Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu wa alayhi wa sallam who are an NB Hill Karim. Allah He follows Salah to attend Tasleem rubbish Ronnie saw that he was silly Emery hanok that him in Disseny of Kaho Kohli, my brothers and my sisters a sin Mr. Na kumara to La he will war broke out. Today inshallah Tada is Sunday November the 21st 2021. And in sha Allah Tada will be the last of our essential thick class in sha Allah Who Tana we've been doing this book for the last let me see actually I didn't even check to see how long we've been doing this book for but we started a long time ago and kind of life has been a few years
you know what I made the mistake of not putting the dates when we used to finish our class. And so I couldn't really tell you but it's been a couple of years now that we've been studying this, this book since before COVID. So a good two years inshallah. And today we come to an end of this chapter of studying essential thick in sha Allah Who to add, but before we do, we have to go through this last chapter on judicial proceedings. Okay, judicial proceedings proceedings.
judicial proceedings are sanctioned, of course within the Quran.
The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and there's consensus among scholars of the deen Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, what convey you know whom Bhima ends on Allah wa Subhana which Allah says and so, Judge, telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so judge all Mohamed between them by what Allah has revealed. So judge between the people by what Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed. And Allah Subhana Allah tells that Buddha has said I'm in Surah Assad verse number 26. Yeah, we'll do in Jan, Connie fat feel autumn we've
been in CB how Allah Subhana Allah tells the Buddha Allah He said, I'm odo Verily We have placed you as as a successor on Earth.
So judge between
between the people, there's a there's a mistake in the translation here. So a judge between the people in truth and justice, okay.
Also, I'm an email us or the blogger and narrated that he heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, if a judge or ruler, if a judge decided a case and strove to determine the correct ruin, then if he were correct, he receives two rewards. And if he strove and was incorrect, he receives just one reward.
And so there's benefit in
doing this sort of insti had this sort of, you know, work in trying to judge between people and trying to help them and assist them in what they're going through. But at the same time, we need to be very careful of possibly doing what could be wrong. And so we stay away from that, and we try our best to please Allah subhanho wa taala.
There's an interesting like,
glare on the side of my head or shade right, like a shadow.
Kamala, and it just makes my head look weird in the camera and it's just really throwing me off. Hum, but a lot. What is the ruling? Okay, what is the ruling with regards to judicial proceedings?
Islamically it's a communal obligation. The ruler or leader of the land, whoever is in charge is given the ability to do so who is given the ability to do so must appoint judges in the land to judge between the people and we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam judged between the people as the leader of the Muslims. During his time he also sent earlier of the Allah and to judge between the people of Yemen right. He was a judge for the people of Yemen, and also the Hoda Urvashi doing that came after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Bakar, Myrna Ali Abu Bakar Ahmad Earthman and Ali are the Allah and Han you know, they also were judges upon the people and they also
appointed judges in different lens Okay, so they also were judges but appointed judges in certain lens that the Muslims ruled at the time
So it is something that the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam took care of, and appointed others to look after like Alioto the Aloha and being sent to Yemen, and also the whole of Russia doing Abu Bakar or Omar Earthman. And earlier the Elijah and him were appointed or were judges as in, they acted or served as the judge of their time as leaders amongst the people. And they also appointed those who were responsible enough to take this duty in other lens that they were sent to that the Muslims ruled at the time.
What's the benefit of delayed and Miss rude or the Aloha and said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there is no jealousy except with respect to two people. There's no jealousy, except with respect to two people. So we're not allowed to be jealous in Islam, except two times right, in two instances or two cases. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there is no jealousy except with respect to two people. A person whom Allah has given wealth, and he uses it up for the sake of the truth, and a person whom Allah has given wisdom, and he decides by it and act accordingly. So two times that we're allowed to be jealous as the prophets on Allahu Allah usnm
says, the first time is when someone is wealthy and uses that wealth for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the sake of promoting goodness and the higher of the deen and we are jealous of them jealous, in a good sense not jealous as an evil jealousy and I want destruction for them no jealous as in, I wish I had the ability to do what they are doing. So when we talk about jealousy in the dean, it's not jealousy from the angle of
an evil conniving sort of feeling where I want you to be destroyed. And I don't want you to be recognized for what you do know, jealousy as in a wish and desire to be just like that person. And so the first is as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions jealousy from the one who is wealthy and uses their wealth in the way of Allah subhanho wa taala.
And the second case, is jealousy.
When we see or recognize a person who Allah subhana, Allah has given wisdom to, and that person decides by it and acts accordingly, as in they are given wisdom, and they use that wisdom and live by that wisdom accordingly, right. They don't abuse it. Sometimes we see people who we think have wisdom, right? I've noticed this myself. Sometimes we see people who we recognize and we respect them, we look up to them, and we feel that they have wisdom. And then we see that they're doing something differently behind the backs of others, or as soon as they come off the stage I've heard and I hate to say this, but I've heard people sometimes in front of others saying one thing and
doing something totally different. And this is where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you already know and we Lima taco, Luna Latifah alone. Are you who believe why is it that you say that which you don't do? Don't say things that you're not going to do? Don't be one person in front of others and be another in front of another group of people. All right.
I will go to the reported that the Prophet sallallahu I'm sorry, I will be right or the lower end reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, judges are of three categories, three types of judges, one in paradise and two in hellfire.
Okay, this is of course, aesthetically, this is the way we see judges are of two stories. First category of judges.
Sorry, three categories, right judges are of three categories.
One in paradise two in the hellfire.
As for the one in paradise, it is he who recognizes the truth and judges in accordance with it. So that person recognizes the truth and they judge accordingly. And we can take the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with Fatima or the Allahu Ana, where he says that even if she had done something he would you know, place the penalty upon her, as in she would be charged accordingly had she done something wrong? This is the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained to the people at his time that I would be honest and just even with those who are most dear and most beloved to me, right like Aisha about the Allahu Allah or sorry Fatima out of the Olga
and her, his daughter, okay, the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says once again judges are three categories one in paradise and two in hellfire as for the one in paradise it is he recognizes the truth, and judges accordingly, and judges in accordance with it.
As for the one who recognizes the truth, but he is unjust in his rooming, he is in the hellfire, and the one who judges among the people with ignorance. He is also in hellfire. So these are the three types of judges, one of them is in Paradise, and that is the one who recognize the truth and judges accordingly. Right, is honest and truthful and trustworthy, and judges accordingly.
The second one is a person who recognizes the truth, but is unjust in his or her ruling. That one is in the hellfire.
And the third is the one who judges among the people
with ignorance, it's not even may not even be qualified, pretends to be someone of high status. Someone who plays you know that term, fake it till you make it, right, you fake it, you ain't gonna make it, you might make it in the dunya video make it in the Hereafter, right? So Don't fake it till you make it be truthful, be honest, be trustworthy. That is the way of the believer that is the way of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah as
you know, servants, those who submit to Allah as diligent.
Alright, the prohibition of seeking judgment should we want to be in these positions of leadership? Should we seek out positions of leadership that are commanded in Sonora said, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, oh, man, in summary,
do not ask for the position of authority. If you are given it due to your request, you will be entrusted with it on your own.
If you are given it without asking for it, you will be helped in it.
So don't seek positions of higher authority, thinking that you are able to do it or feeling as though Yeah, I can do it. If that's the case, you'll do it on your own.
But if you are appointed, you are chosen. Basically, if you're chosen by the people to do this, this job this task, and feel that you are worthy of it. When you need help and assistance, the help and assistance will be there, you will be helped in it. And Allah subhana data will bless you in that position. Now, of course, federal judges, and I'm doing this for the sake of completing this book. As I mentioned earlier, Inshallah, tada, this will be the last of the essential thick classes in sha Allah. And then, possibly in about two weeks, we will restart a new class on Sunday nights, I have something in mind. But if you have any suggestions, feel free to reach out into message me with
regards to the suggestions that you might have for this class. I do have something in mind. But hey, I'm always open for you know, suggestions and Shaw longtown.
Of course, the judge needs to have good etiquette. I'm not going to go through all of that, because, you know, we're teaching etiquettes and we know that it's important for judges to have that you know, set of manners and good moral, good morals and values. It is forbidden for a judge to accept bribes or gifts. So if you're put in a position, and remember, it's not just a judge, maybe someone comes to you to people come to you to help them in a dispute or help them in something they're going through in life. They might be arguing amongst themselves or some sort of dispute between them. And you know, they come to you to seek advice. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us to
tell them what is right for them and don't just tell them what they what they want to hear, tell them what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. And so it is forbidden for a judge to accept bribes or gifts I believe and I'm narrated that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, The Curse of Allah is upon the one who gives a bribe and the one who takes a bribe.
Say that again. The Curse of Allah is upon the one who takes a bribe. And the one who, sorry, the one who gives a bride a bribe, and the one who takes a bribe but not a bride.
So long Sunday
go homemade a Saturday, Saturday narrated that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said gifts for the state employees is theft.
Gifts for the state employees is theft as in they are not allowed to receive that. They should not take anything that may change their judgment, change the way they do things. Okay. Don't receive gifts from
The people where you may, you know start to do things differently because of that person or those people and who they are and what they've given you.
It is forbidden to give a judgement while angered, have domesticated armor said that he heard that Armin even be Bukhara say I will Bukhara wrote to his son, who was in suggests then saying, you should not judge between two people while you are angered. For I've heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say a judge should not decide between two people while he is angered. Judge should not decide between two people while he is angered and the last thing that we'll look at in shot along data is the sin of one who claims something that does not belong to Him. aboda Radi Allahu and narrated that he heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say,
Whoever claims something that does not belong to Him, is not from amongst us. And he shall take his own seat in the Hellfire Buddha by the Allahu and narrated that he heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, Whoever claims something that does not belong to Him is not from us. And he shall take his own seat in the hellfire.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect every single one of us and bless us with goodness and higher and Baraka. That brings us to the end of an over two year journey going through this book. Can you imagine over two years of studying this book together on Sunday nights Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from every single one of us, grant us goodness, and higher and Baraka, forgive us of our shortcomings. Put ease and tranquility in our minds and in our hearts, and lots of Hannibal watada, fill our days with Noah and fill our nights with Nora and bless us with the strength and ability to continue to learn his Deen Allah subhanho wa Taala that increase us in knowledge and ask
ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to have mercy upon every single one of us and grant us complete and full forgiveness for our efforts and our sacrifices and our time, and our patients in seeking out the dean of a law as Zoa jet. I mean
so once again, that brings us the end of our
I would say over two years, about almost two and a half year journey of going through the chapters of essential fic.
And I'm open for suggestions. I'm open for
you know, any sort of advice that you might have. Forgive me I'm a little bit out of energy today. It's been a it's been a long week.
And it's been a long day as well.
And so any suggestions, any questions anyone has feel free to you know, chime in. If anyone wants to share something, please feel free to do so. It's nice to not be the only one always speaking to himself because you see me so you are someone else's looking at the screen but I see me so that's me and this is me.
And that's me and that's me. And I'm me everywhere
hamdulillah so any can we do to see it have a surah I was doing to see it for a number of years on Friday nights and we switched from Tafseer to
to the etiquettes right Kitab al Khattab added on Friday nights, we do advocates, right? So to see okay, that's one option on the law, we could do a more in depth to seal class.
That that's always something that we can do any other suggestions a new shade has joined the new Shea we're asking for any suggestions. We've completed our essential fit class, which we've been doing for over two years, almost two and a half years Hello, we finally completed the book. And so if there's any suggestions that you have, I know a new Shay is one of our core
community members, one of our core community members who not only herself but her whole family is involved in hamdulillah
So any suggestions that come from anyone? We will accept? And?
Yeah, so can we do sort of class swole?
Solid Dean, we could do a solid Dean, are you referring to also the dean or solid thick? Or solid Hadith? Or solid tafsir? Which soul are you referring to?
I mean, it varies by mean Sokoloff into the classroom to you as well as data bless us with the ability to implement what we've learnt any sort of effect. Soon effect is not a class that you just, you know, you need to learn. It comes it will sort of fit that is mashallah Tabarka law, right.
You know, the scholars talk about what sort of effect is one of the most challenging most difficult subjects to study. It isn't easy, and it isn't something that everyone in the community is going to grasp. That doesn't mean that we should not teach it, but I don't think this is the platform for that. Right? To see it as a good suggestion that if you want to learn Sula, Dean, I was thinking, you know, I have I mean, my degree isn't a sort of Dean, Dara and it was sort of Dean and I was thinking to teach the principles of faith,
principles of faith. So like a faith one on one, where we go through topics of Eamon and Cofer and shirk, what is considered right upon the deen What crosses the line? What is you know, Tawheed and what isn't, you know, understanding ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada more knowing what we are allowed to do, knowing what we are not allowed to do in terms of ADA in terms of do or up in terms of how we submit to Allah subhana wa Tada I think, and this is what I was, this is what I was leaning towards doing and will most likely do, even though I'm accepting all of your advice.
I strongly feel that we need to learn more.
Sort of deep. The foundations of our deen right. That's something that's very important for us to learn what sort of the classes going on with shaker some already on Thursday nights hamdulillah Hamdulillah? I haven't seen that televised or broadcasted or anything, but if it is, it is humbler no no worries there.
So who feels like we should learn Fula Dean for those who don't know what sort of deen is is basically the fundamental principles of our deen and and taking actual examples of what is halal and what is haram? What we are allowed to do what we are forbidden to do with ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala and towards Allah subhanho wa Tada. All right, good humbler VEDA thinks that's good. And O'Shea says Salaam Alaikum in waves. That's a great suggestion. So I'm warning them.
Okay, you're in with the sola Deen. Very good Hamdulillah I think too many of Sierra
we should start a Sierra class as well. But not on Sunday nights. Not on Sunday nights in sha Allah.
Okay, so maybe we will start a Sierra class as well. Maybe Sierra will be after fajr
No, let's not do the after fajr classes, as is too much days are so long from early morning to late night and you guys like expect us to be full of energy and like jumping off the walls and stuff.
See a lot of the Sahaba Okay, so that's a good suggestion. Very good humbler? I have two books on my desk about the biographies or the
Yeah, like the Sierra of some of the Sahaba about the alloga and home that I was going to turn into a mini series maybe we will do that inshallah. I'll look into that as well. But I'm leaning more towards the Sunday night being the class that we usually do for adults keep in mind that the class on Sunday nights is usually for adults. And so I usually like to keep it a little bit more of a higher level of understanding where we can go through things and be very frank and very open
and and learn some things about that in shall log data.
Suggest books about the long run the the actual series this the video series titled Arma is a very good series to go through the I would suggest that you watch that if you haven't already. That's a very good series and was put together very very well and humbly law. And I enjoy have gone through the series I think two times already.
With the entire family and it's a very good series on the law.
high level Arabic as well. But you can get it with the subtitles in English. All right, that brings us to the end of our class does Akuma logo Hi Iran, I will I will send out a message on social media on my whatsapp, sorry, on my Instagram and on my Facebook and in sha Allah hopefully on YouTube as well to let you all know of the new class and when we're going to be starting it. So keep an eye out for that and shot a lot of data. We'll try to keep the timing the same.
I'll try to keep the timing the same to after
or on a Sunday evening in sha Allah.
And yeah, we'll take it from there. All right, Xochimilco Farren bark Hello fecal, or some along with senemo Baraka Natalina.
