I'm just going to show biography of the chef. Chef Abdur Rahim McCarthy is of Irish American heritage and was born and raised in the USA. After accepting Islam in 1994.

00:01:47--> 00:01:56

smilla will hamdulillah Salat salatu salam ala rasulillah wala le wasapi Oman, wala Bad Santa Monica Morocco Ricardo.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

The creed of Omar Abdullah Aziz Rahim Allah tala.

00:02:04--> 00:02:10

Talking about the creed of Omar bin Abdulaziz. We always hear about his biography and some of the great things he did.

00:02:12--> 00:02:17

But little do we hear about his creed. Is it that what was his belief? Rahim Allah tala?

00:02:19--> 00:02:37

What is the importance? And why do we study? The credo of the leader of the early generations of the Muslims? What do we benefit? What is the objective here? I was being here tonight studying this or studying from any of the early generations of the Muslims? Why do we want to look into their arcada into their creed and know what it is?

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

What's the benefit?

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

To follow them? Jimmy What else?

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

I have one.

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

Very good to make sure our creed is in line with the correct creed. Because obviously the early generations, where would they take him from?

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

Taking from the Sahaba and from any further from the earlier generations. So Omar Abdulaziz he's from a generation

00:03:15--> 00:03:20

from the second generation winterberry, what do they take their belief from?

00:03:21--> 00:03:50

From the Sahaba of the lavon Mashallah directly. So therefore, we know that it's coming from an authentic source. Also from the benefits. There's a lot of st laugh, a lot of difference of opinion between the oma today and throughout history about what the correct creed is. But if we were to look into the opposite of the self of the early generation of the Muslims, we're going to see those differences not really there. There is some bit that spread we're talking about the main

00:03:51--> 00:04:07

moms and scholars of Islam, you're gonna find that their creed is all the same Alhamdulillah all of these narrations, you'll find that they're there with authentic eseni chains of narrations directly to these great scholars. If you look into example, for the 40 moms,

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

with any difference of opinion between them and Aveda

00:04:12--> 00:04:38

Imam, Abu hanifa, Imam Malik, Mr. Musharraf, you'll find that in general, all of them, they agreed 100% they're the same out either. There's one small issue they differ on but it wasn't any major issue. Just one of them differ with one thing, but other than that, you'll see that they have the same belief system. All of it is the VEDA of the Quran and the Sunnah and the way of the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu. So panela just the other day.

00:04:40--> 00:04:55

We were debating that and on a group that we have one of the Imams he is a good brother, a student of knowledge. He studied in a traditional way known to many of you from back home.

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

And somebody had said something about a certain Sufi group

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

So this Imam, he made a comment that he said you will not find

00:05:07--> 00:05:11

any of the narratives of Hadith in any chain except for that he has Sufi RFID.

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

This is what he said.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

And nobody commented and I looked at this, I said, well, that's interesting

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

is what he said correct or not?

00:05:23--> 00:05:32

To do find no chain of narration of any Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, except for the in that chain of narration, you're gonna find a Sufi, or an SRT in the rafidah.

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

Is this correct or not?

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

Whether said no, there was an incorrect

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

was incorrect.

00:05:47--> 00:05:53

And this one with this, the topic we have Tonight, we're studying the output of the silhouette early generations. This shows us why

00:05:55--> 00:06:10

I stated a question. I said, Okay, if this is true, and the mom hasn't initiated himself, who is the founder of this app, either, that you're claiming he was born in 260 and died 324.

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

If you look at the narratives of the books of Heidi, the nine books of Heidi, the famous nine books of Hadith, when did they die?

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

The authors of the books

00:06:24--> 00:06:32

what are the nine books? First of all, he was in the know the six books what are the nine books? One of the six verse one of the six books of Hadith

00:06:34--> 00:06:38

Bukhari Muslim scholars made easy for Finnish tourists to down for them de la misma

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

abodo tirmidhi

00:06:43--> 00:06:47

nissei and imagine Jimmy, what are the other three to make it the nine

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

dhammapada vema Malik

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

Muslim Imam Ahmed,

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

and the Muslim of

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

a datamine.

00:07:02--> 00:07:29

These are the these are the way called the COVID. Tisha number nine books of Hadith. If you look into when they died, Imam Buhari 256, Mr. Muslim 261, Abu 275. And among anessa, he was the latest who died from then three or three, and a tournament at 279. Imagine 273, Mr. Malik, 179. And a mama 241, and a datamine 280.

00:07:30--> 00:07:37

This is when they died. The person who came with this outfit he's talking about was born and went to 60

00:07:38--> 00:08:12

and died when we said Who remembers 324? So is it possible now the claim that everybody who narrates the Hadith is from that IP That's impossible. For anybody who never heard from the Hadith, the process M was from their opinion, because it came later. But the question then comes now then what did the Muslims believe before this? Because this is why it's spread. Some people come they say the Arpita of their show is the most widespread around the world. Which might be true. You'll find that many people around the world they follow this up either.

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

But before

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

about hasn't it? What do they used to believe?

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

It was there a fader.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

They didn't used to talk about our data before.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

Because you have some of the

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

YouTube scholars nowadays.

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

The famous ones who say IP that's not important. It's not in the Quran. We don't need to focus too much either.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

Is this a correct view?

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

All throughout the early Muslim they talked about either. If you go to Sahil Bahati

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

the last book and sell Buhari What is it?

00:08:50--> 00:09:31

He tab of what a to heat and the beginning of sale Buhari, you have keytab le man as well. All of this shows the importance of of our data and throughout the roads, special books about our key that we talked about in different lectures in detail. So it's important we understand the creed of the early oma to understand what is the correct creed once you understand that, and you see what they say. It gives you your thing and certainty and that which is the correct belief and what we should believe as Muslims in general tala looking into the statements of Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah tala. It was very clear what he was upon. He was very clear. From the time he became the halifa. What his

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

methodology was. When he gave the advice in the beginning, he advised him to have the taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to hold firm to the book of the law, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala were to emulate the sooner and guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lifted sooner and governorship after him was carried out according to the sooner in the way of the Sahaba after him and the adherence to the book of Allah subhana wa putana

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

The dean of a law, as he said, is not for anyone to replace. Pay attention to the wording of what he's saying. He says not for anyone to replace, neither should they hold an opinion in contradiction to it and to the Quran to the sooner. Whoever is guided by it is guided and whoever seeks its help. He is victorious, was the one who bends and follows a path other than the believers alone will give him what is due to him and grant him the worst fate and gentlemen, here Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah tala, as soon as he became the halifa, he made it clear to the people what was his main hatch, what was his methodology, and that is the way of adhering to the Koran, and to the center and to the way

00:10:40--> 00:11:04

of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. And then whoever adheres to this path, that he will be successful and he will be victorious and whoever it turns away from this path, that he will be from those who will fail in this life. And, and then next, also from the way of Omar Abdulaziz, that he made clear to the people was following the way of the whole of Russia D.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

And why should we follow the way of the whole of Russia it

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

was important to follow the way the hula Rashidi

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

first of all who are the qualifier Rashid

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

abubaker.

00:11:23--> 00:11:28

Ahmad was man, Wiley, who is the fifth one.

00:11:30--> 00:11:45

And we mentioned that in the code and hasn't even alley well their loved one, and some people add Omar Abdulaziz as the fifth of the whole affair as well, because of how he followed their way, especially when it came to the way of his grandfather or a father of their loved one.

00:11:49--> 00:11:57

When he, in following the weight of the whole of several of his statements, he made it clear that this is the only way to follow. He said to him a long time

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

when he was

00:12:00--> 00:12:03

first of all go back to the question, which is why do we follow the hula Rashidi?

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

Why is it important? Before he mentioned his statements? Why is it important to follow the holy ferocity?

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

What did he say?

00:12:20--> 00:12:27

Very good. He said because they follow what the Providence lm says which is true, that's correct. But there's something else

00:12:37--> 00:12:51

very good. And something similar that means the meaning is correct. And the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us and is very important. When you reflect on as soon as the prophet SAW Selim, he prepared us for everything. To the law, it was said.

00:12:52--> 00:13:28

He said, many I mean come for Sierra dlF and kt RA, whoever lives from you, Santa Saba, and those who come after them, you're going to see a lot of extra length. So that's the first thing to get is what prepares, be prepared. We talked about the FT laugh we have in the oma and the Arpita. And what we believe in and how we believe in that in that last panel. People say why aren't we together? Why can't we come together? What is the difference? What were the more we so spread out and so separated? We can't even come together in the meaning of Layla. And the only way for us to come together on this meaning on what is the correct understanding is to come back to the way the set of

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

the early Muslims understood the IP that

00:13:30--> 00:13:50

the professor said and he said we're going to see a lot of extra left a lot of differences. So what is the solution? Rasul Allah says Allah, Allah is going to tell us and we'll be ready. So what is the sutra how to be successful now to hold on to Islam, and to be safe? When we see these fklf that these differences, he said finally can be suniti.

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

It's upon you to what follow my sooner.

00:13:55--> 00:14:05

And then he said La Silla to Sam was sunit el Coronavirus, el el Medina midbody. And the sooner the khilafah the rightly guided cooler who come after me?

00:14:06--> 00:14:17

He said I'll do I have been a virgin. He said bite down on to it with your molar teeth. What does this mean? The President does the bite down onto the sooner how do we bite down onto this and how to do it?

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

What does this mean?

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

The famous idea that's in the 40 hadith of Hema knowing

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

how do we bite down into the Sonia one.

00:14:29--> 00:14:39

By practicing implement holding on tight to it. What happens now, if you're stranded in the middle of the sea, and the search and rescue they come to you

00:14:40--> 00:14:45

and you want to save yourself they send down the rope, how you're going to hold on to it.

00:14:48--> 00:14:53

Very tight, as well also been with Alan and Isaiah where I told him we will happily lay Jimmy, Jimmy on

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

hold firm to the rope of a law, the Dean of a law supanova over the processes a bite down on

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

The sooner with your molar teeth hold as tight as you can.

00:15:04--> 00:15:33

If you're fighting for survival and somebody somebody's beating you up you'll do anything you'll bite them to be victorious right anyway out to be successful. Bite down onto me hold firm to the pseudonym hold as tight as you can to the sooner that's the only be successful The sooner the prophecies sell them and the son of the whole of Arashi. Then he said Allah salat wa salam at the end of the Hadees way Jaco Mo Mo. Mo Mo foeniculum Desert in VEDA, he said and be aware of the invented matters into the region, because all of the invented matters and the original form of VEDA,

00:15:34--> 00:15:52

Omar Abdulaziz when he was given a hobo One day, he said to the people, is not this is a this is a question we need to ask ourselves and ask the entire oma, we come to the issue of the creed, he said is the son of the Prophet and his two companions in our book aroma of the Allahumma.

00:15:54--> 00:16:21

And his two campaigns a religion for us to adopt into it Isn't that enough? The sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and that of his two companions. He said there is no other sooner that I would wish for very clearly stating that the way of Islam is the way of the prophets are celibate the way of our book here in the way of oma, where do you take this from now I want you to pay attention to SharePoint as we're looking through his op ed here tonight. Everything that he says

00:16:22--> 00:16:40

it's based on the Quran and the Sunnah and the way of the sub. All of the statements of Omar Abdulaziz want to take, if we're to say, here's the evidence from the Quran, here's evidence from the sooner is evidence from the statement of this hub in the way of the Sahaba all of it. And the sooner the sooner your mama tirmidhi had either

00:16:41--> 00:17:24

robbed the Allahu and said he was sitting with they were sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, I don't know how much longer I will remain with you. So take these two as an example, after me, and he pointed out well, Booker, and Toma robiola inhuman the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when Omar bin Abdulaziz came to establish and to revive Islam and bring Islam back to its glory and how it should be, this is one of the things he focused on, and establishing the crip Cree was the way of the Sahaba. One time he was asked about a man who was drunk, and he divorced his wife. And he ordered in the beginning that the man that he be

00:17:25--> 00:18:03

flogged and separated from his wife, until a ban on earth man, the son of a madman are found while their loved one. He said that his father had said that the majority and the ones who were possessed or insane, and the ones who are drunk, did not get divorced. And he said, You heard this from Earth man. And he said yes, therefore he changed his opinion. He changed his opinion to follow the opinion of earthmen law, the Aloha respect of the way the hula varosha Dean, also when he dealt with the cottage, and it's very important for us to understand and how he dealt with the cottage, as we ourselves in the day we live in are dealing with a major issue of ones who have similar appeals to

00:18:03--> 00:18:16

the appeal of the Quaritch. He said that he dealt with the horrors the same way that I'll even be thought of, well, their loved one dealt with the cottage. How did Ollie follow the law and deal with the cottage?

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

What do you do the coverage?

00:18:25--> 00:18:28

Now that it burned him was the another group

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

because he fought them is true. But did he fight them right away? or What did you do in the beginning?

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

Very good. He talked to them. He had a dialogue with him. First of all, he sent who

00:18:47--> 00:19:26

Abdullah best for the love for anime spoke with him and many of them. They may tober and they repented about 4000 of them. And then Ali rhodiola himself, he debated with them and advise them and then after that when they refused, and there was no other way he had to fight with them. When he fought with them. Did he treat them as Muslims or non Muslims? He treated them as Muslims. And they asked him Are they call for an E seminal cofra forbo that they ran away from Kufa. That's why they have reached this type of extremism in their religion. So obviously he didn't look at them as being cool for he fought them. He treat them as Muslims. He dealt with their family and their properties

00:19:26--> 00:19:43

after the battle he dealt with them as Muslims and not as non Muslim and this is the way Omar Abdulaziz as well. Rahim Allah tala dealt with them. Also when you look into his creed, you see that he focused on the importance of the fitrah What is the fitrah? What does it mean the fitna

00:19:46--> 00:19:54

it's the it's the natural disposition or the inclination that you have inside. Does everybody have it? Or just us the Muslims?

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

Everybody has it the prophets was mc kulu malu every

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

child that is born ulit Allah and fitrah is born on this natural disposition, something natural inside, which is the worship of law and not worship other him. What happens to the human being as the premises I'm saying that he, his parents come and make him a Christian or make him a Jew or what have you. And that's why they believe what they believe. But naturally, any human being inside, naturally, we automatically believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:20:24--> 00:20:57

Even with deal with Muslims, and giving Dawa to Muslims, it's also important to focus on giving data to that fitrah when we want a Muslim, he's far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's committing sin, all Muslims inside if he's a Muslim, he says the kenema and he prays or he tries to pray as much as he can, you'll find that inside, there's good, it might be covered up with a lot of filth and sin. So we have to get to that fit throughout to be able to bring him back to a loss of pendulums, Allah, also those who have gone straight in the issue of Aikido when it comes to the belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala,

00:20:59--> 00:21:19

calling him back to the fitrah. And there's an example of that, when one of the general people was debating one of the big scholars who believed in the leader of their shadow, and he didn't believe in that either better sooner with Gemma, when it came to wear alloys, which is above is thrown away, but fitting with His Majesty, as we know, from the ayah to know put on

00:21:21--> 00:21:33

here, this man said to this great scholar, as he tried to bring evidence to prove where they knew not to ask where a law is and to have a different position in the position of the senate when it comes to this understanding.

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

He asked him a simple question.

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

Talking to the fitrah

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

didn't bring evidence

00:21:42--> 00:21:51

from the Quran and the Sunnah. He said, The only only thing i want to know is when you raise your hands, or you make do I? Where do you raise your hands to?

00:21:53--> 00:21:57

Who was this guy naturally, immediately you look up when you when you make you do a lot.

00:21:59--> 00:22:30

And that's why you said hire nail hammer danika. He said, a disgrace. Got it. And he didn't know how he was he had knowledge, even though he went astray in this issue. But he didn't know how to answer this question. Because the filter is it's true. If you're saying no, you don't say a law is is above the Throne. And you try to change the meaning of his theory. And try to say this and that when you see where do you raise your hands when you make dua? What do you do when you make dua? This is the fifth row. So it's very important that we focus on the Fraternal Order our two Muslims and non Muslims over me Abdelaziz when a man was asking about some of the data and the things that had

00:22:30--> 00:22:41

spread throughout the oma, he gave him response by saying, you should follow the religion of a young man in the Khatib what is the karate

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

was a mean, the madrasa when they go in and learn how to write and read the beginning alleys.

00:22:51--> 00:22:56

And he said, in the religion of an era man in the desert, and leave everything else.

00:22:57--> 00:23:31

And we found many of the early Muslims when they said, Allah can be de la J's follow the Dean of the elders. What does this mean? So there's been there's different things that spread even during the time of the early Muslims. The issue of other the Jamia the multizilla, the Rafi, the Shia, a lot of these early things spread the Madhya the coverage, all of this stuff spread in the in the beginning, during his during his time. So why is he telling this man to follow the data of the little boys who are learning alphabeta? Or the Bedouin man in the desert in his tent?

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

Why would you tell him to follow this?

00:23:35--> 00:23:43

Because he's on the fifth row. And when you ask the young boy, the same thing he knows, one young boy who gave Dawa to a Buddhist one time

00:23:44--> 00:24:16

and asked them he said, he said, I never could understand I was seven years old, I couldn't understand how they would give food to these statues. Because he had the natural fitrah. He wasn't a scholar in Islam. He used to pray with his parents and stuff like this. He said that kidding. But he didn't have knowledge. But he knew that was wrong naturally, so that couldn't be correct. So he started giving hour later to these Buddhists asked him how can you go and give food each day to the statue and who eats it? How is he doesn't benefit? Does it make sense? So talking to that fitter? Also when you look into the creative entrepreneur of the disease,

00:24:17--> 00:24:22

the concept of the man and what is the meaning of the word a man

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

and this issue of the definition of what is a man? Why is it important?

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

That we define what your mind is? Why is it important?

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

It's not important to know that what does he mean? Wasn't mean he Mandan

00:24:44--> 00:24:51

means faith Yeah, that's the translation. That's it. What does it mean though? I see the word he man. If I say salad, what is the word salad mean?

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

The salad salad mean?

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

That a salad the salad salad before lunch.

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

So you guys understand what I'm saying?

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

What does that mean? If I say what is solid

00:25:14--> 00:25:32

that's it that's the definition and the language the key word select means do well as the brother said, it's it's it's it's statements and actions started starts with the tech beer. And we're friends with the destiny. That's the definition of the word salad. So anything in Islam, the scholars, they come and they define it to understand what it means. So the word Eman

00:25:33--> 00:25:43

in Arabic means it does speak to believe. But as Imam even kathira him along with Allah said that in the [???]tier, I came and gave more meaning to what he meant.

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

It doesn't just mean that that's the belief. It means what a man

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

that's only one aspect of a man.

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

The concept of a man has to have three things.

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

or four if you want to say

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

the

00:26:08--> 00:26:18

very good, Elko lamb and meaning that it's believed in our hearts, that we testify with the tongues with the Kelly mommies that we entered into evidence, and then the actions

00:26:19--> 00:26:54

that we actually act upon the man that it's not just enough to be in the heart There's the meaning the the real meaning of the word man. And then as the scholar said, use z do a unchoose earring increases in decreases and increases with good deeds and decreases with bad deeds. Why is this important? First of all, the scholars paid very close attention to this, because many of the people who went astray from the first people one of the groups who went astray from the cottage, and the mafia, they didn't understand the correct belief when it came to a man to important understand what is the word a man Omar Abdulaziz.

00:26:56--> 00:27:00

He described the man he said a man includes for all

00:27:01--> 00:27:06

the duties which are fought and Shara legal laws and Hadoop

00:27:07--> 00:27:38

allows for borders between that which is lawful and unlawful and sunon, which are waves and acts of worship of the voluntary acts. Whoever acts on these, whoever acts on these things completely has completed his faith, and whoever does not act upon them completely, his faith is incomplete. If you look into the definition of Omar robiola, one and Rahim, Allah, you'll see that he's given the same definition of what the man is with Allison ojima. And we look into the early statements of the scholars.

00:27:39--> 00:27:48

This is one of the ways that the later scholars understood as well, these definitions they came with. And it's very important to understand this because

00:27:49--> 00:27:53

in the days we live in, you'll find some people who even might be scholars

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

who belittle the importance of al Qaeda.

00:27:59--> 00:28:08

And some of them to the extent we heard say that what is these different categories have to heat how many categories you have categories have to heat?

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

three categories.

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

Where's the I was a Heidi This is totally these three categories.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

What you're doing deal

00:28:22--> 00:28:54

there's no if there's no Hadith on the scholars looked into the Quran, so Allah subhanho wa Taala is either talking about his rule will be it, which is His Lordship are talking about his Ulu here, which is right to be worshipped, or his s Mansi. Fact his beautiful names and attributes. Does anybody deny that? That's clear. So scholars and this is from even from the early scholars, if you look into some of the research, like the research of our shift up, there's nothing but you'll see that he went down to the, from the early generations of the Muslims, even who had this definition, that to heed his three categories.

00:28:55--> 00:29:30

You'll find some people now and said that we heard one even habilitated, Omaha Pablo de la Han. So if he were to take an exam that we do not pay that he would not pass the exam with the biller, he would know that the target is three categories. But you see, when you go back to their statements, they understood the same understanding, just as I would have not been Aziz himself, he might not have said that these are the categories of the man but you can take it from the definition he said. So this understanding is clear from the Quran and the Sunnah, from the statements of the self, that this is the correct way to understand the word Iman the quick way to understand the two he is there

00:29:30--> 00:29:42

in their statements. And just like now you've got this thing is it's important understand this when it comes to the issue of the definitions or the categories because many people will come and they make where's this it's not from Islam?

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

Who here knows anything about Arabic grammar?

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

Who knows anything but nobody

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

knows they know how the whole machine brother study. But what are the categories of XML column

00:30:01--> 00:30:37

This is similar federal hubzilla here is a noun, verb or which is a letter. Anything in the Arabic language doesn't come out of these three categories. The early Muslims if you were asked them about these categories would they know about them? Like they would know but from the implementation they know it. Just like the implementation when it comes to the categories of hate they know it. This is the lowest lordship This is right to be worshipped deserves Beautiful Names and attributes. And there's many examples that we can show for this. Here in this explanation, Omar of the Aloha and Rahim Allah, He said that a man is Freud which is the compulsory or obligatory actions such as

00:30:38--> 00:31:16

praying fasting and what have you. And Shara which is the doctrines of belief, such as belief in a law has angels, and whatever is the brother is going to mention we asked what is the man who brought the economy man, and who do them which is the prohibitions, obviously, all the things that are wrong, and then as soon in the recommended acts, and he said that whoever acts on all of these completely he will complete his faith and whoever does not act upon them in his faith is what incomplete this is the definition of a listener that a man uses when considering increases and decreases the same belief as the, the scholars of Allah Suna and Jamal.

00:31:18--> 00:31:22

When it comes to this issue of understanding what is the man

00:31:23--> 00:31:30

and this is a lesson was a Amelie I took from one of the scholars when I was in Medina, and shaqab. The reason but

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

there was a big issue that happened,

00:31:35--> 00:31:37

where one of the scholars

00:31:39--> 00:31:50

he was saying something when it came to an issue of a man, or the students of knowledge, you can say he was saying something when it came to the issue of human which was going against the belief or the creed of Addison ojima.

00:31:51--> 00:31:59

Basically, the one who doesn't act and doesn't do anything, as long as he says the kelemen as long as he has a man in his heart that he's a movement.

00:32:00--> 00:32:34

And he left off the third category, which is that of the MLM acting and implementing lailah law. If a person doesn't act as long as he says it, Nicolas is a movement, which goes against the belief of hellsten wajima. So as the shake as we're going to sell it to the future, I was coming from my house, he was conference, we ran into him on the way and asked him about this issue. I said, Chef has become a big fitna, the brothers now have separated she thought always comes we're doing good. And then something happens and we separate into different small groups. So by the law, even though the issues a lot of times are clear. So I said this issue of a man that's come now with Chef so and

00:32:34--> 00:33:12

so he said, when it comes to this issue is that it's clear as it came in the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari from the waft of Abdullah, Abdullah pace, the delegation, or the delegates of Abdullah face when they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he said, I order you to do four things. And I forbid you four things, the four things that he ordered them to do. He said, first of all, to believe in a law, and to believe in the law as one he said, you know what it means to believe in all this one, he said, is to testify that no one has the right to be worshipped except the law. And then he said, to offer the prayers perfectly, and to give the Zakat and to give the homeless one fifth of

00:33:12--> 00:33:39

the spoils of the war and a lost cause. What do we gain from this? When he said, he described the man what is the man and he said, to believe in Allah is one. And then to do what to pray, to give this a cut, and to give this fifth of the spoils of war? What are these things here, all actions. So a man is the real man is the one that's put into actions. He said, This situation is clear. And then he said, something to me is one that I'll never forget. He said many of these brothers

00:33:41--> 00:33:42

who debate these issues.

00:33:44--> 00:33:56

And we remember them from Edina, the ones who would stay awake at night, talking about you and me and him and so and so so and so's on it, so and so's off of it. He said, Well, I said they don't come every village in the masjid.

00:33:59--> 00:34:33

He said, they don't come and prefecture in the masjid. And what they what the chef was saying was true, because hamdulillah we pray in the masjid to the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we had some of them, they were our neighbors, and they wouldn't leave. And we know they weren't going to the Automator wells from their neighbors who live with him. Now leaving the house to pray for you. They stay awake at night talking about other people talking about things, issues, and he says something beautiful to me. benefit from him. I made no claim Rahim Allah tada in the book of alphoid. He said, Are you lazy the Lord OBE man for Elmo Madhu? that any knowledge

00:34:35--> 00:34:52

that doesn't increase the person in his faith. It's multiple meanings. Something's entered into your knee, you don't have a pure need. So if you're not increasing your Eman when you're studying a certain knowledge, it's not a beneficial knowledge. So if you're gonna sit around and talk about other people throughout the night and then not get up and free fudge The next morning, is that a good set or a bad set?

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Because if it was something good, you would have been on the front row, wouldn't you? It would have increased you in your mind.

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

With this type of thing, you meet Tim Hortons the heart, therefore, you're not gonna find any benefit from it. And we look into the story of Omar Abdul Aziz Rahim Allah tala, you will see that

00:35:13--> 00:35:23

his Eman was one of actions, one of implementation. You'll see how he broke down into tears. We mentioned today in the

00:35:24--> 00:35:25

what

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

saw him case on the scholar who used to teach him

00:35:31--> 00:35:53

what he said to his father when his father came to Medina and said, how's my son doing? He said, I didn't haven't seen anybody that a law is more greater than his heart than that young boy. And he was young at that age. He was a young boy who was crying one day, and then went to his mother so your son, he broke down into tears. He's crying. She sent him asked him, Why are you crying?

00:35:54--> 00:35:57

He said to Dakota north, he said, I remember death.

00:35:59--> 00:36:09

young boy thinking about death at that age, and broke down into tears, think about the reality of death. His mother when she heard this, she herself started to cry broke down into tears.

00:36:10--> 00:36:21

emammal mojari when it comes to the issue of what is the man, he said that I traveled throughout the Muslim lands, Mr. mcquarry, one leader who remembers in the beginning

00:36:26--> 00:36:38

256 there are 256 he said I traveled all throughout the Muslim lands. And he said I met more than 1000 scholars.

00:36:41--> 00:36:57

And he said all of them, say at the man or woman that the man is from the code. And it's from the actions, not just something that's in the heart, not just something's on the tongue, but something that's put into actions. This is the belief of Allison ojama and this is what we've taken from

00:36:58--> 00:37:10

the statement of Omar Abdulaziz when it comes to the issues of toe heat and the different categories of to heat. Omar Abdulaziz used to saying is do I pay attention is do I not ask you? What type of do i is this?

00:37:11--> 00:37:17

He used to say is do I owe a lot? Certainly I obeyed you and the most beloved of things to you.

00:37:18--> 00:37:20

Which is what was the most beloved things to Allah?

00:37:27--> 00:37:30

What's the most important thing in Islam please make an understanding for you.

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

Before the most

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

so hate

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

to hate is

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

the kelim is the most important thing. And then the Animas

00:37:44--> 00:37:50

he said, Oh, certainly, I'll be doing the most beloved of things to you that which is a to hate,

00:37:51--> 00:37:56

and I did not disobey you and the most despise things to you, which is

00:37:57--> 00:37:58

chick,

00:37:59--> 00:38:02

and then he will make dua and they say, therefore Forgive me.

00:38:04--> 00:38:10

And then he will make you do after that. So here now, in this Do you see what the first whatever you do as this

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

what do you call

00:38:14--> 00:38:35

it is called it was a do other torso, making torso torso panel. And this is one of the proper ways of tawassul which is to make the dude with the Amal sila hell with the good deeds. So you're making dua, and he shows you the importance in this throughout the importance of non law and employment and understanding what a law law means which What does it mean?

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

What does it mean?

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

What is the meaning of the law?

00:38:44--> 00:39:08

In the law, because many people have their brother got it. But many people say that there's no God other than a law there's a translation we have is a correct translation. It's not wrong because a lot of Gods out there, but they're false gods. So there's no deity or no God worthy of worship, except Allah, Allah, La wouldn't be happening Allah is the meaning of the word, Allah. And we see Omar rhodiola and here focusing on

00:39:10--> 00:39:47

the importance of tawheed and the danger of shift and he said, I obeyed you when it came to heat, and I didn't disobey you when it comes to the most despised thing to the shoot. And he's making Oh Forgive me Allah is called to us. And we see this in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada and sort of earlier Milan, have been in an SME community unity liniment. Amman, in verses 193 and also putana said we heard a call or calling to be to believe in your Lord. So we believe then what is the duty that comes after that? And then is it Roberto felt villain alumina? Allah forgive us from our sins will cover under say yes, you know, and from our shortcomings to the end of the ayah. There's an

00:39:47--> 00:39:54

example of Nakamura and we know the famous story in the Hadith of the processing of the three men who are trapped in the cave. What do they do as a way to get out of the cave.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

They turn to do i do after what that metal saw they have to they're good.

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

These as well also a form of a suit or more of the law one

00:40:05--> 00:40:09

forbids and focus on the dangers

00:40:10--> 00:40:12

of taking graves as places of worship.

00:40:14--> 00:40:22

And one of his statements he said Rahim Allah tala, he said the last thing that the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala said was what

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

was

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

the last thing the prophesy Selim said?

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

Goodbye.

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

sell him for a demo.

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

We'll see. I mean, who will echo sia

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

that

00:40:51--> 00:40:55

can occur when you see Yeah. And also wanna see Haley Ahmed he.

00:40:59--> 00:41:03

Before he died, he talked about the salaat. And what else

00:41:06--> 00:41:18

don't take the graves as a place of worship. Here, Amara de la and he said, the last thing the president said him said, meaning from the Messiah from the advice he gave Duma with the brother said as well they were faithful before he died. Here are some of the

00:41:20--> 00:41:40

the advices he gave to the oma Melo destroy the Jews and the Christians who have taken the graves as places of worship. Omar bin Abdulaziz mentioned this in the hope but to remind the people of the importance of to eat and the dangers of ship. And then he also used to forbid them from building tombs or anything like that on the sites of graves.

00:41:42--> 00:41:46

Why would he forbid from building tombs on the sites of graves?

00:41:48--> 00:41:49

Who forbid it before him?

00:41:51--> 00:42:15

The prophets of Allah Selim and so he Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbid plastering over greys or sitting on them or to build any structures over them as soon as the promises and was there anything that I want him to have done as its as we're gonna study inshallah tonight from his creed, and we're gonna study tomorrow from his life, anything it comes directly from the Quran from the Sunnah, the way of the Sahaba does it leave that

00:42:17--> 00:42:24

taken directly from the sources? The question comes now. And this is very interesting. Why

00:42:25--> 00:42:48

would Amaro de la Juan Rahim Allah, why would he focus on this issue of too hidden the dangers of shirk, even though at this time in oma there wasn't really an issue when it came to that. It went in general and this issue of the UI the UI of a bother, the people were still more or less on the purity during this time.

00:42:49--> 00:42:52

So why would he put so much emphasis on this?

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

What's the reason why

00:42:58--> 00:43:31

very good for the prevention, that because the correct understanding had of the pseudonym. And the way he used to follow the sooner the process and many of the things the person said was because of the prevention, what's going to come to teach them the importance know the importance, and also prevent what can come in the future, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at the time of death? Why would he focus on this? Because he doesn't want as the narrative that had these he doesn't want his oma to fall into the same trap that the almost before then fell into of taking his grave as a place of worship and worshiping him, I lease it out to a sinner, as I said, and I had it in him and he said,

00:43:31--> 00:43:36

Let the pruning come out or nosara is a medium, do not over exaggerate and praising me,

00:43:37--> 00:43:42

as the Christians over exaggerate in praising Jesus, the son of Mary,

00:43:43--> 00:43:56

then what did he say? They said unto them, we'll get to all how simple the process is for him. And I've done for Paul Abdullah, who was pseudo secularism. He said, I'm an I'm a servant. So say the servant of Allah and His messenger. So the lawyer says,

00:43:57--> 00:44:16

This is how Omar diseases was as well. When you look into his belief in the laws, Beautiful Names and attributes. Many of his statements show his understanding to this principle of the APA, or the credit creed. And one of his letters, write him along, Tyler,

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

he mentioned

00:44:19--> 00:44:20

that

00:44:22--> 00:44:59

it is from the greatest ignorance to claim that knowledge came after creation, when in fact a law alone ceases to be the all knowing of everything, and all witnessed everything that'll also pattern wattana on a collision shahida and he's an NA, le makuuchi Shahid konnyaku. Share, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Shaheed and the Eileen. And another example when he went to visit one of his colleagues who had passed away and he saw the family, you know, crying and screaming. He said to them, that this man is not the one who used to provide

00:45:00--> 00:45:24

For you, and the one who provides for you is the hate the EverLiving, who never dies upon warthog. Here are three examples of three of them Beautiful Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he used in one of his letters and one of his statements, Rahim Allah, tada, the alley, and the Shahid, and LA. But how do they use this is important.

00:45:25--> 00:45:47

He used to understand the meanings of it, and when to use it, and how to use it. Because each of these names has a meaning behind it. It's not just the 99 names you put on the wall for Baraka. But all of these names have meaning behind them. And you see in what he wrote and what he said that a lot of this man has had died, who was a law, the complete and hate

00:45:48--> 00:46:12

the EverLiving, who never dies to power down he is the one who provides and the other example le mushahid also, you'll see examples when it comes to the attributes of a low so panel wattana, where he said when he wrote to the cottage, because the coladas he went in different levels, he advised them to come back to the foreign into the sooner and he said to them, I swear to you by a law, even if you have my firstborn sons.

00:46:13--> 00:46:15

What does this mean this introduction right now when you read

00:46:16--> 00:46:19

chess, where do you buy a lot, even if you my firstborn sons,

00:46:21--> 00:46:27

important pay attention, it doesn't matter who you are, what status you have, he said I would spill your blood

00:46:29--> 00:46:33

but which I would seek a law's face and the abode of the hereafter.

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

He wants to he wants to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:46:39--> 00:46:50

He wants to get the reward for kidney if he has to, he called him back to the Koran sooner. But he said if I have to kill you, I'll do it. And is the same way that I'll even have a thought that with him the same thing the prophesy centum said about dealing with him that

00:46:52--> 00:47:04

they would have to be killed. He made it very clear, but here obviously you see the issue of wedge allow me mentioned in this also and other examples, when he talked about the odor of Allah subhanho wa Taala when one of the

00:47:05--> 00:47:42

in speaking to one of the people as well. When you look into the so these are examples of him understanding and implementing when it comes to a lot of names and attributes and both his speech and in his letters he used to write to the people as well Rahim Allah tala, when you look into the his belief in the last day, several of the examples, he when he talked about the pleasure and the torment of the grave when he talked about the resurrection. He talked about the me's and talk about the hope the Pulitzer Prize and the Surat and the will comes in agenda and the Hellfire and the believers seeing the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala yomo piano as it's confirmed in the Quran, and

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

the Sunnah,

00:47:44--> 00:48:20

and actually confirmed over 30 different narrations of the of the Sahaba of the law, and the prophets. And I made that clear in the hadith of Sahih Bukhari Muslim, as he was sitting with the Sahaba. And he looked up at the full moon. And he said to them, that you will see your Lord you will see Robin hereafter, just as we are seeing this moon, and they will not be the slightest inconvenience and seeing him. This is the leader of Omar Abdullah disease when it comes to all of these issues we want quickly Now, obviously, because our time is running out. We'll inshallah mention the Angela with just one or two points. And that is his position when it came to that which

00:48:21--> 00:48:27

the Sahaba difference. It's important to us to understand this is from the principles in the outfield. And as soon when Gemma

00:48:28--> 00:48:33

that he mentioned, when it comes to certain issues, that

00:48:35--> 00:49:10

he was happy, he said, I would not have liked it the companions of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never disagreed, as had the unanimously concern on one view that people were not the people who would have been constricted. What was meant by this Imam even though he said, this means issues of he had issues or what have you. And I don't talk about issues of our feet and things like this, because obviously they didn't differ when it comes to these issues. They were on the same principles and understandings. Other issues they differed upon, like what happened in Sofia in the battle, Sophia, he was asked

00:49:12--> 00:49:16

about his opinion about this. And there's a very important principle he's about to teach us that has ease.

00:49:17--> 00:49:23

He said, a law stop that blood from touching my hands. And I hate this thing, my tongue with it.

00:49:25--> 00:49:59

Eventually, on one side of this, how are they different when it came to these battles? And these differences they had, and the thing that happened between the Sahaba he said, a law stop the blood from touching my hands, and I hate to say my tongue with it. Even though the scholar said one person was right one person was wrong. One group was right one person was wrong. But therefore, they did not he had all of them they didn't wish they had therefore, we do not talk negatively about any of this hub. This is our belief. And this would Omar's teachings here right ramola is that we do not talk negatively about this habit in any way.

00:50:00--> 00:50:18

shape or form. And when it comes to his stance, from Alberto De La Hoya, and many of his statements are very clearly how he used to praise and respect Adi as he respected all of the whole of rhodiola Han, and even what was said in many of the books of history than why we

00:50:20--> 00:50:36

used to talk negative alley rodilla on all of these things are lies. It's true that some of the people have been evil may later some of them had negative things to say about their loved one. But more either way himself and Omar Abdulaziz you'll see that very clearly they were from those who praise Allah and they knew his status.

00:50:37--> 00:51:13

These are just some of the things when it comes to the creed of Omar Abdulaziz. And Hamza in the book that we have translated into English as a from a blessing of a loss of power that we have, instead of books, the life of Omar Abdulaziz, which we're going to go into detail tomorrow, inshallah Tada. And of course, we have, there's a complete section which talks about the creed of disease, and how he dealt, for example, different sex, how he dealt with the Kolodziej, how he dealt with the Maggio, how he dealt with them where it is Isla, Rafi, the Shia, all these different groups. And in the book, it's very beneficial as well, because he breaks down for you some of the

00:51:13--> 00:51:36

belief of each of these groups and how it started and what are their main beliefs and what have you. So you can go back to that in the book and shut up. I was if I go into that here now. We're going to have a course tonight and of course tomorrow, inshallah, the objective obviously, is just to give us an idea and to remind ourselves of the importance of studying and understanding the creed of the Senate, once you understand how they believed and how they understood

00:51:37--> 00:51:42

how we should understand our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. It makes it clear for us.

00:51:44--> 00:51:56

And Omar, Abdullah zz some special status to everybody. Everybody from oma, everybody loves Omar Abdulaziz. So when we study history and how he believed in we see, it's the same thing that all of the early scholars and early imams used to believe in.

00:51:58--> 00:52:06

This is something that increases us and our knowledge and holding firm to the correct copy them. And what is important as a one is I want to end with this. Is that

00:52:07--> 00:52:32

under understanding the way and how to understand the correct copy them, many times we study it more as a way of knowing what is correct. And knowing that which is not correct. What is the correct Arpita. And knowing what is the wrong copy that and refuting this app either. Now this might be important to know, but it's not the objective. What is the main objective of knowing the right app either the cryptography there?

00:52:36--> 00:52:37

What's the main objective?

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

What?

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

Ah, living by and practicing by

00:52:48--> 00:52:55

this whole thing we mentioned now is this examples. But the objective is the implementation of the athlete and to practice and to live by.

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

And the story we told today on the member in the hood bump,

00:53:01--> 00:53:05

mind map that azeez with the lantern who remembers the story?

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

You guys prayed somewhere else? I don't know.

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

They're the one who belonged to oma. When he was doing the official work for

00:53:20--> 00:53:24

he added on when they start asking what his personal life he turned it off and turn to another one.

00:53:26--> 00:53:31

He said because this is the money of the oma, this is my personal age this what made him do that

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

is aqidah the last panel was Allah is going to hold him accountable for his actions. The last panel Matata, sees what he's doing, that the angels are writing down his deeds, and they're gonna be put in front of he's gonna be held accountable for them. Yokohama is the IP that action how used to deal with people justly, even those who

00:53:57--> 00:54:07

were negative towards him or did bad things to him how he was good to them and return. All of this is because of the IP the implementation of the IP the understanding the correct IP that

00:54:08--> 00:54:48

is important. Knowing that was contradicts It is important. But the key thing is that we put into action, knowing that a loss of power Tada, here's what we here's what we're saying. He sees what we're doing. That's what stops us is the reality of the tableau. Knowing that loss of power without us could be that he is both seen. There is Allium He knows everything. So power wattana he sees what we're doing this implementing it, not just knowing the law has beautiful names and attributes, that the people have been there. They deny these names and attributes, the people or bidder, they say Allah as we see only seven attributes that we affirm to a law, the rest, we distort the meanings.

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

This is knowing this is a knowledge is important to know what is correct. But what's really important is to be able to implement this and to put it into action. And a lot of his best solo album was solo selama botica.

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

Amina Mohammed

00:55:02--> 00:55:02

insha Allah.

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

I don't know if

00:55:10--> 00:55:11

you have a few other session.

00:55:14--> 00:55:15

If you want to ask any questions, go ahead.

00:55:25--> 00:55:26

Don't we have it tomorrow?

00:55:37--> 00:56:20

Fifth hurry. For me, I think literally the fifth Khalifa is has enabled it, because he's the one who came right after him. And as we mentioned the hadith of Safina or the loved one, which came to the Muslim of Mr. Mohammed, who mentioned the hook, but today that he said that he laughed at him, Omar will be 30 years. So you add up each one, it comes up to 39 in some months, about about six months or five months. And then when you add on the hell out of it hasn't been added for after his father or the law known at the time, where he turned it over to Maui or de la one. It's exactly 30 years. So therefore, he's the fifth of the Oliver Why do people call on him and halifa

00:56:22--> 00:56:52

elcom is welcome the fifth halifa because he implemented Islam 100% just like, those four calibers are those five calibers and especially when it came to the way of his grandfather armor on top? And that's why even some of them said and when they went to Benny omiya, who we're gonna see tomorrow, they will come they complained about him because he took all of their assets and their their things away from them. And one of the things that is one of them said to him later, they say you're the one who married from

00:56:53--> 00:57:05

the daughter or the granddaughter of Bob, it's your fault. And now it's coming back to you because you're married from them. So now he's come back to his grandson being just like him. So that's that's the meaning of it.

00:57:13--> 00:57:15

We have a whole session towards the end for questions. If anybody

00:57:17--> 00:57:17

does.

00:57:20--> 00:57:34

Come on, it's gonna be their main event. It's gonna be story night, the golden era, the life and times of disease, and that's going to be from 5:30pm to 10:30pm an evening of inspiration for the whole family. So inshallah
