hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah

00:00:04--> 00:00:09

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

Allows vahana Tada

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

in the first verse revealed to the Navy salsa lamb says

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

it cannot be smeared because the Halak follicle insana, man Allah,

00:00:53--> 00:01:01

Cora or a broken crumb, Allah Allah Bella column, I'll insert my lambda

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

allows vahana tala in this verse.

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

set the stage for

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

the world in which we live in today.

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

And what is the world in which we live in today?

00:01:25--> 00:01:29

The world in which we live in today is the world of research,

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

of reading, of writing,

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

of going to school, going to university

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

where these things have become indispensable to life.

00:01:44--> 00:01:47

Before you didn't have to go to school 50 years ago,

00:01:49--> 00:01:56

you could get a job without being able to read or write. And you could live comfortably and live very well.

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

That is changed.

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

It has changed because the Koran

00:02:03--> 00:02:07

is laid down the foundation of progress in the time in which we live

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

and any nation

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

or person

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

or profession

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

or business

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

that does not look at itself from time to time.

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

review its rules and regulations and policies

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

will not be as progressive as those who do that.

00:02:44--> 00:02:49

So we are required as a nation of Diem

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

to reflect

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

upon the revelation which allows mahalo tala sent upon us

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

to reflect upon the methodology employed by the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahaba as to how to take this Deen form with

00:03:13--> 00:03:23

my dear brothers and sisters. The world was not made subservient to Islam until as late as 1924.

00:03:25--> 00:03:30

Do you know that we were the dominant power in the world up to 1924, which is yesterday,

00:03:32--> 00:03:40

from 1924, up to 2013, as we have it today in his Gregorian calendar, we are now in the lowest rung of the ladder.

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

We've dropped like a man who falls from a 50 story balcony.

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

Nothing to stop the ultimate

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

destiny of that person.

00:03:58--> 00:04:14

It means that for 1400, over 1400 years, we were the civilization, the religion, the example that everybody aspire to. We were the richest Noblesse noblest,

00:04:15--> 00:04:20

most progressive Omar in the whole of the world.

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

It is through us.

00:04:26--> 00:04:36

That scientific knowledge technology was transferred from the first university, both in Baghdad in the world.

00:04:37--> 00:04:49

The first hospital built in Baghdad, in the world. Not in America, not in England, not in France, Italy or Spain, or Russia. Or South Africa, no.

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

The models

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

the plans were all created, devised into

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

cemented to the highest form of success by those who call themselves Muslim by those who never took the eye off the court.

00:05:17--> 00:05:21

never took the I have the son of Mohamed Salah lorrison

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

never took the I have the commandments of allows

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

that we have been put here.

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

Not as a

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

church going nation.

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

We all know the church English.

00:05:40--> 00:05:48

We have the whole world as our Masjid at dounia Kula Masjid,

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

we practice our faith, our Deen our spirituality, whatever you want to call it in every part and square centimeter of the globe.

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

That is us. I world nation.

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

Today, I'm going to deviate a little bit from my normal lectures on the Quran.

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

Somebody has requested from me some time ago, and I don't know whether I'll do justice to this topic.

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

Is this something on the screen? Okay.

00:06:23--> 00:06:28

Somebody asked me to talk about the question of,

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

of madhhab.

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

Or the question of

00:06:37--> 00:06:44

the different schools of law. And as you know, you know, we we have to go to universities for years and years and years,

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

in order to

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

have some idea of

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

who soon will fit and fit on all these subjects. So, I'm going to try and squeeze it into 40 minutes or 50 minutes.

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

But to give an insight

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

into the development of a part of the deal, which is called a Sharia, or the law, or the fifth,

00:07:16--> 00:07:24

that by which we pray, that by which we transact, that by which we marry that by which we die and so forth and so on.

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

Now, in the development of the law,

00:07:32--> 00:07:42

there were four periods of development. As you know, this first day was the time of the Navy so solemn, that was a time when revelation when there was no

00:07:43--> 00:08:00

space between the revelation and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam had direct contact with allows Mahalo to Allah via revelation. Any question you wanted to ask, Who would come up to ask the question and the answer would be given.

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

After the death of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the demise of the Navy salatu salam Allahumma salli ala Muhammad

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

came the period of the companions,

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

companions

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

who

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

if you read

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

the sea route, the history of the companions

00:08:30--> 00:08:37

you will find that all of them were different. If I speak so slowly, I'll never get to the end of this lecture, but unfortunately I speak slowly. The older you get the slower you speak.

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

If you look at the companions, all of them are different.

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

All of them and expose different ideas had different personalities

00:08:52--> 00:08:57

at different ages, different on sometimes fundamental issues which confronted them.

00:09:02--> 00:09:14

What is it tell us about Muhammad Rasul Allah, he told us in Mohammed Salah Salam did not demand from his companion to be like him in terms of the mind.

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

He wanted to develop

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

a variety of scholars people who thought differently from each other

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

or based on the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:09:29--> 00:09:39

And the many examples that I can give you almost like abubaker was not like man was not like Ali and each one of them had their own qualities. Today when you send somebody to a university

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

people will say he studied at that university. So he is a Salafi or a Wahhabi or whatever it may be, or he comes from that institution show is a hanafy as on top of that institution he studied and the Boland associates so and so or so and so so he is like that person. He thinks like those people

00:10:01--> 00:10:09

He's from Diovan is a deobandis thinks like the people of the Oba he comes from the answer is as he thinks like the people of the Azhar.

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

But in the time of Muhammad Salah,

00:10:14--> 00:10:26

he created men who could apply their minds to the revelation, which allows for another set. Then came the period of the junior companions. And the success is what we call the tab Do

00:10:27--> 00:11:07

you hear me on the drama on the football every say that a tab, tab, a tab in the tab, enter the successes, those who came after this a harbor and the tab a a tab again, with the people who came after the successes. Those are the three generations there's an adage Hassan said those are the best generations then the fourth period of Islamic law is the flourishing period the period when it flourished, you know, in summary, you can see this with flowers and fruit and three suddenly out of out of winter it's certainly see the blooming and the flourishing and growing. So in the fourth period, we see this flourishing of Islamic law.

00:11:14--> 00:11:47

Let's talk a little bit about the first period the first period of revelation a lot stronger a citizen happier sir um so judge between them, according to what Allah has revealed. So, this is the command what is the command judge according to what Allah has revealed? Today you go to institutions, local institutions, even international institutions, there were study altered to give Hades people said howdy they will study, fifth level study or solo fit. But you find little emphasis on the study of the Quran.

00:11:49--> 00:12:06

For some reason, we lack a direct approach to the very foundation and source and root of who we are and what we are. So Allah says, Allah, Judge, according to what Allah has revealed,

00:12:07--> 00:12:12

in reminds me that when I was a young boy, there was a lady who said that the Prophet was a hanafy.

00:12:14--> 00:12:20

She said, she said to me, You see five I'm 100. And my father was 100, because the Prophet was 100.

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

The Prophet Alyssa Salaam

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

was not governed. I mean, that time we didn't exist Abu hanifa wasn't born.

00:12:28--> 00:12:34

This was the period the prophetic period was a period of growth and the formation of the Sun now

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

what is the sun the solar the actions, the words

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

the Tucker irati

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

things which nevissaint salaam agreed with?

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

In matters of Deen

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

in matters of Deen nabee Alison Salam was a prophet and a human being.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

We follow him as a prophet.

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

There many others they also follow him as a human being.

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

But there are many things that Mr. Salam did as a human being

00:13:12--> 00:13:29

which he told us look this idea as a human being so whether you want to accept when he came, for example, for example, which is very common, and I quote is, when the Prophet came to Medina, he saw that the date people who had date palms, he saw them they were

00:13:30--> 00:13:41

what's the word now? They were pollinating. You know, the bees pollinate the flowers. So what the farmers of Medina did, they were pollinating the date palms by hand.

00:13:43--> 00:14:00

Maybe they weren't enough bees, you know people use all these things. So the name is Hassan. When he came to Medina, I saw them doing this and he said, What are you doing? This is why we pollinating the palms with our beds, because it gives us a nice crop gives us a bit bigger crop. So let us know why messages.

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

So that we have the crop failed.

00:14:07--> 00:14:34

So whenever he says Sallam said, Sorry, man, I just gave you my own personal opinion as a human being just next year, just go back to pollinating it by hand. So now visa salad wasn't right. He illustrated this by the fact that he was in matters other than what he was saying for Rama Illallah buku many other issues with navasota would you follow in maintenance and so on, even at Burger What did he said by that?

00:14:35--> 00:14:52

He said to the hardware can be a habit once. He said no, no, no, no, no. You also don't can be a camp in front of the water wall so the enemy can get to the water. So he changed his mind. He said this is my decision as a human being I follow your decision. The other time was when he dug a

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

trench around Stan Medina by Wu's instruction salmaan, not his own. So then me

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

is a cylinder head, but it was some Sahaba who are vertical fanatical.

00:15:06--> 00:15:18

Like Abdullah Ahmad, the son of Satan. He used to use Navis Assamese to watch the Narcissus around walk around the tree. After his death he used to do the same as to walk around the tree as an extra Salah walk.

00:15:21--> 00:15:41

Of course, the other student of the nerissa salaam which we follow along the way, slipped away dragged we ate, because he commanded as he told asleep like this is a direct command from the Navy. So lasala in this period of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the deed was perfected, a Yamamoto lacantina continuous perfected what mantra Allah could name it and

00:15:43--> 00:16:10

the name of Allah was completed upon this oma and the Sharia was the basis of our life. The second period of the companions starts with the demeaned demise of bahamasair salaam in level in the 11th, year of the hegira, and ends with the appointment of Mongolia as the halifa. Now, the halifa shifted to way to Damascus, which is today being destroyed

00:16:13--> 00:16:19

in the year 41. So the period as a companions lasted for about six years

00:16:20--> 00:16:28

now, now than it was normal. They could not go back to maybe there's a problem that arose a question that arose.

00:16:30--> 00:16:35

They had to rely on their own brain power, they had to rely on their own intellect.

00:16:37--> 00:17:07

And there were many other factors which influenced the development of the law, for example, expansion of the state, they state, the Islamic State was no more now, just situated in Medina, the Islamic State spread to India to Pakistan, to avastar, to Central Asia, to Persia, to Yemen, to all to North Africa. So the Islamic land expanded, and Arabs came into touch with non Arabs with Persians with the Romans, and so forth and so on with the Chinese.

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

And at that time, the time of the Sahaba there were two sources of load for an incident and there was a third one called ht heart.

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

What is its chart?

00:17:20--> 00:17:24

When the NaVi Salaam sin was because they had the Quran and Sunnah that's all their head.

00:17:26--> 00:17:41

But how do they manage the Quran and Sunnah they manage the Quran and Sunnah through a process called ht heart. Sure, you know what it means to certain extent, his job means to apply your mind to exert your mind.

00:17:43--> 00:17:59

Now, you know, I may be talking, I'm not talking in the past tense, but the brothers and sisters, young people, especially young men and women, and talking in the present tense when I say str, I mean, today, we, as Muslims must practice he had to exert our minds

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

in extracting from the Quran and Sunnah that we should require for our daily life. This is not some fad that happened in the seventh century Arabia, chocolate bar, no, no, no. This is something which we have neglected, which we need to revive when the Navy Saddam Hussein was ineligible to Yemen. We saw saddam said I'm sending to Yemen to go and teach the people and be the judge and so forth and so on. So the Prophet asked him some questions property to him.

00:18:26--> 00:18:39

If you go there, by what will you decide the disputes if you do not find the rule in the book of Allah, how will you judge Where will you go if you don't find it in the Quran? He said, I will go to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah

00:18:41--> 00:19:01

then then I'll be again asked him and if he did not find the ruling the Sonia more I'll say to the Navy salam, I shall exercise my opinion. And I shall be no effort to do this now. Yeah, the word opinion doesn't mean just taking something out of the sky. Yeah, it means that he will exercise his mind

00:19:02--> 00:19:06

applied to the Quran you're not use Koran, not the Quran of Muhammad Salam

00:19:07--> 00:19:23

didn't belong to Him. It belongs to us. This Quran is our camera. Susan Ibiza Salaam say Tomas. When was it I will apply my mind. The Prophet is telling us as is oma apply your mind

00:19:25--> 00:19:30

to the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and spared no effort in doing that.

00:19:31--> 00:19:54

So it's Javanese exertion, of the intellect to match the world and the world. We have the world we live in the world, by the world. And then we and this one is an imperfect world we know we live in a very imperfect world. And Allah sent us the word. Caleb calama. Law, the word of Allah. Allah.

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

Allah, Allah, Allah Allah came from the heavens in perfect form.

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

down to this imperfect world. So we have this perfect world, this very imperfect world, imperfect, imperfect human beings, and allows us to negotiate

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

the Quran to fit into the world.

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

And how do we negotiate? How do we bring the Quran to fit into this imperfect world, we use each to heart.

00:20:29--> 00:20:43

So if you for example, now on travel, if you have come from Johannesburg, how 10 or you've come from kazoo Natal, and you're out and about in Cape Town, and the time of Salah comes.

00:20:45--> 00:20:52

And you don't have GPS or a cell phone or you like over 60 and you will not use the stuff even if you have it to find the Qibla

00:20:54--> 00:21:10

then you have to use HDR, you have to apply an executive mind. So now let's see where's the shadow Where did the sunrise where the sudden need to say that's more or less north east. So you've used to HDR. So even in that stage of use HDR,

00:21:12--> 00:21:27

this goes through the companions and successes. So after the aftermath, our became halifa in 41, that time of the junior companion started meaning those that were young with an emphasis on life and the successes.

00:21:29--> 00:21:38

Now in the time of the third period, after the companions, the companions themselves Tao dispersed.

00:21:40--> 00:21:57

They didn't stay in Medina, because there's Baraka in Medina or the Prophet is buried in Medina now. They left Medina they dispersed. Lots of they went about dad, lots of wind into Yemen and so forth so on, and was a to Cadiz there was them going out of Medina they took hotties with him.

00:21:59--> 00:22:11

And when this the enemies of Islam came and fabricated Hadith, they try to water down the DNS today we find in interfaith movements in the

00:22:13--> 00:22:26

West studying Islam, in the orientalist studying Islam. And we find that at some universities where Islam is being studied, there is a effort

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

to water down

00:22:31--> 00:22:36

the spirit and the veracity and the truth of Islam.

00:22:38--> 00:22:48

During this time, when the contaminants spread to schools appeared initially, of thought one was a school of thought of Medina, called

00:22:50--> 00:23:21

Hadith where the people of Medina depended mainly on Hadith. Why? Because they were living in the heart, land of Hadith. So they could refer to each other day and say, What did you hear from the Prophet, but those Sahaba terrible out of Medina, they didn't have that luxury, they've sometimes only had themselves and had a nice day ahead. So for them, especially, and in Iraq and developed a school board the School of opinion or, or

00:23:23--> 00:23:30

school of what is the School of opinion, it doesn't mean people use the opinion means they went to the Quran, apply their minds and extracted the law.

00:23:32--> 00:23:53

Now, the first period was the flourishing period period when Islam just broke out of his main heartland and became the Dean of the world. This started in the second century and carried on for 250 years. So for 250 years, Muslims were building hospitals,

00:23:54--> 00:24:06

telescopes, ships, universities, translated books, from from, from Latin, to Arabic,

00:24:07--> 00:24:11

writing treatises on medicine.

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

The Book of thapki, taboo tape

00:24:16--> 00:24:19

was used in French universities written by

00:24:22--> 00:24:26

a Muslim scholar right up to the 16th century, which is yesterday.

00:24:28--> 00:24:33

And in this period, also, the mother hubs came into being.

00:24:34--> 00:24:42

Now there were many of them, we know the obvious ones. And also in this time, as I said, the Islamic sciences was studied and recorded.

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

The first school was the Hanafi school

00:24:50--> 00:25:00

Namo hanifa, as we all know, as he was, he died when he was 78. Mashallah nice, long life span of 70 years and you

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

was born eight years after the hegira which means less than about 63 years or 60 years after the

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

after the death of the Navy, so lasala Musa, he was a silk merchant

00:25:15--> 00:25:16

was a businessman

00:25:18--> 00:25:19

and he lives in Kufa, Iraq.

00:25:22--> 00:25:36

And I can tell you now, that Abu hanifa had no idea that he was going to establish what we know today as the Hanafi madhhab. He had no idea he had no inkling at all that.

00:25:37--> 00:25:46

And the reason I say that is because he himself never wrote any books. He only taught and it was his students, Mohammed ashay, Bernie,

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

and other students of his

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

that wrote down the thoughts and teachings of evapo hanifa.

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

Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah,

00:26:04--> 00:26:04

I consider

00:26:06--> 00:26:09

to be the greatest legal mind

00:26:10--> 00:26:14

that ever lived, both in the East and in the West.

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

In

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

his approach,

00:26:22--> 00:26:42

remember hanifa didn't live in Medina, he wasn't surrounded by the Sahaba. In fact, all the harbottle he passed away when so he, and because there were mainly fabrications of Hades, he had to rely a lot on the Quran, not on Hadith, because this was long before the time of Bukhari and Muslim all those great had the subroto the Hadith together before that.

00:26:43--> 00:26:49

So he was a man, great thinker, great analytical thinker.

00:26:50--> 00:27:09

And we know today was a great analytical thinker, because from his follows about Abu hanifa said this was his fifth, he said, I follow Atlas book when I find a rule there in when I do not find the rule in it. I follow the Sunnah of our messenger and sound traditions from him

00:27:10--> 00:27:15

which have been transmitted by reliable persons. When I do not find the rule

00:27:16--> 00:27:21

in the Quran, knowing the sooner I follow the opinion of the companions.

00:27:22--> 00:27:29

But after that, he says, After the death of the companions, I follow no one's opinion. I use my heart.

00:27:31--> 00:27:42

So there's a body. He said. He was he drew extracted the law that he brought to us from the Quran, Sunnah and the Sahaba bus that we stopped.

00:27:44--> 00:27:50

As for the people who came after the Sahaba, the Tabby in the successes, he says, they use East

00:27:52--> 00:28:00

homebridge National regional. This was actually his words. He said, they are men and we are men. They apply their mind so we have to apply our mind

00:28:01--> 00:28:10

that Seema Baba, Rahim Allah. Then a school was the Maliki school. madrichim Nana's born in Medina

00:28:12--> 00:28:32

died at age 86. Even Malik was the longest of the four imams in lifespan. We love the very lamb was a very charming fellow if I make use modern language, very charming fellow two things I want to relate to you about him first. He was a he was a very

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

always a very well dressed man.

00:28:38--> 00:28:41

Very well test grade scholar. He was a teacher of Imam Shafi

00:28:43--> 00:28:49

and he's got a new set on silk cushions when used to teach us to sit on big sofa cushions

00:28:52--> 00:29:06

and his students used to say us who stars you know you're supposed to be show us example of being a poor man. And you know why do you sit on silk Washington Mashallah you dress like to the nines as they say you know, always well dressed in certain so cushions

00:29:07--> 00:29:11

you know, these people always only follow the Quran and Sunnah.

00:29:12--> 00:29:19

So he says, Allah says in the Quran says Allah says in the Quran, manhart Rama Zina tala. And let's see

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

what

00:29:23--> 00:29:32

it says. Allah says, Who is there to prohibit the good things which Allah has made her lovely sevens.

00:29:33--> 00:29:44

So he didn't just do it, because he felt he wanted to be modern or with it. No, he did it because it is a command it is found in the Quran when his wife died,

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

so that is from the Quran. When his wife died,

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

they buried his wife on his way home from the maqbara he went to a friend knocked on his door

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

friends in the students had Masha Allah shift, Imam, you've come to visit me You've just bailed your wife. You still have time to come visit me. Come inside Sit down. So he said Mashallah, what can I do for you? Since I've asked to come? I've asked. I've come to ask you for your daughter's hand in marriage.

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

Just buried his wife not even he didn't even go home yet.

00:30:26--> 00:30:36

Can you imagine? The man just buried his wife by the rooster before he got to me he's dead. He made a butt sideline and he went to ask why.

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

Because he said and

00:30:44--> 00:30:51

he said to me, woo, is not does not love my son, it is not of my own Ma.

00:30:54--> 00:30:59

This gives you an idea an indication of the piety.

00:31:00--> 00:31:18

Not just piety, like we have wearing a topi making Vicar or doing lots of things in theory saying that his piety now that is the piety, pious to live the cinema Pisces to live the horror that despite that is true.

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

So that was my Nana's as I said.

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

He was one of the teachers of Imam Shafi. So was

00:31:33--> 00:31:39

one of the students of one of the companions of Mr. bouhanni was also a teacher of Imam Shafi.

00:31:40--> 00:31:46

Now the speciality is is the magic school yet to speciality in his in his law. Every of every one of these

00:31:48--> 00:32:03

eponyms are leaders are creators, or developers of the schools had their own specialties. spectrum Malik was masala al masala, what is this? Mr. maryk said, if you're confronted with an issue,

00:32:04--> 00:32:13

and you don't know how to deal with the issue, there's nothing in the Sunnah. There's nothing in the Quran? How do you deal with an issue?

00:32:14--> 00:32:17

He says, Then one of the things you look at is

00:32:18--> 00:32:25

how beneficial would my answer be to the greater Muslim community.

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

So for example,

00:32:29--> 00:32:38

a case came, and the case was that a group of people killed one person, group of people came together and killed one person.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

So there were two views. One view is

00:32:43--> 00:32:51

the then you can only take a life for a life You can only take maybe the leader of that game should be his life should be taken for the life of the person they kill.

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

Mr. Malik said, that's,

00:32:58--> 00:32:58

that

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

can't accept it.

00:33:02--> 00:33:31

He said, what they asked him but why not? He said, You see what will happen is people will come to give to kill somebody. And if the angry people 99 will go free and one will be only his life will be taken. That's unfair. So Mr. Apple, Mr. Malik brought in the principle of common purpose. If there's a common purpose, everybody suffers the same. That was and he said, You must take the life of the whole group while to protect the lives of the community against people like that.

00:33:33--> 00:34:09

The second principle that Moloch had, which other scholars didn't have was that he relied on the acts of the people of Medina. He said, the actions of the people of Medina is a source of law. Why said because from the Prophet, people loved Medina and sahabas time the end of the Medina and the successes time, and they passed knowledge down the lines of the people of Medina there is a source of knowledge, others disagreed with it. Shafi disagreed with him. Bonhoeffer disagreed with him, said no, that can be a source of Robbie that then came out eponym, developer of the Shafi school

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

Idris born in Syria in Russia.

00:34:15--> 00:34:43

In 150, h he was born in the year bajada died. Some people say he was born on the night Abu hanifa died, but we can confirm that there was no internet and no telephone, no Telegraph, nothing so that is an impossible thing to say. And he died at the age of 54. So we've got very young tech was the youngest of the 40 Bob's only 54 years old. I it's unimaginable for me to think that a man could live to the age of 54 and produce what he produced

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

so pianola

00:34:47--> 00:34:53

I don't think he had time for anything else but to write because he wrote his own books are almost certain by Marisol was written by him.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

This is some of the words of Imam Shafi. I'm sure if he said

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

I'd love to have you go to Walla

00:35:03--> 00:35:17

Walla Buddha news at fear alpha the anila here all while okay number nine delay de la la vida de la Finca zero from our job to FICO to be as in Makati, Al Kitab, asuna Takata. Raja to

00:35:19--> 00:35:25

listen to the words of this great scholar, what did he say? He said, I've written all these books.

00:35:26--> 00:35:43

And I did my best in writing these books. But there must be mistakes in these books. Look at the man, great man. He didn't say this is the book. No, no, no, no. He says, I guarantee you there must be mistakes in these books, which I wrote, says because Allah says again,

00:35:44--> 00:36:14

Allah says, if it was from other than Allah, he would certainly fall in it many points of dispute. So his book is from other than Allah. So anything which comes from other than our last ones, and they weren't matters of dispute. So the 100 is dispute with a with a Chavez about some issues with the mannequins, because these are documents and insights that have been written by men and women like us, in a sense, we're not as knowledgeable as they, but they're not massively not profits, they not sinless.

00:36:15--> 00:36:24

So he Mushaf he says, Whatever you find in my books, that which contradicts the book and the Sunnah, then consider that I've revoked it,

00:36:26--> 00:36:32

throw it away. Anything you find my mother, Abu hanifa, says the same Mohammed Mohammed said the same.

00:36:33--> 00:36:46

Mr. Malik said the same. If you read these threes, they all said we were men we text each Jihad if you find mistakes, if you find we did what went against the Sunnah, or the Quran, leave it.

00:36:47--> 00:37:22

And Mussolini and Mussolini members his name Amazon a nice thing and moves on. He was the man to home. Imam Shafi handed the baton before he died was and he was a sharpie. I said in the second Sharpie, she was a great man. He set him up, shall we say, you find an authoritative Hadith and follow it and do not turn your attention to the view of anyone else. So again, taking this oma together and telling us our Sharpies and Hana fees and marquees and hammer please remember, your authority is not I

00:37:23--> 00:37:43

Shafi, your authority is not I Abu hanifa, your authority is not your authority is Mohammed salatu salam, and your first authority is the Quran of Allah subhanahu wa tada hamari school again, a manual of blog 77 years Born in Baghdad, died in prison, somebody say for his beliefs.

00:37:45--> 00:37:49

You know, if you read the faces of these people, you will find that they were fearless.

00:37:52--> 00:37:57

I mean, Imam Shafi was born in Syria. He studied in Makkah.

00:37:58--> 00:38:02

He lived in Yemen for a while. Then he went back to Baghdad.

00:38:03--> 00:38:08

But he had to flee from Baghdad for his life. Therefore, he went to Egypt and he died there.

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

Again, truth

00:38:13--> 00:38:19

in the humble, there was a question of the question came, was the Quran created?

00:38:21--> 00:38:23

Or was the Koran

00:38:25--> 00:38:39

is the Quran the word of Allah from the beginning and created? This is the question. It was the Quran created by Allah. Allah, Allah created Adam, was always the word of Allah.

00:38:41--> 00:38:48

Mr. humbler, looked at everything he said. The Quran is the uncreated word of Allah

00:38:49--> 00:38:55

always existed from the beginning. You can't separate the Kalam of Allah from Allah, how do you do that?

00:38:58--> 00:39:21

But the halifa at the time, the powers that be at the time took the other view. And they took the other view so strongly that they persecuted him. They put him in jail. And he refused to relent. Abu hanifa also put in jail, again, for reason was that he did not want to join what is called that time mainstream Islam.

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

He refused to become part of what some of our scholars call today.

00:39:29--> 00:39:32

They Islam of the majority in the mainstream Islam.

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

The halifa said you are the best leader and men become the cause. He said no.

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

So while if you don't become the Father, I put you in jail.

00:39:44--> 00:39:49

Mr. Musashi underwent similar struggles in the time the martyrs Elijah, that's a long discussion. I won't go this

00:39:51--> 00:39:57

one at all right. Now, you and I know that

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

they are the

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

Differences between the mother and we can mainly talk about the sheriff. And humbly I mean Shafi and the Hanafi mother. And we are taught

00:40:10--> 00:40:18

from a very young age in fact, it is handed down from father to son, that my child You are a shell fairy.

00:40:19--> 00:40:26

everybody else's Robin, you are right. Or my son, you're a Hanafi everybody else is wrong, and you are right.

00:40:27--> 00:40:30

Even if you don't take your life, you never put your hands here.

00:40:34--> 00:40:41

Maliki's stone, even if you take a leave, you always keep your hands dirty, and so forth and so on and so forth and so on.

00:40:44--> 00:40:46

How did this come about?

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

When

00:40:52--> 00:41:00

people at Mr. Chabot hanifa all of them said this is my opinion, if it is right, if it comes from Allah, if it is wrong, it comes from me and the devil.

00:41:01--> 00:41:04

Allah and His Messenger are free from responsibility.

00:41:06--> 00:41:18

Why do they say these things? And why we are Why are we we are today. Today we are in an eight core tech lead. And this started from the fourth century.

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

And what is that lead that lead is blind following

00:41:26--> 00:41:45

and support and carrying out of the roles of a mother or a metalhead without inquiring into its veracity and strength and without comparing it to the view of other scholars and without searching for the original proofs from the Quran and Sunnah. on which it must be based.

00:41:47--> 00:41:50

That so for 700 years,

00:41:52--> 00:42:04

Muslims made that lead. They were either Shafi hanafy, humbly, and there are many other mothers. So they had a mother hub. And so many other people had mothers who died along the way because they didn't have enough adherence.

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

In the 13th century, there was a reawakening.

00:42:09--> 00:42:11

This is after 700 years,

00:42:12--> 00:42:27

what happened 100 years ago, people, scholars came and said that you don't have to follow a particular school, there is no people teach us, you know, say, Oh, you know,

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

you're not allowed to eat protein.

00:42:38--> 00:42:45

And if you were a shark, if you touch a woman you will do is broken, you know, even if you're your own wife, you know.

00:42:47--> 00:43:11

And we live by these rules, and we insist that we are right. And we become fanatical about it. So much so that people won't allow their daughters to marry Sharpies either the boys or Shafi or the girl is happy and the boys are happy and the girl is a Shafi they say, Well, you know me, but you know, I'm not really happy with this. Imagine the boys a homily

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

or a Maliki in Cape Town.

00:43:19--> 00:43:32

We come we've come to the point where we think that you know, these are different people from us a different you know, maybe mark is a black people and none of us are white people. Sharp is a colored people's

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

way maybe, you know, all the Sharpies and the east and automatically the north and, you know, we come to think we've come to think like we've come to divide ourselves in other words, so, secondly, what happened was that the people started teaching comparative law.

00:43:49--> 00:43:55

If you go to the aza, for example, started first you will be taught hanafy law, Shafi law, Family Law and so forth. And so

00:43:58--> 00:44:05

not to criticize the one to find, see if this is this is the bug beta Bobby's that

00:44:10--> 00:44:13

what is the new route that we should go?

00:44:14--> 00:44:27

Now we have this route. These are money, you know it money comes in, we forget all our hanafy ship and chaffey ship, we become just what they call Islamic financial advisors.

00:44:28--> 00:44:59

And it's happened I've been in that field. I know what I'm talking about. When the semi finance hit the world. You know what happened? The hammer is great Hanafi scholars were no more Hanafi scholars, great Java scholars were no more Shafi scholars gate homily. And now we settled on one table, and we wanted to find the solution to how we can make all these things Hello. And wherever we find the answer martial. It's a good thing. Nothing wrong with it. So we've taken it from Ahmed Mohammed

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

But who said that contracts, any contract is valid provided it doesn't go against the Quran and Sunnah. And we took from Sha three about walk off and we took from here and we brought them all together and Mashallah we can present to the world and Islamic financial model and package which will be acceptable to the whole world. Mashallah.

00:45:22--> 00:45:24

And we've done it in Muslim family law.

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

You know, I remember in the early days, the HANA fees in the north, for them, for a woman to ask for the manage to be broken. To ask for a fast was a no, no, no, no, no, no, no. woman had no right to ask for a facade. Only a man was allowed to divorce his wife. So

00:45:46--> 00:45:56

the woman would live in abuse for our life because she couldn't go to the mall. And now the shift to ask her today, because it wasn't part of the hanafy rule.

00:45:57--> 00:46:33

wasn't part of the FEMA bond if I didn't allow it, but just realize America family. So today Alhamdulillah that is now we've cleared that we've said Mashallah, we can said women can come in the north in kwazulu Natal, does Allah now sit and say, No, we can. A woman can come and have a marriage and out by scholars and so forth and so on. So, what I'm saying is that if I say to you, that the way forward is what the way forward is to apply as we've said, like the NaVi Sallam said to Martini Java to apply,

00:46:34--> 00:46:55

we need to transfer the experience in in the money world and in the marriage world, to all the other areas of life. Now I know this is not a task which we can achieve overnight. What am I actually saying? That when you say now what Jeff What have you been talking about to us today? What is the point of all this? The point of all this is

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

that

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

you know when you go to the supermarket

00:47:04--> 00:47:24

or the factories inside the suit and decide to compete, makes Colgate toothpaste you go then you have to go in the factory and and go down the line and make the toothpaste and put it no no. All you do is you go to pick and pay you go on the shelf you see 1000s of items called toothpaste and you choose one you put it in your basket and you pay for it.

00:47:25--> 00:47:39

But you know, that is a factory executives mess of factory called it factory a mess of place where they make all these things. So what we've been doing this for 700 years, we've been going to the market of

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

pecan pie.

00:47:43--> 00:48:02

So he said I'm a sharpie. So this is I take it off the shelf ready made and I use it. I don't ask what is the ingredients where it comes from? What we need to do now is our young people need to ask the question, Mr. machete, when he said a particular thing we dedicated from

00:48:04--> 00:48:10

when Abu hanifa said something where does it come from? After all the garden from the Quran and Sunnah.

00:48:11--> 00:48:33

And that is the objective of the study of faith. And Allah said today we have lost out in life because we've closed that door who said well, Shafi mother is complete I just go there. And you mom Shafi sister Mr. necklace I stand like that. Now Shafi is made to note in the father by hand of a brother standing next to me, he stands like this.

00:48:34--> 00:48:41

Why is he standing like that? Do I ever ask myself? Why am I making in the morning and find yourself? Why am I mean?

00:48:42--> 00:48:45

I mean, it's such a beautiful draw. What's wrong with this? I know he's

00:48:47--> 00:48:47

humble isn't?

00:48:49--> 00:48:52

Enough. Oh, Allah guide me. These people don't have to do.

00:48:55--> 00:49:02

Unfortunate unfortunately for us, it didn't stimulate us all it did was it divided us? What did you do today to stimulate

00:49:03--> 00:49:22

young people? I want to find it. I want to find the professor sort of way did he do this? Why did we do is this different? Where does that come from? That is what we must do. We must go back to the source back to the source. And if we do use the mothers, we can't use it like family say you just use the easy ones.

00:49:25--> 00:49:29

If you use just the easy ones in the mothers, you're gonna run into big trouble.

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

Okay, what I'm also saying to you is

00:49:34--> 00:49:39

please, if you're going to do research on your own use it only for yourself don't become early

00:49:41--> 00:49:57

on I mean by all the research, you're allowed to do your own research you're allowed to scrape and read and read books and but only for yourself unless you become a scholar. You learn Arabic or didn't institution you learn, but all of us allows what Hunter is going to ask him

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

who said you must be punished

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

Shafi

00:50:01--> 00:50:09

who said you must be a hanafy? Who said you must be a Maliki? Did I tell him to tell him to be 100? Finished?

00:50:11--> 00:50:17

Or did I send you by for arm? And as a musician? What did you do? You put on the shelf.

00:50:18--> 00:50:23

You put the sooner in a book of Buhari, and you said, I'm a sharpie.

00:50:25--> 00:50:32

So what we need to do is, all of us, we have a responsibility, each one in our own way, need to say to ourselves,

00:50:34--> 00:50:41

and as I said, we can't use the concessions. Let me give you example of what can happen if you use concessions, as final.

00:50:45--> 00:50:48

Imam Malik says

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

that

00:50:55--> 00:50:56

wouldn't be witnesses

00:50:59--> 00:51:01

are not required

00:51:02--> 00:51:02

at any

00:51:09--> 00:51:10

event.

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

But he also says

00:51:18--> 00:51:33

that you must advertise the Nika you can't go home with your wife and consummate the marriage until you have advertised the marriage. But at the nicca itself, you can just add the bride and bridegroom

00:51:35--> 00:51:35

in a story.

00:51:39--> 00:51:41

Mmm, Abu hanifa says

00:51:45--> 00:51:49

a marriage is valid without the permission of the Father.

00:51:57--> 00:52:03

Mr. maryk says, you can get married without a dowry. No need to mention the dowry at the time of nickel.

00:52:04--> 00:52:09

So some clever fella could come along and say, Well, I'm gonna put all three together.

00:52:10--> 00:52:11

No, daddy,

00:52:12--> 00:52:13

No daddy

00:52:14--> 00:52:16

know what this is?

00:52:19--> 00:52:22

He said to his girlfriend in the back of the time, he says abusing alcohol?

00:52:25--> 00:52:33

Because he says Well, you see, these are these are the monitor. One says you don't need witnesses. The other one says, You don't need a guardian. The third one says you don't.

00:52:35--> 00:52:46

So one issue on which all the Aloma agree is that you can take piecemeal from each one and make a new mother

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

and say, well, you seem Shafi say that.

00:52:50--> 00:52:59

And why can't you do that? Because you need to go and find out why they said it. So the objective of my lesson to you today is to say to you

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

that yes, I understand you're a chef, but you're actually not a chef, you're a Muslim. I always make this point.

00:53:07--> 00:53:10

You're not going to be questioned on def pm as a chef.

00:53:12--> 00:53:39

If Mr. Chavez ran away from you, if you're going to come to him and sell chef Marshall or your mom, I follow these Sorry, I didn't say that. In fact, in my lifetime, I'm sure of his lifetime, there was no mother of Shafi. So you say Oh, that baton after my time. My mother came into existence after his death. So the Hanafi berachos, the humbling mother, so you call him up? And say, Mom, you know, I followed you so you have to put a word in from you know, I prayed like you said, I should pray.

00:53:41--> 00:54:05

I extracted my low from Allah Koran. And from the Sundar Mohammed sermon, you should have done the same. So what I advise in encouraging young people to do is, is to review your connection with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and with the Koran, which allows for how did I say that all I'm saying to you

00:54:10--> 00:54:12

isn't is nice if somebody should ask you,

00:54:14--> 00:54:30

Daddy, Mummy, uncle, Why'd you do that? And you could say, well, the prophets, Allah Salam said in English answer that. Or you say, Why do they say, Well, unless it's in the Koran that I

00:54:31--> 00:54:37

am and this is confirmed MSA by Imam Shafi are confirmed by Mr. Bahari Oh confirmed by him.

00:54:38--> 00:54:53

Also, if you are just to Shafi your whole life, these four Maddox consists of four parts of the circle each 120 5% so if you only Shafi you only confident to add 25% in your life you've lost out on the other 75%.

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

So young people should go to the other scholars as well and compare and say

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

And see because the truth can only be one.

00:55:04--> 00:55:16

There are many scholars who say, if you look at everybody Shafi America, if we look at one question that they differed on they can only be one right answer.

00:55:17--> 00:55:22

can be two right answers. Three, right? Yeah, we believe like they say, I'm gonna say a

00:55:24--> 00:55:26

word was alone. Swanton says

00:55:30--> 00:55:47

yeah, you were Latina. hamanaka Allah wa t on Rasool. We're only unrefined and has artificial intelligence. Allah says if you design anything What must you do? defer it to Allah and His prophets are the words wherever there are differences you will find the final answer in the Quran and Sunnah.

00:55:48--> 00:55:57

So many scholars say the Hanafi few schaff if you're humbling, there's only one correct view all these four views they can only be one current view

00:55:58--> 00:56:22

where it's a task to task but you see we ruled the world when we did that. When we exercise our minds, we rule the world and we will rule the world again inshallah. If you go back to using this accolade allows has given us and to go back to the Quran and Sunnah Mohammed salatu salam O Allah Allah Allah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
