Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah. This is our first lesson and the explanation of the book as Shimon Muhammadiyah by Imam a Tirmidhi Rahim Allah Tala, and this lesson is going to be a daily lesson during the blessed month of Ramadan, and hamdulillah what we finish during these 29 or 30 days, hopefully we will finish most of it, and then we can continue after Ramadan on a weekly basis, inshallah till we finish it entirely. Inshallah Tada. And today's lesson is going to be introduction about why we chose this book, what we gain who's going to benefit from studying this book. And also, we're going to look into
this book, the book itself and what the book contains.
The name is Shemaiah and mohammedia. What is this? What does this mean, when you have a Shamal? Hammond mohammedia.
The word shemail. linguistically, it's the plural of Shimelle. And it means the opposite of the right. And it goes back to the meaning of different nature and meat and matters. And the technical or the Islamic meaning of this word is the Hulk, enemy, the physical features,
and the Hulk the manners of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So when you talk about the Shemaiah, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were talking about both his physical as physical features and also his manners. Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And the scholars added certain things to the Shemitah you're gonna see in the book, inshallah the added talking about his clothes, how he used to dress, the dishes used to eat from the bed that he used to sleep on his ring Island, Salatu was Salam, he sought his camera, all of these things, the scholars add it to the Shamal. And so it's part of the CRO of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But you see from the definition
right away the difference between the Sierra and between the shemail. The Shamal is part of the Sierra, but an instrumental mentioned in the car itself. But the Sierra is much broader. The Sierra itself is very detailed, and all aspects of his life, and his battles and all of those things mentioned in the seat of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is everyday life, all of those things are mentioned the CheMin we're focusing more on his physical features at least salatu salam, how he used to dress and all of that, and his manners is holo Ali Salatu was Salam. We'll look at the importance of studying the shemale
and obviously Ramadan being the month of the Quran hamdulillah we're adding to it the issue of studying the CRO along with the Tafseer during this blessed month. The importance of studying this shemale is that Allah subhana wa Taala commanded us to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he told us that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is our todo el Hassan and that he is our role model Ali Salatu was Salam. Therefore, if we truly want to be able to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have to know in detail about his life, la salatu salam ala carte, Kerala, la computer Sula, he also to hustle a lot also know Quran Yeah, the beautiful role model,
the prime example in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, therefore studying his life in detail, we need to look into that to be able to follow Him and to be truly from his followers. Alayhi Salatu was Salam. There are some issues with the common Ishmael issue of clothing and you say is this something really that it's active worship or not that you get agile from if you act upon it or not? And he for example, you talk about his hair is too slow. If you grow your hair long do you get reward for this some of the things we're going to cover also the type of clothing if you dress like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the scholars have a solo soon and they went into detail on
these on these issues to discuss
discuss is this actually from the Sunnah meaning and it's from the Sunnah he did it but is it from the Sunnah, that's from his customs and the people of the country during that time. They dress like this. They had long hair, he had long hair. So is it just the same that he was doing like the people of his country? Or if we do it, do we get rewarded for it and Showalter will discuss that in detail. As we go through these lessons in shallow Tara.
There have been many books written about the shemail and there's different ways that the scholars write about the Shema L
the main two ways are obviously making an individual book just about the Shamal of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this is the book we have with us here written by Imam attorney like this other books, your books that are in we said sometimes you'll find it in the Xero books but you have other books of syrup that have the C or the in general and then they have a section about the CheMin and this is what Eman even Cathy of did if you go back to his zero book l fosu.
If you see talks in general and detail about the Syrah and then it comes to the end he has a section about the Shemaiah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
when you look into Imam at Timothy we all know that he's very famous for being one of the six scholars of Hadith and we'll talk a bit about him in a minute inshallah and he has a famous book which is known as Al jammer. This is the proper name actually he named it as l jam and Jeremy is combines a lot of different things in one but we know that as the Sunnah as the Sunnah of Imam at Timothy, the other books, you have the Sunnah of albedo, the Sunnah of Viva magia and the Sunnah of a mom and a say. So the name Sunon was widespread of these books. And they made the edit the mama told me that with him as one of the four Sunon so what do you call the Sunnah of the German? This is
the name of his book. And when you look into the the differences, obviously,
or a question that comes are the books because the gym is a is a huge book, whereas the Shemitah is a small book. So the the Hadith that are in the shimira, they end the Jama and the answer is that most of them are not you'll find some perhaps that are here and there. But any obviously he wrote that for a reason. And he wrote the other book for another reason. So you might find some of the Hadith there, but not all of them. Also one of the main differences between the books, as you'll find in the gem male or the Sunnah, and that he
comments in quite frequently in detail in his book, The Sunnah, or the jaaneman. Whereas in the CheMin, he comments very briefly, sometimes he does, but most of the time he doesn't. So you'll find will read 1015 Hadith, and you won't find any comment. And then eventually he'll come after that. Rahim Allah Tala. So there are comments, but not like in his book, The Sunnah, or the German?
Why did we choose to read this book? This is very important. Why did we choose to read this book, first of all, it's a book from the CEO of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we read the scene of the province of psyllium. We read it, to get the baraka and the blessings and read it to learn and to be able to act upon it, but Hamdulillah. So also, we want to go back to the traditional way of learning. And not just any, a lot of times you see myself especially I give a lot of small reminders, I give an im, I give it a topic, I may give a course, and a more modern approach, you know, with a PDF or something like that, and, and a PowerPoint, which I think is very
good, very beneficial. But keeping that traditional way of learning the way our scholars taught us the way we learned, I think that's very important. And that's something that almost missing, so we want to revive that. And shuttle Donna. And obviously during these days, all of us we have a lot of free time. So be able to sit down at the study of book, this will be very beneficial for all of us in Chautala. And this book in particular,
are scholars from antiquity, Mama, Timothy, he's from the early scholars of Islam, and the scholars from his time all the way into our time, they focused on this book, and that shows us the importance of this book, even I studied it, one of the scholars who taught me in Medina. So this book is a very important book The scholars have paid attention to when you look into the book, and it's not that long, the book, it's only 415 Hadith. And in some different any copies of the book, you might find a bit more a bit less, because depending on the person who was copying the book that he make this as one Hadith or make it as two, but the general copies that we have is for 15. And by the way, those
of you are filing with us online, you can find the link inshallah we'll put it in the description below, and the ones who are on YouTube with us, we'll put it in the comments
on the comments on Facebook and on YouTube and shadow Tana, you can or you just got asuna.com and you see on the front page, this is the Shemitah Muhammadiyah. And you can follow with us there and Shanell Donna.
This book, like we said has 415 heartbeats and 56 chapters, the first chapters, the first chapter talks about the features of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the last chapter chapter 56, talks about seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
meaning seeing him in your dream. And obviously this is possible and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he told us that whoever sees me then barely has seen me, but because she cannot imitate me. So if you see the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and there's a very high status, may Allah subhanaw taala bless us all to be from those who see our beloved Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
So he started off with the features of the provinces LM and I'm gonna give you this a quick breakdown of the chapters and how when I want you to focus with me on something because
some of the scholars mentioned is something very interesting and how he started with what he started with and how he ended what he ended with. Rahim Allah Tada. So he started with the first seven chapters talking about the features of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the next 11 chapters talked about his clothing, Ali salatu salam, and then the next few chapters, the next five chapters, talk about his movements and how he used to walk and what have you. And then the next day
Chapter is talking about his food and his dishes what he used to eat in. And then after that there's one chapter about his perfume, and a salatu salam. And then as well as you see the chapters and he mentioned something and something amazing, just just stay with me for a minute,
the next five chapters about and how he spoke, how he lived, etc, then a chapter about his sleep. And then a chapter about his worship at least salatu salam, his prayers, his prayers in the house,
his reciting of the Quran is fasting. And then a chapter about his his bed. The next three chapters cover his humbleness, his noble character, his habits, and his modesty, la salatu salam. And then you have a chapter about his hijama His names as living we used to live on a salatu salam, his age, that his death and the legacy and what his legacy were left behind. And then the final chapter, chapter 56, is seeing the profits that Allahu alayhi wa sallam in a dream. And two very interesting things as you are reflecting with me on the topics that we're going to be covering in the book.
The first thing is
the fact that there's so much detail, you're going to see the detail when I mentioned some, even the amount of gray hairs used to have an SBR laser term, you're never going to find
anywhere throughout history, the focus that the companions had on describing everything about our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
you'll never find anywhere in the world, someone in their biography that has this much detail, and all that goes back to the love that the companions had for our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The other thing that we gain is that some of our scholars mentioned that he mama Timothy Rahimullah when he mentioned
all of these features and attributes and the way he lived and the way he dressed and all of these things, and then he comes to the end about seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in
in your dream, that this is a way to remind us that if you truly want to be from the followers and you want to see your beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam your dream, then you have to be from those who follow Him. And if you truly follow me to love him that Allah is going to open up for you the way to see him in your dream Subhanallah so it was one of the things that the scholars mentioned about the way he started and ended his book Rahim Allah Tala, there's many explanations have been written about the Shema L,
all of them in Arabic not only in in English, but just to mention some of them.
Asha often was saying he left him in a shemale by even Hajer l hate me even harder to hate me. And even harder to hate me is not even Hajer Alaska learning the famous one who gives explanation of say, buhari, he died me over 100 years after him the same name as even hydro Bunnell hated me and that Alaska, Alaska, Lonnie, and you have also another book called gem alpha and Fisher Shemaiah. And will ally alkhoury. Also remember now we had a book and one of our shifts
from this time who wrote a book or shakes up the circle, but also has a book explaining this mastermind. Remember Tirmidhi Rahim Allah. There's also a famous abridged version
of the Shemaiah that Sheikh Khalid abahani Did Chevelle Barney and he wants to accomplish several things, the main thing he wanted to accomplish, he said, first of all this book is that the general people need it. And if you go back to the Arabic version of it, you're going to find that it has had death and death, and it has the it's not the chain of narration, it makes it a bit long. So the general people or that students have knowledge, that not really concerned with that part of the Hadith, they want to know the text itself, so that what they can learn they can act upon it. So he took away the SN Eid, and also he focused on some of the Hadith that he felt were like they were not
authentic. And the amount of Hadith that he put into the book, taking off the Hadith shadowbanned he felt to be live to be weak, it came into being 352 Hadith. So you have 415 Hadith, originally, the shift but the other ones were die if he took them out and left 352 So you do the math and you see how many of the Hadith that the chef thought well we can show to Allah and we'll mention any the chef's opinion will become to those Hadith and the opinion of other scholars of Hadith as well, to end Inshallah, today's session quickly, just to mention some interesting things about your mama Timothy. He is from the land of a tournament
or tournaments, which is in the southernmost part of Uzbekistan today, and it's near the border crossing an Afghanistan so it's in that region. He was born in 209 and died in 279. And he's one of the Famous Five authors of the six books. There's something very interesting about this. I'm going to save it though Inshallah, for the next episode Inshallah, to at the beginning, and we'll mention one of his main students
In that episode as well because we don't want to go too long, we want each episode to be any no longer than 15 minutes might be a bit less, but we don't want it to be longer. So we'll make sure that we stop here and Chantal and we'll continue, like we said during the month of Ramadan everyday in general Tana will be going through this book, live here on Facebook, also my brothers and sisters on Instagram so that money comes to all of you may Allah bless all of you who are following with us, and we're filming Inshallah, on Facebook as well on YouTube, so Inshallah, once we finish everything will upload it on YouTube as well. In short, hopefully inshallah was beneficial. If you have any
questions during the lessons, put them in the comments below, and I will answer them and shuttle Tana in the beginning of the next session in shallow data, which is coming off here on Wilbarger vehicle was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
