What is said regarding the deeds of faith? Very good.
prophets have a long way to send them said they really consists of more than 60 branches that is smart. And this term, Tauruses are the real promises which are to be taken to.
is a part of now this chapter deals with things or stuff related to a man
Mr. Bahari wanted to tell us through this chapter, how to respond to different sects and cults in Islam.
And how is that if we look at two big sects in Islam, who have affected it negatively throughout time,
and they came quite early, we will find that we have an Hawaii bridge.
And we have a lot more gee
Their main attributes or characteristics is that they say any Muslim who commits a major sin is a Kaffir. And he is in Hellfire for eternity.
So if you drink wine, if you fall naked, if you steal, if you even lie,
this is a major sin, your Catherine.
All of your deeds are void.
And of course, they add to that the killing of Muslims going against the Muslim rulers and so many other things. On the other side,
we have the far extreme, who say that you are a Muslim, despite anything you do, as long as you have the man in your heart.
if you commit adultery, if you commit any sin on Earth, other than associating others with a law, you're still a Muslim. Not only that, your belief
is as strong as the belief of Abu Bakr Omar, Othman.
Yes, this why both of them made the same mistake. Although they are far extreme to each other. They share the same concept wrong understanding of a man.
They all believe that a man
is one single entity that cannot be reduced or increased. So the average said, you're a believer. The moment you commit a major sin, your belief is gone. Tell us you're a Catholic.
While the more Jesus said a man is a whole, like the courage. It's one unit, no matter what you do, it does not affect it.
It cannot be increased and this is why they used to say
that my Eman is the same as the amount of jabril and Mika.
There is no difference.
While Ebner Avi malayaka, one of the tambourine. He said, I met 30 of the prophets, companions, Allianz Salatu, salam, and none of them used to say my Eman is equivalent to a man of jabril. And Mika
so al Bukhari with his knowledge
comes to us. And this is the best way of Dawa.
I could spend hours here just speaking and talking and lecturing.
And there is no benefit out of it. While if I say one Hadeeth all of you will believe through. This is the best form of Dawa Allah, Allah. Allah Rasool people would immediately accept and relate because we're Muslims. But when we keep on just, you know, giving, talk and talk and talk and talk, without relating you to the Hadith without relating
Due to the evidence This is the way of what Buhari he doesn't speak a lot. He just gives you the howdy he tells you in the beginning this is my understanding of it and you you go to the White House it's over. So now we come to the Hadith the Prophet says are a source of Surah Al de mano build your own was it two in a short while higher oh sure about one minute he man my translation to that is
I don't know why the line is cutting maybe the battery or
battery okay my battery or the
so the Prophet says Allah is salatu wa sallam Eman is 60 plus branches and bashfulness is a branch of Eman. This is my translation of the Hadith. Now the extra is from the translator. So understand it in this way. When we look at the headings and we understand that a man is composed of branches and divisions This means that if I attained 60% then I'm still men but lacking 40% now this refers to it is the battery What do
I need batteries then
need need batteries and
transmission What should I do then?
Okay, give it a try.
Maybe so that the reception would be higher.
Anyhow, so a man is composed of three main components your belief, very essential, and there are a number of a badass email. Hi, Evan hedger, may Allah have mercy on him, stated, in fact, Halle Berry is that the deeds of the heart includes your aqeedah your intention, there are 24 branches. So he's pacifying the 60 plus branches is is there a 24 branches related to the deeds of the heart? And there are seven branches related to what you say verbally. And there are 38 branches to the deeds that we do by our bodies. This is his classification. That is it an unnecessarily true No, but we know that the vast majority of it is so when when we say that there are 60 plus branches of women,
such as one
I'm asking you
Shahada else to
whenever you see the Hadith, man can you mean ob la he will yo mill
failure Paul, hi, Ron
Smith, whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment must say good or refrain, keep silent to McKenna Yo, Bella, falou cream bifa you should honor your guests.
And you keep on let me know. I had no comb, you will not believe until you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. All of these Hadees mean that these are the branches of women and there's so many of them.
Hello limra It took me no Billa he will Yo man. It is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah on the day of judgment to travel without a Muslim Hadith. So this is also part of the branch of the man which means if you manage to achieve all these branches of Eman, then you are a full fledged movement.
If you fail, you're a Muslim.
And you're a movement but you have discrepancies that you have to fix. And this is why it is essential for us to understand the meaning of a man because I can see someone who is a government or
and he lies and he betrays, and he steals and he embezzles and he does all his genius and bad things. But he's still What?
He sees a Muslim. What do we think of him? The vast majority would think he's a cover. Why he made so many sins. He did many wrongdoings, so I will take him out of the fold of Islam. Wait, be careful, this is the doing of the average. While you go to him and ask him, he said, I'm a believer. I'm a Muslim.
I can do anything because I have a man in my heart. Now you're following the Buddha.
So you the best way is the way of the seller. The best way is the way of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam where we can understand and relate to his religion.
Number three, a Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with the sun and hands. Very good Abdullah. I'm okay love. The Prophet
said a Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with a sung and hands. And the mohajir is the one who gives up abandons all one of law has forbidden, okay, this hadith defines a Muslim. So part of a man is you have to be a Muslim. So what is Islam? We spoke about the pillars.
Is that Islam alone? No, it tells us Don't be confused. In principle, what appears to the Muslims There are five pillars we've mentioned it and hydrated and aroma, which took us the first period of this session
Islam is a number of different things as well. Essentially, that a proper real Muslim has to do what is in that Hadith. Islam comes from the word submission is Islam to surrender your will to allies the origin it also comes from Sam which is peace. So, a Muslim who does not transmit peace to others especially and specifically to
Muslims and this is not does the pointer have a laser beam whatever.
So, I can burn this
I always wanted one like this. So, I cannot
they told me I have to stay here because beyond that elburn
is it intended only for Muslims? So one says okay, a Muslim is the one who avoids harming only Muslims but cafe I can step on them.
I can take their money, no, be careful. This is given as a scholar say as
the majority, but it does not exclude non Muslims, even the non Muslims you have to refrain from harming or
doing things bad to them. So a proper Muslim is the one who does not harm others and the means of harming others, either verbally or through actions.
The one in your heart is between you and Allah azza wa jal.
Can I harm people with my heart?
Maybe, yes, such as invade. If I'm envious, and I envy people who really doesn't deserve this beautiful car, he has his shame. He shouldn't then or give him an evil eye. All of a sudden he's having an accident. This is how long although I did not say anything, but it's in my heart, hatred, grudges. All of these negative feelings are harmful but what concerns the Muslims most is what you say and what you do. So
what harm can I give people with my tongue
I can burn buildings. With my tongue, I can destroy marriages. I can cause enmity, I can make wars between countries by a single word. This tongue has great weight. With this dunk, you can enter Paradise by saying law, either a llama
and with it, you can enter hell by saying the word of blasphemy. With it, I can get married.
When I say to the father of the girl, when he says, I give you my daughter in marriage, I say I accept. And I can separate from my wife. When I say to her, I divorce you. One word, does the job. So the Prophet is telling us la salatu salam in order for you to be a true, real practicing Muslim, to fulfill your Islam to reach the highest levels of Eman. You must refrain from swearing at people cursing them, backbiting them, causing the NEMA between them lying breaking your promises, all the things that are done with your tongue when you talk and this is why the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
When teaching were either in the German, and he told him you have to do jihad, you have to do prayer, you have to do this, you have to do that. At the conclusion. He said, Shall I tell you something? That some summarizes all the previous should? Yes, of course, said refrain. This and the Prophet held his tongue.
Stop this from doing harm. So I said, Oh prophet of Allah. Are we accountable for what we say? Because we think that chit chatting is,
is okay, no, there's no sin in it. We just sit for six, seven hours talking about people backbiting, what's the problem? In Arabic, we call it al Kalam. mallia jermuk. jermuk is the customs you pay when you get imports from abroad? It's the taxes you pay. So we have a saying in Arabic that speech has no taxes. You can speak as much as you do nowadays. Yes, you do. They will take they'll put you in jail if you speak something bad. So that's why we always reframe. So the Prophet said alayhi salatu salam
felt the heat.
The Prophet said la salatu salam, ala mukai Ahmad, may Allah make your mother lose you? And this is not intended literally.
A prophet is not saying may you die. This is something that is said in Arabic. And it's not intended, may Allah make your mother lose you and make you die, and she loses you? What throws people on the faces in Hellfire except what they say? is very, very dangerous thing to do. And
we have so many things about that. But I think that we do not have time. So we move on to the hands.
Is it literally the hands? Or your actions? No. What is meant is your actions. So in Islam, anything you do, or act, whether you do it by hands, or by your feet, or by your gesture, someone is telling me
share, do you know share so and so and I say
this is action.
It's sufficient, I don't have to do anything. Mother, ha ha may Allah be pleased with her. The Prophet was talking to her and saying Sophia, which his other wife, who was very beautiful. She was Jewish and became Muslim. So he was mentioning her name out of jealousy.
I just said, Oh, Prophet of Allah, Sophia.
Because she was short.
She just did this. This is action or not. This is action. The Prophet said that is awesome. You have said a word. If it were to be mixed with the oceans, it would have spoiled it.
Only this this gesture.
And how many times do we make gestures with our hands?
The scholars say that if someone was mentioned, and you just did this with your hand, this is Reba.
If someone says, Do you know this that yeah. So and so he's a great scholar of Islam, he said
This is Riba by itself. So
it is not only your hands, any act of transgression,
you do would count as not fulfilling your true Islam.
So, you beat people, you take their money, you transgress against their property, you
maybe add to that, harming them with your tongue. The Prophet said that it is Salatu was Salam. It is part and an assign of your true Islam
to mind your own business.
We do not mind Mashallah, Where do you work? Sometimes I sit with people, and they start interrogating me.
I'm waiting for my turn with the hospital and a man comes from setup.
What do you do?
I work and so and so. Mashallah. What's your salary?
What am I seriously? Are you well paid?
You have housing,
car allowance over time. You married? How many wives? How many children, boys and girls? Are they married? He starts interrogating me alone. It is sign of your Islam, to leave what is not concerning you to mind your own business. Otherwise you're not a real Muslim, if you start asking about this.
one of the great manifestation of this hadith is that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to his companions once Do you know who is Elmo? fluss?
Do you know who is broke? So they said, Oh, profitable lawyers who does not have ringlets? No dollars, said no.
The mufflers is the man who comes or a woman who comes on the Day of Judgment with prayer, fasting and solokha sure, is a good Muslim, but he had beaten that person shed his blood, he had a back bit him he had cursed him, he had done this and that, on the day of judgment, they, the victims will come and they will take from his good deeds in accordance to his transgression. If his good deeds run out, he will take from their sins and then he will be thrown in hell.
Even though he used to pray fast and give charity and therefore, when you look at this, you understand that this is one of the signs of being a true Muslim and being a believer by the third part,
which is and the Mohajer hegira What is his euro
immigration, the prophet made hegira from
Mecca to Medina. So he Jura has two meanings, hijra of location
which is well known, you are in a Catholic country, you make a juror you migrate to a Muslim country. And there is hegira of actions. And this is what is meant here is the one who gives up all what Allah has forbidden so you abandon since and this type
of his euro
is mandatory upon us all. As for the Hague law of location, this is dependent. If you're able to practice your Islam freely, then you're not obliged.
But if you are in a country that is a Catholic country, and you're unable to practice Islam, you're forced to leave some parts of your Islam, you can leave and migrate, it becomes mandatory. You must you don't have a choice. But if you are unable you don't have financial means you don't have a country that will receive you, then you have to fear a lot to the best of your ability.
And this type of hegira that is abandoning your sins. Is this bound to time? Or is it continuous? It is continuous till the Day of Judgment. The Prophet says Allah is Salatu was Salam
hegira does not stop until the sun rises from the west. So this kind of hegira is continuous. But there is a hadith where the Prophet said Allah His Salatu was salam, la Hirata battleford.
There is no hegira after the conquest of Mecca,
and this relates only to Mecca. So before
the eighth fear of hegira, when the Prophet Isom conquered Mecca, it was mandatory upon every Muslim in Mecca to leave to Medina when the Prophet came with 10 1000s of his men to conquer Mecca and open it. Then he said this hadith meaning the Muslims in Mecca now will not go to Medina because it's a Muslim country. It's a Muslim city. So you remain in Mecca as you were.
Okay. Chapter Four,
was the best Muslim version.
Some people ask us messengers of a law guy
whose Islam is the best that is who is worried with Muslim? He replied, one boy avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and his hands. This is the first Hadees and there
this hadith relates totally, with the one we had just gone through. And the Hadith, in Arabic is all we are soon Allah au al Islam have been which Islam is the best.
Of course, they're not asking about Islam itself, because Islam is one. They're asking about the characteristics of Islam. And instead of the Prophet nssm, listing to them the characteristics of Islam, he is diverting them to the person himself. So there is
a diversion. And this diversion happens a lot in the Quran. And in the sooner when you ask something that is irrelevant for you. The Prophet tells you what is relevant when it's more needed. So when you ask which Islam is the best,
meaning, which are the characteristics of Islam, you could say, being truthful, being fair being on time doing this, rather, the profit diverted them to what they need?
Because the profit as Sam was often asked by people, or prophet of Allah, which Islam is the best, which characteristics of Islam I should follow, which are the best deeds of all? And he gives different answers. Why? Because it depends on the person asking him. So each person the Prophet gives him what is best for him. If someone asks the prophet Isaiah about the best deeds, and he knows that this person is stingy.
He prays night prayers, he will not tell him night prayer, he will tell him to give savarkar while someone else asks him which deeds are the best, and he knows that he gives a lot, but he doesn't pray on time, he would say, to pray on time.
And this is how you combine between the different many hadiths where the Prophet has some gives different answers, because he gives it according to the situation. Each one has a separate situation to the as to the others. Okay.
Thought of Islam, very good Abdullah, then Allah the long line, a man as the prophets have a long way to sell them, what sort of deeds or what qualities of Islam are good, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam replied, to feed the poor, and read those whom you know, and those whom you do not know. By this hadith is just as I have mentioned to you,
parts of Islam is best. So the Prophet says to feed the food and to read or to greet those who you know and those whom you do not know. Feeding the food is the variable
what people essentially need is to eat. And from there, you go up. So closing them, sheltering them, providing them with education, all of these are good things, but the basics, what I need at the moment, not in the future, what is my essential need now?
Food I want to eat. This is what makes me live, if you promise me that you will take me to do my Master's and PhD, as is that a lot but now
feed my mouth, or I will die today but I'm giving you PhD to the best you can and now I want to eat this is the basics that I need. So in Islam, when Allah tells us about something that is basic, it means that whatever you do afterwards, you rewarded for it.
And whatever Allah tells you not to do as sinful, anything that is graver and more serious is also more Haram. So Allah tells us in the Quran, Farah capilla, Huma
will attend her Houma, La Paloma COVID and Kareem do not say to your parents
and do not say bad words to them and say soft and honorable way of talking. So one looks at this and says, okay, Allah says do not say Oh,
but I can curse them.
I can beat them. Allah didn't say that in the Quran, do not beat them. What do you say to that? No, this is logical. Allah speaks to us, in the very least, so that you can know whatever goes up or goes down, depending so feeding the fourth is the basics. You can do this, which means that charity in general, is highly recommended in the deen of Allah azza wa jal, part of the things that
the good believers
do and Allah praise them for that, while you are a Muna, parama Allah who be miskeen and why a team and what CRR Allah says in the Quran, and they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan and the captive, saying, We feed you only for the continents of Allah, we wish not from your reward or gratitude. So the concept of charity is part of Islam. And it is part of the branches of a man. And you display this by giving to those who are in need.
The Prophet said are a salatu salam
keep a shield between you and Hellfire even Bye.
Half a date, not the full date. Even half a day, this is the minimum. So people in their homes, making one kg of dates, splitting it into halves. And going to the polls that half a day, half a day. What is this and I'm keeping achieved from Hellfire, okay, this is the minimum, not the maximum or the optimum, what you're doing is wrong, you should do more than that. The Prophet said Allah, his salatu salam, who gives us
the ideal way of spending who is our role model, he said if I had mount or should have gold, I would not like a third night to pass with anything of it remaining with me. Free nice, a whole mountain of gold is spent in the course of a larger budget with the exception of something I reserve for my debt, so that I would not have any debts on me.
So, this is
which is to feed the poor.
And we can go on and on and speak about the benefits of it. The rewards at the sight of Allah but you all know it is sha Allah,
to greet those whom you know and those whom you do not know this is part of it.
The Prophet said Allah salatu salam, you will not enter agenda until you believe
and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I tell you about something? If you do it, you will love one another.
Spread a Selim spread the greetings of Salaam between one another
