And throughout the course of these ahaadeeth, we've touched upon this issue, many, many times from the characteristic of the Muslim is
that he or she has to struggle to be balanced in all of the affairs that he that we took for an example. He says a lot while he was sending them. Habiba. kohonen Ma, I sing your khumba, Yeoman, Matt,
love the person who you love and love them moderately. Because the day may come with that individual becomes your enemy, and hate the person who you hate your enemy, hate and moderately, because the day may come when that person becomes someone who you love. So in explaining that Heidi from the book, it clearly tells us to be balanced in our love to be balanced and don't go overboard, and your love for people or overboard and your hatred for people because if you do that, you won't be able to stay fair, just an in the middle. We have just now pre sold out the mother and then pregnant mother, we make dua to Eliza gentle guidance to this serrata who stepped in and they stood out the monster
came is the way that is balanced, it's in the middle, not too far, this way as the yahood when worshiping Allah, having knowledge, but not working by what they know. And then the other extreme is worshiping Allah without any knowledge as the Christians did and do, but guide us to the setup and Stuckey. Those people that Allahu taala He bestowed his fame was upon them. So I wanted to touch upon something in today's class as a continuation of this topic, from the Muslim personality is struggling, making efforts to be balanced. Don't talk too much. Don't sleep too much. Don't work too much. Don't be an individual who goes overboard in your affairs. But especially when it comes to the
issue of love and hate. Don't go overboard.
And Imam Hamad bin Abdul Wahab Rahmatullahi wa Taala Allah and he and the book keytab to he brought the chapter of how Lulu going overboard. This is one of the ways that Benny Adam started to make Schick as a result of going overboard being too excessive in your love for someone or too excessive in your hate for someone. It prevents you from being fair. It prevents you from being just Eliza azzawajal commandment in the Quran when I get your reminder come Shanna and Coleman and Atlanta ideal ideal who are Acropolis taqwa. Don't allow a people who you have enemies you have enmity
animosity towards them, between you and them the problems, don't allow those problems to prevent you from being fair and just be fair, and just this is closer to a tough one. Anyway, a week ago or so,
I think everybody heard of the death of the former leader of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, referred Allahu Lenin when the whole warahmatullahi tyna. And he was he,
he died. I'm not here to talk about how he died. I don't know, that's not really my issue. My issue is addressing two points. One point is how we have people in personalities going too far overboard, in their love, too far overboard in their hatred. And both of those ways, both of those ways are oppressive, and both of those ways are rejected in the religion. It is no secret that Hamid merci Rahmatullahi la he was from the leaders of the one must be mean, no, no, no, no doubt about that. So when he became the leader, the group that one must mean, they finally got one of the main things that they go after, and that is the courtesy and the chair of rule. So as a result of that, mainly
people who are from that group, they go overboard in him establish that he has gotten the Shahada, he was killed. He died as a Shaheed as a martyr. And as going overboard, if you're saying that a person is a Shahid, and you're stating that emphatically and not from the Bab of Rajab, maybe the person says that he's a Shahid but he hopes he's a Shaheed. But we find that's not what many of people say when they what they mean when they say that. People go overboard and say he is a Shaheed, and he got the Shahada. And it is from our religion, as we mentioned many times, that we do not put anybody in the paradise. We don't put anybody in the Hellfire, specifically, except if we have some
delille. So we don't have any deal. So we shouldn't allow our love for that man, to make us go overboard and to say things like that. People became upset as well. If there was a Masjid that didn't pray this a lot of the highly selective janazah for the one who's not present, some people got upset if this ministry chose not to pray over him, there was people from our community who start to criticize you for not doing that. Like why wouldn't you make this a lot of the heart of the janazah for the man, and he did all he did. So we want to touch upon that as well. Extreme Love is a problem and extreme hate is a problem. I know some people who are under men hedges sarahfey, from
shields and the students who, because of their hatred for the ones we mean, they came
in, right? They also go overboard hatred, to the point where they allowed and they encouraged people to make horloge against Muhammad mercy, when we No, no, we don't mean hold against the leaders in Al Islam. If they are Muslims, we don't make holdrege against leaders in Al Islam, if they're establishing the salaat. And when we do make hirogen Ls land, because that person has shown clear disbelief, and the community has the ability to do it. But because people's hatred for the man, and for that group, they would talk bad about them, and they would encourage people to make and that is not fair. That's not just it's not fair. It's not just but I have to be balanced. So what I wanted
to do today, based upon the many questions that came about this a lot of
there's a lot of janazah over a person who has died in another country is an issue that the scholars of Islam have if the left concerning it. And as we mentioned all the time. If the issue has the life, you kind of relaxing, you have to come down, and you can't love and hate your brother Muslim based upon these issues. He does roughly the same. And he doesn't do roughly again so you hate him. He says I mean, and this one says he doesn't say I mean so you hate him. This one reads Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim before he reads in fact the eye and you don't so you hate them and he hates Shu. This is not the way Muslims should exist between ourselves that these types of fifth issues these
jurisprudence issues should cause us to hate one another. And this is one of those issues as well, although it's really important issue. scholars of Islam took four positions concerning so that
You'll know exactly what we're talking about. We're talking about today, what is the ruling of praying the janazah over a person who is not right here, right here in front of us when we pray? What is the ruling concerning that? The scholars took four positions in this issue four positions. The first position is the position of those scholars who said it's not permissible. If the person is not in front of you, then you can pray. So lots of janazah over that person who's absent. And that was the position of an Imam Abu hanifa, and an Imam Malik Rahmatullahi, tanana, Hema, if that body is not there, then you should not pray janaza over them is haram, something you shouldn't do. And
they knew about the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he was visited by jabril. And jabril informed him that the ninja sheep from Ethiopia, who when the first Muslims Mahendra from Mecca to Ethiopia than the joshy welcomed them and gave them protection. So Ibrahim or jabril came until the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that the ninja she had died. And no doubt then the Joshua was a Muslim. Because he clearly said to the Muslims, when he heard about prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa it was sending them. He told them that I believe him. He's a messenger from Allah. And if he would have come here, I would have meet him our goal and I would wash his feet or
our kisses feet. But he was afraid for his people. And he hid his Islam. He was afraid of losing his chair is rude. So in the Hadith is Islam. So the Prophet told that people saw the light inside of them, your brother, then the joshy has died. So let's get up and let's pray. So they pray salaat janazah over him and his body was in there, those imams Abu hanifa and Ultima Malik said that that action was something that was only for the Prophet sallallahu It was said that it was hard, only for him. Like the issues that only he can do, like marry more than four women. Like suddenly love while he was sending them could fast days on end without taking support. And without doing if thought then
maybe you sell them law while he was sending them was allowed to do things that other people were not allowed to do. They said this is from those things only he could do that. So that's the first position. The second position of the Marvel Islam is that it is permissible to praise a lot of janazah for a person who was not there no matter what. Like right now we want to pray Sonata Genesis, someone has a relative who's in synagogue, someone has a relative who's in near poor. He's in some other part of the Muslim world. And then we I mean, and we find out about it right now. We're going to get up and we're going to pray Sonata janaza over him move to LA you can do it
whenever, however. And that was a position of an Imam Shafi Rahmatullahi LA. You said this is from the Bab of what I would like to better be with taqwa, cooperate with each other in righteousness, and in fearing Allah. So we have a scholar in Al Islam, although I may disagree with an Imam Shafi his position here, if someone came up and he took that position, you have to take it easy. Because if you say to that person, you want to do innovation, and you are an innovator, and you love innovations, and you don't like the sun none, then those same words have to be applied to an Imam Shafi. That person is practicing something that some of the scholars took that position.
So that's the second position of those are the AMA and Imam Shafi said open ended you can pray, if the body is not here, you can pray no problem.
But third position and honey are those scholars who said that you can pray over a person whose body is not here. If that individual happened to be a religious person, he was a scholar. He was a person who was rich, and he spent feasibility law a lot of Southern thought it was an individual who has an iconic personality, everybody knows him. Everybody loves him for an example, a person who's in Mujahid fie sabini like, they said for this person, if he dies somewhere else, you can mix a lot over this individual. And they use as a hadith what happened with the Prophet sallallahu and he was sending him and his companions roughly alone, and Jemaine there was a lady and Mariah tune, so she
was a black lady. As the people describe her. She used to clean the masjid. That was her job. So the Prophet salallahu it was setting them and showing his humility
And is concerned for the community acts that people was that lady I haven't seen that lady around for some time. They say she died yet also law yesterday. She died and we all pray just as over home we buried the body. He told the people on the law what he was sending them, come on, let's go. So they all left is Miss Jayden. They went to the muck butter at the pier, and he pray salata janazah over her, and she was in the grave, and the people pray behind the Nabi sallallahu it to send them they made two lines, and they prayed over her. So they a lot of benefits from that particular idea. Now is that time to go for all those benefits, but from the benefits is that his sooner is when
people go missing, you should start to ask Where is so and so and where is so and so. Because this lady, she probably was not the most significant lady in the whole community. But she didn't go missing under the radar of the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him It also goes to show the permissibility of praying the janazah over someone who's in the ground at the Mk Bara. So we as Muslims, we don't pray in the grave. That Prophet says Allah Why do you send them that to salute? obor I told you this Why
don't pray towards graves and don't sit on graves. So here we have a situation with an A B of Islam sallallahu it was sending them pray the saliva janazah in the graveyard and the person was buried. So it shows the permissible love So lots of janazah as for praying for us and murdering Russia, in a graveyard, surrounded by graves is something that should be avoided altogether. Shem pray in the month of Ramadan. As for the janazah he did it sallallahu it was said the reason why we're mentioning this hadith is because it shows that the nebby sallalahu. It was sending them heard that the lady had the janazah the day before. And now he went and he prayed on her a second time because
he missed the first janessa. So she was a woman of virtue, what's the virtue, she was cleaning the mess.
She was the lady who was cleaning the mess. So from the benefits of that Heidi is the benefit of people who are those who take care of the massage it aligns with gel. Those people who are the custodians of Ally's houses. So this lady was cleaning the mess shape. When she died, Prophet Mohammed Southern lady was setting them stood up, and he prayed for her so that people like us, when we see something like that we come to know from his actions, it is highly recommended and highly virtuous for a person to clean up the masjid or to do whatever you can possibly do in order to help maintain the messages cleanliness, we are there in Liverpool, that brothers playing soccer makes
over 150,000 pounds a week. When he got more money for his contract, he went and he wanted to think allies which he went to the masjid at Dasa time when there are not a lot of people. And he started cleaning the toilets of the masjid on his own. But because we're people, we don't know how to handle celebrity when people came in, and they saw him, they took videos of it. And they sent it all out when the man was trying to do it under the radar with lots he didn't want people to know about it. The point is, we asked a lot to accept that from him making $150,000 pounds a week. And then you're going to do that that's a sign of a person who understands this kind of idea with that lady, read
the law. So that's the third position if it is a important person. And now today, this important person has become a person of politics.
So if it's a politician, then the people will pray over him. But who can say who's important and not important. So that's the third position, Ambassador position of lmm at MIT, and others and shares of Islam, a chef and bears had that position. I remember when we used to live in Saudi Arabia, anytime one of the leaders of the Saudi Arabian ruling family if one of them die in a rehab, we were praying a lot of janaza in Mecca and Medina, we remember that. And that was the position of Shackleton bass. Some people used to say, they're just doing that, just because they're scared of those rules and so forth and so on. We don't talk about people like that. That's in the middle half of the handle is
that mm admins position? based upon that Hadith? Allah didn't make you responsible for asking and getting to come to the answer. Did the person do it with sincerity? Why is he doing that? That's the position of the people when they met him. So take it easy, you don't agree with that. You don't agree with it. So don't pray. Just go keep going.
The fourth position and the final position has
The one that I perceive as being the position of the truth is that those scholars who said
you should not and you cannot pray over the body of a person who they prayed over his body somewhere else. And to pray over his body, again is something that should be avoided altogether. Like in the case of Mohammed, merci Ratna to leahlani, he was prayed over in Egypt for an example.
And that's because when we look at the issue of the Ninja, she robbed the Allahu anhu wa who he was, as we mentioned, in a country if the opia Abyssinia surrounded by non Muslims, so when he died, no one prayed over him, and the saliva janaza his photo ki fire, some people have to do it. And if some people do it, the responsibility will be taken off of everybody else. But if no one does it, the whole oma is centered. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed over him, and that was it. So if a person dies somewhere, and they didn't have a janazah prayed over him, then it becomes four key fire for some people to pray over him. In this case, it is permissible in this case, and as
because as I mentioned, then a joshy. Also, when we look at the companions, or of the Alon, whom, when abubaker, Mr. Othman and Ali, and when those companions died, we don't hear other companions in the Muslim world at that time, we don't hear them making janazah over Abu Bakar people were in a sham, people were in Egypt, people were living in different parts of the Muslim Empire. We don't hear them making a lot, a lot of the janaza for the absent person, when it happened to Abu Bakar amount of man and Ani and the rest of them if this was something that was from the Sunnah, then clearly those companions, me allies will be pleased with them, they would have held on to this
issue, they would have practice it. Another very important point one and one of the reasons why we are in opposition to this is because it opens up the door for what I will call social hypocrisy, and that
someone who occupies a powerful position or someone who is a well known personality, may be a person into sports or celebrity, whatever Muslim. When that person dies, we want to pray this a lot of janazah over him. Okay. There's a Miskin person who comes from Bangladesh from Senegal, from Gambia, someone comes from Mauritania, someone comes from Nigeria, some miski Muslim comes from Sri Lanka, wherever.
He's not well known by the people. But it comes in he says, you know, back in Sri Lanka, my uncle, he built 10 miles. And all of those months, they helped over 1000 kids to memorize the Koran. So I want to make solid janazah over my uncle here. But then I say, no, we're not going to do it. We're going to do it for the people come from our village, we're going to do it for the people who started this Masjid, we're going to do it for the people give money to the masjid, we're gonna give it to those people will do it for those people. And in fact, that man who came from Bangladesh, he may be better than all of the people you're doing it for,
for all of the people that you're doing it for. So I remember that the Imam in Mecca as soon as his father died as today's because of Sudan exposition. People want to do this a lot of janazah because that was his father. Okay, what about his father and his father and his father's father. So if we open up that door, for one person, if we open up that door, we should open up that door for everybody. And clearly, if we open up that door for everyone, it's going to become confusion. Because every day somebody's dying. After every prayer, we're gonna have a lot of janazah for the apps in person because someone's dying every single day. So we say, close the door on everybody,
close the door for everybody, no exceptions. If a person dies somewhere, and he gets this, a lot of janessa prayed over him, just leave it like that. And that's it. And we don't have to deal with all of the other things that come as a result of taking the different positions. But in saying that, I want to make it clear that you know, acknowledge it is an issue of if the last if a person chooses not to do it. Don't you come and say it's because he doesn't like the man. He's not is against the group. Don't be Don't say that. That's his position and as his position. All right, so this will want to deal with that as it relates to that issue of the Select of the janazah. You guys have any
Say it again.
Java ideal is a science that is connected to the sciences of Allah Hadith in which the scholars of Islam who were
better than most other scholars, they were more specialized. They would talk about the different narratives and criticize them or praise them. And Emmanuel Buhari, an Imam Muslim, and among
these people used to say about the narrator's This one is weak in memorization, this one is a liar. This one is strong in his memorization, this one over here he narrates and so on, and so it's weak and that one over here if he narrates, after he lost his books, we don't accept his narration. That is the science of adjara with tideal people criticizing and praising different narrators to determine whether or not a hadith is authentic or not authentic. And with the consensus of the scholars of Hadith, it is the single most complicated and difficult aspect of the science of Hadith no one in his right mind will jump into that arena and he has his right mind with him
so we have people today from the people of Hulu and Sally fear those people over there who have jumped into this arena and has created a lot of confusion a lot of confusion for them now and confusion for people before because they will understand and them and the shares is that just what ideal is only applicable to the people just told people this in office and so that's what just what ideal is my main any more questions that
anybody got any water? Anybody have any water?
All right, then inshallah we're gonna resume this listening next week. You see I had some requests from the members. You can see we have some brothers who are not here two weeks in a row. No matter what inshallah we're going to resume the class next week basically lying. Alright. So now mighty
