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

Okay, this is one hour hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hamdu lillahi Hamden UF in Emma who you care for OMA Zita are some Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad didn't want an early he was up here Jemaine Allah who live nama in pharaoh now on phantom limb tena Was it an 11 year Korean rubbish rally Saudi was totally empty. What are the 10 Melissa any of Coco coli visit in year 11 Or visit near 11 or visit near Alma Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola my Doctor Who salah or entity general Husna either shake the Salah, now we're on Hadith number 11 It says MA We are the Allah Allahu Allah, Allah and Samia to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Maya Cole.

00:00:44--> 00:00:48

May you read the letter who will be he Hiren you factor who 15

00:00:50--> 00:00:57

Whoever Allah wishes good for or if Allah wants to do good for someone or wants good for someone.

00:00:58--> 00:01:27

Allah azza wa jal gives him the understanding within the religion. So whenever you see that Allah Subhana Allah Allah has granted the understanding of the religion for someone to someone, that's a sign that Allah has wished something good for this human being. If Allah subhanaw taala true chooses you to be among the people who attend the gathering of knowledge like this one right here. This is a sign that Allah subhanaw taala has wished something good for you.

00:01:28--> 00:02:12

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he continued and he said, we're in a car Simone Wallah who you're ugly, and I am simply a distributor. This is the words of the Prophet I, actually that's one of the names of the Prophet as well. I am simply a distributor meaning I just distribute this knowledge in terms of the distribution of the knowledge, as Allah's Prophet calls it the Qasim or the FISMA, the prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he did the same for everyone. Any person that would come to the Prophet SAW Salem, the prophet would give that person knowledge you wouldn't hold back. So he's asked him in this way, however, there were some Sahaba, who Allah would give more

00:02:12--> 00:02:54

understanding to many companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam equally attended the gatherings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But some people would understand more so than other people. This was a grant from Allah and that's why the Prophet continued, and he said, Well, Allahu europei, but at the end of the day, it is Allah subhanho wa taala. Who gives? In nama Anika Simone wala who you're the I am just a distributor, but it is Allah azza wa jal who grants that deep understanding of the religion and that's why we go back to the first part of the Hadith. The Prophet says, Allah missing, whoever Allah wishes good for, he grants him the understanding of the religion.

00:02:55--> 00:03:34

You see the connection there, that if Allah wishes good, he will give you understanding of the religion, the prophets of psyllium is doing his task. He's taking the information that Allah is giving him the way in Revelation that Allah is giving him and he's passing it on to people, people are going to have different levels of understandings. Because this is, these are sacred passages, there is a way of understanding this. If it was simply to be read and automatically understood, then there would be no reason for the prophets of salaam to make dua for some Sahaba like ignore Abbas, or Allah, grant him the wisdom and also the understanding of the book as well. Because there's an

00:03:34--> 00:04:17

understanding aspect that comes from Allah azza wa jal, Allahu, you're ugly and Allah sees in this the heart of every single person, because sometimes, if a person is given understanding in the religion, there is a possibility the person might begin to become arrogant, and Allah is trying to save him from the arrogance. If a person has been given an understanding of the religion, there is a possibility at some point that may lead to misguidance as well maybe he can reinterpret the passage in a way where Allah subhanaw taala never intended it, but he has all the tools or she has all the tools. So Allah azza wa jal decides where to put this understanding well into Zaha Hadid, uma and

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

this OMA will continue to be called Emmet and Allah amarilla it will continue to be fulfilling Allah's commandment. Now, this is a part of the Hadith, which is in many other a hadith as well. And it's talking about a group of people who are selected by Allah to continue on soldiering in the path of truth. Okay, and I'll get to that in a minute. But what I really want to point out over here is it's not talking about the entirety of the Ummah, okay, because in other reports of variants of this report, and we always have to go to different variants to understand a hadith. In order for you to understand the Hadith some of the stuff they used to say we would never

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

claim that we've understood a hadith until we read it from 30 different variations. So, another variant of this hadith says that there will be a group of people who will continue to fulfill the truth not the entirety of the ummah. Okay, so this hadith is then referring back to this concept of Pa iffa l mn surah. The group of people who have been aided by Allah subhanaw taala. In this hadith, it appears that the Prophet is saying the group of people who have been aided by Allah azza wa jal is a group of people who have been granted knowledge and this is the opinion of Imam Al Bukhari and others. But

00:05:40--> 00:06:17

in other variants, it refers to other aspects of the religion, I'll get to it in a minute, I Marilla, la yoga room and holophone. Anyone who harms these people or anyone who opposes these people, that person will not actually be harming them in any which way, had the Amarula until the matter of Allah subhanaw taala or the decree of Allah or Buddha is that the will general comes. Now, let's take a deeper look. In terms of ABA, iffa almanzora, the group of people who have been aided by Allah

00:06:19--> 00:06:53

there are a number of variations, one of them says that these this is a thought if I'm an almighty, VA harina Allah, they will always be upon the truth. So this is simply just saying they will be on the truth, what is the truth, all of that is not denoted here. And another one says that they will be battling in the cause of truth. All right. And the last of them will be one who will fight lmsc had the judge himself, okay, the the Antichrist or the deceitful Messiah.

00:06:54--> 00:07:10

So then we have three different things going on here. One of them is just people on truth and other one people on truth that happened to be people of knowledge and other group of people who are protecting the truth and fighting in the cause of truth as well.

00:07:11--> 00:07:54

And that's why mmm no over your haimo Allah, he said that it's completely understandable that this group who will be on the truth is not one type of people. It could be a group of various types of people. So it could be people who are fighting in the cause of truth, it could be scholars, and for what we're teaching the Muslims it could be people who are Hadith in who are granting the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because some of the scholars they said, Al Hadith, the people of Hadith, so he said it could be more Hadith in as well. It could be simultaneously people who are ascetic Zohan, it could be people who are commanding good and forbidding evil. And he's

00:07:54--> 00:08:38

saying that it could be all of these groups because remember, when it comes to goodness, there are many avenues of good it's not just one avenue. Knowledge is not the only avenue protecting Muslims is not the only avenue giving. Preserving the Hadith of the Prophet is not the only avenue being a righteous Muslim, to uphold righteousness within the Ummah, that's not the only avenue, commanding good, forbidding evil, all of these are collectively different avenues. One person cannot do all of these things. Right? So anyone who's doing anything good, would be Allahu Alem part of this group this is what an Imam and Noah we said and I believe that this is a good opinion in sha Allah.

00:08:40--> 00:09:25

So that means that the say the the group of people who have been aided by Allah, it depends. Different people are aided by Allah in different ways. Okay, similar to the concept of the Magette did as well the person who is the reviver in every century even they're some of the scholars they said Because men in the La Jolla, but I thought a lot of sequel me it Senate in men ujet did Willa Dena Allah azza wa jal sends at the beginning of every 100 years, who a person who revives the faith for the people. So some said that the word man is general, it could be that there's multiple people in multiple different fronts, reviving the deen for the people in different ways. Some of that may

00:09:25--> 00:09:29

be politically some of that may be knowledge wise, some of that may be

00:09:30--> 00:09:53

you know, in terms of giving Dawa to non Muslims, it could be in different ways. That's the idea. So that revival and this they're kind of correlated in that there are many fronts, in which Allah subhanaw taala can use a person and Allah subhanaw taala can make a person a source of faith in sha Allah. Now there is another very important point in this hadith, and that is that

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, In nama Anika Simone I

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

and just a distributor Wallah who you're Authy. Allah is the One who gives. So Allah will always create goodness, he will always make goodness happen. But then for that goodness he will choose people.

00:10:18--> 00:10:59

Because the Prophet is chosen by Allah to spread that goodness at the end of the day, that goodness is revelation from Allah, Allah could inspire the hearts of every person to automatically know the truth, if he so pleased, it's completely possible. But no, Allah chose the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for this act of goodness, Allah chose the Abu Bakr to be the Caliph, who will do all of the good heated aroma to be that Caliph who will do all of the good he did, and so forth. So Allah chooses people in different ways. And that's why you have to ask Allah as well, that Oh ALLAH choose me for the goodness, choose me and allow me to do that goodness. Because when Allah

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

gives you tofield, that means Allah has

00:11:02--> 00:11:06

created within you the ability to do the hire.

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

Another one of the things to remember is that

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

from this UCLA, if almanzora, the aidid people,

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

what we can take here is that,

00:11:25--> 00:11:44

that they're always on the winning end. Okay, they're always on the winning end. The idea is, they are always on the good side. And it's not always that the good side wins. And I say this because sometimes the good side does not win.

00:11:45--> 00:12:13

And this happens and people because of this, they ended up losing faith. They will look at the Quran. The Quran says Allah will aid the Muslims, Allah will do this, Allah will all of the ayat related to aiding. But then you see on in reality, there are so many countries that are Muslim countries, which went through wars, and they've been completely destroyed and dismantled. And then you have people they say, Well, you know, what, what about all of these verses which talk about Allah ating? Okay.

00:12:14--> 00:12:26

Firstly, some of the Hadith, they allude to the fact that, that these verses promising specifically one verse, and others as well, that aid might be on the Day of Judgment.

00:12:27--> 00:12:42

This doesn't mean there's also aid in the in this world as well. But the idea is for Allah's aid to come, then there has to be conditions for that aid to come as well. Not every person or every group will be aided.

00:12:43--> 00:13:29

Not every group of Muslims that say we're going to try to resolve this conflict over here in this region, they're naturally going to be aided No, because there are conditions and there are circumstances, these conditions are also within the Quran as well. One of them for example, Allah subhanaw taala says, what can happen Elena, nurse will move meaning it is our duty to help the believers. So when a group doesn't get ated, they have to question themselves, how perfected were we in our belief, this is very, very important that when these promises in the Quran, you know, they're mentioned, they shouldn't be taken as every single time, there is a conflict, Muslims are going to

00:13:29--> 00:13:59

be the winners. I say this because in Syria, a group of people not even on groups heeds of people, they basically lost faith after everything came crashing down in their faces, many people why? Because all of these are Hadith related to and many of them happen to be weak as well. Right? All of these Hadith related to the aiding of the people of a sham were quoted all across the world. Okay.

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

And

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

what happened, when the battle didn't go the way it was planned, some people literally said, If this doesn't work, we're going to leave Islam.

00:14:12--> 00:14:57

So we have to understand these holistically, more deeply. There are conditions that Allah has placed for believers to be victorious. One of those is deep rooted faith. There are people who were involved in these battles were at the simultaneously drinking and partying, right? People who are very, very far away from their faith as well, just yesterday, they were in clubbing into and the day after that they went overseas to, you know, become victorious. Who are we kidding? And that's why if we take a holistic approach to Islam, when we look at every single verse together, without taking things out of context, then we begin to really understand so this thought if, among Surah, doesn't

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

always have to be on the winning side. That's

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

The point in all this, the point is they're on the truth. They don't always have to be on the winning side. And that's why the Prophet SAW Selim continued and he said, lie y'all don't room men Carla film, the person who goes against them is not going to harm them. The scholars of Hadith, they differed about what that means. They said some of them they said, that means that their reward is already

00:15:23--> 00:16:06

the reward is already established by Allah subhanaw taala. So they then being opposed is not going to take away from the reward that Allah subhanaw taala has established for them. And last but not least, every group basically makes the claim that they themselves are a thought if a tournament Surah we are that sect which is basically been aided by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or by Allah azza wa jal. So we say that there are specific qualities the Prophet mentioned about this group. And this is very closely correlated also with the Hadith of the Ummah being divided into 73 sects. And one of those qualities is that they follow what Allah's Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:16:06--> 00:16:49

sallam had given to the people and they follow whatever the companions were on. Now, sometimes there are people who are going to interpret what the prophet had to say and what the Sahaba had to say in different ways. And that's why we go back to another more clear Hadith, and that is that the prophets I seldom said in Medina De Lima, Muhammad, he said, La Condesa the album stick to the greater majority of the Muslims. So whatever direction that the greater majority of the of the Muslims know what that means is, the greater majority of the scholarly class among the Muslims are taking, that would be insha Allah with Allah, the direction of the safe sector, Allahu Allah, by

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

now.

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

Hadith number 12

00:16:54--> 00:17:15

and USMA on the authority of Esma, or the Allah Allah on her, and Olivia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Hamid Allah, what ethna Elisa makan, Asma bint Abu Bakr, she said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam praised Allah, and he praised Allah subhanaw taala and glorified him as well.

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

thermocol then he said Merriman, che in LEM Hakuna UI to who Ihlara a to hoof him upon me however,

00:17:24--> 00:18:14

in this very position of mine, I have seen everything that I had never seen before. So everything that the prophet had not been shown. He's saying over here, it's a bit exaggerated, that I had seen everything I'd never seen before. Hetal Jana will not even Janna and now even paradise and hellfire I was shown by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for all here in a year under come to faith and only if you have already come and Allah azza wa jal revealed to me that you will be tested in your graves, Miss La, l Allah Kariba bye Caribbean mean fits naturally Messi had the gel like or something very close to how the Pfitzner of lmsc had the gel will be okay. You will be tested in your grave, similar to how you

00:18:14--> 00:18:23

will people will be tested at the time of the deceitful Christ have often at the time of the deceased deceitful Messiah or the Antichrist. Right

00:18:25--> 00:19:12

now, the narrator says that law degree aka their Lika call it Esma I don't know which one of these two words USMA bint Abi Becker used who said that Fatima Vinton wounded who reported from a Smeb interview because she said that, I don't know which one of these two words a smart used and this is to tell you that the narrator's of the Hadith, they were very, very careful. Okay, not all of them depending on the narrator, right? Some of the narrator's were very keen and very careful. This is one example. How so? Well, she's using a word here, both of them mean approximately the same thing. But she's like, I can't recall exactly which word is not used. You understand?

00:19:14--> 00:19:53

There's a couple of factors in here. One of them is that the narrators of Hadith were very, very keen, largely speaking. Number two, because there's a human factor in all of this. Sometimes they would replace words as well. For other words, generally, the scholars of Hadith, they believe it's okay for you to swap words in a hadith, especially if you are from the people of knowledge, who understand Arabic and also understand what they're narrating right. Because the idea is what the Prophet said, as in the content, the concept, not the exact wording, okay.

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

Now, you call Merville mocha because it will be set

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

You in the grave? What do you know about this man? The M male men, l l Mukhin. A three B A ye Hema call it a smile again, Fatima is unsure which word she used which word a smile used. But again, they both mean very similar. She's just trying to be extra cognizant. She doesn't want to attribute something default to a smile, and hence to the prophets of Salem. Even if the word is a sin them. She wants to be very, very careful. So she says that as for the believer, or the person who's certainly faithful, I'm not sure which one a smart said he will say, Who am Mohammad Rasool Allah, this is Mohammed, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Jana will begin at he came to

00:20:47--> 00:21:24

us with clear signs and guidance for a job now with Ivana we, we responded to him and we also follow them who are Mohamed done. And then he will say this, this is in fact, Mohammed 123 times. Now what happened three times, some of the scholars they said that he will say Who am Mohammed and three times he is Mohammed three times. Others, they said no, the entire questioning took place three times. So these angels are actually trying to become more and more uncertain of whether this guy really believes or he's just saying the first thing that came to his mind, right?

00:21:26--> 00:22:10

Anyways, let's say he said who are Muhammad and three times that means he's very confident. Let's say he was asked three times and he responded three times, that also means he's very confident. So this is a person who's a believer he has confident confidence in the fact that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a messenger from Allah. Allah is that he will Joanne for your call them Saleh and then it will be set to him rest in peace, okay, sleep in peace but really means Rest in peace, or the alumna in controller Mukhin and B. We know now that you're definitely certain of this reality, what a millionaire. Well, I will Mahtab as for the hypocrites, or the one who is doubtful,

00:22:10--> 00:22:57

so that means that doubt is not acceptable, okay? Doubt is also rejected. We have to be certain of the reality that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is, in fact, the Messenger of Allah. You can't have doubts around this, this is a matter of belief, this is a creedal matter. We have to have belief in this absolute belief. And if you don't, then you have to get the knowledge that's required in order for you to have that certainty. So this person, the believer, he will be completely certain ask for them. When asked if the hypocrite or he said, or a smart said Molotov or the doubtful one. This means Fatima, who is a head data, she is understanding that someone who's doubtful his faith is

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

not considered acceptable. Right?

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

Again, she's unsure whether whether a smart said when I feel tab a hypocrite or doubtful for your call, he will say law degree. I don't know. I heard the people saying something. And I said exactly the same as well. Now this is the Hadith related to questioning in the grave. There's a lot going on this in this number one, the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam starts off telling this hadith with what the first thing he does is he praises Allah and He glorifies Allah. And this is among the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet used to teach the people even to do this, you would teach them to praise Allah, and glorify Him before saying something that's very

00:23:43--> 00:23:52

important. This is something the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would do. Number two, the Prophet and this is a question was the prophet literally shown everything?

00:23:54--> 00:24:32

As the Hadith says, ma'am, in treating them equally to Allah, Allah to female caminhada Ihlara to female caminhada was the prophet literally shown every single thing? The word has the possibility of both meanings, but the reality is that that's not the case. The reality is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is using exaggerated terminology which is very common within the Arabic language, right mubadala. It's something that's very common within Arabic rhetoric. He doesn't literally mean everything. Because the what the Prophet was shown was whatever he needed to tell

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

the people or whatever knowledge Allah wanted to reveal to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't have knowledge of every aspect of the unseen world. There are some people who have this belief, but it's not an accurate belief. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has knowledge of the Unseen within capacity. Okay, he knows more than the average person

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

And because notice, the Prophet is saying, there's not a single thing that I have not seen, except that I saw it right now. Now what did the Prophet tell of that one thing?

00:25:12--> 00:25:16

That means he must have thought, at least he must have seen a lot of things, right?

00:25:18--> 00:26:01

Not everything, but at least a lot of things. And these type of words, they came out of the mouth of the prophet in more than one occasion. Right? So that means he must have had access to some aspect of the unseen that he didn't share with the rest of the world. But it doesn't mean he has absolute knowledge of the Unseen because Allah tells us in the Quran, that Allah Allah moment for summer what in Earth will l Riba in the law that say that the absolute unseen is not known within the heavens and the earth, except to Allah Allah azza wa jal? So this is very, very important. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not have knowledge of the Unseen. Absolutely. Does he know aspects

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

of the unseen that mean you don't, of course, undoubtedly.

00:26:05--> 00:26:44

So he would be given the knowledge that he needed to give out to people or whatever else Allah subhanaw taala chose to show the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, as well, but not every aspect of the unseen world. In fact, the prophets of Allah who it was said, Let me set in a hadith in Behati, as well, that the keys of the unseen are five, none of these are known except to Allah subhanaw taala. Then Allah is Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he recited the verse in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala says in Allah in the holy Musa, where you will need zero faith where Allah, Allah, Allah is the One who has the knowledge of when the Day of Judgment will happen.

00:26:44--> 00:27:28

And he is the one who reveals the or he's the one who sends down the rain as well. Well, yeah, alarm will mafia or harm, and he knows the reality of what is within the wombs, not male or female, because that might be figured out. But the reality of this person, whether he will be a good person evil, when will he live, whether he will die, whether he will even come out alive, all of these realities are not known to doctors, right? So this is the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah continued, and he says that Allah also has knowledge of what each soul will earn mad taxi Bovada were martyred enough to be a part of intermode and not and no soul has the knowledge of where

00:27:28--> 00:28:07

it will die as well. So these five things are known to no one but Allah subhanho wa Taala Okay, these are the keys of the unseen world. These are the main factors of the unseen, which the Prophet doesn't have knowledge of as well. Yes, he knows a little bit, meaning he knows sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the signs and he shared many of them with us. Perhaps he knows other signs which he didn't share with us as well. And the prophets of Allah said, Let me told us generally the Day of Judgment is very close as well. He said worth to Anessa gauhati and me and the Day of Judgment had been sent like these two fingers meaning very close, but does he know the absolute our Of course not this is

00:28:07--> 00:28:11

known, but this is known to no one but Allah Allah is at when

00:28:12--> 00:29:01

I say this because I know this is a belief within some people and it is a false belief. But another thing is that from this we can also take the Jana the hellfire and the heaven they've already been created. Right? Agenda to win now mcglue coeternal earn that the hellfire and Jana they've been already created and they will await us because the prophets are seldom said I saw everything, even Jana and not even paradise and how that shows you that the Jana and not have already been created. Another thing is this shows you that the Pfitzner the trial of the grave, the prophet is exempt from it. He will not go through that. The trial of the grave why? Because he said you will be tested. He

00:29:01--> 00:29:22

didn't say we will be tested sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah has exempted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the test of the grave. Why? Because one of the tests of the grave is what do you say about this man? So the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, he was setting up will you be asked about himself? What do you say about yourself? No, there is no trial of the grave for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:29:23--> 00:29:24

Jimmy

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

now the Hadith number 13.

00:29:33--> 00:29:44

My aim is inshallah to average four to five five a hadith a day. Sometimes we go slower, but this is my aim in sha Allah and Ebihara Allah Tala, the Allahu Allah, Allah, Allahu, Allahu all

00:29:45--> 00:29:50

on the authority of Abu Huraira or the Allahu Allah Allah and he said,

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

that I said, Ya rasool Allah, O Messenger of Allah, Abu Huraira is one of the most common narrators of Hadith so you'll see him

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

Throughout the book

00:30:02--> 00:30:18

and you will see him throughout all of the books as well. Right? Yeah rasool Allah, O Messenger of Allah, Min SR do NASCI be shafa RT K Omen Yama, who is the most likely of people to attain your intercession on the Day of Resurrection.

00:30:20--> 00:31:07

So the prophets of Allah who it was said let me said, Look at Vernon to hear Abba Hora era, Elias Eleni and her the Hadith I had an element I O Abu Huraira thought that, that no one will ask me of this hadith before you I translated it like this, oh Abu Hurayrah because of your keen desire to learn Hadith, I knew that no one will be true to asking me about this hadith. There's a factor in this the prophet is calling His own words, Hadith. This is one of the places where the scholars of Hadith they took the word Hadith from to refer to the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he said, I thought that no one is going to ask me of this hadith before you Lima or a

00:31:07--> 00:31:19

tomb in Hezekiah Allah Hadith s I do not see which of it Yeoman Qiyamah the most likely of people to attain my intercession on the Day of Judgment, or on the day of resurrection will be the one from

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

from his heart or soul sincerely says who from his heart and soul sincerely says there is no God worthy of worship except for Allah who visit us.

00:31:31--> 00:32:10

Now let's go back and break down the Hadith. Number one, from the manners of a questioner is that he addresses the person that he's questioning in the appropriate way. So all of these companions of the Prophet SAW Selim, when they will go to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, they would say Ya rasool Allah and then bring your question. Similarly, if a person has a question, and he wants to address it to a professor, you have to use their proper language, you want to address it to a doctor, use a preferred language, you want to address it to a sheet, use the proper language, you want to address it to any dignitary, use the proper language, because that will be make it more that will make the

00:32:10--> 00:32:47

person more accessible to you. This is just how people are and of course, the Prophet SAW Selim would not withhold from knowledge. But these are dubbed the Prophet taught the Companions over time living with him, they learn this and that's why all of them they start off and they say Ya rasool Allah, O Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam number to get right into your question, right? Sometimes what happens is there's only a limited amount of time, and maybe there's too many people that need to ask questions. So look at how Abu Hurayrah does it Abu Hurayrah by the way, he has a lot of time with the Prophet. He's one of the most common companions to be around the Prophet

00:32:47--> 00:33:33

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but even so, he goes right into the question, and he says, Men, Sr, doonas, vicia, RTKL multicam, who is the most likely of person or who are the most likely of people that will get your shofar? Now I translated this as who is the most likely because that is what it generally means. Okay? But if we get more specific, the Hadith or the question is saying, Who will be the most happiest of people by attaining your shefa by attaining your intercession on the Day of Judgment. So that shows you another factor, and that is that Abu Huraira is searching for happiness. He's searching for happiness in the hereafter. And there's no problem with that. There is no problem

00:33:33--> 00:34:16

in searching for happiness in the hereafter. In fact, this is something a person should be doing. And also there is no problem in searching for happiness within this world as well. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala, his Kazaa in, or his treasure chests, they are so grand and so vast, that by granting you happiness within this world, it's not like the treasure chest of Allah azza wa jal, they get affected by any means. Right? So when you're asking Allah Subhana Allah, don't just ask about one thing, don't just ask about the Hereafter. And that's why in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala teaches us two groups of people. He says women who may call Robina attina for dunya.

00:34:17--> 00:34:55

Well, Marla Humphrey arthrotomy hello from them or people who say, Oh Allah give us in this world and they will be getting getting nothing in the hereafter. But then Allah praises a group of people. And he says, there are there is another group of people who say, I've been a Artina fit dunya has an O Allah, give us goodness within this world, and give us that goodness also, in the hereafter as well. Most of the scholars of the fsid They said this is referring to blessings in this world and blessings in the hereafter meaning the things that make your life more happier, more luxurious, more easy and more comfortable. All of these things. There is no problem in asking Allah because the

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

hazhar and of Allah, the treasures of Allah azza wa jal, they don't get affected negatively by

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

granting you ease in this life, you understand, Jimmy? So he's asking for happiness. Of course he's asking for the hereafter. And Abdullah was a very ascetic man as well, by.

00:35:11--> 00:35:54

So the Prophet SAW Selim responds back. And he says, I thought that no one will ask me of this hadith before you, the prophet is, he has Phil rasa, he has the ability to see through people, he can tell who's going to act and behave in which way. So the Prophet knew Abu Hurayrah is very keen that one day is going to come and ask this question. And so the Prophet gave him the answer. He said, the most happiest of people are the most likely of people who will be granted my Shiva. My intercession on the Day of Judgment is the one who says La Ilaha illa Allah. Now apparently, this seems like other people will also be happy, right? Meaning those who don't say La ilaha illAllah.

00:35:54--> 00:36:37

They could also have the potential of being happy on the Day of Judgment. But the but that's not intended by this. This basically means that people who say La Ilaha illa Allah, depending of the level of loss that they have, because later the Prophet continued, and he said Harlow, Solomon kalbi, he says La Ilaha illa Allah purely from his heart, so people will be at different levels of happiness on the Day of Judgment, based on the level of sincerity they had, when they said there is no God worthy of worship except for Allah, and how they acted by the how, whether they lived by the statement or not, you understand? So that happiness will be different levels, those people who are

00:36:38--> 00:37:16

simply La ilaha illallah and do nothing else. Of course, that's the level of happiness and bliss they'll get in the Day of Judgment. Those people who said La ilaha illallah very sincerely they stood for it lived by died by those people, obviously, they will have a much greater status those people who say not you know how in the law, and they act and live by it and pray and, and all of their lives, they've been worshipping Allah, and they don't go away from this word even for a moment throughout their lives. They are dressed, they make their worship directed to Allah and Allah alone. Of course, this will be a level that's completely different than others. So people of la ilaha illa

00:37:16--> 00:37:54

Allah will also be different levels. Hadith number 14, the hadith of Abdullah had been ama evident as for the Allahu Allah and who he's one of the common companions as well in terms of Hadith. Why? Because he's actually a contender with a warrior. Okay. Abu Hurayrah and Abdullah had been admirable as those are the two some of the most common Mahad defin Abu Huraira he said, there's not a single person who knew more Hadith than me, except for Abdullah had been hammered. He said I used to memorize and Abdullah he used to write so and that also shows you the Hadith was written down at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well. Very common question nowadays because of

00:37:55--> 00:38:14

the Quran is movements, right? So similar to Rasulullah sallallahu it was sitting on my own I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying in hola hola Pablo dual element is an inter zero whom in a bad ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala does not take away knowledge by stripping it away from people.

00:38:15--> 00:38:51

What academia could build on the coveted aroma but he takes away the knowledge by taking away the scholars themselves. Then he says the prophets Allah Salam had either LM up Holloman when no scholars remain, or Allah. Or you can read it as well Hatha Edem Yep, Carlene right when no scholars remain it to her the nasil rules in your hand. At that point, people will take up ignorant leaders who, when asked will give their verdicts without knowledge going astray themselves and leading others astray, as well.

00:38:53--> 00:39:34

There's a lot of things in this hadith. Number one, this hadith is not talking about knowledge in general, it's talking about the knowledge of the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala. That also goes for all of the Hadith related to the virtue of knowledge. They are first and foremost talking about the knowledge of the deen of Allah, secondarily, and it's at least some of those Hadith may incorporate other types of knowledge as well. But the knowledge that these are Hadith which have the virtue of knowledge, right, the knowledge they're referring to is the knowledge of the deen of Allah subhanaw taala the understanding of the Quran the understanding of the Sunnah, and everything around that as

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

well. I say this because sometimes people quote these a hadith and they say, in general, no, no, no. How do we know this? Well look over here. Allah's prophets SLM he said, that until no scholars are left. People will take up ignorant human beings as leaders and they will ask them questions and they will give effect wha who gives a fatwa mechanic, an engineer, a doctor

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

The factoids are given by scholars and all scholars of their religion. And then the Prophet continued. And he said, For the lower of Alou, they will be misguided and they will mislead as well. So where does misguidance? Come? Is it in medicine in the field of medicine? There's misguidance. No, this, these are Hadith, the genre of Hadith related to the virtue of knowledge, they're generally talking about the knowledge of the deen of Allah. Otherwise, all of these other factors, they don't need to be factored in, right. But number two, and this is very important. Number two, is that

00:40:37--> 00:40:45

that it is a duty of an average person to be careful and cognizant where they take their knowledge from.

00:40:46--> 00:40:51

This is very important, ask questions, if you have to.

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

And this is not.

00:40:55--> 00:41:08

This is not to develop a level of hierarchy. But let me put it this way. If you have a problem in your heart, are you going to go to anyone who says I'm going to treat your heart?

00:41:09--> 00:41:47

Why? Because I read a few books, or are you going to make sure the person is a registered Doctor specialist? And then you will go to that person? Just answer yourself, right? It's very, very important. I remember. And this masala right here, I was sitting one brother, he came, he's not here right now. So I can say this. He came to me. And he asked me a question. And he said, you know, and this was when I first came here five, six months ago. And he said that? You know, I have a question. I've been meaning to ask for a long time. And it was really new at that time here. So obviously, the person didn't really know me. Okay. And he said, I saw you leading the prayer. So I thought, I'll

00:41:47--> 00:42:23

ask you a question. I said, What tells you by leading prayer, I'm qualified to answer your question. He said, Should I ask you for your credentials? I said, do so asked me. Why? Because by leading prayer, you don't become qualified to answer a question. One day, I was in the harem, and of course, with a beard and fold and, and I was wearing a shemale. Someone came to me, probably from Libya or somewhere else. And they started asking me a question and the Haram murky. And I said, Why are you asking me this question? Do you know who I am? He said, No.

00:42:24--> 00:42:34

And I said, then what makes you think I am the right person to ask this question to? What makes you believe that I just because of the way I look?

00:42:35--> 00:42:56

Right? Because I have a beard, you think I became the right person to ask a question to because I appear like a person of of knowledge, if someone decides to grow a beard puts a Shema on puts a Bisht on which is a lot now a lot of imposters and they will put all of these tools on, they go outside and they come to you. And they

00:42:57--> 00:43:16

appear to be they look like a person of knowledge. Is that enough reason for you to go to that person and ask them? It is not. It's not you have to verify where you are getting this knowledge from? What is that information that you have? And that's why it costs him even Mohamed Ibn Abu Bakr he used to

00:43:17--> 00:43:24

say that, of course him even Muhammad, he used to say that do not look at how long my beard is.

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

He said don't look at how long my beard is. And don't look at how many people are sitting around me. Because someone came and asked him a question. He said, I don't know the answer to this. And he said, You don't know the answer to this. That stopped looking at the length of my beard. Because this was something that was happening. Even at that time.

00:43:44--> 00:44:29

Buhari had a very small beard. But he was a scholar Kasim. He has knowledge but he doesn't have the knowledge of this particular issue. Someone says you got a big beard, you got to have the answer. It doesn't work like that. You have to check your sources. Why? Because look, Allah says that it tell her the NASA rules and your herland the people they took ignorant leaders, they gave fatwa. So they became they became misguided and misled as well. So Allah didn't excuse the people from the misguidance the Prophet didn't excuse the people from the misguidance. Why? Because they didn't take all of the means necessary to figure out whether the information that they're getting is accurate

00:44:29--> 00:44:48

information, and also from the right sources as well. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he didn't excuse them rather he considered it misguidance Okay, so we go back to this, you have to confirm where you're getting your knowledge from, because honestly, we have a real problem within the Ummah right now.

00:44:49--> 00:44:57

Hola Hola. But anyways, let's go back to it. Let's go to the next point. All right. The next point in this hadith is that

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

you

00:45:01--> 00:45:14

Now this doesn't mean that Allah will not replace these people of knowledge with new people of knowledge. Okay? Is that clear that it doesn't mean when a scholar dies

00:45:16--> 00:45:38

there are some reports to this effect, but not very strong. But it doesn't mean that once the scholar dies, that gap will never be fulfilled, but rather Allah subhanaw taala will potentially allow another scholar to come up and fill that gap and teach the people and give fatwa upon knowledge and so on and so forth. And that is, that is very important. Another thing is that

00:45:40--> 00:46:22

it is the duty of the scholars to tell the people also that their scholars, it is an obligation, especially within our times, why is that, because, again, people they will take up anyone who has a beard speaks if you are a hadith and ayat and I will say this guy is shaping up for me, right? So, a person who is a scholar, he needs to tell people that this is a scholar. Similarly, those people who know that x y, z is a person of knowledge take from him, they need to go and tell people this is the case as well. Like the person that believer in Surah Yaseen, he came, and he noticed that these are messengers they are not being taken seriously. And he went to the people and he said, these are

00:46:22--> 00:47:08

messengers from God to you take them seriously. Right? So it is also their duty as well. And there is no problem in this I'm saying this because if I was to teach say this to you today methylene you'll say What an arrogant human being. But if not Abbas Radi Allahu Taala and who he said this, when the when he read the verse in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala says what Maya Allah? Who illa Allah, wa Rasul Allah, know, no one knows this understanding except for Allah and the people who are deeply rooted in this knowledge as well. Right? So if my boss he said, we're an admin of rasa fina, Phil Levine, Ala Moana, I am from the deeply rooted people and knowledge who understand

00:47:08--> 00:47:43

the real meaning behind all of this, right? And also, Imam is a machete in his book and Mufasa in the beginning, he said that, Allah Ahmed, I praise Allah, I praise Allah. He's expressing this to the people who are reading this book, I praise Allah that He made me from the scholars of the language of the Arabic language of the of the Arabic language right? So all of these are signs that it's there's no problem in a scholar proclaiming to people so that they end up they end up following the right knowledge. This is very, very important because again,

00:47:44--> 00:48:07

others make that claim sometimes by the way, they dress up and many people they cannot differentiate, because when you hear a hadith you hear an ayah it sounds completely the same. And there is no difference between the two will this will stop in sha Allah Kazakh como la heard and for listening are some Allahu Allah you know Muhammad in or early he also have you here
