respected Allah elders and brothers.
We begin by praising Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala
that has brought us together on the basis of the kalama La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah and on that basis has made us all brothers unto one another. They will not lie in the Holy Quran says enamel Muna Hua, fastly Cobain awaken, all believers are brothers unto one another.
We send salutations upon our beloved nebia Kareem sallallahu alayhi wasallam were always throughout his endeavors
taken the greatest amount of effort and emphasize bringing people together on the basis of a column Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. This was one of the primary objectives and efforts of our beloved Navy aquariums and Allahu Allah wa sallam brothers, we are you know, in as Advil Sharif so I got to be very careful to this is seen as Advil Sharif, when you give you a call for service, that normally when you go to other places, you get a perfume or you get an air freshener, you get a tabbies and you get a test B. So yeah, it has to be very careful with regard to what I say, but be as it may, may, Allah subhanho wa Taala make the discourse beneficial to me and beneficial to
yourself. Brothers, Allah subhanho wa Taala has created each and every one of us different
and that Allah has created as different in our appearance, in our, in our features, in our capabilities. Allah has created each and every one different.
And it is amazing. And this is one of the creative
beauties of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the miracles of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala that sometimes the most we can say with regard to a father and son, over three God, two twin brothers, that they resemble one another. But from the time of Adam le Salatu was Salam. Till the day of Tiamat, Allah has created every human being distinct.
And Allah has created each and every one different.
It is part of the creative miracle of Almighty Allah, that not only Allah has created all of us different, the fingerprint
of each and every person is different from another person,
the fingerprint, and now you think in the small thumb, how many permutations Can you have? How many different permutations Can you have in this one small thumbprint but Allah in the small thumbprint has made every person's thumbprint different from the another person from the time of Adam Allah salatu salam to the day of comet.
Therefore la semana who Allah in the Holy Quran, when he tells us about resurrecting human beings, he says is insano Allah najma sama Bala tada Irina Allah and Moussaoui Anna banana. I will bring people back to life, to account for the deeds and not only what I bring you back to life to account for your deeds, I will bring you with the very same fingerprints that you had in this world.
When Allah Allah says that, when our Katerina Allah and Musa we are banana, it is a very powerful statement that today we can appreciate it, perhaps more than previously because allied saying I will bring you with your same features, the way you were in this world.
And today, not only our thumbprint and our fingerprints is distinct from every other person. Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the inner portion of our eyes different from every other human being throughout the history of humanity.
There is why today previously used to have people who use fingerprints, to distinguish from one person to the other. Right. And people who are all will remember that when they couldn't sign they used to put up their thumbprint, a fingerprint. So they say there was one person who used to go to school and he was not doing too well. But his father was a doctor, and his father was a surgeon, and a very great professor. So, you know, when he, when he used to bring back his report, the father used to put the thumbprint so your son used to say, But Father, you are a professor, you are doctor, why don't you sign the document?
Why don't you sign the document? Why don't you put a fingerprint father said I am ashamed to the people must know that I am your father.
When I try to say Allah is made everyone today you go into airports, they recognize you by the inner portion of your eyes. The reason why I'm making mention of This is despite the fact that Allah has made each and every one of us different. Even within the oma Allah tala wants us to be like one
Allah is greater each and every one is different in our appearance in our features, in our in even the aspect of our fingerprints, the inner portion of our eyes, but yet Allah wants us to be like one I mean una cara jewel you hid the entire body of all the believers throughout the world. I like one single human being. Despite the fact that making each and every one of us different. Allah wants us to be like one inch Taka, Taka, colo. If given one portion of the body pains, it's impossible that you can have a year a coil, a toothache and the entire body will not feel restless. Allah despite the fact that he created each and everyone different. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to be like
one like one single human body that's how the believers are supposed to be. And in this particular regard, we are supposed to be so one in United.
Don't take my word for it. In the words of acid Maulana Yusuf sobre, la Li the son of monona Ilia sobre la to LA Li, who used to say until the Omar does not become like one, Allah tala as a systems will not come upon the soma.
Until the oma does not come like one another systems will never come upon this.
And is to say in a time of Madina, munawwara in the time of nebia, creme de la la wa sallam he was they were 10,000 people in Medina, then every one of those 10,000 people had the support of 9999 people. No one ever wished him ill or wished him evil. That is why there was success in the time of Madina munawwara in the time of Nivea cream salsa.
And until we do not read that situation, there are various reasons why we disunited I'm not going into the reasons but until we do not come to that particular situation, in the words of the son of Manila, sobre la la, Allah as a systems will escape us You will never get a letter as assistance. They can be no two views with regard to the importance of unity. You do law here, Gemma, the via Karim saw slim said Allah hen is upon the United lat for a Nell Baraka tamale Yama, Allah blessing is upon the United lat. I'm not quoting myself I'm quoting the stains of our beloved Nivea cream sauce Allah. Allah as hands of assistance is what the United lot unless Baraka is what the United
lotter until we are not united, we are not going to get the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we are not going to get the blessings of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And in this particular regard, we also while we talk about this, we talk about the opposite. The opposite is when we add this united, then Allah subhanho wa Taala as assistants go away from us, we become weak. ally in the Holy Quran says what are known as our don't argue in dispute with one another. For tough shallow waters habari hukum you will become weak and you will become cowards. So today our strength.
Today our strength is more shown to our own people than other people. Perhaps it is a sign of disunity that we have become weak and cowards. That we can show our strength within but we cannot show it without or outside. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says do not become this united Allah will take away your strength. And this is the reality because we are this united look at where the strength of the Muslim is. In the world our words of our beloved nebia Kareem salsola. Osaka a sale, you will become like the scum on top of the floodwaters. And this is the reality and therefore in the words of many of our great grandma. They have
spoken about this one Abu Hassan Rahim Allah in His magnum opus in his very famous book, in with regard to the rise and falls of nations, he had said, I will never ever believe that many of the empires of the Muslim past and the glory of civilization was lost because of weakness. It was lost because of this unity. It gives the example of the Mughal Empire and many other examples, the same one I use of sobrato lolly whom I quoted, he in his last Byeon recorded by and few days before his death, he spoke passionately about unity and spoke about the oneness of the oma and brothers if you have to hear those bands, and you have to hear the warnings within what regard are we had sounded
about disunity. It is enough for us to start opening and start thinking about this and doing something with regard to the aspect of creating unity. He says that he says that according to me to create this unity in the oma and this is his words is more severe
than discarding Juma Salat.
Creating disunity in the oma is more is more severe. I'm not quoting myself. When I used to say Abram clearly said, creating disunity in the oma is more severe than discarding Juma Salat. Now, many times people will say there's different definitions of unity. And we have to remember that unity doesn't mean that you unite with everyone all of that, I understand. But the point is, given the importance with regard to unity and the endeavours warnings against this unity, if Nicosia Rahmatullah alayhi wa sallam was on his way to go and go and tell the people about the precise night of Laila to Qatar when two people are fighting,
and because of the punished business of people fighting Allah tala lifted that particular knowledge away from this modality of gamut. And he said, this is the arms of fighting, that Allah Allah, Allah, Allah has mercy goes away. And we can say, what is unity? What type of unity? What is the definition, who all of that on displays, but given the importance, and given the warnings, we have to be more careful with regard to seeing we are not becoming the cause of disunity. Because in the words of Hadith, via cream sauce, Islam says that a time in the day of Tiamat, Allah will forgive a person and he will say Allah, why are you forgiving me?
And Allah will tell him, oh, my Banda. One day the oma was at a crossroads. And you said a sentence to prod the oma together therefore I forgiven you.
You are on the verge. Omar was a crossroad. You said something and you brought the oma together. And Allah will put a person in Ghana, and he would say, Why are you putting me in Ghana? He said at a time when the oma was at a critical point. You said a statement that you
do live in Sweden. I will conclude this portion of this of the talk by saying one thing about a beloved theologian who said, What an amazing thing he said. He said the difficulty you have in creating unity.
And I you know, this is such an important point, the nub of so many of our understanding of unity and disunity when he said, the difficulty you have in creating unity.
That difficulty is far less than the difficulty that will come upon you because of this unity. To create unity is very difficult. You have to tolerate, you have to bring people together, you have to listen to a lot of things. But that difficulty is far less than the difficulty that will come upon this Omar because of disunity.
Now, this is something that we each and every one. Sometimes there is difference. But as far as I would like to say to people who are common in laypeople, we must see to it, it's our responsibility that we do not exacerbate the disunity and exacerbate any type of further disunity in the oma
putting things on social media without verification, just talking about someone without any particular type of evidence, it's responsibility of each and every one to see that to his extent, you can sometimes control what is happening throughout the world and for the community, but you can control what is within you, what are you doing to see to it that there is unity and see to it that you do not do anything which will create further disunity. See to me that you do not do something and there is something that you can do, you and I we can do that. Can we take that particular commitment that each and every one of us will try to our utmost to bring about unity and brotherhood
between people in shop.
Now one point that only comes in is the aspect that what do we do with regard to people who are different have different opinions.
And this is such an important point because this is a reality and whether we like it or not
It's something that morning Abdullah also spoke about throughout throughout wherever you go any Muslim community in South Africa or any other way people are always asking you, but manana Allah differing professionals are differing, what do you and I What do what must we do? common question whether we want to accept that question or we don't want to accept that question it is now on the lips of everyone wherever I go, for example, people always bring up this aspect. Well what do we do? Now let me just give you some examples and let me tell you what what for example we can do. Firstly, Allah Allah has created people and everything Allah has created people don't removing it.
at will, or the created the heavens and earth, walk the love for Allah cinetic who Allah, Allah, Allah created different languages, Allah tala created different colors. It is the beauty of a Latin illustration that he created different colors. If you go into a garden, you go into the Rose Garden, right? And you see one type of flower and one color flower, will you find greater joy in that garden? If there is one color, flowers of one color, how will you find greater joy? When these flowers have different colors, hopefully you will see when these different these flowers have different colors these more in a similar way. Allah in our minds, our mental capabilities is also
the sign of a lateralus creative power the way he has created different colors, the way he has created different flowers, the way he has created different languages, he has created each and everyone's minds different. He has created our thinking patterns different He has created our intellectual capabilities, Allah subhana wa Taala has created it differently. And just as an orchard is more beautiful with a beautiful flowers and the different color flowers we have the intellectual world becomes more stimulating by different opinions that you have by different people's intellect coming to the fore. So when there is difference of opinion, sometimes what it brings is it brings
different solutions to the fore. It brings different opinions to the into the to the open. And that is part of the beauty. Instead of looking at it in a negative way. It is part of the beauty as it Mufti Mahmoud sobre la la, in his most beautiful GitHub is the lava mud, you know, and if the left Omid and who do they still have something of that sort, but it's also been translated in in English, he makes mentioned he said complete unanimity. And complete consensus can only happen in two occasions. I want you to listen to this. Complete consensus can only happen when people don't have intellect. And people don't have an opinion. That's one. And the second thing is when they don't
have honesty and integrity. So complete consensus will happen according to Mufti Mahmud sobrato. Early, when he said there are two things either people don't have intellect don't have a thinking capacity, and they don't have honesty and integrity. So if they have intellect, and they have thoughts and they have opinions, then you will have different thoughts, different opinions, so there will be difference of opinion. And the second thing he said about honesty and integrity and this is very important. Why do you say honesty and integrity? The reason is, sometimes you have an opinion. Sometimes you have a thought, you feel that this thought is good for the oma but you are dishonest
or you are frightened to
say that thing because of you don't have honesty and integrity to tell people this is my view.
Whenever there is people of intellect and people of honesty, there's going to be difference of opinion. And this is very important. So therefore, let me tell you, let me tell you from this from the words of what Monique
said, if for example, they are allama or they are organizations who feel strong strongly about an issue
and they feel strongly that the benefit of the oma is in this
or they feel that given the situation we find ourselves in interacting with people. This is what we feel is we have tested is what we need to do.
Then it will be dishonest.
It will be disingenuous for them
to remain quiet because of the fear of pamphleteering.
It will be disingenuous and dishonest for them to keep quiet. If they feel the need to do something which is in the public benefit or the benefit of the oma because of what they see the highlight of the woman said it would be dishonest for them by
Words of Mufti Mahmoud sobre la for them to keep quiet because of fear of what other people are going to say.
This is the reality with regard to so diversity in opinions in religion not from I'm not talking about the laypeople I'm talking about the Ummah and the learner, then I will come to the to the alarm and the laypeople also. Now, this particular aspect that there is going to be difference of opinion in religion on sub divisional issues, not on fundamentals, not enough data, not on beliefs. There there is no scope for difference of opinion in fundamentals. Therefore, I read once about him awantipora coolala Esalen an amazing thing. He said, If someone comes to you and say
I am a prophet after Nivea cream sauce, salaam Eliyahu Bella, or there is a prophet after Nivea cream sauce. And you ask him, What is your delille? What is your evidence?
Nevermind that person for you to ask him evidence.
It is akin to your cover? How can you ask a delille in evidence on something as fundamental as the last Prophethood of our beloved the last time you saw the last prophet? There is no there is no aspect with regard to you know this, that there is any difference of opinion on fundamentals, whether it be the fundamentals with regard to the the integrity of the Sahaba whether it be with regard to the aspect of the finality of our beloved Navy, we're not talking about that, we are talking of subdivisional issues, we talking about furuya things that are with regard to for example and methods of fic right. Now, in this particular matter, many times people sometimes foolishly say
we must buddy all the school of thoughts and make it into one.
This is a fully statement, all they say that we must put all the formulas I once said it was only a one must have Why must we have to the Why must we have some people making refire in what some people not making? What is the need for us to do so we must do everything one
and this is neither possible, neither desirable. There is always going to be difference of opinion in terms of those aspects which are not fundamental which are sub divisional issues. things which are with regard to things which are regard to those aspects where for example, the Quran and Hadith has been silent. There are many aspects with the Quran and Hadith, especially with contemporary issues are silent. Let's face the fact that living in a democracy is something new.
Living in a country with a first clause of the Constitution says that all religions are equal.
Where whereas you and I we believe in the dinner in the law Hill Islam, the deen in the eyes of Allah tala is Islam. This particular aspect the Quran and Hadith is silent, how do we deal and stay in this country when the Constitution of the country in which states that this is a situation where as you and I believe is differently? Akita we believe differently, but yet we have to stay here we have got no other option. How do we stay here? In this particular matter, there is nothing that is clear cut from the Quran and Hadith now we have to Allah will differ how do we stay in this country? On what basis do we stay in this country?
Do we do this particular aspect there's going to be difference of opinion amongst the Allah because it's a matter there is no clear cut guidance that do this and do that from the Quran and Hadith. So, in this particular matter, there is going to be difference of opinion. Sometimes these these please grip wisdom in the difference of opinion, or light as in those who are in the know. And those are lemme tell you.
Omar bin Abdulaziz Rahmatullah Allah who is known as Omar ehsani. His integrity His justice has been universally accepted throughout. Throughout Islamic history. He used to say it used it never used to give me pleasure. When I heard that the Sahaba Akram didn't have a difference of opinion. And I heard they had a difference of opinion it gave me happiness, because now this accommodation is at least a little bit of accommodation. Right now. For example, we all go to Macau, Macau, for example, according Bhavani, Parramatta Lally, I don't go into the details, let me just say that it is it is sometimes part and parcel that is good to find out that there is difference of opinion, because
sometimes you might have a situation where you might have to follow those different opinions, if there was no difference of opinion there was no accommodation.
So, this is an aspect that we have to keep in mind with regard. So this difference of opinion will be there, in spite of the best of intentions, it will be there. How do we deal with it? Now, let us look at how did the sahaabah come? How did our pious predecessors deal with difference of opinion, then I will come to the reasons why there is difference of opinions amongst
Allah and then the pious people, and then what do you and I do?
So one of the aspects is the very famous example of difference of opinion.
I will make it very brief in this come to, in the time after nebia Kareem sallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, after one of the battles of the the Battle of the trench, like maybe a cream so loudly psyllium fell the battle is over and as a journalist salat wa salam came into Nevis asking why are you taking your armor off you have to still go and deal with the Jews have been Karissa synnovia cream sauce himself as a general a Serato Suleiman said you must go to Korea, right and go and see to it that
you read, you know, your Acero Margaret that was there. And in this particular way that the Sahaba went. Now one of them took the statement of Nassau Salaam, literally and they when they even if they asked her Sara became closer. And they said Let us go and the other one said no, maybe a cream sauce lemon go as soon as possible doesn't mean that you must make cars off your salad. Let us read our salad then we will get there.
We saw some time going through a certain menu chorus I think that was more or less, I think what was it? I mean, and some of them took it literally even if the numbers became cars and others read numbers on the road and then they reach them. Via Kareem saw slim didn't in any way say any one of them is wrong. Maybe aquariums Allahu alayhi wa sallam said just kept quiet. And in a way maybe a crimson allowed Islam approved of both the views despite the fact that they did something differently. And they took the statement of our beloved Nivea cream sauce them they understood it differently. In the time of the Sahaba crime there were many occasions that they were not only
difference of opinion, say was the difference of opinion led to war. Despite that, there was there was respect amongst one another. manana gave the example with regard to one will be allowed or not passed away. You know, literally allowed in the past there was a Mahavira de la Sara crying. His wife said you crying but you are fighting with him. He said you don't understand this man was the he was the one who understood the scenes of our beloved Nivea cream sauce and more than on any of us now alive.
When one of the companions of the Ultron, who came in the quarter was a mahavihara, the ultimo era the alto told him, you know, safe, tell me Give me the the qualities of alira the Allahu Allahu. And he said please excuse me because he felt that he's going to give the qualities of alira villatoro in front of someone like I said, Mahalia when the to head the difference of opinion, which even led to a war. And when
he insisted he gave such a touching, and growing description of as a little yellow triangle, it is blue in the books of history, I don't have the time to go into it. Such a remarkable, you know, way of describing literally allowed to know that he brought the entire modulus to tears, including mahavihara theologian who started crying so much that his beard became wet with his tears. This is despite the fact that they had difference of opinion among the Imams there was difference of opinion, you know, and yet despite those differences of opinion, they had such respect that you can't believe it. There has given example one example which I like, which is such an amazing thing
which we can take such great lessons. In mama Marina humble Rahmatullah Lee was of the view that if a person bleeds, his rubrics, right, so someone came and asked him once What an amazing thing asked him and look at his reply. He said,
Mr. Muhammad, would you read namaz behind a person?
Would you read namaz bi in a person who bleeds and does not make Wazoo and he stands as an Imam.
You believe the moment blood comes out your boo breaks?
You know of another person who after bleeding does not make Wazoo any making mama while you read numbers behind him. When your belief and your view is that the one who bleeds his boo is broken.
What did he reply? He said, Are you telling me I must not read numbers behind Imam Malik.
And I must not read numbers behind said his name was he? Are you telling me I must know the real numbers behind Mr. Maliki mom say who say who held the view that bleeding does not break.
He was saying are you telling me I must not read numbers. I will read numbers.
Despite the fact that my view is the bleeding Briggs was Oh, and they view is that by bleeding your food doesn't break.
This is the respect that they had for one another.
This is a respect that they have with regard to one another in terms of how many different types of situation there is kazama colada mix mentioned that Imam layth Rama Pillai saw him
Malaka Mottola live one day perspiring.
Monday perspiring. And he said, Mr. Malik, why are you perspiring? He said I just come out of a debate with him. Mama, Mama.
Mama he said, mama grandma tala Lee said Imani Parramatta lolly has this intellect. He had such an intellect and he showed no pillar in the masjid. He said, If he wants to prove that this pillar is made of gold, or made of a particular method, he will be able to prove it by his brilliance in terms of his intellect.
Oh, a passerby says that I saw Mr. Mallika, Allah Muhammad
Ali, discussing methods of fit for much of the night and they discuss it in such a way that there was no arguments there was no dispute, they discuss it and yet, when they came out and you look at amount of difference of opinion in the 50 views, it is something that is well established in the books of fiction. Now, this is a difference of opinion that you see amongst the situation's they say, Mr. Mallika, Medallia nema quantiferon Talalay, they were contemporaries.
And they after
the day, Emma wonderful Rahmatullah Lee passed away. This remark Shafi Rahmatullah Lee was born. So normally when we were students, one Abdullah will tell you that we were, you know, we were roommates, and one of the roommates was Mufti Raceway from Sri Lanka, who was Shafi. So we still have many many arguments. So what are the arguments used to have we still have worse now Why did it happen that the de monferrato rally passed away, Masha? Allah was born. So So the hanafis used to say he was frightened to come out until he Marconi for a rally passed away.
So we used to, anyway, whatever it was, an Imam Shafi, Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, contemporaries. There are some remarkable incidents with regard to the two I'm not going to go into it, because we have lack of time, then amongst our cabins, some of the things are quite amazing with regard to some of the incidents. I will narrate I've made mention of many, but I'm not going to read all of these incidents. Just to give you an example sometimes how the ease amongst our career is there was Shah matcha he didn't shy smile.
Say smile shade, Rahmatullah. Lee was the junior Shama che Rama kilala was a senior.
During the course of them, they had a difference of opinion. So one day they were debating the difference of opinion. One day they were debating the difference of opinion. And many times they used to be this type of difference of opinion. You know, one monitor Ibrahim Mia Rahmatullah Lee one day told me of an incident, he said that he was sitting in binnorie town in the place where we were, and he said, a person came, and he came into the madrasa and he said, I want to go to the data lifter, I want to go and ask a Muslim, take me to and show me whether the woof disease. So, the person who was in the office asked him You said what Muslim you want to ask, what Muslim you want to
ask is I want to ask is prawns dies or not?
If you want to know my view, give me an hour
right. So, he asked, What do you want to know? You want to know he says prawns dies or not. So, he said, Now, tell me what you want. Do you want a permissible Vedic or aromatic? So he said, I want the permissible body. So, you see the two booties sitting there. One is Mr. Abu Salah from Bangladesh, he says permissible and there is a sense of he says what permissible which way you want to go down?
So there is a difference of opinion with regard to it. So Shama che Rahmatullah ha smell shade was simple in debating the issue. Now these were to move these who are in one Doublelift and they hate this difference of opinion. Now in this whole particular aspect, sure. During the course of that change, while che drama Talia and said, I must ask for forgiveness, I must ask for forgiveness. He said, Why are you asking for forgiveness? He said, You are my senior. I can't debate this issue with you. I should have just accept what you have said.
Do you know what she said? How much a Rahmatullah Lee said he said it is only the word of a prophet that is accepted without the debate.
It is only the word of a prophet that is accepted without the debate. You have committed schilke in Prophethood by saying, you cannot debate with me and you cannot express your opinion with me.
You have committed sherkin Prophethood by saying you cannot bring your view in front of anyone who feels that his view is such that cannot be debated. He's claiming to be equivalent to the prophet of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And this is not what I'm saying. I'm saying what our cabling is saying is sometimes very, you know, good to relate what our cabling saying but sometimes might become difficult to to live according to what the cabling have said. But this is the aspect with regard to you know, this aspect
In an in a book that has been published in that one also, these narratives of ROM Talalay is one of his bionz critiques of Rahmatullah Lee says that a person stayed in the company of chef Abdul Qadir jilani Rahmatullah for a long period of time. And when he was going, he said, give me advice. So shadow Cather, Gilani, Rahmatullah said, Don't ever claim to be Allah And don't ever claim to be the nebula of Allah. So he got a shock. He said, Chef, I stayed in your company for 10 years, I'm going to make a claim that I am Allah, how am I going to make a claim that I'm the Navy of Allah? So he said only allows Word is truth. And if you ever say and claim it, I'm the only one who speaks truth
you are claiming divinity. And only the Navy of Allah tala his words is such that that it cannot be debated, it cannot be argued against it, it is always truth. And you ever you claim it My word cannot be contradicted. We have claimed Prophethood of Almighty Allah subhanho wa
Taala literalist students. Then our example one Allah gave many examples with regard to mana Hussain Ahmed Madeira Malawi.
getting lucky is only one more page left.
So this is the longest
the example of
there are many examples of Mara Madeira Malawi, Mona Simone Madeira Malawi while doing reading on this one of the most amazing amazing incidents I came across was this incident of a person by the name of munchie neural Hasson.
And although you might be tired just take our time to listen to this incident munchie neural has an was a halifa and he was very close to one at anger. I'm not sure whether Hollywood halifa but he was very close Matangi.
One day he came to the Hong Kong monetary rally. And he said something to one of the attendance
and he said to his name, the attendance name was Solomon. And he said Solomon I'm very worried. One of the tamarama to lollies speaks about the Muslim League glowingly about the Muslim League. But when I attend many of the meetings of the Muslim League, they speak bad about Manasa number two lolly shuffle Islam.
And Maulana Madani is a saint of Allah has a value of Allah How can they speak better about Maulana Madani Suleiman feeling that more autonomy and mana money Rahmatullah Lee had a difference of opinion. He said Since when is Maulana Madani a saint
shaytan also was a saint,
he uses word shaytan also was a saint. Sometimes you see these words can become you know, we can say words and sometimes we say words to hurt people.
So they say the husband and wife were fighting, right? And as they were fighting, they were very in a bad mood and they were going past and they were driving. So now when they were driving, I won't say who said it. I won't say the husband or the wife said it I'm just saying one of them said it as they were driving across town donkeys. They said relatives
or relatives. So the other spouse said yes my in laws.
this Sulaiman the attendant in sometimes a hardcore dumb, they create more problems and more fitness than anything else. Those who are close to the goblins are always some of them are very sincere little reward them for the Baraka and for the Hitman. So Sulaiman said. So munchie noodle huson became very, very angry. So the next day my camera is Madras.
He wanted to bring it up, but he couldn't find he couldn't get the courage. So one person asked the question, and he found the courage to be able to say it, someone asked Mona tangram, curly monana give us an example and see, when we go to do one tomorrow, cinema,
3d is great amount of accommodation, Mona Medan is not very strict. So, you can come in you want to go into the hunka you are allowed to do whatever you want to do, and there is a certain degree of accommodation. And there is was at in terms of doing things, you're in your hand got a great amount of strictness, you have to get up at this time, you have to eat at this time, this is the limitation. This time you have to come in you can come in after this time, there is great amount of limitation. Why is there such a difference?
So number one, let me give an amazing answer. He says that an ocean can accommodate much how much filth is thrown into an ocean and in an ocean ocean can accommodate much more on Amani Rama Talalay is an ocean he can accommodate much he can accommodate much. I'm a small cup a small cup can accommodate much
No ocean can accommodate filth. We all know that the sewage of everything goes into the ocean it accommodates everything. Put that leftover of filth in a small cup what will happen? So my Tommy Rahmatullah Lee said and I will ocean can accommodate much more than a madness and ocean I'm a small cup I can accommodate. These are my limitations. The visa restrictions, live according to it if you can't otherwise go to Walmart muramatsu rally, you know, so he said, this machine will listen said I got an opportunity, I said, has read one of your attendance said such and such a thing.
When an attendee Rahmatullah a call the hardens, call one of them and said, Get him by his ears and take him out of my mattress.
Catch him by my by his ears and take him out of my mattress. He removed him from his mattress. They after many people have Matangi Rahmatullah Lee came to intercede as that he was such a good heart him of yours. He was such a good attendant, bring him closer to you. allow him to come back. My camera said our only allow him if he goes in right and get a written letter of forgiveness from Montana, but
he went to Montana with me. Mama de la rue Tomas and I have forgiven him you also forgive him.
I have forgiven him you also forgive him. When autonomy Rasul Allah heard this and said, I'm not satisfied with us. Did you tell Maulana Madani what you said about him?
Go and bring a letter that Maulana Madani is forgiven you after he has heard what you had said about him, then I will accept your forgiveness. He went back to mama mama said I heard what he said about me I have forgiven him.
So forgive him.
This is where there's two great people who had such great difference of opinion about the formation of Pakistan and this is what the situation was. So we have this as a share from Fulani rights. Whenever there is a difference of opinion and it's kept within its liberal limits. There will be no fitna
mana has a chef matale right wherever there is a difference of opinion and it's kept within its limits. There will be no fitna and if these fitna in difference of opinion that means the limits have not been ordained and the limits have not been kept.
So now in this particular regard, we can carry on my dear respective others. Why is the difference of opinion?
Why is the difference of opinion you will ask the question that why is the difference of opinion? Sometimes difference of opinion occurs because people have different temperaments. Right. So let me give an example.
In the time after the Battle of whether, when they were capitals of the Battle of
Libya Kareem saw Salaam as the South Sahaba What must we do with them? So tomorrow they allow Rahu and Abu Bakar the lotto took two views. What was the view of tomorrow the ultimate Yasuda law This is the first time the first battle of truth and false would kill every one of those capitals and not only kill them, the one who is closest to the capital, he must kill him to show people that there is no there is no blood relationship in terms of hearken back and truth and truth and falsehood. We are on how even if it be against our own family members. So if the person comes from McCann, he is the Maharaja who is here. The closest person must kill him Sabine Mahabharata and also had the same
opinion as remover karate. ultimo said, Yasser Allah, these are people who stayed with us in Makkah, have mercy upon them, show kindness to them, show compassion to them, inshallah many of them will one day become Muslims, the via Karim so slim, like that view. And it's so happened. It so happened that many of them at the time who are the captives, when they went back when they had a time to reflect when they saw the truth of Islam, they saw the compassion of the source and they became Muslims. Although Allah subhanho wa Taala favored the first view, Mark annalena been a akuna la serata
they don't wanna be a cream sauce nimcet and I want you to listen to this. The via Kareem saw Salaam said, Allah has created people differently the temperaments. O'Meara, your example is like I said, Musa Li salatu wa sallam that he may do Almighty Allah ropenet Miss Allah, Allah him was stood over him for you know Hatha Yoga hula dabolim Allah, destroy the wealth of Freetown put a seed on his heart, he must not bring a man until he sees your punishment. Omar you are like Musa de salatu salam. And oh, Omar, you are like New Orleans salat wa salam, O Allah ta RT mineral Katerina de Yara
Allah don't keep one single disbeliever alive in
This world completing, eradicate and destroy every one of them. Your example is like I said, nauli salatu salam. N o. o Abubakar, your example is like as if he certainly salat wa salam into other home for him a point of contrast.
You know, he made what Almighty Allah who alive you punish my followers you are entitled to punish them if you forgive them, you have the capacity also to forgive them. You lie Salli salatu wa salam o abubaker you are like Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam who may do a fermenter BNF I know many women are Santa Fe in the case of for him, Allah amongst my followers, those who follow me, you know there are there are those who followed me they are Muslims, or Manasa but even those who disobeyed me they are still you as a foreigner Rahim
In a Rahim Allah had even our own money, so don't blame me for I know sometimes people blame me for that.
Abraham's are supposed to be compassionate. So why do you think a zero in a Rahim? Allah Khalid
Ibrahim is compassionate. So So look at what he said he didn't say, Omar you are on our worker you are on.
Omar you are like Melissa, you are like musala salatu salam, O Allah worker You are lucky Sally salat wa salam, you are like Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Allah has created people different in temperaments.
Sometimes that the difference is with regard to the difference in perspectives. You know, many of you elder people will remember you know that one of the pilot Haqqani came here to and many times when he came here, he used to give some good examples. Right? So one of the examples he gave was, you blindfold someone and you put the few four or five people and you blindfold them and you put them in front of an elephant and you tell them right touch this whole particular aspect and tell us what we have seen.
So one of them will come and say I saw a tea tree trunk. I saw something like a tree trunk because he must have touched the legs of the elephant. Someone will say I saw something like a work most of the
Yeah, the tea or someone must have you know everyone comes in said I touched I think was a work. Someone said I thought it was a trunk. Someone said I thought it was a huge big structure. Now when you say anyone is wrong,
he is so things according to his perspective. He's not necessarily wrong. He just saw things according to his own perspective.
Now for example, many times people things people see things differently. Other people of Azad will see things differently.
They say yeah, if you ask a youngster for a date, he gives you a
different read about other people who see things differently. Another perspective they see. So for example, let me give you example mom of two tacos, money
in a burn that he gave to learner in Alma, he gave two beautiful examples. Talking of perspectives. One is the example of one Mr. Tommy Rahmatullahi wa rahmatullah Lee at a time when the should the Tarik the shooting was a particular thing where they went to village to village in India and they tried to bring people away and make them move away from Islam. So the news came to do one that one village has become mukha they have left the religion they have left Islam. So Mana tangram trolleys went to the delegation to go and see that village and he came to that village. He asked the people, we have heard that you have forsaken Islam. How could you forsake Islam in your father's in your
forefathers and you are born as Muslims, how could you forsake Islam? They said were we forsaken Islam? I'm Tomas Lima, Hunter musalman, a hunter Tatiana Kala. We take out diseases.
We take out diseases. Monica Rahmatullah Lee said, continue taking out as yours not because as yours is, right. But because for them that was the identification of being a Muslim.
It was a perspective that he saw at that particular time.
It was not a perspective that he would have right in a Muslim or photron sometimes perspectives of different the same thing about muramasa Hussain candles were actually one of our great, the one of the great scholars of saharanpur Messiah. He went one day to a village and he saw the village was locked.
The village Masjid was locked in he went door to door and said you this you are all Muslims in this village. Why is the masjid rock for so long? He went into the merchant and he saw that it was completely dusty. people haven't come into the market for years. So he said what has gone wrong with you at least some time namaaz Juma What is wrong? Nothing. So he he came to realize that in some of the rural
areas in india pakistan previously and maybe even now also in certain very rural areas, people go according to the what they call the head of the village. So if he's an amateur everyone will come to him as if he doesn't read numbers. No one will read numbers. everyone follows the leader.
So he said he doesn't read number so we're not reading numbers. So mom was a frozen Rahmatullah even to go and see him and said, How can you not read numbers? And he gave him the virtue of numbers he said, as I got few viewpoints if I can't read numbers, say what it is. He said, I drink alcohol.
Different immoral woman come to me and he said, above all, I just can't bear making Wazoo I can even with all my faults One morning I explained him already even with you're gonna go and read namaz inshallah, through the means of that Allah will take you away from the Guna and sin in assata hanifa.
So they're after you said, or even if I do that, I don't want to make boo. Now what if one of them was a furusato laliga and this is something that I heard not once three times I read the ban again and again, to say that is this. And he said, Go and read namaaz without Wazoo
go and read namaaz without Wazoo.
perspective, he saw a different perspective. He saw something that was not in in a wholly an environment. So this person now look at the other side, he started he said, okay, Mama gave me the permission to go I'm going to go and just before he was about to go, the thought came into his mind and he said,
you know, Allah, the first time I'm going to the masjid,
in my life, how can I go without Zoo and he went to break was when he went to the masjid.
Sometimes these these perspectives, people see things in a different perspective. So, these are situations with regard to why there is difference of opinion sometimes these temperaments now what what does it mean to all you and I, what does it mean to you and I as laypeople.
If there's different temperaments whose temperament suits you can follow him. Don't make an argument.
Don't make fitna sometimes try to understand people with regard to the perspectives that they have, why they choose certain, certain ways in certain avenues. But sometimes people try to understand people to understand people doesn't mean you agree with them. Sometimes you're trying to understand people is a common mistake many people make unless you don't understand a person's background and train of thought you cannot engage or provide effective solutions to his problems. Sometimes you engage people not because you agree with them. You want to engage them to understand where they are coming from, to be able to give them better guidance, to be able to tell them what is right, until
you don't understand where they're coming from, you will not be able to. So sometimes people differ because of the temperaments, sometimes because of the perspectives and what they see and what other people can see.
Now, what do what does it mean to you and I,
the result of all this is those whom you want to follow amongst the alama follow them but don't
don't speak bad about one another. Don't create you know, creating this whole particular situation that we find ourselves in that we have spent so much time in this whole particular aspect. And not I mean, the allama will have the academic type of disputes from the Quran and Hadith that is a particular type of film and has led me to say, argumentation of Deen is only for the allamah argumentation and disputes and evidence with regard to dentists for the automa the lay people, you will follow those whom you have the greatest amount of trust and if you follow someone, you will feel that you want to follow them, follow him, don't go and speak bad about someone else. That is
what you and I have to do. Now, the result of all this is we are trying to score points for the one against one another against whom we feel that this is our chef or our alum. So we got to score points against someone else who has a different view. What happens is that we tell you the time that you are spent in getting even in scoring points, you could have better spent it by going ahead. You could have got better spend it by going ahead, the time invested in improving ourselves, cut down on time wasting wasted in disapproving of others. Instead of now wasting your time in disapproval of this approving of others, talking bad about others. Speaking bad about those people who are not
right, you could have spent that time improving yourself and coming closer towards Almighty Allah and the other aspect in our time that we are spending in terms of this difference of opinion. While we are setting and spending our time in this difference of opinion, look at the world around us. Look at the situation around us in South Africa.
Let me give you two situations and I won't go into it I can give you a more than that. Right? This look at what is happening in our own country, while we have our code and we will make dua and we will make to other Allah Allah grant us peace, Allah Allah grant us safety Allah Allah grant a security, but it is also part of our team to be able to take necessary means to prevent yourself from what is happening. There is not one battle of our beloved Nivea cream sauce lamb that nobody saw Salaam entered into purely on the basis of the worker and didn't take any particular type of remedy and means to be able to face the challenges of that particular battle. In Libya, Kareem said
Allahu Allah wa sallam came into the vehicle himself, came to one place, because habibie been wounded villalta nomos probably one of the Sahaba who came and said, Yasuda Allah, may I ask a question? Yes. Oh, Habib Tell me asked me if there's a Libya Kareem said a lovely Selim asked me a question. Are you camping here? Because Allah told you, are you camping here by your discretion?
If Allah told you, I won't say anything heavy, I'm camping here because of my indiscretion, I feel this is a good place jasola if you are camping gear on your discretion, that let me tell you go in camp at that place. The reason is this, this, this is better for you to come there.
And we saw supplemental income that other place. And later on when the rain came, that place became more beneficial for the Muslims. And where the enemies were, it became more disadvantages to them. Whenever a occurring saucer limb came into the Battle of what may be occurring, so awesome. So then he saw that there was an opening at the back from the Gemini Roma. He put 50 arches there. He didn't say we're gonna make the vocal and we're gonna go and fight. What are the situations in our country? We are in a situation now where rightly or wrongly, and maybe because of political pressure and scoring political points, Indians, and because many of us are Indians, and I do believe and I must
say this, not all Muslims are Indians, because Allah has given Islam to the entire humanity. And whoever chooses Islam is to his benefit.
We have done no favor to Islam, but Allah, Polycom and other community man, Allah has done you a favor by giving you a diet. You have done no favor to Islam. Whether you are black, white, or Indian, who have done no favor to Islam, by being a Muslim, Elias favor to become a Muslim. But Allahu Allah caminhada. Camilla, right. However, having said that many of many of the Muslims to the Indians, and today Muslims are being an Indians have been accused of being racist. Many people will say that it's not something that is true, not true, true, and Allah knows I'm not gonna go into that. Even the perception
even the perception that Muslims can be racist,
is a tragedy of calamitous proportion.
Even the perception that Muslims can be racist, is a prejudice of calamitous proportion. Because if anything then maybe of Allah came to break down racism
before it was trendy before it was make mention of in the United Nation, maybe aquariums awesome said cool lucam mean Adam, Rob, he each and every one of you is from Adam and Adam Allah salat wa salam is from LA fatale Arabic, Allah amin, there is no superiority of the Arab over the non Arab and there is no superiority of the non edible with Adam. There is no superiority of the white over the black and there is no superiority of the black over the white except on the base of taqwa and piety that that never be that came with that message. The followers of that message must be perceived to be racist.
What have we done anything about it because we are fighting about our difference of opinion?
Have we have we tackled it? Have we been able to look at it? What are the repercussions? If we are regarded to be like that we become soft targets we become have we been able to sit and talk about it? Have you ever been to challenge it?
That particular religion, that when Malcolm X Haji Malik Shahbaz Ahmed comes from America for Hajj, he believes because of what he had seen the racist tendencies of the white people of America, he firmly believes that you can never ever have cooperation with white people
because of the racist tendencies that he has seen from them.
And he comes to hedge with that, believe
it when it comes for hedge, he writes in his autobiography, and I want to if you can read this out of autobiography you read that poor portion of he said never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that I could have seen a situation with a dark skinned people of Africa and the blunders of blonde who had blond hair and blue eyes from the skin.
navion countries would have been performing the same rights, eating from the same place, living in the same tense and performing the same rights and making the same Hajj. In one way, I never thought that I would have seen that in my life until I came for Hajj, which is one of the symbols of Islam. And today, if we are perceived to be like that, do we take it as to be just likely, because we are busy scoring points over one another. Look at the aspect of what's happening in our crime in our communities. I'm not saying we must take the law in our own hands. But today, many I've underlined gave me some pleasure to hear that year there is some sort of now focus and cooperation with regard
to police forums, and community policing and getting together. I mean, look at what his situation were not saying you must take. But surely we can. Everyone must put his shoulder to the wheel to be able to say they must be neighborhood watch. are we concerned with regard to what is happening to our neighbors? If there is something that is happening in our neighborhood, it's our responsibility to see that we play a role for the safety of our neighborhoods. And never mind anything else. This is a student of Nivea cream saucer. And I will conclude with this one day there was a loud noise that emanated in Madina munawwara people were afraid when it says now loud, not loud noise emanating
from and they did not know what was happening. Everyone was very worried what are we going to do? Why is this not loud, loud, loud noise emanating? When they came out of the house, what site greeted them.
Mr Allahu wa sallam is on his horseback
or people of Medina, Quinn rest. I myself as an nibio of Allah had gone to go and see where that source of noise was. And there is nothing to worry about go back into your homes.
The Nebula himself went out to go and see what was happening and where that noise was. This is this two examples I've given look at what is happening with regard to the land issue in our country. Let us look at what is rebel, what is happening with regard to the different voices that are coming in we have we have a viewpoint with regard to land, but we have never been able to research it and come to tell people what Islam says about it.
So the end of the day, my dear respected weathers to conclude with, let me say I started off by saying Allah Allah has created us differently. But yet Allah want us to be one. Then one of the things that come up when we are wondering what how do we deal with a difference of opinion, I say that Allah has created us in different ways, different colors, different races, in part of different illustrators with different capabilities. So he is going to be a difference of opinion with regard to your intellect, and how we look at things. And if it is done within a limit, in the words of acid, shareholder democracy, clearly there will be no fitness, difference of opinion is done
correctly. I gave you examples with regard to it. And one of the aspects with regard to us when we don't do it correctly, we have become so obsessed with us that we are taking is taking us away from dealing with critical situations in our country, which only a blind person cannot see.
It's impossible that we cannot see what is happening around us and not do something or at least get together to try and do something, or at least have a concern to do something or at least start talking about it to do something. But we can't because we are obsessed with other things. May Allah give us a tofik of understanding work through that one. I
