What coulomb desert in the attune were called a beta actin bulahdelah to Wakulla polariton fanatee. As for the topic that was chosen to be delivered today discuss today, the importance of the scholars in the position of the scholars in Ellis land and this particular reminder should actually be a reoccurring a mind reminder.

00:01:26--> 00:01:46

Who should deal with this issue the day of their EAD as a topic to be dealt with doing classes like this here and there. Even think that there should be some series where people talk about the importance of knowledge in general. And when you talk about knowledge in Islam, and

00:01:47--> 00:01:55

then you're going to by default, and necessity, you have to speak about your element. And the position and the police have the right.

00:01:56--> 00:02:38

We're living in a culture right now. The culture that we live in, where everybody thinks that his opinion means something. And the person doesn't look at the scholar, the way Ellis lamb is telling people to look at the scholar with the internet, social media, everyone feels is his right to comment. And because of that culture that we have that we're living in, a lot of the times the scholar, he's not appreciated. He's not even known. There may be an individual who is a good team.

00:02:38--> 00:02:54

He's an effective team gives a nice hook but he gives a nice lesson. The community because of the culture will raise that individual up. And they will even look at him as being a scholar when in fact he's a daring to fitna and Miss shakin.

00:02:56--> 00:03:26

This is the culture that we live in. And many of the masajid there is a culture inside of the masjid where there's no respect for the authority of the masjid. And from the authority of the masjid are the people that have been placed in that Masjid in order to teach. So what happens is you will find the Imam if he tells people to straighten up the roles and so forth and so on. He told someone don't be in a row with your young child that hasn't doesn't have a duel between you and another person,

00:03:26--> 00:03:57

you're breaking the row instead of him respecting what the Imam is saying because it's coming from the keytab and the Sunnah. He'll say I'm doing what I want to do you just mind your own business. This is the culture. So the revival Islam during this time, a lot of people have lost the respect and the way Islam is commanded us to look at them. That's one issue one challenge one problem. The other side of that coin, are the people go overboard in the arena man with no lemma.

00:03:59--> 00:04:08

The way that Benny Adam started to make shift can cover the only sin that Allah doesn't forgive

00:04:09--> 00:04:46

the way that they fell into that was through righteous people, and celebrating righteous people and venerating them. As we've mentioned in a number of doodles here that the righteous men who were with nor are doing that time when they died, that people may erected constructed statues on their behalf. And as a result of that, they used to remember the goodness from those people but then, when they die, their children came and shaytaan Qing to their children and told their children, your parents

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

used to worship these statues. And then they started to worship those statues that fit and then that problem came as a result of people going overboard and righteous people and from the righteous people are the lemma

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

So to extremes we have to avoid not knowing the heft of the scholar and the person going overboard with the scholar right now.

00:05:09--> 00:05:46

Many people claim a connection to the Sunnah, that they're on the Sunnah and trying to practice the Sunnah. We've seen in the culture that we're living in today, that even those people go overboard. So it's an issue that everybody is open to falling into. Don't go overboard. There's a particular scholar that I like, for an example, a chef side and frozen for an example. And going overboard in him I say something like, the ODR of Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Yet, if a shear Seidel Fosun is not a

00:05:46--> 00:05:50

Willie from the OD of Allah, then Allah doesn't have any odia

00:05:52--> 00:06:26

That's going overboard no matter how much I love that shift and no matter no much how much no matter how much Houston I'm gonna have about that share? How can I say that? When the book of Allah who time is clear with that two second fossa come who are the movie men and taka? Don't you guys you people praise one another Allah knows best who has a tequila from the soul of a set if here from the soul that that people used to be upon as it relates to being upon the Minaj of Adam hadith is that

00:06:26--> 00:06:46

we don't put anyone in the paradise without a proof. And we don't put anyone in the Hellfire without a divine proof. We don't put anyone behind me he someone specific. We're going to say this brother is in Jannah we're not going to say that. We're going to say we hope that he's in gender. I hope that I'm in Jannah hope that all of us in Jannah

00:06:48--> 00:07:19

and if someone dies we don't say that they're in the HoH fire and say that person is in the Hellfire without dealio so if he's a disbelieve in Allah, then we have a proof that he is in the hellfire. And even in that case, Allah knows best what his situation is. If a Muslim dies on Ellis lamb, we say he's in Jannah. And Allah knows best but to definitively state he's in jana na, you need proof for that for our own Mala. He is in the nod I believe her Bible Jahad will law he there in the

00:07:19--> 00:07:54

Hellfire Musa EC Brahimi smile. Abu Bakr Salawat Allah He was cinammon whining as my aim or love the Allah and all of them are in Jana walking because the delille told us that. So when I come in, I say if a chef or a beer and a chef Simon Fosun if they're not from the OD of Allah, then Allah He Allah doesn't have any old yet. Yeah, actually you went overboard. Because those two people that you mentioned, although we have Hurston a van, we have who's not done. We don't talk about Allah's

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

religion without knowledge similar to that man who said to his brother, will Allah He Allah is not going to put you into the Jannah and Allah won't forgive you and Allah cause him to die. And Allah acts that man the question

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

Who put you in charge of the keys of my Kazaa in my Jana is from my treasures who put you in charge of that to say who's in Jana? Who's a worldly? Who's not a weenie who put you in charge? I asked him the question. Do you know everything about me? How intimate he to be, you know everything about Allah. You don't know everything about Allah to say something like that. Allah has only that you don't know about and that's what happened with Musa the claim of Allah Salawat Allah He was sent on

00:08:39--> 00:09:09

YT but people who said yeah Musa from Benny in Surah L is there anyone more knowledgeable than you? He said there is no one more knowledgeable than me. And Allah Azza joke and form to know we have a servant and he has said that and then Musa went out in search of him. So Musa is the name of Allah getting revelation from Jabrill. Speaking to Allah directly, he met Allah subhanho wa Taala and spoke to Allah Allah spoke to him directly what candidum Allah Who Musa tak Lima, he is called the

00:09:09--> 00:09:38

Kaleem of Allah. And he didn't know that there was someone else who had some knowledge that he didn't have. So he said me based upon what he thought, and then he was informed. No, don't say that. So what about some regular person right now? He doesn't memorize juice. I mean, he doesn't know a lot about illicit and we have to slow down with these emotions stay in the middle. And the reason why I'm giving you this example of a chef, salad Hosanna chakra beat her feather hula is something

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

that I read recently, something I read recently that people send around in this WhatsApp so we have to stay balance. One of the reasons why this issue is important as well and while it is it will allow you and enable you to practice an aspect of your deen that is important it is imperative is important.

00:10:01--> 00:10:39

Wouldn't it be told us Sallalahu it was set in a manlam Yahama Serena, when you worked here to be Rolla, when I'm yeah LM we eliminate Oho. Fillet Samina the one who doesn't have mercy upon our youngsters, our youngsters being gentle with them, and easy with them. And the one who doesn't have respect to our elders and for our elders, the way we deal with them. And the one who doesn't know the right of the scholar, then he's not from us. He's not from the people of Ellis lamb, doesn't

00:10:39--> 00:11:12

mean that he's a calf. It doesn't mean that he's a calf and outside of the realm, or the circle of Al Islam, but what it means is, his SNAM is not as his Islam is mushkil. His Islam is not complete. There's something wrong with his existence as a Muslim like the one who doesn't pray, like the one who doesn't fast like the one who doesn't wear hijab, like the one who has crazy ideas. There. Islam is not complete. So if you don't know, the right of the scholar, then the Prophet says Allah Allahu

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

Allah, he was sending them you're not from us, you are not from those people upon the correct Islam that he brought SallAllahu Sallam and his companions were upon. May Allah be pleased with them in which they respected, acknowledged embrace, and they practice the virtue of the scholar in Islam. So how are we going to treat them right? know their rights if we don't have knowledge about their importance, and what was collected by Imam Bukhari then maybe told us something about Benny and Sua

00:11:45--> 00:12:03

eel Salah Why are you sending them cannot ban Islam Israa eel, your social human NBN Co Luma hella Kana beyond colorful who Nabi Benyus, Raja eel, their prophets were responsible for their CSR for their politics.

00:12:04--> 00:12:41

Every time a prophet would die, another prophet would take his place, they were sent many, many of the NBN and they had that blessing. Our Ummah is not like that. Our Ma, we have virtues over Benny asstra, il minab, for ba l overburden, Israa, eel, many. But they have some things over us, that Allah gave them and he didn't give us will love who you are teaming your shot from what they had over us is at any one given time, they can have three prophets who were on the scene at the same

00:12:41--> 00:13:16

time. And the prophets and messengers came in along secession, a long line of prophets every time one would die, another one would come and he will be responsible for their community. That's not our situation. We have one there being one Rasulullah sallallahu it was said, but he said in an authentic hadith and Ridhima were referred to NBN Allah Allah ma who were referred to NBN the Rola mother scholars, they are the inheritors of the prophets. So with Benny Surah, Al every time a

00:13:16--> 00:13:49

prophet died, another prophet will come with our Allah, I will never be our Rasul Salah Salem die, but he said that Ranima they are the inheritors of the Prophet. So just imagine, we're not going to put an AMA on the same level of the NBI like with what happens Benny asstra Eel, where as soon as we know that there is no prophet after the NABI SallAllahu wasallam. But the people who take his place in his position, so to speak, they are the Anima, not the hotel bar, not the one who's given a code

00:13:49--> 00:14:21

bar, no, the real AMA. Now, no doubt the one who was given a hug. He's playing some role that scholars play, he's playing the role that the Prophet played, so the lady was sending him and addressing the people and giving them direction. So to a certain extent, he has inherited some of that portion. You I'm a bucket, Zayn, Abdullah, when you memorize the Quran, when you learn your religion, you also have inherited a portion of the legacy of the Prophet sallallaahu Sena. And when

00:14:21--> 00:14:51

you teach it to your children, and you give Dawa to it, you're not a scholar, but you are sharing with that legacy. Sharing with the legacy and in the legacy is one thing but when I talk about sharing in the legacy, we're talking about the possessors the inheritance of that legacy, and they are the enemy of Islam. So as a result of that they've been given a high position, and they should be treated a particular way. Because of that, Abdullah animus ruled in his famous statement he said

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

that this ummah will always be in a state of good as long as knowledge comes to them from the Companions read the ally no man from the arena man for

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

Under what if the knowledge doesn't come from the enemy is gonna be a problem? And that's part of the culture of what we're dealing with right now. It says, I you says Boko Haram can either some of these groups these Jamaat that are not as extreme as them, the political groups, there are those people we don't know the position of the dilemma. Look what happened with Benny a surah eel and as a message throughout the Quran, he said Sal, Allahu Allah, he was sending them in a shed the NASCI

00:15:29--> 00:16:01

adapting yomo Qiyamah Roger and cutting an abelian I will cut out of Hoonah beyond the one who was the worst person you'll know piano will get the harshest punishment you'll know piano is a man who killed the Navy, or he was killed by a Nebby that used to happen with Benny asstra Eel left right and center that was part of their culture. And Olivia yuck Faloona be it Lehi, where you're to learn and begin a baby happened way up to Luna lady Maria maroon and NASA below. For the share whom we

00:16:01--> 00:16:11

either had been Aleem will add it can levena Hula levena habitat Amato home for dunya and akhira. Mara whom in our city

00:16:13--> 00:16:47

there's a reoccurring theme in the Quran about the history of Venezuela ill Verily those people who disbelieve in the eye of Allah, and they kill the prophets for no just cause they kill them. And they also kill those people who enjoined the people with justice and to do right. give these people the glad tidings of a grievous Penalty. They are the ones who the ADIZ have been rendered null and void. And in the doing of the accurate, they're going to be punished as serious punishment. That was

00:16:47--> 00:17:21

the way Benny asstra Ill dealt with an AMA and the NBA. They killed the NBA. And then they killed the people who are the AMA from amongst Benny Israa eel. So those two groups were mentioned in this ayat was an indication for us when if we knew the rights of the scholars, we won't find people killing though and Emma has you're sitting right there. Every year for the last few years, these extreme groups and individuals have been responsible for killing people. So you have the kotoge

00:17:21--> 00:17:51

where people may Hirogen a pull out sores and the weapons on the Muslim League and they fight them. And then you have people make the quarrels with the Kadima with the Quran with the Quran, where they talk bad about the leader, and they put enmity and animosity and hatred in the hearts of the people against the leaders creating confusion. Okay, there's a person who kills a scholar. And then there's the person who is Kalam is like killing the scholar. And that is something that is normal here in

00:17:51--> 00:17:57

the UK. We don't have a monopoly on it. But it's normal here in the UK a

00:17:59--> 00:18:33

few years ago, there's a chef from Somalia. His name was Abdulkadir, Farah. They killed that man up in the north of Somalia, a man whose dollar was dollar to toe he dollar to the keytab in the Sunnah Dawa, to unity Dawa to save for the community where he came from, they killed them, when did they kill them and where they killed him in the masjid at Salaat time, is that an individual understands behalf of the cinema. And Yemen in Yemen is a chef, his name is Abdul Rahman. I didn't mean they

00:18:33--> 00:18:50

killed him. Sasanian them shut them up. You have a disagreement, I have a disagreement. And that leads to me murdering you, you murdering me and we just regular people who does that accept someone, something is wrong with him something is wrong with him.

00:18:51--> 00:19:23

And this has been the case in Nigeria. This has been the case in the Muslim world in Iraq and Libya. The brother graduated from Medina as a PhD knowledgeable as a lot of benefit his Dawa in Libya with all of that drama in Libya. The people come in and kill him. And they brag about it and they come out and claim responsibility for it. And they say this is jihad. And they say this is going to establish Ellis lamb Yeah, he you don't know the rights of Lauren Emma, You're crazy. You're crazy

00:19:23--> 00:19:43

person. You can kill a regular person. Now if you kill a young man, something is worse. You kill your father is worse. You kill your mother is worse. You kill a defences of defensiveness, baby, it's worse. And you come you kill a scholar. And then you turn around and you say that that's the religion?

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

No, we have to know the position of the Annamma in Al Islam, because they're not like regular people. They're the inheritors of the NBN. Allah will type I mentioned in the Quran Shahidullah who and know who you are

00:20:00--> 00:20:32

Allahu when Mayra Echo to ca even Bill plus we're all we're all le mi ka Eman bellicosity Allah bears witness to his wife, Danielle, there is no God worthy of worship but Allah He bears witness to that. And he calls them Allah aka to bear witness to that oneness. And he caused those who have been down, but also bear witness. So the AI is talking about the weather man is that talking about the regular on the bucket z from the people you love who levena am and who many common levena O'Toole,

00:20:33--> 00:21:03

Dara jet, those from amongst you who are believed, and all of you believe that hamdulillah Inshallah, those who believe, and those who have been given knowledge, Allah has raised you above everybody else, that's not talking about the team that is talking about the lemma in Ellis land. And their presence amongst the Muslims, is beneficial for the old man for the Muslims. And the absence from the muscles is a problem. For that reason, I'm out of the alignment, I'm not even a cooktop,

00:21:03--> 00:21:33

and other people from the self, they used to say to the people be a scholar, if you can be a scholar, the sky's the limit, who can prevent you from being a scholar, who he said, be a scholar if you can. And if you can't be a scholar than be a student of knowledge. And if you can't be a scholar, a student of knowledge, then love both of them and don't have any animosity and any malice in your heart towards them. Because the ones who have malice towards the red AMA, or the people who

00:21:33--> 00:22:05

are sick, Allah has some of these GEMA. To see, I see these political groups, there are some good people who are part of these political groups. There are good people who are part of these political groups. But one of the big problems with the political groups is they claim on one hand, they want to establish the feet if and the Dola of Al Islam in this religion. But on the other hand, they come with these crazy things and actions like warning the people about scholars, warning the people of

00:22:05--> 00:22:37

our scholars. So those three great mountains during our time, just one of them. And then Ben, when Benny was in Syria when he was in Jordan, the biggest Islamic political group in the dunya. In the Arab world, the biggest one in the dunya. They used to one the followers, don't go listen to him, don't go listen to him. How are you going to establish that and you're telling the people that be apart from the scholars of Islam, just go to the scholar who's on what we're upon this book, these

00:22:37--> 00:23:08

politics, it's going to be the man who will be in a position to guide you people to help you people, but they don't want that. Right now, as I told you, I told you, no one here in shot law is going to kill anybody but even him that no one here is going to make her Rouge and anyone. But again, huddle which can be with the sign it could be with a Kalama. The team, he gets up there. And he starts to talk bad about the administration here and about things that he doesn't like in the administration

00:23:08--> 00:23:35

of any given Masjid. He's encouraging fitna and horloge. So although he has a problem with the people there, let him handle that between him and then you don't come to the community. And you start saying they did this and they do that and this and that, and that, and then you create fold up. You don't do that in the Muslim empire in the world. You don't do that in a man's house. You don't do that in the man's Masjid. You don't do that in the masjid, you handle that pro issue behind

00:23:35--> 00:24:07

the scenes. So now huddled is with the Kelemen murdering the scholars is also with the Kenema. When you tell people you want people like like coming here, scholars for dollars, scholars for dollars, any scholar who is a part of a government, we can't take from him. Okay, which scholar do you take from? What's the measurement? What's the scale you made for yourself? The scale for him is the scholars and I take from on the ones that are in the caves hiding in jihad. So you take from

00:24:07--> 00:24:40

scholars hiding the cave power, they assessable within the caves, doesn't even make sense what you're saying. So we hear this from many of the individuals who are given Dawa here in this country. And as I said many times, Abdullah, if you ever see a man speaking about an Imam, Al Islam, then you have to go the other way. You have to run the other way. He shouldn't have our ears on the member. He shouldn't have our hearts. He shouldn't have any connection. There is a man who died recently.

00:24:40--> 00:24:49

His name is Aman Abdurrahman. Rahmatullah he I knew he was referred Allah who no one know who. This man was accused of doing some things a long time ago.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

He's not a scholar from Lorena motherless lamb. But because of the Dawa, that he used to have there are people who are very, very extremely

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

Emotional and based upon emotions, we determine who's the scholar, and we determine who's not the scholar. And that's not the correct way of doing things. The scholar is the individual who has knowledge of the keytab knowledge of the Sunnah. And he's like what Allahu Taala mentioned in the Quran and this our Houston evaluate them in Amaya Shala. Herman rebored.

00:25:24--> 00:25:36

Those people that fear Allah from His servants are those who are the scholars. So we have to learn about every single scholar, does that mean that the scholars might assume? No, it doesn't mean that

00:25:38--> 00:26:11

I saw with my own eyes, a person who has knowledge, he had his bow, he had his bow. So when you see something like that, you say to yourself, Okay, who am I to judge? First of all, first of all, the shape as a human being, like everybody else is a human being. But now I have to think and look at it a particular way. Because if you know the position of the the scholar, you start to say, maybe this maybe that, maybe he's from those people who feel as long as you don't have Kibber it's permissible

00:26:11--> 00:26:42

to have a smile maybe isn't for most people. So me saying I'm better than him, as me saying, the chef is not qualified and competent as me saying, the chef is outside of the Sunnah. You're an individual who doesn't know the position of the scholar, the scholars, not my assume, and he doesn't deserve to be worshipped, and he doesn't deserve to be obeyed and listened to unconditionally, but he's not like an ordinary individual. Allah mentioned in the Quran, a rhetorical question that

00:26:42--> 00:26:51

doesn't require an answer full hallelujah stone levena Yala Moon Well, Levine, Allah, Allah moon, are they equal? Those who know and those who don't know?

00:26:53--> 00:27:29

No, they're not equal? That's a rhetorical question that doesn't require an answer. No, they're not equal. It's well known that the two of them are not equal. Allahu Taala mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah Quran, I will Amuro an naqt. In non atrophy how do they not see? Do they not see Benny item? How we cause the earth to shrink from the different corners? I asked one of you What's the meaning of that? Is the earth shrink? And what's the meaning of that? If somebody tells me what's the

00:27:29--> 00:27:45

meaning of that is, when you hear it in Arabic or in the translation? Do they not see how we Allah Allah, we cause the earth to become Noctus from its corners from his boundaries.

00:27:47--> 00:28:23

The rhythm of the Sabbath, the rhythm of the Sabbath today, and they took that knowledge from the Sabbath. They said that one of the many meanings of this is is whenever a scholar dies, then the earth is shrinking on the people. Because when the scholar is there, his massive expansive knowledge is going to allow ease for them and enjoyment for the people as it relates to live in this life. When there is ignorance when the ignorance there's going to be restrictions within the lives of the

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

people. So that's one of the many I have the Quran that show the importance of

00:28:29--> 00:29:06

someone acts the great scholar from the tabby 18 Sorry, they've been Jubeir one of the seven fuqaha of an Medina, tremendous individuals a student of Abdullah Bassam, Radi Allahu Anhu. They said, How and when do you know that a people will be destroyed? He said they will be destroyed and you'll know that when they cease to have an AMA from amongst them. So right now in Europe in the West, I personally don't know me. I don't know anybody who is a scholar in the UK.

00:29:07--> 00:29:31

There are some people and admire about the Quran. Some people really know the Quran. Some people I know really know Arabic language. But in Europe in the UK, don't know any real Island island. But nonetheless, we don't say that we don't have any scholars because through communication, the internet, the telephone technology, we're connected to the realm of the dunya.

00:29:32--> 00:29:54

So what do you think about the one who exists? And he has all of this technology, he doesn't even have the language but you're still connected to the Anima. From where you come from? African language, Arabs wherever you come from the scholars who are accessible, and then there's an individual exists along with his friends and her friends in their few little group. And they don't have any Annamma from amongst.

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

They don't have any scholars that they recognize, again, the style that they look

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

going forward is like the MACD of the rafidah, the MACD, they've been waiting to come out of a cave for over 1000 years the MACD of horse fat, he ain't coming out. And if he does come out, he's a false man, he's a digital.

00:30:14--> 00:30:41

So the scholar that the people are waiting for that they manufactured for themselves, a scholar that's in the cave, he's on the run. He's in the prison. This is the scholar. For me. These are the conditions that I set. So the person who is alive in his living and smelling the aroma of knowledge in a dead he's not a dead person, he's alive. He says, Where did you get that description that the scholar is the one who's locked up.

00:30:43--> 00:31:01

Now, it's possible that a scholar can be locked up. But where does it come in the keytab of the Sunni in the life of the people, the style is the one who was locked up. Maybe the one who's locked up is the one who was irresponsible, because he talks about what he shouldn't talk about. So he gets locked up as a result of that, because He is believed

00:31:03--> 00:31:30

he doesn't have apple. The scholar knows how to talk. He knows how to deal with the situations. And even if he stood up for the truth, and he was locked up. They always going to be other scholars. So this is not the way that a person comes to that conclusion. Why did the tabby say Edom and Jubeir Rahmatullahi Tala say that he said that for the same reason that I'm loving him I screwed may Allah be pleased with him said

00:31:32--> 00:31:43

that this OMA will be good and a condition of good as long as the knowledge that comes to them comes from the companions and comes from their own ama not from the Chabad

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

not from the Chabad.

00:31:47--> 00:32:27

Even a bass had been at Mizzou said that Jubeir even say he said that, because that's what the prophet taught SallAllahu I didn't even say God and Allah Ha, la Yun zero Enma Intisar and to zero Humann so Dora NAS when I can Yen's it will be a cup the Redeemer had Dave and M Yep, T Alima. Tucker, the NAS do Harlan row all send you holla he says hola while he was sending them. Allah doesn't snatch the knowledge at one time out of the hearts and the minds and the breasts of the

00:32:27--> 00:33:00

people just doesn't take it out like that. He said, But knowledge is taken out by Allah grabbing and taking the life of the scholar. And then when there doesn't remain any scholars, the people then start to take as the leaders, ignorant people. So those ignorant people, they're asking for fatwas, who they ask him for knowledge. They ask him for instructions and directions. Those ignorant people start to talk and they'll start to get foot towards instructions and directions. So they'll send

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

those people astray. And they themselves will go astray. So that's a clear indication at 20. Amongst the many indications in the deen of Allah azza wa jal that Aruna Ma, Al Islam they have a special role and again, we like to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his method of teaching. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to teach with an FAO giving examples, examples, similar tools so that people can understand what was being said and where he's coming from. He wanted to show for an

00:33:37--> 00:34:09

example and there are many invalid the Quran about 30 to 40. And the Sunni there are many, many, many. The Quran said yeah, you a nice duty by methadone for STEMI level. And then livina turnamen dunlea He Lengyel Loku Baba which terminal level, O mankind, an example of a method has been given. Those who you call on other than Allah, they can't create a fly, even if they all came together to create that fly. Or you said when you met him, whatever you worship, whoever you worship with suit,

00:34:09--> 00:34:39

Allah Azza wa sallam, whoever, whatever. Whatever you worship, they can't create a fly. And if they all came together to create that fly, they won't be able to do it. Allah said the fly is weak and they are weak as well. They don't deserve to be worshipped. So that is a way of Allah saying whatever your worship and other than Allah is baseless. He could have just said his weak baseless, but he gave this example for the people so that you can understand that example. And the Sunnah has

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

more. He mentioned sal Allahu Allah you will send them in metal

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

and nonmetal rain however in a methyl li he he but he can methanol Kal Bolivia route VP. He wants to show us not permissible for a person to give a gift. And then after given the gift to your wife to us

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

Son to your daughter to your friend, something happens you get mad, you argue with your wife, you're gonna get a divorce from your wife. And then at that time you come to him back my Nicklaus to talking about

00:35:11--> 00:35:37

you gave her the necklace as a gift, not a dowry as a gift, necklace, ring, whatever silverware TV you gave, or whatever you gave us. Now you guys get into a problem, and it's going to be a divorce. You tell me that was my thing, give it back. Problem 101. They showed us haram to do that. He could have just said don't do that. But he said the example of the one who gives the gift and then he takes to give back. It's like the dog that bombings and then he licks the vomit back up. So when the

00:35:37--> 00:36:09

Muslim hears that he says, oh, boy, that's a bad thing. It's a bad thing. It is more powerful than just saying, don't take back a gift that you gave. When you tell someone don't be like the dog that vomited, he licked his vomit up. So we like to teach like that, from the sunnah to teach like that. And that's the point. So one of the examples that we gave 20 to stay balanced in this issue, the role of the an AMA, don't be an individual who doesn't respect, acknowledge, embrace and accept

00:36:09--> 00:36:17

their role in their position. And don't be a person on the other hand, who goes overboard. The scholars again,

00:36:18--> 00:36:44

are similar to these lights that are above us. Those scholars like these lights enable us to get the nor that would allow us to read the Quran and understand it, to read the Sunnah and understand it because the Ummah are shining their light upon the Kitab in the Sunnah for us.

00:36:46--> 00:36:50

But this scholar right now, his light is bright.

00:36:51--> 00:37:00

And that one over there, his light is flickering, because he's about to die. And that one way over there, he is far away from us and we don't have access to him.

00:37:02--> 00:37:18

They're all different. Nonetheless, they're important. But if someone were to go and turn all those lights off the switch, we won't be able to see the Quran and the Sunnah. We won't have access to read it, we can't see it, we're blind. We're in the darkness.

00:37:20--> 00:37:50

The goal and the objective is not the light, because the light can come on and off. Allah azza wa jal, he extinguishes the light doesn't finish. So what are you going to do when the scholar when the light goes off? Are you going to just sit there and perpetual darkness and cry and say, Woe is me? What was me, I'm in the dark. You're going to learn from the scholar. So when the light goes off, you have some of his light beaten in that you're gonna go to another scholar. So the point is, when

00:37:50--> 00:38:21

the lights go off, what are we going to do? Does the religion stop? When the Prophet died? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his companions didn't do that. They didn't stop Allah describe my bed, dilutive de la. They didn't change anything from what he brought some Allah who it was set up. So the golden the objective is the Quran that you're reading. The Golden the objective is following the Sunnah. The Golden the objective is not the light. And this is where we get it twisted. We get it

00:38:21--> 00:38:57

twisted. The chef, his brother died. We don't know his brother, but his brothers are Muslim. So we make dua for his brother. Before his brother die, his daughter died. We don't know his daughter, but she's a Muslim. We make dua for the daughter, but because both of them are created to the shift that we go overboard and when a big scholar of Hadith in the Sunnah a scholar who took care of the works of an imam is show Kenny familiar Yemen. There is a scholar His name is Mohammed soup he Hala he

00:38:57--> 00:39:11

died a few months ago. Rahmatullah Alayhi. He used to give the headsman he used to take care of the works of an imam a show Kenny Mohammed bin Well, I didn't show Kenny, tremendous scholar from Yemen, tremendous.

00:39:12--> 00:39:42

The books that he wrote, this particular scholar made it his business, to clean up his books, show you what's authentic, show you what's weak, and so forth and so on. He died, right around the time that the chef son is the sous chefs daughter, and the chef's brother died, because I haven't ruined the chef. I send everything around the chickens brother died, the ship sister daughter died. But when that Chef died, nobody knows about it. We don't make any we don't make any issue about it. And

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

the point here at 20 is not that it's Whadjuk plasm upon us to make a big issue about it. The point here is being a person on the Sunnah. Don't go overboard. Don't go overboard in the rhythm of Islam, and don't fall short of the mark. I don't even know it.

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

Type, he said that the people are of three types, you have to try to be of two of them. He said that people are either scholars

00:40:10--> 00:40:41

or they're students of knowledge. And both of them on a good path, you will scholar a student of knowledge in whichever capacity, you find yourself. He said, and then there's the third group. The third group are the people who we can call them. He said the RIF drives. The people from the community who hear every call every claim, every wind that blows, they get behind that wind, because they don't have any knowledge. So anything that comes to them, it seems pleasing to them, it makes

00:40:41--> 00:41:12

sense to them. So they'll get behind that thing, and they'll push it not knowing, hey, you're supposed to have a methodology in terms of dealing with these types of issues. And it was better for you not to engage yourself in that. So I'm gonna tell Islam, I cannot impress upon you brothers, enough, the importance of this issue, respect the Imams of the masajid, respect the DUA that are given doubt Allah just like you respect your mother and your father and the elders and people who

00:41:12--> 00:41:32

have positions of authority. But there are a number of lsn it's more than respect. He mentioned some Allah who it was sending them in them in each line in Lehi to Allah He loved this shade, but in Muslim, were harming the Quran. From the fact in the proof that a person

00:41:33--> 00:42:05

he venerates Allah, He has taqwa and Eman. A proof of that is that individual, he'll have respect for the elders. He's not an individual who's going to disrespect the elders, people have white men and women who are older than him, Muslims or non Muslims that especially the Muslims, and especially the relatives from the Muslims, one of the signs that he has been is that he knows how to deal with those elders as an individual. He's practicing, she's practicing. But they have a bad attitude with

00:42:05--> 00:42:35

their grandmother, their grandfather was living with them, or they're dealing with older people and they argue with them, and they will swear up and down that they're on the Sunnah. Now you're on the Sunni in certain aspects. But there are other aspects of the Sunni, you're not on those things. So stop looking at yourself like that. One of the worst things that can happen to us as 20 Young people, one of the worst things is for you to exists. And I listen. And you know, you have to

00:42:35--> 00:42:58

struggle and make jihad to make yourself the best person possible, as close to the prophet as possible. SallAllahu was Senator, you're no, you're not him, none of us are him. So we have to make jihad to try to replicate what he did. In that attempt of trying, you actually think I'm like the Prophet and everything. And you deal with people based upon that.

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

And you forgot your situation, you forgot the things that you're doing that are from the cadaver air and the things that you're not doing that are from the cadaver air to leave them off. Like being obedient to your parents, like being obedient to Your husband, like dealing with the older people who are in your lives the way that we're dealing with them. So with all of these people, we have to respect them but with a motherless lamb it goes beyond that respect is more than respect they are

00:43:31--> 00:43:54

the religion and as a result of that they are symbolic of the religion removes removes they're not the religion that D if they go they go there is no Dean No not like not not not to that degree not to that degree that if a scholar dies there's no Dean no there's going to be another scholar inshallah. But when they ultimately all go and they are no scholars

00:43:56--> 00:44:18

assessable to a group of people then they are they are going to be problem so respect to it and know that and give them their heart okay when you if you guys have any questions about today's Doris scholars knowledge things of that nature be my ghosts feel free you put your questions forward inshallah for doodle.

00:44:21--> 00:44:22

hallander come shake

00:44:24--> 00:44:26

but the reality nor have been.

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

CERN in the renowned mine who was some of the trilemma, our time we're connected, for many reasons, due to many reasons, to Saudi Arabia, a lot of the brothers who are giving Dawa studied in Saudi Arabia. So as a result of that

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

There has been an effect and some impact of Saudi Arabian Dawa in the whole world in the whole world. One of the results of the petro dollar is that they made that John Newton Islamia. And they invited the Abinadab the Muslims from all over the world come and study, and they sent them back to their countries. So those people go back to their countries and they start calling to Tawheed, and so forth, so on. So from that angle, Saudi Arabia is going to have an impact on many people. Why are

00:45:30--> 00:45:39

we going to apologize for that? Does that mean we stand for and support everything that Saudi Arabia represents? Kayla will likely

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

Kyla will likely

00:45:43--> 00:46:17

but at the same time, studying in the University of Medina, no one forced you to be Mota acid. If you wanted to be on the midheaven you want to stay on your midheaven you allow to do that just have the ability to discuss and come to conclusions. But does that mean that the only real ama are in Saudi Arabia? No ally, but I have to make this clear to you brothers. The Arabian Peninsula is the bedrock of Al Islam. It's the land of the Muslims is where Islam started. The Nabhi of Islam is from

00:46:17--> 00:46:48

their SallAllahu Sallam his language originates with those people his book was revealed in their language he lived over there. As a result of that as a special place like it who like a hater who hated al Eman will always go back to what and Medina as he says SallAllahu wasallam. Just as a snake will go back to his hole at the end of the day, it's going to always happen. Prophet Muhammad said during the time of fitna go to Medina, because it's better for you go to a sham, go to an Yemen, he

00:46:48--> 00:47:20

talked about the Arab countries, the Arabs have virtues in this religion, that's a story for another day. So the scholars over there in the Arab world are usually going to be more, it's just how it is. That's just the demographics of the reality. But that does not negate that there are scholars from other parts of the world. They have scholars from Pakistan, scholars of Hadith scholars of fit the scholars of the Quran scholar of the Arabic language, they have scholars in Africa, scholars of

00:47:20--> 00:47:32

Hadith scholars of the Arabic language scholars of the Quran and Tajweed, and so forth, so on. So who are they who are they, I don't know all of them and at my job that I got to know all of them.

00:47:33--> 00:48:03

I don't have to know the names of all of those scholars in Pakistan, I don't have to know them. The scholars who I know I know them wherever they happen to be. But we also know that there are some scholars in other places, but what you should not do is you should not allow yourself to think this foreign concept that some of the brothers have. This scholars are only in Arabia, that's it is only in Arabia, because that's not true. That's not true by any stretch of the imagination this place

00:48:03--> 00:48:18

here. I remember they brought that chef but dear Dean Shah, as Cindy Rahima, hula Huhtala. They were not too many scholars in the dunya and his level and caliber that visit the UK since that time until today.

00:48:21--> 00:48:52

al bene came. But who was on the caliber of that man. He was from Pakistan. So there are scholars all over the place from every country. Well, Allahu Allah, any more questions and 20. We just want to warn you guys about being of this opinion, everything is Saudi Arabia, everything is Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabia is that pilaf is the heat alpha, Saudi Arabia, everything there is good. There are some problems in Saudi Arabia, some serious problems, just as they are serious problems

00:48:52--> 00:49:22

and other places. But if you compare Saudi Arabia to the other Muslim countries in the other Muslim land, and my humble opinion, they have the best country hands down because of Mecca and Medina. And they also have run Emma, and they have people will hire and there's Darwin knowledge there for the one safety and security and a standard of living that people will come from the west can appreciate. But is everything perfect? And this is something that we have to get away from we act as if those

00:49:22--> 00:49:29

people were political, as if we represent Saudi Arabia the country as such, and everything they stand for. It's not our religion.

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

But the

00:49:33--> 00:49:34

think mommy

00:49:39--> 00:49:39

go ahead

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

How do we determine the scholar from the good speaker? Because usually the good speaker you know due to his age due to his history due to his background

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

But he's not a scholar.

00:50:02--> 00:50:32

You know due to his age, his history you know about him. Like in our Masjid. We know that Dr. Asad Hanif gives nice talks, nice lectures, nice hot buzz. Mashallah. But we know, he grew up here. We know his history. We know what he did what he didn't do as far as academics are concerned. And we know even from his own self, what he's saying, he'll be the first one say that he's not a scholar. So it's not something that's rocket scientists. It's something that's pretty easy. We know this

00:50:32--> 00:51:04

person's background. So therefore, we know he's not a scholar. He's a revert of the religion of revert of the religion. Now after reverting to the deen of Allah and getting some information, he's a scholar. He's not a scholar. Just on the strength of being a revert. There's going to be limitations on the strength that is a revert the limitations and then spend his young life as a teenager, like the chef Abdullah Zapple are bad, whose father Shut up the nursing has taught the

00:51:04--> 00:51:18

Cordoba sector in the prophets, Masjid Salatu was Salam Hadith Hadith Hadith, he went to Sal Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, I tell him either he went through all of those books, one by one, his son grows up

00:51:19--> 00:51:54

at his feet. His son is sitting in the darkness, at the knees of his father, from a little kid. And now he reaches the age of his mid 50s. And being with his father and being with other people, you see what was produced. So you know, if do the history, this person is a scholar, or in position to be one, unlike the reverb person, who spent 2025 30 years in Jamelia. Now he studied somewhere, he memorized something here and the accompanying did something here and it becomes StyleCop scholar,

00:51:54--> 00:52:07

you know, it's not a scholar, he could be effective, it could be beneficial, but don't get it twisted, and don't get it mixed up, that the person is a scholar by any stretch of the imagination, any more questions at one,

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

not for the?

00:52:24--> 00:52:37

During this time that we're living, there's a lot of Kadem that people are saying that it is their understanding of the religion. I'll give you an example when like this brother just said many examples.

00:52:38--> 00:52:47

There was a person who was practicing LS LAN. And in his practice of Le slam, he teaches people to hate people, the sooner

00:52:48--> 00:52:54

that says a slam, and he gets close to Allah and he exists believing that's the right thing that he's doing.

00:52:57--> 00:52:59

And then there's another one in his lab.

00:53:00--> 00:53:32

He gets close to Allah by telling people don't listen to this one. Don't listen to that one. Don't go to this scholar don't go to that scholar. Because because we've been warned about giving our hearts and our ears to the best scholars because there are a number of a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Shaquan. Yaffe warned that people want the people of the scholar who was a bad scholar, so they want to use that hadith. In order to keep the community the Shabaab

00:53:32--> 00:53:35

individuals from malema, we heard that

00:53:37--> 00:53:38

in the past

00:53:43--> 00:53:46

the animosity between the people of them or their head

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

got so bad that some of the people used to ask is it permissible for

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

a Hanafy? Person to match to marry a shatter each person?

00:54:01--> 00:54:14

Is that permissible? The question was, is that permissible credit for a lady who's Hanafy to marry a man who has shattered because these two men, perhaps the people have problems?

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

The question is bad.

00:54:18--> 00:54:54

And the answer was even worse. The answer is yes. And the deal is key is a Muslim man can marry a Jewish or Christian woman. So he should be able to marry this particular woman who's hifi. So he made clear as a Muslim woman class with a non Muslim Jewish lady or Christian lady, because it got that bad. And that's the religion. It's gotten like that. Now, where if there was a brother, he wants to marry your sister. They asked what message do you go to? They say green lane. Nope, you can

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

get married. You can get married. That's how it is now. They don't ask about

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

Who is he? Where does he come from? What is his situation? Who was his people? That was his Dean? You go to greenlink masjid or that Messer this Masjid. That's it, you're done.

00:55:12--> 00:55:39

And that's how it used to be. And as they say, my Asheboro a laborer, Bill Batty, hi. How much today resembles yesterday, we used to read this stuff about the 100 fields, Shafi saying you can't marry this and this and that. But here, we're living it right now. This is our days, and people worship Allah with that, we'll hear what I say, and slam the desk and say, Nah, that's what we're upon. Because we have to protect each other's religion. So we're gonna want to marry those people from

00:55:39--> 00:55:40

Greenland.

00:55:41--> 00:55:53

When Greenland has some people here, who are better than anyone else in the masjid in green in Birmingham, and masjid, Masjid was the masjid over them

00:55:55--> 00:56:14

by McDonald's over here by going to five ways that Mr. Cole central mask, since you must have some people in there that are better than anybody else in Birmingham, every machine has that good and bad. No mystery has monopoly on Goodness, no one. So as it relates to this issue,

00:56:15--> 00:56:44

we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to eliminate that sinful Mennonites get that, that idea that understanding out of our community, when a scholar comes, and he is assessable than we should go to listen to that scholar, he's a scholar, that's why I'm telling you it's a good point that you're making people the culture that we live in right now, me myself and I and what I think it is a culture in which scholars can come to Greenland and people will openly say don't go there.

00:56:45--> 00:56:59

Don't go there. Why not? Because you know, they come up with all of that Kadem So, what we have to do is rise above that and not beyond that nonsense. Any more questions? That one any more questions with you guys?

00:57:00--> 00:57:04

Okay, Heather was so Lola who will sell them about Academy
