He ministered in the vicinity remedy in
our prisons due to a lot of Milan's Peace and blessings in his last prophet Mohammed from a model on a with Salaam. And along those follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
The topic of this evening is that of science of hobbies.
And what I will attempt to do
is to show the relationship
as well as
to look at some of the principles which govern the science itself of Hobbes.
And the significance of knowing these principles, you know, how practically, is it applicable to us to our Islam Islam that we're practicing?
Now, the first
point I would like to make clear,
because we hear the two terms,
we hear the term
these are often used, sort of, you know, interchangeably.
And the way we can understand the difference actually, between the two
represent represents the vehicle.
For the Son.
The vehicle or the means by which the son is conveyed to us.
The term hobbies
a saying, or speech when it's used as a noun.
And as a verb, it means something which is new. And that's not a verb sorry, as an adjective, used as something meaning something new.
What is most relevant to us
is the meaning as a noun.
From a technical point of view,
it refers to
actions which are done in the presence of the presence of the sound that which were approved by him
which we're all conveyed by his companions
to the next generation of Muslims, and from them to the generation following
fundamentally consists of two parts.
in English, we would call the tech
Arabic, called the method
and this represents the actual statement
of the problem. I love
orange, a description of his action or approval.
The other part of that deeds is called
And this in Arabic is called the Senate.
includes the names of
of the text
on the statement
to give you an example,
what is meant
and the chain of narrators.
I'm going to read the Hadees
Which is found in Sahih Bukhari
it is as follows have definitely said that
Allah had Deaf Anya here and shorba and
and and and in the visa
law you may know he had a he may have Boolean FC
they had they have back.
Now you have Molina
that is was said that told us
this is Mr. mcquarry is making the statement was that dead told us
that they informed him from Sharma
from Asada, from Alice, from the house as I love that he said, none of you truly believe on TV loves for his brother, what he loves, for himself.
statement or the method
would be in this case, none of you truly believed on to the loves for his brother what he loves for himself.
And the chain of narrators. Are those individuals that Buhari quotes, who conveyed that statement for the asylum to him? Who said that, yeah. shraddha patata, Ms from Prophet Muhammad
that represents the chain of narrators.
what does that mean to us? I mean, what is the significance of this
from this principle of conveying statements of profit
over generations, or from students, or teachers to students,
there evolve the science
to distinguish between the authentic
traditions of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, and those which were not authentic.
The necessity for this arose
because of the fact
that when Islam
began to spread out of Arabia,
and the defeated
the neighboring nations,
you had people who could not oppose Islam militarily.
So, they thought to oppose it
by pretending to be Muslims, and by introducing false
fabricated ideas into the teachings of Islam in order to attack Islam from within.
You had people who began this process from the early generation of
during which Islam was spread.
From the earliest time, some of the texts were written from the time of send them because it is mistakenly thought that all of the traditions were written, you know, some,
three, two to three generations after the time of Prophet Muhammad Salah. However, you can find
extensive research done by Muslim scholars where they have proven without a shadow of a doubt that
the writing of the traditions of the problems are some of them took place from his own time.
Some of the companions did write down material. We had a statement
of the problem of SLM in which he told the companions not to write anything from him besides the quad. And this is what is usually held up by orientalist as evidence
that the sooner or the statements, actions and approvals of the problems, I found them were not recorded until a number of generations later. And the significance of that
is that they then claim
that this process of recording was influenced that
By the political trends of the time
the people in that third generation after the time of the prophet
who sought to justify certain actions or certain understandings of positions would at that time fabricates statements
which they would attribute back to them to defend their ideas. This is how the orientalist tried to present how this came about. It was just a huge fabrication process which took place some three generations on and more after the time of problems, some of them and it was used by the rulers
who wanted to justify certain things they were doing, as well as by scholars, as well as by you know, philosophers every group who wanted to promote some idea to give a substance with the given backing, they would quote, a statement of problems or love to support it, which was fabricated by them. This is their claim.
this statement that problems are seldom was reported to have made in which he said don't write anything from me Besides,
came to the hands of the orientalist by the change of narrator
is not something they discovered from the time of passage.
Where did they get this thickness from? They got this from a chain of narrators who conveyed this.
This same chain of narrators also conveyed that some of the companions did write down things from the past. That is, on some occasions, he did instruct people to write down.
See, and what was concluded how Muslim scholars look at that statement of problems SLM is not that it was just a complete prohibition of writing anything from him. But for the general people. And the people who are involved in recording the Koran, they were instructed not to write anything else, so as not to have anybody mixing up statements of problems I fell in love with the class. What was most critical at that time, was to report the text of the crime and the problems of self taught to them because it was being revealed at that time, in a pure form to avoid any kind of interpolation or mixing up with the statements of the Prophet Muhammad himself. So this is a general
prohibition which he gave to the common people,
especially those and describes who are writing.
However, he did give permission to others of the companions, who had dedicated themselves just to
collect to record statements
by memorization, as well as by writing. And we have some well known incidents in which the Broncos are actually instructive where people came to him and asked them about the teachings of Islam. And when the problems were seldom explained to them, they requested, could you please could we get this in writing to take back to our people, he has instructed certain compilers write this down for one individual by the name of Abu Shah was well known.
Write down for him, and other occasions, writing to play. So, one, the fact is that writing two plays in the time of the Prophet.
And during the time of the Sahaba, after the passing away of the Prophet, Muhammad Sallallahu, sallam, the Sahaba, some of them recorded material.
And there is
chains of narrator's indicating that this took place during that time. It also took place after
in the generation of students who studied under the companion writing all sorts of faith in their time.
happened along with the conveyance of the statement
of the problem
from the early generation, in the time of the companions,
we found that those who are narrating the statements also
Narrated biographical information about whom they narrated from, and the circles of learning which they attended.
So along with the hobbies, you had what was being conveyed another
complimentary body of material, which they call an aerobic and
and motor region,
is really we could just call it
on the narrator's
on the narrator's of the traditions,
this was important
the process of fabrication of traditions of the cell from
entering into the body of authentic tradition, this is the means by which scholars aid scholars of that generation and this generation to distinguish between those attempts at fabrication
and that which was in fact authentic traditions from Prophet Muhammad.
And out of this
the traditions which were coming the biographical information which was related
developed a system of classification of hobbies or hobbies criticism in which they divided these into two basic categories.
and wise meaning in
they developed a
series of conditions
a scholar could determine what was authentic and what was not authentic. Now,
I will look at here because
this is just a an introduction really, to the science of hobbies. I will look at here the three most important conditions which they set.
was what we would call integrity.
could be called
Oh yeah, reliability.
I'm the third
The first condition,
This refers to
to be all
not known to be committing any major sins.
disobedience whether it is sins against themselves in the sense of disobedience to a law or sins against people.
The first condition
headaches which was narrated by somebody
who was did not establish their prayers, or is known to
fornication or drink alcohol or anything like this, automatically, that tradition is not accepted.
How we know about these people from
the biographies concerning the individuals,
if you were to apply this principle,
to the information that we receive
through the media today,
we would have to just pick up the newspaper and throw it in the garbage really mean all the information, whether it's the history textbooks or whatever, these conditions would wipe out all that information.
So, you see, actually, just from the very first condition,
Muslims were taking extra care to ensure
to the greatest degree possible, the information that was coming to them was truly from Prophet Muhammad.
The second condition, reliability, this has to do with the person's ability to memorize and convey information
without any mistakes.
how this was determined.
Now, a given
students of the companions, for example, or Companion of the Prophet
and convey statements or actions of the property or sell them over a period of time,
he would have around him a group of students,
they would be recording or memorizing what he said.
Now, scholars would look at
the information which was conveyed by a given companion, if they found that each time that he narrated a statement of the problem was that there were variations in what he was saying, then they would conclude from this, that his memory was not that good.
sometimes, you would find that he would narrate something consistently when he was younger in the beginning of his teaching career.
Whereas in the latter part, you would find that certain, he would forget certain parts of it. So they would, they would classify him as having two stages, an early stage when he was reliable, and a lots of stage when when things are generated when he was older, which were not reliable.
But in general, if it was proven, shown through comparison,
that a person
didn't did not consistently convey information in the same format, same way, then that person would be considered to be a non reliable narrator. And the heavy statement that he's conveying would be put under the category of being inauthentic.
Again, this is extra care.
Now, reliability could be by way of memorization. Or it could be by way of writing.
Obviously, ones who had written combined with memorization were considered stronger than those who just have memorization or those who just had writing.
The last condition is that of continuity. Continuity means that each person in the chain of narration
lives within the same time period
attended the same circle, were proven to have been in contact with each other.
This is what ensures that that chain is
Otherwise, you may find if you find in a chain, that somebody is narrating from somebody who
lived or died when this person was at the age of two or three or four, we say this chain is broken,
not a continuous chain, because he could not possibly have heard that tradition from that particular individual. He was not in the same real time, area,
So, using these main three principles,
the traditions of asylum, were then divided into two categories of size and life.
The significance of
why did all this effort come about?
a law, I stated very clearly in the plan,
that whoever obeys, the messenger has obeyed a law, my use here real soon, for
whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed.
So, it means that what the problems are Salamat to say,
was as significant as the problem
is as important as the Quran
is a mistake. People hold that, you know, the Quran is most important then come the same as No, no, these are side by side.
revelation came in two forms
the direct Word of God
in a particular
which was used in worship,
and whose smallest chapter
was a miracle is a miracle. That's the Quran.
But the revelation also came
through the statements and actions of the problems Salah
as the law said in the forum for my n tipple I didn't How are in who are in Washington, you have that he does not speak of his own desire.
But what he has conveyed to you
is revenue revelation which has been revealed to him.
So, we have in fact, these two basic sources of Revelation, the Koran and the statements and actions of the problems which came to be known as the sun.
So because the sunlight has such a high status
and that status was further in, you know, reinforced
a law defining the Sunnah as being the interpretation of the Quran.
When Allah says in Surah, verse 44, when Zen that you make the vichara to be in a minute delay will reveal to you Mohammed Salah the reminder before I'm in order that you make make clear to the people what has been revealed for them to them
that the Koran
as a whole cannot be understood without sooner
some parts of it can be understood
much of the Quran
especially the sections which has to do with the application of Islam cannot be understood without a lot of sense in the for our Optimus allies stablish the prayer but it is the sooner which tells us how to establish the
alliances phase aka witness the sooner which established this was how much
a lot cut off the hand of the thief. But it's a sudden law which clarifies what the pen does meet up to your armpits,
goes hand in Arabic It could include all of
a sudden now it's clarified for us that it is to the wrist
all of a
sudden that is necessary for understanding of the chronic
As a Muslim community,
there will be disputes, which will occur among
these disputes have to be resolved. A lot I've said before I'm Roma and then Alec and Al Kitab in the need to be in the home, and then the
and then the puffy
Rachmat and the foamy You mean,
that the plan
was there to clarify
for the people
with regards to the things in which they differ, whether it is a difference in terms of interpretation and application of the Koran, or differences which take place amongst them.
Muslims were instructed
they had to believe had to accept
the rulings of the Prophet Muhammad
and suicides this average 65 a law says, For now what a bigger lie we know the hashtag hotkey muka femap shadowbane tamala g doofy, unfussy him, hi, Roger. Nima later, will you send them notice
they have not believed?
That is faith.
True Faith is dependent
on them making you Mohammed,
between them in the things in which they differ
and that they accept the rulings which you have made without feeling in their hearts any displeasure or rancor.
That is, it's not just enough
even to know that in Islam, Krav Maga Salam said so and so. So you go and do it.
You have to do it.
Feeling good about it.
Because if you do it, feeling
you have attitude, you know, you're doing it because you feel like you're pressured.
You're face to face involves you doing what has been decided by the messenger of the law, settle them doing so with a complete submission in your heart.
So realizing all this, and there are many, many other statements from the Quran, which further elaborate and expand on this. for time sake. I'm just trying to stay with just a general introduction on this. realizing this, the companions were very careful to resolve the differences through the sooner after the time of the problems by Salah when he after he died when new
Islam spreads into
Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, you know, Persia, India, new issues arose. Decisions had to be made.
they would they would determine what the solutions were by the Caliph asking the leading companions are those that are available if they knew anything from the Quran on the subject,
or if they knew anything from statements of problem
a lot some occasions when they would ask and they companion would say, I heard but once I send them say so and so.
countif would ask Who else has heard?
Who else can be witness to this man statement.
further support ensuring that the information which was being conveyed was not something
which this person might have mistakenly thought he heard, but something which was in fact, a statement or action conveyed of Fela. This was their means of resolving issues, establishing the laws
and this is in keeping with the promise asylum statement, you know that he left with us two things to see come home rain, left to do two things, intimate sex to the Hema mentor the labradar if you hold on firmly to them, you will never go straight without a law.
Book of a law.
That's the foundation of Islam. And this is why the science of ideas became so important, because it was the science of Heidi's which ensured that what we had of the southerner was in fact, authentic, because we had to build our society build our laws, social, economic, you know, political, whatever laws had to be built on the basis of the four islands. So, it was essential that we be certain that the material that we had, was authentic.
So, what this means to us today, practically speaking, is that
if we have any practice
or we hear about any practice,
we have to determine whether these practices are in fact, authentically narrated from Prophet Muhammad.
the fabricated and weak narration
did not disappear.
Those scholars who conveyed material
they would convey even material for example, which was not authentic, they would conveyed and identify those narrators who were unreliable or whatever pass along that information.
So people would be able to make that distinction whenever the time or the occasion demand.
Practically speaking for us today,
we have two Basic Books of traditions Sahih al Bukhari Sahih, Muslim, which we can rely on for authentic traditions 100%.
The other books the other four or five books,
included in the general category of them, they call the authentic six
that is the cylinder of
autonomy, the Buddha would have been manager and Messiah, as well as more Malik
knows the knowledge, the preponderance of the Hadees conveyed in the books are often
still in these books, you will find
of the traditions are five.
So it means that those are the books, Abu Dhabi which has been translated into English for example, you cannot just go there and pull out any Hadith and say what
you have then to
refer this hadith back to
the scientists of Hudis
who have identified the weak and strong conditions of these other books
to ensure that the material that you're working with is in fact, authentic.
the importance of this
can be seen in
the series itself
in our relationship with Prophet Mohammed Salas
when you read about the Prophet, biography,
you will find a number of things within
there are statements that
when the problems are Sallam was in the stomach of his mother, Amina
that the angels came to him, came to her
informed her that she was going to have a child
Just as the angel came to Mario,
before she bought Isa
at a salon and informed her that she was going to have a child
in the case of Isa that is in the Koran, and it is true 100% but in the case of Mohammed Salah it's a lie. Not true. It's a false fabricated story.
Some individuals in an attempt to elevate Fatmata Salaam to compete with Prophet Isa ma Salaam, they started fabricating stories to make him
like, at least like
because in their mind, if the angel came tomorrow,
and the angel didn't come to Amina, it means that somehow property Isa is better.
So this way we can have that now. That fella was allowed to the Prophet, you know, he's got to be the greatest. So anything that happens properties, at least for me at least.
So you found people
making up the stories about the Prophet. I read also, in some of the literature written for the celebration of the Prophet masala birthday
narrations, which they trace back, claiming that the prophet SAW Selim related these things. And when he was born, he was born in June,
came out of the womb. When she delivered him when I'm when I'm in a delivered him he came out
miracle when it's alive.
Also that when he was born, the idols that were around the Kaaba, the idols of the Quraysh they fell down.
The fire in the Fire Temple of the Zoroastrian fire worshippers in Persia went out life.
But this has become part of the fable. You know, you lose any standard book you can buy now in the market, which is describing the birth of farmers SLM, it's all in there. Yes, you will find inside a Muslim.
The problems are seldom statements
indicating that his own father is in health.
And in fact, a Muslim, you will find him indicating that his mother is in health.
as far as the Muslim world is concerned, angels came to Amina, she is going to be in paradise. The Father, home is a place where people claim they have his home in Mecca and people go there and make special records there and everything. But the problem is that Salaam has informed us that his parents are
people in an attempt to elevate him.
they went on to say that the first thing that a lot created was the life of Mohammed
they call nor Mohammed,
Mohammed and light which was created from a law of light.
And they have a story about how this light went, came to the earth with Adam, within, you know, the
loins of Adam and it traveled down through all the profits, until you know,
came with the farmers that fell under the lights.
And furthermore, you will find people
in the course of the celebrations of the birthday, they will
attempt to BrahMos Flm things which elevates him now giving him powers of a lot
making him superhuman
making him an intercessor one who can change the things in this world
once whom people pray
they have made him as the way the Christians made
and this is all a product off
by fabricated narration
where did it end up? In shook?
So you see this is that that fabricated body of material This is satanic
And what draws the people into his ship.
So it's very important for Muslims in order to build
society, in order to establish their own Islam properly,
utilize the size or the authentic aspects of the sooner in order to do so,
otherwise, they will be on the wrong path.
And much of the deviant practices which are associated with the mystics,
you know known as Sufi
the various practices that they have,
when you look into these practices you tried to track now, where did they come from?
You'll find that they don't have any authentic origin.
They fall under this category
or at least
And again, what it tends to lead to different forms of
The opposite of the sooner is
That's the opposite.
And bizarre has its roots in
inauthentic. That's what it is.
satanic forces strive to promote the Buddha
to make it appear appealing and attractive to the masses of the people in order to crush the sinner.
That's the goal.
This is why today in much of the Muslim world, if you come to people with the Sunnah
money it means
you bring in a new images changing the religion Why? Because when the followers of Muhammad Abdul Wahab first went into Mecca and Medina
they went to the graveyard.
And the graveyard Did you see pictures of the graveyards in Mecca Medina at that time back in the 1920s. These graveyards look like hippies
huge edifice is built over the grave
with those minarets and all kinds of things look like home. Today, you can still see this in places like Egypt.
You go to the graveyard in Egypt.
They have built structures over the grave like home, so much so I visited I heard about it and I went to see
so much so that the poor people who don't have homes have broken in their homes.
You'll find families living in Ghana government because they cannot provide other homes. They have even piped water into the graveyards for these people so they can be able to wash their their living inside the graveyard.
Second stories on top of
homes for the dead.
Yep, problem of dilemmas authentic tradition, told Ali Vitali to go and any grave that you found which was a handstand above the ground, he should level it with the ground.
Islamic way, this is the authentic practice
that the graveyard touches over for her fellow the building was structured over
But today there is a plague in the Muslim world. And what the structure is do is that they create in the minds of the people
a sense of, of holiness.
reverence for the people will come down to the grave. And people are now encouraged to make prayer at the grave. You see people making to walk around the grave sacrificing and all the
And source again is
the fabricated or inauthentic tradition. Create
bid, as opposed to the Sunda crushing.
See that this is very important,
very important for Muslims to understand. Islam is not just a haphazard kind of thing, like Christianity. This is what happened to Christianity. Christianity
was sort of not the way of proper Jesus, it was overcome by the bigger of Paul,
Paul and his followers, the Greeks, etc. They were the innovators, the
Friends of Satan,
may change the law, canceled it, replaced it with their own practices, brought in all kinds of pagan practices from the various societies to let you off today in Christianity is in fact,
from A to Z.
Because they have no science, no means of determining, distinguishing
there was no way to stop it,
because Islam was to be the final message,
a law preserve the Koran. And he also preserved this.
He preserved the cinema. Because without the cinema, we cannot understand the
of these votes.
You have a body of people
who try to imply
that the sun now is not preserved.
And this is where you have to be very careful. Because they're included in many circles they wouldn't. They're included as being a part of Muslims.
But their, their approach, their view, is that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad SAW some of them apart faces.
The vast majority have never left Islam.
And so, when they want to relate to anything about Islam, they don't say Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said their problems as Allah did. They say Eman, Joshua, you mom,
a mom. Mom said that
you hardly see covered Mohamed Salah.
Because they are replaced, much of the swindler
deviated as a group.
So be very careful.
Just to give
we're in it is important for us to make this distinction.
We also find within if you come right down to the very act of prayer that we are involved in
I've stated in Sahih Bukhari some new commodify to
play as you
saw me pray. That means pray as reported to upgrade in the authentic traditions from
it's important for us to pray as he prayed.
On one occasion,
what he did was he climbed up on top of the member and started praying.
When the time came for him to make the juice, he backed down off the member to the ground maids to do that the base of the member and then walk back up continued prayer, all of the companions
because this was something which was obviously very strange, why propolis was
so when he finished, he turned to them and he said, I already did this, so that you may learn my method of prayer.
So the prayer the prayer has
a degree of importance which none of us can deny.
in some occasions, in some cases, we find differences in prayer, which can be traced back authentically to Prophet Muhammad masala
example, in sitting, sometimes he starts what is known as a rash like this
from the bottom of the left foot, propping up the right foot.
But it's also reported our forensically that these shots in this fashion on the bottom of both of his feet, and that he sat like this a lot
with the left foot coming on and he left he also sat down.
So now, if a person stopped in these different modes, he would be keeping fulfilling that commandment of Proverbs in praying as we saw him,
because these are all variations which he did.
However, not all of the common variations which you see most people today are in fact, attributable to the problem of
something so basic,
we should be clear on
that we should be clear and knowing that what we are doing in terms of our prayer is in fact, directly from
what for many people turn up, they just pray as their father did.
family did or as the people in the area did
that based on actual knowledge, surety, that this in fact is what
and one of the classical mistakes which is found in
is that concerning
where to place, one pan
pray with their hands, below the navel
or around the navel.
And this is based on a tradition
found in both the center of Abu Dhabi, as well as the Minister of athletes
reported from have been, they are
from Abu ruffman live in his heart
from the ad invade from Abu hanifa that alley Ibn abee taalib was supposed to upset the solar position of hands and satellites to place one hand on the other below the navel.
However, this is bi
because of graph man, even the top was a known liar, look into the elmarie JAR file that he was identified as a known liar. That means the traditions which he narrates are considered inauthentic.
That the only authentic traditions
with regard to the placing of them
are the ones which are used in the sharper image
based on the narration from firewalls, in which he described the farmer
placing right hand or left hand on the chest.
This is the correct position.
This is just giving you a direct and more practical example. correct position space right and left hand on the jet manifest things got to be up in your neck here. It does. The area this is your chest area, wherever you put it on your chest. you're placing it on your chest, but on the navel or below the navel. This is not authentic practice.
What point is this going to calculate make your life valid if you didn't do this? No, I would say not.
In the person played with the hand below the neighbors would not make this slide invalid. They didn't know better. But if a person
if information came to the person
which proved to them or show to them, that in fact it is not corrected was nothing authentic traditional farmers I tell them to pray with the middle of the navel. And they chose to do so because that's what we do in my place. That's what my parents did. That's what my mom had said that, you know
The person takes that position
very serious problem
in a very serious situation,
because as the early scholars,
and others said that
with regards to somebody who
is told the traditional problems are similar, but refuses it
due to the statement of so and so and so on, so, that that person you know is on the verge of calamity.
And, of course, you have the statement of remark for Island surah Noor, verse 63 for the alphabet intervener your Holly funa anomaly and to see boom fit Neptune Are you see, boom, boom, live this what they were referring back to
verse in which a lot doesn't require, let those who would contradict the practice of the preference fella, beware
that they would, there would be for them a calamity, or at least
a terrible punishment.
Importantly, wanting to do something out of ignorance you didn't know better, was another thing for you to deliberately know, what is what the government did, and for you to reject it
because of the statement or practice of somebody or some people,
because our declaration of faith
depends. its validity depends on our living up to our commitment. We say I do under Muhammad Rasulullah. This is a commitment that we're making to Allah, declaration of faith commitment, that we will follow the Prophet Muhammad our son loves to the tee.
To the best of our abilities, he is the only one who we will follow blindly.
Anyone else, we judge what they have to say, according to what the problems are.
pointed out here that
we have two terms happy we have
the sun now not represent the second source
which is inseparable from the block.
And we pointed out that the sooner was conveyed to our by way of the Hadees Hadees. Being the vehicle by which the sooner was conveyed to us
the way of the problem,
its opposite or its antithesis is bizarre.
In simple terms, that's what is the opposite of the sooner as you have the opposite of tawheed is
the opposite of the sin that is
reported out that science of hobbies evolved out of a necessity to clarify or to distinguish between the authentic traditions of the problem of love and the fabricated body of material which was coming into the information which was being taught, introduced mainly by those people who start to destroy Islam from within.
Following the principle of Paul, you can't beat them, join them,
pretend to be one of them, and destroy them from within.
And we pointed out that the authentic traditions were deemed authentic, if they fulfill at least these three basic
criteria, one of integrity. That is that the people who are narrating the traditions were known to be righteous practicing Muslims,
not known to be committing any of the major sins.
Through that they were reliable in their means of narrating the information either by having extremely good memories
or by writing down the material which they heard and three that is
Change of narration, we're continuing in that those who are narrating,
maimed or met the people
from whom they were narrating.
We said, This distinction was critical. Because Islam, whether on a personal level, family level community or governmental world scale depends on our judging and ruling in accordance with the authentic sinner.
we pointed out and gave examples, our visa can lead to help
lead to ship
lead to major deviation from this route,
through our only protection from this is through the science of Hadith, ensuring that the sydnor with which we're working is in fact, authentic.
There is a lot of aspects of the Sun now, which I think is also important to look at. However, I want to see in terms of the time, is it okay to continue or should I stop?
Okay, we'll continue then to
the second aspect of the similar,
which is important for us to grasp.
When we are looking at its application.
goes into an area of what we call will soon and filk
really, are the sciences of Islamic law. But because it's related back to Hades, the basic concept of sooner I want to touch on that because it's a it's also an area where people become confused, is really important for us to have some clarity and understanding, you know, how the Sunnah is applied. So we start off with the symbol at the top here.
Right now, this sort of what we said was divided into two categories, the inauthentic
or the diet we refer to as the authentic
and of course, what we said is that what we are considering here is really only the authentic so this section of it is really not relevant to us when we're talking about applying and establishing principles of Islamic law. Now, from this assets externer, we have this divided into two categories.
One which we can call natural.
And the other one that should be called legal and natural is called from the public
and legal is called tertiary. Now what is meant by this?
What is meant here is that,
from where was our fella was a man of the law said in the crime pull in Nima and abbatial. Mr. Kuhn,
you high layer, and
say to the people,
that I am only a man
I am only a man just like the rest of
what I'm distinguished by the fact that the law has revealed to me
that our God is one God.
This distinction is in the area of Revelation, who had a distinguished partner.
We already pointed out the bizarre traditions which make problems or sell them a demigod all of this is against
which attributes departments I fell in the attributes of Allah Allah This is outside
when we talk about problems are some numbers the profits of a ball he was also an Arab.
Born in the seventh century,
living in Arabia, who had personal likes and dislikes which were his own
know something might say hello.
Everything about proper fella we follow? We don't make any distinction between things which are no it's all all of that we will insist on.
However, profit from the cartel and he made this
is not something theoretical, john putting on you know, this is something which problems are found on itself.
you can find
in a tradition found in a Muslim
tradition of the
very famous tradition.
When problems are found, I went to Medina,
he found the people of Medina, artificially pollinating the data, they would copy a piece out of the mail. And they would splice it into section of the female they farm for it to pollinate. And their food
when he came there, and he found them doing the ask the right
questions is because of the fact that when you look at the general principles of Islam, you will see that it is generally opposed to any kind of changing the natural way.
In general, as opposed to changing the natural way. And we thought, you know, the diversity crime, where a lot of talks about Satan
as coming to the people, beguiling them, and fooling them until they will change the natural way to know the nature in which a lot
desire to change nature, like now, you have this problem in the
front of the television here, where the breast implants, women who put implants into the breast, to make their breasts bigger, and all this. So now they're finding out that from the time they put it in, starting to leak,
and leakage of the silicone is going in and mixing in with the milk. And it is possibly the source of many of the sicknesses and things that are rising up power.
This is Satan has come to them beguiled them into thinking,
you know, my chest must be at least 35 or 38, or whatever, you know, I'm not, I'm not whole I'm not complete this is this is Satan.
causing people to come in and play with nature and change themselves.
This is why it is prohibitive for women
to pluck their eyebrows,
find women their pocket until maybe they pluck it all out, they just make a line with a
pencil, you know, something like this.
This is prohibited in Islam.
Similarly, tattooing for men to make tattoos, very popular.
Tokyo in Japan called what Yakuza, whatever it is, gangs, these guys, you see them, they look like a picture, cartoons from head to toe.
For him to do.
So problems are found. And when he observed that they were making these artificial changes in the data. Yeah. So why are you doing
this, what our parents did
was always this what we learned from our parents were just doing what they thought.
So he said, perhaps it would be better if he didn't.
next year, the yield dropped tremendously.
60 70% of the yield gone, they only got a few buckets full instead of the large numbers of data. So they came back to preference.
Not to do it, but what happened is,
what is commanded you
from a law and the religion, then you follow?
But whatever I suggest to you from the things of this world, daily life,
you know that you have your own affairs, you know?
So he made a distinction.
And because of that, on different occasions, when proper press on them, would tell the confinements do this or do that, especially in occasions, where it's obviously not something related to religion, you know, they're in battle or whatever, you know, they used to just do this or do that they would say to them, is this revelation?
Or is this your opinion, you know, and war is about, you know, deception, etc. You know, he would clarify it for them. It's my opinion, and they make other suggestions, and we'll listen, maybe we should do it this way and do it that way. And he would listen to their suggestions and choose
he made that distinction.
So what this means
there are some things
which have no relevance to us, in the religion,
we love the property
such as the early generations did, they conveyed no
We think they knew about him to us.
You have a book, which is called Sharma in Academy, in which your mom, Timothy, he collected all of the narrations which described the problem.
thought to help loads for example, if you know what problems are gonna look like
I was brought one Sutherland said, If I come to you in a dream, I
know that I've come to you. Because Satan cannot take my form.
But if you don't know what he looks like, guess what?
They don't come to you.
You might think
deluded beguiled into thinking that this is
instructing you to do this or to do that don't do this. Do you find many, many of the innovations that have come in, you'll find traced back to somebody in a dream, you said, you know, Rasulullah saw some of them came to mentor and to do this
is one of the challenges that Satan comes and deviates people.
your mind material may be compiled. For us, if you want to know what kind of look like you can go and read there, they give good detail about the hype, we want to
No in it. It describes sandals,
When he used to go to the market,
he used to choose a particular sandal,
which was a brownish red leather.
And the hair was scraped off, because sometimes they will be the hero, sometimes it was scripted,
is what he chose run
smoothly, and it had two slaps on it.
if you make this legal sooner,
right, then the Eskimo cannot apply this sooner. Because if he puts on the saddle, his foot will freeze today.
You know, the North Pole the Eskimos, they have to wear big boots that covenant they can't work.
When you find something which is not universal, generally speaking, it is not universal, then you know it's from the natural.
Because the legal within Islam is universal. It's not limited to any people, place or time.
However, there is a book transmission of shaman translated into ordinal and from overdoses translated into English by one of the local scholars of the indo Pakistani subcontinent.
It's called Shama me,
he described the shoes, the shoes are there and then he gives his own interpretation, and he starts to explain that now, if you make a drawing of the shoe,
and you put it under your pillow,
and you do this and you do that, then you will get so many barcodes and so many rewards, this will happen for you and your life will improve.
deviation because this person has tried to turn what was natural to problems that that led into legal giving it now value navigate.
Now from the nuts from the legal center,
it is divided into
five basic categories.
The first one called logic.
And I should point out that
according to the Hanafi madhhab, there's a distinction they've made between the two. If a thought is what is compulsory from
watching is what is compulsory from sooner, but all of the other scholars for the same because the law said whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed the law. So it's all the same.
The second category is called
what's the hub
as a second name, they also call it
Which means recommend
third category called MOBA.
fourth category mcru.
and fifth category called Haram.
Know, I'm pointing this out Why? Because you all hear these terms moku.
So now, you know, people throw these terms back and forth. And most people don't know where they come from. They don't know, you know, they're not mukou there's, you know, like this. most religions the term haram a coup for, you know, they using them, but where they come from? What is the basis of them? Is it just like I feel today? This is macusa? moku? No, you feel tomorrow? It's mccoo? is not mukou? Say? No, it's
just like a personal thing. However we feel where does this stuff come from? Have we base it as a basis in the sun?
of the problems?
Because how do we know when something? How do we divide these things up in discussion? Where does this come from?
We know when something is farmed or watch it, when the Prophet Muhammad wa salam, or Allah has commanded this thing, without making any exceptions.
A classic example of this, which a lot of people
you know, are in doubt about is actually in this category here is actually the beard.
The beard, actually in this category.
the command which is in the cyber hurry is clear. proposals, lm says grow your beard and trim your mustache.
He's different from the big
distinguish yourself from the big
piece, TCP IP is very strong. On occasion, some emissaries were sent from Rome, to come and talk to you.
And the whole time that they were talking to me to turn this back
after they left the company, a doctor, why did you do this?
He said because
they have these big mustaches, no beard, cream chambers. He said because this was a site, which was hated by.
correct Islamic position concerning the beard is that it is compulsory.
It is commanded that you will not find any exception in
actually the early scholars, for example, in the Hanafi madhhab. They took the position that they would not accept the witness in court, a court of law, anyone who shave their beard they wouldn't accept this witness.
Because if this man could so openly go against the silver pseudo law can we trust this man to come the truth.
The second category is that the things which are recommended,
recommended meaning that programs are put on it some reward, if you do this, those who do this will get such a such reward.
Oh, he did it often used to do it all the time.
As a religious act, these things are classified as being recommended or if it was something which which he expressed in a compulsory form. However, he himself
went against what he said later
in his action.
And by doing that, he would clarify for them that what he meant by that statement was not compulsory,
but recommended. Because if I say to you, in English,
that could mean an order that you better go home
Otherwise, some thing is going to happen to you I put me in go home instead of free to go look reasonable. Now, preferably,
the order does never set you cannot determine from an order whether one means absolute order or whether it means something which is recommended unless the context or the circumstance will further explain it.
So, similarly in Arabic This is how the artists will look at every circumstance
a variation, that is another statement of problems Othello For example, He told the compiler at one point that
bathing on the day of Juma is compulsory for everyone was stupid.
But later on he said,
if one makes whoodle on Yama Juma,
but if he makes
so, he later makes clarifying statements to clarify for them and when he said it is compulsory didn't mean compartment is in the absolute sense, but it is highly recommended.
third category here.
This is considered things which have not been commanded or recommended or disliked, it's just neutral up to you.
the meat of Lizard
Lizard meat offered to eat when he didn't know what it was he was about to eat. When he was informed when it was
when the companion was with him I often
don't like it.
So the complaint took ages languages
What do you eat is of meat, whatever of the halau things that are there you do them.
You take a bath because you're sweating.
You prefer to drink Coke, instead of
No nothing in the religion says you must have one or the other. So totally neutral. And
then the next category is called McCool or dislike, these are the things we
had identified as being displeasing to Allah.
one occasion found a companion lying on the ground, sleeping on his stomach,
sleeping on his stomach, so he nudged him with his foot. When they combined woke up, he said this is a way of lying, which is disliked, by the way the people of the Hellfire lie.
So here, he was, indicating it is not better not to sleep on your stomach.
Now, we understand really from Cydia, but whenever problems or problems
encourage us not to do something,
there must be some harming.
When he encouraged us to do something, there must be some goodies.
What is prohibited is prohibited because it's harmful. What is permitted is because it is
beneficial. So when these distinctions are made these these are not arbitrary distinctions, but they're made based on
human needs, harm or benefits which may come to human beings.
on an occasion
I was giving some classes similar to this in Panama is what America and the people are.
Why is it that Islam was like a superfood?
What is the heart?
I told him I didn't.
I believe there must be some harmony. So I prefer to tell him.
Obviously, he told us not to eat to the right hand, or sorry, to the left hand to the right, between ourselves and other
people in those times didn't know about microbes and diseases and how disease spread through you know, so that if you are eating with the same hand that you're feeding yourself, that you can spread to yourself certain major diseases and
I've had a lot of Muslims that just follow this guidance to the right to the left. They save themselves a lot of the sicknesses of people all around the world. We're being demonstrated with
the benefits we can see.
This is just this is a strong recommendation in the case of
The pyramids for a bishop found out later on hypnosis and other diseases etc. But we know that there are some benefits. Eric is what happened was that I was flying to Ghana, in South America and to do some courses there also.
And on the airplane,
the issue of Time magazine
a big distributed amongst the people, this issue was dedicated to
back problems, the various thicknesses, etc. And it was on the cover. And so the main body of the
magazine was dedicated to these different problems. They pointed out the various sicknesses that people have curvature of the spine, disc, crushed discs, all this kind of thing. There's a different operation latest developments in in western medical technology to deal with these different things. After all of us in the NBA have doctor's recommendation number one on the doctor's recommendations was to not sleep on your stomach.
And they explained why it said because when you sleep on your stomach, you know your spine personalized. On the stomach, you have the spine here.
That's fine, the heavy,
Now, in front of your spine is your organs, intestines, your you know the lungs,
stomach, liver, all of these pancreas all these are soft organs. So what happens is that when you lie in your stomach, then this sags, outwards,
the spine sags outward.
And they said this is the major cause of the curvature of the spine. When people reach a certain agency, their back starts to curve over kind of walking around like this.
This is from sleeping on the stomach, as well as they pointed out other ones having to do skip this etc. Also related to this. So they recommend that you should sleep either on your back or on your side with your knees bent. And guess what? McQuarrie
advises the companions when you go to sleep deep on your right side.
Not only that,
but two years ago,
British researchers doing a study on cotton they're
The woman in news here again saw she first her baby died. They thought that if caught death, then they realized that she killed the baby. She's being charged now. Right? But
they had a couple of cases of progress anyway and suddenly got this it means that you put a child to sleep
come back five minutes later the child said no for no reason for no apparent reason. We also call it fvf Sudden Death Syndrome.
They did research into the
factors that surrounded the children died. They asked the parasite when you put the child to sleep How did you put it? What did they enjoy all the different factors that could know statistically the present narrowed down to determine what is the common factor. They found that number one common factor babies were put to sleep on their stomach. So they put out a big article, they cut it out a big article to not put your children to sleep on
1400 years ago told
save themselves. Those who didn't ended up with curved spine.
So, this is the importance here of you know moku
these are things which are beneficial
