all praise to Allah May Allah Peace and blessings beyond his last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
This evenings topic
the way of the profit.
Or the way is only one
way of the profits, or the way is only one
meaning, that the prophetic way is only one way
that there is only one way
to Allah to God,
for us to achieve or to receive
the blessings which Islam has to offer.
We can only achieve those blessings following one single path.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so, as Maya
the importance of following the way that single way,
the way which he refers to as the way of the party of a law,
why am I here to one la la hora Sula, Valentina amanu, for in the law, he Humala, Hollywood
and whoever takes a law and His Messenger
and the believers as supporters,
they indeed, then indeed, the party of a law will be victorious.
Indeed, the party of a law
they are the victorious one.
And no matter how much we research in the Quran, and the sooner
we will not find
any praise for division.
Not in the authentic sooner, we will not find any praise for division.
In fact, wherever we find division described, it is described in negative terms.
Either a law
curses those people who
fall into division, splitting up their rights, as in Surah, rwm 30th chapter verses 31 and 32. Well as a cool new mineral mushrikeen mineralogy in a for codina home wakanow Shia kulu has been the malady him for the horn,
and do not be
of the pagans.
Of those who split up their religion and became sex, each sect rejoicing in that which it has.
This is blameworthy as a speaking ill of division, and splitting of ranks.
And we find a lot of speaking about this splitting, leading to weakness and failure, saying in Surah, unfurl the eighth chapter, verse 46, we'll add another potential, whatever the habari hukam re hokum
do not dispute among yourselves, and cause your own failure and loss of power.
The prophet SAW Selim
in a hadith narrated by more than a B Sophia.
Indeed, those before you from the People of the Book divided into 72 seconds,
and the followers of this religion was split up into 73
72 of them will be in the fire and one in Paradise
is this phrase of division
is implying that division. The process of dividing the love of
sectarianism, factionalism, all of this is despised in Islam.
However, there are some common Hadees which are quoted in defense of splitting up different groups, you know, people following different movements etc and each one taking its own path there are
Hadees quoted among them, the last Amati Rockman the differences among my nation is a mercy
is commonly quoted in this regard. However, this quote unquote Hadees is mogador more meaning it is fabricated for those of you that attended this past week's course in Hades sulan, Hades, Hades, you know what mogadore is fabricated
cannot be relied upon it's a lie falsely attributed to those who Lhasa Salaam.
is us hardly can do the day to day to my Sahaba or my companions are like stars,
he will be guided by any one of them that you follow.
This is again, promoting the idea that if you follow one of them, as long as you follow one, no matter if one goes this way, one goes the other way.
You're rightly guided. So it is something praiseworthy. But in fact, this division splitting up is something condemned, not praiseworthy at all. What we find in the Quran
is a statement which Allah has promised us and I'm saying, Well, I'm not sure it must have been for 10 year old.
Indeed, this path of mine is a straight path. So follow it.
And on one occasion of the liveliness road said, that allows messenger drew a line for us in the ground,
on the dirt, and he said this, the straight line which he drew, this is the path of a law. Then he drew lions going off on either side, like the way the veins of a leaf branch away from the central vein.
And he said, these are the paths on each on the head of each path is a devil calling people to it.
Then he recited that same verse, one irati muster peyman saburo wala saburo suvidha for the federal copy command v.
And this is my straight path, so follow it and do not follow the other paths as they would separate you from his route from the path of Allah.
In this particular verse from the Quran, we noticed that when the Prophet was seldom is made to speak about his path, the term used is
crrt Mr. Payments irati see a lot my path a single path,
but when he speaks about the path of the others, he uses a symbol,
the path the other path, when whenever a law speaks of the way of the prophet SAW, Selim is described as a single path, whereas the path of this misguidance is described as a as a path having many branches in it many many different paths. So, this stretches them the concept that there is only one way
and if no Kmf said
this is because the path leading to Allah is only one
and it is what he sent his messengers and sent his books with
and no one reaches him except with this path.
Even if people take other paths, and try to open every door, these paths will be blocked off, these doors will be closed. And the exception of this is the one path. For indeed it is connected to a law and leading to him.
However, the high obstacles of this path causes people to doubt it and abandon it.
And those who have strayed from it, have not done so except as a result of their liking for multiplicity, their dislike for individuality, with a haste in reaching their goal and cowardice of bearing it's long distance. And he said, Whoever views the path as being very long, then his face will become weakened.
So there is only one path.
And that path is the path, which we enter Islam with,
as the same path on which, on the basis of which we enter Islam. When we make our declaration of faith, say a shadow Illa Illa Allah law, why should Mohammed and Rasulullah I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship of Allah, and that Muhammad was a messenger of Allah.
That second part of that declaration of faith is our commitment to that path.
And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a messenger of Allah.
What we are committing ourselves to
is that the way in
which a law has prescribed for us is the way of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.
And no good deed,
which we could think of doing
has any value, unless it is in keeping or in conformity with the way of a civil law some along it was and then
of course, there is another condition for that deemed to be acceptable to a law, and that is that it is done sincerely, for the sake of a law. Because if we are doing it's only ritualistically, as a cultural hand me down, you know, without any life, any spirits to it, is spirits of belief of submission to a law, then of course, it has no value, but
one cannot just cling on to the spirit, and say, I'm not going to follow
the external, you know, what is important is the Spirit because it is what determines whether a deed is accepted or not ultimately, but if that deed is not in conformity with the way of the province,
then it is also not accepted.
So, it is like the nuts are the seed and the coating of the seed like
this, the essence of that seed is the inner parts, but the coating, the covering protects the inner parts, you cannot do with one or the other.
you plant the seed without the coating and dies. you plant the coating without the seed, nothing's coming.
So, the two have to be together.
And a lot of tells us commands is in the Quran. And so many verses where I personally will be happily Elijah Meaghan will
hold on firmly to the rope of Allah, all of you and do not become divided.
The command is for unity
and the rope of Allah.
What is the rope of Allah, even mustard said, Indeed.
The rope of Allah is the book of Allah.
And its path The path is inhabited by devils and they call out all slave of Allah calm, this is the path in order to prevent people from the path of a law. So hold on to the rope of the law and that is the book of Allah.
This is the core of the path This is what we are called to hold on to. And of course, when we hold on
firmly to the book of Allah, because you will have some people say, we are holding on firmly to the book of Allah. And we're not interested in the Hadees you know that we can't really rely on Hadith but we are holding on firmly to the book of Allah. This is this guidance, because in saying that in claiming that they are not holding on firmly to the book of Allah, because the law says in the Quran, when they use the arrow tool for cuddapah law, whoever is obeyed the messenger has obeyed the law. Am I talking was reserved for Hulu madhok, Monsanto, whatever the term is giving you take it, whatever he has forbidden you leave it, how can we follow and know what he gave us? How can we OBEY
Him? If we're not following the Sunnah and the head which is brought to us and so holding on firmly to the book of Allah to the rope of Allah, which is the book of Allah means holding on firmly to the Quran, and the Sunnah.
And we have well known Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, in which he said similar things, where he said for example, in a narration narrated to us by Abdullah live in a bath, the straight path
is that which allows messenger left us on
and the walls are seldom said, I have left among you two things.
If you hold on firmly to them, you will never go straight. The Book of a law and my direct to FICO membrane, intimate sex to me Hema, lanta de la vida, kita, boo la persona T,
the Book of Allah and my son.
And of course, the understanding of the book of Allah itself
depends on the sadhana. Allah said in the Quran, one Gemini lake and zakra the tuba in Allah nathie, Medusa, La La him. And I've revealed to you the reminder the Quran, so that you may explain to the people who Mohammed Salim may explain to the people that which was revealed, for them or to them.
path is one of holding on firmly to the book of a law and to the sudden law, which the book of Allah commands us to follow.
problem as I sell them, saying, whoever amongst you lives on after me, we'll see many differences. So you are to stick to my son and the son of the rightly guided caliphs after me, hold on to it with your molar teeth. And beware of innovative matters for every innovation is the DA
stick to my Suna
and the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs after me. So problems I send them has stressed that in understanding his Sunnah,
we must also hold on to the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs, who came after him. The rise of the guided talents being primarily
the leading companions, his leading companions, that generation, that the leaders of that generation who lived the revelation, the Quran was revealed amongst them, the problems are seldom lived amongst them.
He was the example.
And one of the scholars of the past even macpaw had said
the first generations remained united on this, altogether united upon closeness of the hearts and agreements of methodology. This is because the book of the law was their protection. And the son of the Prophet sallallahu. wasallam was their mom, their leader.
They did not use their own opinions, nor did they turn to their desires and understanding and applying the religion. So the hearts of the people who are a part of this remains safeguarded with a loss protection and the souls remain shut off, from the whims by our laws help.
And they allow Have mercy on him. He indeed spoke the truth for the religion of Allah is only one without differences.
This is the straight path. This is the one path which needs to a law. And this is in contradiction to all those who would call us to a multiplicity of paths, whether it is in a general sense and you will
hear people saying, All religions are one.
There's one God, and all the religions are one. They're like spokes on a wheel. And Allah is the hub. So it doesn't matter which one you follow as long as you're sincere, as long as you sincerely follow. So whether you're a Buddhist, whether you're a Hindu, whether you're Christian, Catholic, Protestant, you know, whatever, you are Muslim, it's all the same, as long as you're sincere, just be sincere in your belief in God, and that will take you to God. Of course, this is rejected.
Allah did not reveal many religions. There is one human race
with shared characteristics,
spiritual, physical, psychological, emotional, shared characteristics,
a lot of sense profits, with one message. He didn't send them with a variety of messages. As I said,
well, aka Basner frequently omitted rasuna and Yahoo the law, which then
to every nation, a messenger, calling them to worship Allah alone, and to avoid the worship of false gods.
one human race.
One message brought by the messengers, there are many messengers, because, of course, human race is spread over there. So a number of messengers were sent, but they all carried one message, meaning they only brought one religion, as I said, in the Drina, in the law in Islam, the religion in the sight of a law which is acceptable to a law is Islam, nothing else.
So all of these others are misguidance. No matter how sincere people may be in following them, they're sincere in misguidance.
There is only one way to ally and that is Islam.
Islam as was brought by Prophet Adam, Prophet Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, Muhammad Sallallahu, Alayhi, wa sallam and all of the other prophets. So we don't even know their names, they brought one religion.
And whatever exists in the world today of other religions,
these are deviations, these are corruptions manmade
ways of life, which are not in keeping with the message that was sent by a law to humankind. So if there is only one religion,
there is only one religion. And all of these other religions are false, there is not more than one way to realize just one way similarly, that one religion is itself.
One, not with many different paths, we have Shia Islam.
And the Shia Islam could be boring Islam. Or it could be other funny Islam. Or it could be you know, Imani Islam, or whatever, all the different versions.
No problem homosassa. Left behind one Islam. His companions understood one Islam.
And that is the Islam that we need to follow. Even the issue of the schools that we live today, where people follow different schools of law,
if these schools of law are looked at, as efforts of the scholars to try to
understand and to apply the Quran and the Sunnah, that one way, which is what it was, this is what Abu hanifa was doing. This is what Mr. Malik was doing, this is what he was doing. This was what Mr. McAfee were doing. They're all trying to apply the Quran and the Sunnah
to life, daily life, the wording of the laws apply and trying to help people to understand how to apply the laws is what they're doing. But where people turn these now intersects
where people will actually refer to their mother
Have as my sect
which reached the level where as I've mentioned before in lectures, you had four different prayers going on around the Kaaba.
It's reached that state of deterioration, where Muslims conducted four different prayers for each prayer in Mecca.
On the time for salaat came,
those people who are making tawaf, who are Maliki's, they would line up when the van was oxygen was given the car was made, they would line up behind the Maliki Imam, and they will finish their prayer. When they were finished, then the Sharpie mom would stand and all the shops raise we're making so often come in line up behind him and pray and so on behind the Hanafi. And behind the humbly
Muslims had reached that point, reached the point where in the Hanafi madhhab, it was ruled that it was not permissible for a hanafy to marry a sharpie.
Is this, what the prophet Muhammad SAW send them left behind? No.
This is not what the pastor said.
This is something of people's making. People made this people created this.
This was not the religion of a pseudo lasala. This is misguidance misunderstanding.
And if you listen to the statements of the scholars, the early scholars with regards to this, you will see that this was not their way of thinking about, for example,
Mr. Malik was asked, I heard one of the students of Mr. Malik said, I heard in my Malik and Imam, a lady who was the Imam in Egypt, both say the following concern the differences amongst the Sahaba people say there is leeway for them in it, but it is not. So it was a case of wrong and right rulings.
People say there's leeway meaning doesn't matter which of this ABA, you follow? No problem. No, those Imam said no, somewhere right and somewhere wrong. And if you know what is the right and what is wrong, then you must follow the right.
That is your responsibility.
I have another have Mr. Malik students said Mr. Malik was once asked whether one was safe to follow a ruling related to him by reliable narrators who heard it from the companions of the process I suddenly replied, No, by Allah not unless it is correct. The truth is one can two opposing opinions be simultaneously correct? Your opinion which is correct, can only be one.
So when we look at issues of schools of law, etc, we have to look at them in the light of right and wrong. We cannot say they're all correct. And this is a common thing we will say you must follow Amanda.
If you don't follow Amanda, your mommy shape on a common phrase, you hear this most people are very much into love. So much so that I remember reading in one book, where the author put said that, you know, when moon Karen, Kia will come and ask you in the grave, what is your religion? What is your prophet? What was the religion you followed? And he will also asked for my book, and what was your must have? The light fabrication, Li You know, because people are so locked into this thing.
But the reality is that the schools, every one of them contain errors. They were the efforts of human beings and as such, they're imperfect. So for anybody to say, I am going to follow this one blindly. This is a person who has not understood Islam.
The only person that we follow blindly is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that was the Shahada. When we said what I said to Adnan Mohammed Al masala, that was our declaration, stating that we would follow Mohammed wa salam blindly.
if he told us to do something, and we didn't understand the reason behind it, we would still go ahead and do it.
Any other human being tells us to do something, we need to know the reason we don't just go and do it blindly. No, we ask why.
Try to find out why. Now, there are things as Prasanna told us, which Allah told us, where the reason is discernible, we can determine it, or Allah has mentioned it about Salah has explained why.
But there are also certain things which they have told us to do, and there is no explanation
No explanation given. So why do we do?
This now comes to our belief. If we believe that the law is a law, and that Mohammed Salah was the Messenger of Allah, then we will follow their instructions, even if we don't understand why
that is submission. And that submission is only due to a law.
We do it toward the messenger saw seldom has told us because in doing it to what the messenger told us, we are doing it to Allah, not because we're submitting to Mohammed Salah No.
That is a mistake to think that we are submitting our wills to Mohammed Salah No, we are submitting our wills to a law. We submit our we submit our wills to a law by following what Allah has said in the Koran, and what the law has said through one element his Sunda because the sooner the Hadees conveyed to us. Revelation, as the law said in the Koran when Mayan took one in Hawaii, in Hawaii law, Washington, you have he did not speak from his own desires, what he told you was revelation which came to him.
So that's why we submit and then submitting to our processor has told us we are in submission to a law, my rule of law, whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed a lot.
So when we look at the
instructions with regards to following the Sunnah, and the way of the prophets, I send them and the companions, we find
a number of Hadees, as I mentioned before, where we were told to follow the way of the buffalo Salaam and his rightly guided caliphs to avoid innovation, etc. And at the same time, we find in the practice of the Sahaba, themselves, you know, an opposition, they said to any kind of disagreement amongst themselves. We find, for example, disagreements where people are going to opinions and not following the sooner we find for example, a statement or
even Zubair or WA,
once said to even above,
will be unto you. You are sending people a straight, you're instructing them to make ombre in the 10 days before hatch.
And there is no ombre then O'Meara is not permitted them
to live in a box,
said to him, Go ask your mother.
Go ask your mother.
And he said,
Abu Bakr and Omar, they didn't say what you're saying. And they have more knowledge of allowes messenger and are more and they are more firm in in keeping to a simpler than you are. If my boss replied. So this is where you are coming from.
I tell you what a lot of messenger has said.
And you come to me with what Abu Bakr and Omar said
will be to you.
Are there are they more preferable to you? Or what is the last book and the Sunnah of His Messenger
which was left among his companions and his oma.
I see them falling into destruction, I say allows messenger said and he says abubaker and Omar forbade
even on the level of the companions themselves, some of them based on knowledge which they had they made certain decisions. And in the end, what do we do with those decisions? For example, you know, Omar Allahu anhu. He ruled that the stating of three divorces
one after the other will be held at three divorces. But problems are seldom said when a man came to him and said, I divorced my wife the number of times there are stars in the sky. He said that's one divorce.
He said that's one divorce.
This was the sooner
the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah when he said follow my son and the son of the Holy Father Rashi Deen. He didn't say follow my Sunnah and
A rightly guided challenge, because we had four, but he said the rightly guided caliphs meaning what they all agreed on not what one or two held but what they all agreed on.
we are obliged to follow what came
in the Sunnah, which was agreed upon by the followers of the Prophet
and the following and the understanding of
Islam is what the Quran and the Sunnah was, is the understanding which they held, as a law said,
Well, my you Shaka Rasool embody Mata by Allah Buddha, one Lima two one was the jahannam wasa at masirah. And whoever opposes the messenger, after guidance has been made clear to them, and follows a way other than that of the believers, I will leave him to his choice, and place him in how an evil and
and follows a way other than that of the believers.
Who was that verse referring to when it was revealed?
It was referring to who are the believers, then the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
following away, other than the way which they went, they followed, that is misguidance guaranteed misguidance. And in another narration of the asylum, in which he said, that
the Christians would be the Jews will be divided up into 71, sex, the Christians into 72, sex, and he said, You and my nation will be divided the 73 sects, he went on to say, and only one is in, in Paradise and the competitors asked him, which one is that or messenger of Allah, and he said, the one which I am on, and you are on
the one which I am on, and you are on.
understanding the way of the Prophet masasa
is through the understanding of his companions,
not according to how we in our times, may interpret things, you know, for example, today, one sister came and asked me about wearing niqab that she had decided to wear in the pub. And her parents were both
British religious people, they were opposed to her tooth and nail. The father was saying the mother it was from the point of view of marriage prospects, to say, Well, you know, if you were in the club, then how are we going to find somebody to marry? Right? Nobody can see you, nobody.
It was her rationality, you're looking at it more on the emotional level right? Marriage, whereas the father was saying, no, this niqab is Arab culture.
It is from the Arab, you know, cultural practices is not Islam.
In fact, you are being extreme and wanting to do this.
This is the modernist understanding
and you will hear it echoed.
The point is that the wearing of the niqab was done in the time of Putnam. So it's not to say it was compulsory for all the women, it was compulsory for his wives. Because their case was special. They could not marry anyone after problems as alimony died, to help to remove any possibility of people developing any kind of feelings and desires for them and vice versa, etc. They were veiled from the people in general, but they were many of the women who are around problems themselves while they also covered themselves wearing the niqab, etc. And this is why you can find in the Hadith concerning Hajj were prophesied Solomon said, you know, for women, when they were going for Hajj,
that they should not wear a niqab or gloves. The fact that is telling them not to a niqab meant that they were wearing niqab that it existed amongst them. So it was a part of what was approved by the province
and it is something commendable, it is something recommended, something which is love not only approves of, but also honors, right? So to refer to it as being Arab culture, this is misguidance and this is
modern interpretation, right. And, of course, there may be aspects which were we could say, localized the idea of wearing black. Now wearing black, we cannot say that the religion says women should wear their wear black, that this is what they have to wear, that is that was common to Arabia, that was the preferable color which they use. And as people from Arabia, Muslims spread to different parts of us in that land, they carry that with them. But in reality, Islam does not prescribe that a woman wear black, it could be brown, it could be green, but whatever the colors are preferable, though, there are darker colors in the sense that they should not be eye catching, like
bright yellow, bright red, you know, flashy flowers and colors. And, you know, because the whole idea of trying to discourage, you know, people staring and being attracted and things like this is lost by, you know, wearing garments, which become equivalent to the garment that you're supposed to be covering with your outer garments.
So, these kind of interpretations, you know, these, we have to be aware of, and know that the only way to interpret and to understand the signal the problem
is to understand it as the companions had.
And we have
an example from the life of Imam Ahmed
who was jailed because of his
opposition to those who are claiming that the Quran was created
under the law was everywhere.
In any case, he was brought before the Calif and he debated with one of those who are promoting these deviant ideas all the time.
And he said to the person when the person was the representative of this innovative innovative views, he said informed me about this latter which you are calling people to
Is it something which allows messenger called people to
his claim to the crowd was created allies everywhere? Could you find any howdy? Is there something in Hades that apostle Sallam said this to people come and believe this?
The innovator said no.
That often isn't something that Abu Bakr Siddiq called people to after him
Osman or Ali
So he said,
So when is something that neither allows messenger nor aboubaker? nor Omar not with my nor Ali? May Allah be pleased with them all caught up, yet you are calling people to it?
It is not then unreasonable for me to say that they either knew this matter, or they were ignorant of it. Either they were aware of this, or they were ignorant of it. If you say that they were aware of this matter, yet they remain silent.
Does that make sense? That they knew this? This is the correct belief Karaka understanding but they remain silent.
It is obvious, obviously wrong. And if you say that they were ignorant of it.
But I know it,
then a wicked son of a wicked one. The prophet SAW Salaam and is rightly guided caliphs, were unaware of something yet you and your friends know about it.
And oh, this is the claim when a person innovates in the religion, whether we introduce in celebration of the prophet SAW Selim his birthday, you know, or whatever other innovative practice celebration of the, you know, the new year with the Hydra, you know,
New Year's celebrations,
are they these are the kinds of celebrations that people have introduced amongst themselves. What In fact, are they saying? they're claiming basically, that they know something that the prophet SAW Selim and his companions didn't know.
they knew about it and they hit it.
One or the other, but Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said syrups to syrup to Kamala Mahajan, basil, lane Hakuna Heidi ha, Leia de vida Illa Holic, I've left you on a clear white slate, whose night is like his day and no one deviates from this except is destroyed.
The religion is clear. The Knights of the religion is like the day of the religion not
Night and day. Usually we use this as a metaphor for the opposites. The nights, as this thing is like, the difference between them is like there are nights we say.
But in Islam, there's no difference. The day is like it's night. And whoever deviates from this path is destroyed.
This is the clarity. This is the religion of Islam. And somebody may say, Okay,
I'm not trying to bring anything positive didn't do. But what I'm doing is something which is good. It's a good thing. We'll call it
a good beta. Right? Because, you know, it is good for us to remember salatu salam on his birthday. You know, this makes us closer to a law, you know, reminds us about a law reminds us about the message the promises abroad. So this is a good thing. How can you say, we shouldn't do it? And it's a good thing. Well, farmers, as Alan said, Matera crochet and caribou come in a law in lower America can be, I have not left anything, which will bring you closer to a law without instructing you to do it
is added, meaning that you cannot find anything today, which will bring you closer to a law, which didn't tell us to do if you found something, it's not bringing us closer to Allah. That's what this means. The Justice Mr. Malik said, on the day, when the verse was revealed, and Yama XML to the convener comb,
right today, the religion has been perfected or completed for you. He said, whatever was not religion on that day, had never be religion.
But whatever was not a part of the religion of Islam on the day when that verse was revealed, can never ever be religion.
That is the correct understanding. And this was the way of the companion to the problem of
how would you find
a law saying in Surah
Nisa, fourth chapter, verse 59,
a lot of there says, or interessato CCA for doing a lot.
In quantum took me Nola Billa, he will Yeoman aka Danica hiren, Sonata Wheeler, and if you dispute in any matter, then return it to a law and His Messenger, if you indeed believe in a law and the last day
that is better and more suitable for determination
where we have differences where we have different opinions, etc. And this is not true. We as human beings will never escape differences, differences will remain amongst us, but the question is, how do we resolve our differences? What do we do with this difference?
Do we say you have yours and I have mine You go your way I go mine
as described in the very beginning, describing those who
have become like the kuffaar
has been the Mullah de him para Hoon, every sect or every group is happy with what he has he goes his way you go this way I have mine doesn't matter you can do whatever you want to do. I
know a law tells us here that when we dispute we have to take it back to Allah and the messenger. This is the way in which we resolve the differences amongst us now.
We do have a number of different organizations which function within the Muslim world today.
Whether it's Jamaat e Islami, timetabling, one muslimeen mercy movements wherever we are a bunch of different groups, and these groups have leadership's and the leadership's call people to make bail out to them.
To give oath of allegiance to follow, follow them
you know, all the time.
come hell or high water they say you follow
the Sunnah, the way of the companions was that they are was only given to the halifa
the head of the Muslims not to any
Khalid Pathan who pops up
he says I've got a group I got the best way they are to me and follow my way.
There is a Heidi narrated by Jose for even a livan.
He said, the people used to ask a lot messenger about the good. But I used to ask him about evil, lest I should be overtaken by it is had these inside Bahari
So I said O Messenger of Allah, we are living in ignorance and in
a bad atmosphere, then a law brought us this good Islam, will there be any evil after this good? And he said, Yes. I said, Will there be any good after that evil? He replied, Yes. But it will be changing.
I asked, what will be obtained? He replied, there will be some people who will guide others
not according to my tradition,
you will approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of others. And I asked, Will there be evil after that group? And you replied, Yes, there will be some people calling at the gates of hell.
And whoever will respond to their call will be thrown into the hellfire. And I asked or messenger of Allah when you describe them to us. He said, they will be from our own people, and will speak our language. I said, What do you order me to do if such a state should take place in my lifetime? He said, stick to the JAMA, the main group of Muslims and their email
was that the ruler halifa ameerul momineen. So I said, and if there is neither a group of Muslims, Muslims are all scattered up splinted up into all these different countries with nationalities and everything else.
nor an Imam Al Khalifa, to whom all of the Muslims can rally. He said, then 5000 Kill Kill Farah kakula, then turn away from all of these sects.
Even if you have to bite the roots of a tree to death overtakes you, while you're in that state.
This is the guidance. This is the statements of rasoolillah summarize.
What is this telling us in practical terms, it's telling us not to commit ourselves to any organization
which seeks to divide itself from the mass of Muslims.
This is what it's telling us. It's not telling us don't organize, don't try to do things in an organized way. This is the discovery Islam center here. You know, don't stand up and say, Hey, we need to close down the center. Now you guys are No, don't do anything. No, this is not a group seeking to divide itself for Muslims. I am the director, I'm not calling people to make baotou me, okay, this is just a means of organizing our activities. We come we go I come other people can come You know, this is not, it is just an organization to try to do things in an organized way. That's all. But where that organization transforms itself into a movement, where you now have a leader who
calls people to give the oath of allegiance to him. Who are now you're going to follow and then you start to look at people who are not a part of your group with the what they call the us and them mentality. You know, the us and them mentality. If you're not with us, then you're against us.
Looking at people with doubt, because what we're on this is the right thing. Anybody who was not with us making the bear along with us, they are off.
And you hear that in ignorance. You have some people will say when they do their Islamic work, they call it fiza Viva La
the path of Allah we're on the path of Allah. So you might be going to make Jihad and they will ask you
have you gone officer de la?
Rosa, did you go out for 40 days? I mean,
hey, hey, you know, there have turned 40 days now into feasibility life. You're not
Doing these 40 are not supposed to be the law, this is guidance.
This is this guidance,
the way of the Prophet monosol salaam and his companions, that is the way what they understood FISA means a lot to be that is reasonably the law,
the way in which they conducted our conveying the word of Allah to the people, the non Muslims, the people in their communities people outside because that is the way to do it.
And any other way is doomed
to failure, failure, not necessarily meaning they will have few followers, because an organization may have millions and millions of followers, they will be very huge and you know,
is the issue one of numbers.
If the issue were one of numbers, then we would have to say
Muslims are straight
because they are not the majority in the earth. And we will ask, since Islam is the right way, why aren't the most of human beings Muslims?
Can't argue from that point of view.
If most of the Muslims are going to the graves and praying to the saints, and only you guys wahabis you know, Ali had these, you know, any other what they consider to be a dirty name they could throw on you, right? You don't want to go to these shrines, you don't want to honor the saints, everybody else is doing it.
It's an issue or numbers that we'd have to say they are right.
So the issue is not the issue of numbers, there's never been an issue of numbers, the issue is
concept, if the concept is correct, even if only one person is following it as a law referred to Prophet Ibrahim as a oma all by himself,
the whole of his people everybody wears either watch me he alone was off
and he was right.
So, it is important for us to consider the way
the way of Prophet Muhammad SAW
that that way, was one way
there are no two ways about it.
Of course, within that way, there may be
variation in the sense that in prayer, one may raise one's hands to the ears
or one may raise one's hands, shorter heights of masala did both. So, within that way, there are there is variation and wherever parmesan Solomon's given us variation, we are free to follow any of the variants. But in the variation, there is still one way because even though we may be following some of the variants, each one of those variants represents a part of that way.
So, my brothers and sisters, let us reflect on how much or to what degree we are, in fact following that way.
Knowing that it is the only way to Allah, it is the only way to success, it is the only way to paradise.
inshallah, that is the or that is what I wanted to share with you this evening.
If you have any questions now, we can look at your questions. And hopefully the questions will be on the topic, you know, where we can further elucidate that way we can further reflect on the way
Okay, our brothers question
that some people say that those who are calling to what has been labeled as Wahhabi ism
or anti Hadees ism, you know, that is basically those were saying what I just finished saying
follow the Quran and the Sunnah, as it was understood by the companions of the Prophet Moussa Salah, and this is also referred to as the way of the seller, seller meaning the pious predecessors, the early generation of Muslims about whom Protestant and said hydro Nazi corny, the best of people are my generation
salmela de la luna home some melodien A Luna home though then those who follow them, then those who follow them. So, they say those people
who are calling to this way,
they do not represent the JAMA or the main body of Muslims, for the last hundreds of years, the main body of Muslims are those who go to the graves, pray to the saints, you know, blindly follow the mud hubs and all these other things. So, this is evidence that those people calling to this way of the seller have deviated.
this is not the case.
The way as we said was not in terms of numbers, the Gema doesn't necessarily mean the majority of Muslims. It means those who are following the way of the Quran and the Sunnah as it was understood by the Sahaba that is the Jamaat, even if that ends up to be one person, two people, three people, that is the Jamaat
what is the
State President in Egypt when he gets elected,
this is what time is another type of work that some groups claim they call it, Shadow
guidance, and they say that this is only to get guidance.
these are close to the author discussing, our brother mentioned that there are other Olds which are being given.
Perhaps the most significant of them is the old switch. Some organizations
refer to as the oath of guidance, they actually earshot. Right? That people when they make their oath of allegiance to the leader of a movement or a group, it is an oath to follow their guidance. Again, there is really no distinction. This is actually the way of the mistakes, you know, to solo. The Sufi Soviets who had the peers who had their followers make their day out, this was the battlefield shot, that they must know blindly follow their check the way that Moosa was supposed to follow Heather.
This is what they're saying. You should be to your share, like Moosa was supposed to be to Heather, this is a actual shot. But this is nonsense.
That kind of blind following
is due only to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In fact, in the time of the buzzer Salaam, when he sent out a platoon,
and the leader of the platoon
went off, he had a nervous breakdown or whatever. And he told the people in his platoon to gather up sticks and to make a fire.
And when they gathered it up, made this big bonfire. He's told them right into it.
He was there a mirror, he told them right into it.
And they said, Hey, we joined Islam to get away from the buyer not to go into it, you know, their reviews. So when they went back to the zoo, Lhasa lemon, they asked him about it, right? Or this case, he said, if you had written into the fire, you would have never written out.
In other words, you made the right decision. You don't follow your Amir blindly.
Don't follow him blindly. The only one we follow that is that way is a pseudo law, so live and sell them. So this so called they are totally shattered is a an extension of the Sufi Bay, which demands of its followers blind following which is in itself a bizarre innovation rejected by Islam.
A friend who is a non Muslim says that God exists within everybody. How can I refute her? Well,
ask her about those people who go to hell.
assuming she is a Christian, believing that there is a hell.
What about those people who go to hell
that means then that's a part of God.
being punished in Hell
is crazy. God is good. You know?
How then can you justify punishing a part of God inhealth fosway if she is a Hindu
who believes that the soul the Atman is Brahman is the universal soul, it's one of the same thing. You still have the same similar concept that that soul due to its karma will suffer. Right? It says, done bad, and it suffers. So you're basically saying again in this life not in hell because they don't believe in hell, that you suffer your Hell is in this life, a part of God will suffer in this life.
This falsehood misguidance
I read that it was the opinion of someone is a harbor that covering the face was followed.
I've never read that.
And that the meaning of shoreline zarrab, according to their view,
could you clarify this surana?
Well, we need to know which verses are specifically referring to
is this the verse who asked the question is is the verse on the jilbab?
whoever asked the question, can you confirm which one you're speaking of?
the point is that the covering of the face was not held by the early generations of Muslims and Muslim scholarship, etc, to be obligatory.
Women in the time of problems
did not cover their face.
Although at the same time women did. They both existed.
There are enough studies to confirm this. And the final hedge of the pants are solemn, in which
he was riding on his capital, was a bit about sitting behind him.
And a woman
got up to ask him some questions about Islam.
And while she was talking to him, she noticed he knows props as well. And notice that her eyes were looking towards fuddle that one was sitting on the back of the bus. And he turned and looked at fabu. And he saw he was staring at her.
So what would those who say it is compulsory for the woman to cover her face do at this point, they would have said to the woman, woman, cover your face. Because the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim ation the other said, whenever we're on Hajj, whenever men came near us, we used to take our outer garments and shield ourselves from them.
what did the prophet SAW Selim say? He didn't say anything. He just turned his head.
He turned his head and he continued to speak.
He noticed she was still looking and father turned his head again, turned his head again.
This is a companion of the Prophet.
But the point is that his action in dealing with it is clear evidence that the face is not compulsory, covering the face is not compulsory. And of course, those who try to argue, of course, they're not disappointed.
They tried to argue it's from logic. They say, well, the most beautiful part of the woman is the face. So if you're covering up everything else, but the face, that's the point,
the logical arguments, right? So
we say, as Olive Angela who said, if the religion was based purely on logic,
then the bottom of the socks has more rights to be white than the top.
When you're making blue, and you're going to wipe your socks, it makes more sense logic to wipe the bottom than the top. Because you walked around and it's the bottom look under cheese.
When we're making the whistle, and what we'll do, we're watching the path of our handlers. Getting involved here is, you know, Father, we're cleaning. So logically, we should wipe the bottom of the sock, not the top. That he said, I saw the Messenger of Allah white, the top and not the bottom.
we say to them,
You argue that the most beautiful part of the woman is her face?
What is the logic in covering the rest of it except her face?
We can then ask you, what is the most beautiful part of a woman's face?
What is in her eyes? And you are showing her eyes? Because Oh, now you say that you will cover everything including your eyes. And then what is she to do?
Say even those who claim you have to cover it is compulsory. They're still showing the eyes the most beautiful part of the razor there. What is the point?
They don't go the rules of logic. Let's go the rules of Howdy.
If we have had these to support, then bring the hobby. If we don't have it, then submit.
Do you believe that Mohammed Al Salam is an ordinary human being like us.
To not believe that is to go against the Koran itself.
to not believe that Mohammed wa sallam was a human being like us, is to go against the Quran itself. Allah says in the Quran, holy in NEMA, an abortion room, Miss Lu, se or Mohammed.
Indeed, I am only a man like you all.
So for anyone to say, Mohammed Salah wasn't a man like us, that is going against the clear statements of the Quran. Of course, the verse goes on to say
the same for the cinema and a bathroom is lo que hace la la la comida. But the difference is that it has been revealed to me revelation has come to me, this is what makes the difference, not his humanity, as a human being he was a human being like the rest of us.
Meaning that the fabricated,
had these spurious invented IDs of those who claim that a law before he created anything is light shine. And from his light, Mohammed Salah was created.
This is a lie. This is false hood. And from this light, according to the Shia, it split into it was Muhammad, wa salam and Ali, the light split into two. And then they have their own story, right? This is, these are lies, these are lies. Allah created the world, and he created the human beings in it. Some of those human beings he revealed to them, what he did not reveal to others. Those are the human beings we refer to as prophets. And this is what separates them from the rest of human beings. They made mistakes, they're human beings, they were not free totally from error.
question, Are you trying to imply that one should not cover the face or that it is not compulsory?
I think it's probably quite clear that I'm only saying it's not compulsory. I said already in the title of problems or love. It was compulsory for the wires of the prophets.
Some of the Muslim women, they covered their faces also.
And it was something commendable, something which is praiseworthy, and I even gave me the example of the father, who was opposed to his daughter covering her face and that this was wrong. on his part. It was a modernist interpretation. No, of course, not covering the face is something commendable. A woman is rewarded for it, if she's doing it, not because it's the style.
Not because it's the style, and for example, in Saudi Arabia, where women are all obliged, Saudi women are all obliged to cover their faces. So women are waist up, women are wearing the covering of their faces, because it is a cultural imposition, not because they believe it in their eyes. So those who do it, they're doing it they're not rewarded for it, because they're only doing it because of force on them. So covering the face a woman choosing to cover her face. This is something commendable, allow will reward her if she's doing it out of humanity, trying to avoid stares of men, she wants to be more anonymous, whatever, these are good thoughts, these are good intentions and she
is rewarded from it. It is part of the sudden now it is not something which is our culture. It is part of the Sunnah and
Something which Islam recommends, but does not hold compulsory.
Fast for death is given to those who attends is it feast for death feast. a feast for death is given to those who attend the funeral after the dead person has been buried. A friend told me that this is deviated from the teachings of the Sunnah
they can then can one say that the feast is held just to say thanks for those who attended and helped in the funeral is this wrong and distorted point of view, it is not from the sun Now, while the parents are instructed, if a family
loses someone, a loved one from the family, then the community the neighbors, those who are close to them, they are encouraged to prepare prepare food and give it to them.
Not to go and to hang out in their houses, right. And to oblige them to go and cook and they're suffering, they're suffering, they're suffering and now they have to go cook up all this food and prepare for all these people not know Casa de la instructed the companions that day when somebody died should give to that person because they're breathing their suffering, help them by giving them food, and they are allowed to do this for three days right? Morning.
So this is the sun now. We don't need to cover feast, you know, we've had somebody die, we're going to have a feast to as they say give thanks to those who attended the funeral alone is is obligatory on them, they get they get reward for attending the funeral we have to reward them now with food. It is not from Islam
as many rounds as possible, or sometimes the person who is very likely
Okay, brother is asking about what is known I guess in Pakistan, and India as Quran honey. When a person is
has died, people gather people together that night after Isha and they divide the Quran, they have the crime divided up into different Jews, and they give for each person one, and they all try to read it. And of course, they're all reading one on top of the other and not for the insult, like one's reading and everybody's listening to it. But there are really one of the answers to the whole sort of mumbling and kurama type of Quran and all those kind of things, okay. So they do this, they tried to do it as many times as possible, you know, to an after the reward for this be given to the dead person. This is
this is innovation in Islam. It is not from the Sunnah at all. It has no basis in the Sunnah at all. It is innovation. It goes against the instructions of the Quran, when the Quran is recited to listen to it, first and foremost. And then the idea that somebody else not related to this person at all, can do a good deed and say, give it to this person. This is not in keeping with this. So now the pastor Solomon what he taught us, he said, when a person dies, they're cut off from all good except from three channels. Either they have given sadaqa, which is of continual value, right? continuing charity, or they have passed on some knowledge, which continues to benefit people, so they continue
to get reward from it, or a righteous child
didn't say a friend.
Somebody in another country altogether has been paid or whatever. A righteous child who prays for him or her.
That benefits them. Why? Because that righteous child is from the deeds of that dead person.
if the parents was corrupt, to the bone,
they died in a state of corruption. But their child found Islam and found true, right. the prayers of that child for the parents, will it benefit that parents are not this is questionable.
This is questionable.
Because that child was not the product of that parents.
Just as when prophet new son, right, refuse to get on the boat and drowned.
And he said it's my child
to a law law said it's not from your work.
It is a bad deed.
Different that's a different direction.
Child and grandchild same thing, when it when it when it says a pious child it means anybody down the line who has been a product of the work of that person.
Praying for the dead, right? To go to the grave and to ask Allah to forgive this person is beneficial. We can do that. This is what we are doing in salata. janazah we're also praying for that dead person. So it can benefit them Yes.
We have the majority, we cannot be you
know, saying that some of the deviant groups, they claim that above us and have said there would never be ej ma
of the deviance. So therefore, since they are the majority we must be the deviance.
Those who call to the way of the companions
the prophet SAW Selim said,
lions 10 euro or leitich 10 year old Mati Allah, Allah Allah, my nation will not agree upon misguidance
has the nation agreed upon misguidance?
Yes, there's a big group that holds this misguidance and they're they're agreed upon it, but the whole of the oma has not agreed us our existence is proof that the law is there.
That is the proof of it of misguidance.
So, but if you look amongst us all, there are things that we all agree upon. We all agree that five times daily prayer is required. That is the HMR and that is the one which is guidance.
Okay, so what do you want to do with this? No.
Okay, I rather say here that he has a Hindu friend
who becomes an untrustworthy witness, who told him that he has researched the various formulas for drinks, etc. And he found that in the excuse me,
He found that
in the formula for Pepsi and other products, Western functions or whatever, that in their secret formula, they use pig's teeth.
So what should we do? Well, as I said, first and foremost, it's well known that the secret formulas are called secret formulas because they don't reveal it. Okay, so he doesn't know what is inside there. Okay, and just the story. He just tried to shake you, he did. mess with your mind. You know, what are you gonna do now?
So don't worry about it. Just
Excuse me sisters, please. Why is there another conversation going on there? You know, if you have a question, please ask it. If you feel you don't have any more benefits to take from our presentation, then don't disturb the others please.
Because nowadays, we are Muslims require leadership on the land.
So, for a common cause for the benefit of Muslim one person is not enough to form a Jamaat and restore jihad,
then we have to choose a leader. Okay. Okay, so one, once we choose a leader, we have to follow the leader. Okay, and maybe mostly is used in jihad. So we have to follow the leader blindly, because his decision is final decision, and we can't convert it.
Okay, brother, that's saying suggesting that in certain circumstances, like
where today, we have to form groups, and we choose the leader, the Amir, and we need to follow that Amir blindly. Because in the case of jihad, you know, we can't be second guessing the Amir etc, etc. I mean, and this is the position of the American army.
This is the position of the American army. If an officer tells a
grunt, the main person, foot soldier to do something, and he disobeys a command, that is considered to be
treason, you know, punishable, you can be put in jail for it, you can be all kinds of things that you refuse to obey a command. Right. So this is the this is the explanation they gave for the My Lai Massacre, which took place in Vietnam, right, where the commander told them to go and kill all the villagers. And when they did it, because the commanding officer told him to do it. Some of them felt good, right. But at the time, they had to obey because we're in jihad. I mean, there wasn't there. There they go Jihad Of course, but there they looked at it as being a righteous fight in that thing, so they have to do it. But didn't try mention that the Amir told his followers to write into the
fire and they refuse that is the answer. We don't follow him blindly.
If he commands us to do something which is clearly against the book of Allah we disobey as well. So as Alan said, la tele mahalo in female theater.
followers, they will not know many things.
For example, there will be new
Well, if they don't know what Islam is, then better they go learn Islam before going to do jihad.
So they don't go out there and get themselves killed over the wrong thing with a wrong belief. You know, this is the point we're doing Islam does not call to blind following except in the case of rasulillah Yes, you should have deer obey your Amir you know, in the case of jihad, as long as he does not command you to do something which you know to be against the teachings of Islam.
okay. Brothers question, since most people is it was this your question? I was gonna read it next. This years regarding following the for piracy moms, Imam Shafi mom, hanafy, is that yours? Okay, so as we also have the law, they were great scholars of Islam, and I've done a lot of research on the promises of life. I don't think following any one of them is wrong, though they may differ, but they all taught the way of the process on them. The difference may be because the process of them did things in all these ways. Well,
I don't feel that following one of them is wrong either. However, if one follows them blindly, that is wrong.
This is where the wrongness lies in following them blindly. They themselves forbade it. They themselves were opposed to it. They themselves and their students studied under everybody who was available, gathered all the knowledge they could and they change their opinions according to knowledge as it came to them. They are the same ones that will hanifa in my mind.
They both said it was a holiday for woman Hubby, the Hadith is authentic, that is my true must have. So as long as we're following, meaning that the scholar who we studied under follows a particular madhhab. And we stick with that, based on the knowledge that is coming to us, no problem, as long as evidence doesn't come to us to the contrary. Because if evidence comes to us to the contrary, which shows us something else, that something that we're doing is wrong, then we are obliged to follow that evidence. And to at that point, say,
No, I'm going to follow my mother hub. Even though I clear authentic identities in front of me, I have no reason to doubt it. That is misguidance. That is the essence of misguidance. Because guidance is following Rasulo law, so I was on them. That's what the amounts were calling to. That's what they strove to do. But if the law becomes as you refer to it as a sect,
right, not the School of Law, but he said, then it is dangerous, as I explained to the earlier that the the ruling in the Hanafi madhhab at one point was that it was not permissible for a hanafy to marry a Shafi was that Islam?
Was that Islam? Should we follow that? Or at one point, all of them have agreed that they should pray different Salas different times? Was that Islam?
If we go to the masjid in Damascus, still today, you can find the big mustard in Damascus and the other boxes in Syria, many of them they have two metal rods, one for HANA fees, and one for Sharpies. Was that right? That they would have to Salas? No, this was misguidance. This was this was deviation, and the scholars of the time promoted it in ignorance. So the point is, that what we are required to follow is Rasulullah saw on Sunday, we have to depend on scholars.
We can say yes, we must follow Koran, and soon as it was understood by the Sahaba. But we as individuals may not have the knowledge or the ability to go back to the sources and get that information. But at least we have it as a concept. This is our goal. This is what we want to do. Now whoever is available as a scholar to teachers, that's who we follow a visa. hanafy is a sharpie, whoever he is, he's teaching us to follow him. We follow what he but we also follow him with an open mind meaning we don't just ask him Can I do this though? He said do it don't do it, did it? He's telling us, you don't do it, because we look to Lhasa and said so and so you may do it because the
pastor Sam said so and so this habits and so on. So he's teaching you with knowledge, not just giving you do don't do you can you can't without any kind of understanding. You try to get that understanding.
This is the point that we tried to do it to seek knowledge, not just
blind instructions that we just follow. He said don't do it, we don't do it. Why? And if we asked him why did you say we shouldn't do it? And he said How dare you ask me
you know you're What are you have you ever studied in school?
Or have you studied now sorry, do you know do you have this kind of knowledge? Can you understand what I have to tell you just do what I tell you.
This is the wrong this means this is assigned to you leave him go find somebody else who is willing to explain to you to the degree that you can understand you have the right to ask why. And this is a kind of mentality which you can find which has even gone beyond even the mother I mean I know myself personally when I studied in Medina we had doctors there many of them came from different parts of the Arab world. But you know when you went to see the doctor you check you out and everything else that he wrote over prescription tablets.
What is this for?
you asking me this question for
Do you understand medicine? Can you upset the you dare to ask him what his bills were for? You know, this is a kind of a mentality where you know, because I have this he was just follow it blindly. Don't ask any questions. This is not Islam doesn't ask us to do that. We have the right to ask and find out. Okay, so it gives us some explanation which is above our head. Okay, tell us
what that means. We have the right to ask, and we have the right to get an answer. So when we approach in this manner, and it doesn't matter if we follow one school or another school is no harm. What is Sellafield? Any therapy is not a school because a person may be selfish.
Be unsharp maybe celery and hanafy maybe celery and and the idea was celery is just an approach, a concept that we follow Quran and Sunnah as it was understood by the Sahaba. It's not a guru, there is no person who can pop up and say, Well, he is the founder of the Salafi manga.
The founder of the Salafi manga is Rasool Allah Zaza.
He is the founder. He's the one who spoke about Salah. It mentioned in his ID, his companions spoke about Salah. So that term that concept existed from his time, can we say any of the companions of the past or celebrities
or Japanese Americans?
So we know that is a later development, their intention when Imam Abu hanifa was teaching his students do you think he was in his mind plotting, I'm going to be making this making this my top No. And I want these people to be following
that he was just teaching the name. He taught the religion, those who stuck with him, they took from his knowledge and they passed it on and it came to be known as the Hanafi madhhab. It came to be known. This was not his intention taken with him. This was this was their attentions, people made it now into something, you know, very restricted very, but the reality is that Abu hanifa, his main two students, Mohammed Al Shivani, and Abu Musa, both of them
studying under Mr. Malik.
In fact, one of the narrator's of our motto is Mohammed Shivani.
The more problema Malik, one of the main narrators, whose narration is recognized as one of the proper narrations of the water is Mohammed Rashid Malik, they studied under a mathematically studied under the other scholars that existed at the time. And furthermore, it is recorded from them that they differed with Abu hanifa in more than 50% of his rulings.
I will have a first position was that if you
if you, you couldn't wipe on your socks,
as his position was not permissible to happen and sauce, but but
we use them for mama Shivani they took the position that you could win the nominations came to them.
So the point is that even what people call the Hanafi madhhab. Today is not necessarily the opinions in all areas of Abu hanifa. Some of them are, many of them aren't there are compiled ation of scholars, you know, throughout the generations that came, some of them are accurate and correct and improve on the mother. Some of them are inaccurate and incorrect. And this is in the case of all the matchups The point is that we cannot say that any man have represents the totality of Islam. They were human efforts. And as such they have human failings, meaning there was right in them mostly, but there was some error. All of them, including those who are within the four as well as those
outside of the four because there are many other scholars, leading scholars, for example, a mom and late
Sharpie who studied under Mr. Malik for 20 years.
went to Egypt went to to Iraq study under the students of Abu hanifa
wrote a book when he went to Egypt. He wrote the book, they're called alhaja. Then he went to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the students of a mom life, he changed his mind and many rulings and opinions after changing them after going through Iraq. right because very when Mr. Maliki had certain positions, he went to Iraq study on the students of Abu hanifa, changed some positions, wrote a book combining her job, he went to Egypt studied all of the students of a marmalade because marmalade and dye by the time he got there, change his opinions again, wrote a new book called alone
changes. That wasn't considered to be anything wrong. No problem with it. And in fact, after studying under marmalade students, he said, you know, a marmalade was a greater jurists than Mr. Malik.
But his students who are weak cause this month have to be lost.
So just because again, people think the four A's were the great game of hate. The others were great amounts just like them. Mr. Sharp is in a position of course you and I sitting back. We're all in a position to say yeah, my belief was greater than emotion, because these are people on another level, but the mama Shafi was on that level, he studied on the both of them. He could say he said that the marmalade was a greater jurist, and Imam Malik
but we don't know who knows him. I'm glad that we have your enemy mumbling lately.
What is this?
But the point is that it died out. We don't even know about it anymore.
Actually it was absorbed by mon Shafi. The basic, you know, the unique rulings were absorbed Imam Shafi and became a part of the sharper image anyway.
Since I've never called himself a Sunni, then is it wrong for us to call ourselves Sundays? Well, the use of the term suddenly came up when people started to distinguish themselves.
In a when they became, you know, Shiites became too in order to distinguish and say that, yeah, I'm not a Shiite, the term Sunni came up. So it was only used to distinguish between Sunni and Shiite, to distinguish that you are not from the Shia, but Sunni Muslim, we are Muslims, Israeli Muslims and others.
If he was an ordinary human, like us, The Mamas or salemme have a conscience. And did he need to reason out and make judgment between good and bad? Yes, he did.
He had a conscience like us. And he did reason out. In fact, he made some errors in his reasoning and a lot corrected him in the Quran itself.
And we have record of him also in the Sunnah, making some reasoning about some of the things of this life, the dunya things, and him finding himself incorrect by a laws will allow clarified whatever wherever he made had incorrect reasoning, a lot, made it clear, so nobody would follow his line of reasoning. And it become misguidance. But instead of law corrected it, showing that he was a human being, and at the same time, maintain his son as guidance. But former felons, salado janazah conducted in the same way, as far as
well, at the time of the Sahaba prayed separately.
This was a situation which caught them.
They sort of didn't really know what to do.
the narrations concerning how they did this or how the janaza? Actually, to be sure. I'm not really searching. But I have a vague recollection that they had prayed somebody
said something that maybe can be researched? And the answer we gotten.
In any case, the janazah, what is required is what was our solemn promise.
He taught us a particular way, which is, you know, gathering the people with the rows and the number of years and what to be said he taught us all of that. And that's what we have to do.
What is your idea of a particular number that is being recited in relationship to the sphere Fatima
which is proven?
I don't know why this thing so hot a lot 33 times on the law, for example, awkward at times or, and the fourth 30
of the 100 time, saying the nylon will actually color the whole milk.
This is from the sun.
The idea of doing it on beads, we can say this is against the sun. Now, the sun knows to do it on the fingertips. This is what the Prophet Solomon his companions did.
Anybody prescribes to ice doing any numbers, you know, in terms of how many times to do this beer, how many times with family and these kind of things, we do not accept it, unless it has been stated by pofma. Only he has the right to give us numbers. If you personally on your own, decide that you know, you want to recite the spear, you know more often, right because there is a narration where the companions who didn't have money to donate to the jihad. They mentioned that the richer people were gaining reward and we were losing out on it.
And above all Sallam prescribed for them a similar set of tests via and he said that with doing that you will get a similar reward except for those who do more. So he left it open for press wants to do more on their own, they can do more. But once you
I've done more. This is your own personal thing. The fact that you did more and what you were seeking from a law came true or came through you cannot now go to people in touch to prescribe for them that you do this many and this is going to happen don't have the right to do it. It's not like medicine. You know, you try this one out. You try that one out. This one works, okay, this views this you will get recommended to everybody else. No, Hamza Salim is only one who has the authority to give us numbers.
If there was no trace of Mohammed sauce on them from before.
How come the previous divine books spoke about the coming of the last problem?
The previous divine books spoke about it because Allah revealed to the previous prophets that Mohammed Salah was coming.
The books before the profits before they all warned about that job. Does that mean that the job was existing before
Allah revealed to them that the job was coming? So all of the profits warned about the coming of the job?
If the crime came as revelation to him, what about the Hadees Hadees also came with that revelation. Nowhere is it said, How had this came? Yes, there is, is your insight Bukhari. It explains in the first chapter about how revelation came, please pick up the books I Buhari and read and find out how revelation came. How did you know from beginning to end, how to do practical things in life. He knew it by Revelation. Revelation told him what to do, what not to do. Some things were left he made he had he made the wrong he had a law corrected him, you know, confirm the right way. But whatever was taught to us of the religion, this was all through revelation from Allah, do you believe in the
night of knowledge, the problems are seldom really make a journey to see what drove them. They haven't been to hell reported this to us or wasn't just a dream, it really took place.
We believe that.
In the night of Mirage, he was taken on the Iraq, from Mecca to Mecca to Jerusalem. And from there he was taken up in the Mirage actually, the Mirage is the vehicle which took him up into the heavens, His ascension into the heavens, it wasn't to see heaven and hell that also happened in the process. But it was to take him up to the highest point in creation, Allah communicated to him directly there revealed to him certain verses of the Quran and prescribed Salam during that period of ascension. And it was a means of also comforting him because of his sufferings that he had gone through in that same year, where his wife had died. He had been rejected in five you know, so he had
suffered a number of losses I will call him also died and didn't accept Islam. So Allah took him up. Part of that was also giving him relief giving him a surety strengthening him for the rest of the message to come.
I think inshallah we'll stop here, somehow Nicola Homer will be humbucker shadow Allah Allah and and start Furukawa
