Hola, humaine Kritika or Shoukry co host Neva tick?

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

A My bad?

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

We've received a question last time and I said we'll answer it in sha Allah at the beginning of this session. And it's a good question to answer because it kind of sheds even more light on what we mean by a bid and how people could disagree, identifying a bidder. And the question was from above or on the on the My mind left when he was asked about a Subha?

00:00:31--> 00:01:25

The what he called the rosary, right. And these are the beads that you would count the ticker with. And he was asking whether this is a bid out or is it not? So, the answer to this insha Allah and we could even you know, spend a lot of time trying to discuss this. But scholars disagree actually on whether this is a Buddha or not. And some scholars and I think maybe the basis of this is, some scholars are treating it in theory, and some scholars are treating it in practice based on what they have seen what it had become. And also between considering it means versus as a super hard turning from a means into counting the Dhikr into an object of worship itself. So let's take the point view

00:01:25--> 00:01:49

or probably the context of those who have said that it is a bit why would they say that it is a Buddha? So there's a book by Chef Ibaka Jose Rahim Allah is just about that. And he concludes ultimately that it's a bitter, but why do they see that? It's a bit out? Well, they tell you that, first of all, do you see it among other religious traditions or not? Other than Islam?

00:01:50--> 00:02:38

Right? Do you see it there? Do you see them practicing that using it as as he said, he called it rosary, right. But other traditions as well, they use it. So they said this is not exclusive to Islam. So here there is the precaution or the fear of that this could have been borrowed from non Muslims into a Muslim religious practice, or done in imitation of them. So if that happens, you got the issue of imitation that pops up, which makes a something invalid or haram because it's done an imitation, especially this is what a religious act. So that's the first thing. The other thing is that when you look even at some Muslim sects without necessarily naming them, because the issue is

00:02:38--> 00:02:52

not to name, but some Muslim sects and how they deal with the subhead, it becomes in itself religiously significance, it's not a means anymore. So for some, it becomes an indication of religious rank,

00:02:53--> 00:03:30

right? Like if you have a subhead that has 1000, and you hang it around your neck, or you're presented that and it's hung around your neck, you've reached a certain particular level of piety and spirituality, people will carry it also to indicate that they belong to a specific group, or a specific order or specific tradition. And some people also believe and this is not kind of theory or fairytales reality, they believe that once you know you engage in thicker in that particular thing, it becomes itself sacred.

00:03:31--> 00:04:10

Right? So there were people who will ask to engage in thicker, as it was reported to me, they'll take it, dip it in water, and that if you drink that water, it can cure this in that. Alright, so that itself becomes what? Religiously sacred and religiously significant. So when you look at the usage like that, and you consider is this a Buddha or not a scholar who's aware of all of this, they would say what? Oh, yeah, of course, it's a bit. Of course, it's a bit dry because of the way that it's used. Regardless of whether initially right, it'd be okay or not, the way that it's being used is significantly wrong.

00:04:11--> 00:05:00

So in Islam, you have to figure out something that we may or may not be aware of is that something could be had with the way that it's used makes it haram so fair should give me an example. That is hypothetical, which is take any color that is halal. Let's take for instance the color purple, are you allowed to buy something in purple and wear it? Yes. What if a people start adopting that color as their mark and that group is significantly deviant and practicing wrong, believes and wrong practices. So it becomes what Allah Allah him is significant, that this refers to them if you were it, then you will be identified as

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

is one of them? Would you still be allowed to wear the color purple? No, even you yourself, you have your own sense will say, I don't want to be linked to them. So you'll avoid it. But in fact, Islam supports that by saying that if something is done that will link you to a people and that had become there she are. Okay, that the thing that marks them, then you have to avoid it even though the thing itself is what? Hello. So the same thing. So those who said that the Subha or that rosary, like have a better name, right? That it is a bit, they looked at all of that. They also looked at the fact that they're Sahaba, like ignoramus Oh, Donald the Allahu Anhu. And when he saw people who are

00:05:46--> 00:06:24

counting, that they can write with some rocks that were in front of them, he denounced it. He denounced it, and he criticizes what they have done. And he said, either you have figured out something more more than the companions of the prophets of Allah, Allah or send them that is better than what they have figured out. Or this is misguidance meaning for Abner Omar, he was saying what? I know the Sahaba and he's one of them. They never did Dicker this way. So, either you got something better or worse. And which is it to him worse obviously, because you cannot come up with something religiously better than the Sahaba of Rasulullah Hassan Allah audio pseudonym, pseudonym is owed was

00:06:24--> 00:07:05

such a companion who was firm in the following of the Sahaba and not deviating and innovating after them. So that is the opinion. And I mean summarized of those who have said that this is a bitter now there are other scholars who have said, and they are good, you know, established scholars like Schiff had been bad and Schiff up north, they mean, who said it's not a big deal. Why? Because it's a means, right? Because you're simply using it to count. That's it. But they also say that if you want to use it, they put conditions. So I'm presenting both of these things to you so that if you ultimately decide, Okay, I'll go with Shaco and Basenji from there, what they mean or what they've

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

set observed the conditions that they've set. First of all, they said that remember that using your hands is better.

00:07:13--> 00:07:56

Using your hands is always better. So as long as you can use your hands you use your hands. So they say you can use the subpoena in places where using the hand is not possible. Right? If you're going to do a 500 or 1000 or whatever right and it's difficult to use the hand but for the Salah, after the Salah, use your hands, okay because it's easy. So use your hand for the regular dhikr that you're done after the Salah before you go to bed. you reserve the subhead for something else that is harder to count so they said that one second that it does not lead to the showing off. As long as you're holding your sub hat people will say what Masha Allah he's worth doing dhikr of Allah as

00:07:56--> 00:08:14

though Denise's No, it should be hidden movie Lisa Hera. So if you're going to use it is not going to be public. So he's not going to be in the masjid, you'll be at home. You're hiding it for two reasons, one because of RIA one another so that you don't resemble those who misuse it.

00:08:15--> 00:08:59

And ya know and also what so that it does not become a mark it does not become a shatter, it does not become significant. Okay, a practice. If you need it, you know that you use it as much as you need it. But in what the privacy of your own dwelling, but it doesn't become public. All right. So and also, you know, part of the problem also with the subnet sometimes is that people for some reason and Muslim Muslim countries, they identify this with what a Muslim should look like. Right? That is what is the outfit of a Muslim? The output of a Muslim in some Muslim countries you need to have, you know, the headcovering that's fine, but you need to have a cane and you need to have a

00:08:59--> 00:09:41

ring and you need to have a subhead. This is what makes you a good Muslim. Or Oh good. I mean the attire of a good Muslim. And these things are not what Sooners the ring, as we said before, is not a sunnah The cane is not a sunnah. And definitely this is not a sunnah. So if you take this, that it's a bit and you avoid it. That's it and you have predecessors of scholars who have said that if you want to follow the other scholars who have said no, just observe that your hand is always better so use it first. Second of all, keep the use of the sub hidden. Avoid Ria and don't start to believe that it is significant just because you're counting the Quran it it is not right doesn't become

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

special, just because you're doing the Korean it. Now, I hope insha Allah that clarifies at least that issue. But understand that scholars mean I mean here established scholars could sometimes disagree on what is a bit and what is not. And that is fine. Just like would they disagree?

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

and 50 matters in legal matters, they could sometimes disagree on some big amateurs. That is fine you look at the evidence and you try your best to decide and if you can let go of things that are disagreed on, let go things that disagreed on that is what the safest thing to do Allahu Alem.

00:10:19--> 00:10:32

A couple of things Inshallah, that we want to say about the bit and then we wrap up the other portion about disputations and arguments and we move also to talk about the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Are you wanted to?

00:10:39--> 00:11:04

So where does it Where did it originate from? We don't have evidence that it originated from Muslims, right? We don't have significant evidence because the evidence that we have Allahu Allah of Muslims doing this as early as the Sahaba, or the tabby ain is not authentic to them. So what we have that is authentic is enormous oats, seeing it and denouncing it. Where did they get that from? Lo Anna, we don't have really good evidence for that.

00:11:06--> 00:11:48

So a couple of things. Insha. Allah about the bit that I wanted to say is, wanted to clarify something that I've mentioned before about the difference between original and relative Bidda it'd be asleep here would be that it off here. I wanted to correct something that I said in terms of the examples. So I'll be asleep. We're kind of the original Buddha has no basis in the Quran or sunnah. Absolutely no basis. That's why it's completely a Buddha. So the example the correct example to give to that is for instance, like monasticism or robinia, has no basis in the Quran and the Sunnah, or fasting from speech. Right, meaning that you stop talking considering that a virtuous act that is

00:11:48--> 00:12:09

haram that's a complete bidder. The relative bidder is what a relative bidder is one that resembles a pious act, but not fully, because it's a bidder. So it has some basis but general basis in Islam, just like the example of that I gave before, which is what sub a person saying,

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

praying on the 15th of Shabbat.

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

So praying on special nights and days, has a basis in Islam. But specifying the 15th of Shaban becomes what groundless and it's a Buddha, right? Or a specific Salah in Rajab, there is no basis for it that is becomes bid Adolphe or an easy one that's practiced in a lot of maybe Muslim countries. Is that when you somebody dies or you hear the mention of somebody dies? Somebody says let's read what for him?

00:12:42--> 00:12:49

Yes, seen maybe but also easy shorter than that. Fatiha selfie, the HA and the new riddle fattier? Now,

00:12:51--> 00:13:19

someone will say if you tell them this is not authentic, and it's a bit, is it? What's wrong with it? I'm reading Quran and I'm giving it to him what's wrong with it? So that's always a response. What's wrong with it? It's good. Play. The thing here is where's your evidence for it? Well, you know, reading Quran is good. That's, that's the rationale. reading Quran is good. And some scholars have said that you can gift the Quran to somebody else. plus one plus one equals two. Right?

00:13:20--> 00:14:01

The rebuttal to This Is What did the Prophet Sollers had them do this, and he knows very well that reading the Quran is good. And that if it was gifting it to a dead person was the best thing you could do. He would have told you about it and done it. The Prophet how many people died while he was alive at a Salatu was Salam and they were killed? Did he raise his hand and read that fatty half with them? He say negative. The Sahaba? Did they do that? Do you say negative? So where did you come up with this? So you can object to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam by introducing something and saying, Well, it's good, or citing general evidence and saying that general evidence

00:14:01--> 00:14:17

supports me, you need for a specific act to have specific evidence, right? Otherwise, right, you'd be manipulating the Sharia. So you understand this. And if I say for instance, if I want to say and I legislate, and I say,

00:14:18--> 00:14:34

everybody here supposed to say when they wake up 1000 times as the federal law every day. You've told me what, who is your evidence for this? I say with kulula cathedra. Remember Allah often, they say, How did you move from this into 1000? As the federal law, how did he make that jump?

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

It's called Allah cathedra. Yes, but without specifying and obligating. So if you want to do 1000, everyday on your own, you do, but you make it common as if it's a sunnah. That's a problem. So you can move from the general to the specific without evidence, right? So that's clear, and shortly. Now, one of the things he said here

00:15:00--> 00:15:50

Are himolla Hamilton no humble, when he said first what are called Halsall. Marathi will do Lucy mouse hobby Hawa. So leaving disputations and sitting with the people of how our people have desires 100 hour a people have desires is a general designation of anyone who unfollows Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam and fairly follow their own desire. Right. And as some of the sellers have said, some of us have have said, Do not sit with the innovators or do not sit with the people of Iowa, because it sickens the heart, it makes your heart sick and diseased. And that is very insightful, very insightful. Because when you sit with someone long enough, and sometimes not even for that

00:15:50--> 00:16:16

long, and they have wrong beliefs and rock practices, that thing starts infecting you. Right? And what corrupts a person except his and her friends. Say, so you could be a person who's adamant against a particular practice until you sit with a person who does that. And you get so familiar with him and with that practice, and then you begin to say to yourself, What was so wrong with it?

00:16:17--> 00:16:36

And what is so wrong with him? So, your heart starts to change, when you sit with people who are in themselves corrupt because they will share that corruption with you. Whether it is in worldly matters, but definitely in religious matters as well. And Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran

00:16:37--> 00:17:07

what you thought eater Latina Yeah, hold on, if he is Tina for added on hedaya full of Hadith in it. It says when you see those who are indulging, falsely talking about our ayat, leave them until they talk about something else. What had necessarily come this another iohannes is Olalekan vikita B and it has a merit to Maya Tila, he, you look for OB her well, you still have the OB HA HA HA HA HA HA HA Have you had anything Gregory? Allah says and it has been revealed previously in the book, that if you hear

00:17:08--> 00:17:22

the eyes of Allah being denied and marked, do not sit with them until they start talking about something else. And Allah says that if you do not do this, then you are what? Like them?

00:17:23--> 00:17:30

Because that's approval. So hey, that's approval. Would you sit with someone who is insulting you?

00:17:32--> 00:17:55

Like sitting here and he's just attacking you and insulting you? You wouldn't? Would you sit with someone who's sitting there and insulting your mother? And you'd be laughing? That there is some idiots who do that, by the way, right? And they don't care. Okay, he insults his mother, he insults his mother back and they're still friends. But for a decent human being would you sit with a person who's doing who's doing that?

00:17:56--> 00:18:04

No, you wouldn't let a person who is attacking Allah as though did who's supposed to be more dear to you than your parents?

00:18:05--> 00:18:52

Or attacking Mohamed Salah do send them and you're laughing? It couldn't be. So if someone is disputing the Quran disputing the Sunnah, disputing the correct belief, you're supposed to either correct them. Or if you can't you leave them, but you'd never stay with them. And you never sit with such a person. Because that is the way will you become or you. They invite you to their disbelief or to their wrong ways. So there has to be a barrier, a filter that you put between yourself and those who have wronged beliefs, or whether they are non Muslims, or they are Muslims themselves. And don't be intrigued. And don't be so curious and say I want to hear I want to understand if you have some

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

of the self, right? Somebody would come and sit tell them.

00:18:57--> 00:19:17

Is this gonna talk to you? Can I discuss with you this? And so he takes his fingers and he puts them in his ears and he says no, I will not listen to it. He says just a sentence is not a sentence, not even half a sentence you either would leave or I will leave because they didn't want to give them an inch or a space

00:19:18--> 00:19:59

to present what they have. They were strong in their ima now weak by the way, they're strong in their Iman because you may think well, if a person is really strong, he wouldn't care. He would talk about anything with anyone. But they understand that the hearts are in the hands of Allah zodion and the you don't own your heart. And the understand that a lot of people the way that they started to lose their faith is by that by starting listening to others, and then debating them and opening space for them in their minds and in their heart until these doubts grew. Because when you hear something it doesn't leave you right? When you hear someone

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

you're doubting something, or introducing doubt about it, being skeptical about this and that it doesn't really leave you, it stays with you. And if you keep listening to it over and over and over, it may start making sense to you.

00:20:15--> 00:20:33

And this, by the way doesn't only happen in matters of the Earth, what happens in the matters of the dunya, as well. And sometimes I try to bring these examples so that you understand, actually, that it does actually happen. And it makes sense. So how many people for instance, a couple who could have a wonderful marriage,

00:20:35--> 00:21:11

and then the man starts listening to some of his friends? And they say, Oh, your wife did not does not do this for you, or does not do that for you. She's not really good. You might be aware of woman today, because woman did they do this and do that? So the man's attitude and perception and expectations, they start to do what? Change, not because of something that she did, but because of what doubts that they started to put in his head. And so the same thing happens with a woman, a woman who would be incredibly happy with her husband, and then the that other woman, and that other lady would tell her, Oh, your husband does not allow you to do this. And he does not give you this,

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

he must be a bad man. You be careful with this. You be careful with that. And the corrupted that relationship. Was there something wrong with it? No.

00:21:21--> 00:22:03

So you have to be really careful who you lend your ear to. That's what they're talking about. Typical judo, Sima home. And if Allah azza wa jal commands it in the Quran, there is no ifs and buts about it. If something is wrong, you avoid listening to it. And our challenge today is greater than the challenge that they had at the time where they wrote these things and talked about them. Because the ease of access, okay allows us to listen to everything that think of any wrong belief you can think of, and maybe you did not even think of you could access it online. And you can listen to someone calling you to follow it, or debating another whether about its merits. So if you follow all

00:22:03--> 00:22:07

of these clicks from one to the other, your heart is going to become sick.

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

And then ask yourself later on, how is it that a person lost his faith?

00:22:13--> 00:22:37

Okay, he used to pray he used to fast he used to do this and he used How did he lose his faith? Ask him and ask her what were you listening to? What did you allow to corrupt your mind and to corrupt your heart? And did you not have enough? You know, to do so that you needed to find other things to distract yourself with? Like, you know,

00:22:38--> 00:23:13

another significant encounter with Ahmed Mohamed Rahim Allah Allah just to tell you about how we humans leave what is important to what is not somebody came to ask him, he says can I make well do it with rosewater? So Mohammed answered How about with water that hadn't been cooked? You know, some lentils you cook water with them? Can I make will do with this can I make will do with that? Can I make a deal with this? And how I'm gonna handle rahamallah is answering that. Then when a person you know finished his questions, he stood up and he wanted to leave the Masjid. He said, What do you say when you want to leave the Masjid? He says, I don't know. Is that what you want to see when you will

00:23:13--> 00:23:16

come into the midst of he says I do not know. He says go on during that.

00:23:18--> 00:23:31

And what is he telling you is that the things that you're asking about are not necessary and are not significant? And are practical, meaning you just you simply curious, you want to know but the things that you need to know you have not learned yet.

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

So learn what you need to know because if you just focus on that you won't have time to worry about other things.

00:23:39--> 00:24:27

So, you know, be curious in the right way. Yeah, occupy this I mean, occupy yourself fill your time with trying to understand the book of Allah, the Sunnah, study it but these other distractions leave them at least until you are ready, knowledge wise and Dukla wise to handle these things. But don't jump into debates and arguments and controversies and this person is attacking that person and you want to understand everything that is about it. Which does not help your heart and does not help you EMA. So when he says here Rahima hola what Terkel hosel. Murthy will do lucema alila Hawa is abandoning debates and sitting with the people of desire. One of the early reasons why some Muslims

00:24:27--> 00:24:49

deviated is because they were debating in the beginning. They're debating Christians and they're debating Jews, and they're debating Zoroastrians, and these Christians and Jews and Zoroastrians weren't just simply religious. There were philosophers as well. They're still talking about Kubla and Kadar destiny and the words of Allah azza wa jal, and this and that. So these Muslims in the course of these debates, they changed.

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

Right? In the course of these debates, you come in thinking that I'll change them, but you keep talking to them until you change and you have begun to have

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

The more at the Zilla and the philosophers and this is because of that type of contact. If you're strong enough in your Islam and in Eman you will present without the need to debate. So that's the thing I also want to tell you today in sha Allah and advise you is that whenever you see debates online, don't just rush in and listen. Because as you're also listening to a Muslim, presenting his side, you're also listening to the other person presenting their side. Whether it's between a Muslim or a non Muslim, or a person who's follows the Sunnah and someone who's not you presenting also, or listening to the other side as well. And ask yourself, do you need this at this time? And can you

00:25:41--> 00:26:26

handle it at this time? And should you first increase your knowledge? And then enter that field? If you need to? Now the debater, the one who's you know, going into these debates, he may have an excuse for having that debate. Because they wanted to repel an evil prove, you know, the ignorance of that person lack of information, they may have an excuse for doing it, or maybe not, I do not know. But for you, the one who's receiving all of this, it doesn't mean that whenever you see it, you click on it. So be discriminate, as you consume, what only will help you physically consume only what will help you religiously and spiritually, and stay away from the rest because could actually

00:26:26--> 00:26:34

physically spiritually make you ill. And diseased. Right. So telco judo, Si, Ma, Adela, Hawaii.

00:26:36--> 00:27:25

And even you know, there's an incident where somebody was asking in the himolla, he says, I want I want to debate so and so. And I will run a present all the evidence in a book and write it. And, you know, record that debate and record that, those arguments, and he had a himolla He said, this was not the habit of our self. That is that they would engage in a debate and would record it and would present the argument of the other side. Right, but rather, they will present Islam. So present Islam, present the right path, and see if they want to follow it or not. You could argue with them in a sense if they want the truth. But if you find out that they are obstinate, and arrogant, what's

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

the use of that debate?

00:27:28--> 00:28:10

And that's why when he says he had what are called Mi ra II will GDL you will host format if it Dean abandoning argumentation, disputation in religion, by the way, Mira jadad and hustle mad they're synonyms. Because a brother was asking over there about the translation of one of them as a discussion. The discussion translating it as a discussion is a soft translation. We're not really talking about a simple discussion that you're having with your friend or family member, Mira Angelin hustle mat is an argument and a dispute, religiously, religiously, and there's a hadith I don't remember if I've mentioned it or not what he said Allah audios in them he said in Morocco filled

00:28:10--> 00:29:00

Quranic Oof. disputing the Quran is disbelief, meaning that when a person receives the Quran, and they start to have Mira in it, right dispute, an argue to reject it, or inject doubt in it. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that type of Mira disputation is disbelief. So because your task when you receive the Quran is what to accept? Not how and why not to reject it, right. But to accept even if you do not, at that moment, understand it and you will see that Muhammad Muhammad will tell you that that's the case. Even if at that time you do not understand it, how to submit an hour Altana or franja Kalapana Aiken mercy that's the last areas of Surah Al Baqarah. Into Matthew and fusi. Come

00:29:00--> 00:29:09

out to who you are, has it come? That is if you whether you reveal or you hide what you have in yourselves, Allah will hold you responsible for it

00:29:10--> 00:29:49

for you, when the Sahaba heard that, what did they do? They came to the prophets of Allah audio send them and they said oh prophets of Allah, how many they couldn't? Like how Allah will hold us responsible for things whether we keep them inside or reveal them. If we reveal them. We know that we should be responsible for them. But even if we keep it on the inside, we're still responsible for it. And the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam told them what do you want to pee like the People of the Book who say we hear on we disobey poderosa No. Altana say we hear and we obey Allah Flm Miranda to be her Elsener to homie says when they submitted to it internally and externally and he

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

said, Yes, we hear and we obey Allah as though to reveal the let's is of Surah Al Baqarah. That says what? That Allah forgives that you can live alone EFSA

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

Allah, Allah will not hold you responsible for what more than what you can bear meaning things that are on the inside that you keep on the inside. Allah azza wa jal does not hold you responsible for and there's more that we can say about those is too in terms of explanation. But here because they submitted to it Allah brought them ease and that is what's supposed to happen and that by the way happens till today you submit to an IRA or to Hadith you find that Allah gives you ease or my ethical the higher JAL Lahoma number you use, alright? And if you object to it, and fight with it, you find yourself in greater hardship with Allah azza wa jal and with Allah's revelation. So here

00:30:43--> 00:30:51

when he says, leaving disputation, and argumentation and debates in religion, he means because this is not the means to finding the truth.

00:30:52--> 00:30:57

The truth is revealed from Allah azza wa jal, and perhaps a

00:30:58--> 00:31:15

non Muslim when they hear this or a Muslim who has been influenced by the ideas of non Muslims. They hear this they say, oh, there are no, there's no debate in Islam, there is no open exchange of ideas. How could you find what is right and what is wrong? Is seems to be so closed and so stifling.

00:31:17--> 00:31:28

And to that we say, what you're talking about is very different than what we're talking about. It's not that there is no room for questions in Islam. If you have a question, could you add to Could you ask,

00:31:29--> 00:32:09

obviously, if you have a question today, and you need an answer, you can ask, and you can ask one and five and 10 and 100 questions, as long as your intent is what to learn, not to debate and disprove, and glorify yourself. A debate does that exactly. Which is your aim is to what? When, not to find the truth, but to win and defeat your opponent. And to glorify yourself, you already believe what you want to believe. And you're now willing to listen to the other side. So both of you are fighting, just like a boxing match. And boxing, by the way, is that Hello?

00:32:10--> 00:32:30

No, it's not really right. So like a boxing match. Your aim is to what defeat the other not to learn anything from them. That is the difference between Mira and G doll and asking questions and receiving answers. So it's not a way of finding the truth. Even I submit to you, even in worldly matters, debates are not useful,

00:32:31--> 00:32:45

even inwardly matters. So think. And if I'm wrong, let me know inshallah think about political debates, because that's the most common form of debates that we have today. Do you think that debates political debates are very useful?

00:32:46--> 00:33:00

I submit that they are not very useful. And why is it because both those political opponents are not coming to listen to each other, they're coming to what defeat the other and win you over. And in doing that, they get coached.

00:33:01--> 00:33:13

Right? And they have talking points, it doesn't matter what the other person has said, you deflect, and you talk about your talking points. And you win a debate, not because you carry the truth with you.

00:33:14--> 00:33:30

But you're able to impress, you're charismatic, and you're persuasive. So you could be a carrier of falsehood. And you win a debate. The same thing right? In Islam, you may not be able to express your ideas, right.

00:33:32--> 00:33:37

And you could lose a debate not because what you carry is wrong, but you're simply not a good debater.

00:33:39--> 00:33:44

And that I have evidence for that right? Which is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith

00:33:46--> 00:34:26

he said in the conduct of Simona la he says, You come to me with your dispute disputes, right? You're fighting with someone over inheritance a piece of land, it's a trade surplus you come to me with your disputes. Well, I had a company Hakuna al Hanabi who Jetty him in bought for Aqua Lila. Is is perhaps some of you are more eloquent and persuasive when they present their case than others. So I rule in your favor. For you my mother in polite Hula, hula be che inlays Hello. Oh, Kumbhakarna belay. sallahu. Fine. Now according to the hobo cut out in Montana. It says so if I rule in your favor, and it is not yours, I'm giving you a piece of hellfire.

00:34:27--> 00:35:00

So what is the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam here is saying, and this is really important, because it's not only significant for him at a salatu salam, but for every judge that comes after. We're just saying what it says you come to me and you argue your case is someone you are eloquent. Some of you are not some of you know how to present their evidence and some of you are not as a Prophet of Allah, I do not know the unseen, right? unless Allah tells me so I judge based on what what I hear. So if the prophet of Allah Allah is salatu salam, the person who is the smartest and with the greatest

00:35:00--> 00:35:44

stucco and sense of, you know, halal and haram and right and wrong. If he cannot detect that somebody could be lying, could we know? But what is he tell them Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He says that if my judgment is wrong, right, Allah forgives but if my judgment is wrong, and what I've given you is haram, it remains haram, you're taking a piece of hellfire. So here the prophets of Allah audio system is telling you that somebody could be so persuasive, that his argument could seem stronger. So that's why you don't get whatever you want from debates. He says, If you want to discuss if you want to talk, go ahead. But we have a reference. We have a reference and our

00:35:44--> 00:35:59

reference is the book of Allah. And the Sunnah of his prophets of Allah audio was in them. And there are things that are not up for debate, even as a secular person who does not believe in anything, are you willing to debate every single thing?

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

Or do you have put limits?

00:36:02--> 00:36:08

There always has to be limits? Like, are you willing to debate cannibalism to discover whether we should eat people or not?

00:36:09--> 00:36:53

Right? You're gonna say, No, this is where we draw a line, here. And here, and here. This is not up for debate. And by the way, I don't think that there is a person who is living today who does not have these limits. There always will say, you can't talk about this. And in fact, some of them will aim to shut you up. And have you not speak about these things because they cannot be touched sacred. By them. Don't we have our sacred? And I'm not saying this in order to convince you know, someone who does not believe in anything I'm doing this to in order to convince you so that you understand that Islam or religion is not a rational, okay? That there is reason that stands behind all of this,

00:36:53--> 00:37:13

and to be confident enough to say, we have a sacred and you stick to that sacred. Right. And as we say, we can't talk about these things. Others are saying exactly the same things about their sacred, but their sacred is worldly. Our sacred is Allah azza wa jal, and whatever he loves, or what he hates subhanho wa Taala

00:37:15--> 00:37:15


00:37:16--> 00:38:01

now we'll move on in sha Allah and he says, was sunnah to and that we'll be talking about insha Allah next was sunnah to indena Third Rasul Allah He Salam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a sunnah for us are the traditions of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says was sunnah to to festival Quran as sunnah explains the Quran? Well he had Allah it will Quran it is what the Quran points to or it is the meaning or the clarification of the Quran meaning the Sunnah, clarifies it and explains what it is. Here you find Mr. Muhammad Rahim Allah moving from that definition of sunnah from sunnah being Arpita or the general path of sound knowledge and practice into sunnah

00:38:01--> 00:38:24

being what we inherited from the Rasul Allah is Allah Allah audios and so in this specific sentence, that's what sunnah means. Because he said sunnah explains the Quran. So that means that sunnah, meaning what comes from the Prophet, his Hadith explains the Quran. So I thought Rasulillah what we inherit from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam all of it is Sunnah, whether it is what he said,

00:38:25--> 00:38:44

or what he did, or what he approved. Okay, so how fair that prayer. So if he approves of something that's as soon as well, if he says something that is sunnah as well, if he does something that is sunnah as well, and there's more than we can set about it. But what is important is to know that

00:38:45--> 00:39:11

the traditions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are needed to understand the Quran, and that you cannot understand the Quran or have Islam without the Sunnah of Rasulullah hey, Sal, Allahu Allah, you adios Salam and we need to establish this. Why? Because we have people today although they are not significant in numbers but who say and they have their presence

00:39:12--> 00:39:31

online that they say that we only follow the Quran and only one follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam big and they have the reasons they're saying the Sunnah has not been written down. The Sunnah is not reliable, this and this and we're only supposed to follow the Quran.

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

Right? And that is in itself a Buddha, right? That is itself a Buddha. Because it is Willow Adam, unknown in the history of Islam, that a group would emerge and say nothing wholesale to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was in some of the early sects. Okay, like the Hawaii bridge and the mortar Zilla, they would limit the intake of the Sunnah. Well because they say why we don't trust all of the Sahaba some only will

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

to take from some of them, the sooner they contradict the Quran, so we're not going to take this, we're not going to take that. Or this sooner contradicts the mind, it's not rational. So we will not take this and we will not take that. So they went about in me they want about it in a roundabout way in an indirect way to say, we don't want the Senate but they have this and this and those reasons, my no one to come and say, none whatsoever, and only the Quran, it will should be followed. So here we want to understand an established insha Allah for our sake, but also for the sake of if someone knows somebody who had fallen victim to that belief, to tell them why they're on the wrong path.

00:40:43--> 00:40:44

The Quran itself

00:40:46--> 00:41:11

commands the following of Muhammad Sallallahu ADUs. Right. So when Allah azza wa jal says well to Allah azza wa jal Rasool rasuna. What will it mean? Obey Allah and obey the messenger and obey people of authority among you, the scholars when they said, why was it or what is the significance of repeating and obey the second, but not in the third?

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

They say because when it comes to the people of authority, their

00:41:17--> 00:41:37

power or obedience to them is dependent on their agreement with what the Quran and Sunnah Allah Rasool. So when I pray, a person of authority says something you take and you say, does it agree with what Allah said? And when the Prophet said If yes, you follow it, if it contradicts it, what do you do?

00:41:39--> 00:41:55

Ignore it. If they tell you drink alcohol do you do or because I have to listen to them? If see Italy arriba is halal, does it become halal? No, because it contradicts what Allah said and what the Prophet have said. Okay. So their obedience is derivative,

00:41:56--> 00:42:12

contingent on the Quran and Sunnah. But when Allah says, well, I'll take it over assume that when you hear the Prophet sallallahu wasallam saying something, do you have to present it to the Quran and say whether it agrees with the Quran or not? No, the Rizal is to be obeyed independently.

00:42:13--> 00:42:44

Right? So I'll say Oh, Quran, Allah, Allah, meaning listen to Allah as it's found in the Quran, and listen to the Prophet. You're not going to say I'll pause until I see if it agrees with the Quran or not. He's to be listened to independently, and he salatu salam. So that's one evidence for it. Allah azza wa jal also says well, and then Na Na can Decra li to be in Alina see Manu Zilla era him. It says We have revealed a vicar to us so that you would explain to people what had been revealed to them.

00:42:45--> 00:43:11

So we asked a person who was saying or doesn't want to follow any of the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, we say okay, if you consider this ayah Allah is asking the prophet to do what he is charging him with what a task. What is this task lead to beginner so that you would explain? So we say here's the Quran that we're given, where is the explanation of the prophets Allah is

00:43:13--> 00:43:31

because he was asked to explain and in the Quran, you will find that there are some areas that need explanation because Allah as the dude will say, I mean, who is gamma? Who no more kita whoa, hold on water Shabbiha there are some ideas that are very clear. And there are some is that what have more than one meaning in it.

00:43:32--> 00:44:17

So there is a sense of confusion that could arise if someone does not understand the difference between the clear is and what is not how you reconcile them. And we have evidence of the Sunnah that we can say, where the prophets Allah audios Allah would come and explain what they are debayan Hola, como hiatal abdominal heighted S word Meenal. Fetch. So when the I O that was revealed until you see the clear the white line from the black line, right. And that is when you start fasting, some of the Sahaba took that literally to mean what a thread that they they kept a thread with them white and black, when they could see the difference between them. That's when they start their fasting. And

00:44:17--> 00:44:59

the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam you know said what is Nagasaka Ilari meaning like, then your pillow is really big. If what you think in because that thread is the thread of dawn. So if your pillow is covering the thread of dawn that is a really big fillo is stuck in several audios and and then what is not the thread that you have in your hands. It's what done the breaking of dawn, so confusion could arise. So if the prophets and all he was sent them was tasked with offering this explanation, we say where is this explanation that Allah says you have to do? Okay? What Allah azza wa jal also says OMA and send an illegal Kitab elderly to buy in at the homeowner the fella foofy we

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

did not reveal

00:45:00--> 00:45:28

A book to you except for you to explain to them the things they disagree on. So it means that people disagree. The people of the book, Muslims, they disagree and the prophets role is to do what began. There's this beyond explanation, though the whole manner, what is the meaning of this? The where is this Bian of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? If you exclude all the Sunnah, you know how much you're losing?

00:45:29--> 00:45:33

Okay, and a third evidence insha Allah for it.

00:45:34--> 00:45:40

And then I will want to talk about the desirability of following the sun of the province or isn't a third evidence

00:45:41--> 00:45:46

and this inshallah considered also to be one of the strongest so inshallah pay attention to it.

00:45:47--> 00:45:54

So you know, that the Muslims, when they were in Mecca, where did they face when they prayed

00:45:55--> 00:46:34

beta bait and McCullough's they face Jerusalem right? Good, wonderful. And when they went to Medina that got changed. So you find it in Surah Al Baqarah, where Allah azza wa jal says Karnataka, Luba, Ouachita, his fellow Napoleon niblet, and tada we see you looking at the sky and so will give you a Qibla that you will be happy with. And you understand that wouldn't this happen it made a splash, say Oh, to sofa Amina Nassima, Wanda home amicability. haemolytica, Allah, among the people, the foolish will say what turned them away from the Qibla that they were on. So they were facing Jerusalem, now they're facing Mecca, and some people were saying or what turned them away from that

00:46:35--> 00:46:45

Qibla that they used to worship towards, right? So the question that you ask yourself is, where in the Quran? Do you find a command to face Jerusalem?

00:46:48--> 00:46:59

There is none. Read the Quran if you want. Where in the Quran? Is there a command to face Jerusalem? There's nothing in the Quran that says this says In fact is established by the Sunnah.

00:47:00--> 00:47:44

And that's very clear, by the way. All right, so here, the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam himself, right? Tells the Muslims to face in their Salah Jerusalem and salah is the most important physical act that you could do. Meaning if you intentionally face something else, your Salah is invalid. So you're facing Jerusalem, and that significant act of worship was not established by the Quran but by the Sunnah. So it means that the prophets, Allah Salam had that power, right? So a person could argue back and said, Well, I mean, we assume that we say, Listen, it is either that Allah revealed that to the prophet, and the Prophet did it. And that is the likely scenario, or the prophets, Allah

00:47:44--> 00:48:27

Salam decided on his own to do it. Right. But when you look at Surah Al Baqarah. Did the Prophet change to Mecca on his own? Or was he waiting for direction? Waiting for a direction? So he's waiting, he wants what Mecca and he's waiting, and he's looking and he's making dua, and he's wishing, and this has fallen, unwieldy, and NACA, we will make you face Atripla that you like, his wasn't up to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So the second command was what Revelation? What was the first command? Revelation as well. So it's sunnah. So that's why the Prophet later on Do you have a question? Insha Allah after, I'll give you a sense of time for it. So that's why the prophets of

00:48:27--> 00:49:08

Allah Azza wa sallam he says Allah in ni o Tito Khurana or Mithila Houma. I was given the Quran and something like it with it. Because he sets a lot he said them in a hadith so Subhanallah prophesized and predicted this, that you should call Julian Shaban on an ICA day is about to be that there will be a full man sitting reclining on his bed or sofa he will say whatever we find in the book of Allah that we take when he hears the Sunnah of the Prophet says we don't need that will only take what we find in the book of Allah. Allah in new Tito Khurana with Lahoma I was given the Quran and something similar or something like it with it. And another narration of it says and our inner Muhammad Rasool

00:49:08--> 00:49:14

Allah He came a haram Allah with the prophets of Allah had forbade and made Haram is like what Allah had made haram and forbade.

00:49:15--> 00:49:34

So here a person has to kind of either accept this and say, the prophet had that power to legislate, and the Muslims had to follow or he has to contradict himself because historically this is established. And if the prophet could do this, okay, then Muslims had to follow him in other things as well.

00:49:35--> 00:49:54

And here I want to jump here into the question of the desirability of following Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Still speaking to the same group of people who don't follow the Sunnah, and see how we as human beings are contradictory in our stance. So you

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

think about great human beings forget about the

00:50:00--> 00:50:22

prophets of Allah right now great human beings, you find that people today who are successful and established and what have you, professionally, this person is the head of a company, this person, you know, wrote great books this and that people's interest in them doesn't stop at the fact of the specific accomplishments. But they also want to know more about them. So a person comes up, for instance, and he says,

00:50:25--> 00:51:12

I sleep X number of hours a day I eat this particular food, I exercise, you'll find people attracted to these choices of theirs. And why is that? Big for two reasons, Allah Allah maybe even more, first of all, is because they think that their excellence is in part because of these choices as well. And because they have wisdom in whatever professional field they have chosen, that wisdom also translates into wisdom and other choices as well. So if you know that somebody is really successful, and really smart, and he tells you I follow this particular diet, what is your indication? Or, you know, hunch is that that could help. Or I'm very interested in knowing how he sleeps, because that

00:51:12--> 00:51:48

sleep pattern that he has, could motivate and jumpstart his brain, give him a healthy body, the food that he eats could contribute to the way that he thinks. So we're interested not only in those accomplishments, one, two, and three, but in the entire person, because as we said, excellence begets excellence. Right? And it could contribute to it. So people write biographies, or and they interview these people, and we're interested in everything that they're doing. Right? They think about a prophet of Allah Zoetry. And a prophet of Allah is

00:51:49--> 00:52:05

the closest to Allah as as, as a group, the closest to Allah. The best in a batter, the best in character, the best in dealing with people would you not be interested in how they live and how they sleep and what they eat and how they deal with people?

00:52:07--> 00:52:50

Isn't it isn't just natural. And this person speaks to Allah as Zoda, won't you if he's alive, just follow him just to see how good is he to his neighbors, how he treats his wife. See, it'd be interested in all of this. So with Mohamed Salah Allahu Allahu Allah, he was salam. Someone that you know, who is the best of the best? Warren, you'll be interested just to actually find out how he slept. On the right on the left, how many hours what did he wake up? What did he eat? How did he deal with his kids? Because all of that is a reflection of the love that Allah had for him and the excellence that he was as a worship of Allah as origin. Don't you me? Don't you want to imitate him?

00:52:50--> 00:53:26

Even if nobody tells you? Is it his guidance? The best guidance, even if no one compels you, you say, I think he makes the best choices. So Allah azza wa jal says Laqad cannula configure rasool Allah He was one Hasina. You have in the Messenger of Allah Allah is Salatu was Salam, the best example. So a person distances himself from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he loses all of this. Now we ask you who's your example now? If you want to eat, you want to drink you want to deal with your friends and family? Where is your example?

00:53:27--> 00:53:31

How do you translate the Quran into reality?

00:53:32--> 00:54:02

And that's why we needed Muhammad sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Otherwise Allah could have just given you the Quran. But why do you need the Quran? And why do you need the prophets of Allah audios and I can give you a list of instructions for how you apply that. I can tell you be patient, but show me patience in dealing with your spouse and children, parents and neighbors. You need to see somebody practicing this. Why do you get job training before you start a job rather than just giving you a list?

00:54:03--> 00:54:49

Because you need to see how things are supposed to be done. And it is actually many times far more effective than the words themselves. Right? Be patient. Have you ever heard that so many times, but while driving you see somebody being patient that stays with you, because you need to see how religion is lifted not only preached but lift. And so Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he took the Quran, and he practiced it in the Sunnah it was important for the Sahaba around him to see all of this and to absorb it and for that to get absorbed by the next generation. That's what made the impact not simply a book that drops and people are told follow. You need people to live that

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

book. So the desirability of following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is because his choices and how he prays and how he eats and how he wants

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

acts right? All of that is superior. And we need to adopt all of it. And you deprive yourself of a significant portion of guidance when you say, I'll follow none of that, in addition to the fact of how are you going to pray?

00:55:15--> 00:55:40

If there is no sunnah, how are you going to give his occur? How you gonna sort of how is hedge? Right? How is in fact you know, so there are some commands in the Quran you wouldn't know how to apply them, as they've said with was Sadek was Saudi facto idea Houma is is the, the fief, male and female cut their hands, play if the Quran does not determine an amount.

00:55:41--> 00:55:49

So a person could steal a cent, or $10,000. Both of them are theft. You cut both.

00:55:50--> 00:56:05

The sender doesn't say that the sender puts a limit they have and where do you cut from? Do you cut from the wrist, the elbow or from the shoulder? And some of the early sex like the choleric, who do not want to follow the Sunnah they would cut from the shoulder

00:56:06--> 00:56:10

because they've been on when I gotta take the Sunnah this is all as a hand so they got the whole thing.

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

So the sun that comes and says no,

00:56:14--> 00:56:21

ever conditions are met you cut from the rest rest. So without the Sunnah, you're going to lose all of this.

00:56:22--> 00:56:34

Right now, they will say also will add to it while the sun is not reliable. It was recorded 200 years after Muhammad sal Allahu Allahu Allah wa salam, unlike the Quran.

00:56:35--> 00:57:17

And to that we say that is inaccurate. It was not recorded 100 years or 200 years after the prophets of Allah it was. It was recorded at the time when he was alive and he is Salatu was Salam, but not in the same way that the Quran was recorded. The prophets Allah who sent them allowed everybody to write the Quran, and he had designated official scribes. So for the Quran, anybody could write it down. So keep that in mind, Inshallah, for the Quran, anybody can write it with me. And he had specific scribes that when it comes down him and him and him, they would write it down. So that's what the Quran, the Sunnah. He allowed people to write, they say in the beginning, there's some

00:57:17--> 00:57:20

Hadith that said, don't write anything except the Quran.

00:57:22--> 00:58:05

The General Command to people in the beginning don't write anything except the Quran. Why is that? So they don't mix. They don't mix the Quran with the words of Muhammad salatu salam. But then later on, he gave that permission. And we have evidence for that. So Abdullayev number of new laws are the Allahu anha. He said, I used to write, that's what it says. I used to write everything that the prophets always send them would say, until Porsche came to me and they said what he said Mohamed Salatu was Salam sometimes gets angry, and he's a human being. So he may say things that he does not mean. So he wants to the prophets of Allah to sell them and he says, oh, prophets of Allah, I'm

00:58:05--> 00:58:18

writing everything you say. And they told me to stop because of this, he says, No, continue writing. Because indeed, whatever I say, is the truth. Whatever I say, is the truth. That's an example of

00:58:20--> 00:59:01

something that's being written down at the time of Muhammad SAW Allah Allah He was, and he allowed other Sahaba to write things down. Later on also ignore Abbas and others of the younger Sahaba they would report that they have camel loads of the Hadith of the prophets of Allah audio isn't written down. Now that did not survive in its original form for us to see. But it survived in terms of what that God observed, absorbed into the next generation who would write down and then the next generation who would write it down until it comes into the books that we have today. So the official, okay, so that also you would have a date, the official

00:59:02--> 00:59:29

documentation of the Prophet the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam began at the year 100, with Omar Abdul Aziz. When he asked zody Rahim Allah to start writing it down, collect the Hadith of the Prophet and start writing it down. But that's not when it started. That's the official one. Right? Before that, it was an individual effort. That's the official one, until it gets all absorbed into a more thought. And then

00:59:31--> 00:59:54

Body Party and the Muslim, Muslim Muhammad before that, and et cetera, et cetera. And from that onward, we receive all of this through generational consensus. Yanni between us and Buhari, we have generational consensus. What does that mean? That from the terminal Buhari Rahima Hola. This entire generation that lived at his time accepted it

00:59:55--> 00:59:59

to follow and so the next generation gives that to you. And so to you

01:00:00--> 01:00:42

And so to you until the last generation of your fathers and grandfathers who gave that to you, and you will take that and you will give it to your children. That's a generational passing of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and before that, okay, before that, they, some will say, the Sahaba narrated this and narrated that could have been a mistake could have been, this could have been that they could have lost it. It is, first of all, if you believe that Allah azza wa jal is going to preserve the Quran, we say, does he preserved the Quran only in letter or in letter and meaning as well,

01:00:44--> 01:01:25

has to be both right letter and meaning, if we establish that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam explained the Quran for you, that explanation for the Quran to be preserved needs to be preserved as well. So as an item of belief, you have to also believe that that is going to be preserved as well. And the Sahaba of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, when they would hear something from him how to pray how to fast a meaning of an idea, they will just simply let go of that or they will memorize it, they will teach it and they will preserve it. That's what they will do. And so that passed two passes to the second generation and passes to the second generation, and they are most eager to

01:01:25--> 01:02:07

preserve all of that. How could a person say none of the Sunnah is reliable. And yet at the same time, code people before Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of Roman philosophers and historians or Greek philosophers and historians how he could quote someone before Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and feel comfortable saying they said these things, but when it comes to Muhammad, none of that is reliable. And he had more followers, and more of a reason to keep his words than Socrates and Plato and Aristotle, and other philosophers. They're just individuals. Yeah, they had students, but more than 100,000 around Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam at the large

01:02:07--> 01:02:23

plus pilgrimage, that we have more than that, believing that everything that he says is the word of Allah azza wa jal meaning inspired by Allah. And they fail to document this so that none of it is reliable, but you could code Shakespeare and you're okay with that. Okay.

01:02:24--> 01:02:33

So you have to be consistent, that this is from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then you need all of these things. So

01:02:34--> 01:03:21

that's what he says here was sunnah to fasudil Khurana Wahidullah, illud Quran that you need the sunnah to understand the Quran, and your understanding of the Quran will be incomplete without the Sunnah. Right? You will not fully comprehend it. You will not be able to worship Allah as Odin as we said, Your Worship will be flawed and incomplete. Unless you know how Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam translated meaning implemented, what Salah is implemented, what fasting is implemented what Hajj is, and it's not possible for you to think that Muslims simply invented the way that we pray today. We just came up with it in that specific order. And we did not get that from Rasul Allah is

01:03:21--> 01:04:06

Allah Allah to send them right? Or how we fast or how we do Hajj and the details of Islam they all go back to Rasul Allah so Allah Allah He was. So if Allah is preserving this religion it means it's he's preserving the Quran and with the Prophets Allah Allah it was alum said now quickly in sha Allah we will touch on this last part but we will come back to it in sha Allah later to next week. He says what he says his sunnah to the US there is no analogy when it comes to the Sunnah he here reverts back Rahim Allah Allah to the meaning of the Sunnah incense of our tea then a bad trying meaning to establish that with analogy, there is the US in the law. But then that's not what he's

01:04:06--> 01:04:51

talking about. He says in sunnah there's no PS, you're not going to establish something in terms of what you believe or in terms of a badda or the commands of Allah by analogy, meaning since Allah said this, this also should be a bother this this since this is haram, this also should be haram right now in terms of law, but legislation, legislation from your own and he says well, total Ebola hell and third, and you don't seek to extend it through similarities or dissimilarities. An example of that that will illustrate insha Allah is that a warrior or the Allahu Anhu once was telling ignore Abbas what are the Allahu Anhu is teaching and is narrating to ignore Abbas and he said

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

that there should be will do from me Maria Latina that from what fire touches the food, the TA

01:05:00--> 01:05:41

that the fire cooks there should be able to cook from it the beginning of Islam that was the case that got cancelled later. But if you were to cook food and the fire touches that meat let's say Would you eat then you'd have to make all the way again. So if not a best of the Allahu Anhu said should I then make will do with the water that had been heated? Should I make will do it with water that have been touched by fire I heated. So Abu Huraira said he says, if I give you a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam don't extend it by similarities, meaning stop where it stops. Don't say this looks like that. So I'll extend it and ignore Abbas Of course, while the Allahu Anhu

01:05:41--> 01:06:25

is a brilliant mind, right? So he's likely noting similarities. But how here is being taught by a Bouverie Radi Allahu Anhu which is what when it comes to the Sunnah Don't use me your mind like that. Don't extend it by saying this this looks like that this also should be haram or dislike it says no. If the Prophet did not say that stop where he stopped. So go where he goes, Stop where he stopped. He says hola to the Rabu lol and third wala to throw COVID Oh Cody what Allah Hawa you cannot reach what Allah wants with your mind or with your desire. In the Mojave water cooling tower it's simply following and leaving away your desire. You cannot rationalize this halal and haram on

01:06:25--> 01:06:32

your own. You could find some rational backing to it but on your own rationalize five daily prayers for me

01:06:33--> 01:06:34

on your own.

01:06:35--> 01:06:48

How, why not six and why not for why these times but only after Allah says do this. You say okay, I'll extract wisdom from it, but on your own, rationalized sujood

01:06:49--> 01:07:14

and record and standing and in that order not the reverse order why not start with the sujood first go to record and then stand? Why? Why not reading the Quran while you're on record? There's no rush rationality to it. Allah commands it then you follow it then when you follow it you extract benefits from it but on your own to legislate that you can rationalize fasting

01:07:16--> 01:07:25

you're always Subhanallah you know, you could be amazed at the fact that on your on our own could we think of fasting as a form of a bad stop eating and drinking

01:07:26--> 01:08:10

on its own could really look strange, right? Don't eat that's a by the way, why is that? Right? The eating is the most natural thing. Just like okay, don't sleep, that's a better why. But we don't have that right. But don't eat that's a bad don't drink. That's a better way is that Allah setsu so you cannot reason it out and think that makes sense. So Halal is halal because Allah said so Haram is haram because Allah said so. And once Allah does that, then you can find the wisdom that is in it, finding it on your own is not possible and in a bad is not always fine possible to reach the wisdom of that a Buddha or to understand why it is the case. So you understand and will emphasize in

01:08:10--> 01:08:17

this Inshallah, next week, no matter how brilliant you get, your mind has a limit.

01:08:19--> 01:09:08

So you don't go by what you think, all the time. And you don't go by what you like, all the time. Because your likes, could be disastrous. And what you think could be disasters, right. And if you don't believe that, think of people today, how they have split into factions, could husband be mad at him 31 Each faction is happy with what they have thinking that's that's an idea. Each faction could do husband be mad at him for the home. Each faction is happy with what they have. And they add to it thinking that the other faction is idiotic. Right? So if my mind is not the mind and your mind is not the mind because I could be wrong, or you're wrong, and both of us think that we're right.

01:09:09--> 01:09:53

Mind is not reliable. Right? You think something is right turns out to be wrong and the other way around. So what is the thing that is going to settle all these disputes and bring everybody all of humanity into consensus? One agreement, Allah has zoton who presides over everybody's mind, he says this is right. And everybody submits to it. He says this is wrong. everybody submits to it. If not, humanity will continue to fight till the Day of Judgment, because no one will submit to another human being. So the last fourth insha Allah will revisit insha Allah next week just to talk about tower and the danger of falling the hammer. And then we have a big one insha Allah which is belief

01:09:53--> 01:09:59

in Destiny, although it will cut up so this one Sharla should be interesting. Let's see in sha Allah if you have

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

questions, let me know in sha Allah so you had your hand

01:10:12--> 01:10:13

oh please Yes

01:10:18--> 01:10:41

shujaa Nabina Han Baraka Lof exactly lucky to meet yami to repeat it. So Allah azza wa jal he says he wants to bring another area of article afek For to can the document and bolster the belief in the authority of the Sunnah for Allah Rebecca, you mean on a hot day you had chemo coffee machines arabinose so malaria Doofy unforseen heard me mockolate recently with a Sleeman

01:10:42--> 01:11:21

where he said to subhanho wa Taala no Bye bye your Rob they will not believe until they make you a judge to settle the disputes that is between them and they find no hesitation no resistance in themselves towards what's your judgment, and the submit to it completely. So they submit externally and internally as well to the judgment of Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that is a great point that you bring, because of the Prophet also was a judge, and he settled disputes, these disputes and these judgments were worthy of documenting, because that is the judgment of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So do we say when we're going to discard, the sooner we can discard all

01:11:21--> 01:11:48

of that judgment? Or do we say that the Sahaba just simply ignored all of that and did not report it to us? If it's valuable, and it is, it must have survived? Because they thought that it was precious. And if something precious like that survived, it is meaningful till today, because who's better in judgment? After Allah azza wa jal, of course then Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam so we continue to learn from that. So does that go live for it? Yeah.

01:11:59--> 01:12:01

So to make do after the fourth prayer,

01:12:03--> 01:12:40

with your family, it's sunnah to me a bit sooner or recommended to make it individually but not collectively. So you teach your family and that's another good example of things that kind of resembled sooner, but also the Buddha become better by continuous practice. That is, if we're doing this every single fourth, or every day, it becomes a feature of the Salah. So people immediately right after the Sudan, they would raise your hands and everybody does it publicly in unison collectively. Again, the same question that we asked the Prophet did not recommend this, the to be done in this way.

01:12:41--> 01:13:21

The Sahaba did not do it in that way. So must have been invented later on. Now, a person may argue there's benefit in it, I'm teaching my kids and I'm teaching my wife and all of us make sure that we make that dua we say we're not going to legislate based on reason, and likes and dislikes, but rather we say I could teach them how to make dua beforehand. Give me a memorize advice here, okay. Now you make dua, and they do it on their own the same thing for the spouse the same thing for the husband. So each one is making their own individual to after the Salah, and that insha Allah would ensure two things one, you are doing the other recommended time and you're teaching them how to do

01:13:21--> 01:13:28

it without any violations in sha Allah or any any prohibition violating any prohibitions

01:13:29--> 01:13:29


01:13:34--> 01:13:34


01:13:37--> 01:13:40

A lot we we were listening.

01:13:42--> 01:13:43

But in terms of

01:13:44--> 01:13:48

what is the literature that we cannot what you can choose in this

01:13:49--> 01:13:50


01:13:51--> 01:13:53

We heard that SourceType that we cannot

01:14:05--> 01:14:47

Okay, so the question of the brother is that there are people who do not renounce the entire sunnah, but they pick and choose. And so he's saying that, is it possible to pick and choose and based on what criteria right what you're saying? So we first have to ask if who's picking and choosing and how they're doing it? Is it an individual who is not learned? Or is it a scholar? That's first so it's just an individual so did it individual who did not study the hadith is not qualified to make that choice? Just like you wouldn't take his word for what medicine to take and what none medicine to not take what food to eat, what not food not to take how to fix your car, if he's not specialist.

01:14:47--> 01:15:00

I wouldn't even trust him with fixing my car right? So how does he trust himself with going and deciding what is religiously significant Hadith authentic or what is not? Scholars can make these judgments based

01:15:00--> 01:15:38

On study and not only study years and years of study, immerse study into the narrator's and different chains of the Hadith and what have you. And only after that they can come out and say, authentic and authentic. Yes, there is this authentication of the Hadith, but not when it comes to all Bukhari and Muslim that already had been agreed on, right. But when it comes to other books, most of what is in the other books is authentic. There are some weak Hadith and a little bit of maybe fabricated in some a hadith, but the scholars know that. So a person is going to follow the scholars of Islam, reputable scholars of Islam, we say it hamdulillah you're not picking and

01:15:38--> 01:15:57

choosing based on desire. But if you make your own desire and likes and dislikes or your mind, the judge, then you're following how that we talked about and will emphasize this next time. And how is the opposite of Sharia good rather than following something that you submit to you're submitting Islam to your own

01:15:59--> 01:16:12

opinion and that is very dangerous, and ultimately could take a person out of Islam? Because then you're picking and choosing what you like or not you're submitting to Allah azza wa jal. So, does that answer

01:16:13--> 01:16:14

are they?

01:16:23--> 01:17:03

If a person does not have access to scholars who know so Hey, from the eighth authentic and sound from what is not, we say yes, at least at a minimum, just follow these six books. Just as as a as a matter of kind of relief and a basic belief. Okay, just follow these books. Now as they said they some weak Hadith in some of them, like I would avoid that, tell me they will exclude Bukhari and Muslim. So the four of our Buddha would tell me the NSA, and if no matter, there's some weak ahaadeeth The strongest among them is a necessity, then I would I wouldn't tell me the aura, like the weakest Nomada but some weak ahaadeeth. But even these weak ahaadeeth, they have significance to

01:17:03--> 01:17:08

them, because they could bolster Another weak Hadith that becomes authentic, or had significant

01:17:09--> 01:17:34

contribution to the practice of Islam, some filthy opinions. So the hunta or their mother Shafi or what have you, they rely on some of these weak Hadees for some reason, so they're not without value altogether. So a person is completely confused, has no access to any scholar, we see at least the 66 books and you stick to them, a person is a bit more advanced and you have access and he could follow the other scholars in what they say

01:17:38--> 01:17:39

no one on this side

01:17:41--> 01:17:42

and no one here.

01:17:43--> 01:17:44

Have okay, I totally.

01:17:57--> 01:18:19

Know, Zack Allahu, so he said here and that is a good question. Right? So when centrefeed Islami there's a hadith that says, Whoever sent Nephele Islami, sunnah Hassan or whoever introduces in Islam, a good sunnah. He has the reward for it and anyone who follows him till the Day of Judgment, and the one who introduces in Islam, a bad sunnah, right? Tech minuted Hadith, he will have its

01:18:21--> 01:19:03

sin and the sin of everybody who irritates him. So what explain this right? What explains this is that the incident that preceded this hadith, which is that the prophets of Allah audio Salam was calling for sadaqa. And people are not giving, we're hesitant to give sadaqa until a person comes to be sober, like a bunch of money in his hand, he's almost not able to hold it. And he takes it and he puts it in front of the profits of lobbyists. And when he does that, people start following each other giving sadaqa because of what being inspired by what he did, so he said some a lot. He was elements in Nephele, Islamism that and Hassan they want to introduce his new Islam, a good sunnah.

01:19:03--> 01:19:47

So it was within the borders of Islam, what is already acceptable in Islam, he does something and people imitate him, then he gets that soon. So it doesn't mean we're outside the borders of Islam. So it's not a totally new salah. Otherwise, if we understand it that way, anybody can do anything and new Salah and you have a new type of fasting. It's within the parameters of Islam. Something that maybe let's say people forgot, and this person starts fasting, Mondays and Thursdays encourages people to do other people imitate sadness, and the Hasina starts to read the Quran and teach it people started to abandon the Quran. Because of that he brings people to it, he gets rewarded

01:19:47--> 01:19:59

everybody else. So this is sunnah Hassan in Islam, meaning already approved by Allah and His Messenger, or the Salatu was Salam and he inspires people when he does that. He's rewarded for it and everybody else

01:20:00--> 01:20:00


01:20:01--> 01:20:02

Mark Luffy, Charlie

01:20:05--> 01:20:05


01:20:13--> 01:20:16

man I had the funnies for what?

01:20:19--> 01:20:20

Somebody doesn't

01:20:27--> 01:20:28

know me it's not a bad.

01:20:30--> 01:20:32

Exactly. It's of course

01:20:35--> 01:20:44

not. So in a beta, it's done. It's complete, and it's done. So I mean, you're talking about outside of a battle right outside of your bed, it's open, right?

01:20:45--> 01:21:24

Do whatever you want outside of a bar, as long as you have some guidelines as well, right? of, you know, avoiding extravagance or this and that you have these but otherwise innovating and you know, discovering, you could do whatever you want over there, as long as the intent is good. And the goal is good, insha Allah, but when a bad, it's much more restricted. And because you simply do not know if this a bet is going to be accepted or not. You know, you don't really know, like, and just the last thing I will say insha Allah. I don't have to say, by the way, I'm just telling because we finished the lesson. But I mean, I'm struck a time by a Buddha Radi Allahu Anhu. Before his Islam,

01:21:24--> 01:22:00

I, he was seeking the searching you know, what, who was Allah? How do I worship him? One of the things that he said, which struck me is that he was trying to worship Allah azza wa jal before he met the Prophet sallahu Sydenham, and he would say, Yeah, Allah, if I know how to worship you, I would but I don't know how to, like what is pleasing to you? What do I do that you would like as a form of worship? Because on your own, how do you come up with anything that you know that is going to please Allah Zildjian, you have no idea it's late. And I liken this to what, you know, a safe that needs specific combinations to open play.

01:22:01--> 01:22:34

If you don't put you know, put in a specific combination, does it open? You can try whatever you want is okay, I'm going to open a 10 five door and nobody's going to open why because unless you bring that combination is all has to be sealed. A bed is exactly like that in my mind, unless you have the combination ticktick this this, this and then it opens and the only one who knows the combination is Allah azza wa jal. This is what I like, you're not going to force him to accept what you like, I'm going to worship you this way. He doesn't like that. But if Allah Who likes it, then you

01:22:35--> 01:22:49

you will do it and that will be accepted. So existence exactly like that, unless you do it in that specific order. And that's why following is important, in that specific, you know, progression, then it's not going to be accepted. I will

01:22:50--> 01:22:56

tell you this is a common law Hey, Allah Subhana Allah Hemric a shadow Allah in a dentist Africa to hamdulillah
