Called rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa early he was in further Bula ailing me for you both in adequately Muslim.

00:04:17--> 00:04:25

He says alayhi salatu salam, the seeking, seeking knowledge is an obligation on every Muslim

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

and that is an obligation that we often overlook.

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

We may know of some obligations,

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

but that actually seeking knowledge is an obligation not that only it's an obligation, but on every single Muslim

00:04:47--> 00:04:56

prompts us to ask ourselves where am I when it comes to this obligation? Because if I as an individual, every and each one of you

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

has to seek knowledge according to

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

Have a statement of Russell the likes of Allahu Allah Who early was sent them? Is that a concern? Is that something that we are fulfilling? Do we feel the need to do that?

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

Once so that we understand why.

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

Once the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was sitting in the midst of

00:05:23--> 00:05:42

somebody came in and they started praying, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was watching him, while the men are knowing that the Prophet was watching. So when the men finished, and again to see Sudan through a prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. The Prophet told him, it was Sunday for eating a golem to suddenly

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

go back and pray for you did not pray.

00:05:47--> 00:05:50

So the man went back and he redid his sada

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

and then came back to the Prophet alayhi salatu was Saddam and the Prophet says, again, if Jeff was suddenly in a column to suddenly go back and pray, you did not pray.

00:06:01--> 00:06:08

And then he went, and he did it a third time. And he came to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And the Prophet again said, go back and pray you did not pray.

00:06:10--> 00:06:20

And then the man confessed or prophet of Allah, I know knows what to do more than this. And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam started to teach him pray this way, and this way and that way.

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

That is, you can live a life

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

where you think you know how to pray, but you don't.

00:06:29--> 00:06:34

And if the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam were to see you he will tell you that was not asada.

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

And if you do not learn what it means, to perform, will do.

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

And to pray, you may spend your life not performing.

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

In another incident, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was sold

00:06:56--> 00:07:00

of what people did, when they were awake. They were traveling.

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

And one of them,

00:07:05--> 00:07:36

injured his head and had an open wound. And then when he slept, he had a wet dream. So when he woke up, he asked the people around him he said, Do you do any of them? Am I exempt? Can I do take him home instead of bathing because that's what you do. When you have a wet dream you're supposed to pay fully. But with his injury can I do to your mom, so they told him? No, we have by no exemption for you to do TM, no. You need to pay he did. He died

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

when they came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and told him about that he says

00:07:43--> 00:07:47

Allah he says they killed him May Allah kill them.

00:07:48--> 00:07:55

It is enough for the ignorant to heal their ignorance to asks it was enough for him to to tell your mom

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

there is if you do not know

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

what you do not know can kill someone.

00:08:03--> 00:08:08

And if not physically, it can kill your own Iman or the amount of people around you.

00:08:10--> 00:08:18

We have to know before we do anything for alumina hula ilaha illallah

00:08:20--> 00:08:37

Allah Azza tropicalia Salatu was Salam no Lena Halal Allah, then seek forgiveness for yourself and the believers. So now they might have said you must know before you do because if you do before you know you could corrupt more, you must know.

00:08:39--> 00:08:50

And this path of knowledge is a path of virtue because beginning with Muhammad Ali his Salatu was Salam. Allah told him what will rob be Zinnia Rima

00:08:51--> 00:08:56

say, Oh, my Robin increased me knowledge is speaking to whom?

00:08:57--> 00:09:06

To the one who knew Allah azza wa jal, the best Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. And yet he told him keep asking Allah to increase your knowledge.

00:09:07--> 00:09:19

And they say that Allah did not command His Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam to ask him for more access to knowledge, not more money, and not more power, but increasingly in knowledge.

00:09:21--> 00:09:48

And part of the draw of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam every single morning, which is thought of the car that all of us are supposed to it's recommended that we repeat. When you wake up, what do you say? Meaning between federal and sunrise Allahumma in the SLO Gigamon Sofia. What is simply what am LM with Bella? Allah I'm asking you for a beneficial knowledge

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

and halal provision or is an accepted deed.

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

That is as you are setting

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

your day

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

mentally physically, you're asking Allah azza wa jal give me in this day the following three, and what is the first thing that you ask Allah for beneficial knowledge? Give me beneficial knowledge. And then after that it comes with Halal

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

that can support me and my family and then accepted the things that please you your love.

00:10:25--> 00:10:34

So yes, we plan our day and we know exactly where we're going to go to work, or we will go to study. We have planned each set.

00:10:36--> 00:10:58

I'm gonna see this so I could graduate so I can get more money so I could be employed. So I would do all of this in the dunya. We've planned it very well. And we plan our meals very well. I'm going to eat this for breakfast and this for lunch and dinner and snacks in between, you know, more or less what are you going to be eating? We don't have no idea about knowledge or seeking it or a desire to seek it.

00:11:00--> 00:11:03

And you're living in a time where it is essential

00:11:04--> 00:11:15

to learn because of the many temptations that surround you and many doubts that surround you and the responsibilities that make it difficult to survive without

00:11:16--> 00:11:42

it could be possible for a person at the time of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam who was a nomad to come to the Prophet learn few things go bad and he could survive. But living in today's world, in a city like this in a world like this and you don't know your Islam and you don't know your email and you don't know what is halal, and what is haram and you're living with ignorance. How do you suppose you will survive? When you meet Allah azza wa jal?

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

Because Allah will ask you how did you send your life and how did you sent you youth and how did you spend your money?

00:11:51--> 00:11:59

And the type of knowledge that we're talking about is not rote memorization just as go ahead and memorize the Quran and that says, You're a

00:12:01--> 00:12:13

that's not it. We're in the Malay mocha shuffle. Why? Do you want to learn something that will increase you in love and fear of Allah xuejun In sha Allah Hamina Eva

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

is only those who have in her shell Allah azza wa jal

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

commenting on that, they've said that indeed what you consider to be knowledge and beneficial knowledge is what brings you closer to Allah azza wa jal

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

If you memorize an idea,

00:12:34--> 00:12:49

but it doesn't bring you closer to Allah as though did you have to reconsider what you were doing? If you read a hadith but they don't increase you in Hosea, what are you burning, but you want to learn the thing that moves your heart and moves your deer I Satir

00:12:50--> 00:12:55

and brings you closer to him subhanho wa Taala and away from the dunya and obsession with it.

00:12:57--> 00:13:14

Man Seneca even Yelton is Sophia Ilma. sal Allahu Allahu we'll be here buddy, you can either join, he says one, he said Ali Salatu was Salam, if you seek a path of knowledge, by that Allah who will ease you into paradise.

00:13:15--> 00:13:43

Whatever you do, whether it's a physical seeking, or virtual, or you sit in the Halacha, or you listen to something beneficial, that time that you send, for Allah azza wa jal will give you ease into Jana, because you are learning through it, of what Allah loves how to protect your own image, and how to protect your own Islam how to get into 10 and be saved from Johanna.

00:13:44--> 00:13:57

If somebody tells you, you're going to be interrogated, you're going to be questioned, you're going to be interviewed. And in that interview, they will ask you these specific questions. And if you either if you pass, you pass,

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

but if you fail well to you, if you fail,

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

whether it's for a job, or for admission,

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

but something more ugly, and something instrumental in your life.

00:14:14--> 00:14:15

said before if you if you're not

00:14:17--> 00:14:20

if it's instrumental, and pivotal, we'll study

00:14:22--> 00:14:23


00:14:24--> 00:14:27

in our grave, we will be asked

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

memorable gamma venum.

00:14:31--> 00:14:36

And you'll be asked, who was Muhammad Ali Assad was Sinha, what did you use? Do you still believe about him?

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

If you don't know these things, how will you answer that question?

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

And don't say I know it now.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

But I mean, really no one.

00:14:51--> 00:14:57

To really believe it. It's really livid. Because anyone who can ask you right now who's Allah you tell him

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

but when you panic

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

When you're in distress,

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

Who is Allah?

00:15:08--> 00:15:10

Is the dollar or Allah?

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

Who comes first?

00:15:14--> 00:15:26

Because that's the question you asked yourself. Because the right there, six feet under, you're not going to answer based on what you've memorized. You're going to answer based on what you've learned.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

And you cannot delete it if you don't know what it is.

00:15:31--> 00:15:36

So Allah is just going to ask us who is your Rob? And you will be alone.

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

There is no one to feed you the answer. There is no one to give you company. You will be alone.

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

Who is your rock?

00:15:47--> 00:15:58

If you don't learn it right now, Allah zodia Is this Allah zone it is the merciful what does that mean? Allah Allah is Allah dude, what is that mean? He's Allah for what is that mean?

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

And how do I relate to him? subhanho wa Taala through all of this.

00:16:04--> 00:16:19

If you want to know if you are seeking knowledge or not, consider the distance between you and the book of Allah azza wa jal because it's knowledge True Knowledge is from the Quran and Hadith from Medallia Salatu was, that is the essence of all knowledge.

00:16:21--> 00:16:40

Where are you from the book of Allah azza wa jal, where are you from the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam? And if the requests for that in his daily, where are you, when it comes to daily intake of knowledge? Just like do you feed your body? Do you feed your soul and do you feed your mind?

00:16:42--> 00:16:52

Once the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was he was sitting in the midst of he goes to the people on the sofa, and the people of the sofa would be sitting like the people all the way in the back, but there will be covered to them.

00:16:54--> 00:17:03

And these were, the four of them will have God poor immigrants, meaning there's no other shelter that they have except the back of the message. That's it.

00:17:05--> 00:17:14

And he says to them are you can be a boy and you have to be able to hang out in the creases, who among you would like to go to Bhutan or allottee to valleys in Medina

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

and get from them to camels with big humps.

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

Halal means

00:17:21--> 00:17:58

to him Halal without any burden attached to them, meaning easily you go you grab two healthy big camels and you come back with them. And you do that every single day. Which one among you would you like to do this. And remember, they are poor. So prophet to Allah, all of us have looked at. He says, If any one of you goes to the masjid and he learns to is from the book of Allah as though didn't, that would be better for him to have those two counts. And he gets the he learns three is it's better than three camels and four is better than four camels. And whatever number of is you learn are better than the number of camels acquired.

00:18:01--> 00:18:33

If one asks you if you could go to such and such place, and you can grab $2,000 easily and you can come back home and you can do that every single day. Would you love that? You'd say definitely I would love this. But Muhammad Ali in Salatu Salam is telling you what is going to benefit you in the dunya. And in the Euro is something much simpler than that. Which is if you just learn the book of Allah azza wa jal, that's better than 1002 1005 1000. It's available to every single person, because not all of us can be rich in the dunya. But all of us can be rich in the Afia.

00:18:35--> 00:18:39

All of us can learn right now what is headed and what is haram.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

If you're gonna get married,

00:18:46--> 00:19:10

you must know your rights and responsibilities before you get married, you must learn them. And it's an obligation on you to do that before you get married. A lot of the conflicts that you see that end up in divorces, because people don't understand what it means to marry somebody else, what I owe them and what they owe me, but they get into this marriage blindly.

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

And they leave it blank.

00:19:13--> 00:19:42

When you decide to have a child, you know that it's an obligation on you to know how to raise that child, what is the highest rights are? What do you shoot what he should avoid? What is the right and what is wrong? What is poisonous outside so that you protect them from all of that it's an obligation on you, as his caretaker to hold to do all of this. But we have children and don't know how to take care of them and we don't study and we don't read and we don't ask and we don't inquire

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

yet. It's an obligation on you to learn all of that when you open a business. It's an obligation on you once you open that business to no halal and haram transactions in detail, so that you know what to avoid and what to do and you send when you don't learn any of that.

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

in whatever field in life, whatever you are doing, it's an obligation on you to learn it because if you don't, you're going to commit to haram that Allah hates. And the path of knowledge is available, but few who seek it.

00:20:16--> 00:20:29

Do it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal do it for the sake of Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. He said Ali Salatu was Salam, what he says the prophets and the messengers did not leave gold and silver behind.

00:20:30--> 00:20:35

But they left knowledge. That is their inheritance summit Africa.

00:20:36--> 00:20:40

If you acquire it, you acquire a lot of good fortune.

00:20:41--> 00:20:58

Imagine Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam, what does he leave behind? The best of the best, and the best of the best is inheritance. If he said this, and he says that he acted this way, and he didn't act that way. And the book of Allah azza wa jal, he said,

00:20:59--> 00:21:26

golden silver, they don't last but this thing lasts. And he said that he saw that there was sit down and the UD de la will be higher up, up to 50 is Allah wants the best for someone, he gives him understanding in faith, faith in this religion. And the opposite is true. If Allah does not want the best for someone, he does not give them understanding in the faith.

00:21:27--> 00:22:06

So if you want Allah Allah Xeloda to love you and for you to love him, for you to be able to withstand the many temptations around you. Doubt circulating about Islam, the existence of Allah, the authenticity of the Quran, things that you're supposed to know but also you're supposed to teach your children all of these doubts circulating within reach out to them also the worldly physical temptations this Haram is easy to get that Haram is easy to get. How will you have the Eman the fortitude to say no to all of this, and you fail every day to feed your iman and to feed you knowledge?

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

And don't say please memorize the Quran.

00:22:13--> 00:22:25

And that is it. Because the question that I will ask you is do you know what Allah is saying? After now you've memorized? Do you know what the meaning of this idea is? And that i is, if not, and you still have a long way to go.

00:22:27--> 00:22:46

And don't say graduated from an Islamic University. They say that if you do not learn every single day, even if you've graduated and specialized in an Islamic Institute, if you do not learn every single day, look to me, you will come to become an average person after three years, you're gonna forget all of that.

00:22:48--> 00:22:52

If you do not learn it, you're going to lose it and if you don't apply it, you also are going to lose it.

00:22:54--> 00:23:19

So when I'm discussing or talking about this, I'm not excluding any single person who listens to this. Allah azza wa jal wants every one of us to seek knowledge and to know right from wrong. So we have to accept that responsibility and think about ways that can increase his knowledge. May Allah is the Jamaica's among those people, and not among the ignorant a whole lot only has I was a little late it went up on.

00:23:37--> 00:23:46

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen hum that Kathy rompa uban Oh, God, I can see he will suddenly we'll send him another Sunni hemo Hamina. While early he was suffering, he was silom.

00:23:47--> 00:23:53

Imagine after your death and you need every single person to pray for you.

00:23:55--> 00:24:00

And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said among the things that never expire.

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

Anyone who will differ will be a knowledge that people find beneficial after your passing.

00:24:08--> 00:24:11

And you become you can become a partner in that when you teach the truth.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

When you spread this knowledge, when you teach it to your kids, you can become a part of them.

00:24:20--> 00:24:31

But also you said earlier slot was said on what in an argument as a whole Memphis summer where the woman fell out of the hotel, he turned rifugio filmer he says the scholar the person who acquires that knowledge.

00:24:32--> 00:24:39

He says everybody in the heavens and everybody on Earth, even the fish in the sea make so far with that person's

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

imagine the honor.

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

Imagine the honor if you actually are seeking knowledge and coming to Juma with that intention qualifies. Coming through June I will be intentional. I'm not just gonna fulfill an obligation and then just scurry back to whatever I was going to do. No, I'm actually coming here to Vernes

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

I'm thinking that helps to can say. So when you're coming you can imagine the angels of Allah as odd as the Hadid seats, lowering their wings to you,

00:25:11--> 00:25:29

out of gratitude, and happiness with what you're doing, if you're really seeking knowledge, to have an angel of Allah, as though did lower his wings for you is an honor. But that's the honor of knowledge because Allah has Zoda lifts you up, whenever you know. And wherever you know.

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

So the question is, how do we do this?

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

First of all, make it an intention.

00:25:39--> 00:25:46

That I do want it because otherwise, our iman could sink, and we could fall victim

00:25:47--> 00:26:13

to all the temptations around us to ignorance to worshipping Allah as Odin maybe for many years and having that worship be disqualified, because it turns out that it was a bit odd, we did not bother to understand the difference between Sunni or Buddha, or it has already be the case that I was committing *can Allah azza wa jal throughout my life, I didn't bother to learn the difference between to heat and ship was the excuse them,

00:26:14--> 00:26:18

you have to learn. So first of all,

00:26:19--> 00:26:42

I tend to have lockers attend the study circles, see every single opportunity you have physically and online to learn. Invest, because that's an investment for the app ever before it's an investment in the dunya. If something is free, or even if you have to pay for it, pay for it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, but then wake up and start thinking to yourself, I take courses I take

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

certificates to improve myself worldly. Why not religiously.

00:26:52--> 00:27:37

So seek those opportunities and attend and be in the houses of Allah azza wa jal for those opportunities, or virtually seek them online. But a word of caution. Not every offering is a wholesome offering, you must know who is teaching you before you learn from them. If you're in doubt, you ask. But you don't go online and listen to every video. And to Bible looks like a shake every small snippet, you absorb it and you say this is right, just because somebody who looks right is saying, you must have a filter, and you must be smart enough for that filter to make sense. If that person is an unknown, whatever he is saying is unknown, until you could verify that he's

00:27:37--> 00:27:46

reliable, only then should you listen to them. But if you open your heart to every single doubt of misunderstanding, whatever it comes in, may never leave.
