when a person
Allah subhanho wa Taala magnifies that person's deep
by making other people benefit from them.
When a person speaks from the heart,
it enters the heart
when a person
is sincere, and they do things for Allah Subhana Allah,
Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will make
people will make it easier for others to benefit from
and thus when they
there will be many similar books that others may have written.
But when you mention a book
on particular topic, all you have to do just mention it and people will know that you know, what is this book and there are some people
you might have many scholars
that come from a particular area.
But when you say the scholar is such and such, the scholar, everyone knows who it is.
These are of course, the Imams, their illness, the loss of hanworth Allah, raise your status. So I'm going to give you an example. There are certain books of Hadith and I'm going to mention this scholar but but that's not the scholar we're talking about.
Another one. When you look at the besides it's
in the houses of the Muslims. There are some books that you find them everywhere. Some books that you find them everywhere, maybe a book that you find them was like in every house.
The other side of hate Mashallah baby mama. No. All right. The other side, there are many books.
and there are also many 40 Hadith books. Most people think just you know, there's no the 40 How do you know many people who came up doors, they collect the 40 Hadith.
But when you say the 40 Howdy, yerba Everyone knows that Lima, Manila.
Why? Because when a person is sincere, Allah subhanho wa Taala magnifies the reward and increases the reward even after they pass away, so that people can
benefit from them. And then when they act upon them, the reward will continue to come to them even when they're even when they're gone. It is because of the sincerity of the individual. So a person's deep. The magnitude of a person's deed is determined by the sincerity of the individual and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that to me, Mr. officia, do not do not be literal.
A good deed, do not ever be literal, a good deed.
Even if you were to just meet your brother with a smile on your face, when I when I'm telepathic imagine
because sometimes that smile on your face can change a person's life.
The way you do things, you're the character that you have.
Sometimes it speaks louder than words
in a one time deal with one of the machines. We used to study with him in the US to study with him in his house. And one time he came out, we came out
and we had dinner with him outside. The reason is because he used to give us dinner at home all the time. But his uh, his wife was not home. His wife was a home on that day. And so we went on instead, we went out we started eating
After he finished eating one of the one of the students took like a couple of toothpicks and you know,
no tissue in the house, you know how he extra tissue and and you put it in your car just in case you need it. So toothpicks and tissues, like he stuffed it up your pocket and a couple of them right? She looked at me said, Don't you feel
like for us, everyone, everyone saw it.
Everyone saw it, but
we never took notice of it at all. We didn't think it was anything big.
But with him, he looked at it. He said, Don't you feel a lot. And you know, lots of hazard lay your idea of serenity and what I can do to in that soften. And lots of handlers not let go of anything big or small, except me Oh, hold on, hold you accountable for it.
Except there'll be enumerated on the Day of Judgment. And we're thinking toothpicks, five or six
tissues, a couple of five or six here and there, you might need to go outside, right? So if you are the owner of this restaurant, would you want every customer to do that?
Would you want every customer to do something like that? said though we wouldn't, because we'd have to change. But new paper every two, three hours and new toothpicks? He said yes. Go ahead. You were thinking you're paying for it, you know, we paid for it, right? It's part of the the price that we paid for the food. He says yes. But
it's okay to take a cup one or two and use it both for the next five meals also,
like the next five meals, so we don't think anything of it. But the difference here
is that actions
sometimes speak louder than words. And when you see something in action, it affects you for the rest of your life. And you learn from it. And that's why that's why they're saying right? Your actions speak so loud, I can't even hear what you're saying.
during the time of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam, the Messenger of Allah Sutherland did not just speak and teach the theoretical part on the minbar. And they you don't see him again Until next week, and the member know, he ate with them, he joined them. And he was he traveled with them. And
joined them in their regular activities on the weekdays, and he's always with him. So you can see that what he was taught being applied.
And this is what we're lacking nowadays. Right? You have the mom, teacher, it's maybe it gives a hook by and so forth, man, Mashallah, next week, you don't see me. He's with his wife, and he's with his family. You don't see him again, till next week. Like that, there's no, there's very little interaction and that type of therapy and you don't see it. And so it makes a big difference. And that's why
when a person, as I mentioned, when a person is sincere, love magnifies that person's deep. That's why some of the teachers that we learn from I still remember to this day, there are some teachers when they come into class, I put down the pen.
I don't take notes.
You may say, Well,
that's not a good thing to say, right? No, that's,
that's, I guess what you say? But you know what?
I don't want to miss any words that he's saying. You might say, well, don't worry, I get the note from my friend later on.
But the thing is, if I did, even if I didn't get the notes from him,
like some of the classes I remember him teachings until this day, I could repeat the points I can see them very clear, vivid to this day. Not because I'm smart.
Because I think about it, other teachers put points also, why is I remember these points from this particular teacher. Why? Do you know why?
Because when a person is sincere,
Allah wants to magnify and increase his reward. So that the people who are listening, it stays in their heart.
It changes their lives. So even when,
so that you can go and you can teach others awesome. Others will benefit from that and the reward will still continue to come to that teacher. That's why it's very important, to be sincere.
And not only sincere,
to have said, to be truthful with yourself with a loss of Hanwha data, meaning, whatever you show to others.
In private, you're much better than that.
You're not contradicting yourself, you know doesn't, when you can't when you don't when you contradict yourself, then that's where you have a problem.
was one of those people started. He, he had a book he collected and he put together, the halifa reminded him and told him
his name was Abu Jaffa. And so
he came to him. And he said, Why don't you put together
a book so that people can benefit from
and so he did so. And he taught it and others started to copy.
And they even named it the same name.
But when you mentioned this book, even though you have other books, everyone comes back to it. You only know one. You only know one book, you know his book on it. And so some of you guys probably know who he is already right. Who is the scholar?
Who is it?
Who is it?
Elena Malik Rahim Allah Lima Malik Eman down hedgerow.
Eman of Medina when you say mama Medina, who do you? Who does it come to what comes to your mind?
Allah Malik even Darrell Hendra? Nobody Are there many imams in Medina. There have been many emails but when you say EMA, EMA, the Imam of the place where the companions or the people may hit you out to everyone. The only name you think of is Imam. Imam Malik Rahim Allah.
Allah Malik Rahim Allah. And when you think what was the book that he put together, that he collected that he compiled?
El moussaka, one of his students, they came.
they said, Oh, Imam, why don't you teach us something else? Because all he did was see what he's just teach him? And what
is the validity to something else? Other people have now started to compile and more thoughts. Other more thoughts? So what was our books that had these books that are collected to help people when it comes to fit and so forth?
And so here's what they said. Other people have compiled such things. And so what did he say? He said, whatever's for long will remain, whatever it is, it will disappear.
So whatever's for Allah will remain
the magnitude of a person's actions. The reward is determined by the sincerity and the correctness of that particular action or particular action. And so Allah Malik Rahim Allah
when it comes to knowledge, when it comes to adapt advocates, you learn so much from him. We learned so much from him. First of all, he gave,
he used to give fatwa from a very young age. Does anybody know how old he was when he started giving Fatah? And we're talking about real you know, like, nowadays, everyone's giving birth to okay.
Everyone's Mufti This is what the everybody is everybody. But you know, what's given flatware is something that is
something that is very great that not everyone is allowed to do such things only when the polio and the person has the knowledge, deep in knowledge. But now, sometimes the person will ask, I remember some people asking, they'll ask me questions.
And you're thinking about the answer. And they'll say, oh, Stan, I read it here. There's haraam. Right away. Very straight. People are very fast to say this Highlanders are wrong.
And so that's something that's very dangerous, because when you say something is valid, and something's wrong, it says if you're signing on behalf of a loss of handler, Darla,
are you ready to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala their judgment? They say, yo la, you know you wanted this.
And so that's why we have to be careful, be very careful. And Mr. Malik Rahim, Allah
at the age of 17. But it's because of his great knowledge, but he didn't just go people ask him then he started getting fatter.
Right, he started studying and started learning and so forth. And for some for many years, that but before he would do any of that, he said, I did not sit to give any fatwa until I went to seven D scholars who tested
defy amongst the people of knowledge, who testified that I'm qualified
to give the testimony. We're on 70 majors are the major scholars. And even my medical Rahim Allah.
was, of course, an example when it came to adapt when it came to manners and a person wrote to him and this is something that we we need to learn we need to learn from
when it comes to etiquettes as I mentioned, we're lacking that a lot, especially nowadays. A man can say mahalo. received a letter, somebody wrote to him.
And he was
trying to motivate him to do some good deeds, you know, to be to do certain types of good deeds.
And so, sometimes certain types of good deeds, so he wrote back to him
and he said in the law seminar, man,
Allah subhanho wa Taala divided deeds minette good deeds, just like he divided distributed your provisions that is for a borrower Julian Varadarajan, footie, Hallo fissara Well, I'm, you've definitely hoopha So, sometimes a person will be given a lot will make it easier for him to increase his prayers when he does a lot of suddenness and prayers. But when it comes to fasting, no.
Well, I used to have a soda and some people, a lot of good them, you know, open it up for them made it easy for them to give cyanocobalamin a song, but you know, when it comes to fasting, that's not theirs. And some people Allah subhanho wa Taala makes makes it easy for them to go jihad. But they when it comes to seeking knowledge, they are not too motivated in that matter. And so he said, Well, national admin after a deed,
spreading knowledge as one of the most the best of deeds. And so he said, Well, God already will lead to be my footy Halle fee. And I am pleased with the loss of Hanover has a stupid for me made easy for him, which is seeking knowledge. And
also conveying this knowledge. Well, my aluma and a fee be doing my enta Fie. And I don't think I don't feel like whatever I am doing right now is less than whatever you're doing, but what are you in your corner killin Allah? Hi, we're here. But you know, I hope that both of us are both doing good. And this is all piety and righteousness. This is very important nowadays. You know why? Because there are some, some people, when they start seeking knowledge, they look at the other people look, this guy, he doesn't even do this, and doesn't even do that. But you don't know the other person might be doing other good deeds, other types. Maybe he's giving something up, Allah
made it easy for him to give sadaqa. So don't put down this person and that person because this person is less than you in prayers or in South Africa and so forth, he might be given something else, he might be given something else. And so you have to understand, there are some people when they seek knowledge,
they lead to other people who are doing other things. And they might be doing things that are good. And some people they belittle others also this organization and that organization, and instead of calling to Allah Subhana Allah, they call to their organization or to their group or to their shares and so forth. Because the sooner is to call to Allah Subhana Allah, the suddenness to quarter loss of handler pattern, and there'll be maybe maybe people who are doing good, but don't belittle the other people. But at the same time, don't look at yours as being better your action is being better than the other person's actions. But look at it as a whole that Allah has given you this part. This
is something that you like, because there are some people Mashallah they focus on one aspect of Islam and they make it a whole, and that's it. That's everything. And they belittle other people, some people Mashallah when it comes to
when you speak to him, it's all about our
right, you got to go out and do everything. It's all it's all that's all it is.
And then when it comes to other aspects, you know, establishing, seeking knowledge and so forth, and helping the community doing other things. They might not they say, Oh, no, that's that's secondary stuff. We live in other people, even though other people are doing things that are also good then there are certain people when you speak to them, they all they do speak about jihad,
and establish that she laughs and so forth. And then they belittle other people. That is a part of Islam that was also also a part of Islam. The reason why some people deviate is because they take that small part and make it a whole. They don't look at Islam as a whole. So there are some people mentioned when it comes to seeking knowledge are very good. But when it comes to Islam, manners, from the west be one of the worst people they
have knowledge Yes, but the way they give it, how would they be loved?
Yes, everyone wants to run away from them.
And then there's something special about our Yes, yes, but they don't have anything to give.
If they would just spend methadone, for example, five years or 10 years really studying the deen and then spend another five years calling people based upon knowledge there'd be so much more fruitful it'd be so much more fruitful for example. So you have to look at Islam as a whole. So you might Maddie came along he said, You know, there's some people I love it easy for them.
Some people love it easy in this matter that matter. But don't be no other people don't think that you because you've done this, you're better than me and better than that. And so that's why this is part of etiquette. He said killala file for all of us we're in we're doing good. And so sometimes you have this organization, that organization really wonder if that's a Muslim organization, they're helping Islam and the Muslims and the Muslims. Their success is your success as a Muslim
doesn't matter what the organization is calling to allow what is happening assignment of Muslims, their success is yours, your success as a Muslim Muslim. And so, all of us inshallah hopefully we are doing good that's what mediclaim Allah He mentioned and this is you know, some of the etiquettes and add up and things relating to the wisdom and so forth. Remember Monica Rahim Allah and even Malik about him I was also asked he was asked
he a person came to him I have a very you know, simple question. He said, I have a
so alpha he must alpha Viva meaning this is a you know, a like something like something just easy right? inside my mind. And then he said later feeling shame was a thief. He said when it comes to Islam is nothing but light light.
is nothing so you know, don't don't look at it as as something small or light. Because a lot of Han ifss inessa naki Alec Holland, that ILA. Indeed, we will give you all the power that be a heavy, heavy word, mean the Quranic verses of the Quran and Sunnah. This is all something that's very of the utmost of importance. And so when he was asked about fatwa and so forth, it was something that when he was asked, he said,
and you know that some of the some of the students are Malik about him. They said, if someone asked him a question about Dean, either suella and massala. When he's asking about something, it says, if he's standing by an agenda,
it's as if he's standing between hell and paradise, meaning that answer will determine when the answer is alpha, the Hellfire paradise. So if you don't know don't just just say you don't know. That's why Mr. Mallika mahalo when he was asked a mama Shafi, his student was that students asked him, What did you hear from Mr. Malik? More than anything else? What phrase Did you hear from your teacher? Have you ever really been manic all those years? What phrase Did you hear from him more than anything else? You already said? loudly? I don't know.
The problem is, whenever you hear somebody like that, anyone saying I don't know, then our time because we don't know the etiquettes of knowledge. We don't know. Because we don't know when somebody says, For example, somebody says, I don't know, that guy's nuts. He doesn't know anything. But when somebody answers every question, whether it's right or wrong, how much
I still remember to this day.
I remember to this day,
when I first returned to Seattle,
in the state of Washington.
I would give talks and people would ask me questions. And then if I had any doubts with any question, I would just say, I don't know.
So one of
one of my friends came to me
and he's the body.
Let me tell you something.
We're not in Medina anymore.
When the United States of America right now,
people are so ignorant,
that they don't know their ignorance,
ignorance to the second power.
That's the problem.
when somebody asks you a question,
and you say, I don't know.
They think you're ignorant. You don't know anything. They don't want to listen to you. There's a person that comes and gives talks and this must be also he doesn't know. But he doesn't know he doesn't know.
Anytime somebody asks him a question a lot around right away, and many of them are armed. totally messed up. He doesn't know what he's saying. But people think he's a martial art. Big scholar.
Because He never says I don't know.
And that people don't know that. I said, What am I? What am I supposed to do? Right? He said, I know you know more than him. And you can give people the truth. But he's leading people astray. And you keep on saying, I don't know, nobody want to listen to you.
And nobody want to listen to you. So what are we supposed to do? I said, what my supposed to do? If I don't know. So I said, I know you know, if you know, it said just answer. If you don't know it, at least answered, say like, say something like, inshallah, I'll look out, I will dig more deeply into next week, I'll give you the full answer.
Say that at least. Otherwise, if you keep on saying, I don't know, you can lead people astray. Because they're gonna listen to you. The other guy, and the other guy doesn't know anything. But he will think he knows.
And so, so the problem is,
and our time when we hear somebody saying, I don't know, we think, you know that if somebody always says he knows everything, then that's, that's actually problematic. Because, you know, half of,
you know, some of the companions, you mentioned,
said, half of knowledge I was there that he said, half of knowledge is I don't know. Because you have to know what you don't know before you know what you do know.
Do you understand?
Do you don't know what you don't know?
Then you'll never know. You'll be
confused a little bit.
Mr. Malik Rahim. Allah He used to say, I don't know.
That's what he said the most. And he was asked a hyphen. In the middle. He said, I saw him a medic, he was asked 48 questions, 48 questions, those 48 questions. He said, I don't know 32 times.
So as a mom and a mom,
even double headed on why, you might ask, the reason is because in person gives
you just ruling, it's a serious thing.
Something that's very serious, because you're signing on behalf of Allah Subhana Allah.
And if you don't have the qualifications, then
you don't you say you don't know, don't answer. If you don't know, don't say, Well, I think maybe this is why you read two or three books and say, oh, that you start answering this and that this is something that's very, very dangerous. And
the great scholars are before they are afraid of being veterans. But we also have to understand something when one thing also
when you ask people, ask people have knowledge and past people who are qualified, when a person is qualified, and he has the credentials and the qualification to give fatwa. Even when he makes a mistake, that person will still be rewarded. So you need like, for example, the scholars of Islam, you know, the image the moms these are,
which they do, they can do is jihad, they can they have the qualifications? So if they give the right answer, they will get two rewards. If they give the wrong answer, they will still get one reward for their effort.
It's like, when a person let's say, for example, a hospital is looking for a doctor. So they find out they hire a doctor. And he shows them his credentials, paperwork and everything. So they hire them.
when he does surgery, and so forth, and he's able to actually save a life, he's actually able to save a life, but they find out later on. Two or three weeks later, they find out his
diploma, paperwork, everything is fake. What are they going to do to him?
Did he do anything wrong? Like in his practice? He didn't do anything wrong in his practice, he saved the life. But what are they going to do to him? Because he has a he's not qualified. What are they gonna do, Tim?
First of all, of course, we're gonna fire him. probably put him in prison.
But if a doctor who's qualified,
who's qualified, let's say he makes a mistake, once in a while, nobody's perfectly makes a mistake.
He might not get his bonus.
But he will still get a salary. Right? Not getting the bonus. But he's always he does a really, really good job all the time. He'll get his salary First, we'll get his bonus and get to reward but when somebody is not qualified, they'll put him in jail.
