00:14:07 --> 00:14:08

Last time

00:14:09 --> 00:14:23

we were discussing in the Qurani character we discussed about OLFA er which is, you know, having a very affectionate connection within the community within yourself and your home and household and everyone

00:14:24 --> 00:14:37

we gave us we gave ourselves two examples. So we talked about ayat from the Quran, right where we said that you know, even if Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not anyone else, if Prophet says Adam wants to spend the entire

00:14:38 --> 00:14:59

treasures of this world, to unite the hearts and to create affection and love and bond, you would not have been able to do that. Alright, and then Allah says Allah can know Allah Allah by Now Allah is the one that made that connection. And there's a very powerful story that is mentioned in the in our books. This is in reference to

00:15:00 --> 00:15:20

Olga, and this is very, very relevant to most of the Dawa scene, right where you might have a Khilafah you might have differences. It is mentioned that, you know, there was a scholar by the name of UNICEF and Abdullah and he was a very, very famous scholar

00:15:21 --> 00:15:24

and he was a very top student of Imam Shafi

00:15:25 --> 00:15:32

whatsoever Eunice Moussa, his shattering, so there was a masala and because Unifor Yunus was quite

00:15:33 --> 00:15:38

smart. He fundamentally disagreed with Imam Shafi on Ms. Ella

00:15:41 --> 00:15:52

PACOM of all the Benoit Tanaka, Doris our Raja Ali Beatty, so he got so upset with his teacher shot Imam Shafi. He got up and he's like, You know what, it's okay. I just need space I'm gonna leave. He went home.

00:15:54 --> 00:16:01

A filet hubba Imam Shafi really beta Yunus in the middle of the night, Imam Shafi goes to Eunice's house.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:07

And he says to Him for allah who Yunus that gimana

00:16:08 --> 00:16:08


00:16:09 --> 00:16:10

al Messiah.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:12

Hundreds of

00:16:13 --> 00:16:17

edicts and issues we're all united upon.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:27

Are two foreign owners a Latin and just one issue that you have with me? We separate the because of one dispute one era

00:16:29 --> 00:16:49

Yeah, Jonas led to how well in the soccer field Khalil FTF Do not try to win every actigraph every dispute every difference of opinion, don't try to win over it. This is golden words for him from Imam Shafi that you're not going to win every laugh. Right? Especially if the FT laugh is with your wife.

00:16:50 --> 00:16:56

Right? I'm from the 2% I win all the FT laughs Right. Right. Agreed, right?

00:16:57 --> 00:16:59

Bryce if Uncle agrees with that.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:07

point five. Yeah, I'm the law. Right? So the laugh when it comes to those matters. Don't try to win every ft laugh.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:16

But yeah, and then sometimes, guests will follow the LM in Cassville MacDuffie.

00:17:18 --> 00:17:23

Sometimes if there's a open argument happening between the two individuals

00:17:24 --> 00:17:28

write it is actually better that you lose

00:17:29 --> 00:18:02

than you win that moment. Because in losing, you might win heart the heart. Now, one important part we need to understand here, this hadith or this reference, or there is a secondary reference that is generally given, which says where Imam Shafi said that oh, by the way, if you ever hear a statement from me, that is opposite or in contradiction with the statement of how the cover of this person ie prophets SLM the cover cover, then take my words and throw them on the wall.

00:18:03 --> 00:18:05

Whether it is this argument,

00:18:06 --> 00:18:09

this discussion or that discussion of Imam Shafi

00:18:10 --> 00:18:15

keep in mind, those discussions are not taking place in front of an hour.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:25

It's not a general conversation, this is a very specific conversation with his top student who is probably more knowledgeable than any scholar live today.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:57

So he is telling him that right? Many people will read this and they say, Oh, by the way, so that means if the laugh is valid, and now we can, as was the case, like in on Sunday, you know, there was an FDF there was an issue, but again, I tried explaining to the brother after the breakfast, he didn't understand. And at the end of it, it was like it was a very reactionary thing that you know, if this is the issue, and this is your position, then after this there will be no salon outside between you and me.

00:18:58 --> 00:19:34

I said have you that's your choice. That's not my choice. I can't you know, I II This is not your field, you're a computer programmer, you should hold your ft lab because you're not the person of this. This is between the two individuals. I'll give you an example of that way man Tom came. I don't know if you guys noticed. He led the salah according to the shattering myth of although he's a very strong humbly you read Bismillah out loud loud, right Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim out loud because that's the predominant even when the imam in the morning recited in Fudger right. He is the predominant opinion within the Shafi school is that you read with Smilla Rahmanir Rahim outloud

00:19:34 --> 00:19:59

right? That's a minority opinion, but within the madhhab data, so he recited it and I asked him I said Why did you do that? He said I just just just out of respect that since you are predominantly Shafi, in your opinion, I didn't know why and to make you feel uncomfortable. Right? So the way this works is generally whenever the Imam arrives, right, that Imam shows respect, not to the congregation, but to the Imams madhhab

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

Right there's a there's a fundamental difference here that we must understand. It doesn't matter what the congregation's madhhab is that is completely irrelevant.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:26

It's the madhhab of the Imam that the congregation is supposed to follow. Right now you don't change your mother up and then you know if there is a mess Allah that is predominant majority opinion or even format hubs out of the four three are on one opinion. Right then you try to follow something like that, right?

00:20:28 --> 00:20:36

So he says for Ariana, and cus will loop Oh, lamb in Cassville mouth. Sometimes winning hearts over is better than winning the moment.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:43

Yeah, you want us law to hurt them? I'll do Sue or Eunice don't break bridges.

00:20:44 --> 00:21:12

Don't break bridges when in these law firms don't break your bridges. I let the ballet to her whatever to her. Many of these bridges you had built and you had crossed over multiple times back and forth. Many of these bridges you had crossed over multiple times. So don't break those passages in pathways. But Obama gradually out that a Yo Ma. Sometimes you might need to come back over that bridge one day. You might need that bridge one day so don't break that.

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

And then he says

00:21:17 --> 00:21:25

it Caroll Hapa Amon, if it is an open mistake, hated, you should have hatred towards an open mistake.

00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

Walla Walla Takara Elmo

00:21:30 --> 00:21:32

and don't hate the one who is committing the mistake.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:38

This adverb is one of the almost like last adverb in our times.

00:21:39 --> 00:21:44

Literally, we hate the act, but not the person committing the act ever.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:49

Because that's not your job and my job to evaluate him.

00:21:51 --> 00:22:01

We hate that person. So we hate the act. We hate the place where the act is taking place. We show that you know we're not happy with this particular thing. But we never hate the person.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:24

A hatred towards the person because of their actions closes the doors of any rectification. How are you even going to rectify that person if you have high yield? And if you really care about that person, eventually, you're going to have to build a bridge with that person. But if you have hate towards him, Where are you going to begin? Which Avenue Are you going to take towards them?

00:22:26 --> 00:22:27

Then Imam Shafi says

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

yeah, you want us

00:22:31 --> 00:22:35

intertidal Cola, lurking around

00:22:36 --> 00:22:37

the rim.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:52

You may find false and you may do critique, you may critique the statement or the power or the words that have been uttered.

00:22:53 --> 00:22:57

But always respect the one who's uttering the statements.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:11

You may critique I disagree with the sentence of yours. But in your statement and the way you show your disagreement, you shall not show this respect for your disagreement of the statement.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:14

Then he says

00:23:15 --> 00:23:28

for inna are indeed Mahima attorney matinee a knuckle the aisle Murad la Marieb. Why because in reality, we want to uproot the disease,

00:23:29 --> 00:23:30

not the sick person.

00:23:32 --> 00:23:41

And the idea is not to get rid of the sick person, the idea is to get rid of the sickness within the sick person. So the purpose is to uproot the disease, not

00:23:42 --> 00:24:20

that the see the person who is sick. So this is a very famous code that is mentioned in OLFA that, you know, these, these golden rules that Imam Shafi laid out are predominantly very powerful for us. Every single one of them is so powerful, because many of us we were you would all agree. We don't have this in our societies. We don't have this within ourselves. We don't have this within our households, we don't have this within our jobs. We don't have this so many places. Right. And this is something that you know, may Allah grant us still feel that we're able to do that.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:47

The person's name was Eunice Salafi, he was Mohammed this he has mentioned lot of a hadith and stuff like that. Then another salami he mentions with us look, I love the essence if you want to know how do you build this affectionate bond amongst us as a love? Who will bow dunya it's that you hate dunya you don't love dunya?

00:24:48 --> 00:25:00

Well, rather than who you stay away from dunya and every single thing that attracts you to dunya but here let the to the old Maha Allah Fatah banal Ikhwan because

00:25:00 --> 00:25:21

90% of equity Rafat somewhere, even if they may look like it's a religious fit laugh, it is a fundamental dispute. Deep down Kahina Kbj. At the back somewhere, there's a connection to dunya someone is trying to win over someone over some space at some place.

00:25:22 --> 00:26:06

That's the reality. So the further you are from the connection from this dunya, and everything that attracts us to duniya them, and especially myself and every single one of us, the better and easier it is going to be to love for one another. Because we will not be seeking worldly gains we will not be seeking, oh ye if I say this? Because sometimes we calculate all of this no matter if I say this. No, no, he should call me first. I heard that, you know, salon and Falana is in the town. But he hasn't called me. Let me see her take down how many days he does not call me. What? Why? Because we're trying to win in duniya. Somehow, that in the balance, why not? If you hurt your brother is

00:26:06 --> 00:26:30

here in town column. What's a big deal. But it's that ego that kicks in and that ego is what is driven, driven. Or if you were to say what feeds the ego, it's the love of our dunya the love of dunya that's feeding our egos. Today most of the fights that you see anywhere that take place irrespective of the space and time

00:26:31 --> 00:26:33

90% of them will be driven by ego.

00:26:35 --> 00:26:43

And that ego is somehow going to be pegged to some form of dunya achievement some form of one up in dunya status somehow.

00:26:45 --> 00:26:50

And sadly, this is the case of all of us. By the hour the MMR D He says Al in son

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

al Insano Maqsood, Bill Asiya the essence of insaan is people are going to hurt you.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:08

Massoud have been namah. People are going to have jealousy for any bounty that Allah gives you.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:27

But either lamea con early FINMA, Leuven, tofu who ad has Cydia, if you are not somebody who's trying to mend relationships, people will hate you so much that they will take away everything through hazard that you have, they will not live your life.

00:27:28 --> 00:27:35

The only choice you have is to be the nice one. Because the minute you You, Allah has given you all of that and you become not nice.

00:27:37 --> 00:28:04

They will be like you'll be closer. Look at him. Look at the car, look at the house, look at this, look at children, wives, what school people will start talking about all of these things. The choice you have, is that you become as the Hadith we mentioned that Ali friend Matt LUFA you, you become lovable, and you love others. Right? I mentioned this last time too. And this is something that, you know, it was hard for me.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:07

You know, there are certain things in life you have learned.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:10

But you don't realize

00:28:12 --> 00:28:22

that that learning, it's easy. It's a nice knowledge, nice information was very hard to practice. Right. And one of my teachers he said, he said that.

00:28:23 --> 00:28:38

When I started this in 2014 15, back in the day, when I started getting full time active and stuff like that. And our he gave me an advice. He said look at your job, as a person who is calling people to the deen of Allah is to love everyone.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:41

Your job is you have to love Him.

00:28:43 --> 00:28:52

You cannot like you have, I'm like, what if it doesn't matter, you have to love everyone. But he said you your job is also to understand

00:28:54 --> 00:28:55

that not everyone is going to love you back.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:36

So it was easy to easy up until I came to Hamza, the first few months, it was very hard to practice that you are we all know what we went through hamdullah now we're in a very much stable position. But at that time, it was very hard to practice this that you know, you know, the individual that is standing in front of you is sending messages behind your back and you have the screenshots, you have the screen and you have and he's smiling at you. And you're like Subhanallah like do I tell this guy what he's been saying behind my back? Do I tell the screenshots he's the act of it was such a big test, right? And one of these days I think I came up and also said some stuff. You know, I also lost

00:29:36 --> 00:29:45

it that day. I was like like no, I am gonna take it on. Like there's no way government come out in the public and talk to me, right? But it's it's a learning experience and it was very hard.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:59

You have to love everyone, but you also have to understand, not everyone is going to love you back. Once you understand that. And the second thing once you understand the second thing OLFA becomes the second thing is

00:30:00 --> 00:30:07

You know I'll say it in order and then I'll say it in Arabic for you there's only one other brother here the Yemenis are a DCS anyways, so

00:30:09 --> 00:30:22

you drink you have zero Vianne which is almost stolen from biryani you have actually bad money which is also stolen from Masala Chai, like everything you guys eat is like VC but you call it Arab I don't know why

00:30:26 --> 00:30:29

so you're telling me the brianna is your invention? Yemenis invention?

00:30:30 --> 00:30:32

Other way around have you?

00:30:36 --> 00:30:55

Yeah, like a matte, like a matte like a matte lips or Oh, man. So I learned this the second thing that you know, one of my teachers said to me and I think this is something really important for us and all final and with this. He said just go jitna semana we're gonna put her in some jail.

00:30:57 --> 00:31:02

Like, if you want to explain something to someone else, Abraham you have him Allah do

00:31:04 --> 00:31:06

you cannot increase his understanding.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:20

It's naive of you to think that I have given him 100 Why is he only taking 20 Because that is all he can take. He will not take beyond 20 It is naive of you to think that he will take 50

00:31:22 --> 00:31:24

Just go into transformers no VALTRA he's a mega

00:31:25 --> 00:31:26

Did you get it? Right him?

00:31:28 --> 00:31:36

Kind of like this is too much. It's okay. Yeah, there's a prime example. This summer is watering some jagah right

00:31:37 --> 00:31:42

now every person has a limit. It's not your job to increase their limit.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:54

It's an individual job individuals perspective. We understand these two things Insha Allah, I think our life in general and everything will become

00:32:00 --> 00:32:15

will some Janina? Because some Arjuna Alta, would you say that you understand something? What camel Viviana say, right. I know this because sometimes we have conversation and I was I don't know you're gonna go PATA if you know it, then why is it not in your Amel?

00:32:17 --> 00:32:28

Right, because what has happened is since you opened this, this is a tangent but since you open it up, this is the first time in human history where information has become a source of distraction.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:40

So, everything that we tell somebody on everything that I would say or somebody else will say or any amount everybody knows, there is no shortage of information.

00:32:41 --> 00:32:48

Everybody knows there is nothing like on the Sunday heart era, there is nothing that was new.

00:32:49 --> 00:32:53

There was nothing that was new, every single Hadees that I said everybody knows it.

00:32:54 --> 00:33:09

But problem is that the information has become a source of distraction. And what has made it so difficult for us is what is worth while learning. Right? And they call this the dilemma of learning of this century.

00:33:10 --> 00:33:31

There's so much to learn what is in that particular amount of learning what is worthwhile learning that will actually change your impact make an impact in your life in this dunya and akhira that desertion to be able to decide to be able to have the ability to decide what is worthwhile learning that has become very difficult.

00:33:32 --> 00:34:02

In the olden days I'm sure in your age and stuff information be very few people have general knowledge. I was a minor in DC you pass Jota type somebody had general mashallah Yes, so my general knowledge today everything is like Siri, right? Hey Siri, right. If a thorough history tells us this series, like everything that any question you have, we have general knowledge, ask Ibrahim Mashallah. He made us when the Kahoot in that retreat, there was so many questions, we had no idea he had answers,

00:34:03 --> 00:34:10

right information, but out of all of that information, what is worthwhile that will actually make a difference in your life?

00:34:11 --> 00:34:14

Because then otherwise, inflammation is just a form of distraction.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:29

Jalla Gula only had I was stuck for LA Hollywood a communist, Muslim. InfraStop Pharaoh find one for Rahim Baraka, Hovik insha Allah may Allah Subhana Allah bless you all will be see you all or did you eat class tomorrow Baraka lucky ceremony

00:34:38 --> 00:34:43

and that one I would take them sometimes, like, what's his name? The Hamza live in Omar

00:34:45 --> 00:34:55

Abdullah Muhammad Ali Allah one. He took nine years. So 286 is divided by nine years. Nine times 305. Right.

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

Like let's say 10 1000s. That means
