00:00:45--> 00:00:54

was at nine, one Zen la Calcutta TBR Nanakuli chez la Spangler says

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

when is the zelner alagille kita TBN licola Shea and we have sent down to you a book

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

explaining everything.

00:01:06--> 00:01:12

Now, in the last two lectures, including the one I made on a morning,

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

we had discussed

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

the

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

intention

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

and the objective of hedge.

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

And we said that

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

we objective of Hajj

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

as we deduce it from the

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

behavior of the Sahaba alima salat wa salam

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

was to re energize them

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

and give them the necessary knowledge

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

in order to

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

go out into the world

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

and to create

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

an environment for mankind

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

in which they would be justice,

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

equality

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

and the worship of one and one Allah alone.

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

I have said that

00:02:28--> 00:02:32

after the Hajj of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam which was the first Hajj

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

called hedger to Islam,

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

also hydrated with our

00:02:39--> 00:02:47

way 124,000 companions of the Prophet salla salaam, gathered on the plane of arafah

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

where they listen to the last sermon of the Nabi sallallahu wasallam.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

Giving them a constitution

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

as to how to read how to revitalize the world.

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

And I said

00:03:05--> 00:03:10

that these 124,000 people Sahaba didn't just go back to Medina.

00:03:12--> 00:03:19

No, they spread throughout the world. They left arafa and spread throughout the world.

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

And the revolution that we see

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

that we've seen take place at the time, changed

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

the whole of humanity.

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

It set the bases for what we know today as science and technology.

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

They set the stage for to now today know as democracy

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

so called democracy.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

They set the stage

00:03:54--> 00:04:08

for the study of law, sociology, all the different sciences we have today was established. The foundation was laid by the Sahaba Allium Salam having returned from arafa.

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

And I saved that today we come from arafa

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

and our main concern is how do we get the Zamzam water to Cape Town

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

and what kind of dates we should buy.

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

Depending on the money in our pocket, whether whereby the black dates or the brown dates or the weight dates or the dry dates.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

And I say that this is not the wrong

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

It is good and encouraged

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

by the Navy salatu salam for us

00:04:53--> 00:04:53

to share

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

and to give each other the presence of a salsa lamb said to her to the hobble give

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

Each other gifts and Allah will put love in your heart for each other.

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

But that is on the very minor level,

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

the greater objective of Hajj is not that

00:05:17--> 00:05:22

if it was that the objective of hygiene was to bring patients home

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

then Allah subhanaw taala would not put those same presence

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

in case for

00:05:31--> 00:05:42

if the only place to get some German diet was maca, allows mohandro kept kept it there and not centered throughout the world where you could not buy it anywhere in the world. You don't have to bring it from there.

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

So I said we need to relook at ourselves.

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

And why we do the things that we do

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

with a hydrologist become a ritual of going and coming in the shortest period of time.

00:06:03--> 00:06:10

So I go because I have to perform my fault. And Allah performed my fault. I'm free from that. Okay, that's it, I've done that.

00:06:13--> 00:06:23

And then I carry on with my life and say, Well, I don't have to go again hamdulillah accredited or God did what I had to do, I'm back now take off my top

00:06:26--> 00:06:27

and back where I was

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

before I left,

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

so it doesn't change.

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

It's not the vehicle for change that we want.

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

And today I want to continue with that theme.

00:06:43--> 00:06:44

And look at

00:06:45--> 00:06:49

the lives of some of the Sahaba Eileen Sato Salaam

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

after the static hedge of the Navy so allowed us alone, because really everything came from the

00:06:59--> 00:07:04

at the Battle acaba pathania. The second pledge of acaba

00:07:05--> 00:07:15

as I say to you 17 men from Medina came converted by were converted to Islam and one of them was more as

00:07:16--> 00:07:22

ignatova more as imageable m IJ.

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

Not the other Mr. j.

00:07:26--> 00:07:32

m, ij, Murat, Ebony, Java. So today inshallah we'll focus a little bit on him

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

and see what happened once a hobby

00:07:40--> 00:07:55

and his relationship that he had with Islam in the relationship with the head was Mohammed Salah, it was another 70 men who came and pledge allegiance to the Navy Salam in Makkah abuse to living in Makkah was before he made hegira and when the Navy Salam came back,

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

or other women evisa salam came to Medina

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

more Mark imageable was a young man.

00:08:06--> 00:08:09

He's a very handsome young man, he had curly hair,

00:08:10--> 00:08:11

pitch black eyes,

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

and people loved him. So Young man, he was one of the six men

00:08:19--> 00:08:38

when memorize the whole Koran and compiled the whole Koran during the lifetime of the Navy solarzero they collected and ratcheted down on different kinds of parchment and leather and so forth and so on that they use at the time they didn't have paper. He was one of the very

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

important men

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

and the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

had said about him,

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

that he will be the leader of the scholars on the Rif gamma

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

Levy, so Sam also said about him

00:09:00--> 00:09:05

that he would he would be the expert in matters of halal and haram.

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

So having said this about mark, even with Java,

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

the Nabi sallallahu wasallam wanted to give us an indication of the level of knowledge of the Sahaba.

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

And when the people of Yemen

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

came to the Navy salatu salam,

00:09:28--> 00:09:40

and they had converted to Islam. What are the requests they made was for the ib alysus to send the man to them to teach in the Koran and to guide them in matters of Deen

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

and so the Nabi sallallahu wasallam chose mov

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

and the advice he gave to Bob

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Was of such great significance

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

that the whole of the law of Islam

00:10:14--> 00:10:25

and the sources that we use two x three k the law of Islam is based on the advice that the Navy Sallam gave him on that day.

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

Because so many other things he gave him we know one day the Navy Salam was working with him in the road.

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

And then ABC team Yamaha's I know head book,

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

Levy's srmc team Oh my god, I love you

00:10:45--> 00:10:55

know the Navy didn't use those words in vain those words were prophetic words words from the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala to say to another man I love you

00:10:57--> 00:11:12

know had no caffeine Islam as we say today we are shy you know, we don't tell a man I love him because he may get some other ideas. So he said, Sam, I love you in Islam. Now in those days nevison said I love you full stop. Let me say Salaam say to him I want to give you some advice.

00:11:13--> 00:11:19

Now if you give advice to a person that you love, Coach you're going to give him the best advice

00:11:21--> 00:11:26

so of course he said you're a solo and no handbook and I love you as well and property to him Yamaha's

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

whenever you make Salah

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

Do not forget to say

00:11:37--> 00:11:43

after every Salah that you have made Allahumma

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

inni

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

00:12:33--> 00:12:43

00:12:45--> 00:12:55

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

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

and to be grateful to you, were hosting aerobatic and to make my worship for you in nemos beautifulest for

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

Subhan Allah.

00:13:15--> 00:13:21

So what did nobody tell him to do? He should must ask Allah to help him to remember Allah.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

Help him

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

to sank Allah

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

help him to make his ariba in the most beautifulest form.

00:13:35--> 00:13:40

And this is one area which makes me extremely sad about this community in particular,

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

the Muslims of Cape Town

00:13:45--> 00:13:54

which I have not seen in other Muslim communities in Malaysia or in Qatar, or other places have traveled or Egypt.

00:13:57--> 00:14:00

We are very ill disciplined in Salah.

00:14:02--> 00:14:07

We treat the Salah as if it were worshiping our mother and father.

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

For example,

00:14:13--> 00:14:19

the Imam is going to perform Salah so he can stand up and he goes to the front.

00:14:21--> 00:14:34

Three minutes later, there are still people after it's already started. He's technically haram and reading his party Are they still people who have been in MSG, sitting in the masjid, who still hasn't come to the south.

00:14:36--> 00:14:46

They still walking in their own time from the back day wherever they come from. Getting up from the chairs getting up from the wall, slowly walking to the front.

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

And I said the other night

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

must Allah not wait for you?

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Allah must not wait for you. When you decide you want to get up from work.

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

You're setting and you decide when you will come join us.

00:15:07--> 00:15:15

And we expect our visit to increase our children to be good, our eyes to be good our communities to be in our face to be in order.

00:15:17--> 00:15:22

But the fundamental borrowed of Salah which allows one is based upon us.

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

We know what we don't check with the state in the south.

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

We come to merge it as we want to come to the masjid.

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

There is no seriousness about

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

it. This was the first

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

act

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

of our relationship with allows peloton.

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

Nagisa salami himself went down the aisle, down the line,

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

prodding people to stand straight in the south. Sahaba was in the south when they when they

00:15:59--> 00:16:07

started the karma people were standing in their soft, not lounging in the masjid, waiting for the karma to be finished

00:16:08--> 00:16:12

their karma when a man centered to make a karma, you should be in yourself.

00:16:14--> 00:16:21

When the commander of the army is ready to go into battle, you can be sitting there next to a wall and say, Well, no, no.

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

No, this is you or the army of a law. You're the disciplined army of alows.

00:16:34--> 00:16:52

So it shows that attitude shows an attitude towards Allah and your deen and your prophet and what you believe in that shows it tells everything about if a non Muslim a Christian should walk in to imagine we see you say, well, that man he seems he's lagging behind. I mean, people are standing in the somebody

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

you know, if you go to Newlands and you stand in the line to buy a ticket

00:16:58--> 00:17:03

or in a cinema or wherever you go, or you're standing in talcum in the queue.

00:17:04--> 00:17:11

What is your greatest wish? Your greatest vision somebody should come to you and say with that question for Nick, you're so right.

00:17:14--> 00:17:21

Isn't that what you want? hamdulillah basically, Intel communists, always the people who found the view, always spend hours and hours before you can get there.

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

But in the magic is definitely valued at you to Buddha,

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

Buddha study for

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

Afghanistan,

00:17:35--> 00:17:43

but everything else in life in every other kill. For every dunya mean that we have, we want to be first in the queue

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

and then recover when we say to instant queue

00:17:48--> 00:17:56

which is to make you hungry. Who of us goes home and says to our wives and children. It was fullness of a concern among

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

how many of us is proud of

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

time after statement after this done.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

So

00:18:11--> 00:18:32

that is a certain set of solid to mid teens Allah is the foundation of de hacer la la la sala The first thing I was gonna ask is about your Salah. Where did you stand? how quickly you got yourself? How many times you prayed how many times you prayed in JAMA all these questions as a first line of questioning which you're going to get to them

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

all right, so we can continue with it some other time.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

So, why imageable

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

rhodiola

00:18:47--> 00:18:54

was given this gift by the Navy Salah to say Allah and Niala the cricket wushu, cricket.

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

The Prophet called him and said to him, people of Yemen came I want to send you to Yemen.

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

The prophets of Salaam asked him the following questions.

00:19:12--> 00:19:13

What was Hassan said to him?

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

If you have to give a judgement when the people ask you for a judgment,

00:19:21--> 00:19:33

or an opinion, or a fatwa, as we call it, or respond as they say in law, how will you What will you do? He said, I will go to the Quran

00:19:35--> 00:19:42

and the prophesy to him for Islam. Tragic and if you can't find it in the Quran, he said

00:19:43--> 00:19:53

for be so nutty Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he said I will go to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Then the name is Hassan said to him for inlanta je ne

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

If you can't find the answer, neither in the Koran nor in my sadhana, what will you do?

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

He said

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

he, I stay he do what he said, I will exempt myself

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

to the utmost to for my own judgment

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

of course a judgment

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

which should be in conformity

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

with the principles of the Quran and Sunnah.

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

Now, what are the three questions? First, what will you use to give judgment?

00:20:45--> 00:21:00

Secondly, the Sunnah. Thirdly, the Nabi Salam said to him, and if you can't find it in the Quran and Sunnah, then he said, I will use our exercise my intellectual capacity

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

and give a judgement not

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

in disagreement with the Quran and Sunnah

00:21:10--> 00:21:10

now

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

allows for 100 assists. However, in the Quran,

00:21:16--> 00:21:30

we have seen down to you a book explaining everything. And in other words, Allah says, ma for rock nerfing Nikita Beeman, che, we have omitted nothing from the book of Allah.

00:21:31--> 00:21:39

All right, so now there seems to be a contradiction. Allah says we've removed everything from the book. Yet the Prophet said, If you can't find it in the book,

00:21:43--> 00:21:54

what will you do? And he said, I will use my judgment, I will exercise but Allah says everything is in the Quran. What does Allah mean when Allah says everything is normal? It means

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

all the principles

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

of life and law is found in the Quran.

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

But the details of that

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

is a matter of the application of the mind of the intellect.

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

And this is very interesting.

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

Because the Nabi sallallahu wasallam

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

recognized

00:22:27--> 00:22:28

during his lifetime,

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

that though Yemen was only a few 100 kilometres away from Medina,

00:22:37--> 00:22:42

it already was a different geographical, cultural and legal setting.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

That Yemen was different from Medina.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

And it required

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

a leader of Muslims to reflect

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

and to make what is called each jihad,

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

however, remaining faithful to the law and principles of Islam.

00:23:08--> 00:23:10

And so I went to Yemen.

00:23:12--> 00:23:17

And a number of cases are presented to macungie want to give you one or two of the cases presented to him.

00:23:18--> 00:23:24

And men died in Santa and he left a sister and a daughter.

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

And people came and said, What is your fatwa?

00:23:31--> 00:23:47

What happens to this man's inheritance? He has left only a sister. And he has left a daughter, two ladies, sister and adult. And my wife gave the fatwa to say that half the inheritance goes to the sister and half the inheritance goes to the daughter.

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

He didn't give any reason he didn't say no, but it was based on the Quran.

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

And this is another instance where

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

women get equal shares in inheritance.

00:24:05--> 00:24:20

Remember, we always think that women always get less than what the man gets No, I've given in the past. Other indications. Other examples. This is another example. If you die without a wife without children, you leave a sensor and deliver a daughter.

00:24:21--> 00:24:28

I mean, you leave a daughter you have one child, a daughter, you have don't have a wife, nobody else, then they each get half of us state.

00:24:30--> 00:24:31

Another

00:24:33--> 00:24:46

question that was posed to me in Yemen was that a Jew died, Jewish person died, and he left a Muslim brother.

00:24:47--> 00:24:50

Brother converted to Islam, and lifted Muslim law.

00:24:51--> 00:24:57

The question was asked to vim can a Muslim inherit from a non Muslim

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

And more has applied his mind

00:25:08--> 00:25:09

like to apply his mind.

00:25:11--> 00:25:21

And he referred to a hadith which has nothing to do with inheritance. But he based his verdict on that Hadith with an evisa. Salam said, Islamia, Aloo

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

wala you Allah, Allah,

00:25:25--> 00:25:31

Islam is always on top. And everything else is always at the bottom.

00:25:32--> 00:25:41

So he came to the conclusion that a Muslim can inherit from a Jewish or a non Muslim, but not vice versa.

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

A non Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

Because there are differences of opinion on this, but that was what was a manageable set.

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

Now,

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

I want to repeat to you this is that I was thinking about either giving this football not giving this

00:26:02--> 00:26:08

because it requires you to pay very keen attention to what I'm what I'm going to say.

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

The Prophet alysus, Rama recognized

00:26:17--> 00:26:22

that different circumstances, different societies,

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

with different cultural backgrounds needed

00:26:28--> 00:26:34

sometimes, for interpretations that will be in line,

00:26:35--> 00:26:40

or other for questions that will come from them, they will not come from other societies.

00:26:44--> 00:26:45

Today, we have the same problem.

00:26:48--> 00:26:55

Today, the Muslim world, including Cape Town, has, is confronted with

00:26:57--> 00:27:00

the problem of how do we

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

live as Muslims?

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

Listen to what I'm saying?

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

How do we live as Muslims

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

and at the same time

00:27:17--> 00:27:24

to be true to the ideals and the principles of Islam as it came to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:27:28--> 00:27:33

Now this is brought about many divisions in the Muslim community all over the world.

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

So you will read the newspaper and you will read about Salafi

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

jihadist

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

Islamist

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

progressives.

00:27:48--> 00:27:48

What else?

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

wahabis.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

All kinds of

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

groups of people.

00:28:03--> 00:28:08

And all of them have intention

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

to follow

00:28:11--> 00:28:15

to try to follow Islam as it was practiced by the natural law.

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

So what do they do? They look at the navvy salatu salam.

00:28:26--> 00:28:29

As an historical model, he we lived

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

in the beginning part of the history of Islam.

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

And he had a model. He had a behavioral model. He lives in a certain way.

00:28:45--> 00:28:46

And all these different groups,

00:28:50--> 00:28:58

including, of course, our Sufi brothers, our Tablighi brothers, everybody has a view of the nervous system. Everybody has a view.

00:29:02--> 00:29:11

And all of us have this challenge. How do we remain faithful to the ideals and principles within our own geographic and cultural setting in which we live

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

for the seller fees, now, I've never spoken about them before.

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

But I suppose

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

I never step back from a challenge.

00:29:28--> 00:29:30

Or step back from what I want to say.

00:29:31--> 00:29:32

Because

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

I've told you many times before

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

that I'm not here to convince you about anything.

00:29:46--> 00:29:47

I'm only here to convey

00:29:48--> 00:29:51

Allah has given you all intelligence, a

00:29:52--> 00:29:57

sense of balance. Imagine for you to decide

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

to follow your conscience.

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

And decide whether you want to accept it or not accept it.

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

That's my job.

00:30:09--> 00:30:12

So that your job, you have a job to listen and reside.

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

My conscience can follow this.

00:30:18--> 00:30:21

And ultimately, both of us depend

00:30:22--> 00:30:29

on guidance from Allah subhanaw taala, which can only come from Allah. So I'm not here to try to impress you convinced, you

00:30:31--> 00:30:31

know,

00:30:32--> 00:30:37

that is my intention, then I would fail in the objective of why I'm standing here.

00:30:38--> 00:30:46

So the selfies or the literal as they call them, the literal lists. Why because they interpret the Quran and Sunnah

00:30:47--> 00:30:49

as it is, literally

00:30:50--> 00:30:52

explain what it means.

00:30:54--> 00:31:01

They want to be faithful to the Prophet by imitating him in everything that he did.

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

For them,

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

they want to reproduce the form

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

of how the Prophet looked.

00:31:14--> 00:31:26

And sometimes forget the substance and the spirit maybe on the objectives. Let's take modesty for example. modesty, Islam preaches higher, one should be modest.

00:31:32--> 00:31:42

For the sum of is it means that you imitate the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and his companions? Exactly.

00:31:44--> 00:31:49

In other words, you dress exactly as he dressed. Exactly.

00:31:54--> 00:32:07

Sometimes in the same clothes were selfies in the world to even import the cotton from Yemen or the wolf from Yemen, because prophecies are missed away in winter warrantless from Yemen, made from Yemen, who would go to that extent.

00:32:10--> 00:32:15

For them, for the seller fees, this is the only reference to do it.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

In the form that it was done by the Navy so lasala

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

Jacqueline

00:32:23--> 00:32:32

says I've been working with a stick they would also work with even though they may be 25 years old or 18 years old, and no need to stick by because there is a solemn walk with a stick they would walk with this

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

I can understand this. I accept this.

00:32:40--> 00:32:49

Accept this if you apply to yourself, you won't walk if you want to look back then. And you want to lie to yourself barakallahu ik

00:32:52--> 00:32:57

if you want to dress exactly lamesa ceramidase comb your hair like he did wear your beard like he did

00:32:59--> 00:33:02

walk like he did and so forth and so on.

00:33:04--> 00:33:06

Baraka logic, however,

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

this is not the case then

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

an exclusivist approach.

00:33:16--> 00:33:25

What does it mean? It means that all these groups have one thing in common they say we are right and everybody else is wrong.

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

Whether it is

00:33:31--> 00:33:35

the seller fees the wahabis Sue fees the publisher is

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

the fundamental thrust of the message is that this is the way it's done and there is no other way to do it.

00:33:47--> 00:33:56

They disqualify all other interpretations and you see this is the way it is that's it you know that's the end of the road into the story. This is how it should be enough story.

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

Within examples

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

Some people say don't make do after the Salah

00:34:04--> 00:34:06

don't make thicker after the Salah.

00:34:09--> 00:34:11

Mr. Mousavi was confronted with the same

00:34:13--> 00:34:17

so when I say it is definitely my job is concerned with the same this problem too often.

00:34:18--> 00:34:20

It's 1500 years old.

00:34:22--> 00:34:25

There's not a Salah fitting or addressing new.

00:34:26--> 00:34:30

Any novel Shafi Rahim Allah. He answered the question he said,

00:34:34--> 00:34:37

Did the Navy Savalas, Allah Mcdo after Salah? Yes?

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

Did you like the Corrado? surah? Yes.

00:34:43--> 00:34:48

Did you say the door say Allah in Niala Vika? Yes. Did you say?

00:34:50--> 00:34:58

Yes. Did you make it three times Mohan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Akbar. Yes.

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Now the question arises is evolutionary theory, the difference is coming as to how many times he did it.

00:35:08--> 00:35:21

And that he had done it sometimes and not done it with other times, is in itself. So people will say, Well, he didn't do it all the time. Maybe he did it once or twice. So most of the time we didn't do what are we not going to do it?

00:35:22--> 00:35:24

Your mom Chavez response to that is?

00:35:25--> 00:35:27

No, I'm not the mom Shafi Hello.

00:35:28--> 00:35:39

If you should read the result of Imam Shafi and you know, that he Salah is the greatest book written by any man on the method,

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

methodology, the way

00:35:44--> 00:35:48

to approach the Quran and Sunnah novator book.

00:35:49--> 00:35:54

And it's written in a style which you and I can understand and it's been translated into English.

00:35:55--> 00:36:16

So you every one of you have no excuse not to have read the result of emotion. It's about 350 pages, combined on the internet by to the bookshops or rissalah of Imam Shafi in which the foundations of jurisprudence is laid out. There is our favor at the State Library. Firstly, libraries which book

00:36:19--> 00:36:19

which book

00:36:21--> 00:36:34

Martin links by Mohammed by Martin links at your first book. second book now you have another book or risala of emotion. You have a computer. You know where Amazon is? You have some money in your pocket.

00:36:35--> 00:36:40

Maybe there's some bookshop alhuda in Joburg wherever you can ask them to have seven sent to you

00:36:41--> 00:36:42

leave it

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

open the mind

00:36:45--> 00:36:50

you will see what a great man this was like Abu hanifa like above Malik it is more like

00:36:51--> 00:36:59

Okay, so let's come back to Chavez All right. So you people you detractors who say don't make it after Salah

00:37:01--> 00:37:07

even Ibiza La La Salaam and this is agreed by all the scholars even Ibiza la la sala, Madame, anything.

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

Anything doesn't matter how many times once, twice, three times

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

and you want to discontinue doing it.

00:37:24--> 00:37:28

Then you must have what is called a text

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

a hadith or a Quranic ayah

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

which abrogates the practice of the natural laws of law.

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

What does it mean?

00:37:44--> 00:37:51

It means the Prophet should have said with his mouth, you should discontinue this practice.

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

If he did not say with his mouth.

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

You should discontinue this practice the practice stance.

00:38:02--> 00:38:03

I'll give you example.

00:38:07--> 00:38:10

It's called the law of Nassif and mansukh.

00:38:14--> 00:38:27

mansukh is something which is abrogated. And NASA is the abrogating act as the act of the Prophet are the words of the Prophet. If that doesn't exist, the practice continues as it was

00:38:28--> 00:38:31

and the reverse. First in Ephesus, Adam said

00:38:33--> 00:38:35

do not visit the graves.

00:38:39--> 00:38:44

It's hard isn't racism. Initially, Medina said don't go visit the graves.

00:38:45--> 00:38:54

And I can assume I can see why we can deduce that the man of the Sahaba we just come out of Jamelia was very weak

00:38:58--> 00:39:16

and he needed to strengthen the EMA and so that they should not be any kind of a bad are connected to visiting the graves. We are back at that stage now we should revisit that that instruction later on gonna be gave another instruction. Now you can visit the grave.

00:39:18--> 00:39:32

Why? Because now a man was thrown people would not be distracted. People will not do the things they're doing today and all the kind of nonsense that we have today, because the man was strong. So what do we find it because the man has again become weak,

00:39:33--> 00:39:33

very weak.

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

Again

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

we have this thing. So

00:39:44--> 00:39:47

it is very important for us then to understand

00:39:49--> 00:39:51

that if I want to practice

00:39:53--> 00:39:57

that which the Navy Salalah Salama had done in the way I dress

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

or in the way

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

Do things

00:40:02--> 00:40:05

I cannot impose that on others.

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

This is the important point

00:40:09--> 00:40:12

because it's sooner, but I want to practice it that way.

00:40:14--> 00:40:15

Now,

00:40:18--> 00:40:19

why do we have this?

00:40:21--> 00:40:24

Why do we have some people dressing in a particular way

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

and others

00:40:29--> 00:40:31

also learn it also scholars

00:40:33--> 00:40:35

not dressing in that particular way.

00:40:38--> 00:40:44

It is because there is a fundamental flaw in the way we look at the deen

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

now, our Deen consists of three parts.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

The first is aqidah.

00:41:01--> 00:41:05

Or the way we believe in the oneness of Allah. The second is

00:41:06--> 00:41:11

the way we worship Allah and the third is Muhammad Allah

00:41:13--> 00:41:15

are our social affairs.

00:41:16--> 00:41:16

So,

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

Akita starts with an a,

00:41:21--> 00:41:25

a barrel starts with an eye and muhammara starts with an M.

00:41:26--> 00:41:33

So, we can give the heading to this part of the lectures aim, aim, aim.

00:41:34--> 00:41:38

So two things you want to remember Mr. J stands for.

00:41:40--> 00:41:44

I know it's 32 degrees today, but you know, you don't have to be so fast asleep.

00:41:45--> 00:41:50

m ij stands for Mojave Java and aim. Aim stands for

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

aqeedah

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

I bada Rahman

00:41:57--> 00:42:02

I will start with lift aqidah is your creed your belief?

00:42:04--> 00:42:12

I Bara is the way you worship. Rama is how you interact with one another your economy or politics. This is all

00:42:14--> 00:42:16

the first two aqidah and

00:42:21--> 00:42:24

in these two things we are confronted with an immutable

00:42:26--> 00:42:42

teachings and practices determined by revelation the Quran and the Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam immutable means unchangeable when it comes to aqidah I bada no changes

00:42:43--> 00:42:54

taken directly from the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Allah Salam remember what I'm saying to you, when it comes to your belief and your I bada That's it, you can't add and deduct from it.

00:42:56--> 00:43:00

The human re human reason cannot deduct no add anything to a by the nakida

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

many scholars confuse this

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

that is why they add to a bada and add to aqidah

00:43:11--> 00:43:11

why.

00:43:15--> 00:43:21

So, in Al Qaeda and I bother only what is written is allowed. So you have to solve in a particular way.

00:43:23--> 00:43:31

You have to go to hygiene a particular way fast in a particular way. everything to do with between you and Allah in a particular way. Akita the way you believe

00:43:33--> 00:43:36

is cast in stone in the Quran. And Sunnah Baba, so you can't interfere with it.

00:43:38--> 00:43:52

If you do bring in anything new into al Qaeda and Iboga It is called Mita blameworthy something which is to be condemned, because you add into the Akita and I bada can't do that.

00:43:53--> 00:43:57

Although there are many scholars today will try and wangle themselves in some kind of

00:43:59--> 00:44:08

conundrum, to try and say that you we can add this to the Akita and the Avada. And we can do this, but it all falls flat because

00:44:09--> 00:44:15

that is the immutable part of Islam. Then comes the Muhammad as a social affairs.

00:44:17--> 00:44:25

Scholars have set the law from the outset and have said that the rule about Mohammed is

00:44:27--> 00:44:41

that it is exactly the opposite of aqidah en ibid. What does it mean? It means that everything is allowed in Warhammer law, in economics, in politics that we address and so forth and so on.

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

Except that which has been forbidden by foreigners so now in fact, that isn't there is a maxim in the law, which says, an awful feel a Shia and Eva Illa fly by that. He said the llama says

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Everything is halaal or MOBA

00:45:07--> 00:45:10

everything except in a bada.

00:45:11--> 00:45:16

So the way you dress provided it is modest along

00:45:19--> 00:45:24

the way you run your economics provided it is not tainted with rebar along

00:45:25--> 00:45:31

the way you run your country around your house or you run your business, if it is interest rates and out

00:45:34--> 00:45:42

so that is given, open up for mankind, the fields of rationality, creativity and research on that level.

00:45:48--> 00:45:58

So there are different groups who say no, no, no, even the more I'm allowed to be done exactly as is done by Mohammed Salah. You can't do that you can't live in any world.

00:46:03--> 00:46:08

I remember Mona I'm sorry. But Laura Herman Ansari, Rahim Allah came in the 16th.

00:46:10--> 00:46:28

And he once gave a lecture he said he went to New York One day, he was invited by the Pakistanis of New York, because he was a Pakistani and they loved him. And he was a great martial law scholar. And they invited him to New York to come and address the Pakistanis in New York.

00:46:30--> 00:46:36

And when he came into the hall, every single Pakistani was dressed in Shalwar Kameez.

00:46:39--> 00:46:50

ABCs, of course, you know that I used to wear it when I was in Pakistan. I won't wear it here. Because obviously, I mean, we know what's a lovely dress, one of the most comfortable as J's that I've ever worn in my life.

00:46:53--> 00:46:55

But if I should wear it, Dr. lucado plays in field.

00:46:56--> 00:47:02

So the first thing he said he himself says, the first thing he said to his brothers, he said,

00:47:03--> 00:47:31

Hi, do you live in New York? This is not Karachi. You look like karate. But how are you going to convert these Americans to become Muslim if you expect them to a shallower commies? Because you seem to give the impression This is the first part of Islam. This is the first out there if you can't cross this piece, speed bump, sorry, then you can go anywhere. You first have to don't shower commies, then all the other things comes afterwards. He says impossible. You can't do this.

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

He says your Diem.

00:47:37--> 00:47:38

No more harmala.

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

It's different.

00:47:41--> 00:47:52

How you live in a particular geographic area. I mean, imagine when Shalwar Kameez in the North Pole, you die of the cold COVID.

00:47:56--> 00:47:57

So

00:47:58--> 00:48:39

I listened today and I know it's not easy, it's difficult. And I probably need another 10 of these kinds of papers to try and make understand. But the most important thing for you to understand today is that the three parts of the deep aim aqidah a, by the end, why am I not komamura that these things occur aqeedah and Iboga is immutable based on immutable law. But our social interactions is based. Like he said, tomorrow, if you can't find a day, you have to apply your mind. Last on the same probably the topic of my next lecture will be so what we've done Muslims is

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

we have

00:48:44--> 00:48:46

taken this muhammara

00:48:48--> 00:48:59

and I will give a practical example of economics. Today we have Islamic banking, we have Islamic economics, we have Islamic investments, we have all these things going around.

00:49:02--> 00:49:06

But you know, if you look at the world, and we look at Islam, and we look at all these

00:49:08--> 00:49:11

things, we are just walking the AI in the West,

00:49:12--> 00:49:23

whenever the waste, that's something we say Well, they've now got derivatives, whatever that may mean, I don't know. Example. So here we are Muslims, we have to find something.

00:49:24--> 00:49:28

adapt our law, to find something to get around the derivatives.

00:49:29--> 00:49:33

But remove some things and Islamism, naked Islamic

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

and in everything we do that we look at the West and say, well, they invented that. That's it looks a bit looks a bit dicey, you know, liberal of Riba and they say remove the Riba wash it out washing it under the tip and hang it up to dry and blow on it and say Bismillah and then you say well, this is now Islamic. This is now Islamic banking. This is

00:50:00--> 00:50:13

Hello, no. And we remain here and the width continues to go on. This is called adaptive HDR, you're dead behind the shades on as you go along.

00:50:15--> 00:50:38

And that wasn't the way sahaabah made transformative, HDR they transform the world. They don't say, well, let's first look at it like we have now Muslim personal law in this country, we say, well, we have the Bill of Rights, we have the Constitution, then we have Islamic law. So what we have to do is, we tweak Islamic law to tweak in with a bill of rights and the tweak into the Constitution. And maybe then parliament will pass it and

00:50:40--> 00:50:43

this is what we do this, I do and you need to

00:50:44--> 00:50:48

our young people need to have a change of mindset. mindset change.

00:50:49--> 00:51:29

We must start our own, like this, and I'll give examples of next weekend child will turn go on and look at some other companions that went to other parts of the world and what they did. They didn't adopt the Roman way of life or the Persian way of life when they conquered Persia and Rome. No, they started their own Islamic way of my life, the Islamic model of life, what Islam says, and others followed them. For more than 1000 years, the West followed Islam. You know that for more than 1000 years, a long time. 10 centuries, the West followed us we were there. And they followed us today to reverse. We they're there and we follow them.

00:51:31--> 00:51:39

Maybe we lack self confidence. Maybe we lack the knowledge about our Deen. But until and unless we're going to be transformative, transforming the world.

00:51:40--> 00:51:51

And we have a political situation in this country, which is obviously completely untenable. It's a rogue system that supports corruption, you know that nine other?

00:51:52--> 00:51:55

How do we reform the system?

00:51:57--> 00:52:12

duty of Muslims. That's why we sent to look at the system and to reform not the system, but to bring to transform that system with a new system called Islamic system. And I think the world is right and the right for that kind of thing. Well, the sick of democracy.

00:52:14--> 00:52:34

look at Europe or the democracy. Look, as I say, Don't look at America, corrupted, completely corrupted. And Islam is the only religion that has the ethical principles, ethics, to bring about a complete change of the model in which man wants to be governed on the dunya. So now allows him to guide us in Sharla

00:52:36--> 00:52:37

and make us of those who are

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

use our mind or intellect

00:52:42--> 00:52:45

look at things differently in order to put Islam

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

on top. That should be the objective that we should be on top not following, but we should be the leaders

00:52:53--> 00:52:57

allowed Allah Allah Samana como rahmatullah wa barakato.
