He was salam. Loma Linda Mahan phone. Oh, and finally my LinkedIn was Edelman horrible. I mean, Obama in the creek, shoe Creek was in a bad attic. And my bad.
So last time we discussed Iman and the definition of Eman and the proper definition of it versus the improper definition that had come after the time of the Sahaba, or the feeling of aliveness, the authority or the Allahu Anhu. So we discussed the Hawara edge definition, and the Moto G as definition. And one thing that I wanted to emphasize before kinda we conclude this topic, how a bidder generates another bidder in the opposite direction. So that's why it's sometimes a person asked, So what's wrong with this? Like, if it's a bid, and you don't see the harm in it, and you see what, what's wrong with it. And he say, any data that is accepted and that is practiced, what it
does is that it does extinguish the sooner that is supposed to take its place with me. Right? So if there's a better and you allow it into your life or in society, it takes the place of a sooner practice. So that's one. But it also what it does is that it generates because data is an extreme, it's a deviation, it's not upon the right path, right. So what it generates is a reaction must generate a reaction and that reaction goes in the opposite direction into another extreme, because seldom seldom do humans when they see an extreme, respond to it with moderation. Right? Even religiously or outside of religion itself, look at politics, right? When you see an extreme, you
oppose it with another extreme. That's how humans are created right? Unless you are moderated and the need for that moderation, divine guidance. So when the Howard said, The if you commit an act that is a major sin for them, you become what a Kaffir Alright, so that's an extreme a very harsh position. And then we're at the Zilla adopt that position as well. The Martha's either adopt that position, even though in technicality they would call it something different summon Zilla to in vain and menzi to attain we're not gonna call him a Kaffir. But he in effect is when he meets Allah as Zota. He's a Kaffir he will be forever in hellfire. So in effect, they adopted the Hermitage
position. And another point to emphasize here is that I'm not actually done with the first one. So I'm just gonna digressing emphasize this one welcome to the first, which is that it did mention this lifetime, maybe. But anyway, it's worth mentioning again. So imagine that if somebody is labeled a rationalist, it means that you're a human humanitarian as well, right? That you're kind say, right, if you're rational, you're the new kind. And if you're religious, you're what? Very harsh and judgmental. So you find that in fact, it was the opposite. And is still the opposite. Because the monitor Zillow who are labeled the rationalist are very harsh in their judgment, when it comes to
people says if you commit a major sin, you're what a disbeliever right? And these are the rationalists who are using elemental Kalam and their arguments back and forth. Whereas if you listen to the self included in them, Muhammad of no humble and all the scholars before they say no, it's a major sin, but you're still subject to the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal, right, that yeah, it does not take you out of iman. So there was mercy you can lose sunnah are the ones who have most mercy when it comes to Allah's creation? It's not judgment. Right. It's most mercy to Allah's creation and if they say to something haram or halal, or Cofer or this or that they're not
pronouncing it because they want to pronounce it like that is because Allah azza wa jal told us so. So you simply are conveying this to the population to people. Right? So
going back to that point, so So when the Howard has said that this is
disbeliever he's a disbeliever because he's commits a major sin, the Moto G. Right. And by the way, you don't need to remember by the way, the names it doesn't matter what matters really is just you understand the content of what these people said and with these people said you don't have to remember what the name of this sector is what the name of that sector is, it doesn't really matter. So no more to come and they say no what, Eman is disconnected from actions. Right disconnected from action. So Eman is what one thing whether you fast and pray or commit sins, your Eman is what the same so something that is static you either have it or you don't. So that's why they're a lie.
Although Ramallah Imani them their famous statement of this is that no sin or no action can harm Iman. And that is what is the danger of this
The danger of this is that you then suppose that you have Iman that you're a good person, and actions become or deeds become secondary. So something like Salah and fasting and this and all of that hajj and sadaqa and good character become secondary because you have Iman. And if it does not hurt you, then you have a pass into Jana, right? Of has intergender you're forgiven because your actions don't matter when it comes to your iman. So before we leave that topic, and we just wanted to emphasize, as I said last time, inshallah is that, that belief, that disconnection between Iman, and between an action that persists till today, and the motivation for it may not be the historical
motivation at the Morgiana has. So people who believe that today do not identify or know what the merger of the past have said, but they have embraced it. Or let's say we have embraced it in totality, because of a more Western attitude when it comes to what defines virtue or what defines a good person. So it's common, below LM to hear people say, and this is non Muslims, but then it gets adopted by Muslims as well, for a person to say I'm a good person.
So how are you a good person, say I a good person, I don't lie.
I don't cheat. Don't steal. I'm good to my neighbors. Right. And they would include in it as well, even some civic duties and responsibilities. So I vote, right? I recycle.
I don't know I had the third one. I lost it. But you understand, right? So I vote I recycle, right?
What? I volunteer, right, I volunteer.
I don't harm my neighbors. And so that makes me what a good person. Right? That makes me a good person. Even though that person at the same time may not pray, and may not fast, and they may commit major sins, but their definition of what a good person is does not come from Allah azza wa jal, but from secular society, because this is how non Muslims define a good person. Right? So this is really a separation or divorce between first emaan and actions. And second, being very selective as to what defines a virtuous person, a good person. And we have to say to all of that, is first, we cannot be our own judges of who is good and who's bad. And we cannot judge ourselves.
Because if you think about it, and you will allow them, I think, 95% or even higher of people, when they're asked, Are you a good person will say what?
Yes, but see, but despite the fact that you did a, b, c, and d, and you swindled people, and you killed so on. So you'll say yeah, but I had an excuse for this. And I had an excuse for this. And with all of that, I'm still a good person, right? So. So except for very few, everybody believes that they are a good person, no matter what you do. Well, that is not really very objective, and not very helpful, because we Even in secular senses, will take that person and put him in prison and say, what you really not that good?
Yeah, you may think that you may say that to yourself, but the way that we judge you is what? No, we are not. So we have to punish you, but tells you that you're nearly not that good. So we need an objective criterion. And we need an objective judge, and that is no other than Allah azza wa jal, who tells you then, if you fast and if you pray, and also also you abstain from harming your neighbors, and you get to people around you, but you do certain things. That is what a good person isn't. That is what a man is. So it's not my own definition. And it's not society's definition which keeps which keeps shifting, but it is a definition that comes from Allah azza wa jal, and it must
always rely on what you believe, and the actions of the heart, and what you say with your tongue and the deeds of the body. Right? Without that he man is incomplete. Right? And you cannot judge yourself as a good person, right? So that's what I really wanted to say about Iman. And if there's something that I missed in sha Allah bring it up insha Allah in the questions and answers of something that was not very clear, asked me in sha Allah during the q&a period right after the lesson in sha Allah.
Now from that we move on to discussing the Sahaba and Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah now moves into another point which defines the foundations of the Sunnah. So of the foundations of the Sunnah also is for you to believe meaning you cannot be
upon the path of the Sunnah, right to be among those whom Allah had praised to be among those who are, are following the prophets, Allah lucidum unless you believe in and then he adds this, why you will have the almighty burden Obeah Abu Bakr in Saudi from amagno Hapa from Earth mount of no Athan, no but demo her hola FL artha Mahatama Homosassa Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number 30 V Dalek. He says the best of this ummah, after its Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is a Woba Crusoe D, then Omar Al Hapa. Then Ruth Maghreb, not a fan. We put these three first, as did the message as did the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, they put them forward as the best
and we do the same. They did not disagree in this issue. Then he says film about Doha about the hula itself after those three US hub was Shura, the people of the consultation meaning with the wounds that Omar or the Allahu Anhu is going to be one gives again a pass away.
He appoint he said, choose a Khalifa from one of those five meaning those will be the people of consultation and they will decide the next Khalifa so he says Allah you have no idea Taalib will tell how was Zubayr or Abdul Rahman Oh facade. He says Kulu whom you're slow lil Hilda each one of them is suitable to be a Khalifa and each one of them is an imam hilar or you'd have either Lika Illa Hadith near Omar he says we say this based on the hadith of Omar or the Allahu Anhu. He said could Nana do what a soul Allah He is Allah Allahu Allah, he was seldom a Hayyan was horrible who moved away a few Runa Woba Corinne from omaruru sama Ozma note from Manas good, he says we used to
count while the prophets of Allah Allah He was in them was alive, and they were abundance of Sahaba alive. He said, They will say Abu Bakr and then Omar then Earth man, and then we'll be quiet, meaning that in virtue 123 and then will be quiet. So if you remember, in the beginning of this, we talked about the importance of the way of the Sahaba remember, the very beginning, the importance of the way of the Sahaba and the understanding of the Sahaba and that we should follow their example and understand religion, the way that they understood it and practice it the way we they practiced it. So I hope inshallah you remember all of this, if not, you can just go back to it and refresh
your memory. So following the Sahaba and believing that they are the model is predicated on believing that they are virtuous, right? That is, if you don't believe that this haba are credible. And rochas Would you follow them? Would you listen to what they're saying? Absolutely not. So you must believe that they are the best and their understanding is the best for you to say that, yes, I what they say about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is accurate. Their fatwas are the best of faith towards their ways or the best of ways. So it's essential to believe in the excellence of the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu. And it is Subhanallah very clear. And I think we also talked about that it's
very clear in the Quran, that Allah praised the Sahaba of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that the prophets of Allah he was in them praise praised the Sahaba all in totality in general, and then specifically when it came to specific sahabas. So it is very hard. It's very hard for a person to read the Quran objectively, without bias and come out with the conclusion that oh, the Sahaba were the worst of people, or that they somehow betrayed the messengers of Allah Allah sent them or that they they betrayed the message. No, you have to come out with the fact that they are the best of people are all the Allahu Anhu what I'll do and who Allah is pleased with them and they
are pleased with him. And so Allah azza wa jal, for instance, says in the Quran in surah, Al Maha Jerry and Alladhina, resuming dare him one word to him. If the owner of Allah mean Allah He wanted Why not wait on Sologne Allah Hawara sudo Allah eco homicidal coons ALLAH is talking here about the fate and he says, Who is to receive it and then he says allele for Cora and Mohabbatein to them hygiene, who are poor, who were driven out of their families and their land see King, the favors of Allah and His
happiness with them here his pleasure with them and championing Allah and His messenger. They are the truthful then Allah says Hola, Dena turbo Dharawal Iman I mean cuddly him, you hipbone him and her gra li him What are you doing a few Satori him ha Jemima Oh to Zerona Allah unfussy him Oh can I be him ha salsa OMA Yoko Shahana FC for hola ecohome roughly one and also who follows them and should also in is entitled to receive the fate
is those who had settled in the land of iman before then be
For the migrants, and they love those who migrate to them, and they are not envious of the good or the favors that Allah had given to the Mujahideen before that, given it to the unsought and they favor others over themselves even if they are in need. So, it tells you here
that Allah has noted his phrasing them hygiene. Why did they come out of their lands? Allah Azza did says if the horn of Allah mean Allah, he was the one who for the sake of whom, Allah azza wa jal and they are also to support the religion of Allah and support Mohammed atta, his Salah to was salam. That's the testimony from Allah zodion upon the companions of Muhammad, Ali Salatu was Salam and then he praises the unsavoury by saying what they receive them, oh, hygiene, and they honor them, and they love to receive them. And they give them even though they may be in need, they give them what they have. And they are not envious of the fact that the mohajirs been accepted Islam before
them and so they are better than them.
So as a complete, generous attitude that the unsought had, that you often do not find among human beings to be free of envy, and jealousy, and possessiveness, and he saw the money, here's the money, the land, here's the land, even you're better than us, okay, you are better than us. And all of that is because of the loved Allah as Odin and they had Eman and love Muhammad Ali, his Salatu was Saddam.
And then Hamid rasool Allah who are livina ma Hua Shi, the olive Cofer Johanna obey Nomura, homebrew cancer, this is a praise from Allah azza wa jal to the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why am I mentioning this? Because it's just it's not conceivable that a person could read this, and then insult the Sahaba of the prophets a lot. Isn't that how where is your mind? And I'm not saying this to insult Right? Or do you know to condemn I'm just saying that you should be objective when you're reading the Quran and say Allah is phrasing the Sahaba then you close the most half and you insult them. Did you not understand what you just read? With me? It didn't mean not
understand that Allah has a really says Tara hookah and Sujin Jana you will see them prostrating to Allah in ruku. You will see them in sujood. Right. And then he said also that he can methadone FITARA or methadone fill in G. And then this is their example in the Torah. Their example in the in Chile says like they are supporting him Medallia salatu salam, and he could do example, right of a tree and then you have other smaller trees that come and they support the main trunk and it becomes stronger. So Muhammad Allah His Salatu was Salam alone, was not as strong until he got all the Sahaba and by that he became stronger. Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So he says, Allah, praise them in
the Torah, Allah praise them in the Injeel Allah praise them in the Quran. So of course, the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam are the best. And if you believe that they are the best and they are, as he said that he is Salatu was Salam hygro Nasir carne. The best of people are my generation. If you believe that they are the best, then you emulate. They become the model. They become the way that you understand the Sharia, you want to live Islam, you want that you want to practice Islam, right, they become the inspiration and then you check your understanding of the Quran and of the Sunnah against what they've said. Right? So if somebody asks you how do you understand this, if
you see what the Sahaba of the prophets of Laos and I'm sad about it, meaning you go to the books of Tafseer. And the, the essence of the books of Tafseer are the ones who will come and say, prophets, Allah Salam said this, if not Abbas, this said this, if not Omar Sadat, ignoramus, oh, this said this will be your Blue cup said that and then the Buddha had said this Equitymaster meaning it's all what reported. And then after that, you can take it, condense it add to it, but the essence of all of it is what a thought traditions, you don't come, right. Without references interpret the Quran.
Right? You don't come? If you want to think about it, do you come to a constitution fresh and interpret it to yourself? Any constitution? Or do you take what had been said before? Do you go before a judge and you argue with the law based on your own fresh understanding of the law? Or do you argue based on precedence? precedence? Right? Because that matters, right? It matters, because this is how the law was interpreted this what a previous judge has said about it, and it's a cumulative, it's not like or it could disregard all of this. I think they said this and I think that as some people do today, you go to an IRA it's say it says this, a hadith it says that, how do you
know if it's just mere understanding? Well, I can come up with my own. Thank you. Right, right. So why is yours better than mine?
We're equal. But if you say no, I mean, it's based on something, then we will what make that thing the judge between us. And if that thing is valid, if it's the Sahaba, we agree.
If it's the Tabea enough, taken from the Sahaba, we agree, right? If it is an someone unreliable, then no, we don't, we don't. So the Sahaba, right, is this kind of linchpin, that safety valve that differentiate between those who are upon the Sunnah and those who are not? And among the Sahaba, right, he says, Rahim Allah Muhammad, let's go back. hayride the OMA better than a be a boubakeur for murmur for mouth man. The best of the Sahaba and the best in fact of creation after the prophets of Allah
is a worker and then Omar and Rothman right. So this OMA is the best tomorrow
quantum Pyro machine or collegiate leanness so you are the best OMA that had been given your you know given to people or you are the best OMA that had existed.
So if this is the best OMA Okay, meaning it's better than all the other nations who is the best of this ummah, the new the prophets, Allah Salam, followed by Abu Bakr and Omar and Earthman. So after the category of the prophets, all of them, all the prophets, and all the messengers, right after that, whose best, say Abu Bakr
and he from Adam, till the last person on this earth who is the best after the prophets, because it does not matter how good you are, you're not better than the Prophet.
And you're not better than a messenger, even the more minor of prophets and messengers, those that we don't know about. They're still better than Abu Bakr and Omar. Right. But remove that category because there's a very distinct category after that, who's best Abu Bakr. Then comes Omar and then comes with
the virtue of Obamacare. Well, the Allah Han was so well established, right that he or tear ramola He says these three, there's a Joomla on them, consensus that they are the best. So aboubaker is phrased in the Quran.
Right, right. If the hole is so heavy, let the Hudson in Allahumma Anna, right. When he says to his companion who's saying here, the prophets Allah Hudson misspeaking, so he's saying to his companion, who is his companion, will Bucher and this is by no consensus, even of from those who don't like Abu Bakr, they will tell you this I is about Abu Bakr they admit, right, it's it's not in dispute, right? Because it's good to actually have that understanding even those who will win as I said, when they close the Mossad, they will insult Abu Bakr, they will still tell you that this is about Abubaker. But they'll try to wiggle out of it. But they'll say it's about him. So he says to his
companion to his companion. Don't be sad. What is it? What after in Allah, Allah is womb with whom? Us Now me?
And Allah Allah did when he when he is selecting these words, He's selecting carefully, right? He wanted to exclude a bucket from it first, he wouldn't call him his companion. And he wouldn't say Allah is with us.
Because if a work of God forbid, right, as they say, and I'm saying this, so that kind of it gets ingrained into your mind. They are saying that Rebecca, God forbid is a hypocrite or he betrayed the message and all of this, Allah would talk to him about him like this in the Quran. Does it make sense? So that your email will be clear and it's about upon proof and no one is going to come and shake it easily and say, You know what he did you know what he did not do?
You know, that, you know, he has taken from falta Mahina hat and her inheritance and because of that she was angry with him until she died.
Is there any faulty model the yellow on her after the death of her father? Rasool Allah Alayhi Salatu was Salam she came to Abu Bakr and she said, Where is my inheritance?
Right? Where is my inheritance? Like, you know, your daughter will inherit from you and so and so's daughter will inherit from him, but I don't inherit from Rasulullah sallallahu is and what is my inheritance? So he said, What are the Allahu Anhu? He said, I heard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in nama Aisha al Anbiya Ilan Walrath. Mata Rachna who sadaqa he says we prophets we don't bequeath inheritance. We don't give inheritance whatever we leave behind is a sadaqa. So faulty model the Allahu Allah was upset because of this right? And then as six months after that she died. Right? Please.
Does that mean that Fatima was right just
because she was the daughter of the prophets, Allah Allah wa salam and Abu Bakr was wrong, just because he wasn't know who was right.
Over capital D. Alana was right, because the rest of us have also confirmed this. But we also preserve what the virtue on the honor of faulty model the law, I know we say everybody is subject to make mistakes and everybody can make be angry, but doesn't take anything away from her. She is of the best woman in paradise. Fatima, right. So if two people fight or two people are angry with each other, it does not degrade both or either of them. Because it's could happen it could be an honest disagreement. I don't see your point. I'm angry because of this. But at the same time, both of you are of the people have genuine
so Allah as it appraised him in the Quran.
And there are a couple of other areas where if you go to the tafsir less explicit, they'll say this is about aboubaker.
Okay, and this is about Abu Bakr, you go to the Sunnah, and then the prophets Allah Allah will send them to he said, Welcome to Medina. I mean, Al are the hollyland at the hub to Abubaker if I were to take a Helene, a very close friend of the people of this earth, I would take a boubakeur
Okay, but I am the leader of Allah has which I am the ideal of Allah. And that's why that title earlier Allah is better than Habibollah Yeah. Habibollah because each one of you could be Habibollah but you don't get to be highly Rola except to write Mohammed and Ibrahim oedema salah.
The rest No, but anybody can be Habibollah and then he said that he is Salatu was Salam Leia play in FL Misty the whole cartoon Illa. So that ILAHA to be Bucha is that there will not remain any small door in the masjid, except that you would close it permanently except the door of Abubaker meanings so people when they live there on the masjid, or the prophets of allottee or Sydenham, right they had the same right the same wall of the masjid and other houses. It's the same wall shared wall. So some of them had small doors from where they could go into the MR directly to want to tell her so the prophets Allah was enemies at seal all the doors except the door of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu to
show his virtue.
And he said in a hadith really that is beautiful.
He said man a thought and he murdered man a thought and he murdered a B book. He said no money benefited me and helped me like the money of Abubaker. So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu and he was quick to cry about the Allahu Anhu he just started crying and say, Well, hello Ana WOMAD Illa Allah rasool Allah, He says, Am I not and my money only for you are profitable. Right? He says he only no money or whatever. And people would give to aid and finance this and that but Abubakar will the Allahu Anhu gave at a time when nobody was giving. And it was sort of Lysa lorrison and him that's why he said, Man, if at any man no amount of money helped me like Abu Bakr did, and so Abu Bakr just
started crying and said all of it is for you. And even I am for you. Subhan Allah will the Allah know? And it says in the Hadith, I'm trying to remember that hadith. Yeah, that hadith he says, Mammon had in law who Allah Yeah, don't Illa
Illa Allah buck, LA who Allah you know, yeah, don't you curfew Allah azza wa jal, Dalia, it says, nobody has done us a favor, meaning to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam has done a favor, except that we have repaid him except Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu. He has done us a favor, Allah repays him for it. As the prophets Ali Salam wants to show you here, kind of the immense work that Abu Bakr has done. Even though the prophets Allah Salam has more favours upon Abu Bakar than a Baba Baba can upon the Prophet, obviously. But he just wants you to show you that he has done so much for the sake of Allah as soldier. So the best in this ummah, is Abu Bakr followed by Omar are the Allahu Anhu and the
virtue of Omar Radi Allahu Anhu ALC also is well known is well known how the prophets Allah Allah Who sinned and praised him Allah miserly Islam be had we had below Morena aka Allah strengthen Islam with the best or the more beloved of the two Omar's to you. Right? And he saw Omar Radi Allahu Anhu in a dream. And he was kind of wearing something very long and dragging it it says how how would you interpret this and this this is Iman. Right? And then he saw in a dream also Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He was drinking milk, drinking milk in his dream is good. So he was drinking milk. And then for athletes to formula to Omar what had remained in that cup. He says I gave it to rumor. He says
yeah, what did you interpret that? He says that's not
right? It's cetera et cetera, et cetera Malaka shaytaan masala confit Janila silica generally Rafa Jake if the shaytaan happens to be walking the same path as yours. He will take another path out of the fear of Umar, Radi Allahu Anhu. And we know also in the Hadith that between fitna and Omar Radi Allahu Anhu is a closed door. As long as Omar was alive, there will be no fitna. Right. As long as Omar is alive would be no fitna. With his death, the door of fitna opened. So you have a worker you have Omar, and they have your man or the Allah who and whom Jemaine and Earth man is the person who the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had given two of his daughters to two of his daughters. And he said
that he has such a higher and he is so shy, that evil the angels of Allah azza wa jal are shy of Earth man. And then when he asked Allah His salatu salam who would assist in Jason Nusrah that that army of difficulty what there was no no no one to finance it and it was difficult times. Difficult times. They didn't have enough money, they didn't have enough forces cat, you know, transportation and Earth mantle the Allahu Anhu came with all of his money or a lot of money and he financed Jay shoot.
And he said LA is Salatu was Salam motherwort with men on Mirtha. Allah bad, nothing that Earthman will do after will hurt him. And he that he's done, and he's of the people of Jana, and those are from the actual MOBA, Sharon Babak, Reville, Jana O'Meara filled Jana Earthman fifth Gen nawala. You and Phil Jana until he finished the 10. So, hear this from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a clear indication of the virtue of those people. And what that statement from ignorant Omar that he said, while the prophet was alive, we used to say
that the best of this amaze aboubaker Then Omar and then Earth man.
Now why did they say that this is consensus and even stronger that consensus This is a Hadith, right? Because if this was common knowledge, so no matter who is saying what Kootenay are, we used to say this is common knowledge among them. This must have reached home
must have reached home if this is common. This is what they're saying, must have reached home.
The Prophet sallallahu Sydenham by must have reached the Prophet. And even if you say what may be made, what must have also Allah knows about it. Right? Allah knows about it and must have reached the prophets. Allah, Allah says Allah, if it was wrong, Allah would have corrected it, he would not leave such a belief to be so widespread,
to leave belief to be so widespread and not corrected. Impossible.
And also for the prophets, Allah loosen them to be alive. And that will be a belief, it means that there is what consent. This is true. So here we're talking about an Iijima
consensus. So somebody insults the Sahaba in general, or insults, in particular Abu Bakr and Omar on Earth man, this is a bit
this is a bit and this is fiscal. This is a major sin. Right? Because you're going against the companions of Muhammad sallahu wa salam and if they are not reliable, who is if a person says right that aboubaker is a Kaffir, God forbid, or that Omar or if man or says the Sahaba, all of them or the majority of them is a Kaffir, that itself is a statement of Kufa.
Right itself is a statement of comfort. Now, we're not saying that that person immediately becomes a Kaffir. I'm not saying this as saying the statement itself is good for and then that person has to be educated and that person has their
his questions need to be answered. And his doubts erased. If after that, if after that. He insists upon that then yes, he becomes a Kaffir because of it. But why does he become a Kaffir if he adopts that statement? You're going against the Quran, you're going against the Sunnah and you're going against each map, right? Just like if you say what, Salah is not an obligation, we don't have $5 a day, you're going against the Quran, the Sunnah and Iijima. So this is Salah and
Quran and Sunnah and Iijima in this matter. And that's why this is really important. And this is, by the way, the foundation of Islam altogether. So even those who will say these things about Abu Bakr and Umar and Uthman, they have you and asked you by Allah azza wa jal if and again, be objective, the Quran that you read,
who collected that
Majan right. You say there was this and that and then you open almost half a new read and they collected it. Right. And can you imagine there will be a religious
Have faith of some sort. And the most sacred book that they have they say is collected by the worst of us.
Does that make sense? Okay, like you go to the Christians who collected the Bible, the hypocrites among us collected it, and yet that's foundational, right? That's foundational. It doesn't make sense. If not the best of you. Okay, then your whole religion doesn't make sense. It has to be otherwise what's the what's the incentive behind collecting the Quran? And who really spread Islam to the areas of Iraq and Iran and you know, a sham and Egypt, the greatest expansion happened during what, during the time of the holdover? So and they did this for what because they were hypocrites because they were pretending because they were after money. What did they get from all of that?
Yeah, now Omar Radi Allahu Anhu and he died Abu Bakr when he died, what did he leave behind? They were not seekers of the dunya. So it must have been something that is pleasing to Allah as the gym that motivated them. Now, you could disagree if you want to disagree with some of the things that they have done, but to impugn their intentions and their Eman and all of this, that going, going beyond the bounds, and that becomes a true sin and a true disobedience of Allah azza wa jal
so let's just continue here and then because I want to touch upon a couple of points in sha Allah says them about the her Allah, US harbor Shura. Then after that the people of the shura who were alive as we said, whom Omar Radi Allahu Anhu said, these are the people that if you want you select one of them to be a Khalifa after me. So the people in the shorter alley you've not abita olive oil has Zubayr Abdul Rahman have no outside. He says
Muhammad Rahim Allah Colonia slowly Philip Khilafah we're Kulu whom Imam. He says each one of them is suitable to be a Khalifa and each one of them is an imam. Right? So he's a point here right? Is that sometimes you hear people say Abubaker Amarth man, but when they mentioned earlier about the Allahu Anhu they say an Imam Ali. Right.
Right. Imam Ali right. It's common to hear so the question here Why do you see Imam Ali but not Imam Abu Bakr
or Imam Omar or remembereth man because Imam Ali comes from what
with the from the shear is borrowed from there even though he's an email and he is an imam ona is an imam. Absolutely, absolutely. But why do you can assign that to him but not the rest? If you're gonna say Imam Ali you're right you're absolutely right but the better start saying Imam Abu Bakr Imam Omar and remember asthma.
Just for you to be just because when you sing a laid out like this, it is
inaccurate right? It's an accurate similar to that when you say i Li Karim Allah azza wa jal Alimi Allah Allah has honored his face, Karim Allah wotja We say Allah has honored his face for sure. Right? Is where people have Jana is honored his face but why that and the rest not.
So don't distinguish right? Same thing and I thought about that Imam and Mehdi Mundo we talked about mahadi Al Imam Al Mahdi. That's not his designation in the Hadith way away but this is borrowed again from Shia. He's not Al Imam Al Mahdi. So don't say Al Imam Al Mahdi can erase this he Khalifa or and Maddie he comes in the Hadith isn't Maddie just say Al Mahdi you want him he's a Khalifa Imam has borrowed from there. So you want to distinguish right between this and between that inshallah so he says each one of them is a Khalifa or suitable to be a Khalifa and each one of them is an imam. Right?
Then he moves on he says the mummy and daddy as hobby sure after the shorter Hello but very minimal hygiene. Criminal on Solomon's hobby Rasulullah he Aloka regional to Serbia Katya a word and a word. It says after the people of the shura, the ones that we mentioned by name comes the people of birth comes the people of better and if the from the people of better hygiene are better, and then the answer. So in general, the people of Hijra come first in virtue more than the people of unser, right, so within the category of better hygiene and unsought among them. Right. And he says, Hola, quadrille Hijra to Serbia Katya, a word Anwar wala, in proportion or in accordance with how early
they accepted Islam and how early they migrated. So the earlier they migrate, the better they are. And the earlier their Islam is, the better they are. The question they want to ask you is why is that the case?
The earlier and this is, by the way, our average rule there are some exceptions I mentioned it, but why is that the case?
because there's a stronger Iman yeah
right there's they had nothing to gain and they had to give the most. Like when you're early in Islam, you imagine the amount of sacrifice, right, and the hardship that you would face, and the punishments and the torture and the pressure and all of this and no incentive because there's few among you. So those were willing to accept Islam and strive and sacrifice did it at a time when Islam was the weakest, or Muslims were the weakest. Versus when it came later on that Islam, white became Burmese spread and Islam became strong, that's different. So the amount of sacrifice and hardship that they received is greater. So that's the case when it is difficult to be a Muslim.
Allah rewards you more, even till today. So if you have a lot of people around you, Al Hamdulillah, and they're all strong in their Islam and your practice because of that, and you're a good Muslim because of it, Allah rewards you. But if you're alone, and you're still a good Muslim, or you're on the Sunnah, and there's a lot of bit as around and you're still holding on to the Sunnah Allah rewards you more because of it, right? Because you have to struggle. So he says, in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sydenham, he said that they will come a people home, one of them will have rewards a 50 among you, and he was speaking to the sahaba. Right? So some Sahaba not that liked like
Arabic Quran, Allah right. There's some Sahaba He will say to them, that they will have the reward of 50 among you, they said among the US are among them, he says not among you. He says because the only content you do not agree I wanna you find people to assist you, when you want to do good and they want right? Now, that does not mean that they are better than the Sahaba we're going to dress that in sha Allah, but that in that thing, Allah rewardssm Allah says, Keep in mind that when it's hard, Allah rewards more. So that's why he said the earlier there Islam is, the better they are. That's why in mohajir 18 are better than the unser, because they had to go through things that the
answer did not have to write. And we say this is on average the case because there are some exceptions to it small exceptions because Omar accepted Islam a little bit later. All right, he didn't accept that. Islam at the time of Saddam Nabu, of course, Abdullah Mohammed No.
But he said that Islam later but he's better than them. Right? So early enough, but later than them, so there is kind of some some
nuance to that to that law that we described.
Then he's a form of lunacy by the How old is how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Malacanang lady Bertha V hem, St. And then the best people after that are the companions of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam meaning the general the remaining companions, that generation to which the prophets was sent. Anyone who had kept his companionship a year, a month, a day or an hour or had seen him. He is his companion, local municipality. Hola, khatrimaza. Hi Belle, he will have companionship in accordance in proportion to the time that he kept with him. We cannot serve your car to Houma who and the meaning is companionship this thing thing was sent me I mean one other area he Navara so
even if he just looked at him once heard from him once he is a companion for Adnan Superba, who have a lot of mental Cornelia de la mera who Walla Walla Walla be Jamia
Canada, hola in Edina, so he wouldn't be here what was me, fidelity so but to him in a Tabea, you know, whatever, I'm a little cooler.
So he says, the ones who is the least in companionship to the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam is better than the generation that had followed him. Even if that generation or one of them were to meet Allah azza wa jal with all possible good deeds. Those who had kept the companionship or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and met him and heard from him. They are better because they had seen him under his Salatu was Salam and the better than the Tabea even even if the tambourine had done everything, right. So what he is saying here, Rahim Allah is first he's telling you the definition of the sahabi
who is the sahabi.
Of course, they exist at levels, but at the lowest level, who is a Sahabi a one who has seen the prophets Allah Allah wa salam, and heard from him even once.
That definition of a Sahabi applies to him. There are higher levels of Sahaba those who spent years with him. Those have learned a lot from him. But even if only met him once and heard from him once, he is also happy, and he says there is a virtue to that encounter. That there is nothing else that anyone after could do to surpass it. Even if you pray as much as you pray, and fast as much as you can, and spread as much knowledge as you can. You will not
exceed and surpass the Sahaba of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So any one of the tab you're in even the greatest RBE is not better than the lowest Sahabi
Okay, so the Sahaba that category is closed, is closed no one after could be better than them. He said like why is that the case? Why is that the case? He said salatu salam, let the soup was hobby for AlLadhina fcbd Hallo Amphicar Hadoken Mithila Jabba you heard in the harbor, Marbella. Muda had him O'Donnell Sefa, who he said, Do not insult my companions. Don't say anything bad about them. And I'll tell you why the reason for this hadith so that you'll understand insha Allah why he said it. He says poor why Allah, if one of you were to spend like the mountain of dirt in gold, it would not be equal to the mud or half a mud of gold that one of them has spent meaning that you know, a
handful. So the whole pole mount Mount Hood, you would give it in gold, it would not be good enough as what they would spend of a handful.
So you understand here the percentage, the mountains of gold that you would spend is worse than that something that is a handful given by the Sahaba of the prophets of Allah, Allah was Allah. Now the Prophet was saying this to whom, or after commenting on what there was this verbal exchange, and tense exchange between harlot and Abdul Rahman, Ivanov, caledonianew Ali, Abdul Rahman of North subdominant of no alpha is an early very early Sahabi. Right. Khalid accepted Islam after the Davia so late now, you know, all the good things have had it done right and will do but in that exchange carded got, you know, upset with Abdul Rahman he's, and he's saying something to the effect of you
guys think you're better than us because you've accepted Islam before us. Right. So he upset Abdul Rahman because of it. So that's based on that. Prophet solipsism Do not
insult my companions. He's talking to Khalid Abdul Rahman and both of them are Sahaba. It says don't Jana, you Yeah, Khalid, right. If you were to spend something like that mountain of gold, like
likelihood would not equal what Abdurrahman wife would give. That is just simply a handful of his if handed cannot reach the level of Abdurrahman, Abner oath, what do you think about those who come after? Yeah. And how did you know what had it did? Right? And, you know, the battles in Iraq and the Battle of his Shambo, and there's nothing that we can do, right, that can come close to anything that Khaled has done. Right? Any sort of had it cannot reach the level of I don't know of anyone after should despair of the fact that he could be anything close to any companion of Muhammad Ali salatu salam so this generation cannot be reproduced. Once it's gone, it's sealed. Done. And the
prophets Allah Sillim notes that notes that so he said, you know, Amana to the US hobby for either the hub to utter us Hobbema you I don't he says I'm a security and safety for my companions, when I go my companions or receive what is coming to them. What as hobby emulator only Almighty and my companions are a safety and security for my ummah, when they leave, my OMA will get what is coming them. So even the Sahaba were safety for the Ummah, or Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam is a completely unique. So once the Sahaba has gone, that generation, the bet next best generation or the generation of a tab, your own the followers,
then the third generation, the generation of tabulator, bear in those who follow the followers 123. Now, unlike the Sahaba, there could be a person in the third generation better than the person in the second generation. Okay, because there's nothing to prevent that. But in totality, the second is better than the third. Right? And once you move away from the third, you see the abundance and the spread of Buddha's, and then fighting and disintegration and friction and all of this, but the best is one and two and three, right? And there's a hadith SubhanAllah. So it's very interesting. He said, The Prophet salallahu Salam, he says, My OMA or a group of my OMA will go and jihad. And the
people will ask them, do you still have do you have companions of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and they say yes. And so that line will be opened, then another will go into jihad. And they will say, do you have companions of the companions of Muhammad Salah you said and they say yes, the line will be open. And then another group will go into Jihad and they say, do you have companions of the companions of the companions of Muhammad salallahu Salam, they say yes, and the line will be open. So the scholars will tell you he says note, most of the lens of Islam what time did it open it with the those three, there was during the time of the Sahaba book, look at it. From the time of the
Sahaba Tabby intubated wa in most of the expansion
happened then. And then very modest expansion after, which tells you what fuels it is stuck on Iman. Right.
And it's it's an extension of the seeds that were planted by Muhammad Ali solidus. Right, because he planted that and see how far it took him. And then when we lost this, of course, we couldn't continue after.
Last thing in Sharla, though I mentioned is
it although he doesn't talk about it, he says what but but it's a principle and it's important principle. And him SOQL Amercia, Davina Sahaba, to Rasulullah Ali's Salatu was set up so that you refrain from engaging or indulging into the arguments and the disputes that happened between the Sahaba or the Allah unknown. And this is that is also a principle. Now, why is that a principle? A person could hear this and say, Well, do we have anything to hide? So that's we're saying, people don't talk about it. And let's hide it because we're afraid is is no, that's really not the case. But it's about whether there is a need for you to indulge in it or not, whether you have the right
intention and disposition for it or not, and whether you have the right tools for it or not. Otherwise, it'd be a fitna for you. But if you have all three, then by all means, go ahead and learn as much as you can about it. But you must know that you have all three. So what are the three that we're talking about? Do you need to know this or not? So a person says, I don't need to this is why you want to learn about this. Just respect the Sahaba as they are, know that they are seekers of the Hereafter not of the dunya. And if some of them makes mistakes, and they by the way, they must make mistakes, right? Why? Because there were human beings, human beings, what do you think? What do they
they're not prophets of Allah as we did it, and even even even Subhan Allah, even the prophets of Allah, Allah hemos salatu salam doesn't Allah as Allah tells you in the Quran, that he corrected this prophet, he corrected that prophet does, he does not tell you about this. And he says, Don't say this, don't do that, to the prophets of Allah. So you think someone who's not a prophet of Allah is going to be an angel that commit no mistake at all. But they try their best, and they do each jihad. And when they decide, either they're right, Allah rewards them twice for it, or they are wrong, Allah rewards them once for it, but we assume good intentions, because we know what these
people are. So if you come with that disposition, without understanding, and second, there is a need for you to understand this because you say I want to defend Islam. And those who attack the Sahaba, or I have some doubts that have been comes to my mind, I need really to clarify this matter. We say, by all means, learn about this. And the third thing is understand how to pursue this by understand that there have been fabricated reports about the Sahaba and about the times of fitna to distinguish between right and wrong reports. Right. So you can go for instance, to a history, like the history of slavery, or somebody quotes, it's a history of slavery, and say, since it's their only that means
that I did this, or I did not do that, or this or that. The history of slavery collects everything. The good and the bad about his mission wasn't what I'm going to collect. So he,
he's just gonna collect history, and he presents the chain. So if you're a scholar, or you cannot be dependent on a scholar who can distinguish between the different reports, then you go ahead and read, otherwise, you'll be lost. So you need a guide. And that guide will tell you that knowing that Huawei did not betray the OMA and wow, he was so happy and honored. Sahabi. And yes, there was a disagreement between him and Alia or the Allah I knew. But if you understand the essence of that disagreement, it's not going to shock you. It's just going to tell you that they really saw things very differently. And then the fitna happened. So how do you not be tolerated and just very briefly,
so that you understand because some people Subhanallah they imagine why we are the Allahu Anhu. And you have to make it a point of when you say more how you say it all the Allahu Anhu just to plant in people's head, that you are talking about us a hobby. The things that we talked about just the Sahaba apply to more IWEA is my I didn't isn't just a person who just saw why we only Allah, I knew he was among Quetta, but to know who the scribes who have written the revelation of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and he was appointed to the position of the governor of a sham by rumor, you know, how strict Omar is and his appointees and how he reviews them. So if he did not see and he did
not know that any rumor
removed sat across from his Governor again, as as the governor said, Do not be Waqas remove them as a government. Besides lobby workers had trouble or people had trouble raise trouble about him. So he removed him sad. Right, but he did not remove
Why are we here to tell you something? Right? So what happened between it and while we are all the Allahu Anhu is a misunderstanding, Ali goddess became a Khalifa after the killing of Ruth man. And you have to imagine the shock of the killing of Athena, the death of the Khalifa right the killing of a Khalifa. So now he becomes the Khalifa. And now he wants just kind of to stabilize that man's area. And he knows that people don't listen to him. In his army, right? People do not really listen to him, he will command but if he commands them things that they don't want to do it they are rebels within the Army, he can't get rid of them. So it hasn't been I've been able to stabilize the area
yet. While you're on the other hand, he says I am What are you dealing with? Man? I'm the one who should seek their retribution for Earth man, I'm his relative. And the wife of Earth man or the Allah Hannah sent the commies of Earth man, the clothing of us, man blood soaked to Maui. Right? You understand? The blood soaked? And if tomorrow, tomorrow, you get retribution for the killing of the Earth man.
So what I was saying, hand me over the killers of Earthman. If you do this, I'll give you a Yeah. So you understand the agitation of the people of a sham? Is because to them is what? You have the killers in your army.
This word they're saying? And it's true, actually. But the eliquids? Like, what do you what do you want to do? They belong to tribes? If he catches this person, this person that person executes what does he risk, rebellion and revolutions? So I can't reach them? No. So and he was saying what you submit to My Wilaya we become strong, I go after them. While you're saying what no, we go after him first. That's that's the clash. There is no authentic report that now we have said, I'm the Khalifa, or I want to be the Khalifa CLI.
Or there was deception on their part, or that unbeknown to us was a liar. This is not true. They're more honorable than that. more honorable than that. Right? Or that, you know,
that came comes later, right? I'm digressing. But why not digress? That they have no idea, right? There's either I'm sorry, not say that he has he commanded the killing of Al Hussein and cut his head and brought to you know, the wives or the daughters of an Husayn an adult bait and paraded them in a sham and exhibited the head of her saying, that's a complete fabrication. Because why, if you would really also want to understand that basically, on a sociological level, you see it is from what tribe Quraysh. Right. You will not do this to another Karachi. There's no honor in it. We're not talking about European
care royal families that you used to betray each other. This is this is a dishonor, if Acorah, she will take another kurayoshi like that and do that to him or to his family or to his wives, is a dishonor that will follow him to the rest of his life. They will never do this another coalition as an Arab, let alone Muslim.
But these are exaggerations in history and people when they hear that they begin to believe Oh, I will look at this this to Ali Omar did this to Fatima he kicked her door and he knows she was pregnant and she miscarried because of it, complete fabrications.
But they will come to you with these trying to kind of fuel hatred in your heart against Abu Bakr and Omar to champion Al Bayt not understanding that that division between this and that is fabricated, is fabricated, and that Allah will bait the family of the prophets, Allah Salam, the married from the Sahaba and the sahaba. But by the way, I would bet of Sahaba as well, by the way, right, that distinction is kind of nonsensical. But anyway, they married from each other, and they called each other like El bait and this is, you know, kind of supported with documents, genealogies, jafarzadeh, and what have you did have Abu Bakr and Omar and you know, as the name of their
children. So, I know, you know, story is stories of betrayal and deceit are fascinating, right? But reality is different, right? So if you want to learn about these things you learn with the right tools. Otherwise, it's really sufficient for you to say, if there was a fitna, Allah azza wa jal had saved us from it. We're not in that fitna. And if it was not easy for them to find right and wrong while they were in it is not easy for us as well. We have the privilege of hindsight, or we know what happened. So you can go back and say, Oh, you shouldn't have done this. Right. But while it was happening, you would not have known if someone as intelligent as Talhah. And
Ally you would not be tolerated. And then you had Hussein and you had more our we and N. They couldn't figure it out. You'd not be able to figure it
Oh, and just also in final insha Allah to add to that just to understand kind of the virtue of what we are the Allahu Anhu. They said that before, before he became a Khalifa that a sham he was governor if I'm not mistaken for 20 years
for about 20 years to get pointed by Omar and then into through the Khilafah with man so about 20 years. Then after Ali, one of the Allah Allah was killed by the Hawaii bridge, the falafel goes to at Hudson.
Will the Allahu Anhu the son of Ali would not be tolerated Radi Allahu Anhu he lasts six months. And then he gives the hill Arthur willingly to wow we are the Allahu Anhu and now everybody now had joined in that by tomorrow we are the Allahu Anhu and what are we a keeps the peace for an extra 20 years.
Then you not there is no breakaway province. There is no army fighting within Islam after a period of fitna, okay and disjointed armies and then ideas I would have for a person to come. And for 20 years has this benign control. He was not repressive. Has this benign control over the entire Muslim land. It tells you what type of leader he was. Right? And that's why when when some people say
Omar Abdul Aziz is currently so qualified Rashidi. He's is the fifth of the Rightly Guided caliphs, some saying that Omar Abdulaziz is the fifth of the Rightly Guided caliphs, others object and they say Why are you bypassing why are we here? Because who is better? Why are we or Omar Abdulaziz Maha
Sahabi Right, right. So, inshallah that's what I have insha Allah for us today and there might be some kind of loose ends in sha Allah I will try to
bring together in sha Allah next time. So let me know in sha Allah if you have questions, yeah.
The wants to
so they depict the faces of Omar Amin.
Oh, okay. Okay. Okay. Okay, so there's an actor portraying Omar. No, I don't recommend that. I don't recommend that. Because if there's an early photo that I really know, I've read where they've said that this is not allowed. I know that people will say we get to know them better and this and that. But you know, you could do this by reading and you could do this by listening to lectures, but when you start portraying, especially the top companions of the prophets, Allah, Allah was in them like that, you lose, you lose respect for them, because that same actor who had betrayed them has betrayed something else before. And you begin to associate always the sayings of Omar and the
persona of Omar with that particular actor, and it's hard to dislodge after. So I will love Adam ultimately, there's more harm than benefit in it. And there's other ways of doing this one lower Adam, and by I mean, and you know, it is that SEC that we talked about, I'm just eager not to gonna name names as much as it can. But it is that sect that we talked about that opposes the Sahaba it is one that betrays the prophets of Allah Xeljanz so you feel that they have movies about Yusuf and movies about a YouTube and movies about that and they have no qualms about portraying the prophets of Allah and a salad so you see where it goes, right? Because if you break that barrier, the next
barrier is this and that. So yeah, we'll say Inshallah, just avoid it. And I think I know the one you were talking about, avoid it in sha Allah and just read and listen, I think inshallah that is sufficient inshallah.
There's a brother that totally
Most people mentioned
but what you have listed is three. So where is that? And then we include the two that are included in the slide in the presentation to show so how do we reconcile Okay, okay, so we're talking about the whole affair of the eyes. We know Bakr and Omar and Earth man and ally. Were as what are you mentioned here? Are the Allah Rahman Al Rahim Allah is mentioned that we say that the best after the prophet is Abu Bakr Omar with man and we pause. So it's a good question because what you noted is that why did he not say an ally? Right? As the fourth best person after the prophets of Allah it was salam. Because Ahmed Rahim Allah here he was kind of strictly following the report that he had come
from ignore Omar. So Omar is saying by consensus, we're saying Abu Bakr, Omar and Earthman and then we stop. So Mohammed wanted to follow exactly the same thing and saying, as in Omar, one, two and three, I'll stop and
So as for the rest, I'm not going to distinguish between them. I'll say all of them are good. All of them are great. All of them are Khalifa and Ima, but he's not venturing to say and the best is Eddie. But there are other
let's say scholars and other opinions and eventually the consensus has evolved to say that the fourth is not to be tolerated.
So among the Sunnah, Wal jamaa or you could say you could say Abubaker, Amara Northman and stop. But eventually the consensus came to be a buck or Omar and Ruth, man and ally, the same order that they had in their field alpha is the same order that they have in their virtue 123 and four, right. And something we didn't didn't mention, but it kind of reminded me of is that
see how Allah azza wa jal physically, physically manifests what had been in reality, the companionship of Abu Bakr and Omar, because where are they buried?
Beside the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Can There's wisdom in that? Because we're not even not we thought that by the way, he was saying that.
He said when Omar was about index Kana on his deathbed, and he said, he was saying to him, there was no one alive that I would wish to meet Allah azza wa jal with his deeds than you. All right. And I was always hoping that you would follow your two companions, you will join them, because I would often often hear of the Prophet came in Abu Bakr and Omar, the Prophet came and Al Bakr and Omar. So Abu Bakr and Omar maybe that'll emphasize it next time, Abu Bakr and Omar are a very different category than the rest of the Sahaba by the way, right? Like his we said the Sahaba are unique. So when you talk about Uber and Omar their unique compared to the rest of the Sahaba, because the
prophets Ali Salam would say, he said in an Hadith follow those who are after me Abu Bakr and Omar,
like they had an excellence to them. So because they're the closest companions to him while he was alive, what is very interesting is that when they die also, they keep that companionship and where they buried, there is a very Subhan Allah this is the wisdom of Allah as though Jen, the How can you only want to say mysterious or miraculous that it is that it has connections to it? And sometimes things in your life have connections like that because of something you did or said something else happens, right? So
quickly hear question is celebrating the night of the 27th of Rajab, is it allowed? There is no evidence. I don't know what the night of the 27th of Rajab is called anybody knows. They have a no it's not one mirage. Is that the surah? Okay, please, Zack Allah here. So. So we don't know. By the way, when Alyssa and and Mirage took place? We don't know. Okay, so you don't have to take my word for it. Go back to the books of Sierra like the books like good books of Sierra and see, when do they sell Israel and in Mirage is, and you will find out that first. They don't agree on the day. They don't agree on the month, and they don't agree about upon the year. They don't even know the
year. And what does that tell you? And if the Sahaba did not keep the day and could have been, they could have kept it easily, or the month or the year means that what was not important otherwise, where they would have kept it? So if they did not consider it important? Why are you trying to dig deeper and find out when it happened? It happened? That's enough. So we don't know what happened on the 27th. Right. So if it's not actual setup, if it's not listed on Mirage, then what are you celebrating? And if
you wanted to celebrate it, you would say simply right, based on what we've said that the Prophet recommended,
and the evidence for that, know that the Sahaba do it have any evidence for it? No. So what are you trying to celebrate? So it's a regular day, and it's a regular night. So in sha Allah if you simply not not talking about you, whoever's asked the question, are we if we, so if we really just spent our energy doing what we're supposed to do, we wouldn't have no time worrying about the 27th of Roger, right? If we just because you will be out of time. Okay, you will be out of energy, because of doing the things that you are supposed to do. So invest in sha Allah in all the days and in the days that Allah has it it has recommended, but in sha Allah I hope I've answered the question of the
sister the 27th of Raja has kind of no foundation yet.
