by shadow Mohammedan Abdo rasuluh salatu wa he was said mo and he given tickets outside so if you're parked and the double lines and you're parked in
a compromising way, they're issuing tickets right now.
I'm about to fit in the canon, Canon mulai Highland hula hula Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sharon more much attached to her wakulla death in the attune. wakulla beta actin balada Tomoko la palabra to infinity. 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 Islam in this particular reminder, should actually be a reoccurring mind reminder.
hookah should deal with this issue, the day of their read, 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
then you're going to by default, and necessity, you have to speak about the right amount, and the position in the place of the right ama. We live 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 was a good hottie, he's an effective hottie gives a nice hook, but he gives a nice
lesson. The community because of the culture worries that individual up and they would even look at him as being a scholar when in fact he's a diary to fitna and Miss shakin
is the culture that we live in. And many of them and Sajid. 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 ministry in order to teach? So what happens is you will find the man, if he tells people to straighten up the roles and so forth and so on. He tells someone, don't be in a row with your young child that hasn't doesn't have to do between you and another person, you're breaking the role, instead of him respecting what the man is saying, because it's coming from the keytab and the son that he'll say, I'm doing what I want to do you Just mind
your own business. This is the culture. So the remarkable Islam during this time, a lot of people have lost the respect and the way Islam is commanding us to look at them. That's one issue one challenge one problem. The other side of that coin, are the people who go overboard in the man with Darla.
The way that Benny Adam started to make shift can COVID the only sin that a lot doesn't forgive
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, the children came and shaytaan Qing to the children and told the children, your parents 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 red ama
So to extremes we have to avoid not knowing the heart of the scholar and the person going overboard with the scholar right now.
Many people claim a connection to the sooner that they're undisciplined and trying to practice the sooner. 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 shift Site Info Zan for an example. And going overboard in him I say something like the ODI of Allah. Allah Olia. If it shifts silent fosun is not a will lead from the OD of a lot, then a lot doesn't have any od.
As going overboard No matter how much I love that ship and no matter how much how much there's no matter how much Houston I'm gonna have about that ship. How can I say that? When the book of a level of time is clear with that to Zack Cohen
and the movie man Tata don't you guys you people praise when another Allah knows best who has a tough love from the soul of a set if here from the soul that that people used to be upon as a release to be in upon the min headjam idol Hadith is that 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 someone specific. We're gonna say this brother is in gender. We're not gonna say that. We're gonna say we hope that he's in gender. I hope that I'm in gender hope that all of us in gender.
And if someone dies, we don't say that they're in the hole fire and say that person is in the Hellfire without deal. 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 al Islam, we say he's in gender. And Allah knows best, but to definitively state he's in gender Nah, you need proof for that? For now Mullah. He is in the nada Abdullah Abu jihad, voila, he they're in the Hellfire moves are easy for him to smile. Abu Bakar salotto like he was saying, I'm whining about the law and all of them are in general. Why? Because the delille told us that. So when I come
in, I say if a chef or a beer and a chef salad falls and if they're not from the OD of Allah, Allahu Allah doesn't have any old yet. Yeah, you went overboard. Because those two people that you mentioned although we have Krishna van, we have Krishna van. We don't talk about our lives religion without knowledge similar to that man who said to his brother in law, he Allah is not going to put you into the jungle and Allah will forgive you and like cause him to die. And LX that man the question
who puts you in charge of the keys of my Casa in my agenda is from my treasures who put you in charge of that? To say who's in general who's a wealthy who's not a winner who put you in charge? Allah asked him the question, do you know everything about me? How intimate he can be. You know everything about Allah. You don't know everything about a lot to say something like that. Allah has only that you don't know about and that's what happened with Moosa the Kalima Bella salewa to lie he was sent out in Hawaii, but people said yeah, Mustafa and Benny in Surah l Is there anyone more knowledgeable than you? He said, there's no one more knowledgeable than me. And the lies are a joke.
And for him to know we have a servant and he has and then Moosa went out in search of him. So moose is the name of Allah getting revelation from jabril. Speaking to a lot directly, he met Allah subhanho wa Taala and spoke to a lot a lot spoke to him directly what kenema Well, moose attack Lima, he is called the Karim 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'm a doesn't know a lot about Islam. We have to slow down with these emotions stay in the middle. And the
reason why I'm giving you this example of a share of silence Hosanna shakra be her father whom a lot. It is something 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 a whiny is it will allow you and enable you to practice an aspect of your deen that is important and imperative is important.
Whenever he told us a lot what he was sending the men in your hand sorry,
when you walk
when I'm younger than the alumina hakuho felice, Amina, 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 is not from us. He's not from the people of Al Islam, doesn't 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 Islam is not thus, 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 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 Allah He was sending them you're not from us. You're not from those people were pon the correct Islam that he brought some a lot he was send them in 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. The Navy told us something
about Benny and Surat el Salalah while he was setting them cannot ban Islam Surah Al, your social human NBN Co Luma hella Khanna Bian cada una de Benyus ra l. Their prophets were responsible for their CSR for their politics.
Every time a Prophet would die, another prophet would take his place, they send many, many of the NBN and they had that blessing. Our omens not like that. Our Ummah, we have virtues over benissa, eel monastic for Ba, l, overbidding, israa, eel, many. But they have some things over us, that Allah gave them and he didn't give us when love who you are, teaming is 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 time. And the prophets in the messages came in a long succession a long line of profits 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 lawsuit. So the law while he was said, but he said unauthentic, Hades and Rama were a fatal NBA algorithm or whatever to the NBA. The real ama the scholars, they are the inheritors of the prophets. So with Benny Surah Al every time a prophet died, another prophet will come with our, our nebby our Rasulullah Salim die, but he said that
they are the inheritors of the Prophet. So just imagine, we're not going to put them on the same level of the NBI like with what happened Benny's raw eel. But as soon as we know that there is no profit after the Nabi sallallahu wasallam. But the people who take his place in his position, so to speak, they are the NMR, not the Hata ba that one was given a quote by No.
No doubt the one was given a hug, but he's playing some role that scholars play. He's playing the role that the Prophet plays on the ladder, we send them in addressing the people and giving them direction. So to a certain extent, he has inherited some of that portion. You ama Becker, 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 send them and when you teach it to your children, and you get down to it, you and another scholar, but she was 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 not an AMA of Ellis lamb. So as a result of that they've been given a high position and they should be treated a particular way because of that, of delighting the most screwed in his famous statement. He said that this man will always be in a state of good as long as knowledge comes to them from the companions read the law and from the law from
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 it says Boko Haram al Qaeda. 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 their alumni. Look what happened with Benny and Surah Al and is a message throughout the Quran. He says a lot while he was sending them in a shed Ganassi adapting yo mukaiyama Rajan cotton an abelian Alcatel hoonah been the one who was the worst person you'll know kiama who get the harshest punishment yomo piano is a man who killed a nebby Oh, he was killed by a
Navy. They used to happen with Benny Esra ill left right and center that was part of their culture. And and levena Karuna Be it la he would have been a bit ad hoc work to run an ad in a neuron and NASA
for Bashir, whom be either been Aleem La La Vina Ooh la la Vina habitat Amato Daniela Hara Mara luminosity.
There's a reoccurring theme in the Quran about the history of Venezuela in verily those people who just believe in the act of Allah, and they kill the prophets for no just cause they kill them. And they also kill those people who enjoin 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 ringed, null and void. And in the doing of the accurate, they're going to be punished a serious punishment. That was the way Benyus or ill dealt with the AMA, and the NBA, they killed the NBA, and then they killed the people who are the AMA from amongst Benny, etc, etc. So those two groups were mentioned in this ayah
within the indication for us.
If we knew the rights of the scholars, we won't find people killing an AMA, as 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 code OGE, where people make hirogen a pull out sores and the weapons on the Muslim lead and they fight them. And then you have people make the heroes with the Kadima with the caravan with the caravan, 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 has kadem is like killing the
scholar. And that is something that is normal here in the UK. We don't have a monopoly on it. But it's normal here in the UK A
few years ago, there's a chef from Somalia, his name was up to par there, Farah. They killed that man. Up in the north of Somalia, a man whose dollar was diverted to head down to the Kitab in the Sudan, dollar to unity, die with a favor for the community where he came from, they killed them, when did they kill them and where they killed them in the midst of that salaat time is that an individual understands, but half of the drama in Yemen in Yemen is a chef, his name is Abdul Rahman Atomy. They killed him, assassinate him shot him 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.
And this has been the case in Nigeria. This has been the case in the Muslim world and then Iraq and Libya. The brother graduated from Medina as a PhD knowledgeable as a lot of benefit, his Tao in Libya with all of that drama and Libya, that people come in and kill them. And they brag about it and they come out and claim responsibility for it. And they say this Jihad and they say this is going to establish Ellis land. Yeah, he you don't know the rights of Lauren Emma, you're crazy. You're crazy 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 her defenses. 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?
No, we have to know the position of the lemma in Al Islam, because they're not like regular people. They're the inheritors of the NBA. Allow the time I mentioned in the Quran shahidullah who and know who la isla
Illa who won my echo to cart human because we're all we're all in the car in 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 the melodica to bear witness to that oneness. And he calls those who have been dialed in Mr. torso bear witness. So the eye is talking about the rhythm man, is that talking about the regular ama burger? Is he from the people? You're a fella who levena Amman, woman Kuma larina Ooh, Dara jack, 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 hottie that is talking about the real ama in Las land. And their presence amongst the Muslims, is beneficial for the online for the Muslims. And the absence from the Muslims is a problem. For that reason, Mr. Villani, I'm not even locked up, and other people from the Senate, 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 or 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 Roma, or the people who are sick, or llahi, some of these Gemma itis cicm, 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 life in the dole 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 about scholars. So those three great mountains during our time, just one of them. And then Ben, when Danny was in
Syria, when he was in Jordan, the biggest Islamic political group in the DIA in the Arab world, the biggest one in the dunya. They used to warn 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, put these politics, it's going to be the Ummah, 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 in law, no one here is going to make hooroo. Anyone, but again, hold on, which can
be with the lease, and it could be with a kelemen, the hottie 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 of any given question. He's encouraging fitness and coach. 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 a man's messaging, you don't do that in MSG, you handle that issue behind the
scenes. So now karoge is with the kelemen. murdering the scholars is also with the kelemen. When you tell people when you want people like like coming here, scholars for dollars, scholars for dollars, any scholar who is a part of a government, we can take from him. Okay, Which color 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 the ones that are in the caves hiding in jihad. So you take from scholars hiding the cave, how are they accessible if the in the caves doesn't even make sense what you're saying? So we hear this from many of the individuals who are giving Dawa here in this country. And as I said many
times, Abdullah, if you ever see a man speaking about a motherless lamb, then you have to go the other way. You have to run the other way. He shouldn't have our ears on the mimbar he shouldn't have our hearts. He shouldn't have any connection. There is a man who died recently. His name is Ahmad Abdul Rahman Rahmatullah he and he was offered a level then Allah who this man was accused of doing some things a long time ago.
He's not a scholar from the animal Islam, but because of the dour that he used to have. There are people who were very, very extremely
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 husana done with them in the Maya shala Herman roberti. And those people that fear Allah from his servants, or those who are the scholars, so we have personally learn about every single scholar, does that mean that the scholars may assume?
Now it doesn't mean that
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 chef is 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 is from those people who feel as long as you don't have kibber, it's permissible to have it's about maybe it's not for most people. As for me, saying, I'm better than him, as me saying, the sheriff is not qualified and competent, as me saying, the sheriff has outside of the
sooner you're an individual who doesn't know the position of the scholar, the scholars 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 doesn't require an answer full halia Stone levena Allah moon, will la Viva La La moon, are they equal? Those who know and those who don't know?
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. Along with Tyler mentioned in the Quran and Sudoku rod, our lm euro, and nachten, nanto suhar Rafi ha, do they not see? Do they not see any item? How we cause the earth to shrink? From the different corners? x one of you? What's the meaning of that? Is the earth shrink? And what's the meaning of that? Is somebody tell me what's the meaning of that is, when you hear it in Arabic or in the translation? Do they not see how we allow Allah, we cause the earth to become noxious from his corners from his boundaries.
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's ignorance when they ignorance there is going to be restrictions within the lives of the people. So that's one of the meanings of the Quran that showed the importance of the Rama someone acts the great scholar from the Tabby mean, sorry, they've been Jubail, one of the seven fuqaha
oven. Medina, tremendous individuales, a student of Abdullah Bassam, radi Allahu, they said, How and when do you know that a people will be destroyed? He said they'll 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. I mean, I don't know anybody who is a scholar in the UK.
There are some people in the AMA about the Quran. Some people really know the Quran, some people don't really know Arabic language. But in Europe, in the UK, I 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 rhythm of the dunya.
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 rhythm, 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 the a few little group. And they don't have any annamma from amongst.
They don't have any scholars that they recognize, again, the scholar that they look
For is like the MACD of the rafita the MACD, they've been waiting to come out of a cave for over 1000 years the MACD of horrified, he ain't coming out. And if he does come out, he's a false man, he's a dead cow.
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 he's 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 scar was the one who was locked up.
Now, it's possible that a scholar can be locked up. But where does it come in the key table the student in the life of the people, the style is the one who was locked up. Maybe the one who was 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
he doesn't happen. 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 even jubair Rahmatullahi tala say that he said that for the same reason that I'm loving him I screwed me a lot be pleased with him said
that this owner will be good and a condition of good as long as the knowledge that comes to them comes from the companions and comes from the aroma not from the Chabad
not from the Chabad.
Even a bass had been a Maslow said that jubair even say he said that, because that's what the Prophet taught on the law while he was setting God in the law. Like young zero
in desiring and zero human, so Dora NASS, when I can
be a cub dilemma had taken me up to alima Tasha, Nas, ju Harlan, Rose and you holla he says I love what he was sending them. Allah doesn't snatch the knowledge at one time, out of the hearts and the minds in the breasts of the people just isn't take it out like that. He said, But knowledge is taken out by a lot grabbing and taking the life of the scholar. And then when there doesn't remain any scholars, that people then start to take as the litas 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 give foot towards instructions
in directions. So they'll send those people astray. And they themselves will go astray. So that's a clear indication and honey, amongst the many indications in the deen of Allah azza wa jal that are an Ummah, in 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 Adam fow giving examples, examples, similar tools, so that people can understand what was being said and ways coming from. He wanted to show for an example and there are many infallible Quran about 30 to 40. And the Sunni there are many, many, many. The Quran said yeah, he went nice dirty by methadone
for systemic level. In a levena tournament, dueling la healing Yes, Lu Baba Moto, which terminal level, O mankind an example and 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. He said the new millennium whatever you worship, whoever you worship with sudo, la Salaam, 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. I said the fly is weak and they're weak as well. They don't deserve to be worshipped. So that is a way of a lot of saying whatever your worship and other than a lot 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 sooner has more. He mentioned some of what he was sending them in. Metal
and metal rail have in a method an ISP but he can method will calculate a route with IE. He wants to show us not permissible for a person to give a gift. And then after giving the gift to your wife to yourself.
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 Nicholas to talking about
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. Mohammed wanted to show this haraam to do that. He could have just said don't do that. But he said the example of the one who gives a gift and then he takes the gift back is like the dog that bombings and then he licks the vomit back up. So when the 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
vomiting is Victor's vomit up. So we like to teach like that, from the sun to teach like that. That's the point. So one of the examples that we gave it wanting to stay balanced in this issue, the role of the NMR Don't be an individual who doesn't respect, acknowledge, embrace and accept their role in their position. And don't be a person on the other hand, who goes overboard. The scholars again,
are similar to these lights that are above us. Those scholars like these lights enable us to get the nor that will 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 keytab in the sooner for us.
But this scholar right now, his light is bright.
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.
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.
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 gonna 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 going to go to another scholar. So the point is, when the lights go off, what are we going to do? Does the religion stop when the Prophet died, so a lot while he was setting them, his companions didn't do that. They didn't stop. I like to describe
my bed, deleeuw tub dealer. They didn't change anything from what he brought some love while he was selling. So the goal and the objective is the Quran that you're reading the goal and the objective is following the Sunnah. The goal, the objective is not the light. And this is where we get it twisted. We get it twisted. The chef, his brother died. We don't know his brother, but his brother is a Muslim. So we make dua for his brother. Before his brother died, 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 in when a big scholar of Hadith and the sooner. A scholar
who took care of the works of an Imam is show Kenny from in Yemen. As a scholar, his name is Mohammed soupy holla. He died a few months ago Bruckner to LA he la he, he used to give the headman used to take care of the works of an Imam as showcased in Mohammed bin Ali shamkhani. Tremendous scholar from Al Haman, tremendous.
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 this shift son is the shifts daughter, and the chef's brother died. Because I have Hulu in the share. I send everything around the biggest brother died, the shake sisters, his daughter died. But when that shift died, nobody knows about it. We don't make any we don't make any issue about it. And the point here at whiny is not that it's whadjuk lasme upon us to make a big issue about it. The point here is being a person on the sonet don't go overboard. Don't go overboard in the aroma of
Ellis land, and don't fall short of the mark. I don't even know
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,
or they're students of knowledge. And both of them on a good path. He was 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 roof rats, the people from the community will hear every call every claim, every wind that blows, they get behind that wing, because they don't have any knowledge. So anything that comes to them, it seems pleasing to them, it makes 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 oma Tila Islam, I cannot impress upon you brothers, enough, the importance of this issue, respect the Imams of the massage it respect the do art that are given doubt a law just like you respect your mother and your father and the elders and people in positions of authority. But the amount of Lsn is more than respect. He mentioned some of the law while he was sending them in them in each line in law, he tala law, the shape and Muslim were harmony.
From the fact in the proof that a person
he venerates a lot he has taqwa and he man, 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 are, 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 in individually. He's practicing, she's practicing, but they have a bad attitude with their grandmother, their grandfather was living with them. Or they're dealing with older people, and they argue with them, and they were swept up and down that they're on the sooner now you're on the
sun in certain aspects. But there are other aspects of the Sydney you're not on those things. So stop looking at yourself like that. One of the worst things that can happen to us at any young people, one of the worst things is for you to exists in Ellis land. And you know, you have to struggle and make Jihad to make yourself the best person possible, as close to the Prophet as possible. So a lot he was sending it. You're no you're not hearing none of us say 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.
And you forgot your situation, you forgot the things that you're doing, that are from the cadaver and the things that you're not doing that are from the cadaver 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 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's 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 scowling shout lies we joke but when they ultimately all go, and there are no scholars
assessable to a group of people then there they are going to be problem so respect to them. And know that an AMA and give them their heart. Okay, when if you guys have any questions about today's das scholars knowledge, things of that nature, be my ghosts Feel free to put your questions forward in Sharla for a little
while in the shade.
But they actually Nora Dean,
CERN in the renowned mind, who was some of the lemma our time we're connected, for many reasons due to many reasons. to Saudi Arabia, a lot of the brothers who are given down studied in Saudi Arabia. So as a result of that,
There has been an effect in 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 giant mental 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 who I'm going to apologize for that. Does that mean we stand for and support everything that Saudi Arabia represents Kela will likely
kill our liking.
But at the same time, studying in the University of Medina, No one forced you to be acid. If you want it to be on a meta habit, you want to stay on your meta Have you allowed to do that just have the ability to discuss and come to conclusions. But does that mean that the only LMR are in Saudi Arabia? No lie, but I have to make this clear to you brothers. the Arabian Peninsula is the bedrock of Ellis land. It's the land of the Muslims is where Islam started. The nebia of Islam is from their sallallahu wasallam his language originates with those people his book was revealed in their language he lived over there. As a result of that it's a special place like a who, like a hater who
hate it. And he man will always go back to Medina, as he says some of it was settled him, just as a snake will go back to his whole at the end of the day, it's gonna always happen. Prophet Mohammed said, during the time of a fitna go to Medina, because it's better for you go to a sham, go to a Neiman, he talked about the Arab countries, the Arabs have virtues in this religion as 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. There are scholars from Pakistan, scholars of Hadith
scholars of fit the scholars of the Koran, scholar of the Arabic language, there are scholars in Africa, scholars of 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 in a my job that I got to know all of them.
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 here. I remember they brought that chef but Dr. Dean Shah and Cindy Rahim Allahu taala, there are not too many scholars in the dunya on his level and caliber that visited the UK since that time
lol Benny cane, but who was on the caliber of that man, it was from Pakistan. So they scholars all over the place from every country will love it. Any more questions, and 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 life is the hereafter. So the Arabia, everything there is good. There are some problems in Saudi Arabia, some serious problems, just as there are serious problems in other places. But if you compare Saudi Arabia to the other Muslim countries in the other Muslim land, in my humble opinion, they have the best country hands down because of Mecca and Medina. And they also have Rama
and they have people will hire and there's Tao and knowledge there for the one safety and security and a standard of living that people 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 people were political, as if we represent Saudi Arabia, the country as such, and everything they stand for. It's not our religion.
Hey, my man.
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
He's not a scholar
you know due to his age, his history you know about him like an hour mistake. We know that that the US and Hanif gives nice talks nice lectures nice kobus 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 to say that he's not a scholar. So it's not something that's rocket scientist. It's something that's pretty easy. We know this 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 is 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 shape of the Rezaei dad, whose father shut up the Merson has taught the cannabis sector in the prophets messages on the light he was send them Howdy, howdy, howdy, if he went to Sal Bukhari Sahih Muslim at telling me that he went through all of those books, one by one, his son grows up
at his feet. His son is sitting in the Doris 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, to 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 memorize something here in the accompanying there's something here and it becomes stylecop scholar, you know, it's not a scholar, it 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 that one?
Now, for the
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, honey, like this brother just said many examples.
There was a person who was practicing Ellis land. And in his practice of Ellis lamb, he teaches people to hate people, the sooner
that says Islam, and it gets close to a line he exists, believing that's the right thing that he's doing.
And then there's another one in his Islam.
He gets close to a lot 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 mourning about given our hearts and our ears to the bad scholars, because there are a number of a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu it was selling them should warn the people warn the people of the scholar who was a bad scholar. So they want to use that Hadees. In order to keep the community the Shabaab individuals from malema, we heard that
in the past,
the animosity between the people of them or that
guy is so bad that some of the people used to ask is it permissible for
a hanafy person to manage to marry a shatter a person?
Is that permissible? The question was, is that permissible hiding for a lady who's hanafy to marry a man who is Shafi because these two mishaps, the people have problems.
The question is bad.
And the answer was even worse. The answer is yes. And the dilemma 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 hanafy. So he may he is a Muslim woman. He is with a non Muslim Jewish lady or Christian lady, because he got that back. 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 get married. You can get married. That's how it is now. They don't ask about
Who is he? Where does he come from? What is his situation? Who is his people? There was his Dean. You go to greenlink Masjid or that mister this mistake? That's it, you're done.
And that's how it used to be and as they say my ESCO who eleva bilberry ha how much today resembles yesterday, we used to read this stuff about the HANA fees, Shafi saying you can't marry this and this and that. But here we're living it right now. This is how it is. And people worship Allah with that, we'll hear what I say, and slam the desk and say, nom, that's what we're upon. Because we have to protect each other's religion. So we don't want to marry those people in Greenland.
When Greenland has some people here, who were better than anyone else in the masjid in green in Birmingham, and Mr. De Mesquita was demonstrated over there.
By McDonald's over here by going to five ways that mistake or 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 machine has monopoly on goodness, no one. So as it relates to this issue,
we ask allows Hanwha Ouattara to Alemany that since men and NASS, get that, that idea that understanding out of our community, when a scholar comes, and he is assessable, then we should go to listen to that style. 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.
Don't go there. Why not? Because you know, they come up with all of that cut and so what we have to do is rise above that and not beyond that nonsense. Any more questions or whining any more questions with you guys?
Okay, Heather for Salalah. We'll send them a bada cannon.
