Oh Rama

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

Rama

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

Merci, merci.

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

Welcome Rama,

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

Rama.

00:00:12--> 00:00:18

In the month of Ramadan, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be blessed with a nightly visit

00:00:19--> 00:00:28

a nightly appointment with Angel Jibreel who would mutually study with him the Quran imagine Subhan Allah and I mean what a gathering

00:00:29--> 00:00:41

and describing this and its effects on the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the companion Abdullah hypnobirth he said something remarkable. He said canon Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Adroid a nurse.

00:00:42--> 00:01:23

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of all people. What can Adroid Amaya Kunal Fiera, Madonna Hina, Allahu Jibreel, and the most generous he would be was in the month of Ramadan when Jabril would meet him.

00:01:23--> 00:02:03

doing good. Then the blowing wind Subhan Allah Hey, Naveen, what is the point of mentioning this narration take note of this. The greater the dosage of Quran in the life of a person, the greater the dosage of worship should be. That's what we saw with the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah, he was saying them you can see the more he learned, the more he did. Our era is one of information, information overload. Rather, it's not just a weekly Friday sermon at Hamdulillah that we're blessed with, or regular study circles in the mosque or weekend courses, but even the internet that has completely removed every limitation on knowledge acquisition. Therefore, there must be a reoccurring

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

point in our lives.

00:02:06--> 00:02:27

Where we pause, and we ask the question, my knowledge is increasing. My knowledge is certainly growing. But is it causing me to grow? I've learned something new today. What next? These are the questions that will cause our knowledge to become an argument for us on the Day of Judgment,

00:02:28--> 00:02:34

on a day when knowledge will be an argument against so many people.

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

Abdullah Allah Itami me, he said amazing words take note of this he said

men OTF Minella AMI na u key for Holly Yukon ally Hakuna oto Amon Yun Falco, he said whoever gains knowledge

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

that does not cause him to cry, then such a person has not gained beneficial knowledge.

00:03:03--> 00:03:47

He said this is because Allah subhanho wa Taala set in the Quran, in description of the scholars may Allah make you and I from among them, he said in description of the scholars in the livina autonomia cobbly He Utila Allah him yeah here rune and in accordance with Jada he said to those who are given knowledge before it, when it is recited to them they fall upon their faces in frustration, why aku Luna? Suba Hannah Rabina in Kenya Robina lemma formula, and they say Glory be to Allah. Truly, the promise of our Lord must be fulfilled Allah said warriorship ronelle In cornea, Bakun. Why is he doing kashua And they fall up on their faces weeping, and the Quran increases them in humble

00:03:47--> 00:03:57

submission. This is the fruit of knowledge. Sometimes you learn something and you feel compelled just to put your face on the floor in glorification of Allah Almighty that went above.

00:03:58--> 00:04:38

Do you feel that when you learn something new Imam Muhammad he said mercapto Hadith and I didn't ever use all Allahu alayhi wa sallam in LA vaca Danny to be here. There isn't any Hadith that I had written or taken note of, except that I first endeavor to apply its teaching, see why Allah blessed him and his knowledge we still singing in his praise today. I applied every Hadith that I documented. And by the way, unlike some of us, even I had memorized hundreds of 1000s of narrations and he made an effort to apply each and every one of them. He learned for example, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a cupping therapy done to him and that he gave the therapist one

00:04:38--> 00:04:57

dinar So Imam Muhammad had cupping therapy on him, and he gave the therapist one dinar amazing compliance. He learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hid in a cave for three days during his escape from Mecca to Medina. And so Imam Muhammad sat in a cave for three nights as well.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

A student of knowledge

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Want to spend a night with Imam Ahmed in his home. And so email plays for him a container of water in his room so that he can carry out his washing his water for his night prayer.

00:05:12--> 00:05:54

When it came to his room at federal time for the dawn prayer, he noticed that the water had not been moved from its place. So Imam Ahmed said to him Subhan Allah, Allah junonia globala Hema Allah, Allah who were don't mean Alain Subhanallah What is this? A student of knowledge, who doesn't pray at night? A student of knowledge Muhammad said who doesn't pray at night? In other words, how does that work? And that is why it hasn't been Masuri. He also said beautiful words take note of it cannot Raju either tolerable Alma let me yell. But Anuradha Alec Fe masari. He Well, he certainly he wired he was allowed to he was sure he was already he said in the past, when a person will start his

00:05:54--> 00:06:16

journey of knowledge, the effects of his learning would instantly start appearing upon his glances, His words, His hands, His prayer, his humility, his minimalism. Allahu Akbar, brothers and sisters, our knowledge is growing, but are our actions growing? So if you don't even know Aina he would also say that if I, if I'm spending my hours during the date foolishly,

00:06:17--> 00:06:27

and I'm spending my nights ignorantly Fair last night, we'll be having a lady at Lobo who, then what is the point of this knowledge that I'm writing? What is the point of it?

00:06:28--> 00:07:10

Beneficial knowledge causes a person to grow in Allah subhana wa danas eyes, but it causes a person's own eyes to see himself as something small in other words, beneficial knowledge causes a person to cry over his weak self and to long the journey that lies ahead to Allah. Beneficial knowledge pesters the believer persistently demanding its right of application till it is applied. Knowledge causes growth knowledge causes Love of Allah knowledge causes lowering of the gaze knowledge causes a tangible change in our lives.
