00:00:26--> 00:00:31

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah.

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

Aloha

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

john has negotiated. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:43--> 00:00:50

Today we continue the final of the series about the four great giants among the many giants.

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

We have covered Imam Abu hanifa Rahmatullah Haile.

00:00:56--> 00:01:06

The basically you can say, the grandfather of the 40 minutes in other words, followed by mm medic

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

followed by Mr. Mohammed Idris, a chef.

00:01:12--> 00:01:17

And now we have reached Imam Ahmed. Ebner, Mohammed Mohammed.

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

We've already covered

00:01:21--> 00:01:35

about 10 minutes of his introduction and his bit of his background last week and today inshallah we will continue the rest of the biography of his great Imam Ahmed, the fourth of the former heads that would that survive till today

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

as a title we gave to remind you

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

when you think of Imam Abu hanifa,

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

a nomadic Nosov it, you think of the loving men?

00:01:50--> 00:01:59

When you think of him and Manik, you think of the men of aura. When you think of Imam Shafi, he is the encyclopedic

00:02:00--> 00:02:10

he had knowledge in all areas. And when you think of him as a hermit, it's difficult but I have three titles for him in one. He is the man of piety,

00:02:11--> 00:02:22

determination, and resilience, piety, determination, and resilience. This is what comes to your mind when you hear the name, amen.

00:02:24--> 00:03:01

Another thing that comes to your mind is Hadeeth. In an Akhmad was the top and is ranked in Hadith. And the people in Hadith have ranks they have levels and they're called names. The lowest of those names is called a half a half of or muhaddith a half. Today, we say half is for someone who's memorized the Quran. But the real definition or title of Haffield is a half of Hadith, minimum for a half of he or she would have known 30,000 heads with the chain of narrations complete with authentic authority.

00:03:02--> 00:03:13

mm Ahmed is said to have known some narrations say, up to a million that's mixed between Sahih Hadith and bife Hadith and he was able to know which ones from which

00:03:15--> 00:03:31

I don't recall which Imam he was he taught his son 30,000 Hadees in that era, and after he died, 30,000 had his his son was about 12 years old, said to him, son, now it's time to learn the authentic heartbeats everything you learn to the dive week or fabricated.

00:03:32--> 00:03:32

In

00:03:34--> 00:03:40

the middle or the balanced amount that it is he said to have memorized the 700,000

00:03:42--> 00:03:47

Hello, item that is a huge amount anyway, even if you memorize the 100,000

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

and Amen.

00:03:51--> 00:04:13

He produced these Hadees in a famous book called keytab and Muslims. And today scholars for those of you want to know when they say this hadith is in a Muslim document is that they say Muslim Ahmed is no need to search which Akhmad is going to ask which I meant when they said it is narrated by

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

automatically it is affirmative, no Mohammed Mohammed.

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

A shibani is his original tribal name. So they say Muslim, in the book, Muslim, Muslim, but basically it comes from the word of Senate, which is changing narrations. So his book is carried on authenticity. It is a bit unusual, and I don't understand why we have we have six books of Hadith that are the top and the most authentic of all. I don't understand why the Muslim Ummah did not make it in the top ranking of the six. It is not considered good to have a sitter, which are Bukhari Muslim, basically unnecessary at tirmidhi and Abu Dawood

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

Muslim document is a reliable source. But for some reason, this one in some other books didn't make it. I don't understand why although the great scholars, including the

00:05:12--> 00:05:36

contemporary scholars, and later ones and many others, really admirable quality, all of them relied on Muslim document because Bukhari and Muslim Okay, they all came after maybe for political reasons, maybe for other reasons alone, maybe because all these other six books had most of the Hadees that are already in was not and I just put it into these new books and revise them again, a little odd. But nevertheless,

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

nevertheless, when someone says Muslim,

00:05:41--> 00:05:48

then you know that he is a man of oath of authority. When you say Hadith narrated by him, then it is a strong a decent shot and

00:05:49--> 00:05:55

he went to great lengths. My brothers and sisters, I said, He is a man of piety,

00:05:56--> 00:06:15

of determination and resilience, piety, taqwa, although all the scholars were men of piety and dakhla, when we say he's a man of piety, we're talking about way stands out, beyond measure, to the point of what we call What are, you know, there are people who abstained from heroin.

00:06:16--> 00:06:36

They abstain from heroin from major sins, but they still do minuses and there are people abstain from minuses which is Mashallah matakohe because taqwa means to defend yourself and protect yourself from harm as much as you can. And there are people who not only protect themselves from many minuses and reaping quickly, but also from the head end things which they fear may lead to harm.

00:06:37--> 00:06:59

And this is called water. And we gave an example of a memorable hanifa once when he used to make clothing and sometimes it make time for the women. One of them was sitting on the chair. And then she left and the young man came and sat in her place immediately. Mm hmm. Never said don't sit in her place. You should wait until the spot where she said on goes cold. Calls down. This is what

00:07:02--> 00:07:44

this is a form of what are all when honorable Harpo Delano heard about her they thought that he married a Jewish woman. And he said to him, divorce, said why Amen. halal or haram. He said hello. But you're an example. And I fear that in the future men, men will take you as a role model and say, well for the for dinner so easily. So therefore we'll marry from the caveat from the women of the People of the Book Christians and Jews. And because they have these women that don't have the degree of hijab, and the degree of modesty that Muslim women have, especially in those days, I'm not talking about today, we things are getting out of hand, unfortunately, but in those days is much

00:07:44--> 00:07:57

different. And they'll start looking at these women, they'll attract them, and they'll start marrying them and leave the pure pious Muslim believing women aside. That's what I fear or they are divorced. Based on taqwa. And this is called What are your

00:08:00--> 00:08:09

inner was Amanda determination, you're going to find out today, what a determined man, someone who makes a decision

00:08:10--> 00:08:53

and sticks to it to the end. And this is really the quality of men. And really, a lot of us are a speck. When I explain in an affirmative determination. Nothing stopped him Michel. And you understand, and probably to some of you may seem a little bit extreme. But this was his way every scholar was known to be extra cautious in a particular area. Mr. Malik never lifted his legs off the ground, because he ran out of respect for the process of selling his body in the grave. He never lived Medina in his life and died there. This is what he's known for him and you'll see his determination, resilience. Resilience is when something after a calamity or a hardship, they come

00:08:53--> 00:09:00

back straight. It doesn't affect them. So calamities and resilience comes from the meaning of when a rod is bent.

00:09:01--> 00:09:34

And then it just goes back around. So Sasha described the believer with resilience like a palm tree, and he described the arrogant person who disbelieves in a lie and arrogant, like the symmetry, the setup says, the earth tree, the palm tree, begins with the wind. No matter how strong the wind bends it, it'll its head will touch the ground. In the strongest storm, and after the storm is gone, the palm tree goes straight back up as it was before, as if he hadn't been harmed. As for the symmetry, and as is known to be a solid,

00:09:36--> 00:09:49

stubborn tree. The wind comes really hard, and it will fight the wind. And when until it breaks, and when it breaks, there's nothing left. So a man was resilient man of determination and amount of piety.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

Unlike all the other Imams, we said that every Imam had a turning point in their life, meaning there was a time in their life was

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

Something happened. And then they went into the world of scholarly knowledge and religion.

00:10:07--> 00:10:54

Except for him and he was different to the rest. We cannot find that any time in his life where there was something that turned him around made him go into the war in his history, we find that from a from when he was a baby when he was a child. He was always raised on religion and knowledge in the circles of Deen. Why we mentioned last week, his background is that he was an orphan. His father was a soldier. His name was Mohammed. However, he's not named Ahmed bin Mohammed is named after his grandfather had been humbled, and he was a scholar as well. And he was he had a very strong position. And he was an activist against the government against the Omega dynasty with the

00:10:54--> 00:11:19

opposite dynasty. He was a governor. And he was well known for his work and his Mujahidin, his struggle and his striving in order to keep things upright. So that's why when a person is, they name a person after a famous person with a great name. And his grandfather had a great name and great, greater purpose than his father, his father, Mohammed died at the age of 30, as a soldier in the battlefield,

00:11:20--> 00:11:27

in Palestine. As for Mr. Mohammed, he had no brothers. He had no sisters.

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

He had no relatives around him except one person.

00:11:33--> 00:11:41

One person was left in his life. And that was indeed his mother. This mother of his was also from the tribe, Shay Ben,

00:11:43--> 00:12:18

Benny shabam. We said that they were people of resilience and determination. They're the only ones who in the history of the Arabs before Islam, bait the army of the Persians. And so she came from that line, a strong, determined mother. She dedicated her life for a man I've met, to learn in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And she raised him on absolute piety, modesty, added, in all its sense, she gave up her life. She did not remarry after his father, because she wanted to dedicate her whole energy in life on her son.

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

He won't believe this, but mmf mad

00:12:23--> 00:12:46

because he loved his mother so much. And he knew the sacrifice she had done for him. He was determined this way, the termination now starts to develop. The first thing I want to say is he left to repay her back, he did not marry, so long as his mother was alive. Because he also wanted to dedicate his time and his years for his mother, for lovers, then his mother until she died.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

And he was at the age of 14, he married at the age of 40. So Panama.

00:12:55--> 00:13:13

His mother was a widow, at the age of about 20 years old. You can imagine that. And so Pamela, this reminds me of my grandmother, I'm not here to boast that I hope that she was like that. It reminds me in the same way, but this mother is far beyond her subpanel not raising an Imam like this.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

He never had refuses to marry for his mother.

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

If you sacrifice your life for me, I will sacrifice mine for you.

00:13:24--> 00:13:37

Because if I get married, I don't want anything to be in your heart. Even though I don't mean it. I may seem like I'm favoring my wife. And I don't want to give you the wrong impression, my mother. This is now the act of piety coming in,

00:13:38--> 00:14:00

even though it doesn't have to do that. But this was the man I'm explaining to you his personality. See how Allah chose these 40 memes and made them for a wisdom which he only knows. Everyone has a different personality in an area which they become the ideal role models. We can't be exactly like them. Maybe we can, but they're ideal in a particular area. One more than the other.

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

Mm hmm. Then married at the age of 40. His first wife was Ayesha

00:14:06--> 00:14:12

almost almost silent because his first son's name was sada. She lived with him for 30 years.

00:14:13--> 00:14:31

Listen to what Mr. Ahmed says about his relationship with her to his students. He says, I'll comment almost all of my fellow una Sena that Athena center her musta left to an hour here Faker Lima, Masada lived with me as a wife for 30 years.

00:14:32--> 00:14:38

In these 30 years, her and I never disagreed on a single word.

00:14:40--> 00:14:50

Now that's the ideal thing. I'm not going to go into the reasons why husband and wife disagree. But there is a system in marriage a lot placed an order.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

And the man has his role and woman has the role. And if they don't respect that role, then there'll be mayhem and chaos. The husband

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

is the leader of the home, the wife follows and obeys him accepted things which Allah has forbidden, even if it be against their own desires. And he must show her love and care and compassion in return. But if one of them is broken, the other is.

00:15:18--> 00:15:25

But if the pillar of the home is broken, the whole home is broken. However, this is what the meme says, I heard a joke.

00:15:27--> 00:15:39

A friend of mine, Chef innovate, who came down here. He says her husband and his wife, modern day husband and wife in the bedroom, meaning, obviously where they also they're going to be.

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

The husband says to his wife,

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

what do you think?

00:15:47--> 00:15:59

If I became the Khalifa, she says you, anyone but you, I will never follow you. And I'll go and live up somewhere in Sun Valley in a mountain then to follow your rain because you'll destroy everything.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

Then she says to him,

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

if I climbed Mount Everest,

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

what would you do?

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

Would you be proud of me?

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

What would you do? He said, I will climb all the way up.

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

And I will stand with you. And I'll give you a small push.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

That's what he's

00:16:22--> 00:16:33

asked for today. Not to have a go to assist. It's just modern day. Another joke and I heard it from another doctor, Hashem alphabetic features are located on noye. He says,

00:16:35--> 00:17:03

before the husband and wife when they're engaged, the husband does all the talking. When when they're when it comes to ask for a hand. They say that the men, he starts all the talking because she's shy and all of that stuff, right? That's what it's meant to be. That's how it's meant to be right. She's shot. He's got to start out with time. So he does all the talking. She listens. When they get engaged, she does all the talking. And then he listens. And when they get married, they both do the talking and the neighbors listen.

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

And this is the modern day catastrophe we're living in.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

After Ayesha, his wife died,

00:17:16--> 00:17:28

after she died, a man married another wife. Her name was that I had, and from her was the second son of the law. silence and Abdullah became scholars and

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

unlike the other scholars, like Mr. Malik, for example,

00:17:34--> 00:18:11

we said that his son didn't like the knowledge and he liked to, you know, round up pigeons and catch pigeons. It was his daughter, who was who became familiar with him, sila, and Abdullah were the scholars who took off to their father. And unlike the children of the other scholars, their students are the ones who wrote about their mothers and their life and their biography for him and it was his two sons who wrote about him. I want you to imagine now, what kind of relationship with his father have with his two sons, his two sons, the road, everything we know about today, almost the way he walked the way you stepped, where he went, how we treated, it means that this father went almost

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

everywhere he went, his children were with him.

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

And they became when

00:18:16--> 00:18:18

he was a friend to his son,

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

mmf mad.

00:18:22--> 00:18:36

After Rihanna, she died as well. And he lived on. He married again and he had two children after the age of 74 years. He died at 7774 he's still having children.

00:18:37--> 00:18:40

And his kids were still babies when he died, not a lie it

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

it is there is narration about

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

a man afterwards son telling us a story.

00:18:49--> 00:19:23

He says whenever a good man came to visit my father at home, my father would call me to want me to meet him. He would say say salaam aleikum to my friend here. And he would say to his son, I want you to be like this man. And I mentioned last time it is to our children and to younger children what you say to them at a young age, they put it in their head. You look at a child and you say to them so Pamela Your face looks like the face that is going to memorize the Quran and suddenly see that your face looks like a face of a leader and watch them what they become.

00:19:25--> 00:19:52

Mm hmm. I've met had many other children as well. I didn't mention it. But there was sila Abdullah, Xena, Al Hassan Al Hussein, Al Hassan Hussain died when they were born, after them came and Hashem then Mohammed did side by side became the judge of Kufa sides to the out of the Abdullah and after sada and a friend of mine today was cutting my hair is among us. Where is he? Brother Maura. She says to me,

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

having many children you don't know which one will lead you to john. And here we have him and you've got his first

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

And then he had many children and finally the last one, almost, who was who became a judge later on a scholar iron.

00:20:10--> 00:20:25

Allah mentions in the Quran that people want more boys, and Allah gives gills to whoever he wishes and boys to whoever he wishes. Then he says letter Do you Houma, Accra, Ghana FIDE, you don't know which one of them are going to benefit you more, the boy or the girl, the first one or the second or the third one or which one?

00:20:27--> 00:20:32

As for him, and I've met what he looked like he was an Arab, tall, dark, he dyed his hair with him.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

He was very clean, well groomed.

00:20:38--> 00:21:17

He wore a cap like this one. And he wove it with his own hand, so used to sew his own clothing, like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I want you to listen very carefully what's happening here, I'll have San Jose the grandchildren. In an afternoon was a copycat of the prophet SAW Selim, he is known to be so strict in following the prompts I send them to the extreme. He was similarly reminds me of Abdullah abnormal, or the Allahu anhu. Man, he was like that, that even after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out of love for the seller. If he used these to see him do strange things, he would go in this pathway, and he'd make big footsteps to deliberately to put his

00:21:17--> 00:21:51

foot here or there. And then when I asked him, What do you do that he would say, I also saw Sal and my friend, when I was a child, he used to walk here and I'm walking the same footsteps. One time when he reached his place the extra duck and asked him, What do you duck? It says they used to be a tree here and it had a branch of melanoma, it says, I worked with the post, I'll send them once, and he ducked away from the branch. I just remember him when I get in, I duck. And we don't have to be like that. But so Pamela, H sahabah. And h A man has these qualities that it's out of love. And if you have that hamdulillah never impose these views upon anybody. He followed them as determined, and

00:21:51--> 00:22:14

he did not care what anybody thought or said about him. He was if I could make another title for him, I would call him the man of absolute independence. Absolutely. He thought something was right to do it. Of course, in accordance with evidence and proper way, if you thought this Imam was a great scholar, even if he was not popular, he would sit with him and learn and you're going to find out this is how it became the student of your membership

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

in mathematics,

00:22:17--> 00:23:00

was a poor person financially very poor. And he was born like that live like that died as a poor person. Poor in finance, not pouring heart or soul. He never accepted any gifts from anyone. Sorry, he never accepted any money from anyone even if it was borrowing, any gift he took he had to take it because promises enemies to take it, but he would never leave a gift out without returning a favor back. Absolutely. Next day, sometimes as much as he can. He wanted to prove to the people listen, I'm not appropriate. I don't want you to charity, unlike you and treat me like that and I will do the same thing for you. He scarcely ate fruit unlike a medic, most of the time, he ate bread, and he

00:23:00--> 00:23:12

is the moisture with water with a bread and salt, water and salt. If he ate a watermelon, he'd eat it with bread or bread with cucumber, something like that. This is how I live.

00:23:15--> 00:23:35

And he if I were to make a fourth title for him, or a fifth title, I would say the true ascetic ascetic means he did not want anything of this world. different views of Hamlet from these these different images to tell us there is flexibility in the deen. But the reason why he did that is because he was a man of war of piety, his children when exactly like him, but he loved them, and they loved him. And they were great scholars too.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

And I'll reward him for what he has done.

00:23:40--> 00:23:47

If he cooked any time, he would not add garlic or spices not because he didn't like garlic or spices. But what because

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

he didn't see it as a source of enjoyment to him. He didn't want to enjoy too much. They want to get it to his head.

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

He memorized the whole quote and

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

at a young age.

00:24:05--> 00:24:11

And he was among the few youngsters who read and wrote, not many people who were illiterate.

00:24:12--> 00:24:26

Because the written wrote the people and the women especially we had husbands who went to war soldiers going to head that would get in an argument as a young boy imagine as 1213 years old, and he would write that tell him please write to our husbands so he'd be the person who wrote

00:24:29--> 00:24:48

his uncle who used to work for the government and he used to write letters to the halifa Harun Rashid, and a long time passed and Iran and the herunder sheets were sent a letter to his uncle saying we're all the letters you're meant to report to me. He's writing reports about people what they're doing what they're not doing, so that's fine.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

And when a man when he's the uncle said, I sent them all three if they're off meant, he said I never received anything. So they call that madelung imagine 1213 year old boy now coming

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Before the end is asking him where all the letters uncle says I gave you them all from years five years ago.

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

He says I threw them all in the Tigris River.

00:25:09--> 00:25:13

said Why? He said in it, our

00:25:15--> 00:25:23

backbiting and spying on other people and this is how I refuse to do it. The uncle got a little bit upset the halifa looked at him he said that.

00:25:24--> 00:25:33

He said if this young boy has that much piety, how can we compare ourselves to Him? Here's an example to us. halifa Haroon Rashid said this

00:25:34--> 00:25:42

14 years of age Imam Ahmed was a half is remember we said about half is, which is 30,000 hotties plus.

00:25:43--> 00:26:08

Or some say 1000 heads plus a lot. He was a fantastic writer, when he'd go and take the letters of the women to this soldiers, their husbands, the husbands want to write back. A lot of them couldn't write. So they got a meta, right? They had a young child, and they'd write sometimes words of romance love words, I love you. And when I come, I'd like to do this and do that. In my head would write and he would

00:26:09--> 00:26:34

not write these words. Every time I say love you take it out. Savannah love it. Because in his nature Subhana Allah, he thought, how am I going to go to this woman and sit in front of the stranger woman, I'm going to read her because she can't read. And he says I love you. And when I come on that somehow a man of piety is sitting there telling a strange woman these things he couldn't say he used to admit them. So panela and that's why I said, the men of piety.

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

Everybody envied this teenager.

00:26:40--> 00:26:55

You know, when parents they wish that their children could be like a particular young man, this was a man I've met, everyone looked at him. And mothers and fathers, I wish my children were like him as a teenager. This was him. And I've met everybody loved him. Now there's something that I want to mention here. And

00:26:56--> 00:27:09

in the modern day, it has been lost while he with great sorrow. I don't know if it's the wife's fault, or the husband's fault or the society's fault, or whatever it is. Mm hmm. It was what what you would call today.

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

A mummy's boy,

00:27:12--> 00:27:49

which is a wrong statement. He would do anything she told him early in the morning before that he would get up and wear his obeya and everything and he would head off wanted to head off to the masjid. Why not going to meet someone, a girl or going out with his friends or going out to our beloved, we're lucky. No, he was getting dressed to meet the man so you can get knowledge often before anyone gets to them. That's what any friend he took. It was because he wants to learn something often. And when he became his friend, he was dutiful to him. Any amount that he chose anywhere he went was for knowledge was for piety was to learn to get up early in the morning before

00:27:49--> 00:28:07

further to go and his mother would say to him, son, don't go, it's dark, and I fear for your safety. Wait until such a time and the sun would always sit down. And he never left his home at night before present because his mother didn't like it. She was afraid for him. Even though he could go there's nothing wrong. But he obeyed his mother never argued with her about anything.

00:28:11--> 00:28:27

Today, if we say that to someone said mum didn't let me out. And we're talking about a young man here. 17 1820 years old. We ridicule them and teach them your mom and dad control you. You listen to your mom and dad. Aren't you a man

00:28:28--> 00:28:59

in anathema when you see now What kind of a man he was, we will swallow our tongues. When you know the value of mothers and fathers, you will swallow your tongue when you become a mother and father. When your children are old enough. And they're strong enough, you're going to wish because within a year, we know that we don't have been a nurse for those of you who neglect your parents or those of you who strive to teach others about that. Allah says these are the days every person gets his day. You're not a father and mother now you'll become a father and mother one day and you don't have to face the same thing.

00:29:02--> 00:29:25

His friend, even Jerry also learned men. He said one day come across the Tigris River so we can meet and learn. He said no. He said why said My mother told me not to cross the river. I know. But she's afraid for me. I want to I want to obey her in that sense. It says but just do it. It's no no issues. There's no mom said no.

00:29:26--> 00:29:29

Some people say my wife prevented me.

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

Why don't you say my mother prevented me.

00:29:35--> 00:29:55

There was a scholar by the name of Haytham who said, if this young man lives long enough, he will be evidence against the people of misguidance. And truly, he became the evidence My dear brothers and sisters. I'd like to stop here before I go on for a second. And I want to just inform you about something who were his teachers. His first teacher was Guess who

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

No, his father died when his father was 30 years old and he was an orphan his son so his son was still about one or two years old. His name

00:30:09--> 00:30:15

his first teacher, was Abu Yusuf alcalde, who was the first student of Imam Abu hanifa.

00:30:16--> 00:30:43

You know, when people make this difference in Africa did no Hamblen, Abu hanifa they say they're so different right? And hanafy stages to the humbleness and humbleness to the Hanif is all this rubbish that Now today we are doing well. He is great and first teacher was a beautiful coffee, the great students of event bable hanifa. That was his first pieces of knowledge which he took and added and the piety which he took from him. His second teacher was

00:30:44--> 00:30:57

Haytham add new domain from on and Tokyo and he was also happy. And he is the one who said if this young boy lives who will become an influential person to this woman. The third Teacher He had was yazeed hypno.

00:30:59--> 00:30:59

Holloway,

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

and was it

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

at the time of the hanifa was it

00:31:06--> 00:31:32

and he was a very powerful and influential teacher. Yes eat. So much so that when the trial came which I'm going to talk about today, the halifa Moon did not dare to stand up against whoever said that the Quran was created. I'm going to talk about that while yazeed was alive his teacher until he died. Then the halifa went out and spread this false teaching which we'll talk about in a minute. So this great Imam was also his teacher.

00:31:34--> 00:32:05

As for the fourth teacher was up the roof man ignore Maddie. The scholar who encouraged a Sheffield he was the scholar who encouraged the members sheffy to write his book or reseller we mentioned that last week or the week before his fifth teacher was a teacher from Basra from the heartland of benicia. A band from the original tribe of Imam Ahmed and his name was waqia in the Java waqia when we mentioned last time is a famous one otherwise known.

00:32:06--> 00:32:10

Also another name which we mentioned last week.

00:32:11--> 00:32:52

He is the one who made the amount of money for going to the channel specializing in Hadith. He sticks teacher was the result of Muhammad from Mecca. Seventh teacher was in Memphis, Sheffield from Mecca, and it was a mammoth Shafi, who was his greatest and most influential and loved and loved teacher of all of them. In them a chef who is called nurse or Hadith the victim of Hadith. And Imam Ahmed was so impressed by him the story goes like this in Mecca, mmf Ahmed went there one day and he was still in his 20s or so. So is the young man a mama Shafi was still in his early times. It wasn't very popular yet. And he had a friend by the name of Yeah, ignore.

00:32:55--> 00:33:34

speller mentioned his name Michelle was soon he's known as the idea of no mind. And he was his friend in lessons in study. When they used to go to Mecca, there was a teacher of named Sophia Ignalina. You may have heard of him. He was the popular one. All the people went to his circle in Mecca in many circles, he'd go to him. So one day his friend of mine, he noticed that he was not in the circle with them with Eman Sophia, Sophia Marina and an extraordinary scholar of his time and even till today, he looked and he saw a man I've met the young man sitting in one of us in the circle of Amanda Sheffield. Now at that time, he did not know her membership. He wasn't popular yet.

00:33:34--> 00:34:08

He just looked like a better one, just like a better one. He knows sheffy. He thought What? Remember he was sitting with a better one. He went there. And he sat with just a few people around the circle. He said, What are you doing? He said, Come here, come here, sit here. He said, Listen to this man. He said, But severe amounts of it because just listen, just listen for a second. He sat down and listened. And he said it's impressive. said But why did you leave in Memphis of urine open arena to come to a man a better one. He said, with Imam Sophia. And if you listen to him, and you missed out something you can ask him tomorrow. As for this man, the words you hear for him? If you

00:34:08--> 00:34:18

don't hear him first time, you will never hear them from anyone again. This man is something different. Yeah, he said, but okay. He went and sat back with Sophia.

00:34:19--> 00:34:44

Afterwards, only in a matter of about two or three years. mm shafia. His circle was the largest in all of Mecca. And everybody left all the circles and sat with him and the chef. What does that tell you about him and he had he had it. He had a foresight, be able to look at someone and tell if this person have knowledge and wisdom or not before anyone else. And so he became his great teacher in memory sheffy of

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

the teacher among them was Sophia and Dana as well.

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

The knife teacher was gonna say the

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

same status as others until Ahmed became a scholar of his own.

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

My brothers and sisters

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

In Islam, a man of met at the age of 22 years old now you're going to see the man of determination.

00:35:09--> 00:35:38

22 years old he wants to he left Baghdad from Iraq, and he travelled to different places in his 20s all around the world, including Kufa, Yemen, Medina Mecca five times. And how did he go to them? All of them walking. He asked me if he went on a camel, not even on a camel. He asked me if he went on a mule, not even on a mule, not on a horse, not even on a sheep or a goat because it can't hold it. He went walking, walking, why? Because he had financial difficulty.

00:35:39--> 00:35:44

So much so that one time he went from Baghdad to Mecca

00:35:46--> 00:36:05

on his way he got lost and I want you to imagine last on his way, and he does people please guide me to Mecca please guide me to Medina. Then you would ask him why? He said I want to go to Hajj, Allah to do Hajj. Every almost it has for his mother. And in Mecca. That's where he met him and sheffy as I told you before,

00:36:08--> 00:36:11

his famous friends was had also his hakuba Nora, Hawaii and yeah, he had in mind.

00:36:13--> 00:36:46

He had absolute independence. When I said he sat with him Mr. Sheffield, he didn't listen to anybody else is he popular is not popular. Has he got the largest circle or not? You know how today we hear about the new man coming is going to give us a scholar, scholarly lecture. Everybody goes to him because his name is known. Or because so many people listen to his lectures, or he goes off his hidden in lectures, or he doesn't go off his head. He's just very not well known or whatever, his style. But it wasn't like that. He looked deep within that. His words are words that you cannot buy, you cannot get them from anyway, this is a man of knowledge, even if we're two or three people

00:36:46--> 00:37:21

sitting in a circle. And this was a man whatever people said he knew this was the right man and he sat with him one time by Shankara Zakah have been home and as I said, He's one of his teachers, shoppers that lived in Yemen. And one time he went with his friend and they went to do Hajj first. And he said let's go to Yemen to learn off the Shahada, he good things about it. Let's go and learn off him. He said how are we going to go because we'll go walking together. Do a two month journey two months. He said All right, we'll go together. But he said let's go to Hajj first. So they went to Hajj and this panela coincidentally, they met a share of the result of inhuman also doing Hajj.

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

Yeah, his friend looks at him. What do you think he said? So here he is, look, we don't have to go to Yemen anymore. We can sit here and learn off him for a few weeks.

00:37:30--> 00:38:00

So he met Chavez and he said, Would you mind if we come to your home next day? And he said fine. Mmm, it was silent when she went remember had looked at his friend disappointed. And he said, Why did you say that? He said he is the knowledge has come to us a lot brought in to us, said when I made my intention to go to Yemen to learn of shape of the reserve. I intended to do so. I did not want to feel embarrassed before my lord after I had promised him something. And now I go against it. I am going to Yemen.

00:38:01--> 00:38:14

But yeah, she's my friend because I'm going to Yemen. Yeah, he has stayed back and he went to Yemen on his own. And a call center. He reached Yemen and he learned off in over there instead of in Mecca. Subhana. Allah men of determination, as I said,

00:38:16--> 00:38:36

on his way, because he was so poor, I'll tell you extra to that on his way. He was so poor, with no one around him. He ran out of money. What did he do? He had to work as a porter, luggage carrier. Imagine that the man carrying luggage for women and children and men to make his money so that he can go and reach knowledge.

00:38:38--> 00:38:40

So you hide himself?

00:38:41--> 00:38:49

Why are you going to Yemen Yemen? Because I want to learn knowledge? Why not in Mecca? Because I made the intention. But

00:38:50--> 00:39:05

why are you working like this? Because I need money to get there. Why you Porter, it said for knowledge, your full knowledge, you will do anything and your status of what you do is not that's not how you are compared or leveled or evaluated.

00:39:07--> 00:39:36

Your value is something other than how much money you have and what job you have. Some say it's extremism. But however, he never imposed his views on anybody. He will he tolerated every single person tolerate means I understand your opinion. But I did not necessarily agree with it. And I'm not going to insist on my opinion upon yours. Or you insisted on me. I understand that. And insha Allah will live in acceptance and peace. That's the bigger picture just because I disagree. Or you said we don't have to divide

00:39:38--> 00:39:49

him I'm a chef. I said to someone just because we disagree. Does that mean we have to divide we are still brothers and sisters we are still brothers in Islam and also sisters in Islam. In my mouth, my prayed every day. 300 Raka

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

Raka 300 Raka and that was when he was young. When he became 77 years of age, he reduced his 30s

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

300 Raka to how many he became sick and old. Heather gets

00:40:06--> 00:40:15

202 good guests 150 150 Raka when he was 77 years old and only because he had grown old and sick,

00:40:16--> 00:40:22

he used to fast a lot, read the Quran a lot every day in one day on Monday or

00:40:23--> 00:40:54

even when he was being tortured in the great fitna, which we're going to talk about very, very soon. He was fasting in Ramadan, while being whipped, and his back was seeping pus and blood with remnants of the ropes which he was whipped with inside his flesh. And he would not break as fast and people would give him water those who are whipping him say drink, and he would say, Well, I will not drink I'm fasting. I wish to meet my Lord, if I die like this. I wish to meet him fasting, none of determination Yami. This is something unbelievable.

00:40:57--> 00:41:37

When the whipping boy increased, he could not pray as much. So again, he relied on, so he couldn't pray as much, but he may die. There was always an alternative for this man, a man. Even when he was dying on his deathbed, he was unconscious. And Abdullah his son heard his father saying Not yet Not yet. And his son said, What do you mean? No, you don't want to make a law yet. Then when he awoke, he said to him, the shaitan came to me saying to me kottelat, amenia, you have gone away from my trickery, I couldn't do anything to you. And I said to him, not yet. The war between you is not over yet. You're trying to trick me so I can put my guards down. a madman, even to the last minute

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

determined, said the war between me and you is not over yet. Don't flatter me.

00:41:43--> 00:41:55

Mr. Mohammed had blessings and miracles which a lot of data had given him, which other than what he gave to the profits got our met, which he gives to his friends and his own lawyers, and his righteous servants. And among them was him.

00:41:57--> 00:42:08

But before I go into that, I'll inform you now of the mithuna. And the trial, which he went through the trial in his time, he went through a trial more than any other Eman went through. And when I say mmm after med,

00:42:09--> 00:42:32

med is not remembered mostly for his Hadith or his vocal. Yes, he was at the level of what you would call a mere immediate meaning. And that was when you say, I mean, we're not I mean, halifa when we said levels of Hadith he had the lowest is happiness, and the highest is immediate meaning so you've got a meaningful hanifa and immediate need, for one who reaches

00:42:35--> 00:42:39

beyond measure mastery in Hadith, like Professor

00:42:41--> 00:42:45

Okay, one of absolute love is called me. So he was I mean, in Hades.

00:42:48--> 00:43:29

He was known, however, for this trial. And I would say that maybe a lot of people will agree that if he did not go through this trial, maybe he would not be remembered as much not to degrade the other Imams, but to say that mm mathema does all the others were known for something this is what was known for this absolute resilience, determination, this Jihad which he went through, which very scarcely Will you hear about people who went through this over what, over something that is not worth a cent. What was it like our usual days, today, we bring out a little issue, and we turned it into a mountain. And we cut off ties and we move away and we make divisions or become intersects,

00:43:29--> 00:43:48

and we build different masks. And we call ourselves different names, as if all these are different versions of Islam. And when I say different masks, I mean for the purpose of sectarianism, not for the purpose of convenience, having a mosque here and there. And therefore, convenience or different languages is fine. But because of sectarianism on the right, you're on the wrong, I'm going to build a mosque and call it a new name.

00:43:49--> 00:44:27

This is what sectarianism is all about. Mmm, it was different to that. He went through this trial of this issue called Coco, Coco and the creation of the court and there was a group called Marta Zilla. And they started off even before the time of Abu hanifa. But they never came up until really until the time of Imam Ahmed, where they really started to show. Now I'm going to cut the story a little bit short for the lack of time. This is our last lecture and have too much time. So there's areas which I'm not going to mention, I'm not going to explain too much as you know, there are clida if you want you can read about them. In fact, it's all been dealt with to go into it is senseless and

00:44:27--> 00:44:38

benefits us nothing. Let's talk about what benefits us and that is to stand for truth for the sake of Allah Spanner dialer. And while standing for the truth being tortured, while being tortured, forgiving those who tortured you

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

for the sake of Allah when I mentioned this is the moral from among

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

many imams that is time they existed 1000s and 1000s of times. He had to be tortured and went through this ordeal over three consecutive Eliphaz one died

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

That was a halifa

00:45:02--> 00:45:08

matassa followed by his brother alamat Moon followed by his son

00:45:11--> 00:45:12

and then it stopped.

00:45:14--> 00:45:15

Now, what happened?

00:45:20--> 00:45:52

He, this idea of hell Coker and this group of people came along and they said, the Quran is not the word of Allah, it is the creation of Allah. Because speech is created and speech was came after Allah. Therefore the Quran is speech and it is created like you and me. It is not the words of Allah, which means that it can it can be, it can, it can make mistakes, because every creation of Allah is fallible,

00:45:53--> 00:46:18

fallible, it makes mistakes, it's not perfect. So therefore they implant the words of Allah not perfect. And they said, they use their words and their evidences of philosophy and animal Kalam, which they took from Greek philosophy and made this new idea which no scholar or Sahabi or prophet ever said or even came into before. They came out in the time had on the Rashid, one man and Harun or Rashid killed him on the spot.

00:46:21--> 00:46:25

Then he died, alfalfa moon came up.

00:46:27--> 00:46:35

And then a moccasin, his brother, followed by his son alethic. Son, my moon was the first he firstly didn't believe in that. But there was

00:46:36--> 00:46:49

a man who came out. He was a thought that he understood scholar in religion, but he was affected by the philosophy and dialectics of the Greeks and so on and so forth. He made up this thing, and he came to the honey.

00:46:51--> 00:47:02

And he convinced him about the Hulk of the Quran. And honey moon, unfortunately, even though he was a very learned man, very learned man in secular knowledge, an educated academic,

00:47:03--> 00:47:06

he influenced him and he believed what he believed, at first

00:47:07--> 00:47:34

did not impose it on people. He said, I believe in this, but he didn't impose it. But then this man came back to him and said to him, I can't recall his name. But he said to him, No, you have to tell the people this is part of our Cleveland have to agree on it. And if you don't agree it is disbelief. So then, after three years, and my mom stood up on this rampage, he said everybody must accept it. And he came to all of his

00:47:36--> 00:47:44

workers and his government officials. And he said, Good start with my judges, and start with the scholars that work for me.

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

They have to believe in it. And he got one of his secretaries. And he said to him,

00:47:51--> 00:48:06

ask one question. Ask them this. What do you say about the Quran? It didn't answer a clear statement ask them do you say the Quran is created are not created, if they say created, let them go. If they say not created, report it to me.

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

And this is what he did.

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

About 30,000 imams.

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

It's Helen because of their lives yielded. But also the Quran is created.

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

Only a number of them.

00:48:23--> 00:48:37

Some of them they did a trick. They said the Quran does a board exams and the Torah These four are created, meaning my four fingers, the government understood the halifa liked it and he said well, okay, this is called toe to

00:48:40--> 00:48:45

toe to say, and I want the images even just to say that finally came in

00:48:46--> 00:48:52

and three friends of his work contemporaries. They came to him and they asked them the question, What do you say?

00:48:54--> 00:48:57

They said, the Quran is the word of Allah not created.

00:48:59--> 00:49:21

So they put him he reported it. The Khalifa ordered that they be put in chains and brought us prisoners. When they came to that two of his friends the lemma, the yield that they said Nana is created. They couldn't withstand it, our family, our children, and they were left behind. Then it was a man I've met and his favorite friend yahia have in mind Yeah, he of mine

00:49:23--> 00:49:28

was resilient. They put the change in him and on their way

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

but

00:49:32--> 00:49:34

even yet here, healed

00:49:36--> 00:49:41

but there was I think it was Yeah, here are another friend of his.

00:49:42--> 00:49:50

So panela on their way, I think was his How is how on the way is how he died from the travel.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

As for inanimate, he was still alive on his way. mm and is now with the caromed coming on his way he made it

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

He said, Oh Allah, Allah mulata Jima and even Matt moon, our Lord did not let me meet Matt moon. The second day they came back, and they said, you have to be returned. Why? He said your sentence has been suspended, the Khalifa died.

00:50:17--> 00:50:56

Well, ah, he This is true, the halifa got sick and he died. But before that, a lot of them his brother took over. And Mark Dawson was not a scholar. He was a military commander. So he was tough, he was ruthless. And his brother and my Mo, he loved him a lot. And in my mind, before he died, requested him, he said, make sure that there is no item or judge except that you make sure that he believes that says that the Quran is created. And Watson did not care about anything else. All he wanted is to to carry out his brother's order. My brothers said, and I'm going to do it, I don't care who it is, they're going to die. If they don't say it. Nobody's going to be tortured and

00:50:56--> 00:51:10

imprisoned. And so he carried it out again. And so that was brought into change one more time. And he was brought before the Khalifa in both that it was hot. It was deadly. It was Ramadan.

00:51:11--> 00:51:16

And matassa was fasting, in management was fasting. He was put into the prison.

00:51:17--> 00:52:01

And then he was brought out on the first day. Now the scholar that died, who was who started this rumor another one took over. His name was a hermit, to add, to add a scholar that had been affected by this thing called dialectic, intellectuals. They gave interpretations of things which the mind cannot comprehend. And there's nothing wrong with reasoning. There's nothing wrong with using the logic in understanding things, or the scholars did this. But the line is drawn, when you go into areas that the mind cannot comprehend. These are things divine, beyond our ability. When the Christians said Jesus, the Son of God, they went into areas or the Trinity into areas the mind

00:52:01--> 00:52:29

cannot accept even till today. The biggest horror for a Christian who knows is Christianity. Religion will say to you, the Trinity is my heart. I don't want to talk about it, because beyond the mind, or the Jews when they went into the animal kingdom, and these people went into areas that the mind cannot comprehend, about Allah Himself, all the scholars and the sahabas. And the prophets never spoke about it. And so the debate began in my mother's body to change before the honey for at first and Matson tried to you they said yeah,

00:52:30--> 00:52:46

please, you're a respected person. I'll let you go see what they are saying. Say what your friend said, yeah. Your hair than mine. He said, he says I respect him. And if it wasn't for him, he would not be among us. He said, but even then I stick to what I have to say.

00:52:48--> 00:52:49

is determined.

00:52:54--> 00:53:11

Yeah, a man please. Yeah, a man please. And the man said the halifa he said yeah, clear. halifa Yeah, I mean, what meaning so acknowledge his email, said to him, give me one evidence from the Quran that the Quran is created. I cannot find any evidence, give me evidence and I'll accept

00:53:12--> 00:53:32

nothing personal and not awesome, couldn't find anything, then jumped. Then he said take it to the prison. He went secondary came out. And this time, nobody had any scholars around there. I went into a debate with him. He said I have evidence from the Koran that the Quran is created. He said Which one? He said Allah says

00:53:36--> 00:53:57

in Navajo core and rbn. We have sent the score and down in the Arabic language. He said he had looked at me said Allah did not say we have created the Quran in the Arabic language. He said we have sent down the Quran in Arabic language. This does not mean it is created. Then they went into a debate

00:53:58--> 00:54:37

here there, and the debate went on and there is no evidence and Imam Ahmed is reciting his evidence as if he could read them before his eyes even though he was in chains. As far as he's watching, he didn't care whether he's right or wrong. All he cared about was carried out the bequest of his brother. That's it. They put him back into prison. Third day, fourth day, fifth day, Mr. matassa is trying to heal please, I'll let you go with your family. Just say it and I'll let you go in a determined I will not say it. This is Dean is not my religion. So religion of a law. On his way I didn't mention when he was going through the deserts on his way. So Panama, it was not an island. He

00:54:37--> 00:54:59

was not a scholar or a chef or a judge who came to him to give him strength. You know, who came to him as simple better one who hardly knows anything even reading or writing. He came up to him and he said, Yeah, amen. I hear that you've been summoned. To say that the Quran is created. Yeah, a man stands strong. Never say these words. Simple Bedouin in a hermit says

00:55:00--> 00:55:16

Allah, this is from Allah eat a support Allah is sending a better one from the desert, which scholar is going to do all the scholars said, we yield a better one from the desert. When he reached back that they began on the fifth or sixth day, the whip was brought out

00:55:18--> 00:55:20

and they brought the jetlag, the whip up.

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

They tied him up, took off his shirt and lift his pencil. They put him on utility utensils that the people mechanisms that Martina used to use, like, I'll give you an example. There was a barrel that had

00:55:34--> 00:55:35

that had steel,

00:55:36--> 00:56:16

thorns inside of the prickly thorns like sharp razor swords, and they used to make a person where it and he had to stand, stand for one week, two days, three days, and he couldn't move each way he moved, he would be stabbed all these mechanisms, and they subjected him and efma to these different mechanisms of torture. They whipped him and whipped him the doctor who treated him later on says I saw him being whipped as if he was Whipple lay 1000 times. The doctor says if a camel was subjected to the torture that Mr. Ashman was subjected to, the camel would have died. I said an elephant. I correct my words, an elephant would have died.

00:56:17--> 00:56:55

But this is from a loss Panda and miracle. First day, second day whips after whips. The doctor says I saw his back. They were like caves inside his back. valleys inside his back. He said when I came to without any anesthetic, management refused anesthetic. Why? Because it was alcohol. He refused to have medicine of heroin. And he would resort to dry and supplications and he would go unconscious. And the doctor would say I would I would have to take remnants of the ropes out of his body with knives and sometimes I would have to cut out meat on the knives of his of his back.

00:56:56--> 00:57:04

So am I going to subject it and he stood firm? All they had to say was the Quran is created. They sit in don't do the forefinger thing. He said not even that.

00:57:06--> 00:57:31

He was fasting one day being tortured and my costume is coming sancti please email please. You aren't embarrassed. I don't want to I don't want to hurt you more than this. said never one day was fasting. What awesome stood off his cheeks. He said halifa doesn't get off as cheesy. He got up he stood and he stood for him. And the people around him saying the honeypot stood up for you. How could you make the honey bunnies first thing in the heat? An email after madness fasting himself. He said never.

00:57:33--> 00:57:57

They bought him water said I will not drink. I want to meet a lot faster. But he didn't die. Then they saw him after a few days of whipping. And this is in history. Believe it or not, Allahu Allah. They saw him say some words. They couldn't understand it. But one of the writers says later on, I understood what he was saying. He was saying, Oh Allah

00:57:58--> 00:58:09

Do not let my older show his pants was slipping off. All this mattered not to him except that he's out of a chair. The person who's running says well law he I saw

00:58:10--> 00:58:17

his pants by themselves somehow make their way up. And they were tight on his body and never fell, believe it or not.

00:58:18--> 00:58:36

And that was the draw of me saying that. When he entered the prison with his pain and torture, he would stay up in the night praying. Another support from a law came to him a drunken a man who was imprisoned for drinking alcohol. He came up to him and he said to him, yeah, hmm.

00:58:37--> 00:58:45

I have been whipped 40 lashes each time for drinking alcohol and I have been imprisoned. I have now been imprisoned for four years because I drink alcohol

00:58:46--> 00:59:23

and I cannot resist my alcohol. And I have resisted the whipping for four years because of something haram alcohol says you are resisting the whipping filler. For the sake of Allah do not give in pharmacies or for alcohol you can resist it for something filler. And the management said Allahu Akbar, this is more support from Allah. No scholar, no pious person, no one, a drunk, an alcoholic, and a better one from the middle of the desert who knows nothing of reading and writing except sheep and camels and goats and their feces.

00:59:24--> 00:59:52

This is where the support came from. It comes to show to us that don't my brothers and sisters think that you have to get your knowledge or wisdom or advice even from a child you can get it even from a person on the street you can get it wisdom of the truth is taken no matter who it comes from. Otherwise it's arrogance and proud, proud. crowdedness one prison inmates and he make friends with all the prison inmates. This man is subject I'm talking about 13 or 14 years of his life in prison that out.

00:59:54--> 01:00:00

One man came to me and they felt sorry for him. And he said to him, yeah, amen. Just get yourself out of this.

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

We can't be seeing you like this. He looked at him and he said, Are you a student of knowledge? He said, Yes. He said, Look outside the window of this small door of this prison. He looked outside. And he said, Ma, what do you see? He said, are una sala, Hassan homina homina akula, Manuel karate, I see people I cannot count in numbers 1000s and 1000s of people waiting outside, could see the open.

01:00:26--> 01:00:38

They are carrying pencil, they are carrying pins, feathers, or pens, and writing material that they write on. He said to them, they are students of knowledge in omean, to the moon Akali.

01:00:40--> 01:00:42

They are waiting for what I have to say.

01:00:44--> 01:00:55

They're gonna write what I have to say. And for the generations to come in the future. This is what the knowledge will be. I am the last standing on this. I must enter.

01:00:56--> 01:01:00

They are waiting for my word. And they're going to take it

01:01:02--> 01:01:05

the halifa and moto sim

01:01:06--> 01:01:07

died

01:01:08--> 01:01:31

and then worth his son took over. Same thing was affected by but this time I'm worth. He looked at email. And he saw that there was social issue. He didn't want an uprising against him. Because the people the amount of people was sympathizing with him Amador too many. So you had to stop the torture, and take off his chains for several years in anathema taught the students from behind bars.

01:01:32--> 01:02:01

Until finally, one day he stood him up and this ad was standing there and it was sitting and a man was standing there. He said to him, the nobody came up to me and said, just say whispered to my ear and let you go. whispered I have a connection with the halifa he didn't know he understood this a man Listen, I didn't care about you are you are you hit die in this cause? Then he said to me, I said, Give me one evidence and I will follow you.

01:02:02--> 01:02:03

He said,

01:02:05--> 01:02:08

Man, the Most Merciful, he taught the Quran.

01:02:09--> 01:02:21

Mr. Mohammed said, Allah did not say man holla call Quran created the Knesset. LML Quran he taught the covenant, this is not evidence. Then he said to him these words he said, what you are saying?

01:02:22--> 01:02:25

Did the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem Know what? He said? Yes.

01:02:26--> 01:02:32

Actually, he said to him, No, because he said yesterday's evidence. He said they did Abubakar notice?

01:02:35--> 01:02:35

He said no.

01:02:37--> 01:02:43

He said that. He said yes. He said the aroma of the hotdog notice he said yes. He said Did they talk about it? He said no.

01:02:45--> 01:03:16

He said SLM is silent about it. abubaker is silent about it. All mine is silent about it. And do you think you're better than the processor center worker and Homer to talk it? They stayed silent? Why can't you stay silent? And that's when it was the last straw allopathic started to think with his head. afenifere It says in the in the narration that alethic started laughing so badly that he fell backwards. He said honey faceva special way of laughing they gotta go on their back and lift their legs up. He fell back and lifted his leg up saying

01:03:17--> 01:03:24

yeah. Nabil to add the Prophet number Quran Omar, they stayed silent, and you had to open your big mouth.

01:03:25--> 01:03:36

Until finally alethic looked at and he said this is rubbish, and worth the guide. But he didn't release him and then announce it. How to another halifa came up.

01:03:38--> 01:03:42

Was it worth it? Well, the one off to him. And he said What is this?

01:03:43--> 01:03:44

He released the map.

01:03:46--> 01:04:28

And he came to the Martha's ILA. And he stopped them where they were. Some of them had to be put to death. And some of them were put in the mechanisms of the torture today's to torture the other people with and the whole of the city. And hanifa announced that the martyrs in are rejected and refused. And this Imam has shown that they're wrong. And then the people of the Medina of the whole city came from Baghdad, and emails and all those who whipped him and tortured him seeking His forgiveness, including the Khalifa you know, like the Australian there. The National apology for the Aboriginals, the Rudd government like that. We apologize officially to him, and we hope that will

01:04:28--> 01:04:37

forgive us in an effort announced he said I forgive every person every halifa every person who instigated this every person who whipped me

01:04:38--> 01:04:48

and I forgive them with all my heart except the Mata Xena. I don't forgive them. Why? Because if I forgive them, I am supporting a deviant sect I don't forgive them.

01:04:49--> 01:04:50

Mmm mmf met,

01:04:53--> 01:04:59

forgave in the course of a law. And this is the level of a level of a law when someone says by a law

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

He says For the love of life, we give you

01:05:03--> 01:05:08

evidence. He never took anything person. I'll finish it off in sha Allah.

01:05:10--> 01:05:19

About his miracles Allah gave him once a crippled mother asked her son to go to bed while he was in his home.

01:05:21--> 01:05:27

She was crippled, and she said, Go to him and ask him to make up for me fly here his daughter is accepted.

01:05:28--> 01:05:30

When her son reached the mount Mohamad,

01:05:31--> 01:05:41

he said, Imagine my mother has sent me to make the art for she is crippled, the man look disappointed. And he said to him, you've come to ask me to make the art for you.

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

You make the heart for me.

01:05:45--> 01:06:01

This is the humbleness and piety that I was talking about. Not saying yes, I'm it, make diet for me. I need your diet. So the son thought that he didn't want to make diet so we left. When he reached the home, he found his mother standing up and walking in Alabama that made it for his mother.

01:06:05--> 01:06:06

Mr. Mohammed

01:06:08--> 01:06:23

never accepted any gifts from the government or money. His son Silas, married a wealthy woman, and he bought some expensive furniture about $4,000 homes. One day a fire lit up in his house and burnt all the furniture and everything.

01:06:26--> 01:06:34

A mom saw that said, I am not an instance after his father's death. He said I am not upset because my furniture was burnt.

01:06:35--> 01:06:47

But because I kept this garment, which my father used to wear and he gave it to me after his death. Every time I prayed I wore it every time I went to the doctor, every time I gave a Holocaust, I wore it a circle of knowledge.

01:06:49--> 01:06:52

So he entered into his house and he saw everything burnt.

01:06:54--> 01:06:56

He looked and guess what?

01:06:57--> 01:06:59

He found the garment unburned.

01:07:00--> 01:07:05

Allah He This is in history. He said everything was birth except the garment of my father.

01:07:06--> 01:07:12

So much that he meant mathematically knew that the silence was taking an abalones taking money from and worth it.

01:07:14--> 01:07:53

And he never accepted money from him. So he said to his children, silent and Abdullah. He said now that you took money, and I know they're taking gifts from the halifa, even though I think was Haruna Rashid, Haruna Rashid. And she loved him so much, he loved him. And he was a pious person. But remember, he was determined didn't want to take money from the government. So he gave it in secret to his children. Solomon, Abdullah said don't tell you that when he found out he said, while law I will not eat at your house anymore. Or asleep in your home on anything you have. Because all of it comes from the money of the government. He didn't say it out of hatred. He spoke to his children. He

01:07:53--> 01:08:05

loved his children, everything. But when they came to him, they said, Oh, Father, why don't you is that halal or haram? He said, No, no sons, you can take it. It's okay to learn. But I have dealt, I'm just leaving it out of doubt.

01:08:10--> 01:08:34

Once his son made arctica, he had a son, a grandson and his father came to him I want to tell you something very important. He said to you make sure that you give to the poor people. First, they invited the dilemma. They invited officials and he was among the scholars who used to remember the poor people more than any anyone else. Why? Because he was a poor person himself, and he was an orphan himself. One colleague said

01:08:35--> 01:08:40

I look at Ahmed just to learn manners in different occasions and positions.

01:08:42--> 01:08:45

He always returned current of the term that favors ASAP.

01:08:46--> 01:08:48

apostle who tortured him

01:08:50--> 01:08:52

and Mark Dawson who tortured him.

01:08:53--> 01:09:22

A man I've met forgave him. I'll tell you why. He knew Mr. Kasim had conquered a land near the ruins just because he had done this for the sake of Allah. Eman ashmit without a moto sim apologizing without a moto sim going to him and mellitus him died wanting the torture and imprisonment of mmf met mm athma. Just like that, for knowing that Al Matos in conquer land for Allah. He said, Oh ALLAH forgive a motto.

01:09:24--> 01:09:59

It's about what sort of service that you do for Allah, that the mcminn forgives you. You hurt me. You talk about me. You do all these things. But if I'm truly a Mormon, I don't care. If I see an act of piety from you any act of piety, I'll say, you know what, because he or she prays five times a day, because he or she gives him charity. I'm just going to forgive them for a law and email used to say, Maryam Felker, and you as the who call Muslim Mr. Berbick. What benefit will you get on the day of judgment that your brother or your sister be tortured?

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

by a law because of you What benefit you're going to get of that. So he said, I forgive him.

01:10:10--> 01:10:15

And I asked a lot to make me a ransom for all those misguided

01:10:16--> 01:10:21

Allahu Akbar. All those are misguided I want to make me a ransom for them on the Day of Judgment.

01:10:29--> 01:10:34

One time a man of Sheffield he moves the heart really, to a person to forgive someone else.

01:10:36--> 01:10:42

Just because you say I want me to be around someone the Day of Judgment for these people who are misguided even if they hurt me,

01:10:43--> 01:10:50

is paid to be on piety. We say today is a Miskin had he is that wish he gets stepped on.

01:10:52--> 01:10:53

He gets stepped on

01:10:54--> 01:10:56

Alberta you too much. His hair is too soft.

01:11:00--> 01:11:06

And it's the reason why I've also sent him said I saw the majority of people in general for Korra, the poor people, the soft ones.

01:11:09--> 01:11:12

A chef and he went to Egypt and farewelled Mecca.

01:11:13--> 01:11:29

And he said the ultimate I leave behind me a man of great knowledge. I will miss him. Mmm, I promised him that it will visit him in Egypt. But time pass and remember him I didn't have the financial means. So remember, Chef, he got a little bit upset. So we sent a letter with one of his students saying to him

01:11:30--> 01:11:38

and Mr. Mohammed sent a letter to him saying I have no money. I can't go. But I really share a lot. So Sheffield, he got him a job as a judge in Yemen.

01:11:39--> 01:11:49

He sent a letter to him and said, I got you a job in Yemen so that you can have money so you can come and visit me. Mm hmm. I replied to him and said I will never accept the post with the government.

01:11:51--> 01:12:14

And remember, Sherry kept sending and saying Oh, about Abdullah. Amanda had said to him about the lottery membership fee. Please don't mention this to me. I've said no. And members shall be kept on insisting Take it, take it take it several to 812 times to find the email sent him a letter saying about the law. If you bring up this subject to me again, you will never see me again.

01:12:16--> 01:12:52

He didn't say this. I know it seems harsh or stubborn. But we'll lay that out for a different this is piety from his side, not to be rude. And remember chef, he understood what he meant. He's not just saying it to any person. No chef, he understood what he meant, was saying. So Pamela, Amanda chef, he died. And he meant mathematic couldn't have the means to visit him. But he went there two months after his death. He was traveling takes him four months to reach right. He thought I'll catch him. But so Pamela he didn't meet him and we said last week that the man sheffy died. Also as a result of the beating of other students. This was some sites semi murder, and he couldn't reach him.

01:12:52--> 01:13:03

He said the biggest regret for me was that I couldn't see my beloved Imam Shafi two months he missed him. He missed him two months later. So he visited his grave and he made diet for him and everything.

01:13:05--> 01:13:37

One last one few more things his son Silas said my dad ordered me to buy a gift one day worth five did Hans is didn't have much money. I bought a gift with five denims for my neighbor. So when I asked him Father, why did you order me to do that? He said, because yesterday I saw my neighbor give a gift to my son side side is about two or one years old. Two years old. I saw him give him a gift. So I bought gifts for his children the next day.

01:13:38--> 01:13:45

He didn't want anyone to make him feel poor. He had a dignity. He loved this and he brought him love with other people.

01:13:46--> 01:13:50

Someone who was jealous said to animate our kid

01:13:51--> 01:14:06

I'm sorry to have said Haroon Rashid, the next 30,000 with a worker who loved one person was jealous cetera and moto working ashmit doesn't want to take gifts or money from you, because he doesn't accept your position of ruling.

01:14:08--> 01:14:15

Maybe because it is not legitimate, wanted to make fitness and moto worker said to him, If my father Amato's him

01:14:18--> 01:14:24

it was his father resurrected and told me it had something against you. I would not believe

01:14:25--> 01:14:30

everybody knew in an athlete's intention. This is how it was known.

01:14:31--> 01:14:35

And lastly, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam

01:14:36--> 01:14:37

in Africa in Hamden.

01:14:39--> 01:14:42

When he passed this fitna in his trial,

01:14:43--> 01:14:48

hundreds of 1000s of people around the world began to remember him.

01:14:50--> 01:14:51

The day that he died.

01:14:52--> 01:14:53

There is an exaggeration.

01:14:55--> 01:14:57

They say about a million people follow these jenessa.

01:14:59--> 01:14:59

And some people say

01:15:00--> 01:15:02

exaggerating. They said

01:15:03--> 01:15:04

when he died

01:15:06--> 01:15:10

certain number of rabbis and certain number of priests embraced Islam.

01:15:12--> 01:15:25

And this is of course, not true because his own students said this is not true even his children. He said you know what if he died in only one person embraced Islam that will be enough Masha Allah

01:15:26--> 01:15:41

after he died, there was a great funeral for him. It is said that about 100,000 attended his funeral that is more likely the government stopped and it was a national, it was a national.

01:15:45--> 01:15:55

Any holiday if you like, they stopped everything. People close their shops, the government stopped their work everybody to attend the funeral of the amount of money.

01:15:57--> 01:15:59

After this 15 years of torture, Allahu Akbar.

01:16:01--> 01:16:06

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam. What happened after him was

01:16:07--> 01:16:08

a disaster.

01:16:10--> 01:16:12

His students

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

became overzealous and extreme, like the students of Sheffield, who beat up

01:16:21--> 01:16:23

students of mathematical European membership.

01:16:24--> 01:17:05

And they began to become too rigid, too strict beyond measure, saying some of them even went to the extent of saying, after the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam no one is more important or valuable or pious than him, not even more than Abu Bakr Abdullah was not even more than him. And some said only Abu Bakr and Omar but why they said because the management went through the torture of halco Quran, Abu Bakr Domino has went through trials, but they had supporters, as we met not really had no supporters. And this is what like extreme zealous matamata This is how long they went to the extent of saying, there is no greater fuckery than mmf mud on the face of the earth. And this is again,

01:17:05--> 01:17:42

overzealous approach. extremism are also sometimes to say how they can muddle up their own instead of three times soon to destruction of the extremists. And he has said lotrisone come out of the Masada is at the mercy of God who do not overpraise me like the Christians praised over Praise Jesus son of men until they turned him into a god. And unfortunately, the students and students of the students became more and more and more. It is said that what was not said this is true. The fact that students students, what they started to do was they went and started to do this police of Ahmedabad motto for a longer command and good and evil, they said that they were the ones who

01:17:42--> 01:18:00

carried sticks, and they would walk in the streets. And if they see a woman that was showing her face, for example, they would carry the stick. And they would subject her to whipping. And they used to what was if a person didn't go to the site straightaway, they would whip him those harsh approach that if a man was there, he would whip them.

01:18:03--> 01:18:04

So much so that

01:18:05--> 01:18:10

they went beyond mission, taking the law into their own hands going beyond the halifa.

01:18:11--> 01:18:50

Sometimes, and later on some of these students, what they would do is they would instigate something in order to prove the method of MMR from A to B right, just to pick up a fight. I remember even till now, some some of these people with this approach, whether it be from the internet or the hamburgers or the Sharpies or the Maliki's, we find this same approach, but they pick on the hamburgers, the humblest pick on the Sharpies and hanifin. And they call them these names. hanafy. Chef hamdulillah I'm against that. People calling themselves like that. You can say I follow this method. No worries, no worries, yeah, he followed. These are great imams. But don't be blind followers to the point

01:18:50--> 01:19:00

where you divide and you begin to pray beyond the person you begin to fight over. insignificant issues will lie lean to the point where a person would cross in front of a person who's praying.

01:19:01--> 01:19:18

right cross in front of him, has done cross in front of him to instigate a fight. When the person who's this poor person is simple, I say, why did you cross in front of me and they begin to find out says, What's wrong with you? And you will say to him, you cut off my prayer and you'll say you're a jerk and you're ignorant. Didn't you know that?

01:19:19--> 01:19:27

If you're praying behind the email, I can't I don't cut off your prayer. And if I pass in front of the email, what what's the big deal that you're picking a fight with your brother?

01:19:29--> 01:19:40

Jani we do more harm than this year? Nakamura, the Allahu anhu he did a mistake on his his afenifere one day he climbed up the ladder and he looked in the backyard of someone and he found them drinking alcohol.

01:19:41--> 01:20:00

And he said I caught drinking alcohol under the Islamic ruling come to be with the person that he said okay, man, I mean, what if we did one thing wrong? I did one thing wrong you did three things wrong. You said number one you spied and that's how wrong number two you entered through the back of the house when Allah says enter the house.

01:20:00--> 01:20:02

From its front doors, and number three,

01:20:04--> 01:20:09

number three, you expose my sin in public when it was in secret.

01:20:10--> 01:20:14

Amira makani looked at him and he said, and he started to cry.

01:20:15--> 01:20:28

He said, You're right. I fear Allah subhanho wa Taala but don't drink again. And he went away like this, we learn not to be overzealous taking over our own hands watching as if we're pulling her arm and hand and police.

01:20:30--> 01:21:13

Finally, brothers and sisters in Islam, I did not talk about the 40 man. So that you know, to impose upon you this method better than that method or whatever. I wanted to to learn the manner of how these scholars are as role models, the manner of their mothers, the manner of their upbringing, their piety, the way they debated in respect, the way they respected each other, the way they reasoned the way they feed a lot before anything else, and how knowledge is not about information that you know, but however, it is with the verse of the Quran, which I started off with, and now I end up with it out of the lady ministry Tongan regime. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Shama, Amina

01:21:13--> 01:21:15

Nevada the hill.

01:21:17--> 01:21:22

Truly the ones who truly fear of law are the ones who are scholars and the law says shahidullah law

01:21:29--> 01:21:30

aka

01:21:31--> 01:21:32

Eagle eco.

01:21:34--> 01:21:37

Eco oh nine muco

01:21:38--> 01:21:38

been

01:21:40--> 01:21:43

a lobbyist witness and his angels.

01:21:44--> 01:22:27

The law because there is no god but He and his angels are in the high ranks and those injured with knowledge are in higher ranks, why they are the ones in judo knowledge who fear our last panel dialer. Their motto is I do not know when they don't know. And their fear is to say something which is wrong. And their priority is the unity of the Muslims, the peace among the Muslims, the harmony among the Muslims, not the division among the Muslims. This was their intention, and this was their goal. I thank you for listening. And I ask Allah subhana wa tada to have made me a tool of his in some guidance in your life. Please brothers and sisters, you look this up, you read about it, you

01:22:27--> 01:22:49

learn intuitive, share a lot and teach others make the art for me. And I will make the art for you. I asked the last panel data to make us among the true scholars, the true learned ones wisdom full of piety and gather us with them on the Day of Judgment where there was some Allahu and abena Mohammed by the use of Belgium and I'd like to thank the Islamic Information Services network of Australia

01:22:51--> 01:22:58

for inviting me and having this opportunity to gain some rewards in Shall I ask Allah to have accepted was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato

01:23:14--> 01:23:15
