Sarah. Welcome everyone to another class on the 40 Noah week and today we're looking at Hadith number three, the hadith of Abu Abdullah man.
The author says an Imam and no Allah He says an AVI Abdur Rahman Abdullah hibino Marathi Allahu taala and
Paul sinner to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Jaco booni and Islam or Allah Hamsun Jihad at the Allah. Allah wa now Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu eata is a cat to Hegel, Beatty or Samia Ramadan, the very famous Hadith that all of us know since we were children, the hadith of Abdullah hibben Omar Ibn Al Khattab radi Allahu Allah. And now Abdullah having Rama is one of those unique Sahaba, who was known as the for a bad deal.
Among the Sahaba were these four specific Abdullah laws with an S at the end, who are known as the four about data. Who are they and why were they called this? Well, one of them was Abdullah hidden or model hubub. And one of them was Abdullah had been a bass. Another one was Abdullah, even zubaid. And the last one was Abdullah hibben. I'm not even an OS. Now, I've thought about the law, of course, is the plural of Abdullah right. Now, how come we don't have a very, very famous name in there. If you think of Abdullah immediately, we should think of also even Massoud Abdullah had been Mr. rude. And just like that other names as well. But we find that within these four The only list
Abdullah bin Abdullah having Omar Abdullah having this debate and Abdullah Ibn Abbas, the reason for that is because these four were from the younger Sahaba. And they lived for a relatively long period, meaning because they were young they lived on afterwards, more and naturally, since they outlive the older generation of those habit, there was more need towards their aim. And they became known as the four major about the law, the fuqaha from the amongst us Harbor, and they were all very knowledgeable. Even my boss, of course, he's the dungeon master put on Abdullah, he is one of the greatest fuqaha from the Sahaba and even zubaid.
Again, he's one of the famous companions of the Prophet Adil Salatu. Salam Abdullah, and I'm gonna be honest, he was known for Hadeeth as well. So these were the other dinner.
And the Hadith. In the Hadith, he says, I heard the prophets of Salaam in heavy sciences, they say when a narrator says I heard that's one of the strongest ways to narrate a Hadeeth. Why? Because he's telling you he's definitely heard it as opposed to, on the authority of because when they do on the authority of there's a possibility he heard it, or he heard it from someone who heard it, right. But when he says, I heard it, this means he clearly directly heard from the prophets of Allah while he was setting them, especially among the Sahaba. By the way, when you hear I heard that matters very much, why is that? Because the Sahaba, they're all reducing, they're all considered upright in
terms of their narration. So at times, they may not have heard something directly from the Prophet.
But because everyone knows of their righteousness and their uprightness, they can simply say, The Prophet said, and everybody knows, they will be telling the truth, and who they have normally heard of heard from another Sahabi, who heard directly from the profits, etc. So we have nothing to worry about there. So, in the cases where you hear clearly that I heard this, you know, this shows you that that this Sahabi was actually their president at that moment. It's not like he heard from his father or from another companion, etc. So there is that little benefit in there even though if he didn't say this doesn't mean we would ever reject the Hadith I was so happy because it's so heavy is
so heavy, and that means that they are completely upright and that Allah is pleased with them, and they were pleased with what Allah had decreed for them. So the idea
the Hadith goes boonie al Islam, Allah humps, Islam, was made upon five things.
Now, all of you know these five things. These are the five pillars of Islam.
The first of those pillars is bearing witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His Messenger. This was actually found in the previous study through studied as well, right. So, the second one is establishing the prayer giving yours at that performing hajj and also fasting the month of Ramadan. Now, some people, they actually say, Islam doesn't have five pillars that has six pillars.
So to the sixth one, they end up adding, and they say, the sixth one is actually jihad.
And this particular opinion, to be honest, it's not a strong opinion. The reason why it's not a strong opinion is because in the Hadith of the hottie as well, a man came to me.
And he said that Oh, man, what he's talking to Abdullah.
Man, he says, oh, man, what leads you to making Hajj every year and making arrma every year and you don't go in for the sake of jihad
in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And you know, that Allah, Allah, His Messenger had encouraged us. So he said, Oh, son of my brother, he's a very, it's a polite way of speaking to a person. He said, You have been a fee.
Oh, son of my brother. Islam has been founded on five things, believing in Allah and His Messenger,
and praying five daily prayers,
fasting the month of Ramadan, giving the Zakat and doing the Hajj.
And in another variation of this very tradition, he said, I don't do so because I heard from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And then he narrated this hadith that is before you. So this means he's saying that jihad is not the sixth pillar of Islam as opposed to how some people, they end up adding this particular concept as a pillar of Islam. Okay, that doesn't mean that there's no concept of jihad within Islam, or what even that means what the idea of struggling in the path of a lot means. That's a different discussion for another time, which will happen within our class as well. But simply to clarify that this concept that this is a sixth pillar, this is not a correct
concept. It is corrected by the man himself by the narrator of the Hadith himself, if not all, the Allahu Allah. And
another very important thing to mention within this particular Hadith is that the person who leaves any of these five pillars
is not considered a cafard with the exception for the of the first one. Okay, so if a person is not praying or not giving a god or not making Hajj or not fasting, that doesn't mean they've left the fold of Islam. Unless, of course, they they deny them, that's a different story. Denial is different than, say, a person that Ramadan time is here, he doesn't fast or she doesn't fast, because they don't like getting hungry. Okay. But they believe themselves to be sinful person has left the fold of Islam, someone has money, but they don't go for Hajj.
They're going to be questioned by Allah as origin for this. But are they going to be such that they are out of the fold of Islam? No, definitely not. Someone has money and they have to give the cat they don't give their cat? Are they going to be sinful? Of course they're going to be sinful. Are they breaching their trust with Allah? Of course they're doing that. Are they not fulfilling their duties? Of course they're not. But are they out of the fold of Islam? And also, of course, they're not what about Salah if someone leaves the Salah. Now, in Salah we have a hadith and some Hadith which says which say that the covenant between us and them, don't let the brain and our VEDA home
for that Formentera to have a pedicure from whoever leaves Salah, then that person has become a disbeliever.
Okay, now, this hadith is quoted by many people. And then based on this Hadith, they say that the person who leaves prayer becomes a disbeliever within Islam.
Now they have insha, Allah, they have righteous intentions for saying this. And I've spoken to some of scholars, the scholars who believe this idea, and some of them they say, look, even if theoretically, we can say that, theologically, it's better to believe that these people are not ghafar just as a mechanism of encouraging people we should say this and I say Subhanallah maybe you will be discouraging people away from Islam by saying such a thing. Why? Because someone might completely be completely feel that their disparity might get to a degree where they'll say, Well, I'm already covered. What's the point of me doing anything?
Anyways about Islam right.
So now how do we understand this hadith? And how do we understand it within the light of the general?
Other Abdullah as well? Okay. So let me explain it Firstly, according to the overwhelming majority of the scholars of the oma and what I mean by that is the Hanafi, the molokhia, the Shafi area and also the majority of the hubiera. This Hadith does not mean that the person is actually a real Kaffir is left the fold of Islam. They say that this hadith means it's a form of trying to cast fear within the person by the prophet alayhi salatu salam, or it's referring to a weaker form of Kufa which is not really disbelief, which is not which doesn't take a person out of the fold of Islam. Okay, this is the opinion of the overwhelming majority of the scholars.
Secondly, we have other proofs which show us that people who leave Salah may actually be entered into Jannah
This doesn't mean you leave Salah, thinking you'll go to Jenna but there will be some people who haven't prayed and they will still go to john How do we know this? There's a hadith also in the sohae books of Hadith, along Hadith in which the people of Judah will speak to Allah subhana wa tada and they will say to Allah, Oh Allah our brothers used to pray with us. They used to do this with us, they used to do that with us, you enter them into hellfire. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will say take them out and enter them into agenda, then they will go one step less they used to do this, that the other but one step less, then they will go one step less as well. Then they will go to
they will go to our brothers used to pray with us alone, nothing else. So now when Allah says take these people who used to pray out of Hellfire and put them into Jannah now no one is left in Hellfire who used to pray. After that Allah will do his own Jaffa, Allah will do his own intercession and he will say anyone who has a an atom's weight of belief within their heart, take them out of Hellfire and put them into Jenna, who's in Hellfire right now. Definitely not people who used to pray.
So we have people who didn't used to pray, and they're going to Jenna. So where they could fall?
They were not. Otherwise they wouldn't get to go to Geneva. So based on this Hadeeth the and other proofs, this is one proof I'm sharing with you. And other proofs. The overwhelming majority of the oma says that the people who don't pray doesn't mean they're gonna fall even though this hadith appears to be that way. But I think it's unfair to quote this hadith willy nilly without explaining every angle of the of the Hadith and then confusing people. Okay, that's the
that's one thing. The other thing is that we said that there are some hanabi, Allah Subhana, Allah, who do believe that actually, this hadith should be understood as Cofer itself, meaning that the person is truly a Kaffir.
Now, we know that some of the very early hanabi that such as even Obama himself was some of the early scholars such as even Obama himself. They said that this particular rewire is not authentically reported to the to Mr. Mohammed, whether it is or not, that's a discussion for the habila to have on their own. What's important is that even though Kodama Rahim Allah, he mentioned and he's one of the greatest authorities of the high Nabila, and he doesn't believe this, by the way, he actually believes that the better opinion is that he mount Bahama didn't used to say this, Mr. Muhammad used to agree with the majority of the scholars that the person is not a disbeliever
okay. But he says that the reason is, because we have the consensus. Even Kodama says it And normally, the reason is that we have the consensus of the Muslims that
that in every single generation in every single era,
no one who left their prayers would ever be a person who they wouldn't prey on. Okay?
or wash their bodies, or bury them within the Muslim graveyards or stop anyone from inheriting from them, or stop anyone from inheriting the other way from them. Or dividing between the husband and the wife because of this. We don't have any reports of it throughout the generations of Islam. Okay.
So this means what does this mean? This means that, even though theoretically there may have been a desert, different opinion or differences of opinion, practically speaking, even saying that the practical implication of someone who doesn't pray becoming a Kaffir and leaving Islam, the practical implication
Have that were never applied people who didn't pray there and even till today we see this as well. They're buried in Muslim graveyards, they are, they are
also washed. They are people pray on them and no one ever says don't pray on them. Nobody ever no court no Muslim court ever decides to cancel the weddings as well. I heard from some shake once that, you know what?
If your husband addressing an audience, if your husband doesn't pray, then your nigga has bought them even without my saying there is an age map that this didn't used to occur, okay. There's a consensus that this didn't used to occur. So we say that the velocity or the summary of everything is that the overwhelming majority of scholars don't believe this is disbelief, but they do believe that it is a major sin. It is a serious thing, because the first thing that you will be asked about on the Day of Judgment is your prayer. Okay, this will be something that every single Muslim will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment. And the people who will go to the Hellfire when it's said
masala confused about what led you to the Hellfire? They will say Paul alumna Coleman and mousseline. Well, I'm Nicola Miskin, they will say the reason why we went to the Hellfire is because we didn't use to pray. And we didn't use to give sadaqa as well and we didn't give used to give obligatory charity as well. So a person who doesn't pray isn't a very, very dangerous zone, without a doubt, but they still remain within the fold of Islam.
And I asked Allah Subhana Allah to guide us to pray because this prayer Allah subhana wa tada hasn't legislated this prayer for us because it's actually hardship
mountains, or analytische we did not reveal the Quran upon you so that you may go through hardship Allah did it because it's ease. When you praise Allah you feel a connection with Allah subhana wa salam, the word itself has within it the concept of Silla connection. So when you pray Salah, you will be connected to a lot of it when your heart will feel connected, you will feel more psychologically at rest, you'll feel more peaceful, all of those things will be there. You know, sometimes people come to me and they say, I'm having psychological problems. And I feel this and I don't want to practice the religion and ask them are you praying? And no, but I tried. I said, Are
you praying? If they're not praying Subhanallah you find if they end up adopting prayer, many of them they end up actually forgetting all of these problems and they get solved for them. So prayer is a very powerful mechanism that Allah has not given us as a form of subjecting us to some extra worship, but as a form of us being closer to Allah and being within that divine connection which will uplift us in our morale. I ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to grant us the ability to pray and I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to have devotion for Allah publicity when Jenna so Islam is founded then upon five pillars, these five pillars are the Shahada, Dane, the Salah,
granting Zakat, or giving yours ECOWAS as well. And we know that go on to have a scam right? that there needs to be a threshold complete year has to have gone by, and many other camps similarly hedge hedge
and by the way, Irma is also an obligation as well.
Not only hedge Irma is also an obligation because Allah Subhana Allah said, we're at the moon had Joe and Irma Telenor
perform hajj and Irma for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And because of that, many of the scholars they said that Hajj and Umrah are both obligations. While so when we are on our bond and fasting the month of Ramadan.
So this is the hadith of Abdullah ibn
