is no statement

00:17:13--> 00:17:16

that if a man married more than one bite is a better Muslim than

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

less and less medically.

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

By the Islam allow a man to marry more than men, white

00:17:34--> 00:17:39

men and women are born, male and female are born in equal proportion.

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

But medical science tells us that

00:17:46--> 00:17:46

the fetus

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

is no stronger than the messages.

00:17:53--> 00:18:06

feature the knowledge tells us that a female child has got more interesting than the male side. A few male child can fight germs and disease much more stronger and a better way than the military.

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

Medical science tells us that the two nails

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

are stronger

00:18:13--> 00:18:13

than the men.

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

In the pediatric age.

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

The female ratio is higher than the male ratio

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

in the world, and doing more male than the female,

00:18:37--> 00:18:46

which is present time approximately more than one and a half million people or martial arts of which most of them were men.

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

That accidents take place.

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

More of the men die in accidents than the female

00:19:02--> 00:19:02

females that

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

are female in the world as compared to the middle

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

of the countries besides a few Asian countries and Africa in which the female population is more than the male population.

00:19:24--> 00:19:31

I've given you because more than 1 million fetuses are female fetuses are being aborted every year.

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

Because the high rates of infanticide, female infanticide. That's the reason that females are less

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

than otherwise, you sub diseases and within a few decades, that the male population

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

will become much less than the female population.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

In New York alone, there are 1 million females more than males and Jewish alone.

00:20:01--> 00:20:01

There's more than

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

an out of

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

the middle population of real.

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

That means they can

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

find female partners.

00:20:14--> 00:20:17

And there are more than 25 million gays in America.

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

In Britain alone, there are more than more than

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

in Germany alone

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

in Russia, the Russian military more than me.

00:20:34--> 00:20:39

And God knows how many million t minutes are there more than a minute in

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

Microsoft Office live in America.

00:20:47--> 00:20:51

And suppose the market is saturated. Every month, I found a senior partner

00:20:55--> 00:21:08

in touch 20 million females in USA alone, who will not be able to find husbands. And suppose my sister was living in America happens to be among the unfortunate ladies who has not found a partner yet.

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

The only option remains

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

she married her husband, she marries a man

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

or she becomes public property.

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

And believe me the question to hundreds of non Muslims and everyone

00:21:30--> 00:21:37

no one has offered for this section. But there are some people who are smarter than you that are prefer my sister many.

00:21:40--> 00:21:46

Believe me, medical science tells us that a man or a woman cannot remain a virgin.

00:21:50--> 00:22:07

She cannot remain a virgin for life without indulging in unnecessary or sexual perversions. Because sex hormones are being debated in the body. And those great men who claim to have renounced the world, for example, the Asian the trans mountain and malleus.

00:22:08--> 00:22:08

You find

00:22:21--> 00:22:27

the priests and the nuns of the Church of England, the majority indulge in fornication and homosexuality.

00:22:28--> 00:22:35

There is an option during the option is that you marry husband or wife or become public property.

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

in continuation and continuation of the question,

00:22:42--> 00:22:56

we have got a question on the slip. Can you enumerate the various conditions in which polygamy is permitted? This constitutes Amina Can you numerate the various conditions in which polygamy is permitted?

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

The various conditions in which polygyny is permitted. The only condition

00:23:10--> 00:23:19

which allows a man to marry more than one wife is that she should do justice between the two life decision or justice between the two

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

is allowed

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

to take more than one wife, if you can't do justice

00:23:27--> 00:23:32

should suffice with only one life. But the thermal conditions in which it is not advisable

00:23:33--> 00:23:36

for a man to take more than one wife.

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

One of the examples I give is because

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

the circle of human which

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

Islam has an ontology needs

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

to protect the monastery of the human

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

condition. For example,

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

suppose a young lady, she gets married,

00:24:03--> 00:24:15

maybe approximately a few months of marriage. She has an accident and ticket handicap and she cannot satisfy the husband. The only option for the husband

00:24:22--> 00:24:23

and the wife,

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

the first wife are married and your wife.

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

I'm telling you

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

Which you prefer? Would you prefer

00:24:37--> 00:24:42

only option

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

either divorces the first wife and takes another wife if you want
