Mon Rahim in sha Allah project mustard
today, which is a brief lecture on a deep history on this
machine. So without any further delay, I will hand the mic over.
Thank you very much Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Barack Obama his severe elimination regime. Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim.
Your Latina Amano, or the whole of Selma Kapha colada alata Toyota watershape on in the hula come, do mobian color so Lysol Allahu alayhi wa sallam
booni al Islam Allah comes in Charlotte en la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah economy Salah what is the cat well Hydra Samia Ramadan, I will come upon Allah salatu salam, Tomoko alayhi salatu salam, Bala guanine valo ayah respected brothers and sisters, I am very honored and privileged to be here among you to talk about a very important topic very often
neglected, you know, topic when I say very often neglected I mean, often when we hear Islamic talks, very little emphasis is put on the legacy of the old Hadith historically speaking, now, what is 100 Hadith actually mean? linguistically means the people of Hadith linguistically that is a straightforward linguistic translation of the term. Technically, the Sharia the meaning of the term is the people who indulge in studying, preserving, authenticating
transferring this knowledge to posterity or to the future generations. So these people, the other these are technically speaking the guardians of the Hadith literature, the prophetic tradition. Islam has two main sources of Revelation. Right. And those sources are the Quran number one and the Hadith or the Sunnah. A lot of the times, Hadith, and Sunnah are used interchangeably by the allama, the classical Allah some modern
misguided persons have come along and they have tried to form a distinction between the Sunnah and the Hadith, okay, but they have failed to do so because it is almost impossible to divide the two
entities because they're not two there is one Sana and Hades is one thing.
So these are the two main sources of Islam, the Quran and the Sunnah.
And the Sunnah, is of course, to be found in the Hadith literature in the collections of Hadees. Now there are many of these collections. They run into hundreds of volumes. There are six main Hadees books. The Alessandra de Waal Gemma referred to as the main sources after the Quran. And these six books are called saharsa. Okay, the six authentic books are the all authentic
Bukhari and Muslim, the topmost. Two collections within the six are definitely all authentic, we believe as a Sunnah. Despite some of the
criticism of few reports within these collections, these two collections,
we believe that they are the most authentic of these six books of of Hades. So the remaining four Abu Daoud sonnen and Asahi
Sana teramachi and ebru Maja, so none of
these four have weak reports in them, and the scholars have had issues such as Michel Barnier recently and before him many others have highlighted those weak reports within those four collections. But two collections Bukhari and Muslim are, according to the majority, the overwhelming majority of the Sunni Allah. Throughout Islamic history, these two books are overwhelmingly authentic, they are authentic. In fact, there is very little room to doubt whether the information contained therein in these two collections Bukhari and Muslim can be doubted. There is very little reason to believe that. So, people who protected who collected who authenticated and then
transferred this law
To The Future generations will called us horrible Hadith in the early period of Islam,
Allah Hadith basically is another name for us horrible Hadith. So Allah Hadees and as horrible as these are two terms again used into interchange interchangeably in the classical literature, when I say the classical literature, I mean literature from the second century of Islam to the 19th century,
Common Era, okay or what would you call you can call it the 13th century of history basically, Okay, first century history up to the 12th century history, or 13th century history rather, we call this literature penned within these 12 centuries we call it the classical literature. Okay, in this period were born luminaries like Mr. Bahari Mr. Muslim early, early in the scene, then the later the cinnamon Bay hockey for example, or my mom Hakeem from Alyssa booty, and then later on we have during the Middle Ages near the time of shekel, Islamic potamia, we have other people like mo Salah. Okay, who wrote maka Dhamma, on the science of Hadees. And the list goes on. And then we come to the
later point, later period where amongst the people like amongst UT, and even later on, we have Mr. Mitchell County, right. So when you start looking at as Harvard had these people who were directly involved in studying the Hadith literature, authenticating it, preserving it, and then
forwarding it or transferring this knowledge to the future generation, these are well known characters throughout the Islamic history. Okay, so Imam Cho Ghani. For example, this begins with the Imam Malik. Okay. The period I'm talking about is Mr. Malik. Mr. Malik. When was he born? He was born, according to most estimates, about 93 to 94 Hijri. Okay, when some of the Sava are alive, okay. And then Mr. Malik's book is thought to be the first systematic
collection of headings literature, and he called it alma mater. Okay. And even Harun Rashid at one point wanted to make it
the main book after the Quran to be studied within the Muslim Empire, throughout the Muslim civilization, and Imam Malik forbade him Mr. Malik didn't want that monopoly, because he knew his book may have certain defects or certain weak reports and didn't want to be responsible for making those weak reports. A source of knowledge for the Muslims. So Mr. Malik, it begins with Mr. Malik. Of course, there were earlier scholars, scholars before Mr. maryk, who gave knowledge to Mr. maryk they were there they existed, right? But in my Malik's collection was one of the first systematic collections of headings literature, then we come up to the time of immemorial Carney who died in the
13th century history and 19th century CE II write a mom Shakuni I think died if I'm not mistaken, he died in 1826 also known as a huge figure, within the classical period
as an authority and had these literature,
so this is a summary. Who are the people have had these people have had these, as Hubbard had these are the oldest
denomination in the history of Islam, people who are directly involved in preserving the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam, whether it was in the wording of the Prophet, whether it was in the reports
of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam talking about the Prophet, his actions, his deeds and what he agreed to. So, as Habilis, we're directly concerned with preserving the prophetic tradition. And this process started
well into the first century or very, very early with the companions of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu alaihe, Salam himself
and system to make it systematic.
To organize this knowledge,
as harbored Hades
introduced certain tools to preserve this knowledge. And these tools are of course taken directly from the Quran, and the prophetic tradition. Koran tells us clearly in one of the verses in john a confessor can be nobody
Fabiana Okay, this is one of the best verses of the Quran Allah of Hades have used to justify the development of the science of Hades. The purpose of the science of Hades was to preserve, to collect, and then to transmit this knowledge to future generations is that clear brothers, yes, to preserve to collect, firstly, to collect and then to preserve to authenticate and then transmit this knowledge to future generations, you can bring it down to these four points to collect, to authenticate, to preserve and then to transmit this knowledge to the future generations. And then this process started with the Sahaba and then the Sahaba transferred this Heidi's knowledge, the
knowledge of the Sunnah. Now, don't get me wrong, the the knowledge of the Quran is also being transmitted simultaneously simultaneously at the same time, and that knowledge the people who
busied themselves in collecting knowledge on the Quran is Tafseer and it's Garat. They are called Allah the Quran. The Quran of today, okay, the Quran of today are the Quran only Muslims. And according to most Sunni scholars, those who reject the Hades literature, in totality are actually not Muslims because they are rejecting a large part of Islam which is the Sunnah, without the Sunnah, you cannot possibly explain some parts of the Quran it is impossible to comprehend some parts of the Quran actually most of the Quran will be incomprehensible, without the parallel tradition, what we call the Sunnah. And the Quran itself, amazingly refers to this tradition, right?
In one of the verses of Surah nahal if I'm not mistaken, mistaking it's verse number 48, where Allah subhanaw taala tells us how do we live in a chatango rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim
Well, well Angela alayka decra. Ally's talking to the professor assume that we have revealed this Vicar of this revelation upon you, Lithuanian Alina smanos de la la him, so that you may explain to them what what has been revealed upon them or for them, right? So Allah is talking about an extra Quranic material explaining the Quran is that clear? In surah tunnel in this verse, Allah is talking about an extra Quranic material to explain the Quran for example Quran gives you
parameters for example, okay, Aki masala waters aka okay.
Or another in another verse, Allah subhanaw taala states that Hodges obligatory upon you those who have his data, okay.
But the details, how do you do Hajj? How do you give the cat how much for how long to who? Right?
In what way?
All of these details are in the Sunnah of the Prophet because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam through his actions, his words and his his affirmations, explained
the Quran how to practice the Quran. That's why the companions of the Prophet Mohammed salatu salam gave upmost importance to the prophetic tradition that explains the Quran. This is why with the Quran with the Quran, in parallel, they transmitted the Sunnah, the prophetic tradition to the followers, the tambourine, so tambourine that took this knowledge from the Sahaba, in 1000s 1000s of dobbyn. We're taking this knowledge and then it went on to the next generations, Teletubbies and then I'm starting with Mr. Malik, Mr. Malik had hundreds of students who took multi ma Malik from the Imam. Okay. And then what you see is from those students, many more came forward. And then they
had 1000s of students. And then the least literature by the third century, of hedra, had expanded had gone throughout
the Muslim civilization from northern China to Spain, as far as Spain, this knowledge had spread by the third century Hijri because these imams early imams who are teaching this knowledge had given this knowledge in its pure form, having authenticated it, and now How did they authenticate? It is another lecture in itself. I'm not going to get into that how the which is the science of Hades. I cannot get into the science of Hades in this short lecture. This is only an introduction
on as to who Arnold had, these are okay, and whether they are still alive, whether they still exist or not. This is what I'm addressing today. So, this knowledge of Hades was powerfully preserved, powerfully protected, protected, and then transmitted to future generations. That's why there is almost an ajumma when I say almost
I mean, the overwhelming majority of the
Sunni scholars agree that Bukhari Sahih al Bukhari is the most authentic book after the Quran. It is not like the Quran.
Quran has been preserved in length in wording. Buhari has the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam preserved in wording and in meaning, because these transmission was transmitted to us in two forms, love the word by word what the prophet had said. And then monwy, the meaning of what the prophet had said, salatu salam. And this is why we find variations in some of the reports, when as Javi saying he's describing an incident, for example, that I saw the Prophet do X, Y and Zed, for example, and other Sahabi, who witnessed the same incident reports the incident and his own wording, right? Hence, the variation, right? But the core of the message is exactly the same that the
prophets analyzed. And what does this do? This x explains or this actually authenticates the knowledge, that definitely there's no doubt that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had said that or did that at a certain point in his life, right? And multiple attestation multiple attested incidents.
The core message is completely authenticated by that by multiple attestation. And that's what Buhari does in a number of cases. Mr. mcquarry for example, sometimes bring reports on the same incident narrated by different people at different times, so that he can show how powerful he preserved the tradition or the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is okay. Now what after leaving the scene had done the job and now we understand who as hobbies were, okay? As hobbies are not necessarily as herbal Quran as herbal Quran, people who were busy in preserving the karate of the Quran is reading is memorization and sciences connected to the Quran, they were as herbal or an right. For example,
many of the companions of Abdullah bin Abbas were known as as hobble Quran in the sense that they were
taking the Quran is recitation.
It's going to art and its meaning from the Sahaba. Like Abdullah Abdullah bin Abbas, they were not necessarily known as narrators of Hadees. the narrator's of Hadees, had taken that task, and they focused on that in transmitting the Hadees. So that's what they did. That's what they specialized in. So it may well be the case that there is a very powerful narrator of the Quran who mastered the science of karate science of the Quran or transmitting the Quran and is not very popular among the Hadith scholars one of those examples is who who have have the Cara of the Quran you read in your massages every single day half is a giant in transmitting the Quran, he had pioneered the size of
the Quran and the Quran and he transmitted the Quran he had taken from the Sahaba or dobbyn, sorry, Tobin and the later generations and he transmitted this, his own camera, his own reading of the Quran, to the future generation, but in Hades, the alama police did not take it from him, because he was not a person of Hades, he was not known to have been a person who had these likewise, you may be a giant in cara, or sorry, in fic. In the science of jurisprudence, you may be a giant you may be a huge person when it comes to teaching jurisprudence, or what we call thick in the Arabic language, the understanding of, you know, certain matters in Islam for kaha. For example, you know, a four key
is not necessarily a hadith. For example, one of the biggest examples I can give you in my work,
Mr. Mobile nifa
was not known to be a person of Hades who transmitted Hades. In fact, this is not what I am saying. A lot of people think that as Howard had these are these have something against Mr. hanifah Rahmatullah. They're far from it, we respect him, we love him. And we salute him for his services to Islam. He was a great person, he was a very pious person, his piety has been testified to in the classical literature even
throughout Islamic literature written by them at the scene, they pay tribute to him, okay, but when it comes to her this transmission, Mr. Mobile honey Parramatta lolly was not accepted as these transmitted by the scene in fact,
They did not accept his report because he was not known to have mastered or pioneered that science. On the other hand, Mr. Malik, of course, by all means, remember her Imam Bukhari have taken tons of reports of Mr. Malik, or from his chain. So there was a student of Mr. Malik called Abdullah bin Yusuf, who was a direct teacher of Mr. Malik. Right. So there are tons of reports in Sahih al Bukhari from Malik. Okay. And there is nothing from Ahmed and jhaveri. Right. Why? Why? Because Imam Bukhari wanted to make a chain shot.
He wanted to reach out to the shortest chains available possible, because the man Buhari was alive at the same time as Mr. Muhammad, he had access to people older than Mr. Mohammed.
He had access to people who were basically
to make the chains short, basically more worthy than Mr. Muhammad, in the sense that Mr. Mohammed was late. So it's like, I can give you my own example. I can give you my own example, right? I have a teacher who taught me this. And of course, I wanted to get a job from him. And my teacher is young. He's in his 40s, possibly early 50s. And I asked him, is your teacher alive? He said, Yes, he is alive. He's in his 80s. So I said, Can I make the change? Short, please? Okay, the shorter the chain, the better it is for the student, right? What we call Ali sunet, Sonata Ali, okay, which is a higher,
you know, chain. So he said, I have no problem with that. So both of us traveled for hours. And we went to a city called fessler bod in Pakistan. And there was the chef Abdulaziz Allah v. Okay. He's in his 80s. And he has taught her these four, possibly the best part of his life. In fact, some people were telling me that he has memorized Buhari, you know, you asked Him and He will tell you where the report is and who the transmitters are. So I went to the shack and I begged him, I said, check, can I have your chain, he said, I cannot give you my chain. Unless you complete the entire text of Buhari with my student. You cannot claim my chain. I can write the Senate for you. I will
write the Senate for you. You can read to me. And I will give you the Senate for that particular reading. But you cannot use my senate until you have finished the entire text of Buhari with your teacher who was his student. So I promised him and I cannot
use the chain until I finished the text of Buhari with my teacher, so hon Allah. So he gave me the son of the red parts of Buhari to him and he gave me a sense of that. So this is exactly what Mr. McCarty was doing, and the early period that he wanted higher chains. And amazingly Mr. Buhari has reports or he put down reports in Sahil Bukhari with three narrators between himself and the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now, check this out. Number one Imam Bukhari who narrates from his teacher, McKee Ebrahim
and Maki Ebrahim, who was in his late, you know, age or late period, possibly 70 to 88 years old. Makino Ibrahim narrated from his teacher jazzy the blue to be obeyed, you see, do not be obeyed, was also in his 70s and 80s. When McKee was a young man who took these from him is he didn't obey obey that had taken his report from Selma sobre, la Salma sobre la was also in his late age, you know, very old 70 to 80, possibly 90 years old when you see the way maid had taken his report from his teacher and Selma. Selma Tahlequah was a student of sort of lost a lot of so much a hobby. So Buhari has
chains entire body that consists of three persons between Buhari and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Then he has changed that consist of four persons.
For example, boccherini raised from his teacher of the lobbying usage of the lobbying your use of the rights from his teacher, Mr. Malik, Malik, bananas. Malik been unjustly raised from his teacher now for now venerates from his teacher Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah bin Omar narration the Prophet for people between Bukhari and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that he has chains that consist of five people within the chain in Bukhari. So there are men so the minimum number is three people between Bukhari and the Prophet and the maximum number is seven is Al Bukhari, between the prophet and say, Imam Bukhari. So a man Bukhari was trying to shorten the chain as as short as possible. So all of
period was very fruitful. I in my head, put a lot of hard work into
from different sources and they authenticated them.
And they made sure the criteria was watertight, nothing could go in and nothing could or nothing could come out. And this is why every single independent, independent muhaddith, who studied Sahil Bukhari and his chains independently, not blindly following Imam Bukhari
independently, when they studied Sahil Bukhari, they could not find a flaw in his criteria. They were forced to submit to His authority in the sense that they said, We cannot challenge Biharis veracity because the criteria and the standard he applied in collecting reports and authenticating them. There is no room for doubt, including someone like Imam Alberni
in the recent age, very recently, not long ago, 20 to 30 years ago, Imam albani studied Bukhari and he found one or two reports he could talk about, that maybe there is some room of discussion in one or two rijal, one of two people who were narrators but the rest of Buhari which is 99.9% have nothing to say. I cannot challenge both parties, veracity. So this is why as how will Hades or Island had these early ones, they put a lot of stress on this. So this had his knowledge spread out throughout Muslim civilization
throughout the Muslim civilization.
Sometimes it was neglected sometimes it was upheld, as hobbled Hades faced many problems at many different
you know, at many different times in different places, because of holding on tightly to the son of the Prophet salallahu salam, for example, manner during the basket period. In the eighth century, Imam Ahmed humble who was
was one of the leaders of us harbored Hadees in his time, brothers, this topic is so vast, it is so huge that I cannot possibly cover the histories and the names and the legacies of us herbal Hadees. I'm only giving you sound bites on this topic. This is an introduction, right? For you to understand the intensity and the magnitude of what I'm talking about.
You must indulge in deep study, you must go back to classical tradition and study the services and the legacy of as Habilis in the early period, in the middle period and in the latter period, then you will see then you will realize and then you will appreciate the services of these people will lie. Otherwise, it's all injustice, talking about them without knowledge without having understood what they did and how they did it is completely you know, and most people unfortunately, even those who sound very learned are talking without having studied them, including myself. I haven't studied them in depth. I have only studied main classical books. And I am completely I was completely blown
away. I was fascinated and I was completely blown away that What right do we have to talk about these people?
Especially when we don't understand the depth of knowledge they had on matters just go too far to the body. One of the most accepted
commentaries on say al Bukhari, if you go through Fortenberry before you die brothers before you die on your learner's when you're going to die, or sisters, try your best to go through fetal body if you want to do justice to the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that will that alone will open your eyes.
For a whole body alone will open your eyes to a world you have you have not known as Muslims.
That aside, coming back to our topic, so as hobbled these continued to serve Hades in different places, places at different times and they did not accept any idea any doctrine
which was outside of the Quran. And the Sunnah.
The Sunnah protects the understanding of the Quran.
Anything that cannot be filtered or that cannot be authenticated, or that cannot be
by the Sunnah, is not Islam. This is why as habla de is in different times and in different places. They were put through a lot of difficulty because they stood up to ideas that were introduced in the name of Islam
without being qualified from the Sunnah. give you two examples. Actually, I can give you three or two or three examples.
from different places and different times, how are these went through difficulties?
So, what happened?
One example is
a mom, I'm an humble man he was put through torture by for all of us have been through abass alma mater, same alma tawakkol. Three of them for 14 years, Mr. Mahajan humbled was tortured. For what? For having
a view, purely based upon the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and not going outside of it. They had come up with ideas that were directly inspired by neo platonism or Greek philosophy or even Aristotelian logic. More, Zilla who were directly inspired by Greek philosophy. And they started to use the Greek philosophy philosophical lens or as cotillion logic to study Islam. You know, when you put a lens on something, you will see what the lens shows you right? If I painted Greek, eventually Greek, Greek Islam Yes, right. If I painted green, it will show me green.
People like Mr. Muhammad or other as herbal Hadees
saw Islam through the lens of the Sunnah, the prophetic tradition.
But the more does it I had put that lens aside and they picked up the lens of Greek philosophy. And they started to look and they came up with this fitna called Falco Quran, the Quran is created. Okay, it was a test for the Allah and Mr. Muhammad endured, the whole of Ah, who tortured him died, they were killed, Mr. Mohammed endured, and his doctrine lived and it still lives to this day. That we do not say the Quran is created rather the Koran is the knowledge of Allah. The Quran is columella we do not say it's created because Allah knowledge does not grow or decrease because lies eternally knowledgeable. Therefore, Koran is, is eternally Allah knowledge, it cannot be created or
lost knowledge cannot be created or lost knowledge cannot be created. So this was the view which is of course from the Quran and the Sunnah. Okay, all Mr. Mohammed the saying if you are presenting a doctrine to me then give me evidence from the Quran or the Sunnah. Right? And the mortal item attempted, you know, for example, in the Quran, Allah obeah was the verse of the Quran. Does anyone know any officer that we have made the Quran in Arabic, right, Jana, there's a Jana Hara lysing We made it. In other words, Allah created the Quran now, Mr. Mohammed refused to accept that particular understanding and he countered it with other reports of course and verses of the Quran. So, this is
how Mr. mahad was put through a lot of torture. Right. And he stood by the Sunnah. And he endured. Another example is shackled Islamism. Same era matale he was put through a lot of he was, of course a cyber Hades. He was one of the other Hadees he had pioneered the science of these of course, he was not perfect, but he was a man of the Sunnah, who upheld the Sunnah who gives precedence over any other system to understand the Quran. So he came up with this because a lot of people were making, you know, pilgrimages to the grave of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So Mr. mana Tamia gave fatwa that it is haram to go to the grave of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with that intention, because
the Hadees tells us the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu tells us that you cannot
do the era
in Islam, except for three places.
mucha Haram, mucha nabawi Masjid, not the cover of NaVi salatu salam, of course when you go to see the masjid with that Nia, you see the macabre, the Rosa of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Rama Baraka, we accept that it is a sacred space for Muslims no doubt, right? But you cannot make the Nia to go to see the grave not the masjid that's against the Sunnah of the Prophet, his own instructions sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right? So a moment with him he was jailed for that. When he gave this fatwa he was jailed because his opponents were very strong. They were politically very strong. Other examples can be given where people were put through a lot of difficulties later on in India. There's
a man called Shah Ismail Shaheed
Shah Ismail, not the shark is made of Sotheby's. I'm not talking about him. I'm talking about another person called a smile at the hallowee his smile Adela. He was the grandson of famous sharks
Well you law
okay. It's my Adana, we stood up to all these with the art people had introduced in the name of Islam RG kind of things, strange ideas, people are celebrating these days and these feasts and you know, you know they're doing things in the name of Islam and giving them Islamic names. So I smile at the end of the rainbow loyalists stood up and he used the Sunnah as his defense.
In fact, some of the people conspired against him with the king.
The king had an elder sister, King and daily King uncover the second Akbar Thani, who was the king of Delhi. Although he was very weak, politically speaking, the British he was
you know, appointed or he was basically left there by the British. The real power was in was in the hands of the British colonial administrators with the king was just a symbolic king in Delhi. Right. So he had an older sister but in Delhi, he had a very strong influence, no doubt. Someone had failed the ears of
of the king. She used to celebrate a thing or
a day called, you know, it was like a celebration called Fatah, Marcus, Anak, in the name of Fatima de la Juana. They used to do you know, certainly used to distribute sweets on a particular day.
So, a mommy smile, Adela, we had, you know, of course, opposed it based upon the Sunnah, that anything you do within Islam has to be qualified islamically it has to be qualified according to the center. So someone said that his smile is against Fatima because he doesn't want us to celebrate Fatima. Look, look how the conspirators, they play the games and it's happening to this day. conspirators. They don't want to know why you're doing what you're doing. They just make you look bad. They want to paint you bad. So they painted him like a hater of Fatima.
So she invited him to a dinner, he went.
And he said, cut the long story short, the sister of the king spoke, and he realized from her language or tone that someone has actually filled her ears about him. So he basically
became very careful in his approach. So
she said to Muhammad is my mom is my daily that, you forbid, you forbid people from celebrating Fatima? is a no, no, no, no, no, no lady. You know, he had a name for the sister of the king. Something Amar, you know, in the auto language, he said, No, it's not mean. It is the Prophet himself, who forbade it. And she was shocked.
She said, What do you mean then? Mohammed is my moto lolly explained what he means. And he gave all the reports against such practices, including Miranda Miranda hawza. Marla salmon Hua Hua Ratan Bukhari Sahih al Bukhari, that anyone who introduces something into Islam and it is not from Islam, it is rejected. Allahu Akbar, she was moved completely. And she said, If this is the case, if the Prophet forbade these things, no one will celebrate them for from now Allahu Akbar, the opponents, the conspirators, they couldn't believe what was happening. So again, you see, the people have had these people have so now went through a lot of difficulties in preserving the sunlight and its
And my time is nearing its end. And again, it's an introduction is a very short introduction, I want to talk about very quickly what happened in India.
All the possibilities, you know, had, in the early times, put a lot of effort into preserving the knowledge of at least in science studies. But this knowledge mainly stayed within the Middle East, or possibly Spain at times, or other parts, but where there was strong influence of the Hanafi school of thought, for example, in Marana, Haro,
Tran transect Sonia are what we call Central Asia. You see, there, the science of Hades was definitely studied, no doubt, but the influence of it
on people's actions
in favor of following the schools rigidly for example. There are of course four schools of thought in Islam main mainly for schools of thought Hanafi shafali, humbly and Maliki right, these four schools, three of them are very close to the sun of the province of Assam, they tried to keep them the keep themselves close to the sun of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. I'm not saying that
Have you completely divorced? I'm not saying that like, but there are there is a huge difference in how these three schools Maliki Shafi and humbly approach the Sunnah
to what the honeybees have or how they approach the Sunnah. Of course there's a difference. There is a huge difference. That's why in when you look at the jurisprudence of these three schools and the Hanafi school, you see the differences and this is not a criticism of the honey school. This is I'm stating facts. I'm stating facts.
So, what happened after the Mongol invasions, because India was not hanafy. Initially, India was not hanafy in India, first of all, when Mohammed bin Qasim had come from
Arab from Arabia,
Muslims established a government in Sindh
or south of Punjab for almost three centuries, Muslims govern this region for three centuries, they never came into mainland India. But then,
in the 11th century, in the late 10th, and early 11th century came the ghaznavi invasions. Mahmud ghaznavi, who was Shafi by affiliation, invaded India from the north few times. Right. How, why is another question, we can discuss it in another setting, but I'm talking about how
the science of Hadees was treated in India. And what were the historic causes of that.
Mahmoud. Despite his successful invasions of India did not establish a foothold or a stronghold in India, except the city of Lahore. City of Lahore was established by the rest of its This is why a lot of people
in the 11th century traveled to Lahore and a lot of the sophies came from the Middle East to live in Lahore. One of them was a famous man called siad Uthman hijiri, also known as datatype. Okay, and there's a huge tomb in Lahore attributed to him, which is called data science data Darbar, right, he he traveled to Lahore in the 11th century CE II, and he wrote a book called cacheable Mahjoub, it is known as one of the
earliest defenses of Sufi ism right. So, you can see how strong the influence of Sufi ism was on India and how Sufi had brought this version of Islam to India, right. And then came the Delhi Sultanate, which happened in the late 11th to 12th century and early 13th century. So, a voltage was another group of voltage led by a man called Mohammed bin Salman, Shahabuddin avoori. they invaded India from the north and they established a stronghold in Delhi cut the long story short, I'm summarizing things very first of all, he was killed, having conquered North northern northern India parts of it. And having established his his stronghold in Delhi, he was assassinated in his tent in,
in Pakistan, current day Pakistan, his slaves had come to power and they became the most powerful kings in India. Why, very quickly, soon after his slaves to power, like the Mamelukes of Egypt had taken power after the you beats. What happened in India simultaneously at the same time, slaves came to power kipchak Turks Turkic slaves were bought, bought from the markets of Central Asia became the Kings after the master had died. So the first very powerful photon was Sultan shamsudeen ill took mesh who came to power in 2006. And he governed a government till 1236. It was during his time when chinggis Khan or Ganga Khan had invaded Central Asia, which was predominantly Muslim, and Eastern
Iran, or Eastern Turkistan. And he had completely devastated this region. So what happened was, and April Athena is writing at the same time in Moscow, where he saw some refugees coming from Bukhara and Samarkand. And he explained or described the condition how the Mongols had treated them.
So at this time, a huge influx of scholars, literati
artists and you know, people who
artists you know, you know, all kinds of people skilled labor, all kinds of people they migrated to India because of the Mongol invasions Mongols were devastating everywhere they went.
We can pray Maghrib in few minutes inshallah Allah I'm finishing very quickly. So the Mongols had come in
And they had completely devastated
Central Asia transect Sonia and lands beyond the oxus River within the territory of Iran, Iran was completely Sunni.
Iran. As late as the 16th century, Iran was 90% Shafi, did you know that brothers? Did you know that now you know that right? Iran was 90% Shafi
until Shai smile a safavi invaded Iran with his armies in 1501. What was it What was the year 1501. This is the point when Iran history or destiny changed,
unfortunately, and it took the Sotheby's and their successors three centuries to convert Iran into Shiism by force and they don't deny it. This is these are historic facts. 90% of Iran was Sunni Shafi 90% major scholars of Islam came from Iran, for Houdini Razi
from Tehran Ray from the city called Ray was Tehran. Okay.
Ivana ghazali Persian, he wrote in Persian,
okay. And later on many more scholars were originally Iranian, many, many huge scholars right to change. So, Iran at this time was of course, Shafi and a lot of people came into India, but the majority of the Hanafi scholars some moron or so, because the Hanafi the Sultan's were under the influence heavily and the Hanafi school was made the standard school in India. So the science of these was unfortunately neglected in favor of hunt the Hanafi Fiqh. So slowly and gradually the science of how this kind of faded away and the Hanafi Fiqh the books of Hannah Vick were taught in all the modalities under the dominion of the daily Sultanate for a very long time. Occasionally,
some people did challenge here and there, some of the ideas, some of the practices that were upheld in India, for example, there was a famous debate that took place in the court of Mohammed bin dogleg in 1320s.
You know, who knows this famous shrine in Delhi in India called Islamic Deen.
It is attributed to a man called sama Dino Leah, who was a Sufi
thinker, a Sufi activist or practitioner, and he belonged to the chisti school of thought, right. And he's a very famous figure in India very popular figure. In fact, some of the kings tried to get him
on their side, he outlived eight daily Sultanate kings, he had a very long life and he had a famous shrine, what we call the bar, a court
parallel running in parallel to the dailies ultimate court in Delhi. So another bar was in his amorino he has the bar, he was into kawari singing the praise of Allah with some music and some dancing included because he will Sufi, right some of the other mama in the time of Mohammed and Pollock. Now don't forget, why was this happening against some against some influence of the Sun I had come in, why one of the students of shekel Islamic with a Mia had come to India at that time. And one of the scholars recent scholars from India thinks that because of this Tamia influence in India, things started to change because Mohammedan Tagalog was directly influenced by his thought.
So Mohammed in Tagalog started to basically ask the Sufis to change their ways. Firstly, prove what you're doing is Islam. Firstly, first of all, and when they couldn't, then on top of luck, came down very harsh on them harshly. So one of the incidents was this discussion that took place in his court on the permissibility of Samar, singing and dancing in Sufi shrines, some of the allama who were of course influenced by the the influence of shekel Islamic and Tamia, possibly potentially, they argued against some that this is not Islamic. This is not the way Islam works. On the other hand, is amo Dino Leah had we unfortunately, we don't have many details of this particular debate what really
happened, but the debate did take place. later on. There were scholars who are writing on Hades during the Mughal period, okay, there was a very famous scholar called chef
Abdullah Huck had this Abdallahi he was alive he was born in the time of October, gelato did Muhammad Akbar the Mughal emperor and he died in the times or in the period when orang Zavala was governing. He had written commentaries on Bukhari in Persian, but again, he remained us
staunch hanafy he still favored the Hanafi school of thought over what the sun might dictate. To the contrary, possibly.
The real change in India happened after a man called Shah wallula dan Levy, who had come back from Hejaz, having studied there for 14 months with the allamah of Hejaz. Having taken the knowledge of the Sun not directly from them, he started to change things he started to challenge practices
conducted in the name of Islam in the Indian subcontinent at that time, and he went through a lot of difficulty in this regard. He started to write commentaries on Hadees. He was one of the first people to write a commentary in Persian and Arabic on the motto of Imam Malik to show the hanafis of India and other view that of course, you have this hanafy view but they look at this. And then he wrote a commentary on Mata mama is called Mustafa and Mustafa, both Persian and Arabic, he wrote in Persian and Arabic, and then he penned many more works, this influence in the 19th century and was Chava Lula doing something new is the question a lot of people nowadays say that
the school actually is a new invention in India.
No doubt, as hobble Hades. Hades did not exist in India, no doubt, but the influence? Was it new? Is it a new idea? Is it an innovation? No, US herbal Hadees or other Hadees in India, we're actually arguing to go back to the original teachings of the early generations. How we were in the first three centuries, we instead of abandoning the teachings and the method of the first three centuries, we need to go back to it. So we had this movement in India, which escalated of which kind of, you know, how can I put it became very influential and big. In the 19th century following shower, you lost teachings, they were inspired by no doubt by shower EULA and other teachers at the time. In the
19th century, this movement came became very big. And what was this movement asking for? They were asking for to go back to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, if anything, challenges or opposes the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Salam or cannot be qualified, according to the Hadith of the Prophet Salah Salem, it needs to be abandoned. And where does this idea come from? It comes from the earliest generations of the of the Sahaba, Tommy and Tommy. So it was not a new idea. So all these movement in the 19th century was actually a revivalist movement, not a reformist movement. A lot of the people that tried to claim that this was actually a reformist movement, which tried to
reform Islam, the Islamic established order of the four schools of thought, No, no, no, no. It was a revivalist movement. It remains so to this day. In the 19th century, they were pioneers who stood up to a lot of the major art and innovations that had spread in India. Some of the names I want to mention, are, of course, the son of shower Lula del V. His name was shot Abdelaziz Adela matale he moved on slightly from where his father left.
And then the grandson and the nephew of chabela Z's grandson of showered in London after your sharp disease was Mohammed Ismail, a deli. I've already mentioned he openly came out in public for the first time in India and he condemned a lot of the practices in the name of Islam, and he upheld the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he asked people to go back to the Sunnah study, the prophet study his Sunnah study, most people were ignorant of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. They claimed to love the Prophet. We love the Prophet, we love the Prophet, we love the Prophet, we love the Prophet, but when you asked them about the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how he lived,
nothing, they have no knowledge. So people like Mohammed Ismail stood up. And then later Later on, we had pioneers, scholars of Hades who had studied Hades in depth and I'm finishing very soon inshallah people like, so you know, zero Santa gallery, Mata La La was a giant of Hades, who was born in the year 818 100, who was born in the 1800s. And he died in 1902. Allah had given him a very long life. When was he born 1800 and died in nine in 1902. He lived over 100 years, right. And for that reason, he had hundreds of students in India who took out this or who had this view to areas in India, people had never heard of this before. This is why it was new for them, because they had been
fed with the Sufi slash Shia slash, you know, all kinds of things version of Islam. When they heard this, the view of the other ladies it was new for them.
Hold on a second. What kind of Islam? Is this pure Islam?
Nobody the art no innovations?
no mollet no Fatima kissa Henoch? No teesri? No Charles Yami, the all these kinds of things you know people have invented in the name of Islam yet. They were shocked. They were shocked. They actually suspected that. But these people were educated people, they were academics. They had studied the so now the prophets, Allah Salam and the early tradition, and they were trying to explain to the masses in India, this is not new.
In fact, what you're doing is new.
In the grand scheme of things, in the history of Islam, these things you have invented are new. What we are bringing you to you is the old order, the early order, the order of the ASLEF, the order of the early generations of Islam. So people will vary. In some cases, people got inspired, and they followed this way. And in other cases, they opposed, unfortunately, because the movies
as they always do, and I'm not saying more. I mean, when I say movies, I mean those john Hill,
ignorant, uneducated elements within the Indian subcontinent, whose earning is attached to their stomach.
You wonder, whose provisions whose living is attached to their stomach. They are very superficial in the knowledge of Islam, and they don't know anything other than what they have learned in the madrasa. They started to oppose the the revivalist movement of analogies because it was kicking their stomachs. It was kicking their stomachs. There is no comparison between Protestant
the rise of the Protestant opposition to Catholic Church and what happened in India, there's no comparison. I'm not trying to compare it, but it is very similar.
What were the Protestants saying? The Catholics are corrupt?
They are making money out of Christianity. They have made an order. They have made up this tradition which is not biblical, which doesn't go back to the Scripture. Right? Likewise, 100 of these were trying to explain to the Indian masses that this current order in India, superficial, Sufi Shia version of Islam is actually not real Islam. real Islam is that Islam of the companions and Tabata green and, and and tavini and ima who came later as Habilis? The real pure Islam is with us herbal Hadees. This is exactly what they what they
argued. And then another man who was very prominent, he was a king of one of the states in India. His name was Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan. And you can see his picture there. This is a man this is a man I'm talking about. This is the website he was actually a king
of a state in India, he had become a king. His story is very, very interesting. You should listen to my lecture on him. It's on YouTube, Nawab Sadiq Hassan Khan, okay. It I think it is the most detailed lecture on YouTube on this person. You will see how interesting this man was and his story is cut the long story short, because because he became a king. He established a printing press in Bhopal in a state called Bhopal. And he distributed books free of charge among the scholars of India, and because of this, the British Raj was unhappy with him and they deposed him and put him under house arrest, and he died under house arrest. But he had done a great job in spreading the
sun, not the knowledge of the sun in India, and he was directly influenced by the thought of Mr. McCarney in Yemen. And in fact, he had invited a huge scholar of Hades to India, known as
us. So you Hossein been Machina lanseria Yamani. He was a huge scholar of Hadees, from a place called Hodeidah in Yemen. Okay. And he was a direct student of Imam show Ghani. If not his son, he was a direct student of Imam Shogun, he was a very old man. And he was invited to Bhopal in India, from Yemen. So in Yemen, he came and he taught students. So the students of India on Hadees found two great teachers. One of them was Mohsin Hussain, minoxidil and sarili. Amani and the other one was setting the zeros in Delhi, in Delhi. So what was the outcome very quickly, and I'm going to end now because we want to primitive what was the outcome? The outcome was two of the most important two
of the most important
to the most important commentaries on the Hadith literature. I mentioned phulbari. Right. Right. Yes, you remember, April hydrolysed, Kalani, but in India
The best ever.
commentary of a teramachi Sanjana teramachi and Santa Susana Nova Buddhahood was written in India by the students of these two teachers I mentioned.
Waze is a commentary on Sona teramachi, which was written in India by chef after Ramadan Mubarak fury, not shakes of Iraq man, one of his predecessors, one of his relatives possibly is related to him because they form robotic port Mubarak faurecia Abdul Rahman Mubarak puri had written a commentary on Susana teramachi and he was a direct student of chakra zero center the Halloween and Hossein minmatar in St. in Boston. Alan sarili Imani. The other commentaries and is called on in Mahmoud Obama Booth was a commentary written on sunon of Abu Dawood. And it was written by a man called shamsul. Huck are the my buddy, again, a student of these two teachers. This is the outcome.
And these two commentaries stand as the best two commentaries on these two collections of halys To this day, so popular and so impressive was the work of Sheikh Abdul Rahman Mubarak fury.
That when the Arabian Allah heard about this commentary, and they read it, immediately, they started to write letters to Shaykh.
Abdul Rahman, Mubarak puri to give ajaz us to give a josas to the Saudi Lama. We have documentary evidence of chef
Mohammed Ibrahim, the teacher of jacobin. bars, Sheikh Mohammed Ibrahim Alisha, the teacher of sharpen bars, he wrote, he wrote a letter to check Mubarak free requesting and a Java from him. Can you imagine that? The Mufti of halb hollub you know the Mufti of Aleppo, the Mufti of halibut, he wrote a letter to check Mubarak for asking for images and this, this is the achievement the US herbal Hadees of India had, specifically speaking. So there is a lot I can talk about. This was an introductory lesson, brothers. The final point I want to make before we end this lecture is gone on for long, nearly an hour. I want to request that instead of wearing badges of hobbies and as hobbies
Who are these people who indulge in the study of Hades? Most people who wear the badge of Hades, they wear the badge just because they refer you then
or they do a mean bizarre
are they do Fatiha. Hopefully, ma'am, some of the opinions of the other ladies, right? Because they practice these opinions. They believe there is no you're not. If you're not indulging in the study of Hades. If you're not part of the process of protecting, authenticating, explaining, demystifying transmitting the Hadees if you're not part of the chains, you're not one of the other hobbies you think you are. You may be following them in some opinions. But actually, Truly speaking, technically, technically speaking, you are not allowed Hadees if you're not indulging in the study of these, because you are simply not able to defend this tradition. If you were cornered. If you
were asked questions on the Hadith literature on the Hadith tradition, would you be able to defend it? I'm talking about the most people who are called No, no, they will talk about Yeah, photography mom.
I mean majority people think being 100 This means you know,
you basically do these things and your analogies or have the Akita of which which is which is great, which is fine. But you must indulge in the signs of Hades to qualify the badge. Thank you so much for listening. Well, hello, Donna. Anil hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
Let's pray Allah
and then after the Salah brothers we will have q&a for 10 minutes and then we can go according to the plan of our share, share use of Okay, so let's do this all of us inshallah.
I do apologize for going going over time. That's normal to me. But some of these things are very important. We have to cover them.
A shadow Mohammedan Russell in law.
Proceed to the rest of the program in sha Allah.
Allah Deborah's finishing Sharla First,
the exact meaning as as I said earlier, the mother asked what is the exact meaning of this? As I explained earlier that these technically means the people of Hades and Hades is, of course, the prophetic tradition to put it in simple terms. It is the prophetic tradition.
Technically, it means the people who indulge in the study of Hades and its practice, yes.
Okay. Right. Anyone else? Yes.
Yes, absolutely. Because Sona and Hades is actually the same thing. Okay. They are used interchangeably. So not simply again, what is the meaning of sonar? sonar means the way it means the way the tsunami the way Okay, whose way? So not Rasulullah? Right. Salallahu alaihe salam. So the way of the progress of Absalom, how do you get to the way of the prophets Allah Islam through the Hadees tradition? There is no other way to know the son of the prophet SAW Allah. So that's why the people, people who use Asana to jamaa, it has to include the study of Hades. If you are not evil Gemma, then if you and you don't study the Hadees and practice it, then are you actually really
truly not evil Jamal. So, we have no problem with the term and also not evil Juma Al Hamdulillah. By the grace of Allah, we are not evil Jamal, okay. But nowadays, a lot of people who claim to be an Asana are actually claiming that because they are better.
In reality, they are often better. You see, why do they put so much stress on being Asana? We are the Asana. We are the Asana. Because they are indulging in VEDA they are and to qualify the way that they want to call themselves on Asana. Yeah.
Anyone else? Yes, yeah.
Some groups spread this rumor or this misconception about the other hand is that we ignore the four schools and we follow a fifth school. No, that's not true. We follow them had the theme.
We follow the understanding understanding of the scene. Okay. We don't follow, do apologize.
We don't follow
one particular school, because
any mom can get it wrong.
It is very possible that any man can get an issue wrong. Or maybe the information never reached him. And when the information reached him, he changed his opinion. Right? So we are not against the study of school. In fact, we encourage the study of schools. We encourage the study of thick, but
our actions in Islam must be qualified by the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, and the best people who know the Sunnah the authentics. And this is very important. When you follow a Hadees. It has to be authentic. I'll give you one example in this case.
This is a very good example to talk about. Where do you put your hands on Salah? When you stand when in prayer? Where do you put your hands
mohabbatein they have this view that we put our hands on our chest, a lot of work about why
and the overwhelming majority of them at the scene. They fail with this view. Why? You ask them why
Because when you scrutinize reports on this matter, they are all weak. Every single one of them is weak. There is no authentic report when I say authentic I mean say, although some people claim that there is no huband there is a report from one of the companions thing is
if I'm not mistaken as Madeira beach Java,
there is a report from him that the province or someone placed his hand on the chest. But even that Hades has problems with it. It has weaknesses in it. So why did the magazine chose that had these two practice over others?
There are four views on this issue. You put your hands touch the surah under the naval reports on it all dive
on a surah on top of naval. Okay.
All reports on this matter? dive. Okay. Focus surah above surah which is above the navel. You put your hands there. Reports are the IEF Allah sorry.
The final position is that resource Allah placed his hands on the chest. Allah sorry.
Evil even reports on this are
weak in the sense that there are weaknesses, but they reach the level of hassen. So out of all the weak reports, the strongest reports we have in on this matter, are indicating that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam placed his hands on the chest. Other scholars believe that these reports actually say they are so he, depending on the criteria being used. So the strongest reports on this issue are that you put your hands on the chest. That's why the magazine followed this view, because the most authentic information they could get in this matter was that the Prophet placed his hands on the chest. That's why, okay, and everything else, even every single matter. You talk about when you go
and check the view of the magazine, their view is based upon the authenticity of the Hadees. If the Hadees is authentic, they were accepted. But what did what what the schools do sometimes, they unfortunately, to support the view, they follow a weak report. Because the view was formed before the collections of the Hadees.
One of the Imams he put out a view on a certain matter. And authentic reports on that matter had not yet reached him. This is the point. A lot of 100 view brothers fail to grasp they cannot imagine how can you mama Barney will not have this nice? This is impossible.
Even for the Sahaba it was possible. How is it not possible in our family? A Sabra sold every single zombie to never have every didn't have access to every Hadees
not every single Sahabi had access to every single piece of the professor, because professors are saying different things in different places to different people. So as hobbies president who got the report others maybe 1015 or 20 of them don't know.
So this report was taught by as a hobby maybe in Syria later on, or maybe in Yemen, maybe in Iraq. One of his followers then reported these back to other people. Okay, hold on a second. We didn't know this, but he says no, my authority. Is this a hobby. I took it from the Mojave, and sabroso Coloma Dude, this is the basic idea. In the signs of Hades, all the companions of the progresses are more trustworthy, when they report from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That doesn't mean that they are infallible, we don't believe as hover pseudo infallible, right. But we believe that vendere transmitted knowledge from the Prophet kulu module. Why? Because they could not have
possibly lied in the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam
because others were still alive.
Number One reason is because they were themselves trustworthy, upright people, trustworthy people. None of them were known to be liars.
And the second reason is that even if they were to make a mistake about the some of the progress or some others were alive to correct them hold on a second, where did you get this wrong? I never heard from the prophet or actually prophets and said something to the contrary, or they can give complimentary information. No, no, no, no, hold on your understanding is not correct, because I heard the promising this this so that explains it further. So again, it's a very big science. So we what was the question the science of the wind ignore, ignore the schools. We don't ignore the schools. We study the we turn to the schools very carefully. But we follow authentic information. We
only base our opinions, or aqeedah or action on authentic information. And only the Mojave. Thien can authentic.
From can authenticate information because the fuqaha and morphine and
Koran did not necessarily possess that knowledge, that expertise or that ability to authenticate the police literature, only the scene had pioneered it. For that reason we take them ahead the seem to be most prominent sources of our knowledge because they authenticated the information for us.
Some people say to the British
Some people say that the British invented these, I can give you reason, actually evidence to the contrary, the British were cracking down on the other ladies. My great grandfather's grandfather was one of the leaders of these in India, and he was put on put under house arrest for seven years. chefman hardeen. Mr. Roger Dean, my great grandfather's grandfather was a direct student of Soviet noziroh St. Louis, the one I mentioned earlier, and I have paper, I have papers to prove this. I have actual papers. I have documented evidence to prove this. And if anyone wants to know, to the contrary that 100 heads were hunted by the British authorities, because they saw them as
troublemakers. Is it because they were terrorists or extremist? No, it's because they wanted to liberate India from the oppressive and the tyrannical rule of the British Raj, which was very oppressive, which is very tyrannical, right? You don't believe me? Read a book written by a Hindu Shashi Tharoor eurosai. True. There is a there is an author from India. His name is Shashi Tharoor, he has recently written a book on the British Raj in India, go and check it out. Don't believe the analogies, check it out. And you will see why the Indians were suffering. And not only that.
You see, what I don't like about some of these claims is that a lot of the people, they glorify the actions and the deeds of people who belong into their school. And they belittle the sacrifices of the you know, the sacrifices of people belonging to the the school. And I've seen this pattern between the deobandis and the daddies both are guilty of this.
Both are guilty of this. We belittle the sacrifices of the deobandis or the founding fathers of their bodies like molana, Kasim nano T, and a phantom and mothering and I mean, we have disagreements with them. We have big disagreements with these.
shoe, right? But were the enemies of Islam?
Did they not give sacrifices for Islam in India during the British period? Of course they did. Like the elders of the other Hadees did. So we must be we must do justice and acknowledge virtue and sacrifice where it exists. We should not be bigots biased and prejudiced to an extent that we start to become blind to the good work of others. No, we don't do that. This is one of the virtues of the Hadees that we are adjust people who do justice.
these were not an invention of the British to the contrary.
Shower EULA, Talia had already laid the foundations of the revivalist movement that came to be known as the, this movement in India before the British came to power. Okay. shabalala died in 1761. And the British won the first battle in 1757, which was the Battle of plasti Shah Lula had already written his works before the Battle of policy took place and he had already laid the foundations for this revivalist movement. And amazingly, in India,
in particular, in India, the this movement traces its lineage back to spiritual knowledge, spiritual lineage back to the school of Shaolin Allah, Muhammad Allah tala, he is the man who laid the foundations in India of the School of this and this is another discussion itself. And another question very quickly I can go into that.
Someone for someone to be 100 Hadees you have to be a muhaddith it is true, if you
every mahad This is a hidden Hadees
but not every 100 Hadees is muhaddith This is the answer to this question. Okay. You may not be a muhaddith. Right. But you have a good knowledge of the sources of Islam, you have good solid knowledge of the isnaad you have good knowledge of this asset. You have solid grounds to be to call yourself al Hadees and
Those who understand the tradition and why they follow it, there are also these. So these can have categories, the alama
then those semi allama, then the art and the alarm. Okay, those who follow the view of the Maha dcim That's it. Okay? So not every 100 Hadees someone who loves studies and indulges in the study has to be had this you What do you call a person who is actually on his way to become had this is normal had this year? Were you gonna call him What
were you gonna call him? mishmash?
You're not gonna call a mishmash, are you? Right? He is someone who follows them at the scene and day view on Islam. And he's on his way to become a mohawk this. So every single person who is alone had his hair must have this ambition in himself that I want to increase I want to improve. I am satisfied with this knowledge. And even when you become an artist or a scholar of Hades, there are times when these comes to you and you change your opinion because you are the art of Hades. That is the spirit of alien Hades. We are not rigid, biased prejudice people. When a report comes to us we change Hello, sorry. I thought this report was authentic. But it's actually the truth. Now it's been
proved. We have a scholar from Pakistan who passed away recently. She has the barrel is a very big scholar in Elmore Riyal, and many people, you know, criticized him for changing his opinions. In fact, that's a virtue.
That's a virtue in him when he finds authentic information. And when he finds himself to be an error, he changes opinion, what do you want him to do? I've been proven wrong. Now I'm going to stick to my opinion know that I am right. Even though my opinion is an error, I am right. You want him to do that? No.
In fact, changing your opinion in the light of the Sona or the authentication of the summer. This is a virtue This shows that this person is a real artist who loves the professor lesson to an extent that he will put his ego aside and he will follow the authentic tradition of the progress on a solemn
what is the difference between other headings in salary the brother asked, technically, there is no different salaries under the title to refer back to the early generations For example, we follow the way of the salary What does that mean? The wheel the salary was the Hades the way if this was our this, okay? Like for example, who even sort of has categories like we have our w wb, based upon the hudy sort of solar system again, who are the some of the solar for the first three generations our our solar system said, Pharaoh, NASS economy, sama, sama, sama de Luna home, the best people of my generation, and the ones that come after and the ones that come after, right? According to the Torah
services, Salaam salaf, are the first three generations. Now show me one of the four schools in them.
Gone? Show me one of the four schools in them, they were following the prophetic tradition, whenever they could authenticate information, they followed it, they may not have all the information, which they did not. But they followed what they authenticated. Likewise, Bukhari and Muslim has been authenticated for us and the Bulgarian Muslim and other sources, the books of some Sahaja they have rubber stamp, they have the rubber stamp on them at the scene colosse we follow them. We don't need to invent new things. We don't have to. We can't. In fact, we don't have the knowledge to invent new things. And we're not inventing anything. So solve or the Salafi view. Okay, it's basically
the view that we should refer back to the Sunnah of the prophet of Islam, studied by the first three generations, but at the same time,
there is something I must highlight that a lot of the Salafis have this misconception that being a selfie is only basically doing those things, you know, like for the ficou opinions and some aqeedah opinions, and gun everyone else down who disagrees with you. This is not Salafi. These people are not Salafi. They're actually extremists. There are a lot. I call them a lot. People who wish they haven't studied. Most of these people haven't actually studied. They don't know what the Sunnah is. They haven't studied the books, they haven't studied the classical tradition. That's why they are so harsh. And so you know, extreme in the approach to others, right? The more knowledge you have, the
more soft and tolerant you are towards other Muslims. That you will see the grace of Allah, what we call the grace of Allah, Allah are graceful, they are not harsh and repulsive. Like some of these boys walking around, they have found Islam newly and they start you know, they have read couple of pamphlets on Islam and they start pulling the thobes above the ankles. And you know, when they stand for Salah they stretch their legs as far as possible. You know, some of these boys they think they are like a mama
And they're like, you know you're not you're nothing.
understand who you are. Acknowledge who you are, you are not even a student of Islam. And then you get fatwas. No, sorry. shut yourself in a room for 10 years, study hard. Get to the alama then start talking about Islam. Otherwise Don't open your mouth. Okay? call yourself Salafi no problem. How were the were bad but qualified. Every Salafi must study. If you're not studying, you're not a Salafi. You're a cool fee. Seriously, you know, coffee is?
It's an ice cream. Yeah. You may look like a coffee ever. You're not Salafi. Study hard. study for 10 years at least.
And then open your mouth and Islam. This is my opinion. It's like if you went to a medical college, and you have only studied couple of pamphlets like this, these pamphlets and then you go and tell the tell the the lecturer Move aside.
your move aside, I'm gonna give a lecture on you know, human anatomy, or something like that.
They're gonna laugh at you, right? So why do you treat Islam differently? What do you think Islam is? Is it any less than neuroscience or astrophysics, Islam, when you indulge in a llama Rizal and science are these then you then you realize what a scientist is? Then you see the value of the scholars in the past, the names of whom you use very conveniently. So I'm talking about these people, these people, but Salafi and these technically there is no difference. They are asking for the same thing. They are doing the same thing. They should be doing the same thing. If they're doing things differently, then it's a problem with people. It's not it's not a problem with idea. The
Okay, moms define
the 40 moms to our knowledge did not differ in Akita. No, they did not differ in Akita. There was no difference among the 40 mom and that those people who claim the difference either they have to prove it, they have no proof for it.
That's it. Okay. So that was the last question rose.
Okay, good. Good, good.
Yeah, Wahhabi was a name used in the 19th century for the first time by the British
Raj, not by the British directly, but some of the people
during the British period in 19th century to tarnish anyone who talked about the Sunnah, or going back to the original Islam because Sheikh Mohammed Abdul Wahab had launched that very same idea in Hejaz, that we should not be venerating these bore. Okay, we should not be, you know, doing things in the name of Islam without actually qualifying them to be Islam. And he launched this movement, and his movement had taken
a political form and the Arabian Peninsula. In fact, it became a military movement because one of the leaders from the nice the area called Maria, you know, the ancestors of the house of Saud, he had supported the chef, and then obviously, they established their own order. So anyone's speaking the similar language of the same language in India was labeled our hobby. Okay. But they were not necessarily Wahhabi. They were not following Sheikh Mohammed Abdul Wahab, they were actually talking of the same ideas in a different way. This was the Nawab Sadiq Hassan Khan. The man I showed you on the picture, you know, is a was a man who put on trial by the British for being a Wahhabi. And in
the court, he said, I am not a Wahhabi. I'm not following Mohammed bin Abdul Wahab I am following my own convictions. In fact, he showed his writings that I am actually following the show carny view. I am. If anything, I'm a show carnist I am not a Wahhabi. So this is a derogatory term used by people
nowadays to label people who talk of the Sun not upholding the Sunnah. So you can either ignore it or you can adopt it, but I don't think we should take it seriously.
